The other Diwali message 2014.

Posted by hinduexistence on October 23, 2014

Happy Diwali. Enjoy with responsibility. 

diwaliHENB | New Delhi | 22 Oct 2014:: Since Pakistan and Bangladesh (East Pakistan) are now two Islamic State and Hindus are minority there (in Pakistan 1.86% and in BD about 9%) Deepavali (Diwali) is not a public holiday anymore. There is no Hindu Holiday in Pakistan Govt Public holiday list (not a single one when Christians have two) and BD holiday list shows three only. Deepavali is an optional holiday there. Hindus can enjoy only one optional holiday in Pakistan and three from BD holiday list. Think Muslims can do paramount restrictions to non-Muslims in Muslim countries and they demand optimum facilities where they are minority under minority status. When would we be able to understand the Islamic mentality and will say NO TO ISLAM, which restricts our rituals.

The grandeur of Deepavali (Diwali) in India is also related to the head-count. where Hindus are in majority they celebrate Diwali in a manner they want. But in Muslim majority areas Hindus cannot. Even then we are still in a dilemma whether we should join in a Hindu organisation or not or to mark my family with an orthodox Hindu lineage. If you have some problem to be levelled as communal or so, you will be a simple victim of extinction. If you like Diwali and other Hindu festivity, think then your position in a Pakistan or Bangladesh like situation. Do that by what your next generation also can celebrates all the festivals safely as they like. Without Hindu majority and strong might, Hindus will be discarded to observe their festivals in any Islamic situation. Please think about it.

See the Govt holiday lists in Pakistan and Bangladesh displayed below with this message. You will understand what is what!  

Let the light of Deepavali wipe out our secular insanity leading us to a dangerous homicide. Be Hindu, Think Hindu, Then say Happy Deepawali.

Happy Diwali. Enjoy with responsibility. 

~ Upananda Brahmachari.

Anti Hindu Muslim cleric held by Gujarat Police for abusing Navratri and Garba festival and slapped severely by a VHP activist in court complex subsequently.

Posted by hinduexistence on September 24, 2014

News Flash: A VHP Activist slapped Imam Mehdi Hasan in Court Campus as he made objectionable remarks on ‘Navratri’. 

HE Media Bureau | Anand (Gujarat) | Sep 24, 2014:: A man here on Wednesday slapped a Muslim cleric while he was being taken to a court after his arrest for allegedly hurting religious sentiments of a community by making objectionable comments about Navratri, police said.

“A man identified as Rakesh today slapped and pushed Imam Mehadi Hasan just outside the court when police were taking the imam to produce him before the judicial magistrate at Thasra in Kheda district,” a police officer said.

Though the controversial anti Hindu Imam Hasan did not sustain any heavy injury in the incident, as police said, but it was a big hit by Rakesh and the Imam thrashed into the ground by saying ‘Ya Allah!’.

Rakesh Patel is believed to be a  VHP hardliner.  Read more here in TOI.

Anti Hindu Muslim cleric held by Gujarat Police for his controversial anti-garba remark demeaning Navratri and Hindu festivals. 

Anti Hindu Imam Arrested.D Desai & N Dave | Ahmadabad | September 24, 2014:: After severe demands for his arrest by the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) and the Bajrang Dal, the Gujarat Police on Tuesday picked up Imam Mehdi Hasan for his controversial statement on the Navratri festival and whisked him away to some undisclosed place for interrogation.

The Imam of  Thasra in Anand district in central Gujarat had called Navratri, the nine nights of Garba, as the “festival of demons”. He had also demanded a ban alleging that “commercialization of Garba” had completely taken out the religious fervour from it.

Youngsters participating in the festival danced to Bollywood tunes and many went to the events in an inebriated state, the Imam had claimed. He had refused to apologize for his comment stating that he would better prefer to get arrested.

The Imam had made this statement after the VHP and the Bajrang Dal demanded that the Muslims be banned from entering garba venues since it was a Hindu festival and they had nothing to do with it.

At first a rightwing group that identified itself as Hindu Asmita Heet Rakshak Samiti (HAHRS) had issued a diktat in Godhra that Muslim youths should not be allowed to enter garba venues in the town to counter ‘love Jihad’.

Some Hindu organisations owing allegiance to the Vishwa Hindu Parishad and its allies also raised the demand for ban on the entry of Muslim youths in the garba venues in the state this year.

Imam Hasan, a resident of Rustampura in Thasra taluka, had first shot into limelight when he tried to put a skull cap on Narandra Modi’s head during the latter’s Sadbhavna fast in 2011. Modi, who had refused to wear a skull cap offered to him at the public meeting, had stated that he didn’t believe in the “politics of appeasement.”

Two police complaints had been lodged against Hasan at Nadiad (West) and Thasra police stations.

An advocate had also filed a case against the Imam at a Gujarat court after the latter made the controversial remarks. Hasan had gone underground after the right-wing activists demanded his arrest for the statements.

Incidentally, it is the first time that garba festivities have attained a communal dimension. Earlier, the festival always passed off peacefully with secular fervour and never had any religious or social tension in the context of Muslim youths.

Earlier VHP warned all concerned in this manner, ” If government remains inactive for stopping Muslims in vibrant Navratri, we’ll take necessary actions”.

VHP & Bajrangdal have woke up now from slumber which have been in hibernation during Narendra Modi’s CM tenure.

VHP had requested all Navratri (Garba) organizers to prevent Muslims entering the venues else VHP would take necessary actions, along with this

VHP has also demanded to revoke ban on time limit of 12 midnight during Navratri.

Accordingly, some Garba organizers maintained the restriction as demanded by VHP.“We won’t allow any Muslim youth to our garba to avoid `love Jihad’,” said P B Baria, organizer of Aadhya Shakti Garba Mahotsav, which draws a crowd of 35,000. “If they come with their families, they are disciplined. So, we will allow Muslim families inside the venue,” Shri  Baria said.

