REJOINDERS
Confront RSS head-on

This has reference to Syed Shahbuddin's "Grand Stratagies and Hindu Nationalism" (Milli Gazette, 16-30 November 2003) in which he very clearly delineated the strategies adopted by the RSS in its drive toward a Hindu Rashtra, and BJP its frontal political party will at any cost preserve the very core of the ideology of Hindutva, having learnt the supinness and spineless nature of the alliances of the BJP. No doubt, BJP is the frontal political party of the RSS but since because of the ground work of the RSS the Hindutva-inculcated minds are spread across the political spectrum - including the so-called secular political parties. The result is the "tussle" between the soft Hindutva and hard Hindutva. All are trying to appeal to the Hindu sentiments, Hindu being defined more or less the same way as the RSS did. The victim is the secular India. Now the question is: Can we bring India back to its essence - plural democracy and secularism - by fighting some political parties in election times?

Fighting the venom of RSS from Marxist and other perspectives has failed. Shouting 'secularism', 'secularism' day in and day out is not going to succeed in checking RSS. Do we have a conceptual framework to challenge RSS effectively? And without challenging RSS in all its activities, culture included, we can not make India a secular country.

Whichever party will come to power since the parties are already infiltrated by RSS-inspired mindsets India may continue to slide into Fascism.
