Confusion confounded



I have admired Congress general secretary Digvijaya Singh ever since I saw him making a fool of journalists during the Nineties when he was still the Madhya Pradesh chief minister.

The Congress had done very poorly in his state during a series of the frequent Lok Sabha elections in that decade – and, even while Singh looked miserable, he proved quite adept at putting such a spin on those defeats that it left all journalists confused. They told him as much.

Watching him on television I saw his miserable visage brighten as it lit up with a smile, “Good. That means I am doing my job well!” he exclaimed.

Now, I must say, he is still trying to confuse and confound to the best of his abilities. But if his other admirers are befuddled, I am most disappointed in the man for his recent statements – there is a thing like going too far and I think Singh has been doing just that on the past few occasions.

I thought he had crossed the line when he supported the claim of some loony writer that the 26/11 attack had been perpetrated by the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh. I can understand the fringe elements among some Muslim groups who, on the morning after the attack, even as commandos were fighting the Pak terrorists, sent around e-mails claiming that the RSS had mounted the attack on the Taj, the Oberoi and Nariman House – they called it a Jewish-Christian-Hindu conspiracy by Israel, the US and India to kill and maim their own citizens for some tenuous reasons beyond anybody’s understanding.

That was before the world knew that Ajmal Kasab had been caught alive and even then was singing like a canary in police custody. But, a couple of years later, Singh should have known better

As I believe he should have when he came down on the side of Osama bin Laden, attacking the US for dumping the terrorist into the sea. I believe that was quite uncalled for – no Congressman, or indeed any Indian, had any business with the world’s most wanted terrorist. And Singh had no locus standi in the matter, either. It was entirely the US’s business what they did with him and if any one should have objected, it should have been Pakistan or Saudi Arabia.

Singh should have stopped to consider that Saudi Arabia would not have Osama bin Laden, dead or alive. Nor would Yemen whose citizenship he had acquired after Saudi Arabia, his country of birth, kicked him out following the 9/11 attacks on New York.

But even if those facts had escaped Singh’s conscience, he should have considered the reaction of Indian Muslims soon after the 26/11 attacks.

Nine of Kasab’s fellow terrorists were killed in that attack. Their bodies were rotting in the JJ Hospital morgue for more than 15 months because Muslim groups, including the clergy, refused to allow a burial in any of their burial grounds saying they had attacked the country where they were seeking a burial and killed scores of Indians. Even Pakistan would not have those terrorists. Ultimately, Bombay’s cops, in a top secret mission, disposed off their bodies in January 2010. Even today, no one knows where – a fact that was revealed by Maharashtra home minister R R Patil only in April that year when some questions were raised in the Assembly at their bodies being preserved at the cost of tax payers’ money.

Perhaps Singh should have first asked those mullahs and maulvis in Bombay who refused to give those terrorists their last rites how they felt about allowing those ‘criminals’ a burial place – there were many Muslims, too, who were killed during 26/11 and their relatives do not believe justice has been done with Osama’s killing. They are still baying for the blood of Hafeez Saeed an other Laskhar commanders who ordered those attacks and caused the killings of their loved ones.

I know that Singh was playing to the gallery – he thought he was safeguarding the Congress vote bank. But I think Congressmen like him should stop to think how much they actually hurt the minorities by believing that all of them support the al Qaeda and terrorism and would be grateful for the kind of defence that Singh put up for Osama bin laden.

That sort of a thing only succeeds in driving minorities out of the mainstream, makes their reactions (like refusal to bury Kasab’s nine terrorist-mates which, going by Singh’s standards, would be a disrespect of their religious rites, won’t it?) look unreal and calculated and leaves them with nowhere to go. He should know that not every Muslim in this country is a terrorist-sympathiser and no one at all has so far been found to be a member of the al Qaeda.

So I do not believe that any of them would have been impressed with Singh’s shedding of tears for a man who not only killed thousands, including Muslims, but also made the community suspect in the eyes of the world forever. He could have lost the party more votes than he had hoped to gain.

And did he really refer to Bin laden as ‘Osamaji’? How appalling if that were true! He should have taken some time to read the New York Times which is still very old-fashioned and correct. It has on occasion even referred to Adolf Hitler respectfully. But on Sunday night when Osama was killed, its top editors sent out a discreet note to its late night staffers: drop the ‘Mr’ (which they have never done before) while referring to Osama in their stories. Just capitalise the ‘b’ and use plain ‘Bin Laden’ on second reference, they instructed.

I have not even heard anyone refer to Osama as ‘Janab’ bin Laden, either.

    Sujata,
    You admired ( perhaps still admire) Digvijay Singh. And now you realise whta he is.

    You also admire Rahul Gandhi ever since he “blew your mind away” by taking a train journey in Mumbai last year.

    Just one point : Digvijay is the guru of Rahul Gandhi.

    Cheers !

