AP Samachar - 15 AP Samachar 2011 \\\\\\\\ Division of State not Heroes\\\\\\\ Posted on March 12, 2011 by Ayush \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ March, 10th 2011 is a sad day in the history of Hyderabad. A day when some extremist elements destroyed 19 statues of some of the greatest icons of culture and literature. This was part of the Telangana million march called by the TJAC. As the extremists took control, the rest of the crowd watched as bystanders. A classic case of how the frenzy of a crowd can go out of control of leadership.\\\\\\\\\\\ Heroes of Bharat are worshipped above the boundaries of states, region, caste and panthas since time immemorial. The legacy of the nation has been built by people from all parts of the country and they form the cumulative heritage of the land. Guru Gobind Singh is never treated as only a Punjabi, Sivaji was never perceived to be only a Maharashtrian. Valmiki, Vyasa, Shankara, Ramanuja, Narayana Guru, Kanaka Dasa, Ravidas and thousands of other great ancestors do not represent only the region from where they were born. They represent Bharat’s tradition. \\\\\\\\\\ It is a very narrow mind which perceives the greatness of heroes through the glasses of region. The demand for smaller states for administrative purposes is just. But, to detach ourselves from the legacy of our great ancestors giving a regional angle to them is foolishness. \\\\\\\\\ Shalivahana on whose name a entire the Shalivahana Shaka is named, Sri Krishnadevaraya who along with his ancestors stood as a bulwark against Islamic invasions in South India, Annamaya whose songs are rendered by Bhaktas across the country, Siddhendra Yogi the founder of the world-famous Kuchipudi classical dance form more than 600 years ago, Ramdas who is quoted as an epitome of Bhakti, Rani Rudramma Devi , S. Radhakrishna – 2nd President of India, Nanayya, Kshetrayya, Molla, Yogi Vemana and many more are not merely regional entities. They represent the cumulative heritage of Bharat.\\\\\\\\\ The destruction of these statues is an insult of the collective wisdom of Bharat. This is a day of shame for the people of Bhagyanagar ( Hyderabad ) who allowed the destruction of these statues. While it is true that there are hundreds of other great people born here whose statues must be there, it is not a justification to destroy statues of existing greats. \\\\\\\\\\ A nation is judged by the treatment it gives to the heroes of the land. This is a time when all nationalists must rise and raise their voice to make the leaders of the movement hear that we will not allow division of our heroes . A division of state need not mean division in the hearts of people and definitely not division of our heroes. \\\\\\\\ dhanyavaad\\\\\\ Ayush \\\\\\\\\ Clik the link below to other details : \\\\\\\ Statues damaged and thrown into Tank Bund! \\\\\\\\\\\ Rashtriya Swayamsek Sangh Akhil Bharatiya Pratinidhi Sabha-2011 March 11, 12, 13, Puttur- Karnataka\\\\\\\\ Anuual report presented by RSS Sarakaryavah (General Secretary) Sri Suresh Joshi \\\\\ Parampoojaneeya Sarsanghchaalakji, respected Akhil Bharatiya office bearers, honorable members of Akhil Bharatiya Karyakari Mandal, respected praant and kshetra Sanghchalaks, karyavahas, members of Pratinidhi Sabha, specially invited brothers and sisters working in different fields of social action – all of you are welcome to this Akhil Bharatiya Pratinidhi Sabha being held in Yugabda 5112 i.e. March 2011.\\\\\\\\ It is but natural to remember all those great personalities who awakened the spirit of affection, feeling of commitment to one’s duty and total devotion to goals and ideals dear to all of us; but who are no more with us. \\\\\\\\\ Respected Kalidas ji Basu, a renowned legal luminary, a great pillar of strength for Sangh work from its inception in Bengal, one whose guidance through his incisive thinking in many difficult situations benefited our karyakartas has left us.

One of the best ‘shahir’ from Mumbai, Vitthal Umap ji completed his life’s journey on the stage at Deeksha Bhoomi, Nagpur itself while performing his play. Shri Prabhakar Panshikar who had carved a niche for himself on Marathi stage and gave pleasure to thousands of his fans in Marathi theatre merged back into the five elements. A rich voice that carried deep emotions that enraptured the hearts of millions of souls with his rich devotional songs, shastriya sangeet, great singer, Eternally shining Sun of music, Bharat Ratna Pandit Bhimsen Joshi left behind his musical voice for us and passed into eternity. Well known personalities of Gujarati music Shri Dilipbhai Dholakia ji also departed from this world. Highly energetic spokesperson for Swadeshi philosophy and life style, leader of Desh Bhachao movement, a person who could arouse unrivalled support for Swadeshi movement, Shri Rajeev Dikshit was snatched away from us by cruel fate in prime of his life.

