Bombarding another country with the “Mother Of All Bombs” – Who on earth gave anyone the right to do so?

As soon as I read about the news of the so-called Super Power bombarding “once again” the territorial jurisdiction of another country, without even taking consent of the “elected government” of that very country, then these words from my other blog “A ‘qualified’ apology by Mr. Tony Blair for Iraq invasion – Was it even an apology “in real sense”?”, immediately honked in my mind – “Invading other countries to showcase the world that we are a Super Power is supposed to be the favourite pass time of some of the leaders, right?”. These words aptly fit in today’s time as well. Alas! Nothing actually changed in all these years.

First of all, let me make it very clear that I am not against any ‘legal’ Anti-Terrorism step taken in any part of the world. Do note that the stress herewith is on the word ‘legal’ and invading another country in the name of peace, without even taking the consent of the “peace loving” government of that very country, couldn’t be justified as a legal step, by any stretch. On the contrary, if the government of any country is not “peace-loving” and is actually helping terrorism to breed on its soil, then all the peace-loving countries have every right to take action, without obtaining prior permission of the ruling government of that nation, which apparently doesn’t believe in a peaceful world, but not otherwise.

In fact in my other blog “Yes, I am helping the Terrorists”, I have proposed a Joint Anti-Terrorism model and formation of a Global Special Task Force (GSTF). The prerequisite for this model is the prior permission of the Head of that respective peace-loving country, whose territorial jurisdiction the GSTF proposes to enter. This is the legal way of executing such critical missions. One can’t just decide solely on their own, and, on one fine day, proceed to bombard the land of any other nation, simply to flaunt their military power. This is seriously not acceptable and such one-sided step will never ever be able to achieve the mission of peace if that’s what their ultimate motive is, rather it will create hatred and will prompt other countries to call for a war.

Whoever is silent on United States of America’s (USA’s) recent bombarding on the land of Afghanistan, thinking that this is not against them or their nation, should note that tomorrow it could be against them or their nation as well. Do remember that if you don’t oppose any unlawful act now, then you are accepting the dominance of the countries and rulers who are intoxicated in the influence of power. So it’s my earnest request to each and every peace-loving individual and country to very strongly oppose this unjustifiable act of USA, wherein a lot many innocent civilians got killed and were forced to be a victim of someone’s arrogance.

India is a “Peace Loving” nation and also has friendly relations with Afghanistan, so without fail we should stand by the side of Afghanistan government, as well as, the innocent people residing over there. How could a nation, whose Father was a firm believer of Peace and Non-Violence, stay quiet on this illegal act of bombarding any country with the Mother of All Bombs? If any of us think that staying quiet against this act of USA will help us in building our relations strong with them, then sorry to say but we are living in a fool’s paradise. It’s a high time we take a strong stand against any kind of injustice taking place in any part of the world or else the hammer is going to hit hard on us sooner or later.

Mr. Donald Trump this common man very strongly opposes your step of bombarding a peace-loving nation without their permission. Just because you are the President of a so-called Super Power doesn’t mean that you have all the right to intrude the territorial frontiers of any other nation. In the name of peace, no one is authorized to take such steps solely on their own wish. For your kind information, Super Power is not about displaying that you can intrude any nation and bombard them without their permission.

We all should remember that there is a Supreme Soul up there, who has the real Super Power and in front of that Supreme Soul, our power is negligible. So next time even before thinking of taking such steps solely out of arrogance, keep in mind that we are just puppets in the hands of Supreme Soul and one day our arrogance could be the reason of our downfall too.

Let us all strive together to make this world a peaceful place to live in. Live and let others live peacefully too. I wish that the Almighty bless us with good sense.

God bless you all!

Stay in touch.

The Martyr’s soul will indeed be Proud

Miss Gurmehar Kaur, a 20-year-old student of Delhi University, is being trolled and threatened for opposing one of the acts of Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP). She basically hails from Jalandhar, India and was a part of the campaign run against ABVP on social media platform. Herewith, please be noted that it is being alleged that the members of ABVP were involved in the violence that took place on dated 22nd February 2017 in the campus of Ramjas College, New Delhi. Now it’s for the authorities and the investigation agencies to investigate and reveal the names of all those who were involved in that violent act.

