The Kaleem-Aseemanand encounter in a Hyderabad jail and its unimaginable fallout, as appeared in media, have brought an unprecedented moment in Indian history, a moment that could prove to be one of the rarest turning points of our time if we could take the opportunity in the right earnest. The two alleged terrorists, one Muslim and other Hindu, implicated in the same sort of cases and, supposedly the fierce enemies of each other, happened to meet behind the bar and caused a strong blow to the communal politics in the country just by a sheer touch of humanity. It is the time to reckon what for is there a communal divide in the country when it has no real worth in human life at all ? There is a need to further explore the idea how history brings forth the vanguards of change, how history takes its own bizarre tolls?

Some of the recent developments have put the premier Hindu organization Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, better known by the acronym RSS, and its many offshoots, in a very awkward position. It has to hectically defend itself on the charges of terrorism and the anticipated ban. May be the issue has a political bickering in the midst of the ongoing power struggle between the ‘secular’ India and a ‘Hindu’ India, of which Muslims and other minorities are just not the silent spectators but they themselves have been turned into the tug of war and the target of persecution from both the sides; however, it is the RSS’s sour responsibility to emerge clear on the board. The noose of investigation is getting tighter for a section of its present or former rank and file and if it fails to plead innocence it might be proscribed once more. 

The irony is that the RSS and its many affiliates are not distancing themselves from the conspiracies of ‘civil war’ which were apprehended to be hatched for creating ‘abhinava bharat’, a new India, through ‘cultural cleansing’ and total subordination of Muslims and others. Fortunately, the sordid vision has been caught in the budding stage of a camouflaged terrorism on the part of some radical Hindu groups, thanks to the dispassionately trend setting investigations of late Hemant Karkare and his team. The debate on the so-called ‘saffron terrorism’ and the implication of some RSS workers in a number of bomb blast cases have been publically decried by the RSS as the Congress malevolence against the ‘Hindu’ leadership. Even from the recently held Goa summit, where all prominent RSS leaders assembled for reflecting on the current situation, and the Gauhati national executive meeting of the BJP, strangely enough, the blame was imparted on ‘the Muslim appeasement’ as the cause of ‘persecution’ of RSS cadres.

It is understandable that no one can be regarded as guilty unless proven so beyond any point of doubt by the court of law and, therefore, one’s well wishers and sympathizers are justified to publically and legally defend the one whom they consider innocent. The RSS group also enjoys the same right for its associates, especially when, as an organization, it itself is not, and also should not be, the party to any alleged terrorist activity. However, there is a need to recall the days when Muslim youths were implicated in similar cases, mostly by framed or alleged evidences. The outcry was high against the so-called ‘Islamic terrorism’. Most people in the country believed it to be a real thing. In spite of the fact that out of 175 banned organizations from a cross section of society only 40 were having Muslim background, still ‘terrorism’ somehow became ‘Islamic’. The witch-hunt for every ‘potential’ Muslim hardliner, whether he is involved in any extremist activity or not, was witnessed by the Muslim community for a long, long time. It had been repeatedly pointed out, ‘Though all Muslims are not terrorists but all terrorists are Muslims’. Harsher laws for dealing with ‘terrorism’ were espoused. Violence perpetuated against Muslims in Godhara and against Christians in Kandhmal was justified on one or the other pretext, even while ignoring the friendly advice of Raj Dharma of the erstwhile prime minister of India Atal Bihari Vajpayee in the former case. Hundreds of Muslim youths, who could have otherwise contributed for the well being of their families and for the country, were put behind the bar; many of them are presently waiting for justice in Gujarat jails. 

Surely, the RSS cannot be solely blamed for whatever some sections of Muslims, Christians and Sikhs are facing today. There are others who often need their persecution as the ’need of the time’. May be there were a few real culprits from these communities who fell prey to some international conspiracies and to their own personal vengeance against the prevalent communal persecution in the country, but in most of the cases there has always been a clear sign of innocence, still the Hindu leadership directly or indirectly strengthened their plight. Recall all the statements appertained to terrorism in the last two decades; no doubt, those from this leadership comprise most of the tonnage of words on the issue. Now, there is a turnaround. History is playing its game. ‘Islam’ has been replaced by ‘saffron’, ‘Muslim terrorism’ by ‘Hindu terrorism’. The proverbial statement can now be pronounced like this “Though all RSS people are not terrorists but all terrorists (arrested recently) are RSS men”. If this historical organization claims impairment by media trials, Muslims have faced still a worse situation a few months back since they do not have any match with the political clout enjoyed by the RSS in the establishment. If the RSS leaders feel that investigating agencies are leaking ‘sensitive’ information to media the same was the situation earlier as well. You cannot enjoy a wrong thing while forgetting that some time it could befall on you as well.

