The inglorious Nazi strategy carried out to wipe out democracy and replace it with fascism does have a less-discussed affinity with the Hindutva strategy chalked out to convert
In both cases, all the governments need to do was to come up with a theory that would justify the arrests of innocent Muslims. Unsurprisingly, the media came to its help with an incredible enthusiasm. Blatant lies and cooked theories, especially those by the Hindus ‘in house terror pundit’ Praveen Swami, were dished out, to suit the government’s claims. Swami wrote fabulous fables dotted with his own clichés ‘revealing’ that this is the war against popular Islam and tolerant Sufi traditions. In his article turned up in the Hindu on Oct 12, 2007, he says “But the bombings also reflect less-understood project: the war of Islamist neoconservatives against the syncretic traditions and beliefs that characterise popular Islam in
The arrests of Devendra Gupta, an RSS pracharak, from Muzaffarpur in Bihar and Chandrasekhar, a key member of Abhinav Bharath, from Shajupur, Madhya Pradesh, underscores the truth that the Hindu terrorists operate in the country with lethal plans and sophisticated weapons. And they are so powerful that they managed to elude from glare of media and law-enforcement agencies so far. The Rajasthan ATS, now, suspects the brain behind three blasts-
One cannot help asking some serious questions regarding the credibility of the system which blatantly did what it did so far. Do the state and investigative agencies deliberately attempt to frame Muslim community for the crime they didn’t commit? How did these Hindu terror outfits manage to evade from the watchful eyes of law so far, and with whose help? Another stark truth came out later is that the arrested Muslim youths for Mecca Masjid blast were really rounded up before the blast and the cases were slapped on them later. Many of them were kept in jail for seven months and allegedly tortured, even, without filing any chargesheet. Later on, one senior police officer revealed that the list of suspects was given by Central Intelligence Bureau.
The big question that has been cleverly edged out of the ongoing debates is that why do Intelligence Bureau and other agencies come up with a ‘Muslims-behind-Blast’ theory whenever any bomb explodes in the country? The allegation of former Maharshtra senior police officer, SM Mushrif, who was instrumental in exposing the multi crore stamp paper scam, that ‘Brahminisist lobby’ has overpowered all the establishments in Intelligence Bureau seems true. That the infiltration of Hindutva power into these agencies undermines the very nature and the foundation of them is quite unequivocal now.
With several terror strikes being planned and carried out by extremist Hindu groups having allegiance to their parent organization RSS, how long can the government turn a deaf ear to this ‘harmless’ cultural organization? No doubt, it is futile to expect a nation to remain immune from the malice of terrorism if the government and investigative agencies fix their attention at one particular community letting the real perpetrators get away. At any cost, RSS and other hard core Hindutva organizations should be banned; otherwise gravest security threats to our nation may persist.
