(Organiser, 15.12.2013); A British office mandarin said—“It is not the other side you need to worry about but your own.” Yes! that applies aptly to the present conditions prevailing in Bharat. One need not look outside but inside our own country where homegrown mujahedin is making its presence and gaining day by day strength to mock at our inability to tackle terrorism and yieding to minority Muslims resorting to blackmail tactics by saying that they will support the UPA only if the Government fulfills their demands in the next few months. A Government which has held on to power for a decade has brought the country to the brink of disaster; where neglected poor and middle class voice is no longer heard nor matters; where the bureaucrats who are supposed to be efficient and impartial have utterly failed in advising and guiding, all because of a puppet PM, madam and prince are holding the reins, while it is so who has the courage to defy? Confidence in the above trio is at a low and backing. Narendra Modi is our best bet. Only Narendra Modi as PM can check the terrorist outfit IM: Which has already to its (dis) credit a history of violence and is now turning as Kamath says (in the December 15 issue of Organiser) its killer eyes south words. When, where, how, terror will be unleashed no one knows, for our intelligence system is a disaster and even warnings went unheeded as it happened in Mumbai. Where is the time for our Prime Minister to tackle these internal problems.

CommunalismSupreme Court has already clarified that Hinduism or Hindutva is Bharat’s lifestyle and is not only limited to the lifestyle of Hindus and their customs. Still when one speaks in favour of Hinduism , he is called communal by the very same parties that are themselves communal under the grab of being non-communal. One can see the policy of the Central Government trying to save Muslim criminals. Recently the Centre has asked various states to find out about Muslims in various jails who for a long time are in judicial custody without any offence. Why only Muslims? Why not everyone irrespective of religion? Pragya Sadhvi has been languishing in jail and has not been released even after STF has found no charge against her. In view of the above, you can decide yourself as to who is communal.

Organiser 26.1.2014 This refers to ‘Culture is Nation’ by Prabhakar Deshpande, and ‘Is it Secularism’, by Dr MK Bhat in Organiser. Shri Deshpande says that culture is composed of language, religion, food, dress, habits and ways of life. Dr Bhat has defined secularism. I originally come from Pakistan. I realise, that except religion, there were so many things common between the Hindus and Muslims there. Now as citizen of India, there are very few common things between us and the people living in say Tamil Nadu. But we are citizens of the same motherland Bharat because of common religion. This is a historical fact, that India was divided purely on the basis of religion in 1947, giving separate homeland to the Muslims, called Pakistan. There was absolutely no other consideration as it would be clear from the various documents also. This truncated India is one nation and one country due to combined majority population of Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists and Jains. The Muslim majority regions were given to Pakistan, with clear cut and full agreement in principle by Nehru and Congress leadership. The real problem is that Gandhi and Nehru accepted Pakistan for the Muslims, but cheated the Hindus, Sikhs, Jains and Buddhists, and converted our homeland in to a Dharamshala or an inn. On January 26, 1950, they prohibited Hindus, Sikhs, Jains, Buddhists refugees from coming from Pakistan to India by Article-6 of the Constituion, and gave citizenship to all the Muslims (Pakistanis) living in India, who had got their seperate homeland and who expelled almost entire Hindus and Sikhs etc. from Pakistan in a most cruel manner.

Energy crisis of IndiaPrime Minister Shri Manmohan Singh has stated in the recent held ‘Petrotech 2014’ conference in New Delhi that adequate supply of energy at affordable prices is critical to our economic growth. But how is it possible when India is importing 80 per cent of the oil needs for energy, which is costing our taxes, despite India possessing a huge potentiality of various resources of energy such as solar, wind hydel power etc., which perhaps very few countries in the world have it. We are still dependent on imports at large and not completely utilising these resources. In this connection, why is it that Gobar Gas not developed and promoted and made as commercial commodity, which will go in a big way in fulfilling our energy needs and also providing rural employment. We need to explore all avenues and options to make ourselves self sufficient in our requirements.

Anti-Sikh riotsIt is the call of the time that a SIT must be institute for 1984 anti-Sikh riots to expose those who engineered these riots and punish them accordingly. Analogically it is also important to reveal the forces who caused anti-Hindu riots in Punjab in pre-1984 era and till date the victims have remained unmentioned, unaccounted, uncompensated and unrepresented in any form.

Double standard of Congress The Congress and other secular parties always adopt double standards whenever a communal riot takes place in the country. If the disturbances occur in a Congress/SP-BSP ruled State, the concerned Government is not held responsible for the riots. Examples in the context are, Ahmedabad (mid-Sept 1969), Anti-Sikh riots (Delhi 1984) and the latest one Muzaffarnagar (2013). However, for the Godhra riots of February/March 2002, the Gujarat C M Narendra Modi is held fully accountable and for the last 12 years, is being incessantly hounded by the secular brigade, till date
