It’s been more than a year that bereaved families of persons, who were shot, slashed with repeated blows, or set on fire during Delhi riots in February 2020 after Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led Bhartya Janta Party (BJP) introduced controversial citizenship bill, are waiting for justice.
This year in February, India’s Union Ministry of Culture, through its official Twitter handle paid tribute to Hindutva ideologue M.S. Golwalkar on his birth anniversary, the author of the hate philosophy against Muslims and one time head of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS).
The tribute under BJP rule clearly indicates that Golwalkar’s thoughts fit straight into the current anti-Muslim agenda of Modi.
Golwalkar, who had been opposing India’s founding father Gandhi and national flag, expounded on the racial superiority of Hindus through his books. He had also been arrested for the assassination of Gandhi.
He had great admiration for European fascism especially for Adolf Hitler and Mussolini as it was evident from his books where he writes: “To Keep up the Purity of the race and its culture, Germany shocked the world by purging the country of the semitic races – the Jews, race pride at its highest has been manifested here. Germany has also showing 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 Hindustan to learn and profit by”.
Shockingly, Modi, who has been part of the RSS since young age and involved in deadly Gujrat violence, has recently Golwalkar as a “guru worthy of Worship”.
The controversial Citizenship Amendment Act, which aims at Muslims, is testament to Modi’s acceptance of the politicis of Golwalkar and indicates that his direction is strikingly similar to that of Hitler’s policy to keep safe the pure German blood.
Inspired by hardline RSS group, BJP majority states are now gearing to implement love Jihad that make inter-marriages illegal regardless of conversion.
