Thank you Kashmiris, thank you Pakistan


I had said several times that India, Pakistan and Bangladesh must reunite, as the Partition of 1947 was a historical swindle and a colossal fraud by the British on the basis of the bogus two nation theory and the wicked divide and rule policy.


Many people called my idea of reunification only a dream, just as many people called Mazzini's vision of a united Italy a dream, or Bismarck's vision of a united Germany a dream. And I too often wondered, while never doubting the correctness of my belief in reunification, how and when it could be practically achieved ?

Now Kashmiris by demanding Azadi, and the Pakistani Govt. by supporting that demand, have solved my problem.

India must first break up and dismember that fake, artificial entity ( I refuse to call it a country ) called Pakistan, by sending arms and other supplies on a large scale to Sind, Balochistan and NWFP, whose people are sick and fed up of Punjabi domination, and rightly and legitimately want azadi.

Thereafter India should persuade these independent countries i.e. Sind, Balochistan and NWFP to voluntarily join India, in initially a confederation, and later, if they so wish, a union, under a secular govt. which while guaranteeing freedom of religion to all does not tolerate religious extremism and bigotry. This govt. of reunited India must then rapidly industrialize the country and ensure a decent life with employment, healthcare, nutritious food, good education, housing, etc to all its citizens.

So thank you Kashmiris and Pakistanis. You have solved my problem, and have shown the practical path to reunification

Jai Azad Sindhudesh, Jai Azad Balochistan


Just as India had helped set up a Mukti Bahini for liberation of Bangladesh in 1971, it should assist the Sind Liberation Army and Balochistan Liberation Army ( which Sindhis and Balochis have already set up ) in attaining freedom from that fake Punjabi dominated entity ( I refuse to call it a country ) called Pakistan.

The Daily Times, a Karachi newspaper reported that on March 23, 2012 in Karachi, hundreds of thousands of leaders, activists and supporters of the Jeay Sindh Qaumi Mahaz (JSQM) attended a freedom march denouncing the Pakistan Resolution and chanting pro Sindhu Desh slogans, with many rallies being present. The paper also reported that processions occurred in many other cities and towns in Sindh. JSQM Chairman Bashir Khan Qureshi expressed his desire for the Urdu-speaking community to integrate with Sindh, calling them "brethren and part of Sindhi nation".

“ The Sindhi nation has been waiting for the last 64 years to secure independence since Punjab has assumed all the powers of the federation, including civil bureaucracy, military and judiciary, while all the resources of Sindh have been placed at the disposal of Islamabad " said Dr Safdar Sarki

Sindhu Desh Liberation Army

The Sindhu Desh Liberation Army or SDLA is an organisation based in the Sindh province comparable to the Balochistan Liberation Army in terms of is objectives strives to establish an independent state of Sindhu Desh. A series of minor blasts took place on railway lines — the attacks carried out between November 2010, and February 2011 were claimed by the SDLA, who left pamphlets on the scene that mentioned “atrocities” being carried out against Sindh and promising to continue their “struggle” till Sindh was granted “freedom”.

The SDLA claims moral inspiration from (BLA) armed struggles in Balochistan, which they term as a response to "Punjabi domination" of the Pakistani state.

Blood and Iron


In a speech delivered in the Prussian Landtag ( Parliament ) in 1862, the great future Chancellor of Germany, Bismarck, said " the great issues of the day will not be decided by votes and speeches but by blood and iron ( blut und essen ) ". He said this when the Landtag members were opposing his request to increase the grants to the military which he needed for unification of Germany.

A similar thing can be said about current developments in India, which beg...inning from Kashmir are likely to spread to,other parts of the country too.

For most of the period after Independence in 1947 politics in India was largely governed by votes and speeches ( though there were some sporadic violent incidents too ). The 'giants' in our national scene were people who could give attractive and seductive speeches about how they would serve the people if elected, but behind the scene indulged in their field of expertise of manipulating caste and communal vote banks, and looting the nation. But now after almost 70 years something fundamental has changed in India, these ' giants' have been exposed as paper tigers, and it has started from Kashmir. The era of ' blood and iron ' has arrived in India, and is going to rapidly replace the era of ' votes and speeches '.

Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti, ex Chief Minister Omar Abdulla, PDP member Mehboob Beg, separatist leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani, J&K Congress Chief G.M. Mir, National Conference spokesman Nasir Aslam Wani, and even the Prime Minister have all been making fatuous appeals for peace, which have all fallen on deaf ears in Kashmir.. Mehbooba Mufti, like a rat cornered by prowling ravenous tomcats, made a pitiful appeal ' for one last chance ', but who listens to her ?.

All these people do not understand the forces at work in Kashmir, and therefore, like King Canute, are trying to push back the oceanic waves. But like an actor who refuses to leave the stage although his role is over, they will soon be pushed out by forces beyond their control.

I am reminded of Napoleon, who was very powerful at one time ( he used to confer crowns on his favourites like a Roman Emperor distributing coins to the populace ), but on reaching Moscow in September 1812 realized that most of his power had gone ( see Tolstoy's ' War and Peace ' ), and he ultimately ended up in St. Helena.

As Shakespeare said in ' King Lear ' : " As flies to wanton boys are we to the gods. They kill us for sport ".

And as Omar Khayyam said in his Rubaiyats :

" They say the lions and the lizards keep the Court where Jamshed gloried and drank deep
And Behram that mighty hunter, the wild ass stamps over his head, but cannot break his sleep "

Now that the era of blood and iron is dawning in India, beginning from Kashmir, we will witness a rapid, qualitative, change in our politics. All our great netas will be thrown into the dustbin

Derecognize that fake country Pakistan : My appeal to the Indian Govt


It is reported today in the media that the Pakistan Prime Minister has appointed 22 members of the Pakistan Parliament to go around the world as special envoys to highlight the Kashmir issue, and he himself will address the U.N. General Assembly about it in September. Thus, it is evident that the Pakistan Govt. is hell bent on escalating the issue

What should our response be ?

I submit that the Indian Govt. should now derecognize that fake, artificial entity ( I refuse to call it a country ) called Pakistan.

As I have pointed out in my article ' The Truth about Pakistan ' ( which was published in the Pakistani newspaper ' The Nation ', and can be seen online and on my blog ), Pakistan was created as a fake, artificial country by the British in pursuance of their wicked divide and rule policy on the basis of the bogus two nation theory, that Hindus and Muslims are two separate nations. http://nation.com.pk/c…/02-Mar-2013/the-truth-about-pakistan

Pakistan is not a country at all. What is Pakistan ? It is Punjab, Sind, Balochistan and NWFP. These were all part of India since Mughal times. When I meet Pakistanis I feel no different from them. We look like each other, speak the same language Hindustani ( called Hindi in India and Urdu in Pakistan ), share the same culture, etc. We were befooled by the Britishers into thinking we are enemies of each other, but how much longer must we remain befooled ?.How much longer must blood flow between Hindus and Muslims ?

Victor Hugo said " There is one thing more powerful than all the armies in the world, and that is an idea whose time has come ".

The idea of reunified India is an idea whose time has come. Pakistan is a fake, artificial entity, and the Partition of 1947 on the basis of the bogus two nation theory was a colossal fraud and a historical swindle, creating enormous problems for the sub continent, under which we are still reeling. We have been fighting each other since 1947, and wasting enormous resources on these fights and tensions, and purchasing billions of dollars of foreign arms, instead of utilizing our resources in uplifting our people from poverty.

I have repeatedly said that 99% Pakistanis are good people, just as 99% Indians are good people. 99% Hindus are good people, and 99% Muslims are good people. We should make a distinction between the Pakistani Govt. and the Pakistani people. It is the Pakistani Govt. not the Pakistani people who are hell bent on creating trouble The Pakistani people are really Indians, they are our brothers and sisters, and like us want to live peaceful lives.

