Rahul Gandhi Outburst Against the Ordinance, a Rarity in Policy matters of the Congress.

 Rahul Gandhi's rejection of the ordinance promulgated by the Core Committee of the Congress and the cabinet which includes Congress President Sonia Gandhi and Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh and the other very senior leaders, that criminal politicians cannot be thrown out of the elected representative ship, shows a rarity on policy thinking on the part of Congress's scion.

It is a welcome sign in the congress circle's as they were constantly looking towards Rahul take guard at the helm of affairs since he has been elevated as the Vice President of the Congress. Prime Minister himself has many a times repeated this in his interactions with the media, that Rahul Gandhi should now shoulder responsibilities, and the party is wholeheartedly behind him.

Since now he has taken a stand Ajay Maken, Congress leader and Minister, quickly backed Rahul's views on the subject and many more leaders like Shashi Tharoor, former UN Under Secretary General and Minister in the Congress Government at the centre echoed his views.

 As elections are drawing near, it is perfectly the right time for the congress party to rejuvenate it's cadres who are reeling under accusations of corruption in UPA2's tenure. If a young leader like Rahul Gandhi could show the way to the party, then it will be a huge booster for the congress party in the coming elections in 2014.

But the larger question will be whether it was a momentary outburst or well thought out response by Congress Vice President remains to be seen and could he resist the pressure from within remains to be seen. What changes he might bring to the Indian politics people would be closely watching him.

The Hidden Indian Massacre of 1948 in Hyderabad State of South Asian Sub Continent

 Recently a news report was published in the Indian media detailing how India's Army annexed Hyderabad State in September 1948 after a fact finding report of the time was hidden to bury the truth. The military action was taken after the ruler of Hyderabad, the Nizam, did not offered to join newly formed Indian state formed out of thousands of princely states.

After the end of world wars British started to pack their bags way back leaving, the Nizam alone to fend for himself, who all the time enjoyed autonomy under the British Colonial rule of  the Indian subcontinent.

This no acceptance of proposal of the newly formed Indian state led the then Prime Minister of India Jawaharlal Nehru to order for a military action cleverly dubbed " POLICE ACTION " so that there isn't any media internationally, particularly in the Muslim countries in the region or other pockets of Muslim dominated regions in the country.Also declaring a national emergency to carry out such an invasion.

It was hard kept secret, until recently the report eventually came out after a Right to Information application. The report was made by a committee formed by PM of India Jawaharlal Nehru to ascertain the facts on the ground. The chilling details of which can be now found everywhere in the media.

The horrific massacre was committed on innocent unarmed civilians.

 The resulting Military massacre left thousands dead in reappraisal kind of attacks against the Muslims.

Young, Women, Children no one was spared with a tag carrying a Muslim name. Wide spread murder, arson, looting and rape were committed and instigated by the Indian Army.

The  Sunderlal report claims 27,000 to 40,000 Muslims were killed in the massacre committed by Indian Military but actual Genocidal figures will never be known. Local police took active part willfully with vengeance.

This kind of communal politics is still prevalent in every nook and corner of India forming large electoral vote banks, where the ordinary voters are easily manipulated to vote on the basis of Religion, Caste, Reservations and election time sops like adulterated toddy and cash,  instead of development based, non-corrupt governance thus making any difference, India being a Democratic state still some 60 years after Indian Independence from Britishers.

This is just the kind of dispute the Indian state has with the state of Jammu and Kashmir bordering Pakistan in the North.

Kashmiris articulate the crimes committed by the Indian Army against women and children and does not trust their overtures. India and Pakistan went to wars thrice in the recent history with the dispute remaining unresolved. Subsequently the two South Asian nations went nuclear in 1998-99.
