Mumbai for Marathis…

Note: I have intentionally put the word “Congress (I)” again and again everywhere in this blog. I have done this to make a point to the reader that the Congress that exists today is not the “oldest” party of India they know… surprised!! Yes, the Congress you know today is the party which Indira Gandhi created after breaking away from INC (Indian National Congress) in 1967. As Indira Gandhi was in power, the election commissioner at that time towed her line and recognized it as the “real” INC. Just one more instance of how the most “powerful” family of India has manipulated history to suit their needs. You can read the events of breaking of INC here.

With the recent brouhaha again, created by Rahul Gandhi’s remarks on “Mumbai for Marathi’s” I felt compelled to write. I felt compelled to write about the divisive and communal politics of Congress(I), A party which I label the mother of all communal and divisive politics in India. I know many people will not agree with me per se, but wait till you get over the whole article and the then make up your mind.

First of all, what was the need of raising this issue now at this time and that too hundreds of kilometers away from Mumbai… This very thing shows clearly the shrewd divisive politics of Congress (I). Is rahul forgetting that during MNS led tirade against people from UP and Bihar, it was Congress(I) that was in power, both at the Center and the State. Even when the Congress(I) government issued warnings and notices to state governments of Orissa and Karnataka over attacks on Christians, it failed to so in the case of MNS attacks… Can I ask why? Why these double standards? Oh yeah, I have got answer to that… If you will remember, Maharashtra was on the brink of elections and Congress(I) did not had a very good report card to show to the common man. So it did what it is in really good.. Divide and Rule… It promoted Raj Thackrey by not arresting him or any of his sponsored goons… It did not put any check on the MNS men when they were on rampage in the streets of Mumbai hitting on unarmed peasants. What was the Congress(I) government doing when media channels were present at every MNS rampage!!! Why was not any notice given to the Maharashtra government when the notice was served to the Karnataka government on Christian attacks. Now, Congress(I) calls the Gujarat Government “Maut ke Saudagar” for its inability to stop Gujarat riots, would it create a similar tag line for the Maharashtra Government for its inaction on attacks on North Indians… I have not heard that till now.

Now, after winning elections in Maharashtra (Not due to it good governance, but due to divisive governance), it wants to rake on that divisive planks again when the elections in Bihar are on the horizon. Otherwise, what was the need to raise this issue again when there has been not a whisper of this in neither Mumbai nor Maharashtra for a while. Ok.. Rahul, you want to talk about India, let’s talk about it. Does anyone tell me how many “Hindi Speaking” Indians have been killed in Assam… Isn’t Assam a part of India… Why is not Congress(I) talking about that!! Is it afraid of ULFA, or is it because it wants to hold a dialogue with ULFA, like it wants to talk to every anti-Indian group anywhere. It is ready to talk to separatists in Kashmir while they rant “Hum Pakistani hai, Pakistan Humara hai”, It is getting ready to talk to Pakistan on the eve of SAARC summit just after over a year after the deadly Mumbai attacks on 26/11, while anti India terror groups get ready again to slaughter Indians.Check this.

And why will it not.. Why will it not talk to the Pakistanis when its Prime Minister(Dr Man Mohan Singh) calls a known Kashmiri terrorist (Yasin Malik) “personally” to “request” him to break his fast unto death. There are many cases ongoing against Yasin Malik in Indian courts, one of which is killing of four Air Force Men, at the start of terrorism in Kashmir. Where would you get such an example where “Head of a State” calls a rapist, a butcher, a known anti state actor and a man who has slaughtered “nation’s men in uniform”, personally… This is what Congress(I) is all about.

Recently, Manoj Tiwari, the spokes person of Congress(I), while responding to a debate on well known English news channel said the Kashmiri Pandits were not forced out of their homes by Pak sponsored Islamic terrorists, but by the “hype” of “threat perception” created by the then State Governor Jagmohan. In this Mr. Manoj Tiwari, the spokesperson of Congress(I) openly embraced the theory of Muslim separatists in Kashmir, and put the onus of terror in Kashmir squarely on Mr. Jagmohan, the one man who broke the back of Pak terrorists in Kashmir during its initial days. Next day when one senior Kashmiri Pandit called Manoj Tiwari to tell him about his mistake, Manoj Tiwari slammed the phone with a simple “Fuck Off”.Read This. Search for “CARE FOR A HISTORY TUTORIAL, MR TEWARI?”. Yes, respect India bashers and tell persons, who left there home and sacrificed themselves for the sake of India, to Fuck Off. This is Congress(I). And, who created terror in Kashmir… no prizes for guessing… It was Congress(I). For those we do not know, please read the role of Rajiv Gandhi’s government in rigging the 1987 elections in Kashmir in favor of National Conference, which triggered off the separatists movement in Kashmir.

If you want one more example of hypocrisy by Congress(I), look at the dreaded phase of terrorism in Punjab. First Mrs. Indira Gandhi promoted Sant Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale against Akali Dal and then eliminated him in the notorious operation Blue Star, which put Punjab into turmoil for a decade. Bhindranwale had also actively campaigned for Congress(I) in Punjab. If this is not enough proof of Congress(I)’s double standards, no body has forgot the 1984 anti Sikh riots in Delhi. On the anti Sikh riots after Indira Gandhi’s assassination, Rajiv Gandhi had said “When a big tree falls, the earth shakes”. So why has not Congress(I) branded Rajiv Ganghi as “maut ka saudagar” for openly endorsing the killing of Sikhs.

