The way I understand it.. 'nationalism and patriotism' are not so
bankrupt a phenomenon so as to be divorced of 'secularism &
However, the figure of 'we' the 'suffer'ers in your argument is
interesting. Is it geographically bound or otherwise? Whats the
imagination of 'we'?
Is it 'We' the Indians? Or 'We- The Hindu's"? Or ' We- Who hate all
religions but our own' or 'We- who only hate Muslims and Christians'
or ' We - who hate' or ' We- In a bad mood today'?
