Communal Violence Bill

Even after accepting partition of India on communal grounds to fanatic Muslims, Congress leaders remained blind to realities and declared India to be a secular state. They promoted secularism among Hindus, but ushered minorities to remain aloof from the National main stream. Instead of forging equality and unity through one civil rule for all, they created fear in the minorities to suspect Hindus. Directly and indirectly they encouraged minorities to bargain additional privileges to preserve and promote seclusion in the name of religion, language, personal laws, and institutions. They were motivated to increase population and emerge as a distinct vote bank to support so called ‘secular’ Congressmen. Thus minorities have multiplied in population and are separate ethnic groups to influence the formation of Governments at the Centre and States. It is no exaggeration that at the slightest excuse they talk about another partition of the Country and seek support across the borders.

Terrorism targeted against Hindus has bled India since partition. Though stated to be in majority, Hindus are living under perpetual fear of communal violence against their person, society and culture. All this is due to anti- Hindu policy of appeasements followed by Congress leaders headed by one family whose antecedents are shrouded in mysterious controversies.

PCTV Bill 2011

To top it all, now a draconian bill has been drafted under the leadership of UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi that is ready to be tabled in Parliament for approval. It is called Prevention of Communal and Targeted Violence Bill – 2011. If enacted, it will permanently divide Indian society in two communities. The Hindus will be called ‘Others’ (implying community) in the land of their origin. The second segment of Indian Nation will be called Minority community, who enslaved India centuries ago.

To begin with, minorities are identified as Muslims and Christians but more groups to their fold can be added such as Dalits, Buddhists, Jains, Sikhs or anyone if they wish to be detached from Hindus. In other words a time will come when Hindus will be outnumbered by minorities in India. Sonia Gandhi has already said that ‘India is not a Hindu country’ and her choice Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has said that ‘minorities have the first right over resources of the Country’. Their enthusiasm towards destruction of Hindu identities can be gauged from their thoughts and actions  regarding destruction of Rama Setu.

The Authors of this Bill

This ill-ominous bill has been the idea of UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi and a coterie close to her. It has been drafted by National Advisory Council (NAC), a nominated body having no constitutional status. The names of the principal members of the drafting and advisory committee are: Najmi Waziri, P.I.Jose, Teesta Setalvad, Farah Naqvi, Abusaleh Shariff, Asgar Ali Engineer, John Dayal, Justice Hosbet Suresh, Kamal Faruqui, Manzoor Alam, Maulana Niaz Farooqui, Ram Puniyani, Shabnam Hashmi, Sister Mary Scaria, Syed Shahabuddin, Aruna Roy, Anu Aga, Farah Naqvi, Harsh Mander, and Maja Daruwala. Almost all of them are Christians, Muslims or rabid anti-Hindu Leftists. From their past actions, most of them seem to have been born with an animus against the Hindu ethos.  They are notorious for their hate mongering proclivity against Hindus. It is relevant to say that Arvind Kejariwal, the founder of Aam Admi Party has also been a close associate of Aruna Roy.

The draconian Provisions at Glance

Exceptionally biased provisions of this Bill explained  in simple layman language reveal that this bill assumes that Hindus, the majority community of India, termed as  ‘Others’,  are the culprits and commit atrocities against ‘Groups’ of minority community such as Muslims and Christians. The consequences that flow are:-

  • This law is applicable only when the victim is a Muslim or a Christian, a member of minority group. If a case is registered against a Hindu, he has to prove his innocence. A Hindu victimized by communal violence cannot take any benefit. If a Hindu loses property, is humiliated or boycotted, this law would not apply.
  • During the trial, the court may issue orders to attach the property of the accused Hindu, but not the property of Muslim or Christian.
  • The victim belonging to minority only will be granted financial compensation within 30 days.
  • If any Hindu publishes, communicates, disseminates, broadcasts, and advertises by words, either spoken or written, news about communal violence he would be prosecuted for hate propaganda.
  • Under this bill, if a Muslim or a Christian complains against any Hindu leader or organization that his/her feelings have been offended, that person/organization would be hauled up.
  • Hindus would be prosecuted by ‘Communal Harmony Authority’ to be set up at the state and central levels. The ‘Communal Harmony Authority’ at the state and central levels shall have seven members each, of which four members, including chairman and deputy chairman, should be from the minority communities. Thus Hindus will always be in minority in this body.
  • All the crimes mentioned under his law are cognizable and non-bailable for the accused Hindus.
  • There will be no limitation of time. It means a ‘Minority’ can reopen all cases against Hindus, all past cases right from 1950 onwards.
  • A minority witness giving false statement before National authority CANNOT be prosecuted for giving FALSE evidence against a Hindu.

