Madrasa, Urdu & Imams' Honorarium

Mamata Banerjee and fate of West Bengal

Tapan Kumar Ghosh

Mamata Banerjee has crossed all limits. Wearing a veil of secularism she has shamelessly surrendered to the Islamic fundamentalists. A commoner can well understands that this blatant, unparalleled appeasement would cause great harm to West Bengal. However, Ms. Banerjee and her band of adulators have lost even that rudimentary sense.

Last 3rd April, Mamata convened a meeting of Imams at Netaji Indoor Stadium in Kolkata. She proudly declared a monthly honorarium of Rs.2500 per head that would definitely benefit 30,000 Imams of West Bengal. Did she really not cross all limits in all its' ramifications? The Govt. is convening the meeting of Imams at Govt. expenses. Does any Govt. have the right? Who is an Imam? One who conducts a Namaz in a mosque is known as an Imam. So, he represents a particular religious community. Does secular constitution of India permit any Govt. to organize any meeting solely consisting of religious representatives of any particular community? If this be secularism, then what exactly does the term “Communalism” connotes?

More recently she has announced that the mosque Muezzins would be provided with a monthly honorarium of Rs.1000. Imam’s duty is to conduct Namaz in a mosque and the Muezzin’s job is to recite the azaan or the ‘call to prayer’. Is that anyway related to running the Govt.? No co-relationship from any angle. Payment of this allowance/honorarium does not devolve onto any secular, neutral Govt. However, unethical politicians, unscrupulous political harlots and opportunists have their own incontrovertible logic behind their every action. What made Mamata's govt. conclude that these Imams are stricken with poverty? During last decade have the number of mosques gone up or come down? Have those not gone up multifold? Have not the area, volume and floors of these mosques gone up exponentially? Anybody with an open mind can realize that throughout the length and breadth of West Bengal, mosques have sprung up anywhere and everywhere and their luxurious look clearly indicate free flow of omnipresent fund.

So, are these Imams really poor? Is there any public or private survey? Does that survey indicate Imam's poverty? Mamata Banerjee refers to Sachar Committee on the drop of a hat, but even that Sachar committee refers to ordinary Muslims and it has got nothing to do with Imams. However, Mamata came to realize that these Imams are real destitute that led her open up the state exchequer allotting no less than Rs.90 crore annual outflow towards this great, magnanimous, benevolent cause! Weird! Is this the so called “Change”?

Even for the sake of the argument, if Imams are under gnawing poverty, on whom would devolve that responsibility for its' alleviation? How a Govt. elected on popular vote can be made accountable for that? Have those persons chosen to be Imams on any public interest or purely on religious affiliation and beliefs? The doors for any work are not close to them in this secular India. They can be employed in any kind of service, they can do business, they can be agriculturists, be teachers and choose amongst numerous other professions to earn a healthy living. They have relinquished all other avenues to become Imams on purely religious conviction.

So, how does the duty to look after these Imams devolve onto this Govt.? Is this Govt. paying this allowance to 30,000 Imams out of the salary and allowance of ministers and lawmakers? NO. They will pay out from public money---that is your money, my money and people's money.

Who has given this right to Govt. to embezzle this money? For the sake of power and pelf and narrow political interest this shameless, bottomless, senseless, baseless, meaningless and reckless appeasement policy has been set in squandering scarce public fund leading to nothing short of an abysmal embezzlement. Mamatadevi, remember, the people will never forgive you.

Appeasement has really crossed all limits in all its' ramifications. CPI(M) has also done the same thing. They have reserved 10% jobs for Muslims. Our constitution is crystal clear on this that no reservation can be effected on the ground of religion. So, CPI(M) started looking for loopholes in the law. All Muslims, rich as well as poor, irrespective of financial status were categorized as ‘OBC’ & thus Muslims got coveted reservation. Mamata included 33 more castes to take the number of Muslim OBC castes to 98. She further declared, eight more castes will be included subsequently. She has also formed a task force to explore innovative possibilities as to how to hoodwink our secular constitution and make open the Govt. coffer for unbridled unconstitutional benefits to the Muslims.

This blatantly shameless and perilous act of Mamata has made common Hindus think that they are the 2nd class citizens of India. This highly discriminatory act numbs every right thinking Indian. In fact, all the political parties all across the spectrum in India have only one point of commonality in appeasing the Muslims and they compete with each other pandering to the instincts of electoral profit. Those who have further foresight clearly visualize in this sinister design a footstep towards converting WB into Pakistan. We have said many times “The blind can’t see the dark clouds of Pakistan in the sky of West Bengal. The deaf can’t hear the drumbeats of Pakistan in every nook and corner of WB”. A live demonstration of that got enacted on 19th/20th/21st March 2012, on the pretext of publishing a cartoon in The Telegraph. The media gagged such a vital news. So, people of distant places remained blind on those happenings. But Hindus of Park Circus, Rajabazar, Tikiapara, Basirhat, Mullikbazar saw those plundering with their own eyes. Many buses and cars were damaged. Traffic remained a standstill for hours. Men felt distressed, neighborhood remained cut off. Mamata’s police and administration simply vanished.

Police has got the hint as to what their duty is. They have to protect all types of unscrupulous and illegal acts of Muslims and mercilessly beat the Hindu mass. Did not the same signal propagate from this Imam meeting? All the top shots of Police heard with their own ears the slogan of “Narae takbir Allahu Akbar”. They heard the hypes of Insallah, Shobhanallah, Alaikum Salaam and the likes in a govt. sponsored meeting. Did these officers not understand what they have to do back in the Police Stations? That resulted in merciless beating of Hindu Samhati workers by police on 14th Feb and a message of good wishes and greetings from busy Mamata’s mobile on 15th Feb in the meeting of Jamaat-e- Islam blocking main thoroughfare of Kolkata.

Mamata has already declared that the ten thousand Madrasas those are outside the ambit of State Madrasa Education Board would be recognized by the state government. The curriculum of these Madrasas, the presentation as well as those conducting the courses will not only be completely beyond the purview of Madrasa Board or the control of the government but also they would be beyond governmental observation. Yet, they would have governmental recognition. The state government has not even an iota of idea as to how dangerous and perilous the consequence would be.

Do these madrasas teach its students to respect all religions and treat all religions alike? Only one religion is true, all other religions are false, lead us to hell are cursed in the eyes of god and worth destroying --- can such philosophy create an atmosphere of peace and harmony? Without thoroughly deliberating on these issues, without thinking the pros and cons; the whole state, the whole country and that of humanity is being pushed towards a crisis zone, a zone that is furthest from tolerance. Our question to Mamatadevi, does madrasa education impart any benefit to the individual student or to the country? 

Mamata is taking one after another decision highly detrimental to national interest. A series of ill conceived decisions rather. She has declared Urdu as the second official language in those districts of WB where Urdu speaking population is just 10%. This is another self suicidal and divisive policy. Domination of Urdu spurred the language movement in erstwhile East Pakistan. The Urdu speaking Pakistani rulers tried to crush the movement with a brutal crackdown. A sequel to this, out of Pakistan emerged a new nation Bangladesh purely on a linguistic basis. Recognition of Urdu in WB is a slap to the face of those language martyrs. It is an umbrage towards Bengali language a disgrace to those who had dedicated their lives for the cause of Bengali language. It is another glaring example of blatant communal appeasement. Neither the state nor its' people will be benefited a scintilla.

