Mahatma M.K. Gandhi – A Curse for Bharat – Ramdas Gandhi
Dedicated to my Mother, who died during partition days in 1947 at Sialkot (now in Pakistan)
“After witnessing complete annihilation of Hindus in “Kulachi”, a town in District “Dera Ismail Khan” of NWFP in mid-April 1947, our family crossed river Indus in first week of May 1947, to reach a Railway Station “Darya Khan” in District Mianwali of West Punjab. From Darya Khan, we had to travel to reach “Lahore” via “Kundian” and “Lala Musa”, to ultimately go to “Sialkot”, where my father was serving at that time to witness complete annihilation of Hindus and Sikhs once again in August 1947.
It was a long journey from Darya Khan to Lahore, with heavy rush in the train. So, my mother and sisters were accommodated in some Ladies compartment, which had no rush. There was no Muslim lady in the compartment. On the way, at some station, one Muslim lady boarded that ladies compartment. She started shouting loudly, that Hindus killed Muslims in Bihar. All Hindu ladies listened to her like dumb sheep and no one had the guts to rebut. My mother could not tolerate it and retorted, that Muslims were the first to start killings of Hindus in Bengal. When those Bengali Hindu refugees reached Bihar for shelter, there was a natural reaction against Muslims in Bihar. How she dared to blame Hindus? This was sufficient to silence that Muslim lady, and she kept mum during the rest of the journey.”
Think – Understand – Awake!
- Whatever leaders there are in the country today, of whichever party or class, are bent on capturing power through people’s votes and then exploiting and plundering the people for full five years. After winning the election, the leaders turn into rulers and through resort to intimidation with the help of the Police or goondas fill their unholy coffers (or make their tons of money).
- Even fifty-four years after independence (which, in fact, is another name for the country’s partition) these leaders keep the people starved, unclothed and illiterate, and setting them at each other’s throat in the name of language, province, community, caste, they serve their own selfish interests.
- They have plunged the country into the forge of corruption through such un-necessary or uncalled for policies as control, quota, permit, licensing, rationing, sales tax, excise duty, labor act, nationalization. The game of these opportunist leaders is to make sure that there is no honest man around and their seat of power is ever safe.
- Their big plan is to make every man a slave by putting him through the grind of what they choose to call discipline, by making him wait for hours in a queue for essential things under a regime of official restrictions.
Does a leader swearing by socialism ever stand in a queue to get his ration, milk or kerosene oil etc.
Think, understand, awake! Raise your voice against this conspiracy.
Else, there will be neither country, nor Dharma, nor society, nor faith. We shall all be changed into domesticated animals, like slaves in the past days.
Akhand Bharat will be a nightmare! – R. Jagannathan
