The heckling of Ashutosh Jha : Enough is Enough

Just when one thought it couldn’t get worse, it actually did in the volatile state of Bengal. A BJP student activist, who went to attend the activists injured in the firing that occurred against the protesters of the Urdu imposition in Bengali schools, was not only abducted from the hospital by TMC goons in broad daylight, but also beaten up in the TMC office.

It all began when Ashutosh Jha, a BJP student activist, had visited the injured BJP cadres in the Maniktala ESI hospital situated in Kolkata, last Saturday. As he began to step out of the premises, some TMC workers abducted him in broad daylight and took him to the TMC headquarters, where he was assaulted brutally with sticks and iron rods, even pipes for that matter. The police present at the scene tried to intervene, only to be met with vicious assaults.

This incident was reported by a fellow BJP youth wing leader, Pratyush Singh, who not only rescued him, but also brought him to safety. At present, Ashutosh is admitted in the hospital, and has suffered internal injuries as well, with blood clots around his brain. As of now, the police is yet to register an FIR and is awaiting the medical reports from the hospital.

This incident only confirms the fact: Bengal is now a failed state officially. The fact that such a dastardly incident took place, and no protest or even a police complaint was registered, reeks of the blatant fascism Mamata Bannerjee is actually promoting in her state. If a party’s cadre has this much audacity to openly abduct an opposition activist, beat the hell out of him and get away with it, you know the state is in complete chaos, somewhat on the lines of UP in late 80s.

Mysteriously, no media portal is ready to even talk about this, forget giving a decent coverage. Every mainstream news portal is dead silent on this issue. Not even a month has been over since Umar Khalid of a possible attack on himself, and the entire media swooped down on the Central Government, as if PM Modi had declared Emergency 2.0 and India an unofficial dictator state. Is the time of selective outrage? Ironically, it is BJP, who is labeled fascist!

They say, what Bengal thinks today, India thinks tomorrow. Thankfully India didn’t completely emulate the thought of the communist influenced politics that destroyed this once beautiful state completely, or else it would’ve been worse. We do hope that Ashutosh’s attackers are brought into justice and we humbly request the Central Government to take suo motu cognizance of the issue.

