Different types of reaction

A book of famous politician Jaswant Singh about Mohammed ali jinah "Jinah, partition of India and freedom", different and contradictory reaction is coming up over the book from different thought circles. Negative and aggressive comments are coming from people of a particular nature who belong to RSS or BJP mindset. Secular faction of Congress is also not really happy with the book. But quite, by seeing the humiliating situation of BJP. A group thinks that the debate on partition of India is unnecessary, there is no use of this debate. This group can be named innocuous and protective but those smart people are also there among them who knew that if debate starts what point it can reach upto. Funny thing is that the supporters of the book are also of many type. One is that which has open mind towards the responsibility of the partition of India and wants that the facts be brought infornt of the world. Thus this book by Mr Jaswant singh is a critical study. There is another group which supports publication of the book for the sake of freedom of expression, and its stand is that the answer for book should be given by book. But a very clever and cheeky mind also jumped in support of Jaswant singh and his book.

Representing a mischeavous mindset
And the very active and best representative of this mindset is Arun Shourie. Famous english journalist and author, former central minister, BJP's thinker leader, cleverly supporting Jaswant singh defending RSS and its thoughts, ideologies and traditions. For example supporting this opinion of Mr singh that "Responsibility of partition lies also on Congress, Nehru and patel." he says "these leaders did nothing with regards to partition to defeat the conspiracy of Britain and Jinah." The writings of Mr shourie were coming in media taking the reasons of BJP failure in May elections. Now after Jaswant singh's case many statements, writings and interviews have come. A long interview came in the "walk the talk" program of NDTV. This was reported by Indian Express of 26th August. In every answer the clever mentality of RSS is obvious but in some answers defending the sangh methodology, meanness and ruthlessness also exhibited. For example "I was not in favour of removing Modi in Gujrat after riots, as whatever was happening that was reaction. Like the reaction after the assasination of Indra Gandhi in 1984. This reaction could not be stopped. Prime minister Atal bihari Vajpayee, because he is a softhearted man, was making his mind to remove narendra modi."

Three ways of changing the trend
And this is the same mind which remains active in all important events and circumstances. Tactfully manipulates the situation in favour of its own. Actually political powers, to change the trend of situation and events in their favour or to protect themselves against its ill effects, have three ways. 1) Political agitation or exasperating campaigns. (in 1990 after implementing the mandal commission report and government announcement, going on ram rath yatra). 2) Violence and any suuden big event of bloodshed (in last november during the uproar of saffron terrorism, mumbai events). 3) Scholarly, researched and political debate, which is unveiling the harmful realities, trying educational, research and political way to redirect them (in the debate over jaswant singh's book Mr shourie is doing the same thing. he wants to give this debate a new direction so that the distance of RSS from freedom struggle and its relations with britain rule can not come out and the spirit of jaswant singh's work die in itself). Though if this debate go further much and more can happen. But the guilty individuals need not to bother. Because the community which was hurt most by the stroke of partition, is quite since 62 years and now will also be quite.
