Press Trust of India, Tuesday March 30, 2010, Hyderabad
Curfew has been extended till Wednesday morning and patrolling intensified in communal violence-hit areas of the old city where clashes during the last three days left one dead and 80 injured.
The situation was, however, “totally under control” with the deployment of a large number of central security forces, Hyderabad City Police Commissioner A K Khan told reporters.
Curfew was imposed last evening in 17 police station areas of South Zone after fresh violence erupted in Moghalpura, Shalibanda, Charminar, Aliabad, Falaknuma, Shamsheergunj and Lal Darwaja localities.
“We have intensified patrolling in lanes and by-lanes in curfew-affected areas where communal clashes took place during the last three days,” Khan said. He said though the situation was tense, it was totally under control with the deployment of a large number of security forces including RAF and CRPF.
Replying to a query, he said the decision to relax curfew would be taken tomorrow Pic.^Lord Shiva Idol broken by fanatic Muslims during Hyderabad Riots after monitoring the situation. He warned that stern action would be taken against those involved in communal clashes.
Due to curfew, 10th class examinations in 140 centres in South Zone area have been postponed, South Zone DCP Madhusudhan Reddy said.
Osmania University authorities, meanwhile, announced that the degree examination scheduled to be held from tomorrow has been postponed to April 7.
One person was stabbed to death on Monday and another hurt in the Shalibanda area. Another person was injured when a vehicle was attacked at Khilwat Chowrasta. About 130 persons, suspected to be involved in the communal clashes, have been taken into custody so far, police added.
The Centre has rushed 1,800 paramilitary personnel to restore peace in the sensitive areas. The entire force has been put on alert to maintain law and order in view of Hanuman Jayanti celebrations.

Hindu Muslim Riot Continues in Old City in Hyderabad : 20 injured as violence continues Sunday.
At least 20 people including eight journalists were injured as clashes between irate mobs belonging to two communities continued at several places in the Old City for the second successive day on Sunday on March 28, 2010.
A street in the old city area were seen fully decorated with saffron flags for the Hanuman Jyanti festival which irritated the fanatic Muslim who tried to destroy the “Mahavir Jhandas” and attacked the organisers of the festival. Riots subsequently broke out in the area. Generally, the Hindus observe the Mahavir Hanumat Jayanti after the observation of Ram Navami Festival in large scale. As Hyderabad is a Muslim dominated area with a good numbers of fundamental Muslims leaders in national level, the Hindus are generally denied to observe their festivals in a trouble-free situation. However the instigators began the trouble in Moosa Bowli area when a rumor was aired for removing green flags and putting up saffron flags instead.
Trouble began in Moosa Bowli when one group allegedly removed green flags and put up saffron flags instead. But the Picture shows the intact Green Flags. No Saffron Flags there. But the Muslim Mob started Rioting as per Quranic dictum (HE).

All the injured were treated as out-patients in Osmania General Hospital and discharged after treatment. Equipment of a daily’s photographer too was smashed in the melee. Few shops were also selectively targeted and burnt by mobs in Begum Bazar.

Yesterday’s communal incident over putting up of flags by a community and resisted by another in Moosabowli and Hussainialam spread to other areas like Mylardevpalli in Rajendernagar, Siddiambar Bazar, Afzalgunz and environs today.
Stone pelting took place sporadically even as small gangs moved around menacingly in certain lanes beating up whoever they came across, eye witnesses said. Innocent passersby on roads were being dragged out of vehicles and being beaten up even as rumours flew thick and fast about religious places coming under attack further heightening tensions.
Vehicles including six cars and a two-wheeler were reportedly burnt in a few places even as police rushed forces like Rapid Action Force (RAF) contingents to the troubled spots. Senior police officials are camping near Charminar to bring the situation under control.
Although traffic was moving, all the shops along with fuel filling stations remained shut in most parts of the Old city.
Local Hanuman Jayanti Organizers vehemently protested over the arrests of innocent Hindus and demanded an administrative or police investigation about the anti Hindu activities up-growing in Hyderabad and adjacent areas by the fanatical Muslims. They categorically hope a Hindu-Muslim harmony in the whole area as the Hindus aspire it. But not in the name of humiliation and persecution upon Hindus in Hyderabad or anywhere in India.
At latest the situation is under control as per available report.