There are Hindu activists who would be passing through the same sleepless nights as several Muslim families a few days back and even now. Just imagine had the acts like TADA and POTA still promulgated, all those Hindu radicals arrested by the police would have been automatically got convicted by the mere evidence of their confession in police custody itself and whatever extracted from them through police remand would have become a legal proof in any court of law; they are actually saved from that comfort of the prosecution since these draconian laws had got revoked in spite of the insistence of the Hindu leadership. Those who repeatedly banned a Muslim organization during their reign and feel to demand similar undemocratic prohibitions on other Muslim organizations from time to time are facing a looming possibility to test the same agony. The RSS activists always speak in terms of a retrogressive history but now they are on the verge of the revenge of history. History runs a callous cycle of events, no doubt.

There can be hardly any denial that India has come of a long way since the colonial tactics of communal divide as an instrument of power retention but some political movements and parties feel it to be an easy ride to power. Indian people, especially the youth, are now wise enough to chaff the populist issues from the issues of development. They are voicing against corruption, casteism and communalism as the three chronic ailments of Indian society. They are voting for progress and real ground level work. Now a younger generation, liberal and open-minded, is going to predominantly influence the power politics. In such a situation any communal card of this or that party is not going to entail much political gain. 

It should be deeply and seriously taken into account that basically there are four major political ideologies having some valid inroads among people; secularism, communism, Hindutva and Islam. They can compete with each other for a political space apart from a social one. It should be left to the wise people of the country to support them or not. There should be some rules of the game. Any foul play would be disastrous for the entire country. Recourse to violence and unfair means would always be counterproductive. The instruments of secularism and communism are often being used to unreasonably weaken Hindutva and Islam. Hindutva and Islam play against each other through the thin cover of secularism. In this context organizations espousing Hindutva have the democratic right to work and function. But, no one should be allowed to take law in his own hand whatever clout one enjoys in society. This can only harm the Indian nation (it is something not akin to a ‘Hindu’ nation as the RSS people chose to call). 

When the RSS says that accusation of ‘Hindu terrorism’ is fake and a politically motivated malice, and rubbish it as a Congress design for ‘Muslim appeasement’, it subtly concedes and endorses that the same sort of ‘design’ could have been operative against Muslims as well, perhaps for ‘Hindu appeasement’ especially in states where the BJP voted to power. If the police, ATSs, SITs, NIA and IB can be said as inclined to witch-hunt of RSS cadres, there is a strong possibility that the same sort of perpetration has been in practice against the Muslim youths as well. The RSS and its rank and file did not oppose such wrongs earlier, rather it is considered by many Muslims as the cause behind such persecutions of their kiths and kin. The RSS people cannot take the two-way advantage of a self-created situation. They cannot tacitly support or become instrument to a worsening situation of civil rights against other communities and complain the same when it rebounds. They cannot abuse Karkare for investigating against a Hindu radical and call him a great hero of the land when he is believed to be assassinated by a Muslim youth. So, one has to accept any of the two scenarios, either the police and investigating agencies are puppets of political lords now and earlier as well in case of Muslims or they are doing their sore job of maintaining social peace and law and order. Presumably, if the law enforcement has not allowed the alleged Muslim perpetrators inclined to violence, how it can be supposed to allow the alleged Hindu radicals doing the same. 

