Before you proceed further, let me warn you that if you get offended by the criticism/troll of your god or hero, leave this post peacefully kid. These are all my personal opinions mixed with a contrast of history.
It was a normal day. I was happy with the news of hearing the detection of Gravitational Waves. I opened my facebook and twitter as usual and I saw the news flash about some JNU students shouting anti national slogans. All the Twitter and Facebook exploded with the hashtag #shutdownjnu . Lots of opinions of people. Mostly raged opinions which had no basis. In the mainstream, two news channels got excited hearing all this, first one was the usual Zee news and second one was the self proclaimed nationalist Arnab Goswami! Both of them just lurked this opportunity to lash out at entire community of JNU. On Social Media there were the hate-mongering troll pages like "The Frustrated Indian" who just used this opportunity in what they do best, propagate hatred! So, they want to shut down the institution because it is run by tax payer's money. Here I will analyse and decode those so called nationalists here.
First of all, those maniacs who said crazy things like "India will be destroyed and all" are still roaming free. Those people are complete losers and have no worth to live for themselves. They take the benefits of the country and bitch about the same which is completely immature to do. I STRONGLY DENOUNCE ANY DESTRUCTIVE SLOGANS/SPEECH AGAINST THE UNION of INDIA BY ANY INDIVIDUAL or PUBLIC REPRESENTATIVE.
Now, let us look into ABVP and AISF. Both the students organizations have been there from decades and had given India a lot of big politicians. Normal tug of political war was there from the beginning and nobody had any problem with that. Now, what did the police do? They raided the hostels of JNU and arrested the president of the JNU student union.
I will contrast the present situation from the history to justify the title of this post. After the first world war, Hitler rose up in power by first masking himself as a democrat. He used to shout slogans about making Germany a "pure nation". He used to criticize the Weimar Republic and unleash his gangsters to defame the republic in the eyes of the public. The public used to say, "Hail Hitler!, Hail Hitler". People were just impressed by Hitler's oratory skills and he rose to fame among the whole of Germany mainly due to his oratory skills. After coming to power he just changed the whole system and converted it into a totalitarian dictatorship. He had a dual faced character right from the beginning but it took too late to get it exposed resulting a mass murder of millions of people.
Today right from the union election of 2014, we can see drastic similarities of the present situation and the pre-second world war era! A brilliant orator is worshipped in the nation as a messiah. He comes to power. Nothing wrong till now. Now, what are the intentions of this government? One can see that Hitler was working with a certain ideology of "pure race","Anti-Semitism" etc. The BJP/RSS ideology is anti-minority right from the beginning. The whole organization was built up on this principle of fringing a majority religion in the nation and thus by simpler calculations get to power. I have no problem with that also. And yeah the people here also shout! "Modi!!, Modi!!."Exactly!
Now, During Hitler's time how did he managed to convert a republic into a dictatorship? The answer is simple. Using the people! The people of the country supported him in that because Germany after first world war was completely broken and when people saw a charismatic oratory person, they saw hope for the betterment of themselves. Very cunningly and gradually over the course of some years he sold the dream of German domination to the masses and people cheered. "Hail Hitler! Hail Hitler!" People thought he had answers to everything. Apparently he set up a 1000 year Reich and could solve all the problems of Germany. What did he used to do with the voices of descent? He used to crush them but in the initial years he used to project the opposite voices as anti-national and people supported him to punish the "anti-nationals". Today, In the world largest democracy the voice of dissent is being suppressed in a similar manner. First they came to power to fill up the crysis that congress left with its miserable rule for 10 years. It all started with exaggerations about the previous regimes and open blatant lies which as a political party they are taught to do so. India has a uni-federal scheme of power that is a federal structure with a strong centre. These people are trying to make it unitary by unleashing their CBIs to some states (whose rulers are also usually corrupt apart from 1 or 2 exceptions), imposing president rule by making silly excuses. These people have a dual faced working style. when they address people belonging to illiterate majorities, they talk about Hindu rashtra, or about one country one religion. But when they address the intellectual class they shift the gear to "development".
These people are very much obsessed with Nehru in particular. Right from day one by using different dirty tricks they are trying to defame him by using old school tricks like "declassifying netaji files" etc. They will not declassify the whole of the files but they will do that in parts so that hatred among people can be spread. It is a universal fact that in our freedom struggle these people had absolutely no role. Their ideals and masters were British apologists and always distanced from the freedom struggle and these people have starting teaching a new brand of nationalism. They came to power to WORK for the people of this country. But they came and they started the old school British policy of divide and rule as they already have done in the past. They have started appointing their puppets to every institutional positions like FTII, censor board etc. They even started disturbing the autonomy of the institutions by imposing their value system to them.
Earlier, before the arrival of Britishers, there used to be no communal riots and British used to incite communal flame using their agents who used to throw cow meat in front of a temple and pork in front of a mosque to make Indians fight with each others. These people have adopted this British ideology of hate whole heartedly and are carrying forward the legacy. Now having said all these which is a public knowledge I will now list out what has happened and how cunningly they have played here in the JNU issue.
On tuesday the group of students in JNU held an event on the campus attended by representatives from most of the political outfits. The event titled "The country without a post office" to stand solidarity with the Kashmiri people for their democratic right of self determination" and among other things to protest "Judicial Killing" of afzal guru who was hanged in 2013 after being convicted in the attack on the parliament in 2001. As per the president of the JNU student union and his speech hours before his arrest, he condemned all those people who shouted anti-national slogans there. He openly challenged the political opponents to have a debate with him on the concept of violence. He never said he is justifying Afzal guru. His question was, why are these Afzal guru type terrorists coming from India??
