THE POLITICS OF BETRAYAL: THE STRANGE BEHAVIOR OF HINDU TRAITORS

by Dr. Babu Suseelan

An examination of the history of Islamic invasion, Christian colonialism, and continuous discrimination, and oppression of Hindus in India would lead us to consider the causes of Hindu subjugation.

Hindus must have a clear understanding of the uniformity of past brutal behavior of Islamic invaders, savage treachery of Christian Colonialists and Hindu traitors and collaborators in creating a lunatic asylum for Hindus. Gleaned from examples Hindu of traitors, we can get a clear, correct and comprehensive understanding of present predicament of Hindus. The nature of present destructive behavior of Hindu traitors, anti Hindu stance of pseudo secular and corrupt Hindu political leaders may resemble the past. Looking at more and more evidence of policies and programs against our eternal, sacred Vedic Dharma helps us to adequately explain the uniformity of destructive political behavior of Hindu traitors. It is uniform in the required sense (past and present) and it will indeed give us valid and true conclusions. And our conclusion is solely based on our knowledge of the past and present destructive behavior of Hindu traitors. And the conclusion is valid in the future.

It is no longer possible to ignore the fact that a battle is being waged against our sacred Vedic culture in India. Hindus in India are likely to find themselves increasingly at risk. On this occasion, Hindus must support the eternal Vedic Dharma and the Hindu community not remains silent in the face of improved aggression by Jihadis and missionary mafia, Marxist miscreants, corrupt Hindu politicians and Hindu traitors. It is time for Hindu community to safeguard our Vedic culture and pledge their efforts to weed out our enemy from within, banish Hindu sellout crowds and work towards Hindu unity, peace, freedom and to preserve our sacred Vedic culture, practice our Dharma and promote our eternal values and protect Mother India. Hindu activism and assertiveness is needed to ensure Hindu survival, Vedic spirituality for the benefit of Hindus and the world.

Even after independence from British Christian Colonialists, Hindus in India are relatively powerless, experience prejudice, stereotype, and exploitation. Hindus lack control over their lives, temples, cultural institutions and the media. In many states in India, Hindus compose a majority of the population, but they are systematically discriminated, exploited and subjected to violence, coercive religious conversion and political subjugation. Hindus are totally politically powerless and are controlled by Hindu traitors, Muslims and Christians. Hindus are not conscious that they are systematically and purposely signaled out for such discriminatory treatment and oppression.

HINDU SELLOUTS

Why there are so many “sellout” among Hindus? The Oxford English Dictionary defines “sellout” “to betray a person or cause for gain”. Examples in India include several Hindus (Jaichand, Nehru, Swami Agnivesh, Dig Vijaya Singh, V.P. Singh, Medha Padkhar, Puri Sankaracharya, Sashi Bushan, Ramila Thappar, Mayavathy, Mulayam Singh Yadav, Lalu Prasad Yadav, Karunanidhi ). In contemporary politics, most of our pseudo secular Congress party and regional political party leaders are subservient to Christians, Muslims and their political actions retard Hindu advancement. Hindus in general are servile or otherwise lacking a sense of pride in Vedic Dharma or spiritual tradition. They are dangerously antagonistic to Hindu well being. They are worse than an enemy. An enemy is socially distant. The traitors, by contrast is a person who is trusted because of his perceived membership in Hinduism until he shows his true colors by which time he has often done harm to those who viewed him as a kinsman or fellow citizen.

The politics of betrayal, destructive behaviors of saboteurs, traitors, and spies within have done much damage to our Vedic culture and spread adharma. The specter of betrayal haunts Hindu’s imagination. Suspicions regarding Hindu betrayal and destructive behaviors of enemy within continue to be omnipresent. From the outset of his political campaign against British Christian colonialists, Nehru, the atheist Congress leader has had to deal with doubts about his loyalty to Hindus. Questions regarding betrayal also dog BSP leader Mayavathy, Lalu Prasad Yadav, Mulayam Singh Yadav, Pranab Mukerji, Shiva Raj Patil, Sharad Pawar, Karunaidhi, and the Supreme Court Chief Justice Bala Krishnan. And the list goes on. The contours of Hindu anxiety over political betrayal and angst are not without reason. Political treachery, betrayal, and treason continue unabated. Selling out on Hindus is currently triggered by a wide range of actions including appeasement, special privileges for Muslims and Christians, Hajj subsidy, special status for Muslims in Kashmir and Converted Christians in Nagaland.

In India, Islamists and Christian organizations favor corrupt, pseudo secular, anti Hindu acquiescent politicians who from position of privilege who will neglect struggle for Vedic culture. It is genuine and natural for Hindus to fear that anti Hindu political leaders who favor organized Muslims and Christians who promote Hindu traitors and defectors who sap Hindu unity, and discourage strategies for resisting advances. They are constantly engaged in the maintenance of groups expend considerable energy seeking to promote cheaters, traitors, saboteurs, deceptive defectors, betrayers and enemy within who are knowingly or with gross negligence act against the interests of Hindus as a whole. Their approach neglects the requirement for maintaining national integration, equality, fairness and justice.

BANE OR BENEFIT?

Hindu “sell out” behavior of traitors is more of a bane than a benefit to Hindus and India. The “sell out” crowd imposes their definition of Hinduism on other Hindus. Obnoxiously intrusive, these traitors are not content with supporting anti Hindu ideologues. They want others to tell how to think, whom to love and how to be a real Hindu. They are reluctant to ask whether Muslims, Christians and Marxists have an obligation to respect human rights of Hindus and religious freedom. These Hindu traitors have betrayed our sacred Dharma and their unwillingness to pressure pseudo secular Congress party or Christian and Muslim fundamentalist, or persuade regional political party leaders like Karunanidhi, Samuel Rajasekhara Reddy, or Mayavathy to stop preaching their peculiar social pathology.

How should Hindus proceed, given the problem that Hindu traitors have created? One response is to repudiate and denounce Hindu traitors by all means necessary. Those who embrace Hindu traitors eschew efforts to create and maintain Hindu unity. They reject nationalism, Vedic culture, patriotism, because they object our eternal Hindu Dharma. They support the notion that Muslims and Christians need special privileges and political power and Hindus must maintain its boundaries as assigned to them by corrupt pseudo secular politicians. They reject demand for common civil code and national loyalty for Muslims, Christians and Marxists. They decline to follow Hindu Dharma and opt instead associate themselves with Jihadis and missionary gangs. Most Hindu traitors want to retain permanently a sense of group solidarity with Islamists in social, cultural and political life. They seldom attend any Hindu festivals but invariably throw Iftar parties and praise Jihadi leaders.

