One of the greatest economists the world has ever known and one who is in the run for Nobel Prize for revolutionary economics - Sitaram Yechury, has come out with the following statement in his recent avant-garde article titled 'Tying Bharat up in knots' in the Hindustan Times: 'The culmination of the RSS's countrywide celebrations marking the birth anniversary of its longest serving Sarsanghachalak, M S Golwalkar comes ominously close on the eve of the 5th anniversary of the 2002 genocide in Gujarat. These celebrations triggered the eruption of communal violence in a number of places in recent weeks. In Karnataka, the whipping up of communal polarisation is being systematically undertaken. Reports of clashes have come in places like Mangalore, Bangalore, Chickmagalur, various cities in Madhya Pradesh which is also a BJP-ruled State. Similar reports are coming from Indore, Jabalpur and Mandsaur. The latest are the reports of widespread communal disturbances coming from Uttar Pradesh with violence rocking Gorakhpur, Maharajgund, Kushinagar, Basti and Assamgur. These centenary observations need to be seen in the context of the recent Lucknow session of the BJP where it adopted a strident communal pitch calling for the propagation of 'PRAKHAR' Hindutva. 'Am I running amuck? No. The fact is that if I have to be admitted as an Honourable and Esteemed Member of the Pseudo-Secular Corps of the Mafia of Mass Media in India, I have to begin this article only this way and in no other way.

The Godra incident has become the favourite hobby horse of pseudo-secular politicians belonging to the Congress, the CPI(M), the CPI, the RJD, The Lok Janshakthi, the DMK and all the 'lie loveless upon my faithless arms' allies forming part of the UPA coalition Government in New Delhi. As one of the known VIP minions of the CPI(M), Sitaram Yechuri has no other option but to bark loudly along with the rest of the pack. What amazes me is the fact that while Sri Guruji Golwalkar (1906-1973) passed away in 1973, the Gujarat riots took place 29 years later in 2002. But for Communists like Sitaram Yechuri, Time stands still.

No one can dispute the fact that because of the wanton outrage committed by the terrorist Muslims at Godra Railway Station, Narendra Modi was swept back to power by the united and determined voice of Gujarat. Even after his resounding victory in the elections, politicians like Sitaram Yechuri, ably abetted or assisted the anti-national and anti-social journalists belonging to the pseudo-secular mafia of mass media in India have been crying hoarse about the communal frenzy in Gujarat let loose by Narendra Modi and his Government.

The simple question to be asked is what has Sri Guruji Golwalkar Centenary to do with incidents of unprovoked violence let loose by the Islamic terrorists in India? It is well known that Sitaram Yechuri and his CPI(M) to which he belongs are known for their Islam-embracing, Christianity-coveting and Hindu-hating brand of electoral vote bank politics. Sitaram Yechuri's hatred for Hinduism and Sanatana Dharma in general and Sri Guruji Golwalkar in particular comes out in the following baseless and fraudulent typical Communist Party (CPI-M) statement in his article: 'Following the ban of the RSS after the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi, Golwalkar entered into an agreement with the Government seeking its withdrawal while assuring that the RSS would not play any political role in the future'.

This great and self-righteous champion of Bharat without Bharat Mata - in effect a betrayer of BHARAT MATA - seems to be blissfully ignorant of the letter sent by Sardar Vallabhai Patel to Sri Guruji Golwalkar in September 1949. In his letter Sardar Patel had referred to Communist machinations, which at that point of time meant the anti-national machinations of great communist leaders like P C Joshi, B T Ranadive, S A Dange, G Adhikari, P Sundaraiah, Somnath Lahiri, E M S Namboodripath, D S Vaidya and many other known Communist traitors right from the days of 'Quit India Movement'. These are the political progenitors of pseudo-patriots like Sitaram Yechuri and others of his ilk today. To come back to Sardar Patel's words in his letter to Sri Guruji Golwalkar in September 1949: 'In answer to the call of the times alone, please take a decision. I and all my co-workers have been striving from the very start to cooperate with you to bring the situation under control and make our Motherland invincible. ... I am thoroughly convinced that the RSS men can carry on their patriotic endeavour only by joining the Congress and not by keeping separate or opposing'.