Chittagong Uprising : The lessons it has for Modern India

Chittagong Uprising: What Modern India can learn from them

‘Hain liye Hathiyar Dushman Taak mein Baitha Udhar,
     Aur Ham Taiyyar Liye Hain Seena Liye Apna Idhar,
Khoon Se Khelenge Holi, Gar Watan Mushqil mein Hai,
     Sarfaroshi ki Tamanna, Ab Hamare Dil Mein Hai...’
[‘Armed does the enemy sit, ready to open fire
Ready too are we, our bosoms thrust out to him
With blood we shall play 
Holi, if our nation need us
The desire to make a Sacrifice is in our hearts...’]
[By Bismil Azimabadi, 1921]
   When the reclusive poet from Arrah, Shri Bismil Azimabadi penned these lines down in his magnum opus, the patriotic song, ‘Sarfaroshi ki Tamanna’, in 1921, little did he know that it would be immortalized, by both words and action, in barely 9 years, when a brute force would jolt the British imperialists once again out of their deep slumber.
   This brute force, in one stroke, not only uprooted the British from an eastern port city in the undivided India, but also kept the city independent for full one week, mind you, ONE FULL WEEK! 12 days after Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi broke the arbitrary Salt Law, this brute force, in the dark hours of the night, attacked the British establishments with the sole purpose of presenting a significant challenge to the British Empire. Inspired by umpteen examples, the force, breaking many set trends and customs, intended to change our history forever.
Sadly, with a concerted effort of scheming politicians, and their coterie of bootlicking, Marxist influenced historians, intellectuals and academicians, they were erased to a significant extent from the history of India, just because they didn’t subscribe to the dominant narrative’s set of ideals. Today, on the 18th April of 2018, i.e. Tuesday, do we revisit the glorious night of the famous Chittagong uprising, the one uprising, which though short lived, had many lessons, which can bring glorious fruits of victory and success in Indian politics and history even today.
 The base of the Chittagong uprising can be traced back to the successful Easter Uprising of Ireland, which took place in 1916, paving way for the ultimate liberation of Ireland from the clutches of the despotic United Kingdom. On a Good Friday, an armed group of more than 400-500 personnel, owing allegiance to the Irish rebellion for independence, attacked Dublin, the capital of Ireland, and seized the key locations, declaring the independence of Ireland from United Kingdom, and the subsequent setup of an Irish republic. Although they were brutally suppressed by the Britishers even after putting up a stiff resistance, the Easter Uprising was a catalyst to the ultimate Irish War of Independence, which culminated in the ultimate independence of Ireland in 1921.
Cut to 1928. Five prisoners of the British jails had just come out after serving the prison sentence, and had returned to their homeland, Bengal. They had learnt a lot about the successful Easter uprising, and were extremely eager to carry the flag of nationalism, that was held aloft at that time by Hindustan Socialist Republican Association in the northern and central India. Having imbibed the right degrees of democratic principles, and an infinite devotion for their own indigenous culture, these five ex detenus, led by one driving force, were ready to wreak havoc on one of the major seats of British establishment in the undivided India, Chittagong.
The catalysts to this uprising, however, came in 1929. In the very beginning of the year, Calcutta witnessed a remarkable All India Congress Committee session [the same session which Bhagat Singh and Bhagwati Charan Vohra had attended incognito]. Led by firebrand Congressman, the Congress volunteers, instead of the usual khadi, were dressed in immaculate khaki, almost in the colors of the British Army.
  Netaji, who was himself dressed in the clothes of a British general, led the parade of Congress Volunteers with such aplomb and discipline, that even Motilal Nehru couldn’t help himself admiring, though this greatly displeased Gandhi, who did not want to be associated with any form of assertive nationalism. Little did Gandhi, that Congress Volunteers was in fact an underground force, modeled on the likes of the workers of RSS and Hindu Mahasabha in Maharashtra, who would conduct surprise raids on British establishments, patronized by Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose himself.
The other incident was the death of Jatindra Nath Das, a diehard revolutionary and an important member of the Bhagat Singh fame HSRA, who had assisted in making the bombs for the Legislative Assembly bombing case. A major in the Congress volunteers, he was a darling of the Bengali youth [much more competent and manly than today’s denizens of Bengal], and caused a furore with his hunger strike unto death. The youth of Bengal was searing in rage, waiting for an opportune moment to take revenge from the British for such a callous act. That was the spark needed for igniting the uprising that took place in Chittagong. Maybe the immortal quote of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, who was like a Godfather to this uprising, can describe their feelings well:-
‘Forget not that the greatest curse for a man is that to remain a slave,
       Forget not that the most gross of the crimes is to compromise with the injustice and the wrong.’
Now back to those ex detenus. They were ex members of the underground revolutionary societies, Jugantar and Anushilan Samiti. They had professions, which were generally associated with the working class or the middle class. None of them were stinking rich, and yet, they had such charisma, that had most of them lived to see India free, including the leader, they would have been awesome management professors in IIMs or excellent teachers of science at the IITs itself.  Following were the ex detenus:-
·         Surjya Kumar Sen, affectionately known as ‘Masterda’, a schoolteacher with exemplary management and leadership skills, with a sound insight into guerrilla warfare, disillusioned by the Gandhian approach to independence. The official ‘Sarbhadinyaka’ or the General in Command of the Indian Republican Army.
·         Ambika Chakraborty, the oldest member of the Indian Republican Army. The brains behind the whole Chittagong uprising
·         Ananta Lal Singh, a Punjabi migrant, an ex Non Cooperation Movement participant, and the physical instructor at the Sadarghat Physical Club, Chittagong, one of the training centers for the Chittagong uprising. A muscleman with darn good physical strength, who could bend iron rods as easily as thin wires.
·         Nirmal Sen, a close colleague of Surjya Kumar Sen, and alumni of Chattogram College. An elder brother like figure to the members of the Indian Republican Army.
·         Ganesh Ghosh, an ex Congressman, and an accountant cum trader, who handled the finances of the Indian Republican Army.
·         Tarakeshwar Dastidar, final year B.Sc. student at Chattogram College, and the force behind the arms and ammunition of IRA.