Hindus need collective action. Collective action however requires coordination, and coordination requires discipline, and discipline requires coercion or threat of coercion. Any community that thinks itself as a community must draw lines. Community leaders must have an obligation to decide that certain behavior of treachery and disloyalty will result in excommunication. For Hindus, it is legitimate to set up parameters. There must be some political and intellectual behavior that keeps one from being a Hindu.

The “sell out” rhetoric is harming India and Hindus. In the name of freedom and intellectual liberty Hindu detractors claim that calls for Hindu unity had the consequences of undermining rather than encouraging a healthy national integration. For Hindu traitors, Unity means solidarity with Jihadis and diversity means coercive and deceptive religious conversion of Hindus by missionaries.

I see no reason why in principle, a Hindu traitor should not be subject to having his membership in Hindu community revoked if he chooses a course of conduct that convincingly demonstrates the absence of even a minimum of alliance with our sacred Dharma. Vasudeiva Kudumbakham and pure tolerance does not mean dislike or hatred for Hindu traitors. Hindu haters assert that there is no more freedom than the freedom to think and to believe based on personal conviction no matter how unpopular that belief or conviction. What about the thought, their belief, their personal conviction that beheading or forceful conviction is the proper destiny of certain people? I am not willing to permit room for such thought as long as I am confident and assertive. If belief in say, Jihadism had any plausible chance of growing, gaining adherence and rising to power in our country. I would favor immediately crushing it.

Hindus are justified the imposition of restrictions on stifling orthodoxies without embracing the proposition that any idea, no matter how brutal and dangerous, should, on principle, be immune from suppression. With virtual unanimity we should make Hindu traitors like Swami Agnivesh a pariah. Are we wrong to do so? I think not. Pseudo secular Hindus and Marxists may speak as if ostracism, per se, is wrong. I think ostracism is good- ostracism of Jihadi terrorists, fascists, corrupt politicians and purveyors of other hateful, ideologies. It is progressive the successful repression of such ugly ideas and their attendant modes of violent conduct.

Imagine if Hindus could have jointly taken collective, appropriate and effective action against Islamic invaders, Criminal Robert Clive and his gang of looters? If we had taken collective action against Jihadi murderers in 1945, 1946, and 1947, instead of fasting, Sathyagraha, passivity and indifference, we could have saved millions of Hindu lives. Unfortunately our leaders have made them blind inactive zombies by Hindu sell out by political leaders. Hindus should have denounced Hindu sell out leaders and the fear of reprisal would have acted as a coercive influence. Our politicians join with Jihadis and missionary mafia because they are not physically harassed or intimidated by Hindus. More politicians would have evaded Muslim league if they faced the fear to do so. Such Hindu traitors should not exist or should not have participated in traitorous behavior. Sell out behavior and its concomitant attitudes, gestures and demagoguery must be ostracized if need be with political violence. These Hindu betrayers must be taught a lesson and must be part of the unavoidable cost of betrayal. The corrupt, anti national, pseudo secular Islamized monitor our activities and make it dangerous for Hindu activists who challenge Hindu traitors.

Hindus will also face “self appointed” guardians of Vedic virtue. Thus chiding of Hindu political correctness is itself an effort to police the boundaries of good conduct within Hindus. Secular Hindus permit Hindus to be intimidated and force Hindu groups into silence. Their reticence may be more accurately characterized as intellectual treason.

In the end, those Hindus who want to maintain the universal nature of Hinduism must consider the dysfunctional aspects of such intellectual treason. Promoting mindless universalism and the perils of pluralism must recognize the balance between collective Hindu unity and intellectual treason promoted as individual freedom. Acknowledgement of this dilemma will facilitate healthy rejection both the indifference to real pluralism and freedom displayed by devotees of Hindu traitors. They must be clearly labeled as betrayers and their actions must be rejected or regulated. The betrayers should be made to feel at least some of the pain that their action has wrongly inflicted upon an undeserving target.

If Hindus are active and assertive, such errant Hindus will find themselves subjected to ostracism, political betrayal will hopefully become less a weapon of Hindu bashing or demagoguery.

For example, Swami Agnivesh and Puri Sankaracharya are enemies of Vedic Dharma. Hindus should hold them to an even higher standard, not provide them with a way to weasel out of taking responsibility for being traitors. Swami Agnivesh statements against Hazzare, Puri Sanjkaracharya endorsing Missionaries and Jihadis, Ramakrishna mission celebrating Christmas and singing carol and Stahya Sai Baba’s ashram spending money for erecting Nun Thesis’s statues are absolutely reprehensible acts. The animosity towards them should be no surprise given the offense they are charged with committing. Supporting the enemies of our Vedic culture, they are the most vilified in the history of modern Hindus. Their names have become synonymous with selling out. Swani Agnivesh is what Judas to Jesus, a traitor and what Brutus to Caesar-an assassin. Imagine how Israel would have felt if the collaborator had been awarded a medal of honor or if, after India’s independence, Jinnah had been declared as the father of the nation.

Atheist Nehru can be called a charter member of the “Hindu sell out Hall of Shame”. Nehru should be called what Eichmann was to the nation of Israel.

Advani and Sinha recently declared Mohamed Ali Jinnah as a secularist—this can be considered inviting Hitler to participate in a debate on religious freedom. BJP leader Atal Bihari Bajpai has invited Pope Paul to India. It would be a similar to inviting Hitler to come speak on the rights of Jews. Such leaders deliberately feed society’s stereotypes about Hindus and do so for applause from our enemies and for personal gain. They denigrate the hard work, sacrifice and struggle of Hindus against fanatic Jihadis and aggressive and deceptive religious converters. They commit the crime of reassuring our enemies. We are justified in according such terms to our political leaders participating in “drive-by-shooting” of Hindus. Hindus ought to give serious thought to convict such leaders in the court of public opinion for intentionally undermining Hindu well being or for utter indifference to the collective interest of Hindus.

