Five years before PTI reported this on what I wrote on Gohana. What has changed since?

RSS mouthpiece blasts Hindu hypocrisy

PTI | September 04, 2005 | 19:58 IST

Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh has blamed 'Hindu hypocrisy and upper caste arrogance' for the recent arson in Gohana town of Haryana in which several Dalit houses were set ablaze.

'Even if we try to view the incident in Gohana, removed from the political angle, it reflects the hypocrisy of the Hindu society and the cheapness and arrogance, which goes against national interests, of the so-called upper castes,' Tarun Vijay, editor of RSS mouthpiece Panchjanya said in a write-up in the latest issue.

Maintaining that the incident was 'neither surprising nor new', he said the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes in Haryana, Punjab, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Rajasthan were victims of 'deep rooted hatred and neglect'.

'The so-called upper castes cover up all their misdeeds overtly and covertly through their fellow clansmen in the administration and media. Irrespective of parties and their colours, they are all alike when it comes to atrocities on the deprived sections,' it said.

Referring to the BJP's September 1 decision to send a 'fact-finding team' to Gohana, he said 'the incident took place on August 27. The houses were set on fire on August 31.

'The news dominated every newspaper and television channel but till now, we have not heard of a single important Hindu political or social leader having visited the area.'

want a Hindu Rashtra, Hindus of all castes have to unite.. I would request RSS to become a facilitator in unifying all castes of Hindus by organising rallies all over India where the partcipants should be from all Hindu castes.. RSS should take this step urgently..

Nobody will deny that this particular incident was deplorable, but it is absurd to claim that Hindu upper classes dominate media. In fact the vice versa is true. They are slandered even when they are not guilty and they have absolutely no voice in politics or for that matter any other institution. All those upper caste members who are in influential positions are the mouthpiece of socialism, Communism or some of their sister brand. (BJP is not very far from CPI, if we consider their actions.)

Hence the upper classes have no voice. They have few choices in govt. jobs and are discriminated against when it comes to any public matter.

Wonder who is gonna write about that.

The Question is whether the initial violence was actually perpetrated by the so-called upper caste Hindus...

We should know several people in the south with last names of Gowda, Menon, Shetty or even the Brahmin Iyers are secretly Christian by faith and occupation.. It's also an open secret that many of the so-called high-caste North Indian castes like Rajputs and Jats have Muslim relatives.. I have seen Sharmas from Assam and Singhs from Manipur working as paid evangelists in Bangalore

In such an anti-national-infested society, anybody can take advantage of the delicate inter-community bonds that exist in the society.. It indeed is great that Hindu culture offers room for everybody.. but we should have a genetic code of Hindus... so people ill-willed alien-funded forces will not have an opportunity to misuse the Hindu nationalist brand

It indeed is great that Hindu culture offers room for everybody.. but we should have India's scientists to define and narrow down a genetic code of Hindus... so people ill-willed alien-funded forces will not have an opportunity to misuse the Hindu nationalist brand... all religions, races, castes, and communities must co-exist peacefully.. But, we should stop this dangerous activity of non-Indian nationals using Hindu nationalism to destroy Bharath
