Hindu Yuva Vahini


Hindu Yuva Vahini (Youth Brigade) came to AMU yesterday.

Earlier the local Member of Parliament Mr Satish Kumar Gautam had raised objections against a portrait of Muhammed Ali Jinnah hanging in the Union Hall of the University since 1938.

The HYV contingent was accompanied by the police. They were carrying local fire arms and after reaching the university gate called Bab-e-Syed they fired towards the Old Guest House that is adjacent to the gate.

Former Vice President of India Dr Muhammed Hamid Ansari was in the campus at that time and I do not know whether he was present in the Old Guest House's Kothi Number 5 or not.

The whole episode was triggered by his programme only. The Students Union of AMU had decided to confer the honourary life membership to Dr Ansari.

Same was done to Mahatma Gandhi and Muhammed Ali Jinnah in 1938.

Soon the students got the wind of the events at Bab-e-Syed. It was the day after Shab-e-Barat and mostly people were keeping fast and hence the campus bore a deserted look.

Around 3:15 PM I left the Department after a longish discussion with my research scholars. I had to take a detour to get out of the campus but still had to come towards the Bab-e-Syed and saw the congregation at the gate. These were mostly police personnel and outsiders. If there were students they were not much visible from out side.

The air was of pregnant silence. Whatever number of students were present could not have been aggressive at all for one could have seen and felt the ensuing commotion.

A few hours later I got the news that there has been Lathi Charge against and shelling of tear gas at the students.

Subsequently the social media has been rife with criticism of the CM Yogi Adiyanath for using unnecessary force against students.

A specimen of pugnacious Saffronite point of view



The venom we are facing in India can be sampled in this post.

Sudhanshu Lal's Post



These institutions are flag bearers of Anti-India activities in India .The infamous Tukde-Tudke gang and great respect for that pork-eating Mohammad Ali Jinnah in AMU .It is not a mere coincidence .It is deliberate and well designed ecosystem for destruction of Hindus. As I firmly believe that Hindus are "Labour Free Income Addict " have not learnt any lessons from history and like a dog like mental make-up and memory ,we forget our thousand years of extreme inhuman treatment in the hands of Muslims and Christians. It is good to forget and move ahead but without learning a lesson , then one is destined to witness the same inhuman treatment .

Any one can verify it by the nature of face book posts of Hindus and Mulla-Marxist-Missionery gang .Former is busy in posting Individual success stories , marriage photographs , My daughter did this and my daughter did that posts etc .Whereas this gang is busy in distorting the reality or building alternative without an iota of Shame or hang over or maintaining silence over issues which you all know . So they are defending or diluting our narrative which are centred around spirit of constitution but their narratives even justifying the most dreaded criminal act or supporting Islamic Jihad in Kashmir,Kerala , west Bengal,Kairana .
Narrative is the most powerful tool in the world .You will be surprised to know that one of theocratic Islamic state paid $14 billion dollar to Bloomberg foundation for running campaigns in the world media to portray the progressive image .
Britishers succeeded in India and successfully divided India through alternative narrative and created whole army of Hindu intellectuals who accept rather votary of British and Islamic narrative that India was civilized by them and whatever we know is because of them .Why these intellectuals succumbed to these fake narratives because of our genetic weakness for "Labour Free Income and Prestige ".

But the reality is that Christians and islamists did not have access to full square meal for centuries and when we had universities and important posts used to be filled through campus interview .

But we never allowed the knowledge to be shared among brothers on the basis of caste or birth-based discrimination that led to our destruction .This trait entered in our gene because we went on repeating for thousands of years so we still go on exploring the scope of "Labour Free Income &Prestige " .As a result we do not respect those who are farmers , sweepers, manual labourers , etc but they are enriching our lives . The fissures in our society have allowed the subscription of fake narrative among these victims of birth-based discrimination because in last seventy years ,similar feudal lords got birth among them also who deployed the similar model that gives them the scope of" Labour Free Income and Prestige ".

Global politics either through diplomacy or through institutions also aim to destroy spiritually original and robust society like India and other .

My countrymen always bear in mind that a handful islamists at the behest of Britishers succeeded in massacre of millions of India Citizen through alternative narrative and left genetic legacy in India to repeat the same by carrying forward the same narrative and conducted genocide of Hindus in Kashmir in 1990 .Neither courts not parliament could dare to lodge a single FIR. This genetic legacy once again deploying the tactics of narrative and some Hindus are in their camp supports that Barbaric Jinnah .Another important fact , we must bear in mind their capacity tolerate contradiction and capacity to lie are their strength. Example is Jinnah was fond of pork but become Baba-e-kaum of Sunni majority Pakistan and now portrait in AMU confirms that there are large number of people fond of him .

So destroy anti-india narrative mercilessly and tolerate some contradictions.

At the end of the day whole of India, I mean the India that does not subscribe to the Saffron denomination, will be guilty of at least allowing the Saffron agenda to run its full course.

Brahmin should be taken as the orchestrator.

After that there is this long list of people who are either in connivance or silent spectators or less than whole hearted opposer.

There are the Rajputs. The Vaishya's are full supporters. Then there are the Jats, Gujjars, Yadavs, Patels, Reddys and others of the ilk. These people had many who opposed the Saffron in one way or other like Lalu and Mulayam but there are active supporters of RSS, BJP, VHP, Bahrang Dal and the Hindu Yuva Vahini and Swadeshi Jagran Manch.

Then there are the Dalis who behaved in the most miserable manner. They really have not come to a very mature understanding of the ground reality. They have a truck with BJP at the latter's terms.

Then we have the Muslims, Christians and the Communists - the people targeted by the Saffron.

Then there is South India. Her full might against the Saffron bigotry has not yet come to the fore. If and when they come out into the open that will be the end of the Saffron heyday.

Saffron paradox: Hindutva supporters seem determined to prove that Jinnah was right

Pakistan’s founder feared that Muslims in India would be shut out of power. As it turns out, Muslim representation in the Lok Sabha is at an all-time low.

आरएसएस के बारे में दोबारा सोचो !


(Think Again About RSS)

(Facebook Post by Jagdishwar Chaturvedi, A Marxist Thinker from Mathura, India)

(Google Translation to follow.)

सवाल यह है आरएसएस ने जनता का दिल कैसे जीता ?क्या भारत संकीर्णतावादी देश है?

मेरे मथुरा में आरएसएस के जितने परिचित थे वे कभी गाली नहीं देते थे।मधुरभाषी थे,मिठाईप्रेमी थे,चाय पीना पसंद कम करते थे।फेसबुक के जन्म , इंटरनेट आगमन और आरएसएस के साइबर सैल के जन्म के साथ एकदम उलटा हुआ है आरएसएस वाले मधुरभाषी कम हो गए हैं,गाली देने वाले बढ़ गए हैं,पहले वे धमकी नहीं देते थे,अब धमकाते हैं।पहले उनके पास फोन तक नहीं होता था,अब स्मार्टफोन है,पहले वालों में आँखों की शर्म थी,नए संघियों के आंखें नहीं हैं।संघ बदला तो है !

मथुरा मुझे बार बार याद आता है संघियों के कारण,वहां संघी नेता से लेकर कार्यकर्ता तक सहज भाव से दिख जाते थे,मेरे मंदिर पर उनकी भीड़ रहती थी,मेरे घर के पास कव्वीबाई धर्मशाला में अटलजी से लेकर बलराज मधोक,नानाजी देखमुख से लेकर लालकृष्ण आडवाणी आकर टिकते थे।इसका एक बड़ा कारण था धर्मशाला वाले का संघी होना।इस धर्मशाला से एकदम जुड़ा हुआ मेरा घर है।इसके कारण मुझे संघ के बड़े नेताओं को एकदम अनौपचारिक तौर पर जानने का मौका मिला।दूसरा बड़ा कारण था मेरे हिंदी शिक्षक मथुरानाथ चतुर्वेदी का संघ का बड़ा नेता होना। उनके जरिए संघ के रीयल चरित्र को मैं सहज भाव से जान पाया।मथुरानाथजी जानते थे मैं कम्युनिस्ट हूँ,वे ही मुझे तमाम सोवियत प्रकाशन पढ़ने को देते थे, उन्होने कभी मुझे संघ के किसी नेता की किताब पढ़ने को नहीं दी,कहते थे संघ के नेता बहुत खराब लिखते हैं।
मैंने एकबार स्वामी करपात्री महाराज से पूछा कि आरएसएस के लोग कैसा लिखते हैं वे बोले जाहिल हैं वे लोग, वे सिर्फ मुनाफा कमाना जानते हैं।उल्लेखनीय है करपात्रीजी महाराज ने एक राजनीतिक दल भी बनाया था और वे जब भी मथुरा आते तो दिनमें एकबार मेरे मंदिर पर दर्शन करने जरूर आते और उनसे लंबी बातचीत भी होती थी।

आरएसएस वाले की सबसे बड़ी तीन कमजोरियां हैं एक तो वे किताबें नहीं पढ़ते दूसरा वे इतिहास नहीं जानते और तीसरा वे दलाली नहीं छोड़ते।
मथुरा में मेरे छात्रजीवन में एक जमाने में ढेरों मित्र आरएसएस के थे,एकबार उनलोगों ने जोर डाला कि मैं कभी उनके कार्यक्रम में भी सुनने आऊं, मैं राजी हो गया।कार्यक्रम था दीनदयाल उपाध्याय की जयन्ती का, मेरे मित्र बोल रहे थे और ठीकठाक दीनदयाल जी पर रोशनी डाल रहे थे, मैं अपने साथ दो और मित्रों को लेकर गोष्ठी में बतौर श्रोता ज्योंही दाखिल हुआ, वक्ता महोदय हठात विषय से भटके और मेरी शक्ल देखते ही चीन और समाजवाद को खरी खोटी सुनानी शुरू कर दीं, उसके बाद सारी गोष्ठी हम तीनों मित्र चीन के बहाने गालियां खाते रहे, गोष्ठी खत्म हुई तो कई श्रोताओं ने पूछा दीनदयाल उपाध्याय पर बोलते हुए चीन कहां से बीच में आ टपका ? अब हम तीनों की हँसने की बारी थी हम खूब हँसे ,मैंने कहा ये सज्जन मेरा चेहरा देखकर चीन और समाजवाद को गरिया रहे थे, वह बोला कि तुम्हारा चीन से क्या संबंध,मैंने कहा संघियों की यही मुश्किल है ज्योंकि किसी कॉमरेड को देखते हैं इनकी गाड़ी पटरी से उतर जाती है।उस घटना के बाद हमारे संघी मित्र ने हमें कभी संघ के किसी कार्यक्रम में नहीं बुलाया,हमने एकदिन मजाक में पूछा कि भाईजी,हमें अब सुनने को भी नहीं बुलाते हो, वे बोले साले तुम्हारी शक्ल देखकर हमारा वो कार्यक्रम चौपट हो गया,दिमाग का संतुलन पता नहीं कैसे बिगड़ गया,हमारे संघी साथियों ने हमारी तीखी आलोचना भी की ,तबसे हमने तय किया है तुमको अब कभी नहीं बुलाएंगे।हमने कहा हमें श्रोता के रूप में भी नहीं बुलाओगे,बोले बिलकुल नहीं ।

एकबार एक संघी वक्ता बोल रहा था और बार-बार मुसलमानों के संततिवर्द्धन पर लंबी लंबी हांक रहा था,भाषण समाप्त करके बोला हम कैसा बोले हमने कहा भाईजी आपको मुसलमानों की मर्दानगी के आख्यान बताते समय यह ख्याल ही नहीं रहा कि प्रकारान्तर से हिन्दुओं की नामर्दगी की दास्तां बयां कर रहे थे ! मेरी बात सुनकर उनको पाला मार गया !

