Murderer without guilt ?
Let us examine some reports about the number of people who died when Nehru was ‘celebrating’ ! Reasons can be any , but the outcome was only one : millions were turned refugees overnight , three million died and about a hundred thousand women were raped ! What did Nehru do to stop such acts, and , did he issue an apology or take blame for what destroyed millions of families ? How can Congress have the audacity to call Modi a murderer ? The real power hungry & lusty murderer India ever produced was none else than Jawahar Lal Nehru ! Congress has lost its right to be called secular, when it divided India on communal lines in 1947.
P.N.: Inference above is based on the data quoted below, which is taken from credible sources only, and so the views are not personal but based on the data reported publicly in Media over the past years .
The best figures available suggest that about 100,000 women were abducted, mainly in Punjab. How many more were raped and killed, or casually cast aside, God only knows. (http://expressindia.indianexpress.com/ie/daily/19970801/21350223.html)
India’s Partition was uniquely tragic, no matter from which side of the border one looked at it. Consider the following facts. It is estimated that anything between two lakh and 30 lakh people were killed in Partition violence. Around 70,000 women were captured, abducted and raped. (http://www.deccanherald.com/content/270909/tragedy-partition.html)
Never before or since have so many people exchanged their homes. Slaughter sometimes accompanied and sometimes prompted their movement; many others died from malnutrition and contagious diseases. Estimates of the dead vary from 200,000 (the contemporary British figure) to two million (a later Indian estimate) but that somewhere around a million people died is now widely accepted. As always there was widespread sexual savagery: about 75,000 women are thought to have been abducted and raped by men of religions different from their own. Thousands of families were divided, homes destroyed, crops left to rot, villages abandoned. Astonishingly, and despite many warnings, the new governments of India and Pakistan were unprepared for the convulsion
As many as one million civilians died in the accompanying riots. ((http://www.bbc.co.uk/history/british/modern/partition1947_01.shtml) )
Who divided India ?
Hindus and Muslims and Sikhs lived together in relative peace and harmony. Problems of India were not solved by Partition but aggravated !
The `history’ of Partition seemed to lie only in the political developments that had led up to it.(http://www.nytimes.com/books/first/b/butalia-silence.html)
It is possible that Mohammed Ali Jinnah, leader of the Muslim League, simply wished to use the demand for a separate state as a bargaining chip to win greater power for Muslims within a loosely federated India. Certainly, the idea of ‘Pakistan’ was not thought of until the late 1930s. (http://www.bbc.co.uk/history/british/modern/partition1947_01.shtml)
Nehru, whose arrogance and insistence on the top job had alienated Jinnah, has been slapped down in a realignment of the Congress leadership: Gandhi joining forces with anti-Nehru conservatives like Sardar Patel and Chakravarty Rajagopalachari (Rajaji). Nehru had been collaborating closely with Lord ‘Dickie’ Mountbatten, sent as viceroy by the new Labour government to “cut and run” as quickly as possible. But the Nehru-Mountbatten axis is seriously discredited by a scandal about Nehru’s affair with Lady Mountbatten, including insinuations that the bisexual ‘Dickie’ was a willing participant in a menage a trios.
The partnership of Clement Attlee, Lord Mountbatten and Nehru hadn’t rushed through a premature transfer of power to satisfy their own personal and ideological ambitions?
What turned this patriotic, pro-Congress Muslim into the sectarian separatist of the 1940s? Two of his recent biographers, Ayesha Jalal, a Pakistani-American academician, and Jaswant Singh, a former foreign minister of India, have converged on the same answer: the arrogance and intransigence of Congress leaders—Nehru in particular—and the pro-Nehru bias of the last viceroy, Lord Mountbatten. “Partition was the last thing Jinnah wanted,” says Jalal, and she agrees with Jaswant Singh that his demand for it was essentially a bargaining ploy.
Two of Nehru’s closest colleagues have laid the blame for this breakdown squarely at his door. Maulana Azad called Nehru’s statement “one of those unfortunate events which changed the course of history”, lamenting the fact that “he is at times apt to be carried away by his feelings”. Sardar Patel, too, criticised Nehru for acting “with childlike innocence, which puts us all in great difficulties quite unexpectedly”.
Nehru himself maintained that he had acted out of the conviction that partition was preferable to a loose federation. He wanted to be master in his own house, free to implement his socialist policies through centralised economic planning; and the Muslim League, in control of large, autonomous provinces, would have been an unwelcome brake on all this. Most important of all was Nehru’s visceral hatred of Jinnah, recorded with brutal candour in his diaries: “Jinnah…offers an obvious example of an utter lack of the civilised mind. With all his cleverness and ability, he produces an impression on me of utter ignorance and lack of understanding…. Instinctively I think it is better to [have] Pakistan or almost anything, if only to keep Jinnah far away (http://www.outlookindia.com/article.aspx?287314)
We must consider that till 1940’s there was no demand for Pakistan ! So , it is clear that Nehru was the culprit and today, his DNA is doing the same ….. speaking about secularism and dividing the nation …
Also, let us not forget what Rajiv Gandhi had said justifying the mass murder of Sikhs after ‘dictator’ Indira Gandhi’s death .’ Rajiv Gandhi justified the carnage by saying that “when a big tree falls, the earth shakes”. http://indiatoday.intoday.in/story/mani-shankar-aiyar-on-former-prime-minister-rajiv-gandhi-regime-and-death/1/138765.html
We don’t need Gandhi family led Congress at all .. Time to act sane and not repeat the history again . And while you are reading this , Congress is planning to spend over Rs. 100 crores on 125th birth anniversary of this mass murderer – Nehru !

Let us throw out the Gandhi’s , India cannot afford to have them anymore
