UPA-Samjhauta-Saeed Nexus Exposed!
|by Dr. Rajinder Puri|
Home Minister Mr. Sushil Kumar Shinde addressing his party’s brainstorming Chintan Shivir at Jaipur almost immediately after Mr. Rahul Gandhi - with impetus of changing the culture and system of India - had been appointed the party’s new Vice-President, declared:
This was a truly extraordinary statement made by the nation’s Home Minister. One is sure that as a cabinet minister he chose his words with care and knew the implications of what he said. He could not be referring to self-defense training which cannot be termed terrorist. Obviously there had to be tangible evidence of RSS and BJP organizationally connected to terrorist acts for Mr. Shinde’s statement to be validated. The first obvious question is why the government has not acted against RSS and BJP if these organizations are promoting terrorism. If Mr. Shinde’s assertion is correct the government’s inaction reveals serious dereliction of duty demanding its dismissal.
That Mr. Shinde was serious was soon confirmed by his cabinet colleague Foreign Minister Mr. Salman Khurshid who told media:
Mr. Khurshid apparently was referring to the reports submitted by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) to the Home Ministry. The Home Secretary Mr. RK Singh said: “Yes, there is evidence. We have names of at least 10 persons involved in the Samjhauta Express, Mecca Masjid and Ajmer Dargah Sharif blasts who were associated with RSS at some point or other.” The NIA has however clarified that “there was no concrete evidence to suggest that RSS or BJP were directly involved in terror training”.
How then, could the UPA cabinet ministers go public with serious charges of promoting terrorism against the nation’s major opposition party?
The burden of the six articles I wrote on the Samjhauta terror was that it was only the Samjhauta terror in which not Indian Muslims but Pakistani Muslims were killed. It was pointed out in the latest comment on this subject published on December 14th:
In other words the suspicion was voiced that by the highly fraudulent hyphenation of India and Pakistan on cross border terrorism the government was promoting a spurious peace dialogue with Islamabad. Was that suspicion far-fetched?
Mr. Shinde’s speech and its reaction from Hafiz Saeed completely overshadowed the elevation and maiden speech of Mr. Rahul Gandhi in Jaipur. The new Congress Vice President made brave statements about changing the culture and system of this nation.
The nation will watch and wait.
It will then decide whether a system, in which Mr. Om Prakash Chautala is sentenced to jail for 10 years while Mr. Suresh Kalmadi travels abroad, and where an officer questioning the land deals of Mr. Robert Vadra is promptly transferred, is really poised for change.
