Therefore, while I try to remain apolitical, I will resist – as fiercely as I can – any attempt, overt or covert, to disturb peace, nation’s secular character, its progressive, liberal and scientific strides, for anybody’s political interests. It is both my obligation and privilege.
I notice visible shift in Gujarat’s political campaigning towards the same, old, time-tested and sadly useful Hindu-Muslim binary, a seriously polarizing narrative and schism.
If I fight this, please do not value-judge me beyond my stated objectives, nor suspect my intentions. I have other work to do, social services to deliver. That remains my prime commitment.
