Before the Lok Sabha elections, I remember some people saying on social media that the Congress is ready to allow Pakistan or China to reach Delhi as long as Modi is kept out. Perhaps it is time to take this literally. Earlier, I used to say that Indian secularism has been taking the following trajectory:
Hating Modi —> Hating Hindus —> Hating India
But now it seems that the secular brigade has already gone so far down this road that they have now crossed these levels and reached the next station:
Hating India —> Loving Pakistan
It’s happened before. As many as 65 Jaichands wrote a letter to President Obama asking for American intervention to stop Modi, remember? Clearly, that didn’t work. In their anger, Indian secularism has finally decided to take the nuclear option: asking for Pakistani help!
A few days ago, Senior Congress MP Mani Shankar Aiyyar had this to say in Pakistan (watch from 0:55)
Here is a translation of the relevant part in Hindi:
Mani Shankar Aiyar: When our Manmohan Singh was PM, Indo-Pak dialogue continued 3 whole years.
Pakistani interviewer: But sir, what is the way out now from the position we are stuck in?
Mani Shankar Aiyar: Remove him (Modi), bring us back.
Pakistani interviewer: But only you guys can remove him.
Mani Shankar Aiyar: Yes, we will remove him. But till then you will have to wait.
What a fantastic conversation between a proud Mameluk of Queen Sonia and a Pakistani? The most fascinating part of this conversation is that the Pakistani interviewer laughs off Mani Shankar Aiyar’s appeal for help and asks Congress to remove Modi themselves. Yes, Congress is more desperate to remove Modi than Pakistanis are!!! A disappointed Mani Shankar Aiyar tells Pakistanis that if they are depending on Congress to remove Modi, they will have to wait. Clearly, Pakistan was ready to wait, Congress wasn’t.
The questions here are obvious. What was Mani Shankar Aiyar expecting from Pakistan when he said “Remove Modi and bring us back”? What kind of help was he thinking about? And given that Aiyar was comfortable asking for such help openly, surely he had good reasons to expect a positive reply. Where did this confidence come from? Does it mean that such help has been received in the past?
Of course, it is most important to note that the Pakistani interviewer surely has no power to issue official directives to the Pakistani government, the ISI and the various terrorist agencies that report to it. Which makes the situation even more sinister: surely the Pakistani government will take note of such an appeal from a top Congress leader. The official Pakistani response to this appeal obviously will not be made public by their government. Which raises the sinister question: what is the actual response to Mani Shankar Aiyar’s appeal from the Pakistani establishment?
Many years ago, India’s most patriotic Pakistani reporter, Shri Karan Thapar had written this about Modi:
“Only the sudden removal of Narendra Modi can stop this. For he is the agent forcing this change. And whilst he’s with us, he will do just that. I have no doubt Indian politics after Sunday the 23rd is another country. We have to live with new challenges. Some of us have to accept new leaders.”
Hmmm…. “Sudden removal” of Modi? That was 2007. Back then, Modi was miles away from making a bid for Prime Minister. But the Queen and her Mameluks saw Modi coming. In a way, we must appreciate the Queen’s intelligence apparatus: few BJP supporters in 2007 would have seriously anticipated the phenomenal rise of Modi. But the Congress establishment anticipated it even before we did! And the dog whistle had gone out right then. And note the sentence “whilst he’s with us, he will do just that“. The expression “he is not with us any more” is a common euphemism for death and is even listed in Wikipedia (see here).
Say what you will about Karan Thapar, but this Pakistani reporter has a very solid command of the language of his overlords in England. He knows exactly what he meant by the words “sudden removal” and “while he is with us“. Yes, the dog whistle went out long ago.
Eight years later, the dog whistle from the Queen’s establishment has turned into a loud SOS. Will Pakistan respond? What is the view at GHQ in Rawalpindi? I don’t know…
