Need to save Hindu civilization and Hindu identity
Hindus have already lost the lands now known as Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Bangladesh which used to be Hindu lands.
With each passing day, even the present truncated India is getting de-Hinduised because after getting power in 2014, the BJP government has vastly expanded the Congress-led government’s pseudo-secular, discriminatory, and minority appeasing policies.
Fake secularism is the culprit
Logically in 1947, on India’s partition on a religious basis and the creation of Pakistan as demanded by the Muslim League, truncated India should have been declared a Hindu country. But instead, a strange variety of ‘secularism’ (where anything which is anti-Hindu and pro-minority) was foisted on truncated India.
The term “secularism” implies non-discrimination on grounds of religion; one nation and one law; the same laws and same rights for all citizens irrespective of their religion; justice for all and injustice for none.
Though Article 15(1) of the Indian Constitution prohibits discrimination against any citizen on grounds of religion, bogus ‘secularism’ practiced in India gives special rights to non-Hindus labelled as minorities, and discrimination and deprivation for Hindus, the majority.
Since almost all political parties are pseudo-secular, pseudo-secularism has been made an unofficial religion in India.
Such atrocious discrimination does not exist in any other democratic country.
This write-up explains how ‘pseudo-secularism’ practiced by various political parties has crippled Hindus and is destroying Hindu civilization; and that to liberate India from the slavery of fake-secularism, and to save the nation from looming disaster, patriots all over India must form a new nationalist political party.
Embodiment of pseudo-secularism
Though most political parties in India are pseudo-secular, let us see the record of the Indian National Congress and BJP, two main political parties which have a pan-India presence.
Indian National Congress has been in power for a major period since 1947, and its performance makes it the embodiment of pseudo-secularism.
Its Prime Minister’s declaration in December 2006 that minorities must have the first claim over national resources reflects the Congress Party’s ideology.
Its countless pseudo-secular actions since 1947 cannot be narrated in this brief article.
Therefore, besides its enactment of the “National Commission for Minorities Act, 1992” which divided the nation into majority and minority, only a few of the Congress-led government’s minority-centric policies from 2004 to 2014 are being mentioned here:
- The Congress-led government constituted Sachar Committee and started the Ministry of Minority Affairs in 2006.
- It passed the “Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act, 2009” which means the government’s control only over Hindu-run schools since minority-run schools are exempted from this Act.
- Implications of the Congress-led government’s above-mentioned discriminatory Acts and policies are discussed below in “BJP’s expansion of discrimination” since BJP has continued to implement the same.
BJP is a status-quoist and Gandhian.
BJP’s record shows that it uses nationalism as a tool to get power. But after getting power, it discards nationalism and embraces pseudo-secularism.
Thus, BJP’s pseudo-nationalism is as deplorable as Congress Party’s pseudo-secularism.
Unhappy with the Congress-led government’s discriminatory laws and minority-appeasing policies during 2004 to 2014; and impressed by the BJP’s promises of “justice to all and appeasement of none” and “Uniform Civil Code”, nationalists brought BJP into power in 2014.
But after getting power in 2014, BJP has abandoned “justice to all and appeasement of none” and “Uniform Civil Code”; and has wasted eight long years in continuing the Congress-led government’s discriminatory laws and in vastly expanding minority-appeasing policies which are destroying Hindu civilization.
Shockingly, after BJP’s victory in 2014, a prominent national leader like Dr. Subramanian Swamy whose relentless efforts demolished Congress Party and its top leadership’s credibility, and paved the path for BJP’s historic win, was kept out of government.
As a part of the government, Dr. Subramanian Swamy would have steered the nation to the right path.
BJP’s expansion of discrimination
Some examples of the BJP’s continuation of discriminatory laws and vast expansion of discriminatory policies are given as follows:
Nation’s division into majority and minority
BJP government has continued to implement the Congress government’s “National Commission for Minorities Act, 1992” which divided the nation into ‘majority’ and ‘minority’ on a religious basis by notifying Muslims, Christians, Sikhs, Buddhists, Zoroastrians as minorities in 1993, and Jains in 2014.
Special schemes for minorities
In 2006, leading a minority government with just 145 out of 543 seats in Lok Sabha, the Congress party created Sachar Committee and Minority Affairs Ministry.
