Narendra Modi Directly Manipulated by RSS

In FTR #795, we detailed the his­tor­i­cal evo­lu­tion of the polit­i­cal ascent of Naren­dra Modi, inex­tri­ca­bly linked with the oper­a­tions, devel­op­ment and his­to­ry of the RSS, polit­i­cal par­ent to his BJP Par­ty. The RSS is a Hin­du nation­al­ist and fas­cist par­ty, one of whose alum­ni assas­si­nat­ed Mahat­ma Gand­hi. Recent devel­op­ments have clar­i­fied the degree of con­trol and influ­ence that the RSS exerts on Modi. That con­trol is pro­found and direct. Most alarm­ing­ly, the RSS wants to see India and Pak­istan “reunit­ed!” All of the con­tents of this web­site as of 12/19/2014–Dave Emory’s 35+ years of research and broadcasting–as well as hours of video­taped lec­tures are avail­able on a 32GB flash dri­ve. Dave offers his pro­grams and arti­cles for free–your sup­port is very much appre­ci­at­ed.


FTR #795 Fascism, Hindu Nationalism and Narendra Modi

Prime Min­is­ter-elect Naren­dra Modi, with a polit­i­cal back­ground in a Hin­du nation­al­ist par­ty with strong fas­cist roots, is now in charge of the world’s sec­ond largest coun­try and the world’s largest democ­ra­cy. Naren­dra Modi belonged to the RSS, an orga­ni­za­tion with an his­tor­i­cal affin­i­ty for Nazism and fas­cism. Cap­i­tal­iz­ing on anti-Mus­lim fer­vor in India, RSS has gen­er­at­ed much grav­i­tas. Modi has been impli­cat­ed in com­plic­i­ty in lethal anti-Mus­lim riot­ing in India. In addi­tion to anti-colo­nial sen­ti­ment that pit­ted Indi­an nation­al­ists against the British Raj pri­or to World War II, Nazism and Hin­du phi­los­o­phy also found com­mon ground in ele­ments of “Aryan” mys­ti­cism. Many ele­ments of the Brah­min caste also found affin­i­ty with the elit­ist and anti-demo­c­ra­t­ic phi­los­o­phy of Mus­solin­i’s fas­cism as well.