Manisha unhappy with Hindu Nepal becoming secular state
Updated on Friday, March 26, 2010, 18:38 IST ||Zee News||PTI.
Kathmandu: Bollywood actress Manisha Koirala on Friday expressed here displeasure over converting Nepal into a secular state, saying there was no need to change the status of the Hindu nation.
40-year-old Koirala, the granddaughter of B P Koirala who was Nepal’s first elected primed minister, said the country never had any dispute over the issue of religion.
“I don’t understand why peaceful Hindu state Nepal was converted into a secular state,” she said talking to mediapersons in the capital.
Nepal was converted into a secular state three years ago by the Parliament.
“Nepal never had any dispute over the issue of religion. There was no need to change the status of the Hindu state as there was no problem in it,” she said.
Manisha, a strong supporter of monarchy, said she had great respect for the late Prime Minister G P Koirala, her grandfather’s younger brother, though she had some political differences with him.
He possessed a strong personality and was a dedicated politician, she said, adding he did whatever he thought was right.
Replying to a question on who should be the successor of Koirala, the Nepali-Indian actress said it is not necessary that his successor should come from the Koirala family.
The party’s next general convention will decide who will be the successor, Manisha said.
“There should be cooperation among the leaders of the party not competition, she pointed out.
When asked if she is in race for the party’s leadership, the actress said she has no interest in politics at this moment.
“I want to serve the country from outside politics,” she said, adding “I will work for the benefit of children and orphans in the country”.
She said her grandfather BP Koirala was her ideal in politics.
When asked about the possibility of the revival of monarchy in the country, she avoided a direct answer, saying “I am too small a person to comment on that”.
On her professional work, Manisha said she will work in Nepali film if she is offered a good script.
She warned that the failure to promulgate the new constitution by May 28 will be “disastrous” for the country.
“I wish the constitution will be drafted on time, she said, adding it will be disastrous if it is not completed on time.
When asked about her marriage, the Bollywood star said she has not yet decided on the matter.
However, she underlined that she would like to settle down in her homeland Nepal.

A new study has found that the Hindus belonging to lower castes are unofficially declared as “untouchables” and are given a second-grade-citizen treatment. Their kids are made to clean the school premises and are forced to sit on back benches.
The study also found that Hindu women belonging to scheduled castes were the most vulnerable and considered “sexually available by men” of Muslim-dominated communities. Since the SC Hindus are economically weaker with no social support or political leverage in the community, their young women/ girls were lured into matrimony or abducted and wed through forced conversions.
“The abduction of young scheduled caste women is frequent and often reported in regional newspapers. And they are kidnapped or lured and then used sexually and sometimes abandoned after being kept in custody,” found the study.
According to the study findings, the “untouchable” Hindus were denied barber services and offered food and drink in separate crockery.
The report of the research carried out by the ‘Long Behind Schedule’ on caste-based discrimination in Pakistan, was released at the Karachi Press Club last evening.
“In schools, scheduled caste students are obliged to sit on back seats
, leaving the front seats for students from non-scheduled castes. Though they are not asked to do it on a regular basis, the practice has been in place for so long that it has become a custom. Scheduled caste students are also made to clean the schools,” the Daily Times quoted the study findings as saying.
The study was conducted in two districts of Sindh – Tharparkar and Umerkot – and two district of the Punjab – Rahimyar Khan and Bahawalpur – for one year. Besides, a survey was also conducted on 750 households.
The study was conducted on behalf of the International Solidarity Network (ISDN) and Indian Institute of Dalit Studies (IIDS) in collaboration with the Pakistan Institute of Labour Education and Research (PILER) and Thardeep Rural Development Programme (TRDP).
An overwhelming majority (79 percent) of the scheduled caste population said in reply to the survey’s questionnaire that they faced discriminatory treatment of one kind or another and the situation is the worst in southern Punjab. And, 69 percent of those surveyed said that their upper caste Hindu and Muslim neighbours either did not invite them to their social gatherings such as weddings, or if invited, they were served food separately.
This attitude was relatively more prevalent in Rahimyar Khan (87 percent) than in Tharparkar (60 percent), found the survey.

ISLAMABAD – Discriminatory attitude of the general public as well as Hindus’ upper caste towards ‘schedule caste’ Hindus is allegedly practised in different parts of the country as issues of separate eating pots in hotels; denial of culling at barbers shops and restricted permission of worship at Hindu temples are major contributory malpractices.
Among the 640 Hindu families including Bheel, Manghwal, Balmeeki, Aaria around, 527 families complained that they had to use separate pots in hotels in their vicinities and around 328 families said that they even could not visit the temple for worship, according to a survey conducted by ‘Scheduled Caste Rights Movement’ (SCRM) Pakistan.
The survey was conducted in different parts of the country – Lahore, Rawalpindi, Rahimyar Khan, Bahawalnager, Multan, Norowal and Bahawalpur – where scheduled caste Hindus are living in large numbers. The Survey was conducted among the members of the upper caste including Thakar and others who simply do not allow the lower caste Hindus to visit and worship in the Hindu temples,” said Chairman of Scheduled Caste Movement Ramesh Jaipal, while talking to TheNation.
Senator Khatu Mal Jeewan, however, said that the discriminatory trend was fast decreasing. “Though still it is somewhere in the rural areas yet the discrimination has very much decreased in the urban areas,” he said.
It is relevant to note here that the term “scheduled castes” emerged in political and constitutional history of Pakistan on November 12, 1957, when the Ministry of Law issued a presidential ordinance to declare certain non-Muslim castes as “scheduled castes.” While the Survey conducted by SCRM showed that children of “scheduled caste” Hindus ‘living in different vicinities are facing discrimination as out of 640 surveyed families 395 families complained of discriminatory attitude while children of around 124 “are not going to school due to different reasons including poverty, less trend of education.”
Among 640 surveyed families, 440 families complained that they had no right of culling from barber’s shop in their cities while 200 families said that they had no problem of culling in their vicinities.

