Kashmiri Hindus reclaim 5,000 years of Hindu History and Hindu Rights in Kashmir. Where were Muslims before 1432 years of Islam in this world?

A Hindu worships in a Srinagar Temple

Hindus reclaim 5,000 years of history

Monday, 18 April 2011|| Andrew Buncombe || The Independent

By restoring temples in the Muslim region of Kashmir, the Pandit community is also preserving its past. Andrew Buncombe reports :

At a Hindu temple in the centre of Srinagar, Sanjay Tickoo scattered petals, lit a candle and quietly voiced the words of a prayer. He then stepped backwards, slid shut a metal grille and carefully locked-up the premises with a sturdy padlock.

Twenty five years ago, Mr Tickoo’s actions would have been unremarkable. Though the Kashmir valley has for centuries had a Muslim majority, its Hindu population – commonly known as Pandits – were always an integral part of the community. Some Hindus claim their history here dates back thousands of years.

When a separatist militancy gathered pace two decades ago, up to 400,000 Hindus either fled or were driven out. Many people were killed and most of their properties and temples were sold, destroyed or taken over by the security forces who had been sent in to counter the militants.

But over the last couple of years, something special has been happening in Kashmir. Mr Tickoo and other members of the small Hindu population that remained have set about restoring the temples, shrines and other sacred places. He claims several dozen such places have been repaired or reactivated.

“After the mass exodus of the Pandits, around 98 per cent of the temples were not attended. Only 23 temples have remained in constant use,” said 42-year-old Mr Tickoo, president of the Kashmiri Pandit Sangarsh Samiti, an NGO.

“We are doing it to improve Kashmiri society. But when we say we have a 5,000-year history in Kashmir … the history belongs to me only because of my presence in the valley. My identity is directly linked to the temples. If they disappear I cannot claim we have a 5,000-year history in the valley.”

The plight of Kashmir’s Hindus is one of the overlooked tragedies of south Asia. While Kashmir’s Muslim population has attracted international attention for its long and often violent struggle for autonomy, which has resulted in the Indian authorities dispatching hundreds of thousands of troops and paramilitaries, the Pandits are often forgotten, even in their own country. Today, it is estimated there are fewer than 4,000 (Kashmiri Hindus*) still here in the valleyRead the full story here —–> Courtesy : The Independent

A disputed region where the rights of Hindus have been snatched away by the Islamists: 

Abdullah a Muslim Priest in Hindu Shiva Temple named "Mamaleswar" near Pahelgam. Hindu Religious Rights is grossly violated in whole of Kashmir valley.

** Most of the Hindus, or Kashmiri Pandits, almost 400000 in numbers, who fled the Kashmir valley, left in a matter of months between the end of 1989 and 1990 when an armed militancy by elements of the Muslim community demanding autonomy gathered pace. Now it is believed that only  4,000 (Kashmiri Hindus*) still live here in the Kashmir valley.

** Many took the decision to leave after certain mosques broadcast demands for them to quit and newspapers printed similar messages. It was those days when the threats of Raliv, Galiv Ya Chaliv (Convert, die or escape) replaced the sounds of evening Azaan (prayers) from majority of mosques in the valley of Kashmir.

** Gradually, the leadership of the Muslim community has accepted its responsibility for the exodus. And Muslims of Kashmir en-grabbed all the absolute rights of Islam under Sharia, and riduculed the Indian Constitutional frame work.

** Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, leader of a coalition of separatist organisations, the All Parties Hurriyat Conference, said: “We cannot deny that they had to leave the valley in very difficult circumstances at a time when there was a lot of chaos.”  The crocodile’s tear of these Hurriyat and other political leaders cannot shower any solace to the over-plighted Hindus of Kashmir valley.

** Farooq Abdullah, a former chief minister of the state and currently a federal minister in Delhi, said earlier this year: “It is our fault [that] the Kashmiri Hindus have been made homeless and forced to live outside.” This gesture of Farooq or Omar Abdullah or Mehbooba Mufti for conveying some good for persecuted Hindus is nothing but perfect Al Taqiyya.

Mohammedan fanatics burned sacred Hindu scripture “Srimad Bhagabad Gita” after destroying 555 yrs old Hindu temple complex in Islamic Republic of Bangladesh.

Posted by hinduexistence on April 13, 2011

Srimad Bhagavad Gita burned, Srivas Angan destructed and partially grabbed by Islamists in Bangladesh.

