For the first time Egyptian President has been invited to be the chief guest in Republic Day Parade in Delhi. Indian govt is very selective in choosing the chief guest and rightly so, choice indicates the direction of diplomatic wind. Modi is no exception in this regard, but Modi is quite explicit in selecting the direction of diplomacy.
So, before I move further in this article, I will point out some turning points in Egyptian history.
Union of Egypt and Syria from 1958 to 1961.
Military defeat in 1967 war against Israel
Yom Kippur war of 1973 and realisation of own status as a power.

The third one is the signing of – Camp David Agreement in 1977, which recognised the state of Israel and angered the Arab world and Palestinians.

The fourth one is assassination of Anwar Sadat.

Anwar Sadat, the 3rd President of Egypt, was assassinated on 6 October 1981 during the annual victory parade held in Cairo to celebrate Operation Badr, during which the Egyptian Army had crossed the Suez Canal and taken back a small part of the Sinai Peninsula from Israel at the beginning of the Yom Kippur War.

The fifth one is the establishment of govt established by Islamic radicals in Egypt lead by Mohamed Morsi (Muslim Brotherhood) after 2011 elections which sustained itself for almost one year. It was toppled by Military only.

Now there are certain conclusions out of this entire narration. First one is, Nationalism is too strong a force to be disregarded. Egypt and Syrian made a union and then separated again. Religion cannot be a single factor in union of nations. Bangladesh is another example. Next lesson is as a Stateman one must take unpleasant decision.
President Anwar Sadat did that only when he entered into Camp David Agreement. I will come to important conclusion here, countries, Communities, Societies, individuals, all behave in selfish way, and it is the only natural way for them. After the Yom Kippur war of 1973 in which Egypt regained some military respect, Anwar Saadat realised that military option against Israel was a futile option, so he took a bold and selfish decision in favour of his country by signing the Camp David Agreement in 1977. He ditched Palestinians cause for good. Now, look at the Palestinians, they were given shelter by Jordon and in return they turned against him to launch a civil war against Jordanian King in 1970. Communities are selfish. Nothing good or bad in that.

Fundamentalists can create violence, but violence alone cannot sustain the nation. Mohamed Morsi of Muslim Brotherhood became President of Egypt out of popular support only but could not sustain due to popular uprising against him.

Military stepped in to save the nation. Popular support to come to power and popular uprising against the same ruler is not unusual in power game specially when expectations are not realised. Most of the rulers come to power on high expectations only, realisation of expectations is next to impossible in real politic. Morsi died in jail only. Taliban is another example and so is Pakistan .

Why is Modi focusing so much on Arab nations? We have the best of the relations with Arab nations barring Qatar and Turkey.

Now, let us come to India, what are the lessons for Indian Muslims? India is maintaining best of the relations with Saudi Arabia, UAE, Bahrain, Oman and so many of them. Relations are bilateral because each country looks for own national interest. Reason is simple. India is too big a player, military power, economic giant, a prospective superpower, a big market to be ignored. None of these nations are bothered about Pakistan. This is realpolitik. Religion is part of realpolitik .'

What Modi is trying to tell Indian Muslims. It’s very simple, route to prosperity and peace goes through the understanding the realities of basic politics and international relations.

Now, let us look at our Muslim leadership. It’s not that we do not have some right-thinking Muslim leadership. General Shah and former Lt Governor of Delhi Najeeb Jung met Dr Mohan Bhagwat along with others and next day, there was criticism against them. What they discussed became insignificant. Why? Reason is very simple. Muslim leaderships have been hijacked by Ashraf at the cost of majority of Pashmanda Muslims who are native of this land. What Ashraf are up to? These are the same people, most of them voted for Pakistan but stayed in India to have the cake and eat it too. They are still in the fantasy of ruling the country either directly or through proxies like so called pseudo secular parties or probably find a way to rule through the organisations like PFI or Muslim brotherhoods. Till the time, these organisations are able to subvert our democracy, they are looking for their appeasement through these pseudo secular parties whose soft approach will pave the way for terrorist organisations to take over and establishment of Islamic rule in India. These frontal organisations continue to be peaceful nonviolent organisation till they show their fangs. They may even fight elections to hide their real intentions.


Two prominent Brotherhood offshoot groups in India are the Popular Front of India (PFI) (PFI) and the National Women’s Front (NWF). The PFI was recently banned in India, which has led to something of a resurgence of an older terrorist-designated group, the Students’ Islamic Movement of India (SIMI), which works alongside domestic extremists like the Indian Mujahideen (IM), while receiving external funding from the Qatar-Turkey-Pakistan (“QTP”) axis, and having links with the Pakistani-controlled jihadist ecosystem in Afghanistan that includes the Taliban and Al-Qaeda. The outside support for Islamist militancy in India is important, but the domestic sources of support are crucial to understand.

Modi is trying to establish an international axis with these moderate Arab nations to counter these fundamentalist Islamist who are not only a threat to India but to them also. Invitation to Egyptian president is an attempt in that direction. Unfortunately, our conservative Ashraf leadership has aligned itself with QTP axis (Qatar, Turkey, Pakistan) with no interest of Pasmanda Muslims in their mind. Reaction of Qatar to Nupur Sharma pseudo episode is the classical case. Simultaneously muted reaction of UAE and Saudi Arabia is also speaking about our alignment with them.

Anti-India tool kit is operational now and these elements along with so called liberal pseudo secular elements are part of that. BBC documentary on Gujrat riots is a classic case of manipulation of Muslim psyche in India. It also shows that they have no faith in Indian institutions when decision is given against them. Anti-national elements in India have to realise that this India is changed India and have little appetite for accepting any nonsense. Its time to change the course of history.
Let us have faith in our democracy , its institutions and establishment .
