Pollution is Not the Real Problem

Last Updated

Politicians are liars.

They can make you believe anything they want. Heck, they can even turn lies into truths.

How?

By repeating them over and over again.

A lie they have been propagating since eternity is that the gravest danger India face is pollution.

But the reality is quite different: pollution is not the issue, not the real one.

Then what is?

Well, think about this:

How many times have you seen politicians talk about the consequences of overpopulation; that India is one of the most populous countries in the world?

You can’t even recall, right?

They have been drilling in your head that the problem is pollution. They warn you of plastic waste, consequences of driving a vehicle, dry leaves, climate change and all that bullshit.

Every year around Diwali, the NGOs, the ‘eminent personalities’ (the gang who advocated a pardon for a terrorist) – all of them shout on top of their voices, “Don’t burn firecrackers, they pollute the air.”

But firecrackers are not the only thing polluting the air. There’s traffic as well. And the traffic situation is so goddam pathetic that you feel like drowning in a sea of vehicles.

And what does the government do?

It issues advisory that you should use public transport and practice car-pooling, but it never talks about the reason – why a large number of cars are being added to the already hopeless traffic every year?

Let me answer that.

It’s because of the increasing population. More people, more cars. More people. More pollution. (See?)

And the horrific numbers not only include your countrymen but intruders as well.

Can you believe there are five crores + illegal Bangladeshi intruders living among you (not to mention the Rohingyas, Afghanis, Nigerians and many other foreign nationals?)

Has India become a Dharamshala?

“A-free-for-all” type of country?

Anybody, from anywhere, at any time, can visit and stay here if they did not have food, employment, or decent living conditions in their countries–illegal Bangladeshis are an obvious threat, and they’re still here.

But what’s the harm in accommodating a few crore Bangladeshis on humanitarian grounds?

Humanitarian grounds?

Alright.

You could have one if you had the resources. But do you?

The resources are limited and getting smaller by the day, mind you.

(And even if you had the resources why would you accommodate people who’re none of your responsibility?)

Why Hindus Are Guilt-Ridden?

We’ve been brain-washed that we must take in any Tom, Dick and Harry. It’s our moral duty.

Is it?

Now, could somebody please enlighten us why all this humanitarian bullshit applies to India only? Why don’t these Bangladeshis go to the countries of their Big Brothers? 

Hindus Also Go to Other Countries, Don’t They?

Of course, they do. But we don’t conspire against the countries that give us livelihood and better living conditions. For us, the country we live in is equal to our motherland–India, if not more. We strive day in and day out to contribute to the land.

Don’t compare us with intruders (they call themselves ‘refugees’) who has only one motive: Destroy the local culture and spread their religion–“the only true religion in the world.” Anybody not following their ideology is a sinner and must be condemned to death.

Is Pollution not a Danger?

Now, let’s talk about pollution.

Am I saying pollution is not a danger?

It is.

But, listen.

It’s the symptom, not the disease. And you cannot cure a disease by treating the symptom, can you?

Pollution is a sign of overpopulation. And if we’re sincere about minimising pollution, then the population must be controlled.

Pretending to control pollution and not talking about the population is like wearing a strong perfume to mask the body odour, instead of taking a bath.

The population in India has crossed the danger mark.

A ruthless policy to curb the growing numbers is already overdue.

It’s time.
