It is now out: RSS wants Mr Modi billed as the BJP's PM candidate. It also expects everyone in the party to fall in line.
Should this nightmare come true what would it speak of:
Muslim capacity and standing?
International politics, law and order?
Indian fight against terrorism?
And then what would happen to:
Muslims' sense of belonging, patriotism?
Those Hindus, Muslims, Christians, Sikhs etc who hold him a criminal and would yet have to work under him?
India's unity and integration as a nation?
Condemnability of Islamist's terrorism?
Could this lead to:
Mass dejection of minorities?
Definite slide of some elements towards terrorism?
Justification for the jungle raj, retaliatory violence, terrorism?
Loss of faith in law, judiciary, state apparatus?
WILL YOU REMAIN THE SAME AGAIN?
