An article in the latest issue of jihadi magazine Nawa-i-Ghazwa-e-Hind ("The Voice of the Battle of India") deals with the ideology of Hindutva presented by some Hindu ideologues, including Madha Sadashiv Golwalkar, the second Sarsanghchalak ("supreme leader") of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), a Hindu nationalist paramilitary volunteer organization in India.

Another article narrates the prevailing situation in India and warns Muslims against secularism and democracy because they could not safeguard them in the subcontinent. It calls on the Muslims of India to prepare for jihad because only jihad can save them.

The two articles have been published in the Urdu-language jihadi magazine Nawa-i-Ghazwa-e-Hind dated Jamadi-us-Thani (fifth month of Islamic calendar) 1443 hijri, corresponding to January 2022. Nawa-i-Ghazwa-e-Hind is a jihadi magazine, formerly known as Nawa-i-Afghan Jihad ("The Voice of Afghan Jihad"), management of which has been taken over by Al-Qaeda In The Indian Subcontinent (AQIS).

"Western People Are Proud Of Their White Skin And This Thing Veils Their Thinking And Research"

In the article "What is Hindutva?" lesser-known writer Noman Hijazi writes that Madha Sadashiv Golwalkar popularized Hindu Mahasabha leader VD Savarkar's ideology regarding Hindutva in a new and attractive style along the lines of old Hindu philosophy and spiritual and religious belief.

Mentioning Golwalkar's inclusion and rise in the ranks of RSS, Hijazi writes: "It is interesting to note that Golwalkar, like Savarkar, was against the anti-British movement. That is to say, the two central ideologues of Hindutva were, in fact, supporters of the British Raj."

Contradicting modern research, Golwarkar seeks to prove that Hindus were the original inhabitants of India at its inception and will remain so. According to the Hijazi, Golwalkar criticizes Western anthropologists, saying: "Western people are proud of their white skin and this thing veils their thinking and research."

Hijiazi writes that Golwalkar considers the Hindu race a god in itself: "Though they did not use the word 'Hindu,' it is clear from the following description of the Almighty in Purusha Sukta, wherein it is stated that the sun and moon are His eyes, the stars and the skies are created from His navel, Brahmin is the head, King the hands, Vaishya the thighs, and Shudra the feet. This means that the people who have this fourfold arrangement, i.e., the Hindu People, is our God..."

Under the subheading "Some Observations," Hijazi points out factors responsible for the formation and rise of Hindutva ideology. One of them is "extreme racial supremacy," as they consider themselves "enlightened" while others are "malechha [i.e., impure]." "German Nazis used to consider themselves a superior race; Jews were a step ahead as they considered themselves the son of God; but Hindu's arrogance is far more than them as they consider themselves God," Hijazi.

Hijazi describes a "lack of persistence," "giving precedence over principles," "limitless lies and exaggerations," "playing victimhood card and crying over rights denied," and "enmity with the personalities of freedom struggle," as some of the common characteristics of Hindu nationalists.

"We Want To Wipe Out Jihadis And Anyone Who Recites Koran And Understands Its Meaning Is A Jihadi"

The second article, titled "India's Hindutva Movement Is In The Stage Of Preparedness For Genocide," was written by Abu Anwar Al-Hindi, who is from Bangladesh and has written this article from there, according to the article.

Al-Hindi writes: "Muslims of the subcontinent are continuously moving toward disaster. This is an act that started more than a century ago and today this has gained alarming momentum. The movement that started with the demand for a Hindu Rashtra [Hindu State] is today showing its true face by openly calling for Muslim massacre and genocide."

The article says that the recent Dharma Sansad (literally "religious parliament," i.e., a Hindu religious conference) in various parts of India asked Hindus to "prepare to kill Muslims."

Yati Narsingha Nand, one of the central leaders of the Dharma Sansad, said: "Swords are not enough to kill Muslims. We need better weapons than swords." Another said: "There remains no time now... Either be ready to be killed or get prepared to kill Muslims."

The article presents the message of the Dharma Sansad in four points: "It is necessary to fight against Muslims for the establishment of the Hindu Rashtra [Hindu Nation]; Hindus need to take up arms and get armed training; Hindus should boycott Muslims and drive them away from their localities; It is inevitable that Muslims will be wiped out of India."

Mentioning the ten stages of genocide, the article says that they are in the sixth stage and are preparing for the seventh, which talks about choosing targets and getting prepared for the massacre.

Under the subheading "What is the Solution?" the article argues that Muslims will remain mujahideen in the eyes of Hindus because they openly say: "We want to wipe out jihadis and anyone who recites Koran and understands its meaning is a jihadi."

The writer laments that the majority of the Muslims in the subcontinent, including Muslim clerics, believe in democracy and secularism but these ideologies have not benefited them. It asks Muslims to prepare to become mujahideen because only mujahideen will help them.

To make a point, the writer Abu Anwar al-Hindi quotes from the Koran 2:216: "Battle has been enjoined upon you while it is hateful to you. But perhaps you hate a thing and it is good for you; and perhaps you love a thing and it is bad for you. And Allah knows, while you know not."