I was inspired to write this essay by a Pakistani journalist friend. Later, during a lecture tour in South East Asian countries, where Indian and Chinese origin minorities are also discriminated I noticed that the minorities are palpably anguished. The latest incidents of organized attacks by Bengali Muslims on hill dwelling Chakma tribals in Khagrachari areas firmed up my decision to chronicle a preliminary account of the conditions of the non-Muslim minorities in Pakistan. I had earlier written a piece on the plight of the Pakistani Christians. I have not touched upon the plight of the Shia and Ahmadiya (non-Muslim) communities in Pakistan, which require international attention. Not a single Indian Muslim religious seminary has so far condemned Pakistan for inhuman treatment of the Shia and Ahmadiya communities.
I am indebted to a member of the Pakistan Human Rights Commission and several young Pakistani writers who have boldly portrayed the pitiable condition of the minorities in Pakistan. Their voices are drowned in wilderness. The normal civil society members are also ashamed of these developments. However, I do not want to name them fearing visitations by the ISI goons.
Jinnah had said in his speech to the new nation created, called Pakistan, on August 17, 1947 to assure that his fiefdom, for which he fought relentlessly and even organized the Great Direct Action Pogrom of Calcutta in August 1946, to assure the national minorities, after 3 millions were killed in communal riots and several million escaped to the safety of Hindustan: “You are free; free to go to your temples, you are free to go to your mosques, or to any other place of worship in the State of Pakistan. You may belong to any religion or caste or creed-that has nothing to do with the business of the State…We are starting with this fundamental principles that we are all citizens and equal citizens of our State.”
People conversant with Jinnah’s rise as a rabid communal Muslim leader (Jaswant Singh’s white washing aside) know that Jinnah Kathiawadi lived by deceit and died in neglect (recall his Quetta visit, breakdown of his car on way to Karachi and apathetic attitude of the people in power). He was not even a practicing Muslim (a Shia), but pleaded fanatic Muslim causes. He never tried to rescue Muslim politics from the clutches of the maulanas. He was the person who boycotted the 1937 interim governments in the Central Legislative Assembly and Congress led provinces. He fabricated or organized the fabrication of charges against Congress’ ruthless suppression of the Muslims. One after another memorandum was submitted to the Governor General; all bundles of lies. The grand finale of Jinnah’s bunches of lies and prevarication included Calcutta pogrom in collaboration with Suhrawardy government, deceitful refusal to sign the Mountbatten Plan for partition, backing out from original agreement that Mountbatten would be the common Governor General for India and Pakistan and finally throwing a grand inaugural lunch on 16th August, a day of Ramadan (later shifted to dinner).
With such track record of prevarication, fabrication and falsehood Jinnah’s 17th August 1947 speech assuring the minority was then and even now treated as crocodile’s tears. If he were a democrat he would have not chosen the machetes to kill. He could not stop killing of the Hindu and other minorities in Pakistan even after he assumed the gaddi of the Governor General in true Hollywood style. Since Jinnah the Hindu minorities have continued to suffer in Pakistan and now they have become an endangered community. Those interested may read Jinnah of Pakistan by Stanley Wolpert and Mountbatten’s Report on the Last Viceroyalty, edited by Lionel Carter.
For which Pakistan Jinnah had struggled? His idea of Pakistan was limited to the vision of Dr. Iqbal-whole of Punjab, Sind, Balochistan, NWFP, FATA areas and Kashmir. He had no plan for Bengal and Assam and other Muslim majority areas in India. Later the Bangistan theory of Chaudhry Rahmat Ali propelled the Pakistan protagonists to amalgamate Bengal and Assam and create the eastern wing of Pakistan.
However, it must be said to the credit of Jinnah that in the absence of Dr. Iqbal and any other Muslim poet he could trust, he had commissioned a Hindu to write the original national anthem of Pakistan. India and Pakistan have another anomalous situation in common. Iqbal, the progenitor of Pakistan, had composed the national song Sare Jahan se Accha—. It is still used as one of the national songs. Jinnah, on the other hand had summoned Jagannath Azad, son of Lahore-based poet Tilok Chand Mahroom, just three days before the creation of Pakistan, to write the country’s first national anthem. It had stirred up a debate in that country. It is claimed that Jinnah sowed the seed of secularism by inviting Jagannath Azad to write the national anthem. However, Pakistan’s first national anthem composed by a Hindu was discarded by Pakistan in 1950. What a great disrespect to the father of the nation! Some leading Pakistani thinkers correctly said that Pakistan exists on the venom of anti-Hindu elixir.
Demographic distribution of Hindus in Pakistan (source Wikipedia)
At the time of Partition in 1947, the Hindu population of Pakistan was estimated at approximately a quarter of the total population. For example, the population of Karachi, Pakistan in 1947 was 450,000, of which 51% was Hindu, and 42% was Muslim. By 1951, Karachi’s population had increased to 1.137 million because of the influx of 600,000 Muslim refugees from India. In 1951, the Muslim population of Karachi was 96% and the Hindu population was 2%. In 1998, the Hindu population in all of Pakistan was 1.6%, and the most recent census would certainly be expected to demonstrate consistent dwindling demographic trends and further diminution of Hindu population. ……………………………………………………