आरएसएस वाले के दिमाग की सबसे कमजोर कड़ी है वामपंथी ,एकबार संघी को किसी विषय पर बोलने का मौका दो, वह जब बोल रहा हो तो उसे किसी तरह आभास दे दो कि आप वामपंथी हैं, वह तुरंत विषयान्तर करेगा और वाम निंदा पर उतर आएगा।इसके बाद आपको कुछ करना नहीं है,वह बिना पानी पिए इस तरह कोसना शुरू करता है जैसे उसे बोलने का ईंधन मिल गया हो।आप इसके बाद परमानंद में रह सकते हैं।
जब किसी भी संघी को वाम पदबंध सुनकर रक्तचाप बढ़ने की आदत हो तब बहस नहीं हो सकती सिर्फ निंदारस में मजा लिया जा सकता है।

आप मेरी बात मानिए और किसी भी आरएसएस वाले से सामान्य से सवाल करके देखिए आपको जो उत्तर मिलेेंगे वे हंसाने वाले होंगे, दिल दहलाने वाले होंगे,वे यह ज्ञान कराने वाले होंगे कि आखिरकार आरएसएस के हाथ में देश की बागडोर सौंपकर हम किस तरह कमअक्ल लोगों के शासन में जी रहे हैं।मैं आम तौर पर दिल्ली में आरएसएस प्रेमियों और कट्टर संघियों से सरकारी वाहनों में टकराता रहता हूँ और उनकी कमअक्ली का आनंद लेता रहता हूँ।
कोई व्यक्ति जब संघ की अंधी वकालत करता है तो उसे कुछ देर मुखर भाव से बोलने दो वो अपने आप अपना विलोम बनाने लगता है।

रामलाल ने एक दिन अपने पड़ोसी आरएसएसवाले से पूछा तुम्हारे पास जब खाली समय होता है तो देशहित के बारे में सोचते हो या आरएसएस के हित के बारे में तो वह बोला संघ के हित के बारे में सोचता हूँ,फिर उसने पूछा इससे देश का भला होता है या आरएसएस का ,वह बोला आरएसएस का ! इसी तरह एक व्यक्ति ने आरएसएस वाले से पूछा तुमको विवेक पसंद है या भगवान, वह तुरंत बोला भगवान! इसके बाद हम सबलोग खूब हंसे।संघी बोला हंस क्यों रहे हो ? दूसरे व्यक्ति ने कहा तेरी अक्ल पर!एक अन्य अनुभव है,
एक व्यक्ति ने आरएसएस वाले से पूछा तू मनुष्य है या संघी है, बोला संघी हूँ,बस हम सब बस बैठे हंसने लगने !
आरएसएस को बुद्धिजीवियों से नफरत है, उसे मुसलिम घृणा का कॉमनसेंस पसंद है।संघ के समूचे प्रचार में इस कॉमनसेंस की प्रस्तुतियों रहती हैं।

दिलचस्प बात यह है विगत 10 सालों में शिक्षितों का एक बड़ा हिस्सा आरएसएस से जुड़ा है, इनमें अनेक गंभीर पढ़े लिखे लोग भी हैं, वे भी संघ की अभिव्यक्ति रणनीति को फेसबुक और मीडिया में इस्तेमाल करते हुए कॉमनसेंस के फ्रेमवर्क में हर क्षण पोस्ट लिख रहे हैं।संघ के ट्रोल ने बुद्धिजीवियों की भूमिका को बुनियादी तौर पर बदल दिया है।
आज संघ ने बुद्धिजीवी की पहचान का मूलाधार झूठ को बना दिया है, जबकि एक जमाने में सच बोलने वालों को बुद्धिजीवी कहते थे।झूठ और मीडिया की अंतर्कियाएं मिलकर ऐसा वैचारिक रसायन बना रही हैं जिसमें सिर झुकाकर मानने के अलावा और कोई विकल्प सूझ नहीं रहा।
संघ कह रहा है सब मान रहे हैं तो तुम भी मानो।सब यही बात कह रहे हैं तो तुम भी वही बात मानो। विचार विमर्श में भीड़ को इस तरह स्थापित कर दिया गया है। पहले बुद्धिजीवी अपनी राय भीड़ को देखकर तय नहीं करते थे।

आरएसएस का सबसे बड़ा झूठ यह है कि उसने अपने को लोकतंत्र के रक्षक के रूप में पेश किया है,जबकि वास्तविकता यह है कि उसने लोकतंत्र का हिन्दुत्व और साम्प्रदायिक विचारधारा के प्रसार के लिए दुरूपयोग किया है,यह वैसे ही है जैसे स्मगलरों ने समाज के अपराधीकरण के लिए लोकतंत्र का दुरूपयोग किया। कुछ मामलों में आरएसएस के काम करने के तरीके और माफिया गिरोहों के काम करने तरीकों में विलक्षण साम्य है।दोनों का समान लक्ष्य है प्रशासनिक संरचनाओं पर कब्जा जमाना।
आरएसएस की लोकतांत्रिक संरचनाओं के विकास में जीरो भूमिका रही है। जहां भी उसे सरकार बनाने का मौका मिला है,स्थापित संस्थानों को बधिया बनाया है।प्रशासनिक संरचनाओं और पुलिसबलों का साम्प्रदायिकीकरण किया है। जबकि लोकतंत्र के विकास के लिए प्रशासनिक संरचनाओं के विकेन्द्रीकरण और उदारीकरण की जरूरत थी,अफसोस यह है कि कांग्रेस इस चीज को रोकने में अक्षम रही है।एकमात्र वामशासित राज्यों में प्रशासनिक संरचनाओं के साम्प्रदायिकीकरण में उसे सफलता नहीं मिली।

आऱएसएस ने राजनीतिक दोगलेपन को महानतम बनाया है।

आरएसएस के वैचारिक असर में कांग्रेस से लेकर माकपा तक सभी हैं। कांग्रेस नरम हिन्दुत्व का राग अलाप रही है तो माकपा ने केरल से लेकर बंगाल तक बाबा रामदेव के योग प्रकल्प को प्रमोट करके नरम हिन्दुत्व के अन्य रूप को प्रदर्शित किया है,वहीं समाजवादियों में भी संघ के प्रति वैचारिक आत्मीयता गहरी हुई है।हम सब भूल ही गए कि योग को आरएसएस ने बड़े कौशल के साथ अपने वैचारिक प्रसार के औजार के रूप में इस्तेमाल किया, हमने उसे महज व्यायाम माना और मान लिया।योग प्रकल्प असल में संघ का प्रकल्प है।

आरएसएस ने सचेत रूप से अपने वैचारिक फैलाव के लिए संघ के नेताओं के विचारों के प्रचार को गौण रखा है और गांधी-पटेल-आम्बेडकर आदि नए नेताओं का जमकर प्रचार किया है।इससे उसके कार्यकर्ताओं के वैचारिक चरित्र पर असर पड़ा है।साथ ही आम जनता में संघ की लिबरल इमेज बनी है।
आरएएस के वैचारिक खेल पर विचार करते समय इस सवाल पर सोचें कि भारत का भविष्य संकीर्ण हिन्दू व्यवस्था या हिन्दू की पहचान अर्जित करने में है या उदारपंथी नागरिक बनने में है? आखिरकार हम 100 साल बाद कैसा देश देखना चाहते हैं ,हिन्दू भारत या उदार भारत।

RSSसचेत रूप में विचारधारात्मक तौर पर बदल रहा है,वह पुराने संघी विचारकों के साथ-साथ नए बुर्जुआ विचारकों को भी अपनाने लगा है,इससे नए किस्म की विचारधारा पक रही है,उसकी ओर देखने की जरूरत है।आमतौर पर हम उसके बुर्जुआ नेताओं के प्रति प्रेम को नाटक कहकर खारिज करते हैं लेकिन इस क्रम में नया वैचारिक ढांचा और संरचनाएं बन रही हैं जिनकी कायदे से मीमांसा करने की जरूरत है।

सवाल उठता है आरएसएस ने उदारतावाद और धर्मनिरपेक्षता के खिलाफ आम लोगों में जहर कैसे भरा और लोग क्यों आरएसएस के तर्कों को मान रहे हैं,जबकि उसके तर्कों का विरोध करना चाहिए।

Think about RSS again!


(Google Translation of a Facebook Post by Jagdishwar Chaturvedi, A Marxist Thinker from Mathura, India)

The question is, how did the RSS win the hearts of the people? Is India a preservative country?

The people who were familiar with the RSS in my Mathura never abused. They were sweet-spoken, sweet, used to drink tea. The birth of Facebook, the advent of the Internet and the cyber cell of the RSS is completely opposite with the birth, They are reduced, those who have abused have increased, they did not threaten, they threaten now. First they did not even have a phone, now there is a smartphone, the first ones were ashamed of the eyes; Sanghis is not Hanksng changed eyes!

