Let me begin by saying that ‘The Wire’ is as irrelevant a media outlet as it’s probable ideological masters. Hence, to probably gain some foothold in the mad media race, this media outlet decided to give a lunatic “historian” a platform for his anti-India and anti- army rant. The fact that ‘The Wire’s’ facebook page has barely 200k likes might be the cause of such an anti national article. However, this failed media outlet must understand that the masses of this country find their journalism absolutely brazen. It might as well ponder upon the possibility of shifting it’s “Headquarters” from New Delhi to Rawalpindi. The illogical article of Mr Partha Chatterjee needs an analysis. And we are ready to give this historian a lecture on history. As for the article, it is nothing but a pile of aristocratic words, illogical arguments and absolute lies.
Mr Partha Chatterjee, the infamous historian in his article published on ‘The Wire’ entitled ”In Kashmir, India is witnessing it’s General Dyer Moment” made a vague, illogical and false comparison between the butcher of Amritsar and our Army General Bipin Rawat.
How he came to this conclusion simply amuses me.
Mr Partha Chatterjee, you probably did not attend your history classes regularly, and that is why you make such foolish comparisons.
Firstly, you should be knowing that on April 14th 1919, General Dyer opened fire on a peaceful crowd assembled for Vaisakhi celebrations at Jalianwala Bagh. He fired 1605 rounds for about 15 minutes, killing everyone in sight. General Bipin Rawat on the other hand was not even in the line of action during the period in which Major Gogoi strapped the leader of a stone pelting pack on the bonnet of his jeep. I hope you understand simple English words like ‘presence’ and ‘absence’. Do you?
Secondly, General Dyer opened fire on a peaceful crowd. In complete contradiction, Major Gogoi was surrounded by a cowardly pack of about 1200 stone pelters. He therefore picked up the leader of this pack, tied him to the jeep and made an escape from that area, using the man as a shield. He did so for about 20 minutes.
What Mr. Partha Chatterjee says is that Major Gogoi, for fun, tied this man on a jeep and rode him for hours altogether. It is because of such statements why I call Mr Historian a liar. It would have been very easy for Major Gogoi and his comrades to shoot all the 1200 stone pelters. However, his presence of mind and professionalism, unlike you, did not permit such ghoulish acts.
Major Gogoi not only saved his life, but also saved the entire valley from a bloodbath. Instead of appreciating this fact, fools like you go about ranting that our army is a fascist army. I say you are the embodiment of Fascism and Nazism in India. As for Major Gogoi, we are proud of his deed, and we are equally ashamed of people like you, who never miss a chance to pounce on the Army and government.
Mr Partha Chatterjee, who calls himself a Historian and activist, spends half the year in the United States of America, jumping from one university to the other, spewing venom against the Indian Military under the garb of freedom of expression. Since universities these days are the ‘temples of free thinking’, hence they welcome such anti-national elements.
As for ‘The Wire’, it’s elite editors have sold their souls off to get a few more likes. These same cocktail circuit liberals of India perhaps go into hiding when the soldiers put their lives in danger, to save everyone they can in cases of calamities and emergencies. These liberals will never ever appreciate the role of the armed forces, as it contradicts their agenda. During the Kashmir floods, not one of these sick liberals and free thinkers came out to salute the army. Therefore, this gang has no credibilty.
The liberals are tensed, they know the masses disagree with them and no one cares of their barks. They still have time to mend their ways, which I guess they won’t. Afterall, they need a salary to feed themselves, the salary which they get for abusing India.
Finally, how a section of Indian media has turned a blind eye to this development, with only Republic Tv and Times Now taking offence to the article, shows the sense of camaraderie between such liberals and the cocktail circuit media.
