Is India Going the Way of 1930s Germany?
by Arun R. Swamy
March 27, 2002


The recent rounds of violence between religious groups in India do more than reveal the fragility of India's secular state. They highlight the inability of Indian democracy to combat what is essentially a fascist onslaught.

At first glance what happened in India appears to be another--if extreme--case of religious passion gone awry. A train carrying Hindu activists to the disputed religious site of Ayodhya was firebombed by a mob, killing 58 of the activists. Several days of revenge attacks by Hindus against Muslims followed in the state of Gujarat, killing over 700.

However, India's Hindu Nationalists have always resembled 1930s European fascists more than they do contemporary "fundamentalists." Members of the core organization of Hindu nationalism, the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), founded in the 1920s, are given paramilitary instruction, not religious, and wear khaki uniforms reminiscent of Mussolini's brownshirts. While the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP), founded in the 1960s, is mainly concerned with religion, it still does not prescribe how Hindus should worship or behave--an impossible task given the diversity of Hindu religious practice.

Instead, like all Hindu nationalists, it is bent on characterizing Muslims as alien and hostile while seeking to unify Hindus around a romantic nationalism, in which military prowess plays a central role. Hindu nationalists' emphasis on international prestige has won them the support of the westernized middle class, typically the target of Islamic fundamentalism. Their focus on demonizing Muslims rather than promoting Hinduism is illustrated even by the dispute over Ayodhya, where extremist Hindu groups destroyed a 16th century Muslim mosque in 1992, sparking nationwide sectarian riots in which more than 2,000 people died.

Hindu nationalists claim that a temple on the same site honoring the birthplace of the Hindu deity, Rama, was torn down to make way for the mosque. For Hindu extremist groups the claim that a temple was torn down to build a mosque--for which there is no concrete evidence--was at least as important as the claim that Rama was born at the site. The destruction of the mosque was commonly spoken of in terms of retaking territory that had been lost to invaders. Hindu nationalists have identified other mosques they wish to destroy, claiming that these too were built on temple sites. For none do they claim the sanctity associated with the birthplace of Rama. Indeed, the purpose of claiming a particular site as Rama's birthplace--for which there is no basis in theology or tradition--was to justify tearing down the existing mosque.

It is this fascist ideology, and the fact that a party espousing it is at the head of the national government, that makes the recent anti-Muslim pogroms in Gujarat so much more disturbing than earlier rounds of riots. As horrific as the recent violence was, more died in 1992. But the political establishment's response this time has been ambivalent and feeble. The paralysis in the political system is emboldening the Hindu extremist organizations responsible for the Gujarat "riots" to press their agenda more forcefully. There are times when India seems to resemble Germany in the 1920s and early 1930s.

The analogy to the rise of Hitler is not one that should be made lightly, but there are many parallels. The Gujarat attacks were not spontaneous expressions of mob rage but were highly organized and brutally efficient, probably identifying Muslim homes and businesses through the use of public records. The state government was almost certainly complicit in the wave of violence that affected the entire state and saw no effort by the police to control it. The central government was slow to dispatch the army, and has attempted to put the focus on the train attack, for which they blame Pakistani intelligence.

The state government initially sought to limit judicial inquiry to investigating the train attack, to use its emergency powers only against those accused of the train attack, and to offer higher levels of compensation to the (Hindu) victims of the train attack on the grounds that they were victims of terrorism. Even many liberal intellectuals and politicians, whose protests forced the state government to retract some of these measures, have tacitly accepted the idea that several days of targeted anti-Muslim violence can be equated with the attack on the train, and even resulted from it.

Worse, there has been no effort by those in power to hold those responsible for the Gujarat attacks accountable. The national government, run by the same party as the state government, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), has chosen not to use its constitutional authority to take over the state's administration despite having attempted last year to do so on law and order grounds in another, opposition-ruled state. Although the government has banned militant Islamic groups, it has ignored calls by parties both in the opposition and in its own coalition to do this to Hindu extremist organizations. The involvement of these organizations in the Gujarat violence is widely attested to, and they were banned after they tore down the Ayodhya mosque in 1992.

