Honour of Sanskrit, Veda, Upanishad, Gita and Hindu Dharma in USA. The West is attracted with ancient Sanskrit Culture of Bharat, but the political maroons in India just discard it !!
With Hindu prayers California’s City Council Opened.
Just before the Newman City Council Hindu invocation, from left to right, are— Councilmember Nicholas Candea, Mayor Pro Tem Robert Martina, Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, Mayor Ed Katen and Councilmember Roberta Davis.
spyghana.com | Newman City | 11 April, 2014:: Newman City Council in California (USA), which celebrated 125th Anniversary in 2013, had its first historic Hindu invocation on April eight (08-04-2014, Tuesday) evening, containing verses from world’s oldest existing scripture.
Distinguished Hindu statesman Rajan Zed delivered the opening prayer from ancient Sanskrit scriptures before the City Council. After Sanskrit delivery, he then read the English translation of the prayer. Sanskrit is considered a sacred language in Hinduism and root language of Indo-European languages.
Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, recited from Rig-Veda, the oldest scripture of the world still in common use, besides lines from Upanishads and Bhagavad-Gita (Song of the Lord), both ancient Hindu scriptures. He started and ended the prayer with “Om”, the mystical syllable containing the universe, which in Hinduism is used to introduce and conclude religious work.
Reciting from Brahadaranyakopanishad, Rajan Zed said, “Asato ma sad gamaya, Tamaso ma jyotir gamaya, Mrtyor mamrtam gamaya”, which he then translated as “Lead me from the unreal to the Real, Lead me from darkness to Light, and Lead me from death to Immortality.” Reciting from Bhagavad-Gita, he urged councilmembers to keep the welfare of others always in mind. Councilmembers, city employees and public were seen standing in prayer mode with their heads bowed down during this invocation.
Wearing saffron colored attire, a ruddraksh mala (rosary), and traditional sandalpaste tilak (religious mark) on the forehead, Zed sprinkled few drops of water from river Ganga of India, considered holy by Hindus, around the podium before the prayer. Zed presented a copy ofBhagavad-Gita to Mayor Ed Katen, who introduced and thanked Zed. “It is a historic moment of pride for the community when the prayers from ancient Sanskrit scriptures are being read in this great hall of democracy of this great city of Newman”, Zed stated before starting the invocation.
Rajan Zed is a global Hindu and interfaith leader, who besides taking up the cause of religion worldwide, has also raised huge voice against the apartheid faced by about 15-million Roma (Gypsies) in Europe. Bestowed with World Interfaith Leader Award; Zed is Senior Fellow and Religious Advisor to Foundation for Religious Diplomacy, Spiritual Advisor to National Association of Interchurch & Interfaith Families, etc.
Hinduism, oldest and third largest religion of the world, has about one billion adherents and moksh (liberation) is its ultimate goal. There are about three million Hindus in USA.
Newman, whose tagline is “Honoring the Past, Celebrating the Present, Building for the Future”, is known for its annual Fall Festival. Robert Martina and Michael E. Holland are Mayor Pro Tem and City Manager respectively.

Tamil Rights Activists belonging to their Hindu Roots are facing utter humiliation and persecution in Sri Lanka.
Kilinochchi Disappearances Activist and her 13 Year Old Daughter arrested after Hours Of Interrogation.
Hindu Existence Special Correspondent | Ontario – Canada | 14 March 2014:: Activist groups in Sri Lanka are now confirming that a Tamil widow from Kilinochchi, a Kilinochchi Disappearances Activist named Balendran Jeyakumari and her 13 year old daughter named Vidushika have been arrested by police investigators following a five hour raid on their home at Dharmapuram last evening. Both of them are reportedly being held in Vavuniya.
Reports that Balendran Jeyakumari a prominent campaigner for families of the disappeared in the Kilinochchi District and her daughter were being detained inside her home which is in the Indian Housing scheme broke late afternoon yesterday (13th March). Balendran Jeyakumari and kumari Vidushika hail rom their traditional orthodox Tamil Shaiva faith. And the persecutor Sri Lankan Govt. is oppressing all these Hindu activists in their faith of fake Buddhist faith. The ruling Govt in Sri Lanka is doing all the harmful activities against humanity just violating all the norms of real preaching of Lord Buddha.
Media and Tamil politician Gajen Ponnambalam reported that Jayakumari’s home had been surrounded by police and armed forces personnel at about 4:30 P.M. on Thursday (13). Ponnambalam and other friends who called Jayakumari on her phone reported that the woman had first answered and that later her phone was snatched away by men claiming to be police, who said there was an investigation under way before switching off the mobile. Neighbours reported the sound of screams and crying by Vithushaini at the home. Media personnel rushing to the scene were not permitted to get close to Jayakumari’s residence, with police cordoning off the area near her home. For several hours no reports emerged about their whereabouts, although late Wednesday night, Ponnambalam said there were unconfirmed reports Jayakumari and her daughter had been arrested.
Police meanwhile, told reporters in Colombo that one policeman had been injured in an attack when a team of police personnel was attempting to arrest a suspected Ex-LTTE cadre in Kilinochchi. Police Spokesman Ajith Rohana told the BBC on Thursday that the suspect had been in a house in which there were two women who were now being investigated. More unconfirmed reports are emerging about further police casualties.
