PM Narendra Modi’s change of heart? Difficult to believe!

Posted on: December 20, 2014

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been quoted in a section of the media that he has threatened to quit if the RSS did not contain its front organisations like the Vishwa Hindu Parishad and the Bajrang Dal from creating problems for him by their unbridled utterances. No source of this momentous information has been cited. It is, therefore, difficult to say how far this is true.

If Modi has really conveyed such an intention to the Sangh Parivar bosses, it shows his fear of losing his own importance in the Parivar. It could also be a ploy to fool the people. Modi has grown up in the Sangh Parivar ideology and it is difficult to assume that he has become a reformed bigot within a few months of becoming the Prime Minister. Modi could never have imagined to reach that position without the active support of the RSS and all its affiliates. The RSS, naturally, did not sit him on the Delhi throne to become a Jawaharlal Nehru.

He must have been fully aware of the ‘Hindutva potential’ of Sadhvi Niranjan Jyoti, Yogi Adityanath, Sakshi Maharaj and such other fanatics when he cleared their tickets for Lok Sabha as he was holding the pre-eminent position in the party after he had got the party declare him as the prime ministerial candidate. One presumes that it was his own decision to include Sadhvi Niranjan Jyoti into his Council of Ministers. Before the Lok Sabha elections Modi was also saying, in his own style, the things which he is now reported to have found unpalatable to him.

Modi was known to be the most trusted lieutenant of RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat and nourished in Veer Savarkar’s teachings about the ‘collective guilt of the Muslims’. Veer Savarkar believed that the ‘Muslims need to be punished not only for what they themselves have done but what their co-religionists had done in the past’.

M S Golwalkar, another source of inspiration for the Sangh Parivar activists, Narendra Modi included, points out in his book ‘We or Our Nationhood Defined’ what Hitler had done in Germany. Subhash Gatage’s well-researched book ‘Godse’s Children – Hindutva Terror in India’ quotes from Golwalkar’s book to add: ‘…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’.

One who imbibed this ideology for nearly five decades becomes a liberal within a few month of getting power? Difficult to believe.

Value of propaganda

Adolf Hitler believed in the use of propaganda as an integral element to seizing and holding on to political power. His maxim was 'the bigger the lie, the more easily it will be believed, provided it is repeated vigorously and often enough'. (Sean Murphy in his book 'Letting the Side Down')
