Indians, especially NRIs in the US, are being encouraged to call themselves as not Indians but “South Asians.” Pakistanis are also being encouraged to call themselves not as Pakistanis but as “South Asians.” Bangladeshis are also being encouraged to call themselves as South Asians and not Bangladeshis.
This “South Asian” thingie has its origins in US think-tanks. Be very careful of it. It is meant to denationalize Indians and benefit Pakistanis. All these “south Asia TV” and “South Asia forums” and “South Asia Times” and “South Asia cultural festivals” have mostly US funding. Pakis are a side show. The agenda of Americans is quite sinister if you think it through. This “South Asia” business is psyops on a national scale to the detriment of Indians. The Yanks have already erased the “Indian Subcontinent” word from everywhere and replaced it with “South Asia.”
My advice to Indians: Assert your Indian nationality at every opportunity and flatly deny that you are a South Asian. The Pakis will try to introduce you to others in a gathering as “both of us are South Asians.” Your response should be: “Actually, I am an Indian. He is from Pakistan.”
For Pakis all over the world, their nationality has become a burden and they now hide behind the “south Asian” label to keep the other confused about their true identity. There is no reason why Indians should agree to do the same.
But this is not the agenda of American thinktanks which have coined this strategy of popularising the “South Asian” word. They have a more sinister agenda of screwing the Hindus. They want to dilute nationalities of both Indians and Pakistanis and eventually merge them. In short, the Americans know the projected population of Muslims in the Indian subcontinent 30 years from now, and are making plans for reunification of India and Pakistan where Hindus will drown under an overwhelming Muslim mass. This reunification is the hottest topic of debate currently in the drawing rooms of Pakistani elite.
The antidote to this South Asian psyops? It is simple. Wear your Indian nationality on your sleeves, proclaim it loudly everywhere you go and make it a point to clearly distinguish yourself from the Pakistanis. And refuse to go to any function or event with the word “South Asia” in its name. Keep repeating to everyone that you are an Indian, not a South Asian.
Here are views of Radha Rajan, editor of Vigil Online, about this South Asia nonsense.
The “South Asia” Subversion
The third idea they are propagating is the concept of South Asia. This concept of South Asia which has no legitimacy is a political construct with its origins in American think tanks where they seek to subsume — Please understand one thing. If there is one thing both Islam and Christianity are afraid of, it is Hindu nationalism. Hindu nationalism poses the biggest threat to both Islam and evangelical church. They are propagating the concept of South Asia where they hope that India’s territorial borders and her Hindu identity will be subsumed in the larger Muslim-dominated region of Pakistan and Bangladesh. When they say South Asia, I don’t think they have Bhutan and Sri Lanka in mind. When they say South Asia, they primarily mean India, Pakistan and Bangladesh.
It is humiliating to find average Indians so woolly headed and gullible like innocent babies. It is amazing how other more shrewd races manage to fool and decieve them again and again. Did these idiotic “south Asian” Indians pause even for a moment to think what accepting this label of South Asia as our primary identity would mean for us and Pakistanis, and how one would gain and the other would lose, and what is in it for us and who is making all this noise about “south Asia,” and which behind-the-scenes force is pushing us in the direction of shedding our national identity and taking on a geographical one instead? The idiotic Indians start walking in any direction they are lured into.
It is demeaning to think that we are no better than guinea pigs and truly behave like them, almost begging thugs of the world to come and fool us and take away what belongs to us. Not for once can we guess the intent of the enemy and plot counter-moves. It is a sad commentary on our race, the inheritors of the wisdom and shrewdness of Chanakya.
If Indians were smart, they would have never agreed to accept the term “South Asia” as replacement for “Indian Subcontinent.” It is only a matter of time before Indian Ocean becomes “South Asian Ocean.”
I will agree to call myself as a South Asian only after all Americans agree to not call themselves Americans anymore but call themselves as “earthlings.” The conversation will go something like this:
“Hey American, yo there! Where are you from?”
“Oh, I am not an American. I am from the earth. I am an earthling and this Mexian standing next to me is also an earthling. Both of us are earthlings and both of us are same people with same culture. Our ancestors came to this continent on boats and slaughtered all Red Indians. Both of us have this shared history and culture. Would you like to come to the Earthling Spellling Bee contest we are organising? Since the last five years, it is being won by earthlings, most of whom are from New York.”
