Anna, am sorry, i disagreePosted: April 18, 2011
I hereby declare that I withdraw my support to Anna hazare movement as my disagreement with its members and agendas reached a peak. First one was I saw Agnivesh, a well known maoist sympathiser, I was very disappointed to see him sharing dias with Kiran bedi and Anna. I did not lose my faith on Anna, even after I saw these trojans like him, mallika sarabhai, and medha using the stage for their political and communal agendas. I can tolerate anything , but the Insult of my motherland for me is like insulting my mother.. the latest news was like a shock to me…
This was the original image that was in the background set-up of the stage erected at Jantar Mantar on which Hazare was lying on a fast-unto-death for the Jan Lokpal Bill. Millions participated in the movement and no one had the problem with this image, now those “women activists” who represent us has problms and issues with this ? let us examine what are the issues ?
According to the sources :
The movement leaders decided to give a secular character to the logo
Some civil society members were uneasy on displaying an image which is identified as a Hindu religious symbol.
Bharat Mata is considered to be an incarnation of Devi Durga.
Women activists like Kavita Krishnan, Nandini Ojha and others raised the issue and requested the movement leaders to replace the image.
It did not take long for the leaders to agree to replace the image.
#1 Implies Bharatmata is not secular, what they mean is that there is some “Hindu” thing in it. And they make it clear that in point #3 that Bharat Mata is considered to be an incarnation of Devi Durga. Now what is there in India which Hindus do not have claim to ? Every thing and every image which is Indian Belong to Hindus, their culture and their History ? In order to Bring Hindus to the national movement to revolt against the forign rule, Bankim Chandra Chatterji compared Ma durga, which billions of Hindus revere the most, to motherland. Hence they participated in millions and later it was pictorially represented as Bharatmata by nationalist organisation like RSS.Question ariss that Why should a minority belief should be an obstacle to bring an overwhelming majority belief ?
This is the most popular picture used by various nationalist organisations for Bharatmata. The back drop to the Mata’s image is Akhandh Bharat which is still the dream of millions of this nation. But here anna hazare was diplomatic from the beginning he did not use this image, but tried a different one without compromising the concept..He “updated” the logo by an image of Bharat Mata encircled by the map of India. Now where is the problem ? To satisfy “secularists” he compromised the seat of Bharatma, ie lion and also replaced “Bhagva” dwaj with Indian Tricolor.
Now #5 and #4 is an utter loser atittude shown by the Anna hazare team, the millions who supported this anti corruption drive led by the what they called the Anna Phenomenon never even had a talk about the back ground image. Who are these civil society representatives who tend to falsely represent us ? We the youth and citizens of India have no problem with the image ? I was quite amazed to know that #5 It did not take long for the leaders to agree to replace the image. Is anna Hazare and his entire team so prone to be brainwashed or misled by the trojans sorrounding him ?
Now What if they replaced the image of Bharat Mata encircled by the map of India with the map encircled by Tiranga. ? Will it make less “communal” and more “secular” ?
Not so long ago, we saw the tiranga yathra, being SUCCUSFULLY stopped at Jammu and Kashmir because the Govt, both central and state, said it is a communal agenda by the BJP. Now is Tiranga “secular” ? Just asking a doubt !!
We are living in a false notion of secularism where in anything and everything connected to native faith (Hindu) is seen as communal. This atittude will not lead us anywhere. And time has come for youth to take charge and proudly proclaim they are Hindus and everyone in India are Hindus. If not, The neo mughals, and neo british are waiting to rule and ruin our Bharat Again…!!
A few words to Anna hazare whom I still respect a lot, “ I am sorry, Anna ji, I love you, I know you are helpless,I disagree with you on the issue of Bharatmata image, but I can not stand at a place where my mother and motherland gets insulted, you may fight corruption without my litlle support, and you must, thank you”
