The ancient Hindu temples established by the Vijayanagar kings are now being converted into dargahs by Muslims. Don’t blame the Muslims. Blame Gandhi who allowed them to live in India even after they had broken the country into two in the name of religion and even when they took away one-third of India’s sacred land where the Taliban now roams. Muslims being Muslims, they will keep doing these things. But what of the deranged Hindu “leaders” who keep snatching defeat from the jaws of victory?
When the whole of South India was overrun by the Muslim invasion, Hinduism was at stake during 13-14 century AD. At this juncture, Vijayanagara Empire with its capital at Hampi was established in 1336 AD with the sole aim of protecting Hinduism.
“But for Vijayanagar, Hinduism would have been reduced to a shadow and a mockery” says Dr. P B Desai, a famous historian. Paes, a contemporary visitor described Hampi as “the best provided city in the world”, and mentioned that it was “as big as Rome”.
Abdul Razzak (1443 A.D) says that it was a city “such that eyes have not seen or ear heard, of any place resembling it upon the earth”. With the fall of Vijayanagar Empire, Hampi was completely destroyed by Muslims in 1565 AD. The area is now full of Temple ruins, defaced idols, fort walls etc. Hampi is now a world famous tourist centre with a rich cultural background.
Situated on the bank of Tungabhadra River, it is the abode of the Lord Virupaksheshwara, the presiding deity of the area, which attracts thousands of devotees. During the historical period, Virupaksha was considered almighty wherein no human king or ruler had any power. The Unesco has recognised it as a great historical place and has listed it under the World Heritage Series. It is even now a place of pilgrimage visited by thousands of devotees everyday.
Such an area is now wantonly defaced by Muslims; a repetition of what was done in 1565 AD. Many ruined Temples have been converted into Dargas. The Eeranna or Virabhadras Temple near the holy Purandara Mantap has been convered into Honnursabi Darga. The Santana Naga Temple is now Sayyad Bagdad Shah Darga. More than fifty Dargas have appeared in Hanumapada valley.
Besides Muslims have begun to perform Namaz illegally in places like Hajara Rama Temple and Maranavami Dibba. Besides thousands of Hippies who flock to Hampi have converted Hampi into a place of amusement and sexual activities. Liquor and other intoxicating materials are for sale in the area. The resorts cater to their needs. In this area, a Kashmir Muslim youth had a sexual union with a cow a few years ago.
The Yoga Bhumi of Hampi has been converted into Bhoga Bhumi by these elements. Neither the Hampi World Heritage Management authority nor the Deputy Commissioner have taken any action to stop such illegal, immoral activities in a sacred place like Hampi.
The whole world is getting tired of church-planting by Christians and mosque-planting by Muslims. These two religions and their half-crazed followers treat the entire planet as their battlefield. The world will be a far better and more peaceful place if the dream of world conquest of Christianity and Islam were to magically disappear tomorrow. What does spirituality have to do with ruling this world? Nothing. These two religions are actually political ideologies masquerading as religions. Their aim is political power, not spiritual upliftment.
