Delhi this week the Union Commerce Minister Anand Sharma called for greater visa liberalisation to make it easier for businessmen to travel across the borders in the Subcontinent Sharma also called for more open borders better regional connectivity and expanded banking facilities But who is Sharma appealing to For India whose economy towers over those of its neighbours has to take much of the blame for lack of rapid progress in regional cooperation; and within India the Congress Party which has been in power for more than a decade should be held responsible for the poor condition of South Asian regionalism The eight-member SAARC (Afghanistan Bangladesh Bhutan India Maldives Nepal Pakistan and Sri Lanka) is the premier forum for regional cooperation but presides over one of the least integrated parts of the world To be fair Sharma has been ardent Indian champion of South Asian regionalism It is also well-known that Sharma has the strong backing of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh who has repeatedly articulated an impressive vision for regional economic cooperation both at the multilateral level in the SAARC as well as the bilateral level with Bangladesh and Pakistan As the decade long UPA tenure comes to a close it is quite clear that Sharma and the PM have not been able to persuade the Congress Party to see the strategic virtues of trade liberalisation Given its populist protestations against globalization the Congress leadership has never embraced Manmohan Singh’s quest for economic integration in the Subcontinent and beyond in Asia It is also evident that the UPA government has been too weak to implement some of the decisions on regional cooperation that it has taken Whether it is visa liberalization or modernizing trade infrastructure on the borders political ambivalence and administrative dysfunction have prevented the UPA government from turning its declared commitments into tangible outcomes While the Manmohan Singh government has indeed reduced tariff barriers against imports from least developed neighbours it has found it harder to remove India’s multiple non-tariff barriers The situation is more complicated in the case of Pakistan where India has allowed other political considerations to limit the trade possibilities India which complains against its growing trade imbalance with China faces increasingly vocal protests from its neighbours against India’s trade surpluses The inability to translate sensible regional goals into practical results will go down as one of the greatest failures of the UPA government’s decade long tenure in office The prospects for a more imaginative regional economic policy under the next government look dim with the national leadership of the BJP showing no vision for South Asian economic regionalism The BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi has often dropped hints of a different approach but is yet to articulate ambitious regional goals and a credible strategy to achieve them (The

Washiqur Rahman by Islamic fanatics in Dhaka is a sign of the impunity with which criminality thrives in the country Rahman’s killing comes a little over a month after another blogger and writer Avijit Roy was butchered to death in full view at the Ekushey book fair organised in remembrance of the language martyrs of February 1952 Roy who held dual Bangladeshi-US citizenship had been threatened with death for a long time but he clearly did not take such threats seriously On a visit to Bangladesh with wife Rafida Ahmed who also came under attack he obviously thought like so many others that the book fair grounds were a safe place for Bangladesh’s liberal classes The police and other security forces had after all assured citizens that there were three or four layers of security on the premises In the end those layers amounted to nothing And therein lies a fundamental problem in Bangladesh today The country is still reeling from the effects of an unending siege and general strike called by the opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) in early January to demand fresh general elections under interim arrangements The BNP leading a so-called 20-party alliance and headed by former prime minister Khaleda Zia has found itself in a spot partly because of its own political miscalculations and partly because the government has doggedly ensured that party members and leaders are unable to appear in public A large number of senior BNP politicians are in prison; others are fugitive within the country and abroad; some have lapsed into silence Khaleda Zia remains in self-imposed confinement at her party office in Dhaka’s affluent Gulshan residential area She has defied summons by the court to appear before it in a corruption case Her lawyers and she have demanded that prior guarantees of security be provided beforeshe makes her way to court The government has laughed off the suggestion The ruling Awami League for all its bravado about conditions in the country being normal is worried Fears of a slide in the economy which projects an annual GDP growth rate of slightly over6 per cent remain paramount Then there is worry