Many people are saying the students come in the universities to study and not do politics. I want to reply to them by just saying them the sentence he said in his speech. These universities are there to make a critical analysis of "Social Conscience". Does this amount to glorifying terrorists? Is this sedition? They should remember that it is the students politics only because of whom another Nazism in the form of emergency (1975) that India faced was lifted. I firmly believe that Student politics should be encouraged. It is this old brigade that has ruled so many years of this country with their myopic viewpoint of India and has basically degraded the concept of "Politics" not the students.
Now I am asking some very basic questions that they have also raised. Where was the terrorist afzal guru from? Was he from outside India? The question was why are Anti-India emotions developing in INDIA? Isn't it our collective failure? Arnab Goswami was bashing a person in his news-hour for his views on Kashmir. You are using the police machinery against students who have "views" but police is incompetent in controlling crimes etc. Is it any different from the Nazi treatment?
Yes! Those who shouted Anti-India slogans MUST be arrested and prosecuted in the court of LAW. But all you are doing is showing some pictures/videos of MOB without any faces shouting some slogans. Yesterday I uploaded a video on facebook which is released by students of JNU claiming that ABVP students were involved in this actually. Many people started countering me that it does not prove anything. Exactly dear friend! Similarly those videos which is shown by Times now or Zee media group does not prove that The JNU student union was involved in it. Those videos are an opinion similar to this video that I uploaded and not facts. Those videos does not give the male police the RIGHT to raid girl's hostels of the JNU. Some people commented that they were glorifying terrorists and you cannot question judiciary. First of all everyone has a right to question judiciary in a democracy. IT IS NOT A CRIME. The crime will be when you are violating a judicial order. For example if they would have kidnapped Guru and helped him to flee from the country then it will be disrespecting the judiciary and a crime. All these people the terrorists are already DEAD! You are attempting to silence those opinions instead of debating with them and thus bringing back dead people from the grave. Look inside, it is YOU who really is glorifying those terrorists. We are questioning judiciary on the stands on #377. Does that make us seditious? Few days back this is how they treated a peaceful protest of students. They said that the students "provoked" them. Are the police so insensitive that they get provoked by students and resort to behave like goons?
I think this is the plot that the right-wingers executed in JNU.
- Unleash your agents in the event.
- Tell them to shout anti-national slogans.
- Remove your agents afterwards.
- Record the events showing the audio but not their faces.
- Blame it on entire JNU and start trending #ShutdownJNU.
- Put Sedition charges on the president of the student union.
- Pay the media channels to show some rage on news and create sensationalism.
- Make a ministry statement that no anti-national will be spared and get the attention of every patriotic Indian because obviously they will support you at first glance
I have no proof to claim that these steps were followed. Similarly till now NO PRIMAFACY EVIDENCE was shown against those people arrested in public domain on the basis of which the arrests are made. Many people are asking me why I am asking for proofs. Well if it is a democracy then one must ask for proofs otherwise what difference will be there against this and the NAZI treatment to silence opponents. When you are using your para-military to capture a department in a state assembly (ACB of Delhi assembly) in the same country, isnt it similar to Nazism? Have we stooped down to that level that we are slapping sedition charges on students based on the random videos of Mobs?
Now let me reply in the same logic that they have used. Okay BJP people are saying they should be arrested because they are question judicial killing of guru, so they are terrorist sympathiser. Well, what is the view of your alliance partner PDP in Kashmir about the guru hanging? It is the same! Doesn't that make YOU seditious? Wont you become terrorist sympathiser? You are saying JNU looks like a Pakistani university in India. By this logic does your party looks like a Pakistani party in India?
The logic doesn't work for me when people uninstall app in protest of the brand ambassador, or shutting down a university because one person/a group of persons supported the anti-national slogans on India in their personal capacity. We don’t blame an entire ministry if the minister was caught in corruption charges, do we? I have received many comments on facebook telling me that people from "my community" do this and do that. I am NOT a Muslim! I am an atheist! and people from Hindu community brand me a terrorist, Muslim community brand me as kaafir! but I dont generalize entire community based on actions of a few individuals! It’s like every act of an individual leaves a greater collateral damage in the society (or someone wanted to inflict that damage), just because he belonged to a wider social system or was a unit of a class of a larger entity. Many people link this to intolerance debate and even link them with bihar elections. I want to say one thing, I have more than 2000 blog followers, and more than 1500 friends on Facebook. All of them are pretty fine when I post some cute cat pictures but the moment I post something against their ideology, I am hurled with abuses, death threats etc. from the people who were my friends in school, forget random trolls on facebook and twitter which is a routine anyways. I dont care about them but I feel sad that people have become so insensitive in the culture of worshipping something that they stop their capacity of reasoning. Still I dont believe that India as a whole is intolerant because I dont think that these bunch of Sanghis and Junooni Mullas are representatives of the nation. RSS people are no one to distribute the certificate of nationalism to everyone.
Excise Duty was raised three times after the New Year. Dollar rates are at all-time high and still exports have gone down. Sensex plunges down. Yeah, that seems like a regular day.
Have a nice day.
