" There is one thing stronger than all the armies in the world, and that is an idea whose time has come "---Victor Hugo.
The idea of reunification of India, Pakistan and Bangladesh under a secular, modern minded government which works for the people's welfare to raise the standard of living of our people, is an idea whose time has come ( see my article ' The Truth about Pakistan ' and B.N. Pande's speech ' History in the Service of Imperialism ' online ).
Ever since I posted the idea of an Indian Reunification Association on facebook I have literally been deluged with telephone calls, emails and fb messages not only from India but also from abroad supporting the idea, and asking what they should do to make it a reality.
For too long have we been befooled by Britishers and other Westerners that Hindus and Muslims are natural enemies and are two separate nations ( the bogus two nation theory )
For too long has blood flown between us due to the wickednness of supporters of this theory who have their own vested interest of divide and rule.
For too long has communalism and persecution of minorities been tolerated in this sub continent.
For too long has this artificial Partition lasted, whose whole aim was to prevent India ( in which I include Pakistan and Bangladesh ) from emerging as a modern industrial giant ( for which it has all the potential ), like China, by making us fight each other, thus keeping us weak and backward and ensuring super profits to foreign arms manufacturers whose weapons we have to purchase at the huge cost of billions of dollars annually, money which could have been spent on the welfare of our own
I have received telephone calls from people in U.K. USA and even countries like Brazil supporting the idea ( the Brazilian was not even from our sub continent, which shows that the idea has even international support ),
Many people told me that they have friends in Pakistan with whom they have spoken, and who support the idea, but are afraid of saying it openly for fear of persecution by the Pakistani security agencies.
This is indeed a genuine problem for Pakistanis, since the idea of reunification goes against the very concept of Pakistan, and they will be branded as anti-national by many and persecuted if they support it openly.. I recommend to them to meet secretly, not openly, and propagate the idea, just like the early Christians used to meet secretly in catacombs and other places to avoid persecution.
At present our task is to widely propagate the idea. Once that is done on a large scale the ways and means of reunification will be found out by the people using their creativity.
Truth has great power ( satya mein badi shakti hoti hai ). The idea of reunification is a true idea. We are one nation, and have been one since Mughal times. How long can the truth be suppressed, and how long can we kept separated ?.
