Chapter 5: Nationalism and the RSS

Even those who call themselves “scientists” are irrational. In 1991, the Indian Science Congress established an award “for the contribution of a scientist to spiritual pursuits” and in 1992 gave the award to someone who maintained that astrology is “part science, part intuition…(p. 82). When a scientific institution does something like this it becomes a joke.

The process assimilates “the cultural features that threaten the Hindus [by] claiming that they belong to the Vedic golden age.” It is strategic, “because it underlies an ideology that aims to dominate the others in terms of prestige as well as on a concrete socio-political plane.”…(p. 84).

Assimilation of anything that threatens Hinduism by being superior in thought and ideas is automatic and what it cannot assimilate is the bad -- ‘Malecha’ or the other.

Golwalkar’s most strident denunciations of Muslims were as a “rape” of the motherland…(p. 99)

The ramblings of a demented mind are obvious for those who have actually read his writings, “A Bunch of Thoughts” with an open mind. For lack of a better and stronger word, Nazism comes to mind when one is trying to describe the RSS. In 1991 a group calling itself the Overseas Friends of the BJP was established in New York by Dr. Mukund Mody. At about the same time a rival group calling itself “Concerned NRI’s” was formed in California…(p. 112)

 

These groups are known to have collected several million dollars since then and channeled the money into BJP/RSS coffers to carry out pogroms and genocides against various ethno-religious minorities time and time again.

 

Chapter 6: A Perspective on Hindu-Muslim Conflict

In 1981, conversion of a few hundred Dalits to Islam in Meenakshipuram in Tamil Nadu was exploited by communal Hindus…they felt threatened from many sides…(p. 117)

Any conversion of the lower castes to especially a Semetic is a threat to the Brahminic hegemony. The real fear being their power base gets eroded and the upper castes will very quickly be a minority which is an overwhelming fear and the best kept secret.

A committee set up by the Press Council of India censored four Hindi Dailies…A minority report of the investigating committee criticized what it called “editorial activism”. Some editors took part in VHP rallies… Some correspondents were alleged to have acted as VHP messengers…(pp. 122f)

In India, even the media is heavily biased and actively connive against minorities, especially against Muslims, Sikhs, Christians, Dalits, etc.

Although it is difficult to estimate the total loss, a rough estimate - including the loss in goods and services, trading, tax revenues and compensation for victims - amounts to above Rs. 10,000 crore ($3.3 billion), no insignificant loss for a poor country like India…(p. 138)

This is just a sample of a typical economic loss after a “pogrom” generated by the Brahminic powerbrokers which is always termed as a “riot” in the Indian media. Pogroms and ethnic cleansing happen very often in India but are cleverly disguised as “riots” which happen on impulse, when the truth is that they are always planned, financed and armed. In Surat, some women were cut to pieces after being raped. When will our conscience be shocked?...(p. 142)

I have come to the conclusion that the average Indian is a timid follower with no moral backbone; therefore, he has no conscience; and when led by racist thugs the sheep like Indians suddenly are transformed into a horde of blood thirsty Devils. This has not changed in the last 60 years of India’s independence, in fact is getting bad to worse.

 

Chapter 7: Shiv Sena and “National” Hindusim

Members of the Sena are discouraged persons who think they deserve a better lot… is a young man from a “poor and dignified” background, full of goodwill but rejected, who feels superfluous in existing society, he is an arrogant petty bourgeois (with a landlord mentality) who does not wish to soil his hands and is ready to go to worst extremes to avoid demeaning himself…(p. 147)

Shiv Sena members are basically lazy bigots something akin to Skinheads in Germany or the KKK in the US who are good at nothing except being organized criminals in the clever guise of social activists. This terrorist organization has the full unofficial support by all the ever-changing regimes in India.

