Vile, corrupt and gutter mouth chamacha of Madam Italian.
Some readers could not open the link that was given for this article in a previous post, hence I reproduce it here in full.
”सूप बोले सो बोले छलनी क्या बोले जिसमें बहात्तर छेद देश की सबसे पुरानी और सर्वाधिक समय तक सत्तासीन रहने वाली कांग्रेस और उसकी कुछ पिछलग्गू पार्टियां धर्मनिरपेक्षता, सांप्रदायिकता, अल्पसंख्यक संरक्षण जैसे विषयों पर कुछ बोलती हैं तो सहसा ही ऊपर लिखी कहावत याद आ जाती है। वास्तव में कांग्रेस ने आजादी के पहले और आजादी के बाद इन विषयों को लेकर जो चरित्र प्रस्तुत किया क्या उसके चलते उसे इन विषयों पर किसी से भी कुछ भी कहने का अधिकार है?
वर्तमान की बात करें तो कांग्रेस सहित देश के कुछ तथाकथित धर्मनिरपेक्षतावादी राजनैतिक दल गोरखपुर से भाजपा के सांसद योगी आदित्यनाथ के बयानों को लेकर हायतौबा मचाए हुए हैं। आगे बढऩे से पहले इन बयानों पर नजर डालना बेहद आवश्यक है।
कहते हैं कि मुसलमानों की संख्या जहां भी 10 प्रतिशत से ज्यादा है, वहां दंगे होते हैं। जहां इनकी संख्या 35 फीसदी से ज्यादा है वहां गैर मुस्लिमों के लिए कोई जगह नहीं है। एक अन्य बयान में आदित्यनाथ कहते हैं कि अगर वह हममें से एक को मारेंगे तो यह उम्मीद रखना छोड़ दें कि वह सुरक्षित रहेंगे। अगर वह शांति से नहीं रहते हैं तो हम उन्हें सिखाएंगे कि शांति से कैसे रहा जाता है। हमले और धर्मान्तरण के मामले में हिन्दू समुदाय मुसलमानों को अब जैसे को तैसा के अंदाज में जवाब देगा। संन्यासी के तौर पर मैं ऐसी असुर शक्तियों को दंडित कर सकता हूं। यदि मेरे एक हाथ में माला है तो दूसरे में भाला है।
लव जिहाद पर बोलते हुए योगी आदित्यनाथ ने कहा था कि लव जिहाद के जरिए देश को मुस्लिम राष्ट्र बनाने का षड्यंत्र चल रहा है। उन्होंने कहा था कि अगर देश में आपको रहना है तो भारतीय संस्कृति और सभ्यता का सम्मान भी करना पड़ेगा। एक अन्य वीडियो में योगी आदित्यनाथ यह कहते दिखाई देते हैं अगर वो प्रेम जाल में फंसाकर एक हिन्दू लड़की का धर्म परिवर्तन कराते हैं तो हम उनकी सौ लड़कियों को हिन्दू बनाएंगे। योगी आदित्यनाथ ने जो कुछ कहा वास्तव में वह कितना सच है अथवा कितना गलत, कितना सांप्रदायिक है अथवा कितना धर्मनिरपेक्ष सवाल यह नहीं है। सवाल तो सबसे बड़ा यह है कि स्वयं को धर्मनिरपेक्ष कहने वाली कांग्रेस और समाजवादी जैसे राजनीतिक दलों के नेताओं के पेट में इससे मरोड़ क्यों उठ रही है? वे योगी के बयानों को उत्तरप्रदेश में होने वाले उपचुनावों से जोड़कर बवाल क्यों मचा रहे हैं?
जो लोग ऐसा कर रहे हैं उनसे पूछा जाना चाहिए कि क्या कांग्रेस ने कभी इस तरह के बयान नहीं दिए? क्या कांग्रेस ने मुस्लिम तुष्टीकरण के चलते देश के करोड़ों हिन्दुओं की भावनाओं को आहत नहीं किया? यहां हम कुछ ऐसे उदाहरण प्रस्तुत करेंगे जिनसे यह सिद्ध होता है कि योगी आदित्यनाथ ऐसे बयान देने को क्यों मजबूर हुए। इतना ही नहीं इससे यह भी सिद्ध होता है कि कांग्रेस को योगी के बयान पर तनिक भी बवाल मचाने का नैतिक अधिकार नहीं है।
सबसे पहला उदाहरण उस कांग्रेस नेता का है जिसने लगातार दस वर्षों तक इस देश के प्रधानमंत्री पद की कुर्सी संभाले रखी। पूर्व प्रधानमंत्री डॉ. मनमोहनसिंह ने इस पद पर काबिज रहते एक सार्वजनिक कार्यक्रम में बोलते हुए कहा था कि इस देश के सभी संसाधनों पर पहला हक इस देश के अल्पसंख्यकों अर्थात मुसलमानों का है। एक प्रधानमंत्री का यह तुष्टीकरण भरा बयान आखिर क्या इंगित करताहै?
