Why Center is Providing Security For Separatists But Not For Soldiers?

Posted: 07 Jul 2018 10:06 AM PDT

It is a matter of utmost concern that in our country Centre is spending money like water on the security expenditure of separatists Hurriyat leaders but is not ready to spend even a small amount on the soldiers who are based properly in Jammu and Kashmir making them soft targets of terrorists! Centre strongly feels that Hurriyat are our own people who are most special above our soldiers and

Supreme Court To Look Into Validity Of Amended Law Permitting Political Parties To Accept Foreign Funding

Posted: 07 Jul 2018 10:00 AM PDT

It is a matter of deepest regret that both the Congress and the BJP which have ruled India from 1947 to 2018 fully and firmly support the unrestricted, unaccounted and undisclosed political donations to political parties from foreign countries. What does this imply? Do they want to always dance at the whims and fancies of some foreign power and say nothing as they get huge political funding

It is a matter of utmost concern that in our country Centre is spending money like water on the security expenditure of separatists Hurriyat leaders but is not ready to spend even a small amount on the soldiers who are based properly in Jammu and Kashmir making them soft targets of terrorists! Centre strongly feels that Hurriyat are our own people who are most special above our soldiers and therefore they must be provided security on topmost priority! What is even more disgusting to note is that nearly a month after Army soldier Aurangzeb of 44 RR was kidnapped and killed by terrorists in Pulwama while on Eid leave after torturing him, police now have recovered the body of police constable Javed Ahmed Dar who was posted as personal security officer to Senior Superintendent of Police Shailendra Mishra and was abducted by unidentified militants from his native village of Vehil in Shopian district on the evening of July 5 while he had gone to purchase medicines and was shot in the head and his body was found from the roadside at Sehpora in the neighbouring Kulgam’s Pariwan village!   
                                   Last year we saw how Lt Umar Fayyaz was kidnapped at gun point from a wedding ceremony which he was attending of his close relative and tortured and then shot dead! Earlier to this we saw how DSP Ayyub Pandit was shot dead by followers of separatists leaders for whose security he was posted there! Such incidents are increasing but Centre is just bothered about security of Hurriyat leaders who want Jammu and Kashmir to be merged with Pakistan!  This is shocking!
                                           What is most shocking is that Centre has taken the most condemnable stand that all soldiers can’t be provided security but Hurriyat have to be provided security at any cost and under any circumstances! Centre strongly feels that Rs 560 crore on security of Hurriyat leaders coming directly from taxpayers money is a very small amount but soldiers and cops posted in J&K who themselves hail also from Jammu and Kashmir must protect themselves as no security can be given to them! Which nation in the world will behave like this other than India?
                                        Which nation in the world other than India will treat Hurriyat leaders who always keep stoking the fire of separatism in Kashmir and keep chanting anti-India slogans always as “Most Favoured VVIPs” by spending many crores on their security every year and not spend even a small amount on soldiers and cops who safeguard Jammu and Kashmir from terrorists and Pakistani soldiers? Which nation in the world other than India will unilaterally confer “Most Favoured Nation” status on Pakistan since 1996 which is continuing till now even though they have been waging a proxy war against us since 1947 and we have lost more than a lakh soldiers and many people because of it? Which nation in the world other than India believes in inviting ISI agents to India to inspect the site which had been attacked by terrorists trained by ISI?
                                           Which nation other than India believes in asking world to declare Pakistan a “terror sponsor country” while itself according it the “Most Favoured Nation” status unilaterally? Which nation believes in inviting the Pakistan invader Gen Pervez Musharraf to India just two to three months after Kargil war which he masterminded in which we lost more than 600 soldiers as per official figures and who himself threatened to nuke India and had entered about 15-16 km inside Indian territory just before Kargil war started as he himself candidly acknowledges to boost soldiers morale to slaughter our soldiers most cruelly? Which nation other than India believes in trusting a man like Musharraf who stands accused of killing his own PM Benazir Bhutto, Abdul Rashid who was Imam of Lal Masjid, Nawab Bukhti of Baluchistan and many others and who hails terror leaders as “Osama to hero hain ji hero, Hafiz Saeed to bilkul aasli hero hain ji. Bharat ke liye yeh aatankwadi hain paar hamare liye yein to freedom fighter hain”?
