Taj Mahal: The Hidden Truth

This is a BBC article exposing facts suppressed from the people of India by the "secular" (anti-Hindu) Governments of the Congress and Left parties.

A noted Western historian had written a definitive history book full of irrefutable historical facts that prove beyond a shadow of doubt that the Taj Mahal was a Hindu temple of Lord Shiva that was desecrated and converted into a tomb for his wife by Radical Islamist Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan.

The book was banned in India by the "secular" Governments. Now the Internet is making it impossible to keep the Truth hidden away.

How will our anti-Hindu Muslim-vote-banking UPA Government keep the Truth suppressed this time ? Will they block access to blogs and other websites again like they did a few months ago ?

The Taj's Other Story

If you have ever visited the Taj Mahal then your guide probably told you that it was designed by Ustad Isa of Iran, and built by the Moghul Emperor, Shah Jahan, in memory of his wife Mumtaz Mahal. Indian children are taught that it was built in 22 years (1631 to 1653) by 20,000 artisans brought to India from all over the world.

This story has been challenged by Professor P.N. Oak, author of Taj Mahal: The True Story, who believes that the whole world has been duped. He claims that the Taj Mahal is not Queen Mumtaz Mahal's tomb, but an ancient Hindu temple palace of Lord Shiva (then known as Tejo Mahalaya), worshipped by the Rajputs of Agra city.

In the course of his research, Oak discovered that the Shiva temple palace had been usurped by Shah Jahan from then Maharaja of Jaipur, Jai Singh. Shah Jahan then remodelled the palace into his wife's memorial. In his own court chronicle, Badshahnama, Shah Jahan admits that an exceptionally beautiful grand mansion in Agra was taken from Jai Singh for Mumtaz's burial. The ex-Maharaja of Jaipur is said to retain in his secret collection two orders from Shah Jahan for the surrender of the Taj building.

The use of captured temples and mansions as a burial place for dead courtiers and royalty was a common practice among Muslim rulers. For example, Hamayun, Akbar, Etmud-ud-Daula and Safdarjung are all buried in such mansions.

Oak's inquiries begin with the name Taj Mahal. He says this term does not occur in any Moghul court papers or chronicles, even after Shah Jahan's time. The term 'Mahal' has never been used for a building in any of the Muslim countries, from Afghanistan to Algeria.

'The usual explanation that the term Taj Mahal derives from Mumtaz Mahal is illogical in at least two respects. Firstly, her name was never Mumtaz Mahal but Mumtaz-ul-Zamani,' he writes. 'Secondly, one cannot omit the first three letters from a woman's name to derive the remainder as the name for the building.'

Taj Mahal is, he claims, a corrupt version of Tejo-mahalaya, or the Shiva's Palace. Oak also says that the love story of Mumtaz and Shah Jahan is a fairy tale created by court sycophants, blundering historians and sloppy archaeologists. Not a single royal chronicle of Shah Jahan's time corroborates the love story.

Furthermore, Oak cites several documents suggesting that the Taj Mahal predates Shah Jahan's era:

1. Professor Marvin Miller of New York took samples from the riverside doorway of the Taj. Carbon dating tests revealed that the door was 300 years older than Shah Jahan.

2. European traveller Johan Albert Mandelslo, who visited Agra in 1638 (only seven years after Mumtaz's death), describes the life of the city in his memoirs, but makes no reference to the Taj Mahal being built.

3. The writings of Peter Mundy, an English visitor to Agra within a year of Mumtaz's death, also suggest that the Taj was a noteworthy building long well before Shah Jahan's time.

Oak also points out a number of design and architectural inconsistencies that support the belief that the Taj Mahal is a typical Hindu temple rather than a mausoleum.

Many rooms in the Taj Mahal have remained sealed since Shah Jahan's time, and are still inaccessible to the public. Oak asserts they contain a headless statue of Shiva and other objects commonly used for worship rituals in Hindu temples.

