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.

Terror India and Indians

It looks very heartening to see Indians – Indians of all religions, castes, age, etc., etc. to come out in such large numbers and register their concern about the attack on the very sovereignty of India and raise their voice against the merciless butchering of the fellow Indians. Indeed very heartening.
But, but, but…. Was the attack on the 26-November-2008 the first terror attack on India!! As far as I know India has been grappling with this menace for the past 25-30 years – more years than the age of most of the members here. So why were we silent for all these years?? Where was the “Indian” in us!! Sleeping?

Where were Indians when Punjab was burning with terrorism for 10 years? Where were Indians when 5 Lakh – Mind it, its FIVE LAKH not a few thousands, when 5 Lakh Kashmiri Pandits were forced to leave their homes, belongings, farms – just about everything they had and kicked out of Kashmir in the winter of 1989 – just because this community could not even dream of not being called INDIANS. The BIGGEST forced mass migration of people in independent India after partition….. These people have never been to their homes again after they left it some 19 years back. They are still called refugees – refugees in their own country, India, for being proud to be Indians.

Does anyone have even count of the army men and police officials killed in Punjab, Kashmir, North-Eastern states, naxal prone areas in all these 25-30 years. Why are they being forced to fight a never ending war when Indians are least interested in being Indians?? When after they get killed in some encounter questions are raised on their presence at a particular place, when we do not even hesitate to disgrace their death. And if they survive, then enquiries are launched into their conduct on a particular day. Human Rights activists like Arundhati Roy do not fail to sit for a ‘dharna” for demanding the enquiry into killing of “people” at Batla House encounter, but alas, she has no remorse for the death of Inspector Mohan Chand Sharma in the same encounter, who got killed by the bullets sprayed by the same “innocent civilians” for whom our Human Rights Activists feel so sad!! The minister of Minority – Mr. Antulay feel suspicious on the presence of three top cops at the same spot in Mumbai Carnage, so are Police officials supposed to get permission of all politicians before taking on terrorists?? Why the hell should we expect any army men and police men to protect “Indians” after all they get is – DISGRACE and JUST DISGRACE, DISGRACE IN LIFE AND DISGRACE IN DEATH, DISGRACE for protecting “Indians”!!!

Just a few months back the booker Prize winner author Arundhati Roy declared from Kashmir “Kashmiris need independence from India”. Damn hell, I am a Kashmiri and I do not need ANY independence from India. There are more than Five Lakh Kashmiri Pandits languishing in camps of Jammu, Delhi, in every part of India waiting to return to Kashmir but only as Indians. They will leave Kashmir but not India. But people like Arundhati cannot see them. What matters here is the majority. Kashmir’s majority Muslims feel that they will be better off with Pakistan or Independent even while the sit comfortably on the grants from Indian Government. (Please do not try to compare Kashmiri Muslims with the rest of Muslims in India, their ideologies and aspirations are different, as different as an Indian is from a Pakistani). I am confused here… When the majority indulges in the killing of minority in Gujarat it is wrong as per the same Arundhati Roy but the opinion changes when the majority in Kashmir indulges in the massacre, rape, arson of the minority there. The majority becomes right when their war cry becomes “Jeevey Jeevey Pakistan, Nanga Bukha Hindustan”.

What happened in Gujarat lasted for a week, the same thing is happening in Kashmir for last 20 years and the end is still not in sight. So should we “reward” the majority in Kashmir for what they did and grant them their “Independence” and punish the minority for strongly feeling that they are Indians!!! Reward the Majority when they yell “Aaye Aaye Lakshar Aaaye”(Watch here the laskhar is coming), referring to the notorious terrorist organization Let(Lakshar-e-Toiba) which is also behind the Mumbai Carnage and the blasts chain which rocked the country very recently. How can we even tolerate people like Arundhati Roy among us while they do not shy from lynching down morally the army, police and people who feel proud to be Indians????? The answer is – it does not matter to Indians what the hell other Indians are made to go through. Ever thought how many Indians have been butchered – yes BUTCHERED and not just “killed” by the terrorists in the last 25-30 years. “Indians” are abducted and butchered – by slicing their heads apart from their bodies, their heads are not cut off in a single stroke, it is sliced – can you even feel that… and can you feel the pain of a mother, a daughter, a son, a wife, a father, a mother… on seeing their beloved one dead, with his head separated from his body?? But while these barbaric things happen to some of the “Indians”, other “Indians” feel happy in watching movies (Ironically Bollywood produces movies which only justify the making of a terrorist but the victim of that terrorist does not matter) . Every year thousands of “Indians” (Army, Police, common people) are crippled – legs severed, hands severed – noses and ears are cut off and eyes gauged out by these terrorists. And all we “Indians” can do is come out on a weekend and protest, and then forget everything. Terrorism is not a just a 62 hour Mumbai Carnage; it is not just Taj and Oberoi. It is about the suffering of “Indians” for more than 25 years now.

Just look at how pathetically the Indian media romances the terror attacks on India. Every terror attack becomes India’s 9/11, as if the Indian media wants 9/11 happen to India. The height of aping America.. India is not America!! America will not loose in 1000 years what India has lost in the last 25 years to terrorism…

9/11 resulted in the finishing of Taliban from Afghanistan. What did Punjab, Kashmir, the blasts in Delhi, Jaipur, Gujarat, Assam, Bangalore and Mumbai resulted in?? We Indians are still just like sitting ducks like we were – always, not knowing where the next blasts will take place, no knowing the date of next massacre.

Today, I feel dying a Dog’s death is more graceful than being called as an Indian. What Indians today need is not just weekend protests but Vendetta, a strong Vendetta against terrorists, vendetta against their supporters and those human rights activists who only feel the pain of the butchers and not that of the butchered. Anything less than Vendetta, anything less than vengeance will lead us no where……
