Rahul said that the Sangh first comes to power by talking about the democratic system and then gets involved in destroying it. Due to the ideology of Sangh, there is discrimination against Dalits and tribals in India. Uproar has started on Rahul’s statement and Vishwa Hindu Parishad has raised the question.
Talking to the media, VHP Joint General Secretary Surendra Jain said that Rahul Gandhi wants to divide the country for his selfishness. He said that Rahul Gandhi’s behavior is like a toolkit member.
Speaking about the Sangh, Jain said that the patriotism of the organization cannot be questioned. The comparison with the Muslim Brotherhood is wrong.
What did Rahul Gandhi say about the Sangh?
During a conversation at Chatham House, a think tank in London, Rahul Gandhi said that the way of democratic competition has completely changed. Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh is behind this. Sangh is a fundamentalist and fascist organization, which has captured all the institutions of India.
He further said that the RSS is built on the lines of the Muslim Brotherhood of Egypt. These people are running a narrative in India that no one can defeat BJP. I want to say that BJP is not going to remain in power forever. Rahul said that press, judiciary, parliament and election commission are all in danger in India.
This is not the first time that Rahul has compared the RSS to the Muslim Brotherhood. Even in 2018, Rahul Gandhi compared the Sangh to the Muslim Brotherhood. At that time, Sangh Pracharak Arun Kumar issued a statement saying that Rahul Gandhi has no idea about our organization.
Why does Rahul repeatedly attack the Sangh?
After the Bharat Jodo Yatra, Rahul Gandhi is continuously attacking the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh. In Haryana, he called the Sangh the ‘Kaurav of the new century’. Now again he has targeted the Sangh. Rahul has accused the Sangh of usurping constitutional institutions many times before.
In such a situation, the question arises that why Rahul Gandhi is attacking the Sangh more than the BJP? Actually, Rahul Gandhi has said in many interviews that this is not a fight to save and remove the government. This is a battle of ideology. The work of deciding the ideology of BJP has been done by the Sangh since the time of Jansangh.
Only the pracharaks of the Sangh are made number two (Organization General Secretary) in BJP. Till now, the background of most of the BJP presidents has also been from the Sangh. In such a situation, in the matter of ideology, Rahul Gandhi targets the Sangh instead of the BJP.
What is the Muslim Brotherhood?
In Egypt in 1928, Sunni leader Hassan al-Banna established the Muslim Brotherhood with the demand of creating an Islamic country. Banna was a teacher and imam in an Egyptian school. At that time, Banna put forward a demand for Islamization of state, economy and society in front of the monarchy, which was turned down. The influence of Western countries in Egypt was in full swing at that time.
After the demand was rejected by the government, a movement was launched in Egypt with the help of Hizb al-Ikhwan al-Muslimeen. It said that Quran is our law and Jihad is the way. To die for the cause of Allah is the goal of all of our lives. This message of Banna spread rapidly throughout Egypt.
In 1940, 5 lakh people joined this organization, after which the government there came into power. During the war with Israel, the Muslim Brotherhood announced its support for Palestine and called the then Egyptian government a fan of the Jews. The Brotherhood did not stop there, it started an internal war in Egypt, after which the government went into action mode.
Many workers were shot dead. Thousands of activists were put behind bars.
The Assassination of the Prime Minister and the Brotherhood on the radar
The year was 1948. Mahmoud Fahmi al-Noqrashi was the Prime Minister under the monarchy. Al-Nukrashi is shot dead. The blame falls on the Muslim Brotherhood. Because the suspected killer who shot was associated with this organization.
After the assassination of the Prime Minister, the Brotherhood comes on the government’s radar. A partial ban is imposed on the Brotherhood. It is only recognized as an Islamic organization and stripped of political recognition.
Hundreds of Muslim Brotherhood activists are killed in the Egyptian operation. In 1949, Hasan al-Banna is also murdered by government agents. There is an uproar throughout Egypt.
The Muslim Brotherhood was banned in 1954
In 1952, the monarchy ended in Egypt and Gamal Abdel Nasser became the country’s president. The Muslim Brotherhood was upset with the military rule. Meanwhile, Brotherhood activist Abdul Munim Abdul Rauf unsuccessfully attempted to kill the President.
Later Al Qaeda and ISIS became terrorist organizations based on this. Qutb was hanged in 1966. Anwar al-Sadat took command of Egypt in the 1970s.
Sadat’s assassination and elections in Egypt
Sadat is assassinated in 1980. The charge was leveled at Al Jihad, which was formed after breaking away from the Brotherhood. After this incident again unrest spread throughout Egypt. In 1984 general elections were announced in Egypt.
In 1984, the Brotherhood entered into an alliance with the Wafad Party. The Brotherhood did not get much benefit in this election. His alliance could win only 65 out of 450 seats. After this, the Brotherhood did not get success in many consecutive elections.
Coup of Mubarak in 2011
Hosni Mubarak won a one-sided victory in the 2010 parliamentary election, but opposition parties accused Mubarak of winning fraudulently. Lakhs of people gathered at Tahrir Square against Mubarak.
The hand of the Brotherhood was said to be behind this movement. Everyone demanded President Hosni Mubarak to leave power. Mubarak initially wanted to control the movement with the help of the army, but later he had to relinquish power.
Al-C-C banned the Brotherhood again. In 2019, the US asked Al-Si-Si to declare the Brotherhood a terrorist organization. The US intelligence agency had claimed in a report that the Brotherhood would break into many parts and work again to spread violence in Egypt.
Now the story of RSS…
Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh was founded in 1925 by Keshav Baliram Hedgewar. The initial objective of the Sangh was to unite the Hindus and give direction to their development. Later, the Sangh made Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam its main mantra.
At present the Sangh has more than 50 lakh swayamsevaks. Its head is called Sarsanghchalak. The Sangh was banned for the first time in 1948 after being named in the assassination of Gandhiji. At that time Sarsanghchalak was Guru Gowalkar.
In 1975 the Sangh was banned for the second time and more than 1300 workers including the then Sangh chief Balasaheb Deoras were arrested.
At the time of Malegaon blast, many Sangh workers were accused of getting the bomb blasted and involved in its conspiracy. ATS had also filed a charge sheet against campaigner Indresh Kumar. However, the Sangh always termed it as a conspiracy.
