Nehru, Jinah and partition

Shimla: Senior BJP leader and former External Affairs Minister Jaswant Singh was today expelled from the party for his controversial book in which he had said the founder of Pakistan Mohammad Ali Jinnah was not responsible for Partition.

 

The decision to expel Jaswant Singh who won the LS election recently was taken at the Parliamentary Board of the party which met here during the opening session of the three-day brainstorming session of the top leaders.

 

BJP President Rajnath Singh, who had yesterday issued a statement totally distancing the party from Jaswant Singh's book "Jinnah - India, Partition, Independence", announced the decision to the media here.

"I had issued a statement yesterday that the party fully dissociates itself from the contents of the book. Today I put up the matter before the Parliamentary Board that decided to end his primary membership and expel him from the party", Rajnath Singh said to the media.

 

He said Jaswant Singh, who was asked to stay back in a hotel
and did not attend the meeting, had been conveyed about his expulsion from the primary membership of the party.

 

Earlier, according to some other reports, Jaswant Singh, who arrived here last evening for the Chintan Baithak of the party, kept away from the meeting by changing his hotel citing bad health. He also skipped a dinner hosted by Leader of Opposition L. K Advani.

 

BJP is meeting here to discuss the causes for the party's defeat in 2009 general elections and its strategy for the future.

 

The meeting is also likely to take up the issue of former Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje, who has refused to quit as Leader of Opposition in the State Assembly.

 

Over 25 senior party leaders, including members of the party's parliamentary board and chief ministers Narendra Modi of Gujarat, Raman Singh of Chhattisgarh, Ramesh Pokhriyal of Uttarakhand and B.S. Yeddyurappa of Karnataka, would be participating the three-day meeting.

Who says BJP tasted humiliating defeat? In recent election even Indian media was not defeated who ignored that various trusted BJP allies shifted from NDA to Congress’ lead UPA.

Much more than BJP’s own expectation it touched the tally of 116 deputies on its own. The Congress under the leadership of Dr. Manmohan Singh served as one of the best governance in last few decades with almost negligible charges of corruption.

The much reported ‘Chintan-Manthan’ and internal strife within the ranks and file in BJP seems another ploy shrewdly being relayed to keep aging BJP alive. See how Vedanta Raje Scindia and Rajnath Singh amicably settled down the ‘dispute’?

The newfound love of Jinnah’s secularism after 60 years, first from Advani Ji and now from Jaswant Singh blaming more Pandit Nehru on partition of India, I wonder it is to malign the chances of 4-5th younger dynasty of Nehru.

Indian Muslims have nothing to do to sort out who actually be blamed on unfortunate division of India nor rehabilitating Jinnah’s image will yield any harvest of Muslim’s support for BJP or any other political party.

Whether BJP or Congress either way in power of or in opposition ironically, over a decade, Muslim Scholars and Seminaries has the thrust to denounce ‘Islamic’ terrorism and they are religiously and loudly condemning the terrorism at every podium and forums.

By and large Indian Muslims are as patriotic, loyal, peace loving and law abiding citizenry as any other compatriots from other faiths.

Interesting indeed!

Now that jaswant singh has put this in black n white will the BJP stop demonising the Muslims???

It is perhaps the first time anyone in India has dared to say this in a book...but some years back a rtd prof in UP had told me during a casual conversation and i was surprised when he said it was actually nehru's lust for power, and the British avenging their humiliation at having to leave India, that created pakistan...and the Kashmir problem!
 

Whatever it was Indian muslims have paid (and are still paying) a high price for it and the guilt of Partion that has been inflicted on us ever since has taken its toll...