Worse still, even after the Gujarat riots the government negotiated with the VHP over its plans to begin construction of a temple on the disputed site. The compromise involved an official in the Prime Minister's Office accepting possession of two pillars intended for inclusion in the temple structure. Even though this seriously compromised the Indian state's claims to religious neutrality, the government has congratulated itself for defusing a potentially explosive situation.

To be sure, the government is in a tight spot. BJP members of parliament have expressed outrage at the government's refusal to let temple construction proceed until the Supreme Court rules on the subject. However, statements and actions by Hindu extremist organizations since suggest that they have been emboldened by the concessions the government has made. Over the weekend of March 15 members of several right-wing Hindu organizations stormed and sacked the legislative assembly of the state of Orissa for unknown reasons, while the RSS warned Indian Muslims that their safety depended on the goodwill of the Hindu majority. The next week the VHP indicated that it had plans to carry the ashes of the train attack victims in processions throughout the country--an act calculated to incite mob fury. It later disavowed its plans when many of the BJP's coalition allies threatened to pull out of the coalition if the plans were carried through.

The opposition parties and some of the BJP's coalition allies have succeeded in checking the VHP to some degree. They have called for Hindu extremist organizations to be banned, and condemned the compromise with the VHP over the performance of the temple ceremony, as well as the attack on the Orissa assembly and the RSS' statement on Muslims. In addition to blocking the alleged plans to carry the ashes of Hindus killed in the train attack in a procession many have threatened to withdraw their support if the Ayodhya temple is built. The BJP leadership has promised to abide by the Supreme Court's ruling on the temple site. However, the VHP can undertake many provocative acts short of actually constructing the temple and has announced plans for more religious ceremonies centering on the temple issue around the country. There is a limit to how many battles the allies can fight and win from within the government.

The BJP's allies have been reluctant to withdraw from the government and indeed, voted with the government in passing a Prevention of Terrorism Bill that will significantly weaken protections for civil liberties including allowing confessions extorted from prisoners by police to be admitted as evidence. The Act, the provisions of which are currently in operation as an executive order, was defeated in the upper house of parliament where the opposition parties are in a majority, but it then passed in an unusual joint session of parliament. During the acrimonious debate two former prime ministers charged that the existing ordinance was used selectively against Muslims in Guajarat, while the current Leader of the Opposition, Sonia Gandhi, argued that the law would be used by the national government to intimidate its opponents and divide the country.

Short-term political calculations keep the government in power. Most of the BJP's allies are regional parties. The opposition Congress Party, which has won a string of recent elections is their local rival. Similar divisions between the Congress and other opposition parties have also hindered efforts to form an alternate coalition. Indeed, some opposition parties are gravitating toward the government out of tactical considerations even as some of its allies pull away from it. Meanwhile the two communist parties, outwardly the most opposed to the BJP, have announced that they would refuse to support a Congress government because of differences with that party's economic policy.

This combination of organized thugs affiliated with the ruling party who terrorize a minority community and intimidate a silent majority, with a divided opposition in which the center is getting squeezed from both sides, is only the most obvious parallel to Germany in the early 1930s. Over the past few years, the BJP has tried to reshape the secondary school curriculum by stealth in ways that fit with Hindu nationalist ideology and has presided over the slow militarization of the polity. By casting the Pakistan-supported insurgency in Kashmir as a crisis of national security, military expenditures have been increased while social welfare expenses have been cut. The command structure of the armed forces, which were kept divided for decades to ensure civilian control, has been unified in recent years. With the passage of the Prevention of Terrorism Bill, the government will have most of the tools it requires to gradually reduce the space for dissent.

There are many factors that could prevent this from happening. The Supreme Court has blocked both the VHP's plans for Ayodhya and the release of new textbooks following the social studies curricula. The National Human Rights Commission, which in India has some judicial powers, has rejected the Gujarat government's initial report on the riots as "perfunctory" and demanded a more thorough accounting. With the opposition parties controlling the presidency, upper house of parliament, most state governments, and therefore the electoral college for electing the next president this summer, it would be difficult for the BJP to significantly alter the constitutional balance or to declare a state of national emergency. Moreover, the government has a stake in preserving India's credentials as a secular state, in order to maintain U.S. pressure on neighboring Pakistan to crack down on militant Islamic groups and in order to develop economic ties with Islamic countries like Iran. Continued provocations by Hindu extremist organizations could yet force a rift between the BJP and its allies or even within the BJP, which is divided over the temple issue.

