Yogi Adityanand’s offer of body, mind, wealth and guns smacks seditious

On September 28 2015 seven members of BJP leader, Sanjay Rana’s family of the nine accused in the murder of Mohammad Akhlak had taken initiative in the attack on the house of the hapless. In response to the police investigation, the controversial Member of Parliament from Gorakhpur Yogi Adityanath offered mind, wealth and guns to the Hindus whom the police have detained.

On September 28 2015 seven members of BJP leader, Sanjay Rana’s family of the nine accused in the murder of Mohammad Akhlak had taken initiative in the attack on the house of the hapless. In response to the police investigation, the controversial Member of Parliament from Gorakhpur Yogi Adityanath offered mind, wealth and guns to the Hindus whom the police have detained. This is unambiguously seditious. He had formed the Hindu Yuva Vahini whose member Jitendra Tyagai said: “We will go and meet Hindus who are being harassed by authorities. We will provide them all possible help, be it tan-man-dhan-gun (body, mind, wealth and guns) if they are harassed.”

The burly youth’s look back in anger at the police at the gate of Bisada, Dadri is not only insolent but seditious true to the mandate of Hindu Yuva Vahini of the Yogi of Gorakhpur

This can create such a grave situation as seen in the following scene from Muzaffarnagar when similar groups of Narendra Modi Sena had obstructed the police from arresting criminals involved in killing Muslims.

Or the following scene when the Meerut district magistrate was injured on July 4, 2014, when the Jat Hindus wanted to hold mahapanchyat and he was doing his official duty. The first scene shows how the cortege is in procession when the police wanted to arrest the alleged killer of Muslims

There are more youths who are wanted in the killing of Akhlak

His daughter Shaista was reeling with shock when neighbors are known to her and her family was in the assault on her house. When her mother was molested her mother too was shocked and ran down the stairs in such berserk that she could not breathe. Her husband had gone to the remotest part of the room upstairs to escape from the bloody attackers who had yanked off the head of the sewing machine from the frame and were going to take him out. This was if needed to define, sheer terror. Tyagi’s logic is topsy-turvy as he gives the example of a Hindu who committed suicide a day before: “The one who slaughters cows are being compensated. Did they earn this money on their own? Why only Muslims are getting help? Why Jay Prakash has not been given any help?”

The offers of arms are for the Hindus of Dadri’s Bisada village of greater Noida outside Delhi. It is another feature of sedition that the locals of Dadri have mounted a siege of the village like Muzaffarnagar and were monitoring all the entry and exit points of the village and not allowing outsiders or unwanted. The Yogi of Gorakhpur has been host to Sunil Joshi, Riteshwar Bharat bhai and members of the Nepalese royal family who had a negotiation with extremists of Abhinav Bharat in training commandos and other acts against the constitution of India.

What has the government learned from Muzaffarnagar to prevent Sangeet Som from repeating it in Dadri?

The unruly scenes above and the nudging of judges who are pliant as during Modi’s rule in Gujarat and now in Delhi makes a grim reading of the unfolding scenario as Julio Ribeiro puts it: “[Jyoti]Salian’s lament on being asked to go soft on Hindu extremists accused of terrorist acts frightens us to believe that the country is steadily being led on to the path trodden by our surly neighbor on our western border. The masterminds of the 26/11 attacks are treated like heroes in Pakistan.

“We are not there yet, but if hidden hands nudge the judicial system to free murderers of the saffron variety, we will be soon.”

Today we don’t even think of what Som and the Yogi are doing as terrorism. But if another video surfaces that could prove them to be what they are we would be shocked as many were shocked when Hemant Karkare came upon the Abhinav Bharat. We [all Indians and not necessarily any one group] are made to believe they are culturally Hindus and holy men and therefore they are infallible. “But, the ATS had suddenly, unexpectedly and, I must add, fortuitously come across incontrovertible evidence, which included taped conversations, to prove that the Malegaon blasts, as well as the Ajmer, Hyderabad and Samjhauta Express blasts that killed nearly a hundred people, were conceived, planned and executed by a group of fanatical Hindus bent on revenge.”

The Hindu right has quietly and overconfidently under Modi and Bal Thackeray come to the appropriate right to revenge as their birthright and this is not terrorism.In fact, the world over revenge is a leitmotif of all kinds of terrorism unless it is too personal. The murder of Sunil Joshi was no doubt on a persona pretext that he did something to Lady Sadhvi Pragyasingh Thakur that no gentleman should even say in the presence of ladies. But she was involved in the murder because she removed the gun and other clues from the house of Joshi on the night of the murder itself. Indresh Kumar feared him for Joshi would have revealed the secrets of the conspiracy behind many terror attacks. What the Yogis and Soms are doing is “making our great country in the image of our neighbor.”

It is significant to note how people like Som and the Yogi can get away with the law of the land by devious means. What happened in Muzaffarnagar and later in Dadri can be compared with what Hemant Karkare came upon in his investigation. “There are conversations, kept in the laptop of Shankaracharya (Sudhakar Dwivedi). He used to record the conversation in secret meetings on his laptop, sometimes visuals too. I [Salian] asked Karkare, why is he recording? He is a plant. He wants to show it to someone, a conspiracy hatched in the dark. From those conversations we got to know the actual story, they wanted a central Hindu rashtra, they don’t recognise the Constitution of India, had their own constitution written, their own flag — even their Bharat Mata was an armed one.

When did you get the feeling that you are being asked to go slow?

“Last year I got a call from one of the officers of the NIA, asking to come over to speak to me. He didn’t want to talk over the phone. He came and said there is a message that I should go soft. I told him I will always support the cause of justice. Then, when we got our date for the MCOCA hearing. A day before our day when Mr. Mariar Puttam, a senior counsel, was to appear for us, an additional general from the state of Maharashtra came and said, “You cannot appear for us.” He started nudging Mariar.

“Then another additional general for the state, Anil Singh, came and said he will appear for the state and Mariar cannot. Both started to nudge Mariar — in the open court, both were nudging him. I am sitting behind him. I told Mariar not to appear. It was so insulting. Mariar finally got up and said to the judge, “Your lordship may decide. This is my instruction. I may be allowed to go out.” The judge said you have been here for many months we would like to hear you. He was heard, our affidavit taken. But the way NIA and the state of Maharashtra nudged him showed something very fishy.

If they were treating a senior counsel like that, I knew then something was seriously wrong. Ultimately the order came, the judgment given. It was horrible; after the order came no one called me. NIA hasn’t called me till today to discuss. They were so unhappy because MCOCA was retained.”[3] So the descent to the law of the jungle is the same in Muzaffarnagar [2013], Malegaon [2008] and what is happening in Dadri 2015. India is emulating Pakistan. And people like Nawab Singh Nagar, Srichand Sharma, Sangeet Som, Tarun Vijay, Mahesh Sharma and Sanjeev Baliyan would have their fieldwork done with impunity.

President Barak Obama could reach out to Mohammad Ahmad the boy who had a clock and was harassed by the immigration department and soothe the ruffled boy. The niece of the former boss of ATS in Maharashtra KP Raghuvanshi in Muzaffarnagar could reach out to her uncle to delay deployment of the army so that they could do a wholesome killing of Muslims! The PM of India doesn’t budge.
