(Roots of Red Terror, May 7): Kudos to Organiser for bringing out an exclusive cover story on Red Terror titled ‘Marxists have a blinkered view of history’ by Siddheshwar Shukla Eklavy. The story completely exposes Karl Marx as the root cause of Red Terror. Apart from the content the cover of the issue is very appealing and catchy. It attracts the readers at one glance. The Marxists have damaged the very culture of India and it is high time that the very roots of anti-India, anti-development and anti-democracy Marxist ideology are uprooted. The Red Terrorists are the major hindrance in development of many underdeveloped areas of the country. There is dire need for a surgical strike against Red Terror in the country.

One thing is certain : Except for the set back in the Delhi and Bihar Assembly elections, Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has been a successful vote-harvesting card in practically every poll. The BJP’s victory in the elections to the national capital’s three civic bodies was emphatic, to say the least. The most significant point made by the voters in the capital city is the royal rout of the Congress, and a firm pointer to Aam Aadmi Party chief Arvind Kejriwal being little more than a one – election wonder. The AAP’s diatribe against EVMs is an attempt to forestall the party’s
meltdown. Its only solace is that it is the premier Opposition force in Delhi and Punjab.
(End of the Road for AAP?, May 7);This refers to story titled ‘End of the Road for AAP?’ by Ajay Bhardwaj in Organiser. The BJP’s strategy of beating 10 years of non-performance in the Municipal Corporation of Delhi elections was audacious but it has paid off handsomely. The biggest loser is of course Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. He neglected basic duties in Delhi when indulging in fights of fancy in Punjab and Goa. The tirade against EVMs is wearing thin; no doubt Kejriwal and his mates will now find other reasons to cry foul. Looking within is not an APP quality, blaming others is part of its confrontationist-negative DNA. Blown away even before the season of dust storms has commenced has been the Congress, which has been reduced to a miserable third place.

Bengal is sinking
Events which took place in West Bengal during the last Ram Navami are sufficient proof of Mamata Banerjee’s distaste for Hindu sentiments in her crusade for Muslim appeasement as a vote-bank exercise. Hindus are hurt by these antics of Banerjee to perpetuate violence against Hindu sentiments. It is quite possible that Banerjee’s actions are in retaliation to the ongoing Central Bureau of Investigation probe on scams like the Narada sting operation and the Saradha Chit Fund. Whereas one community has gained in stature in former East Bengal, West Bengal has suffered in numbers due to Muslim fanatics and the terrorists. West Bengal, a land of intellectuals, artists, writers and literate masses, has suffered demographically.

What we need is inclusive growth
It is ironical that the Telangana Legislative Assembly passed the State Reservation Act 2017, to increase reservation up to 62 per cent, exceeding the limit of 50 per cent reservation set for the entire segment of Backward Classes, Scheduled Castes and the Scheduled Tribes. One is amused that the Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao moved the Reservation Bill and sought the Opposition’s support, despite vociferous protests from the BJP. When there are rich and poor people in every sphere how will this proposal which is meant for a particular religion alone (ignoring their financial status) work as a constructive step? In fact what we need is inclusive growth. Hence this decision of the Telangana government will harm the nation in the long run and will also lead to a wrong trend of superseding court orders, as seen in the cases of many issues

Growth in Muslim population
(Growing Jehadi Activities in West Bengal, April 9);This refers to the Akhil Bharatiya Pratinidhi Sabha resolution , March 2017 titled ‘Growing Jehadi Activities in West Bengal’ in Organiser. It is certainly a very serious matter. After reducing Hindus in East Bengal i.e. Bangladesh from about 30 per cent in 1947 to about seven per cent now , Muslims are going ahead to make West Bengal, a Muslim majority State and have already increased their population from about 20 per cent in 1947 to about 30 per cent now. I feel that Hindus in general are not at all manipulative as compared to

How Long Will We Tolerate
(Genetically Barbaric, May 14); Apropos to the article titled ‘Genetically Barbaric’ by Santosh Verma in Organiser. People’s anger and call for teaching Pakistan a lesson following the ruthless killing of Indian soldiers by Pakistani soldiers , is a natural reaction. Our soldiers are being killed by the Pakistani Army and the terrorists almost on a daily basis. It is time for us to move beyond the muhtod jawab diya jayega declaration. Military options , whether it is surgical strikes or intensity conflicts , is the Army’s business, which should be given a free hand to deal with the enemy in a befitting manner. The Union Government must do what is long overdue. Instead of looking towards the US it must bring a resolution in the Parliament , which is sure to be adopted unanimously, and declare Pakistan a terrorist state. The Most Favoured Nation granted to Islamabad must be withdrawn. Commerce , trade , sports , and all other ties must be kept on hold. Revision of Indus Water Treaty must be explored and the status of the Pakistani diplomatic mission in India must be downgraded.
Pave way for construction of Ram Mandir
(Truth I Knew: Truth I Said, April 23); This refers to the front page story of Organiser titled ‘Truth I Knew: Truth I Said’ by K K Mohammed . The issue of Ram Mandir is back in the news following the Supreme Court’s restoring charges of criminal conspiracy against political bigwigs of BJP , namely LK Advani, Dr Murli Manohar Joshi and Uma Bharati in the disputed structure demolition case. The issue of building a Ram Mandir at Ayodhya has been the BJP’s agenda. Be that as it may, the disputed site no longer holds sanctity for any faithful Muslims. Indian Muslims, for that matter, has been liberal enough and stood through trying times, be it post- Godhra or disputed structure demolition. The stake holders to the dispute, more particularly the Babri Masjid Action Committee (BMAC) has been on a denial mode for an amicable solution, despite the Chief Justice volunteering to be the mediator. The fact lies in the brazen truth that they do not represent the general opinion of the Muslim populace. The recent gesture by some Muslim karsevaks (volunteers) coming forward to lend a helping hand to the construction of a Ram Mandir in Ayodhya by carrying a truck load of bricks to Ayodhya is a precursor that Muslims are trying to do away with the radical rhetoric. But this might not go down well with some of the Muslim clerics running the “fatwa” factory.

(DU’s Date with Anti-Nationals, March 5); This refers to the report, ‘DU’s date with anti-nationals’ by Gaurav Jha published in Organiser . The violence which took place in Delhi University on February 22 should be thoroughly probed and the culprits should be exposed and punished. Those who shout for “azadi” of Bastar and Kashmir etc should be asked the following questions: Did Pakistan gave such azadi to East Pakistanis?; Can Pakistan give azadi to Balochis?; Can they demand the azadi of Tibet from China?; Can the azadi seeking Muslims have the azadi to change their faith or at least
becoming atheists or agnostics? It is high time that the anti-nationals are exposed , named and shamed.