However, the difficulty India's mainstream parties have had in maintaining a united opposition to the BJP's agenda, and the change in the international attitude toward civil liberties following September 11, make it difficult to feel confident that Hindu fascism will be defeated. For this to happen, both centrist parties in the ruling coalition, and India's friends abroad will need to recognize that what happened in Gujarat was not just another instance of religious communities in conflict. Rather, as Indian opposition leaders have charged, it was part of a broader tendency toward eliminating civil liberties and scapegoating cultural minorities in an aggressive effort to impose a unified sense of nationhood on one of the world's most culturally diverse societies.

I guess UPA does not want Kalam to get a second term. So they want BJP to propose Shakhawat's name for President, so that UPA can get their own candidate to win. Opposing Kalam's candidature will not go well with indians. Lets see if BJP takes the bait. Personally, I think Kalam should get a second term. He has been a great president.

<!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin-->Bhairon Singh Shekhawat: The next President?
August 28, 2006
Vice President Bhairon Singh Shekhawat
It was a muggy morning in August 2002.

Managers of the Bharatiya Janata Party were scurrying around, making sure nothing went wrong. Bhairon Singh Shekhawat was to file his papers for the post of Vice President of India at 11.00 a.m. that day. But for some reason, top BJP leaders were a little unsure of the choice.

At 10.00 a.m, Pramod Mahajan got a call from Atal Bihari Vajpayee. "Are you sure you have the right man," Vajpayee asked. "Are you sure you are not making a mistake?"

Shekhawat was a Hindi-speaking former chief minister of Rajasthan whose heart was in politics. Would such man be able to adjust to the relatively non-political office of the Chairman of the Rajya Sabha? What is more, he might have to be the candidate for Presidentship. Would he suit?

Shekhawat won that election -- in which parliamentarians of both Houses of Parliament vote -- by 149 votes against Dalit leader and former Maharashtra Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde. As for whether he knew his job, on the fourth anniversary of his Chairmanship, question hour was suspended in the House as member after member paid him fulsome compliment (some went as far as to compare his sweetness to a rasgulla).

Reporters who have been covering Rajya Sabha for 20 years gave each other secret smiles. This was the first time any chairman had been felicitated in his fourth year. Obviously, politics was at work.

Buoyed by good wishes from the treasury benches and the opposition alike, Shekhawat has decided to throw his hat in the Presidential ring. This is after calculating that the National Democratic Alliance might have a very slight edge in the electoral college -- comprising the combined votes of legislators and parliamentarians in proportion to the population they represent -- that elects the President of India.

Calculating the numbers for a President's election is a tedious task but if done accurately, the margin of error is plus or minus 1,000. Take a look around you. What do you see: a large number of United Progressive Alliance-ruled state governments and a UPA majority in Parliament? Factually, that is true.

But because the determining factor in electing the President is the value of the vote of each legislator, it is the more densely populated states that have a bigger role in the election than, say, Sikkim or Mizoram.

According to current calculation, (without the boring detail), the UPA (including the Left parties) has around 1 lakh votes more than the NDA. But, the third front (non-NDA, non-UPA) parties and the NDA together have a nearly 1.5 lakh-vote edge over the UPA.

It is the NDA and anti-Congress parties that are in power currently in Bihar, Chhatisgarh, Gujarat, Jharkhand, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Orissa, Rajasthan, Sikkim and Uttaranchal. But this leaves out three important states where Shekhawat will have to put in considerable work if he wants to realise his ambition: Uttar Pradesh, Maharashtra and Tamil Nadu.

For obvious reasons, Uttar Pradesh is crucial. The Samajwadi Party-led by Mulayam Singh Yadav is, in theory, supporting the UPA, but could help a Thakur to the highest office in India for the right political signals the gesture sends.

However, in February-March 2007, UP will go for an assembly election, whereas the election for President is not till August. This could change equations.

Tamil Nadu has an overwhelming Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam representation and is unlikely to support Shekhawat, preferring to go with its central ally, the Congress. Shekhawat is due to visit Tamil Nadu after the monsoon session. He will have to put in intensive work to crack that bastion.

