Express News Service |  New Delhi | 11 December 2013::  Over a hundred Hindu refugees from Pakistan held a protest outside the office of United Nations (UN) here on the occasion of International Human Rights Day.

They submitted a memorandum addressed to UN Secretary General Ban-ki-Moon at the United Nations information centre demanding Indian citizenship to refugees. Protestors said that para-military religious terrorist outfits in Sindh have been harassing and terrorising Hindus.

The trail of harassment, murder, abduction, kidnapping of girls and their forced conversion as well as un-consensual marriages with the Muslims backed by the security establishment.

 Such a situation is resulting in a gradual exodus of Sindhi Hindus from their historical and indigenous land – Sindh, and the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, said Khemu Kalani (name changed), one of the protestors who along with 114 other Hindus came from Sindh province of Pakistan on a tourist visa to India via Rajasthan.

“These crimes committed against Hindus fall in the category of crimes against humanity and violation of various United Nations covenants, conventions, treaties, resolutions and instruments, particularly of the Article II, III, and IV of the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide,” said Swami Om of the Hindu Veer Sena, who was accompanying the protestors.

Gomti, 39, could not hold back her tears as she recalled tales of horror of young Hindu women being abducted, raped and converted in Sindh province of Pakistan. She is among the 750 Pakistani Hindu people who have fled Pakistan and come to Delhi. Ganga, a 42 year old woman (name changed) said that she left Sindh province of Pakistan and has come to Delhi with her husband and their six children.

 “We are called as kafir (or the non believer) in Pakistan; our children are not allowed to study in schools unless they convert to Islam and read the kalma. Wives of Hindu men are picked up and raped.

“When we go to police station to register complaints, the police drive us away saying rape is no big deal, has he taken anything from you?,” said Gomti, tears rolling down her cheeks.

Nahar Singh, a Delhiite who has given shelter to over 750 Pakistani Hindu refugees who came to Delhi over the past 18 months said, “ All they want is to live with respect and be allowed to stay as Hindus; the Government of India should grant them citizenship.”

Nahar Singh said that the refugee have already appealed to the President of India and all major constitutional authorities in the country including the Prime Minister, but in vain.

Nahar Singh added that thousands of these victimised Hindus, as well as their human rights defenders have sought refuge in India, where they no doubt face various legal, economic, and social issues.

The Centre, which has to either accept these refugees on the humanitarian grounds by recognising their refugee status or confer them the citizenship of India, has not come forth with any concrete decision.

Intellectual policy on Islam and Hindu Vigil.

Posted by hinduexistence on May 14, 2013

Intellectual policing on Islam must be an essential part in the life of Hindu culture.

Dr. Babu Suseelan. 

Supremacy of OMSince independence from British Christian Colonialists a number of developments have occurred in India that played an important part in shaping Hindu life. In the first place, India was divided by Islamists and bogus secular political leaders. There has been an increased recognition that all Muslims will go to PAKISTAN, an Islamic country. We have elected an atheist and anti-Hindu man Jawaharlal Nehru as the Prime Minister of India. Nehru believed in Islam, and his beliefs, thinking and action encouraged Muslims in India remain in India and to preach Islamic hatred and indulge in violence as prescribed in the Koran. Nehru and the anti-national Congress party have opened up the appeasement policy and special reservation and quota systems for Muslims. The activities the Nehru dynasty has in subsequent years have resulted in the demographic increase of Muslims. Subsequent Prime Ministers like Indira Gandhi, V.P. Singh, Deva Gowda, Manmohan Singh etc. continued pro-Islamic policies and programs. The ruling parties increased Hajj subsidy and pseudo secular Hindus never criticized pro-Islamist policies and or unwilling to let the majority Hindus study the Contemporary issues created by Islamic terrorists. Indian intellectuals, leftist liberals and pseudo secular Hindus never studied India beset by problems which are universally ascribed to inept handling of Islamic terrorism. Indian intellectuals, leftist academicians, and corrupt political leaders and phony secular leaders were reluctant to study the vital current Indian problems. What are the reasons for this?

In the first place many pseudo secular Hindus think that Sanatana Dharma is eternal and have the attitude that “all religions are the same” and special study of Islam is unnecessary.  Almost every political leaders, businessmen, military leaders, criminal justice administrators, religious leaders, and journalists, consider themselves as good Hindu and believes that they already know the ethical facts and principles of Hinduism on the basis of their own experience in dealing with Muslims. Unquestionably, these individuals, and other Hindus are responsible for the current predicaments and many of the social problems. But it is just as obviously true that they do not know enough to deal with some of the most significant social problems created my Islamists. Despite the vast erroneous knowledge and irrational information, they will find among good men the world over like Indian culture.  India’s intellectuals, Marxist academicians and the media pundits in India lack the knowledge how to handle problems created by Islamists. Industrial and social unrest, hate, prejudice, crime, violence, Islamic terrorism, love jihad, corruption, giving reservation to Muslims in all levels  and establishment of sharia court in different places,  continue to be major problems in India. But everywhere practical knowledge is lacking to problems created by Islamists. It must be pointed out that Indian administrators and criminal politicians lack the knowledge how to prevent the Islamic savages who succeed in killing Hindus.

The lack of understanding of Islam and Jihad results in failure to contain savage behavior of Muslims. Hindus are under constant threats from Islamists and in many states; Hindus are living in a prison of Islamic terror. And where are the bogus secularists, Indian liberals, Communist academicians and leftist intellectuals to educate the majority when they fear Islamic terror. It does not take a lot of imagination to understand how people behave when they are discriminated by the government and surrounded and attacked by Islamic savages.

In Kashmir all Hindus are killed. Some Hindus and other infidels or driven out, and they are living in refugee camps in their own country. Kerala, the land of Snakaracharya, Muslims will outnumber Hindus in few years. What does it say about the states of truth about Jihad, when the mainstream Indian media joins with corrupt politicians and Islamists? We can predict the outcome. Indian media, owned and operated by our enemies blame Hindus for their suffering by Islamic terrorists. Hindu women are raped; business attacked yet, the media blame the myopic Hindus. Good information is easily accessible and easily available on the atrocious behavior of Islamic criminals committed against innocent citizens. If the government administrators and Indian educated elites and leftist academicians want to eliminate full Jihad in India it is still possible. In India, there is a vacuum on the pseudo secular left, and Jihadist knows how to take full advantage.

Rather than seek to cultivate a united ideological font against Islam,  jihadi terrorist’s ideological roots, government of India, and Indian intellectuals did in fact did unilateral and emotionally irrelevant appeasement policy and played Islamic vote bank politics. It was like a hydra growing new heads.

However, the distinction between Islam (a closed desert Dogma) and open ended, systemic, pluralistic, Hinduism simply should not be pushed aside without an attempt to diagnose and exorcise some of the social, psychological, criminal problems created by Islamists by Indian intellectuals. And it is now a question of trying to find why Indian intellectuals, educated elites, and our politicians refuse to see the stereotypical presentation of Hinduism and Hindus in India and abroad. Are they suffering from a virulent form of cognitive disorder, unable to see the reality? “Cognitive Nihilism” hit them? Indian intellectual’s ideological prejudice shared with pseudo secular Hindus who are in deep denial, apathetic and indifferent. It would not take a genius to realize that there are distinction between Islam and Hinduism. Hinduism is highly eclectic, systemic, pluralistic, and open-ended and provides liberty to individuals. One wonders, why India’s intellectuals refuse to see the difference between a closed dogma and open ended Hindu philosophy. Although Islam is often powerfully associated with state and central government in India, how can we deny the fact that Muslims have killed more than 80 million Hindus, and is associated with mass killing and violence and terrorism? Hinduism is peaceful, analytic, and methodological. Very few Islamic theologians or Mullahs will admit that Islam is extremely parochial and encourage its followers to annihilate all infidels from the world (Um-welt) and create Dar-ul-Islam. They are not interested in philosophical analysis. Muslims are clever in al-taquiya (lying) and disguises and disarms a more profound and interesting possible about the intentions of Jihadi terrorists in India.  Like caged parrots, Muslims are still singing that “Islam is peace”. It is clear, that the truthfulness of Islam is questionable. There is something intellectually cowardly about their claims. AS closed dogmatic and aggressive fundamentalists, Islamic theologians and Mullahs refuse to face intellectual challenges and dialogue.

Many phony secular Hindus, corrupt politician, Islamic religious leaders and corrupt bureaucrats have the attitude that Hindu values and life principles are unnecessary. Every criminal politician in India thinks that they know Hinduism and already know the essential facts about Islam, Maoism, and Marxism. On the basis of their own experience in dealing with Marxists, Maoists, and Islamists.