Mathura reminds me repeatedly due to the conflicts, there was a sense of humor from the Sangh leader to the worker, he used to be crowded on my temple, from Atlaji in Kavibibai Dharamsala, Balraj Madhok, Nanaji Viewmukh, near my house. LK Advani used to come and come.This was one of the major reasons for being the unionist of the Dharmashali. It is my house that is connected to this Dharamsala. That is why I am totally unaware of the big leaders of the Sangh There was an opportunity to know informally. The other big reason was that my Hindi teacher Mathuranath Chaturvedi was the leader of the League. Through them I learned the true character of the Sangh. Muthuranathji knew that I was a communist, he used to give me reading all Soviet publications, he never gave me any book of any leader of the union, he used to say, The leaders write very bad.
I once asked Swamy Karpathri Maharaj how people of RSS write, they say, they are people who say they only make profits. It is worth mentioning that Karpatriji Maharaj had also created a political party and whenever he came to Mathura, once in my temple But they used to come to visit and had long conversations with them.

The RSS has three biggest weaknesses: one does not read books, they do not know history, and thirdly they do not leave the brokerage.
In my student life in Mathura, a lot of friends were at the time of the RSS, once they insisted that I would listen to them in their program, I agreed. The program was called Deen Dayal Upadhyay's Jayanti, my friends were speaking and fine Deendayal Gaya was putting light on, I went to the audience as a listener for two more friends with me, the speaker departed from the topic of persistence and saw my face Only China and socialism started listening to falsehood, after which all the three friends of ours were eating slanders by China, when the seminar was over, many listeners asked, "Where did China come in between talking about Deendayal Upadhyay?" Now the three of us were laughing. We laughed, I said, this gentleman was gaining China and socialism by looking at my face, he said, what relations with your China, I said it is difficult for the federations as they see a comrade. The train descends on the track. After that incident our associate friend did not call us in any program of Sangh, we jokingly asked one day that Bhaiji, we can not even hear it. When we call them, they say that our program is quadrupled by seeing your face; the balance of the mind, do not know how deteriorated, our Sangh sympathizers also criticized us, since then we have decided that you will never call us now.We said we Not even in the form of listener, do not say no.

Once a Sangh speaker was speaking and repeatedly speaking on the issue of Muslims, we spoke about how we spoke and said, Bhaiji, while telling you the sermon of the masculinity of the Muslims, it is not worth the feeling that the Hindus of Namdhig The tales of hell were talking! He listened to me and got them crushed!

The leftist is the weakest link to the RSS's mind. Left, once the Sanghi has a chance to speak on some subject, if he is speaking, then somehow he should think that you are a leftist, he will instantly take a dignified voice and come back to the condemnation. After this you do not have to do anything, he starts accumulating without water, like he has got the fuel to speak. You can live in bliss after this.
When any Sanghi has a habit of increasing blood pressure after hearing the left pad, then the debate can not be taken only in the nandaras.

You listen to me and look at any RSS person with a general question. The answers you get will be laughing, they are going to be laughing, they will be going to get the knowledge that after finally handing over the reins of the country to the RSS, I am usually living in the government's rule. I usually bump into government vehicles from the RSS lovers and fanatic groups in Delhi and enjoy their poor ache Vendor I lived.
When a person advocates the blindness of the Sangh, let him speak for some time in a whisper, and he starts making himself an inverse.

Ramlal asked one of his neighboring RSS people, when you have a free time, think about the country's interest, or think about the interest of the RSS, then he thinks of the good of the Sangh, then he asked, it would have been good for the country. Or RSS, he said the RSS! Likewise, a person asked the RSS person, you like discretion or God, he immediately said God! After this we all laughed. Why are you talking swan? The other person said on your wish! There is another experience,
One person asked the RSS person that you are man or Sanghi, I am a Sanghi, all of us just sit and laugh!
The RSS hates intellectuals, it is the common choice of Muslim hatred. In the entire campaign of the Sangh, there are presentations of this common sense.

Interestingly, in the last 10 years, a large part of the educated is affiliated with the RSS, there are many highly educated people, they are also using the Expression Strategy of the Sangh using Facebook and Media, writing posts every time in the framework of the Commonwealth The troll of the Sangh has basically changed the role of intellectuals.
Today, the Sangh has created the basic idea of ​​identity of intellectuals, whereas at one time the people who spoke the truth were called intellectuals. The interactions of the lie and the media are making such a conceptual chemistry in which there is no other option than to bow down. .
The Sangh is saying all that you are saying, then you too believe it. All are saying the same thing, then you too think the same thing. The crowd has been established in such a way in the discussions. First, the intellectuals did not decide their views by seeing the crowd.

The biggest lie of the RSS is that he has presented himself as the protector of democracy, whereas the reality is that he has misused the Hinduism of democracy and the spread of communal ideology, it is as if the smugglers are in the society Misuse of democracy for criminalization. In some cases, the methods of working of RSS and the methods of working of the mafia gang have a singular equality. The common goal of both is to capture the administrative structures.
The RSS has played a vital role in the development of democratic structures. Wherever he has a chance to form the government, established institutions have been defrauded.The administration has communalized the administrative structures and the police forces. While there was a need for decentralization and liberalization of administrative structures for the development of democracy, the regret is that the Congress has been unable to stop this thing. In the only Left ruled states, it was not successful in communalization of administrative structures.

RSS has made political doublesness the greatest.

The ideological impact of the RSS is all from the Congress to the CPI (M). While the Congress is melting down the soft Hindutva, the CPI (M) has displayed another form of soft Hindutva by promoting Baba Ramdev's yoga project from Kerala to Bengal, while socialists have also deepened the ideological affinity towards the Sangh. We all forget It has been said that the yoga used by the RSS as a tool of its conceptual expansion with great skill, we considered it as mere exercise and believed. P Actually Union project in.

The RSS has consciously kept the propaganda of the ideas of RSS leaders for its ideological dispersal and has strongly campaigned for the new leaders like Gandhi-Patel-Ambedkar. This has affected the ideological character of its workers. In the public, the Liberal image of the Sangh has been formed.
When considering the ideological game of RAS, think about the question that India's future is in acquiring a narrow Hindu system or Hindu identity or is it in becoming a moderate citizen? After all, what country do we want to see after 100 years, Hindu India or liberal India?

RSS is changing consciously in an ideological form, it has started adopting new bourgeois thinkers as well as new bourgeois thinkers, it is creating a new kind of ideology, needs to look at it. In general, we have the bourgeois leaders Dismissed love as a play, but in this sequence, new conceptual structures and structures are being formed, which need to be guided by the law.

The question arises, how the RSS filled the poison among common people against liberalism and secularism and why people are adhering to RSS's arguments, while opposing its arguments.

Former President Pranab Mukherjee accepting an invite from the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh to be the chief guest at a function at the Sangh headquarters on June 7 snowballed into a row with a former Union minister urging him to reconsider his decision in the interest of secularism.

While the Congress refrained from making a comment on the issue, a party leader asked if the RSS accepted what the former president said as a minister and Congress leader about the Sangh being the 'worst' outfit which was 'communal', 'anti-national' and 'unpatriotic'.

While Union minister Nitin Gadkari defended Mukherjee's decision saying the RSS is not Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence and an 'untouchable' and it was a 'good beginning'.

The RSS, on its part, claimed even Mahatma Gandhi and Jaiprakash Narayan attended their functions and former prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru had invited its workers for the Republic Day parade in 1963 after being impressed with its work.

Former Union minister C K Jaffer Shareif, in a letter to Mukherjee, expressed surprise over the move and said he like other secular people was 'stunned' to hear about his attending the RSS function.

'I personally think that a person of your stature, being secular and in politics for decades, having served in various capacity including the highest position of Rashtrapati, visiting Sangh Parivar at this point in time before Parliament elections is not proper.

'Congressmen besides secular people are stunned to hear the news and are agitated on the situation and are hopeful that yourself will reconsider the idea.

'I once again request you to reconsider and avoid visiting Sangh Parivar in the interest of secularism and the country,' Shareif said in his letter which was also signed by former MP H Hanumanthappa.

"No comments," was Congress spokesperson Tom Vadakkan's response when asked about Mukherjee visiting the RSS headquarters.

He said since the event is yet to happen he would not comment on it and the Congress will formulate its thoughts once the event takes place.

"The event has not happened. I have come to know about it from media reports and am collecting further details. At present I have no comments to offer till the event takes place," he told reporters at the All India Congress Committee office.

Former MP and Delhi Congress leader Sandeep Dikshit said as a Congress leader and minister, Mukherjee has spoken about the RSS and the Bharatiya Janata Party many times on various issues and dubbed it as 'bad' and 'worst' outfit, which is 'communal' and 'anti-national'.

"Pranab Mukherjee used to say that the RSS is the worst organisation in the country. Its leaders have no morals and RSS is corrupt and spreads lies. He (Mukherjee) has also said that the RSS is anti-national, unpatriotic and communal.

"If the RSS has invited a person with such views, does this mean that the RSS admits that his (Pranab's) views about the organisation were correct," Dikshit asked.

Dikshit is the son of former Delhi chief minister Sheila Dikshit.
Earlier, at a press conference in Mumbai, Gadkari said, "The RSS is not Pakistan's ISI. The RSS is an organisation of nationalists."

"Mukherjee's acceptance of the invitation is a good start. Political untouchability is not good," he said.

Amid the raging debate over Mukherjee's address at the RSS event, the RSS said the likes of Mahatama Gandhi and Jaiprakash Narayan have attended its functions in the past.

RSS joint spokesperson Narinder Thakur in a statement said that even former Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru had also invited its workers for the republic day parade in 1963, as he was impressed by their work.
Vadakkan said there is a lot of difference between their ideology and that of the RSS and never shall there be any compromise on that.

Asked about the RSS statement that even Mahatma Gandhi has attended the Sangh headquarters, the Congress leader said 'everyone knows about the specialisation of the RSS and the BJP on history. I would not comment on it'.
Mukherjee, who has been a Congress veteran, has been invited to be the chief guest at the valedictory function of Sangh Shiksha Varg -- a training camp for the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh volunteers -- at the RSS headquarters in Nagpur, scheduled on June 7.

The former president has accepted the invitation, an RSS functionary said on Monday.

