Our leaders have run the world, province, state with propaganda and division. In the end, a ruler has to rule. The Britishers were known for their Divide and Rule policy. It resulted in the formation of Pakistan and Hindustan. The two nations have fought numerous wars since then, resulting in casualties on both sides.
We are independent, a democracy. But the divide has existed. It is on every level: north/south, black/white, rich/poor, Hindu/Muslim, male/female. Our independent leaders leave no stone unturned to continue with the legacy of propaganda. Earlier it was newspapers, debates. Social media platform, the mobile phone has amplified it, fact-checking is negligible. Anger, hate, fear, and division are fed routinely.
If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.
