The Akhil Bharatiya Karyakari Mandal is of the considered opinion that the solution for current challenges, emerging before the world lies in pursuing the philosophy of Integral Humanism based on the eternal Bharatiya vision as propounded by Pandit Deendayal Ji Upadhyaya. The basis for this philosophy is to nurture the world with an integral vision, inspired by the sense of universal wellbeing of the living and non-living entities of the world.
Today, the growing economic disparities in the world, environmental imbalance and terrorism have been posing severe challenge to the humanity. The problems of unemployment, poverty, mal-nutrition, along with the growing economic crises in various countries and the hold of multinational companies of few countries over more than two thirds of the global output etc. are grievously worrisome today across the world, due to pursuing unrestrained capitalism and communist ideology of class struggle. Disintegration of families and psychosomatic diseases are increasing at an alarming rate, due to focusing the outlook of life solely on materialistic needs. On account of indiscriminate exploitation of nature the emerging challenges of natural calamities due to rising temperature, continuous rise in sea level, growing air-water-soil pollution, water crisis, degradation of fertile soil and extinction of living species are all worsening. Today, the terrorism inspired by religious fanaticism and extremist political ideologies has taken monstrous proportions. Consequently brutal killings of children, elderly persons and women are increasing relentlessly. The ABKM expresses grave concern towards all these. All these can be eradicated only by pursuing the philosophy of Integral Humanism through mutual coordination inter se, from individual to the entire living world and its ecology, pursuant to the eternal integral thought. Sustained development with peaceful co-existence can only be ensured by eliminating undue competition and conflicts inter se the individuals, communities and nations by having a holistic relationship among the individual, family, society, world, entire living universe and the cosmos.
At the Earth Summit of 1992, organised at Rio De Janeiro by the United Nations Organization, 172 nations had committed themselves to the goals of world peace, sustainable development and environment protection. The world has been continuously drifting away from these ideals. Once again in the Paris Summit of 2015 most of the countries of the world have committed themselves for achieving the goals of controlling rising global temperature. To fulfill the aforesaid ideals, all the nations, as an integral part of the world, need to strive for collective development with restraining consumption, and all the citizens have to behave with an approach of holistic relationship among the family, society and nature, then sustainable harmony in the world can be ensured without struggle and conflict.
This is the centenary year of Pandit Deendayal Ji Upadhyaya and is also the 51st year of his propounding the philosophy of Integral Humanism in light of eternal Bharatiya vision, relevant to present times. Considering this as the most appropriate opportunity for its implementation, the ABKM calls upon all the citizens including Swayamsevaks, the Union and various State Governments, and the thoughtful leaders of the world to put in all possible efforts to ensure coordination among the constituents of the world order, including the nature. For this purpose, appropriate experiments shall have to be conducted along with development of an appropriate model. This would facilitate fulfilment of the aim of blissful life of all living beings across the globe and universal well being.
Jehadi Communal Violence in various States
The RSS strongly condemns the recent spate of brutal communal violence by radical jehadi elements and the inaction of the ruling establishments in the states like West Bengal, Tamil Nadu, and Karnataka and demands urgent action against the perpetrators of this violence and maintain vigil against such radical elements.
In West Bengal, after the recent state elections, the communal violence against Hindus has seen menacing rise which has claimed many lives and many more seriously wounded till now. In many villages, properties owned by Hindus are being damaged, womenfolk molested, temples and idols desecrated and the Hindus are being forced to flee from such areas. In another heinous incident, a dalit minor girl Mou Razak was attacked and killed in her house in South Ganzapara, P.S. Hanskhali, of Nadia district on 10th October. Recently, Hindus were obstructed from erecting the pandals for celebrating Durga puja and in more than a dozen incidents the immersion processions were also attacked. The law enforcement machinery remained only a mute spectator in such incidents even refusing to register FIRs. The government’s blatantly partisan attitude was admonished by Calcutta High Court in unequivocal words like ‘appeasement of minorities’ for forcing an irrational deadline on Durga idols immersion.
Several states in Southern Bharat including Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Karnataka are witnessing similar rise of such Jehadi elements who have unleashed several violent attacks against Hindus and especially Swayamsevaks working in different nationalist organizations.
Tamil Nadu has seen escalation of incidents where scores of workers of RSS, VHP, BJP and Hindu Munnani have been attacked at places like Chennai, Coimbatore, Madurai and Dindigul, in last couple of months. The emboldening of radical elements due to willful neglect of the law enforcement machinery has resulted in killing of sangh workers at some of the above places, destruction of property worth crores of rupees, and atrocities on Hindu womenfolk. The violence unleashed on lady police force at Ambur speaks volumes of the writ of such forces which the administration is finding unable to curb. The call for ‘direct action’ by an important leader of a communal outfit should be seen as a warning of the alarming future scenario. It is all the more appalling that the state machinery is unwilling to act against these elements and succumbing to them and harassing the nationalist forces instead.
In Karnataka during this month, a Sangh swayamsevak was murdered in broad daylight in a busy street of Bengaluru. Karnataka has seen many such incidents and killings of more than four Hindu activists in Mudbidri, Kodagu and Mysuru by Jehadi elements in recent days.
It is to be noted that all these are not isolated localized incidents but appear to be a part of nexus among the radicalized elements in the Southern states whose linkages are seen with the international terrorist organizations like IS as evident from the recent arrests in these states including Kerala and Telangana.
The RSS strongly urges the concerned state governments to punish the culprits after immediate and impartial investigation and remain ever vigilant for peace and harmony in the society.