Though while in opposition, BJP had condemned Sachar Committee and Minority Affairs Ministry as communal, divisive, and “appeasement” of minorities, and though having an absolute majority in Lok Sabha in 2014 and 2019, the ruling BJP has not abolished this Ministry.
Rather, BJP has vastly expanded minority-appeasement policies by launching many new schemes such as “Nai Manzil”, “Nai Udaan”, “Naya Savera”, “Shaadi Shagun”, “Padho Pardesh”, Pradhan Mantri Jan Vikas Karyakram, etc. for minorities.
The government is spending thousands of crores of rupees every year on financial and educational incentives, scholarships, etc. for minorities.
And after BJP won the 2019 elections, Prime Minister declared five crore scholarships for minorities in June 2019.
Right to Education Act, 2009
The Congress-led government passed the “Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act, 2009” which means the government’s control only over Hindu-run schools since minority-run schools are exempted from this Act.
This Act has made the cost of Hindu-run schools prohibitive closing thousands of Hindu-run schools.
BJP government has neither repealed nor amended this Act to ensure the same educational rights for all communities.
Hapless Uniform Civil Code
Although BJP’s election manifestoes of 2009, 2014, and 2019 had promised to implement the Uniform Civil Code; though Supreme Court has repeatedly suggested its enactment in many of its judgments; and Article 44 of the Indian Constitution stipulates that “The State shall endeavour to secure for the citizens a uniform civil code throughout the territory of India”, BJP has yet to fulfill its most important promise.
“Equal Rights” bills not passed
Despite having an absolute majority in Lok Sabha, BJP has not passed Dr. Satya Pal Singh’s Bill Number 226 of 2016 and Bill No 205 of 2019 seeking to give the same religious, educational, and cultural rights to Hindus as are enjoyed by minorities.
Therefore, discriminatory laws and policies continue.
BJP’s National Education Policy, 2020 expands minority appeasement in the field of education by creating the Socio-Economically Disadvantaged Groups (S.E.D.G.s) and including minorities also in “S.E.D.G.s” for special treatment regarding funds and scholarships, creation of colleges and universities, admissions for school and colleges, etc.
BJP has done nothing to liberate Hindu temples from the government’s control to treat Hindus at par with other communities in religious matters.
In any democracy, politics is the most potent instrument to protect; or destroy.
Since those who behave like sheep are trampled by wolves, the fact that most Hindus are apolitical and passive has made Hindus permanent victims of discrimination and deprivation.
As pseudo-secularism being practiced since 1947 has destroyed much of Bharat and its civilization, the problems faced by Hindus and Hindu civilization are political problems that can be solved only politically.
As already explained, both Congress and BJP are Gandhian, pseudo-secular, and minority appeasing.
Other political parties also follow pseudo-secularism. Or have a limited presence.
Since no party is opposing the discrimination being continued by the BJP government, victims of discrimination have become political orphans.
Since victims of discrimination have become political orphans, the only way to save Hindu civilization and the Hindu identity of truncated India is that the patriots all over India must stop wailing; and start forming, a new political party to wield political power for implementing the nationalist agenda.
Self-serving politicians having politics as their profession can never bring the desired change in the country. Only selfless nationalists treating politics as their sacred duty can save the nation from disaster.
The new party would liberate India from the slavery of pseudo-secularism. It would dismantle the communal, divisive, discriminatory, and destructive fake-secular edifice.
This party will also fulfill the constitutional obligation to implement the Uniform Civil Code as per Article 44 of the Constitution of India. It will abolish the Ministry of Minority Affairs, and help all deserving Indian citizens irrespective of their religion.
In the liberated polity, there would be no majority and no minority. There would be only humans, only citizens. All citizens would be governed by the same laws, and enjoy the same and equal rights irrespective of their religion.
Since there would be one law and one nation, the new party will transform India into a strong, equitable, really secular, united, and vibrant nation.
The new party will ensure that Hindu civilization survives, and our cherished hopes and dreams shall never die.
For those doubting the importance of politics, I conclude with the words of American patriot Ralph Nader, “If you are not turned on by politics, politics will turn on you”.
