Within the last 24 hours:

BJP activists attack Arundhati Roy’s house (and broke a flower pot belonging to Ms. Roy).

BJP threatens actor who plays gay lover (by entering his residence).

The BJP scares me. I’m not so scared by political outsiders like Ram Sene as I am by BJP. It is the second largest national party in India, and has no respect for property rights. It is expected that party minions don’t know what property rights are, but with BJP, I doubt if its leaders know and respect it either.

I’ll take a socialist dynasty and debate it on issues of governance any day, instead of a fundamentalist party and debate it on whether Ram was born in a 15 sq. ft. area in Ayodhya.
