Why Modi appeals to Hindus: B.Raman

Excellent article by B.Raman. Though we do not have to always agree with all his articles, some of which are of the Dhimmi-Lite variety, we have to take those that conform to our viewpoint.

From his article, it looks like Shri B.Raman reads this blog!!

Instead of spending their time searching for abusive expressions in the dictionary and in their copy-book of such expressions, if these self-styled secularists had only visited the Web sites, discussion groups and blogspots of members of the Hindu community not only in India, but also in other countries of the world -- particularly in the US -- they would have noticed something, which might have given them cause for introspection.

They would have noticed that Modi is becoming the icon of a growing number of Hindus not only in India, but also in the Hindu Diaspora spread across the world. The support for him is not confined only to the Gujarati-speaking Hindus of the world. It is spread right across the Hindu spectrum -- whatever be the language or ethnicity or place of origin of the Hindus concerned.

“The Vedanta recognizes no sin it only recognizes error. And the greatest error, says the Vedanta is to say that you are weak, that you are a sinner, a miserable creature, and that you have no power and you cannot do this and that.” - Swami Vivekananda

While the pseudo-seculars and 3M axis have labeled the Hindus as "weak, sinners and miserable creatures" Modi has put forward the idea that Hindus are strong, are great, and they have the power to do a lot. That is among many reasons for his broad appeal.
