हेमंत करकरे क्या वास्तव में शहीद हैं….?

FromWhatsApp:

हेमंत करकरे क्या वास्तव में शहीद हैं…?
बात निकलेगी तो फिर दूर तलक जाएगी…

26 नवंबर 2008 की रात मुंबई की गिरगाव चौपाटी रोड पर रुकी कार के भीतर अत्याधुनिक आग्नेयास्त्रों से लैस वो 2 खूंख्वार आतंकी बैठे थे जो उस रात मुंबई की सडकों पर खून की होली खेलने निकले थे और पिछले 2 घंटों में ही मुंबई CST सहित कई स्थानों पर लगभग 60-70 निर्दोष नागरिकों को मौत के घाट उतार चुके थे.
गिरगांव चौपाटी पर उस रात उस कार का रास्ता रोक कर खड़ी हुई मुंबई पुलिस की टीम के सदस्य असिस्टेंट सब इन्स्पेक्टर तुकाराम ओम्बले इस स्थिति को अच्छी तरह जान समझ रहे थे. हालांकि उनके हाथ में पिस्तौल या रिवॉल्वर के बजाय केवल लाठी थी और अच्छी या ख़राब बुलेटप्रूफ जैकेट तो छोडिए, उनके बदन पर बुलेटप्रूफ जैकेट ही नहीं थी. लेकिन इसके बावजूद तुकाराम ओम्बले ने अपने कदम कार की तरफ और अपने हाथ उन आतंकियों के गिरेबान की तरफ बढ़ा दिए थे. जवाब में आतंकियों की बंदूकों से बरसी गोलियों से छलनी होने के बावजूद उन आतंकियों की कार में घुस गए तुकाराम ओम्बले ने उनमें से एक आतंकी का गिरेबान तबतक नहीं छोड़ा था जबतक उसको कार से बाहर घसीटकर सड़क पर पटक नहीं दिया था. इसी आतंकी की पहचान बाद में अजमल कसाब के नाम से हुई थी.
इसी दिन 26/11 की रात, गिरगांव चौपाटी की इस घटना से लगभग 45 मिनट पहले ही आतंकी कसाब और उसके आतंकी साथी से 8 पुलिस कर्मियों की टीम का सामना हो गया था. टीम का नेतृत्व हेमंत करकरे कर रहे थे. करकरे और उनकी टीम के पास तुकाराम ओम्बले की तरह केवल लाठी नहीं बल्कि आटोमैटिक पिस्तौलें और राइफलें थीं. करकरे और उनकी टीम तुकाराम ओम्बले की तरह केवल सूती कपडे की सरकारी वर्दी नहीं पहने थी, बल्कि बाकायदा बुलेट प्रूफ जैकेट और हेलमेट पहने हुए थे. बुलेट प्रूफ घटिया थी कहने से काम नहीं चलेगा क्योंकि वो जैकेट चाहे जितनी घटिया रही हो किन्तु तुकाराम ओम्बले की सूती कपडे वाली सरकारी वर्दी से तो हज़ार गुना बेहतर रही होगी.
सिर्फ यही नहीं, गिरगांव चौपाटी पर हुई मुठभेड़ में तो आतंकी कार में, आड़ लेकर बैठे थे जबकि तुकाराम ओम्बले के पास खुली सड़क पर किसी तिनके तक की ओट लेने की गुंजाईश नहीं थी.
जबकि करकरे और उनकी टीम की स्थिति इसके ठीक विपरीत थी.
उनके सामने दोनों आतंकी खुली सड़क पर बिना किसी ओट के खड़े थे और करकरे अपनी टीम के साथ कार के भीतर थे इसके बावजूद उन दोनों आतंकियों ने करकरे समेत उनकी पूरी टीम को मौत के घाट उतार दिया था और करकरे व उनकी पूरी टीम मिलकर उन दोनों को मारना तो दूर उनको घायल तक नहीं कर सकी थी. जबकि निहत्थे तुकाराम ओम्बले ने सीने पर गोलियों की बौछार सहते हुए भी कसाब सरीखे आतंकी को कार के भीतर घुसकर बाहर खींच के सड़क पर पटक दिया था. यह था वो ज़ज़्बा और जूनून जिसने तुकाराम ओम्बले को शहादत के सर्वोच्च शिखर पर पहुंचा दिया.
करकरे और उनकी टीम उन दो आतंकियों का सामना क्यों नहीं कर सकी थी.?
इस सवाल का जवाब देश को आजतक नहीं मिला. संकेत देता हूँ कि जवाब क्यों नहीं मिला था.
दरअसल उनके रक्त के नमूने जेजे अस्प्ताल ने इसबात की जांच के लिए फोरेंसिक लैब में भेजे थे कि क्या उन्होंने शराब पी रखी थी.?
फोरेंसिक लैब की जांच का परिणाम क्या निकला था.?
देश को आजतक यह भी नहीं बताया गया.
मित्रों यह कोइ ऐसा रहस्य नहीं था जिसके उजागर करने से देश की सुरक्षा को कोई खतरा उत्पन्न हो जाता. लेकिन देश को यह नहीं बताया गया.
अतः मेरा स्पष्ट मानना है कि, उस रात यदि वास्तव में कोई शहीद हुआ था, जिसकी शहादत के समक्ष पूरा देश सदा नतमस्तक होता रहेगा, तो वो नाम था तुकाराम ओम्बले का.
जबकि हेमंत करकरे और उनकी टीम की मौत उस रात उन आतंकियों के हाथों मारे गए अन्य नागरिकों की तरह ही हुई एक मौत मात्र थी. क्योंकि शहीद वो कहलाता है जो तुकाराम ओम्बले की तरह सामने खड़े दुश्मन पर जान की परवाह किये बिना टूट पड़ता है. इस आक्रमण में हुई उसकी मौत को देश और दुनिया शहादत कहती है.
यदि हेमंत करकरे और उनके साथी शहीद हैं तो फिर उस रात आतंकियों द्वारा मारा गया हर नागरिक शहीद है.
आज यह विवेचन इसलिए क्योंकि कांग्रेसी इशारे पर साध्वी प्रज्ञा के साथ हेमंत करकरे द्वारा किये गए राक्षसी अत्याचारों और फर्ज़ीवाड़े की अदालत और जांच में उडी धज्जियां के बाद उजागर हुई अपनी साज़िशों पर पर्दा डालने के लिए कांग्रेस ने यह विधवा विलाप प्रारम्भ किया है क़ी साध्वी प्रज्ञा की रिहाई से शहीद हेमंत करकरे और उनकी शहादत का अपमान हुआ है.
मित्रों इस देश में अब शहादत का सर्टिफिकेट वो कांग्रेस नहीं बाँट सकती जो सरकारी किताबों में भगत सिंह, चन्द्रशेखर आज़ाद को आतंकवादी और नेहरू को महान स्वतंत्रता सेनानी लिखकर देश के बच्चों के मन में ज़हर घोलती रही हो.