Fearing political backlash, Indira Gandhi's government tried to have Oak's book withdrawn from the bookstores, and threatened the Indian publisher of the first edition with dire consequences.

The only way to really validate or discredit Oak's research is to open the sealed rooms of the Taj Mahal, and allow international experts to investigate.

Exhibition of documents concerning Aurangzeb's genocide of Hindus

I am grateful to the Anonymous dear reader who brought this to my attention. This is an excellent article by Francois Gautier about the exhibition he is organizing about the genocidal activities of the Radical Islamic genocidal tyrant Aurangzeb.

The evidence irrefutably disproves the lies propagated by the Leftist anti-Hindu historians like Romila Thapar, Arjun Dev, etc who have so far tried very hard to suppress the truth about the Hindu Holocaust: the massive-scale genocide of Hindus Buddhists Jains and Sikhs carried out by brutal Radical Islamic maniacs who ruled over India for a thousand years.

People like Romila Thapar and Arjun Dev have written these lies in the NCERT history textbooks read by millions of schoolkids all over India. Lies cannot be used for any good purpose. The truth must come out. And Romila Thapar and her gang of anti-Hindu liars must pay for their criminal dishonesty and fabrication of "facts" used to mislead and hide the truth from entire generations of Indians.

The truth about Aurangzeb
By Francois Gautier
February 16, 2007

FACT, the Trust which I head, is holding an exhibition on 'Aurangzeb as he was according to Mughal documents', from February 16 to 20 at New Delhi's Habitat Center, the Palm Court Gallery, from 10 am to 9 pm.

Why an exhibition on Aurangzeb, some may ask. Firstly, I have been a close student of Indian history, and one of its most controversial figures has been Aurangzeb (1658-1707). It is true that under him the Mughal empire reached its zenith, but Aurangzeb was also a very cruel ruler � some might even say monstrous.

What are the facts? Aurangzeb did not just build an isolated mosque on a destroyed temple, he ordered all temples destroyed, among them the Kashi Vishwanath temple, one of the most sacred places of Hinduism, and had mosques built on a number of cleared temple sites. Other Hindu sacred places within his reach equally suffered destruction, with mosques built on them. A few examples: Krishna's birth temple in Mathura; the rebuilt Somnath temple on the coast of Gujarat; the Vishnu temple replaced with the Alamgir mosque now overlooking Benares; and the Treta-ka-Thakur temple in Ayodhya. The number of temples destroyed by Aurangzeb is counted in four, if not five figures. Aurangzeb did not stop at destroying temples, their users were also wiped out; even his own brother Dara Shikoh was executed for taking an interest in Hindu religion; Sikh Guru Tegh Bahadur was beheaded because he objected to Aurangzeb's forced conversions.

Yet, Percival Spear, co-author with Romila Thapar of the prestigious A History of India (Penguin), writes: 'Aurangzeb's supposed intolerance is little more than a hostile legend based on isolated acts such as the erection of a mosque on a temple site in Benares.' L'histoire de l'Inde moderne (Fayard), the French equivalent of Percival Spear's history of India, praises Aurangzeb and says, 'He has been maligned by Hindu fundamentalists'. Even Indian politicians are ignorant of Aurangzeb's evil deeds. Nehru might have known about them, but for his own reasons he chose to keep quiet and instructed his historians to downplay Aurangzeb's destructive drive and instead praise him as a benefactor of arts.

Since then six generations of Marxist historians have done the same and betrayed their allegiance to truth. Very few people know for instance that Aurangzeb banned any kind of music and that painters had to flee his wrath and take refuge with some of Rajasthan's friendly maharajahs.

