Vande Mataram from Bankim Chandra Chattopadyaya’s “Anand Mutt” is India’s national song.
The Song sung by Lata Mangeshkar (Music Director Hemant Kumar Mukhopadyaya) is captured here:
“Vande Mataram” was the Mantra, reciting which numerous Indians from Punjab to Tamilnadu braved death and fought the Christian British occupation. Composed in simple Sanskrit, this is a national song of India and any day most nationalist Indians rate this song above “Jana Gana Mana”, a song penned by Tagore welcoming British King George as “Bharata Bhagya Vidhaata-Arbitrator of India’s Destiny”.
The Islamist veto and Jawarhalal Nehru’s appeasement of islamism & Christian upbringing prevented “Vande Matharam” from becoming the National Anthem of India. And in a remarkable parody of History, Indians have a song, sung first welcoming a foreign dignitary, as the national anthem. Nehru as the first prime minister of India did enormous damage to the soul of India. Nehru’s footprints can be seen in most of India’s social, economic, defence and foreign affairs problems.
One cannot help noticing the superiority of this composition of “Vande Mataram”, the complete one, to the subsequent subversion efforts (subverted islamised one) by the likes of Slumdog A R Rehman, which in comparison to the original version appear trite. Later compositions on account of composer’s poor knowledge of Sanskrit and Indian culture could never reproduce the spirit and magic of Bankimda’s immortal work.
Why do Christian Fascists and Islamists oppose the song?
In 2009 Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind resolution endorsed Deoband, Dar-ul-Uloom’s fatwa against singing Vande Mataram, India’s national song.
Central reason of Christian, Muslim hostility to the song is christian fascist/ islamist opposition to blend with natives and christian fascist /islamist hatred of native Indian traditions.
One may notice that surprisingly Islamists don’t seem to have any qualms at all on Jana Gana Mana, where English Emperor George V is addressed as Bharata Bhagya Vidata (Arbitrator of India’s destiny). So the issue is as much political as it is an assertion of islamist exclusivity.
One need not blame Maulana Madani, Jamaat leader, who is straight with his position unlike the sickular mafia. Madani referred explicitly to Indian muslims following mohummad’s Hudaibiya precedent. (islam’s founder mohommad led a strategic retreat in Mecca without integrating with native Quresh, who were stronger, and waited for an appropriate moment to strike for islam and extinguish native Arab beliefs). Sickularism in India is a tool for christian fascists and islamists to persist with Hudabiya type strategy.
Those who eulogise the likes of Syed Ahmed Khan, Maulana Mohummad Ali as moderates, and Jamaat as a moderate organizations are guilty of deliberate deceit.
Syed ahmed khan indeed peddled deceit – asserting that he belonged to two equal circles – one Indian, one islamic, and then collaborated with the British for waxing of one (islam) and waning the second (native indian); just as muslims today collaborate with sickular/communist deceits.
Jamaat, Maulana Maududi and others similarly opposed partition not because of nationalist credentials, as Christian led Congress party deceits would have one believe, but because of the concern that division of India, would slow down the wider islamist millennium old project to take over India, and extinguish native beliefs/traditions.
What should be done?
Unfortunately there are no easy solutions.
Coercive dogmatic islamist and christian undermining of national unity can be managed only by coercive efforts by the state. For example Sarcozy was left with no option but to ban burqa in the interest of French society, its native tradition and well being. America has its Patriot Act and variety of tools to sustain American nationalism.
In India, articles 25-30 which have been used to empower totalitarian christian/islamic fascism have to go. In India, we have a situation wherein the rights, privileges and prerogatives belong to the Christian/Islamic fascists and the native Indians are left holding the duties, responsibilities and obligations. Natives are discouraged from establishing institutions to propagate their values/heritage. And native places of worship alone get regulated by the hostile government, their resources abused/looted. Such a perverse situation does not exist anywhere else in the world.
Failure to address islamist vote bank politics, encouraged and nurtured by Christian headed Congress, communist boot leggers will have enormous costs for India, its unity and in specific for followers of native Indian faiths – Hindus, Jains, Sikhs, Buddhists.
Some Tagorists are in a state of denial that Tagore did not eulogise George V thru Jana Gana Mana. Evidence is too strong on the context of Jana Gana Mana creation as eulogy to King George; and its timing – it was first publically sung welcoming british emperor for coronation durbar; media carried reports to that effect (see next para); Tagore as long as he lived, never publically denied these reports show the correct position. Tagore was not a disloyal subject in 1911 and was knighted by King George. ZIM believes that Tagore’s greatness as a poet is in no way diminished by the evidence that Jana Gana Mana was created by him as a eulogy to King George. Those were perceived by many as the halcyon days of the Raj. In the subsequent section of the song, which is not considered ‘national anthem’ Tagore refers to coronation (people all hues from east and west come to be in the side of your sinhasan (king’s throne). Another give away is that in native Indian tradition, Nation is looked at as a mother that nurtures. Tagore himself in Amar Sonar Bangla, refers to Bengal as Nurturing Mother. And Tagore as an intellectual of high order was himself deeply derisive on sickular thinking. Today his Gitanjali wont pass the sickular test, let alone win Nobel Prize. In Gitanjali, Tagore envisaged an India “.Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way into the dreary desert sand of dead habit” Tagore wanted an India where native Dharma (clear stream of reason) trumps desert dogmas – islam, christianity (dreary desert sand of dead habits); very reverse of sickularism. In Sandip’s story, one can see how derisive, Tagore was on sicko thinking.
(Jana Gana Mana’ was composed and Sung on December 1911, precisely at the time of the Coronation Durbar of George V, and Newspapers of those days called it a paean in praise of “the overlord of India’s destiny”.
Statesman, Dec.28, 1911- “The Bengali poet Babu Rabindranath Tagore, British Indian subject, sang a song composed by him specially to welcome the Emperor.”
Englishman, Dec. 28, 1911 – “The proceedings began with the singing by Babu Rabindranath Tagore of a song specially composed by him in honour of the Emperor.”
Indian, Dec. 29, 1911 – “When the proceedings of the Indian National Congress began on Wednesday 27th December 1911, a Bengali song in welcome of the Emperor was sung. A resolution welcoming the Emperor and Empress was also adopted unanimously.” )
