Fraternity means a sense of common brotherhood of all Indians—if Indians being one people. It is the principle which gives unity and solidarity to social life. It is a difficult thing to achieve…. But we must overcome all these difficulties if we wish to become a nation in reality.”
– Dr Babasaheb B R Ambedkar, on November 25, 1949, Constituent Assembly Debates – VOLUME : XI
The sequence of events and violence subsequent to the Bhima-Koregaon incident in Maharashtra have again unravelled the dangerous designs of the anti-Bharat brigade. The stone-pelting and violent clashes marred an event on January 1, 2018 to mark the 200th anniversary of the Bhima Koregaon Battle near Pune in 1818 between the British Army and the Peshwas. The untowardly incidents, provocations and reactions that followed clearly smack of a plot.
On December 29, 2017, a board emerged at Vadhu that it was the SCs who had carried out the last rites of Chhatrapati Sambhaji Maharaj (Son of Shivaji Maharaj) after he was killed by Mughal emperor Aurangzeb in 1689. This place of Sambhaji Maharaj’s mausoleum is 40 kilometers away from Pune, in the vicinity of Bhima-Koregaon. On January 1, when SC groups started assembling to commemorate the battle, some local miscreants made a pre-planned stone-pelting to thwart the occasion. In a way, it was a localised incident.
Continuing with the British tradition, the Congress and its allies are building a plot all over Bharat on the basis of distorted history and caste divisions. The Bharat Tere Tukde Honge fame Umar Khalid is known for his views on national unity and integrity. He shared the stage with the newly-found divisionist of Gujarat, Jignesh Mewani, who openly aligned with Naxals and accepted funding from the notorious group Popular Front of India (PFI) during his election campaign, spitting venom on caste lines in Pune. The rumour mongering on social media platforms further added the fuel which led to the killing of a youth further triggering protests. The Congress, instead of opposing such sinister plot to divide the society, decided to harvest votes for the future elections by supporting the dangerous design.
This design is not for the rights of depressed or downtrodden but aimed at destabilising Bharat. This is just a ploy for dividing the Hindu society which is gaining consciousness of being a Rashtra as Dr Ambedkar had envisioned. All Government agencies will have to be cautious about this and take pre-emptive actions against the miscreants with the vigilant intelligence input. The community leaders have to be responsible and sensitive towards such instances. The only organisation, that gave a call for harmony and peace to all the groups, was the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), which was unfortunately on radar of everyone. Creating the bonds of brotherhood through incessant social activities is the difficult path that RSS has undertaken and attacking the nationalist organisation by the Congress and its dangerous allies for electoral gains will just harm the social integration.
Recently, Congress was upset for raising questions over the secret meeting of their leadership with the Pakistani envoy and leaders. In October 2017, a report prepared by the Senate of Pakistan titled ‘Policy Guidelines In View of the Latest Situation Developing Between India and Pakistan’ while giving policy guidelines(http://www.senate.gov.pk/uploads/documents/whole /whole07.pdf ) clearly suggest, “India’s own faultlines in their alienated Muslims, Sikhs, Christians and Dalits as well as the growing Maoist insurgency be highlighted… Modi and his RSS ideology of Hindutva should be targeted.” The Congress may gain a few votes by aligning with Jihadists and Naxals but will have to answer many questions for indirectly executing the Pakistani agenda for which Bharat will have to pay the price.
