Jholawalas of JNU teaching sedition

Seeds of future conflict are being sown by the jholawalas of JNU by brainwashing a gullible section of Hindus with the Aryan-Dravidian theory. These people want to trigger a civil war and are traitors, and I won’t be surprised if this is being done with the encouragement of missionaries. I hope the IB is keeping a watch on these people. It’s time India shut down JNU and turned it into an engineering institute. In fact, it’s time all social science departments were shut down as these are just tools of neo-colonialism in the hands of the Whites.

The same Aryan-Dravidian theory was used to project Ravana as a South Indian Dravidian hero who fought with the North Indian Aryans. The “Dravidians” did a U turn when they were told that Ravana was a Brahmin and a devotee of Lord Shiva. Now, the JNU jholawalas are playing the same trick in the north with Mahisasur.

Tribals, backwards seek own voices in Durga Puja this year

Over 15 districts spread across Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Jharkhand, West Bengal and Orissa saw Durga Puja with a difference this festival season. Instead of the goddess slaying Mahishasur, the usual story of the Puja, this year, tribals and people belonging to Scheduled Castes and backward classes in these districts are celebrating the “demon king” as a non-Aryan inhabitant and a just king of the land, with Durga representing Aryan invaders.

They will conclude the Puja with Vijay Dashmi or Dussehra marked as ‘Mahishasur Shahadat Diwas (Martyrdom Day)’.

According to this version, it is the Brahmins and Aryans who spun the “false” yarn of Durga being good and Mahishasur evil.

The first Mahishasur Diwas celebration was organised by the All India Backward Students’ Forum at Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), New Delhi, three years ago — perhaps the first such subaltern version of the mythology of Mahishasur and Durga. Now, for the first time, it is being observed at such a large scale.

“The nine days of Durga Puja have never been a time of celebration for the Kherwal tribes but that of mourning. Only this time, there is greater awareness amongst our people about the story of Mahishasur and Durga,” Ajit Prasad Hembram, a tribal activist organising the Mahishasur Martyrdom Day in Purulia district of West Bengal, said over the phone. “Similar ceremonies are being organised in at least 20 different places in West Bengal this year, including Malda, Bankura and Hooghly.”

As per Hembram and Ashwini Kumar Pankaj, a tribal activist and editor of Johar Disum Khabar, a multi-lingual journal published from Ranchi, Mahishasur (also known as Hudhud Durga) was a clan leader of tribals in the Santhal region, who put up a strong fight against Aryan invasion. According to Hembram, as tribals did not pick up weapons against women, children, aged and the weak, the Aryans sent a woman to lure him. “The Aryans came with a proposal of marriage. But they used treachery and a woman called Durga killed Mahishasur,” said Hembram.

A similar story is narrated by Pankaj: “There is a tradition among the Santhals wherein during the Navratras, they hold what is called the Dasain dance. During that dance, tribals visit houses and search for something. That something is nothing but Hudhud Durga.”

Celebrating the Mahishasur Martyrdom Day on Sunday, tribals in Puruliya danced the Dasain and Kathi dance and presented their story of Hudhud Durga through a play, apart from organising meetings and telling people about Mahishasur, said Hembram.

He added that Asur or Rakshas as presented in the Vedas and Puranas were none other than natives who fought the Aryans to protect their land. “There is still a tribe called Asur amongst the Kherwals. So they are living people who are shown as devils and killed symbolically every year at Durga Puja,” said Hembram.

Dr Vijay Kumar Trisharan, president of the Ambedkar Chetna Parisar, Palamu, Jharkhand, will organise the Mahishasur Martyrdom Day on Monday in his district.

In Giridih district of Jharkhand, people are observing the Mahishasur Martyrdom Day by tying black clothes on their faces and narrating the story of the just king door to door, said Damodar Gop of Giridih.

Like the tribals, the Yadavs also claim to be descendants of Mahishasur. One view is that the name Mahishasur is derived from ‘Mahish’, meaning buffalo, the main source of sustenance for both the Yadavs and tribals.

“Mahishasur was our ancestor and these stories of him being a demon are wrong,” said Rajvir Singh Yadav, founder president of the All India Prabudh Yadav Sangam and editor of the journal Yadav Shakti Patrika. “We are advocates of equality and are striving to promote rational thinking and wipe out superstitions.”

