Terrorist vs Terrorism
as the dust over the euphoria of the outcome of the General
elections of 2009 in India has nearly settled down and the UPA
government led by the oldest political party of India under the
Dr. Manmohan Singh,
who undoubtedly demonstrated his visionary strength, has created
history by not only ensuring to get the confidence of the Indian
electorates for the second term as PM only after
Pandit Jawahar Lal Nehru
in the history of the democratic India but also by putting cold
water on the aspirations of
Mr. Lal Krishan Advani, political yatri since last sixty years and
the leader of Bhartiya Janta Party.
The day of 16 May 2009 was the day of anti-climax for Mr. Lal
Krishan Advani in his political life.
It is but natural to aspire for the highest post in the political
struggle for a person of Mr. L.K Advani’s stature
but what Mr. Advani has ignored is the existence of the pluralistic
character of the Indian nation in his political journey. He became
the ‘lauh prush’ or the ‘iron man’ of his political ideology but
could not become the pillar of strength for the vast majority of
Indians who thoroughly believes in pluralistic character of the
Practically he has ensured the
locking of the doors of the PM’s office,
for his aspirations, nearly 18 years back when he had started his
aggressive anti Muslim
to correct the history as per his understanding and vision, which
culminated with the demolition of the Babri Mosque of Ayodhya in
1992. Mr. Advani even failed to understand the mindset of the
Indian electorates when they rejected his brand of aggressive
hindutva ideology by ensuring the defeat of his party’s candidates
in the five provisional assemblies just after the demolition of one
of the oldest mosque of India.
along with his colleagues in the
had tried to convince Indian masses that the Muslims are of the
pampered community in the country. Since mid nineties, the Muslims
of the country were campaigning for the white paper on the
socio-economic-educational condition of the community as they have
felt the heat of the Sangh’s propaganda of pampering.
Bhartiya Janta Party
under the leadership of
Mr. L.K. Advani
had opposed the announcement of the constitution of
Justice Sacchar Committee,
by the UPA government, to study the conditions of the Muslim
community in India and the only fear in their mind was might be the
exposure of the truth.
When the study was out, the nation was stunned as Sacchar Committee
Report placed the factual backwardness’ of the Muslim community, in
every field of life, before the nation.
For more than 3 decades, Advani’s brand of politics have made
innocent countrymen to ‘believe’ the Sangh’s
propaganda and had created unnecessary hatred, hostility and enmity
against the Muslims and confusion in the country. In one stroke the
Sacchar Committee Report exposed the truth of the pampering
propaganda. Enlightened with the factual position, the countrymen
took notice of the false propaganda seriously.
After the Sacchar Report, when the establishment of the day under
the leadership of Dr. Manmohan Singh decided to correct the
injustices and announced the launching of the inclusive policies for
the empowerment of the backward Muslim community, it was again BJP
under Mr. Advani’s leadership that created a raucous inside and
outside the parliament and strongly opposed the measures with out
understanding the basic mantra of development for all. Mr. Advani’s
colleagues left no stone un-turn to convince the innocent countrymen
that the launching of the inclusive policies for minorities is
communal budgets and communal
for the Muslims in the country. The countrymen responded with
maturity and ignored the aggressive exclusive agenda of Mr. Advani’s
another favorite Muslim bashing issue was that of the breeding of
in the campuses of Islamic Madarsa’s located along the vulnerable
western and northern borders of the country. For more than six years
Mr. Lal Krishan Advani
was the Deputy Prime Minister and Home Minister including that of
Internal Security under
Mr. A. B. Vajpayee
regime. Even as Deputy Prime Minister, Mr. Advani had given public
statements about the dangers of cultivations of Jihadi’s in Islamic
Madarsa’s but had failed to put on record any factual position about
their anti national activities on the table of the Parliament. Mr.
Advani had loudly and rightly promised that NDA government would
bring a white paper on the ‘anti-national’ activities of madarsa’s
before the nation but for three years country waited for that until
the NDA regime became a part of the Indian history. After loosing
power in 2004, breeding of Islamic Jihadism in Madarsa’s, became
ironically once again, favorite topic of Mr. Advani’s political
sermons and the countrymen were aghast to hear that again.
For more than six years,
Mr. Lal Krishan Advani
not only had
maintained criminal silence on
the role of his party leaders in the massacre of the innocent
Muslims in the worst ever communal genocide of Muslims in the recent
history of South Asia
but also supported the continuation of the Narendra Modi as the
Chief Minister of Gujarat. Who can deny that it was Mr. Lal Krishan
Advani’s protégé (a sindhi too), Maya Kodnani who was Social Welfare
and Higher Education Minister in the Gujarat Government till she was
arrested by the Anti Terrorism Squad, after the intervention of the
honorable Supreme Court of India, for her role in abetting and
instigating mobs against the residents of Naroda Gam and Naroda
Patiya in Ahmedabad and massacre of hapless Muslims in Gujarat
disturbances of 2002.
was in the State Cabinet because of the patronage of any other
leader other than Mr. Advani?
