There are Conspiracy Theories and Conspiracy Theories.
I came across a site which, to say the least, is astounding.
You will know why!

ome Muslims believe that the December 26th tsunami was caused by Indians, Israelis and Americans (i.e. the Hindus, Jews, and Christians).
Since 1992, the magazine argued, leading geological centers in Britain, Turkey and other countries, warned of the need “not to hold nuclear experiments in the region of the Indian Ocean known as ‘the Fire Belt,’ in which the epicenter of the earthquake lies.
Geologists labeled that region ‘The Fire Belt’ for being “a dangerous terrain that can move at anytime, without human intervention,” Al-Osboa’ wrote.
Despite warnings not to carry out nuclear experiments in and around the ‘Fire Belt’, “Israel and India continue to conduct nuclear tests in the Indian Ocean, and the United States has recently decided to carry out similar tests in the Australian deserts, which is included in the ‘Fire Belt’, the Egyptian weekly magazine wrote.
“Last year only, Arab and Islamic states have asked the United States to stop its nuclear activities in that region, and to urge Israel and India to follow suite,” Al-Osboa’ reported.
Although Al-Osboa’ does not rule out the possibility that the tsunami could have been caused by a natural earthquake it speculates however that, “while it has not been proved yet, there has been a joint Israeli-Indian secret nuclear experiment [conducted on December 26] that caused the earthquake.”
The Egyptian weekly magazine concludes in its report that “the exchange of nuclear experts between Israel and India, and US pressure on Pakistan which is exerted by supplying India with state-of-the-art nuclear technology and preventing Islamabad from cooperating with Asian and Islamic states in the nuclear field, pose a big question mark on the causes behind the violent Asian earthquake.”
In August 2002, the Paris Supreme Court summoned Ibrahim Naafi’, editor of the Egyptian daily Al-Ahram, for having authorized the publication of a controversial article entitled ‘Jewish matza is made from Arab blood’ in the October 28, 2000 edition of the paper.
Naafi’ was charged with incitement to anti-Semitism and racist violence…

This is an observation by a Lower Court in India and The Higher Court has taken objection to it!
I am surprised.
Is quoting a fact of Life condemnable?
I would have understood this stricture coming from a Feminist Group,come to think of it, from a Woman, as if a woman does a favor to Men by indulging in sex and that women are least interested in Sex.
A man and woman, if left alone, will always go for sexual intercourse.” This is what a Kancheepuram judge said while awarding life imprisonment to a murder accused last year. The judge‘s loose comments have drawn the ire of the Madras high court, which not only acquitted the accused but also decried the judge for arriving at “judicial conclusions purely based on surmises and conjunctures.”
In the March 13, 2012 order sentencing Kattu Raja, a factory watchman, for murdering a co-worker, the district and sessions judge-II of Kancheepuram had said: “A man and woman, if left alone, will always go for sexual intercourse. In this case, the accused and the deceased might have been left alone. At that time, the accused would have advanced sexual overtures towards the deceased. She might have refused. Still there might have been sexual intercourse between them. Again, the accused would have invited her for sexual intercourse, which she would have refused. This would have resulted in an ill-feeling.”
The order was quoted by the HC division bench of Justice K N Basha and Justice S Nagamuthu while acquitting Raja of all charges on April 30. Flaying the sessions judge for such loose comments, the bench said: “These observations of the trial court are based merely on conjectures. It is not understood as to how the court could come to a judicial conclusion that a man and woman, if left alone, will always go for sexual intercourse.”
Right or Wrong is relative.
It is purely Subjective.
When a vast majority follow a certain practice and decides it to be Right it becomes right.
These value judgement are, at the Social level,are tools of Social Control.
They do not mean anything more.
However, as one has to exist in a Society , one has to follow these norms in this world.
Knowledge or Awareness is of two kinds.
One, knowledge of this world of objects and the other,
The knowledge about oneself,Reality,which is personal and can be felt
only by the individual.
Therefore the Vedas classify Knowledge into two Kinds..
