Exit Christ! Exit Conversion!!



V. SUNDARAM




“We must get rid of that Christ, we must get rid of that Christ!” so spoke Ralf Waldo Emerson (1803-1882), one of the wisest and one of the most loveable of men. Thomas Carlyle (1795-1881), wrote thus in 1850, “If I had my way, the world would hear a pretty stern command – EXIT CHRIST!”

The great English poet P.B Shelley (1792-1822) paid this poetic tribute to Jesus Christ: “Who was Christ? He is called the “divine teacher”. Yes, -

He led
The crowd, he taught them justice, truth, and peace,
In semblance, but he lit within their souls
The quenchless flames of zeal, and blessed the sword
He brought on Earth to satiate with the blood
Of truth and freedom his malignant soul!”


Since the days of Emerson and Carlyle in the 19th Century, a revolution has taken place in the thoughts of men all over the world and more particularly in Europe, U.S.A and the Western World. From their minds Jesus Christ has made his EXIT. To quote the words of Professor Goldwin Smith, “The mighty and Supreme Jesus who was to transfigure all humanity by his divine wit and grace --- this Jesus has flown.” The Supernatural Christ of the New Testament, the God of Orthodox Christianity, is dead in the West. NOT SO IN A PSEUDO-SECULAR ANTI-HINDU, CHRISTIANITY-EMBRACING COUNTRY LIKE INDIA. The UPA II Government of India, under the stranglehold of a woman Catholic usurper from Italy (the firangi memsahib to be precise), is functioning as the most potent marketing manager of proselytising Catholic Christianity and Protestant Christianity. India today has become a despicable land of rampantly fraudulent Christian conversions with the full political support of Sonia Congress UPA II Government in New Delhi.

The solid foundations of today’s Christian Church thievery and state-assisted dacoity in India were solidly laid during the colonial days of British Raj. Recently, I came across a copy of a journal called ‘THE ARYAN PATH’. I have presented the Front Cover of the August 1944 issue of this Journal below.



I came across the following news item in this issue of ‘The Aryan Path’

“Verrier Elwin’s renewed protest against the proselytizing activities of Christian Missionaries in the Wholly and Partially Excluded Areas deserves immediate attention. His account of proselytizing methods, particularly in the Mandla District, appeared in the Bombay Chronicle of 14th June. Not only, he indicates, are conversions effected through the offer of facilities, e.g., schools, but more objectionable methods are reported of exploiting the ignorance and poverty of the tribal people. Money-lending in impoverished India offers great opportunity, no doubt, through disinterested philanthropy, but it does establish a hold on the borrower. It should, in their own reputation’s interest, be eschewed by those who have a stake in getting helpless illiterates under their influence. Mr Elwin cites a case in which a too zealous missionary propagandist resorted to a threat of force against one of Mr Elwin’s own workers if he dared to oppose the Christians. Already the Dutch Catholic Missionaries are operating through more than a hundred minor centres, besides their Sijhora Training School with its thirty buildings. The withdrawal of a part of the Government Grant to this institution has apparently embarrassed them not at all. And Mandla is being invaded by Protestant missionaries as well. Mr Elwin charges openly that nearly every day he hears of new converts being “tricked, bullied or purchased into the Church”. The fact that the areas are nominally segregated has been helpful in avoiding public scrutiny of proselytizing methods “that would have been considered disgraceful in the Middle Ages”. The ostensible segregation was designed to preserve the cultural and religious integrity of the aboriginal population, and this is the way their cultural interests are being guarded. Without imputing any deliberate connivance on the part of the Government, its allowing of foreign missionaries an almost free hand must lay it open to misunderstanding. Mr Elwin demands that all schools opened in Mandla District since the passing of the Act of 1935 be taken over by the Government and that missionary money-lending and proselytizing activities generally be prohibited in all Excluded Areas.”



Verrier Elwin (1902–1964)

Verrier Elwin was a self-trained anthropologist, ethnologist and tribal activist, who began his career in India as a Christian missionary. He was a charismatic figure who first abandoned the clergy, to work with Mahatma Gandhi and the Indian National Congress, later converted to Hinduism in 1935 after staying in the Gandhian ashram.

After Independence, Nehru appointed him as an adviser on tribal affairs for north-eastern India. Later he became the Anthropological Adviser to the Government of NEFA (now Arunachal Pradesh). His autobiography, The Tribal World of Verrier Elwin won him the 1965 Sahitya Akademi Award in English Language, given by the Sahitya Akademi, India's National Academy of Letters.



Priyadarshan Pant



My esteemed friend Priyadarshan Pant from Mumbai has sent me a beautiful article written by him in which he has written with great feeling of anguish against forced or induced Christian conversions in India and how many traditional Hindu families get wrenched from their ROOTS. He has rightly compared this pernicious process with what he calls the UPROOTING OF TREES in a forest. I am giving below the full text of this article:


OF TREES FLOATING IN THE GARDEN

Normally, trees growing anywhere are known by the locality they grow in. Thus, a tree which is growing in Rani Lakshmibai Park would be termed as belonging to Rani Lakshmibai Park. Similarly, if a tree is growing in my garden, I might say that that tree belongs to or is part of my garden and so on. On the other hand, if there is a tree lying uprooted in a field and finding that there is no cavity in the ground where that tree may have once stood, if someone were to ask where that tree belonged to, the answer might be – I don’t know. Why? Because we don’t know where its roots were!

Human beings are much the same as trees, as far as their roots are concerned. Humans too have roots and sometimes these roots are much stronger and deeper than roots that are visible to the naked eye. Amongst other things, Patriotism grows out of these roots.

A tree takes in air, water, minerals from its environment and gives back to its environment – clean air; flowers; fruits; cool shade; eco-balance; a beautiful ambience; poetry; literature; music and more.

A man living in a particular country would normally be taking sustenance from things in that country. He would observe the local rules, customs, norms, mores etc. and have much in common with other citizens of that country. Much the same as monkeys live with other monkeys he too would feel at home in his home country since he has so many things in common with others around him. This is the normal scenario.

Unlike trees which cannot float and live, a man can! He can continue to live in one and the same place and, only by programming his mind, a “disconnect” could be created between him and his surrounds. Thus, when a man converts to another religion, at least in India, he starts learning and speaking the language that is perceived as belonging to that religion – for instance, Urdu and Farsi for a convert to Islam, and English for a convert to Christianity. A woman convert may start wearing burqas or frocks as the case may be; her name would become Ayesha or Mary; men would shave off their moustaches and start wearing dirty perforated caps with short pyjamas and long kurtas to boot; Id and Christmas start getting celebrated – just as they are done in the respective lands of their origin; psalms are sung instead of bhajans and the loud speakers shout azans at a deafening 200 db; Mama must become Mamu or Uncle and Chacha must become Chachu or Uncle and so on. Local Hindu customs are discarded as being pagan, heathen or plain kafiri in the new religious incarnation. What were once the customs and religion of their forefathers for thousands of years and continue to be so for crores of their brothers and sisters, in an instant become things to fight against and “root” out. The human being thus shows itself out to be a strange kind of Tree – one that will bite, cut and destroy its own roots!