Thus, we thought we should get at the root of the matter. History (like journalism) is about documentation and first-hand experience. We decided to show Aurangzeb according to his own documents. There are an incredible number of farhans, original edicts of Aurangzeb hand-written in Persian, in India's museums, particularly in Rajasthan, such as the Bikaner archives. It was not always easy to scan them, we encountered resistance, sometimes downright hostility and we had to go once to the chief minister to get permission. Indeed, the director of Bikaner archives told us that in 50 years we were the first ones asking for the farhans dealing with Aurangzeb's destructive deeds. Then we asked painters from Rajasthan to reproduce in the ancient Mughal style some of the edicts: the destruction of Somnath temple; the trampling of Hindus protesting jaziya tax by Aurangzeb's elephants; or the order from Aurangzeb prohibiting Hindus to ride horses and palanquins; or the beheading of Teg Bahadur and Dara Shikoh.

People might say: 'OK, this is all true, Aurangzeb was indeed a monster, but why rake up the past, when we have tensions between Muslims and Hindus today?' There are two reasons for this exhibition. The first is that no nation can move forward unless its children are taught to look squarely at their own history, the good and the bad, the evil and the pure. The French, for instance, have many dark periods in their history, more recently some of the deeds they did during colonisation in North Africa or how they collaborated with the Nazis during the Second World War and handed over French Jews who died in concentration camps (the French are only now coming to terms with it).

The argument that looking at one's history will pit a community against the other does not hold either: French Catholics and Protestants, who share a very similar religion, fought each other bitterly. Catholics brutally murdered thousands of Protestants in the 18th century; yet today they live peacefully next to each other. France fought three wars with Germany in the last 150 years, yet they are great friends today.

Let Hindus and Muslims then come to terms with what happened under Aurangzeb, because Muslims suffered as much as Hindus. It was not only Shah Jahan or Dara Shikoh who were murdered, but also the forefathers of today's Indian Muslims who have been converted at 90 per cent. Aurangzeb was the Hitler, the asura of medieval India. No street is named after Hitler in the West, yet in New Delhi we have Aurangzeb Road, a constant reminder of the horrors Aurangzeb perpetrated against Indians, including his own people.

Finally, Aurangzeb is very relevant today because he thought that Sunni Islam was the purest form of his religion and he sought to impose it with ruthless efficiency -- even against those of his own faith, such as his brother. Aurangzeb clamped down on the more syncretic, more tolerant Islam, of the Sufi kind, which then existed in India. But he did not fully succeed. Four centuries later, is he going to have the last word? I remember, when I started covering Kashmir in the late '70s, that Islam had a much more open face. The Kashmir Muslim, who is also a descendant of converted Hindus, might have thought that Allah was the only true God, but he accepted his Kashmiri Pandit neighbour, went to his or her marriage, ate in his or her house and the Hindu in turn went to the mosque. Women used to walk with open faces, watch TV, films.

Then the shadow of Aurangzeb fell on Kashmir and the hardline Sunnis came from Pakistan and Afghanistan: cinemas were banned, the burqa imposed, 400,000 Kashmiri Pandits were chased out of Kashmir through violence and became refugees in their own land and the last Sufi shrine of Sharar-e-Sharif was burnt to the ground (I was there). Today the Shariat has been voted in Kashmir, a state of democratic, secular India, UP's Muslims have applauded, and the entire Indian media which went up in flames when the government wanted Vande Mataram to be sung, kept quiet. The spirit of Aurangzeb seems to triumph.

But what we need today in India -- and indeed in the world -- is a Dara Shikoh, who reintroduces an Islam which, while believing in the supremacy of its Prophet, not only accepts other faiths, but is also able to see the good in each religion, study them, maybe create a synthesis. Islam needs to adapt its scriptures which were created nearly 15 centuries ago for the people and customs of these times, but which are not necessarily relevant in some of their injunctions today. Kabir, Dara Shikoh and some of the Sufi saints attempted this task, but failed. Aurangzeb knew what he was doing when he had his own brother beheaded. And we know what we are saying when we say that this exhibition is very relevant to today's India.

May the Spirit of Dara Shikoh come back to India and bring back Islam to a more tolerant human face.

US judge recommends Yoga and Meditation

This is a very informative article on Yoga and Meditation written by a dear reader Shri M. P. Bhattathiri, Retired Chief Technical Examiner, Government of Kerala, published with thanks.