                                          Kuwait has severed all relations with Pakistan and ordered all Pakistan is to leave Kuwait but India believes MFN status to Pakistan should still continue just like security for Hurriyat! Should we be proud of this even as our soldiers are openly kidnapped by terrorists and killed after torturing them as Centre feels soldiers can never be given security? How long will Centre justify its idiotic stand?   
                                  How long will politicians plead ceasefire for terrorists, traitors and Pakistan? How long will politicians plead “talks and dialogues” with these rogues? How long will politicians refuse to learn anything from past experiences like the brutal murder of police constable Javed Ahmed Dar, Lieutenant Umar Fayyaz among others and continue appeasing terrorists and Pakistan?
                                      How long will Most Favoured Nation (MFN) status for Pakistan continue since 1996 unilaterally like unilateral ceasefire till now? How long will Pakistan enjoy benefit of Indus Water Treaty will killing our citizens mercilessly?
                                   How long will Centre give unfettered licence to Pakistan and terrorists unilaterally to kill our soldiers in the sacred month of Ramzan? Mohammad Haneef Khan who is Aurangzeb’s father who is himself an ex-serviceman stands perfectly justified when he says that, “I want to ask PM Modi if he’s listening to me, why are you appeasing stone-pelters and separatists? Punish the terrorists who killed my son. Why was Ramzan ceasefire announced? Terrorists have no religion, then why operations were stopped against them during Ramzan? Why Pakistani flags are allowed to be waved openly in India?” Absolutely right!
                                            How can cases be withdrawn suddenly against more than 10,000 stone-pelters by J&K State Government who slap our soldiers and make sure that their helmet is thrown in dustbin? How can a crime be encouraged openly by a duly elected State Government? How can Centre too endorse it by doing nothing to stop this? Why even Supreme Court which is quick to always advocate zero tolerance for fake encounters and violations by soldiers of citizens right absolutely silent on this?
                                          Does Centre favour stone pelting on our soldiers? How can supporters of terrorists start pelting stones on soldiers when they are engaged in fire battle with terrorists without direct blessing from Centre? Why should they not be killed straightaway? Why are cases withdrawn against them instead? Why Supreme Court says nothing on this? We saw recently how supporters of terrorists in Afghanistan started fleeing when soldiers opened fire on them! Why can’t our soldiers do the same?
                                            Why people are allowed to get away even after pelting stones on our soldiers? Which nation other than India will tolerate this open insult of our soldiers? It is in PM Narendra Modi’s raj that we have started seeing such reprehensible attacks on our soldiers openly and still are allowed to get away and instead FIR is lodged against soldiers which compels families of soldiers to approach Supreme Court!    
                                       Why this blind appeasement of Pakistan since 1947 which never deserved independence as an independent nation? Why whole of J&K not annexed? Why people of Pakistan Occupied Kashmir keep agitating against Pakistan and why India allowed Pakistan to get away with it? Why even after winning 1971 war decisively did we not annex Bangladesh as well as whole of Kashmir? Why we gave back more than 93,000 Pakistani soldiers who were captured as prisoners of war even though  they didn’t free more than 100 of our soldiers and they were ruthlessly tortured by Pakistani soldiers as testified by former Pakistan PM Zulfikar Ali Bhutto in his book who wrote that he could not sleep whole night as he could hear helpless cries of Indian soldiers being beaten mercilessly?
                                Why politicians never want Pakistan to be declared a “terror state” and named “Aatankistan” as demanded by Maulana Mehmood Madani  who is leader of Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind and MP from Bangalore Rajeev Chandrashekhar even though they demand the same from world at very international forum like UN and hail young bureaucrats for speaking valiantly? What is the real mystery behind this? Why is free license given to “traitors, terrorists and Pakistan” to kill our brave soldiers and others during Ramzan? Is Ramzan meant to kill Indians? How long will leaders fool themselves and this nation?
