I picked up a free copy of the week’s edition (Singapore / Malaysia) of Mint Asia from outside Mustafa yesterday. It shows a price tag of S$6 but reading through the rag made me think who will pay for it. Except perhaps the Hindutva brigade in Singapore and Malaysia.
I gave the tabloid a quick scan and what attracted my attention were:
- A piece on the Significance of Hindutva – toeing the BJP line of Hindutva and development being intertwined
- The Inequality Challenge – singing the glory of Prime Minister Narendra Modi in tackling inequality while taking potshots at six decades of neglect
- India prepared for Global Turbulence — praises the BJP’s efforts to strengthen the foundations of the country’s economy
These made me wonder if this was a BJP mouthpiece!