The Left Front Govt. had constructed an eight storey Hajj Manzil on VIP Road in Kolkata to facilitate Hajj Pilgrims. Immediately after assuming power in WB, Mamata thundered, “I shall make 20 Storey Hajj Manzil in Rajarhat.” It is a fierce competition between opposing political parties for appeasement. This is going on unabashed and unabated in WB. This rat race is going on and on round the clock on each and every issue. However, both these govts. were indifferent and nonchalant towards the cause of Hindu Pilgrims who visit Gangasagar every year on Makar Sankranti day during winter season. Forget about a 8 storey or 20 storey structure, not a single brick was laid down to give these Hindu pilgrims any shelter. In contrast to the luxury afforded to the Hajj pilgrims, these political Lords think that a tarpaulin shed in Kolkata Maidan or a temporary shed made of Hogla leaves in Gangasagar is more than sufficient for the Hindu pilgrims. Moreover, during the festival period, the bus fare from Kolkata to Gangasagar gets hiked 2.5 times and Steamer fare 6 times to squeeze these gullible Hindu Pilgrims. The central Govt. pays Rs.40,000 subsidies per head on Hajj pilgrimage. In India this is known as ‘secularism’.

Today's new generation might be too naive to understand as to what is going on in the name of change! The elderly persons understand the days of Suhrawardy prior to 1947 is back and this is exactly what Mamata has brought about. The next step is Pakistan. That is what had happened 65 years back and that is what is very much on the cards.

Hindus of Bengal, be ready to face that catastrophe that deluge, that nightmare. The political ancestors of Mamata Banerjee turned East Bengal into Pakistan.  Being the bearer of the same legacy and tradition, the posterior generation of Suhrawardy in the new incarnation of Mamata Banerjee would soon turn West Bengal into Pakistan. Thus would come true the cherished desire of Quaid-i-Azam Jinnah. Residents of South Calcutta, please ponder at least, the MP of South Calcutta Dr. Shyama Prasad Mukherjee once saved West Bengal from the clutch of Pakistan. The MP & MLA from the same area now, Mamata is all set to neutralize the work of Dr. Mukherjee and turning Bengali Hindus’ lives full of horrendous misery.

Shyamaprasad– Kashmir – Palestine – America

Tapan Kumar Ghosh
translated from Bengali

Without a shred of doubt, whatever government, in such a situation, that dares to succumb to Pakistan on Kashmir issue and present it the area as a gift will be dethroned by public outrage. And the same will call all related nefarious designs a halt. Hence, a brutal, nasty ploy has started covertly. The players in this game are known – politicians of both India and Pakistan who have capitulated to United States already. But they are not alone; a few pet intellectuals like Kuldip Nayar who leave no stone unturned to make this precarious design a success are accompanying them.

It is worthwhile to mention that during the NDA government’s rule, at the behest of Atal Behari Vajpayee, in Delhi, United States made great efforts to exploit this perilous situation. The foremost political party of then NDA was Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) under the aegis of both Atal Behari Vajpayee and Lal Krishna Advani. And both the party and its leaders were regarded as custodians of Hindu society. And above all they were part and parcel of the Sangh Parivar (family).

For that reason, an assortment of well-known Hindu organizations including RSS, Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP), Vidyarthi Parishad, Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh (BMS), Vanabasi Kalyan Ashram considered Vajpayee, Advani and their cohorts as dear and near ones. This made vicious contrivers of Kashmir design consider Hindutvawadi and Sangh Parivar as the greatest obstacle to accomplishment of their objective. Vajpayee, to auction off Kashmir, was selected as the best means by none other than the United States of America. Other political parties in India like Congress and others had already been bought.

Why would Vajpayee conform to American interests? Well, in this case, none should forget the brawny exponents of US Foreign Policy and well-bred, knavish officials of US Foreign Department. They were enough to find out the loopholes and through a painstaking study aided by apposite approaches, flaws of Vajpayee were found out before long.

Atal Behari Vajpayee, by then, had become Prime Minister of India but truly, he was no different one and was just like his predecessors. Sadly, this was not any strong or enough reason to make him a remarkable persona in history. How this coveted position could be attained? There was a need to have global certificate or deference and recognition, to have this. Jawaharlal Nehru had both of these and all these compelled Vajpayee to defect. US officials had nothing to worry; appointment of Brajesh Mishra, notable agent of America, within his core department, was made to stimulate Vajpayee all the time (for this) only.

Contrary to belief of many persons still, Gandhiji also had same kind of infatuation. He wanted to keep his own name alive for eternity through resolving Muslim problem in human civilization, proved to be an idea not viable already. Thanks to all these, he went on gradually to make every right a wrong, appeasing Muslims and impelling them to get more fundamentalists and turncoats. Khilafat movement was such a misdeed of him andit can not be forgotten ever. Hindus had to pay heavy price for all these; partition of India was the highest, without doubt.

Alike sort of greed was injected in Vajpayee too. He was witnessed to become esurient to solve the burning Kashmir issue, not possible for even Nehru-Patel to resolve. Vajpayee thought that settlement of the same would make his own standing in history perpetual. What would have been the best procedure to get the coveted success? It was to accept each and every demand of Muslims in Kashmir. And it is no secret that sole policy of Muslim majority in Kashmiris severance from India. He considered that to be the best and this severance would be granted to them in the name of “right to self-determination” or something akin to it. Not only this would settle Kashmir crisis once and for all, Vajpayee, from confidential sources, was also assured that such an approach would facilitate him to have “Noble Prize for Global Harmony”.

United States of America, through its myriad tried agents, enticed Vajpayee such and it was also accepted by the later with gusto. Well, this enticement was not any false one as well since, to Noble Committee under stringent American influence, peace in America is synonymous to global peace. Hence,had Vajpayee been successful in nursing the Kashmir wound of global Islam, he would be awarded the aforementioned Noble Prize.

Vajpayee, conforming to the design, did also progress a great deal. I, in 2003-04, had gone through direct contacts with Muslims in Kashmir and found out their admiration and veneration to Vajpayee. Muslims in Kashmir, by then, realized that Vajpayee had solved Kashmir mess. Only a sound proclamation of it was left.

All these indicate that a heinous conspiracy to detach Kashmir from India in the name of self-determination was in full swing. Indian National Congress, then main party in opposition, was also ready. Only a simple frown of Vajpayee was enough to calm all in BJP and Advani would rub his own hands. United States, on the other hand, did not undergo any trouble to convince leadership and its opposition in Pakistan. Rest of non-Congress political parties in Indiaare devoid of any precise Kashmir policy. And if there is any dissent still, showering of American dollars will be enough.

