Now I am taking up the late Abu Tamim style dissection of above post.
In the post quoted above veteran journalist Shekhar Gupta's team listed the references to Congress by the Indian PM in his budget session speech in Indian parliament.
I intend to present a dispassionate Muslim view.
12.17- You injected poison
“It’s in your character. When India was conceived, you divided it for your own gains. You injected poison and even after 70 years, the Indian still suffers today.”
Congress did contribute to injecting the poison in India's social fabric - when they went for Soft Hindutva so as to counter the communal poison that RSS was injecting into India using their political wings like BJP, VHP and Bajrang Dal.
Congress, starting with Nehru himself, erred in not perceiving the real threat from RSS. Hence they also injected poison by sheer negligence and incompetence.
When the genii became too strong they were simply clueless about capturing it into the bottle. They are still clueless.
So yes the Congress is at a huge fault.
Unfortunately that is still the smaller line of evil. The bigger line still belongs to the BJP, the party to which the PM belongs.
12.20: You were not serving the nation
“You were not serving the nation, but only your family.”
Indeed they were serving their own family too.
But to say that they were not serving the nation is a mega-lie.
The PM himself said that people accuse me of taking credit for Congress work. That is true. Contribution of his party to the nation is nearly zero and whatever they have done positive that more than cancels by the negatives they have injected into the Indian society.
From the point of view of the gain and loss analysis their party is harmful for the country.
12.24: Some people are like a cassette tape
Some people in the opposition when they criticise us, they keep repeating “in our time” like a cassette tape.
So? Did they bring the calamity like demonetization on us? No they did not. What ever India is today is because of them. hence they did earn the right to harp upon their past.
From the point of view of Muslims the Congress simply indulged in tokenism and the BJP cursed us for that tokenism and called it appeasement of Muslims.
Whether his complain is right or wrong there is nothing in it for Muslims.
12.25: You made fragments of Mother India
“We haven’t been able to progress with the speed we could have, and you made fragments of Mother India, yet the nation was with you. The radio only played your records and when the TV came, it was completely servile.”
Today the media is unashamedly for you. Earlier too it was completely clueless about giving Muslims their due in the country.
Congress had that notional equality that was flaunted grossly on the ground level and today BJP, as per their own wish as dictated by the RSS, is moving towards wiping out even that notional equality.
12.26: Congress appointed top judges
“For a period, even the top positions in the judiciary were appointed by Congress party. It was decided through the party. This much luxury in the courts, at a time when there was no PIL or presence of NGOs.”
This assertion too lacks at the level of accuracy. He certainly is not aware of what Justice HR Khanna did about emergency. What the RSS inspired judges are doing to the society today is simply horrifying.
12.27: You spent the whole time singing odes to one family
“You spent the whole time singing odes to one family, disregarding the history of the nation. The days after Independence, there was enthusiasm in the nation. If you worked with some responsibility, this nation with its potential would have reached greater heights. But you kept dancing to your own tune. ”
Suppose the Congress is the epitome of bad things. Who is the lesser evil for the country?
12.28: Congress thinks India was born on 15 August 1947
“Congress party workers think that India was born on 15 August 1947. Like the nation didn’t exist before this.”
Then Nehru wrote the Discovery of India on August 16, 1947 and it was about August 15, 1947. Right?
Of course India can be defined only after expunging Muslim rule from its history. Let alone India even the word Hindu can not be defined without Muslims.
And who make India Virat as it exists today? The biggest unifications of India were during the Mauryans, Guptas, Akbar and Aurangzeb and the British. How many of them were Hindus?
12.29: Congress and Nehru didn’t give us democracy
“They say that Nehru gave us democracy. You talk about democracy? The tradition of democracy has been carried on for generations. Congress and Nehru didn’t give us democracy.”
12.30: Don’t insult Jagatguru Basaveshwara
“Mallikarjun Kharge is here. You are from Karnataka. After worshipping one family, after Karnataka elections you might have energy left, but at least don’t insult Jagatguru Basaveshwara, during whose time in the 12th century all decisions in villages were taken in a democratic manner.”
There Muslims, Christians, Communists in India and then there are the fourth Varna and then there are the Dalits. None of them will subscribe to your definition of India. with these combined you will not be left with even the present 31 percent of the votes.
Just wait for the fourth Varna and the Dalits to realize their mistake.
12.33: Rajiv Gandhi insulting the Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister
“When Rajiv Gandhi arrived at the Hyderabad airport, a Chief Minister who was from a schedule caste came to receive him at the airport. He (Rajiv Gandhi) humiliated the Dalit CM T.N. Anjaiah.”
The biggest mistake Rajiv Gandhi did was to make a mention of a tree falling and shaking the ground.
That was simply inapt of him. You can not accuse that family of being anti-Dalit by disposition.