The confidence and constraints of Baba Ramdev. Politics of Pranayam towards a Ramrajya by Ramdev.
by Upananda Brahmachari
Part-I published on March 18, 2010 and Part-II on March 20, 2010
At first I bow down to Baba alike crores of other believers who believe “only Baba can change any situation in India”.
In this changing scenario we just see the today’s (16th March 2010) coverages in the English electronic media as seen in the internet that Baba Ramdev has completed the process to launch his Political Party still un-named through his apolitical social organ ” Bharat Swaviman Andolan” for a “Total System Change in India” rather than a “Convetional Political Change” in the States and the Center. For the last few years Baba rented the air with a slogan everywhere he went : Sattva badli bar bar, Bavasthya badalni hai iss bar, i.e. Change in Politics is a common thing. But we have to change the system this time. There is nothing pleasant situation for a common citizen for such a starvation free, corruption free, terror free, tension free healthy wealthy India than an out-rightly degenerated Bharat by the political extruders in all spheres. And in that direction Baba will set 543 MPs in the Parliament of India who will act as the Vikramadityas of the past. In a word the India and Indian parliament will be Judgment Seats of Vikramaditya again in the modern times. If true, surely the history will depict it as a ‘Golden era of Baba Ramdev’ in future.
Knowing fully well that ‘politics is not a childish game’, Baba plans ahead apparently slow but steady. But actually when to deliver, it will be perceived as deadly medium fast swing to bold out the opponents as the Bharat Swaviman Team Managers chalked out.
Then it is the strength of the Swaviman Team to ensure the success of the Total System Change so propagated and propounded by our revered Baba. But what is the structural strength of this Swaviman Team ?
As I saw in the Astha Channel today (16-03-2010) that Baba delivered his lecture to the Swaviman Team of Rajasthan in Jodhpur in very inspiring way to invade all the lane, bye-lanes and localities of all the villages and towns to make members of Bharat Swaviman to materialize the proposed change in India. The target is simple : ‘We will have five-ten lakh (five in small dists and ten in big dists) members in every district in a year or two, and they will become a big deciding political force in 2014 parliamentary election. It will be a solid vote bank..,’ he said, speaking in Hindi. Babaji also depends on this strength of simple mathematics.
But in India the politics of money and muscle power, corruption and conspiracy or the convention and the conception do not maintain any mathematics or matrix. So, how much the strength of the huge audience in front of the Astha Channel or the large participants in each and every Patanjali Yoga or Swaviman Shivir (Ramdevji claimed that personally he trained up 3 Crores of Yog Sainiks/ Yog Warriors in different camps) would be useful to capture the political power or control the political power in India, is a matter of speculation and prediction. If Baba is to usher into an alternative politics in India, it should be in ground reality.
In reality three types of men generally come to Baba. 1) Health related : i. Patient, ii. health conscious, iii. interested in health occupations/health trainings. 2) Business related : To run Seva Kendra of Patanjali Chikitsahalaya or to run very profitable and highly prospective Ayurvedic business in the brand name of Baba Ramdev and 3) Self-interested and opportunists. And from these three categories only 3% are interested in Politics. The Self- interested and opportunist group may jump to politics as a great follower of Baba, though they have fishy dedication and a little experience in it . But obviously there are some good exceptions in this general trend. There are good numbers of seekers and followers with ideals and dedications to this Yoga Guru. But most of them are not the Life members or the corporate members of Patanjali System. These genuine persons of erudite nature and varied experiences are disgusted by the self-interested and businessmen thronged into the closest circle around Baba. In other words, the power of Swaviman has already been vested in the grip of some businessmen or self-interested group or even under some section of political pressure group in some places to some extent. It is not the story of Rajasthan or West Bengal but such generalization has come up with a bitter reality. Where contribution of money is audaciously judged for grading the credential, some bitterness equates then with better-ness with no option.
When we talk about the betterment, we must emphasis the power to do better. In this connection Baba Ramdev has the inequitable attributes of his own class of excellence. He is a good organizer, superb orator, confident propagator, master of his discipline of Yoga-Pranayam-Ayurveda and a non-defeating huge personality. As a self conscious person Baba should confident about his success. But he should not ignore the constraints before him.
Through an elimination method Baba tried to measure the challenges in opposition, in a speech some days ago. He told the Netas (leaders) are already exposed for their out-right corruption. So, their challenges are finished as they will be summarily rejected by the patriotic people under Swaviman banner. The Abhinetas (actors) are not at all fit for the politics or administration. And the Players (Specially cricketers) are of no use of us as they are the partners of multi-national companies like pepsi or coca-cola, the enemies of the Nation. So the acceptance of these three types are gone in the garbage. Their fans will be disillusioned and now the Kathakars (Spiritual speakers) with their large followers may come under the consideration to take the lead to change of system in India. But many of them told Baba Ramdev, “Baba tu hi le le“. And accordingly Baba took the charge to lead Swavimani Bharat.
Oh! What a good situation if the whole Sant and Dharmik Samaj unanimously choose an unique leader like Ramdev. If the crores of followers of Art of Living of Sri Sri Ravi Shankar or the crores of followers of Santasri Asharam Bapu stand united to vote for Bharat Swaviman or like that name, and Baba may capture the magic number of 272 on his own. I am really exalted to think Sri Sri as the President of India and Baba as the Prime Minister. But all these are the ingredients of an absurd story-making, so far.
As far my little knowledge concerned……………………(to be concluded).
As far my little knowledge concerned the Saints are not getting their due weightage (as desired) from their holds in either in Congress or the BJP. In the cases of Kanchi Shankaracharya or Swadhvi Pragnya or Asaharam Bapu, nobody came to help them from any quarter in the prominent political arena. So they are frustrated in the conventional politics based upon the minority, totally rejecting the majority sentiments. Obviously the Santa-Sadhu Samaj are gradually getting a critical concern about the Ram-Janambhoomi Temple Construction, Cow Slaughter, Nirmal Ganga, Pilgrimage Tax, Insecurity of Hindus and Hindu Mutth-Mandir, all related to the Hindu sentiments. The exploitation of the Nation out of Corruption-Vrashtrachar by political leaders has also affected the gross Hindu sentiments by and large.
Consequently the formation of the groups of King-Makers or the Kings in the row, has been started in different shapes. As told several times by Ashoke Sinhalji or Dr. Togadia, that BJP is totally failure to save the interests of the Hindus, there is a dire need to build a New Hindu Party to see the Hindu National interest. In that connection Swami Satyamitrananda and Acharya Dharmendrji have initiated first. Vijay Kaushalji Mahraj and Santa Rajiv are active in another group. Some Santas and Akhadas are united under the leadership of Asharamji Bapu. Swami Ramdev has the connection with Sudarshanji Maharaj, Chidananda Muniji and Udashin Akhadas. Sri Sri Ravishankarji has connection with almost all the groups. The Aditya Vahini of Srimat Nischalanandaji Swaraswati is nowhere connected with anybody of the above groups, though they have the same thought of System Change and Hindu Vote Bank. They feel the importance of Hindu Vote Bank or the Hindu Politics. But it is yet to be a setting point of conglomeration of National Vote Bank (secular interpretation of Hindu Vote Bank) of thousands and lakhs followers of each prominent saints under the leadership of Baba Ramdev. Only the membership of Swaviman Andolan cannot be sufficient to capture the Political Power in India. It needs a political acumen also. We should understand that the Communists in India have their largest membership in all fronts (party, trade, office, industries, women, students, labours, privet, un-organized etc. etc. etc.), but they have a poor influence in both the Center and States. Moreover, the Shankaracharyas (4 Shankar Peeths and other Upa-Peeths) have been playing some roles in Indian Politics but they possibly reluctant towards a formerly Ramkishan Yadav and an Arya Samajist, who also perhaps discard the ‘Pancha-upasana‘ considered eventual for the Sanatanis and Dashanamis. So, still it is hard to digest, “maine panga mol liya“ (I have taken the challenge) or “Baba tu hi le le” (Baba, You take the charge) as told by Baba in many times.
The endevour I put in the foregoing passages here is not to tarnish the image or the possibility of Bharat Swaviman or to damage the Political prospect of Baba Ramdev. But to point out the gulf of difference between the prospects such derived from the confidence gained by Baba Ramdev and the constraints before him. And that should be bridged up at any cost. But the widening of this gulf due to the over-confident “Swavimanists” is most dangerous than anything. In every photo session in Haridwar with Ramdev Baba, these Yog-Sikshak or Swavimanist patiently heard Baba’s farewell words.“ Ghar jake sona nehin” ( Don’t take rest returning home). Each and everybody assured Baba for fighting hard. But these are the matter of words, not the matter of wars , as designed by their Godman Ramdev. They believe Baba will do everything and they are only to take the fruits.
Baba has already entered into a world hitherto unknown to him. The vicious circle of Politics and the black money will try to engulf him. Baba believes that he has well-wishers in every political party and social organization and they will help them. In the solid rock reality, I do not think that RSS will help Baba damaging the prospect of BJP. Congress men do not count Swaviman Andolan as a potential enough. Keeping the chance of seat adjustment wide open with BJP, Bharat Swaviman may find a good scope to unite some regional force like Hindu Janajagruti Samithi, Sanatan Dharma Raksha Manch in Maharashtra & Goa, Sri Ram Sene in Karnataka, Hindu Makkal Katchi in Tamil Nadu, Hindusthan Nirman Dal in Delhi, Hindu Samhati in West Bengal, Rashtriya Swaviman Andolan (Govindacharyaji) or Rashtravadi Morcha (Sardar Sarjit Singh Dang), and other likeminded organization. Otherwise it will be an uncontrollable row to manage a ticket of Ramdev with bundles of black money resulting a new opening of nasty drainage in Indian politics, defaming the “Saffron Image” forever.
With immediate effect Baba should declare his political Chief in every States with a band of whole timers for political affairs publicly. The key political persons of Swaviman in every District should be publicly declared afterwards without delay. Electioneering is a strategic war with opponents. It takes time. So finalization in the end of 2013 and declaration in the start of 2014 may be fatal. And most of the ‘Pravaris” and ‘Avaris’ to PYS (Patanjali Yog Samity) or BST (Bharat Swabiman Trust) enjoying the Bollero, Scorpio or Tata Safari from HQ and awfully busy with hectic schedule should be cautious, serious and pious. Yes, Baba wants a new dimension of value-based Politics once again in India. We should not be fraudulent to that. The people of India want to see an achieved Ram Rajya by Ramdev. (Concluded)

