RSS had no role in freedom movement: Siddaramaiah

Bagalkot (Karnataka) Sep 28 (IANS): Continuing attack on the BJP and the RSS, Karnataka Opposition leader Siddaramaiah on Tuesday said that the country got Independence because of the efforts of Mahatma Gandhi and former Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru, and not the RSS.

He further questioned, "Did Godse (Nathuram Godse who killed Mahatma Gandhi) win freedom for us, and did Savarkar (Veer Savarkar) win Independence for the country?"

Siddaramaiah further asked, "Did anyone from the RSS or the BJP die or sacrificed their life for the freedom of India? The people in BJP do not know history."

He defended his earlier statement of equating Taliban with the RSS and the BJP, saying whoever does not believe in humanity is Taliban. The BJP and the RSS do not have faith in humanism. They do not believe in the democratic values. They don't even respect the constitution. Since they do not rule according to the principles of the constitution they are called Talibanis and those having the culture of Hitler.

Earlier, Siddaramaiah had chided the RSS cadre as 'chaddis' (shorts, referring to the short pants worn by RSS cadre) on Sunday. Even he described BJP and RSS leaders as monstrous.

Hitting back, BJP National General Secretary and MLA C.T. Ravi said that Siddaramaiah is a liar. Due to the age factor, he is blinded to certain things and he needs treatment. "If Taliban was supposed to be in power, he would have been hanging on a pole by this time," he said.

Home Minister Araga Jnanendra said, if he could not differentiate between the Taliban and the BJP, he does not wish to comment on it. "Siddaramaiah is a leader of Opposition who wants to say a few things. It is clear that he is not able to digest the good work done by the BJP in Karnataka," he said.

    Neither did Tipu Sultan. Tipu Sultan apologists in Congress should be ashamed of themselves.

    Siddu is a spent force within party and no one is bothered about him, hence he's making these nonsensical statements just to be in lime light. Ignore his Fake Narratives.

    RSS & All Hindu organizations were founded/managed/controlled by upper class Hindus Who actively participated in untouchability and never wanted to mix/touch with British educated & cosmopolitan Hindus. Congress party was founded by Dr. Anne Besant, A.O. Hume and other Christian leaders and Congress party got grater support from Indian Parsi community, Muslim community & British and Christian educated cosmopolitan Hindus like Motilal Nehru, Gandhi, Patel, Bose etc,. Hindus due to high cast religious reasons never participated in violent struggle or mixed with meet eating western educated people of all communities. Dalits and lower cast Hindus participated in freedom struggle as foot solders. Leadership, Control & active participation in Freedom struggle was done by mostly minorities (Comparing to the total number of minorities population it is a large number) Upper cast Hindus worked under British & Maharajas as book keepers and vasuli (tax) collectors. Credit for getting Independence Goes to Congress party & its members Who were mostly from minority community that includes Parsis, Christians, Muslims, Sikhs and British & western educated cosmopolitan Hindus.

    Independence was not achieved by the Nehru family, there are millions of Indian who had sacrificed their life to achieve it. Who is Sidharamaiah to talk about Indepence struggle, he was not original Congress member, secondly he is not a son of a person who sacrificed his lifeduring the independence struggle. He is number one corrupt and a politician who has been discarded from his own home constituency. Using his caste calculation he managed to scrap from Badami.
