Ram Janam Bhumi (RJB) Verdict:  Celebration of ‘Triumph of Santana Hindu Dharma’.  Part I

Jai Shri Ram

Jai Shri Ram

Jai Shri Ram.

It has now been more than 10 days since the Lucknow bench of Allahabad high court pronounced its long overdue verdict on Ram Janam Bhumi / disputed structure dispute. As had been busy with work could not share ‘Jubilation’ with you all here – though on Tweet did share and congratulate all.

By now, since the verdict thousands of articles have been written by almost every kind of expert we have in this country of ours. Broadly speaking three aspects of verdict has been debated/argued/commented upon. 1. Legal 2. Political and 3. Secular.

Very much like:

“Ja Ke Man Mein Bhavana Jaise ; Prabu Moorat Tin Dekhi Taise”.

As for Legal and Political aspect of this judgment is concerned: it is more or less uniformly hailed; but by ‘Secular Jehadis’.  They are a crass class of their own and I am not going to waste my energies on them – at least not in this post which I have decided to dedicate to ‘Triumph of my Faith in Santana Hindu Dharma’.

I know my favorite Barkha Didi would be mighty angry with me for celebrating ‘Triumph of My Faith in Sanatan Hindu Dharma’ as she has been ‘assiduously’ asking us to refrain from. But then Barkha Didi had always been angry with me– so damn I care if this post makes her angrier.

As many of my readers know that you’re truly has unshakable faith and confidence in Ram and Sanatan Hindu Dharama and have never ever doubted it even for a sec. NOT even when the Honorable HC had not delivered the verdict yet and the whole Nation was anxiously and nervously waiting for the judgment. I had not even an iota of doubt and knew that ultimately ‘Truth will Triumph’ and so it did.

Lest I am accused of being ‘boosting’ post verdict or as people say ‘everyone is wiser on hindsight’ let me take u back to the journey of my faith and some prophecies made en route prior to judgment. Lest you call me arrogant, pompous let me assure you I am neither. My only intention is to chronicle my tweets for you which demonstrate my ‘Faith and Believe’ in the Santana Hindu Dharma and Lord Shri Ram… as millions of Hindus all over the World too have.

During those three days of September (28th,29th and 30th ) 2010. Not only Hindus but possibly the entire World was anxious and nervous about the Verdict and possible fallout of that, so was I. Indeed had ‘faith and belief’ in Lord Ram but was equally apprehensive about the ‘Secular Mischief’ too.

Rearranging Tweets for readers to make a coherent read and get to make sense of… each Tweet  can be verfifed by date, timeline and reference. All links are posted.

Date: September 28th,2010

Ref: SC rejected plea on deferment of pronouncement of verdict by Lucknow bench of HC.

This evening had been relieved somewhat since SC had rejected the plea of ‘Status Quoits’ and asked the HC to pronounce judgment.

My affirmation of faith in Lord Ram and commitment to abide by verdict.

Re: All type of speculation is on, nervousness is palpable in Media, Blogs, Tweets everywhere…

My good Friend Sandeep rightly says and I agree…

Speculation is on,  MSM knew it was 2:1 and in favor of Muslims but my judgment was in favor of Ram… see this.

The prevailing nervousness in Media and CON party indicate they have some info certainly that verdict is in favor of Hindus. Wednesday, September 29, 2010 6:50:01 PM via TweetDeck

Once again forewarned about MSM should verdict is in favor of lord Ram.

Once again I request all here to keep a watch on MSM tomorrow. I have an uneasy feeling ‘they’ might stoke fores should Verdict favors Ram. Wednesday, September 29, 2010 7:12:00 PM via TweetDeck

Since has been keeping a focused eye on ‘Sec-Soc’ Media so do make some prophecies.

Post verdict i am more scarred of Media Maharathis than either Hindus or Muslims. MSM can manufacture ‘grievances’ even if none exists. Wednesday, September 29, 2010 11:44:09 AM via TweetDeck

Morning by now all 24X7 Nuisance Channels were busy preaching Gyan on how everyone should respect court verdict –  MSM by now believed verdict was going to be in favor of Muslims so everyone was so ‘self righteous’ and grinning .

