RSS Wing Knows How To Get Dark, Short Low IQ Parents To Deliver Tall, Fair Bright Kids

Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh’s health wing is undertaking a project to get dark, short low IQ parents to sire tall, fair and bright kids as part of its project to make Samarth Bharath (strong India through Uttam Santati (perfect child), reported Indian Express.

The paper reported quoting officers bearers of Arogya Bharati that “the project was inspired by Germany, which they claimed had “resurrected itself by having such signature children through Ayurvedic practices within two decades after World War II”.

“Our main objective is to make a samarth Bharat (strong India) through uttam santati. Our target is to have thousands of such babies by 2020,” said Dr Karishma Mohandas Narwani, national convener of Garbh Vigyan Sanskar project.”

The project spotlights a certain section of Indians’ obsession with the West, its economic muscle and beauty standards. Prejudice against dark skin is deeply ingrained in Indian society. It came out recently when African nationals were attacked in Greater Noida, triggering a debate on racism in India. The attacks were fuelled by Indian’s tendency to prize fair skin over dark.

Recently, Tarun Vijay, a leader of the BJP, which is the ideological parent RSS, had kicked up a racism row after he suggested that Indians cannot be called racist as people live with those from south India who are "black".

The paper reported that the project was launched in Gujarat over a decade ago, and taken up at the national level in 2015. Today, the project, assisted by the Sangh’s education wing Vidya Bharati, has around 10 branches in Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh, with more units to come up soon in Uttar Pradesh and West Bengal.

The project claims to have ensured the delivery of 450 “customised babies” so far, and its target is to have a Garbh Vigyan Anusandhan Kendra, a facilitation centre, in every state by 2020.

“The parents may have lower IQ, with a poor educational background, but their baby can be extremely bright. If the proper procedure is followed, babies of dark-skinned parents with lesser height can have fair complexion and grow taller,” said Dr Hitesh Jani, national convener, Arogya Bharati.

The prescription says what to eat or not to ear before planning to have baby, looking at planets to see if it augurs well to have sex, and a long list of dietary chart.

Jani, a veteran RSS swayamsevak who also heads the panchkarma department at Gujarat Ayurved University in Jamnagar, said the procedure to get an “uttam santati or a customised child is mentioned in the (Hindu) shastras”.
