”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.
Sonia Gandhi: Sphinx who would be Pharaoh & When did Rahul Gandhi acquire identity of Raul Vinci? – Sandhya Jain
Given the thinly veiled nature of Sonia’s conflict with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh over his refusal to step down and make way for her chosen heir after the victory of May 2009, it is safe to assume that the Signora now expects party loyalists to cluster around her charmless prince-ling and ensure him a say in government as well. Political compulsions have forced discretion regarding the chairmanship of the UPA parliamentary party, and her personal vanguard, the National Advisory Committee (whose members will doubtless be feeling orphaned already).
The composition of the committee that is now to preside over the Congress and its interaction with government reveals everything about Sonia Gandhi’s intent, mindset and style of functioning. It is an open affront to the Prime Minister and his senior cabinet colleagues (particularly to all purpose trouble shooter Pranab Mukherjee), to all senior Congress leaders with vote catching abilities, and to the party and nation. As such, it is virtually designed to undo the objective for which it has been formed, viz., install the Amethi MP as de facto leader of the party, and at an early date in the future, as head of the Government as well.
Even by the standards of the factional politics she played when she decided to keep the then Prime Minister P.V. Narasimha Rao on tenterhooks throughout his tenure – which culminated in the party denying him a ticket to contest the next Parliamentary election, and then consigning him to oblivion – Sonia Gandhi’s designated committee is scandalously narrow. Worse, it is partisan against the Hindu community, a fact that would have been noted in the country as a whole.
Besides the non-Hindu Rahul Gandhi, who is obviously positioned as primus inter pares of the group, it comprises Defence Minister A.K. Anthony (supposedly for his clean image, but really because he is a Christian co-religionist and is therefore trusted more than other party veterans); her political secretary Ahmed Patel (a Muslim with no base in his home state of Gujarat, or indeed in any part of the country); and party organizing secretary Janardhan Dwivedi (a Patel acolyte and party spokesman with no base outside 24 Akbar Road).
Neither Rahul Gandhi, nor any among this group, is known for political sagacity, vision, and the ability to inspire the masses by winning votes, and thereby elections. Rahul Gandhi’s leadership qualities (sic) have already been tested in the waters of Bihar, Tamil Nadu and Kerala, and leave one speechless. His espousal of the farmers’ cause in Bhatta-Parsaul villages of UP was swiftly undone by revelations of State favours in land acquisition in Haryana for a Trust run by Sonia, Rahul, and Priyanka!
Yet Sonia Gandhi chose to shove aside all party veterans and trust such non-charismatic ‘nurses’ to propel Rahul Gandhi on a winning trajectory into the Prime Minister’s Office. Actually, the family miscalculated by refusing Dr Singh’s offer of a cabinet berth for Rahul in the recent cabinet reshuffle (though they would have been aware of Sonia’s ill-health by then), and now he is on a sticky wicket. Neither Dr Singh who sits in the Prime Minister’s chair, nor the seasoned Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee, who controls the Government’s purse strings, is going to forgive the calculated insult to their persons and their chairs.
Meanwhile, a number of questions arise about the secretive manner in which Sonia Gandhi went abroad for surgery on 2 August 2011. The excuse of excessive visitors disturbing patients in an Indian hospital is sheer arrogance; visitors do not get beyond the reception if one does not want them.
In January 2009 the Prime Minister underwent a well-publicized heart surgery at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences; Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar announced he was going to undergo jaw surgery for cancer some years ago. With India having some of the best oncologists in both private and public hospitals, the true reasons for Ms Gandhi opting to go abroad, and the nature of her illness, should be made known as soon as possible. Reports that she was operated upon at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center need to be confirmed or denied without further ado.
To begin with, there was simply too much secrecy. At first, on 31 July a small news item in a newspaper said Sonia was suffering from viral flu and would be back in Parliament on Thursday (4 August). That same day, Janardhan Dwivedi told reporters she had gone abroad the previous day and been operated upon successfully. When the timeline did not add up, this was amended and the operation placed in the future; then finally it was stated that the surgery was successful and that Sonia had left on 2 Aug.
More disturbing are the reports in the latest issue of India Today that the Gandhis habitually refuse to inform the Lok Sabha Secretariat about their foreign trips, though this is the established convention, even for personal visits. Thus, in June this year, Sonia Gandhi went to London and Italy. The same month, Rahul Gandhi celebrated his 41st birthday in London, and both reportedly went to Switzerland – where they reputedly did not visit the holiday district but the commercial centre of Zug, thereby setting tongues wagging amidst a nationwide furore over black money in Swiss banks.