We are really one people, but the British befooled us by their wicked divide and rule policy and bogus two nation theory, which was systematically propagated since 1857 through their agents, into believing that Hindus and Muslims are enemies. But how much longer must we remain befooled ? How much longer must blood flow in our sub continent ?
The time has come to undo the historical fraud and swindle of Partition, and reunite under a secular modern minded government, which rapidly industrializes the country and raises the standard of living of our people. This govt. while guaranteeing freedom of religion to all, must crush religious extremism and bigotry with an iron hand.

Some people say that the idea of reunification is a pipe dream, as Partition took place in 1947, and since then much water has flown. But Germany was reunited in 1990 after its partition in 1945. So time is immaterial when we are really one nation. When Mazzini spoke of Italian unification most people said it was a pipe dream, but this dream became a reality under Cavour and Garibaldi. Bismarck united Germany in 1871.
Others say that there is too much hatred between the people of the two countries to reunite. But this hatred is artificial, and created by false propaganda. Merely because we are of different religions does not mean we are enemies. We share the same culture, and have the same massive problems of poverty, unemployment, malnutrition, lack of healthcare. We should reunite to jointly fight to give our people decent lives, instead of fighting each other.

Since the Pakistan Govt. has decided to up the ante over the issue of Kashmir, let us also pay them back in their own coin by denying the very existence of Pakistan ( and rightly so ) as a genuine country. 

The first step in this direction must be to derecognize Pakistan recall our envoys, and tell theirs to get the hell out of India.

A.S. Dulat is talking humbug


In the website thewire.in an interview with former RAW chief A.S. Dulat has been published about how to solve the Kashmir imbroglio. Mr. Dulat says that the only answer to the Kashmir problem is dialogue, not aggression.

I submit that Mr. Dulat's statements therein are meaningless clichés and platitudes, and are totally superficial, without understanding the realities behind the Kashmir scene, as explained in my blog and facebook post, which is as under :

Prepare for the long haul in Kashmir

Those who think that some political dialogue can resolve the Kasmir problem are living in a fool's paradise. They do not know the realities. So let me explain.

The Kashmiri militants are using sophisticated weapons and other supplies. Where are these sophisticated weapons and supplies coming from ? Such sophisticated weapons and supplies do not fall from the sky. Obviously some outside power is supplying them and training the militants in use of these weapons.

Moreover, these militants demanding azadi are only brainwashed pawns like Burhan Wani and Ajmal Qasab. Pawns are only pieces which the chess player uses in the game. The power which is behind these pawns, the real chess player who is using them is China ( through Pakistan ), as I have explained in my blog

Please go through the above blog carefully in order to understand the real game of China..

I submit that it will take 10-15 years or more to resolve the Kashmir problem, and till then the turmoil, imbroglio and violence will continue, however sad and unfortunate that may be.

As for the demand for azadi, I have already explained in my article published in Huffington Post that 
such azadi will be against the interest of Kashmiris, as it will result in Islamic fundametalism being imposed in Kashmir, which will throw back Kashmir into the dark Middle Ages. The demand is hence totally reactionary. Morever, azadi, even if achieved, will not last long. Kashmir will soon thereafter be swallowed up by Pakistan, and come under the Pakistani military jackboot.

The correct demand for Kashmiris is reunification of India and Pakistan ( and Bangladesh ) under a strong, modern minded secular state which while guaranteeing freedom of religion to all does not tolerate religious extremism of bigotry, whether Hindu or Muslim, and crushes it with an iron hand. 

This reunited state must then rapidly industrialize the country and ensure a high standard of living and decent life to all.