As political leaders they know or should have known better that to say what they say, because what they believe conclude what they conclude. It is this sense that all “sell outs” know better or should have known better that prompts their accusers to view them as social criminals who are acting outside the bounds within which reasonable people can reasonably disagree.

Leading shapers of Hindu public opinion must fervently discredit such Hindu betrayers for a variety of reasons. One is the pulling up or burning the bridge. Such people crosses ridges built by Hindus, torches them and pretends that bridges are unnecessary, that those Hindus who criticize them are too lazy or unintelligent.

Swami Agnivesh, Arunthathi Roy, Sashi Bushan, Ramila Thappar, and many other Hindu betrayers can be characterized as servile figures for Jihadis and missionaries. What should one make of their attack on Indian democracy and endorsing Jihadi terrorists? Their false and misleading political statements are deeply flawed, its vulnerabilities, however, have often been obscured by misleading arguments voiced by some of the media’s influential anti Hindu and national detractors.

We should pose the following questions to such Hindu traitors. Under what rationale do such traitors show moral courage to become hostile to our Sanathan Dharma? Whether Hindus ought to tolerate or support a policy that discriminate followers of Vedic Dharma? Surely, it would be improper to criticize or repudiate a policy that promotes national integration and Vedic Dharma. If the polcy is promoting closed dogmas, sharia law and special privileges for Muslims and Christians, it should be rejected. Hindus should consider seriously whether the government has the right to establish or continue discriminatory policies against Hindus? We need a strong campaign to ostracize such anti Hindu bigots leading the government.

HOW TO PROTECT AND PROMOTE HINDU DHARMA

It takes courage and perseverance to be kind of intercessor who will make a difference. It is not always easy. But if Hindus have an interest in putting Vedic culture in to our life, into our nation, and if you are an authentic Dharma warrior or a Hindu leader, or follow Vedic Dharma, you can clearly recognize the call of Bharat Mata (Mother India), to intercede and wage a spiritual war against the enemy.

For historical reasons, Hindus forgot the requirements for maintaining our community-policing the Hindu boundary-the benefits of appropriate ostracism (the suppression of ideas, and conduct that ought to be suppressed). If there is going to exist an ideal community based on Dharma, there must also exist some point at every citizen must act and determine what is in the best interest of the Hindu community.

The word peace, pluralism, universalism, Vasudeviakudumbhakam, “all religions are the same”, etc has permeated the thinking of Hindus for decades and flowed from number of pulpits. But there is less peace in India today and more hypocrites selling it like snake oil peddlers.

The worshippers and preachers of mindless universalism, “all religions are the same” are the supreme Hindu idealists who never abandon their dream even if their na├»ve act lead them to inadvertently make tyrants stronger and create living conditions for Jihadi terrorists, and missionary mafia peaceful. Such preachers impede peace, coexistence, pluralism, spirituality and progress and they are nothing more than a handmaiden to Jihadis and conversion gang. They often create a catastrophic erosion of safety and security for the peace loving Hindus. Do Hindus have to support such spiritual leaders to make one sided concession to our belligerent enemy? Hindus should remember that peace comes from strength (Shanti Comes from Shakthi) and Hindus should create a new paradigm and do not become prisoners of history fabricated by our enemies.

It is time for Hindus to join together and overcome denial, paralysis of social action and cognitive disorder, indifference and apathy and consider that ideological diversity, tolerance of intolerant dogmas, compromise with corruption, mindless universalism, tend to obscure the tragic dilemmas with which Hindus have continually faced. Hindus should realize that confronting pseudo secularist Hindu traitors, corrupt politicians who are pro Jihadists, even at the cost of violence is a mere survival strategy. And it is in the best interest for our Vedic culture.

Hindus must also confront vehemently so called perverted intellectuals, anti Hindu media persons, alienated academicians who have forsaken Dharma in return for monetary and other benefits supplied by our enemies. Hindus as a group must inflict injustice through ostracism on such traitors. The self appointed guardians of Hinduism equate intellectual malaise as political correctness.

Several Hindu spiritual leaders and their followers have fallen prey to what amounts to a conspiracy of silence about a variety of issues including Jihadi terrorism, religious conversion, corruption and Sharia law. They are fearful of engaging in a candid appraisal of pathetic Hindu conditions because they do not want to appear to be disloyal to fanatic Muslims and Christian fundamentalists. This has serious negative consequences for the ability of Hindus to grapple with the real problems Hindus are facing... These Hindu traitors are not promoting Vedic Dharma or Hindu spiritual tradition. Hindus must unite and stick together to preserve, practice, promote our Dharma for the present and future generations.

Is it in the best interest of Hindus to play a part in building passive, inward-looking, non-directive, institutions? Do such practices further the interests of our Vedic culture in as much as it tends to be disproportionally burdened by Islamic violence, Coercive religious conversion, corruption and apathy? Does special privileges for Muslims and Christians on balance, hurt Hindus or promote national integration? How do we respond to reckless Hindu traitor’s rhetoric and assault on our Dharma? How do we eliminate or neutralize Hindu “Trojan Horse” and “turn coats”?

WHAT CAN ONE HINDU DO?

How should Hindus proceed, given the problem that Hindu traitors have created? One response is to repudiate and Hindu traitors by all means. Those who embrace Hindu traitors eschew efforts to create and maintain Hindu unity. They contend that no Hindu should feel morally bound to express superiority of Vedic dharma.

Then, how do we know when our fellow Hindus need our intervention? How do we move forward? Do our activities really battle adharma? Can we thwart plans of our enemy? Before we get into the ABCs of intervention, let me tell you... Our enemies are well protected by anti-Hindu media, by government establishments and our ideological enemies. The security that they happily enjoy is nourished by key ingredients of our pathological tolerance, they face no restraints and there are no attempts to overcome unjust rhetorical practices and are often ignored by sympathetic onlookers.

Hindus should resist this perverted absolution. Hindus can insist that everyone ought to be paying much more for the Vedic culture. Some Hindu leaders even contend that proper respect for Vasu Deva Kudumbakham entails endorsing Islamic dogmatism and coercive religious conversion. They silently dismiss the demand for maximalist sacrifices from, Pseudo secularists, Marxists, and Christians for preserving India’s Vedic Culture. Hindus need a strong campaign to ostracize anti Hindu bigots. There is nothing wrong in denying traitors the prestige among Hindus and have a provocative new look on contemporary issues.

