Singham Returns: Vilification of Hindutva and Glorification of Islam.
Boycott ‘Singham Returns’ and punish anti-Hindu rows in Bollywood.
~ Upananda Brahmachari.
HE Media Bureau | Mumbai | July 03, 2014:: In this time of reporting simultaneous protests against the film “Singham Returns” are going on in various corners of India under the leadership of hindu Jana Jagruti Samiti and some other pro-active Hindu organisations. This protests have been started today and will continue till 15th August so that the release of this film can be stopped on its Independence day release.
This film is most degenerating to the Hindus sentiments as a saint like persons has been depicted as a mafia in a very bad light and the hero of this film offers Namaz in a Mazar and salutes it for the glorification of Islam as the trailer of the film uploaded in youtube.
This film “Singham Returns” comes under the banner of Reliance Entertainment of Anil Ambani (whose wife a Muslim Tina Munim) , Ajay Devgn Ffilms and Rohit Shetty Production. The story of this film is written by Sajid-Farhad and screen play is written by Yunus.
In the sequel to Rohit Shetty 2011 blockbuster “Singham”, Ajay Devgan reprises his role as D.C.P. Bajirao Singham, a no-nonsense police officer, while Kareena Kapoor Khan plays the female lead.
Scenes from the upcoming film show a khaki-clad Devgan saluting a Mazar (mausoleum) and many others, in which he is humiliating and insulting a character that depicts an Indian spiritual guru. In his virtual play Bajirao Singham has been appeared here by Gazi Rao Singham.
While many felt Bollywood community as a whole is merely an investment centre for Muslim terrorists like Dawood, some others place the blame on the celebrities who choose money over integrity.This picture, that has now been circulated on the internet, and questions have been raised on why most Bollywood villains are Hindus and if it is part of a larger propaganda that is trying to brainwash viewers away from Hinduism.
Many even targeted acclaimed director, producer and screenwriter Mahesh Bhatt in this whirlwind of speculations, insults and debates.
Back on 2 January 2013, a video titled “Sri Sri Ravi Shankar on Bollywood” was posted on the spiritual guru’s YouTube channel “Art of Living TV,” in which he was asked about his comments on a recent Bollywood film, referring to Akshay Kumar-Paresh Rawal starrer “OMG”, which showed idol worship in bad light. In light of #AntiHindu Bollywood, this video has risen to prominence with supporters of the trend reverently quoting him.
The spiritual leader, in the video, had commented on how without idols, pictures, music, dance and colorful festival is synonymous to Indian culture, and that the country would be no better than Afghanistan where statues of 2000 year old Bamiyana Budhas were destroyed.
“You can’t put all Ashrams into one basket and say they’re hopeless. You can’t say all temples are simply… looting money..What do the Bollywood do?.. For ‘Vicks’ advertisement they have to come and sneeze two times.. that’s it… two, three Crores they take home. And what do they do? Drink, go for drugs and drinking, partying and waste money. Whose money they are wasting? Public!”
He goes on to add that most Bollywood celebrities engage in “immoral, unethical behaviour,” and are miserable. “And they say there should be no idols, there should be no ‘poojas’, don’t go to ‘satsangs’.”
“You will see in Bollywood, anybody wearing a ’tilak’ will be a villain. Someone with a little ‘chotti’. He must be a bad guy. They bring the dignity of people who are practicing the ancient wisdom or religion in a bad light, so that the young people can move away from that. The more young people move away from the traditional values, they can make them susceptible for drugs. All these lobbies work towards them. What stops youth from drugs, I tell you. It is the religiosity.”
“Unfortunately Bollywood is destroying its (Indian culture) by projecting it all in a negative light. And who is funding this? Coming from Dawood-type of people”.
Seeing all these one can ask a reasonable question definitely. Is the hold of ‘D’ Company now gradually increasing to make more and more anti-Hindu and pro-Muslim films after the demise of Bala Saheb Thackeray? The probability cannot be denied.
But, we must blame the trend of Bollywood films for the vilification of Hindutva and glorification of Islam. These film makers could not depict a Muslim Peer in the place of the mafia in a clad of a Hindu saint like image. Not they dared to make a sequence to offer prayer in a Mahaklaxmi Temple or Siddhi Vinayak Temple or to salute it in a police uniform? Why this Hindu bashing is up-coming in the films made in these days?
The answer is simple. Hindus make protests even with a limitation of societal norms. They don’t follow the Azad Maidan type violations. And these are the advantages of Anil Ambani, Ajay Devgan or Rohit Shetty. These writer or screen play writer, Sajid-Farhad or Yunus are nothing but the paid workers of Ambani, Devgan or Shetty.
Protest against humiliation is good. In earlier cases Hindus protested and even went to courts against ‘Rash-Leela’ and “Bhagh Milkha Bhag”. But, what happened? Nothing.
Now, we have to avenge on personal level who don’t care the sentiments of Hindus for their personal interest. When they will understand their personal loss, may be they will have some sense for rectification. Ambani, Devgan and Shetty must be tied in a rope of hatred before put them into the fire of wrath. Otherwise all the paintings of naked Hindu deities by M. F. Husain will be the materials of the upcoming films by Ambani, Devgan or Shetty.
We didn’t allow the staying of M F Husain in Bharat for his anti Hindu eccentricity. Why there is a concession for these bastards in the present row??

Times Group in Pune Mirror tried vilification of Hindu Existence with a malafide mode of Secularism to curb Cyber Hindus. We protest and put forth the reality in the realm of the reliance of conscious Hindus.
~ Upananda Brahmachari.
On July 2nd, I got a mobile call from Pune, Maharashtra at afternoon time. One Prateek Goyal from Pune was at the other end. He claimed to be a reporter of ‘Pune Mirror’ as I heard and wanted to know whether my website http://www.hinduexistence.org had been banned in any earlier occasion. The voice in my mobile was not clear, though I was trying to respond the man on line.
Actually, our popular Hindu Existence Web Site (earlier a wordpress blog in the same name) with more than 20,00,000 hits, is big size sand particle in the eyes of Cyber Jihadis and a severe migraine for the Muslim and Christian loyalist Secular media maroons. The Shinde and Dogvijoy Brigade in UPA-II regime time and gain put ban on this site to curb the proliferation of Hindutva through this site in a very successful way.
I told the man Prateek about such ban time to time and a ban of 17 days in 2012 at a stretch in UPA II regime led by a Christian woman from Italy. The later was happened at the time of Bodo-Muslim rift in Assam and the Islamic menace created by Raja Academy in Azad maidan in Mumbai. As I am not a technical person, it was difficult for me to understand the level of ban in question. Sometimes, it was a local ban on any particular service provider like Airtel net or others but were visible with other service providers and my foreign site visitors never complained as such. But the 17 days blocking created an embarrassment to our visitors with a reference of ban under DoT (Depertment of Telecom) interference. I consulted with one of my Advocate friends in Calcutta High Court and sent a mail to the concerned Department to get the particular cause of ban on us, if really done by them. After some days the ban was lifted.
Then Parteek wanted to take a stock with the report of arrest of Sri Dhananjay Desai of Hindu Rashtra Sena published in our site in connection with the murder of Muslim techie in Hadapsar, Pune by public in wrath due to derogatory facebook posting about Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj and Balasaheb Thackary. All on a sudden he tried to abuse us as the report and one of the pictures tagged with it, was morphed and the illustrations were provocative etc. He wanted to know our standpoint as we wrote on that picture, “MUSLIMS NOW MUST LEARN TO RESPECT OTHER RELIGIONS. OTHERWISE THEY HAVE TO SUFFER FURTHER”. I clearly communicated to Prateek that the maximum communal tensions, riots take place in India due to desecrating others sentiments. And definitely it is originated from Quran and I advised him to read Quran to known the mentality of Muslims (Momins) to Non Muslims (Kaffirs) which is bone of contention in respect of bloody Jihad, communal riots and so on.
