The Pseudoliberals who till recently basked in secular glory by vilifying Hinduism and bashing everything it stands for have a new cause now - Kashmir freedom. The separatist cry for "Kashmir Freedom" has suddenly found much needed support from assorted armchair Pseudoliberals. It makes sense coming from the group which believes patriotism as last refuge of the scoundrel and the concept of Nation-State to be anachronism. It was Arundhati Roy(the mother Pseudo) who claimed herself to be an “independent, mobile republic”, while protesting the nuclear tests.
Nation was shocked when Arundhati Roy declared that Kashmir needs Independence from India while attending a Azadi rally in Kashmir. Not to be left behind Vir Sanghavi of HT also have taken up the cause. Vir Sanghavi thinks we are hanging on to Kashmir because of our misplaced machoism!! The other reason he gives for Independence of Kashmir is because valley has only a population of 4 million that is 98 per cent Muslim. So why hold on to it? Going by the same logic why are we holding on to Siachen? after all no one lives there!
Nation needs to be on guard against such fringe elements who in their zeal to increase their "liberal quotient" provide intellectual support for separatist movement. If it was communist party of India who provided intellectual support for creation of Pakistan during Independence movements, its the pseudo liberals who have donned the mantle now(though CPM/CPI is working hard to hold on to number uno pseudo liberal position).
Such Individuals who provides moral/intellectual support should be charged with abetment of crime under section 121 of IPC which deals with Waging, or attempting to wage war, or abetting waging of war, against the Government of India. According to this section whoever wages war against the Government of India, or attempts to wage such war, or abets the waging of such war, shall be punished with death, or for life or/and shall also be liable to fine.
Then whom am I saying this to? Afsal Guru is still alive and may walk free....