बात यहीं समाप्त नहीं होती जरा याद करिए कांग्रेस के जयपुर अधिवेशन को यहां कांग्रेस के वरिष्ठ नेता और देश के तत्कालीन गृहमंत्री सुशील कुमार शिंदे ने हिन्दुओं पर जो निशाना साधा था वह कितना निदंनीय और घृणित था शिन्दे ने हिन्दुओं के लिए भगवा आतंकवादी शब्द का इस्तेमाल करके कांग्रेस की हिन्दू विरोधी मानसिकता को पूरी दुनिया के सामने उजागर किया था।
यहां कांग्रेस के दिग्गज नेता और पार्टी महासचिव दिग्विजय सिंह के मुस्लिम तुष्टीकरण और हिन्दू विरोधी मानसिकता का जिक्र करना भी प्रासंगिक होगा। दिग्विजय सिंह ने एक तरफ मुस्लिम तुष्टीकरण में बाटला हाउस एनकांउटर को फर्जी ठहराया था। और इसमें मारे गए आतंकवादियों के घर जाकर आंसू भी टपकाए थे। दिग्गीराजा के मुस्लिम प्रेम के उदाहरण यहीं समाप्त नहीं होते पूरे देश ने टेलीविजन पर यह देखा है कि दिग्विजय सिंह ने ओसामा और हाफिज जैसे आतंकवादियों को किस प्रकार ‘जीÓ लगाकर आदर दिया था। कांग्रेस नेताओं के यह तो चंद किस्से ही हैं यदि पूरा इतिहास खंगाला जाए तो नेहरू से लेकर मनमोहन तक पूरी कांग्रेस अपने शासन काल में मुस्लिम वोट बैंक को अपनी तरफ करने के लिए इस देश के मूल निवासी हिन्दुओं के साथ छल-कपट की राजनीति करती रही और हिन्दू तथा हिन्दुत्व के खिलाफ जहर उगलती रही। ऐसी कांग्रेस को यदि योगी आदित्यनाथ के बयान सांप्रदायिक नजर आ रहे हैं तो यह देखकर बेहद आश्चर्य होता है।
योगी आदित्यनाथ के जिस बयान पर कांग्रेसी सहित इस देश के तथा कथित धर्मनिरपेक्षता वादी सर्वाधिक विधवा विलाप कर रहे हैं उसमें योगी ने कहा कि जहां मुस्लिम आबादी बढ़ती है दंगे वहीं होते हैं?
डॉ.पीटर हैमण्ड की पुस्तक ”स्लेवरी टेररिज्य एण्ड इस्लाम-द हिस्टोरिकल रुट्स एण्ड कण्टेम्पररी थे्रट तथा लियोन यूरिस की पुस्तक ”द हज ÓÓका अध्ययन करने पर मुस्लिम जनसंख्या को लेकर किए गए अध्ययन पर चौकानें वाले तथ्य सामने आते हैं जिनसे योगी आदित्यनाथ के बयान में कही बात को बल मिलता है। इन पुस्तकों के मुताबिक जब तक किसी देश में अथवा क्षेत्र में मुस्लिम आबादी 2 प्रतिशत के आसपास होती है, तब वे एकदम शांतिप्रिय कानून पसंद अल्पसंख्यक बनकर रहते हैं। जैसे कि अमेरिका में 0.6, आस्टे्रलिया में 1.5, कनाडा में 1.9, चीन में 1.8, इटली 1.5 तथा नार्वे में 1.8 प्रतिशत। जब मुस्लिम जनसंख्या 2 से 5 के बीच पहुंच जाती है तब वे अन्य धर्माविलंबियों में अपना धर्मप्रचार शुरू कर देते हैं, जिनमें अक्सर समाज का निचला तबका और अन्य धर्मों से असंतुष्ट हुए लोग होते हैं जैसे कि डेनमार्क में 2 प्रतिशत, जर्मनी में 3.7, ब्रिटेन में 2.1, स्पेन में 4 और थाइलैण्ड में 4.6 प्रतिशत।
मुस्लिम जनसंख्या के 5 प्रशित से ऊपर हो जाने पर वे अपने अनुपात के हिसाब से अन्य धर्माविलंबियों पर दबाव बढ़ाने लगते हैं और अपना प्रभाव जमाने की कोशिश करने लगते हैं। उदाहरण के लिए वे सरकारों व शॉपिंग माल पर हलाल का मास रखने का दबाव बनाने लगते हैं। वे कहते हैं कि हलाल का मांस न खाने से उनकी धार्मिक मान्यताएं प्रभावित होती हैं। इस कदम से कई पश्चिम देशों में खाद्य वस्तुओं के बाजार में मुस्लिमों की तगड़ी पैठ बनी उन्होंने कई देशों के सुपर-मार्केट के मालिकों को दबाव डालकर हलाल का मांस रखने को बाध्य किया। दुकानदार भी धंधे को देखते हुए उनका कहा मान लेता है अधिक जनसंख्या का फैक्टर यहां से मजबूत होना शुरू हो जाता है। ऐसा जिन देशों में हो चुका वह हैं। फ्रांस जहां मुस्लिम 8 प्रतिशत, फिलीपीन्स 6 प्रतिशत, स्वीडन 5.5, स्विटजरलैण्ड 5.3, नीदरलैंड 5.8तथा त्रिनिदाद और टौबेगो 6 प्रतिशत।
