Sh. Narinder Kohliji - Speaking

Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh came into existence on this auspicious occasion 86
years ago. The founder of the RSS Dr. Keshav Baliram Hedgewar was a born patriot. He had
been an active and committed worker associated with every struggle, movement and
campaign aimed at awakening and enlightening the people for the independence of the
country and betterment of social life. After a deep introspection, cogitation and discussion
with the eminent personalities of the above mentioned endeavours, he reached a common
conclusion. Working honestly and selflessly in the interest of the country, however, pursuing
different ideologies and methodologies, all such people then and now have been echoing the
same ideas in their own words. An objective analysis of the contemporary situation in our
country and the world once again lead us to the same conclusion. Since the last Vijayadashmi
festival (2010), till now, the changed circumstances brought about by the passage of time
have only increased our concerns and they demand from us a sustained endeavour in a
particular direction. The scenario in the world and our country and its effect experienced in
our day to day life has created a disturbance in all minds .
The powerful countries of the world mount all kinds of efforts to exploit the
international situation to establish their hegemony. This explains the current unhealthy
competition between US and China for establishing their superiority. On the pretext of its
war on terror the active intervention of America have reached our neighbouring Pakistan .
Corruption of the ruling class that has caused a wave of mass-anger and brought in the
change of regimes in some of the countries of the middle east is also seen in some corners as
a promotion of the interests of America and other western countries. Our neighbour in the
north, communist China, is also boosting its strength to establish dominance in the world.
Naturally, we can not remain untouched by the turmoil created by this power game. We have
always regarded the whole world as one family and we seek an intimate friendship with it
rather than dominance. The other countries of the world acknowledge this through their
experience of exemplary behavior of Bharateeya’s living abroad. That is why they have trust
in us and they welcome us whole heartedly. In tune with this world view of ours and keeping
intact our sovereignty, dignity and security, we should take initiative to transform the current
disturbed situation of the world into one of mutual trust and cooperation.
We have deep cultural relationship with our neighbouring countries particularly in
south-east Asia. Even today this relationship is remembered with gratitude, joy and
happiness. We are bound by common economic interests. There is general consensus in these
countries that Bharat should lead them and stand by them through thick and thin. We should
strengthen our economic, diplomatic and cultural ties with all these countries. We will have
to be more focussed in our efforts in making the neighbouring Nepal stable and more
favourable to us. We should also initiate efforts to end the miseries of Sri Lankan Tamilians
and create a situation where by they will be able to contribute to Sri Lankan society and
national life on equal footing with their civil rights and status intact. We have to tighten our
security on the Bangladesh border, prevent the border being porous and stop infiltration and
illegal trafficking of arms, cattle, fake currency and drugs, while we also have to see that the
atmosphere in Bangladesh turns favourable to us. Even though Tibet is still occupied by
China, we have to help Tibetans living there as well as those living in Bharat and other parts
of the world to vent proper voice to their emotions and protect their human-rights, faith and
traditions in their homeland as well as in the world.

