Mebourne (Australia): Australia's oldest Hindu temple in New South Wales was attacked by unidentified masked gunmen who fired several shots at it, triggering panic among the community members.

Sri Mandir at Auburn, which is more than three decades old, was attacked by two men, who were wearing balaclavas or ski masks, on the night of March 19.

The attackers were caught on CCTV firing shots at the temple. No one was killed or seriously injured in the incident, which created panic among the temple's priest and worshippers, local media reported.

A police spokeswoman was quoted as saying by the 'Sydney Morning Herald' newspaper that detectives were working closely with the community as part of investigation into the incident.

Rohit Revo, a Sydney resident and editor of a local newspaper 'The Indian', said the footage of the attack was handed over to police, but nothing has been done to solve the issue.

"Few bullets hit the wall at the temple entrance, just a feet away from the main door. One of the bullets grazed through the wall and ricocheted hitting the emergency door on the side of the temple," he was quoted as saying.

"A bullet was also fired on the roof of the temple which found its way through the false ceiling inside the temple. Looking at the bullet marks on the temple walls suggests that specialised big bullets were used in the operation," he said.

Normal bullets are of a very small width but these bullets have created bigger holes on the walls, Revo said.

"Neighbours are also sick of the escalating violence and have extended silent support to the temple by sending them e-mails etc but fear speaking in the public," he said, adding the recent incident was not the first one as the temple has been attacked several times since 2004.

Last November, some people armed with metal bars had smashed two windows of the temple, when six worshippers were inside.

The temple's priest Jatinkumar Bhatt claimed that he had also been harassed by youths in the past, but the latest shooting incident left him scared.

"I have a family as well, three kids and my wife," he said. "Throwing eggs and bottles is an ongoing process but this bullet really put us in a panic."

Time To Unmask Muhammad – an article by Geert Wilders | Faithfreedom.org

Ali Sina is an Iranian ex-Muslim who established the organisation for apostates of Islam Faith Freedom International. In his latest book he posits that Muhammad is a narcissist, a paedophile, a mass murderer, a terrorist, a misogynist, a lecher, a cult leader, a madman, a rapist, a torturer, an assassin and a looter.

Sina has offered 50,000 dollars for the one who can prove otherwise. Nobody has claimed the reward as yet. And no wonder, as the description is based on the Islamic texts themselves, such as the hadiths, the descriptions of Muhammad’s life from testimonies of contemporaries.

VivekaJyoti: The use of Grass-Root-Efforts to create awareness amongst Hindus of the challenges they face from the western marauding faiths.

Today major political movements ignore grassroots and focus exclusively on deploying mass media outlets for “viral propaganda” in getting the message across to the activists as rapidly as one can. It works, it has worked for Stalin, it worked wonderfully for Hitler and it worked for Mao, and continues to work for Islam and Christianity’s proliferation. Islamic radicals use viral media for their hateful propaganda…why are more people converting to this seemingly hateful faith? Why are people not converting in droves to Hinduism, Buddhism or Jainism that deeply spiritual faiths devoid of violence, with tolerance, flexibility and ancient wisdom? The answer lies in “brand mythology” they, the Muslims and Christians promote, proselytize, promote, propagandize and promote relentlessly, 24/7, and people buy what is sold. On the other hand they also look for weaknesses and reduce the competing faiths with negative propaganda. We MUST start selling our Spiritual brand, which is Hinduism, for all its wonderful qualities!! Well folks, these are the same methods Hindus must use to call out the flaws, atrocities, and their inhuman decrees against women-sanctioned misogyny and non-believers in the same loud fashion, otherwise we are wasting ourselves. We must use contemporary media to sell Hinduism, that is the only way this information battle must be won!

The Christians and the Islamists use (1) Network Emails, (3) Social Media, (3) Street corner and door to door distribution of information, (4) Arial drops, (5) Broadcast media, (6) their own network -Al-Jazeera & others, (7) Newspaper & magazine Ads and lastly (8) through their preachings at their Mosques all over. They are organized like ants and Meerkats, whereas we are disorganized. We need to organize ourselves quickly, as people are being killed as we discuss the merits and demerits of grassroots and propaganda. It is this kind of propaganda through contemporary media outlets, rabid activism and intimidation, yes intimidation that has turned a 100% Christian Lebanon in 1950 to 80% Muslim Lebanon in 2008, this is what has happened in Indonesia (even though their culture is still Hindu), Malaysia, Thailand and now going on in India.

Grassroots is the base of the political pyramid, as the opposite is the establishment that controls the top. Grassroots by its design is inclusive, everyone can be involved, and there in lies the delay, in the organizing aspect of it.

Yes, Grassroots is indeed a tool that is very effective and affective long term to reform political culture. I think grassroots must be used to change our educational culture and rewrite history as facts and not as opinions. Indian history is replete with erroneous information. It has positioned Muslims rulers as indigenous rulers promoting them as benevolent emperors. In fact this obfuscation of facts is a direct slap on the faces of thousands of Hindu families and their descendants that have died due to these “benevolent” emperors’ wanton genocides, slavery and destruction of temples. Hindus have been made to swallow this “history” for two plus generations in their classrooms, facts shoved under the proverbial Indian rug in favor of political correctness. Grassroots must be engaged in pursuit of amending the constitution to have one set of laws for the citizens, not two sets of laws, one for Hindus and the Sharia for the Muslims, this is an unmitigated advantage for the Muslims, who are breeding like mice already.

