Here is Varun Gandhi’s statement about his alleged hate speech:
Each time anyone identifies with the Hindu community, there is a vigorous attempt to embarrass him and brand him communal. I am proud of my faith, not apologetic about it. I am a Gandhi, a Hindu and an Indian in equal measure. Hindutava embraces tolerance, justice, compassion with courage and inclusivity with insight.
I have never said or done anything to incite hatred. I am pro-India, not anti anybody. Since the UP assembly elections, the Pilibhit parliamentary constituency and the entire central Uttar Pradesh, which is about 20 districts, has been witness to a number of communal and provocative incidents.
The slaughtered remains of cows have been found in various homes, no action has been taken. Thousands and thousands of people from the Hindu community have been placed under arrest under National Security Act. Three Hindu temples have been vandalized in the very block in which I am supposed to have given my speech.
Village pradhans have been threatened daily. Quota shop owners have had their quotas cancelled. Pilibhit is a sensitive border area. There is widespread fear that arms are being smuggled into ghettos to be used against India.
My attempt has been to restore confidence in the community that has been under siege in its own country. When things are seen out of context, there is always the danger of misunderstanding. India is a big country with a big heart. There is room in it for all to leave in peace and goodwill. That is my sincere hope and effort.
I have been a victim of a political conspiracy. Those are not my words and that is not my voice. I have not made any communal statement. I want to ask the nation to stand by me. This CD which was supposed to be made on the 4th, why was it released on the 16th? Where was it for 12 days? Who has made it? It has been doctored. It has been a malicious attempt to brand me as communal. There is no question of myself having any ill feeling toward any community. Yes, I am a proud Hindu, and as a proud Hindu I stand with all citizens of all faiths.
Notice how none of the secular editors is interested in the facts about the Hindu situation in Pilibhit. Have temples really been vandalised? Have cow carcasses been found by the hundreds, deliberately to needle the Hindus of the area? Have Hindu women been raped by Muslim thugs? Are arms actually being smuggled in from Nepal and being stored in Muslim ghettos to wage war against the Hindus? Have thousands of Hindus from Pilibhit been arrested under NSA in the last one year by the local administration headed by Muslims?
How many of these secular editors specialising in “investigative reports” and anti-BJP sting operations have actually dispatched reporters to Pilibhit to investigate if there is any truth that Muslims have laid siege to the Hindus of Pilibhit? Not a single one. Instead, they are all trying to put BJP in the dock and are baying for the blood of Varun Gandhi. They are very careful not to even mention the issue of Hindus of Pilibhit.
It has been rightly said that Hindus are willing accomplices in their own persecution. What kind of Hindus are these English editors? Don’t their blood boil at what is happening to fellow Hindus in our own country? Is there no issue serious enough that it will not be prostituted by these people for narrow political gains of the moment?
Here is a sample of a deranged Hindu youth from the above You Tube link. Notice the reply:
what stupids are we , we need good indian leader
not stupid like him.
iam a hindu , i dont went fool like him as my leader
Hinduism must have really begun to stagnate if it has now begun to produce genetic garbage like the above idiot. Not a word about broken temples, the arms being smuggled into Pilibhit, the Hindu girls being raped by roving Muslim thugs, the daily warnings to Hindu village leaders … All the idiot can think of is some nonsensical two lines of disapproval. Is this the type of Hindu male who is going to save Hindu women and children when the Muslims come calling? The idiot cannot even write two lines coherently. No wonder with specimens like these, Congress courtiers keep winning in elections.
Hindus should understand something very clearly: if Hindus are persecuted in any part of India and you continue your daily life with the attitude of “it is none of my business” or “hamein kya faraq padta hai,” soon your own balls will be grabbed and then other Hindus will do the same for you regardless of how much you flail your arms. Hang together or hang separately. Your choice. Too much individualism is not good. Learn to think, act and push as a single group.
