NAJIB AND HIS UNPREDICTABILITY CORRUPT ARITHMETIC OF THE UMNO AND MAHATIR’S CRONIES

To be or to behave, that is the question!
Character is what you are and reputation is what people think you are! This is the biggest truth… And the one I live by… I have always believed in fortifying my character instead of worrying about what the world perceives of me… It is no coincidence then that Howard Roark from Ayn Rand’s classic The Fountainhead remains my favourite fictional character… I’d rather be true to my core values than sell out to every thorny situation that I might encounter in life…
The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is struggling with an unsolvable riddle. Although the Supreme Court’s position on the Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi was followed by loud proclamations of triumphant joy, the BJP knows that if Modi does come ‘clean’ in the long run, his aspirations of being the Prime Ministerial candidate will hamper the party’s prospects in the next national elections.
As the case against Modi proceeds towards the decisive verdict, the party knows that the controversial CM hasn’t received a clean chit from the Supreme Court. But the party is screaming from the rooftops, claiming that Modi haters and Modi baiters have been silenced at last. Modi’s critics, on the other hand, are fully aware that the trial court will assess the report of the Special Investigation Team (SIT) which will be submitted ‘only’ after the latter takes into consideration, the report filed by the amicus curiae. The trial court will give this SIT report its due before arriving at a conclusion. Hence, Modi isn’t a free man by any yardstick of judgment. Not yet, at least.
The problem before the BJP is this. If the trial court believes that Modi must be prosecuted after it scrutinises the SIT report and also hears petitioner Zakia Jafri, the party will be guillotined for premature celebrations. The party’s overenthusiastic approach will be attacked by its political rivals. Criticisms will pour in from every quarter, and that can only weaken the BJP since a Modi minus a ‘clean chit’ will erode its vote bank. Among those who might drop the BJP like a hot brick are the anti-Congress voters who continue to believe that the party is wrongly slammed for being pseudo-secularist. Should 2002 lead to a verdict that finds Modi guilty of wrongdoing, many such voters might rethink their ballot-box strategy.
But, what if Modi walks free, as his supporters believe he might? Not known as someone with modest ambitions, he will definitely believe that he is in the race for being the candidate for Prime Ministership. The BJP cannot antagonise Modi, at least not officially, Gujarat being a major contributor to the party’s coffers. But the party has many members who don’t support the man, while all its allies will not be expected to express their unconditional fondness for him either.
Modi is perceived as a hardliner by his critics, both within and outside the party, and such people will find his leadership impossible to accept. Also, BJP considers itself to be a ‘democratic party,’ and it uses this phrase to demolish the Congress’s barely concealed reality of dynastic leadership. What democracy means, in this specific context, is that the party doesn’t have a pre-decided candidate for Prime Ministership. There are many, ‘equally qualified’ candidates in the fray, right from the veteran L K Advani to Sushma Swaraj. Whether or not the party accepts, Modi’s addition to the list will be viewed as unacceptable intrusion: by some, if not everybody.
Although the BJP insists that Modi has the ability to be the national leader, the Gujarat CM hasn’t shown many signs of being quite there yet. His political approach and contribution to Gujarat’s development – although his critics affirm that the progress has been community-specific in many cases – does have its loyal following in his state’s voting constituency. But the leader certainly doesn’t have the sort of mass base that is required to be the front-runner in the race for a candidature.
If Modi suffers a legal setback, the BJP will have a serious face loss. If he emerges triumphant, the party won’t know how to deal with his newly acquired clean chit. For the BJP, it’s problem time. And, there is no solution in sight.
But of late, my dear wife has brought to my notice that that we don’t live in such a simple world anymore! In today’s times, reputation seems to be as important, if not more, than character. One could be doing a satyagraha in public and doing unmentionable things in his private sanctum. One could be a Godman in public but a conduit for arms dealers in private. One could be a spiritual guru in public but defiling the modesty of a woman in private. It’s no more about what you are, it’s more about what you are projected to be.
Almost everyone has a dual existence. One for the people in general and one that only he can see in the mirror… Which begs the question…What is more important? Your reputation or your character? You live with others for a few sporadic hours a day but u live with yourself 24/7.. So wouldn’t you rather be a good guy than pretend to be one?
Personally, I feel the world would be better off if people worked harder on themselves instead of what people think of them. Of course, I have suffered at times because I haven’t really given a damn about what people think of me. In fact, when I directed my first film Rice Plate, at the premiere itself, my friends were like – Dude, you’ve directed this film??? Ha ha no wayyyyy…. And I had to convince them that I had actually made it! It’s probably because I have the image of a happy go lucky guy who doesn’t have the depth or maturity to make a film on the sensitive issue of communal strife…But I’d rather be able to do what I do than project that I can do it!
Like there are no free lunches in life, similarly, no act can hold up for ever… You can fool some people sometimes but you can’t fool all the people all the time… The mask will fall! So let’s all work towards bettering ourselves instead of just painting a beautiful yet fake picture of ourselves.
To end it, let me share a brilliant line I heard yesterday from the doyen of acting Naseeruddin Shah. This has nothing to do with the matter of my blog but I just have to share it with you. He says about the legend Dev Anand, “Blood doesn’t run in the veins of Dev Saab, celluloid does.” Wow! Would love something like that said about me when it’s time to pass the baton!

