(Organiser, 23.6.2013); This is with reference to the article ‘A live symbol of resurgent Hinduism in the US’ by Shri Hitesh Shankar in Organiser. I was very happy to see that in one of the photographs it is written Bharatiya Hindu Temple. Can’t we in India adopt this culture. In the front page of Organiser it is written ‘The oldest weekly of India.’ I feel it should be changed to ‘The oldest weekly of Bharat’. One of the demands during the freedom struggle was that instead of ‘India that is Bharat’ which is written in the Constitution should be removed and instead only Bharat should be written. Writing any name in other language goes against the linguistic rules and is not a nice practice. But in India this is a very common practice. For example for yog we write yoga, Arvind is written as Aurbindo and Ram is written as Rama. I hope Organiser will adopt the practice of not distorting the pronunciation of names.

A man-made Disaster!(Organiser, 30.6.2013); The recent deluge in Uttarakhand State is deplorable and pathetic,which has costed loss of many lives and huge property. This can be considered as an appropriate lesson to be learnt by us in meddling with the nature. The root cause of this disaster can be attributed to the indiscriminate deforestation,due to mining operation and hydro-electric projects. Though we equally need power and minerals, we are not in a position to regulate our needs and requirements, and keep the nature in balance. We should understand that it is these trees which holds our soil and water together and provides us fodder and food. They also regulate the atmospheric temperature. These trees are the mediators of the earth’s eco-cycle and supports the whole of the earth’s ‘Food-Chain’. When shall we be alert and do the needful? Is it after the whole world is submerged? At leat now every State government in India should make stringent laws and regulations to govern the activities connected with the nature or else a doomsday may not be far away from us.

Message from Goa (Organiser,23.06.13);This is with reference to the article ‘Message from Goa’ published in Organiser. I appreciate the facts and figures presented by writer since they convince the readers that the Congress will face one of it’s worst defeat in the history in the coming polls of 2014. This is also well reflected in three surveys conducted by leading agencies in 2013 (AC Nielson for ABP news, C-voter for Headlines Today and GFK for CNN-IBN).The survey was conducted regarding price rise and corruption. About 35 per cent felt the government is weak and lacks courage to take decisions. Sixteen per cent said the government lacks good and talented leaders and ministers. Ten per cent said government’s arrogance; is one of the reason amongst failure of Congress in upcoming elections.

Rahul leaving in fool’s paradise The UPA-led Congress Party maybe called a so-called secular party, but it is not a good ruling party. The Christians and the Muslims, who have been voting for them since the last 66 years should realise this. The Congress has looted the country and they are still looting it. It is a government full of corruption, scams and scandals. If Rahul Gandhi thinks he is going to become the next Prime Minister of India, he is absolutely wrong. His mom, his sister and he made very big speeches before elections but did not fulfil any of them once they won and came into power. Old man Manmohan Singh should retire from his post. He should go to the Himalayas and spend his old age there with all the money he has accumulated during the last ten years of his primeministership. There at the Himalayas, he can live the life of an ascetic among the sages taking Sonia, Rahul and Priyanka Gandhi along with him.

Write-ups about China in Organiser (Organiser, 2.6.2013); Some write-ups have appeared about China in Organiser. Shri VK Singh in his article titled ‘Knee-bending approach proving suicidal’ writes that “The Indian military leaders, both retired and active, are of the clear opinion that India should pay less attention to Pakistan and more to China.” This maybe correct from military angle as China is a much bigger military power, next only to US. But Pakistan is a bigger threat as compared to military power. Pakistan has twenty crore Muslims living in India to rely upon, who have unshakable sympathy and faith towards Pakistan. Therefore Pakistan has much great capability to do mischief and harass India, and it is already doing it. Above all, the percentage of population of Muslims is fastly and continuously rising in India, and it has already doubled since 1947. Therefore from all considerations, Pakistan and Muslims living in India, put together pose very grave danger to our very existence, more than China. In fact we need not blame China, or Pakistan or Indian Muslims. The real culprits are Gandhi, Nehru and the Congress leaders, who persuaded Muslims to live in truncated India even after yielding for the Muslims a separate homeland of Pakistan, from where practically entire Hindu and Sikh population was liquidated by the Muslims. Now these Muslims living in India, have hijacked our democracy and have formed a very reliable vote-bank for anti-Hindu and anti-national parties like the Congress and its allies. In fact Muslims are now ruling India through Congress and its allies, and the government is existing mainly due to the support of the Muslims. UPA government would always be soft towards China, because China is a fast friend of Pakistan, and both have a common aim of enmity towards India. This suits Muslims living in India, because they can never be faithful to a country inhabited by the Hindus. The only solution to get rid of this situation is complete exchange of population as pleaded by Jinnah and also advised by Dr BR Ambedkar.

In Islam too concept of nationality and religion are inclusive Apropos of your column: Thinking Aloud in Organiser, The column is actually Dr Jay Dubashi’s own monopoly. He rarely brings pieces of his loud thinking. But when he encounters with Islam, the most misunderstood religion or the most persecuted Muslim community, he turns out to be Muslim baiter like Shri Anand Prakash ( Reader’s Forum) who always foments hatred against Muslims and his dislikes towards Islam.

Baseless allegations against RSS The anti-Hindu pseudo-seculars are out again dancing with their blunt swords. To them the RSS has come out of hiding to directly influence politics because it advised Advaniji to withdraw his resignation as chairman of various units of the NDA in the national interest at this juncture. Where is the political interference in this ? They forget that Mahatma Gandhi was not even a four anna member of the Indian National Congress (INC) when the INC acted according to his advise until it rejected his advice against the Partition of the country and Pakistan. The ferocious anti-RSS complex of the pseudo-seculars makes them lose all balance. The RSS is a national organisation working for the social and national good of the country as a whole. Why should it not advise anyone for the sake of the good of the country? Is this not cheap politics preventing the RSS from doing constructive work? If the JD(U) leaves the NDA, the JD(U) will be loser. It won’t have majority in the Bihar Assembly and the government will fall. To form the government it will have to join the Congress Party. The RSS is not interested in this.
