Vande Mataram & Gandhi

Stopping the singing of Vande Mataram for appeasing Muslims

Gandhi was never interested in the sentiments or feelings of Hindus. He was only interested in becoming the accepted "leader" of Muslims. In his extreme lust for Muslim leadership, he hurt the sentiments of Hindus several times, repeatedly and trampled them over and over again. A few Muslims hated this song and for them, Gandhi immediately took the policy of stopping the Vande Mataram Song. This song had proved an inspiration for the youth in those days. Bengali community almost worshipped the song, yet Gandhi cared more for the Muslims than for Bengalis or Nation's youth ! Just because a handful of Muslims objected, disregarding the Nationalist sentiments in the song, Gandhi forcibly pushed down his morsel of stopping Vande Mataram down the throats of National Congress. His beliefs of Hindu Muslim unity meant, surrender, boot-licking and donating whatever was asked for, even if it meant that the remaining non-muslim population had to bear consequences!

Dishonoring the National Flag and National Song for Muslim appeasement

Barrister Jinna, the president of Muslim League demanded a ban on "Vande Mataram" in 1938. Gandhi had written in Harijan that he wouldn't like any arguments between Hindus and Muslims regarding Vande Mataram. Gandhi who had been using Vande Mataram in all his letters and speeches himself abandoned Vande Mataram and forced the whole Nation to abandon Vande Mataram. The Indian National Congress committee in 1940 announced a decision that the words "Vande Mataram" and "Bhagva Tiranga" should not be used by congress members thereafter in any public speeches/ announcements. The two words, which had the potential to ignite a spontaneous wave of patriotism among the Bengalis and prevented the splitting of Bengal, were banned by congress.
