It was necessary to be armed; otherwise, the wolves would pounce on the sadhus without any reason: Rashtra Kavi Dinkar
Rashtrakavi Dinkar had said that we will walk on the path of non-violence, but at the same time, we will also walk with weapons, so that we can protect our lives from the wolves, who pounce on the Sadhus for no reason.
Not surprisingly, it is also a matter of grief that the truth of the killing of the sadhus in Palghar is that armed police knowingly did not try to save sadhus. The police had pushed the unarmed monks towards the killers.
Here we will talk about Ramdhari Singh Dinkar, who was a Rajya Sabha MP and who during his tenure never hesitated to ask questions and point fingers at the mistakes of Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru.
The Indo-China War is one such incident in history, when illusion was erased from Nehru’s mind that now the era of non-violence arrived and India did not need arms and military.
In his speech in the Rajya Sabha on February 21, 1963, Rashtrakavi Ramdhari Singh Dinkar had explained what non-violence means. He had told that Gandhi’s non-violence was not, just non-violence but there was fire in it, sacrifice was fast and flame of Ahuti.
