ఇదీ జార్జిరెడ్డి నిజస్వరూపం

బూటకపు కధనాలు, అసత్య ప్రచారాలకు పేరుగాంచిన కమ్యూనిస్ట్ ప్రచార యంత్రాంగం ఈసారి తెలంగాణాలో అటువంటి మరో అసత్య ప్రచారానికి తెరతీస్తోంది. జార్జ్ రెడ్డి అనే హింసావాదిని ఒక హీరోగా చిత్రీకరించడానికి ప్రయత్నిస్తోంది.
జార్జిరెడ్డి జీవితం ఇతివృత్తంగా నిర్మించిన చలన చిత్రం త్వరలో విడుదల కానున్న నేపథ్యంలో దానిని ప్రోమోట్ చేసే ప్రయత్నం జరుగుతోంది. ఈ మార్కెటింగ్ ప్రణాళికలో భాగంగా ఇటీవల హన్స్ ఇండియా వంటి పత్రికలతో పాటు సామాజిక మాధ్యమ గ్రూపులలో అతనిని కీర్తిస్తూ వ్యాసాల పరంపర మొదలైంది. కొన్ని వ్యాసాల్లో అతడిని ఏకంగా సమాజోద్ధారకుడుగా అభివర్ణించారు.

ఈ నేపథ్యంలో జార్జిరెడ్డి జీవితంలో మీడియా మనకు చూపని చీకటి కోణాన్ని మీ ముందుంచే ప్రయత్నం ఇది:

ఉస్మానియా యూనివర్సిటీలో జార్జిరెడ్డి ప్రస్థానం:

1969-70 మధ్యకాలంలో అర్జెంటీనా మార్క్సిస్ట్  చే గువేరా అడుగుజాడల్లో నడవాలనుకునే ఒక విద్యార్ధి బృందం ఏర్పడింది. దీనికి జార్జిరెడ్డి నేతృత్వం వహించాడు.

జార్జిరెడ్డి తల్లి కేరళ క్రిష్టియన్, తండ్రి చిత్తూరు ప్రాంతానికి చెందినవాడు. జార్జిరెడ్డి 8 ఏళ్ల వయసున్నప్పుడే అతడి తల్లిదండ్రులు విడిపోవడంతో ఆ కుటుంబ పరిస్థితుల ప్రభావం అతడిపై తీవ్రంగా ఉండేది.

కాలేజీ రోజుల్లో నక్సలిజం ఉద్యమానికి ఆకర్షితుడైన జార్జిరెడ్డి మార్క్సిజం గురించి అధ్యయనం చేశాడు. యూనివర్సిటీలో కొంతమంది విద్యార్థులకు జార్జిరెడ్డి స్వయంగా నకుల్ డస్టర్, కత్తులు, ఇతర పదునైన మారణాయుధాలను ఎలా ఉపయోగించాలో శిక్షణ ఇచ్చాడు. తమ సైద్ధాంతిక మూలాలు బయటపడకుండా ఉండడం కోసం ఈ బృందం కాంగ్రెస్ విద్యార్థి విభాగమైన ఎన్.ఎస్.యు.ఐ తో కలిసి పనిచేయడం ప్రారంభించాడు. ఆవిధంగా కాంగ్రెస్ నాయకుల అండదండలు కూడా పొందగలిగారు. అలా పనిచేస్తూ చే గువేరా హింసాయుత సిద్ధాంతాన్ని విద్యార్థులకు భోధించేవాడు. ఎన్.ఎస్.యు.ఐ వంటి కాంగ్రెస్ అనుబంధ సంస్థల ద్వారా తమ పొత్తును కొనసాగిస్తూ రాజకీయంగా తమ భావజాలాన్ని విస్తరించే ప్రయత్నం ఆరోజుల్లోనే ఉంది.

హింసాయుత నక్సల్ సిద్ధాంతమే స్ఫూర్తిగా:

ఆంధ్రప్రదేశ్ రాష్ట్రం శ్రీకాకుళంలో సాయుధ తిరుగుబాటు జరుగుతున్న సమయమది. 1968 – 72 మధ్య నాలుగు సంవత్సరాల పాటు జరిగిన ఈ హింసాత్మక ఘటనలో 156 మంది ప్రజలను ‘వర్గ శత్రువులు’గా పేర్కొంటూ నక్సలైట్లు తుదముట్టించారు. అది ఆనాటి హింసాత్మకతకు నిదర్శనం. ప్రముఖంగా మహిళలు, పిల్లలు ఈ హింసావాదానికి బలయ్యారు. వందలాది మంది క్షతగాత్రులయ్యారు. మధ్యయుగం నాటి క్రూరాత్మక ఘటనలను తలపించే విధంగా బాధితులు కోర్టుల్లో సాక్ష్యం చెప్పేందుకు కూడా భయపడే వాతావరణం సృష్టించారు. ప్రత్యర్ధులను హత్యచేసి, వారి అవయవాలను ముక్కలుగా కోసి వారి ఇంటికే వేలాడదీసేవారు. తలలను తెగనరికి వెదురు కర్రలకు వేలాడదీసి ఇంటి ఎదుట పాతేవారు. ‘నిందితులు’గా తాము ముద్రవేసినవారిని కుటుంబ సభ్యుల ముందే హింసించి కిరాతకంగా హత్యచేసేవారు. అలా చంపినవారి రక్తంతోనే గోడలపై `విప్లవ’ నినాదాలు రాసేవారు.

