Appeal : Register Sanskrit as a second language during Census - ProHindu | hindujagruti.org

  • tags: no_tag

    • Namaste, Pranam, Vanakkam, Aadab & Good Evening,

      Our Government of India is starting with census.

      Please register "Sanskrit" as 2nd language in the form which they would like you to fill it up. There are tons of people across the globe including India who want to kill & demolish our "Sanskrit" language.

      Reasons could be anything.

      But please don't allow them to do so.

      Officers who are going to visit your home are going to ask this question to you as well as to your family members. Empower them today only. You can also think of writing it on a piece of paper and hang out that paper near main entrance door so that you and your family don't forget.

      In last census, only 14,135 fellow citizens wrote "Sanskrit" as their mother language.

      You may be speaking Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam, Kokani, Marathi, Hindi, Gujarati, Maithali, Bengali, Assamese, Oriya, Punjabi, Dongari or Urdu language. And that's ok with me and all.

      But please do write "Sanskrit" as 2nd language.

      Remember, on day to day basis there are tons of words which we all use as it is written in "Sanskrit".
      Let me give some example

      "Stree (Female)", "Tirth/Tirtham" , "Prasad/Prasadam" , "Muhurt/Muhurtam" , "Naivaidya/Naivaidyam", "Suvas (Smell)", "Netra/Netram (Eyes), "Jal (Water)", "Bhojan (Lunch/dinner) ", "kunku/Kumkum/ Tilak"  & many more.

      Over & above, we also give "Sanskrit" names to our kids like Narayan, Satyanarayan, Soundarya, Murugan, Ganesh, Ganapati, Ganesha, Krishna, Sri Krishna, Shrikrishna, Pinackpani, Laxmi, Saraswati, Venkatesh, Sri Hari, Shankar, Kartik/Karthik, Satyabhama, Subhadra, Ganga, Gangadevi,  & so on.
    • Reviving Sanskrit as a second language would have deep implication on the well-being of the individual and the nation .. it could heal many social wounds and bind the nation into a powerful whole due to its synthesing nature.

      Some people also give "Sanskrit" names to their software products like "Shree-Lipi" . One of the oldest & largest sold Indian language font package from India. Modular InfoTech have been giving only "Sanskrit" names to their software products and they are selling in huge numbers. i was associated with them for more than 7 years.
      Some people also give "Sanskrit" names to their businesses.

      Our temple names are in "Sanskrit"
      Our family God/Goddesses names are also in "Sanskrit", Laxmi, Ganesh, Vyadeshwar, Hari Hareshwar, Saraswati, etc.

      Our Veda's are in "Sanskrit". Our various "Shloka's" and "Mantra's" are also in "Sanskrit". Our "Bhagwat Gita" is also in "Sanskrit" and which is used every day across all the courts.

      Now the question is? When we use & speak so many "Sanskrit" words in our day to day life? Why not declare "Sanskrit" as our 2nd language & give due respect to her?

      i am sure you will not disagree on this simple observation that i have done using common sense. i am also sure you must have heard a famous quote in English and it goes like this "Sanskrit" is mother of all Indian languages.
    • Please!

      Let's spread this message all across India and all across globe where ever Indians are located. Spread this like a wild fire.

      If we send this message to 100 contacts within our network and i am sure reaching out all across India will not be a difficult task. Am i right?

      Please cooperate. Please do this service to the nation and pass on the request to as many as you can...

      You will never regret it! :)

    • After the two Rupee coins with Christian cross, now comes coins which propagate and glorify only Christian Religion

    • To,
      Shri M. Prasad
      Joint Secretary (Admn.) & Director of Public Grievances.
      Ministry of Finance, Department of Economic Affairs,
      Room No. 166-D, North Block, New Delhi.
      Tel. 23094905 (Off.) Fax No. 23093422

      Dear Sir,

      Sub: Request to stop production and distribution of coins which propagates and glorifies only Christian Religion.