“We don’t want any kind of disturbance and hence we have agreed that we will not collect donation from Muslims nor issue passes,” said K T Parikh, organizer of Maa Shakti Garba Group. “We, however have no means to check whether any Muslim or a Hindu is entering the garba venue.”

As an reaction the fundamental Imam Mahendi Hasan said, “Navratri is the festival of demons where drunkards & rapists participate to come & dance wearing different outfits”. This Imam raised a controversy willfully when tried to make then Guharat CM Narendra Modi stupefied by putting a skull cap on Modi during Sadhbhavna mission camp.

Entry of Muslim youths barred at garba dance venues in Godhra, Gujarat. 

Posted by hinduexistence on September 17, 2014

Muslim youths barred at garba dance venues in Godhra. That policy should be maintained in all other Hindu festivals also everywhere.

GarbaHE News Bureau | Vadodara | 16 Sept 2019:: It may be a hard task to prevent motivated participation of the Muslims in the Hindu festival to humiliate its rituals or to grab Hindu girls for Love Jihad or to put any Jijadi impact otherwise. But Hindus of Godhra issued notice for a ban of Muslims in the Garba Dance Festival Godhra in the soil of controversy, Gujarat. Barely 10 days before the nine-day dance festival kicks off in Gujarat, a rightwing group that identifies itself as Hindu Asmita Heet Rakshak Samiti (HAHRS) has issued a diktat in Godhra that Muslim youths should not be allowed to enter garba venues in the town to counter ‘love Jihad’.

The samiti claims that it issued the diktat as Muslim youths enter garba venues to lure Hindu girls.

On Saturday , VHP leader Dr Pravin Togadia had called for the same in Amreli and said that identity cards of every person should be checked.”We will contact all garba organizers in Gujarat and across the country to request them to check the identity of all youths. Navratri is a religious festival and Muslims should not be allowed here,” Togadia told Times of  India, as appeared the matter in its 17 Sept, Delhi Edition.

TOI captures the news as, “Muslim boys luring Hindu girls at garba venues has always remained a problem in Godhra. If Muslims have problem with everything including singing `Vande Mataram’, why should they be allowed at garba venues?” said Jaimin Shah, one of the leaders of HAHRS.

Some organizers have agreed to allow Muslim youths only if they are accompanied by their family. Accord ing to the samiti, they have also received support from major garba organizers in Godhra and formed a team of volunteers to stop Muslim youth.

“Around 1,500 members will keep a check at the venues,” said Shah, adding that the group, which hasn’t registered itself, is holding awareness meetings since over a fortnight.

“We won’t allow any Muslim youth to our garba to avoid `love Jihad’,” said P B Baria, organizer of Aadhya Shakti Garba Mahotsav, which draws a crowd of 35,000. “If they come with their families, they are disciplined. So, we will allow Muslim families inside the venue,” he said.

“We don’t want any kind of disturbance and hence we have agreed that we will not collect donation from Muslims nor issue passes,” said K T Parikh, organizer of Maa Shakti Garba Group. “We, however have no means to check whether any Muslim or a Hindu is entering the garba venue.”

Actually, such restrictions were imposed in some places in United States in a separate way of action where the Hindu organisers of such Hindu festival installed Hindu deities for worship  in the entry so that all the participants  were compelled to offer sandal paste, sindoor (vermilion) and flowers to the deities as a compulsion with taking prasadam and amritam. With this arrangements all the Muslim participants compelled to avoid such Hindu religious and cultural programmes.

“Those who have not any respect on Motherland as an identical for of Goddess Aadhya Shakti or Mata Durga (Navratri is a special awareness/ consciousness creating festival dedicated to Mata Durga) and who are not ready to utter Vande Mataram, why they are so interested to come to our Garba festival attached to Navratri?”, said one of the organiser to Hindu Existence.

Shri Upananda Brahmachari, Editor of Hindu Existence appreciated the matter with a tips that if  Muslim groups of Gujarat or other places are so interested to join Garba or love so much Garba, they should start Garba in Navratri and they should make effort to unveil their women and girls (from burqa) for getting them in their programme. No problem. This policy maintained in Godhra for Garba must be adopted by Hindus in all other religious and cultural programmes tagged with Hindu Dharma, for the sacntity, safety and security of Hindus.

RSS’s rakhi drive to fight ‘love jihad’ and to protect Hindus each others.

Posted by hinduexistence on August 10, 2014

In west UP, RSS’s rakhi drive to fight ‘love jihad’

RSS's Rakhi Drive to fight 'Love Jihad'.Rajiv Srivastava |  TNN | Lucknow | Aug 8, 2014:: As Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) alleges “love jihad,” the outfit has planned to counter it by “invoking the rakhi bond” in the sensitive western Uttar Pradesh belt.

Beginning on August 10, RSS will carry out a weeklong awareness drive in the region wherein its cadre will tie rakhis to Hindus and ask them to take a pledge to “protect their religion” and chant the mantra: “Yen baddho Bali raja danvendro mahabal, tein twam abhibadhnami raksh machalmachal (Do not fail to protect whosoever ties rakhi on you).”

During the drive, to be conducted between August 10 and 17, RSS plans to tie rakhis on 10 lakh Hindus.

“Each RSS worker from west UP has been asked to tie at least 100 rakhis each in both rural and urban areas. Rakhis would be tied to both men and women. People will also be urged to protect girls from ‘love jihad’,” said RSS’ regional pracharak and in-charge Dharm Jagran (west UP) Rajeshwar Singh.

The region, which political experts say witnessed polarization of votes in the wake of communal clashes, will also see bypolls in at least five seats. BJP has asked UP government to reveal the names of persons involved in forced conversions and curb “love jihad” in west UP.

“The district magistrate concerned has to be informed before any conversion. So the government needs to tell whether the process was followed in Meerut, where a Hindu girl was forced to convert,” said BJP spokesman Chandramohan.

RSS is also planning to conduct similar drives during all important occasions in the Hindu calendar.

Largest Ram Navmi and Hanuman Jayanti Procession at Bhagyanagar (Hyderabad) in Southern India.

