Three Gentlemen Or Three Idiots Of Dadri ?


India is one country, where under the garb of Freedom of Speech one can get away with any thing, even murder, literally if your additional qualification is that you belong to a minority community, meaning not a Hindu!

Salman Khan, Shah Khan and AmirKhan.jpg Salman Khan, Shah Khan and AmirKhan.

Dilip Kumar.jpg Dilip Kumar.

And if you are a tinsel God, your word is the Bible, even if you have just touched the shadows of an educational institution.

You can air your views that were a  part of bed room talk between a husband and wife.

I have ceased writing on these issues for quite some time as they are trivial , it seemed to me.

But the recent non sensical discussion on Intolerance in India forces me write for leaving these gentlemen’s statements uncontested makes them bolder and as Goebbels dictum goes, the more audacious the lie, more likely that it will be believed.

I read an article in the Tamizhaka Arasiyal , a Tamil Political bi weekly from Chennai which answers most of the issues raised by Amir Khan on intolerance in India.

The article was titled Three Idiots.

His statement that the present situation in India made his wife wonder whether India is a safer place live and whether they should consider relocating.

The article is well  written and I am writing  this article based on the Tamil Article.

It is difficult to catch the flavour of the original nor the force of the article in English.

I shall  attempt.

‘ I am worried about the future of our children’

Said Kiran Rao Mohammad  Amir Hussein  Khan, wife of the Tinsel town Hero Amir Khan.

 

This, the 50-year-old actor disclosed in the Goenka Award function, alluding to the recent ‘incidents’ in India, which to him and his wife was a cause for concern.

 

While no body can deny the right of Mr.Khan to express his views in a country like India,a democracy, it is what he left unsaid is more pungent  that is bound have an impact on people who treat him as a demi God.

He could have stated that the recent incidents had hurt him,

Stray incidents are blown out of proportions,

In a vast country with over 23 languages and different practices, these small issues are bound to be and these should be condemned,

Or he could have said, as another legend of actor, Kamal Hassan did ( who normally takes shot at Hinduism in his movies ,though carefully skirting around Islam or Christianity), that beef eating is a matter of personal choice.

But the great Khan said neither.

Well, one can not expect anything better from one who has just touched the shadow of an educational institution!

He had not said as to which of these incidents had directly ‘threatened ‘ his child’s future. he could/should have.

 

An honest Man would have.

One who had a taken a Movie PK where Hindu Gods were insulted, where Lord Shiva was portrayed as hiding behind a Toilet should pause.

Had he portrayed Gods of other Religions even in a slightly satirical fashion, especially Prophet, would he be alive today?

 

Mind you, this movie was released by the Censor Board of India, when the much maligned Hindutva Party, BJP is in power!

When  some objected to the portrayal of Hindu Gods in PK thus, it was Hindus who raised their voice against this.

Does he remember that One Yousuf Khan had to change his name to a Hindu name so that he could be accepted by the masses.

He was the Legendary Dilip Kumar!

Which party was in power then?

Definitely not BJP

 

He could have expressed his concern about the incidents .

.No. he did not.

How could one who was appointed as the Ambassador was Clean India drive, Swach Bharat, by the same BJP Government?

Was he not threatened then?

Was he not concerned when his Hindu bashing movie raked in 300 Crore at the Box Office?

How come he had a heart to sow the seeds of poison among the Muslims of India, I am talking of normal Muslims, who partake food, functions and even in Temple festivals?

 

The irony is that Khan’s first wife Reena and his second wife Kiran Rao are Hindus.

Had he been in Saudi, Pakistan, can his wives call themselves this way, mixing up Hindu and Muslim names?

Well, if you have deicided to move away from India, which is intolerant, you could have, to liberal regimes like Saudi Arabia or Pakistan.

Saudi Arabia, where people are killed in the name of Law and Order in Public or by terrorists,

Pakistan where one does not know when the next attack would come.

Or To Europe or USA where Islamophobia is ranging, where in the US there is, on an average one Public shooting a Day in this year, or where a Black child was shot dead for carrying a Knife!

Despite these incidents in the US, US citizens did not consider moving away from the US,

Instead, they have made Obama, a Muslim as their President.

