Upananda Brahmachari | HENB | Haridwar | Aug 13, 2017:: Some Fatwaist morons in Uttar Pradesh started barking against Indian National Anthem JanaGanaMana-Adhinayak written by Bengali noble laureate Rabindranath Thakur (Tagore).
A day after the UP government made video recording of Independence Day celebrations and the singing of the national anthem compulsory in all madrassas, many Muslim clerics have appealed to community members to “mark the day as patriots, but refrain from singing the national anthem or record videos as they are against Islam”.
Bareilly City Cleric (shehr qazi) Maulana Asjad Raza Khan told TOI on Saturday, “Tagore wrote the national anthem in praise of the then British King George V. According to Islam, our ‘adhinayak’ is god and not George. We do not disrespect national anthem but can’t sing it due to our religious sentiments. Even Rajasthan governor Kalyan Singh had raised objection to the national anthem.”
In July 2015, Singh, at the 26th convocation ceremony of Rajasthan University, had said that Tagore, while writing the national anthem, had praised the “angrezi shaasak (English ruler)” by writing “adhinayak jaya hai”. He had suggested it to be replaced by “jan gan man mangal jaya he”.
Actually, Islamic moronism has no limit, rather uncivilized and barely controversial in many aspects.
Photography, Imaging for medical purposes, videography, using camera-mobile for many essential reasons are now inseparable part in our life. Moron can deny that. Even they can close their eyes under veil just not to see the use of videos in many Govt websites of Islamic countries+. These Muslim clerics use ISIS video footage+ or anti-Indian video speech of Hafiz Sayed+ to infuriate the Muslims against India without any problem; but, they have certain problems with Madrasa videography in I-Day event to only select the best performance for future reference.
May be, these Radical Muslim clerics are being ready to declare Jihad against imagining/videography in many cases related to EPIC/AADHAAR/PAN/BANK PASS BOOKS preparations (Muslims to be allowed without any photo identity cards!) along with Polling and Security checking programmes. We will not spare more time with this issue.
But, what is important here that Muslim fundamentals are now referring a speech of stalwart BJP leader and the present Governor of Rajasthan that he too opposed the word ‘adhinayak’ in the National Anthem.
Actually, many of the otherwise stuffed RSS pracharaks and BJP leaders and workers are not well accustomed to search and know the real history of Bharat if not exhorted by their godfathers living in 1465, Ayachit Rd, Reshim Bagh, Nagpur, Maharashtra 440024 or 10196, D B Gupta Road, Jhandewalan, Delhi – 110055 or 11, Ashoka Road, New Delhi – 110001.
The ‘Adhinayk’ of ‘Jana Gana Mana’ was not King George V at all.
“Jana Gana Mana Adhinayaka” was composed by Rabindranath Tagore on 11 December 1911 and was first sung later in the month on 28th December at the Calcutta session of Congress.
“Jana Gana Mana” was formally adopted as India’s national anthem in 1950.
India’s first President, Dr. Rajendra Prasad, made the following statement in Constituent Assembly on 24th January, 1950:
“There is one matter which has been pending for discussion, namely the question of the National Anthem. At one time it was thought that the matter might be brought up before the House and a decision taken by the House by way of a resolution. But it has been felt that, instead of taking a formal decision by means of a resolution, it is better if I make a statement with regard to the National Anthem. Accordingly, I make this statement.
The composition consisting of the words and music known as Jana Gana Mana is the National Anthem of India, subject to such alterations in the words as the Government may authorise as occasion arises; and the song Vande Mataram, which has played a historic part in the struggle for Indian freedom, shall be honoured equally with Jana Gana Mana and shall have equal status with it. (Applause). I hope this will satisfy the Members.”
[Here we must take an important note for the equal status of Vande Mataram and Jana Gana Mana for Mad Aasaduddin Owaisi, who has been outraging against Vande Matarm since a long time. I will be coming soon in some days with this issue].
But, anti-Tagore brigade or the anti-Bengali brigade tried many times to vilify the National Anthem as it was written in the praise of the then British King!
Not, only Kalyan Singh, the stupids like Amartya Sen also claimed that the ‘adhinayak’ in ‘Jana Gana Mana’ was British King George V. Former Supreme Court judge Markandey Katju also wrote that Jana Gana Mana, which became India’s national anthem in 1950, was “composed and sung as an act of sycophancy” to George V, the only British king-emperor to travel to India. This controversies were also floated by the anti-Tagore brigade in Rabindranath’s life time also.
Controversy shadowed Jana Gana Mana from the day of its first rendition in 1911 at the Congress session in Calcutta.