HE Media | Bhagyanagar (Andhra Pradesh) | 09 April 2014:: Over 6 lakhs Hindus took part in the mammoth procession taken out even this year by staunch pro-Hindu activist, Shri. Thakur Rajasingh on the occasion of ‘Sri Ram- Navami’ on 8th April. The procession was taken out from Dhulpet to ‘Hanuman Vyayamshala’ with acclamation of ‘Jai Sri Ram’ en route. Sushri Sadhvi Saraswati participated in the procession as chief guest. The procession was concluded after reaching ‘Hanuman Vyayamshala’.  Shri Thakur Raja Singh and Sushri Sadhvi Saraswatiji addressed devout Hindus joining the procession.

Sushri Sadhvi Saraswatiji said: 

1. This land is of neither Hyder nor Ali; it is of ‘Bhagyalakshmi’.

2. Now, we will have to carry ‘Mala’ in one hand and fight with ‘bhaalaa’ in the other.

10174920_272853782875553_5781843775288332153_n3. It is very unfortunate for Hindus that tax is levied on Amarnath pilgrimage and grants are given to ‘Haj’ pilgrimage.

4. If every Hindu tries to stop cow-slaughter, slaughtering of cows will stop on its own.

5. Bhagavan Srikrushna has given us message, through ‘Bhagavat Geeta’, to fight against the unrighteous.

6. If Hindus are united, anti-nationals like Owaisi will not be able to stay here.

Shri Thakur Raja Singh said: 

1. In the course of Kaal-Chakra (Time Cycle), the Ram Rajya is going to be established in Bharat within few months.

2. Police and Army are the protectors of citizen of India. Hindus respect their duties and sacrifice.

3. But, one maroon, who talked about lifting police and army for 15 minutes by describing them impotent, is really an impotent and treason.

4. Vande Matara is the essence and lifeline of Indian Freedom. But some subversive MPs and MLAs are disrespecting Vande Mataram. Those disobeying Vande Matarm are culprits and punishable.

5. Every Indian must respect and recite Vande Mataram. Who will deny Vande Mataram, they will be driven out from Bharat.

6. Always  say: Vande Mataram. Jai Sri Ram. Bharat Mata ki Jai. Go Mata ki Jai.

Greetings of Sri Ram Navmi. Chant Ramraksha Stotram. It’s not just a chant. It’s Powerful and Blissful.

Posted by hinduexistence on April 19, 2013

Jai Sri Ram

Greetings of Sri Ram Navmi to all.

Ramraksha stotra: Not just a divine chant.

Barkha Mathur | Nagpur | TNN | Apr 19, 2013:: The nine days of ChaitraNavratri, from GudiPadwa till Ram Navami, are filled with chants of Ramrakshastotra. The same can be heard at temples, homes and in groups, as people come together for collective recitals.

Considered to be one of the most sacred chants, it has tremendous powers to protect a devout from evil, says Prafulla Nandangiri, secretary of Bhonsla Ved Shala in Mahal. “There are a total of 38 shlokas, of which some like the 35th one is ‘siddha’. Reciting it can provide mental strength to a person, by making him feel fearless,” he says. This is a siddha stotra for complete protection of body and when read 1,300 times, it can destroy all dangers that a person may be facing, says Nandangiri.

“Ramraksha is also considered to be good for a newborn child and the new mother, and is read out while tying the black thread around the neck of an infant,” he says, adding that there are different rhythms for reciting it.

“The stotra focuses on all parts of the body and invokes Lord Ram to protect them. So, it is recited for children and also for those afflicted with some disease,” explains Kapil Chandrayan, a student of astrology. For best results, it should be read in Sanskrit for the vibrations that emanate through chanting of these sacred mantras, suggests Chandrayan.

Recitals of Ramraksha stotra are considered good during Chaitra Navratri as at this time god is present with all his powers in the sanctum sanctorum of temples, says Prasad Joshi, who is studying scriptures. “I recite the Ramraksha stotra as it helps me to master incantation of different chants. It has been written with anushtup chan as its poetic meter, which is a four-part mantra with 32 letters in one stanza. During these nine days, reading and reciting these sacred mantras is very effective.” <Read details here.>

Hindu Jagran Manch urged mass mourning in Holi as a mark of protest over atrocities upon Hindus in West Bengal and Bangladesh.

Posted by hinduexistence on March 26, 2013

Holi Mourning in Bengal 1Holi Mourning in Bengal 2

How can we celebrate a colourful Holi right now? Observe Mass Mourning.

No Holi- Leaflet

Hindu Existence Bureau, Kolkata | 26 March 2013:: Hindu Jagran Manch, West Bengal  urged Bengali Hindus for observing a day-long mourning in Holi festivity as a mark of protest for increasing atrocities upon Hindus in West Bengal in Naliakhali Viloence and Bangladesh after Shahabag Protest demanding the execution of Bangladesh War Criminal in Bangladesh Liberation in 1971.

While Hindus Naliakhali in Canning Subdivision in West Bengal saw a repetition of Noakhali (1946), where villagers of four villages (Goladahora-Maniktala, Gopalpur, Herobhanga-Satmukhi and Naliakhali) were uprooted for some days and more than 200 Hindu house-holds were arsoned by the outsiders after a killing of a Muslim Cleric by some unknown person on 19 Feb 2013. The severity of torture upon Hindus crossed the limit and it was a harrowing reminiscence of Noakhali Genocide of 1946. God saved the casualties anyway this time. But, Hindus in West Bengal  are regularly being attacked in a same pattern as the Hindus of Deganga (North 24 District) were also attacked and tortured in 2010 by the Muslim hooligans led by a Criminal TMC leader Hazi Nurul Islam, MP of Bashirhat.

The sate ruling parties and the TMC led Govt in West Bengal has not paid any special attention to the Hindu victims and humiliated them by giving them some Rs. 10,000/=, like this while the family of the murdered Imam, Ruhul Kuddus got mor than Rs. 2,00,000/= without any delay. Hindu victims of Naliakhali violence  are still in grief and hazards. Many of them are still homeless and helpless. There is no meaning Colour of Holi in Naliakhali at all.

