Now we are talking!

It took the Akalis some time – after that fortuitous leakage in London about the SAS connection with the 1984 attack on the Golden Temple  – but yesterday they have finally popped the obvious and important question: India should declassify its own documents re that affair:

However all this is drama only for them because of the coming elections.  In which the current favourite (the experts say) is someone who spilled in 2002 the blood of thousands of his countrymen.  Fighting him abuse for abuse are those who swear by another now dead who was responsible for even more murders in 1984.  However one good thing about these slanging matches is each side is spilling some truth about the other.  Once the election is done and dusted the ultra-timid Indian newspapers will again sink into 4 ½ years of docility vis-a-vis the powerful, of course all the time spewing thunder on softer targets.   Anyway after yesterday’s Akali salvo here is Captain  – somewhat not at home in his club these days because another fellow has been preferred to lead it in Punjab in the coming fray – returning fire with a rebuttal of sorts in today’s paper:
Newbie Rahul having “misspoken”  – he was dubbed a duffer for being a little honest  – Amrinder had to trot out some Congress names – out of these he chose four now deceased – all out in public since the very beginning, they were in “Who are the guilty?” released by PUCL-PUDR within days of the Nov 1984 atrocities. Also for party gossipers he let slip  that juicy bit about the out-of-state farm where Badal prudently weathered the storm of 1984.  Also he gives us some Jan Sanghi types – now Badal’s bedfellows – who were also doing some of the killings out on the streets of Delhi in 1984, possibly these too are also from the same pamphlet?  However,  curiously, Amrinder stops at those who were doing the hatchet work (literally).  He fails to mention the kingpin, Rajiv, who set all these deadly pawns in motion.  But then  – as Justice Nanavati told Kuldip Nayar – Rajiv is not worth mentioning because everyone already knew it was he who did it!  Also Captain has nothing to say of why, with all these characters known to be so engaged then on the streets, all remained in high positions – one was even a Cabinet minister for all 8 years – under this Mister Clean?   But there is a little snippet that may be new, the Captain informs us some mutineers spent up to 18 years in jail, so — since 1984 + 18 = 2002 – is he saying they are all finally out? If so that at least is good news.   For the rest it is Tweedledum and an equally horrible Tweedledee … Yes there is also AAP now to some extent whose anarchy the president of this republic criticised the other day.  They retorted it was in 1984 and 2002 that there was real anarchy, their street antics  — at least for the moment — are insignificant.  Totally right!  But we think however “guilty” we think a person is, he must be presumed innocent till a court convicts him.  But yes, if the charges are serious and his postion –  say a CM’s –is big enough he should immediately demit office till the entire investigation and court process is done (in India 30 years has not sufficed for one of the five that Captain has listed, the other four died in the interim).   Also it is vital that it is not the neta log only that should be reminded of their complicity in these murders: the blunt fact is Rajiv was popular because of the avenge killings of thousands in 1984, likewise Modi for the avenge killings of thousands – this time of another minority – in 2002: elections only decide popularity, not truth, not right, not what is just.
