For standing up to the Leftist mafia that has sunk to new depths to push its agenda. Shouting slogans is one thing, and leading a march in support of the ideals of the country is quite another. For taking up this challenge at great personal risk to himself, and for holding up the cause of the Kashmiri Pandits, Mr. Kher is the Indian of the Year 2015.
Taking a politically incorrect stance is never easy, even if you're on the side of the ruling party. What is correct and what isn't is decided by the deep state - the Deep Congress, in this case - and opposing them in the open is wrought with personal risks. As Swarajya brought out: Modi won't be there for 50 years, but the Deep Congress believes that it will. Who will save the dissenters then? In such a situation, to lead a march against the Deep Congress in their den of Lutyen's Delhi, all in the name of a great nation that has given them everything, deserves the highest accolades.
Anupam Kher, Kashmiri Pandit who still remembers how his people were driven by Islamists from their homeland in the greatest act of ethnic cleansing since Partition, took up that mantle. Of course, he was vilified, and the Deep Congress found every way possible to discredit his #MarchForIndia. But it happened, and the message reached through. He showed the power brokers of yore that their vice-like grip on the narrative can and will be challenged. He led - patriots followed.
For his courage and resilience, Anupam Kher is out Indian of the Year 2015.
