What’s the price of treachery? 30 pieces of silver? Well that was the going rate in the age of Christ. With inflation in 2004 it comes out to 240 billion rupees. Yes that’s what our beloved Prime Minister gifted to the state of Kashmir. The reason is known to us: it has been repeated ad nauseum by the liberal jhola crowd: Kashmiri Islamic terrorists are misguided youth—let’s create jobs (hand them money) and they will come back to the mainstream of society.
For successive generations we have been throwing money at the Kashmiri Islamic population hoping to buy their loyalty. We have given them privileges way beyond anything provided to Indians from other parts of the country. They have rewarded us with death and disloyalty: from celebrating Pakistani Independence day to the organized massacre and property-grabbing of Kashmiri Hindus their “misguided” efforts have shown no signs of abating.
Even as the Prime Minister doled out unbelievable sums of money Kashmiris by and large stayed indoors boycotting the Indian PM. But not his money !Oh no…on the contrary some Kashmiris (who I suppose were failed the physical endurance test at terrorist training camps) complained that they wanted “call centers” to be set up in Kashmir and desired a share of the development pie. In addition to of course the small amount of 240 crores.
In contrast, a year ago, the President visited refugee camps of Kashmiri Pandits where he went through the rigmarole of mouthing platitudes and promises. Of course he did nothing. It should be remembered that these Pandits, despite having lost everything, were proud enough not to ask for dole. All they wanted was justice.
And well this is justice for them. A gift of gargantuan proportions to their tormentors. Being a permanent member of the UN Security Council won’t make us a superpower. Being able to stand up to terror will. But for now we are bootlicking the Fidayen. India is shining ! Yes sir it is !