Tamil Nadu Politics: Cancerous Church Eats into Dravidian Parties - II
Radha Rajan

At the time of independence in 1948, a peculiar situation prevailed in Sri Lanka where the politically assertive section both among the Sinhala and Tamil people were Christians, a situation which continues till the present day. This was the result of the almost total control of education and state patronage extended to Christian missionary schools and colleges by all colonial powers – Portuguese, Dutch and then the British.

Church-run schools, which received colonial state patronage and government funds, provided education in English as compared to the education in the vernacular languages in Sinhala and Tamil provided by temples and Buddhist monasteries. English education was mandatory for admission to institutions of higher learning which in turn led to employment in government institutions.


The Church in Sri Lanka, in an extension of its rice-bowl conversion in Africa, made admission to their schools and colleges conditional upon religious conversion to Christianity in what may be termed blackboard conversion. The Church in South India targeted the Tamil Nadar community similarly; thus within the same family those who opted to send their children to missionary schools converted to Christianity and were given alien foreign sounding Christian names.

Not surprisingly, in the early years of the twentieth century only those Sri Lankans - Sinhala and Tamil - who were English-educated were employed by the British administration in government jobs and the same section emerged as frontrunners in the country’s polity too. Bandaranaike, Jayawardene, Lakshman Kadirgamar, Chelvanayakam and even Ranasinghe Premadasa, son of Richard Ranasinghe, were all Christians. The Church had never had it so good; except that the notion of Tamil People which the Church had sown in society rebounded on the Church in an unexpected turn of events.

While the Church fabricated the Tamil People/Tamil Nation fiction in India vis-à-vis the Brahmins, its work to plant the cancerous cell in Sri Lanka was made easier because the Tamil language and its culture/people had to be presented as being separate only vis-à-vis the Sinhala language and its culture/people. The fact that both the Sinhala speaking people and the Tamil speaking people were civilisationally, culturally and religiously bound to Hinduism and bound by the umbilical cord to the Hindu bhumi in equal measure was pushed to the margins of their collective consciousness; and identity of language was privileged over civilisational identity.

The Buddhist clergy in Sri Lanka, like the non-Brahmins of Tamil Nadu, was a willing customer for Church peddled separatism.

The success of the Church propaganda that the Tamil speaking people of Sri Lanka and Tamil Nadu were a separate nationality can be gauged from the fact that while the Buddhist clergy, reacting strongly to Tamil separatism which had reared its head even before independence in 1948, wanted to push the Tamil speaking people of Sri Lanka to the margins of national life, it remained sanguine to the fact that every President that the country elected was Christian; Sinhala Christian. The Buddhist clergy was prepared to accommodate an Abrahamic religion into its conception of Sinhala nationalism, while refusing to reach out to the civilisationally related Tamil Hindus who constituted 15% of the population.

Pitting brother against brother is classic Abrahamic/Christian war tactics going back to the Old Testament.

Christians who constitute 7.5% of the population were tactically distributed among the 74% Sinhala, 12.6 % Tamil and 5.19% Indian Tamil populace, thus giving the Church a powerful leverage among all sections of the language divide.


Every penny and paisa that the Church spends, it spends as investment towards realizing its core objective – control of communities leading to control of polity leading ultimately to control of government culminating in bloody or bloodless conquest of territory. The path to this objective is religious conversion; what was achieved solely through enculturation in the 16th and 17th centuries, through the Church’s missionary educational and medical institutions in the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries is now being achieved through NGOs, through an aggressive political discourse in religious freedom and human rights which always work only to the Church’s advantage to facilitate penetration, conversion and conquest.

Investing in political parties is the Church’s latest venture in Tamil Nadu. The Church’s investment, besides the time-tested and highly successful strategy of planting Christians in important ruling families through the love angle or as close confidants to politicians, is three-pronged –


The Church is not going to invest money into their parties and the state only to have Karunanidhi and family, Jayalalithaa and baggage to enjoy the fruits of power. The Church wants the whole of Tamil Nadu and a large part of Sri Lanka. If the DMK, AIADMK and the BJP do not see this even now, it may well spell their doom. The Congress in Tamil Nadu is recruiting Christians into the party at all levels – educated, poorly educated, as leaders and as cadre.

Centre mulls ban on live telecast of Baba Ramdev's programmes in Aastha TV

Centre mulls ban on live telecast of Baba Ramdev's programmes in Aastha TV

HYDERABAD: Justice L Narasimha Reddy of the High Court on Tuesday sought the response of the central government to a petition that charged it with blocking live telecast of programmes being conducted by yoga guru Baba Ramdev. The petitioner contended that apart from teaching yoga, the baba was enlightening people about the ill-effects of black money and money stashed away in foreign banks.

The judge was responding to a petition filed by B Rammohan Reddy, an advocate, who said he was aggrieved by the sudden cancellation of Ramdev Baba's early morning programmes being regularly telecast by Aastha TV channel. Because the Centre was not happy with the speeches of the baba on black money, it ordered the channel to stop live telecast of his yoga camps with effect from March 21, K Ashok Reddy, the counsel for the petitioner, told the court.

