Hindu dharma is implicitly at odds with monotheistic intolerance. What is happening in India is a new historical awakening... Indian intellectuals, who want to be secure in their liberal beliefs, may not understand what is going on. But every other Indian knows precisely what is happening: deep down he knows that a larger response is emerging even if at times this response appears in his eyes to be threatening.

NCERT is hostage to an academic mafia

The muck in the textbooks
NCERT is hostage to an academic mafia
By Sudarshan Kumar Kapur

The UPA has succeeded in persuading more state governments to accept the NCERT texts. A report on Monday (January 5, 2009) said 12 more state governments have accepted to teach NCERT texts in their schools.

For the last six weeks the Organiser is carrying a series of articles on the NCERT textbooks prescribed for students at the primary, secondary and higher secondary schools. We have found these books written with a peculiar mindset, to denationalise and deculturise the young Indian. These books fail to make the children aware of their true heritage. These books seem to distort even India’s freedom struggle, Mahatma Gandhi’s role and try to divide the society into different caste and class segments. Their idea is to convince the children that India as a nation came to exist only after August 15, 1947.

We request the parents, teachers, students and scholars to join this academic exercise to expose the shenanigans behind promotion of these books in Indian schools. —Editor

We must concede that even the most machiavellian tricksters and pranksters cannot match the ingenuity and sophistry of the Communist comrades in the art of inventing invectives and contriving innuendoes for those who do not agree with their views or political pretensions. Inured and brainwashed by alien dogmas and dialectical materialism propounded by Karl Marx, they have lost all sense of shame, sincerity and morality and have consequently turned opportunists and exploiters of highest degree.

Under the spell of the ghost of Marxism, they have developed over the years a feeling of extreme repugnance for the doctrines of nationalism and patriotism and denounce and deride whatever is national or Indian—Indian history, Indian culture, Indian ethos, Indian values, Indian languages, Indian religions, national heroes and patriots. Ironically, it goes to the credit of Communist comrades and their leaders to have substantially contributed to the evolution of a large vocabulary of political jargon they use to denunciate their opponents. The vocabulary expressed for their antagonists includes epithets like bourgeois, anti-proletariat, imperialist, fascist, communalist, revisionist, responsivist, anti-secular though they themselves, without any exception, possess all these traits in good measure and can be called and named as such. They are the hypocrites of the highest order playing dirty politics in the country today. The truth is that they have not only been betraying the national interest since 1942 but have always exploited the gullible Indian workers and toiling masses and brazenly betrayed them. The brutal killings of RSS workers in Kannur district (Kerala) by Marxist cadres and Nandigram are the latest example of their brazen cruelness and totalitarian rule.

It is a well-known fact that during the period of 1940s, most of the Indian communists believed in pan-communism rather than Indian nationalism. They worked as agent-saboteurs of Russia and torpedoed the struggle for freedom of the country and betrayed their countrymen. After Independence also, they pursued the same avocation and were staunch henchmen of Soviet communism and therefore they always ignored national interests. Instead they have been serving till todate the interests of their Soviet and Chinese masters, at the cost of national interests. The greatest failure of Nehru has been that he had not an intrinsic ability and sense to evolve a truly national and Indian mode of administration which behoved an independent country i.e. India. Rather, he was swayed by the Soviet model of administration, planning and development which advocated concentration of all power and decision making in the hands of few at the top, and all his liberal western education and upbringing was of no avail and failed him. The commies took full advantage of Nehru’s failure on this account and his other great weakness was his familiar and political ambition to prop Indira Gandhi as heir apparent.

Indira Gandhi’s political vulnerability and her autocratic and dictatorial bent of mind coupled with her lust for power and ambition for imposing dynastic hegemony over the country gave these commies god-spent opportunity to exploit the situation as it obtained then. They flocked around Indira Gandhi and her pygmies in her support to promote the interests of Indira Gandhi’s Congress party and under this guise started serving their selfish interests and looting the public exchequer—all this in the name of ameliorating the lot of the common people and the proletariat, as they are presently doing and blackmailing the Congress, thanks to pitiful political vulnerability of its topmost foreign-born leader. During last four decades or so, they must have set up several frontal non-governmental organisations professedly to help the poor, down-trodden, organised and unorganised urban and rural workers, both men and women and other classes of the proletariat and must have got built huge building and ivory towers at prime locations in metropolises, state capitals and other big and small cities of the country pretendedly from meagre and hard earned subscriptions of Indian workers but mainly funds received from foreign agencies like KGB and grants received from Indian government or by other fair or foul means. The net result is that these communist comrades, the so-called messiahs of the poor and the downtrodden, hold, manage or control properties worth hundred of crores of rupees. Personally, they lead a luxurious life, live in palatial bungalows, travel in air-conditioned cars and aeroplanes, get them medically treated in the elite hospitals. In communist jargon, they are the capitalists in real terms. Such leaders can be truly called parasites as they survive, live and thrive on the poverty of the common people and workers. Their common minimum programmes are a hoax and a fraud on common people and the starving millions. It is a cruel and insensitive joke. It is a treacherous device to hoodwink and blackmail the masses.