జార్జిరెడ్డి – క్రూరమైన హింసా ప్రవృత్తికి ప్రతిరూపం:

“నీ చేతులు వర్గశత్రువు రక్తంతో తడవనంతకాలం నువ్వు నిజమైన కమ్యూనిస్టువి కావు”

–  శ్రీ పిరాట్ల వెంకటేశ్వర్లు రాసిన ‘మావోయిజం’ అనే పుస్తకంలోని ఈ నినాదాన్ని జార్జిరెడ్డి తన బృందంలోని విద్యార్థులను హింసవైపు ప్రేరేపించేందుకు ఎంచుకున్నాడు.
1968 నుండి జార్జిరెడ్డిపై 14 క్రిమినల్ కేసులు నమోదయ్యాయి. 1970లో ఉస్మానియా యూనివర్సిటీ ప్రాంగణంలో ఇద్దరు న్యాయవిద్యార్ధులపై హత్యాప్రయత్నం చేశాడు. అంతకు పూర్వం వరకు ఆంధ్రప్రదేశ్ లోని ఏ యూనివర్సిటీ ప్రాంగణంలోనూ ఇటువంటి హింసాత్మక ఘటన జరగలేదు. ఇది యూనివర్సిటీ విద్యార్థులలోనే కాకుండా దేశవ్యాప్తంగా సంచలనం సృష్టించింది. యూనివర్సిటీ అతడిని బహిష్కరించింది. కానీ కొన్ని వారాల్లోపే కొన్ని ఒత్తిళ్ల కారణంగా జార్జిరెడ్డి బహిష్కరణ నిర్ణయాన్ని యూనివర్సిటీ వెనక్కి తీసుకుంది.

అప్పటికి జార్జిరెడ్డి విద్యార్థి ఎన్నికల్లో గెలిచే అవకాశాలు పుష్కలంగా ఉన్నాయంటూ  ప్రచారం మొదలైంది. కానీ నిజానికి అతను గెలిచే అవకాశం ఏమాత్రం లేదు. 1970లో ఏబీవీపీ హైదరాబాద్, తెలంగాణ ప్రాంతాల విద్యార్థి ఎన్నికల్లో ఘనవిజయాలు సాధించింది. ఉస్మానియా విశ్వవిద్యాలయ సైన్స్ కాలేజీ ఎన్నికల్లో జార్జి రెడ్డి నిలబెట్టిన అభ్యర్ధి ఓటమిపాలయ్యాడు కూడా. దీనితో ఏబీవీపీ పై ప్రతీకారం తీర్చుకోవడంతోపాటు విద్యార్ధులందరికి ఒక `గుణపాఠం’ నేర్పాలని జార్జ్ రెడ్డి నిర్ణయించుకున్నాడు.

ఓయూ ప్రాంగణంలో జార్జిరెడ్డి వీరంగం:

1971లో జార్జిరెడ్డి తన బృందంతో జీపులో తిరుగుతూ విద్యార్థులలో భయాందోళనలు సృష్టించేవాడు. తన ఇష్టం వచ్చినట్టు ప్రవర్తిస్తూ పోస్ట్ గ్రాడ్యుయేషన్ చదువుతున్న ఏబీవీపీ విద్యార్థి సి.హెచ్. నరసింహారెడ్డిని ఓయూ హాస్టల్ నుండి బయటకు లాగి, హాకీ బ్యాట్లు, ఇనుప రాడ్లతో దాడిచేసి తీవ్రంగా గాయపరిచాడు. అప్పటి లా కళాశాల యూనియన్ ప్రెసిడెంట్ సి.హెచ్. విద్యాసాగర్ రావుపై దాడి చేసిన జార్జ్ రెడ్డి బృందం చేసిన దాడిలో దవడ ఎముకలు విరిగి, బాధితుడు తీవ్రంగా గాయపడ్డాడు. మరో ఏబీవీపీ నాయకుడు నారాయణ దాసును ఏకంగా ఇంట్లో నుంచి బయటకు లాగి తీవ్రంగా కొట్టారు. చివరికి చనిపోయాడనుకుని ఒక నిర్మానుష్య ప్రాంతంలో వదిలివేసి పోయారు. అప్పటి ఏబీవీపీ హైదరాబాద్ నేతతో ఎన్. ఇంద్రసేనారెడ్డితో పాటు సూరదాస్ రెడ్డి, మరికొందరు విద్యార్ధులపై కూడా ఇలాంటి దాడే జరిగింది. అప్పటి కాంగ్రెస్ ప్రభుత్వం ఇలాంటి హింసాత్మక ఘటనలను చూసీచూడనట్టు వ్యవహరించింది. దానితో ఏబీవీపీ విద్యార్థులే లక్ష్యంగా జార్జిరెడ్డి హింసాత్మక చర్యలు మరింత పెరిగాయి.

