Forget the BJP, Congress, SP, JDU, etc. nonsense for a bit. The absolute rubbish that senior Indian politicians spout from time to time is just god-awful to behold. This time it’s BJP’s Giriraj Singh’s turn to horrify us.
Not only does Singh reduce a person to their skin color, he also reveals his own bias (and probably a larger Indian bias) against dark skin. This is the same politician who advised all those who opposed Modi to go live in Pakistan because there was no place for them in India.
What will happen now? Nothing. This will die down and some other politician will make some other statement which will attack some section of society or show them in a bad light. And there will be an uproar for a few days, then we’ll forget about it. Because demanding that politicians stop behaving like complete asses is too much hard work.