Yadav will organise the Mahishasur Martyrdom Day in Sitapur, Uttar Pradesh. It will also be celebrated in Kaushambi, Deoria, Sant Kabir Nagar, Unnao and Maharajganj districts of the state.

Bihar will also see such celebrations in Patna, Nawada, Muzaffarpur and Buxar. In Muzaffarpur, the celebrations will also include an idol of Mahishasur. Harendra Prasad, who is organising the meeting in Minapur, Muzaffarpur, claims to be a descendant of Mahishasur and said he will soon get a marble statue of Mahishasur erected.

In Orissa, Kalahandi district will hold the Mahishasur Diwas, said Narayan Bagarty, a social activist.

According to Jitendra Yadav, president of the All India Backward Students’ Forum and a PhD scholar at JNU, the “widespread acceptance” of the Mahishasur Diwas was a successful attempt to emancipate subalterns from the grasp of Brahminical culture.

“India is a land of myriad cultures. But a particular group forced its own version of culture and religion on us. It was against this homogenisation that we started observing the Mahishasur Martyrdom Day,” he said.

    @Indian Realist,

    There was no Aryan invasion, let alone any Aryan-Dravidian conflict.
    Shrikant Talageri has disproved the Aryan invasion theory in a very
    scientific and logical way, in his three books dealing with the subject.

    the Asuras and Rakshakas are not classified based on caste, but on
    their behaviour and character. This propaganda is nothing but
    Christian missionary propaganda to undermine the sanctity of
    hindu religious festivals and cause division in Hindu society.

  6. Jaipal

    @Indian Realist,

    These so-called scheduled caste Hindus are utterly misinformed
    and ignorant. They do not know the correct history that Aryan

    invasion theory is a hoax perpertrated on Indian Hindus to undermine
    their culture and heritage.

    There is simply no evidence of any Aryan invasion, let alone
    Aryan Dravidian conflicts. Ravana was basically a Brahmin by birth but

  7. Jaipal

    Continued from above….

    Ravana was basically a Brahmin by birth but is considered an Asura or a
    Rakshaka. Why? Because of his bad deeds like kidnapping another
    man’s wife, namely Sita. So being an Asura is not about Tribal/caste
    but behaviour and actions. Same with Mahishasura.

  8. Jaipal

    @Indian Realist,

    I would advise you to bring this matter to the attention of RSS, before
    any more damage can be done to the sanctity of Durga Puja.

    The RSS will know how to handle this issue and dissuade the lower
    castes from doing this nonsense by providing correct information
    to them.

    They are crossing the border illegally and violently displacing the indigenous population whose homes and possessions they either destroy or occupy. They are attacking the young, the elderly, and especially the girls and women, whom they kidnap, forcibly convert, or traffic into brothels. The locals are terrified of them. The police rarely come to their aid, nor do the politically correct media or government. Both are terrified by the criminals and terrorists who are riding these immigrant waves.

