Living in Cambridge as I do, I have had the misfortune of meeting many ex-alumni of St Stephen’s College, Delhi. Almost without exception they are arrogant, full of themselves and have a jaundiced view of the world ( whether they count themselves as left or right or just plain bigot). (Apologies to Amitav Ghosh for this massive generalisation - but I am sure you would agree Mr Ghosh?)  So I am not in the least bit suprised to find that V K Malhotra of the BJP went to St Stephen’s.

You can see for yourself by reading this interview with Malhotra where he excels himself by conflating terms and issues:

All Muslims are not terrorists but all terrorists are Muslims. Saying that don’t target them (Muslims) does not mean that even terrorists should not be targeted.


Terrorists should get the message that once they are caught, they cannot escape.

We would like to see that everyone in Delhi has an identity card. We will make it mandatory. One lakh Pakistanis and four lakh Bangladeshis are here, who came with visas and did not go back. They have all sort of become citizens here…. Pakistanis and Bangladeshis. All sorts of criminal groups are coming in from Bangladesh. We will implement it right after we come to power, and it is very important on our agenda. We will ask for a very strong terror law in Delhi, like the one in London.