    • We came across a five Rupee coin with one side embossed with Saint Sister Alphonsa birth centenary 1910-2009 and her photograph. After seeing this there is lot of unrest and people are protesting against this coin. We regret to state that Ministry of Finance GOI always neglects our rich Indian and Hindu culture,Hindu Dharma and Hindu Saints and purposely glorifies minority saints and symbols while producing currency and coins. Ministry of Finance had produced two Rupee coins with Christian cross for which there were lot of protests throughout India. Similarly you have produced a coin with one side embossed with Sister Alphonsa who is unknown to majority Indians and who might have been active during British rule in India doing conversions,miracles etc. This has hurt our sentiments and we have received lot of complaints in this matter.

      In view of above you are requested to withdraw this disputed five rupee coin which glorifies only Christian Saint and purposely neglects Hindu Dharmagurus and Saints.

    • Thanking you ,

      Yours Faithfully,

ExpressBuzz- How to wipe out Islamic terror

  • tags: no_tag

    • By Subramanian Swamy 
    • How to wipe out Islamic terror 
    • While the PM thinks that Maoists’ threat is most serious, I think Islamic terrorism is even more serious. If we did not have today the present Union home minister, PM, and UPA chairperson, then Maoists can be eliminated in a month, much as I did with the LTTE in Tamil Nadu, as a senior minister in 1991, or MGR did with the Naxalites in the early 1980s.
      Why is Islamic terrorism our number one problem of national security? About this there will be no doubt after 2012. By that year, I expect a Taliban takeover in Pakistan and the Americans to flee Afghanistan. Then, Islam will confront Hinduism to ‘complete unfinished business’.
      Let us remember that every Hindu-Muslim riot in India since 1947, has been ignited by Muslim fanatics — if one goes by all the commissions of inquiry set up after every riot. By today’s definition these riots are all terrorist acts. Muslims, though a minority in India, still have fanatics who dare to lead violent attacks against Hindus. Other Muslims of India just lump it, sulk or rejoice.
    • Blame the Hindus
      In one sense, I do not blame the Muslim fanatics for targeting Hindus. I blame us Hindus who have taken their individuality permitted in Sanatana Dharma to the extreme. Millions of Hindus can assemble without state patronage for Kumbh Mela completely self-organised, but they all leave for home oblivious of the targeting of Hindus in Kashmir, Mau, Melvisharam and Malappuram and do not lift their little finger to help organise Hindus. For example, if half the Hindus vote together rising above their caste and language, a genuine Hindu party will have a two-thirds majority in Parliament and Assemblies.
      The secularists now tout instances of Hindu fanatics committing terrorist attacks against Muslims or other minorities. But these attacks are mostly state sponsored, often by the Congress itself, and not by Hindu ‘non-state actors’. Muslim-led attacks are however all by ‘non-state actors’ unless one includes the ISI and rogue elements in Pakistan’s army which are aiding them, as state sponsoring.
      Fanatic Muslim attacks have been carried out to target and demoralise the Hindus, to make Hindus yield that which they should not, with the aim of undermining and ultimately to dismantle the Hindu foundation of India. This is the unfinished war of 1,000 years which Osama bin Laden talks about. In fact, the earliest terror tactics in India were deployed in Bengal 1946 by Suhrawady and Jinnah to terrorise Hindus to give in on the demand for Pakistan. The Congress party claiming to represent the Hindus capitulated, and handed 25 per cent of India on a platter to Mohammed Ali Jinnah. Now they want the remaining 75 per cent.
    • Civil war situation
      In the 1960s, the Christian missionaries had inspired the Nagas. The Nagas also wanted to further amputate Bharat Mata by seeking secession of Nagaland from the nation. In the 1980s, the Hindus
      of Manipur were targeted by foreign-trained elements. Manipuris were told: give up Hinduism or be killed.
    • Recognising that targeting of Hindus is being widely perceived, and that Muslims of India are largely just passive spectators, the foreign patrons of Islamic terrorists are beginning to engage in terrorist acts that could pit Muslims against Hindus in nation-wide conflagration and possible civil war as in Serbia and Bosnia. Muslims cannot be divided into ‘moderates’ and ‘extremists’ because the former just capitulate when confronted. Recently, Pakistan civilian government capitulated on ‘kite flying’ and banned it because Taliban considers it as ‘Hindu’. Moderate governments of Malaysia and Kazhakstan are now demolishing Hindu temples.
    • Collective response
    • If one Hindu dies merely because he or she was a Hindu, then a bit of every Hindu also dies. This is an essential mental attitude, a necessary part of a virat Hindu (for fuller discussion of the concept of virat Hindu, see my Hindus Under Siege: The Way Out Haranand, 2006).
      Therefore we need today a collective mindset as Hindus to stand against the Islamic terrorist. In this response, Muslims of India can join us if they genuinely feel for the Hindu. That they do, I will not believe, unless they acknowledge with pride that though they may be Muslims, their ancestors are Hindus.
      It is not easy for them to acknowledge this ancestry because the Muslim mullah and Christian missionary would consider it as unacceptable since that realisation would dilute the religious fervour in their faith and also create an option for their possible re-conversion to Hinduism.