One, The Absolute Knowledge, Para Vidya and
Transient Knowledge, Apara Vidya.
Transient Knowledge is transitory, subject to change, depends on our perceptions and real only in the relative sense.
To illustrate, let us take the case of one sitting in a Room and there is a Table in the other Room which he can not see.
Here, for the one he sits in a room, the table does not exist as it is not visible or seen by him.
If one were to prove its existence from one’s memory that it was there and it used to be there , this argument s fallacious as it does not depend on one’s direct experience.
But, the fact that the table exists can not denied because one has not seen it, is wrong as well
Therefore an Object exists or ‘Is’, from the standpoint of its being there, seen by some body or as an idea in one’s mind.(‘Is’-'Asti’)
It does not exist-’Nasti’, from the stand point of the one who is sitting in the other room.
There is yet another class of people who see the Table for the first time.
As they have not seen it before they can not describe it, that is the table can not be described as to what it is.
This is called ‘Avaktavyam’(Indescribable).
Now look at the three stages of the Object.
It is ’Asti’ ‘Does Exist’, from the stand point of people who see it.
It is ‘Nasti’,'Does not Exist’, from the stand point of one who does not see it.
It is ‘Avaktavyam’, ‘indescribable’, from the standpoint of those who se t for the first time.
So an Object is ‘Is,Is Not,and Indescribable ‘ at the same time, Asti,Nasti , Avaktavyam.
For the technologically inclined,
In Cricket match Live telecasts , we have many cameras covering the event.
The event looks different from each camera.
Which is the correct one representing the Object,Event?
If you have two televisions at Home in two different rooms,you will notice one frame or picture and audio comes later (or earlier than the other.
Which represents the correct Time frame?
Science will explain why it is so by talking about the velocity of light and Sound.( does sound have velocity or speed?)
But it does not explain the phenomena but describes the process for such an event.
Therefore an Object is presented to us in many ways.
This depends on our Senses, Anthakaranas,Gunas,Mind and Chitha.
This, apart from the attributes of the object
Hence in the transient World, an Object ,
Is Not, Nasti,
to different people.
Again the Object may be all of these at the same time,
That is, Is , Is Not, and Indescribable(Asti, Nasti and Avaktavyam)
An object can be predicated in Seven different ways.
2.Is Not,( Nasti)
4.Is and Is Not(Asti Nasti) , depends on the location of the Object and the Observer.
5.Is and Indescribable(Asti Avaktavyam)
6.Is Not and Indescribable (Nasti Avaktavyam)
7.Is,Is Not and Indescribable(Asti,Nasti,Avaktavyam)
This predication of Object forms the Logic of Nyaya System of Indian Philosophy, The Sapthabangi Naya
This is the most advanced system of Logic, better than Logical positivism of Bertrand Russell.
Does an Object, such being the case exist at all?
Nihilists say No.
Empiricists say Yes.
John Locke says, I Know Not’
Adi Sankaracharya says ‘It exits and at the same time does not exist”
Assume you step on some creepers in the night in a forest in and you jump out in fear, assuming it to be a snake.
When you use a Torch, you find that it to be a creeper,
Your Fear is gone.
Your fear was real,
The Creeper was real,
And that it is not a creeper is also Real
Therefore Shankaracharya says all the three statements are true,
The difference is that while experiencing Fear your Awareness,Knowledge was incorrect, because of Ignorance, not knowing all the facts.
Once you come to know all the facts you get the Knowledge,
Removal of Ignorance or Avidya, id Knowledge, Sankara avers.
This being the case of individual Objects, how can one assume the Reality of Objects and events in this world and pass moral judgement?
Any such assertion is contrary to knowledge,
Therefore Right or Wrong is only Relative and has no place in advance knowledge.
Look at this point.
In Egypt, during Cleopatra’s times’ it was the custom to marry one’s sister, brother.
Cleopatra married Ptolemy, her brother first.
Let us see how God would judge two different cases on this issue,
One who does marry one’s brother from another Moral system where marrying sister/brother is incest and morally wrong, and another Cleopatra, after their Deaths.
