If you think Hindus are not Hindus' own worst enemires, please see this toung'n'cheek tweet by a Sonia Sena slave and see who retweeted. So despite all the whines and cries of the BIF on Muslim genocide under BJP govt, it is in fact they who are laughing.

https://twitter.com/rautsanjay61/status ... 6055502848

To get a measure of BJP looking abjectly week, please watch this video where UP MLA Suresh Tiwari explains himself about telling his constituents not to buy veggies from some Muslim vendor. I do not find it any way offensive, and on the contrary, it sounds reasonable and responsible. He could easily have inflamed passions.

So BJP instead of coming out and all guns blazing in support of this guy have instead issued a show cause notice to him. Do these f!king idiots think the 'world' is going to give them any brownie points for this abject surrender instead of supporting their own? Adothi evil b!tch will cite this very video to claim 'genocide of Muslims" in India on some white media

Sorry to say this but the guy above is a dim bulb for having made these comments, given his position and then being caught on camera on top of it. Was it really his task to ask people to do this?

PM Modi gets a SOS message from UAE for Indian healthcare personnel

PM Modi gets a SOS message from UAE for Indian healthcare personnel


The UAE, a federation of seven emirates with a population of less than 10 million people, has already reported 11,000 Covid-19 cases and has been adding an average of 500 patients every day.

Apr 28, 2020

The United Arab Emirates has requested the government to send Indian doctors and nurses to help the Emirates fight the Covid-19 pandemic, a senior government official said on Tuesday.

The UAE, a federation of seven emirates with a population of less than 10 million people, has already reported 11,000 Covid-19 cases and has been adding an average of 500 patients every day.

It relies heavily on foreign-educated doctors and paramedics including those from India to staff its hospitals.

Some of them were on leave when governments in Delhi and Abu Dhabi cancelled all commercial flights to stop the coronavirus diseases from spreading their respective countries.

“We have received two requests. One, to allow the healthcare providers who were travelling to India when commercial flights were cancelled to return to UAE to resume their duties,” a top government functionary told Hindustan Times.

The second, is permission to hire or avail the services of doctors and nurses for a shorter duration to tide over the immediate crisis.

“The requests are being considered of the government,” the official said.

Officials said Abu Dhabi had offered to send a special plane to fly the Indian healthcare professionals employed by its hospitals.

Considering the nature of the relationship between the two countries, the first request is likely to be processed first, another official said.

The request for additional doctors and paramedical staff, however, requires wider consultations within the government, the official said. The decision would be made after evaluating India’s requirements at this stage.

But the effort is to find a way out to help UAE at this crucial juncture.

Just a fortnight back, India had sent a 15-member team of military doctors and paramedics to Kuwait and promised to deploy more personnel should the need arise.

These gestures, a foreign ministry official said, should be seen against the backdrop of how ties between India and the Gulf countries had deepened over the last five-six years.

Right from the beginning of the NDA government’s first term, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his key advisers have invested diplomatic energy in improving ties with countries in West Asia, particularly Saudi Arabia, UAE, Jordan, Bahrain, Qatar and Oman

In 2015, Narendra Modi was the first Indian PM to visit the UAE - also home to 3.4 million Indian workers - in over three decades. In all, the six Gulf countries - Saudi Arabia. Kuwait, Oman, Qatar and Bahrain - have about 12.6 million Indians.

The personal relations started paying off within a few years when National Security Adviser Ajit Doval was able to persuade the Gulf countries to either push out anti-Indian elements or send them over to India.

It was a reflection of this high-octane diplomacy at work that Dubai handed over Dawood Ibrahim associate and 1993 Mumbai blasts accused, Mohammed Farooq and Saudi Arabia deported Lashkar-e-Taiba operative Habibur Rahman. In all, over a 100 wanted persons have been deported to India by the Gulf countries over the last six years. Last year, UAE allowed Indian agencies to fly out AgustaWestland case accused Rajiv Saxena and prominent aviation lobbyist Deepak Talwar in a special plane.

More recently, UAE made an exception for Indians when it started packing off foreign nationals from nearly every other country including Pakistan after the outbreak of coronavirus disease. Since state governments in India weren’t geared up to accommodate the Indian citizens abroad, the Indian government had requested to take care of them for some more time. India, on its part, had assured the Gulf countries that New Delhi would maintain uninterrupted supply of food and essential items from India.

Rahul M wrote:Suraj San, KLPD ji,
Why on earth would you think that I am unaware of the positive steps taken ??

Cmon saar, I'm not accusing you of any such thing. I've tried to be nuanced and considerate in my previous response (as opposed to the one before that directed at someone else basically asking him what's the point of blind rona dhona).

As I mentioned in the previous post, the state taking on the media directly, is poor optics. It plays into their hands. This is a fairly universal phenomenon. The opposition has no presence in the legislature or executive nationally at all, but their two resources are the ones that have an aura of 'independence' from the elected apparatus - the media and judiciary. The SM taking on MSM is always more preferable as a visible act.

Both these entities are venal and self serving, with no existing mechanism to determine who ensures their own competence. Arguably that's what ensures the INC ecosystem can use them. 'Attack on media' and 'attack on judiciary' are pet phrases to prevent the government from taking them on.

If there's anything Modi has always shown, it's that he understands how to never play someone's game to their rules, and instead reorients things the way that maximizes his political choices. How many people predicted the Art 370 J&K move ? Or even the smart bifurcation map to ensure pathway to the entire Siachen/Ladakh sector unimpeded by the valley ? These are the actions of a person who knows how to avoid others's political yorkers.

There exists no existing anti-libel/defamation law in India with teeth. Any such legal proceedings are typically ad hoc on the basis of things like hurt sentiments, or even PILs filed by those not directly involved. The BJP's bench strength in terms of legal stalwarts in the ranks is quite weak in relation to that of the opposition, who have an extensive ecosystem. Their primary legal genius is dead, having crafted probably both the CAA and J&K case as his lasting legacies.

