Critics are anti-nationals who need to be sent to Pakistan..
//If every critic gets a phone call from a government functionary asking them to back off, or gets targeted by the ruling party’s troll army, many will tone down their criticism. The government will then live in a pleasant make-believe environment, until the harsh truth can no longer be denied.//
//Understanding our history is, obviously, a good thing, but using history to thump our own chest reflects great insecurity and can even be counterproductive. It does nothing for enhancing our current capabilities. We cannot be so insecure that we believe allowing foreign competition will demolish our culture, our ideas, and our firms.//
Suppressing criticism can lead to mistakes in policymaking, says Raghuram Rajan