इस बिन्दु पर आकर मुस्लिम सरकारों पर यह दबाव बनाने लगते हैं कि उन्हें उनके क्षेत्रों में शरीयत कानून के मुताबिक चलनेे दिया जाए। जब मुस्लिम जनसंख्या 10 प्रतिशत से अधिक हो जाती है तो वे उस देश, प्रदेश, राज्य अथवा क्षेत्र विशेष में कानून व्यवस्था के लिए परेशानी पैदा करना शुरू कर देते हैं। शिकायतें करना शुरू कर देते हैं। छोटी -छोटी बातों पर विवाद दंगे, तोडफ़ोड़ पर उतर आते हैं। चाहे वह फ्रांस के दंगे हों, डेनमार्क का कार्टून विवाद हो या फिर एस्टर्डम में कारों का जलाना हरेक विवाद को समझबूझ बातचीत से खत्म करने के बजाए और बढ़ाया जाता है। जैसे कि गुयाना में 10 प्रतिशत मुस्लिम, इसराइल में 16 प्रतिशत, केन्या में 11 प्रतिशत और रुस मुस्लिम आबादी 15 प्रतिशत के कारण हुआ।
जब मुस्लिम जनसंख्या 20 प्रतिशत से ऊपर हो जाती है तब विभिन्न सैनिक शाखाएं जिहाद के नारे लगाने लगती हैं असष्णुता और धार्मिक हत्याओं का दौर शुरू हो जाता है। जैसे इथोपिया में 32 प्रतिशत भारत में 22 प्रतिशत।
मुस्लिम जनसंख्या के 40 प्रतिशत के ऊपर पहुंच जाने पर बड़ी संख्या में सामूहिक हत्याएं, आतंकवादी कार्रवाइयां चलने लगती हैं। जैसे बोस्निया में 40 प्रतिशत चांड में 54.2 प्रतिशत, लेबनान में 59 प्रतिशत। जब मुस्लिम जनसंख्या 60 प्रतिशत से ऊपर हो जाती है तब अन्य धर्मावलंबियों का जातीय सफाया शुरू किया जाता है उदाहरण (भारत का कश्मीर)जबरिया मुस्लिम बनाना, अन्य धर्मों के धार्मिक स्थल तोडऩा जजिया जैसा कोई अन्य कर वसूलना आदि किया जाता है जैसे अल्वानिया में 70 प्रतिशत, मलेशिया में 62 प्रतिशत कतर में 78 प्रतिशत और सूडान में 75 प्रतिशत। जनसंख्या के 80 प्रतिशत से ऊपर हो जाने के बाद सत्ता शासन प्रायोजित जातीय सफाई की जाती है। सभी प्रकार के हथकंडे अपनाकर जनसंख्या को 100 प्रतिशत तक ले जाने का लक्ष्य रखा जाता है। जैसे बांग्लादेश 83 प्रतिशत, मिस्त्र 90 प्रतिशत, गाजा पट्टी 98 प्रतिशत, ईरान, ईराक, जॉर्डन, मोरक्को, पाकिस्तान, सीरीया आदि।
मुस्लिम जनसंख्या 100 प्रतिशत यानी कि दार-ए इस्लाम होने की स्थिति में वहां सिर्फ मदरसे होते हैं और सिर्फ कुरान पढ़ाई जाती है और इसे अंतिम सत्य माना जाता है। जैसे अफगानिस्तान, सउदी अरब, सोमालिया, यमन आदि।
यदि इन आंकड़ों को तथ्थों को सही मान लिया जाए तो भारत में मुस्लिम जनसंख्या 22 प्रतिशत हो जाने की स्थिति बेहद गंभीर कही जा सकती है। ऐसे हालात में योगी आदित्यनाथ के बयान पर हाय तौबा मचाने के बजाए इस स्थिति पर गंभीरता से विचार की जरुरत है। रही बात कांग्रेस की तो उसके लिए यही कहा जा सकता है रस्सी जल गई पर बल नहीं गए।
Yogi Adityanath’s statements: a wonderful article exposing Congress’s hypocrisy and pointing to imminent danger to India from Islam.

A story of destructive governance and citizens who did not speak out
First, the UPA came for the roads sector. They destroyed contracting. They slowed down road construction. They left highways half built. We did not speak out. After all, the only reason the NDA could have started the golden quadrilateral is because they wanted to spread Hindutva.
Next, they came for the airline sector. They let Air India suck more money from taxpayers. They let bad regulation destroy the private sector. They let crony banking sustain bad bets. They ensured India would never be an aviation hub. We did not speak out. After all, flying is what birds do, not humans. Besides, aviation is bad for climate change.
Then they came for the power sector. They confused creation of mega capacities with actual generation. They had no rational pricing plans. They were arbitrary in the awarding of licences. They could not make up their mind whether they wanted to protect the environment or destroy it. We did not speak out. After all, the only power that matters is political. Electricity be damned.
Then they came for education. They promulgated the RTE after 100 per cent enrolment. They expanded capacity, but cut-offs still rose. They regulated in such a way that there was a glut in some subjects and a shortage in others. They confused university buildings with building universities. We did not speak out. After all our, our low quality education left us incapable of speaking out.
Then they came for industry. They turned the clock back in every way and waged open war. Ensure that regulations become more complex and uncertain. Ensure that input costs rise. Ensure crummy infrastructure. Promulgate a land scam policy known as SEZ and sell it as industrial policy. They encouraged FDI. But they forgot which one they wanted: outbound or inbound. But we did not speak out. After all, India is a rural country.
Then they came for employment. There was some growth. But they decided that the only good employment is that which has the hand of the state. So the NREGA’s expansion was seen as a sign of success, not failure. By its own logic, if more people need the NREGA, the economy has failed. But we did not speak out. After all, the more people we have dependent on government, the more we think it is a good government.
Then they came for agriculture. First, they create artificial shortages through irrigation scams. Then they have a myopic policy for technology adoption. Then they decide India shall remain largely a wheat and rice economy; we will have shortages for everything else. Then they price everything to produce perverse incentives. But we did not speak out. After all, why worry about food production when the government is giving you a legal right? Is there anything more reassuring than social policy designed by and for lawyers?
Then they came for institutions. They always had. This has been Congress DNA for four decades. They drew up a list of institutions that remained unscathed: Parliament, the IB, bureaucracy and you name it. They then went after those. They used institutions as instruments of their political design. They demoralised every single branch of government. But we did not speak out. After all, this was reform by stealth. Destroy government from within.
Then they came for inflation. They confused a GDP target of 10 per cent with an inflation target. Inflation will come down next quarter, we were told. Then they tried to buy us out. Inflation: no problem. Simply get the government to spend even more. Then they pretended inflation is a problem for the rich. Then they simply stopped talking about it. We did not speak out. After all, for some, inflation is just a number
Then they came for the telecom sector. They got greedy and milked it. They got arbitrary and retrospectively taxed it. But we did not speak out. After all, new communication can be a threat to government. Besides, we can always revert to fixed lines. More digging is good.
Then they came for financial stability. They produced a large deficit. They brought the current account deficit close to an unsustainable point. They nearly wrecked the banking sector. They created every macro-economic instability you can imagine, which makes investment difficult. But we did not speak out. After all, what would you rather have: macro economic stability or a free lunch?
Then they came for regulation. It was back to the 1970s. More arbitrary regulation is good. More rules are good. Uncertainty makes business more adept. The answer to every administrative problem is enacting a new law. Multiple regulators are good because they represent the diversity of India. We did not speak out. After all, just like the religious confuse piety with mere ritual, the virtuous confuse regulation with outcomes.
Then they came after freedom. They promulgated more restrictive rules for everything: freedom of expression, right to assembly and protest, foreign scholars. They used sedition laws. They kept the architecture of colonial laws intact. They said they stood against communal forces. But then they let Digvijaya Singh keep the communal pot boiling. They matched BJP’s communal politicisation of terrorism at every step and then some. We did not speak out. After all, if they are not Hindutva forces, they cannot be a threat to peace and liberty.