Nevertheless, Sangh Parivar was the greatest obstacle before the success, in particular some of its leaders like Thengri, Ashok Singhal, Sudarshan, too stubborn in every way of the term. They were not saleable at the same instant. And to steer clear of all these usage of BJP and Vajpayee, having pro-Hindu images and as integral parts of Sangh Parivar, happened to be mostprofit making. How can leaders of Sangh Parivar accuse BJP and Vajpayee asanti-nationals and traitors to auction off Kashmir then? Is it easy to criticize them suddenly when they have been praised always? This will definitely lead to a great confusion among Swayamsevaks and leaders and activists of Sangh Parivar. The time necessary to ward off allconfusions is enough to auction off Kashmir. Indian Army will be withdrawn from that area and be replaced with the Army of Pakistan or NATO. Taking all these facts into consideration, United States helped NDA wholeheartedly to win Parliamentary election in 2004.

Perhaps the sane reader can realize: Israel –Jewish Mindset – Sharon – Gaza Strip = India – Hindu Sentiment – Vajpayee –Kashmir.

But nothing can defeat the ill fortune or the aftermath of BJP’s treachery to Hindus. BJP underwent a humiliating defeat in 2004 election, in spite of running the government well, working for development, developing national economy. Leaders of that party, yet, fail to recognize that betrayal to basic ideology was the main basis of their crushing downfall.

Tapan Ghosh speaks at Hindu Samhati’s Third Anniversary

I would like to initiate the speech by paying tribute to venerable Swami Pradiptanandaji, venerable Swami Tejeshanandaji, Dr. Richard Benkin, Ms. Miriam Jones, my old friend Sri Dhananjay Pathak, Shailendra Jain, Arvid Mishra, Manishji, Amitav Tripathiji and the youth resolved to fight for Hindutva and MatriShakti.

Now there is a question. Why such a great leadership has been brought in?

It is to depict that the desperate struggles of Hindus in the length and breadth of the Indian state of West Bengal is not alone; it is advocated by like-minded people and an international force across the globe and similar struggles are taking place in all four corners of the world.

In 1947, during the partition of the then undivided India, there was a demand of East-West corridor by the protagonists of Pakistan movement, rejected outright by the then Indian leadership. But sadly and conforming to Sri Dhananjay Pathak’s speech, the corridor is becoming a hard reality more and more and the existing situations in West and East UP (Uttar Pradesh), North Bihar along with Murshidabad, Malda and Dinajpur (significant districts in West Bengal) denote the same. In accordance with international agencies, Pakistan and Bangladesh are enjoying bonhomie at the moment and are steadfast to get combined soon.

The Pakistan movement, from its inception in 1940, was ridiculed by both national and provincial leadership but within a span of 7 years it turned out to be a reality. But what is most unfortunate, the Indian leadership and intellectuals till date steer clear of revealing the same reality. And the bitterest truth is that Hindus are getting into a hopeless minority. If the modern statistics is taken into account, Muslims comprise 35% of the total population in Assam, 30% in West Bengal and 25% in North Bihar.

Now the questions remain whether the Bengali Hindus will become refugees once again. Muslims, at the present time, have 57 nations under their jurisdiction throughout the globe while Christians, Buddhists, Jews have 70, 10 and 1 nations respectively. All these bring forth a new question – is this not our land. Will the Hindus have to become immigrants like Jyoti Basu, Buddhadev Bhattacharjee, Mamata Banerjee, forsake this land and plead to Lalu Prasad Yadav and Nitish Kumar? Will all these fit the dignity of Hindus?

Hence, Hindu Samhati is waging a war against the adversaries and thanks to all these, within a period of 3 years, it has attained the present position. What is my greatest achievement then? By means of Hindu Samhati I have been able motivate Hindus to fight in no less than 50 places. Hindus would not bow down to anyone any longer. Only on yesterday Muslims destroyed temple in Village Howapota, Sankrail and in P.S. Minakha they assaulted a Hindu religious fair. All these prove police and administration in Bengal have become completely incompetent and the turmoil regarding the Taslima episode proves it best.

How can lessons in Deganga be forgotten? The Islamic assault in Deganga, North 24 Parganas (resulting from a planned and nefarious planning) took place on 06, 07 and 08 September under aegis of Haji Nurul Islam, Trinamool MP from Basirhat, and local Hindus numbering into several hundreds were brutally tortured. Hindus’ homes were looted and destroyed, temples and Deities were desecrated and shops were also put on fire by their Muslim neighbors. A Muslim zealot named Moklukar Rahman urinated on the idol of Goddess Kali in the Kali temple.

But the government and Chief Minister Buddhadev Bhattacharjee failed totally to rein in the situation; army had to be called in. The honorable CM even did not dare to arrest Imam Barkati of Tipu Sultan Mosque for instigation to the murder of Taslima Nasreen. But the same government proved to be quick enough to succumb to the demands of Muslim protestors and arrest editor, publisher of The Statesman (bailed out later).

Two other small incidents are to be mentioned. Father of Jyoti Basu, ex-CM of Bengal, had farsightedness (realized the fast deteriorating situation in spite of alleged Hindu-Muslim unity programs in then undivided India) and built up the house in Ballygunje unlike the hapless Matua community and millions of other people. The situation was no different with the Nehru family, natives of Kashmir, as well. Motilal Nehru, father of Jawaharlal Nehru, built a residence in Allahabad.

All these are great lessons for Hindu Samhati and that's why, enough is enough. Hindu Samhati is resolved to fight back. Hindus are no longer alone; whenever there is any news of atrocities on Hindus, news are broadcasted throughout the globe. There is another thing to be noted. Islamic Ummah is the greatest strength of worldwide Muslim community and it is therefore the time that Hindu Ummah must be built. Surely, the name would be Hindu Brotherhood or Hindu Solidarity or Hindu Consolidation or Hindu Samhati. It’s first and foremost aim would be to make all Hindus realize agonies of and tortures on Hindus.

Hindu Samhati workers would go on with the struggle.

Court Verdict on Ayodhya is a Historical Victory for Hindus BUT.........

Tapan Kumar Ghosh

In an environment of uncertainty and tension, spreading over the entire country, Lucknow Bench of the Allahabad High Court has given its Verdict on the disputed adjoining land of Ram Janmabhoomi Temple in Ayodhya. The verdict is a great victory for the entire Hindu community of India, as well as a shameful defeat of the so called secular and Muslim-appeasing intellectuals and the Marxist historians. All the three Judges of the Lucknow Bench unanimously ruled that (1) the spot of land is the birth place of Lord Ram and (2) there exists remains a grand archaeological evidence beneath the earth. All the three Judges were unanimous about the above two points of the case while one of them differed on the point of allotting one third of the land to the land to the Sunni Wakf Board..

More importantly, the faith (the spot is the birth place of Ram) of more than a billion Hindus has been accepted by the court of law. At the same time, the Court has also admitted the truth, that there was a Hindu structure (temple) which was pulled down by the Muslim invader Babur and transformed into a mosque (though no court order has yet mentioned that altered and disputed structure was a mosque). Now that they have been defeated in the court, the Marxist historians, who are also acolytes of the Nehru dynasty, are distressed that the Honourable Judges of the High Court have depended more on the Hindu religious belief than the historical facts and logic. But the fact is, that these historians are the same people who ignore logic and archaeological evidence. And they also do not respect a court verdict as well.

