Shastra Pujan at Dusshera :Modi’s worship of weapons during ‘Dusshera’ comes under attack

Posted by hinduexistence on September 30, 2009

INDIA-RELIGION-DUSHERRA-GUJARAT  

Christian Sonia Gandhi’s Congress and UPA want that Hindus should give up all the Weapons and Courage to be slave of  Christian & Muslims again. 

Ahmedabad: Chief Minister Narendra Modi may have relived an ancient Indian tradition during Dusshera but his worship of modern weapons like AK-47 and machine guns at his home during ‘Shastra Puja’ has come under attack from various groups in Gujarat.

Modi performed the ‘Shastra Puja’ at his home yesterday on the concluding day of Dusshera fetivities. Modern and sophisticated weapons of security personnel besides some swords were worshipped during the puja.

But a Modi aide said this is nothing unusual for the chief minister.

“Chief minister performs Shastra Puja every year and this year also he had performed the puja at his residence,” an official in the chief minister’s office said.

Utmost fan of Congress Chairperson, Mrs Sonia Gandhi (Sonia Maino, a Christian Preacher in India) and Party spokesperson Arjun Modhvadia said the ‘Shastra Puja’ by Modi was nothing but a publicity stunt and called it a violation of law.

“If it would not have been Modi and some other individual he would be in jail for violating law,” he added.

“This was just a publicity stunt of Modi and giving a photo opportunity for the press. Also it is against law as weapons have to be with its rightful owner and not to be displayed in public,” Modhvadia told agency.

But Such Idiot Modhvadia never objected Free Weapons in Muslim Processions, specially in Muharraum in the street, which caused communal riots in India many times. 

 
Jan Sangharsh Manch, convener Mukul Sinha who is working for the rights of riots victims, ridiculed Modi’s action and said, “In a democracy people have the right to be crazy.”
“It would be preferable if Modi could find a weapon to fight the swine flu rather than playing with sword which is not meant for him,” Sinha said.
 

 

Such Mukul Sinha and other agents of  ISI and anti national groups never pointed out the craze for Pan Islamisim in India or the intention of the some power to defuse the Hindu Strength by disarmament of Hindus and Deadly Arms in every Muslim House, Mosque and Madrasha  in order to make a Terrorist Hub in India for a total ethnic cleansing of  Hindus from India. What an Idea !!!

Yes, Hindus have every right to worship Weapons of all kinds and apply them to uproot any anti Indian, anti National, anti Hindu elements from India. This is rightly understood by Sri Narendra Modi. That should be the role model of every courageous Hindu. Bharat is not the land of some Non-sense, Adopted Gandhi Families. We have the tradition of   Chatrapati Sivaji, Maha Rana Pratap, Guru Teg Bahadur, Guru Govinda Singh, Kshudiram, Rajguru, Sukhdev, Rashbehari Bose, Bhagat Singh, Jatindranath, Binoy-Badal-Dinesh, Suryo Sen, Netaji Subhas and many others who tought the lesson to fight with arms. We can not ignore the way of Veer Savarkar.. “militarized the Hindudom.”

Sri Narendra Modi just honoured the tradition of India as Narendra Modi prays to gun down the terrorists in India.

Narendra Modi prays to guns

NDTV Correspondent, Tuesday September 29, 2009, Gandhinagar

 See Videohttp://www.ndtv.com/news/india/narendra_modi_worships_assault_guns.php

 For two hours, he sat, his head bowed in prayer. His deities at this ceremony: guns, AK series rifles, swords, axes. Even a primitive club or two.

Narendra Modi’s shastra puja threatens to launch him into a brand-new controversy.  Shastra puja is usually performed on the last day of Navratra, known as Vijay Dashami.  Modi’s took place at his official residence in Gandhinagar.  His security and senior police officers stood by, unarmed. Their guns were reportedly part of the puja.

Shastra puja is usually offered by those who traditionally carry weapons – soldiers, policemen,  Rajputs.  But Modi is a civilian and so some question whether it’s appropriate.  Those upset allegedly include senior National Security Guard personnel, who point out that at no point should their men be required to hand over their arms to anyone.

But these correspondents never be interested to discussed about  Narendra Modi’s Gujrat which is most secured state for the Muslims as per the opinion of the National Security Commission.
  
It is not possible for common Hindus in India to have Ak-47 like Narendra Modi. But they can keep some Trishul of Mahadeva, Danush-Van of Ramchandra, Khadga ( Spl. Chopper) of Maha Kali, Sword of  Rana Chandi and Shastras ( Shell Weapons like Bombs) included in the Dash Praharan of Maa Durga in their homes very easily. Hindus without Warrior Power can not survive any way. No Congress, No Communists, No BJP, No Bahujan or Samajvdi will  rescue Hindus in the time of  war with the anti Hindu elements. Hindus should take own responsibility to ensure their own security. And it can not be possible without ARMS and POWER.
 
Every Hindu should possess some ARMs as per their religious tradition. They must worship Weapons and ensure the Power to struggle for existence. Congratulations Sri Modi.
..

Intolerant Opportunist fanatics via judicial pseudo secularism/terrorism are the cause of defeat to idealistic Hindus : Your are in War Front, Fight and Win.

~ by Jogesh Saxena

Combating terrorism, now being discredited by intolerant fanatics and opportunists politician, under whom ,the elite citizen, responsible for the executive functioning and the Investigating agencies responsible to protect the sovereign power of the State are knee down in anticipation of their posting for greasing their palm. This is the greatest problem of the world. It has become the threat to the Nations, who encouraged it during the process of the struggle of cold war, with fellow nation. The god of hated filled cult having its mandate to get the rid of the world of proclaimed “infidels” and “heretics”, are themselves struggling against their own weaknesses The kingdom of Arabia was formulated on the principles, that this world rejected all type of injustice, violence, breach of peace, bloodshed, murder and plunder. Jihad was defined after the battle of Bard. It is written in the “Kitbag al Tauhid”. The tomb of Prophet Muhammad was virtually destroyed in 1803 at Medina and People Stripped the Kaba at Makah.

These people were declared Blasphemous. Virtually “Jihad”, which was earlier known as the struggle against oppression and rather a struggle against their own weakness, has started combating against their own people. There was the reformation. People disallowed ceremonies for marriage and death. They prohibited the worship of the saints, adorning of graves, tomb and monuments. They prohibited and provided the restriction upon holding religious processions, sharing art, music and dance and provided the proper place to women as their god only exposes fickleness of their minds. Most of the Muslim peers are flourishing, because of Hindus only, and will be shut if Hindus stop visiting them. The mosquitoes are flying in the air to drag the blood from the body of the defenseless Non violent citizen. Mosquitoes, even lesser in number, will suck the blood of Majority. They become the scorpions, if the number of carnivorous human being are proportionately increased to insufficient numbers. These people are viper snake converted to Cobra. The number of these poisonous reptiles Increased.

Even, if they increased in quarter to the number of other community, they become pythons. Stop them from doing So in India, otherwise we will be buttered, as Hindus are Buttered in Bangladesh, Malaysia and Pakistan. The submissive nature of the Hindus is evident even today, even a single person of other faiths Hindus are credulous by nature. They simply believed what others said without suspecting the ulterior designs of the enemy. There were occasions when the idealist Hindu rulers sincerely honored a treaty or ceasefire in war but the crook enemy took undue advantage of their credulousness and captured them. If there were Jai Chands in medieval times, there are Laloos, Paswans, Mulayams, Arjuns in this era, who, for their momentary selfish motives, are selling the interests of the Hindus in the name of secularism without realizing the irreparable loss being caused by them to their community. Gandhi’s secularism always aimed at destruction of Hindus at the hands of Muslims. Paswan’s secularism advocates a Muslim Chief-Minister in Bihar. Arjun’s secularism believes in distorting our history. Numerous such pseudo secularists have always been active to destroy the Hindus. Making films on Hindu Gods & Goddesses causes irreparable harm to the faith.

Human beings personifying Hindu Gods & Goddesses, pasteurization of vulgar scenes/songs in temples, showing Hindu Gods & Goddesses smoking in ad films only lowers their respect in the eyes of people. . Inviting censure of Sikhs by films like “Sava Lakh Se Ek Ladaoon”, and “Jo Bole So Nihal” are live examples of the concern of the Sikh community for their gurus, which regretfully is missing in the attitude of the Hindus. The beggars wearing masks of Hindu Gods and posing as Gods for begging in bazaars & streets definitely reduces obeisance for the Gods. The Muslim invaders exercised every atrocity on the native Hindus. They attacked us. They looted wealth, slaughtered innocent people, converted Hindus to Islam at the point of sword. They kidnapped our women and raped them with pride. They broke temples and erected mosques over them. They even decked idols of those temples in the stairs to humiliate Hindus.

Famous historian late sri P.N. Oak claims that the so called Muslim monuments in India were originally the Hindu buildings. The Muslim invaders plundered them, captured them, broke them, sacrilege them and converted them into Muslim monuments. The Hindus, instead of considering them a stigma on the National honor take pride in calling them national monuments. Millions of rupees are spent on their maintenance. Some have been given the status of heritage buildings. A community of self honor would never accept such humiliation like this It is marriage within consanguinity. Though marriage within consanguinity is against Hindu marriage Act, but the custom overrides the statutory provisions. This weakens the uniformity of the custom at national level and makes us a subject of ridicule by others.