Maharashtra, where an alliance of the Nationalist Congress Party and the Congress is in power, could swing either way. The sniping that is going on between the allies running the government is no secret. And while industrialist Rahul Bajaj who was elected to the Rajya Sabha recently won as an independent, it is the world's worst kept secret that the BJP and NCP collaborated in his victory.

Similarly, the BJP supported the NCP in the election for a vacancy to the Maharashtra legislative council recently. Pawar and Shekhawat have an excellent personal relationship.

A lot depends on what the Congress and the Left parties are thinking about the Presidential election. One thing is clear: there will be a contest this time too and will be as bitterly fought as the last election when revered Left-backed leader Capt Lakshmi Sehgal contested against APJ Abdul Kalam in an election everyone knew she would lose.

But things are different now. Leveraging its position in the UPA, will the Left want its man in Rashtrapati Bhavan? Who will that be? Will he be a professional politician (whose chances of winning will be relatively low, given the polarisation of opinion) or a Left liberal intellectual (whom the Congress and possibly even some third front parties will support without any reservations)?

Some former NDA allies like the Assam Gana Parishad and the Left parties have already had an electoral alliance in the last assembly election, proving that the Left parties only say they would not do any deals with the NDA. The choice of candidate might be an important consideration with this uncommitted body of voters.

The Congress, if it is smart, might want to ensure dual advantage -- influencing the election in UP earlier in the year as well as the one for the President later in August. It can do this if it declares its presidential candidate around January. If it is a Dalit, and a name endorsed by the Bahujan Samaj Party, the electoral alliance of the two parties in UP could be cemented.

Shekhawat is the first one to have opened his cards. But the contest has not yet been officially declared open. Any bets? <!--QuoteEnd--><!--QuoteEEnd-->

    Congrats for this story. It is about time someone did some fair reporting on this cult. It is a cult plain and simple just like some others here said. Devotees get up in arms when you mention about the money grubbing vendors (which by the way no one has ever investigated where all of the money goes). But what about the suicides, the brainwashed children, the evil that this woman spreads in telling people to WORSHIP HER AS GOD. Yes whenever news reports that come out that are slightly critical devotees rush with all sorts of comments to defend the cult. By defending the cult you enable it. STOP ENABLING AND SUPPORTING FALSE PROPHETS AND CULT LEADERS.

    I've attended a hug-in, and I'm at a loss to explain her appeal, except that she appeals to the incomplete sense of self that American consumer culture inculcates in most of us and the spiritual destitution that it such culture promotes.

    I wish that Amma would spread the proceeds from her hugs more locally, rather than funnel it all back to India. These days, we're a third-world country, too.

    Is Amma on H1B? It seems to laid off Americans like another episode of an Indian offshore industry making money out of USA. Whether it is IT or so called sprituality based on Hinduism, yoga etc etc. The bottom line is the money from American pockets.

Quote:Aishwarya Rai 'racist' jewellery ad withdrawn in India

23 April 2015

From the section India

Aishwarya Rai is a top Bollywood actress and a former Miss World

An Indian jewellery advertisement featuring top Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has been withdrawn after criticism that it was "racist" and promoted child slavery.

The advertisement shows a black, emaciated child holding a red parasol over the fair, bejewelled actress.

A group of activists, in an "open letter" to Ms Rai Bachchan, called the image "extremely objectionable".

The film star's publicist said she had been photographed without the backdrop.

"The final layout of the ad is entirely the prerogative of the creative team for a brand," Ms Rai Bachchan's publicist said in a statement, suggesting that the actress had not been involved in the final image that appeared in the advertisement for Kalyan Jewellers.

The ad featuring the 41-year-old, who is a former Miss World, appeared in a newspaper last week.

After criticism, the company issued an apology on its Facebook page. It said the advertisement was intended to portray "royalty, timeless beauty and elegance" and expressed deep regret for any inadvertent hurt caused.

The company said it had begun withdrawing the ad from its campaign.

In an open letter addressed to the film star and published on Wednesday, a group of activists expressed "dismay" at the "offensive image".

"In the advertisement you appear to be representing aristocracy from a bygone era - bejewelled, poised and relaxing while an obviously underage slave-child, very dark and emaciated, struggles to hold an oversize umbrella over your head.