The division between Santana Dharma and Islam is the expression of a commitment of Mohammad and freedom of thought. And more over it is an eternal conflict of differing and opposed habit of thought. The deeper point is that the philosophical and cultural truth matters. Whatever they might be, we have to take sides, and there by become a part of sane world. Islamists claim that their Saudi Arabian Islam is perfect and is a perfected and closed and the Koran which contains traditional Saudi Arabian culture, absurdities and irrational ideas for aggression and violence against infidels needs no renaissance, revision or reformation. What Muslims have to understand, then is the broad-mindedness and tolerance of Hindus.

Indian intellectuals, Politicians and Hindus must exhibit a commitment to neutralize Islam and Muslim Jihadis. Incorrect, intellectually dishonest and phony statements that “all religions are the same” simply serve to perpetuate Islamic terrorism against Hindus.

Hinduism is no longer confines to India. As an NRI Hindu, I feel that Hinduism has so much to offer to the world beset by Islamic terrorists, coercive religious conversion and interpersonal problems. As responsible citizens of a democratic world, NRI Hindus and Indian intellectuals must apply the science of Hindutva to problems created by the desert dogma called Islam. India will prosper if Indian citizens can understand the current division in culture. It is extremely impossible for India to avoid corruption, Jihadi terrorism, criminal behavior of Maoists, and Muslims unless Indian intellectuals come to the view that Islam is cruel, rude, closed, nasty, and brutish.

In my view the cultural pathology of Muslim Jihadist must be stopped.  As a final thought, we might consider that there are two cultures-one humanistic, pluralistic, systemic, rationalistic, peaceful and tolerant. The other (ISLAM) is against democracy, human rights, pluralism, peace, and co-existence and even distorts humanist modernity. Muslims are brutal, intolerant, and aggressive.  Hinduism is truth and meaning, knowledge and wisdom. Islam is opposed to harmony, religious tolerance, and not in favor of social progress, science, technology and modern industry.

Islamists are probably the absolute worse human right violators of Hindus in the world. Since the Indian media and the Sonia administration have in varying degrees decided to ignore or whitewash this otherwise growing epidemic of human pain and suffering of Hindus. Muslims are conditioned to believe that Hindus are hypocrites, fanatical, intolerant and the source of the world’ vows. In fact, Hindus are the by far the most persecuted religious groups around the world.

The situation has gone from bad to worse, politically in the light of the fact that there is no intellectual policing of Islam. The so Called anti-Hindu Indian Intellectuals are cohort with Islamic theologians and Mullahs and refuse to take intellectual challenges to Islam. It is very unfortunate that Indian academicians are unable or unwilling to an intellectual/philosophical challenge to Islam. Indian Intellectual elites are unable or unwilling to develop a consensus that the Islamic threat is significant.

I wish, pro-Islamist corrupt politicians, leftist academicians, and elite pseudo secular Indian intellectuals read all the passages in the Koran which promote, instigate and motivate Muslims for violence against infidels. So, the duty of the peace loving and patriotic citizens to save India from the supremacist Islamic power, cannot be ignored anyway.

Intellectual policing of Islam and continued dialogue on the philosophy (?) of Mohamed may reduce antagonism and mutual misrepresentation between the close ended Islam and open ended Hinduism.

Intellectual policing of Islam must be an essential part  in the life of Hindu culture.

INDIAN HINDU ROOTS RELIGION IS THE OLDEST & LARGEST RELIGION OF THE WORLD. THEN WHY INDIA IS NOT DECLARED AS A HINDU COUNTRY?

Posted by hinduexistence on December 20, 2012

Declare Bharat as a Hindu Country

Hinduism third (?) largest religion of world: Pew research.

But ‘Indian-Hindu root religion’ is still the largest religion of world if you consider Hindus (15%) + Buddhist (7%) + Other Religions (nearly 1% most of them are Sikhs, Jains etc) +  Religiously Unaffiliated (16% most of them are in China and hide their practicing Buddhist culture due a oppressive Communist Govt & others actually follow the offshoot of Hindu faiths)……… SO THERE IS AT LEAST 35% INDIA ROOTS RELIGIONISTS IN THIS WORLD LARGER THAN 32% CHRISTIANS AND 23% MUSLIMS SO FAR.

Hindu Roots are the largest Religion in the WorldPTI | Washington | Wed Dec 19 2012 :: Hinduism is the third largest religion of the world after Christianity and Islam and 97 per cent of all Hindus live in three Hindu-majority countries : India, Nepal and Mauritius, according to a study.

India, which accounts for majority of world’s Hindus, is also home to almost all the major religions of the world, a Pew research said Tuesday.

Pew demographic study  ‘based on analysis of more than 2,500 censuses, surveys and population registers’  finds 2.2 billion Christians (32 per cent of the world’s population), 1.6 billion Muslims (23 per cent), 1 billion Hindus (15 per cent), nearly 500 million Buddhists (7 per cent) and 14 million Jews (0.2 per cent) around the world as of 2010.

In addition, more than 400 million people (six per cent) practice various folk or traditional religions, including African traditional religions, Chinese folk religions, Native American religions and Australian aboriginal religions.

An estimated 58 million people ‘ slightly less than one per cent of the global population’  belong to other religions, including the Baha’i faith, Jainism, Sikhism, Shintoism, Taoism, Tenrikyo, Wicca and Zoroastrianism, to mention just a few, it said.

Pew said overwhelmingly, Hindus and Christians tend to live in countries where they are in the majority.

Ninety seven per cent of all Hindus live in the world’s three Hindu-majority countries (India, Mauritius and Nepal), and nearly nine-in-ten Christians (87 per cent) are found in the world’s 157 Christian majority countries.

The median age of two major groups ‘Muslims (23 years) and Hindus (26)’ is younger than the median age of the world’s overall population (28), it said adding that all the other groups are older than the global median.

Hindu Existence Post Script: 

Why the 1 (one) billion Hindus of the world have not a single Hindu Country for their own?

If the 32% stake holders Christian has about 30 declared  Christian Countries (157 Christian-majority nations) in this world….

The 23% stake holders Muslims have 57 declared Muslim Countries….

The 7% stake holders Buddhists have 8 Buddhist Countries….

The 0.2% stake holders Jews have 1 Jews Country….

Actually,  ‘India root religion’ is still the largest religion of world if you consider Hindus (15%) + Buddhist (7%) + Other Religions (nearly 1% most of them are Sikhs, Jains etc) + Religiously Unaffiliated (16% most of them are in China and hide their practising Buddhist culture due a oppressive Communist Govt & others actually follow the offshoot of Hindu faiths)……… SO THERE IS AT LEAST 35% INDIAN-HINDU ROOTS RELIGIONISTS IN THIS WORLD LARGER THAN 32% CHRISTIANS AND 23% MUSLIMS SO FAR. As Pew is a Christian affiliated organisation, it addresses the crisis and problems before the Christianity in order to propagate the Christianity in a top place. Within this theoretical module the ‘Indian Roots Religions’ are shown in an easy fragmentation quite unopposed.

The existence Aryavarta-Bharat-Hindusthan-India solely depends upon the Hindu Majority and an establishment of a Hindu Rashtra in Bharat. We have to encounter forceful conversion of Hindus into Islam and Christianity. Until and unless a meaningful Dhramarashtra on the basis of Hindu principles is established here the entity of Hindusthan will be always challenged by the Islam, Christianity, Communism, Consumerism and Corruption. We should compete our vision to make a Hindu Rashtra in Bharat within 2025. Jayatu Jayatu Hindu Rashtram.

Then why 15% Hindus of global population have no rights to have their own Hindu Country? Why the delay of declaring Bharat as a Hindu Rashtra? WHY???

Islamic persecution upon Minorities in Pak : A liar Pakistan wants to wash its dirty linen with an Islamic soap.

Posted by hinduexistence on October 6, 2012

A liar Pakistan wants to wash its dirty linen with an Islamic soap.

Police, Hindu community give contradicting statements over minority persecution.

By Hafeez Tunio | The Express Tribune | October 5, 2012 ::

KARACHI: The police and representatives of the Hindu community gave contradicting statements over the issue of minority persecution in Pakistan during a meeting of the National Assembly’s Standing Committee on Human Rights held on Friday.

During the meeting presided over by Committee Chairman Riaz Fatyana, the police maintained that minorities in Pakistan get equal rights and there was no Hindu migration from Sindh, while representatives from the Hindu community thought otherwise.

Additional Inspector-General (AIG) Falak Khursheed said, “Pakistan is a country where every citizen reserves the right to live his life the way he wants. Minorities especially Hindus girls are never pressurised to accept Islam or to convert their religion.”

He said that only three families had migrated to India while 200-300 other people had gone for a pilgrimage to their holy places this year.

On the other hand, minority MNA Dr Araish Kumar from Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa said that the AIG was misguiding the committee by presenting wrong figures. He said that around 12 cases of forced conversions were reported in Tando Allahyar in past one month, while 7,000 Hindus had migrated to India in the past three years.

