Time and again, Arvind Kejriwal has exhibited an unusual resistance to facts and reason and displayed an uncanny knack of inventing stories out of thin air. He has officially surpassed Chetan Bhagat as the most (in)famous IIT-ian to make a living out of Spinning Yarns.
Yesterday, Arvind Kejriwal decided to take it a little further when he said Rohith Vemula was forced to commit suicide for talking about B.R.Ambedkar among students. At this point I am forced to ask myself if Arvind Kejriwal actually has a plan and a vision for India or does he just make shit up as he goes along.
Mr. Kejriwal seems to have forgotten that Vemula was suspended because he and his friends indulged in illegal behavior and beat up a student who happened to be an ABVP leader. Is Kejriwal endorsing Hooliganism when he blames the Authorities and the BJP for his suspension? Is Kejriwal saying the Authorities should ignore acts of Hooliganism if the Perpetrator happens to be a Dalit? Is it not blatant Casteism at display here?
Also, Arvind Kejriwal has clearly not read Rohith’s Suicide letter. It clearly says, in no uncertain terms, “No one is responsible for my this act of killing myself. No one has instigated me, whether by their acts or by their words to this act. This is my decision and I am the only one responsible for this.” Arvind Kejriwal and his ilk do not feel the slightest bit of shame in twisting even a morbid event such as Suicide for Political Mileage.
What’s Evident from Kejriwal’s remarks is he is desperately trying to gain the ‘Dalit Votebank’ for his party. I guess this is what Vemula meant when he said, “The value of a man was reduced to his immediate identity and nearest possibility. To a vote. To a number. To a thing.” That Vultures like Kejriwal ignore the Glorious Miracle that is a Human Being and reduce him to a mere Votebank. All Liberal Parties must resort to Votebank Politics for without such forced victimization of a people as a whole, their very existence will be at great peril.
When it became clear after the enthralling Debate in the Parliament that the BJP and Smriti Irani were wrongfully blamed for Vemula’s death and the matter gradually died down, Arvind Kejriwal realized he had to shift the goalpost if he had to succeed in gaining the Dalit Votebank. Thus, the Vemula Suicide was not just because of Vemula anymore. According to Kejriwal, it was because he spoke about Dr. Ambedkar. Since Dr. Ambedkar is the greatest Dalit Icon of Independent India, it must be shown that the BJP is insulting his legacy. If people can be successfully brainwashed into buying this nonsense, then the Dalit Votebank will finally be his. But what Mr. Kejriwal doesn’t realize is people aren’t stupid. He might be an IIT-ian but that doesn’t make the rest of us Blithering Idiots who will fall for his Nefarious Agenda.
And the Aaptards are a special breed of Devotees. They adhere to the teachings of Gandhi to the very core but only selectively. They See No Evil, They Hear No Evil and They Speak No Evil when it comes to Arvind Kejriwal. All his Failings, all his Dubious Politics, all his incompetence is rationalized religiously by the 1st Commandment of the Book of Kejriwal: Sab Milay Huay Hain Ji.
Also, I find it bewildering that people who speak about how Rohith Vemula wanted to become a writer like Carl Sagan thoroughly ignore the sentence that was written right before it, “And I have become a monster. I always wanted to be a writer. A writer of science, like Carl Sagan.” If we cannot ignore the fact that Vemula wanted to be a writer, we should ignore the fact that he considered himself a monster when he wrote that Suicide Note. We cannot ignore the fact that Rohith Vemula suffered from some form of guilt which contributed to his suicide.
Despite the Deplorable Agenda that Arvind Kejriwal and his Liberal ilk are trying to further, people must come to terms with the fact that Rohith Vemula was suffering from Chronic Depression and was in dire need of professional help but all he received was a lethal dose of Misguided Political Activism which only aggravated his illness and culminated in the Tragic Event of his Suicide.