Response to comments on: Kasab’s Birthday Gift

In response to my write up: Kasab’s Birthday Gift to US- Mumbai Blasts,  in a discussion group which also appeared on this blog on July 14,  one Mr. Chauhan, supposedly a Major General representing <Sainik Sangh> made several incidery remarks. Here I reproduce his comments with my responses. (His comments are in bold. My response start with >>>. are in italics and in navy blue color.)

Gaurang G. Vaishnav

Those who think BJP is the salvation are nothing but bania brahmin caucus in another demoniac form

 >>> Who said anything about BJP? Your prejudice starts with your fist sentence. Can you prove with figures that BJP= Bania+Brahmin? Are Advani, Bangaru Laxman, V. Naidu, Modi, Rajnath Singh, etc., Bania/Brahmin? How would you define demonic?

What does Modi know about running a modern State  He may have delivered for the fat profiteers and Hindu Jews which doesn’t make a State 

>>> You must be living in la-la land to make such a stupendous statement. Of course, you have not lived in Gujarat so your ignorance can be forgiven. What fits your definition of modern state? Bihar, UP, Orissa? 

What does BJP know about nationalism which is not obscurantism and building temples  ? The masses are in grip of renegade capitalism  which must be replaced by nationlism not Jews .

>>> I do not know why you keep harping on BJP when I have suggested that Congress be thrown out? Capitalism is an economic system, nationalism is not. Capitalism can be replaced with socialism, communism, etc. but not with nationalism. Are you aware that BJP  believes in Integral Humanism as an economic system? Do you even know what it mans and who propounded that concept? Please Google and study it. Suffice is to say that capitalism, socialism, communism, etc. have inherent weaknesses because they are not built around needs of human beings. Integral Humanism aspires to build economic system keeping human beings at the center.