Mangla Sharma from Pakistan Hindu Council said that over 0.1 million Hindus from Sindh have migrated to India. She reiterated that the government has avoided providing 5% quota of jobs at government departments to minorities.

After a long discussion, the committee recommended that district-level special cells, with representatives from police, home department, civil society and Hindu community, be established to protect minority rights.

The committee further advised the Sindh government to lodge cases under the “Anti Terrorism Act” against those who attack temples and other worship places for minorities in Pakistan, and directed the home department and the provincial government to set up “safe houses” where kidnapped girls can be kept for around one month before being moved to any court.

The officials of the law department were also directed to prepare a draft on Hindu Personal Law with the input on Hindu community leaders.

Pakistan Muslim League – Quaid (PML-Q) MNA Dr Attiya Inayatullah, Chairman Pakistan Sikh Council Sardar Ramesh Singh and officials of law and home departments also expressed their views on the issue during the meeting. [eCourtesy: The Express Tribune, Pakistan].

Hindu Existence wants to know the fact about Hindus in Pakistan from the Pak authorities: 

How the 16% Hindus in Pakistan in 1947 came down to 1.86% at present?

Is this Report of Persecution and Discrimination against Hindus prepared by  Sustainable Development Policy Institute (SDPI), Islamabad, a fake one?

What does this Video footage of IBN-CNN tell?

And this version of NDTV?

Actually Pakistani is a liar state. They are killing Hindus as per Quranic dictum to “Kill all the Kaffirs”. And sometimes they take help of  ‘al taqiyya’ (religious pretending) in the shape of rising the points of ‘Minority Rights’ etc. Muslims of the world have taken a dangerous policy. Most of them are engaged for ethnic cleansing of Non-Muslims, actively or passively. Some of them are coming with pro-minority stand to suppress the cruelty of Islam and make a humanitarian face of a deadly religion of Islam. Islam is a optimum threat to the existence of all Non-Muslims. Pakistan is not an exception of that. A liar Pakistan wants to wash its dirty linen with an Islamic soap. ~ Upananda Brahmachari.

Rise of Hinduism in USA. Is a Hindu USA upcoming?

Posted by hinduexistence on September 14, 2012

Rise of Hinduism in USA

Pew Report Highlights Rise of Hinduism in U.S.

An article by Sunita Sohrabji | Republished from the source INDIAWEST.

A majority of Indian Americans identify as Hindus, concluded a Pew report released last week. Seen above are deities at a San Francisco Bay area-based Hindu temple.

United States. One in 10 Asian Americans identify themselves as Hindus, concluded the results of a report on Asian Americans and their religious affiliations, released July 19 by the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life.

Hindus and Buddhists counted together represent two percent of the overall population, the same share as Jews.

Ninety percent of Hindu Americans believe there is more than one way to interpret the tenets of their faith, and the majority celebrate both Hindu holidays like Diwali as well as Christmas, noted the report, titled: “Asian Americans: A Mosaic of Faiths.” The report lacked much novel information, and re-stated largely-held beliefs about Indian Americans and their religious practices.

Most Asian American Buddhists and Hindus maintain traditional religious beliefs and practices. Two-thirds of Buddhists surveyed believe in ancestral spirits, while three-quarters of Hindus keep a shrine in their home, concluded the report, adding however that 30 percent of the Hindus surveyed and 20 percent of Buddhists report having attended religious services of another faith, outside of special occasions such as weddings or funerals.

U.S. Buddhists and Hindus tend to be inclusive in their understanding of faith. Most Buddhists and Hindus, for instance, reject the notion that their religion is the one true faith and say instead that many religions can lead to eternal life, or in the case of Buddhists, to enlightenment, noted the survey.

The 182-page report focused on the four major religious groups of Asian Americans: Christians, Buddhists, Hindus and the religiously unaffiliated. Muslims compromise an additional four percent of Asian Americans, but their numbers in the survey were too small to include in the analysis, said an introduction to the report.

Some Current Hindu News from USA.

A pie chart of Indian American faiths included with the report showed that 51 percent of Indian Americans identify as Hindus, 10 percent are Muslim, five percent are Sikhs and two percent are Jain.

Eighteen percent of Indian Americans identify as Christian, though only about three percent of India’s total population is estimated to be Christian. The higher percentages of Indian American Christians may reflect immigration patterns or switching of religions.

Ten percent of Indian Americans are unaffiliated with any religion, according to the pie chart, which did not include a slice for other affiliations, such as Parsis or Jews, whose combined numbers represent less than one percent of the Indian American population.

About one-third of Hindu Americans say that religion is important in their lives, in sharp contrast to the overall U.S. population where religion plays a large role in the lives of 58 percent of those surveyed.

The report also notes that Asian Americans tend to pray less than the overall population, but adds that Asians regard prayer differently than other groups.

“The ritual recitation of mantras in both Buddhism and Hinduism is not the same as prayer to a personal God in the Christian tradition, and this difference may help explain why a smaller number of Asian American Buddhists and Hindus than Asian American Christians report that they pray daily. And although attendance at religious services is higher among U.S. Asian Christians than among U.S. Asian Buddhists and Hindus, many of the Buddhists and Hindus – about 78 percent – report that they maintain religious shrines in their homes.

Nearly three-quarters of Hindu Americans see yoga not just as exercise but also as a spiritual practice. More than half of U.S. Hindus said they believe in reincarnation and moksha, defined in the survey as “the ultimate state transcending pain and desire in which individual consciousness ends.”

Also, about half also believe in astrology defined in the survey as the belief “that the position of the stars and planets can affect people’s lives,” but fewer believe in spiritual energy in physical things or in ancestral spirits.

Interestingly, 24 percent of Hindus say they meditate daily, while only 17 percent of Buddhists – with whom the practice is more commonly affiliated – say they regularly meditate.

“As their numbers rise, Asian Americans are contributing to the diversity of the U.S. religious landscape. From less than one percent of the total U.S. population — including children — in 1965, Asian Americans have increased to 5.8 percent or 18.2 million children and adults in 2011, according to the U.S. Census,” said the Pew researchers in an overview of the report.

“In the process, they have been largely responsible for the growth of non-Abrahamic faiths in the United States, particularly Buddhism and Hinduism,” noted the report, which can be viewed in its entirety at pewforum.org.

Police and Islamist jointly tortured Hindus in Magrahat, West Bengal.

Posted by hinduexistence on May 2, 2012

“West Bengal : Hindu-Muslim clashes rock Mograhat”

Or

Changed Reality rocks Magrahat Hindus to put into Jail.

“<Strong Hindu defense foils Islamists’ plan to persecute Hindus en masse 

Mograhat (West Bengal): As fresh reports are coming in, the fair in village: Kamarpukur, P.S. Mograhat, District: 24 Paraganas (South), has been rocked by a series of Hindu-Muslim clashes, starting from evening of November 29, 2012 thus far.

In accordance with sources, problem erupted when an Islamist wanted to give a fake Indian currency note to a Hindu shopkeeper; he refused to accept it leading to a scuffle between the two. The situation would have ended there if the Islamist returned with more of his fellows to teach the Hindu shopkeeper a lesson. The pack of Islamists torched the entire shop and whoever tried to oppose them was beaten outrageously.

Hindu shopkeeper cried for help desperately; Hindu youths in the vicinity, acquainted with such postures of Islamists day in and day out, built up a strong defence and in no time smashed a few shops of Islamists forming the said pack.

This incident sparked off another set of troubles. Hundreds of Islamists turned up in the venue soon started vicious attacks on Hindus soon. However, unlike other times, Hindus did not withdraw to their houses and were found to implement countermeasures as well. And rule of administration became the greatest casualty as a result.

A number of police contingents along with SDPO rushed to the spot (on the very night) to rein in the situation.

RAF has been deployed to maintain a vigil in the area and tension continues to grip the area.

More details are being awaited.

Source : Hindu Samhati>” as published in Hindu Janajagruti Site.

Reality differs from above as the Hindus in the areas lastly faced joint attack of RAF and Police with the help of Political goons obviously Muslims. Two Hindus injured ghastly. One Hindu boy separated/not traced yet.

Know the reality of Magrahat. 

Mograhat Update: Pro-Islamist standpoint of administration thwarts peace meeting in Mograhat.

Abhed Acharya from Magrahat [1st May, 2001]: I was then within 20 km from the place of occurrence at the sporadic time of clash started after 7 pm afresh on 29th of April (2012). Frequent phone calls were reaching to a number of a reliable person whom the sufferers believe as a protector in crisis. The man with a subtle skill and calmness was giving important instructions to his men in Magrahat and also reporting the matter to the Police and administration from another phone number. He also preparing arrangements with an advocate to move bail as RAF already arrested some Hindu men from the area of Kamarpukuria.