Jayakumari and her daughter Vithushaini are familiar faces in disappearances protests and were heavily photographed during the missing peoples’ protest in Jaffna when British Prime Minister David Cameron visited the area during CHOGM in November last year. Jayakumari had four children – two sons were killed in the war and a third went missing after she handed him over to the military in May 2009. Her 13 year old daughter is her last remaining child. Both Jayakumari and her daughter handed over documents of their family members last whereabouts and information to Channel 4′s Jonathan Snow who was mobbed by the demonstrators in Jaffna during Cameron’s visit. Sources said that the two women were being harassed on suspicion of having been informants for the British Broadcaster.
Video of demonstration at Nallur Kovil Jaffna prior to Cameron’s arrival in the North shows Jayakumari and her daughter are in the first row of protesters. Click here to watch the video.
The Tamil National Alliance (TNA) protests in the strongest terms for such unjustified arrest of Rights activists.
The TNA is shocked and appalled at the conduct of the authorities in this regard. The high-handed conduct of the government, even while its human rights record is under scrutiny at the current sessions of the Human Rights Council, is illustrative of the government’s disdainful conduct towards the Human Rights Council. The TNA demands that Jeyakumari and Vidushika be produced before a Magistrate forthwith and released. We remain deeply concerned for the safety and well-being of Jeyakumari and Vidushika, particularly given the context of reported widespread sexual violence against women in the Northern Province. We urge the international community to take all possible measures to ensure the safety and release of Jeyakumari and Vidushika.
In last two decades the Tamils of Sri Lanka saw a deadly genocide in a terrific hell, most of the victims of which are Tamil Hindus.

Forced conversion of Hindu girls on the rise: Pak Hindu Council
MEENA MENON | THE HINDU | ISLAMABAD | JANUARY 7, 2014:: The head of the Pakistan Hindu Council Dr. Ramesh Kumar Vankwani, Member National Assembly has condemned the rise in kidnapping of Hindu girls, forced conversion and marriage.
Talking to the media outside Parliament House on Tuesday he referred to the recent kidnapping of a Hindu woman, Lucky Bhel from Sindh who was reportedly forced to marry a follower of a local religious leader.
“Another Hindu teacher, Sapna Rani, from Peshawar was recovered after 15 days with the active support of media and civil society,” he said.
Dr. Ramesh Kumar said that the founder of Pakistan, Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah had promised minorities their rights and the Constitution of Pakistan also guaranteed their protection. He pledged support for the victims’ families and said he would raise the issue on every available forum including Parliament and take up the grievances of the Hindu community.
Earlier this year, the Sindh Government had set up a three member committee to examine a law to stop forced marriages of Hindu girls.
Activists in Karachi have said there are 20 such cases every month and last year the case of Rinkle Kumari went right upto the Supreme Court which allowed her and two other girls to decide their future. [Courtesy: The Hindu]
Recovered Hindu teacher complains of pressure for conversion
WASEEM AHMAD SHAH | PESHAWAR | JANUARY 7, 2014:: A missing Hindu female schoolteacher told a local judicial magistrate on Monday after recovery from Bahawalpur that her kidnapper had forced her to marry him after changing her faith and kept her unconscious for most of the time during captivity on refusal.
Magistrate Mohammad Fayyaz Khan ordered the local police to conduct medical examination of teacher Sapna Rani and produce its report.
The teacher, who is around 25, was recovered from Khairpur tehsil of Bahawalpur late on Saturday after investigation officer of the case Shaheenullah Khan traced her location with the help of her cellphone and that of her alleged captor, Zahid Nawaz, a resident of Bahawalpur.
The accused managed to flee.
Investigation Officer Shaheenullah Khan produced the girl before the judicial magistrate to record statement under Section 164 of the Code of Criminal Procedure.
Ms Sapna had gone missing on Dec 21 while returning home from school in the jurisdiction of Paharipura police station. Police had registered a complaint lodged by Suresh Kumar, stated to be the teacher’s cousin.
Ms Sapna is a teacher at a private school, Peshawar Science Academy, situated on the GT Road near Ayub Flour Mills.
The kidnapping had created unrest among the local Hindu community and its leaders had appealed to the government to take notice of the incident and recover the teacher.
The investigation officer said the teacher had recorded almost similar statements with him and the magistrate.
Ms Sapna told the court that when she was returning home on the day of kidnapping, a car stopped near her and the accused person put a cloth dosed with intoxicant on her face causing her to fall unconscious.
She said she gained consciousness after a day and saw a man later identified as Zahid Nawaz present in the room.
The teacher said whenever she gained consciousness, the kidnapper used to put forward the same demand of marrying him after conversion to Islam.
She said on her refusal, the man often put intoxicant-dosed cloth to her nose.
The woman said as she remained unconscious most of the time, she was not sure whether she was sexually assaulted by the suspect or not.
The court ordered to conduct her medical examination. [Read full report here. Courtesy: The Dawn]

Restore Hindu Nation with constitutional Monarchy in Nepal!
By Dirgha Raj Prasai.