The Kaleem-Aseemanad encounter must open our eyes. It should bring home the futility of communal hatred as the philosophy of power struggle. Here a Muslim boy behaved as a selfless human being, and a Hindu saintly person, allegedly running for rooting out Muslims, has to surrender his soul seeing the boy’s bizarre behavior. This is the touch of humanity. Many such times came earlier as well but sporadically and locally. Maulana Sajjad Nomani narrates that when there was a communal flare up in Kanpur just after the demolition of Babri Masjid and some Hindus happened to bear the major brunt of the situation, apprehending worsening of the situation as a consequence he rushed with a team of Muslim youths for donating blood to the injured people. This changed the entire scenario. A similar incident happened when there was a bomb blast in Varanasi a few years back. Some Muslim youths associated with Samajwadi Party went to the hospital and donated blood to the wounded persons. As a consequence, the situation did not turn to be a communal strife. A few years back there was a stampede in the Chamunda Devi temple of Jodhpur Fort in Rajasthan where hundreds of Hindu pilgrims were rescued by the Muslims of the nearby localities; and, then came the book on Jinnah by Jaswant Singh the trustee of the temple. Muslim Kashmiris’ emergency help to Amaranth pilgrims several times is part of the Indian history. May be the Indian society is fraught with incidences of such gives and takes, in most of the localities, especially in critical times, but we hardly take a heed. We consider such examples as rare and extraordinary and fail to raise society on a better footing by generalizing them. Our hate and vengeance against each other, mostly perpetrated and propagated for ulterior motives, throws us to the nadir of beastliness. 

Here is the potential turning point for the RSS to rethink its methodology; and, surely there is a lesson for others as well who are engaged for an ideological change in the country. First of all it should come forward to unequivocally oppose just not ‘terrorism’ but ‘all shades of terrorism’. It should leave the fate of those who might or might not have been involved in terrorist acts but are presently facing police investigations and legal proceedings for the same, to the court of law. It should first pressurize the BJP-led governments to sincerely review terrorist cases for protecting the rights of innocents and unintended individuals leading to relief and release of those who are not really involved in any serious crime and see the nation standing behind it in case of any persecution of its cadres by any one. It should join hands for upholding human rights of others so that any violation of rights of its cadres could be checked. It should see that when the so-branded Muslim/Islamic terrorism was in debate the Muslim leadership undertook nation-wide campaigns through their different banners for mass awareness and building an atmosphere against violence in the name of religion. They impressed upon the community that Islam does not endorse rather calls it a sin to harm innocent people. Now it is the turn of the RSS to rise to the occasion and champion the cause of peace and harmony. Its silence on the gravity of the issue or taking recourse to simplistic diversionary tactics would only bring the reckoning time nearer.

Islam’s position under siege in Malaysia by Militant Datuk S.Nallakaruppan life member of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS)- National Volunteers Association Malysiakita Readers  Contracted toRuthless Gabbar Singh Encounter him

“I know him for 30 years. He cannot deny it’s not him.
“I have seen the video and I am 99.9% certain it is Anwar who is in the video. If it’s not him, why has he not sued ‘Datuk Trio’ for this?” he asked.
The MIUP president was Anwar’s former friend and tennis partner during the latter’s heydays in the ruling government.Nallakarupan then said former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad was right in sacking Anwar from the Cabinet in 1998 as all the allegations levelled against him then were true.
“Though I was also affected in the episode but Mahathir was telling the truth about Anwar,” he said, referring to his arrest in 1998 for unlawful possession of live ammunition.
He then called upon the masses to realise Anwar’s true character and accused him of dividing the Malays.
“Not only has he divided the Malays, he has also neglected the Indian community. Imagine what will happen to the country if he ever becomes prime minister?” he asked.

Fellow party vice-president Salahuddin Ayub said he did not want to pay heed to Nallakaruppan’s “request”.

