This refers to the article ‘Romeo Dujan meets his fate’ by Deepak Zazia in Organiser dated August 13.Abu Dujana’s killing by the Indian security forces in Kashmir is a major blow to the militant outfits in the Valley. The Modi regime’s determination has strengthened the hands of the Indian armed forces who have launched an all-out offensive against the militants in Jammu and Kashmir, regardless of the outbreak of engineered protests in parts of the State against the move and obstacles placed by vested elements who seek to obstruct anti-terror operations by using stone-pelters. More than 85 of the 117 terrorists eliminated in the Kashmir Valley so far this year came from Pakistan or Pakistan occupied Kashmir. The Government , the security agencies and our Armed Forces must keep up the momentum and target more high profile names.

Gau Rakshaks too became victims
This refers to the report titled ‘Conspiracy to malign Gau Rakshaks’ in the News Round-up page of Organiser dated July 16.It is worth noting, as mentioned that “Cow killers have carried out over 120 deadly attacks on Gau Rakshaks. They even attacked the Police. No media is talking about those incidents.”Many people praise Gandhi for his commitment and devotion for the cows. They either do not know the truth or speak lies. Gandhi simply played the drama of cow protection to create followers amongst the Hindus and befool them. After August 15 Gandhi received lakhs of letters and thousands of telegrams to ban cow slaughter. Gandhi castigated the Hindus and in his prayer speech of November 4th,1947, he opposed ban on cow slaughter and said , “ Was union( i.e. India ) to be theocratic state and were tenets of Hindus to be imposed on non-Hindus? He ( i.e. Gandhi )yielded to none in his devoted worship of the cow, but that devotion could not be imposed by law.”( See page 139 – 40 of Delhi Diary).One can see , how bluntly Gandhi twisted his language, nobody had asked, that non-Hindus should be forced to worship cows. Banning cow slaughter does not amount to worship of cows. Gandhi was in a habit of speaking lies and befooling the Hindus. Certainly Gandhi is the root cause for the present situation and promoting cow slaughter fanatics.
Stop Blame Game
The death of infants in a State-run hospital in Gorakhpur is tragic. To top it all the hospital authorities and the oxygen suppliers are playing the blame game. What is sure is that this incident could have been averted if payment dispute between both was solved. Nonetheless, this incident is a reminder about the poor condition of the Government run hospitals. The Yogi Adityanath Government has done well to form a committee headed by the chief secretary Rajiv Kumar to probe the role of the supplier and the cause of disruption in oxygen supply. Meanwhile some hard action is expected to end the outbreak of Japanese Encephalitis. It’s time for our babus to admit that there have been gaps and negligence. They must leave no stone unturned to improve the deplorable condition of Government hospitals which needs urgent reforms.
A Valuable Language
This refers to the article ‘Culture Calling’ by Prof Ramesh C Bhardwaj in Organiser dated August 20. Sanskrit lost its colloquial aspect long back . Once it used to be a language of the elite . With passing time , the medium of conversation became Prakrit. So, people gained knowledge after reading Sanskrit literature but explained it in their mother tongue or other colloquial language. Unfortunately, due to imposed English superiority, we are not giving importance to Sanskrit. Also, it is restricted to some people who are self – proclaimed savants. But hope remains for the knowledge written in Sanskrit language.
Don’t take India for Granted
Apropos the article titled ‘Fair vs Lawfare’ by Brig Anil Gupta in Organiser dated July 30.What is sad is China’s refusal to revert to the status quo and its condition that India must with draw troops to resume talks. As India is committed to the India-Bhutan Friendship Treaty and to protect Bhutan’s borders , it cannot turn a blind eye to Chinese operations at the tri-junction. Though India knows well that a stand-off with China will only aggravate the situation and is not in India’s interest in the long run, China should not take India for granted. China should come to the table to sort out the border question amicably before this escalate into violence.

A Sick Mind
Even as Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi while addressing the 75th anniversary of the Quit India Movement was talking like a statesman giving a clarion call for reviving the spirit of unity of the Freedom Movement days so as to take the country to great heights , Congress President Sonia Gandhi was taking loosely whose sole aim is to criticise the Bharatiya Janata Party and the Government of the day. It would have been better if such politics were left for some other day and not brought to light on a day associated with Mahatma Gandhi. Meanwhile one fails to understand for how long will the Congress keep on glorifying the participation of their ancestors in the Freedom Movement without making any effort to take the lead as an effective Opposition, to play a key role by criticising the policies of the ruling Government in the Parliament. The grand old party must also remember that at the time of the Freedom Movement the Congress was an umbrella organisation encompassing almost everyone in the country. Today the Congress has lost that sheen.
RAMINDER SINGH, Delhi
The grand old party made formidable efforts and jubilations for just one seat on which the Congress president’s lone and soul advisor Ahmed Patel was in the field from both the Houses of the Parliament. Ahmed Patel has played an essential role to fulfil the ambitions of the party to remain relevant. His victory however is likely to frustrate honest and sincere workers of the party who want to reach top positions by sheer merit, hard work, honesty and sincerity which the dynasty will never allow. The Congress Party will lose it’s political relevance in the near future.
