Before doing surgical strike on Pak, we need to do it on our traitors: Says senior journalist Salil Gewali

The road to a victory must be undisclosed.
More so, when our enemies within the country
are more insidious, more intelligent,
more brutal and more warlike.

After the terrible Pulwama attack by Pakistan sponsored terrorists, India is apparently standing up. Yes, it is practically gearing towards the better strategies to “hit the evil heads”. True, the realization that the enemies are getting more “brutal” and more inhumane than ever before should make India realistic and visionary.

Of course, our “battles” to fight against are many, because the adversaries are of various kinds.  While India should send its army deep into the terrorists’ hideouts in Pakistan, India should also “spare its thought” in dealing with those forces who eat and drink here but their hearts ache for something others. There are an increasing number of forces which even try to disestablish the nation and its integrity. One feel, it is not proper.

What more? When the questions of sedition are raised against those dangerous forces then the media comes forward to denounce the whole country. Are Mr. Kanhaiya  Kumar, Umar Khalid, Anirban Bhattacharya, Shehla Rashid Shora, Mr. Jignesh Mewani, Arundhati Roy, Mehbooba Mufti, Omar Abdulla, ….  and lot many leaders from Kashmir….. raising the voices not pleasant to the nation ”?

Some have systematically misled and “incited” our youths which is contrary to the ethos of  Indian nation, sometimes directly and sometimes indirectly. But mind, all these people are lovable sweet-hearts of the media. The “wrong adventures” of those forces make the majority of Indian intellectuals more cheery and lustier! Each anti-nationalist “scream” by these leaders never get wasted. It is effectively used to degrade the nation, demean the culture and denigrated the religion!

The notion of “discrimination” against the particular community or particular religion is in fact created in the newsrooms. The idea of “intolerance”, which was coined suddenly by those people to attack the majority, just vanished into thin air when the same term was applied otherwise!

              My serious question here is —  has India practically failed to treat its country’s citizens lovingly? Has India ever discriminated its citizens on the basis of religions and languages? Absolutely not. Here in India minorities are provided especially facilities, they are well caressed and pampered than the majority.

                      But still, the elite intellectuals and media houses blame the government or certain parties and organisations, and deliberately “ferment the anti-nation” feelings. Bhakt, Sangi are to two terms to belittle any persons who show love to the nation. Who knows, after few years from now, it might be considered as a crime to praise the country and its culture. Please watch out, enough is enough! India should not faff about any longer, rather it should find ways to come down heavily upon such dangerous forces. Bluntly speaking, India should deal with those subversive forces with equal seriousness !

Well, the recent three successful strikes by India on 26th February should not be a case of joy either. Because today’s joy could bring a load of sorrows tomorrow! Thank God, no Pakistani civilians were hurt, and let that never happen because they are innocent. Let’s always consider the innocent civilian as our own brothers-and-sisters!  What is most important is the “silent preparedness” for the battles. It can only ensure an easy victory.  The noises only contribute to shaking the firmness and determination of our military forces.

                 Is it not too childish that we get prior information as to the plans and modus operandi of our fighters on WhatsApp and Facebook these days? I think it is too disgusting, it is ludicrous. The TV channels round the clock struggle to broadcast almost every inch of the army’s movement. Why are the sensitive action plans discussed to the bone in the newsrooms?

                Please kindly note we have an equal number of enemies within the country.  Those within the countries may be working to weaken India and its ethos rather than making it stronger. The road to a victory must be undisclosed.  More so, when our enemies within the country are more insidious, more intelligent, more brutal and more warlike.
