How long will it take to establish Hindu Rashtra, Mr. Chidambaram?

By Mushtaque Madni

If dreams have an old habit of dying unceremoniously, cherished dreams have a worse habit: killing others mercilessly. If India’s forefathers and freedom fighters were ready to lay their lives for a secular Independent India, their successors in the Congress, barring few, are ready to make India contrary to the freedom fighters’ dreams.

It is hardly surprising then that the brave Union Home Minister P. Chidambaram who, not long ago, had publicly spoken about the menace of the Hindutva terrorism. But he is now silent after RSS’ progeny BJP took him to task for committing the grave sin of crossing the ‘Lakshman Rekha.’ In its unending onslaught in Parliament last winter, which resulted in the loss of hundreds of crores to the public exchequer, BJP, in the garb of nailing him down in the 2G scam, saw to it that Chidambaram could not open his mouth during the entire session.

But what is surprising now is that after that unfortunate incident, both the warring parties, especially BJP which was baying for Chidambaram’s blood, seem to have arrived at a mutual understanding of safeguarding each other’s interests. And the basis of this secret understanding seems that Chidambaram would never again make a mention of Hindutva terror; in return the BJP would not take him to task in Parliament.

But, the drama that unfolded many a secret between the two doesn’t stop here. With NCTC in the offing, Chidambaram, a Tamil Brahmin, seems to be determined to launch it at any cost. Small wonder then, that the strongest opposition, apart from many a chief minister, came from none but Narendra Modi, a Shudra belonging to the Teli caste and a permanent victim of RSS’ Brahminical conspiracies. He seems to have understood that NCTC is nothing but a glorious version of Manusmiriti, Brahmins’ deadliest weapon against non-Brahmins and unquestionable law unto itself.

Chidambaram, ostensibly, also chose to ignore the Ram Pradhan Committee report about 26/11 that clearly mentioned that IB, the premier intelligence agency, received specific information with longitude and latitude details about the expected arrival of the Pakistani terrorists. But IB chose not to pass such a specific information either to the Western Naval Command or to the Mumbai Police to whom it mattered most.

Chidambaram, given the compact and all alert network he must be presiding over, also must be in the know of the book ‘Who Killed Karkare’ written by S. M. Mushrif which squarely blamed IB for staging the carnage with the single aim to have Hemant Karkare liquidated and protect the identities of the masterminds of the bomb blasts that could well be respected celebrities of the Sangh Parivar. In many a function held across the country, Mushrif openly stated that 26/11 was a meticulously planned and systematically staged mayhem. It seems nobody, including the Union Home Ministry, wants to take cognizance of such a grave charge despite Mushrif challenging the entire system for an open and live public debate on any TV channel. Understandably then, the media conveniently shut its doors, windows and gates in the face of Mushrif.

Mr. Chidambaram also appears to be uncomfortable with another book, ‘Godse’s Children - Hindutva Terror in India’, which has thoroughly documented research work by Subhash Gatade, a Maharashtrian writer. But since Chidambaram happens to be an integral part of the system that invariably has deep and committed sympathy with the Hindutva brigade, he couldn’t find time to release the latter book dealing with a strictly taboo subject while only days ealier he had found time to share the dais with BJP’s Arun Jaitley to release a novel on the fictitious “Indian Mujahidin” authored by a scribe from the Indian Express, the so-called leader of ‘journalism of courage’.  

It is now an open secret that the Sangh Parivar’s talented offshoots Abhinav Bharat and Sanatan Sanstha were constantly engaged in bomb blasting and terror activities across the country and government of Maharashtra had even recommended to the Centre to ban Sanatan Sanstha. But Mr. Chidambaram failed to find courage to ban the Sanatan Sanstha while renewing the ban on SIMI on fictitious grounds and proofs cooked by some fertile minds in his ministry and later parroted by police stations in various places which filed identical reports. Chidambaram is also well aware that in Bhonsla Military School of Nasik and Akanksha Resort of Pune over five hundred Hindutva terrorists were trained by serving and retired Army personnel including Lt. Col. Purohit Prasad. But despite these facts no attempt was ever made even to question let alone arrest them and shut down these dubious places. They are so bold that they are now holding an open conference in Goa to convert India into a Hindu rashtra and one of their ilk has just been released in the Malegaon 2008 case.

Can’t we then, the lost sheep of erstwhile Bharat, from the above cited stray examples, draw a logical conclusion that Mr. Chidambaram has surrendered to the forces busy to convert India into an Aryavart Hindu Rashtra. Is it not high time we wished him good luck and goodbye?
