भारत के प्रधानमंत्री को कैसा होना चाहिए ?

“जो हिमालय सा ऊंचा, गंगा सा विनम्र हो”- तरुण विजय

War Room

24 Apr 2009
Tarun Vijay

While Barack Obama is busy formulating an Af-Pak policy, we are busy in melting-point informatics and "my brother Rahul will become PM one day" kind
of family employment schemes. The Prime Minister "revealed" to a group of journalists that he had decided to resign if the nuclear deal with the US was not passed in Parliament. To fulfil his "kasam" to Washington, he silently saw the lawmakers' highest body turn into a mandi.

For him, his "kasam" was more important than the "maryada" of his nation's parliament.

I wish he had honoured in the same way his "kasam" to the Indian people – the oath he took while taking the office of Prime Minister, that bound him to protecting the lives of his people and giving a government that treated all citizens equally.

Pota was removed to please Muslims. A special reservation scheme was implemented at Aligarh Muslim University to have seats for a particular religious group reserved.
The Planning Commission allocated Rs 3,000 crore for minority (read Muslim) development schemes and banks were directed to give loans to the minorities at a special consideration. To address Kashmiri Muslim "sentiments", Afzal's hanging was delayed till the next government is formed. Ram Sethu was brutally assaulted and Rama's existence was denied – all before the eyes of Mr Nice and Dr Decent. Not a single word was spoken to address the sentiments of Hindus.

He kept a studied silence seeing the butchers of 1984 being protected and promoted as party candidates for Lok Sabha elections till a shoe throw compelled the leader to delist them.

So much for his "kasam" to provide impartial governance.

The "kasam" to protect the people and safeguard the honour of soldiers was "fulfilled" in such a manner that soldiers returned their war decorations and had to demonstrate like pariahs at Jantar Mantar. The government was busy decorating the liars and voices of terrorists.

And now, there is a controversy regarding a story sourced to the Special Investigating Tribunal blaming certain NGOs for cooking up ghastly stories of barbarism, which, the report says, never occurred. The person who has been charged having helped file such "cooked up" stories became a darling of the secular media noises in Delhi who would present her stories like a constitutional tribunal's report.

There is a contradiction which is further confusing as SIT is still silent on it. For the sake of justice and fair play, the truth must be investigated and the honour of the people, whichever side they might belong to, be restored. If the Kausar Bi story was filed truthfully, the criminals must be hanged in public along with the perpetrators of Godhra. But if it was a fabrication, the "writer" must be punished because if a mind can cook up such ghastly scenes, what will be the difference between what Kasab and his gang did in Mumbai and what these pen-pushers of the secular chill club do to India and her people? {NGOs, Teesta spiced up Gujarat riot incidents: SIT} A writer more known in London wrote a story as spine chilling as was the Godhra fire. It read, "A mob surrounded the house of former Congress MP Iqbal Ehsan Jaffri. His phone calls to the Director-General of Police, the Police Commissioner, the Chief Secretary, the Additional Chief Secretary (Home) were ignored. The mobile police vans around his house did not intervene. The mob broke into the house. They stripped his daughters and burned them alive. Then they beheaded Ehsan Jaffri and dismembered him. Of course it’s only a coincidence that Jaffri was a trenchant critic of Gujarat Chief Minister, Narendra Modi, during his campaign for the Rajkot Assembly by-election in February.'(Arundhati Roy’s article, Outlook, dated 6 May 2002).

Ehsaan was killed but the rest of the story was false for which Roy had to apologize. A people traumatized, painted black all over the globe, their character mutilated and just an apology?

And who were those killed in the Godhra train who never got a line from these "chroniclers of human tragedies"?

Just waste paper?

Read what the Union minister of state for home, Shriprakash Jaiswal, who belongs to the Congress, told Parliament on May 11, 2005: "790 Muslims and 254 Hindus were killed in the riots, 2,548 people were injured and 223 people were missing."

Who were those killed in Gujarat riots along with Muslims?

Just dirt?

The hate-Hindu cartel represents the hate of Ghaznis and Ghauris. They survive on the funds given to them by Congress-Communist groups and state powers controlled by them. Their social acceptability and glamour is enhanced by "praise for each other" societies. And Mr Nice and Dr Decent pats them with state awards.

Amid cacophony and intemperate language laced with shoe throws, criminals and convicted actors are having a field day canvassing for their parties and though a mature and stable democracy we pretend to be, the first casualty in this situation has been decency in public debate.

The poll scene has turned the nation into a war room. The last 62 years have witnessed our motherland's vivisection, a million people killed, 1.25 lakh sq km of land illegally occupied by aliens, massacres by Pakistani marauders in Mirpur and in Bihar by Maoist terror outfits, the jeep purchase scandal in 1948, a humiliation like 1962 when ordnance factories were ordered to make coffee machines instead on rifles, the Nagarwala mystery, the submarine scandal, wheat import commissions, farmers' suicides, forced exile of Kashmiri Hindus and desecration of more than 172 temples. The list is ever-growing amid inspiring stories of Indian people’s perseverance and achievements.