Such reunification will not be easy, it will take 15-20 years, but till then the Kashmir pot will keep boiling

Mr. Dulat makes the following points in his interview :

1. The Indian Govt. should engage in talks. But talks with whom ? Mr. Dulat says we should begin with Hurriyat. But the Hurriyat is a separatist organization which wants Kashmir separated from India, as its leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani has repeatedly said. What is the point talking with them ? As for talks with Pakistan, they will keep harping on azadi for Kashmir. Moreover, Pakistan is a fake, artificial entity ( I refuse to call it a country ) created by the British on the basis of the bogus two nation theory to ensure enmity between Hindus and Muslims even after their departure. So what is the point talking with them ?

Mr. Dulat totally misses the point I have raised in my blog. The Kashmiri militants are using sophisticated weapons and other supplies. Where are these sophisticated weapons and supplies coming from ? Such sophisticated weapons and supplies do not fall from the sky. Obviously some outside power is supplying them and training the militants in use of these weapons.

Moreover, these militants demanding azadi are only brainwashed pawns like Burhan Wani and Ajmal Qasab. Pawns are only pieces which the chess player uses in the game. The power which is behind these pawns, the real unseen chess player who is using them is China ( through Pakistan ), as I have explained in my blog

2. Mr. Dulat says we should follow 'Vajpayee's way', and that the BJP-PDP alliance has angered the Kashmiris.

Again, a meaningless platitude. He says that Vajpayee is revered in the valley. I did not hear a single Kashmiri of today saying we want to follow 'Vajpayee's way' ( whatever the expression may mean ). And to blame the BJP-PDP alliance for the mess in Kashmir is overlooking the underlying realities. There is a strong foreign power, China, acting through its new surrogate, Pakistan, which is obviously covertly behind the Kashmir agitation for azadi.

It is true that a large section of Kashmiris have joined the agitation, but I submit they are being used by China and Pakistan, like mindless pawns used by the unseen chess player.
As for the motive of China, it is given in my blog ' The Kashmiri Separatist Militancy '

If Kashmir becomes azad, do the Kashmiris think they will really be free ? No, the power which has supplied sophisticated weapons, etc to the Kashmiri militants will then demand its pound of flesh, and make Kashmir its neo-colony, and exploit it for its own benefit, not the benefit of Kashmiris.

3. Mr. Dulat talks of 'insaniyat, jamuriyat and Kashmiriyat'. All these are meaningless moral platitudes, conveying nothing, and overlooking the underlying realities, as explained above.

4. Mr. Dulat talks favourably of the 'Musharraf four point formula' which, according to him, was acceptable to all the Kashmiris, including the separatists. It was peace on the line of control, with going and coming and open borders and more interaction between the two Kashmirs, trade, armies pulled back.

So according to Mr. Dulat, we should open the border with POK, and let more militants walk in. The army should be pulled back so that the militants may have a field day, bringing the entire valley under its grip, imposing Islamic fundamentalism and sharia law, which will drag Kashmir back into the dark middle ages. Obviously neither Mr. Dulat nor the Kashmiri agitators for 'azadi' understand this.

Azadi can only be a means to an end, and not an end itself. The end must be raising the standard of living of the people. I have repeatedly said that if it can be demonstrated that azadi will raise the standard of living of the people of Kashmir, i.e. provide large scale employment to the unemployed Kashmiri youth, provide healthcare to Kashmiris, abolish poverty, etc. I will support it. But neither Geelani nor Burhan Wani nor any of their cohorts and associates ever spoke or even thought of that. 
The azadi champions are Islamic fundamentalists who will drag Kashmir back into the middle ages.

I submit that Mr. Dulat's analysis is totally superficial, and entirely overlooks the realities of the situation in Kashmir

The New Jurisprudence


A new marvellous, creative jurisprudence has been developed by the Indian Supreme Court---that it is open to the Court to amend the Constitution, amend the law, make law, exercise executive functions, ignore binding precedents in their desire to do good ( despite the numerous decisions, which have been referred to in my report to the BCCI, which state the contrary )---in short do anything it likes, and to hell with the Constitution and the law.

