India is a cosmic chaos. There’s always a method to the madness in India. And, this is aptly applicable to what the Congress & like-minded parties in India are trying to achieve – Systematically break India. The Congress party, which is on the brink of being non-existent is facing a bankruptcy of ideas & has now officially resorted to the politics of Caste, Language, Tradition, North-South divide & Religion to name a few.
This hocus-pocus almost bizarre & blatantly divisive strategy is again in play in Karnataka. The UPA 2 was in power in Delhi as well as Karnataka when in 2013 the then UPA Govt. struck down the ‘separate religion’ tag for Lingayats.
In the recent elections in Gujarat, Rahul Gandhi completed his ‘Temple Run 1.0’ and that gave the Congress party a somewhat expected result. After 22 years of BJP rule in Gujarat, the Congress was able to cash-in on the anti-incumbency against the BJP in Gujarat & secured 16 seats & 2.5% more vote share than 2012, which was a virtual walkover given to the ruling party by the Congress, thanks to the solid charisma of one man – Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Congress’s divisive strategy
The Congress’ strategy is as clear as it can get – Divide India & by extension voters along ‘Caste Lines’ & push for an agenda where it’s easier for one to be identified as a member belonging to particular Caste than as an Indian. This agenda, if successful will go a long way in reviving the dying Congress & shift the discussion from ‘Growth & Development’ pushed by Prime Minister Modi & the BJP to ‘Caste ‘ based politics. The Caste based division alone could possibly dent the Modi-BJP Juggernaut.This is the Congress’ great hope to re-capture power at the Centre.
In November 2017, the Congress tried & tried very hard to unseat the BJP in Gujarat, and came decently close to scaring the BJP to a loss. Rahul Gandhi all along, during the campaign period was being championed as a Congress ‘vote catcher’ & he relentlessly campaigned through his bus tours and rallies. The Congress tried very hard to play a 2-level game, one was Rahul Gandhi talking about how Modi & BJP are bad for Gujarat how they divide people on communal & caste lines. The other, more interesting & more fascinating, unfortunately, was the complete surrender of the Congress campaign, at the ground level to the ‘Patidar’ Andolan & it’s then 23-year old leader Hardik Patel. In another Congress spinoff, which though had limited impact in terms of the Gujarat elections, the Left of Center Congress party & the Delhi Durbari media tomtomed to relative success is the new Dalit poster boy – Jignesh Mewani. The Congress put its weight behind entities like Hardik Patel, Jignesh Mewani, Rohit Vemula movement, etc… which are an open & shut case of ’Divisive Politics’. Another & more striking instance of Rahul Gandhi & Congress openly supporting the ‘Break India’ forces is the ideological tie-up between the likes of Kanhaiya Kumar & the Congress party fuelled by the Lutyens Media. Kanhaiya Kumar & the JNU Gang seem to have launched a pan-India campaign to malign & defame India’s rich culture & further break India across caste & community lines.
This hocus-pocus almost bizarre & blatantly divisive strategy is again in play in Karnataka. The UPA 2 was in power in Delhi as well as Karnataka when in 2013 the then UPA Govt. struck down the ‘separate religion’ tag for Lingayats. In 2018, the same Congress passed a bill in the Karnataka State Assembly to make Lingayats a separate religion. This sudden and fairly quick change of heart is not for the love of Lingayats but to divide the Lingayat vote ahead of the May 2018 Karnataka state elections. On the other hand, Congress’ leader & dynast Rahul Gandhi called Tipu a symbol of ‘communal harmony’ clearly with a strategy to consolidate minority votes while dividing Hindu votes, just for the sake of power. This, to the layperson, is blatant & shameless lust for power. One genuinely wonders if the Congress is following the footsteps of the British Raj which made sure to break the ‘Hindu Ecosystem’ to keep the Hindus divided & engineered caste based fault lines across communities.
‘Sanatana Dharma’ transcends any division across the lines of Caste, Creed & Religion. ‘Sanatana Dharma’ is not small enough to be the sole ideological, religious & cultural property of Hindus in Bharat only. ‘Sanatana Dharma’ belongs to anyone and everyone who is ‘Bharatiya’. The concepts of ‘Sanatana Dharma’ are applicable to each & every aspect of our personal, political & public life. And, a ‘sanatani’ should rise above these divisions which are first constructed & then deconstructed by the ‘Left movement’ in India to shame & de-mean our 5000-year-old history & culture. Indian Scriptures like the Bhagavad Gita don’t promote caste divisions based on birth, but stress only on ‘Guna’ & ‘Karma’. The Congress’ insistence on the idea of dividing Indians based on birth, is not just anti-Hindu but against humanity as well.
Political parties which were once the symbol of United India like the Indian National Congress, parties which fought for Socialism at one time and now are disgustingly capitalistic & dynastic in nature like the Samajwadi Party, Rashtriya Janata Dal, etc. along with like-minded entities like the Left-powered English Media will do all they can to break India & her strength, which is her Heritage & Culture of ‘Unity in Diversity’ in their quest for power. The only way in which we can grow as a nation, culture & continued heritage is through Unity & the principles of ‘Sanatana Dharma’.
