Prashant Bhushan’s tryst with treachery

published on January 11, 2014

After Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru’s Historic Speech of “Tryst With Destiny”Speech in the Constituent Assembly on the Day of Our Independence on August 15 1947, The Aam Aadmi Party’s (AAP) Senior Party Man Prashant Bhushan, covered himself with Glory through his great Utterance to this effect: “We should have a referendum in Jammu and Kashmir to ascertain and decide as to whether the People of Jammu and Kashmir want the Indian Army to handle the Problem of Internal Security in Jammu and Kashmir.”

THE WHOLE COUNTRY KNOWS THAT PRASHANT BHUSHAN IS A WHISTLE-BLOWING ANARCHIST WHO EARNESTLY BELIEVES THAT TO BE TREASONABLE IS REASONABLE AND TO BE REASNOABLE IS TREASONABLE.

I have no doubt that Thomas Carlyle(1795-1881), that great Saint, Sage and Seer — Venerable, profound and Irrepressible — of Victorian England, had Traitors like Prashant Bushan in mind when he wrote as follows in his famous Work ON HEROES AND HERO WORSHIP(1841) .

“It is not Honest Inquiry that makes Anarchy; but it is Error, Insincerity, Half-Belief, and Criminal Untruth that make it.”

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) wants absolute Power. Aravind Kejriwal and Prashant Bushan (And other leading Lights of AAP) are working in concert to create conditions of Uncontrolled and Uncontrollable Anarchy in India as a Planned Stepping Stone to Absolute Power. The Innocent Common People living in Delhi are going on the same path of Self —Destruction as the Common People of Germany when they blindly supported Adolf Hitler in 1933!

Treacherous men like Prashant Bushan have nothing but unconcealed contempt for the hundreds of Army Officers and Jawaans who have laid down their lives for the Security of their Motherland in Jammu and Kashmir during the last 6 Decades and more. I would like to pay my humble tribute to our Brave, Patriotic and Selfless Armed Forces in Jammu and Kashmir through the following Glorious Poems.

“And they who for their country die
Shall fill an honoured grave,
For glory lights the soldier’s tomb
And beauty weeps the brave.

– Joseph Rodman Brake(1795-1820)

“A glorious death is his
Who for his country falls”
                                                      – Homer in his “Iliad’ in 1000 B.C.
With proud thanksgiving, a mother for her children,
England mourns for her dead across the sea.
Flesh of her flesh they were, spirit of her spirit,
Fallen in the cause of the free.
Solemn the drums thrill; Death august and royal
Sings sorrow up into immortal spheres,
There is music in the midst of desolation
And a glory that shines upon our tears.
They went with songs to the battle, they were young,
Straight of limb, true of eye, steady and aglow.
They were staunch to the end against odds
uncounted;
They fell with their faces to the foe.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years contemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
They mingle not with their laughing comrades again;
They sit no more at familiar tables of home;
They have no lot in our labour of the day-time;
They sleep beyond England’s foam.
But where our desires are and our hopes profound,
Felt as a well-spring that is hidden from sight,
To the innermost heart of their own land they are known
As the stars are known to the Night;
As the stars that shall be bright when we are dust,
Moving in marches upon the heavenly plain;
As the stars that are starry in the time of our darkness,
To the end, to the end, they remain.

                               
                                                  – Laurence Binyon (1869-1943)

I AM FULLY AWARE OF THE FACT THAT ADDRESSING SUCH MOVING POEMS TO MEN LIKE PRASHANT BUSHAN IS LIKE DROPPING FLOWER PETALS INTO THE GRAND CANYON AND WAITING FOR THE ECHO!!

The Leaders of the AAP speak in Multiple Tongues! Aravind Kejriwal has given Two Takes on the Historic Pronouncement of Prashant Bushan on the Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA) in Jammu and Kashmir. Let us hear Aravind Kejriwal:

1.    “We don’t agree with what Prashant Bhushan said about Kashmir, it’s his personal view.Whatever the Army wants to do regarding deployment, there is no question of a Referendum on it. We do not support Prashant Bhushan’s Statement.”

2.    The AAP later read out a clarification on behalf of Mr Bhushan: “AAP is of the view that Kashmir is an integral part of India. I share this view.”

Mr Bhushan had earlier said on NDTV’s “We The People” that in keeping with participatory democracy, locals in the Kashmir Valley should be allowed to determine whether they want the army for internal security or not. “It is very important to take the wishes of the people into consideration about their own security,” he said.

I fully endorse the view of Arun Jaitley that “Issues of national security cannot be decided by populism or referendum. They can only be decided on security considerations.”

Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah has rightly tweeted:
“Governments get a mandate to govern and decide, they don’t need to conduct a referendum before every tricky decision. Leaders must lead.”

General Bikram Singh, former Chief of Army Staff, has rightly stated  “The Repeal of Armed Forces (Special Powers) Act (AFSPA) in Jammu and Kashmir would only be an open invitation to Chaos and  Anarchy”

I am fully aware of the fact that Mighty Leaders — Nay Almightly National Leaders — like Prashant Bhushan and Aravind Kejriwal would accuse me of Treason for being Superstitiously and Communally Patriotic. To such great Patriots , I would like to give my answer by Quoting the following beautiful poem by a great Australian poet Ian Mudie(1911-1976) which I have suitably adapted to suit my context:

If This Be Treason
                                     Ian Mudie (1911-1976)

So this is Treason, that a love of land
strengthen and circle in our hearts
through every hour of the day?
So this is treason, that our minds
should stir to none but native breeze,
that we should dream of unity
and our land’s high purpose,
that we should see
a national future
triumphant in our song,
that we should be
willing servants
OF BHARAT MATA’S DREAM?
If this be treason, then let every tree
fall to the axe, let all brave flowers
wither in traitorous disgrace.
If this be treason, then the very earth
offends against the state,
and every stick and stone
plots order’s overthrow,
assassination breeds
in every waratah, the wattle’s sabotage
broods on every golden hill.

IF LOVE OF LAND A DASTARD TREASON BE,
THEN BLACK GLOWS THE SUN AND SOLID IS THE SEA.
