Time for Modi critics to just shut up
What's the big deal in sacrificing a little freedom of expression if the objective is to show Modi in a positive light and make the economy grow faster?
Of late, there’s been a lot of whining about the new climate of intolerance that has followed the coronation of Narendra Modi as India’s new king, or if you will, India’s new prime minister (the technical term for ‘king’ in a parliamentary democracy). This never-ending whining about the repression of dissent—almost all of it from people with a known or unknown track record of Modi-bashing—has to stop. And it has to stop now—before it becomes necessary to repress it.
