Dr. Balkrishna Shivramji Moonje

Bio

Dharmaveer Dr. Balakrishna Shivram Moonje ( Dr. B. S. Moonje, Dr. Moonje  (12 December 1872 – 3 March 1948 ) was a leader of the Hindu Mahasabha in India.

During pre-independence era when everyone was busy in reciting and chanting NON-VIOLENCE RAGA OF GANDHI, Dr Moonje was the only Indian politician who talked about Militarisation of India. British Rulers were reluctant to give Officer Rank to Indian youth. Even when the “Officer Entry” was denied for Indians, Dr Moonje ardently and passionately battled against British Policy of disarming Indians. British rulers used to ridicule Indians saying that they don’t have Military Officer like qualities in them. He was an Elected Member of Central Legislative Assembly (British Regime) from 1927 to 1931. He presented a private Bill to start a Cadet Training Academy at Dehradun. After long discussion and debate the BILL was passed and Indian Military Academy was started at Dehradun by British Government. Thus the process of Indianisation of Royal British Army ( British Army )  was started because of Dr B S Moonje. Dr Moonje had to pay a very heavy cost for adopting policies contrary to Gandhiji. At that time when Indian people were overwhelmed by Gandhiji’s Non Violence Policy he used to vehemently talk about Physical and Military Training of the Indian youth. Paradoxically, Gandhi followers were intolerant about any other idea from any other Leader (again contrary to idea of non violence ). Dr Moonje was insulted as a warmonger. Demonstrations, at Nagpur, were held by Gandhi supporters to protest against Dr Moonje’s policy. Dr Moonje’s effigy was burnt and derogatory slogans against Dr Moonje were given but Dr Moonje never changed his stand by an inch. Unaffected by this, The First Chief of RSS Pujania Dr K B Hedgewar felicitated Dr Moonje by saying that “Quality of a Leader is not into following the public but to insist on the truth of your conviction”. “A leader is not supposed to follow people but instead he should convince people to follow him”. Dr Hedgewar praised and said that Dr Moonje has passed this test by consistently insisting on the truth of his conviction and in later years the entire nation followed him.

 

It is noteworthy here that after a shameful defeat in Indo-China War in 1962, the whole nation started talking on Military preparedness. The then Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru and the then Defence Minister of India had no face to show to people. In the speech given in the Central Legislative Assembly (Read the entire speech “ADVOCATE OF MILITARY TRAININGDr Moonje had warned and expressed his serious concern over the possible attack from China, during his tenure in 1927 to 1931 in the Assembly. His speech was also well admired by then British Military Top Commanders. This was victory of Dr Moonje’s Ideology and a total defeat of Nehru – Gandhian Non Violence Policy.