However, it seems that as a “customary act” once again the attention has been deliberately shifted from the main issue to the opposition of that very issue. So, before reaching to any conclusion, it will be prudent for us to know that what this girl was actually opposing. Was her stand in favour of any Anti-Nation activity? Was she opposing any kind of legal activity? Above all what exactly she wanted to convey? And to find the answer to all such questions, we will have to go through the post of Gurmehar Kaur. If anyone with sane mind looks at her post, they could easily figure it out that she was simply opposing any kind of violence in the college. Further, to voice her stand against violence this brave girl openly dared ABVP that she is not afraid of them.

Now, I seriously fail to understand that what is the mistake of this girl in raising her voice against a serious issue? In a country whose “Father of the Nation” was himself against any kind of violence is it wrong on the part of a Martyr’s daughter to raise her voice against violence? Nowadays, how easy it is to pronounce anything as an Anti-Nation activity. If someone raises their voice against any kind of injustice, they are held as Anti-Nation. What kind of democracy is this where one who speaks against violence has to leave the city and those who were actually involved in that violence are still roaming freely in that very city?

Shame on us that in the heat of opposing someone we can fall to such a low-level, that we don’t even hesitate in threatening people from raping them. What kind of society is this where the educated youths are indulging in violence and still they get support in the name of Patriotism? However valid our point may be but who on earth gave us the right to take law in our hands? A democratic nation should have a zero tolerance policy against any kind of violence. Only then we can make our country a safe place to live in.

Surprisingly, the tech savvy Central Government always keeps mum whenever such incidences take place, especially in which people related to their political party are involved. While, at all the other time, the Central Government’s ministers including our Pradhan Sevak are super active on social media platforms. Why can’t the Central Government take a strong stand against any kind of violence and come out openly to oppose all those who were involved in such kind of acts? I hope they know it that they are a People’s Government, not a Party Specific Government.

A Central Minister on this incidence commented that “The Martyr’s soul must be crying”. Mr. Minister, it’s not the martyr’s soul, rather we should be the one who should be crying on such a treatment with a martyr’s family in our country. It is the same nation to which Late Captain Mandeep Singh gave preference over his family or any other thing. It is the same nation for which he gave away his life in the 1999 Kargil war. It is the same nation for which the martyr’s father too served in the armed force. And for all this sacrifice and love towards the nation what he gets in return?

His daughter is not safe in the same country, she is being threatened with rape and murder, she is getting trolled for voicing against violence and above all she has to leave the city for security reasons. Is this the way a martyr’s family should be treated within his own country? Forget about showing respect towards the martyrs, these people can’t even respect the dignity of a female. However, it is commendable that in spite of all the threats the brave girl stands against the sick minded people. Seeing her daughter’s brave stand, the martyr’s soul will indeed be Proud.

I would like to end this blog with the hope that may we always choose a peaceful and a decent way of protesting against anything that we want to oppose. Let there be freedom of speech and expression in a real sense. For the sake of this nation, I urge everyone not to link each and everything with an anti-nation act. I wish that the Almighty give good sense to each one of us.

God Bless you all!

MLA’s husband slapped the Circle Inspector in Kota (Rajasthan) – Isn’t the Police Force themselves responsible for such kind of ill-treatment with their officers?

A recent incidence in Kota (Rajasthan) has once again ignited the “Battle of Superiority” between the Politicians and Police force. This incidence took place on dated 20th February 2017, when the workers of the present ruling party in Rajasthan state i.e. Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP), went to protest at the Mahaveer Nagar, Police Station, Kota (Rajasthan).

