This guy found too many ‘Hindu signs’ in Republic Day parade, gets panned

A journalist called Mihir Sharma, who has a long list of controversies to his name [1][2] today looked like adding another feather to his cap after complaining about too many Hindu festival related floats (tableaux) in the Republic Day parade.

His intrigue, which was a nice attempt to hide his bigotry, ended up betraying his bigotry especially with term like “even Goa”. In the world view of Mihir Sharma, Goa should now do away with anything Hindu as it has significant Christian population.

For Sharma, people wearing saffron (Hindus in appearance) are ‘random guys’ in Goa, even though Goa still is a Hindu majority state with them forming 66% of the state’s population, at least on paper.

So not surprisingly people took exception to his comments and replied to in style:

Lt Col Rohit Agarwal (retd) showcased the Hindu communal influence in the Indian constitution to Mihir Sharma:

Another pointed out that the Flypast by fighter jets too was communal:

Some tried to test if Sharma had some allergy against the saffron colour:

Did he never notice our national flag?

Well, Hindus are now below 80% of the Indian population, maybe that’s why Mihir believes that these symbols are disproportionate?

Coming back to “even Goa”, what would have been a better depiction of the state during the R-Day parade? The inquisition?

The secular tolerant dude can’t tolerate two random dudes in saffron:

This accurately summed up the whole incident:
