August 5: An Historical Political day| Ram Mandir

Symbol of fate, victory or controversies and disputes..

Ram Janmabhoomi or Lord Ram’s birthplace is believed to be in Ayodhya from the epic Ramayana. Lord Rama is not only our Hindu God, believed to be the seventh avatar of Lord Vishnu but his name is constantly taken for the religious perspective in the political world. Very few people know that Ayodhya was the capital of Kosala in Buddhist time ( 5th – 6th BCE)

History of Ram Janmabhoomi:

I will mention in crux about the history of this sacred place as we all know about it since our childhood.

In 1528, the then Mughal emperor Babar built a mosque in this disputed land. It is claimed that there was a Hindu temple of Lord Rama so the Mughals demolished it. History had it that many temples were demolished by many foreign rulers who ruled our country.

In 1853, some people claimed that the Babri Masjid stands on the exact place of Lord Ram’s birthplace. That led to several riots and Britishers played the divide and rule policy very well then. Later, a decision was taken that the Muslims will pray inside the mosque and Hindus will worship outside the same.

After Independence, in 1949 idols of Lord Rama were found in the mosque. On which, Hindus claimed that Lord Rama manifested, on the contrary, Muslims blamed that someone kept the idols intentionally a day before. The government then sealed the disputed place to avoid unrests, riots and violence.

West Bengal governor celebrated 5th August

On 6th December 1992, supporters and political activists of BJP, shivsena and other Hindu political organisations destroyed the disputed building in the rally which resulted in several riots. Time to time, India has witnessed violence and turmoil regarding the land.

On 9th November 2019, the Supreme Court announced the verdict stating that the land belongs to the Government based on the taxes records and ordered to build a Hindu temple.

Then came August 5, 2020, which embarks as one of the most important dates in Indian political history of the BJP RSS ideological agenda.

Many of us support the Modi government, some oppose and there are a few who are neutral but being a Hindu I am very much pleased that this is a great decision taken by the government, not just because of political reasons but also it’s how you save Hinduism, 100-200 years from now people will remember this history and the temple.

Modi government has played some masterstrokes like the changes in Jammu and Kashmir as well.

Transitions and Evolution of India

28 years ago when the mosque was brought down, most of them never even thought about a temple would be built, many said it’s injustice, other institutions claimed to rebuild a mosque and punish those were involved in breaking it down.

Today, if we see, no one has opposed it, not even the opposition parties, secularists and in fact everyone has welcomed the decision. Even a few of my Muslim friends are also pleased with the reincarnation of the temple wholeheartedly.

The only opposition leader who has opposed the decision of the Supreme Court to construct a temple is AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi. However, apart from that we found the entire nation to be united for the national project.

However, a post went viral claiming that Kerala government imposed a blackout barring the locals to watch the live telecast of Bhoomi pujan Ceremony.

I did check her account, she is quite active on social media and tweets almost every hour. She has, however, claimed West Bengal is also facing the same issue.

As I have mentioned several times in my blogs that we have an enormous and vast abundance of keyboard warriors who simply post anything just to get views and likes. Media houses later found the post to be misleading.

So has Ram Mandir polarized national politics and are we heading towards a communist government or dictatorship?

Because we are a Democratic country we know that politics cannot just be polarized.

Social distancing was violated

The question that arises in my mind, are we going to worship Modi as God?

Because he already has a huge fan base, many out of those are willing to worship him.

The downfall of Congress party because of the cell less torchbearer somehow makes us realise the hollowness and absence of a strong opposition party.

Genuine democracies do not have party-less democracies and genuine democracies do not have an ideology-less democracy.

Shekhar Gupta

Nevertheless, I came across an article, the headline just grabbed my eyeball:

At Ayodhya Bhoomi Pujan, Modi Became All-in-One; Proper Rituals Not Followed, Allege Pundits

The Wire

The article claimed that a prime minister can attend such type of ceremony as a chief guest, while the rituals should have been followed by the religious administrators.

Shankaracharya’s were absent during the pooja. We all know India is now governed by one man. It’s not a team, party or group anymore. He takes his own decision and we are his followers.

Personally, I didn’t like this picture.

Are we blind followers?

Nevertheless, the entire world celebrated the D-Day, even temples all across the US organised special events.

I am just a normal Indian citizen, I don’t support any political party as such, neither I am secular. I am simply a neutral person who simply observes the changes and behaviour within the society.

I simply raised a few questions and I would love it if you can share your views on the same.

Rahul Gandhi: PMO’s governance consolidation will bring disaster during Coronavirus pandemic.

In a recent video-conference, Rahul Gandhi said:

The lockdown doesn’t mean switching on and off the key. It requires a psychological change. The opening itself is a transition.

Rahul Gandhi

Now as we are already in lockdown 3.0, the economy which had already plummeted has been lifted up with spirits.

However, the government is trying to open up markets in certain areas and giving relaxation.

This is subject to analyse, study, discuss.

Rahul Gandhi has said the people are very scared. We need to make people understand that remaining in a lockdown state won’t help. The government have to turn the fear into confidence. It is not a dangerous disease for all. However, a segment of people who are aged, hypertension patients, diabetic etc the virus can turn out to be deadly.

So what kind of precautions and measures should be taken to fight with the pandemic?