Police version – The Circle Inspector (CI) Mr. Sreeram Badesara, was slapped by Mr. Narendra Meghwal, husband of Mrs. Chandrakanta Meghawal, Member of Legislative Assembly (MLA) from Ramganj Mandi. In response to the same, the police have to use batons on the BJP workers in order to control the situation. It is also to be noted here with that a video of slapping the CI Mr. Sreeram Badesara has gone viral in the meantime.

Politician version – The police manhandled the workers of BJP and arrested a few of them. Later, the MLA, Mrs. Chandrakanta Meghawal went to meet the workers at the police station. Mrs. Meghawal stated that she along with her husband and the BJP District Head were first beaten up by the police force in the garden and later in the chamber, as well. Mrs. Chandrakanta claimed that her husband has not been involved in any kind of violence and he only came in between to protect her.

After this violence, FIR has been lodged by both the parties involved. Now the ball is in the court of the responsible authorities to decide that whose version out of the two is correct and who actually was at fault. But it seems as if at present the axe has fallen on the concerned policemen only because five policemen of that police station are sent to the police line. Obviously, the orders of sending these policemen to police line have been issued by the seniors in the same police force.

Now did the senior police officers took this decision in order to conduct an unbiased investigation in the matter concerned or was it a step taken solely out of the political pressure, is something which only the senior officers could answer to. On the contrary, the local police force has come out openly in support of the staff of Mahaveer Nagar, Police Station. Many of the police stations in the city boycotted the Mess and an Assistant Sub-Inspector (ASI) has been reported to have requested for voluntary retirement in protest against this incidence.

Well, there is nothing wrong in supporting an honest person. In fact, we should always stand by the side of truth and, at the same time, protest and raise our voice against all the injustice happening around us. However, the big question is that when a police officer was slapped by the MLA’s husband, the entire police force got united and stood against their colleague, but what would have been their reaction if such an incidence happened with a common man?

Aren’t such incidences happening every now and then with the common men who doesn’t have any support of power, money or influence behind them? Aren’t the innocent victims always being harassed by the dishonest but powerful people? Whose side the “corrupt” police officers are taking in all such cases? Each and every single member of the police force should introspect that what would have been their stand if such an incidence took place between an honest common man and a dishonest powerful person?  Note: The above questions are only for the dishonest policemen. The honest policemen who always perform their duty diligently with utmost honesty should take a bow and keep up the good work.

When the common man pleads in front of the corrupt police officers for justice, don’t they disappoint the victim by taking the side of the powerful person? If yes, then it would not be wrong to say that the Police Force is themselves responsible for such kind of ill-treatment with their officers. It is because of the corrupt policemen that such powerful people get the courage to sit on the head of the entire department and act as if they are the King. It is nothing but the past conduct of the corrupt officials which comes back in the form of such incidences where even the honest officials get ill-treated. So it is for the entire police department to introspect, take learning from such incidences, as well as, take steps to ensure that no such incidence get repeated with the police force in the future.

I would like to end this blog with the very hope that “Truth and Justice should prevail always”. Let us always stand for honesty and justice, even if we have to fight against those who have the backing of money, power or influence. I do wish that there is peace all around and may the Almighty give good sense to each one of us.

God Bless you!

Being a Superpower is not about building walls against the entire world

Being a Superpower is not about attacking any country or a person. Being a Superpower is not about humiliating the respected dignities, personalities and common people of other countries. Being a Superpower is not about treating everyone else as inferior. Being a Superpower is not about carrying an ego that holds a person from apologizing for their own wrong deeds. Being a Superpower is absolutely not about building walls against the entire world.

Human Being is a social animal. We humans have to live together and breed a society that collectively develops. If any of the human beings thinks that they can live and progress all alone, keeping aside the interest of all other living beings, then sorry to say, but they are living an unrealistic dream. We can’t be so self-centred that what we care about is just our own ambitions and nothing else. Humanity is also about caring for others.

