Why are we letting Hindutva forces trample upon the Constitution of India?

Written by Vidya Bhushan Rawat | Published on: November 26, 2018

The Dharma Sansad opposes the Constitution of India because the new breed of Manuvadis doesn’t have any faith in it. The attack on Babri Masjid on Dec 6 was an attack on the Constitution of India. The protestors high on Brahmanical powers are mobilising against the constitution of India and the reservation system.

They call it 'Dharma-Sansad' but why should we need it when we already have the 'Sansad' elected by the people. But ‘Dharm Sansad’ is actually the Brahmanical monopoly over us. It is meant to maintain it because the politically elected 'Sansad' has given representation to diverse sections of our society. Politically elected Sansad's discuss, debate and decide but the Dharm Sansad has no faith in discussions and debates as they only believe in dictating things.
 
When the matter is in the court, the decision should be made by it, but then a political party and its father organisation from Nagpur never believe so because they have nothing to showcase to the people of India. They want to change the popular narrative. For every question you ask, it looks that Jawahar Lal Nehru was responsible for everything. Perhaps, that might be right too as whatever be the weaknesses, Nehru definitely remains of the most outstanding architects of modern democratic India.
 
We remember our constitutional forefathers on the Constitution Day and Baba Saheb Ambedkar rightfully warned us that if the country is unable to resolve the social and cultural inequalities in the form of caste discrimination based on the birth based identities, India's democracy will be in peril. But rather than fighting against the discrimination on a war footing, the forces of the status quo are working against it and have waged a war against the constitution.
 
धर्म संसद संविधान विरोधी है क्योंकि उसमे आने वाले मनुवादीयो की भारत के संविधान में कोई भी आस्था नहीं है. ६ दिसंबर को बाबरी मस्जिद का ध्वंश असल में भारत के संविधान पर हमला था. आज संविधान विरोधी, आरक्षण विरोधी ब्राह्मणवादी शक्तिया फिर लामबंद हो रही है. सामने निशाने पर मुसलमान जरुर दिखाई देते है लेकिन दरअसल असली निशाना दलित पिछडो और आदिवासियों में हो रही जागरूकता है जो अपने अधिकारों के लिए लगातार लड़ रहे है और बाबा साहेब आंबेडकर के दिखाए रास्ते पर चल कर आधुनिकता की और बढ़ रहे है. कुंठित मनुवादी शक्तिया उनके बढ़ते कदमो को रोक देना चाहती है इसलिए ये पूरे खेल खेले जा रहे है. हिंदुत्व में दलित पिछडो को अपने अजेंडे में धर्म के जरिये घुसाने की कोशिश की है ताकि वे अपने अधिकारों की लड़ाई भूल जाए और फिर उसी वर्ण व्यवस्था को मज़बूत करे जिसका वह शिकार है.
 
(The Dharma Sansad opposes the Constitution of India because the new breed of Manuvadis doesn’t have any faith in it. The attack on Babri Masjid on Dec 6 was an attack on the Constitution of India. The protestors high on Brahmanical powers are mobilising against the constitution of India and the reservation system. It seems as though the target is on the Muslims but it is actually on the Dalits and backward castes who are becoming more aware of their rights and forging ahead on the path of development shown by Babasaheb Ambedkar. The frustrated Manuvadi forces want to stop these steps and is thus playing these games. Hindutva forces want to bring the Dalit and backward people into their religious agenda so that they forget the fight for their rights and strengthen the Varna system that victimises them.)
 
A friend has just written that the Bible, Gita or Quran are not in danger but it is the constitution of India. Yes, it is the constitution of India which gives us the right to change even a law which otherwise our religious texts would not allow. A text in any religious book is unchangeable but the quality and speciality of the modern laws are that we know that the needs of the people change over time.
 
The big congregation in Ayodhya is nothing but an attempt to divert people's attention from the ongoing elections in the state as well as to polarise the atmosphere throughout the country and prepare the grounds for the upsurge of Hindutva before the elections. As I said so many times, this government seems to be at war with its own people. it has no faith in rule of law as a majority of the lawmakers have more faith in Manuwad than the constitution of India. The question is when the matter is pending in the court, where is the need to rush to Ayodhya, a tiny city of around one hundred thousand people. Today, the city of Ayodhya and Faizabad will have a huge gathering of outsiders who want to convert the city into a war zone as they did it on December 6, 1992, when they razed the constitution of India to the ground.
 
Whatever be the weaknesses of the Indian state, technically, it remained a secular state which we all felt proud of. Our neighbours too were envious of us because of political freedom. But look at the irony Pakistan has consistently trying to cleanse its image by doing things which would gladden the heart of those who are concern about minority rights. The opening of Kartarpur Saheb corridor and an invitation to Indian leaders to participate in the ground-breaking ceremony of the place has given Pakistan goodwill among the Sikh community too. A few months back when Navjot Singh Sidhu attended the swearing-in ceremony of Prime Minister Imran Khan and hugged the Pakistani General, the C grade Indian anchors targeted him for disrespecting the martyrs of India. Today, Narendra Modi is talking about people’s contact and compared the Kartarpur Saheb corridor to the fall of the Berlin Wall. But does Modi really feel that people to people contact also includes Muslims of both the sides who have been the victims of partition, a blame for which they are still being punished? What will the government of India do to increase people to people contact? Does it only mean Hindus from Pakistan and Bangladesh along with Sikhs are welcome in India but not the Muslims?
 
The ruling party and its motormouth leaders are trying to convert India into a Brahmanical theocracy and they have succeeded, albeit partially. It won’t stay for long as whatever exercise they may initiate to divert people's attention, the question of participation in power, in jobs and a demand for equality will always be there.
 
Ayodhya's Ram temple can’t resolve our hunger crisis. Strange thing is that Lord Rama has been separated from Sita. If you see the actual images, Rama was always seen with Sita, Lakshman and Hanuman and that made the perfect picture for many who consider him as an ideal but Hindutva forces want a macho image of Lord Rama and hence they are popularising his single image. How dangerous could that be?
 
If our anchors and reporters have time, I urge them to travel to Uttar Pradesh, Poorvanchal and Bundelkhand regions within the vicinity of 200 kilometres of Ayodhya and Varanasi and you can find numerous families still living in abject poverty, hunger as well as suffering caste discrimination and untouchability. Today, a huge number of people who would be congregating there may be of these communities too. Will your Dharm Sansad ever give a call against caste system and untouchability? No, they will try to justify it.
 
The Uttar Pradesh government will invest thousands of crores of rupees to build the statue of Lord Rama. A huge amount of land will be acquired. We don’t know how much but I am sure that the poor Dalit Bahujan communities and farmers would be targeted. For 'nation' building, we will ask for the 'sacrifices' from the rural poor while the Manuvadi’s enjoy the political limelight. We want to ask the government, whose land and from where will this land be acquired for the statue?  
 
Yes, they want a big museum for Lord Rama. We hope the museum have Shambook too as well as other stories of how Bali was killed. It is important to explain to people as to why was he killed. BJP considers Dr Baba Saheb Ambedkar as their 'pratahsmaraniya', the person who is revered in the morning. A museum for Lord Rama should definitely have great work of literature on him. Will the Sangh Parivar, who claims to love and respect Baba Saheb Ambedkar, put his critique- ‘Riddles of Hinduism and Riddles of Rama and Krishna’ in the museum so that people are allowed to know the other side of the story too?
 
We sincerely hope that the administration will uphold the rule of law today and will not allow things to go out of hand. How ironical is it that a party which rose on the anti-north Indian sentiments in Maharashtra today is raking up the issue of building up the temple of Lord Rama in Ayodhya. Channels are working overtime to make Ram Temple a national issue. Temple construction has become a national ‘sentiment’ in which Muslims have to contribute with all their might, they say. My question to all the bhakts is same. If the Muslims contribute to building the temple in Ayodhya then will the war cries end? Will they stop their insanity on building up temples everywhere? Will they stop crying against Muslims then?
 
It is deeply distressing how the Manuvadi forces, just to maintain their hegemony, are out and out ready to destroy our plural fabric, our constitution and our rule of law. The Supreme Court has a bigger task ahead of it now. A strong message to all must go from the Court that any violation of its order will mean contempt of the court and severe punishment and not merely a symbolic punishment of Kalyan Singh types which made him the hero of the event. We request the administration of Ayodhya and government of Uttar Pradesh to ensure confidence among the Muslims of the region who are fleeing as per reports out of fear. This is dangerous. The home minister must speak and assure the nation about this. India cannot and should not be allowed to be bullied by a religious frenzy mob. The Supremacy and sanctity of the constitution must be maintained as it is the only binding force in India. Any failure of it will only be detrimental to our unity and integrity.
 
अयोध्या में सुप्रीम कोर्ट के आदेशो का पालन होना चाहिए. आज वहा का मुसलमान तनाव में है और बहुत से लोगो के घर छोड़ने की खबरे भी आई है. केंद्रीय गृह मंत्री को इस सन्दर्भ में देश को आश्वस्त करना होगा. संविधान के साथ धोखा बर्दास्त नहीं किया जा सकता. भारत की एकता और अखंडता को कायम रखने के लिए संविधान की सर्वोच्चता और पवित्रता का सम्मान करना होगा और उसकी पूरी जिम्मेवारी राज्य सरकार और प्रशासन की है लेकिन केन्द्रीय सरकार और उच्चतम न्यायालय को स्थिति पर पूरी नज़र रखनी होगी. हम आशा करते है के लोग कानून के दायरे में रहकर ही अपनी बैठक करेंगे और किसी भी प्रकार के गैर कानूनी हरकत नहीं करेंगे ताकि पूरे क्षेत्र में शांति और सौहार्द का माहौल बना रहे.
