The Madurai bench of the Madras High Court has directed the Sivaganga District police to provide protection to a Muslim woman and her Hindu husband, who reportedly received threats after their recent marriage.
When the case came up for hearing yesterday, the couple Murugan and Ariffa, told the court that both of them were above 18 years of age and had married as they were in love with each other.

Ariffa had reportedly converted to Hinduism after her marriage.
Britain’s first Indian-origin judge - a man known for his outspoken and uncompromising views - was Thursday named for the country’s topmost honour.
Judge Mota Singh, who once shredded the US-led war on terror in an address at the US embassy in London, was named for a knighthood in the British Queen’s New Year’s Honours List.
Singh hit the headlines in 1967 when he appeared in a British court as a turban-wearing barrister. In 1982, upon becoming Britain’s first Asian judge, he again insisted on wearing his turban rather than the traditional judge’s wig to court.
The last Indian-origin man to be knighted was the writer Salman Rushdie in 2007.
BORN into a Catholic family, Cheryl Balwani was always concerned from the time she was a child about where she would spend her eternity. As she grew up and met people from different faiths, she started questioning the authenticity of the Bible and wondered how God could send ‘nice people’ to hell just because they didn’t believe in Jesus Christ and acknowledge Him to be the only living God. She started exploring various religions besides occultism and astrology only to realize they were all wrong paths. She realized no matter how many good deeds one does, every person has a sinful nature inherent in him which cannot be cleansed by mere religion, rituals, prayer, meditation, yoga or doing more good deeds. When she realized only Jesus can save a person, if he chooses Him as his personal Lord and Saviour and obeys His word, she became a born-again Christian eight years ago. Cheryl has recently released a delightful collection of seven Gospel songs titled ‘The Right Path’. The album targets both non-believers and believers in their quest to find meaning in their lives. THE CHRISTIAN MESSENGER met Cheryl Balwani, the upcoming Gospel singer, at her Mumbai residence recently. Excerpts from the interview:
You come from a Roman Catholic family. How did your family and the Catholic church react when you became a born-again Christian?
When I became a born-again Christian, I was already married to my husband who is a Sindhi Hindu. Before my marriage my parents were concerned that I would lose touch with my religion as I was getting married to a non-Christian. I became a born-again Christian a few years after I got married.
Your husband is Hindu. What did he have to say about your CD? How is your son growing up with the Lord?
My husband and I went through a rough patch after I became a Christian. I’ve made many lifestyle changes since then. We have had a lot of fights and quarrels over religion. Earlier, I would go with him to the temple and bow down to idols and do puja at home. When I stopped doing that, initially it was a major issue with him.
He has known me for a long time and I guess it was natural for him to behave in that way. Now, he doesn’t mind in letting me be a Christian as long as I don’t talk to him about it. My husband heard a few songs from the CD and didn’t say anything. I am praying for my husband to know God just as I do, so that he too can be saved.
My son is just four. I encourage him to pray and talk to God all the time. I am building him up with the Lord. I take him to church on Sundays sometimes. I never force him to go to church if he is unwilling, maybe asleep or busy playing.
In a shrewd move to turn up the heat on those who matter, Muslim pro-quota activists have zeroed in on Amethi as the next destination
for airing their demands. The Muslim Reservation Movement (MRM), a conglomerate of minority outfits like Jamait-ul-Ulema, Jamait-ul-Qureshi, Milli Council, Muslim Majlis, Indian National League, etc, on Wednesday announced its decision to storm the Gandhi bastion -- either Amethi or Jagdishpur -- where it would host meetings and jalsa in January/February 2010.
Here’s bad news for couples in West Bengal planning a quick marriage at the registrar’s office without telling their parents.
The law and justice department will amend the West Bengal Special Marriage Act and West Bengal Hindu Marriage Act and make it mandatory that couples’ parents or legal guardians be informed before the marriages are solemnised. However, lovers need not panic even if their parents object because they are not bound to obey them.
Soon, couples will have to submit their recent photographs as well as documents verifying residential address, names and other details of parents or legal guardians. The marriage certificate will also carry scanned photographs of the couple.
Though law minister R Moitra said the initiative is meant to stop people from using forged documents, officials said it was aimed at stopping repeats of the Rizwanur Rahman-Priyanka Todi episode. “Rizwanur and Priyanka got married without the knowledge of the Todis. Had Priyanka’s father known about it, the matter could have taken a different turn,” the official said.
RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat favours opening of more Hindi-medium schools than English-medium ones.
"The demand for running more English-medium schools from Vidya Bharati should not be entertained.
"We can save our mother tongue by promoting Hindi-medium schools," Bhagwat said yesterday while interacting with managers and principals of schools run by Vidya Bharati and key office bearers of the Sangh here.
Muslims had made their intentions abundantly clear from as early as 1905 when Bengal was partitioned, that they were working to return Islamic rule over India; failing which they were ready to use violence to create an Islamic state from the body of the Hindu nation. As demonstrated in the writer’s book Eclipse of the Hindu Nation, Gandhi’s INC set political freedom as its goal only in 1942. Even after 1942, Gandhi’s INC wanted political freedom only from British rule; rather than mobilizing the Hindus against Muslim intention to vivisect the nation, Gandhi’s bizarre sense of nationhood and his criminal unilateralism in deciding the fate of the Hindu nation drove him to consent to the return of Muslim rule over India if that would avert partition.