    In Hindu scriptures, MAHISHASURA was an asura.
    MAHISHASURA ‘s father Rambha was king of the asuras, and he once fell in love with Princess Shyamala, who was cursed to be a water buffalo; MAHISHASURA was born out of this union. He is, therefore, able to change between human and buffalo form at will (mahisha is Sanskrit word for buffalo).
    After the death of Tarakasur by Shiva’s son Kartikeya, the demon brothers Rambh and Karambh came to the throne of the netherland. Their mother, Danu, instructed them to do penance and obtain desired boons. Hence, Rambh and Karambh did penance to please Agni (Fire God) and Varun (Water God) respectively. Rambh started doing penance in Agni chakra whereas Karambh was half immersed in river water while doing penance. Lord Indra disguises as a crocodile and killed Karambh while Rambh successfully completed his penance and got a boon from Agni that he will obtain an extremely powerful son, who will rule over the three worlds in this universe. Rambh fell in love with Mahishi (buffalo woman) and married her. Mahishi soon got pregnant by Rambh. Once her lover, a Mahish, tried to abduct her. Rambh came in to protect his wife but was killed by the Mahish. In the cremation process of Rambh, Mahishi jumped into the fire, to sacrifice her life to express her love for her husband. Hence, Yama was stopped from taking away the soul of Rambh and Rambh got retained into the womb of Mahishi.
    From the cremation fire, emerged two demons namely Raktabeej (rebirth of Rambh) and MAHISHASURA (the child of Rambh). MAHISHASURA obtained a boon from Lord Brahma that no man will kill him, he gathered strong powers from Lord Brahma as a reward for his penance. MAHISHASURA also gathered a large demon army to win for the heavens. In heaven, Indra learnt about the boon that MAHISHASURA got from Lord Brahma, he sent in a large heavenly army, MAHISHASURA came to the battlefield with his army as well with Indra’s. The demons were chanting for Mahishasur while the heavenly army was chanting for Indra. Indra warned MAHISHASURA to go back where he belongs, MAHISHASURA didn’t want to. A battle began, the heavenly army failed to kill Mahishasur’s army. MAHISHASURA defeated Indra by obtaining the heavens. All Gods went to Shiva, Brahma and Vishnu to destroy the demons.
    After the Gods’ request to destroy the demons, Shiva, Brahma and Vishnu assembled forth together and from their anger emerged rays of light were combined onto other flames with other Gods have lost their anger. The rays of light were combined onto other flames as well. The rays of light issued forth together and took shape of a woman. The lady had a fair complexion, locked black hairs and wearing an old dress, all Gods presented her with new red clothes, jewelry, a crown, a lion for her vehicle, weapons, makeup and many others. The lady put on makeup to make herself look pretty, she had uncountable hands. Shiva gave her a trident, Vishnu gave her a mace, Brahma gave her a bow and arrow, Indra gave her a thunderbolt, Wind God gave her a conch shell, Fire God gave her a bell, Rain God gave her a container of blood, Sun God gave her his powers of the bright 10,000 suns inside her most powerful body, Rudra and Veerbhadra both gave her a shield, sword and scimitar, Lord Yama gave her a lasso, Vishwakarma and Kuber gives a battle-axe, lotus, weapon made out of thorns, spear, longsword, vajra, spade, baton, beating stick, cleaver, javelin, snake and many others. She also rides on a lion as her vehicle. The Gods kindly asked her to destroy the evil demons, Lord Vishnu gave her the name of Goddess Chandika. By hearing this name, she spoke out to the Gods that she will annihilate the evils in many forms.
    She caused trouble for the demons by making the three worlds shake, even the heavens and the hell. The demon King was terrified and ordered his enoumous army to attack the one who makes the storming sound. Goddess Chandika on her lion saw the uncountable army of demons. Ugrasen came with 60,000 chariots, Shichsur came with one million horsemen, Vidhan came with one hundred soldiers and Vashkaal came with countless demons. The demons started to attack Chandika. On seeing the huge demon army, the lion attacked them first, Chandika used her spear to pierce the demon’s chest. Later, Goddess Chandika created many warriors. The furious war began with the warriors of Chandika wiping the demonic hoardes out one by one. By then, all demons of Mahishasur were wiped out. and attacks and kills the demons again by doing terrible things to them like blowing a storm out of her mouth, turning them into ashes (burning them alive), beheading their heads, decapitating them by eating their skin alive, eating them alive, scratching them, choking them, stabbing their chests, drinking their blood, breaking their bones, breaking their necks, twisting their hands and legs and swinging them away.
    Finally, the demons were killed. Chandika’s soldiers celebrated their victory by dancing, singing, playing the drums, flutes, sitars and many more. All Gods, saints, sages, celestial beings, Yakshs, Yakshinis, men, women and children paid gratitude to Goddess Chandika. After the death of the demon army of MAHISHASURA, Chixsur was furious and came in forefront to battle the Goddess, he attacked the Goddess with a rain of arrows, Chandika counter attacked by raining her own arrows on Chixsur. His arrows were broke into pieces and his bow string was snapped. Then, he used a devil’s trident, Chandika used her angelic trident and broke Chixsur’s demon trident and Chandika killed him with her trident. She managed to deploy Chixsur’s charioteers, horsemen and demon men. Chamara came to battle Chandika on an elephant, he attacked the Goddess with a rain of arrows. The Lion God and Chandika both leapt in the sky and had a wrestling match, the Lion God managed to claw his head off. Chandika slapped Udayagasur across his face. She killed Udagrasur by punching, hitting, hurling boulders at him and biting, killed Karalasur with her sword, decapitated Baskalasur with thunderbolt, battered Udyatarasur with sword. The Supreme Goddess fell down Ugrasya, Mahahanu and Ugravirya with her battle-axe. Punched Virlaxa in the stomach, kicked Durmukh in the private parts and bit Durdhara in the hand, sending them to hell. MAHISHASURA was the last demon to enter the battlefield, he failed to battle with Goddess without using his supernatural powers, which he had to use. He kept changing form from lion, warrior, buffalo, elephant, goblin, wizard. Goddess Chandika killed his various forms by using scimitar, sword etc.
    Later, MAHISHASURA again obtained the form of a buffalo and attacked Chandika with trees, rocks, boulders and mountains. But Chandika has destroyed them all. At last, the Goddess drank water from her cup and announced: O you fool, hypocrite, crook, felon, clown, vile person, evil, stupid, foolish, sinner, tyrant, wicked person, atrocious creature! I hereby shall drink the water and when I will therefore kill you, Gods will scream out in happiness and nobody will be able to protect you now because your entire demon armies, relatives and friends are no more. You will fight me ALONE!!! On hearing this, Chandika transformed into Durga (with ten arms, not eighteen) and fought Mahishasur with different weapons and she finally killed MAHISHASURA with her trident. The remaining demon Bidalaksh and few demons ran away after the victory of Durga. After killing MAHISHASURA the Gods cried in joy and played flutes, drums, sitars and rang bells, they also did a veneration to the Goddess to their victory for killing MAHISHASURA. Chandika (Durga) became very happy, the Gods tossed flowers at her and sang the MAHISHASURA Mardini song to the Goddess.
    After hearing the songs, Durga promised the Gods that she will be back at anytime, anywhere and at anyplace, before leaving, she enlightened the Gods about destiny and karma and how she appears in many forms to her devotees.
    Durga was merged into Parvati’s body to manifest as her next incarnation to kill Shumbh and Nishumbh.

