Crude posters in Amethi, UP which is Rahul Gandhi’s Lok Sabha constituency came up showing PM Modi in Ravan’s avatar. While a few do worship Ravan, a brahmin for his valor and intellect, he is considered a villan by the vast majority. So naturally given the popular view of Ravan, such posters serve to insult both PM Modi and his lakhs and crores of his followers. Nobody or group has claimed responsibility – but fingers are pointed towards Rahul Gandhi and the Congress party. While most free speech is protected by our constitution, and those behind these posters have clearly got the attention they were seeking, what else was the purpose of such posters? Are you trying to win votes?