 Does BJP know about nationalism? Who has stood for total integration of Kashmir with Bharat? Who has stood for uniform Civil Code? Who has maintained that there are hundreds of national heroes (who have been ignored by design) of freedom struggle besides Nehrus and Gandhis? Who had the guts to conduct nuclear explosion and stand up against mighty USA?

What a small vision hanging of Afzal Will this deliver the nation from every day shame? Just diversion

>>> Hanging one individual will not solve all problems, but then you can make that argument for any step that the government takes or does not take. Afzal Guru is a convicted terrorist. Terrorism is meant to sap a society of its confidence and lead it into submission. Keeping Afzal and Kasab alive despite court orders is hastening that process of submission. Therefore, it is not a small vision, but an effective prescription for one of or serious national maladies, i.e., the feeling of helplessness against abject terror. 

 In any case, unless you are against the rule of law, or have some personal affinity for Afzal, you would not question hanging of Afzal. 

Afzal is already a martyr with his poeple MANY MORE ARE READY TO FOLLOW HIM.

>>> Osama bin Laden was a hero too to millions of Muslims in Pakistan, Yemen, Nigeria, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Iraq, Malaysia, USA, UK, Bharat, etc. Where is he now? He was gunned down like a rabid street dog and is at the bottom of an ocean. Those who are ready to follow him will meet the same fate or worse. It is only a matter of time before present rulers in Bharat are replaced with a government that will not tolerate and mollycoddle terrorists- mind you, I am not saying BJP, it could be any party or combination of parties that will come to power and take the initiative.’ Then so called martyrs will be sent for a meeting with their creator because of the pressure that will build up from the suffering populace. Congress can do the same and win people’s hearts but to do that it has to first purge itself of its entire leadership which is anti-Bharat, anti-Hindu, pro-Muslim and corrupt to the core.

Is Modi ready to field his in retaliation?

>>> Why do you pick on Modi? When I am raising issue of fighting terrorism and asking that guilty be hanged, which is a central government issue, how does Modi figure in the discussion? Mr. Modi has proved his credentials by catching would be terrorists before they could inflict harm on the innocent. Compare Gujarat with Maharashtra and see the difference in number of terrorist attacks. Ishrat Jahan and Soharabuddin would have been garlanded and given ministerial posts, had they been in a Congress ruled state.

 Modi does not have to retaliate because he is proactive. he does not weigh his actions against how a particular community would feel or vote before he takes a step that he feels is in the interest of Gujarat and the nation.

Why cant BJP send out sallies  in return.

>>> Why is it BJP’s burden to send out “sallies” (I do not know what this word means but I assume you mean retaliating force”)?  Who is in power? Congress or BJP? Suppose, BJP were to take up your suggestion, you will be the first one to blame it as a Hindu terrorist party supported by Jews.

The French President  visited Kabul the other day and gloried the role of NATO in foighting terrorism. The next day ficew French soldiers were killed. BJP AND ITS BANIAS  Learn from PASHTUNS! 

>>> I will take your argument and turn it on its head to show its hollowness.. BJP or Congress can take the killing of the French soldiers to man that any action against terrorists would mean killing of Bharatiya soldiers and civilians. So, it would be better not to act.

 Further, we have a history of brave men and women, who have given their lives and fought on the battlefield within the bounds of Dharma. We do not need to learn from Pashtuns or terrorists who are nothing but modern day asuras and  rakshasas.

PEOPLE ARE NOW GETTING WISE AS TO WHO  SIT SNUGLY MAKING MONEY AND FIELD OTHERS TO FIGHT . GERMANS WERE RIGHT ABOUT THE JEWS WE HAVE SO MANY VARIETY OF THESE !

>>> Apparently you are a big fan of Hitler. That should preclude you automatically from this discussion because this group is for people who believe in democratic norms and  meaningful discussion.  

 You are right about people getting wise. They now know that it is the Congress and UPA that sit smugly and make billions through Commonwealth Games, 2G, Adarsh Housing Society and multitude of scams. Kalmadis, Rajas, Kanimozhis, Marans, Chidambarams, etc. are the glaring example of this rot and they do not belong to BJP. People are wizened to the fact that while these Congress demons are looting the nation, they feed the common man to the wolves, i.e., terrorists.

Mumbai walas are fools They listen  to perverted politicians such as the Home Minister and  do not demand his dismissal .

