It so happened one fine day, back in the year 2001, that five people thought that they needed to destroy the Indian Parliament and kill the legislators. They drove in a white Ambassador inside the Parliament House and attacked the building, killing six Delhi Police personnel, two people from the Parliament Security Service and a gardener.
The five Pakistanis wanted to completely destroy the political establishment of India. Well, Indian politics has always been a subject of tremendous outrage among its citizens and though we really feel sometimes that our country was much better without our politicians, we Indians and those Pakistanis didn’t have the same vision of righteousness. But more on the comparative side of the argument later. Of the four people accused after extensive investigations, one named Mohammad Afzal Guru was recently sentenced to death.
The first two paragraphs of this article have the same kind of constituents as any other news piece and shouldn’t concern normal fun loving people. But here is a twist to the tale.
On 9th February 2016 an event was organized in the Jawaharlal Nehru University campus where the students, who were of course Indians, shouted some slogans. Well, they were exercising their rights which included the freedom of expression when they chanted:
‘Hum Kya Chahte hain?…. Azaadi!’
We all want freedom, don’t we? But our idea of freedom isn’t even close to theirs. Apparently, the students of JNU understand freedom as the right to destroy important government buildings and kill people. The next verses of their slogans were:
‘Afzal tera khoon se… Inquilab ayega
Afzal hum sharminda hain… tere katil zinda hai’
So this is a matter of shame for some Indian students that a Pakistani terrorist has been sentenced to death. The same terrorist who had the motive of destroying the country which provides these very students the ‘freedom of expression’, which, by the way, they were exercising. These students who pay a rent of 11 rupees per month (yes, you read that right) for their stay in the government subsidised JNU hostel and pay fees of Rs. 219 per year, payable in 2 instalments, felt the need to make their voices heard in support of anti-national forces. The government spends approximately three and a half lakh rupees from the tax-payers’ money for educating each of these traitors of the country. We, the people of India pay for these pseudo intellectual anti nationalists so that they can have the balls to shout openly the following slogans:
‘Bharat tere tukde honge… Insha Allah’ and ‘Bharat ki barbadi tak… Jung rahegi’
This is serious. This isn’t just another controversy to be pressed down by passing the buck. This is our country that these mindless misfits have taken out slogans against. While Rahul Gandhi and Arvind Kejriwal indulge themselves in an attempt to politically slam the BJP, an educated minister (no, I don’t consider either Gandhi or Kejriwal to be educated. The second guy is an engineer from an IIT, come on!) Sitaram Yechuri drew parallels between this situation and the Emergency.
This is to all the Netas from a passionate journalist: Play the blame game because that gives us stories to do. But do not forget that your actual job is to serve India. Just for the sake of slamming your oppositions, do not say anything and everything that comes into your minds (I pretty much doubt whether you have any).
How can a member of the Parliament (Rahul Gandhi) who sleeps during his duty and speaks sentences like ‘This morning I woke up at night!’ go to JNU and to gain popularity among youngsters say ‘Why were Indian students not allowed to say what they feel and fight for what they believe?’
This Gandhi chap has perhaps taken the patience of Indian citizens for granted. You know, Pappu, what those students believe in? They believe in the destruction of India. We pretty much understand that even you believe in the same, observing the last 10 years of your party’s rule in the country.