Increase role networks, interpersonal influence, and develop systems perspective and never paralyzed by anxiety and stimulate fellow Hindus conceptually and emotionally. Expose misuse of power of corrupt political leaders and ensure their defeat in elections. Provide assertive training for Hindus developing skills, positive attitudes and encourage Hindu activists to assume leadership role.

Hindus may encounter strong counterforce that may threaten our existence, organizations, and programs. These powerful negative anti Hindu forces must be controlled or they will control us. To be effective and to intervene we need to know the traps the enemy lays for people as they intervene. There are plenty of sad stories of gross error and problems with past Hindu groups. Many Hindu groups are weak or ineffective because of a lack of strong leadership. Motivating Hindus to acknowledge and act can be challenging. Loving Hindu Dharma and pure tolerance does not mean what Hindus can say, can think or do or be. But we need to act now to accelerate the process of positive change for preserving, protecting and promoting our eternal Vedic Dharma for India and the world.

VISIONS, STRATEGIES AND PRACTICES

Develop innovative and relevant training materials and resources that enable Hindus to address challenges.

Provide significant opportunities for growth and learning to become assertive and proud in our Dharma.

Always question and challenge Hindu traitors and “sell out” phony secular leaders and corrupt politicians.

Identify new Hindu leaders and new ways of operating that embrace our Santana Dharma and abandon practices of yesterday that no longer achieve results today.

One must not make our tolerance, universalism, and spirituality as the excuse for not being strong enough to stand up to protect our Dharma.

There is always the need to recognize approaching danger over the horizon and act with all available power before it actually arrives.

Always act in a pro-active manner for the self-protection and for Hindu Dharma.

Never compromise with the onslaught of adharma or suffer silently with tolerance.

Never philosophize evil perpetuate by our enemies with false sanctimonies as if we get some spiritual credit.

Burgeoning Muslim reservation seals Hindu fate only

With State Assembly election in Uttar Pradesh around the corner, and its campaign clearly floundering, the Congress has embarked upon a dangerous path that can only lead to social conflict. The party’s cynical move to set aside a quota for ‘backward Muslims’ within the 27 per cent reservation in Government jobs and educational institutions meant for the ‘Other Backward Classes’, is frighteningly myopic and must be thwarted. This is more than an electoral gambit and cannot be wished away as a tactical manoeuvre of insignificant consequence. It is calculated mischief with an eye to the Muslim vote of Uttar Pradesh.

The same calculation is reflected in Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati’s demand that Muslims be given their own quota in jobs and colleges. Both the Congress and the Bahujan Samaj Party could argue that they are merely paying heed to a demand voiced by Muslims, but that is far from the truth. For what is being sought to be done is to brazenly pander to a communal demand that flies in the face of the Constitution, its provisions and, indeed, its secular character in the hope that this will result in securing the support of Muslim voters who form a significant block in Uttar Pradesh and could swing results in several constituencies. In a closely contested election where four parties are locked in battle such consolidation could tilt the balance towards the Congress if it is allowed to proceed with its mischief.

Worse, if the Congress is allowed to have its way with demarcating a separate communal quota, it will prove to be the proverbial thin end of the wedge: From here to an aggressive revival of Muslim separatism is only a hop, skip and jump away. The demands that will follow will range from legitimising shari’ah courts to forcing women to stay at home. These demands have already been voiced from various for a and by institutions that claim to represent India’s Muslims, including Darul Uloom Deoband; conceding the demand for a ‘Muslim quota’ will add traction to them and fetch a hostile blowback.

No purpose is served by risking communal discord and this message needs to be driven home. The spurious recommendations of the Sachar Committee which has meticulously collated manufactured grievance to justify its claim that Muslims get a raw deal in this country and active state intervention is required for their social and economic development need not be cited as reasons for creating fresh social strife. The Congress-led UPA regime has already injected communalism into the planning process by setting apart funds for ‘special development’ of minority-dominated districts although statistically poverty among Hindus is far more widespread than among Muslims. The Prime Minister’s misplaced assertion that minority communities have the first claim to development funds has further fuelled apprehensions. If the Government were to now push through a communal quota, those apprehensions will be further strengthened. Muslims, like their fellow citizens of any other community, aspire for good governance and opportunity, not favors from a paternalistic state.

Aseemanand questions bail to Malegaon 7, claims was tortured

Ten days after seven accused in the 2006 Malegaon blast case were released on bail, partly because of his confession that Hindu extremists were behind the attack, Swami Aseemanand has questioned the decision, reiterating that he had already retracted that statement made by him under “extortion”.

In a memorandum sent to President Pratibha Patil yesterday, with copies to the prime minister, home minister and the National Human Rights Commission among others, Aseemanand also alleged that he had been tortured “on account of my religion”.

“How can my extorted confession that was retracted be taken... to the aid of the Malegaon accused when no court has pronounced on my retracted confession? How can NIA (National Investigation Agency) support the bail pleas of Muslim accused in the Malegaon case in the face of the confession by these accused and the inputs shared by the government of India with the US and the UNO?” Naba Kumar Sarkar alias Aseemanand, who had been arrested in Mecca Masjid blast case in 2007, says in the memorandum.

“What a travesty of justice! On one hand a Hindu sanyasi like me is being made to suffer unimaginable and unbearable indignities by investigating agencies and state actors so as to extort my confessions. On the other hand, Muslim accused in the Malegaon case are allowed bail on the stand of the Union Home Ministry and the NIA using this extorted (retracted) confession,” stated Aseemanand.

In November 2010, he had been arrested by CBI officials from Haridwar en route Delhi, said Aseemanand. “CBI officials on several occasions stopped the vehicle on the roadside in pitch dark and made me kneel on the ground. After putting pistol on my temple they threatened to kill me if I did not act as per their desire. Upon my refusal they threatened that they would push me towards on-coming speeding traffic and that my death would be in accident. In this situation I felt ashamed that as a Hindu I have no human rights; I was subjected to torture on account of my religion. In custody, I was isolated. Losing all hope and to save my family members, I succumbed to their pressure and torture.”