Just about every TV channel is preaching calm as if the Nation would ho up in flames the moment verdict is announced! WTF? Thursday, September 30, 2010 11:13:45 AM via TweetDeck

But I am not agreeing to MSM I reiterate that verdict will be in favor of Lord Ram. My Tweet

BTW MSM’s overdrive to preach Calm reenforces my assumption that Verdict is going to b in favor of Lord Ram. #Jai Shri Ram. Thursday, September 30, 2010 11:20:48 AM via TweetDeck

I am confident but nervous too. I tweet

My estimate is: Verdict will b know to us all by around 5 PM as media ‘rightfully’ is not allowed inside HC Premises. AJM or some will brief Thursday, September 30, 2010 2:01:59 PM via TweetDeck

I would b a LIER if I say I m not Nervous, I M it is a test case for if at all “Satyameva Jayete” or not. See U all here at 4 PM. Thursday, September 30, 2010 2:04:06 PM via TweetDeck

I Log off and go to my Peer’s place. As we watch verdict being reported on TV we get things confirmed from MUCH MUCH more reliable sources than these 24X7 Nuisance Channels.

My ‘Faith and Believe’ in Lord Shri Ram is vindicated and I am Jubilant. It is ‘Triump of my Faith in Sanatan Hindu Dharma’. Jai Shri Ram. I tweet.

Sabhi Ram Bhaktoon Ko Hardik Badahi. I knew it and said all along that RAM will win and he did. #Jai Shri Ram. Thursday, September 30, 2010 5:34:13 PM via TweetDeck

By now ‘Secular Breast beating’ has started on 24X7 Nuisance Channels. All Usual Suspects are wailing in ‘chorus’.

I ask them…

For Ram’s sake will MSM stop refering it as ‘Babri Masjid’? Please. Dispute is settled by Judiciary that It was and Is ‘Ram JanamSthan’. Thursday, September 30, 2010 5:56:57 PM via TweetDeck

Above is just to put things on record for posterity to judge. In second part will dwell on my understanding of the verdict and the logical conclusion it should reach to. I am midway of finishing that post shall post that soon.

Ram willing we shall see in our own life time ‘The Grand Ram Temple’ – befitting the Lord Ram- at the place which he blessed by taking birth on.

Jai Shri Ram.

Shaheed Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan 7th, Bihar Regiment, Indian Army.

Even before the tears of Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan’s mother could dry up, Congress general secretary and heir apparent Rahul Gandhi who hold License to Rule went partying with his pals at a farmhouse on Delhi’s outskirts.

Rahul in party mood soon after Mumbai

Mail Today Bureau

New Delhi, December 1, 2008

 

License to Govern

License to Govern

 

The Prince partied hard, till 5 in the morning, on Sunday at the ‘sangeet’ for the forthcoming wedding of Samir Sharma, his childhood friend. They were at a sprawling farmhouse at Radhey Mohan Chowk, the haven of people who lead charmed lives beyond Chhatarpur.

Just a day earlier, his sister Priyanka Vadra had caused a flutter by saying the late Indira Gandhi would have “made us very proud” by the way she would have reacted to the Mumbai terror strikes. Mumbai appeared to be far from her brother’s mind as he boogied at the farmhouse with Samir Sharma, US-based furniture designer son of Captain Satish Sharma, the late Rajiv Gandhi’s flying partner who nursed the First Family’s pocketborough, Rae Bareli, till Sonia Gandhi chose to contest from there in 2004.

The Prince seemed to be completely out of sync with the mood of the nation post-26/11. Since Wednesday night, officials have been cancelling parties they were meant to host and even restaurants called off special events.

Saturday night’s ‘sangeet’ was a lavish affair. It was hosted by Leena Musafir, sister of the woman with whom Samir is getting married, and her husband Inder. The party was attended by over 800 guests, including regulars at Page 3 dos. “When everyone is cancelling parties or just keeping them low-key, Rahul Gandhi had no business to be celebrating. His action makes us lose faith in future leaders,” said Ajay Bahl, a leading corporate lawyer who was trapped in the thick of the action on 26/11 at The Oberoi, Mumbai, but managed to escape with the help of the hotel staff.