      But destiny had written something else for them. Inspired by the Easter Uprising of 1916, these five ex detenus decided to stage one of their own in Chittagong. They got immediate support from devoted college students like Lokenath Bal, Ram Krishna Biswas, Badal Gupta, Lal Mohan Sen, Naresh Roy, Bidhu Bhattacharjee, Binod Bihari Chaudhury as the list went on. These students were not only high on the nationalist principles, but also sported a healthy mix of liberal values and conservation of indigenous culture. However, they needed to make sure, that whatever be the outcome, their plans wouldn’t come to the notice of the British forces. Here, the central leadership, comprising the five ex detenus chalked out a plan that is considered an outstanding example of concentrated management and sound military administration:-
·         The Army would comprise students, ranging from mere teenagers, to young adults, who were the last people the British would suspect upon. Students like Subodh Roy, Harigopal ‘Tegra’ Bal, Ananda Prasad Gupta, Manoranjan Sengupta, Apoorva Sen etc. became immortal revolutionaries through this search.
·         These students would be admitted into the Army, only after a thorough examination would be conducted of the same, on the basis of merit, physical strength, and oath of secrecy.
·         Such students would be further divided into small groups, on the basis of their efficiency and merit, and would be assigned tasks as per their abilities. No two people of different groups would know about the same idea.
·         Only the central leadership knew about the entire plan. This was a huge advantage for the IRA, as if any soldier student was caught, he / she would know only about the task assigned, and would at the worst, divulge only the same. The main plan would be completely unaffected.
·         Since Muslims were loyal British subjects, special spies would be selected amongst them to keep an eye on the British movements, since British wouldn’t even think of suspecting them. Student revolutionaries like Nawab Mincha, Dalil Rehman, Afsar ud Din Mir Ahmad Ali etc. devoted themselves to this cause, rising above religion and creed to protect their motherland.
This was not all. The Indian Republican Army also included in a first for itself, active women revolutionaries, who though were trained separately, was as enthusiastic about the project as the male counterparts. By January 1930, the main plan was laid out. Following were the salient features of the Chittagong Uprising plan:-
·         At 9:50 p.m., the first team led by Lalmohan Sen would break apart the Nangalkote Railway Line that connected Calcutta to Chittagong. This would prevent a rescue force arriving for the British any soon.
·         At 9:55 p.m., a team led by Calcutta University student Pritilata Waddedar and Ambika Chakraborty would raid the Telegram and Telephone Lines Headquarters, cutting off any communication available to the British establishments.
·         At 9:55 p.m., another team, led by Masterda, Ananta and Ganesh would raid the Police Lines at Dampara, which would provide the Army with unlimited Enfield Matchlock muskets, revolvers, pistols, cartridges etc.
·         At 10:00 p.m., a team led by Naresh Ray would attack the European Club at Pahartali, and keep the British hostage till the action is complete, and exact some revenge for Jallianwala Bagh itself.
·         At 10:00 p.m., another team, led by Nirmal Sen and Lokenath Bal would raid the Auxiliary Forces of India Armoury, which housed modern weapons like the Vickers Light Machine Guns, Lewis Sub Automatic Machine Guns, Lee – Enfield .303 Bolt Action Rifles etc.
·         After this phase was over, another set of revolutionaries would disperse around the city, distributing pamphlets, enlightening people of the struggle.
·         The teams would then proceed to liberating Imperial Bank, raid the ammunition stores, and break open Chittagong Jail.
·         By the next morning, Chittagong would be a free town, free from British rule.
The day chosen was 18th of April. However, it was the very day, when everything changed forever.
The day was spent in the revolutionaries organizing themselves for the revolution to be carried out, while the British were blissfully unaware of the simmering revolution that would soon sweep them off. By 8 ‘o’ clock in evening, everyone was in action.  However, the scene was soon to change.
By 10:00 p.m., the teams at the Railway Line, Telegraph Office, and the Police Lines were highly successful, without any casualty. However, when the boys turned up at the European Club, they were in for a rude shock. Since the day was a Good Friday, the Britishers had left early, which meant that sooner or later, the British would’ve known about it.
At AFI Armoury, there was a mixed episode. The revolutionaries had taken over the armoury, though at the expense of Sergeant Major W. Farrell, who had to suffer for his over enthusiasm in discovering the issue. Although they broke open the armoury, to their surprise, there was little ammunition for the .303 rifles, and no ammunition at all for the machine guns. The revolutionaries now had some measly .303 rifles, and umpteen muskets and revolvers, though they were no match for the machine guns that the British possessed.
After having a showdown with the British magistrate Wilkinson and his assistants, paramilitary Assam Rifles regiment Captain Taitt and DIG Chittagong, Charles A. Farmer, who had to run for their lives, when they were responded with bullets, the revolutionaries reluctantly burned down the whole armory. The remaining British personnel then escaped with their families to the nearest steamers docked a few miles from Chittagong port, while the revolutionaries assembled at the Police Lines Reserve.
When Surjya Sen was informed of the situation, he knew that even though Chittagong was liberated, they were ill equipped to sustain the independence. After a memorable speech by Masterda, a provisional revolutionary government was declared, and the Congress tricolor was hoisted, bringing down the Union Jack. A triple gun salute was given in memory of the fallen, while Surjya Sen received a guard of honor.
However, the ill fate did not end there. While evacuating the premises, a revolutionary, Himangshu Sen, had soaked his clothes with petrol while sprinkling the same on the empty armoury. As soon as he lit the armoury, his own clothes caught fire. In a few seconds, he was reduced to a smothering ball of fire, and although Ananta and Ganesh doused the fire off, he succumbed to his burns a few hours later.
Although the revolutionary had retreated outside the city, Chittagong was liberated for four complete days from the British rule. It took three more days post the battle of Jalalabad Hills, to establish the remaining connectivity with Calcutta. Even though they had partially succeeded, the fact remains, the revolutionaries did succeed in shaking the British rules from the foundations.
What lessons does Chittagong serve in the context of modern India, 87 years after the glorious fight for independence had started that one night? While the exact lessons would be too cumbersome, following is an apt summary:-
·         Fight unto death for your ideals, which is a must today, given the situation in Kashmir
·         Strike at the weakest points, which uproot the evil rule from its roots. The Indians can learn a lot from this Revolution, in context, for their movements to liberate POK, the central India from the clutches of the imperialist terrorists, whether Islamic based or Marxist based.
·         Ideals should be allocated as per the use and the ability, with the main plan been known only to the few. In context of Kulbhushan Jadhav’s release, I hope the Indian government is listening.
·         Don’t forget your roots ever.
But the boys weren’t done yet. Another chapter of their glory was waiting to be penned down……