Darshan Mondkar on Alcoholic AMU Abusers



The AMU (Aligarh Muslim University) fiasco:

A heated discussion has arisen on the social media with people throwing around half baked versions of their own stories and perhaps its time to put things into some sort of a perspective of my own.

The Story:

Three guys and one girl met another guy near they AMU campus for dinner and drinks. The three guys and the girl are supposed to be rather nice people, they are known atheits (atleast three of them are) and are known to criticize religion rampantly on their fb profiles.

The guy whom they met calls himself an atheist but his posts reeks of Islamophobic posts which are aimed more at being derogatory towards the religion than being critical of certain practices. This guy is also a close associate of Tarak Fatah, and anyone knowing TF would know what this means.

After the dinner, this guy posted a pic on the Social media of him drinking with these four people which was put up with a caption which was a direct derogatory attack on the Muslims, as per them.

What Followed:

The AMU students grouped together and highlighted this said post, while confirming that they planned to take action against these three guys and girl (who are deemed as AMU students, not confirmed).

The friends of these guys, however, went about on the social media asking people to stand up for the "Right To Offend" of these four people.

The AMU students actually filed a FIR with the police station against three of these four people. The guy who was actually instrumental in making the original post was not included in the FIR (to the best of my knowledge).

The AMU stand:

The AMU students claim that this is a deliberate attempt to malign and offend their religious sentiments and that as these guys have the right to offend their sentiments, they also have the right to follow the due course of law and file and Police complaint under the valid sections of IPC.

The Three Guys and Girl's Friends stand:

The friends maintain that they have a right to abuse and make derogatory comments against anyone but there should be no reactions to such abuses and people should sit and listen. So basically, I can abuse you and call you names and you cannot file a defamation suit against me.

The Death Threats:

It was also claimed that death threats were issued against the three guys and the girl. As far as I have checked I did not come across any death threats issued on social media. The best I could find was someone saying, "Aastin ke saap ko maaro" which is as much of a death threat as saying "Killing two birds with one stone" is attempted murder. If however any death threats were made to these people which I havent come across, they are highly condemnable.

The Aftermath:

Two Guys (out of the three) and one girl have submitted written and/or videographed apologies. They, in their apologies, have clearly stated that the post made was offensive and they have dissociated themselves from the post on the basis that they hadnt made it but were unwitting parties to it.
The FIR made by the AMU students still stands.

My Take:

Religion is a personal business. A secular constitution gives us the right to practise our religions in our own space as long as it is not imposed on others.

Freedom of Expression gives everyone the right to say and do anything, however the IPC and the Constitution itself restricts us from being abusive an derogatory about any religion with the deliberate intention to offend it.

The three guys and the girl appear to have unwittingly walked into a neatly laid trap by the person who made the post, whose intentions have always been to malign one particular religion and take a perverse pleasure out of doing so.

The three guys and the girl could have complained to the Police and sought their protection against the death threats which they have allegedly recieved. But they didnt do so. This might be because

(a) No credible threats of such nature were directly issued to them which can be cognizable offences.

(b) The people are scared and want this matter to end.

If the (a) holds true, then this is a much ado about nothing. If threats were not given, then it was one person abusing another religion and the other person filing a case about it under the provisions of the law. Both doing what they felt is the best thing to do without resorting to non-constitutional or illegal means.

If (b) holds true, then such death threats are absolutely condemnable and they people should file a police case instead of apologizing, especially in a country and a state which is ruled by the RW governments at the moment where they would be assured protection against the "Muslim Fanatics"

However, one should always remember that if you go about offending religions because you think its well within your Rights and Freedom of Expression, then you might as well have the spine to stand up for what you have done. And if you are going to apolgize for it later on and accept that it is derogatory and abusive then dont do it in the first place.

Disclaimer: It is rather sad to see young impressionable minds being influenced, manipulated and misled by some smart people with an agenda, who then leave these people to face the flak ,in real life, all by themselves while they themselves are more interested in getting Likes and Shares on their posts in an attempt to detect and find more such young impressionable people. The names have not been taken because these people are in enough trouble already, without me having to add up to those

Eid-ul-Fitr This Year


Eid-ul-Fitr, the biggest Muslim festival is a simple affair.

Two units of prayer after the sunrise and your about done.

Of course those sweet dishes are part of the game. No doubt. Do not let go of these. (See doctor threatened me with diabetes this year - so just in case.)

My non-Muslim friends should take special note of this. The communal and fascist forces have done their bit and now is the time for us rest to take our revenge. Enjoy Eid-ul-Ftr like there is no tomorrow and enjoy Diwali and Chrismas and Lohdi and all that in the same way.

And by the way this hugging on Eid is not part of the agenda. Of course it is not a forbidden thing either.

The post sunrise two units of prayer, one unit of prayer takes only about a minute, is supposed to be held in an Eid-Gah. This is a special Mosque outside the population. All of us in India have seen these scattered all over the country.

This year I decided to offer my two units of post sunrise prayers of Eid-ul-Fitr in the University's Jama Masjid. This is magnificent Mosque whose pics I have posted earlier. It is a replica of Delhi's Jama Masjid as well as Lahore's Badshahi Mosque. And too boot it has Arabic Qura'nic Verses calligraphy by the same artist whose calligraphy you see on the facade of the Taj Mahal. (You can see the vision and planning of Sir Syed Ahmed Khan in action in this detail.)

As I approached the University Circle on my scooter I realized my mistake. I should have been walking on foot. Countless others were doing the same. I soon realized what a nuisance I might have been to others. Bigger nuisance were the people in cars.

From University Circle on wards it was a continuous and milling crowd. On the road side, deep into the University Campus, via Faiz Gate adjacent to Bhikampur Gate, there were large number of beggars, mobbing those silly ones who foolishly thought of obliging them.

On the right is the back or the other side of the Registrar office while on the left we have the University Nursary. Beyond the Nursary we have the University Health Service and the Medical Attendance Scheme. On the right side we have first the ABK Union School for the Girls and after that the SS Hall South starts. The University Mosque is at the joint of the North and South SS hall - Sir Syed Hall.

Ideally there need not be any Sir Syed Hall, Bab-e-Syed, Bagh-e-Syed, Sir Syed Academy or the Sir Syed Mosque and the University Mosque is also known. The reason is that the whole university is a monument to the genius and vision of the great personality. Sir Syed House of course should be Sir Syed House for that was his house.

By the time we reached the entrance to SS Hall South I had to park my scooter on the road side and enter through the famed Victoria Gate. This is a piece of architecture straight out of colonial era. It is grand and magnificent in its own right and dwarfs you by its proportions.

But not today. Today the crowds are in multitudes. A giant building with milling crowds around it is brought in perspective its proportions are well matched. This is what was happening now.

As we enter the Victoria Gate and find ourselves in the interior the corridors of the East wing and Corridors of the West Wing of the Hall are already completely occupied by the smarties who came earlier. They have no intention of praying for two minutes in the sun.

The famed Stretchey Hall is just infront of us - bang in the middle of the wing separating the symmetrically constructed SS North and South Halls. The Mosque is on the left end of the middle wing contaning the Stretchey Hall and the Mushtaq Manzil.

The wide road in front of the Stretchey Hall leading to the Mosque is already occupied. There might be place in the interior of the Mosque because people usually do not explore inside. I too am reluctant to do so. Like the rest of the people arriving in my section of the crowd I too head for one of the four big lawn of the South Hall, the nearest to the Mosque. I find a place in between the rows made by the people, not the administration, to lay my prayer mat. Very quickly the lawn is filled.

Combined crowd. South, North and the Mosque compound, must be somewhere between ten to twenty thousand people. Three main feeders of the double Hall are Victoria Gate, Bab-e-Salam and Bab-e-Ishaq. It is pronounced as Is-haaq and not as Ishaaq.

Few kites/falcons are doing the rounds of the sky. Crows and wild pigeon are crossing their air highways. Fly catchers and thrushes too can be spotted. Somewhere a chrpy bird is making such a piercing sound that it would be easily heard even by the crowd in the North side of the Hall. Soon it leaves her perch and can be seen in the air. It is a really small bird that was making disproportionate sounds. I hoopoe crosses skies on our left side. You hear various other birds intermittently.

The Imam is making the pre-Prayers sermon in Urdu. Maulwis as a rule do not comment at current affairs at all. This time it is an exception. He is talking about the condition of Muslims the world over including Palastine and Burma. He refers to internal issues of the Muslims in India. The surprising thing for me is that he has absolutely no burden, pressure, tension because of what we have gone through. He is cool and calm.

Then it was 7:30AM and the Prayer formalities began.

Monumental Absence

The destruction of ancient Buddhist sites

By DN Jha

Nalanda was severely damaged in a fire set by Hindu fanatics, yet its destruction is popularly attributed to the Mamluk commander Bakhtiyar Khilji. Although Khilji sacked a nearby vihara, he never went to Nalanda.

Over his decorated career as a historian, DN Jha has devoted himself to examining flawed views of India’s ancient and medieval past—many of them produced by colonial thinkers—that sustain the Hindu nationalist project. One of his most notable books, The Myth of the Holy Cow, documents the widespread prevalence of beef-eating in ancient India. Another, Rethinking Hindu Identity, argues that the notion of Hinduism as a religion is a colonial construct.

Jha’s new book, Against the Grain: Notes on Identity, Intolerance and History, is a collection of essays that, as he writes, “are addressed to the people vulnerable to the balderdash peddled by the Hindu Right.” In this essay, excerpted from the volume, he applies his characteristic combination of polemic and rigour to a greatly disregarded part of Indian history, and points to evidence that shatters the Hindutva notion of a pre-Islamic idyll on the subcontinent.

HINDUTVA IDEOLOGUES look at the ancient period of Indian history as a golden age marked by social harmony, devoid of any religious violence, and portray the middle ages as a phase of a reign of terror unleashed by Muslim rulers on Hindus. Central to their perception is the belief that Muslim rulers indiscriminately demolished Hindu temples and broke Hindu idols. They relentlessly propagate the canard that 60,000 Hindu temples were demolished during Muslim rule, though there is hardly any credible evidence for the destruction of more than 80 of them. On the other hand, even a cursory survey of historical evidence shows that the demolition and desecration of rival religious establishments, and the appropriation of their idols, was not uncommon in India before the advent of Islam.

