War Heroes to Return their Medals

via Kuru published on June 16, 2008


Armed forces are vital for the defence of any country that wants to survive as an independent nation. Those who do not realize this basic fact are once again inviting the yoke of slavery besides surrender of territory. We expected the rulers of

India

to have realized one fact, that their country holds world record in slavery that lasted centuries, not just a few decades as in the case of Russians in the

Soviet Union

. Obviously, though unknown to the gullible and simple people of

India

, their rulers are in unspoken collusion with the enemy and actually wish to rundown, weaken, ruin. destroy and finally see the same flag flying over Dehli that flies over

Lahore

and

Karachi

today.

 


All decent, honourable and strong nations value and recognize the services of their armed forces, ensure their well-being and morale, celebrate their victories and regard them as an essential part of the nation.

 


In

America

the armed forces are held in the highest esteem and in

Britain

all members of the Royal family have served in the armed forces, proudly wearing uniform. In contrast we never saw Nehru, MK Gandhi, Sanjay and Rajiv considering even a brief spell as a combatant in the armed forces of their country. They became notorious for committing wrong deeds.

 


The biggest disservice, if not treachery, towards our armed forces is the imposition of Gandhian ethos upon the ignorant and brainwashed nation. The result is that a career in armed forces is not considered decent in accordance with that ethos of non violence.

 


The first result of that useless, rather lethal, ideology was withholding the armed forces when

India

was attacked by the enemy from within, and was forced to surrender five provinces overnight.

 


As a further blight the nation was never allowed to identify the enemy. There rose chants of “Bhai Bhai” while our brave armed forces were ordered to withdraw from entire Eastern and

Western India

. It was a rout, not a leisurely withdrawal. Our leaders churned us all in the cauldron of deception and called the biggest defeat and surrender “

Independence”

. There has never been even a voice in favour of designating August 15 as Surrender Day.

 


Armies need victories for the upkeep of their morale and combat spirit. The record of so-called victories in

India

is dismal. It actually amounts to degradation and demoralization of the armed forces. Here are some instances that ought not to be ignored.

 


As mentioned above the armed forces were held back on

August 15, 1947

to deny them the first victory by repulsing the Islamic attack on our secular ethos, ideology and territory. They were submerged in shame overnight while Jawaharlal Nehru was seeing the glow of his freedom.

 


Thereafter, the army was withheld in the cruelest manner just when they were advancing and recovering our own territory in

Kashmir

. It was the second step taken towards their demoralization.

 


Everyone knows what happened subsequently. All wars ended in cease-fire, further demoralizing our armed forces. The only instance of victory over

East Pakistan

was turned into defeat when Prime Minister Indira Khanum returned the conquered territory back to the enemy.

 


Did she not know that the enemy does not return even an inch of territory that they capture from

India

?

 


Frankly, while Bandit Nehru had to be stood before the firing squad, his daughter, too, had to be tried for High Treason against her secular

India

and for her betrayal, and insult, of our armed forces.

 


Taking advantage of gullibility and loyalty of the nation our rulers and leaders have continued their neglect and apathy in many other ways.

 


It is no secret that the jawans have been ill equipped, ill clothed and ill led. The armed forces have been acutely short of officers. Even the artillery guns were bought to enrich the then Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi. That deal made him “Bofors Chor” while the case against him cannot be tried to its conclusion.

 


The army has been kept in poorly built quarters in

Jammu & Kashmir


State

and often in leaking and torn tents. Promotion of senior offices was not on merit but connections.

 


Though the President is also the Supreme Commander when did we ever see him/her go to operational areas to address the Jawans, and when did he/she attend the funeral of an officer in the combat zone? When did this so-called Rahstrapati (President) ever propose or suggest an Army Day or Victory Day?

 



What about their emoluments? These have not kept pace with inflation. The 6th Pay Commission Award has caused such resentment that at last the retired servicemen and women have united to raise their voice for the deaf political leadership in Partitioned India (Bharat).


 



At present the resentment is so widespread and strong that the winners of awards for gallantry and bravery have decided to return these to the President. There can be no bigger snub to their present female Supreme Commander who is not seen to lift her finger for the restoration of pride and honour of the armed forces under her command.