Hindu Existence Media Watch reports from Dhaka : In the series attack upon the Hindu Temples in Bangladesh in recent months, aiming to frighten the minority Hindus there and to grab the Hindu temple properties within a so called secular regime of Awami League Govt. headed by Sheikh Hasina, latest feed back came to us about a total resentment of the retaliating Hindus in the nefarious design of burning of “Srimad Bhagabad Gita” in the temple complex of Sribas Angan in the vicinity of Beyani Bazar of Sylhet district. Before this culpable act the Islamist perpetrators destroyed the ancestral deities of this “Sree Sree Lakshmi Narayan”, “Lord Shiva” and “Radha Madhav Jiu” of Achray Sribas Swami, a great Sanskrit scholar ever and the champion companion of Sree Sree Chaitanya Mahaprabhu (1486–1534), a great spiritual leader in India for his Bhakti Movement.

The ancestral complex Sribas Acharya is considered as a heritage monument and   famous Tirtha Khestra (pilgrimage resort) for Hindus comprising with very old “Sree Sree Lakshmi Narayan Mandir”, “Pancha Tattva Mandir”, and “Siva Mandir” was destroyed by the local Mohammedan land grabbers and perpetrators.

On 02.04.11, morning at about 10.00 am in  broad day light, local influential perpetrators and land grabbers backed by ruling parties burned at least ten copies of Sreemad Bhagbad Gita with many religious books in front of local people after rampaging the whole pilgrimage complex to ensure a Islamic capture over a Hindu rights upon a temple property(Devottar sampatti). The fanatic Mohammedans successfully tried to destroy the relics of famous library building of Srivas Swami where a good collection of Hindu classic literatures and scriptures were the main attraction for the erudite students of the Master Srivas, across eastern India. It is believed that Srivas Swami started here an indigenous block print method (printing press) to copy old Sanskrit Texts. For a very unfortunate fate of the Hindus in Bangladesh all these historical and religious monuments  have almost been perished into the Islamic aggression and the Government negligence.

After the traumatic burning of Sreemad Bhagbad Gita and other religious books and the rampant rampage of deities and temple properties, the area of incident of  Khasa Pandit Para, Beyani Bazar, Sylhet (the old historic SRIHATTA), tension raised a level of retaliation and the aggrieved Hindu locals lodged a FIR in Biyani Bazar Police Station vide no. 03/02-04-2011,  u/s 143/448/294/323/379/380/506. It has come to know that one Janab Dipu Sheikh  and his gang have been operating to encroach the entire five bigha (1.65 acre) of this temple property. The Muslim attackers tried to murder Sri Siddha Gaur Das Brahmachari the monk-in-charge of the temple premises and throw away all the broken deties into a nearby pond after rampaging abruptly. The perpetrators also snatched away the donation box of the main temple. Janab Dipu Sheikh maintains his political connection with Awami League and Jamat e Islami – Bangladesh, both hand in hand. Dipu has open criminal connection with Islamist to run his persecution program upon minority Hindu women, Hindu shopkeepers, general Hindu minorities and Hindu land grabbing. One Sabul Ali of Dipu’s gange physically assaulted Siddha Gaur Das Brahmachari and attempted to murder this monk-in-charge. The political affiliation vested in Dipu’s group made them a terror to the Hindu locals.

In a protest the Math Mandir O Devottar Sampatti Raksha Samity (MMDSRS) of 79 Swamibag Road, Dhaka -1100, held an urgent press conference on 12th April 2011 at 11 am in the Dhaka Reporters’ unit, VIP Lounge, Segun Bagicha, Dhaka to draw the attention of all concerned to protect the growing torture upon Bangladeshi Hindus along with their temples, landed properties, business, women folk and even animals possessed by them.

In a very anguished PRESS statement by MMDSRS, its convener Satya Ranjan Barai conveyed that the paramount cry of the Bangladeshi Minority Hindus do not touch even any civil society of  Bangladesh, which denotes its fake secularist attitude to the damn apathy to a Hindu persecution and ethnic cleansing. Prominent Hindu activists present there demanded immediate arrest and punishments of the Muslim perpetrators caused a hell and burning of Srimad Bhagavad Gita in Srivas Angan.

