This is a Government by the RSS, For the RSS – Teesta Setalvad

Date:

Newsclick interviewed the eminent civil rights activist and journalist Teesta Setalvad on the the ongoing communal tensions in the country, the ideological agenda of the Modi government and its contradiction with the secular values of the state. She says that the current government is guided by an unconstitutional body with a majoritarian agenda — the RSS — and hence the attack on secular values is bound to continue. The long term roadmap of the RSS is to convert the Indian nation into a Hindu Rashtra. According to her, hate mongering is being done to provoke the minority and in response, plan another massacre like Gujarat riots . Teesta feels that in order to reclaim the secular nature of the state, not only the secular political parties, but also intelligentsia and the social activists have an important role to play. Building movements on the ground for democratic and secular values is the only way forward.
