Cease­fire with Pak­istan and ter­ror­ists is In­dia’s be­trayal

Learn­ing noth­ing from his­tory, our lead­ers re­peat­edly de­clared cease­fire and en­sured that our sol­diers were killed most un­pre­pared and so were civil­ians liv­ing in bor­der ar­eas.

Let me be­gin with a dis­claimer: I am no sup­porter of any one par­tic­u­lar po­lit­i­cal party nor have I any af­fil­i­a­tion of any kind with any po­lit­i­cal party. I am com­pletely aghast at the re­peat­edly be­trayal of In­dia’s in­ter­est by po­lit­i­cal par­ties who are con­trol­ling the helm of af­fairs in In­dia since 1947! The cre­ation of Pak­istan it­self should never have been ac­cepted since we be­lieve in “unity of all re­li­gions” since ages! How did then we com­pro­mised with it and ac­cepted cre­ation of Pak­istan on the ba­sis of re­li­gion in 1947?

As if this was not enough, we did not al­low full and fi­nal merger of Jammu and Kash­mir with In­dia and al­lowed Pak­istan to take away a huge chunk of the state with them in 1947-48 by fool­ishly rush­ing to UN and call­ing for “third party in­ter­ven­tion and cease­fire” with­out tak­ing over whole of the state even though our Army was fully pre­pared for it! In 1971 war, we won de­ci­sive vic­tory against Pak­istan yet made no ef­fort to en­sure full and fi­nal merger of J&K with In­dia! We had cap­tured more than 93,000 Pak­istani Army pris­on­ers of war but we left them all though they didn’t re­lease about 100 of our sol­diers who they held as cap­tive to be bru­tally tor­tured as even former Pak­istan PM Zul­fikar Ali Bhutto tes­ti­fied that he heard In­dian

sol­diers be­ing tor­tured through­out the night in ad­join­ing jail rooms!

Even now things don’t end! In 1999, our lead­ers led by then PM Atal Bi­hari Va­j­payee in­vited Pak­istani in­vader Gen Pervez Mushar­raf just 2 to 3 months af­ter Kargil war thus mock­ing at the more than 600 sol­diers who were slaugh­tered at the or­der of Mushar­raf! Cap­tain Sau­rav Kalia and 5 sol­diers of 4 Jat Reg­i­ment were tor­tured for not 5 or 10 or 15 or 20 days but for nearly a month be­fore blind­ing them with hot iron rods, maim­ing them by cut­ting their body parts in­clud­ing pri­vate parts and then fi­nally shoot­ing them at the head and hand­ing over their mu­ti­lated body to In­dia! Ramzan cease­fire was de­clared which only saw ter­ror­ists at­tack­ing J&K As­sem­bly, Par­lia­ment of In­dia, hi­jack­ing aero­plane and en­sur­ing re­lease of dreaded ter­ror­ists like Maulana Mehmood Azhar who founded Jaish-eMo­ham­mad which till now is en­sur­ing killing of many sol­diers and civil­ians, Omar and oth­ers and ul­ti­mately cease­fire had to be re­voked!

No les­son from past

Learn­ing noth­ing from his­tory, our lead­ers re­peat­edly de­clared cease­fire and en­sured that our sol­diers were killed most un­pre­pared and so were civil­ians liv­ing in bor­der. Just re­cently we saw how more than lakh peo­ple liv­ing in bor­der ar­eas had to va­cate their houses when Pak­istan tak­ing full ad­van­tage of Ramzan cease­fire killed many of them and shelled their homes and even po­lice sta­tions! Most re­cently we saw how one As­sis­tant Com­man­dant and 4 sol­diers of BSF were slaugh­tered dur­ing “Ramzan cease­fire”!

Just re­cently we heard and saw in news how ter­ror­ists bru­tally killed Ris­ing Kash­mir edi­tor Shu­jaat Bukhari and also Army sol­dier Au­rangzeb of 44 RR who be­longed to 4 Jammu and Kash­mir Light In­fantry at Shadi­marg in Shopian af­ter kid­nap­ping him at gun point! But the worst came when we saw how PM Naren­dra Modi and Union Min­is­ter Ra­jyavard­han Singh Rathore ap­peared in ad­ver­tise­ments on “Phys­i­cal Fit­ness” in dif­fer­ent news chan­nels! Our sol­diers and jour­nal­ists are be­ing bru­tally killed in J&K but our lead­ers are busy with “phys­i­cal fit­ness chal­lenge shows” and “Yoga Day” on June 21 most shame­lessly! This is just not done!

