Is Modi suffering from Prithviraj Chauhan syndrome?

Is Modi suffering from Prithviraj Chauhan syndrome?

(Editorial in Hindu Voice, January 2016)

It is said that Prithviraj Chauhan, the Hindu King of Ajmer, pardoned his attacker Muhammad Ghori, a Muslim invader, many times. However, when Ghori defeated Prithviraj Chauhan at last, he (Ghori) ruthlessly killed Chauhan. 

In today’s context, it seems, this is exactly what Modiji is doing with his enemies - forgiving them of the sins they had committed when they were the rulers of Bharat. And when they are returned to power (if at all that happens), they are bound to lynch Modi, as Ghori did to Chauhan.

The Congress was hell-bent on defeating Modi in the 2014 parliamentary election. They used all sorts of invectives against him like “Mauth ka Saudagar”, “Ghanchi”, “Chaiwala”, “Chap”, etc. The Congress was making herculean efforts to put him behind bars, by cooking up many false charges against him, through out his tenure as the Chief Minister of Gujarat.

In spite of all these persecution, Modi has come out unscathed. No SIT, CBI or Court could find him guilty of any offence. On the top of it all, the people of this country gave him (BJP) 282 MPs, a comfortable majority.

But after becoming the PM of this country, Modiji has become a changed man. We are not able see in him the fighting spirit with which he faced all his opponents at the time of the election. Now, he has become soft and suave towards his enemies.

What was the need for him to call Sonia Gandhi and Manmohan Singh to his residence for tea? What was he expecting from them? Was the purpose served? For me, it was a complete surrender before the enemy. The Congress - the Mother-Son duo - wants to defame Modiji and the nation, through out the world. They do not want the nation to prosper. Hence, inspite of his request at the Tea Meeting, they have failed to ensure the smooth running of Parliament.

It is exactly like expecting good neighbourly relations with Pakistan. You make any efforts, however genuine it may be, Pakistan is likely to shoot it down and continue with its anti-India and pro-terror policies. (One has to wait and see whether the present efforts of India - to have better relations with Pakistan - will bear any fruit).

Similarly, inspite of the PM and the many ministers requesting Congress not to disrupt parliament, the Congress is bent upon blocking it, in one pretext or the other. They have successfully blocked the present entire winter session of parliament too, repeating the disruption of the monsoon session, holding up important Bills.

One feels that the Prime Minister is too considerate towards Congress and other opposition parties. The entire nation is aware that they are neck deep in corruption. Instead of taking action against the corrupt ex-ministers and putting them behind bars, Modiji is talking of only “development”. No doubt, development is important, but the people of this nation also wants those who involved in blatant corruption and misdeeds to be punished. Modi govt. has not taken any action against them. And they are allowed to roam around freely. 

Not only that, those who should be behind bars by now, are questioning the credentials of the Modi government, as though they are clean and honest. Had action been taken against them, they would have been running for cover by now and would not have dared to question the government. The indulgence given to these looters has emboldened them to make malicious and baseless allegations against the government and some of its ministers and chief ministers.

Luckily, Dr. Subramaniam Swamy has brought both Sonia and Rahul before Justice in the National Herald case. They both are now “accused on bail” in the NH case. There should have been many such cases against Sonia, Rahul, Priyanka, Vadra, Chidambaram, Hooda, Virbhadra Singh, Sheila Dixit, Digvijay Singh, Jagdish Tytler, etc. The list is endless. By this way, BJP can keep them tied to their cases with no time for them to dabble in national politics.

Modiji, and BJP, are loving their enemies - receiving Amir Khan, having tea with Sonia Gandhi,  trying to shake hands with Rahul Gandhi, etc. - and hating their friends who stood with him in his darkest hours. Modiji wants to be loved by Muslims and Christians, which will never happen, except a few exceptions here and there. On the contrary, helping Hindu causes (which he has completely neglected so far) will fetch him rich dividends at the time of elections.
With just 44 MPs (8%), the Congress party is holding Parliament to ransom. This shows the Speaker’s inability to run the parliament. What stops her from suspending/dismissing all those unruly MPs, and run the show with the remaining 92% MPs?

To defang the Nehru Dynasty, Modi govt. should immediately ask Sonia Gandhi to vacate 10 Janpath. 10 Janpath, similar to 10 Downing Street in London, was supposed to be the official residence of the PM. Sonia Gandhi is now just a MP. Hence, she  should be allotted another accommodation befitting a MP, and Modiji should occupy 10 Janpath.

While Modiji is being praised by the world leaders as the best Prime Minister India ever had, anarchist Arvind Kejriwal has the guts to call him  “a coward and a psychopath”. He has used the language of a Street Thug .  And he is allowed to go scot free.

Narendra Modiji should come out of the Prithviraj Chauhan syndrome and follow Bhagwan Sri Krishna’s advice, i.e. Vinashaya Cha Dushkritam (annihilating the wicked). Tolerating intolerance is not good. In a spiritual country which is 80% Hindu, we are hearing 5 times a day, even as early as 5.30 a.m., on loudspeaker the holloing “There is no God, except Allah”. Can there be a better example than this, for tolerance of Hindus?

Therefore Modiji should not bother about the hullabaloo about intolerance, created by the secular gang, and ruthlessly go after the corrupt and anti-nationals. Then, and then alone, people will trust him for his ability to govern, and he can hope for a second term.
