RSS can offer credible alternative to transform India: BJP MP
Propaganda against the RSS has penetrated from top to bottom and scholarly narration can remove the ambiguities in history about the organization, which can offer a credible alternative to transform India, claims BJP-MP Rakesh Sinha.
"Intentionally, historicities of some events aren't examined prudently by Indian intellectuals. Therefore, candid and scholarly narration on RSS will remove the ambiguities in the history' of India," he says.
RSS has suffered from fabrications in narrations of events: Sinha
According to Sinha, fabrications and distortions are pre-woven in the narration of events and the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) has suffered from this bias.
"Therefore, the commitment to truth in writing the history needs earnest defending for the sake of dispelling myth. It is about time to be geared up for this tryst with truth about RSS," he argues.
Sinha has written book on his articles related to RSS
Sinha, an academic at Delhi University, has written a book 'Understanding RSS' in which he seeks to dispel propaganda "intentionally weaved by pseudo-intellectuals about RSS for decades".
The book is a collection of his articles related to the RSS and in Sinha's words "an attempt to succinctly put forth the empirical-evidences which puncture the myth interlaced by Congress and Left intellectuals to discredit RSS."
Sinha says RSS's work has no negative ramifications on nation
Sinha says in over nine decades, the RSS has fortified its ground to define the 'Idea of India'.
"Its prolonged and sincere engagement with cultural nationalism is certainly not exclusionary and it has no negative ramification on the nation and her destiny. Therefore, argumentum and absurdum on RSS by intellectuals need to be reappraised," he writes in the book, brought out by Har-Anand Publications.
Sinha reiterates RSS Chief Bhagwat's statement over judging the organization
However, Sinha says, for the ideologically unattached intelligentsia, the observation by RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat that the organization should be judged dispassionately through personal experiences rather than mere derivative information is very pertinent.
"The post-colonial Marxist and Nehruvian social scientists and intellectuals consciously, calculatingly and tactically overlooked empiricism and construed false narrative on the RSS which led a reactionary and regressive discourse," Sinha claims.