-The greatest coercion is British coercion. And the Congress is impatient to get out of that coercion. My hope in desiring a Constituent Assembly is that whether the Muslims are represented by the Muslim League mentality or any other, the representatives when they are face to face with the reality will not think of cutting up India according to religions but will regard India as an indivisible whole and discover a national, i.e. Indian solution of even specially Muslim questions. But if the hope is frustrated, the Congress cannot forcibly resist the express will of the Muslims of India. Needless to say the Congress can never seek the assistance of British forces to resist the vivisection. It is the Muslims who will impose their will by force singly or with British assistance on an unresisting India. If I can carry the Congress with me, I would not put the Muslims to the trouble of using force. I would be ruled by them for it would still be Indian rule. In other words, the Congress will have only a non-violent approach to every question and difficulty arising. (March 17, 1940, CWMG Vol. 78, page 66)
Sheikh Abdullah began to utilize the critical years after 1942 to realize his own manic ambitions. Sheikh Abdullah was another Jinnah already in the making, but typically, neither Gandhi nor Nehru or even Patel read the danger signals emanating from J&K in 1946. “Even as the INC was in the midst of the make or break negotiations with the Cabinet Delegation, trouble erupted in Jammu and Kashmir. Sheikh Abdullah, a commoner from the Valley saw a great opportunity in the generally troubled times, to realize his own towering Muslimambitions in the turbulent years preceding 1947. Playing out the drama for civil liberties and‘freedom’ that the INC had staged in Rajkot, Jaipur and other Hindu kingdoms, SheikhAbdullah launched in May 1946, the ‘Quit Kashmir’ campaign. Abdullah was promptlyarrested and incarcerated. Nehru, playing the Great Democrat to the hilt, attempted to enterKashmir and was also speedily detained by Ramachandra Kak, the Prime Minister of Jammuand Kashmir. Gandhi jumped into the fray and in a passionate letter to Jawaharlal Nehru,pleaded with Nehru to return to Delhi with the promise that the Congress would make Nehru’s cause in Kashmir its own cause, and Nehru’s honour, its honour. The draft reply, drafted by Gandhi contained the ill-concealed threat to the Maharaja of Jammu and Kashmir that Nehru would return to retrieve his honour and fulfill his mission, a threat which however does not find mention in the official Congress Resolution.
Gandhi’s unilateralism gifted Nehru with J&K on a platter to do with it as he pleased.
परिवार नियोजन पर सख्त अमल करने की वजह से मलेशिया में रहनेवाले अल्पसंख्यक भारतीयों के पूरी तरह खत्म होने की आशंका है। मलेशिया हिंदू संगम के नेता बालातरूमलिंगम ने ये डर जाहिर किया है कि यदि यही रवैया चलता रहा तो डर है कहीं मलेशिया से भारतीय खत्म न हो जाएं। देश में ज्यादातर दंपत्तियों की अब एक ही औलाद है।
The Chandigarh administration had in 2005 honoured the same Sister Sebestina with a state award for meritorious service in the field of education.
Sebestina, who heads the school now, was the principal in September 1990 when Ruchika was expelled, a month after the teenager was molested by senior Haryana police officer S.P.S. Rathore Aug 12, 1990.
The imperial government in London allowed the INC to be led first by white British citizens, and thereafter only by non-Hindus like non-ideologues or notional Hindus like Dadabhai Naoroji, Surendranath Banerjea, G K Gokhale, M K Gandhi and finally Jawaharlal Nehru, who piloted the INC till 1947 when colonial rule was brought to an end on terms determined by the Muslim League and the British Empire. The festering, gangrene-infected sore that is J&K today is a Gandhi-Nehru legacy.
When World War II had drained London’s coffers and when Subhash Bose’s INA threatened to overrun India, and when the INA shamed Indian armed forces in the Royal Indian Navy and British Indian Army to revolt, the imperial government in London sent the Cabinet Mission to India in May 1946 to work out the modalities for transfer of power.
If Gandhi and Nehru had understood Mountbatten’s role in Indonesia and had they been outraged enough at Mountbatten’s desecration of the war memorial in Singapore for Bose and the fallen soldiers of the INA, they would not have welcomed him as wholesomely as they had; nor would Gandhi have asked him to play umpire (that was Gandhi’s prescription exactly) between the INC and the Muslim League; in effect, Gandhi asked Mountbatten to play umpire between him and Jinnah. It is pertinent at this juncture to recollect that Gandhi had also welcomed the Cabinet Mission proposals as “the best document in the circumstances” while refusing to even consider the Sapru Committee report which had drafted the broad contours and contents of the future constitution of independent India.
Gandhi was the sole interlocutor with the British government in the negotiations, while Sardar Patel and other Congress luminaries merely stood grimly on the side-lines; thus only Gandhi could have rejected the document had he wanted to. Instead he welcomed it within four days after the document was presented to the INC and the Muslim League, without reading the fine print.
The INC, after Gandhi’s endorsement, never summed up the will to reject the proposals and went along with the Cabinet Mission document (henceforth referred to as Mission document), carrying the Hindu nation inexorably towards vivisection.
The Mission document concealed the time bomb of vivisection and Pakistan in the cleverly worded offer for maximum autonomy for the Muslim majority provinces “approximating to but not quite” Jinnah’s demand for a separate Muslim state.
