Those who were trying to convert the Shaheed Maqbool Bhat’s philosophy of resistance into Gandhism have failed, the Kashmiri youth rejected the latter long ago. No matter how much do they paint this philosophy with religion, those so-called religious men, who are justifying and supporting this Philosophy of Ghandism, have been exposed in this Land of Jihad. In Sha Allah, in this Land of Chinar, which has absorbed the blessed blood of more than one lac Martyrs, there can no longer be a betrayal to this sacred blood.
Even if the falsehood covers itself with Kiswah, the Truth will take it out from there as well. Those who are disrespecting Jihad and Islam in the name of religion will be humiliated themselves. Falsehood and hypocrisy do not last long, they die in the end. Treachery and betrayal to the blood of the Martyrs could not be tolerated for long. Their days are limited. During the last 20 years, a new generation has been born in Kashmir Valley that is not afraid of the enemy. It will stand in front of Indian imperialism in such a manner that there won’t remain even a single trace of the pro-India rulers of JK and those who betrayed and sold the blood of the Martyrs.
Gandhism is a lie and deception. Gandhi lived with people like G.D. Birla and was staying in Birla House. Instead of changing the condition of the people from the lower castes, he gave them the name Harijan and wanted them to spend their entire lives as oppressed and helpless people.
Fatima Mansoor quotes Gandhi in her book “The Young India in the Process of Independence” on page 147: “If an open warfare were a possibility, I may concede that we may tread the path of violence other countries have and at best evolve the qualities that the bravery on the battlefield brings forth.”
Gandhi wrote in his newspaper “Harijan” on 27th October, 1946, “When the need arises not only men but also woman will have the resort to violence and meet force with force.”
At another instance, Gandhi writes, “Where there is only one choice between cowardice and violence, I would advise violence.”
So, those who are trying to push the resistance movement of Kashmir towards Gandhism should study history first. Instead of building castles in the air and misguiding the youths of Nation/Millat, they must open an art gallery somewhere in Delhi or Islamabad where they can entertain themselves and other romantics like them.
In order to paralyze the Kashmiri movement ideologically, the Government of India introduced Gandhism in Kashmir. As far as these people who carry the flag of independent Kashmir are concerned, America, Europe, and even Pakistan also provides them with good livelihoods, luxuries of life, name, and fame. In turn, these people are crippling the freedom movement by turning Shaheed Maqbool Bhat’s way into Ghandism which is putting the youth’s thoughts and energies on a wrong side. Gandhi’s personality and this Gandhism which is being imposed upon the oppressed Kashmiris is a big conspiracy to bury the sentiments, feelings and the thought and ideology of Kashmiris on which their struggle is based. So, the expulsion of this new Gandhi and Gandhism is the most important demand of this movement. This should be done as soon as possible so that we can head towards the destination.
It should be noted that Shaheed Maqbool Bhat did not have any connection with Gandhism. Those who call themselves as an “extension” of Shaheed Maqbool Bhat cannot preach Gandhism. Extensions of Shaheed Bhat Sahib are only those children and youngsters who have the desire of Martyrdom and sacrifice in their hearts. Personal losses are of no importance when, as a result of them, such a nation comes into existence which is conscious, trained, cognizant and is well aware of the profit and loss of Millat and which can foresee the results properly.
Such a militancy whose source of guidance and constitution is the Quran, Sunnah of Prophet (PBUH) and Khulafa-e-Rashideen is the only solution to end our sufferings, humiliation, and slavery. Religious scholars, intellectuals, talented youths, and students etc. everyone should promote Jihad. No section of people in Kashmir is safe. All of us are caged. Our basic rights have been snatched. We all should respect Jihad according to our capacity, power, time, wealth, education and talent. In return, Jihad will grant us honor and safety.