    • Brihad Hindu Samaj
      But still, if any Muslim does so acknowledge his or her Hindu legacy, then we Hindus can accept him or her as a part of the Brihad Hindu Samaj, which is Hindustan. India that is Bharat that is Hindustan is a nation of Hindus and others whose ancestors are Hindus. Even Parsis and Jews in India have Hindu ancestors. Others, who refuse to so acknowledge or those foreigners who become Indian citizens by registration can remain in India, but should not have voting rights (which means they cannot be elected representatives).
    • Hence, to begin with, any policy to combat terrorism must begin with requiring each and every Hindu becoming a committed or virat Hindu. To be a virat Hindu one must have a Hindu mindset, a mindset that recognises that there is vyaktigat charitra (personal character) and a rashtriya charitra (national character).
      It is not enough if one is pious, honest and educated. That is the personal character only. National character is a mindset actively and vigorously committed to the sanctity and integrity of the nation. For example, Manmohan Singh, our prime minister, has high personal character (vyaktigat charitra), but by being a rubber stamp of a semi-literate Sonia Gandhi, and waffling on all national issues, he has proved that he has no rashtriya charitra.
    • The second lesson for combating the terrorism we face today is: since demoralising the Hindu and undermining the Hindu foundation of India in order to destroy the Hindu civilisation, is the goal of all terrorists in India we must never capitulate and never concede any demand of the terrorists. The basic policy has to be: never yield to any demand of the terrorists. That necessary resolve has not been shown in our recent history. Instead ever since we conceded Pakistan in 1947 under duress, we have been mostly yielding time and again.
    • The worst capitulation to terrorists in our modern history was in the Indian Airlines IC-814 hijack in December 1999 staged in Kandahar. The government released three terrorists even without getting court permission (required since they were in judicial custody). Moreover, they were escorted by a senior minister on the PM’s special Boeing all the way to Kandahar as royal guests instead of being shoved across the Indo-Pakistan border.
      Worse still, all the three after being freed, went back to Pakistan and created three separate terrorist organisations to kill Hindus. Mohammed Azhar, whom the National Security Advisor Brijesh Mishra had then described as “a mere harmless cleric”, upon his release led the LeT to savage and repeated terrorist attacks on Hindus all over India from Bangalore to Srinagar. Since mid-2000, Azhar is responsible for the killing of over 2,000 Hindus and the attack on Parliament on December 13, 2001. Omar Sheikh who helped al-Qaeda is in jail in US custody for killing US journalist Daniel Pearl, while the third, Zargar is engaged today in random killings of Hindus in Doda and Jammu after founding Al-Mujahideen Jingaan.
      This Kandahar episode proves that we should never negotiate with terrorists, never yield. If you do, then sooner or later you will end up losing more lives than you will ever save by a deal with terrorists.
    • Moment of truth
      The third lesson to be learnt is that whatever and however small the terrorist incident, the nation must retaliate—not by measured and ‘sober’ responses but by massive retaliation.  Otherwise what is the alternative? Walk meekly to death expecting that our ‘sober’ responses will be rewarded by our neighbours and their patrons? We will be back to 1100 AD fooled into suicidal credulity. We should not be ghouls for punishment from terrorists and their patrons. We should retaliate.
      For example, when Ayodhya temple was sought to be attacked,  this was not a big terrorist incident but we should have massively retaliated by re-building the Ram temple at the site.
      This is Kaliyug, and hence there is no room for sattvic responses to evil people. Hindu religion has a concept of apat dharma and we should invoke it. This is the moment of truth for us. Either we organise to survive as a civilisation or vanish as the Persian, Babylonian, and Egyptian civilisations did centuries ago before the brutal Islamic onslaught. For that our motto should be Saam, Dhaam, Bheda, Danda.
    • Poverty is no factor
    • It is rubbish to say that terrorists who mastermind the attacks are poor. Osama bin laden for example is a billionaire. Islamic terrorists are patronised by those states that have grown rich from oil revenues. In Britain, the terrorists arrested so far for the bombings are all well-to-do persons. Nor are terrorists uneducated. Most of terrorist leaders are doctors, chartered accountants, MBAs and teachers.
    • Terrorist masterminds have political goals and a method in their madness. An effective strategy to deter terrorism is therefore to defeat those political goals and to rubbish them by counter-terrorist action. How is that strategy to be structured? In a brilliant research paper published by Robert Trager and Dessislava Zagorcheva this year (‘Deterring Terrorism’ International Security, vol 30, No 3, Winter 2005/06, pp 87-123) has provided the general principles to structure such a strategy.
    • Goal-strategy
      Applying these principles, I advocate the following strategy to negate the political goals of Islamic terrorism in India, provided  the Muslim community fail to condemn these goals and call them un-Islamic:

