The Government’s choice to proclaim August 14 as “Segment Horrors Remembrance Day” drew sharp analysis from the Congress and other Opposition parties. Notwithstanding the Bahujan Samaj Party which upheld the move and the Samajwadi Party which declined to remark, the Opposition’s abstain was that Prime Minister Narendra Modi was playing “troublesome governmental issues” over the penance and injury of individuals destroyed by Partition.
“The disruptive guile of the Prime Minister stands uncovered,” said Congress boss representative Randeep Surjewala in an explanation. “When there are no races, PM displays his affection for Pakistan and compliments the adjoining country on March 22, the day Muslim League passed the ‘Parcel Resolution’ in 1940, and salutes it on each August 14. In any case, when decisions are close, he begins diversionary governmental issues at home.”
Surjewala likewise shared the PM’s celebratory letters to Pakistan on August 14 and tweets on March 22. “It appears arrangements are going full bore to rehash the ‘Shamshan-Kabristan’ show taking into account the approaching UP decisions,” he said.
Patriot Congress Party pioneer Majeed Memon said it was smarter to “fail to remember August 14” than to recollect “the huge loss of lives, disharmony and scorn which were the aftermath of Partition.” He added: “Assuming the PM needs individuals to recall that we need to live in harmony and congruity, then, at that point he should advise his BJP chiefs to avoid spreading toxin towards the minority local area.”
The Trinamool Congress, as well, hammered the move. “Who are individuals liable for Partition? The Muslim League, the Hindu Mahasabha and the RSS were all similarly capable… By proclaiming Partition Horrors Remembrance Day, the PM can’t discount the ugliest human misfortune that had influenced individuals of Punjab and Bengal in 1946-47,” TMC’s Sukhendu Sekhar Ray revealed to The Indian Express.”Neither the BJP nor the Congress would need genuine history to be educated to youthful Indians since, supposing that they realized what really happened neither would get support.”
Another key Opposition party DMK communicated its analysis. “Autonomous India is 75 years of age yet you are attempting to revive the contempt between the networks. India was never one country, there were many august states and Mahatma Gandhi joined them to battle for opportunity,” party representative TKS Elangovan, revealed to The Indian Express.
“It could be his (Pm’s) see. It can’t be the country’s view. Many individuals won’t concur with it. It was a miserable day. However, was there any other option? It’s been 75 years. What are we honoring?” requested BJD MP and pioneer from the party in Lok Sabha Bhratruhari Mahtab.
Said CPM’s Politburo part Mohammed Salim: “The individuals who really took an interest in the opportunity battle have chosen to zero in on our brilliant past, though the individuals who never partook (in the development), however rather spread shared scorn and uproars, are presently requiring a Partition Horrors Day? All things considered, we ought to be looking forward and constructing a comprehensive, popularity based, mainstream India.
The Rashtriya Janata Dal blamed the PM for “twofold guidelines”. “I might want to demand the Prime Minister that there is no requirement for a Partition Horrors (Day)… The repulsions saw during the Covid pandemic, focus on that. No PM has at any point composed letters (to Pakistan) on Pakistan’s Independence day, presently a ton of letters are being composed – this is a twofold norm,” said party representative and Rajya Sabha MP Manoj Jha.
While a Samajwadi Party representative declined to remark, the Bahujan Samaj Party upheld the move. “We concur with the declaration made by the Prime Minister and the Home Ministry. The Partition of our nation was a snapshot of agony and distress. A large number of individuals were uprooted,” party MP Malook Nagar said.
“Accordingly, we ought to recollect fourteenth August in that manner… The Central government just as state governments, association pastors and state clergymen, previous priests, MPs and MLAs ought to set up an environment that a similar reasoning may never emerge again.”