In India we revere Dr. Zakir Husssian, Abdul Kalam, Fakhruddin Alil Ahmed former Presidents of India,Nawab of Pataudi,Azharuddin, Bismiilah Khan, Mammotty,Shah Rukh Khan, Amir Khan, Salman Khan ,

We see them as Indians, and not merely as Muslims!

Well, if you are an Indian by heat these thoughts would not even crossed your mind.

If you had a bed room discussion, better keep it there.

India may not be filthy rich .

It  has economic inequalities.

Its roads are not clean.

Might be there have been instances of the sort he mentioned here and there.

Should we not correct them?

Does it mean that one think of running away?

One does not change Fathers because one’s is not as handsome as the neighbour’s.

 

Did Amir Khan about the ruckus created by Muslims during the release of Kamal Hassan’s film Viswaroopam , where a scene was objected to by an unruly crowd?

 

Mr.Khan, if you do not like Narendra Modi, you may attack his policies( Amir Khan earlier stated he did not like Modi or his policies), as Shatrughan Sinha, a BJP big wig does.

But nobody bothers Shatrughan for he does not promote Sedition and spoils religious harmony.

You need the claps of Indians , their money and at the slightest possible excuse you want to run away?

We have another gentleman in Shah Rukh Khan who said that India is sliding back to Dark Ages( TV interview)

Being secular has become dangerous.

He has not been able to practice his religion Islam in India.

How?

As  when he entered into a brawl with women and cricket staff at the IPL, pitch drunk?

Islam promotes Drinking and public brawl?

Part of practicing your religion?

When Shah Rukh Khan was questioned by Income Tax for irregularities in his Club Kolkatta Knight Riders, Modi is blamed for targeting Shah Rukh!

Salman Khan,

A guy who killed people sleeping on the footpath by his drunken driving and changed his version so much that one thinks the  Car was driving itself!

His movies were banned in Pakistan.

Bajrangi Bhaijaan for making reference to the terrorist Hafiz Sayed!

 

How come these gentlemen kept quite when,

Pakistan army butchered Bangladeshis in 1971?

When Professor Joseph’s Hand was cut off in Kerala by Muslims?

Subsequent to Dadri episode Mr. Poojary was killed in Public in Mangalore?

When Snapdeal apps was uninstalled by over 100000 people, Amir Khan says he has no intention of leaving India!

These guys, sensitive, socially conscious?

Ashoka, Emperor of India.image.jpg
India

Greeks Followed Buddhism Ashokas Edicts


I have been planning to write on Buddhism and Jainism, the two Great Religions of India apart from Hinduism.

To begin with let me share information about the propagation of Buddhism around the world.

Ashoka Maurya (/əˈʃkə/; Sanskrit: अशोक मौर्य; 304–232 BCE), commonly known as Ashoka and also as Ashoka the Great, was an Indian emperor of the Maurya Dynasty who ruled almost all of the Indian subcontinent from circa 269 BCE to 232 BCE.[1] One of India’s greatest emperors, Ashoka reigned over a realm that stretched from the Hindu Kush mountains in the west to Bengal in the East and covered the entire Indian subcontinent except parts of present day Tamil Nadu and Kerala. The empire’s capital wasPataliputra (in Magadha, present-day Bihar), with provincial capitals at Taxila and Ujjain.

 

Buddhism in the world during Asoka's Reign.image.jpg

Spread of Buddhism during Asoka’s period

Asoka took to Buddhism with great zest and propagated it around the world by sending out preachers.

He had recorded this in his edicts.

Emperor Asoka's Edicts.image.jpg

Emperor Asoka’s Edicts Locations.

The Ashoka inscriptions represent the first tangible evidence of Buddhism. The edicts describe in detail the first wide expansion of Buddhism through the sponsorship of one of the most powerful kings of Indian history. According to the edicts, the extent of Buddhist proselytism during this period reached as far as the Mediterranean, and many Buddhist monuments were created.

The inscriptions proclaim Asoka’s beliefs in the Buddhist concept of dhamma and his efforts to develop “dhamma” throughout his kingdom. Although Buddhism and the Buddha are mentioned, the edicts of Asoka tend to focus on social and moral precepts rather than religious practices or the philosophical dimension of Buddhism.

