Nathuram Godse and Karunanidhi

Nathuram Godse and Karunanidhi

VEDAPRAKASH

Godse and Dravidian leaders: Very often the DK-protagonists[1], Communist and the like just blurt out that that RSS killed Gandhi[2]. We do not know why they remember very often or like Godse (1910-1949) like this.  Now, Karunananidhi cries that “the killers of Gandhi should not come to power” right inside the TN Legislative Assembly. “The sinners of Gandhi-killers should not come to power again. Again one Ayodhya, one Rama Ratha, journey of Advani and such things happen, the country would become a jungle[3]. “Another Ayodhya or Rathyatra by BJP’s L.K. Advani would turn the nation into a grave,” he said. UPA allies should ensure that the “followers of killers of Mahatma Gandhi, the Father of the Nation, should not rule the land,” he told the Tamil Nadu assembly[4]. This way he responds to the Communists and others who raised the issue of price rise! Why this crack-pot again and again target Rama?

DMK and BJP: We have to deal with all the points raised by the CM in the Assembly, as every citizen has a right to discuss about what C. M talks officially in the assembly. How he was hobnobbing with the Gandhi-killers for five years (1996-2001) without shame, disgrace or mortification? At that time what he was doing? Even T. R. Balu was hobnobbing with BJP-RSS volunteers for his Central Madras Constituency election.

His anti-BJP tirade could not have been made right inside the Assembly, as it is not Panagal Park or Mayilai Mangollai to talk in Tamil anything he likes.

When Murasoli Maran was proposed as Minister, nationalists raised questions, as he had been anti-nationalist and proven ideologist of Tamil separatist movement[5]. Was was writing in “Murasoli”, the DMLK mouth-piece arguing for “Dravidasthan”. He also recorded in his introduction that Karinanidhi encouraged him to write and accommodated in the paper. However, he assured BJP leaders that hereafter, he would not talk anything against nation, as he would become a “Central Minister”!

The same thing happened with PMK and MDMK. The PMK again surrendered and agreed to bury all its ideologies of separatism, self-determination and LTTE support. In fact, it had carefully withdrawn all its anti-Indian books, booklets and propaganda literature.

As for as MDMK was concerned, Vaiko never minced his words for his sympathy and ideological support to and for LTTE or trans-territorial Tamil movement[6]. So he decided to keep outside the ministry and support.

Dravidian leaders sand Mahathma Gandhi: The Dravidian leaders of all sorts had / have been totally against Mahathma Gandhi. They had scant regard for him and talked and wrote disrespecting him in their propagandist literature and papers[7]. EVR, Annadurai and Karunanidhi have been very much against Mahathma Gandhi and they always used to talk in a very scurrilous, derogatory and debasing manner with sarcasm and ridicule. The way in which they talk in Tamil could be understood the real inner meaning only by the Tamil-knowing people. Just remember how Karunanidhi asked about Rama with his arrogant sarcasm, malicious derision and blasphemous mock with his body language. Thousand times more derogatory attitude would be there when they talked during 1940s. They used to address him as “Gandhiyar”, “Parppana adigoli”, “Varnashrama vithagar” and such words and expressions in a scornful way.

Karunanidhi’s official involvements in murders and assassination, acquitted later: People generally forget the recent past. In how many murders and assassination, Karunanidhi was officially involved?

•     In fact, people, particularly, the non-Tanilnadu citizens know very well that he was one of the accused in the Indira Gandhi attempted murder along with 6 others in 1969. Indira Gandhi gave relief to him by withdrawing the case.

•     He has been also under the suspicion of assassination Rajiv Gandhi, as he was / is having links with LTTE. Even when Priyanka met Nalini one of the offenders and undergoing punishment in Vellore jail, she was asking as to any political parties were involved in the assassination plot of his father?

•     He was also involved in the cold-blooded murder of the Tiruchendur temple priest and people might have forgotten the Justice Paul Commission Report. The report itself was made disappeared ad the Judge made kept quite.

