Jaitley betrays himself, or BJP's Truth?

None can accuse me of being wrong even if they accuse me of being a doomsayer. Another recent incident vindicates my perception about the thought-process in the higher echelons of BJP. Can you imagine that an empty-suit Kapil Sibal should ever have the gall to accuse someone of doublespeak. Well a BJP high-politician has gifted an opportunity to do exactly the same to the Congressman.

Another empty-suit, this time from BJP, Mr. Arun Jaitely, a colleague of the Thayee (Ms Sushma Swaraj, For her performance, see here, here and here) is alleged to have remarked that Hindutva was just an opportunistic tool for the BJP. The exact news from the Hindu reads:

...“Pressed on the question of Hindutva, Jaitley argued that Hindu nationalism ‘will always be a talking point' for the BJP. However, he characterized this as an opportunistic issue,"...

My readers will recall that long ago Mr. Govindacharya was shunted out of BJP for calling Mr. Vajpeyee merely a "mask" of the BJP, while Mr. Advani was the "real face". Mr. Jaitely, being one of the men of Mr Advani, has now betrayed what the "real face" of BJP is.

I have been very critical of Advani for his rants, see here, here and here. I have been repeatedly saying that the Sangh Parivar and the BJP are deceiving their devoted foot-soldiers who have willingly sacrificed again and again for their organizations.

If BJP, starting from just two parliament seats, rose to a government-forming party, it was owing to their Hindutva claims. Mr Advani used to exhort crowds which used to chant "JahAn rAm kA janma huA hai, mandir vahIn banAyenge" "We will make the temple at the birth-place of Ram". Lakhs of Kar-sevaks gathered from all parts of India. Several young men sacrifized even their lives. But these self-proclaimed leaders of the Hindus, are so treacherous, that Mr Advani described the structure-demolition day as the saddest day of his life, and now his empty-between-the-ears protege, Mr Jaitley reveals that Hindutva is merely an opportunistic tool for the BJP.

We all love to hate Mr. Jinnah, but realize that Mr. Jinnah did not cheat the Muslims. Despite being whatever he was, an English educated secular Muslim, he fought for the creation of a Muslim nation. Mohandas and Jawahar cheated the Hindus. They gave a nation to the Muslims, while they gave the Hindus a "Secular (read Minority Appeaser) nation". An unsuspecting citizen may have felt that the BJP, with some of its top brass (Advani and Jaswant Singh) being admirers of Jinnah, would at least not deceive their self-chosen constituency, namely, the Hindus. But the citizens' gullibility has proved to be costly. The BJP has, time and again, betrayed the Hindus. To be fair to the grass-roots workers, it may be so that they have no say in what the top-brass empty-between-the-ears leaders blabber, and it might well be so that these workers feel betrayed and hurt. But that is besides the point. The BJP with its current-top is not just headless, it is treacherous!

The BJP needs a revolt from within now. Either those who are devoted to their heartfelt cause of the Hindus, must leave BJP, or they must cleanse the BJP of the current scum. I personally prefer the former. However, for those who prefer the latter, I would recommend that they should ensure that the least the BJP should do is to make some one genuinely pro-Hindu its head. Mr Narendra Modi could be a possible choice. However, the Hindus need to be guarded. Mark my words, Mr Modi is not a right-winger! He too is left-of center! Thus, he could any day betray his "secularism"! Nevertheless, he is the best that the BJP has now. So on one hand they need to bring Mr Modi at the helm, and then criticize him for being soft on some of the very crucial issues, which he is.

I would repeat what I have said earlier:

O Hindus, realize that no politician is representing you! So you need choose and send politicians from among yourselves. Make new politicians, make new political parties. Encourage people with spine to become your representatives. Otherwise you will be led by a bunch of Mohandas and Jawahar clones. And surely they will lead you to your doom!
