I have talked about the how Mufti Mohammed Sayyed – the ex-Chief Minister of J&K and head of the ruling PDP and once ex-Home Minister of India - is one of them – a terrorist in politicians clothes, his role in Hindu genocide of 1985, his hand in glove role with the terrorists as Home minister of India, his anti-Pandit mind-set… but this piece penned by Brij Dass is just awesome. Full credits to the author – and I hope he would pardon me for reproducing it here without his prior permission.
‘M’ for Mischievous
Author – Brij Dass
’Bahach’ is a big boat. Four-fifth of the boat is covered with a thatched or shingle roof. Its front and a little of the rare portion are open. Bahach serves partly as the floating house to its inmates and partly to carry goods from one place to the other. The wife of the boatman sits at the rare portion holding the oar to give direction to the floating Bahach. The boatman on the open front pulls it.
A Bahach in the midst of
A widow in Ashmuj, a militant infested village in Kulgam Tehsil was teaching English alphabet to her orphan grand son. Both her husband and her son had died while fighting for their cause.
Thus the grand mother started: "A for Abdullah; B for Bakshi...M for Mischievous...the young scholar was surprised and instead of repeating M for Mischievous, he said M for Mufti. The mother insisted M for mischievous. The boy said: "If A for Abdhullah and B for Bakshi stand for names why M should stand for an adjective. The grand mother yielded and said: "Both mean the same. Let you read M for Mischievous Mufti". A little later, the boy asked his grand mother: "How do both mean the same?"
Thus explains the Grandee:
"People have little memory. In January 1990 the double M was the Home Minister of India. He brought out the Indian Army from their barracks to civil areas. He brought CRP Force and BSF to the valley. He caused massacre of people at Maisuma Bazar and many other places. During his Home Ministry many of the mourners participating in the funeral procession of Moulavi Farooq were shot dead. He manipulated kidnapping of his daughter Dr.Rubaya Syed. He promulgated the Army Special Powers law enacted. Most of the times he was sent as an MLA to the Assembly by
Today the author of all the atrocities is talking of healing touch to the wounds caused by him. He is asking for the withdrawal of the armed forces which were installed by him. Today he talks for the withdrawal of the Army Special Powers Act enacted by him in 1990. He used to rig the elections and today he asks for fair elections of 2002. I wonder how he is spared by those who suffered injuries of different intensity because of him. It is nothing short of Double M's cheth (Wind storm). Let people forget the historical facts, but I remember my deep wounds are because of the double M". Go ahead and read " M for Mischievous Mufti"..M for Manipulator.
While teaching, the Granny resumed the swing to her body and said: "Go ahead and read G for Geelani; G for Goat; M for Mischievous Mufti..M for Manipulator". The son said: "Why Geelani is associated with Goat?" "This is one of the teaching methods" said the Granny. One event is remembered by associating it to the other. He draws pension as an ex-MLA. He could not get enough strength in the Assembly to be the Chief Minister of the State. And he knows that he will never get absolute majority to be the State Head. For face saving he boycotts elections. Out of vengeance he has taken a vow to rule all the grave yards in the State. He gets lot of pleasure and satisfaction in ruling the dead and is contented that if not live he could be the emperor of the dead. A Persion quotation is 'In case of no worry keep a goat to purchase worries'. Thus G for goat and to remember it associate it with G for Geelani. Both cause worries.
