Congress slumps and BJP blossoms (Organiser, 11.3.2012); Dr Jay Dubashi in his article titled ‘Congress slumps and BJP blossoms’ in Organiser has aptly said—“So-called secular people are phony and they do not understand the great Hindu nation.” How can the seculars understand when the puppet PM is manipulated by a foreign lady whose roots are in Italy, born in a different culture, married to an Indian doesn’t give her the ‘Right’ of belonging on depth of understanding the meaning of Bharatiya. Did she ever devote her time and energy or thought or concern for the welfare of the people of Bharat? Her thoughts are limited to how to continue her dynastic rule. Never once did she utter the word Hindu. How can the history of this nation and tradition flow in her veins? She is a foreigner. Her sole aim is to wield political power. But what happened in Uttar Pradesh? Neither her strategy, nor her son’s, daughter’s or son-in-law’s strategy could impress the people who came in hundreds or thousands just to have a glimpse of the family which has just got the Nehru-Gandhi name. The voters had already made up their minds as to whom they should vote. The matriarch and her progeny underestimated the mindset of the people and lo behold an ignominious defeat!. One should at least now realise the quality of her actions and the mind of the foreigner whose uppermost thought is dynastic rule. How long will our deshi PM allow himself to be led by this lady? Dr Jay Dubashi rightly says—“ The Congress is on its way out, along with the dynasty, with its unending line of sons and daughter’s—not to speak of grandsons and granddaughters are on the way out.” This dynasty cannot continue. It is not too late and now is the time to realise that a foreign lady can no longer dictate.What India needs is a leader who can give good governance with a Hindu identity to lead Bharat. And this is possible only though BJP.

Anger with Congress propels BJP victory in MCD polls (Organiser, 29.4.2012); The sensible voters of Delhi have given a solid slap to the Congress by telling the party that the aam aadmi will not tolerate corruption. People are fed up listening to the false promises made by the so-called patriotic Congress leaders. Congress is in a state of shock as the BJP has swept all three segments of the recently trifurcated MCD. This victory is a result of public anger against the Sheila Dixshit government. Though MCD elections are fought on local issues but the results indicate that people are fed up with the Congress at large and want leaders who will work for the betterment and not those who siphon off tax payer’s money. In this elections the Congress policy of dividing the voters on the basis of caste and religion has also failed completely. It appears that the Congress Party is slowly and gradually sinking like the ‘Titanic Ship’.

An appeal to BJP The ruling Congress Party has already got a black spot on their face when they gave half of India to Muslims without any resistance. An example no where seen in the world history. Now they are well prepared to give another half in the coming years. Even now Hindus are being treated as second class citizens in their homeland. Only BJP can save the country form this position. BJP should come forward in the next elections with the following election manifesto: 1. They will construct the Sri Ram Mandir with full grace and honour and shall treat it as a place of national honour. 2. They will stop all subsidies for haj yatra and all other facilities that are given on religious basis to Muslims. An example of such subsidies nowhere seen in the world. 3. They will seriously ban cow slaughter. Presently beef is being sold openly in the market. 4. They will call back all Hindus from Pakistan who want to come and shall give them an Indian nationality. Though their number shall be one to two crores but India having a population 121 crore can easily accommodate another one crore as they had accommodated one crore Bangladeshi coming from East Pakistan. 5. They will give same respect to Vandemataram which they give to National Anthem. And finally they should make it very clear that they will not make the government if they do not get full majority of their own as they are not power hungry. Alliance is done only by those parties which are power hungry. Subramanian Swamy, Narendra Modi, Kalyan Singh, Varun Gandhi, Maneka Gandhi and Uma Bharati should take the command of next elections.

Nationalists must join politics and save India (Organiser, 1.4.2012); This refers to ‘Nationalist must join politics and save India’ by JG Arora in Organiser. The writer has rightly mentioned a large number of wrongs being done by “Perverse Secularism” being followed by the Congress. He is correct to conclude, that “Truncated Bharat should have been declared a Hindu republic”. It is not understood, as to why he concluded at the end, that “Muslims can have rights as Indians” and there should be “no distinction between majority and minority (read Muslims)”. Why we should allow those Muslims, who voted for Pakistan in 1946, but were made to live in truncated Bharat by Gandhi, Nehru and Congress leaders—still stay in Bharat. Here it may be mentioned, that for getting hold the reins of truncated India, Nehru acted as representative of the Hindus in 1947. On the evening of June 3, 1947, Lord Mountbatten publically announced Partition Plan on Radio, declaring Nehru as representative of the Hindus, Jinnah as representative of the Muslims, and Baldev Singh as representative of the Sikhs, accepting it on behalf of their respective communities. Jinnah was truthfully committed to Muslims, but Nehru helped by Gandhi cheated and betrayed the Hindus. This is the root cause of all the problems being faced by us today. Muslim problem is the biggest problem in India, much bigger than all other problems put together. Why are we afraid of saying so.

