Can you kindly pass this message to Mr. Varun Gandhi? I don’t know how to do that. If any one of you can do that, it would be great. Thank You.

Peace.

Dear Varun Gandhi,

Congratulations for your winning.

Before sharing my ideas with you, I like to tell few words about myself. I am the person interested in spiritual life. I have lived as a monk for 14 years. This is background with which these lines were written.

Somehow, I do love you. I feel that you can definitely do something great for India. I don’t know why but I do feel that.

However, I want to make clear that your statement was definitely most dangerous one, had you made that (but you say it was not….).

Now you have won. Why don’t you take it as an opportunity to undo whatever you have been quoted as saying? Why don’t you take this as a great privilege to do immense good to people of your constituency, irrespective of Hindus, or Muslims, or Christians? Please do that and see what happens. I wish that the day will come within these five years that every people in your constituency will vote for you. Every one, irrespective of their religion should love you and appreciate you is my wish.

I never believe that by hurting each other by attacking each other we can have peace in this world. By doing so we will simply destroy each other. Hindus will attack Muslims, Muslims Hindus, so on and so forth. Then that will be the best way to end this world.

What I feel is that you have immense potential to bring the people of different religious community to together. Public who may read this may laugh at it. But I feel. I feel very strongly. I feel that what has happened in the beginning of your political career is a black spot, which can bring enormous good to you in the long run. Let the day come those who wanted to destroy your political career feel envy at you. Not only that let them too start loving you for your goodness.

It will be the most wonderful day in your life and in your political carrier, (in the long run in the history of India itself) if you start bringing together people of different religions who believe in peace and harmony of mutual existence, who believe that love is the way not the hatred.

I always wonder why there is not even a single person in any political party who don’t think of splitting the votes in the name of caste, religion etc? Why? Each party looks to be absolutely communal. We are so unbelievably selfish. We are ready to do anything to keep our carrier alive. As you say there is thirst for power. Unfortunately, we are ready to do anything for that!

I don’t say that you should not have thirst for power. On the other hand, I do agree with you when you said, if any politician says I am not interested in power, he is a liar. True, he is a great liar. If politician is not interested in power, he is no more politician!

But you can use that search for power to go immense good to society and people, and the world at large. I wish you, I wish most sincerely that the day will come when you will be remembered as one of the best person who has done immense good to all sections of society irrespective of religions.

With Love and Regards,
Peace.

Ps – Peace is my name.

Varun Gandhi is imbibed in the immunity of extra religionism. Well, he wont make a Great Atal for sure. Its a negative surprise in the modern times.

Among the Hindu communal forces we have seen rise & fall of Sadhvi Rithambra, Uma Bharti, Vinay Katiar,Dr Togadia and so on. The only person who has been able to encash communal card time & again is Narender Modi.I may be his bitter critic but I accept that he is a person with immense quality and there are only few who can match it.

Before raising his communal voice he should first develop those qualities that has made Modi a successful politician otherwise he will soon be be lost in the crowd

Does god create human to fight for religion? or to live in the world and enjoy his creation?. Why people are so proud of a hate speech based on religion?. If Varun is true support of Hindu religion then he can preach it. But not by inducing a hate speech. Neither any religion support hateness of human being based on religion nor the Hindu religion support it. People please wake up and know the difference and respect the fellow human being first before bringing the religion. Religion is to make the people better not worst. Bring yourself to senses. This is a my humble attempt.

Mohandas Gandhi did not DREAM this India. He would have opposed the British to give Independence if he would have known that India will be corrupt, barbaric, unsophisticated, brutal, collaborate in crimes against humanity and discriminatory. Varun Gandhi is a TRUE INDIAN and son of Sanjay Gandhi who was nominated by Indra Gandhi. Varun will overcome all the struggles and become a leader of India.

But this is also the truth that he has all the qualities of a future leader. Undoubtedly he needs to learn that as a politician and as a human being also he should respect all the religions because he is now a part of Indian politics and India posess many religions. Being a chauvanist is not good at all. I hope that he’ll make Indian politics better and India a better place in future.