The jihadis and the crusaders say that their religions and only their respective gods are true. Neither the jihadis nor the crusaders pause to answer a few questions – What is the real name of God? Does he have a name at all? Why should {a (hopefully) just and correct thinking} God favour one set of men (say, Muslims or Christians) and not another (Hindus)? Does God have a religion? If God is Christian or Muslim, would he not be going to a Church or Mosque? If he is God then does he need to go to a Church or Mosque or a Temple?

Some Hindus go to temples and some don’t; some Hindus believe that God has form and some don’t; some Hindus believe in caste and some don’t and so on. The plain and simple fact the Hindus know is that God is known by many names; He has many forms but is only one! How come this is missed by the other religionists? It could, of course, be that now they have come to know the truth from the Hindus but they do not want to acknowledge it as that might lead to terrible monetary and political losses.

Why do people convert to other religions? The reasons are as varied as one can think them out but the major ones are – pecuniary or plain conning.

The harm that is done to a country that is beset with the accursed problem of “foreign religious conversions” is terrible, to say the least. Even as it is, there are so many divisions in society – language, money, caste, regions and regionalism as promoted by the government etc. On these are superimposed the foreign religious divides. INSTEAD OF UNIFYING US, FOREIGN RELIGIOUS CONVERSIONS DIVIDE US. The problem of blind beliefs (religious beliefs too are blind for the vast majority) continues; poverty, ignorance, follow-the-stupid-leader, indiscipline etc. all continue. Why then should any government interested in the well-being of a country allow foreign religious conversions? This could have only three possible answers – the government is stupid, a knave or both!

Whether religious conversions are mainly foreign in nature can be easily answered by the gargantuan proportions inflows of foreign funds have taken. These funds go into Christian and Muslim organizations, churches, mosques, so-called charities etc. The funds are then made to flow through many streams (books, pamphlets, television, teams upon teams of proselytizers etc.) into breaking Hindu Society, building more churches and mosques and even into jihadi terrorism.

The question we must ask of the government and the floating trees is how far will they go – would they even sell our own mother to gain, be it political power, money and other within-nose-tip-range benefits? VANDE MATARAM!

Swami Dayanand Saraswati, the Convenor of the Hindu Dharma Acharya Sabha views every act of Christian conversion as an act of unprovoked violence. In this context, let me quote the words of this great and revolutionary champion of Hinduism and Sanatana Dharma

“Christians, regardless of their denomination, are mandated by their theology to ‘bear witness to Christ’ which, in simple terms, means sharing the faith with a stranger. Why share the faith with a stranger? The vast majority of Christian believers are firmly convinced that unless a person ‘accepts Christ as his saviour’, he is, at the very least, denied entry to Heaven. More extreme, but not less common, believers are convinced that he will definitely go to Hell - and forever. So, given the theological compulsion to share the faith with a stranger, a serious Christian has no option except to exert and ‘save’ the person, inevitably a non-Christian, from such a fate. That is to say convert him to Christianity. See the effect. Obviously the theological belief that no faith other than Christianity can guarantee salvation, or that other faiths can only lead to Hell, cannot amount to honouring non-Christian religions. Can a Christian, who believes this, view a non-Christian religion as anything but inferior or, as is often the case, dangerous? So in the innocuous mandate to ‘bear witness’ to Christ inheres the denigration of the religion of the ‘other’, if not explicitly, certainly implicitly. Herein lies concealed the propensity and the potential for disharmony, for, when one’s religion is denigrated a great violence is done to what one holds most dear. … Conversion comes at the cost of extermination of native people’s cultural diversity and way of living. Without preserving as they are, the existing religious traditions and the people that practised them, we cannot access these knowledge-bases that contain the lessons of harmonious co-existence. I would unhesitatingly call the Jewish, the Zoroastrian and the Hindu traditions as non-aggressive traditions for just this reason: they do not convert. Conversion UPROOTS individuals, devastates families, creates discord in communities and destroys ancient cultures. … Destruction of culture is destruction of religion. Destruction of religion is destruction of culture. If this destruction is not violence, what else is violence? Aggression need not be physical. It need not be the Kargil type. There are a varieties of aggression. You can either be emotionally, economically or verbally aggressive. But, the worst aggression, more than physical aggression, is cultural aggression or religious aggression. That is why we say ‘Conversion is Violence’. It is the deepest and most profound violence.”

I would like to end this story with a poem titled Pagan Questions by Padma Sundaram which poetically brings out the points of view of both Priyadarshan Pant and Swami Dayanand Saraswati.


Pagan Questions!!
India is no longer the PUNYA BHOOMI (Holy land)
          envisaged by our ancestors
It has become a NARAK BHOOMI (Land of Hell)
What with Quota Mad Politicians
And Quislings of pseudo-secularism
Islamic terrorists and
Christian Evangelists
Oh God we Hindus feel Hell is a better place
For in hell at least there is no Quota
For the ABC’s and EFG’s of Quota Raj
Or reserved treatment for Christians and Islamists


India is surrounded by vultures even before the people are dead
The vultures of Islam and hyenas of Evangelizing Christianity
Islam says convert or die, for Indiaslambad belongs to us
Evangelists tempt you with
Vanilla Ice-cream (Seventh Day Adventists!)
Chocolate Ice-cream (Catholics!)
Pista Ice-cream (Born-Again Christians!)
Cassata (Pentecostals!)
Tutti-frutti (Anglicans!)
For the Evangelists say
Why fall for Islam
When we have so many varieties to offer you!!
With Christian compassion and benediction


But when the Hindus cry out
We don’t want to convert, Leave us alone!!
The Soul-saving Evangelists say
But you cannot remain a black dirty heathenish pagan,
For when we offer you the chance to become
A black clean Baptist Christian
How can you ever say no!
To this offer of Christian heaven on earth
From a trans-national departmental store
For your total salvation


Terrorist Islam says
In terms Jihadic
You leave them to us
We know how to bring these infidels to heel
They are not fit to be offered ice-cream and such dishes delectable
They must know
It is Believe The Book or else it is sure death
Dear God, I as a devout pagan Hindu cry out
I have nothing to do with the Book
I know nothing about the Book
For God’s sake
Leave me alone in peace.


OM SHANTI! OM SHANTI! OM SHANTIHI!

Time-Serving Raucous Political Humbug Raol Vinci (alias alas Rahul Gandhi!)

V. SUNDARAM I.A.S

Supremely ignorant, defiantly stupid, treasonably pro-Islamic and anti-Hindu, the clownish “Crown Prince” of the Nehru-Gandhi Dynasty has the temerity to compare the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) with the banned Islamic terror outfit called Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI). This political scion of the Nehru-Gandhi Dynasty is taking the line of the known Islamic terrorists like Afzal Guru, Ajmal Kasab and Abdul Nasser Madhani in badmouthing the RSS.


