Please enlighten us as to who is author of the so called ‘Anchor-Blunt Butcher’, published now and then in your paper. It is the editor or some Gumnam contributor? This is in response to your write up ‘Why Rahul Gandhi maligns India outsie India’ you were commenting on the so called “Jobless” Rahul Gandhi’s observations in a top-ranking academic institution in Europe. He had made similar observation in the US, including Harvard University (No.1 in the world). How is it that no body from RSS/BJP ever gets invited to these world class academic institutions? The so called “Self Styled Prince of Nehru Gandhi Clan” was ruthlessly critised for crossing the “Red -line of Patriotism”. He was rudely taken to task for “Comparing RSS to Muslim Brotherhood of the Arab World”. The RSS is then defined by you as the same thing as “all Hindus”. Sir, I am also a Hindu, and there are millions of Hindus who have nothing to do with RSS, who, in fact, regard RSS as a Fascist Organisation. Writing in the Hindustan Times, Rajdeep Sardesai says, “Bash Rahul is almost daily diet for BJP, Social Media, Etc” (Sep.4-2018).
Rahul and the Congress have, it is alleged, “affixed” the terror-tag to “all Hindus”. Therefore, the non-RSS Hindus should get ready to face “the warth of RSS activists”. Obviously, this is an open threat of physical violence. Isn’t it? The whole article is thus full of convoluted logic. Finally, we are informed that “Rahul Baba” is fast losing his credibility. He is not. But even if he is, let it be so. Why should you spend sleepless nights? The next election is round the corner, particularly in Rajasthan, MP, and Jarkhand. Who is losing credibility shall be known in 2-3 months!.
The gumnam author of the piece also carelessly talks about “Sedition’. The Law Commission of India recently observed that “berating of the country, or a particular aspect of it cannot be treated as Sedition” (For details see The Tribune, Aug. 31st, 2018). The JK, which introduced the sedation Law, abolished it 10 years ago. Lastly, it is reported widely that RSS is considering inviting Rahul to its major function next month. Your take!
In sum, I take the liberty of pointing out that the mud-slinging game is wholly non-productive, and does not add to the credibility of your esteemed paper. I leave it at that. To conclude, Gandhi Ji used to assert in all his prayer meetings that “India did not belong to Hindus alone”. Gandhi, Nehru, Patel, Ambedkar, strongly believed that all religious communities were ‘equal partners’ in the ‘Indian Nation building’. Hindutva of RSS is indeed counter productive.
