Argumentum and absurdum on RSS by intellectuals need to be reappraised: Rakesh Sinha
BJP MP Rakesh Sinha said that RSS had been target of negative propaganda by pseudo intellectuals for decades and now is the time to know the truth about RSS. Sinha said that RSS has the ideological wherewithal to offer a credible alternative to transform India.
Sinha had written a book “Understanding RSS” that is a collection of his articles related to RSS and “an attempt to succinctly put forth the empirical evidences which punctures the myth interlaced by Congress and Left intellectuals to discredit RSS”.
Sinha says, “Intentionally, historicities of some events are not examined prudently by Indian intellectuals. Therefore, candid and scholarly narration on RSS will remove the ambiguities in the ‘history’ of India”.
He says, “Therefore, the commitment to truth in writing the history needs earnest defending for the sake of dispelling myth. It is about time to be geared up for this ‘tryst with truth’ about RSS. The fact is that RSS has the ideological wherewithal to offer a credible alternative to transform India”.

Sinha says that RSS has been engaging in cultural nationalism sincerely to shape the country. He wrote in the introduction of his book, “Its prolonged and sincere engagement with cultural nationalism is certainly not exclusionary and it has no negative ramification on the nation and her destiny. Therefore, argumentum and absurdum on RSS by intellectuals need to be reappraised”.
Sinha also criticizes to those squashed legitimacy of RSS, he claims, “The post-colonial Marxist and Nehruvian social scientists and intellectuals consciously, calculatingly and tactically overlooked empiricism and construed false narrative on the RSS which led a reactionary and regressive discourse. The academic and intellectual majoritarianism was employed as contrivance to squash legitimacy of the RSS and twisted discourse into monologue rants”.