In a series of decisions of the Supreme Court itself it has been stated that there is separation of powers in the Constitution, and judges should not perform legislative or executive functions as these belong to the other two organs of the state.

Thus, in Divisional Manager, Aravali Golf Course vs. Chander Haas, 2007 ( see online ) the Supreme Court said :
" Judges should know their limits and not try to run the Government. They must have modesty and humility and not behave like Emperors. There is broad separation of powers under the Constitution and each organ of the State the legislature, the executive and the judiciary must have respect for the others and must not encroach into each others domains "

But why should we care for outdated and obsolete principles like separation of powers ? After all, Montesquieu died a long time back. So a new jurisprudence must be developed to give judges the power of Emperors.

In the 2nd and 3rd Judges cases the Court by a judicial verdict substituted the existing Article 124(1) in the Constitution by a totally different provision, introducing a Collegium system for appointing judges unknown to the Constitution, which was described by Lord Cooke as ' a sleight of hand '. Article 368 of the Constitution states that the Constitution can be amended by Parliament by two third majorities in both Houses. But the Supreme Court evidently believes that in the garb of interpretation it can amend the Constitution itself. Good luck to them.
Take another example.

Recognition to new Medical Colleges is to be done by the Central Govt. on the recommendation of the Medical Council of India, vide section 10A of the MCI Act. But the Supreme Court appointed a Lodha Committee, and practically empowered it to ignore the Medical Council of India Act which was enacted by Parliament. And the Lodha Committee is granting recognition, or recommending grant of recognition to the Central Govt.
http://www.thehindu.com/…/oversight-pan…/article9027119.ece…

How can the Lodha Committee grant or recommend such recognition ? There is no provision in the MCI Act which says recognition, or recommending grant of recognition, is to be done by a committee appointed by the Supreme Court.
I had always believed that amendment of an Act of Parliament can only be done by Parliament itself. But the new jurisprudential philosophy developed by our geniuses in the Supreme Court say that the Court can amend it. Bravo !
In the dahi handi case the Supreme Court said that no dahi handi will be more than 20 ft. high, and no one below 18 years of age will participate in it. 

The question to be asked is : was there any law made by the legislature which imposes these restrictions ? If there was none, how could such an order be passed by the Court ?

.Justice Thakur, the CJI, in a speech said that the judiciary intervenes when the executive fails in its duties
http://www.firstpost.com/…/judiciary-intervenes-only-when-t…

But the judiciary also fails in its duty to decide cases expeditiously. Often cases take decades to decide finally. People who get caught in litigation are often weeping because of 'tareekh' after 'tareekh' and no hearing. Also, a large section of the judiciary has become corrupt. So should the executive authorities tell the judges that since you have failed in your duty we will decide cases ? Justice Thakur's argument cuts both ways. Those living in houses with glass windows should not throw stones at others.

In a case relating to the All India Football Federation Justice Thakur threatened that the 'BCCI treatment' may have to be given to the football body.

Why does Justice Thakur not give the 'BCCI treatment' to the judiciary ?
Physician, heal thyself!

Lodha Committee for MCI is flouting the law



The Supreme Court by an order appointed a 3 member committee headed by that Superman, Justice Lodha, to look into the affairs of the Medical Council of India.

The MCI had been established by the MCI Act. Section 10A of the Act states that no Medical College can be set up without the permission of the Central Govt. How that permission is to be obtained is given in the clauses of section 10A, given below :

" 1. Every person or medical college shall, for the purpose of obtaining permission under sub-section (1), submit to the Central Government a scheme in accordance with the provisions of clause (b) and the Central Government shall refer the scheme to the Council for its recommendations.

2. The Scheme referred to in clause (a) shall be in such form and contain such particulars and be preferred in such manner and be accompanied with such fee as may be prescribed.

