I was watching a British made cartoon with the kids today. It's called Peppa Pig. In this episode, they dressed up as Roman soldiers and played at being Romans. They walked around saying "veni, vidi, vinci". At the end of the cartoon the narrator said "everyone enjoys pretending to be Romans". Imagine! The nerve of these British cartoon writers! Indoctrination of Britain's children with the war slogan of a nation that enslaved, brutalised and raped and pillaged a thousand times more than Mughals ever did. Don't make me give you a history lesson please. Romans ravaged these lands, and built them up in arguably equal measure. As brutal as they were, they were the time stamped legacy of this land, and Britain wouldn't be what it is without them.Now extrapolate the same reply for 800 years and also add, we were sold as slaves, our culture denigrated, our temples destroyed, our institutions demolished and Women and children raped and sold in bazaars. And THEN contemplate the CONTEMPT we have for them and their religion. And for all those who claim we "acknowledge" their "mercy". DISGUSTING.
And yet, there won't be newspaper articles, protests, flag burnings, Twitter barrages and rape threats against the cartoon makers in Britain. Why not? What the Romans did to the Britons was shocking by your standards. But because in this country, people aren't hung up over identity politics and communalism as a means to acquire votes, people regard history as history, nothing more. For you however, you can barely contain the mouthwatering thought of "trans-temporal payback in absolutist terms"...
Expect payback in time.
It would be a chilling statement for all Pakistanis and Indian Muslims alike, were it not for the simple reality that your chai walla chosen "generational equaliser and restorer of historical justice" was such a useless good for nothing who routinely cries over not having enough Rafales to save him from embarrassment a year ago, cries over the painful creation of Pakistan in 1947 out of supposed Bharati lands, and cries over China pulling a fast one and occupying territory right under his nose. This walking comedy you have chosen to hug and cuddle your way to restorative justice for all those awful evil crimes committed by simple medieval expansionist empires is what will ultimately hold your nation in a state of limbo, where folks like you who drink too much of the state Kool aid actually will waste your life's efforts trying to argue for the right to destroy the Taj Mahal of all things. Man, please keep it up. We love it.