Ancient traditions have solutions to many modern problems (Organiser, 25.3.2012); This is with reference to Shyam Parande’s article ‘Ancient traditions have solutions to many modern problems’ in Organiser. I would like to say that the real problem started with the advent of Christianity and Islam with their one purpose mission, i.e. to usurp, uproot, annihilate and totally destroy other religions. These two religions have become a ‘curse’ for all the ancient religions including Hinduism. Wherever Christian missionaries went in the guise of service to humanity they totally erased the native’s religion and their culture. What a brutality in the name of ‘God’, shame on such blatant violation of human rights. The very same thing the Islamic powers did. They coined the term ‘Kafirs’, meaning all those persons who didn’t believe in ‘Allah’ and propagated that all Kafirs should be either forcibly converted to Islam or mercilessly killed. Thus the ancient religion and culture of Egyptians and many such others went to oblivion under the barbaric sword of Islam. Christianity says only Jesus saves, so those who don’t believe in Him should be finished with sweet poison of service, love, etc. Why go abroad, even in our own country Christians have literally usurped Hindus and Hinduism in Nagaland, etc. RSS Sarsanghachalak Shri Mohan Bhagwatji is right when he says that it is only through integral view and not compartmentalised view that we can bring about the change in an attitude of a person. When compared to the religions like Islam and Christianity our ancient Hindu religion preaches universal truth like, ‘Live and let live’, ‘Unity in diversity’ and ‘World is one family’, etc. Hinduism is really a religion and culture to be admired and accepted.

UPA following the policy of Mughal rulers It is a fact that the learned historians from Jamia Milia Islamia University, Aligarh Muslim University, Jawaharlal Nehru University as also Marxist intellectuals and sponsored journalists always blame British imperialism for the continuing Hindu-Muslim conflicts in India. According to them, Hindu-Muslim riots are the result of the British policy of ‘Divide & Rule’, employed by the British during their regime. It is also often stated Muslim Sufis are like Hindu religious leaders and mendicants who preached religious tolerance and social peace in the country. But the truth is just the opposite. Muslims are by birth an aggressive clan and wherever they went they divided the society into Muslims and non Muslims and suppressed the non Muslims with the help of sword. The fanatic Muslim rulers also did not permit any Hindu temple to be constructed in any of the sacred pilgrimage centers of the Hindus. Thus, no Hindu temple of any importance was constructed in Delhi during the time of the Muslim rulers, not even by the so-called liberal minded Akbar. And what the Congress is doing—they are just following the policy the Muslims, i.e. to divide the Hindu rashtra to get votes. Infact the Congress is also not showing any respect for the religious sentiments of the Hindus.

Illiberal Mamata West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee must mend her ways if she wants to be seen as a responsible CM by the people of her State. It seems one can’t even laugh in Bengal at the expense of those in power. Currently, she is behaving like a self-absorbed and self-deluded politician with no sense of humour who tends to see illusory conspiracies all around to defame her. Her recent gaffes for forbidding certain dailies from public libraries and arrest of Prof Ambikesh Mahapatra for posting a cartoon on the internet points to inability to carry everyone in the society along in a statesman-like manner. The fiasco over the rail budget, the drama around rape cases in Bengal, the protest against the national anti-terror body proves that Mamata lacks the credentials of a mass leader. Instead of getting involved in trivialities, she must provide effective governance to West Bengal which is what the people have elected her government for with much hope.

Is Mera Bharat really mahan? It is being said that Mera Bharat Mahan will become superpower in the globe by 2020. Basic conception of super power is significant progress, tremendous development in all fields, self-sufficiency, mighty nation which is able to retaliate any external aggression. In ordinary sense we may call it as most advanced nation. But on the other even after lapse of 65 years of Independence half of the India’s population is below poverty line and are deprived of infrastructure and basic amenities such as roti, kapeda or makan i.e. food, clothing and shelter and do not get even one square meal a day. Children die due to starvation and malnutrition, illiteracy and unemployment are major challenges. Further Indian society is divided into hundreds of caste, creed and sects and this point is properly exploited by the politicians.

Need of the hour Rampant cases of battering of baby girls across India have revealed the depths of prejudice triggering such horrible violence. If anything, such terrible crimes are indicative of a deeper malaise plaguing the Indian society, which has remained so viciously patriarchal. What’s more waving is the way modern technology is being used to eliminated the female foetus . It is painfully obvious that deep-rooted antipathy to the girl child is not changing despite the efforts of civil society organistaions and government agencies to create greater awareness and sensitivity about gender equality. Swift and harsh justice in such cases of violence is the need of the hour.
