Afghan Situation Reminds Sanjay Raut Of India’s Partition, Says Horrors Would Have Been Prevented ‘If Godse Had Killed Jinnah’

Mumbai: Likening India’s partition to the present situation in Afghanistan, Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut on Sunday said it reminds people of the pain of destruction of a country’s existence and sovereignty.“The situation in Afghanistan reminds us of what is the pain of destruction of a country’s existence and sovereignty, ” he said in his weekly column ‘Rokhthok’ in the party mouthpiece ‘Saamana’.Raut, who is executive editor of ‘Saamana’, also said if Nathuram Godse had killed Muhammad Ali Jinnah, “who was responsible for creating Pakistan”, instead of Mahatma Gandhi then the partition could have been avoided and there would have been no need for observing August 14 as ‘Partition Horrors Remembrance Day’.Comparing India’s partition to the current situation in Afghanistan, he said: “How can the pain of partition be eased unless the part which was broken away is included back? There will be no peace of mind. “The Shiv Sena leader said “even though we feel an ‘Akhand Hindustan’ should happen, it doesn’t look possible”.READ: WATCH | Heartwarming Video Of Little Girl Kissing Infant After IAF Flight Lands With 168 Evacuees From Afghanistan“But, hope is eternal. If PM Narendra Modi wants an ‘Akhand Hindustan, he is welcome. He should also speak about what he plans to do about 11 crore Muslims from Pakistan,” PTI quoted Raut as saying.Quoting Marathi writer Narhar Kurundkar, Raut further said the advocates of ‘Akhand Hindustan’ had accepted the idea of the Muslim League and two-nation theory and did not fight against it.The Shiv Sena leader said Mahatma Gandhi was not in active politics when a system of separate Muslim electorate was introduced by the British.Raut further said Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru abolished the system of separate Muslim electorate and special perks for them when India gained freedom.
