MY PERSPECTIVES AND THOUGHTS ON Various Conversations IN VARIOUS FORUMS


General OSMANI


I strongly feel both general OSMANI & MAJOR GANI MUST have to be conferred with BIR SHESHTRO posthumously ; for fighting with the PAKISTANI ARMY TO RAISE  " THE EAST BENGAL REGIMENT".... Had this duo did not raise EBR : then the liberation with armed repulsion of the paki army in MARCH 1971.....  Could have never happened . There would have been no opposition & no mukti training could have taken

 place had these 5 EBR S WERE NOT IN EAST PAKISTAN.....i think we should raise our voices to confer this epitome of all gallantry awards.....happy birthday my hero......







Faith & religions

All organised religions  are mostly man made ... Full of myth, speculative faith , unexplained mysticism, supernatural paranormal activities... That is called FAITH ... I guess .... All of these religions some how managed to replicate identical faith cementing things... Its good for the human being own sanity.... None are wrong nor right ... Its the monumental magnitude of faithful army of devotees make the religion so unique and entwines the whole humanity....    Its my view ... You don't have to buy it..... Lets not fight over it..... These myths keep us all guessing... Hence we remain in harmony & in not harmony   




The legacy of Partition



CRACKS began to develop in India’s unity as a country when the poet Mohammad Iqbal began propounding the idea of Muslims being an entity separate from all other communities in the land. The All-India Muslim League developed the theme a little further and made it clear that the Muslims inhabiting the north-west and east of India would need to constitute themselves into independent states. The die, if one were inclined to observe circumstances in such critical manner, was cast. And yet the Cabinet Mission in 1946 raised the hope that somehow the territorial integrity of the country could be retained through a major restructuring of politics before independence could come to India.
Mohammad Ali Jinnah reluctantly accepted the Cabinet Mission scheme. So did the leading lights of the Indian National Congress, until Jawaharlal Nehru put a damper on the entire plan. He made it clear that his party was not obligated to see the plan reach a definitive conclusion. That was on July 10, 1946. The Muslim League, already uncomfortable at having accepted the Cabinet Mission Plan, saw Nehru’s remarks as a godsend and swiftly backed out of it. A month later, thanks to the Muslim League’s Direct Action Day, Muslims and Hindus cheerfully hacked away at one another in Calcutta. That was on 16 August. Four days later, anywhere between five thousand and ten thousand people, Hindus and Muslims, lay dead all across the streets of the huge metropolis. Partition had become inevitable.
Within days of the state of Pakistan coming into being on August 14, 1947, Jinnah went on an aerial survey of the situation on the ground. The sight of hundreds of thousands of refugees making their way away from their ancestral homes and toward villages and towns they had never seen or been to earlier sent a wave of shock through his being. ‘What have I done?’–that was the question he raised. No one answered. Within months, millions of Hindus and Sikhs would leave their ancient homes in Punjab and Bengal and trek to an uncertain future across unknown geography. Millions of Muslims would make their way to Pakistan, convinced that it was there they would live in dignity as masters of their destiny.
Sixty six years after Partition, one would do well to take stock of the ramifications of the vivisection of the land. Hindus and Muslims have only seen their relations worsen through the decades, to a point where communalism continues to define life all the way from Pakistan through India to Bangladesh. Hindutva undermines the secular vision that was once Nehru’s legacy. In Pakistan and to a certain extent in Bangladesh, religious bigotry threatens to wreck liberalism of all sorts. India’s Muslims remain largely backward, poor and, in a very big way, less than well-educated. In Pakistan, Hindus are as good as non-existent; and the tiny Christian minority is always the target of blasphemy law peddlers in the country. Bangladesh’s Hindu population has been on a steep decline, despite the country’s self-proclaimed secularism; its Christian community becomes smaller by the day; and after Ramu, its Buddhists are not sure this is their country any more.
Post-partition India has thrown up the likes of Bal Thackeray, who thought all Muslims should be kicked out of the country. Today, it is the controversial, none too Muslim-friendly Narendra Modi who dreams of being prime minister someday. In Pakistan and Bangladesh, no one imagines that a Hindu or Christian or Buddhist can play leading roles in politics and in the administration. If India’s BJP touts Hindu nationalism, Pakistan’s political parties continue to see nothing beyond Islam, while Bangladesh’s rightwing discovers, through ‘Bangladeshi nationalism’, a clever way of repudiating Bengali nationhood in favour of a shrewd pursuit of religion-based politics. Secular politics never took roots in Pakistan. In India and Bangladesh, it has been forced to the ropes.
The division of India has led to a diminution of politics through the rise of dynasties across the old country. The Bhuttos in Pakistan, the Nehru-Gandhis in India and the Mujib and Zia clans in Bangladesh have created the perfect conditions for mediocrity to thrive in politics. Behind these larger dynasties come the little ones–in politics, in the movies, indeed nearly everywhere. The modern-day republic is thus but another name for monarchies in new wrapping.
Partition saw the best among the Hindu community–teachers, philanthropists, doctors–leave Muslim Pakistan and make new homes across the newly drawn frontiers. It saw Muslim gentry, as in West Bengal, make the arduous decision to move to the new state of Pakistan in hopes of a better future. Both groups, as also their descendants, have remained trapped in nostalgia. Artistes and writers have seen their futures devastated by Partition. The singer Noor Jehan went off to Pakistan, together with Saadat Hasan Manto. Khushwant Singh, Kuldip Nayar and Inder Kumar Gujral, their homeland suddenly foreign territory for them, resettled in an India vastly different from the one they had known earlier. Sahibzada Yaqub Khan trooped off to Pakistan even as his parents and siblings decided to stay on in India. Jinnah, Liaquat Ali Khan, H.S. Suhrawardy and Bhutto abandoned homes in India and made new homes in Pakistan.
Partition has seen democracy, minus the aberration of the 1975-77 Emergency, thrive in India. In Pakistan, the army has undermined prospects of democracy four times and continues to wield unbridled influence over the making of policy. In Bangladesh, the liberation of which was a revolt against Pakistan, military coups have led to the systematic murder of politicians and leading freedom fighters.
Partition gave us Louis Mountbatten and Cyril Radcliffe, who gave us divided homes and villages and provinces. It gave us three wars. It gave the people of the subcontinent defence budgets that have left them impoverished.
Sixty six years after 1947, the legacy of Partition remains questionable, for children in India, Pakistan and Bangladesh grow into adulthood without knowledge of one another, with mistrust and suspicion blocking the road to a full, satisfying comprehension of our post-modern world.