As per my estimate, Prateek was not ready to agree with me and he started to read a list, those were objectionable to him seen in our site. I just told him if he would communicate a formal notice to us from his authority in case of any violation as such. In a point of discussion, I doubted the man as a reporter or not as his versions were too partisan and bare anti Hindu in a secular coating. Within some minutes the communication reached to an end.
On the next day on 3rd July a friend of my friend at Pune told us that a report was seen in Pune Mirror in 3rd page under the caption, “Banned sites alive and well” with the picture of the editor of Hindu Existence.
I was busy then with some Dharmik Anusthan (Religious programme) and was not online. So, I had to wait for hours to view the matter in fact. Afterwards I tried to have the ongoing in Pune Mirror (A Times of India Publication) through my relation with Sri V J Nargolkar (an erudite educationist and an exponent of Shivaji and Savarkar) and Sri Devidas Shinde, reputed Advocate in Pune. Afterwards, I read the report online and the whole of the matter came to an exposure. The biased report against Hindu Existence published in Pune Mirror may be read here from this hyperlink also.
The report is nothing but a ‘Secular’ attack on Hindu Existence and other Hindu media within the same line of action of Muslim Jihadis and the Christian Evangelists. Actually, Times Group in Pune Mirror tried an utter vilification of Hindu Existence and others like http://www.hinduunity.org, http://www.hinduhumanrights.org etc. with a malafide mode of secularism to curb Cyber Hindus. We protest and put forth the reality in the realm of the reliance of conscious Hindus.
First of all we want to mention here that we don’t believe in any hatred as liked by a section of Muslims and Christians captured by some fanatic ideologies propagated by Quran or Bible. We want to propagate Hindutva as propounded by Chatrapati Shivaji, Swami Vivekananda, Veer Savarkar, Dr Hedgewad, Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose and so on. We don’t want to attack others and must not tolerate any attack upon us.
Some illustrations in Hindu Existence irked the Pune Mirror.
We publish news from many sources with due courtesy and try to publish illustrations with relevance. 95% of our pictures match with our reports as those are directly connected with the news. But in very few cases we use some pictures from archive or the representational pictures with clear mention. Every web media maintain this practice including TOI. In our “ABOUT: HINDU EXISTENCE” page it is clearly stated that: “All the contents taken for use in this site from other sources are mentioned under due courtesy and sometimes pics are used representationally as mentioning Pic: Rep.” The points raised by the Pune Mirror reporter are out of any merit as none of our reports or pictures caused any violence or incitement so far. All are put in the site without any change.
Side by side, we try to publish the appeal of Police in case of any Communal violence etc. to help the police authority. In this estimation we also published the available appeal of Pune Police Authority (in Marathi) to keep peace and harmony etc. in case of techie murder and arrest of HRS leader in Pune. This was not definitely considered by our antagonist Pune Mirror reporter.
Fortunately, the reporter of Pune Mirror did not claim any false report in Hindu Existence but he mentioned a “re-post newspaper reports with its own virulent ‘twist’.” Yes, we do it with due courtesy to others. Our concern is a non-profiteering Hindu Media and what is virulent ‘twist’ to Prateek, that is our effort to ‘Hinduize’ the Indian Media as our passion. If Arab dollar and Christian Euro want to control the Indian media, we are here ready to Hinduize our media and our men with our blood and sweat in every inches. We are not paid media but a Hindu Media Force for making a Hindu Rashtra in Bharat.
Prateek may notice two comments of the readers of Pune Mirror on his report. One Mihir Saxena wrote: “A news report published in 2012 stated that around 20 per cent of web pages blocked by the government were uploaded by right wing fundamentalists to create communal rifts” So who uploaded the balance 80% web pages blocked by the government? In reply one K S Roy wrote: “Obviously these 80% belong to Ultra Leftist, dangerous Islamist the wicked Evangelists and the opportunist Secular. The partisan anti Hindu role of the paid media is also a threat to the communal harmony in our life.” Prateek Goyal, the reporter of Pune Mirror can try to understand the reality in it and be refrained for any indulgence with the bogus ideas of Saffron Terrorism or Communal Hindu Media.
For the kind information of all concerned, we have been trying to send our reports to POI and PM of Bharat through email with a genuine practice. And so far we have not got any objection till date. Whatever we do, do it for the interest of public well being without any narrow views based upon caste, creed or any communal feeling. We highly respect Holy Constitution of Bharat and ready to accept any instruction/guidance/proposal in open mind in order to replicate any fallacy or ignorance on our part.
Post Script: Though I am not a Maharashtrian, but I like Shiva Vandana. I recite it everyday. Every Hindus must chant it in public places in hundreds. Then all anti Hindu – anti National forces including anti-Hindu media will be crushed out very quickly.

Kanpur DM appeals for peace after communal clashes during Ram Navmi
PTI | Kanpur (Uttrpradesh) Apr 09, 2014 :: After a clash between two communities over the route of a procession on the occasion of Ram Navmi in Kalyanpur area near in Kanpur, the district magistrate on Wednesday appealed to people to maintain peace and harmony. [See Hindi report here].
The situation is under control in the area and schools and colleges have been opened, DM Roshan Jacob told reporters, adding SMS alerts have also been sent out to people in the area.
A team of senior officials has already been sent to the area for investigations, he said. CCTV cameras have been installed in the area and a police picket has been posted, the DM said.
According to reports, the clash broke out in Rawatpur village of Kalyanpur area last evening when a procession on Ram Navami was diverted from its usual route citing poor condition of roads.
According to police, organisers did not take permission for diverting the procession.
More than half-a-dozen shops were vandalised and a jeep of the magistrate was burnt by the rioters. Police caned and fired shells of tear gas to bring the mob under control.
Around 12 persons were reported with minor injuries whereas some police officials also were reportedly injured in the incident.
Meanwhile, public on Wednesday faced inconvenience as political parties took out procession in favour of their Lok Sabha candidates in the city. Samajwadi Party candidate Surendra Mohan Aggarwal filed his nomination papers from the Kanpur Lok Sabha seat.
Communal clashes erupt on Ram Navami in Kanpur; 8 injured
Bhaskar News | Kanpur | Apr 09, 2014 :: A clash between two communities on the eve of Ram Navami in Sayed Nagar of Kalyanpur area in Kanpur left at least eight people injured on Tuesday. The communal violence broke out over taking out of Ram Navami procession in the area.
Tension was the order of the day as the two rival groups resorted to indiscriminate firing and lobbed hand-made bombs during the clash. Police had to resort to cane-charge to control the mobs after they tried to manhandle them.
A heavy police force, led by senior superintendent of police (SSP) Ajay Kumar Mishra, district magistrate Raushan Jacob and city’s additional DM Avinash Singh rushed to the site and tried to resolve issue.
Eight injured in communal clash in Kanpur
HT Correspondent | Kanpur | April 08, 2014:: Eight people were injured when members of two communities fought a pitched battle over taking out of Ram Navmi procession in Sayed Nagar of Kalyanpur area in Kanpur late Tuesday evening.
Panic spread in the area after the rival groups resorted to indiscriminate firing and lobbed hand-made bombs during the clash. Police had to resort to cane charge to control the mobs after they tried to manhandle them.
A heavy police force, led by senior superintendent of police (SSP) Ajay Kumar Mishra, district magistrate Raushan Jacob and city’s additional DM Avinash Singh rushed to the site and tried to resolve issue.
The religious procession, containing dozens of vehicles, began from a temple in Rawatpur and was supposed to pass through various localities, including Maswanpur, Raushan Nagar, Sayed Nagar, Awas Vikas colony before ending at the temple.
When it reached Sayed Nagar, the organisers took alternative lanes and by-lanes as the traditional route was badly damaged.
At one point the residents stopped the procession by parking hand-driven carts in the passage. This led to the clash and soon thousands of people joined in.