Deep Mourning on Holi

The plight of minority Hindus inn Bangladesh has no limit for ever. After the Shahabag movement, the International Tribunal for War Criminal pronounced the execution of Delwar Hossai Sayedee. After that the Islamic fundamentals of Jamaat-e-Islami in Bangladesh has plundered the Hindu areas of Bangladesh only to drive away them from Bangladesh out of a dangerous plan to make Bangladesh as Kaffir Free and Hindu-less.

A reputed Bengali newspaper in Bangladesh, ‘Prothom Alo‘ has published the horrible account of  the torture upon the minority Hindus in the pot Shahbag period. The accounts include the attack upon 319 Hindu temples, Hindu house-holds and shops in last 24 days. Hindus are affected in 32 districts in Bangladesh.

But, this  reflection of the plight of BD Hindus in newspaper is more than true  though partial. Actually,  thousand small, medium and big temples, house-holds, shops, properties, valuables of Hindus in Bangladesh have been desecrated, torched, looted and vandalized including the pleasurable and pious Islamic game of  destroying  Hindu Gods and Goddesses in temples and Hindu homes.

The Hindus in Bangladesh have also no meaning of Holi Celebration as an obvious point of their frightened and persecuted atmosphere.

On the other hand the repression upon the Hindu Organizational members and Hindu leaders by TMC (Total Muslim Congress)  Supremo, Mamtaz Banu Arjee in these days are all time high.

All these odd happenings in Bengal and Bangladesh include blood-shed of Hindu brothers, rape of Hindu Women and unchecked tears of Hindu Mothers. The apathy or the anti-pathy in this  situation is very shocking. These victims of Jihad have no colour of Holy in their grief stricken phase of life.

Flavour of Shahbag in KolkataIn this context, the Hindu Jagaran Manch and Hindu Existence Forum jointly gave a call to observe mourning and reject all colours of Holi in protest to Islamic Violence in Noliakhali, Canning, West Bengal; Post Shahabag attack on minority Hindus in 32 districts in Bangladesh and unlawful detention of Hindu activists in West Bengal Jails by autocrat-&-pro-Islamic maroon Mamataz Banu Arjee.

Let the children play Holi, they know nothing. But what should we do?

YES,  WE CAN NOT CELEBRATE HOLI THIS TIME, IGNORING THE BLOODSHED OF OUR BROTHERS, MODESTY OF OUR SISTERS AND TEARS OF OUR MOTHERS. WE MAY CAN OBSERVE ARANDHAN (NO COOKING),  HUNGER STRIKE, PROTEST RALLY, STREET CORNERS, LEAFLETING, POSTERING ETC., TO EXPRESS OUR SOLIDARITY WITH THE GLOBAL HINDU BENGALIS EVERYWHERE ALONG WITH STRUGGLING PEOPLE AT SHAHBAG.

SAY NO COLOUR OR ENJOYMENT IN THIS HOLI. OBSERVE A MASS MOURNING AS IT IS EXPECTED IN 1000 PLACES IN BENGAL, TO CONVEY THAT WE REMAIN COLOUR-LESS THIS YEAR WITH OUR FRIENDS IN  CRISIS AT NALIAKHALI OR NOAKHALI.

Hindu Jagran Manch has made a huge postering and leafleting to refrain Bengali Hindus from celebrating Holi for a chief enjoyments. 

 The facebook community ‘Shahbager pase aamrao‘ and Some social media groups are unitedly conducting the signature campaign in support of Shahbag movement with protesting the gross violence upon minorities in Bangladesh in post Shahbag period.

Some organisations like Hindu Jagran Manch, RSS, facebook community ‘Shahbager pase aamrao‘ and others have planned to lead a candle march for peace, equality, fraternity in Bangladesh on the very liberation day of Bangladesh on 26th March  from the clutch of fundamental rulers of Pakistan. The Candle march is scheduled to start at 4 pm from Academy of Fine arts and will end at the statue of Gandhi at Red Road, Kolkata.

SHANKARACHARYA ARRESTED by BJP Govt of Madhya Pradesh! 

Large Police Force Deployment to Suppress Hindus from their Puja Rights.

LIVE : NAMAJ PERFORMED IN BHOJSHALA COMPLEX UNDER THE PROTECTION OF BJP.

50000 Hindus performed Puja at Bhojshala; 016 Muslims offered Namaj. But Puja was stopped at the time of Namaj.

real face of bjp

Where are the BJP_RSS_VJP_BAJRANGDAL supporters right now ??? Come here
MP Police capture Shankaracharya Narendrananda Saraswati, taken away from Bhojshala :

As per the latest updates from Mr. Vinay Panavalkar of HJS Co-Ordinator, Madhya Pradesh Police as instigated by the Ruling BJP Govt, stopped vehicle of Shankaracharya Narendrananda Saraswati and his companions going towards Mata Saraswati Mandir, Bhojshala. Police forced Shankaracharya and others to come down from vehicle and seized their mobile phones, some 20 kms far from Bhojshala complex. Immediately Shankaracharya sat on Road for Dharna. But Police forced him to get into  that vehicle and that was taken over by Police and they have taken away Shankaracharya and others from Dhar. Revered Shankaracharya and his disciples are taken to unknown places. In the meanwhile thousand of Hindutva supporters came down to roads in Dhar and in some places in Madhya Pradesh.

Why BJP is following footsteps of Congress by trying to suppress voice and constitutional rights of Hindus ? Does it not look like ‘Moghalai’ (Mughal-like regime) of BJP ? If today BJP is preventing Hindu Saints and devotees from entering Hindu temples, tomorrow it may destroy Hindu temples like Mughal invaders ! RSS-VHP_Bajrangis are vacate onlookers!

