    • Jammu & Kashmir tests Hindu resolve – 3

    • 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.