"By following Baba Ramdev's instructions, I was able to do yoga exercises. Now, that facility is gone. My diabetic problem and other ailments were controlled to a large extent because of my regular exercises and now I fear they may return owing to my inability to do this exercise in the absence of any guidance from the baba," the petitioner said.

When the judge sought to know the response of the Centre, Ponnam Ashok Goud, assistant solicitor general, assured the court that he would get back soon.

the wikileaks cable makes it clear what everybody knew: indians were being attacked for being indians; i have always suspected that it was possibly lebanese toughs -- who have made some parts of oz no-go areas for police -- who were behind it, seeing as they had religious prejudices anyway, and also viewed the indians as less likely to hit back. they wouldn't attack chinese, i suspect, because of 'soft power' -- all those kung-fu films have convinced thugs that chinese will do karate or something. and there are chinese triad gangs and vietnamese gangs in australia, so the criminals have a healthy respect for east asian looking people in terms of whether they will hit back.

but hindus, ah, they know hindus are weak and soft.

ergo, the answer for all this is for indians to go out and buy some guns. yes, seriously. deterrence. kill a couple of racists, the rest will think twice.

i guess this is also part of the gandhi legacy ('soul force') and the jawaharlal legacy ('chinese beat up on india in 1962) and the sonia legacy ('pak terrorists kill indians at will -- see mumbai 11/26').

so, of course, they decide to shoot up the oldest hindu temple in australia, just days after an 'inter-faith' meeting. i suppose the 'inter-faith' meeting made it clear there were no weapons inside the temple (which may or may not be true for some other 'faiths' that i could name).

Fascism is a difficult word, because it comes with an iconography that touches the Nazi nerve and is abused as propaganda against America’s official enemies and to promote the West’s foreign adventures with a moral vocabulary written in the struggle against Hitler. And yet fascism and imperialism are twins. In the aftermath of world war two, those in the imperial states who had made respectable the racial and cultural superiority of “western civilisation”, found that Hitler and fascism had claimed the same, employing strikingly similar methods. Thereafter, the very notion of American imperialism was swept from the textbooks and popular culture of an imperial nation forged on the genocidal conquest of its native people. And a war on social justice and democracy became “US foreign policy”.

As the Washington historian William Blum has documented, since 1945, the US has destroyed or subverted more than 50 governments, many of them democracies, and used mass murderers like Suharto, Mobutu and Pinochet to dominate by proxy. In the Middle East, every dictatorship and pseudo-monarchy has been sustained by America. In “Operation Cyclone”, the CIA and MI6 secretly fostered and bank-rolled Islamic extremism. The object was to smash or deter nationalism and democracy. The victims of this western state terrorism have been mostly Muslims. The courageous people gunned down last week in Bahrain and Libya, the latter a “priority UK market”, according to Britain’s official arms “procurers”, join those children blown to bits in Gaza by the latest American F-16 aircraft.

The revolt in the Arab world is not merely against a resident dictator but a worldwide economic tyranny designed by the US Treasury and imposed by the US Agency for International Development, the IMF and World Bank, which have ensured that rich countries like Egypt are reduced to vast sweatshops, with half the population earning less than $2 a day. The people’s triumph in Cairo was the first blow against what Benito Mussolini called corporatism, a word that appears in his definition of fascism.

How did such extremism take hold in the liberal West? “It is necessary to destroy hope, idealism, solidarity, and concern for the poor and oppressed,” observed Noam Chomsky a generation ago, “[and] to replace these dangerous feelings with self-centred egoism, a pervasive cynicism that holds that [an order of] inequities and oppression is the best that can be achieved. In fact, a great international propaganda campaign is under way to convince people – particularly young people – that this not only is what they should feel but that it’s what they do feel.”

Like the European revolutions of 1848 and the uprising against Stalinism in 1989, the Arab revolt has rejected fear. An insurrection of suppressed ideas, hope and solidarity has begun. In the United States, where 45 per cent of young African-Americans have no jobs and the top hedge fund managers are paid, on average, a billion dollars a year, mass protests against cuts in services and jobs have spread to heartland states like Wisconsin. In Britain, the fastest-growing modern protest movement, UK Uncut, is about to take direct action against tax avoiders and rapacious banks. Something has changed that cannot be unchanged. The enemy has a name now.

A Cure for the Corruption in India, By Stephen Knapp

A Cure for the Corruption in India, By Stephen Knapp: "

Throughout my travels in India, while lecturing at so many cities and venues, it is not unusual for businessmen, industrialists, or even professors to ask me what I think should be done about all the corruption in India, which exists on every level.

The British also helped jump start this corruption by two things:

First the bureaucracy they established in their managerial system which they used against the Indians, most of which was adopted by the Indians in the form of a Parliamentary government and which allows for the loopholes and cracks in the system for the continuation of so much corruption.

Secondly, while under the British, the citizens of India were forced to struggle so hard to exist that it forced them to think in terms of the survival of their own immediate family while giving up the consideration of the whole community. After so many years of that conditioning, this need for self-preservation and the desire to fulfill selfish concerns went from one generation to the next until it became a general trend to get whatever you need regardless of the consequences or how it affects others.


The Indian constitution itself, under the guise of freedom and fairness for the minority religions, fuels corruption and inequality by favoring the few at the expense of the majority Vedic or Hindu population. How can this inspire a united vision?


