Sometimes, I wonder why our Hon. PM Narendra Modi doesn’t speak much on the political issues that have bother Indians more than the disappointing show at Rio Olympics, as of now. However, when I read of his recent press statement on the Kashmir issue, I learnt two lessons for life. One, the leaders, who are true to their ideals, never back off, and two, they never believe in mudslinging like the shoot and scoot politicians of today. They believe in playing masterstrokes, a coup de grace that stumps every opponent for once and for all.
If the issue of Kashmir shall be addressed, it shall be addressed by the books. Along with Kashmir valley, regions like PoK and Balochistan shall be addressed too: Narendra Modi
In an address to the other parties during an all-party meet, Narendra Modi declared, that if the issue of Kashmir shall be addressed, it shall be addressed by the books, i.e. acting as per the law. With that, he also included that only Kashmir valley need not be addressed, regions like PoK (Pakistan occupied Kashmir) and Balochistan need to be addressed as well. In short, Modi did what none even thought of: PoK is ours, no issues about that.
If that is enough, Narendra Modi has also boldly declared, that Pakistan needs to look into its own backyard before pinpointing us, especially in the case of the atrocities With that declaration, Narendra Modi has stumped everyone else, if not the diehard opposition for that matter.
For beginners, who don’t know much, Kashmir is the literal definition of an oxymoron; it is one of the most beautiful regions in the entire India, and yet one of the most violence afflicted too. Right from 1947, when hordes of Pakistani army regulars, disguised as Pathans, and followed by some Razakars (loyalists of Islamic rule) had invaded Kashmir, with the sole purpose of capturing the region, to today, when scores of directionless Kashmiris (they don’t even know where they’re heading) are willing to attack our security forces, just because a terrorist named Burhan Wani was killed (in their eyes, he was ‘murdered’), the state of Jammu & Kashmir (especially the KASHMIR VALLEY) has been rather an eyesore in the eyes of the Indian masses.
Who is responsible for this mess? While reasons and facts chiefly point out at the hopelessly romantic (in political terms) and short sighted PM, Jawahar Lal Nehru, the real reason sits far beyond the borders. It is the attitude of our neighbor Pakistan, which is just not ready to accept that Kashmir is an integral, unbreakable part of India.
Worse, a country that cannot keep its own regions intact and loyal has the audacity to point fingers at us. Pakistan, who attempts to seek attention by piggy backing on issues of Kashmir, completely ignores, or rather hides efficiently, the atrocities they commit themselves in the regions of Pak occupied Kashmir and Balochistan. The residents there don’t have access to even basic amenities, such as clean water, sanitation, electricity etc. Anyone who tries to even protest against this is brutally assaulted, and in bizarre cases, even murdered. Forget men and women, the Pakistani forces, like true blue terrorists, don’ t even spare children as small as 1 – 2 years old, and they talk about the Kashmir valley being their part!
If you don’t believe my words, then here are some hard facts. According to Ahmed Rashid, a Baloch journalist and activist, in 2014 itself, the figure of those who have disappeared run ‘between hundreds to thousands, even millions’. Balochistan is notorious for the disappearance of many a journalists, who try to cover the issues that plague this region. Right from the 50s, when Nawab Nauroz Khan, an independence activist for Balochistan, was imprisoned, and his entire family brutally hanged, Pakistani forces, in a systematic and devious way, follow the policy of ‘pick and dump’, under which thousands of people, almost all of them being innocent middle class dwellers, including women as well, are kidnapped, mutilated, tortured and murdered, and their bodies are made to disappear, and the nation endorsing them is asking us to stop ‘the atrocities’ on the terrorists of Kashmir? IRONIC is the most civilized word one should use for these monsters, who don’t think twice before butchering alive women for their ulterior motives in KASHMIR VALLEY!
Even Amnesty International, apparently the most biased human rights organization in the world, has admitted, even if grudgingly, to the atrocities on people in Balochistan and PoK. Following is a sample:-
‘In March, Baloch activists were barred from leaving the country to speak at a conference in the USA about human rights violations in Balochistan, PoK and Sindh. A new policy for international NGOs was passed in October, giving the government the power to monitor their funds and operations and to close them down on the basis of activities considered to be against the interests of Pakistan.’
Now cut to 2016, New Delhi. Ever since Burhan Wani was killed by the joint forces of Indian Army and the Jammu & Kashmir State Police, Narendra Modi has been viciously attacked for his apparent silence on this issue. Technically, he didn’t even need to speak on this issue, because the Home Minister and the Defence Minister were already unequivocal on this. But the constant pestering, and the ridicules that were bombarded upon, by the Left influenced mainstream media, and pseudo secular politicians, forced our Honb. PM to throw this master stroke on them, and it really takes some balls of steel to do it.
With that, it is proven without doubt, that if anybody can emulate the nationalist ideals of the eminent visionary, Dr. Shyama Prasad Mukherjee, it is Narendra Modi for sure. It took years, for someone to materialize the idea of ‘Ek Desh, Ek Nishan, Ek Vidhan, Ek Pradhan’ (One Nation, One Emblem/Flag, One Legislature and One Prime Minister). But if Narendra Modi is doing that, what’s the issue? Some people can never understand how Narendra Modi is contributing to INDIA.
Nicknamed the ‘Poster boy of Hindutva and Saffron terror’ by the INTELLECTUAL TERRORISTS themselves, the bold move of Narendra Modi has been acknowledged by one and all, including the Baloch activists, who are thanking Modi for acknowledging their plight. Call it whatever you want, but one must appreciate the person who has taken the initiative to make INDIA a one, unified nation, even if it means wresting back our ceded regions from their imperialist occupiers. If Pakistan calls for an independent Kashmir, make PoK independent as well. That’s Narendra Modi for you.
And in case you’re wondering what made the Pakistani PM dedicate their independence day to Kashmir valley, that’s the same PoK and Balochistan statement by NaMo. Well there again, That’s Narendra Modi for you