He said that CBI officials “tortured” him to give 164 statements. He alleged that even in judicial custody CBI and NIA personnel enjoyed free and unregulated access to him. “On occasions even after midnight I was insultingly treated and (accused of) involvement in various blast cases. They also threatened to eliminate my mother, brother, and other relatives if I did not succumb to their demands,” stated Aseemanand, adding that when he was produced before the magistrate in Delhi on December 18, 2010, CBI officials were present in plainclothes and one of them “directed” him to depose “as per his instructions and the typed statement given by him”.

“Because of the immense mental and physical pressure I could not muster enough courage to tell the magistrate that I was making the statement under compulsion.”

He gave graphic details of his “unbearable physical torture” and stated, “They indicated that if I ever failed to tow their line, my mother would be brought from Hubli, I would be subjected to indignities before her after being undressed.”

“While in judicial custody in Tihar jail, I was kept in a cell along with two Muslim prisoners. They knew who I am. I was under traumatic condition and had no courage to resist the threats. I made the statement before the court as desired and tutored by the CBI officials,” said Aseemanand.

He said on January 15, 2011, he was taken to the room of “Dept” Superintendent, Central Jail Ambala, where NIA officials were present.

They gave him draft of the statement and directed him to make the said statement before the magistrate.

“Surrounded by such desperately deadly law enforcement agencies I again succumbed to the dictates of NIA officials and got recorded confessional statement on 15.01.2011 before the Panchkula court,” said Aseemanand, adding that ATS Rajasthan too “forced” him to write an application to become approver in the Ajmer blast case.

“Madam President, my confession was a result of the unimaginable physical and mental torture. This has been retracted. No judicial court has pronounced on my confession one way or the other. How can the accused in the Malegaon be shown indulgence of bail on the basis of my retracted confession when they had themselves given their confessional statement in the case? I get an impression that I am being targeted because I am a Hindu...,” said Aseemanand.

He added, “Madam President, it is astonishing to learn how after carrying out detailed investigations, and having informed the United Nations and the US about the involvement of Lashkar-e-Toiba and HUJi terrorist behind the Samjhauta blast, the home ministry has taken a summersault and started to rely upon criminally extorted confessional statement, which has already been retracted by me.”

Islamic hatred to Hindus knows no end

Even in the mid-80s and early 90s there was a hope (although faint undoubtedly) in the Indian political arena that with the spread of rapid urbanization to cope with the fast changing reality worldwide, fundamentalism will fall behind in Pakistan and hence, the saga of communalism there would lose its momentum. But that faint hope has faded too with the passing of years and latest documents prove that the entire analysis then was wrong and all these happened thanks to the inhuman dearth of knowledge with experience of the true nature of Islam among Indian intellectuals, perhaps a part of the legacy Hindus have been carrying on for more than last millennium. Here is the question. What’s the fundament behind concluding like this?

Only a few days back an US government report created sensation among several countries, not to speak of India. In accordance with the report the one and only aim of education system (depicted through text books in Pakistani schools) is to promote hatred and intolerance of minorities, the Hindus in particular and teachers look at these groups “as enemies of Islam.”

Pakistan and Social Studies textbooks are rife with negative comments regarding India and Great Britain, but Hindus are often singled out for particular criticism in texts and in interview responses,” said the report. “This intolerance and prejudice also extends to other minorities like the Christians and Ahmadis, who consider themselves Muslims but are not considered so by the Pakistani constitution.”

Well, you still, like any secular and left-wing intellectual, can thrust all these aside terming as fictitious or the ploy of an imperialist force to create havoc among two neighboring countries making efforts to comprehend and come near to each other after decades. But it’s not possible to close the eyes to words of Pakistani youth in this regard. Right?

A few Pakistani youth, attending a workshop conducted by the Sociology Department of Mumbai University these days, has stated clearly that young children in the length and breadth of Pakistan are taught to hate India. It is to be noted, the entire group is in the Indian financial capital as part of a mission of promoting the practice of harmony and bonding amongst the young people of both nations.

One of these happens to be Sitara Jabeen, an MPhil student in Peace and Conflicts Studies at the National Defence University, Islamabad and as per her, anti-India mindset, one time, was regarded as the true patriotism even if the need of a change and peace is being seriously felt there these days. Sidra Tariq, studying MPhil in International Relations at the Institute of Regional Studies, Islamabad, terms that both Pakistan and India are victims to terrorism. Same views have been shared by other members and Hina Anwar Ali, architect and youth activist in Lahore, was found to say that youth can work as a centre of peace process between the two countries.

But what about the verses in al-Qur'an spreading hatred against infidels? Some are listed below:

“And KILL them (the unbelievers) wherever you find them, and drive them out from whence they drove you out, and persecution is severer than slaughter, and do not fight with them at the Sacred Mosque until they fight with you in it, but if they do fight you, then slay them; such is the recompense of the unbelievers.” (Sura 2, verse 191).

“Let not the believers take the unbelievers for friends rather than believers; and whoever does this, he shall have nothing of (the guardianship of) Allah, but you should guard yourselves against them, guarding carefully; and Allah makes you cautious of (retribution from) Himself; and to Allah is the eventual coming.” (Sura 3, verse 28).

Pakistanis in the mission, like any other Muslim across the globe, can’t ignore this and here from, the entire dilemma starts. If ignored, Islam will have to be thrown out and no Muslim can go against it. He/she has got to digest and enact whatever Islam teaches and hence, talk of harmony and need of reduction of violence, secularism by Pakistanis or any Muslim is a prank. What can we deduce? This is an innovative approach to swindle infidels, especially Hindus, further.

Truth behind the appeal to Hindus

Vatican’s thinking about Indian Christians is not based on facts and that is why the Pope’s Pontifical Council for Inter-religious Dialogue issued a message for Hindus on the eve of Dipawali. The message urged Hindus to fight against anti-Christian propaganda in the country. The appeal says that Dipawali is the festival of the conquest of the forces of light over darkness. It says Hindus and Christian should jointly fight and pave the way for religious freedom.


The Vatican’s appeal is very shrewd; it justifies Conversion in the garb of freedom of religion.


