Indian constitution and democracy is in danger?

Recently four supreme court's top judges held unprecedented press conference to inform citizens of India about danger to democracy. Yeshwantha Sinha is talking about danger to constitution and democracy. Citizens are talking about it .Now The May 8 letter written by Delhi Archbishop Anil Couto to priests and religious leaders in the Delhi archdiocese has created a huge controversy and resulted in sleepless nights to the BJP leadership, which is facing a threat by the closing of ranks by opposition parties. The letter refers to the current turbulent political atmosphere in our country which poses a threat to the democratic principles of the Constitution and secularism. It calls upon Christians to pray for the nation especially ahead of the 2019 parliamentary elections. The BJP feels stung by the contents of the letter because of the expected negative repercussions not only in the country but the whole world. Home Minister Rajnath Singh reacted cautiously by saying that the government does not discriminate on the basis of caste, sect or religion. The sharp reaction, which is the distinguishing trademark of RSS thinking, reportedly came from Union Minister Giriraj Singh who said that the Archbishop's statement and appeal amount to nothing less than sedition. To quote him, "The Archbishop is trying to create the situation of a civil war in the country and trying to break it into pieces.” The Sangh Parivar and the ruling BJP need honest heart searching.The former president Pranab Mukharji had advised RSS top brass the plurality of the nation. Their policies have emboldened the communal elements to do anything in the name of Hindutva or their brand of 'narrow nationalism'. The PM and other big leaders maintained silence on violent incidents which gave the impression that any atrocity is acceptable if it helps vote catching mechanism. Actually and allegedly it is they who have adopted policies which may lead to widespread conflicts which may result in breaking the country. There is fear on faces, suspicion in minds, and hatred in the air. Dalits, minorities and the Muslims feel threatened and severely marginalised. They may capture power again in 2019 but let them think at what price. By laying the foundations of estrangement and disintegration? Four precious years have been lost in rhetoric, promises and flip-flop. Now only one year is left. Let the party do some concrete work. And if it is unable to do it, at least let it stop sowing seeds of disintegration and hatredness . Let them not support violence, oral or physical, and cleanse the minds of people from fear, hatred and suspicion and work in the spirit of sab ka saath sab ka vikaas. Parties may come and go but the country will remain and it must remain strong as a solid mountain ensuring a bright future for all the Indian citizens.