>>> In past, Mumbaiwalas have  taken scalps of their Chief Ministers and they will do it again. Have you watched 2008 film, “Wednesday” with Naseeruddin Shah and Anupam Kher in lead roles? There is a telling dialogue where Naseeruddin Shah, the common man says: “we are resilient, not by choice but by force because we have to go out next day and earn our livelihood.”  That is exactly why people go on with their routine even after the bomb blasts. But once this reaches a flash point, all bets will be off.

 The same happened last time and the sam w will happen again!

>>> So, what you as an individual will do about it to change the course? That “same will happen again” is a given, but the end results may not be same. Even a goat gets up on its hind legs when totally cornered or its kids are threatened. Once the patience runs out, events take unpredictable course and no politician or police force would be able to contain them. People in Egypt, Yemen, Libya, Syria, Tunisia, etc. are much more suppressed than people in Bharat. yet, they came to a point where they shed their fears and either brought down, or are in process of doing so, sitting government/dictator.

People get the rulers they deserve .

>>> That is a good dose of opium. You may be OK with the Government that you have gotten, millions of  Bharatiyas and I are not.

HINDU history is replete      

>>> A jaundiced person can see nothing but yellow. Perhaps, you have had no chance to read real history of Bharat. Like many others you might have been taught Macaulayian and Nehruvian history. This is a subject of entirely another discussion.

 Our history is of people who have wished well for the entire humanity, kings who gave away their kingdoms for upholding Dharma, soldiers who obeyed all dharmic rules of warfare even when fighting against those who had no concept of Dharma. Ours is the history of Rama and Krishna, of Arjun and Abhimanyu, of Mahaveer and Buddha, of king Puru and Pruthviraj, of Shankaracharya and Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, of Chankaya and Chandragupt, of Mirabai and Narsinh Mehta, Of Kabir and  Thiruvalluvar, of Shivaji and Rana Pratap, of Nanak and Guru Govind Singh, of Maharani Laxmibai and Tatya Tope, of Bhagat Singh and Madan Lal Dhingra, of Khudiram Bose and Jatin Das, of  Shyamji Krishna Varma and madam Cama, of Veer Savarkar and Subhashchandra Bose, of Lala Lajpatrai and Chapekar brothers, of Ramakrishna, Vivekanand and Aurbindo, of Sardar Patel and Gandhiji. This is just a sampling. Remember,  our is not the history of Jawaharlal, Indira, Sanjay, Rajiv, Sonia, Rahul and Priyanka. They are an aberration and a blot on our history.

chauhan, maj general   <gs@sainiksangh.org>

>>> With an organization named Sainik Sangh, last name  Chauhan and a title like Major General, one would expect from you valor, courage, indefatigable  confidence and deep love for motherland. One would expect you to lead from the front and not discourage those who are fighting. One should be excused if he/she is led to believe that the organization as well as your name and title are phony.

 

 Finally, you may not realize but Internet etiquette dictates that all CAPS or all bold text be not used in any correspondence. All bold is akin to shouting. I am sure that you wanted to discuss and not shout.

You seem to have pathological hatred for BJP, Modi and Hindus which is abundantly clear from your writing. Your disdain for Jews is a disease that led to Hitler’s massacre and second world war. You may think in narrow terms of Brahmin and Bania, I believe that we are all Hindus, first and last. I will gladly accept the intelligence of Brahmin, courage of Kshatriya, pragmatism of Vaishya and sense of selfless service from Shudra because, according to Purush Sukta, they are all parts of same body. We are all Brahmin, Kshatriya, Vaishya and Shudra; our real caste is whatever quality out of these four is predominant in our life at a given time.

 It is the Congress culture to divide the society in the name of caste and religion. Rise above it and join those who have come forward to end the misgovernance rather than standing on the sides and making baseless, derogatory statements.

Kasab’s Birthday Gift to us- Mumbai Blasts

July 13 was the 24th birthday of Ajmal Kasab who has been given death sentence by a Mumbai  Court for the massacre and mayhem in Mumbai on November 26, 2008.

Congress, ever mindful of Muslim votes cannot even think about hanging him, national pride,security and sanctity of the Supreme Court be damned.

Congress, under Sonia Gandhi cannot even think of hanging Afzal Guru, convicted for his part in the parliament Bombing in December 2001.  In 2004, the Supreme Court ordered that Afzal Guru be hanged. The execution was to be carried out on October 20, 2006.  Almost five years later, Afzal is very much alive costing the tax payers a pretty penny, thanks to Sonia Gandhi who rules her party and the nation with an iron fist hidden in a velvet glove.

