Which TRULY shameful “Hindu” organisation (now in power) RIDICULED the 1857 mutiny?

This is getting just too much. The RSS "guru" Golwalkar ridiculing the 1857 Mutiny:

The last Mughal ruler of India, Bahadur Zafar, had emerged as the rallying point and symbol of the Great War of Independence of 1857. Golwalkar wrote thus while making fun of him: “In 1857, the so-called last emperor of India had given the clarion call – Gazio mein bu rahegi jub talak eeman ki/takhte London tak chalegi tegh Hindustan ki (Till the warriors remain faithful to their task/Indian swords will reach London.) But ultimately what happened? Everybody knows that”.30 [ The Freedom Movement & The RSS: A Story of Betrayal, by Shamsul Islam]

Which organisation (now in power) DID NOT WANT THE BRITISH TO LEAVE INDIA?

This one is quite shocking. Yes, Modi's RSS ACTIVELY DID NOT WANT THE BRITISH TO LEAVE:

During the course of a speech at Indore in 1960 he said, “Many people worked with the inspiration to free the country by throwing the British out. After formal departure of the British this inspiration slackened. In fact there was no need to have this much inspiration. We should remember that in our pledge we have talked of the freedom of the country through defending religion and culture. These is no mention of departure of the British in that”. As late as March 1947 when the British had decided to go away from India, Guruji while addressing the annual day function of the RSS at Delhi, declared that leaders with narrow vision were trying to opposed the state power of the British

While narrating an incident in the course of his speech he got more original on the issue: “Once a respectable senior gentleman came to our shakha (the drill). He had brought a new message for the volunteers of the RSS. When given an opportunity to address the volunteers of the shakha, he spoke in a very impressive tone, ‘Now do only one work. Catch hold of the British, bash them and throw them out. Whatever happens we will see late on’. He said this much and sat down. Behind this ideology is a feeling of anger and sorrow towards state power and reactionary tendency based on hatred. The evil with today’s political sentimentalism is that its basis is reaction, sorrow and anger, and opposition to the victors forgetting friendliness. Somebody went to the extent of saying that, ‘it is through opposition that national life builds up and only through it power of organization appears’. And if a question is put before them that what is the basis of the opposition? Then the reason is told that we are being exploited economically. We get fewer jobs in armed forces, government offices. Freedom is required so that lot of wealth is gotten, there is no shortage of employment and food and water. In other words ‘freedom is freedom from poverty’ in other words if get rich we will be free. If a dog procures lots of fresh bread then it is sufficient. Their ideal is that India should become dog of a rich person, and face no shortage of food water and shelter”.26

The RSS was not even willing to regard colonial domination as an injustice. In a speech of June 8, 1942, Golwalkar had declared: “Sangh does not want to blame anybody else for the present degraded state of the society. When the people start blaming others, then there is weakness in them. It is futile to blame the strong for the injustice done to the weak… Sangh does not want to waste its invaluable time in abusing or criticizing other. If we know that large fish eat the smaller ones, it is outright madness to blame the big fish. Law of nature whether good or bad is true all the time. This rule does not change by terming it unjust”.27

Which organisation (now in power) wrote NOT ONE WORD criticising British rule from its inception to 1947?

You guessed it! Modi's RSS, which is living off the work of Gandhi and other freedom fighers.

"there is not a single line challenging, exposing, criticizing or confronting the inhuman rule of the British masters in the entire literature of the RSS from 1925 to 1947" [The Freedom Movement & The RSS: A Story of Betrayal, by Shamsul Islam]

Indeed:

Golwalkar’s Super Hindu Race seemed to have no antagonism towards the British rulers who in fact were foreigners in the real sense of the term and who had given only misery, hunger, poverty, and death to multitudes of Indians, the vast majority of whom were Hindus. [ibid]

This is also something I've noticed in my readings on Golwalkar and Savarkar.

Which organisation (now in power) denigrated Bhagat Singh and Chandrashekhar Azad?

You bet. It is Modi's RSS – a parasitical FALSEHOOD-BASED organisation that is trying to even take over the Gandhi jayanti after having DISTRIBUTED SWEETS UPON HIS MUREDER.

