Why is social media an opponent of Gandhi.

Gandhi’s ideas have to be freed from the Gandhian mafia only then Gandhi’s ideas will remain meaningful.

Even after using the internet for about fourteen- fifteen years, I used to stay away from social media. (Facebook,twitter, whats app) The virtual world through social media. About two years ago, I also made my account on social media under pressure from friends. Last year I noticed Gandhi Jayanti, social media is full of jokes,( vulgar jokes) on Gandhi ji. It was amazing to me, it made me think a lot.

MAHATMA GANDHI

Gandhi Ji repeatedly said that my idea is not new. Ahimsa(Non-violence) was not even a new idea, it was just a reflection of the thousand-year tradition of Hinduism. Gandhi’s non-violence philosophy was a link in the series of Hindu philosophy, Gautam Buddha, Mahavir, Swami, Emperor Ashoka,Swami Vivekananda.

“Om. May peace radiate there in the whole sky as well as in the vast ethereal space everywhere.May peace reign all over this earth, in water and all herbs, trees, and creepers.May peace flow over the whole universe.May peace be in the Whole Universe. And may there always exist in all peace and peace alone.Om peace, peace, and peace to us and all beings”! (Translation by Swami Abhedananda, Ramakrishna Vedanta Math, India.)

BUDDHA

“One is not called noble who harms living beings. By not harming living beings one is called noble.”

As I am, so are these.

As are these, so am I.’

Drawing the parallel to yourself,

Neither kill nor get others to kill”.

(Buddha)

MAHAVIRA

“Live and allow others to live; hurt no one; life is dear to all living beings”.

“Kill not, cause no pain. Nonviolence is the greatest religion”.

Mahavir Swami

Swami Vivekananda (addresses at the parliament of religions, Chicago 11th September 1893)

“I AM proud to belong to a religion which has taught the world both tolerance and universal acceptance. We believe not only in universal toleration, but we accept all religions as true. I am proud to belong to a nation which has sheltered the persecuted and the refugees of all religions and all nations of the earth. I am proud to tell you that we have gathered in our bosom the purest remnant of the Israelites, who came to Southern India and took refuge with us in the very year in which their holy temple was shattered to pieces by Roman tyranny. I am proud to belong to the religion which has sheltered and is still fostering the remnant of the grand Zoroastrian nation. I will quote to you, brethren, a few lines from a hymn which I remember to have repeated from my earliest boyhood, which is every day repeated by millions of human beings: “As the different streams having their sources in different paths which men take through different tendencies, various though they appear, crooked or straight, all lead to Thee.”

So was social media opposing thousands of years of Hindu tradition, religion, culture?

Actually, it was not opposition to Gandhi, it was opposed to the fake industry running in the name of Gandhi.

This protest was against the corrupt system running in the name of Gandhi. The corrupt, political opportunists never hesitated to use Gandhi’s miraculous personality for his own benefit while he was alive.

Jawaharlal Nehru, whom Gandhiji described as his political successor while he was alive, cleverly took advantage of Gandhi. Gandhi could never support any murderous government. At the same time, Nehru did not get tired of glorifying assassins Lenin, Mao, Stalin in his books. (The discovery of India, Glimpses of World History) Why these contradictions? Gandhi was against any imperialism, and imperialist ideology, while Nehru was a staunch supporter of communist, imperialist ideology.

This is why Mahatma is called Mahatma, he was a person of big heart, Gandhi did not feel bad about Nehru’s attachment to communist ideology, he said that “Nehru can be communist personally, but he will not impose their thinking, on the party, it is my belief “.It would not be an exaggeration to say that Nehru was a supporter of communist imperialism since 1927.

The third communist international founded in Moscow in March 1919, set itself “the goal of fighting, by every means, even by force of arms, for the overthrow of the international bourgeoisie and the creation of an international Soviet republic”.

At the congress of the people of the East, convened at Baku in 1920 to promote the colonial revolution, delegates excitedly waved swords, daggers, and revolvers, in the air when Zinoviev called on them to wage a jihad against imperialism and capitalism. ( Even today these methods are prevalent among terrorists)

Nehru participated in the conference organized by the Communists in 1927 Brussels, and in the same year, he also went to the Soviet Union.