So far the Government of Bharat has spent 310 million Rupees to keep Kasab alive. So, to thank the Congress led government, Ajmal Kasab’s handlers decided to give a memorable gift to people of Bharat.

Yesterday, on July 13, they offered bomb blasts during rush hour in three crowded locations  in Mumbai. 21 are dead and 141 are injured; some more may succumb to their injuries.

These numbers that we hear have become  routine and do not mean a thing unless one of them is your father/mother/brother/sister/husband/wife/uncle/cousin/friend. Numbers do not matter unless it is your leg or hand that has been blown to bits or it is your eye that is pierced by sharpnels. These numbers have no meaning unless it is your loved one whose body is set on fire by the blast.

The politicians who are principally responsible for this day because of their spaghetti spines when it comes to taking action against any Muslim, will mouth stupid inanities. Prime Minister Manmohan Singh a.k.a. captain sleeping at the wheel while the country is plundered and looted by his coalition Dharma partners, President Pratibha Patil, ever indebted to Sonia Gandhi for putting  her in  a place where no one can touch her for all the cooperative bank scams she was involved in- in Maharashtra, Sonia Gandhi, the Vishkanya, i.e., kiss of death for mother Bharat, Prithviraj Chavan, Chief Minister of Maharashtra, virtually a nincompoop dancing to His Master’s Voice from 10 Janpath, the home Minister, P.C. Chidambaram, who is too busy to find ways to stay out of Tihar jail with the noose getting closer by the day in 2G scam,  all these characters have come out with statements condemning the blasts and at the same time advising the hapless people to stay calm.

You know what? They are good at making these utterly useless statements because they have had repeated practice of making them in last few years. Friends, their words mean nothing, They do not give a hoot whether 21 or 2100 die in these blasts so long as their ill gotten billions are safe in Switzerland.

Solution? Let there be no more birthdays for Kasab. Create a nationwide pressure, such a pressure that the government would be either forced to hang Kasab and Afzal or would be shown the door.  Let us vow to give Kasab gift of hangman’s noose on his next birthday, July 13, 2012.

Can it be done? Yes. If Egypt can do it, Algeria can do it, Yemen can do it, Libya and Syria are about to do it, why can’t we?  History favors those, who seize the initiative.

Let us not wait for another blast.

On Secular Fatwas

A very balanced article on double standards of “secular” activists! – Moderator

MADHU PURNIMA KISHWAR, TNN Apr 22, 2011, 12.00am IST

The disdain with which leading lights of the anti-corruption movement – Mallika Sarabhai, Medha Patkar, Kavita Srivastava et al – are publicly threatening to dislodge Anna Hazare from the leadership role because he praised Narendra Modi’s rural development work in Gujarat indicates that the poor man was only being used as a convenient symbol that can be discarded as arbitrarily as he was chosen to lead the ‘movement’.

Human rights activists can retain their credibility only as long as they remain steadfastly non-partisan. To the person killed, it matters little whether the murderous mob was shouting ‘Lal Salaam’, ‘Har Har Mahadev’ or ‘National Unity’ as did the mobs that massacred over 10,000 Sikhs in north India following Indira Gandhi’s assassination. However, the secular brigade shows a consistent soft corner for those who kill under the Maoist or communist banner as well as those who verbally profess secularism.

Narendra Modi’s acts of commission and omission during the 2002 riots deserve the strongest of condemnations. Those crimes need to be impartially investigated and the guilty punished. Just as we are proud that our democratic system ensured a fair trial even for a publicly identified ISI-associated terrorist like Kasab, so also we should let the courts take the Gujarat trials to their logical conclusions.

Those who ask for Modi’s head would do well to remember that hordes of Congressmen in Gujarat gleefully joined the BJP and RSS goons who went around massacring innocent people.

The overall track record of the Congress in this matter is no better, if not much worse, than that of the BJP. In addition to the 1984 massacre of Sikhs in north India, it masterminded numerous other riots through the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s. None of the killers of politically engineered riots in Meerut, Malliana, Bhiwandi, Bhagalpur, HyderabadMumbai, Ahmedabad, Surat and scores of others were ever punished. The Congress also injected terrorism into Punjab by its covert support of Bhindranwale’s Khalistani brigades in order to wrest control of the SGPC that presides over well-endowed gurdwaras. It did incalculable harm to the Sri Lankan Tamils by creating a Frankenstein’s monster like the LTTE. The secessionist movement in Kashmir owes its origins and draws sustenance from the Congress party’s penchant for rigging elections to install puppet chief ministers.
