No Ideas Among "Hindu Right"?

Not according to Aaatish Taseer, son of the late Salman and Tavleen, who spouts off in NYT against the "Hindu Right":


He even quotes Rajeev:

“So if you are an embattled Hindu, or even an atheist Indian,” Rajeev Srinivasan wrote in the right-wing magazine Swarajya, “you feel there is an entire constellation of powers with a negative intent arrayed against you, and that they have created a galaxy of sepoys, especially in media and academia.”
Historically, a “sepoy” was an Indian soldier serving in the British Army. It has become a favorite jibe on the right for an Anglicized liberal elite that was seen to be working against its own country.

Taseer babbles about the "Hindu Right" not having any ideas - I dunno, we've churned out plenty of ideas on just this one blog alone. It seems more like the Indian Left being the intellectually bankrupt ones. He only seems to want to project his own narrative onto others.

NY Times has become a power broker rather than a news outlet. Not only that they will not publish any writings by dissenters, they will not even print a letter sent to them challenging their core theme.