Occasionally in its own interest China seems to be taking initiative to strengthen its
economic, diplomatic and cultural ties with Bharat. But recent events show its intention to
expand its influence in the Asian continent and also in Bharat even by using its war strength.
Intrusion by the Chinese soldiers in Leh and Ladakh, their entering into the Bharateeya
territory and demolishing our bunkers, threatening Bharateeya ships in the South China sea in
utter violation of the principle of the international waters and preventing Bharat from oil
exploration are the recent examples of the same. China has objection when we improve our
relations with countries like Vietnam. It is published in the media that as per our intelligence
agency sources China has forged links with terrorists in the north east of Bharat. It is true that
we want neither enmity nor war against anyone, but we must remember that we have once in
1962 been a victim of our own dreaming mentality, innocence and also the shrewd and crafty
war tactics of China. Still maintaining our cultural ties that we have been enjoying with China
since the time of Budhha and also our current economic relations, we nevertheless have to
remain vigilant against China, build necessary infrastructure in place on the border, and not
allow our military preparedness and vigilance to wither away. There is need to influence
international diplomatic dialogues more effectively to garner global support for ourselves in
any possible eventuality.
Hand in hand with Pakistan, whose military establishment has an avowed enmity with
us, China has entered into Gilgit-Baltistan in the northern area of Jammu Kashmir. We have
not grasped the geopolitical importance of this northern part of Bharat wherein meet the
boundaries of six nations and have allowed them to be victimised by the aggressors.
Terrorists are instigated to infiltrate and disturbance is created in Jammu and Kashmir at the
behest of Pakistan. The truth is that even the constitution of Pakistan and the highest Court of
the POK don’t regard Jammu and Kashmir as a part of Pakistan. Pakistan, even then is
engaged in creating trouble in Jammu & Kashmir. Why despite all this, our Central
Government and the interlocutors appointed by them insist time and again that Kashmir is a
political problem? Kashmir is not merely an internal political problem. It is a problem created
by aggression and terrorism instigated from across the border and fanatic fundamentalism, as
also by our weak-kneed and indecisive policy. The Centre and the State Governments should
pursue a policy of strengthening the voice of patriotic elements opposed to this aggression.
The Hindu refugees of 1947-48 should be speedily settled there with full citizenship rights
and the displaced Kashmiri Hindus should be able to settle back in their birthland and the
land or their ancestors with full preparedness and with impeccable guarantee of their safety so
that they can live there as Hindus and Bharateeyas. There should be a sensitive and
transparent administration in the State of Jammu and Kashmir which should end
discrimination against various castes and classes in the population as well as against regions
of Jammu and Ladakh. Article 370 that hinders integration of Jammu and Kashmir with
Bharat needs to be abolished. The mentality that harps on the pre-1953 situation and seeks
separation of Kashmir from Bharat must be abandoned. The central government and its
interlocutors should change their mindset. The pre-1953 situation cannot be the basis of the
solution to the Kashmir problem. The unanimous resolution passed by Parliament in 1994
that POK be restored to Bharat should alone be the basis of the tone of discourse on the
Kashmir problem.

It has now become imperative for our political class to appreciate the pains of the
people of the north-east. They should make their understanding and knowledge deeper and
thorough as to how to solve problems of those people. Completely deprived of the mass base
and almost defunct terrorist groups are being given a fresh lease of life by the Centre and the
State governments by initiating dialogues with them. Even a 60 (sixty) days blockade of
Manipur some years ago did not show any impact on the government, nor is there any
willingness visible at present to take action against the uncontrolled terrorism there. The
Riyang tribe displaced from Mizoram to Tripura is facing its total extinction; but the
administration is not even remotely aware of it. Without trying to understand or even listen to
the problems of the people in the region and in spite of the problems arising out of a large
scale infiltration into Assam, the Bharat Government seems to be over-willing in its talks
with Bangladesh to part away Bharateeya Territory. Our incomplete and superficial
understanding and awareness and our indifference to the difficulties of the people, our lack of
a clear-cut national perspective and our mentality to exploit anything and everything for
political gains have compounded the problems of the north-east as is the case with Jammu
and Kashmir.
It is perhaps this very lack of perspective, study and sensitiveness that our Home
Minister has recently come out with a strange statement. He has stated that out of the various
terrorist activities in the country the Maoists or the Naxalites are the more dangerous outfits.
Does it mean that there are less or more dangerous forms of terrorism? Then if it is so, how
could the Central Government appoint a person on a Committee of the Planning Commission,
when a State Government suspects that person of having links with this “more dangerous”
terrorist outfit?
There are people who shirk their responsibility of strongly fighting problems that
threaten the unity and integrity of the country and instead foist the responsibility on the State
governments. These people should desist from spreading misinformation and gloom amongst
the people. Because of such thinking, the demand for quashing the death sentence of the
killers of our former Prime Minister is getting political support. The Jammu and Kashmir
assembly allowed the tabling of the resolution for quashing the death sentence given to Afzal
Guru, guilty of attack on Parliament, while it did not even allow a discussion and support on
a resolution passed unanimously by Parliament in 1994. Political activities in our country do
not seem to be inspired by a clear national perspective.
The lack of clear vision and perspective is also reflected in the economic policies and
activities of the country. The failures and shortcomings of the economic model of the West
have been abundantly exposed in the world. Therefore, we will have to look for a distinct
developmental model which should be based on our own unique world view fulfilling the
requirements of our people and promoting prosperity and culture hand in hand and also
strengthening the pace of progress with our identity. Over the last six decades we have simply
been avoiding to achieve this and instead are imitating the West. The common people are
made to pay for this through nose. While the prices of goods are sky-rocketing, the salaries of
the members of the parliament and the assemblies are being hiked frequently. The poor are
getting poorer and we are still indulged in defining the criteria of poverty. Moreover, instead
of protecting agricultural, grazing and forest lands for the future, keeping pace with the

