Recently at the conclusion of RSS’s OTC (Officer Training Camp) in Nagpur, the formal Indian Air Force chief, Air Chief Marshal A Y Tipnis called RSS a traitor during his ‘valedictory address’.

“Every patriotic Indian should readily agree that we have singularly excellent and inspiring reference point in our Constitution. No matter what our different and often divergent beliefs, persuasions and ideologies, we have collectively committed ourselves to the ideals , values and principles enshrined in it,” said Tipnis who led the IAF’s decisive strikes in the Kargil war.

Reiterating that Constitution was supreme, he exhorted the RSS trainees to work for society without harming interests of anyone and keeping social fabric intact. “Justice and liberty are so paramount that fundamental rights guarantee them to very citizen without distinction of any kind including caste, creed, colour, faith belief and gender,” said Tipnis.

My understanding from that speech is that according to Tipnis, RSS doesn’t obey the constitution and its members should follow the Indian constitution. If that is not calling someone unpatriotic or traitor then what is? His speech clearly leaves the impression that he believes RSS to be anti-social, and its method to be against the interest of India.

I blame such blatant misunderstanding of RSS by even the most educated citizens of India to the backward thinking leadership of RSS. Time after time, RSS leadership has comprehensively failed to realize the importance of creating a positive public image of the Sangh Parivar organizations. Despite, the best intentions of numerous swayamsevaks, RSS leaders have been extremely lackluster in their approach in adapting to the new techniques, especially Internet and Mass Media.

Rather they have imbibed a mentality that the best solution to fight problems like liberal media is to run away from problems. Otherwise, what would explain their stands on creating hundreds of institutions to avoid the glare of media.

This is not limited to RSS alone but extends to other organizations, especially VHP.

Krishna leading ArjunaThere are lot of people who have misunderstood RSS, mostly because of media representations and also because RSS rarely bothers to explain itself clearly to outsiders. Most basic mis-understanding is what does RSS want to be?I have experienced RSS from closely based on my interaction with the senior leaders. I believe RSS wants to be only a chariator like Krishna and not a warrior like Arjuna. RSS wishes Hindu Society to be the Arjuna of the Mahabharat. It feels that Hindu Society has the necessary abilities to counter anything that stands in its path, but it has been floundered and confused just like Arjuna. Another metaphor is of Hanumna, who has forgotten his strengths and needs to be reminded of it again.

I think RSS can be best described metaphorically through the Krishna and Arjuna idea. Just like Krishna had the power to fight itself, similar to RSS, but Krishna only chose to guide Arjuna. Similarly, RSS wishes to guide the Hindu Society rather than fight its battle. It believes that whole society has to stand on its feet and be strong like Pandavas to fight the necessary evils prevailing all around us. This evil has manifested in society in different forms, whether it is casteism, pseudo-secularism or Christian conversion.

What do you think? Any other metaphors that might describe RSS better?

The way I see it right now is that Christians seems to have all they need to succeed in India. They have experience from converting other countries (Native North Americans, South Americans and Africa). They have a long term plan i.e. high quality English Medium Schools / Colleges. They have the motivation (save us from going to hell), they use latest methods (Internet, Radio, TV etc.), they are well structured (Red Cross, World Vision, Joshua Project etc.), they apparently have political power in India (Large number of Christian chief ministers) and outside India (USA), and above all they have the power of money from other nations (Christian Charities get $1.25 Billion in India … almost 600 Crore Rupees)

On the other hand, India’s experience to such on slaught (Buddhism, Muslims, Britishs) has been to initially loose and then partially restore the old status (By status means our culture, religion and way of life). Indians rarely seem to have long term plan, the best RSS has come up to counter Missionary schools is to create 3rd rate school that no sane middle class family should send their kids to. I myself went to RSS school for 2 years. Indians and especially Hindu organizations are at best pathetic and ignorant about latest tools such as Internet, TV, or Radio. For years, I have heard RSS workers give lectures on the futility of political power, but every time I read about their speeches in newspapers, it seems that their every demand requires a political solution. Be it Terrorism, Christian conversion, Ram Setu Project, Minority Appeasement, or Ram Mandir.

