Take the Quiz : Find out if you might be a ‘Bad Hindu’

Shashi Tharoor is rumoured to be good at just one thing and that’s expressing himself in English. Well, that and …

And yet, Tharoor finds himself in a soup every other day, issuing apologies and/or clarifications about what he said and what he really meant. I am starting to think that Tharoor is not even that good at English. Where does that leave him?

Well, he will always have …

Anyways, I digress.

While Tharoor’s words might have failed him, his initiative to start certifying “good Hindus” and “bad Hindus” appears to be a high-minded one and I intend to take it further. Finding myself a little short on English prose and its many abstractions, I have devised a brief quiz to try and bring some objectivity to the certification process. Score yourself and find out if you might be a “bad Hindu”.

All done? Awesome! Let’s find out how you did.

100-150: Bad Hindu! You are undoubtedly among the very worst. You are communal, racist, sexist and bigoted, a blot on society. You care neither for the environment nor for oppressed Muslims everywhere. Try spending 6 months in a Muslim majority country of your choice to learn some tolerance and improve your life.

50-100: You have some evil tendencies, but all is not lost. Yet. You should take an intensive course on Shashi Tharoor’s book to learn how to become a good Hindu.

5-50: Good Hindu! You are a gift of God to this earth. And to the Congress Party. Like all human beings, you have some failings, but you are clearly trying to be the very best. You are well and truly on the path to becoming a real Janeudhari Shiv Bhakt.

0: Thank you for playing Rahul ji. It was my honour.
