Changing Strategies of RSS politics

This December, Babri demolition act completed its 19years. On the occasion many a Muslim groups demanded the reconstruction of the masjid. This demand is just but is mired in many a complex legalities and is trapped in the politics in which there are many diverse players. One again needs to clarify that Hindutva is not a religion of Hindus. Religion of Hindus is Hinduism. Hindutva is the politics of RSS; it is a politics with sectarian vision. This is the vision of affluent upper caste- elite aiming to abolish democracy. Hindutva aims to bring a nation in the name of Hindu religion where the upper crust of society can rule as per the norms prevalent in feudal society. The trick involved here is that these norms of feudal society, the birth based hierarchy, is presented as a glorious tradition and in given the modern language and form.

Kabaddi tournament 'for Hindus only'
Anisha Sheth

A kabaddi tournament being organised by a Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS)-affiliated association has raised concerns here.


The Hindu Jagran Vedike, the youth wing of the RSS, is organising a kabaddi tournament for men and women on Sunday. However, the invitation card and press notes for the event carry a rider: only Hindus can participate.

Writer K. Phaniraj said: “RSS-affiliated organisations make no bones about furthering their agenda of making Muslims and Christians second-class citizens of the country.” He added that a public event only for Hindus was “clearly a show of enmity against other communities, which is against the Constitution”.

He said that law enforcement agencies and the district administration must take note of such instances and take suitable action.

State vice-president of the People's Union for Civil Liberties, Suresh Bhat, agreed that the district administration should take action and prevent the event from happening.

HYDERABAD: Nowhere have the Muslims felt more at home in India than in Hyderabad. This is not just because of sheer numbers - 40 per cent of the city's population is Muslim (around 27 per cent in Greater Hyderabad) - but also because a culture that is a synthesis of local and traditions derived from Islam dominates the region. But in the aftermath of the integration of Hyderabad into India it was not like this. The years that followed 1948 were years of confused identity for the Hyderabadi Muslim. Many migrated to Pakistan, other affluent sections to UK, USA and even Canada. A large number of those who stayed back withdrew into their own shell, losing confidence in the process, regressing economically and perceiving themselves as second class citizens. Over time they realized that the traditions of secular India were strong and so was the case in Andhra Pradesh.