However, before things could go out of hand, the DM and SSP managed a solution to the dispute following which the procession ‘rath’ passed through the lane but the devotees and other vehicles went through the traditional route.

Hardline and Hindu: Nationalists on the rise in India.
Hindu nationalists are gaining power in India – and silencing opponents along the way. Should the West be worried?
Supporters of the Hindu nationalist Narendra Modi voice their support for him as the prime ministerial candidate for the BJP, at a rally in the Gujarati city of Ahmedabad. Photo: Reuters.
Sunny Hundal | The Age Victoria | 06 March, 2014:: When publishing group Penguin abruptly accepted defeat in an Indian court and withdrew a controversial book last month, the backlash was so ferocious it took almost everyone by surprise.
A small, hardline Hindu group said it had found the book, The Hindus: An Alternative History, by the academic Wendy Doniger offensive towards their religion, forcing the mighty conglomerate to retreat in the face of a lawsuit. [Correct measures taken by the Siksha banchao Andolan's Dinanath Batra and others. Who gave the powers to attack Hindu sentiments as Doniger did? Hindus are now understanding that enough is enough! ~ Editor Hindu Existence.]
Two authors subsequently asked the publisher to cancel contracts and pulp their books, too, a move described as ”unprecedented” by one Indian newspaper.
In the same week, the US ended its decade-long boycott of the controversial politician Narendra Modi after its envoy met him to discuss bilateral relations. Modi is the prime ministerial candidate of the opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and favourite to win the national elections in April.
The State Department had cancelled his visa in 2005 on grounds of ”severe violations of religious freedom” and had repeatedly refused to review its policy, until pragmatism forced its hand.
The withdrawal of Doniger’s book and the US rapprochement with Modi are not unrelated. Liberals in India say they feel under attack and more despondent than ever about the right to expression, as religious groups increasingly flex their muscles.
Many fear that Hindu nationalists will be further emboldened if Modi, their most demagogic leader, is elected prime minister.
The fact that it is 25 years to the month since Salman Rushdie received a fatwa for The Satanic Verses has not been lost on some.
WE ARE NOT ENDORSING THE IDEAS REFLECTED IN THIS PRESENT ARTICLE. BUT REPRODUCING THIS ARTICLE CAN HELP OUR READERS TO MAKE IT CLEAR THAT THE PRESENT HINDU WAVE HAS REACHED EUROPE AMERICA AND AUSTRALIA AS A PANIC TO THE ISLAMIC AND EVANGELICAL GROUPS. SO, THEY WANT TO SLANDER THE HINDU MOVEMENTS IN INDIA AS WELL AS THE HINDU NATIONALIST FACE OF NARENDRA MODI. IT IS A CRUCIAL TIME TIME FOR HINDUS TO SET A HINDU AGENDA FOR 2014 ELECTION AND ESTABLISH A HINDU RAJ IN INDIA. A MORE DEDICATION AND DEVOTION IS REQUIRED FOR THE ESTABLISHMENT OF HINDU RASHTRA IN INDIA. ~ Upananda Brahmachari, Editor, Hindu Existence.
”We are in the middle of a cultural emergency, and the levels of oppression in the cultural area should worry us as much as the political oppression [in India] of the 1970s,” Rushdie said at a debate in February. A columnist at The Indian Express newspaper said Penguin’s capitulation represented ”the pulping of liberal India”.
Narendra Modi ~ I am a Hindu nationalist.
Just a week earlier, a mob calling itself the Hindu Sena (Hindu Army) burnt copies of Delhi-based magazine The Caravan over an interview with a Hindu extremist who alleged that a prominent religious leader had sanctioned attacks across India that killed more than 100 people between 2006 and 2008. [All false allegations against Swami Aseemananda as exposed in the media. NIA has nothing to say against Aseemananda. But, the Congress and it allies always go against the Hindu saints to appease the Muslim Clergies and Christian missionaries. ~ Editor, Hindu Existence.]
”Groups of all stripes have been emboldened by the fact that, in India, freedom to take offence routinely trumps freedom of expression or freedom of academic research,” says Sandip Roy, a senior editor at firstpost.com.
”Whether it’s Bangladeshi writer Taslima Nasrin being hounded out of West Bengal, Salman Rushdie not being allowed to make a tele-appearance at Jaipur, or Rohinton Mistry’s Such a Long Journey being taken out of the Mumbai university syllabus, India’s political parties have routinely allowed fringe groups to grab the limelight. [Why this writer Sunny Hundal kept silence all about the attacking Muslim activists in India against Taslima, Rushdie or the Film: Innocence of Islam etc. Why hw sid not write an article: 'Hardline and Islam. Taliban Force in the Rise in India' ? ~ Editor, Hindu Existence.]
”If they feel the party in power is more ideologically sympathetic to it, of course it will feel, as Dinanath Batra [the man behind the lawsuit against Doniger] did, that ‘the good times are coming’.”
Hindus don’t have a reputation for religious extremism, but over the past 25 years, an increasingly aggressive movement has grown and started flexing its muscles. The list of authors who have faced ruinous lawsuits, had books banned or lives threatened in India is growing alarmingly long. (Not all of the bans relate to Hindu groups; Muslims and Christians have demanded censorship, too.).
”Narendra Modi has been an activist for the Hindu far-right paramilitary RSS and its affiliates for the entirety of his political life. He remains committed to the supremacist ideology of Hindutva, which says that India should be an exclusive Hindu nation state in which minorities are treated as second-class citizens or worse.”
The movement mushroomed in 1984 when the VHP launched a campaign to reclaim a mosque it said was built on the birthplace of Lord Ram. In 1992, it incited activists to demolish the mosque, sparking riots between Hindus and Muslims across India and propelling the BJP, which took advantage of the controversy, into national consciousness and into government in 1998.
But Narendra Modi became a controversial figure in 2002, when a train with Hindu pilgrims coming from the site of the mosque was set on fire by Muslims, killing 58. That sparked riots across the state of Gujarat, where he was still Chief Minister, and more than 2000 Muslims were killed and thousands made homeless. [To create another tension between Hindu and Muslims the foreign media forces have jumped into the situation. They are trying to present an anti-Muslim Modi to snatch away the Muslim votes from BJP so that the drowning Congress can catch the straw of the monorties. This is a myth now. Modi will get substantial votes from Muslims also. ~ Editor, Hindu Existence.]
Reports by various groups including Human Rights Watch found extensive evidence of state participation and complicity in the violence. One of Modi’s cabinet ministers, Maya Kodnani, was convicted of orchestrating a massacre and seen handing out swords to Hindus and exhorting them to kill Muslims.
A large part of Modi’s popularity abroad comes from his message that Gujarat can be a beacon for India’s economic development. This Gujarati pride resonates strongly in Britain and the United States, where large proportions of Indians are of Gujarati origin.
In December 2002, an investigation by Channel 4 found that some funds from a British aid organisation were going to Hindu groups blamed for the 2002 riots in India. Channel 4’s Jonathan Miller reported: ”Several inquiries, including one by the British high commission, saw the hand of the RSS and its associated organisations behind the violence.” [We will start a probe, to unearth the malafide intentions brought by some foreign channels, after Narendra Modi comes to power. We just perceive a Modi-phobia in the western media and theirs sponsorship tagged with the Churches is prevalent. America has already bowed to Modi by sending Nancy Powell to meet Modi. The East and West will certainly come under the spell of Hindutva without any hesitation. The paid media like The Age - Victoria cannot be able to do any harm to us. Hindus will be victorious. ~ Editor, Hindu Existence. ]

IS HINDU DHARMA GOOD AND HINDUTVA BAD?
“When Germany is Christian, is India Hindu?” got amazingly good response with thousands of facebook likes. However, some readers felt I made a mistake by not distinguishing between good, tolerant Hinduism, which is a private belief, and bad, intolerant Hindutva, which stands for the ‘communal agenda of an extreme right Hindu party’ that wants to force uniform Hinduism on this vast country, an act which is completely un-Hindu and against the pluralism of India.
