DR S P MUKHERJEE, THE RESPLENDENT LAMP OF FEARLESS HINDU NATIONALISM- A movement of alternative Politics in India
Dr.Shyama Prasad Mukherjee was the only Indian political leader in the India of 1950 to clearly see through the dastardly Islamic Game of Hindu Genocide which the Government of Pakistan under Muhhamed Ali Jinnah was letting loose against the Hindus of East Pakistan (East Bengal or today’s Bangladesh). Sri J LNehru had nothing but hatred and contempt for the pitiable and helpless Hindus of East Bengal. The only stupid advice he could give the Hindus of East Bengal at that time was to stay back in their traditional homes and lands in East Bengal and get slaughtered by murderous Muslims of East Bengal. Totally shaken up and traumatized by this disastrous policy of Muslim Appeasement, Dr.Shyama Prasad Mukherjee felt morally and totally constrained to resign from the position of Cabinet Minister in the wholly pro-Islamic, Evangelical and anti-Hindu Government of Sri Jawaharlal Nehru in April 1950.
On 21 October, 1951, after a long and detailed discussion with Sri Guruji Madhav Sadashiv Golwalkar, Leader of the RSS, Dr Shyama Prasad Mukherjee founded ‘Bharatiya Jan Sangh’ (Indian People’s Union) at Delhi and became its first president.
Dr Shyama Prasad Mukherjee, with his legal background, also strongly advocated a Uniform Civil Code for both Hindus and Muslims. He wanted a ban on cow slaughter. He pointed out the paramount political necessity of ending the special status of Muslim majority Jammu and Kashmir in the larger interest of India’s integrity and national unity. Dr Shyama Prasad Mukherjee defined the contours of the Hindutva agenda which later became the wider political expression of India’s Hindu majority in the 1990s. Sri Deen Dayal Upadyaya, Sri Atal Bihari Vajpayee, Sri L K Advani and several other latter-day BJP stalwarts were inspired by the personality and example of Dr Shyama Prasad Mukherjee.
In the 1952 general elections to the Parliament of India, Dr Shyama Prasad Mukherjee and the BJS won 3 seats. When he was proceeding to Kashmir in 1953 in order to go on a hunger strike on reaching there to protest against the law prohibiting any Indian citizen from settling in that State (which was in their own country) and the need to carry I D cards, he was arrested on 11 May, 1953 while crossing the Jammu & Kashmir-India border. Although the I D card rule was revoked on account of his efforts, he died as a political detenu on 23 May, 1953. Even before he had set out from Delhi, Sri Guruji Golwalkar had advised him not to go to Jammu & Kashmir and warned him about the possibility of his not returning back alive from Kashmir. Sri Guruji had also sent a letter to the same effect through a special messenger which failed to reach him on time. According to many well-informed people, he was politically assassinated with the full political blessings, knowledge, understanding and opaque involvement of Sheik Abdullah and Pundit Jawaharlal Nehru.
At a time when all the Congress leaders including Pundit Nehru found themselves in the mire of triple ‘secular’ synchronisation, conceptual confusion, political incompetence and human failure to deal with the Muslim problem in India, Dr Shyama Prasad Mukherjee spoke these prophetic words in his last speech in Parliament on 15 November, 1952:
‘I remember I saw a number of Congress leaders and especially Gandhiji and some of us begged of him to appreciate the real point of view whether it will be possible for the minorities to live in Pakistan, in view of the circumstances under which that new country was taking its birth. AND WE SUGGESTED A PLANNED EXCHANGE OF POPULATION AND PROPERTY AT GOVERNMENTAL LEVEL AS PART OF THE PARTITION SCHEME. He was not willing to accept it because their view point was that what they were agreeing to was not a communal division of India, but a territorial division of India’.
Today we are having not only a communal division but also a territorial division of votebank politics in every State in India today. In 1947 we were dealing with only one unreasonable and irresponsible statesman like Jinnah. Today we are constrained to deal with hundreds of self-proclaiming Islamic Terrorist ‘Jinnahs’ not knowing what they want and not allowing anybody else also to understand what they want. If only our countrymen had listened to the advice of Dr Shyama Prasad Mukherjee at that time, there would have been no problem whatsoever between Hindus and Muslims either in Pakistan or in India after 1947.
