Mr Arvind Kejriwal a former Income Tax officer, Magsaysay award winner, hailing from Haryana, started his activism as a maverick crusader but, today grown in to a political force to be reckoned with. Though, his father Sri Gobind Ram Kejriwal was an RSS sympathiser, his journey was flagged off with a seemingly sincere cause, but skewed himself so badly that landed him in the cluster of fringe pseudo rights activists of Batla House & World Vision kind of NGO’s. How he launched his movement with Vande Mataram, Bharat Mataki Jai, Inquilab Zindabad etc and how ended up on the laps of leftists, and moving with Islamic and Christian groups is all a tall story.
Before he floated the Aam Aadmi Party, he was ably supported by his NRI sympathisers, who provided him a monthly financial aid of Rs 25,000/ to meet his family expenditure, and lend him hand loans to repay Rs Nine Lakhs plus dues to his former employer, the IT Department.
He made his debut by skilfully associating himself with Anna Hazare, Sri Sri Ravi Shanker, and Baba Ramdev in initial days of his activism. He had also approached a Delhi based Church and was about to invite RSS Chief Ram Madhav to the dais of Anna’s hunger strike, but later backed off from the idea for reasons well known to all.
It was beyond doubt, that huge RSS volunteers and Sri Sri Ravi Shanker’s followers supported Anna and Kejriwal, in every corner of the country. Not to forget the event that Kejriwal met LK Advani seeking BJP s support when Anna agitation was at peak (now repeatedly attacking BJP as communal party). When the andholan was taking a good shape, some amazing transitions took place.
Kejriwal meekly surrendered to the media bullying. Kejriwal succumbed to the media accusation of ‘the andholan being heavily saffronised’ In order to keep himself off the accusation he first removed the Bharat Mata flex and dumped behind the dais as if Bharat Mata was then exclusively belonged to Hindus alone, not for the Nation in entirety.
Later he along with his associates met Jama Masjid Imam Syed Ahmed Bukhari and pleaded for the community support. However Imam openly dubbed the andholan as änti-Islam, much to the upset of Anna and Kejriwal
In the first place, being a self righteous ideal leader, Kejriwal should not have approached Imam of Jama Masjid, instead, but ought to have defended Anna, vouching that Anna’s call was for the entire Indians, not aimed at any one section of Indians. Such a fitting reply would have enhanced his stature, but he surrendered timidly.
By then many suspected Kejriwal of being an agent of Maobadi’s. As rightly assumed, his outer coat started peeling off and inner ‘red’ exposed after the formation of AAP. By then he could manage to win many followers, fooling them to believe in his ‘nationalism’
AAP has no political ideology except attention grabbing of media & pseudo intellectuals!
Probably AAP is the first political party to have been launched without any party ideology. Till date it is elusive on this issue, as this is the only convenient way to deceive unsuspecting people, and can conceal his leftist-oriented anti national agenda.
Kejriwal’s senior partner and mentor Mr Prashant Bhushan openly advocated and supported the cause of separate Kashmir. In a public meet on Kashmir held in 2011, Bhushan shockingly and cowardly backed the secession of Kashmir. Later he dubbed India’s premier agency IB of being infected with Hindu extremists and defended banned SIMI in a most shameful manner. These utterances shocked one and all, but main stream media chose to ignore it.
Another shocker: Kejriwal’s open support to Batla House fake encounter theory. In a letter addressed to Muslims in an appeasing tone, he endorsed Prashanth Bhushan’s stand in support of Batla House fake encounter theory.
Another shocker His support to Kudankulam anti nuclear protest led by UdhayKumar and his Christian Missionaries in Tamil Nadu. Kejriwal rushed to Tamil Nadu and demonstrated his open support to the agitation. This move was purely a publicity stunt only to get some media coverage in Southern states.
By then the nation was wondering why he chose to associate himself with Christian and Muslim outfits on contentious issues.
Kejriwal is setting a dangerous anti national precedent even surpassing Congress party
Two reasons can be presumed behind his change of colour:
1) Kejriwal must have masqueraded as a Gandhi an nationalist right from the start in a thoroughly unsuspicious manner or
2) half way through, he might have thought that a pro minority anti BJP/ to some extent anti-Hindu stance alone can minimise the media’s ambush on him and can muster good coverage by the media for his growing toddler the AAP
If it is, first cited reason, we have to counter him vigorously or
If it is, second cited reason, we have to write him off, considering him a branch of Congress, who entered the fray with a sole purpose of divide the anti incumbency votes.
Whatsoever be the reason Kejriwal is dangerously playing in the hands of Jihadi outfits hurting millions of patriots, at the cost of national security and integrity.
Time to tame this national threat before it grows in to a monster Godzilla!