Is Hindutva really different from Hindu Dharma and dangerous? Or have those, which coined the term, an interest in making it look like that? No doubt, Hindutva has a bad name in the eyes of many, in spite of the ruling of the Supreme Court in 1995:
“Hindutva is indicative more of the way of life of the Indian people. …Considering Hindutva as hostile, inimical, or intolerant of other faiths, or as communal proceeds from an improper appreciation of its true meaning.”
I would like to explain from a personal angle, why I came to the conclusion that it is indeed ‘an improper appreciation of its true meaning’, when Hindutva is branded as communal and dangerous.
For many years I lived in ‘spiritual India’ without any idea how important the terms ‘’secular’ and ’communal’ were. The people I met were appreciative of India’s great heritage. They gave me tips which texts to read, which sants to meet, which mantras to learn, etc., and I wrote about it for German readers. I used to think that all Indians are genuinely proud of their ancestors, who had stunningly deep insights into what is true about us and the universe and who left a huge legacy of precious ancient texts unparalleled in the world.
However, when I settled in a ‘normal’ environment away from ashrams and pilgrimage places and connected with the English speaking middle class including some foreign wives, I was shocked that several of my new friends with Hindu names were ridiculing Hinduism without knowing much about it. They had not even read the Bhagavad-Gita, but pronounced severe judgment. They gave the impression as if Hinduism was the most depraved and violent of all religions and responsible for all the ills India is facing. The caste system and crude rules of Manusmiti were quoted as proof. Reading newspapers and watching TV, I also discovered an inexplicable, yet clear anti Hindu stand.
My new acquaintances had expected me to join them in denouncing ‘primitive’ Hinduism which I could not do as I knew too much, not only form reading extensively, but also from doing sadhana. They were not amused and declared that I had read the wrong books. They asked me to read the right books, which would give me the ‘correct’ understanding. They obviously did not doubt their own view to be the correct one. However, instead of coming around by reading Romila Thapar and co, I rather got the impression that there was an intention behind the negative portrayal of Hinduism: Christianity and Islam were meant to look good in comparison. My neighbour, a writer with communist leanings, henceforth introduced me to his friends as “the local RSS pracharak”. Many ‘secular’ Indians consider the RSS as Hindu fundamentalists, occasionally equating it even with Islamic terror groups. So no surprise that an elderly lady once retorted, “In this case I am not pleased to meet you.”
What was my ‘fault’? I dared to say that I love Hindu Dharma, as it (its off- springs Buddhism, Jainism and Sikhism included) is the only religion that is inclusive and not divisive, whereas Christianity and Islam divide humanity into those who have the ‘true faith’ and those who are wrong and will pay for it eternally in hell, if not already on earth. Standing up for Hindu Dharma (and not only following it in private) indicted me as belonging to the ‘Hindutva brigade’ that is shunned by mainstream media. Of course my stand is neither communal nor dangerous for India. Hindu Dharma is indeed inclusive, and needs to gain strength at the expense of Christianity and Islam, which are exclusive and therefore communal.
No doubt something is seriously wrong about the public discourse on ‘secular’ and ‘communal’ in India. I can’t believe that those media anchors and invited guests don’t know it. Indians are intelligent. So why would they get secular and communal wrong?
Secular means worldly in contrast to sacred or religious, and secularism is a western concept. State and religion were intertwined since Christianity became state religion in the Roman Empire. The Church declared what is the truth, for example that that Jesus is the only way or that the earth is flat, and everyone had to agree. If scientists disagreed, they were in serious trouble. Not without reason those centuries of Church domination are called ‘dark ages’ and the liberation from her tight embrace is called the era of ‘Enlightenment’. For Christian Europe, it was a great and hard fought achievement to get ‘secular’ states, where the Church could not push anymore her agenda through state laws. Several centuries ago, even the Sunday mass was obligatory in German kingdoms. Nobody was allowed to leave Christianity. The blasphemy laws kept the flock in check. Heresy was punished severely. Jews suffered discrimination and persecution all through history being branded as the killers of Jesus.
After Martin Luther split the Church into Protestants and Catholics, fierce wars were fought over supremacy which destroyed much of central Europe. In 1648, after 30 years of fighting, a compromise was found: the subjects of a region had to follow the religion of their ruler. Only in 1847, a Prussian king introduced a law for ‘negative religious freedom’, which meant, his subjects had the right to leave the Catholic or Protestant Church. Ever since, the Churches are losing sheep from their flock. It points to the fact that Christianity did not grow because its dogmas were convincing. It gained strength because those born in the faith could not leave it. The blasphemy laws propped up Christianity.
India has a completely different story. Sanatana Dharma was never based on unreasonable dogmas and did not need state oppression to keep believers in check. It was not in opposition to science. It was helpful to society as a whole by giving guidelines for an ideal life that acknowledges the invisible, conscious essence in the visible universe. It did not straight jacket people into an unbelievable belief system. It allowed freedom of thought and many parallel streams with different ways to connect to this essence emerged. “Hinduism is a way of life”, is often said. Following Hindu Dharma is actually anideal way of life.
Since I grew up in the Catholic Church and know the narrow mindedness that is indoctrinated into children, I wonder why on earth Indians would prefer dogmatic religions to their ancient, benign Dharma. Don’t they see the real communal danger? Those ‘secular’ friends, who fiercely defend the right of the religious minorities to assert their exclusive identity, don’t seem to realise that both, Christianity and Islam cannot live with others peacefully. Both religions need to dominate. And both are very powerful worldwide, politically and financially. As long as they have not yet the numbers in India, they may downplay the central tenet of exclusiveness in their ideologies. But exist it does.
Secularism has dented the influence of Christianity in the west. But the Church did not give up its goal to make the whole mankind believe in Christ, and focusses now on the huge mass of Hindus. In Islam, the clergy still has a hold on the faithful and in several Muslim countries leaving Islam is punishable by death. As the Quran itself forbids the followers to leave the faith, it is difficult to forego the blasphemy laws.
The Indian secularists seem to fight for the right of Christianity and Islam to be communal and for their followers not to integrate into the Indian society, but to stress their separate identity. And what is this separate identity? It is merely an unverifiable belief that gravely impacts the mind-set. This mind-set not only creates outsiders, but it creates outsiders that are looked down upon. How can educated Indians be blind to the danger and risk having in future more partitions on the basis of unsubstantiated religious beliefs, including the risk of more terrible bloodshed?
Strangely, the dogmatic, exclusive religions are not accused of being divisive, but Hinduism is. Why? Hindus are required to see Brahman, the one Godhead, in everyone, never mind how he connects to his creator. In contrast, the followers of dogmatic religions are not required to respect those who reject their respective ‘true religion’. They are even allowed to hate them. The ease, with which Christians and Muslims killed unbelievers, is frightening. Only 70 years ago six million Jews were murdered in cold blood in gas chambers in Germany. Only a little over 40 years ago, hundred thousands, if not millions, of Hindus were butchered in Bangladesh. There are many more examples. Humanity needs to win over such madness. How? Hindu Dharma has the key: acknowledge that we are all members of one family – coming from the same source with the same blood as it were…

Success of Hindus : District Administration starts demolishing illegal slaughter-house at Morba, Raigad, Maharashtra.
Hindus should offer gratitude at the feet of Almighty for this success !
Hindu Existence News Bureau | Mumbai | 31 January 2014:: Though the main stream media rejected this story (!), the reality is that the proposed and under construction ‘largest slaughter house in Asia’ at Morba, Raigad, Maharashtra is now under Bulldozers being used by the Dist. authority for its complete demolition.
The illegal slaughter house had been developing by the hands of some Kokoni Islamists in more that 75 acres of sprawling cultivation land in a very mysterious way though there was no such permission for the same.