In the press note MMDSRS accused the present Enemy Property Act and its Amendments, which fueled all the Muslims to grab all Hindu properties as Muslims consider Hindus as enemies. And this is the stand point of a so called liberal Govt in Bangladesh.

In the press statement, convener of  MMDSRS pointed out in the recent past, the 200 yrs old Radha Govinda Jiu Temple at 222 Lal Mohan Saha Street, Sutrapur, Dhaka is under the Islamic scanner to grab it. Land Mafia Hazi Islam Uddin, Hazi Afjal Hossian and local Awami League President of 77 no ward, Hazi Abul Hossian Abul clubbed together to occupy the temple forcefully. Their men have been threatening the temple authorities as Hindus must close all Muth (resident of monastic orders) and Mandirs (temple) to ease the land grabbing by these Muslim Land mafias in BD. (vide GD no. 1841 dt 28-03-2011 of Ramna Model P.S.).

In another incident, Abul Hossain Abul threatened the opposition Hindus, ” If you people do not leave your temples and religious institutions, we will not allow any kaffir Hindus to stay here peacefully. Any kind of Hindu protest will be stopped with a severe communal riot” with in very office of Addl. Police Superintendent, City SB, Dhaka. No authority could resist a venomous Abul Hossian for a while. (vide GD no. 1556 de 28-03-2011 of Sutrapur P.S.)

In Rampura area of Dhaka, where 220-225 Hindu families reside, one Rajauk Ali encroached 75% land of a Hindu crematorium beside the “Sree Sree Gouranga Maha Pravu Mandir”, Now Rajauk is trying to occupy the lone Hindu temple of this area, for which Hindus are determined to fight Land Grabbing Jehad in Bangladesh. It is also reported that the Awami League MP Jajid Malik has destroyed one temple in Urkiya, 2 km away from Manikganj town to vacate a Hindu possession of Golak Mondal and Sarat Mondal for a proposed hospital there. In the name of so called development, hospitals, cattle houses, slaughter houses, multi storied buildings; the Hindus properties are being snatched, even not giving a minimum price.

Pointing out an overwhelming discrimination to Hindus, it is told that when a Madrasha educated teacher gets his salary in a regular scale, then a Sanskrit scholar gets an honorarium of only Taka 120/- pm. As the Muslims claim their superiority  in BD, Hindus there are treated as III class citizen. These Hindus also fought a brave fight and got tremendous torture from Pak platoons at the time of struggle of Free Bangladesh. The Math Mandir O Devottar Sampatti Raksha Samity has a plan to protest and hunger strike all over the Hindu pockets in BD. ISKCON Bangladesh is very much aggrieved as the maximum attacks are held in the Vaisnavite Goudiya Temples.

On behalf of MMDSRS, Pinaki Das, a Hind activist of BD forwarded a mail demanding justice in favour of BD Hindus as : “WE DEMAND PROPER PUNISHMENT TO OUR  GOVERNMENT. PLEASE HELP US AND CREATE PRESSURE TO THEM FOR INITIATING PROPER STEPS.

WE NEED FOREIGN ASSISTANCE FOR DEMANDING JUSTICE AND PLEASE SAVE THE HINDU TEMPLE LANDS WHICH HAVE ALREADY BEEN GRABBED BY THE ISLAMIC PERPETRATORS.”

Battle won, war on. Anna Hazare wants a value based, corruption free, Prosperous India within people’s activism and profound amity.

Posted by hinduexistence on April 10, 2011

Anna Hazare’s fight against corruption: Battle won, war on….

NEW DELHI| Durgesh Nandan Jha, TNN | Apr 10, 2011: The instant of victory came on Saturday at 10.30am. Having humbled a government and captured the imagination of a nation, the frail 73-year-old broke his fast by first offering sips of water to women who had fasted with him. Anna Hazare then had a glass of juice.

The Gandhian leader’s marathon ended on the fifth morning of his protest with a large crowd of supporters breaking into loud cheers even as hundreds more poured in at Jantar Mantar, ground zero of the campaign to ensure civil society’s participation in drafting the Lokpal Bill.

Hazare held aloft a copy of the official notification constituting a joint committee and said “In this fight against corruption, India has won, not Anna. You have shown we are united. But the fight must continue.” He warned he will be back if the law to combat corruption in public life is not passed by August 15.

That lies is in the future. On Saturday morning firecrackers went off and people smeared gulaal on one another, a celebration that will freeze frame a historical moment.

