There is a case with anti-reservationists.
There are people whom I would call anti-anti-reservationists. Those who do not support reservations but are not comfortable with the general, shallow kind of arguments being passed around against reservations. I kind of belonged to this group, but with the callousness of government, I do not care any longer. I declare myself to be anti-reservationist. But on this later.
But the people for whom I have the highest degree of contempt are those who write, talk and behave like a pro-reservationist, because they are anti-anti-reservationists. Or let me make it even more straight. Those who are pro-reservationists not because they see any merit in reservation, but just because they find that anti-reservationists are giving shallow arguments. A shame on all such people. Yes – you have a right to be away from anti-reservation movement if you are not comfortable with their arguments. But turning to something you have no reasons to turn to, just because the other side is not articulate enough is dumb and a crime toward the posterity. You are the most callous of the lot, you are the biggest hypocrites, you are the biggest divisive forces in the society. If you have got some guts, go anti-reservationist and raise valid reasons. Give a leadership to those who are lost in the sea of shallow arguments. If you do not see yourself to be in a position to do that, fair enough. Not everybody is in a position to do everything, at any point of time. But then, at least keep quiet. Do not contribute to shifting the balance on a wrong side (as if it already is not on the other side, with the attitude of our powers that be at the center).
I repeat. Shame on such hypocrites.