There existed many Brahminical and non-Brahminical religions and their sects in ancient India. Their adherents were not always friendly and mutually accommodative, but were, in fact, very often hostile to one another. The two Brahminical sects, Vaishnavism and Shaivism, fought among themselves, and they both were constantly at loggerheads with the followers of the Shramanic religions—Buddhism and Jainism. Here, I present a limited survey of the desecration, destruction and appropriation of Buddhist stupas, monasteries and other structures by Brahminical forces.

Evidence for such destruction dates as far back as the end of the reign of Ashoka, who is credited with making Buddhism a world religion. A tradition recorded in a twelfth-century Kashmiri text, the Rajatarangini of Kalhana, mentions one of Ashoka’s sons, Jalauka. Unlike his father, he was a Shaivite, and destroyed Buddhist monasteries. If this is given credence, the attacks on Shramanic religions seem to have begun either in the lifetime of Ashoka or soon after his death. Other early evidence of the persecution of Shramanas comes from the post-Mauryan period, recorded in the Divyavadana, a Buddhist Sanskrit work from the early centuries of the Common Era, which describes the Brahmin ruler Pushyamitra Shunga as a great persecutor of Buddhists. He is said to have marched out with a large army, destroying stupas, burning monasteries and killing monks as far as Sakala, now known as Sialkot, where he announced a prize of one hundred dinars for every head of a Shramana. Added to this is evidence from the grammarian Patanjali, a contemporary of the Shungas, who famously stated in his Mahabhashya that Brahmins and Shramanas are eternal enemies, like the snake and the mongoose. All this taken together means that the stage was set for a Brahminical onslaught on Buddhism during the post-Mauryan period, especially under Pushyamitra Shunga, who may have destroyed the Ashokan Pillared Hall and the Kukutarama monastery at Pataliputra—modern-day Patna—in his bid to obliterate an important symbol of Mauryan power.

The possibility of a Shunga assault on Buddhist monuments is supported by the layers of debris and the evidence of desertion found at many centres of Buddhism, notably in Madhya Pradesh. For example, Sanchi, in Raisen district, which was an important Buddhist site since the time of Ashoka, has yielded evidence of the vandalisation of several edifices during the Shunga period. Similar evidence comes from nearby places such as Satdhara, in Katni district, and Deurkothar, in Rewa district.

The destruction and appropriation of Buddhist sites continued in Madhya Pradesh even after Shunga rule ended. At Ahmedpur, for instance, a Brahminical temple seems to have been constructed on a stupa base in the fifth century, and icons have been found at several sites around Vidisha, which were transformed into Shaivite or Jain places of worship around the eighth century. More than 250 kilometres north-east of Vidisha, a Buddhist establishment existed at Khajuraho before it emerged as a major temple town from the tenth century onwards, under the Chandellas. Here, the Ghantai temple appears to have been built on the remains of a Buddhist monument in the ninth or tenth century by the Jains, who also may have had a strong presence in the region.

Outside Madhya Pradesh, there are many sites where the destruction and appropriation of Buddhist sites and monuments seems to have taken place in the post-Mauryan centuries. For example, at Mathura, a flourishing town in western Uttar Pradesh during the Kushana period, some present-day Brahminical temples, such as those of Bhuteshwar and Gokarneshwar, were Buddhist sites in the ancient period. Here, the Katra Mound, a Buddhist centre during Kushana times, became a Hindu religious site in the early medieval period. More than 500 kilometres to the south-east, at Kaushambi, near Allahabad, the destruction and burning of the great Ghositaram monastery has been attributed to the Shungas—more specifically to Pushyamitra. Less than 150 kilometres to the east, Sarnath, near Varanasi, where the Buddha delivered his first sermon, became the target of Brahminical assault. This was followed by the construction of Brahminical buildings, such as Court 36 and Structure 136, probably in the Gupta period, by reusing Mauryan materials in front of the so-called Main Shrine. This shrine itself was built above the ruins of a large Ashokan stupa. Towards the end of the Gupta period the site was occupied by the Buddhists, and then reoccupied by non-Buddhists again.

Other towns associated with the Buddha were also either vandalised or appropriated. The Chinese pilgrim Fa-hsien, who visited India in the early fifth century, during the Gupta period, presents a rather dismal picture of Sravasti, where the Buddha spent much of his life. Here, Brahmins seem to have appropriated a Kushana Buddhist site, where a temple with Ramayana panels was constructed during the Gupta period. In fact, the general scenario of Buddhist establishments in what is today Uttar Pradesh was so bad that in Sultanpur district alone no less than 49 Buddhist sites seem to have been destroyed by fire when, as described in a paper by the archaeologist Alois Anton Führer, “Brahminism won its final victories over Buddhism.” In north Bihar, Vaishali was an important city associated with the Buddha, where he had spent a few years before proceeding to Kushinagar. Fa-hsien does not seem to have spent much time there, and merely mentions the existence of a stupa erected by the courtesan Amradarika. But another contemporary Chinese account, the Waiguo Shi of Zhi Sengzai, describing the situation prior to his visit, reports that the house of the Buddhist upasaka Vimalakirti at Vaishali was destroyed.

In the post-Gupta centuries, several Brahminical thinkers and philosophers, of different schools of thought and from various parts of the country, launched a massive ideological onslaught against Buddhists, which coincided with sustained attacks on their establishments. The Chinese Buddhist pilgrim and traveller Hsüan Tsang, who visited India between the years 631 and 645, during the reign of Harshavardhana, states that the sixth-century Huna ruler Mihirakula, a devotee of Shiva, destroyed 1,600 Buddhist stupas and monasteries and killed thousands of Buddhist monks and laity. He further tells us that 1,000 sangharamas in Gandhara were “deserted” and in “ruins,” and describes 1,400 sangharamas in Uddiyana as “generally waste and desolate.” Although he does not specifically attribute the desertion and destruction of these monuments to any particular individual, much of this destruction was possibly wrought by Mihirakula, whom Chinese sources describe as “the incarnation of a devil intent on destroying the True Dharma,” and to whom Kalhana’s Rajatarangini refers to as “a man of violent acts and resembling Kala (Death).”

In some parts of the country, as in Kashmir, the rulers ordered the demolition of temples and Buddhist establishments, both as personal vendetta and a matter of policy. Kalhana makes an interesting reference to the king Nara, who, angered by a Buddhist monk who seduced his wife, “burned thousands of viharas” in revenge. He also speaks of the tenth-century king Kshemagupta, who destroyed the Buddhist monastery of Jayendravihara at Srinagar and used its materials for the construction of the Kshemagaurishvara temple. Among the Kashmiri kings mentioned in the text, Harshadeva, who ruled from 1089 to 1111, was the most notorious. He systematically plundered and demolished Hindu and Buddhist temples for wealth, and appointed one Udayaraja as devotpatanna-nayaka—a special officer to supervise the destruction of temples and uprooting of idols.

Sources provide evidence of the Brahminical vandalism of Buddhist monuments also in the eastern region of the Indian subcontinent. Hsüan Tsang tells us that the king Shashanka of Gauda cut down the Bodhi tree at Bodh Gaya in Bihar—the place of the Buddha’s enlightenment—and removed a statue of the Buddha from a local temple, ordering that it be replaced by an image of Maheshvara. According to one view, however, Shaivites had already appropriated the site, and Shashanka merely restored Shiva’s worship. Bodh Gaya came under Buddhist control again during the period of the Pala rulers, who were Buddhists, and the place has, in fact, remained a site of religious contestation throughout Indian history. Traditional accounts and archaeological evidence suggest that the Mahabodhi temple there was repeatedly destroyed and rebuilt. At nearby Gaya—which figures prominently as a pitritirtha, where ancestral rites could be performed, in early medieval Puranic texts—a site was appropriated in the mid-eleventh century to establish a Vishnu temple, with its floor and railing made of reused material. The modern Vishnupada temple there was, however, built by the queen Ahilya Bai Holkar of Indore, in the late eighteenth century.

Less than a hundred kilometres north-east of Gaya was located the internationally reputed Buddhist university at Nalanda, with a vast monastic complex where Hsüan Tsang spent more than five years. Here, a Brahminical temple, probably Shaivite, was constructed in the mid seventh century—soon after Hsüan Tsang’s visit—behind Monasteries 7 and 8 on the eastern row of viharas. Unlike the Buddhist buildings, which were all built of brick, this temple was built entirely with dressed stone. It was completely out of place with regard to the general layout of the monasteries, and occupied what was essentially a Buddhist site. Evidence reveals, according to the archaeologists Krishna Deva and VS Agarwala, a “complex history of destruction, abandonment and reoccupation” also at Monasteries 1 and 4.

But the ultimate destruction of the Nalanda Mahavihara was, as I described in a 2006 address to the Indian History Congress, caused by Hindu fanatics who set fire to its library. The popular view, however, wrongly attributes this conflagration to the Mamluk commander Bakhtiyar Khilji, who never went there, but, in fact, sacked the nearby Odantapuri Mahavihara at modern-day Bihar Sharif. Bakhtiyar is also believed to have destroyed the Vikramashila Mahavihara—a centre of Vajrayana located at modern Antichak, near Bhagalpur in Jharkhand, and founded in the eighth century by the Pala ruler Dharmapala. But this, too, is not borne out by evidence, which seems to attribute the destruction to a conflagration and an attack probably by the Sena rulers of Bengal, who were inimical to Buddhism. Like them, the eleventh-century Kalachuri king Karna, who was also hostile to Buddhism, had earlier destroyed many Buddhist temples and monasteries in Magadha. In this region, according to the seventeenth-century Tibetan scholar Taranatha, 84 temples were destroyed, including at Nalanda. The Senas, in fact, invaded Buddhist establishments also in Bengal. For example, at Somapura Mahavihara—a monastery founded by Dharmapala in present-day Paharpur, Bangladesh—the presence of huge heaps of charcoal and ashes in the remains, as well as an epigraphic reference to a fire caused by “an approaching army” and to the death of a monk in the conflagration, have been interpreted as evidence of its destruction by the orthodox forces represented by the Senas.

Ancient Bengal provides several other instances of the transformation or appropriation of smaller Buddhist sites by Brahminical elements. At Bankura, for example, the Siddheshwar temple was built on stupas, and at Gokulmedh, now Mahasthan, and Birampur, in what is now Bangladesh’s Dinajpur district, Buddhist monuments were converted into Brahminical temples around the twelfth or thirteenth century. An instance of the Brahminical appropriation of a Buddhist temple came to light recently at Bochaganj, in Dinajpur.

