Golwalkar’s inflated, even false, claims about Hinduism and India

The problem with Golwalkar is his **complete** absence of critical thinking ability. HIs writings are full of generalisations that would compete with the falsehoods of Karl Marx. These generalisations lay down traps in which the unwary reader can easily fall.

Both factually and logically he is wrong about almost everything.

The only way to read Golwalkar is to question every statement for accuracy and coherence. The man also contradicts himself repeatedly.

Here are a few examples.

1) Illustration of one of the many idle boasts that underpins Golwalkar. From Bunch of Thoughts. He simplifies the West’s contributions, undermines the huge work done by the West to promote human rights, liberty, science and prosperity. India’s “work” pales in comparison. Clowns like Golwalkar with extremist “nationalist” views have made everything much worse for India and the world. He and his criminal associates have no reason to boast.

2) Another illustration of the most bogus and ridiculous claims from the man who built one of the most violent organisations in the world, one of whose members killed Gandhi and members of which have killed tens of thousands of innocents (if not more) over the years.

– from Bunch of Thoughts

3) In which Golwalkar further shows his pathetic ignorance about the world, in order to somehow justify a “Hindu” nation. Such bogus claims are scattered throughout his work.

As far as the great “sages” who emerge from India in each generation, let me note that most of them are perverts and predators, others are shady petty magicians who trick their gullible audience into believing in their “super” powers. All of them criminals, no exception.

And these kinds of inflated claims about “spirituality” make no sense from a man who STRONGLY SUPPORTED the murder of millions of Jews by Hitler.

– the extract below is again from Bunch of Thoughts.

4) Serious. This is the kind of garbage this Golwalkar writes. “Our arms stretched as far as America on the one side – that was long long before Columbus ‘discovered’ America!”

ONLY LUNATICS WILL BELIEVE THIS GUY. BUT MODI IS OBVIOUSLY ONE.

5) More idle bombast and a flood of falsehoods – from Golwalkar’s We, or out nationhood defined.

Golwalkar’s visceral hatred for Muslims #3

From Bunch of Thoughts

When we say “This is the Hindu Nation”, there are some who immediately come up with the question, “What about the Muslims and the Christians dwelling in this land? Are they not also born and bred here? How could they become aliens just because they have changed their faith?” But the crucial point is whether THEY remember that they are the children of this soil.

the question before us now is, what is the attitude of those people who have been converted to Islam or Christianity? They are born in this land, no doubt. But are they true to their salt? Are they grateful to this land which has brought them up? Do they feel that they are the children of this land and its tradition, and that to serve it is their great good fortune? Do they feel it a duty to serve her? No!

They have also developed a feeling of identification with the enemies of this land.

So we see that it is not merely a case of change of faith, but a change even in national identity. What else is it, if not treason, to join the camp of the enemy leaving their mother-nation in the lurch?

The mere fact of birth or nurture in a particular territory, without a corresponding mental pattern, can never give a person the status of a national in that land.

Mere common residence in a particular territory cannot forge an unified national society with common character and qualities. The newcomers should bring about a total metamorphosis in their life-attitudes and take a rebirth, as it were, in that ancient national lineage.

all that we say is that the Muslims and Christians here should give up their present foreign mental complexion and merge in the common stream of our national life.

only a handful of Muslims came here as enemies and invaders. So also, only a few foreign Christian missionaries came here. Now the Muslims and Christians have enormously grown in number. They did not grow just by multiplication as in the case of fishes. They converted the local population.

