Some quotes from the cabinet-in-waiting

Modi talking to a Muslim journalist: "Your mouths are watering these days at the prospect of creating a Muslim-majority nation in the name of Akhand Bharat. And getting all Muslims together, with the Indian Muslims at their head, to create strife. Isn't this a dream of yours?"

Subramanian Swamy, BJP (and former JP) hate-specialist: "make learning of Sanskrit and singing of Vande Mataram mandatory, and declare India a Hindu Rashtra in which non-Hindus can vote only if they proudly acknowledge that their ancestors were Hindus"

Godman Baba Ramdev: "We want a law that seeks death penalty for corruption, adultery, rape and dowry. The law should be such that the capital punishment is awarded immediately to the guilty and there should not be any scope for mercy petitions."

RSS supremo Mohan Bhagwat: "Military schools run under the aegis of Hindutva institutions are the need of the hour" (congratulating the Bhonsala Military School, linked to recent saffron terror attacks, on its platinum jubilee).

VHP leader Pravin Togadia: "[Maya Kodnani] stood up for her religion... she is the daughter of 100 crore Hindus. We stand with her." (Speaking just after Modi's minister, Maya Kodnani, was convicted for mass murder.)

Legal crusader Dinanath Batra's legal notice to Wendy Doniger: "...YOU NOTICEE concentrate, focus and write on the negative aspects and evil practices prevalent in Hinduism... the approach of YOU NOTICEE has been jaundiced, your approach is that of a woman hungry of sex."