Similarly, if any nation wants to make progress solely on its own, then it is free to do so, but that is practically impossible. In this era of globalization no one can stay aloof and make progress. Each one of us is dependent on others for something or the other. If any nation dares to think that it’s a Superpower and is self-sufficient in all respect then it will be the biggest mistake of that nation. Economies of the entire world are dependent on each other. It is a cycle and hence when one is impacted the other is bound to be affected by it. We can’t take decisions in isolation, especially those which have a global impact. If still, someone tries to do that, then they should be ready to bear the consequences of the same in the long run.

No doubt it’s the right of any nation to protect their frontiers, and for that, if required, they are also free to build walls at their territorial boundaries (in consent with the neighbouring nation). However, if any leader is adamant and doesn’t consider the interests of other nations, doesn’t care about nations who are dependent on them or have friendly relations with them from centuries, while making and implementing the policies of their nation, then, in fact, they are building walls in the hearts of the entire world.

Throwing away the people from any nation or restricting entry into a nation could be a temporary boost up for that nation’s economy. But such nations should think that in this time of World Wide Web and oceans of opportunities available in every part of the world, will any country be able to restrict talented people from making their presence felt? By such acts, they will not only part away with the talents working for them but also widen the gap between nations for any future tie-ups.

Mr. President, United States of America (USA), it’s a genuine advice from a common man, that sooner the better you realize it that your attitude and steps are leading you nowhere else but to a steep downfall. By your egoistic behaviour and absurd decisions, you are harming no one else but your own country, people, party and yourself too. No doubt the entire world and their economies are going to be badly impacted by your insensitive decisions and rude behaviour, but in turn, it will surely have a larger negative effect on the USA and its economy too. Just wait and watch for the future to reveal the consequences of your steps.

Do remember that “Superpower is all about respecting every being and embracing the world with open arms”. Wish the leaders of the so-called Superpower nations would have read, understood and followed the couplet of the great saint Kabir Das Ji – “Bada hua toh kya hua jaisey pedh khajoor, panchi ko chaya nahi, phal lagey ati door” (In vain is the eminence, just like a date tree, no shade for travellers, fruit is hard to reach). I also hope that the egoistic souls have heard the famous quote of Confucius “The green reed which bends in the wind is stronger than the mighty oak which breaks in a storm.”

At last, I would like to point out that the best part of Democracy is that a government is elected only for a specific duration. However, the bad part is that some leaders could ruin the fate of the entire nation and its citizens during this period available to them. So it is up to the awaken citizens of every nation to keep a watch on all those whom they have elected to rule over them for the next term. If the citizens don’t stand against the wrong decisions of their rulers then no one else would be able to save them and their nation. At the same time, the entire world should come together and raise their voice against the absurd policies of any nation which impacts the whole world. If the entire world doesn’t register their protest against such acts now, then they will give an indication to the Superpower nations that they are willing to get oppressed by them in the near future. It’s a high time for all of us to speak against the wrong acts of any person/nation whoever it may be.

Always keep this in mind that “There is and will always be only one Superpower – the Almighty God”. I wish that the Almighty give good sense to each one of us.

God Bless you all!

Be in touch.

Democracy is also “Of the People”

I would like to start this blog by quoting the following paragraph extracted from my other Blog “Democracy is also “By the People”” – As per the dictionary meaning, the word Republic stands for “A political system in which the supreme power lies in a body of citizens who can elect people to represent them”. (Courtesy: Word Web). In simple words, Republic or Democracy is for the people, of the people and by the people. My interpretation of the last statement with regard to democracy is that “For the people” indicates Entitlement, “Of the people” denotes Ownership and “By the people” symbolizes Responsibility.

This Republic day, let’s talk about “Of the People” in a democratic setup and the ownership of the citizens in a democratic nation. Democracy is owned by the ‘awakened’ citizens of a democratic nation. Ownership of democracy is not bestowed by mere attaining the citizenship of a democratic country rather it has to be worked upon by each and every single citizen. If we are not awakened about our ownership rights and are afraid to fight for them, then sorry to say, but we don’t deserve to own anything, forget about democracy.