Let me bow to Indian Maharishi Patanjali with folded hands who helped in removing the impurities of the mind through his writings on Yoga, impurities of speech through his writings on grammer, and impurities of body through his writings on Ayurveda.

The US Judiciary has recently approved the power of yoga and meditation vide a recent judgement in the American court. "Man Who Slapped Wife Sentenced to Yoga, It's Anger Management, Says Judge." First there was house arrest. Now there's yoga. A judge ordered a man convicted of slapping his wife to take a yoga class as part of his one-year probation. "It's part of anger management," County Criminal Court at Law Judge Larry Standley said of the ancient Hindu philosophy of exercise and well-being. "For people who are into it, it really calms them down."

Standley, a former prosecutor, said the case of James Lee Cross was unique. Cross, a 53-year-old car salesman from Tomball, explained that his wife was struggling with a substance abuse problem and that he struck her on New Year's Eve during an argument about her drinking. "He was trying to get a hold of her because she has a problem," Standley said after the court hearing. "I thought this would help him realize that he only has control over himself." The sentence came as a surprise to Cross, who was told to enroll in a class and report back to Standley on his progress. "I'm not very familiar with it," Cross said of yoga. "From what I understand, it may help in a couple ways, not only as far as mentally settling, but maybe a little weight loss." Darla Magee, an instructor at Yoga Body Houston in River Oaks, said she would recommend that Cross take a basic yoga class emphasizing breathing and including a variety of postures -- forward bends, back bends and twists. "Yoga can help us to get rid of many emotional issues we might have," she said. "It's a spiritual cleanse." Prosecutor Lincoln Goodwin agreed to a sentence of probation without jail time because Cross had no significant criminal history.

Yoga which is one of the greatest Indian contribution to the world has got vast potential in all fields. In Tihar jail India Yoga is experimented among the inmates and found successful. Their criminal mentality is changed. This study aimed at investigating the effect of Vipassana Meditation (VM) on Quality of Life (QOL), Subjective Well-Being (SWB), and Criminal Propensity (CP) among inmates of Tihar Jail, Delhi. To this effect the following hypotheses were formulated.

1. There will be a significant positive effect of VM on the QOL of inmates of Tihar jail.

2. VM will have a positive and significant effect on SWB of inmates.

3. Criminal propensity (CP) of inmates will decrease significantly after attending the VM course.

4. There will be significant difference in SWB and CP of experimental (Vipassana) group and control (non-Vipassana) group.

5. Male and female inmates will differ significantly in SWB and CP, as a result of VM.

In the famous "Time" magazine the importance meditation and yoga, an ancient Indian system, is high-lighted that the ancient mind- and spirit-enhancing art is becoming increasingly popular and gaining medical legitimacy. It is a multi billion dollar business in US. In many Universities it is accepted as subject and included in the Syllabus. In the latest famous book "Inspire! What Great Leaders Do" written by Mr. Lance Secretan recently published by John Wiley and Sons, the benefit of meditation is elaborately described for good corporate governance. By practising transcendental meditation, or TM, many people have got relief from back pain, neck pain, depression. The mind calms and quiets, . What thoughts you have during meditation become clearer, more focused. Anger, anxiety and worries give way to a peace. In the world exhorbitant medical expeneses one can definitely make use of meditation. Maharshi Mahesh Yogi and Sri Ravi Sankar are poplarising this. The Iyengar Yoga institute in the US is famous.

In Bhagavad Gita Lord Krishna has inspired Arjuna to rise from his depression by preaching Gita in the battlefield and to rise from the depression to do his duties. In Holy Gita we can see, being hidden by the cosmic overview of any institution beset with myriad problems, not the least of which is its lack of moral probity, there is a groundswell of educated people seeking answers to deeply personal but universally asked questions. Chie Executives taking lessons from yoga, meditation and learning how to deal with human resources equations in an enlightened manner. Individuals from every walk of life can get ideas of how to be better human beings, more balanced and less stressed out.

