I received an email a few days ago from a group of Indian nationalist historians based in the US. This group has been waging a lonely struggle against the machinations of mischievous White Christian historians of American universities.
In the latest assault, an American professor, Dr. Karen Carr of Portland State University, has written a “Ramayana Project for the Kids.” In this, she has claimed that Ramayana is merely a north Indian book that accuses South Indians of being sub-human “bad monkeys.”
Here is what she originally wrote on the University website:
The Ramayana is partly about the Aryans trying to invade the people of southern India. It’s an Aryan story, and they show the people of southern India as bad monkeys – not even human. How should we feel about this? Should we not perform the play? Should we try to show that Hanuman and the monkeys are people too? How could we rewrite the play from the point of view of the southern Indians?
Predictably, this outraged all Indians — whether from north or south — and a flurry of emails was sent to the professor and the head of the history department of the University. You can follow this exchange on this link: http://sites.google.com/site/hindunow/motivated-distortions After rebuffing the Indians for some days, the reference to “bad monkeys” was quietly removed from the website. Now, it reads something like this:
The Ramayana is partly a metaphor for the Aryans trying to invade the people of southern India. It’s a North Indian story, and it shows the North Indians as the good guys and the South Indians as the bad guys. How should we feel about this? In South India, some people tell this story with the good guys and the bad guys reversed. How would that change the story?http://www.historyforkids.org/crafts/india/ramayana.htm
This is still not good enough. Though direct abuse has been removed, it still drips with poison against the Indians. It is effectively saying that: (i) Aryan invasion theory is correct (no proof is required). (ii) Ramayana is essentially a north Indian story. (iii) It is a story of how the Aryans from north India subjugated the South Indians. (iv) It shows north Indians as the good guys and south Indians as the bad guys. (v) How should the world feel about this terrible way the north Indians have been treating the south Indians?
Is this lesson about history or politics? The political agenda of this White Christian professor is clear: create hatred among South Indians for North Indians and show Hinduism as a north Indian import that is a symbol of their slavery. Essentially, it is one more step in the long-term agenda of Anglo Saxons of establishing South India as an independent Christian country. The moves they have been making over the years to achieve this are quite sinister. About 90 percent of all funding sent to India by churches of Anglo Saxon nations is being focused exclusively on Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh. The big question is: Why? I have also observed that somebody is going around planting articles in the media — including in a weekly news magazine of “secular dispensation” — about how north India is totally different from south India in terms of culture, traditions, people, economic progress and language. North Indians and south Indians are being subtly brainwashed against each other.
The Indian government should keep an eye on American professors (most of whom are Bible-thumping White supremacists), especially in the fields of history, sociology and anthropology. These academicians usually work in tandem with the church and CIA and their “scholarship” is geared toward creating mischief and civil unrest in countries around the world to pursue the political agenda of the White race. These charlatans prostitute their profession and will deliver any kind of research that they feel is the need of the hour for pursuing Christianity’s and White man’s agenda of expansion in any part of the world.
What Happened in Rwanda
The same racist game was played by these White Christian “scholars” in Rwanda where they managed to create a civil war between Hutus and Tutsis by propagating the Rwandan version of Aryan Invasion Theory. They claimed (without any proof, of course) that Tutsis were a foreign race (Aryans) that had invaded Rwanda thousands of years ago and subjugated the Hutus (the Dravidians) who were the original inhabitants of the land.
The Rwandan churches and missionaries spread this racist ideology through their schools. Missionary “historians” wrote books about this. Seeds of hatred were patiently sown in a hitherto-peaceful land where Hutus and Tutsis had lived peacefully throughout history with absolutely no history of conflict. Once sufficient poison was injected into national discourse by White Christians, the tinder box was lit, the country degenerated into civil war and hundreds of thousands of Tutsis got massacred by Hutus alleging that the Tutsis were “outsiders” to Rwanda. (The nuns and church priests are reported to have helpfully supplied gasoline to Hutus to burn down Tutsi houses.)
Tribal conflict was unknown in Africa before the White Christians arrived swinging clubs and subjugated the Blacks. Now, tribal hatred is the norm in that hapless continent. Africa was a land of peace and prosperity that turned into the Dark Continent after the White man arrived. This tribal warfare and social hatred is the gift that White Christian sociologists and historians and vendors of the Religion of Love gave the Africans.
The same “gift” is now being offered to Indians through the Aryan Invasion Theory and by brainwashing impressionable kids that Ramayana is a north Indian book written by invading Aryans who call south Indians as ‘bad monkeys.” Indians have to be very careful of this mischief of American professors. The White man and his church have always loved a good genocide in pagan lands. This is how they make gains in the world — by roiling the waters of heathens. We have to be wary and on our guard.
Is the Indian government watching? This is what it should do:
1. Put these professors on the visa black list and bar them from entering India. They can vend their racist theories of hatred elsewhere. They are social arsonists, and should not be given access to one’s country to light up fires.
2. Make it a criminal offense to propagate Aryan Invasion Theory in India. This theory then and now has only one purpose: to lead north Indians and south Indians to a civil war with the ultimate objective of turning south India into a separate Christian country which will be a “major non-Nato ally.”
3. Ask for proof of Aryan Invasion Theory from these so-called academicians. The same “proof” that they offer of similarities between Indian and European languages (Celtic has 200 Sanskrit words in it even today) that is used to “prove” Aryans came to India from Europe can be easily used to “prove” that Aryans went from India to Europe. Why should one conclusion be entertained and the other conclusion banned? This is most likely what happened when the Saraswati river dried up. One branch of those people went eastward toward the banks of the Ganges. The other branch moved westward to Iran and then on to Europe.
This is the “Out of India” theory (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Out_of_India_theory) that was originally propounded by White scholars, but hastily abandoned when they realised that this would mean that Indians have seeded the European civilisation. This common-sensical theory was beyond their tolerance levels and notions of White Supremacy. So they turned the story around and began to claim that it was actually the “White” Aryans who came to India from Europe and seeded Indian civilisation. How convenient! “Indology” studies are the only branch of history where happily no proof is ever required. It is the happy hunting ground of all White racist professors with a fertile imagination. It is the duty of every Indian — “Aryan” or “Dravidian” — to cook their goose.
Dr. Karen Carr has kindly emailed me her reply to this blog post. It is reproduced below.
You might want to correct your impression that I’m a Christian; I am not a Christian, nor is my heritage Christian. I’m sorry you got the impression that I think North Indians today are racists; that is not my intention.
The website is about India before 1500 AD, and that particular page refers to the time when the Ramayana was written, about 300 BC. Surely we can agree that people living in 300 BC might have been racists, without that saying anything about people today? I have similar things to say about other long-ago people on these pages:
As for the suggestion that the Indian government should make it illegal to have free and open academic debate in your country, I can only hope that you will see that to convince people of the truth, a logical argument with evidence is more useful than a police crackdown.