“I will not let this public movement die down. If the government does not pass the bill in Lok Sabha in the monsoon session, I will carry the national flag on my shoulders to protest once again,” he said. “Next on my agenda is working for the right to recall,” Hazare added.

Hazare pointed out the pitfalls. “I know that there will be further impediments in the implementation of this new bill, which will ensure action against corrupt politicians and bureaucrats and bring in accountability”

His question “Will you support me?” had the crowd roaring in affirmation. “Anna tum sangharsh karo, hum tumhare saath hain,” they yelled.  Read details here…….

‘Anna’lyzing  India against Corruption.

Upananda Brahmachari connects from Kolkata : Undoubtedly Anna won in this phase of battle against corruption. But it’s just a start to an end. Today I joined the Anna’s victory rally (9th March. 2011) in Kolkata from Mahajati Sadan to the Gandhi Statue at Maidan. It was spontaneous and sensational as like many other places of India. But there were many of them, I know personally, who are just shifting their places of corruption to have a clean image through a march on the street and candle lights. Yes, they have intentions to stealthily occupy major places to ruin this run for a new revolution . We have to cautious about that.

Anna’s movement is not just easy one to watch and catch some moments into facebook or twitter or to be in a great crowd. It is a process to change our mind set-up for a “Suddha achar.. Suddha Vichar… Niskalank Jeevan… Tayg…..” as said by Annaji. Oh ! What a great revelation of the traditional Bhartiya way of Life. “Perfect behavior, pure wisdom, untainted life, Sacrifice….” Do we agree with Anna really?

Corruption rests in Mind of people and spreads in Rules, Finance, Society, System and overall. Communalism is another form of corrupted mind-set. We have to uproot this corruption from our mind from everybody. A common man to politician. From a businessman to a home tutor. We have to take an oath to save our country from corruption. Only bringing the stashed money from Swiss Bank will end the corruption? No. Enactment of the Jan Lokpal Bill will end up corruptions? No.   But, all these are the certain powerful tools to set strong machinery against Corruption. But unless and until the Human resources are free from corruption, nothing shall be happened.

Thinking envious to the neighbors will make us corrupt, not discharging the stipulated responsibilities in time makes a vicious circle of corruption and bribes, debauchery in life tends a corrupted life, the sprawling subversiveness survives in corruption, Political ambitions without the prosperity of the people makes us completely “Corrupted” and my corruption and your corruption made this Nation, easy to say as “Corrupted”. Yes, this is the time to say no to “Corruption”. Anna started to set a “Corruption” free India. We have to follow it hermetically.

Certainly the most significant feature of this Anti-Corruption Movement is to bring the mass from all strata of life, all beliefs, all rights group and different organisations across the country even touches the hearts of millions of Indians dwell out side India. The whole country saw the fervor of the growing sentiment in favor of Nationalism and against the political corrupts, bankrupt bureaucrats and the media moles in the system. And after all, the reluctant and repulsive Govt crowned with corruptions bent to the protesting populace demanding a strong law enforcement against Corruption with the direct representation o the Republic of India. Now such a necessary law is possible. That may be a nightmare of the corrupted politicians, bureaucrats, media moles, NGOists.  But we have to draw the dream lines of the Corruption Free India for which millions of youngsters and the youths marched these days with the older generations even.

Yes, only Anna can do this. Perhaps, He is the uncrowned King of India. All responded him to join the cause. The Bharat Swabhiman Trust, Art of Living, ABVP, RSS all joined with another thousands for this great cause. We saw Swami Ramdev and Ram  Madhav in a frame. We saw Medha Patker and Anupam Kher side by side. The Buddhist monks and the Jain Munis were on the stage, at the same time Farah Khan could not resist her to reach Jantar Mantar, keeping aside her busy schedule of Bollywood. Hindus worshiped and offered ‘aahuti’ in Mass Yanga (fire rituals) in the street, while Muslims and Christians prayed for the success of Anna’s fast at Jantar Mantar. The whole India were with Anna these days and must remain with him. The feelings are My India, My Bharat – against inconsistency of the system so far, against big beefed ‘bhastrachar’ (corruption) in India. Anna surfaced the potential Oneness of India. Ekatma Bharat. And not detracting and rejecting any thing for the good of this Republic, Anna solicited the strength from Vivekananda to Gandhi, Laxmibai to Bhagat Singh-Chandrasekhar Azad, from Dayananda to Rammonhar Lohia. Anna symbolized him as a modern saint of India with a traditional vision and values. Anna’s scientific approach for the rural reconstruction in Ralegan Siddhi with preserving all the Indian values and ethics may serve as a role model in every aspirant rural corners of India too. Now a modern India can stand up with its own identity along with rationality and modernity.

