RSS Chief unveil plans to make India a Hindu Rashtra
Qazi Mizan: It has become clear recently that the RSS/BJP is making its agenda open. The agenda is to make India a Hindu nation by 2025 to mark 100 years of the foundation of the RSS. One of the outfits of the RSS, Hindu Janajagriti Samiti (HJS), and the offshoot of infamous Sanatan Sanstha founded by Pandurang Athawale is holding a seminar to this effect: the point of discussion is how to make India a Hindu country by 2023.
They see Adityanath’s coming to power in UP as the beginning of the Hindu Rashtra. The readers who might be unfamiliar with Sanatan Sanstha should know that this is the terrorist organisation that gunned down Dabholkar, Pansare, and Kalburgi. It claimed the responsibility of the killings. This organisation brainwashes the youths and makes them terrorists.
How would the Hindu Rashtra look like?
When the RSS/BJP talks about the Hindu nation, they ultimately talk about the rules of the Smriti, particularly Manu Smriti. They abhor the idea of India for all. For them, India belongs to the Brahmins, it was a dying wish of Tilak that he wanted the rule of the Brahmins back. He opposed the rights of the OBCs and SCs tooth and nail. The Hindu Rashtra will be run by the deep state in the form of RSS. Actually, though on the papers India is not a Hindu Rashtra, in practice, it is a Hindu Rashtra. The RSS is right at the centre of all powers. It is running the Government and it provides a steel frame to further its hidden agenda.
Why is Hindu Rashtra an impossibility?
The concept of the Hindu Rashtra is not tenable and it will lead to civil wars in India. The single reason behind it is that the Hindu society does not exist as a society. The Hindus are divided by the caste and they are less likely to unite as the Hindu to make one community and one society. However, the greatest advantage the RSS is having is in the form of creation of Hindu Political consciousness. This consciousness has been systematically created by the RSS and elites in the Congress fold that there is a “Hindu Political Class”. In reality, the Hindu political class also does not exist, but because of the party and election systems, the Hindu Political Class emerges. dalits and adivasis, are already feeling discriminated and marginalised. Instead of treating this amazing diversity as our strength, today we are being seen by the international community as increasingly insular, parochial, intolerant, racist and even fascist. The violence visited upon vulnerable sections reinforces the image of India as an imperfect democracy where all forms of dissent are discouraged and human rights trampled upon with impunity.
The Hindu political class do not emerge endogenously (from within), it appears exogenously (from without). As it cannot appear from within, it has to emerge from without. This process is very important to understand. The externality that creates the Hindu Political class is the Islam. That is the reason the Hindu fundamentalists pose Islam as anti-national and anti-Hindu. Given the history of Indian Islam, the trends are unique and that most of the Muslims in India are converted from the lower castes to escape the tyranny of the caste Hindus. The polarisation went so much further that India got divided into three different nation states.
India is being scorched by a brand of Hindutva that is “fanning the flames of division and fear across the country”, even as the people in power have failed to unequivocally condemn recent hate crimes in the name of religion.
