Kochi: RSS Sarsanghachalak Shri Mohan Bhagwat stressed the need on proper grooming of the youth as they are the future of the country. Addressing gathering of college students at Shibir in Kerala he said it is due to the wrong grooming that the youth in Kashmir pelt stone on the police. “Youths should be guided properly, for, they are the future leaders of the whole world. We have to bring them to the right path. They should not only be successful in the life but also be able to lead the meaningful life,” he said. About 1,400 students selected from 37 organisational districts of Kerala participated in the camp held from September 23 to 25. The student swayamsevaks were in the newly introduced uniform of RSS.
Later on the Sarsanghachalak went to Kollam to pay his respects to Mata Amritanandamayi Devi on the occasion of her 63rd birthday celebrations. Addressing the gathering he said Dharma is the basic element for the existence of the whole universe. The observance of kindness, truth, divinity and tapa constitutes the observance of Dharma. Amma got the first three from her tapa and now conveys them to the people. These four qualities seldom find rendezvous in a single individual. Such individuals turn the embodiment of Dharma. Felicitating Amma, Shri Bhagwat said Anma is the treasure of motherly affection.
The Sarsanghachalak also distributed the certificates for the Swachh Bharat Yajna run by the Mutt in the presence of Amma, Governor P Sathasivam, Union Ministers Shri Nithin Gadkari and Shripad Naik, etc. Before coming to Kochi Mohanji was in Thiruvananthapuram where he participated in a Bala Samghik attended by 2400 Bal Swayamsevaks on September 24.
Shri Bhagwat also attended a Sangh Shakha in Thamaram, a village in Kaladi under Thiruvananthapuram. Thamaram, which was once notorious for anti-social activities, is now a peaceful place after the RSS Shakha began there. All 600 families living there are happy now. There are 75 active swayamsevaks there. More than 200 swaymasevaks attended the shakha when Mohanji was there. They performed Suryanamaskar.
RSS Chennai Unit Nagar Karyavah attacked
Chennai: Four unidentified people kept following Shri Narahari, RSS Thiruvallikeni Nagar Karyavah in two vehicles from his residence. Narahari was going to his Office at Thiruvotriyur on October 4. In an uninhabited place near Tondairpet, he was attacked by a rod. Sharply reacting to it, Narahari tried to save himself from the miscreants, but was fractured and injured severely. While he was running to save his life, local police which was patrolling the area came to his rescue and admitted him in hospital. Miscreants ran away immediately. An FIR under section 307 was filed in the local police station. It is to be remembered that some time back, Shri Rajkumar, Bhag Karyavah was similarly attacked in Thiruvallikeni.
The workers belonging to various RSS associated organisations on September 28 staged a protest condemning the continuous attacks and murders of Hindu leaders in the State. Around 1,200 people took part in the protest. The leaders strongly condemned the undemocratic attitude and behaviour of the State Government. It is to be remembered that when a siege protest demo was organised by various outfits in front of RSS Headquarters recently, permission was granted to carry their protest demo. But on September 28 even a loudspeaker was not allowed to address the gathering and slogans were not allowed to raise by the administration.

PCI slams CPM mouthpiece over fake news on RSS
Press Council of India (PCI) slammed Deshabhimani, the Malayalam mouthpiece of CPM, Kerala, for carrying a fake news item to defame the RSS and its Sarsanghachalak Shri Mohan Bhagwat.
The sharp criticism came as a response to the complaint lodged by RSS Kerala Sah Prant Sanghachalak Advocate KK Balaram. The PCI ordered the editor of the newspaper to carry the corrected version of the news.
Deshabhimani on November 21, 2015, carried an extremely malicious news regarding the “Vikas Varg” participated by Shri Mohan Bhagwat on the November 18 and 19. Deshabhimani’s fake news read that Mohanji instructed, it is fights, attacks, clashes and hostility that RSS wants, not peace. It went on its false mongering that Mohanji instructed to attack and demolish the non-Hindu shops established near temples.
The Press Council found that the story filed by Kannur correspondent Satish Gopi was absolutely fake. The story reads that leaders of the Sangh and BJP swindled monies collected to help the families of balidanees (martyrs). This story was carried on January 2, 2016. A story filed from Thiruvananthapuram alleged that Rs 35 lakh missing from the collected money. Deshabhimani failed to submit before the Press Council any
substantial evidence to establish that the news was genuine.
The Press Council further slammed the Deshabhimani for carrying the fake news that the RSS Sarsanghachalak called for fights, attacks, clashes and hostility. They should carry the correction in five columns as they had carried the false news so. A seven column story that “RSS is in total disaster” is also false hence the paper should carry the correction in seven columns.
The enquiry committee chaired by the Press Council Chairman CMK Prasad agreed to the complaint that Deshabhimani’s action was against the basic media ethics. The Council rejected the Deshabhimani’s plea to postpone the case. Council told Deshabhimani to publish the corrections with in two weeks.
Observers opine that the anti-RSS media once again prove that they do not have serious allegations to raise against Sangh hence they move to the last resort, that is, fake and false news and utter lies.
A few years back Deshabhimani had to apologise to the senior BJP leader Advocate PS Sreedharan Pillai when he filed a defamation case for carrying a story maligning second RSS Sarsanghachalak Shri Guruji and the complainant. They lack any
ideological plank to depend on;
therefore, their only way to survive is to go for murder politics and keep on spreading utter lies through their print and electronic media.

Rahul told to appear before court on Nov 5th
Barpeta: The Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi appeared before the Chief Judicial Magistrate of Kamrup in Guwahati on September 29 in the criminal defamation case filed by RSS functionary Anjan Bora on April 28. The CJM court, after investigating different witnesses, asked Rahul Gandhi to appear before the Court. Rahul Gandhi was granted bail by the CJM Court, on a personal bond of Rs 50,000 and the court directed him to appear again on November 5.
The case is regarding Rahul Gandhi's comment on the Barpeta Satra. He was supposed to enter the Satra before taking part in a road show, pre-arranged nearby, but did not do so and participated in the road show directly. Later, on December 15 in New Delhi, he told the mediapersons that RSS women workers prevented him from entering the Satra. He also alleged that the RSS encouraged the local women to prevent him from entering the Satra campus. After Rahul’s comment Shri Anjan Bora filed defamation suit against him. Shri Bora said the comment tarnished the image of both the Barpeta Satra and Assamese Women.
High Court allows RSS Pathsanchalan
Chennai: Every year RSS holds annual pathsanchalan (Route March) during Vijayadashami across the nation. When Tamil Nadu RSS workers approached for local administration for permission to hold the annual pathsanchalan, the administration denied permission citing that the
public tranquility was affected; public and private properties were damaged extensively during the Hindu Munnani activist murder recently. Adding to this, local body elections would be held in the State on October 17 and 19 this month. The RSS
workers moved to the High Court for justice.
After hearing both sides, the Madras High Court allowed the RSS to take out pathsanchalans in the requested 14 places (Coimbatore, Trichy, Pollachi, Mettupalayam, Marthandam, Thackkalai, Madurai, Tenkasi, Tirunelveli, Thoothukudi etc) on November 6 or 13. The High Court brushed aside the state government’s objection that RSS pathsanchalans could not be allowed at a time when the State is scheduled to hold civic polls later this month and while the situation is uncertain after the murder of Sasikumar in Coimbatore. Allowing the plea on October 3, the single judge bench of the High Court said the RSS cadre should follow a proper dress code (full pants) during processions and should not indulge in any unlawful activities during the rally. They should not raise any slogans that would affect the sentiments of others. —VSK Tamil Nadu
