WikiLeaks may put India in big trouble

Karachi

January 28, 2011

Where Wikileaks served as a blessing in disguise for the western nations as it diverted the world’s attention from their humiliating defeat in Iraq, Afghanistan and other theatres, it also covered their war crimes and human right violations in these countries.
They also proved to be a bombshell for other countries, including India, as it exposed Washington’s view and analysis towards them as well as it compromised desires and ambitions of various leaders on different debatable issues. Interestingly, the so called ‘War on Terror’ has its own rules which have been authenticated by the United Nations Security Council resolutions but can we apply these on revelations through Wikileaks? The issue is to ascertain if these rules are same for all countries, organisations, groups and individuals.
Although WikiLeaks are nothing but a conspiracy of western intelligence agencies against their enemies and adversaries yet for the sake of discussion, let’s put India on the litmus test to check the authentication of the Wikileaks. Last month, the Samajwadi Party legislator Abu Asim Azmi brought into the notice of the Maharashtra Legislative Assembly during its session that according to the Wikileaks disclosure, the Hindu militant organization Rashtriya Sevak Sangh (RSS) was a thousand times more dangerous than the Al-Qaeda. In the same regard, Azmi told the Assembly “It has been exposed in the Wikileaks as to how a thousand times more dangerous is the RSS than the Al Qaeda. Therefore, I demand that strong and stern action must be taken against the RSS.” Although, the remark and demand by Azmi drew strong protests from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Shiv Sena (SS) and Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) legislators and others but what he highlighted was a leak from the respectable offices of India’s most trusted friend and long time partner the United States of America (USA). Regardless of the fact that already New Delhi has many times sacrificed its

sovereignty to please this beloved friend, the recent leaks have exposed the US diplomats’ long term strategy against the Hindus, which interestingly has appeared in black and white this time. One wonders if still any Indian has doubts in his mind about the US long term strategy in this region and conspiracy behind the US-Indo partnership.
If we recall, on September 24, 2001, President George W. Bush stated, “We will direct every resource at our command to win the war against terrorists, every means of diplomacy, every tool of intelligence, every instrument of law enforcement, every financial influence. We will starve the terrorists of funding.” To achieve this objective, US Congress worked closely with the Department of the Treasury, along with the Department of Justice and took solids action against financial intermediaries and facilitators who were suspected to infuse terrorist organisations with money, material and support and they were held accountable along with those who perpetrate terrorist acts. It is pertinent to mention here that the campaign was mainly against the Muslims, especially those doubted to have links with religious outfits including Al Qaida and Taliban.
If we consider the Wikileaks as authentic and Hindu organization Rashtriya Sevak Sangh is a thousand times more dangerous than the Al-Qaeda, now it is time to take action. It would be a test for Washington and New Delhi that whether they would take action against RSS and all those who are directly and indirectly liked with the assistance to this organization. Confirmed intelligence input says that Shiv Sena working President Uddhav Thackeray had been receiving money from two Mumbai-based industrial houses namely Reliance and Tata Group of Companies.
This information is not hearsay as it is based on the intercepted phone recordings between Tata Group spokeswoman Shalani and Public Relations Corporate chief Nira Radia. We have a precedent that US, UK, India and other countries were in the forefront to ban all organizations, groups and individuals suspected to have anytime helped organizations suspected to be involved in terrorism like Al Qaida, Taliban, Lashkar-e-Tayyiaba, Al Khidmat Trust and many other religious, political and charitable organizations as well as freeze their bank accounts and assets. Now let’s see, what will be done about the Indian religious terrorist organisations and their financers including Reliance and Tata Group of companies.
