“The Congress cut the country into two. The Communists would cut it into ten. The sole aim of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh is to generate forces for the consolidation of the country from Kashmir to Kanya Kumari”, declared Shri Guruji addressing half a lac people in Agra on November 27. “Muslims”, he said, are lying low…in wait for trouble. It is yet too early to base our policies on the assumption of their loyalty.”
Referring to Bharati Christians Shri Guruji said, “I have the greatest regard for Jesus Christ. He was a great man. But Bharati Christians will have to mend their ways. Their subsidised attempt to impose their creed on poor Hindus is repugnant.”
Turning to political parties he said that having given a go-by to nobler concepts of life they were quarrelling for office and patronage. (Page 1)
The Hyderabad Congress list is out. Opponents are happy that the Congress has selected such unworthy men to contest on its ticket. One of the Congress candidates is Shri Ahmed Nuruddin. Nuruddin was the Labour Secretary to the Razakar Government of Laik Ali. A Friend who knows him closely told me that he is the first cousin of Rafi Ahmed Kidwai! All objections were waived aside in view of that consideration.
Said Ranachandra Rao, a founder of the Congress in Hyderabad, that “Congressmen are today looked down uponas ‘Razakars’ in the villages of Hyderabad.” (Page No. 9)
Pakistan is Khakistan
Says A Pak MLA
Tendering his resignation from the Eastern Pakistan Legislative Assembly, Shri Ganendra Chandra Bhattacharya in a letter to East Bengal Governor says. “One who watches the exhibition the East Bengal Legislative Assembly may witness the exhibition of hideous fangs of communalism displayed by a section of Muslim League members, particularly when grievances of the Hindu as such are discussed there. Even in the matter of ordinary legislation, despotic ways of the Government often deny the opportunity of fruitful debate.” In a strong indictment of the Government policy, Sri Bhattacharya says, “The present administration in Pakistan has chosen a policy definitely anti-progressive and detrimental to the interest of the common people in the State. The Pakistan administrative policy is not only anti-democratic, it is undoubtedly anti-Hindu. This naked truth cannot be hidden from even a casual observer by piling heaps of falsehood upon it.”Sri Bhattacharya alleges: “Various measures, including daily tortures of pin-prick nature, unprovoked humiliation, economic pressure, forcible eviction, insecurity of life and property, crime against women, onslaught on culture and religion, physical oppression culminating in mass killing in 1950, have been adopted to drive the Hindus out of Pakistan.
Now a fresh and sinister move is afoot to cut at the root of political existence of Hindus in Pakistan by forcing separate electorate.”Sri Bhattacharya criticizes the foreign policy of Pakistan which, coupled with the policy on the domestic front, would obstruct the path of progress: “As a sevant of the people,” he says, “I consider it my duty to raise a voice against the wrong line of action of the Government, but I cannot make any effective protest as the whole atmosphere is so much surcharged with communalism that fanatical uproars overpower all counsels of reasoning.” In conclusion Shri Bhattacharya expresses the hope that the “young generation in Pakistan will realize the perils of the situation before it is too late to save the country from an impending disaster.”(Page -13)
