दलित जागरण का उठता ज्वार


दलित जागरण का उठता ज्वार


तरुण विजय
19 अगस्त, प्रभात खबर
अभिमान पर जरा सी चोट लगी थी तो महाभारत हो गया था- द्रौपदी इसकी साक्षी है. एक बार गोली खाना सहन हो सकता है, लेकिन तिरस्कार नहीं. हैदराबाद विमान तल पर राजीव गांधी ने तत्कालीन मुख्यमंत्री टी अंजैया का जो अपमान किया, उसके बाद कांग्रेस का तख्तापलट हो गया था. जनता ने माफ नहीं किया. 
अनुसूचित जातियां तो सदियों से यह अपमान झेलती आ रही हैं. जिन्हें अपनी जाति के बड़ा होने का अहंकार है, उन्हें इन दलितों की चरण-रज अपने माथे से लगानी चाहिए कि उन्होंने अपमान सहा पर धर्म नहीं त्यागा. प्रधानमंत्री मोदी ने हैदराबाद में दलित-दर्द पर जो भावनात्मक टिप्पणी की, उसका बड़ा महत्व है. 
वह फटकार थी उन कथित सवर्णों को, जो दलितों को मनुष्य से कमतर एवं प्रताड़ना योग्य मान कर चलते हैं. समता एवं समदृष्टि के लिए अनेक आंदोलनों तथा महापुरुषों के कठोर शब्द-प्रहारों के बावजूद पंडितों, साधु-संन्यासियों और राजनेताओं ने अपने ही हिंदू धर्म के अविभाज्य अंग दलितों के प्रति समाज में समानता लाने का कोई गंभीर प्रयास नहीं किया. मातृभूमि की रक्षा में सर्वोच्च बलिदान देनेवाले दलित की चिता से भी भेदभाव करने में ये 'सवर्ण देशभक्त' चूके नहीं. 
इस परिदृश्य में जब अनेक घटनाओं के एकजुट प्रभाव से एक सार्वदेशिक दलित पुनर्जागरण का वातावरण दिखता है, प्रधानमंत्री मोदी ने गोरक्षा के नाम पर गुंडागर्दी और दलितों पर उत्तराखंड, उत्तर प्रदेश से लेकर गुजरात और कर्नाटक हो रहे प्रहारों की करारी प्रताड़ना की है. 
सार यह है कि दलितों पर जो प्रहार हो रहे हैं, वे प्रहार प्रधानमंत्री पर हो रहे हैं- इन आघात करनेवालों को क्षमा नहीं किया जायेगा. ये लोग अपने अहंकार और मूर्खतापूर्ण आवेश के कारण हिंदू समाज को ही भीतर से कमजोर कर रहे हैं. इतना ही नहीं, इसमें इसलामी और वामपंथी दखल शुरू होने से मामला और पेचीदा बनता गया है. दलित समस्या हिंदुओं की आंतरिक नासमझी की समस्या है- इसे इसलामी सहानुभूति की जरूरत नहीं. 
वे लोग अपने वे लोग अपनी सामाजिक दुर्बलताओं को दूर करने का साहस पहले दिखाएं. कुछ दिन पहले फिल्म अभिनेता इरफान खान ने तनिक इसलामी सुधार की बात क्या कह दी कि मुसलमानों ने उस बेचारे का जीना दूभर कर दिया. मुसलिम कट्टरपंथी और वामपंथी अपनी राजनीति के लिए दलित-विषय का इस्तेमाल कर सकते हैं, लेकिन न तो समस्या का समाधान करने की क्षमता रखते हैं, न ही ऐसी उनकी नीयत है. 
समाधान तो केवल हिंदू ही कर सकते हैं. उन्हें स्वयं से पूछना होगा कि कुछ जातियों को बड़ा और कुछ को छोटा वे किस अधिकार से कहते हैं? उनके पंडितों और साधु-संन्यासियों का व्यापार और राजनीति में बहुत दखल रहता है- लेकिन हिंदू समाज की रक्षक-भुजा दलितों के दर्द में ये पागधनी कितने शामिल होते हैं? 
जब कभी दलितों पर अन्याय हुआ, तो ये धर्म के अनुरागी महामंडलेश्वर, मठाधीश कहीं दिखते नहीं. इनके द्वारा सैकड़ों विद्यालय चलाये जा रहे हैं. ऐसा कोई विद्यालय दिखाएं, जिनमें अनुसूचित जाति के बच्चों को आगे बढ़ाने के लिए विशेष व्यवस्था की गयी हो. धर्मग्रंथों की मंत्रमुग्ध व्याख्या करने और तन्मय होकर कीर्तन करने से बात नहीं बनती, न ही धर्म बचता है. 
गंदे मंदिर, गंदे तीर्थस्थान, संस्कृति से दूर पंडितों द्वारा भक्तों को छलना, हर बड़े मंदिर के पंडितों का मुकदमेबाजी में फंसे रहना, गायों की रक्षा का पाखंड- हर गली-मुहल्ले में प्लास्टिक खाकर मरती गायें, घोटालों में डूबीं गोशालाओं में तड़प-तड़प कर मरती भूखी गायें, हिंदू अफसरों की रिश्वतखोरी के बल पर उत्तर से पूरब की ओर बांग्लादेश धकेली जाती गायें- इन सबका जिम्मेवार दलित है या अहंकारी सवर्ण? 
उत्तराखंड में इन सवर्णों की एकजुटता का सर्वदलीय आतंककारी स्वरूप मैंने स्वयं देखा है. वह दहशत भरा है. इन जैसे लोगों के कारण लाखों की संख्या में दलित हिंदू अन्य मजहबों में चले गये. 
मेरा स्वयं का अनेक वर्ष जनजातियों एवं अनुसूचित जातियों में कार्य का अनुभव है कि कोई दलित कभी धर्म परिवर्तन नहीं करना चाहता. केवल सवर्ण अहंकार और अपमान से प्रतिशोध का उसके पास यही एक मार्ग होता है. ओड़िशा में 'काला पहाड़' किसने बनाया था? सर मुहम्मद इकबाल के कश्मीरी पिता को हिंदू से मुसलमान क्यों होना पड़ा? 
प्रधानमंत्री नरेंद्र मोदी के साहसिक वक्तव्य ने हिंदू समाज को नकारात्मक आघातों से समय पर बचाया है. समाज को तोड़ने में ज्यादा श्रम नहीं लगता. मूर्खता या षड्यंत्र का एक ही काम पलीता लगा देता है. गाय और दलित के नाम पर समाज विघातक तत्वों के षड्यंत्र देश को तोड़ देंगे. नरेंद्र मोदी ने ऐसे तत्वों को कड़ी चेतावनी तो दी ही है, साथ ही दलितों को अपनी आत्मीयता का रक्षा-कवच भी दिया है.