One sided Secularism with Anti Hindu mindset

It is relevant to mention that UPA Chairperson Sonia (Antonia Maino) Gandhi is a devout, professing Catholic.  She is of Italian origin and she is a naturalized citizen of India.  At marriage, she insisted that her husband Rajiv Gandhi convert to Christianity and that her children be raised as a Christian/Catholic.  Her son Rahul Gandhi (Raul Vinci) is reported to have told the American ambassador Timothy Roemer in 2009 that India is facing a greater terror threat from radical Hindu groups than from Muslim militant 5th columnists.  Both, Sonia and Rahul seem to suffer from an acute case of Hindu phobia; their mindset is unwavering in trying to suffocate and suppress Hindus legally in India.  The aim of this draconian bill is to achieve that goal. It is also interesting to note that Sonia Maino Gandhi’s advisors and ministers are almost all either Christians or Muslims.

Aimed to disintegrate Hindu Society

Although the stated purpose of the Bill is to address the question of communal violence in the country but the hidden aim is to communalize Indian polity, and create hatred against Hindus so that a vote bank of Muslims and Christians is strengthened for Congress wherein more groups could be added later as and when more Hindus detach themselves from their ancestral faith due to the draconian provisions of the bill and privileges made available to minorities consequent to implementation of this enactment. Naturally all minority institutions including Jamait-e-Ulema are forcing Congress for passing this bill. Congress wants this bill to win 2014 election with ‘Minority’ votes.

Why not to have Uniform Civil Code for all Indians?

Had the Government really been sincere to foster communal harmony; it must have passed Uniform Civil Code for all citizens. The distinction of minority community and majority community could have been automatically eroded.

Besides other repercussions, the passage of this draconian Bill can trigger a new wave of extortion by minority groups against the working and business class of Hindus. This will have colossal negative repercussions for the Indian economy. To avoid lifelong suffering, Hindus shall have no other option than to convert to minority faiths, or flee from India as refugees. Therefore the matter deserves to be taken seriously, understood and discussed to spread awareness.

This bill is downright dangerous for the unity and integrity of India. Hindus must scrutinize and examine the threat emanating from this bill. It is essential that we should wake up from the deep slumber, stop internal squabbles, learn to work in unison, and come up with a solid strategy to get rid of anti-Hindu UPA government. The noose is being tightened on Hindus. The survival of Hindus is at stake.  Our future generation will not forgive us if we just succumb under pressure and keep watching from sidelines as passive spectators.

Let us Discard Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day has been trespasses our cultural boundaries every year and leaves scars of violence and protests from the native population. The deployment of Police and day long coverage by media goes on if we were celebrating some national event sponsored by state. It is for the amusement of some misguided buddies who are habitual of escaping their studies. In most of the residential areas no such activity takes place. That indicates that most of the Indians are not in favor of this uncivilized gamut.

For whose benefit Valentine Day drum beating are sounded?

Two years ago Renuka Chowdhary posed as champion of Women’s libration and gave “Pub Bharo” advice to the Youth! Which segment of Indian women she tried to represent? Most of Hindus, Sikhs and Muslims are committed to their traditional values and reject the activities associated with Valentine day. Which direction these power hungry politicians are ushering the youth? Students are expected to have been committed to their studies and following some self discipline?

In Congress thinking, following our own customs and value system is ‘fundamentalism’, and ‘saffron terror’. Opening to perversity is regarded as ‘progress’! These so called Gandhians do not understand that resistance to an alien culture opposed to the local value system always shows up through mob anger. Still our “Anglo leaders” want Indians to celebrate valentine day with the support of police. This state sponsored assault has been going on our way of life?

How many amongst us had heard of Valentine’s Day about 10 years ago? How many Indian families would willingly allow their daughters and sisters to indulge in activities associated with the cupid invasion on Valentine’s Day? If this a sign of progress then why don’t we let the teenagers carry their love flames at every public place as well as homes. Also let them smoke, drink and recklessly drive because that also is included in individual freedom package.

 Nobody should point a finger towards us of being anti lovers or conservatives. At the same time we should be proud of observing discipline and self restraint while expression of sensual love feelings in public.

We have several multinational companies invading us through trade and cultural routes with weapons of superior technology, economic, and glamour of sensuality. They have already driven out Indian manufacturers and have created unemployment. Established corporate houses are turning channel distributors and service providers of foreign made consumer products.  This type of economic colonization will lead to economic imperialism. The process will be strategically consolidated on cultural plane to make Indian totally westernized and a mental slave of multinationals. Valentine day is one such occasion to sell such products.

