Afzal Guru-JNU row: Rahul Gandhi's remarks "insult" to nation, says BJP
Source: zeenews

New Delhi: BJP on Saturday accused Rahul Gandhi of "insulting" the nation for charging the government with suppressing students' voice in the JNU row and alleged that he was supporting "anti-national" forces and speaking the voice of LeT founder and terrorist Hafiz Sayeed.

The party said the Congress vice president's comments amounted to supporting those students who had allegedly raised slogans in favour of Pakistan and terrorists.

"What kind of ideology is Rahul Gandhi supporting? The ideology that says 'Pakistan zindabad' and 'Bharat ki barbadi tak, jang rahegi jang rahegi' (Till the downfall of India, we will fight) is anti-national. His remarks are an insult to the nation, our Constitution and legal system. It shows his mental bankruptcy.

"Rahul Gandhi and his friends are speaking in the voice LeT terrorist Hafiz Sayeed who had tweeted in support of anti-India event in JNU. It is an insult to our martyrs and armed forces who sacrifice their lives on the border and will boost the morale of anti-national forces," party national secretary Shrikant Shamra said.

He said Gandhi kept quiet when anti-India slogans were raised in JNU and when police took action then he rushed to JNU to use students as a tool for political benefits.

"Congress spokespersons are on record questioning the lack of action after the event in JNU. But once legal action was taken, he is speaking the voice of Hafiz Sayeed. It shows how low the party can stoop to for political interests," said Sharma.

Taking a dig at Gandhi, BJP spokesperson Nalin Kohli said

he had given a new definition to nationalism by attacking those who had suppressed anti-national voices.

"These shouting anti-national slogans are new kind of nationalists in Rahul Gandhi's definition and the people who suppress these voices and take action are anti-nationals. This is the message he seems to be giving," he said.

Sharma said Rahul Gandhi should fight the political battle with BJP on development agenda and not use educational institutions for political purposes.

"We condemn his actions. JNU has produced many intellectuals and bureaucrats. A handful of people there have given anti-India speeches. Law is taking its course. BJP will urge Congress to not insult our martyrs for political reason," he said.

Referring to the recent deaths of army personnel, he said it was unfortunate that while soldiers sacrificed their lives on the border, anti-India slogans were raised and terrorists hailed as martyrs in an institution like JNU.

Another BJP spokesperson Sudhanshu Trivedi said efforts to give "ideological cover" to violence and anti-India activities cannot be allowed.

"The way foul language was used against the Prime Minister...A group of students is trying to damage the dignity of an institution like JNU in the name of cultural agitation," he said.

Rahul Gandhi told to change his name to Rahul Afzal Guru
source: saakshi news

BJP Telangana president G Kishan Reddy strongly criticized AICC vice-president Rahul Gandhi for backing terrorist Afzal Guru.
He taunted Rahul Gandhi to change his name to Rahul Afzal Guru or Rahul Yaqub Memon.

Talking to mediapersons, he said the support of the Congress and the Left parties to anti-national forces in the Jawaharlal Nehru University has shocked the nation. He said the support for anti-national terrorist forces was being drummed up according to a well laid out plan.

He asked if the Congress backed pro-Pakistan slogans. The BJP would organise Jan Swabhiman Abhiyan to expose the anti-national forces as part of which rallies and dharnas would be organized across the state on February 19, 20 and 21.

Deconstructing anti-nationalism
By Surjit S Bhalla | The Financial Express

As the nation stands conflicted over the JNU anti-national case, it is worth reviewing the antecedents of what happened. The demonstration that was to be held at JNU was in honour of Afzal Guru, the terrorist implicated in the attack on Parliament on December 13, 2001. This is the third year since his hanging by the UPA government on February 9, 2013.

Why would anyone consider holding a vigil for a convicted, and hanged, terrorist? Because of the legal murkiness associated with the case. Two facts surrounding the case are noteworthy: first, that there was a confession by Guru, which the Supreme Court found unreliable and stated that “it is also contended that the language and tenor of the confessional statement … was a tailor made statement of which they had no knowledge” (Para 174, Supreme Court Judgement). Therefore, “all these lapses and violations of procedural safeguards guaranteed in the statute itself impel us to hold that it is not safe to act on the alleged confessional statement of Afzal and place reliance on this item of evidence on which the prosecution places heavy reliance” (Para 185, Supreme Court Judgement).

Second, the evidence used to convict Guru was all circumstantial. There is nothing per se wrong about using circumstantial evidence to convict a person, but there does seem to be a problem with the death sentence for a conviction that is just based on circumstantial evidence. But seriously, would demonstrations in favour of Guru have any credibility if the evidence was substantially more than circumstantial? My guess: No.

Now, we move to the JNU campus on 9 February 2016. Permission to ex-members of the Democratic Students Union (DSU) to hold this “pro-Afzal” demonstration was granted by the newly installed vice-chancellor, M Jagadesh Kumar, a former IIT professor. But, for reasons not clear at present, Jagadesh Kumar agreed to a petition by ABVP representatives to overturn his own permission to DSU, just half an hour before the “cultural event”.

At this stage, JNU administrators are in the dock for misusing their authority. Perhaps it is inexperience on the part of the vice-chancellor who had never held any administrative job before; perhaps it was the “imagined” clout of the ABVP—the safe conclusion is that at this stage JNU vice-chancellor was wrong in cancelling the DSU demonstration. The DSU said fine, we will hold our demonstration at the local campus dhaba. If students can’t convene at a dhaba to discuss politics over coffee, then this is not a campus anybody will attend.

