Mandate muscle

 Foretelling the future is always a dicey business; you see storm clouds, you expect rain and sometimes it does and sometimes it does not rain. But in certain instances, the future can be predicted. What Adolf Hitler did to the Jews and countries of Europe came as a surprise to the world, but not to some.

The Anschluss of Austria on 12th March 1938 whereby Austria was made a part of Germany was viewed as the German people uniting as one nation. Hitler “relieved” the “persecuted” German population in Czechoslovakia by occupying the Sutedenland on 1st October 1938. On September 1st 1939, he invaded Poland and while all attention was focused on the invasion, he took over Czechoslovakia on March 1939. These events heralded the murder of 6 million Jews, dragging the world into war and causing the deaths of approximately 80 million people. Until the invasion of Poland in 1939, Neville Chamberlain, the Prime Minister of Great Britain was living in a fool’s paradise and believed that Hitler would be appeased with Austria and the Sudetenland. So too was Stalin, the Dictator of the Soviet Union. Up to the invasion of the U.S.S.R. by Germany on 22nd June 1941, he was supplying oil and raw industrial materials to Germany.

All of Hitler’s moves were foretold in his autobiographical book,“Mein Kampf”. His belief in the superiority of the Aryan Race, that the Slavic Countries were nothing more than “Lebensraum” (living space) for the Aryan Races and that the Jews were responsible for the defeat of Germany in WW I. His intentions were clear to those who understood and Winston Churchill understood. Churchill was the only political leader who kept warning everyone of the danger Hitler posed to Europe and the world. But his cries fell on deaf ears.

A similar story is being repeated in India. The R.S.S. Agenda has been there for decades, for all to see. The supremacy of their interpretation of Hinduism in the Indian Subcontinent. The Uniform Civil Code; the ban on cow slaughter and the abrogation of Article 370 from the Indian Constitution etc., are different manifestations of their overriding desire to create a “Hindutva”hegemony in India. The rule of the Hindu upper class over India and, eventually, Pakistan.

The storm clouds formed over India ever since the B.J.P., under Narendra Modi and Amit Shah, took over the reins of power in India, 5 years ago. The storm clouds have broken and brought the rain of chaos and uncertainty in Jammu and Kashmir. The effects of this dubious abrogation of Article 370 are still to manifest themselves, but that they will be far reaching and disastrous is a given. But the clouds still hover over the rest of India.

Hitler began with Austria, Poland and Czechoslovakia and continued until the world was embroiled in war; he started with the Jews, Communists, homosexuals and the Gypsies and continued with the German intellectuals and ended up jailing all who opposed or he imagined, opposed him. 

Dubious men are emboldened every time their dubious deeds succeed. The Ideology of the R.S.S. provides the road map of the B.J.P. It has started with the dismemberment of Jammu and Kashmir and its reduction to a Union Territory, directly controlled by New Delhi. Next will be the turn of the Indigenous People of the Northeastern States; our Constitutional protection will, sooner or later, be stripped away. Then the Southern States will have the Hindi Languages shoved down their throats. After the Muslims and Christians have been persecuted to their satisfaction, they will turn on the Buddhists, Sikhs and Jains, in extension of their “Ghar Wapsi” Agenda. Last will come the turn of the Dalits and O.B.C.s. For Hindutva is predicated on the Hindu Laws as laid down by Manu; and the Caste System is the basis of these laws.

Fascism demands uniformity and blind obedience, it brooks no dissent. India will be turned into one nation, with one law and one religion for all. All this is possible because of the blind obedience of some; and Nagaland is chock full of blind fools who insist on living in a Fool’s Paradise under the motto, “It cannot happen to us!”

Our politicians are fixated on the lie of “Regionalism” yet they cannot envision a government without a National Party. Both the N.P.F. and N.D.P.P. are guilty of consorting with the Devil for personal gain. I am no supporter of the Congress (I) but both these parties have managed to create the hoax that aligning with the Congress (I) is surrendering their, “Regionalism” but allying with the B.J.P. will protect Nagaland. You cut off your noses to spite your faces.

I have seen the true face of the enemy of the Nagas, Nagaland and India. I have read and understood their intentions. I hope for the best but prepare for the worst. May God watch over Kashmir, Nagaland and India. I leave you with the words of the German Lutheran Pastor, Martin Niemoller:- First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out- Because I was not a Socialist. Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out- Because I was not a Trade Unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out- Because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me, and there was no one left-To speak out for me.