This goes back to the point that there is no real lack of anything in this world in regard to resources needed to survive. The only real lack is God-consciousness and the higher vision to see that spiritually we are all the same and that we are only barrowing things from the Supreme during the short duration of the life we are given. Thus, the world’s resources need to be distributed in a way so everyone benefits, and that it is not monopolized by greedy people in prominent positions.



Such a disease can only be cured or purged in society by having the proper training, especially while young and still growing up, in order to add the appropriate character building traits necessary to know what is a decent and balanced human being and how to be one.


THE CURE FOR THE PERVASIVE CORRUPTION


As I said earlier, I am often asked when I am in India what to do about all of this corruption. I always answered that the best thing that I know of is to continue to teach the ethical and moralistic standards as found in Vedic Dharma. Fortunately for me, this was reaffirmed while I was in Bangalore with my visit with the eminent M. Rama Jois, the retired Chief Justice of the Punjab and Haryana High Court. He told me that this was indeed the best way to relieve the country of all the corruption that we see, but he explained the best means to do that.


M. Rama Jois told me that before the independence of India in 1947, there used to be government pre-schools where the children would go to learn, not necessarily how to read and write, but about the basic rules of Dharma. Then the children would also hear of the examples of Dharma from the great epics, like the Mahabharata and Ramayana or Puranas, and about those great heroes who acted in various situations under the rules of Dharma. This way, before the children ever went to general school to learn reading and writing, etc., they were already educated in the proper content of character to know how to act as a proper human being, and know how to judge what is right or wrong in the various situations of life.


Unfortunately, it was after 1947 when the new administration of independent India decided that learning the ethics of Dharma was religious study, and that the new secular government could no longer support such pre-schools. Thus, all such education of basic moralistic principles under Dharma were no longer to be taught in the schools of India. And since that time, the materialistic selfishness, greed, and the insensitivity to the situation of others for the benefit of oneself, have all increased to the point where now it is almost all-pervasive.


As M. Rama Jois explains in his book Dharma: The Global Ethic, “All our present day problems are a direct result of disregarding Dharma, under the influence of a materialistic philosophy, in the belief that it alone can usher in happiness and secure the welfare of the people. Now it is becoming clear that human problems increase as we go on multiplying our lust and desire for material wealth and pleasure, and that the solution to all the problems, whether they be social, economic or political, and in particular the crash of our moral edifice which the world and our nation are facing, is Dharma alone. There is no alternative to Dharma. This is the eternal truth. This can be realized if we understand the real meaning of Dharma.”


So, what is Dharma? I have already written more extensively about this, but to put it simply, the Mahabharata (Shanti Parva, 109.9-11) says: “Dharma has been explained to be that which helps the upliftment of living beings. Therefore, that which ensures the welfare of living beings is surely Dharma. The learned rishis have declared that which sustains is Dharma.”


A little more clarity can also be provided by Madhavacharya, a Minister to Hakka and Bukka, founders of the Vijayanagar Empire, in his commentary on the Parashara Smriti: “Dharma is that which sustains and ensures progress and welfare of all in this world and eternal bliss in the next world. Dharma is promulgated in the form of commands (rules both positive and negative, Vidhi and Nishedha).”


The Mahabharata (Shanti Parva, 90.3) also says that “The proper function of the king [or any ruler or politician] is to rule according to Dharma and not to enjoy the luxuries of life.” Thus, a politician is not meant to take advantage of his position, but to execute his duties with the welfare of the people in mind, under the guidance of the rules of Dharma.


The basic rules of Dharma, as explained in the Manu-samhita (10.63) are: “Ahimsa (non-violence), Satya (truthfulness), Asteya (not acquiring illegitimate wealth), Shoucham (purity), and Indriyanigraha (control of the senses) are, in brief, the common rules of Dharma for all classes of men.”


These are the Yamas and Niyamas, which also includes Santosha–satisfaction or contentment of mind with what one has without undue endeavor; Tapas–voluntary austerity and tolerance in body, mind, and speech for a higher cause; Swadhyaya–self-analysis, introspection, scriptural research, and reflection to understand and perceive who and what is our real identity and how we are progressing; Ishwara-pranidhana–acceptance, devotion, and surrender to God, or the offering of the fruits of one’s actions to God; and Brahmacharya–following the eternal principle of Brahma, or the control of sensual passions in thought, word, and deed, particularly in the student stage of life.


Therefore, by learning these rules, how to apply them in all aspects of life, and by hearing the examples of the great souls in India’s history and great epics, a child would develop and build his character to be a truly strong, balanced and properly motivated individual who can continue to develop him or herself, and be a true contribution to the rest of society. When this kind of training is received at a young age, it can last for one’s whole life. This is what makes a difference in all aspects of society.


Training in Dharma, which is certainly at the heart of India’s Vedic tradition, can help provide for an orderly society. And an orderly society is the result and an expansion or even incarnation of Dharma.


This leads us to understand that the real happiness and prosperity of any nation is directly proportional to the number of men of character it has produced. This is why it is in the interest of the state or government to supply the means by which all children can understand these principles through appropriate education.