Bhagat Singh: Once a ‘Terrorist’, Always a ‘Terrorist’ (at least for Congress)

‘Lovers, poets, and lunatics are made of the same stuff’
(Bhagat Singh)
Obviously he was right about the former two, but never did he knew, that the last part would be equally right. Today, as India grapples between nationalism and intellectual terrorism, his image as a ‘terrorist’ is now the hot potato in the media. The issue has cropped up, since Delhi University, in his history curriculum, officially endorses a book, ‘India’s Struggle for Independence (both the original and the translated), written by eminent Marxist schooled historian Bipan Chandra (actually a lunatic, to be precise), which labels unfortunately, the revolutionaries as terrorists and their acts as acts of terrorism. Thankfully, our HRD minister, Smriti Irani took notice of this, once Bhagat Singh’s kith and kin complained of the matter, and ensured that strict action was taken. As of now, this book stands proscribed in the campuses of DU.
Yes, our bravehearts, the revolutionaries who cared two hoots before dealing with the British imperialists in their own style, are equated with the same breed, who don’t think twice before pumping their bullets (and bombs as well) into children as young as two months old. To our shock, a prominent independence activist (sorry, like the Lady from Italy, I can’t take his name, this might offend the Left wing!) has been described as a miraculous person, whereas everyone knows how his lust for power broke more than millenniums old nation apart into two.
Bipan Chandra’s book, ‘India’s Struggle for Independence’, is actually an intake of the modern India from the Gandhian view. The parallel movement of revolutionaries has been accorded a measly mention in Chapter 20, as Bhagat Singh and other revolutionary terrorists. All the revolutionaries, for the lack of better words, have been labeled as ‘revolutionary terrorists’. Whether Bhagat Singh, or Chandra Shekhar Azad, or even Surjya Kumar Sen (aka ‘Masterda’, leader of the famous Chittagong Uprising and victor of the Battle of Jalalabad Hills) for that matter, they have been labeled as ‘terrorists’, and their glorious acts have been downplayed, in the British terms, as acts of terrorism. That reminds me of the famous dialogue in Mel Gibson’s Braveheart, ‘History is written by those, who have hanged heroes’
Is there a difference between revolutionaries and terrorists? Of course there is. As said by Bhagat Singh himself, later recorded in the biography penned by journalist Kuldip Nayar, ‘Without Fear’, a revolutionary ‘attaches great sanctity  to human life, we regard  man’s life as sacred…..He/she would sooner lay down his/ her life in the service of humanity than injure anyone….’
Kuldip Nayar himself later explained the same to the convicts of Arun Sridhar Vaidya, army general’s assassination case, as noted below:-
‘A revolutionary believes in the complete overthrow of any established government or political system that doesn’t give economic equality to the people. In his scheme of things, citizens should be empowered against economic powerlessness and be given individual dignity. On the other hand, a terrorist is motivated by personal revenge against a person in particular, who is a mere instrument in the hands of the despotic rulers. So while, revolutionaries transcend hatred, terrorists are victims of it.’ Well, sadist victims to be precise.
However, if you think, that this is it, you are wrong. A hundred times wrong, mate, for this is only the tip of the iceberg. In fact, the Gandhian faction, who was allegedly hand in glove with the British imperialists, looked at revolutionaries more as a threat, than as a parallel movement? In fact, what ensued after independence is a systematic and intellectual level of defamation of the revolutionaries. What happened in the Bhagat Singh episode is just the tip of the iceberg. Their acts, their skills, were callously forgotten. Thanks to the systematic campaign, we are more likely to hear of the failures of Gandhiji as successes, rather than learn of the actual victories, however small, scored by the Indian revolutionaries. Be it the brutal defeat of the British at Jalalabad Hills near Chittagong, or the daring attack on Writers Building by the Benoy Badal Dinesh troika, these tales were never told.
Worse, the revolutionaries never got the glory they deserved. Many died deplorable deaths. One of the Chittagong Uprising revolutionaries, Lalmohan Sen, fell prey to the Direct Action Day riots instigated in Bengal in 1946 by Mohammad Ali Jinnah. The reliable comrade of Bhagat Singh, Shri Batukeshwar Dutt, died in penury. The INA soldiers, disbanded by the British Army, were never reinstated by the independent governments at all. Worse, some of the idiots, which includes Mani Shanker Aiyer as well, proposed the demolition of the iconic Cellular Jail at Andaman Islands, and proposed a building in memory of Jawahar Lal Nehru instead. Isn’t this intolerance? Of course not, because no paid journalist of the breed of Rajdeep, Burqa Dutt and Sagarika Ghosh will ever report of this. In that context, probably Vinayak Damodar Savarkar had the worst of his times, being labeled as a Hindu fanatic, completely ignoring his contribution to the cause of Indian independence.
If that’s enough for you, let me tell you more of the systematic defamation of the revolutionaries. Anyone even remotely associated with them has been given a communal color, in order to mislead the masses of today. What better than that of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh. Its founder, Dr. Keshavrao Baligram Hegdewar, was a regular contributor of the revolutionary HRA, so much that he adopted its constitution, traces of which are still found in its ideology today. How is he known as today? As a Hindu zealot, who supported the British? Really? What were the pseudo seculars thinking of, when they wrote this? I would, for once, like to know.

