Honourable President Shri Pranab Mukherjee,

Please accept my sincere apology for taking a few minutes of your valuable time for the matter that is yet to concern you as of now. I know that you are still trying to feel at home amidst your new palatial surroundings. Moreover, there is a lot of pending work to do. But I, as a layman, request you to take out only a few minutes to read this letter which may serve as a reference point some time in future.

To tell you the truth, after a long time our country has got something to rejoice about. No, no, please do not misunderstand me. I am not talking about under-19 cricket team becoming the world champion by winning the world cup. In fact, I am talking about the Supreme Court’s verdict upholding the death penalty awarded to the lone surviving terrorist Kasab.

All the patriotic citizens of India are celebrating this verdict. Everybody is now relieved. The law has finally taken its course. The wheels of justice have come a full circle for Kasab and company for having waged war against our beloved country.

Our independent judiciary has delivered. Right from the lion-hearted policeman Tukaram Ombale who nabbed Kasab alive by risking his life to all the jail officials to all the public prosecutors and the judges deserve to be applauded and rewarded handsomely for ensuring that the justice is delivered. The families of the victims too must have heaved a sigh of relief.

The verdict must have sent a shiver down the spines of those who are secretly harbouring ambitions of waging war against India. The speedy execution of the verdict will forever seal India’s image as a soft state. Having said that the real test begins now.

As you are aware that amongst our political class there is a tendency to polarize society along the caste and religious lines to win votes. These folks have been playing one community against another since Independence. The country too has been suffering great losses in terms of everything on account of this short-sightedness. The fear is that some vested interests will try and play a bloody game by giving this verdict some political colour keeping the upcoming elections in mind.

My humble request to you is as the President of India, please do not allow this nonsense to happen. If and when the mercy plea of Kasab comes to you, without betting an eyelid please throw it out for this beast deserves no mercy. He has killed the innocents. He has shed the blood of those strangers who had never done any harm to him. The deadly bullets that left his automatic machine gun were meant to kill the human beings irrespective of their caste, creed and above all religion.

Does such a terrorist deserve any mercy? No, right? Instead he deserves to be sent straight to the gallows without any further delay. In fact, he has overstayed his welcome. He has eaten enough plates of Biriyani. He has watched enough Hindi films. He has hurt the pride of this country enough. Most importantly, he has murdered enough sons of this soil. Please spare no thoughts for such a terrorist. He is neither a human being nor he belongs to any religion. He is a death machine whose sole job is to snuff out the precious lives given by god.

Sir, you are the statesman of impeccable integrity. Your commitment to democracy and the esteemed post you are holding is beyond reproach. You know the impact of the mindless bloodbath. Being the honourable man you are, please do not let your countrymen down who are looking up to you to set an example by rising above petty opportunism to deny a victory to this country.

Thanking you for your patient reading.

Regards,

An Indian.

Blame it on Pakistan is the name of a quick fix formula used to sweep under the carpet misdeeds done by home-grown mischief makers belonging to the minority community. This ploy comes in handy especially when the elections are lurking round the corner and the eyes are on the vote-bank politics. This warped approach has been in practice since time immemorial.

This practice is at the very root of divisive politics that seems to have come of age now by sowing the seeds of communal hatred. Everybody agrees that the appeasement has come at a cost of alienation from the mainstream and overall development. The revolution can happen only with the help of education – the basic right of every child and when the awareness of this very basic right is compromised, what further can one expect?

If the Muslim youths are found guilty of inciting communal hatred, why adopt a soft approach? The law is equal for every citizen irrespective of caste, creed and religion. Then why turn a blind eye and pretend the root cause of the problem is a foreign country? Why this alibi time and again? If the guilty who are responsible for causing mass exodus of the North East people studying and earning their daily livings in a perfectly peaceful manner belong to an XYZ community, punish them severely. Let the law deal with them in the strictest possible manner.

What will happen if the law takes its own course without any kind of political interference? Every citizen will have faith in the law of the land. Those wanting to indulge in a similar mischief making in future will get a strong message. Nobody will accuse any political parties of appeasing a community for their political gains. In future, the subsequent developments will create an overall atmosphere of goodwill which will be conducive to long lasting communal harmony and peace. And over a period of time the communal hatred will dissipate.

But going by the current mood, the political masters stand to gain from the communally charged atmosphere. The gain will be in terms of a few million votes. When the political ambitions are at stake, why bother about the massages of peace and brotherhood? How many takers will such an outdated message find? One can always spread such symbolic peace massages after winning the elections and forming the government.

If people don’t understand this macabre game plan now, it will be too late for the communal hatred is spreading far and wide. The need of the hour is to tell the-powers-that-be strongly to stop indulging in the politics of appeasement. Punish the guilty harshly. Let us, as a peace-loving people and the citizens of India, take pledge that we will never do the deeds that bring shame and malign the whole community. That we will always keep the safety, security and reputation of our beloved Bharat Mata in our hearts and minds. And that we will fight for her till the last drop of blood is drained out of our bodies.

When this message gets ingrained deeply and firmly in the minds, there won’t be the need of any appeasement whatsoever. The villainous and harmful game of “Blame-It-On-Pakistan” will come to a sudden halt. And we all will be able to live peacefully and contribute significantly to the prosperity of the nation.

Jai Hind.