At the meeting point of three villages of Haludberia, Kamarpuria and Kadamanuraj there is a religious pond named Kaipukur Where an annual Hindu Mela (congregation) held every year on and from Akshay Trithiya in the name of Mata Manasa in front her Temple/Vedi.  The mela is gradually growing its shape with the participation of nearby villagers for the last three/four years. Muslim operators have been trying to take control over the Mela for last two years, but the local Hindu young generation kept the control in a manageable way.

This year some fake notes of Rs.100/- denominations were recovered in the Mela but the culprits were not detected. On 28th April a fake note of Rs 500/- was detected on spot when a Muslim boy tried to make payment to a Hindu shop keeper. A tiny scuffle turned a big discord all on a sudden when the manhandled Muslim boy attacked the Hindu village Kamarpukuria with a greater Muslim force came from Bankipur, Mamudpur and Magrahat Market area plan fully. Yes, Hindus resisted heroically with their limited strength, but they were victimized under heavy bomb charges from Muslims. Muslims attacked with sharp chopper and three Hindu boys injured seriously. As, no Hindu Organization in Bengal does not believe in armed resistance to an armed attack, the follower of all the Hindu organization usually fallen victim as their leaders tell them an impossible mass awakening and not to be in the fray of the ruling political force.

Getting stern resistance from the Hindus, the Muslim attackers took refuge of Political Strength of ruling Trinmool Congress (TMC) and immediately they put diary against Hindu villagers. Getting the diary from the Muslims and obviously under the pressure from the Muslim appeaser TMC, RAF entered the troubled area and tortured the Hindu villagers. In this dispersed moments the Hindus could not put any diary against Muslim attackers from outside. Within this span of time the news reached to a Hindu Organization only busy then to prepare a report to be posted in their internet site. Nobody from the organization gave any advice to make a general diary to the local police station or to admit the injured persons in the nearby Govt. Hospitals to be treated there to procure injury reports from the authority to produce it in Court cases etc.

I was hearing the appeal from local BJP leader named Ratan Sardar of Magrahat to make arrangements for bail for some Rabin, Ranjit and Prasenjit of Kamarpukur and Two others from Maititrhat and one from Atasura. So far 11(eleven) persons are arrested and put in judicial custody till 15.05.2012. Police is searching other 6 (six) accused upon false allegations.  On 15.05.2012 the case will be moved for bail. No Muslims are arrested yet, not a single Muslim was admitted so far in any Hospital or Nursing Home being injured in the clash save and except the boy injured on 28.04.2012 after caught with fake note.

It is noteworthy that some leaders of different Hindu Organizations are also giving advice not to go against TMC and one perpetrator Akhtar Gazi of the area is now acting as an agent of the Islamist to calm down the Hindu retaliation so that it may not turn virulent.

The most injured Hindu man Tapas Mondal was threatened by the Islamists perhaps escaped in a safer place and his father Manik Ch Mondal is still searching his son here and there.

I came to know that the Muslim population of Magrahat Block has been increased by 40% in just last twenty years. And the Hindus came down to 47% in 2001 from 87% in 1981. The situation of Hindus in Magrahat (West Bengal, India) is not better than any vicinity of Pakistan.

But, the most alarming thing to me from this current happening is that (i) The Hindu organizations in Bengal is less interested in field actions but prefer reactions in Internet. (ii) There is no co-ordination between various Hindu Organizations in Bengal. Everybody wants to be the Big Boss. (iii) The freaky Hindu leaders dream a change through an absurd Mass Awakening without any armed resistance to the well equipped Jihadists. (iv) Now the Hindu leaders in Bengal are will convinced by State BJP, not to oppose TMC, as there is a chance of alliance of NDA in 2014 General Election. So bear all the Muslim torture with tight lip. This idiotic calculation will turn the Bengal as a Total Muslim Change. These calculation helped TMC to sit on power and kick out Hindus now & (v) Unfortunately, Bengali Hindu leaders are envious each other shamelessly.

The tendencies to grab the Hindu Credits for own organization with doing nothing is another disease in Bengal in Hindu Organizational methodology.

God knows who will save Bengal?

Grim fate of Hindu minorities in Pakistan: Hindu Girls Abducted and Forced into Muslim Marriages. Who Cares?

Posted by hinduexistence on March 2, 2012

PAKISTAN: Abducted and forced into a Muslim marriage – IRIN Report.

KARACHI, 27 February 2012 (IRIN - Integrated Regional Information Networks) – Sixteen-year-old Ameena Ahmed*, now living in the town of Rahim Yar Khan in Pakistan’s Punjab Province, does not always respond when her mother-in-law calls out to her.

“Even after a year of `marriage’ I am not used to my new name. I was called Radha before,” she told IRIN on a rare occasion when she was allowed to go to the corner shop on her own to buy vegetables.

Ameena, or Radha as she still calls herself, was abducted from Karachi about 13 months ago by a group of young men who offered her ice-cream and a ride in their car. Before she knew what was happening, she was dragged into a larger van, and driven to an area she did not know.

She was then pressured into signing forms which she later found meant she was married to Ahmed Salim, 25; she was converted to a Muslim after being asked to recite some verses in front of a cleric. She was obliged to wear a veil. Seven months ago, Ameena, who has not seen her parents or three siblings since then and “misses them a lot”, moved with her new family to southern Punjab.

“The abduction and kidnapping of Hindu girls is becoming more and more common,” Amarnath Motumal, a lawyer and leader of Karachi’s Hindu community, told IRIN. “This trend has been growing over the past four or five years, and it is getting worse day by day.”

He said there were at least 15-20 forced abductions and conversions of young girls from Karachi each month, mainly from the multi-ethnic Lyari area. The fact that more and more people were moving to Karachi from the interior of Sindh Province added to the dangers, as there were now more Hindus in Karachi, he said.

“They come to search for better schooling, for work and to escape growing extremism,” said Motumal who believes Muslim religious schools are involved in the conversion business.

“Hindus are non-believers. They believe in many gods, not one, and are heretics. So they should be converted,” said Abdul Mannan, 20, a Muslim student. He said he would be willing to marry a Hindu girl, if asked to by his teachers, “because conversions brought big rewards from Allah [God]. But later I will marry a `real’ Muslim girl as my second wife,” he said.

According to local law, a Muslim man can take more than one wife, but rights activists argue that the law infringes the rights of women and needs to be altered.

Motumal says Hindu organizations are concerned only with the “forced conversion” of girls under 18. “Adult women are of course free to choose,” he said.

“Lured away”

Sunil Sushmt, 40, who lives in a village close to the city of Mirpurkhas in central Sindh Province, said his 14-year-old daughter was “lured away” by an older neighbour and, her parents believe, forcibly converted after marriage to a Muslim. “She was a child. What choice did she have?” her father asked. He said her mother still cries for her “almost daily” a year after the event.

Sushmat is also concerned about how his daughter is being treated. “We know many converts are treated like slaves, not wives,” he said.

According to official figures, Hindus based mainly in Sindh make up 2 percent of Pakistan’s total population of 165 million. “We believe this figure could be higher,” Motumal said.

According to media reports, a growing number of Hindus have been fleeing Pakistan, mainly for neighbouring India. The kidnapping of girls and other forms of persecution is a factor in this, according to those who have decided not to stay in the country any longer.

“My family has lived in Sindh for generations,” Parvati Devi, 70, told IRIN. “But now I worry for the future of my granddaughters and their children. Maybe we too should leave,” she said. “The entire family is seriously considering this.”

Tribal Rights & Culture Must be Protected – Dr Pravin Togadia, International Working President – VHP.

Posted by hinduexistence on March 1, 2012

Welcome. Back to Hindu Fold. Over Tribal 658 families, 3127 total people, 1513 men & 1614 women from 102 Tribal villages returned to Hindu Dharma from meaningless Christianity. 

Tribal Rights & Culture Must be Protected - Dr Pravin Togadia

Sundergadh, Odisha; February 23, 2012 || Updated: 01-03-2012.

A glorious event of over Tribal 658 families, 3127 total people, 1513 men & 1614 women from 102 Tribal villages coming back to their ancestors’ religious traditions giving up the forced Christianity. In a grand event organized by VHP in the jungles of Sundergadh in Odisha, there were festival like celebrations by 102 Tribal villages. The happy occasion was presided over by VHP International Working President Dr Pravin Togadia.

While thanking the 102 villages & all the Tribals who returned to their ancestors’ religious traditions by choice & with joy, Dr Togadia said, “Tribals are the roots of Bharat. They are the custodians of our age old rich traditions & culture. We all must do everything to protect them & their rights. Govt has extended the reservations to Christians meant only for Hindu Tribals. Many Christians are already availing of the quota meant for the poor Tribals depriving the poor tribals of their right to education, jobs, loans, lands etc. This should immediately stop & all convert or any Christians should be immediately de-listed from the reservations meant for the Tribals. Those who convert to Christianity from Scheduled Castes are not given the benefits of SC reservations. Following the same pattern, the Tribals who convert to Christianity should be de-listed from the Tribal reservations.”