What happened with Bhagat Singh recently is certainly deplorable, and condemnable in the worst way possible. However, if we don’t act the way Smriti Irani, probably a time would come, when His Highness, Rahul Gandhi, shall proclaim, that Bhagat Singh was a predecessor of Hafiz Saeed, just to appease the vote bank politics. The game has just begun. It’s for us Indians, to give a smart and happy ending to it.

An Open Letter to Shobhaa De

Shobhaa De just shut up!
         A failed model, a hypocrite of outstanding merit, a sickular to the core, a hardcore pessimist, who hates anything that is pro India, a writer whose novels are literally bombastic (and bloody complex), ridiculously nicknamed by sycophants as the ‘Jackie Collins of India’. That’s Shobhaa De for you, and this is an open letter to the intellectual terrorist, who has just crossed her limits by body shaming our recent guest, Princess Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge. This is an open letter to her. Let her respond, if she has the guts to!
Dear De,
          I can’t use any term of respect, because you have none in my eyes. You are a barefaced liar, a coward and a hypocrite, who just wants to stay in limelight. I knew, even as a na├»ve child, that the socialites are selfish. However, you have crossed all limits by insulting a guest who has just visited India, on an apparent political visit. I’m not distressed by the fact that she is the Princess of a nation that enslaved us for almost two centuries. I’m not a sycophant of any political party either. This is a condemnation in my capacity as a patriotic citizen, who holds his nation above anything else.
         You were an eyesore for the sane Indians, no doubt, with your irritating comments and tweets. Technically, we should ignore you as well. But you have attacked our foundations, by insulting a guest, who bore no harm. ‘Atitihi Devo Bhavah’, right? Then how did you say that “Her waist is perfect for crinoline ball gowns from “Gone with the Wind”. But a saree needs curves. A saree demands a derriere. Kate has none. Thank God, some misguided fashion guru has spared her and us so far.” In whose name are you given the right of commenting on the dressing sense of a woman, being a woman yourself? Isn’t this body shaming? You, of all things, being a woman yourself, say that?

       The controversial paper, Times of India, has already made a laughing stock of our intellect by showing Princess Kate in an apparently uncomfortable position. Now, you comment on whether she looks good in a sari or not? Have you no shame? You had already made a mockery of yourself on issues of intolerance. But this is too much. You leave a bad impression on our, as well as their minds. I hope you know that.
       You’re a hypocrite of the first rate, which is well known. The way you were dying of having the beef ban removed was more of laughable than concern. ‘I have eaten beef. Come murder me’ was what you boldly declared, knowing very well that the community who would apparently be offended, would do nothing at all. It’s not tolerance on our part, Miss De, it’s prudence for us. Who would want to waste his / her time in teaching you a lesson? I wonder if it would have been the same reaction had you substituted beef with pork, something that the ‘peaceful’ religion abhors.
       When the intolerance issue cropped up, you were more than happy. You were elated, for there was a flimsy issue which you milk upon, and accuse the PM of it. You are a well known pessimist, you find faults even in biopics which are quite sensible (Didn’t you roast Farhan Akhtar for Bhaag Milkha Bhaag?). That’s still okay. It makes for a good joke book. However, the time you actually crossed the line, was not once, but twice now.
   Once you did it on the JNU issue, where you tried to paint the seditionist students as victims of government oppression, just as an intellectual terrorist of your breed would do. What the British monsters did a century ago, you’re doing the same again and again. Saying, I stand with JNU, especially when their students cry ‘Bharat Tere Tukde Honge Inshallah, Inshallah’, is an insult, an open insult, to those brave martyrs, who sacrifice their lives for this nation. For you, soldiers’ job is to die, and speak nothing, eh?
    Not now, Miss De, not now. We are proud of Captain Pawan Kumar and other Pampore bravehearts, we are proud of Lt.Col. Niranjan Upadhyay and other Pathankot martyrs, we are proud of Lance Naik Hanumanthappa and his Siachen squad, for fighting for our homeland, and ashamed of you. Yes, we are ashamed of you. You can’t be an Indian, you just can’t be. You can be a terrorist, but not an Indian.
     You weep for those who want to destroy India, like that moron Kanhaiya Kumar. Where were your tears, when an Indian farmer was brutally murdered in Kot Lakhpat Jail, Lahore, after an agonizing and unjust captivity of 23 years? Yes, I’m talking about Sarabjit Singh, the unfortunate farmer who was wrongly accused of organizing the 1990 Lahore blasts. None of you wept for him. He wasn’t Mohammed Akhlaque, right? Same goes for the victims of 1990 Kashmir & 1984 Delhi Genocides. Where were your tears, then?
       Today, as you crossed all limits, in insulting a visiting dignitary, let me remind you, that might come a time, when you shall be despised by all, and get an ostracism worse than that of Judas, the one who betrayed Jesus. After all, I’m a Sanghi, and I don’t know anything, isn’t it?
Never faithfully yours, but Faithfully for India,

