I Support Gurmehar Kaur, we can not just humiliate the brave father and his fearless daughter.
I, as an Indian, and human does not feel there is anything wrong in what Gurmehar said. She is just 20 years of age and she was barely 2 years when her father sacrificed his life for the country. It does not matter whether he died at Kargil or at any other place. All that matters is, he died fighting for the country. It also does not matter whether she supports the ideology of AAP or any other political party as she is adult and has right to vote and everyone votes according to their political preferences. It also does not matter whether she is studying in the perennially politically charged university of Delhi. All that matters is whether her statement is in the support of war or peace.
She is being threatened, bullied, trolled, and ridiculed for her statement. The missiles of criticism are being showered on her by politicians, cricketer, Bollywood star and the ruling party members. Are these haters more matured than her with regard to their stand on the Pakistan? If yes, than please clarify the following.
When Jahawarlal Nehru, assumed the Prime Minstership of Independent India, he just did not know, what exact foreign policy he should adopt towards Pakistan, which rose up from undivided India. You call someone enemy who is not part of your race and religion. With half of the relatives in Pakistan and other half in India, both the countries have been historically confused with one another in their international relations . The confusion runs high in Pakistan. The confusion also ran high in successive Indian governments. The Indian foreign policy as enshrined in the Constitution is that of the peaceful coexistence but with regard to dealing with Pakistan, there has been no clarity. The politicians, industrialists, media fraternity, singers, actors, producers, script writers and citizens, from both the countries, love and hate each other. Even in the war of 1965 , there was no closure of diplomatic channels and people from both the countries were visiting each other. Even the Indian courts, were puzzled to see the it.
Gurmeher father died in fighting the terrorists sponsored by Pakistan. She is bound to get confused as the same terrorists were exchanged in lieu of hostages at Kandhar by then Government. Despite the bus journey and opening of the boarder, the Kargil incursion happened.
Whether it is Gurmeher, Virendra Sehbag or the ABSU or even those radical groups in university, all are victims of the confusion. They just do not know what exactly Pakistan is to India and vice versa. But Gurmeher’s father was not confused, he got killed. The army men just kill or get killed. They have no confusion. They are clear in their objectives and mind.
My sympathy is completely with Gurmeher and all those who threatened her and spoke derogatory about her , must apologise. If they cannot, than they should clear the above confusion whether Pakistan is friend or enemy?. If Pakistan is friend, than follow what Gurmeher says and if not, than follow what Gurmeher’s martyred fathers did. You can not just humiliate the brave father and his fearless daughter.