Then they came for virtue itself. They preached, from the very summit of power: avoid responsibility. It will always be someone else’s fault. They legitimised being corrupt: you are entitled to it if you are the party of the poor. They encouraged subterfuge to the point that members of the cabinet were subverting each other. They pretended that integrity is a word that does not mean anything. To independent thinkers, they said: why think when there is 10 Janpath? We did not speak out. After all, virtue and thinking can both be outsourced.
Then they came for the poor. They visited their houses and slept in their homes. They liked the experience so much they decided to become growth sceptics. Enact policies that keep India in poverty a little longer. But we did not speak out. After all, once the poor have been used as an argument, all else is immobilised.
Then they came for the citizens. They used the secularism blackmail to reduce our choices. If you are not with us you are evil they said. Then they infantilised us. You are not capable of exercising choices so we will make them for you. They acted as if we were so stupid that the three topmost leaders felt no need to justify themselves to us. But we did not speak out. After all we do have the vote.

Some additions to the above:
Then they came for states. They looked at all states in the country and found out that they have pockets where they got their maximum vote share. They liked retaining them so much that they decided to break them down just on the eve of elections to maximize their gain and minimize the gain of opposition. But we are not speaking out. After all, what was India but a loose amalgamation of over 600 princely states unified into one.
Then they came for national security. They looked at all borders and neighbors of the country and told themselves that non-alignment is just another name for inaction and chose to take no decisions at all. But we did not speak out. After all, who cares about national security when personal future is not secure without any dependence on government.
Vasanth Ramadurai •
On another side, perhaps I would add…
Then they came for those who decided to speak out. Lathis & water cannons were used on students who protested the brutal rape of a young girl. People who requested a LokPal Bill were hounded into silence. One corrupt minister replaced another in the cabinet – with utmost disregard for people’s faith in democracy. They mistook our patience as powerlessness. After all, they know a lot of us have a very short-term memory & they will prevail come 2014.
last but not least – Congress ruined India, But we did not speak out. After all we are Indians.
Just one point… WE DID SPEAK OUT but the FIREWALL called MEDIA, BLOCKED it out, and let their own PAID/TWISTED logic spread…

The once glorious Indian National Congress, and the once glorious Rajputs, are both at the lowest ebb of their respective traditions as seen in two members of the Congress Party. The choice of Sonia Gandhi as President of the Party was a hapless one. The present writer has written about her unsuitability for Indian conditions. Unlike the intrepid freedom fighter for Indian independence, the Irish stalwart Annie Besant, who had immersed herself in Hindu India’s traditions, Sonia continued to nurture her monotheistic superstitions, thanks to the fact that her general education was non existent. It is not certain whether she has even a high school degree, or that she even took the diploma from the foreign language school in Cambridge town where the good nuns from Italy had sent her hoping that she would become an au pair girl or a domestic. Nor did she make an effort to study Indian history and Bharat’s culture and civilization. She locked herself into a solitude, surrounded by dubious characters. This was not her choice one hopes and her subsequent incursions into the murky side of a corrupt Congress led her down the unavoidable slippery slope. And as some commentators have observed, her mask has finally fallen, with the vicious attack on a Hindu Yoga guru and his peaceful followers on the night of June 4. That event is indeed the turning point. Hindu India will never forgive her , nor should they ever forget. Since she has kept her Italian passport(as alleged) then one can only pray that she does not return from her recent trip to Switzerland.India does not need anymore mafia donnas !
Digvijay Singh offers a marked contrast. One could depict him as a clown, except the seriousness of his slippery slope is also an insult to the Rajput tradition of loyalty to their country and heroic history. One does not even dare to mention the sacred name of a Rana Pratap, in this context of a Rajput gone bad. Unlike Sonia he had a heroic tradition to look up to and live by. What actually happened is a different story altogether.
Congress’s attack dog is hiding behind the strength of his master/mistress’s temporary popularity. As her fortunes ebb, the rats will leave the sinking ship.No doubt he will be the first. Till then he has some time and he is making the most of it. One has to only look at the sorry spectacle of a Rajput demeaning a Hindu Yoga guru, while simultaneously speaking of Bin Laden as Bin Ladenji. It is also reported by one perceptive journalist that it was Chidambaram and the ex-Rajput who stood behind Sonia’s decision to attack Baba Ramdev.
