Never mind what anti-CAA and Anti- NRC apologists say today.
Muslim League and its apologists used to say same about Congress politics and anti- colonial struggle
Congress fought half- battle for freedom but is trying to reverse this half- freedom by opposing consolidation of Indian nation- state.
BJP did not participate in anti- colonial struggle for varying reasons, even though other strands of Hindu nationalism gave ideological content to anti- colonial struggle.
But same BJP is completing the unfinished task of anti- colonial struggle — consolidation of nation- state.
If Congress has chosen to betray its own rich legacy of pre-colonial years it is no fault of BJP.
That is why Congress of today is no more Congress but Muslim League and its leaders ideological Jinnahites.
History assigns different roles to same political formations at different times.That is ironical but nevertheless dialectically true.
