From March 11 to 13 in Karnavati, Gujarat, the Annual Meeting of the Akhil Bhartiya Pratinidhi Sabha (ABPS) of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) was organized. In the annual report, RSS emphasized portraying a correct picture of India’s culture and tradition.
RSS’s annual report emphasizes Indian Culture
The apex decision-making body of RSS, Akhil Bhartiya Pratinidhi Sabha (ABPS) asserted that religious factionalism is being spread in the country in the cover of constitutional rights and religious freedom.
Addressing the Press, RSS Sarkaryavah, Dattatreya Hosabale Ji said, “To strengthen India’s Ideological discourse, it has been decided to make special efforts to make it effective in the coming years.”
He said that a correct picture of India’s Hindu society, culture, history, and way of life should be kept in front of the society. Conspiracy to spread misconceptions about India due to ignorance or intentionally been going on in India and abroad for a long time. By changing this ideological discourse, the correct discourse of understanding India based on facts has to be carried forward.
Further to progress ideological narrative in this direction, Hosabale Ji said, “A lot of people, and not just Sangh members, are presenting their opinion on the issue. They have carried out research, written books; their opinions are published in India and abroad. There is a large section of such people. Through networking and collaboration with them, we shall be able to make India’s narrative dominant in the next three-four years.”
Explaining further, Hosabale Ji said that In India and abroad, there have been efforts, either out of ignorance or deliberate, to spread misunderstanding on the subjects related to India, which has been carried out since the time of the British till all these years.
RSS efforts to change the ideological discourses can be seen in the backdrop of the spread of misinformation and misconception by the fundamental left-liberal forces about India.
RSS’ take on anarchy that is being spread in Indian society
In recent years, there have been constant efforts by these forces to spread misinformation and create anarchy in Indian society. It was seen in anti-CAA protests and farmer’s protests, where, from around the world there was a coordinated effort to spread anarchy with the help of an organised tool kit.
Antonio Gramsci talks about the creation of cultural hegemony through intellectual and moral leadership. The pattern has been followed by the left-liberal forces where they control every discourse of the country and the world. Through the Institutionalized process, they have hijacked the ideological narrative of India and are moulding minds accordingly.
Constant effort by the left-liberal group to derail every reform brought by the government can be seen through it. Be it Triple Talaq, Farm reform or CAA. The narrative about these reforms has been set by these forces and is now controlling every discourse.
To stop the “cultural hegemony” of these groups and to set the ideological narrative of India, RSS has been at the forefront of it. They have established hundreds of schools, colleges, charity organizations etc.
Hosabale Ji’s emphasis on the goal to change the Ideological narrative of India will be critical in coming years. As the International classic liberalism is at work to derail the progress of the country, setting the Indian narrative will help India to grow further in this discourse warfare.
