Hindus were sacrificial animals to Gandhi

In 1920, two books were published titled – Krishna Teri Gita Jalani Padegi and Unnisvi Sadi Ka Lumpat Maharishi by anonymous authors and publishers. Those books were freely distributed among Muslims for 2-3 years through all Mosques in India. As the names of the books suggested, the books were meant to insult the religious sentiment of Hindus. When news about those books reached him, Gandhi came forward and said that every Indian had freedom to express his opinion. So, Gandhi supported the Muslims in insulting the religious sentiment of Hindus.

It was the same period (1919-1924) when Gandhi dragged Hindus of India to support the Caliphate Movement of Indian Muslims, when the Muslims of Turkey stood against their Caliphate. It was the same period (1921) when Hindus of Kerala were butchered, women raped, property destroyed and force-converted to Islam under the Jihad, launched by Moplah Muslims. When India was reeling under that blood-curdling vicious Jihad, Gandhi again came forward to support Islamic Jihad on tens of thousands of Hindus in Kerala by saying “Brave God-fearing Moplahs who were fighting for what they consider as religion and in a manner which they consider as religious”.

In 1924 a satirical book Rangeela Rasool was published, from Lahore in Urdu language, on the marriage and sex life of Muhammad. It was written by a member of Arya Samaj. The writer’s name was not made public. One Mahashe Rajpal was the publisher of the book. It was a Hindu response to two books written and published by the Muslims in 1920 to mock and abuse Hinduism. Initially there was no issue or argument around the book Rangeela Rasool.

But suddenly Gandhi flared-up and exploded the situation through his article in Young India which strongly condemned the said book. Then, after multiple attempts on his life, Mahashe Rajpal was murdered in April 1929 at Lahore by a 20-year-old Muslim named Alimuddin. Gandhi did not utter a single word condemning the murder.

Beginning of the twentieth century saw an increasing trend in Hindu-Muslim hostility. Indian Muslim League was established in 1906 at Dhaka, to serve the interest of Muslims of British India. As a response to that, Hindu Mahasabha was formed in 1915 to look after Hindu interests. Swami Shraddhanand, a monk of Arya Samaj initiated Suddhi Movement in 1923 to reconvert the Muslims to Hinduism. He was successful in reconverting many Muslims to Hinduism. A Muslim woman named Ajgari Begum from Karachi was initiated into Hindu Dharma too. That incident created a furore among Muslims. 

On 23 December 1926, a Muslim fanatic, Abdul Rashid, murdered Swami Shraddhanand in his Delhi residence. But Gandhi did not condemn the murder, least of all to ask the Muslims to do so. At the Guwahati session of the Congress on 25 December 1926, Gandhi in the speech referred to the murderer as Bhai. Gandhi said “Now you will perhaps understand why I have called Abdul Rashid a brother and I repeat it. I do not even regard him as guilty of Swamiji’s murder. Guilty indeed are all those who excited feelings of hatred against one another.”

Between 1920 and 1947, there were some dozens of Hindu-Muslim riots in different parts of British India. At the height of communal riots in 1947, Gandhi advised “Hindus should not harbour anger in their hearts against Muslims even if the latter wanted to destroy them. Even if the Muslims want to kill us all we should face death bravely. If they established their rule after killing Hindus, we would be ushering a new world by sacrificing our lives”.

Gandhi was a sick man. What new world for Hindus he was ushering after their annihilation? Gandhi kept on appeasing Muslims to satisfy his utopian objective of achieving Hindu-Muslim unity. Even Dr Ambedkar said, “Mr Gandhi has never called the Muslims to account even when they have been guilty of gross crimes against Hindus”. Gandhi’s obsession with Hindu-Muslim unity, only at the cost of Hindus, was fraudulent at the best and delusional at the worst.

In his 33 years (1915 to 1948) of political career in India, Gandhi became a world figure and the epitome of non-violence. Einstein said about Gandhi “Generations to come will scarce believe that such a one as this ever in flesh and blood walked upon this earth”. Gandhi was nominated for Nobel Peace Prize five times between 1937 and 1948, but never got it. Because the selectors knew that the West would not like the glorification of a wily British stooge like Gandhi.