In the annals of world civilization, Hindu philosophy is considered liberal, simple and tolerant. Nepal as a Hindu state did not just signify her Hindu religious leanings. It was also a source of Nepali nationalism and an inescapable fact of Nepal. Hence, declaration of Nepal as a secular state has ignored the ground realities.
Among all religions, Hindu religion is considered the most liberal. According to renowned philosopher Voltaire, Hinduism is the best gift of the East to the West. Similarly, George Bernard Shaw, Irish littérateur, said, “Hindu religion is the most important and the most liberal religion in the world”. According to the Encyclopedia of Religions and Ethics, signs of Hindu religion are found in Islamic countries like Iran. A stone scripture dating back to 486 BC in Iran contains the words Hindu and Hindus. Even an ancient Parsi scripture, Shatir, repeats the famous Ved Vyas saying “I am a true Hindu born, in a Hindu country”. Another Hindu philosopher Manu considers the area between Bindhya in south India and the Himalayas in the north as Aryabrata, the land of Aryans.
Even outside travelers to the region like Megasthaniz and Fai Han have written in their memoirs that Hindus are tall, healthy, simple, intelligent and truthful. That Hindus do not need to bring witnesses to financial deals and they do not lock their houses as incidents of theft are simply not heard of. The rise of Buddhism does not make much of a difference because Buddhism and Hinduism are complementary to each other and Kiratis also worship the same gods, such as Shiva and Bhagawati, as do the Hindus.
Instead of declaring Nepal a completely secular state, it would have made more sense, in keeping with the ground realities, if it had been declared as the soil of Hindu rooted faiths and the basic lands of Hindu and Buddhist people. There are over 800 million Hindus in India and Indian Hindus respect Nepal as a Hindu country. This should be taken as a matter of pride. For security reasons too, Nepal, a small country with open border to the south, has a big advantage as a Hindu country. It also needs to be borne in mind that no one has the right to trample on the conviction of more than two-thirds of the people.
The declaration of Nepal as a Hindu Kingdom does not signify just its religion rather it is taken as the source of Nepalese nationalism and an inseparable part of Nepal. If Nepal is republican and secular country, China comes with communism in Nepal for its security reasons and then gradually spreading Maoist and Communist terrorism in different parts of that country making Chinese centers in Nepal. If monarchy is restored in Nepal, all the Communist activities can be controlled. So, the parliamentary party leaders will make a grave mistake this time after the present election in Nepal in 2013, if not declaring Nepal as a Hindu State instead of fake secular state as structured by the Ultra Communists some years back .
Even if one talks about secularism, the census 2001 AD can be taken as referendum. That time those who call them intellectuals, leaders of ethnic communities and communists and those who call themselves Christians had made campaign not to write anything in the column for religion or not to write Hindu as their religion. But the Hindus never confronted them or made it an issue. Despite the campaign against Hinduism, the number of Hindus in Nepal was found to be 82 per cent. If one keeps the Buddhists out the number of Hindus before the 2001 census was 83 per cent. Half of the diminished numbers were increased in Buddhism and Kiratis and there was half percentage point increment in Christians. The rise in Buddhism and Kiratis do not make much of a difference because Buddhism and Hinduism are complementary to each other and Kiratis also worship the same gods such as Shiva and Bhagawati like the Hindus.
Therefore, the holy land of Nepal can be declared as the lands of Hindu Rooted religions. But it is a matter of serious concern for whose interest Nepal was declared a secular state. No one has right to trample believe and conviction of more than two-thirds majority of the people. Even if there is a referendum, more than 85 percent Nepalese will vote for a Hindu country. More than that Hindus have the freedom to pursue their own way of observing the religion. Therefore, if Nepal is to be declared a secular country, all countries, which call themselves as Christian or Muslim countries should also be declared secular countries. If they want Nepal to become a secular country, they should also be willing to shun their ‘Cross’ of the Christians, ‘sign of David’ of the Jews and ‘Kawa’ of Muslims. Actually, Kaaba (Kawa) shrine is a pre-Islamic Shiva temple where the Hindu practice of perambulation is still meticulously observed and strictly followed. New research tells that Jesus came to India to learn Yoga. However, these need to be pondered that even if Nepal is to be a Hindu Kingdom again, its nature will remain far better than any secular country as Hindus have never done anything that would harass or trouble other religions.
Nepal is a small country and on the south there is a big country with open border. There are about 800 million Hindus and Indian Hindus respect Nepal as a Hindu kingdom. This should be taken as a matter of pride for us. For security reasons also, Nepal has a big advantage by being a Hindu country. If the Maoists are for Nepal’s national sovereignty and territorial integrity, all Nepalese request them to change their idea about secularism. Even if one is a Christian or a Muslim, they should support to keep Nepal a Hindu country. But the seven political parties have made a great mistake by announcing Nepal as a secular state.
It is shameful to write that in Nepal there are some existing international organization (INGO) who are talking to develop Nepal but they were and has been involving in spreading the Christian religion with money and giving the fallacious assurance. The Nepalese religious people always regard the other religions. Nepal and the monarch never show the religious intolerance. From the very beginning, there are two Mosques in front of the Royal palace, near Clock Tower, have never faced intolerance. But, the so-called big party leaders and some civil society’ and INGO conveners who are the puppets Christian Mission are active to destroy the indigenous culture and identities. We should remember the quotation of Voltaire: “Christianity is the most ridiculous, the most absurd and bloody religion that has ever infected the world.”
