इतिहास दृष्टि- नेताजी सुभाष चन्द्र बोस के वैचारिक दुश्मन


इतहस दषट- नतज सभष चनदर

यह इतिहास का कडुवा सच है कि भारत की स्वतंत्रता के महानतम आदर्श सेनानी नेताजी सुभाष को, भारतीय राष्ट्रीय कांग्रेस के दो वरिष्ठतम नेताओं-महात्मा गांधी तथा पं. जवाहरलाल नेहरू से निरंतर बीस वर्षों (1921-1940) तक वैचारिक संघर्ष तथा उनकी महत्वाकांक्षाओं का कोपभाजन बनना पड़ा। उनका यह टकराव सुभाष की असीम नेतृत्व क्षमता व्यावहारिक सूझबूझ, राजनीतिक यथार्थवाद, राष्ट्रीय आंदोलन के प्रति भावी दृष्टि तथा नीति को लेकर रहा। नि:संदेह सुभाष के जीवन का एकमात्र लक्ष्य भारत की स्वतंत्रता था।

चहेते नेहरू

गांधीजी के संबंध पं. जवाहरलाल नेहरू तथा उनके पिता मोतीलाल नेहरू से गहरे थे। पं. मोतीलाल नेहरू गांधी से आठ वर्ष बड़े थे। अत: गांधीजी उन्हें बड़ा भाई कहते थे तथा उनके नखरे भी सहते थे। गांधीजी ने ही उन्हें 1919 की अमृतसर कांग्रेस का अध्यक्ष बनवाया था। अत्यधिक मद्यपान के व्यसनी होने पर भी उन्हें असहयोग आंदोलन में भाग लेने की अनुमति दी थी (जेल में भी नित्य उनकी शराब की व्यवस्था की गई थी), फरवरी 1922 में गांधी द्वारा अचानक आंदोलन स्थगित होने से, वे गांधीजी के विरुद्ध आपे से बाहर हो गए, गांधीजी के विरुद्ध स्वराज पार्टी की स्थापना कर दी। 1929 के लाहौर अधिवेशन के लिए अपने पुत्र जवाहरलाल नेहरू के लिए गांधीजी को मनाने में सफल हुए थे। उनका तर्क था कि यदि पं. नेहरू को न संभाला तो वह बिगड़ैल हो जाएगा या लाल (कम्युनिस्ट) बन जाएगा।

भारत के राष्ट्रीय आंदोलन में गांधीजी के सबसे चहेते पं. जवाहरलाल नेहरू थे। 1916 ई. में पं. नेहरू की गांधीजी से प्रथम भेंट लखनऊ अधिवेशन में हुई थी।


Mahatma Gandhi: The Dhritarashtra Of Modern India

Mahatma Gandhi- The

The great Pandurang Shastri once said that that the most adharmic thing that anyone did in the entire Mahabharata was a message sent by King Dhritirashtra to Yudhisthir prior to the outbreak of the Great War. The message was along the lines of:

“Dear Yudhisthir. You are righteous, but my sons are foolish and stubborn. You should know better than to fight a destructive war for a mere kingdom, when you know that everything in the world is fleeting and unreal. It is better for someone as righteous as you to live a simple religious life, or even live as a beggar, than to involve yourself in a struggle for a kingdom that is going to result in huge slaughter. If you avoid fighting this war, even if Duryodhan refuses to give you any land at all, you will have acted righteously and your name will be respected in this world and the next”.
This drew a sharp rebuke, most of all from Krishna.

The reason why this message of Dhritarashtra to Yudhisthir was considered to be the pinnacle of adharma and confusion is that it comes cloaked as righteousness and provides a metaphysical and spiritual argument to allow unrighteousness to rule society. It is quite a seductive argument at first glance and is capable on wreaking great havoc in the minds of the righteously inclined.


‘Why Is Our Indian Media So Negative?

Why Is Our Indian

Why is it that in India the media is so negative and wants to sensationalise everything?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar: This is nothing new; this is what we have inherited from the freedom movement. Because when we were slaves, when India was ruled by the British, our media had this tendency to blame everything and it was necessary. It was necessary to show a bleak picture of what was happening in the country. But that continued even after independence; the same mindset continued. This is the difference if you see between the international media and Indian media.

We are happy blaming ourselves. We are very happy showing negative things about ourselves. Once I was in a conference in Europe; there, one European journalist asked me this question, ‘I cannot understand why Indian media is so negative about its people and its country.’ In a way, he expressed wonder about it and he appreciated it also in some way. Here you don’t need someone from outside to come and criticise; you are good enough in doing that job. We can criticise ourselves. So, having said that, there is one positive aspect of it but a lot of negative aspects — that it shows a country in very, very poor light.

