Final Solution

Shri Manish Tewari said that the Home Minister of India Shri Rajnath Singh has been making rather curious statements to say the least. He said yesterday and it has been reported in the newspapers today that “We have come up with a permanent solution to solve Kashmir. The initiative has begun.” We would like to stress the word ‘permanent solution’. Would the Home Minister of India care to explain to the people of this country what are the contours and calculations of the phraseology ‘permanent solution’ because anybody who has a nodding acquaintance with history understands that the phraseology ‘permanent solution’, ‘final solution’, have had some extremely disturbing implications and history has been witness to the consequences of ‘permanent solution’/ final solution in action.

 

Now the statement comes at a point in time when the PDP-BJP alliance has been playing Tweedlum and Tweedlie on an extremely sensitive issue i.e. the security situation in the Kashmir Valley. The Chief Minister of Jammu & Kashmir Ms. Mehbooba Mufti has been giving interview after interview and rather elaborate and exhaustive interviews where she has been passionately advocating that the Government and she means the Central Government needs to engage with both the Hurriyat and with Pakistan. She goes on to say that both these engagements are part of the ‘Agenda of Alliance’ between the PDP and the BJP.

 

If you rewind back over the past one year, the Prime Minister and his Home Minister have been using different kinds of phraseology, words which mean nothing at all. Last year, it was ’Insaaniyat’, ‘Kashmiriyat’ and ‘Jamhooriyat’. This year it is ’permanent solution’. God alone knows what it would be tomorrow? So, therefore, it is high time that this Government wakes up. As the security situation in Jammu & Kashmir continues to deteriorate very rapidly, they need to open their eyes and they need to realize the extreme damage which both their ideologically incompatible alliance as well as their continued dithering is doing to the National security of India.