Therefore, it is this education that again needs to be offered and supplied to young students in India. This can be done by the government re-establishing the pre-schools, as previously mentioned, to teach the principles of Dharma. Or, as I have seen on my 2010 trip to India, through a grassroots effort of individuals, or husband and wife teams who give such classes on Dharma to the children of their neighbors or friends on weekends, such as Sunday mornings, they begin to influence each child who attends. This is very effective and will have long range results. Thus, everyone can do something. But people should team up and work together to make this possible and duplicate these methods that are successfully used in order to expand this process all across the country. They should also work with those honest and reputable politicians to help again establish such pre-schools throughout the nation so that gradually India can again return to being a country where corruption is not so pervasive. Then the character of the country will reflect the content of the character of the people who inhabit it.

Euthanasia: The Life-Death Continuum – Sandhya Jain: "

Sandhya JainSome unsatisfactory aspects of the Supreme Court judgment derive from a tacit assumption that the worldly life is the summon bonum (highest good) of existence. There appears to be a bias towards Western materialism and its bizarre quest to prolong human life to the point of abolishing death. This derives from the belief that there is just one life, at the end of which the soul remains in limbo for aeons, till the Day of Judgment assigns it to eternal heaven or hell. – Sandhya Jain

Swami Amritananda Dev Tirtha, Shankarachrya of
Sri Sharada Sarvagya Peeth


I am presenting below the facsimile of the letter in Hindi dated 25th March 2011 sent by Shankaracharya Swami Amrutanand Dev Tirth to Shri P. Daivamuthu.




Will the Maharashtra ATS, (Anti Truth Squad), Congress Bureau of Investigation/Intimidation (CBI) and the National (Hindu) Intimidation Agency (NIA) dare to foist a false case on the Shahi Imam of Jama Masjid Syed Ahmad Bukhari or the Cardinal of Bombay Oswald Gracias? These anti-Hindu and anti-National agencies are taking their operational instructions from the Firangi Memsahib Sonia Gandhi and her private family business called the Congress Party.

Men in the bonded labour of Sonia Gandhi like Digvijay Singh and P. Chidambaram acting together are co-ordinating all these anti-Hindu activities under the guise of tackling the imagined phantom called Saffron Terrorism. Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi, Digvijay Singh, P. Chidambaram are all promoters of Islamic terrorism in the Southern and Western parts of India and promoters of Christian terrorism in Orissa and the North-Eastern parts of India. Perhaps all of them are fated to get their due justice without any trial in the same manner as Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi got from Madame Destiny. I derive my inspiration for saying this from the following lines of immortal poetry:

“Glories of our Blood and State
Are shadows and not substantial things
Early or late we stoop to fate
Sceptre and crown must tumble down
And in the dust be equal made
Only the actions of the just
Smell sweet and blossom in the dust.”

The cancerous objective was to eat away the umbilical cord binding Tamil Hindus to Hindus in the rest of India and replace it with a sense of anti-Hindu Dravidian Tamil and anti-Hindu, non-Hindu Church ‘Tamil’ ness.

This was the lemon sold to Kashmiri Hindus too in the name of Kashmiriyat. The Kashmiriyat lemon sold to Kashmiri Hindus by Kashmiri Muslims (almost certainly this fiction was fabricated in the colonial Christian mind and its potential allowed to sprout in the Kashmiri Muslim mind) said, we Kashmiris are unique and so Kashmiri Hindus have more in common with Kashmiri Muslims than with Hindus in the rest of India.

This is vintage Christian war strategy - de-link the target community from its parent, give it a sense of separateness resulting in alienation, render it defenseless, alone and vulnerable, and then step in for the kill. The political propaganda that Sikhism is not Hinduism, Jainism is not Hinduism, is a piece of the same diabolic Church fabric. Sikhs and Jains who mouth this Church fiction must look at the tragic fate of Kashmiri Hindus which does not warrant repetition here."

Now comes demand for Muslim reservation in Parliament and State assemblies

New Delhi: Following demands for Job reservation and reservation in Educational institutions for Muslims in the country, Samajvadi Party Chief harp on Muslim reservation in assemblies and Parliament. The demand for reservation for Muslims in state assemblies and Parliament was made in the Lok Sabha on Thursday.

Before coming up with such sops to divide the Nation based on religious lines , Mulayam Singh should first show the audacity to implement the idea in his own party first and we are sure that there will be enough takers for it from Congress and Communist parties.

The Pioneer :: Home : >> Trapped in hatred

The Pioneer :: Home : >> Trapped in hatred

Balbir Punj

Pakistan is caught in a vortex of jihadi violence for which it has only itself to blame. A country founded on the ideology of hate couldn’t have fared any better.