 

Karunanidhi and Commissions: Karunanidhi has always been a man of two faces, many tongues. He keeps harping publicly that he is willing to face any inquiry against him. But when an inquiry commission is instituted, he always runs away from it. He tried to run away from the Justice Sarkaria Commission constituted to inquire into corruption charges against him. Another example is the case where the Justice Paul Commission Report was stolen. A case was registered and in this connection in the Madras High Court his attitude of non-cooperation was heard by Justice Singaravelu. Karunanidhi, the fourth accused in the case, refused to cooperate. In fact, the learned Judge observed that “Even if the 4th accused is brought to Court through some coercive steps, it would be futile and the proposed remedy would only aggravate the malady…

How sins are different? But, now right inside the TN Assembly, he talks about the so-called killers of Gandhi. Nathuram Godse was already hanged for killing the Gandhi. But can he absolve from the above sins? Though, with his power and manipulations, he has covered up, how the facts could be erased from the minds of TN people or Indians?

Karunanidhi and Terrorism[8]: In 1976, Gandhi’s federal government dismissed Karunanidhi’s government on the charges of  corruption. A year later, MGR won local elections and sent Karunanidhi into political wilderness until MGR’s death in 1987.

After a year of direct rule by the federal government, the DMK party regained power in Tamil Nadu in 1989. Two years later the federal government dismissed Karunanidhi for a second time, accusing him of not doing enough to crack down on the Tamil Tigers in his state.

Further, the Jain Commission said, the LTTE was getting its supplies, including arms, ammunition, explosives, fuel and other essential items from Tamil Nadu to continue its fight against the IPKF that too with the support of the DMK Government, State Administration and connivance of the law enforcement agencies.

The report said that soon after the DMK Government took over the reins of power in Tamil Nadu, “the LTTE slowly began to consolidate itself in the State and their clandestine activities, heretofore dormant, became more and more pronounced. All the activities of the LTTE at this stage towards resource mobilisation, propaganda and treatment of their wounded cadres, had taken an anti-national dimension.”

The Commission noted the visit of the then DMK MP, Mr. V. Gopalaswamy, MP (DMK) to Northern Sri Lanka and his reported meeting with Prabhakaran between February 8, 1989, and March 3, 1989.

“This visit by Mr. V. Gopalaswamy, and the manner in which this entire episode was dealt with by the DMK party sent clear signals to the pro-LTTE anti-IPKF elements in the State as well as LTTE itself that the newly-elected Government would not resort to any drastic action against such elements; on the other hand, the impression that the entire episode created was that pro-LTTE gestures, even if they were illegal, would be tolerated by the Government.”

The Commission’s report said the then Prime Minister, Rajiv Gandhi, was keen that “some satisfactory solution be arrived at with the LTTE so that the Indo-Sri Lankan Accord could be implemented in letter and spirit. He discussed this concern with Mr. Karunanidhi and sought his assistance.” After Mr. V. P. Singh became the Prime Minister on December 2, 1989, it was spelt out that if no solution came, India would no longer give any military or monetary help to any of the groups, nor allow its mainland to be used for militant activities. “The LTTE remained adamant during their parleys with Mr. Karunanidhi, and continued to demand the formation of Eelam,” the report noted.

The interim report said that credible reports existed of “active connivance of some DMK leaders with the LTTE. The LTTE was in continuous interaction with Mr. Karunanidhi, primarily to ensure that their activities continue unhindered even after the Padmanabha killing.” The ATR “noted” the observation of the Commission that there was a nexus between the LTTE and the ULFA and their combined endeavours in Tamil Nadu had also been confirmed.

The Commission’s report ponders over questions of aid to the LTTE in the killing of Rajiv Gandhi. “Were there other forces behind the LTTE involved in the conspiracy for the assassination of Rajiv Gandhi? These are questions requiring a deep and anxious probe,” the report said referring to conspiratorial aspects which were yet to be dealt with by the one-man probe panel.

