Redefining Patriotism

 

Earlier today, Digital India’s official twitter handle tweeted a poem calling for genocidal attacks on Kashmiris. The tweet was deleted later however the screenshots have been taken.

Digital India called it ‘Heights of Patriotism’

Here’s a translation:

Darwaazey pe kundi maaro Koyee Naa bach ke jaaney paaye army ko samjha do firing ghalti se Bhi rukh Na paaye

Lock the doors, nobody should come out alive, army should be made to understand, that don’t stop firing even out of mistake

Daba daba Jo feel Karey woh jaake bomb goli gatak le …Aur jis ko nahi rehna yaha woh Pakistan jaake bhains charaye..

Keep pumping the ammo, so that they can digest bombs and bullets, and those who don’t want to stay, can go to Pakistan to feed cows

bas aaj ki baat hai kal se to nayee shuruwaat hai. jee bhar ke thok lo bhaaiyo naa ghar waaley inke baap hai.

It’s just today, tomorrow is a new beginning, shoot them wholeheartedly, you’re the father (of Kashmiris)

yaha par apna raaj hai dar ne ki kya baat hai ye to bas shuruwaat yeh to bas shuruwaat hai….

It is our reign here, so don’t fear… this is just the beginning, just the beginning

arey abhi to goli shuru huwee hai… arey abhi to goli shuru huwee hai… baad mein naa kehna kuch bhi pehle hi de do warning vande maataram kehna hoga every in the morning.

The bullets have just started… the bullets have just started… don’t say this later, to give us warning, you will have to say vande mataram every morning

suuchna janhith mein jaari jis ko apni jaan pyaari chup chaap vo chauk pe aaye . chauk pe aake jan gan man gaaye nakhre vakhre yaha naa dikhaye

The announcement has been made in public interest, those who love their lives, should come to the square and sing the Jana Gana Mana (Indian anthem), don’t throw your tantrums here.

It’s sad enough that how people are posting such sick thoughts. But what is disgusting is the fact that Digital India which is the official handle of Prime Minister Modi’s  online initiative is promoting such kind of thinking. As of now no official apology has been issued.nationalism1

    Is this not encouraging violence? … the rulers talk of adivasis, Kashmiris, lower – castes as perpetrating violence… but these lines seem to be more violent and patriarchal than any other … they remind fascist rightist trend which even Gandhi might abhor and feel regretful …
