It is one thing to constantly gripe about the GOI, our systems or even PM Narendra Modi. Those remain within the realms of our internal squabbles and politics. To me, anti-nationals are those who strengthen the hands of our enemies. Enemies that have sworn to destroy India. You could call them “Misologists”. They have a predominant hatred for reason, logic and knowledge. So much that these anti-nationals would even go to the extent of distrusting a public statement by our Army DGMO over the surgical strikes at terror-camps across the LOC on September 29.
Conspiracy theories have been around us for ages. For decades many Americans have claimed the moon-landing in 1969 was a hoax. That the whole moon-landing thing was faked and choreographed in New Mexico just to show US was ahead of USSR in its space programme. There are many in the US that claimed 9/11 was orchestrated by their own govt to benefit the military-business-oil complex. There are also theories and documents claimed that Franklin Roosevelt knew about the Pearl Harbour attack but allowed it to happen so that US could join the war.
In India we have many conspiracy theories about the death of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose and Lal Bahadur Shastri. Belief in these theories depend a lot on how much damage it can politically cause. In the case of 9/11, many in Al Qaeda and in Pakistan claimed the conspiracy theories as evidence that the US bombed itself. Not very differently, there were those in India who were tweeting about the “timing” of the Uri attacks claiming it was timed just before the UNGA. Conveniently, Pak too picked up on these theories to claim the Uri attack was orchestrated by GOI. Post the surgical strikes, the usual suspects and Paki stooges in India were quiet for a while. But they couldn’t hold on too long to rake up bogus issues for their darling sponsors. Here’s among the worst of the lot:
And promptly the Paki Tribune carries Kejriwal’s soundbite to further their claim of “Zero loss” like one of our politicians did over the 2G scam. AK is famous for indirectly defending Paki terrorists, be it the Batla guys or Kashmiri terrorists or the current LOC issues. He claims Pak is indulging in propaganda so govt should clarify. Since when is Paki propaganda new to us? And who are those fuelling Paki propaganda through their utterances in India? We have known them long enough. And in the current case, AK found a great opportunity to cover up AAPs rapes, molestations, scams and corruption by throwing a spanner in the integrity and record of our Army. Gaurav Sawant points out who are the junket-loving foreign journalists sponsored by Pak to carry out fake stories:
The Indian Army is not a “terrorist army” that operates like the Pak army. Our army would not carry out acts that it won’t own up. Immediately after the strikes our DGMO Lt. Gen. Ranbir Singh called up his Paki counterpart to inform him of what action was taken. Pak too claimed it had lost soldiers:
The Pakis closed airspace at multiple locations fearing the surgical strike. They were quite aware of the possibility but not the surprise surgical attack. To echo AK were none other than Congis and media stooges. Here’s one who thinks GOI should share evidence with these ranters as if they have some divine entitlement to it.
Yes, according to Shekhar Gupta, the GOI should share evidence with the same people who bat for Pak and separatists and ensure more info is leaked to Pakis. The anti-nationals in India pose as big a danger to our security and army as do the Paki terrorists. Even Nawaz Sharif threatened action against India after the strikes. He called an emergency Cabinet-meet and also an emergency parliament session to deal with the situation. The message has been clearly sent to Pak that Indian army and GOI will no more tolerate terrorism and it needs to send the same message to the anti-nationals. Much to the chagrin of these army-haters, an Indian Express article carried more info on the strikes based on eye-witnesses across LOC:
The IE article by Praveen Swami (a normally cynical person when it comes to our army and PM Modi) writes about multiple terror-camps destroyed by our army. The article also grandly claims IE also had “classified documents” to support the content. I am sure this is a bogus claim and I doubt Swami or IE have any classified documents with them. The article is based on eye-witness accounts across the LOC. Politically, the Congress, AAP and other similar elements were baying against ModiSarkar for action against Pak. But now that some action has been taken they are disturbed to find it is true and for the first time the Central govt has acted firmly. So what do the Congis do? They put out a grand claim that they too carried out surgical strikes. Somewhat laughable! Is this some kind of political competition?
And what kind of surgical strikes did the Congis carry out where they claim to have lost more Indian soldiers than Pak soldiers? This is absurd to say the least. Former DGMO Vinod Bhatia was quick to reject the Congi claims. He even stated there were no strikes at all. That is more plausible. Remember, it was Rahul Gandhi who grandly said his party “supported the BJP during Kargil”. As if the Congress was doing a big favour to a political party rather than standing with the country and our army. Other than these political and activists there are duffers in Bollywood who claim movies make people-to-people contact and improve relations. Enough of this sick nonsense! It improves nothing except fatten their wallets a bit more. That we have such pathetic people in this country should be a warning on how many battles the GOI and patriots have to fight. Take a look at this guy:
Indians will suffer? For not watching some stupid movie? I would rather the movie bombed and went into a severe loss for such stupid utterances by Bollywood creeps. And the guy writing that article is none other than a film distributor. So no matter what, he gives two hoots about dead soldiers or our army but issues stupid warnings about some dumb movie. While these anti-nationals are the ones that Pak relies on heavily to propagate their nonsense there is definitely something that our army too needs to learn. They issue statements to avoid posting sensitive information on SM but who is it they take along to sensitive territories with Jawans issuing statements when they shouldn’t be even talking to someone who has no interest other than presenting the Pak POV and has a dubious record of hailing terrorists like Burhan Wani:
Well, now if the terrorists didn’t get the idea yet then they can get it from Barkha’s tweet about using the Chenab river to carry out some terror attacks. Time and again Army allows Barkha to hobnob with the Jawans or even senior officers from our Armed forces escort her here and there at military programmes. This is a serious danger and journalists should stop being allowed anywhere near army or conflict zones. The GOI needs to be slammed for such acts of indiscretion and not for demands of evidence of Army strikes across LOC. The Indian Army is one of the finest in the world with great traditions and history. Any sane and reasonable Indian would put his or her faith in what the senior officials of the Army put out as public statements over conflicts and surgical strikes. Cartoonists say it well when they show who stands on whose side when it comes to Pakistan:
A lot more can be said about the anti-nationals who bat for Pakistan. What comforts me, is that our army is winning and that is all. The surgical strike in September cannot and should not be called “revenge”. It is not. It should be described as merely a small “retribution” for years of terrorism by Pak and should the need arise more strikes to follow till Pakistan comes to senses as also their stooges in India.