Isn't it time we rose above fault lines, gave a chance to an India that would make every Indian of every denomination, faith, colour and creed an equally proud partner? Can't we think and vote on issues that overpower religious, caste-based and parochial concerns? Will this war room kind of atmosphere result in a decisive mandate?

सेकुलर राजनीति की सच्चाई

गुजरात दंगों के संदर्भ में विशेष जांच दल की रपट से कथित सेकुलर वर्ग का झूठ उजागर होता देख रहे हैं तरुण विजय

20 April 2009

जिस समय प्राय: हर रोज सैनिकों और नागरिकों की आतंकवादियों द्वारा बर्बर हत्याओं के समाचार छप रहे हों उस समय यह देखकर लज्जा होती है कि भारतीय राजनेता परिवारवाद तथा मजहबी तुष्टीकरण के दलदल में फंसे हास्यास्पद बयान देने में व्यस्त है। गीता में भगवान श्रीकृष्ण ने कहा है कि 'स्वधर्मे निधनं श्रेय: परधर्मो भयावह' अर्थात् अपने धर्म पर अडिग रहते हुए मृत्यु भी प्राप्त हो तो वह श्रेयस्कर है। आज सत्ता का भोग करने वाले यदि अपने मूल राजधर्म के पथ से अलग रहते है तो एक दिन ऐसा आता है जब न तो उनका यश शेष रहता है और न ही पाप कर्म से अर्जित संपदा। लोकसभा चुनावों में अनर्गल आरोप-प्रत्यारोप, मिथ्या भाषण तथा गाली-गलौज का जो वातावरण बना है वह राजनीतिक कलुश का अस्थाई परिचय ही कराता है।

आजादी के बाद से अब तक देश में ऐसे अनेक मंत्री, मुख्यमंत्री और प्रधानमंत्री हुए जिन्होंने अपने-अपने कार्यकाल में विवादों, चर्चाओं और अकूत संपत्तिका आनंद लिया, परंतु उन सब में हम ऐसे किन्हीं दो-चार व्यक्तियों का स्मरण करते है जो अपनी संपत्तिनहीं, बल्कि कर्तव्य के कारण जनप्रिय हुए। पैसा कभी वास्तविक सम्मान नहीं दिलाता, इस बात को वे राजनेता भूल जाते है जो भारत की मूल हिंदू परंपरा सभ्यता और संस्कृति के प्रवाह पर चोट करना अपनी सेकुलर राजनीति का आधार बना बैठे है कि इस देश को हमेशा धर्म ने बचाया है सेकुलर सत्ता ने नहीं। अब तक कई हजार सांसद और विधायक बन गए है, परंतु उनमें से ऐसे कितने होंगे जिन्होंने पैसा नहीं, यश कमाया है? क्या वजह है कि सरदार पटेल और लाल बहादुर शास्त्री कांग्रेस नेता होते हुए भी शेष दलों में भी आदर और सम्मान पाते है और भाजपा के हिंदुत्वनिष्ठ राजनीति के पुरोधा डा. श्यामा प्रसाद मुखर्जी हों अथवा दीनदयाल उपाध्याय, उनके प्रति कभी कोई आघात नहीं कर पाया। वे संपदा और राजनीतिक प्रभुता न होते हुए भी दायरों से परे सम्मान के पात्र हुए।

गुजरात में दंगों की जांच के लिए गठित विशेष जांच टीम के प्रमुख एवं पूर्व सीबीआई निदेशक ने पिछले सप्ताह अपनी रिपोर्ट सर्वोच्च न्यायालय में दाखिल की, जिसमें कहा गया कि गुजरात दंगों के बारे में कुछ स्वयंसेवी संगठनों ने अपने कुछ नेताओं के कहने पर एक जैसे प्रारूप पर रौंगटे खड़े करने वाले जो आरोप लगाए थे वे सरासर झूठ और मनगढ़ंत थे। इसमें तीस्ता जावेद सीतलवाड़ का नाम सामने आया, जिन्होंने इस प्रकार के आरोप उछाले थे कि गर्भवती मुस्लिम महिला से हिंदुओं ने दुष्कर्म के बाद बर्बरतापूर्वक उसकी हत्या कर दी। विशेष जांच टीम ने स्पष्ट रूप से ऐसे चार उदाहरण प्रस्तुत किए है जिनमें एक कौसर बी की हत्या, दूसरा नरौडा पाटिया में कुएं में मुस्लिमों की लाशें फेंकने, तीसरा एक ब्रिटिश दंपत्तिकी हत्या का था। ये तीनों घटनाएं सैकड़ों मुसलमानों द्वारा एक जैसी भाषा और एक जैसे प्रारूप पर जांच टीम को दी गई थीं और तीनों ही झूठी साबित हुईं। हालांकि तीस्ता ने इस खबर का तीव्र खंडन किया है, लेकिन इस पर विशेष जांच टीम ने कोई टिप्पणी नहीं की है। अत: खंडन के दावों की भी जांच जरूरी है। ध्यान रहे, इसी प्रकार अरुंधती राय ने भी गुजरात दंगों के एक पक्ष का झूठा चित्रण किया था। यह कैसा सेकुलरवाद है जो अपने ही देश और समाज को बदनाम करने के लिए झूठ का सहारा लेने से भी नहीं हिचकता? यह कैसे प्रधानमंत्री हैं जो परमाणु संधि न होने की स्थिति में इस्तीफा देने के लिए तैयार रहते है, लेकिन नागरिकों को सुरक्षा देने में असमर्थ रहते हुए भी पद पर बने रहते हैं।