If the passions become uncontrolled and violate the traditional norms, some discipline is necessary. No doubt we are secular in outlook and tolerant by nature, but that does not imply that our country is a blank billboard for anyone to come and write anything to the extent of obliterating the previous writings of greater saints. The youth has to be guided to adhere to the norms of the society that have been established by ancestors as a result of their experience, beliefs and traditions.

From this year onward – if you are sensitive towards rape victims, have some sympathy towards Kumbh pilgrims who lost their life in stampede or have any respect for the martyrs like Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sukhdev who were sentenced to death on this wretched day – then discard the activities associated with valentine day.

BJP should go alone!

Coalition governance has led to non-governance in the country. It is still fresh that most of the time Vajpayee’s government remained busy in keeping its allies together through ministerial berths, revoking professed policies or deferring action that was much-needed in the national interest. Finally it was just one vote that led to the collapse of the government leading to midterm poll.

Same is the story of Congress. There is a Majboor Prime Minister blaming his allies for Government scams to profess his personal cleanliness. On the other hand UPA government continues to be frequently impeded by allies. Its survival depends upon those who are accused of neck-deep corruption. They are supporting a puppet Prime Minister simply to enjoy the fruit of Governance and to scuttle the ongoing proceedings against their corrupt deeds.

Hopefully voters will see through the opportunist game of such discredited politicians and reject them at 2014 polls so that country gets rid of political menace of their breed. But it can also be foreseen that after the polls some of those worthless lots will manage to win. They will swap sides with Congress as well as BJP to hop into government to reap the benefits. BJP always remains isolated since vested interests and cover of pseudo secularism provide more option to the opportunists to side with Congress to keep majority community out of power in India. 

The situation remains to be dim. Democracy is turning out to be a costly luxury for the taxpayers. Politics has become the past time of certain families and vested groups who frequently regroup under various pretexts to grab political power. Many of our so-called leaders are the creations of media and sponsored by Mafia. Most of them are dissidents for some personal grudges and lead self-created factions based upon caste and region. Switching parties is their survival.

The governments formed by BJP alone in the states have been performing well, but wherever BJP is in alliance with others stability is threatened. The alliance partners have no national outlook or interest except to promote their own self at the cost of the BJP. They continue threats to switch alliance for better gains at the opportune time.

To appease its minority vote bank, JD (U) has also started flexing muscles to project Nitish Kumar as potential PM. JD (U) cannot risk sacrificing its government in Bihar. Even if RJD, LJSP, SP, Congress or someone else temporarily rescued their government in Bihar, such arrangement will not be lasting. In contrast, BJP at her own will get its own share of votes and do better by contesting all the seats in Bihar to form a government of its own.

It is certain that JD (U) will not let BJP follow her own nationalist agenda. Similarly, minorities shall never vote for BJP. Unless NDA allies support uniform civil code and abrogation of Article 370 and are in unison with like issues categorically, any alliance with them shall be opportunist merely to form a lame government. The perception that BJP represents the majority community and is committed to safeguarding nationalistic interests, gets eclipsed when BJP is handicapped to implement her own agenda because of the uncommitted allies.

The pro secular outbursts of JD (U) leaders against are not acceptable. Why do Nitish Kumar and Sharad Yadav think that Hindus have no rights in this country for safeguarding their interest and we have to continue pleasing minorities at every cost? Minorities have already alienated BJP due to misguided propaganda,  such ‘allies’ will alienate from BJP’s traditional vote bank. They shall not let BJP emerge as a nationalist force.

Formation of Electoral Alliances for 2014 is already underway. Provincial parties will find BJP a willing partner for easy piggy-back ride to power. Similar allurement will find BJP also attracted towards provincial alliances where BJP organization is week or non-existing. If that happened India will again be saddled with non functional coalition government.

Thus better go alone with confidence, committment and determination.

राष्ट्रीय भावनाओं की अनदेखी क्यों ?

भारत के स्वतन्त्रता संग्राम में जिन गीतों ने राष्ट्रभावनाओं को जगाया था उन में मुख्य थे ‘पगडी सम्भाल जट्टा’, ‘ छई’, ‘मेरा रंग दे बसन्ती चोला’, ‘सरफरोशी की तमन्ना अब हमारे दिल में है’, ‘कदम कदम बढाये जा खुशी के गीत गाये जा’, ‘सारे जहाँ से अच्छा हिन्दोस्तां हमारा’ और ‘वन्दे मात्रम’। इन गीतों में ‘जन गण मन अधिनायक जय है’ का कोई योग्दान नहीं था।