జార్జిరెడ్డి మరణం.. అనంతర పరిణామాలు:
1972 ఏప్రిల్ 14న విశ్వవిద్యాలయ ఇంజనీరింగ్ కళాశాల విద్యార్థి యూనియన్ ఎన్నికలు జరగాల్సి ఉంది. అప్పుడే జార్జిరెడ్డి తన బృందంతో కలిసి ఇంజనీరింగ్ హాస్టల్ మీద దాడిచేశాడు. జార్జిరెడ్డి ఇంజనీరింగ్ కాలేజ్ విద్యార్థి కాదు, ఆ కళాశాల హాస్టల్ కు అతడికి సంబంధం కూడా లేదు. జార్జిరెడ్డి వర్గానికి వ్యతిరేకంగా పోటీచేస్తున్న విద్యార్థి నివసిస్తున్న ఇంజనీరింగ్ కాలేజ్ హాస్టల్లోకి వెళ్లాల్సిన అవసరం అతడికి ఏమొచ్చింది?
ఆ సమయంలో అక్కడ జరిగిన ఘర్షణలో అతను ప్రాణాలు కోల్పోయాడు.

మరుసటి రోజు దినపత్రికలలో ‘ఎన్.ఎస్.యు.ఐ విద్యార్థి నేత జార్జిరెడ్డి మరణం వెనుక ఏబీవీపీ, ఆరెస్సెస్’ అని ఆరోపిస్తూ వార్తలు వచ్చాయి. విచిత్రమేమిటంటే ఏ పత్రికా జార్జిరెడ్డి నేరచరిత్రను కనీసం ప్రస్తావించలేదు. విద్యార్థి రాజకీయాల్లో ఏబీవీపీని పూర్తిగా తుదముట్టించేందుకు ఇదొక అవకాశంగా కాంగ్రెస్ ఈ హత్యను ఉపయోగించుకునే ప్రయత్నం చేసింది.

కాంగ్రెస్ నేత జైపాల్ రెడ్డి ఆధ్వర్యంలో జార్జిరెడ్డి మృతదేహాన్ని ఆరెస్సెస్ ప్రధాన కార్యాలయం ఎదుట ఉంచి, వ్యతిరేక నినాదాలిస్తూ, కార్యాలయ గేట్లు దూకి లోపలికి చొరబడే ప్రయత్నం చేసారు. క్రైస్తవ మతం స్వీకరించిన మాజీ ముఖ్యమంత్రి బ్రహ్మానందరెడ్డి జార్జిరెడ్డి కుటుంబాన్ని పరామర్శించారు. కాంగ్రెస్, సీపీఐ, సీపీఎం పార్టీలకు చెందిన దాదాపు 175 మంది ఎంపీలు అప్పటి ప్రధాని ఇందిరాగాంధీని కలిసి ఆరెస్సెస్ మీద చర్యలు తీసుకోవాల్సిందిగా ఒక మెమోరాండం సమర్పించారు. కానీ అసలు నిజం ప్రభుత్వ ఇంటెలిజెన్స్ విభాగానికి జార్జిరెడ్డి నేర చరిత్ర సుపరిచితమే.

ఏబీవీపీ విద్యార్ధులపై నేరారోపణ – హైకోర్టు క్లీన్ చిట్:

ఈ హత్యకేసులో 9 మంది విద్యార్ధులపై చార్జిషీట్ నమోదైంది. 6 నెలలపాటు జైలులో ఉన్న వీరిని ట్రయిల్ కోర్ట్ నిర్దోషులుగా విడుదల చేసింది. వారి విడుదల రోజు ఎన్.ఎస్.యు.ఐ విద్యార్థులు ఓయూ ప్రాంగణంలో “కోర్టులు కాదు, మేము బహిరంగ తీర్పు చెప్పి శిక్షీస్తాం” అంటూ నినాదాలిచ్చారు. ప్రభుత్వం హైకోర్టులో అప్పీల్ చేసింది. హైకోర్టు కింది కోర్టు తీర్పును సమర్ధించింది. ఈ న్యాయపోరాటంలో ఏబీవీపీ కార్యకర్తలు ఎంతో వేదనకు, కష్టాలకు గురయ్యారు.

ముగింపు:

కేంద్ర హోంశాఖ నివేదిక ప్రకారం..  గత రెండు దశాబ్దాలలో (1998-2018) జార్జిరెడ్డి ఆశయసాధన కోసం పనిచేస్తున్నామని చెప్పుకునే సంస్థలు సాగించిన మారణహోమంలో దాదాపు 12000 మంది ప్రాణాలు కోల్పోయారు. అందులో 8000 మంది సాధారణ పౌరులున్నారు. బీబీసి వార్తా సంస్థ సర్వే ప్రకారం జార్జిరెడ్డి హింసాత్మక సిద్ధాంతానికి బలైన వ్యక్తుల సంఖ్య 6000.

ఇలాంటి నేర చరిత్ర, ద్వేషం, విధ్వంస స్వభావం కలిగిన వ్యక్తులను వీరులుగా, హీరోలుగా కీర్తించే ప్రయత్నాలను సమాజం మేలు కోరుకునేవారు అడ్డుకునే తీరాలి.

The Truth About George Reddy

Communist ecosystem notorious for creating fake narratives, has this time taken up a new project in Telangana – to create the legend of a fake hero: George Reddy.

A movie eulogizing  him will be released shortly and as a precursor marketing exercise, a series of articles have started appearing in some dailies like Hans India & some social media platforms.  Some of the articles have gone as far as presenting him as a messiah.