As to the inability to respond to street level thuggery, it is true that the parivar is a little softer on that now. In my view, the BJP should not be messing with this directly . Any political movement needs a professional political entity, and it needs a separate street level enforcement wing like Bajrang Dal. For ages, the BJP had good street level strength and poor political power. Now they're overwhelmingly the only national party, but the parivar no longer have the demonstrable street strength they once demonstrated. The RSS don't count here - they're a volunteer organization with a different aim, and should not get into messy fights.

The parivar needs stronger entities capable of responding to street level violence, and a stronger technological team capable of dominating SM. This can't all be from BJP. They're only one part of a larger family of organizations. They've a specific long term goal of their own - become a dominant national political party, and they've succeeded beyond probably SP Mukherjee's wildest dreams in that regard.

So his constituents pounce on him and ask him to do something about those vendors spitting on produce etc. How does he respond? He could have said no I don't agree, its a rumor. Very 'secular' thing to say. But assuming this spitting has some validity, and there are people concerned about it, he could have bad mouthed the vendor. Then of course the secularists would have demanded that ModiJi to sack him and of ModiJi didn't, Muslim genocide will be headlines in newspapers. So he took the easy way out said ignore the vendors. Well one can disagree with that, but the amount of hate he is getting from secularists is unwarranted.

GJ is always a case to go and introspect about BJP. Off the record, Hindu religious places and businesses have been asking for real help for almost twenty years now but they haven't received any level playing field. From constant expansion of green business takeovers to getting Hindu religious leaders being sent home packing in tribal areas. If anything things have accelerated exponentially rather than slowing down.

His constitutional position does not allow him to make such statements. As a non elected leader, he could have been "controversial".

Others could have expressed their concerns but not him. That's the way the cookie crumbles.

Gujarat: 10 arrested for attacking police in Vadodra’s Kasam Aala Mosque area, main accused Nazir and 6 others absconding
https://www.opindia.com/2020/04/gujarat ... -lockdown/
As per a report in DeshGujarat, the primary accused named Nazir Sindhi first abused and threatened to kill a police officer named Gautam Kanti, if he did not vacate the area. The cop was then forced to call backup. Post-Sehri, at around 5:00 am, a group of 50 men and women were seen loitering around the streets, in complete violation of the lockdown norms.

Thank you, Kuwait for standing with the Indian Muslims! The Hindutva bigots calculated that given the huge economic stakes involved the Muslim and Arab world will not care about the persecution of Muslims in India. The bigots forgot that Indian Muslims enjoy huge goodwill in the eyes of the Arab and Muslim world for their services over centuries to Islamic causes, excellence in Islamic and Arabic scholarship, cultural and civisilational gifts to world heritage. Names like Shah Waliullah Dehlavi, Iqbal, Abul Hasan Nadwi, Wahiduddin Khan, Zakir Naik and many others are respected household names in the Arab and Muslim world. Mind you, bigots, Indian Muslims have opted until now not to complain to the Arab and Muslim world about your hate campaigns and lynchings and riots. The day they are pushed to do that, bigots will face an avalanche.

I think they are being too smart. Recent single source developments rattled most of the hindus. they know some sort of retaliation coming. all these crying wolf statements are nothing but to paint hindus as villain if hindus ever hit back. classic palestine move. throw bombs on jews first and then prepare ground for victimhood.

in long term, our relation with middle east will turn into isreal-me type relations. we will be having real enemy like Iran, regularly going against us on every platform. and then passive enemies all over the place. I can predict our future here.

@dikgaj:

This is most revealing from a functionary of GONCTDelhi: (1) he confirms that the "Muslim& Arab world" cares abt Indian muslims only because Indian Islam has "served Islamic causes" and "excelled in Islamic and Arabic scholarship"-no ref to serving Indian "causes/scholarship"

(2) his list of icons who served "Islamic causes": Shah Waliullah - modern proponent of violent jihad and violently anti-Hindu/Sikh, Iqbal - proponent of Pakistan and two-nation theory and icon of rapist/jihadi Muslim League, Abul Hasan Nadwi - who claims in his "Muslims in India" (1980) that civilization+enlightenment+prosperity was gifted to India only when Islam came, Islam taught the Hindus how to dress and converse in a cultured manner. it was the Muslims who gave history to the Hindus...

Nadwi-as before Muslims what existed in India was a collection of mythologies and folklores which the Hindus regarded as history. Everything that was good about India today was because of Muslims. Everything that was bad among the Muslims was because of Hindu influence.!

For Nadwi, in The Musalman (1977), Muslim practices during Muharram/Urs r completely un-Islamic which has no sanction anywhere else in the Muslim world, particularly within KSA. For Nadwi, not just Hindus, but plurality within Indian Islam doesnt match Saudi Arab practices.

Given the blatant anti-Hindu speeches/writings of Zakir Naik, the only name that doesnt match with the rest is Maulana Wahidudin Khan(if he is meant). However, a little known fact is that he was associated with Tablighi's& his appreciation of Tablighi Jamaat has been consistent.

In his appraisal of Tablighis, Maulana Wahiuddin clearly appreciates the role of Tablighis, especially Ilyas, in "othering the Hindu" among Mewatis - which as in all Indian Islamic "reformist revival" is based on "Arabizing" the Hindu-India-contaminated Indian muslim.

the final threat in this piece is uncanny: it reminds of Partition-eve similar line of ML stalwarts reassuring the common Muslim they left behind in "India", saying both "hostage Hindus"(in Pak) and Islamic countries will ensure interests of muslims in India.

The explicit threat to bring in a foreign power "avalanche" to intervene in an India which is not yet Islamic and has populations who may have their own ideas of culture and civilization and rights too, is atrocious in its arrogance. An arrogance last heard in Partition.

Mohammed Akbar Ali was so keen to meet Commissioner of Police, Hyderabad that he not only tweeted on 24th March but paid to promote that tweet too.

Rahul Gandhi must take tuition from Chidambaram to understand difference between writing off, waiving off: Javadekar
NEW DELHI: Union Minister Prakash Javadekar on Wednesday dismissed the claim made by Congress leader Rahul Gandhi that Centre has waived off Rs 65,000 crore of loan defaulters, stating that he must take tuition from former finance minister P Chidambaram to understand the difference between writing off and waiving off.

