An Appeal to the Police, Paramilitary, and Armed Forces of India: Please DO NOT protect UPA "leaders"


This is an appeal to the Police, Paramilitary, and Armed Forces of India. To save innocent Indian men women and children from terrorism, please widely circulate this appeal in order to make sure it reaches every police officer, constable, jawan, and military officer serving the Motherland.

Dear Soldiers of the Motherland,

Kindly consider and reflect upon the following recent events. The UPA Governnment has come to power with the election pledge of removing the anti-terror POTA law. This has happened in the post-9/11 environment when vrtually every other civilized country has started strengthening their legal system to more effectively fight Radical Islamic terror. For example, the US has enacted the PATRIOT ACT which gives sweeping powers to its intelligence agencies. The entire US intelligence framework has been rebuilt and restructured (e.g. formation of the Department of Homeland Security, Directorate of National Intelligence, etc) in order to allow all the different US intelligence, counter-espionage, and law-enforcement, and security agencies (like CIA, FBI, NSA, etc) to function together in co-operation and synergy.

In contrast, India's UPA Government has weakened the legal system (by removing anti-terror laws like POTA) simply to indulge in Muslim vote-bank politics.

This has continued even after tens of devastating terror attacks have occurred in Mumbai, Srinagar, Ghatkopar, Nagpur, Ayodhya, Delhi, and so on, killing hundreds of innocent Indians and maiming thousands more, creating hundreds of thousands of widows, orphans, and helpless old parents. In spite of all this, the UPA Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has explicitly rejected a public appeal from the Intelligence Bureau Chief for stronger laws to fight terror.

The UPA Government has taken Muslim vote-bank politics to the extreme by completing the destruction of the last vestiges of secularism and equality of religion by introducing Reservations for Muslims (in Congress-ruled Andhra Pradesh, the Supreme Court has stopped this till the UPA over-rules the Court like Rajiv Gandhi did over the Shah Bano Case, another Muslim vote-bank issue). In addition, it has taken steps like preparing the Sachar Committee Report that aims to introduce Muslim Reservations into the Indian Armed Forces as well. UPA Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has gone so far as to openly declare that Muslims have first claim upon India's resources. Secularism is dead; all hail Vote Bank politics.

At the same time, the viciously dangerous UPA Government has taken active steps to keep Muslim vote-bank politics potent and useful by dividing the Hindu majority population with Casteist issues like the OBC Reservations. It has also been actively attempting to start a Caste War among the Hindus of India by distributing guns to (Dalit) Casteist groups (in Maharashtra, where this experiment is being done). Maharashtra Congress claims that guns are being distributed to uplift and empower those populations. This is ridiculous. Soon after the guns were distributed, suddenly a few statues of Dr B. R. Ambedkar were desecrated in various parts of India, and the Congress-sponsored Dalit groups broke out in violence. It is clear that this was a deliberately planned campaign to divide Hindus and get them to kill one another based on Caste.

The UPA's Muslim vote-bank politics is showing no signs of letting up and matters are steadily going from bad to worse. Now, the latest infamy cooked up by the UPA is the campaign to let the Parliament attack terrorist Muhammad Afzal go without punishment.

The notorious terrorist has been convicted by the Supreme Court of India. He carried out his crimes in 2001. Since then, 5 whole years have passed. He has had the full benefit of the Indian legal system. He has used every loophole in the laws and legal procedures to slow down the case, hoping that other Pakistani terrorists would hijack Indian airplanes, take passengers hostage, and bargain for his life and freedom (just like Maulana Masood Azhar and two other terrorists who had been captured by Indian soldiers, got their freedom in 1999). Finally, after 5 years, he has run out of legal options. Justice has been served. Now the UPA wants to let him go, out of Muslim vote-bank politics considerations.

The heartless, soul-less, conscience-less, corrupt, and evil UPA Government does not care about the lives of Indian citizens.

The only reason is because they know they are themselves safe.

Because YOU, the soldiers and policemen of India, are giving your lives to keep them safe.

Here is my appeal: Please stop protecting UPA politicians. Your oath of loyalty is to Bharat Maata; not to the rapists murderers thieves and robbers who rule India and call themselves politicians.

You, the soldiers and policemen of India, have no obligation to keep these rapists, murderers, thieves, and dacoits safe. Let Pakistani terrorists plot their death. Do nothing to prevent what they deserve. Let UPA politicians die. Please.