Famous industrialist of Gujarat, Shri Pranlal Bhogilal who always used to support us in various activities and had earned respect due to his social activities; as also Shri Ishwarbhai Patel who worked in the field of sewa and social harmony with inspiration from Mahatma Gandhiji completed their live’s journeys. \\\\\\\\\\\ These great souls are the ones who led an exemplary ideal life of purity and transparency even as they trod the self chosen path of duty, firm in their faith for the ideals for which they lived. We shall feel surcharged with energy by simply remembering such noble souls. We shall never be able to see them again through our physical eyes. They shall always live in our memories.\\\\\\\\\\ We express our deep condolences for our brethren who departed from this world due to accidents that took place during Sabarimala yatra and natural disasters, or died due to violence perpetrated by terrorists and Naxalites, and we pay our homage to noble departed souls.\\\\\\\\\\ Overview of Activities Sangh Shiksha Vargas were organized at 70 places all over Bharat between May to June 2010 like every year. Camps for Pratham Varsh (First Year) were held as per programmes decided by respective prants (states) and Dweetaya Varsh (Second Year) camps were organized at Kshetra (Zonal) level. Camps in South were planned on the basis of languages. Second Year training camps for senior swayamsevaks were organized at four places all over Bharat, viz. Kanyakumari, Delhi, Ranchi and Vadodara. Triteeya Varsh (Third year) training camp was held in Nagpur as usual. There was no special third year training in the last year. This will be organized in the winters this year. 11556 swayamsevaks took part from 7230 places in the First Year Camps, 2678 swayamsevaks participated from 2087 places for the Second Year; 497 participants from 370 places for special Second year (for seniors), and 877 swayamsevaks from 788 places took part in Third Year training camp. 63741 swayamsevaks from 24530 places participated in the Prathamik Shiksha Vargas all over Bharat.\\\\\\\\\\\\ Retired Chief Secretary of Assam state, Shri J. S. Rajkhowa, was the Chief Guest in the concluding ceremony of the Third Year. As per information available, at present 39908 shakhas are active in 27078 places all over Bharat. Sangh work is also going on through 7990 Saptahik Milans (Weekly get-togethers) and 6431 Sangh Mandalis at different places in Bharat. \\\\\\\\\\\ Critical analysis of quantitative aspect of Sangh work was done during the meeting of A. B. Karyakari Mandal in Jalgaon in October 2010. There was constructive discussion about the causes of growth or lack of growth in different places. We have received information about some good experiments. It was felt that qualitative analysis should also be done along with quantitative analysis.\\\\\\\\\\ Tours of Parampoojaneeya Sarsanghchalak\\\\\\\ The core message in the tours undertaken at Kshetra level by Parampoojaneeya Sarsanghchalak was about ‘karyakarta’. Interactive programmes with discussions and questions-answers sessions organized by Sampark vibhag with renowned influential celebrities in small groups in Mumbai, Surat, Sambhajinagar, Bhuvaneshwar, Sambalpur, Dhanbad etc. proved to be great success. A programme, called ‘Samvad’ witnessed the presence of 165 influential leaders from all walks of social life in Pune.\\\\\\\\\\ During the tours of other A.B. adhikaris under programmes organized at national level, constructive discussions were held about work among College students, growth at ‘Nagar’ level and quality of work. \\\\\\\\\\ Special Mentions\\\\\\\\\\ Ghosh Varg: \\\\\\\ Training workshops or camps were organized at state level by Ghosh vibhag in some states. 2363 swayamsevaks took part at 13 places. National Ghosh Varg was held in Lucknow which saw presence of 298 swayamsevaks.\\\\\\ Nav Chaitanya Shivir: \\\\\\\\ A special camp was held for College students and other young swayamsevaks of Merut prant in Merut. There were 2247 participants from all over the state. The trainees had come from 644 places, 416 colleges and 89 hostels. Highlight of the camp was that there were 1061 new entrants. Programmes were conducted in such a way that they would arouse a sense of responsibility for the society and nation in the youth. Camp participants expressed firm resolve about issues like Water management, environment, blood donation, eye donation etc. This was the achievement of this camp. Karyakartas of Merut prant had begun preparatory work from July 2010 for this camp with various programmes to make this camp a big success.\\\\\\\ Workshop conducted for College and University teachers in Punjab: Special exercises were undertaken in Punjab to improve participation of College students and teachers teaching in colleges and universities in Sangh work. Small group meetings were organized in all districts and efforts were done to see that literature about Sangh is studied, and students begin attending local shakhas. \\\\\\\\\\ Poojaneeya Sarsanghchalak’s programme was organized as a part of this exercise in October 2010 in Amritsar. Many directors, vice-chancellors, deans, heads of departments and principals were present in this workshop to make it a success. Total number of participants was 248 and a plan for follow up action is in place. Mailing of e-bulletin twice a month has begun. Vishal Sanchalan (Grand parade) in Malwa prant and other programmes: \\\\\\\ Malwa prant had organized sanchalan (parade) programmes at district/vibhag level for extending its mass contact and expansion of Sangh work. Sanchalans (Parades) were conducted in 5 places in the prant that saw participation of 43600 swayamsevaks. Public programmes of physical drills were conducted at 3 places in which 2077 swayamsevaks participated. Winter camps saw 10387 young swayamsevaks’ participation.