The instant CPI (M)’s senior politburo member, M. K. Pandhe, came
out with his warning to Samajwadi Party against joining the Man
Mohan Singh bandwagon, lest they lose their `Muslim voters’ in the
coming elections, both media and politicians of the pseudo-secular
joined forces with the Hindutva parivar to treat the use of the
very `word’ Muslim as communal, if not high treason.

The very next day both `The Times of India’ and `The Indian Express’
editorials were seething with anger over the gross indiscretion of
Marxist leader to bring in Muslim factor in national discourse. It
would appear as if the 150 million Muslims of India have no stake,
no voice, no concern with their own country’s most vital interests
and the selling of their countries freedom and independence to a
bunch of notorious foreign powers, whose designs on weaker nations
is too obvious to be so callously ignored, while ill-advised leaders
of Sonia Congress are pushing the nation into a future of wars and

It is regrettable that under the force of such adverse communal
demonizing of potential Muslim role in Indian politics, some Ulema
groups went defensive and declared that `we Muslims’ do not have
anything to do with the government decision on Indo-US nuclear deal.
That is the power of aggressive communal propaganda. However, saner
minds started questioning the line of argument, as if being Muslim
in India was some crime and to push any line of thinking by Muslims,
even with best of interest of their nation at heart is communal and
anti-national. Indian Muslims are full citizens of this beloved
nation of India and have every right to hold and give their own
independent opinion on national affairs, with whatever degree of
clout they can muster to freely influence democratic political
decision making.

As a matter of fact, Muslims do have a very important role to
develop their own line of thinking, in as much as they find that
the `Hindutva’ line of thinking developed over the time has been
markedly tainted with communal and anti-Muslim content. The Hindutva
Brahminical adopting of Israel and America, as their preferred
partners, has been motivated primarily as a reaction to their
animosity to Muslims. The choice of Israel as the new supplier of
security and intelligence products to India was primarily made as a
reaction to the internal anti-Muslim propaganda unleashed by the
communal Hindutva forces. Israel as an enemy of Muslim Arab is the
most suitable ally of the Hindutva and Brahminical worldview. There
are no other merits needed as long as Israel remains a sworn enemy
of the Muslim Arabs. India’s skewed foreign policy, keeping the Arab
world at arms lengths at the cost of even India’s most vital
economic interests, is directly motivated by `hate Muslim’ content
of India’s internal politics.

Just this week, the most audacious suicide attack on Indian Embassy
in Kabul is proof enough that the foreign affair policy makers are
heavily under pressure from the US and its allies, to push India
into a very dangerous area of civil war that India cannot hope to
come out unscathed. The quagmire of Afghanistan and its border with
Pakistan is sure to drag India into a future of constant upheaval.
Indian administration cannot fool the people, by giving out all
manner of concocted good face on its `constructive’ engagement in

Indian people are not geared for any misadventure of the
international kind on its borders, in which the Manmohan Singh
Government is dragging it, under US and Israeli prodding. The very
Idea of India is against such foreign misadventures and is certainly
against the very ethos of Indian society.

In practical terms, India is not ready for another Kandahar like
exchange of terrorists with its citizens in war zones of US
operations, and sooner or later, most probably sooner than later,
Indian government will realize the folly of succumbing to US
pressures to increase its exposure in Afghanistan and will be forced
by events to withdraw from the war torn area.

Regrettably, the hallmark of Manmohan Singh government is to make
private deals that could mortgage India’s long term future, its
freedom and independence to foreign imperialist forces whose
historical record, immediate past and immediate present, leaves no
doubt that India will be eventually mauled very severely by its
association with the western warmongers.

Those who have even a rudimentary grasp of world affairs cannot
ignore the stark fact that there is a serious fault line between
US/Israel/UK with their reluctant NATO partners on the one side and
the rest of world that includes Russia, China and India on the other

America and Israel’s relentless and unceasing efforts to subjugate
rest of nations that happen to populate between the so-called East
and West, and make an eventual move against China in particular,
will certainly force a fence-sitting India to choose between West
and East, through applying means fair and foul, and through carrot
and stick strategies.

The present government and even the whole of political class, so
deeply mired in political corruption of loot of national wealth, is
hardly seized of the natural and most obvious consequences of any
teaming up with the US/Israel/UK axis, much less interested in
taking the people of India into any confidence.

The abuse of executive powers by both BJP and Sonia Congress to rush
head over heels to conclude a strategic partnership with the
warmongering imperial forces, is a clear sign that this government
will not bother to debate the issues in public forums and seek the
express approval of the people of India, to such monumental paradigm
shift in independent India’s blind commitment to war games of the

In fact, India is being hijacked by an oligarchy of Brahminical
overlords that treat rest of people of India, including Muslims as
their vassals.

It is this arrogance of power that had forced the media and various
political groups to be incensed at the very mention of a `Muslim’
view on India’s dealings with the US.

There certainly seems to be a conspiracy to silence Muslims of India
to raise any voice against the rape of their country. Muslims had
fought the first wars of independence by shedding blood in all
theaters of engagements and it is natural that they will be called
upon to fight another war of independence to free the India of the
future from the stranglehold of the neo-imperialists.

So those who treat Muslim role as communalizing India’s foreign
policies are themselves playing communal games that are blinding
them from consequences of sleeping with the enemy that is stalking
our national sovereignty and integrity. Muslims should be proud to
be part of the alliance that opposes the wholesale subjugation of
our nation. Though the Left has its own political reasons to oppose
selling of India to foreigners, in as much as they are boldly and
courageously exposing the almost dictatorial and herd mentality of
the opportunist political groups, they are saviors of the nation.

The move to offer strategic partnership to India is fraught with
deception and fraud. India should not trust America, Israel and UK
axis, as they are all out to strictly follow the neo-con blueprint
of shaping a New World Order, that has no place for India except as
a mercenary power base to offer the blood of its Jawans to fight
proxy war on behalf of the Axis conspirators.

Some Urdu language commentators had tried to make out that Muslims
are only wary of President Bush and not averse to America as a
nation. These analysts are oblivious to the ground realities
prevailing in the US, where the neo-con American Jews have fully
laid down long term US foreign policy parameters and departure of
Bush would not change the essence of imperialist nature of America’s
relationship with other nations. There may be change of style with
the new US administrations, but the content will remain as
antagonist and exploitative as the Neo-Con laid out plans for New
American Century. Its recommended use of American fire power, in
conjunction with its allies will remain unchanged. It will be great
folly for the victims to try to search for the some chink in the
armor of their tormentors and lay back. Indian people should be made
aware of the notorious nature of US and Israel designs on India and
it will be the duty of Indian Muslims, that they should speak out,
even at the cost of their being branded as communal, as long as
their line of thinking saves the nation from a calamitous future.
