A cross section of the people of the country and Uttarakhand in particular are badly annoyed and disenchanted over the arbitrary registration of murder charges against the major and another trooper of 10 Garhwal Rifles over the firing on the stone pelter crowd in self defence in Shopia, Kashmir by the Mehbooba Mufti led government of Jammu and Kashmir in a first ever attempt by any state police in the history of Indian Army who are tirelessly safe guarding our sensitive borders round the clock and countering the Pak sponsered terrorists hell bent upon vitiating the peaceful atmosphere of the border state and killing our Armymen, the local police and the innocents incessantly.

It’s a well known fact that several hundreds of our army Jawans, para military personels and innocent Kashmiris have fallen to the bullets of these Pak sponsored terrorists during the last several years while bravely and courageously fighting these anti national elements hell bent upon vitiating the traquil and peaceful communal fabric of J&K and the country. However, our valiant Armymen have killed hundreds of these terrorists in Kashmir and destroyed over 150 terror launch pads functioning in Pakistan in its most succesful terror strike.

These Pak sponsored terrorists have been instigating the stone pelters and local youths to act against India and the Army in the name of Jihad through Hawala financial networks and suppying them arms and ammunitions. The Army, Garhwal Rifles and other commands have been relentlessly fighting these terrorists, stone pelters and fidayeens to protect the local Kashmiris in an attempt to rid this strife torn state of these anti national elements.

While in the line of duty the Major and Jawans of 10 Garhwal Rifles were petrolling the strife torn Shophia area in Kashmir valley and were surrounded by a heavy mob of stone pelters and one of the stones’ hit the trooper, causing grievous injury. Seeing the situation going out of control and having been surrounded by the heavy crowd of stone pelters the Garhwal Rifle troopers were compelled to fire in air and self defence purely unintentionally leading to two casualties.

Sources say that had the jawans not fired in self defence their life would have been in total danger having been surrounded very closely by the stone pelting crowd. The Army spokesman said that it was purely the reflex action in self defence with no deliberate intention to harm anybody. But the Mufti Mohammed government and its police arbitrarily registered cases under murderous sections against two personels of 10 Garhwal Rifles, a first ever cowardice attempt against Armymen in India’s history. Though everyone has the sympathy for those killed in this action of self defence but the right thinking people of the country and those who know, how our patrotic Armymen by risking their lives every second in strife torn J&K and the tense borders are 24×7 gaurding our nation and safeguarding countrymen, are badly annoyed, disenchanted and furious over the arbitrary and politically motivated action of the PDP – BJP government led by Mehbooba Mufti.

The Bhartiya Janata Party has also expressed its serious concern and reservation on this issue and is trying to revoke the decision. There is overall resentment and annoyance all over the country and in Uttarakhand over this most uncalled for act against the Armymen of 10 Garhwal Rifles who are protecting our borders and fighting dreaded terrorists day and night risking their lives for our nation’s safety, security and unity.

The Indian Army is standing solidly with the Garhwal Rifles in this hour of crisis and has taken a stand that the firing was entirely in self defence and the situation warranted so. It may be recalled that the Indian Army stood solidly behind Major Lithul Gogoi also last year who tied one of the local Kashmiri youth, stone pelter over his Jeep’s bonnet and petrolled the area which was full of stone pelters. There was tremendous hue and cry all over India, particularly in Kashmir but the Army patted the Major and felicitated him with honours. The case of 10 Garhwal Rifles is now under the charge of the Deputy collector and its being said that an indepth impartial enquiry would be conducted in the matter expeditiously and all the cocerned parties would be heard before arriving at the final verdict.
According to eminent literateur, poet and linguist of Uttarakhand Dr. Satish Kaleshwari: It is shameful act. The Garhwal Rifles is the glory and honour of Indian Army. Discouraging Major Aditya with his ten brave soldiers is insult of the Indian Army. Jai Badri Vishal.