When Sri Guruji Golwalkar was illegally detained without a trial from November 1948 to June 1949 under the notorious 'Bengal State Prisoners Act of 1818' (which Mahatma Gandhi and Nehru and the Congress Party had severely condemned as a Black Law before our independence), more than 80,000 Swayamsevaks of the RSS offered their peaceful Satyagraha throughout India and they were all detained without any trial in November 1949. 'The Statesman' of Calcutta in its issue dated 22 January 1949 wrote in its Editorial: 'The leaders of the RSS deserve to be praised for the manner in which they conducted the agitation and there is an imperative and urgent public need for the ban on the RSS to be removed immediately. The youth power of the country is being laid to waste by clamping them behind bars. They are idealistic, physically fit, imbued in the spirit of sacrifice and have the capacity to enhance the prestige of the country. How is it proper to keep such youth power in jail?'

As a true Communist wedded to the cause of his own brand of truth and falsehood, Sitaram Yechuri may be 'voluntarily' ignorant of the fact that the Minister for Home and Revenue, Government of Bombay, gave the following reply in the Bombay Legislative Assembly on 14 October 1949 in his reply to questions raised by Sri Lalubhai Patel from Surat District. The Minister said: - 1) The lifting of ban on RSS was unconditional and 2) Sri Guruji Golwalkar had given no undertaking to the Government whatsoever'. Against this background, I would request Sitaram Yechuri in my capacity as an unknown, superstitious, obscurantist, saffronized, communal, half-literate and half-savage Paganish Hindu, (but to Yechuri's dismay, in no way an official part of the Sangh Parivar!) to explain as to what he means when he says that Sri Guruji Golwalkar 'gave an undertaking' to the Government regarding the non-participation of the RSS in the field of politics! T.R. Venkatrama Sastri, former Advocate General of Madras in the 1920s (and not in the sucking days of Congress Party in post-independent India where such posts came to be conveniently bought and sold), has clearly recorded that no undertaking was ever given by Sri Guruji Golwalkar to Government of India either before his release in June 1949 or after it. For the elucidation of the ignorant and corrupt pseudo-secular leaders of India who are swarming our beleaguered nation today like a swarm of poisonous insects and stinging bees, I would like to clarify that it was T R Venkatrama Sastri who met Nehru and Sardar Vallabhai Patel on his own in 1949 and proved to both of them with facts and figures that the detention of Sri Guruji Golwalkar and the ban of the RSS were unwarranted, illegal, anti-national and anti-social.

K M Munshi was a Cabinet Minister in the Government of Jawaharlal Nehru in 1949. He wrote in the 'Organizer' dated 4 October 1949: 'Sri Guruji Golwalkar, the RSS Chief, is now on an all-India tour. The ovation which he received in Delhi for instance, is an indication that R.S.S. has come to stay. It is no use ignoring the fact'. In the same article, comparing the RSS with CPI, K M Munshi wrote: 'CPI is the enemy of Indian nationalism, tied to the chariot wheel of the USSR. RSS is fanatically nationalist, worshiping Bharat Mata with high-powered emotion, looking to ancient India alone for inspiration. CPI seeks to undermine the foundation of well-ordered life in order to bring about an upheaval. RSS builds up the foundation of an unyielding discipline to take over, should the nationalist movement fail before the CPI. CPI attracts young men by providing a romantic background of revolutionary zeal and young women - possibly a more dangerous - element by offering an alluring breakaway from normal disciplined life. RSS attracts young men by the lure of spectacular organizational life and a fanatic hatred of what they deem anti-Hindu. I do not know whether it has ever attempted to enlist the young womanhood in India. To CPI, Lenin, Stalin and USSR are the FATHER, SON and HOLY GHOST. To RSS, India is a Divine Mother, at whose altar self-immolation is bliss. What is USSR to CPI, ancient Bharat is to RSS. The Church of CPI is 'MATERIALISM'; the Church of RSS is 'DHARMA' buttressed with ancient traditions.'

It is very clear that all the pseudo-secular parties in India like the Congress, the CPI (M), the CPI and others have been completely rattled by the massive public support that people have given to the organizers of the Sri Guruji Golwalkar Centenary Celebrations in all parts of India from February 2006 to February 2007, cutting across caste, colour, creed and faith. Men like Yechuri are in the line of men like Hitler, Goering and Goebbels who were described appropriately by Winston Churchill as 'Repositories of some of the most virulent forms of soul-destroying hatred. Yechuri's hate for 'things Hindu' in general is greater than his known and naturally whipped-up hate for Bourgeois Dictatorship!! Whether Sitaram Yechuri likes it or not, the people of India have clearly shown during the Centenary Year of Sri Guruji Golwalkar that they have their full and indivisible faith in the mission of the RSS. Like the immemorial waters of the sacred Ganga, the RSS keeps rolling along - let it roll, let it roll on, full flood, true, benignant, inexorable, into broader lands and better days.