“In 1975, there was a bill for amending the constitution to this regard was brought in by Shri Kartik Urav who himself was a Tribal from Odisha. 300 Member of Parliament had signed the bill agreeing that the Tribals who converted to Christianity should be de-listed from the reservations. The amendment was about to be passed but got shelved for unknown reasons. It should be brought back again & be passed immediately. “

“Rangnath Mishra commission has now recommended that all Christians & Muslims who stayed in Tribal areas & regions before 1947 should be treated as Tribals & be given all Tribal reservations. This will further snatch education, employment, loans, lands & therefore livelihood of the original poor Tribals who did not disregard their ancestors’ traditions & stayed loyal to the roots despite great difficulties. Therefore, this draconian recommendation by Rangnath Mishra Commission should never be accepted & the entire Rangnath Mishra report itself.

Should be rejected as it snatched roti, education, employment, land, loans, businesses & trades of all castes of Hindus & Tribals.”

Dr Togadia appealed to all to support activities that educate, empower & enable Tribals to prosper & come up in life while protecting their glorious traditions. VHP is already running over 40,000 schools, residential schools- colleges for tribal girls & boys in tribal areas all over Bharat & now many bright students studied there are doctors, top govt officers & successful scientists in Bharat & abroad.

VHP also has over 1000 medical facilities including hospitals, ambulances, blood banks & primary health care centres for Tribals in their own areas for quick medical help. There are Self Help centres & vocational guidance units where women & youth are groomed for the traded that are close to their life styles giving them better income & bright future.

Dr Togadia said, “Support from the world & from Bharat from those who care for the well-being of the Tribals in all fields will gain further momentum that will immensely benefit the Tribals & also dissuade them from looking at other religions as an option.”

Quetta’s (Pakistan) Hindus demand govt to protect them from kidnappers, killers & persecutors.

Posted by hinduexistence on December 25, 2011

Hindu Sit-in outside Baloch Assembly against Hindu trader’s killing, ransom, torture.

QUETTA, 23rd December, 2011 : Members of the Hindu community staged a protest demonstration in front of the Balochistan Assembly (BA) on Friday against increasing incidents of kidnapping for ransom in the province.

The protestors took out a procession from Arya Samaj temple on Masjid Road and after marching through different parts of the city, staged a protest demonstration in front of the BA building.

The protesting people, including children, were carrying placards and banners inscribed with slogans demanding protection from criminals.

Addressing the protestors, Raday Sham and Dr Maher Chand, members of Hindu Panchayat, said police should investigate the killing of young Hindu trader Ravi Kumar, whose bullet-riddled body was found in Quetta after his family failed to pay the ransom money to his abductors.

The members of the Hindu community raised slogans against the government for its failure to protect the life of those belonging to minority communities.

Provincial minister for minorities Basant Lal Gulshan and Minister for Revenue Zamurkh Khan Achakzai addressed the protesting Hindu community members and tried to pacify them.

Achakzai said that the law enforcing agencies were constantly striving against the kidnapping gangs operating in Quetta and other parts of the province.

“Police have booked many suspects and also carrying out raids in different localities including Saryab and Pashtunabad areas of Quetta. Soon, the criminals will be brought to book,” he ensured.

The protestors called off their protest after the provincial minster assured them that he will arrange a meeting between a delegation of Hindu community and Chief Minister, to resolve the issues.

Continuous Genocides of Hindu Tamils in a fatal Sinhala slaughter house in Sri Lanka.

Posted by hinduexistence on August 25, 2011

  • It is estimated that 2500 Hindu temples and 400 churches have been destroyed. The Sinhala forces do not permit the people to reconstruct these worship places and many are in a dilapidated state.
  • Military camps and Sinhala soldiers are a common sight in Tamil areas. Out of a total land mass of 65,619 sq km, the Tamils inhabited 18,880 sq km of land in the north and east, but after May 2009, the defence forces have occupied more than 7,000 sq km of Tamil land.
  • Tamils , Mostly Hindu Shaivaites underwent severe hardship and sufferings from year 1956, 1958, 1977,1983 GENOCIDE OF TAMILS, 2000, 2001, 2006, 2009 GENOCIDE OF TAMILS MORE THAN 200,000  Killed & Missing. A rich and erudite Tamil Hindu Culture and people are facing severe Ethnic Cleansing in Sri Lanka.
  • Hindus in this planet can’t keep mum for such a persecutions upon them in the KILLING FIELD IN SINHALA (Sri Lanka) even beside the questions over Tamil insurgency and LTTE etc. Human Rights are grossly violated in SL as per amnesty procedures.

Erasing the cultural leftover of Tamils to convert Sri Lanka into Sinhala country

By A Correspondent || The Weeken Leader || Colombo25 Aug 2011.

Travelling through the Tamil areas in North Sri Lanka, one is shocked to see the changing demography of the land. A land that was once inhabited by Tamils and a land that had a distinct flavor of Tamil culture and heritage is now in the grip of Sinhalese hegemony, seen in the form of Buddhist statues, viharas and stupas dotting the landscape that is also lined by broken Tamil homes and newly built shanties of Tamil refugees.

[PIC. A recently constructed Buddhist stupa at Kanagarayankulam.]

Sinhala and Sinhalisation are now the watch words in the predominantly Tamil areas of North Sri Lanka. Starting from Vavuniya, the change is perceptible as one enters the Tamil heartland. 

All those entering into the north have to pass through Omanthai – which has been given a Sinhalese sounding name, ‘Omantha’ – check point on A9 national highway. At this place where more than 90 per cent of the travelers are Tamil speakers, one needs to go with a person knowing Sinhala to answer the queries from the Sinhalese soldiers.

Throughout our travel into the Tamil hinterland, we could sense an air of Sinhalese triumphalism.

Military camps and Sinhala soldiers are a common sight in Tamil areas. Out of a total land mass of 65,619 sq km, the Tamils inhabited 18,880 sq km of land in the north and east, but after May 2009, the defence forces have occupied more than 7,000 sq km of Tamil land.

It is estimated that 2500 temples and 400 churches have been destroyed. The Sinhala forces do not permit the people to reconstruct these worship places and many are in a dilapidated state.

On the other hand, even though the only Buddhists who are to be found here are the Sinhalese soldiers, nearly 2500 Buddhist stupas and statues have come up in Tamil areas in the last couple of years, according to the locals.

[PIC. A huge Buddha statue at Kilinochchi, the erstwhile capital of Tamil rebels.]

 

A Buddhist Vihara named Mahatota Raja Maha Vihara has come up within 50 meters of the famous Thirukethiswaram temple in Mannar district. The ancient name for Thirukethiswaram area was Mahathottam.

The government has been making a big hype about a so-called development programme in Tamil areas called Vadakin Vasantham (Uthuru Wasanthaya or Northern Springs).

Infrastructure development, electricity, water supply and sanitation, agriculture, irrigation, livestock development, inland fisheries, health, solid waste disposal, education, sports, cultural affairs and transportation are some of the areas that they claim will be covered under this program.

However, the real beneficiaries of this scheme are not going to be Tamils but Sinhala jobless youth, who would be employed in the projects that have been handed to Sinhala contractors.

The defence forces will be the ones who will be utilizing the newly developed infrastructure as a major chunk of the funds will be allocated towards road development to facilitate easy troop movement.

[PIC. A Sinhala-only signboard at an important junction in Puthukudyiruppu.]

 

In Cheddikulam a housing scheme for Sinhala returnees is underway. One would have welcomed it if it was the same 13 displaced families that were to return. Instead, some 75 new Sinhala families are being relocated in the area.

Already 165 Sinhala families have been resettled in Kokkachchaankulam, which is to be renamed Kalabowasewa.

A grand new Sinhala medium school for new returnees has come up on Madhu road, whereas hundreds of schools for Tamil kids in the vicinity are in a state of disarray.

According to locals, forest wealth in the Tamil areas is looted by the Sinhalese from the south who enter the forest with permission of the armed forces for timber logging.

People also complain that Sinhala Buddhist archaeologists are engaged in nefarious activities of Sinhalization. They are said to be visiting Tamil areas and ‘excavating’ Buddha statues that they themselves plant earlier. The purpose of this exercise is allegedly to claim that the territory in question had been a Sinhala Buddhist area.

Where there were only a few old Sinhala sign boards pointing directions and mentioning names of places, today one is dumbstruck at the sheer number of new Sinhala name/direction boards in the Tamil areas.

[PIC. A Sri Lankan defence outpost in Puthukudyiruppu  with name board in Sinhalese and English.]

