Even though the goals are nefarious, the Bharatiya Janata Party, the current ruling party in India has been successful in their goal of winning the elections by hook or crook. The BJP also has over 300 websites with fake news and false information. The decimated Congress party is way behind on this front. The difference between the two parties is same as between GOP and Democratic party in America. Video and commentary at http://mikeghouseforindia.blogspot.com/2018/03/bjp-and-congress-trolls.html

“In Internet slang, a troll (/troʊl, trɒl/) is a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting quarrels or upsetting people, by posting inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a newsgroup, forum, chat room, or blog) with the intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal, on-topic discussion often for the troll's amusement.” Wikipedia.

For example, the Republican would say, “We will win the war, chase Bin Laden to the far ends of the world and catch him” They display confidence, even though they know they cannot do it, but the frightened public falls for that line. On the other hand, Democrats will not exhibit that confidence; because their reasoning minds hold them from making tall claims, but Obama got Bin Laden without making a big deal, but Democrats would not have made the statement about GOP. Check out every statement made by both sides and study it yourselves. Both are wrong, there should be a good mix of optimism and pragmatism.
BJP will say anything without worrying about logic and reason, whereas, Congress reasons and assumes people know the facts and will not fight back. Modi attacked Manmohan Singh for 4% GDP, the entire Congress party took the shit without challenging. They should have shot back, 4% growth in 2014 was much better than the US, UK, and other nations. If we are tied to international economies, we rise and fall with them.
In love and war, everything works. The BJP is adept at capitalizing the vulnerabilities of Indians. Every day, the average Hindu is brainwashed that Muslims are their enemies, they will come and grab food from their plates, marry off a billion million Hindu women…. They can fool the Indians for maybe one more election cycle, then people will see through them. First, they took it up the Temple issue, and Indians fell for that as if that would give them food, clothe them and provide shelter. The second time around the Indians could not be fooled again. Now they are devising new ways of keeping Indians divided, pitting one Indian against the other.
My suggestion is to reject every asshole who creates ill-will between you and another Indian, he is lying to you, and want to make an ass of you. Instead, listen to the individual leaders from BJP, Congress and other parties who want Indians to come together for common good.
Listen to this video, it is 32 minutes, it is worth listening to figure out how to deal with the negative forces. We need to counter with good trolls who want Indians to get along and care for each other.
I remain independent as it allows me to be critical of the evil men on both sides of the aisle. I am committed to building cohesive societies where no one has to live in apprehension or fear of the other and please to offer pluralistic solutions on issues of the day.