Nehru wrote the following about that period “We began a new phase in our struggle for freedom in India at about the same time as the October Revolution led by the Great [Lenin]. We admired Lenin whose example influenced us greatly.”

In 1921-22, millions of people died of starvation in the Soviet Union. Another severe famine occurred in 1932-1933. The communist government was solely responsible for this famine. Stalin, the disciple of Lenin, left the farmers and laborers to die in this famine and took full advantage of there deaths. Millions of people were dying on the roadside and Nehru was seen heaven in Russia (Soviet Union).

In fact, Nehru was a clever man who only looked after his own interests. To say that Nehru was also opposed to familyism, but what is the truth?

Glimpses of world history: ———– “Some old inscriptions from south India tell us how the members of the panchayats were elected, their qualifications and disqualifications. If any member did not render accounts of public funds he was disqualified. Another very interesting rule seems to have been that near relatives of members were disqualified from office. How excellent if this could be enforced now in all our councils and assemblies and municipalities.” (Jawaharlal Nehru). It’s easier to preach than really act.

At that time the means of information in India were very limited, due to which Nehru had no problem in playing his dirty game. Nehru used to chant Gandhi’s non-violence among the general public in India, and start chanting Lenin’, Stalin, outside the country or among the intellectuals? (Marxists gang)of the country.

Communists of India were all agents of Russia.

When Stalin ( Hitler) broke the pact and joined Britain and Russia, the Communists of India became opponents of Hitler and allies of Britain overnight.

When the British ruler was trying to crush the nationalist movement with the help of Indian communists, Nehru was trying to reduce the influence of nationalists like Subhash Chandra Bose, Sardar Patel on this occasion.

The family’s relations with Russia remained very cordial, which was later revealed.

Mitrokhin Archive:- also questioned the Prime Minister of India, Smt. Indira Gandhi, about the money transactions and (K.G.B.) role.In 1994. A world-renowned journalist and “Thesis writer on K.G.B YEVGENIA ALBATS” (Wrote Her thesis as a book: THE STATE WITHIN A STATE: THE K.G.B AND ITS HOLD ON RUSSIA-PAST, PRESENT, AND FUTURE)Referring to the files of KGB in this book, it was told that: a letter signed by Viktor chebrikov who replaced Andropov as head of the k.g.b in 1982 noted: the u.s.s.r k.g.b maintains contact with the son of premie- minister[rajiv-gandhi]R. Gandhi expresses deep gratitude for benefits accruing to the prime minister’s family from the commercial dealings of an Indian firm he controls in corporations with soviet foreign trade organizations. R.Gandhi reports confidentially that a substantial portion of the funds obtained through this channel is used to support the party of. R.Gandhi. (K.G.B archive,f.5,OP.6, por.no.12,d.i3i,t.i,1,d. 103-104 ).

Gandhi’s philosophy was disgusted by a family in his selfishness.

Apart from this, the Gandhians’ selected view on Gandhi, and its propagation, also became the biggest enemy of Gandhi’s ideas.

Vivekananda’s ideas had great influence in Mohan Das Karamchand Gandhi’s journey to become a Mahatma. Gandhi’s views on conversion were absolutely the views of Vivekananda.

Vivekananda once said that:-THE LORD HAS DECLARED TO THE HINDU IN HIS INCARNATION AS KRISHNA: “I am in every religion as the thread through a string of pearls. Wherever thou seest extraordinary holiness and extraordinary, power raising and purifying humanity, know thou that I am there.

Science is nothing but the finding of the unity. as soon as science would rich perfect unity, it would stop from further progress, because it would reach the goal. Thus chemistry could not progress, because it would reach the goal. Thus chemistry could not progress farther when it would discover one element out of which all others could be made physics would stop when it would be able to fulfill its services in discovering one energy of which all the others are but manifestations and the science of the religion become perfect when it would discover Him who is the life in a universe of death. Him who is the constant basis of an ever-changing world. one who is the only soul of which all souls are but delusive manifestations. thus is it, through multiplicity and duality , the ultimate unity is reached. religion can go further . this is the goal of all science.