This piece will attempt to bring to fore that side of his life which is being hidden from people.

Emergence of George Reddy in Osmania University : :

In 1969-70, a small group eulogizing Argentine Marxist revolutionary Che Guevara emerged in Osmania University under George Reddy.

George came from a troubled childhood. His mother was a Christian from Kerala and father belonged to Chittoor district. They separated when George was eight years old.

During his college days , he was inspired by the emerging Naxalite movement in Naxalbari and started reading Marxism. George indoctrinated a handful of students with Che’s ideology and gave them training in using weapon such as knuckle-dusters, blades and knives. They camouflaged their political ideology by associating themselves with NSUI, the student wing of Congress and direct patronage from Congress leaders.. He used to release pamphlets under the name ‘PDS’. This acronym was later used to form the PDSU or the Progressive Democratic Students Union.

George Reddy’s emergence coincided with rise of Naxal Terror:

This development coincided with the armed uprising in distant Srikakulam district of Andhra Pradesh. That phase of naxal insurgency lasted for four years (1968-72) during which 156 ‘class enemies’ were eliminated by naxals.  This innocuous figure was no indicator of the terror let loose by them. A large number of people including women and children were mercilessly  thrashed. Hundreds had lost limbs. To frighten the common people and to prevent them from giving evidence in courts, the armed squads exhibited medieval barbarism. They used to chop body into pieces in front of wailing family members after killing an opponent. They used to severe the head of their target and hang it to a bamboo pole in the very courtyard of the victim’s house. In some instances, the chopped heads of the victims were hung to the doors and rafters. A number of opponents were tortured to death before dazed and wailing near and dear ones. They used to dip their hands in the blood of the victims and used their blood as ink to scribble slogans on the walls.

George Reddy : A votary of barbaric violence 

George Reddy was also cast in the same mould.  In his book ‘Maoism’ Sri Piratla Venkateshwalu , wrote that George used to instigate the new recruits with the slogan

You are not a true communist, until your hands are not soaked in the blood of the class enemy ” 

There were 14 criminal cases against him since 1968.  In 1970, he stabbed two students of Law College in the Osmania University campus. Neither Osmania University nor any other educational institution in Andhra Pradesh earlier witnessed such intimidating violence. The violence shook not only the students and academics circles but had reverberations across the state. The University Syndicate rusticated him. However, the Vice-Chancellor had to revoke the rustication within few weeks due to pressure exerted by some fellow-travellers.

It is now being propagated that George Reddy was winning elections in OU. The truth, however, is otherwise. In 1970, the ABVP won large number of Student Unions in Hyderabad and Telangana. George Reddy’s nominee for Osmania University Science College union lost the election. This made him bitter and he decided to take revenge on ABVP and also teach a lesson to the general students.

Terror on OU campus by George Reddy

George Reddy was actively used by the splinter groups within the Congress party which was going through an internal power struggle. The Communists were in strategic alliance with the Congress.

In August 1971, George and his gang used to roam around in Hyderabad in APCC jeep at freewill and struck terror. They abducted ABVP activist Ch. Narasimha Reddy, a PG student, from his hostel room in the Osmania University Campus and thrashed him severely with hockey sticks and rods. This was followed by an attack on Ch.Vidyasagar Rao, President of Law College Union. His jaw was dislocated and had to be hospitalized for several weeks. The group then picked up another ABVP leader Narayan Das from his residence, beat him severely and abandoned him in a remote location assuming he was dead.

This attack was followed by another attack in which N. Indrasena Reddy, Secretary of Hyderabad ABVP unit, Surdas Reddy  and other activists received serious head injuries. The then Congress Government preferred to turn blind eye to these heinous criminal acts. George Reddy’s murderous attacks on ABVP activists continued unabated. The count of those injured swelled each passing day.

Death of George Reddy & After:

During the campaign for the Student Union elections of OU Engineering College, scheduled in April 1972, George Reddy raided the Engineering Hostel with his armed goons to terrorize the common students.
George neither belonged to the college nor was he resident there. Whereas the candidate who was contesting against George’s group was a resident of the hostel. What business did George have in raiding the Engineering college hostel if the intentions were not hostile ? George Reddy lost his life in that clash.

The postmortem report which was enclosed with the Charge-sheet discloses very interesting facts which the public didn’t know. A knife and a lethal weapon called knuckle- duster was found concealed in George Reddy’s clothes. Knuckle duster is a specially made weapon shaped like a hand with claws and nails. It is worn on the hands and is used to beat, scratch and claw opponents. It also came to light later that George Reddy used this weapon against his opponents in the past too.

The newspapers came out with banner headlines indicting ABVP and RSS for murdering a NSUI leader. Unfortunately, none of the journalists bothered to check the extremist background of George Reddy. A section in the Congress sensed political opportunity in his death and used its might to exploit the incident and tried to crush ABVP. The cartage of the dead body,  led by Congress leader S.Jayapal Reddy, was deliberately halted in front of the State Headquarters of RSS in Hyderabad and inflammatory slogans were raised. Some even tried to jump over the gate.

Former Chief Minister Kasu Brahmanand Reddy, who was also a Christian paid a visit to the family of George Reddy to express his solidarity. Some leaders from the Congress, CPI and CPM submitted a memorandum to Prime Minister Indira Gandhi to take stringent action against the RSS. But the Intelligence Wing of the Police knew what this group was upto.

