Our Dear Sitaram Yechury ‘dutifully’ writes a column in the ‘Congress Sponsored’ rag, which ‘allegedly’ they call as a newspaper. “The Hindustan Times”!? Which is in fact nothing more than ‘The Congress Times’ or worst ‘The Bash BJP Times’.
Very aptly the ‘Tele Communist’ calls his column ‘Left Hand Drive’ as of course, ‘Left Just Can’t be Right’. I read his columns for the great comic relief and this time too he does not disappoint.
This week the focus of his ire is Taslima and all those who are advocating for her. I can quite understand his ‘frustration’ as his party CPI (Marauders) has been under some ‘severe’ scrutiny from all sides for their ‘confirmed’ role in the mayhem in Nandigram.
Normally, I would have just read it- in loo; smiled, and used the paper for what it is worth…but for the interesting twists and ‘indignation’ in this piece, I thought, why I should not read/share it with you! As the way I read ‘reading between the lines’! So here I am reading with you all, with my usual communal rumblings thrown in.
He calls it “Our Con Artists”, taking a cue; let me call it as…
“Our Con Communists”.
For you to easily identify my rumblings I am using the ‘communal’ ink color, rest the Sita Ji is in black.
So the fun begins…
The hue and cry being raised by the BJP and other RSS tentacles (tentacles! Ok! Mean all those who vote for the BJP! Democratic rule no 1.either you are with us or against us! Typical Communist Style) over the issue of the stay of Bangladeshi writer Taslima Nasreen in India is, indeed, the height of duplicity. Even Narendra Modi, (Chalo, second line and second word, and it is MODI!) who conducted the symphony of bloodshed in Gujarat in 2002, (Secularist will just not let wounds heal) has jumped on to this bandwagon by offering asylum and protection to Taslima in his state. This effort to project themselves as the champions of ‘freedom of expression’ does not even serve as a mask to conceal their true intention of seeking to sharpen communal polarisation through such a stand. (OH! Really! Sure you Sir?) Given the fact that some sections of Muslims (See the use of word ‘Muslims’…could not a section of society would have been better, Mr.Secularist? Communists, after all do not believe in any religion!) have taken offence to Taslima’s writings on Islam and the Prophet Mohammad, the BJP has sprung to her defence. Thus, they are seeking to reinforce their anti-Muslim stance and consequently consolidate the Hindu vote-bank. Nothing else can explain this sudden fondness for Taslima. (Extending the same logic Mr.Tele Communist admits that by making a ‘Pro Muslim ‘stand, they are consolidating their ‘Muslim Vote Bank’ the very same point I emphasized upon in my last post. This say all about the ‘secularism they practice, and yes nothing else explain the packing her (Taslima) off in the middle of night by his Party to the same ‘anti Muslim’ party ruled Rajasthan! HUH!)
The duplicity lies in the fact that the BJP and the saffron brigade continues with its relentless campaign to send ‘Bangladeshis’ back from the metros of Delhi and Mumbai. (And your party and Congress’s relentless efforts to ‘import’ as many Bangladeshi Muslims, cynically for votes alone…with ration cards ready at borders! Come on Mr.Yechury you neither need being a JNUite nor Duffer to understand all this…. Anyway it is not a rocket science to comprehend all this. BTW, Dear Sir, your party had opposed Mr. APJ. for reelection as the President, THE man who really deserved…. you remember? And this humble ‘blogger’ supported him for reelection and no thanks you bestowed us with ‘some one’ nation questioned.) In the process, many a genuine Indian citizen, who happens to be a Muslim (‘genuine’ Indians and only ‘Muslims!’ still secular are they!?) hailing from West Bengal, have been harassed and hounded. Further, further duplicity lies in their rabid intolerance of any artistic expression that they consider offensive to their (Mind the word ‘their’… oh Ho! Their=Hindus and ours =Muslims) religious sentiments. Over the last decade, there have been innumerable instances of brazen attacks on artists of a wide spectrum, the most infamous (really, give an example please Dear Comrade) of them being attacks against Indian painter, M.F. Husain. His house was vandalised, (concede d, the point, yes-vandalized right, I condemn that, but did they riot? Did they riot on streets like your friendly ‘friends’ did last week in Kolkatta or in Hyderabad? Show me one to believe SIR, I have already put one Video showing you the mirror) his paintings that sell in international auctions at phenomenal prices (as a friend of mine often express, OYE HOI! Acha JI! See this “ international auctions at phenomenal prices”) were destroyed, and court proceedings were initiated against him at various places. (Yes Dear Court proceedings… not riots on streets) The net result is that one of India’s illustrious sons is forced to live abroad virtually in exile. (Virtually! Why? He is a fugitive, if not then why does Mr. Sitaram Ji not invite him over and ask to face the courts!) The BJP spokesman in the Lok Sabha says, “Husain is welcome to come back and face charges… We don’t stop him from coming and facing the law.” (So! It is your Government-albeit supported from outside but… l leave that for the good ‘Doctor’ to say, or bring him back, better still gets him deported or arrested, as he is an absconder from law. Why not? Who stops you? If u can stall a deal which is in India’s interest and certainly not in China’s so such a vehement opposition, call and get him tried in court and get him freed! Why Not? After all, law applies to all equally. Mr. Malhotra might have said after reading me J check the time and date line)
and ask him to face what Everyone needs to both face and abide by the law. This is not the contentious issue. The same law of the land must also protect the life and properties of the concerned individual.(Since when Communists become interested in properties and concerned individuals… in the Nandigarm case… the infamous ‘salim’ group!) When these are violated with impunity by the saffron brigade, where is the protection? (But RED brigade GETS IMMUNITY! Right or Left? I reaffirm, ‘ no two wrongs make a right’. Right!)
