For those who have been following the debate on reservations, Reality Check needs no introduction. A darling of the anti-reservationists, he has served nothing but disinformation and hatred. Though it has been pointed out several times, he is still considered 'objective' by many. What nonsense! He is just a bigot hiding under a cloak of rationality.
Well, here is somebody who finally decided to put an end to all such debate..
PS. As I read this post again, I realise that I do not do justice to Kufr's post. It is not just a rant or bigot-bashing but a post that tackles the most common misconceptions and misinformation that are spread by people like reality check.

"Look, the days of that chutiya Gandhi are gone, OK?" he says suddenly. "I won't offer my cheek to be hit any more", and here he sticks his right cheek towards me nearly as crudely as if he had grabbed his crotch. "They trouble us so much on the border," he says. "Then Godhra happened. We had to hit back."
I have never been to Gujarat. Not before, not after. But those words are disturbingly familiar. Words that were spoken not by a pan-stained-banian-wearing individual but written as a rejoinder to a thread on a newsgroup in my institute, purpotedly having the most highly educated individuals in the country.

Five years on, there is still no justice in the thousands of cases of violence that took place in Gujarat. Five years later, the government has the temerity to accept that it killed an innocent man in a fake encounter who was purportedly involved in a conspiracy to kill Modi.
Every time you think that India is resurgent and is on the path of progress, remember Gujarat and remember how close to fascism our country is. Remember that Modi still rules over Gujarat and the party he belongs to has the second highest number of seats in the Lok Sabha. And lastly remember this poem.
It has almost been a week since the supreme court made its judgement on the obc reservations. A lot of people have already responded to it. Here are some links -