As I am writing this blog, Congress (I) government has offered talks to Pakistan, which have been taken as sign of weakness at “Kashmir Solidarity Day” in Pakistan occupied Kashmir (POK).Read this. And this, after India has been mightily outplayed by Pakistan at the international forum.Read This. Now go back, be proud of being an Indian and have a nice sleep… thinking that you have a “secular” government at the center and India has become such a “Might Player” in the international arena.

    Well written article. I didn\’t knew many of such facts. Thanks!!!!
    Keep ur spirits high!!!!

  2. Sab kameene hain…

    Not only Congress but all political parties are hypocrites.

    It is in the end the common man is in the problem…

    But I can say…Be cool bath…I can understand your anger towards Congress…

    But I can predict one day Rahul Gandhi will become the PM…On that day god know what the other party people will do…Will they blow the whole India on fire…(Just to show that they are protesting)[size=x-large][/size][size=x-small][/size][size=medium][/size][size=x-large][/size]

    Well written…

    Keep it up mate…

    Ketan

  3. U r bang on target Vivek,
    Ppl chose congress because they were fooled by the manifesto which makes India look like USA on steroids.
    The seed of this progress and growth was surprisingly done by Vajpayee Govt, and cong is simply reaping the fruits. Forget defence and all, these guys couldn\’t even control inflation, despite having the best economist on the team!
    Also no real Maratha dissociates themselves from India. Thousands of Maratha are fighting in J&K, Arunachal and everywhere with other proud Indian soldiers. Even the Air force Chief is a Maratha! So this Mumbai for Marathi is a non-issue.
    There is nothing wrong in secularism but people are sceptical that they should not be forced out from their homes, like Kashmiri Pandits. If we forget them, its our turn next.
    I pray this Pigeons-of-peace wont come back as a barbeque-of-betrayal from Pakistan.

  4. Yes Ketan, I am also sure that Rahul Gandhi is going to become PM of India… If we have got so un-concerning citizens like us who care nothing but for their wallet, anyone can come and rule us. No doubt, the British ruled our country for two centuries.

    a very well written article.its really frustrating to see the indian leadership chickening out everytime when such issues come up.also equally irritating are our celebrities like SRK and some pseudo secularists like Mahesh Bhat , they consider it avante garde to close their eyes to the obnoxious games Pakis are playing.

  6. Sam, I really would have loved to hear Rahul Gandhi say that like Mumbai, Kashmir belongs to all Indians also… remove article 370… At least Indians are not getting killed, raped and thrown out of their homes in Mumbai.

    Words will be short to admire the level of details you have mentioned in such a structured way in ur articel.. so encompassing in whole \”Hats off \” bro.. Point is well delivered..

    Well, if i may, i have a point here to make:
    Agreed that the so called leaders are completely useless..(infact i have many unparlimentary words to term them,,, but lets leave that for sake of readers ๐Ÿ˜‰ ), dont you think they are in power by the democratic process of election….that is by the votes of very own citizens …

    Question is how many of us or people having self opinions abot state (and betterment) are voting…..in other words…how many of these people have rights to challenge or pinpoint abot the government when they themselves didnt vote and decided the fate of the country…Quite rhetorically, you can ask this question to urself dude..

    Personally, (on a non-jocular basis and democratically), i dont have right to talk against the government since i didnt vote till date (infact i dont have a voters card too)…

    Think in this way, when all these people who knw wat form of govertment they want come together and vote, ..is the moment when they have a voice to raise and beat against the ruling govt..because then they can repent themselves for voting that party….

    Practically, am completely with u saaand.. and the govt is really pathetic..but solution (in quite remote way) is for each and every citizen from all walks come together, get a clear idea of the party leaders and decide the fate in hands of capable candidate after serious thoughts..

    You may beg to differ….but..a small thought in this regard may throw some light ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Welldone mate

    Keep posting..

    Vivek, you have written the article very well to portray the double standards of the ruling party. Politics in India has always been dirty and unforgivable. In the end its the common man who gets affected by the stupid ideocracy adopted by the govt.
    Its really surprising to see such a spontaneous growth of love for state, leaving aside love for the country.
    I would blame the government that ruled this country for the last 60 years for nurturing the seeds of such communal feeling. We are now witnessing the side affects of such an abnormal growth. As you said, even I would love to hear Rahul Gandhi say Kashmir is for all Indians.
    This country is now witnessing how the imbalance in technological and modernization of states can cause communal tension.
    During independence, linguistic division of states was seen as the best way to bring the country under one roof. Now, it doesnt seem to be a binding force. People in all state need development and modernization. What we see today, \”A seperate Vidharbha\”, \”seperate Telangana\” and all the cause of such economic disparity. Mumbai has always been a economic powerhouse and land of opportunity. People from all parts of India have come to Mumbai to make what it is today, and I see no reason to justify the \”Mumbai for Marathi\” idea. I blame the govt for bringing such non uniform development within the country.
    Hope we all come together united as a country first and elect the right leaders in future.
