This in response to Justice Katju’s assertion that 90 per cent of Indians are fools. Well, I have no idea how he arrived at the figure of 90 per cent. But what he says is right. Most of us have become tools in the hands of power hungry politicians who incite people in the name of religion. We do not understand their game plan because we put our hearts above our brains when it comes to matters of religion.

I must congratulate Justice Katju on making such a bold statement and for stirring up the conscience of the common man. Instead of taking offence, people must think over it and try to change their mindset toward their so-called religious leaders.
