The demonic midnight raid – As Congress pushes panic button (Organiser, 19.6.2011):
The corrupt, treacherous and brutal Congress party has no right to continue in office after the Jallianwala Bagh like crackdown on innocent, peaceful people at midnight when they were asleep. That more than 100 people were injured among almost a lakh or so of people assembled there, speak volumes of the discipline of Baba Ramdev’s supporters and the indiscipline and thuggery of the RAF, which is under the Home Ministry of P Chidambaram. June 5 should be observed as a black day every year to remind the people of the Congress’ brutalities on innocent peaceful people in the middle of the night at the behest of the party’s firangi leadership! By now the whole world knows what ‘respect’ the arrogant Congress Party has for ‘democratic and constitutional systems’. The fascist and mafia mentality of the Congress leadership, which is corrupt, inept and insensitive to public grievances, is a warning to the voters of this country that they should condemn this dangerous and anti-national party to the wilderness in future elections.I also feel that the crooked Congress chose to let loose the brutal RAF on innocent men,women,children and old people in the middle of the night.Had the Baba’s followers not been bound by the discipline and ahimsa bhaav of Hindu spirituality,they could have easily taken on the 5,000 RAF personnels who attacked them, because the number of Baba’s supporters there numbered almost a lakh people! Had that crowd been Muslim, the Police would not have dared to attack them, because they know that that they will get a bloodbath in turn! So only poor Hindus were targetted by the sadists.

Bootlicking does not pay (Organiser, 29.5.2011):
This refers to ‘Bootlicking does not pay’ by MV Kamath. His views are unbalanced and too much biased against USA. At the same time, he is yearning for peace with Pakistan a natural enemy of the Hindus and India. Shri Kamath also seems to support the view, that “a strong, but wiser Pakistan should be welcomed”. Nothing could be more dangerous than this. If we see our past history and the present events, we can easily conclude that the Muslims including Pakistan are our biggest enemy, and have done unimaginable cruelty to us. They are still continuing it, and treat India, Hindus as their enemy number one. Teachings of Islam would never allow them to be in peace with us. This does not apply to USA and even China. USA and West faithfully watch their national interests. If their national interests have some common factors, we can get their co-operation. At present, Islamic global terror is common for USA and India. It is due to the failure of India’s foreign policy that we have not been able to take advantage of the present situation. The basic reason of the failure of our foreign policy is that, practically all the political parties except the BJP and the Shiv Sena are hungry of Muslim vote bank, and do not mind harming national interest to appease the Muslims including Pakistan—an Islamic nation. For them winning election with the help of Muslim votes is more important than anything else. I feel Shri Kamath is also suffering from weakness for the Muslims and Pakistan like any other follower of Mahatma Gandhi.

Indian Judiciary Traitor Bhimkanta Buragohain political adviser of outlawed United Liberation Front of Assam (ULFA) who was in jail for his anti-national activities and waged war on his own nation has been granted bail by a district session court of Sonitpur. Similarly Bombary High court granted bail to Sahid Khalil Ansari who was in jail since 12 years on the charges of bomb blast occurred in Mumbai on August 28,1997. Main accused in that bomb blast Mohammed Abdul Majid has already been released on bail. On the other hand bail application of staunch nationalist, patriot, former Gujarat Minister of State for Home, Shri Amit Shah’s bail plea who was falsely implicated by the CBI in the Soharabuddin fake encounter case his been rejected by the designated court of the CBI thus extending his judicial custody. See how the treatment (Justice) is being given to tractors as compared to patriots in Mera Bharat Mahan.

In resplendent return Jayalalithaa takes up sweeping reforms(Organiser, 10.7.2011); It’s rightly said, ‘New brooms sweep clean’. Jayalalithaa seems to be on a spree to apparently undo what the DMK government had undertaken. The people have elected Jayalalithaa to power to ameliorate their sufferings and improve their lot. If she is going to use her five-year term for witch-hunting, it will surely backfire on her. Revenge in politics is not new. But, of late, crores are being lost on avenging the opponents rather than using the time and money on development of the State. Jayalalithaa should be prudent and show maturity by developing Tamil Nadu on the lines of Bihar and Gujarat. The people of the State and the country will remember this more rather than the scores settled with the DMK. This is the best way to settle scores and avenge the DMK.

