Anti CAA Protest Imapct

There are some serious developments taking place abroad with regard to massive social unrest that is taking place in our country and also pertaining to human rights violation going on in Kashmir that’s now entering into its fifth month.

The first development is Islamic summit at Kuala Lumpur on December 18, 2019 where Malaysian president Mahatir Mohammad lambasted India for tampering with its secular character. The nonagenarian leader, who is widely respected world over, has called India’s claim over Kashmir as fraud and called Indian forces as occupation forces in Kashmir.

Mahatir Mohammad also talked about Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) in India and linked it with 1.78 million Hindu populations in the country. His words obliquely pointed that if he disenfranchised these Hindu populations, what could be the fall out.

Close on the heels of the KL Summit, the Organization of Islamic Countries (OIC) has announced to hold a special meeting in Islamabad in April 2020 to discuss Kashmir issue and Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) in India. The 57 member OIC had earlier made its comments on India’s moves on Kashmir and asked it to take back the abrogation act and it has recently made same comments on Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) in India.

These major announcements, first at the KL summit and now by the OIC, are a wake-up call to the mavericks of power siting at the ‘Delhi Darbar.’ There are sleepless nights for finding ways and means how to do damage control exercise. The government of the day is looking for Muslim friends in Islamic countries to sober down the resolution that may be announced in Islamabad in April.

There is a probability that the OIC members can ask all the Indians to pack off from the Gulf states and also a moratorium on the sale of crude oil to India. That’s enough trigger for the people of the country to take charge and unseat those who got fraudulent majority through rigged EVM and are hell bent to ruin the country.

Well, some may laugh at my kite flying of ideas, but then examples are galore when Indians had to face such hardships before. In 1962, in Burma, when General Ne Win who assumed power through coup, had asked Indians to pack off from his country just with the clothes they were wearing. It was a mammoth crisis that India had to face as well as the hardship Indians living there faced. India had to arrange aircraft and ferries to take back its citizen from that country.

Then on August 7, 1972, Ugandan dictator Idi Amin demanded that Ugandans with Asian ancestry (some 60,000 Indians) leave the country within 90 days.

Now, in order to defuse any such crisis that may lead to operation “Air lift,” once again there are two comments made by two non-state actors that needs to be dissected.

The first statement comes from RSS spokesperson, Ram Madhav, who said that Jammu and Kashmir will soon get back its statehood status. His statement assumes significance because he is ‘nobody’ in the BJP government, and yet he is making such profound statement and that too with great deal of authority.

The second statement comes from RSS supremo Mohan Bhagvat who says that Pakistani’s are brothers and India must make peace with Pakistan.

So if we piece together these two statements that have come one after the other by the non-state actors of India, it reflects the agony of the Hindu mind that sits in the Islamic belly.

Everyone knows that after Balakot Air attack and abrogation of Article 370 in Kashmir, India Pakistan relationship has dipped to its lowest ebb. Indian Army Chief Bipin Rawat says that situation is so bad on the border that any time war can break out with Pakistan.

Our beloved Prime Minister has vowed to teach lesson to Pakistan and has ruled out any talks with Pakistan till it shuns the path of cross border terrorism in India. In such a context, what is the need for the comments made by the non-state actors? Obviously the mandarin of state power in New Delhi foresees some big announcement going to be made by the OIC. So, it has egged out these two statements in order to change the direction of the discourse in India.

So these developments in India and abroad that is interlinked is related to protests in the country and the message is that the din and clatter of street protesting youth are not falling on deaf ears. Its fallout is going to be huge for the country and these voices of protests is a signal of a storm that is brewing up going abroad that may blow our country. So even though it looks all is well but will it be well in some time to come needs to be watched.