 

In Mullaithivu and many other places in the north, Tamils are not allowed to enter the sea, while their Sinhala counterparts from the south are allowed to fish in their areas.

Locals say that all petitions to government services and establishments have to be given in Sinhala only since 2009.

In the heart of Kilinochchi town, the erstwhile administrative capital of Tamil rebels, streets sport Sinhalese names such as Mahinda Rajapaksa Mawatha, and Aluth mawatte (The new road).

Three roads close to the A9 highway in Kanakarayankulam have been given Sinhala names – Kosala Perera road, Anura Perera road, and Rev Yatiravana Vimala Thero Street. The first two names are those of soldiers who took part in the war and the last one is the name of a Buddhist monk.

Where will this all lead to? Only time will tell. ???

HINDU EXISTENCE BELIEVES IN A STRONG HINDU-BUDDHIST, TAMIL-SINHALA UNITY TO FIGHT AGAINST MUSLIM-CHRISTIAN CONSPIRACY TO DIVIDE AND ELIMINATE US FROM THIS PLANET IN A SCENARIO OF OUR GREAT CULTURAL COHESION AND APPREHENSIVE STRENGTH AS WORLD POWER.

Bangladeshi Hindus and other minorities denounced the Islamic Constitution.

Posted by hinduexistence on July 1, 2011

 

Big protest in Bangladesh against Islamic Constitution

Sambuddha Gupta | Dhaka | June 30, 2011.

Dhaka stirs with Big Protests. Thousands of protesters marched in capital Dhaka on Thursday against Bangladesh parliament adopted an Islamic constitution, steering away from a secular political culture, which was enshrined in 1972 constitution.

A half a mile long rally organized by a conglomerate of Hindu and other ethnic groups, left parties and pro-secular groups, chanting anti-government slogans and waving red flags marched towards the parliament, where the ruling party and her alliance lawmakers hastily adopted several amendments to the constitution on Thursday noon.

……………………………
Hindus and other religious minorities in Bangladesh clearly slammed the approval of the 15th constitutional amendment bill to retain Islam as the state religion as it was against the secular character of the constitution granted and accepted by the new born Bangladesh Republic in 1972. Quashing that National spirit of equality and secularism, Bangladesh’s Parliament approved the 15th Amendment Bill 2011 recently that scraps the controversial nonpartisan caretaker system to conduct general elections and also retains Islam as the state religion. The free thinkers society and a small section in Muslim Community consiting eminent scholars, writers, human rightists also raised their humble voice in the cause of retention of the Secular Constitution of Bangladesh as it was adopted in 1972.
………..
Rana Dasgupta, General Secretary of Hindu Boudhha Christian Oikya Parishad (HBCOP), a key organisation of religious minorities in Bangladesh, said the entire nation wanted the restoration of the spirit of secularism.”We are deeply disappointed…this has violated our fundamental rights and that is why we are rejecting the amendment,” Dasgupta told the news agency PTI. The HBCOP claimed that it deprived the country’s nearly 2.5 crore religious and ethnic minorities from their rights of Hinduism and other religious beliefs. Amongst them, Hindus are the second largest religious affiliation in Bangladesh. There are over 150 million Hindus in the country, according to the 2001 census. Dasgupta said that the HBCOP, headed by former army general CR Datta (Veer Uttam), has called a nationwide day-long hunger strike on Friday on 1st July.
………………..
The organisation would also stage a black flag protest in front of the National Press Club in the heart of the capital tomorrow. Dasgupta said.”We fear that the development has pushed us to a situation where the followers of different religious faiths will abstain from casting their votes in next elections or wage a campaign demanding separate election in reserve seats..”  He said. “Bangladesh’s 1972 constitution contained four state principles, including secularism that was scrapped under the government of military ruler Ziaur Rahman. Former military ruler Hussain Muhammad Ershad declared Islam the state religion in 1988 by amending the constitution. Currently HM Ershad the chief of Jatiya Party which is aligned with the Awami League-led ruling coalition Government in Bangladesh, is again playing his vital role to retain his Islamic amendments in the present 15th amendment in constitution to abolish the basic principles of original constitution”.

The irritations and the agitations in BD minority groups has no impact perhaps in theCultural Citadel of Asia at Kolkata due to an inertia of Bengal Intellects absorbed with pity secularism equates there not to speak anything about Islamic nuisance and a great PM of Bangladesh, Sheikh Hassina. However, Basudev Dhar, Dhaka correspondent of Dainik Statesman, a flourishing Bengali Daily published from Kolkata regularly reports the persecutions upon the BD minorities and Hindus by the majority Muslims as a most regular feature there.
……………….
The onslaught upon the BD Hindus and other minorities are so reckoning, this may be presented in a form of social appeal and deputation to the all Indian High Commissionand embassies including the United Nation forums, so the rights of minorities in Bangladesh cannot be tampered any more. The status of BD minorities are now clearly in  a level of existential threat facing a process of ethnic cleansing now so promoted  through the softness of constitution amendments with a ensuing hard dome of complete Talibalization of Bangladesh.
…………………..
And there is a very little difference between Ziaur Rahman, Hussain Muhammad Ershad, Khaleda Zia and Sheikh Hassina in the question to accept Islam as a State religion of Bangladesh. They are all pro Islamic and the majority of Muslim people can never be a liberal society to accept the practices of others in open mind in its habit, homes and state politics. Bangladesh is telling this truth once again.

Way out for the major declining of Hindu population in India

Posted by hinduexistence on May 20, 2011

(Indian) Hindu population set to fall below 80% in Census 2011

Census 2011 is likely to throw up a psychologically important figure on India’s religious demographics. For the first time in over a century, the proportion of the Hindu population in the country will probably fall below the 80 percent mark — in keeping with the long-term trend of a significant divergence between Hindu and Muslim growth rates.

Demographers like Ashish Bose and SC Gulati have varying viewpoints on the subject. While Bose believes that “it is quite likely that the proportion will be below 80% in 2011”, Gulati says that “A secular trend cannot be predicted for religions based on past data”. The latter view is also backed by another Economic & Political Weekly (EPW) research paper “Hindu-Muslim Fertility Differentials”, which says: “It is true that a Hindu-Muslim differential in fertility persists in India’s demographic reality, but it is no more than one child. It is also not too large to swamp India’s Hindu majority in the foreseeable future. Nor is the gap likely to persist for a very long time as we find that the fertility level among Muslims declines with increasing level of education and standards of living. The faster increase in family planning among Muslims supports this conjecture”.

In a country where Hinduism is the majority religion, it is a unique trend that the proportion of Hindus has shown a secular decline since 1961, matched by a corresponding increase in the proportion of Muslims. While religion is a contentious issue to analyse at any point in time, it is equally imperative to analyse trends deeply enough to understand its socio-economic ramifications. 

Firstpost is raising this issue not to pander to any scare-mongering among Hindus, but because it needs to be understood in the right context. As we await the Census 2011 results on religious demographics, we undertook an analysis of this trend and what it means for the future. Our detailed analysis indicates that while the population of Muslims is indeed growing faster than Hindus, this is only partly due to higher birth rates among them; Hindus, on the other had, also carry a responsibility for the trend in the form of lower longevity, as well as widespread prevalence of gender discrimination and higher mortality among children.

Explaining the trend
The proportion of Hindus has in the population shrunk from 83.4 percent in 1961 to 80.5 percent according to the 2001 census. This trend matches with an almost equivalent proportional rise among the Muslims — from 10.7 percent to 13.4 percent from 1961 to 2001 (and for this reason we also restrict our study to a comparative analysis between these two religions). A declining proportion of Hindus means either that the growth of Hindus is declining or that of other communities is rising. Or, as in this case, a combination of both. Decadal growth in the Hindu population has fallen to 19.3% compared with 23.8% in 1961, as per our estimates based on data from the National Minorities Commission and the Census of India 2001. In comparison, the growth in the Muslim population accelerated from 30.6% in 1961 to 34.6% in 2001. (Figures for religious demography in 2011 are yet to be made available).

For a country that has been battling the population problem for decades, while a decline in the proportion of Hindus has been flagged as a source of concern by religious organisations, to others it actually indicates social progression. It is seen as socially progressive since population growth depends on factors like fertility rates and birth rates.  These, in turn, are influenced by social factors like literacy, in general, and female literacy, in particular, awareness about contraception methods, average age of marriage and the proportion of working women. Lower fertility and birth rates then are pointers to the development of societies as such.

The social factors
On some metrics, Hindus do perform better. According to estimates published in an EPW research paper on “District level fertility estimates for Hindus and Muslims”  in 2005, Crude Birth Rates (CBR, as defined by number of births per 1,000 persons) for Muslims are a much higher at 30.8 as compared with the Hindu number of 24.9 and the all-India average of 25.9. This is also mirrored in a higher Muslim Total Fertility Rate (TFR, as defined by the number of children that would be born to a woman if she were to live to the end of her child-bearing years) of 4.1 as compared with 3.1 for Hindus and 3.2 for all India.