इस देश में एक ऐसा सेकुलर वर्ग खड़ा हो गया है जिसने हिंदुओं की संवेदना तथा प्रतीकों पर चोट करना अपना मकसद मान लिया है। इन दिनों विशेषकर जिस प्रकार उर्दू के कुछ अखबारों में जहर उगला जा रहा है वह 1947 से पहले के जहरीले माहौल की याद दिलाता है। ऐसी किसी संस्था या नेता पर कोई कार्रवाई नहीं होती। इस स्थिति में केवल देशभक्ति और राष्ट्रीयता के आधार पर एकजुटता ही अराष्ट्रीय तत्वों को परास्त कर सकती है। दुर्भाग्य से इस देश में हिंदुओं का पहला शत्रु हिंदू ही होता है। इसी स्थिति को बदलने के लिए डा. हेडगेवार ने राष्ट्रीय स्वयंसेवक संघ की स्थापना की थी, ताकि हिंदू एकजुटता स्थापित हो और इस देश का सांस्कृतिक प्रवाह सुरक्षित रह सके। भारत में हिंदू बहुलता संविधान सम्मत लोकतंत्र और बहुलवाद की गारंटी है। जिस दिन हिंदू अल्पसंख्यक होंगे या उनका मनोबल सेकुलर आघातों से तोड़ दिया जाएगा उस दिन भारत न सिर्फ अपनी पहचान खो देगा, बल्कि यहां भी अफगानिस्तान, पाकिस्तान और बांग्लादेश जैसी मजहबी मतांधता छा जाएगी। पानी, बिजली, सड़क, रोजगार, गरीबी उन्मूलन, विज्ञान और प्रौद्योगिकी का विकास, ग्रामीण सम्मान की पुनस्र्थापना राजधर्म के अंतर्गत अनिवार्य कर्तव्य है, लेकिन यही सब स्वयं में कभी भी राष्ट्र की पहचान नहीं बन सकते। अगर भौतिकता राष्ट्र की पहचान होती तो तिरंगे झंडे और यूनियन जैक में फर्क ही नहीं रहता।

आज देश की राजनीति को वह दृष्टि देने की जरूरत है जो भारतीयता की रक्षा कर सके। देश आज विदेशी विचारधाराओं और नव उपनिवेशवादी प्रहारों से लहूलुहान हो रहा है। जिहादी हमलों में साठ हजार से भी अधिक भारतीय मारे गए है। नक्सलवादी-माओवादी हमलों में 12 हजार से अधिक भारतीय मारे जा चुके है। इन आतंकवादियों के पास हमारे सैनिकों से बेहतर उपकरण और हथियार होते है। भारत सरकार पुलिस और अर्धसैनिक बलों को घटिया हथियार, सस्ती बुलेट प्रूफ जैकेट और अपर्याप्त प्रशिक्षण देकर अमानुषिक आतंकवादियों का सामना करने भेज देती है। राजधर्म का इससे बढ़कर और क्या पतन होगा? जिस राज में सैनिक अपने वीरता के अलंकरण वापस करने लगें और संत अपमानित व लांछित किए जाएं वहां के शासक अनाचार को ही प्रोत्साहित करने वाले कहे जाएंगे।

