Sangh resolutions

Book Reviews by Manju Gupta

RSS Resolves (A Compilation of RSS Resolutions, 1950-2007), pp 374, Rs 100.00

This book is a compilation of resolutions passed by the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) during the period 1950-2007.

The RSS was founded in 1925 but no resolutions were passed before 1950 because the only objective during that period was to achieve independence from foreign rule. It was Dr K.B. Hedgewar who founded the RSS after coming to the conclusion that the resolutions would prove of no avail until the common masses were aroused to seek freedom. For this he felt the need of establishing an organised group of volunteers and thus arose the RSS. A huge gathering of Swayamsevaks gathered at Nagpur on January 31, 1948 to pay their tributes to the Father of the Nation, Mahatma Gandhi, who had been assassinated a day earlier.

?One county, one people, one culture, one nation? has been the basic foundation of the RSS since its inception. On August 15, 1947, when India was partitioned, Guru Golwalkar, the Sarsanghchalak, vehemently opposed it. And, despite getting their own nation, the Muslims were not satisfied and continued to drive out the Hindus from Pakistan. The same continues to happen in Bangladesh to this day, with its government showing no gratitude to India for having achieved freedom for it from West Pakistan. Further, a big chunk of its population is infiltrating into India for the last 50 years, making many districts of Assam and West Bengal Muslim dominated

In Punjab and Jammu & Kashmir, terrorism with the help of American leadership tried to disintegrate the two states and in its resolution on Kashmir in 2002, the RSS supported the demand for reorganisation of Jammu & Kashmir state. The RSS supported national unity and re-establishment of national honour through the Sri Ram Janmabhoomi movement.

It may be noted that the resolutions are initially passed by the Karyakarni Mandal and subsequently placed before the Pratinidhi Sabha for final approval.

Since it would not be very relevant to discuss the earlier resolutions, resolutions passed by the Pratinidhi Sabha in 2006 and 2007 will be discussed in brief. In its Resolution 1 of 2006, the RSS derided the nuclear agreement signed with USA in July 2005 as it restricted India?s nuclear capability, making it perpetually dependent on the USA for all future initiatives.

The Pratinidhi Sabha of RSS passed Resolution 4 of 2007 for preserving the economic interests and sovereignty of the country. It said, ?Capitalism divides society into mutually antagonistic groups, widens the gulf of disparities, and pushes the society into the vortex of class conflicts. Answer to the capitalist model, which is becoming powerful in the guise of globalisation, is not communism, but Integral Humanism.?
