Chautala’s Gotala

Why did Mr. Om Prakash Chautala throw lavish Ramzan Iftaar dinners to appease Jihadis?

Mr. Om Prakash Chautala is a Hindu - a vegetarian Hindu - hailing from the brave Jat Hindu community whose fearless warriors have sacrificed their lives to defend India, Haryana and Hindu Dharma for centuries against Islamic aggression.

Then why did the then Chief Minister of Haryana, Mr. Chautala, host lavish Ramzan Iftaar dinners that served beef biryani on Haryana's sacred soil? To appease Jihadis?

This Tribune article is the proof: http://www.tribuneindia.com/2000/20001222/haryana.htm

On December 21, 2000, Mr.Chautala threw a lavish Ramzan Iftaar party to appease Jihadis in Nuh city (then part of Gurgaon district). He organised this Iftaar where his guests of honour were the Muslims of Mewat who flocked in large numbers to feast on beef biryani, just like vultures arriving at a road-kill. 

Accommodating such a big crowd may have been a problem for most but not for Chautala; he simply converted a large tract of farm land into what he called an "Iftar park" just outside the city.

Muslim leader from Kashmir, Dr. Farooq Abdullah was the Chief Guest at this Iftaar Party hosted by Chief Minister of Haryana, Om Prakash Chautala.

Abdullah (whose name means “Slave of Allah”) expressed his sentiments while addressing a gathering of those who had assembled to offer namaaz on the occasion after observing the fast. The offering of Namaaz preceded the Iftaar party.

Voicing the long-standing demand of the Muslim residents of Mewat, Abdullah urged the Chief Minister of Haryana to grant the separate status of a district to Muslim-majority Mewat region by breaking it away from Gurgaon district. He reminded Mr Chautala that this would also fulfill the electoral promise of the INLD, now in power.

Speaking on the occasion, Mr Chautala remained equivocal on the demand for a separate Muslim-majority district for Mewat. However, he assured the gathering that he would always obey Dr Abdullah. But he said that he could not make the announcement on the spot as his government was inhibited on account of the fact that this was a census year.

Mr Chautala said that the Iftaar party was organised to promote brotherhood among all sections of the society.

Praising Ramzaan, Mr Chautala said that “roza” (selective fasting) observed by Muslims, steel them spiritually and psychologically. Also, it reminds all concerned the pangs of pain experienced by the deprived sections of the society. The well-offs can empathise with the trial and tribulations faced by the have-nots only after they experience the pain themselves. The occasion here was contrived so that he could have first-hand experience of poverty and hardship of the people of the area, Mr Chautala said in a laudatory tone.

[Mr.Chautala forgot to add that as part of the silly “Roza”, the Muslims stuff themselves with rich, oily food in the morning, sleep through the afternoons lazily without working and then gorge themselves with rich, oily food in the evenings. Is that fasting, Mr.Chautala? Go ask your Hindu relatives what fasting truly means. To Hindus, “Fasting” means neither eating nor drinking any morsel of food or even a drop of water for the entire day, and still continuing to have an active, work-based day-time schedule. Samjhey aap?]

Mr Chautala pulled all stops to take on his political opponents who had been reportedly criticising the organising of Iftaar parties. The opponents had made statements saying that Mewat did not require Iftaar parties but developmental works.

Mr Chautala responded saying that since he took over he sanctioned Rs 25 crore for various development works in Mewat. He emphasised that it was his party’s government which tried to bring water to Mewat through the Ujjina dam.

State machinery had been overactive in the past few days to make the occasion a grand success. Although the district administration gave impression that it was not organised by the state, the contrary to it was discernible. The authorities had divided the sitting enclosure in 28 parts on a huge area of land.

Several MLAs and Ministers and religious leaders relating to Islam were present on the podium.

Mr.Chautala, are you listening to us? You owe the people of Haryana an answer and an apology for your opportunistic mindset and short-sighted decision to support Islam and destroy Haryana.

In 2005, you betrayed Haryana by announcing the religious partition of Haryana and the creation of a new Muslim-majority district called Mewat.

NUH (Gurgaon), October 2, 2004

Haryana Chief Minister Om Prakash Chautala today announced the creation of a new district, the 20th in the state, called “Satyamev Puram” for areas falling under Mewat encompassing five revenue blocks in Gurgaon and one in Faridabad district. 

The announcement is a follow-up on a promise made to the people of Mewat, more than four years ago, for a separate district for them by Mr Chautala.

On the flip side, the Rashtriya Swayemsevak Sangh, the Vishwa Hindu Parishad, the Bajrang Dal, the Shiv Sena and other Hindu organisations took out a procession and blocked the national highway (Delhi-Jaipur) near Rajiv Chowk for about an hour in protest against the creation of the new district.

The agitationists had planned to block the passage of the Chief Minister’s cavalcade which was to cross the route to reach here. However, they came a cropper on this front as the cavalcade crossed much earlier than they had expected.

Making the announcement at a well-attended public meeting here, Mr Chautala said the district headquarters of Satyamev Puram would be Nuh, considered to be the political and social fulcrum of Mewat. Mewat is dominated by Meo Muslims. While Nuh, Taoru, Nagina, Ferozepur Jhirka and Punhana are the revenue blocks falling in Gurgaon district, Hathin falls in Faridabad. Assembly segment-wise, Nuh, Taoru and Ferozepur Jhirka fall in Gurgaon, and Hathin segment falls in Faridabad.

In order to give a calendar importance to the event, it was coincided with the Gandhi Jayanti and the birth anniversary of former Premier Lal Bahadur Shastri today. 

According to Mr Chautala, the new district will become functional from November 1, the Haryana Day.
Mr Chautala also laid a foundation stone here for a mini-secretariat and a water scheme under the rubric “Rainy well” at Madiaki village. 

The scheme, billed to cost Rs 425 crore to the state exchequer, is expected to boost the water supply system for the entire Mewat region. Water from the Yamuna will be drawn near Hodal (Faridabad) from where it will be distributed through a network of pipe lines. 

Several members of the Haryana Cabinet and MLAs of the ruling INLD were present on the occasion.
The Chairman of the National Minority Commission, Mr Trilochan Singh, who accompanied Mr Chautala, in his speech lauded the Chief Minister. Mr Singh, who is also an MP from Haryana, cited the state, especially Mewat, as an exemplar of communal amity.

[HW adds: Mewat is an example of communal harmony? Since when? Is Mr.Trilochan Singh sleeping or stupid? It appears that Mr.Singh has not experienced Nuh's Jihadi riots of 1992 nor aware of their daily cow slaughter, their sexual slavery of Hindu girls and murders of Hindus by Jihadis. Or perhaps, he is a "good friend" and well-wisher of the Muslim mafia.]
