原文标题：90% of Indians are 'idiots', Markandey Katju says
NEW DELHI: Ninety per cent of Indians are "idiots" who can easily be misled by mischievous elements in the name of religion, Press Council of India (PCI) chairperson Justice Markandey Katju claimed on Saturday.
"I say ninety per cent of Indians are idiots. You people don't have brains in your heads ... It is so easy to take you for a ride," he said at a seminar.
He said that a communal riot could be incited in Delhi for as meagre an amount as Rs 2000. He said that all somebody has to do is make a mischievous gesture of disrespect to a place of worship and people start fighting each other.
"You mad people will start fighting amongst yourself not realizing that some agent provocateur is behind this," he said.
新德里：印度新闻理事会（PCI）主席卡特朱（Justice Markandey Katju）8日称，90%的印度人是白痴，容易被以宗教为名的一些欺骗因素所误导。
Katju said that before 1857 there was no communalism in the country but the situation was different now.
"Today 80% Hindus are communal and 80% Muslims are communal. This is the harsh truth, bitter truth that I am telling you. How is it that in 150 years you have gone backwards instead of moving forward because the English kept injecting poison," Katju said. "The policy that emanated from London after the mutiny in 1857 that there is only one way to control this country that is to make Hindus and Muslims fight each other," he said.
He said that then there was propaganda that Hindi was the language of Hindus and Urdu of Muslims. "Our ancestors also studied Urdu, but it is so easy to fool you. You are idiots so how difficult is it to make an idiot of you," Katju said.
Katju said that he was saying these harsh things to make Indians, whom he loved to understand the whole game and not remain fools.
He is absolutely correct. Our electorate has absolutely NO sense of right from wrong. People need to slap themselves, wake themselves up and think for just 10 seconds before they cast their vote. Is that really so much to ask for? How the hell did all the bad people end up being our leaders over the past 60 years? because all the good people failed to do anything about it. Its that simple. This nation will continue to go down the gutter if no action is taken in time. PS- People who vote for congress are the biggest fools of this nation.

His statement clearly indicates that he among those 90%. Humility is our culture and tolerance is in our blood that does not mean we hear anything anybody says.

It is great to know that some Indian is speaking the truth. I would go even further to say that 99% Indians (Hindus, Muslims, Christians, Sikhs, Dalits, Dera Scaha Souda etc) are total idiots. It is worse in Pakistan, Nepal, SL and Bangladesh. This part of the subcontinent is blessed with immense stupidity.

非常高兴地获悉某个印度人说了实话。我要更进一步说，99%的印度人（印度教徒、穆斯林、基督徒、锡克教徒、达利特、Dera Scaha Souda等）是十足的白痴。巴基斯坦、尼泊尔、斯里兰卡和孟加拉国更糟糕。印度次大陆真是有福，充斥着傻瓜。
So True......Else why do we have to bear congress for so long in India...

Mr. Markandeya Katju has become insane and needs to be treated by a Psychiatrist. He should be immediately removed from Press Council of India and any other public posts he is holding. May be he has lost his gray matter due to old age or probably it was not there from the beginning.

His words are offensive but his intention seems to be noble. He is pointing to us how NOT to let ourselves be used for religious fanaticism. Intentions matter more than words to me. Anybody can talk sweet but it is what is there in mind that matters. Only well-wishers provide positive criticism.

Well, I agree with him completely. I am a muslim and my wife is a hindu. our friendship goes back to pre-university, however we have not visited each others family/home. Our families/community does not understand that our love/friendship/companionship has nothing to do with our religion. My kids have no religious affiliation and they are free to pick any if they like to when they grow up. More people have died in the name of religion than any other cause in this world.

I strongly disagree with this. May be less than 10 % of the population communal. It does not mean majority are communal. This type of remarks are to be widely condemned.
