Are you awake? Are you working? It’s almost 2 AM and we’re in the middle of the night and what I’ve heard about you makes me believe that you must be working right now. I’ve heard that you don’t sleep much, so it’s probably a good time to talk to you I guess?

Okay, let’s do it.
You must be hearing about all the lynching and the abusing that has been going on in our country regarding a particular religion and its sentiments. People who have been violent say that whatever they’re doing is only in the interest of this country. The other side, however, is silent for now or maybe screaming but in vain. And you too say nothing. So I thought I needed a few answers from you.
Since when did this country become a Hindu Rashtra Dear Mr P.M.? As much as I understand and know, our constitution which runs this humongous country’s administration says clearly that we’re secular. If you don’t know yet, here is how the preamble goes:

” WE, THE PEOPLE OF INDIA, having solemnly resolved to constitute India into a SOVEREIGN, SOCIALIST, SECULAR, DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC and to secure to all its citizens:

JUSTICE, social, economic and political;
LIBERTY of thought , expression, belief, faith and worship;
EQUALITY of status and of opportunity; and to promote among them all
FRATERNITY assuring the dignity of the individual and the unity and integrity of the Nation;
IN OUR CONSTITUENT ASSEMBLY this twenty-sixth day of November, 1949, do HEREBY ADOPT, ENACT AND GIVE TO OURSELVES THIS CONSTITUTION.

And since you love to converse in Hindi because ‘Matrabhaasha’, here is the Hindi version of it :

हम, भारत के लोग, भारत को एक संपूर्ण प्रभुत्वसंपन्न समाजवादी पंथनिरपेक्ष लोकतंत्रात्मक गणराज्य बनाने के लिए, तथा उसके समस्त नागरिकों को:सामाजिक, आर्थिक और राजनैतिक न्याय, विचार, अभिव्यक्ति, विश्वास, धर्म और उपासना की स्वतंत्रता, प्रतिष्ठा और अवसर की समता, प्राप्त कराने के लिए,तथा उन सबमें,व्यक्ति की गरिमा और राष्ट्र की एकता और अखंडता सुनिश्चित कराने वाली, बंधुता बढ़ाने के लिए,

दृढ़ संकल्प होकर अपनी संविधानसभा में आज तारीख 26 नवम्बर 1949 ईस्वी (मिति माघशीर्ष शुक्ल सप्तमी, संवत दो हजार छह विक्रमी) को एतद् द्वारा इस संविधान को अंगीकृत, अधिनियमित और आत्मार्पित करते हैं। 

Read the highlighted parts. So if we run by it, the constitution, then why are people doing things against it and still are getting away with that easily. Since you’re from the ruling party and you have the complete control of the government, I really want to know what is your policy towards the Muslims or people other than the Hindus of the country? And please be blunt and honest. What does your party or RSS or Shiv Sena or VIHIP or all of you actually want? What’s going on in your head?

And what I don’t understand at all is that since when has the word ‘secular’ become a derogatory term now in India by those who go against our constitution? Why do people call one ‘sickular’ if they support humanity instead of one particular religion or caste?

Do you not accept our constitution? Do you hate Muslims or Christians or Sikhs? What is it? Why is there so much of hatred towards each other? If you want to remove them completely from this country, why don’t you just pass a bill and do it once and for all? Why so much politics over it? You have the power, right?

Or just declare this country to be a Hindu Rashtra like Nepal. But then you’ll have to leave Kashmir because obviously Kashmir includes Muslims. Muslims follow Islam. That’s not your religion.

Make Khans of Indian film industry go away from this country, be it Shahrukh or Salman or Amir, they’re Muslims right? But can you actually do that?

And why the hell is Late APJ Abdul Kalam so ridiculously famous over here? Change his name to APJ Atul Sharma or something Hindu, since your fans are changing Mughal roads to Hindu roads and Ahmedabad to Karnavati.

You like saffron? cool, wear it, eat it, sleep on it and change the color of our national flag to saffron with an ‘OM’ symbol marked on it. Once you change our country and constitution to a Hindu state, who’s there to stop you?

That way, at least we all will be clear that our country is not secular anymore. We all will behave accordingly.

Tell me this, why do Indians teach their kids in the schools to be secular when in the future the kids will grow up and they’ll get to know that all they read was a big lie? Why do you allow killing people on the basis of their religion if we are all a fraternity? No answers? Right.

You should better make our country a Hindu Rashtra limited to itself. No globalization whatsoever. We’ll make in India and sell within India. Who cares about the huge borrowed funding from the Christians of the world?

And please when you do all of this, declare Adolf Hitler to be your idol as well, because then he won’t be a bad guy, he’ll just be a hero who tried the same stuff as you. True blood matters you see?

Can you do all of this? If not, at least show your side. What side are you on really?

Whatever you do, we, your fellow countrymen will make sure that the country runs according to the constitution. In peace and harmony. And don’t you worry at all because we’ll keep being secular till the last breath we take. Because that’s what our country is. A secular state.

– A common Indian who didn’t vote for you. Proud.