Bharat Maata will appreciate this service from you.

Do not do anything illegal yourself. Do not open yourself up to disciplinary action. Do not commit a crime (such as killing an UPA politician) yourself. Because Mother India needs you to remain clean and upright, honest and disciplined as you have always been.

Let the Pakistani terrorists do it.

Protect and serve the common people of India. Actively stop terrorist attacks directed against the common people of India, or politicians who have not supported clemency for Afzal or indulged in similar Muslim vote-banking activities.

But try to spend as little effort as possible to keep the UPA politicians and other Muslim vote-bankers safe. Let them die.

For example: if you are detailed to protect an UPA scumbag like Lallu Prasad Yadav, Rabri Devi, Antonia Maino (who calls herself Sonia Gandhi), Manmohan Singh, Arjun Singh, Ambubani Ramadoss, etc, just do the bare minimum to make sure nobody can blame you of having done anything wrong. But absolutely do not try too hard to keep these acumbags safe. If they get attacked by some Pakistani terrorist, let them die. You should live, to continue to serve Mother India. Absolutely DO NOT risk your life or health to save a scumbag like Lallu, Arjun, Antonia, Manmohan, Ambubani, Rabri, etc.

As long as you are not committing a crime (such as deliberately plotting to kill an UPA scumbag), your name and honour cannot be blackened and you cannot be punished. Make sure nobody can blame you in any way if the scumbag politician dies on your watch. And if you do get blamed for not having done more to save the scumbag, surely it is better to be blamed for incompetence rather than to die saving a scumbag rapist/thief/dacoit/murderer politician who harms India every day he/she is alive ?

So please, DO NOT try too hard to keep these UPA bastards alive. Let them die. It would be a great and noble service to Mother India and her children.

Vande Mataram. Jai Hind.

BBC reports:
Families give back bravery medals
By Jyotsna Singh
BBC News, Delhi

Mohammed Afzal
The Supreme Court has upheld Afzal's conviction
Families of six policemen killed in an attack on the Indian Parliament five years ago have returned their bravery medals to President APJ Abdul Kalam.

They are demanding that Mohammed Afzal Guru, a Kashmiri facing execution for helping militants in the attack, should be hanged.

The president is considering a clemency petition filed by Afzal and his family.

The attack on Parliament on 13 December 2001 left 14 people dead, including five militants and six policemen.

Meanwhile, Afzal Guru lawyers have filed a petition in the Supreme Court seeking to reopen the case.

"The government had decided to hang Afzal Guru on 20 October. Why has that been put off? Why are our martyrs being insulted?" asked the wife of Vijender Singh, one of the slain policemen.

"My husband died for the country. Now the children of a terrorist should also suffer the way my children have been suffering for the past five years. We want him hanged," said the wife of another policeman killed in the attack.

On the fifth anniversary of the attack, members of Parliament observed a two-minute silence and paid floral tributes to those who lost their lives in the attack.

Slogan shouting

But the occasion was also used by the main opposition Bharatiya Janata Party to step up pressure on the government to carry out the death sentence handed down to Afzal Guru.

The House adjourned amidst uproar as BJP members began shouting slogans, demanding that Afzal Guru be hanged immediately.

Ever since the Supreme Court upheld Afzal's conviction and set a date for his execution in October, all those in favour of and against his hanging have begun active campaigns.

The Afzal family's mercy petition is yet to be decided. The President has forwarded it to the interior ministry and is waiting for its recommendations.

Afzal's wife has submitted a mercy plea to the president

Speaking to journalists outside Parliament, Junior Home Minister Sri Prakash Jaiswal said every individual has the right to seek clemency.

The government's Left partners too are opposed to the death sentence.

Legal experts say no clear cut guidelines on deciding mercy petitions exist.

No real discretion

They say the factors generally taken into account while examining such petitions are - personality of the convict, his age, sex, mental condition or circumstances of the case.

Officials at the President's House say the President is bound by the advice of the council of ministers and has no real discretion in the matter.

During the past decade, the President has rejected seven mercy petitions and commuted the sentences of two.

More than 20 clemency petitions are reported to be pending with the government.

Lawyers say a convict facing death sentence cannot be hanged till his or her mercy petition is rejected.

The December 2001 attack on the Indian parliament in Delhi was one of the most controversial incidents in recent Indian history.

