A) On Atiq-ur-Rehman & AIMPLB:
Before I come to the thrust of my thesis especially on AIMPLB, just because one of your panelist, Mr. Atiq-ur- Rehman said that today is defilement of ‘Tagore’s India, Tagore’s Thoughts.’
So let me quote verbatim ‘Tagore’s Thoughts.’ These are taken from the Original Works of Rabindranath Tagore Volume 24, Page 375, Viswa Bharati, 1982 and I am quoting Rabindranath Tagore, ‘Gurudev’ – “There are two religions on earth which have distinct enmity against all other religions. These two are Christianity and Islam. They are not just satisfied with observing their own religions but are determined to destroy all other religions.”
This is what Tagore said!!
Now let me come to these bigoted, homophobic, misogynist, supremacist organizations like AIMPLB – proud of the fact that the Byzantine Sophia Church was demolished and a Mosque built over it. Look at the irony!!
But, they don’t believe in man-made laws or justice meted out by mortals. They are out to prove Dr. Ambedkar’s words correct and I quote him, “Islam can never allow a true Muslim to adopt India as his motherland and regard a Hindu as his kith and kin.”
So let me remind them today, especially today that their Hindu kith and kin waited half a millennium and even then they, one billion strong left it to five to decide the fate of their demands. They made sure that India wrote her history with a grammar of justice, not anarchy.
At one level MPLB’s tweet made me think of a philosophical conundrum. ‘Should the judge be the product of the society or should a society be the product of the judge?’
As I said, five judges took the call. The alternative was for 1 billion Hindus to take it. But that did not happen. Likewise 5 judges abolished the cruel Triple Talaq. The society would never have allowed it. But a year later there has been an 82% reduction in Triple Talaq. So the society has been reformed by the virtue of it being the product of the judge. Same way decriminalizing abortion, homosexuality and so many taboos that plague our society shackled by religious commandments.
I condemn the razing of the Babri Masjid. It was against the law. An attempt to write India’s history with a grammar of anarchy and not justice. But here is the thing, the MPLB and the Left, that want us to fight historical injustices, that are celebrating the statues being illegally brought down of tyrants like Rhodes, Churchill, Pizarro, Martel and Leopold.
These same guys condemn the razing of Babri masjid as well. Why? Because tyrants who murder Hindus or destroy their temple are not tyrants but heroes. They don’t care about legality or illegality. They only care about hating Hindus, and so I ask them finally, by their logic, won’t they hail a judicial verdict upholding the legal sanctity of a Shiva temple built over the holiest of Islamic shrines despite scientific evidence that latter was demolished.
B) On Pakistan:
1. Pakistan can cry all it wants. But the fact is Mirpur, Muzaffarabad, Gilgit and the entire area is an integral part of India.
2. Know this as well, that it is legally ours. That it wasn’t we who annexed it but rather Pakistan with the help of mercenaries let loose by that scheming Jinnah.
3. Moreover, it is a fact that on February 22nd, 1994, the Indian Parliament unanimously adopted the resolution that Pakistan must vacate the area of the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir which they have occupied through aggression.
4. Keeping this in mind, why should anyone object to Indians wanting to know the climate in a part of India.
5. Besides we broadcast and rightly so the weather report of our wonderful state of Arunachal Pradesh and Tawang even though China considers it as its territory. And so Pakistan should thank their stars that we aren’t broadcasting the weather report of Lahore. But who knows if it continues to be a terror state and meddle in our affairs we just might.
C) On Saba Naqvi:
This kitty party journalist who has only ever studied how to peddle fake news and propaganda rakes the blackboard of journalism every night with her manicured fingernails. I don’t know about Tahir Hussain but she is definitely a history sheeter.
Let me give you a few examples of her “journalism”.
She wanted a referendum on Kashmir and said and I quote “I am not advocating Indian rule in Kashmir.” She peddled fake news and incendiary theories about the Godhra train burning. Peddled the fake Church attack for weeks, saying that Christians were under attack when all those attacks weren’t communal at all but actually burglaries or casual vandalism. She is selective to the point of being insane outraging only on Hindu hate crime while being totally silent on more than 150 hate crimes perpetrated on Hindus by Muslim mobs.
She spread fake news about ABVP Assam unit doing an anti-CAA protest, about Dalit man murdered for entering the temple, about a Muslim driver beaten up and made to chant ‘Jai Shri Ram’. Deep down she hates ‘Kaafirs’, I don’t know which book she reads every morning which makes her hate ‘Kaafirs’ so much. She has been repeatedly called out.
She fails to disclose that she was been appointed by Aam Aadmi Party to a Delhi University College-governing body. She uses rape analogies freely as she did for Bhansali. I can go on and on, suffice it to say that she is a stinging indictment on our education system. She does not want to hear the truth.