The Sena has a permanent propaganda directed towards young Sikhs, particularly the munis (Sikhs who trim their beard and hair). Munis are often young, from well-off or quite wealthy families, who wish to escape the strict religious rules of their community. They are not drawn to Hinduism as a doctrine and are generally not religious, but seek to rid themselves of their sectarian image and integrate themselves… a way to rid themselves of the anti-national image, of which Sikhs are readily accused in India today… (p. 152)

Gerard Heuze has made a loaded statement here. No doubt the Sena does have a permanent propaganda to assimilate, directed towards Sikhs and their Faith since the late 1970s. The Sikhs he is referring to are a very small minority and these typically belonging to the trader class in cities who are under tremendous peer pressure to join these groups since those Sikhs who join live away from Punjab where as a Faith group they are in fear of reprisals living as micro-minority. The anti-national label is something that the Brahminic hegemony loves putting on anyone that has not been ‘mainstreamed’ yet and anyone who will speak out for civil liberties and justice.

Hindus are not a nation, despite efforts towards “national Hinduism”. Among Indian youth, discipline is an indifferently held quality, while war has for long been a remote prospective…(p. 168)

The Hindus of the Central and Northern India are the primary power pushers of the Hinduvata agenda regardless of the large underclass who could care less about it. The contradictory and very divergent thought processes within so-called Hinduism is exactly the agenda of the Brahminic forces which are to coalesce everything into one single whole.

 

Chapter 8: Sowing Dragon’s Teeth

Pyraelal wrote that it was “common knowledge that the RSS had been behind the bulk of the killings” in Delhi and other parts of India during the ethnic cleansing of 1946-47. He called the RSS “a communalist, para-military fascist organization” that had infiltrated the Hindu middle class and even the government services…(p. 171)

Gandhi’s staunchest supporter, secretary and biographer Pyarelal has described the RSS very candidly, rather surprising coming from a Hindu. This description…has today become a major force to reckon with and is beyond anyone’s control.

A Muslim who abjured his religion would be assimilated only on Hinduism’s bottom floor…(p. 174)

Hindus make a huge fuss if an untouchable converts to Islam or whatever else but refuse to accept [him] on equal terms as a Hindu. Let no one be surprised if sowing of the dragon’s teeth shall someday germinate...(p. 176)

This statement by Rudolf Rocker was meant for Hitler’s Germany but this is very apt for India where those dragon teeth are not only germinating but this is now the most deadly virus which will ultimately bring about the country’s ruin.

No one familiar with India can deny that there is little pan-Indian sentiment except among the small minority of English-speaking, wealthy upper castes who benefit from a continental market for their skills, products and political ambitions…(p. 179)

The famous “divide and rule” policies which the British have always been accused of, is really straight out of the Arthashastra Veda of the Brahmins. India was never one and never will be one. The British coined the word “India” and glued over 550 countries together and put them on a platter and handed the ‘whole’ over to a permanent Brahminic minority; who is rewriting history Hinduvata style at a feverish pitch.

 

Chapter 9: Two Documents on the Fragility of India

Beating, punching, kicking…Hanging or other forms of torture…Wet submarine; a person is made to lie on the ground…beaten kicked for hours, even days… Frame Treatment, A person bound spread eagle to a vertical rectangular wooden frame… shocks given to head, eyes, cheeks, ears, neck, shoulders, armpits, back and even private parts…Various tortures, using pincers to pull… even pubic hair…applying chilli powder in the anus… sticking pins all over the body…Attacks on women, stripping them naked…gang rape… (pp. 182f)

The brutal methods of torture are all commonly called “the third degree” in Indian terms. Every law on the books is thwarted with the full knowledge and permission of the top brass in the Centre.

Frightened, Sarat ran to a paddy field, but the armymen chased and rounded him up in the paddy field and shot him at point blank range…(p. 184)

Encounter Killings, literally staged murders by the police and army is a daily occurrence and hundreds of thousands of bounties have been paid by the federal and state governments for this ongoing gruesome task especially in Panjab, Kashmir, Assam, Nagaland and states looking for autonomy or outright secession from India.

 

Chapter 10: Women and Sisterhood

Uma Chakravarti writes in a study of patriarchy in early India, “castes hierarchy and gender hierarchy are the organizing principles of the brahminical Social Order… Women are regarded as gateways-literally points of entrance into the caste system. The lower caste male whose sexuality is a threat to upper caste purity has to be institutionally prevented from having sexual access to women of the higher castes so women must be carefully guarded”…(p. 193)

Whether it is Nazi Aryan philosophy or the (hate) pure blood philosophies of the various ‘white races’ the world over, this is no different but in-fact much worse than that as it has (Hinduism’s) religious sanction to carry on their ominous agenda in perpetuity.

