Have you heard of that story where three blind men tried to identify an elephant after touching one of its body parts? Obviously, the blind men tried to conclude on the kind of object they are touching the way they wanted to visualize it. Eventually their fit of imagination forced them to believe they are touching one thing or the other but elephant.
I see Sushil Kumar Shinde as one of those modern day blind men who just doesn’t know what he is touching with his hands. He wants to visualize it the way it suits him and comes up with his conclusions; most of the times absurd. His recent jibes at RSS, Sangh Parivar and BJP on the concluding day of Congress Chitan Sivir is one such example where he acted like a seasoned buffoon to pop up the issue which not only is controversial but also highly uncalled for. Shinde as a person can be forgiven for his antiques since he has this habit of parking his feet permanently in his mouth but can he be forgiven as the home minister of the nation? What he is blinded with to conclude the trunk of the elephant as a long and thick rope? Appeasement? Vote Bank? High dose of sycophancy? Or is he a plain and simple idiot?
We as a nation are perpetually in danger of terrorists and terrorism. Thanks to Pakistan and to some extent our ever so great hospitality towards the terrorists, we always have this fear of one or the other terror attack breaking on our city streets. There are eventualities which are beyond our control but keeping ourselves safe and ensuring safety for the citizenry certainly isn’t. For this to happen, the powers that be like Shinde must take a holistic approach in curbing the menace called terrorism. The first step in this holistic approach is to accept the facts and realize the ground realities before coming up with statements that are too flabbergasting for any self-respecting Hindu. When someone like Shinde who unfortunately happens to be the home minister stands up and accuse RSS of running terror camps, it shows the lack of seriousness with him on the matter of terrorism. It could be intentional and politically motivated but aren’t such tantrums aimed at scoring some brownie points against their political rivals has given all the arsenals to the thugs across the border to ridicule our claim of Pakistan’s hand in terror activities across India? That’s precisely what happened when Hafeez Saeed picked up the thread where Shinde left it and we ended up listening a lecture or two on terrorism and our accusation involving Pakistan thereof.
Who ought to be blamed for this unwanted mess? This is not the first time when a sitting home minister quite unnecessarily delivered nonsense about RSS. When Chidambaram was at the helm, he pretty much said the same thing what Shinde told at Jaipur. He was gaged by none other than the Congress party for such utterances and conveniently the party sidelined itself from the views of Chidambaram. When last time the controversy was pacified before it could snowballed into a bigger mess, what made Shinde to kick start it all over again is beyond me.
That said I am glad that Shinde finally attached religion to terrorism. I was certainly sick of listening to ‘terrorism has no religion’ nonsense again and again. Terrorism is always related to religion and only religion, period. In one of my earlier posts I categorically elaborated why we must attach religion to terrorism if we are serious about curtailing it. My simple philosophy was to trace the root cause of the problem before we even think of fixing it. And no doubt the problem of terrorism lies with religion and dare I say, it is because of the teachings of a holy book that we see a lot of animals from a particular religion find it a fancy act to blow their posteriors routinely in the name of their filthy holy teachings. Can’t anyway deny the fact that 90% of the cowards who think killing innocent people for no reason belong to a particular religion? Can anyone deny that there is a so called holy book which promises virgins in heaven if they scarify their lives upholding the motto of terror? So why we are so hypocritical to admit the facts that are lying naked before us? Politics? Politics in the matter of terrorism? Seriously?
But people like Shinde are not only hypocrites to admit the facts but they also prefer to look the other way at the same time. To support his nonsense there are battery of lieutenants with fractured facts. One such lieutenant is our home secretary. While there could be thousands from the other community rotting in our jails for plotting one terror act or the other, this man runs around with 10 names who are alleged to have some kind of links with RSS and accused of creating terror. Noted fact here is that all the 10 names are yet to be convicted of any terror accomplishment but also their links to RSS is farfetched. But facts never excite congress chaps. For them it is their vote bank which stands paramount, even if it means compromising honesty, national security and national pride. Time and again to appease the minority, clowns of the party jump out of their Dhotis and issue statements that sound so incongruous and serpentine. From Digvijay Singh claiming how he personally was informed by none other than Hemant Karkare of an imminent Sangh threat to his life to addressing Osama and Hafeez Saeed with an honorable ‘JI’; they had it all to appease the minorities. Where is the seriousness in tackling terrorism when your general secretary so unceremoniously addresses a thug as Osamaji?
Another thing that I find missing badly with Congress is the sense of logic; even with their self-derived ones as well. For them RSS is the biggest threat our nation might be facing at the present day but the clowns run around cajoling rascals like Asadudin Owasi and prefer to have all the alliance with his party, starting from center to Hyderabad municipality corporation. For them Akbaruddin Owaisi claiming to wipeout Hindus in 15 minutes is an act of secularism while RSS is a communal organization because they fight for the just causes of Hindus. Might sound strange to many but that is how illogical the fagots in Congress are. Their logic of communal, secular, left wing, right wing and many similar nonsense to that effect goes north when dealing with the minorities but surprisingly it goes south the moment RSS or any other Hindu organization is brought into the picture. If you go by the logic of Congress, it is RSS which is thoroughly a communal organization but not Muslim League.BJP’s anger for Shinde’s latest remarks is justified. It is getting into a routine for the Congress people to pick the saffron terror baloney from nowhere and let their brigade of morons to defend it with their lives after that. Though Hindus constitute the majority of our population we have this communal party in power who in the name of secularism are habitually humiliating Hindus and Hindu ethos by their appeasing policies. Not leaving at that they time and again come up with statements to sabotage the image of Hindu oriented organizations. This bloody business of spewing venom in the name of secularism has to stop. And the first step towards that could be to send people like Shinde packing to places they belong with a couple of legal notices slapped right on his face for defaming Hindus without any substantial evidence.