Vote bank is more important than country A Minister of State in the UPA II government has reportedly said that in case of another 26/11 type of attack, it would be impossible for India to exercise self restraint. However, an average Indian knows that the Indian reaction to any future terror attack would never deviate from its ‘time tested’ and most ‘effective’ way of tackling the menace. “A firm resolve to ‘fight’ all acts of extremism by sending a strong protest note to the Pakistani government enclosing a long list of terrorists harboured by the theocratic nation on its soil.” The international community is well aware of the fact that India is not Israel or USA to retaliate with an armed response to the Islamic terrorism. Its ‘secular’ government has to put its own survival in power above that of the national security, come what may, by protecting its committed vote bank.

India: Don’t make it safe for terrorists Our government have incurred Rs 10.67 crore on providing security to the Pakistan injected terrorist, murderer Kasab who since November 2008 is lodged in the high security prison in Arthur Road, Mumbai. Can there be more outrageous act than this on the part of our government. He was seen killing innocent people in Mumbai by millions on TV screens in the country. He has been tried and sentenced. But the sentence has not been carried out just like on his kindred soul Afzal Guru who mounted an attack on the Parliament of India itself in the year 2001. India seems to be the safest place for Pak inspired terrorists waging war on India and their safety is provided by the Government of India itself . Both Kasab and Afzal are already listed in the national population register. Soon enough they may get voter identity card and may be entry into our legislatures.

Stop maligning Baba Ramdev and Sangh The Congress spokes person Abhishek Manu Singhvi at a Press Conference had asked, what was Sangh Parivar doing with Baba Ramdev at the stage, while the latter was observing fast against corruption. What a silly querry is it? It appears the Congress is desperate and cannot do better than this. At Rajghat and other places when the Muslims and other leaders were extending solidarity with Baba Ramdev, the Congress kept its mouth shut. The Congress may be allergic to the Sangh Parivar, but Baba Ramdev’s doors are open to every citizen irrespective of its faith and allegiance for a pious and national cause. Shri Singhvi further asked, who is funding the expenses of Baba Ramdev’s campaign. I think he is not aware of the fact that Baba’s second in commond launched an appeal and people from all walks of life gave donations, that also in cheques and demand drafts. No cash was handled and nothing was done behind the doors or under the table. The entire world watched it live on their TV sets. The Congress should stop maligning Baba and his movements. There are better things to do than embracing professional and ethical bankruptcy!

Amendment to Article 25 of the Constitution Article 25 of the Constitution of India gives all citizens of India the right to profess, practice and propagate religion subject to public order, morality and health. Many articles have been published a number of times by different writers in the Organiser that the word ‘ ‘propagate’ was included after tough opposition by many members of the Constituent Assembly. The Hindus and the Hindu organisations like the VHP should now demand the removal of the word ‘propagate’ from the above Article in the Constitution, based on our experience of 56 years, including the findings of the Niyogi Commission, since the Constitution came into force, to prevent future catastrophe in the form of religious conflicts which could disturb peace and tranquility in the country. In Tamil Nadu you can see Christian propaganda in different TV channels by those who appear to be paid employees to tell something from the Old Testament or New Testament. They function like traitors to our country and culture. We can compare them to the few Indians who worked for the East India Company and helped the British to establish their rule in India.

Incompetent, extra-Constitutional, biased members do a sham job (Organiser, 12.6.2011) ‘Prevention of Communal and Targeted Violence Bill’ drafted by NAC and cleared by its chairperson Sonia Gandhi, takes for granted the Hindus to be provocateurs and perpetrators of violence and hate campaign against the minorities such as Muslims and Christians. If this Bill is passed in the Parliament it will be constitutionally accepted that only Hindus cause riots and minorities like Muslims and Christians can never be held responsible for the same. The majority (Hindus) will always be at the receiving end. It will remain an accepted fact that only Hindus incite and provoke religious hatred and denigrate other religions; and that Muslims and Christians can never do so. If this Bill becomes a law, all those responsible for the burning of 58 karsevaks at Godhra will go scot-free. Any anonymous complainant can file a police case against a Hindu for inciting communal hatred, the police will have to register it as a non-bailable offence. The so-called accused, who would be arrested, would not even have the right to know who the complainant is. The so-called accused Hindu will virtually be presumed to be guilty unless he can prove his innocence. Any Hindu activist who complains against fanatic Christian missionaries converting tribals and other Hindus through inducements and bribes may be sent behind bars; the Christian missionary who openly calls Hindus ‘heathens’ or ‘kafirs’ and tramples upon idols of Hindu gods and goddesses will be forever found innocent by this law. The definition of ‘Hate Propaganda’ is designed to give the Government draconian powers. Sonia Gandhi and her NAC has become an extra constitutional centre of power whose diktat is humbly obeyed even by the Prime Minister of India. Sonia Gandhi and majority of NAC members harbour some sort of hatred towards all aspects of Hinduism.