Aggrieved animal lovers, cow worshipers and the environmental activists joined hand under the united Hindu agitation banner led by Senior Hindu saints of the society and none other than Pujya Jain Muni Vinamrasagarji. On 2oth January, some 30000 Hindus and animal lovers came to street to protest over the illegal construction of the slaughter house and the Jain Muni cautioned the Govt to remove it immediately, unless he would not leave Raigad. The Muni was continuing his sitting ‘Dharna’ near Morba, Raigad. Thousand of supporters gradually were getting joined in that movement. Various orgnisations like Hindu Janajagruti Samiti, Ahimsa Manch, Hinsa Virodhi Manch, local VHP etc. were put together their hands to garner a public support for the removal of the illegal slaughter house at Morba.
Seeing the staunch and die-hard stand of the Hindu-Jain-Social activists forums, on 29th January the district authority started bulldozing of the illegal constructions of the impugned Morba Slaughter House.
It is a great victory for the nationalist Hindus and the worst defeat of the anti-national elements in the Muslims. Illegal Morba Slaughter House is no more. Lakhs of cow live is saved now.
Save Cow activists are now planning to remove all illegal slaughter houses in Maharashtra, the land of Chatrapati Shivaji, who was the champion Cow protector. Cow slaughter was completely banned in Hindu Padpadshahi (ruling) of Chatrapati. Then how cow slaughter can be permitted in the land od samarth Guru Ramdas and Chatrapati Shivaji?
HJS Media and Sanatan Prbaht published the entire coverage as below:
- Why the Government could not notice this illegal slaughter-house earlier ?
- Administration wakes up only after people stage agitations; then why should we waste money on maintaining such administration ?
- Jain Muni Pujya Vinamrasagarji resolves to start movement for illegal slaughter-houses at Dharashiv, New Mumbai, Meera- Bhyandar and Bhiwandi after Morba !
Morba (Mangaon, Dist. Raigad) : Various pro-Hindu organizations had taken out a huge protest march on District Collector’s office on 20th January against illegal slaughter-house. It is a success of unity that the District Administration has started demolition of this illegal slaughter-house from 29th January under police protection. JCB (Bulldozer) machines are also used here for the purpose. (Hindus united strength under leadership of Saints and God’s grace were the reasons that Government had to take action against illegal slaughter house at Morba. Hindus should keep an ideal of united strength of Hindus before them and make a resolve to fight against every attack on Dharma and nation with such active unity ! – Editor, Dainik Sanatan Prabhat)
Construction of slaughter-house was going on at Morba for the past one year on 68 acres of land. A huge protest march was taken out on 20th January considering its adverse effects. More than 25,000 Hindus united to join the march under leadership of different pro-Hindu organizations including Shiv Sena.
Drive against slaughter-houses at Dharashiv, New Mumbai, Meera – Bhyandar and Bhiwandi to be undertaken after Morba ! – Jain-Muni Pujya Vinamrasagarji
Jain – Muni Pu. Vinamrasagarji had given a warning of not leaving Raigad till demolition of illegal slaughter-house started. Now, the demolition has started. It is condemnable to build a slaughter-house on the holy land of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. There is a conspiracy to construct biggest slaughter-house at Dharashiv (Usmanabad) on 150 acres of land. Even at New Mumbai, Meera- Bhyandar and Bhiwandi, there are plans to spoil environment and people’s health through slaughter-houses. Agitation will be staged against all of them, informed Pu. Vinamrasagarji on this occasion. (One Jain-Muni is fighting for protection of cows and successfully undertaking his mission. He wants to fight against such anti-Dharma happenings which Hindus need to learn. Why so many Saints – Mahants and powerful pro-Hindu organizations cannot achieve what one Jain – Muni can do ? – Editor, Dainik Sanatan Prabhat) Every devout Hindu should take part in this agitation with his body, mind and wealth so as to perform his duty towards Dharma, was the appeal made by Shri. Rakesh Jain, representing Jain community.
Success of Hindu unity ! – Shri. Vinod Ghosalkar
Everyone had opposed the slaughter-house at Morba right from the beginning; but the Government paid no attention. Hindus, however, united to stage a strong agitation with clenched fists that has resulted in initiation of action !

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

Success: ‘No-entry for outsiders’ signboards installed by Jammat as Fatwa in Rameswaram villages removed under Hindu Protest.
Special correspondent | Ramanathapuram (Tamil Nadu) | Jan 01, 2014:: Following a report published by The Pioneer first and propagated by Hindu Existence, Haindavakeralam and Hindu Janjagruti Samiti about the billboards put up by local Jamaat Councils in Ramanathapuram district of Tamil Nadu that ‘outsiders were not allowed into the villages’, police last week removed all the signboards displayed prominently at entrances to the villages.
Hindu Existence propagated the issue under the headline “Fatwa challenges Rule of the land in Rameshwram villages in Tamil Nadu. Hindus are prohibited in some parts of India.” and commented “Islamic Fatwa violates Indian Sovereignty in Rameshwram villages in Tamil Nadu. Non Muslims are not allowed in the outskirts of Hindu Shrine place, even not allowed to purchase lands. State and Central Govt.s are sleeping. Oh Hindus! Retaliate wherever possible. Don’t give entry of Muslims and Christians in Hindu Villages and don’t sell a piece of land even. It’s our existential question in Bharat. Anti-Hindu forces are too active to cease our rights in the traditional land of Hindus.”
Immediate after publication of the report, the Hindu Existence Forum sent all the clippings of the news and pictures to various authorities (Administrative and Police) in Tamil Nadu and forwarded the same to all possible corner of the globe including the international media.
The high offices of President of India and the Prime Minister of India have also been alerted for such a repression over Hindus around Rameswaram villages.
The endeavour of all concerned and the main reporter of the specific news, Kumar Chellappan of The Pioneer has been reached to a fruitful end at last.
Yesterday, Ramanathapuram Superintendent of Police NM Mayilvahananan has been quoted by a local daily that he ordered the removal of the boards since they had the word ‘Warning’. “Only the police can use the word ‘Warning’ in public places,” he told the reporter of a local daily.
Though the local daily report quotes a Baskaran (that too a changed name), as telling that the boards were never a bone of contention as it was collective decision to put them up, The Pioneer had carried comments from persons with original names and are known to everybody in the district.
Though MH Jawahirullah, the Manithaneya Makkal Katchi (an Islamist outfit) MLA representing the Ramanathapuram constituency said no fatwa has been issued anywhere in the district and the report about hoisting of national tricolour with chappals was false, he has conceded that a group of boys were fined by the police for hoisting chappals. What he left unsaid was the presence of national tricolour along with the chappals.
The report also quotes that the presence of the bill boards were of no concern earlier. “It is out of fear that nobody lodges a complaint,” said D Kuppu Ramu, an advocate and VHP leader who was once brutally attacked by Islamic terrorists.
Elsewhere in the Ramanathapuram district, there are instances of the Hindus living in perpetual fear because of the sheer strength of numbers of the Musilm community which is getting radicalised by the day.
The present case of initiating Shariat laws in a Muslim majority area issuing fatwa or the tendencies of expelling the Hindu minorities from Muslim areas , have the right answer through instant and joint protest in many ways to restore Indian Constitution and law of the lad over Islamic hegemony and dangerous Shariat.

Dejected to Semitic Religions. Returned to Hindu Fold. More than 5500 Christians and Muslims returned to ancestral Hindu Home in Uttar Pradesh.
Upananda Brahmachari | HE Media Bureau | Agra | Dec 26, 2013:: A Great News from the heart land of Uttar Pradesh. Thousands of converted Hindus have been opted again the faith of their forefathers and returned to Hinduism again.