The concert of noted Pakistani ghazal singer Ghulam Ali was disrupted in Mumbai. (Well could you please tell me why and why Lata was denied to perform in Pakiastan, till date?) artist’allowed in The shooting of Deepa Mehta’s film, Water, was sought to be prevented. Films like Parzania (all ready bared the truth in my earlier post called “Modi, Mody and Parzainia”) on the 2002 Gujarat carnage (Godhara?) or Fanaa are attacked. In fact, some filmmakers needed to take ‘permission’ for their films to be screened. (And none of them approached the competent courts had the case been so! Who is bigger, some Comrade or Courts? Who to believe?) In May 2007, the saffron brigade ransacked the prestigious M.S. University in Vadodara protesting against an in-house (emphatically repudiated, since any thing which is for public can not be in house) painting of a student for hurting their (NO, shall I send u the pic again Mr. Comrade? I do not want to publish that again, as I am more responsible than Communists, but should you want I could. Dare me!) religious sentiments — the same charge that some Muslim organisations have raised against Taslima.(So you sent her packing to a Communal State,Rajasthan,that too in the middle of night, with out informing the State govt. either! Strange! Speaks volumes of your courage) On May 19, 2007, justifying this attack, the BJP said: “Freedom of expression does not mean hurting religious sentiments.” Clearly, the saffron brigade does not accept the saying, ‘What is sauce for the goose is also sauce for the gander’. (Exactly! Did you not vehemently oppose then? And if BJP is opposing now, how does the sauce for the gander is also not sauce for the goose J?)
This list of moral policing being done by the saffron brigade can continue endlessly. (Agree, but riots?) However, on the question of Taslima’s stay in India, the record must be set right. (Sure! Yes.) The question of any foreign national (Sonia to start with!) visiting or staying in India is based on the granting of a visa, which is the sole prerogative of the central government. Once this is done, the centre can well prescribe certain conditions as well as locations in India where the person concerned can stay. Wherever the person stays, it is incumbent upon the concerned state government to provide security, (So u packed her off surreptitiously in the middle of night that too to a communal state. Mr. Marxist?) given the fact that law and order is a state subject under our Constitution. (So we witnessed when the CRPF was kept waiting, till some faithful CPI (Murderers) recaptured the ‘lost’ territory!)
The UPA government’s statement in Parliament on Wednesday has clearly indicated that Taslima would be permitted to stay in India subject, of course, to the usual conditions that she would “eschew political activities in India or any actions which may harm India’s relations with friendly countries.” (It should be applied to those as well who believe in Fatherland-not so friendly neighbor, after all) It is also expected that the guest “will refrain from activities and expressions that may hurt the sentiments of our people. (“Our people “! Muslims alone…read it so) For nearly three years, Taslima has been living in Kolkata and the West Bengal government has been providing her the required protection. (That exactly is my point. Why till NOW! HOW THE THINGS CHANGED POST NANDIGRAM!?)It is, therefore, not merely unjust and unfair to target the West Bengal government on this score but also an outright political attack to score points. (Stop Pleading, Mr.Sita)
Returning to Modi’s defence of Taslima, a report that appeared in the November 28 edition of this paper is both shocking and revealing. (Chalo aab Modi puran shru!)
