Facts and Fascism

Padmini Arhant

The hierarchy in a society is created by those unable to demonstrate natural ability depriving those whom they fear on merit based performance. Those feared, vilified and isolated are shunned to anonymity while the ones behind the trend as architects and catalysts unabashedly trumpet own name along with genealogy is the norm.

The societal discrimination and prejudice are predominantly culminations of inferiority complex feigned as superiority in self-consolation among those who have nothing to showcase except detrimental attributes and apocalypse. The personal assaults and insinuations in the last decade up until now is a cowardly tactic hiding behind disclaimers and references smothered in contemptuous propaganda deflecting attention from self deceit and destruction, the hallmark of the sources and servile contingency.

The so-called social media platforms reduced to stagnant sewage flooded with venomous ocean aptly representing the swamp and dirty deep state while banning truth and factual data speaks volume on status quo. These developments are typical in a system forged as democracy with zero tolerance to alternative views and participation. The traits suitably reflect fascism not democracy.

There are myriad forces and agents engaged in consolidated efforts to maintain apocalyptic goals with little or no concern for end result experienced thus far. Among them, there are desperations prompting provocations for cheap hall of fame and wanton publicity. The misguided elements and factions hired paying pittance are deployed in vicious misinformation and distortion. Sadly for them, they are the only hope for those in precipitous decline.

Contextually, the rancor reeking in inflammatory remarks and unsubstantiated narratives unveil hidden hypocrisy and platitudes compromising intended purpose. The relentless attacks targeting their contemporary nemesis under the guise of ridiculing India’s freedom movement leader Mahatma Gandhi is the lowest and pathetic in style, substance and nuance.

The so-called educated unemployed youth serving the corrupt political class hideous ideology exploiting religion and social stigma known as the caste system in India is classic degenerative deformed strategy. The casteism premised on privileges to those at the apex of the man made hierarchy and proclivity in alienation of other segments as outcasts and untouchables prevalent until today in a nation heralding seventy five years of independence is a clarion call on long overdue abolition. Yet any mention on the abandonment of the archaic antiquated discriminatory practice is confronted with radical fundamentalist reaction from the supposedly educated creed adopting confrontational approach over rational engagement.

In the contentious caste termination proposal, the brahmins seated highest in the self-designated pyramid are at odds considering the progress and prosperity they continue to enjoy at others’ expense since Independent India secured through hard fought freedom from the colonial British Raj with the legacy of brutality and oppression. The non-violent freedom movement initiated and prolonged under the defiant leadership of the now most hated, abused and caricatured Mahatma Gandhi was the corner stone for liberty, freedom and sovereignty in the oppressed twentieth century. 

The achievement is an astonishing feat on the strength and power of Ahimsa – non-violence not only in Indian history but also a monumental example in world history. In the global arena where weapons not excluding nuclear options are loosely floated to exhibit Superpower status, peaceful resolutions are not desirable in mitigating and resolving crises. The historic events such as independence through non-violence is a rare and often the most challenged position. 

Mahatma Gandhi’s assassin Nathuram Godse, a brahmin in Indian caste identification and a hardline fundamentalist in political alliance with Rashtriya swayamsevak sangh (RSS), the organization seeded and funded by colonial British Raj is defended by brahmins (applicable to only those involved) and political affiliates prioritizing brahmin caste orientation over independence.

The slanderous and preposterous allegations against whether nuanced Mahatma Gandhi or Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi otherwise referred to as the Father of the nation i.e. India is condemnable. The objectionable fictionalized accounts verifiably indicative of the political and social groups subjugation to insidious domestic ideology and foreign influence.

Furthermore, Indian political class and caste abolition resistance recruited online provocateurs in India and overseas associate Mahatma Gandhi with Nazi leader Adolf Hitler with unfounded charges claiming the former as Nazi empathizer and oppressor. The reality is the BJP government controlled and run by Hindutva ideologues RSS as mentioned above is representative of colonial British Raj, the British royal family being the Nazi descendants as Saxe Gotha Coburg having adopted the Windsor title evolving into imperial power.

In semblance with brahmins in Indian caste pyramid, the Jewish politics in Israel maintain close ties and respect Nazi family – the British royal family from Germany. The world’s wealthiest club family – the Rothschild with Jewish profile are intimate with the Nazi clan – the British royal family in Britain.

The Israeli politics ties with Nazi descendant British royal family and inversely irreconcilable differences stalling the Middle East peace process with Palestinians who are not even remotely related to the Nazi’s holocaust is the biggest irony in the global scene. 

Above all, the RSS offshoot BJP along with Congress as well as other political parties in India are heavily invested in caste divisions and sub-divisions adapting colonial divide and conquer policy. They compete with one another in proving their brahmin heritage citing the white cotton thread called Janaeu worn by brahmin males as proof of their brahmin caste though this tradition does not originally belong to brahmins like everything else today witnessed in identity theft and cultural subversion. The practice of wearing cotton thread on their torso was seized from ancient Tamil artisans such as goldsmiths, blacksmiths, textile weavers, carpenters, sculptors…and other experts in different skills not barring poets and scholars renowned for their occupation and talent at that time.

