What do you do if you belong to a political party that never fought for India’s freedom against the British? You will fabricate a new history and a new set of dates so that the importance of August 15 is downplayed. That is precisely what Narendra Modi did when he tried to compare August 5 – the date he laid the foundation for the Sangh parivar’s temple in Ayodhya – with the freedom struggle!
In reality, August 5 will go down in history as a day that celebrates the triumph of vandalism and destruction over renewal and regeneration, crime and illegality over law and justice, fiction and fabrication over reality and truth.