This list of moral policing being done by the saffron brigade can continue endlessly. However, on the question of Taslima’s stay in India, the record must be set right. The question of any foreign national visiting or staying in India (CPI (Marauders) willing, West Bengal too) is based on the granting of a visa, (Read cadre’s willingness) which is the sole prerogative of the central government. (Indeed ask Singoor or/and Nandigaram residents) Once this is done, (cleaning off all ‘political dissent’) the center (controlled by US, aree US baba mean us CPI (M) not U.S.A…. Idiots… as u r) can well prescribe certain conditions as well as locations in India where the person concerned can stay.(Like ,Oh!, who are you to ask as the comrade say… they will decide where and how and under what conditions…. Right Sir? Lal Sallam) Wherever the person stays, it is incumbent upon the concerned state government to provide security, (like it has been provided in Nandigram… u idiots… believe him NOW) given the fact that law and order is a state subject under our Constitution. (Bhai do understand now, under THEIR constitution, Na!)
The UPA (Unholy Perverse Association of mutually fighting parties- post election) government’s statement in Parliament on Wednesday has clearly indicated that Taslima would be permitted to stay in India subject, of course, to the usual conditions that she would “eschew political activities in India or any actions which may harm India’s relations with friendly countries.” It is also expected that the guest (though West Bengal Govt. differs on that, ‘her’ being the ‘guest’ I mean) “will refrain from activities and expressions that may hurt the sentiments of our (read, Green Brigade) people.” For nearly three years, Taslima has been living in Kolkata and the West Bengal government has been providing her the required protection. It is, therefore, not merely unjust and unfair to target the West Bengal government on this score but also an outright political attack to score points. (What is now left to score! Who will strip a man who is naked or what is left to strip that is naked, already!)
Returning to Modi’s defence of Taslima, a report that appeared in the November 28 edition of this (of course, where else than this paper! “The Congress Times”). paper is both shocking and revealing. Two survivors of the 2002 carnage (post Godhara, not a word for 56 Hindu men, women and children, who did not survive. sic!) have reportedly stated that they will vote for Modi “because I don’t know what Bajrang Dal will do to us if he is voted out”. (Now! What do you call this? If a Muslim (even if he wants to, genuinely) should not vote Modi in, lest he is branded as a ‘coward’ who is overawed by Modi!) This is Abdul Majid, who lost seven family members, including a daughter who was raped and killed and two sons who were burnt alive. The other survivor who echoes this sentiment is Khaliq Noor Mohammad Sheikh. Apart from losing his father and four uncles during Partition, he lost his wife and all five children in 2002. He tells the reporter, “You must have heard of Kausar Bi, the pregnant girl whose baby was ripped out of her. I am her father.” (My heart felt sympathizes with all those who lost their near and dear ones; including Sabarmati Express victims… at least I do not distinguish them as Hindus or Muslims. Period.)
This unfortunately confirms that Machiavelli and his discourses with the Prince suggesting diabolic ways to retain power continue to remain valid even today. One of his dictums was: First demonstrate to the people the worst that you are capable of (Like CPI (M) goons did in Nandigram). Then proceed not to repeat it (Send the CPI (M) cadres in, for recapturing the territory, in uniform, halting the CRPF in their tracks). The people will then heave a sigh of relief (after paying a compensation of Rs. 5000/= to 15000/= as in Nandigram to harvest their own paddy) and come to look upon you (CPI (M) as a benefactor (and yes only after u fly the Hammer and Sickle (well! Symbolic! Isn’t it?) RED FLAG over your burnt and looted Hut/hutments over what ever is left). Machiavelli probably did not know then that he would find in, (in CPI (M)) centuries later, an ardent and sincere disciple (more than) in Modi.
Those who in their overpowering desire to belittle (OH! Really! Why should I kill u when u are hell bent to commit suicide!), if not eliminate (well! Have you not been already?), the present influence of the Left in the country, (Pardon me saying SIR, a lame duck PM is not the country. Period. A country ruled by the UPA may be at your mercy but not this NATION, MIND YOU.) compare Nandigram with Gujarat are not only belittling the tragedy of the 2002 carnage but are, in fact, extending support to Modi and giving a degree of legitimacy to the communal carnage. The debate on Nandigram has taken place in Parliament (though you tried every trick in your book not to, despite that) and will continue for sometime to remain in public discourse. (Well, not because of you but despite of you) We have joined issue (did you really have an option but not to!) and there shall be opportunities to do so in the future as well (sure I look forward to. Why not start answering me first SIR!) Suffice to state here that one cannot afford to allow anti-communist prejudices to lead into positions of support to communal fascism. (But to Communist Stalinism. ergo!)
Those succumbing to such a proclivity must recollect what the German intellectual Pastor Neimoeller had said at the time of Nazi ascendancy:
“First they came for the Jews/Hindus
and I did not speak out — because I was not a Jew. /Hindu
Then they came for the communists/Communalists
and I did not speak out — because I was not a communist. /Communalist
Next they came for the trade unionists/Sanghis
and I did not speak out because I was not a trade unionist. /Sanghi
Then they came for me/Hindus
and there was no one left to speak out for me.”/Hindus