Nehru with the full backing of Gandhi was meddling in the affairs of J&K. With no thought to the grave danger and the imminent instability that he was causing to the shape of the emerging post-independence India, Nehru convened the State People’s Conference in the first week of June 1947. Nehru convened this conference of the people of the princely states, thus pitting the people against their rulers at a time when the support of the Hindu rulers would have been critical for the shape of the emerging independent India.
Unmindful of the consequences of antagonizing the rulers and encouraging a peoples’ uprising in the princely states against the rulers, particularly in J&K where the so-called peoples’ movement was only a Sunni Muslim movement led by Sheikh Abdullah and his All Jammu and Kashmir Muslim Conference (later National Conference) against the Hindu king, Nehru declared, on June 8, 1947, “Sovereignty must reside in the people and not in any individual. The State people’s claim to represent for themselves is justified and will see to it that they are heard. And certainly their rulers cannot speak for them,” before the delegates of the State People's Conference.
Gandhi and Gandhi’s INC remained mute spectators as Nehru kept J&K out of Patel’s jurisdiction and insisted on handling the affairs of J&K single-handedly. The result of this unchallenged claim to J&K as Nehru’s personal domain to do with it as he pleased created the bloated parasite called J&K which is living off the blood it continues to suck from the body of the Indian Union.
This writer has noted with alarm the penetration of foreign women in the lives of very important Hindu leaders in the twentieth century – Vivekananda, Aurobindo, Gandhi, Nehru, Bose, Farooq Abdullah and finally Rajeev Gandhi. Sheikh Abdullah married the lady who was earlier married to Lawrence of Arabia!Hindu nationalists must begin to look at this phenomenon fearlessly. If Kashmiri Hindus fail even now to render their history from the perspective of the Hindu Nation, then Maharaja Hari Singh and Ramchandra Kak will remain history’s villains, instead of Mountbatten, Nehru and Sheikh Abdullah.

33 year old Kali Temple Attacked and Burnt; Kali murthi stripped and vagina blackened;
At the late hours of 16th December, 2009 some unknown miscreants (suspected to be Islamic activists) entered the 33 year old Kali temple of Kankra village of Kachua Panchayet, under Basirhat Police Station in North 24 Parganas district, stripped the murthi, or icon of Mother Kali naked and burnt the temple. Before leaving the temple, the miscreants even tied the throat of the stone made murthi of the Goddess with a thick rope. The vagina of the idol was blackened. Keeping in view to the nature of the crime and mixed population of the area, one can easily understand that no Hindu can do such a heinous and sacrireligious deed. The finger of suspicion is definitely pointed to the Muslim community.
A few days before, the ornaments of the Kali murthi(icon) and other valuables of the temple were robbed similarly. People lodged complaints to the police station. That case too unresolved.
On the spiritual path those who are the most inclined to lead a peaceful existence that respects the value of all life often adopt the vegetarian lifestyle. For some people this is a very big step. This is in accordance with the yogic principle of ahimsa, which is to observe nonviolence and abstain from injuring any being in any way. However, many people ask what about the plants that are killed in the process of cooking vegetarian foods. Don’t they suffer? And don’t we get reactions for that?
If we merely cook for ourselves, we become implicated in karma or the reactions if we cause the harm of any living being, even plants. The vegetarian lifestyle surely causes less karma than the unnecessary slaughtering of innocent animals. However, the system of first offering food to the Lord and then taking prasadam becomes the perfect yoga diet and frees us from such karma.
प्राचीन भारत में भले ही आनेवाली पीढी को अपने पेशे में अधिक पारंगत बनाए जाने के ख्याल से अपनी बिरादरी में ही शादी विवाह किए जाने की प्रथा थी , पर सभी बिरादरी के लोगों का आपस में बहुत ही स्नेहिल संबंध रहा करता था। इस संबंध को और मजबूत बनाए जाने के लिए हर आयु वर्ग के लोग या दो परिवार के लोग आपस में एक विशेष रिश्ते से जुडते थे। पूरे भारत वर्ष की बात तो मैं नहीं कह सकती , पर झारखंड और बिहार में एक दूसरे बिरादरी के अपने दोस्तो और सहेलियों को पूरे नियम के साथ 'सखा' और 'फूल' बनाए जाने की प्रथा थी।
'सखा' और 'फूल' अपनी बिरादरी के बच्चों को नहीं बनाया जाता था। दूसरी बिरादरी के जिन दो किशोर या युवा बच्चों या बच्चियों के विचार मिलते थे , जिनमें प्रगाढ दोस्ती होती थी , उनके मध्य ये संबंध बनाया जाता था। एक आयोजन कर इस संबंध को सामाजिक मान्यता दी जाती थी और दोनो परिवारों के मध्य पारस्परिक संबंध वैसा ही होता था , जैसा अपने समधियाने में होता था।आजीवन मौसम के सभी त्यौहारों में उनके मध्य अनाज , फल फूल और पकवानों का लेनदेन हुआ करता था।
इस संबंध को बनाते समय उसके स्तर को भी नहीं देखा जाता था। इसके अलावे लोग ऐसी व्यवस्था करते थे कि अधिक से अधिक बिरादरी और धर्म के परिवारों से अपने संबंध मजबूत बनाया जा सके। पारस्परिक सौहार्द बढाने में इस व्यवस्था के महत्व को आज भी समझा जा सकता है।
A personification of shakti (strength) and bhakti (devotion), Draupadi was one of the bravest and strongest characters in the Mahabharat. Despite being both born and wed into powerful royal families, Draupadi went through countless hardships. She nevertheless emerged victorious and will always be remembered as a valiant woman who stood for the protection of Dharma.
