Does “saffron terror” exist?

Also Read

The term ‘saffron terror’ or commonly known as “BHAGWA AATANKWAD” came into existence the day Gandhi was assassinated, in 1948 by Nathuram Godse. Since then RSS has been targeted to be considered as an immoral organisation. Truth to be told, that is Nathuram Godse formed his own organisation named “HINDU RASHTRA DAL” whilst being an active member of both the RSS and the Hindu Mahasabha. The historians who have twisted 5000 years of Indian history, who have given a partial view about various incidents will never acknowledge this fact. Nathuram Godse was hanged within months. Blaming RSS for Gandhi’s murder is like blaming INC [Indian National Congress] for the mass murder that took place during the partition. Just because Jinnah was a member of INC between 1906 and 1926.

When a national emergency was imposed in our country by Indira Gandhi, the people of India saw true colours of INC. Janata party led by Shri. Morarji Desai formed a government and made various economic amendments and showed the people of India that pro-Hindutva ideologists can be progressive in nature too. But the damage was done and you can change few peoples’ perspective regarding a subject but not all of them, and this misconception about RSS still persists today with even more vile accusations. Like that of being called as a terrorist organisation by the left ideologists and the bought media. It is a political conspiracy aimed at vilification of Hindu saints and army officers in the name of ‘saffron terror’.

RSS has been in the news for most of our independent history mostly for the wrong reasons. From being banned thrice as an organisation to forming a full majority government [BJP] with a nationalistic and Hindutva ideology [twice], the RSS has come a long way.

How did the term ‘saffron terror‘ come into existence?

It was first used by the magazine, FRONTLINE based in Chennai whose editor in chief has from the very beginning stood up in oppose of the Hindu uprising. However the widespread use of the term was only after the Malegaon blasts in 2006. ATS officer Hemant Karkare was leading this case, he died in the attacks of 26/11 in Mumbai. The main accused in this case, Sadhvi Pragya Thakur is a sitting Member of Parliament. To summarise the Malegaon case, the bombs exploded and killed 40 people and 125 people injured. The bomb was strapped to a bike registered in the name of Sadhvi Pragya. However there is no evidence found by the NIA which says that Pragya was involved in the matter when it took over the case back in 2011. The left propagandists use this investigation to further manipulate masses regarding saffron terror. The phrase “Not guilty until proven” has lost its meaning in this case.

For most of the people, Sadhvi Pragya is a terrorist in a saffron outfit with an image of a saint. Initially the ATS suspected LeT [Lashkar-e-Toiba] of involvement in attacks and 7 Muslims were arrested [later released], but after the NIA took over it arrested 4 Hindus who were all associated to right wing group called Abhinav Bharat. The ATS of Maharashtra expresses its thoughts over the issue as it was highly not possible that Hindu right wing groups had the organisation to carry out such attacks, and that RDX bombings are carried out by Islamic terror outfits. On 28th November 2006, Mumbai police stated that two Pakistani nationals were involved in the blasts. The case is still in court but the media and Muslim leaders have already concluded it an act of ‘saffron terror’.

Similarly every possible allegation has been made against RSS, to the grave extent of naming them as masterminds of 26/11. Misconceptions about RSS is a manufactured one. Nobody tries to clear these misconceptions. In Karnataka and Kerela, Swayamsewaks are being killed systematically and no media talks about it. Ajmal kasab was sent with a red thread on his wrist by the Pakistani based terror group, so that once the terrorists get killed by the police, the red thread is linked with Hindu terror. The then UPA government led by Congress pressured the officials to link the attack with Hindu terror or to be frank with the RSS, but it was concluded that the attacks were held by Lashkar-e-Taiba an Islamic terrorist group based in Pakistan. Ajmal kasab was supposed to die under the name Sudhir Chaudhary, an ID was recovered from him.

Saffron is a sacred colour for Hindu’s all over the world. By using it before the word “terror”, it is hurting sentiments of crores of Hindu’s all around the globe. We Hindu’s have been tolerant all this time, always believed in our dharma. In this country secularism and democracy work in a very crooked manner. Had this been something about a minority such as Islam and its religious terror activities, it would be hurting sentiments and what not. India is a land which has given birth to so many religions around the world, hindu’s are one of the most tolerant people regarding such matters. Saffron/Hindu terror has never been justified or proved. Saffron terror is a mere play by the psuedo-secular groups to manipulate masses into believing that Hindutva ideologists are extremists and can go to any extent to achieve complete hindutva. But as Savarkar said Hinduism is way of life, and Hindutva is a way how you express it! Jai Shivaji!