King George V was scheduled to arrive in the city on 30 December and a section of the Anglo-Indian English press in Calcutta thought – and duly reported – that Tagore’s anthem was a homage to the emperor.
The poet rebutted such claims in a letter written to Pulin Behari Sen in Nov 1939: “I should only insult myself if I cared to answer those who consider me capable of such unbounded stupidity.”
The official report of the Congress session, where Jana Gana Mana was submitted as a patriotic song, and the reports of other local newspapers also countered the criticism of the song’s patriotic credentials.
The Bengali excerpts of that letter of Tagore to Sen as follows:
“…সে বৎসর ভারতসম্রাটের আগমনের আয়োজন চলছিল। রাজসরকারে প্রতিষ্ঠাবান আমার কোনও বন্ধু সম্রাটের জয়গান রচনার জন্যে আমাকে বিশেষ করে অনুরোধ জানিয়েছিলেন। শুনে বিস্মিত হয়েছিলুম, সেই বিস্ময়ের সঙ্গে মনে উত্তাপেরও সঞ্চার হয়েছিল। তারই প্রবল প্রতিক্রিয়ার ধাক্কায় আমি জনগণমন–অধিনায়ক গানে সেই ভারতভাগ্যবিধাতার জয় ঘোষণা করেছি, পতন–অভ্যুদয়–বন্ধুর পন্থায় যুগ–যুগ ধাবিত যাত্রীদের যিনি চিরসারথি, যিনি জনগণের অন্তর্যামী পথপরিচায়ক, সেই যুগযুগান্তরের মানবভাগ্যরথচালক যে পঞ্চম বা ষষ্ঠ কোনো জর্জই কোনক্রমেই হতে পারেন না সে কথা রাজভক্ত বন্ধুও অনুভব করেছিলেন।… “
“…that year the arrangements for the visit of Indian King was in full swing. One of my dignified friend in the King’s Govt requested me to write a song in the praise of King. I was surprised with that request and was fumed as well. As a high reaction of that thrust, I hailed the victory of that Dispenser of India’s destiny who guides, through all rise and fall, the wayfarers, He who knows the striving people’s mind and shows the way through the ages, neither the Fifth nor the Sixth nor any George could be the maker of human destiny through the ages. That my loyalist friend surely perceived my point…” (translation by the writer).
Rabindranath himself summarily rejected the claim that the song was written for the praise of King Geroge V. Actually, it was dedicated to the Almighty God.
The anti-Tagore school to criticize “Jana Gana Mana Adhinayak” must not forget that Rabindranath rejected his knighthood in the protest against bloodiest Jaliwanalabagh massacre by Britishers in 1919.
Actually, if we go to the full length of Jana Gana Mana it can be sounded as the praise of Lord Krishna who navigated the victory of Truth through a Dharma Yudh (war for righteousness) from the driver seat of Arjuna’s chariot.
In the third stanza of Jana Gana Mana, Tagore writes:
পতন-অভ্যুদয়-বন্ধুর-পন্থা, যুগ-যুগ-ধাবিত যাত্রী।
হে চির সারথি, তব রথচক্রে মুখরিত পথ দিন রাত্রি।
দারুণ বিপ্লব-মাঝে, তব শঙ্খধ্বনি বাজে
জন-গণ-পথ-পরিচায়ক জয় হে, ভারত-ভাগ্য-বিধাতা!
জয় হে, জয় হে, জয় হে, জয় জয় জয় জয় হে॥
The way of life is somber as it moves through ups and downs,
But we, the pilgrims, have followed it through ages.
Oh! Eternal Charioteer, the wheels of your chariot
Echo day and night in the path
In the midst of fierce revolution,
Your conch shell sounds.
You save us from fear and misery.
Oh! You who guide the people through torturous path,
Victory be to You, dispenser of the destiny of India!
Victory, victory, victory to You!
Here the eternal charioteer who blows the conch for the revolution of the righteousness to save the Nation is very much resembling to Lord Kirshna, none else.
The wise never fails to understand that Rabindranath portrayed the ‘ভারত-ভাগ্য-বিধাতা’ (Bharato bhagyo bidhata) dispenser of the destiny of India or ‘জন-গণ-মন-অধিনায়ক’ (Jana gana mana adhinayaka) the ruler of the minds of people as “Almighty God” or “Lord Krishna”; not the British King George V at all.
I would like to request the anti-Tagore, anti-Jana Gana Mana or the anti-Bengali lobbies to refrain themselves in a move of self assassination by opposing Rabindranath Tagore or Jana Gana Mana Adhinayak.
Please stand up when you see this full version of Jana Gana Mana in the following video. It purifies our heart and increases patriotism. Say, Vande Mataram. Bharat Mata Ki Jai. Jai Hind. It’s good practice.