The inscriptions revolve around a few repetitive themes: Ashoka’s conversion to Buddhism, the description of his efforts to spread Buddhism, his moral and religious precepts, and his social and animal welfare program.

Ashoka explains that he converted to Buddhism out of remorse for his conquest of the Kalingas around 264 B.C.E. in eastern India (near the present-day state of Orissa):

Beloved-of-the-Gods, King Piyadasi, conquered the Kalingas eight years after his coronation. One hundred and fifty thousand were deported, one hundred thousand were killed and many more died (from other causes). After the Kalingas had been conquered, Beloved-of-the-Gods came to feel a strong inclination towards the Dhamma, a love for the Dhamma and for instruction in Dhamma. Now Beloved-of-the-Gods feels deep remorse for having conquered the Kalingas (Rock Edict Nb13, S. Dhammika).

Following his conversion, Ashoka traveled throughout India and visited sacred Buddhist locations, where he would typically erect a pillar bearing his inscriptions:

Twenty years after his coronation, Beloved-of-the-Gods, King Piyadasi, visited this place and worshipped because here the Buddha, the sage of the Sakyans, was born. He had a stone figure and a pillar set up and because the Lord was born here, the village of Lumbini was exempted from tax and required to pay only one eighth of the produce (Minor Pillar Edict Nb1, S. Dhammika).

Ashoka’s concept of “Dhamma” seems to be synonymous with righteousness. In order to propagate the Buddhist faith, Ashoka explains he sent emissaries to the Hellenistic kings as far as the Mediterranean, and to the peoples throughout India, claiming they were all converted to the Dharma as a result. He names the Greek rulers of the time, inheritors of the conquest of Alexander the Great, from Bactria to as far as Greece and North Africa, displaying an amazingly clear grasp of the political situation at the time.

Buddhist proselytism at the time of kingAshoka (260-218 B.C.E.).

Now it is conquest by Dhamma that Beloved-of-the-Gods considers to be the best conquest. And it (conquest by Dhamma) has been won here, on the borders, even six hundred yojanas away, where the Greek king Antiochos rules, beyond there where the four kings named Ptolemy, Antigonos, Magas and Alexander rule, likewise in the south among the Cholas, the Pandyas, and as far as Tamraparni (Rock Edict Nb13, S. Dhammika).

The distance of 600 yojanas (a yojanas being about 7 miles), corresponds to the distance between the center of India and Greece (roughly 4,000 miles).

  • Antiochos refers to Antiochus II Theos of Syria (261-246 B.C.E.), who controlled the Seleucid Empire from Syria to Bactria, in the east from 305 to 250 B.C.E., and was therefore a direct neighbor of Ashoka.
  • Ptolemy refers to Ptolemy II Philadelphos of Egypt (285-247 B.C.E.), king of the dynasty founded by Ptolemy I, a former general of Alexander the Great, in Egypt.
  • Antigonos refers to Antigonus II Gonatas of Macedon (278-239 B.C.E.)
  • Magas refers to Magas of Cyrene (300-258 B.C.E.)
  • Alexander refers to Alexander II of Epirus (272-258 B.C.E.)

Nehru Edwina Honeymoon During Noakhali, Refuses UN Seat


As the propaganda blitz is on the History of India is being scrutinized, apologists for the West and the Nehru family are on the over drive attacking the attempt to restore Indian History, which hitherto been dubbed as mythology deliberately by the west, I am posting some authentic information on the devious attempts of the Wt and on the myth of Nehru family as paragons of virtue and dedicated patriots of India. though my post is essentially share Indian thoughts on Philosophy,Religion,Science and Unique Hindu Temples.

While it is important to debunk the false ancient  history of Indian foisted upon Indians by the west, I feel it is equally important that one exposes the devious misinformation about India’s past by Indians themselves who were Nehruvities.

Mountbatten,Nehru and Edwina.jpg

Mountbatten,Nehru and Edwina.

 

One of the great  Myths about Nehru is that he was sensitive to human sufferings, India’s welfare was  close to his heart.