\\\\\\\\ Support to Narmada Samajik Kumbh by Mahakoshal prant: \\\\\\ A detailed plan was made for the entire prant to seek co-operation from society at large. Heads for districts, gatnayak pramukhs and gatnayaks were nominated. A programme was chalked out that each gatnayak would contact a minimum of 20 households and get support for the kumbh in form of one kg rice, half a kg of pulses and donation of One rupee. This mass contact programme was undertaken in 27 districts of Mahakoshal prant in 214 places through 641 shakhas. In all 21593 swayamsevaks contacted 502674 families and collected 386 tonnes of food grain.\\\\\\\ Special achievement of the programme was that swayamsevaks were able to invoke support from the families and households at different levels of society. As a follow up, plans are afoot to conduct workshops for introducing Sangh in small villages, inculcating family values through various programmes and Bharatmata poojan. Plans are also afoot to send greetings on the occasion of Varsh Pratipada (Hindu New Year).\\\\\\\\ Relief work for flood affected families in North Karnataka: \\\\\ Floods in North Karnataka last year resulted in destruction of large number of villages and displacement of thousands of families. Relief material for 180 villages with the help of 2400 swayamsevaks was arranged immediately. It was resolved to build 1680 homes in 9 villages for rehabilitation under the auspices of ‘Sewa Bharati’. So far, 130 houses have been handed over in 2 Villages. Handing over ceremony of houses in Sabbalahunasi village of Bagalkot dist. was done at the hands of Poojaneeya Sudarshanji in the presence of Shri Govind Karnol Minister of Karnataka state government. \\\\\\\\\\ Meeting for Social Harmony in West Maharashtra: \\\\\\\ 644 brethren from 66 communities in 11 places came together in West Maharashtra for Social harmony meetings. These meetings were organized in the presence of A.B. Sewa Pramukh Shri Sitaram ji. There was a special Bharatmata Poojan in Talegaon of Pune district on 26th January. It saw participation of organizations of different castes, linguistic groups and educational institutions. 1498 citizens participated in this programme. \\\\\\\\\ His Holiness Shankaracharya’s programme in Devgiri prant: \\\\\\ Missionary activities are going on for past many years in Navapur tehsil of Nandurbar district adjoining Gujarat state. There would be objections to any kind of Hindu religious programmes. A five day Padyatra of His Holiness Shankaracharya of Karveer Peeth walk was organized in such an area. 4000 tribal homes were contacted in 20 villages during this walk. Tribal get-togethers were held in 3 places. Participation of matrishakti (Woman), in great numbers in these programmes was noticeable. \\\\\\\\ Kashmir Merger Day: \\\\ Public programmes were organized on October 26, the day on which Kashmir was merged with Bharat. 2491 programmes were organized in 2018 places that saw presence of 99380 women and 308708 men. Apart from this, programmes were also organized in 8917 shakhas at 7603 places in which 179809 young swayamsevaks and 72466 school going swayamsevaks took part. Follow up action on Vishwa Mangal Gau Gram Yatra: \\\\\\\\\ A national level three day conference was held at Kanyakumari for the organizations working in the field of Rural upliftment. 154 karyakartas including 27 sisters from 65 organizations participated in this conference. \\\\\\\ In the same way, Akhil Bharatiya Gram Vikas Varg (National Rural Development Workshop) was also held at Deendayal Dham in Farah of District Mathura. 188 active karyakartas from all prants involved in rural development took part in this workshop. Poojaneeya Sudarshan ji was present in this workshop. Guidance from experienced experts on varied subjects like water, earth and forest conservation, environment, bio-diversity, cottage industry, village health etc. was received. Renowned Gandhian Padmashri Shri Kutti Menon ji was specially present in this workshop. Meeting of Mahila (women) karyakartas of Sewa Vibhag: \\\\\\\\\\ A special meeting was organized in Nagpur to discuss the projects run by women karyakartas and for women. 127 karyakartas from 15 prants took part in this meeting. Ideas were discussed about an independent initiative to bring together and co-ordinate such women oriented projects. It was felt that some more activities also need to be taken up about various problems faced by women. Dharna programme\\\\\\\\ Hindutva is being tarnished with terms like Hindu terrorism, Saffron terrorism etc. Efforts are also being made to drag Sangh into this controversy. Public resentment against this kind of politics must be exhibited; with this objective a programme was chalked out to offer ‘dharna’ in all the district centres of Bharat on 10th November. This programme was widely successful across Bharat though it was taken up at a very short notice. \\\\\\\\\\ Almost one million, to be more exact 10,58,438 citizens were present in 750 places for this dharna. Participation in big numbers by mothers and sisters, well organized and disciplined way the dharnas were offered were the highlights of this programme. Highest number of participation of 25000 citizens in Jabalpur. At a short notice, success of programme shows the feelings within the society about the subject. This programme has raised the self confidence of karyartas in a big way. Press Conferences\\\\\\\\\\ A programme had been chalked out at the meeting of A.B. Karyakari Mandal held in Jalgaon, to conduct press conferences at state centres. 