With the new government seems to have scarcity of English speaking elite scholar the so called India Intelligentsia has blown a warfare against the Hindutva led establishment called intellectuals warfare. It has undeniably been a popular to become a critical rational thinker /intellectual by majority sentiment in the largest democracy in the name of Article 19(1)(a). Recent episodes of making Islamism terrorists and Kashmiri terrorists as national hero, questioning Supreme Court’s credibility, dividing the nation on the lines of Islamic Terrorism and Hindutva Fanaticism .Intellectualism could fall as low as to proclaim killer of nation’s police, army and citizens as martyrs to argue one particular community to region their lost nobility. Is this what is taught in premium institutions? Challenging Courts and legislation verdict is something acceptable in democracy but doing so to proton age murderers of hundred of citizen is a kind of political powerlessness that cannot be justified in any liberal civilised world. Undermining the national security, dignity of soldiers and making terrorist a national hero who gunned down many innocent people in Kashmir, is far from being acknowledged as an act of Azad. For the sake of pseudo-publicity and to be framed as elite rationalist intellectual critical thinker and writer. No nation, liberal/ secular democracy gives such a high profile privilege to those defaming their own country.
Intellectual and Hinduism: Every time you come across a article , blog or post or anything that has the word “Hindu” in it describe the post as “vile and disgusting” regardless of actual context. Intellectuals have habit of expressing hatred for Hinduism constantly and diligently. Intellectuals invest good in a suitable wardrobe. If you are a “man” crumpled Kurtas with a French beard is very helpful. It establish your intellectual credentials automatically, even if your IQ barely crawl to double digits. For the women also you need to wear handlooms sarees. It helps if your hair is liberally streak with grey. They always ask “But” “But” “But” what about 2002? In any TV panel discussion, even if the topic of discussion is about life of Animals in Wildlife Centuries. Intellectuals write blogs about Modi, using words like “monster”, “autocrat”, “Nazi”, “Hitler” and attending Anti- Modi seminars at the India, international level and talk passionate about malnutrition in Gujarat over a luxury table and champagne glasses. They make selective, controversial posting about army autocracy in Kashmir and weep bucket over the “oppressed Kashmiri Youth”. The only native we hear that, these guys are not real Muslims, terror has no religion. But make no mention of how Kashmiri Pandits were forced at gunpoint to leave their homes in the Valley. When they fail to argue, they start shouting the words like RSS, Hinduism is fascist, communal and intolerant. They cant argue logically and eventually, they will come to that point in almost every argument , announce loftily that they cannot be a “rabid internet Hindu” because their “fragile liberal Humanist” soul is unable to deal with the pain of our communal comments. Bluntly false and insulting terms like “Hindu Taliban ” “Wahbvi Hinduism” and “Saffron terror” are being thrown about casually insult , demean and demonise a faith that has been most tolerant ever in the history of Human civilisation. Every time an isolated hate crime happen in India like happened in Dadri it is used to malign the whole of Hindu faith but Islamist terrorist will bomb , shoot, rape, behead , burn alive thousands the only native we hear that those are not real Muslims, Terror has no religion.
Myths about RSS and Hindutva: By intellectuals social media has been a powerful medium in exposing the sinister campaign against RSS. A lot of people blindly ranting against the Rashtriya Swaymsevak Sangh without getting the proper information. Like RSS killed Gandhi, the fact is that Nathu Ram Godse killed Gandhi, this has been reiterated countless number of times and recent from Ram Madhav of RSS claimed Court record clearly RSS had nothing to do with Gandhi murder. Another myth is that Sardar Patel disliked RSS and put a ban on it. But the fact is that Patel had to take this action in 1948 due to political pressure from “Secular” Nehru and group. We also heard some myths like RSS is anti- national but we also know that RSS is the most nationalist organisation in India. RSS is pro India and pro Hindutva. That makes every single human in India, Hindu by culture, ancestry and tradition. That is the Hindutva (Hindu essence). RSS never preaches any religious doctrine using any sacred book with the eventual goal of converting to that doctrine 100 per cent. RSS does not believe in converting anyone to its religion. RSS does not preach violence in any of its Shakha. It only teaches people to be proud of glorious year’s culture and tradition. RSS treats Muslims, Christians and everyone else in India equal, irrespective of caste, creed or culture.
Talking about the accession of Jammu and Kashmir and its integration with India should have been a selected question several years ago. But the intellectual terrorism and anti india activism were attempting to keep that question alive. The problem with people in India is that we always open up new issues whenever they suits us. Parliament had already passed an unanimous resolution in 1994 saying that J&K is an integral part of India. But a premium on anti – India activism and intellectualism is always running. If you raise a question over India , you become famous and your works, articles , books also get a fame .This is the new customs of intellectuals and probably bring a lot of popularity to them.
If we do not speak against injustice, there will come a time when we will be refugees in our own country . Is has happened before, remember the Kashmiri Pandits. He Indian voter who was capable of looking beyond caste should himself capable of seeing through dynastic pretentions also. You cannot fool all the people all the time . Guru Golwalkar once said “Hindu means people who live in Hindustan irrespective of their ways of worship. He cannot be the son of soil at all who is intolerant of other faith . All that is expected of our co- citizens is the shedding of the notions of their being religious minorities and merging themselves in the common national stream of soil. As far as the national tradition of this land in concerned, even if one change in the method of worships, an individual remains and should remains an Indian.”
I don’t believe in people telling of their faith especially with a view to conversion. Faith does not admit of telling. It has to be lived and then become self propagating. Nor I do consider myself fit to interrupt Hinduism except through my own life . The only thing it is possible for me to reform to do , is to say, as briefly I can say . Why I am a Hindu.
