Don’t puff up your nationalist 56 inches at these images from Assam.
They don’t show you people freely celebrating independence day but reeling under a fiat of a fascist government.
If a nation has to force its citizens to put their life on line just to salute a piece of cloth (and then send pictures to the Supreme Leader) then the nation is seriously diseased.
You should not just be outraged at the flood – but also the religiously coded nature of these images. It is the beards which have made these images go viral.
Don’t celebrate these photos but hang your head in shame.