ईस्ट इण्डिया कम्पनी और उस के पश्चात के ब्रिटिश गवर्नमेन्ट के शासन में 1911 तक अंग्रेजों की राजधानी कलकत्ता में रही थी। 1857 की क्रान्ति के पश्चात आधुनिकी करण के नाम पर अंग्रेजों ने कुछ औपचारिक सुधार भी किये थे जिन का मूल उद्देष्य उपनेष्वादी तन्त्र को मजबूत करना था। लिखित कानून लागू कर के अंग्रेजों ने कचहरियों तथा न्यायालयों की स्थापना की गयी थी। कलक्त्ता में अंग्रेजों को हिन्दी सिखाने के लिये  ऐक फोर्ट विलियम नाम का कालेज खोला गया था  जिन में प्राध्यापकों के रूप में राजा शिव प्रसाद सितारे हिन्द, सदल मिश्र, लल्लू लाल और इंशा अल्ला खां जैसे हिन्दी के गद्य लेखकों को रखा गया था। आगे चल कर हिन्दी की खडी बोली का विकास भारतेन्दु हरिश्चन्द्र तथा आचार्य महावीर प्रसाद दिवेदी के सौजन्य से आरम्भ हुआ था । उस समय अंग्रेज़ हिन्दी को रोमन लिपी में ही लिखते और पढते थे। हिन्दुस्तान में अंग्रेजी साम्राज्य के लिये कलर्क तैय्यार करने के लिये मैकाले शिक्षा पद्धति शुरु की गयी थी जिस का मुख्य  

उद्देष्य हिन्दुस्तानियों के मन में उन की अपनी संस्कृति के प्रति नकारात्मिक तथा अंग्रेजी संस्कृति के प्रति आकर्षण पैदा करना था।

ऐक अंग्रेज ऐ ओ ह्यूम ने मैकाले पद्धति से पढे लिखे हिन्दुस्तानियों के मन बहलावे के लिये ऐक नया अर्ध राजनैतिक संगठन काँग्रेस के नाम से आरम्भ किया था जिस का मुख्य उद्देश्य मामूली पढ लिखे भारतियों को सरकारी तन्त्र का हिस्सा बन कर जन साधारण का प्रतिनिधत्वभ करने से दूर रखना था ताकि वह अपनी राजनैतिक आकाँक्षाओं की पूर्ति अंग्रेजी खिलोनों से कर के संतुष्ट रहैं। अंग्रेजों के संरक्षण में बने इस राजनैतिक संगठन से उन्हें कोई भय नहीं था। उसी काल में कलकत्ता का ऐक टैगोर (ठाकुर) परिवार अंग्रेजों के काफी नजदीक हुआ करता था जिस के बहुत से लोग ईस्ट इंडिया कंपनी के लिए काम किया करते थे। उन में मुख्य थे अवनींद्र नाथ टैगोर तथा उन के छोटे भाई  रविन्द्र नाथ टैगोर।

कलकत्ता के बदले दिल्ली को राजधानी बनाने के कई राजनैतिक कारण थे परन्तु जब 1911 में दिल्ली को राजधानी बनाया गया तो इंग्लैंड का राजा जार्ज पंचम अपनी कालोनी को देखने के लिये हिन्दुस्तान आया था। उन दिनों पंडित मोतीलाल नेहरू इलाहबाद के प्रमुख वकील थे और अंग्रेजी रंग ढंग से ही रहते थे। उन्हे जार्ज पंचम के लिये गठित स्वागत स्मिति में चुना गया था। 

मोतीलाल नेहरू ने रविंद्रनाथ टैगोर से जार्ज पंचम के स्वागत के लिये ऐक गीत लिखवाया था जिस का उद्देश विदेशी सम्राट (ऐम्परर जोर्ज पंचम) के प्रति हिन्दुस्तानियों को अपनी कृतज्ञ्यता व्यक्त करते हुये उस के आलौकिक गुणों का बखान कर के अपने शासक के प्रति आभार प्रगट कर के उस का स्वागत करना था। अतः रविन्द्र नाथ टैगोर ने जो गीत लिखा उसके बोल थे “जन गण मन अधिनायक जय हे भारत भाग्य विधाता”। उस गीत के पाँच पद्य थे जिन में अंग्रेजी सम्राट जोर्ज पंचम और अंग्रेजी साम्राज्य का गुणगान है। गीत के प्रथम पद्य का अर्थ कुछ इस प्रकार हैः-  

“भारत के नागरिक, भारत की जनता अपने मन से आपको भारत का भाग्य विधाता समझती है और मानती है। हे अधिनायक तुम्ही भारत के भाग्य विधाता हो। तुम्हारी जय हो ! जय हो ! जय हो! तुम्हारे भारत आने से सभी प्रान्त पंजाब, सिंध, गुजरात, मराठा (महाराष्ट्र), द्रविड़ (दक्षिण भारत), उत्कल (उड़ीसा), बंग (बंगाल) तथा विन्ध्य (सेन्ट्रल इडिया का कुछ भाग) हिमाचल (उत्तर के कुछ पहाडी क्षेत्र जैसे शिमला आदि) और यमुना और गंगा नदियों के बीच का भाग – ये सभी हर्षित है, खुश है, प्रसन्न है , तुम्हारा नाम लेकर ही हम जागते है और तुम्हारे नाम का आशीर्वाद चाहते है। तुम्हारी ही हम गाथा गाते है। हे भारत के भाग्य विधाता तुम्हारी जय हो जय हो जय हो। “

