Strength and Awareness are the only deterrents – Lessons from Pulwama

Arnold Toynbee writes ‘ What is Pakistan ? it was the first successful step in this 20th century to realize their ( Muslims) 1200 year old dream of complete subjugation of this country.’ 

Inspite of all its internal issues, Pakistan continues to harbour the dream of defeating Bharat & the Hindus. The video of the terrorist who was involved in the suicide attack in Pulwama has been shared extensively over whatsapp. While it is clear that he was the mimic & the voice was someone else’s, the words are important. He wages war on Hindustan the home of whom he calls as Mushriks ( polytheists )  & gaumootra drinking persons which is obviously the Hindus. He also accuses the Muslims who have either befriended the Hindus or are not practising Islam rigorously.

As expected, many TV channels ran debates on the dastardly act of terror. While there were many baying for revenge, there were some saying that talks are the solution and so on….

In the midst of one such discussion, one person who claimed to be a Kargil war veteran said that we must investigate why the local-bred person became a fidayeen. He spoke about politics etc but strangely did not fix the problem on indoctrination. Jehad is a world-wide phenomena but the apologists brush away the core issues of indoctrination of Ayats from the Qu’ raan stating there are bad people and good people and terror has no religion etc… . When it was happening in Bharat, the world ignored . After 9/11, US woke up and now Europe too is awakening to this grave danger.


The sentiment in the entire nation is baying for revenge & the Prime Minister, Sri Narendra Modi  has given an assurance with our support, the strongest action will be taken and that he has given the forces a free hand to do so. Lets hope & pray the government lives up to its promise.

But an important Question is what the common person must do ?

A few To Do’s

  1. Eternal Vigilance is the price of freedom. Awareness is a common responsibility. Awareness about what is being taught in the so-called schools of religion of peace
  2. Question the apologists. There are many who would want to brush away any discussion regarding what causes radicalisation – The points of indoctrination etc. Do Not allow it be brushed away.
  3. Have open discussions on issues concerning the entire nation with friends irrespective of religious affiliations.  After all the national security is paramount and everyone is a stakeholder in it.
  4. Educate family & extended family members who have for long not been exposed to the perils and thoughts of these ideologies camouflaged in the guise of religion.
  5. Read some important books on these subjects – Quranic concept of War, World of Fatwas, Calcutta Quran Petition, Understanding Islam through Hadis, Jehad or the Doctrine of war.
  6. Some people are bound to say that ” My friends are not like that”. ofcourse they are not ! But, they don’t matter because the mobs or fidayeens who attack are not governed by your friend But believe what the version of the mullah / moulvi. Therefore, believe what the so-called “religious teacher” is saying, because that is what matters.
  7. Support the armed forces ( including paramilitary ) by whatever means possible.
  8. Devote a few hours daily to connect to other members in the society esp youth and sensitise them on aspects of national security.
  9. Get into small groups in locality & have Raksha samitis.

…And Next year lets pray that we as a nation still remember 14th February for the sacrifice of these Veer Jawans and not for some fictitious saint who has been marketed by the consumer goods companies !!

Ofcourse the State is there to protect us but a Strong society is a bigger deterrent !

An excerpt from the Quraanic Concept of War by Brig S.K. Mallik of Pakistan 

” Terror is not a means of imposing decision upon the enemy; it is the decision we
wish to impose . . . .” Malik’s divine principal of Islamic warfare may be restated as
“strike terror; never feel terror.” The ultimate objective of this form of warfare “revolves
around the human heart, [the enemies] soul, spirit, and Faith.”56 Terror “can be instilled
only if the opponent’s Faith is destroyed . . . . It is essential in the ultimate analysis, to dislocate [the enemies] Faith.” Those who are firm in their religious conviction are immune
to terror, “a weak Faith offers inroads to terror.” Therefore, as part of preparations for jihad, actions will be oriented on weakening the non-Islamic’s “Faith,” while strengthening the Islamic’s. What that weakening or “dislocation” entails in practice remains
ambiguous. Malik concludes, “Psychological dislocation is temporary; spiritual dislocation is permanent.” The soul of man can only be touched by terror.”