I have seen Sikh leadership fighting collectively on different issues like Delhi riots, turban issue in France, kirpaan issue in Sweden, Santa-Banta (ridiculing cartoons) issue in Mumbai, turban-scanning issue in America. All the Sikh leaders irrespective of their political affiliation fought it collectively. Similarly, Prophet Mohammed’s picture (cartoon) in a Danish newspaper attracted protest from Muslims all over the world. Conversely, you can amply see Hindu leaders neutralising efforts of their own brothers without doing something for Hindu welfare and blaming of violating secularism. It is nothing but a cheap effort to earn momentary & transient acclaim from others. On the contrary, the leaders of other faiths are fighting collective, forgetting their political differences, definitely fetches them tangible results. Mulayam’s secularism impels him declare holiday in U.P. on last Friday of Ramjan. Mulayam, Pasvan throwing Iftaar parties to Muslims and wearing Muslim caps on their heads shamelessly is the burning example of pseudo secularism. 

Conversion of Bangladesh from a secularist to an Islamic nation in 1979 did not perturb these secularists, nor did the planned elimination of Hindus in Bangladesh and Pakistan caused qualms of conscience to them. Now the only Nepal Hindu Country is Extinguished. If the journalist has started hurling the shoe on the face of Union Home Minister. It is the beginning of retaliating of the outrage emotion of the people to thwart the govt. , which is continuing by sheer opportunism and will perish it existences, as the combating the Islamic violence will come to an end. At least Mr. Jagdish Titaler and mr. Shajjan have been eliminated from the Zone of the fight in this battle by their field set up by their own guardian, for whom these criminals participated in Genocide and Murder of Khalsa Akhali People.

All the members of the court are considered as wounded, where justice is found wounded with inequity, and judges do not extract the dart of inequity from justice or remove its blot and destroy inequity, in other words where the innocent are not respected and the criminal are not punished. A virtuous and just person should never enter a court and when he does so, he should speak the truth; he who holds his tongue on seeing injustice done, or speaks contrary to truth and justice, is the greatest sinner .Justice destroyed, destroys its destroyer; and justice preserved, preserves its preserver. Hence, never destroy justice , lest being destroyed, it should destroy thee. In this world justice or righteousness alone is man’s friend that goes with him after death. All other things or companions part on the destruction of the body and he is detached from all company. But the company of justice is never cut off. When injustice is done in the government court out of partiality, it is divided into four parts of which one is shared by the criminal or doer of injustice , the second by the witness, the third by the judges, and the fourth by the president king of an unjust court. Legal justice , with a humane mission, must update itself to legitimize progressive urges, discern the reality of social changes and design its delivery system, so as to obviate the dominance of the Proletariat by the accelerate people’s access to effective., limitative justice. The contemporary command of social justice, which is also the socio-economic demand of the common people, is that the prevalent forensic astigmatism shall be corrected by sloughing off archaic, arcane authoritarian procedures which often spawn the paradox of a wealth of abuses and a poverty of access vis-à-vis institutions of legal justice.

The bar and the bench are meant to provide mutual assistance for dispensing the justice. A prominent Bar is always considered to be of utmost requirement for imparting the duties assigned to the Judge, while deciding the case before him. The opportunist Lawyers always get their position in the matter of Elevations of the Supreme Court and High Court Judges. How , one may forget the Incident of the Supersession of the three Judges, When Justice A. N. Ray was elevated as Chief Justice of India by Smt. Indira Gandhi. She purposely restricted the free speech of Indian Hindus, who were subjected to atrocities by the fundamentalists Muslims and ultimately the Suppression of the Right of free expression, Prohibition against resurrections and Suppression of the Right of Life came into Picture. It was the period worst than the period of British Rule, When at least Hindus were given their due protection against atrocities committed by Muslims and by Hindus upon the weaker Section Of Society.

How one can forget the humiliation suffered by Justice H.R. Khana for giving the minority Judgment in MISA preventive detention matter pertaining to ADM Jabalpur case .Judicial activism was based upon accountability of the Executive action in the State. This was increased during the period , when Judges Of High Integrity, and Potentials were being elevated to the Bench. It was just after taken over the process of selection of Judges by The collegiums of The Judiciary. The system of Give And Take In the process of the Elevation Started. It was during the period of adorning the crown by the Judge of the particular religion, that 20 judges of insignificant age were elevated with the Idea of promoting the Jihad in the arena of the Judiciary also. Judicial activism abrogated just after their elevation. It has been finally came to an end.

It is well known that accountability is not wanted by the criminals and when the foundation of their religion are it self based upon sex and crime, how does this situation , which promoted the deception by falsehood, cheating, subjugation and abrogation of the means of innocent citizen for promoting Darul E Islam may not be liken by them. Why these individual will invite the risk to have their Transparency and accountability. There was the mission with political agenda to capture the entire world in dominance of a particular religion, while Hindu judges remain satisfied with their lust for greed, power, favoritism and Corruption. Thus the beginning of opportunism has gone to the extend that Kashmir Brahmins, who were uprooted from their motherland, but their representative, after emergence of Gandhi- Nehru Nexus, for being them elevated to supreme Court and High Court of Delhi, have now started declaring that Aurangzeb was the Secular and the painting of M. F. Hussein depicting the portraits of Ma Durga, Ma Swarswati, Ma Parvati, Mata Laxmi and Even Naked Bharat Mata.

The chapter of Judicial activism, which was once started by the esteem respected Judges of Supreme Court was not only eroded, but the Judgment given BY Justice Kuldeep Singh in Smt. Sheila Dixit, Mr. Kamal Nath cases ( In reM.C. Mehta Motal – Bias River Water Diversion were Reviewed by these Justices. . Smt. Indira Gandhi had taken the license to denounce the authority of Comptroller and accountant General by getting the Expenditure disproportionate to its pre audit limit, which was not changed. Now the Government is ruled by alien power. Sonia Gandhi has taken the command in her hand to mis-utilization the investigating agency of Central Bureau Of Investigation to get her political empire remain intact, even if no confidence motion passed by majority of political party. Now the Nation is Governed without any Ethics, that is , if you Show me the man, I will make a Law to benefit him.

The judicial Activism is Over. The people are ruled by alien power. They can not Combat Islamic Jihad. Law does not talk with Justness. There is no accountability. Judges are elevated, having no essential qualification, which is based upon rational classification. Opportunists are elevated. Supreme Court Stay the entire proceedings, even beyond the scope of the adjudication placed before Them. Justice Nirmal Yadav elevated, who are indulged in briary . Number of Judges remained involved in Provident Fund Scam, but who has been resigned till yet. This idea may promote us of secularist Time and again Commissions have been constituted to convict, by hook or crook, the accused of the 1984 Delhi riots. It is the matter of disgraceful event in the history of Judicial accountability, that Justice, U. C. Banerjee may declare that there was no incident of Godhra Burning of Ram Kar Sevak and there after , even after the acquittal of the innocent people in Post Godhra Violence, Which Provoked on Account Of the Arson Of Godhra Mass Burning , the further trial in 2002 Gujarat riots even after their acquittal by the courts of law. On the other hand, terrorists like Wassan Singh, Zaffarwal and Jagjit Singh Chauhan deserving severe punishment have gone scot-free for want of proof and it did not impel any secularist to deplore such acquittal and seek re-trial.

 Mushrooming madrasas in the country indulging in anti-Indian activities. This does not worry these secularists but they have the audacity to term the activities of RSS and VHP as anti-nationalists. For them, religion-based reservation for the Muslims in AMU is not an anti-national act, but the alleged discrimination in relief-distribution to the quake-hit in Bhuj surely perturbs these secularists. 5% reservation for Muslims in A.P. awaiting emulation by Bihar and many other State Governments is another burning example of their secularism. Pampering the Muslims at the cost of the Hindus is an unpardonable sin, which cannot be forgiven by any rational and nationalist Indian. It is nothing but a political gimmickry for appeasement of Muslims to garner their votes, which has rendered the Hindus orphans in their own land. The coming generations of ours are being recklessly thrown to a disadvantageous position. The virtual slavery is inevitable for us. The irony is that their secularism erupts only when the interests of the non-Hindus are involved. Thousands of Hindus being murdered in Mopla and Naokhali riots before partition, lakhs of Hindus being butchered and cores suffering displacement during partition in 1947 did not make a dint on any of these secularists.

Thousands of Hindus being slain in Punjab and Jammu & Kashmir and lakhs are being rendered refugees in their own motherland. This did not shake the soul of the secularists. Conversion of Bangladesh from a secularist to an Islamic nation in 1979 did not perturb these secularist, nor did the planned elimination of Hindus in Bangladesh and Pakistan caused qualms of conscience to them. The kar-sewaks burnt alive in Godhra. This doesn’t make any difference to these secularists, but its reaction in the form of Gujarat riots is termed as a “blot” on humanity and the heads are “lowered in shame”. Muslim invaders looted & demolished thousands of temples and erected mosques over them, but redeeming Ram Temple from underneath Babri mosque is the “blackest day” in their life Secularism (or pseudo-secularism?) has done immeasurable harm to Hinduism. The selfish Hindu leadership, both religious & political, is always eager to compromise the interest of Hindus for transient gains, in the name of secularism, without realizing the harm caused to the religion in the long run. Is this secularism not applicable to Muslims? Never does a Muslim ever talk of respect to the other faiths. Hindus are always eager to appease the other communities (Muslims, Christians etc.) by following their customs/rituals. We may justify it as secularism, but actually it reflects our wavering faith in our own Gods and Goddesses. On the contrary, rarely is a follower of other faiths seen in our temples or practicing our rituals.

