Giving his deep insight into Narendra Modi style of leadership, Prime Minster Imran Khan said in a number of tweets that Indian government’s policy in the occupied Jammu and Kashmir is aimed at the implementation of evil ideology of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sang (RSS) Party. It is believed to be the mother organisation of Bhartia Janta Party (BJP). The point of view of the Prime Minister has been vindicated by not relaxing the curfew restrictions to allow Kashmiries to say Eid prayers at Jamia Masjid Srinagar and other big mosques in Kashmir valley, although the Indian authorities had promised to ease restrictions during Eid days. There are reports of acute food shortages and supply blockades of eatables.
Despite the total information blackout, TV footages are coming out of Kashmir that showed how thousand of Kashmiries defied and broke the curfew restrictions on Friday and protested on roads and streets of Srinagar. These footages were aired on international TV outlets including BBC and Aljazeera. The Indian forces had opened direct firing on the protestors and tear-gassed them, injuring a number of people.
RSS political philosophy is based on the principles of Hindutva that advocates the supremacy of a Hindu state and nurturing hardcore Hindu principles. It is an oppressive and extremist ideology of imposing supremacy of high cast controlled Hinduism over the millions followers of other religions including Islam, Christianity, Buddhism, and Zoroastrianism. It is even a threat to Sikhism founded by Guru Nanak. The RSS was founded by Dr. K.b Hedgewar in 1925. Ideologically, it is identical to Shudhi Movement of pre-partition Subcontinent which had been started by Ariya Samaj to forcefully bring back the people who converted from the cast ridden Hinduism to Islam and Christianity. In other words the RSS ideology not only poses grave threat to the survival of Muslims of India alone but also followers of Christianity, Buddhism, Zoroastrianism and Sikhism. The BJP government policy will certainly undermine the secular provisions of Indian Constitution. That is why former Prime Minister of India Dr. Manmohan Singh and other towering political figures of Indian Congress Party have criticised the abrogation of special constitutional status of Jammu and Kashmir which was guaranteed in Articles 370 and 35 A.
The survival threat created by Hindu chauvinistic movements and hypocrisy demonstrated by the leadership of Indian Congress by backtracking on Lucknow Pact and rejection of Jinnah 14 points convinced the leaders of Muslim League to make a demand for separate homeland, on the basis of two nations theory, for the Muslims of India which came into being in the shape of Pakistan on 14th August, 1947.
It is now incumbent upon the political leadership to educate the current generation about the rationale of two nations theory as certain politicians and self serving intellectuals had made attempts to blur the broad contours of this theory after the creation of Bangladesh in December 1971. These efforts are still on even from the platform of PML-N. In the first year of his third tenure as Prime Minster Nawaz Sharif, either by design or default, made a very intriguing remark in his speech at Alhamra Art Hall in a function arranged by SAFNA NGO. He said that we eat pulses and potatoes and the Indians also eat the same food commodities. The Eastern Border is a temporary line. The PML-N senior leadership appeared to have been fascinated and infatuated by Narendara Modi so much so that former Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal ridiculed Prime Minister Imran Khan letter sent to his Indian counterpart for resuming composite dialogue to resolve the outstanding dispute between the nuclear weapons armed neighbouring countries. He sarcastically said, “Imran Khan is begging for peace whereas Narendra Modi himself came to Raiwand Palace to meet Nawaz Sharif.”One may remind him that former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif held meeting with Narendra Modi along with his family members on 25th December, 2016 and no high official of government of Pakistan could participate in that meeting whereas the Indian Prime Minister was accompanied by his National Security Advisor Ajit Kumar Doval and senior officials from the Indian Ministry of External Affairs. Former Minister for Water and Power Khwaja Asif had made a public statement about importing electricity from India but vaguely referred to some technical problems. The recent Indian move about Jammu and Kashmir and the analysis of Prime Minister Imran Khan serve an eye-opener for the ones who may still be under the fascinating and illusion spell of BJP leadership.
