RSS 3-days ABPS meet concludes at Nagpur passing resolutions on elementary education in mother language, International Yoga Day, special care on migrated Hindus, Ram Temple and Cow protection. 

rssHENB | Nagpur | 15 March 2015:: Akhil Bharatiya Pritinidhi Sabha (ABPS), the highest policy formulating body of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh’s (RSS), on Sunday made a strong issue for elementary education to be in mother language or in state languages recognized in the Constitution. This is necessary for natural learning and to enrich cultural moorings, as ABPS opines.

The three days (13- 15 March) conclave of ABPS concludes today after passing resolutions on elementary education in mother language, International Yoga Day, special care on migrated Hindus and Cow protection.

ABPS also announced its RSS National Office bearers for 2015-2016 season with few changes including electing Shri Suresh Bhaiyyaji Joshi as Sarakaryavah (General Secretary) for the next three years.

RSS Sarasanghachalak Mohan Bhagwat inaugurated RSS 3-day annual meeting of Akhil Bharatiya Pratinidhi Sabha (ABPS), highest body for policy formulation and decision making of Rashtreeya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) at its HQ at Reshimbagh of Nagpur on Friday morning.

More than 1400 Social workers of different walks of life from nook and corners of the country will be participating in the meeting.

RSS Sarakaryavah Suresh Bhaiyyaji Joshi presented the annual report (Prativedan)- 2015 in the very beginning of the conclave on Friday morning.

In this report the present organisation status has been presented with an increasing graph.

Present Status of Sangha Work:-

We had started working on an expansion plan according to the deliberations made in the Akhil Bharteeya Pratinidhi Sabha held at Nagpur in 2012. After three years of continuous efforts satisfactory results have come forward. In comparison to 2012 there has been an increase of 5161 Sthan (place) and 10413 Shakhas (unit). In the same way there has been an increase in the number of Saptahik Milan and Sangh Mandali. According to the report compiled at present there are 51330 Shakhas at 33222 Sthan. 12847 Saptahik Milan and 9008 Sangh Mandali. The number of Shakhas of young students is 6077. We have reached to a total of 55010 Sthan.

For the Dwitiya Varsha Samanya and Vishesh Varga 3531 Swayamsevaks from 2902 Sthan participated in 16 Varga.  In the Tritiya Varsha 709 Swayamsevaks participated from 657 Sthan. In this period in the Prathmik Varga of various Prants there was a good number of representations of trainees from the villages too. In all there were 80409 trainees from 23812 Shakhas,”, the report says.

ABPS passed two resolutions respectively as uploaded in its one affiliate website Samvada.org.

RSS ABPS Resolution-1; RSS welcomes the International Yoga Day.

This resolution refers, “The proclamation by the 69th General Assembly of United Nations to observe June 21st of every year as the International Yoga Day gives countless cheers and immense pride to all the Bharatiyas, people of Bhartiya origin and millions of Yoga practitioners across the globe. It becomes all the more delighting that the proposal for an International Yoga Day moved by the Honourable Prime Minister of Bharat in his UNGA speech on 27thSeptember 2014 received an unprecedented response. Nepal supported it immediately and 175 member states co-sponsored the resolution which was adopted within a short span of less than three months on 11thDecember 2014, by consensus without vote.

The ABPS urges the union and state governments to carry forward this initiative by introducing Yoga as a part of curriculum in education, supporting research in Yoga and make all possible efforts for promoting Yoga in social life.

The Pratinidhi Sabha appeals to all the countrymen including swayamsevaks, people of Bharatiya origin and Yoga followers to endeavor earnestly for spreading Yoga to make the globe happy, healthy and sustainable.”

RSS ABPS passes Resolution-2 : ‘Elementary Education in Mother Language’.

