Since the time we got independence from the British nearly seventy years back, the Congress has ruled the country for a major part. If one further scrutinizes the periods of Congress rule, it was one family that called the shots during most times. Except the brief rule of Lal Bahadur Shastri for one and a half years and the five year rule of PV Narasimha Rao, the Congress has been synonymous with the Nehru Gandhi family. So we had Jawaharlal Nehru as PM for nineteen long years, Indira Gandhi for fifteen years, Rajiv Gandhi for five years and also a ten year rule of Sonia Gandhi, although she was not the official Prime Minister.
Although Congressmen will disagree, the fact remains that this family and thereby the party has all through championed the cause of dividing people on the basis of caste and religion and has continuously taken an anti-Hindu stand.
Jawaharlal Nehru and his cabinet introduced the Hindu Code Bills, thereby introducing the concept of different laws for different religions. It was during the Congress regime that the flawed reservation policy was started. While nobody is against providing scholarships or concessions for people who are financially not sound, basing this on caste is a flaw that has created further divide among the people and pushed meritocracy to the backseat. After Indira Gandhi was murdered, anti-Sikh riots took place and some of the Congressmen like Jagdish Tytler were actively involved. The tenure of Rajiv Gandhi saw vote bank politics taken to the next level in the infamous Shah Bano case when the government passed a legislation overruling the court verdict that instructed Shah Bano’s husband to provide her alimony.
But it was during the ten year rule of Sonia Gandhi with Dr Manmohan Singh as a dummy Prime Minister, when the anti-Hindu stand got really nasty. Dr Manmohan Singh’s statement before the 2009 General Elections that minorities have the first right to the resources in India was hailed as a secular statement. Why should the minorities have the first right? Why should all Indians not have equal rights? It was also during this ten year rule that saw terrorists like Ishrat Jahan being projected as martyrs, dreaded terrorist Osama Bin Laden respectfully addressed as Osama ji and radical Islamists like Zakir Naik given patronage among others.
However, the most despicable act committed by the Congress during UPA-2 was to create the myth of saffron terror for their dirty vote bank politics. The Samjhauta Express blasts that took place in 2007 left 68 people killed and many more injured.
The initial investigations pointed at radical Islamist terror organizations like Laskar-e-Toiba (LeT) and Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI) as being the masterminds behind the attacks. However, the NIA under the UPA government made people believe that it was the members of Hindu organization Abhinav Bharat, who were behind this. Swamy Aseemanand was taken into custody and was made to confess that he was indeed the mastermind of this attack. Later, Swamy Aseemanand mentioned that he was physically and mentally pressurized to make that statement.
Last month, Times Now reported that a Pakistani national Ajmat Ali, who was a suspect in this case, was discharged within 14 days. Times Now has now broken another chilling tape, wherein SIMI member Safdar Nagori confesses that it was SIMI that was behind these attacks. The chief target of their operation was BJP patriarch LK Advani.
Despite having this knowledge, why was the UPA government so keen on absolving Pakistan and their terror organizations? Why were they so desperate on planting the saffron terror theory?
One, this was a golden chance to defame the RSS (and thereby the BJP) of being a terrorist organization. The second objective was to win the heart of the Indian Muslims. While there is no question that there are many patriotic and liberal Muslims in India, it is a sad fact that most terrorists in the world are Muslims and this is leading to the entire community being typecast. Now, here was one government that was saying with conviction that while terror has no religion, there is certainly the existence of Hindu or saffron terror.
A similar thing happened earlier in 2006 during the Malegaon blasts, where initial indications were towards Islamist organizations and then suddenly, the blame was placed on Abhinav Bharat and Sadhvi Pragya was arrested. While there has been no proof against her, she was arrested and tortured by the Maharashtra ATS because the bomb was placed in a bike that she once owned.
Rahul Gandhi, the eternal crown prince of the Congress Party, who can’t even write a condolence message without referring to his phone, was not to be left behind and took the saffron terror theory outside India.
As per Wikileaks cables, Rahul Gandhi told US ambassador Timothy Roamer that radicalized Hindu groups pose a bigger threat to India as compared to radical Islamist Pakistani groups.
Rahul Gandhi went on to say that although there are evidences of some radical youth joining LeT, the number of youth joining radical Hindu organizations are more and hence this is a bigger threat to the country.
Rahul Gandhi ji, the biggest threat to our country is the Congress and the co-called secular parties, who can even go to the extent of supporting Pakistan and its terror organizations to gain a few votes and tarnish the image of the RSS. It is your party member who provoked the Hindus by openly slaughtering a cow in Kerala. It is your party member who was present in the RSS ki saazish book launch despite there being no doubt that it was the LeT who had all along planned the 26/11 attack. We must thank our stars that Ajmal Kasab was caught alive, else the Congress would have made us believe that 26/11 was also an instance of saffron terror.
It was your party, Rahul Gandhi, that indulged in multi crore scams like 2G, Coalgate, Augusta Westland, Commonwealth and a bunch of others. It was your father, who was involved in the Bofors scam that continues to shake the nation. It was your mother, who cried bitterly when JeM terrorists were killed in the Batla House encounter. It was your grandmother who forced the emergency on the country, thereby threatening democracy. It was the policies of your party that is responsible for the perennial problem in Kashmir and it was your ally NC that was responsible for the ethnic cleansing of Kashmiri Pandits. One can go on and on about the various misdeeds committed by your family and by your party.
To conclude, although secularism is supposed to be the biggest asset of the Congress party, the reality is altogether different. The Congress is the most communal party in the country and its core principles are based on dividing the people of the country based of caste and religion. It is because of the policies of the Congress, along with the other secular parties, that the Hindus today are second class citizens in their own country. One only hopes that the dream of a Congress Mukth Bharat is realized soon and the one entity that has destroyed the nation is wiped out completely.