Medical studies continue to show regular meditation working magic in reducing blood pressure and stress-related illnesses, including heart disease. Brain images show that regular meditation helps calm the most active sensory-assaulted parts of the brain. The ancient Hindu sage Patanjali who had mastered the secrets of the human mind has written a book "Yogasutra".In this book we can see how super powers can be achieved by meditation. It has both cosmic relevance and cosmic resonance. In spite of its universal appeal, for most people total control of mind remains an elusive goal and daunting task. From time immemorial, there have been many attempts throughout the world to unlock the mysteries of the mind and to achieve total control over it through a variety of techniques. One of the most powerful of these techniques is meditation.

Many spiritual leaders, sages, saints, and holy people such asSri. Buddha, Sri Ramakrishna, Madam Sarada Devi, and Swami Vivekananda have practised this. One of the ways to control physiological reactions to psychological stimuli is meditation, Yoga, Zen Buddhism etc. The scientists take Transcendental Meditation (TM) as the uniform technique, and base their observations on the study of the subjects engaged in this form of meditation. In summing up the results the scientists have come to conclusion that the effect of meditation is a "wakeful, hypo-metabolic state". They have found that:

1) Yogis could slow both heart rate and rate of respiration

2) Yogis could slow the rate of metabolism as confirmed by decreased oxygen consumption and carbon-di-oxide output.

3) Electro-Encephalo-Gram (EEG - recording of brain activity) in Yogis showed changes of calmness in the form of "alpha rhythm" during both eyes closed and eyes open recordings.

4) Their skin resistance to electric stimulation was increased (indicating increased tolerance to external stimuli).

Our usual 'defence-alarm' reaction to emotional and physical stress is in the form of "fright, flight, and fight" mediated through over-secretion of certain neuro-transmitters and neuro-modulators, namely adrenaline and dopamine by way of stimulation of sympathetic nervous system. Under the influence of these chemicals and hormones, we reflexively become panicky or aggressive, our blood pressure rises. Thus stress and anxiety is the end result if we allow our natural age-old sympathetic reactions to act and to come to surface. We try to run away, become fearful, or fight the situation. But today these 'defence-alarm' reactions have no place in our lives. Rather, they should be replaced by more calm and serene reactions of equanimity and fearlessness. The need is to just 'face the brute, and it will go away'. Such desirable reactions of non-aggression and peaceful attitude are generated by Y ga and meditation. EEG Studies on Yogis and The Zen Meditations: Yogis practising Raja-Yoga claim that during the state of samadhi they are oblivious to the internal and external stimuli, and they enjoy a calm ecstasy during that state. A study was undertaken to record the electrical activity of their brain during this state by means of a regular and useful test known as electroencephalography EEG. Physiological and experimental studies have demonstrated that the basis of conscious state of brain, among other things, is due to activation of "reticular system" in the brain-stem in response to internal and external stimuli. These stimuli bring about various changes during sleeping and wakeful states of the organism and these can be studied by EEG. The study was carried out on four subjects during the state of concentration and meditation. Effects of external stimuli, like a loud gong, strong light, thermal simulation, and vibrations were studied. The results were compiled and analyzed. It was observed that two Yogis could keep their hands immersed in extremely cold water for about 50 minutes (raised pain threshold). During state of meditation, all of them showed persistent "alpha activity" in their EEG with increased amplitude wave pattern, both during 'eyes closed' and 'eyes open' recording. It was observed that these alpha activities could not be blocked by various sensory stimuli during meditation. It was also observed that those, who had well-marked "alpha activity" in their resting EEG showed greater aptitude and zeal for maintaining the practice of Yoga. Similar observations and results were obtained when EEGs were recorded in persons adept in Zen Meditative technique. Can we say that only those persons who exhibit such recording of "alpha wave rhythm" in their EEG are fit for Yoga? and be designated as right candidates for meditation and Yoga practices? (Such experiments are indeed very few and the number of yogis examined is also very small. Therefore, scientifically and statistically these observations have only a tentative importance. Further research is definitely called for, albeit it will have its own limitations.) It is said that in the unknown period of Lord Jesus Christ, He was under meditation.