"I was taken aback by Rahul Gandhi's comment that Modi govt has waived off Rs 65,000 crore. Not a single penny has been waived off. Writing off is not waiving off," said Javadekar in a video message.

Delhi Minority Commission chief says Hindus will face an ‘avalanche’ if Indian Muslims complain to their friends in the Arab world

29 April, 2020
OpIndia Staff

The Kuwait government, through their ambassador in India Jassem Al-Najem, have clarified that they respect the UN charter of non-interference in other countries’ affairs and respecting the sovereignty of nations.

Shockingly, the Delhi Minority Commission chairman hailed notorious radical Islamist and terror sympathiser Zakir Naik in his post as he claimed people like Naik are respectful household names in the Arab region and Muslim world.

He claimed that Indian Muslims like hah Waliullah Dehlavi, Iqbal, Abul Hasan Nadwi, Wahiduddin Khan, Zakit Naik earned respect for their in the Arab world.

“Mind you, bigots, Indian Muslims have opted until now not to complain to the Arab and Muslim world about your hate campaigns and lynchings and riots. The day they are pushed to do that, bigots will face avalanche,” he added.

Kuwait ambassador’s statement
Recently, an old statement by the Secretary-General of Kuwait cabinet had gone viral on social media, where the Secretary-General had parroted Pakistan’s favourite lines about Muslims being persecuted in India.

However, the Kuwait government, through their ambassador in India Jassem Al-Najem, have clarified that they respect the UN charter of non-interference in other countries’ affairs and respecting the sovereignty of nations. The Kuwaiti ambassador had also highlighted the current cooperation between the two nations.

Recently, upon request from the Kuwaiti government, India had deployed a Rapid Response Team to assist in their fight against coronavirus. For two weeks, the Indian RRT had rendered emergency medical assistance in testing and treatment of coronavirus patients to Kuwaiti professionals.

Anti-India propaganda in Arab world
The Hinduphobic comments of Zafarul Islam come on the heels of several reports that some section in Kuwait has raised their voice against the alleged persecution of Muslims in India amid the coronavirus outbreak.

It is pertinent to note that just yesterday, the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) reiterated that the government of Kuwait does not support interference in India’s internal matters and deeply respects the friendly relations between the two countries.

Last week, after the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, had urged the Indian government to take “urgent steps” to protect the rights of its minority Muslim community. However, Minority Affairs Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi had asserted that Muslims are prosperous in the country and those trying to ‘vitiate the atmosphere cannot be their friends’.

Soon after, Saudi Arabia, Oman and Qatar had officially stated that they do not support the anti-India propaganda currency going on by ‘foreign-sponsored social media handles and posts’.

It was recently found that many Pakistani nationals have been impersonating Arab elites on social media to share controversial statements against India in order to create discord between the nations and to dox Indians working in Gulf nations.

BJP hits back

BJP national spokesperson Nalin Kohli has hit out at Zafarul Islam Khan for “inviting” foreign countries to interfere in India’s internal affairs and questioned the Delhi government’s stand on his comments.

Nalin Kohli also slammed the Delhi minorities panel chief for mentioning the name of Zakir Naik among honourable Indian Muslims.

Zafarul Khan is the son Wahiduddin Khan - a dyed in the wool islamic "thinker,teacher,writer,philosopher" who has been quoted many a times by islamo-supremacists to justify some of their bigotry . His anti-hindu and anti-India comments, and the rather silly schoolboyish " you hindus better be nice else we'll go complain to our arab masters" statements are hardly surprising but what's surprising is so many such fundamentalists who hold high positions and live on government dole and yet spew hatred on the very country that feeds and protects them.

In other news it looks like USCIRF is under full control of pakis these days. Not that USCIRF has ever been kind or fair to India but their latest report and following tweets makes me wonder if USCIRF's HQ is in DC or Islamabad.

Goal of USCIRF is to promote conversion and provide a cover for overt/covert missionaries.

They work with jihadis towards that goal and many of the BIF continuously help them with how to do propaganda and who to attack inside Govt. branches that includes politicians, bureaucrats, judges because all of them want GCs for their kith and kin.

Harsh Mader, Burkha, Prannay, N Ram all work with them very closely.

Important, so posting in full

In a recently posted article on François Gautier’s website, he lists the names of 50 people who can be described as enemies of Hindus and Hinduism. He says that he created the list, which is incomplete, without malice aforethought.

Here is the list, 50 Biggest Enemies of Hindus (Dead or Alive), including the reasons he gives to justify his choice of enemies — Editor

Thomas Babington Macaulay
– He played a significant role in introducing English and western concepts to education in India. This was worthy as no one can deny that English gives India an edge in dealing with other countries to penetrate into the era of globalization. Yet, Macaulay had very little regard for Hindu culture and education including all the books written in Sanskrit which actually contains all the historical information. Rather, the worthless abridgement used at preparatory schools in England is considered more valuable than books written in Sanskrit language. Today, much of India’s intellectuals and Media stand as a proof of the success of Macaulay as they look down on their own culture and analyse India through the western prism.

Indian National Congress – Only a few people know that the Indian National Congress was founded on 28 December 1885 by a Britisher, A.O. Hume. Its objectives were to “allow all those who work for the national (read British) good to meet each other personally, to discuss and decide of the political operations to start during the year”. And certainly, till the end of the 19th century, the Congress, who regarded British rule in India as a “divine dispensation”, was pleased with criticising moderately the Government, while endorsing its loyalty to the Crown and its faith in “liberalism” and “the British innate sense of justice”! The real nationalist leaders like Sri Aurobindo and Tilak, were put aside by the “moderate Congress”.

Jawaharlal Nehru – A French historian Alain Danielou writes, “Nehru was the perfect replica of a certain type of Englishman.” Several times he used the expression ‘continental people’, with an amused and sarcastic manner, to designate French or Italians. He reviled non-anglicised Indians and had a very shallow and partial knowledge of India. His ideal, the romantic socialism of 19th century Britain, was totally unfit to India, as the conditions of India were totally different from 19th century Europe. Nehru has been promoted by Congress as an icon, which nobody has yet dared to touch, but as history will show more and more, Nehru had done tremendous harm to India by initiating movements and patterns, which not only did vast damage in their times, but continue to survive and weigh down the Indian nation, long after their uselessness has been realized.