South-west of Bengal, on the eastern coast of the subcontinent, Buddhism struck root in Odisha during the reign of Ashoka and remained greatly influential in the region for centuries. It faced a setback during the seventh century, when the king Shashanka conquered Utkal and Kongoda, in northern and southern Odisha, and Shaivite groups of Pashupatas possibly made their first attempt to convert Bhubaneswar into a tirtha. But Buddhist influence seems to have been much undermined after the end of Bhaumakara rule, around the middle of the tenth century. This is evident from the destruction and abandonment of Buddhist structures, and the mushrooming of Brahminical buildings over or near them during the rule of the Somavamshis, between the ninth and twelfth centuries, and the Eastern Gangas, between the eleventh and fifteenth centuries. Even the Jagannath temple at Puri, one of the most prominent Brahminical pilgrimage centres in eastern India, built in the twelfth century during the reign of the Eastern Ganga ruler Anantavarman Chodaganga Deva, is said to have been constructed on a Buddhist site.

While the Buddhist antecedent of the Jagannath temple may be contested, there is hardly any doubt that the temples of Purneshvara, Kedareshvara, Kanteshvara, Someshvara and Angeshvara, all in Puri district, were either built on Buddhist viharas, or made of material derived from them. This is true also of the Dakshineshvara temple at Bagalpur and Taila Math near Madhava—both in Cuttack district. Similarly, the Agikhia Math, in Puri district, and Kandhei Math, in Khorda district, and a Shiva temple in Kopari, in Balasore district, were all built on Buddhist buildings or their ruins. Examples of similar Brahminical appropriations are available also in neighbouring Chhattisgarh. At Sirpur or Shripur, in Raipur district, a temple and an attached monastery built by the monk Anandaprabhu, during the reign of the eighth-century king Mahashivagupta Balarjuna, were appropriated by Shaivites, who carried out extensive repairs and changes and took over other monasteries in the area as well.

In Maharashtra, which is home to nearly a thousand rock-cut caves and temples, there may be many sites where Buddhist monuments were either destroyed or appropriated, but in the absence of a comprehensive study only three of them may be mentioned here. They are Ter, or ancient Tagara in Osmanabad district, Karle, near Lonavala in Pune district, and Ellora, in Aurangabad district. At Ter, an apsidal temple was converted into a Hindu temple of Trivikrama, whose damaged stone image there dates to the early Chalukyan period. At Karle, the votive stupa in the rock-cut monastery was reconstructed into a large lingam so that the Buddhist site could become a Shiva temple. And at Ellora, iconography reveals that an “enormous amount of violence” took place there during the Rashtrakuta period, according to the archaeologist Giovanni Verardi, and that the original Buddhist caves were converted into Brahminical temples.

In Andhra Pradesh, there are several instances of the Brahminical appropriation of Buddhist sites. At Chezerla, in Guntur district, a Buddhist monastery was converted into the Kapoteshvara temple during the early medieval period. At Nagarjunakonda, there seems to have taken place what Verardi describes as a “ruthless” and “appalling” destruction of buildings during the time of the Guptas—though the local tradition attributes it to the followers of Shankaracharya. At Amaravati, where a Shaivite presence is attested during the Eastern Chalukya period, a Shiva temple was built a few metres away from the Great Stupa on the banks of the Krishna, which was possibly an encroachment on a Buddhist site. Not far from here, at Dhanyakataka, now Dharanikota, Hsüan Tsang tells us, “numerous sangharamas were mostly deserted and ruined,” possibly indicating violent changes in the region. To all this may be added the Buddhist caves at Undavalli, near Vijayawada, which seem to have been appropriated by Brahminical sects.

In the neighbouring state of Karnataka, which had been a centre of Buddhism from the time of Ashoka, we come across two important places where Buddhist monasteries were clearly appropriated by the Shaivites. One is Aihole, in north Karnataka, the cultural capital of the Chalukyas. Here, the Lad Khan temple, dating to the sixth century, was originally a simple square hall, and possibly served as the central hall of a Buddhist vihara. But it was transformed into a temple devoted to Surya-Narayana, with walls, windows, a cellar and a roof shrine. The other example of such appropriation comes from the vicinity of Mangaluru, in south Karnataka, where a Buddhist monastery and temple called Kadarika Vihara was transformed into a Shaivite temple in 1068.

The situation seems to have been somewhat confusing in the far south, because Hsüan Tsang mentions Chola country as distinct from Dravida country. The former, according to him, “is deserted and wild … the sangharamas are ruined and dirty,” and the latter’s capital, Kanchipuram, was home to “some hundred of sangharamas and 10,000 priests.” There may be some confusion due to Hsüan Tsang’s allusion to the “Chola” and “Dravida” as two distinct regions, but there is hardly any doubt that in the southern region Buddhism suffered a major setback as a result of the Brahminical movement led by Shankara, who is believed to have set up one of his four maths at Kanchipuram. The discovery of several Buddha images around the Kamakshi temple there leads one to believe that it was constructed on a Buddhist building. It has been suggested that this well-known temple was in all probability originally a shrine of the goddess Tara, associated with Buddhism, and it was here that the monastic Kamakoti Pitha was established. Another known example of appropriation comes from Tiruppadirippuliyur, near Cuddalore, where the Gunadharishwara temple was built on Buddhist ruins. An interesting example in the appropriation and reuse of Buddhist images is that of the Vaishnava poet-saint Tirumankai, who stole a large gold image of the Buddha from a stupa at Nagapattinam, and had it melted down for reuse in a temple that he was said to have been commissioned to build by the god Vishnu himself. Appropriations may have taken place at several other centres of Buddhism in south India, and need to be examined.

Our survey does not cover the entire country, nor can it claim to cover fully even the smaller areas it has touched upon. But it shows that Brahminism never came to terms with Buddhism—though there is much evidence of interaction and mutual borrowing between them, which has been discussed by many scholars. Contrary to the Hindutva view of the ancient period of Indian history as a golden age marked by social and religious harmony, our survey provides evidence of violent religious conflict before the advent of Islam. It shows that the demolition and desecration of rival religious establishments was fairly common. Not only did Brahmins vandalise and appropriate Buddhist sites and monuments, they targeted Jain monuments as well—but that is a different story.

ضمیر فروشی کا انعام


Posted on January 24, 2015 by Urdu Media Monitor

محمد غزالی خان

بابری مسجد کی شہادت کو تین یا چار سال ہو چکے تھے اورہر سال کی طرح لندن کی انڈین مسلم فیڈریشن نے ایک احتجاجی جلسے کے اہتمام کا اعلان کیا تھا۔ لندن کے ایک عالم دین مولانا عیسیٰ منصوری نے منتظمین سے فون پر ظفر سریش والا کو دعوت دینے کی درخواست کی۔ مولانا نے بتایا کہ بمبئی سے تعلق رکھنے والے ظفر صاحب ایک بڑے zafar_sareshwala_narendra_modiکاروباری شخص ہیں اور ملی معاملات میں گہری دلچسپی لیتے ہیں۔

اس سے پہلے ظفر سریش ولا کا نام برطانیہ کے مسلم تنظیمی حلقوں میں کسی نے نہیں سنا تھا۔ تاہم مولانا کی درخواست پر ظفر سریش والا سے فون پر رابطہ کیا گیا اور جلسے میں شرکت کی دعوت دی گئی۔ عزت افزائی کا شکریہ ادا کرنے کے بجائے جو جواب منتظمین کو فون پر ملا وہ یہ تھا کہ ’’ہم تو بابری مسجد کو بھول چکے ہیں ۔ آپ بھی بھول جائیں۔ ہم نے اس سلسلے میں مولانا علی میاں صاحب سے بھی بات کی ہے اور وہ ہماری بات سے متفق ہیں‘‘۔

بہر حال ظفر سریش والا نے جلسے میں شرکت کی اور تقریربھی کی مگر شاید ماحول کی سنجیدگی اور شرکاء کے تاثرات کے پیش نظراس موقع پر انھوں نے بابری مسجد کو بھول جانے کا مشورہ نہیں دیا۔

ظفر سریش والا تبلیغی جماعت سے وابستہ رہ چکے ہیں اور ذاتی زندگی میں اچھے خاصے دین دار ہیں۔ تاہم کسی موقع کو اپنے فائدے کیلئے استعمال کرنے میں انہیں کوئی تردّد نہیں ہوتا۔ معروف عالم دین مولانا علی میاں کے انتقال کے بعد انھوں نے ڈیوزبری، جہاں پر مسلمانوں کی ایک بڑی آبادی ہونے کے ساتھ ساتھ تبلیغی جماعت کا بڑا مرکز بھی ہے، میں ایک تعزیتی جلسے کا اہتمام کیا۔ اس میں مولانا تقی عثمانی صاحب سمیت ہندوستان اور پاکستان سے جَیّد علما کو بلایا گیا تھا۔ ایک دوست ، جنہوں نے تعزیتی جلسے میں شرکت کی تھی اُ نھوں نے بعد میں بتایا کہ یہ تعزیتی جلسے کے بجائے سریش والا کی شخصی رابطہ عامہ کی تقریب معلوم ہوتی تھی۔

تعزیتی جلسے کے چند دن بعد ظفر سریش والا کی کمپنی پارسولی کارپوریشن کی بڑے پیمانے پر تشہیر کی گئی جس میں انویسٹمنٹ پر نامو ر علماء کے فتووں اور پیغامات کی کتابی شکل میں اشاعت شامل تھی ۔ پارسولی کارپوریشن نے آئندہ سالوں میں جو بدنامی کمائی اس کی خبریں اس وقت ذرائع ابلاغ میں نمایاں طور پر آئی تھیں اور انٹر نیٹ پر اُن کی تمام تفصیلات موجود ہیں۔