HSS celebrates Hindu New Year in Bangkok

Unity and devotion to Dharma keys to Hindu rejuvenation
-Tarun Vijay

A history was created in Thailand last week when for the first time grand celebration of Hindu new year was organized under the banner of the Hindu Swayamsewak Sangh (HSS) in Bangkok on 3rd April 2009. Shri Tarun Vijay, Director, Dr. Syama Prasad Mookerjee Research Foundation and a veteran journalist was the chief guest. Shri Chintamani Tripathi, Sanghchalak, HSS, Thailand, and President, VHP, Thailand presided while Shri Ashok Bajaj, President of the largest Hindu temple Dev Mandir was guest of honour. Several senior leaders of Hindu community and organisations were present on the occasion with a special presence of the cultural secretary from the Indian Embassy Shri Subir Datta.
The programme began with hoisting of Bhagwa Dhwaj and offering flowers at the portraits of King Bhumibal Adulyatej Rama the ninth, Bharat Mata, Dr. Hedgewar and Shri Guruji. Shri Tarun Vijay was warmly welcomed by several leaders of the Hindu organisations and with a scintillating Sangha geet by Shri Suresh, he was requested to give the baudhik. In his baudhik Shri Tarun Vijay gave details of the significance of the Hindu New Year, which is also celebrated in Thailand as Songkrem (13th April to 15th April). He said that Hindus world over are respected for their intelligence, loyalty to the adopted country and peaceful nature.’ Hindus dont bomb the country they adopt' he said amidst the roaring applause.
He appealed the Hindu organisations to shun their differences and forge a unity based on Hindu culture and civilisational moors.’ We are not Biharis, Punjabis or Gujaratis in a foreign land- just emphasize your Hinduness and that alone shall win you a place of honour on a foreign soil. He said Hindus are passing through a most difficult phase in their age old journey when not only they are assaulted geographically but also their soul is bruised and brutalized by the followers of exclusivist ideologies breeding hate and violence. Hindus are the only community in the world which has been assaulted most barbarically just for its faith and colour and a belief in pluralistic principles of universal brotherhood. This South Asian region has become a nightmarish area of attacks on Hindus reducing their geographic presence in an unprecedented manner-from Afghanistan to Dhaka. Hindu presence has been shrinking drastically in this region, he emphasized. Hence its time we must forge unity on the basis of Hindu Dharma, which alone is the guarantee to safeguard pluralism and a respect for the different viewpoint.
He said that Thai King Bhumibal Adulyatej has set a glaring example of devotion to culture and Dharma by naming the Bangkok International airport as Suvarnabhumi, which is an old Sanskrit name of the region. At the aiport the first most gracious and inspiring sculpture of ocean –Churning (Sagar Manthan) by Devas and Asuras with Shri Vishnu in the middle symbolizes the deep cultural affinities of Thai people with Hindus. This spirit of an unapologetic devotion to one’s cultural heritage has to be strengthened and imbibed, he said. He also gave details of the Hindu organisations’ march ahead in Bharat and said that its extraordinary that the largest Hindu organization on this planet has elected 59 year old Mohan Rao Bhagwat, as its global chief with unprecedented changes at every level bringing the young to the forefront of action. This has given a new hope and strengthened the trust in Hindu power that stands for the universal peace, mutual understanding and a harmonious message based on acceptance of cultural pluralism, so essential to resist and defeat nefarious terrorism affecting global societies. He noted that amazingly Ganesh Puja is finding a new popularity in Thailand and almost every home and business establishment has a Ganesh Puja corner that shows a positive sign for the future of this highly modern and forward looking society. In the politically turbulent times in Thailand, we must pray for the stability and peace strengthening the democratic set up, he said. Pt. Lalit Mohan Vyas, Chief Priest of Dev Mandir, called upon all Hindus to adhere to the basic tenets of their dharma. Dharma alone protects he said citing several vedic references.
Shri Dinesh Mani Dubey, Budhik Pramukh (incharge intellectual activities ) said that it’s a great day for the Hindus in Thailand as all the major Hindu organizations have come together to participate the Hindu new year-so rare for the Indian community abroad. He assured that more such programmes shall be organized in future to forge unity and a feeling of togetherness. Shri Umesh Mishra, organizer HSS, Thailand welcomed the guests and said that Hindus must shun their petty differences of language, provincialism and sectarianism so that a unity of purpose is achieved.
Shri Vijay Sharma, a veteran swayasewak conducted the proceedings. Leading stalwarts of the Indian community from difeent sections of Thai society attended the function. Amongst them were Shri Sushil Sarraf, Shri Rajkumar Mahta, Shri Satish Pahwa, Shri Lalit Kishore, Shri Sushil Dhanuka,President of Hindu Dharma Sabha and Chairman Vishnu Mandir Shri Krishna Datta Upadhyaya, and its secretary Shri Om Prakash Mishra, President of Thailand International Gita Ashram Shri Mahesh Agarwal, Shri Tejasvi Shukla, Coordinator of Hindu Buddh Samanvaya Shri Rajkumar Dubey, Shri Parmatma Tripathi, Shri Suresh Dube, and Shri Pramod Dube were amongst the distinguished gathering. Shri Yash, a greatly admired singer of the Hindu Bhajans sang a scintillating song accompanied by Shri Chandrakant.
