Not to be outdone, Mughal Emperor Aurangazeb tortured and put to death the ninth Sikh Guru, Tegh Bahadur.
History has neither forgotten nor forgiven Aurangazeb but certain committed historians bowing to pelf, pressure and power have dared to describe Aurangazeb as ‘secular’, which is a terrible travesty of justice.
Full credit to Sundaram for highlighting the diabolical disservice of some of our historians who bring nothing but discredit to our ancient and yet modern civilization.

Nothing to worry about it
BJP’s national executive meeting is over and the party, as per the spokesperson, had free frank debate, on poll outcome. It also confirmed that there will be no dilution of party ideology, which is eternal.
The media, electronics in particular, have overplayed the differences in the party. It’s nothing but natural in a party where true inner-party democracy exits. Prior to 2009 Parliament elections, from 2004, BJP had almost won all the Assembly elections but the failure in the Parliament elections, should not be taken as defeat to its ideology, but the reasons need to be carefully analysed.
The media had jumped into conclusion that it was defeat of Hinduvta and started advising BJP about dos and don’ts .When the PM and the ruling party can openly announce that particular (minority) community has the first choice of national resources and prepare community based budget no media raised figure that it’s communal.
The Churches in Kerala, ordered their followers to vote against CPI(M) in the recent elections, now celebrate this as a victory. BJP has been exposing this pseudo secularism, should continue to do so and fight for true secular society.
What BJP need now is to attract more people, gen-next in particular, towards its ideals.Our electorate consists nearly 60 per cent below 40 years of age, hence BJP should identify and groom younger talents, for which there is no dearth in the party, and reconfirm that it’s really a party of difference.

Making of a match
Pakistan has won the WC T20 in grand style and they deserved the same. Pakistan, which lost the Cup to India in South Africa by 5 runs continued their efforts and defeated Sri Lanka convincingly.
One feels sorry that our India went out of the tournament rather unceremoniously. But Pakistan played as one unit and today they are the champs. Main architect of their victory Afridi is surely a player of high talents. His bowling was consistently good throughout and troubled all top batsmen.
It is a fact Pakistan emerged out of the blue this time and clinched the cup at the Mecca of Cricket Lords in England. South Africa has the habit of losing crucial ties and this time also they lost in the semis. Kiwis were outplayed totally. England and Australia have been exposed in the shortest format of the game.
