What Congress has got in the last seven decades is a non-democratic organisation with a foreign-born person wielding immense power.
What has Congress done in the last few decades? It has institutionalised corruption and virtually poisoned every institution in India.

Look at the trail of scams it has left behind.
Congress was too powerful and had built a powerful eco-system to operate in India. Its brother-in-arm were the Left parties. The ideologically similar Communists!
The Congress eco-system has deep roots. University professors, columnists, news anchors, historians, censor and cultural board presidents, opinion makers, judges, journalists, police officers, arms dealers, you name it.
Running a large country of over one billion people needs all kinds of support. Every bit is needed to retain political power. From Church to Islamists to Communists, all were partners.
But Islamic terrorism was real. It killed real people in real world, in India and world wide.
A public tilt towards BJP was expected, both as the only right of center option and also because of people's disillusionment with corruption.
Creating a 'Equivalent' was necessary. Something to proclaim that 'Islamic Terror' is not the only terrorism going on.
To balance the Islamic terror, Hindu terror was needed and so it was created.
Hemant Karkare was possibly one such useful instrument in the larger eco-system. Hemant' role needs to be investigated. The kind of corruption see during UPA's 10 years is unprecedented. Each episode of corruption needs to be scrutinized.
Scrutiny of Hemant's case is in the context and needs to be done thoroughly. Anyone who is crying that this is politics is not being true to the nation.
I await the complete investigation.
