Sushilkumar Shinde: Indian Home Minister gone crazy

23 Jan

Sushilkumar Shinde Home Minister of India - CartoonBefore we start blasting Mr. Shinde for his shameful remark, let’s try and understand what office he is holding in the current ministry of India. Mr. Shinde is a politician from the state of Maharashtra and is currently the Minister of Home Affairs in the Sonia-Manmohan government. The Minister of Home Affairs commonly referred to as the Home Minister is regarded as number two in seniority, next to the Prime Minister of India. Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, who actually could have been the first prime minister of India after the independence, was the first home minister of India. The importance of Home Minister in India is proven by the fact that the portfolio in past have been held by many former prime ministers and presidents of India. India’s police force comes under the office of the Home Minister.

On January 20, 2013 during an All India Congress Committee(AICC) meeting in Jaipur, Shinde went a little too far while trying to impress the Congress leaders and gave a shameful statement which in a way humiliated the office of Home Ministry and raised question marks on his capabilities of being the Home Minister of India. He said “Reports have come during investigation that BJP and RSS conduct terror training camps to spread terrorism. Bombs were planted in Samjhauta express, Mecca Masjid and also a blast was carried out in Malegaon. We will have to think about it seriously and will have to remain alert.” BJP (Bharatiya Janata Party) is another Indian political party and is also the biggest opposition party against the ruling Congress party. While Mr. Shinde was trying to impress his party men by speaking against the opposition party, he had no idea about the magnitude of impact his statement would have on the people of India. Naturally BJP and RSS were quite upset by his remarks; most importantly the remarks had the potential to disrupt the peace and harmony of the country. Clearly Mr. Shinde with his statement wanted to win the hearts of minority Muslims of India who according to him have been at times mistakenly dragged into terrorism acts which were actually executed by the people trained by BJP and RSS.

Shinde’s remark went international when Mumbai attacks mastermind and Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) founder Hafiz Saeed for whom the US has announced a $10 million bounty, told a press conference in Lahore that India always resorted to propaganda against Pakistani organizations but it now stood “exposed”. Congress party, who initially supported Shinde’s statement, after the uproar in media, is now trying to distance itself from the Home Minister. Home Secretary RK Singh who reports to Shinde, in an effort to rescue his boss said “We have names of at least 10 persons involved in Samjhauta Express, Mecca Masjid and Dargah Sharif blasts who were associated with the RSS.”

It’s a shame that a minister whose prime job is to maintain law and order in the country comes up with a statement which can disturb the peace of our country. Thankfully we Indians are now mature enough to understand that such kinds of statements by ministers don’t have any ethical value. Gone are the days when the ministers’ values and actions were given the prime importance by the Indian citizens. Common man on the street knows the kind of games these minister play to stay in office for few more years. We Indians very well know the dual standards of these ministers and their provocative words; it makes us even more sad to see the kind of people running our country.

Is Sushilkumar Shinde fit to be the Home Minister of India?

Salman Khurshid – Shameful law minister of India

17 Oct

Salman Khrushid - A shame law minister of IndiaSalman Khurshid is an Indian politician belonging to the Indian National Congress, a lawyer, and a writer who has been elected from Farrukhabad Lok Sabha constituency in the General Election of 2009. He is presently the Cabinet Minister of the Ministry of Law and Justice and Ministry of Minority Affairs.
It has been revealed and proved by media that Salman Khrushid and his wife Louise Khurshid have been involved in misappropriation of funds by Zakir Hussain Memorial Trust for physically challenged people associated with him and his wife.

The ruling party Congress strongly defended its minister Salman Khurshid and social activist Arvind Kejriwal questioned this and alleged that the Trust misused the funds alloted by Government with the help of 34 documents with forged signatures.

On October 16, 2012, Mr Khurshid appeared to threaten Mr Kejriwal about his proposed visit to the minister’s constituency of Farrukhabad in Uttar Pradesh. Mr Kejriwal says he will inform voters there about the allegations of graft confronting the minister.
“I don’t give a visa to go there but it’s a long road to Farrukhabad. It is 300 kilometres away (from Delhi). He can get there…but how will he return?” asked Mr Khurshid at his Delhi home on Tuesday night surrounded by his supporters. “I am trained as a lawyer…to work with ink and pens…but it is time to replace ink with blood,” he added.

How can a Law minister of India even use such words, really shameful. India is truly in hands of bad people.