Mother and Son – sworn enemies of Sanatana Dharma and Hindu people


As All India General Secretary of the Janata Party headed by Dr Subramanian Swamy, I have received complaints from many battered Hindus of Jammu and Kashmir to the effect that Rahul Gandhi uses his unbeatable and arrogant political clout with the Chairman of the UPA Co-ordination Committee to render active underground political and financial assistance to Islamic terrorist organizations like SIMI and similar outfits in J&K.



Bosom friends of Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi

While speaking in Bhopal on 6-October-2010, Rahul has said that he sees little difference between the RSS and the banned terrorist outfit Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI). When it was pointed out to him that the radical SIMI is a proscribed Islamic terrorist outfit, which is not the case with RSS, Rahul blabbered (like the blithering idiot that he is) that this vital difference did not matter much to him. Defiant ignorance on stilts indeed!

Rahul Gandhi has pompously declared that those responsible for the demolition of the disputed Babri structure in December 1992 should be severely punished. The real joke is that if he thinks that those who were responsible for the demolition of Babri Masjid should be punished, then Rajiv Gandhi, his father, must first be indicted posthumously!

Rahul Gandhi is totally ignorant of the even the recent political and cultural past of India. He is equally ignorant about the misdeeds of both his father and great-grand-father. HE IS NOT EVEN AWARE OF THE FACT THAT IT WAS HIS FATHER RAJIV GANDHI WHO AS PRIME MINISTER OF INDIA GOT THE LOCKS OF THE BABRI MASJID BROKEN AND HAD VOWED IN FRONT OF A LARGE HINDU AUDIENCE, TO RE-ESTABLISH RAM RAJYA!

Rahul Gandhi should also know that it was his grandmother, Indira Gandhi, let loose the terrorism of the State against the patriotic Sikhs of the Punjab by desecrating the most sacred Sikh shrine at Amritsar, called the Golden Temple.



Rahul Gandhi ought to know that his great-grand father, Pundit Jawaharlal Nehru after leading India to an ignominious military defeat in 1962 at the hands of Communist China, had personally invited the RSS to participate in the Republic Day Parade in January 1963. A CONTINGENT FROM THE RSS PARTICIPATED IN FULL SANGH UNIFORM IN THE REPUBLIC DAY PARADE (Please see the photograph above). In taking this bold political initiative, Jawaharlal Nehru had completely overruled the die-hard anti-Hindu and anti-RSS elements in his own party. Jawaharlal Nehru, the arch Muslim appeaser, had no doubts about the patriotic nature of the RSS. Jawaharlal Nehru needed the association with patriotic Hindu forces to shore up his dwindling public image. BUT THIS DUMBEST MEMBER OF THE NEHRU-GANDHI CLAN WITH HIS WEAK THAWING BRAIN, ADDLED BY COLUMBIAN CATHOLIC GIRL-FRIEND’S PERFUME, WILL NOT KNOW PATRIOTISM EVEN IF IT HITS HIM IN HIS FACE.

Rahul Gandhi had earlier said that the absence of anyone from Gandhi family in national politics resulted in the demolition of the Babri Masjid in Ayodhya.

Rahul Gandhi’s father, Rajiv Gandhi searched for desperate measures to win back the support of the Hindu majority prior to the Lok Sabha election in 1989. The former Member of Parliament from Nagpur, Banwarilal Purohit, had said in a press conference on 26 April 2007 that Rajiv had approached the then RSS chief Balasaheb Deoras through a messenger and asked for RSS support in elections. Rajiv decided to send former Union Minister Bhanu Prakash Singh as his emissary. Buta Singh was there to guide Bhanu Prakash Singh. RAJIV GANDHI HAD AGREED TO FACILITATE THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE RAM TEMPLE IN RETURN OF RSS SUPPORT IN ELECTION. Rajiv Gandhi government did not appeal to the high court against a district magistrate’s order to open the gates of the Babri Masjid compound for shilanyas. As agreed, Rajiv Gandhi allowed in 1989 the “Shilanyas” ceremony, in which the first stone of the planned temple was put in place and even got Buta Singh to participte in what was essentially a foundation-laying ceremony. Also, Rajiv Gandhi started his 1989 election campaign from Ayodhya, evoking Hindu religious sentiments. All these political events initiated by Rajiv Gandhi culminated in the raising of Hindu expectations of creating a grand temple for their beloved God Sri Ram at Ayodhya. Demolition of the disputed structure at Ram Janmabhoomi was the result of pro-Hindu actions by Rajiv Gandhi at the fag end of his life.

Banwarilal Purohit had said that he is revealing this aspect of Rajiv Gandhi’s Ayodhya Temple policy because Rahul does not know the facts of history. (Reference:http://www.indiadaily.org/entry/rajiv-gandhi-had-sought-rss-blessings-to-win-elections-former-congress-mp/)

Rahul Gandhi opens his mouth for only two reasons --- one, to eat Columbian food and two, to proclaim his ignorant views on vital national issues. Our gagged press (passionately wedded only to paid news) will view Rahul Gandhi‘s vicious anti-Hindu verbiage as national news of international significance and repeatedly broadcast it as breaking news from Kashmir to Kanyakumari and Rann of Kutch to Arunachal Pradesh!!!

Rahul Gandhi was ignorant of history in 2007 and he is ignorant of history today in 2010 and I am supremely confident that this bumptious blighter will continue to be equally ignorant in the years to come.

POST SCRIPT:

I am presenting below two articles titled ‘WHO IS THE ENEMY OF SANATANA DHARMA?’ and ‘‘COMPASSIONATE’ STUDENTS ISLAMIC MOVEMENT OF INDIA-[C(SIMI)]’ in three parts. These articles I had written two years ago in August 2008, and they are very relevant even today. Rahul’s mother Sonia Gandhi had written to President Abdul Kalam some years ago suggesting that there should be a ban on Government servants joining the RSS. At the same time, she felt comfortable with the proposal of the Muslim-appeasing Congress Party for the lifting of the ban on Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI). Both Sonia (Antonia Maino) and Rahul (Raol Vinci) are inveterate enemies of Sanatana Dharma and the peace-loving Hindus of India.

(I) WHO IS THE ENEMY OF SANATANA DHARMA?

V. SUNDARAM I.A.S

When Napoleon lay on his death bed, he said: 'May my son study history, for it is the only true philosophy.' History is indeed philosophy teaching by example, and also by warning; its four eyes are geography and chronology, culture and civilization.

The History of India constitutes the Philosophy of RSS said the Vedic seer Dr Hedgewar, the epoch-maker and founder of the RSS in 1925. He said 'This land is the mother and I am her son.' The Puranas say: 'That land is called Bharat that lies north of the seas and south of the snowy mountains and those are Bharatiyas who consider this land as their motherland and live in it as the sons of the soil.'