There is ample proof in the documents of the RSS which conclusively establishes the fact that RSS denounced movements led by revolutionaries like Bhagat Singh, Chandrashekhar Azad and their associates. Not only that, they hated even the reformist and moderate movements conducted by leaders like Gandhiji against the British rulers.

Here is a passage from Bunch of Thoughts decrying the whole tradition of martyrs: “There is no doubt that such men who embrace martyrdom are great heroes and their philosophy too is pre-eminently manly. They are far above the average men who meekly submit to fate and remain in fear and inaction. All the same, such persons are not held up as ideals in our society. We have not looked upon their martyrdom as the highest point of greatness to which men should aspire. For, after all, they failed in achieving their ideal, and failure implies some fatal flaw in them”.14 Could there be a statement more insulting and denigrating to the martyrs than this?  [The Freedom Movement & The RSS: A Story of Betrayal, by Shamsul Islam]

Which organisation (now in power in India) never condemned the British but demonised Gandhi’s fight against the British?

Yes, you are right. RSS.

Virulent opposition to Hindu-Muslim unity and to a united people’s struggle against British rule was the programme pursued by the RSS throughout the forties. Gandhiji was projected as the villain who was a hurdle to the establishment of Hindu Rashtra. Significantly the British, who encouraged Jinnah’s communal politics and used the Muslim League as a convenient tool for imposing partition on the Indian subcontinent, were never condemned by the RSS, whereas Gandhiji who worked ceaselessly to prevent partition was demonized. This demonization of Gandhiji culminated in his assassination in 1948.  [The Freedom Movement & The RSS: A Story of Betrayal, by Shamsul Islam]

Further:

The single most important ‘contribution’ of the RSS was to consistently disrupt the unified struggle of the Indian people against British imperialism through its extreme exclusivist slogan of Hindu Rashtra. RSS denounced movements led by revolutionaries like Bhagat Singh, Chandrashekhar Azad and their associates. Not only that, they hated even the reformist and moderate movements conducted by leaders like Gandhiji against the British rulers. [ibid]

After RSS doing NOTHING (EVER) against the British, who said during Quit India 1942 “the Sangh decided not to do anything directly”?

Golwalkar.

Modi's RSS IS A SOLELY ANTI-MUSLIM ORGANISATION.

It never did ONE bit to support the struggle against the British. [See this]. Instead it KILLED the greatest leader of the freedom struggle: Gandhi. It not only celebrated the killing of Gandhi by distributing sweets, it continues to praise Nathuram Godse and recentlywondered why Godse didn't kill NEHRU, instead.

99.999999 per cent of its violent activities are directed at Muslims, and Hindus who want a peaceful, united India.

"In 1942 also there was a strong sentiment in the hearts of many. At that time too the routine work of Sangh continued. Sangh decided not to do anything directly". [Golwalkar, in Shri Guruji Samagra Darshan, Vol. IV, Nagpur, n.d., p. 41, cited in The Freedom Movement & The RSS: A Story of Betrayal, by Shamsul Islam]

NOTHING. NOT ONE IOTA OF WORK THE RSS OR HINDU MAHASABHA DID AGAINST THE BRITISH. ALL THEIR EFFORTS WERE TOWARDS DIVIDING THE COUNTRY AND HATING THE MUSLIMS.

He specifically said that RSS was NOT anti-British:

Guru Golwalkar in fact made it clear that the variety of nationalism which the RSS espoused had no anti-British or anti-imperialist content whatsoever: “The theories of territorial nationalism and of common danger, which formed the basis for our concept of nation, had deprived us of the positive and inspiring content of our real Hindu Nationhood and made many of the ‘freedom movements’ virtually anti-British movements. Anti-Britishism was equated with patriotism and nationalism. This reactionary view has had disastrous effects upon the entire course of the freedom movement, its leaders and the common people” [M.S. Golwalkar, Bunch of Thoughts, Bangalore, 1996, p. 138, cited in The Freedom Movement & The RSS: A Story of Betrayal, by Shamsul Islam]
