The BJP, which started celebrating the “horror of partition”, again targeted the country’s first prime minister, Jawaharlal Nehru, for partition. He wondered where were the people who were tasked with fighting these divisive forces at the time?
The BJP, which celebrates the second partition on August 14 as Memorial Day, released a video. In a video describing the events of the partition of India in 1947, the BJP criticizes Jawaharlal Nehru for “complying with the demands of the Muslim League led by Muhammad Ali Jinnah for the creation of Pakistan”.
Those who had no knowledge of the cultural heritage, civilization, values, pilgrimages of India, in just three weeks, they drew the boundary between peoples living together for centuries.

BJP worked hard and used very advanced technology to make this video of around 7 minutes. Images, videos and dramatic scenes from the Score were used in the video. The uplifting music has also been well edited.
It was said in this video that a number of people sitting in a room decided the fate, dividing millions, but the audience ignored them. It is said in the video that India could not stop this partition in 1947 because the Congress leaders who were in charge of preventing this partition, at the last moment, accepted the partition proposal without putting the Indian people in trust. In this video, Nehru was not held responsible by taking his name, but when these things are said in the video, images and videos of Jawaharlal Nehru are shown.
The BJP video shows Cyril John Radcliffe, whose partition map roughly divides Punjab and Bengal in half. The video asked how a person who had no knowledge of Indian cultural heritage was allowed to divide India in just a few weeks. Visuals of Nehru appeared throughout the video.

Prime Minister Modi tweeted about it this morning. himself.
Today on #PartitionHorrorsRemembranceDayI pay tribute to all those who lost their lives during Partition and applaud the resilience and courage of all who suffered during this tragic time in our history.

Congress hit back after posting this BJP video. MP Jairam Ramesh said the prime minister’s real intention marking the day is to use the most painful historical events as fuel for his current political battle.
“The modern Savarkar and Jinnah continue their efforts to divide the country,” he said.

Jairam Ramesh said the tragedy of the score cannot be misused to promote hatred and prejudice.
He said, “The truth is that Savarkar gave birth to the two-nation theory and Jinnah realized it. Sardar Patel wrote, “I felt that if we did not accept the partition, India would be split into several pieces and would be completely ruined”.
Jairam Ramesh asked if the Prime Minister would also remember Jana Sangh founder Syama Prasad Mookerjee who backed the partition of Bengal against the wishes of Sarat Chandra Bose who was part of independent India’s first cabinet when the aftermath tragedies of the score were clearly visible. . But were visible.
The Congress MP said, “The Indian National Congress will carry on the legacy of Gandhi, Nehru, Patel and many others who were relentless in their efforts to unite the nation. The politics of hatred will be defeated.
More country news
Let’s say the BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi himself have already held Jawaharlal Nehru responsible for the partition. In February 2020, Prime Minister Modi made such a statement in Parliament. He had even said that the country was divided in two to achieve the ambition of one. The Prime Minister said in an oppositional tone: “To fulfill his wish to become Prime Minister, a line was drawn on the map and India was split in two. After partition, Hindus, Sikhs and other minorities were subjected to unimaginable persecution in Pakistan.
By the way, the Modi government has been accused that since the government of Narendra Modi was formed in the center, it has become a fashion to ignore the contribution of Jawaharlal Nehru in building the country and the struggle for freedom.