As an awakened citizen it is our first and foremost duty to protect our freedom and make sure that our democracy is intact. Freedom in all respect and aspect is the basic ingredient of Democracy. Democracy survives on freedom, and hence, if we don’t feel free then we can never own democracy. In spite of the fact that we are born in a free nation, unlike our ancestors who have to fight for the independence of our country, we should realize the importance of freedom and make sure that no one is able to snatch it once again.

No matter what, being an owner of the democracy, we are bound to guard it against all the odds that come its way. There are ill forces all around us which are always in search of an opportunity to snatch away our freedom and dethrone us from our ownership rights. If we are not awake, then slowly and gradually, we will compromise our freedom in the hands of those who have a malicious intention to rule over us.

Do remember that to own something and to maintain that ownership is not an easy task. Ownership brings with it a sense of pride and at the same time accompanies with it a lot of responsibilities. If we are not ready to fulfil our responsibilities, then we should better be ready to turn into a slave. Ownership of anything is extremely precious and it stays only with those who can take due care of it and secure it always.

On this auspicious day of Republic day, being celebrated every year on 26th January, let us all strive together to safeguard our ownership rights at every stage of our life. Let us pledge that if required we would not think twice before sacrificing our life in protection of our freedom and democracy. We should feel proud of being a citizen of the largest democracy in the entire world. As a patriotic citizen, we should always act as a true soldier in our respective fields to safeguard the interest of our nation and contribute towards the growth of Motherland India.

I wish you all a Very Happy Republic Day!

Jai Hind!

Assent to Ordinance on Jallikattu – Opening of a Pandora Box

In yet another suicidal attempt (after demonetisation) the present Central Government has given its assent to the Tamil Naidu state’s ordinance on Jallikattu (a traditional sport involving bull). By passing an ordinance for permitting the celebration of Jallikattu, the Indian Government has opened up a Pandora Box, which is definitely going to increase their trouble in the near future. Just wait and watch while a lot many demonstrations and demands for the passing of such kind of ordinances are on its way, to flood the Central Government from every corner of the country in the near future. God knows who advice Mr. Pradhan Sevak to take such decisions.

In the current scenario, a question does pop up in the minds of many of us that when the Honourable Court has banned an activity and is yet to decide on a serious issue then what was the urgency to pass an ordinance in the matter concerned? Was this move politically motivated or was it taken sheer out of public concern? If at all it was taken after keeping public concern in mind then does this move somewhere exhibits that our politicians think that the Honourable Courts are not bothered about the public sentiments and does not take into account the public concerns before passing any judgement?

Herewith, I would like to raise a very serious concern with regard to the autonomy of the courts. Aren’t ordinances like this nothing but a ‘legalised’ way of contempt of court? Just because there is a right available to bring an ordinance in order to surpass the orders of the courts, is it justifiable to make use of this right in such matters as well? Isn’t it a threat to the very existence of the courts in any country? What is the need of having courts when the government themselves can decide and finalize the case, which is still pending before the court of law? It’s a high time for the courts to take a note of the same and stand for their existence.

The politicians preach us to respect the orders of the Honourable Courts but it seems that when it comes to politics they don’t even think for a second, before going against any kind of court orders. If they actually acted as they preach, then instead of giving their consent on the ordinance, wasn’t it feasible for the “law abiding” politicians to plead in front of the court with their logical points and let this serious issue be decided only by the Honourable Court? If courts can open at odd hours to decide about the hanging of a terrorist then we are in a far better position to be heard and matters with which public sentiments are attached could indeed be decided on a high priority.

I would like to urge that instead of coming up with ideas like banning an organisation which works for the rights of animals, it would be appropriate if we can come up with ideas which would enable us to carry on our traditions, without ‘intentionally’ torturing and harming any of the living beings for our enjoyment. There is always a mid peaceful way to solve such kind of issues, like in the present case it would have been appropriate to conduct the sport without torturing or harming the animals, as well as, applying the utmost safety parameters.

Torturing or causing harm to other living beings, in the name of tradition, could not be allowed at all. If the traditions need to be changed for the betterment of our society then we should indeed be ready for that. Do remember that right to live freely is the fundamental right of every living being and not alone humans. Live and let others live peacefully too.