3. On receipt of a scheme by the Council under sub-section (2) the Council may obtain such other particulars as may be considered necessary by it from the person or the medical college concerned, and thereafter, it may -

1. if the scheme is defective and does not contain any necessary particulars, give a reasonable opportunity to the person or college concerned for making a written representation and it shall be open to such person or medical college to rectify the defects, if any, specified by the Council.

2. consider the scheme, having regard to the factors referred to in sub-section (7) and submit the scheme together with its recommendations thereon to the Central Government.

4. The Central Govt. may after considering the scheme and the recommendations of the Council under sub-section (3) and after obtaining, where necessary, such other particulars as may be considered necessary by it from the person or college concerned, and having regard to the factors referred to in sub-section (7), either approve (with such conditions, if any, as it may consider necessary ) or disapprove the scheme, and any such approval shall be a permission under sub-section (1):"

Clause (7) of section 10A states :

" The Council, while making its recommendations under clause (b) of sub-section (3) and the Central Government, while passing an order, either approving or disapproving the scheme under sub-section (4), shall have due regard to the following factors, namely:-

1. whether the proposed medical college or the existing medical college seeking to open a new or higher course of study or training, would be in a position to offer the minimum standards of medical education as prescribed by the Council under section 19A or, as the case may be under section 20 in the case of postgraduate medical education.

2. whether the person seeking to establish a medical college or the existing medical college seeking to open a new or higher course of study or training or to increase it admission capacity has adequate financial resources;

3. whether necessary facilities in respect of staff, equipment, accommodation, training and other facilities to ensure proper functioning of the medical college or conducting the new course or study or training or accommodating the increased admission capacity, have been provided or would be provided within the time-limit specified in the scheme.

4. whether adequate hospital facilities, having regard to the number or students likely to attend such medical college or course of study or training or as a result of the increased admission capacity, have been provided or would be provided within the time-limit specified in the scheme;

5. whether any arrangement has been made or programme drawn to impart proper training to students likely to attend such medical college or course of study or training by persons having the recognised medical qualifications;

6. the requirement of manpower in the field of practice of medicine; and any other factors as may be prescribed.

7. Where the Central Government passes an order either approving or disapproving a scheme under this section, a copy of the order shall be communicated to the person or college concerned."

Sections 17 and 18 of the Act provide for inspection by the Executive Committee of the MCI and the Council for making inspections to ensure the adequacy of the standards of medical education including staff, equipment, accommodation, training facilities prescribed for giving medical education or on the sufficiency of every examination which they attend.for granting recognition to medical qualifications.

A perusal of these provisions clearly indicate that there are only two bodies involved in granting permission for starting a Medical College and recognition of medical qualifications, i.e.the MCI and the Central Govt. There is no provision for a third body, namely, a committee appointed by the Supreme Court, to be involved in this process.

However, On August 13 the Lodha Committee overturned the Medical Council’s decision denying permission to start/establish 86 new medical colleges for the current academic session starting September 30.

The Lodha Committee, reviewing the MCI’s rejections, granted permission to 26 new colleges out of the 86 rejected by the MCI and promptly sent its recommendations to the Health Ministry, paving the way for the establishment of these colleges.

The Lodha panel has given private medical colleges the permission to teach courses which they had been forbidden from running after being found by the MCI to be lacking the required infrastructure.

While the MCI denied permission to start/establish new colleges on the basis of MCI's team inspection which found the faculty and infrastructure lacking in the colleges, the Lodha panel overturned the MCI decision on the basis of colleges' claims on their websites and affidavits.

The Lodha Committee has asked these 26 colleges to submit an undertaking to the MCI that they would comply with all the norms and won't remain deficient when the new session starts on September 30. The Lodha Committee has also reserved the right to inspect these colleges before or after September 30 and if any non-compliance is found, it can withdraw the permission.

So now the Lodha Committee will make inspections to determine whether the college has the necessary infrastructure, staff, etc, something clearly not contemplated by the MCI Act.

