The subsequent events in Indian history would prove that Ganesh Savarkar was right. He could not live to see the light of the day India would become independent. His brother Veer Savarkar continues to be vilified and attacked by the Congress party and its ecosystem. However the Savarkar family's legacy lives on and inspires many. Today, the top leaders of India are groomed by RSS, which had Babarao's blessings.
The reality of the Veer Savarkar’s mercy petition to the British government; was it really voluntary or out of compulsion?
Nehru never faced the same cruelty which Savarkar faced. Being born with a silver spoon in his mouth, he had family connections with the British authorities, and was friends with them; this spared him from most forms of cruelty.
Ajaz Ashraf, of The Scroll, with his WRONG interpretation about a freedom fighter, says Savarkar justified the idea of rape as a political tool
Savarkar quotes Ravana saying, “What? To abduct and rape the womenfolk of the enemy, do you call it irreligious? It is Parodharmah, the greatest duty!” The actual text quotes in Sanskrit as राक्षसांनां परो; धर्म: परदारा विघर्षणम् However, what the Scroll writer conveniently ignores is “राक्षसांनां”. According to the quoted statement, it’s the duty of a demon/monster.
सावरकर का मानना था कि सामाजिक अनुबंध के आधार पर राष्ट्र राज्य मजबूत नहीं हो सकता है तथा राष्ट्रीय एकता स्थापित करने के लिए कोई मजबूत बंधन आवश्यक है। आज जब देश के अलग-अलग क्षेत्रों में जिहादी-वामपंथी गठजोड़ के नेतृत्त्व में अलगाववादी आवाज़े उठती हैं तो सावरकर का सामाजिक अनुबंध को लेकर दृष्टिकोण स्पष्ट समझा जा सकता है।
जिसके भाई को जेल भेज दिया गया हो, पत्नी और भाभी बेघर हो गईं हो, ससुर की नौकरी छीन ली गई हो, वह इन मुसीबतों में भी अपने लक्ष्य से पीछे नहीं हटा, बल्कि मुसीबतों के पहाड़ को चीरता चला गया। उस त्याग, समर्पण और राष्ट्रभक्त का नाम है सावरकर।
It was the Congress which continued to attack Savarkar the most, years after his death. They feared that once Indians got to know Savarkar fully, Nehru and the Congress would be washed away. The fear of Indian Independence movement being democratised would mean the end of Nehru dynasty's divine right to rule. Savarkar's life would open a can of worms for them since it would include his meeting with freedom fighters like Rash Behari Bose, Madanlal Dhingra etc. Many such freedom fighters were not given a deserving position in the History written by Marxists.
When you feel this lockdown like JAIL; do read the prison stories of our freedom fighters and specially of Veer Savarkar to know what their lockdown in JAIL was like.
How left liberals have twisted Savarkar's petition to show that he was a traitor, to malign a true Hindu nationalist
