Its said that "time never remains the same". Well after so many years I got to know what the politicians really need to fear about(other than elections). Its the "J" word. The J for Jaswant's farce had shown how dangerous the J for Jinnah word can be for a politician. Like the Advani did it 5 yrs before, Jaswant singh favouring the founder of Pakistan gave him a nasty blow by his party and the complete society to all the respect he has earned in his 3 decades. From now onwards beware politicians(especially BJP's) before usin the "J" word because you do live in an independent country but the RTI acts are not for you. I mean to say who the hell are you express your thoughts. You dont have any right to do so even if you are right. And if you do so, you will face the same consequence as faced by our ex- defence, finance and external affairs minister Mr Jaswant Singh.
You might be wondering what I really want to say. The scenario of Jaswant singh supporting Jinnah as a more secular person may seem as an insult to the citizens of our country and its independent "first" ministers, but for me the insult is made by the society to the person who kept his views thinking that he is living in a self dependent country. I dont understand what the political books say but I am a juvenile guy and think with this juvenile brain only.All people said a lot to him, he was thrown out from his party, numerous strikes were held, all these thing really hurts a lot rather than Jaswant backing Jinnah. I may be speaking something jabberwocky here but I think I am right may be not fully but upto some extent.
Lets get ourselves into the history otself. Nobody knows who was responsible for the partition which lead to the massive holocaust but completely blaming one person doesnt seem good. If a deep study is done then the english wanted to have the partition to get home something good from their last days. Our own ministers in one way or the other supported the partion. The proposal of Gandhiji to let Jinnah make his own cabinet was not at all given a thought because it would have been a loss to other leaders. Our first prime minister had ignited and was supporting the partition in the punjab region much before these things came into screens. So collectively it was a complete political nuinsance that led to the partition. Hence excoriating Jaswant singh because he felt Jinnah to be right is hardly right. N the person doing these must better get himself into the pages of history and come out with reasons for him to be right.
May be I am wrong but I feel looking everything in a political view is in no way correct. In one hand we want to improve our relationship with Pakistan but on the other hand are impuging on their politicians. Untill now I had thought that I am in an independent country and I can express myself freely but very hard to know that I am wrong.... Feeling sorry for Jaswant singh
Long live India and its citizens.