Whether Sonia Gandhi and her divided Congress party like it or not, the Hindu culture is the life-breath of Hindustan. It should therefore be clear that if Hindustan is to be protected, we should nourish the Hindu culture. If the Hindu culture perishes in Hindustan itself, and if the Hindu society ceases to exist, it would hardly be appropriate to refer to the merely inert geographical entity that would remain as Hindustan. Mere geographical lumps wedded to the perniciously divisive Congress/ Communist/ all other political parties' gimmick and shibboleth of paralyzing pseudo secularism will never make a nation. These were also the views of Anne Besant.

These sacred thoughts, passions and emotions are totally irrelevant to a Roman Catholic individual like Sonia Gandhi even as the lives and sayings of great Catholic Saints of Italy are not part of my inherited consciousness. Sonia Gandhi, rooted in her Roman Catholicism, would dismiss the following observations of Swami Vivekananda with contempt: 'True human feelings, passions and emotions are indeed the gastric juices of the soul'.

I am amused by Sonia Gandhi's infantile letter to President Abdul Kalam in which she has urged the President to reverse the Madhya Pradesh Government's decision to lift the ban on government employees for participating in RSS shakhas and its other activities.

As a petty politician steeped in self-chosen Himalayan pseudo-secular ignorance, she has described the decision as 'illegal' and a 'dangerous move'. She has described the RSS as a rightist organization with a long track record of 'stoking the religious prejudices, inflaming religious passions and polarizing the Indian society'. As President of the disgraceful Congress Party today, she has mislead the President by stating that the State Governor was kept completely in the dark by the State Government while it took this policy decision that has 'far reaching implications and repercussions. I am drawing this inference from the reported statement in the press of Madhya Pradesh Governor Balram Jakhar on 21 September, 2006 when he took a dig at imposition of ban on State government employees in participating in RSS activities and its subsequent withdrawal saying 'it resembled the game of kabaddi wherein one government imposes the ban and the other lifts it'.

Digvijay Singh (former Chief Minister of Congress) imposed the ban and Shivraj Singh Chouhan (current Chief Minister of BJP) lifted it. When another Chief Minister will take over charge, he will take his own decision'. He was dishing out these well-known and worn-out words of distilled Congress wisdom founded on hypocrisy and expediency at a meeting of Vice Chancellors where Congress Party politics was given precedence by the politically anti-Hindu Governor over crucial issues of higher education.

Raj Nath Singh, BJP President, has not let down the silent Hindus in numerical majority in India by giving a rejoinder to Sonia Gandhi: 'The Madhya Pradesh government has carried out this move after a careful thought. There can be a ban on government employees from becoming members of political parties but so far as RSS is concerned, it is the world's largest socio-cultural organisation and there should be no ban on participating in its activities'. These comments of Raj Nath Singh came in the wake of Sonia Gandhi's petition to Kalam seeking his intervention to restore the bar on the State government employees on participating in Sangh activities.

Sonia Gandhi and her degenerate Congress party have contempt for the following ruling given by the Supreme Court and all the High Courts in India on the nature, mission and ideology of the RSS in innumerable cases during the last sixty years: 'The RSS is a purely socio-cultural organization. It has never claimed to be political party and never declared by the government or any competent authority to be political party. Its constitution was submitted by Guruji Golwalkar, the second Sarsangchalak of the RSS to the Government of India (to Sardar Vallabai Patel!!) in 1949 which was duly accepted'. Sonia Gandhi, as a petty party politician interested only in the loaves and spoils of known and hidden power, is mischievously endeavouring to use the exalted office of the President of India to unsettle this settled fact with evangelical fervour duly backed by the Pope in Rome. We should not forget that when he came to India some years ago, in a shameless way he declared that Asia and more particularly India is going to be the golden land for maximising 'the rich harvest of faith'.

Whether Sonia Gandhi and her Congress Party like it or not, our Nation is celebrating the birth centenary of Sri Guruji Golwalkar on a grand scale in all parts of India. Thousands of Hindus in England, America, Europe, Africa, Australia and Asia are also celebrating this event to pay their tribute to a man of God who had no axe to grind, a man who in the pursuit of his timeless ideals had no languor in his heart, no weakness in his word and no weariness on his brow. He was clear and categorical in his declaration of India as a Hindu Nation. This will be clear from his inspiring exhortation in 1951: 'Today we find everywhere attempts to recast our life pattern in the mould of American, English or Russian way of life. How can we call it Swathantra (freedom) which has no Swa (our genius) in it? Then it is only Para-thantra. If Lenin is kept as the ideal, it becomes Lenin-thantra and not Swathantra. In fact, preservation and propagation of our national life-values i.e, our Dharma and Sanskriti, have always been held in our historical tradition as the raison d'etre of Swathantra'. Does not Sonia's letter to our President clearly bring out the fact that she is interested only in converting India into Sonia-thantra to serve the long range commercial interest of the Private Limited Company called the Congress Party today?

When the Chief Minister of the central provinces, E Gordon, issued an order on December 15, 1932 in which he said, 'the RSS in the opinion of the Government is undoubtedly of a communal nature and its participation in political movements is increasing, participation of the Government servants in such an organization is likely to become a hindrance to imperial discharge of their duties etc'.

Dr Hedgewar confronted him in these words: "I challenge you to prove it. Will you care to reply to these questions?In which political movement has the RSS taken part? Against which non-Hindu community has the Sagh taken up cudgels? If 'European Association', 'European Chamber of Commerce' and such other bodies are not 'communal', and if Government officers are allowed to participate in their activities, how could this organization established for organizing the Hindu society be viewed as 'communal'? And how could Government servants be prevented from participating in it? If any community acts against another, then its actions could be called 'communal'. But if there is an organization or a group of people who hate none and are interested in working for the welfare of their own society, how would it be justifiable to call it 'communal'?...May be the Government is worried about the activities of the RSS, and would like to suppress it. I SHOULD LIKE TO SUBMIT IN ALL HUMILITY, THAT IT WOULD NOT BE POSSIBLE FOR THE GOVERNMENT TO DO SO. We have undertaken this task trusting in God in utmost sincerity. What ever the obstacles in our way, we shall resolutely overcome them and achieve our goal".

E Gordon, is dead and forgotten and the RSS has grown from strength to strength, even making the BBC acknowledge the fact that the RSS is the largest Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) which is not Leftist. Following the lead of Dr.Hegdewar, I would like to ask Sonia Gandhi whether she would raise the same objections to the Muslim and Christian Government Servants being members of several Islamic and Church groups functioning as cultural organizations throughout the country.

Pope Benedict XVI, on 17 September, 2006, sought to extinguish days of anger and protest among Muslims by issuing an extraordinary personal apology for having caused offense with a speech last week that cited a reference to Islam as 'evil and inhuman.' By her continued recent political pronouncements in favour of only minorities at all costs to our sacred nation, Sonia Gandhi has clearly wounded the feelings, susceptibilities, hopes, urges and aspirations of the Hindus in numerical majority in India. On behalf of the Hindus of India, I would appeal to her to apologize to them in the same manner in which non-safforinized, non-communal, secular, cosmopolitan and international Pope Benedict XVI has apologized to the Muslims.