Inspector General of Police, Indore, Smt Anuradha Shankar said police arranged safe Namaj for 116 Muslim Namajis and stopped Hindu Puja for the time being when Namaj was conducting. In such a way Hindus will be compelled to stop their Dharmik performance time and again to satiate the Muslims in Bharat only to promote Arabic Expansion in our Social, Cultural  & National Life. Awake Hindus Awake!

SHAME!

Bhojshala : Police arrest and brutally beat up Shri. Navalkishore Sharma of Bhojshala Mukti Yagna Samiti

February 11, 2013 | Hindu Existence Forum | Bhopal | Madhya Pradesh:: It is a bare Face Off of BJP and VHP in the case of recovery of Bhojshala Bagdevi Mandir on ensuing Basanta Panchami. The brutality on devout Hindu Activist by the Police under the control of Madhaya Pradesh Govt, has been exposed now. 

Intimidation by BJP Govt. and Police in MP   

Indian ArmyMadhya Pradesh police arrested Mr. Navalkishore Sharma, the National Convener of ‘Bhojshala Mukti-yadnya Samiti’ and his activists who have been fighting for Hindus’ right of performing ‘puja’ in ‘Bhojshala’ on the day of ‘Vasant-Panchami’, falling on Friday, 15th February this year. They have also been demanding that Muslims should not be allowed to read ‘namaz’ on that day in ‘Bhojshala’. His elder brother has already been arrested. Police not only arrested Navalkishore Sharma but they even beat him up brutally. (Editor of Dainik Sanatan Pravat commented “In Hindu Rashtra, stringent action will be taken against such cruel Police who are oppressing innocent Hindus!” ). Police have claimed that Mr. Navalkishore Sharma had a gun and a bullet. (Hindu activists have been holding agitations for the past so many days, in lawful manner. Will they carry guns ? Can it not be a ploy hatched by police on the instructions of BJP Govt. to arrest pro-Hindu activists under false charges? Hindus must realize that it is the conspiracy of BJP Govt. to crush their agitation ! – Editor SP).   

Navalkishore Sharma injured in police beating has been admitted to hospital !

Navalkishore Sharma has been injured in police beating and has been admitted to a hospital. Hundreds of activists had gathered outside the hospital to meet Mr. Sharma; but police kept tight security and stopped them from meeting.

Instructions for District Coordinators of Hindu Janajagruti Samiti.

Hindus’ should get a right to perform ‘puja’ in ‘Bhojshala’ on the day of Vasant-Panchami; for this, protest against BJP Govt. in every district !

For the last few days, Hindus have been trying to gain right, in lawful manner, for performing ‘puja’ on ‘Vasant-Panchami’ in ‘Bhojshala’ instead of Muslims reading ‘namaz’; but BJP Government in Madhya Pradesh has paid no heed. As a result, Saints and pro-Hindu activists have now taken an aggressive stand of staging agitations. BJP Government has imposed curfew in Dhar District to crush this agitation. This stance of BJP Government should be condemned in every district of this country. Non-Hindus immediately unite when their religious sentiments are hurt and raise their voice. Now, even Hindus need to come together and register their protest immediately against injustice meted out to them.

Activists of Hindu Janjagruti Samiti (HJS) should, therefore, stage agitation in every district, along with pro-Hindu organizations that hold similar views like HJS, to register protest. As far as possible, such protests/agitations should be staged in front of BJP’s offices and the office-bearers of BJP should be taken to task on this issue. The banner, in Hindi, required for this agitation and handbill are made available on the usual web-address and on HJS Website here.

Bhojshala Yagna Kund Vagdevi Bhojshala and Kamal Maulana Dargah Police lathicharged Hindus

Bhojshala : Ayodhya of Madhya Pradesh !

saffron flag‘Bhojshala’ is an ancient and the only temple of Mata Saraswati, built by Raja Bhoj in 1034 AD. (‘See Photo Evidences’) Bhojshala was home to thousands of students and scholars and it was main centre of education. Attacks on Bhojshala started from 1305 AD and Muslims built today’s Kamal Moulana dargah near Bhojshala. (‘Read Detailed Timeline of Facts’)

saffron flagBhojshala has become victim of Governments of Madhya Pradesh due to appeasement of Muslims for votes. Today Archeological Survey of India (ASI) allows everyone to go inside Bhojshala ‘as a tourist’ with fees. On tuesday, Hindus can enter in Bhojshala and they are allowed to take flowers and akshata. But since the new idol of Vagdevi is seized by Madhya Pradesh government and kept in Gwalior jail, Hindus can’t offer anything to Saraswati Mata. On friday, Muslims are allowed to offer Namaz in Bhojshala complex. Vasant (Basant) Panchami, also known as Mata Saraswati Jayanti is the only day in the year on which Hindus are allowed to perform full-fledge puja by taking idol or photo of Mata Saraswati inside Bhojshala. So Muslims can offer Namaz in Bhojshala 52 times in a year, but Hindus can perform puja only once in a year. It should be noted that Dhar, where Bhojshala is located, has 16 mosques to offer Namaz.

saffron flagWhat do you want in Bhojshala on this Vasant Panchami (15th February 2013) - Puja or Namaz ?

omom

na

 saffron flagIn year 2006, Vasant (Basant) Panchami was on friday, so the demand of the Hindus to perform puja in Bhojshala for the full day was refused and the police also used force against Hindu devotees and arrested many. Now this year 2013, again Vasant (Basant) Panchami happens to be on friday and Hindu Devotees are demanding to perform puja for the whole day and restrict Muslims to offer Namaz in Bhojshala on this day. Also the BJP Govt. should release Vagdevi (Mata Saraswati) idol from Gwalior Jail, which was installed by Hindus in Bhojshala.

For details refer tabs Timeline of Facts and Photo Evidences.