3492 journalists were present in 224 places. Approach of media to these press meets was positive. By giving requisite coverage to these press conferences, media has shown sensitivity and respect to the popular feeling. National Scenario\\\\\\\\\\ Decision on Ram Janmabhoomi by Allahabad High Court\\\\\\\\ Decision handed down by Lucknow Bench of Allahabad High Court on 30th September is an acceptance of the faith and belief of Crores of Hindus. Legal system of our country has not only kept their feelings in mind but has based its decision on all the facts available to it in this regard, thus respecting the sentiments of the people.\\\\\\\\\\ Some vested interests had tried to generate a tense atmosphere before the ruling. But, restraint and calm that different communities and groups have shown after the decision was made public is in tune with the culture and traditions of this country. But, Hindu society desires that all sections of the society should come together to build a grand temple for Lord Ram and present an ideal example of amity and goodwill. Enthusiastic participation of people in large numbers during the Hanumat Shakti Jagaran programmes conducted all over the country is an indication of this feeling. These programmes took place at 11467 places and attended by 63,78,680 people of which 21,22,669 were women. \\\\\\\\ Now, there is a need to pass a law in the Parliament with consensus of all law makers to clear the way for temple construction.\\\\\\ Terrorism\\\\\\\\\\ Thousands of innocent people, police and military personnel have been killed mercilessly during the continued Jihadi terrorism in last two decades. National security is sought to be destructed time and again. Not only Bharat, but the whole world community is suffering from terrorism. But, it is unfortunate that anti-Hindu forces in our country are trying to weaken the efforts to counter Jihadi terrorism by labeling the Hindu community as terrorist by citing a few incidents. Instead of assuring security to patriotic Hindu organizations, holy saints and centres of faith of Hindu society, these people are trying to create confusion about these forces in the minds of common people. With a selfish urge to remain in power or capture power, policies are being framed to pander to some communities while closing eyes to the anti-national and terrorist forces. So called leaders consider Hindu organizations to be even a greater danger than the elements fomenting Islamic terrorism. They are not even shy of sharing such views with foreign powers. But, we are sure that Hindu society can see through this conspiracy. It will foil all such attempts to manufacture falsehood and create confusion, and will co-operate wholeheartedly with the efforts towards nation building in future.\\\\\\\\\ Worrisome situation in Jammu & Kashmir\\\\\\\\\ A consensus regarding complete and final merger of Kashmir with Bharat has been arrived at many a times since 1947, but situation in Jammu-Kashmir remains a cause of worry. Infact, the root cause of Jammu-Kashmir problem is weak and indecisive policies of the central government. We have not been successful in achieving integration and sense of oneness in social, mental, economic and political sense in Jammu-Kashmir as we have done in other states of our country inspite of providing grants worth lakhs of crores of rupees for various projects and plans, sacrifice of more than one lakh innocent citizens and thousands of jawans of police and army during last 63 years. Various political parties are strengthening the forces of separatism directly or indirectly to fulfill their vested political interests. Conspiracy to remove all Hindus from the valley by forcing more than 4 lakh indigenous Hindus to run away from Kashmir, armed incursions from across the border, open support by ISI and terrorist commanders of Pakistan to leaders of active separatist organizations and training the youth, providing them with arms etc.; are all forms of undeclared war against Bharat. Having failed to fulfill their objectives through terrorism, they have changed their tactics now. Agitational terrorism is but a new form of terrorism. Anti-national forces are striking their roots deeper with time. Separatist forces are engaged in anti-Bharat propaganda by organizing seminars in capital city of Delhi and other cities. The real truth is that these anti-Bharat agitations are limited to only 5 out of 22 districts of Jammu-Kashmir. Gujjars, Bakarwals, Shias, Kashmiri Sikhs and Pandits, various refugee groups in Jammu, Dogras, Buddhists and nationalist Muslims are not part of this separatist movement. But, atmosphere being created all around is as if entire Jammu-Kashmir wants to secede from Bharat. Actually, less than half of the population from only 14% of the state’s area is part of this agitation. By using women and boys to throw stones at security forces anti-national groups spread across Bharat are trying to create an atmosphere with the help of media as if all the citizens of the valley want independence or ‘azadi’.