It is hard to overlook the fact that trends in birth rates and fertility rates are seen as commensurate with the expected trends for literacy, use of contraception and workforce participation, despite the differences in methodology of estimation and sources.

Hindu women have slightly higher literacy rates than Muslim women at 53.2 percent and 50.1 percent, respectively as per Census 2001, which has been considered as compared with Census 2011 to keep time periods comparable. Moreover, the last National Family Health Survey (NFHS) in 2005-06 found that while 57.8 percent of Hindus were using contraception, the figure was  much lower at 45.7 percent among the Muslims — suggesting, at least in part, a greater awareness about use of family planning among the Hindus.  We also observe a higher proportion for working women among the Hindus — at 27.5 percent, this is higher than even the all-India average of 25.6 percent, with the Jains, Muslims and Sikhs accounting for a lower than average proportion.
However, this is only half the story told.

The other side
True, the Hindu population growth has declined because of some social progression. However, Hindus also show dismal performance when it comes to other crucial social attributes, namely, focus on healthcare and gender bias.  According to a study by the International Institute for Population Sciences, “Inequality in Human Development by Social and Economic Groups in India”, the life expectancy at birth for Hindus in 2005-06 was 65 years while it was higher at 68 years among Muslims. There is, of course, an element of economic prosperity here as well, with the gap between life expectancy for “poor” Hindus and Muslims being wider than that for the “non-poor” in the two communities.  The overall point, however, remains, that at birth a Muslim has a chance of living longer than a Hindu.

This is clearly related to the fact that in childhood itself a higher proportion of Hindus die. Hindus have an infant mortality rate of 58.5, while the same rate among the Muslims is at 52.4, according to the National Family Health Survey (2005-06), where the infant mortality rate is defined as the probability of dying before the first birthday. Similarly, under-5 mortality is at a high of 76 compared with 70 for Muslims. This fact is also echoed in a research paper by the University of Bristol on “Religion and Childhood Death in India”, which says “Muslim children in India face substantially lower mortality risks than Hindu children. This is surprising because one would have expected just the opposite: Muslims have, on average, lower socio-economic status, higher fertility, shorter birth-spacing, and are a minority group in India that may be expected to live in areas that have relatively poor public provision.”

While it remains to be conclusively proved whether Muslims as such provide better healthcare, it has been pointed out that gender bias is one explanation for this trend. According to a 2004 research paper on “Religion and Fertility in India: The role of son preference and daughter aversion” by researchers at University of Ulster and University of Cambridge, “Muslim fertility in India may be higher than Hindu fertility, but we argue that an important, albeit neglected, issue is not that Muslims have more children than Hindus, but that they treat them better on account of significantly lower levels of daughter aversion.”

As per their estimates, male infant mortality rates (where infant mortality rate is defined as the number of infant deaths as a proportion of live births) among Hindus and Muslims are at 4.5 percent and 4.7 percent, respectively, but the difference in female infant mortality rates is much higher, with the rate among Hindus at 6.3 percent and that among Muslims at 4.6 percent, respectively. The numbers are further corroborated by the fact that Hindus have among the lowest overall sex ratios and child sex ratios in the country as per the Census 2001. The overall sex ratio is higher only than the Sikhs at 931, compared with the Muslims’ sex ratio at 936. The child-sex ratio for Hindus is even worse than Muslims at 925 as compared with 950 for Muslims.  In Census 2011, the overall sex ratio has risen from 933 to 940, but the child-sex ratio has fallen from 927 to 914. The religion-wise breakup will be available only later.

Looking Ahead
So what do these trends mean for the future? That’s tough to say. While for now it might be difficult to know for sure how religious demographics will develop over the coming decades, what is clear is that it looks to be less about one religion’s growth versus the other, and more a reflection of serious demographic issues to be addressed by both.

Is Anti Hinduism is an essential part of Islamic Bangladesh ?

Posted by hinduexistence on March 27, 2011

Anti Hinduism in Bangladesh

Russel Gomez || Hindu Revolution Blog
………………………………………………………………………………………………………..
Anti Hinduism is a common thing is Bangladesh. With a tag of moderate Muslim country by western countries, Bangladeshi Muslims are expert in Hindu bashing. Persecution upon Hindus by the Fundamentalists, vandalization of Hindu temples, rape-molestation-abduction and forceful marriage of Hindu girls, forceful possession of Hindu lands and properties, ignoring rights to Hindus as equal and a perpetuated ethnic cleansing of Hindus in Bangladesh by profound Mullas in Bangladesh have been made a normal business of Muslims with the thwarted Hindus in Bangladesh.
………………………………………………………………………………………………………..
In Bangladesh, the Bangladesh Nationalist Party is regarded as an anti-Hindu party, and reportedly encourages anti-Hindu views and sentiments among the Muslim majority. Prominent political leaders frequently fall back on “Hindu bashing” in an attempt to appeal to extremist sentiment and to stir up communal passions. In one of the most notorious utterances of a mainstream Bangladeshi figure, the then Prime Minister Khaleda Zia while leader of the opposition in 1996, declared that the country was at risk of hearing “uludhhwani” (a Bengali Hindu custom involving women’s ululation) from mosques, replacing the azaan (Muslim call to prayer) (eg, see Agence-France Press report of 18 November 1996, “Bangladesh opposition leader accused of hurting religious sentiment”).
………………………………………………………………………………………………………..
Before the general election of 2001 a former leader of BNP who later became 15th president of   Bangladesh Dr A.Q.M. Badruddoza Chowdhury in an election seminar declared that if Muslims vote BNP they will touch the Quran and if they vote for Awami League they will touch the Gita.
……………………………………………………..
On August 2006,Leaders of the banned Islamist outfit Harkatul Jihad Al Islami (HuJi) established Bangladesh Islamic Democratic Party (IDP)and they threatened if any malauns (a derogatory term for Hindus) drop any blood in Bangladesh they will fly Flag of Islam in Red Fort of Delhi. Banned Islamic party Hizb Ut Tahrir also does the same thing- spreading hate against the Hindus.

Even the supposedly secular Awami League is not immune from this kind of scare-mongering. The present prime minister, Sheikh Hasina, was alleged to have accused Bangladeshi Hindu leaders in New York of having divided loyalties with “one foot in India and one in Bangladesh”. Successive events such as this have contributed to a feeling of tremendous insecurity among the Hindu minority.

The fundamentalists and right-wing parties such as the Bangladesh Nationalist Party and Jatiya Party often portray Hindus as being sympathetic to India, making accusations of  DUAL LOYALTY and allegations of transferring economic resources to India, contributing to a widespread perception that Bangladeshi Hindus are disloyal to the state. Also, the right wing parties claim the Hindus to be backing the Awami League.

The main news papers of Bangladesh do not criticize Islamic treason to Hindu contribution for the freedom of Bangladesh. The papers like  Daily Prothom Alo, Daily Amar Desh, Daily Songram, Daily Naya Digonto, Daily Somokal, Daily Dinkal do not depict the persecution upon Hindus increasing there day by day. The Islamists have a good control over the Bangladesh media for which the matter of ethnic cleansing of BD Hindus are always put behind the curtain. The text books of Bangladesh also openly criticize Hinduism.

Kashmiri Islamists reached West Bengal to grab Hindu land pretending over their poverty. Another ‘al-Taqiyya’.

Posted by hinduexistence on March 8, 2011

500 Kashmiri Muslims want to grab expressway in West Bengal near Dakshineswar Kali Temple.

Kashmiri aggression in Communist Ruling and Pro Change West Bengal. This is one kind of stealthy invasion of Islam in Bengal Soil.

KASHMIRI REFUGEES EKE OUT LIVELIHOOD IN KOLKATA

Sabyasachi Bandopadhyay||Indian Express|| Posted:Sun Mar 06 2011
About 50 Kashmiri families have for the past two months put up tents near Dakshineshwar temple in the northern outskirts of Kolkata. 