I am still in the rhythms of little school girls who were shouting very enthusiastically in the street rally after Anna broke his fast in the fifth day – ‘Ek  do tin char, dur karenge bhastrachar’ , ‘hamara neta kaisa ho, Anna Hazare Jaisa Ho’…. I was also clapping and shouting in the same way.

Bande Mataram, Bharat Mata ki Jai. Jai Hind.

MG : A pseudo religious person tormented between Spirituality & Sexuality?

Posted by hinduexistence on April 8, 2011

 

‘I never wrote that Gandhi was bisexual’

Last updated on: April 7, 2011 || rediff.com

Joseph Lelyveld, whose book on Mahatma Gandhi has infuriated many, tellsRediff.com‘s Arthur J Pais how the controversy went viral.

Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Joseph Lelyveld has three words for those who have banned or sought to ban his book Great Soul – Mahatma Gandhi and His Struggle with India: “Read it carefully.”

Speaking to Rediff.com from his New York home, he says the passages about Mahatma Gandhi’s friendship with Herman Kallenbach, the German architect Gandhi lived with for about four years in Johannesburg, that have offended some people — who probably haven’t read the book — have been misunderstood, and in two specific cases, deliberately distorted.

Gandhi’s sex life laid bare in new book

LiveLeak presents some facts:

A new book on Mahatma Gandhi has delved into the intimate life of the Indian icon whose famous vow of chastity did not prevent him sleeping with naked women and conducting bizarre sex “experiments”.

“Gandhi: Naked Ambition” by British historian Jad Adams sheds new light on the spiritual leader and independence hero whose spartan existence and resistance to earthly pleasures are an integral part of his popular image.

The book has been released in Britain and will be available soon in India where it is bound to make waves in a country where Gandhi’s image is fiercely protected and a source of national pride.

That his attitudes to sex were censorious and unusual is well known. He wrote of his disgust at himself for having intercourse with his wife Kasturba, aged 15, when his father died in 1885.

In later life, having fathered four children, he forbade even married couples in his ashram retreats from having sex and lectured men on the need to take a cold bath when they felt lustful.

More than 60 years after Gandhi’s death, Adams has gone through hundreds of pages of his writings and eyewitness accounts to build a behind-closed-doors picture of a man considered both a saint and the father of the nation in India.

“One of things you find about Gandhi is how much he wrote about sex,” Adams told AFP by telephone from his home in London.

“When we look at his sexuality, what happens is that he has a perfectly normal sex life for the first part of his life, one that would be recognisable to almost anyone in the world.

“He gets married and has a family of four.

“But what interested me was that he made a decision that it would be a good idea to be chaste (in 1900). Six years later, he makes a vow and puts it into practice.”

But contrary to the image of the abstemious Hindu ascetic, in later life Gandhi frequently bathed with nubile young women, had nude massages and often shared a bed with one or more of his followers, Adams’ book said. Read more here……

Oldest Hindu temple under Jihadi attack in Australia. Islamists sprayed bullets.Hindu community express concern over temple attacks and growing Radical Islam in Australia.

Australia’s oldest Hindu temple, the Sri Mandir in Auburn is considered as the holiest Shiva-Shakti Peetham for all the Australian & New Zealand Hindus. A serene picture in night-time.

Gunshots prompt prayers for peace

April 3, 2011

Behind-the-scenes talks are trying to put a stop to terrifying, violent attacks on a minority religious community, write Eamonn Duff and Natalie O’Brien in The Sydney Morning Herald.

IT BEGAN with minor acts of vandalism, including egg throwing and smashed windows, but instead of remaining periodic footnotes in the night log at Auburn police station, the incidents have grown so violent – and the issue so culturally sensitive – that even authorities are reluctant to speak about them publicly. Australia’s oldest Hindu temple, the Sri Mandir in Auburn, is under siege and its devotees gripped by fear.

On March 19, two men in balaclavas stood at the intersection of a nearby road, spraying the front of the prayer hall with eight rounds of bullets. The building was unoccupied at the time.

