Anti- Nation Industry by Radha rajan & Krishen Kak


The well-researched book is the result of two events; the national
systemic bending-over-backwards to 'render justice' to the Muslim
victims of the Gujarat riots and the denial of a visa to the Gujarat
chief minister Narendra Modi by the US State Department. The first was
a process and the second an incident, and both the process and the
incident were authored by the same group of prominent 'peace' and
human rights NGOs and individual activists whose signature tune is

This book is not about the hundreds of NGOs working with great
dedication among the socially and economically backward sections of
our society motivated only by the inspiring vision of transforming
social attitudes and the quality of life of the people amongst whom
they live and work. But it is about those NGOs and activists whose
'peace' and human rights activism cloak deep political ambitions and
objectives not restricted to participating or influencing electoral
politics but aimed at shaping the character and direction of the
Indian polity in a manner which derives from their warped notion of
the Indian nation. Their political ambitions and activism are
essentially undemocratic and anti-India nation.

Notwithstanding the fact that important democratic institutions
including the NHRC, Parliament and the Judiciary have repeatedly shown
a marked tilt towards minorityism and have rushed to do the bidding of
the 'peace' and human rights activists profiled in this book, these
persons have nevertheless shamed our judiciary, our men in uniform and
our polity with their criticism of these pillars of our democracy on
foreign soil and even before foreign governments. Parliament should
consider suitable restrictions being placed on retired judges, retired
armed force personnel including and above the rank of Brigadier,
retired bureaucrats including and above the rank of Assistant
Secretary and retired policemen including and above the rank of SP
from undertaking projects for foreign or foreign-funded think-tanks
and from deposing before foreign governments and their departments on
any issue without prior permission from the Government of India.

The Lucknow bench of the Allahabad High Court has been sitting for
over five decades on the title suit of the Ramjanmabhumi while the
Supreme Court promptly issues interim orders on cases filed by the
Muslim community seeking to deny Hindu access to the site; those
guilty of the genocide of Sikhs during the anti-Sikh riots of 1984,
those guilty of the genocide of Kashmiri Hindus and those that render
Kashmiri Hindus alive in the notorious Radhabai Chawl incident during
the Mumbai riots of 1992, have all escaped the notice and attention of
these very national institutions and the same 'peace' and human rights
activists who continue to campaign for the Muslim victims of the
Gujarat riots of 2002.

There is a growing perception among the Hindu intelligentsia that
'peace' and human rights NGOs and activists are holding all democratic
institutions in the country hostage to international opinion about
democracy and good governance to serve the cause of 'secularism' in a
peculiarly on-sided fashion which may be interpreted to be anti-Hindu.

The well researched book exposes that India's so-called secular polity
is teetering perilously on the brink of minorityism aided and abetted
in no mean measure by this well-networked group of Hindu-baiters who
have succeeded in cleverly cloaking their congenital anti-Hindu bias
in the garb of constitutional 'protection of minority rights'
discourse. These NGOs and other politically motivated activists are
embarked on the twin mission to weaken India's political will to deal
ruthlessly with Islamic, Christian and Naxal terrorism and to de-
Hinduise the nation. A group of nationalist Indians - some of them
residing abroad - came together to profile these 'internationally
acclaimed' 'peace' and human right NGOs and activists with a view to
exposing their anti-India and anti-Hindu activism.

The most striking feature of this book is that, in spite of the fact
that the authors never discussed which NGOs to put under the scanner
and which activists to expose when they began to write the book, they
all zeroed in on the same groups! The book offers a veritable mine of
information on these NGOs and activists - who are their supporters,
partners and collaborators, what they say, what they write and their
position on important national issues. What the compilers have
presented, however, is only the tip of the iceberg. They have provided
endnotes and appendices, which will enable the interested reader to
dig deeper.

The book argues that contrary to doctored public opinion, these
internationally- acclaimed NGO's and activists are a threat to
communal harmony and India's democratic ethos. Communal harmony and
democracy are naturally and best protected only when 85% of this
nation's population repose faith in the country's democratic

The book exhorts the reader to raise his voice too as a political
Hindu to render service to this great nation's well being.

In this second and revised edition of the book a new chapter, exposing
AID, has been added, as well as a number of new appendices that
include Shri. Narendra Modi's speech at a book release function. The
book exposes Nirmala Deshpande, Arundathi Roy and Admiral Ramdas and
their kind much better and the kind of industry of which they are a
part. Arundhati Roy soon after Pokharan 2, said she is a mobile
independent republic. Roy also said she is not a flag-waving patriot.
But since Roy has a passport, it must have something to do with the
Indian nation. So, the Indian nation is relevant at least to the
extent that it allows these people to travel abroad to badmouth this

The clearly reveals the position of these so called NGO activists in
regard to national territory, to opinions they express in regard to
Jammu and Kashmir, the kind of nonsense they speak on American and
Pakistani soil about our jawans, is a cause of grave concern, because
they are members of either the National Integration Council or of CABE
or of the National Advisor Council of the UPA government. And they are
not above glorifying terrorism.

With facts the book argues that the so-called NGOs have no faith in
our elected parliament, they have no faith in our judiciary, they have
no faith in the NHRC. They go to the US State Department to depose
before it, begging the US State Department to come to India and
protect India's democracy. It is high time legislation is put in place
banning such people from deposing before alien governments against the
Indian army and India's democratic institutions. Very little is
generally known about the kind of position these people take on
American soil against the Indian nation, or their position on Jammu
and Kashmir, or what they are to say about our army. We have or jawans
dying day in and day out protecting our territory, protecting our
right to live. Why is it that the media does not do an expose of these
people, on what they have stated about Jammu and Kashmir, what they
have stated about Naxal terrorism, what they have stated about India's
defence requirement, what they have stated about the Indian army? What
is the opinion that they have about India's democratic institutions?
Every major issue concerning national security, every issue concerning
national security, every issue concerning national interest, they
reduce to the politics of minoritysm.

Arundhati Roy, for example, speaks for effect. She puts words cleverly
together. And, mindless that we are, we are so fascinated by the
English she speaks that we fail to subject the contents to critical
scrutiny. In fact, she has run down everything that is sacred or
reverent to large sections of India's people. The book has documented,
word for word, what they have said, and the kind of patrons they have
found abroad. Why do the European Parliament and the US State
Department support these activists? The compilation prompts us to look
at these questions and gives us the need to have the courage to look
at the answers. Releasing the book on September 9,2006, Shri. KPS Gill
noted his surprise 'that the anti-nationals in our country are
respected, and nationalists are derided........ These days our country is
fighting terrorism. But our so-called intellectuals have made efforts
unparalleled in the history of the world to decry and deny our success
in fighting terrorism'.

Vigil has placed before the readers, world for word a true picture of
the so -called NGOs. One must have the courage to look at the book
dispassionately. The book exposes the illustrious people who find
international patronage. This brilliantly analysed and thought-
provoking book is a must for all those who love India.
