EMES not Sheker
The Rosh Yeshiva was seriously troubled- actually in pain when he was compelled to take a negative stand, but Torah Judaism can only be built upon the foundation of emes. His kanaus was the result of genuine Yiraas Shomayim, fear -of Heaven, and a profound love for Yiddishkeit.
Horav Shneuer Kotler, zl, explained that his father , derived his kanaus from his deep love for Torah. His love was so encompassing Torah, he would become angry. It was a "call to arms." His love and excitement for Torah was so strong that he could not tolerate any infringement upon it.