It is our duty to call these our forlorn brothers, suffering under religious slavery for centuries, back to their ancestral home. As honest freedom-loving men, let them overthrow all signs of slavery and domination and follow the ancestral ways of devotion and national life.

we shall rejoice and offer our love and respect when all those our brethren who have been wandering for so many centuries outside our house come back to our fold. There is no compulsion here. This is only a call and request to them to understand things properly and come back and identify themselves with their ancestral Hindu way of life in dress, customs, performing marriage ceremonies and funeral rites and such other things.

we should make it clear that the non-Hindu who lives here has a rashtra dharma (national responsibility), a samaja dharma (duty to society), a kula dharma (duty to ancestors), and only in his vyakti dharma (personal faith) he can choose any path which satisfies his spiritual urge. If, even after fulfilling all those various duties in social life, anybody says that he has studied Quran Sherif or the Bible and that way of worship strikes a sympathetic chord in his heart, that he can pray better through that path of devotion, we have absolutely no objection.

there are some who imagine that the concept of Hindu Nation is a challenge to the very existence of the Muslim and the Christian co-citizens and they will be thrown out and exterminated. Nothing could be more absurd or detrimental to our national sentiment.

BUT: This last statement was, of course, a big lie. Golwalkar had made clear his intentions towards the Muslims in We:

The ancient Race spirit, which prompted the Germanic tribes to over-run the whole of Europe, has re-risen in modern Germany, with the result that the Nation perforce follows aspirations, predetermined by the traditions left by its depredatory ancestors.

The other Nation most in the eye of the world today is Germany. This Nation affords a very striking example. Modern Germany strove, and has to a great extent achieved what she strove for, to once again bring under one sway the whole of the territory, hereditarily possessed by the Germans but which, as a result of political disputes, had been portioned off as different countries under different states

This natural and logical aspiration of Germany has almost been fulfilled and the great importance of the ‘country factor” has been once again vindicated even in the living present.

To keep up the purity of the Race and its culture, Germany shocked the world by her purging the country of the Semitic Races—the Jews. Race pride at its highest has been manifested here. Germany has also shown how well-nigh impossible it is for Races and cultures, having differences going to the root, to be assimilated into one united whole, a good lesson for us in Hindusthan to learn and profit by.

All the five constituents of the Nation Idea have been boldly vindicated in modern Germany and that too, today in the actual present, when we can for ourselves see and study them, as they manifest themselves in their relative importance.

The foreign races in Hindusthan must either adopt the Hindu culture and language, must learn to respect and hold in reverence Hindu religion, must entertain no idea but those of the glorification of the Hindu race and culture, i.e., of the Hindu nation and must lose their separate existence to merge in the Hindu race, or may stay in the country, wholly subordinated to the Hindu Nation, claiming nothing, deserving no privileges, far less any preferential treatment – not even citizen’s rights.

Golwalkar’s visceral hatred for Muslims #2

Here’s more from A Bunch of Thoughts

It has been the tragic lesson of the history of many a country in the world that the hostile elements within the country pose a far greater menace to national security than aggressors from outside. Unfortunately, this first lesson of national security has been the one thing, which has been consistently ignored in our country ever since the British left this land.

All the crores of Muslims who are here even now, had en bloc voted for Pakistan.

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 hundred fold by the creation of Pakistan which has become a springboard for all their future aggressive designs on our country.

The first blow got them Pakistan.

Their direct aggression, whetted by their first success, then turned against Kashmir. There too they met with success, though partial. One third of Kashmir continues to be in their clutches even to this day. Now, Pakistan is trying to gobble up the rest of Kashmir also with the help of powerful pro-Pakistani elements inside Kashmir.

The second front of their aggression is increasing their numbers in strategic areas of our country. After Kashmir, Assam is their next target.

There are sure signs that an explosive situation similar to that if 1946-47 is fast brewing and there is no knowing when it will blow up. Right form Delhi to Rampur and Lucknow, the Muslims are busy hatching a dangerous plot, piling up arms and mobilising their men and probably biding their time to strike from within when Pakistan decides upon an armed conflict with our country. And when they do strike, it is very likely that even Delhi may be rocked to its foundations unless we wake up in time to nip the mischief in the bud.

the All-India President of the Muslim League came out which the statement that theirs was the same old party with not a shadow of change! Now in Kerala, they openly propagate an independent ‘Moplanad’.