The crisis over the much hyped PADMAVAT MOVIE seems to be over to some extent with the police of various states having shown extensive vigilance and interest in registering cases against hooligans and anti social elements including the Karni Sena volunteers for their involvement in rampaging and destruction of vehicles, properties and even putting the school children at risk in various states and parts of the country, particularly Gurugram, Haryana.

But one thing which, infact is making the people of the country worrisome is the fact that in the states of Gujarat, Rajasthan, Haryana, Madhya Pradesh and even UP the police authorities had not exhibited enough interest to curb the riotous situation and the burning of public properties when hooligans and volunteers of Karni Sena were involved in open violation of the law and order situation by resorting to destruction of public properties and vehicles.

The situation had gone worse to such an extent that some of the bigots have even fixed prices for beheading of the producer and other actors of the film, never ever expected in a civilized society like ours. And what was more shocking is the fact that this destruction and hooliganism went on for days together giving an unambiguous impression that either there was no law of the land due to total police failure to curb this uncontrolled spree of violence or they were deliberately lacking the will and guts to counter the anti social elements perhaps knowing well that they were being allegedly patronized by the political powers at the helm in these states.

However it was finally the apex court of the country whose directives accompanied fruitful results and the police came into action. Had there been vigilant police action earlier as was shown after the Supreme Court’s orders, the situation would have been quite different in various states of the country. The point here is, when the Central Board of Film Certification, the constitutional body of the government dealing with film censorship had given a clear cut green signal for the release of the film after changing its few objectionable scenes and name from Padmavati to Padmaavat, what was the point to continue the violence and put the people and life of the citizens to jeopardy.

Shame on our political parties and their leaders who for the sake of votes and polarisation forget their moral, ethical and constitutional duties to maintain peace and tranquility in the country.

In the case of Padmaavat while no leader of any political party has come forward to speak against Karni Sena due to the apprehension of losing the votes of the Rajput Community which comprises of the major chunk of the entire vote bank, the ruling party BJP in four states , has even after the clearence of the film from censor board refused to show the film in the theatres of their respective states where spree of violence too continued shamefully, finally warranting the intervention of the Apex court of the country. Thanks to our Supreme Court of India that finally they were compelled to give up their orthodox stand on the movie Padmaavat and allow the film’s exhibition in their respective states.

Even leaders of two different parties BJP and Congress – state external affairs minister VK Singh and Digvijay Singh had similar views on the movie as both belonged to Rajput community whereas in actuality both of them could not see each other, eye to eye. Conclusively, we can thank God and our highest court of the land for finally bringing things under control and closing the protracted chapter of destruction, animosity and division of our otherwise peaceful and tranquil society.

One more thing, the Bollywood film Industry was also conspicuous by its absence in supporting Bhansali during the entire episode. I think this was for the first time that the iconic personalities of Mumbai film Industry didn’t come forward in solidarity with Padmaavat cause for the reasons best known to them.

The day since Bhansli was slapped by the Karni Sena Chief and the sets of Padmaavat were destroyed a year or two ago not a single icon of Bollywood has come forward in defence of the movie nor its producers and actors which unambiguously speaks of the fact that its today PADMAAVAT, tomorrow it may be someone else of the industry.

While during the demonetisation phase there were several casualties in various parts of the country, after the GST implementation, the Himalayan state of Uttarakhand also witnessed a horrifying and anguishing incident of a sad demise of a trader namely Prakash Pandey in the Janata Durbar of the Uttarakhand’s agriculture minister Subodh Uniyal in protest against the implementation of the GST and its subsequent repurcussions , implications and negative fall outs by consuming suicide in the public. This is the first incident in the history of the 17 year old incident when any individual has committed suicide in a Janata Durbar of a monister in his very presence.

The victim was addmitted in the private Doon hospital but unfortunately could not be saved due to various reasons, may be because of being inordinately late in taking him to the hospital or due to the negligence of the hospital staff in not giving him proper, adequate and timely emergency treatment.

