Savarkar was truly an interpreter of cultural nationalism. It was Savarkar who laid the foundation of the Swadeshi movement in India. He gave the first call for Swadeshi in the country. In October 1905, Savarkar announced the boycott of foreign goods in a huge public meeting in Pune. Later the same Swadeshi movement was adopted by Mahatma Gandhi. Savarkar linked the Swadeshi movement with nation, culture and his traditional self-reliance and self-employment. After this Mahatma Gandhi and then Deendayal Upadhyay ji started this Swadeshi movement. carried forward.

In 1906, Savarkar resolved to write the book Independence Summer of 1857. In the book The Indian War of Independence-1857, written in 1909, Savarkar declared this fight as the first war of independence against the British government.
On 10 May 1907, Savarkar organized a grand event under the leadership of the Free India Society to celebrate the 50th anniversary of this struggle at the India House in London. That day Savarkar dismissed it as a military mutiny or mutiny and declared it as the first armed war of freedom struggle against British rule. Savarkar was successful in giving this first battle the status of a war.
Not only this, an important thing, Veer Savarkar was the first Indian student who refused to take the oath of loyalty to the King of England. As a result, he was barred from practicing law. This happened for the first time in this country.
He was the first poet in the world who wrote poems with nails and coal on the prison walls in Andaman’s solitary confinement and then remembered them. Thus he rewrote the 10,000 lines memorized after his release from jail.
“Many parties including the Congress opposed the oil painting in the Parliament House, but now Savarkar is present there and Savarkar’s ideology is influential in the whole country today. To be honest, Savarkar was the exponent of cultural nationalism, not a Hindu.”
He was against the partition of India in 1947. Veer Savarkar strongly opposed the partition. After the death of Veer Savarkar on 26 February 1966, former Prime Minister of Congress late. Indira Gandhi had said that Savarkar was a true patriot, a fierce nationalist. Savarkar’s daring to disobey the orders of the British Government has its own place in our freedom struggle. In 1970, a postage stamp was issued on Savarkar.

On October 15, 2019, the Maharashtra unit of the BJP in its election manifesto talked about honoring Savarkar with ‘Bharat Ratna’ and the next day on October 16, Prime Minister Modi said in the ‘Mahajanadesh Sankalp Sabha’ in Akola, Maharashtra – ‘Veer Savarkar’s rituals We believe that nationalism is at our core.
Savarkar presented the Hindu way of life as distinct and distinct from other ways of life. He became the originator and theorist of ‘Hindutva’ ideology. All the debates are about this point of view. Today the number of its supporters is more and the Congress, its leader Rahul Gandhi on the margins.
Professor Salo Augustine of Sofia University calls RSS the ‘core-institution’ of ‘Hindutva’. The Sangh not only propagated the ideology of ‘Hindutva’, it developed its organizational structure (branches) down to the grassroots level. Savarkar was the theorist and Hedgewar the organiser. The political party associated with the ‘Hindutva’ ideology is the BJP.
There is a possibility that Savarkar will be given ‘Bharat Ratna’ in 2023-24. The year 2023 is the publication centenary of Savarkar’s ‘Hindutva’ booklet.
Rahul’s mentor Salman Khurshid has compared Hindutva to isis. Another Guru Shiraj Patil has described Shri Krishna of Mahabharata as Jihadi by following the footsteps of Zakir Nayak. This fugitive Zakir was called peace ambassador by Rahul Gandhi’s third Guru Digvijay Singh.
Even on November 18, 2022, a day before Indira Gandhi’s 105th birth anniversary, Vinayak Damodar Savarkar is in headlines and debates because of Rahul Gandhi’s absurd baseless comments.
Postage stamp on Savarkar was issued by Indira Gandhi in 1970. Postage stamp on Savarkar was issued in 1970.
A letter written by the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi in honor of Veer Savarkar:
Contrary to Nehru ji, Savarkar who is against the division of united India is also against dynasty. The IITian grandson of Veer Savarkar was on the streets of Pune. Hungry in the same way as Sardar Patel’s daughter Maniben in poverty…
How Nehru founded a political dynastybut left Sardar Patel’s daughter to die a pauper
Sardar Patel was also a staunch opponent of dynasty in politics.It is said that Sardar Patel had instructed that as long as he is in Delhi, his relatives should not step in Delhi and should not contact him. He was afraid that due to this his name could be misused. Although his family was not very big. Sardar Patel was survived by a son and a daughter, Maniben Patel.