Despite knowing this fact it is intriguing on whose interest the so-called big parties including Maoist declared Nepal a secular state by the hints of RAW. They had directly hurt the feeling of the majority of the Hindus in the country and more than 1 billion Hindus all over the world. Political leaders must rethink its decision. What they should have done is to remove the anomalies such as untouchables and other caste-based and social discrimination. This would have been the real tribute and service to the country and to the religion. Apart from some social anomalies there is nothing in Hindu religion that should be opposed. By declaring republic and Nepal a secular country; they are only serving the interest of some narrow groups who possess antagonistic approach against the majority Nepali people. Otherwise, if one thinks of the liberalism and tolerance, Hinduism comes first and foremost of all other religions in Nepal. So, Nepal must be restored with a Hindu Rashtra (Nation-State) again.

Attack on Hindu Temples in Sri Lanka may invite worldwide Counter reaction by Hindus: Dr Pravinbhai Togadiya, Int. President, VHP.
Upananda Brahmachari | New Delhi | 9 Nov 2013:: As Vishwa Hindu Parishad (World Hindu Council) has received complaints from Dr. N. Kumar Guruparan,Western Provincial Councillor and the Deputy Leader of Democratic Peoples’ Front and Spokesman for the Hindu Front of Sri Lanka against demolition of Goddess Bhadrakaali Amman Temple at the historically inhabited Tamil area of Dambulla in Sri Lanka by Government forces in night of 28th Oct. last, Dr Pravinbhai Togadiya, International President of VHP condemned such attack upon Hindu Temples and Tamil Hindu culture through a strong press statement issued today.
Earlier Dr Guruparan’s reported the following points inviting particular attention:
1. Hon’ble Sri Lankan Parliamentarian R. Yogarajan and Dr. N. Kumar Guruparan both appealed to His Excellency Mahinda Rajapakse, President of Sri Lanka, to ensure the safety of the Bhadrakaali Amman Temple at Dambulla;
2. When Government forces in civilian dress along with the monks went for demolition, the Temple Trustee Smt. Lechhumi Ammah requested them to give time till Wednesday for performance of prescribed religious rites for the closure of the temple. But they did not pay heed to this reasonable request and went ahead with their demolition drive immediately on 28th October, 2013 night. [https://www.colombotelegraph.com/index.php/30-year-old-dambulla-badhrakaali-amman-kovil-completely-demolished-last-night/]
The Hindu Existence Forum also highlighted the demolition of age old Bhadrakaali Kovil (Temple) through a worldwide publicity under its reporting and authenticated video footage under the caption : 30 Year Old Dambulla Badhrakaali Amman Kovil (Hindu Temple) Completely Demolished by Buddhist Fanatics in Sri Lanka.
This press statement has been released by Sri Prashant Hartaltak, Central Secretary, VHP has an immense importance before the commencement of CHOGM in Sri Lanka on 15-17 Nov 2013.
The press statement deeply expressed its concern over the attack upon Tamil Hindu People by a dint of destroying Hindu Temple Culture of Sri Lanka.
“During the long civil war hundreds of Hindu temples have been demolished in Sri Lanka. Now the civil war is over. Even in this peace time we are hearing of destruction of Hindu temple which is very disturbing and provoking.” – the statement narrates on.
In a strong protest against the premeditated pulling down of a living Hindu Temple in Sri Lanka, the Working President of VHP Dr Pravinbhai Togadiya said, “Vishva Hindu Parishad is deeply distressed to hear news reports that Mother Goddess Bhadrakaali Amman Temple at the historically inhabited Tamil area of Dambulla in Sri Lanka has been completely demolished and uprooted by design. VHP strongly demands from the Sri Lankan Government authorities that immediate steps be taken to reconstruct and restore the sanctity of the temple.”
Dr Togadiya said, “As both Hindus and Buddhists are brothers in Dharma, we do not expect such offense and transgression from our Buddhist brethren committed on a Hindu place of worship. The message has gone all over the world that Hindu Temple has been demolished by government forces along with Buddhist monks in Sri Lanka. We take serious note of this wrongdoing and request the Government of Sri Lanka to refrain from such sacrilege against Hindu places of worship and ensure that such acts are not repeated in future anywhere in the Island Nation, otherwise the Sri Lankan Government will be responsible if such acts invite counteractions by the Hindus.”
In his strong note Dr Togadiya pointed out the offensive steps so far taken against the Tamil Hindu Culture and the Hindu people in Sri Lanka by an arrogant Sri Lankan Government and some irresponsible and inhumane Buddhist monk may create counter attacks on the tree of the offenders if not ceased to produce its poisonous fruits further.
As a matter of fact, thousands of Lankan Buddhist people come to Hindu Majority Bharat to visit the holy Buddhist shrines amidst the warm reception of their Hindu counterparts. But, these same Buddhist people do not show any concern to protect the old and heritage Hindu temples in Sri Lanka anyway.