      Goal 1: Overawe India on Kashmir.
      Strategy: Remove Article 370, and re-settle ex-servicemen in the Valley. Create Panun Kashmir for Hindu Pandit community. Look or create opportunity to take over PoK. If Pakistan continues to back terrorists, assist the Baluchis and Sindhis to struggle for independence.
      Goal 2: Blast our temples and kill Hindu devotees.
      Strategy: Remove the masjid in Kashi Vishwanath temple complex, and 300 others in other sites as a tit-for-tat.
      Goal 3: Make India into Darul Islam.
      Strategy: Implement Uniform Civil Code, make Sanskrit learning compulsory and singing of Vande Mataram mandatory, and declare India as Hindu Rashtra in which only those non-Hindus can vote if they proudly acknowledge that their ancestors are Hindus. Re-name India as Hindustan as a nation of Hindus and those whose ancestors are Hindus.
      Goal 4: Change India’s demography by illegal immigration, conversion, and refusal to adopt family planning.
      Strategy: Enact a national law prohibiting conversion from Hindu religion to any other religion. Re-conversion will not be banned. Declare caste is not birth-based but code of discipline based. Welcome non-Hindus to re-convert to the caste of their choice provided they adhere to the code of discipline. Annex land from Bangladesh in proportion to the illegal migrants from that country staying in India. At present, northern one-third from Sylhet to Khulna can be annexed to re-settle the illegal migrants.
      Goal 5: Denigrate Hinduism through vulgar writings and preaching in mosques, madrassas, and churches to create loss of self-respect amongst Hindus and make them fit for capitulation.
      Strategy: Propagate the development of a Hindu mindset (see my new book Hindutva and National Renaissance, Haranand, 2010).
    • India can solve its terrorist problem within five years by such a deterrent strategy, but for that we have to learn the four lessons outlined above, and have a Hindu mindset to take bold, risky, and hard decisions to defend the nation. If the Jews can be transformed from lambs walking meekly to the gas chambers to fiery lions in just 10 years, it is not difficult for Hindus in much better circumstances (after all we are 83 per cent of India), to do so in five years.
      Guru Gobind Singh has shown us the way already, how just five fearless persons under spiritual guidance can transform a society.

    • मंगलवार को यूपी पुलिस की एक ऐसी करतूत सामने आई है जिससे सुनकर आप चौंक जाएंगे। यूपी पुलिस ने एक हिंदू शख्स की मौत के बाद उसे मुस्लिम समझकर दफना दिया। कमल अवस्थी नाम का यह शख्स कांग्रेस का कार्यकर्ता था। 

      जब कमल के घरवालों ने पुलिस में शिकायत की तो पुलिस इस मामले को बड़ी बेरहमी से टालती रही लेकिन मामला तूल पकड़ने के बाद पुलिस को कमल की कब्र खुदवानी पड़ी। इसके बाद भी पुलिस इसी बात पर अड़ी रही कि कमल एक मुसलमान था क्योकि हमने इसकी जांच की है।

RSS inspires BJP training plan- Hindustan Times

  • tags: no_tag

    • Vikas Pathak, Hindustan Times
    • The BJP is all set to go the RSS way, so far as training is concerned. The party will train its activists in residential camps like those for RSS volunteers.