    Is ‘Tamil Eelam’ a Christian agenda?
    B R Haran
    29 Apr 2009
    The White Christian Church has the unique characteristic of gaining entry into non-White, non-Semitic civilizations, by slow infiltration of important establishments to influence them and create unrest by dividing the local populace along communal or linguistic lines, with the sole objective of Christianising those countries.

    Several instances in history confirm this. The Church has been partially successful in India, as evidenced by the Christianisation of north-eastern states such as Meghalaya, Nagaland, Mizoram, etc., and a few pockets in other States. While interior states have been able to withstand the Christian onslaught, the southern coastal states of Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh have been vulnerable to the evil designs of the Church. This was made possible only because of the help provided by self-serving political leaders in the guise of secularism.

    Influencing politics in Tamil Nadu and Sri Lanka

    The Dravidian Movement of Tamil Nadu comprised only such leaders, who even went to the extent of requesting the British to continue their hegemony over Tamil Nadu. Since then, the unholy ‘Christian-Dravidian’ nexus has worked consistently for the cause of ‘Tamil Nation,’ extending it to the north-east of Sri Lanka as well.

    Just as it divided the Tamil people through the bogus ‘Aryan (Brahmin) – Dravidian (Non-Brahmin) Theory,’ to alienate non-Brahmins from the ‘Hindu’ fold along linguistic lines (Aryan Sanskrit – Dravidian Tamil), the Church similarly divided the Sri Lankan people along linguistic (Sinhala-Tamil) lines. On the one hand, it backed the LTTE fully against the government, and on the other, it successfully infiltrated the Sri Lankan establishment and influenced the government through Sinhala Christian leadership.

    When Sri Lankan Prime Minister Solomon West Ridgeway Dias Bandaranaike introduced the “Sinhala only Act” in 1956, the Island’s first anti-Tamil riots took place. Prior to Solomon Bandaranaike, the Sri Lankan government was headed by leaders like Don Stephen Senanayake and John Kotelawala, and his successors were Sirimavo Bandaranaike, Dudley Senanayake, Junius Richard Jayewardene, Premadasa, Ranil Wickramasinghe, Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunge (married a Christian), Percy Mahinda Rajapakse, who were all either Christians, or Buddhist converts, or married to Christian spouses.

    The first Sri Lankan Tamil leader who started the demand for separatism was a Christian – Samuel James Velupillai Chelvanayakam; he also called for a “Greater Dravida Nadu” on both sides of the Palk Straits.