The probable ”counteractions by the Hindus’ as a consecutive chain of agitation against Sinhala tourist or the Buddhist people in general may vitiate the Hindu-Buddhsit traditional bondage in this sub-continent. This may be a headache for the Indian delegates reaching CHOGM 2013 in Colombo. Tamil people and political parties have already condemned and protested the participation of Indian Prime Minister, Dr Manmohan Singh, in the CHOGM. Some of them pointed out that Dr Singh should follow the Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper who has already boycotted CHOGM over the issue of SL Govt’s negation on the probe on killing of 40,000 Tamil civilians by the Sinhala Army in the LTTE wartime. The estimates of Tamil Hindu Genocides in Sri Lanka by various agencies touch a unbelievable lot of 1,40,000 so far.
Objections raised against removal of deity from Dambulla Bhadrakaali Kovil.

Resolution to increase network of international Hindu Organisations in Bali Hindu Summit (13-17 June, 2013).
Bali World Hindu Summit 2013 at Indonesia | Denpasar (Bali, Indonesia) | HJS News Net | June 18, 2013:: Decision to increase network of international Hindu organisations through the World Hindu Summit was taken in the second world Hindu Summit held here. Dr. Medbhakta, the President of Executive Committee of World Hindu Summit (WHS), informed that the programs devised by WHS will be implemented through World Hindu Centres which will undertake study of Hindu Dharma. They said Centre will also undertake programs for development in different fields related to children, women empowerment, education, economy etc., stated Dr. Medbhakta.
There is a need to create awareness amongst Hindus. The scholarly Hindus will be assigned the task of studying ‘Vedas’ and their propagation, said Shri. Med Sadruna, the President of Organising Committee of WHS. He said that the outcome of holding WHS was more than expected. Representatives from 20 countries all over the world took part in this Summit; besides representatives of 33 regions of Indonesia.
H. H. Dr. Athavale’s message for the ‘World Hindu Summit’ being held at Bali Island in Indonesia.
Denpasar (Bali, Indonesia) | HJS News Net:: “I am delighted to know that the ‘World Hindu Summit’ is being held at Bali Island, which has been nurturing Hindu heritage in Indonesia for many years now. In fact, it is expected that such Summits be held in Bharat, which is an eminent self-originated Hindu Nation. It is really praiseworthy that though not in Bharat, the Summit is being held at Bali Island which is a ‘Hindu land’ and Hindu representatives from all over the world are participating. Whatever be extent of gratitude the entire Hindu society expresses over the event, it will not be enough.
The objective of the ‘World Hindu Summit’ to spread Spirituality all over the world and to put into practice associated actions is important. There is a great need to propagate Hindu Dharma, science underlying Hindu Dharma, Hindu philosophy and Hindu culture all over the world for the welfare of mankind. I pray at the Holy feet of Shrikrushna that may the ‘World Hindu Summit’ be able to fulfil this need !”
- H. H. Dr. Jayant Athavale, Source of Inspiration, Hindu Janajagruti Samiti.
Establishment of Hindu Rashtra paves way for ‘Vishwa Bandhutva’ : Pujya (Dr.) Charudatta Pingale.
Denpasar (Bali, Indonesia) | HJS News Net | June 17, 2013:: The establishment of Hindu Rashtra (Dharma Rajya) is not through revolution, but by ‘Evolution’. There is destruction in revolution, but in ‘Evolution’ there is no destruction, only upliftment. Citizens in Dharma Rajya are provided with Dharmashiksha (Education of Dharma), their vices, defects are removed and their Sattvikata is increased by imbibing divine qualities. This process leads to World Oneness (Vishwa Bandhutva). Only Saints and seekers, working for betterment of Nation and Dharma, can establish Hindu Rashtra on the basis of their Ideal behavior, divine qualities, culture and experience. These views were expressed by Pujya (Dr.) Charudatta Pingale, National Guide of HJS while addressing the ‘World Hindu Summit’. Pujya (Dr.) Pingale spoke on the topic of ‘Importance of Hindu Dharma, the need for Hindus to abide by Dharma and perform spiritual practice’.

‘Don’t have slightest doubt or think of alternative for establishment of Hindu Rashtra’ ~ Upananda Brahmachari.
Ram nathi, Ponda, Goa | DSP | 06 June 2013:: Don’t have slightest doubt or think of alternative for establishment of Hindu Rashtra ! – Shri. Upananda Brahmachari, Editor, Hindu Existence, Kolkata.
Everyone should have the confidence that Hindu Rashtra is going to be established. Till such confidence is not generated, we will not be able to ceaselessly tread on the path towards Hindu Rashtra. Do not have even slightest doubt or think of alternative for the goal of establishment of Hindu Rashtra; since such doubt is the big obstacle on the path of moving towards our goal. The above views were expressed by Shri. Upananda Brahmachari, the Editor of website ‘Hindu Existence’ from Kolkata; while speaking on the topic of ‘Obstacles in establishment of Hindu Rashtra’.
Shri. Brahmachari said…
1. Lokmanya Tilak, Dr, Hedgewar presented the concept of Hindu Rashtra; but Hindu Rashtra was never established although so many pro-Hindu organizations are active in this country; because none of the organizations has 100 % ‘Hinduttva’.
