PAKISTANI troops encroached into the Indian Territory around 600 metres inside at Mendhar area of LoC (Line of Control) in Kashmir. Pak army fired incessantly on the tactical Border Patrolling Team of 8 on the border and killed two army men of 13 Rajputana Rifles, Lance Naik Hemraj and Sudhakar Singh, while injuring two other army men. Pak brutality did not stop at that; the Pak military beheaded both Indian army men mutilating their bodies and also took away the head of one of the Indian army men as a trophy of victory the same way as they have been doing following their barbaric ideology past many centuries.
Sheer inhuman brutality shown by Pakistan in all this can surely be the topic of a greater debate on the ideology guiding them to do all such things. But the issue at this moment here is that of Indian Government’s meek and weak responses in all such previous provocations by Pakistan. Pakistan has been attacking Bharat in many ways – be it 26/11 or umpteen number of border infiltrations through Jammu & Kashmir, Rajasthan, Punjab or through Bangladesh, Nepal, Myanmar, etc. Posting Chinese troops in Pakistan occupied Kashmir is also one such pre-war act planned before impending attack by them. Pak Home Minister Rehman Malik came to Bharat and blamed Bharat for 26/11 Jihadist attack! From Delhi to Varanasi and from Bengaluru to Mumbai, Pak has been found involved in Jihadist terror attacks killing thousands of innocent citizens of Bharat. And now such a brutal inhuman infiltration and attack on our brave army!
Had such a heinous border attack happened in any other country, the Government there would have at least severed all relations with the enemy country. But the problem with our Government is that it has not been accepting that Pakistan is an enemy of Bharat. Despite all overt signs of enmity by Pakistan, Government of India has been busy in the so-called hollow peace talks, cricket, trade relations, giving Most Favoured Nation status to Pakistan for some trade, opening Pakistan banks in Bharat, cultural exchanges, allowing Indian citizens to side with Pakistan’s anti-India campaigner Dr Fai and what not. Indian Government has already lost out in tackling Pakistan on the international diplomatic front and also failed to protect our border forces and thereby our nation. International diplomacy and peace process are the lame excuses to let the enemy country sneak into our land 600 metres inside, beheading our army-men and mutilating their bodies. Government has failed to reign in Pakistan.
Indian Government at least now should sever all ties with Pakistan, get the armed forces consolidated and attack Pakistan to regain all our lost territories. Our armed forces – army, navy and air force – are brave and capable in defeating Pakistan. But vote bank appeasement policy of the Indian Government has been putting Bharat’s safety and security in danger for long now. Other countries including America or China have no right to advise Bharat to keep peace despite Pak’s continued attacks on Bharat in many ways. Indian Government must listen to the advice of the senior sitting and retired security services officers, intelligence officers and plan to once and for all put a stop to Pakistan’s blatant violations of all treaties and international war norms. Instead, Government has been busy jailing Hindus in Bharat, pleasing minority vote bank even by bending to Pakistan and its allies’ pressures. Over 20,000 army / police / Para-military personnel were killed in various cross border and jihadist attacks by Pakistan in Jammu & Kashmir past 10 years. No Human Rights of these people who gave their lives for the nation were ever considered by anyone. Their families have been living a life of hassles and poverty. Yet brave young people have been joining the army but not for getting beheaded like this due to our Government”s weakness! If such feeble behaviour towards Pakistan continues then it would not be long before Akhand Bharat will democratically and bravely stand up to protect itself. The families of the dead should be compensated properly in this incident and the brave-hearts – diseased and injured – should get the highest accolades.
The basic problem with the current Union Government and many state Governments is that they are not confused but are wrongly convinced that only Muslim vote bank can get them win further power. This is because Hindus do not vote as one and also because Muslims do vote almost as one – at least they respond to the socio-political issues as one group with solidarity. Government at Centre as it is has lost all momentum in almost everything, be it economy, social security, safety of the citizens in general and the most dangerous is even in border security. Infighting, indecisiveness, lack of experience in handling complex situations and arrogance of not listening to the wise advice available in Bharat among senior bureaucrats, security personnel and other experts are some of the main reasons of ineffective working of the Government. Reasons whatsoever, Bharat’s common citizens have every right to their safety and nation’s security. Bharat will not tolerate insult of our brave security forces by anyone and Bharat will never let any Government be lenient to Pakistan.