Is Ramzan a li­cence to Pak­istan and ter­ror­ists to kill our brave sol­diers? Yes! This alone ex­plains that why our lead­ers learn noth­ing from past ex­pe­ri­ences and give a “free li­cense” to Pak­istan and ter­ror­ists to kill our brave sol­diers and jour­nal­ists and other civil­ians in­clud­ing women and chil­dren!

Which self-re­spect­ing and sov­er­eign coun­try will be­have like this? Are we re­ally a sov­er­eign coun­try? Is some for­eign power giv­ing po­lit­i­cal dona­tions to our lead­ers and re­mote con­trol­ling them? Is this is why lead­ers learn noth­ing and laugh shame­lessly in­dulging in “phys­i­cal fit­ness shows” even as our brave sol­diers and jour­nal­ists are pub­licly mas­sa­cred? Supreme Court must or­der an in­de­pen­dent probe into this!

Supreme Court can­not keep on see­ing all this like a mute spec­ta­tor! Why our lead­ers take such steps like cease­fire with ter­ror­ists and

Most re­cently we saw how one As­sis­tant Com­man­dant and 4 sol­diers of BSF were slaugh­tered dur­ing “Ramzan cease­fire”! Just re­cently we heard and saw in news how ter­ror­ists bru­tally killed Ris­ing Kash­mir edi­tor Shu­jaat Bukhari and also Army sol­dier Au­rangzeb of 44 RR who be­longed to 4 Jammu and Kash­mir Light In­fantry at Shadi­marg in Shopian af­ter kid­nap­ping him at gun point!

Pak­istan in the name of Ramzan whose only ob­jec­tive is to kill all those who are loyal to In­dia? Why lead­ers say they have given full and free hand to sol­diers but ground re­al­ity is that pro-Pak­istani peo­ple are given free­dom to at­tack sol­diers, stone their ve­hi­cles, beat them and yet FIR reg­is­tered against our sol­diers! If this trend con­tin­ues then we are cer­tainly al­low­ing UN to pass “ad­verse re­marks” against In­dia as we just saw and In­dia will be mocked as the “weak­est coun­try in the world who is like a tiger with­out teeth” as is hap­pen­ing also and hap­pened dur­ing Kargil war also when we shame­lessly in­vited Pak­istani in­vader Gen Mushar­raf to In­dia even though he and his sol­diers could not win in Kargil and take away any ter­ri­tory from us!

It is in “Modi Raj” that we are see­ing pro-Pak­istani el­e­ments be­ing given a free hand and yet crim­i­nal cases against more than 10,000 of them are with­drawn who in­dulged in stone pelt­ing at our brave sol­diers with­out any provo­ca­tion! What mes­sage is be­ing sent? Which for­eign power is be­ing favoured by all this? At whose in­stance? This needs an in­de­pen­dent and fair in­ves­ti­ga­tion by a Spe­cial In­ves­ti­ga­tion Team con­sti­tuted by Supreme Court it­self!

Cen­tre is re­spon­si­ble for killing of our brave sol­diers like Au­rangzeb and oth­ers and our brave jour­nal­ists like Shu­jaat Bukhari! Why Cen­tre re­peat­edly trusts Pak­istan? Why Cen­tre re­fuses to learn from re­peated be­tray­als and back­stab­bing by Pak­istan and ter­ror­ists spon­sored and trained di­rectly by Pak­istani Army? Why our lead­ers are be­hav­ing like “agents of Pak­istan and ter­ror­ists”? No law, no Con­sti­tu­tion and no party can be above In­dia! The in­ter­est of our na­tion and its forces and peo­ple are supreme which can­not be sub­sti­tuted by any­one else! But lead­ers just don’t seem to get this in their head!

Hu­mil­i­a­tion

How can In­dian flags be burnt in Kash­mir and flags of ter­ror groups like ISIS are al­lowed to be waved openly in Kash­mir? How can sep­a­ratists group like Hur­riyat keep get­ting ev­ery year more than Rs 500 crore from Cen­tre for spend­ing it on se­cu­rity, trav­el­ling, stay­ing in ho­tels and other ex­penses at our tax pay­ers cost? How can Pak­istan keep butcher­ing our brave sol­diers and jour­nal­ists and yet Cen­tre uni­lat­er­ally keeps ex­tend­ing Most Favoured Na­tion sta­tus granted to Pak­istan since 1996?

