According to a news report of Indian Express the alleged boat of Pakistani terrorists claimed to be destroyed by Indians on the night of 31st December 2014 has developed in such a dispute between Indian Navy and Coastal Guards which is going to end up in Court Martial of Loshali, DIG Indian Coastal Guards and insult for the Modi govt. on international level. It seems that alleged Pakistani terrorists boat’s ghost is haunting Indian Coastal Guards. One may remember that on new year night of 2015 suddenly Indian media started telecasting latest live thriller episode of propaganda against Pakistan. First of all Breaking News flashed that a suspicious motorboat coming from Pakistan into the high seas is reaching Porbandar coast, Gujarat. This news was telecasted by all Indian Channels whether private or state owned. After sometime, Indian Defense Ministry issued the statement that Indian Intelligence agencies had already warned Indian navy that terrorists armed with weapons have been launched towards Gujarat from Karachi and now this is the same boat that had been intercepted by Indian Coastal Guards. Indian Electronic Media, Anchorpersons and Defense Analysts left no stone unturned in forecasting the likely targets of Pakistani terrorists. After listening to these analyses one felt perhaps Indian media itself was present in the launching ceremony of the Pakistani terrorists. In order to give some authenticity to this RAWlywood thriller few clips from previous thriller of attacks over Mumbai on 26 November 2008 were also played. Viewers enjoyed this thriller from 1 am to 5 am with the drop scene of the Indian fiction movie that Pakistani terrorists killed themselves by blowing up the boat with explosives and sadly Indian judiciary could not play her role in this fiction.
In the morning of 1st January 2015, Indian Defense Ministry issued the press briefing that four terrorists along with explosives and arms were launched from Karachi on a motorboat used by fishermen; Indian Propaganda Industry’s RAW Entertainment along with other co-production Intelligence agencies had already informed Indian Navy and Coastal Guard about the boat. However, sadly terrorists blew up the boat so that Indian Judiciary could not play her role in this latest flop drama of RAW Entertainment India Inc. on the question by a journalist it was told that due to heavy wind it was not possible to secure the dead bodies and debris of the Pakistani boat. World might have believed in this RAWlywood thriller just like Mumbai attacks or Parliament attack series but irony of the fate that an ex-Commodore from Indian Navy belonging to Indian Congress party challenged the authentic version of latest Indian thriller by saying that Indian navy should be ashamed of the performance in this thriller that Coastal Guards of Indian Navy having four Cruisers of 2800 Horsepower along with Helicopters chased a 30 horsepower fishermen motor boat for one hour and failed to get control of the boat. What a protector of Indian coastline? Member of Congress party also raised the point that no one will dare to go into high seas on a fishermen boat while sea is at storm. On the concerns raised by Indian Congress and other Opposition parties; Indian Defense Ministry changed its stance and Indian Express published new report that the persons in the boat were smugglers of Diesel and Wine not Pakistani terrorists. Indian Defense Ministry remained silent on new story and just said that committee has been formed to enquire into the issue. BK Loshali, DIG Coast Guards is still sticking to his statement that boat was of the Pakistani terrorists and revealed in a gathering that Indian Navy destroyed on his orders meaning BOAT WAS NOT DESTROYED by alleged terrorists. The statement of Loshali created trouble for Indian Defense Ministry. Congress and other parties demanded that real facts should be disclosed; if the boat was of the smuggler then their identity and nationality should be disclosed, if they were Pakistani terrorists then remains of destroyed boat and dead bodies should be provided or Indian govt. should accept that this was the part of the new year drama.
In order to avoid this shameful situation Indian Defense Minister stated in the parliament that smugglers were on the boat who in order to avoid arrest blew themselves along with the boat. Modi was also present during the session of question answers at Indian Parliament. With the stance of Indian govt. in the Parliament, Indian Express uploaded the video of Loshali in which he is saying that
“Let me tell you,” he said, “I hope you remember 31st December night… we blew off that Pakistan… We have blown them off… I was there at Gandhinagar and I told at night, blow the boat off. We don’t want to serve them biryani…”
With the uploaded video a new discussion started in India, some are discussin it in the light of law while others from the human rights’ point of view while other are searching for the clue of internal tussle between Indian Coast Guards and Navy which has been now revealed due to the enmity towards Pakistan and Boat drama. Modi and his Cabinet had to face the shame in this flopped drama (if they have any). Now there are the reports that Indian govt. has decided to dismiss Lasholi from services through court martial.
Bitter reality is that as long as Indian govt. would keep stick to the propaganda policy based upon enmity against Pakistan; Indians will have to face the shame due to their cheap dramas directed by RAW because like Bollywood movies consisting of semi-porn scenes it is not possible that thrillers of RAWllywood always hit the box office…
