Nation mourns Pulwama ~ some reactions ! - moksha dweepam at Thiruvallikkeni

14th Feb (2019) would remain ever a dark day for the Nation ~ we mourn those heroes who were martyred in a dastardly attack  .. .. it is an attack on the Nation, shocking to see the blood and skin of our brethren killed in action. In the wake of the Pulwama attack in Jammu and Kashmir, social media has been flooded with messages paying tribute to the CRPF personnel who lost their lives in the blast.

First Kashmir, it not what it is portrayed it to be ~  it has a glorious history .. ..  Utpala dynasty, a Kashmiri Hindu kingdom, ruled over the Kashmir region from 8th to 10th century CE. The kingdom was established by Avanti Varman, ending the rule of Karkota dynasty in 855 CE.  The cities of Avantipur and Suyapur were founded during the reign and many Hindu temples dedicated to both Vishnu and Shiva.  Pulwama (known as Panwangam in antiquity] is around 40 km (25 mi) from the summer capital of Srinagar. Pulwama is often called the "Anand of Kashmir" or "Dudha-Kul of Kashmir" on account of its high milk production.   The district is famous for Archeological monuments especially those left by Raja Avantivarman.  Kashmir towards the end of last century became barren and devoid as Kashmiri pundits were driven out in pogrom

Things have worsened and on 14th Feb 2019, in a  first major terror attack in three years, more than 45 CRPF personnel were killed in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama district when a Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) terrorist rammed an explosive-laden car into the bus they were travelling in on Thursday afternoon. JeM claimed responsibility for the attack and identified the bomber as a local terrorist.   How many papers had this on this first page and how was it worded – were the terrorists ? – was the killing denounced ? – and did they Pak was behind !! – now you know your media and those Secularists who had ‘save Syria’ in their profile ! – how many of them have ‘our Army or save Kashmir’ in their profile now.  We have been following some false heroes for their tinseldom actions and believing them to be good – how many of them tweeted condemning the killings – where are they hiding ? – why so many are silent – has not the killing shaken them !!  - sad.

India today withdrew the Most Favoured Nation (MFN) status it had accorded Pakistan in trade in a move to “isolate’’ the country following Thursday’s terrorist attack in Pulwama in Jammu and Kashmir that killed about  CRPF officers. “The government will now identify items imported from Pakistan on which duties can be raised since it is no longer bound by the MFN rules. Other measures such as import ban and port restrictions will also be considered. This exercise will be carried out at the highest level,” a government official  communicated. 

Massive anti-Pakistan protests rocked different parts of the country in the wake of the Pulwama terror attack in which at least 37 Central Reserve Police Force personnel lost their lives. It was organized at Thiruvallikkeni too ~ surprisingly Police denied permission for a procession till neighbouring Thiruvatteeswaranpet and denied usage of mikes too.

             In Jammu, demonstrations and candle light marches were held at dozens of places. Another protest took place in Bhopal by the workers of the Bharatiya Janata Party, who also expressed their grief over the loss of lives.  There were many in every other part of the Nation. At Thiruvallikkeni divyadesam at 7.15 pm, Hindu Munnani organized a walk mourning the death of Indian soldiers, condemning Pak and terrorism, and all those who support terrorist organizations.  The procession wound through the mada streets and ended with ‘moksha dweepam’ lit in front of the Temple.

The Jaish-e-Mohammad, the consistent author terrorist  attacks in Kashmir, has shaken off the shackles placed on it by prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s government in Pakistan. This sunrise will have consequences in Kashmir, and beyond. Pulwama attack ominous sign for Valley as US withdrawal from Afghanistan may mean advantage Pakistan.  Pakistan is being rewarded by the Donald Trump administration for sponsoring cross-border terrorism. The deal with the Afghan Taliban is not possible without Rawalpindi’s support. Behind the words lie a lethal reality: for months now, the Jaish has been blossoming in Prime Minister Imran Khan’s not-so-naya Pakistan, systematically expanding its infrastructure and capabilities. A day after 40 CRPF jawans were martyred when explosive-laden SUV rammed into one of the buses out of a 70-vehicle CRPF convoy in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama district, Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu said: "Terrorism has no religion, no nation". Sidhu also said only talks can resolve India's differences with Pakistan. Sidhu's comment is in sharp contrast to what his party earlier put up on media, though Congress is known to speak in too many voices.

Attacking Sidhu for he what he deemed an "inappropriate comment", retired Major General GD Bakshi said Sidhu has not faced what the CRPF has, what men in uniform routinely do in conflict areas. Bakshi called Sidhu's comment "shameful". He is not only receiving a backlash from his opponents, but also from Twitterati who are asking fans to boycott The Kapil Sharma Show and Sony TV to kick Sidhu out of the show.  .. concluding about the media, a  Deputy News Editor of NDTV tweeted against the Nation supporting Jaish and NDTV promptly suspended Nidhi Sethi  for 2 weeks – that speaks volumes of what they are !!

Irrespective of what the famed cine stars of Bollywood and Tamil tinseldom tweet or be silent,  paying no heed to those campaigners of ‘save Syria’ – we mourn the death of the great sons of the motherland who have once again given their present to save our future.  This day, if you had eaten well and going to sleep well, it is because of such great souls and it is our bounden duty to mourn them.

Jai Jawan .. .. long live our soldiers – Mera Bharat mahan hai.

With regards – S. Sampathkumar
