Polarized Politicians & Our Nuclear-Neighbor :
The Gujarat issue has racked India by its roots. After getting the proofs about Pakistan’s involvement in gujarat’s continuing riots our PM became more fatalistic. Gujarat issue is a part of Pakistans strategy to create an internal war while it will use its terrorists to intrude into India and demolish it once for all. I have hope that this wouldn’t be allowed for we have our central government making arrangements in our Line-of-control.
The point I am getting frustrated is that our politicians actually spoil the whole show. They are extremely polarized about any issue. Either they are for an issue or they are against an issue. If the ruling party is supporing an issue all the guys in the opposition party are against or vice versa. This isn’t a situation for a democracy. We can’t certainly boast ourselves to be the largest democracy in the world. Democracy is all about being non-polarized and to reconcile on issues rather than blocking someone from doing something.
If you would have watched the Clinton’s trial in CNN, you would have see the manner in which the parliament was conducted. In the beginning, every speaker was given the number of minutes he can voice his opinion. Lets say if someone is given 20 minutes, he spoke for 20 minutes or less than that and if he spoke less than the time given to him, he recommends someone who can talk for the remaining time. More than an a discipline, it is a culture there. Here in India, if we have 20 points to speak, finally at the end of the question hour the assembly is adjourned due to some reason or other and only very few issues are discussed which leads to a heap of piled up issues, unanswered!
So our whole way of politics is spoiling someone else from doing what he intends to do. Now that last week the parliament took an unanimous decision on the stand against Pakistan, the next hurdle will come in the form of the debate which may ask ” Should India wage a war against Pakistan at this point of time when there is a lot of internal disturbances like gujarat?” . The politicians need to u’stand and act in the interests of people and not in their interests of their party.
Pakistan’s motive is a lot cleverer. They need a small war to be staged, which makes America more legitimate to broker between both the countries thereby influencing America as a mouthpiece for Pakistan.
This is the time that we as a countrymen need to be together to fight against the wrath of our nuclear-neighbor. Lets us hope for a No-War situation but for that friends, roman & countrymen, lets first UNITE!!!