The Gandhis, including Sonia Gandhi’s mother Paola Maino, were present in strength at the 2004 wedding of Samir’s sister, Sarika, who is married to actorturned- TV producer Rahul Bhatt. Sarika and Rahul now manage a television production house.

The two families may be very close — Captain Sharma and his wife, Sterre, were present throughout the very private wedding of Priyanka Gandhi and Robert Vadra — but the circumstances now are very different.

As a guest at the ‘sangeet’ remarked on the condition of anonymity, “We were all partying, but none of us is a public person. Rahul Gandhi, however, is. He must be more responsible in his social appearances.

Shock Proof PM

Shock Proof PM

 

 

A week is a long time in politics: We Know. Terror is here to stay: We know that as well. Terror has no religion and affects all, and bullets and bombs do not discriminate any on any basis: We know that Sir.

These days the ‘Main Stream Media’ has added another cliché to their already rich vocabulary and that is: DO NOT POLITICISE TERROR. This is being used to browbeat the opposition and sweep the utter failure of these ‘secular snake charmers’ at almost all fronts – under the carpet.

Barabar Indian has rightly pointed out 

One can not help wondering after watching the chaotic, erratic, cacophonic coverage of some of our secular media that perhaps the dynastic factor is leaving out some of the able reporters on the street” 

An equally well written and apt post here has exposed this as “Manmohan Singh’s politics of politicisation” and I agree with this blogger that  

Cynics might wonder how you can not politicize something when the person talking about it is the Prime Minister, the highest constitutional authority in town (barring the titular President of course)–a political post. When the PM says something, it is by default politicized.

The Political Midgets like Prime Minion need a battery of these Sec Soc terror apologists masquerading as Journalists to keep the opposition under check. Every issue is sought to be ‘obfuscated’ by the Prime Minion and his gang by mouthing this platitudes like: DO NOT POLITICISE TERROR.

WTF, if the issues like ‘terror’ which has claimed so many Indians and keep revisiting us every where and any where NEED NOT BE POLITICISED then what is to be politicized? What color Prime Minion wear under his pants? That too ‘if at all’ he wears one? After all his ASS is well protected, it is people like  you and me – AAM ADAMI – whose ASS is blown UP every time any city is Bombed!

As for the ‘Shock’ this Prime Minion expresses each and every time, here read Kanchan Gupta.

‘Shocked’ PM forgets his terrible record

Kanchan Gupta

The Congress believes, yes it really does, that its leaders alone have the right to ‘politicise’ national security while others should treat it as a ‘national issue’ above partisan politics. So, the Congress has been prompt in berating the BJP for suggesting that the pusillanimous UPA Government is to blame for the repeated terrorist strikes and the attendant death, destruction and devastation across the country. The 60-hour siege of Mumbai by fidayeen is the latest instance of India suffering yet another grievous blow at the hands of jihadis for whom slaughtering innocent people is the highest tribute to their faith. But after reprimanding the BJP for criticising the Government and thus ‘politicising’ terrorism, the Congress has had no compunctions about ‘politicising’ the grief and misery inflicted by mass murderers. On Saturday, the Congress issued a full-page advertisement in its favourite newspaper, listing the various terrorist strikes during the NDA years, casually mentioning the fidayeen attacks in Mumbai, saluting the security personnel killed in these incidents, and then preachily declaring that terrorism is a “national issue, not a political game”. The purpose was to influence people in Delhi hours before they stepped out of their homes to cast their votes in Saturday’s Assembly election.