about the government’s image slipping from not-so-good to bad given the incompetence it has displayed of late The case of the missing BNP politician Salahuddin Ahmed isa glaring instance of failure on the part of the security agencies Like Ilyas Ali a former BNP lawmaker abducted three years ago by individuals whose identities remain unknown Ahmed was reportedly picked up weeks ago by a groupof men in the middle of the night and has been missing since Ali never came back And Ahmed’s whereabouts are still not known The police and other security agencies of the government have said Ahmed was not seized by them a claim dismissed by his family and party But the agencies have not been able to locate the missing politician either It didn’t help that Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina chose to be flippantabout Ahmed’s disappearancein the parliament The nation’s unhappiness has spread affecting more and more spheres of life In the past couple of months students sitting for their school-leaving examinations have been under tremendous psychological strain because the BNP agitation meant their exam dates were constantly shifted around All appeals to the party to haltits strike and allow students to complete their examinations went in vain Leading BNP figureand former minister Hafizuddin Ahmed even retorted angrily that the political movement came before everything else The functionaries of the Awami League-led government are not to be left behind Information Minister Hasanul Haque Inu who leads a faction of the Jatiyo Samajtantrik Dal (JSD) has made it clear that the place for Khaleda Zia is not negotiations with the government but in prison Last month in what was described asa news conference but in whichshe declined to take questions Khaleda Zia laid all the blame for the current crisis on the Awami League There was no expression of contrition over the death of nearly 140 citizens in petrol bomb attacks across the country triggered by the BNP’s programme of blockade and hartals On the sidelines former military ruler Hussain Muhammad Ershad has injected fresh though unintended humour into the political scene Allah he has told the country would like to see his Jatiyo Party back in power All said and done there is an overwhelming sense of insecurity among citizens The police remain woefully inadequate when it comes to investigating crime or taking suspects into custody The government falls back every time a crime occurs on cliché: no criminals will be spared and justice will be done Brave words hardly followed by effective action Add to that the widespread perception that security forces happily harass opposition activists but look the other way when crimes are committed by elements linked to the ruling party As if that were not enough a minister of state Pramod Mankin advises the country’s indigenous population to act and think like Bengalis It is a throwback to 1972 when Bangladesh’s newly formulated constitution declined to give space to its non-Bengali population At the time the country’s founder Sheikh Mujibur Rahman had made it known that all citizens of Bangladesh were henceforth to be known as Bengalis The ramifications were to be terrible in places like the Chittagong Hill Tracts Bangladesh is a sad place today Its institutions remain weak its education system is endlessly battered its economy is under assault from politicians determined to wrest back power from their enemies its law-enforcement agencies do not perform to public satisfaction Society has split right down the middle along political lines In this chaos religious bigotry

against Gandhi a school of thought that began with BG Tilak and was perpetuated by “Tilakites” such as VD Savarkar Godse’s mentor Related News THE anniversary of the murder of Mahatma Gandhi has a different flavour this year Of late the man who killed him Nathuram Godse has been glorified publicly and not only by BJP MP Sakshi Maharaj who hailed him as a “patriot” (Maharaj has since apologised for this) But also by Hindu Mahasabha general secretary Acharya Madan who argued on TV that while Gandhi was responsible for the death of 10 lakh Hindus — the victims of Partition a catastrophe he attributed to the Mahatma — Godse had killed “for a cause” Hence his party’s decision to celebrate January 30 the day that Gandhi was killed as “Shaurya Divas” and to instal Godse’s bust in a new “temple” in Meerut before that day this year On January 30 a film Desh Bhakt Nathuram Godse is also supposed to be released nationwide Civil suits and police action may prevent these “celebrations” from actually taking place but the atmosphere has changed Critiques of Gandhi are no longer inhibited This change is also evident from the success of the new edition of Nathuram Godse’s Why I Assassinated Mahatma Gandhi his plea during his trial On re-reading this book which was banned until 1968 I found that it reveals the “rationality” behind some terrorist action Like SWRD Bandaranaike Yitzhak Rabin and so many others Gandhi was killed “for a cause” by someone from his own community But what was this “cause” And why is Godse’s voice being heard