Any nationalists in Bollywood?

Question that comes to mind is why this Paki loving actorSRK,  acclaimed as “King Khan” by clueless Indians who historically have been and continue to be butchered by multiple maniacs with the same last name, does not get a strong rebuttal from his counterparts in the actor community? Why do the likes of Bachchan or his ilk or for that matter even the common man not pull up this guy (and teach him a stern lesson) for being blatantly anti-national, playing the Paki card, raking up and reviving a dying issue just in time for the release of his crappy movie? No wonder, it is left to the likes of the Shiva Sena to do what they do and more power to them.

    Nationalism is one of the most pernicious forms of group-think around these days (and has been for the last few centuries). What is it with this overabundance of state-worshipers we seem to have in India? You’d be hard-pressed to find any mainstream (read: justifiable) philosophical basis for treating rational thinking human creatures differently merely on the basis of what geographical area they originated from.

      Nationalism based on nation-states are a powerful western creation of the last 200 years. India has to either conform to this or perish. India has all the necessary ingredients like a age old civilization and common cultural fabric which has lasted thousands of years, to make for a powerful nation state. Unfortunately thus far afrer independence it has either existed as a nation or a state with the ones who have largely been in power namely the Congress party not representative of the Bharatiya nation.