Senior IPS officer Sanjiv Bhattsays there is nothing in the Supreme Court order in the Gulbarg Society case that should give chief minister Narendra Modi reason to celebrate. Bhatt made this remark in an open letter to the chief minister on Wednesday; the open letter was in response to the open letter written by Modi on Tuesday to “six crore Gujaratis”.

Terming Modi’s plans for a three-day fast for peace, harmony and unity in Gujarat as “completely misleading”, the suspended police officer said: “It seems you (CM) have completely misconstrued the judgement and order passed by the honourable Supreme Court of India and it is very likely that your chosen advisors have once again misled you and have in turn, made you mislead the ‘six crore Gujaratis’ who look up to you as their elected leader.”

Bhatt had earlier accused Modi of wanting to teach Muslims a “lesson” after the Godhra train-burning incident in 2002. He had filed an affidavit in the Supreme Court accusing Modi and also casting doubts about the functioning of the Supreme Court-appointed Special Investigation Team (SIT) into the riots that followed the incident. He had said that after the Godhra incident he was summoned along with other senior officers and told to lie low as emotions were running high among Hindus. Bhatt was suspended by the Modi government in August this year for not reporting to work for nearly 10 months.

Full text of Sanjiv Bhatt’s open letter to Narendra Modi:Sanjiv Rajendra Bhatt
Indian Police Service

Dear Shri. Modi,

I am glad you chose to write an open letter to the ‘Six crore Gujaratis’. This has not only afforded me a window to your mind but has also given me an opportunity to write to you through the same medium.

My dear brother, it seems you have completely misconstrued the judgement and order passed by the Honourable Supreme Court of India in Criminal Appeal No. 1765 of 2011 arising out of S.L.P. (CRL.) No. 1088 of 2008 viz. Jakia Nasim Ahesan & Anr. Versus State of Gujarat & Ors. It is very likely that your chosen advisors have once again misled you and have in turn, made you mislead the ‘Six crore Gujaratis’ who look up to you as their elected leader.

