Nationalism portrayed as Patriotism, IRONY?

Nationalism vs Patriotism

Today, If we search for news(newspaper, news channels or in social media), mostly what we get is about Indo Pak war, Hindu Muslim conflicts & boiling hatred between us. Today the most common thought everyone tries to drive through is either you are Nationalist or Anti-national. Nationalism is portrayed in Canvas as Patriotism irony is most of us are accepting both of them as the same thing.

Nationalism vs Patriotism

"The basic rule of Patriotism is when love for your country & your people come first, Nationalism is when the hate for people other than yours come first"

We all are mature enough to understand this, then why so much fuss & rift? Fact: When about country, everyone tries to drive it through emotions. We all want to serve our country in some way & that is why we are very much get fascinated by the term "Patriotism".  This is the advantage which politicians are always looking for either it is JP Moment, Anna Moment, demonetization, Indo-Pak ties all were/are successful because we believe we are serving for the Nation cause, do we? Sometimes yes, sometimes no.
The problem we all have, before supporting such things we never check the actual package but the wrapper & believe whatever it is, I am doing it for Nation cause. While doing so we fall into the trap of being a Nationalist rather that a Patriotic one.

"Patriot is proud of his country for what it does, and the nationalist is proud of his country no matter what it does"

Somehow, whatever I have written above is covering one face of the betrayed audience, some of us are also opportunist people, having our own agendas, nothing to do with nation cause, our own motives & our own greeds always comes first. Hindu-Muslin hatred, Caste reservations, Quota system & much more blah blah blah, do you think all of this has anything to do with nation cause? No.
These are the people who try to use political parties as tools to support their hidden agendas, either in a frame of communist, nationalist or socialist.

"Democracy get killed that very day when we stop questioning our leaders about their work & start praising them for fooling all of us to fulfil our own greed’s"

Hindu-Muslim hatred is serving in such a way that anyone who supports this is considered as patriotic & who oppose this is termed as "anti-national". Politicians are trying to inject this into our veins & I found them very much successful in doing so.
This thing is such poisonous, that if you speak up the truth, it is creating a rift between friends, family & loved ones. Most of the people who echo that mentality are aggressive as well, they try to bully you, troll you, harass you, defame you. Sometimes you even get the thought "yaar sab mil ke yehi bol rahe hain, kahin ye nafrat he to theek nahi hum sab ke liye, fir baat dhyaan aati hai, ye desh ke liye theek nahi hai".

"Nationalism is an infantile diseaseIt is the measles of mankind."

Now even the crimes are seen through spects of Hindu Muslim hatred
Rape/murder/homicide/genocide to anyone needs to be condemned & we all need to echo our voice in support of the victim to get the justice irrespective of its religion. I have seen people advocating the fact that it was done earlier with people of our religion & now it’s our turn to give them back (Hindu or Muslims), they call themselves "Nationalist". They are feeling even proud of doing so. This mentality is sick & deserve mental treatment "kyonki ye aaj nahi ruka to kal meri kaum ke andar mere he log meri he behan betiyon ke sath ye karenge".

"A criminal is a criminal, a rapist is a rapist, a murderer is a murderer, he doesn't see your surname before committing a crime"

Nationalism kills democracy; they kill each & every voice opposing them.

"Ab kyon bol rahe ho, tab kyon nahi bole. Iss ab tab ke beech be kai wajeef sawaal dafn hain".

Nationalism has nothing to do with nation, they are in fact poison for the developing country because they divide & they rule by creating hatred between all of us. We have witnessed Naziwad of Germany, Faasiwad of Italy in past, That was "Rastravad i.e. Nationalism", what happened? Broken dreams, a disgrace to the country, at last, written apology to the whole world for their thinking & wrongdoing.

"Nationalism is a coalition of pythons, which do nothing for their society but whenever get a chance will take even the last bit of free air from the body of every creature of same society they live"

At last, I was in no mood of writing all this, as it is a very controversial topic & many of you might get offended while reading this blog. It might come as a disappointment, as I am taking a calculative risk of losing my audience. For me, a blog is all about speaking real me & there is no point in hiding, what I feel.