Mahatma Gandhi, Vinoba Bhave, Achyut Parwardan, Dr Zakir Hussyan, General Cariappa and Jayaprakash Narayan, who have served our nation with as much dedication as our global leader Sonia Gandhi, have paid their unreserved tributes to the RSS as a non-communal, non-political and patriotic organization. Sonia Gandhi can afford to ignore them only at her own peril and that of her Private Limited Company. Bharat Mata Ki Jai! Vande Mataram!

(II) ‘COMPASSIONATE’ STUDENTS ISLAMIC MOVEMENT OF INDIA [C(SIMI)]-1

V. SUNDARAM I.A.S

All the law abiding and innocent citizens of not only Ahmedabad but the whole of India have to offer their humble salutations to the Director General of Police Gujarat P C Pande, Police Commissioner (Baroda) Rakesh Asthana and Anti-Terrorist Squad Head Ashish Bhatia for having achieved a spectacular breakthrough in the Ahmedabad serial Bomb Blasts Case. On 26th July 2008, there were a series of bomb blasts in 14 places in Ahmedabad city and 55 people lost their lives. More than 150 people were grievously injured.


WRITING ON THE WALL FOR INDIA Painted invitations in Hindi and Urdu proclaiming ‘Join SIMI’ are a common
sight in Tilkhana in UP.

The Director General of Police Gujarat has clearly stated that the chief executioners of the blast, the INDIAN MUJAHIDEEN, are a branch of the banned STUDENTS ISLAMIC MOVEMENT OF INDIA (SIMI). SIMI has been the chief architect of Islamic Compassion (Terrorism!) in India during the last 31 years. The Gujarat Police, acting in close collaboration with UP Police in a joint operation in Lucknow, have arrested the mastermind of the bomb blasts, a Mufti, Abu Basheer. He was arrested from the Naka Police Circle in Lucknow on 16-8-2008. Earlier this Islamic terrorist was picked up from his home in Sarai Meer in Azamgarh District on Independence Day eve and was brought to Lucknow on the same day for sustained interrogation. There is no doubt whatsoever that the arrest of this gang leader will help the Police to track down the Islamic terrorists who were responsible for the bomb blasts in Jaipur, Bangalore and Hyderabad. SIMI has been behind all these blasts. What is shocking to note is that the government of India—I mean our directionless Prime Minister and our spineless Union Home Minister—on account of their boundless love for Islam and Indian Muslims, mainly arising from an unnatural and impolitic policy based on minority vote bank politics — have been consistently taking the stand during the last 4 years that only FOREIGN TERRORIST ELEMENTS BELONGING TO PAKISTAN (ISI) AND BANGLADESH HAVE BEEN CONTINUOUSLY RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL BOMB BLASTS IN INDIA. However our tottering National (IN!) SECURITY Advisor recently came out with a ‘great’ statement to the effect that more than 800 Islamic Terror Cells have been identified during the last four years! He made this statement not in New Delhi but in Kualalampur in Malaysia in an interview to Singapore’s Straits Times! While this identification process of Terror and Error and Error and Terror has been going on with pseudo-secular and Islam-embracing steadiness and commitment, the Islamic terrorists belonging to SIMI have been active in India playing the ‘Jihad’ game of bomb blasts in temples, trains, public places like markets, busy thoroughfares in many major cities and towns of India. All the so-called vital files and records and information relating to the 800 Terror Cells (Outfits) were lodged in the gigantic incubator of the Union Home Ministry and our inept Union Home Minister would be proud to announce that the minimum period of incubation for even closing such records with pseudo-secular fervor would vary from 4 years to at least two generations. The same principle is being applied with Islamic commitment by the UPA government to the case of Afzal Guru. The union government under the stranglehold of our de facto Prime Minister Sonia Gandhi (No.10, Janpath = Rashtrapathi Bhavan + No.7, Race Course Road to be more precise!!) would on the one hand, treat the death sentences awarded to Islamic terrorists by the Supreme Court of India with supreme content, and the Islamic terrorists, duly convicted by the Supreme Court of India, with pseudo-secular consideration bordering on veneration, on the other.

The path-breaking investigation done by Gujarat Police has revealed the following facts:

A. Indian Mujahideen (a breakaway branch of SIMI) has been fully behind the recent bomb blasts in Ahmedabad. They are all Indian Muslims.


B. There is an Inter-State Islamic terrorist network functioning in an organised manner in India, funded by terrorist groups/organizations in Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Saudi Arabia etc. which is capable of motivating 20-25 year old boys to turn against the nation.

C. The jungles of Kerala and Gujarat have been used by the Indian Mujahideen to conduct training camps for young Indian Muslims to plant bombs in temples, trains, public buses and in the busy commercial areas of big cities and towns.

FRIENDS OF SIMI

D. The gang leader Mufti Abu Basheer has been arrested. One of his Muslim accomplices, an employee of Information Technology firm WIPRO, who also masterminded the blasts, is reported to be absconding. So far nine people have been arrested in Gujarat. Some of them have taken training in handling arms in jungles near Ernakulam, Kerala. According to P C Pande, the Director General of Police, Gujarat, all of them have some connection with the Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI). They also seem to have an active connection with the Lashkar-e-Tayiba.

E.The network of Islamic terrorists, who are planting bombs and taking innocent lives with such regularity and ease within India, is not just restricted to few states. The Terrorist Arms Training Camp, which took place in Kerala in December 2007, had Muslim youths from Gujarat, Maharashtra, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh and Jharkhand, apart from Kerala.

F. Besides the use of lethal weapons against the innocent masses, these Islamic Terrorists are also taught how to escape on motorcycle, how to use human rights institutions if and when they are arrested and how to face police investigations. All of them are trained to give fake names in a professional manner so that even if they get arrested, police would never be able to trace their accomplices. Safdar Nagori who was the Secretary General of SIMI till it was proscribed under the Prevention of Terrorism Act (POTA), 2002 and who later absconded and was declared a Proclaimed Offender, is reported to have given lectures in December 2007 at the All India Terrorists Training Camp in Kerala.

G. According to the Director General of Police, Gujarat, SIMI has been divided into two. The Indian Mujahideen is the new identity of SIMI. The hardliner section led by Safdar Nagori was instrumental in planning and executing the blasts in Ahmedabad. The WIPRO employee is reported to be absconding. Mufti Abu Basheer is reported to have visited Ahmedabad several times to motivate the concerned terrorists who were deployed specifically for carrying out the bomb blasts in Gujarat.

H. Some of the bombs that were planted in Ahmedabad and Surat were prepared in Baroda with help of Imran Sheikh, who has been arrested. The entire operation was coordinated by Sajid Mansoori of Surat. Thus the police have been able to establish the entire chain of events. The bombs were made in Baroda; two terrorists — Iqbal and Sajid — were the executors of bomb-making plans. According to the police, the explosives (Ammonium Nitrate) came from Madhya Pradesh where two training camps were organized, and where Nagori and Mufti Bashir gave fiery anti-India lectures, spreading the anti-kafir venom among Muslim youth.