Let me as a younger brother-Gujarati, help you decipher the Judgement and Order that has led to unequivocal gloating and jubilatory celebrations among some sections of the political spectrum. It has been stated in your letter that “One thing is apparent from the Supreme Court’s judgment. The unhealthy environment created by the unfounded and false allegations made against me and Government of Gujarat, after 2002 riots, has come to an end”. Let me clarify that even by a long shot, the order of the Honourable Supreme Court has nowhere, even remotely, suggested that the allegations contained in the complaint filed by Mrs. Jakia Jafri were unfounded or false. The truth is that the order of the Honourable Supreme Court is in fact, a very major leap in the direction of delivering justice to the hapless victims of the Gujarat pogrom. As you are well aware, Mrs. Jafri had approached the Honorable Gujarat High Court with a prayer for registering her complaint as an FIR. The said petition was disallowed by the Honourable High Court of Gujarat. Mrs. Jafri, therefore, approached the Honourable Supreme Court of India by way of a Special Leave Petition against the order of the High Court. The Honourable Supreme Court directed the SIT to look into her complaint and subsequently also directed the learned Amicus to examine the evidence collected by the SIT. At the end of this long and arduous exercise the Honourable Supreme Court has not only allowed the Appeal of Mrs. Jafri and directed the SIT to virtually treat the complaint of Mrs. Jafrri as an FIR, but has also directed the SIT to file a report under section 173(2) of the Cr.P.C. Let me clarify for your benefit and for the benefit of your Six crore brothers and sisters of Gujarat, that this report under section 173(2) of the Cr.P.C. is colloquially known as Charge-Sheet or Final Report. The honourable Supreme Court of India has also directed the SIT to place all the evidence collected by it, including the reports of the learned Amicus before the magistrate empowered to take cognizance. I am sure you will appreciate that in order to let the law of the land take its due course, this was the best option available to the Honourable Supreme Court as per the scheme of the Code of Criminal Procedure.

What the Honourable Supreme Court of India has given to Mrs. Jafri is much more than what she had originally prayed for. The order over which some of us are gloating in feigned glee, is in fact, a very cleverly worded order that takes the perpetrators and facilitators of the 2002 carnage a few leaps closer to their day of reckoning. The false bravado comes across as a very smart attempt to mislead the gullible people of Gujarat and instil a false sense of confidence in the political rank and file. Please be assured that we will see a very different picture as the actual import of the order starts settling in and takes judicial effect.

As one of the ‘Six Crore Gujaratis’, I feel deeply pained and cheated when the likes of you, consciously or inadvertently, mislead the people of Gujarat for ulterior motives. The theory propounded and practised to perfection by Paul Joseph Goebbels, one of Adolf Hitler’s closest associate and Reich Minister of Propaganda in Nazi Germany, can definitely work with the majority of the populace for some time. But all of us know from historical experience that Goebbelsian Propaganda cannot fool all the people for all the time.

I fully endorse your realization that “Hate is never conquered by hate.” Who would know this better than you, who has served this State for the last one decade; and I, who has served in the Indian Police Service for the last 23 years. I had the misfortune of serving with you during those days of 2002 when the dance of hatred was choreographed and perpetrated at different venues in Gujarat. Albeit this is not the appropriate forum for me to discuss and reveal the details of our respective roles, I am sure that both of us will be getting ample opportunities before appropriately empowered fora to disclose our knowledge about the dynamics of hatred in the realpolitik of Gujarat. I hope you and your cronies, within and without the Government, will not hate me more for this.

I cannot agree more with you when you say that “the credibility of those who have been spreading lies and defaming Gujarat has come to its lowest ebb. The people of this country will not trust such elements anymore”. But my dear brother, you seem to have got it entirely wrong as to who are the ones spreading lies and defaming Gujarat. To my mind, Gujarat has gained infamy not because of the hapless victims who have tirelessly crusading for the cause of justice and truth, but because of the despicable actions of the people who sowed and cultivated hatred to reap political and electoral benefits. Please give it a thought. Introspection can prove to be very revealing at times.