“We will not humour him,” he said.
Bal Thackeray


The top PAS leadership has decided to ignore Datuk S. Nallakaruppan’s offer to dish the dirt on Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, most recently hit by a sex video scandal.
PAS leaders would only offer terse comments on the offer when contacted by The Malaysian Insider today.
“He (Nallakaruppan) doesn’t have to reveal anything… We know who Nallakaruppan is,” PAS vice-president Datuk Dr Mahfuz Omar said.
“So no need to go to the trouble to reveal anything.”
Fellow party vice-president Salahuddin Ayub said he did not want to pay heed to Nallakaruppan’s “request”.
“We will not humour him,” he said.
PAS information chief Idris Ahmad similarly said the Islamist party would ignore Nallakaruppan, while PAS secretary-general Datuk Mustafa Ali declined to comment.
Utusan Malaysia reported today that Nallakaruppan had said it was time for PAS spiritual leader Datuk Nik Aziz Nik Mat, party president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang, deputy president Nasharudin Mat Isa and Mustafa to know the real Anwar.
“PAS leaders can pick the time and place. I am ready to meet with them to explain the truth about Anwar, the man they call a leader,” Nallakaruppan had said.
“It would be best if I met with those leaders because they are the ones who call the shots in the party.”
The Malaysian Indian United Party (MIUP) president said the meeting was crucial to saving the Malaysian people, especially the Malays and strong PAS supporters.
He pointed out that there were many things about Anwar, who is also PKR de facto leader, who the PAS leaders did not know and needed to be told about.
“Don’t let them continue believing that whatever is revealed about Anwar are mere allegations,” he said.
Nallakaruppan added that he was not at all surprised when the sex video which allegedly shows Anwar having sex with a prostitute surfaced last week.

The Anti-Corruption Agency (ACA) wants Datuk S. Nallakaruppan to brief the agency over his allegation that Parti Keadilan Rakyat adviser Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim had received RM60 million from Magnum Corporation, of which he (Nallakaruppan) was a director.
As the allegation was serious, ACA Deputy Director-General I Datuk Abu Kassim Mohamed said, Nallakaruppan who was once Anwar’s friend, would be called as soon as possible by the agency.
“We are advising him to lodge an official report with us to explain his allegation. We need to gather vital information pertaining to the matter.
“ACA can only begin a probe if there’s a (official) report, and not through hearsay.
“Therefore, we want him to brief us first,” he told reporters after the closing ceremony of the Executive Certificate C
Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS)- National Volunteers Association
The RSS was founded in 1925 by Keshav Baliram Hegdewar is the ideological fountainhead of the modern Hindutva movement. Organized around the concept of Shakas, a local cell formation where young men would gather for physical and ideological training, under the tutelage of a brother or dada, the RSS ideology as espousing the national cause was articulated over the next decade or more. Madhav Sadashiv Golwalkar, who was anointed head of the RSS shortly before his death by Hegdewar, clarified the idea of the nation in his treatise “We, or Our Nationhood Defined”:
We belive that our notions today about the Nation are erroneous… It is but proper therefore, at this stage, to understand what the Western Scholars state as the Universal Nation idea and correct ourselves (p. 21).
Based on a racial idea of Nation Golwalkar in praise of Hitler says:
To keep up the purity of the Race and its culture, Germany shocked the world by her purging the country of the semitic Races – the Jews… Germany has also shown how well nigh impossible it is for Races and cultures, having differences going to the root, to be assimilated into one united whole, a good lesson for us in Hindusthan to learn and profit by (p. 35).
The above two quotes are only samples of what is a very clearly articulated twin pronged ideology of exclusion (of other races/religions) and supremacy (of Hindus). The RSS, cell like Shaka formation and the discipline inculcated within are central to its success as a fascist force. The RSS cultural and ideological work has not stayed within the boundaries of India. In the 1980′s the RSS itself broached out. The Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh (HSS), an organization modeled along RSS lines emerged in the US in the 1980′s, openly claiming allegiance to the founding principles of the RSS.
The RSS was founded in 1925 by the Maratha Brahmin Keshav Baliram Hegdewar [ Biju ] on the Aryan Vaishnava Holy day of Vijaya Dashami (the 10th day of the moon) when the Aryan invader Rama destroyed the Dravidian Empire of Lanka [ Sangh ]. This was done to symbolise its inherent anti-Sudra nature. Its organisation is highly skewed, with the Sar Sangh Chalak (supreme dictator) at the top [ Roots ]. This person can only be a Brahmin. It is the successor of Vivekananda and Arya Samaj in the Neo-Brahmanist fundamentalist movement. The militia is organised around local cells or `shakas’ where weapons are distributed to its hardcore members, who are drilled in a vigorous program of harsh discipline. Vishnu temples serve as repositories of weapons as well as centers of dissemination of its racist ideology of Aryan supremacy. Its only leaders have been blue-eyed Sarasvat Brahmins, a condition enshrined in its constitution. The Brahmin Golwalkar, the second leader of the RSS, was trained as one of the hardcore followers of Vivekananda.