On the eve of Christmas there was a hue and cry that the saffron brigade of RSS (Rashtriya Swamsevak Sangha), VHP (Vishwa Hindu Parishad), Bahrag Dal, Arya Samaj and Hindu Yuva Vahini would march forward to accept and assimilate their own brothers and sisters who shifted out of faith decades back in a spell of blunder and within an fraudulent ambit of allurement of the evangelical groups or the repressive Islamic elements empowered with inhumane forces.
On the very 25th Dec this year 2013, more than five thousand people returned to Hinduism and said goodbye to Christianity in a vast area of Uttar Pradesh in the localities of Agra, Aligarh, Kasganj, Bareilly, Badaun, Bijnor, Shahjahanpur, Mainpuri and Firojabad.
The highest re-conversion (Suddhi) in Aligarh, where 2000 Christian became Hindus, was held by Dhrama Jagran Samiti, a specific unit of VHP to make special efforts to sensitize the sense of Dharma in the marginal Hindus in any vulnerable condition, likely to be grabbed by the evangelic elements or other vicious elements like Zakir Naik .
Chanting of Vedic mantras, purification with Ganga Water, wearing of sacred threads and sacrifice to the fire God were the prime rituals that had helped the aspirants to get an warm entry to Hinduism once gain and for ever. Most of the people who took the refuge of Hinduism in these programmes, categorically told that they went to another faith by allurements and embraced Christianity . Seven Muslims in Shahjahanpur also adopted Hinduism.
Upon a complain, a details of conversion in Bijnor, the administration is trying to get exact numbers of such ‘returned to home’ (gar wapsi). From a source it is known that more than five hundred families (1600 people ) except Christianity became Hindu again. These people are mainly hailed from Malkan Rajput and belonging to Jat Muslim clan.
Mayor of Agra Town, Sri Indrajit Arya was also present in the program . In the ceremony held at Saraswati Vidya Mandir at Kasganj, 350 families ( about 1,000 people) and Firojabad 66 families (200 people) rejected Christianity and returned to their traditional faith Hinduism once again .
Prominent RSS , Vishwa Hindu Parishad, Hindu Vahini, Arya Samaj and Bajrang Dal leaders and the saints of Hindu organizations were present in these religious programmes. In Bareilly, six hundred people embraced Hinduism. Swami Yaswashi Arya of Arya Samaj sprinkled the holy Ganges water to the aspirants and initiated them with sacred thread (Yajna-Upaveetam).
With chanting of Veda mantra and offering sacrifice in fire the converted Hindus in dilemma, strongly returned back in Hinduism with full dignity and assurance of the Hindus society in every respect. In the programme of Draupadi Devi Inter College campus in Badaun, some 918 people of two hundred and twenty families were accepted Hinduism again by rejecting Christian hegemony and discrimination in such ‘homecoming’ program.
Various Hindu organisation have declared to extend their utmost support for providing the free education, health and rehabilitation for these brothers ans sisters came to their own fold of faith almost a decade after.
Erlier, some 325 Muslim members of 150 families of Eta, Farukhabad, Pilbhit, Kashganj, Mainpuri, Bareilly and Badaun were assembled in Eta Arsha Gurukul, where they were reconverted into Hindu Dharma again in presence of Jagadguru Swami Rajrajeswaram of Badrinath Dham. The Swami initiated all the aspirants in the Hindu Dhrama without discriminating any caste or creed.
Saikh Jabbar of Farukhabad and Mohammad Rauf of Pilvit told that they had a very low position in Muslim society as their forefathers went to Muslim community from a poor section of Hindu society.
Sabnam of Kapil (Farukhabad) and parvez Khan of Nagla Amar Singh (Eta) told that they had been feeling an unavoidable attachment with Hindu faith and people and even they protested cow slaughter and conspiracy of attacks on Hindus. As the Muslim Imams exploited them in various ways and under an utter desatisfactions they finally made their mind to accept their original faith.
In every place there was a wave of satisfaction and peace as all were in a realm of reunion and the love from the core of heart.
Though some Hindi media like Aaj Tak and Jagran highlighted this news of huge mass re-conversion in Hinduism, the English media (both print and electronic) skipped the same in a very strange manner.
Anyway, there is no known contra-action so far after the programmes of such large scale Paravartan held in Uttar Pradesh in a short time frame and neither there such any allegation of forceful activities from any side so far.

India Opposition Seen Winning Four State Elections in Modi Boost
Bloomberg | Andrew MacAskill & Bibhudatta Pradhan | Dec 4, 2013:: India’s main opposition party is set to take control of two states from the Congress party and keep control in two others, boosting its campaign to end the ruling party’s 10-year hold on power in national voting next year, exit polls showed.
The Bharatiya Janata Party, which picked Narendra Modi as its prime ministerial candidate in September, will win elections in states that account for almost a sixth of India’s population, including two currently held by the ruling Congress party, according to an exit poll conducted by C-Voter and broadcast on the Times Now television channel. Vote counting and official results will occur on Dec. 8.
The elections, held in recent weeks, are the final test for India’s two major national parties before elections that must be held by May 2014. Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s Congress party has seen corruption scandals, elevated consumer inflation and the weakest economic growth in a decade erode its popularity.
BJP victories in the four states may boost Indian stocks, according to Deven Choksey, managing director of Mumbai-based K.R. Choksey Shares & Securities Pvt. The benchmark S&P BSE Sensex, which has climbed 6.6 percent this year, fell 0.7 percent in Mumbai today.
“These results are good news for the stock market,” Choksey said. “The turnout in Delhi means a big victory margin for the BJP. A victory in Delhi will be the trump card for the BJP in the 2014 national elections.”
In a setback for Congress, the exit poll shows the Hindu nationalist BJP gaining its highest seat tally since 1993 in New Delhi while falling short of a majority. The BJP will have 29 of the capital’s 70 seats, with the incumbent Congress taking 21. The Aam Aadmi Party, which campaigned against corruption while contesting its first election, is poised to win 16 seats to hold the balance of power, the poll showed.
The BJP will also wrest control of Rajasthan from Congress by winning 130 out of 200 seats, up from its current total of 78, according to the poll.
While Modi’s party will retain power in Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh, Congress is poised to gain seats from its current tallies, the poll showed. In Mizoram, a small state in India’s northeast ruled by Congress that also held elections, no exit polls were conducted.
No margin of error or details of the poll methodology were given.
All the state elections had record voter turnout, the Hindustan Times reported, without saying where it got the information.
Modi, chief minister of Gujarat state in western India, is projecting his record of governance and stronger-than-average economic growth in the state he has ruled since 2001 in an attempt to propel his party to national power. Congress has been deploying Rahul Gandhi and his mother Sonia Gandhi, the party’s president, both members of a political dynasty that has ruled the country for more than half of the 66 years since independence.
The price of onions, a key ingredient in Indian cooking, has climbed 278 percent in the last year. Higher food prices eat into consumers’ disposable incomes and disproportionately impact the poor who make up about two thirds of India’s population.
India’s final full session of parliament before the general election begins tomorrow. The government has listed 38 bills for passage including one that would give a third of the seats in parliament to women. Singh said yesterday the government is committed to passing legislation to create a new state in southern India. [Courtesy: Bloomberg].
BJP set to return in Rajasthan, to retain MP, Chhattishgarh; leads in Delhi, say exit polls
Aurangzeb Naqshbandi | Hindustan Times | New Delhi | December 04, 2013:: Barely five months before the Lok Sabha elections, exit polls on Wednesday predicted a sweep for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Delhi assembly elections.
Crucially, Arvind Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is projected make a strong debut in Delhi, where the Congress may lose power after 15 years.
The early indicators are sure to enthuse the BJP’s prime ministerial nominee and Gujarat chief minister, Narendra Modi.
He was the Hindu nationalist party’s star campaigner in all four states and did not refrain from attacking the top Congress leadership, which, on the other hand, chose to ignore his barbs.