The busy Hindu temple opened in 1977. It is surrounded by a predominantly Muslim population and it is no secret among locals that tensions have been simmering in recent years, caused by concerns about noise and parking problems at Sri Mandir.
”There is no excuse [for the gun attack],” the editor of Sydney newspaper The Indian, Rohit Revo, said.

”This was not the work of teenagers; neither was it a petty prank. This is part of a sustained and increasingly violent campaign to scare the temple devotees and drive them out. By definition, this latest attack was an act of terrorism.”

The Sun-Herald is aware the ongoing feud has caused disquiet among some of the most senior police in western Sydney. In a rare move, details of the shooting were deliberately held back from the NSW police media unit through concern that publicity might inflame hostilities.

Auburn City Council claims the first it knew of the incident was when The Sydney Morning Herald published an article on Wednesday. Since then, the chairman of the Community Relations Commission, Stepan Kerkyasharian, has stepped in as an intermediary between Hindus and Muslims.

”Given the enormity and complexity of the issues, this is a classic example where we need to apply the principles of multiculturalism and get people to understand and accept that we are a religiously diverse community … we live together and we respect each other’s religious diversity,” he told The Sun-Herald.

”We will be pursuing this through the commission and meeting people in the neighbourhood to discuss the issues. I will be very active in the area.”

Temple priest Jatinkumar Bhatt is praying for a peaceful solution for the sake of his three young children. Bhatt and his family live behind the temple and are too frightened to go outdoors after dark.

”On the night of the shooting, we heard the noise, but every 10 or 15 days we experience the sound of firecrackers being thrown [over the fence], so we thought it must be that again,” Mr Bhatt said.

”Then the police came. They showed me the bullet holes in the walls and asked permission to come in and investigate. I am too afraid to say why I think this is happening.”

In an attack in November, four men wielding iron bars smashed their way through 10-millimetre- thick windows, showering the hall with glass while devotees were praying inside.

The temple recently held a community open day in the hope of brokering fresh ties with the wider community.

”Many of our neighbours are very friendly but sometimes it feels like we are in a different place to Australia,” Mr Bhatt said. ”The attacks are now always. It is like in Libya or Afghanistan.”

Mr Kerkyasharian has met the Bhatt family. ”The teenage daughter says she feels like she lives in a prison,” he said. ”She said her younger brother doesn’t know how to play because they are too scared to go outside to their front yard.”

The founder of the Islamic Friendship Association of Australia, Keysar Trad, said he had given a speech at the open day, in which he stressed the need to ”respect religious places of all faiths”.

”I am convinced these problems are not being caused by people who are religious and would urge the Muslim community to show support and solidarity to their neighbours at this time,” he said.

Flemington local area commander Superintendent Phillip Rogerson said police were trying to identify the attackers. Auburn Labor MP Barbara Perry said: ”I’ve got every sympathy for the Hindu community. This type of behaviour should not be tolerated.”

Upananda Brahmachari of Hindu Existence adds : Actually all these come under the religious duties of the devout (read Jihadi) Muslim people towards the ‘Cow worshipers’, that’s what Muslims call Hindus, who don’t enjoy the  ‘protection’  of  Muslims under the dhimma. Hindus worship Cow Goddess. As the Muslims does not tolerate the Hindus, kill cows and eat its flesh. Nothing astonishing in this Jihad against ‘cow worshipers’ leaves interfaith outreach in tatters….

This busy Hindu temple at Auburn opened in 1977. It is surrounded by a predominantly Muslim population and it is no secret among locals that tensions have been simmering in recent years, caused by concerns about noise and parking problems at Sri Mandir.

But Hindus never practiced to protect their temples from the demonic jihadis like the deities they worship in side that very temples. Hindus forget how God Shiva used his Trishuls (Trident), Goddess Durga used ten weapons at a time, Lord Ram used Bow & Arrow , Lord Krishna used his Sudarshan Chakra (Supersonic Wheel Weapon) and Goddess Kalika used her Scimitar – all against the ashuras ( the demonic forces).

It is indeed difficult to procure the weapons of God and Goddesses at present. But we must try to take the advantages of new inventions for our self-protection, protection of our  Hindu society, our women folk, our temples, our areas and obviously the Hindu prestige. Otherwise please, don’t build any new temple for another humiliation by these fundamentalists. Always keep it mind : OFFENCE IS THE BEST DEFENSE.
