An open letter to venerable Ashok Singhalji in commemoration of 6th. December
Tapan Kumar Ghosh
Sadar Pranam(Obeissances unto you).
Ram Mandir movement was the greatest mass movement ever enacted in Indian history. Gandhi's mass movement had much lower participation, much fewer representations from every strata of society. The huge, unparalleled public support that we got was enough for demolishing that structure of four hundred and fifty years in just four and half hours. This public support ought to have been invested for the construction of Ram Temple.
In lieu of canalizing that unprecedented public support towards construction of Ram Temple, we very wrongly diverted it towards gaining political power. Our acquired ‘capital’ flew into political canal. The logic that was put forward in defence of this line was that after acquiring power, the temple would be built up by enacting new legislation. Actually, in deep sub conscious mind of the leadership fatigue and greed worked on. The same thing happened to Congress leadership in 1947. 'How long should we not be in opposition?' ' How long should we carry out agitation and struggle?'
To compromise with ideology and to politicise this Ram Mandir issue--this was not a sole BJP decision, the whole of Sangha Parivar took the decision. So, BJP alone is not responsible for renouncing ideology.
Three domes were demolished and a temporary temple with clothes was made. After all these happened, Narasimha Rao dismissed the Kalyan Singh Govt. in UP at 5 in the afternoon. Clearance of the rubbles of the structure took one more day. Karsevaks took two more days to leave Ayodhya and Faizabad. The Govt. did not arrest a single person out of lakhs of Karsevaks.
So called pro-Hindu BJP was not in power. How were all these possible with Congress, an out and out appeaser for Muslim votes being in power?
All these incidents clearly point out that Political leaders of all hue and cry understand the pulse of the people. Whether RSS has political power or not that does not matter. There was a great potentiality in the Ram Mandir movement and it was not an ordinary bomb but an atomic bomb which could unleash an earthquake beneath the chairs of Power and Pelf---this very truth was known to Rajiv, Narasimha and Congress. That is what made them comply with everything and bow down before the people’s sentiment. Their field is not people's power, their specialization is not on religious sentiment. Their only expertise is politics and they can play in political field only. As long as we were in our fields, we were in advantageous position. The moment we left our field and entered to play in their fields, we lost the advantage. The outcome,192 to 125. If we tread the same path, we shall reduce to cipher.
In a nutshell, not " First Power and then Temple" but " First temple and then power." We had to wait till we can win absolute majority on our own. Till that time we had to stick to temple issue and never to haste for power.
Today's Ram ( Hindu collective leadership) killed Bali ( demolition of Babri Masjid) and ascended the throne of Kiskindhya. So, Sita could not be rescued (Construction of Temple).
In the heart of London, a British school has made Sanskrit compulsory subject for its junior division because it helps students grasp math, science and other languages better.
“The Devnagri script and spoken Sanskrit are two of the best ways for a child to overcome stiffness of fingers and the tongue,” says Moss. “Today’s European languages do not use many parts of the tongue and mouth while speaking or many finger movements while writing, whereas Sanskrit helps immensely to develop cerebral dexterity through its phonetics.”
RAIPUR, Jan 18: The National Commission for Scheduled Castes has asked the State Governments not to use the word ‘Dalit’ in official documents, saying the term was “unconstitutional”.
The Commission has stated that sometimes the word ‘Dalit’ is used as a substitute for Scheduled Caste in official documents, sources in State Tribal Department said here today.
This “Dalit” word does not exist in Sanskrit, neither is it constitutional. Hindus should shun it like plague. It is only being promoted by the Church to give a false identity to a group of unrelated Hindu castes and organise them under a single banner so that they can take on the rest of Hindus. The church is a genocidal animal — remember Red Indians and Rwandans. Hindus should be careful about the vendors of religion of “love.”
Ayodhya: A Historical WatershedGirilal Jain06 Dec 2009
[On 9 December 1992, three days after the historic demolition of the Babri Masjid, Girilal Jain wrote a seminal piece in The Times of India, which silenced all intellectual opposition or exposed that there was no legitimate intellectual argument against this spontaneous decision by nameless and faceless Ram bhaktas.