\\\\\\\\\\\\ Negation of complete merger of Jammu-Kashmir with Bharat by Chief Minister Omar Abdullah, claiming Jammu-Kashmir to be a disputed territory, creation of such an environment by interlocutors of the Centre and open support to them by Central government and Congress leaders indicates that separatists, State and the Central government have embarked upon such a path to strike some agreement. It is difficult to imagine what kind of pronouncements would have been made had Indian Army and other nationalist forces not exerted pressure. Terming Jammu-Kashmir as a political problem and reversing its merger that began in 1953 when Dr. Mukherjee sacrificed his life and Praja Parishad conducted a historic agitation; there are now talks about formulae of autonomy, self-rule etc. \\\\\\\\ Bogey of ‘Human Rights violations’ is being raised by citing a few incidents. It is extremely important that morale of Armed forces is kept high by maintaining their special powers. This is the only way that security of common people would be assured.\\\\\\\ It is call of the times that strong action be taken against separatist elements and nationalist forces be strengthened. People in different states of the country must pressurize state and central governments in an organized manner. This is the only way that unity of the nation would be secured. Jammu-Kashmir should also have the same sense of unity with Bharat like other states. Keeping in mind the activities across the border, only solution to achieve this is abrogation of article 370, system of separate constitution and separate flag be scrapped and treating it like any other state. The right solution to this problem is to establish a sense of one country – on people – one nation. Atrocities on Rabha Hindus\\\\\\\ Incidents that took place on the first day of Christian New year near the border areas of Assam and Meghalay are a pointer to us about the dangers that we would face in future. Garo and Rabha communities are living together for many generations with cordial relations. They celebrate their festivals and follow their traditions happily together. Both the groups have been staying together respecting each others’ sentiments and respecting each other’s faith and beliefs. With increase in conversions to Christianity and a large section of Garo tribes converting to Christianity, there is a widening chasm between Garo and Rabha tribes. With failure to convert people of Rabha community to Christianity these differences have widened further, resulting in an atmosphere of intolerance. Despite this Rabha community had been co-operating in the programmes organized by Christian missionaries. After Meghalaya got the status of a State, political influence of Garo community became stronger, resulting in increase in Missionary activities. This is the reason behind current atmosphere of confrontation, violence and terror between Garo and Rabha people. Combined efforts of separatist elements, Bangladeshi infiltrators Muslims and some political leaders have generated a situation of conflict. This is the atmosphere that led to the horrible incidents in the initial weeks of January.\\\\\\\\\\ Conflicts between Dimasa and Karbi, Dimasa and Jemi in the past few years are a manifestation of activities of such anti-national forces. Violence of January 2011 reminds us of such incidents that took place earlier too. So called secular lobby is only exposing its pseudo-secularism by turning a blind eye to these facts.\\\\\\\\\\\ Meghalaya government does not have courage to get to the root of the issue and is trying to pass it off as a result of misunderstandings. Nearly 30000 Rabha brethren from 30 villages have become homeless. There is an urgent need for their permanent rehabilitation and security. Hindus have faced serious security concerns wherever they have become a minority in North East. Assamese, Bengalis and Hindi speaking groups have been forced to flee from Shillong region of Meghalaya earlier too. They have been forced to live their lives as refugees in other states since last 13 years. 40000 Riyangs, who follow their own faith, were also forcibly displaced. It is critically important to defend the traditions and faiths of various tribes in this region.\\\\\\\\\\\ Corruption: A Challenge\\\\\\ Various studies expose the terrible extent of corruption. Increasing consumerism has led to lust for self-aggrandizement, resulting in urge to accumulate wealth through unethical and illegal means. This is the root cause of this problem of corruption. There is a strong tendency to misuse constitutional positions. We are witnessing devastation of constitutional system due to this mentality. Unfortunately, there are question marks about the safety of the people who are opposing this and trying to clean up the system. It is extremely important that there should be serious thinking by the policy makers of the nation, economic experts and social thinkers about the effect on fiscal system and economic stability resulting from black money and corruption and methodologies to create a healthy system. Serious efforts must be made to bring back illegal wealth stashed away in foreign lands.