The Vatican is well aware that the Catholic Church in India enjoys equal freedom to Hindus. The representative of Pope Benedict XVI, Archbishop Salvatore Pennacchio, directly appoints Bishops in India without any problem. The Church is continuously building new churches and schools in the name of minority rights. How much more freedom does the Vatican truly need?


The Vatican maintains that Christians have been victimized by Hindu extremists in the last few years and that this has posed problems for missionaries. But Vatican needs to understand that the main reason behind these conflicts is Conversion.


Many enquiry commissions set up by various states in Odisha, Karnataka and Madhya Pradesh have pointed fingers towards this direction. At the same time, all Christians enjoy the right and freedom to follow their religion in India.


The problem arises only when and where missionaries try to increase the empire of the church. Is this not a fact that poverty stricken areas of tribal regions are the target of these missionaries? Why do missionaries help only those who accept their religion? “Jesus had said that if you greet only your brothers and sisters, what more are you doing than others? Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly father is perfect. (Math. 5:47-48)”


Missionaries face problem only at places where they try to convert the populace. This has increased tensions in tribal regions. Hindu organizations believe that the Vatican is preparing the ground for conversions on the basis of huge foreign funds. The fact is that these funds are received for social activity. But there is no improvement in the conditions of those who have already converted.


Ten percent of the total population of Catholic Christians in India lies in the Chotanagpur region. Even church documents accept that 91.47 percent of domestic girl workers are Christians, while the non-Christian (Sarna) comprise merely 1.3 percent. Sixty percent of the converted SC (dalit) Christians comprise the total population of Christians in this country. Yet the Church is currently trying to include them in the list of Hindu dalits.


It is a clear admission that conversion does not open the doors of liberation. The opposite seems to be true.


Kanchi Shankaracharya Swami Jayendra Saraswati and some other spiritual leaders met with Cardinal Jean Louis Pierre Tauran, President of Vatican’s Pontifical Council for Inter-religious Dialogue for Communal Harmony in 2009, in Mumbai. Here everybody accepted that conversion is the main obstacle in the path of religious harmony. Now Pope Benedict XVI is meeting the world’s spiritual leaders in Asisi, Ital,y and they are again discussing communal harmony.


The problem is that the success of evangelical activity has been linked with an increase in numbers. India is no exception. In the north-east region, Protestants and Catholics are fighting among themselves. The local Catholic Bishop Jose Mukala says that Protestant Christians are forcing Catholics to become Protestant in the Kohima region. Properties of Catholics are being subjected to arson. They have appealed for their safety to the United Nations! Some years ago, Catholic and Protestant missionaries had agreed that they would not convert each others’ members; but the question arises, from where will the numbers come?


In October 2011, hundreds of tribal representatives from nine states were called by the Catholic Church to Bhopal, for an Adivasi Mahotsava. The motive was to liberate them from social, economic and political exploitation. They were indoctrinated that they were not Hindus and were free to chose their religion. The motive is obvious.


Two years ago, the Catholic Church had told the Vatican that the church is still in infancy stage among tribal people. The meaning is obvious. But now, the rift between tribal Christians and non-Christians is getting wider.


The Vatican appeal to Hindus talks about anti-conversion laws in some Indian States and the problems these pose for missionaries. But the Vatican must be made to understand that the Indian constitution permits citizens to follow any faith of their choice.


The Indian constitution allows citizens to propagate any religion. But there is a thin line between Conversion and Propagating a religion. It is the duty of the State to restrict the freedom of those whose only goal is to just convert people.


It is well known that wherever people have been converted, social tension has increased. Now, the onus of establishing social harmony lies on the shoulders of the Church. The Church should spend the money it collects in the millions on the welfare of those who have already been converted and are now being exploited inside the Church. The Vatican should think about their genuine liberation.

The Importance of the Cow in Vedic Culture

By Subramanian Swamy

Our West-influenced intellectuals sneer at the mention of the cow. The same intellectuals first sneered at yoga. Now it is a fashion to do pranayama at cocktail parties The arguments in the West for cow slaughter are no more uncontested. They also sneered at our sanyasis as `godmen'. Now they flock to ashrams with their white friends ever since the Beatles. Who knows, they may soon have a cow in their backyards.

India has 150 million cows, each of them giving an average of less than 200 litres of milk per year. If they could be fed and looked after, they can give 11,000 litres, as Israeli cows do. That would provide milk for the whole world. The milk we produce today is the cheapest in the world. With enhanced production we could become the world's largest exporter of milk and it could be India's biggest foreign exchange earner.

For those of us who are desi by pedigree and conviction, I place some facts about the cow in the perspective of modern Hindutva.

The cow was elevated to divinity in the Rig Veda. In Book VI, Hymn XXVIII attributed to Rishi Bhardwaja extols the virtue of the cow. In Atharva Veda (Book X, Hymn X), the cow is formally designated as Vishnu, and `all that the Sun surveys'.

Indian society has addressed the cow as gow mata. The Churning of the Sea episode brings to light the story of the creation of the cow. Five divine Kamadhenus (wish cows), viz, Nanda, Subhadra, Surabhi, Sushila, Bahula emerged in the churning.

Thousands of names in our country are cow-related: Gauhati, Gorakhpur, Goa, Godhra, Gondiya, Godavari, Goverdhan, Gautam, Gomukh, Gokarna, Goyal, Gochar etc.

They signify reverence for the cow, and our abiding faith that the cow is Annapurna.

In 2003, the National Commission on Cattle under Justice G. M. Lodha submitted its recommendations to the NDA government. The report called for stringent laws to protect the cow and its progeny in the interest of the rural economy, a constitutional requirement under Directive Principles of State Policy. Article 48 of the Constitution says: `The State shall endeavour to organise agriculture and animal husbandry on modern and scientific lines and shall, in particular, take steps for preserving and improving the breeds, and prohibiting the slaughter of cows and calves and other milch and draught cattle'. During the First War of Independence in 1857, when Bahadur Shah `Zafar' was installed as emperor by the Hindus in Delhi for a brief period, his Hindu prime minister, on the emperor's proclamation, made cow killing a capital offence. In Maharaja Ranjit Singh's kingdom, the only crime that invited capital punishment was cow slaughter.