In its order appointing the Lodha Committe to oversee the functioning of the Medical Council the Supreme Court said :
“All policy decisions of the MCI will require approval of the oversight committee. The committee will be free to issue appropriate remedial directions to the MCI.”

The Medical Council of India has been constituted as a statutory body by an Act of Parliament. There is no provision in the Medical Council of India Act stating that policy decisions of the MCI will require approval from a committee appointed by the Supreme Court, or that the committee can issue directions to the MCI.
Thus by a judicial order the MCI Act has been amended. Is this a legitimate excercise of judicial power ? Does the Supreme Court think it can do whatever it likes, and has no limitations, and need not excercise any self restraint ?
I had thought that an Act of the legislature can only be altered or amended by the legislature itself, and not by any other body, but evidently some Judges think otherwise. I had thought that judges must follow the law and pass orders in accordance with it, but evidently some judges, in their zeal to do good, think that they can ignore the law and pass orders on their own fancies.
It has been held by numerous judgments of the Supreme Court itself, many of them 5 judge or 3 judge bench decisions ( I have quoted about 40 such judgments in my report to the BCCI which can be seen on the website bcci.tv ) that judges cannot legislate. These binding precedents are often ignored by some Supreme Judges who lacking all self restraint think that just because they are Supreme Court judges and there is no one above them to correct their errors they can behave like Emperors and issue any fatwa or firman even if it violates the Constitution or a statute or a binding precedent.

We must reunite


Some people agree on principle with my idea of reunified secular India , which includes India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh, but ask how it is to be achieved in practice ? So I will reply
As Victor Hugo said " There is one thing more powerful than all the armies in the world, and that is an idea whose time has come ".

The idea of reunified India is an idea whose time has come. Pakistan is a fake, artificial entity ( see my article ' The Truth about Pakistan ' online ), and Partition on the basis of the bogus two nation theory has created enormous problems. We have been fighting each other since 1947, and wasting enormous resources on these fights and tensions, instead of utilizing our resources in uplifting our people from poverty.

I have repeatedly said that 99% Pakistanis are good people, just as 99% Indians are good people. 99% Hindus are good people, and 99% Muslims are good people.

We are really one people, but the British befooled us by their wicked divide and rule policy and bogus two nation theory, which was systematically propagated since 1857 through their agents, into believing that Hindus and Muslims are enemies. But how much longer must we remain befooled ? How much longer must blood flow in our sub continent ?
The time has come to undo the historical fraud and swindle of Partition, and reunite under a secular modern minded government, which rapidly industrializes the country and raises the standard of living of our people. This govt. while guaranteeing freedom of religion to all, must crush religious extremism and bigotry with an iron hand.

So what must be done to reunify ? This will not be easy, because those who divided us will not allow us to easily reunify. An arduous long drawn struggle will be needed for this.

The first step in that direction will be to propagate and spread the idea that we must reunify if we are to progress. Here is where all patriotic intellectuals, like many of you, are needed. You have to be very patient, and coolly explain to people in India and Pakistan ( and Bangladesh ) why we must reunify. You may face tremendous hostility in the beginning ( as I have faced ). 

You will be told that the idea of reunification is a pipe dream, as Partition took place in 1947, and since then much water has flown. You should reply that Germany was reunited in 1990 after its Partition in 1945. So time is immaterial when we are really one nation.

Others will say that there is too much hatred between the people of the two countries to reunite. You should reply that this hatred is artificial, and created by false propaganda. Merely because we are of different religions does not mean we are enemies. We share the same culture, and have the same massive problems of poverty, unemployment, malnutrition, lack of healthcare. We should reunite to jointly fight to give our people decent lives, instead of fighting each other.

Once this idea of reunification grips the masses in both countries some way of peacefully reuniting will emerge, though how exactly that will happen cannot be predicted
.

Solving the Kashmir problem


Omar Abdullah said recently that to solve the Kashmir problem a political dialogue is necessary.

But dialogue with whom ? Pakistan and the separatists want azadi for Kashmir, so what is the point of having a dialogue with them The Kashmir imbroglio continues, stoked up by Pakistan.