If you see the crime that happens in New York city — it is manifold times more than crime in whole of India. There are 50,000 homeless people in Los Angeles.


Islamic State map reveals it wants to take over by 2020, includes India

Islamic State map reveals it wants to take over by 2020 includes India

The Islamic State plans to take over large areas of the world, including almost the entire Indian subcontinent, according to a chilling map that features in a new book on the dreaded terror group. According to the map, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (IS) plans to take control of the Middle East, North Africa, most of the Indian subcontinent and parts of Europe, within the next five years, to complete its caliphate.

The caliphate — a state governed by Sharia law which IS plans to claim — covers areas from Spain in the west to China in the east, the Mirror reported citing the map. The map reveals the calculated way IS plans to take over the world by 2020. According to the map, Andalus is the Arabic name given to the parts of Spain, Portugal and France that were occupied by the Moors from the 8th to the 15th century while the Indian subcontinent would come under ‘Khurasan’.  BBC reporter Andrew Hosken, who includes the map of the targeted areas in his new book ‘Empire of Fear: Inside the Islamic State’, said IS wants “to take over all of what they see as the Islamic world”.

A seven-step IS programme, dating back almost 20 years, includes the US being provoked into declaring war on the Islamic world between 2000 and 2003 and an uprising against Arab rulers between 2010 and 2013, the report said. ISIS have up to 50,000 members and cash and assets of nearly 2 billion pounds, partly due to their control of oil and gas fields in Iraq and Syria, it said.


Savarkar & Modi: Beginning & End Of Hindutva

 Savarkar  MOdi“Whereas Nehruvians like to portray the RSS-BJP as a formidable enemy mercilessly pursuing the Hindu agenda, the fact is that most BJP stalwarts prefer to keep the Hindu agenda as far removed from their policies as possible. They serve their time in government and enjoy the perks of office, meanwhile hopefully cleaning up the economic mess that Congress has left behind, but never touching a serious Hindu concern with a barge-pole.” – Dr Koenraad Elst

Hate mongers

Hate mongers often need concocted stories to buttress their political message. In India, these are most common in that peculiar Indian form of hatred: anti-Brahminism. As the local counterpart to what anti-Semitism has been in the West, it fantasizes about how Brahmins have only domination over us lesser mortals as their uppermost concern. Everything a Brahmin does, just has to be a wily stratagem to manipulate others. With their greater book-orientedness and heavy overrepresentation in the writing professions, they control public discourse and make others look at the world through Brahminical glasses. No matter how you try to gain autonomy, they manage to outwit you, even to the point of taking control over progressive movements, even over anti-Brahminism.

Against such a formidable enemy, any means are justified. That may well be the reason why Abheek Barman chose to write the misleading opinion piece: “Why did PM Modi skip mentioning Savarkar at the Mathura rally?”. Alternatively, given the preponderance of borrowed, deformed and simply mistaken historical ideas in the anti-Brahmin movement, he may simply have been misinformed.


Five major problems the Indian Judicial System is facing

Five major problems the Indian

One of the oldest legal systems in the world today is the Indian judicial system and it still incorporates certain features inherited from the British judicial system during their centuries of colonial rule in India. The Indian Constitution, which is the supreme law of the country, provides the framework of the present legal and judicial system of the country. India’s judicial system follows a “common law system” along with the regulatory law and the statutory law. Another important feature of our legal system is that it is based on the adversarial system, in which two sides of the story is presented in every case to a neutral judge, who would then give a judgment based on the arguments and evidence of the case.

However, our judicial system faces certain inherent problems, which show the weaknesses and defects of the system, and which requires immediate reforms and accountability. There is a need for a

12 Reasons why there is chilling media silence over crime against Hindus

12 Reasons why there is chilling  1

In the course of recent years and particularly in the previous couple of months, there can be seen a pattern of highlighting Hindu violations against Muslims. Slaughtering of peaceful Hindus in Pakistan, Bangladesh or even in India is not considered important by the media, by government or by different political gatherings or by Human Rights industry in India.

chilling media silence over crimes against hindus

In a case where the wrongdoing is against the Muslim community or a minority gathering, there is bound to be a heated television debate on the topic but should it be something against the Hindu community, the silence on those very television channels is deafening. It unmistakably demonstrates that the media is not unbiased and is actively playing a partisan role.

Why the double standards? Why this discrimination?

Let us try and comprehend the reasons why this has been going on for a while now:

1). Television media is upon intent inculcating a feeling of victimhood among Muslims