    It can be said that LTTE just followed his footsteps, backed by the Church and missionaries. Ever since ethnic riots took place in 1983, Anton Balasingham, a Roman Catholic, assumed the mantle of LTTE’s political leadership and was second only to Prabhakaran, also a Christian.

    Ironically, the 85% Hindu majority of Sri Lankan Tamils came totally under the control of a Christian minority leadership, thanks to the Machiavellian machinations of the Church and missionaries. It is difficult to swallow this bitter truth, especially when recalling the glorious past of Sri Lankan Tamil Hindus under the leadership of great Shaivite scholars like Arumuga Navalar, great men like Ponnambalam Ramanathan and Ponnambalam Arunachalam, and intellectuals like the Coomaraswamys. All were widely respected by the Buddhists in Sri Lanka and Ponnambalam Ramanathan was the one who pushed for “Wesak” or “Buddha Purnima” to be a public holiday in colonial Sri Lanka.

    As for Tamil Nadu, though the Church suffered a slight setback when M.G. Ramachandran left DMK and founded the AIADMK, deviating from “Atheism” to “Theism” (moving closer to Hindu religion), and his successor Jayalalithaa followed his footsteps (at least for a while), it seemed to have cleverly moved its coins to influence AIADMK too. Now we have a host of Dravidian parties changing alliances at the drop of a hat and even at each others’ throats, but remaining perennially close to the Church.

    So, whichever party is in power, the Church is able to have its say and continue with its agenda of de-Hinduising the state. Similarly, in Sri Lanka, the Church has been able to influence the leadership of both LTTE and the Sri Lankan government, while causing the death of thousands of Hindus and Buddhists in the decades-long conflict. The Church has also been indulging in blatant conversion activities in both Tamil Nadu and Sri Lanka.

    Influencing Jayalalithaa for the greatest assault on Hinduism

    At one point, the Church found it difficult in Tamil Nadu, due to the enormous influence of Melmaravathur Adiparasakthi Movement and Sabarimala Pilgrimage on Scheduled Caste Hindus, and the various activities undertaken by Kanchi Mutt to reach out to them, besides the enactment of the anti-conversion law by the Jayalalithaa regime.

    But the Church finally succeeded in influencing Jayalalithaa after her party’s rout in the 2004 parliament elections, resulting in two telling actions. First, she repealed the anti-conversion law, enacted by her own government, to appease the Christian community; secondly, she went to the extent of denigrating and destroying the sanctity of a 2500-year-old institution established by Adi Sankara and flawlessly maintained by his order of disciples as ‘Jagath Gurus’ for millions of Hindus.

    Not surprisingly, in October 2004, she received the ‘Golden Star for Dignity and Honour’ (Thanga Tharakai) award from a Ukraine-based Christian organisation named International Human Rights Defence Committee, controlled by America and funded by ‘US Agency for International Development’ (USAID).

    The Indian representative for IHRDC was Mallavarappu Prakash, Bishop of Vijayawada and later Chairman of Tamil Nadu Minorities Welfare Commission! In February 2005, the ‘India International Society’, USA, proposed a tribute for her together with ‘Barath Jyothi’ award, after which evangelist K.A. Paul came to Tamil Nadu in a private jet to give thousands of crores of rupees for Tsunami relief.

    Jaya pursuing Christian agenda

    Since then, Jayalalithaa has clearly sided with the Christian clergy. Last year, while terming the spontaneous ‘retaliatory’ attacks on Christians in Kandhamal, Orissa, as a “disgrace” to the nation, she conveniently ignored the dastardly murder of Swami Laxmanananda and his disciples, and the distribution of blasphemous literature and pamphlets denigrating Hindu Gods and Goddesses, by his opponents. When the Rama Sethu Protection Movement was at its peak, she spoke against the Sethusamudram Project, not with true faith in Sri Rama, but with an eye on the votebank. And while protesting against the Sethu Project, she exhibited her ‘secular’ credentials by pointing out that ‘Adams Bridge’ (Ramar Sethu) was significant to Muslims and Christians as well, a myth which no Christian or Muslim scholar has so far endorsed!

    Even the present election manifesto of her party makes only a passing mention of Rama Sethu! Yet it gives exclusive commitments for Christians, such as Reservation for Dalit Christians (unconstitutional), subsidy for Jerusalem pilgrimage, ‘All Souls Day’ to be made a holiday, hostels with all facilities at nominal charges in towns of minority religious significance, and addressing the ‘security’ concerns of minorities.

