Upananda Brahmachari | HENB | Haridwar | February 14, 2020:: BJP MP (South Bengaluru, Karnataka) Tejasvi Surya, BSP MP from Amroha (UP) Danish Ali, and Former CPM MP from Palakkad (Kerala) MB Rajesh engaged in a panel discussion on the topic ‘Who is misrepresenting Hindutva’ at the Times Now Summit 2020. The Summit was held in Taj Palace in Delhi during 12-13 February. The panel discussion was moderated eloquently by Padmaja Joshi.
‘Hindutva is a need of time to defend Hinduism. Hindutva cannot be dominating because it is the victim of aggression.’ says Tejavi Surya. According to former CPM MP MB Rajesh, ‘Hindutva & Hinduism are not the same’ when he was giving reference from M K Gandhi and Swami Vivekananda. Going out of context, BSP MP from Danish Ali tried to depict Hindutva is a lynching of Muslims and describing Lord Ram as Imam-e-Hind!
Emphasizing on the need for ‘Hindutva’ in modern times for survival of Hinduism, BJP MP Tejasvi Surya on Thursday (February 13) said that the philosophy of Hindutva is the effect of intellectual, political and social response of Hindus against proselytizing Abrahamic faiths to defend Hinduism in its survival struggle.
While speaking on the topic ‘Who is misrepresenting Hindutva?’ during Times Now summit, the young Lok Sabha MP from south Bengaluru said in a clarity that India as a nation was not born on 15 August 1947 and it is a continuing civilization with over thousands years of lived “civilization experience” with all liberal and humane attributes.
“The primary philosophical thought of India was all-inclusive, all-accepting. It was never exclusivist, and most importantly, it never negated the existence and validity of any other philosophical, spiritual and religious thoughts,” Tejasvi said.
However, when the all encompassing India and Indian philosophies came into contact with the Semitic Abrahamic faiths like Christianity and Islam, which inherently are aggressive, exclusivist, conflicting, predatory and proselytizing; it was a dire need for response from Hindus for their survival and existential purpose, he clarified.
Tejasvi’s rebuttal to other Islamist speaker from Samajwadi Party and the Communist speaker from CPIM in the panel was thundered heavily upon the efforts to save their faces through taking help from the pseudo-secular and concocted theories so far delineated by the fraud Congressi and Communist historians and leaders.
On the question of the need for Hindutva in 21st century, the BJP MP said that it was a response from Hindus to preserve their religion from Abrahamic faiths like Christianity and Islam which go to the extent of negating the existence of other faiths as false. Until the proselytizing practices of Abrahamic religions posed as a threat to Hindus and Hinduism (though Tejasvi did not mention the Communist and pseudo-secular forces to harm Hindus by many means), the movement of Hindutva must be in force to protect and preserve the inclusive Indigenous faiths culminated as Sanatan way of life, i.e. Hindu Dharma.
In the introductory speech Tejasvi articulated his ideas about Hinduism and Hindutva in an outstanding manner.
India is a Nation was not born on August 15, 1947. India is a continuing civilization with a millennia old continuity more than a few thousand years of lived civilization experience.
The primary philosophical thought of India was all inclusive all accepting, it was never exclusivist and most importantly, it never negated the existence and validity of any other philosophical, spiritual and religious thoughts.
However, when this land and the philosophies that were born out of this land came in contact with Semitic-Abrhamic faiths like Christianity and Islam, which inherently are exclusivists, which inherently are conflicting, predatory and proselytizing; they were needed to be a response by a non-exclusive inclusive faith which can be called commonwealth of Hindu spiritual traditions.
To, therefore, respond to the aggression, the predation and proselytizing attempts by the Abrhamic faith that came to Indian soil; a response was made by Indians, by Hindus of that time… and that in the later context was called Hindutva.
We can therefore say, If Hinduism is the potential inclusivity of the commonwealth of Indigenous thought; Hindutva can be a kinetic effect which primarily is to defend, Hindutva primarily to defend the Hindu philosophy against what is not inclusive, what are primarily exclusivists.
Hindutva is an intellectual political socio response of the Hindus to prevent itself and themselves against aggression. Therefore, Hindutva cannot be dominating because the Hindutva is the victim of aggression.
Hindutva by its very nature cannot be aggressive. Because the very response of Hindutva emerged to be defensive.
Why did the Hindus of this land had to come up with an intellectual political repose like Hindutva, because unless we examine and scrutinize the very basis of Abrahamic Semitic faiths, which by their very nature are proselytizing, which by their very nature are predatory; which not just that…. by their own nature, even go to the extent of negating the existence of other faiths as false faiths; then we must ask questions as ‘should the Hindu not come up with a response – intellectual, political or otherwise to preserve and perpetuate himself?’
As long as proselytizing religions will continue their existence as proselytizing religions, Hindutva should be there to protect itself and not just protect itself but also protect the values that the Hindu society has perpetually held as sacred and sacrosanct. Those values are in consonance to the modern secular values that the Indian Constitution so dearly upholds.
