The instant CPI (M)’s senior politburo member, M. K. Pandhe, came out with his warning to Samajwadi Party against joining the Man Mohan Singh bandwagon, lest they lose their ‘Muslim voters’ in the coming elections, both media and politicians of the pseudo-secular joined forces with the Hindutva parivar to treat the use of the very ‘word’ Muslim as communal, if not high treason.


The very next day both ‘The Times of India’ and ‘The Indian Express’ editorials were seething with anger over the gross indiscretion of Marxist leader to bring in Muslim factor in national discourse. It would appear as if the 150 million Muslims of India have no stake, no voice, no concern with their own country’s most vital interests and the selling of their countries freedom and independence to a bunch of notorious foreign powers, whose designs on weaker nations is too obvious to be so callously ignored, while ill-advised leaders of Sonia Congress are pushing the nation into a future of wars and strife.


It is regrettable that under the force of such adverse communal demonizing of potential Muslim role in Indian politics, some Ulema groups went defensive and declared that ‘we Muslims’ do not have anything to do with the government decision on Indo-US nuclear deal. That is the power of aggressive communal propaganda. However, saner minds started questioning the line of argument, as if being Muslim in India was some crime and to push any line of thinking by Muslims, even with best of interest of their nation at heart is communal and anti-national. Indian Muslims are full citizens of this beloved nation of India and have every right to hold and give their own independent opinion on national affairs, with whatever degree of clout they can muster to freely influence democratic political decision making.


As a matter of fact, Muslims do have a very important role to develop their own line of thinking, in as much as they find that the ‘Hindutva’ line of thinking developed over the time has been markedly tainted with communal and anti-Muslim content. The Hindutva Brahminical adopting of Israel and America, as their preferred partners, has been motivated primarily as a reaction to their animosity to Muslims. The choice of Israel as the new supplier of security and intelligence products to India was primarily made as a reaction to the internal anti-Muslim propaganda unleashed by the communal Hindutva forces. Israel as an enemy of Muslim Arab is the most suitable ally of the Hindutva and Brahminical worldview. There are no other merits needed as long as Israel remains a sworn enemy of the Muslim Arabs. India’s skewed foreign policy, keeping the Arab world at arms lengths at the cost of even India’s most vital economic interests, is directly motivated by ‘hate Muslim’ content of India’s internal politics.


Just this week, the most audacious suicide attack on Indian Embassy in Kabul is proof enough that the foreign affair policy makers are heavily under pressure from the US and its allies, to push India into a very dangerous area of civil war that India cannot hope to come out unscathed. The quagmire of Afghanistan and its border with Pakistan is sure to drag India into a future of constant upheaval. Indian administration cannot fool the people, by giving out all manner of concocted good face on its ‘constructive’ engagement in Afghanistan.


Indian people are not geared for any misadventure of the international kind on its borders, in which the Manmohan Singh Government is dragging it, under US and Israeli prodding. The very Idea of India is against such foreign misadventures and is certainly against the very ethos of Indian society.


In practical terms, India is not ready for another Kandahar like exchange of terrorists with its citizens in war zones of US operations, and sooner or later, most probably sooner than later, Indian government will realize the folly of succumbing to US pressures to increase its exposure in Afghanistan and will be forced by events to withdraw from the war torn area.


Regrettably, the hallmark of Manmohan Singh government is to make private deals that could mortgage India’s long term future, its freedom and independence to foreign imperialist forces whose historical record, immediate past and immediate present, leaves no doubt that India will be eventually mauled very severely by its association with the western warmongers.


Those who have even a rudimentary grasp of world affairs cannot ignore the stark fact that there is a serious fault line between US/Israel/UK with their reluctant NATO partners on the one side and the rest of world that includes Russia, China and India on the other side.


America and Israel’s relentless and unceasing efforts to subjugate rest of nations that happen to populate between the so-called East and West, and make an eventual move against China in particular, will certainly force a fence-sitting India to choose between West and East, through applying means fair and foul, and through carrot and stick strategies.


The present government and even the whole of political class, so deeply mired in political corruption of loot of national wealth, is hardly seized of the natural and most obvious consequences of any teaming up with the US/Israel/UK axis, much less interested in taking the people of India into any confidence.


The abuse of executive powers by both BJP and Sonia Congress to rush head over heels to conclude a strategic partnership with the warmongering imperial forces, is a clear sign that this government will not bother to debate the issues in public forums and seek the express approval of the people of India, to such monumental paradigm shift in independent India’s blind commitment to war games of the US/Israel/UK.


In fact, India is being hijacked by an oligarchy of Brahminical overlords that treat rest of people of India, including Muslims as their vassals.


It is this arrogance of power that had forced the media and various political groups to be incensed at the very mention of a ‘Muslim’ view on India’s dealings with the US.


There certainly seems to be a conspiracy to silence Muslims of India to raise any voice against the rape of their country. Muslims had fought the first wars of independence by shedding blood in all theaters of engagements and it is natural that they will be called upon to fight another war of independence to free the India of the future from the stranglehold of the neo-imperialists.


So those who treat Muslim role as communalizing India’s foreign policies are themselves playing communal games that are blinding them from consequences of sleeping with the enemy that is stalking our national sovereignty and integrity. Muslims should be proud to be part of the alliance that opposes the wholesale subjugation of our nation. Though the Left has its own political reasons to oppose selling of India to foreigners, in as much as they are boldly and courageously exposing the almost dictatorial and herd mentality of the opportunist political groups, they are saviors of the nation.


The move to offer strategic partnership to India is fraught with deception and fraud. India should not trust America, Israel and UK axis, as they are all out to strictly follow the neo-con blueprint of shaping a New World Order, that has no place for India except as a mercenary power base to offer the blood of its Jawans to fight proxy war on behalf of the Axis conspirators.


Some Urdu language commentators had tried to make out that Muslims are only wary of President Bush and not averse to America as a nation. These analysts are oblivious to the ground realities prevailing in the US, where the neo-con American Jews have fully laid down long term US foreign policy parameters and departure of Bush would not change the essence of imperialist nature of America’s relationship with other nations. There may be change of style with the new US administrations, but the content will remain as antagonist and exploitative as the Neo-Con laid out plans for New American Century. Its recommended use of American fire power, in conjunction with its allies will remain unchanged. It will be great folly for the victims to try to search for the some chink in the armor of their tormentors and lay back. Indian people should be made aware of the notorious nature of US and Israel designs on India and it will be the duty of Indian Muslims, that they should speak out, even at the cost of their being branded as communal, as long as their line of thinking saves the nation from a calamitous future.