/8/11 : EGYPT SITUATION AND A PERSPECTIVE (COLLECTED)  FROM A NEWS PAPER
: I WILL WRITE MY COMMENTS LATER ON IT


The Defeat of Political Islam

Many analysts who follow Egyptian politics have repeatedly stated that the Muslim Brotherhood, a very well-organized political faction that hijacked the revolution in Egypt, would be dominant for years to come due to the weakness of the opposition and liberal forces. To strengthen their argument, these analysts pointed at the Brotherhood’s strong organization, resolve, and political acumen. Moreover, President Morsi’s firing of the top brass of the Egyptian army in August 2012, following an attack by jihadists in Sinai who killed 16 Egyptian soldiers, and the eclipse of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF) which had ruled de facto since the resignation of President Mubarak, convinced many that the old concept of Egypt being a military society ruled by a junta of officers belonged to the past. It was believed that the army had lost its resolve to fight the Muslim Brotherhood as long as its interests – mainly economic – were protected.
Events proved this analysis wrong: The Muslim Brotherhood lost its power because it did not correctly assess the opposition, because it was eager to dominate all key positions in the state, and because it did not foresee the possible coalition between the liberals and the army. The Brotherhood’s loss is definitely a gain for those struggling against jihadist and Brotherhood-inspired groups in the Arab world, sending a message that political Islam can be subdued by moderate and liberal forces.