A big plot of vacant land at Rajabagan, meant for an Expressway, has become the temporary address for 350 to 400 Kashmiri refugees, most of whom are form Baramulla, Badaun and adjoining areas of the strife-torn Kashmir valley.
The flock comprises mostly tangawalaas and fruit vendors from places like Pahelgam, Patnitop and whose livelihood depends largely on tourism.
The members of the group talking to The Indian Express said that since June last year, strikes, curfews and shut-downs have made it difficult for them to manage two-square meals a day. Hundred of these families first flocked to Jammu station and from there set out for different locations.
“We have found a shelter here,” said Riyaz Ahmed, one of the camp inmates. Riyaz is MA in education from Kashmir university.
“At Dakshineshwar railway station, we saw this abandoned land and decided to set up camps here. The locals are helping us with food and other necessities,” said Rashid Ahmed, 23, who is a graduate.
While West Bengal Chief Secretary Samar Ghosh denied any knowledge of the new group of refugees in the northern outskirts of the city, the additional director general of Intelligence Branch, West Bengal police, Banibrata Basu, said police teams were sent to inquire about them. Their addresses in Kashmir were verified and found to be true. And on humanitarian grounds, they were allowed to stay, said Basu. The open space where Kashmiri refugees have set up camps, belong to the National Highway Authority.
An official of Belghoria police station under which the land falls said: “Initially we objected but when we came to know about their circumstances, we allowed them to stay. They get water from the nearby municipal taps and from Kishore Sangha, a local club. Food is often provided by Gurudwara Singh Sabha of Baranagar, a few NGOs and a few local mosques. The male members of the group earn some money by doing odd jobs like pulling rickshaws and working as daily labourers.
The living conditions are highly unhygienic. “If we fail to get food and lead a peaceful life, we will go back. We will ask our government to make arrangements for us,” said Mohammad Shafaq, another inmate of the camp.
When contacted on phone, Jammu & Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah expressed his ignorance about the refugees. He said he will inquire about it.
Bengal Spotlight comments :
  • This news was published in Bartaman Patrika months before concerning the security of Dakshineshwar Kali Temple as some Kashmiri Terrorist Outfits and Indian Mujaheedin threatened to blast Kalighat and Dakshineshwar Kali Temple. The callous West Bengal Chief Secretary Samar Ghosh and the pretentious Additional Director general of Intelligence Branch, West Bengal police, Banibrata Basu, are now denying the planful occupation of some hidden subversive elements in West Bengal.
  • The non-sense Kishore Sangha and Balle Balle Baranagar Gurudwara Singh Sabha are giving milk to the serpents to spate the venom to us. This is nothing humanitarian. These Kashmiri men pelted stones upon Indian security. These Kashmiri men hacked to death of Rajneesh Sharma, the husband of Anchal Sharma. They drove away 3 lakhs of Kashmiri pandits from Kashmir. They are moreprivileged in Kashmir than anybody under the poverty line in any states of India. They burnt Sikhs and Hindus alive many time before. The President and Prime Minister or any Chief minister or anybody from out of Kashmir do not buy a little piece of land there and we simply considering their suspicious occupation in Bengal ?
  • The ruling CPI(M) and the pro-change TMC both have in their mind to have some more voters if they are given EPIC anyway. Both are not concerned about the demographic change and increase of Islamic fundamentalism in west Bengal. They have only one say to increase the reservation for Muslims as they are the ardent follower of Holy Shariyat instead of Unholy Indian constitution.
  • Hello, Mr Vikram Sen, Director of Census Operations, West Bengal – have you counted these illegal Kashmiri intruders at Dakshineswar along with all Kashmiri Shwalwalla (Shwal sellers) and the unauthorized Kabuliwalla (Afghan money lenders) staying in West Bengal ? We know that you send your men at 00-00 hrs on 1st March to count the street mads, footpath dwellers, etc. But you escaped these Kashmiri invaders for some unknown reasons.

Plight of Pakistani Hindus in an Islamic Country has no limit.

Posted by hinduexistence on February 25, 2011

Pak’s Hindu temples turned into picnic spots, hotels [military barrack , auto repair shop or  public toilets*].

Hindus in Pakistan are watching helplessly as ancient temples turn into ruins due to the apathy of authorities, reports Tahir Ali from Islamabad.

Despite being the second largest ethnic majority in the country, Hindus in Pakistan have been unable to acquire possession of their religious places, agricultural land and other commercial areas. Due to lack of government action, most sacred sites for Hindus are in a dilapidated condition; the rest have been converted into schools, hotels or business centres, [public toilet or military barrack * ].

According to the National Commission for Inter-Religious Dialogue and Ecumenism, Pakistan is home to 3.9 million (39 lakh) [out of total population of 132.35 million *] Hindus. Most members of the minority community belong to impoverished agricultural families.

A report of the Evacuee Trust Property Board (ETBP) reveals that 135,000 acres of land belonging to Hindu farmers is under the control of ETBP , of which 125,000 acres is fertile and suitable for cultivation.

‘Hindus are left behind in every walk of life’

A number of sacred sites, commercial spaces and other properties are also in the possession of ETBP. Ironically, to control Hindu assets and properties, ETPB employs extensive machinery comprising mostly of Muslim workers. Local Hindus have demanded that the ETPB should give them some jobs, as it is reluctant to hand over the possession of their assets.

“The Hindus are left behind in every walk of life. They don’t have possession of their sacred places and other properties. If Hindus were given the possession of their assets, their misery could be alleviated,” Haroon Sayab Diyal,[ if he claims his Hindu roots, unfortunately compelled to take a dubious name like “Haroon”*] chairman of the Pakistan Hindu Rights Movement, told rediff.com.

‘Hindus won’t have to rely on special quotas for jobs’

Haroon Diyal says, “Handing over these properties to the original heirs would also enable the Hindu minority population to stand on its feet. Our youngsters will be able to avail the various educational opportunities. After receiving proper qualifications, they can function as citizens of Pakistan — no one would then have to rely on special quotas for jobs.”

Pakistani Hindus complain that their sacred sites are misused by illegal possessors. In Dera Ismail Khan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, a group has illegally acquired the 700-year-old Kali Bari Mandir and is now using it as a hotel.

‘The temple is used in an unholy way’

According to local Hindus, the occupants of the temple pay only Pakistani Rs 1,600 to the government and earn thousands of rupees per day from the hotel.

Vijay Kumar, a Hindu activist, says, “Due to the hotel’s activities, the temple is used in an unholy way. Though a number of sacred idols are missing from the temple, this historically important site could attract Hindu pilgrims from around the globe.”

Though the Hindu community has taken up this issue a number of times with the government, no action has been taken so far. “In April 2009, after our request to the then governor of KPK Owais Ghani, an inquiry was ordered in the case of the disputed Kali Bari Mandir, but no action was taken about it,” says Diyal.

The issue of Kali Bari is not an isolated example. In Islamabad, Hindus have no access to a temple situated at Saidpur model village.

‘Authorities should hand over the temple’

The Raam Kunday Mandir in Islamabad, once considered a sacred site by Hindus, is being converted into a picnic spot.

“Authorities in the capital should hand this temple over to the Hindus of the country to represent Hinduism in the capital,” says Haroon Diyal.

In Abbottabad city of KPK province, a Hindu temple called Araya Mandir is located next to the local Gurdwara. This temple, which is already in a decrepit condition, is being used as a school for children. Hindus have demanded that they should be granted the possession of the temple and the school should be relocated, as it is endangering the existence of the religious structure.

Temples are in a shambles today

A Jama Masjid is located in the same area and according to Diyal, a renovated temple at the site would present a concrete example of interfaith harmony, with a gurudwara, a mosque and a temple co-existing peacefully.

Members of the Hindu community have also demanded the possession of another temple in Hasan Abdal, but the authorities are yet to pay heed to them.

Eminabad in Gujranwala region has several temples dating back to the 15th century, which are in shambles today. Most of them are being used as stables to provide shelter to donkeys, horses and other animals.

Temple being used by salt miners

A famous Hanuman temple in Chakwal is being used by the workers of salt mines as their office. In spite of local Hindus demanding the possession of this temple, the authorities are allowing the mine workers to use it.

Another Kali temple in Peshawar has been taken over by some local traders, who are converting the temple into a building. Again, the authorities have been apprised of the situation but are yet to take any steps to prevent the violation of this sacred site.

In Punjab’s Bakkar city, Sheeran Wali Mandir has been used by Islamic clerics as a madrasa.

Some temples are on the verge of collapse

According to Diyal, Hindus have no objection to the teaching of Islamic education, but the building is on the verge of collapse as no repair work has been undertaken there.

Similarly, Jogi Tala Jhelum, a sacred site for Hindus as well as Sikhs, is also in a pitiable condition. Hindus have also demanded the possession of Laho Maharaj Mandir, located in Badshahi Masjid, which is currently under the control of ETPB.

Government not ready to take care of temples

Nearly 360 sacred Hindu sites are located in Pakistan, including Hanglaj Maata Mandir in Balochistan, Sadho Beela Mandir in Sindh, Hanuman Mandir in Kotri, Kali Ma and Shiva Mandir in Punjab’s Imanabad, Ganga Khogi in Saidan Shah Punjab, Kali Bari Mandir and Kala Sathi Kewal Raam in Dera Ismail Khan, Raam Takht in Swat and a Shiva Mandir in Mansehra.

But neither is the government ready to ensure the upkeep of these sites, nor is it willing to hand them back to the Hindu community.
