(Retd.) Lt. Gen. S.K.Sinha, Former Governor of Jammu & Kashmir, is not an Old Fogey, out of tune with modern times for expressing his anguish at the tragic events at UOH, JNU, Patiala Courts etc. etc. The articles, he writes in Deccan Chronicle reflects not only his wide experience, but also a balance of mind, patriotic zeal, concern for the soldiers who guard our frontiers at field level overcoming all sorts of life risks and hardships.
Though his writings sometimes appear as though he is biased towards BJP, or right wing campaigners, we must realise that appearances can be deceptive. Prima facie, he is a fair person.
Here is a link to the Deccan Chronicle.Com, dated 26th Feb. 2016, "the-governor-general-s-files-a-crying-shame". This article is very much balanced. Link: Click to go to Deccanchronicle.com.
Two examples, I shall quote from this article, which shows his balance of mind.
"...Maqbool Bhat, responsible for killing Kashmiri Pandits and their ethnic cleansing; Yakub Memon, responsible for 257 fatalities in Bombay in 1993; Afzal Guru, responsible for the attack on the Indian Parliament; or Ajmal Kasab, the Pakistani terrorist who killed innocent citizens in the 26/11 Mumbai attacks have been hailed as heroes in JNU. ..."
"...The legitimacy of hanging can be questioned and different views expressed, but making these criminals seem like heroes is another matter. ..."
Kanhaiya Kumar, the president of the JNU Students’ Union, may have been wrongly apprehended.
qOvernight he has become a "national hero". I commend him for his forthright statement of loyalty to the Constitution. He is said to have made a similar statement in JNU when anti-India slogans like "Har ghar se Afzal niklega, Bharat ki barbadi tak jung rahegi, Pakistan zindabad" were being raised. I would have been happier if he had done something as president of JNUSU to counter such anti-national slogans or at least withdrawn from the scene as a mark of protest. I will not question these slogans being treasonable or seditious. Let legal luminaries split hair in regard to this.
ybrao-a-donkey's humble comments. वैबीराव एक गधे के विनम्र राय . వైబీరావ్ గాడిద వినమ్ర వాణి. You have every right to differ with me. I respect your right. आपको मेरे मत से भिन्न राय रखने के संपूर्ण हक है। मै उस अधिकार को परिपूर्ण रूप से गौरव देता हुँ. మీకు, మీ భిన్నమైన అభిప్రాయాన్ని కలిగిఉండే సంపూర్ణ హక్కు ఉంది. దానిని ఎంతో నేను గౌరవిస్తాను. However, pl. examine this donkey's views also. परन्तु एस गधे के दृष्टिकोण को भी अनुशीलन कीजिये. కానీ ఈ గాడిద దృష్టికోణాన్ని కూడ ఓర చూపుతో కంటజూడుమీ, క్రీగంట జూడమీ.
I totally agree with what Lt. Gen. S.K. Sinha has written about the happenings in JNU. I, wish to highlight that Mr. Kanhaiahkumar should have left the stage when he found that anti-India slogans were being given by the supporters of Afzal Guru. Alternatively, at least he should have objected to the raising of Anti-India slogans, even if that would have resulted in his being beaten up.
The Communist Leaders both Shri Suravaram Sudhakara Reddy and Shri Sitaram Yechury seem to be out of alignment with the defence needs of this country, and the National Priorities. Both Mr. Sudhakara Reddy and Mr. Sitaram Yechury, appear to be immature before Lt. Gen. Sinha. This should not happen.
I hope that Shri Sudhakara Reddy and Shri Sitaram read this article of Lt. Gen. Sinha, and rethink about what they have done at JNU, and what they are going to do in Parliament. It is also important that they should not be carried away by the ilk of Mr. Rahul Gandhi and some Congress Leaders. CPI and CPM have to change a lot. Afzal Guru and Yakoub Momen cannot be priorities for Left Parties. They should also think of supporting our Armed Forces working at Field Level taking high risks of their lives. CPI and CPM leaders should go to the boundary line Camps, and try to lift the morale of our soldiers.
If BJP Government is unduly saffronising our Universities, that can be separately dealt with.
I also wish that BJP Government should effectively and fruitfully utilise the services of Lt. Gen. Sinha, who still seems to have the verve to work energetically for the country. He deserves a better recognition, which the Congress Government of 1983 , for its own reasons, deprieved him by denying him the position of the Army Chief.