A Source of Inspiration for the Pandavas
In her resolve to protect Dharma, Draupadi kept the Pandavas motivated and inspired to fight. She vowed to keep her hair unkempt (which was considered undignified at that time) until she had washed her hair with Dushasan’s blood. This was a constantly reminder to the Pandavas to defeat those who had wronged her. She kept her vow and tied up her hair only after Bheem had killed Dushasan.
During their years in exile, there were several times when the Pandavas lost their motivation to fight for Dharma, particularly Yuddhishtir. During these times, Draupadi recounted the horrendous acts committed by the Kauravas and reminded them of their duty. Throughout the thirteen years of exile, Draupadi did not let her husbands forget how she was dishonored and how they were deceitfully deprived of their kingdom.
Sought Revenge, but not for Herself
Draupadi is sometimes criticized for being too self-centered in terms of her desire for revenge. However, a closer look at her actions shows that this is not the case. She did not encourage the war because she was trying to carry out her own personal vendetta against the Kauravas; rather, she knew that the Kauravas had to be defeated for the protection of Dharma. Evil acts were flourishing under the Adharmic rule of the Kauravas. When even the queen could not find safety in her kingdom, how could any ordinary citizen hope for protection? Duryodhana was a menace to society, and it was for this reason that Draupadi, Krishna, and others sought war. As a counterexample to this, after the war, when Ashwatthama cowardly killed Draupadi’s five sons in their sleep, Draupadi did not allow the Pandavas to kill Ashwatthama. She argued that in this case, killing Ashwatthama would not be for any greater cause but simply for personal revenge.
Draupadi also demonstrated her selflessness after the dice game. Furious at all those who silently watched as she suffered, Draupadi was ready to curse everyone in the court. She exercised self-control at the request of Queen Gandhari; at this point Dhritirashtra, fearful of Draupadi’s power to curse him, finally spoke up. He offered her as many wishes as she wanted, but she asked only for her husbands’ freedom and for their weapons. She said that if she asked for anything more, she would consider it greedy. With their freedom, the Pandavas would be able to get back all they needed by their own karma.
Because of her virtuous nature, Draupadi is considered one of the panchakanya, a group of five women who are especially venerated in the Hindu tradition. The other four are: Kunti, the mother of the Pandavas and an accomplished scholar of the Atharva Veda; Tara, the wife of Vali who was instrumental in reconciling Rama with Sugreev; Ahalya, Sage Gautam’s wife who was given a blessing of purity from Shri Ram; and Mandodari, the virtuous wife of Ravan who had the courage to speak out against her husband when he abducted Sita. Simply remembering these virtuous women destroys great sins.

Was the tsunami that struck the Tamil Nadu coast and wreaked havoc five years ago a godsend for some NGOs? Going by the whispers within the NGO community and the police cases filed in recent times against some individuals charging them with embezzling funds, it looks like the moment of grief for thousands of people helped unscrupulous ‘social workers’ mint money.
In a first major step aimed at the return of the Kashmiri Hindu migrants to their homes in the Valley, Jammu and Kashmir’s migrant youth were Wednesday approved reservation in 3,000 government jobs. The move was approved by the cabinet ministers Wednesday. A cabinet meeting scheduled for Tuesday evening was postponed as Chief Minister Omar Abdullah had to meet Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in New Delhi Wednesday.
Sources in the cabinet told IANS that the government has given formal approval for absorbing 3,000 Kashmiri Pandit youths in government service in the Valley. The jobs have been reserved at the district and divisional level.
“Those availing reservation in jobs would have to permanently station themselves in the Valley and even a single day’s unauthorised absence from duty would cost them their jobs,” an official told IANS.
A Commandant in the 13th Battalion of Indian Reserve Police, Jammu, SR Samuel, IPS, has been charged with duping a Chennai woman into a marriage through misrepresentation. He has also been charged with ill-treatment, dowry harassment, cruelty and criminal intimidation.
In her complaint to the Chennai Police Commissioner, T Sharmila complained (under Section 417 of IPC) that Samuel and his parents had cheated her and her family by claiming that he was a devout Hindu. He entered into a sham marriage — “dishonestly and fraudulently went through the marriage ceremony fully knowing that it was not a lawful marriage”. “The first counter petitioner, knowing fully well that the marriage is not lawful, caused me to cohabit with him leading me to believe that he was lawfully married to me,” Sharmila added in her complaint on September 7, 2009.
It's almost as if P V Narasimha Rao never existed, as if the most difficult years in India's [ Images ] recent history were being managed by the invisible hands of Indira and Rajiv Gandhi [ Images ]. The credit for economic reforms all goes to Rajiv Gandhi while the blame for Ayodhya is reserved for Rao. This was Sonia Gandhi's [ Images ] version of India's recent history during the 125th Foundation Day ceremony of the Indian National Congress. She enumerated the achievements of every Congress prime minister since independence but erased Rao and his contributions from her narrative.
It is not difficult to decipher why Congress has over the years created this myth that Rao was a closet RSS-wallah. This allowed the Congress to absolve its rank and file of all the blame and make Rao a convenient scapegoat. It is neatly forgotten that it was Rajiv Gandhi's government that opened the locks and performed shilanyas at the disputed site.