The recent spate of violent incidents in Pakistan has left the uninitiated, particularly the peaceniks, shocked, startled and dazed. The internecine war between various jihadi groups in the name of Islam continues unabated. Fundamentalists are also targetting what remains of religious minority communities, particularly Hindus, in Pakistan. In the process, the country is falling apart and is being increasingly seen as a failed state by the rest of the world. The seeds of the spiralling violence were sown in the very ideology which led to Pakistan's creation. The demand for an independent Islamic state in the Indian sub-continent was fuelled by two factors - pride in their past among Muslims and their fear of the future in a Hindu-dominated India. The Muslim elite of pre-partition India that provided leadership to the Muslim masses was caught in a time warp and dreamed of reliving the Mughal glory. After the departure of the British, the prospects of competing with the Hindus (whom they had ruled) in a democratic set-up as equals frightened them. British imperialists and Indian Communists helped the Muslims to divide India

महाजाल पर सुरेश चिपलूनकर (Suresh Chiplunkar): कुत्ते की टेढ़ी पूँछ पाकिस्तान तथा विदेश मंत्रालय और मीडिया से बेहतर आवारा कुत्ते…… Pakistan’s Anti-India Policy and Stray Dogs in Kashmir

महाजाल पर सुरेश चिपलूनकर (Suresh Chiplunkar): कुत्ते की टेढ़ी पूँछ पाकिस्तान तथा विदेश मंत्रालय और मीडिया से बेहतर आवारा कुत्ते…… Pakistan’s Anti-India Policy and Stray Dogs in Kashmir

हाल ही में भारतीय सेना की इंटेलिजेंस कोर ने सीमापार से जो रेडियो संदेश पकड़े हैं उनके मुताबिक पाकिस्तान की खुफ़िया एजेंसी ISI ने कश्मीर में आतंकवादियों को रास्ता दिखाने वाले और सीमा पार करवाने वाले “भाड़े के टट्टुओं” यानी गाइडों का भत्ता चार गुना बढ़ा दिया है। पहले एक बार आतंकवादियों के गुट को सीमा पार करवाने पर गाइड को 25,000 रुपये मिलते थे, लेकिन अब ISI (ISI Pakistan) ने इसे बढ़ाकर सीधे एक लाख रुपये कर दिया है।

विगत कुछ माह से भारतीय सेना ने जिस प्रकार आतंकवादियों पर अपना शिकंजा कसा है और आतंकवादियों के घुसने के रास्तों पर पहरा और चौकसी बढ़ाई है, उसे देखते हुए घुसपैठ में काफ़ी कमी आई है। इसीलिये ISI को अपने कश्मीरी गाइडों का भत्ता बढ़ाने पर मजबूर होना पड़ा है। अमूमन गर्मियों में जब बर्फ़ पिघलती है तब भारी संख्या में आतंकवादी भारत में घुसने में कामयाब हो जाते हैं, जबकि ठण्ड में बर्फ़बारी की वजह से कई पहाड़ी रास्ते बन्द हो जाते हैं। परन्तु इन गर्मियों में पाकिस्तान को आतंकवादी इधर ठेलने में भारी परेशानी का सामना करना पड़ रहा है, क्योंकि भारतीय सुरक्षा बलों (Indian Army in Kashmir) ने छोटे-छोटे रास्तों पर जमकर पहरेदारी की है, और जंगल में चरवाहों के भेष में भटकने वाले “गाइडों” को खदेड़ दिया है। मजबूरी में ISI ने एक फ़ेरे की फ़ीस बढ़ाकर एक लाख कर दी है, फ़िर भी उन्हें गाइड आसानी से नहीं मिल रहे हैं…


अब बात कुत्तों की चली है, तो एक और खबर…

भारतीय सेना ने कश्मीर घाटी में आवारा कुत्तों (Stray Dogs in Kashmir) की हत्या और उनके गायब होने के सम्बन्ध में जाँच शुरु कर दी है। श्रीनगर में पिछले एक वर्ष में ऐसा देखने में आया है कि आवारा कुत्तों के समूह के समूह अचानक मृत पाये जाते हैं या गायब हो जाते हैं। सीमारेखा पर स्थित गाँवों में यह स्थिति बार-बार देखने में आई है। सेना की दसवीं डिवीजन के प्रवक्ता लेफ़्टिनेंट कर्नल एनके आयरी ने कहा है कि यह आवारा कुत्ते (जिन्हें आवारा कहना भी एक तरह की क्रूरता है) सेना के जवानों के लिये काफ़ी मददगार सिद्ध हो रहे हैं, रात के समय किसी भी संदिग्ध गतिविधि को देखकर ये कुत्ते भौंककर जवानों को आगाह कर देते हैं। सेना के कई अफ़सरों को ये कुत्ते बेहद प्रिय हैं।


हबीब रहमान नामक सेना से रिटायर्ड लेफ़्टिनेंट बताते हैं कि यह आवारा कुत्ते आसानी से सीख जाते हैं, इन्हें खाने-खिलाने का खर्च भी कम है तथा रात को इन्हें बिना किसी खतरे के इधर-उधर घूमने के लिये खुला भी छोड़ा जा सकता है। सबसे बड़ी बात यह कि इन्हें सेना के विशालकाय कुत्तों की तरह आसानी से पहचाना भी नहीं जा सकता कि ये जवानों के मददगार हैं। परन्तु सेना की मदद करने की वजह से पिछले कुछ समय से इन कुत्तों की सामूहिक हत्या शुरु हो गई है। मेजर जनरल अशोक मेहता (रिटायर्ड) ने काफ़ी पहले अपने एक लेख में कृपा नामक एक कुत्ते का जिक्र किया है जिसे पहाड़ों मे घूमते समय वे पकड़ लाये थे। नियंत्रण रेखा पर गोरखा राइफ़ल्स का वह प्रिय कुत्ता था और उसने कई आतंकवादियों और घुसपैठियों को ढेर करने में मदद की थी।