In this way, it has been the tradition of the Indian subcontinent that disagreement, opposition, makes an ideology rich.

A country that had no concern for its honor, had no regrets about losing its land, was indifferent to the slaughter of its people, and all this was going on in the name of Gandhi. The Gandhian academic institutions were, and still are, occupied by neo-Marxists.Gandhi’s ideas that were needed to fight Islamic and communist imperialism had perished in Gandhi’s academic institutions.

It is also difficult to believe that Gandhi’s nonviolence, Lenin, and Stalin’s revolution were taught together in school books even years after the break-up of the Soviet Union, the end of Communism from Eastern Europe. And there was no mention of atrocities committed in the name of the communist revolution.

Gandhi’s ideas have to be freed from the Gandhian mafia only then Gandhi’s ideas will remain meaningful.

Changes over time will also have to be accepted _ which will make Gandhi’s ideas more valuable, Gandhi was opposed to life insurance, against mechanization, Can we make the whole country clothed with spinning yarn, these can be symbolic weapons to fight British imperialism, but today they have some use in fighting communist and Islamic imperialism. We have to accept that Gandhi was against any kind of imperialism, if Gandhi were alive, he would undoubtedly strongly oppose the supporters of imperialism under the guise of non-violence in his name.

Postgraduate in International relations. Experience in writing in various journals, from BBC WORLD NEWS SERVICE to India's one of the oldest hindi daily. I like to write on international relations, religion, religious conflict. Social media has bridged the distance between writing and reading. Now writing is not just the expression of one's own thought, but also knowing the expression of people on various subject.

    1. In my opinion :Only due to Nehru this country could remain secular like before. Only due to Nehru the casteism, that was removed by Jesus 2000 years back was removed from India. Earlier period only people from high societies used to get enlightened. Jesus broken this link and enlightenment of people from lower section of society begun. In India Kabir, Dadu, Meera(women were said to incapable of getting enlightened too), Raidas, Laila and many more.

      1. My knowledge on this subject is very limited, I have only read Kabir and Raidas, so I cannot say anything, I hope you will continue to tell similar informative things in the future.

      2. Thanks for your kindness towards an unknown person like me. May Gods bless you with enlightenment ‘in this life itself’. It is going to happen in 2000years or 5000years but surely it will happen. God has eternity in store to wait for willingness of person. The matter is only that ‘is in this life I am giving enough try to achieve it?’. It happens on its own, so we can only try but every effort remains with us forever ie शुभ लाभ. शुभ वही जो मरने के बाद भी साथ रहे।
        I have little understanding but I can suggest that you can begin with those mystics that you are well versed with. I added one of my favourite to the list.
        Osho on Kabir in Hindi:
        सुनो भई साधो, कस्तूरी कुंडल बसै, कहे कबीर दीवाना, मेरा मुझमें कुछ नहीं, गूँगे केरी सर्करा, कहे कबीर मैं पूरा पाया, होनी होय सो होय.
        On Raidas :
        मन ही पूजा मन ही धूप।
        On Gorakhnath:
        मरो हे जोगी मरो, (मरो मरण है मीठा)

    2. Thanks a lot for taking the time to read the post
      Many secrets that are kept in the museum of Kgb in Moscow, if it comes out to the world, then you can get very shocking results.

      1. If they came to you, then they already came to the world also!
        We are simple people, we see that to save old cows-young people were killed, still export of beef is growing. In the name of development, forests preserved till date (by Nehru family) are handed over to private parties, sold government institutions while we were told that money is laying in Swiss Bank- this is your Swiss bank.
        Same will happen with KGB too, secret lies in new type of communism rising in India-Hindutva manuwadi communism based on 2000 year old system of cast.