      The RSS camps are called Pratham Varsh (first year), Dwitiya Varsh (second year) and the advanced Tritiya Varsh (third year), the last being a one-month course. Here, they are given physical (sharirik) and ideological (bauddhik) training. BJP activists will undergo similar — though less rigorous — training from June-end.

      There will be three camps beginning with a three-day entry-level camp to a five-day advanced one, and there will be holistic health (yoga) and ideological and skill development sessions on the lines of sharirik and bauddhik training.
      The aim: to train 1,000 activists a year.

      National executive member Alok Kumar is preparing the curriculum, which will be presented at the upcoming national executive in Patna.

      BJP chief Nitin Gadkari’s aide Vinay Sahasrabuddhe — who has conducted similar experiments in Maharashtra - is taking keen interest in the programme.

      “Under the skill improvement programme, we will train activists to make use of the RTI Act, use e-methods in BJP work and hone their public speaking skills,” Kumar said. “There will also be a session on the ideology and distinctiveness of the BJP, and on what kind of activist we want ...”

Differently-abled couples tie knots at mass marriage ceremony - Vadodara - City - The Times of India

  • tags: no_tag

    • On Sunday, six such couples suffering from different physical disabilities got married in a mass marriage ceremony for differently-abled people in the city. The ceremony was organised by the Society for the Physically Handicapped (SPH) to help differently-abled people find suitable partners.
    • Another couple at the event that stood out were Irfan Vora, 30, and Fatema Vora, 23, a divorcee who suffer from post-polio paralysis since childhood. Interestingly, this Mulsim couple got married according to Hindu rituals. The duo met at a marriage fair on Valentine's Day this year, and three months later, Irfan, who runs a water stall at Kamatibag, found his soulmate in Fatema.

      Dr Kalpit Baxi, chairman of SPH, who organises this event every two years, said, "We all need to find someone to spend the rest of his or her life. We encourage every member of this society to get married, no matter what disability they might have." Physically-disabled Kamlesh Patel, who participated in a television dance show Dance India Dance' was also present at the event to promote the cause.

The horses that led Operation Polo

  • tags: no_tag

    • Kashmir had at least signed separate standstill agreements with both India and Pakistan on the eve of Independence, though Pakistan never observed it. A standstill agreement between Hyderabad and India could be concluded only in November 1947 in which many concessions were made to the state’s ruler. Within 24 hours the Nizam went back on it. He wanted several wholly unacceptable “heads of agreement” to be incorporated in a “collateral letter”. Negotiations were painfully slow, acrimonious and unproductive. The patience of the Indian people, especially of Sardar Patel, was nearing its end. But before leaving India on June 21, 1948, Mounbatten wanted to make a last-ditch effort to settle the Hyderabad question. It failed resoundingly. Meanwhile, the Sardar had sent a back channel offer to Pakistan to swap Hyderabad for Kashmir. Sardar Shaukat Hayat Khan, a Pakistani politician who carried the message, later recorded that rulers in Karachi told him not to worry about the “rocks that would come to Pakistan anyhow”. Hyderabad, deep inside India, inhabited by 20 million people and of the size of France, they added, was the “real prize”.


      The clear connection between Kashmir and Hyderabad should thus be obvious, but sadly most Indians ignore it. Equally evident is the reason for the deep caution with which India formulated its Hyderabad policy. For, Pakistan had started the first Kashmir War barely 10 weeks after Independence. It was no coincidence therefore that the Union government decided on precipitate action in Hyderabad only after both sides had accepted the August 13, 1948 resolution of the United Nations Commission for India and Pakistan (UNCIP), paving the way for a cease-fire in J& K. What was a pure coincidence, however, was that Jinnah died on September 11, two days before the date fixed for military action against the Nizam, euphemistically called “police action”. The Nizam’s forces surrendered within 72 hours, while he acceded to India and withdrew the Hyderabad case from the UN. The codename of the military action, Operation Polo, was delightfully appropriate.
