In a ‘not much heard’ move the former President and ex-Congress leader Shri Pranab Mukherjee paid a visit to the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh headquarters on Friday the 7th of June 2018. Pranab Mukherjee’s visit to the RSS headquarters in Nagpur has been seen as a setback to the narrative propagated by the Congress and Left lobby. To which many Congress leaders expressed their disappointment at the acceptance of RSS’s invitation by Pranab Mukherjee. This completely uncovers the hypocrisy of the Congress-Left bloc as their claims for Freedom of Speech and Expression and rising Intolerance are completely shattered here, as they disproving his visit are themselves Intolerant. This intolerance is of such magnitude that they cannot bear the existence of any rival ideology. The resistance to Pranab Da’s visit is due to the thought that his visit would legitimize the presence of RSS in the country which they fail to address time and again that RSS is the largest social organization in the world, largest voluntary organization and parent organization to the Bharatiya Janata Party which is ruling India at present, hence it is very much proved that RSS has been always and is currently very much relevant to the Indian politics such that it would need any sort of legitimacy from ex-Congress leader. It is really is disappointing how Congress and Left are seeing this as a threat to the secular fabric of the state, as it is the interaction of opposite ideas and ideologies that has made this nation what it is today. This ‘exchange of thoughts’ was the sole reason for invitation by the RSS and its acceptance by Pranab Mukherjee was symbols of mutual respect.
Paid media houses and politicians have for long tried to tarnish the image of RSS in the country but due to RSS’s political and social initiatives RSS stands tall. And this itch of Congress or any other Leftist parties of India is due to the fact that RSS is working to maintain the unity of the nation, while the latter have always tried to break the nation into more pieces so that they could feed onto these pieces. As stated by Mohan Bhagwat before the address of Pranab Mukherjee, “Before Independence, those who fought for freedom were all worried that ‘we are all trying but the battle won’t end till all the people don’t come together” he also said, “Sangh is an organisation to unite everyone” to which he added, “The dharma that doesn’t let society fall apart needs application to achieve” all of these statements draw a parallel to what Pranab Da said in his address about ‘Plurality and Tolerance’. What in particular in indigestible to the Congress-Left is Pranab Da using terms like Nationality, Nationalism and Motherland, since these terms are taboo for them to use.
But Luteyn’s circle media is showing as if Pranab Da taught a lesson to the RSS at their home turf. But it is not true as Mohan Bhagwat’s statements were in agreement to what the Ex-President said as he also laid stress on idea of unity, fraternity among every citizen of the nation irrespective of their caste, creed or religion. Pranab Da’s speech was in-fact a brutal attack on the JNU-Azaadi Gang, Kashmiri Stone Pelters, Naxal-Maoist nexus and even fake dalit sympathizers, of whom we are well aware about as they constantly work towards breaking the nation and it is their ultimate aim to reap havoc in the nation by installing political instability within the nation. Thus, Pranab Mukherjee by his visit to the RSS headquarters has in-fact cleared the smog made around RSS and has also taught a lesson to the Congress-Left in patriotism and nationalism which they won’t forget for a very long time.