The state elections have been billed as the semi-final before the final battle in the general elections due by April-May 2014. They have also been projected as a popularity test for Modi.
For the BJP, victory in these four states, which account for 72 of the total 543 Lok Sabha seats, would strengthen Modi’s bid to bring the saffron party back to power at the Centre after 10 years.
If the exit poll predictions come true, the BJP is headed for a hat-trick in Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh and will oust the Congress in Rajasthan.
Delhi is predicted to go to the BJP too, but the big splash will be the emergence of Kejriwal’s AAP, which according to five different exit polls is likely to get as many as 17 seats.

We need Newspaper and News channel at national level, to take care of the interests of Hindus !
Vidyadhiraj Hall, Shri Ramnathi Devsthan, Goa | June 9, 2013 | Jyeshtha Shuklapaksha 1, Kaliyug Varsha 5115:: The faction of society, which is known as intellectuals, is in fact, senseless. These intellectuals spread thoughts against the interest of this nation and create confusion/ misunderstandings amongst people. They are only influencing today’s media. This is very detrimental for and causing harm to society and nation. Influence of Hindu Dharma on media has, therefore, become need of the hour and it is necessary to have at least one newspaper and one news channel that will take care of interests of Hindus. The above opinion was expressed by Shri. Upananda Brahmachari.
Shri. Upanand Brahmachari said,
- Media is influenced by foreign powers. To make efforts to destroy this influence is also ‘Dharma-yuddha’. Small pro-Hindu newspapers should be used with proper planning for eliminating secularism in journalism.
- As an alternative to the secular media, social websites managed on analogous basis should now be used effectively. Hindus should, therefore, make use of their individual accounts on various websites for spread of ‘Dharma-prasar (propagation of Dharma)’ rather than using them for entertainment.
- Hindus should be contacted through the medium of ‘Dharma-shikshan’ and ‘Dharma-satsangs’ to impart ‘Dharma-shikshan’ to them.
A Muslim immediately goes to media and starts making hue and cry when some incident occurs that is against his interests. Hindus should also make it a habit to approach media and fearlessly, without any hesitation, pronounce their problems, atrocities meted out to them.
‘हिंदुहितकी ओर ध्यान देनेवाले किसी एक राष्ट्रीय समाचारपत्र तथा समाचारप्रणालकी आवश्यकता !’
ज्येष्ठ शुक्ल १, कलियुग वर्ष ५११५ | विद्याधिराज सभागृह, श्री रामनाथ देवस्थान, गोवा :: वर्तमानमें बुद्धिवादी समझा जानेवाला समाजघटक वास्तवमें निर्बुद्ध है । ये बुद्धिवादी देशहितके विरोधमें विचार प्रसारित करते हैं और संभ्रम उत्पन्न करते हैं । इनका ही प्रभाव आजके प्रसारमाध्यमोंपर है । यह अत्यंत घातक है और सामाजिक तथा राष्ट्रीय हानिके लिए कारणभूत है । इसलिए हिंदू धर्मका प्रसारमाध्यमोंपर प्रभाव होना कालकी आवश्यकता है । अत: राष्ट्रीय स्तरपर हिंदूहित संजोनेवाला एक समाचारपत्र और एक समाचारप्रणाल आवश्यक है, ऐसा मत श्री. उपानंद ब्रह्मचारीने व्यक्त किया ।
श्री. उपानंद ब्रह्मचारीजीने कहा,
१. प्रसारमाध्यमोंपर विदेशी शक्तियोंका प्रभाव है । यह प्रभाव नष्ट करना भी एक धर्मयुद्ध ही है । पत्रकारितामें विद्यमान धर्मनिरपेक्षता नष्ट होने हेतु हिंदुत्वनिष्ठ विचारोंके छोटे-छोटे समाचारपत्रोंका नियोजनपूर्वक प्रयोग किया जाना चाहिए ।
२. धर्मनिरपेक्ष प्रसारमाध्यमोंके लिए विकल्पके रूपमें समांतर व्यवस्थासे युक्त सामाजिक सूचना जालस्थलोंका (वेबसाइटोंका) परिणामकारक प्रयोग करना चाहिए । इसलिए हिंदुओंको जालस्थलोंके (वेबसाइटोंके) व्यक्तिगत खातेका उपयोग केवल मनोरंजन कर, समय गंवानेके लिए नहीं, अपितु हिंदू धर्मके प्रसार हेतु करना चाहिए ।
३. धर्मशिक्षा और धर्मसत्संगोंके माध्यमसे हिंदुओंसे संपर्क कर उन्हें धर्मशिक्षा देनी चाहिए ।

Vidyadhiraj Hall, Shri Ramnathi Devsthan, Goa | June 9, 2013:: While Advocate Rabindra Ghosh of Bangladesh Minority Watch put a recommendation for the justice of persecuted BD Hindus in 2nd Hindu Adhiveshan at Goa, Shri Upananda Brahmachari of Hindu Existence, advocated for the rights of the vulnerable BD Hindus in a Islamic State of Bangladesh by placing the demands of BD Hindus as sent by the Bangladesh Hindu Grand Alliance to the ongoing Hindu Adhiveshan at Goa.
‘Why Maitri Express train to Anti-Hindu Bangladesh ?': Shri Upananda Brahmachari.
Vidyadhiraj Hall, Shri Ramnathi Devsthan, Goa | June 7, 2013 | Vaishakh Krushnapaksha 14, Kaliyug Varsha 5115:: In Bangladesh, Muslims are terrorists. They are fighting an undercover war against Bharat from there. Still, the Government of Bharat has started a special train ‘Friendship (Maitri) Express’ in order to develop friendly relations with Bangladesh. Through this train, Muslim terrorists from Bangladesh are infiltrating in Bharat. This opinion was expressed by Shri. Upanand Brahmachari, Editor, Hindu Existence website.
Shri. Upanand Brahmachari said,
1. Three and a half crore Hindus displaced from Bangladesh are dwelling in Bharat. They have not yet been allotted status of displaced persons. As a result, they are deprived of the Bharatiya citizenship. On the contrary, Muslim infiltrators from Bangladesh enjoy all rights of citizenship in Bharat.
2. The Rohingya Muslims from Myanmar are enumerated, but the Hindus displaced from Bangladesh are not enumerated. These Hindus should be declared as displaced persons and should be granted all rights as per international regulations.
3. Two crore Hindus in Bangladesh are being persecuted inhumanely. No facilities are provided to them.
4. It is necessary to establish coordination with the Hindus displaced from Bangladesh dwelling in Bharat and persecuted Hindus in Bangladesh. Afterwards, Hindus from Bangladesh should be allotted land on ownership basis for their residence, and the administration of such land should rest fully with local Hindus.

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

Hindu Legend, King of Million of Hindu Hearts, Shiv Sena supremo Bal Thackeray passes away.
Express news service : Mumbai, Sat Nov 17 2012 :: Bal Thackeray (86), founder of the Shiv Sena passed away at his residence Matoshree in suburban Bandra on Saturday. After his demise, son Uddhav has been taken ill. Close family members including nephew Raj Thackeray and his wife were by his side.
“He had suffered a cardiac arrest. We could not revive him despite our best efforts. He breathed his last at around 3:30 pm,” Dr Jalil Parkar, who treated the Sena supremo, said.
Bal Thackeray had been critically ill for the last few days and the condition of the 86-year-old Sena patriarch worsened on Wednesday night when he had to be put on life support. He was taken off life support later after showing signs of improvement.
Bal Thackeray had been suffering from lung and pancreatic ailments and had been under the supervision of doctors for the past two weeks. He was admitted to hospital for a week in July following fever, stomach pain and problems.
He is survived by two sons Uddhav and Jaidev and their families. While Uddhav who now runs the Sena, lived with Bal Thackeray, Jaidev moved out several years ago and the father-son shared strained ties. Thackeray’s another son Bindumadhav died in an …………………………………………………………………………………………………………………accident 15 years ago. His family also lives in Mumbai.