Hindus in New York denounce Doniger’s book ” Hindus: An Alternative History”
Narain Kataria in New York
A consortium of Hindu organizations, temples and concerned individuals in New York and New Jersey area organized a protest demonstration at New School University Building in New York City on March 10th. The demonstration was against the decision of National Book Critics Circle (NBCC) to consider honoring Dr. Wendy Doniger for her book “Hindus: An Alternative History”.
[Please note that Prof. Wendy Doniger was not selected by NBCC for the honor. However, because of the very contentious nature of the Doniger award and its ramifications you are requested not to write or call NBCC in any way – positive or negative.]
The protesters argued that Wendy Doniger’s book contains numerous factual errors, mischaracterizations, and shows an undercurrent of deep contempt for Hindus. For decades Dr. Doniger has been masquerading as a scholar on Hinduism and in the Sanskrit language. However Wales Professor of Sanskrit at Harvard Michael Witzel has described Wendy’s translations of rig veda, jaiminiya brahmana and manusmriti in these stark terms – ‘lacking common sense’, ‘unreliable’, ‘idiosyncratic’ ,and “a stream of unconnected George-Bush-like anacoluths “.
In the words of the BBC, “Doniger is known for being rude, crude and very lewd in the hallowed portals of Sanskrit Academics”.
She called the Bhagavad Gita (one of the most sacred Hindu scripture and a classic of world religious literature) a “dishonest book” that “justifies war.”
We condemn this book for its gross factual errors and gratuitously hurtful and contemptuous depictions e.g. comparing revered Hindu goddesses to Playboy models, mocking Hindus as unfaithful “serial monogamists”. This book caricatures Hinduism in a grossly offensive and degrading manner.
Doniger wants this book to be used as a “basic textbook” on Hinduism and India. Not only will this book subject students to a warped, false and bigoted version of Hinduism, it will also expose Indian-American youth to ridicule and bigotry.
Narain Kataria, President of the Indian American Intellectuals Forum (IAIF), one of the organizers of the protest said that most learned scholars of Hinduism and Sanskrit do not think highly of Doniger. They have totally rejected Doniger’s deceptive claims of being a Sanskrit scholar and they have also stated that her understanding of Hinduism is very superficial and often dead wrong. To repeat, the above book by Dr. Doniger is a work that promotes bigotry, racism and intolerance. According to one Hindu Sanskrit scholar “Her Rg Veda – I own a copy – illustrates her poor knowledge of Sanskrit and her translation is just literal, if at all. She does not have the depth of knowledge to delve deep into Hindu texts and unravel their real meaning”.
We held the demonstration to expose her bogus scholarship about Hinduism and discredit her in the eyes of academia using objective and factual criteria. Our purpose was to caution NBCC to think twice before considering Doniger for any honor.
By giving a pornographic twist to Hindu objects of veneration and worship, Doniger is trying to create the illusion that Hinduism is nothing but a crude immoral religion. This has the potential to create disaffection, disillusionment and depression in the minds of Hindu children about Hindu Dharma.
We organized the demonstration to protest those who willingly and deliberately support Dr. Wendy Deniger’s anti-Hindu agenda.
In no particular order, the following Hindu organizations/leaders from the New York and New Jersey metropolitan area participated in this protest:
Raju Nanoo, Chairman, Trustee Board, Kerala Hindus of North America;
Dr. Vasudeva C. Murthy, President, Kannada Koota;
Srinivas Shakelly, Forum for Hindu Awakening;
Bidyut Sarkar, International Federation of Bangladeshi Hindus and Friends;
Sher Bahadur Singh, Member, Board of Directors, International Hindi Samiti;
Sunanda Thali, Hindu Human Rights Watch;
Ramen Nandi, Bharat Sevashram Sangh;
Nagendra Rao, President, Sanatana Dharma Pratishsthapana Foundation;
Dr. Sudhakar Reddy, Overseas Friends of Bharatiya Janata Party (OFBJP);
Kamal Pandey of Foundation of Nepalese in America;
Sher Bahadur Singh of Rashtravadi Gorkha Seva Dal;
Arish Sahani and Nand Ramsinghani of Indian American Intellectuals Forum; and USHA.
Upananda Brahmachari of Hindu Existence expressed his pleasure about the success of the above protest and requested the organizer to move further in vehement protests, agitations, demonstrations, signature campaigns against Dr. Wendy Doniger and her book “Hindus: An Alternative History” ,whatever and whenever it is possible.
The Critical analysis of Upananda Brahmachari upon Doniger ‘s book will be published here soon. Keep watching.