I am deeply touched by your concern and efforts to “further strengthen Gujarat’s environment of peace, unity and harmony.” Thanks to you and your kinsmen, Gujarat has been free from any large scale eruption of communal violence since 2002. The reasons for this may not be very obvious to our fellow ‘Six Crore Gujaratis”. This is my 24th year in the IPS. I was allotted to the Gujarat cadre during a time when the State was passing through the throes of widespread and sporadic communal violence. Having been baptised by fire, I have been since trying to understand and deal with the likes of you, who deal in the divisive politics of hatred. It is my well founded observation that the polity of Gujarat has now crossed the stage where communal violence can accrue electoral benefits to any political party, as the process of communal polarisation is very nearly complete in Gujarat. The experiments in the divisive politics of hatred have been very successful in the Gujarat Laboratory. You and your likes, in the political arena, have been largely successful in creating divides in the hearts and minds of the “Six Crore Gujaratis”. The need to resort to any further communal violence in Gujarat is already passe.

In a constitutional democracy like ours, it is incumbent upon the State to act in Good faith at all times and under all circumstances. Over the last nine and a half years many friends have fallen prey to the misleading campaign that the Gujarat Carnage of 2002 was a spontaneous reaction to the condemnable action at Godhra on the fateful morning of 27 February 2002. The Newtonian Law was never abused more. You had resorted to your knowledge and understanding of Newtonian physics in March 2002 and had sought to apply it to polity and governance at the peak of the Gujarat Carnage of 2002. But what you might have deliberately missed then, and what many of us seem to be inadvertently missing now; is the universally accepted principle of governance which mandates that in a constitutional democracy, an avowedly secular State cannot be allowed to be partisan. It was the bounden duty of the State to have anticipated and controlled the possible Newtonian reaction, if any; not orchestrate and facilitate systematic targeting of innocent individuals! Be that as it may, as an expression of solidarity with your stated objective of spreading Sadbhavana in the land of the Mahatma, I resolve to join you in your Sadbhavana Mission. What better way to do this than helping the truth to come out and let the spirit of justice and goodwill prevail. As all of us understand, there can be no Sadbhavna or Goodwill without truth and justice. I hereby reaffirm my resolve to contribute my might towards the restoration of Sadbhavana in the administration and polity of Gujarat.

But let me warn you that genuine heartfelt goodwill is something we cannot demand, buy or extort…we can only strive to deserve it. And it is not going to be an easy task. The land of the Mahatma is slowly but surely coming out of its hypnotic state.

As the most powerful person in Gujarat you may think that you do not need to feel accountable to the perceptions of all sections of the community. But believe me, history has proved time and again, that power without genuine goodwill is a path fraught with dangers…it is also a path of no return.

Samabhava is a condition precedent for Sadbhava. Governance by equity and goodwill should not only be the first article of your faith but should also be the last article of your creed.

The truth is more frequently than not, a little bitter and not very easy to swallow. I hope that you will take this letter in the true spirit in which it is written and you or your agents will not indulge in direct or indirect acts of retribution as is your wont.

In the words of Martin Luther King Jr. – Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. The spirit of the hapless victims who have been struggling for justice in Gujarat may occasionally flag but it will not be supressed by any amount of false Goebbelsian propaganda. The struggle for justice is never easy anywhere in the world…it calls for everlasting patience and unfailing perseverance at all times. The spirit of the crusaders for truth and justice in Gujarat is epitomised in this poem by Bhuchung Sonam, an alumnus of M.S. University, Baroda.

I have principle and no power
You have power and no principle
You being you
And I being I
Compromise is out of the question
So let the battle begin…

I have truth and no force
You have force and no truth
You being you
And I being I
Compromise is out of the question
So let the battle begin…

You may club my skull
I will fight
You may crush my bones
I will fight
You may bury me alive
I will fight
With truth running through me
I will fight
With every ounce of my strength
I will fight
With my last dying breath
I will fight…
I will fight till the
Castle that you built with your lies
Comes tumbling down
Till the devil you worshipped with your lies
Kneels down before my angel of truth.

May the kind God give you the requisite strength to be equitable and benevolent towards one and all!

Satyamev Jayate!

With best wishes.

Yours sincerely,

(Sanjiv Bhatt)
