Idea of fair, tall, customized baby "rooted" in Nazi Germany, RSS' Golwalkar wanted crossbreeding with Brahmins

Guru Golwalkar
By Our Representative
Facts have come to light suggesting that the RSS’ experiment to have “fair”, “tall” and “customized” baby has an interesting Gujarat connection: It was first reportedly floated by its topmost ideologue Guru Golwalkar way back in 1960 while giving a lecture in Gujarat University.
A top expert has quoted Golwalkar as saying at a gathering of faculty and students of the School of Social Sciences of Gujarat University on December 17, 1960 that Namboodiri Brahmins from North India were sent to Kerala to “improve breed of Hindus there.”

Taken from the RSS’ English organ “Organizer”, dated January 2, 1961, Golwalkar is cited as saying: “Today experiments in cross-breeding are made only on animals. But the courage to make such experiments on human beings is not shown even by the so-called modern scientist of today.”
Accusing “human crossbreeding” as it existed then as “the result not of scientific experiments but of carnal lust”, Golwalkar insisted on the need to look at “the experiments our ancestors made in this sphere.” 
And how was done? Golwalkar believed, “In an effort to better the human species through cross-breeding the Namboodiri Brahmins of the North were settled in Kerala and a rule was laid down that the eldest son of a Namboodiri family could marry only the daughter of Vaishya, Kashtriya or Shudra communities of Kerala.” 
Further: “Another still more courageous rule was that the first off-spring of a married woman of any class must be fathered by a Namboodri Brahman and then she could beget children by her husband.”
According to the expert, Prof Shamsul Islam, who taught in Delhi University, “The RSS belief of Aryan superiority has been borrowed from Hitler and his Nazi Party of Germany.”
Pointing out that it was Hitler who declared that the ideal “Aryan” was blond, blue-eyed, and tall, Prof Islam says, “Beginning in 1933, German physicians were allowed to perform forced sterilizations, operations making it impossible for the victims to have children.” 
“Among the targets of this public programme were Roma (Gypsies), an ethnic minority numbering about 30,000 in Germany, and handicapped individuals, including the mentally ill and people born deaf and blind. Also victimized were about 500 African-German children, the offspring of German mothers and African colonial soldiers in the Allied armies that occupied the German Rhineland region after World War I.”, he adds.
The expert claims, “The present project of RSS aimed at producing ‘fair’ and ‘tall’ ‘customised’ babies is direct borrowing from the Nazis’ ‘Lebensborn’ (Spring of Life) programme to create an Aryan master race.”
“Under this project of breeding of children of pure Aryan race, some 8,000 children were born in Germany and around 12,000 in Norway as part of ‘Lebensborn’ under the direct supervision Nazi theoretician and leader, Heinrich Himmler to encourage women of “pure blood” to bear fair-tall Aryan children”, he adds.
“The RSS project of ‘uttam santati’, a white and tall ‘customised child’, in its first gear attempts to follow the Nazi Racist project, ‘Lebensborn’,”, contends the professor.

It is believed that mankind originated in Africa.

According to theory of evolution man evolved from monkey. According theory of atavism a creature may oddly exhibit pre-evolutionary traits.

Now reading this article from counterview and also listening to many so called Indian secularists, one can reasonably assume that mankind must have evolved in India. The reason is these people provide a living example validating the theory of evolution and theory of Atavism.

Africa does not seem to provide such living examples.