This most tragic news of suicide by Pandey in public has spread like a wild fire in entire Uttarakhand, particularly in front of a responsible cabinet minister of the ruling party of the state. The questions being asked are: Why was the victim not taken to the hospital in time despite having consumed poision publicly and how come that the so called high profile private hospital not able to deliver adequate treatment to Pandey to save his precious life and what were the onlookers doing who preferred to take his picture and make vedios than to save his precious life.

The questions are infact genuine, transpatent and require adquate answers. Just imagine what would be the condition of the the most aggrieved parents of the deceased who’d lost their young son hardly below forty ? Now, the whole issue seems to have been embroiled in politics giving it a political colour to derive political advantage from this episode. It may be recalled that the Uttarakhand cabinet minister was holding his Janata Durbar as a routine practice hearing peoples’ grievances.

Meanwhile the state’s main opposition party Congress is trying to exploit the situation to its advantage while the ruling BJP government has taken a defensive posture. However, the news and political analysts say that though the demise of Pandey against GST’s aftermath implications, repurcussions and negative fall outs for small and medium traders and Pandey himself being its supposed victim, has sadly led to his tragic death through suicide but the state agriculture minister Subodh Uniyal is in no way responsible directly or indirectly for this tragedy and GST implementation is a central subject, directly under the jurisdiction of Union Finance minister and ministry. Moreover no right thinking person would ever support or subscribe to an act of poision consuming or suicide usually considered to be an act of cowardice as written in one of the facebook posts by an enlightened writer of eminence.

Conclusively, while everyone in Uttarakhand has fullest sympathy with the family of the deceased all are equally perturbed over this act of suicide and the negligent and complacent attitude of the onlookers and the hospital authorities who have not taken enough pain to save the life of the young trader Pandey, who otherwise have been in our midst. Our heartfelt tributes to the departed soul and condolences to the bereaved family.

Meanwhile, Uttarakhand Journalists Forum and Uttarakhand Third Front expreses its deepest anguish over this sad incident and demands an impartial enquiry into the entire episode by the honble retired high court judge to nail the culprits responsible for Pandey’s death for negligence in his treatment and adequate financial compensation to his wife with a job to his son or daughter in the state government.

It may be recalled that the main opposition party of the cpunyry and its leader Rahul Gandhi have been ising the issues of demonetisation and GST in his campaigning in the preceding elections in all the states including Gujarat but could not succeed as BJP under the leadership of Narendra Modi have been on the winning spree since 2014 after cpming to power at the centre.The tragic incident of Prakash Pandey however has given the Congress party a powerful anti government propaganda tool in Uttarakhand which was till now in the defensive as the BJP in the Himalayan state in in absolute majority with no risk of any kind of instability.

After winning the elections of the municipal corporations and councils including grabbing 14 mayoral seats out of total sixteen, giving two to Bahujan Samaj Party with Samajwadi Party and Congress securing a big zero in these current mayoral elections, the political morale of the saint turned politician, five term MP and the current chief minister are so high that he’d already declared the party’s victory as confirmed in the 2019 elections with prime minister Narendra Modi repeating for the second time. Political analysts say that the victory of the BJP in these local elections is primarily due to the excessive mobility, pro people actions and round the clock vigilance of the chief minister and his subordinates against the anti social and criminal elements of the state compounded with his religious and spiritual actions of celebrating the historic Deepawali while publically welcoming the cosmetic Lord Rama and Seeta in Ayodhya and assuring the people of the state on the construction of vexed Ram Temple issue, despite the matter being fully subjudiced.