    But she gave no commitments regarding repeal of the DMK government’s ordinance on Tamil New Year or returning the Chidambaram Temple administration to the Dikshidars, or any issue concerning Hindus. As if to confirm allegiance to the Christian agenda, she deviated from her original stand on the Sri Lankan ethnic issue and sat on a day-long fast on 9 March 2009, condemning the Indian government’s alleged inaction on the issue and addressed the LTTE as “fighters” instead of her usual remark of “terrorists”. Now she has openly supported the Christian agenda of creation of a separate Tamil Eelam, which amounts to supporting the LTTE and nothing else. After all, the Church-backed LTTE leadership is also fighting for the same cause!

    Sabotaging the legislation on conversion in Sri Lanka

    In 2003, Sri Lankan Buddhist and Hindu leaders joined hands to draft a legislation, at the request of Hindu Affairs Minister T. Maheswaran, to legally stop conversion activities by the Church. Despite the pressure applied by this joint committee which worked for six months to draft the new act for parliament, the Church-influenced Sri Lankan government has been reluctant to enact the law.

    As the Church foresaw that Buddhist-Hindu unity – unity between majority (Buddhists) and the largest minority (Tamil Hindus) – could lead to permanent peace in the war-struck Island, it sabotaged the process of legislation by favouring the creation of an inter-religious council to hammer out a solution. This so-called inter-religious council is a typical Christian strategy (much like the Church-backed inter-faith dialogues in non-Christian countries) to thwart all attempts to ban conversions by an act of parliament; the same has been adopted by the Vatican to stop such legislations in India as well. Though organizations such as ‘All Ceylon Hindu Congress’ (though pro-LTTE), ‘Hindu Council of Sri Lanka’ and ‘National Council of Buddhist Clergy’ are dead against conversion activities, the Church has been able to influence the political leadership across the spectrum to sabotage the legislation of the anti-conversion law
    (http://www.ipsnews.net/interna.asp?idnews=20884 ).

    In this context, it must be noted that the former Hindu Affairs Minister in Ranil Wickramasinge’s cabinet T. Maheswaran escaped an assassination attempt in 2004, but was finally assassinated on 1 January 2008 while worshipping in a Shiva Temple. Till date, the government has not completed investigations in to the murder, though it has been blamed for allegedly reducing his security level and for continuing minister Douglas Devananda, widely alleged to be involved in the assassination. The government put the blame squarely on LTTE and Douglas Devananda also denied the allegation of involvement. The BBC Sinhala.com reported, “The DNA samples taken from the murder suspect of a Tamil legislator matched with the blood samples taken from the gun used for the killing, Sri Lankan judiciary said. The legislator’s security guard managed to shoot the suspect, identified as Johnson Collin Wasanthan Valentine
    (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/T._Maheswaran and
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/sinhala/news/story/2008/02/080201_maheswaran_dna.shtml ).

    Importance of Hindu-Buddhist relationship

    As early as June 1998, ‘Tamilnet’ reported that an International conference on Hinduism condemned attacks on Hindus and the destruction of Hindu places of worship by Sri Lankan security forces, and urged Colombo to halt such attacks. The report said that, the ‘First International Conference on Hindu Solidarity’ was held in Paris on 27-28 June at the UNESCO auditorium and attended by delegates from several countries, including functionaries from BJP and VHP (http://www.tamilnet.com/art.html?catid=13&artid=1691).

    Though this seems like a conflict between Buddhist and Hindu communities, it must be understood that the security forces are controlled by a political leadership owing allegiance to the Church. The centuries-old cultural relationship and largely peaceful existence of both the Sinhala Buddhists and Tamil Hindus can be ascertained from two facts.

    First, their coming together to draft a legislation against conversion activities of the Church and missionaries, and second, the statement from the Hindu Council of Sri Lanka that the long-standing cordial relationship between the two religious communities in the Island Nation would go a long way in solving the present crisis and creating peace and harmony.

