National heroes play a very passionate and powerful role in making the soil of any country proud and strengthening national unity and giving immortality to the entire nation. Mohan Bhagwat, despite being the Sarsangh Chalak of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, has consistently emphasized the culture and principles of India's Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam and Sarva Dharma Sambhav. The life-vision of the Sangh has been comprehensive and all-encompassing.
The message of this vision is the statement given by Bhagwat in the context of Gyanvapi. Shri Bhagwat has clarified that the Sangh has no intention of starting any new movement on the issue of Gyanvapi area of Kashi and this issue should be resolved only on the basis of the evidence placed before the court, which is understood by both Hindu and Muslim parties. Should accept and contribute to maintaining social harmony – this is a completely nationalist statement that every liberal secularist would agree with.
These days, efforts are being made to spread communalism in the country regarding the temples and mosques of India. Bhagwat has asked a question in the context of wider national interest that why to find Shivling in every temple? He has clarified that Islam came to India through invaders. The invaders destroyed Hindu temples so that the morale of the Hindus who got rid of their attacks on this country could fall. There are thousands of such temples across the country. Therefore, today there is talk of re-establishing the identity of such temples in India, which have special Hindu prestige or belief in the hearts of the people. Hindus are not against Muslims. The ancestors of Muslims were also Hindus. But it is also unfair to take up the matter of a new temple-mosque every day. Why should we escalate the fight? In the matter of Gyanvapi, our faith has been running from tradition. We have been doing this, that is fine.
The latest statement given by Bhagwat for Gyanvapi is very important, to awaken the sense of responsibility towards the nation and is inspired by the sense of nationalism. He says that such disputes should be resolved by mutual consent and if they go to court, then whatever decision comes, it should be accepted by all. In fact, this is the logical and just way to resolve such disputes and by following this path, national unity can be strengthened by emphasizing the atmosphere of peace and harmony.
Mohan Bhagwat also made it clear that now the RSS is not going to do any agitation for a temple like it did for the Ram Janmabhoomi temple in Ayodhya. This statement of his is notable because these days the issue of Shri Krishna Janmasthan complex of Mathura is also on the surface along with the Gyanvapi complex of Kashi and also of Quwwat-ul-Islam mosque of Delhi, where it is written on the inscription itself that it has been written by many Hindu and Jain temples were built by demolishing them. In the past, in the communal frenzy, frantic rulers and narrow-radical forces made many successful attempts to crush the Hindu culture.
Whereas the culture of India has been of all-religion equanimity, beyond such narrow and communal thinking. In which people believe in the worship of their respective religion, there was no evil. But today, where people of one community spread hatred towards another, the soil of the country is tarnished, the nation becomes powerless and the mind of the individual becomes impure.
Anti-social, fundamentalist and narrow elements have a hand in increasing the communal frenzy, sometimes so-called political parties and religious leaders also add fuel to this fire. But the Sangh has always shown generosity. It is clear from the statement of the Sangh chief that India belongs to both Hindus and Muslims, but both should respect each other's feelings which reflect their identity. Kashi is considered to be the oldest city in the world and Hindus of this country believe that it was composed by Bhole Shankar himself, so Muslims should also come forward and leave their retreat and accept that Kashi is the only place for Hindus as Muslim for Kaaba.
Because Sanatan Dharma has been going on in this country since time immemorial, then every particle of India has its symbols which are very natural. Certainly Hindu religious scriptures have been composed in this country, in which various special places are described and by combining them the country of India has been formed. Therefore, the whole country should meditate on the words of the Sangh chief, establish coordination in ideological differences and have full faith in the constitution of the country.
Sarsangh Chalak Shri Bhagwat made it clear in his speech given in the conference of the Special Officers of the Sangh in Nagpur that Muslims also belong to this country and their ancestors were also Hindus. He accepted Islam for some reason and adopted a different worship system. Therefore, any kind of enmity with them is not justified. Along with this, giving a very important message, Shri Bhagwat also warned the entire Hindu society that they should not talk about finding Shankar or Shivling in every mosque. The reality will remain that the Muslim invader kings attacked the temples and also destroyed them to establish the credibility of their power.
It is not relevant to pollute the present with the mistakes of the past. Hinduism has been liberal, in fact Hindu is a way of life, which has given place to all rituals. This is the reason why in Indian homes you will find countless families whose members are some Aryasamaji, some Sanatani, some Jain, some Radhasoami, some Ramsanehi and some Krishna Bhakta. There are also examples to be seen that in Jain and Hindu families, Sikhs, Christians and people following Islam live with common faith and reverence. They all follow their respective sects reverently but there is no quarrel between them. Today such a person needs elements to connect with human beings. But because of the idiosyncratic and fundamentalist thinking of some people, Hindus and Muslims are seen fighting, and then the whole Kashmir is burning in the fire of such parochialism.
Sometimes in West Bengal and sometimes in Rajasthan also such visual instability and disturbance causes. Neighboring countries take advantage of this. Today there is a need to connect human beings, to connect them, love is needed, compassion is needed, and the attitude to understand each other is needed. These human qualities have disappeared today and due to this a wide gap has arisen between men and man, the common culture of India has collapsed.
It is possible that some Hindu organizations may disagree with Bhagwat's views, but it is not right for him to campaign without any solid claim for the return of every temple destroyed by foreign invaders and to break the unity and integrity of the country. Instead they should take recourse to the law. At the same time, one should not expect the Hindu society to easily forget the destruction of its major temples like Gyanvapi and Mathura, because it is seen with the naked eye that mosques were built there by demolishing these temples. Muslim society is also aware of this bitter truth and it should not turn its back on it. Therefore, be it the Gyanvapi Mosque of Kashi or the Shahi Idgah of Mathura, they remind the Hindu society of the barbarism of the idol-breaking invaders.
It is sad to see that some Muslim leaders are busy praising Aurangzeb, who caused havoc in Gyanvapi of Kashi and also in Shri Krishna Janmasthan Temple in Mathura. The way to rectify the mistakes of the past, instead of conflict and violence, anarchy, hatred and unrest on the streets, should be found legally through law, this will be appropriate for the unity and peace of the country