If he is forced to enter the public sphere where she is not 'honoured' or ‘respected’, and if her purity is violated, she had to kill herself through sheer will force…(p. 200)

M. K. Gandhi’s statement, clearly lopsided and contradictory, but Brahminic view shows what upper castes think of women!

The most crucial segment for family planning is the most neglected: adolescent girls in rural surroundings… Nayar’s study found that 40 percent of rural girls in the six-to-eleven age group were out of school…(p. 202)

Rural women have borne the brunt of missing out on education due to lack of concentrated initiative by the central authorities since the vast majority fall in the lower castes. Any positive work is largely by NGOs and all else is a sham.

 

Chapter 11: The End of Illusions

Slowly, imperceptibly, almost, it seems, as it were the inevitable course of destiny, caste has grown and spread and seized every aspect of Indian life in its strangling grip…(p. 218)

Instead of losing its grip, the caste system is like the simple Chinese finger tightner toy. On all college campuses in India, college elections primarily are fought based on caste loyalty even today. These are bastions of education to free the mind of all kinds of fritters, but the opposite is true. The more the education the more bigoted Indians [Hindus] seem to get.

During the Babri Masjid issue, thousands of otherwise educated and sane doctors, engineers, businessmen from USA, Canada, UK, etc, sent gold bricks to rebuild the Ayodhya Temple after its demolition. Caste is a deadly virus and at the very minimum is perpetuated through marriage even though the well-meaning Hindu may not agree with it.

The argument that Dalits are survivors of India’s original inhabitants - preached since the time of Phule more than 150 years ago - is too much against the grain of scholarly opinion to find support, except among those who are already persuaded. An attempt to get UN sub-commission to recognize Dalits as indigenous people is vigorously opposed by the government of India. For the rest of the world, caste is an internal issue and, hence, deserving no external intervention…(p. 230)

It is explicitly clear that India wants to keep the caste system intact, albeit carry on a charade of change extremely slowly while the Brahminic hegemony continues to make blood money on the backs of the Dalits for the last three thousand years and carries on unabated till today.

[In] the sanitized history…with which Indians are most comfortable…violence, suffering and many of the scars left by their history, are suppressed. …infamous role of the local administration in encouraging the attacks and suppressing evidence, including the destruction of “crucial” log books from police stations…the chopping off of the breasts of women; the spearing of infants and children, the spears with the victims impaled on them being twirled around in the air to accompaniment of laughter ...(pp. 238f)

These acts can only be attributed to mentally deranged humans, but the hard fact is that they are all perfectly normal, men of all ages and women too, in the minority though, who like an annual Halloween festival lust for blood as roving Draculas doing their best to fill the bottomless bowl of the goddess Kali.

An organization, calling itself the Brahmin Mahasangh, felt Brahmins were in particular danger. “Anguished at the growing caste contradiction in society,” it appealed to Brahmins “to produce at least six sons each” and send them “to join the army, police, administrative services and trade” (Hindustan - in Hindi, Oct 3, 1991…p. 251)

Brahminic hegemony for thousands of years is slowly eroding and that scares the heck out of them. Brahmins constitute no more than 3.5% of the entire 1.2 billion Indians but fill and control between 40-75% of all civil service jobs from the bottom to the very top.

The judiciary consists of over 75% Brahmins with little chance of justice for anyone not belonging to the three upper castes of the Brahminic Social Order. They do not want this lopsided highly unjust and greedy status quo upset in anyway whatsoever.

Unfortunately most Indians do not read such books as the truth is too depressing and they are faced with too many embarrassing questions. Fortunately, academics like the ones who have written this book need to be applauded for writing on such a vast subject in a very cogent manner and making their point.

Anyone with a conscience interested in truth, justice, equality and the rule of law in South Asia must read this book.