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)- Indian People’s Party
This is Hindutva’s parliamentary front which constantly makes efforts to breach the secular formation through parliamentary actions – elections, pushing for legislations of various kinds, making visible the ideology in limited and constitutional ways within mainstream political discourse. The BJP came into existence after the collapse of the Janata Party which came to power after Mrs. Gandhi’s Emergency in 1979. The erstwhile Hindu parliamentary party – the Jan Sangh – had merged itself into the Janata Party in the wake of Emergency. However to call it a parliamentary party is to ignore its actual working. The party top leadership with few exceptions are all RSS cadre. The party participates in joint meetings with RSS leadership often. The election campaigns of the party are often significantly shaped and helped by RSS cadres of the local region campaigning for the party’s candidate. In short, in more than one ways the relation between BJP and other Hindutva organizations is quite clearly visible.Its top leaders are all hardcore Brahminist RSS cadres. All its leaders have been Brahmins too. Generally, RSS cadre graduate to the BJP.

VHP (Vishwa Hindu Parishad)- World Hindu Council
The VHP was founded on August 29, 1964 in Bombay with the clear aim of being the activist wing, that would undertake aggressive actions in civil society as a whole. The first general secretary of the VHP made its goals clear as follows:
It is therefore necessary in this age of competition and conflict to think of. and organise, the Hindu world to save itself from the evil eyes of all three {all three being Christianity, Islam and Communism).
(From the Organiser, Diwali Special, 1964.)
The VHP has gone on to do just that – spread out as a extra-parliamentary force throughout not just India, but the world. Its primary functions in India are to mobilize forces for agitational and violent purposes. It took part in the Cow Protection Movement though out the 60′s and the 70′s. The entire Babri Masjid movement was orchestrated by the VHP – steadfastly refusing to enter into any negotiation, rejecting the right of the judicial system in adjudicating on the issue and mobilizing often violent events with the clear intent of polarizing society and creating a political movement within public discourse of Hindutva – the Rath Yatras of the 1980′s and the final demolition of the Babri Masjid in 1992 were orchestrated by the VHP in association with its “youth wing” the Bajrang Dal. Again the strategy of the Hindutva combine as a whole is palpably apparent here. BJP leaders for instance would participate in VHP sponsored events, but when the results of such events came out – such as violence and killings – the BJP would conveniently distance itself temporarily from the VHP.
On the international front, the VHP’s success lies in mobilizing migrant Hindus, especially the middle class and lower middle class. The VHP of America and its student wing the Hindu Student Council (which is present on many US and Canadian campuses) is the most obvious example of its international mobilization. The VHP of America and HSC’s for instance conducted the the World Vision 2000 conference in Washington D.C in 1993, which became a rallying point for overseas Hindus and a ground for further recruitment in the wake of what many commentators called a “celebration” over the destruction of the mosque in India. The VHP of America and UK primary success can be seen if not in any other way in terms of financial clout – as it is the primary mode of channeling dollars and pounds into Hindutva politics back in India.
The council was established on August 29, 1964 in Bombay, Maharastra [ Biju ] with a political objective of establishing the supremacy of Hinduism all over the world. It obtains funds and recruits from Aryan Hindus all across the globe, especially from the US, UK and Canada and has grown to become the main fund-raising agency of Brahmanist Fundamentalism. The council was instrumental in the demolition of the holiest Islamic shrine in Oudh, the Babri Masjid at Ayodhya and has organised several massacres of Muslims and Christians. It is in the forefront in the call for a Hindu Rashtra, a Hindu State ethnically cleansed of its non-Aryan populations.

