“Ask him to first change his name from Sitaram”, Subramanian Swamy reprimands Yechury for citing Ramayana-Mahabharata as proofs of Hindu violence

Yechury to equate Dharmayuddha with a religious war, and calling it a proof of ‘Hindu violence’ only demonstrates his shallow mindset and testifies the level our politicians are willing to stoop to in their sordid race for power.

In a sharp rebuke to CPI(M) General Secretary Sitaram Yechury for his audacity to brand epics Ramayana and Mahabharata as specimens of Hindu violence, BJP leader, Subramanian Swamy Tweeted that Sitaram Yechury should be first asked to change his name. He, instead of being called ‘Sitaram’ should be named ‘Mar(x)Leni(n)= Marleni’.

Further, while talking on the phone lines with Times Now, Subramanian Swamy training his guns at the Communist leader said that it is the worst possible thing a person living in India could say.

Sitaram Yechury belongs to a party that believes in violence, i.e. revolutionary violence. “He himself belonging to a party which believes in violence, and calling Hindu’s violent is meaningless on his part,” Swamy said. He added that Hindus believe in retaliatory violence which means that, the Hindu’s don’t believe in initiating violence but won’t stop if inflicted with the same.

Stating examples from Mahabharata and Ramayana, Swamy says that Hindu never takes the first step towards violence but once they are forced they go to any length in the due process.

On being questioned whether the opposition is resorting to such tactics as a sign of desperation and political convenience, Swamy says that the opposition including the Congress party, is probably “recognising that Hindutva is upsetting their all sorts of calculations, so now they are trying to rubbish it by making such absurd remarks”.

Last year too, Swamy had launched a scathing attack on Yechury for asking for the impeachment of CJI saying that “Yechuri sounds demented in asking for impeachment of CJI. Leftist don’t like CJI because he quotes from Sanskrit! Impeach Karat first,” Swamy tweeted.

Earlier, CPI(M) General Secretary Sitaram Yechury had triggered a massive controversy with his recent comments on the Mahabharata and the Ramayana.

At an event in Bhopal in Madhya Pradesh, Yechury said, “Ramayana and Mahabharata are also filled with instances of violence and battles. Being a pracharak (RSS functionary), you narrate the epics but still claim Hindus can’t be violent? What is the logic behind saying that there’s a religion which engages in violence and we Hindus don’t.”

First things first, to reduce the vast complexity of the Mahabharata and the Ramayana to a mere exhibition of violence is only a reflection of the extremely myopic understanding of the texts the Communist appears to have. Secondly, to view the violence in the epics in isolation is to miss the point of it all entirely.

In Mahabharata, just as in Ramayana, war ensued because principles of Dharma were violated and Adharma reigned supreme in the land. But for Yechury to equate Dharmayuddha with a religious war, and calling it a proof of ‘Hindu violence’ only demonstrates his shallow mindset and testifies the level our politicians are willing to stoop to in their sordid race for power.
