RSS vital for India’s development

A lie repeated often enough starts appearing to be the truth. Nothing could be truer for all those so-called ‘secular’ forces who continuously term the RSS a fascist organisation.

For instance, when MS Golwalkar, the second RSS Sar Sanghchalak, made the observation about Hitler’s campaign of ethnic cleansing against Jews that “to keep up the purity of race and its culture, Germany shocked the world by her purging the country of the Semitic race”, it was misinterpreted by the ‘secularists’ and shown to be an example of how the RSS was following in Hitler’s footsteps by advocating the purity and sacredness of Hindu culture.

This distortion of Golwalkar’s words is nothing short of deliberate insinuation. The word ‘shocked’ used by him in his above observation reveals his intense abhorrence of fascist policies.

Further, scanning through the events after the unfortunate assassination of Mahatma Gandhi in 1948 by Nathuram Godse, there is irrefutable evidence to suggest that the Congress Government led by Jawaharlal Nehru resorted to the most repressive fascist tactics to finish the RSS. Under the charge of Godse being its active member, the RSS was banned in February 1948. Golwalkar was arrested and put behind bars without trial for almost 18 months till July 12, 1949, when the ban on the RSS was lifted.

More so, the fascist tendencies of the Congress were once again on display during the Emergency and the 1984 anti-Sikh pogrom. Yet, it is the post-Godhra communal violence that has been played up out of proportion to malign the Sangh Parivar. This is despite the fact that the culprits of the post-Godhra violence are being prosecuted and are likely to be punished, but nothing of this sort has happened in case of the 1984 Sikh massacre.

The Congress and its ‘secular’ ilk have also cooked up other baseless accusations against the RSS. For example, it has blamed the latter for opposing market economy. Whereas, in reality the Sangh’s perception pertaining to market economy and liberalism merely reflects its concern over the unrestricted entry of multinational companies in sectors of the Indian economy which till date were dominated by indigenous industry.

The fact is that sectarian interests in India have overshadowed national interest. We lack national spirit for which the RSS has been striving hard for the last 83 years. The need of the hour is to seek the help of its devoted workers for the development of the country rather than demean them for the sake of garnering minority votes.