Babur – Jawaharlal Nehru wrote about Babur mentioning him as the destroyer of the Ram Temple in Ayodhya. The truth is that Babur indulged in unnecessary massacres and demolished thousands of temples showcasing himself as a ferocious Mughal emperor. His ultimate goal was probably the destruction and the enslaving of the Hindus. It is sad to see that Indian history books have no comments on such incidents.

Sonia Gandhi – It is true that Sonia brought discipline, order and consistency into the Congress party. But the amount of unrestrained power that she, a non-Indian, a simple elected MP like hundreds of others, possessed when the Congress was in power for ten years, should frighten us: a word, indeed a glance of her was sufficient to trigger action by her entourage, using any means—bearing in mind the case of P. Chidambaram when he would have allowed Narendra Modi to be killed by a Ishrat Jahan, a known terrorist. Thus, the instruments of power had never been so perverted in India. The CBI allegedly suppressed all orders against Quattrocchi and even allowed him to get away with billions of rupees which he had stolen from India. Yet, without blinking an eyelid, and with the Indian Media turning a blind eye, it went ruthlessly after Narendra Modi, the then chief minister of the most efficiently run state, the most corruption free.

The Pope – Christianity, unfortunately, is still clinging in the belief of a single true God, Jesus Christ, in spite of the feeble attempts at “Ecumenism” of the Church. It would be all right if the Church was playing by the rules of the free market, where there is a certain amount of fairness—“you see what advantages my religion is bringing you, compare it with your own and then feel free to choose”. But, sadly, the missionaries are using indirect and persuasive means to convert the poorest of the poor Hindus in India—offering free medical treatment, free schooling, interest-free loans, even going as far as organizing “fake miracle” prayer meetings, as it is regularly done by American preacher Benny Hinn. This is practiced in India, but they dare not do it in China, where freedom of religion is curtailed and any missionary caught persuading is kicked out. Would Hindus dare convert Christians in France, for instance? The confounding fact is that there is not a single Hindu temple in France, as their construction has not been allowed and there is even a minister in charge of hunting down “sects” (meaning what is not Christian-oriented).

Rahul Gandhi – No doubt Rahul Gandhi is a decent, well-meaning man, though totally ignorant of India’s culture and spirituality. But his ignorance becomes problematic as times. Bearing in mind the case of Wikileaks cables, where Rahul Gandhi tells the American ambassador that Hindu terrorism was more dangerous than Islamic terrorism—“The bigger threat may be the growth of radicalized Hindu groups, which create religious tensions and political confrontations with the Muslim community”. It looks like Rahul and his mother were trying to make an example of Colonel Purohit and Sadhvi Pragya to gratify their Muslim electorate by issuing direct orders to get a confession out of him and Sadhvi Pragya at any cost, even torture.

The Communist Party of India – Very few people know that the communists refused to collaborate against the Nazis during the 2nd World War, because Russia was then allied with Germany. Their attitude during the war with China in 1962 was also very uncertain. Most Marxists in India are anti-Hindu as a principle (Marx was against religion) and their intellectuals are expert at criticising Hindus. At a time when Marxism is deceased all over the world, including in Cuba and China, India is the last haven of communism. Though communists have certain sincerity (they generally are not corrupt and live a simple life, contrary to many Indian politicians) but they contribute very little to India’s growth, with their constant strikes and demands. Naxalism which is a great threat to this country is also a sprout of communism.

Priyanka Gandhi – We all can assume that in case Sonia Gandhi leaves India or something happens to her, Priyanka—and not Rahul—will be the natural choice of the Congress to take up the wheels. Would Priyanka bring a change in Congress? Unlikely. She will think like a Christian and a westerner, not like an Indian and adopt Nehru’s misplaced socialist and popular idea’s, which have landed India in corruption and red tape. Also, her husband Robert Vadra, a man who multiplied his wealth by 600 times in five years, is an albatross around her neck.

Barkha Dutt – Married twice to a Kashmiri Muslim, from a young journalist, Barkha turned into a Hindu basher (you just have to listen to the Radia tapes to understand that). The power that came with NDTV, as it grew into the most sophisticated TV news channel, and her proximity to the Congress party, also influenced her mind. There are also accusations of corruption against her and her boss Prannoy Roy.

Kancha Ilaiah – His hatred for Hindus can be seen in his immensely controversial book, Why I am not a Hindu, Kancha Ilaiah is a converted Christian who hates Hindus, particularly Brahmins whom he accuses of all the possible evils. He recently gave a statement on vegetarianism calling it as anti-nationalism, “For me, my nation starts with eating beef. Unfortunately, we gave up eating beef and our brains are not growing now. There is no enough protein,” Probably he doesn’t know that many westerners are now switching to vegetarianism.

Aamir Khan – Aamir Khan’s TV program on social issues, Satyamev Jayate, even raised his status to an activist for human rights. His comment on ‘Intolerance’, that his (Hindu) wife wanted to leave India, alienated him from many of his supporters. His anti-Hindu gurus film, like PK, also created a lot of hostility.

Shah Rukh Khan – As Aamir Khan, Shah Rukh is also married to a Hindu, but raises his kids as Muslims, and whenever it suits him plays the minority card (Pakistan invited him many times to settle there). In fact, playing a little anti-Hindu card pleases their Muslim fans and does no harm to their image, as Hindus anyway never retaliate.

Amartya Sen – He got the Nobel Prize, teaches in Oxford and is highly respected in the West but only few know that Amartya Sen rode his fame on the back of his false theories about poverty in India and in the West. Despite all that the Congress Government gave him the Nalanda University project for which he did nothing.

Rajdeep Sardesai – Rajdeep is not an honest journalist—witness the incident when he sat on a sting interview that showed the Congress paying bribes to BJP MLA’s to defect. He was also seen in his true light in New York, where he portrayed himself as a victim of a hard-line Hindu, whereas the video replays showed that in fact he was the aggressor. No doubt, Rajdeep is a personal enemy of Narendra Modi and has never veiled his dislike for the BJP.

