Shri Sai Deepak Ji, Advocate, Supreme Court & author 'India that is Bharat' discussed his new book 'India, Bharat, & Pakistan' at Shatabdi Sabhagar, Institute of Agriculture Science, B.H.U., on 20 November 2022.
He answered the following questions of the audience after his lecture.
Q.1 Hindus in themselves are very divided, on the lines of caste, sampradaya so to speak. This, in my opinion, is the root issue of the current state of Hinduism. How do u see it and what in your opinion is the solution? Is narrative enough?
Q.2 We will go to the wedding of brother Abdul, but not of an SC/ST person. Don't you think the caste system is weakening Hindu society? Will not maintaining/continuing the caste system result in the dissolution of our society?
Q.3 Many people today fear to say anything in support of Hindu unity and against the Islamist forces, whereas many prominent figures adored by the same, such as Rabindranath Tagore, PV Kane, S Radhakrishnan and several others were able to say confidently in their times, why?
Q.4 The Indian revolutionaries in the freedom struggle are usually shown as socialists by the academia, why?
Q.5 Solutions for growing hostility between north and south India?
Q.6 What is your take on the recent judgment on EWS quota by the Supreme Court of India?
Q.7 Premchand's stories and characters of backward castes are present even in 2022 in our villages. The question is: are abominable practises so strong to have poisoned the Indic culture forever or is it our civilizational/Sanatani failure such that those communities feel excluded?
Q.8 Colonial hangover in the judiciary and in the legal profession- what's the way forward?
Q.9 What's your take on the Aftab-Shraddha incident and the reaction of a judge on it? And how do you see the future of the demographic situation in Nepal?
Q.10 Can Population Control Bill be a reality? Will it be effective in keeping a check on a particular community?
