More Top NewsWritten by Johnson T A | Bengaluru | Updated: September 13 2016 8:51 am A vehicle from Tamil Nadu in flames after it was torched by pro-Kannada activists during a protest over Cauvery water row in Bengaluru on Monday (PTI Photo) Top News A bandh called on September 9 by pro-Karnataka groups to protest a Supreme Court order to the state to release water from four reservoirs on the Cauvery River to Tamil Nadu had passed off peacefully with no major incidents of violence There were stray reports that a Tamil youth who bad-mouthed the bandh on social media had been roughed up by local Karnataka chauvinists With the bandh having passed off peacefully it seemed life was back to normal with schools and colleges opening across Karnataka even in Mandya the epicentre of the protests However before noon on Monday reports of targetted attacks on Tamil Nadu-registered vehicles and Tamil-owned business establishments in Bengaluru and Mysuru spread like wildfire Within hours a bandh-like atmosphere had returned to the state The incidents on Monday had little to do with a Supreme Court order for Karnataka to release 12000 cusecs of water per day to Tamil Nadu till September 20 instead of the 15000 cusecs per day ordered for release until September 15 by its earlier order The violence was a direct result of the fanning of chauvinist emotions in both states by reports on television news channels Even before the Supreme Court began hearing a plea by Karnataka on Monday to modify the September 5 order for release of water the portents of trouble were evident in the state Early on Monday some television news channels showed images of the New Woodlands Hotel in Chennai owned by a family from Karnataka being attacked with petrol bombs Reports said the Kannadiga-owned hotel was targetted because Tamils were roughed up during the Cauvery protests Many local channels also showed images of a Kannadiga being roughed up by Tamil activists in Rameswaram and the vandalising of buses from Karnataka Within an hour of these incidents being reported on local TV channels Vatal Nagaraj a veteran leader who exhorts Kannada chauvinism told a local channel “We will also show them” clearly indicating retaliatory incidents in Karnataka The incidents in Tamil Nadu were an alleged reaction to images shown on Tamil channels of a Tamil youth being roughed up in Bengaluru on Friday “It has also come to my notice that an incident involving a youth by name Santhosh in Bengaluru has been blown out of proportion by media channels in Tamil Nadu and this is likely to incite passions and violence against Kannada speaking people” Chief Minister Siddaramaiah said in a letter on Monday to his Tamil Nadu counterpart J Jayalalithaa while assuring protection of Tamil people in Karnataka and calling for the protection of Kannadigas in Tamil Nadu With a large number of anti-social elements who have lost currency in recent years looking at cashing in on passions over the Cauvery River dispute with little concern for rule of law or the real issues of water sharing it is time for politicians on both sides to be statesmen and prevent further fanning of emotions that would reopen old wounds in Tamil Nadu-Karnataka relations For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Top NewsWritten by Abhinav Kumar | Updated: January 17 2017 12:45 am Perhaps Constable Yadav was a vegetarian with no opinion on the subject Or perhaps good mutton curry would have spoilt the story he was trying to tell Illustration: C R Sasikumar Top News The BSF has been ambushed Not by the enemy we face eyeball to eyeball every day across the nearly 3000-km Indo-Pak border But by one of its own Sometime on January 8 Constable Tej Bahadur of the 29th Battalion of the BSF deployed on the LoC who after over 20 years of service was supposed to proceed on voluntary retirement on January 31 decided enough was enough In a couple of videos shot probably with the assistance of unknown colleagues Tej Bahadur created a compelling narrative of hardship and neglect around burnt chapatis and watery dal For some reason the quality of the mutton curry visible in the video was not commented upon Perhaps Constable Yadav was a vegetarian with no opinion on the subject Or perhaps good mutton curry would have spoilt the story he was trying to tell Predictably the videos created a media firestorm and a public outcry at the plight of our jawans Taking the allegations at face value the government and BSF leadership have announced various steps to look into the matter If the allegations in the video are true those responsible will be identified and punished If the videos lead to a trail of systematic abuse and corruption in the supply of rations to frontline soldiers of the BSF that will be identified and rooted out That of course will take more time to fix However in our age of instant outrage and instant fixes this may not be enough So expect sweeping generalisations and magic pill solutions to dominate this debate for now Not surprisingly a few other copycat videos have surfaced It would seem from these outbursts that India’s paramilitary forces are rotten to the core Nothing could be further from the more complicated truth The