An open letter to Begum Ayesha Sultana, once known as Sharmila Tagore.  In the article, we question the veracity, timing and motivations of the actress in taking on the `rise of intolerance’ in India.  We point out the studied, stoic silence of the actress and others of the secular club in remaining silent when certain communities are at the receiving end of the intolerance.
