Don’t Let Modern Dushasana’s to Disrobe Bharat Mata – Swami Chidanandapuri

By HK staff via Janmabhumi published on March 17, 2016


Thiruvananthapuram: Those who stand as muted spectators of the insults being heaped on Bharatamba will reap the same fate of Bheeshma, who lay on the bed of arrows, said Swami Chidananda Puri, head seer of Kulathoor Advaithashrama, Kozhikode. He was addressing the audience during the inaugural ceremony of Navodhana Sammelanam, a part of Hindu Mahasammelanam, organized by Ananthapuri Hindu Dharma Parishad in the capital city. The seer stated that the nation would have to pay a heavy price if we remained muted spectators even as the motherland was being disrobed in humiliation.

Pointing out how the cultural congregation organized by Art of Living Foundation was subject to unwanted calumny, Swamiji said that this is not an isolated instance. “Mata Amritanandamayi and Baba Ramdev were humiliated. In this connection we can gauge two kinds of reactions. A spate of violence was unleashed when an article appeared in a print media, reflecting certain episodes in the life of Prophet Mohammed. The newspaper came out with an apology even before protests gathered momentum. There were communal riots in Europe as part of a response to the cartoon on Prophet Mohammed. On the other side, the man who denigrated Hindu deities was conferred Ravi Varma Award, under the name of freedom of expression. Didn’t CPM leader Kodiyeri Balakrishnan depict the reverend head seer of Pejawar, Visweswara Theertha Swami as a terrorist?” said the seer.


Pointing out Bheeshma chose the bed of arrows during Kurukshetra war, following extreme remorse after having remained a mute spectator when Panchali was being disrobed by Dushasana, without having reacted against him, Swamiji said that “Bharatamba is a nation that is always looked up in reverence by world nations. But the very same nation is being dishonoured by many Dushasanans, who are none other than natives of the land. And if we are to maintain silence against the same, we will ultimately have to pay a heavy price, said Swami Chidananda Puri highlighting the need to react to such situations.

    JAMMU: Seeking action against AIMIM leader Asaduddin Owaisi for refusing to chant Bharat Mata ki Jai, the RSS on Wednesday said those who do not consider India as their motherland should leave the country. He (Owaisi) is making such unwarranted statements. If somebody does not consider our country as motherland, he is most welcome to go away from this country and go wherever he likes Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh’s Jammu & Kashmir leader Brigadier Suchet Singh said here. RSS reaction comes in the wake of Owaisi’s recent remarks that he won’t chant Bharat Mata ki Jai even if a knife was put to his throat. Singh said it was unfortunate that such people were elected to Parliament.
    Asked whether RSS wanted action against Owaisi, he said action must be taken and people are there to think about this. In fact, we can only suggest that anti-national activities by anti-national people must be identified and stern action taken against them he added.
    AIMIM (All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen)Jihadi leader Asaduddin Owaisi’s declaration that he would not chant ‘Bharat mata ki jai’ even if a knife is put to his throat, created a furore in the nation as it was heavily criticized by various sections of society, including leaders of many political parties. Veteran actress, Shabana Azmi, who is quite vocal about her views, reacted to Owaisi’s statement in her own unique way. Speaking at the India Today Conclave 2016, Shabana said,”I would like to ask Owaisi sahab, would he be ok saying ‘Bharat ammi ki jai’ instead of Bharat mata, if he has got a problem with ‘mata’ and not ‘bharat.
    Shabana was accompanied by her writer husband, Javed Akhtar, who said that AIMIM leader’s speech has only created disturbance in the country. He even went on to say that he is ready to contest elections against Owaisi from anywhere except Hyderabad, where 50% of the population is Hindu and the rest 50% Muslim.
