BJP poses threat to democracy

The TIME magazine brought out a very relevant cover story at a right time (Modi, India's divider-in-chief, THI, May 11). A curse seems to be haunting Indian Prime Ministers except Late Jawaharlal Nehru, Late Lal Bahadur Shastri and Late AB Vajpayee.
All the others entered PMO through Hall of Fame, exited through Hall of Shame. Some controversy - Khalistan, Bofors, onions, 2G, coal, fanatics etc - defamed their tenure and left nothing for them to celebrate.
BJP leader Sadhvi Pragya's curse on a duty bound police officer, Hemanth Karkare, curse on electorate and Patanjali warning 'those who question surgical strikes have to migrate to other countries" and the like leave a simple, normal and not so well- educated citizen wonder whether this country has a President, Prime Minister and a working Cabinet of Ministers.
Never in the past the society faced this kind of uncertain, fear-ridden and hate-filled environment. True, India's ruling party poses a threat to democracy.