O Hindus, take up this challenge and do your duty towards Dharma !

saffron flagOur Demandssaffron flag

  • on 15th February 2013, ‘Bhoj-shala’ should be made available to Hindus instead of Muslims for ‘namaz’, as it is the day of Vasant Panchami falling on Friday. 
  • The Government should release the idol of Shri Vagdevi made of ‘Ashta-dhatu (8 metals) from the Gwalior jail.
  • From the evidences, it is amply clear that Bhojshala is nothing but a Hindu temple and hence it should be handed over to Hindus completely.
  • The Government should restrict Muslims permanently to enter and offer Namaz in Bhojshala.
  • Today it is observed that few fanatics and miscreants are damaging ancient idols of Deities and other signs of temple. This damage should stop immediately and Government should ensure that these idols and signs should not get harmed.
  • Bring back the original idol of Shri Vagdevi from London Museum.

Maha Kumbh Mela at Prayagraj. Ganga Sagar Mela 2013. Sab tirath bar bar… Ganga Sagar ek bar…

Posted by hinduexistence on January 13, 2013

News From Prayag Maha Kumbh: Maha Kumbh begins, 1.1 crore pilgrims take dip today on Makar Sankranti (14-01-2013). View the First Sahi Snan. Har Har Gange.

gangasagar mela 2013

Ganga Sagar Mela – 2013 (Toll free help line 18003453220).

ॐ Welcome to Ganga Sagar Mela    Makar Sankranti     Kapil Muni Temple at Sagardwip

2013 gangasagarHere thousands of people take Holy Dip during Makar Sankranti, usually falls on 14 or 15th January every year. Gangasagar pilgrimage and fair is the second largest congregation of mankind after the holy Kumbha Mela. The latter is observed once in four years at alternate locations in north, central and central-west parts of the country, Gangasagar fair and pilgrimage is held annually on the Sagar Island’s southern tip in the Ganges delta atop the Bay of Bengal.

The Kapil Muni Temple at Sagardwip is the fourth constructed temple in the island. The first was razed by a tornado and the next two were destroyed by the sea. It was in 1961, the chief minister of Bengal, BC Roy donated Rs.11,000 to construct the present temple which was completed in 1973.

Sagardwip (Sagar Island), 128kms away from Kolkata presents an ideal repose for a quiet weekend. A small island in the Sunderban delta, Sagardwip is bequeathed with a quiet charm amidst the completely unspoiled and silvery beach on the estuary of the mighty Ganga. It has a lighthouse that offers you a panoramic view of the surroundings. Quite a hot spot for Hindu pilgrimage.

One lakh take the holy dip at Gangasagar… Another four lakh pilgrims are likely to reach…..

Gangasagar | 12 th January 2013 | Hindu Existence Media :: In the run-up to the festival of Makar Sankranti, around one lakh devotees have taken the holy dip at Gangasagar, the confluence of the Ganga and the Bay of Bengal.

West Bengal Panchayat minister Subrata Mukherjee today said the government is trying to make the annual fair by increasing the safety and comfort level for the devotees.

He said they are also constructing permanent guest houses for visitors and also a permanent jetty at a cost of Rs 5 crore.

Though the shameful pilgrimage tax of Rs. 5/= has been waved out this year, the escalated conveyance fare is still hammering the capacity of the common rural pilgrims coming from far away from the farthest corner of Bharat out of their spiritual passion to dip into holy Ganges confluence with Bay of Bengal,  even once for a life.

This escalation of Bus and ferry services in the Mela time could be managed by the Govt. of West Bengal this time, if a 3 Crore budget for the make shift wooden rest house for the ‘torn Sari-Hawai Chappal’ clad Chief Minister of West Bengal, Miss(?) Mamata Banerjee was possible to be averted from misutilizing the public exchequer.

The South 24 Parganas District authority is discharging their duties on war footing to welcome the expected 5 lakh pilgrims to the Ganga Sagar Makar Sankranti Mela this year. Over 200 NGOs are also rendering their stream of cooperation to make this Dharmik events a grand success.

Swami Vivekananda 150th birth anniversary celebration at Chicago.

By J.V. Lakshmana Rao | Chicago India Tribune :: Outside India, Chicago occupies an important place in the life and work of Swami Vivekananda, the great Hindu monk.

Chicago immortalizes Swami Vivekananda with many landmark monuments like Swami Vivekananda Vedanta Society of Chicago and Sri Ramakrishna Universal Temple in Homer Glen, a larger-than-life size bronze statue of Swami Vivekananda and the Vivekananda Spiritual Center at the Hindu Temple of Greater Chicago in Lemont, a bronze plaque at the  Art Institute of Chicago  commemorating his historic address at the World’s Parliament of Religions.  The City of Chicago has also immortalized Swami Vivekananda by naming a long stretch of prestigious downtown marketplace Michigan Avenue.

Swami Vivekananda and the making of modern India.

By Amiya Prosad Sen | Jan 12, 2013 | TOI :: In several ways, the life and work of Swami Vivekananda (1863-1902) mark the historical process of India rediscovering herself in modern times. These are also emblematic of the ways in which a tradition modernizes or creates alternative forms of modernity. Today, as the nation celebrates the 150th birth anniversary of the Swami, it is only apt that we critically reflect on his life and legacy.

Generally speaking, his contribution to India and to the larger world may be summed up in four ways. First, in modern India, it was Vivekananda who first emphasized that our everyday lives would become more meaningful only when spiritualized. It was in this spirituality that he re-discovered, as it were, India’s message to herself and to the world. For Vivekananda, this spiritual self-realization led to people more fully realizing their own potentialities. Especially in the context of a colonized society like that of 19th century India, this was tantamount to men and women locating greater self-belief in themselves.

The human soul being free, suggested Vivekananda, more than compensated for the loss of political freedom.

Second, even though the Swami rejected political praxis and West inspired social and religious reforms, his essential message was the empowerment of the people: through education, collective thought and action but above all, realizing he underlying unity of all human existence. In the Hindu tradition, ascetic detachment from the world had been criticized even before Vivekananda but it was he who first actively joined the idea of individual renunciation to committed social service. >>Read details here.