Book Review – Interrogating Macaulay’s Children

Source : Organiser

K Satya Deva Prasad’s Interrogating Macaulay’s Children is a study at exposing the flawed pedagogical system we are still slavish to, even after British Colonial masters have left the shores of Bharat. It is time to undo the historical wrongs of Lord Macaulay by according our ancient wisdom a pride of place in our educational system.
The title of the book is interesting in that it generates a curiosity to know who the children of Macaulay the author refers to are. The book’s cover design is intriguing too. It is a collage of images that represent Bharatiya culture housed inside the India map and images that indicate western interference, making the intent clear. The magnifying glass on a seemingly western thinker tells us that the book is about scrutinizing or studying the western mind closely.

Interrogating Macaulay’s Children, Khandavalli Satya Deva Prasad, Publisher : Centre for Integral Research – SAMVIT KENDRA, Price: Rs 80.00
The author in his Preface makes it clear who the Macaulay’s children are. Macaulay in his famous ‘Minute’ had levelled charges against Hindu knowledge system and Sanskrit language in an attempt to replace the indigenous education system with the English method of schooling and curriculum. As we know, Macaulay was successful in forcing the English education system in India which alienated numerous generations of Indians from their own culture, knowledge systems and skills. The colonial education system still largely intact even after Independence have created a large number of intellectuals who were disrespectful of indigenous knowledge, customs, culture and the same was taught to students in universities and by the media. Such individuals who are inimical to Indian culture and anyone who is influenced by English curriculum are Macaulay’s children.
“Most of our present-day problems and misunderstandings are the direct outcome of our so-called modern educational system, which is heavily loaded with colonial propaganda against Indian knowledge system and culture that generated it over millennia. The compilation also serves to inform those who feel the negative impact of Macaulay education but do not know the positive side of our indigenous system.” writes the author in the preface giving an idea about the content of the book and what we could expect from it. The author hopes to prove Macaulay and those influenced by the English education system wrong by using quotes and references from across the world which prove the wonder that was Bharat.
The book is divided into chapters that focus on areas of ancient Indian expertise. The first chapter, however, details Macaulay’s Minute and his deposition about Indian education at UK parliament. Subsequent chapters have good collection of quotes and references to India by well-known authors, travellers and historians from across the world. Chapters on Indian maritime history and geography give a good account of how ancient Greeks and other civilizations viewed Bharat. Arab and German scholars’ views on Indian science and philosophy is a reminder of the great strides our forefathers had made in all aspects of life.
from very ancient times Our Hindu educational system helped us to stay on top in science, technology, trade, commerce, social harmony, and unity 
Other chapters dedicated to social structure, Indian commerce, medicine have sayings and quotes from several famous persons from various walks of life. These quotes are culled from various sources from across the globe. The author has provided the source of the same in all instances so that the reader can doublecheck the same. This also helps the reader to know more about the quote and also the person who has spoken or written it.
The last chapters give references to the sources of Hindu history and what India can teach us from the perspective of several Westerners. One interesting quote is of R. Montgomery Martin who was a civil servant in the 19th century. In his History of Indian Empire, he writes, “India in the middle of the 18th century resembled a vast battlefield strewn with fragments of ruined states, and affording on every side abundant evidence of a prolonged and severe conflict from which even the victors had emerged irretrievably injured.” With this reference the author has shown that the entire world wanted a share of India, be it the British or the Dutch or the Mughals or Portuguese who wanted to enrich themselves by ravaging India only because it was already abundant in every aspect.
A tribute to Hindus has quotes from well-known authors and leaders on the contribution of Hindus to the world in various spheres and walks of life. This exposes Macaulay’s claim that India was backward or that it needed any interference from the west. As the author himself writes, the aim of the compilation is not to argue to go-back to the olden days but this is an appeal to get informed about the nefarious designs of the introducer of English education in our country. We have to work hard to remove its deleterious effects and place it on a firm indigenous footing, argues the author.
The author states, “These quotations prove that from very ancient times Hindu education system helped the Hindus to stay on top in science, technology, trade, commerce, social harmony and unity.”. Writing about the compilation of quotes, he writes, “This compilation is meant to remind Indians that there is lot of colonial propaganda still lurking in the present day educational curriculum taught in our schools and colleges. It is actually a hangover of the colonial rule which harmed us instead of improving our capabilities. The present education system is not a natural outcome of the native genius, but fraudulently foisted upon the gullible Hindus.”
Overall, ‘Interrogating Macaulay’s Children’ is a good reminder of the intentions and effects of Macaulay’s education. The book also serves as a good source of quotes and references on ancient India. This can also serve as a starting point to explore more about the subject on which the quote was made and the person who is quoted. As a ready reference on quotes on India in various spheres, the book is also a ready reckoner on ‘who said what’ on India. It is a must read if you are interested in how people from across the world viewed India for thousands of years.