Gita : Must for everyone About a couple of decades ago I switched on one of the BBC TV channels and saw a fair complexioned gentleman being interviewed. He was narrating that during the Second World War he was studying Sanskrit at Oxford University. He added that since then he had taken to the study of the Gita and he read it daily. He was Bulent Ecevit ex-prime minister of Turkey, a Muslim country. After that he again became the Prime Minister to Turkey. Mahatama Gandhi used to say that the Gita was his mother and whenever he was in difficulty he used to go and sit in her lap. Study of the Gita strengthens the moral and spiritual base of its reader and such a person will certainly desist temptation to fall easy prey to corrupt practices. Opposition to the study of the Gita could stem from those who find the teachings of the Gita creating hurdles in the execution of their nefarious designs, and indulge in corrupt practices.

Congress shows its impatience with people’s power (Organiser, 19.6.2011):
Leader of the Opposition in the Delhi Assembly, Prof VK Malhotra has rightly criticised the indifferent approach of Delhi’s Chief Minister and her Cabinet for not visiting the injured of the Ramlila Ground who are being treated in various city hospitals. Infact she has not uttered a single word of sympathy or in support of hundreds of people who were maltreated in the capital by the police. What to talk of providing medical facilities it has come to light that hospitals are being pressurised to release the injured at the earliest. It is clear that the police action was deliberate and planned attack in which the Delhi government colluded with the Central government in totality.

US is more serious against terrorism:
As compared to other countries it seems that the US is gaining the upperhand in its war against terror. Just a month after it hunted down the world’s most wanted terrorist—Osama—in Pakistan, the US has also killed Osama’s potential successor, Illyas Kashmiri, in a drone attack in Pakistan’s tribal area. Illyas was a key planner of the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks and was wanted by the US, Pakistan and India alike. But it was the US that was successful in hunting down its prey.

Misunderstanding Baba Ramdev:
Why should each word of Baba Ramdev be put to critical scrutiny? Though erudite in traditional sciences like Yoga and Ayurveda, he is not an expert in politics where statements made are different from thoughts withheld. He should be allowed to have a catharses of emotions among his disciples after the undemocratic suppression of his satyagraha movement in Delhi. Baba Ramdev is not a Harvard graduate like our Home Minister and may not be able to convey his ideas in a subtle idiom. The call for Shastra (training in weapons) and Shaastra(learning of scriptures) is as old as the Dashnami Sampradaya of Adi Shankaracharya. Nanga(naked) Sadhus are known for resorting to belligerent methods in the past,though the circumstances were different. The sixth Sikh guru,Guru Hargobind carried the twin swords of Miri and Piri, signifying temporal and spiritual matters respectively. The creation of the Khalsa by Guru Gobind Singh to fight the forces of tyranny at social and political levels had the old ideal of combining religious studies with physical might. Even the nonviolent Mahatma Gandhi once observed : If I were to chose between cowardice and violence I would chose violence.” Baba Ramdev’s call for preparing 1,10,000 young volunteers should be viewed in the context of police brutalities on innocent satyagrahis including women and elderly persons in Delhi. Perhaps by the word Sena Ramdev meant security guards for the protection of his flock. A patriotic soul like him cannot think otherwise. In fact,his crusade against corruption is the result of his intense national feeling about which he speaks in every discourse . Besides, the Hindi word Sena does not always mean an army in the sense we understand it in western parlance. One may recall Indira Gandhi as a child led Baanar Sena against the British,without making use of even a pistol. Is Shiv Sena not Sena in the sense of a distinct group?
