The recent issue of RSS-affiliated journal Organiser has an article that urges India to respond to China’s One Belt One Road (OBOR) initiative with One Culture One Region (OCOR). The article, jointly written by RSS swayamsevaks Ravi Shankar and Newton Mishra, says that since China “wants to dominate the region to overpower India”, India “should initiate to form OCOR, like SAARC for the Eurasian countries”.

It terms OBOR as an “imperialistic concept” that cannot “fulfill” the present “cultural vacuum” in Eurasia.
Underlining some “myths” inherent in the OBOR, it says that although China is claiming that it was “developed in the Han Dynasty in 220 BC”, the “Silk Road came in to existence only in 1877”.

The “second myth” of the Silk Road is that “silk was never the prime commodity to be traded” on this route. The “third myth” is that the route “was dominated by the Chinese traders”. “Indian traders actually travelled and traded in the entire Eurasian region,” the article says.

Contending that “the Chinese claims of OBOR have no ground”, it says “it was India, not China, which developed this region as a trading hub” and introduced ancient Hindu and Buddhist thoughts. It says that OCOR “can be the new hope for the Eurasian countries which have recently got independence from the imperialism of communist Russia”.

    With the help of USA based right wing Israeli Zionist Neocons groups, India's sold-out, paid-off traitors, have created a counterpart of Israeli Zionist movement known in India as RSS (Right wing extremists) to emulate Kaneset, with strong handed policies toward the minority Muslims based on the model of Israel's Palestinian control of the dissenting voices among the minorities, particularly, the Muslim voices of India. Since the making and planting of right wing Prime Minister Modi by Israel, train of destruction through deception, disguised as national security policies of India is let loose and the destructive results are already being witnessed by the world. Every policy that is handed down by the Israeli advisory Council through RSS, is being implemented to weaken the Muslim minorities of India. Unless the snake head of Israeli Mossad operating in India with total unrestrained movements is cut off, India is headed for a very rough ride through deceptive actions of Israel in India!

      If Narendra Modi had to bet his entire wealth on either OBOR or the none-existent OCOR on being successful, I have a feeling he will back the former. I think the entire Asia would also bet on OBOR