Angana Chatterjee – Angana Chatterjee is a Hindu herself and started in an association named after India’s avatar, a great defender of Hindus, Sri Aurobindo. You need to know that she is married to Richard Shapiro who is Director and Associate Professor of the graduate anthropology program at California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS), also a very anti-Hindu body. In fact, Shapiro was barred from entering India in 2010. Angana and Richard are great defenders of the Kashmiri Muslims and attend every International Kashmir Freedom Conference (IKFC), which only gives the Muslim point of view and ignores the 450,000 Kashmiri Hindus who have become refugees in their own country.

Teesta Setalvad – Teesta is a Hindu herself, who like Barkha Dutt, is married to a Muslim, Javed Anand. Javed Anand is General Secretary of Muslims for Secular Democracy, a virulent anti-Hindu organization. Using her organization Teesta Setalvad’s name has come to symbolize everything that is wrong with NGO activism in India. She has used any means to go after Hindus, particularly their leaders and specially Mr Narenda Modi. Unfortunately, Teesta has been repeatedly exposed for having indulged in unethical acts and has cases pending against her in courts for perjury. She has taken the courts for a ride with her perjury and her acts of influencing witnesses. She has misused the lack of education and poverty of victims to file false affidavits to further her own agenda.

Aurangzeb – Aurangzeb harmed not only Hindus, but also to his own family: he beheaded his brother Dara Shikoh, who was the rightful heir to the throne, poisoned his own father, and imprisoned his son. Aurangzeb (1658-1707) did not just build an isolated mosque on a destroyed temple, he ordered all the temples to be destroyed, among them the Kashi Vishwanath, Krishna’s birth temple in Mathura, the rebuilt Somnath temple on the coast of Gujurat, the Vishnu temple replaced with the Alamgir mosque now overlooking Benares and the Treta-ka-Thakur temple in Ayodhya. … His evil reign might end only after Shivaji Maharaj, a true Hindu hero brought him to his knees. Yet Shivaji is treated as a nobody in Indian history books and Aurangzeb like a harsh but just emperor.

John Dayal – The most virulent and articulate Christian anti-Hindu, John and many other Indian Christian leaders and bishops are not only practicing a Christianity which had its place 50 years ago in Europe (but is no more today, as Western Christianity is evolving), but are also re-embracing the old colonial missionary concept that Christ is the only ‘true’ God and that all ‘heathens’ Hindus have to be converted.

Irfan Habib – Irfan Habib has been side-lined by the Modi Government. He and Romila Thapar ruled supreme for nearly 40 years in devising Indian school curriculum. Together they have falsified Indian history with total impunity and went after the Hindus full steam. Irfan Habib continued the legacy of his father, Mohamed Habiib, to rewrite the chapter of Muslim invasions in India. Habib father and son’s books are based on four theories: 1) that the records (written by the Muslims themselves) of slaughters of Hindus, the enslaving of their women and children and razing of temples were “mere exaggerations by court poets and zealous chroniclers to please their rulers”. 2) That there were indeed atrocities, but mainly committed by Turks, the savage riders from the Steppe. 3) That the destruction of the temples took place because Hindus stored their gold and jewels inside them and therefore Muslim armies plundered these. 4) That the conversion of millions of Hindus to Islam was not forced, “but what happened was there was a shift of opinion in the population, who on its own free will chose the Shariat against the Hindu law (Smriti), as they were all oppressed by the bad Brahmins”!

Ramachandra Guha – Outlook magazine’s favourite columnist, who likes Rahul Gandhi, recently said that “Hindu fundamentalism is more threatening than Islamic terrorism”. Guha has written a number of books targeting Hindus and their spiritual leaders. Unfortunately, as many of these leftist intellectuals, he is fairly popular in the West and often quoted by western correspondents based in India.

Romila Thapar – The most well-known Indian historian, who has links with all Indologists in the world, universities and India centers, is a Hindu. As Rajiv Malhotra writes: “Hindu spiritual experiences are devalued by Romila Thapar, as pathological. She resorts to a quasi-scholarly speculation of racial hatred as existing in entire Indian traditions, demonizing the ‘other’, a technique to justify holding such people in contempt and even attacking them”. This is exactly the same thesis that is being spread today by Maoist insurgents working among remote tribes in central India, namely, that demons mentioned in Hinduism are actually references to tribal people. Today even, most of the intellectuals, journalists and many of India’s elite have been influenced by that school of thinking and regularly ape its theories.

N. Ram & The Hindu newspaper – Long time editor of the newspaper The Hindu, who should be renamed “The Anti-Hindu”. The magazine of The Hindu, Frontline, although well written as The Hindu, perpetuates a dead ideology. Unfortunately The Hindu is still read by many in India, including westerners in the South of India.

Sagarika Ghose & CNN-IBN – Rajdeep Sardesai’s wife shares her beliefs and hatred for the Hindus. It’s a tragedy that CNN-IBN is sympathetic to anybody who is anti-Hindu. CNN, a renowned western television station, choose to partner someone who is against the majority community of their country.

Mamata Banerjee – It is said that Mamata Banerjee is a Kali worshipper and does regular pujas when she is alone in her house. But the thrust of getting votes can transform anyone. She thus panders to Muslim community, turning a blind eye to the atrocities committed on the Hindus by the Bangladeshis refugees, who are given ration cards so that they can vote for Mamata. Also, she chose to say ‘Allah O Akbar’ when she just got re-elected despite of knowing the fact that Hindus are becoming minorities in certain districts of WB, Assam or UP. That is a tragedy and something should be done.

Akbaruddin Owaisi – Proof that India is a democracy lies in the fact that people like Owaisi and his brother can not only rant against the Hindus and preach near secession, but also get elected. There has to be some limits to preaching hatred and separatism.

Geelani & Other Kashmiri Separatists – It is confounding to see that the Indian Government allow these separatists to openly visit the Pakistani embassy in Delhi or travel to Pakistan. No country tolerates that kind of open separatism, be it France with Corsica, or even England with the faraway Falkland Islands, which geographically belong to Argentina. Also, one cannot forget that the Muslims pushed out of the Valley of Kashmir 500.000 Hindus who had lived there for generations.