The names this pitiful individual reserved for the Hindu Yoga Guru Baba Ramdev were ‘thug’ and ‘fraud’.
Under Sonia Gandhi’s 12 year reign of terror for the Hindus of India, this is possibly only one more example of anything goes. As long as it is someone from the majority community everything is fair game. But he is also playing a double game. During the satyagraha of the Yoga Guru in the first week of June, Digvijay Singh tried to fool the Hindu masses by using the phrase ‘ Hamare Sanatana Dharma’ (Our Sanatana Dharma). Who is he fooling? He is listed in the Wikipedia biography as Christian.* He is a convert, presumably.
Now, there are thousands of Indian Christians who have stayed loyal to Bharat. They merely changed their religion, but their ancestral memories (unlike Sonia’s) are of Bharat. And by and large they have remained respectful and even appreciative of their Hindu ancestry, except when misled by missionary propaganda. Digvijay is also in addition an anomaly as a Rajput ( he is listed as a Rajput in the biographical entry).
Hindu India must continue to challenge this fraud. He is seeking the Muslim vote in Uttar Pradesh. Hence his visits to the area soon after 26/11. Here he is also in sync with his protégé, Rahul Gandhi, who we are told was partying all night at a friend’s wedding on the night of 26/11. The mother son duo and their faithful lackey have no interest in Bharat.
No self respecting Rajput would have called a Hindu Guru, a thug ! Only a depraved fallen Rajput obeying the whims of his mistress would do that.

Swami Nigamanandji’s death due to fasting is a big shock. While politicians play one upmanship and try to find advantage even in death, what is disturbing is that practically no one knew about Swami Nigamanandji’s fast. Why the media did not pick up on this story for four long months is a question we need to ask. Why VHP did not highlight it? I do not know if they did but I have not seen any reports on it.
What is happening with our religious places which are also our cultural heritage sites is very troublesome. Whether it is the quarrying in the Ganga basin in Haridwar, building of a dam on Gangaji in earthquake prone area or illegal mining of Vrajbhumi, what is happening is the permanent loss of history and cultural heritage. This is no less than the menace of corruption and black money. The fight against corruption and black money would be won some day but by the time our nation wakes up to the disaster of ruins visited on our historical and cultural places, if it ever does, it would be too late. We can blame the Muslims invaders for vandalizing our shrines and centers of learning and rightly so, but who do we have to blame but our own Hindu people and politicians for the naked aggression on our heritage because of their insatiable greed?
I am grieved by the death of Swami Nigamanandji but I have come to a conclusion (and Dr. Subramanian Swamy said the same thing when Baba Ramdev broke his fast) that you can use fast as a weapon only against those who have a heart. In today’s aasuric and adharmic world, one has to use the appropriate weapons as were used by Shree Krishna and Pandavas. I am glad that Shree Krishna did not advice Yudhisthir to go on fast against Kauravas. Come to think of it, how many instances you can find in our scriptures where people went on fast to right a wrong?
Gandhiji made fasting fashionable but someone rightly said that Gandhiji was successful because his adversary were Britishers; had he tried to fast against Hitler, he would have been dead long time ago.
I do not care for what Digvijay Singh says because he is no better than a puppy dog of Madam Sonia. He has no credibility to pass judgment on what Hindus are doing after calling Ramdevji a thug and referring to bin Laden as Osamaji. The Uttarakhand government did move Swami Nigamanandji to a hospital, just as they did with Baba Ramdev. They should have paid serious attention to Swami Nigamanandji’s demands. It is a matter of great shame and pain that in free(?) and democratic (?), saints die because of total indifference of people in power to genuine grievances of people.
So far as the state government not stopping the quarrying is concerned, I would not pass a judgment without having all the information. When the central government is dragging its feet nay, putting all kind of road blocks in the path of having an effective Lokpal bill and bringing back the black money stashed abroad, why should we expect something different from any state government? They take their clue from their counterparts in New Delhi.
May Swamiji’s soul rest in peace and may his sacrifice not go in vain.
The Congress – Government face-off that is now publicly evident in the
manner in which Baba Ramdev was received by 4 ministers at the instance of
the Prime Minister and invited for negotiations at Claridges Hotel – only to
be followed by the volte face of Police atrocity against 50000 innocent
citizens at Ramlila Maidan in the dead of night of June 4.