  1. Thanks Nitinji, for your very educative writeup on the life of Mahatma Gandhi!Let us remember our two great leaders Mahatma Gandhi & Lal Bahadur Shastri on their birth anniversaries today for their immense contribution to the nation.🙌

      1. चौहान जी , भगवान आप को लम्बी उम्र दे। बिल्कुल भगवान् ने आप को बहुत लम्बी उम्र दी है । दो महीने तक खराब computer जो agency से दो दिन पहले मिला । आज सुबह ही आपको लिखने की सोच रहा था कि आपकी पोस्ट मिली । 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏 आपके सहयोग और समर्थन के लिए शब्द नहीं हैं, मैं खुद भी आपका ब्लॉग देखने को बहुत उत्सुक हूँ । उम्मीद करता हूँ की आपकी पोस्ट हर बार की तरह knowledge से भरपूर होगी । नवरात्रि पर्व की आपको और परिवार को बहुत बहुत बधाइयाँ और शुभकामनाएं 🙏🙏🙏🙏

      2. Happy Navratri to you and yr family alongwith all the hearty wishes. Actually I am not a person to find any petty issues as such: only that I care about my close friends such as you❤

      3. NAMASKAR ,
        There was a problem with my computer, I was sorry for the late answer
        Thanks for your reply and reading
        Your post in detail on Madhya Pradesh, [best as always],

        The post you have written on South India is amazing, I have visited South India many times, but I had no information about Vishwanatham Temple.
        It would have been better if you had gone to Vijyanagaram in your journey to South India, there is not much information about Vijiayangaram in North India, through you, more people would get to know about Vijayanagaram from your excellent writing style.

      4. Nitin Singhji, I like your attitude of being very much thorough about details of any destination as this is very much desirable of a writer to post authentic information related to the place!Thanks a lot Sir!I am sorry for problem in your computer though it it is so normal thing to happen.Take yr time

    1. thanks chauhan ji,
      Chauhan ji thank you very much for taking the time to read the post and give valuable advice.
      Completely agree with you, a person like Lal Bahadur Shastri ji cannot be forgotten.
      there was some problem in my computer, for this reason I could not write the post as per my wish.
      I thought write posts on both, Gandhi ji, and Lal Bahadur Shastri ji I from Benaras, so I got chance to know Shastri’s thoughts closely but computer problems turned it over. In some way I was able to complete a post, I will write in detail on Shastri ji when I get the time ahead.
      JAI JAVAN , JAI KISAN

      1. Nitinji ,that was no issue as such !I am sorry if you realized it as an error !I was trying to add to your writeup only as I could not single out one person when the birth anniversaries of both fell on the same day !You can as well elaborate on the great life of Lal Bahadur Shastri in near future. No issue Sir !

    1. indira hope you well ,there was a problem with my computer, I was sorry for the late answer
      Thanks for your reply and reading.Totally agree with your views. Gandhiji’s interpretation in today’s context is the need

  2. I think I’m a member of every social media, but I barely do anything there other than privately talk to friends.
    I love the rest of the article. I got no religion, but I agree with the things that were said here. Gandhi is one of the people I admired.

    1. Why India accepted everyone? We look at the possibility of a human being, and destiny of everyone is same ie enlightenment. Then all are going to fall in God some day, that too any moment.
      Kabir said :
      काला नाला, हिम जल, सो फिर पानी होई।
      जो पानी मोती भया, सो फिर नीर ना होई॥
      Muddy or black water and snow all are water only but once a drop of water turns into a Pearl, then it leaves the cycle for ever. Pearl is used as a metaphor for Enlightenment of a human being, because the process is very similar.

      1. काला नाला, हिम जल, सो फिर पानी होई।
        जो पानी मोती भया, सो फिर नीर ना होई॥
        Muddy or black water and snow all are water only but once a drop of water turns into a Pearl, then it leaves the cycle for ever. Pearl is used as a metaphor for Enlightenment of a human being, because the process is very similar.

        You a very intelligent person, in very few words, such a wonderful thing explained with an example, thank you very much.

    2. Once enlightened the person is given responsibility to serve as master for all others and free them from the cycle too. Just like it happens in film ‘Kung-fu Panda-1’.

      1. कबीर ने कहा है, गुरु कृपा से मैं सिर्फ़ निमित्त मात्र हूँ आप तक उनकी बात पहुँचे इसका।

  3. Why India accepted everyone? We look at the possibility of a human being, and destiny of everyone is same ie enlightenment. Then all are going to fall in God some day, that too any moment.