The advertisement raises two issues, both related to political morality and ethics, which are alien to the Congress and its amoral and unethical leaders. First, according to this advertisement, there have been no terrorist attacks in India between the audacious strike on the Red Fort on December 22, 2000, and the November 26, 2008 assault on Mumbai. This, as every Indian knows, is a blatant lie. I have before me a list of terrorist attacks ever since the present impotent regime headed by an effete Prime Minister took charge of this country’s affairs after a scrambled election result helped the Congress to regain power at the Centre in the summer of 2004. The first attack was on August 16, 2004. The latest was on November 26, 2008. In between we have had terrorists visiting Delhi twice, raiding the Ram Mandir at Ayodhya, attacking Sankat Mochan temple in Varanasi, blowing up commuter trains in Mumbai, killing people at an amphitheatre in Hyderabad, blowing up bogies of the Samjhauta Express, and setting off bombs in Jaipur, Ahmedabad and Assam. According to the propagandists of the Congress, none of this has happened!

The second issue raised by Saturday’s advertisement is about the Congress saluting the security personnel who have laid down their lives while fighting terrorists and protecting the nation. If any value is to be attached to the advertisement, we must conclude that the Congress is reluctant to salute Inspector Mohan Chand Sharma of Delhi Police who, like Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad chief Hemant Karkare, was shot dead by terrorists. This is because the Congress wanted to send out, ever so slyly, a message to Muslim voters in Jamia Nagar for whom MC Sharma is not a hero but a villain because he dared raid a terrorist hideout in their locality. We must also presume, since there is no evidence to the contrary, that the advertisement was endorsed, if not cleared, by the Prime Minister. This speaks volumes about the integrity quotient of a man whose honesty, as claimed by his admirers, admittedly a rapidly disappearing exotic breed, is beyond reproach. Perhaps the Prime Minister needs to be reminded that only cowards take recourse to lies to cover up their failures.

Meanwhile, we had the occasion to hear the Prime Minister address a shaken nation 24 hours after the siege of Mumbai began. In his by now familiar laboured style, he expressed his “shock” at “the dastardly terror attacks. “I strongly condemn these acts of senseless violence,” he added. So what’s new? “I share the shock and distress of all those affected by these blasts,” the Prime Minister said on October 29, 2005, after the bombings in Delhi on Dhanteras. He was “shocked” on March 7, 2006, after the Sankat Mochan temple bombing. On July 12, 2006, he did not quite say that he was ‘shocked’ by the Mumbai commuter train bombings, but he did say, “No one can make India kneel” and promised that his “Government will do whatever is required” to deal with terrorism. On February 19, 2007, the Prime Minister was more than ‘shocked’ by the Samjhauta Express bombings — he was “anguished” and promised the “culprits will be caught”. On hearing about the serial bombings in Jaipur on May 13, 2008, the Prime Minister was again “shocked” and condemned “this dastardly attack”. On July 28, 2008, after visiting Ahmedabad following the serial bombings, he took care to mention that he accompanied Ms Sonia Gandhi before expressing “solidarity with the people of Gujarat”. On September 13, 2008, he “condemned the serial blasts in Delhi”; a month-and-a-half later, on October 30, 2008, he “strongly condemned” the Assam bombings.

The Prime Minister now mocks at the victims of terrorism and seeks to fool the people of this country by declaring, “We are not prepared to countenance a situation in which the safety and security of our citizens can be violated with impunity by terrorists… We will take the strongest possible measures to ensure that there is no repetition of such terrorist attacks.”

Having countenanced repeated terrorist attacks, which the Congress now brazenly pretends never took place, and silently witnessed the safety and security of our citizens being violated with impunity by terrorists, the Prime Minister now expects the people to believe that he shall join battle with the merchants of death. To prove that he means business, he had his Government, such as it is, to put out the bogus claim that he had summoned the Director-General of Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence and the Pakistani Government had meekly conceded his demand. In an interview to Karan Thapar for his television show, Devil’s Advocate, Pakistan’s President Asif Ali Zardari has rubbished this claim. According to Mr Zardari, the Prime Minister, in a telephonic talk with him on Friday, had requested for sending a ‘director’ — a mid-level bureaucrat in the official hierarchy. “There was a miscommunication… We had announced that a director will come from my side… That is what was requested by the Prime Minister and that is what we agreed,” Mr Zardari said.