Indians forgot about 7/11 attacks, so Islamic terror strikes again

I have said multiple times on this blog that the only reason we Indians are being attacked by Radical Islamic terrorists so many times, while USA UK and Spain were attacked only once (on 9/11, 7/7, and 3/11 respectively), is because we Indians keep forgetting about past attacks very soon after they occur. Our political leaders know that we will not punish the Government for failing to fulfill its most fundamental duty: protecting the life and property of ordinary citizens, and instead focusing on Casteist Divide and Rule politics aimed at dividing Hindus (like the OBC Reservations), and winning elections by trying to appease the Muslim vote bank.

India is the only country in the world that relaxed anti-terror laws (UPA Govt. got rid of the POTA law) while the rest of the world created stronger laws to fight Islamic terror (like the PATRIOT ACT of America).

What does that tell you about our Government's priorities ?

The BBC reports:
Dozens dead in India train blasts
Samjhauta Express
The fire engulfed two carriages on the Samjhauta Express
At least 64 people have been killed in a series of explosions and a fire on a Pakistan-bound train in the northern Indian state of Haryana, officials say.

Passengers reported hearing two blasts as the train passed near Panipat, about 80km (50 miles) north of Delhi.

The train - the Samjhauta Express - was part of a service taking passengers from Delhi to Lahore in Pakistan.

A spokesman for Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said the explosions were probably an "act of terror".

A number of other passengers were injured, and officials say the death toll may rise.

'Explosive devices'

The BBC's Navdip Dhariwal in Delhi says a series of small blasts took place in two carriages at about midnight (1830 GMT), as the train reached a station in the village of Deewana.

She says the train came to a standstill and a ball of fire engulfed the two coaches.

Map of India
The injured were pulled out of the burning carriages onto the trackside by fellow passengers, she adds.

"I heard a loud explosion and then it was all smoke," passenger Tara Chand was quoted by Reuters news agency as saying.

"Looking at the intensity of the smoke, many people must have suffocated to death before being charred."

Officials said many of the victims were Pakistanis but some were Indian security personnel.

Railway officials said five small explosive devices capable of causing a huge fire were defused at the site.

The Samjhauta Express is one of two train services connecting India and Pakistan.

After a two-year gap, it was reopened in 2004 as part of the peace process between the two countries.

Communists attack Rahul Dravid for performing Surya Namaskar

After a thousand years of slow destruction of Hinduism and Hindu culture and heritage, India has finally reached the final stage. Now Communists trying to prove their regard for "secularism" (defined as anti-Hinduism and Muslim-appeasement in the Indian context) are openly attacking people for performing non-religious Hindu activities like Surya Namaskar and other forms of Yoga.

Indian cricket team captain Rahul Dravid is being attacked by these anti-India anti-Democracy anti-Hindu Mao-worshipping Communists for participating in a Yoga camp organized by the RSS.

The Communists are calling the RSS "sectarian" and "fascist". This has been a long-standing trick employed by anti-Hindu elements in India: bad-mouth someone or something often enough for long enough, and the gullible common people of India will believe it. And most India, from the common man to public figures like Rahul Dravid or Amitabh Bachhchhan will be afraid to associate themselves with the RSS for fear of being labelled "fascist".

There isn't and has never been any evidence to support the commonly-used "fascist" charge against RSS. Going by real evidence, RSS is a peaceful volunteer organization focused on social service and charity. It is "fascist" only in the baseless dream-world the Communists live in.

Since 1947 these anti-Hindu elements have tried to destroy the RSS by banning it three times. Each time the RSS was found not-guilty of any and all charges by the Courts of India. If the Communists can prove the RSS "fascist" why don't they go to Court and get it banned once and for all ? They cannot because they know their charges are baseless and cannot be substantiated by even the flimsiest kind of evidence. So they are trying to destroy the RSS by bad-mouthing it day after day in public and trying to intimidate people like Rahul Dravid who want to take part in its altruistic social development activities.