The important factor is none of these skilled members were grouped or classified in any caste system seen in the illegitimate transformation at a later time continued until today. The Tamil custom of wearing white cotton thread on their torso among artisans and various professionals were originally a white flower garland that dried in the hot weather during the day leaving behind a white thread used in making the garland. This white thread was essentially and correctly called punool – pu is flower and nool meaning thread in Tamil. The punool adorned by native Tamil craftsmen and service providers in different occupations relevant to society then were known as parthanars, again a Tamil word meaning the service providers engaged in an array of services to the Tamil community those days prior to the imposition of casteism in Indian society from foreign invaders introducing themselves as Aryans upon arrival in India. The Tamil word parthanar transitioned into parpanars quoted by ignorant political faction in Tamil Nadu – the Dravida Munetra Kazhagam (DMK and ADMK) and the rest following the ignorance chiding the reference brahmins and insisting on the term parpanars as appropriate without realizing the actual origin from indigenous Tamils deceitfully misappropriated to those referring to selves as Aryans in Indian society.

Now these self described Aryans in Indian society are predominantly brahmins and among them those currently preoccupied in Indian political class instigated innuendoes on present Mahatma Gandhi as Adolf Hitler admirer fail to realize their direct link with Nazi leadership Adolf Hitler, an Aryan by race determination and has publicly declared as such to this effect.

The bizarre twist in identity recognition for brahmins in the caste system is on the one hand they claim themselves Aryans by race. The racial definition associate them with publicly known Nazi leader Adolf Hitler in Germany. On the other hand the same brahmins also acknowledge them as Jews of India. The reason behind the latter certification for brahmins is their concentrated power in politics and emphasize the status analogous to Jews dominance in American and western world politics especially United States politicians’ allegiance to Israel instead of United States they are elected to serve under constitutional oath and paid for by U.S. taxpayer.

In the Indian epic Ramayana, the character Ravana – a demon King of Sri Lanka is a brahmin. Not surprisingly, the criticism of Lord Ram in Ramayana persistently emerge from brahmins such as the BJP ruling party’s Rajya Sabha (the upper house) member Subramanian Swamy, a brahmin touting casteism as Vedic inscription, constantly relates to the incident in Ramayana involving Lord Ram and the monkey King Bali, commonly known as Vaali. The BJP member Subramanian Swamy frequently reference the sequence in the epic Ramayana denoting Lord Ram as dishonest whenever the Indian political class scandals are in spotlight.

The flip side of racial connotation in the southern state Tamil Nadu is categorizing Tamilians or Tamils as dravidians, a contrarian characterization based on Tamil Nadu political party Dravida Munetra Kazhagam (DMK) founder non-Tamilian E. Venkata Ramasamy aka Periyar. The indigenous Tamils are not Dravidians as misunderstood by some in India and offshore. The Dravidians are immigrants like Aryans from foreign shores in South, South East, Central and West Asia. They are not Tamils as falsely portrayed and believed until now in Tamil Nadu. The dravida and Dravid community more familiar in the Southern State Karnataka and western state Maharashtra border is imported into Tamil Nadu by Dravida Munetra Kazhagam (DMK) founder E.V.Ramasamy, a native of Karnataka.

There are lot of similarities and congruence between brahmins and Indian political establishment at the center and regional level since brahmins occupy key government positions and preferential status in governments and public sector. Hence they are at great advantage and often instrumental in policy making and planning. They wheel lot of power as administrative functionaries and have direct access in government affairs. The brahmins role in life-threatening discipline like defense force, national guards viz. the border security force and police force is nil or negligible. These fields are generally designated to the lower castes and minorities by default.

Under these circumstances, the social disintegration and disenfranchisement is enforced upon the oppressed and persecuted segments in the superficial caste structure established demoting and degrading the original population Tamils in Tamil Nadu spreading nationwide over a period and worsening in the present time.

The caste system in India is the root of social issues providing the Indian political groups opportunities to polarize society on caste and religion politics. The Hindutva is the decoy to defame the sanctity and spirituality of Saiva (God Shiva) presided path to Soul purification leading to Mukti or freedom from bondage of birth and death cycle. The other aspects of the religion represented by Lord Vishnu and Goddess Durga or Sakti have significant impact on the followers seeking guidance and relief from sorrows and suffering.

Anything proved counterproductive evident in casteism is a burden on society and ultimately dissolved for the greater good and collective benefits rather than selective growth and empowerment. These changes are necessary despite bitter battle opposing the dismantling of caste system and any form of prejudice against anyone related to caste or other religion in the local and national front.