\\\\\\\\\ Increasing support from the common people to agitations being organized by different groups and organizations gives us a clear indication about the public opinion in this regard. Positive signs of Hindu awakening\\\\\\\\\ Maa Narmada Samajik Kumbh\\\\\\ Maa Narmada Samajik Kumbh took place in February 2011 in Mandla. This Kumbh has manifested extra-ordinary power of the society. Maa Narmada Samajik Kumbh was organized to awaken the people against social problems and efforts to weaken the Hindu society. This festival saw participation of 415 different scheduled castes and scheduled tribes and 400 other social groups from 4000 villages of 1179 tehsils from 336 districts. It is estimated that nearly 30lac pilgrims took part in the Kumbh during these three days. Presence of Revered Shankaracharya Vasudevanand Saraswati ji Maharaj, Revered Satyamitranand ji, Sadhvi Ritambharaji, Revered Asaram Bapu and many other saints and sadhus made this kumbh a great success. Other important dignitaries like Parmpoojaneeya Sarsanghchalak Shri Mohanrao Bhagwat, Chief of Rashtra Sevika Samiti Vandaneeya Pramilatai, Chief Ministers of Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh Shri Shivraj Chauhan and Dr. Raman Singh were also present in this programme. The highlight of this festival was the co-operation of common people and the state government for this programme.\\\\\\\\\\ Vishwa Sanskrit Pustak Mela (World Sanskrit Book Fair)\\\\\\\ Prestigious Sanskrit institutions came together to organize Vishwa Sanskrit Pustak Mela. This fair was conducted with the help of 14 Sanskrit Universities, National Sanskrit institute, Akhil Bharatiya Sanskrit Pustak Prakashan Sangh and Sanskrit Bharati etc. from 7 to 10 January 2010. This is the first time in the chequered history of Sanskrit that such a programme was organized. 128 publishers exhibited their publications at this fair. Specialty of this fair was that only Sanskrit books and books about Sanskrit were show cased. 12 lakhs books worth 4 crore were sold in this period of 4 days. 4 lakhs people visited the fair. An exhibition titled ‘Gyanganga’ (Traditions of Bharatiya Knowledge) was a major attraction of this fair, and left even well versed citizens in awe.\\\\\\\\ 7146 delegates from 26 states and 12 countries were present in the fair. 310 Sanskrit books were released on this occasion which was a record by itself. \\\\\\\\ Vishwa Sangh Shivir\\\\\\\\ Vishwa Adhyayan Kendra organized a camp in Pune from 29 December 2010 to 3 January 2011 in Pune, that saw enthusiastic participation of 330 brothers, 152 sisters and 35 children from 35 countries. Shri Jagdish Shastriji who had initiated the Hindu organised work outside Bharat was also present in the camp. Discussions were held about status of Hindus staying outside Bharat, spreading and publicizing Hindu Sanskriti, organization of Hindu conferences at different places etc. Delegates were also given information about various types of activities being conducted in Bharat. Concluding valedictory public function was held in the presence of famous industrialist Shri. Abhay Firodia and Shri. Bhausaheb Chitale. Parampoojaneeya Sarsanghchalak ji addressed the august gathering. 15000 distinguished citizens participated in this function. Brethren from overseas enjoyed the cultural programmes presented by local groups and a drama titled ‘Shiv Rajyabhishek’ about coronation of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj.\\\\\\\\\\\ Appeal\\\\\\\\ We undertake a critical appraisal of our Sangh work even as we review the current social and political scenario from time to time. This is how we traditionally work. Keeping in mind the challenges that we face and expectations of the society, we have to increase our velocity and strength in a sustained manner. It is necessary for us to keep focus on strengthening our organization and systems and increasing the strength of our karyakartas. Here we recall the words of Parampoojaneeya Sri Guruji. He had said, “World today understands only one language – language of strength. A nation can progress and maintain its position only on the basis of strong foundation and immeasurable strength. We must proceed on this path of duty with great effort with this sentiment. Even an ordinary person can be completely successful in attaining one’s goal in life with this resolve.” \\\\\\\\\\\ Resolution 1 Need for a decisive blow against corruption The Akhil Bharatiya Pratinidhi Sabha expresses grave concern over the endless chain of incidents of widespread corruption surfacing in the country. It is all the more shocking that the people occupying the upper echelons in the Government, including the Prime Minister are engaged in protecting their guilty colleagues till the end by describing them as innocent in spite of incontrovertible evidences pouring out against them. The ABPS is deeply pained at the way the cases of corruption coming to light, day in and day out are tarnishing the image and reputation of the nation. The magnitude of corruption is such that not only the common man, but even the experts get bewildered. The gross misdeeds in organizing the Commonwealth games have gravely damaged the prestige of the country. People at the helm of power are either turning a blind eye or taking steps against the guilty as an eye wash under the pressure of the judiciary and media. The country wants to know as to what was the compulsion and which invisible hand was behind the misdemeanor of the top rung of power in a most sensitive matter like the appointment of the Central Vigilance Commissioner. Unfortunately, the influence of politics is growing in almost every walk of life and the instances of corruption indulged in by the people in seats of power in the post independence era are constantly on the rise. After the Independence, the country has witnessed public anger against