There are several ways in which people pay obeisance (namaskar or salutation) to the divine. Various types of h..
Launching his campaign as the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) candidate in East Delhi constituency, Rajmohan Gandhi, grandson of Mahatma Gandhi, attacked Narendra Modi and demanded that he ‘come clean on his election funding and subject himself to media scrutiny on his so-called achievements’. Long an academic in the United States and well-known on the capital’s ‘secular circuit’, Rajmohan Gandhi has never been known for links with ‘Hindu’ causes, yet he was twice handpicked by the Vatican to attend its inter-faith meetings at Assisi.
The meetings were part of the Vatican’s strategy to expand its influence in synergy with the West’s political assault on the Soviet Bloc and Orthodox Church and later on the Islamic world and the People’s Republic of China. Pope Benedict XVI explained that Pope John Paul II had called representatives of world religions to Assisi in October 1986 because the division of the world in “two mutually opposed blocs”, symbolized by the Berlin Wall, threatened peace. However, he said, in 1989, just three years after Assisi, “the wall came down, without bloodshed. Suddenly the vast arsenals that stood behind the wall were no longer significant. They had lost their terror.”
This is an admission that the Vatican moves in tandem with the West’s geo-strategic agenda. Pope John Paul II’s anti-Soviet role via the Polish Solidarity movement is well known; suffice it to say that the CIA and other front organisations poured millions of dollars into the enterprise and the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991.
Today the threat to world peace, according to Pope Benedict, is terrorism, “We know that terrorism is often religiously motivated and that the specifically religious character of the attacks is proposed as a justification for the reckless cruelty that considers itself entitled to discard the rules of morality for the sake of the intended ‘good’. In this case, religion does not serve peace, but is used as justification for violence.” This is a clear reference to Islam. The Pope said the second threat is atheism, an obvious allusion to China.
As Rajmohan Gandhi was selected to attend both meetings, he must “come clean” on his qualifications to represent Hindus at the Vatican and endorse the civilisational conflict unleashed on the non-Christian world. He is clearly part of an insidious anti-Hindu agenda and in this light, his association with the heavily west-funded AAP leadership cannot be accidental.
America’s Ford Foundation, set up by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) to promote its interests all over the world, gives awards to carefully selected opinion-makers, decision-makers, academics and activists to build their social profile. Many leading lights of the AAP and its original Lokpal movement are Ford Foundation-anointed.
Supreme Court lawyer and AAP founding member Ashwini Kumar Upadhyay was dismayed at the party leadership’s possible CIA links and wrote to the Prime Minister and other leaders for a probe into the direct or indirect funding of NGOs in India by foreign agencies. Upadhyay further alleged that money decided the allotment of certain seats in Uttar Pradesh, a charge also made in Punjab.
The charges gained credibility after Aswathy Nair, social worker and AAP candidate from Alappuzha, Kerala, alleged that she was offered inducements to quit the seat. When moved to Kollam without her consent, she quit. Nair alleged that she was offered money, “that too from foreign countries… I was told by one Jackson Peter that I will be offered a good amount for swapping the seat”. The AAP, she added, is worse than some existing parties; there is no inner-party democracy and all decisions are taken by a bunch of leaders.
Former intelligence officer RSN Singh has done an exhaustive analysis of the millions of dollars poured by Ford Foundation into Indian NGOs from 2002; the amounts given to NGOs controlled by Arvind Kejriwal and his associates are staggering. That Kejriwal accepted such sums through unregistered NGOs while in Government service indicates deep-seated protection and as he has indulged in several coloured revolution-style antics in the country, there is need to uncover his unknown godfathers.
The Government of India must also investigate the basis on which foreign agencies engage in ‘head hunting’ in India and dish out the Magsaysay and other awards to favoured wards. RSN Singh has also traced the different routes by which Washington has pushed money into India and into Kejriwal’s NGOs.
A Dutch organisation funded by the Ford Foundation to pass money on to third world countries including India has as its main purpose the manipulation of media in South Asia. Observers have noted a connection between a prominent business house spared by Kejriwal in his anti-big business rants and huge advertisements given to electronic television channels that played up the AAP and its leaders in the run up to the Delhi Assembly poll.
Singh’s research is based on a scrupulous study of the websites of all these organisations, but a thorough investigation by intelligence agencies is warranted to establish if Kejriwal’s amazing overnight metamorphosis as a political leader in Delhi was not the result of calibrated ‘seeding’ via his rich NGOs. Are the impressive crowds that collect in several Indian cities looking for a new leader or are they cleverly funded rent-a-crowds of the kind that overthrew the Nepal monarchy? The matter is worthy of detailed investigation.
Until the AAP core group’s habit of imposing decisions began to be challenged, forcing the fall of the Delhi Government and later causing the resignations of founder members, candidates, and others, psephologist Yogendra Yadav exuded confidence that the party would emerge as a credible substitute to established parties in the general election. He argued that the poor, the scheduled castes, adivasis and Muslims are seeking an alternative to the declining Congress and so the AAP would confront the BJP and Narendra Modi frontally.
Yogendra Yadav insisted that Kejriwal’s challenge to Narendra Modi in Varanasi would not be ‘symbolic’ but would be a serious attempt to defeat the BJP’s prime ministerial nominee. That is easier said than done. Many voters are getting tired of Kejriwal’s stentorian declamations and are wondering why AAP is targetting Narendra Modi with so much hatred when he is not responsible for the corruption, incompetence, and national decay of the past ten years. His silence on Sonia Gandhi and the extra-constitutional National Advisory Council (NAC) speaks volumes about his true allegiance.
