New Delhi: A new group, JNU for Nationalism, has been floated on the campus of the Jawaharlal Nehru University, led by the RSS’s student wing Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP). Yesterday it organised a talk “Nationalism: straight from the battlefield” at the School of International Studies.

The distinguished speakers at the event included Lieutenant General Niranjan Singh Malik and Brigadier Raj Bahadur Sharma.

Addressing the audience, Brig Sharma stated that the event organised at JNU on 9 February gave them “immense pain and served to discourage our soldiers”.

He targeted Pakistan saying,

“Pakistan knows that it can’t defeat us on the battlefield, therefore they are waging a proxy war and trying to benefit from our internal weaknesses to disturb our internal security. We are moving forward in every area — cyber, warship, economy etc — and that is what keeps our neighbour unhappy, more so because we became independent at the same time. And that’s why we need to remain alert. He also played the SIYACHIN SONG showing the high peaks and battlefields of Siachin and the difficulties the soldiers face there for keeping our country’s ‘gate’ safe from enemies.”

Lt Gen Malik talked about the two great mistakes India had committed. The first was ” to recognize Tibet as the part of China”. Tibet was historically our neighbour and China was nowhere far from us but that mistake drew China closer and posed it as our great neighbouring enemy.

The other mistake was “going to UNO” on J&K. The treaty signed between Hari Singh and Nehru on Jammu & Kashmir, made it an integral part of India since the Treaty was same as those signed with Hyderabad, Junagadh and other States. Neither did it mention any “plebiscite in future”. So there was no point going to the UN, but India complained to the international body and the matter was deliberately made complicated by the UN authorities.

Talking about China and its “String of Pearls”, Lt Gen Malik said that in response to China’s “string of pearls”, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has shown great statesmanship, making his own strategic allies such as Japan, Malaysia, Australia etc. He went on to say that “India is strong enough to tackle China’s challenge. He pointed to another “mistake” after the 1971 war:

“India let off 93,000 captured Pakistani soldiers without securing anything in return.”

The distinguished soldiers concluded by saying, “We, the soldiers, protect the country without caring for our lives.”
