A similar attempt, but this time from BJP-RSS ecosystem:
Swami Vivekananda -> not Bengali
Shyamaprasad Mookerjee -> not Bengali
Subhas Chandra Bose -> not Bengali
Amartya Sen -> Most certainly Bengali.
There is a good reason why the Bohiragoto narrative took off in Bengal. All those on SM have been exposed to the rabid Bengali-phobia of sections of BJP-RSS nationwide ecosystem. Can WB BJP disavow this section? Not sure. Sans, this section will be its Achilles heel.
Amit Malviya closely connects the Bengali-phobe section of BJP-RSS ecosystem with WB BJP. Almost every one flagged here is a close friend of Malviya sringeribelur.com/bengal-the-ene… He may well be too powerful for WB BJP to disavow.
TMC does need to go.
The Bengali-phobe section of BJP-RSS is pulling back WB BJP.
Both statements are true.

RSS is not a Hindu organization, and should never ever be mistaken as such. Consider the temple destruction spree in Karnataka under the nose of B. L. Santosh, all powerful RSS man. BJP is a political party, meaning, the choice is political & ought to be on state by state basis.
Loyalty to a political party is a false virtue. Loyalty should only be to causes.
Some of the values of RSS, latest that I noted is abusing and humiliating parents in public (refer to my thread on Rakesh Simha and some other RSS cadres), are quite antithetical to Sanatan Dharma.

One of the most poignant movies that I watched have been “Coming Home” en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coming_Ho… on the horrors of Maoist cultural revolution, of minors pressurized to turn in their parents. Watch it, read the article below&the thread. The similarity in mindset of RSS is striking:
The parallels between Maoist China & Stalinist Russia & the mindset of RSS men publicly humiliating their parents, cheered on by fellow RSS men, in the name of Dharma has/will jar quite a few nerves. But it has to be said & pondered upon.
Neither any political party nor any mafia org will stop me from speaking out truth as I see it, that includes post poll violence in Bengal & the toxic culture of cheering on the depravity of turning on parents.

A poignant Chinese movie showing impact of a minor daughter turning in her dad during Cultural Revolution. How it destroyed the entire family, including the daughter out of guilt.Seems RSS teaches this,looking at support 4 deriding father by Rakesh Simha. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coming_Ho…
At least Dandan was a minor and heavily pressurized when she turned in her father.She suffered intense remorse all her life seeing how her family was destroyed by that act.RSS man Rakesh Simha humiliated his father as an adult & presumably for some incentives. No guilt whatsoever
And, scores of RSS fanboys are supporting deriding father for being a Marxist! The level of distortion of basic human values RSS accomplishes is mind boggling !

To defend Rakesh Simha’s caricature of his parents, his fellow RSS men are bringing up Pandava’s fight against their family. So typical of RSS to equate Dharma Yuddha with caricaturing, throwing slurs etc. But that’s what most of them get by Yuddha,cowardice is rampant in the org
Equivalent of Dharma Yuddha in modern societal setting is to follow the politics of your choice, if necessary, in opposition to anyone including parents. Following a different politics in RSS mind invariably involves abusing, deriding, humiliating, throwing slurs etc.
Those who can’t distinguish between Dharna Yuddha and abusing, should remove themselves from my TL, if they have a habit of commenting. Commenting is fine provided value systems/intellect levels have a complete mismatch.

One of the values I take seriously is loyalty, which includes, loyalty to family, other than other identities, religion, language, nation, etc. Blocked all those who defended RSS man Rakesh Simha’s caricaturing of his own father just because the father was a Marxist.
Don’t believe that loyalty involves obedience.1 should not unquestioningly obey parents,may be,not even when one is a kid (the latter is debatable,but personally I didn’t even at that stage). Loyalty however is defending them when under attack or at least never publicly humiliate
We don’t choose our parents. Its perfectly natural not to agree with their politics. One should most certainly practice one’s politics regardless of what parents think.But that doesn’t mean one should throw slurs at parents or humiliate them in public.Rakesh Simha is typical RSS!

ভবানীপুরে কঠিন লড়াই মমতার জোর টক্কর দেবেন প্রিয়াঙ্কা টিব্রেওয়াল - অরুণাভ ঘোষ ওনার মুখে ফুল চন্দন পড়ুক! Arunava Ghosh predicts a tough fight between Mamata & Priyanka, says result unclear. May he turn right!
Arunava argues that in 2016 even in the Bengali areas Mamata had to face a tough fight. She won only because of the Muslim vote in Khiddirpore. She escaped to Nandigram because she no longer perceived Bhabanipur as a safe seat.
What he may be missing is that in each bypoll the ruling party starts with a huge advantage. TMC is still in its honeymoon period. So I disagree with his assessment, purely logically speaking, my heart of course agrees with him fully.