The second resolution renders, “Language is not only the medium of communication but it is also a carrier of culture and value system. Bharat is a multilingual country. All the Bharatiya languages equally reflect national and cultural pride of our country. Although it is a merit to be multilingual but it is scientifically expedient to impart education in mother language for developing the personality. A student educated in mother language can easily grasp other languages as well. A person having elementary education in a foreign language, gets alienated from his surroundings, traditions, culture and values of life, at the same time one also loses his identity, remaining ignorant of ancient knowledge, science and literature.”

RSS MarchThe other Hindutva issues of  importance come in a communicative paper of resolution which include, care on migrated Hindus, Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Temple issue, Indian culture-tradition-thoughts-and-essential-life-style-of-Indians, Goraksha etc. The view of RSS  on these issues was communicated through a press conference on Sunday.

“There is only country India for Hindus all over the world. If helpless Hindus are coming to India, Government should help and give all facilities to them including security”, Shri Suresh Bhaiyyaji Joshi clarified to the press.

Addressing on Ayodhya Ram Janmabhoomi Temple issue, Bhaiyyaji pointed out that, Ram Mandir should be built at the earliest. But, the matter is under jurisdiction of Supreme Court and the result is yet to come. Therefore, there is no point in taking any movement in this connection immediately. We have to honor judiciary.

On the “Goraksha” issue Bhaiyyaji said, RSS stand is clear and we are firm on our stand. There should be security for Gowansh. Government should make strict law and it should be implemented strictly. Whatever may be the government, we can’t change our view in this regard, Bhaiyyaji Joshi added.

Unfortunately, Bhutan also ethnically cleansing native Hindu population. Dalai Lama & Indian Buddhists must protest for this type of injustice.

Bhutan ethnically cleansing native Hindu population

After Srilanka, Bhutan is also running a conspiracy to end the Hindu society there in Bhutan. Now like Muslim majority countries Pakistan and Bangladesh are cleansing Hindus from their country, Buddhist Bhutan has also started cleansing of Hindus. Now it is high time for all Hindus to unite and establish Hindu Rashtra where each and every Hindu can live peacefully and happily ! Considering the Hindu Buddhist traditional Unity Dalai Lama & Indian Buddhists must protest for this type of injustice.

By D P Kafley

In the early 1990s, several thousands of Bhutanese residents in southern Bhutan were ethnically cleansed by the authorities under the provisions of the amended Citizenship Act of 1985, because they followed the Hindu religion and culture, and had mixed Himalayan ethnicity, with one parent of Nepali origin. Nepal, like India, shares common Hindu and Buddhist traditions, but the majority population of Bhutan is exclusively Buddhist and the royal family has unfortunately shown a pronounced sectarian bias towards its Hindu citizens who have been settled there for centuries.

After the purge of the 1990s began, the Bhutanese Hindus have been forced to live in refugee camps set up by the UN High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) in eastern Nepal in 1992. We refugees are insecure and unhappy as we see no future in either land. This bleak prospect forced over 60,000 refugees to reluctantly accept the third country resettlement program offered by the UN and some Western nations, as a result of which they went and settled in eight different countries, but several thousand remain in the refugee camps in Nepal and cling to the hope that someday they may somehow return to Bhutan.

Despite the declaration of democracy in 2008, the kingdom of Bhutan is mired in multi-dimensional problems. Most citizens residing inside the country live in a state of fear and are deprived of basic rights and freedoms, while those living in exile are denied their right to return to their mother country with dignity and honour.

We are challenged on all aspects of our fundamental freedoms and human rights, for instance, the Right to Citizenship. Article 6 of the constitution of Bhutan continues to uphold and enforce the 1985 Citizenship Act which is the foundation for the disenfranchisement of tens of thousands of southern Bhutanese. Because this Act is still in force, over 80,000 southern Bhutanese inside Bhutan and over 100,000 Bhutanese refugees desirous of returning to Bhutan continue to be deprived of their citizenship rights.

Amnesty International in its report, BHUTAN: Forcible Exile, 1994 noted that, “The 1985 Citizenship Act of Bhutan contains a number of vague provisions and appears to have been applied in an arbitrary manner. It also contains provisions which could be used to exclude from citizenship many people who are not the members of the dominant ethnic group, as well as those who oppose government policy by peaceful means”.