I submit that the Kashmir problem can never be solved until India and Pakistan ( and Bangladesh ) reunite under a secular government.

There are some people who talk of improving relations between India and Pakistan. I submit that these people are living in a fools' paradise.

There can never be good relations between India and Pakistan, because Pakistan was created to ensure that there are hostllities and tension between the two, for two reasons (1) India does not emerge as a modern industrial giant, and thus become a rival to Western industries (2) India and Pakistan remain big importers of foreign arms, thus ensuring sales of arms industries of Western countries, and thus spending huge amounts on purchase of these weapons, money which could be spent on the welfare of our own people. http://www.catchnews.com/…/arms-race-india-s-expenditure-on…

I have said in my article ' The Truth about Pakistan ' ( which was published in the Pakistani newspaper ' The Nation , and is available online ) that Pakistan is a fake, artificial country created on the basis of the bogus two nation theory

What is Pakistan ? It is Punjab, Sindh, Baluchistan, and NWFP, which were all part of India since Mughal times.
When I meet Pakistanis I feel no different from them. We speak the same language, Hindustani ( called Hindi by us and Urdu by them), we look like each other, share a common culture, e.g. love for Urdu poetry and classical Indian music, the same dress and food ( biryani, etc ). In foreign countries Indians and Pakistanis mix and socialize as if Partition has never taken place.

Pakistan was created on the basis of the bogus two nation theory, that Hindus and Muslims are two separate nations. If religion is the basis of a nation, then hardly any nation in the world could survive. Britain will have to be partitioned into about 10 'nations', Anglican, Presbyterian, Roman Catholic,Jewish, Hindu, Muslim, Sikh, etc. So also U.S.A. Russia, France, Germany, etc. Almost all countries have people of different religions.

So what will talks between India and Pakistan achieve ? If there really are good relations between India and Pakistan, then the very purpose of creating Pakistan will cease to exist.

As for talks with separatist leaders, they will only keep chanting ' azadi '.
So what is the solution ?

The solution is reunification of India, Pakistan and Bangladesh under a strong, secular government which does not tolerate religious extremism of any kind and crushes it with an iron hand This reunification, though bound to happen, will probably take a long time, because those who have divided us will not let us easily reunite, and we have to wage a long, arduous struggle to attain this objective. This reunification will automatically solve the Kashmir problem too, but till then the problem will continue.

Some people say that India and Pakistan were divided a long time back and much water has flown since then, and now it is not possible to reunite. They forget that Germany was reunited in 1990 after 45 years of separation, and China has not yet recognized Taiwan.

Many people say that this idea of reuniting is only a dream. But when Mazzini spoke of unification of Italy he was called a dreamer, and yet his dream came true under Cavour and Garibaldi.
Still others say that we cannot reunite because there is great deal of hatred between the people of the two countries.In fact this hatred was artificially created by the British divide and rule policy ( see my article ' The Truth about Pakistan ' ), and with re-education can be eliminated. People of both countries want decent lives, and want to get rid of poverty.

The worst thing in life is poverty, and the test of every system is one and only one : does it raise the standard of living of the people ? 

. India must reunite because the only way to abolish poverty, unemployment and our other socio-economic ills is rapid industrialization, for only with a huge industry will we able to generate the wealth required for the welfare of our people. But for such a huge industry we must have a huge market, because the goods produced have to be sold. Therefore far from dividing India we must reunite if we are to escape from poverty and other social ills. The demand for azadi for Kashmir or any other part of India totally overlooks this, and is reactionary.

We already have thousands of competent engineers, managers, technicians, scientists, etc in our country. Once we reunite we will also have tremendous natural resources and a huge market for a powerful, widespread industry, and this huge industry will generate millions of jobs for our unemployed youth. Only then we will be able to escape from poverty, unemployment, malnutrition, lack of healthcare and our other social ills.
