Afzal Guru – “Please don’t compare me with Sarabjit. The issues are separate. My sympathies are with him, but my fight is for the Kashmir conflict. Now, I am not even seeking any clemency and have no objection to the government deciding my fate.” [link]

Afzal Guru has also said something that MF Hussain also said sometime back. Paraphrasing : The UPA govt. biggest problem is its indecision, only the NDA can come and hang me and in case of Hussain that only NDA can bring me back to the country.

Afzal Guru is pending hanging for attacking the parliament, all courts from the lowest to the Supreme have sentenced him to death. The BJP is asking for an early implementation of the courts order so that justice is done to the brave soldiers who died fighting to protect the parliament.

The congress is in a different mood altogether, they have probably taken to Arundhati Roy’s advice “What is the hurry to hang him?”. Hope Ms. Roy got her answer from the horses mouth. The BJP does have a point in demanding action, more prolonged the issue, more communal a turn it takes. Earlier it would and should have been a simple hanging of a terrorist. The congress has managed to invent more angles to the issue in trying to protect him. Many muslim organisations have come out against terror, no muslim organisation as such opposes his hanging. What is the hold up?

Alright, if we want to move towards a no-hanging sort of a culture, then make the case for that, but do not please give it a communal angle and try to justify the innocence of Mr. Guru like human rights activists. The left would be more than happy to save some face as being a part of the govt. and help you formulate this. But why the delay?

Congress justifies. “There is no authenticity of Afzal’s statement, whether the interview was done with permission, and whether he actually said it or not. Rajnath Singh should know that is a constitutional process and hence it will take time,” Congress spokesperson Jayanthi Natarajan said.

Jayanthi Natarajan is trying to rub the delay off on the process, which does not exist. There are no procedures pending. No papers have moved on the issue, all trials are over and its plain action which is pending which the congress will not take. And as the matter gathers dust, it will seem as if those who ask for the court order to be obeyed are communal rascals.

The problem with congress is that they end up giving a communal angle to each issue.

“Vinasha kale vipareeta budhi”

Like the old Indian adage, towards the end of their term congress’s ministers statements are indicating absence of any thought whatsoever. While Arjun Singh has already set benchmarks in servitude with his sycophantic loyalist sycophantic statements, Shivraj Patil is engaged in different kind of mindless blabber.

The Delhi High Court has earlier reprimanded the ministry for inaction in dealing with immigrants in the state. Consequently the Bangladeshi immigrants are being placed in transit camps in large numbers. Rajasthan has made numerous requests to the centre asking for help and direction in dealing with Bangadeshi immigrants. The inaction on the part of the home ministry has caused many causalities in Jaipur blasts. Now the state is following the centre’s directions and placing them in transit camps and Mr. Patil, completely slipping into amnesia about what his own ministry wrote to Rajasthan government asking it to quarantine the illegal Bangladeshis, has now denied it. He goes on to say that we are living in a democracy not a monarchy.

How it escapes Mr. Patil’s mind that the deportations in Delhi were also sanctioned by the court (hence legal) is quite tough to understand. Besides, we are a democracy, but we do have an entry policy, a visa requirement. It may be against democratic interests of Mr. Patil but how is deportation of illegal immigrants against democracy as such is something that Mr. Patil only can explain.

Patilisms have reached its height with,

“If you are asking for Afzal Guru’s hanging, then how can you ask for pardon for Sarabjit Singh?” [video]

Afzal Guru, an LeT militant, is convicted and guilty in the parliament attacks. And Sarabjit Singh, a person with mistaken identity who has been sentenced to death under Pakistans anti-terror laws. “They are both the same, why death for one and clemency for other!!?” — Profound thoughts, its only the creative illiterate mind of a Mr. Shivraj Patil which can render such bullshit with such ease.

Asked what would be done in Guru’s case, Patil said: “We will do whatever is appropriate according to law”.

Mr. Patil, as a home minister it reeks of irresponsibility for someone like you not to keep track of the court judgements. The law has already spoken when you were asleep. Mr. Guru has been given the death sentence and the sentence has been upheld. It is the President’s will to hold the clemency, but the appropriate action by law has already been given. And everyone knows, President can decide only upon the Home ministry’s recommendations.

Mr. Patil’s vipareeta buddhi is further made worse by the fact that he places the rights of aliens over the safety of citizens. His amnesia over directions to state on handling of illegal immigrants and his illiterate- immature comments are a bane to the ones already suffering the aftermath of the blasts. Mr. Home minister would be well advised to take his feet out of his mouth and do something productive like Ms. Raje is doing in Rajasthan.

Mr. Patil’s true follower — Ms. Sheila Dikshit!

After the issue of illegal Bangladeshis has gained prominence in the public domain, one after the other Congress leaders are fighting it out to save the rights those ‘visitors’! After all, they are the Congress vote bank — yes, they have ration cards, voter ids, driving license and what not! — courtesy: Congress and CPM. Coming to Ms. Dikshit, yea, the same lady who cried against Biharis and UP-wala migrants in Delhi saying that they are a burden on the capital’s resources now says that illegal Bangladeshis are her guests and India believes in ‘athiti devo bhava’!

What a hypocrisy!
