Headline February 22, 2018/ '' 'REVENGE REMORSE REVERENCE' ''


MAJOR MOHAMMED ARSHAD - Hashmi Querishi, from the world famed Frontier Force Rifles, was an elder brother of a gifted and ordained. Highest Class.

Tall and well built and handsome, resembling the great Indian actor Dilip Kumar, Arshad was a naturally brave army officer, just as he was a sterlingly composed, battlefield commander. Nothing  could ruffle, Arshad.

So loved and admired by his military colleagues, that they went on to nick-name him ''The Chief ''. Somehow, they knew, that he would make it to the top slot. In short, - Major Arshad, was 'Hero's Hero'.

He now resides, in his heavenly abodes, and in worldly terms, in an unmarked, unfrequented and unvisited grave in Sylhet, Bangladesh. His lineage, his family, all torn asunder to bare shreds.

Mother India, I am sure, would have their own Great Arshads and their own stories to suffer, maybe in remorse, but for sure, in total reverence.

''The death of more than  40  Central Reserve Police Force [CRPF] jawans in the single deadliest attack on security forces in 30 years of militancy in Kashmir is not only a national but a human tragedy.

The shock it has given to the country is understandable. What is not understandable, nor forgivable, is Prime Minister Narendra Modi's refusal to ask the country to stay calm, to ask state governments to prevent revenge attacks on Kashmiris, and to warn the cohorts of his own party against avoid inflaming communal passion.

Instead he has immediately accused Pakistan of masterminding the attack, launched an international campaign to isolate it and virtually committed the Indian security forces to retaliatory attack on Pakistan at a time and place of their choosing.''

Prime Minster Narendra Modi, it seems has found the ''trigger'' he needed before 2019 elections.

The ''above passage'' is from this great writer and author Shanker Jha, a Delhi-based writer.

*Both India and Pakistan, reason high alert and set preparations and go preparing for an all out war*.

IN HIS MAIDEN SPEECH to parliament after he was elected president of South Africa, Nelsen Mandela [1918-2013], vehemently pronounced that he did not harbour hatred and hostility against anyone and had left such sentiments behind.

He added that a sense of revenge would be disastrous for the country as it would turn every street of South Africa into a battleground.

Nelson Mandela learnt from his 27 years-long imprisonment what other individuals seldom learn  from both experience and, and bookish knowledge   

Through Mandela's policy against revenge and hatred, the country witnesses a peaceful transformation. South Africa's black population, which had been deprived of fundamental rights during the apartheid, gained dignity and honour, and became maters of their own land.

After the First World War, when the treat of Versailles was signed, the victorious power assembled to decide the terms against Germany.

Llyod George [1863-1946], the then British Prime Minister was in favour of imposing strict terms on Germany because he wanted to gain popularity among British voters by coming across as a hardliner and a defender of the British empire.

Meanwhile, the then French Prime Minister George Clemenceau [1841-1929], whose country suffered heavily after the German invasion, insisted on weakening his rivals to such an extent that they would be unable to carry out any military attacks in the future.

Under the proposed terms of the treaty, Germany was declared guilty of war and heavy reparations were imposed on the country.

Alsace, Germany's individual territory, was granted to France in order to deprive the country of its resources. In addition, an attempt was made to convert Germany into an agricultural country rather than an industrial one.

German delegates were asked to sign the treaty without reading its terms and were given no alternative in the matter.

As a result, Germany had to pay heavy reparations to the Allied Powers. It had no financial resources as its  industrial production was seized. in order to come up with a suitable solution for the financial crisis, Germany started printing paper money, which created inflation and instability in people's daily lives.

The prices of  commodities fluctuated so rapidly that people struggled to mange their daily expenses and lives.
