Chandigarh, May 22: Senior BJP leader and Medical Education Minister Mr. Tikshan Sud today urged President Mrs. Pratibha Patil to immediately dismiss Union Home Minister Mr. Shiv Raj Patil for his failure to adhere to the oath of Minister to uphold the Constitution of India and for his utter failure to ensure protection to the ordinary citizens of India.
Taking a serious note of Union Home Minister of the largest democracy of the World of ensuring protection from gallows to Afzal Guru preempting the decision on mercy petition to be taken by President of India, Mr. Sud said that by doing so he is not only committed the breach of privilege of Parliament but also denigrated the august office of President of India.
He said that by comparing dreaded terrorist Afzal Guru with innocent Punjabi citizen Sarabjit, languishing in Pakistan Jail, Mr. Patil had not only hurt the feelings of Crores of Punjabis but his foolhardy statement unilaterally branding an innocent citizen a terrorist has put an question mark on his safe release from Pakistan jail. He said that if Sarabjit is hanged by Pakistan Government in future, no one else but Mr. Shiv Raj Patil would be responsible for it.
Taking a dig on Union Home Minister for making India a safe haven for terrorists, Mr. Sud said that appeasement policy of U.P.A Government has given a fillip to terrorist attacks in the country. He said that when Union Home Minister can think of pardoning a dreaded terrorist, who dared to attack temple of democracy, i.e. Parliament with a view to eliminate all elected representatives of the country, he cannot guarantee the right of life to the citizens of country and should be immediately sacked by the President.
Mr. Sud said that if this trend of pardoning terrorist continued, day is far off when Dawood Ibrahim responsible for Mumbai blasts would be respectfully extradited to India, guaranteeing him pardon from gallows as it had already been done in the case of Salim while extraditing him from Portugal.
The BJP leader questioned that can one think of President of USA pardoning Osama Bin Laden? He said Afzal Guru, Dawood Ibrahim and Salim are Osamas of India and no government has any right to pardon them.
Seeking his dismissal from Union Cabinet with immediate effect, Mr. Sud also asked Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh to seek apology from nation for purposedely delaying the execution of Afzal Guru.