Bajrang Dal- Party of Hanuman
The militant wing of the VHP, it was formed “to counter `Sikh militancy’ ” during the Sikh Genocide of 1983-84 [ Bajrang ]. Created with the objective of the eradication of Sikhs which it has termed “Muslims in disguise”, its cadres fought alongside Congress-backed Hindutva militias during the massacre of 200,000 Sikhs under Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi. Recruits carry a ” knife-like trident to be slung across the shoulder – an answer to the Sikh kirpan ” [ Bajrang ]. It has subsequently expanded its targets to include Muslims and Christians as well.
Ranvir Sena- Army of Ranvir
The militia was founded in 1994 by `the merger of several upper-caste private armies such as the Savarna Liberation front and the Sunlight Sena’ [ Rama ] in order to combat Maoist Dalit organisations. It is essentially the Brahmin private army of Bihar. Enjoying clandestine Government support, the organisation is devoted to anti-Dalit terrorism and the preservation of the Vedic apartheid system. Its militiamen are known to be heavily armed with the most modern weaponry which is financed by the VHP, and the Sena has openly claimed responsibility for numerous massacres of landless Dalit Blacks and mass rapes of Dalit women. Human Rights Watch estimates the private army has been responsible for more than 400 deaths [ HRW ].

Shiv Sena- Shiva’s Army
The Shiva Sena arose as a movement amongst Congress members. It intitially unleashed a `physical annihilation’ of Communists (who were mainly Black) and against Dalits, and organised the mass murder of Bombay’s once-influential Black South Indian communities (`lungiwallahs’) and Gujaratis [ Roots ]. Subsequently, it engaged in the mass murder of 3000 Muslims [ Sri ]

ABVP- Indian Universities Council
This front comprises students of Hindu religious schools (vidyalayas). It has expanded its base by infiltration into `secular’ universities. Its higher-ranking cadres are well-equipped with weaponry; they often organise communal campus disturbances against Christians, Muslims, Sikhs, Buddhists and Jains. Most of its members graduate to become hardcore RSS and VHP militants.

Bharatiya Jan Sangh- Indic Race Party
Founded in October 1951 with the Bengal Brahmin Shyama Prasad Mookerjee as its president, who had resigned from the allied `soft’ Brahminist Congress in Apil 1950 [ Chandra ] was president until he died in 1953. Its cadres were carefully chosen indoctrinated activists. The second president, the Brahmin Mauli Chandra Sharma resigned in 1954 to protest against RSS domination of the party. It strove for an `Akhand Bharat’ [ Chandra ] ethnically cleansed of its Muslim, Christian and Black Sudroid Populations.

Hindu Mahasabha- Great Congress of Hindus
The Sabha began as `an extremist wing of the Congress Party’ [ Perry ] and was founded by the Maratha Brahmin Vinayak Damodar Sarvarkar. Influenced by `German racism’ [ Letter ] Sarvarkar sought to establish a racially pure Hindu state ethnically cleansed of its non-Hindu populations. Sarvarkar’s followers were involved in the brutal assasinations of of Sir Wyllie [ Sarvar ].
HSC (Hindu Students Council)- World Hindu Council
The `student wing’ of the VHP [ Biju ]. It conducted the the World Vision 2000 conference in Washington D.C in 1993 which was a celebration over the destruction of Babri Masjid and the attendant genocide of 5,000 Muslims [ Biju ]. It is involved in setting up hardcore Hindutva websites across the internet, spewing hatred against Christians, Muslims, Buddhists and Sikhs.

Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh (HSS)- Hindu Volunteers Association
The HSS was formed in the US in the 1980s, ` openly claiming allegiance to the founding principles of the RSS’ [ Biju ], in order to organise Hindu terrorists in America.

