Indian Liberals Are Not Liberal

But the biggest challenge to liberalism today is a fundamental lack of integrity. The unwillingness to take a stand based on principle, whether it is against dynasty in politics, or to stand up for inconvenient truths like the exodus of Kashmiri pandits and their refugee status, or the degenerate and pernicious activities in Bollywood aligned with ISI, or the inconsistency flagrantly displayed to gain votes by milking Sabarimala. A gratuitous giveaway given to the Nehru-Gandhi family, no matter how atrocious or undemocratic their behavior might be, whether it is with matters of National Tribune or Bofors or corruption by Vadra or the disrespect shown by Rahul Gandhi towards the entire cabinet of the country, is a glaring contradiction in terms.
