About Hinduism and India

Pakistan has acted as per prepared script in handling Sarabjit Episode. This rustic Indian national was arrested during the prime of his youth, tried, convicted and kept in jail for 23 long years. He was not shown any consideration in spite of mercy appeals from his family, prolonged negotiations and diplomatic pressures from Indian Government or International Charter of Human Rights. Finally he was tortured, assaulted and killed inside a well protected Pakistani jail.

A mock hospitalization and end also were enacted to the precession. The family was allowed to communicate if possible, with the brain dead Sarbjit lying in coma on ventilator. All pleas to allow his treatment in India or in some other neutral country having better medical facilities were rejected without any reason. As was expected, he was declared dead.

Thereafter Pakistan Government has posed ‘gracious’ to provide special plane to transport the dead body to India where Indian Government awaited to accord state funeral to the martyr as a face saving.

The first question that strikes is – if Pakistan government could provide a special plane to transport dead body of Sarbjit to India why close relatives were not allowed to evacuate him to India for treatment when he was still alive?

Timidity of Indian Government

While Pakistan played her role as per script, Indian Government has been playing her part extempore in a directionless manner. Pakistan has been returning mutilated bodies of our soldiers in violation of Geneva conventions. The torturous treatment meted out to Capt Saurabh Kalia is still fresh. Returning headless body of Hemraj and several untraceable Indians reported to be languishing in Pakistani Jails are some of the incidents are enough to shame timidity and ineffectiveness of Indian Government.

Under pressure from Pakistan we have been releasing notorious terrorists; we were scared to hang openly convicted criminals like Kasab and Afzal, and they were accorded VIP hospitality in Indian jails. We carried bagful of evidence everywhere to demand suspected terrorists from Pakistan and got nothing in return except snubs. We lump insult every time and everywhere. Today we are friendless on the globe! 

Our Blindness towards Options

We have always been scared to exercise Military option that most of the other Nations follow to save their honor. Since we claim to be Gandhians, Israel model has never interested us. As we proclaim to be peace loving, we lay at the mercy of hostile nations. Over the years all the neighboring countries around us, big and small, such as China, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Myanmar or Bangladesh have been encroaching and pinching upon us to dictate their terms. We are helpless!

Why we couldn’t exercise pressure on Pakistan by:-

  • Denying status of Most Favored Nation to Pakistan?
  • Denying visa to Pakistani nationals to visit India for any purpose?
  • Stopping exchange of cricket teams, artists and other social visits?
  • Scrapping of Samjhota Express and Aman Setu type projects?

Why are we always longing for friendship with Pakistan?

Appeasement in lieu of honor

In order to wipe the stigma of incredulous acts of commission and omissions, our Government is now working to silence public outcry and win over the aggrieved family of Sarbjit by offering sops in the form of financial benefits. The first such step is the announcement of ‘State funeral’ to Sarbjit.

With utmost sympathy with the family and due respect to late Sarbjit, the matter deserves to be considered dispassionately. State funeral is accorded to those persons who die performing some outstanding national duty. Was Sarbjit performing any national duty? If the answer is no, then certainly such honors should not be used for political ends. If the answer is ‘yes’, the Government will incur liability to explain the nature of duty.

Pakistan has humiliated not only Sarbjit, but India and humanity once more!

    Dear Chandsharma ji,

    Totally agree with your views and it is a shame our Govt is acting in way
    it does for Vote Bank Politics to win Elections and the Country’s son in
    law caand the Country’s son in law calls our nation ” Banana Republic” and the PM in waiting is ashamed to
    call himself as an Indian.

    If these type people are in Power such humiliations will only continue and
    the only way is to boot out this Govt and bring in a Govt which would
    restore our Country’s glory.

    Best Regards

  2. Sir,
    I totally empathize with your emotions. However, we need to look at it from the top. We need to know who is really playing this game and we should not get played in the hands of the players. We need to analyse that who would benefit the most if the tension prevails in the subcontinent. What happened to Sarabjit or Sanaullah is wrong, but more importantly, we need to act cool-mindedly and not fuel the fire of rage, it won’t benefit either of us.

    Read my blog and see if I’m making any sense to you.

    • I agree with your view point. Certainly powers that created partition of India are more benefitted from the tensions and hostility between India and Pakistan. However whatever had been carved shall have to exist, unless subsequently created Pakistan not only merges back to India and discards hostile approach towards Hindus in India. Otherwise, Pakistan and India can co-exist on their sides of the wall without being friendly or hostile to eachother. Well such thing appear to be miraculous today.

      My current writeup was more against Indian Government that has failed to cope with realities.
      I shall certainly visit your blog and suggest you to go through the Splashes of Hindu Mahasagar write ups to impartially see for yourself, how secular and human Hinduism is. It is certainly not anti islamic.

      Best wishes to you.

      • Sir we do not have to love each other or hate each other, we can just respect each other and do what ever is best in our interests. We can either choose to live with peace and trade each others comodities, intellect and culture; Or we can choose to be a part of a conspiracy and let the powerful hands exploit our economy and become a client of their weapons industry by engaging into regional tension. Totally our choice. Best regards