                                      Who is the great military adviser who is advising and guiding our PM and Home Minister to resort to all such foolish and self-destructive actions like Ramzan ceasefire, continuing with MFN status for Pakistan unilaterally, retaining Article 370 and Article 35A, continue spending Rs 560 crore every year from taxpayers money on Hurriyat leaders who openly shout slogans favouring Pakistan, continue allowing Pakistan to take advantage of Indus Water Treaty which Modi had earlier himself criticised  and many more such foolish acts?
                                         Bluntly put: Are we really a sovereign country? Is some foreign power giving political donations to our leaders and remote controlling them? Why Centre doesn’t want nation to know that which party is getting how much money from foreign countries which alone explains whyretrospective amendments made to the Foreign Contribution Regulation Act (FCRA), 1976?  Is this is why leaders learn nothing and laugh shamelessly indulging in “physical fitness shows” telecasted live even as our brave soldiers and journalists are publicly massacred and their relatives wail over the dead bodies like we saw in case of 5 BSF soldiers including an Assistant Commandant? Supreme Court must order an independent probe into this!
                                      To be sure, Supreme Court cannot keep on seeing all this like a mute spectator and just keep always attacking our soldiers for human right violations while saying nothing on this! It is heartening to see that Supreme Court has issued notices to Centre on a PIL challenging retrospective amendments to FCRA, 1976 which will benefit suspect political donations by certain NRI-led companies to BJP and Congress!  Why are leaders who take such steps of betrayal like ceasefire with terrorists and Pakistan in the name of Ramzan whose only objective is to kill all those who are loyal to India not taken to task? Why leaders say they have given full and free hand to soldiers but ground reality is that pro-Pakistani people are given freedom to attack soldiers, stone their vehicles, beat them and yet FIR registered against our soldiers? If this trend continues then we are certainly allowing UN to pass “adverse remarks” against India as we just saw and India will be mocked as the “weakest country in the world who is like a tiger without teeth” as is happening also and happened during Kargil war also when we shamelessly invited Pakistani invader Gen Musharraf to India even though he and his soldiers could not win in Kargil and take away any territory from us!
                                      In the ultimate analysis, it is Centre which has to act right by showing no mercy for terrorists, Hurriyat and Pakistan! Centre must end all security expenses of Hurriyat leaders who must be left to fend for themselves and should provide security to all soldiers who face security threat or who hail from Jammu and Kashmir as they are the most vulnerable targets and they have to be protected at all cost and under all circum stances because if this is not ensured then no person from Jammu and Kashmir will ever like to join any job in forces whether it is in Army or BSF or ITBP or police or any other force! Centre must itself first start treating Pakistan like a rogue nation before demanding the same from the world! US or Russia or any other country will not fight for us! We have to fight our own battle by acting tough against Pakistan and terrorists and their sympathizers like Hurriyat! But is Centre willing to do so and stop permitting Pakistan, terrorists and stone-pelters to attack our soldiers at their own whims and fancies? I doubt! The biggest reason is that just like Pakistan our leaders too are not ready to reform themselves! Just one surgical strike is nothing but hogwash! We have to start becoming more assertive by not mollycoddling in front of Pakistan, terrorists and stone-pelters but Centre always foolishly buckles for reasons known best to them only!

It is a matter of deepest regret that both the Congress and the BJP which have ruled India from 1947 to 2018 fully and firmly support the unrestricted, unaccounted and undisclosed political donations to political parties from foreign countries. What does this imply? Do they want to always dance at the whims and fancies of some foreign power and say nothing as they get huge political funding from them? What else can justify foreign funding of political parties?
                                               This is nothing but the single biggest proof of political treachery  that politicians do with our great nation! This alone explains why unfettered license is given by political parties ruling India to rogue countries like Pakistan and dreaded terror groups to indulge in merciless killings of our brave soldiers, armless people, hapless children and women among others and then justifying it in the name of “Ramzan ka Ceasefire”! Such unprovoked killings can never be justified nor permitted to happen under any circumstances but politicians ensure this by ordering soldiers not to open fire and exercise maximum restraint by even braving their slaps and their helmets being thrown in the gutters and then doing lip service by hailing an open insult of our soldiers as “commendable restraint”!