Everywhere the Muslims are being abetted in their separatist and subversive activities by our own Government, our leaders and political parties.

all over the country wherever there is a masjid or a Muslim mohalla, the Muslims feel that it is their own independent territory.

Though the High courts have upheld the fundamental right of the citizens to go in procession with band in all public roads, the Government, under the cover of discretionary powers vested in the executive for regulating processions in the interest of peace and order, often prevents the Hindus altogether from taking out processions in streets where masjids happen to be situated.

within the country there are so many Muslim pockets, i.e., so many ‘miniature Pakistans’, where the general law of the land is to be enforced only with certain modifications and the whims of the miscreants have to be given the final say.

, in practically every place, there are Muslims who are in constant touch with Pakistan over the transmitter enjoying not only the right of an average citizen but also some extra privileges and extra favour because they are ‘minorities’

Even today, Muslims, whether in high position of the Government or outside, participate openly in rabidly anti-national conferences.

They have now been emboldened to such an extent that they are not only contesting elections in the name of the Muslim League in several provinces but are invariably raising the slogan ‘Pakistan Zindabad’ in their public meetings and processions.

Let us cry a halt, before it is too late, to this long and suicidal spell of wishful thinking and come to grips with the cruel realities of the situation keeping the interests of national security and integrity as the one supreme consideration.

Golwalkar’s visceral hatred for Muslims #1

I have read bits and pieces of Golwalkar in the past. I will now write a book in which I’ll demolish his false nationalism.

I’ll occasionally make note of some of his writings on this blog for ready reference for my ongoing research. There are just too many problems with Golwalkar. He MASSIVELY DISTORTS REALITY and sees everything through a prism of Brahminical and Vedic superiority. Nothing, not one thing, that he writes is cogent or makes sense. And yet he led RSS for many decades.

I’ll directly annotate Word version of his books (We and Bunch) – so much of my research notes will be found within these annotations over the coming weeks and months.

From Bunch of Thoughts

The invaders such as the Greeks, Hunas and the Shakas who came previously were either defeated and driven out or, if some of them stayed over, were absorbed in the Hindu Society. But the invaders who came during the last ten or twelve centuries could not be driven out. They could not be absorbed either. They remained a separate entity and ruled as foreigners in this land.

whatever we believed in, the Muslim was wholly hostile to it. If we worship in the temple, he would desecrate it. If we carry on bhajans and car festivals, that would irritate him. If we worship cow, he would like to eat it. If we glorify woman as a symbol of sacred motherhood, he would like to molest her. He was tooth and nail opposed to our way of life in all aspects-religious, cultural, social, etc. He had imbibed that hostility to the very core.

But, to tell the pugnacious fighting Mussalman that his forefathers were Hindus, that he should return to the Hindu fold as a self-respecting man, that he should give up his aggressive mode of the Moghul days and wake up to the realities of the present century and merge in the national current of life – to tell all this required an unshakable conviction in the supremacy of truth and indomitable courage to face the hard realities of the situation. But, unfortunately, both these qualities, uncompromising love for truth and fearlessness, are really wanting in many of the leading personalities of these days.

Those who declared ‘No swaraj without Hindu-Muslim unity’ have thus perpetrated the greatest treason on our society. They have committed the most heinous sin of killing the life-spirit of a great and ancient people.

Well, did these leaders succeed, though at such a terrible cost, in realising their dream of Hindu-Muslim unity? No! The more our leaders tried to appease the Muslims, the more their separatist and aggressive appetite was whetted.

Finally their price rose to such a pitch that they not only got two big slices of this land where they live today as complete masters with plans to conquer the rest of our country, but also continue to remain here in sufficient numbers to act as potential fifth-column.

It was this ‘humbug’ type of nationalism that was attempted to be vivified. It is like attempting to create a novel animal by joining the head of a monkey and the legs of a bullock to the main body of an elephant! It can only result in a hideous corpse.

We must be able to see through the game and revert to the truth of our nationalism as an ancient fact and the Hindus being the national society of Bharat.
