Hindu and Hindutva is the same; pro-Muslim Congress opposes both !

There is no difference between India and Indianness or mother and motherhood. Similarly, there cannot be any differentiation between Hindu and ‘Hindutva’. Rahul Gandhi and Salman Khurshid may try to explain how ‘Hinduism’ is different from ‘Hindutva’, but Hindus will not be misled by such explanations. Had the Congress leaders felt true love for Hindu Dharma, they wouldn’t have insulted Hindu Dharma by arguing that Bhagavan Shriram and Shrikrushna were fantasies or talked about the threat of saffron terrorism to this country. They would have raised their voice against the persecution of Hindus in Kashmir, Pakistan, and Bangladesh. They have, however, not done anything of this sort, but have started temple-tourism with an eye on elections. The Congress leaders are even humiliating Hindus by comparing them with ‘Boko-Haram’ and terrorists from ISIS. Now, Congress is trying to show their Hindu hatred by painting it in a light colour and by claiming that ‘Hindutva’ and Hinduism are two different things. These Congress leaders should remember that Hindus cannot be misled by such talk. If the Congress leaders truly feel any affinity towards Hindu Dharma, they should ask Salman Khurshid to withdraw his book and render an apology to all Hindus. It is also our demand with the Government that a ban should be imposed on Salman Khurshid’s book titled ‘Sunrise over Ayodhya: Nationhood in our times’, just as the Government has imposed a ban on controversial books on other religions such as ‘Da Vinci Code’, ‘The Satanic Verses’, etc.

Congress should talk about the difference between Islam and jihadi terrorism !

While talking about Hindu terrorism, the Congress leaders differentiate between ‘Hindutva’ and ‘Hinduism’, but they never utter a word about jihadi terrorists who are troubling the whole world with their terrorist activities. Why don’t these leaders talk about the difference between Islam and jihadi terrorism? That time, they try to appease Muslims by making comments like ‘terrorism has no religion; no religion teaches terrorism’, etc; therefore, the pro-Muslim Congress should first clearly talk about jihadi terrorism.

Rahul Gandhi had immediately cried about the so-called attack on Muslims in Tripura; however, he has never said anything about inhumane attacks on innocent Hindus from Bangladesh during the Navaratri festival. It proves that the Congress has only apathy towards Hindus and the Congressmen show their fake interest in Hindu Dharma only at the time of elections; just like the demoness, Putana had exhibited her fake love towards baby Shrikrushna.

Special online discussions on ideological terrorism of Congress !

The disrespect shown by Salman Khurshid through his book is ‘Pan Islam’! – Mr Suresh Chavanke, Chief Editor, Sudarshan channel

In his book, Congress leader Salman Khurshid has compared ‘Hindutva’ with terrorism. This comparison should be seen from a religious angle instead of a political angle. It is not just an issue related to Congress ideology but it is also the agenda of ‘Pan Islam’. (Pan Islam is a political movement which advocates Islamic rule); therefore, it is an attempt to carry on their jihadi movement through various means like books, films, poetry, etc. It is an ideological terrorism of Congress. The policies of Congress are based on Hindu-hatred. It should be noted that visiting temples, fasting during Navaratri, etc are just election gimmicks. So, rather than giving explanation on such accusations, Hindus should pay attention to achieve their goal, stated Mr Suresh Chavanke, the Chief Editor of ‘Sudarshan’ channel during the special online discussions held on the topic of ideological terrorism of Congress.

Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) also held an online agitation against the objectionable statements made by Congress through its leaders. Under this drive, a board was displayed condemning Congress and a memorandum was submitted to the Government in this context. Hindus came together and spontaneously responded to #Congress_Hates_Hindutva, a trend on Twitter, by posting more than 20000 tweets. Read More