    It is pertinent to note that Buddhists worship Hindu Gods and Goddesses and Hindus worship Buddha as an Avatar of Maha Vishnu, and both communities follow the same calendar and celebrate the same day as New Year. While condemning the politicisation of the ethnic conflict by self-serving politicians of Tamil Nadu, the Hindu Council felt that areas of common interests must be identified and along with religious commonality and cordiality, local capacities built for peace. It opined that furthering political interests and fanning Tamil chauvinism must be discouraged as it would complicate the situation and inhibit the capacity of the Indian government to help find a lasting solution by bringing both the Sri Lankan government and the Tamils to the negotiating table.

    BJP-led NDA government’s proactive role in the peace process

    Journalist M.R. Narayan Swamy (IANS) reported that the Vajpayee government played a secret but vital proactive role in the peace process between Sri Lanka and LTTE, brokered by Norway: “Overseen by New Delhi, a truce document began to be drafted. Norway was deeply involved in the exercise, roping in some of its veteran diplomats. Eventually, this translated into CFA. India also told Norwegian diplomats to let the LTTE know about the Indian involvement in the entire effort. On Feb 21, 2002, LTTE chief Velupillai Prabhakaran signed the CFA. Wickramasinghe put his signature a day later.”

    By sheer coincidence, both Ranil Wickramasinghe and A.B. Vajpayee lost power almost at the same time (April-May 2004) and J.N. Dixit, appointed NSA by Sonia-led UPA regime, passed away within a few months of his appointment, with all the details about India’s role in bringing the CFA, which he learnt from Ranil Wickramasinghe, when the later visited India after demitting office. It is natural for a Hindu nationalist party to be deeply concerned about the well-being of a country who’s Buddhist and Hindu people are both tied to Hindu India by an umbilical cord; hence it is no surprise that it tried to bring peace in the interests of both countries. Why did the CFA fail and whether the Sonia-led government pursued the policy of the Vajpayee government with regard to Sri Lanka remain unknown?
    (http://www.tamilnet.com/art.html?catid=79&artid=24710 ).

    The present scenario

    At present, all Dravidian parties are wreaking havoc in the run-up to the general elections, using the inflammatory Eelam issue as an election talking point. Each party is trying to whip up emotions in Tamil Nadu to bring about a ceasefire in Lanka and thereby save Prabhakaran and the LTTE.

    When the Father Jagat Gasper Raj-Kanimozhi combine floated the “Chennai Sangamam” cultural extravaganza in 2007, Jaya TV went to town with investigative reports on the LTTE connections of Gasper Raj; Jayalalithaa wasted no time condemning the government’s association with the project. But last year, both Jayalalithaa and her TV channel kept a conspicuous silence during the Chennai Sangamam festival.

    During the last week alone, Father Gasper Raj has been promoted by mainstream electronic media as a representative of Sri Lankan Tamils! Participating in debates on electronic news channels, he blatantly supports LTTE in the guise of voicing human rights concerns, criticizes the Indian government, and in one debate on Times Now Channel had the audacity to call Dr. Subramanian Swamy a “paid agent of Rajapakse”! Yet it is unclear if he is a Sri Lankan refugee or an Indian citizen. His antecedents and present activities in India/Tamil Nadu need thorough investigation.

    AIADMK leader Jayalaithaa, who condemned Karunanidhi for saying Prabhakaran was not a terrorist, has not reacted to her ally PMK leader Ramadoss’ identical statement! Why does Jayalalithaa, who questioned Sonia’s silence on Karuna’s statement, remain silent on Ramadoss’ statement?

    And what has the Italian-Christian-led UPA done for Sri Lankan Tamil Hindus in the last five years? Why didn’t the Sonia-led regime follow the NDA policy with regard to the Sri Lankan Tamil issue? Why was her government silent when the Geneva round of talks failed despite the presence of a live CFA?

    Sad irony, and civilisational opportunity

    Actually, the West and the Church want to Christianise Sri Lanka and Tamil Nadu and form a larger Tamil Christian State. Hence a Sinhala-Tamil divide has been created with the help of the Tamil-Christian leadership of the LTTE and the Sinhala-Christian leadership of Sri Lanka.

    Caught in between are the Sinhala Buddhist and Tamil Hindu civil populace. To keep the issue alive without any solution, the Christian leadership of India and the Dravidian, irreligious leadership of Tamil Nadu have been used, just as this diabolic group is using Dravidian politicians and Christian NGOs who have been harvesting souls in both Tamil Nadu and Sri Lanka. It is a sad irony that the interests of hapless Tamil Hindus of Sri Lanka, who have been persecuted for long by both the Christian leadership of LTTE and the Christian leadership of Sri Lankan government, have been represented by the unholy Christian-Dravidian nexus in Tamil Nadu.

