Swami Aseemanand: The travesty of UPA justice (Organiser,11.12.11); With reference to your editorial on the plight of Swami Aseemananda, I have been writing strong letters to the media condemning the UPA government’s deliberate foisting of cases on the Hindus, especially sanyasis, just to please the Congress vote-banks. I have been wanting to know why Hindu organisations and the BJP have not organised large-scale protests against the false cases, the misuse of the CBI, NIA, ATS etc., and against the cruelty inflicted on these saints. Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur, Lt Col Purohit, and a Shankaracharya of Kashmir have been languishing in jail and suffering immense pain and injustice for a long time. There is no way any of them can be connected to any terrorist cases. I am sure it is Muslim terrorists who are involved in the Malegaon blasts. As far as Swami Aseemananda is concerned, he was an impediment to the conversion activities of the Christian missionaries in Dangs. So they got the Congress to foist the case on him and Lt Col Purohit in the Samjhauta Express blast case, even though US had given clear indications of the involvement of Pak-based terrorist organisations in that blast. Why were no attempts made by Hindu organisations to save these innocents? That national security has become irrelevant to the Congress at the alter of vote-bank politics, is a matter of grave concern. Our motherland is not safe in the hands of the Congress, led by the wily firangi memsaab. The sins of the Congress are too many to enlist. I also heard a news that the released Muslims are demanding compensation from the government. How can we ever forgive the anti-national Congress for betraying the nation in so many heinous ways?

A letter from Australia (Organiser, 18.12.2011) Shri Amarjit Singh Goraya from Australia (See Reader’s Forum, Organiser, 18.12.2011) has advised me that “while writing about Gandhiji he must think of following facts:- that Gandhi was really a marvellous person, a saint, and people all over the world believe that Mahatma Gandhi was the greatest Hindu of 20th century.” If that is the fact, it is all the more necessary to educate the whole world, that there has never been such a cruel, treacherous, and mean person as Gandhi was, in the entire history of the world. I would quote only one example to prove my contention. Hindus and Sikhs in areas which now forms Pakistan, were all followers of Gandhi, and used to shout “Long live Gandhi” (Mahatma Gandhi ki jai). He had no compassion for them, when at the time of creation of Pakistan during 1947, they were being slaughtered, women and girls being raped, abducted, dishonoured and brutally tortured by Muslim mobs, aided and helped by the Muslim police, Muslim army, Muslim civil administration, and Muslim political leadership in Pakistan. Many Hindu and Sikh women ended their lives by jumping into canals, wells, rivers to save their honour, and in many cases, men took extreme step of killing their own women to save their honour, before dying themselves. (see pages 134-5,136-7, 162-3 Stern Reckoning by Justice GD Khosla, East Punjab High Court). When some Hindu and Sikh refugees from Rawalpindi and Dera Gazi Khan met Gandhi for help, he told them that Pakistan authorities should ensure protection, and repeated his advice that they all should die and not leave their homes, as no special training was needed for dying. (See page 33 Delhi Diary—A collection of speeches by MK Gandhi from 10.9.1947 to 30.1.1997, Navjivan Publishing House, Ahmedabad). Due to this treachery, ten lakh Hindus and Sikhs were butchered in West Pakistan and more than one lakh women and girls abducted, but not even once this greatest Hindu condemned it, what to talk of any help. Gandhi’s biggest gift to India was appeasement of Pakistan, and Muslims even after yielding to them Pakistan as an exclusive home land.His followers faithfully followed him since they found a reliable Muslim vote bank.

Swami Assemanand exposes communal Congress conspiracy (Organiser, 11.12.2011); This is with reference to the front page article ‘Swami Assemanand exposes communal Congress conspiracy’ in your esteemed weekly. It is very shameful for me to know from this article that a citizen of Swami’s status is cruelly harassed to give confessions, that suit UPA to appease Pan-Islamic forces. The real culprits, Muslims are given bail on the grounds of forced, untrue confessions and the revered is severely tortured. Swamiji in his letter to the President has written that, “CBI officials undressed me and inserting a stick in my anus hanged me upside down.” I request the President to give same treatment to all those who are involved in this sin, including Home Minister the worst sinner P Chindambaram. There is no meaning in calling ours as a democracy on one hand and inserting stick in the anus of revered Swamiji and get the required confession to suit the release of real Islamic criminals on the other hand. Shame to P Chidambaram who is a slave of Pan-Islamic forces and his clan NIA, CBI, ATS for this heinous crime against humanity. I also urge all the patriots of India to unite and create a solid Hindu vote bank to liquidate P Chidambaram and his clan. Hope sleeping nation would wake up.

Convert Organiser into magazine form 64th year of publication of one of the oldest weekly is enough for the publishers to discard the old step-up and come out with a magazine form. Even the type, paper and dummy design needs drastic changes if Organiser genuinely wants to compete with other newspapers in the market. This will attract more advertisements and increase the circulation. Even the writings of eminent writers which appear in Organiser will get a better publicity. In fact Organiser should tie-up with like minded Sangh parivar publications in all the states so that the news related to Sangh can be highlighted to national level. BJP needs a boost at media level as only publications like Organiser and Panchajanya can propagate Sangh views.