There are millions of temples around the world dedicated to the deity of Ram, then why is this particular place called the ‘Janmasthan’. The reason is very simple – from milleniums, Hindus are convinced that this is the place where birth of Lord Ram took place. Even when Babur converted the temple into a mosque with three domes, billions of Hindus still continued to believe it as the Janmabhoomi Temple and circumambulate (panchakoshi or chouddakoshi parikrama) that converted structure. And there is no doubt, that the High Court has delivered its verdict on the basis of all these infallible facts and declared the spot to be the birth-place of Lord Ram.

It is also important that the court has not delivered its verdict on any hearsay that there is a temple underneath the present structure but on the report prepared by the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI), a Government of India undertaking. The court also sought the opinion of the foreign experts who examined the place by digging more than 50 tunnels more than and carrying out experiments with most modern instruments. As a result of these experiments, the officers of ASI believe that still there lay a very large structure beneath the present one. These are not speculation but a reality as well as scientific evidence.

So, it becomes evident that in 1528 CE, Babur did not build the mosque so that the handful Muslims of his time in Ayodhya could offer their prayer to Allah, but to insult the religious sentiment of the Hindus.

However, are the Marxist and secular historians ready to answer a few questions?

How come the Kashi Viswanath Temple in Benaras and the Sri Krishna Janmasthan Temple at Mathura ended up getting converted to mosques? Did they come from heavens? If not, who had done that and why? It was the creations of Aurangzeb who belonged to the 6th generation of Babur. These people were foreign aggressors. From Babur to Aurangzeb, these aggressors lived in this country. But that could not weaken their temple breaking policy. And it is still surviving. This tradition tempted the Muslims of Deganga to break the temple and the idol of Kali, on September 6, 2010, and desecrate the spot by urinating. The tradition is continuing even after 482 years.

Starting from Mehmud of Ghazni, Muhammad Ghori, Babur, Aurangzeb to today’s Maklujar Rahman Baidya of Deganga, all are following the same tradition. As a result of this tradition, the people like Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, BJP leader L K Advani, Communist leader Jyoti Basu, Pramod Dasgupta, Buddha (Chief Minister of West Bengal), Biman Basu, author Sunil Ganguli, Shirshendu,, Priya-Mamata (current Union Railway Minister) –Sougata Ray etc. had to leave their ancestral house and take shelter in West Bengal and other parts of India as refugees. But their stupidity still persists. They are still supporting the Indian version of secularism which is synonym of Muslim appeasement.

They are still engrossed with the idea of secularism that in near future they have to surrender the West Bengal to the Muslims. The court verdict on Ayodhya may help Muslims open their eyes, but these secularists would never come to their senses. They would never wake up even if their land and properties are grabbed again, gold and valuables are looted again and even if there mothers, sisters and daughters are hurt in front of their eyes. But it would be a great achievement if the common people get alert, by the court verdict on Ayodhya, about their secular leaders.

Now we shall discuss another side of the court verdict, even if it may appear unpleasant to many. Many Hundu leaders are considering it as a big victory for the Hindus, but I beg to differ. I apprehend that court verdict may give rise to some form of uproar throughout the country. The court order wants to maintain the present status quo for next three months. When these three months are over, Muslims would raise their demand to hold prayer (namaz) in the one-third portion of the land allotted to them.

Another point I have an issue with is, that there is no mentioning of the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) and the Trust (called the Ram Janmabhoomi Nyas) in the court verdict. The third party in this case is Lord Ram Himself. Only his devotees have contested the legal battle on His behalf. Who have won the case? The deity of Ramlala Himself? And hence the sanctum of the temple would be the place of idol of Lord Ram, but who will build the temple? It would not be possible for the Deity of Ram to tell someone – “You build the temple”. Who will build the temple? And that would be the moment when government would come into the picture. Hence, as a matter of fact, the organization that started the Ram Mandir movement, who collected funds for building the temple, and went unrecognized in the court verdict.

We have now reached the concluding part of this article. A new phase of the movement soon start, so that the remaining hurdles can be removed fromm the path of the new Temple. The moot question though still is, whether Hindu Samhati (HS) would join the movement? Most people may be amazed to know that, I do not find it right or logical for the HS to join the movement. Many may also be displeased but I am helpless. I cannot lead my comrades and my sympathizers astray. One cannot assure me that another movement for building a temple will ultimately lead to building a temple.

I ask the reader two questions. Firstly, from 1986 to 1992, the movement for temple building was the most wide-spread one after independence. Do the Hindu organizations, at present, have capability of organizing a more wide-spread movement? I can say, no. So, is it now possible to build a temple, by over-coming all the above mentioned hurdles? If it is not possible, then starting a new movement would be meaningless. Then, why should there be a new movement? To speak the truth, simply to gain political mileage, and that is reason why common Hindus considering temple movement a treachery.

In reality, it was true. Only a few people were gathered to join the program. Then we have seen the program of chanting of the victory mantra – “Sri Ram, Jai Ram, Jai Jai Ram” with no visible result. Only one year ago, we have seen the “Vishwa Gau-gram Yatra”. Did any one have seen a result of that movement? (One should notice that both the above mentioned programs reflect an attitude of compromise, not resistance against the well defined adversary). So, it was not possible to build up a movement that we have observed in the decade of 90. If at this moment, we encourage our members to take part in the temple-building movement, that would certainly weaken the struggle for saving West Bengal from Islamization. And that would be suicidal for the Hindus of West Bengal.

In this context, the reader may recall that during the freedom struggle, when the Hindus of East Bengal were fighting against the British colonialists, they did not care that they were going to be landless soon. And as a result, when they obtained freedom, they were turned into refugees. They obtained freedom with partition. But at present, if we focus on temple building, our attention would be shifted from the aim of preserving our geographical boundaries. That would be disastrous for the Hindus of West Bengal.

The reader may also recall, in 1990’s, when the temple-building movement was at its peak, on June 6, 1990, Hindus were driven out en-masse from Kashnir and that too, not by the back door but by a declared policy. So, I ask the hindu leaders – Why the temple movement with its Hindu wakening could not preserve the Hindus’ land in Kashmir? Today, the state of West Bengal is approaching the similar threat. It might become more disastrous that what had happened in Kashmir. A man, whose house has been set on fire, his first and foremost duty is to put out the fire. At that time, it is his most important duty. Hindu scriptures designate such a duty as “Aapat Dharma”. We have to protect our land first and then we shall turn on the problem of temple building. We should not build the temple as refugees. At first, we should stand on our own land with our heads high and then we shall build our temple. So, the Hindus of West Bengal today have to observe the “Aapat Dharma.”

KASHMIRIYAT : What Exactly Is That?