This is argument by exception and hence not valid.
12.35: Why did the Congress dismiss so many state governments?
“What did you do with Akali Dal in Punjab? What did you do in Tamil Nadu? What did you do in Kerala? You did not let the democracy of the country thrive.”
Indeed that question about the excessive power of central government was there.
How does it that a positive thing in your favour? Is your raison detre not majoritarianism?
12.36: Congress’s democracy gets trampled
“When the voice of conscience is raised, Congress’s democracy gets trampled.”
On the account of conscience every political dispensation fares better than any RSS product.
12.36: The betrayal of Neelam Sanjiva Reddy
“The Congress President insulted Shri Neelam Sanjiva Reddy and stabbed him in the back.”
Clutching at the straws.
12.37: Talking about democracy doesn’t suit you
“Recently, when Dr. Manmohan Singh was prime minister, the cabinet took a decision. An important ritual of democracy. A post holder from your own party called press and tore the paper with cabinet decision on it in front of the nation. Talking about democracy doesn’t suit you.”
Even Indira Gandhi, the Durga of AB Vajpayee, live happily with democracy.
12.38: Congress committees voted for Sardar Patel to be first PM
“When Congress held elections (internal elections before Independence) for leadership in the country, 12 out of 15 Congress committees chose Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, 3 chose NOTA. Yet the leadership wasn’t given to him (Patel), and Nehru was given the post. If Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel would have been the first prime minister of the country, all of Kashmir would have been ours.”
Even if sardar patel was better than Nehru he was from Congress. why do you not have good ideals like him?
12.39: Our government has built more highways
“Our government more built national highways than the previous government.”
Even the bomb exploded by AB Vajpayee was a Congress creation. So is most of the development.
12.42: We have outdone the previous government
“The previous government may take credit for the work. But we have outdone them at every level. There is no comparison.”
This is self serving assertion and the data is not supporting this.
12.46: Kharge takes pride in a Vajpayee govt project
He (Mallikarjun Kharge) takes pride in his work in railways in Karnataka. But the truth about the Bidar-Kalburgi rail line is that the project was approved by the Vajpayee government. The Congress never speaks about it.
Kharge is critical of BJP on the communal front.
Let us take that also into account.
12.52: Congress does not give credit to other parties
“No Congress minister has given credit to other parties but I have. It is in our character to do so.”
Because there is so little of that.
12.53: You think everything has been done because of you and your family
“When Gujarat was conceived, Congress was ruling. In these 50-year journey, we archived all the lectures of all governors. That’s democracy. You think everything that has been done is because of you and your family. It is the mentality you have that resulted in you sitting there.”
Not all but most.
12.55: Manipulating employment numbers
I want to ask my friends in Congress who criticise employment numbers – when you give the unemployment numbers, you give it for the whole country, but when you give employment numbers, then you must give the numbers for the whole country as well.
Lately it is your propaganda machinery that is doing all the manipulations.
13.01: You have your eyes shut
“You have your eyes shut and hence you can’t rise above. And your mentality will result in you staying there.”
On the contrary you have nothing to present before us as an achievement except for the power accumulated by majoritarianism.
13.02: Young leaders in 1980s failed to get even aviation policy in place
“During the 1980s the Congress government had young leaders who set aspirations for the 21st century, but failed to get so much as an aviation policy in place.”
Indeed most competent of them - they could not ensure to keep BJP out of power.
13.05: You said Modi won’t let Aadhaar come
“You said Modi won’t let Aadhaar come. But when Modi brought it in a scientific manner that you couldn’t imagine, and now that it’s in place, you started contesting the implementation.”
Again the trouble is Aadhar intruding into our privacy.
13.09: Matter of shame 20 per cent of population still lives without power
“It is a matter of shame that around 20 per cent of our population still lives without electricity and we have inherited that from you.”
And then you drained three and half years of our time.
13.16: We had to import bamboo because of your mistake
“You couldn’t have imagined bigger things. You worked with a narrow mind. We had to import bamboo because of your mistake.”
That kind of thing can happen.
13.29: Previous government responsible for NPA problem
“The previous government is 100 per cent responsible for the NPA (non-performing asset) problem, because of their banking policies.”
Dr Manmohan Singh saved India in most critical times.
13.39: Talking to the Chinese during Doklam
“When our soldiers were sanding at Doklam, you were talking to the Chinese?”
Chinese are not that intelligent.
13.40: We didn’t let nation suffer
“When Indira Gandhi signed the Shimla Agreement, or the pact with Benazir Bhutto, we were not in agreement. However, Atal Bihari Vajpayee did not go out and talk about it, instead, he took time from Indira Gandhi and talked to her. We didn’t let the nation suffer.”
Not with Benazir. She was just a an adolescent beauty at that time.