दिल्ली का नाम न्यू डेल्ही रखा गया था और सम्राट के स्वागत के लिये ईंडिया गेट बनाया गया था। स्वागत समारोह में “जन गण मन अधिनायक जय है ” गाया गया था जिसे सुन कर ब्रिटिश सम्राट का स्वयं पर गर्वित होना स्वाभाविक था।

यह ऐक उल्लेखनीय तथ्य है कि स्वतन्त्रता संग्राम के समय क्रान्तिकारियों का लोकप्रिय गान बंकिमचन्द्र चैटरजी रचित वन्दे मात्रम था जो उन के क्रान्तिकारी उपन्यास आनन्द मठ का गान है। काँग्रेस में कालान्तर ऐक गर्म दल और ऐक नर्म दल के नाम के दो गुट बन चुके थे। गर्मदल के प्रमुख नेता बाल गंगाधर तिलक थे जिन के सहयोगियों का रवैया अंग्रेजों के प्रति कठोर था। उन्हें अंग्रेजी यातनायें भी सहनी पडीं थी। वह वन्दे मात्रम का गान करते थे। उन की तुलना में  ऐक नर्म दल भी था जिस के जाने पहचाने नेता गोपाल कृष्ण गोखले और मोती लाल नेहरू आदि थे।  इसी नर्म दल के कुछ गिनेचुने काँग्रेसी वन्देमात्रम के बदले स्वागत गीत को गाना सुरक्षित समझ कर गाते रहते थे।

बटवारे के पश्चात संविधान सभा की बहस चली। संविधान सभा के 319 में से 318 सांसद ऐसे थे जिन्होंने बंकिम बाबु द्वारा लिखित वन्देमातरम को राष्ट्र गान स्वीकार करने पर सहमति जताई। लेकिन जवाहरलाल नेहरू के मन में कुछ और ही था और उन्हों ने इसमें भी राजनीति कर डाली।

उन्हों ने पहले तो अपने अभिभावक मोहनदास कर्मचन्द गांधी को राष्ट्रपिता मनोनीत किया। फिर नेहरु जी को चिन्ता लगी कि अंग्रेजों के राष्ट्रगीत “लांग लिव दि किंग” की तरह का ही एक राष्ट्रगान भारत के लिये भी होना चाहिये। बस नेहरू जी ने वन्दे मात्रम के बदले बिना जनता की सहमति लिये स्वागत गीत ‘जन गण मन अधिनायक जय है ’ को राष्ट्रगीत घोषित करवा दिया। अपने आप को धर्म निर्पेक्ष प्रचारित करने के लिये नेहरू जी ने मुसलमानों की नाराज़गी का बहाना तराशा और फिर उसे काँग्रेसियों के माध्यम से फैलाया।

दोनो गीतों में अन्तर यह है कि जहाँ वन्देमात्रम् स्वतन्त्रता संग्राम में स्वतन्त्रता सैनानियों को प्रेरित करता रहा था वहीं ‘जन गण मन’ मौलिक तौर पर ऐक स्वाग्त गीत था। इस गान में केवल उन्हीं प्रदेशों के नाम है जो सन् 1911 में इंगलैन्ड के सम्राट के ग़ुलाम थे। आज़ादी के इकसठ वर्ष बाद भी इस राष्ट्रगान का अर्थ कितने भारतीय समझते हैं यह आप स्वयं अपने ही दिल से पूछ लीजिये।

नेहरु जी ने वन्दे मात्रम को इस बहाने से भी अस्वीकृत किया था कि उस की धुन मिलिट्री बैंड  की मार्चिंग बीट (लय) पर नहीं बजायी जा सकती। उन के उस कथन को  ऐक मुस्लिम, परन्तु सच्चे धर्म निर्पेक्ष महान संगीतकार नौशाद ने नेहरु के जीवन काल में ही गल्त साबित कर दिखाया था। फिल्म लीडर के क्रेडिट टाईटल्स में वन्दे मात्रम की धुन नौशाद साहब ने मार्चिंग बीट पर ही आधारित करी थी जिस में प्रथम पद गाने के पश्चात आरकेस्ट्रा वही संगीत बजाता रहता है।

