Reader?s Forum

Hindus in Malaysia approach UN for help (Organiser, 18-3-2007); Your agonising report, depicting demolition of Hindu temples in Malaysia, is suffice to conclude how Muslim-dominated countries are embracing fundamentalism and bigotry. In Islam, ?idolatry is an abominable sin? (Q31.13). Demolition of temples and breaking of idols is a pious and rewarding religious act. ?The idolaters along with their idols are fuel of hell? (Q 31.98 100). ?He that worships other gods besides Allah shall be forbidden paradise and shall be cast into fire of hell? (Q5.72). There is a commandment of Allah to the faithful??Fight against them until idolatry is no more and Allah?s religion reigns supreme? (Q2.193). Muslim invaders, conquerors and rulers who demolished and broke countless temples and idols all over India also repeatedly asserted they had performed their religious obligation for the interest of Islam. The national religion of Malaysia is Islam, therefore Hindus being kafir have to face such humiliation and degradation. Crying to UN for help is of no avail. Pakistan is heading to be declared as Hinduless country and Bangladesh is also following the same path. Has UN cared for Kashmiri Pandits? Only solidarity of Hindus all over the world can be effective for the redressal of their agony. It is up to Hindus to justify their worthiness and love for their brethren.

Is Hindu vote bank feasible? (Organiser, 25-3-2007); Thanks to Organiser for its special issue on the feasibility of Hindu vote bank and giving different opinions on the subject. While many writers have supported Hindu vote bank, some have opposed it. Among the latter, Shri N. Kunju?s ?Possible, but not desirable? takes the cake. His first assertion that Jinnah advanced the theory that religion formed the basis of a nation and put up the demand of Pakistan for the Muslims is factually wrong. Besides religion, Jinnah claimed that the Muslims have different social customs, different language and literature, different history; they neither inter-dine nor inter-marry with Hindus and that is why Muslims and Hindus could not make one nation. Shri Kunju?s fear seems to be that if Hindus also make a vote bank, it will make India a Hindu state, whose policy would be ?Hindu first?. The answer is provided by Shri Ram Gopal?s article which concludes: ?Only a Hindu state can ensure a true secular polity in which people of all faiths can live with equal honour as they did in the Vijaynagar empire under Hindu rulers of the South, Shivaji?s kingdom in Maharashtra and Maharaja Ranjit Singh?s in the Punjab.? Even otherwise, there are over 50 Muslim states, which follow the policy of ?Muslim first? and over hundred Christian states, which go by the policy of ?Christian first?. What is wrong if there will be one Hindu state (India), whose policy would be ?Hindu first??

I was delighted to go through the special issue of Organiser. Many leading writers have put appropriately their thoughts on either side of the issue. I have been working on an economic model for bringing in economic equality among all citizens of this great country. Our Constitution has no provision for such an equality despite best efforts made by the late Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar at the time of preparing the Constitution. I strongly feel that political agenda should not get mixed up at this stage with Hindutva theme since capturing political power is the most important aspect at present to achieve the ultimate objectives of Hindu society. Economic agenda would certainly help us to do this in view of the present chaotic economic conditions prevailing not in India but across the world.

Heartiest congratulations for the excellent issue. Seeing it packaged with excellent contents written by yourself and various others, I can visualise the impact it will make. However, to achieve the maximum possible effect, I suggest you arrange for selling the issue through a large network of newspaper vendors and bookstalls, including railway stations at major cities and metros; free distribution of more than one copy to all public libraries will also help spread the message. And I do hope that there will be a multi-lingual version of the English edition. Whatever your constraints, please do try to implement these suggestions.

The views expressed in the editorial are well versed and taken. But I would like to say that the objective of the editorial cannot not be achieved, at least in the near future, unless something drastic happens. Based on caste, language, income groups, regions, colour, Hindus have been divided vertically. Even though all the political parties in India (except some fascist Muslim parties) have Hindus as their leaders, they care nothing for the religion and care for themselves. In the South, Tamil Nadu has the highest number of temples in the country and people are very much Hindus. But majority of them vote for DMK and AIADMK. Why? Because they have no other choice. Same thing is witnessed in Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka. Any political party believing in itself as the true representatives of Hindus should go for it and it should not seek other parties support for power. Parties representing majority of this nation should introspect and come out with a sole aim of protecting the majority and the nation.

I read the editorial with great interest. After reading the editorial, I am really proud as a swayamsevak and a well-wisher of Organiser. My best wishes for the success of Organiser.

