If the Congress is seeing a shrink about its endless string of failures, it is hard to tell whether their therapist is actually treating them or actively encouraging them to commit suicide. Whatever convinced the Congress party that batting for SIMI terrorists was going to help turn public opinion their way? Already the Congress was under a cloud over its response to the surgical strikes and now this?
Of course, we cannot even begin to speak on this subject without first paying tribute to the head constable whose throat was brutally split as these terrorists broke out of jail in Khandwa. Let us pause for a minute, drop everything else and think of him and his family. Like all of us, they must have had plans for a joyous Diwali. But…
Zara yaad karo kurbaani.
What was his name? Tell us, Madam.
Now let me know if you notice anything.
I don’t even want to spell it out for you. Yes, folks, this is India, circa 2016. This is where 70 years of poisonous propaganda has brought us. What’s in a name? Well, a lot. Remember this moment.
The Congress ecosystem went into autopilot, raising “questions” over the deaths of these terrorists. Keep in mind that this is exactly what they would have done with the surgical strikes, had the Modi government fallen into the trap of releasing the video. But this time I believe that the autopilot is sending the Congress into a deep nosedive. Here’s the Hindu:
“Activists”. Come on guys, you can do better. You could have called them “students”. They put the hint in the name of the organization and still the bozos at the Hindu’s internet desk could not pick up on that. Pity.
Although it is not immediately known how many of the “activists” were mild mannered children of headmasters, The Hindu was generous enough to put up their CVs for our perusal. A sample profile of one of these activists:
A precious young life snuffed out. Where will the barbarism stop?
Coming back to my original point, the Congress ecosystem can no longer help itself. The Digvijays and the Nirupams take it from here and they go on, hammering the last nail into the Congress’ coffin. Should the Congress wish to take this issue “to the masses”, the BJP counter-campaign practically writes itself:
“Should we have fattened these terrorists on Biryani?”
The BJP leaders don’t even need to say that line aloud any more. The masses can already hear it inside their heads. The Congress strategy is so supremely self-defeating that it defies attempts at rational explanation. Except for one.
Cricket fans will remember the infamous “Sehwag no ball incident” from 2010.
“Sri Lanka Cricket and offspinner Suraj Randiv have both apologised to Virender Sehwag for denying him a one-day century after a deliberate no-ball from Randiv ended the match and left the India opener stranded on 99, despite him hitting the delivery for six.”
Is the Congress ecosystem pressing the self destruct button in a pathetic bid to deny Modi the satisfaction of building a Congress mukt Bharat? Is Congress destroying itself proactively out of spite? We will never know for sure. But, just like in that ODI game, no matter what the Congress “strategy” is, remember that the result will still be the same:
