The students of AMU say a loud ‘No’ to RSS Shakha in AMU

1925 marks the birth year of the hateful and terror-breeding organisation Rastriya Swayam Sewak Sangh, founded by Dr. K. B. Hegdewar and VD Savarkar. The much-exaggerated ‘Veer’ Savarkar was the same person who pleaded and begged to the British numerous times from jail for mercy and his release. Later, these fanatics shared by common ideology came under the banner of RSS. The tail of espionage and working hand in glove with the British is much known in the history of pre-independent India. From exchanging outfits and staging violence to spitting venom in public meetings there has been no stone left unturned by the RSS to break down the social fabric of India.

It was on 30th January, 1947 when MK Gandhi was gunned down by the Hindu fanatic and member of the RSS Nathuram Godse at Birla House, Delhi. Soon after the death of Gandhiji, in a letter to Golwalkar dated 11th September, 1948 Sardar Patel the then home minister of India pointed out “Opposition turned more severe, when the RSS men expressed joy and distributed sweets after Gandhi’s death.” What does this indicate? And why was RSS so happy that it had to distribute sweets after the killing of Gandhi?

In a letter dated 14th March, 1948, Dr. Rajendra Prasad wrote to Sardar Patel:
“I am told that RSS people have a plan of creating trouble. They have got a number of men dressed as Muslims and looking like Muslims who are to create trouble with the Hindus by attacking them and thus inciting the Hindus. Similarly, there will be some Hindus among them who will attack Muslims and thus incite Muslims. The result of this kind of trouble amongst the Hindus and Muslims will be to create conflagration.”

Among RSS’s ideological forefathers the so called ‘Guru’ Golwalkar occupies a big space, in his book ‘Bunch Of Thoughts’ M. S. Golwalkar spits out venom in the following words:
“Even to this day there are so many who say, ‘now there is no Muslim problem at all. All those riotous elements who supported Pakistan have gone away once for all. The remaining Muslims are devoted to our country. After all, they have no other place to go and they are bound to remain loyal’… It would be suicidal to delude ourselves into believing that they have turned patriots overnight after the creation of Pakistan on the contrary, the Muslim menace has increased a hundredfold by the creation of Pakistan which has become a springboard for all their future aggressive designs on our country.”

How the narrative for Indian Muslims having nexus with Pakistan has come to fore in contemporary times we need to look back of how virulent this notion was treatisised by Golwalkar in his book, “…within the country there are so many Pakistans’… The conclusion is that, in practically every place, there are Muslims who are in constant touch with Pakistan over transmitter…”

There are some serious questions that need to be answered; it is a deep travesty for our country that the heads of incumbent dispensation are members of the same traitor organization.

RSS, which was responsible for pre and post-independence rioting, conspiring and spreading communal hatred, paradoxically in contemporary India claims itself to be nationalist and seek others patriotism for the nation. After seventy years of Independence it is bemoaning to see that elected BJP MPs like Sakshi Maharaj demands to declare Nathuram Godse as a national patriot.

Now coming to the recent row, it is highly bemoaning to see morons and ignorants like Aamir Rasheedi demand opening an RSS shakha in AMU. The students and faculties of Aligarh Muslim University are much educated and well aware of the fact of how RSS worked as puppets of the British and is responsible for spreading hatred, violence, communal rioting, pogroms, carnages and moreover killing of Gandhi. We the students of AMU will not let a traitor organization like RSS into the varsity’s campus and strictly warn people like Rasheedi to keep their idiotic ideas outside. AMU is a diverse, inclusive, plural and democratic institution of whose character is totally hostile to the ideology of the Sangh. Do not dare even to keep an evil eye on AMU.