 Thoughts on Freedom Fighters on liberation of Bangladesh:


Events of 3rd November 1977 :  some serving officer at the time serving in 2 fd regd arty or 46 inf bde pens an impartial book on those events of 3 rd november -i guess people are too scared to come out with the real truth....i have a feeling....those freedom fighters were possibly suffering from WAR FATIGUE AND WAR SYNDROME ; a psychological syndrome and possibly that's why so many untowardly things to do with egoistic revenge kind vengeance had happened in our army.....the war of liberation was very traumatic ( i suffered for 3 years - never could sleep well . used to wake up with fear and sweating and crying - because during the war i used to be scared that one of this days my father will come back as a dead body and what will we do and will have to die without food and shelter - as he was the main bread earner of the family - he never took one night off from going to war.......even the both eid day he went for operation - we used to call it) now i know when i read about these happening with solders and officers returning from GULF WAR 1, Iraq War, Afghanistan War....which makes me think .. were our freedom fighters ( taher - khlaed musharraf- others) suffering from a trauma after the war???? i think we ought to look into in it..

Thought on banning of JIB

This is not going to hold any water ..... It's not a military rule..... They will overturn this from the legal loop wholes..... Banning them will create another monster of underground outfit.... Then the vengeance and other kind stuff will start.... It's a start but one thing is missing is how will one be able to eradicate these rouge elements who crawls back in under the cover of religion and predominantly our country people are too fearful and orthodox believer of religion which help them enormously to breed their concocted ideology amongst the masses who are susceptible to fall prey in their hands...... That is the biggest dichotomy the nation is facing.......or will face or faced.

Xxxxx


Time has come to resolve the age old enmity with the Israelite . And make peace and live in prosperity for all .... This hostile feeling by both religious group must change .... This is an unhealthy obsession

its a ploy to get the power consolidated.....their secret int dept will bribe the public to show the support for the army....the bad thing is many other armies around the world will try and emulate the same game in their own countries with the instigation of their own or outsider vested quarter.....Turkey- Egypt- Pakistan and a few south American countries must be sharpening their swords and polishing the sam browns..... MB is a total failure .....it took them almost 90 years to climb but slide back to sq one in one year....I think the religious prescription in governance does make a heterogeneous mixture - not soluble in each other...my worries how Bangladesh will learn lesson from it??!!!


The royalty was always there since the time when history has started to be documented ... In third world countries and in republican states they have thrown away the feudal royals for a political system of royalty .... Look at India - Pakistan- USA- Sri Lanka - Nepal - Thailand - Myanmar - Philippines ... So in essence joy don't need a party post he is the heir apparent ... Who will reign soon like TAREK zia - like Rahul Gandhi - ms bandernayeka - like ang sang SUKI in Myanmar - benzir and Bhutto clan in Pakistan ..... All in the name of democracy - people's rule- ism- dogma- in disguise to suppress and oppress the people ...... Other side of the same coin

This is not only in BANGLADESH : every other countries in disguise .... Political leaders - families have cleverly replaced the old royal monarch states , turned it into a democratic dynastic state... We ( the people ) are the pawns of these chess game. Look at joy ; he is sitting on a war chest of at least 10 million awami league core die hard army ..... So is TAREK ..... Only way out is create consensus and punish them by vote..... But for that you need to get out of the comfort zone - the neo elite class are in a gravy train : they don't want to bell the cat and get out in the muck ... Life's priorities lies elsewhere ... Rest is just rhetoric

“Watch your thoughts, for they become words. Watch your words, for they become actions. Watch your actions, for they become habits. Watch your habits, for they become character. Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.''
Please Read the history ...don't listen what these new maulana's say........633 AD it all started.........they just reclaimed back their lost land......which is taken away from India - which many indian will say we have taken it from them....As per anthropologically that land belongs to the israelites and they have lived there from the dawn of human habitation...no one should uproot someone from their homeland ....not for religious conquest or otherwise...................the history is history ; there is no room to shove new chapter in it to establish some concocted story in in it. How would have we felt if us ( who went to India in 1971 ) and  Pakistan won the war and bangladesh had never happened then those pakistanis would have filled the whole east  pakistan with kashmiri people and we would have been wiped out from our own land ...would you have liked that? so. let us be fair.....we can not justify some heinous annihilation for the sake of religious conquest..................thanks


They are ( Egyptian ) army followed the Turkish army since 1956 they are having a gravy time in a gravy train.... Miserably failed in all the campaigns with Israel - it's a hyped up army with mammoth business interest   .... Richest business conglomerate of Egypt ; they don't want to answer to anyone - culturally and ethically Un - subservient to any political masters ..... There lies the problem . Like Turkey - Pakistan - and so on........
