Bharatiya Janata Party

Nor surprisingly, in the course of such interactions I came in contact with the BJP (Bharatiya Janata Party), another offshoot of RSS, and eventually met with several of its main leaders. I utterly failed to  see how this political party was fundamentalist, much less dangerous. They were quite liberal in their views, but from a Hindu and dharmic perspective, rather than the  standpoint of western humanism. Though called right wing in the India media, most of their views like their support of vegetarianism, ecology, yoga and Vedanta, and their resistance to western consumerism would be regarded as left wing in America. I eventually wrote articles for BJP Today on social and political topics on issues from the elections to nuclear testing to missionary activity.

After their election victory in 1998, I met with such BJP leaders as L.K. Advani, the Home Minister, who had been introduced to my work by Girilal Jain. Advani remarked that the journalists and media people in India were still unwilling to accept that a BJP government had come to power and were doing all they could to malign and destabilize it. I noted how much both the western and Indian media tried to denigrate this government, simply because it had honor and respect for the Hindu tradition.