The Hindus are not ready to bear pain involved in fighting for their own rights and always look towards others to fight for them. This philosophy has made us cowards to such an extent that we did not retaliate, even the invaders, who attacked us in our homeland. Just a handful of Muslim invaders attacked us, captured us, slew us, converted many to Islam, outraged the modesty of our women, broke our temples and used every possible atrocity to destroy Hinduism, but the philosophy of non-violence made the Hindus surrender every where. The Hindus, who believe always in the existence of Gods and Goddesses as the symbolic representation of their faith in the form of worshiping of trees meant for their own protection of life as synonymous to god like peepal, banyan, banana, tulsi and jand, tamarind, kalamba etc, as all having medicinal values and their cultural triggers. Their zoolatry is in worship to the different form of animals, as their existence is required to maintain Eco- Environment- Ecological Balance for survival of Human Race. Lack of faith has seriously affected unity among the Hindus and has lead to disorganization and weakening of the Hinduism. On thousands of occasions, Hindus have miserably failed to protect the respect of their Gods and Goddesses and religious This makes us unorganized and leads to lack of consensus on trivial issues like dates of Hindu festivals. Our religious scholars seldom agree on single date for festivals leading to celebration of festivals on different dates. This dilutes the devotion & enthusiasm and also impels a sense of ridicule for our religion in the minds of others. This is solely because of non-availability of a centralized religious command. This gave the others an excuse to shy away from the duty to sacrifice for the country. Whenever there was any attack, it was the Kshatriyas, who were to face the brunt. Many a time, their short number or non-availability of fighter-Kshatriyas, lead us to their defeat in wars.

ombutton234So manifest the Khastra Dharma ( Warrior Power ) within Us and Rule this World of Aryans. Krinantvu Viswa Aryam !! Make this World of Aryans.

ombutton234If they claim that this world belongs to Christians and Muslims, WHY  IT  IS  NOT  FOR  HINDUS ??  Let us make a HINDU WORLD !!!

Durga idol is stolen, Durga idols are broken, Durga Puja Stopped by High Court. What is the meaning of Worship of Power in Durga Puja by Hindus ?

Muslim thief caught stealing silver idol of goddess Durga from Mumbai temple

Idol thief flags a ride to prison
Vijay V Singh, TNN 23 September 2009

MUMBAI: Call it divine intervention. A man, who stole a silver idol of goddess Durga worth lakhs of rupees from a temple in Mumbai’s Jogeshwari  (East), hired an autorickshaw as his getaway vehicle. Only the auto driver was a local, who had prayed at the same idol’s feet a hundred times. The driver drove the vehicle straight to a posse of policemen.

Qudir Shaikh carried out the theft at the Ambe-Mata temple in Gandhi Nagar on Friday evening. He removed his footwear outside the temple and went in like a devotee and then waited for some time till he was the only person inside (besides the half-blind 90-year-old temple priest). Shaikh then quietly picked up the 5-kg silver idol, covered it partially inside his clothes and slipped out.

But the idol proved too heavy to be lugged around and Shaikh was forced to hire an autorickshaw, whose driver proved to be his nemesis. Qadir told autorickshaw driver Harish Gupta that he would give him Rs 50 if he just took him out of the area quickly. Something about his passenger and his strange request, however, raised Gupta’s suspicion.

Meghwadi police station senior inspector Shivajirao Kolekar said: ‘‘The driver then saw Shaikh carrying an idol that looked familiar.’’ Gupta followed Shaikh’s directions, but did not stop till he saw some policemen on duty. The cops immediately arrested Shaikh and recovered the stolen idol from him. When the policemen reached Meghwadi police station along with Shaikh, they found several people of Hanuman Nagar were already there to file a complaint about the missing idol. They were upset as they were busy preparing for Durga Puja and said the theft could not have come at a worse time.

Additional commissioner (west) Amitabh Gupta praised Gupta for his swift action.

Broken Images of Durga Puja….Tension grown in Khardaha

mail4 mail1 mail2 mail5

mail7 mail6 mail8 mail3

Barrack pore, West Bengal, India : Only the Idol of  Goddess Durga remains intact. But other idols of  her children are ruthlessly damaged. Some of them were seen without hands, some of them are hacked to neck. In Khardah in Barrackpore sub-division, tension raised to see such an unprecedented iconoclast work in a Public Durga Puja Pandal in the early morning. Police reached to the spot immediately to check the spreading of tension. But the rituals are continued in the auspicious pitcher of Devi ( Mangal Ghat of Devi ). The Organisers of the Puja Committee under the banner of Boys Club of P.K. Biswas Road told to the representative of Hindu Existence that till Friday Midnight the normalcy was uninterrupted, but perhaps in the early hours of  Mahashtami i.e. on 26th Sept, the anti Hindu miscreant did this highly condemnable work unnoticed. All the club members and the visitors were thronged till mid night of Maha Saptami. The Organisers did not care for  any night guard in fact. In Saturday early morning the local residents found the broken images of Lakshmi, Swaraswati, Kartik, Ganesh and the images of Lord Rama, Lakshmana and Hanuman in a nearby puja place.

The local area is of a mixed in nature. For a political gain no political party did not show any pro-activeness to arrest the culprits. The local mail9Hindus in morose and did a ‘prayaschitta’ > holy purification rather than to search the culprits to punish them. The Muslims of the area remain silent and some of them (local shop keepers, rickshaw pullers coming illegally from Bangladesh) expressed their religious belief against idolatry. They do not like to be sympathetic in this regard. The Left Parties in the local level think that all these are out of local disputes between different clubs and puja committees. But the Police and the local Administration are totally unsuccessful to keep security measures in Hindu Pujas in this specific case.

Sri Asoke Kumar Balmiki, local councillor of Khardaha Municipality told Hindu Existence not to highlight this matter anymore. But he is not sure whether the unidentified miscreants are Muslims or not. After Vijoya Dashami he may investigate the matter otherwise. He appealed to everybody not to lose the festive mood any way in this puja ceremony.

Kolkata High Court stopped Dura Puja older than 25 years.

Justice  Sanjeeb Bannerjee ordered on 8th Sept, 2009 to stop a 25 years Old Durga Puja in Belpukur Primary Health Centre (PHC) Premises organised by the local Hindus over than two decades out of a writ petition vide WP No. 7349 of 2009 filed in Kolkata High Court by some Sujauddin Molla on behalf of Belpukur Uktia Masjid Committee.

In March 2009 in Belpukur in South 24 Parganas, some 60 Kilometer southern from Kolkata, a tension overwhelmed in the adjacent area for organising a Nabi Divas( Birth Day Celebration of Hazarat Mahammad) by muslims from far villages  in a  Hindu Majority area and over the very spot of conventional Durga Puja over the years. Eventually the Durga Puja of the local Hindus have been taking place in the Belpukur Hospital (PHC) premises which was donated by some Hindus for the development of rural health situation of that area. One dedicated residential Hindu Doctor of that PHC started the Durga Puja in 1975 so that the down trodden Hindu villagers can participate in their Largest Puja Ceremony. This initiated a joy and happiness among the villagers without any dispute and continued till 2008. Afterwards the Businessmen Association of  Belpukur sponsored the Puja on their own.

But the Anti Hindu Muslim Fundamentalist like Sujauddin and others hacked  a notorious plan to organise a Islamic Conference on Navi Divas to propagate Islam and raise a tension to frighten the Hindu Community and Businessmen with in a exclusive Hindu majority area, where there is no need a Islamic Meeting anyway. Under a local protest by the Hindus of  Belpukur, the CPIM supported Muslim Miscreants found unsuccessful for that time being.

kolkathighcourtseaofmomvp6But the Fundamental Muslims of  Belpukur contacted Imam Barkati of  Tipu Sultan Masjid who announced a 5 Lakh rupee incentive to be an able murderer of  Taslima Nasrin. Barkati sent them to Idris Ali, Advocate and   a communal propagator of  21 Nov.2007  Kolkata Riot, who generally instigate the communal Muslims in West Bengal with Taha Siddique of Furfura Sherriff. On behalf of Muslims of outer Belpukur (Hindu Village) Mr. Idris Ali persuaded the case in Kolkata High Court in favour of Muslims to stop the Durga Puja in a Hindu Area, from a place which was donated by some Hindus to the Govt.  Authority to establish a Hospital for everybody, for every Hindu, Muslim or Christians.

Justice Sanjeeb Banerjee did a great job by stopping an old Durga Puja in a Hindu area in a premises which was earlier possessed by some social Hindus dedicated for development for society, but never thought that they would possibly restricted to perform their ancestral rituals like Durga Puja. Justice Banerjee relied upon such a lawyer who was the master mind to drive away Taslima Nasrin from Kolkata as many media persons opined in their column.