So much so, his Birthday is being celebrated as Children’s’ Day in India.

More to follow on the Mysterious death of Shyam Prasad Mukherjee, Nethaji Subhas Chandra Bose and how the latter was fingered by Nehru to the British.

also about Nehru offspring in Bangalore Convent.

Nehru refused permanent Seat in the UN.

But the new UN was non-democratic, giving permanent membership with veto power in the Security Council to the US, Britain, France, the USSR, and Republic of China (represented then by Chiang Kai-shek regime) — the allies victors in the war.

The negotiations leading to the UN Charter were replete with unsavoury incidents of arm-twisting and coercive diplomacy, including spying on delegations participating at the conferences during this period. The allies soon fell out, and the Cold War period saw the US and USSR exploit their veto power to the hilt, vetoing membership of states and in other disputes involving peace and security.

Ironically, around 1955, Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru was offered the disputed Chinese Permanent Security Council seat by the US to keep out the People’s Republic of China, and he also was sounded out by the USSR Prime Minister, Nikolai Bulganin, to allow China to take this seat while giving India a sixth permanent seat in the Security Council. Nehru rejected this offer in deference to China. History may have been different if this offer had been subjected to serious negotiations. Now, 54 years later, we are struggling for this seat.”

Netaji And Japan War Crimes Why Classified Documents


There is an uproar among some sections of India over the refusal to declassify the Netaji documents.

The ruling Party in West Bengal, Trinamool Congress is nationalizing the issue with Forward Bloc and local parties like the MDMK of Tamil Nadu.

However the Congress is keeping mum.

Netaji was a freedom fighter who chose the military option to drive away the British from India with help from Hitler and Japan.

He was imprisoned by the British eleven times in twenty years.

He was also ordered to be killed by the British Spy Agency SOE(Special Operations Executive)

There is confusion about his death.

While one theory says that Netaji was killed in an air craft crash, another says, with Video evidence that he attended Nehru’s funeral and Lal Bahadur Shastri accompanied him to the taxi when Netaji returned.

Please read my post on this.

Why the Government of India has Classified Netaji’s File and are still refusing to do so even after 65 years after the World War II?

Is it because the British who hated Netaji pathologically and had him in the ‘Most wanted List?’

Or there are some issues that they do not want to divulge concerning other Nations which are now close to India?

Was there any nexus between Nehru and other Indian Leaders over the affair and if divulged might affect their reputation and place our countries relations with Britain under strain?

The answer is all the three.

The revelation that Netaji consorted with Netaji and the Japanese would not affect if the information on this is revealed as Britain and Germany are now in the best of terms.

So it has to be something more sinister and hidden from te pages of History.

And why is it that Netaji was honoured by the Japanese Emperor and a shrine has been erected for him while in India, where he is adored by the Indians, where adualtion does not match that of the Japanese?

The story.

 

During World War 2,  Japanese landed at Rabaul on Jan 23rd 1942, after bombing the town and took over without even a fight.

 

 

They used Rabaul as  Naval base and inflicted heavy casualties on the Allies in the World War II.

 

Japan finally surrendered to Allied forces on Sept 6th 1945,  at Rabaul, when General Imamura boarded HMS Glory and formally surrendered at commanded by the Japanese Emperor, to General Vernon AH Sturdee.

 

What happened in between is gruesome.

 

Singapore was taken by the Japanese in  February 1942.

 

A relatively small force of the Japanese routed 90,000 strong Allied forces in six days.

 

The POWs were kept in Changi Prison.

 

There were 41,000 Indian Soldiers, many from the Malay Campaign.

 

Fearing the dropping of Phosphorus Bombs, the Japanese built  subterranean tunnels some 620 km in all.

 

The coaxed an Indian Captain Mohan Singh of INA to aid the Japanese in building the Tunnel and in return promised to aid INA to fight the British.( On 29th Dec 1942, Japanese promptly shed all secrecy and put him into jail.)

 

The Indian soldiers were asked to build the tunnel, not even a single Japanese Soldier was involved.

 

During the process of Tunnel building, torture and Cannibalism by the Japanese and the Papua New Guineans 20,000 soldiers died in  two and a half years!