Things get messy and confusing from this point onwards. The meeting was held, several other student unions and outfits (JNUSU, SFI, etc.) joined in the demonstration/discussion/speeches. The ABVP members also came to this meeting, but the antagonisms present led to predictable shouting and sloganeering. No sedition here, or anything out of campus-ordinary. The problem—the problem—is that repulsive anti-Indian slogans were raised. i.e., destruction of India (Bharat ki barbaadi). In addition, there were baiting slogans like Pakistan Zindabad (also heard on the cricket field) and slightly more problematic, one proclaiming Afzal Guru to be a “martyr”. However, there is no evidence to suggest that any of the DSU students were involved in the destruction of India slogan.

Note that there is no version that indicates that the person arrested, Kanhaiya Kumar, participated in any of this sloganeering. Apparently, the slogans were the dirty work of a non-student Kashmiri group—however, it is the job of the police to find this truth. The next day (February 10) , was another normal JNU day with speeches galore, including one by Kanhaiya Kumar, who made a speech in Hindi and the translation of which is available with The Indian Express (goo.gl/bDNTWl). I have read this speech, and quite honestly, it is no different than thousands of such speeches, made by thousands of college students, over hundreds of years and in scores of countries. Again, if such speeches did not exist, one would have to invent them for the sake of the honour of young and “middle-aged” students like the 27-year-old Kumar. Read the speech—is this what constitutes sedition—or is his crime that he made a lame speech, or is his crime that he is a scapegoat head of the JNU students union? The people who have a genuine complaint against Kanhaiya Kumar are the thousands of students who have made similar speeches across the world and across time. So, yes—complain about plagiarism—not much else.

But the inept handling started by VC Jagadesh Kumar is continued by other representatives of the BJP party, and administration—a bungling of capital proportions if you will. First to weigh in was the Union minister for HRD, Smriti Irani, who, as is customary for her, invoked religion—this time the Hindu goddess of learning, Saraswati—and said that “the nation will never tolerate insult to Mother India”. If this was not over-the-top enough, home minister Rajnath Singh invoked the name of Hafiz Saeed, ace Pakistani terrorist, and stated that “The incident at JNU has received support from Hafiz Saeed. This is a truth that the nation needs to understand.” [This “truth” was based on what now transpires to be a fake Hafiz Saeed twitter account].

Meanwhile, Kanhaiya Kumar gets arrested and is to be produced in court on charges of “sedition”. But the gang that couldn’t shoot straight continues to bungle and flounder like a fish out of water, or if you prefer, a headless chicken. Lawyers, in full view of the world, attack journalists and other lawyers at Patiala House in the name of “nationalism”. If this was a film, it would be a black comedy along the lines of Charlie Chaplin’s The Great Dictator. Let us call it the Dictatorship of Nationalism. Unfortunately, this is not theatre or cinema—it is real life, and shocking for all Indians to witness.

It is difficult to communicate with Saraswati, but can you imagine the goddess of knowledge not allowing a debate on patriotism? The Hindu tradition is to practice the religion at home, within self, rather than on the streets. Ditto should be the case with patriotism. Each individual has her own definition of god, and likely their own definition of patriotism. I agree asking for the death to the country does not come under any definition of patriotism, and it would behove the government to confront the individuals who uttered these words, and “arrest” them for violating the peace of the campus.

On the other hand, it is very curious that the Delhi police (or the home ministry) has to date not determined the identity of individuals who made the objectionable statement(s). Nor have the violent lawyers been charged with a crime, let alone arrested. Identity known, motive known, crime known—and yet no action taken for the blatant violation of law, legal practice, and common humanity.

Note the contrast in how the government is handling the two “crimes”. One capital crime is a student leader, making a common pedestrian student speech, who is being charged with sedition; the other non-criminals are violent lawyers, who have broken the law, who have beaten up journalists and fellow lawyers, and who are being lauded by the cops and, so far, been allowed to go free by the Modi administration.

How difficult is it to get this right? Not very. A few days after the incident (February 13), I tweeted twice. First, that “All who protested against Vietnam war in America raise their hand? The whole world will be in jail if logic of #JNUCrackdown followed”; a few hours later, the following “After 50 years of observation & some participation—it never pays to mess with students—benign neglect is ethically & politically correct”. Students, or anybody else for that matter, should be allowed to pontificate what they want, as long as there isn’t a crime involved—and mere words do not constitute a crime. The Modi administration may or may not agree with my first tweet—but I hope they recognise that there is much history, and much that is correct, with the second tweet. Let barking students bark.

A popular bar had a new robotic bartender installed, who could not only serve drinks efficiently but also converse with the customers intelligently on a variety of topics.

A guy came in for a drink and the robot asked him, "What's your IQ?"
The man replied, "160."
Robot said: hmm, Scientist?
Man replied: Yup, "Astrophysicist"
So the robot proceeded to make conversation about the Grand Unified Theory of Universe of Stephen Hawking while serving him drinks.
The man listened intently and exclaimed, "This is absolutely great"

Another guy came in for a drink and the robot asked him, "What's your IQ?"
The man responded, "120."
Robot said: Professor?
Man said: "Thinker"
So the robot started talking about the controversies surrounding various Religions and faiths.
The man thought to himself, "Wow, this is fantastic."

A third guy came in to the bar. He was a white looking Indian. As with the others, the robot asked him,
"What's your IQ?"
The man replied, "15"
The robot paused for a while and then said, "So, how are things in Amethi these days?"

A local FM Radio was running a contest, and I phoned up. The RJ said, "Congratulations on being our first caller, all. you have to do is answer the following question correctly, to win our grand prize."

"That's fantastic !" I shouted in delight.

"Feel confident ?" she asked. "It's a math question."

"Well, I've got a Masters in math and have been teaching math for 35+ years now," I proudly replied..

"Ok then, to win our grand prize of 2 front row seats for Rahul Gandhi's speech and to meet him back stage .... What is 2+2 ?"

I replied, "7" . . . . . .