                                      Which self-respecting nation will ever indulge in such act of treachery with their own people and brave soldiers? India! Which self-respecting nation will give unfettered license to rogue countries like Pakistan, traitors like stone pelters to freely attack our soldiers whenever they want without facing an retaliation  and dreaded terror groups like Lashkar, Jaish, Hizbul among others to first abduct our brave soldiers like Aurangzeb and then torture them mercilessly and then kill them and still order soldiers not to retaliate as “Ramzan ka Ceasefire” is still in operation? India! Which self-respecting nation will permit stone pelters and traitors to wave Pakistani flags, flags of dreaded terror groups like ISIS and slap our soldiers who have to tolerate all this quietly and yet justify this in the name of “winning the heart and soul of Kashmiris”? India!
                                               Are we really a self-respecting nation? Certainly not! This alone explains why politicians allowed Pakistan which Justice Markandey termed as “fake country” to come into existence on map and then allowed them to even retain a large part of J&K which they had illegally occupied in 1948 and then like fools rushed to UN instead of fighting and taking back the whole of J&K! Not stopping here, even when we won the 1971 war superbly and Indian Army captured 93,000 Pakistani prisoners of war, our politicians ensured all of them were fed well and released honourably even though Pakistan didn’t release more than 100 of our soldiers and tortured them mercilessly as was testified even by former Pakistan PM Zulfikar Ali Bhutto while he was in jail and he could not sleep in jail as the Indian soldiers next to his room barrack were mercilessly beaten and tortured and ensured that another fake country as Justice Markandey Katju calls Bangladesh was born as an independent nation!         
                                           Even now things don’t end here only! They now want political settlement of J&K with traitors, separatists Hurriyat group who always keep toeing Pakistani line and even spend taxpayers money of Rs 560 crore on them every year for their various expenses! Hurriyat wants one more partition of India! Yet some leaders of Congress and BJP shamelessly keep giving them undue relevance to them for reasons known best to them!
                                      India has lost more soldiers in cross border terrorism termed as “proxy war” waged by Pakistan and yet politicians repeatedly want “Ramzan ka Ceasefire” with them and terrorist groups who use these opportunity to shell our border areas due to which more than lakh people are forced to migrate and many are killed similarly they attack our soldiers who are killed as they are ordered not to undertake any counter operations by these very politicians! This happened in Vajpayee’s era and now again! Our soldiers are repeatedly betrayed by politicians of Congress and BJP by repeatedly trusting them, allowing them to kill our soldiers and yet get away! Not just this, India granted Most Favoured Nation status to Pakistan unilaterally in 1996 which is continuing till now unabashedly and BJP and Congress both are equal conduits in ensuring that this is never revoked till now even though Pakistan has ensured that more than a lakh soldiers and many people are repeatedly killed by their forces and terrorists trained by Pakistani Army and ISI!
                                        Not just this, officers of notorious ISI are again unilaterally invited to inspect the place in Pathankot where ISI itself sent terrorists to mercilessly kill our soldiers even though NIA is refused permission to go to Pakistan! To top it all, Pakistan is allowed to gain hugely from the unequal Indus Water Treaty made with it in 1960 till now!
                                    As if this is not enough, Pakistani invader and mastermind of Kargil war Gen Pervez Musharraf is given a grand red carpet welcome to India just 2 to 3 months after Kargil war in which we lost more than 600 brave soldiers as per official figures and Captain Saurav Kalia along with 5 soldiers of 4 Jat Regiment were mercilessly tortured for 22 days, beaten, blinded by piercing their eyes with hot iron rods, maiming their body parts not sparing even their private parts and then finally shot in the head before handing their dead bodies to India yet all this was overlooked and Musharraf who spent one night about 15 to 16 km inside Indian  territory to boost the morale of terrorists and Pakistani soldiers to mercilessly kill our soldiers and who even threatened to nuke India if our soldiers dared to cross the border line was given a royal grand welcome most shamelessly by our politicians attended by leaders from all big parties! This same Musharraf hails dreaded terror leaders Osama bin Laden and Hafiz as “Osama to hero hain ji hero! Hafiz Saeed bhi hero hain ji hero! Those who fight in J&K are freedom fighters and not terrorists”!  Should we be proud of this?
