JAWANS BETRAYED BY NEHRU
If we look back (some of us still can!) to 1947 we shall discover the horrendous truth that Nehru loved the Muslims but hated the Hindus.
It was on that basis alone that he accepted Partition without imposing a single condition on the enemy. Nehru was neither bothered about the territorial integrity of India nor about the safety of Hindus and Sikhs who were going to be slaughtered by the Muslims. In fact, Nehru signed the Document of Surrender of India (Partition) so nonchalantly that beggars belief.
He ought to have realized the implications of one-sided collapse and surrender and discussed these with colleagues or Hindu leaders. After the Noakhali massacre in August 1946 and the Rawalpindi massacres in March 1947 he ought to have known the fate of the Hindus that would be trapped under the bloodthirsty “Sword of Mohammed of Mecca”.
What safeguards did he demand from his former friend and colleague Mohammed Ali Jinnah for the safety of our people who were going to live on the other side of the devil’s (lethal) divide?
It’s a great pity that when it comes to recording those accounts of treatment of Hindus at the hands of our former fellow citizens the Hindus are no match to the brave Jews who have done tremendous hard work and painstaking research to record the name of each and every one who perished in the concentration camps set up by the NAZIS. The government of India is callous with regard to Hindu lives and dignity just like the alienated Nehru and his offspring.
However, sometimes by some good chance one does get a peep into those days. Among millions of heart rending and hair raising accounts of the families escaping death we have one more.
This is about the life of a British officer, late Lt Gen Stanley Menezes. It gives us a unique insight into how our betrayed Bharat suddenly became “Hell for Hindus”.
Lt Gen Stanley Menezes was one of the few remaining British officers who served in the Indian Army before and after Partition.
In August 1947 he was caught up in fighting (Yes, FIGHTING against the “misguided children” of Bapu Gandhi!) on the North West Frontier immediately after the (ILLEGITIMATE) birth of Pakistan.
As the Army was being divided up between India and Pakistan, some units found themselves on the wrong side of the hastily drawn border.
The 3rd Battalion Indian Grenadiers was caught at Thal Fort in the Kurram Valley. The Commander-in-Chief of the newly formed Pakistan Army, General Sir Frank Messervy, believed that it would be safe to bring the battalion to India by train, but on reaching the Usterzai Defile, the line was found to be blocked with boulders which had been rolled down the hill by hostile local tribesmen.
Firing began with rifles and machine guns, decapitating soldiers in the train compartments, while the train crew fled for shelter. After two hours Menezes, then an acting major, managed to get the boulders removed from the track and persuade the crew to return; the train limped into Kohat railway station.
Twenty-six men had been killed in the attack, and many wounded, including the commanding officer. Menezes took command and after a precarious journey of almost seven weeks, brought the remaining men safely to India.
This is the account of our ill-fated country and an ill-fated train, full of armed combatant soldiers, who suffered heavy loss of life while escaping the “devils” who had all been Indian citizens until a few weeks before. Our brave Jawans, who had fought the German and the Japanese crack troops without a cease fire in World War 2, became “sitting ducks” for these Mohammedans.
Spare a thought for the unarmed civilians, millions of them, who had no weapons to defend themselves, no armed guard, or the safety of a train, but had to walk countless miles in the burning sun of July and August when the killings were at their maximum, exposed to attacks and night raids all along the way, many losing lives, belongings and daughters, wives and sisters who remain unaccounted for.
How can a country claiming ancient civilization keep quiet about those millions of innocent Hindus, men, women and children, sick and old, who were never on the mind of Nehru, the Prime Minister, and how can a nation honor such a despicable traitor by naming a university after him and erecting his statues all over? This beggars belief.
To compound the misfortune and tragedy, the Hindu nation even adored his daughter and grandson to the extent that they became prime ministers, too, as if by divine right as in Medieval Age.
The conclusion must be drawn that the Hindus are still too ignorant, intimidated, brainwashed and frightened to demand post mortem of Partition and account for each and every person killed by the barbarians. What is the quality of India’s Parliament (Lok Sabha) that seems more concerned with the safety and wellbeing of Sonia Maino than the betrayed Hindus?
The nation must not rest till an enquiry is held into the conduct and patriotism of JL Nehru, the traitor, who signed the surrender of one third of India and consigned millions of Hindus to death or destruction. Will we, one day, see the name “Nehru” as UNMENTIONABLE in Broken Bharat (Partitioned Indian Secular State) as “JAI CHAND”, or as “Hitler” in Germany?
On that day the Hindus will have come of age by acquiring TERRITORIAL sense as well as the ability to discriminate between Friend and FOE.
Now where is the memorial to those martyred Jawans where the nation could go and pay homage instead of gathering at the so-called “Raj Ghat” on January 30th, and the “Bofors Chor Samadhi” on May 21st., to make a FOOL of themselves?