Zakir Naik – Zakir Naik tried to hurt religious sentiments of Hindus by denigrating Shri Ganesh; that too, during the Ganesh Festival. He gave Hindus a challenge, through the medium of Facebook and Youtube, to prove that Shri Ganapati is a Deity. He also made an anti-Hindu statement that “If your God is unable to recognise his own son, how will he know that I am in danger”. By making such comments Naik has hurt religious sentiments of billions of Hindus. It has also created rage among members of Shiv Sena, BJP and various pro-Hindu organisations, Ganeshotsava Mandals and devout Hindus. Naik also went after Sri Sri Ravi Shankar in the famous debate.

Christophe Jaffrelot – This most famous French Indologist, paid by the French Government, is most responsible for the bad image of the BJP in France. He wrote many offensive books on ‘Hindu fundamentalism’. He is feted by the press corps and gets all kind of laudatory reviews when he comes to Indian to release the English translations of his books. So much for secularism in India—Jaffrelot, Sanjay Subramanyam (who teaches in the prestigious College de France), and others in France—keep harping on India’s problems—castes, poverty, so-called Hindu fundamentalism, etc. I know for a fact that in France, it has an influence on the top bureaucrats and the politicians, as every time something important happens in India—elections, catastrophes, riots, etc, their slanted opinions are hunted by newspapers, radios and televisions.

NGO’s – NGO’s in India are most of the time anti-Hindus. 70% of them work on “woman empowerment”, or “uplifting” the villagers in tribal areas, which is good, but should be done in a neutral manner with friendliness to the Indian Government. It is nowadays fashionable in India to always highlight the downtrodden condition of Indian women and their underprivileged place in Indian society. But no country in the world has granted such an important place to women in its spirituality and social ethos. And even today, behind all appearances—arranged marriages, submission to men, preference of male children in some rural areas (but girls are loved in India like nowhere in the world)—it can be safely said that very often, from the poorest to the richest classes, women control—even if behind the scenes—a lot of the family affairs: the education of their children (men in India are often “mama’s boys”), monetary concerns, and husbands often refer to them for important decisions. Countries such as France or the United States, who are often preaching to India on “women’s rights” never had a woman as their top leader, whereas India had Indira Gandhi ruling with an iron hand for nearly twenty years; and proportionately they have less MP’s than India, which is considering earmarking 33% of seats in Parliament for women, a revolution in human history! But this obsession of NGO’s with women and village empowerment (usually they take one village and make it like a showcase, for the benefit of visiting donors from abroad) has completely eclipsed the burning issue that would require NGO’s attention with the tremendous amount of funds they attract from abroad: afforestation, as there are hardly any forest worth the name left today in India.

Karunanidhi – Karunanidhi and before him his mentor, Anna, exploited to the hilt the Dravidian theory. According to this theory, which was actually devised in the 18th and 19th century by British linguists and archaeologists, who had a vested interest to prove the supremacy of their culture over the one of the subcontinent, the first inhabitants of India were good-natured, peaceful, dark-skinned shepherds, called the Dravidians. Then, around 1500 B.C., India is said to have been invaded by tribes called the Aryans: white-skinned, nomadic people, who originated somewhere in Urals, or the Caucasus. To the Aryans are attributed Sanskrit the Vedic or Hindu religion, India’s greatest spiritual texts, the Vedas, as well as a host of subsequent writings, the Upanishads, the Mahabharata, the Ramanaya, etc. And thus English missionaries and, later, American preachers were able to convert tribes and low caste Hindus by telling them: “you, the aborigines, the tribals, the Harijans, were there in India before the Aryans; you are the original inhabitants of India, and you should discard Hinduism, the religion of these arrogant Aryans and embrace Christianity, the true religion”. Karunanidhi also exploits this theory and he and Anna have made life for Tamil Brahmins so miserable that many left Tamil Nadu for Delhi or even the US.

Wendy Doniger – This American Hindu hater, supposedly a historian, says that Rama thinks that sex is putting him in political danger (keeping his allegedly unchaste wife will make the people revolt), but in fact he has it backward: Politics is driving Rama to make a sexual and religious mistake; public concerns make him banish the wife he loves. Rama banishes Sita as Dasharatha has banished Rama. Significantly, the moment when Rama kicks Sita out for the second time comes directly after a long passage in which Rama makes love to Sita passionately, drinking wine with her, for many days on end; the banishment comes as a direct reaction against the sensual indulgence. Her latest book, The Hindus: An Alternative History was written with an intent to mock Hinduism.

Akbar – Akbar is one of the goody-goodies in Indian history books, like Ashoka because he was a Buddhist, that Marxist historians like to glorify. No doubt, Akbar was one of the better Mughal emperors, but few people know that when he captured Chittor on February 25, 1568, he ordered that the thirty thousand civil population be butchered, including women and children who had taken shelter in the fort. Destruction of temples also took place on mass scale in Akbar’s reign and it is even said that he ordered that a mountain be made of the tufts of the Brahmins’ hairs.

Michael Witzel – He is a professor of Sanskrit at Harvard, who recently tried to prevent the removal of references to India and Hinduism in the curriculum followed by schools in California which parents of Indian origin found to be inadequate, inaccurate or just outright insensitive. Known for aggressively pushing theories forged by Left historians of the Romila Thapar genre that have been long discredited through scientific means, including DNA studies, this ‘linguist’ is known for promoting himself as a ‘historian’ in academic circles. His proximity to Left historians in India is no secret. On one occasion, he even said, “Hindus in the US are lost or abandoned people”.

Amnesty International – Amnesty International, which has a large number of Pakistanis in its staff, has always been hostile to Hindus. I remember showing an exhibition on Kashmir in London at the prestigious Commonwealth Club. The South Asia Amnesty in-charge refused to come and see it—although the club was just a stone throw away from Amnesty’s London office. What did the Kashmiri Hindus do that Amnesty considers them untouchable? And how come that the Muslims of the Valley who chased them by terror and made them flee their ancestral lands and homes are not condemned by Amnesty? It triggers a lot of questions about Amnesty’s impartiality.