Soon after the DMK Government took over the reins of power in Tamil Nadu, the LTTE slowly began to consolidate itself in the State. During 1990, a growing nexus between the LTTE and DMK and its repercussions on the local law enforcement machinery were discernible. The assassination of EPRLF leader K. Padmanabha and others at Madras on 19th June 1990 was a shocking reminder of the impunity with which the LTTE could operate in India.

The case assumes significance due to the fact that striking similarities were found in the Padmanabha assassination and the case relating to the assassination of Shri Rajiv Gandhi. It can, therefore, be safely concluded that the growing connivance of the DMK Government with the LTTE having been brought to the knowledge of the National Front Government, effective steps were not taken by the Central government to check it, whatever may be the reasons.

From the evaluation of the material, the conclusion is irresistible that there was tacit support to the LTTE by Shri M. Karunanidhi and his Government and law enforcement agencies.

The charges, put together as long quotations from the report, include: that the DMK provided a safe sanctuary for the LTTE cadres and activists, it gave advice, active assistance, finance and security cover to LTTE operations, and that the assassination of Rajiv Gandhi would not have been possible the way it happened without the nexus between the LTTE and the DMK, a nexus which started a chain of events which led to the survival and growth of the LTTE in Tamil Nadu long after the Government of India’s attitude had changed towards the LTTE and hostilities had broken out between the Indian Peace Keeping Force and the LTTE in Sri Lanka, and finally that the DMK leader and Tamil Nadu Chief Minister, Mr. M. Karunanidhi, had “himself been instrumental in ensuring that things went smoothly for LTTE” and that the cadres of the LTTE had little fear of the security agencies in India “thanks to the patronage of the DMK Government”.

Mahathma Gandhi and Karunanidhi: Karunanidhi’s Tamil usage would very caustic, sarcastic and hurting with double-meaning. That too when he talks with vengeance, hatred and attacking mood, his Tamil would be very very sharp and killing. He has been capable of converting a good word into a bad or even vulgar word in Tamil connotation. He never cared for Gandhi or respected Gandhi. He even does not want to call his name “Mahathma Gandhi” and changed his name as “Uttamar Gandhi” when the name of Nungambakkam Road was changed to Mahathma Gandhi Road , he ordered that it should be ” Uttamar Gandhi Road “. Such has been his love, respect and what not for “the Father of Nation”, but now he talks about the killers of Gandhi!

Dr. Subramanian Swamy[9], President of the Janata Party has said: ?It is abominable for Priyaranjan Das Munshi to compare Karunanidhi with the Father of Our Nation. Karunanidhi is the anti-thesis?in letter and spirit?of Mahatma Gandhi. Karunanidhi was a primary accused in the murder case relating to the beastly attack on Smt. Indira Gandhi during her visit to Madurai in 1979. Moreover following the indictment by the Jain Commission, the Multi-disciplinary Investigation Team and the CBI initially viewed Karunanidhi as a prime suspect in the murder of Rajiv Gandhi?.

Killing of many Tamil leaders and the nexus: The LTTE assassinators have been the DK-sympathisers, they have been maintaining close relations with the DK-DMK-PMK-MDMK and other anti-Indian political parties (all TNLA, TNMK, and such other splinter groups). So we can always say like Karunanidhi, the killers of so-many Tamil leaders have been the DK-DMK-PMK-MDMK and other anti-Indian political parties. In fact, Tamils themselves know very well how the liberal, democratic and reasonable Tamil leaders were hunted and killed mercilessly.

EVR’s Hindutwa or Hindutwa of Periyar: RSS’s comparison of ideologies of Periyar and Hindutwa!

May 19, 2018

EVR’s Hindutwa or Hindutwa of Periyar: RSS’s comparison of ideologies of Periyar and Hindutwa!