For the first time since its inception in 1864, the Nevada Assembly heard Hindu prayers in Sanskrit at the opening of its 74th session. Is this not a matter of pride for us in India, the land of Vedas and Upanishads? We should, at the same time, be ashamed of our dwindling reverence for our own religion. Rahul Gandhi?s contention that had a member of Nehru-Gandhi clan been at the helm of affairs, Babri Masjid would not have been demolished on December 6, 1992 is entirely hypothetical. What is not hypothetical but sheer truth is that Vedas, Upanishads, Vande Mataram and everything that is Indian have systematically been destroyed ever since India?s freedom all because of Nehru-Gandhi clan and its sordid mania for pseudo-secularism.

I just saw your editorial in the special issue of Organiser. I was very pleased and excited because by a sheer coincidence I too happen to have completed a long and detailed blueprint on ?how exactly? that lofty objective can actually be accomplished on ground. My personal conviction is that it can be done within only five to ten years? period from the time the process is begun.

Creating a Hindu vote bank means to tell Hindus that they are Hindu not just because they worship Ram, but with Ram in the heart, they need to triumph like Ram over the evil.

I read with avid interest different article under the broad caption ?Is Hindu vote bank feasible?? It is clear that fanatic Islamists owe their unity to hatred and aversion to non-Muslims. But Hinduism does not preach hatred or aversion to non-Hindus. But Hindus can be rallied against Islamic trans-nationalism to create a Hindu vote bank.

The editorial and articles by different writers are thought provoking. Hindus lived as slaves for more than one thousand years. Who is the worst enemy of Hindus? Hindu himself is the worst enemy of Hindu. We don?t mix up with our own people. We do not have understanding of our own people. Every Hindu wants and strives for moksha and mukti at the cost of nation and religion. He is not bothered about his nation and religion. If at all, only a miracle can create a Hindu vote bank.

You have done well in trying to stimulate the ?dead? soul of the Hindus. With what result, I cannot say, but you should keep it up. That is the only way. I am surprised that some of the writers have nothing new to say. I liked your editorial for its insights and the piece of Shri Kanchan Gupta. You are right in saying that Hindus have to survive and dominate their land. If these cannot be assured by our Constitution, then we may as well all welcome Islam. For, what is the point in calling oneself a Hindu when we cannot defend our right to remain as Hindus? Are you aware of the fact that we cannot write our history anymore? The Muslims will decide how it is written. You are right that the English press is largely responsible for the western orientation of this country. Our people indeed do think that the western civilisation is a glorious one. If they think so, then they are quite right in admiring it and looking down on our civilisation. Again, who is at fault? Do we write a column on the western civilisation? We do not. I am convinced about one thing that we Hindus have something to give to the world. Only few are aware of it. The eastern thinkers can see it at once, but not our illiterate men. So it is our duty to survive. Only Hinduism and Buddhism can contribute something to the human civilisation. This is what we have to tell the Hindus.

A toss between BJP, SP and BSP (Organiser, 18-3-2007); We should fight the system of corruption. Mulayam Singh Yadav is just a part of this system who in 1989 and afterwards took UP downwards to 24th place. The state has become known as Ulta Pradesh in India. For good governance it is necessary to improve the bureaucracy. In the entire Uttar Pradesh it is bureaucracy that is looking for its own good. And unless a major change is brought about in Uttar Pradesh no system can give you good governance. Amitabh Bachchan is misusing his image by working as a partyman of Samajwadi party. It would have been better if he had taken an official post in the party so that the people could have identified him as a Samajwadi party worker/neta.

The poll show has begun in India?s most populous state?Uttar Pradesh. Besides the over-riding factors of caste and religion, certain regional considerations would also come into play in areas like western UP, where Ajit Singh?s Rashtriya Lok Dal commands a good following. No sooner had RLD deserted Mulayam barely two months ago, after sharing the fruit of power for three and a half years, it was amply clear that he would join hands with the Congress. And having failed to rise to the occasion to take on political rivals on its own in UP, Congress has in any case been desperate to strike an alliance.

Of late Chief Minister Mulayam Singh Yadav has been desperate to ensure that he does not lose his grip over the state?s 17 per cent Muslim votes. A series of measures were announced over the past four months to woo Muslims, who seemed to be drifting away from the man who had once earned the sobriquet of ?Maulana Mulayam?. Sadly UP?s backwardness, poor industrialisation, slow and sloppy economic growth, illiteracy and the terribly lacking healthcare system do not seem to be on the agenda of most of the political parties. The state?s backwardness could be gauged from a few basic facts?70 per cent of UP?s mothers deliver their offspring in their own dilapidated and dingy homes; 72 out of every 1000 newborns die almost instantaneously and 35 per cent of its whopping 18 crore population goes to bed without two square meals a day.
