The visionary leadership quality of Dr.Hedgewar was highlighted by Sri Aaloor Shah Nawaz, Director of Documentary Films, in a seminar on the topic ‘Muslims – Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow’ held at Pallaptti in Karur District of Tamilnadu on 20th November 2010, organized by Uswa Library.
In his special address Sri Aaloor Shah Nawaz on ‘Foundation 2010, Goal 2050’ blamed the Muslims, particularly the Muslim leadership for having failed to notice the continuous struggle carried out by RSS to get a judgment in 2010 in respect of the Ayodhya dispute. He pointed out that Muslim leaders have failed to formulate action plans to counter the strategy of RSS. RSS has sown the seeds way back in 1942 itself by opening up Hindu schools and incorporating the epic of Rama in the curriculum and produced leaders to carry out their plans out of those who have internalized them. He questioned, ‘Do we have any one such leader like Hedgewar who could effectively plan and teach his followers of next generation to win? Is Hedgewar a real leader or are our leaders real?”
He narrated that Hedgewar laid the base for RSS in 1925. When he started the Sangh he did not plan to become the Prime Minister nor did he plan to become the Chief Minister of Maharashtra nor aim for becoming a Ward Councillor in the next five years. He had the dream of a hundred years. He had a long term goal. In 1925 he sowed the seed, planned and worked for it. He taught the next generation the working system which gradually led to Vajpayee, an RSS trained in his generation becoming the Prime Minister in 1997. Sri Shah Nawaz lamented, “Do we find such leaders like Hedgewar in our community who could think for his progeny? Our leaders wish to reap for themselves what they have sown. They are anxious to taste power or administration in their own life. They wish to reap in excess of what they have invested.” He concluded that all the Muslim leaders wish to be kings and there is none like Hedgewar who was a ‘King Maker’