Some points occurred to me and I am sharing my thoughts aloud. This follows
articles by me (Sandhya), Smt Nancy Kaul and Smt Radha Rajan on this subject
at www.vijayvaani.com <http://www.vijayvaani.com/> and subsequent exchanges
with friends. Setting aside all emotions, I personally feel that the episode
– Whatever overt power she may still exercise over Congress and
Government, Sonia Gandhi is on a weak wicket, which is getting weaker,
though this may not be readily apparent as yet
– In fact, Sonia Gandhi may derive more power from the pusillanimity
of the BJP and some RSS ‘thekedars’ who primed Baba Ramdev to lead a
movement that was destined to be aborted [by them, for her] and thus help
Sonia to maintain her stranglehold over the Government via the NAC and the
Anna Hazare-Lokpal agenda – except that that is moving towards utter failure
– Sonia Gandhi’s Western support base has fractured and she knows
it, which is why she is desperate to ram Rahul Gandhi into the PM post, but
this desperation is making her and Rahul make costly mistakes [like Muslims
are surely going to perk up to the fact that Christian surrogates are being
primed for the post, and they will let their resentment show in some way.]
– The political establishment in London and Washington can see that
she is politically in the ‘diminishing returns’ mode and that Rahul is a
non-starter. So they are unlikely to invest energy in her. Just as they
dumped the unpopular Mubarak so that they could stay put behind the scenes
in Egypt, so they will not give momentum to her fight with Manmohan Singh
and the sections of Government and Bureaucracy that are uncomfortable with
Sonia and her behaviour.
– That leaves Sonia Gandhi with only the Church (Vatican and all the
rest) and their approach is muscular and aggressive, as if India is Latin
America, and this mistake will prove costly for her.
– Sonia is left with very poor allies who determine her agenda in
public [because she does not speak so as not to commit herself to a position
from which she may need to resile later; ditto for Rahul Gandhi]. These are
Digvijay Singh [who never recovered from the shock of his defeat in MP],
Anil Shastri who attacks her enemies via the Congress mouthpiece, and Kapil
Sibal who is actually a lawyer and not a politician. There is not a single
Congress stalwart batting on behalf of Sonia Gandhi today, and hence she is
not going very far. Pranab Mukherjee, who is the Government troubleshooter,
quietly slunk away when he realised the agenda has shifted from Government
to Congress/Sonia, and that should tell us a lot. Even P Chidambaram is
keeping a low profile.
These are my random thoughts on the events of the past week, and I just
wanted to put them across.
June 11, 2011 7:24:17 PM
Previously, the Congress was able to brazen out scandalous truth through bullying, deceit, lying and political cunning. Now it hopes that by slandering Ramdev and the RSS, it will be able to put a lid on mounting allegations of corruption against the party and the Government.
The world is a battlefield. All great gurus and avatars have incarnated themselves throughout the ages to help the forces of good, which in India are called ‘dharmic’, against forces which are inimical to the Evolution of Humanity and which are called ‘adharmic’, or even asuric.
The concept of the asura in India is very different from the West. There is no such thing here as the black and white renderings of American cartoons or the Christian idea of a benevolent god and a cruel devil. Keen observers of human history may have noticed that very often asuric forces take on the face of goodness and charity, or use half truths or semi-lies to appear good. But in the end, the harm they do should make them recognisable to all.
In this light, we can discard Mr Digvijay Singh: He incarnates the world of sycophancy, which is a perversion of the Indian bhakti tradition. Or even Mr Kapil Sibal, a more intelligent man, but who got so perverted by a lawyer’s mind that lying has become a second nature to him. History will probably judge Mr Manmohan Singh as a weak man, who was ready to close his eyes on everything just to stay in power.
But what about Ms Sonia Gandhi? What are the forces which are using her, maybe even in spite of her? Let us discard all those evil avatars attributed to her, such as her being a KGB or a Vatican agent, rumours which have been floating around for a long time. We should not also look at her personality, what she projects, or what people say about her, not even at her deeds. No, it is the visible consequences of her overt and covert actions which should tell us a story. What are the consequences of her being the unelected supreme authority in India since many years, one whose one word or glance can have innocent people teargassed and beaten up?
Well the first sign is the increase in terrorist onslaughts since she came to power; the 26/11 terror attacks and the inability of the Government to respond to them — on the spot, and later — are the best symbols of her presence at the top. There has also been a tremendous increase in Christian conversions since she came to power, a radicalisation of Islam in India and a galloping Westernisation, which is fast eradicating Indian culture in cities and major towns.
But to my mind, it is the attack on Hindu gurus, which is the most representative sign of her adharmic reign. For in Ms Gandhi’s India, Hindu gurus are not only mocked at, but they can also be imprisoned, attacked, killed one day. Nobody would dare touch an imam if he preaches secession, nor even a Christian bishop, but gurus are fair game today.