Would he punish Cleopatra for having married her brother(which was considered Moral by Egyptians at that time) , for incest?
Or would God punish the one , who is not an Egyptian, and who has married her brother for incest?
He can Not. for He Is God, there can be no double standards.
So at the Absolute level thee is nothing as sin or sacred.
Note;This is an advanced concept.
Let not people quote Shankaracharya and indulge in incest.
I would like to quote Rajaji,a Great Statesman and Philosopher of India.
(Rajaji was a lawyer.
Once a murderer approached Rajaji and asked him to represent him in Court.
As a matter of principle C.Rajagopalachari (Rajaji )would never appear for one whom he thought was guilty and so he refused.
The murderer told Rajaji,
‘You believe in Hinduism, Every thing is done by God, So my murder is not committed by me but by God, you should represent me’
‘You are correct.
The same God asked me not to represent you.
The same god will also ask the Judge to hang you”)

Tipu Sultan Facts.
In the first part of his reign in particular he was a religious bigot destroying many temples within his own kingdom-proper and many more in the invasion of Malabar. Mass forced conversions took place during the invasion of Malabar, outnumbered Nair warriors were given choice of Islam or death and Tippu is said to get great pleasure by converting Namboodhiri Brahmins. 20% of the population of Kerala are now Muslim mainly due to this. In battle After being defeated in the first Anglo-Mysore war he started dealing cordially with the Hindus in his kingdom so as to avoid insurrection and get support in the face of the British power. There are some historians who claim that Tippu Sultan was a religious persecutor of Hindus.
C. K. Kareem also notes that Tippu Sultan issued an edict for the destruction of Hindu temples in Kerala.
Historian Hayavadana C. Rao wrote about Tippu in his encyclopaedic work on the History of Mysore. He asserted that Tippu’s “religious fanaticism and the excesses committed in the name of religion, both in Mysore and in the provinces, stand condemned for all time. His bigotry, indeed, was so great that it precluded all ideas of toleration”. He further asserts that the acts of Tippu that were constructive towards Hindus were largely political and ostentatious rather than an indication of genuine tolerance.”
In 1783-84, 1788 and 1789-90, Tipu personally led the attacks on Malayalam (Kerala), besides sending his army contingents to various resistance spots during the intervening period. Well-known Muslim historian, P.S. Syed Muhammed, author of Kerala Muslim Charitram (History of Kerala Muslims), has this to say about these invasions: “What happened to Kerala because of Tipu’s invasion, reminds one of the invasion of Chengez Khan and Timur in Indian history.”
Vadakunkur Raja Raja Varma writes in Kerala Samskrita Sahitya Charitram (History of Sanskrit Literature in Kerala): “The number of temples destroyed during Tipu’s invasion is countless. It was the hobby of Tipu and his army to put the temples on fire destroy the idols and indulge in cow-slaughter. The memory of destruction of the Talipparampu and Trichambaram temples aches the heart.”
According to the Malabar Gazetteer, the important temples in the towns of Tali, Srivaliyanatukavu, Tiruvannur, Varakkal, Puthur, Govindapuram, and Talikunnu were destroyed by Tipu’s ravaging armies. Even the Tirunavaya Temple known all over India as a centre of Rig Veda teaching was destroyed. Tipu personally ordered the destruction of Calicut which was the capital of the Zamorin Rajas.’
In a letter (December 14, 1788), he said to his army commander in Calicut: “You should capture and kill all Hindus. Those below 20 years may be kept in prison and 5,000 from the rest should be killed hanging from treetops”. Writing on January 19, 1790, to Badroos Saman Khan, he said: “I have achieved a great victory recently in Malabar and over four lakh Hindus were converted to Islam. I am now determined to march against the cursed Raman Nair.” Tipu issued orders in different parts of Malabar: “All means, truth or falsehood, fraud or force, should be employed to effect their (Hindu) universal conversion to Islam” (Historical Sketches of the South of India in an attempt to trace the History of Mysore, Mark Wilks Vol II, page 120).