ABVP activists Charge sheeted, High Court Cleared Them:

The Police charge-sheeted nine people including six ABVP activists. They remained in jail for six months until acquitted by the trial court. On the day of their release, the NSUI took out a procession in the campus shouting objectionable slogans such as: “Not the Courts but we pronounce the judgment and will punish them.” The Government went in appeal to the High Court. But the High Court upheld the lower court’s judgment. The incident and the legal battle put a lot of strain on the ABVP.

End Note : 

As per MHA report, the violence unleashed by the forces that George Reddy represented have claimed the lives of over 12000 people in the last two decades ( 1996 to 2018 ) of which close to 8000 are civilians. The BBC put this number at 6000 in its report. It is in the interest of society that such violent and misguided individuals are not eulogized but presented for what they represent, viz hatred, jealousy &  violence motivated by narcissism. The cloak that they put on must be unmasked.

RSS Sarsanghchalak Mohan ji Bhagwat’s VijayaDashami Address – Yu 5121

Summary of the address by Param Poojaniya Sarsanghchalak Dr. Shri Mohan ji Bhagwat on the occasion of Sri Vijayadasami Utsav Yu 5121 , (Tuesday, October 8, 2019)

(Translation from the original in Hindi) – Content Source : http://www.rss.org ;

(Pictures added additionally )

Respected chief guest, invited guests who specially came here to witness this function, venerable seers, Mananeeya Sanghchalaks, all Mananeeya Adhikaris of the Sangh, mothers, sisters, eminent citizens and beloved Swayamsevak brothers.

The year preceding this Vijayadasami was very special as the 550th Prakash Varsh of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji and the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi. The programmes planned in this connection will continue for some time till their scheduled time-period ends. In the meanwhile, Dattopant Ji Thengadi’s birth centenary year will also start from November 10. However, some important events that had taken place in the past year have made it more memorable to us.

The Lok Sabha election results were declared in the month of May. These elections attracted the attention of the whole world. The timely and systematic conduct of the elections in Bharat, a country of continental proportion brimming with diversity, was the prime cause of attraction for the world. Similarly, was the change in 2014 a mere result of a negative political wave born out of the disenchantment against the previous government, or the people had made up their mind to go in a specific direction: was to be seen in the elections of 2019. The world took note of that also. The people have expressed their firm opinion: democracy is not a new unfamiliar thing that has been imported from outside but it has been ingrained in the national psyche as a result of centuries of tradition and collective experiences and enlightenment gained during the post-independence period; and as a result, the society has resolved to remain in and take forward democracy successfully. This fact came to the attention of all. The society by electing the new government with an increased number of seats has endorsed its past performance and expressed a lot of expectations for the future.

The move of the re-elected regime to nullify Article 370 has once again proved that it has the courage to fulfill those expectations and respect people’s sentiments and wishes in the interest of the country. Removal of Article-370 has been already in the thought of the ruling party. But this time by skillfully garnering the support of other parties in both houses, with strong logic and plea in consonance with public sentiment the work was accomplished, for which the members of the ruling party, including the Prime Minister and Home Minister, and other political parties who upheld the public sentiments in Parliament deserve congratulations. This effort will come to fruition only when justice denied under the influence of Article 370 is restored, injustices occurred are brought to an end. It will happen when our Kashmiri Pandits who were unjustly driven away are brought back and rehabilitated and allowed to remain secure, fearless, patriotic and Hindu. Many a right of residents of Kashmir which were denied to them so far will be restored, and false fears instilled in the minds of brothers of the Valley that there is a threat to their property and jobs due to the nullification of Article 370, will be removed and having done away with those fears, they will be able to perform their duties towards the country’s development with brotherly affinity and concord with the people of the rest of Bharat.

In the month of September, our scientists, with their talent, had caught the attention and earned the praise and sympathy of the scientific community of the entire world when they landed Chandrayaan’s “Vikram” on the hitherto unexplored region, the South Pole of the Moon. Although the mission did not attain full success as expected, achieving so much in the first attempt itself is a feat not accomplished so far by the entire world. Due to this daring mission of our scientists, the world’s admiration for our country’s intellectual genius and scientific prowess and commitment to realise the goals through hard work has increased. The matured intellect and action of the people, an awakened sense of pride in the country and firm commitment of the government along with experience of our scientific expertise— all these pleasant feelings have made the last year memorable forever.

However, this is not the time either to revel in the given pleasant circumstances or become lazy and let down our guard and loose our interest, become inactive, indulge in luxury and selfishness, leaving everything to the government. Our ultimate goal – making Bharat glorious and prosperous – towards which we have started our journey is still far off. The forces, seeking to create hurdles in the path and block the way, have not yet stopped their machination. There are some crises before us, which needed to be overcome. There are some questions, which need to be answered by us. And, there are some problems for which we need to find solutions to tackle them.

As far as crises are concerned, there are always circumstances where there are problems in the life of an individual or the world. Some crises are visible. Some come to the fore later. As long as our body, mind and intellect remain alert, healthy and responsive, the possibility of successfully tackling the crises will also increase. Fortunately, the security capability of our country, preparedness of our armed forces, security policy of our government and the situation of our expertise in international politics– in all these aspects the situation has developed to such a level that we remain alert and confident. The security alertness along our land and maritime borders is better now. However the number of guards and checkposts on land borders, and surveillance along the maritime border, especially on islands, have to be increased. The terrorist violence has declined in the country. The number of terrorists surrendering is also on the rise.

