It is said that a person who suffers from jaundice sees yellow. It’s an idiom, lest Seema Chishti, journalist and wife of CPIM leader Sitaram Yechury accuse me of wishing him jaundice. You see, anything can happen these days.
Sharing a screenshot of Jansatta’s headline which attributed a quote to RSS leader Mohan Bhagwat, Chishti wondered if âMuktâ in Congress-Mukt-Bharat actually represented âdeathâ.
Chishti not only distorted Bhagwat’s quote, but she also used RSS as a shield to mock Hinduism.
“Mukt” or “Mukti” is used in Hinduism to define liberation from the world of mortals, which is why cremation places are often known as “muktidhaam”, a place where one leaves the world. mortals. Mukti is liberation from the cycle of birth and death and other than Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism also believe in the same philosophy.
When the BJP and its supporters used the term âCongress-mukt Bharatâ, the âmuktâ in him meant âfreeâ and not death as Chishti would have everyone believe.
What did RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat actually say?
RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat, while interacting to stay positive amid the coronavirus pandemic, said times are tough and many people have lost their loved ones. âThey shouldn’t have left this anytime soon. But there is nothing we can do about it. Now we are in this situation right now. And those who left us were freed in a way, âhe said.
In Hinduism, not only COVID, but all death is called âmuktiâ, as a liberation of the soul. Unlike Islam which believes in the Day of Judgment when Allah decides, based on your actions, how their afterlife will be.