आंध्रप्रदेश के DGP स्वर्णजीत सेन ने भी नक्सलवादियों के इलाकों में स्थित पुलिस थानों को ऐसे ही आवारा कुत्तों को पालने और उन्हें अपना “मित्र” बनाने की सलाह दी थी और उसके नतीजे भी काफ़ी अच्छे मिले हैं। माओवादियों (Maoists in India)और नक्सलवादियों ने कुत्तों की इस “जागते रहो” मुहिम से चिढ़कर अन्दरूनी गाँवों में कुत्तों का सफ़ाया करना शुरु कर दिया, और गाँववालों को भी धमकियाँ दी हैं कि वे गाँव में एक भी कुत्ता न रखें।


Karnataka Govt's shameless admission : SC hasn't issued directions to demolish temples - Karnataka Temple demolition | hindujagruti.org

Karnataka Govt's shameless admission : SC hasn't issued directions to demolish temples - Karnataka Temple demolition | hindujagruti.org: "

Bengaluru (Karnataka): In a program held at Udupi, Dr. V. S. Acharya, the Minister for ‘Mujrai’ unabashedly admitted that there was no such order issued by the Supreme Court for demolishing temples. Dr. Acharya said further, “The Court had asked to check the plan and authority-letter of temples. The Government had instructed Administration to shift the temples, in a peaceful manner, that were creating obstacles in traffic only after discussing the matter with respective temple committees. It was also instructed that where temples are made just by smearing ‘kumkum’ on some stone which had no traditional value, should also be shifted after discussing with those people who have constructed such temples; but the officers misconstrued the instructions and without issuing ‘show cause’ notice, issued notice to demolish temples creating chaos.” In the beginning of this program, Shri. Vishweshteertha, the ‘Pejavar Muthadhish’ said, “The Government should, rather than demolishing temples, amend the Act so that nobody’s sentiments are hurt.”

......Then the Govt. should re-construct the demolished temples as atonement ! – Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS)

5000 temples were branded as ‘unauthorized’ by interpreting the Supreme Court order in a wrong manner. Later, the Government took sudden initiative in demolishing even those temples about which there was no controversy. HJS tried to stage agitations all over the State to warn the Government. Despite this, the Government committed the sin of demolishing more than 250 temples. The idols from these temples were broken and thrown on the roads. The Government kept mum, like ‘Dhrutarashtra-Gandhari’, although it realized that it was a wrong action. Now awareness has been created among Hindus due to HJS agitation and the Government is trying to cover up the matter by admitting that there was no order by the Supreme Court. HJS condemns this action and demands that the Government should re-construct the demolished temples by recovering money from the concerned officers. – Mr. Mohan Gauda, spokesperson, HJS, Karnataka

The Enemy Within
Dr. Vijaya Rajiva



In a remarkable event at the India Today Conclave Dr. Subramania Swamy spoke honestly and forthrightly on the question of how there cannot be social harmony in the Indian subcontinent until the two proselytizing religions Christianity and Islam accept that India is a Hindu majority country with a long history of religious tolerance that was shattered with the coming of the Islamic and Christian (British) regimes. It ended with the Partition of Akhanda Bharat and the successive ethnic cleansing of Hindus from Bangladesh, Pakistan and within Indian itself, in the state of Kashmir.Nearly 500,000 Kashmiri Hindus were driven out of Kashmir merely because they were Hindus. The Hindu population of Bangladhesh which had been 35% is now v7 %. Likewise in Pakistan.

As Shri R.Venkatanarayanan, former Secretary to the Government of India, later former
National Secretary of the HDAS (Hindu Dharma Acharya Sabha) and currently Advisor to Swami Dayananda Sarasvati, put it :

“ As far as I can recall, this is the first time in India that an eminent person has spoken so openly from a non- religious platform that social harmony in India, a religiously pluralistic society, is dependent on how Christianity and Islam conduct themselves in regard to Hinduism. Unless what Sri Swamy has brought out is assiduously buried deep by vested interests (the media will do its best to do so) the consequence in civil debate in India is likely to benefit social harmony. Hindus are the best neighbours in the world, provided their toes are not trampled upon. “ ( in an e-mail to Breakingindia.group)

The Fakir's Mask: Public Apparitions of Sai Baba in and around Mumbai

Abstract: This talk about the modern Indian charismatic Sai Baba of Shirdi (1830s–1918) takes up the question of the apparent ubiquity of his likeness in contemporary Mumbai, where it circulates as the emblem of a universalistic religious attitude (with a specific emphasis on Hindu-Muslim comity). The argument builds on ethnographic research on the public streets, where a diverse constituency—-to be identified with shantytown residents who retain ties with their villages—-erects shrines housing images of Hindu deities and other protector figures. Foremost among these figures is Sai Baba. The inquiry encountered a dramatic turn when municipal officials, acting in the name of the public interest, initiated citywide demolitions of "illegal religious structures." The episode may be framed as a clash of rival geographies, with zones marked by Sai Baba to be identified as generically sacred space, ostensibly free of sectarian loyalties. But if the image's address functioned in this way among a religiously diverse subaltern population, the claim proved unrecognizable in the eyes of the state.