बटवारे के छः दशक बाद भी भारत में रहने वाले मुस्लिम वन्देमात्रम को गाने में आपत्ति करते हैं और कांग्रेस की सरकार वोटबैंक राजनीति के कारण इस क्रान्तियुग के प्रेरणादायक राष्ट्रगान को उचित सम्मान नहीं दिलवा पाई है। हम बिना अर्थ समझे जन गण मन को गाते चले जा रहै हैं जो राष्ट्र भावनाओं का प्रगटी करण नहीं करता।

हिन्दू भावनाओं की अनदेखी तो काँग्रेस हमेशा करती ही रही है परन्तु सोचने की बात है अगर मुस्लिम कट्टरवादियों की तरह हिन्दू भी स्वागत गीत ‘जन गण मन’ का विरोध करना शुरु कर दे तो क्या होगा?

आज ज़रूरत है भगवान परशुराम की

भगवान परशुराम जयन्ती केवल एक जातीय पर्व बन कर रह गया है क्यों कि सिर्फ ब्राह्मण समाज ही हर वर्ष भगवान परशुराम जी के जन्म – दिवस को औपचारिक रूप से समस्त भारत में मनाता है और फिर अगले वर्ष तक उन्हें भूल भी जाता है। उन के चरित्र का सही मूल्यांकन तथा प्रदर्शन आम जनता और विशेषकर युवा वर्ग के सामने नहीं किया गया है।

भगवान परशुराम ऐसे युग पुरूष हैं जो त्रैता युग (रामायण-काल) से दुआपर युग (महाभारत काल) तक उल्लेखनीय रहे हैं, लेकिन उन को एक महा क्रोधी के रूप में ही प्रस्तुत किया जाता है। अकसर राम लीलाओं में ऐक सनकी किस्म के पात्र के रूप में दर्शक लक्षमण परशुराम संवाद की नोंक झोंक का आनन्द ले लेते हैं। सत्यता यह है कि वालमीकि रचित रामायण में ऐसा कोई दृष्य चर्तित नहीं है, परन्तु गोस्वामि तुलसीदास रचित राम चरित मानस में लक्षमण परशुराम संवाद दिया गया है। लगता है उसी को आधार बना कर नाट्यकारों ने मसालेदार संवाद और जोड दिये होंगे जिस के कारण भगवान परशुराम जैसे प्राकर्मी एवम् सदाचारी युग पुरूष का व्यकि्तत्व केवल ऐक भ्रामित रूप में सिमट कर रह गया।  

कहा जाता है परशुराम जी ने अपने पिता ऋषि जमदग्नि की मृत्यु का बदला लेने के लिये इक्कीस बार पृथ्वी को क्षत्रिय विहीन कर दिया था। परन्तु यदि इस बात को सत्य माना जाय तो फिर रघुकुल के महाराज दशरथ और मिथिला के महाराज जनक कैसे उन के क्रोध से बच गये ? परशुराम जी क्षत्रिय राजकुमार राम के आगे क्यों नत्-मस्तक हो गये?

यह भी कहा जाता है कि परशुराम जी ने क्षत्रियों को शस्त्र विद्या ना सिखाने का प्रण भी लिया था जिस के कारण कर्ण को ब्राह्मण बन कर उन से छल कर के ब्रह्मास्त्र प्राप्त करना पड़ा था और भेद खुल जाने पर कर्ण को शाप ग्रस्त भी होना पड़ा था। परन्तु यदि उन्हों ने कोई ऐसा प्रण लिया होता तो वह क्षत्रिय महारथी भीष्म को अपना शिष्य स्वीकार कर के शस्त्र विद्या कभी ना सिखाते।

वास्तव में परशुराम जी ने पथ भ्रष्ट शासक वर्ग के अन्याय और दुष्चरित्र का दमन किया और कुछ क्षत्रियों को उन के अधर्म और अत्याचार के कारण दँडित किया था। वह क्रोधी नहीं थे, अपितु संवेदनशील हो कर उन्हों ने अम्बालिका के साथ हुये अन्याय का प्रतिकार लेने के लिये भीष्म पितामाह जैसे महारथी से युध भी किया था। उन्हों ने ही सर्वप्रथम संत-सिपाही का कीर्तिमान स्थापित किया। बाद में अंग्रेज़ी साहित्य में भी इसाई धर्म की परम्पराओं और इसाई अबलाओं की रक्षा के लिये नाईट्स उल्लेखनीय पात्रों के रूप में चर्चित हुये। सिख गुरू जनों ने भी पीरी और मीरी की परम्परा अपनायी।