As per available reports, Justice Banerjee directed the Police authority to stop all religious activities in all Hospital premises. But Justice Banerjee knows fully well that Hindus will be affected by this order only as there is no authority or power like ‘Sanjeeba Bonnerjee’ will be able to stop muslim religious activities within Many Hospital Premises including big Muslim Majars, Mosques, Tombs and Pir Dargha within PG Hospital Kolkata, Calcutta Medical College & Hospital, R.G. Kar Medical College or anywhere. Does Mr. Banerjee know that the Muslim Majars, Mosques etc in Kolkata and other Hospitals are utilised as centre for various health rackets and muslim anti socials ? But some Temples in these Hospital Premises are utilised as the resting places for the street dogs at night time.

It is noticed that the Fundamental Muslims in West Bengal are now trying to increase the number of Muslim Celebrations in Hindu areas and trying to stop Swaraswati Pujas in School – Colleges and other Pujas from Public Places. Incidentally maximum Public Places, Schools, Colleges, Hospitals, Other Institutions are erected upon places donated by Hindu Persons Dedicated for Social Causes. But they are/were always reluctant to be organised to possess their Hindu Rights.

From a meticulous analysis it is found that the Muslims in India particularly in West Bengal wants immediate clash with unorganised Hindus and put many impedements to Hindu Religious Rights by throwing severed Cow limbs, breaking Hindu Idols, stopping Hindu Rituals like beating Drums, bells etc., stopping the Hindu processions, stopping the ‘Hari Dhwani’ (Chanting the name of Lord Hari) in the funeral journey and legal resistance upon Hindu Ceremonies. 

In this situation what can Hindu Do all about?

Yes do not perform Dharma meaninglessly. Please Join the War of Maha Bharata. Performing Dharma is a War and Sadhna to Save Dharma. Join this War. And take the weapons from the hands of Hindu Gods and Goddess to win this fight against the Ashura- Devils, may be the Muslims or Christians or the Culprit Hindus.  

Untill Qudir Shaikh in Gandhinagar Mumbai, Sujauddin of Belpukur or Unidentified iconoclast in Khardah are punished severely, what is the meaning of Durgapuja by Hindus ?????

Durga Puja in Moscow. Religion in Red City.

Moscow celebrates Durga Puja for 20th time

Agencies Tags : Durga Puja Posted: Saturday , Sep 26, 2009 at 1708 hrs Moscow: http://www.indianexpress.com/news/moscow-celebrates-durga-puja-for-20th-time/521930/

The Russian capital city Moscow is celebrating Durga Puja for the 20th time in a row this year as more and more Russians are joining the Indian community in the festivities.

It was still the Soviet Union, with curbs on public celebration of religious festivities, when in 1989 enthusiasts came together to make the Puja dream in Moscow a reality.

To bypass the Soviet rules, the first Durga puja was organised in a local House of Culture as an Indian cultural event and two priests were specially flown in from Calcutta.

Over the past 20 years after changing several venues for almost last decade, Durga Puja is annually held in the Inter-Club of the Peoples’ Friendship University, where most of the students from India and Bangladesh study.

“Our first Puja was inaugurated by Swami Lokeswarananda of Ramakrishna Mission. Since then Swami Jyotirupananda who is the founder of Moscow Ramakrishna Math has been conducting our puja and is the president of our Moscow Durga Puja Committee,” Debasmita Moulick of Moscow Durga Puja Committee said.

Down the Memory Lane……. 17th Durga Puja at Moscow in 2006.

 The significance of the image

Every year in autumn Hindus worship the Divine Mother Durga in a beautifully decorated image made of different materials like earth, straw, cloths etc. framed in a structure of bamboo and wood. At times images are made of light materials of special water plants or the like. The ten handed Durga in the form of a warrior woman fighting with a demon called Mahisasura and standing on her pet lion is seen mostly in the eastern part of India while in the western part of India she is seen even with eight hands on a tiger. These animals are symbols of strength. To get the complete picture of the worship we see the goddess Lakshmi standing on her right side and goddess Saraswati on the left. Below seated on the right Ganesha with elephant head, the god of success; and Kartikeya, the chief commander of divine army on the left. The primordial energy continuously creating, sustaining and destroying the universe is called Shakti. Mother Durga represents that universal energy and every thing in the universe is her manifestation only. She is the only Reality (God in the form of Mother). In the scripture we find she told to the demon Shumbha, “I am the only one in the universe, who else is there the second one apart from me?” Being the universal energy she is formless and infinite. But she has the power to

take that form which her earnest devotee prays for according to his desire. Sages of India, in their super conscious state saw her divine form and described her various forms. These sages were philosophers also. So they wanted her such forms, which symbolically signified her mighty energy. She in the form of energy is everywhere in all the ten directions. So she is ten handed with different arms in hands representing all types of energy. Some times we see some deity with four hands or eight hands, all these signified all directions, everywhere is their presence. Mother Durga is to destroy evil for her children and protect the good. This is shown by the battle with the demon. She fulfils all kinds of wishes of her devotees. But the devotees who are particular about wealth and beauty, for them she took the form of her daughter Lakshmi with an owl as her carrier. If you want to protect your wealth you must have a night watchman. The owl represents this. Another daughter Saraswati, bestows learning. Veena in her hand represents all kinds of arts. Her carrier is the swan signifying that for acquiring knowledge you are to take the essence out of the inessentials. A swan is said in mythology that it can take milk separating water from it. Mother Durga also takes the form of her son Ganesha, the god of success and affluence. He represents as the god of masses. If you need to feed the masses, a great quantity of food is needed. So lord Ganesha has a big belly. Elephant head signifies that a big body and power is there but it needs calmness of an elephant to attain success in business or any other undertaking. His carrier is the mouse, which stores up food in a hole collecting diligently corns from the fields. Kartikeya, the son of the Mother Durga is seated on a beautiful peacock He is the general of the divine army representing strength and swiftness and a giver of progeny. Hindus worship the Divine Mother Durga devotedly for if she is pleased she can bestow ail these desirables and finally leads one to liberation from the bondage of the world.

 A brief account of the story of Devi Durga according to Indian mythology

Mahishasura, the king of Demons, was once granted a boon by Lord Shiva. Unfortunately the new found power went to his head and he started tyrannizing heaven and its inhabitants. The gods, scared and powerless to counter this tyranny, requested Lord Brahma, Lord Vishnu and Lord Shiva to annihilate Mahishashura. In answer to this prayer the three great gods combined their divine powers in the shape of a woman – the goddess Durga. This powerful goddess married Lord Shiva and started preparing herself for her battle with Mahishashura. The gods helped her by arming her with different weapons, one for each of her ten arms.

Durga, Durgotinashini, goddess of deliverance, emerged victorious in her battle with Mahishashura, finally killing him. Peace was restored in heaven and the gods happy. Scriptures detail the mode of her journey. This year the Goddess makes her journey to earth on the horse (Ghotak) and her departure on a swing (Dola). Worshipping Devi Durga is a time-worn tradition. The Puranas reveal that king Suratha, used to worship the goddess Durga in spring – the puja becoming known as Basanti Puja. This tradition has changed since the time Shri Rama hastily worshipped her just before rescuing Sita from Ravana. The time was autumn and the month Ashwin, not in keeping with earlier tradition at all. So it was called ’Akal Bodhan’ (Untimely Worship). Over the years, this Akal Bodhan has become the tradition and in Bengal, Durga Puja continues to be celebrated in the month of Ashwin. In Bengal, goddess Durga is worshipped as a mother rather than the goddess of supreme power.

 Maha-Shashti: The sixth day of the moon when Goddess Durga is welcomed with fanfare and gusto. ’Bodhon’ rituals are ferformed when the face of Ma Durga is unveiled.

Maha-Saptami: The first day of Durga puja; commencement of rituals; predawn bathing of ’Kola Bow’.

Maha-Ashtami: The most important day of Durga Puja; celebrating Ma Durga’s victory over Mahishasur; devotees recite the mantras and offer flowers to Devi Durga (pushpanjali) and pray for her blessings; rituals of animal sacrifices; animals are now substituted with ’chalkumro’ (type of pumpkin), cucumber and banana.

Maha-Nabami: The last day of Durga Puja; commencement of ’Sandhi Puja’. Nabami Bhog…Goddess Durga is offered food, which is later distributed among the devotees.

“Sandhi puja” (108 ’Dip’ lighted): The end moment of Ashtami and the beginning of Nabami is the time for Sandhi Puja. At this time Devi Durga transformed into Devi Camunda to kill the Mahishasura (the Buffalo Demon).

Bijoya-Dashami: The day when Goddess Durga accompanied with her children sets for Kailash, her husband’s abode. With a heavy heart the Bengalis immerse the clay idol of Durga in the sacred Ganges bidding her goodbye and earnestly waiting to see her again the next year.
_42153734_durga_ap416b
“Sindur Khela” (vermillion game): A major event of Dashami. Married women apply vermilion to each other and greet each other with sweets. It is in the evening when Goddess Durga is immersed Bengalis greet each other with bijoya greetings and men follow the customary ’Kolakuli’ (embrace each other).

