Ex army-man endorses a coup against the government of India if Modi is elected to power again

Guess when it comes to toeing a political line, the respect for the uniform you once donned gets thrown out of the window.

As the 2019 Lok Sabha elections reach its final phase of voting, everyone seems to be getting jittery and nervous. More than Modi supporters, the ones who hate him seem to be losing their mind and sanity over the prospect of him returning to power as the prime minister again.

Amidst all this, Lt General H S Panag, a retired army-man has suggested that a coup may be a good option if PM Modi returns to power.

He took to Twitter earlier today to share an article by the leftist propaganda website ‘The Wire’ which read ‘The Great Divider of India is Now Dividing its Armed Forces’

The article was an extension of the Hinduphobic article of TIME magazine.

Responding to his tweet, a Twitter user expressed his concern that if Prime Minister Modi returns to power on the 23rd, a revolution, perhaps a coup will be needed to remove him. Lt Gen Panag (R) endorsed his views.

However, he deleted his tweet after he was called out for his endorsement of a coup against a democratically elected government, just because he may not like the leader elected. Lt Gen Panag (R) then backtracked and said how he meant the term ‘revolution’ in ‘modern context’.

He even tried to justify his ‘coup’ statement by saying how he actually meant to use it as Bhagat Singh’s slogan, ‘Inqlab Zindabad’. Which is strange since Bhagat Singh led a revolution against forceful occupation and Lt Gen H S Panag (Retired) was suggesting a ‘revolution’ of a coup against a democratically elected government.

Unfortunately, this is not the first time this retired armyman has resorted to such shallow behaviour to score political points. In October 2017 after the Indian Air Force chopper crashed in the harsh terrain of Arunachal Pradesh, the mortal remains of the martyrs were airlifted. Lt Gen Panag, who once served as a Commanding Officer with the Indian Army shared misleading images of the coffins to insinuate that the government and the army deliberately disrespected the martyrs.