भ्रान्तिवश आज केवल जन्म के आधार पर ही जातीय वर्गीकरण किया जाता है और कर्म तथा शैक्षिक योग्यता को अनदेखा कर दिया जाता है। केवल जन्म के आधार पर अपने आप को ब्राह्मण कहने वालों में से कई व्यक्ति दुराचर्ण भी करते हैं, शैक्षिक योग्यता से ब्राह्मण कहलाने वाले दुष्कर्म होते देख कर उसे अनदेखा कर देने में ही अपनी सुरक्षा और भलाई समझते हैं। क्या इस प्रकार के ब्राह्मणों को भगवान परशुराम का वंशज कहलाना शोभा देता है? अतः आज के संदर्भ में शिक्षत वर्ग के लोगों को अपने सामाजिक उत्तरदाइत्व का मूल्यांकन करने की अति अधिक आवशक्ता है।

आवशक्ता है कि सही मायनों में देश के शिक्षित वर्ग के लोग सामाजिक अन्याय, अपराध और पथभ्रष्ट शासक वर्ग के विरुध भगवान परशुराम की दिखाई हुई राह पर चल कर दिखायें। संवेदनशील बनें, सामाजिक बुराईयां देख कर भी निष्क्रिय ना रहें, हताश होने के बजाये क्रियावन्त हो कर उन्हें नष्ट करने के लिये अग्रसर हों। आज भारत को फिर से ज़रूरत है भगवान परशुराम के सच्चे वंशजों की ।

अगर आज के युग में भगवान परशुराम होते तो वह भ्रष्ट नेताओं और काँग्रेस के धर्मनिर्पेक्ष नेताओं का संहार अवशय करते जिन्हों ने देश और धर्म को अपनी आचार हीनता से क्षतिग्रस्त कर छोडा है। आज भारत को स्वामी रामदेव और अन्ना हजारे के साथ भगवान परशुराम की भी सख्त ज़रूरत है।

Hindus being treated as non-entities in India

Heaping insult on Hindus in India is getting limitless. Even persons of no political significance like Anna Hazare have reservations on publicly accepting support from Hindu outfits on the secular issues like control over black money and corruption. Hindus and their organizations are being viewed as untouchable. Hindus too have their rights, respect and voice in India as much as the minorities have. They cannot be sidelined for the political career of individuals or parties.

Coalition governance has led to non-governance in the country for Congress as well as BJP.  It is still fresh that most of the time Vajpayee’s government remained busy in keeping its allies together through ministerial berths, revoking professed policies or deferring several much-needed actions that were necessary otherwise much-needed in the national interest. Finally it was just one vote that led to the collapse of the government thrusting expenses of midterm poll on the country.

Same is the story of Congress. UPA government was also frequently impeded by left parties. During last days its survival depended even on MPs who had been convicted by courts and on those who often sympathize with terrorists from abroad. Manmohan Singh has also stated that he had compulsions of Coalition Dharma to ignore ongoing corruption. There is stark reality that coalition partners in Congress as well as with BJP are person or families oriented and are harming the country. The Cash for Vote scam will further embarrass the party leadership.

Sooner Congress will be deserted by its allies who may regroup as third or fourth front. Hopefully voters will see through the opportunist game of discredited politicians and reject them at polls. The country needs to get rid of political menace of their breed. But it can also be expected that some of those worthless lots will manage to win again and continue to swap sides with Congress and BJP to hop into government for reaping benefits.

While BJP has not learnt from past mistakes, Congress has already chartered her path for the future. It is pro minority party ready to sacrifice Hindus. It is knows that fragmented Hindus will be stupid enough to vote traditionally after sacrifices of Nehru Gandhi families are propagated and minorities will support Congress untidily through appeasement. By and large this strategy is being put to work misusing government machinery openly.

Democracy is turning out to be a costly luxury for the taxpayers. Politics has become the past time of certain families and vested groups who frequently regroup under various pretexts to grab political power. Many of our so-called leaders are the creations of media and sponsored by Mafia.  Most of them are dissidents for some personal grudges and lead self-created factions based upon caste and region.  Switching parties is key to their survival.

The governments formed by BJP alone have been performing well and wherever BJP is in alliance with others stability remains threatened. So far BJP has remained truthfully secular and has not shown any favors to Hindu mindset. They must know that Hindus do have aspirations to promote and preserve their identity and culture.

The alliance partners have no national outlook or interest except to promote their own self at the cost of the main political parties. They switch the alliance for better gains at the opportune time. JD (S), Trinmul Congress and BJD have been the known examples. Same hold good for UPA also.

To appease its minority vote bank, JD (U) flexed muscles on the excuse of Varun Gandhi’s statements and later objected participation of Narendra Modi during poll campaign. They will continue doing the same in future also despite knowing the fact  that JD (U) cannot risk sacrificing its government in Bihar.  Even if RJD, LJSP, SP, Congress or someone else temporarily rescued their government in Bihar, such arrangement would not be lasting. It is certain that JD (U) will not let BJP follow her own nationalist agenda.

