Q1) What is Azad Hind Fauj organisation?
Deepak Kumar Gupta: We started this organisation four years ago. The dreams of this organisation are the same as those of Subhas Chandra Bose. It is not a political organisation and does not oppose any political party. It is a social organisation.
Q2) Why you decided to leave VHP?
Deepak Kumar Gupta: I have not left the organisation, the organisation left me. Why VHP left me, I didn’t get it even today.
However, my time with RSS and VHP was very fruitful. Out of 60 years, I worked in RSS for 50 years.
Q3) Ram Mandir is being built. How do you see it?
Deepak Kumar Gupta: There is excitement in the air. Our long-cherished dream is now fulfilled. However, still there are miles to go. Construction of Krishna Temple and Kashi Vishwanath Temple is yet to begin.
Q4) What is more important-construction of Ram temple or providing employment to youth or strengthening of the economy?
Deepak Kumar Gupta: We can’t compare these things. Everything is important but the construction of Ram Mandir is the most important thing. We will survive only when our religion will survive.
Q5) Some organisations get a tag that they are right-wing organisations. But as you know in India we cherish unity in diversity. Here many religions live and flourish side by side. So how this right-wing tag will actually help in making Ek Bharat Shreshtha Bharat?
Deepak Kumar Gupta: I see it in a good sense.
Q6) From the past many years you actively worked in the national capital of India, Delhi. How do you see the politics of Delhi?
Deepak Kumar Gupta: Delhi needs strong leadership. The people of Delhi are unhappy with all the three political parties-Aam Aadmi Party, Bharatiya Janata Party and Congress.
Q7) Should we mix religion with politics?
Deepak Kumar Gupta: Absolutely yes. Politics without religion is sin. Just imagine, if you will take out religion from politics then what will be left? Only sin.
Religion does not mean Hindu, Muslim, Sikh, Christian. It means humanity.
