“After the bomb blast in Malegaon a big debate is going on in the country continuously. Several incidents keep on happening everyday. But Sangh work is not carried out on the temporary issues. It is done with a standard objective,? said RSS Sarkaryavah Shri Mohan Bhagwat. He was addressing a Hindu Sammelan at Nizamabad, Andhra Pradesh, on November 23.
He said after the arrest of some people in the connection of Malegaon blast, a strange propaganda is going on using new phraseology like ?Hindu terrorism?. ?Those arrested are being interrogated but the information collected during the probe is being leaked to the media before it is presented to the court. Everyday a new piece of information is being leaked. But it is not the complete information. Deliberately a part of the information is leaked. Never before has such a thing happened. There seems no end to it. Based on news reports coming through newspapers several doubts are also being raised over the Hindu society, Hindu saints, sadhvis and the organisations with same ideological fraternity.
?Hindutva and terrorism are contrary to each other. Who changes into a terrorist? Those who have fear become terrorists. This is in contrast with the basic thought process of Hindutva, because a Hindu looks to the whole world as a family. He considers all in the world his own whatever be the dress, language and belief. Hindu society has been living with dictum Vasudhaivakutumbakam for thousands of years. Several races who were driven away in every possible manner in the world and who did not get shelter in any other country have been living happily amongst Hindus for several centuries. To call such Hindu society a terrorist is highly reprehensible. In a small incident names of a few Hindu youth have been added. So far not even minimum evidence is available linking them to the incident. One Sadhvi was held. She was tortured and treated in an inhuman manner. In the enquiry, no evidence is available to treat her as accused. Some names of swayamsevaks are being heard linking them to Malegaon incident.
?Sangh is a big organisation. Many keep joining it. Those linked with Malegaon incident do not have any contact with Sangh work for days. Some due to their emotional nature have left the Sangh being unable to stay. Sangh itself sent some out. The enquiry so far conducted does not reveal any strong evidence of their involvement. What is the justification in dubbing the Sangh and its associated organisations the terrorist just on some untenable and unreliable information? By conducting activities in open ground, the Sangh is serving the society. Whenever calamities take place, either natural or man made, it is always the Sangh, which first reach the spot and serve the affected. Thus the Sangh members live serving the society as their main motto. All Indians know this. Why such mudslinging on such organisation? If one analyses it becomes clear that behind all this, there is a big conspiracy,? he said.
He further said it looks like a part of the conspiracy to defame the Hindu society to discredit the Sangh-affiliated organisations which are strengthening the society and the nation, and to make allegations on these organisations so as to appease others only for winning elections. To cover up the failures of containing terrorism involved in countrywide destructions, they are coining a new phrase by propagating that Hindus also could become terrorists. On one hand they deliver sermons that terrorism does not have any religion or society but on the other they declare that Hindu terrorism exists. What is the aim behind all this?
They are destroying the Hindu lands. Jagadguru Shankaracharya of Kanchi Swami Jayendra Saraswati was suddenly arrested. Vulgar and uncharitable allegations were levelled against him. Before presenting him before the court, issues came up in the enquiry were publicised through newspapers. Swamiji was defamed. Enquiry was conducted. Court gave a verdict totally acquitting him but nobody said that unsupportive and senseless allegations were made against Swamiji. Now nobody talks of this reminding us of a saying ?thieves shut up themselves where they are?. Similarly they defamed Asaram Bapu with meaningless allegations and adverse publicity. Swami Lakshmanananda was brutally murdered.
Why are such incidents taking place only in our country one after another like a chain of events? They should analyse these matters deeply with an open mind and by wriggling out of fundamentalist outlook. Then, actual reason will be known. What is the main cause for conflicts and problems being faced by India and in fact the whole world? This problem is related to two aspects of life.
People know that Sangh does not do such work and is against violence. People in the government also know this. In the written constitution of the Sangh, it is mentioned that there is no place for those who believe in violence and also for those having faith outside India. This subject is not limited to written constitution only. Since 1925 the swayamsevaks have been following exactly with the same spirit. This is known to all. Knowing it fully well why are they propagating Sangh as terrorist? Irrespective of caste, language, party and religion Sangh serves the needy. In the whole country more than one lakh service projects are being run by swayamsevaks. By spending money and through hard work the swayamsevaks are carrying out these service activities.
Since 1925 the Sangh is working for the good of the country. On this account there is no need for any one to have any doubt. But adverse publicity is going on. The reason behind it is vote politics. During elections, selfish powers become more pronounced. I think this propaganda will continue in one way or the other till the completion of the Lok Sabha elections. Hence, we should not lose patience and should remain calm. Because the truth prevails and the truth is on our side. Hence, we should proceed fearlessly with pure love by gaining strength.
?Sangh work does not belong to Sangh alone. Sangh work is carried out for the good of the country, for the happiness of the world and for protecting humanism. God also renders help to those who are engaged in cultivating human virtues. Without being blown out with the propaganda of the evil forces, let us all participate in the Sangh work with dedication. Then only our desire to see our beloved country Bharat as great, powerful and as world Guru will be fulfilled at the quickest time,? he added.
