FOR INDIAN MUSLIMS, MANMOHAN SINGH IS CERTAINLY A ‘WEAK’ PRIME MINISTER

 

 

While LK Advani’s branding of Manmohan Singh as ‘weak’ Prime Minister was cheap device to denigrate the office of Prime Ministership, now that BJP is in a very desperate position; Indian Muslims have already realised that technocrat Manmohan Singh had been merely exploited by Sonia Gandhi as a caretaker regent, till her dynastic plans to plant Rahul Gandhi most undemocratically, taking undue advantage of loop-holes in Indian laws and that Manmohan Singh’s oft repeated assurance to Muslim community that they should have first right to claim redressal as they have been marginalized in share government patronage, as has been so generously showered on other favourites.

 

It is possible that though he had spoken about Muslim’s first right on the nation’s budget, he was shot down by the Congress High Command that is riddled with communalized soft-Hindutva protagonists. Even in Congress, nobody is ready to accept that the decades long Congress government has let down the same Muslims, whose vote bank had loyally supported Congress all along.

 

The key-word is scare. Congress is scared of BJP’s Hindutva propaganda; while the BJP is scared that Muslim appeasement will bring back the Mughal rule.

 

In the event, Manmohan Singh as Prime Minister had no guts to counter the Hindutva communalism and fight an internal war in the same manner or with the same misguided but dogged conviction when struggling to finalize 123 nuclear agreement with US.

 

If he was weak, he would not have travelled such a long distance with the Congress, while forcing even a break in the UPA and the risk of losing his government. Apparently, that strength and that power of conviction were not availed by him, when he was advocating affirmative action for Indian Muslims.

 

He failed to tackle:

 

  1. Sachar Commission implementation for the upliftment of Indian Muslims

 

  1. Babri Masjid cases for early settlement of the dispute and due punishment to the culprits. (Is he waiting for a Muslim to take up the new ritual of throwing the shoe at him and then resorting to chakka jam all over the country?).

 

  1. His Congress government has not lifted a finger on Sri Krishna Commission report in Maharashtra. If he is a real Prime Minister, he should have the gust to do justice to his people, be that from either Sikh community or from any community, whosoever from any part of India.

 

  1. He has done nothing to initiate legislation against hate crimes, so that India can be rid of the curse of communalism and casteism. If he was so endeared of the USA, why not borrow a leaf from US legislation and crackdown heavily on Hate Crime and heavy recompense for the wronged.

 

  1. Gross injustice inherent in his economic policies that impoverish the very chunk of people that were already impoverished. His trickle down policies only heaped misery on the people. Rising unemployment is built-in and grass-root inflation choking people has no interest to him. He cannot fool dishing out statistics that show wholesale price indices and camouflage out inflation that has bloated the family burden for even survival level existence.

 

 

Just as he has rightly stated that L. K. Advani will be known ONLY for demolition of Babri Masjid, Manmohan Singh should be rest assured that he would ONLY be known for paving the way for US and Israel to take over India, in any of the various ways, a nation loses its sovereignty and integrity.

REJOINDER TO SEEMA CHISTI’S INDIAN EXPRESS ARTICLE: IT’S ABOUT TERROR, NOT SACHAR – By Ghulam Muhammed

REJOINDER TO SEEMA CHISTI’S INDIAN EXPRESS ARTICLE: IT’S ABOUT TERROR, NOT SACHAR

Ms. Chisti had been very perceptive in making out the subterranean intent of the West’s double-game of sympathizing with India over Mumbai terror attacks while at the same time picking up the most sensitive sore spot in our nation’s 60-year history: the plight of Indian Muslims, to work over India.

However, Indian observers should not be surprised over West’s strategies in undermining India. They have done it in the past. And both Hindus and Muslims did not realise the enormity of the western colonists’ ‘divide and rule’ tactics. Both, Hindus and Muslims went their separate ways and suffered immensely for their mistake.

It will be pertinent, if I take this point and put it in more descriptive perspective. The fault-line between Hindus and Muslims has been the gift of the British, from early nineteenth century. Later, it was Lala Lajpat Rai, a prominent Hindu activist, who wrote a 11-part article in Tribune, back in 1923. It was the first enunciation of the two-nation theory. Muslim thinkers and social activists too started a movement on the lines of separation of the two communities, each fully stressing its own aspirations and grievances. However, even with the formation of a Muslim League, the Muslim agitation for their rightful share in the governance of their country did not take the menacing shape until Jinnah took over, and that too on the behind the scene support from the British.

In the end, it was the British and their new overlords, the US, that decided that they could not leave India completely and they have to have a part of India under their open or proxy control to take care of their geopolitical interests in this part of globe, where ‘oil wells’ were to help re-usher the reconstruction boom in Europe and Soviet Russia has to be stopped in its souther advances. It was Churchill that expressly advised the visiting Viceroy, Lord Wavell, to keep a part for us. That part to later become ‘Pakistan’. They teamed up with Jinnah, who sold ‘that part’ to Muslim masses as their new Islamic country. The argument put forward that Muslims can never get justice from the Brahmins and Banias. They must have their own land to enjoy their freedom of religion and freedom of economic choices. (Refer to Narendra Singh Sarila’s important book: The untold story of Partition).

A similar situation is clearly visible now at this present juncture. The West is desperate to take over the continent once again for its own global geopolitical ambitions, as a staging ground to usher in the New World Order. It will not rest, till it has achieved its goal. Our empty-headed pragmatists of the kind of Advani, Vajpayee and Manmohan Singh, have yet to realise that there is no free lunch. India will have to pay for all the benevolence showered by the West. The working over Muslim plight in India and Kashmir will be the chosen weapon in the hands of the Axis, to `on one hand gain the sympathy of the Muslims of the subcontinent for their support, and at the other hand mount pressure on India, to hand over its sovereignty bit by bit, at every turn of the screw.

It is, therefore, time for both the communities to recall the incidents of the past and unite. Hindus must realise that there is a limit to the ‘benign neglect’ of Muslim minority in their midst. They must move unabashedly, admit their short-coming and ‘appease’ Muslims. Only then, Indians will have the confidence to face the West, with any degree of resolve. We must not let the West exploit our differences. While Muslims have become accustomed to a discriminated existence in their own land, the change for redressal should come from Hindus, so that we face the enemy unitedly.

There will be many a Hindu, who will say that our real enemy is Muslim and not the West. That will be a very short sighted thinking. They will have to go back to history to grasp the enormity of the changes that the Western axis is demanding of India. Only a united India can face their pressures and their machinations. So I will applaud Seema Chisti to have read between the lines, but ask her to come out with our own considered response to the Western designs on India. With only one caveat: It need not have to be a Left oriented solution, as they are woefully at the fringes of our polity.