Still, for a human being, there is always a fear of a possible crisis from within as well. The agents that cause many a trouble reside in the body. If the body’s immunity comes down their impact becomes visible, otherwise, there won’t be any hassle.

We all know that, in the past few years, there has been a transformation in the direction of the thought process of Bharat. There are many people in the world and in Bharat as well, who do not want this. A developed Bharat creates fear in the minds of vested interests: such forces will also not want Bharat to be strong and vibrant. Unfortunately, the prevailing state of social unity, equality and harmony in Bharat is not up to the desired level. These forces are seen to be taking advantage of the situation.  thereby creating diverse and conflicting streams in the national mainstream – such efforts are underway. It is essential to be alert in identifying these plots and counter them on intellectual and social planes. Even well-meaning policies, decision or statements coming from persons in the government or administration are used by misinterpretation or distortion, to benefit their nefarious designs by these forces. Alertness is a constant necessity. While all these activities are underway, there is an overt or covert effort to create disaffection towards the civil discipline and law of the land. This has to be countered at all levels.

Nowadays, there have been reports that members of a community in our society have been attacked by another community, making them victims of social violence. Such incidents have not been one-sided. There are reports of incidents happening from both sides and allegations and counter-allegations. It has also come to light that some incidents have been deliberately fabricated while some others have been published in a distorted manner. However, it must be accepted that these tendencies of violence have somehow or the other crossed the limits of the law and order and wreaked havoc by eroding the mutual relations in the society. Neither this tendency is the tradition of our country nor does it fit in the spirit of the Constitution.

Howsoever deep the difference of opinion be, howsoever provocative actions might have taken place, still, we should act by remaining within the limits of Constitution, handing over such cases to the police and reposing faith in the judicial system of the country. This is the duty of the citizens of a free nation. The Sangh has never supported the people who were involved in such incidents and it stands against each and every such incident. Swayamsevaks are working in this direction so that such incidents do not take place. But by branding such incidents by the words like ‘lynching’, denoting the traditions which were alien to Bharat and belong elsewhere, efforts are underway to defame our country and the entire Hindu society and create fear among the so-called minority communities. We have to understand that such a conspiracy is also being hatched. Everyone should keep away from talking in provocative language or indulging in provocative acts. The so-called leaders—who in the name of advocating the interests of a specific community create clash in between the two communities of our society and have made an industry out of their pursuits for self-aggrandisement—should not be patronised. Adequate laws exist in the country to curb such incidents. They must be honestly and strictly implemented.

Different sections of the society should strive to increase goodwill, dialogues and cooperation among themselves. In today’s context, it is absolutely important to work for the goodwill, harmony and cooperation among all sections of society and follow the discipline by keeping ourselves within the limits of Constitution while expressing our ideas or working for the protection of our interests. The Sangh Swayamsevaks have been taking efforts to enhance this type of dialogues and cooperation. Even then, decisions on some matters are required to be taken by the courts. Whatever be the decision, it is the duty of responsible citizens that they should not hurt the mutual goodwill through words or deeds. It is not the responsibility of any one community; it is the responsibility of all. Each one should follow it and start with oneself.

Slowing down of the world economy has left its impacts everywhere. Many countries including Bharat have to suffer the resultant of the ongoing global trade war between the US and China. The government has taken many initiatives to tide over the situation in the last one-and-a-half months. This gives a definite indication of the government’s sensitivity towards people’s interests and its prompt and pro-active attitude. We will definitely come out of this cycle of so called recession. The personalities leading our economy are competent enough.

To strengthen the economy, the government is compelled to take steps such as allowing Foreign Direct Investment and disinvestment of industries. However, while implementing many government schemes and welfare policies at the lower level, more alacrity and efficiency and avoiding unnecessary stringency can set many matters right.

Forgetting the Swadeshi consciousness, while seeking answers to the pressures of the situation, will also lead to loss. Dattopant Thengadi considered ‘Swadeshi’ as an expression of patriotism in day-to-day life. Acharya Vinoba Bhave described it as self-reliance (Swaavalamban) and non-violence (Ahimsa). As per any yardstick, those who have got the capacity to be self-reliant and provide employment for all in the country, keeping themselves secured, can only build and expand the international trade relations and offer a secure and healthy future for the entire humanity. Considering our economic scenario, even if we have to choose any circuitous route, we must overcome the compulsions once and for all by setting a destination and direction based on our own strength.

However, to minimise the impact of other immediate crises and the ups and downs of the world economy on our financial system, we need to go to the basics and ponder. We have to formulate our own economic vision keeping in mind our requirements, profile and condition of our people and our resources and potential to realise our national aspirations. The prevailing world economic thought is unable to answer many questions. Its standards are also incomplete in many ways; this fact has come before several economists of the world. In that situation, we have to take steps to formulate our own economic vision, policy and system that instil in us capacity to create more and more employment with least consumption of energy that is beneficial for the environment, make us self-reliant in every respect, and create and expand trade relations with the world on the basis of our strength and terms.