  4. I wish to put my opinion and OSHO’s forecast with regard to these two statements
    …Nehru was a staunch supporter of communist, imperialist ideology.
    … Communists of India were all agents of Russia.

    Familyism or imperialism of a certain circles of traditional families is OK in India. These families try best to stop familyism or imperialism of any new family with new thoughts. Every city has thousands of such examples be it in business, politics, films, business, art, medicine, engineering etc.
    OSHO predicted that whenever Communism will setup its roots in India, it will be in the form of ‘Manuwaad’ otherwise there is no possibility of it in India.
    However he was supporter of communism only for its atheist approach. Communism believes in no-God philosophy which is better because saying yes to any God without experiencing is deceiving the self, then the inner journey will never begin. Osho was against all other aspects of communism as it stands on equality by cutting roots of intelligent peoples. For that they can legally use violence of any type against them. This is where Manuwaad and communism seems meeting but actually Manuwadi people too do not believe in God, from their heart, just show others for making profit- God is their business.

    1. There was a problem with my computer, I was sorry for the late answer
      Thanks for your reply and reading
      I completely agree with you, OSHO was a great philosopher and thinker, let me know his thoughts through you.

      1. As per my little experience in this infinite and never ending spiritual journey I can only suggest you what helped me. It may not work for you but will sure encourage you to take first easiest step at least. Mahavir said that the beginning is the most difficult. Lao Tzu said that journey of 1000 miles begines with first step. He even says that then all are just repetition so not to be counted. So journey finishes in second step-the last. He surprises that after these two steps you find yourself there only from you begin but you got transformed into a totally new person like you have given birth (dwij) to yourself. So it is a path less path, you travel and reach, but bodily you remain there only the inner gets transformed.
        Osho on Kabir in Hindi:
        सुनो भई साधो, कस्तूरी कुंडल बसै, कहे कबीर दीवाना, मेरा मुझमें कुछ नहीं, गूँगे केरी सर्करा, कहे कबीर मैं पूरा पाया, होनी होय सो होय.
        On Raidas :
        मन ही पूजा मन ही धूप।
        On Gorakhnath:
        मरो हे जोगी मरो, (मरो मरण है मीठा)
        It is my intuition that now only OSHO disciples are getting enlightened but it is very difficult to recognise them because they live very ordinary life. I trust that my visit to Allahabad Kumbh in 2012 showered blessings of some mystic there. Jesus said that God throws the net like a fisherman and only those worth eating are chosen and rest thrown into the river again. So not only it is important that one is trying hard in spiritual journey, some living mystic must shower his blessings too. OSHO foundation, Pune is such place for OSHO disciples where both, new disciples and enlightened ones, meets and enlightened one chooses the one who is putting in sincere efforts.
        My favourite meditation that changed my life and lead to explore spiritual journey parallel to job, family (including independent parents), serving society and raising kids.
        My favourite meditation that I am practicing last 35 years is Awareness/Mindfulness Meditation during brushing my teeth. Earlier it was a robotic act and I used to think about past or future act/activity/instances etc. By being totally aware during brushing feeling it’s abrasion on every tooth, coupled with sensation of paste etc all thoughts slowly got dissolved and only present moment remained. Miraculous it is, as it engrossed all my activities over the period of time.

  5. Ahimsa is very good idea and I wish everyone and every country can have a peace. Thank you for your educational post and following Suitcase Travel blog! Have a great weekend!

  6. Wow very well written

    I think everyone (even Social media abusers, troll army) admires and believes in gandhi ji ideology ….But they don’t like the role of Gandhi ji during partition of India 😃

    Also one family tried their best to represent gandhi ji as their own family member …..

    उत्कृष्ट लेख

  7. A good article on your thoughts and beliefs, including the history. Thank you for stopping by my site and if you ever have questions about my beliefs I would be glad to answer the best I can.

  8. From my travels though the temples of South India this past March in South India. I observe the non – violent ideals of Gandhi remain alive and well.