How long will we al­low Pak­istan to ben­e­fit from In­dus wa­ter which be­longs to In­dia even as they kill our sol­diers and wage proxy war against In­dia by which ter­ror­ists re­peat­edly at­tack big cities like Mum­bai and oth­ers and mas­sacre our peo­ple and brave sol­diers ev­ery now and then? How can Supreme Court keep see­ing all this like a “mute spec­ta­tor”? How can our sol­diers’ se­cu­rity and se­cu­rity of jour­nal­ists and other peo­ple be

com­pro­mised in the name of “Ramzan cease­fire”?

Subra­ma­nium Swamy rightly slammed it as “Po­lit­i­cal im­po­tency”! Many re­tired gen­er­als have slammed this “cease­fire sham” which only serves ter­ror­ists to “re-group, rearm and re-strike” for which no one but Cen­tre is re­spon­si­ble! Cease­fire with Pak­istan and ter­ror­ists is In­dia’s be­trayal which un­der no cir­cum­stances can ever be “par­doned or jus­ti­fied or over­looked”! Why stop all oper­a­tions in Ramzan against Pak­istan and ter­ror­ists? What has Ramzan got to do with ter­ror­ists and Pak­istan? Do Pak­istan and ter­ror­ists re­spect Ramzan?

Ramzan cease­fire

We have seen them killing our brave sol­diers and jour­nal­ists among oth­ers ev­ery years since ages yet our lead­ers most shame­lessly again re­sort to “Ramzan cease­fire” thus club­bing Is­lam and Mus­lims with ter­ror­ists! How else can this be jus­ti­fied? This is “worst ap­pease­ment not of Mus­lims but of ter­ror­ists and Pak­istan” which ev­ery good In­dian de­tests but our lead­ers care two hoots about it!

Is some Is­lamic coun­try be­hind all this “Ramzan cease­fire sham”? Is­lamic coun­tries like Egypt them­selves don’t care for Ramzan and at­tack other Is­lamic coun­try as Egypt did when it at­tacked Syria and so has been the case many times with many other coun­tries! It is only in In­dia that we see “Ter­ror­ists and Pak­istan” be­ing given a free li­cense to kill In­di­ans in the name of “Ramzan cease­fire” with some lead­ers and jour­nal­ists jus­ti­fy­ing it for their own vested in­ter­ests which we shall never come to know!

Re­tired Army sol­diers and gen­er­als keep shout­ing at this “cease­fire sham” and mock­ery be­ing made of our peo­ple and sol­diers by lead­ers in dif­fer­ent news chan­nels but they don’t re­ally bother about it and in­dulge in saber rat­tling against Pak­istan and ter­ror­ists only dur­ing elec­tion time! Right now they are busy in “fit­ness chal­lenge” shows! Most dis­grace­ful and shock­ing!Such lead­ers are more danger­ous than Pak­istan and ter­ror­ists which alone ex­plains why even former Supreme Court Judge Markandey Katju slammed them as “rogues and scoundrels!”

They are just not both­ered about safety of brave sol­diers like Au­rangzeb and fear­less jour­nal­ists like Bukhari and want to just ap­pease Pak­istan and ter­ror­ists at all costs and un­der all cir­cum­stances as if they have voted them to power or fi­nanced their elec­tion cam­paigns!

Enough is enough

It is high time and now this too must be in­ves­ti­gated in­de­pen­dently by SIT com­pris­ing of em­i­nent former CJI, se­nior and in­de­pen­dent jour­nal­ists and former Judges of Supreme Court con­sti­tuted by Supreme Court! The very sur­vival of our na­tion is at stake! These shame­less politi­cians have now com­pletely stopped car­ing at all for the re­peated killings of our brave sol­diers and jour­nal­ists un­der the garb of “Ramzan cease­fire” and try to grab peo­ple’s at­ten­tion in name of “fit­ness chal­lenge”! Fam­i­lies of slain sol­diers call for “re­venge and les­son to be taught to Pak­istan” but what they get to hear is li­cense given to ter­ror­ists and Pak­istan to kill In­di­ans in name of “Ramzan cease­fire”!

Subra­ma­nium Swamy rightly slammed it as “Po­lit­i­cal im­po­tency”! Many re­tired gen­er­als have slammed this “cease­fire sham” which only serves ter­ror­ists to “re-group, re-arm and re-strike” for which no one but Cen­tre is re­spon­si­ble! Cease­fire with Pak­istan and ter­ror­ists is In­dia’s be­trayal which un­der no cir­cum­stances can ever be “par­doned or jus­ti­fied or over­looked”!

Dead body of ab­ducted In­dian Army sol­dier Au­rangzeb was found in Pul­wama.