New Delhi, March 15, 2010|| HT NEWS|| In a shocking incident, a temple priest allegedly raped a 22-year-old mentally unstable girl in Saket in South Delhi.
Police say, the priest allegedly took the girl to his room to get some vegetables cut and raped her. The incident reportedly took place on March 4 at the Shiv Mandir in Pushp Vihar Sector-1.
Santosh Kumar Tiwari (40), the accused, has been arrested.
“He had fled from the temple but returned on Sunday evening to gather his things. The victim’s brother spotted him and caught him with the help of his family members. When a PCR reached the spot, the accused was being beaten up. The cops arrested and took him to AIIMS,” said a police officer.
The police said the priest had raped the woman when she had come to the temple with her cousin after her weekly fast on March 4. “It was around 10:30 am when the priest asked her to help her cut vegetables. Her cousin left. He took her to his room and raped her,” added the officer. Tiwari, a native of Varanasi, had been a priest at the temple for six years.
Keshav Kumar Bhatt, one of the four temple priests, said the victim had come to the temple with her cousin. “None of us were aware until the girl’s mother reached the temple around 8 pm and accused Tiwari of raping her daughter. He managed to escape,” said Bhatt.
The police said that a case was registered. Tiwari was arrested after the girl’s medical examination confirmed rape.
Hindu Existence vehemently condemns this type of nefarious handiwork of such culprit priest-men.
Aum Sam Buddha Suvaya Samjunaktu !! Let our consciousness be connected with supreme goodness !!

