Hinduvadis vis-à-vis Maovadis

Till now the public do not know the top leaders of the Maoists, where their headquarters is, how they plan, their organizational hierarchy, their source of arms and funding. Contrast this with Hindutva leaders and organizations; they are always in the news for one reason or the other. Recently a Hindu organization held an all India convention where a number of Hindu leaders from various organizations spoke on different issues affecting the Hindu society and religion and the proceedings of the convention was broadcasted live. Will not this move alert their enemies of what is going on in their rival’s camp and identify the leaders whom they could eliminate? For instance in Uttar Pradesh BJP leaders, in Tamilnadu and Kerala Hindu Munani and RSS leaders respectively are being target assassinated. Hence Hinduvadis should emulate the Maovadis and plan their move in secrecy.

Ideologies like Hindutva or Marxism are like medicines to cure ailments afflicting political and social systems. And medicines are bitter and had to be forced down the throat. The Maovadis know this truth and hence they do not believe in public protests or participate in elections and concentrate all their energies in accumulating arms and ammunitions with a view to capture political power. Having strong belief in the maxim that, power flows from the barrel of the gun, Maovadis have succeeded in creating awe and fear in the minds of the public including the government and media. In contrast the media ridicules the Hinduvadis and the government does not take their views seriously.

In India the military, para-military and the police force act as stooges to the ruling crook politicians. While the Maovadis have dared to challenge the para-military, I doubt whether our Hinduvadis could at least put a stiff resistance against the lathi wielding corrupt and inefficient policemen? The difference between the Hinduvadis and Maovadis is due to the latter’s commitment to his ideology. The Maovadis are committed to their ideology as seriously as the jihadis to their cause. Many of these jihadis are students from madrasas where they are taught Koran and Hadis. The jihadis are ready to take lives and sacrifice their own lives for their religion. Contrast this with the attitude of our boys who learn the Vedas and Gita in traditional schools? Are they ready to act as per the advice of Lord Krishna to fight against the evil? Never; their main aim of studying the Vedas is because it will help them in their livelihood, especially in the performance of some meaningless rituals in the house of the rich and the politicians.

With much dismay we have to accept the harsh reality of some Hindu organizations which are nothing but paper tigers and their leaders publicity hungry. A Hindu Rashtra cannot be achieved by these people. Hindus have to think big, as the patriot Lala Hardayal had said that if we Hindus want to keep our children and grandchildren safe not only we should convert all the Muslims of India (at that time India included the territories comprising the present day Pakistan and Bangladesh) but also Afghanistan. In contrast to the big dreams of such patriots, today we have Hindu organizations harassing youths celebrating Valentine’s Day, burning stores selling Valentine’s Day cards and involved in other cheap gimmicks. After all those young men and women who celebrate Valentine’s Day are Hindus. Today the impact of western culture is such that even in so called orthodox families after performing homas for elderly couples crossing certain age or on their fiftieth wedding anniversary, the youngsters in their families cut cake and celebrate. Today our enemies are not only using sophisticated arms but also technology in pursue of their goals. Hence Hinduvadis should not do anything which will alienate Hindu youths that too who is educated and instead utilize their service in realizing their objectives.


Urgent need for a new Hindu party

With the BJP coming to power at the center, a vacuum has been created among the political parties who would fight or at least highlight the problems faced by Hindus and Hinduism. In fact the BJP had never been a genuine Hindu party as in power its government was not much different from that of the Congress led government and only while in opposition it used to make noise when Hindu interests were harmed. With development being the mantra of the new BJP government, all efforts to rejuvenate Bharatheeya ethos and culture will take a back seat. Hence there is an urgent need for a genuine Hindu party with the following objectives as its goal.

  • To vigourously pursue Shuddhi movement, i.e., to bring back non-Hindus into the Hindu fold.
  • To eradicate caste-system and opening of priesthood to all Hindus.
  • To propagate the ideals of Sanatana Dharma and its philosophy to the outside world.
  • To make Sanskrit as the link/national language.
  • To ban conversion of Hindus to Islam and Christianity.
  • Introduce separate electorates for Muslims. They should be given one seat in each state to represent the total Muslim population of that state. But elected Muslim representatives should not be given any role in the formation of a government either at the State level or Centre when political parties fall short of majority to form the government. This will prevent Hindu politicians from pursuing appeasement policies and creating animosities between Hindus and Muslims.
  • To officially change the name of India into Bharath and to have a new national anthem composed in Sanskrit and a new national flag i.e., the Bhagvadwaja with om inscribed on it.
  • To allow Hindus to possess firearms without license for self-defense.
  • To close Aligarh Muslim and Jamia Milia Islamia Universities, Urdu medium schools and Madrasas as they are hindrance for Muslims to join the mainstream of Indian society.
  • To ban use of loud speakers in Mosques, offering namaz in public spaces and to stop giving subsidies for Haj pilgrims.
  • To ban Muslim men from practicing polygamy and Muslims couples from having more than two children.

The new party should be named as Akhila Bharateeya Sanatana Dharma Punaruthaan Samithi. The new Hindu party should not stand for elections and instead concentrate on building a strong mass cadre of dedicated men and women of integrity and commitment. Making a stand that it is opposed to electoral politics will prevent power hungry, unscrupulous and rowdy elements from joining the party. The support base for the BJP is from those who are in the corporate sector, English educated upper and middle class, army generals, IAS/IPS officers and legal luminaries. The new Hindu party should be a platform for the vernaculars, rural, lower and lower middle class, hawkers, self-employed, daily wage workers and for ordinary sepoys and policemen; as it is these people who are rooted in this land and devoted to its religion and culture.
