Why Blame The Indian Soldier??

It was painful and physically revolting to read the thoughts and warped logic of these three: Mr Omar Abdullah, Mr Bandukwala and Mr Praveen Swamy on the Gogoi 'incident (Indian Express-The 'Funded' Newspaper)'. First there is Omar sahib who, between him and his father, have made a mess of the State of J&K resulting in the situation existing today. A man who is totally  confused as to whether he is for 'azadi' or he is for India. Oh yes, for enjoying the Indian democracy, largesse, freedom and for having a good time; India is definitely better, but for votes and popularity--- the Indian State and it's Army are demons, rapists and murderers.Then there are these other two self styled human rights activists --one, a Mr Bandukwala and the other a Mr Praveen Swamy, who have never been either in front of a rifle or behind it and are now trying to teach the Army and the Nation what is right and what is wrong. Have such people ever wondered why  are the soldiers doing policing in the first place?? It is because of the sickening , short-sighted , flawed , corruption laden , self centered policies of politicians and bigoted pseudo intellectuals like them that today a soldier is forced to face his own country men to restore law and order and prevent the country from splitting. But do politicians like Kodiyeri Balakrishnan understand this?? That their beef against the last bastion of unity of this Nation is wrong.

Such 'holier than thou' armchair strategists forget that governance is not the job of an Army. They conveniently forget that human rights of soldiers are supreme and take precedence over the rights of terrorists and separatists. The problem perhaps is that these very men who thump their chests, shed crocodile tears and write unbalanced and putrid items to gain cheap popularity and political patronage, have taken the protection of the Indian Army for granted. These are the men who have no relatives, sons, brothers, daughters who have ever donned a uniform for this Country. But then these are the very dregs of society who are the first to criticise others who take critical and instant decisions under abnormal conditions.
Then we have Mr Kishalay Bhattacharjee (IE May 30, 2017), whose ignorance and utter lack of knowledge about the AFPSA and his skewed interpretation of it's provisions would put a Goebels to shame. Like many including the likes of Kapil Kak(the man is a slur to the uniform he once wore) and Harjinder Baweja (someone who has mastered the art of Yellow journalism)---the lot that very conveniently read out portions of the AFPSA out of context and scream their guts out ---' that the Act contains provisions that grant immunity to members of the Armed Forces who kill people suspected of being militants and that even an NCO has the power to fire upon or otherwise use force even leading to death's' !! How utterly descipable and shallow is the mind set of these people who have never served their Country or have known how the Military functions; it compulsions, it's beliefs and it's morals and it's leadership.
According to article 43, of the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973 “Any private person may arrest or cause to be arrested any person who in his presence commits a non-bailable and cognizable offence, or any proclaimed offender, and, without unnecessary delay, shall make over or cause to be made over any person so arrested to a police officer, or, in the absence of a police officer, take such person or cause him to be taken in custody to the nearest police station.”Going by the warped logic of these self serving intellectuals and 'freedom fighters' it means that this dangerous provision is tantamount to encouraging all Indian citizens to become vigilantes!! By the same logic does it mean that the AFPSA provisions in question are resulting in soldiers, NCO's and officers  of the Indian Army arresting, machine gunning, murdering and killing innocents with impunity and with no questions asked?? A failure at all levels? A rag tag Army without any discipline, accountability , command and control??
And what about the rights of the men in uniform . What about their right of self defence? Should not the soldiers also file hundreds of FIR's-- against mobs, stone throwers, separatists and terrorists and confused politicians who endanger them every day. And should not those people who were rescued from the polling booth by Maj Gogoi file FIRs for attempt to murder against the mob, against the CM J&K and the Top Cop of the State (dereliction of duty and failure to maintain law and order included). What about Article 21/Right to Life of the uniformed man??

Following Operation Dragoon landings in southern France and the collapse of the German military occupation in August 1944, large numbers of Germans could not escape from France and surrendered to the French Forces of the Interior. The Resistance cold bloodedly executed a few of the Wehrmacht and most of the Gestapo or SS prisoners. No one from the allied side, no human rights activists, politicians or columnists at that time or later during the Nuremberg trials spoke of the rights of these murdered soldiers. Just as now many say that the rights of stone throwers and anti nationalists cannot be equated with that of Indian Army soldiers. But do the likes of Prakash Karat, Arunanadhati and Partha Chatterjee sahib(a pseudo-Indian if there was one) understand this??
We have the nation whining and the media going berserk because police stood by as six innocent men ('child lifters
'--- God help us)were lynched two days back. Maybe it would have been better for all if Gogoi too had stood and watched bloodshed and mob violence. In fact he should have given the mob bouquets and quietly walked off-- he is from Assam-- why the hell should he bother about what is happening in J&K. Like wise for the other soldiers serving there for nuts and peanuts. And pray why send soldiers for policing in the first place?? Because people like these three and their policies have failed. Do we want a situation, Mr Omar , Mr Swamy and Mr Bandukwala, where the soldiers will mutiny and refuse to go for police duties? Unfortunately we have paid media and willing 'writers'. What a pity.





 But again, no one is bothered about the sniping and beheading of Indian soldiers and these apologists and peaceniks are more worried about a stone thrower who was tied to a jeep.  Soldiers are generally considered easy game .

 We are fast hurtling to a Vietnam like situation where the unwilling, demoralised and demotivated US soldiers were not being backed by their Country. See what happened. If  politicians, leaders , writers , media and so called activists start vilifying soldiers as such, be prepared,  the day is not far off  and then you can call  O' Dwyer back.

People find Army a convenient, soft target as it is trained to exercise restraint but these people do not have thecourage to call a terrorist a terrorist or condemn the beheadings of Indian soldiers .
A terrorist or a stone thrower is not constrained to follow any rule of law, but a soldier who sees his brother in uniform being targeted  or blown to smithereens is required to show restraint!! It is high time the Nation rose to call the bluff of the so called ‘human rights protagonists and the pseudo-intellectuals’ who seek to promote their politics at the cost of Armed Forces.


Those who have never saluted the tri colour draped coffin of an Indian soldier, have no right to point a finger at Armed forces jawans because of whom they are in a position to conveniently sit in their drawing rooms and issue lofty statements.