A Deshbhakt

The Philosophy of the Bhakt

The Philosophy of the Bhakt: A True Indian
[Since 16 May 2014, the Indian intelligentsia, comprising of boot licking writers (exceptions are always there), Gandhi and Nehru praising journalists (Rajdeep Sardesai and Burqa Dutt, do read this), Congress sycophants etc. are finding one or the other way to stall the smooth run of development brought by our PM Narendra Modi, almost like the way Mahatma Gandhi did with the revolutionaries, so that we did not get independence quickly. In response to their mockery of the admirers of Modi’s policies, and their constant taunting as ‘Modi bhakts’, this article, a long one, based on a revolutionary Bhagwati Charan Vohra’s befitting and outstanding reply to Mahatma Gandhi’s criticism of theirs, is written by an agitated bhakt, out to expose them (the intellectual terrorist mafia)]
‘Agar Hum Khud Ko Koste Rahenge, To Aage Kaise Badhenge?’ (If we don’t stop criticizing ourselves, how will we progress?
Narendra Modi, in his address to Singapore City, November 2015
    Recent events, particularly THE CONGRESS’ attempts to stall the passing of the much needed GST bill, and their unblemished support for the seditionist students of Jawahar Lal Nehru University (they hailed Afzal Guru as a Martyr and threatened to cut India into pieces, and pledged to destroy India for the freedom of Kashmir) subsequent writings and views in various dailies and celluloid media, clearly show that the Indian National Congress, now Congress (Indira), in conjunction with Sonia & Rahul Gandhi (seriously, how can India be called intolerant when we can tolerate someone like Pappu?) has launched a crusade against the Indian citizens, particularly the admirers of our honorable PM Narendra Modi’s pro development policies, or what these morons call us as ‘Bhakts’. A huge amount of public criticism, both from the press and the platform, has been made against us. We, the deshbhakts, do not shun criticism, as has been portrayed by these sickulars and Adarsh Liberals. We rather welcome these chances of making those understand, who have a genuine desire to do so, and who want to see India back as the world teacher (Vishwa Guru), the basic principles of being a desh bhakt and the high and noble ideals that a perennial and indestructible source of inspiration and strength to it. We hope that this article will help the general public, and the lovely and inspiring social media, to know the Bhakts (or Desh Bhakts), as we are and will prevent it from taking them for granted.
LET us, first of all, take up the question of pseudo intellectuals and true intellectuals. We as Deshbhakts think that the use of these terms in itself is a grave injustice to either party, for they express the ideals of neither of them correctly. Actually, True Intellectuals are those who by the force of reason try to bring about change in the society they live in, which is not what pseudo intellectuals stand for. On the other hand, what generally goes by the name of pseudo intellectualism is actually intellectual terrorism. Terrorism that doesn’t run on the power of the bullet, but that of the power of the pen and the media, whether internet or television. Intellectual terrorists are those that lick the boots of the tyrants (democratically autocratic like the Nehru Gandhi clan), stay mum on their hypocritical and tyrant acts (1984 Sikh Riots and 1990 Kashmiri Genocides are the best examples), but cry crocodile tears on some of the frustrated retaliation by the forces that care for the nation (I don’t support the Dadri incident, and the murder of the rationalists, but certainly scapegoating Narendra Modi and BJP Governments is too much) The very intellectuals would never open their mouths on dastardly massacres like 1984 Sikh Riots, 1990 Kashmiri Holocaust, 1992 Bombay (Mumbai came in 1995) Hindu Muslim Riots, 2002 Godhra Carnage & Consequent Riots, 26/11, or even the horrifying gang rape of Nirbhaya on the Black Sunday, 16th December 2012. They will not even protest against the forced ouster of writers like Taslima Nasreen, artists like Maqbool Fida Hussain, and hounding of true actors like Kamal Hassan for exposing Wahabi terrorism (not Islamic, as some mistake it to be!), but will cry on the death of terrorists like Osama Bin laden, Ajmal Kasab, even Yakub Memon (I really hated the funeral organized for that man), and make mountains of mole hills of trivial incidents like the shoplifting of a church in Delhi.
Since the time the Award Wapasi Gang and the Pseudo Seculars have scripted their success with bringing in the corrupt and befooling governments in New Delhi and Bihar respectively, we as Bhakts aren’t only perturbed, but also agitated, with their ‘success’. Should the corrupt era of Manmohan Singh stamped, Sonia Gandhi led UPA come back? Should we forget the sacrifices that Lance Naik Hanumanthappa or people like Subhas Chandra Bose, Bhagat Singh, or even Captain Lakshmi Swaminathan had made so that India becomes better ?(Well, some of their efforts are actually bringing fruits)
     THE Deshbhakts, like the revolutionaries, believe that the deliverance of their country will come through revolution, the Inquilab of change. The revolution that we are constantly working and hoping for, will not only express itself in the form of armed annihilation of the intellectual terrorism and its supporters (Here, Bhakts are armed with pens, social media, voice & votes), it will also usher in a new social change. The revolution will ring the death knell of dynasty politics and sickularism (mind you, as secularism means respect for all religions and not privilieges for a few) and intellectual terrorism (Award Wapasi Gang is the best example). It will bring joy and prosperity to the exploited millions (not starving, as black marketeering and hoarding is solely responsible for that) who are seething today under the horrifying and terrible yoke of both foreign terrorism and internal (mostly intellectual) terrorism. It will give the nation a much needed. It will bring the nation into its own. It will give birth to a new state a new social order. Above all, it will establish the rule of the ability, not power and flaunting and will forever banish social parasites from the seat of political power.
Revolutionary Exposure