"The extremely fair colour of your skin (as projected in the advertisement) contrasted with the black skin of the slave-boy is obviously a deliberate 'creative' juxtaposition by the advertising agency, and insidiously racist."

The activists said the image reminded them of "17th and 18th century colonial European portraits of white aristocracy, depicting women being waited upon by their 'black servants'" and called on the actress to dissociate herself from "this offensive image".

In India, where there is a marked preference for fair skin and skin-whitening creams and lotions are big business, many say the advertisement perpetuates the retrograde idea that fair is beautiful.

The advertisement was also criticised on social media. Author and activist Meena Kandasamy tweeted:

[screengrab of some twithead tweeting:]

Quote:Meena Kandaswamy


Whoever came up with this great "concept" is obviouslt not bothered about racism or child slavery. After all, in...

<some link>

Things that can be noted:

1. Yet another psecular attack on any Hindu orgs and persons doing well. This time a Hindu-named jewellery store and a nominally-Hindu actress (Rai goes to temples, or did, when I last heard).

In reality, the attack on the ad is not an attack against the actress or the jewellery store (or rather, the ad firm it hired). But the attackers are trying to use the ad as an anecdote for 'crimes' projected onto 'India' (read Hindu India) as being 'generally the case'. The attackers have even had to resort to projecting the west's infamous history of racism and slavery (including esp of children) onto India to achieve this.

2. The above news item is Yet More Proof of the powerful network that connects the anti-Indian nexus with their foreign handlers, like the BBC:

how quickly the Indian "activists" can get the sensationalised stories they manufacture in to the BBC, so that the psyops can become "international news".

Britain hopes to do an equal equal, as news of its virulently racist, brutally colonial and misogynist past and even present is coming to light. (Not to mention UK's hand in the slave trade and child trafficking. As Trollope -was it- remarked, paraphrasing: Americans may have kept Africans as slaves as a rule and the Brits generally didn't, but the Brits were up to their shoulders in trafficking Africans as slaves, i.e. the slave trade itself. Not to mention Brits keeping Africans as slaves on christo-western plantations in or about the Indies. And the established British treatment of Africans - African women - is also seen alluded to graphically in one cinematic adaptation of Mansfield Park. BBC should know all about it, they commissioned the director/screenwriter but got flak for the final product these created.)

3. Christo colonial crimes of Europe - of using African children and adults as slaves for Euros,

is now magically projected onto India by Indian cryptochristos (the usual vocalists, Meena Kandasamy sounds familiar) deliberately reading and presenting the presence of an Indian child and another Indian (Aishwarya Rai), as instead channeling the treatment of Africans/Indians enslaved by Europeans masters.

Said cryptochristos:

Quote:In the advertisement you appear to be representing aristocracy from a bygone era - bejewelled, poised and relaxing while an obviously underage slave-child, very dark and emaciated, struggles to hold an oversize umbrella over your head.

Note how the cryptochristos allude to a bygone era - a temporal displacement - but carefully ignore the spatial and ethnic displacement: that it was exclusively a European hobby to treat enslaved Africans and Indians this way, and that that behaviour in no way reflects Indian-Indian interactions.

How can christo western European slavery of Africans & Indians reflect on Indians or their behaviour (and even ads)? How can christowestern European crimes against Africans and Indians be passed off onto heathen Indians? There is no relation. Still heathen Indians don't have any relationships to the christowest and have no share in their crimes past or present. Christocrimes - like fascism/nazism, racism, slavery, genocide of heathens, clerical abuse - are christo. Christowest's past reflects exclusively on the christo(conditioned) west and christian converted nations in the rest of the world. Not on anyone else: heathen Europeans (=following their own ancestral religions) or other ethnic heathen populations in the world.

Cryptochristo Indians are merely trying to universalise peculiarly christian crimes - such as fascism and slavery and racism - by pretending that others can ever be guilty of the same. Cryptochristos indulge in this pretension by trying to project these exclusively christian crimes onto non-monotheistic others. But christian crimes are crimes against humanity borne of christian theology such as its exclusivism. That is, they are entirely derived from christian minds and none but christians and christoconditioned are infected by them. So while Meena Kandasamy (crypto christist) may be a racist and predate on children and be part of the ever-fascist christian church, but Hindoos and others can never be accused of the same: racism, fascism and child slavery and abuse of women etc don't derive from our heathen religions. <= Christians know this, which is exactly why they resort to projecting their crimes on to others, in the hopes that ignorami will believe them (christians will, being great ignorami).

