    Lol I just posted a question almost among the same lines. I’m an Indian, I’m a strong supporter of the current govt. but I don’t go around flagging posts 😂 because that’s not how you showcase your favorite govt.

    One of the theories that I have for why Indians have become over sensitive lately is because:
    1. India was attacked multiple times by terrorists supported, exported and trained by Pakistan. And every single time the govt. just kept quiet in the name of peace. They didn’t realize that peace can’t be a one way street. This govt. finally took a bold step and sent strong message to Pakistan that we won’t tolerate it anymore. So people have taken this to heart because they have been desperately waiting for such day.

    2. Meanwhile like everywhere there are leftist, SJW, liberal whatever you want to call them, that gang exists in India too. And they are trying really hard to change the narrative. They question the attacks, they doubt the intention, they believe what Pakistan PM says more than what their own PM is saying. So that again enraged the “patriots”.

    That said I think no matter what dissent should NOT be discouraged. I would love to see my fellow Indians to answer the questions that people raise and show the real face of Indian SJW/Liberals. Also show how Pakistan is harboring terrorists. Rather than going around and flagging posts only to make yourself look desperate and defensive.

      GSW, you cherry-pick tweets to add weight to your points but bring partial arguments. That's lazy, dishonest debate.

      Who said anything against pandits or supported terrorism? "Go back to Pak" - are you not capable of debating that you get into ad hominem? Stick to the discussion or say let's agree to disagree.

      I put my points and you ask me to work for you lazy ass and dig for your narrative, not happening son.

      You are supporting pak under the narrative of all paki are not bad. You don’t know me so you don’t know what I’m capable of ...

      Next time bring your own arguments in a debate and you wont be called out for being a dumb lazy person.

      Then address the points I brought after you checked in for a quick comment. Read above.

      "You don't know what l'm capable of" sounds like a what a "well-connected" person from the subcontinent would say. Why would you say that?

      Kashmiri’s can go against India - not new hence I said bring back the kashi it pandits who were forced out. That religion is such that even a few good cant do much, pak is helping and the propaganda is working to show India as evil.

      No one wants war but the threat and strike back was needed, is needed and will be needed. Cant sit on side and keep getting hurt.

      I’ve said above or some other thread that if Modi takes credit and wins election its cool.

      Journalism - it doesn’t exist so it is what it is. Its Just selling sensation. All view points are normal but they aren’t new.

      Regarding “you don’t know who I am” you are reading too much. The intent is you just don’t know who I am so why comment for just commenting. Stick to the topic and continue defending what your viewpoint is, I don’t get into those south Asian connections etc.

      So, the gist is that no one wants war and everyone in India wants normal Kashmir back. I agree. There's no debate there. But every citizen must be careful of blindly supporting any action because it has popular support. Who would deny supporting troops and fighting terrorism? But that should not mean never question the how and what of the decisions taken in a democracy.

      “Who would deny supporting troops and fighting terrorism? But that should not mean never question the how and what of the decisions taken in a democracy.”

      Lets start with you, rahul gandhi aka pappu, Kejriwal, mamta ghetto communist Banerjee, pakistani army and ISI including Imran Khan who had a long speech about how kashmiri are being killed (last I read is they throw stones on army and army struggles as they cant just fire back and kill - in USA cops regularly shoots down citizens who don’t abide)

      You can question all you want but be mindful of time and place. India is divided politically in this time period. How is that different to how it was when British entered India to divide and conquer which resulted in 200 years of foreign rule and abuse?

      Pakistan info minister @fawadchaudhry tells me: India is creating war hysteria because of elections; my simple response: India didn’t create Pulwama, Pak based Jaish did, no? His response: we want proof; mine: give you proof, you live in denial.. India Pak is a zero sum q and a!

      Are the above claims plausible? Claims need to be backed up. If not possible due to security concerns, why make the claim? Is India now using Pakistan's metrics? Some may be okay with that. Others don't become traitors for asking.

      Which claim you refer to? who made it?

      Modi didn’t claim anything but that he authorised non military pre-emptive attack on terror training camp.

      What has India come down to? Any specific instead of generalizations?

      Don't rely on Republic, Times Now, Zee News and other such propaganda spewing channels. You will know what I am talking about.

      Looks like you are relying on the SJW/liberal journalists of India who love to push Pak narrative. They will go to any lengths just to hate Modi, even if that costs shaming your own country on international platforms.

      Tell me the top 3 journalists you follow I’ll try and learn what you are talking about.

      Ok you just admitted that you follow these propaganda channels who spew venom and divide the people all day. No point in debating with brainwashed people who have lost the basic ability to think rationally and question.

      Yes no point in negotiating with Pakistan. That’s a brainwashed country which produces terrorist of any all age and send them to India Iran Afghanistan and even U.S.A. They have no basic ability to be rational and think about “development”.

    Because Indians have some serious insecurities about their country and culture.

    here is how a British student was trolled for posting online that he completed an IIT Physics paper in less than the allotted time.

    https://www.indiatoday.in/technology/news/story/british-student-at-oxford-gets-iit-jee-100-per-cent-right-angry-indians-abuse-him-and-his-mom-1024163-2017-07-13

    Not to mention how many Indians are so proud of the culture which is very primitive—still obsessed with race and lineage like the US was in 1950s.

    Such Indians who somehow think flagging posts is equivalent to fighting for the country give the rest of us a bad name! I wish there was a separate app for blind Indians.

      People are insecure because of being bashed continuously for their beliefs and identity. They are constantly told they are good for nothing until Britishers came along. They are told their history is a myth and their beliefs are outdated. They are told defending themselves is seeking retribution and becoming intolerant.

      Unfortunately for the leftists, they took this narrative too far without trying to understand the what they were denigrating.

      Well, several aspects of Indian culture is very superficial and materialistic—marriages are more by ethnicity and financial status than personality. So nothing wrong in pointing it out.
      And sure, conservatives in every culture feel they are targeted by liberals—not good enough a reason to be so insecure. Even worse, we won’t even admit we are insecure!!

      Americans are bashed continually by pretty much everyone in the world yet somehow we're pretty secure.

      Guess some countries just believe in freedom and some don't.

      Don't spew gibberish here if you want a serious debate. You are propagating blind opinions just like your leftist akas. Perhaps people in your surroundings married for money and financial status.

      I'm not a leftist. Most right wingers are pro free speech and very much against censorship.

      @xvi23e: incorrect comparison. A few laughs and jokes on American culture doesn't compare to centuries of murder, destruction and denigration of local traditions.

      ^ I commented on ex-fb when I called him a leftist.

      Agreed. It's hard to put right wingers into a bucket. Leftists, however, are always anti-establishment. They are always looking to destroy an established institution, regardless of whether it's works or not.
