Congressmen – Na Italy Ka, Na India Ka

Look at some of the news reports/reactions from Congress introspection meeting after it was routed out in the Gujarat elections.

Heads are unlikely to roll in Congress suggesting that there should not be any blame game as all are equally responsible.

How all are equally responsible? When party wins its because of Sonia and Rahul! When it loses all are equally responsible?

I demand that Sonia and Rahul resign from whatever positions they are holding in the Congress party owing moral responsibility for the defeat. They were the star campaigners in Gujarat who were parachuted from Delhi 14 times and did road shows and circus on the streets of our Gujarat.

Congress Committee General Secretary B K Hariprasad has said that “You should take the resignations if anyone has faulted somewhere”. Mr Hariprasad, cant you see Sonia faulted by calling Modi “Maut Ka Saudagar”? Take her resignation now.

Another Congress leader A K Antony has said, “It is not easy to win Gujarat”. Mr Antony, going forward its not easy to win anywhere in India as long as you have Sonia and Rahul in the party.

Now comes the masterpiece of news items in this list, which says,

Another senior leader expressed regret to Gandhi, who had addressed as many as 14 meetings during the last several months in the state, for letting her down in the crucially important state.

Who let down whom? What the heck? Does he think he is Gujarat? Gujaratis kicked out Congress. Why does he think that just because Sonia addressed 14 meetings we should vote for Congress? Modi attended over 100 meetings, and we would have still voted for him even if he had attended none, and we would not have voted for Congress even if Sonia had attended 1000 meetings. Got it?

Now my message to this senior leader who expressed regret to Sonia for having let her down is, resign from the party taking moral responsibility to the defeat and retire from politics.

Now again, the greatest masterpiece news item.

Another central leader said that “Any Central leader going to Gujarat was told the does and donts by the local partymen which included not to attack Modi and not to raise the issue of Sachar Committee report on Muslims.”

“Not to attack Modi”.. he he he.. Congressmen are so scared of him…
“Not to raise sachar committee report”.. and abhishek manusinghvi kept screaming to the top of his voice on the english media channels saying there is nothing called “Soft Hindutiva” by Congress in Gujarat.


Why am I a Hindu?

There is a fundamental difference between saying “I am a Hindu” and between saying “I am a Christian or a Muslim”

When a person says “I am a Muslim” or “I am a Christian”, there is no place for any other religion. Islam does not believe in other religion and calls non-believers using a derogatory term called kafirs. Christianity says that if you are not a christian then you will go to hell. Forget about going to hell, if you are not a Hindu, then you are already IN HELL.

When a person says “I am a Hindu”, it means there is equal space for all other religions too. Hinduism never asks people of other religion to convert to itself, for it believes that all religions are one and the same. The core message of Hinduism is that God is one and different people call him with different names. So when I say “I am a Hindu”, I also mean that “You can be a Christian, You can be a Muslim”. Not the same case with other religions like Christianity and Islam which want to convert whole world into their respective religion.

So the core message is that if all religions should continue to exist in the world, then Hinduism should be the most dominant religion on this planet, because it allows every other religion to exist. This universal brotherhood is the reason why I am a Hindu. This is also the reason that why all should fight for the cause of Hinduism to make sure that all other humans can continue to live with their own beliefs and religion, as long as they dont intrude into others. In other words, no missionary or forced conversions should be allowed, nor religious laws should be implemented in public domain like in islamic countries. Keep religion as a private affair. Problems start when we mix politics with it.