William Elison is an IHUM Postdoctoral Fellow at Stanford. Trained at Chicago in the History of Religions Program, he specializes in the ethnography of religious life in subaltern India. He is currently working on a study of practices of marking and organizing sacred space in the slums, streets, and film studios of Mumbai. He has authored articles about local cultic practices and their mediation by public-cultural forms in slum-based and tribal communities and, in collaboration with two colleagues, has also begun writing a book about that landmark of 1970s Hindi cinema, Manmohan Desai's Amar Akbar Anthony.

A Sad Story of Study in Sanskrit

A Sad Story of Study in Sanskrit: "


*** Sad Story of Study in Sanskrit
by Dr Jyotsna Kamat ***



Meanwhile Arvind was trying for a teaching job in school or college throughout the state. Corruption is rampant every where in India. A huge amount is expected as donation by the institutions, which advertise the post. The government is the only employer and pressure for employment is such that entrance examination for teachers’ jobs has become compulsory. Qualifying age is increased and job aspirants’ numbers are mind boggling. Arvind is ready to take any job, clerical, teaching or management.


P.S. Please do leave a comment here in case you are aware of any suitable employment opportunities for Arvind. I hope to speak to him sometime over the next few days and will be mentioning about these two posts to him: Public Service post on Positions, Vacancies in Indic Studies and Mathematics, History and worms eating manuscripts…

1. Dnyanesh Maharao, the play-wright says in the beginning of the play that – Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj was not religious. He believed in humanity and believed in the principle that ‘all religions are equal; therefore, people still remember him.”

2. All religious people are cunning.

5. Maharaj asks his devotee to call Kubera when a person tells him about his financial problems. The devotee says that the Deity of wealth is Lakshmi. Maharaj says, “Lakshmi does not keep her promises; therefore, call up Kubera only.”

6. There is a sentence in the play that ‘The father of Gods is thief.”

7. One devotee asks, “ When I perform ‘shraddha (post-death rites)’ because my father is dead; a crow flies to 3 windows and pecks in the food. That means how many affairs did my father have?”

9. There is a statement that “Politicians’s step is like the step of Namdev.”

Delusions of Intellect

Delusions of Intellect: "

Ramachandra Guha is a deconstructionist’s delight, a hypocrite’s role model and a template for aspiring court historians. What does St. Stephen’s feed its wards that entire armies of them become Hindu haters and gatekeepers of the West? The list of its alumni who’ve made it big is truly horrifying: Natwar Singh, Digvijay Singh, Mani Shankar Aiyar, Khushwant Singh, Barkha Dutt, Mukul Kesavan, Prem Shankar Jha, Samir Jain, Vikram Chandra, and Ramachandra Guha. All of them, ultra-careerists endowed with a special knack of recognizing the buttered side of the bread, all of them united by the tough fibre of visceral hatred for the Sangh Parivar and the BJP. And of late, Narendra Modi.


Guha’s latest piece is a generous outpouring of smelly textual excreta that flows over 1286 words. And that’s putting it charitably: you can’t dignify this horrendous retching by terming it a personal attack on Narendra Modi. Guha doesn’t have a point unless you want to call vile pamphleteering as a point. And he fails spectacularly at the said vile pamphleteering. Mr. Guha, I’ll show you how it’s done.


Ram Guha is the latest proof that Mahatma Gandhi still retains career-making prospects of epic proportions. From a cricket commentator-historian to Pontificator on Everything From Ecology to Arundhati Roy to Hagiographer as Historian , Guha has traversed thousands of miles. On occasion, he loves to share his wet dreams about the fact that he’s engaged in researching on the Mahatma and that it’s educative, transformative, blah blah blah. The one thing he doesn’t say is this: how much of what he’s learnt from Gandhi does he actually practice. Your answer is as good as mine: none. Gandhi was the king of frugal living. Guha wears his suits, knows his cocktails, travels by cars and flights and attends expensive book release functions. This is a gushing, fawning, almost-slavish and for those very reason, very accurate “profile” of the guy who goes around today preaching about the subliminal impact Gandhi can have on your life. Gandhi preached and practiced the dictums of hate none and forgive thy enemy. Guha has left behind massive trails of undisguised BJP, Hindutva, Modi, and Sangh Parivar-bashing. Gandhi’s ishta devata (personal God of choice and liking) was Rama while Guha’s mouth-frothing incoherence on the Ram Mandir issue is well-known. Gandhi spun the charaka as a means to cleanse the soul of impurities. We know what Guha spins.


Are these the transformative experiences Guha has had in his soul-altering research on the Mahatma including the stuff about the Sabarmati Ashram?


Here’s the thing Mr. Guha: you see what you want to see. There’s no other way or explanation. You travel to Ahmedabad and fail to see the commendable BRT implementation in the city. Instead, you see some monument built to honour Mahatma Gandhi and get all riled up like a braindead model who found a pimple on her cheek. Really, who’s paranoid here, Mr. Guha? Finally, if you hate Modi so much, you should as a matter of principle, stay away from Gujarat.


Mr. Ramachandra Guha, how can you look at yourself in the mirror?

Advocate Mrs. Neha Raut said, “I was a Hindu; but I converted to Islam after marrying a Muslim. My mother-in-law taught me to read ‘namaz’ whereas my father-in-law taught me to cook kabab-biryani.”

She also said that since there is likelihood of the ‘mangalsutra’ getting robbed, there was no need to wear it.