THE DESHBHAKTS already see the advent of the revolution in the restlessness of youth, in its desire to break free from the social bondage and political corruption that fetter them. As the youth gets more and more educated, it realizes the potential of development. They realize the futility of reservation (whether for depressed classes or any religion) and anything that doesn’t allow them to develop in their own nation. The more they delve into the revolution; the clearer will come the realization of national bondage and a growing, intense, unquenchable thirst for freedom. But what to do with intellectual terrorists? Should we kill them? No way, that will only make them martyrs, and will serve their cause (In this case, Nathuram Godse did the biggest mistake of his life by killing Gandhiji, and so did Kehar Singh and Satwant Singh by killing Indira Gandhi). But we can’t allow them to win either. These intellectual terrorists fear two things: exposure of their black deeds and knowledge to all. Expose them, to the extent, that people spit on the corpses of such people, who tried to destroy our nation. Otherwise, such terrorists become celebrities like Indira Gandhi, Arundhati Roy and more recently, Yakub Memon.
The Idea of INDIA
  A Prominent Intellectual Terrorist, Sagarika Ghosh Achieved a pyrrhic victory (which is more harmful than a loss) Sagarika has returned to the attack in her recent tweet, ‘Hope Sangh Parivar understands there was no concept of 'India' before promulgation of Constitution. British ruled from Burma to Afghanistan We will give it our closest attention before proceeding further. That article consists of three things – her faith, her opinion and her arguments, as the face of Indian intellectual terrorism. We will not discuss what a matter of faith with her is because reason has little belief in common with faith. Let it be reminded, Bloody Mary (that’s her nickname on Twitter), that the idea of India exists from the ages of Indus Valley Civilization, from the times when one scholar, united broken provinces into one, united India, at least two to three thousand years ago.  I suppose Sagarika must've heard of Chanakya! India is existent from ages, whether it was Bharat, or Hindustan. You haven’t got over the British hangover, Bloody Mary, have you?
    These intellectual terrorists, the despicable bootlickers of the Nehru Gandhi dynasty, still believe that the masses are foolish enough to choose the corrupt, sickular leaders over and over again. That might be true for the old school mongers (like the poor folks of Delhi & Bihar), but not for the young brigade of India (JNU ‘seditionist’ gangs being the sole exceptions). Let them not delude themselves on the experiences of success of their latest Goebbelian propaganda.
         Though it’s true, that their incessant imitation of Goebbels’ propaganda has managed to befool the Indian democracy twice, these intellectual terrorists seemed to have forgot the age old quote: -
‘You can fool some people all the time, you can fool all the people for some time, but you can’t fool all the people all the time’
          Unlike what they think, not the whole of India thinks in their lines. Except for the elite rich (especially jokers like Shobhaa De & Karan Johar, I’ll come to them later), an average Indian, despite being plagued by the ever increasing malaise of corruption, reservation, and social roadblocks, believes in the idea of India. His / her heart bleeds when someone, in any corner of India, is hacked to death or martyred (Lance Naik Hanumanthappa and other dudes from Siachen, we really miss you), his / her smile increase manifold, when someone, irrespective of any race, makes India proud (the list is too long to even describe some, sorry for that), and his/her blood boils, when morons like Kanhaiya Kumar , Umar Khalid etc., pledge to destroy India, and liberate Kashmir. Unlike the ‘mai baap’ janta of the 70s, or 80s for that matter, they aren’t to be taken for granted.      
       The scion of intellectual terrorists is hell bent on implementing the Goebbels propaganda. They cry of Fascism on the side of the incumbent PM, Shri Narendra Modi, and yet, follow the principles of Hitler. What is Goebbels propaganda? It is the gospel of lies, with a simple aim: Make a lie so Big, that it’s apparently mistaken for truth. Hasn’t the sickular Khangress being doing that for years, making terrorists out of the nationalist RSS dudes?
       Same was the case with the intolerance. There wasn’t actually any intolerance; the case of Mohammed Akhlaque was merely a case of local anarchy on a flimsy issue. An issue that should’ve been solved quickly by the local police and administration of Bisahda, was totally blown out of proportions by the secular parties, without even looking into the basic fact that defeated their Goebbels assumption: neither Akhlaque possessed meat or beef for that matter, nor was Dadri a specifically BJP ruled bastion.
           These people talk of intolerance on flimsy incidents, but never on true issues. Only a few months ago, in West Bengal’s Malda, a group of Islamic extremists held the city to ransom. For what? For protest against one Kamlesh Tiwari’s remark on Prophet Mohammad? Whether the criticism of Prophet is valid or not is another matter altogether, but what one witnessed was total anarchy. None could stop it, none. Even the concerned politicians (genuinely concerned) were turned back, almost like what happened with Anupam Kher ji recently at Srinagar.