    It is sad that once a Nationalist Party that took care of all segments of society along with it, now is merely an opportunistic and dynastic that cares more for being in power or coming in power than either national security or welfare of the people. On one had we have a totally bozo like Rahul Gandhi who (as per WikiLeaks), advised American Authorities that ‘BJP/Hindutvawadis’ are more dangerous than Jehadis. On other hand, we have a crass vote-bank begger Diggy who tries to create communal trouble by brining in how U.S. disposed off his body.

It helps the Congress do and get away with two things on the same issue at the same time — like when Digivjaya called Chidambaram intellectually arrogant on the Naxal issue. It allowed Chidambaram (and the UPA) to look tough in the use of force and at the same time tempered the Congress response by letting the people think they had compassion for the tribals and understood their predicament.

    Digvijay Singh is the successor to late Arjun Singh to lick the congress leader Sonia nGandhi’s boot for survival. When Arjun Singh died, we thought one Congress clown had gone for good, but his deputy Digvijay has immediately taken over from him.

    Yet I cannot digest how a former Raja or a chief minister of a state be so shallow in thinking, behaving, conducting and uttering nonsensical falsehoods day after day.

    I think the Congress Party leadership is using Digvijay as a barking dog to denigrate persons they don’t like. And the dog barks without knowing that he makes himself a fool.

    Earlier, Mulayam Singh Yadav took up the Muslim cause of Ayodhya in a big way and promised them that he will build a grnad mosque, as big as the one in Mecca, at thespot where presently a Ram Mandir is functioning. The Muslim community, believed him and conferred the title of Maulana on Mulayam.

    Now it is the turn of the Hindus to give a similar title to Singh. What better way to do it than calling him Mullah Digvinash Singh? Mullah because he thinks he is doing a great service to the Muslims. Digvinash because Hindus believe that he is dragging his party to certain vinash. His calling Osama as Osamaji Bin Ladenji is proof that he is indeed Digvinash.

    Sujataji, the Mumbai Muslims might have refused to bury the corpses of the slain Pakistani jihadis, but I am sad that you are not seeing that times have changed. Or, may be times haven’t changed even a bit. Yesterday, in Chennai, a Maulana held a funeral ceremony for Osama which was attended by 10000 Muslims! And in Kolkatta, a similar function was held by hte local Mullah with a big crowd in attendance!!

    It is so much fun for trolls to go into spasms of delight because Ms Sujatha has criticised a Congressman.Well,how many trolls or how many times these trolls would call a BJP spade a spade?We shall wait for that to happen though.

    Being a Congress supporter,I FULLY agree with Ms Sujatha about her views on Digvijay Singh.He is beginning to sound more and more like Ram Gopal Verma who makes DIFFERENT statements to sound and look DIFFERENT and hence maybe GET NOTICED.

    Only this time Diggi Raja is surely GETTING NOTICED.For wrong reasons.He has become a liability due to this habit of his to keep shooting his mouth off.The ONLY reason why he makes these statements is to ensure the Muslim vote in UP remains with Congress.Has anyone cared to find out what UP Muslims think of Osama ?
    Congress can never get UP back if it uses such leaders with such tactics to gain votes.This is sick jaded cynical thinking and we thought late Arjun Singh was the last flag bearer of such thinking.

    Congress should now make its choice.Admonish or punish or whatever but Diggy Raja needs to be reined in.

    By the way,no need for BJP trolls to tell us what to do.We in Congress would deal with him.

    Fringe politics to an extent can be understood in a democracy.But when that fringe begins acquiring lunatic proportions,it needs to be dealt with sternly – by every party in the mainstream.

    What are we gonna see next ? Diggy Raja applying for Pak visa to visit Abbottabad to lay a wreath ?And then launch himself into a charming explanation about why he did it ? The slip is showing Diggy Raja.Time for you to grow up or retire gracefully from public life.

    It appears that the seculars who actually lead the revolution and took the hit for it have been shoved aside by the people themselves who have preferred the Islamists to the seculars in the elections held so far n Tunisia and Egypt.

    A US arms control expert has made the astonishing claim that Pakistan’s notorious nuclear engineer AQ Khan may have proliferated nuclear technology to India.

    The source of the article is as surprising as the assertion is fantastic. In a commentary in the adults magazine Playboy, Joshua Pollack, a US policy wonk who has done work on nuclear proliferation, says India may have been the secret, unnamed “fourth country” — after Iran, Libya and North Korea — to which AQ Khan “provided the shortcut to a nuclear weapon.”

    Pollack offers little credible evidence to back the contention, other than to point similarities between the centrifuges India uses in its uranium-enrichment program and Pakistan’s own centrifuges engineered by Khan. He also cites South African court documents claiming that a member of the so-called “Khan network” supplied India’s centrifuge program with specialized equipment (mainly flow meters), starting in the late 1980s.

    According to Pollack, although India went nuclear several years before Pakistan, it was done through the plutonium route (in 1972). But New Delhi’s ability to enrich uranium remained limited, and it was not until 1986 — by which time Pakistan had been churning out weapons-grade uranium for three years — that India was ready to break ground on its uranium-enrichment facility.