In a way the prestrategic ploy of BJP and Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath to exploit the passions of the state electorates on majoritarianism as well as development played a crucial role in once more saffronising the entire environment of UP during this civic polls and the fact can be gauged from the reality that it won the municipal elections from religious cities like Ayodhya, Mathura, Varanasi etc with a resounding success compelling the BSP, SP and Congress reach at the brink of political disaster. The tremendously enhanced political morale of the chief minister Yogi after the saffron party’s incessant victories in the last national election winning more than 70 seats out of total eighty in the parliament from UP and thereafter badly defeating the ruling SP in the legislative elections thus coming to power with absolute majority and now winning the state’s municipal and mayoral polls with a resounding victory has led him confidently make the 2019 prediction in favour the BJP and PM Modi.

For Yogi it’s the victory of the pro people policies of prime minister Narendra Modi and for the political analysts it’s primarily the Yogi’s triumph who led no stone unturned to ensure that the staus quo of the victory is maintained. For Yogi Adityanath these results are a clear cut the indication of the unstoppable winning streak of BJP that will continue till 2019 and ensure the BJP’s re comeback at the centre with Narendra Modi as prime minister for the second succesive term.

However, there are also indications in the political circles that the way Yogi Adityanath is proving to be a charismatic leader of the BJP after Narendra Modi the time is not far that his leadership as a prominent Hindu leader within BJP is expeditiously gaining ground and achieving new heights of popularity that may perhaps be a reason of worry for those at the helm in party organisation and the union government. It therefore remains to be seen as to in what perspective the UP CM is assessed in the future, a valuable asset for the party organisation or something else. Is it true friends. What’s your take on this? Is it true friends. What’s your take on this?

The foreign department of the United States of America has a taken a very serious view of the arbitrary release of the the US designated international dreaded terrorist and Lashkare Tayyeba chief Hafeez Sayeed and issued directives to the Pakistan authorities to re arrest and try him for killings hundreds of innocents in India, US and elsewhere, globally in the name of Jehad. It may be recalled that the United States of America has designated Hafiz Sayeed as an international terrorist and have been repeatedly accusing Pakistan of patronising him and several other hard core terrorists by way of openly aiding and abetting them financially and otherwise to run terror sanctuaries in various parts of Pakistan creating havoc globally, killing innocents by sneaking terrorists in various countries of the world, especially the J& K.

The US foreign department’s spokes person said that Hafiz Sayeed is a hard core terrorist involved in the killings of hundreds of innocents and needs to be tried under the severest sections of the law thus putting him behind the bar. It has taken a very serious view of his unconditional release and asked Pakistan authorities to re arrest him forthwith. Meanwhile after his arrest by the Supreme court of Pakistan Hafeez Sayeed was given a rousing reception by the volunteers andhard core activists of the Jamaat Ul Dava including the police officials of Pakistan showing on vedio released by India tv tonight.

While addressing the terrorists and the hard core activists of Laskare Tayyeba at the reception given to him at the Jamait Ul Dawa head quarters in Pakistan Hafeez Sayeed vowed to free Kashmir from the Indian dominion and vowed publicly to leave no stone unturned to continue his Jihad against India by training myriad number of Pakistan youths to wage a war against India to achieve his long termed objective to free Kashmir from the Indian dominion.

It may be recalled that chief of the Lashkare Tayyeba and Jamait Ul Dawa was the chief master mind behind the Mumbai killings in which more than 166 innocent people died including 6 Americans and several Israel citizens. By arbitrarily releasing a hard core terrorist Hafiz Sayeed on whose head there is an unambiguous charge of killings hundreds of innocents in Kashmir and Mumbai it is now absolutely clear that Pakistan is openly supporting, aiding and abetting terrorists and terror sanctuaries and has no respect for the rule of law and international obligations of maitaining peace and tranquility in the Asian subcontinent.

The United States of America’s serious view on Hafiz Sayeed’s release and demand to rearrest him is bound to further deteriorate the already deteriorating relations between US and Pakistan. It the political analysts are to be believed India has played a significant role in pressurising America in asking Pakistan authorities to take the serious view of Hafiz Sayeed’s arbitrary release and instruct its rulers to rearrest him.on the stringent charges of killings and aiding and abetting of terror activities and sanctuaries in Pakistan.