    Reaction on the intellectuals? None. As if they duct taped themselves, no Ravish Kumar took a moral high ground, no Burqa Dutt (I hate calling her Barkha, the name doesn’t suit an intellectual terrorist like her at all) wrote a treatise on how minorities are exploited, like the toilet paper  of ‘This Unquiet Land, no Dibakar Bannerjee and company returned awards, no Arvind Khujliwal (other Kejriwals might be insulted) would issue audio clips condemning Narendra Modi for everything on earth, or for that matter, nothing would be said at all. After all, these guys were doing a noble job, weren’t they?
  THERE MIGHT be those who have no regard for the Intellectual Terrorists and hope nothing from it. If they expect the Deshbhakts to be a part of this company, they’re completely right. Unlike the revolutionaries who respected their arch rivals, the Congress, we have no respect for them. In fact, we have lost our respect for them. Many of them used to be uncompromising individuals, working for the development of our holistic, secular culture. God knows what had happened to their ideals. The best example is Arvind Kejriwal, a crusader for democracy, who is now more of a secular moron than his former self, which even earned him a Ramon Magsaysay Award in 2006. I hope you remember your NGO, Parivartan, sir! Where is that Kejru? We miss him, seriously.
         In the present scenario, where love for one’s country is mocked as a cause detrimental to the freedom of speech and expression, the question arises: can nationalism and freedom of speech and expression go hand in hand? Why not? Nationalism means the innate love for one’s motherland (or fatherland for others), transcending spurious borders of gender, caste, race etc., the very bedrock of freedom and expression. This is the feeling that drives heroes like Lance Naik Hanumanthappa and his troupe to brave the chilling winds of Siachen Glacier, some 19600 feet above sea level. I doubt if these intellectual terrorists, especially the likes of Kanhaiya Kumar & Umar Khalid, can even stay for ten minutes in that area. The answer is simple, never. That’s why our Captain Cool, Mahendra Singh Dhoni rightly pointed out the role of our armed forces in maintaining the spirit of freedom of speech and expression.
    Imagine, had Pakistan won each of the wars they lost, then? Would these intellectual terrorists have had the same level of freedom they claim to cry for? No way. The level of freedom of speech and expression these fundamentalist nations give is exemplified by the fact, that their most badass activist, young Malala Yousufzai, is yet to return to her homeland, the Bangladeshi feminist author Taslima Nasreen is more comfortable in India than in her own homeland.
       Hypocrisy must be proud of herself, on finding the abundance of her relatives in India. The intellectual terrorists, of any standard, are the most hypocrite in the world. They talk of intolerance in cases of local anarchy, while stay mum on the brutal cases which actually cry on intolerance. Don’t believe us? Then let me tell you of a young, 26 year old lab technician, Girija Tickoo, who was the Nirbhaya of her times. What was her crime? Her being a Kashmiri Pandit. The night of 26th June 1990 might not be remembered by many, but it was as ghastly as the night of 16th December 2012, Sunday. Unlike Nirbhaya, who luckily survived for a few days to tell her tale, she was murdered in the most horrifying manner. She was gangraped brutally, cigarette butts dominating the majority, and sliced in two by a mechanical saw. All this for being a Kashmiri Pandit. Reaction? Zero bata nil. None of the intellectuals spoke a word, no Sonia Gandhi or Khangressi politician ever visited that place, or even her relatives. No journalist shed tears for that poor soul. Even today, Girija Tickoo’s perpetrators walk free. Free, and that makes all the difference.
        She is not the only one. Many women, even the Kashmiri Muslims, have faced the same brunt. Who faced the blame? The saviors, the armed forces of India. A joint operation by the intellectual and the physical terrorists to defame the ones protecting our homeland succeeded with the brute force that haunted many patriots for years to come. There might be a few mongers in the army itself, nothing is perfect. But our Indian Army has its own efficient mechanism to deal with. Who are the terrorists to question them?
We, the Deshbhakts, take this opportunity to appeal to the nation, to not fall in the hands of these intellectual terrorists. They have been fooling us for the last 61 years, but not now. At the cusp of an awakening, let them be reminded that India is now the nation which wants to fly, not grovel in the swamp of communism, and sickularism.  Let nobody toy with nation’s freedom which is her very life, by making psychological experiments in non-violence and such other novelties. Our slavery to anything (whether physical or intellectual)  is our shame. When shall we have courage and wisdom enough to be able to shake ourselves free of it? What is our great heritage of civilization and culture worth if we have not enough self-respect left in us to prevent us from bowing surveillance to the commands of foreigners and paying homage to their flag and ideologies?
THERE IS no crime that the secular gang practicing intellectual terrorism hasn’t committed. Deliberate misrule has reduced us to paupers, has ‘bled us white’. As a race and a people we stand dishonored and outraged. Do people still expect us to forget and to forgive? We shall have our revenge – the people’s righteous revenge on the backstabbers. We shall expose these terrorists to such a level, that even their forthcoming generations will detest being the progeny of such morons. Ours is a war, against hypocrisy, against hegemony, against anything that is a roadblock to the progress of our nation, India.
