Republic Day

New Delhi: Officials of Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS), are in talks with the madrasas nationwide for hoisting the flag and singing the national anthem on the eve of Republic day. They want the Muslim seminaries to remember the freedom martyrs from 1857 to 1947.

The Muslim Rashtriya Manch or the nationalist Muslim front have asked their area conveners to hold discussions with the madrasas in their areas.

The Manch’s national leaders and state conveners will meet to discuss the details of the hoisting of flags in various madrasas in Varanasi on 20 and 21 January. Senior RSS official Indresh Kumar is the mentor.

At the recent RSS seminar held for the discussion on secularism, many members laid their views on the idea of representing different religions in the flag, saying “tricolor” as a reference to communalism.

The Manch wants the madrasas to hoist the flag on every republic day, stating “We want this practice to be routine, Madrasas should do this every year on January 26 and August 15,” said Mohammad Afzal, the Manch convener, also confirming his presence at two madrasas on republic day.

  • Animal sacrifice during Bakrid is a bad practice like Triple Talaq, says MRM
  • On September 11, a march from Lucknow to Ayodhya was planned in support for the construction of a Ram temple in Ayodhya
  • Eid-ul-Azha (Bakrid) will be celebrated on September 2

Lucknow, Aug 31, 2017: The Muslim Rashtriya Manch (MRM), an RSS affiliate, has appealed to Muslims to sacrifice bad habits and not goats this Eid-ul-Azha (Bakrid).

According to PTI report, “Animal sacrifice during Bakrid is a bad practice like Triple Talaq. People should boycott those advocating sacrifice on the day. Giving ‘Qurbani‘ during Bakrid is ‘haram’ (not approved) in Islam”, said MRM Convenor (Awadh Prant-UP) Syed Hasan Kausar.

“If anyone wanted to give sacrifice, he should shun his bad habits and cut a (symbolic) goat cake on Bakrid,” he said.

Kausar said that there were many superstitions amongst Muslims surrounding animal sacrifice and remarked that those with better education would “understand Islam.”

Meanwhile, MRM co-convenor K A Khurshid Agha supported a Ram temple in Ayodhya.

“As per Quran, prayers can not be offered at a disputed place, so how can the Babri mosque be constructed at the disputed site in Ayodhya,” he said.

Previously, Manch had announced that it would start a nationwide campaign to urge Muslims against consecrating cows on Eid-Ul-Azha primarily in Uttar Pradesh, West Bihar, and Bengal.

A resolution was passed against cow slaughter at an event presided by Indresh Kumar, senior RSS leader, in New Delhi where MRM leaders met Islamic scholars associated with the organization.

Agha said that “Muslims were confused about how to follow the path of Allah and they should come up against animal sacrifice.”

On September 11, a march from Lucknow to Ayodhya was planned in support for the construction of a Ram temple in Ayodhya by the organization. The march will reach Ayodhya on September 17, during which the MRM will organize presentations at every third kilometer to convince people about the construction of the temple.

Kerala Emerging as Epitome of Red Terror in India

Political clashes and the frequent approach of aggressiveness and extremism adopted by the leftists need to be addressed bringing all stakeholders together

  • Rajesh, an activist for the RSS, was brutally murdered in Thiruvananthapuram
  • The Bharatiya Janta Party’s Kerala Unit has alleged Community Party of India’s members and followers for the red terror
  • Both the parties have a history of being in physical conflict frequently in the state

July 30, 2017: On Saturday, RSS Activist Rajesh Edvakode was found critically injured in the state capital Thiruvananthapuram. Hours after the attack, Rajesh’s body gave up and he died. The victim’s hand was chopped off allegedly by workers and followers of the Communist Party of India (CPI-M). This incident has once again highlighted the constant red terror crimes in India at the hands of the aggressive left ideology.

BJP has reacted by calling a state-wide strike. The Kerala unit of the party has alleged the CPI-M members of committing the gruesome murder and given the history of conflict between the two parties, it is understandable why. Also given the fact that Kerala is haunted by the red terror propagandists who admire the hammer and sickle too much, the BJP was quick to respond. Eight suspects have been arrested by the police and it has been revealed that they have links with the Communist Party.

Along the political violence, Rajesh, a 34-year-old follower of the RSS on which the BJP has founded its principles, has been murdered.

In the press statement, Manoj Abraham, Inspector General of Police stated, “The attack was by a gang of men involving CPM (Communist Party of India (Marxist) activists. However, there was a long history of enmity between one of the accused and the victim. We are also probing any angle of a political motive.”

Two days ago, there was a violent conflict between the CPI and BJP members. On Thursday evening, an incident broke out into a fight between the two parties. The left ideology adherents were triggered by an assault to a left wing youth flag. The triggered leftists then vandalized residences of BJP members. Initially, six RSS members were arrested by the police. Further, four CPI-M members were also arrested.

Left wing youth members and the CPI-M counselor was caught on CCTV footage throwing stones at the BJP office. They too have been arrested.

The Communist Party in a press release denied any such accusations and allegations. However, given the political clashes in the past and the frequent approach of aggressiveness and extremism adopted by the leftists, the red terror problem, particularly in Kerala, needs to be addressed bringing all stakeholders together.

Kerala’s remarkable achievements as a forceful Indian state have been overshadowed by the rising political violence. Left wing aggressiveness is a reality in India, especially in certain states.

PM Modi in Israel: Is it The Alliance of Two Ideologies, Hindutva and Zionism?

The historical visit can also be discerned as the alliance of two ideologies, Hindutva and Zionism

Hindutva and Zionism

June 06, 2017: Narendra Modi is visiting the utopia of his Guruji Golwalkar, who was the second Sarsangchalak (Supreme leader) of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and also a land where the RSS dream has come to fulfillment. Golwalkar, the Hindutva leader in his book titled “We or Our Nationhood Defined” wrote:

A number of Jews, finding it difficult to live in those conditions maintaining their old religion and culture, left then-country Palestine, and came to Hindusthan—the purest stock of the children of Israel—and to this day they are inhabiting the country of the Hindus (the BeneIsraels of Bombay Presidency). Later, the engines of destruction loose under the name of Islam, completely destroyed their power and the Jews, in order to save what was most dear to them,—their religion and culture, fled from the country and scattered, all the world over naturalising themselves in various parts of the globe. Thus scattered they still live and with them live their religion, culture and language. They are still the same old Jews. With them nothing has changed except that they are exiles from their country and have no place to call their own; and they are all without exception, a rich and advanced people. But they are a people in name and are not a nation, as the whole world knows. The recent attempt at rehabilitating Palestine with its ancient population of the Jews is nothing more than an effort to reconstruct the broken edifice and revitalize the practically dead Hebrew National life.”

Zionism was the national movement of the Jewish people that was formed to promote the re-establishment of a Jewish homeland in the territory defined as the “Land of Israel”. Following the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948, Zionism continued originally to support on behalf of Israel and to address the threats to its existence and security.

A religious nature of Zionism promotes Jews buttressing their Jewish identity defined as adherence to Judaism, opposes the adaptation of Jews into other societies, and has bolstered the return of Jews to Israel as a means for Jews to be a majority nation in their own state.

On the similar lines, RSS provides character training through Hindutva discipline and unites the Hindu community to form a Hindu Rashtra (Hindu Nation). RSS leaders were supportive of the Jewish State of Israel and supported Israel during its formation. Golwalkar admired Jews for preserving their “religion, culture and language”.

In Israel, RSS has found an ally and a role model who put their grand vision to success. The historical visit can also be discerned as the alliance of two ideologies, Hindutva and Zionism.