When Dwivedi announced the formation of the uninspiring committee, observers were quick to notice the absence of Home Minister P Chidambaram and Rahul mentor-cum-general secretary Digvijay Singh. As Sonia does not seem to have had detailed discussions with the Prime Minister and senior cabinet colleagues about the status of her health and the issues pending before the government, political observers speculate that the UPA will have to postpone appointment of Governors in states with vacancies, and a decision on the Telangana issue. It remains to be seen, therefore, how long her ill-health can be allowed to paralyze the government.
Ra(h)ul (da) Vinci
Now that the Gandhi family has concertedly declared Rahul Gandhi as their official candidate for the leadership of the party and government, both of which they tend to regard as watan jagir, it would be appropriate for the nation to know everything it has a right to know about the Amethi MP cum wannabe PM.
To begin with – and the Prime Minister would do well to make the matter public without further delay – how and when did Rahul Gandhi acquire the identity of Raul Vinci?
As friendly journalists and newspapers were asked to acknowledge and dismiss the news that Rahul Gandhi has travelled abroad on a passport issued in the name of Raul Vinci, some questions deserve an answer: –
– Which Government issued the Raul Vinci passport? India or Italy?
– If it was Italy, does it also follow that Rahul Gandhi enjoys Italian citizenship by virtue of an old Roman law that bestows citizenship on the offspring of all children born to its native citizens? Note that Sonia Gandhi was an Italian citizen at the time her two children were born, and that the family has persistently refused to answer pertinent questions regarding their citizenship.
– The Government of India must now settle this issue in public – including the legality of the trio holding Indian passports, and contesting Indian elections.
– What are the names of the alleged parents of Raul Vinci in the fake passport and what is the place of residence given on that document? It should be made public on a Government website.
– Where is that passport now and how often and where has Rahul Gandhi travelled on it? All details should be made public on a Government website.
The specious plea that Rahul Gandhi assumed a false identity for security reasons will not wash: Benazir Bhutto’s son Bilawal studies abroad under his own name, as do the scions of other eminent families.
Then, Rahul Gandhi supposedly holds an M. Phil degree in Development Studies from Cambridge University, UK, though there is no information about when and where he completed graduate and post-graduate studies. To this day not a single person has surfaced anywhere in the world to say that Raul Vinci (his disguise) was his/her classmate at x y or z college.
Family acolyte and then Cambridge Master Amartya Sen defended the degree but refused to furnish details. Now, following revelations about the purchased Ph.D. degree of Saif Gaddafi, it seems that London routinely “takes care of” the academic credentials of political scions in the third world.
Raul Vinci is also supposed to have worked as financial consultant in London. No colleague has stepped forward to say where.
Yet this man wants to impose himself upon the nation as Prime Minister. He needs to be downsized.
And Sonia Gandhi, appropriately dubbed ‘the Sphinx’ for her dogged silence on all issues of public concern, would have realized that she was not born to be Pharaoh of India. This country is governed by the invisible ethos of Vikramaditya – the throne will move away when the utterly unworthy approach it.

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.

PTI | Hoshiarpur/Lucknow
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.
To give an idea of he scum we are dealing with.
Digvijay Singh recently addressed Osama Bin Laden as Osama ji and calling Baba Ramadev as a Thug.
(This was brought up one of the attendees at a conference we had).
A Letter to Digvijay Singh
You object to RSS and BJP supporting Baba Ramdev and Hijacking his agenda.
When Anna took it up you called him a non entity with no constitutional right to fight corruption.
You ascribed political and other motives to his team members.
Would you welcome the left front to join up & hijack the agenda as it were?
Or would you rather wish Karunanidhi to take it up instead?
May be Mayawati would be better qualified to fight corruption ( in your world view).
Old Sharad Pawar will in any case be the last man living to take up the agenda.
You will certainly not countenance former soldiers like me to be taking up the agenda or supporting Baba or Anna. May be I would be advised to play golf and enjoy a few pegs of whisky as behooves a perfectly nice veteran.
In any case who’s agenda is it to fight corruption?
Surely it not your agenda or that of the Congress.
But let me just contemplate a good congress man taking up this agenda of fighting corruption. What will you say then?
I expect you will surely advise him to submit his views to Sonia ji through the NAC. You well know that the UPA Government is not authorised to fight corruption without orders from the high Command, on the recommendations of NAC. Putting it to Manmohan or AICC would be futile. Will you then go along and confront her to get it allowed? Will Ahmed allow you a darshan or audience with the high command?
My most sincere advice to the Congress is to hijack Ramdev’s agenda, itself . Then there will be no need for anyone else to speak for India or against corruption.
Question bothering me really is; who is this unbridled bull and what is the congress to gain from letting him loose like a misguided missile? He is a failed and discredited politician. Everybody except Rahul knows that. Where does he hope to go from here?
Can any friend enlighten me on this , Please. I shall be most grateful.