Now Swami Ramdev, who incarnates an old tradition of spirituality in India, of all these gurus who throughout the ages have come to teach and preserve this ancient knowledge which takes the form of hatha-yoga, pranayama, meditation or Ayurveda. Is he perfect? How to judge a guru, who is to grade them? Sri Aurobindo, in one of his aphorisms, said something like this: “Even if god were to manifest himself in front of thy very eyes, you would not recognise him.” I am not able to judge Ramdev, but I can say with confidence that what he teaches is good, because it has benefited thousands of people.
Why then is he run down so much by the Congress whose leaders have gone as far as calling him a thug? Well it’s an old British tradition which has been taken up by the Congress and part of the media. French historian Daniélou summed it up well in his History of India: “The British-controlled Congress utilised to the hilt its English-speaking Press to present the Hindu Mahashaba, which attempted to counterbalance the Muslim League’s influence, or the even more maligned Ram Rajya Parishad, as barbaric, fanatical, ridiculous; and the British media in turn, took-up, as parrots, the cry of their Indian counterparts.” (Histoire de l’Inde)
In the case of Swami Ramdev, there are also accusations of an ‘empire’ worth hundreds of crores and even an island. Well a guru has to decide: Either he stays in a cave and looks after his own salvation, or if he has come to help humanity, he will have first a few disciples, then a few hundreds, eventually thousands. He has to feed them, organize courses, satsangs, launch sewa projects. You need money for all that. Donations come, bigger and bigger, as the good work of this particular guru comes to be known. The funds have to be managed, more and more money is needed and gurus end up being like the head of a multinational corporation, with a hundred projects, all sewa-oriented, to manage. I have seen it at close hand.
The fact that Ramdev got manhandled is nothing new. Gurus come to save humanity, but men either mock them or even crucify them. That is also in the nature of things.
So who will win this battle of Kaliyuga? Sri Aurobindo came to announce the Supramental: He said that as there was man after the animal, so would there come a superman after man. Not the superman of the Hollywood series, but a man who is closer to beauty, love, compassion. One of the main attributes of the supermind, he stated, would be truth.
This is why at the moment in India, the magnifying glass of truth is put upon men and events and falsehood comes out in the form of the stupendous scams that have happened in the last few years.
Previously, the Congress was able to brazen it out, through bullying, deceit, lying and political cunning. Will it be able to do so this time? We have seen how it hopes that by slandering Ramdev and his very nice assistant, planting rumors, using the eternal scarecrow of the RSS (those old fuddy-fuddies, who most of the time could not harm a fly), it hopes to put a lid on all the suspicions which are hanging over their head.
For the first beneficiary of the 2G or the CWG scams, is not the DMK, but the Congress. They are the ones who have institutionalised political corruption, the bribing of parliamentarians and elections which cost hundred of crores to elect a single MP.
If truth does triumph, then Ms Gandhi’s role will also come in the open, along with the truth about Italian middleman Ottavio Quattrocchi and the enormous covert funds the Congress is believed to be controlling. It may take time, but karma is inevitable. That is also an ancient Indian truth.

Two separate complaints were today filed in Punjab and Uttar Pradesh against Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh for allegedly calling Baba Ramdev a “thug”.
In Hoshiarpur, additional chief judicial magistrate Jaswinder Shimar accepted the complaint seeking registration of a criminal case under Sections 295A (deliberate and malicious acts intended to outrage religious feelings of any class by insulting its religion or religious beliefs), 500 and 501 (defamation) against Singh.
Advocate Ajay Gupta through his counsel R P Dhir, who is also president of the district bar association, claimed that Singh had hurt the religious sentiments of crores of people in general and Hindus in particular by calling Ramdev as a “maha thug”.
Digvijay Singh has also lowered the reputation of the yoga guru in the eyes of general public, he alleged.
The court has fixed June 15, 2011 as the next date of hearing when evidence of the complainant will be recorded.
Similarly, ACJM Preeti Srivastava in Lucknow registered the complaint against Singh and fixed June 24 for recording the evidence.
Ram Kishore, the Uttar Pradesh unit president of All India Forward Block, in his complaint claimed that Singh’s statement against Ramdev has hurt his sentiments.He requested the court to direct filing of a case against Singh under the relevant sections of the IPC.
Yesterday, a local lawyer had filed an application seeking direction for registering an FIR against Singh and Congress spokesman Janardan Dwivedi before the chief judicial magistrate court in Lucknow.
Shamsher Yadav Jagrana alleged that the scribe, who waved his shoe at Dwivedi, was beaten in public view. He also alleged that Singh has been making irrelevant statements.