اس واقعہ کے چند سال بعد 2001 میں دہلی میں ہندوتوا ایجنٹوں کے ہاتھوں قرآن پاک کے ایک نصخے کو نظر آتش کئے جانے کا افسوس ناک واقعہ پیش آیااور ہندوستان میں مسلمانوں نے اس کے خلاف احتجاج کیا تھا۔ کچھ اخبارات نے یہ خبر شائع کی کہ احتجاج کی ترغیب برطانیہ میں ہندی مسلمانوں نے دی تھی جس کے بعد دہلی کے ایک ہفتہ وار نے انکشاف کیا کہ برطانیہ میں وہ ہندی مسلمان ظفر سریش والا صاحب تھے۔ چند روز بعد ظفر سریش والا سے میری ملاقات مسلم کونسل آف برٹین کی ایک تقریب میں ہوئی جس میں انھوں نے اعتراف کیا کہ انہوں نے دہلی میں کچھ علماء سے اس سلسلے میں رابطہ کیا تھا۔ مجھے اعتراف کرنا پڑتا ہے کہ اس وقت میں ظفر سریش والا کی دینی حمیت اور جذبہ سے بہت متاثر ہوا تھا۔

اس واقعہ کے بعد انڈین مسلم فیڈریشن نے اگلے جمعہ کو یوم دعا کے طور پر منانے کا فیصلہ کیا اور روزنامہ جنگ میں ایک چھوٹے سے اشتہار کے ذریعہ مسلمانان برطانیہ سے ہندوستانی مسلمانوں کے لئے خصوصی دعا کرنے کی اپیل کی گئی تھی۔ اشہار کی رقم ، جو غالباً 150 پونڈ تھی، ظفر سریش والا ہی نے ادا کی تھی۔

تیسری مرتبہ ظفر سریش والا کا نام گجرات نسل کشی 2002 کے بعد زورو شور سے سننے میں آیا۔ دنیا میں دوسری جگہوں کی طرح برطانیہ میں بھی ان مسلم کش فسادات نے ہر اس شخص کو ہلا کر رکھ دیا تھا جس میں انسانیت کی تھوڑی بہت بھی رمق باقی تھی۔ شمالی لندن کے علاقے ہیکنی، جہاں پر گجراتی مسلمانوں کی کثیر آبادی ہے، کی ایک تنظیم ، نارتھ لندن مسلم کمیونٹی سینٹر، نے برطانیہ بھر کے مختلف شہروں سے ہندوستانی نژاد مسلم مندوبین پر مشتمل ایک ہنگامی میٹنگ بلائی۔ میٹنگ نے فوری طور پر کونسل آف انڈین مسلمز کے نام سے ایک نئی تنظیم قائم کرنے کا فیصلہ کیاجس کا مقصد ایک پریشر گروپ کے طور پر کام کرنا طے پایا۔ کونسل آف انڈین مسلمز نے رائے عامہ کو بیدار کرنے اور مسلمانان ہند کے حق میں استوار کرنے کا کا م ہنگامی بنیادوں پر شروع کردیا اور دو تین ہفتہ بعد مزید ایک میٹنگ کا انعقاد کیا گیا۔ اس میٹنگ میں برطانیہ بھر کی ہندوستانی مسلم تنظیموں کے نمائندگان نے شرکت کی۔ شرکاء سے جن لوگوں نے خطاب کیا ان میں ایک نام ظفر سریش والا کاتھا۔

ظفر سریش والا نے ایک جذباتی اور درانگیز تقریر کی جس میں اُنھوں نے سابق کانگریسی رکن پارلیمنٹ احسان جعفری مرحوم کو اپنا رشتہ دار بتاتے ہوئے اُن مظالم کی تفصیلات بیان کیں جو قتل کئے جانے سے پہلے بلوائیوں نے مرحوم پر ڈھائے تھے۔ سریش والا نے بتایا کہ ’’جعفری صاحب نے بہت سے کانگریسی سیاست دانوں کو فون کیا مگر سب نے بے بسی کا اظہار کر کے معذرت کرلی تھی۔ تب جعفری صاحب نے نریندر مودی کو کئی فون کئے جس کے جواب میں انہیں فحش گالیاں سننی پڑیں۔ بالآخر وہ گھر سے باہر نکل آئے اور بلوائیوں سے درخواست کی کہ میری جان لے لو مگر میرے گھر میں جن لوگوں نے پناہ لی ہوئی ہے انہیں معاف کردو۔ مگر بلوائیوں نے انہیں برہنہ کر کے سڑک پر چلایا اور رام رام کہنے پر مجبور کیا ۔ انکار کرنے پر ان کی انگلیاں کاٹ دی گئیں مگر انھوں نے پھر بھی رام رام نہ کہا اور اس طرح ان کے جسم کے دوسرے اعضاء کاٹے گئے اورپھر زندہ حالت میں انہیں آگ میں پھینک دیا گیا۔‘‘

اس کے بعد ظفر سریش والا نے لندن کی کئی اور تنظیموں کی میٹنگوں میں بھی تقریریں کیں جو مودی کے د ل دہلانے والے جرائم کے خلاف مہم میں شامل تھیں تاہم وہ کسی تنظیم کے رکن نہیں بنے۔ ظفر سریش والا اُن لوگوں میں سے نہیں ہیں جو تشہیر اور نام و نمود کے بغیر خدمت خلق کرنے پر یقین رکھتے ہیں۔ اس کی وجہ سے ان کا نام بار بار اخبارات میں آ رہا تھا۔ لہٰذاس کا اثر ا حمدآباد میں ان کے والدین اور کنبے کے لوگوں پر پڑنا لازمی تھا۔

ظفر سریش والا کی اس بات کے لئے بہر حال تعریف کرنی پڑے گی کہ کونسل آف انڈین مسلم کے رکن نہ ہونے کے باوجود انھوں نے اگست 2003 میں مودی کی لندن آمد سے پہلے کونسل کے چےئر مین مُناف زِینا کو فون کر کے اپنی پریشانی کے بارے میں بتایا اور مودی سے ملنے کا ارادہ ظاہر کیا۔ مناف زینا نے سریش والا کی بات سُن کر ان سے ہمدردی کی اور کہا کہ اگر مودی سے ملاقات کر کے ان کے گھر والوں کی پریشانیاں دور ہوجاتی ہیں تو انہیں ان کی ملاقات پر کوئی اعتراض نہیں بشرطیکہ یہ ملاقات ذاتی ہو اور کسی کی نمائندگی کرنے کا دعویٰ نہ کیا جائے۔

مگر ظفر سریش والا ایک کامیاب اور موقع شناس تاجر ہیں جن کی ذاتی نمود اور تشہیر ہر بات پر مقدم ہوتی ہے۔ وہ اپنا ایجنڈا اور منصوبہ پہلے ہی تیار کر چکے تھے۔ مودی سے ملنے کے لئے انھوں نے اپنے چھوٹے بھائی طلحہ سریش والا کو بلوا لیا تھا اور کمال چالاکی سے مولانا عیسیٰ منصوری کو اپنے ساتھ جانے پر آمادہ کر لیا تھا جو اس وقت تک ظفر سریش والا کے لئے پیرو مرشد کی حیثیت رکھتے تھے۔ سریش والا نے ملاقات سے متعلق اخباری بیان جاری کردیا تھا جس کی خبر ہندوستانی اخبارات میں اس وقت پڑے پیمانے پر آئی تھی۔ مثال کے طور پر ہندوستان ٹائمز نے سرخی جمائی تھی “Muslim leaders welcome Narendra Modi in London, “

جو لوگ مودی کی فسطائیت کا براہ راست نشانہ بن چکے تھے ان کا ردّ عمل فطری طور پر نہایت شدید تھا۔ مثلاً احسان جعفری مرحوم کے بیٹے زبیر جعفری نے ای میل کر کے سریش والا سے کہا ’’ محض اس وجہ سے کہ گجرات فسادات کے دوران تمھاری اپنی بہنوں اور بیویوں کی آبرو ریزی نہیں ہوئی تھی تم نے گجرات کے قصائی سے ملاقات کی ہے جس کے بارے میں سب کو علم ہے کہ وہ مسلمانوں کے قتل عام اور (مسلم خواتین) کی آبروریزی کیلئے براہ راست ذمہ دار ہے۔۔۔ اس کے سیاہ کرتوتوں کا جواز پیدا کرنے سے گجرات میں تمہاری تجارت کو تو فائدہ ہو سکتا ہے مگر گجرات کے مظلومین کے ساتھ یہ غداری ہے۔ الحمدللہ گجرات اور برطانیہ کے مسلمانوں نے تمہارا اصلی چہرہ دیکھ لیا ہے اور اب انہیں تمہاری اصلیت کا علم ہو چکا ہے‘‘ (Milli Gazette, 23 August 2002)

ظفر سریش والا کا کہنا ہے کہ لندن میں مودی کے ساتھ ان کی ملاقات دوستانہ اور کھلے ماحول میں ہوئی جس میں ، بقول ان کے، مودی نے گجرات کے فسادات پر افسوس کا اظہار کیا تھا۔ ترکی روزنامہ ٹوڈیززماں کو دیئے گئے انٹر ویو میں انہوں نے کہا ’’میرا مودی مخالف موقف تبدیل ہو چکا ہے جو اُن کے ساتھ رابطہ کی عد م موجودگی سے پیدا ہونے والی غلط فہمیوں کا نتیجہ تھا۔‘‘ (Today’s Zaman, 30 November 2014)

تاہم مولانا عیسیٰ منصوری اس موقف کی پر زور انداز میں تردید کرتے ہیں۔ ان کا کہنا ہے کہ اس ملاقات میں مودی نے کسی طرح کا کوئی افسوس ظاہر نہیں کیا تھا اور ہم اپنی کہتے رہے وہ اپنی کہتا رہا۔ (twocircles.net, 22 November 2012)

انہوں نے ٹائمز آف انڈیا کو بتایا کہ یہ مودی کا ہی اصرار تھا جس کی وجہ سے وہ برطانیہ سے ہندوستا ن واپس چلے گئے ۔ مودی نے ان سے کہا تھا کہ ’’کیا وہاں انگریزوں کی غلامی کرتے رہو گے؟ ‘‘ (Times of India 24 November 2013)

