Pulwama terror attack: Congress and its President, Rahul Gandhi’s good-cop-bad-cop routine is not fooling anyone

One can only hope that the Indian electorate has matured and learnt to discern these political tactics that exploit the emotions of the citizens.

Kashmir witnessed one of the most horrific and dastardly terror attacks yesterday. The death toll in the horrific terrorist attack sponsored by the terrorist state of Pakistan has reached 44 and the entire nation is thirsting for revenge. The anger and the demands for punitive action to be taken against Pakistan has been louder than ever, as India bids goodbye to its braves.

Even as the Left ecosystem blamed India and some even celebrated the attack, Rahul Gandhi, the Congress president, displayed remarkable and surprising maturity in the face of such adversity.

Rahul Gandhi said that this is a time of mourning, sadness and respect and that Congress is fully supporting the Government of India and our security forces. He added, “we are not going to get into any other conversation apart from this”.

After Rahul Gandhi’s reactions on the Surgical Strikes, Congress asking for proof of the strikes by the Indian Army and Rahul Gandhi branding ‘Bharat tere tukde honge’ slogans as freedom of speech, this statement by the Congress President was certainly a breath of fresh air. Perhaps, finally, Rahul Gandhi had “come of age”. But has he?

No matter how much Rahul tries to feign respect for the armed forces, more often than not, his true self provides a glimpse into his nonchalance.

For starters, while paying respects to the martyrs, Rahul Gandhi was seen fidgeting with his mobile phone.

Then, there are his party members who run amock making outlandish and offensive statements at this hour of grief.

Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu, who often expresses his love towards the terrorist state of Pakistan has once again issued a shocking clean chit to Pakistan by claiming that ‘Terrorism has no country’ and indicated that Pakistan has no role in the Pulwama terrorist attack.

While condemning the heinous terrorist attack on the CRPF soldiers, Navjot Singh Sidhu said that terrorism has no country, giving a clean chit to Pakistan despite Jaish-e-Mohammed, a terrorist group backed by the Pakistani establishment has taken the responsibility for the attack on CRPF soldiers at Pulwama.

On the other hand, Congress trolls who Rahul Gandhi met personally have been floating theories about how India itself maybe responsible for the Pulwama attack. Insinuating that Prime Minister Narendra Modi ‘let the attack happen’.

At the same time, Divya Spandana, Rahul Gandhi’s close aide and Congress’ IT Cell Head was found retweeting tweets that whitewashed the terrorist who carried out the Pulwama terror attack.

Divya Spandana endorses tweet whitewashing Pulwama terrorist

Firstly, there is no corroborative evidence to what the terrorist’s father is saying. It is obvious that the father would blame the security forces and the Indian Army for the fate of his son, but the fact remains that Islamic radicalisation is high in Kashmir. For Divya Spandana to endorse a tweet that blames the Army for a terrorist being radicalised and then murdering 44 CRPF jawans in cold blood betrays the ‘mature’ stance that Rahul Gandhi is pretending to take.

In fact, the line taken by Divya Spandana is no different from what radical Islamists take while trying to shield their terrorists.

Yet, after that one mandatory statement by Rahul Gandhi, we have seen no condemnation of this line of argument taken by his party functionaries and supporters.

One would not be off the mark to assume that Congress is trying to play good-cop-bad-cop. While Rahul Gandhi postures with a ‘mature’ line post the Pulwama attack, his party functionaries have been given a free hand to pander to the “secular” and leftist elements who would blame the Indian Army for Kashmiri terrorists.

Politically, Rahul Gandhi’s strategy makes sense since he seems to be monkey-balancing between opposing ideologies. While his support to the central government may please concerned citizens and those millions who stand with the Indian Army, statements by his party functionaries and supporters pander to the Islamists and Leftists who have historically been against the Indian Army and have supported Pakistan. However, one can only hope that the Indian electorate has matured and learnt to discern these political tactics that exploit the emotions of the citizens.