On what basis Sibal defends Chidambaram Kapil Sibal defends Chidambaram and says he has not acted wrongly in the 2G Spectrum episode. He further asserts that what Chidambaram did was in line with the policies of the earlier Govenment of the NDA. What a ridiculous argument is this? New Governments takeover with their new policies and agendas. They often take steps to eradicate the “wrong-doings” of their predecessors. Kapil Sibal justifies one wrong with the other wrong!

Pakistan Army exploiting minorities According to European Organization of Pakistani Minorities (EOPM), an NGO working for the rights of minorities in Pakistan, Pakistani army is sexually assaulting minority women and using them as sex slaves. EOPM quoting an example of one 23-year old school-teacher Zarina Marri has alleged that army-officials take women from minority communities to torture camps, rape and then use them as sex slaves. EOPM even found that religious minorities in Pakistan are deliberately kept low in census-figures to deny them greater representation. Already Pakistan lists seventh amongst top ten countries notorious to be dangerous for religious minorities. India which has a natural cause of concern towards religious minorities of Pakistan, should co-relate with EOPM in its demand for a special UN session to discuss plight of religious minorities in Pakistan.

Congress and Mayawati in electoral gambit The Congress has embarked upon a dangerous path that can only lead to social conflict. The party’s cynical move to set aside a quote for backward Muslims within the 27 per cent reservations in government jobs and educational institutions meant for the “Other Backward Classes’, is frighteningly myopic and must be thwarted. This is more than an electoral gambit and cannot be wished as a tactical manoeuvre of insignificant consequence. It is a calculated mischief with an eye to the Muslim votes of Uttar Pradesh. The same calculation is reflected in UP Chief Minister Mayawati’s demand that Muslims be given their separate quota in jobs and colleges. The Congress led UPA regime has already injected communalism into the planning process by setting apart funds for ‘special development’ of minority-dominated districts although statistically poverty among Hindus is far more widespread than among Muslims.

Parliament in turmoil Parliamentarians are routinely blamed for corruption, disruption in the Parliament, and content unbecoming representatives of the people. Yet MP’s didn’t think twice about holding the Parliament to ransom on the Jan Lokpal Bill issue. Clearly our parliamentarians cannot live upto people’s expectations. So how can the governance of the country be left in the hands of men and women who do not understand their responsibilities? Anna Hazare’s anti-corruption movement is a reflection of people’s disappointment in their elected rulers.

We need a PM, not a puppet The golden era of Bharat will again return the day Gujarat Chief Minister Shri Narendra Modi takes over as the next PM, We do need a leader with some courage and vision which the UPA government can’t provide. I am sure that India will catch up with super powers in no time if Shri Modi becomes the PM. India has all the potential to grow at double speed if the Congress gets out of the way and Shri Modi is given a chance to lead the country. He is the best suited and the most eligible among present day politicians to be the next Prime Minister. He has been a successful Chief Minister of Gujarat for three terms and has brought unprecedented levels of development in the State. We need a person of such stature and capability as our Prime Minister and not some remote controlled Prime Minister like Manmohan Singh.

Terrorists enjoying life under UPA Although it is correct that the terrorists who are involved in the recent High Court blast in Delhi should be caught at the earliest but I feel that there is no point catching these terrorists. This is so because just like Kasab and Afzal they will also become damads , i.e. son-in-laws of the UPA government and the government will spent crores of rupees on their upkeep, providing them every thing, infact building special cells for them. UPA government which is supposedly committed to end terrorism has done nothing to expedite the execution of Afzal and Kasab and many more which could have deter some of the terror attacks. Nor has it shut rail and road links between India and terror exporting Pakistan.

Nation yet to acknowledge their sacrifice Ten years ago our brave security men prevented terrorists from taking over the Parliament and killing our Parliamentarians. Some of them lost their lives in the process. But the nation is yet to acknowledge their sacrifice. By not hanging Afzal, the chief perpetrator of the attack, we are indirectly encouraging terrorists. The government is spending tax payers money on such VIP criminals. Afzal is guilty by all means and he must be hanged at the earliest.

Net cannot succumb to netas Should Union Minister for Telecommunication Kapil Sibal’s diktat be implemented, the Freedom of Speech and Expression guaranteed under Article 19 of the Indian Constitution would remain only on paper. It appears that the dirty trick department of the UPA is once more becoming active basically to divert the attention of people from FDI in retail sector. The government wants to check the Freedom of Speech and Expression of the people by bringing social media networking sites under censorship on the pretext that they are hosting offensive content that could lead to social discord in the country. This is another kind of emergency. Sibal should very well know that Facebook, Youtube and Twitter are the sites through which the common man can express his views. I personally feel that the social media has an immense power to transform the society, move governments with pro-people policies. They are not infallible but surely have self-correction policies. Sibal’s demand is as bad as censorship.