Tapan Kumar Ghosh

Kashmir is again a hot spot. On the roads of Srinagar CRPF jawans are shooting dead the Kashmiri youth and when the CRPF jawan is put at bay, he is getting mercilessly lynched by Kashmiri youths. On the screen of TV, we are daily observing scores of Kashmiri teen agers hurling stones at our security forces. Those stones have become a highly potent murderous weapon, much worse than guns and bombs. Army had to be called in. So, in Kashmir PEACE is now elusive. Mother India will keep on bleeding white from this vicious wound called Kashmir.

Even amidst this painful process, something else can't be overlooked. The central minister and Congress leader Mani Shankar Ayer is clearly blaming the security forces on TV screen. He is telling that CRPF should exercise more restraint while dealing with the teen agers. The secretary of his home ministry on the other hand states that CRPF is exercising utmost restraint. Is this a mere dichotomy of thinking or is it a double standard pandering to a sinister political design? It is not clear as to what is the real opinion of the central Govt. albeit it's de facto controller Madam Sonia Gandhi. Mufti, Jeelani, Gilani, Yasin and the likes are always castigating the security forces. The real perpetrators of this conspiracy from Pakistan are however fully relishing this.

Investigation has revealed that the militant organizations in Pakistan are funding this whole activity of stone throwing demonstrations. This fund is channeled by ISI and this infamous body is the de facto controller of Govt. of Pakistan. Their sinister plan is gradually moving towards a total success and that needs to be thwarted by any means.

After the Jihadist attack in Mumbai on 26/11/ 2008, Govt. of India showed some apparently angry stance regarding their dialogue with Pakistan. That period of utter hypocrisy is now over. Again period of dialogue has set in. Pakistan as usual is adhering to Ayub Khan's policy of 'Thousand Cuts'. Sometimes this manifestation is in the form of Grenade or AK 47 in the hands of Kassav, sometimes it is in the form of stone throwing Kashmiri Adolescents.

After every dialogue, all the Pakistani leaders are harping on only one point. That is Kashmir. Kashmir is the main problem. Once the Kashmir problem gets solved, India Pakistan friendship would be a cakewalk. However, history from immemorial has proved that subjugation to appeasement leads to further Islamic expansionism and in lieu of a mitigator it acts as a catalyst aggravator. This very same idea of Pakistani leaders gets echoed by the extremist, secessionist leaders of Kashmir. A perfect resonance between these secessionist and Pakistani leaders.

So, we need to contemplate on Kashmir. What is the main problem revolving around Kashmir? Before we get into this main problem, let us highlight some important facts about Kashmir.

The name of the state is Jammu & Kashmir, '' J & K" in short. It is a Muslim majority state. The inhabitants of this state can buy land in any other Indian state, can permanently settle there and carry out any commercial activity. But, on the contrary, no Indian citizen from any other state, not even the President and Prime Minister of India can buy an iota of land in Kashmir. Indian constitution has conferred this special provision for Kashmir. This is known as article 370.This only applicable to the state of J & K and not for any other state in India. Be patient, my dear reader. More is yet to come. All citizens of India are Indian citizens but for Kashmir the case is different. There principle of Dual citizenship applies. Indian citizenship as well as State Citizenship. This later is completely under the jurisdiction of the state. That is a state subject. So, J & K STATE CONFERS THIS CITIZENSHIP, not the central govt., not the home ministry, not the election commission of India. This dual citizenship is protected by section 370.This is the very article for abrogation of which Shyama Prasaad Mukherjee sacrificed his life---' Ek Nishan' , 'Ek Bidhan', 'Ek Pradhan', i.e. --- One Flag, One Constitution, One Head.

Owing to this article lakhs of Hindu lead a cursed life in J&K.

After partition of India in 1947, Manmohan Singh & Advani fled from Pakistan (or rather hounded out) and became Prime Minister and Home Minister of India. But Hindu and Sikh refugees who settled in J& K became Indian citizens but could not get state citizenship. They are entitled to vote in the parliamentary election of India but not lucky enough to exercise their franchise for the state assembly. This is the contribution of article 370. There are more to consume, my dear reader. No law passed in the parliament of India can be put in force in J&K unless and until the same gets passed in the state legislative assembly. So, this is a country within another country, a state within another state, a federal structure within a federal structure. The person, the chief architect of this wonderful arrangement is tragically a Kashmiri Brahmin, JAWAHARLAL NEHRU by name. An irony of fate! A real irony! His lust and affinity for a British lady has cost the country such a terrible price, a nightmare, a cancerous malignant growth, a gangrenous wound.

It is not only this article 370. It is not only this vexing issue of ' country within a country'. This state is just a parasite for rest of India. Rice, wheat, sugar salt, pulse----and all other essential items have to be provided to the state at a huge subsidy. Many other facilities and amenities are provided to the state at the cost of rest of India. Kashmir is just a sucking needle from the economic blood stream of India.

Even after so much of appeasement, Kashmir could not be won over. To keep Kashmir within India and make it an integral part thereof, more than half a million of Indian soldiers and security forces are deployed over there. We are presenting them rice, wheat and every sort of material and financial support. In return, they do present us back 3.5 lakhs HINDU REFUGEES and every week minimum 5 corpses of Indian soldiers.

Now, let me disclose what the real problem of Kashmir is! They say, I mean the Kashmiri Muslims say that Kashmir is a special place. It is the real heaven on the earth. Nature (in their doctrine-- Allahtala) has prepared it with special touch. The soil, water, climate, environment---everything is distinct here, very different from India. So, the culture of Kashmir as a whole is different from the culture of rest of India. They have named this culture as Kashmiriyat. This culture is priceless, very soft and tender and touchy and can be trampled by anything exogeneous. So, this special culture has to be preserved at any cost and for that purpose freedom for Kashmir is a must. Azad Kashmir is a must. The inference is very simple, Kashmiris are not Indians, they are a different nation. My dear reader--" Are you not hearing the Echo of Jinnah's demands in this?”

One section of them is of the opinion that Kashmir be snatched away from India and ceded to Pakistan. Therein lays total satisfaction of their soul. However, imperialist India is just not letting it happen. So, at least, autonomy is needed to preserve this 'Kashmiriyat'.

Let us now delve into what this Kashmiriyat actually stands for. If the special climate or atmosphere imparts some special characteristics to the populace over there, then those traits would be shared by one and all over there irrespective of their language or religion. Those characteristics are collectively known as the culture of that place and the older the inhabitants stay there over generations the more deep rooted the culture would get inculcated.

History tells us already as to who are living in Kashmir from the yore, who have an older lineage? The Hindus or the Muslims. Kashmir has been named after the great sage Kshyap. During the period of Kashyap Muni, Muslims were neither in Kashmir nor anywhere else on the earth. The very age-old pilgrimage in Kashmir is Amarnath where God Shiva narrated Goddess Parvati the theory of immortality. Even today lakhs of Hindus pay pilgrimage to Amarnath. Were the Muslims present at that time when these anecdotes were in place or when this pilgrimage started? Who composed and created those anecdotes? Were they not Hindus? The old history of Kashmir 'Rajtarangini' was written by the great historian Kalhan. Were the Muslims present then? Amarnath is situated in the district of Anantnag. Is this Anantnag not referred to in the Vedas and Purans? Has this Anantnag got any reference in Koran and Hadees? Is Anantnag outside the purview of Kashmiri culture? These so called proponents of Kashmiriyat have changed the name of Anantnag and have written everywhere instead 'Islamabad'. So, Islamabad is now a part of Kashmiriyat. In the history of Kashmir --- which is older 'Anantnag' or 'Islamabad'?