The European Parliament in its Resolution adopted on 14 March 1996 also stated that, “Most of the refugees would appear to qualify under international law as being genuine citizens of Bhutan.” The Resolution stated that “Bhutan’s Citizenship Act of 1985 may need to be modified as a result”.

There is thus an urgent need to reform this Act and bring it in conformity with the 1958 Nationality Law and 1977 Citizenship Act, and to restore the citizenship to those who continue to be deprived.

Article 4 and 7 of the Constitution of Bhutan do not acknowledge the existence of cultural diversity in the country, and thus we are denied the Right to equal protection of culture, costume and tradition. The constitution does not guarantee the protection and enjoyment of cultural rights by politically non-dominant communities, as enjoined by Article 27 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights; Article 27 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights; and Article 15 of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights.

We desire that the Languages and Scripts of all linguistic groups in Bhutan be provided with equal amount of attention, protection, promotion and preservation, at par with the dzongkha language of the majority community.

We also demand the Right to equal protection of religion. Article 3 of the constitution states that, “It shall be the responsibility of religious institutions and personalities to promote the spiritual heritage of the country while also ensuring that religion remains separate from politics in Bhutan. Religious institution and personalities shall remain above politics”. Yet the reality is that the Drukpa Kajugpa sect belonging to the king’s tribe continues to get preferential treatment from the government. We feel that other traditional religions such as Nyingmapa (a Buddhist sect) and Hinduism and other denominations should also receive equal protection, promotion, preservation and equal weightage of representation in national constitutional bodies. There should be no persecution of followers of non-recognized faiths.

In this connection, there is a pressing need for the establishment of a national human rights commission in Bhutan to safeguard and guarantee the protection, promotion, preservation and enjoyment of civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights on equal footing by Bhutanese citizens of diverse origins. On the basis of the Paris Principle adopted by the General Assembly resolution 48/134 of 20 December 1993, Bhutan must be pressurized to institute a NHRC vested with competence to promote and protect human rights. Bhutan must also be pressurized to permit the establishment of human rights organizations in the country.

It is also imperative that Bhutan ratify the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights and the optional protocols to consolidate and deepen democracy and human rights in the country.

We the people of southern and eastern Bhutan want the country’s democracy and governance to be made truly inclusive by ensuring our tangible participation and representation in the national polity. Bhutan’s present parliament does not respect the principle of democratic inclusion because the first-ever political election was conducted with a predetermined design to deny participation to over 80,000 southern Bhutanese inside the country and over 100,000 Bhutanese refugees living in UNHCR camps in Nepal and elsewhere.

Over 200 political prisoners still languish in various Bhutanese prisons since the political turmoil began. They must be released unconditionally. At the same time, the authorities must initiate a political dialogue with Bhutanese leaders in exile in order to establish human rights, democracy and permanent peace in the country. Bhutanese refugees keen to return home should be allowed to do so under international supervision and protection. Political parties and human rights groups formed in exile should be recognized and be allowed to function as legal entities in Bhutan.

More importantly, Bhutan should allow an independent international monitoring team to monitor the implementation of 73 out of the 99 recommendations that Bhutan accepted during the 6th session of the Universal Periodic on 18 March 2010.

It is also imperative that the Bhutan government be made to stop the recent offensive moves of erasing the history and culture of Southern Bhutan by changing the names of villages and towns in with terms imported from Tibetan terminology. The original names were in the mother tongue of the southern Bhutanese and have a symbolic importance to the local inhabitants.

Finally, students and scholars from minority communities have been denied the right to education. Southern Bhutan students related to refugees have been denied admission in government-owned educational institutions even if they topped the board examinations. This and other forms of discrimination based on race, region, language, religion and culture must be immediately ended and an inclusive and vibrant democracy established on the basis of human rights and equality and dignity of all citizens.