‘Kumbh Mela’ the Greatest Show on Earth and The World’s Most Massive Act of Oldest Faith…

Posted by hinduexistence on December 19, 2012

'Kumbh Mela' the Greatest Show on Earth and The World's Most Massive Act of Oldest Faith...

‘Kumbh Mela’ the greatest show on Earth, says a study

According to the study done by a team of professors across the UK and India, the Kumbh Mela attracts worldwide attention as a remarkable spectacle: millions of pilgrims bathing in the Ganges, parades of gurus on thrones, flanked by naked Naga Sadhus smeared in ash…..
………….

Kumbha Hindu ExistenceLondon | Tue, 18 Dec 2012 | By PTI :: The Kumbh Mela, one of the largest religious gatherings in the world, to be held at Sangam in Allahabad early next year has been described as the “greatest show on Earth” in a four-year study by British and Indian researchers.

Up to 100 million people will gather on the shores of the Ganges to celebrate the Hindu festival commencing on January 14, 2013. For four years the team of British and Indian researchers have been studying the event, seeking to understand how people treat each other, how they experience the crowd and what impact the crowd has on their everyday lives.

They will present their findings at a special event at Allahabad University on January 24, 2013. The study described the Kumbh Mela as an incredible event and the “greatest show on Earth”.

The Kumbh Mela attracts worldwide attention as a remarkable spectacle: millions of pilgrims bathing in the Ganges, parades of gurus on thrones, flanked by naked Naga Sadhus smeared in ash.

This research, led by Nick Hopkins at the University of Dundee, Prof Stephen Reicher at the University of St Andrews, and Prof Narayanan Srinivasan at the University of Allahabad shows it to be remarkable in other ways as well.

How is it that a vast city of strangers emerges from nothing every year, and yet it functions harmoniously? How is it that people thrive in an environment that is densely crowded, intensely noisy and often insanitary?

The event in Allahabad will provide the answers to these and other questions about the Mela. It will also provide insights that are relevant, not only to the Mela, but go to the heart of processes that make human social life possible, which create (or undermine) social cohesion and which shape our sense of well being. ‘Sometimes we look at the Mela as an exotic event and focus on how different the pilgrims are from us. Our work shows how the pilgrim experience has lessons for all of us about how to create a good community and to ensure that people thrive in the community,’ Hopkins said. ‘By all the tenets of conventional wisdom, the Mela shouldn’t work. It is crowded, noisy and unsanitary.

One might expect people to be stressed, quarrelsome and conflictual. Yet the event is harmonious and people are serene. Studying the Mela has forced us to reconsider many basic beliefs about how people function in society,’ Reicher said. Narayanan said, ‘This has been the largest ever social science collaboration between the UK and India and possibly the most successful. The event in Allahabad will be very exciting. It will reveal findings that are sure to surprise people. It will change their understanding of crowds and communities.’

Hindu Existence  Post Script:

The Kumbh Mela

Kumbh Mela is a mass Hindu pilgrimage in which Hindus gather at the Ganges, river Godavari and river Shipra, where bathing for purification from sin is considered especially efficacious.

Mainly, the Ardh (half) Kumbh Mela is celebrated every six years at Haridwar and Allahabad, the Purna (complete) Kumbh takes place every twelve years, at four places Allahabad, Haridwar, Ujjain, and Nashik. The Maha(great) Kumbh Mela which comes after 12 ‘Purna Kumbh Melas’, or 144 years, is held at Allahabad.

Five Types of Kumbh Melas • Maha Kumbh Mela – occurring every 144 years – only in Allahabad. • Purna Kumbh Mela – after every 12 years – last one took place in January 2001 in Allahabad. • Ardh Kumbh – 6th year after Kumbh Mela. • Kumbh Mela – every 3rd years, rotating through Prayag, Nasik, Haridwar and Ujjain. • Magh Mela – Annual, held every year except years of Kumbh Mela and Ardh Kumbh Mela Held in Magh (Jan-Feb); hence the name. Only in Allahabad.

According to the Mela Administration’s estimates, around 70 million people participated in the 45-day Ardh Kumbh Mela in Allahabad, in 2007.

The previous Kumbh Mela, held in 2010 in Haridwar, was, before it occurred, estimated by the authorities to attract between 30 and 70 million people. Coming Ardha Kumbh Mela will start on 14-January-2013 at Allahabad.

Most Significant Days During The Kumbh Mela

Makar Sankranti  (14th January 2013 Sunday) – Shahi Snan

Kumbh-the greatest show on earthA Holy bath during this period carries special significance. Those who take a holy bath in the rivers Ganga, Yamuna, Godavari, Krishna and Kaveri acquire pious credits . Ganga is considered as the river of heaven. This river came to earth by the religious austerity of Bhagirath and river had conjunction with ocean for the reclamation of ocean. The day Ganga dissolved in ocean was the day of Makar Sankranti. Hence, the virtue of bathing in Ganga today is much more than any other day. In Kolkata, lakhs of devotees come to take bath in Ganga sagar. In Allahabad as well, great masses come for bathing and doing charity on the banks of Sangam. One month of Kalpvas(kumbh mela) is also started in Allahabad from the day of Makar Sankranti, which is been followed since the era of Ramayana.

Paush Purnima (27 January 2013 Sunday)

The day occurs when the moon is full in the Hindu month of Paush. This is the last full moon of winter. By this time, the sadhu and hundreds of thousands of pilgrims arrive at the Kumbh Mela. On the day of Paush Purnima, devotees take baths in various sacred rivers like Ganga and Yamuna. People take baths at various places including Haridwar and relieve themselves of all their sins and problems. Taking baths, donations, charities etc are considered very sacred on this day. The baths of Magh month start with Paush Purnima and hence, this day is considered very important. It is believed that all wishes come true on this day.

Ekadashi Snan (6 February 2013)

Ekadashi, Krishna Paksha in the Hindu month  Magha, 2069 Vikram Samvat. At times Ekadashi fasting is suggested on two consecutive days. It is advised that Smartha with family should observe fasting on first day only. The alternate Ekadashi fasting, which is the second one, is suggested for Sanyasis, widows and for those who want Moksha. When alternate Ekadashi fasting is suggested for Smartha it coincides with Vaishnava Ekadashi fasting day. Ekadashi fasting on both days is suggested for staunch devotees who seek for love and affection of Lord Vishnu.