In Srinagar, on the banks of Dal Lake high atop the hill lies the old temple of Shankaracharya. In Punch Bura Amarnath temple, in Jammu the world famous Vaishnodevi, Raghunath temple, Kheerbhavani temple etc. date back more than thousand years. Vedic hymns are chanted in these temples over thousand years. These are part and parcel of Kashmiri culture; these are embedded in Kashmiri culture over thousands of years. Stepping these aside and ignoring these basic tenets of Kashmiri culture, the proponents of Kashmiriyat are emphasizing on beard, phase cap, veil, namaj, azan, nara-e-takdir etc. which have descended much later into the soils of Kashmir.

If Kashmiri culture is so dependent on climatic pleasure or topographic serene beauty, then why the sons of soil of Kashmir from time immemorial, the HINDUS, were tortured psychologically and physically and ultimately kicked out of Kashmir? Why more than three thousand temples in Kashmir were reduced to rubbles? If Kashmiriyat be an exclusive cultural identity, then why the proponents of Kashmiriyat are so hand in glove with the Pakistanis? Why the Kashmiri youth get terrorist training in militant camps in Pakistan and bomb innocent Indian citizens in Delhi and other places? Is it Kashmiriyat?

Yes, my dear friend, this is exactly what so called Kashmiriyat stands for. This name is a big hoax, an out and out bluff, a deception, a chicanery. I repeat this is but a master bluff. If you peel off the cover, you would come to know its true identity. This is but PURE ISLAMIYAT. True to the tradition of pure Islamiyat, the non-Muslims are hunted out there. That is the reason why the original sons of the soil, Kashmiri Pandits find no place in their ancestral home and hearth. Over more than 20 years, they are stacked in refugee camps in Delhi and Jammu. Kashmiriyat is a mask for Islamiyat. Time is now ripe to expose the true nature of Kashmiriyat to the entire world.

The way Islamiyat is breeding terror all over the world, perpetrating communal frenzy over all hues of Non-Muslims in all its ramifications as and when the situation suits to their evil, sinister spirit. The same way this proponent of Islamiyat in the guise of Kashmiriyat is bleeding Kashmir white. If they are appeased further, they would turn or at least attempt to turn the rest of India the same way. We just can't allow this to happen. We have to resist this sinister design emanating from Islamiyat by all means. We can't afford to allow India to go Kashmir way; we have to Indianize Kashmir.

In order to attain the above goal, we need to make bare the mask of Kashmiriyat which is but hard core Islamiyat. We need to deal with the Islamiyat with an iron fist. We need a non-hypocrite political approach, a transparent outlook and firm determination. It is the iron will that will carry us through and absence of which will make our enemies triumphant and long cherished dream of Islamiyat will come true.

Our clear cut guidelines will be as follows:-

* To annul all special rights and privileges for J&K.

* To abrogate article 370 without any further delay

*The retired army personnel from all over India should settle in Kashmir.

*To change the demography of Kashmir.

*Those who speak of cessation should be put behind the bar.

*All Pakistani agents should be put to death.

* To rehabilitate all Kashmiri Pundits. (3.5 lakhs of them are already in refugee camps).

* To reconstruct all destroyed temples at the hands of these Jihadists. (More than 3000 destroyed).

*To arm all Hindus in Kashmir valley at Govt. initiative.

Our Shyama Prasad Mukherjee made a supreme sacrifice at the altar of motherland to fight out the separatist and divisive forces in Kashmir. We shall never and never allow his sacred blood to go waste. Kashmir named under the great Kashyap Muni, Kashmir that beholds Amarnath, Kashmir that beholds Anantnag was, is and shall be an integral part of India.

Deepabali Greetings From Tapan Kumar Ghosh


On the auspicious occasion of Deepabali, celebrating the home coming of Sri Ramachandra and the slaying of the demon Narakasura by Sri Krishna, I convey my best wishes to all on behalf of Hindu Samhati.

On this hallowed occasion marking the TRIUMPH of Sacred over Evil, I have but one Prayer. I pray that all Hindus whose forefathers have been driven out of their homes by the Islamic aggressors from Afghanistan to Bangladesh, Kashmir to Assam or from any other part of Akhand Bharat, observe this day by taking a vow. Let us solemnly resolve that one day they will return to their ancestral home after defeating the Jihadi Ravanas of Kali Yuga - just like Sri Ramachandra eliminated Ravana of Treta Yuga and just like Sri Krishna eliminated the demon Narakasura of Dwapara Yuga.

From Kamakhya to Dhakeshwari, From Kalighat to Kanyakumari, From Hinglaj to Durgiana, One Billion Hindus will be celebrating Deepavali by worshipping Devi Matrika (the Mother-Goddess). Let us all pray to Bhavatarini, the redeemer of the world, to protect the homelands of the Hindus from devastation, to save the honor of our women and provide strength to our youth. Let Shakti Devi provide us the courage to fight back against persecution.

We beseech Maha Kali for her invincible power and blessings so that we too can perform the same sacred duty she did while slaying the demon Rakta-beeja. We are yet to get justice in the hallowed grounds of Ramjanmabhoomi in Ayodhya. We have no movements to wrest full control over the most venerable temples at Mathura and Kashi, or the thousands of other Hindu pilgrimage sites that either remain desecrated or are under the control of the Jihadis. Let us pray on this sacred day to obtain justice for reclaiming these holy places.

In more recent times, the same Jihadi hordes led by Member of Parliament, Haji Nurul Islam committed untold atrocities on the beleaguered Hindus of Deganga, located in Barasat Subdivision of North 24 Parganas. Starting Monday, 6th September, 2010, Hindus have suffered relentless persecution with regards to accessing the road leading to Chattal co-operative society temple in Deganga. Hindu temples, homes as well as shops owned by Hindus were ransacked. Directly lead by Haji Nurul Islam, several Hindu Deities were broken, the treasury box looted and the temple desecrated by urinating on the broken Deities. Taking advantage of the prevailing situation, the miscreants illegally put up a loudspeaker over Deganga mosque on the 6th of September. Households owned by Hindus were selected and set on fire in addition to sexually abusing individual women of the same homes. Fearing for their lives, thousands of Hindu residents from approximately 8 villages fled the area.

This Islamic persecution was opposed tooth-and-nail by Hindu Samhati’s brave activists. 15,000 Hindu Samhati activists led a “Deganga Chalo” rally in Barasat which led to the unjust incarceration of 6 senior Hindu Samhati workers, including our senior leaders, for 26 days in Dumdum Central Jail. There were also large protests in the heart of Kolkata by thousands of Hindu Samhati activists. The Deganga Durga Puja Samanvay Committee organized a massive protest rally against the local administration and corrupt TMC political leaders where more than 500 local Hindus from all neighboring villages, joined this “Dhikkar” rally either on foot, bicycles, motor Bikes or on auto rickshaws.

