Why're you commenting on this clowns threads ? He quotes articles on goddamn AIDWA members on the what it means to be a Lingayat. it's like asking a eunuch on penetration or a *censored* to comment on chastity. The best people to answer such radicals are radicals of another kind - the Sanatan Sanstha. Let those two sets of loons sort it out and as & when the Congress under another self declared atheist Niddheramiah aids the creation of the Lingayat as another religion , be rest assured it'd be challenged in the courts and what's more the reasons why this group is seeking such a status which owes more to having full control over their religious and educational institutions as minority ones enjoy a great deal of autonomy , the act itself will also come under scrutiny if Modi led BJP will be in power then leading to a review of the autonomy such groups enjoy .
Just sit back and watch the fun.
But in the meantime, what about the possibility of Congress breaking BJP's Lingayat votebank with such a move? As you already said yesterday, you think Congress will scrape through in Karnataka, surely this doesn't help the BJP's chances then.
