|This is the text of his comments|
I have recently come across a friend’s reaction for my blog on ongoing Kashmir issue. He has a completely delusional and contrived position about the issue which extends to supporting violence. He didn’t mention my name but I have mentioned his, which is Puneeth Reddy Mandadi, instead of calling him an unemployed engineer and a Civil Services aspirant. I would appreciate if he acknowledges me the next time. In the light of him wanting to serve us all, there is a duty on us to enlighten him because, we are definitely not ready for sympathizers of violence and people who degrade their own mother land for petty reasons to be our servants.
I have produced his comments in verbatim along with my reaction.
It was about stone pelters and why sympathising them in the valley(J&K), first thing J&K any day is a part of India which is non negotiable(ARTICLE 1 INDIAN CONSTITUTION there shall be no secession only territories will be acquired)
Firstly, it’s difficult to understand half baked and improper sentences. In my post I have clearly stated with utmost clarity that I don’t support stone pelters, be it for reasons as serious as the issue in Kashmir or as trivial as a University protest. There are different forms of protest, but this way of protest which is violent has consequences and that is pellet shots.
How can anyone agree with a form of protest that involves violence? Whatever is the demand, using violent means to protest is not something that is permitted under the law of any land in the world we live in. Therefore I don’t sympathize or empathize with stone pelters. Your views of sympathizing with these pelters are highly alarming in the light of your Civils aspirations and your views can be considered as borderline naxalism.
Secondly when you ppl want to revoke all the cases and allegations against the students from Telangana universities who were agitating against GOI and then the government of united Andhrapradesh, why cant you sympathise some young juveniles and some young indians who lost sight because of the pellet guns
Yeah for me a regionist and religionist are both ar equally insane and in both the cases they were young fragile minds which were badly influenced by fanatic forces
(Oh, the grammar again)
I hope the absurdity of this statement is not lost on all of you because our friend here just equated Telangana with Kashmir. Kashmir moment has for long camouflaged itself as a regional issue in the guise of a secessionist moment. It is in last 10 years that this secession moment has turned into a moment with extreme religious views. As I am sure you are all aware with all your attempts of preparing for Civils, a religious moment can never be compared with a regional moment. Religion is a veneer which can often degrade into lowest form of depravity like ISIS and Taliban. A movement within the framework of existing laws and moments outside that framework have severe levels of barriers separating each other. Therefore, your reference to Telangana moment (to which your Grandfather devoted most of his life) is an insult to the people’s movement of Telangana. This moment to create a separate Telangana was within the framework of our Constitution and the young people who fought for it had utmost faith in the system of this country unlike the people you want to get into bed with.
The Telangana moment was one of those rare occurrences in the modern history of this country which touched every soul. A woman living opposite to our house has expressed her support to this moment by including the slogan of Jai Telangana in her rangoli. This moment has influenced such women who are usually skeptical about politics. I assure you that there is no other moment equivalent to this in the post independent India other than the fight against the emergency which has touched so many people from every walk of life.
So please, whatever be the reason for your post to challenge me, which is legitimate, please do not bring in your personal prejudices, whatever they may be and against whomever they may be and do not insult “Mother Telanagna” by degrading it to a level where you compare it with Kashmir which is a moment against this country and against whatever we stand for. Being a Telangana bidda have some regard for the land that you were born in. Don’t ever compare this great moment which adhered to the principles of Constitution and ethos of our law to a moment that is masquerading as struggle.
Our friend doesn’t just stop from comparing two incomparable examples but even goes a step ahead and seeks sympathy for those young Indians who pick up arms or should I say stones against the nation which injure security forces. May be, our friend here lives in his own illusions where pelting stones and rebelling against your nation is permissible and also sympathized. The bottom line is that only a moron justifies an oxymoron. For stone pelting please refer to my first explanation.
The bottom line is “Should is shudder in fear or hang in shame for having had a friend like you” who equates Telangana biddalu to separatists or for the fact that you want to be a Civil servant with these dangerous thoughts.
And the most funniest thing is comparing j&k with palestine ar u islamophobic or wat???
The only obvious funny thing here is your blindness to reason and also to plain English. I stated that Kashmiri Muslims borrowed this great art of throwing stones from their brothers and sisters in Palestine. As far as English language is concerned that is where the comparison ends. I have no doubt as to the validity of that assertion. Our friend here is most certainly has his limitations when it comes to the matters of common sense. The only thing I equated between Kashmiri Muslims and Palestine Muslims is the connection forged by stone pelting, which also happens to be an irrefutable point. First he thinks quoting a fact is funny and secondly, he also thinks that it makes me Islamophobic. Well, my dear just quoting an example of a Muslim population belonging to a region doesn’t make Islamophobic, hating them and not wanting their existence would make me one.
As you are very well aware of my political position with regards to my support to Israel, I have also been sympathetic to the senseless suffering that Palestine children and women at the behest of violent forces.
Finally J&K issue shall be resolved within the framework of the constitution but not completely consolidating the power on the will of the people, you should pacify them rather than crushing them with your extremist rhetoric.
You know what; you got two things right with this one line, the grammar and its support to my entire argument. I see that you have got a lot of things jumbled up here from equating stone pelting to empathy and to then again indulge in a delusion that violence has to be addressed with inaction. As far as I understand the Constitution of India, it stands against violence and secession. However, what you wrote now does not have any bearing to your initial gems of wisdom because, where violence is sympathized and empathized. But remember this, there can be only one framework under law to deal with violence and that is restoration of order.
Dear Puneeth, in India power is always consolidated on peoples will which they express through the ballot. India as well as Jammu & Kashmir have both expressed their will in the recent elections and that has bestowed the government legitimate power to impose curfew and to repel violence of stone pelters by using whatever means necessary. Thankfully it does not include pacifying anti India elements. If you have imagined some other process of consolidating power then you should urgently find a country that follows a system of your delusions because here we believe in the will of people. As I see that you have a fascination for the word crushing, it is you who is crushing us with these extremely poor and dim-witted statements more than anything or anybody.
PS: I really hope your Civils preparations are going on in the right earnest. One small suggestion, please prepare well for writing in English as your grammar seems to be slightly awry.