In an unprecedented protest, Durga Puja, the biggest festival of Deganga's Hindus, was boycotted by all the Puja committees of the Deganga area to register their strong protest against the inability of the local administration and police to protect local Hindus from barbaric and meticulously planned attacks by the Muslims. As a result, 42 Puja Mandaps across Deganga Block went empty.

The second exile of Sri Rama which began in 1528 CE continues till this day. Since then, there have been at least 76 battles waged by Hindu society to reinstate Sri Rama back on the throne of Ayodhya, the most recent battles being in 1990 and 1992. For the past five centuries, over 300,000 Hindus have sacrificed their lives to bring Sri Rama back from his second exile. But last month, the Hindus were coerced into yet another setback in Ayodhya whereas Babur’s barbarian followers were rewarded with one-third of the sacred land of Sri Rama Janmabhoomi.

Hindu Samaj is expected to gift away their sacred land to those who adore the genocidal invaders of India even though the Prayag High Court admits that there is overwhelming archeological evidence (submitted by the Archeological Survey of India and further explored by international experts by laser guided studies) that the Babri structure was built after demolishing an ancient Hindu temple at the same site. This historical truth was confirmed by the ASI by using Ground Penetrating Radar studies and documenting them very painstakingly in its report . This travesty is an epic example of blatant appeasement of Muslims, especially the Islamists that have anything but complete hatred against the Sanatana Dharma while overlooking both the conclusive archaeological evidence and the religious sentiments of over one billion Hindus living in India and around the world. Do the administration and judiciary indeed believe in the motto: “Satyameva Jayate”? If so, let them ponder over their actions and introspect deeply about the consequences.

Ayodhya is merely the tip of the iceberg. There are over 30,000 ancient Hindu temples which were destroyed by Islamic invaders who built victory mosques over the remains of these demolished temples. Initially, the magnanimous Hindus do not ask for all of these holy places to be returned. All the Hindus asked for were that the three most hallowed sites of the Hindus, inAyodhya, Mathura and Kashi be returned. That is all that was required to correct the historical injustices the peaceful Hindu silently suffered at the hands of barbaric Islamic marauders. But similar to the evil Kauravas in the Mahabharata who refused to hand over even a needle-point of land to the just Pandavas and faced dire consequences in the Dharma yuddha at Kurukshetra, we are seeing a similar reaction from the totalitarian Islamic hordes who refuse to acknowledge the mistakes of the past and refuse to hand over even these 3 sacred sites of the Hindus.

It is also quite revealing to see that since 1993, the cowardly political parties have developed cold feet and refused to launch or participate in agitational movements for the return of these 3 sacred sites, leave alone the remaining 30,000 Hindu sites. By faltering and shedding its fighting spirit, the so-called Hindu political parties tacitly turned the Sri Krishna Janmabhoomi temple at Mathura and Kashi Vishwanath Mandir into essentially “non-movements”.

In spite of this adversity, Hindu Samhati requests the Hindus everywhere to not lose hope, but to instead agitate relentlessly for their rights. Let us dwell on this profound axiom from the Mahabharata: “Yato Dharma, Tato Jayah” meaning “Where there is Dharma, there will be Victory”. But Hindu society must also remember that “Dharma Rakshati Rakshitah” meaning Dharma protects the people only when the people defend Dharma. Therefore, your concerted efforts for the protection of the Hindu value system in the eastern part of India will protect the Hindus in not only this part of India but all of India and over the world.

Every Hindu Must Take an Oath on This Sacred Occasion to Fight Against the Asuras (Jehadi Demons) of Today. 

And so we shall pray together to the Mother Goddess…

Om asatoma sat gamaya, tamaso ma jyotir gamaya, mrityorma amritam gamayo

Lead us from Falsehood to Truth
Lead us from Darkness to Light
Lead us from Death to Immortality

Vande Mataram

President, Hindu Samhati

Hindu Society Needs Total Hindu Solidarity and Kshatriya Spirit

Tapan Ghosh's Speech at New York on the Occasion of Hindu Sangathan Divas
August 8th, 2010

Ladies and gentlemen,

Let me first offer my heartfelt thanks and gratitude to the organizers of this Hindu convention for offering me the opportunity of visiting this great country and to interact with a people who had always expressed their highest regard for Hindu Dharma.

As it is known and acknowledged, the Hindu civilization of India has made an immense contribution towards the advancement of humanity and human civilization across the world. From ancient times Hindus have made the most significant contributions in the fields of astronomy, astrology, mathematics, chemistry, medicine, art, music and last but most important, in the field of spirituality and divine cognition. The nectar of Hindu spiritual doctrines and practices was practically rediscoverd by the west in the 20th century and many a harried westerner, worn down by the hectic pace of a technology and money driven life has found solace in the transcendental path of yogic practices and the ancient Vedic spirituality.
But it pains me to mention that this effulgent fount of goodness and wisdom is now itself in jeopardy as the position and situation of the Hindus in India itself is becoming tenuous. It is not the Hindus but Hindu Dharma is under siege in India as anything remotely Hindu is labeled as reactionary, regressive and potentially dangerous by the government and the communist dominated media. As history is our witness, plurality of the Indian society is not a sudden development of the 20th century. The Hindus had always been a tolerant people who graciously offered shelter and freedom of conscience to many a persecuted race and faiths throughout history.

It is in the name of this same tolerance that the Hindus are being persecuted in their own land. The ruling classes appease a defiant and aggressive minority just to cling to power and the all powerful mandarins of the Indian media play the role of the three wise monkeys in subservience to a self inflicted slavery to a discredited ideology. In the India of today it is as if the Hindu can do no right. The government turns a deaf ear to his pleas for justice and the media just sweeps under the carpet all the atrocities committed against the Hindu, even rape and murder.
Today the world is waking up to the danger of a phenomenon that the Hindus of India has been suffering through for the past 1200 years. The phenomenon now known as Pan Islamic terrorism. A worldwide community of believers whose cohesiveness of consensus expedited by the blinding speed and extensive reach of modern information technology has, like a thundercloud, burst upon a world avidly tending its own material prosperity and intent upon practicing the more tender aspects of Human existence.

Wherever the Hindu resists, he has to resist alone. Atrocities are being committed against Hindus everywhere in India. Everywhere the Hindu hearth home and honour is under assault. But be it Assam, West Bengal, Kashmir or Kerala, the Hindu fights alone. The plight of the Hindu in Kerala doesn’t move much the Hindu in Assam. The distress of the Kashmiri Hindu doesn’t disturb the complacent slumber of the Tamil Hindu. While even at the slightest of provocation the shrill hue and cry of the Ummah across the globe practically rents the sky. The government scurry for cover and the media literally froths at the mouth.