2. If the powerful pro-Hindu organizations nurture the dream of establishment of Hindu Rashtra, it will be established in ten days; therefore, let us pray to Bhagavan Shrikrushna that let good sense prevail over the powerful pro-Hindu organizations and they participate in our mission.
3. The base of ‘Hindutva’ of RSS has a close setting to politics and our base is righteousness.
4. Hindus should abide by Dharma and bring changes in self; so also if changes are brought about even in Society, State and Nation, it will create an atmosphere conducive for establishment of Hindu Rashtra.
5. Although Hindus are literate in practical sense of the term; they are illiterate from the viewpoint of having knowledge of Dharma; therefore, it is necessary to undertake drives for making Hindus literate in real sense of the term.
6. We need ‘Brahma-Tej’ along with ‘Kshatra-Tej’ for establishment of Dharma and for which, there is no alternative to ‘Dharma-shikshan’. And is clearly said by Lord Shri Krishna in Srimad Bhagabad Gita, as the establishment of Dharma is based on only two divine duties. a. Paritranay Sadhunamm – Protection of Dharma and Dharmiks (follower/practitioner of Dharma), i.e. part of propagation of Brahma-tej and b. Vinashay ca duskritanam. Finish and uproot the enemies of Dharma, i.e. Khastra-tej.
7. Secularism is the evilest constraints for the establishment of Hindu Rashtra as the inclusion of “Secular’ word in Indian Constitution facilitates the secular bargaining by the Muslims and Christians through the namesake Hindu and obviously Secular zealots. We have to alienate the Secular elements (religious and political leaders, media, NGOs etc.) from the mainstream Hindu masses.
8. Hindus must not indulge in such a permissiveness, so that the ideas to equate Muslims and Christian like anti Hindu element with the heights of Sanatan Hindu Dharma. Hindus must not allow Mosques, Churches, Slaughter Houses, Beef Shops, Muslim Hotels, anti -Hindu religious activities in Hindu areas of Sanatana Land.
9. Hindus must understand what are superficial problems and what are the real crisis and constraints before the establishment of Hindu Rashtra. When the foreign, political and financial crisis and constraints are superficial, the spiritual and cultural perspective are the most important issues for establishment of the Hindu Rashtra.
10. We can establish the Hindu Rashtra in Bharat in 10 minutes, if the leaders of big and other Hindu organisations come together to sit for ten minutes to take a strong resolution for a Hindus Rashtra in Bharat. Actually the disunity in the leaders and organisations of Hindus are the main difficulties to establish a Hindu Rashtra. Now, the Hindu activists must pressurize the Hindu leaders to came to the practical field for making a Hindu Rashtra in Bharat.

H.H. Dr. Athavale on ‘Outcome of the Hindu Adhiveshan’.
June 16, 2012 |Ramnathi, Goa.
H.H. Dr. Jayant Athavale, Sanatan Sanstha
Development of an emotion of unity among the Hindu organisations is the biggest outcome of the Convention !
The ultimate goal of all the Hindu organisations is establishment of the Hindu Nation. The day-to-day activities of all the Hindu organisations are directed towards the cause of Nation and Dharma. Effectively it means that all the Hindu organisations had the same goal and their actions too were similar; yet, there was no unity among them. Consequently no one was able to see or experience the manifestation of the strength of Hindu unity. Post ‘All India Hindu Convention’ unity of the Hindu organisations will be felt. Feeling of loneliness of Hindu organisations will be wiped out and with a confidence that ‘we all are Pandavs’, they will be active for the protection of Dharma and ultimately the goal of establishing the Hindu Nation will be achieved.
- H.H. Dr. Jayant Athavale, Sanatan Sanstha
All those who are active for the cause of Nation and Dharma, always remember that door of Sanatan Sanstha is wide open for you ! – H.H. Dr. Athavale
1. ‘If you feel the need of individual guidance in sadhana (spiritual practice), contact Sanatan’s seekers in your District or State any time. They will guide you affectionately.
2. If you want to discuss an issue pertaining to Nation and Dharma or if you face any difficulty, you can contact seekers of Sanatan any time.’
Hindu Rashtra is the only remedy on Bangladeshi Infiltrators ! – Upananda Brahmachari.
June 14, 2012 | Ramnathi, Goa.
Upananda Brahmachari, Editor – Hindu Existence
Ramnathi, Ponda (Goa) : Presently the situation is so bad that even the Border Security Force cannot control the infiltrations of Bangladeshi Muslims. The number of Bangladeshi infiltrators is on the rise in Assam and surrounding states with the backing of local political parties. Some Hindu organisations was expected take effective measures against this infiltration as a Hindu organisation; but it failed. Now Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) has begun the mission of establishing Hindu Nation by uniting all minor Hindu organisations throughout the Nation. If a strong Hindu unity develops through this Convention, then infiltration of Bangladeshi Muslims will get reduced. Shri. Upananda Brahmachari from Bengal stated this while speaking on the subject ‘Infiltration of Bangladeshi Muslims and anti-National activities of Maoists’.