    As things stand in Sri Lanka, it looks as though the West might be able to save the LTTE leadership. It will try to send missionaries and NGOs to help the rehabilitation process, so it can clandestinely achieve its evangelical agenda also.

    It is said that President Rajapakse instructed setting up of a chapel in the ‘welfare villages’ to look into the spiritual needs of the internally displaced persons and refugees, who number up to 200,000. Sensing the danger of evangelization, the Hindu Council, the Hindu Women’s Society (Saiva Mangaiyar Kazhagam), the Sai Samithi, along with other organizations, swung into action to provide medicines, clothes, soaps, detergents and sanitary napkins and other articles of basic necessity, to augment the shelter, food and water provided by the government. The Hindu Council has also organized singing of Tamil devotional hymns (Thevaram and Thiruvasagam); the Sai Samithi has organized bhajans. These organizations are likely to take care of orphaned children by sending them to orphanages run by the Sri Ramakrishna Mission.

    The present situation must be seen as an opportunity to revive Hindu-Buddhist unity and Hindu religious heads from India, especially from Tamil Nadu, would do well to establish contact and communication channels with Buddhist leaders of Sri Lanka. This will go a long way in bringing peace and harmony to the Island Nation. For this to happen, we need a strong “Hindu” political leadership in India. Let us hope it gets ‘elected’ now.

      JUST ANOTHER THREAT…
      The world’s busiest pilgrimage center; hundred per cent % Hindu in character and identity; great religious, cultural and educational hub; rich in Hindu Temples and educational institutions – that is Tirupati! Ancient temples and the sacred Swarnamuki River assert the character and identity of this magnificent place. People owe their existence to Bhagwan Venkateswara and everything is done in Bhagwan Balaji’s name only.

      Now the pilgrimage center is on the verge of losing its peace and piety due to the attempt of a Muslim business group to establish an Islamic University at the foothills of Thirumala. Heera Islamic Business Group, which has its head office in Hyderabad, is constructing a massive six storey varsity in a village called Chandragiri in Tondavada Panchayat, just 13 kms away from Tirupati town. Named Heera International Islamic College, the construction has caused huge concern in the minds of the local populace and the town could soon witness a series of protests and legal wars, thanks to the government authorities who have allegedly given permission for its construction without application of mind.

      This issue is similar to the situation which prevailed in 2006 when the then Chief Minister Samuel Rajasekhar Reddy, who was encouraging Christian missionary activities in Tirumala-Tirupati, released a GO saying Bhagwan Venkateswara’s assets were only two hills covering an area of 27.5 sq. kms., and the other five hills would be taken over by the government for converting them into a picnic spot with multiplexes, food courts, commercial, sports and entertainment infrastructures, including a rope-way to reach the top of the hills. He was forced to beat a retreat after fierce agitations by several Hindu organizations. The AP High Court also quashed the Government Order.

    Mahishasur was a descent of Brahma, a Vedic God.
    The Asuras are descendents of Daksha Prajapati who was a son
    of Brahma, according to Hindu scriptures. These lower caste Hindus never do their homework properly. Asura was one of the names for the
    Devas in an early part of Vedic history, therefore, it cannot be the name
    for so-called scheduled caste tribes ect.

  13. Jaipal

    The Rakshasas, Daityas, Danavas ect are the descendants of Maharishi
    Kashyapa, a Vedic sage of repute. Therefore, by lineage they cannot
    be so-called Dravidians or lower castes as these fools allege.

    The reason why they are called as such is only because of behaviour and conduct, not because of their race or caste.

    @Jaipal
    This is just merely christian agenda .
    They want to create situation like Rawanda,where 2.50 million people died in Hutu -Tutsi massacre, several church figure and nuns found guilt in this massacre. In india christianity is just merely a colonial tool and missionaries are little more than imperial agent.
    Our friends Alok Misra and John are misguded youth
    just playing in the hand of their western masters
    who want to make this country into mutual hostile comps after introducing war of terror I.e.Civil war .
    The war is on.The war against deadly cocktail ideology like Dravidian Christianity and very much
    in favour of democracy, library ,the very air ,we are breathing.
