After Narendra Modi became Prime Minister and a retired IPS officer was appointed NSA (and made virtual super boss of intelligence and security agencies), the killings have steadily gone up, both in militancy-related incidents and Naxalite incidents.

In Jammu and Kashmir, 198 jawans and 91 civilians were killed in the 35 months of Modi rule, while the figures for the previous 35 months were 103 and 50, respectively. (In the Naxalism-related incidents 442 jawans and 278 civilians were killed in Modi’s 35 months as against 229 jawans and 47 civilians in previous 35 months.)

Former RAW chief A S Dulat, who was Advisor on Kashmir to PM Atal Behari Vajpayee, explains in an interview to Sheela Bhatt in The Indian Express: ‘because of alienation and the anger of youth, young Kashmiri minds have gone out of control. There is a sense of hopelessness. They aren’t afraid to die. Villagers, students and even girls are coming out on the streets. This has never happened in the past’.

He further points out  that terrorism, that intensity of violence and militancy ‘that we saw in 1990 is not there now. There were more guns then… Actual militancy was more then but today the situation is scarier. When stone-pelting is done by youth and girls it’s abnormal… Today, they are proud of being stone-pelters. They are no longer hiding. Schoolgirls and women are coming out to throw stones. The Kashmir situation has never been so bad’.

In a perceptive piece in The Hindu, Radha Kumar says candidly: ‘We have allowed our security forces (Army, Central Reserve Police Force and State police) to be the only visible face of India in the Valley — our legislators and civil government are not to be seen’. Academic and author, Radha Kumar was one of the three interlocutors for Jammu and Kashmir  appointed by the UPA government in 2010 The panel was headed by Dilip Padgaonkar, former editor of The Times of India. and the other member was M M Ansari, a former Election Commissioner of India.

In sum, solution to Kashmir problem is not possible without ending alienation of the people there. For that the BJP leaders will have to change their inborn mindset and start trusting Muslims.

Women become Sadhvis at young age generally because of traumatised childhood and multiple frustrations. It has nothing to do with renunciation of the worldly things or the desire to lead an ascetic life. The people’s psyche is such in this country that they start bowing before anyone who wears saffron or white clothes and prefixes his/her name with Sadhu or Sadhvi. More crafty of them gather around them a crowd of semi-educated people, some of them with criminal bent of mind. Then they pick up some religiously emotive subject and embark upon a crusade. If there is a government sympathetic to their cause, they become literally outlaws.

Sadhvi Kamal of Rajasthan equates with Bhagat Singh and Chandra Shekhar Azad the killers of Pehlu Khan of Alwar who was lynched by a mob of ruffians for transporting cows by declaring him a cow smuggler though he had told them that he had purchased the cows from a cattle fair in Haryana for milk and had shown them the receipts. Now what does this little known 39-year-old woman know about Bhagat Singh or Chandra Shekhar Azad or their work, or about the freedom struggle for that matter? She was said to have become Sadhvi at the age of 12 and needs specialised psychiatric treatment.

Sadhvi Niranjan Jyoti, who divides Indian society between Ramzadas and Haramzadas (Ram’s sons and bastards), is another shining example of mental depravity. That Prime Minister Narendra Modi has chosen her to include in his council of ministers speaks volumes about the mindset of the political leadership.

Most of the Sadhvis are ill-educated, boorish and possess a dirty tongue (perhaps dirty mind also). They (as well as their male counterparts) pose a greater threat to the country and its culture than misguided terrorists.

Value of propaganda

Adolf Hitler believed in the use of propaganda as an integral element to seizing and holding on to political power. His maxim was 'the bigger the lie, the more easily it will be believed, provided it is repeated vigorously and often enough'. (Sean Murphy in his book 'Letting the Side Down')