Against the above factual background, the battered and shattered Hindus of India were really shocked when the Delhi High Court Tribunal chaired by Honourable Justice Geeta Mittal, revoked the Government ban on the malevolent and seditious association called Students’ Islamic Movement of India (SIMI), thereby letting loose the SIMI terrorists. The Judge in her order has attributed the lifting of the ban to insufficient material provided by the Union Home Ministry and its failure to provide clinching evidence against the SIMI. Fortunately for the innocent and peace-loving Hindus of India, the Honourable Supreme Court has stayed the Tribunal Order for the time being. This callous non-performance of the Union Home Ministry, under a more callous and carelessly casual and Sonia-servile Union Home (less!) Minister is yet another glaring proof of the UPA Government’s footless appeasement policy, secularly reserved for the Muslims of all sorts.

Islam-embracing and Hindu-hating leaders like Mulayam Singh Yadav and Lalu Prasad Yadav have reacted in the most reprehensible manner by welcoming the lifting of the ban on SIMI. As usual, the double dealing layer-upon-layer dying Congress Party has also welcomed this anti-national view of the Samajwadi Party (SP) and the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD). The true political scoundrelism of Mulayam Singh Yadav and Lalu Yadav has come to full public view with their savagely barbarous demand for imposing a ban on the RSS and Shiv Sena. Another anti-Hindu Union Minister of State called Shakeel Ahmed (whose national identity is perhaps better known in the Middle-East than in India!) has also observed: ‘The RSS has been banned three times in the past and I do not think the demand to ban it again is unjustified’. If he can say this, I would like to say that all the Swayamsevaks of the RSS should move a public interest petition in the Supreme Court, for prosecuting this disgraceful Union Minister for his antinational activities bordering on treason. I have no doubt that the Hindus of India will be dealing a suitable political deathblow to this unholy trio and the anti-Hindu Parties to which they belong, in the Parliamentary Elections to be held in 2009.

In his lifetime, Pandit Madan Mohan Malaviaji had said that it was secular policies that let to the massive killings of Hindus by Muslims at Noakhali and elsewhere. This misconceived defeatist policy in place of uncompromising nationalism ultimately brought about the great tragedy of partition of the country on August 15, 1947. We cannot afford another Partition of the Country. The hundred (100) crore Hindus want to live with honour in the country of their birth. Most stringent anti-terror measures will have to be taken to save the Hindus in this country.



III ‘COMPASSIONATE’ STUDENTS ISLAMIC MOVEMENT OF INDIA [C(SIMI)]-2

V. SUNDARAM I.A.S

In part 1 of this article, I had paid tribute on behalf of the law abiding citizens of India, to P C Pande, the Director General of Police Gujarat, Rakesh Asthana, Commissioner of Police (Baroda) and Asish Bhatia, Chief of Anti-Terrorist Squad, Gujarat for having taken

‘Zero Tolerance’ towards Terrorism

lightning action to apprehend the SIMI terrorists who were responsible for a series of bomb blasts in 14 places in Ahmedabad on the 26th of July 2008 in which 55 people were killed and more than 150 people were grievously injured. These officers have been able to do their professional work without any fear or favour only because we have an effective and patriotic Chief Minister in the person of Narendra Modi in Gujarat.

When the Prime Minister visited Ahmedabad soon after the SIMI bomb blasts in the last week of July 2008, Narendra Modi gave a historic Memorandum to the Prime Minister for immediate follow-up action by the Government of India. In this Memorandum, Shri Modi said that the country couldn’t be a mute spectator to irresponsible and inhuman acts of the terrorists and their organisational and logistical capacities to execute such acts without any fear of deterrent action by the government.

While referring to the recent incident of serial bomb blasts at Ahmedabad Modi told the Prime Minister that this is not a terrorist act to be viewed in isolation. The terrorist activities have been increasing and spreading across the country. Ahmedabad’s incident is just an extension, just another target and a part of the larger design of the terrorists to infiltrate the country, to destabilise it and to demoralise the people. Narendra Modi further said that it should not be difficult to recollect similar recent incidents at Bangalore and Jaipur. He also added that the mastermind of the terrorist activities is not within the boundaries of a particular State, nor within our country. Therefore, it is for the government of India to take up the responsibility to unearth it and to combat it ruthlessly, for establishing the rule of law and proclaiming the overriding majesty of law. Otherwise, such incidents will keep on happening in different parts of the country.

It is understood that Narendra Modi gave this pointed message to the Prime Minister in person: ‘The recent bomb blasts at Ahmedabad and simultaneous detection of live bombs and explosive materials at Surat show that the challenge is big and it is more real and critical than government of India thinks. The government and the people of Gujarat are firm and committed to handle this challenge with a strong hand. We believe in ‘Zero Tolerance’ towards terrorism. We, however, request the Prime Minister to see that government of India provides requisite and effective leadership in this fight against Islamic Terrorism. We are of the view that if the union government still fails to comprehend the seriousness of the challenge of terrorism, the nation will have to pay a very heavy price. We request the Prime Minister for strengthening the security and intelligence network across the country’.

Emphasizing the fact that the security concerns of Gujarat State were being either ignored or neglected by the Centre, Narendra Modi wanted Prime Minister’s resolved initiative in strengthening the security environment in the country including the States. Against this background, Modi in his Memorandum to the Prime Minister, drew his attention to the following important issues:

1. The Central Intelligence agencies should not behave in a casual and routine manner that too in a reactive manner. Getting inputs and just passing on to the states will not serve the purpose. There has to be pro-active, sincere, organised, and continuous efforts to unearth the terrorist activities, networks and their designs.

2. There has to be a national consensus for zero-tolerance against terrorism and necessary political and administrative will has to be mustered to bring this spirit into action.

3. We need to strengthen the legal provisions to fight terrorism. The POTA act has been repealed without any adequate alternative provisions to deal with terrorist acts and threats. Therefore, on the one hand, the states have been rendered helpless without any effective legal mechanism to deal with terrorism and on the other; different states have been dealing similar terrorist acts differently.

4. Gujarat had legislated the Gujarat Control of Organized Crime (GUJCOC) bill and had submitted to Government of India for Presidential assent which is pending since June 2004. In absence of a central Act, Gujarat is left with no option but to implement the GUJCOC. The State of Rajasthan has also made similar provisions but the same is also pending for Presidential assent. The Presidential assent should be given forthwith to these legislations. In absence of this, serious incidents of terrorism will have to be tried under ordinary laws, which are meant for normal situations.

5. There is a need for modernisation of the police force and intelligence machinery. The states have to be particularly assisted adequately by the government of India if the terrorist acts are treated as national concern. In case of Gujarat, unfortunately, the grants in this regard have been reduced in spite of State’s good performance in physical and financial terms and in spite of Gujarat being a sensitive border state.

6. Gujarat’s requests for strengthening of the coastal security have not been taken seriously. The State has been repeatedly representing to strengthen the chain of Police Stations and to provide boats for effective surveillance of the coastal security. Similar is the fate of Border Fencing, which is being done in a casual manner.

