When new lexicons are invented to malign the soul of a nation by the left-liberal ecosystem, trust that the nation is on the right track. British artist Anish Kapoor upon being provided with a platform by the Guardian, used the opportunity to criticise the Central Vista project to display his rampant Hinduphobia with words like “Hindu Taliban” and “Brahminical Art”.
Renowned for constructing eyesores across the world, British artist Anish Kapoor, as if still hurting from the fact that his incompetent self was not allowed to mess up the Central Vista project, authored an article titled, “Modi’s bulldozing of parliament shows him as the architect of a Hindu Taliban.”
The article which was as bad as some of Kapoor’s latest works like the “Ark of Nova”, claimed that, “Flattening the majestic Mughal-inspired buildings is the latest stage in a hateful, vanity-fuelled campaign to de-Islamify India.” This marks the entry of Kapoor into the eminent and long list of leftists who are Mughal apologists.
Perhaps it was too much for Kapoor’s brain to comprehend that India’s parliament needed a major uplift with not a single seat to spare in the Lok Sabha – something which has been demanded by a number of Congress leaders in the past, especially with a planned expansion of the parliament. In his article, Kapoor marvelled about how the Parliament was built by British architect Edwin Lutyens.
Known for his non-existent sense of aesthetic, Kapoor just couldn’t stop raving about the supposedly Islamic origin of the buildings, “Unsurprisingly, the Islamic origin of these buildings offends the current regime in Delhi. It is why the tyrant Modi and his henchmen are destroying it. As I write, the destruction is underway. It is an abomination that Modi’s hate-filled campaign to de-Islamify India is allowed to continue via the destruction of a world-class monument.” Only the genius of Anish Kapoor can turn a much needed developmental project into a move to de-Islamify India. It is pertinent to note that no building which has been earmarked for demolition is a heritage structure or of Islamic origin.
Expectedly, Kapoor then proceeded to bring in the United Nations as he wrote, “Astonishingly, the UN heritage forum is silent and world heritage bodies have kept their mouths firmly closed. Are they afraid of Modi, or do they not care what happens in India?” Kapoor perhaps has forgotten that this is not an India ruled by the revanchist East India Company and the UN has no locus standi on commenting on India’s internal matters and also because no heritage monument has been demolished.
Kapoor’s limited intellect prevents him from appreciating or celebrating the work of his peers as then stooped to personal attacks against the architect of the Central Vista project – Bimal Patel. “Modi has appointed third-rate Bimal Patel as his architect. Patel will design its replacement much in the way that Albert Speer followed his Führer’s lead, but, of course, Patel does not have an iota of Speer’s talent,” said Hindu-hating Kapoor.
As surprising as the rising of the sun every morning, Kapoor proceeded to compare the Central Vista project to the demolition of the Babri Masjid. In what reveals the extent of editorial standards of the Guardian, the publication allowed Kapoor to lie through his teeth and spread fake news about the Citizenship Amendment Act. Kapoor falsely claimed, “Let us not forget that he has already forcibly taken away Indian citizenship from many millions of Indian Muslims and rendered them stateless – a crime for which he has not been brought to book, even though India is a signatory to the UN declaration of human rights, of which citizenship is a central tenet.”
Perhaps shielding the scores of Islamist terror attacks, Kapoor just couldn’t stop fantasising about the prospect of a Hindu Taliban. The Hindu hating Kapoor wrote, “Modi’s Hindu Taliban needs monuments to itself in order to establish cultural acceptance and domination. Like all fascist-leaning politicians, Modi hopes that by controlling the images at the heart of the nation, he will form a new vision of his India, which places him at the centre alongside Mahatma Gandhi and Vallabhbhai Patel.”
Next on Kapoor’s hit list was the Narendra Modi stadium in Ahmedabad which happens to be the world’s largest cricket stadium. Despite the stadium receiving the rich praise from both the India and England cricketers who faced off at the stadium earlier this year, the Cricket expert and the heir to Don Bradman and Sachin Tendulkar, his highness Anish Kapoor found the stadium to be “unimaginably vulgar.”
Like all articles by the left-liberal ecosystem, Kapoor concluded the article by drawing a similarity between India and erstwhile Nazi Germany. Kapoor wrote, “The destruction of the parliament buildings represents the taking-over of the Indian psyche by a fascist regime. Its ultra-nationalist vision is of Hindu dominion over all Indians at any price, and Modi as its architect will rule India with his right hand raised in salute, palm open, mimicking the Hindu god Vishnu – among others.”
Kapoor’s supreme intellect can be summed up by one of his past statements. In 2019, Kapoor pondered, “If I was a young Muslim, would I feel angry enough to join ISIS? I would at least think about it.”