over one million-strong paramilitary forces are the backbone of India’s internal security and along with the Indian Army the guardians of its lengthy dangerous and inhospitable borders From the icy heights of Kashmir and Ladakh to the parched wilderness of the Rann of Kutch from the mangroves of the Sunderbans to the thick jungles of the Northeast the men of the BSF the ITBP the SSB stand guard over India’s borders While the CRPF battles Naxals in India’s heartland the CISF guards our vital infrastructure the RPF guards our railways and the NSG performs a crack anti-terror and VIP protection role The hybrid role of these organisations means that their DNA contains strands from the army and the police in terms of organisation and administrative structures Barring the CRPF and the RPF all the other forces are the creation of an independent democratic India in response to specific needs They owe their creation and evolution to visionary founders and stalwarts of the Indian Police Service (IPS) They in turn drew on the expertise of officers from the army the police and other fields In the case of the BSF the legendary duo of Rustomji and Ashwini Kumar provided the initial vision and inspiration And even today to get an opportunity to serve and eventually lead these organisations is a privilege that any IPS officer worth their salt accepts with honour and humility The recent allegations have predictably called into question the IPS leadership of these organisations One section led by army veterans would like the command and control of these organisations to pass into the hands of army officers Another segment would like these organisations to be led by respective officer cadres who at present occupy the bulk of command and middle-level supervisory roles in these organisations To seriously consider either possibility would be to ignore the complex roles these organisations perform within the federal contours of our internal security structure Tej Bahadur has asked uncomfortable questions They need to be answered coolly rationally and systematically Looking at the videos three separate questions immediately come to mind First is the complaint about poor quality of cooking Second is it about the poor quality of rations supplied Third is it about insufficient quantity of rations supplied Or perhaps Tej Bahadur is complaining about a combination of the three Then beyond the immediate concerns there are larger issues raised by the video Is this a one-off issue or the normal state of affairs in the BSF Is it a case of a general unprofessional neglect of welfare issues or does it point to systematic corruption by those responsible for procurement and distribution of rations The outrage in the media and the public is genuine and needs to be addressed However hype and hysteria cannot dominate the discourse on this vital and sensitive subject The BSF has ordered a court of inquiry to look into all these aspects; anyone vaguely familiar with the working of the organisation will know that once its findings are received if truth exists in these allegations responsibility for the lapses that led to this outrage will be fixed the guilty will be punished and concrete steps taken to prevent its recurrence If the issue is poor quality of cooking that is purely a local internal issue of the BSF If the issue is quality and quantity of rations as well then other stakeholders are involved as rations to the BSF on the Line of Control are supplied by the army But the problems highlighted by Tej Bahadur will not be resolved in the course of a breathless hysterical 24/7 news cycle Before we damn the BSF leadership in our minds do remember that each day nearly 200000 BSF men stand guard over the Indo-Pak and Indo-Bangladesh border It is inconceivable that they could do so without being properly looked after in terms of their basic needs To suggest otherwise is dangerous and disingenuous Predictably in the wake of Tej Bahadur plenty of copycat videos claiming similar malpractices in the army and other uniformed forces have surfaced While the airing of grievances is extremely important for our forces given that the rights of all uniformed personnel are restricted by law social media cannot become the primary platform for airing these complaints Our uniformed services cannot be run like a mohalla sabha The nature of their duties require discipline hierarchy and loyalty These values cannot be swept away in a knee-jerk response The motto of the BSF is “Duty unto Death” It is an uncompromising creed based on a warrior ethic It demands the virtues of courage sacrifice discipline and loyalty This ethic is not limited to facing bullets of the enemy but also covers enduring all manner of physical and mental hardships It requires respecting organisational norms and seeking improvements within them The video posted by Tej Bahadur may be the genuine lament of an aggrieved soldier but it is bereft of this ethic His own poor record of discipline in his 20 years in the force suggests that he never really identified with this ethic The day our uniformed forces replace the ethic of the warrior with the ethic of the mercenary it would mark the unraveling of India The writer an IPS