At this juncture a sense of cohesiveness, a feeling that the community is an extension of one’s own self and an understanding that an attack upon any part of the community is an attack upon the whole Hindu world, has become not a necessity, but an imperative for Hindu society. The Hindu society now needs Hindu Solidarity.. We cannot survive without a cohesive body of opinion, if not of assistance, behind us. Throughout history the Hindu has fought against impossible odds, and that is the reason why we are the world’s oldest and still the third largest religion But if we do not wake up now, that may well become history.
This current tension in Indian society between its own Hindu cultural roots and values and loyalty and blind obeisance towards extra territorial ideals and ideologies, a legacy of colonial rule, has created a centrifugal force of such proportions that it has made us lose the moorings in three major guiding streams of modern society – polity, media and academia. India is trying to forge ahead without knowing where it is going and what it will become in the process of such endeavour. Today we have a government that does not want to admit that it governs a predominantly Hindu country, a media that wants the country to shed every vestige of its Hindu culture and literally to be ashamed of it and an academia that is bent on instructing rather than educating. Teaching of our cultural ethos and glorious Darshanas have largely been eschewed by the academia.

The mainstream academia is slowly pushing our ancient Sanskrit language over the edge and the teaching of Ramayan and Mahabharat, the two epics which are taken to be the fountainhead of our culture and traditions, have been stopped in schools long back. It must be remembered that when in the 19th century, thousands of Hindu indentured labourers came to the West Indies – in sailing ships- to work in the sugarcane plantations, it was only the Ramayan, especially the Ramcharitmanas of Goswami Tulsidas, which preserved the precious link between them and their distant Punyabhoomi. It was the study of Ramcharitmanas that moored these uprooted people to their Hindu faith. Today the sons and daughters of these indentured labourers rule nations, in theWest Indies. And it is by trying to sever this mooring to one’s own culture and faith that present India finds herself adrift in a sea of chaos.
It is not only that we are besieged from without but from within too. As we all know the general hindu has no dearth of faith. In his or her mind there is always a great devotion for the dharma. Unfortunately it is the popular interpretation of the dharma which has abandoned the devotee. The current practice of dharma has completely ignored the solidarity aspect of the faith and has emphasized solely on the individual. Likewise it has abandoned the social and concentrated on the ritual.

The present Hindu is immersed in bhajan kirtan and performing a hundred and one rituals but he is blissfully oblivious to the happenings of the Hindu society or to the plight of other sections of the Hindu society other than himself. One goes to the temple in an individual capacity, performs ones private puja, thinks about ones personal success or salvation and leaves. One rarely goes there to experience the elation of being a part of a community.
The priests and the myriad gurus of the Hindu faith have also surrendered their traditional roles for providing both spiritual and temporal guidance to the community. Millions visit the Hindu temples and millions more visit the ashrams of various Gurus. Great devotional congregations or satsangs are held nearly every day. But the priests only busy themselves in reciting the mantras and carrying out the rituals in the minutest detail and the Gurus are only interested in discussing spirituality.

The current state of events, the current tribulations and aggressions confronting the Hindu society or even a specific problem regarding a specific time or place is never discussed. What this aristocracy of faith forgets is that the temple or the ashram is the only place where people gather as Hindus – sublimating their all other identities as father, mother, husband, wife, professional, taxpayer, landholder, landless - everything. And the foremost requirement of spirituality is that the spirit needs a body to reside in. Otherwise it becomes it extremely difficult for the etheric constituent of the spirit to be anchored to this corporeal world. If the body disintegrates, the spirit along with spirituality evaporates. It was Shri Ramchandra who gave the first lesson of patriotism to the Hindu nation as he uttered the shloka “janani janmabhumishcha swargadapi gariyasi” – one’s mother and one’s motherland are more glorious than heaven itself.

It was the five Pandava brothers and Shri Krishna who staked their lives and honour in the battlefield of Kurukshetra and oversaw the destruction of their entire clans for upholding Dharma. When the gurus discuss Bhagwad Geeta, they concentrate upon the mores of salvation. The never discuss the scene where Arjun, utterly dejected at the thought of destroying his own kin who are arrayed against him, faces Krishna and the Lord says “hatova prapsasi swargam jeetwava bhokshashey mahim, tasmaduttishtha kaunteya yuddhaya kritanishchaya” – if you die in battle you shall achieve heaven, if you win you shall enjoy the earth, therefore O son of Kunti, stand up and fight resolutely.
Our current day Gurus rattle incessantly to love and devote oneself to the faith. But never once do they mention that if you love your dharma you must do whatever is necessary to protect that object of veneration. And that is exactly what our Rishis and Mahapurushes taught us.
Mark my words, if Hindu Dharma sees its demise from the Punya bhoomi of Bharat, the day wont be far when its vestiges from the rest of the world would be sniffed out for eternity.

A society or a community that cannot defend itself against any form of aggression does not survive. It is a law of nature. As aggression is natural in any natural organism so is the instinct to preserve oneself from extinction. Every community needs a sword arm, to protect itself against aggression overt or covert. This is what makes the role of a kshatriya or warrior important in a community and in periods of turmoil and conflict, paramount. Hindu society is under attack from every direction and in every manner. The need of the hour is to reignite our kshatriya spirit and stand resolutely. An eminent scholar Dr. David Frawley points out correctly that Hindu society needs intellectual kshatriyas to do battle with the nefarious and malignant assault of the communist dominated media and academia against the Hindu faith. With that we also affirm the need of a vocational kshatriya, who would not simply seethe with indignation or write books or pamphlets but resolutely take the necessary steps to resist aggression on the ground. And in todays world it is the so called lower classes who are fulfilling the role of this vocational kshatriya. This huge but silent section of the society has been utterly neglected by the upper echelons of Hindu society for ages. Nevertheless it is their faith and fortitude and readiness to action that has borne the brunt of aggression and kept Hindu society intact.
Through the nightmare periods of Islamic invasions the whole of Hindu society suffered regardless of rank or status. But the so called upper classes had at least their social prestiege to solace themselves the lower classes had none. Yet they suffered silently when inevitable and fought valiantly whenever opportunity presented itself. Even under the most soul crushing oppression never did they give up their faith.
This trend continues even today throughout India. In the rural and semi urban regions of West Bengal and Assam, where I have a first hand experience of the situation, when things becomes unbearable the upper classes sell or abandon their properties and leave. It is the so called lower classes who bites the bullet and stand firm in resistance. It is their strength, courage and fortitude that has kept the Hindu existence from being wiped out from these regions in the face of Jihadi aggression fuelled by petro dollars, Islamic mafia money and the willing or purchased connivance of the communist intelligentsia.
Ladies and gentlemen, the imperative need of the hour, the vocational kshatriya, shall come from these so called urban and rural lower classes, as they always have. They are the new sword arm of Hindu Dharma, Shri Ram’s bow and Shri Krishna’s Chakra .. It is the strength of their arms and the stoutness of their hearts that we depend upon for the protection of Dharma. In the midst of all our material success and social advancement let us not deny anyone of us the honour, respect and assistance we deserve. Let us Unite. From now and for Millenias to come.
We owe it to our past and to our future.
Hindu Samhati has embarked on this path and we hope that you stand with us in every step of the way.