The information from site: http://www.moscowdurgapuja.org/schedule.html

Durga Puja is the most important festival of Bengalis. Durga Puja is celebrated with joy all over India, especially West Bengal in worship of Goddess Durga. Singing, dancing, sweets & gaiety are an integral part of the Durga Pooja Festival. People send Durga Puja Gifts to dear ones and express good wishes. Durga Puja, the festival of Bengalis is the worship of ’Shakti’ or the divine power. Most of the religious celebrations in the world have legends surrounding them. The fables are generally the fight between the evil and the good, the dark forces eventually succumbing to the divine. Worship of Goddess Durga is based on myths where Durga symbolizes the divine power.

 ACCORDING TO THE INDIAN MYTHOLOGY

Mahishasura, the king of Asuras, through years of austerities, was once granted a boon by Lord Bramha, that no man or deity would be able to kill him. The immense power filled in him the urge to rule over the world. He started to terrorize heaven and the inhabitants. He pervaded the world with his battalion of Asuras and plundered and ruthlessly killed the people. Chaos and anarchy reigned. Gods were driven from heaven and Mahishasura usurped the throne.The Gods scared and unable to combat him, requested Lord Shiva, Lord Bramha, Lord Vishnu to stop Mahishasura’s tyranny. In answer, the three Gods combined their divine energy and summoned up a feminine form so brilliantly glaring that it illuminated the heavens. This combined power fell on the residence of Sage Kattyana in the krishna chaturdashi (fourteenth day of new moon) in the month of Ashwin (September-October). From the glow emerged Devi Durga, a beautiful yellow woman with ten arms riding a lion. Despite her grace she bore a menacing expression, for Durga was born to kill. Fully grown and armed by the gods, beautiful Durga was named “Kattyani” as she is born in the ashram of sage Kattyana. The sage worshipped her for sukla saptami, asthami and nabami tithi then on the tithi of Dashami she killed Masishasura. She was sent forth against Mahishasura armed by symbols of divine power; Vishnu’s discus; Shiva’s trident; Varuna’s conchshell; Agni’s flaming dart; Vayu’s bow; Surya’s quiver and arrow; Yama’s iron rod; Indra’s thunderbolt; Kubera’s club and a garland of snakes from Shesha and a lion as a charger from Himalayas. A fierce battle took place. Finally when Mahishasura in the guise of a buffalo charged against Durga, the Devi beheaded the buffalo and from it emerge Mahishasura in his original form. Durga pierced his chest with the trident and relieved the world from the evil power. That is why she is ’Durgatinashini Durga’, our mother goddess who destroys the evil, protects her devotees and establishes peace and prosperity on earth.

We worship Durga as the mother goddess, the epitome of ’Shakti’ (divine power), to deliver us from the evil and bring peace and prosperity in our lives. But the most interesting part of Durga Puja is that, instead of placing Durga on a high alter and worshipping her from a distance the Bengalis embrace her in their hearts and make her an inseparable member of the family. We welcome Durga to the earth as our daughter who comes at her parents’ home for her annual visits.

Durga stays for four days-Shashti, Saptami, Ashtami and Nabami along with her children, Ganesha, Laxmi, Kartik and Saraswati and sets for her husband’s abode on Vijaya Dashami.

Durga’s mode of journey to the earth is detailed in scriptures. The modes, an elephant, a horse, palanquin, boat all signify luck or omen which influence the life on earth. The elephant signifies prosperity and good harvest while journey on a horse back indicates drought, a palanquin spells wide spread epidemic and the boat suggests flood and misery.
The worship of Devi Durga in the month of October however owes its origin to Krittibas Ojha’s “Ramayana”. Sree Rama hastily worships Durga,the goddess of ’Shakti’, just before he sets for Lanka to rescue Sita from Ravana. According to Puranas, King Suratha, used to worship the goddess Durga in spring. Thus Durga Puja was also known as Basanti Puja. But Rama prepones the Puja and worships the Devi in autumn and that is why it is known as ’Akal Bodhon’ or untimely worship. Over the years, this Akal Bodhon has become the tradition among Bengalis (Bangalis) and in Bengal.

Hindus in Bangladesh worship Goddess Durga and celebrates Sharadoutsav through many hazards. Numbers of Durga Puja have been decreased remarkably.

Posted by hinduexistence on September 25, 2009

Durga

This year the Bangladeshi Hindus completed their long preparation for observing their greatest Puja Festival according to their Bengali tradition in the autumn overcoming many impediments and obstacles put by the frenzy muslims and fundamentalist political parties.

Though the highest Offices of the President and tha Prime Minister of Bangladesh have conveyed their good wishes to all hindu minorities in Bangladesh in this occasion of Durga Puja and Sharadoutsav, many reports came in regarding stopping of  Durga Puja by Muslim Fundamentalists  and anti hindu power groups who want an ethnic cleansing of  Hindus absolutely from Bangladesh. Bangladesh had around 24% Hindu population at the time of independence of the country, which came down to mere 9% in recent days.

The Religious affairs Department of Bangladesh Source says that there has been an increase of  2000 Durga Pujas as this year holds 24000 pujas instead 22000 pujas held last year. In the capital city of Dacca the Hindus arranged 172 pujas in comparison to 163 held last year.[http://jugantor.info/enews/issue/2009/09/24/news0854.php]. But in many places Hindus boycotted or suspended Durgapuja as a protest in the event of increasing atrocities upon Hindus, looting their properties, rapping hindu girls and women, encroachment upon  religious rights of Bangladeshi Hindus. In the last 15 days there were many clashes, rifts and disputes between Hindu and Muslims for which Hindus are in trouble to perform their religious rights. The Muslims and Anti Hindu Political Groups directly attacked Durga Puja Pandals in Mithapukur in Rangpur, Debuganj in Panchgarh, Satkhira Prachin, Mohammadpur in Magura and Strapur Shiva Temple in Dacca._1591794_durgaafp150

As per another report some puja committee in Dacca viz. Tanti Bazar, Lakhhi Bazar, Shankhari Bazar boycotted the Durga Puja   protest of unauthorised, illegal & forceful occupation of hindu houses, violation of modesty of hindu girls and forceful marriage of hindu girls by muslim goons. In the last three months 68 hindu families are uprooted from their hearth and houses in and around Dacca in the regime of so called Hindu friendly Awami League and Seikh Hassina Govt. In 30th March last Ten Hindu Families are driven out from R S Dass Road, Dacca in one night. In 25th August nine family members of Netai Das were abducted by one Land Maffia Alamgir from Rishikesh Dass Lane of Sutrapur. Alamgir fixed the ransom only by evacuating the land properties of  Netai Das immediately.

In Rangpur the  Muslim land mafias prepared fake deeds to  all land properties( including Durga Vita, i.e. permanent worship place of  Goddess Durga) communist leader Late Manikrishna Sen in order to drive out four hindu families residing there. Out of turmoil the Old Durga Puja of  Senbari Durga Vita is suspended this year.[http://www.eswastika.com/pdf/14092009.pdf]

A deadly clash between Hindu and Muslim tolled one Hindu life over the Durga puja issue in Madargaon Rasik Rai Jiu Mandir in Thakurgaon Sub District on 18th Sept 2009. In that Temple the present ISKCON authority arranged Durga Puja which was targeted by local muslim anti socials. The anti-hindu muslim goons brutally injured 10/12 Hindus of the Puja Committee and one Fulubabu Chandra Burman died in Rangpur Medical College & Hospital. Instead of punishing the muslim attackers upon Hindu Puja Committee, the local administration took control over the Hindu Temple and suspended the Durga Puja there in the name of keeping absolute peace of Hindu Cremation.[http://amardeshbd.com/dailynews/sub_section.php?issueID=1278&sub_section_id=1&NewsID=239565&NewsType=bistarito]

161539_1From a comprehensive report from a reliable source of Bangladesh it is estimated that 5000 Durga Pujas are suspended or stopped or destroyed in Bangladesh during last three years. And the claim of 24000 Durga Pujas this year is a false proposition of the Bangladesh Authority as per available Durga Puja records as below.

Chattagram 1520, Sylhet 523, Barishal 449, Khulna 722, Jessore 505, Natore 349, Narayanganj 159, Comilla 589, Noakhali 132, Banderban 219, Bhola 85, Lakshmipur 59, Satkhira 442, Naraile 454, Dacca 172, Tangaile 109, Thakurgaon 227 and Rajsahi 350… Total 4065 Durga Pujas are held in these 18 Zillas (Districts). And reports convey that there are 10939 Durga Pujas are held this year in the rest 46 districts in Bangladesh. As such maximum 15004 Durga Pujas are held in this year in Bangladesh against the acclaimed 24000, which is simply baseless. In every hour some Hindus are uprooted from Bangladesh. In each minute rights of a Hindu in Bangladesh is being seriously tarnished. [http://www.ittefaq.com/content/2009/09/24/news0551.htm]. The frightened Hindu Minorities in Bangladesh always face any dire consequences by the Muslim Terrorist groups. The Bangladesh Daily News Paper ‘Sambad’ reports on 24.09.09 that the  new alliance HUJI & JMB planned to target Durga Puja in different places in Bangladesh to demoralize the Hindu confidence. [http://174.120.99.127/~thedaily/details.php?news=23&action=main&option=single&news_id=12018&pub_no=128]

But all the Organisers and Participants of Durga Puja in Bangladesh are praiseworthy as they fight to restore and propagate their Hindu Struggle for Existence. They are the profound admirers of Hindu Tradition and Culture. Durga Mai Ki Jay. All Praise to Maha Shakti Durga Maa.