RSS periyar, DC 17-05-2018
Much in common between Periyar’s Dravidian principles and the RSS ideology[1]: RSS joint general secretary Dr Manmohan Vaidya on 17-05-2018, Thursday expressed confidence that the Sangh would able to strengthen its base in Tamil Nadu, explaining that there is much in common between Periyar’s Dravidian principles and the RSS ideology, as both advocate equality in society without caste and communal differences and class distinctions. “Periyar had campaigned for a society where everyone, particularly the poor and the backward castes, have equal rights and could live in dignity. He had worked tirelessly towards creating a casteless society. RSS too advocates and practises the same ideology”, Dr Vaidya said at a select media interaction here. He admitted that the RSS work in Tamil Nadu could be a bit more divisions created by vested interests”. However, the Sangh would emerge successful in winning the Tamil hearts as the “great unifying factor is spirituality, that’s just the way of Indian living over centuries, marked by kindness, sharing, mutual respect and tolerance, and such other virtues”, Dr Vaidya said[2].

RSS periyar, DC cutting, 17-05-2018
Muslims and Christians in RSS[3]: Elaborating on the RSS ideology, he said the Sangh has several Muslim and Christian members attending the shakhas, which number over 57,000 spread across the country. There is neither religious preaching nor any political discourse at the RSS meetings and shakhas. “We have Dr C I Issac, a renowned history professor, as an important member in Kerala. He has written several well-researched articles on being Hindu”, he said. “A Dravidian leader, who presided over a RSS conference in Tamil Nadu a couple of years ago, had said in his speech that he had actually come to close down the shakhas because he was under the impression that extreme Hinduism was being preached there, but after seeing that the shakhas practiced no class/caste/religious distinctions, he was going back happy that his mind has changed and he now knew the truth about RSS”, Dr Vaidya said. Dr Vaidya is here to be part of the faculty at the RSS summer camp, being attended by over 300 members from all the southern states. There are 80 such camps happening across the country. “There are lectures on spiritualism, clean living, social issues and ways of bringing about positive change among the people, apart from physical training”, explained the RSS leader[4].

Jaya, Maya, Mamta

Mayawati and Jayalalita: Evidently, either he does know the “Dravidian ideology” or the TN BJP or Hindutwa ideologists have not briefed him properly about the Dravidian ideology and polity. It is definitely incorrect to compare or equate Periarist ideology with that of RSS ideology, as both would not match with each other on many accounts. Incidentally, BJP suffered heavily because of two Lady-politicians Mayawati and Jayalalita. During 1995, Mayawati and BJP experimented coalition rule in UP, but failed, because of the inherent fissures. Though, Periyar was an anti-Hindutwa voice, the Dravidian parties DMK, AIADMK, MDMK were trying to align and aligned with BJP for political compulsion, exploitation and profiteering. The BJP could not forget about the fall because of one vote and it was approaching cautiously with Jayalalita. Now, AIADMK has been with BJP and hence, BJP tries to get benefit out of political confusion prevailing in Tamilnadu, after the demise of Jayalalita.

Hindutwa Periyar book- propsed

“Periyar’s Hindutwa” as perceived in 2004: Ravikumar asked, “In such a context, intellectuals who write about Tamil society and polity in the English-language media continue to posit Periyar as an important anti-Hindutva voice. If that were to be true, how/ and why is it that we see Dravidian parties like the DMK, AIADMK and MDMK vying with each other to be seen in the company of BJP? Also, why is it that these Dravidian formations brazenly attempt to implement an agenda over which even states ruled by the BJP would hesitate?,” and then, went on to reply. In the context of “Paraiyar / SC / now mentioned as Dalits”, he pointed out[5], “Periyar was someone who was jealous of the constitutional safeguards that were given to the dalits. Having repeatedly spoken of dalits as a people who don’t have a history, who don’t have a political movement, who don’t have leaders, Periyar even made them believe this. Having used the dalits to serve his political ends, he asked them: ‘Asking the government for jobs, education, duties, huts and housing; and seeking from the Mirasdars two extra measures of paddy will not help in anyway…….Of what use are you to us?”. Periyar worked solely for the cause of the non-brahmin, non-religious minority, non-dalit backward and upper castes. He deployed the concept of ‘majority’ for this purpose. There’s only one difference between the majoritarianism that the hindutvawadis propound and that of Periyar’s: that is, over the exclusion of brahmins from this majority[6]. Then, he concluded[7], “Dravidian parties allying with the BJP even as they praise Periyar is no different from Mayawati’s praise for Periyar even as she rules in alliance with the BJP. There’s always a scope in Periyar’s ideas for such possibilities. This is Periyarism”.  Perhaps, “Hindutwa” expression used in 2004 shows the change taken place[8].

