Advani resigns as BJP chief and refused to take back his comment about the Founder of Pakistan -DAWN - Top Stories; June 8, 2005


Advani resigns as BJP chief -DAWN - Top Stories; June 8, 2005: "Indian opposition leader L.K. Advani resigned as the head of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Tuesday after he was criticized by his former Hindu extremist supporters for describing Quaid-i-Azam as a secular leader of Pakistan. ... day back from Pakistan. The BJP appeared divided after the attack launched against Mr Advani by sections of the Hindu revivalist Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) and the extremist fringe of the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP). It put forth no arguments to fend off the criticism, with the Hindu Jagran Manch even putting up posters asking “Jinnah sympathiser Advani” to go back to Pakistan."

Bravo Mr. Advani! It takes a lot to speak the truth and standby it. This is the best an Indian leader can do to reconcile differences among Pakistan and India. Both countries must acknowledge the roles played by their founders in Independence. They should act like brothers and neighbors; consider each other as brothers living independently in their homes next door. Gone are the days of joint family system. This would be the only way to overcome the bitterness of the past and live-in and enjoy ones freedom.

Congress claims to be more liberal but is letting an opportunity to slip from its hands to join the opposition in making peace with Pakistan. The Oposition in India must stand up and give ovation to its leader to claim the role in bringing the hearts and minds in two countries together. It is the respect that we give to each other and to the people of Kashmir that will help attain the peace in South Asia. India and Pakistan, please don't let this opportunity slide down the slippery slopes of hatred and bigotry. Acknowledge each others role in Independence with respect; issue statement of remorse on communal and ethnic violence that ensued after independence in both countries; solve the issue of Kashmir with the help of Kashmiris and live peacefully as decent neighbors.

I wish the two courtiers live in peace with each other solve the issue of Kashmir according the wishes of Kashmiris alone. Kashmiris are the one who have suffered and they are the one who deserve set the terms of their happiness. If we accuse UN of its failure then remember it is us we are letting it down. If we aspire for Security Council seats then we must abide by United Nation’s historical resolutions as well.
