Like most of you, I grew up believing that it was a man named Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi who led Indians to freedom. Then, after reading, viewing & listening; I began analyzing. It turns out that it wasn’t M.K. Gandhi who led us, Indians, to freedom. I think even Mr. Gandhi would have agreed with me. The fact that he chose to ignore the so called grand day of August 15, 1947 (and the true story behind it, which is seldom told) confirms it. Ahimsa never worked in the past. It does not work today and won’t work tomorrow either.
Note for dim witted people: None of this post would suggest that you should pick up a stick and start beating people for the heck of it.
Pakistan attacked Indian soldiers and beheaded them. Indian government is choosing the path of ‘Ahimsa’. It means they won’t do a bloodbath as an ‘answer’ to the attack. This isn’t the first time Indian soldiers have been killed; and the Indian government’s stand only ensures ‘safety’ to Pakistani soldiers. It basically indicates – we are ‘ahimsa-wadi’, you cut our soldiers and we won’t mind. We’ll only do a ‘verbal assault’.
The Indian Government won’t even do a verbal attack! Why? Because the Pakis know all the Swiss Bank details of these politicians and they use it to blackmail them! It’s so easy for them to scare the hell of these Indian leaders by threatening to ‘reveal it all’.
Look at Israel! Look at the way they protect their soldiers and people. Do you think Israel would survive even for a day if they go ‘Ahimsa’ way?
Indian Government’s ‘Ahimsa’ stand is nothing but an invitation to more Himsa.
I don’t believe in Ahimsa anymore. Just kick the enemy just where it hurts the most and shut them up. That’s how you achieve ‘Ahimsa’.