- Whose history is it anyway? (thehindu.com)
The Myth perpetrated by The British and the propagation of it by the Christian Missionaries cloaked as scholars like Caldwell.
The goal for the West very clear, to destroy the Hindu culture to such an extent that they embrace the Western thoughts( and this would consolidate the British Empire in India) and hate Indian Thoughts and they have succeeded in this .
Even to-day this is being taught in Indian schools.
1.There is no mention of the Dravidians in the Vedas.
The Rik Veda lists the things imported from ‘Dravida’ meaning ‘South’, Pearls,Elephant Tusks.
2.The Vishnu Purana mentions that sage Viswamitra, the Rishi who gave the world the Gayathri mantra, exiled his 56 sons for disobeying him the south of Vindhyas,’Dravida’
3. Earliest Tamil Grammar, Tholkappiyam, Literature of the Sangam Period do not mention the word ‘Dravida’ at all.
4. Adi Sankaracharya mentions the word ‘Dravida Sisu, to identify Tirugnanasambandar, (who lived around the 7th century,) in his ‘Soundaryalahari’9Sloka 75)
“tava stanyaṃ manye dharaṇidharakanye hṛdayataḥ
payaḥ pārāvāraḥ parivahati sārasvatamiva |
dayāvatyā dattaṃ draviḍaśiśu-rāsvādya tava yat
kavīnāṃ prauḍhānā majani kamanīyaḥ kavayitā || 75 ||
5.The Kings of south India were ardent followers of Vedic Rites.
During the megalithic period of about 1000 BCE – 400 BCE, people of South India including Tamilagam, shared many beliefs and practices of thenative Dravidian religion with the megalithic builders elsewhere in the Indian subcontinent and beyond. The famous 3.5 metre-high granite figure excavated at Mottur, in present-day Vellore district, is considered the oldest known anthropomorphic representation of God in stone in the Tamil country...
Chera King Perunchotruudhiyan Neduncheralaathan, fed the Panadavas and Kauravas Armies during the Epic war of Mahabharata.
He performed the ‘Tharpana, in his Chera Kingdom, now Kerala for those who died in the War.
It is believed that the great hermit Agastya, who had performed such wonderful deeds by the merits of his penance, is still doing penance in the Agastya Kuta hills. Agastya who had travelled through- out the length and breadth of Bharata had several hermitages. In the Valmiki Ramayana, Aranyakanda, Sarga 11, a description is given, of a beautiful hermit- age of Agastya, and the peaceful atmosphere that prevailed in and around it. Agastya had presented to Sri Rama a bow got from Visnu, when the brothers visited his hermitage. Agastya had accompanied Sri Rama and his followers on his return journey to Ayodhya from Lanka, with Slta after killing Ravana. There is a legend in the Tamilnad that Agastya was a member of the first two 'Saiighas' (groups) of the "three Sanghas", mentioned in Tamil literature. As Agastya was dwarfish he is mentioned as Kurumuni, (short hermit) in Tamil works. He has written a Tamil grammar on music, literature and drama. But this work is not available now. The Tamil Grammar 'Tolkapyam', which is considered to be the oldest gram- mar, was written by Tolkapyar, one of the twelve disciples of Agastya< Even today in certain temples in the Tamilnad, Agastya-worship is carried on. Kambar, has mentioned about Agastya in his Ramayana. A great Tamil author Villiputturan says that the Tamil langu- age is the beautiful maiden presented by Agastya. It is believed that the following works have been com- posed by Agastya: 7. Archaeological Proof. There are more than 2,500 Archaeological sites, two-thirds of which are along the recently discovered dried up Sarasvati River bed. These sites show a cultural continuity with the Vedic literature from the early Harrapan civilization up to the present day India. 8. Sarasvati River. Several independent studies of the drying up of the Sarasvati River bed, all indicate the same time period of 1,900 B.C.E. 9.The late dating of the Vedic literatures by indologists is based on speculated dates of 1,500 B.C.E. for the Aryan Invasion and 1,200 B.C.E. for the Rig Veda, both now disproved by scientific evidence.