Mauni Amavasya Snan (10 February 2013 Sunday) – Shahi Snan

For the holy men and women, this is the main bathing day. New members to various holy monastic orders receive their first initiation on this day. The Amavasya of Magh Masa is called the Mauni Amavasya. Sun and Moon enter and the Capricorn sign, because of the transit, on this day. This day is celebrated as the birthday of Manu Rishi. It is believed, Lord Brahma gave origination to Maharaja Manu and queen Shatrupa. Hence, this day is considered as the beginning of the universe creation. Capricorn sign has the Yoga of Sun and Moon which increases the significance of this Amavasya. Bathing in Sangam of Allahabad, gives virtues to an individual, on this day. According to some scholar, Maun Vrat should be observed. Maun (silent) Vrat means to control all our senses. It depends on a person for how long he wants to observe silence. People take the resolution of Maun Vrat for a day, or a month, or for one year.

Hindus reject Jagaddhatri Puja Celebrations at Tehatta (Nadia, West Bengal) in a protest to Islamic Pro-activism by the State Administration.

Posted by hinduexistence on November 20, 2012

Tehatta Jagaddhatri Puja Coordination Committee resolved to postpone all ‘Jagaddhtri Puja’ at Tehatta Town.

Upananda Brahmachari from Tehatta | 19th Nov. 2012 :: Tehatta Jagaddhatri Puja Coordination Committee resolved to postpone all ‘Jagaddhtri Puja’ in Tehatta town this year in a protest of ‘trigger happy’ Police Firing on 14-11-2012 and ‘Obstinate Pro-Muslim’ Administration.

On Monday evening the meeting between administration and police led by Sri Sudipto Bhattacharjee – SDO, Tehatta  and the Tehatta Jagaddhatri Puja Coordination Committee led by Sri Amarnath Biswas found no amicable settlement as the Puja committee of PWD Para Baroari Puja Committee wanted to perform a symbolic ‘Ghat Sthapan Puja’ at least in the very place of last year Puja and the Administration and Police negated it out rightly.

This year Shri Shri Jgaddhatri Mata Puja falls on and from 19th Nov to 23 Nov according to Bengali Hindu Calender and Chandan Nagar (Hoogly) and Tehatta (Nadia) are the most renowned places in West Bengal for conducting the same with special grandeur and most spectacular celebrations.

For the obstinate and pro-Muslim decision of the Tehatta administration and the policy of TMC (Total Muslim Congress as the people of Bengal usually name the Trinmool Congress), compelled the Puja Coordination to all 56 ‘Barowari’ and Sarvojanan’ Jagaddhatri Pujas of Tehatta, including the PWD Para Barwari Puja where TMC – MP (Member of Parliament) and eminent Benagli Film star , Sri Tapas Pal came to inaugurate the puja just last year.

A senior member of the Puja Coordination Committee told the Hindu Existence Team that “the land of ‘Eidgah’ and ‘Barowari Puja Place’ both are part of Vested and PWD lands. The Muslims are allowed to encroach the land permanently with boundaries under the blessed State Islamic policy, but a symbolic ‘Ghat Sthapanam Puja’ is not allowed in the previous year’s puja place by the same administration and ‘trigger happy’ police. This is too much. PWD lands, roadsides, most of the market places and crossing places are under the clutch of Muslim public and land grabbers in Nadia. But, police and administration have now perhaps directed only to uproot all the rights of Hindus in Nadia to make Nadia a Muslim majority district.” However, Nadia (Tehatta is one of the four subdivisions in the district) is a bordering district of West Bengal, adjacent to Bangladesh, where the Muslim infiltration, cross border smuggling, illegal cow and arms trading, net of fake Indian currency and obviously Islamic fundamentalism are seen in a very optimum level.

After the police violence and firing upon the peaceful demonstration of Hindus lead by the Tehatta Jagaddhatri Puja Coordination Committee and ‘Tehatta bandh’ convened by Tehatta Business Owners Association on 14th Nov at Haulia (spelt as Howlia also) Crossing (where a person Ashoke Sen was died at Police Firing by SDPO himself), the insane SDPO, Dr Shailesh, IPS lodged a FIR  (Police Case No. 825/2012) against 18 Hindu persons by their particular names in Tehatta police station in Nadia. It has been reported that Police is trying to connect RSS and other Hindu organisation in that violence unreasonably under the instruction of State Administration from Writers’ Buildings, Kolkata.

Marvellously, the SDPO, Tehatta has determined Sri  Pintu Sarkar, a sub-inspector of Tehatta police station as the investigation officer into the case. This  Pintu Sarkar, SI,  himself is an accused of police firing case in which a housewife was killed at Bogula of Hanskhali in Nadia in a Vijaya Dashmi Immersion procession on 7th Oct. 2011. A case is going on  under section 302 of IPC against Sri Sarkar in the Hon’ble Calcutta High Court in this matter, so far the reports gathered by Hindu Existence Forum.

Both the state leaders of Congress and CPIM of West Bengal, vehemently opposed the recent police firings in West Bengal under a TMC ruling and macaronic Mamataz Banu Arjee advocating ‘Change’, ‘Development’, ‘Party Discipline’, ‘No Confidence Motion in Parliament with BJP support’ and obviously for her fantasy of an Islamic West Bengal.

While leader in opposition in West Bengal Assembly, Dr Surjyokanto Mishra (CPIM) accused Mamata Banerjee for playing her Communal Cards for Muslim votes in the ensuing  WB Panchayet election, Sri Adhir Ranjan Roy Chowdhury, veteran Congress leader and Rly Minister of State, GOI blamed the West Bengal Chief Minister for her inappropriate steps in which the communal situation in WB is rapidly engendering the public in her culpable regime.