He further added,
- Presently the Bangladeshi Muslims form 2% of Bharatiya population. They have created many ‘Mini Pakistan’ all over Bharat.
- Four thousand of Rohingya Muslims from Manaymar are currently staying in Delhi.
- According to the Intelligence reports, 39% of the infiltrators stay in Bengal, 25% in Assam and North Eastern regions, 22% in Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh and Delhi while rest of them are scattered in all other states.
- Now these Bangladeshi people are collectively demanding Bharatiya citizenship in Kolkata.
- A Muslim MP in Rajyasabha demanded rehabilitation of such infiltrators – migrants as Muslims think Bharat a Dharmashala.
- The menace of Bangladeshi infiltration is assuming a dreadful form. A conspiracy to divide Bharat lies underneath it.
- Pakistan intelligence agency ISI and Bangladesh intelligence DGFI Masterminds are behind increasing influx from Bangladesh and outside.
- Maoists, Islamists and Christian Conversion and Warrior Groups have certain nexus to destroy Bharat drastically.
- Swami Laxmanananda Saraswati was murdered by Maoist and Christian joint action as revealed.
- Mosques and Madarshas are being utilized as the help centres for the Muslim infiltrators.
|Hindu culture is safe because of sadhana(Spiritual practice) of Rishis (Sages) in Himalayas !
Despite a number of assaults by foreign forces so far on Bharat, Hindu culture is still existent. Now we have come together for establishment of the Hindu Nation so that such assaults can be stopped. Just as we get blessings of Saints and Sages for this mission, Hindu Dharma and culture is also being saved due to Chaitanya (Divine Consciousness) emitted by many Saints who are performing penance in the caves of Himalaya Mountain. We must express gratitude unto them for this. ~ Upananda Brahmachari.

Pseudo Secular, Islamic Agent, Political puppet – You can say anything for Times of India. Times of India is nothing but an anti Hindu force against Hindu Rashtra Summit.
~ Upananda Brahmachari.
Ramnathi, Ponda | 12 June, 2012 :: When the Five days Hindu Rashtra Summit at Ramnathi, Goa convened by Hindu Janjagruti Samiti is on full swing, the Times of India started barking like a mad dog seeing the coming the Hindu Rashtra like a Gajraj ( Elephant).
In it’s Goa Edition, (Times City, 12 June, 2012) they started to try a division in Hindu Society through various concocted reports and analysis. Times attacked Sri Narayan Prem Sai and Promod Mutalik in a row for their truthfulness in Hindutva line.
Four reports so far published on 12-06-2012 has no spirit of actualities as all these were targeted the Hindu Rashtra Summit and its dignitaries joined it for its success at any cost.
The reports are:
VHP has separated Hindus from their brothers: Sant Narayan Prem Sai.
Opposition builds up against Shri Ram Sena.
Sri Ram Sena to open branches in Goa.
Manohar Parrikar warns Ram Sena.
As we heard directly Sri Narayan Prem Sai and Promod Mutalik, we can easily understand the maligning nature of the Times Group.
Narayan Sai never told any thing against VHP, but lamented only for its failure to convene such summit to declared Bharat a Hindu Rashtra. But, the Times never quoted his experience in Dubai airport where the publication of Yog Vedanta Samity was thrown as garbage being un-Islamic literature. Even the Group of Times is simply mute to the reaction of Prem Sai for Temple Fund encroachments by Central and State Govts.
The reaction of Times for Promod Mutalik is nothing but a reaction as the bite boys and girls (reporters) are anxious that they may not perform their debauchery in the pubs in week-ends. As such they fit both the CM and opposition against Promod Mutalik like idiots. But both Prem Sai and Mutalik have thousand of Fans in Goa to invite them in this State for Dhrama Prachar (preaching of Dharma) time and again.
Acharya Yogesh Shastri, Arya Pratinidhi Sabha – Bengal.
In an over all assessment the Third day session of Hindu Rashtra Summit is perceived as meaningful and proactive in all senses.
Speeches of Sri Narayan Sai (Yog Vedanta Ashram of Asaram Bapu), Promod Muthalik (Sri Rama Sene), Dr. Nil Madhav Das (Tarun Hindu Dal), Arjun Sampath (Hindu Makkal Kattchi), Tapan Ghosh (Hindu Samhati), Acharya Yogesh Shastri (Arya Samaj, Bengal), Chittaranjan Sural (HJS) and Vaibhav Aphale (HJS) were the main attraction for the Day – 3.
Discussions and presentation were made for Rewriting of History, Conversion issues, Love Jihad, Hindu reactions in Communal Riots in different sessions to adopt resolution for theses matters.
Day-3 Exhibition over the plight of Bangladesh Minority Hindus with the arrangements of FACT attracted the notice of the delegates and dignitaries.

Hindu Rashtra Summit ~ ‘All India Hindu Adhiveshan’ inaugurated : Unprecedented history to be created.
Delegates are resolving the points on Hindu Rashtra.
Hindus believe both in Krama (Selfless Work) and Chaitanya (Supreme Conciousness) as per nature and Sanatana Philosophy. But these two spirits are rare to see in a line. But through a process of long Sadhna (dedicated offering of Self for the selfless service), Hindu Janjagruti Samiti has successfully made its history to put forth people’s aspiration of a HINDU STATE in BHARAT in its Hindu Rashtra Summit in Goa.
