For India has now become the Muslim Pakistan

The wild jubilation that Indians (Chetan Bhagat, Vir Sanghvi, Tarek Fatah)  have been feeling at the rise of Modi reflects the final consolidation of the Hindu voting block that crosses caste & class on the national level. Pakistan has been voting centre-right governments for years now but there is no joy or jubilation when the Sharifs come to power (maybe their cardinal sin was not overseeing provincial massacres of minorities perhaps)? It is perhaps that the young Indians have now completed the transformation of India into the Hindu Pakistan, strident, aggressive & domineering. For if Modi had happened to be born Muslim what else would he have been other than a Morsi-type fanatic who had butchered minorities? Like the now desceased Ariel Sharon the rule of the modern age is that you can be as far-right as you want (esp if your ppl have a history of being oppressed like Jews & Hindus) so long as you aren't Muslim or Christian.