By tying up with their anti-Hindu Christian missionary partners have also gotten the RSS labelled a "terrorist organization" by the Christian-dominated US Government. Why did the Us agree ? Because the RSS hinders the Christian missionary groups' "convert poor Hindus to Christianity by offering money an jobs" activities by helping poor Hindus in Indian villages get educated, get jobs, support themselves, and develop pride in their ancient Hindu cultural heritage by learning about it. Then, they no longer need the measly dollars of the American Christian evangelist priests, and they no longer want to join a backward unscientific irrational fairy-tale-full religion like Christianity by giving up the rational scientific thought-and-question-encouraging open-minded faith like Hinduism.

The anti-Hindu Communists are calling the RSS "fascist" but offering no reason, argument, or proof to support their absurd claims.

Who is fascist ? The volunteer group that organized Yoga lessons for poor villagers, or the un-democratic Mao-worshipping group of corrupt Leftist politicans that tries to intimidate everybody from joining the social service activities of the RSS by calling it "fascist" ?

You decide.

If you think the RSS is being targeted for peacefully working to prevent the continuing destruction of one of the few remaining enlightened religions on this planet -- Hinduism -- by the forces of irrational "believe it or God will send you to Hell" unscientific "listen to what the cleric says" fundamentalist dogmatic and backward religions like Islam and Chrisianity, then join the RSS or help its activities.

If you are afraid of being targetted as "fascist" by the anti-Hindu Communists and hence don't want to help the RSS, at least spread this article so that others more willing to take risks will read my arguments and help the RSS in peacefully preventing the destruction of Mankind's greatest treasure: the enlightened path, the Sanatana Dharma, called Hinduism.

Hindustan Times reports:

Dravid attends RSS function; Left unhappy
Sutirtho Patranobis
New Delhi, February 6, 2007

The Left parties have expressed their displeasure over Indian cricket team captain Rahul Dravid attending a function organised by an RSS-affiliated body in Nagpur in January.

On January 20, Dravid inaugurated a "surya namaskar" (a yoga-based ritual to worship the sun) programme organised on the occasion of Makar Sankranti by Vidya Bharati, an RSS-affiliated organisation that runs a chain of schools. After lighting the lamp at a gathering in the Ramnagar area of Nagpur, Dravid went on to give a speech and asked the attending children to do 'surya namaskar' daily. It keeps the body fit, Dravid added.

Following the event, RSS mouthpiece Panchjanya carried an article on the event complete with a picture of Dravid, flanked by RSS members, addressing the audience. The article was carried in the February 4 issue of the weekly magazine. In the issue, dated February 11, Panchjanya again made a reference to Dravid, saying that after his participation in the January 20 programme, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh followed suit and organised a similar event.

The Left said on Tuesday that what Dravid played at the Ramnagar Maidan in Nagpur on January 20 was not cricket. Both CPIM and CPI raised objections to the fact that one of the most famous cricketers in the country is rubbing shoulders with an organisation that spreads "sectarian politics" and is "fascist in nature".

"He (Dravid) might be the Indian cricket captain but he is also an individual and an adult. In the end, it is his choice. And if his choice of company is the RSS, good luck to him. Everyone knows, that RSS promotes an ideology that is sectarian. It is his choice if he wants to be made use of by the RSS," CPIM politburo member, Brinda Karat, told HT. She added that the 'surya namaskar' is not a monopoly of the RSS and millions of Indians go through the ritual everyday.

CPI's National Secretary D Raja was more direct and said that Dravid should not have taken part in an RSS function. "Why should he take part in a function organised by RSS, which believes in a fascist and communal ideology? Why should he allow himself to be identified with RSS," Raja asked.

"I was asked to got to a function where a lot of school children were coming to talk on the benefits of yoga. I have no political leanings. Yoga is something where even the Indian cricket team does. I had no idea that this could be used for political purposes,’’ Rahul Dravid told HT from Calcutta on Tuesday evening.