We are lagging behind in thinking about this ‘Swa’ even decades after attaining Independence, the root cause behind this is the education system, which was contrived during the period of slavery to keep us slaves, and the same is being continued even after attaining freedom. So we have to give a shape to our educational framework also in tune with Bharatiya vision. Evidently, when we study about the countries, which topped in the field of education in the world, we find that the reason of their academic excellence is the attention they have given to the Swa-centred education. We need a relevant, logical, truthful, dutiful education system, based on an approach on the basis of love towards the whole universe and compassionate outlook towards all living beings, which gives comprehensive knowledge and pride about our language (Swa Bhasha), our attire (Swa Bhoosha), and our culture (Swa Sanskriti).  We feel the need for a radical transformation from curriculum to teachers’ training. This cannot be achieved through mere structural changes.

Along with the absence of these components in education, degradation of culture and unethical and immoral behaviour in the society are the reasons behind the two major issues in social life. In a country where women were revered as mothers (matruvadparadareshu), where big wars were waged to protect the self-respect of women that became subject of the great epics Ramayan and Mahabharat, where martyrdoms like jouhar took place to safeguard the chastity, there the spate of incidents which are happening today indicates that our mothers and sisters are not safe and secure both in family and society; this is matter of shame for all us. We have to make our mothers enlightened, self-reliant, and capable of self-protection. The sanctity and decency of our culture is to be instilled in the men’s approach towards women.

We all know, right from childhood this training starts in the family atmosphere. Sheer absence of this is seen in today’s nuclear families. Another frightening symptom of this is the growing level of drug addiction in the new generation. There was a time when even the youth of a culturally rich nation like China were made drug addicts by foreign powers, rendering them soulless. The prevention of the devastating consequences of this social evil will be a very difficult task unless our families cultivate a strong mentality to abstain from temptation of durgs, incline towards moral life, and keep away from getting allured; thus, avoid these dangers. In this regard, it is imperative that all guardians including the Sangh Swayamsevaks remain alert and active.

Rampant financial and character corruption, which is being experienced in the society, primarily emanates from this cultural degradation. From time to time, in order to control this, laws are being made and examples are set by severely punishing the corrupt persons. Though healthy and clean corrective measures are taken at the top level, the corrupt practices continue to take place at the low level. And, at times, apparently making use of these controlling measures, corruption is growing. In the perplexity of following the stringent laws, honest persons suffer and get entangled in difficulties, and those shameless and defiant who disregard law and morality flourish by circumventing the system. This is not just government’s responsibility. The greed to amass more without deserving, without any or less effort, has crept into our minds in the form of a perversion, is the root cause of corruption. In the social atmosphere, transforming the situation through awakening and setting examples of ideal conduct in households, is an inevitable responsibility for health and order of this country.

Media have a major role in awakening the society and creating a conducive social atmosphere. Coming out of the commercial attitude of churning out mere spicy and sensational contents, if the media join in creating a constructive atmosphere, this endeavour will gain momentum.

Just as the situation in our society underscores the need for us to wake up and think about making the atmosphere healthy, similarly the external environment of the entire world demands a broad initiative of the humanity.  The policy initiative to make the environment healthy is a subject related to the process of ushering in appropriate and inclusive changes in the environmental policies of all nations. However, taking necessary steps towards bringing in minor changes in the day-to-day behaviour of common people is also effective in this direction. The Sangh Swayamsevaks are also doing many such works in this field. To make all their activities more systematic, an endeavour namely ‘Paryavaran Gatividhi’ has started as a social project.

For the last nine decades, the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh has been working for creating ekatmata (unity), sadbhavana (goodwill), sadacharan (good conduct) and sadvyavahar (good behaviour) in the society, and a clear vision and devotion towards the nation. It is quite evident that the service mentality and devotion of Swayamsevaks have created a trust all over the country. However, attempts are being made to create distrust, fear and hostility among sections who have not yet come in contact with the Sangh. The Sangh is organising the Hindu society: a relentless and misconstrued campaign is going on to extrapolate this to mean that it harbours hatred against those sections, especially Muslims and Christians, who do not call themselves Hindu. There is an orchestrated effort to malign the Hindu society and Hindutva through a number of baseless and slanderous allegations. Behind this nefarious design, there is a thought process, which is relentlessly working to keep our society divided and make use of it for its self-interests. This is so clear that only those who deliberately keep their eyes shut don’t grasp it.

The vision and proclamation of the Sangh regarding the identity of the nation, social identity of all of us, and the identity of the country’s nature, are clear, well-thought-of and firm that Bharat is Hindustan, Hindu Rashtra. In the view of the Sangh, the word Hindu is not confined to just those who call themselves Hindus. Those who belong to Bharat, those of who are descendants of Bharatiya ancestors, those who are working for the ultimate glory of the nation and joining hands in enhancing peace by mingling with each other and accepting, respecting and welcoming all diversities; all those Bharatiyas are Hindus. Whatever may be their mode of worship, language, food habits, lifestyle, and native place, those will not make any difference. Strong person and society are fearless. Such strong people, with unblemished character, will not frighten anyone. Only the weak people, due to fear born out of their feeling of insecurity, will try to frighten others. The Sangh is making the whole Hindu society such strong, virtuous and benevolent that it will not fear or frighten anyone, but save the weak and the frightened.