Prannoy Roy (CEO of NDTV) – No doubt, Prannoy Roy created one of the best TV channels in India in terms of content and professional quality, but from the beginning NDTV’s slant was anti-Hindu. Why? Did you know that Prannoy is married to Radhika Roy, who is the sister of Brinda Karat, one of the leading lights of the Communist Party of India Marxist (CPI(M))? The sad thing is that many BJP leaders always run to NDTV, to be crucified by Barkha Dutt, Pranno’s second in command today.

P. Chidambaram – There are many questions asked today about the role of P. Chidambaram when he was in power during the ten years of the Congress. As finance minister, he went after Hindus by clamping down on Hindu institutions that had the 100% yoga tax rebate; as home minister his role is even more dubious: he had cleared an affidavit in 2009 which described college student Ishrat Jahan as a Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorist involved in a plot to assassinate then Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi. About a month later, a second affidavit was filed in court in which all references to Ishrat’s alleged terror links were missing.

Sitaram Yechury – Yechury is an intelligent man and a brilliant speaker but he went full steam against Mr Modi’s declaration of June 21 as International Yoga Day, which was supported by the UN General Assembly and which should not cause any problem, as yoga is a universal technique that is practiced all over the world by millions of Christians. Oh, but the hitch is that yoga is a Hindu invention, hence Mr Yechury’s hostility, who famously said: “under this BJP government’s aggressive global campaigns, India appears to be seeking a global positioning not on the basis of its internal strength, economic or otherwise, but on the basis of such ‘accomplishments’ as having the UN General Assembly declare International Yoga Day on June 21”. The fact that a senior communist leader in India fails to see the potential to leverage the acceptance and spread of yoga across the world as a means to further India’s global influence and power is a testament to the monumental intellectual bankruptcy afflicting the communists in India.

Mother Teresa – Mother Teresa is still the fallacy for India. No doubt, she did saintly work. But was caring for the dying and orphaned children her only goal? The truth is that she stood for the most orthodox Christian conservatism. There is no doubt that Mother Teresa also had a goal to convert Hindus to Christianity, the only true religion in her eyes.

Karan Thapar– Karan Thapar, who owns ITV, which unfortunately produces shows for BBC, is one of the most famous faces of journalism in India. Karan Thapar’s father was General Pran Nath Thapar COAS during 1962 war, and his aunt is Romila Thapar. Does that explain why Karan, though a decent man, is known for his anti-Hindu bias? Once he invited me on a program about the painter M. F. Husain, who as you know has depicted Hindus’ most revered Gods fornicating or even sodomizing each other. I had brought on the show photocopies of these paintings, a solid evidence of Husain’s hatred of Hinduism, but Karan refused that I showed them on camera. So much for ITV’s journalistic impartiality.

Javed Akhtar – Though Javed Akhtar came out recently against those who opposed saying “Bharat Mata ki Jai”, he is also known as a Hindu baiter. I remember him going full steam against Sri Sri Ravi Shankar and Hindu gurus in an India Today symposium a few years ago. Akhtar also repeatedly equated the Gujarat 2002 anti-Muslim riots to the Jewish holocaust. As one of his detractors said: “it is impossible to believe that Akhtar isn’t aware of the horrors at Auschwitz or Sobibor to compare them with rioting in Gujarat”.

Shabana Azmi – Akhtar’s second wife, Shabana Azmi is a fine actress. Nevertheless she is also a Hindu baiter. When she was invited to the international film festival of Deauville in France, I read the numerous interviews where she kept harping about “Hindu fundamentalists”, and repeatedly lambasted the “right wing” BJP Government and accused them of turning a “blind eye” to the attacks towards India’s minorities, while portraying herself as a courageous social activist fighting for freedom of expression. She also only spoke en passant about Muslim fundamentalism. Again the old trick to either equate Muslim and Hindu fundamentalism, or even in the case of Azmi, Rahul Gandhi and others, to say that Hindu fundamentalism is more dangerous than the Islamic one.

Aakar Patel – Aakar Patel, a subtle but redoubtable Hindu hater, is sadly the head of Amnesty International India (one can see there the perversion of Amnesty, to name a Muslim as its head in a country inhabited by 80% Hindus). Aakar indeed always rants against Narendra Modi and the Hindu majority, saying: “one must be neutral.” But “we dissent against our own country, because dissent is patriotic”. However he adds: “Anyone opposing us (Amnesty International?, is morally deficient and a repugnant human being”. Aakar Patel’s hatred for the majority community is not veiled. He wrote, “Most extremists in India are not Muslims, they are Hindu Maoists”.

Arundhati Roy – Cousin of Prannoy Roy, she was married to Gerard da Cunha first and then to filmmaker Pradip Krishen. Apart from her first book The God of Small Things, Arundhati never wrote again anything of value. She is most happy in the company of Maoists, Naxalites, Tamil Elam [LTTE], and Kashmiri separatists. Roy famously said, “Kashmir has never been an integral part of India and the Indian Government is at war with Maoists to aid the MNCs”. She also says that Modi is promoting Brahmanism. After the “intolerance” debate, she returned her national award for screenplay.

Father Cedric Prakash – This Indian Christian priest has been most active in betraying his own country in the US, amongst Congress parliamentary committees. In June 2002, he testified before the US Commission for International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) in Washington, about the lack of religious freedom in India. His is a clear case of an Indian citizen asking an alien nation intervene in India’s domestic affairs. Fr. Prakash has been a vocal critic of Narendra Modi, often in collaboration with John Dayal and Teesta Setalvad.

Martha Nussbaum – Her pronouncement: “perpetrators of violence are not Muslims but Hindus”, is proof enough of Nussbaum’s hatred. Her interest in India started while working for Amartya Sen, with whom she shared an intimate relationship, a fact she herself bragged about. Before the 2014 parliament elections, Amartya Sen had said that he wouldn’t like Modi to be the PM of India. Martha does not have any qualification or training in archaeology, Sanskrit, geology,or metallurgy, yet writes with authority about the dating of the Vedas.

