- Ninety percent of Indians are "idiots" who can easily be misled by mischievous elements in the name of religion, Press Council of India (PCI) chairperson Justice Markandey Katju claimed on Dec 8. "I say ninety percent of Indians are idiots. You people don't have brains in your heads...It is so easy to take you for a ride, " (
), he said at a seminar here.
He said a communal riot could be incited in Delhi for as meagre an amount as Rs 2000. He said that all somebody has to do is make a mischievous gesture of disrespect to a place of worship and people start fighting each other.
"You mad people will start fighting amongst yourself not realizing that some agent provocateur is behind this, " he said. ().
Katju said that before 1857 there was no communalism in the country but the situation was different now. "Today 80 percent Hindus are communal and 80 percent Muslims are communal. This is the harsh truth, bitter truth that I am telling you. How is it that in 150 years you have gone backwards instead of moving forward because the English kept injecting poison, " Katju said. (
"The policy that emanated from London after the mutiny in 1857 that there is only one way to control this country that is to make Hindus and Muslims fight each other, " he said.
He said then there was a propaganda that Hindi was the language of Hindus and Urdu of Muslims. "Our ancestors also studied Urdu, but it is so easy to fool you. You are idiots so how difficult is it to make an idiot of you, " Katju said.

I know the words are kind of offensive and demeaning. I read this article in India Journal and it made me upset. But do you agree with Katju? Is he right to say these things?
i kind of agree with him..Past was past..India has moved on but on the religious matter ..i dont think so.. I have seen the Mba entrance exam application form and guess what its asks... select your caste!!!
