PM Modi’s SIT secures death penalty for 1984 rioter: Lessons to be learned

A crime committed in 1984. Numerous governments and Prime Ministers in between. Case closed decades ago and the criminal let free to go. It took Narendra Modi to secure a little bit of justice for the 1984 genocide.

This is what it takes.

The Delhi Police had closed the case in 1994. The SIT constituted by the Modi government reopened the matter in 2015. And now we have a conviction.

A crime committed in 1984. Numerous governments and Prime Ministers in between. Case closed decades ago and the criminal let free to go. It took Narendra Modi to secure a little bit of justice for the 1984 genocide.

But we all know that this convict is small fry. The big butchers of 1984 are roaming free.

So, it’s really bittersweet and there’s not that much to celebrate.

What is important is that there are BIG lessons to be learned here.

The first big lesson is that this is what protection from the liberal ecosystem looks like. Even a foot soldier of the 1984 riots, held tight in the loving embrace of Indian ‘liberalism’ escapes punishment for 34 long years.

Why?

Was this person some kind of billionaire that he could buy up the system?

Probably not. But the fact remains that this rioter rendered a “service” to the ecosystem. A service that the ecosystem decided they needed at the time in 1984.

And the ecosystem remembers his “service” and rewards his actions with 34 years of protection.

The ecosystem will do anything for its own. Signing up with Indian liberalism is an investment that pays off for a lifetime. Several lifetimes actually. It is a guarantee of immunity from the law, a guaranteed livelihood, and a guaranteed retirement plan. And the guarantees are just as valid for your children and their children after them.

If this is what the ecosystem will do for a complete nobody, imagine what the ecosystem would be willing to do for those celebrity journalists, media heads and intellectuals we hate so much.

Is it any mystery therefore that these people choose to join the ecosystem in droves? The ecosystem has been making careers for 70 years. It is the most reliable reward system ever in the Republic of India.

The second big ecosystem is for those who are impatient to see Modi do “big” things.

I am afraid such folks have heavily underestimated the power and resolve of the liberal ecosystem.

So deep and so entrenched is their power that it took 3 years to get one small fry a death sentence for his role in the 1984 riots. Think about it. Surely the same incriminating evidence that was found against him today already existed in 1994 when the case was closed. Chances are that the evidence was actually of better quality: the matter would have been fresher in the minds of the witnesses, some crucial people might have passed away in between 1994 and now and important documents could have been lost.

So why couldn’t this man be convicted earlier? Because the ecosystem has so many deep assets in so many places. Even after the SIT was constituted in 2015, it took 3 years to get a conviction! Imagine that.

Now imagine what Narendra Modi is up against. Imagine the collective power of all the vested interests that are aligned against him. These are the special interests that have ruled India with an iron grip for 70 years. They have had the time and resources to sink their fangs into every neck and to lay their eggs in every nest.

And, of course, these interests had a contingency plan to live through five years of power drought like they are facing now. Of course, they stocked up well with resources for such a possibility.

If we run out of patience before the ecosystem runs out of provisions, they will win.
