In this era of technology, All it takes is just a software to fabricate a video or a picture & then publish it in social media to make a mountain out of a mole. Many TV channels are now reporting that video of JNU student leader was doctored by adding anti-national slogans.

If this is true, can we even understand the pain that the parents of the guy had felt when their son was declared as anti-national or terrorist without the verification of evidences? Many people even declared the whole JNU as anti-national based on the actions of the few, because making such declarations strengthens their image of being nationalist in their friends circle.

I still don’t know the truth, and the courts will eventually give their judgment. The fact is, even I felt disturbed by hearing hatred slogans against the country. And every person who chants hatred slogans, breaks integrity, or incites violence, must be punished by the law, whether they are students of any college, or lawyers who take the law into their own hands. But, the people sitting in chilling AC, watching TV, and doing Facebook at least should not give judgement about someone or his family and should not call them Anti-Nationals, until it’s proven in the courts. I don’t support any political ideologies, be it left or right. I only support solutions and care for someone’s parents’ feelings, until they are convicted.

If we consider ourselves educated, then we must realize that it is our duty to come out of the attitude of spreading one sided negativity, which can harm someone until it’s proven. Otherwise It will take us nowhere and the country will keep on having inconclusive TV debates on these regular issues.

  • RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh) is a is an Indian right-wing
  • RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat expressed his views on Indian Army’s preparation in his speech to RSS workers in Muzaffarpur in Bihar
  • Kiren Rijiju said if the Constitution permits, RSS can go ahead with its interference in military matters.

The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh wants to re-mould the Indian State with a military which adheres to Hindutva, the Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) has said.

This is the message that emerges from RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat’s speech to RSS workers in Muzaffarpur in Bihar that while the Army takes six to seven months to train its soldiers, the RSS can get its cadres ready for battle in two to three days, the CPI-M said.

“This remark has drawn widespread condemnation, with the main criticism being that the RSS chief had insulted the Indian army by claiming that the RSS can do a better job than the Army in training soldiers,” an editorial in the CPI-M journal “People’s Democracy,” said.

“While this criticism is valid, the intent of these remarks is much more serious,” it said. “The statement has revealed a vital aspect of the RSS outlook about the Army and the militarization of society.”

The editorial said: “What the RSS wants in the re-moulding of the Indian State is armed forces which adhere to Hindutva. For Bhagwat, the soldier in the Indian Army and the Swayamsevak of the RSS are on the same footing.

RSS support Hindus
RSS world’s largest organisation promote Hindutva.

“Under the present Indian Constitution, such an integration of the Army and the RSS is not possible.

That is why, both the RSS clarification and the defence put out by (Minister of State for home) Kiren Rijiju makes this qualification that if the Constitution permits, the RSS can go ahead with its interference in military matters.

“The implication is ominous: a re-worked Constitution should enable this to happen.”
