No, there are other tribes also, the pseudo-socialists, the Lutyens, the Jholewallahs, the award-returners, who would cry at injustice to Muslims and keep quiet about injustice to Hindus, who would attend the functions organized by American embassy or British High Commission, guzzle the booze and food, talk wisely about the poor in India and return to their homes in their cars to repose in their air-conditioned bedrooms.It sounds like if one doesn't agree with the fascist Hindutva ideology (of BJP), one is branded a Marxist in India, these days.
Indian supreme court seems to be very interested in removing some medieval practices in both Hinduism and Islam, and modernizing the religions. When it does that to Islam, it is branded anti-Muslim.
The Supreme Court is not partial. Even yesterday, they put off the Sabarimala final decision pointing out that the religions should not be picked up one by one and all practices against women in all religions should be put away with a uniform rule (the Zoroastrians also discriminate against women).
Congress is a political party, it will act in a particular way only if that brings them vote. They are least bothered about any ideology, whether it is breaking locks, putting idols or he temple visits of the heir-apparent during the Karnataka elections and who resigned as the Congress president and scurries unknown destinations for meditation or whatever every month. Seems to have some mental problem. I never needed any such escapades.