A fearsome woman Maoist who was involved in violence for the last three years in Orissa, surrendered on Wednesday because her seniors were attempting to play Cupid.
The woman, Pidikaka Laxmi alias Sunita of Golanda village said she was being pressurised by senior Maoist leaders to marry a Chhatisgarh cadre though she wanted to tie the knot with a young tribal man.
राजसमंद जिले में समुदाय विशेष के युवकों द्वारा कथित रूप से एक बाड़े में आग लगाकर गोवंश को जिंदा जला देने की लौमहर्षक घटना के बाद उपजा तनाव मंगलवार को भी जारी रहा। धारा-144 लागू होने के बावजूद घटना से आक्रोशित लोगों का रोष रहा और कई जगह बाजार बंद करवाए जाने के बाद हालात बेहद तनावपूर्ण रहे। यहां ताजिए ठंडे नहीं होने से भी स्थिति बेहद नाजुक बनी हुई है।
उधर भीलवाड़ा में भी सांगानेर कस्बे में दो समुदायों के बीच लाठी भाटा जंग के बाद पुलिस चौकी पर रखे गए ताजिए भारी सुरक्षा के बीच उठाए। वहीं, देर रात पाली जिले के बाली कस्बे में समुदाय विशेष के युवकों द्वारा पूर्व विधायक के परिजनों के साथ ही गई मारपीट के विरोध में मंगलवार को हिंदू संगठनों के आह्वान पर बाली बंद रखा गया है।
राजस्थान के भीलवाड़ा शहर के कुछ हिस्सों में सांप्रदायिक तनाव के बाद मंगलवार को तीसरे पहर कर्फ़्यू लगाना पड़ा है. ये कर्फ़्यू एहतियात के तौर पर लगाया गया है. इससे पहले मोहर्रम पर ताजिए निकालने के दौरान हिंदू और मुसलमानों के बीच मारपीट और दुकानों में तोड़फोड़ के कुछ घटनाएं हुईं थीं.
Gandhi parroted ‘Ramanama’ as the palliative for all ills, including malaria, even while he rejected the historicity of Srirama.
When Gandhi rejected the historicity of Srirama and the Mahabharata, he in fact rejected the Hindu nation, its nationhood and the exhilarating tradition of rajadharma. The Ramayana and Mahabharata constitute the best in the history of the Hindu nation, because they emphasize that the ultimate duty of the King is to protect the Hindu nation by enforcing dharma as the ordering principle of life. Hindu dharma or Hinduism and the Hindu nation are therefore an indivisible whole. When they have been torn apart from each other, the Hindu nation has lost territory.
Nation is both territory and people, said Kautilya; it follows therefore that the king or the state must protect not only the nation’s frontiers to safeguard the territory from external aggressors, but also ensure that the people inhabiting the nation do not pose a threat to its territory or to its nationhood. The Hindu nation is paying the price of Gandhi’s description of this nation when he declared that this nation belonged equally to Hindus, Muslims, Christians, Parsees and Beni-Israelis; and Nehru’s megalomania which made J&K his private dunghill. When and if the religious tenets of Muslims and Christians, Sikhs, Parsees and Beni-Israelis pose a threat to the territory and nationhood of the Hindu nation, it behooves the king or the state to annihilate the threat.
Kautilya’s definition of nation as being both territory and the people of that territory is the most accurate and concise so far. The Abrahamic religions spread their tentacles across the globe conquering continent after continent not only by conquering territory by the sword, but also by converting non-Abrahamic peoples to their faiths, also by the sword. They posed a threat to the nation not only by threatening the territory, but also the nationhood by de-rooting the people from their civilisational, dharmic roots.
This is how Hindu Kashmir became Muslim-majority Kashmir; the change to the religious demography was effected not only when Kashmir’s rulers became Muslim through the agency of Muslim queens and concubines, but also by the Sufi cancer.
The challenge posed to the Hindu nation in Kashmir is the state’s Muslim population. If Hindu leaders would only pay heed to Kautilya, they will know that at the core of resolving the problem of J&K is to dilute its Muslim identity. If the leaders will summon the will to move in this direction, the road to our objective will reveal itself.
Why were the people of J&K more special than the people of the other princely states? And how is Raj Thackeray’s ‘Marathi Manoos’ exclusivism any different from the Hurriyat and other jihadi claims of Kashmir is for Kashmiris only?
Gandhi and Nehru both subscribed to the idea that this was not a Hindu nation; therefore they made common cause with Sheikh Abdullah even after he had issued the ‘Quit Kashmir’ call to the Hindu king. Gandhi and Nehru made common cause with the Muslims of the kingdom against their Hindu ruler. It is not surprising that the Congress cannot and will not set down the coffin of the political legacy of Muslim separatism in J&K bequeathed to them by Gandhi and Nehru; but the Hindu nation is not obliged to carry this coffin.
Savarkar’s exposition on who had the right to claim the Hindu nation as his own is brilliant for its clarity. In his Presidential address at the 19th session of the Akhil Bharatiya Hindu Mahasabha in Karnavati (Ahmedabad) in 1937, Savarkar stated in words of one syllable that only they, for whom this bhumi is both punyabhumi and pitrubhumi, can claim the Hindu nation to be their own. Pitrubhumi must be translated as land of our forefathers and ancestors.