Be proud of your scientists-DRDO – India’s victory force, making history in Parliament



DRDO – India’s victory force, making history in Parliament
August 4, 2016, 3:12 AM IST 


I was always critical of the DRDO, like the other less informed people and some media persons — calling it a ‘white elephant’ or a burden on India’s defence establishment, which never delivers on time and never convinces the forces. It was in March this year, when as a member of the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Defence, I visited DRDO’s action fields and, with the other MPs, had a lengthy interaction with the scientists and officers of the establishment.

We saw their labs and heard how in difficult circumstances and despite lethal Budget cuts they have performed brilliantly. Their achievements have surprised the developed world. DRDO’s excellent record in manufacturing, improvising and equipping all the three wings of our forces has been exemplary. Yet, due to reasons, that either our so-called defence expert media persons remain ill-informed about or the foreign lobbyists work overtime to create an embarrassingly low opinion about our own scientists, the DRDO was never considered for appreciation or praised for the efforts it made and the results it has shown.

Seeing the excellent performance and highly successful achievements of the DRDO, left me with a sense of guilt and regret. It was a moment of a revelation for us all, and immediately I proposed to the Raksha Mantri Shri Manohar Parrikar if he would consider holding an exhibition of the DRDO’s superb achievements at the Parliament House? The move would not just provide our lawmakers the opporutnity to see the developments of the DRDO, but also help attract positive attention of the media. It’s easy to deride our own scientists and make fun of their hardwork while praising whatever happens in the west. This attitude not only demoralises our forces, but it also adversely impacts India’s future defence plans. This as the planners and financiers to R&D feel less enthusiastic about increasing the budget allocations for the organisation. Eventually, India becomes more and more dependent on foreign purchases.

