Dear Radha Rajan Ji I an understand your concern over my assessment about RSS. But what I have written is a fact. The very fact that no action has been taken against Tarun Vijay, who has been carrying on activities particularly since January 2009, which according to you also, are not conducive to the unity and integrity of India, does indicate that he not only enjoys the support of some to BJP leaders, but he also enjoys support of certain elements in the RSS. ## RSS has to make its stand public on the activities of Tarun Vijay failing which it shall presumed that both the RSS and BJP are working unison and that they have asked Tarun prepare the ground for Kashmir's autonomy/independence.
I am not a supporter of the Congess policies towards the state. In fact, I am a bitter critic. You know it. But it is fact that it was Congress, which had earlier bungled in 1949 by incorporating separatist and communal Article 370 in the Indian Constitution, that between 1953 and 1990 extended hundreds of Central laws to the state. It extended 260 out of 395 Articles of the Indian Constitution. It extended 94 out of the 97 entries in the Union List. It applied 26 out of 47 entries in the concurrent list. Besides, it applied 7 out of the 12 Schedules of the Indian Constitution. Not just this, the Congress in 1965 replaced the nomenclatures of Sadar-e-Riyasat and Wazir-e-Azam with the nomenclatures of Governor and Chief Minister, respectively, to bring the state at par with other states of the Union. It also abolished the permit system. As for the BJP, which ruled India between 1998 and May 2004, it did not extend even a single Central law. On the contrary, it dropped the demand for the abrogation of Article 370. Just look at the 2008 election manifesto under which the party contested the Assembly elections in J&K.
The BJP is the political organ of the RSS. Whatever BJP does, it does in consultation with RSS. That RSS has lost its moorings could be seen from the manner in which L K Advani became the Prime Ministerial candidate, the manner in which the supporter of Afzal Guru, acccused in the Parliament terror attack case, entered the Rajya Sabha on the BJP ticket, and the manner in which Jaswant Singh was taken back by the party, notwithstanding his public statement that he stood by what he wrote in his book on Jinnah, leave alone Tarun Vijay. I do hope Ms Radha Rajan will consider all these facts. Everyone would be pleased with her if she could make the RSS leadership not to tread the dangerous path through Tarun Vijay. Hari Om 22 Aug 2010