Coming again to the anti-national and unpatriotic nexus between the Congress party and the communist parties since the days of Indira Gandhi’s regime, the wily commies took full advantage of the fragile position of Indira Gandhi and planted and installed their own men, bed fellows and lackeys in almost all fields, especially in academic field and media. Through Nurul Hassan, the then Central Education Minister, they got their own men appointed in important positions in universities, colleges and apex institutions like UGC, NCERT, ICHR, ICSSR, JNU, ASI, etc. In fact, Nurul Hassan was the founder-father of the School of Distortion of Indian history and so-called historians of today’s secular brand were his footmen and orderlies. They, also, got their minions and leftists installed in highly circulated English newspapers and TV channels including Akashvani and Doordarshan. These appointees, who were otherwise persons of mediocre intelligence and calibre, masqueraded as eminent intellectuals, historians, thinkers, literary critics, educationists, academics etc and are often invited by TV channels as panelists to harp on their communal brand of secularism. These lackey were required to discharge some specific tasks in the manner that could serve the political interest of their masters. Take for example, the case of history textbooks writers. The chief task required to be performed by these writers was to glorify the Muslim invaders and rulers and also the Nehru dynasty, namely Moti Lal Nehru and Jawaharlal Nehru and denigrate and deride those national heroes and patriots, who fought against the foreign rulers or opposed them, in the books written by them.

Two examples from NCERT school texts would suffice to show how brazenly and impudently these demagogues and high priests of secularism, born out of the unholy wedlock of emergencists and communists, have distorted Indian history and denigrated the national heroes of our freedom movement.

About Lala Lajpat Rai who was a pioneer of All India Trade Union Congress and presided its first session in 1920 and was the Congress president in 1923, known as Sher-e-Punjab, Bipin Chandra of JNU writes in Modern India (A history textbook for class XII, pages 236, 237)— “….The result was that the growing feeling that all people were Indians first received a set back. Even the Swarajist Party, whose main leaders Moti Lal Nehru and C R Das, were staunch nationalists, was split by communalism. A group known as Responsivists including Madan Mohan Malviya, Lala Lajpat Rai and N C Kelkar, offered cooperation to the government so that the so-called Hindu interests might be safeguarded. They accused Moti Lal Nehru of letting down Hindus, of being anti-Hindu, of favouring cow-slaughter, and of eating beef. The Muslim communalists were no less active in fighting for the loaves and fishes of office.”

About Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, Bipin Chandra writes in the same text(page 266)— “With the collapse of Japan in the war during 1944-45, the INA too met defeat and Subhas Bose was killed in an aeroplane accident on his way to Tokyo. Even though his strategy of winning freedom in cooperation with the fascist powers was criticised at the time by most Indian nationalists, by organising INA he set an inspiring example of patriotism before the Indian people and Indian army.”

Now what impressions can the students get from the above texts. Let us summarise them.

1. Moti Lal Nehru and C R Das were staunch nationalists.
2. Madan Mohan Malviya, Lala Lajpat Rai and NC Kelkar were communalists.
3. Raising voice against cow-slaughter and beef-eating was communal and the nationalists like Moti Lal Nehru and C R Das were anti-Hindus, favoured cow-slaughter and beef-eating.
4. Malviya, Lajpat Rai and Kelkar were fighting for the loaves and fishes of office.
5. Netaji Subhas Bose cooperated with the fascist powers and was their friend/ stooge.
6. Indian nationalists were critical of his role.
7. He was more patriot rather than a nationalist. Nationalism is different from patriotism.

This is how these secularists have brain washed the whole generation of people and Indian students during last three decades or so. Any reform in the curriculum or the system would shatter their citadel and vested interests they have developed during these years at the cost of national interests.