The cow, according to the Vedas, provides four products for human use: (i) Godugdha (cow milk): As per Ayurveda, cow milk has fat, carbohydrates, minerals and Vitamin B, and even a capacity for body resistance to radiation and for regenerating brain cells. (ii) Goghruta (ghee): The best ghee, it is, as per Ayurveda useful in many disorders. In yajna, it improves the air's oxygen level. (iii) Gomutra (urine): Eight types of urine are used for medicinal purpose nowadays, among which cow urine is held to be the best. The Americans are busy patenting it. It has anti-cancer, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and antioxidant properties.

It has immune-modulator properties, which makes it useful for immune deficiency diseases. In the classics there are many references to cow urine as a drug of choice. Even the Parsis follow this practice.

Lastly, (iv), Gomaya (dung) is considered as valuable as Gomutra and used to purify the environment, as it has radium and checks radiation effects.

Ancient Hindu wisdom on the medicinal properties of cow urine is borne out by two patents granted in the US for cow urine distillate (Patent numbers 6410059 and 6896907).

Even China has granted the distillate a patent as a DNA protector. A global patent has been granted for cow urine, neem and garlic as a pest repellent and for fungicidal and growth promoting properties for different crops (WHO 2004/ 087618A1). A US patent has been granted for strains from Sahiwal cow milk for plant growth promoter phytopathogenic fungi controlling activity, abiotic stress tolerating capability, phosphatic solubilisation capability, etc. And CSIR has filed for a US patent for amrit pani, a mixture of cow dung, cow urine and jiggery, for soil health improvement properties.

These claims were initially made in the Charaka Samhita, Sushrut, Vaghbhati and Nighantu, Ratnakar, etc. They prove the utility of cow dung and urine for sustainable agriculture as well as for disease prevention.

The arguments in the West for cow slaughter are no more uncontested. There are better sources of protein than beef. Any dietician's chart shows that beef with 22 per cent protein ranks below soya-bean (43), groundnut (31) and pulses (24 per cent). One kilogram of beef takes seven kg of crops and 7,000 kg of water to produce.

Thus cow protection makes economic and ecological sense. Swami Dayananda Saraswati, convenor of the Hindu Dharma Acharya Sabha, has argued that non-vegetarianism indirectly contributes heavily to greenhouse gases and other pollution.

He quotes a UN report from 2006 that says, "Raising animals for meat as food generates more greenhouse gases than all the cars and trucks in the world combined". Ten of billions of animals farmed for food release gases such as methane, nitrous oxide and carbon dioxide through their massive amounts of manure. "The released methane", the report says, "has 23 times the global warming potential of CO2". For these animals to graze, virgin forests are cleared. The livestock industry also needs vast stretches of land to raise mono-crops to feed the animals. The CO2 that the trees and plants store escapes into the air when they are destroyed.

Growing fodder implies heavy use of synthetic fertilizers produced with fossil fuels.

While this process emits a huge amount of CO2, the fertilizer itself releases nitrous oxide (3) -- a greenhouse gas that is 296 times more potent than CO2. Alarming though these facts are, all that people have to do is to avoid red meat. There will be no need to breed millions of animals for daily slaughter. The animal population will consequently decline.

A single individual by not consuming meat prevents the equivalent of 1.5 tonnes of CO2 emissions in a year. This is more than the one tonne of CO 2 prevented by switching from a large sedan to a small car.

So there are a number of reasons to be a vegetarian. People who eat meat think a pure vegetarian diet is optional. But now they have no choice if they are alive to what is happening to this life-bearing planet. There is no justification for eating meat, given the devastating consequences for the planet.

A new fervor for a cow renaissance is necessary. It is constitutional (for India) and we should defend it with all our might.

Madrasa education confident to make society more unyielding in Bengal

There is an age-old saying – it’s futile to measure force of the blizzard before its first wind blows. The subject of minority education, especially Muslim education, that was lying dormant till the other day in Bengal has come to the surface out of the blue almost and is showing no sign to retire soon. On the contrary, it is gaining strength with each day it passes. And without doubt, vote-bank politics, sturdy enough to segregate a well-knit social unit even, is playing a great role here.

Islamic radicalism in Bengal is getting bigger once again; a representative body of private religious madrasas in the state has rejected Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s offer of affiliation to 10,000 madrasas. West Bengal Rabeta Madaris-e-Islamia Arabia alleges presence of a conspiracy to bring religious madrasas in political fold.

It must be kept in mind an identical claim has been with Muslims in Bengal for decades, if not more. What leads to this sudden renunciation then? After all Islam has hardly any relation to the philosophy of renunciation.

Mufti Abul Qasim Nomani, Chancellor of Darul Uloom Deoband, said, “Muslim should be aware of the government recognition offer for Islamic madrasas. Most of the Islamic madrasas in West Bengal are following the syllabus of Darul Uloom Deoband and Mazahir Uloom Saharanpur. Any madrasa run by Rabeta will never take Government recognition announced by the Chief Minister of West Bengal.” He has also said in glowing terms, “If Government wants to do something leave targeting Madrasa. Madrasa should have right to go their own way, destination Islamic Education.”

“Religious Madrasa should not take any Government Assistance. In Sachar Report we have seen only 4% Madrasa students. The rest are going to school or modern education centres. Government should take care of schools not Muslim-run Islamic Madarsa. Madrasas are teaching Islamic lesson. We have right to teach Islamic Education and build Islamic Educational Institution to our choice, which stated in Indian Constituency. We will abide Indian Constituency not State run Government Rule,’ Maulana Nomani also said.

If this happens to be the uncompromising posture of Islamic radicals in Bengal, dark days are ahead only. The aforesaid discourse speaks of bigotry merely, of a mindset that is always ready to exploit any situation to help Islam emerge victorious. This gets more confirmed when Darul Uloom Deoband and Jamiat Ulama-e-Hind madrasas were advised (in the conference of West Bengal Rabeta Madaris-e-Islamia Arabia) to keep safe distance from Government Financial help to run the madrasa. Madrasa, as it was heard in the conference, should follow common processes to collect donation from Muslim Community, society.

To cut a long story short, Islamic school of thought is not ready to mingle with other parts of the greater society and considers any such interaction nothing apart from a face-to-face encounter or vicious struggle. There is perhaps no room for peaceful co-existence in Islam and this makes it anxious all the time within itself. And its relation with others, accordingly, remains strained without respite. Society turns into the final casualty on the whole.