Unless NDA allies support uniform civil code and abrogation of Article 370 and are in unison with like issues categorically before the polls, any alliance with them shall be opportunist merely to form a lame government.

The perception that BJP represents the majority community and is committed to  safeguarding nationalistic interests, gets eclipsed when BJP is handicapped to implement her own agenda because of the uncommitted allies. 

Even secular allies like Nitish Kumar, Sharad Yadav, Chautala and Chandrababu Naidu thought that Hindus have no rights in this country and they have to continue pleasing minorities at every cost to gain power.

Minorities are already alienated with BJP due to misguided propaganda. There is no hope that they will ever rely upon BJP once they have been fed on Congress appeasement. It is also certain that ‘allies’ will also alienate BJP from its traditional Hindu vote bank, if BJP failed to respond to Hindu sentiment.

Thus BJP must sincerely and openly reiterate her total commitment to Hindu Rashtra and better go alone with confidence. Alliances could be temporarily made to defeat Congress and nothing more than that. BJP cannot treat Hindus as non entities in India and take their votes granted without declaring their open and unambiguous commitment on core issues.

Congress is the mother of political Evils

Congress is the mother of all the political evils existing in India.   Congress was founded by one Britisher AO Hume in 1885 to distract Indian masses away from joining any political movement that may go against the colonial Government. Indians were provided with a platform to cough-up their political aspirations about freedom movement reflected through the Revolution of 1857.

The arrangement worked, since newly born Macaulay products of British Educational system found an amusement park to keep them busy with some home rule type lollypop under the supervision of British oriented Congress Presidents. As and when some nationalist leaders with guts like Lokmanya Tilak,  Lala Lajpat Rai, Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, Veer Savarkar emerged and attracted masses with ideas of freedom as their birth right, they were eased out of Congress and  replaced with moderates, of the types of Gopal Krishna Gokhale,  MK Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru, Pattabhai Seetarammaiyya and so on. They could toe the British ideology . Out of those English educated personalities MK Gandhi and Jawaharlal Nehru were more acceptable to British to participate with them on negotiating table.  Finally they got the reward also as they were gifted with the political power of governance in left over of India.

We must not forget that  Gandhi and Nehru had openly supported the British in second world war, which was fought to protect British colonial empire by contributing blood of Indian soldiers and they remained cold throughout towards Indian National Army of Subhash Chandra Bose. After gifting major chunk of India to Muslims as Pakistan, Gandhi and Nehru made them equal partners in the remaining part of India – and now they are preferential citizens of India having first right on country’s resources as per Congress.

Congress party is now really showing its true colors. Under the garb of secularism it is turning out to be just another version of Muslim league, wedded to placating Muslims and Christians whom the British had favored on the eve of  India’s partition and thereafter. Congress is working to divide Hindus and fragment India into smaller states that will be asking for more and more autonomy in years to come. 

Constitutionally Jains, Buddhists and Sikhs are the off-shoots of Hindu religion and had been clubbed together by patriots like Dr Rajendra Prasad and Dr BR Ambedekar while drafting the constitution of India. But through reservations and other political gimmicks, Congress has been continuously creating wedge between Hindus, Jains, Buddhists and Sikhs through appeasement of minorities. These Hindu sects are also referred as minorities purposely.  By extending benefits of reservations to those who converted to Islam and Christianity, Congress leadership has been alluring and abetting conversions out of Hinduism to weaken Hindu unity in the country. Sikhs are also being offered minority benefits on the sly under Manmohan Singh’s government and that is why a dubious debate goes on under the caption Sikhs are not Hindus.  In all sincerity will the Sikh PM Manmohan Singh hand-picked by Congress President Sonia Gandhi to govern India muster courage to open his heart and mind on whether Sikhs are Hindus or otherwise? It is apparant that he would prefer to keep mum for political reasons and allow the controversy to linger on.

Sonia and her clan have to simply wait, hide and smile while the job is being done by spade workers. Rahul’s remarks that there can be a Muslim Prime Minister in India is just to draw Muslim support as a link in the same chain. He stated that his religion was Tiranga – perhaps implying power – as there is no such religion. Sonia has stated that India is not a Hindu country.

It is now for the patriotic and nationalist  Indians to see whether they would allow their home land to be ruined by such clandestine and sinister games. It is a religious obligation upon Hindus in particular to come out and unite against Congress rule and defeat it politically to save their home land, the memories, values and traditions of their ancestors, otherwise the same would be washed away from India in the tide of misplaced secularism. The whole game is nothing but minority appeasement, to strengthen minorities to destroy the left over traces of Hinduism in India.
