Devil’s advocate Tuesday, Jul 3 2007
The interview of A P Bardhan of the Communist Party of India, one of those parties that support the Nomination of Prathiba Patil by Congress to the post of the President of India.
Look at the silly arguments put forth by Bardhan in support of Prathibha Patil.
To hell with these politicians. Hats off to great interviewers like Karan Thapar !
This is a three part video. Click on the links 2 and 3 below the video after part 1 is over…
See how shamelessly these politicians say, “they did it, so whats wrong if we did it”
There is a popular saying about India
“China is what it is today because of its politicians, where as India is what it is today in spite of its politicians” !
The above interview proves it!
Below is another video link, an advertisement comes first and then the interview, this time Karan Thapar interviewing Arun Shourie, the journalist who brought into light the background of Prathiba Patil.
You missed it Karan!!!!! Monday, Jan 9 2006
Those who have seen both the parts of pakisan’s president Musharraf’s interview by Karan Thapar on CNN IBN (Part I yday and part II today), it is an undeniable fact that Karan really played the part of Devil’s Advocate very well..
Musharraf was tempted to make statements.. trapped in his own statements.. made to agree on screen that pakistan supported terrorism against India earlier.. can control it today.. alongside his usual statements of ‘there are no terror camps in pakistan’, so on and so forth…
What is interesting to note in this was also musharraf’s allegations on India about sponsoring terrorism in Baluchistan.. but how?? Did his military kill terrorists sponsored by India while crossing over into Pak?? What is the evidence he has?? Were any Indians caught in Baluchistan?? Where did the arms come from?? NO ANSWER..
and he thinks that he is dropping bombshells..
offers India to give self governance to kashmiris?
What is that Sir? Karan asks..
He replies ‘something between autonomy and independence…’
‘OK what is that something Sir??’
‘Well, It needs to be worked out??’
‘What about other side of LOC sir’
‘Well, we can have it there too’ (as if he is doing a favor)
And another bombshell..
this time musharaff says
‘Let Indian army move out of srinagar, kupwara and baramulla to continue the peace process’
Well, Why only these 3 towns??? Any kashmir expert knows very well that these are the three worst terrorism affected areas in Kashmir.. Will any government with even the slightest sense of responsibility agree to this foolish proposal??
Musharraf says, “I will ensure that there is no terrorism in these places once Indian military moves out”
“How can you ensure sir?? So it means you have good control on it”
“Well, I cant assure that not even a single bullet will be fired. But I will do my best to ensure that there is no terrorism after Indian forces withdraw
THE POINT TO NOTE HERE IS THAT THEN WHY DOESNT HE DO THAT ‘MY BEST’ NOW SO THAT MILITANCY ENDS IN THESE PLACES SOON UPON WHICH INDIA WILL DEFINITELY WITHDRAW TROOPS. WHY THE HELL DOES HE WANTS TO WAIT TILL INDIAN FORCES LEAVE TO END TERRORISM IN THESE TOWNS??
I Wish Karan would have asked this question right on spot to Musharraf. But the conversation unfortunately ended up somewhere else… Any how, now we are more convinced than ever.. about the synonyms of pakistani military and militants.. It was the same Musharraf who said that the invaders were Mujahiddeens during Kargil war when in reality they were Northern Light Infantry Division soldiers of Pakistani army..
YOUNG INDIAN FACTThe Kumbh Mela festival, held every 12 years in the city of Allahabad, attracts 25 million people (more than the population of 185 of the 227 countries in the world).
YOUNG INDIAN QUOTE“India was the motherland of our race and Sanskrit the mother of Europe’s languages. India was the mother of our philosophy, of much of our mathematics, of the ideals embodied in Christianity… of self-government and democracy. In many ways, Mother India is the mother of us all.”- Will Durant, American Historian
