MVKamath chastises the pseudo-secularists and then gives in to their "world-view"

In a recent article which has been syndicated here, columnist M V Kamath made very important observations about the sickness of pseudo-secularists. For example:

1. Hiding the bloody and barbaric persecution of Hindus by Islamic and Christian invaders in the past.

2. Running down Hinduism and Hindu culture.

These are important points and deserve compliments as well as attention. But then he turns around and nullifies his own understanding by the following: "We will over come ...but a Good people with an open heart, ready to forget a painful past, ready to work with all people irrespective of their religion, ..."(italics mine). It is necessary to appreciate that it is this philosophy of "Absolute Non-discrimination" which is implied in the quoted text that began the down slide of our great civilization.

We must understand that the failure was not merely political, it was a kind of spiritual-stupidity as well. It is like Mohandas making "Non-violence of the Mohandas kind" the highest principle to owe allegiance to. Hindus are non-violent only in the sense that Lord Krishna was non-violent, where he adjured Arjuna to fight the unrighteousness with military might, and not the meek surrender that Mohandas was advocating for the Jews and the Allied forces during World War II against Hitler's atrocities. For example here:

"I would like you to lay down the arms you have as being useless for saving you or humanity. You will invite Herr Hitler and Signor Mussolini to take what they want of the countries you call your possessions...If these gentlemen choose to occupy your homes, you will vacate them. If they do not give you free passage out, you will allow yourselves, man, woman, and child, to be slaughtered, but you will refuse to owe allegiance to them."


"Hitler," Gandhi said, "killed five million Jews. It is the greatest crime of our time. But the Jews should have offered themselves to the butcher’s knife. They should have thrown themselves into the sea from cliffs... It would have aroused the world and the people of Germany... As it is they succumbed anyway in their millions."

"If I were a Jew and were born in Germany and earned my livelihood there, I would claim Germany as my home even as the tallest Gentile German might, and challenge him to shoot me or cast me in the dungeon; I would refuse to be expelled or to submit to discriminating treatment. And for doing this I should not wait for the fellow Jews to join me in civil resistance, but would have confidence that in the end the rest were bound to follow my example. If one Jew or all the Jews were to accept the prescription here offered, he or they cannot be worse off than now. And suffering voluntarily undergone will bring them an inner strength and joy...the calculated violence of Hitler may even result in a general massacre of the Jews by way of his first answer to the declaration of such hostilities. But if the Jewish mind could be prepared for voluntary suffering, even the massacre I have imagined could be turned into a day of thanksgiving and joy that Jehovah had wrought deliverance of the race even at the hands of the tyrant. For to the God-fearing, death has no terror."

No wonder Mohandas'a grandson, another Mohandasian bigot, commented, what he did. David Lewis Schaefer has rightly termed Mohandas a one-sided-pacifist.

It is very important to completely discredit the hideous philosophy of people like Mohandas. Authors, even when they make good points like Mr. Kamath did, must assiduously guard against inadvertently approving subscription to Absolute Non-discrimination of the confused modern liberal media philosophers.

But for this, MVK's observations are a good beginning towards correcting our folly. If his recommendations imply complete over-haul of history-education specially in schools, which is currently infested with Jawaharian doctored history created by JNU academicians of the Romila Thapar kind, we must all be for it.
