INDIAN AMERICAN INTELLECTUALS FORUM (IAIF) FULLY SUPPORTS BABA RAMDEV’S CAMPAIGN


INDIAN AMERICAN INTELLECTUALS FORUM (IAIF) FULLY SUPPORTS BABA RAMDEV’S CAMPAIGN AGAINST CORRUPTION

Narain Kataria in New York

We are very happy to know that Baba Ramdev is organizing and mobilizing one hundred million people all over India. His aim is to end the menace of corruption in India, punish the guilty and restore dignity to Bharat. He wants to compel Government of India to enact laws to declare 400 lakh crores ($9.04 trillion) stashed in foreign banks to be declared as national wealth.

He believes that if all the money is brought back to India, each district in India will get Rs. 60,000 crores ($13.6 billion) and each village will get Rs. 100 crores ($22.6 million). As a result, 84 crore (840 million) people living in poverty will get quality education and reasonably good living standard. Even though it is said that India is poor, but Indians are rich!

Baba Ramdev, like Hindu Rishis of yore, is striving to revive the Hindu values of self-respect, truthfulness, sacrifice, pride, character, honesty, sincerity of purpose, patriotism, fight against injustice and chivalry –the hallmark of Hindu Dharma Dharma – which have been relegated to the background and forgotten.

To achieve his aim, Baba Ramdev has chosen the birth anniversary of Maharana Pratap Singh (June 4, 2011), the great Hindu warrior king who made unprecedented sacrifices to uphold the dignity and pride of the Hindu Nation. On this sacred day, Baba Ramdev plans to bring one hundred thousand people to New Delhi. These 100,000 volunteers will go on fast to pressurize Government of India to bring back all the monies in foreign banks/countries and punish the guilty. Simultaneously, rallies will be organized in all the Indian states. There is no doubt that this is a prolonged battle.

Corruption is India’s bane and threatens to derail its rapidly growing economy and indirectly gives boost to terrorism. The country ranks a dismal 84th in a list of 180 countries, according to Transparency International’s 2009 Corruption Perceptions Index, a measure of domestic and public sector corruption.

The plunder of India by Gandhi Dynasty led by UPA Chairman Sonia Gandhi and her cronies has been going on unabashedly for the last 63 years. We have paid a very heavy price for our indifference, lethargy and lassitude. We have to come out of that stupor, be proactive and join hands with Baba Ramdev to restore dignity to India.

Baba Ramdev desires to put Bharat Mata on the pedestal of glory and make Bharat the Jagat Guru (world guru) again. If Baba Ramdev succeeds in his mission, India will emerge as a very powerful and perhaps the richest country in the world.

In this connection, we laud the efforts of Dr. Subramanian Swamy, President of Janata Party and former Law Minister, Government of India who has submitted a petition (220 pages) to the Prime Minister of India, Manmohan Singh and sought his sanction to prosecute Sonia Gandhi, “the source of corruption”, under the Prevention of Corruption Act.

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Sonia Gandhi, UPA Chairman have been proclaiming “zero tolerance” towards corruption. John Maclithon covered South Asia for several decades for a leading Australian radio channel. He used to run down Hindu people and their culture. He later expressed his repentance for this, and wrote about Sonia Gandhi as under: “Yet, today I can say without the shadow of a doubt that when history will be written, the period over which Sonia presided, both over the Congress and India, will be seen as an era of darkness, of immense corruption and of a democracy verging towards autocracy, if not disguised dictatorship, in the hands of a single person, a non Indian and a Christian like me. Truth will also come out about her being the main recipient for kickbacks from Bofors to 2G, which she uses to buy votes, as the Wikileaks have just shown.” (Organiser, My 1, 2011)

On behalf of Indian Americans Intellectual Freedom (IAIF), we appeal to all Indians, whether living in India or abroad to join wholeheartedly in this Yagna to support Baba Ramdev to enable him to accomplish his mission successfully.

  6. Yogacharya, Baba Ramdev ji is very popular and financially very sound personality to do everything whatever they want because of unlimited support/majority of public/peoples including national and international.
    As regarding the campaign of “Satyagraha” as announced by Baba Ramdev against the corruption/crime in the country, this project is already campaigned by Anna Hazare including Baba Ramdev, Aims & objectives of campaign is same as of Anna Hazare. There is nothing personal either by Anna or Baba Ramdev. There has been very little/some differences about the procedure and follow-ups,relating to appointed committee. Baba Ramdev may not like some persons in the group of Anna. This is only the reason,so Baba Ramdev created a new path for the same aims & objectives which is already selected by Anna. When both of them have same aims & objectives then why the Path has been changed by Baba Ramdev?
    I know the power, capacity of Baba Ramdev, he is more powerful than Anna, but here is not a question of individual capacity. Being stronger on Anna, Baba Ramdev can weaken the campaign of Anna, so my humble request with Baba Ramdev is that, Babaji , instead of creating separate campaign, it would be more better if they join and support to Anna, a very quick and positive result will be seen in the country if both of them work unitedly, government will be puzzled and will be constrained to accept their demands jointly. Anna is very Senior Social worker based on gandhian ideaology, where “Babaji’s social working style is totally differ from the Anna.He himself is supportive to one of a political party. That “Party” wants him to join politics also. His group is fully supported by big business tycoons, industrial houses,politicians and financiers from India & abroad, so there is no comparison in between Anna & “Baba”, but to solve the national problem of Corruptions, Crimes of India, I humbly request to “Babaji” to kindly build strong Anna Hazare (to ful fill your own aims) with your powerful support with health,wealth, and heartiest support to fight against all the evils of our society, our nation.
    One more thing I would like to here with a request to “Baba”, please maintain your status of “Yogacharya” don’t try to become politician, which is worst game. If you remember please see the example of Dhirendra Bhamhachari, how he destroyed his own future and status of “Yogacharya”, so please be very careful.
    With regards,
    vinod mallik