We can see writing on the wall already – the more madrasa education gets popular, intransigence rules the day.

AMU Study Center movement, Kishenganj propels neo-radicals

It is already known to all – Muslim students, desperate to have Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) Study Center in Kishenganj, Bihar, drummed up strong protests against delay in its establishment through creating a 15 hours of blockade throwing rail communication system in Eastern India out of gear on October 13, 2011. What followed next was a complete disaster as tens of thousands of railway passengers including Union Railway Minister, Dinesh Trivedi were left stranded. Even if the strike was withdrawn ultimately, damage had already set in.

Here is a minuscule picture of the crisis. According to railway department reports, no less than 30 thousand passengers including Railway Minister Dinesh Trivedi, on his way to Kolkata, were left stranded. Altogether 18 long distance trains like the Guwahati Rajdhani were badly affected. Some of these were - Rajdhani Express at Aluabari, Kamrup Express, Uttar Banga Express, North East Express, Saraighat Express, Bongaigaon Express, Teesta Torsha Express, Capital Express, Kanchankanya Express, Puri-Guwahati Express and others.

Apart from this NH-31 was also blocked for several hours and owing to it, movements of vehicles among states came to a halt. It is worthwhile to mention, people in the environs expressed their solidarity to the agitation through folding all activities.


What makes Kishanganj, town and district headquarter of Kishanganj district, Bihar a favored spot for AMU Study Center? As per latest statistics, the district, not to speak of the town, enjoys a high Muslim density; 70% Muslim population has made it a Muslim arsenal finally. On the word of local people, AMU Study Center has become a part of Muslim identity and this must be accepted since it was not possible for a mere 100 protestors from an Islamic student organization to hold the state almost to ransom. They were joined by hundreds of Muslim activists of Trinamool Congress and Congress from districts of Kishanganj, Purnia, Katihar, Araria, Supaul, Khagaria and adjacent North Dinajpur, West Bengal.


If truth be told, a well-favored who’s who of Muslim leaders, cutting across political antagonisms, was present to spearhead the virulent campaign and express Islamic solidarity behind the cause. They included Chowdhury Abdul Karim, Cabinet Minister of West Bengal Assembly and also prominent Trinamool Congress leader, Tariq Anwar (MP), MLAs Akhtar-ul-Iman (RJD), Zakir Hussain (LJP), Mohammad Afhaq, Dr Javed, Mohammad Tousheef (all Congress) and West Bengal MLAs Gulam Rabbani and Ali Ramz alias Victor, former Bihar minister Haji Subhan, Araria Zila Parishad chief Shagufta Azim, ex-Kishanganj Zila Parishad chief Faiyaz Alam along with champions of Jamiat-ulema-e-Hind and AMU Students Union president A A Feroz. The meeting was presided over by Asrarul Haq, MP (Congress) – Kishanganj.

The presence of people from Bengal to lead the agitation is enough to spark debates regarding federal structure of India and the constitutional right of every state to manage its own affairs. This is coming to the fore in government circles of Bihar too but what do they prefer to steer clear of is that any Islamic movement tries best to accomplish the target – to preserve its own identity through challenging the hypothecated Hindu hegemony.

A few leaders, it has been learnt, has been charged for causing public damages along with public inconvenience. They are Ghulam Rabbani (Trinamool Congress), Ali Ramz alias Victor (Forward Bloc), Convener of the Kishanganj Education Movement (KEM) for AMU, Wasiqur Rahman and patron Md Hanif – all from Bengal, Asrarul Haq (Congress MP from Kishanganj) and three Bihar MLAs Akhtar Ul Iman (RJD), Dr Javed and Mohammad Tousheef (both Congress). But it is also no secret that charges will continue to live in records only – none is ready to hinder Islamic maneuver and become a part of alleged majoritarian communalism (?).

There is no way to have a sigh of relief – entire episode was just a dress rehearsal while the real and sturdier performance may take place before long. It was indeed a great success, enough to embolden radical Islamic mindset. But there has been another more revelation – struggling for a demand (study center to take place in Bihar only) by people, cutting across political lines and above all state barriers, has scores of implications. To cut a long story short, Islamic movement is changing its course of action and accomplishment of AMU Study Center in Kishenganj will be its first success.

Need of constitutional safeguards to save Bengali Hindus

Fate of Bengali Hindus is dwindling – scores of reports, articles and meticulous investigations have evidenced this from time to time and unless something is done before long, the entire community will be doomed forever. Hence, there is the need of pro-active people to change the destiny. They can take lessons from Bimalangshu Roy Foundation in the Indian state of Assam – engaged in saving the community from ultimate ruin. It has asked for immediate interference of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi to execute Immigrant (Expulsion from Assam) Act, 1950, in the state as per Supreme Court directives and also to render the benefit of proviso to Section 2 of the said Act to the minorities of Bangladesh, persecuted, displaced and also compelled to migrate to different parts of Assam.

Dr. Rajdeep Roy, managing trustee of the Foundation named after his father, two time MLA from Silchar and a champion of the cause of the displaced Bengali Hindus in the past, has taken a leading part in this regard. He sent a letter to Singh and Gogoi on September 19 urging upon them to ensure constitutional safeguards for the Bengali Hindus who had been forced to flee from Bangladesh.

As per Dr. Roy, he appealed to the Prime Minister to recognize the displaced Hindu Bengalis as refugees and treat them as Indian citizens.

What does the letter include? In his letter to the Prime Minister and the Chief Minister, Dr. Roy said the history of Bangladesh, and its transition from a secular to an Islamic State, had left in its wake several episodes of genocide of minorities forcing them to take refuge in Assam. Moreover, discriminatory laws, such as Vested Property Act 1974 under which the government could confiscate property of persons deemed enemy of the State, had been responsible for appropriation of lands of minorities , thus acting as a catalyst for forced migration of minorities.

It was in this line that the Parliament while enacting the Immigrants (Expulsion from Assam) Act, 1950 specifically protected against expulsion, persons ‘who on account of civil disturbances or fear of such disturbances’ were displaced from or left their places and subsequently residing in Assam. Such provision was made in proviso to Section 2 of the said Act and this enactment was still in force unrestrictedly in Assam.