Implicit in the above is the proposition that while India did not cease to be India either under Muslim or British rule despite all the trials and tribulations, she was not fully Mother India. And she was not fully Mother India not because she was called upon to digest external inputs, which is her nature to assimilate, but because she was not free to throw out what she could not possibly digest in the normal and natural course, This lack of freedom to reject what cannot be assimilated is the essence of foreign conquest and rule. The meaning of Ayodhya is that India has regained, to a larger extent than hitherto, the capacity to behave and act as a normal living organism. She has taken another big step towards self-affirmation.
First, no living culture is ever wholly autonomous; for no culture is an airtight sealed box; Indian culture, in particular, has been known for its catholicity and willingness to give as well as take. It withdrew into a shell when it felt gravely threatened and became rigid; but that is understandable; indeed, the surprise, if any, is that Indian culture survived the Islamic and Western onslaught at all.
Secondly, a culture, if it is not swallowed up by an incoming one, whether by way of proselytization or conquest or both, as the Egyptians and Iranians were by Islam, or if it is not destroyed as the Aztec was by the Portuguese and the Spaniards, must seek to recover; even Indians in Latin America have not given up the effort. Surely, since no one can possibly suggest that Indian culture was either swallowed up or destroyed; it is only natural that it should seek to recover its genuine self. Surely, this is neither an anti-Islamic nor anti-Western activity.
Similarly, while it cannot be denied that the RSS, the VHP, and the BJP have played a major role in mobilizing support for the cause of the temple, it should also be noted that they could not have achieved the success they have if the general atmosphere was not propitious and the time not ripe. Indeed, not to speak of Gandhiji who aroused and mobilized Hindus as no one had before him, fought the Christian missionary assault and successfully resisted the British imperialist designs to divide Harijans from Hindu society, it would be unfair to deny Nehru’s and Indira Gandhi’s contributions to the Hindu resurgence that we witness today. A civilizational revival, it may be pointed out, is a gradual, complex, and many-sided affair.
When a master idea seizes the mind, as socialism did in the twenties, and as Hindutva has done now, it must usher in radical change. In the twenties and the decades that followed before and after independence, conservative forces were not strong enough to resist the socialist idea. Similarly, conservative forces are not strong enough today to defeat the Hindutva ideal. There is a difference, though, for while the socialist ideal related primarily to economic reorganization and was elitist in its approach by virtue of being a Western import, Hindutva seeks, above all, to unleash the energies of a whole people which foreign rule froze or drove underground.
When a historic change of this magnitude takes place, intellectual confusion is generally unavoidable. The human mind, as a rule, trails behind events; it is not capable of anticipating them. But it should be possible to cut through the mass of confusion and get to the heart of the matter.
The heart of the matter is that if India’s vast spiritual (psychic in modern parlance) energies, largely dormant for centuries, had to be tapped, Hindus had to be aroused; they could be aroused only by the use of a powerful symbol; that symbol could only be Ram, as was evident in the twenties when the Mahatma moved millions by his talk of Ramrajya; once the symbol takes hold of the popular mind, as Ram did in the twenties and as it has done now, opposition to it generally adds to its appeal.
While almost everyone else is looking for scapegoats, to me it seems that every known actor is playing his or her allotted role in the vast drama that is being enacted. We are, as it were, witnessing the enactment of a modern version of Balmiki’s Ramayana.
The competition, as a shrewd Congress leader once said to me, has been between ‘communalism’ and ‘casteism’.

जी हाँ… अब सही समझे आप, आज 10 दिसम्बर को "विश्व मानवाधिकार दिवस" है, अब ज़रा सोचिये यदि हमारे महान मानवाधिकार संगठन न होते तो अफ़ज़ल गुरु को खुदा की गोद में (या शायद 72 हूरों की गोद में) बैठे कितने बरस बीत चुके होते, लेकिन ऐसा नहीं हो रहा…।
तात्पर्य यह कि, भाईयों जिस व्यक्ति की मौत लगभग तय हो चुकी हो, उसे पुनर्जन्म देने का काम किया है कांग्रेस और मानवाधिकार संगठनों ने, और आज मानवाधिकार दिवस है इसलिये हमें इसे अफ़ज़ल गुरु के "पुनर्जन्म दिवस" अर्थात बर्थ-डे के रूप में मनाना चाहिये।