If the Hindu nation is not carrion for Islam and the Church, then Hindus must steel themselves to reclaim the Hindu nation in Kashmir, not only for the Hindus of the valley, but also for the Hindus of the Hindu nation. We have to do what we have to do.
A careful examination of the Rangnath Mishra Report indicates that it will create problems for the Christian minority community in India. Currently the job share percentage of Christians in services like teachers, nursing, clerical and junior level CEO is more than their numerical percentage. This is due to their sincerity, honesty and better education. The reservation policy based on the Rangnath Mishra Commission would dilute the job opportunities of the Christian community who believe in equal opportunity based on the opportunity. Reservation based on religion would ghettoise the minorities.
At a public meeting held on Nov. 29, 2009, Actor Shah Rukh Khan is reported to have said that: “Terrorism has no religion”. This is grossly misleading and nonsensical twaddle by a crafty actor to lull Hindus into believing that Islam has nothing to do with terrorism. It has not a whit to do with reality. It is completely out of sync with the general view held by millions of Hindus, Sikhs and Buddhists who have suffered unprecedented brutalities and savagery at the hands of Radical Islamists for the last 1400 years.
Hindus have been terrorized into submission by Islamists to such an extent that they never stand up and come out openly to speak the truth. The truth is that more than 90% terrorism-related activities all over the world are carried on by Radical Islamists. Almost all the prisoners in jails in UK and USA on the charge of terrorism are Muslims. “Islamic terrorists have carried on 14,510 terrorists attack since 9/11” (a rate of about three to four a day). (www.The Religion of Peace.org) These attacks were not carried on by normal Muslims for money or personal jealousy but as a religious duty performed in the name of Allah.
The Bollywood Star further said that he has read the Quran. But he did not tell the ignorant audience that “sixty-one percent of the contents of the Koran are found to speak ill of unbelievers or call for their violent conquest; at best only 2.6 percent of the verses of the Koran are noted to show goodwill toward humanity”. (Dr. Moorthy Muthuswamy, an India-born anti-terrorism expert, in an interview with Jamie Glazov of Frontpage Magazine at http://frontpagemag.com/2009/12/14/the-yemeni-koran-by-jamie-glazov/. [More details about Dr. Muthuswamy's book, including its relevance to the ongoing jihad in India and where to buy the book are given here:
Ostensibly, Shah Rukh was following the Islamic law of al Taqiyah which enjoins on Muslims to lie and cheat in the furtherance of Islam. Shah Rukh fully exploited the non-comprehension of media and ignorance of the non-Muslim audience about the tenets of Islam.
Today, Hindus are faced with acute problems, and Hindus have no political power to influence corrupt secular politicians looting our country, stealing our temple wealth, destroying our culture and diverting Hindu tax money for Hajj subsidy, Mosque construction, Mullah Pension, missionary training, and lavish luxury lifestyle for the elected corrupt secular politicians.If Hindus had to survive, Hindus must restore that vital relation between our spirituality, culture and politics. Hindus need to develop the skill and audacity for confronting pseudo secularists, develop some worthwhile interests and work hard to promote it. "What is the best of all things that are praised?": "SKILL". (The Mahabharata)
Hindus should not elect secular politicians unwilling to challenge coercive religious conversion, jihadi terrorism, cultural pollution and corruption.Hindus and religious organizations must break their thick wall of denial and fight vigorously against bogus secular politicians seeking to serve their own self interests by serving our enemies. Mayavadis who preach Ekam Sad Viprah Bahudha Vadanti" should be confronted with reality. Their weakness begins to unravel when one asks "why don't you go to Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Iran, Bangladesh, Syria or Kashmir to preach your philosophy? Their diatribes are nothing but expressions of their subjective preferences.
Our society is full of moral cowards, and secular politicians paralyzed by the loss of moral standards and goals. Hindus must take the initiative to assume the responsibility of asserting rational Hindu values. No matter how hard the struggle, Hindus must act. If not now, when?
The following You Tube video is denigrating Goddess Sita and Holy Hindu Epic 'Ramayana'. This video is an April Fool wishing video by 'c2w.com'. It is duty of all Hindus to protest lawfully against such denigration to remove such denigratory video from You Tube and to get apology from 'c2w.com' which has created this video. The following link contains denigratory video. Hindus need to flag this video as 'abusing' by logging in with their Google Account or You Tube account :
Rather than first eliminate its puny, militarily insignificant CW stocks before becoming party to the CWC, India’s penchant to take the moral high ground, whatever the price, found expression in its ratifying the treaty ahead of its regional adversaries, and then rushing to meet the pact’s 10-year deadline for stockpile destruction. It incinerated most of its CWs by the 2007 deadline, even as the other possessor states had set protracted timeframes for stockpile destruction. While the US and Russia sought and got five-year deadline extensions in 2007, India asked for only two years’ more time, fully completing its dismantlement in March 2009. Meeting deadlines took precedence over guaranteeing environmentally safe and sound destruction, with secrecy the leitmotif even in dismantlement. The government’s fiat to the DRDO was to meet the deadlines, come what may.
But India hasn’t earned international respect from such faithful, speedy compliance. Indeed, like in the nuclear realm, India has been left to blow its own trumpet about its “impeccable” credentials. Far from gaining any reward, India has little clout in The Hague-based Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), where no Indian has yet held a top-management position. Worse still, Indian taxpayers have had to pick up the tab for international verification of stockpile destruction, with the obliteration bill surpassing the CW production expenses several fold. Pakistan and China, by contrast, have come out better.