Mohammed Afzal was one of two men sentenced to death. But the punishment for Shaukat Hussain was later reduced to 10 years in jail on appeal.

Two other two accused in the case, SAR Geelani and Afsan Guru, were acquitted due to lack of evidence.

India blamed the attack on the Jaish-e-Mohammed militant group, which it said was backed by Pakistan.

Pakistan denied involvement in the attack but relations between the two countries seriously deteriorated in the following months.

At its worse the two sides amassed some one million troops in confrontation along their border.

Parliament attack victims families return medals
[13 Dec, 2006 1406hrs ISTPTI]

NEW DELHI: Demanding Mohd Afzal's execution, families of the securitymen who died in the 2001 Parliament terror attack on Wednesday returned the gallantry medals they had received in honour of the slain personnel to the Rashtrapati Bhavan as a mark of protest over the delay in carrying out the sentence.

Accompanied by All India Anti-Terrorist Front (AIATF) chief M S Bitta on the fifth anniversary of the attack, they also expressed shock over Union Home Minister Shivraj Patil's remarks that they were being provoked by the BJP over the Afzal row.

"We did not order execution of Afzal. It's the court that has ordered it. But this vile politics over his death sentence, which is being delayed, has led us to return these medals," Ganga Devi, widow of sub-inspector Nanak Chand, told reporters after emerging out of the presidential palace.

They met the media holding a placard that contained photographs of all the slain security personnel.

The families of the slain securitymen returned the medals to an official at the Rashtrapati Bhavan, saying they should be placed in the National Museum until Afzal, who has been convicted in the case, is executed.

"We will take back these medals after Afzal is hanged," Jayawati, widow of head-constable Vijender Singh, said after returning the medal to a Rashtrapati Bhavan director.

The families rejected Patil's remarks in Parliament about them, which they said have left them sad and shocked.

Par attack victims' kin return medals, regret Patil's remarks

New Delhi, December 13, 2006

Demanding Mohd Afzal's execution, families of the securitymen who died in the 2001 Parliament terror attack on Wednesday returned the gallantry medals they had received in honour of the slain personnel to the Rashtrapati Bhavan as a mark of protest over the delay in carrying out the sentence.

Accompanied by All India Anti-Terrorist Front (AIATF) chief MS Bitta on the fifth anniversary of the attack, they also expressed shock over Union Home Minister Shivraj Patil's remarks that they were being provoked by the BJP over the Afzal row.

"We did not order execution of Afzal. It's the court that has ordered it. But this vile politics over his death sentence, which is being delayed, has led us to return these medals," Ganga Devi, widow of sub-inspector Nanak Chand, told reporters after emerging out of the presidential palace.

The families of the slain securitymen returned the medals to an official at the Rashtrapati Bhavan, saying they should be placed in the National Museum until Afzal, who has been convicted in the case, is executed.

"We will take back these medals after Afzal is hanged," Jayawati, widow of head-constable Vijender Singh, said after returning the medal to a Rashtrapati Bhavan director.

The families rejected Patil's remarks in Parliament about them, which they said have left them sad and shocked.

"He (Patil) is wrong. His remarks are painful. Our only support is Bitta. We are not going to raise our voice from any political platform," Jagmal Singh, father-in-law of Vijender Singh, said.

The families also ruled out accepting honours from any political parties in the wake of the BJP's plans in this regard.

Nine securitymen were killed in the attack on Parliament on December 13, 2001.
In their joint memorandum to President APJ Abdul Kalam, with whom Afzal's mercy petition is pending, the families of the slain securitymen said they regard the gallantry medals a "humiliation" in the light of the delay in the execution of the death-row convict.

"A pardon means making a mockery of the brave soldiers and civilians who laid down their precious lives while performing their duty for the nation.

"Hence we have decided to return the medals to the government given to our near and dear ones, which now seem to us like humiliation piled on us," the memorandum said.

It was signed by ten people, including widows of two CPWD men and of a TV journalist who were killed in the attack.

Disgusting. The policemen who repelled the attack on the Parliament are heroes. The families are right to return their medals.

For other commentary about the Parliament attacks, please revisit Varsha Bhosle's article
Too Little, Too Late from December 2001, especially the last two paragraphs.

Actually the OBC reservations have reduced the division of society. Befor this there were numeruous backward castes. The reservation brings them under one banner thus reducing the number of groups in the country. And thereby stopping the fragmentation and as result unifying the country.
