RSS swayamsevaks working relentlessly amidst the Corona crises
The Leftist-Islamist propagandists once again have started their usual cacophony of blaming the Modi government and the RSS for the alleged persecution of Muslims in India. Even the grave crisis like COVID-19 has proved insufficient to invoke their conscience. The crisis of this nature and magnitude requires a shared strategy to mitigate the sufferings of people. But what's surprising is- the so-called intellectuals of the Islamo-Leftists strand are leaving no stone unturned in demeaning the government and demoralising the corona warriors.
India, under the ablest leadership of our Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, has been battling hard to contain the spread of the disease. RSS and its affiliated organizations like Seva Bharti, VanvasiKalyan Ashram, Vishwa Hindu Parishad etc. are working days and nights to lessen the miseries of thousands daily wage labourers, migrant workers and people residing in villages and tribal areas. In this hour of crisis instead of creating confusion and panic, we all need to stand steadfast in our resolve to fight the wretched corona pandemic. Still, certain ill-conceived minds want to find an opportunity to destabilize the government. They have instigated the migrant workers in Delhi and Mumbai, thereby increasing the chances of mass spread of the disease.
These notorious elements have gone on to spread canards about actions taken against Tablighi Jamat Markaz and attacks on doctors, nurses and police personal in Muslim dominated areas of Indore (Madhya Pradesh), Moradabad (Uttar Pradesh) and many other places. The question is, how can we remain oblivious to the treacherous, anti-social and anti-national acts of Tablighi Jamat who defied the government advisory and then the lockdown call given by the central government? How can we not take cognizance of the fact that a lot of foreign nationals who came to India on tourist visa violated rules and participated in religious activities? How can we afford to not trace out the participants at TablighiJamatMarkaz event, the hotspot of corona contagion who pose a danger of spreading the disease in the length and breadth of the country? Is it not a fact the Tablighis-the potential carriers of the coronavirus mixed up with others and went underground have exacerbated the spread of the pandemic? How can we not ensure to give protection to our doctors, nurses and all other health workers and that they are not attacked upon? These are some of the hard questions that these miscreants must be made to answer.
Tablighi Jamaat attendees misbehave with nurses, spit at doctors at Delhi quarantine units
Indian people have rendered these mischievous characters to irrelevance. But they have neither accepted nor reconciled with this fact. Therefore, they mock at people when they clap hands or play utensils or lit lamps or candles to show their gratitude to doctors, nurses, paramedics, ambulance drivers and police personal. They agonise at the fact that from children to the elderly, from most types of the common to VIP, everyone stands united and has faith in Prime Minister Modi's leadership. It’s time for them to realise that particular kind of veto power that they once enjoyed is no more in currency.
Democracy does provide a space for critical scrutiny. But such a thing should not be guided by narrowly conceived selfish strife. We need to understand and appreciate the measures taken by central and state governments that have stopped large scale spread of the disease so far. In the developed countries like the USA, Spain, Italy etc. the danger is looming large. Therefore, we as a society need to stand united in our resolve to fight this crisis. We have a world to fight for once we emerge triumphant in this battle.