धर्म से क्या नहीं प्राप्त हो सकता? महाभारत के स्वर्गारोहण पर्व में महर्षि वेद व्यास जी ने बडे जोरदार शब्दों में अपनी अन्तर्पुकार समाज के हित में कही है। वे कहते हैं कि " मैं दोनों हाथ ऊपर उठा कर पुकार-पुकार कर कह रहा हूं,परन्तु मेरी बात कोई नहीं सुन रहा कि धर्म से केवल मोक्ष ही नहीं अपितु अर्थ और काम की भी प्राप्ति होती है। फिर भी लोग उसे ग्रहण क्यों नहीं करते ?
न जातु कामान्न भयान्न लोभाद ।
धर्म त्यजेज्जिवितस्यापि हेतो:
नित्यो धर्म: सुख दुखे स्वनित्ये
जीवो नित्यो हेतुरस्य त्वनित्य: ।।
अर्थात कामना से,भय से,लोभ से अथवा जीवन के लिए भी धर्म का त्याग न करें। धर्म ही एक नित्य है,सुख दुख तो अनित्य है। इसके अतिरिक्त जो व्यक्ति धर्म का पालन करता है तो धर्म ही उसकी रक्षा करता है तथा नष्ट हुआ धर्म ही उसके पतन का कारण बनता है। अतैव जीवन में सदैव धर्म का पालन करना चाहिए।
मैं यह दृ्डतापूर्वक कह सकता हूँ कि विभिन्न वैज्ञानिक निर्माण, आविष्कार आदि जितनी भी लोकोपयोगी विद्याएं हैं---ये सभी भारत की ही देन हैं। समुद्रतल तथा आकाशमंडल की परिधि में उडना, विभिन्न लोकों में गमन, विशाल भवन,यान, वाहन आदि का बनाना इत्यादि सम्पूर्ण यान्त्रिक संस्कृ्ति, आविष्कारों, खोजों की आदि विकासस्थली हमारी यह भारतभूमी ही है। व्यास,वशिष्ठ,विश्वामित्र,पाराशर, याज्ञवल्क्य, जैमिनी, अत्रि, वत्स, नारद, भारद्वाज, शकटायन, स्फोटायन, प्रभूति इत्यादि मन्त्रदृ्ष्टा ऋषि ही यन्त्रों के भी आविष्कारक तथा निर्माता रहे हैं । महर्षि अत्रि और वत्स तो अपने समय के तत्वान्वेषी वैज्ञानिक मनीषी थे तथा सर्वप्रथम इन्ही दो मनीषियों नें चन्द्र सूर्य ग्रहण विज्ञान और आकर्षण विज्ञान का पता लगाया था।
बीजेपी को चुनाव जिताने का ठेका लेकर गड़करी भी नहीं आए। उनने साफ कहा- ‘पार्टी को आम चुनाव के लिए नहीं। अगली सदी के लिए तैयार करना चाहता हूं। सत्ता प्राथमिकता नहीं। प्राथमिकता है गरीब और विकास। बेरोजगारों को रोजगार। जहां सत्ता है, वहां गुड गवर्नेंस हो।’ गड़करी ने ऐसे बात की। जैसे वह राजनीतिक दल के अध्यक्ष नहीं। किसी एनजीओ के अध्यक्ष बने हों। उनने यह मानने में परहेज भी नहीं किया- ‘मैं एनजीओ की तरह काम करता हूं।’ पहला काम आज वाजपेयी के जन्मदिन पर रक्तदान का करेंगे। अपन को सोनिया गांधी का वह वक्त याद आया। जब वह अध्यक्ष बनी थी। तो एनजीओ की तरह पार्टी चला रही थी। रक्तदान शिविर भी खूब लगवाए थे सोनिया ने। आम आदमी की बात करके पार्टी को सत्ता के शिखर पर ले गई।
उनने कहा- ‘देश सबका, सब देश के।’ सकारात्मक राजनीति के सबूत भी दिए उनने। बोले- विरोध के लिए विरोध की राजनीति नहीं करेगी बीजेपी। सरकार आतंकवाद-नक्सलवाद और गरीबी से लड़ेगी।
As brilliantly shown in the article St. Thomas in India: An IAS officer revisits a 400-year-old history hoax by V. Sundaram for the last four days, many attempts have been made at regular intervals to impose the concocted history of Thomas on the people, thereby removing the facts from their minds, about the persecution of Hindus and destroying of Hindu temples by the Christian invaders (Portuguese, French, and British) from the fifteenth century onwards.
It would be appropriate to conclude with the sensible and courageous words of Dr. Subramanian Swamy, “The church will have to go, and the Kapaleeshwara Temple re-built on that site. Hindus will do it with the help of sane and civilised Christians if possible, without them if necessary, and despite them if forced. When 83 percent Hindus unite, let those who are seeking to debase Hindu icons by bogus history realise that a religious tsunami will wash them away.”