Did Pakistan lie about the Kashmir earthquake casualties ?

The Kashmir earthquake is distant memory for most people now, but it happened just 16 months ago and was on our front-pages for several months afterwards (being used by Pakistan for fund-raising), till just about six months ago.

Pakistan raised a massive hue and cry about the earthquake, asking for millions of dollars from the international community. A large number of Islamic "charities" also sprung up workdwide to collect money for aid, as people all over the world, of all religions, donated with an open hand, hoping that this would make the Radical Islamists trying to kill and terrorize us that they were making a mistake by considering us the enemy.

But neither Pakistan nor the "charities" published any detailed accounts of how the money was spent and by whom, and on what. Several news reports have told us that Lashkar-e-Tayiba and Jaish-e-Muhammad terrorists with Kaslashnikov rifles were going about all over Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir, in charge of "relief work".

It was also reported that money raised by Islamic "charities" had been used to plot and organize Islamic terrorist attacks, such as the recent plot by 23 British-born Muslims of Pakistani descent to blow up 10 airplanes en route from UK to USA.

The earthquake in Jammu and Kashmir occurred close to the Line of Control separating Indian Kashmir from Pakistan-Occupied-Kashmir -- just about 50 miles from the LoC on the Pakistani side.

About 1400 people were reported dead on the Indian side. Pakistan started screaming and howling on the international arena, saying that over 73,000 people had been killed on its side of the border, and asking for large amounts of money.

Since the epicenter was so close to the LoC, and the population density is roughly the same on both sides of the Loc (because of the mountainous terrain that cannot support heavy densities of human population), shouldn't one have expected the casualties to have been roughly equal on both sides ?

How did Pakistan come to have 52 times as many people dead in the earthquake than India did ? Did Pakistan lie ?

True, a lot of dead-bodies were shown; several hundred bodies, though no international agency actually inspected and verified that 73,000 bodies were there as claimed by Pakistan. I accept that this verification was hard to do because the immediate priority was to bury the bodies before they started rotting -- though it was pretty cold and rotting was not as major a problem as it would have been in hotter climes.

So, let's even say we believe that Pakistan actually had 73,000 dead bodies.

But how do we know all of the dead-bodies people who had really died in the earthquake ? Or were many of the dead-bodies that of hapless Pakistani minority Hindus kidnapped from other parts of Pakistan, killed and left to rot among the earthquake debris to attract International sympathy and money ?

Pakistani Hindus have been reduced from over 16% of Pakistan's population after the Partition of 1947 to less than 0.1% today. It is no secret that they are regularly intimidated, their property taken away, their temples demolished, their women kidnapped, tortured and forcibly converted to Islam, and their menfolk killed in broad daylight while the police and the judiciary turn a blind eye.

An organized ethnic cleansing program has been systematically run for 60 years, that the International community has chosen to ignore. Protecting Hindu lives is not a priority for the Christian West. Protesting persecution of Hindus by Pakistani Muslims is not useful politically for the Muslim-vote-banking "secular" leaders of Hindu-majority India.

Hindu-majority India, trying to prove itself "secular", chooses never to protest against crimes perpetrated on Hindus by Muslims.

How do we know that Pakistan did not kill off a few thousand more Hindus from the minuscule number that remains, and use their dead-bodies to get international sympathy and aid ? They had been killing the Hindus anyway, so this would be hitting two birds with one stone: easily getting rid of evidence of genocide -- dead-bodies -- using the opportunity provided by the earthquake, and getting vast amounts of foreign money at the same time; money that was used right back to carry out more terrorist attacks on the un-Islamic "infidel" world.

As I have said before, it is very suspicious to see claims of 73,000 killed on one side of the LoC and only 1,400 on the other side, by an earthquake that occurred practically on the LoC (the epicentre only 50 miles away on the Pakistani side) and had roughly the same sparse population on both sides in that inhospitable mountainous terrain.

Did Pakistan lie ? I guess we may never know.
