In an open letter to Mr. Ashok Singhal, a Hindu woman writes where we will all head if India becomes a Hindu nation by 2020, as he declares.
Dear Mr Ashok Singhal,
As far as I am concerned, I will formally convert to a religion called Humanity and leave the earth for a better planet since there will be no place for women like me in this Hindu World. Maybe, Pluto is the answer I am looking for.
Before ending this letter, I wish to remind you something. I assume you must be really proud of Hinduism and it might be the essence of your life. You must be ready to go to any lengths to make it flourish and give human beings the benefit of being Hindu. But, have you forgotten that the basic elixir of Hinduism is acceptance of differences and co-existing without harming each other?
Saffron might be the color you’re chasing, but India will always be incomplete without White and Green. The constitution makes us all equal in the eyes of Bharat, and you can’t change that in five years. Or a lifetime.