Hindu Tirtha Haridwar under Islamic Conspiracy

2Haridwar in the Northern State Uttarakhanda in India is regarded as a Prime Pilgrimage Place since Time immemorial for the Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains and all Indian Religious roots. It is worshipped as a holiest place at the confluence of River Ganges as anyone takes a dip into Mother Ganga, reaches emancipation in this life without any hesitation. It is considered as the gate way of  Baikuntha, the abode of Lord Hari in the Heaven. The spectacular evening rituals of offerings lights to Mother Ganga in every evening with chanting of Mantras and specific Aratis are world famous and viewed by more than 10000 devotees and visitors around the world every day.  

Haridwar Thirtha City has countless Hindu Akharas, Maths, Ancient Temples, Hindu Scripture Research Institutions, Sanskrit Colleges and Deemed Universities, Yog  & Vedanta Foundations, Yog  &  Ayurveda Centers, Pilgrimage Rest Houses, Several Ghats ( Public bathing stairs attached the flow of Ganges) and other Hindu places of religious and historical interests. In terms of every six or twelve years this city holds the Adhara (half) and Purna (full) Kumbha Mela (Holy Nectar Pitcher Festival). The next Purna Kumbha Mela falls on January, 2010.

But the Ruling Party in the Central Government, Indian National Congress (INC) is now trying hard to malign the State Ruling Party Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in Uttarakhanda many ways by pampering the minority Muslims against the Hindus and BJP in Uttarkhanda. The Haridwar City has a clear majority of Hindus by 90% of total population. The Lashker Road areas and the outskirts of the city have some Muslim population who want to a good relation with the Hindus. But the Central Minister of  Labour & Employment, Sri Harish Rawat of  INC demanded a Permanent and Big Namaz (Prayer) place in for a little number Muslims who have no problem at all in this regard even in Ramadan month. Obviously, the problem creator Central Minister H. Rawat now wants to be a good friend of Muslims, keeping his eye to the Muslim Vote Bank. This type of appeasement and odd demand of a new Namaz Place in a Hindu Religious Place, has been condemned in every quarter of Sadhu Samaj (Saint and Hindu Holy Men) in Haridwar and other places in Uttarakhanda. An annoyed Respected Santa said that it is a childish and bad demand as a demand of Hindu Worship Place in Ajmer Sharif or Mecca or Medina. The Muslims never allowed a prayer site within their jurisdiction but they want Namaz site everywhere in the world. This is not just and proper.ddn18loc-10-c-3-1_1253337169_m

An agitated Swami Hari  Giri Maharaj of Haridwar Akhara Parisad told this reporter that the Central Minister of Congress wants a communal tension before the Purna Kumbha so that the Hindu pilgrims fear to come to this auspicious event. Brahmaswarup Brahmachari of Jayram Ashram told that the ugly minded Central Minister should do his own job better and not to poke his nose to any religious event. All the Ashrams and Akharas have been united to crack this conspiracy of Islamization of Haridwar before the Purna Kumbha 2010. The Sadhu Samaj of Haridwar is united to protect GAU (Cow), GANGA (Ganges) and GAYATRI (Sanskrit Scriptures) in Haridwar for fortifying Indian Tradition and Culture. The Viswa Hindu Parishad has planned to launch a signature campaign against Harish Rawat.

Lindsay Lohan believes in ‘karma’

cc-rajanWelcoming Hollywood actress Lindsay Lohan’s belief in ‘karma’, Hindus have urged her to further explore the rich philosophical thought of Hinduism.

Lohan recently wrote on social networking service ‘twitter’: “i’m all about Karma… what goes around comes around!”

Acclaimed Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada (USA), said that ”karma”, the web of cause and effect and the rule of universal causality resulting from action, was first commented in ancient Satapatha Brahmana, and forms one of the basic principles of Hindu philosophy. The sum total of one’s actions, desires, feelings, and thoughts form one’s karma, which is a cosmic law of debit and credit for good and evil.

If Lohan needed any assistance in her study of Hinduism, he or other Hindu scholars would be glad to share their knowledge or arrange the appropriate expertise, Zed added.

Zed, who is president of Universal Society of Hinduism, also urged Lohan to visit a nearby Hindu temple,

Zed, who is president of Universal Society of Hinduism, also urged Lohan to visit a nearby Hindu temple to have firsthand experience of Hinduism, if  Lohan is truley interested in Hinduism and feels her inners.

 He offered to supply a set of Hindu scriptures to Lohan to help her in comprehensive understanding of its philosophy.

ARREST of HINDRAF PEACEFUL PROTESTERS in CALDLE LIGHT VIGIL in DATARAN MARDEKA on COW HEAD MARCH in SAHA ALAM

BRIEF MEDIA STATEMENT ON ARREST OF HINDRAF PEACEFUL PROTESTERS : WAYTHAMOORTHY

5th Sept 2009

HINDRAF is appalled by the arrest of 16 peaceful candle light vigil participants at Dataran Merdeka (Freedom Square). Most of those arrested were walking towards Dataran when they were charged by riot police with batons and arrested in a violent manner. 2 other participants were separately arrested about 30 minutes later- K.Shanti and Waytha Nayagi who were sending text messages to supporters informing the earlier arrests were arrested on grounds not known to them.

This is a deliberate and calculated attempt to target the main leaders of Hindraf so that the planned candle vigil would be foiled. Those vigil participants were going with candles and Roses when they were arrested.

THE ARREST OF UTHAYKUMAR AND 14 OTHER INNOCENTS IN THE DESECRATION OF THE COW EPISODE – A SHAME TO MALAYSIA

Uthayakumar and 14 others including his wife have been arrested tonite at the candlelight vigil against the seditious protests with freshly severed cow head by UMNO(United Malays Natioal Organisation) in Shah Alam Temple location issue. The UMNO protestors who provoked this whole series of events, the real culprits in this episode are being very gently and slowly investigated by the Attorney general’s office. Nothing very likely will happen to any of them. Hindraf is thakful to all the participants from other Organisation signed for a solideraty of Minorities in Malaysia alongwith the Media Friends.

Mosque coexists peacefully in Indian majority Brickfeilds unlike the hindu temple in Shah Alam

As I passed Jalan Sultan Abdul Samad in Brickfeilds for breakfast this morning it once again dawned upon me of the peaceful co-existence of a small hindu temple, a well established Church next door, an elaborate Chinese temple and a brand new Mosque, all almost next to each other. Not a day had the Indians and Hindus who form about 80% of the population of Brickfeilds objected to or protested to the building of this grand brand new mosque in Brickfeilds. It is not the culture of the Indians and hindus to do so. The hindus practice the often quoted and practiced verse “ yem mathame sam mathame” that is they are in co-existence with all religions. Similarly it is also not the culture of PAS ruled Kelantan to demolish or ask to relocate the ancient Sri Maha Mariamman Hindu Temple in Tumpat, Kelantan and which is located in a 99.99% malay muslim town, on the main road into Tumpat town and with only two hindu families left in this town.

This is peaceful religious co existence in practice in Malaysia. We humbly call upon Malaysians to stop using the term religious tolerance. Why should we tolerate another religion. We should co-exist like in the aforesaid two examples. We should all move forward in the direction of coexisting rather then tolerating. Then we would not have the situation of the unprecedented and new trend religious exremists demonstrations and cow head protest of the likes as in Shah Alam.

Perhaps UMNO, the PKR led Selangor State government and the Shah Alam religious extremist anti hindu temple demonstrators and the cow head protesters should take a leaf and learn about peaceful religious co-existence from the hindus in Brickfeilds and PAS in Tumpat, Kelantan and in many other parts of Malaysia especially in Penang and Malacca.

We await the day the UMNO led Malaysian government puts to an end to all forms of racial and religious extremist policies and practices and upholds and puts into practice Article 8 (Equality before the law) and Article 11 (Freedom of Religion) of the Federal Constitution instead of the usual puppet shadow play “wayang kulit” racial and “religious harmony” in Malaysia. Thank you.

Though taken from main source  http://www.religioustolerance.org/worldrel.htm , the presentation chart above is refreshed by the available data from other authentic references.

From a very reliable source it has been established that in 1920 ( Before the Moplah Hindu Massacre in 1921 in Kerala & Malabar region, India) there were 29% Hindus (Buddhists, Jains & Sikhs are then considered as hindus) , Christians ( RC ,Protestants & others) were then 24% and Muslims were only 14.5%  out of  world’s religious population.

Even in present days if we consider the mother Hindu origin, this force is the still second largest religious strength about 21.5% ( 14.5% Hindu, 6% Buddhist, Sikh-Jains-Tribal religions 1%) above the muslim strength of  19.5%.

Numbers in population has a very vital role in democracy and demographic hold. But the Hindus never think about it.

For the Struggle for Hindu Existence, Hindus must increase their numbers for a significant Survival.

Pandit organisation demands passage of  Kashmir Temples Bill 508px-Shankaragaurishvara_temple

Tags: Kashmiri Pandit , Kashmir Shrines , Temples Bill , Jammu and Kashmir

Published by: Noor Khan
Published: Mon, 24 Aug 2009 at 19:07 ISTF Prev Next LJammu: The Kashmiri Pandit Sabha today demanded the passage of the Kashmir Shrines and Temples Bill, saying it would ensure protection and preservation of the temples in Kashmir valley.