Hillary Clinton – Hillary Clinton has no great love for India and often leans towards Pakistan (her vice chairman of the 2016 election campaign is Huma Mahmood Abedin, of Pakistani origin). Maybe the numerous infidelities of her husband Bill made her into a hard and cynical woman, but if she becomes president of the US, she will be no friend of India and Hindus. Her attitude towards Islam and Muslim fundamentalism is also ambiguous and she is probably closer to Obama’s views, than any other presidential candidate. You can expect continuing support, financial and in armaments to Pakistan if she is elected.

Medha Patkar – Another NGO, who very selectively targets only Hindus. Her Narmada dam agitation had one target only—Narendra Modi. Yet the dam has proved to be the biggest factor to Gujarat’s prosperity, bringing electricity, water, prosperity to all, Hindus as well as Muslims. Medha was also involved in many movements that blocked Mr Modi’s visas in the UK and the US and that tried to stop him from becoming prime minister.

Mahatma Gandh i? – I put it with a question mark, as I consider him as a great soul indeed. But there are many who point out that he never seemed to have realised the great danger that Nazism represented for humanity. Calling Hitler “my beloved brother”, a man who murdered 6 million Jews in cold-blood just to prove the purity of his own race, is more than just innocence, it borders on criminal credulity. And did not Gandhi also advise the Jews to let themselves be butchered? His not condemning Muslims during the Khilafat Movement when thousands of Hindus were butchered by Indian Muslims, or his indulgence of Jinnah, going as far as proposing to make him the prime minister of India, have not always earned him Hindu goodwill. ¶ Gandhi’s love of the Harijans, as he called them, was certainly very touching and sprang from the highest motivations, but once more Gandhi took the European element in the decrying of the caste system, sowing the seeds of future disorders and of a caste war in India, of which we see the effects only today.

Hindus Themselves – Hindus, it must be said, are their own biggest enemies. They must be some of the most selfish and individualistic people in the world: rich Hindus never help their poorer brothers and sisters—that’s’ why the Mother Teresas and Sonia Gandhis are able to flourish in India. A Hindu abroad never acknowledges another Hindu, but pretends he or she does not exist. You can insult Hindus and their Gods and Goddesses as much as you want and nothing will happen to you. A billion Hindus have not raised a finger about the 450.000 Kashmiri Pandits who became refugees in their own country after they were chased out by terror from the Valley of Kashmir in the 90’s. Hindus today don’t give a damn whether their children know about the Ramayana, the Mahabharata or the Bhagavad Gita, where every truth that needs to be known about life, after life, karma, dharma and soul is taught. Modern Hindu children do not go to temples, pray or know what a puja is. Hindus do not care to have colleges where Hindu values are imparted, like the Muslims have (Aligarh University for instance) The only one ever, the Benares Hindu University, should not be called ‘Hindu’, as nothing Hindu is taught there anymore.

Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, who along with a few hundred men, stood his ground against the most powerful emperor of his times, has practically no place in Indian history books and is often described as a petty chieftain or even a plunderer. So is Maharana Pratap, the only Rajput who fought against the Mughals and actually defeated Akbar in Haldighati.

Hindus tend to merge and melt wherever they live—and in the process, lose some of their identities and togetherness. And finally the most deadly and vicious intellectuals that we have reviewed above, are Hindus most of them. They are the ones that should be targeted, in a non-violent but firm manner. – Francois Gautier, 13 June 2016.

Recently, I ran into a certified Commie of the "The Hindu" variety. Heard the usual blah blah. However, was surprised that despite being a commie, is quite casteist and maintains private worship and rituals (was apologetic by saying that he still offers worship and has a puja altar at home) This is not the first time that I have come across such commies, not sure if they realise the contradictions. Have anyone met similar characters? Any insights as to what goes in their mind? Sorry if this is not the right thread.

‘How troublesome are these Sadhus, just burn and kill them’: Mob in Haryana’s Mewat attacks Mahant Ramdas of Muktidham Ashram

https://www.opindia.com/2020/04/mewat-s ... am-ashram/
When Mahant Ramdas went to the police to file an FIR, the police refused. When OpIndia reached out to the police, Punhana Thana SHO directed us to talk to the headquarters regarding the case. He also claimed that no such incident has taken place. The Hindu organisations are saying that the police are trying to avoid filing an FIR and getting Mahant Ramdas and the accused to talk over it and sort it out.

why I am criticizing sangh?

like congress got chance to change our future back in 1947, sangh also got chance to change our country's future right now. congress back then, didn't disturb the status quo and followed the same british model well past independence. now sangh will also follow same footsteps and doom us to another century.

One word: compartmentalization. I know many people like this, 9/10 times the reason is ₹. Modiji na khaate hain na khane dete hain.

PM Modi's popularity soars amid India's Covid fight
ImageImage
NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi's response to the country's surging coronavirus epidemic may help him walk away unscathed from a host of political and economic problems that hounded his government just months ago.
His approval rating on April 21 was 83%, up from 76% on January 7, according to Morning Consult, a US-based survey and research firm. A separate survey, the IANS-CVoter Covid-19 tracker also showed that trust in his leadership jumped to 93.5% as of April 21 from 76.8% on March 25.

Sirji
For Long time the Commies have allowed their cadres to practice 'Religion of Love' and 'Religion of Peace'!!!
Now that the BJP/NaMo/Hindu resurgence, they have no other way to combat this sense of partiality amongst the cadres!! so allow at home private pujas etc!!
Wait until one of their top wigs takes flight to 'Meet Lenin/Marx/Mao' they will organise private cremation per Vedic rights and then and call it family's will :lol: :lol:
If U cant fight them then 'Join Them' is the mantra I suppose :rotfl: :rotfl:

Agasthi ji, the vast majority of aam left supporters have always been like any other hindu, left leaders helped organise some of the major Durga pujas in WB.
The left ideology and on ground reality were quite far apart.
Interestingly, every major puja pandal would have a leftist book stall on the way in.

This used to be the case. But not anymore. The appeasement politics ruined it completely. Same with the old Congress and the New one. Opposite sides of the spectrum. A large number of cadres are leaving for the same reason.

Even Naxals used to respect temples etc. But not anymore. They are totally gone anti Hindu mode.
