There are many ‘Urban legends’ prevalent in India- like Atal Bihari Vajpayee called Indira Gandhi Durga, Aurangzeb was benign etc.
The latest Urban legend propagated by Congress VP Rahul Gandhi is -RSS killed Gandhi-which he claimed very Grandly in Bhiwandi Maharashtra ,in an election rally in 2014. Of course he is facing a defamation suit for this statement in SC and will have to apologise or face jail as RSS was never involved in Gandhi Assasination. In the parliamentary face off over Freedom of speech fracas in JNU where Rahul Gandhi supported the ‘Bharat tere Tukde Honge’ Gang against ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai’ Group where he went as far as telling BJP to Keep Sarvarkar and Congress would keep Gandhi. No defamation could be bought about as Rahul Gandhi spoke in Lok Sabha.
Yesterday his trusted Pidi errr Sanjay Jha tweeted this.
It is time to correct these lies regarding RSS,Hindu Mahasabha and Veer Sarvarkar.It is a great tragedy that in India canards are still spread in regard to the greatest intellectual,brave,patriotic and Dharmic son of India.
Now to counteract the Greatest Lie about RSS,Hindu Mahasabha being responsible for Gandhi’s Assasination. The following excerpt from Wikipedia will answer most questions-if only Sanjay Jha had googled -he would have known that Hindu Mahasabha was first Conceptualised and formalised in Allahabad Congress session and Mohan Das Karamchand Gandhi had Attended the first Meeting of Hindu Mahasabha in 1915 in Kumbh mela at Haridwar.
The following are excerpts about Hindu Mahasabha from Wikipedia
formal move to establish an umbrella All-India Hindu Sabha was made at the Allahabad session of Congress in 1910
In April 1915, Sarvadeshak (All India) Hindu Sabha was formed as an umbrella organisation of regional Hindu Sabhas, at the Kumbh Mela in Haridwar. Gandhi and Swami Shraddhanand were also present at the conference, and were supportive of the formation of All India Hindu Sabha.
Amongst the Mahasabha’s early leaders was the prominent nationalist and educationalist Pandit Madan Mohan Malaviya, who founded the Benaras Hindu University, and the Punjabi populist Lala Lajpat Rai. Under Malaviya, the Mahasabha campaigned for Hindu political unity, for the education and economic development of Hindus as well as for the conversion of Muslims to Hinduism.
The Mahasabha suffered a setback when in 1925, its former member Keshav Baliram Hedgewar left to form the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, a Hindu volunteer organisation that abstained from active politics
So,Even a cursory google search tells us that Hindu Mahasabha was conceptualised and formalised in Congress Sessions with support of Mahatama Gandhi.
Also where does RSS tie up with Hindu Mahasabha when the founder of RSS Sri Hedgewar LEFT Hindu Mahasabha to form RSS? But still the canards continue with NO media countering these.
Now let us Explore the constant Maligning of Veer Sarvarkar by Congress leaders and communists. The Venom spewed is based on a mercy petition he wrote after staying in solitary confinement for 10 years in cellular jail.He is called a coward and worse. Mercy petitions were a common procedure used by political prisoners to gain political amnesty and leave prison.The political amnesty was a strategy used by freedom fighters to escape from prison and restart their struggle. Ramprasad Bismil in his Memoirs writes about these appeals and mercy petitions which were an accepted practise during British rule .
Reading these 2 pages from the memoirs establishes clearly that what Veer Sarvarkar did was an established practise of all freedom fighters who were political prisoners. This one act is set against his untold valour and suffering he endured in solitary prison for 10 years undergoing tortures designed to break the body, spirit and soul. Following are 2 pictures from my visit to Cellular jail-have visited it twice and have shed copious tears at the sufferings of our braves
