Let the R.S.S. leader praise Jinnah but he must tell who has assassinated Gandhi? Tamil Speech by S.V.Ramani.
The former chief of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, KS Sudarshan, has said in Indore on 25-8-2009 that Jinnah was
“a true (Indian) nationalist” and secular in his outlook until he was painted in a corner by Congress leaders like Jawaharlal Nehru.
Sudarshan praised Jinnah’s secular outlook by recalling that “when Mahatma Gandhi supported the Khilafat movement in 1919, Jinnah opposed it. He went on to say that it was not Jinnah, but Gandhi’s soft-corner for Nehru, which resulted in the 1947 Partition. He also said Gandhi had repeatedly offended Jinnah.
I want to bring it to the notice of K.S. Sudharsan before Independence, Jinnah replied to a foreign correspondent “The last thing in attaining freedom for Pakistan, I seek is bloodshed. Although if driven to it, no Muslim is afraid to defend himself. “After some years Sir Sikander Hayat Khan, the Chief Minister of the Punjab had expressed his fear that if Pakistan if created would mean a massacre. His fear proved to be only true and a lot of massacre engulfed Muslims, Hindus and others.
In the March and April 1919, the struggle for the Independence was almost entirely confined to the Punjab and Western India. Most of the rioting in Delhi, Lahore, Amristar and elsewhere was characterized by racial hatred which was instigated by British Government. Without any reason, the government arrested Mahatma Gandhi on his way to Punjab and this provoked a riot in the mill town of Ahmadabad, where Gandhi was well known and loved by all. Gandhi was again released and helped to restore order.
On 15th April martial law was declared in the Punjab in consequence of a deal, which becomes one of the great rallying cries of Indian Independence. Amristar a city of 3, 00,000 inhabitants and the important religious centre of the Sikhs were about 250 miles north-west of Delhi. In Amristar on 10th April two nationalist leaders were arrested and deported. Provoked by this act of British Rulers a large crowd attempted to enter the European Cantonment and being turned away by British Army, they began rioting in city. Two banks were attacked and other Europeans were also attacked by them and railway stations set on fire.
The Military under one General Dyer restored order and all public meetings and assemblies were declared illegal. On April 13th to protest against the atrocities of General Dyer thousands of people gathered in a large enclosed ground known as “Jallianwalla Bagh”. On hearing this General Dyer personally went to the spot with ninety Gurka and Baluchi soldiers and two armoured cars with which he blocked the only exit of the Ground. Then without warning he ordered his men to open fire on the densely packed innocent people, and on his own admission fired 1605 rounds before he withdrew, ordering the armoured cars to remain and prevent anyone from leaving or entering the Bagh. Official figures gave 379 dead and 1200 wounded but really thousands of people were massacred by the shooting of cruel Dyer.
The affair of the Jallianwala Bagh certainly had a moral effect, particularly upon Gandhi. For him there was now no compromise with the British and he declared the Co-operation in any shape or form with this satanic government is sinful.
How the R.S.S. leader not aware of these incidents, and how he is appreciating Jinnah for not even condemning the incidents of Jallianwallah Bagh? Let the R.S.S. leader praise Jinnah but he must tell who has assassinated Gandhi and what is the reason for that?
