Interesting thought. Puts a question mark on the idea of “seeking blessings.” Ultimately if wishes of Lord Ayyappa have to be “set aside” then this is no more than a profane invasion and pilgrimage is just a ruse for a political act.

Tufail when has religion not been used in Indian politics and I mean right from 1947. One can agree or disagree with its intensity and/or one’s likes and dislikes about the course of such politics...but that’s how it has been directly and indirectly.

Point blank questions to Sajad Lone. He gives straight answers that spell out the way from Kashmir’s toxic politics (and why some parties indulged in it for so long):

Nice typology of authoritarian/illiberal regimes. (India does not find mention given multiple checks and balances that constrain the ruling party/govt. Unless, of course, the smallest infraction is used to twist definitions.)

In a 2014 book—Dynamism, Rivalry, and the Surplus Economy—he did a turn around of sorts and characterised Capitalism as a “surplus economy.” (Somehow the “realization crises economy” seems a better term.)