2nd Shahi Snan at Haridwar Purna Kumbha 2010 on Somavati Amavashya !!!
Hara Hara Gange !! Hara Hara Gange !! Jai Ganga Ji !! Jai Maa Gange !!!
Press Trust Of India||Haridwar, March 15, 2010
Nearly 60 lakh pilgrims on Monday took a holy dip in river Ganga in Haridwar on the occasion of Somvati Amavasya, which also witnessed Mahakumbh’s second royal bath involving sadhus belonging all the 13 Akharas (sects).
Akhara members reached the Har-Ki-Pauri, the main bathing ghat, in colourful processions as thousands of pilgrims and followers lined the roads with folded hands.
The procession of Joona Akhara saw huge flags and nearly 10,000 Naga Sadhus.
Somvati Amavasya or a no moon day falling on Monday is considered auspicious according to Hindu calender. This was the first bath during the ongoing Mahakumbh when Sadhus of all the 13 Akharas took a dip in river Ganga.
Nearly 60 lakh pilgrims including Sadhus took holy dip on the occassion of Somvati Amavasya in Kumbh area, said Kumbh Mela officer Anand Vardhan.
The nearly 15-km-long ghat in Haridwar and Rishikesh was flooded with devottes since last midnight.
Elaborate security arrangements were made for today’s ‘shahi snan’ or royal bath where the sadhus are given priority access to the river.
The bath passed off peacefully and no untoward incident was reported from anywhere, Vardhan said.
The third and fourth royal baths would be held on Mar 30 (Chaitra Purnima) and Apr 14 (Mesh Sankranti) respectively.
There will be 11 baths, including 4 royal baths, during the three-month long Mahakumbh that began on Jan 14 (Makar Sankranti) this year.

Daily rituals in Sri Jagannath temple hit
STAFF WRITER PTI 21:31 HRS IST
Puri, March 15 (PTI) The elaborate daily rituals at the 12th century Sri Jagannath temple here went haywire today due to protests by a group of priests against hike in ‘darshan’ fee in the sanctum sanctorum.
Sri Jagannath Temple Managing Committee decided to effect a four-fold fee hike for ‘Paramanik Darshan’ (glimpse of the deities from very close range) of Lord Jagannath, Balbhadra and Subhadra from today.
In protest against the decision, ‘Pratihari Sevaks’, who check the tickets of devotees and close the doors in front of the sanctum sanctorum, stayed away from the shrine causing disruption in the rituals.
As a result, no food was served to the deities throughout the day.
However, after the day-long impasse, normalcy was restored in the evening with the opening of the temple kitchen.
Hindu Existence condemns both the hike of ‘Paramanik Darshan’ fees in four fold and the strike of opposing ‘Pratihari Sevaks’.
As per Hindu belief Lord Vishnu uses to bathe, shine, dine and rest in four different holy places in the four corners of Bharata Varsha at Rameswaram, Dwarka, Badrinath and Puri, mostly known as Chardham. The four Shankara Mutths were established in these strategical points in Bharata by Adi Shankara for the cultural unification of this holy land as a land-mark of Sanatana Dharma. The Jagannath Puri is the lovable place to dine of My Lord. But we put impediment in the Lord’s kitchen. It is our imprudence that made a lot of improper way of misdeed. My Lord ! Forgive us !!
Jagannatha Swami Nayana pathagami bhabatu me ! Jagannatha Swami Nayana pathagami bhabatu me ! Hare Krishna !!!