corruption resulting in powerful mass movements. The J. P. movement of 1974-75 and imposition of emergency and the mass movement triggered by the Bofors scandal in 1987-1989 culminated in the change of power at the center. But, the change does not seem to have brought about any decline in corruption. On the contrary the form and dimensions of corruption seem to have become more complex and extensive in the wake of economic liberalization. Whether it is the share scandal of 1992 or the recent 2G spectrum scandal, mind boggling figures of money are found to be involved. What needs special mention is that the people involved in these ever increasing acts of corruption are the ones who are highly educated and belong to the affluent class of the society. All these facts clearly indicate that there is need for further intensification and expansion of the process of man-making. \\\\\\\\\\\ In this regard the ABPS believes that there is a dire need to organise every rung of social order on the firm foundation of value-based and morally strong conduct of life rooted in the eternal principles of Dharma. This is possible only by reorienting education-system to reflect the national ethos and serve as an effective instrument of character-building and imparting noble samskars. At the same time it is imperative for the people in high positions that they present exemplary models of conduct in their private and public life.\\\\\\\\ Apart from these reforms of far-reaching consequences, reform in the system of governance & administration and mobilising effective public opinion in favour of that, is equally important. Transparency in governance, administration through minimum and simplified regulations, judicial system based on easy access and timely dispensation of justice, elimination of black money, electoral system capable of effectively curbing the criminalisation of politics and checking the growing influence of money power are a few reforms urgently needed. It is also imperative to ensure proper security for the whistle blowers who courageously expose corruption in the present system at different levels and to have stringent penal provisions against the corrupt. Indeed the poisonous creeper of corruption is responsible for all the contemporary social ills like inflation, unemployment and black money which has also been affecting the country’s development and the internal and external security. In connection with the problem of black money, the government should acquire black money stashed in the country and outside, declare it as the nation’s asset and deploy it for developmental purposes.\\\\\\\\\\ The ABPS appreciates the efforts of such courageous individuals, organizations , constitutional institutions, alert media and vigilant Judiciary for their efforts against corruption in the present challenging scenario and calls upon the countrymen to extend their active support for such noble endeavours with utmost personal integrity and also nourish our traditional social institutions actively involved in character-building of our citizens. \\\\\\\ Resolution 2\\\\\\\ Defeat Chinese Designs against \\\\\\\ our National Interests and Security The Akhil Bharatiya Pratinidhi Sabha expresses serious concern over the growing multi-dimensional threat from China and the lackluster response of the Government of Bharat to its aggressive and intimidator tactics. Casual attitude and perpetual denial of our Government in describing gross border violations by the Chinese People's Liberation Army as a case of 'lack of common perception on the LAC', attempts to underplay the severe strategic dissonance between the two countries and failure to expose the expansionist and imperialist manouvers of China can prove fatal to our national interests. \\\\\\\\\ The ABPS cautions that the growing civilian and defence ties between China and Pakistan are a matter of grave concern to our national security. Presence of the 10,000-strong Chinese Army in Skardu ( PoK) in the guise of construction works and repairs to Karakoram highway is a serious issue as it allows China to encircle Kashmir . Other issues of concern that best exemplify Chinese' assertiveness include its offer to export one - Gigawatt (GW) nuclear plant and transfer of ballistic missile technology to Pakistan thus precipitating potential nuclear conflict in the region. \\\\\\\ The malafide intentions of China are conspicuous in a number of recent developments. It has falsely charged Bharat of occupying 90,000 sq. km of its territory (including Arunachal Pradesh and Sikkim); It is excluding the state of J&K from Bharat in its maps; It is also excluding 1600 KM-long border in J&K from the LAC on the Tibet-Bharat border; It has initiated issuing paper visas for Bharatiya citizens from J&K besides citizens from Arunachal Pradesh. The Chinese troops entered Gombir area in Demchok region last year and threatened the civilian workers to stop construction work. In November 2009, a road project under Centrally-sponsored National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (NREGS) in Ladakh, was stopped after objections were raised by the Chinese Army. Infact, it is China which has encroached upon our territory inside the LOC in that region and constructed a 54 km long road for military purposes. The ABPS sees potential danger from the Chinese machinations in our North East. Its continued claims over Arunachal