Meena Kandasamy and other cryptochristos and aliens should be outed for negating European racism and slavery by projecting it onto enslaved populations like Hindoos (and elsewhere on Africans: lots of western racists today like to accuse Africans of "racism" for skin-lightening, for the promotion of fairer Africans or multi-ethnic people of African origin on TV presented as "pure" "blacks" (western people screech that the "white" ancestry in these multi-ethnic people is ignored and that this is "racism", never mind that the actors themselves identify themselves as "black", i.e. with fellow persons of African origin), for some African-origin men preferring fairer African women or even western women, for the treatment of dark vs fair Africans etc. IIRC even Rihanna tried to downplay accusations that she was more popular because her increased fairness appealed by accusing Africans in her home country of Barbados in return: she accused darker Africans of discriminating against her fairer skin. Soon we'll hear how such African-African interactions are magically "racism" too.

Lots of western racists further try to minimise the western slave-trade/genocide of Africans by saying that the "Africans" as well as the islamic Arabs "did it too". It's beyond doubt that the christowest and islamic ME competed to enslave Africans. But the convenient fact concealed is that the African kingdoms that joined in enslaving fellow Africans were specifically the christo-converted African kings, and that these usually targeted heathen Africans in neighbouring or their own reigions: as part of the convert-or-enslave/kill enterprise.)

- Any fool knows there is no "racism" at all where Indian-Indian interactions are concerned. It's no more than if the video featured Beyonce or Rihanna and a darker African-origin child: can't be racism either. It may be a rich vs poor dichotomy, or elitists vs people not having the same opportunities - and objectionable on those scores - but it is Not racism.

Besides, even those that have heard of AIT can't get around the fact that Aishwarya Rai is ethnically S Indian, being a Tulu, making her "dravoodian" for oryanists-dravoodianists.

Yet look how christos of various hues (including dravoodianism peddlers) always bleat "racism", having invented AIT and that there are different 'races' in India. Any allusions to "racism" where Indian-Indian interactions are concerned show the obvious christian hand. It's also seen in the typical mention of that other favourite subject of christos: the "skin-lightening/skin whitening" hobbies of the rich and progressive. Conveniently glossed-over/concealed is how this hobby is promoted and fueled by western cosmetics companies (like Garnier etc) that manufacture and sell these products and advertise for them in India: they're the ones that promote skin-lightening and brainwash rich brainless Indians into it, via christowestern and christo-Indian magazines in India like Femina etc.

- But "racism" and "child slavery" (besides the "mistreatment/oppression of women") are exactly the western and Indian christian agendas on India: that this latest news report aligns so beautifully on the very topics the UK/christowest and their Indian christian slaves=converts in India have wanted to bring up in the UN and everywhere is more then mere coincidence.

- The west always gets natives to start creating the ruckus first, in the country being socially-engineered (a detailed discussion of another example here): the west needs native voices to speak their lessons/read their scripts for them, so the west can then present the plants as "Indians are objecting to this problem themselves, so it is a true problem about India and independent of our designs/foreign policy against India."

- How come western racism and child slavery and oppression of women has never been reprimanded. The west suddenly got "over them", decided it was no longer fashionable/didn't fit with the western pretence at being the morally upright civilised (even though these very matters were the definition of their self-perceived "civilisation" not long before); not counting the fact that western slavery of ethnic children in "3rd and 2nd world" countries and oppression of ethnic women in "2nd and 3rd world" countries is ongoing: half of all child labour in SE Asia (and many in India) is actually in the 'employ' of western companies, many are multimillion dollar MNCs. So too the underpaid, overworked labour of adults, also working in sweatshops. I think Nike and/or Reebok and/or LA Gears and/or Puma were raked over the coals for this in my teen years. There was some grumbling about IIRC Apple too.

And let's not bring up the western promotion of child or women trafficking in the Philippines and Thailand etc. The exploitation of humans there is entirely for the west, by the west and in Philippines happens with the connivance of native converts=traitors acting as middlemen.