growing population, we are forcibly acquiring agricultural land for creating Special
Economic Zones (SEZ) and opening fire on the farmers who are opposing such acquisitions.
Instead of tapping our own abundant resources such as geothermal, bio and thorium based
sources of energy, we are hell bent on acquiring on costly terms and conditions the expensive
nuclear energy which the west itself is jettisoning.
Instead of providing the retail traders with necessary training and ability to compete
with the organised trade houses, foreign investment is being wooed in the field of retail trade.
How can a common man with limited income for his family afford to provide expensive
education to his children? He is totally lost in distress. Common man sees with growing
concern the government’s reluctance in getting back the black money stashed away in foreign
banks and also the deliberate laxity and delay in initiating legal proceedings against these
account holders.
The pent up rage of the common man created out of the above frustrating conditions
exploded into massive support for the recent anti corruption movements. Return of the black
money from the foreign banks, effective legislation against corruption and its implementation
without any outside interference and influence, and bringing the Prime Minister and other top
functionaries within the ambit of the anti graft law – all these have become issues that give
vent to the feelings of the people. The Government had to cave in to the popular pressure but
total success is still not in sight. In the cases of corruption some people are in the dock as
scape-goats, but known and unknown bigwigs are still at large. All the big and small
organizations participating in the anticorruption movement need to sink their differences and
unite to achieve long term success. The issue of corruption is not concerned merely with the
theft of wealth. Investigations about major corruption cases have revealed that foreign secret
agencies or criminal groups have been managing the black money of these corrupts. Thus it
becomes a serious issue involving integrity, sovereignity and also the security of the country.
Hence we should stay clear from power groups which have dubious background and are
impatiently credit hungry. Rejection of symbols of patriotism such as “VANDEMATARAM”
and ‘BHARATMATA” and gimmies to gain cheap popularity can never be tolerated in any
national movement. It is necessary to keep away from those tendencies and forces existing in
the so-called minorities that pander to the narrow, fanatic and separatist ideas. We will have
to take care that, persons and tendencies that maintain total transparency especially in the
matter of money and resources, are on board. Otherwise, taking advantage of these
weaknesses, the elements that oppose the movement can create an atmosphere of distrust and
calumny. This may give boost to the elements involved in creating problems for the security
of our country.
The RSS volunteers are already active in all movements against corruption without
craving for their own position and credit. But everyone should keep it in mind that the law
alone cannot solve the problem of corruption. We will have to bring about fundamental
changes in the very system that breeds in corruption. For this the administrative system will
have to be made more transparent and responsive to the needs of the common people. We
will have to create an environment conducive for developing cultural values. We will have to
bring electoral reform to bring in the end of crime and money power. Only then we can
ensure true representation of the people. The tax system will have to be more rational. We
will have to end the commercialization of our educational system and make it more
conducive for cultural upbringing. In this way we will need to bring in a total and
comprehensive change in reform and keep up the pressure for its implementation.

The most important thing is that we will have to inculcate good values in society such
as the sense of social responsibility, pure character and social services and altruism. Total
eradication of corruption from society is next to impossible without setting examples through
our good and moral conduct that creates an environment for such values in every village and
hamlet. The RSS is working with full concentration on this fundamentally important issue.
However, the way the top leaders in the Government seem to be inclined to see things
during the movement causes surprise and concern. The use of brute force, deception and
arrogance by a foreign government against the innocent people agitating for their legitimate
demands could be expected but using such tactics by a government in an independent country
is never acceptable. Our political environment has become predominantly power-centric.
Concomitantly, the national interests have receded in the background and there prevails
insensitivity against the common people. Though not excusable, its reasons are not difficult
to understand. But the new happenings have given rise to question whether the future of our
country is safe or otherwise in the hands of such political forces..
The National Integration Council at its recent meeting held on September 10, 2011
discussed the proposed Communal and Targeted Violence Bill. Majority of its members have
categorically and strongly opposed the proposed bill. Honourable Prime Minister promised to
put forward a revised draft for discussion, but even a cursory look at the original draft shows
that it is a deceitful action of destructive mind and distorted ideology aimed at destroying the
social harmony thus violating the spirit of our constitution. Moreover, one does not know the
constitutional position and power of the so called National Advisory Council that has
prepared the said draft bill. Curiously, the chairperson of that NAC is also the President of the
leading party of the ruling coalition, the United Progressive Alliance (UPA). One may ask as
to how such a draft bill that can cause permanent civil disturbances and strife in the country
could be prepared under her leadership. Is it true that some of the members of the NAC are
under a cloud and their integrity has been questioned by the highest court of the land?
Whether our country is run by our Cabinet or by such elements with a distorted and antinational
mind? Are we really independent or living in a hidden subjugation? The proposed
legislation seeks to destroy the federal structure and contemptuously disregards the rights of
the States giving absolute power to the Centre to dismiss a State Government on mere
allegation. The Bill is absolutely anti democracy as it provides wide ranging powers to a
body that will leave everyone, including the chief minister of the state to the level of an
ordinary employee cowering under fear of suspension and behave like puppets. This goes
against the basic principles of public administration. Is it not an attempt to clamp a
permanent emergency on the people of the country through a backdoor? As per this
legislation a mere allegation leveled against a person is enough to implicate him, his
organisation or party or government. Is it not unethical to the concept of justice? There is
mention of imaginary crimes such as “mental torture”. Does this anti-justice, anti-democracy
and anti-constitutional legislation which is a product of perverted minds, merit any
consideration at all? The proposed legislation seeks to destroy our sense of national unity and
divide the citizens of the country. This legislation represents a total negation of our national
Parliament and the Government elected by the people of Bharat with the hope that they
will provide protection and promote love and justice for all should not allow this draft bill
even for discussion in any form; and should summarily reject it. The security and justice for
the so- called minorities can be guaranteed by law combined with the goodwill prevailing in
society. Any attempt to bring in this piece of legislation that destroys social harmony even in