“We demand that the Kashmir Shrines and Temples Bill be passed in the assembly after tabling it in the House. The bill would help in preservation and protection of the temples and shrines in Kashmir valley by setting up a trust under it,” KPS president B L Sadhu told reporters here.

Sadhu also hailed the package of 15,000 jobs for displaced Kashmiri Pandits in Jammu and Kashmir and said, “The state government should act speedily on it to rebuild confidence among the community”.

http://www.samaylive.com/news/pandit-organisation-demands-passage-of-kashmir-temples-bill/650544.html

Just in the last year (2008) when a visitor from Bengal went to Pahelgaam to join Holy Amarnath Yatra, surprisingly saw a MUSLIM PRIEST cum CARE TAKER in an Old Shiva Temple ,named MAMALAKA SHIVA TEMPLE upon the near by rock accross the river ‘Leader’. The man named Abdul is given an honorarium of Rs. 2000/- pm from the State Custody.

kashmir-thumbBuilt on the right bank of the Lidder river by Raja Jai Suria (1128-1155 AD), the 8 sq ft temple was a popular destination for everyone on a pilgrimage to the Amarnath cave shrine. Till 1990, the temple, a property of the Jammu and Kashmir State Archaeology, Archives and Museum Department and a protected monument, had Pandit Radha Krishan, who hailed from Ganeshpora, responsible for its maintenance. This Temple is an unique 900-year-old Shiva temple with a two-foot “shivaling”. Some Hindus beleive that it is Oldest Mamalewsar Joytirliga Temple where the Pandava came to the course of  their Vanabas ( Exile to the Forest).

But with militancy rising in the 1990s, Pandit Radha Krishan was made to leave along with other Hindus of the area, abandoning the temple. So far the Temple is maintained by the local muslims, rather made easier to capture that temple.

This is not a case to be singled out. There are so many cases of destruction and Muslim occupation of Hindu Temples here and there in Kashmir. Those who believe that destruction of Hindu Temples are nothing but an aftermath  of December 1992, Ayodhoya Babri destruction, they are simply wrong. Here is a short list of  Temple destruction list of Kashmir before Dec 1992. More over, the pro-muslim J&K Government do not maintain the Old Hindu Heritage Hindu Temples & Shrines properly.

MCCBCHST CALLS FOR CALM AND UNDERSTANDING

MCCBCHST (Malaysian Consultative Council of Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Sikhism & Taoism) calls on all concerned to be calm and reasonable so that the authorities and the parties concerned will be able to find a peaceable agreement and understanding regarding the protest staged by some residents of Section 22 in Shah Alam, Selangor against the construction of a Hindu Temple in the vicinity.

Nothing can be gained by provocative action on the part of any side.

MCCBCHST regrets that a severed cow’s head was brought along in the demonstration. The cow is sacred to the Hindu religion.

MCCBCHST urges that unhappy residents will give the religious authorities of both sides a chance to discuss matters  with the state authorities so that an amicable solution can be arrived at.

Religious issues are best resolved around the negotiation table where mutual respect can be shown to all. No further demonstration by any side should be contemplated or allowed.

Peace and order should be maintained for the sake of all residents.

MCCBCHST, August 28, 2009

Rev. Dr Thomas Philips, President
      

The Cow-Head Lesson for Merdeka: Delegitimize Violence and Hatred kepala                                                      

We, the undersigned civil society organizations are shocked, angered and saddened by the “Cow-Head protest” in Shah Alam last Friday, 28 August 09, against a proposed Hindu temple in Section 23 of the city. The carrying of the head of a freshly slaughtered cow, a sacred animal to the Hindus, and the unveiled threat of bloodshed on the eve of Merdeka celebration suggests that all Malaysians need to reflect deeply about our 52 years of nationhood, and the clarion call of 1Malaysia.

From the outset, these heinous acts of crime perpetrated by the irresponsible few must NEVER be seen as a conflict between the two faiths or the two faith communities. All major spiritual traditions, Islam and Hinduism included, uphold peace and human dignity as their common and core values. Our spirituality and love for humanity mandates us for the perpetual quest for peace and abhorrence of all forms of hatred and civil disorder.

The Shah Alam incident sadly reveals that violence and hatred are still inadequately delegitimized in our society. We exhort all Malaysians to unite in our joint efforts to decry and delegitimize violence and hatred to prevent any individual or grouping from resorting to intimidation and provocation when faced with any town-planning disputes or rows of similar nature.

We the undersigned, taking cognizance of the above, do hereby:
1. URGE that all disputes in civil society must be resolved through peaceful means such as peaceful demonstrations, rational dialogues, extensive consultations and legal suits. The Selangor State Government’s plan to hold a town hall meeting to facilitate communication and engagement with all stakeholders is highly commendable.

2. CONDEMN in the strongest possible language any act to humiliate and intimidate any ethno-religious community, in this case the irreligious and irresponsible display of a cow head. In Shah Alam incident, not only the Hindus are humiliated and hurt but also all thinking Malaysians – Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu, Christian, Sikh, those of other spiritual traditions and atheist. We particularly share the pain and anguish of the Shah Alam Hindu community.

3. URGE all religious authorities, community leaders and political parties to unreservedly condemn the perpetrators of the reprehensible “Cow-Head” act. Every racial and religious bigot should be shamed and distanced by the general public especially by their ethno-religious community, which they seek to represent. Political parties must also take disciplinary action against members involved in inciting hatred. This would deprive them the pleasure and gratification of self-righteousness and heroism. Legal punishment alone may prove inadequate because it may instead grant the offenders the self-perceived honour of martyrdom.

4. SUPPORT a thorough investigation of those responsible for the “Cow-Head” protest for threatening violence (not sedition) on both the local Hindu community and the elected State Government of Selangor. Threats of violence, for whatever reason; has no place in civilized society. Violence must be condemned and can only be completely delegitimized when society has zero tolerance for it and every offender is appropriately punished.

5. EXPRESS shock and dismay at the failure of the police force to stop the protestors from issuing their threats of bloodshed. An independent investigation on professional negligence should be immediately initiated to examine these policing failures of a potentially fulminating racial and religious crisis. This incident among others further highlights the dire importance and urgent need for an Independent Police Complaint and Misconduct Commission (IPCMC). The IPCMC is a must if the Najib Administration is genuinely committed to peace in Malaysia.

6. CALL on all Malaysians to heed our plea to completely delegitimize violence and hatred and to strive towards its elimination from our public life. Let this be our joint resolution for our nation’s forthcoming Merdeka anniversary. Let us usher in a Malaysia, which cherishes the values of peace, reason, justice, freedom, equity and inclusion for all Malaysians.

Hindraf initiated legal action for ‘cow head’ protest in Malaysia .

Hindraf  ( Hindu Rights Action Force ) Malaysia, has filed a police report on the ‘cow head’ protest and urged the police to act swiftly. K Selvam acting for Hindraf

05b76d8d0a794a8f71335d7e03e2f549

lodged the report at the Shah Alam district police headquarters. He was accompanied by 16 leaders and supporters.

“We wonder why the police have yet to take any action against the protesters although they have promised to act swiftly. Until today, nothing has been done,” he said.

The act of marching with the cow’s head could create racial tension. “They marched about 300 metres with the head….it was seditious and the police did not do anything (to stop them),” he said.

After the Friday Prayer on last Friday, some 50 residents from Section 23 in Shah Alam staged the protest against the proposal to relocate a Hindu temple to their area by carrying the head of a cow by its horns to the State Government Building. Before dispersing, several protesters spat and stomped on the cow’s head.

By implications this is clearly inflammatory and provocative, as the cow is a religious symbol of the Hindus – a significant part of the Malaysian populace.

This action should have immediately invited the application of the Seditions Act by the Police -it is expressly for this purpose that this law exists.

Quote “Act 15 SEDITION ACT 1948
Seditious tendency
3. (1) A “seditious tendency” is a tendency — …….
(e) to promote feelings of ill will and hostility between different races or classes of the population of Malaysia;…..
4. (1) Any person who—
(a) does or attempts to do, or makes any preparation to do,or conspires with any person to do, any act which has or which would, if done, have a seditious tendency; shall be guilty of an offence and shall, on conviction, be liable for a first offence to a fine not exceeding five thousand ringgit or to
imprisonment for a term not exceeding three years or to both

Imagine what would have happenned if a Chinese group in Kedah had taken a head of a pig like this when their slaughterhouse was demolished to the gates of the Government to protest against the act of demolishment….. Just imagine.
I think it would have setoff a tremendous furore across the country and all those involved would have been dealt with summarily and immediately.It would have been seen as a terribly provocative act………. Compare!

Malaysian police questions 100 in cow’s head protest case

Kuala Lumpur, Sep. 1 (ANI): Over 100 people have been questioned in Friday’s ‘cow’s head’ protest against a temple relocation proposal in Malaysian city of Shah Alam.

On Friday, nearly 50 protesters gathered at State Secretariat building’s gate carrying a cow’s decapitated head. They warned of further action if a temple was constructed in Section 23 of the city to facilitate greater accessibility to devotees.

The New Strait Times quoted district police chief Noor Azam Jamaludin as saying that the protestors have been identified on the basis of pictures taken during the event.