 

The tunnel.

Japanese Submarine base, Rabaul.jpg

Rabaul Submaine base.Clic to enlarge.

 

Rabaul Tunnel.jpg

Interior of Rabaul Tunnel.

620 km with 93 anti-aircraft guns , 43 cannons and thousands of infantry guns.

 

It had everything built into it, including a 2500 bed hospital , four kilometers long , with five basement levels .

 

Barracks could hold 200000 soldiers. There were 5 airstrips which could be entered from any number of tunnel entrances. Some of these tunnels could hold mini submarines and ships. There were several antiaircraft posts and pill boxes. There were aircraft hangars too.  Inside were mine , bomb , flame thrower and mortar factories.

 

They had 2200 prostitutes shipped in from China, Philipines and Korea.  All of them lived in the tunnels.

 

And at the time of Japanese Fall, they were killed.

 

The Indians died of Malaria, malnutrition, torture ( for NOT completing the daily quota ), big testicle Diphtheria ( nicknamed Changi Indian balls ) , sunstroke, dysentery, wet Beriberi, sheer exhaustion—when they died they were just buried at tunnel extremes with displaced rubble.

 

Medicines were only for Japanese soldiers.  Indian were given sweet potato and water to drink.

 

There was NO electricity to have power tools. Over the last 9 months , to keep at least one air strip operational the Indians were forced to work in the open even with bombs falling around them.

 

Only 436 skeletons were exhumed and buried at Port Moresby Bomana Commonwealth war cemetery . When the found the DNA to be of Indian stock—a plaque was put “ HERE LIES AN UNKOWN BRITISH SOLDIER 1942-45, KNOWN ONLY UNTO GOD

 

The Japanese used the Indian to cultivate 16000 acres of vegetable gardens. They forced the locals to catch fish for them, and these local highlanders were poor fishermen.

 

In June 1943, with Hilter’s connivance , Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose , took over as supreme commanded of INA, renamed as Azad Hind Fauj, got himself a Field Marshall’s uniform and took over..

 

Would not the fact that Netaji did not raise the issue of 20000 Indian soldiers killed and tortured with the Japanese and agreed to collaborate with them cause immense damage to his name also create unrest in India , especially in West Bengal?

Break The Backbone Sanskrit Indian Culture ,Indians Support this?


That Lord Macaulay introduced English to India is known to every one.

It is also , not so well-known that he introduced it, because,

 

“I have traveled across the length and breadth of India and I have not seen one person who is a beggar, who is a thief. Such wealth I have seen in this country, such high moral values, people of such calibre, that I do not think we would ever conquer this country, unless we break the very backbone of this nation, which is her spiritual and cultural heritage, and, therefore, I propose that we replace her old and ancient education system, her culture, for if the Indians think that all that is foreign and English is good and greater than their own, they will lose their self-esteem, their native self-culture and they will become what we want them, a truly dominated nation.”

-Lord Macaulay’s speech in the British Parliament on 2nd February 1835.

Macaulay on India.png

Thomas Babington Macaulay On Hinduism,speech on introduction of English in India.

Now a concerted attempt is on to justify(?) Macaulay by stating that ,

Are we to keep the people of India ignorant in order that we may keep them submissive? Or do we think that we can give them knowledge without awakening ambition? Or do we mean to awaken ambition and to provide it with no legitimate vent? Who will answer any of these questions in the affirmative? Yet one of them must be answered in the affirmative, by every person who maintains that we ought permanently to exclude the natives from high office. I have no fears. The path of duty is plain before us: and it is also the path of wisdom, of national prosperity, of national honor.[See the full text here]”

What is the position?