The victims of Naroda Gam and Naroda Patiya have boldly and loudly
named Maya Kodnani for her notorious role in the violence against
them but because of his brand of politics, Mr. Advani had always
ignored the crimes of her protégé. How a civilized society can
ignores former PM in waiting, Mr. Advani’s silence on the crimes
against humanity of his colleagues.
Who can deny that the country has suffered a lot and hundreds of
innocents have lost their lives and property because of the foreign
abetted terrorism in India.
recent past, the denial of justice to Gujarat victims has also
breathed the tendencies of violence and terrorism amongst the Muslim
victims of the State, which can not be justified in any manner.
But the nations was not only horrified with the arrest of the
and her colleagues -
Major (Retd.) Ramesh Upadhayaya,
Col. Srikant Prasad Purohit, Abhinav Bharat Secretary Ajay Rahirkar,
Mahant Dayanand Pandey
and others for their role in the bomb blasts in several cities of
Muslim concentration including that of Ajmer, Hyderabad and Malegaon
to name few but also with the communalization and politicalisation
of the arrest by
Mr. Lal Krishan Advani.
He not only raised serious doubts on the integrity against the ATS
but also demanded judicial probe into the allegation made by Sadhvi
Pragyasingh Thakur against the officals of Maharshtra ATS. The day
Mr. Hemant Karkare of Maharashtra ATS died fighting LeT terrorists
the mouth piece of BJP’s alliance partner in state of Maharashtra
wrote editorial against
Mr. Hemant Karkare
and his colleagues.
Mr. Advani had not once
criticized and discouraged those who were attacking the officers of
Maharshtra ATS for un-earthening the terror network of Sadhvi
Pragyasingh Thakur and her colleagues.
The nation with horror had witnessed Mr. Lal Krishan Advani’s double
talks on terror.
The brave Mumbaikars rejected the
Shiv Sena-BJP alliance when they got a chance in the Parliamentary
election thus erecting one more barrier to block Mr. Advani’s march
to the office of the Prime Minister.
The only reason to sensationalise
issue in elections was nothing but to communalise the general voters
against the Muslim community. Mr. Advani forgets that in the
assembly elections of 2008, his attempts had not harvested any
fruits for his party. The voters had once again taken strong
exceptions to his approach towards whole issue and decided to use
their votes against his faulty approach.
The much talked
hate speech of Pilibhit in UP further damaged Mr. Advani’s chances
to move closer to the office of the Prime Minister.
Mr. Advani deliberately defended Varun for nothing but to garner the
Hindutva votes, with the argument that the culprit is denying the
contents of his speech.
What Mr. Advani forget was the lame excuse of Mr. Varun Gandhi
during his clarification before the electronic and print media that
he had visited the place because number of Hindu women have been
sexually molested by Muslims and had tried to restore the confidence
amongst the hindu population of the area. The clarification of Varun
was nothing but a canard as in next two days the Indian Express
published an investigating story puncturing the whole argument of
Varun Gandhi. The women in Pilibhit were molested not by any Muslim
youth but by their own community’s lecherous characters.
The youths of the nation not only
dismissed Varun’s hate speech against Muslims and the Sikhs but also
decided to express their displeasure against Mr. Advani’s approach
while deciding for the next Government.
For more than six months the goons of Sangh Parivar were active in
Khandamal against the hapless Christian tribals in Orissa, thousands
were forced to take refuge in relief camps in their own country,
more than 60 innocent children, women and men were brutally killed
and homes of around 5000 families were burnt by them allegedly under
the patronage of State Ministers who were part of the State
Government. The nation was horrified when BJP under Mr. Advani’s
patronage gave tickets to the culprits for the State Assembly and
for the Parliamentary seat. The voters of Orissa displayed their
wisdom by rejecting most of the BJP’s nominees and his party’s share
of votes and strength in State Assembly and in Parliament came down
One of the major crisis and communal strife, the nation had
witnessed was that of
row in the state of Jammu & Kashmir. The nomination of
Mr. Leela Karan Sharma,
the known face who was leading the agitation, as the BJP’s candidate
for Jammu Parliamentary constituency undoubtedly exposed the forces
behind the strife in the State. Mr. Advani’s gamble of nominating
Mr. Sharma did not worked and the Jammu voters of the state rejected
his party’s choice in the hustings.
During his entire election campaign, Mr Advani was romancing with
non-issues and inventing new theories. What Mr. Advani forget was
that a Sikh can never be a weak when he taunted Dr. Manmohan Singh
as the weak Prime Minister of India.
With his attack on Dr. Manmohan Singh, the country’s modest voters
made up their mind to respond firmly against Mr. Advani’s diatribe
by pushing the button against his party.