Bareilly under curfew for 12th day after the Jihadists made a havoc upon Hindus.
“A large part of Bareilly is under curfew for the 12th day running. On March 2, the day after Holi, a communal riot had broke out injuring many people. The police have decided to take no chances.
“We have nothing to do with the riots. But we are the ones who are suffering,” said Shopkeeper.
Bareilly looks like a town under siege. The riot still simmers under the surface. The fear of a backlash among civilians is huge.
On Thursday, Chief Minister Mayawati saw to it that Maulana Tauqir Raza Khan, an accused in the riot, was released.
It served two purposes: The Maulana’s angry supporters did not resort to more violence and the Muslim vote was pacified.
But it gave Bajrang Dal arsenal. Partymen set shops and vehicles on fire pushing an already tense town to the edge.
“Ten people have been arrested for arson and stone-pelting,” said Brijlal Mohan, Additional Director General, Law & Order, Uttar Pradesh.
Add to this chaos, the BJP rushed in to consolidate the Hindu vote.
Soon, Congress and the Samajwadi Party leaders were also trying to reach Bareilly because staying away could be a political setback in a state where Muslim politics is a big decider.
The police kept them all away.
Even a riot can become a field of political upmanship as Bareilly is learning.” ….. NDTV reports the matter in such a way on 12th March 2010 but it clearly ignored the Jihadi mentality that fueled the situation in the worst. But some Hindu public in troubled Bareilly raised the question below.
Jihadi Riot in Bareilly, Where are the Media Giants?
Fanatic Jihadis celeberated Mohammad’s birthday by looting Kafir’s shops and burning Kafir’s Houses. Hindus and Sikhs were under target by Fanatic Jihadi mob.Hindus were told not to play Holi in the Roads were Jihadi’s are taking processions to celeberate Mohammad’s birthday
The administration is unable to control the Jihadi riots in Bareili started on March 2nd , a day after holi, all thanks to the hate speech by a Muslim cleric Maulana Tauquir Raza Khan, president of the Ittehad-e-Millat Council.
UP Police arrested Maulana Tauquir Raza Khan, president of the Ittehad-e-Millat Council, from Bareilly, for his “rabble rousing speech” that had led to communal tension in the district last week.
While Media’s were competing to air the clips of Post Godhra riots , No such enthusiasm is seen now to report this in our 24×7 Channells or Mainstream Media.

Even Hindus and Sikhs have no right for Marriage Registration in Pakistan.
Monday, March 01, 2010
ISLAMABAD:PHP|| The Bill for the registration of the marriages of over 2 million people from Hindu fraternity living in the country would be tabled in the National Assembly within the next three months, Geo News reported Monday.
It should be mentioned that there is no system in the country for the registration of marriages in minorities including Hindus, Sikhs and Bha’is.
Federal Minister for Minorities Shahbaz Bhatti told the National Assembly that the government was yet to promulgate the Hindu Marriage Act because the Hindu community was still following centuries-old traditions while solemnizing marriages.
In response to a question raised by Ms Parveen Massod Bhatti, he said that marriages of Hindus were not registered. However, he said, the ministry had initiated a consultation process to come up with a legislation.
Bhatti said the government intends to bring the Minority Protection Bill within next three months after consultations with the representatives of minorities in this connection under auspices of the Ministry of Minorities.

ISLAMABAD: Pakistani security forces on Monday recovered two of three Sikhs kidnapped for ransom in the country’s volatile northwest, a security official said, days after the body of the third Sikh was found.
The three Sikhs were abducted from the Khyber region on the Afghan border in January. The decapitated body of one of them was found last week.
Government forces launched an operation early on Monday and rescued the remaining two Sikhs.
“Some terrorists have also been killed in the fighting,” a security official, who asked not to be identified, told Reuters.
Sikhs are a tiny minority in predominantly Muslim Pakistan, but a sizeable community has lived in Khyber and elsewhere in the northwest. Most of them run private businesses.
Khyber has long been a den for criminal syndicates involved in kidnapping, smuggling, drug trafficking and car-jackings.
Criminals are also believed to have established links with militants in recent years.
Three militants were also killed in a shootout with security forces near the North Waziristan region on the Afghan border, while the bodies of five militants were found in the northwestern Swat region on Monday, security officials said.