Fortunately, Manohar Parrikar took less than thirty seconds to okay the proposal and the files began moving. We tried to hold this exhibition in the last Budget session, but logistically it didnt work. When the exhibition finally opens on August 3, by Lok Sabha Speaker Smt Sumitra Mahajan, I feel it will be a glorious moment for the defence establishment, especially for the technologists and the scientists who have put in their best to strengthen India’s defence sinews.

Tejas, recently inducted into the Indian Air Force is one shining example. Its hundred per cent indigenously developed light-weight, multi-role single engine tactical fighter which can carry air to air, air to ground and anti-ship missiles. Its a wonder-bird of the Indian Air Force and the latest icon of pride, thanks to the DRDO.
PINAKA weapon system is another feather in the DRDO’s cap. Its a indigenously developed multi-barrel Rocket Launcher for twelve rockets in two pods that can be fired simultaneously. It’s one of the most lethal machines for the enemy, successfully developed and delivered.

The story of main battle tank Arjun mark II reads like an adventure novel. Too many hurdles, too many doubts finally resulted in the mark II, which today boasts of the state-of-the-art technology incorporated into it. To cite a few – it has many progressions, including 15 significant profile enhancements. It has a combat weight of 62 tonnes ( fully loaded and can move at 60 km/hour on road and 40 km/horu cross country with 1400 horsepower engine. With a smart rate of firepower 6 to 8 rounds per minute, its potency is boosted with missiles automatic target tracking and maximised penetration characteristics. Its equipped with advanced land navigation system and enhanced night vision capabilities. And every part and technology is Indian!!

DRDO touches the everyday life of a soldier and the citizen alike – from Leh berry to ready-to-eat chapatis, min battle tank to BRAHMOS and the Varunastra torpedo, that can destroy a submarine with a hit-range of 20km within deep waters.
Besides developing state-of-the-art radar systems for battlefield surveillance, 3D low-level light-weight radar, maritime patrol airborne radar, DRDO has developed and inducted Troop-Level radar for Akash weapon system which is the air defence system for the Indian army. It has the capability to perform extensive search, track multiple targets and missiles and to command and guide own multiple missiles concurrently.

Agni, Prithvi, Pinaka, missiles are the icons of our defence forces’ muscles and brains. And all credit for them goes to the DRDO. Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘Make in India’ is in fact getting flowered best in DRDO, thanks to Parrikar’s visionary support.

The DRDO prowess at show inside the Parliament is a historical event. It’s for the MPs to take full advantage of it and spread the message of Indian talent and scientific achievments, rising above the party lines. If they don’t see it, they will know less about India and will remain incapable to contribute to the defence preparedness of the nation.

It’s a must, a compulsory visit for, I would even say, anyone who is anywhere and is interested in indian future, he or she must take a ticket to Delhi, contact the local MP to enter Parliament House and see this fabulous show of India’s might before August 5, when the exhibition closes.

Free Valmikis from scavenging job, let higher castes clean their own dirt--Tarun Vijay in Rajya Sabha

Free Valmikis from scavenging job, let higher castes clean their own dirt- Dalit scavengers dying while cleaning sewer are our '"cleanliness martyrs'- Tarun Vijay in Rajya Sabha