A rabble rouser, who started out as a cartoonist alongside R K Laxman in the Free Press Journal in the 1950s, founded the Shiv Sena in 1966 on the plank of job security for the Marathi manoos (sons of the soil) which translated into attacks on South Indians whom he had blamed for taking away the opportunities from the locals.
Referred by many as the uncrowned King of Mumbai, Thackeray made space for himself in Maharashtra’s political arena by addressing the concerns of Maharashtrians who increasingly felt marginalized and deprived in the fast developing metropolis of Mumbai.
In the five decades of the Sena’s existence, Thackeray formed an alliance with almost all political parties including the Congress, Socialist and even the Muslim League at various points of time to further his own cause.
Thackeray, however, had an anathema of adorning any constitutional posts and was happy in governing through “remote control.” [Full Report]
Bal Thackeray cremated at Shivaji Park, Mumbai.
Mumbai bids tearful farewell to Bal Thackeray
Mumbai | 18 Nov. 2012 :: The mortal remains of Bal Thackeray, a Hindutva mascot and flagbearer of Marathi pride, were consigned to flames as lakhs of mourners joined the Shiv Sena founder’s grieving family to bid him a tearful farewell, with the city observing a virtual shutdown.
In a spontaneous outpouring of grief, a sea of humanity, unprecedented in recent memory, descended on the streets leading from “Matoshree”, Thackeray’s Bandra home, to Shivaji Park, to catch the last glimpse of the uncrowned king of Mumbai.
As several times in life, the Thackeray phenomenon was in evidence once again in death as he brought Mumbai to a halt with all marketplace, from the swanky malls to the tiny tea stalls and ‘paan—beedi’ kiosks, closed and all roads leading to “Matoshree”, Shiv Sena Bhavan in Dadar and Shivaji Park, where his last rites were performed.
Loud roars of “Parat ya parat ya Balasaheb parat ya (Come back, come back, Balasaheb come back), Kon ala re, kon ala Shiv Senecha wagh ala (Who has come, who has come, Shiv Sena’s tiger has come)” and “Balasaheb amar rahe” (long live Balasaheb) rent the air as an emotional Uddhav, the youngest son of the departed leader and Sena’s executive president, lit the pyre.
In a reflection of the respect Thackeray commanded across the board, a galaxy of politicians, from allies to rivals, film stars to captains of industry were attendance. [Full Report].
While the death of Bal Thackeray has marked the end of an era that signified fiery oratory, right-wing views, and son of the soil crusades, the question being asked now is: Who will take his legacy ahead and occupy that political space? Sayli Udas and Shailesh Gaikwad report. Thackeray’s demise sends Mumbai into a sea of gloom
Mumbai-Pune expressway ranks first among few notable achievements that the maiden Shiv Sena-BJP govt had in its saffron kitty. Another signature performance was building 55 flyovers in the city under a watchful remote-control called Bal Thackeray. Dharmendra Jorereports. Bal Thackeray dead

Ban on Hindu Janajagruti Samiti Site will produce a Stronger and Unbeatable Hindu Media in Bharat.
History repeats itself. The days of suffocating British Raj is back again through a notorious Italian lady, Sonia Gandhi nee Sonia Antonio Maino, (the real Vatican representative) and her Indian counterparts by censoring Hindu Media in a gag. The present Congress led UPA (United Progressive Alliance) Govt. in India has banned numerous Hindu websites, blogs and pages in social media including http://hindujagruti.org the internet organ of Hindu Janajagruti Samiti, a famous Hindu organisation with world reputation. Pro Muslim and Pro Christian Congress Party in a mood to persecute the majority Hindus all along.
If we want to look back the repression in the British Raj, we see that the infamous “Gagging Act” of 1857 has been passed following the 1st Great Indian War against the British. It sought to regulate the establishment of printing presses and to restrain the circulation of printed mater. All presses had to have a license from the government. No distinction was made between publications in English and other regional languages. The Act also held that no printed material impugning the motives of the British Raj, tending to bring it hatred and contempt and exciting unlawful resistance to its orders. When the British Government found that the Gagging Act was not potent enough to repress all Nationalist sentiments, it went on to create a more forcible law, designed in part by Sir Alexander Arbuthnot and Sir Ashley Eden, Lieutenant Governor of Bengal. In the course of time, the Vernacular Press Act was passed in 1878 under the Governor Generalship and Viceroyalty of Lord Lytton, for ‘better control” of Indian language newspapers. The purpose of the Act was to control the printing and circulation of seditious material, calculated to produce disaffection, which was already present, against the British Government in India in the minds of the masses.
So far, thirty five vernacular papers in Bengal, including the Amrita Bazar Patrika, the editor of which was one Mahatma Sisir Kumar Ghose. Sir Ashley Eden summoned him and offered to contribute to his paper regularly, if he allowed what he published to go under scanner by Sir Ashley’s office first. Ghose refused, and remarked that “there ought to be at least one honest journalist in the land.” The Vernacular Press Act might be said to have grown from this incident. About the time the Act was passed, Sir Ashley remarked in a speech that forty five seditious writings published in fifteen different vernacular papers were presented before him before the Act was finalized. The Vernacular Press Act stated that any magistrate or Commissioner of Police had the authority to call upon any printer or publisher of a newspaper to enter into a bond, undertaking not to print a certain kind of material, and confiscate any printed mater it deemed objectionable. The affected party could not seek redress in a court of law. General threats to the Indian language press were these:
1. Any attempt to subvert the functioning of democratic institutions.
2. Agitations and violent incidents.
3. False allegations against British authorities or individuals.
4. Attempts at endangering law and order to disturb the normal functioning of the state.
5. Threats to internal stability.
Any one or more of the above were punishable by law. No redress could be sought in any court in the land.
In such a way of violation of jurisprudence and toeing the nature of democracy, the Britishers banned most of the Nationalist news papers and periodicals and also proscribed the writings of Vivekananda, Tilak, Aurobinda, Subhas, Savarkar and so on to curb on the struggle for freedom prior to our Independence in 1947.
Those black days are overlapping in a situation of semi-emergency now in Bharat (India), when the present heirs of those colonial authorities are repeating the same thing by banning Hindu Media to dismantle the unachieved Struggle for Hindu Freedom in Bharat. The corrupt Congress or the UPA is shameless. The so called social interlocutors and the media magnets are also magnificently malafide in nature. So, we must condemn all of them with our utmost resentments.
As per reports the Govt in India has banned over 300 sites, blogs and pages, most of them are managed by Hindu individuals and organisations, without giving any intimation to the site owners. It is told that this ban has been made upon precautionary or preventative measures to check the Assam aftermath. But, there is hardly any Hindu retaliation yet in any corner of India except Assam, so that we may collect any evidence as a proof in connection with any repercussion generated from any Hindu site. But, most of the active Hindu sites are banned and the reactionary Muslim sites are allowed for the subversive activities against our Country and its people.
Those who are thinking that the ban on Hindu websites is effective on Hindu mainstream of life and Hindu activities, they are idiots enough. After banning the HINDUJAGRUTI SITE, hundreds of blogs and pages have erupted their pure dedication of Hindu Journalism as a supplementary to the HINDUJAGRUTI WEBSITE. And this can be a landmark to start a strong Hindu Media to replace the conventional Secular Media run by the Arab and Christian money power. So, a strong Hindu media is also an urgent need of the hours to kneel down the media menace of the secularists and to nullify the Cyber Jihad waged against India by the Mullahs, as well.
We must enter now into building a strong Hindu Media in this critical juncture to knock down the anti national and anti Hindu ‘Secular Media’ which is most dangerous than anything.
Ban on Hindu Jagruti Site will produce a Stronger and Unbeatable Hindu Media in Bharat.
Jayatu Jayatu Hindu Rashtram!