بہر حال ان تعلقات سے ظفر سریش والا کو ذبردست فائدہ ہوا ہے۔ ٹائمز آف انڈیا کے مطابق ’’انڈسٹریل والو بنانے کی ان کی فیکٹری بھی نذر آتش کردی گئی تھی اور جو خاندان کبھی سب سے زیادہ زکوٰ ۃ دیا کرتا تھا مالی طور پر اس کی حالت خستہ ہوگئی تھی۔ ‘‘ آئی بی این کو دیئے گئے ایک اور انٹرویو میں ظفر سریش والا نے کہاکہ وہ مالی طور پر’’ بالکل تباہ ہو چکے تھے اور تقریباً خود زکوٰ ۃ لینے کی سی حالت میں پہنچ گئے تھے۔‘‘

البتہ مودی کی خدمت گزاری میں آنے کے بعد ظفر سریش والا نہ یہ کہ پہلے سے زیادہ دولت مند بن گئے ہیں بلکہ گجرات بھر کے مالدار ترین لوگوں میں سے ایک ہیں۔ اور اب تو انہیں مولانا آزاد نیشنل اردو یونیورسٹی کی چانسلر شپ سے نوازے جانے کے بعد ان کے مقام میں مزید اضافہ کردیا گیا ہے۔ یہ ایک ایسا عہدہ اور اتنا بڑا انعام تھا جو ان کے اپنے بقول ان کے ذہن و گمان میں بھی نہیں آ سکتا تھا اور جس کا اعلان مودی سرکار نے ان کو بغیر بتائے ہی کر دیا تھا یہاں تک کہ جب جدہ کے عرب نیوز نے ان سے اس بارے میں پوچھا تو انھوں نے حیرت کا اظہار کرتے ہوئے کہا مجھے تو اس کا کوئی علم نہیں۔

اس عہدے کیلئے ظفر سریش والا کی اہلیت کیا ہے ؟ نریندر مودی کی خوشنودی اور قربت حاصل ہونے کے علاوہ ان کے بقول ’’میرا خاندان لمبے عرصے سے گجرات میں اردو کی بہت بڑی خدمت انجام دیتا چلا آ رہا ہے۔ 1972 میں جب گجرات میں اردو حالت نزع میں تھی تو میرے مرحوم والد اور ماموں نے احمد آباد میں اردو کے فروغ کیلئے ایک بورڈقائم کیا تھا۔۔۔۔ اردو ہمارے خون میں شامل ہے۔ ہم شمع رسالہ اور گھر کی خواتین رضوان اور بانو پڑھتے ہوئے پلے بڑھے ہیں۔‘‘ (Arab News, 13 January 2015)

ماشااﷲ! ان صلاحیتوں کے سامنے ملت کے ان گمنام سپاہیوں کے بارے میں کیا کہا جائے جنہوں نے اردو کے فروغ اور ملت میں علم کے نور کو پھیلانے کیلئے زندگیاں وقف کردیں اور ان ہونہار نوجوانوں کی حالت زار پر کیا تبصر ہ کیا جائے جو مالی مشکلات اور بے روزگاری میں مبتلا سڑکوں پر خاک چھانتے گھوم رہے ہیں۔ اسی انٹر ویو میں ظفر سریش والا صاحب نے بتایا کہ ’’مودی بہت بڑے محب اردو ہیں‘‘۔

جب سے ظفر سریش والا کو مودی کی قربت حاصل ہوئی ہے ان پر مودی کے نئے نئے اوصاف کھل رہے ہیں۔ حال ہی میں جے پور میں مسلم نوجوانوں سے خطاب کرتے ہوئے ظفر سریش والا نے انہیں یقین دلایا ’’میں تمہیں یقین دلاتا ہوں کہ اس دور حکومت میں تمہیں کسی امتیاز کا سامنا نہیں کرنا پڑے گا۔ مودی حکومت نے اپنے آپ کو مساوی مواقع کی فراہمی کا پابند کیا ہوا ہے۔‘‘ (Times of India, 18 January 2015)

مسلمانوں کے ساتھ انصاف کرنے کے مودی کے وعدوں پر تبصرہ کرتے ہوئے ظفر سریش والا نے کہا ’’جو کچھ مودی سوچ رہے ہیں اس میں کچھ بھی نیا نہیں ہے۔ ہم تو اس کے بارے میں بہت پہلے سے جانتے ہیں اور اب دنیا پر یہ حقیقت کھل رہی ہے‘‘

13 ستمبر 2013 کو آئی بی این کے ویب سائٹ پر شائع ہونے والے اپنے مضمون میں سریش والا لکھتے ہیں ’’حقیقت یہ ہے کہ مسلمانوں کی ایک بڑی تعداد کے ساتھ مودی کے بہت گہرے روابط ہیں۔ انھوں نے مسلمانوں کی مضبوط ٹیمیں تیار کی ہیں جو ان کے ساتھ نزدیکی کے ساتھ کام کر رہی ہیں۔ یہ لوگ تعلیم یافتہ ہیں اور مسلمانوں میں ان کی بڑی عزت ہے۔ کوئی انہیں بکاؤ مال نہیں سمجھتا۔ یہ وہ لوگ نہیں ہیں جو ذاتی احسانات لیتے ہیں اور درباری بن جاتے ہیں۔ اس کے بر عکس کانگریس پارٹی میں قابل اعتماد مسلمانوں کا مکمل صفایا ہے۔ صرف گجرات میں ہی نہیں بلکہ ہندوستا ن بھر میں۔‘‘

واقعی ظفر سریش والا صاحب؟ اگر چند ذاتی مفادات کی خاطر اپنی عزت نفس فروخت کرنا، ناانصافیوں پر آنکھیں بند کرلینا اور سچ بات کہنے کی جراٗت نہ کر سکنا بکاؤ ہونا نہیں ہے تو اور کیا ہے؟ کیا آپ بتا سکتے ہیں کہ آپ نے ان انتہا پسند ہندوؤں کے خلاف کب آواز اٹھائی تھی جو ملک بھر میں زہر افشانی کرتے پھر رہے ہیں اور جنہوں نے پورے ماحول کو آلودہ کر رکھا ہے؟ آپ نے کب ان معاملات کی طرف مودی کی توجہ دلائی تھی اور اس سلسلے میں انھوں نے کیا کیا ہے؟ آپ کا محبوب قائد نہ یہ کہ اپنی جماعت کے ارکان اور ممبران پارلیمنٹ کے جرائم اور اشتعال انگیزیوں پر معنی خیز خاموشی اختیار کئے ہوئے ہے، اس نے مظفر نگر کے فسادیوں کو عزت و تکریم سے نوازا ہے۔ تاریخ پر زعفرانی رنگ چڑھانا، اشتعال انگیزی، زہر افشانی، فسادات کروانے سمیت جرائم کی ایک لمبی فہرست ہے جن پر آپ کے محبوب قائد نے ہونٹوں پر تالا ڈال لیا ہے۔ مظفر نگر کے فسادات میں ملوث اپنی جماعت کے ارکان کو وہ سزا تو کیا دیتا مسلمانوں کے زخموں پر نمک چھڑکنے کیلئے اس نے ایک ملزم کو اے ایم یو کورٹ کا رکن نامزد کر دیا ہے۔ مسئلہ فلسطین پر ہندوستان کے پرانے اور اُصولی موقف کے بر خلاف اس نے صیہونی ریاست سے دوستی کی ہے جس کی بنیاد مسلمانوں کے خلاف اس کے بغض اور دشمنی کے علاوہ اور کچھ بھی نہیں ہے۔

بہر حال ان تمام واقعات میں تعجب کی کوئی بات نہیں ہے۔ ان باتوں کا خطرہ تو انتخابات میں مودی کی فتح سے بہت پہلے محسوس ہوچکا تھا۔ جہاں تک ظفر سریش والا کا تعلق ہے غلام محمد وستانوی، شاہد صدیقی، سلمان خان، آدم پٹیل اور مودی کے ساتھ ہونے والی ہر مسلمان کی ملاقات یا ان کے ذریعے اس کی حمایت کے پیچھے سریش والا کا نام ظاہر ہوا ہے۔ اندرون ملک اپنے آقا کی خدمت انجام دینے کے بعد اب شاید انہیں مسلم ممالک میں مودی کیلئے رابطے اور دوستانہ فضابنانے کا کام سونپا گیا ہے۔ ترکی اور سعودی عرب کے روزناموں میں شائع ہوئے انٹرویوز غالباً اس سلسلے کی پہلی کڑی ہیں ۔ اورنام کے ساتھ ایک یونیورسٹی کی چانسلرشپ کے لگ جانے سے سریش والا کا نام زیادہ با عزت لگے گا۔

افسوس کا مقام ہے کہ ایک طرف جب فسادات، قتل وغارتگری ، آبرو ریزی ، آتش زنی اور ہر طرح کے جرائم میں ملوث عناصر کو الزامات سے بری کیا جا رہا ہے اور کلین چٹیں جاری کی جا رہی ہیں تو دوسری طرف ان جرائم کا ارتکاب کرنے والوں کے خلاف جہاد کرنے والی خاتون ٹیشٹا سیٹل واڈ، جاوید آنند کے ساتھ ساتھ احسان جعفری کے صاحب زادے تنویر جعفری کو مالی خرد برد جیسے سنگین جرم میں ملوث کر لیا گیا ہے اور جن لوگوں کے حقوق کیلئے یہ لوگ لڑ رہے تھے انہیں ڈرا دھمکا کر اور لالچ دے کر ان کے خلاف گواہی دینے یر آمادہ کر لیا گیا ہے۔

جہاں تک ظفر سریش والا کا تعلق ہے بس یہی کہا جا سکتا ہے کہ ’’لگے رہو سریش والا بھائی‘‘ ہو سکتا ہے کہ نائب صدر جمہوریہ ہند کا عہدہ آپ کا منتطر ہو۔ مگر میں جانتا ہوں کہ آپ بے دین شخص نہیں۔ یہ ذہن میں رہے کہ اﷲ ربّ العزت ہم سب کے دلوں کے راز سے واقف ہے۔ اس کے دربار میں کس کا کیا فیصلہ ہونا ہے وہی جانتا ہے مگر اس دنیا میں بھی جلد یا بدیر ظلم اور ظالم بہر حال ختم ہو کر رہتے ہیں اور قوم میر جعفروں، میر صادقوں، چھاگلاؤں اور دلوائیوں کو ہمیشہ حقارت اور نفرت کے ساتھ یاد کرتی ہے ۔ ان کیلئے دعائے مغفرت کے بجائے نسل در نسل ان کے نام پر تھو تھو کرتی ہے۔
