Open bigotry is a cause of worry
In India, taking offence is a right and an obligation the devout embrace with religious zeal
In Ahmedabad last week, at two different locations, I saw this slogan written assertively—Hindu dikrio, love jehad (sic) thi savdhan! (Hindu daughters, watch out for love jihad). Someone had half-heartedly whitewashed the incendiary statement, maybe after someone complained, or (more likely) maybe because assembly elections were over and the alarmism had served its purpose. But the attempt to wipe it out was so poor that you could read the words clearly, as if the person removing it did so because he was told to do so, and not because he was outraged by it.