The confusing concept of the word Hindu, the imagination of confining this to the framework of religion has been distracting our intellect right from the time of the British. There is a section of society, which does not accept this word. They use the term Bharatiya for themselves. Some people address the civilisations based on the Bharatiya nature and culture as Indic in English. Those who use alternative words for themselves, out of fear or confusion, and negate the word Hindu, are also acceptable for the Sangh. Words may be different, ways and customs and mode of worship may be different, food habits and lifestyles may be different, nativity may be different, state and language may be different, but we are not considering those sections of society different from each other. Accepting all those as our own, the Sangh work goes on. This feeling of affinity and inclusiveness is the consciousness of the nation. That is Hindutva. The sacred goal of fulfilling the relevant, all-round glory of our ancient nation and preserving as well as enhancing the Dharma Pran nature and culture, is at the core and destination of this affinity.

For the world, Bharat is an absolute necessity. Bharat has to stand on its own strong foundation of nature and culture. So with this clear concept about the nation and its pride in mind, it is necessary to make the feelings of goodwill, good conduct and harmony strong in the entire society. In all these endeavours, the Sangh Swayamsevaks have a significant role to play and will continue to do so. The Sangh Swayamsevaks are active in making the plans useful for this a success. Accepting the challenges of the times, each Swayamsevak has to work for this.

However, this need of the hour will be fulfilled only when we do away with the mentality of leaving the responsibility of this task upon an individual or organisation and become a mute spectator. The task of achieving progress of a nation, finding solutions to the problems of society, seeking redemption of crises: all these cannot be outsourced. Someone or the other may take up the task of leading, from time to time, but it is impossible to attain the complete and eternal success unless the enlightened society with a clear vision, selfless and honest effort and impenetrable unity do not volunteer to intervene with strong force.

The Sangh is working to create Karyakartas who are able to build congenial atmosphere for this work. The activities carried out by these Karyakartas in the society and their impact have proved today that this is the right way to make us, our family, our country and our world happy.

This is the appeal to you all, taking into account the requirements of current period, we all should participate in this noble and sacred mission.

युग परिवर्तन की बेला में , हम सब मिलकर साथ चले 

देश धर्म की रक्षा के हित , सहते सब आघात चले 

मिलकर साथ चले, मिलकर साथ चले 

भारत माता की जय .

The Liberation of Hyderabad State from the Nizam

While the rest of Bharat was celebrating Independence on 15th of August, 1947, Hyderabad state ( current Telangana, parts of Maharashtra & Karnataka ) under the Nizam was witnessing a different scenario: those who tried to celebrate were being caned, fired upon and arrested by Nizam’s Police. Razakaars (private militia of Nizam) were attacking the people and the Indian National Flag was being torn apart. It was amply evident that the rulers of the erstwhile Hyderabad state and their cohorts, were not inclined to celebrate Indian Freedom. The reason is not difficult to fathom: Nizam and his ilk neither considered themselves Bharatiyas nor wanted to be so.

In his book Pilgrimage to Freedom, Dr. KM Munshi, India’s Agent General in Hyderabad before the Police Action in Hyderabad, had written that the Nizam of Hyderabad had set his heart on becoming a third Dominion of the British Commonwealth. When Nizam saw that Clause 7 of the Indian Independence Bill did not permit the grant of Dominion Status to an Indian State, he had lamented against the “way in which my state is being abandoned by its old ally, the British Government, and the ties which have bound me in loyal devotion to the King Emperor are being severed.”

Some of the ‘hallmarks’ of Nizam’s regime were suppression of Bharatiya Culture and followers of Sanatana Dharma, victimization of Indian Nationalists, banning symbols of Indian civilization, forced conversions, promotion of Urdu at the cost of local languages like Telugu, Kannada and Marathi and above all, elimination of vocal voices against the Islamist tyranny through rape and day light assassinations.
 
In addition to the Islamist zealots Razakaars, the Communists were also a menace. In his book The Story of Integration of Indian States, author VP Menon writes the following regarding the Communists in the erstwhile state:
“…people went to the extent of saying that the Razakars ruled by day, while the Communists ruled by night…subsequently the Communists allied themselves with the Razakars who, for a time, had become the virtual masters of Hyderabad…the Razakars and the Communists were truly an ill-assorted pair, for whereas the former wanted to establish a Muslim oligarchy in the State, the latter’s purpose was to exploit the turmoil and confusion so that they could take possession of the State and ultimately spread their tentacles to the rest of India”
 
All efforts of GoI bore no fruit and Hyderabad State continued to dodge efforts aimed to bring it into the Indian Union. Nizam’s government started divesting itself of its Indian securities, banning the Indian currency, halting the export of precious metals and ground nuts, organising illegal gun-running from Pakistan, and inviting new recruits to its army and to its private Militia – the Razakaars.
 
These developments alarmed the then Home Minister Sardar Patel who had famously described an independent Hyderabad as “an ulcer in the heart of India which needed to be removed surgically.”
These events culminated in Sardar Patel instructing and authorizing Indian Army to execute Operation Polo – the code name for a brief 5-day Police Action which liberated Hyderabad from the clutches of Nizam. It commenced on 13th of September 1948 and ended swiftly on 17th of September, 1948 with the surrender of Nizam and the liberation of the erstwhile Hyderabad State. #HyderabadLiberationDay