That the Prime Minister, after all his bluster, should settle for talks with a director of the Pakistan Government so as to “take the strongest possible measures to ensure that there is no repetition of such terrorist acts” is a measure of his true intention.

Mayhem in Mumbai

 

 

 

It has been close to 20 hours since the Mumbai has been under sieze and this is all ‘This Walking Zombie’ has to say.

Terrorists left before I arrived!

Terrorists left before I arrived!

 

 

Before I could reach there, the terrorists who had attacked one of the hospitals, the Cama Hospital, had left and those who attacked the railway station had also left,” Union Home Minister Shivraj Patil said.

Pray tell us, What did the Zombie expect?

Terrorists to have waited for ‘him’ to arrive – all fully attired in a ‘Bund Gala Suit’ – there with a ‘bouquet of roses’ for him!

How many Times before have  you heard the ‘Zombie’ mumble these very same inanities every time India is attacked… at least ‘I’ have lost the count.

Patil, who condemned the attack as an act of cowardice, said the country would remain strong even as the terrorists attempt to weaken and create difficulty for the citizens.

While I agree that this is no time to pick faults and point fingers at Individuals, yet those who are at the helms of affairs should be held accountable. They can not –  just can not get away with inanities alone. Let me be clear.

Reproducing the statement of Shri L.K Advani.

Statement by Shri L.K. Advani
Leader of the Opposition (Lok Sabha)
New Delhi27 November 2008

–  The terrorist attack on Mumbai is an audacious challenge to India‘s Nation State. 
–  While maintaining calm and unity, we must all resolve to break the back of
India‘s enemies. 

I am traumatized by the events in Mumbai since last night. Clearly, the terrorists have declared a full-scale war on India and sought to sever the country’s economic nerve with their meticulously planned carnage across the metropolis. The magnitude of their sinister design and determination is evident from the fact that they are yet to be fully overpowered. They are still holding people hostage in some leading hotels and private houses more than 12 hours after starting the onslaught on innocent people in various parts of the city.

No other city in our country has borne the brunt of terrorism so repeatedly and in so deadly a fashion as Mumbai. In earlier terrorist acts in Mumbai as well as in other places in India, outside Jammu & Kashmir, the attacks have been mostly in the form of bomb blasts by anonymous persons. For the first time, last night, terrorists have also resorted to indiscriminate firing at a crowded railway station, hospital, luxury hotels, cinema halls, and residential buildings. Also, for the first time, the fidayeen attackers have held foreigners as hostages. As many as 100 persons have been killed in this mayhem.

Last night’s terrorist attack using grenades, other explosives and AK47 rifles is in a very significant way a continuation of the first episode of serial bomb blasts in Mumbai on 12 March 1993.

It appears 26 November 2008 is a continuation of 13 March 1993.

In the context of what has happened last night in Mumbai, there is no doubt that both the UPA Government at the Centre and the CongressNCP coalition Government in Maharashtra have a lot to answer for. However, I shall not comment on this aspect now as today is not the occasion to do so.

Right now, the need of the hour is for the people of Mumbai, Maharashtra and the entire country to stay united and calm. Maintenance of peace, tranquility, communal harmony and patriotic unity must be our highest priority. 

I spoke to the Prime Minister last night to express my concern as soon as I heard the news. Today morning he called me to suggest that both of us should travel together to Mumbai to examine the situation, express solidarity with the security forces and also try to provide succour to the victims of the tragedy. I have readily agreed to his proposal. Accordingly, I deferred my plan to leave for Mumbai immediately.


I pay homage to all the brave policemen and police officers who confronted the terrorists by risking their lives. In particular, I feel sad that Hemant Karkare, chief of the AntiTerrorist Squad (ATS),
Maharashtra, senior police officers  Ashok Kamte andVijay Salaskar have lost their lives in yesterday’s operation. Coming in the wake of the recent martyrdom of police officerMohan Chand Sharma in an encounter with terrorists in New Delhi, these acts of dedicated service and sacrifice have earned our security forces the gratitude of the nation.