But then the government is itself asking citizens to live with the virus and we have to. We Indian citizens have worked day and night to make India reach to bring India in the ranks of the top ten economies of the world. We can’t afford to lose such status…!!!

The nation wants to know about Arnab Goswami

Recently Arnab Goswami stole all the limelight after he published a video stating an attack on him by the Congressmen late night while he was returning from studio to home.

Again our India divided itself into groups having a different opinion.

  • Only supported Arnab
  • Supported Arnab and BJP
  • Opposed Arnab because of his cheap publicity stunt
  • Opposed Arnab just to support the opposition.

He loves controversies, he is expert in creating news. This is not the first time that such things happened. Let me take you to the journey of Arnab.

Arnab Goswami was born on 9th October 1973 in Guwahati, Assam. Born in a reputed and well-known family where his father Manoranjan Goswami is a retired army officer and a BJP member.

Strong family-political background.

He contested for the Lok Sabha polls for the Guwahati Constituency but he lost it from the congress candidate Bhubaneswar Kalita.

If you look at the family background, the entire family is very much educated. Arnab’s mother Suprabha Gain-Goswami is an author.

Arnab’s paternal grandfather was a lawyer and maternal grandfather was the legislator from the communist party of India.

Arnab in making

Arnab attended schools in many cities as his father was in a transferable job. He completed his masters in social anthropology from Oxford University where he was a Felix scholar.

After his education, he returned to India and started his career with The Telegraph, Kolkata.

I remember while watching one of his interview with Raj Thackeray where Thackeray said that you might be worked in print media as all journalist does. But he soon moved to Delhi and joined NDTV.

The journey wasn’t easy, he hopped and learnt from his experiences. He worked with DD Metro as well where we won his award as the best news anchor of Asia 2004.

In 2006, he joined Times Now as the Editor-in-Chief. He got his popularity from there when he hosted a live show at 9 pm along that he also hosted special programs like Frankly speaking.

He formed a new way of anchoring by bringing aggressively debates on topics. People loved to hear him, the way he argued, the way he use to keep his point, his English speaking.

Many companies and colleges recommended and referred to watch his show to enhance English speaking skills.

Now he is with Republic TV.

Why Arnab is called BJP puppet.

Republic TV was launched 2 years back and it’s a most-watched news channel from 100 weeks in a row.

It’s owned by:

  • Arnab Goswami
  • ARG outlier media
  • Asianet News

The channel was primarily funded by Rajeev Chandrasekhar an independent member of Rajya Sabha who had intricate links with Bhartiya Janta Party.

Arnab as a co-founder and his wife Mrs Goswami as a major investor along with Ramdas Pai and Ramakanta Panda.

Chandrasekhar resigned from the board in 2018 before officially joining BJP and Arnab bought the stakes of Rajeev Chandrasekhar.

Republic TV is accused of biased reporting in favour of BJP.

It also has an allegation of propagating fake news.

It has also been accused of breaching TRAI & NBSA rules.

And along with that, it also has been subjected to high profile defamation case by INC Lok Sabha MP Shashi Tharoor.

Current Update:

Arnab Goswami after accusing Sonia Gandhi now accuses Mumbai Police.

An FIR has been registered by RAZA Educational welfare society Secretary, Irfan Shaikh, for creating communal disturbances.

The channel had telecasted the protest of migrants that had gathered near Bandra railway station on April 14, during which he (Goswami) had raised a question as to why are mob gathering only near mosques during lockdown.

Irfan Shaikh

On which, Goswami stated the police filed the complaint with an intention to harass and silence him.

This is not the first incident multiple such complaints have been filed against Arnab.

Fake news by Arnab

  • Chattisgarh Health Minister registered FIR against Arnab for Palgarh mob lynching and all spreading communal hatred.
  • The video of Arnab mentioning about the attack and the time of the attack stated was misleading.
  • Rajdeep Sardesai claimed that Arnab Goswami lied and used his story about covering Gujarat riots.
  • Recently Aatish Taseer turned down the request to participate in the debate on “Western Media peddling fake news about India.”

Why people like Arnab:

Sad but true, while I was searching for why do people like Arnab in Quora surveys other articles there were no such article or section where people did mentioned why they adore him. My search result kept on showing why people don’t adore him.

But yes there are a few points to really admire:

  • He has given journalism a new form of ranting.
  • He is aggressive, witty, ferocious.
  • His aggressive behaviour attracts people.
  • He knows from where to grab the opportunities for his betterment. For journalism…ahem!ahem!…we will see for that.
  • He has the potential to shout continuously and taunt on the fellow debate participates.
  • Indians love spices in food, entertainment and life. Arnab is giving the spice to the Indian audience.
  • He has the potential to singlehandedly run a news channel and constantly remain at the top of TRP.
  • He plays all the roles, he is the moderator, he is for and against the debate and himself delivers the final verdict.
  • He is an eloquent orator with impeccable fluency.

So the question lies:

  • Where is Arnab wrong?
  • He has rightfully asked questions as a Hindu and as a true Indian then were us the problem?
  • If he is creating communal differences, aren’t we trying to do the same?
  • If he is booked to hurt religious feelings, aren’t there many who do the same?
  • He is able to do so because of we Indians actually love that. The divide and rule policy is nothing new in India, Isn’t it?
