5th August 2019: The death of Nehruvian Secularism and the dawn of a New India

Monumental days such as today have key players who are immortalized forever. A single decision taken by a few extraordinary men translates into a giant leap for an entire nation.

There are moments in history the significance of which mere words cannot capture. Human language has not evolved enough to contain the vocabulary required to adequately describe the essence of their import. The 5th of August, 2019 is one such day.

It will go down in history as the day when the future of India was changed forever. The abolition of Article 370 and consequently, Article 35A, marks a new beginning for our country. Monumental days such as today have key players who are immortalized forever. A single decision taken by a few extraordinary men translates into a giant leap for an entire nation.

The Death of Nehruvian Secularism

In the second week of May, while the Lok Sabha elections were underway, OpIndia.com had made a prediction. We had said that Nehruvian Secularism shall not survive another term of Modi Sarkaar. Of course, we weren’t the first to make that claim. However, it does feel good to be vindicated.

So this is how Nehruvian Secularism dies, amidst chants of Bharat Mata ki Jai and Jai Hind. Nehru’s legacy didn’t die a simple death. The death of his legacy was cheered, celebrated and cherished by every single patriot of this country. And it’s merely the beginning. By the time the Modi-Shah duo is done, India will be completely unrecognizable from the country Nehru envisioned. And like we said before, it will be a good thing.

It has also become evident that Nehruvian Secularism is inherently detrimental to our national interests. The criminalization of Triple Talaq was the first blow that was struck at the heart of it. Within a matter of days, the abolition of the Articles 370 and 35A has destroyed it altogether.

A New India

The abolition of Articles 370 and 35A and the unprecedented developments that preceded it also heralds the dawn of a New India. This New India acts as a sovereign nation, this New India is not afraid to enforce harsh crackdowns on people who seek to threaten its territorial integrity. This New India reveres Gandhi but carries in its heart the revolutionary spirit of Veer Savarkar and Bal Gangadhar Tilak.

This New India is a major player in international politics. This New India is not cowed down by the West. This New India does not compromise its national interests in a deluded pursuit of the moral high ground. This New India has abandoned Nehruvian ideals for the virtues that drove Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj to glory. It’s a fundamental shift in the manner in which India perceives itself, it’s a shift that indicates a definitive change in the ideological conceptions of the political establishment.

India shall no longer be held hostage by a bunch of foreign-backed politicians. India shall no longer shy away from conflict. India does not hunger for war but recognizes that wars waged to uphold Dharma are virtuous. We shall no longer sacrifice our nation and its people to the false song of Secularism. This is not Nehru’s India anymore, this is Veer Savarkar’s India, Shyama Prasad Mookerjee’s India, Sri Aurobindo’s India.

Makers of a New India

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has often talked about a New India. After today’s decision, it almost becomes certain that he will go down as the maker of it. He has shown tremendous courage, colossal grit and enormous dedication in passing this order. The party won 303 seats in his name and the mammoth victory has manifested itself in even mightier consequences.

Union Home Minister Amit Shah is indispensable to Narendra Modi. Through thick and thin, Amit Shah has stood by Narendra Modi’s side and helped craft his gargantuan victories. It’s not for nothing that he is called the Modern Chanakya. Who could have ever imagined that one single friendship would have such an impact on the future of an entire civilization? It’s only fitting then when people shall speak of a New India, Amit Shah’s name will closely follow Narendra Modi himself.

NSA Ajit Doval is another individual who deserves great credit for the abolition of Articles 370 and 35A. It has been fairly obvious that the top two of the BJP work closely in tandem with Doval on all major issues concerning the nation. Doval, himself, has been targeted frequently by the Lutyens Cabal which indicates his importance in the government hierarchy. He has tasted several great successes in his career but surely, the abolition of Articles 370 and 35A is the most important issue he has ever worked. And that will be his greatest achievement.

There are a great many others who have worked behind the scenes to ensure that this momentous occasion comes to pass. And each of them deserves great praise. It’s also a victory for every single nationalist who was fortunate enough to be born in this sacred land of ours. It’s a collective victory of every single citizen of this country.
