We do not like those who do not agree with us, irrespective of their caste, creed or race
Satbir Singh Bedi | 31 Jan 2014

We do not like those who do not agree with us, irrespective of their caste, creed or race. If one is a pucca Sikh, he is not going to like somebody who says that 1984 riots were not genocide of Sikhs but were anti-Sikh riots, that Operation Blue Star was not ill-conceived, that Dogra rulers of Kashmir had not betrayed the Sikh Kingdom.

If one is a staunch Muslim, he is not going to like those persons who say that Israel has a right to exist and Palestinians should stop terrorist activities, that Modi had not engineered Gujarat riots, that Jammu and Kashmir is a part of India, that all Indian Muslims should sing Vande Matram, that there was Ram Janambhoomi at the site of Babri mosque.  If one is a nationalist, he is not going to like anyone who agrees with our Prime Minister, Manmohan Singh that British Raj did good things for us, who says that Bhagat Singh was not a great martyr but  was a terrorist and Gandhi was right in not defending him, who tells us that Sardar Patel would not have proved a better Prime Minister than Jawahar Lal Nehru, who says  that Netaji Subhash Chander Bose did not bring independence to us but the independence was brought to us by Gandhi.  If one is a keen supporter of Congress, he is not going to like anyone who criticises Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi or any of the Gandhi Nehru family, who says that Congress is a Pseudo Secular party, who opines that AAP is better than Congress, who says that Congress is responsible for all the scams and corruption.  To sum up, birds of a feather flock together.