more today Godse and his associates’ decision to kill Gandhi was certainly determined by the circumstances of Partition and the death of Hindus in the course of the communal violence of 1947 But during his trial Godse also made clear that there was an ideological element to the decision: “I had never made a secret of the fact that I supported the ideology of the school that was opposed to that of Gandhiji I firmly believed that the teachings of absolute ahimsa as advocated by Gandhiji would ultimately result in the emasculation of the Hindu community and thus make the community incapable of resisting the aggression or inroads of other communities especially the Muslims” By his own admission Godse belonged to an ideological stream fed by Hindu nationalism and political violence against Gandhi a school of thought that began with BG Tilak and was perpetuated by “Tilakites” such as VD Savarkar Godse’s mentor For Godse if Gandhi remained alive his influence over the government of India was bound to benefit Pakistan Indeed his decision to kill the Mahatma was precipitated by the latter’s fast unto death to force the new Indian government to pay Pakistan Rs 550 million its share of pre-Partition assets Jawaharlal Nehru gave in to Gandhi’s demand Like Tilak Godse considered Gandhi to be an idealist whose good intentions could only produce disasters He therefore said during his trial: “I declare here before man and god that in putting an end to Gandhi’s life I have removed one who was a curse to India a force for evil and who had during 30 years of an egoistic pursuit of hare-brained policy brought nothing but misery and unhappiness” Godse’s interpretation of the Mahabharata also has similarities with Tilak’s Gita Rahasya (1915) At the end of his trial Godse said: “In fact honour duty and love of one’s own kith and kin and country might often compel us to disregard non-violence [In the Mahabharata] Arjun had to fight and slay quite a number of his friends and relations including the revered Bhishma because the latter was on the side of the aggressor It is my firm belief that in dubbing Ram Krishna and Arjun as guilty of violence the Mahatma betrayed a total ignorance of the springs of human action” One of the Mahatma’s sons Ramdas Gandhi sought an encounter (which would never take place) with Godse in a letter where he cited a sloka from the Bhagavad Gita and pleaded with him to “introspect a little so that at the end of our proposed meeting you will be able to recite this couplet from the Gita along with us” Godse was delighted with the proposal for he knew the Gita by heart and would recite entire chapters in prison In reply he wrote: “I thank you for having reminded me of the verses ‘My ignorance has disappeared I have regained normalcy’ from the Bhagavad Gita… After Arjun had said ‘I will do as you say’ he directly translated into practice the words of Lord Krishna ‘Remember me and fight’” Obviously Ramdas Gandhi’s conception of the Gita was very different from his own Before his execution Godse wrote to his parents: “You are the students of the Gita and have also learnt the Puranas Lord Krishna had recited this Gita to enlighten Arjun and the very same Lord Krishna had with his Sudarshan wheel chopped off the head of an Aryan king Shishupal not on a battlefield but on a sacrificial ground My mind is pure and my feelings are absolutely righteous; millions of people might speak in a million different ways but my mind has not become uneasy or shaken with repentance even for the moment If there is any heaven I shall certainly have my place reserved there for me” Godse was sentenced to death along with one of his accomplices Narayan Apte They went to the scaffold proclaiming “Long live undivided India” and with a copy of the Bhagavad Gita in hand Godse’s parents were not the only people who were prepared to believe that Nathuram had done the right thing in killing Gandhi Justice GD Khosla who was on the bench of the East Punjab High Court which started the final hearing of the accused’s appeal wrote in his own book The Murder of the Mahatma: “The highlight of the appeal before us was the discourse delivered by Nathuram Godse in his defence He spoke for several hours discussing in the first instance the facts of the case and then the motive which had prompted him to take Mahatma Gandhi’s life… The audience was visibly and audibly moved There was a deep silence when he ceased speaking Many women were in tears and men were coughing and searching for their handkerchiefs This silence was accentuated and made deeper by the sound of an occasional subdued sniff or a muffled cough… I have however no doubt that had the audience of that day been constituted into a jury and entrusted with the task of deciding Godse’s appeal they would have brought in a verdict of ‘not guilty’ by an overwhelming majority” Today it seems that for some people the time to rehabilitate Godse has come — and that the inhibitions of the past have gone after the victory of one idea of India over the other in the political arena The writer is senior research fellow at CERI-Sciences Po/CNRS Paris professor of Indian