Pradesh shouldn't be taken lightly as it has set its eyes not only on that state but on the entire North East. Recent expose' in a leading Bharatiya weekly about the extent of the involvement of China in arming, encouraging and funding insurgent groups like the NSCN should awaken us to this danger. Besides NSCN insurgents other insurgent groups in the North East like the NDFB, ULFA etc also get patronage from China. It is also a matter of serious concern that the ISI too is operating in cahoots with China in this region. The A.B.P.S. expresses concern over the growing number of cases of Chinese spies being arrested in different parts of the country. It is well-known that the weapons from the Chinese government weapon manufacturers find their way to the Maoists and other terrorist groups in Bharat through illegal weapon ports like Cox Bazar in Bangladesh. Fake currency also is being pumped into Bharat from China. The ABPS wants to draw the attention of the Government and people to the occasional publications in the officially-controlled Chinese media about dismembering Bharat into 20-30 pieces. Penetration of Chinese goods into Bharatiya market is affecting our manufacturing industry adversely besides posing a serious challenge to our security, health, environment and strategic concerns. The ABPS wants the Government to tackle this issue of China's penetration into our system through trade and commerce with utmost seriousness. All citizens should refrain from using Chinese products as an expression of patriotism.\\\\\\\\\\\ The ABPS wants to draw the attention of our government and countrymen to the threat from China in the form of diversion of river waters in the South Central Tibetan region. In the process it would be robbing lower riparian states like Bharat, Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh, Myanmar and Thailand of their right to the waters from rivers like Brahmaputra and Sindhu which originate from Kailash - Manasarovar in Tibet. Joint mechanism established in 2007 between Bharat and China to oversee water related issues remain dysfunctional mainly due to the utmost secrecy maintained by China in its water management plans. Two of our states i.e. Himachal Pradesh and Arunachal Pradesh were hit by flash floods and it was suspected at that time that these floods were due to some form of interference in the river flow by the Chinese. Our engineers were not allowed to inspect the upper streams of the river by the Chinese government. The ABPS warns the government that unless the issue is addressed immediately the situation may lead to serious crises between the two countries. The ABPS urges our Government to take note of the expanding military and diplomatic might of China not only in the immediate neighbourhood but also in the strategically important regions like Africa and the West Asia. China's 3.1 million strong Army is being rapidly modernized with newer weapons and technology. It has built all-weather roads and extended railway network along Tibet, Nepal and Bharat border. China today is a formidable player in the Indian Ocean region. It is establishing contact with all kinds of renegade dictators in the world including the North Korean and Sudanese dictators. Its strategic experts are propounding such disdainfully dangerous theories like Preventive Use of Nuclear Weapons suggesting that China should reserve the right of first attack against any nuclear power with nuclear weapons as a preventive measure. \\\\\\\\\\\\\\ In such a challenging scenario the ABPS calls upon the government to: \\\\\\\\\\\\ 1. Reiterate the Parliament’s unanimous resolution of 1962 to get back the territory acquired by China to the last inch.\\\\\\\\\\\\ 2. Take effective measures for rapid modernization and upgradation of our military infrastructure. Special focus should be on building infrastructure in the border areas. Towards that, constitution of a Border Region Development Agency should be considered which would help prevent the migration of the people from the border villages.\\\\\\\\\\\ 3. Use aggressive diplomacy to expose the Chinese' designs globally. Use all fora including ASEAN, UN etc for mobilizing global opinion.\\\\\\\ 4. Disallow Chinese manufacturing industry free run in our markets. Prohibit Chinese products like toys, mobiles, electronic and electrical goods etc. Illegal trade being carried out through the border passes must be curbed with iron hand.\\\\\\\\ 5. Follow strict Visa norms and maintain strict vigil on the Chinese nationals working in Bharat.\\\\\\\\\\ 6. Restrict the entry of Chinese companies in strategic sectors and sensitive locations. 7. Mobilize the lower riparian states like Myanmar, Bangladesh etc to tell China to stop their illegal diversion of river waters. \\\\\\ \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ PLEASE ADD RESOLUTION NO. 8 AS FOLLOWS:-\\\\\\\\ WE ARE DETERMINED TO WIPE OUT THE MOHAMMEDAN AGGRESSION ON BHARAT THAT RESULTED IN ILLEGAL, UNDEMOCRATIC AND SECTARIAN DIVISION OF BHARAT INTO INDIA AND PAKISTAN IN 1947. \\\\\\\\\\ WE ARE DETERMINED TO INSIST ON ENFORCING AT LEAST ONE CONDITION OF THE TREACHEROUS INDIAN MUSLIMS AS THE PRICE OF PAKISTAN AND THAT WILL BE COMPLETE TRANSFER OF POPULATION. ACCORDINGLY ALL THE FOLLOWERS OF MOHAMMED OF MECCA HAVE NO PLACE IN SECULAR BHARAT THAT IS REGARDED BY THEM AS THE LAND OF INFIDELS. ====================== 000000000 .
