In brief, the RSS claims to own Hinduism, by which they mean they own India. This behaviour is a mark of totalitarian politics, which aims at the complete domination and enslavement of social conscience and individual intellect. Ironically, this was precisely the mode of functioning of the Stalinist system, that they claim to oppose. (It is noteworthy that Ms Uma Bharti cited Karl Marx to justify demonetisation). It is also the mark of the jehadis who claim to know what 'true' Islam is. Totalitarian politics is dynamic - it engages in a constant assault to demoralise individuals; disintegrate all social groups (especially their main target, Hindu society) and standardise the very language and thought-process of society. Its aim is nothing less than the destruction of society; the complete absorption of social life into itself. This is what Alexandre Koyre meant when he described totalitarian regimes as being secret societies established in broad daylight
The RSS seeks to establish a civil religion in India - of which they will be the proprietors - as a step towards a utopia they call Hindu Rashtra. In the process they will destroy freedom of thought and debate, abolish the difference between legal and illegal violence (Ex Gujarat and encounter-accused DIG Vanzara has just been given a 'clean chit'!); and abrogate the Constitution in all but name. Experiments like ordering women to tie raakhis on office colleagues are but small steps in the Great Game. We will resist. DS
Daman and Diu officers save their blushes after rakhis-must order withdrawn
The Daman and Diu administration on Wednesday withdrew a circular that asked women staff to tie rakhis on male colleagues after the order triggered a backlash from employees and was ripped apart on social media. The union territory’s administration was forced to retreat within 24 hours of issuing the circular that made it compulsory for its staff to celebrate Rakshabandhan at workplace.