“Karnataka” would be repeated in Tamilnadu?: Whatever the nuances are appreciated, filtering out the differences, the anti-Hindu, anti-Sanskrit, anti-Brahmin, anti-dalit, pro-mohammedan, and above all anti-Indian ideology of EVR changed to Periyar could not be coped up with the RSS idelogists. In fact, the hard-core Periyarist, anti-Hindu Dravidian cadre and pro-Tamil ideologists would not accept such proposition, on any account. Therefore, the Hindutwavadis / RSS / BJPwalas should understand the Dravidian mindset. How Jayalalita was treated by them till death and even after hould bge an eye-opener, just because, she is a Brahmin, Pappathi, Aryan and so on. The Hindutava ideologists could get along with AIADMK but not with DMK and therefore, thinking about “Periarists” is redundant, futile and worthless. Though, BJP did not pose as “anti-dalit,” its inaffective campaign in Karnataka produced negative impact, where SC and ST constitute 19%. Even Hindutwa failed with Lingayats and Vokkaligas, as Congress played the “communal card” effectively, spending crores.  In Tamilnadu, the higher caste Mudaliyars, Chettiyar, Pillais and others vote for DMK traditionally, because of their affiliations since 1960s.  Muslims and Christians do not vote for BJP or BJP aligned AIADMK faithfully. In that manner, Congress plays a trick of “Karnataka” in Tamilnadu, by spitting the votes of AIADMK. The background of Kamal Hassan and Rajinikantha, though not clear, their politics affect only the interests of BJP alliance in Tamilnadu. They can better concentrate to analyze critically as to why RSS could not grow ideologically influencing others.

Periyar on Paraichi- jacket

How to counter Dravidian ideology?: Dravidian Ideology has been powerful, attractive and alive in the minds of crores of people of Tamil speaking people. Many times, majority of them could be brought together or influenced with emotional appeal or threat that “Tamils are targeted, Tamil is danger, Tamil is suppressed by Hindi, Hindi is imposed to deprive out cultural rights” and so on. Though, they have been becoming pious, religious and believing, not because of “Hindu binding,” but, their traditional Tamil rituals, rites and ceremonies. Their caste-politics has been so dominating to capture, keep and enjoy power with economic superiority.  Even, today, the TN-BJP has been divided on dravidian fault-lines which could not be cemented with “Hindutwa” as could be clearly observed in the followers, meetings held and social media. Their nuances of “inner-outer” dramatic twists, diplomatic duplicities and dogmatic digs are not learned. First of all, no effective speaker has been produced and the borrowed ones are always drifted to other parties or started their own splinter groups.

Periyar breaking vinayaka idols

  1. In TN-BJP, the leaders have been operating on caste based groupings and followers impacting others.
  2. The second rung leaders have been divided among themselves, depending upon the power, wealth and other factors.
  3. The third level leaders have been divided among themselves as usual division, zone, group, RSS-non-RSS, and such factors.
  4. These three divisions have been further divided based on egoist groups, envying enemies, caste and other factors.
  5. Most of them have been appearing and active only when NDA is in power.
  6. Besides, social media struggle and group rivalry exhibited, there have been flooding of anonymous letters written to Modi down to local office.
  7. Without understanding the nuances of “Secularism” and “communalism,” they go by blind faith of calling it as “Hindutwa”!
  8. Though negative suggestion, propaganda etc., are not advisable, they always indulge in such activities, exposing themselves.
  9. They advice with arrogance as if they are only next to Modi and Amit shah!
  10. Treating, commenting Dravidian leaders, parties etc., in a bad language.
  11. Without having any political base, dreaming for power.
  12. Do not understand and realize the nuances of Dravidian alliances.
  13. Getting votes in the range of 3,000 to 20,000, but, not planning any strategy to increase votes to 50%
