There has been so much fuss these days and it’s source is yet again the capital, Delhi. From TV channels to websites, everything is flooded with few common names, a new name, and the organisations that inevitably get attached with whatsoever happens in the state.
Gurmehar Kaur, a student of Delhi University, one fine day came with a video portraying message of peace, which was all in all a very good step. But she also had a hint of accusation that India should stop having wars with Pakistan and the not so friendly neighbours should be made allies. War killed my father , not Pakistan was what she said saying that she wants to send a peace message across the country.
Yes war was an event that made Captain Mandeep Sing a martyr in Operation Rakshak in 1999, but who was behind it? Indian politics? No. Prime minister? No!
It was the insidious motives of those Pakistani millitants and the ones involved with them who thought infiltrating the border , and this time way too much, would be just another stroll in the park. No madam. India did not start it, nor India bowed down. I want to bring intofocus three things here
It’s defending the country that killed her father. Not war. If infiltration happens, which happens even now, the ones that killed the brave Havildar Hangpan Dada from Arunachal , in Kupwara of JK in 2016. To protect your own territory is not war but defence.
Indian soldiers did not enter Pakistan and wage it.
Answer this question whoever thinks india’s war during kargil shouldn’t have happened. Then what should India have done? Peace talks with the millitants or Musharaf when the “friendly neighbourhood ” tried to get in and start guerilla attacks beyond the LOC?
If a 6 year old can think of murdering someone , 6 year old! If that is her level of innocence , than I am sorry she doesn’t deserve to be believed at any age.
The message should have been sent to Pakistan rather in India. Does India keep on waging wars? Or instead keep on protecting the land from infiltrators?
Now I am not into war mongering or hatred nor this is a hate speech. Not at all. Neither am I trying to support any organisation or represent one. But as an Indian citizen, the dignity of your motherland matters the most. And this responsiblity to protect the dignity is what every soldier is doing out there in cold landscapes of Siachen, to lifeless desert of Rajasthan and Gujarat. From the coastal lines of India to the dense forest of the north east.
My view? It’s very simple. No to wars. Definitely. But when attacked you cannot present a diplomatic portfolio to the opposing nation. Your first reaction should be defence! Do you think the enemies behind the lines will come and negotiate “ki Bhai 100 rupai k pakode aur do khamba de de chale jayenge” .
The country has become so sensitive that anything you say or do could be well presented against you as a violation of what not.
Dagnabbit! I had enough of it. Yes there are flaws in this country we all crave to be correct. That doesn’t create a need to point fingers and raise hands and voices everytime there is an opportunity to show others that we are way above these petty internal issues. Have we realised there are bunch of dicks sitiing across the border right now enjoying the undeserved rush in India created by whatever ideologists and there blind followers.
Miss Kaur has the right to express, so has Virender Sehwag. But like an idle friend said to me, we shouldn’t get the real perpetrators of crime get away with silly logic.