I wish that the Almighty give good sense to each one of us.

Ae Dil Hai Mushkil… – Part 2

Ae Dil Hai Mushkil (Hey heart, it’s difficult)…Yes, once again, it’s difficult to understand that how come, in a democratic nation, a political party (having a regional presence), has got the license to distribute “Patriotic Certificate” to the citizens of our country. For your information, “as of now”, they have fixed the charges of obtaining this certificate as Rs. 5 Crores, to be deposited in the Army Relief Fund. It’s indeed good news and an opportunity to grab, for all those who want to flaunt their patriotism by hanging the “Patriotic Certificate” on the wall of their Drawing room. Hurry up, go and grab this offer, before it gets expired or the rates are revised. After all, who knows, maybe it’s a limited period offer or a Diwali gift offered from the ‘Supremo’ of the so-called political party. So, better don’t miss this opportunity and get yourself certified, just by paying a ‘ransom’ oops donation of Rs. 5 Crore.

Is fixing the price by the self-acclaimed contractors of patriotism, their way of giving tribute to the sacrifices done by the soldiers of Motherland India? Wow, what a patriotic move, isn’t it? It’s just unbelievable that anyone can fall to such level. I wonder whether these people ever miss any opportunity to bake their political bread. Just for fulfilling their political agenda, they can very shamelessly take advantage of even the martyrs who lost their life protecting our country from the enemies. I fail to understand that what kind of politics is this which purely breeds on threatening the citizens of India, every now and then? How can the members of any political party be allowed to take law in their hands and destroy public and national property, in the name of patriotism?

Surprisingly, people from the Indian Film Industry, who were claiming themselves to be patriotic by publishing their videos, didn’t take long to bent their knees in front of the ‘Supremo’ of a political party. Just to get their movie released in that specific state, they agreed to the unlawful demand of the politicians. Doesn’t this in itself proves that their priority is only business, even if it requires parting away with the ideology? Just for the sake of saving themselves from a financial loss, they agreed to such terms, which any person who has a little bit of self-respect would never ever agree to. Alas, those who were claiming to be a soft target, themselves proved that they are soft enough to be threatened and compelled to act as per the orders and willingness of those who want to target them.

What was the government of that specific state doing when this deal among the contractors of patriotism and the persons related to that movie was taking place? Is it that they didn’t have any idea of such deal taking place? Or were they acting as a mediator to resolve this issue and came up with this fantastic idea of authorizing that political party to ask for an amount of Rs. 5 Crore to be deposited in the Army Relief Fund? Is the state government so helpless in front of all those who were publicly threatening that they won’t allow the screening of such movies in their vicinity? Didn’t the respective state government failed completely in tackling this issue and sending a strong message to all those who are behind the disturbances taking place in our society, time and again?

A serious question that comes to my mind is that whether the election commission takes note of all such incidences or not? Can’t the election commission cancel the registration of any political party based on the kind of violent activities they are always involved in? Is election commission only active at the time of elections or do they have some kind of a role to play in monitoring the actions of political parties, on an ongoing basis? Should political parties with a violent mindset and agenda be allowed to operate in a democratic nation?

All of us should think seriously that what kind of people are ruling over us. Does such kind of steps taken by the government, sends the right message to the peaceful citizens of our country, who always abide by the law? Will the common citizens ever feel safe, when those who govern them are themselves appearing helpless in front of the political parties? This deal should be an eye opener for each and every peace-loving citizen of Motherland India. It’s rightly said that a sleeping citizen is a threat to its nation itself. It’s a high time for all of us to wake up before they start threatening us and debar us from each and every legitimate right of ours that is bestowed to us by the Constitution of India. I do hope that the awakened citizens unite together and send a strong message to the political parties and their leaders that their violent agendas are not going to threaten us or not going to help them to win elections.

I wish that the Almighty give good sense to each one of us.

God bless you all!