Education and the English Empire in India

I feel that, for the good of India itself, the admission of natives to high office must be effected by slow degrees. But that, when the fulness of time is come, when the interest of India requires the change, we ought to refuse to make that change lest we should endanger our own power, this is a doctrine of which I cannot think without indignation. Governments, like men, may buy existence too dear. “Propter vitam vivendi perdere causas,” [“To lose the reason for living, for the sake of staying alive”] is a despicable policy both in individuals and in states. In the present case, such a policy would be not only despicable, but absurd. The mere extent of empire is not necessarily an advantage. To many governments it has been cumbersome; to some it has been fatal. It will be allowed by every statesman of our time that the prosperity of a community is made up of the prosperity of those who compose the community, and that it is the most childish ambition to covet dominion which adds to no man’s comfort or security. To the great trading nation, to the great manufacturing nation, no progress which any portion of the human race can make in knowledge, in taste for the conveniences of life, or in the wealth by which those conveniences are produced, can be matter of indifference. It is scarcely possible to calculate the benefits which we might derive from the diffusion of European civilisation among the vast population of the East. It would be, on the most selfish view of the case, far better for us that the people of India were well governed and independent of us, than ill governed and subject to us; that they were ruled by their own kings, but wearing our broadcloth, and working with our cutlery, than that they were performing their salams to English collectors and English magistrates, but were too ignorant to value, or too poor to buy, English manufactures. To trade with civilised men is infinitely more profitable than to govern savages. That would, indeed, be a doting wisdom, which, in order that India might remain a dependency, would make it an useless and costly dependency, which would keep a hundred millions of men from being our customers in order that they might continue to be our slaves.

Are we to keep the people of India ignorant in order that we may keep them submissive? Or do we think that we can give them knowledge without awakening ambition? Or do we mean to awaken ambition and to provide it with no legitimate vent? Who will answer any of these questions in the affirmative? Yet one of them must be answered in the affirmative, by every person who maintains that we ought permanently to exclude the natives from high office. 1 have no fears. The path of duty is plain before us: and it is also the path of wisdom, of national prosperity, of national honor.

From Thomas Babington Macaulay, “Speech in Parliament on the Government of India Bill, 10 July 1833,” Macaulay, Prose and Poetry, selected by G.M. Young (Cambridge, MA: Harvard University Press, 1957), pp. 716-18

I have no knowledge of either Sanscrit or Arabic.-But I have done what I could to form a correct estimate of their value. I have read translations of the most celebrated Arabic and Sanscrit works. I have conversed both here and at home with men distinguished by their proficiency in the Eastern tongues. I am quite ready to take the Oriental learning at the valuation of the Orientalists themselves. I have never found one among them who could deny that a single shelf of a good European library was worth the whole native literature of India and Arabia. The intrinsic superiority of the Western literature is, indeed, fully admitted by those members of the Committee who support the Oriental plan of education.

It will hardly be disputed, I suppose, that the department of literature in which the Eastern writers stand highest is poetry. And I certainly never met with any Orientalist who ventured to maintain that the Arabic and Sanscrit poetry could be compared to that of the great European nations. But when we pass from works of imagination to works in which facts are recorded, and general principles investigated, the superiority of the Europeans becomes absolutely immeasurable. It is, I believe, no exaggeration to say, that all the historical information which has been collected from all the books written in the Sanscrit language is less valuable than what may be found in the most paltry abridgements used at preparatory schools in England. In every branch of physical or moral philosophy, the relative position of the two nations is nearly the same.”

 

The apologists Macaulay claim that,

 

 “

Clearly, Macaulay was saying something directly opposite to what has been quoted as his!
There is indeed a clear reason why this distorted quote was invented. This is indeed RSS and its followers, who put words on Macaulay. I now know RSS even referred to English speaking Indians as ‘Children of Macaulay’! The quote above, passed on by my trusting friend, is a spoof, RSS trying to interpret what Macaulay might have meant. [I am sure those who did it knew that Macaulay also put Arabic on the same boat as Sanksrit]”
Macaulay on Indian Culture.

“I have traveled across the length and breadth of India and I have not seen one person who is a beggar, who is a thief. Such wealth I have seen in this country, such high moral values, people of such calibre, that I do not think we would ever conquer this country, unless we break the very backbone of this nation, which is her spiritual and cultural heritage, and, therefore, I propose that we replace her old and ancient education system, her culture, for if the Indians think that all that is foreign and English is good and greater than their own, they will lose their self-esteem, their native self-culture and they will become what we want them, a truly dominated nation.”

Now one can judge as to what are the intentions of Macaulay.