कारण नम्बर एक - शुक्ला जी के नजरिये से भी एकदम उचित है, वही क्रिकेट वाले शुक्ला जी जिन्होंने कुछ दिन पहले ही कहा था कि कुछ करोड़ रुपये की घूसखोरी के आरोपों के चलते एक विदेशी मेहमान को कितनी दिक्कत उठानी पड़ी और इस छोटी सी हकीर रकम के आरोपों की जांच के लिये सैकड़ों करोड़ बर्बाद करना कहां तक ठीक है. इसलिये कसाब के ऊपर करोड़ों खर्चना कहां तक उचित है जबकि एक गोली की कीमत मात्र चालीस या पचास रुपये, राइफल की कीमत साठ-सत्तर हजार रुपये और ग्रेनेड की कीमत दो-चार हजार रुपये, कुल मिलाकर आठ-दस लाख रुपये के खर्च के ऊपर इकतीस करोड़ रुपये का व्यय कहां तक उचित है?
कैसे पता चलता कि हम लोग धर्मनिरपेक्ष हैं, कैसे पता चलता कि हमारी गंगा-जमुनी संस्कृति की जड़ें मुम्बई से घुसकर दिल्ली में यमुना तक फैली हुई हैं. कैसे पता चलता कि इन छोटे-मोटे काण्डों से मुम्बई रुकती नहीं, चलती रहती है.
कैसे पता चलता कि एक नेता तो इतना बहादुर है कि गोलियों के बीच ताज में जाकर कुछ लोगों को बचा निकालने का माद्दा रखता है.
कारण नम्बर चार - आखिर इस सब का ही नतीजा है कि यह तो पता चल गया कि कुत्ते शहीदों के घर नहीं जाते.
कारण नम्बर पांच - इस सब से सुरक्षा एजेंसियों तथा गृह मन्त्रालय की मुस्तैदी भी पता चल गयी. खुफिया वालों ने गृह मन्त्रालय को सूचित कर दिया था कि हमले की आशंका है, गृह मन्त्रालय ने राज्य सरकार को और राज्य सरकार ने सुरक्षा एजेन्सियों को. सुरक्षा एजेन्सियों ने भी सुरक्षा चाक-चौबन्द कर दी, लेकिन इस का क्या किया जाये कि जहां की सुरक्षा व्यवस्था मजबूत की वहां इन्होंने एक भी गोली नहीं चलाई, एक भी ग्रेनेड नहीं फोड़ा.
कारण नम्बर आठ - अजमल कसाब को छोड़ने से साम्प्रदायिक सद्भाव में वृद्धि होगी. जो चला गया सो चला गया अब इसे सूली चढा़ने से उनके प्राण तो वापस नहीं आ जायेंगे. क्षमा बडेन को चाहिये का सिद्धान्त हम लोग भूलते जा रहे हैं. आखिर यह सब न होता तो कैसे हम चिल्लाते कि अंकल देखो पड़ोसी का बच्चा हमें मार रहा है. अंकल आप पड़ोसी को टाइट करो. कैसे दुनिया को पता चलता कि पड़ोसी का बच्चा हमें परेशान कर रहा है. कैसे हमारी सहनशीलता का पता दुनिया को चलता. कैसे हम इतनी सिम्पैथी का स्टाक कर पाते और कैसे हमारी सहनशीलता की परीक्षा हो पाती.
कारण नम्बर नौ - यह व्यक्ति मन्त्री बनने के काबिल है. युवा है, धर्मनिरपेक्ष है, जुनूनी है. यदि वास्तव में उसने ही गोली चलाईं तो यह पूछकर नहीं चलाई कि भई बता तू हिन्दू है, नहीं पूछा न. ग्रेनेड फेंका तो क्या जाति पूछकर फेंका. इसके अन्दर एक लायक नेता होने के सारे गुण मौजूद हैं, यह सब सुनता-जानता है लेकिन एक चतुर नेता की तरह चुपचाप रहता है और एक चतुर नेता की तरह ही अपने रिकार्डेड बयान से पल्टी मार जाता है.
स्वयंभू योग गुरू बाबा रामदेव और कांग्रेस की नजर में देश के भावी प्रधानमंत्री राहुल गांधी के बीच एक घंटे से भी अधिक समय तक विचार विमर्श की जमकर चर्चा हो रही है। दरअसल अपनी विदेश यात्रा के पूर्व बाबा रामदेव ने कांग्रेस के युवराज राहुल गांधी से भेंट करने की इच्छा जताई तो राहुल के राजनैतिक मैनेजरों ने तत्काल इसकी स्वीकृति दे दी।
राहुल और बाबा के बीच चर्चा का दौर आरंभ हुआ। पता नहीं कब साठ मिनिट से ज्यादा समय बीत गया, और दोनों को पता ही नहीं चला। राहुल गांधी के करीबी सूत्रों का कहना है कि राहुल बाबा यह जानना चाह रहे थे कि कहीं बाबा रामदेव के मन में उत्तराखण्ड से कांग्रेस के टिकिट पर चुनाव लडने के बलवती इच्छा तो हिलोरें नहीं मार रही है। बताते हैं कि राहुल ने इशारे ही इशारे में बाबा को यह पेशकश दे भी दी। चतुर सुजान बाबा रामदेव ने राहुल के इशारों को समझकर इस पेशकश को सिरे से खारिज करते हुए कहा कि वे फिलहाल राजनीति से दूर ही रहना चाह रहे हैं। उठते उठते बाबा के एक चेले ने बाबा के मन के मर्म को समझा ही दिया। शायद बाबा रामदेव पीछे के रास्ते अर्थात राज्य सभा के माध्यम से संसदीय सौंध तक पहुंचना चाह रहे हों।