7. Government of India should create an All India Intelligence Service just like IAS and IPS so that professionalism is inducted into the intelligence wing, which will help the country on a long-term basis.

Summing up, Narendra Modi informed the Prime Minister that he has been constantly drawing the attention of the government of India to these issues through personal letters and in the national conferences. He emphasized that he had already said all this after the Jaipur and Bangalore bomb blasts and that he was just reiterating the same points after the Ahmedabad bomb blasts once again.

Let me quote the words of Narendra Modi spoken to the Prime Minister in person in Ahmedabad: ‘I am anguished to note that the government of India has not given any serious thought to any of my suggestions. Let not another city be added in the list of terrorist attacks. Let not more people lose their lives and limbs. We have no time to lose and we have to act and the union government must be visibly seen leading from the front. I am willing to offer my services, both on a personal level and in my official capacity as Chief Minister, for conceiving and formulating any suitable and effective strategies to fight terrorism’.

The UPA Sonia-Congress government in New Delhi has been working whole time against the people of Gujarat in general and Narendra Modi in particular. On the one hand, this sworn ‘secular’ Central government, has been treating the Islamic terrorists in India (specially in Jammu and Kashmir!) and the Muslim infiltrators from Bangladesh (IMDT Act Muslim Citizens of Assam and West Bengal) as ‘First Class’ citizens and on the other, has been viewing the people of Gujarat (more particularly the Hindus!) with Sonia-suspicion (?!) as enemies of India during the last four years. We are led to this conclusion because the government of India (more interested in having peace process talks with Terrorist Regimes in Pakistan and Bangladesh!), have not taken any action to get the Gujarat Control of Organised Crime (GUJCOC) bill submitted by the government of Gujarat for Presidential assent in June 2004, cleared till date. Likewise, the government of Rajasthan had also sent a similar bill for Presidential assent to the government of India and it is awaiting clearance till date. The UPA government is functioning as a ‘petty small arm’ (a mini regional unit!) of the Sonia-Congress Party operating from No.10 Janpath in New Delhi – a formidable building (like Kremlin in Stalin’s time!), which combines within itself the sovereign power of the Indian State residing in Rashtrapathi Bhavan and the Executive Power of the Indian State residing in No.7, Race Course Road in New Delhi. The public perception is that such bills forwarded by the government of Gujarat and government of Rajasthan for dealing with terrorism have not been cleared by government of India because they are all being ruled by the patriotic BJP Party and not Terrorist Islam-embracing Congress Party. This point becomes even sharper when we consider the fact that a similar bill sent by government of Maharashtra was cleared by the government of India. I am referring to Maharashtra Control of Organized Crime Act, 1999.

The Gujarat Police under the dynamic leadership of Narendra Modi has established the fact that Indian Mujahideen, a runaway branch of SIMI, has been responsible for the blasts in Ahmedabad and Surat in Gujarat. Within two days after the bomb blasts in Ahmedabad and Surat, Narendra Modi had made this very point in a very clear and succinct manner in his detailed Memorandum personally presented to the Prime Minister in Ahmedabad, which I have referred to above.

Ashok Singal, VHP President, has rightly summed up in his recent letter to the Union Home Minister: ‘Their (SIMI) aim has been to demoralise the Hindus by mass killings and selective annihilation of our intellectuals, technocrats, most revered Mahatmas and Saints, industry owners, bureaucrats and also the politicians. We can see this written on the wall. Everybody in the country knows about the connection of SIMI with the Inter Services Intelligence (ISI) of Pakistan. The situation is dangerous. I appeal to you to re-examine our secular ideals that have been leading to self-annihilation and national shame. Jammu is a reaction to the events that have been happening in this country for the last 70 years. In this hour of crisis, we need all patriots to act together, rising above party politics, to protect the honour of Hindus and their only homeland Bharat’.

THE HISTORY AND GROWTH OF SIMI IN INDIA EVER SINCE ITS ESTABLISHMENT AT ALIGARH IN UP ON APRIL 25, 1977 READS LIKE AN AGATHE CHRISTIE CRIME THRILLER.

(To be contd...)





IV `Compassionate' Students Islamic Movement of India [C(simi)]-3

V. SUNDARAM I.A.S

We have an Islam (Secular Terrorism!) promoting UPA government in New Delhi, which abolished the POTA soon after coming to power in May 2004. We have Union Minister of Railways called Lalu Yadav and we have an ex-Defence Minister of India called Mulayam Singh Yadav who was democratically thrown out by the people of U.P. following the Assembly Elections in 2007. Both these Islam-embracing worthies heartily welcomed the recent removal of ban on SIMI by a Delhi High Court Tribunal. Both these Yadavs have been turning a blind eye to Islamic Secular Terrorism for the last several years. Lalu Yadav using his clout as Railway Minister appointed the disgraceful Justice Banerjee Commission to enquire into the Godhra carnage in 2004, just in order to get a doctored document against Narendra Modi. Justice Banerjee obliged him in a fitting manner by producing a fraudulently fictitious `Political' report. Unfortunately Lalu could not file this report in Parliament, because the Gujarat High Court passed orders to the effect that Justice Banerjee's report cannot be tabled in Parliament. Lalu had hoped that this report would help him to win the Muslim votes in Bihar in the Assembly Elections. Mercifully the people of Bihar threw him out.

Likewise Mulayam Singh Yadav has also been a champion of `Secular' Islamic terrorism for the last several years. In these columns on 20th October 2006, I had elaborated on Chief Minister Mulayam Singh Yadav's infatuation for Islam in an article titled `A Menacing Neo-Jinnah (Quaid-e-Azam) in UP'. As Chief Minister of U.P., on October 14, 2006, he had opened the doors of Hardwar to Islamic festivities by organising a State-sponsored Islamic programme on the banks of the River Ganga for the Muslim voters of U.P. Taking due note of this fact, I had commented as follows: `Like Mohammed of Ghazni in the 11th century, Mohammed Ghori in 12th century, Qutubuddin Aibek, Iltutmash, Balban in the 13th century, Allauddin Khilji, Mohammed Bin Thuglak and Timoor in the 14th century, Babur in the 16th century, Aurangazeb in the 17th century, Nadir Shah and Ahmed Shah Abdali in the 18th century, invading the sacred territory of Bharat, Mulayam Singh Yadav has culturally invaded the ancient, sacred and holy city of Hardwar by organising a State-sponsored programme for his favorite Muslim voters'. Can we expect the King of Saudi Arabia to open the doors of Mecca to the Hindus of India on Deepavali Day?