                              Simply put, Gen Pervez Musharraf is facing charges of murder in his own country of former Pakistan PM Benazir Bhutto, Maulana Akbar Bukti of Baluchistan, Lal Masjid cleric Abdul Rashid Ghazi among others yet India honoured him and even big media houses too honoured him as if he as a very good man! He made aborted attempt in 1988 to capture Siachen as Brigadier and then again in 1999 another aborted attempt to capture Kargil yet our politicians and some big media houses keep courting him for reasons known best to them!
                                      Coming back to the main point, the Supreme Court on July 2 issued notices to the Central Government on a petition challenging retrospective amendments made to the Foreign Contribution Regulation Act (FCRA), 1976. The PIL claims amendments were intended to protect suspect political donations by certain NRI-led companies to the Congress and BJP. The plea, filed by the Association of Democratic Reforms (ADR), was argued by senior Supreme Court lawyer Prashant Bhushan and was filed by lawyer Neha Rathi! A Bench of Apex Court led by CJI Dipak Misra issued the notices!
                              It would be pertinent to mention here that the government will now have to file a formal reply defending the amendments. The amendments were made after a Delhi High Court judgment delivered on March 28, 2014 which had declared as illegal donations made by some NRI-led companies such as Vedanta to the BJP and Congress! Delhi High Court had raised serious questions over the hush-hush manner in which political parties accept funds from foreign countries!
                                       Truth be told, under the law, as it stood then, political parties were disallowed from taking donations from foreign entities. Once the Delhi High Court ruled against them and asked the Election Commission and the government to act against them within six months, the Central Government brought in the retrospective amendments in March 2018 making these donations post-facto legal. The Finance Acts 2016 and 2018 had made certain amendments to the Foreign Contribution Regulation Act, 2010, changing the 1976 law with effect from April 1, 2018.  
                                    As it turned out, the ADR petition argued that the amendments were an attempt to overturn the judgment passed by the Delhi High Court holding the BJP and Congress guilty of receiving foreign funding. It said that these amendments have opened doors to unlimited political donations from foreign companies thereby legitimizing financial contributions from foreign sources. The retrospective amendments changed the definition of what constitutes a foreign company in such a way that key beneficiaries would not face legal scrutiny for donations with effect from September 26, 2010. Initially the BJP and Congress had challenged the Delhi High Court judgment in the Apex Court but later withdrew it abruptly! Instead, the government then decided to take legislative steps to circumvent the Delhi High Court ruling and legitimise the funding received from abroad!    
                                         Speaking for myself, all foreign funding to all political parties in any manner should stop forthwith! We know too well how shamelessly these parties and politicians kowtow in front of terrorists and rogue nations like Pakistan by repeatedly declaring “Ramzan ka ceasefire” so that our people, children and soldiers are mercilessly slaughtered by them, allowing traitors to attack our soldiers and yet not allowing FIRs to be filed against them rather allowing the withdrawal of FIR against more than 10,000 stone pelters as we saw recently in J&K and worst of all ordering FIR to be filed against soldiers which compels the families of soldiers to fight the case in Supreme Court as we saw in case of Major Aditya Kumar whose father Lt Colonel Karamveer Singh said his son had been “wrongly and arbitrarily” named in FIR! But can every father of every soldier afford to fight similarly? Certainly not!
                                       To be sure, eminent and senior lawyer of Apex Court Prashant Bhushan very rightly demanded that these amendments should be repealed as it has only served to open the door for unlimited, unaccounted and unrestricted flow of money from foreign countries to political parties! Bhushan also rightly pointed out that many fake companies will open in India because of this amendment! There can be no denying it!
                                              On a concluding note, I am sure that Supreme Court will certainly set the matter right on  this because this is connected with the very independence of our great nation which can be put in peril by greedy and vested politicians just for getting funding from foreign countries to win elections! Can this be ever allowed? This under no circumstances can ever be allowed to happen anyhow in India!