With the presence of Saints, Scholars, activists and devotees and blessings of Sri Sri Jagatguru Shankarcharya of Kanchi Kamkoti Peetham and Pujya Dr Jayanta Athavale, the Historic Summit started on 10th June 2012 in Ramnath Temple Complex at Ponda, Goa.
The Summit started with Chanting of Ved Mantra and Dwip Prajjalan ( Lighting the brass lamp) and spontaneous war cry for a Hindu Rashtra. 196 delegates and dignitaries have reached to the Summit so far till the Day- 2 of the programme. Sri Narayan Sai Ji ( Son of Pujya Asaram Bapu) attended the Summit and blessings for the success of the Summit.
Important matters like Hindu Rashtra – The Policy and Making, Kashmir – Problem of Hindus and Solution, Communal Riots - Remedial steps to protect Hindu Society, Temple Property – Govt. encroachment and Hindu protest, Prevention of Communal and Targeted Violence Bill -2011, In the Defence of Hindu Society – Methodology in Spiritualism and Activism, Self Defence Training for the individual for the protection of State are discussed in the interactive sessions and also exhorted by the experts in the particular discipline.
Sri Narayan Sai is discussing with Upananda Brahmachari, Editor Hindu Existence.
Exhibitions of the plight of Kashmir and Bangladeshi Hindus as designed by FACT (Forum Against Continuing Terrorism) and propagated by HJS attracted the delegates significantly.
The stalls for Sanatan Books and The Sanatan Prabhat also remain the main attractions for the delegates of this Hindu Rashtra Summit.
The presentation of Sushri Vaidehi Sachin of NBC Newsmakers for a strong Hindu Media was an excellent experience for all.
Viewers of Hindu existence are requested to get the details of this Great Summit for Hindu Rashtra through the links hereunder:

|USA 2nd leading destination for Hindu migrants
[Rajan Zed | USA | 12-03-12] United States of America (USA) is the world’s second-leading destination for Hindu migrants, after India; according to a new study by The Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life.
The report, titled “The Religious Affiliation of International Migrants”, points out that Hindu migrants come mostly from India and Bangladesh and a much smaller numbers have come from the Pacific region known as Oceania (particularly Fiji) and the Caribbean (particularly Trinidad and Tobago and Guyana). USA has an estimated 1.3 million first-generation (foreign-born) Hindu immigrants, most of whom have arrived in recent decades.
Last year Channel 4 broadcast Sri Lanka’s Killing Fields, a critically-acclaimed and RTS Award winning forensic investigation into the events of the last few weeks of the decades-long war between the government of Sri Lanka and the rebel forces of the Tamil Tigers (LTTE), presented by Jon Snow. It featured devastating video evidence of war crimes and crimes against humanity captured on mobile phones by both victims and perpetrators – some of the most horrific footage Channel 4 has ever broadcast.
This footage featured atrocities committed on both sides but its most disturbing finding was of a series of war crimes perpetrated by victorious Sri Lankan government forces including evidence of sexual assaults on female fighters, the execution of bound prisoners and the shelling of civilians in what were supposed to be safe ‘No Fire Zones’.

In the midst of the raging controversy over alleged financial support by foreign-funded NGOs to the anti-nuclear protests in Kudankulam, a recent Home Ministry report shows that such voluntary organisations are gaining massive funding from abroad for their activities in tribal-dominated States and North East.

|Women in politics: India ranks 105th far behind Nepal, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Myanmar.PTI || New Delhi, March 08, 2012:
As the country celebrates Women’s Day on Thursday, data on parliaments across the world reveal that India, the largest democracy, lags much behind other countries including its neighbours such as Pakistan, Bangladesh and Nepal when it comes to women’s participation in politics.
With only 11% of representation of women in Lok Sabha and 10.7% in Rajya Sabha, India ranks 105th in the world, according to the latest comparative data released by the IPU.
While India shares the 105th position with West African country Cote d’Ivoire, it is ranked 85 places below Nepal and 53 places behind Pakistan. Even China at 60th spot and Bangladesh at 65 are well above India, according to the IPU data based on December 31, 2011.
In an alarming trend, the Naxals have now entered into farming of poppy in an organised manner to substantially fund their subversive activities.
Poppy produce can subsequently be used for deriving contraband, the proceeds from which will provide a dangerous financial boost to the rebels.
Worryingly, the strategy is also bringing the red rebels in closer liaison with Northeastern insurgents.
Intelligence inputs suggest Naxals have forayed into the upper reaches of Assam and have entered into tactical alliance with the insurgent groups from the North-East. The Naxals can exchange the revenues from poppy produce to procure firearms from the ultras of the North-East.
The Naxals have already been using weapons and communication sets of Chinese make.

When it comes to commemorating or even celebrating anniversaries, Indians are inclined to be notoriously lax. The 50th anniversary of Indian independence in 1997 was, for example, perfunctorily observed and mainly as a sarkari celebration.
Yet, and not surprisingly, the 10th anniversary of the Gujarat riots has become a media event or, to be more precise, an English-language media occasion.
