via Punjab Newsline published on September 23, 2007

NAWANSHEHAR:  RSS Sarsanghachalak K.S.Sudarshanji on Sunday  called upon the people to unite to protect the country from the corrupt elements and from the spiritual and cultural onslaught unleashed by the foreign powers in the form of religious, extremist and commercial activities being undertaken through the propagation of ideologies like Marxism and Islamic fundamentalism and commercialism.

Addressing a huge gathering at a programme “Parnam Shaheedan Nu” organized by the Sangh to mark the birthday centenary celebrations of Shaheed Bhagat Singh at his native village Khat Kar Kalan this evening, the RSS supremo said that Bhagat Singh’s message was as relevant today as it was in the times of freedom struggle.

 “Foreign powers in the form of MNCs are once again out to make the country bankrupt-both spiritually and monetarily-by destroying our basic institutions like the family and by promoting commercialism in the country at the cost of poor”, he said. He maintained that though Marxism had failed across the globe yet the communists in the country were misleading the people terming it as panacea for all ills facing the country.

Earlier, the RSS Chief threw a detailed light on the life of the martyr by narrating events which led to his embracing martyrdom for the sake of country. Earlier, on his arrival, Sudarshan accompanied by state president Brij Bhushan Singh Bedi, former state parcharak Kashmiri Lal and secretary North Zone S.R.Vyas paid floral tributes at the statue of Bhagat Singh. He also visited the museum set up to perpetuate his memory.

Punjab BJP ministers Manoranjan Kalia, Tishan Sood, Lakshami Kant Chawla and Chaudhary Swarna Ram, besides local MLAs Jatinder Singh Kariha and Mohan Lal Banga, were also present. RSS’s organ “Panchjanya’s” editor Tarun Vijay was also present and addressed the gathering. Sudrashan also released a special issue of magazine “Pathic Sandesh” on the occasion. RSS volunteers presented the “Ghosh” (the salutation programme) with band and drums. Bhagat Singh’s relative Sukhminderjit Singh Sangha was also present on the dais. A ludhiana-based theatre group presented a play realed to the martyrdom of Bhagat Singh.
