I have a hunch that the Pakistani authorities will hang Kulbhushan Jadhav.
The reason why I think so is that the Pakistan was created so that there should be hatred between Hindus and Muslims. If there is no hatred the very purpose of Partition and creating Pakistan will be lost.[/quote]
This preamble of the post portrays Pakistan as an inherently flawed and duplicitous country.
Flawed Pakistan might be, we hardly have any faultless nation on the earth's face.
To present her, Pakistan, as a duplicitous country is very unfortunate.
More unfortunately that is what the world thinks of Pakistan - at least the part of the world that is Islamophobic.
The nationalistic gentry in India does the same.
At the end Muslims are left helplessly holding onto the facts that lead to the creation of Pakistan.
And what are these facts?
Well many Muslims in India before 1947 thought that post independence Muslims in India might be caught in a disadvantageous position because democracy has no foolproof mechanism to protect the interests of minorities, not even the security.
The rise and rise of RSS and her sister and daughter organizations has brought home the pugnacious situation as the most cringeworthy problem of the world today.
Of course there might be many die-hard partition haters who will blame the present tight situation of Indian Muslims on division of India. They will be very minimally right.
To know it one has to look at the printed record that is indelible.
At the end of the nineteenth century a book was written in Bengal called Anand Math
by a Bengali civil servant named Bankim Chandra Chaterjee. Chaterjee in that book positioned Hindus, the majority community even in the then India, against Muslims.
this was not the only formations of the shape of the things to come and unfold but merely tell-tale sign.
The legacy was refined in such publications of RSS and We-Our Nationhood Defined
and Bunch of Thoughts
by the second RSS supremo M.S.Golwalkar who carried the honorific of Guruji - the Teacher.
People like Justice Katju are not supporters of RSS but he certainly belongs to a very large chunk of Indians from the majority community who will dump the blame for current tsunamic surge of Islamophobia in India on partition.
By blaming Pakistan for Indo-Pak hatred he has indulged in the classic act of putting the cart before the horse.
Ironically these arguments should have been coming from Pakistanis but they seem to be busy in more important things.
By and large the creators of Pakistan entrusted very irresponsible people with the task of taking care of the interests of the Ummah of beloved Rasoolallah SAW. The contry is full of Balochs, Sindhis, Punjabis enjoying shameless feudalism and blissfully unaware of the stark and repugnant reality that there are Muslims in India paying the price for their luxury.
So in my opinion the decision to hang Jadhav was taken by the Pakistan authorities after cool deliberation since hanging him is bound to considerably increase hatred of Muslims in India, and there may then soon be attacks on Muslims and mosques in many parts of India.
This line of argument is far-fetched and that is why I call Justice Katju a maverick. Like Sheikh Imran Hossein Justice Katju begins with actual ground level facts, information and reality and immediately runs it down with his exotica of wild guess and arbitrary conclusions. Their diagnosis of importance of issues is brilliant and their conclusions rubish and rank unreliable.
[quote]These will of course be described as 'spontaneous' by the Indian Govt., just as attacks on Jews during 'Kristallnacht' in November 1938 in Germany were described as 'spontaneous' by the Nazis.
These attacks on Muslims and mosques in India will inevitably result in 'spontaneous' attacks on the small Hindu community in Pakistan ( and possibly even Bangladesh ) and on Hindu temples.
There will then be further 'spontaneous' attacks on Muslims and mosques in India, and retaliatory 'spontaneous' attacks on Hindus and their temples. in Pakistan.
