At a time when the Nation is in a war like situation, there is no lack of cheerleaders for the enemy from our own soil

At a time when the nation has waged war against terrorism operating out of neighborhood, and every Indian including opposition parties have stood firmly behind the forces and government, there are some, who still find it difficult to think beyond politics.

Ever since Indian forces gave a befitting reply to Pakistan sponsored terrorists, by bombing the terror training camps in Balakot of Pakistan’s Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province, many have come out with shameful conspiracy theories. Some suggested that the strikes were unnecessary and politically motivated to gain mileage before the general elections. Others appeared to be echoing Pakistan’s self-contradictory and inconsistent versions about Indian strikes on its soil.

What these people, indirectly want to say is that the lives of more than 40 CRPF jawans did not really matter and that India should have just stayed back, doing absolutely nothing.

Thirumurugan Gandhi, a self styled human rights activist and advocate for the separation of Sikhs, Kashmiris and Tamils from India, came out openly to say that the airstrikes were just a eyewash stunt by the BJP government before 2019 general elections. He further suggested that instead of trying military actions, India should move to UN for getting sanctions imposed on Pakistan.

Similar views were expressed by Shankar, an anonymous person who runs a Tamil whistle-blower site Savukku. The whistle-blower in a series of tweets alleged that the strikes on Jaish-e-mohammed training camps were carried out by the present Indian government for political dividends.

However, leaving all the abovementioned gentlemen behind, professor Ashok Swain did not only coin similar conspiracy theories against the Prime Minister, but also suggested that the entire situation has been deliberately created by the Indian regime to divert focus from Rafale scandal.

Swain, went even a few steps to make a number of tweets, in which he appeared to be actually trying to scare the Indian people of Pakistani Army and its might. One can only wonder, how a person who still identifies as an Indian, could play cheerleader to an enemy nation, that too on a public platform.

While in Kerala, secretary of the state unit of Communist Party of India Marxist (CPI-M) Kerala, Kodiyeri Balakrishnan, waded in to a controversy by claiming that the strike was part of an attempt by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to trigger a war and derail the upcoming general elections, The Week reported.

The powerful apparatchik, who is known to be a close associate of Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan, accused the BJP led Union government of trying to polarise communities through war mongering. He claimed BJP was fearing a defeat in the upcoming general election.