Ever since the UPA government under our effete Prime Minister assumed office in 2004, the menace of organised Islamic terrorist crimes has been on the increase. Ever since the POTA was revoked in 2004, there has been no effective law in the country to effectively control the organised crimes. All our major cities have become targeted centres of Islamic terrorists who hoard money through illegal means. Islamic Terrorism knows no national boundaries and is fueled by illegal wealth generated by contract killing, extortion, smuggling in contrabands, illegal trade in narcotics, kidnappings for ransom, collection of protection money and money laundering, etc. It is now known to all the law enforcement agencies that the organised Islamic Terrorists (like those in SIMI) have been making extensive use of wire and oral communications in their criminal activities. The interception of such communications to obtain evidence of the commission of crimes or to prevent their commission would be an indispensable aid to law enforcement and the administration of justice. The existing legal framework i. e. the penal and procedural laws and the adjudicatory system were found to be rather inadequate to curb or control the menace of organised crime. All these aspects have been brilliantly explained in the great Memorandum that was submitted by Narendra Modi to our Prime Minister in the last week of July at

Ahmedabad. SIMI, an organisation praised by Lalu Yadav and Mulayam Yadav, has been behind most incidents relating to bomb blasts in India during the last several years.

The Students' Islamic Movement of India (SIMI), proscribed under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, 1967, is an Islamist Fundamentalist Organisation, which advocates the `liberation of India' by converting it into an Islamic land. The SIMI, an organisation of extremist Muslim students, has declared Jihad against India, the aim of which is to establish Dar-ul-Islam (Land of Islam) by either forcefully converting everyone to Islam or by organised violence. This anti-national organisation was formed at Aligarh in the State of Uttar Pradesh on April 25, 1977. Mohammed Ahmaddullah Siddiqi, Professor of Journalism and Public Relations at the Western Illinois University Macomb, Illinois was the founding President of SIMI. Originally, to begin with, SIMI emerged as an offshoot of the Jamaat-e-Islami Hind. The paramount driving force of SIMI's Islamic Confrontationism today is derived from its desire for overriding Islamic dominance in India. SIMI openly declares in its Mission Statement `Allah is our God, the Prophet is our leader, Quran is our Constitution, Jehad is our path, and Martyrdom is our dream'.

SIMI's main aim is to utilise the Muslim youth in the propagation of Islam and also to mobilise support for JIHAD in order to establish a Shariat-based Islamic Rule through `Islami Inqulab'. As SIMI does not believe in a Nation-State, it does not believe in the Indian Constitution or the Secular Order. SIMI also regards idol worship as a sin and considers it to be a holy Islamic Duty to terminate and eradicate idol worship.

Ideologically, SIMI is against Hinduism, western beliefs and idols, as well as other `non-Islamic Cultures'. Parallel to its rejection of secularism, democracy and nationalism runs SIMI's ideology and objective of restoration of the `khilafat', emphasis on `Ummah' (Muslim brotherhood), and the need for a Jihad to establish the supremacy of Islam. SIMI's interpretation of Islam is influenced to a great extent by the writings of Syed Abul A'alla Maududi, founder of the Jamaat-e-Islami. SIMI views nationalism as a false idol, and one devised by the non-Muslim `enemies of the faith' to divide the Muslims and thereby weaken them. All non-Muslims are branded by the SIMI as `kafirs'.

Dr. Shahid Badar Falah and Safdar Nagori functioned as the National President of SIMI and Secretary-General of SIMI till it was proscribed under the Prevention of Terrorism Act, 2002. A Delhi Police arrested Dr. Shahid Falah on September 28, 2001 in Delhi and he was subsequently charged with sedition and inciting communal disharmony in the State of Uttar Pradesh. Safdar Nagori was named in a First Information Report (FIR) under Section 3 of the Unlawful Activities Act, and registered at the New Friends Colony Police Station in South Delhi. Soon thereafter he was declared a Proclaimed Offender in the case. He has been absconding since September 27, 2001. According to the Police in several States, he is alleged to have established close links with the operatives of Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), external intelligence agency of Pakistan, and other Islamists Fundamentalist Leaders in a bid to revive SIMI cadres under the umbrella of a different outfit. Mohammed Aamir, the chief of SIMI's outfit in UP State and the prime accused in the Kanpur Riots of March 16, 2006, surrendered before a metropolitan magistrate on April 25, 2006.

The SIMI has close links with the Jamaat-e-Islam (JEL) units in Pakistan, Bangladesh and Nepal. It also has a close working relationship with the Islami Chhatra Shibir (ICS), the students wing of the JEL in Bangladesh. The SIMI is alleged to have close links with the Hizb-Ul-Mujahideen (HM), and the ISI. Many SIMI leaders are reported to be having close links with the Pakistan-based terrorist groups such as the Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) and Jaish-e-Mohammed. SIMI activists, over the years, have also become a vital part of the LeT's grand plans for destabilisation in India. SIMI also maintains close ties with the Harkat-ul-Jehad-al Islami Bangladesh (HuJI-B).

During the last five years, SIMI is reported to be involved in a continuous recruitment drive for the HuJI-B in several areas of U.P. like Jaunpur, Allahabad, Kanpur, Lucknow, Aligarh, Azamgarh, Sonauli, Ferozabad and Hatras. Ardent Groups of SIMI sympathisers are reported to be operating in several places in the Gulf States. In Saudi Arabia, we have an organisation called Jamayyatul Ansar, consisting of SIMI activists who are expatriate Indian Muslims. Several Islamic Fundamentalist Organisations are allegedly controlled by former SIMI cadres. Prominent among them are the Kerala-based National Democratic Front (NDF) and Islamic Youth Centre (IYC), and the Tamil Nadu Muslim Munnetra Kazhagam (TMMK) in Tamilnadu.

In Western Maharashtra, areas such as Aurangabad, Malegaon, Jalagaon and Thane are the strongholds of the SIMI. There are more than 3000 Madrasaas in the State, with about 200,000 students. There are more than 500 Seminaries in the State Capital of Mumbai.

SIMI's activities are State patronised political activities in Assam and West Bengal. In Madhya Pradesh, SIMI activities go on in full swing in Indore, Ujjain, Khandwa and Bhopal. SIMI publishes several magazines/papers in various languages, including Vivekam in Malayalam, Seythi Madal in Tamil, Rupantar in Bengali, Iqraa in Gujarati, Tahreek in Hindi, Al Harkah in Urdu and Shaheem Times.

It is against this background that the recent historic letter of Ashok Singhal, President VHP to the Union Home Minister assumes a great national significance. In this context, I would conclude in his own words:

`As requested by us on 3 August 2008, please also impose a ban on the rallies of the fifth columnist anti-national movement named `POPULAR FRONT OF INDIA (PFI)' that consists of several Muslim youth outfits, e.g., the National Democratic Front (NDF) based at Kochi, Karnataka Forum for Dignity, Tamil Nadu Muslim Munnetra Kazhagam (TMMK), Manitha Needhi Pasarai (Tamil Nadu), etc. The PFI conducts its exercises geared virtually in Pakistani military uniform. Even the SIMI in disguise is participating in these rallies. The PFI could be active in other States as well. Some of the leaders of these outfits have criminal records and the rallies at all these places have a hidden agenda. The main guiding and driving force behind the said front outfits and rallies is the Inter Services Intelligence (ISI) of Pakistan'.

(Concluded)