What do you think? Have you seen any concrete or long term plans to save India? Have you ever heard of Hindu organizations planning for next 5, 10 or even 15 years?

I am tried of listening to Hindus especially Sangh Swayamsevaks complaining and moaning like little babies about not getting fair coverage from media or any website that says anything bad about Sangh Parivar or Hinduism. If you are not tired of it then read here about Haindava Kerala’s complaint against Amrita TV  The RSS Orkut group or Hindu Unity Message Board is filled with such cry babies.

My simple answer to all these boneheaded people is that we have to start our news channel. Please please stop expecting someone else to give you any coverage or respect. Respect is earned and not given.

Just like it is foolish for a Muslim organization to expect proper coverage from Haindarav Keralam. We should stop wishing that someone else will give our due respect. We need to earn it, and not beg for it and cry like the author of Haindava Keralam article, every time some commie doesn’t like us.

Haindava Keralam and Hindu Jagruti have shown the way by creating a website which provides alternate source of news for the Hindu masses. This action needs to be repeated by other like minded Hindu and especially Hindu organizations such as RSS, VHP. Why hasn’t RSS website publishes anything about the work they are doing? Why isn’t there a single thing about the so called “Pratinidhi Sabha” that is all over media? If we don’t talk about ourself and if we don’t define ourself than others will do it for us.

Rather than complaining about others, lets create our own media by way of Internet, Community Radio, Local Newspapers and then maybe Television. Even in today’s day and age, where a 7 year old can create a website, the “mighty” RSS can’t even create a nice informational website that might help someone find out that they are somehow different than Al-Qaida.

As reported here http://www.haindavakeralam.org/PageModule.aspx?PageID=3139 . The Christians don’t leave any doubt about their intentions.

 

Joshua project -“Bringing Definition to unfinished task”

 

http://www.joshuaproject.net/index.php

 

How to destroy local culturesThe Tag line of the the Joshua project is “Bringing Definition to unfinished task”. It is anybodies guess what this unfinished task is? According to the website, the mission and passion of Joshua Project is to identify and highlight the people groups of the world that have the least exposure to the Gospel and the least Christian presence in their midst. Joshua Project shares this information to encourage pioneer church-planting movements among every ethnic people group.

Anybody who had any doubt on the thoroughness of Missionary work and the money they are pouring into this. Should take time to go thru the Joshua Website.

Another Interesting thing I stumbled upon while going thru the website is their strategic Discussion. Take time to go thru this. I went thru one paper which discussed the strategy on creating Christian Community . It reads like this:

“The mission station is similar to a service station; not that this is the theory behind it, but this is the way things have developed. Historically, this is most understandable. After initial contacts with the people and alter surveying the territory, mission organizers selected key locations for “stations.” The missionary, usually a priest, moved in and began to contact the people in a systematic way. Catechumens began their instructions, usually with the help of a native catechist brought from an older station. A house was built. The missionary would start a small clinic where he dispensed medical services and advice. Eventually the need for a school to provide systematic education for the children would be felt. At this point lay missionaries or sisters would arrive, and perhaps a brother as well. A church built of native materials would be built, and classrooms and a more adequate clinic for a full-time nurse to work in.

For the most part, these developments would be greeted with enthusiasm by the local populace as signs of modernization. After initial distrust had been overcome, little force would be needed to get parents to send their children to the schools, particularly when commercial developments made it apparent that education was a ticket to jobs, and jobs the ticket to the money which would purchase the clothing, kerosene lanterns, axes, fishing and hunting gear, and specialty foods which the people so much desired.

A generation or two would pass. Within fifty years virtually everyone in the locale would have become Christian. Outstations would have been established in the countryside around the main station, and more catechists would have been trained, either by the missionary or, increasingly, by the diocesan catechetical centers which would have gradually been established.”

Yes, who says Missionaries won’t practice what they preach?

This is exactly what cunning Missionaries was practicing ,is practicing and will practice,Unless Hindus awake from their deep slumber