Rajju Bhayya – Nuclear Physics Professor who became Sarsanghchalak

Prof. Rajendra Singh (29 January 1922 – 14 July 2003 ), popularly called Rajju Bhaiya, was the fourth Sarsanghchalak of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh between 1994 and 2000.

He worked as a professor and head of the Department of Physics at Allahabad University but left to devote his life  for the Sangh in the mid-1960s. Rajju Bhaiyya was acknowledged as an exceptionally brilliant student by Sir C. V. Raman, the physicist and Nobel Prize-winner, when he was his examiner in M.Sc. He also offered Singh a fellowship for advanced research in nuclear physics.

He joined Allahabad University after majoring in Physics to teach Spectroscopy. He taught at the university for several years, where later he was appointed head of the Physics Department. He was also considered an expert in nuclear physics which was very rare those days in India. He was a very popular teacher of the subject, using simplicity and clear concepts.

With the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh :

Singh was active in the Quit India Movement of 1942 and it was during this time that he came in contact with the RSS. From then onwards the Sangh influenced his life. He resigned from his university post in 1966 and offered full-time services to the RSS as a ‘prant pracharak’ of  Uttar Pradesh, . He was later entrusted with responsibility of  Sar Karyavaha (General Secretary) in the 1980s. In 1994, he was nominated to succeed BalaSahebji  Deoras as Sarsanghchalak.

While in Uttar Pradesh, he worked with Lal Bahadur Shastri, Chandra Shekhar and V.P. Singh. Murali Manohar Joshi was also one of his best students.

Rajju Bhaiyya shared an excellent rapport with political leaders cutting across ideological lines besides academicians, social workers and intellectuals. He abdicated the post of Sarsanghchalak on account of his failing health in February 2000 and nominated the K. S. Sudarshan ji for the post.

During emergency he went underground and toured whole India. He was also responsible for organizing human rights convention presided by Justice VM Tarkunde in Delhi in 1976. He was also responsible for setting up friends of India Society International.

One of his most important beliefs was: “All people are basically nice. One should deal with every person by believing in his goodness. Anger, jealousy, etc. are the offshoots of his past experiences, which affect his behavior. Primarily every person is nice and everyone is reliable.”

Rajju Bhaiyya was a firm believer in the concept of Swadeshi and empowering rural economy. Initiating the rural developmental activities, he had declared in 1995 that the utmost priority should be given in making the villages hunger-free, disease-free and educative. Today, there are over 100 villages where the rural development work done by swayamsevaks has inspired the people of surrounding villages and their experiments are being emulated by those people.

Addressing the Vijayadashami festival at Nagpur in 1995, Singh remembered Mohandas K. Gandhi and Lal Bahadur Shastri. He challenged the way in which the central government was working on fulfilling the dreams of these two statesmen.

Rajju Bhaiyya wanted to establish a memorial named after Bismil in Delhi, the capital of India. He died on 14 July 2003 at Kaushik Ashram in Pune, Maharashtra.

ఆర్ఎస్ఎస్ స్వయంసేవక్ -కాంగ్రెస్ జెండా

1937 కాంగ్రెస్ ఫైజాపూర్ సమావేశపు జెండా ఉత్సవంలో, 80అడుగుల కర్రపై కాంగ్రెస్ పతాకం చిక్కుకుపోయింది. ఎంతమంది ప్రయత్నించినా చిక్కు విడలేదు. అంతలో శ్రీ కిషన్ సింగ్ పరదేశి ధైర్యంగా 80అడుగుల కర్రని ఎక్కి, చిక్కుపడిపోయిన జెండాని విడిపించాడు, పతాకo ఎగరవేసినపుడు, అందరూ హర్షధ్వానాలతో స్వాగతించారు. ఒకరు శ్రీ పరదేశిని సత్కరించాలని ప్రతిపాదిస్తే సమావేశం ఆమోదించింది. అయితే తాను ఆర్ఎస్ఎస్ స్వయంసేవక్ గా అలవరచుకున్న జాతీయ స్ఫూర్తితో ధైర్యం చేయగలిగానని ఆయన చెప్పగానే కాంగ్రెస్ నాయకులు వెనుకాడారు. ఆర్ఎస్ఎస్ కార్యకర్తను వారు ఎలా సత్కరిస్తారు? హిందుత్వ దృక్పధం ఉన్న సంస్థల పట్ల కాంగ్రెస్ వివక్ష ఈ సంఘటనలో ప్రస్ఫుటంగా కనిపిస్తుoది.