Arya Samaj- Society of Aryans
Founded by Dayanand Sarasvat (born 12 Feb 1824) [ Rao ] Swami Dayanand established the Arya Samaj in 1875. The Dayanand Anglo Vaidic schools (DAVs) are its propaganda wing, designed to raise a generation of brainwashed militants. Most of its students go on to become hardcore RSS and ABVP members. The Arya Samaj is the fountain of the Hindutva movement : `The rise of Hindu nationalism can be traced to the Arya Samaj in the late nineteenth century’ [ Perry ]. Dayananad Sarasvati was a bigoted anti-Islamist. This is what he had to say regarding Islam :
” Such teachings deserve to be utterly discarded. Such a book [ Quran ], such a prophet [ Mohammed ] and such a religion [ Islam ] do nothing but harm. The world would be better off without them. Wise men would do well to discard a religion so absurd and accept the Vedic faith which is absolutely free from error.” [Polemics], [ Sarasvati, p.633 ]
The raison-d’etre of the Arya Samaj was anti-Islamism and anti-Sikhism :
” Both of the early leaders of the militant Aryas, Pandit Lekh Ram and Lala Munshi Ram [in 1917 he became Swami Shraddhananda], died at the hands of Muslim assassins as a direct result of their involvement in communal activities — polemics and conversions. Lekh Ram was killed in 1897 due to hostile exchanges with the Ahmadiya sect of Qadian. Shraddhanand was murdered in 1926 due to his shuddhi activities in Delhi and the United Provinces.” [ Polemics ]
Ram Rajya Parishad
Council of the Kingdom of Ram
Formed with the explicit purpose of re-establishing Ram-Rajya (the Empire of Ram), its goal was the elimination of Sudroid Blacks (Dalits, Dravidians, Adivasis, Kolarians) and to establish a racially pure Aryan nation on the lines of Ram-Rajya. Jan Sangh, the Hindu Mahasabha and the Ram Rajya Parishad was 10 seats with 6.4 per cent of the votes. [ Chandra ] By 1967 it had disappeared.
Hindu hardliners have grown more vocal
Its founders felt the need to present Hinduism in a rigorous though simplified form which would be comparable to most other world religions. The superiority of other faiths was believed to stem from their being far less diffuse and more uniform than Hinduism.
VHP is a hardline Hindu outfit with unmistakably close ties to its parent organisation, the extremist RSS, whose objective to ‘Hinduise’ the Indian nation it shares.
Central to the RSS ideology has been the belief that real national unity and progress will come only when India is ‘purged’ of non-Hindus, or, when members of other communities subordinate themselves ‘willingly’ to ‘Hindu superiority.’
Linked groups
The VHP has tended to tone down the rhetoric of Hindu supremacy and even make an occasional distinction between fellow (Muslim) citizens of the present and (Muslim) ‘marauders’ of the past.
But the ambition of establishing a resurgent Hinduism by inculcating what some historians call a carefully constructed common ‘Hindu spirit’ is very much central to the VHP.

VHP extreme leaders Rallying for Nationalism in North India
The temple project enjoys a lot of support
This is also something it shares with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), which currently leads the Indian Government at the centre.
Earlier known as the Bharatiya Jana Sangh (BJS), the BJP was established in 1951 as a political wing of the RSS to counter rising public revulsion after the revered independence figure Mahatma Gandhi was assassinated by a former RSS member.
Some commentators say the party came close to obliteration in the 1960s with the Congress led by the charismatic and secular Jawaharlal Nehru, leaving little room for hardline communal politics.
But a political emergency announced by Nehru’s daughter, Indira Gandhi, in 1975 enabled the BJS leaders, Atal Behari Vajpayee and LK Advani among them, to gain near stardom after serving brief prison sentences.
Many women have joined the hardliners’ campaign,
But it didn’t really emerge as a political presence until the early 1980s. A series of events in that decade including the mass conversion of lower-caste Hindus to Islam pushed the BJP’s close affiliate, the VHP, to the forefront.
Historians say the VHP-led Hindu right considered the mass conversion of “dalits” or lower-caste Hindus to Islam to be an unforgivable insult.
The dalits, for centuries beholden to the upper castes, outraged Hindu hardliners by daring to convert at all, and moreover, convert to Islam.
The VHP saw this as a serious threat to its notion of Hinduism.

Despite murders of Dalit-Muslim converts, the leader of the VHP still claims the VHP are ‘peaceful’
It proceeded to whip up Hindu support for a re-defined communal force, organising a series of religious meetings, cross-country marches and processions through the 1980s.
This phase coincided with the launch of an electoral strategy by the BJP to corner and hold on to the “Hindu” vote.
Temple controversy
Following the success of their campaign, senior VHP leaders announced at a religious meeting in 1984 their programme to “liberate” a site in Ayodhya from an ancient mosque to make way for a temple to the Hindu god Ram.

Some ‘moderate’ Hindu leaders support the VHP
Analysts say this announcement heralded a turning point in the history of the Hindu nationalist movement.
The VHP has since then claimed that the site belongs rightfully to Hindu worshippers who believe that the mosque stood on the birthplace of the god, Lord Ram.
Although the claim does not stand up to substantial archaeological or historical scrutiny, the VHP and BJP are seen to have made possible the creation of a shared Hindu symbol that cuts through most divisions in Hindu society.