Raising the issue of scavengers' deaths during sewer cleaning, BJP MP Tarun Vijay said in Rajya Sabha during Zero Hour that these 'cleanliness-martyrs' dont get any attention because they are treated like 'insects'. According to one estimate more than 22 thousand deaths occur every year . Though Supreme Court has ruled that in each case an immediate compensation of Rs ten lakhs be given yet in many cases the compensation given is as low as Rs 60 thousand and still their families have to run from pillar to post to get that. 
Stating  that its unfortunate to see only Valmikis caste among scheduled castes being engaged for the scavenging work, Tarun Vijay said that by law Valmikis should be prohibited from getting engaged in this work . Free Valmikis  from this stigma, and let the so called higher castes clean their own dirt.  Why should they need  Valmikis to do this sewere cleaning? Is it ordained by any Shastra that only such a csaste will do the sewer cleaning? Tarun Vijay told media persons.
He stgated that such sewer deaths are occuring in almost all states, as per the records of National Commission of Safai Karamcharis- and reports have been rceived from Haryana, Rajasthan, Maharashtra, Delhi and Tamilnadu also.
Tarun Vijay showed a copy of New Indian Express of 23rd January 2016, which carried the pic of a 19 year old teen 's body who died while cleaning sewer in Villupuram, Tamilnadu. 
Tarun Vijay said that these scavemngers are doing a work that nobody will be ready to do. Instead of honouring them,  respecting them and giving them a reasonable salary, they often get as low a salary as Rs two thousand per month. I demand that their minimum slary be increased to rs 20 thousand per month, Tarun Vijay said. while quoting a letter from Mr M Pugalendhi, President of Dr Ambedkar Adi Andhra Scavenger's Liberation Forum. 
Tarun Vijay quoted a Supreme Court judgement which clearly stated that" entering sewer lines without safety gears should be made a crime even in emergency situations. For each such death compensation of Rs 10 lakhs should be given to the family of the deceased. " But, Tarun Vijay said that in most cases the family of such decesaed has to struggle to get the compensation .
Why are we so insensitive to these 'angels of cleanliness? Tarun Vijay asked. Becuase dalits dying while doing the cleaning job do not have any vote bank?

RSS stands up for India and welfare of Indians- and demands ACTION against termites eating away the vitals of the nationhood

Resolution 1 - Need for effective health care and easy access to affordable medical services
Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh
Akhil Bharatiya Pratinidhi  Sabha 2016
11-13 March 2016, Nagaur, Rajasthan

Resolution No. 1
Need for effective health care and easy access to affordable medical services

It is most essential to pursue healthy and hygienic life style and provide access to medical facilities to the common people, for ensuring healthy and disease free life for all the citizens. Today, when the diseases arising out of unhealthy life styles are growing fast, medical services are becoming out of access for common citizens due to forbidding cost. Consequently, innumerable families are either getting indebted or large number of families are even deprived of their means of subsistence for want of treatment of the earning members of the family. Akhil Bharatiya Pratinidhi Sabha expresses its deep concern over this state.
For the sound health,  it is most necessary to accord significance to healthy diet, way of -living and lifestyle along with virtuousness, spirituality, yog, daily exercise and cleanliness. Children should be vaccinated timely. It is also very significant that society becomes free from all kinds of intoxications.  Akhil Bharatiya Pratinidhi Sabha is of the opinion that all the conscious citizens, including the sawaymsevaks should endeavour to arouse wider public awareness in this direction.
On account of concentration of medical facilities in the large towns, there is shortage of medical facilities in the remote  and rural areas. Large number of people are deprived of medical facilities due to inadequate medical facilities and shortage of medical personnel, and the long queues for admission,  diagnosis and treatment. Rising cost of medical education is one of the major causes for the expensive medical services and deterioration in their quality and credibility. Quality medical services should be accessible to all citizens, including women and children in the country. For this, well functioning medical services of all kinds and systems need to be expanded across the country especially in rural and tribal areas. Information technology should be effectively used for the continuity in treatment and expert counsel.
Hospitals run by various social, religious and community organisations  with charitable and philathropic attitude at various places in the country, have been providing treatment to the common people in society very effectively and judiciously. Government support needs to be extended to such endeavours, worth emulation. Appreciating all such endeavours, the Pratinidhi Sabha calls upon the country's industry groups, voluntary and social organisations and charitable trusts to further come forward in this direction. From this perspective, public and community partnerships and co-operative institutions  need to be promoted.
The schemes of free distribution of medicines started in some states in last few years and the proposal made for 3000 generic medicine centres by the central government in the recent budget are welcome moves. To bring medicines within the reach of common people, promotion of generic medicines, effective control of drug prices and making of the patents regime humane is necessary. To ensure the quality of medicines, they should be regularly tested in the laboratories. Standardisation and development of methods of testing of medicines of Ayurvedic, Unani and other systems is also important.
The Akhil Bharatiya Pratinidhi Sabha calls upon all the countrymen, including swayamsevaks, voluntary organisations and the government to endeavour to make lives of all citizens disease free by awakening the society for healthy life style, child and mother's healthcare, eradication of malnourishment and deaddiction against intoxication. For making all kinds of medical services accessible to common people, the central and state governments should bring requisite improvement in the infrastructure, policies and procedures, with the allocation of adequate resources. For this, coordinated expansion, regulation, teaching and research be promoted in all the systems of medicine, and the regulatory mechanism and statutory provisions be executed transparently.