   Kishen Singh 2


ఒక స్వయంసేవక్ చేసిన సాహసo విని డా.హెడ్గెవార్ ఎంతో సంతోషించారు. సాధారణంగా సంఘ్ కార్యక్రమాలకు ఎటువంటి ప్రచారం ఉండదు. దీనికి భిన్నంగా డా.హెడ్గెవార్, శ్రీ కిషన్ సింగ్ పరదేశిని దేవపూర్ శాఖకు ఆహ్వానించి ఆయనకు ఒక చిన్నవెండి బహుమతినిచ్చి సత్కరించారు. ఈ సందర్భంగా ఆయన `అవసరమైతే ప్రాణత్యాగమైనా చేసి, దేశానికి ఎదురయ్యే అడ్డంకులను తొలగించడం ఒక స్వయంసేవకుడి కర్తవ్యo, అది మన జాతీయ ధర్మం’ అన్నారు.    

ఒక వైపు డా.హెడ్గెవార్ సామ్రాజ్యవాద వ్యతిరేక స్ఫూర్తితో కాంగ్రెస్ పట్ల అభిమానం చూపెడితే, కాంగ్రెస్ మాత్రం సంఘ్ మీద ద్వేషం పెంచుకుంది. సంఘ్ సానుభుతిపరుడైన ఒక కాంగ్రెస్ వ్యక్తి డా.కాకాసాహెబ్ తెమ్భే, ఈ విషయంపై కలతచెంది, కాంగ్రెస్ పనితీరు, సైద్ధాంతిక వైఖరిని విమర్శిoచాలని కోరుతూ డా.హెడ్గెవార్ కి లేఖ వ్రాసారు. అలా చేస్తే సంఘ్ కార్యకర్తల అసంతృప్తి కొంతవరకు తగ్గుతుందని డా. తెమ్భే అనుకున్నారు.    


తెమ్భేకి  డా.హెడ్గెవార్ వ్రాసిన సమాధానం, ఆయనకు కాంగ్రెస్ పై ఉన్న అభిప్రాయమేకాక, ఆయన తాత్విక దృష్టిని కూడా తెలుపుతుంది. స్వయంసేవకుల మనసుల్లో కాంగ్రెస్ పట్ల ఎటువంటి విముఖత కలగకూడదని ఆయన భావించారు. ఆయన ముందు రెండు మార్గాలు ఉన్నాయి, ఒకటి- ఆర్ఎస్ఎస్ వేగంగా తన బలం పెంచుకుని, విప్లవo ద్వారా బ్రిటిషువారిని దేశం నుంచి తరిమిగొట్టడం; రెండు కాంగ్రెస్ ఆధ్వర్యంలో  సామ్రాజ్యవాద వ్యతిరేక పోరు కొనసాగించడం. బ్రిటిషువారితో  పోరాటంలో అనేక కేంద్రాలు ఏర్పడడం డా.హెడ్గెవార్ కు ఇష్టం లేదు. ఈ ఆలోచనతోనే ఆయన  తెమ్భేకి  ఈ విధంగా వ్రాసారు –   

 `ప్రపంచంలో ప్రతి వ్యక్తి వారి మనస్తత్వం ప్రకారం ప్రవర్తిస్తుంటారు, ఒక పార్టీకి లేక ఒక సిద్ధాంతానికి వారిని ప్రతినిధిగా అనుకునే అవసరం లేదు. నా అభిప్రాయంలో, ఏ సభ్యుడు ఏ విధంగా మాట్లాడినా, ఆ వ్యక్తి ఉన్నపార్టీని లేక సిద్ధాంతాన్ని పొగడడం లేక ఖండించడం పొరపాటు. ఉన్నతమైన వ్యక్తిత్వం ఉన్న వారు ఏ రాజకీయ పార్టీకి చెందినవారైనా, మరొక పార్టీకి చెడు జరగాలని కోరుకోరు’.