any other form would meet with stout opposition and disapproval from the people, because
though the form may change, the very draft of the Bill had made it clear that there was an
anti-national conspiratorial mentality working at the back of these efforts.
A politics bereft of will power and clear and fearless national perspective becomes a
collection of shaky policies, cowardice, shirking of responsibilities and selfish considerations
creating an atmosphere of mistrust and frustration. Our society has to take the onus of
marching ahead on its glorious path by checking aggressive and dangerous tendencies
threatening us on one hand and creating power and unity in all endeavours of our national life
on the other. The ever victorious benevolent divine power in form of Durga arose out of
collective endeavours of the gods and defeated the demons. This is the ancient history of
today’s auspicious festival. The existing circumstances are once again demanding of us the
same collective endeavour with will to be victorious and it is the native Hindu society that
will have to meet this demand.
Saint Gyaneshwar has prayed in the concluding chapter of “The Gyaneshwari” that
good heartedness, wisdom of good actions, feelings of mutual friendship amongst all,
everybody pursuing life based on Dharma and fulfillment of everybody’s wishes should
prevail. He has sought blessings for the evolution of a society that teams with groups of
people who are God-fearing, gentle, virtuous and dedicated to the welfare of all. This was the
conclusion of all great men of creative minds in modern Bharat to transform their dream of a
Bharat as independent, harmonious, powerful and vishwa-guru into a reality. This again is the
fianl verdict of all those selfless and honest people who are working to promote the interests
of our country.
People who are not even slightly affected by selfishness, who are immensely sensible
and devoted to society and who without fear and equivocation keep proclaiming the identity
of our ancient nation, its all-unifying culture and glory and devotion towards its embodiment
in Bharat Mata - undivided and overflowing with consciousness. Living examples of such
persons will have to rise in every village and locality. It is through the nationwide collective
selfless and dedicated efforts of these good people that our country could feel incandescent
with wellbeing and good fortune.
The RSS is an effort to realise and establish this universally acceptable thought and
conduct by organising the Hindus and was founded in a miniscule form 86 years ago. Today
it stands before you in its vastly expanded form as an invaluable means of mobilising the
well-meaning people. Let us become a part of it. Let us create an atmosphere of goodwill,
fearlessness and patriotism in society. All the RSS volunteers should realise this
responsibility and apply themselves to this work with full vigour and enthusiasm.
Let us discharge our duty in keeping our society united and harmonious with full
confidence that our truthful path will prevail. Our victory is inevitable.
With heart filled with devotion to Rashtra
If the country stands as one
Overcoming all its problems
The Rashtra will stand victorious.

In the words of Rashtrasant Shri Tukadoji Maharaj
Let us become the yogis of Hind
To look after the interests of Bharat
Pick up the flag of Dharma
And take Bharat forward
This is the fulfillment of our Janma
This is the reason of our Moksha
This is the path to Swarga
AND This very is the arising of Bharat

Vagish Issar (Ivsk)