“Once police investigation is complete, we will refer the case to the deputy public prosecutor for further action,” he said adding that investigation was 80 percent complete.

Azam also informed that residents had lodged a general report clarifying that the cow’s head was not meant to hurt anyone’s religious sentiment.

“In the report, they stressed that the cow’s head only signified the stupidity of the state government and was not meant to touch the religious sensitivities of anyone,” he said.

Earlier, Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak had expressed concern over the incident, and had asked the Inspector-General of Police, Musa Hassan, to investigate the matter.

The Section 19 temple is about 150 years old and was originally located in a plantation, but when the State Economic Development Corporation decided to develop the area into a housing estate, it left the temple there.Initially, the temple was supposed to be relocated to an industrial area in Section 22, but was moved to Section 23 to make it more accessible for devotees. Certain quarters had blamed the state government’s lack of consultation with the people for the latest incident. (ANI)

The Hindu American Foundation (HAF) has demanded the Malaysian government to conduct a quick and robust inquiry to identify and punish leaders of the mob involved in last week’s provocative and insensitive demonstration outside the Selangor state secretariat.

From another source it is learnt that some ‘ Overseas friends of  Hindraf Malaysia’ in London, demonstrated to register their protest over the ‘ cow head rally in Malaysia’   on Monday 31th August 2009.

Khairy condemns protest with cow head

Umno (United Malays National Organisation) Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin has strongly condemned the protest against the relocation of a Hindu temple where angry residents paraded a severed cow’s head this afternoon.

Calling on the protesters to reflect on their action, he asked: “How would you feel if the proposal to build a mosque in a non-Muslim area – which is already happening – leads a group of non-Muslims to burn and stomp on the Quran?”

“Would not the Malays rise with anger? If yes, then parading with a cow’s head is just as insulting?” he added.

Khairy warned that such emotional acts could jeopardise peace in the country.

“If the residents were dissatisfied with the proposal to build a temple in their area, they should have used the existing channels to air their grouses,” he said.

‘Islam does not condone this.’

He said although a memorandum submitted earlier by the residents might have failed to change the state government’s stand on the issue, it was not an excuse to demonstrate in such an insulting manner as if this was an uncivilised country.

The Umno Youth leader added that he was saddened that the protest was done in the name of Malay non-governmental organisations and after Friday prayers in the month of Ramadhan.

“I believe this is not an action condoned by Islam, a religion which espouses humility and respect for other religions. This act is surely
to anger the Hindus,” he said.

“Where is the spirit of 1Malaysia, especially among the Malay Muslims who are the majority in this country. I pray that this incident does not lead to anything more serious,” he added.

Khairy said while he would rise to defend the dignity of Islam if the religion is belittled, “I will also voice out if other religions are insulted.”

Malaysian PM Directs IGP To Act Over Temple Protest posted at http://tunkuaisha.blogspot.com/

KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 28 (Bernama) — Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak has directed Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan to investigate an incident in Shah Alam Friday where protestors used a cow’s head to vent their anger against the Selangor state government.
According to Human Resources Minister Datuk Dr S. Subramaniam, Najib informed him of this after he (Dr Subramaniam) had briefed the prime minister on the incident which took place outside the Selangor state secretariat after the Friday prayers.
“The prime minister has promised to look into it and asked the IGP to immediately act on the matter,” he said in a statement here.
In the incident, a small group of people said to be residents of Section 23 in Shah Alam had placed a cow’s head on the gates of the state secretariat building, apparently in protest against the construction of a Hindu temple in Section 23.
“The prime minister said he was very upset over the incident and wants it to be nipped in the bud,” Dr Subramaniam said.
He said that while the prime minister was promoting the 1Malaysia concept and racial unity, “this kind of action will hinder the process and put the clock back”.
Meanwhile, Musa said he had asked Selangor police chief Datuk Khalid Abu Bakar to investigate the case and take those responsible to task.
“I also urge witnesses to lodge police reports to enable us to take action against those involved,” he said when contacted today.
Khalid, when contacted, said action would be taken against those involved in the incident.
“Whatever problems you have, discuss them first,” he said.

This is what happens when you do things without using your brain.50 of you protested against the construction of a temple in malay majority area was right thing to do but to bring a cow’s head is 100% WRONG thing to do. it is an insult to Hindu religion and Islam does not allows it’s followers to insult or bring harm to other religions. It is the same act when pig heads were thrown in a surau at um recently by an ethnic Chinese Group.We hope the police will take stern action against the protesters.we want these things to stop once and for all from both side.

Hindu Minority in Malaysia are denied for Religious Rights.

Malaysia: Protesters threaten bloodshed over Hindu temple 
 

A group of Malay-Muslim protesters claiming to be residents of Section 23 have threatened bloodshed unless the state government stopped the construction of a Hindu Temple.shah-alam-cowmarch-aug28

Amid chants of “Allahuakbar,” the group also left the severed head of a cow at the …More… 

The Position of  Hindus in Malaysia is worsening day by day under the pressure of  Muslim Fundamentalists in Malaysia. Malay Hindus are denied from every right of  individual freedom. As Cow is considered as a very holy animal for Hindus, the Muslim Fundamentalists there cut off cow head and took that in their rally towards State administrative H.Q. over an issue of shifting and rennovation of a 150 years old HINDU TEMPLE. It happened just on 28th August 2009.

As Muslims are 90% of population at Shah  Alam, the 10% Hindu People will not be allowed for their place of worship. But India and many other place in the world where the muslims are less than 16%  or even less than 10%, they are allowed to offer namaz and to construct the Mosque with full dignity. But Muslims in the present day are getting intolerant gradually and  they like to show their ‘Islamic Intolerence’ upon the ‘non-beleivers’ if they are majority in turn. Malay Hindus are simply victim of Muslim Zealots and their rights should be restored by International Good Will Community. 

Cow killed in Malaysian temple row
Venkatesan Vembu / DNA  August 28, 2009

Hong Kong: Muslim fanatics in Malaysia on Friday severed a cow’s head and warned of “bloodshed” unless a provincial government halted construction of a relocated Hindu temple that the protesters said “disturbed” their own praying.

The group of about 50 protesters left the cow’s head outside the entrance of the Selangor State Secretariat as a warning to local leaders, eyewitnesses told DNA.

The group gathered after Friday prayers at the Shah Alam state mosque in Selangor, near Kuala Lumpur, and marched to the secretariat. Ibrahim Haji Sabri, deputy chairman of the local resident’s committee that is opposed to the Maha Mariamman temple, warned of “bloodshed and racial tension” if local leaders did not halt the temple construction.

Sabri demanded that the state government relocate the temple to a neighbouring district as “as originally scheduled”. In particular, he branded Selangor minister Menteri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim a “traitor to the Malay race and to Islam”. Ibrahim had visited the temple site on Thursday, one of the eyewitnesses told DNA.

The controversy began with the proposed relocation of a 150-year-old Mariamman temple in a plantation area in Section 19 neighbourhood; since that area is being redeveloped as a residential area, authorities proposed that it be relocated to Section 22, but since it was an industrial area, it was later assigned to Section 23.

The protest could whip up racial and religious tension, and PM Najib Razak has ordered the police to take action against the protesters. Malaysian Indian Congress president S Samy Vellu, who represents Indian interests in the ruling coalition at the centre, condemned the beheading of the cow.

Malaysian Muslim ‘cow head’ demo criticised
(AFP) – 5 hours ago

KUALA LUMPUR — Malaysian lawmakers have condemned a group of Muslim protesters who trampled on a severed cow’s head in protest at the building of a Hindu temple, and remained defiant on Sunday over the act.

In the latest religious dispute to erupt in multi-cultural Malaysia, local media said 50 Muslims on Friday took the head of the cow — a sacred animal for Hindus — to the central Selangor state government office and stamped on it.

The protest was against the relocation of a Hindu temple to a Muslim-majority neighbourhood in the state. News websites Malaysiakini and The Malaysian Insider published pictures of the bloodied cow head.

Around 60 percent of Malaysia’s 27 million people are Muslim Malays, but the country is also home to large Chinese and Indian minorities, variously practising Buddhism, Christianity and Hinduism, among others.

Lawmaker Khairy Jamaluddin, leader of the youth wing of the ruling United Malays National Organisation (UMNO), criticised the protest as “emotional and insulting”.

“(This) act did not consider the sensitivity and respect for other religions which is needed to maintain the country’s harmony,” he wrote on his blog.

“The act definitely will anger the Hindus and Malaysians,” Khairy added.

Veteran opposition legislator Lim Kit Siang said the act was “deplorable”.

“In a multi-religious society, the act of sacrilege to one religion must be regarded as an act of sacrilege to all other religions and the entire nation,” Lim said.

State police chief Khalid Abu Bakar said the protesters will be investigated for sedition, according to English daily Sunday Star, but the demonstration organiser told AFP they would not apologise and rejected responsibility for the incident.

“There is no point in us apologising as it was not our work. The cow head was brought in by an individual and we don’t know that person,” Mahyuddin Manaf, who led the group of local residents, said.

“Maybe that was just a way of expressing the anger. We just want the Hindu temple to be relocated to another area as this is a Muslim-majority area,” he told AFP.

Issues related to religion, language and race are sensitive matters in multi-racial Malaysia, which witnessed deadly riots in 1969.