Resolution No. 2
Accessible, affordable and quality education for all
Education is an essential means for the development of any nation and society for which; both the society and government are responsible for nourishing, promoting and patronizing it. Education is a tool for nurturing the seeds of attributes and potentialities of a pupil for development of his holistic personality. It is a primary responsibility of the government in a welfare state to ensure education and healthcare to every citizen along with food, clothing, shelter and work.
Bharat is a country with the highest number of youngsters. It is the responsibility of the government and society to make unhindered appropriate education available to its youth according to their aptitude, ability and quality for their participation in the scientific, technological, economic and social development of the nation. Today, all the parents want to impart good education to their wards. When there is appreciable rise in the number of pupils acquiring education, it has become difficult for them to get affordable quality education. Inadequate allocation on education and lack of priority to education in government policy during the preceding years has left open this field to the institutions with the motive of profit. Today, poor students are deprived of appropriate quality education. As a consequence, the growing economic disparity in the society is a serious concern for the whole nation.
In the contemporary education scenario, the governments must come forward towards its responsibility of allocating adequate resources and formulating appropriate policies. There is a need to curb the rising commercialization of the education sector so that the pupils are not compelled to acquire education at unaffordable costs. 
The government should strengthen the autonomous self-regulatory mechanism for the education institutions in terms of their quality, infrastructure, services conditions, fees and standards so that its policies and are implemented in a transparent manner.
The Akhil Bharatiya Pratinidhi Sabha is of the opinion that every child should get value based, nationalistic, employment-oriented and skill-based education in an atmosphere of equal opportunity. It is utmost essential to ensure proper training, appropriate salaries and strengthen the dutifulness of the teachers to enhance their standard; both in state run and private schools.
Traditionally our society has played a vital role in providing affordable quality education to the common man. In today’s context also, all the social, religious organizations, corporates, educationists and eminent people should come forward in this direction owning their responsibility.
The Akhil Bharatiya Pratinidhi Sabha calls upon the Central and State Governments and local bodies to ensure availability of requisite resources and necessary statutory mechanisms for imparting affordable quality education to all. It also appeals to the society to come forward in this noble cause of imparting education especially in the rural, tribal and undeveloped areas so that a worthy, able and knowledge driven society is created which will play its important role in the development and upliftment of the nation.

"If this is not sin, nothing is sin,"



BJP MP Tarun Vijay says caste discrimination's 'a sin against the Gods'
TNN | Jan 17, 2016, 12.29 PM IST
NELLIKUPPAM (Cuddalore): Uttarakhand MP Tarun Vijay said on Sunday that caste discrimination is not just inhuman, it's also against the Hindu religion and "a sin against the Gods". 

"If this is not sin, nothing is sin," Vijay said, addressing a Pongal gathering of Dalits in Nellikuppam village, where he said he was shocked to see separate cremation grounds and a 'two glass' system in tea shops for Dalits in this predominantly scheduled caste region.

At a separate event to distribute relief material to tribal villagers Vijay said that tribals and dalits should be brought into the national mainstream of progress. "Equality is the birthright of tribals and dalits," he said. 

Later, addressing a Nehru Yuva Kendra meeting at Cuddalore's famous, thousand-year-old ancient Tirupati temple campus to observe the Prime Minister's inauguration of the Startup campaign, he exhorted SC youth to take advantage of Startup India and be entrepreneurs.

"You can become the king of your destiny and leave the age of dependence. Startup India will help unshackle Dalits and poor from the atrocious traditions of discrimination and misery," Vijay said.


Tarun Vijay was felicitated by firebrand Dalit leader Ravi Kumar who presented him with a book written by Tamil Nadu's renowned Dalit politician Thol Thirumaavalavan, titled 'Talisman' which describes the atrocities and pain inflicted upon Tamil Nadu SCs.
