An explosively revolutionary book entitled 'NGOs, Activists and Foreign Funds: Anti-Nation Industry' jointly edited by two fearless journalists and writers Radha Rajan and Krishen Kak and published by Vigil Public Opinion Forum (VPOF), Chennai was released by Narendra Modi, Chief Minister of Gujarat, in New Delhi in September 2006. Within a short period of six months this first edition has been sold out thanks to overwhelming public response. The second edition has recently been published with some additional material of great national significance.
When the first edition of this book came out in 2006, I had reviewed it in these columns. In the introduction to my detailed review, I had observed as follows: 'In an era of 'Publishing abundance' unfortunately ushered in by our perverted democracy and technological explosion, looking for needles in hay stacks has become the full-time occupation of a conservative reader who still clings to the old-fashioned belief that quality is all, I don't feel ashamed to confess that I am a conservative in regard to my reading habits and I am immensely happy now that I have found 'a needle'.' My initial immediate impressions expressed in these words have been solidly confirmed and vindicated by the upgraded quality and content of the second edition of this avant-garde book.
This book exposes the evil anti-national designs of many NGOs and activists operating in India with great enthusiasm and gusto with the full patronage and strong political support of the anti-Hindu UPA Government in New Delhi. All these NGOs are fully committed to their supreme objective of De-Hinduising the Indian State. This in effect means rendering the Hindu identity to any aspect of our national life illegitimate and irrelevant in public life and public discourse, with the subterranean objective of eroding the 'Hindu Consciousness' in the Hindus and finally wiping out the Hindu FACE of the nation.
Against this dangerous background, Radha Rajan superbly summarizes the consequential position:
'Thus arises the demand for a ban on cow slaughter, the demand of Hindu bakthas that government withdraw from temple administration and stop usurping temple money and temple revenue, the demand for the right to administer their temples and utilize temple money in the interest of Hindu Dharma, the demand that governments take cognizance of growing religious demographic imbalance, the demand that governments acknowledge the consequences of foreign, State-powered and funded religious conversions, demands for an accurate and honest writing of Indian History and the stubborn 'secularist' refusal to admit that all terrorism leading to secession is either Christian or Islamic terrorism, only attests to Hindu powerlessness in the face of political conduct which derives from a twisted definition of secularism.'
Nehruvian secularism is committed to the cause of de-nationalizing and de-Hinduising Indian polity. De-nationalizing involves the processes of devaluing both nation and nationality. De-nationalizing the Indian State, Radha Rajan asserts, has resulted in deadening our consciousness to the ignominy of the rise of a foreigner in Indian polity who aspires to become our Prime Minister. What emerges from this book can be summarized in the following equation: Mohammedanism + Missionaryism + Marxism + Macaulayism + Nehruvian Secularism + UPA Soniaian Pseudo-Secularism = Promotion of Terrorism in India.
All the anti-national NGOs considered in this book have been operating in India under the self-chosen umbrella of this overriding, indeed axiomatic pseudo-secular equation. Against this known and dark background, several NGOs and their activities have been analyzed with facts and figures which is a wake up call to all the nationalist Hindus of India. This book is indeed a veritable mine of information on many anti-national and anti-Hindu NGOs and certain high-profile individuals who are brazenly parading themselves in the forefront of anti-India and anti-Hindu propaganda on various public, social and political issues. Based on a careful analysis of the activities of many NGOs, this landmark book establishes a tangible relationship between the anti-India and the anti-Hindu dimensions of these sinister organizations and their leaders with questionable character and antecedents.
In the view of Radha Rajan and Krishen Kak, there can never be any Indian nationalism that is contrary to or separate from Hindu nationalism. It is a natural corollary that the continuing attempts to de-Hinduise our polity by these NGOs and their activists have dangerous implications for the national security and the relationship of so-called religious minorities in India with Hindus and the Indian State.
The focus of this book is on the following issues:
UPA government has carefully planted many activists belonging to the anti-Hindu category as Members in the Central Advisory Board on Education (CABE) and National Integration Council (NIC). This also includes the Archbishop of Delhi! It is indeed regrettable that many of the activists under the scanner in this book under review find a pride of place in both CABE and NIC. This fact is by no means incidental but by all means planned and fundamental.
The most comic aspect in this context is that there is not a single member in CABE or NIC to represent the interests of more than 800 millions of Hindus in India even while Muslims, Christians, Marxists and Nehruvian Secularists and page boys of Sonia Gandhi have been nominated exclusively to represent the so-called minority interests in general and the overriding sovereign anti-Hindu secular interests in particular.
These anti-nation, anti-Hindu 'peace' and 'human rights' activists have the same contempt for all Hindu organic and traditional social structures and group identities as they have for the nation and national borders; so much so that they denounce family, varna, jathi and kula, religion and nation as 'upper caste' and 'patriarchal' constructs. The ultimate intent of their activism is to damage the Hindu social fiber and weaken social cohesion by De-Hinduising large segments of Hindu society.
Releasing the first edition of NGO'S, Activists and Foreign Funds, Anti Nation Industry in 2006 Narendra Modi, Chief Minister of Gujarat declared: 'The topics discussed in this book are relevant in the present times not only to India, but even to 'developed' countries, where the whole business of NGOs started. Sometimes I call these 'Noble' people five-star activists. If you study them closely, you will experience what I am saying. In America they are called Limousine Liberals! In Europe, there is a new word for them. Just as there are entrepreneurs in various sectors of business, the social service sector is called the NGO industry'. Why should we not make accountable all the NGOs that in the name of social service are increasingly developing and spreading as thriving businesses? To win public confidence, any big company entering the capital share market has to announce the tie-ups it has with specific banks, with specific financial institutions. Is it not then necessary that these NGOs, some of them in existence and operation only on their letter pads, should declare their financial resources? Today, we do not have any idea about the financial resources of NGOs - Funds are obtained from abroad; an NGO is set up; a PR firm is recruited and slowly, with the help of the media, an image is created. And then awards are procured from foreign countries to enhance this image. Such a vicious cycle, a network of 'finance- activity- award' is set up and once, they have secured an award, no one in Hindustan dares raise a finger, no matter how many may be the failings of the Awardee. How much of the money meant for the service sector, for the poor, is spent by these NGOs on their own establishment? You will see senior bureaucrats traveling economy class, but not NGO activists?'
These fundamental and vital issues raised by Narendra Modi have been studied and analyzed with great objectivity by all the writers focusing on the different aspects of the uncontrolled, uncontrollable and non-accountable NGOs operating in India today in a treasonable and traitorous manner with the full knowledge and cooperation of all the functionally cosmetic and politically servile enforcement agencies of the Government of India like IB, CBI, RAW, Union Home Ministry etc. Each learned article in this book is marked by a patient pursuit of facts, and a cautious combination and comparison of them in a scientific manner. Each writer makes us aware that the main part of public education is not just the sterile acquisition of inert facts but learning how to make those facts live in the larger public interest of greater and greater public awareness of dangers and threats to our nation's identity and survival. All these great writers offer us the most direct representations of the possibilities of civil existence in India and the impending disaster of its dissolution in the absence of continuous public vigilance. Reading and discussing the seminal articles in this book, I have begun the wholesome act of repossession. I can declare from the house top that these writings not only scrape but drive away the haze of irresponsible and anti-national second handedness of the pseudo-secular mafia of mass media in India today.
