Good write up:
An article on ?Hindu Minority of Bangladesh and Sri Lanka? by P.C.K. Raja (Organiser 26-9-2004) gives some very important data and the sorry state of affairs of Hindus in various countries, including India. Raja has questions that ?why are we (Hindu community and Indian government) reluctant to our suffering brethren?? The reply is very simple. The Hindus of India, who are not capable of protecting themselves in their own home, cannot be expected to look after their brethren in other countries. Hindus in India are so stupid that they still worship Gandhi as Father of the Nation, who converted their homeland?and truncated India, thanks to Jinnah and Britishers, a homeland meant for Hindus?into a dharamshala or an inn, and cheated the Hindus at every step.
Raja expects Bangladeshi Hindus to fight like Sri Lankan Tamils for their rights and existence. He forgets that Pakistan, including Bangladesh, was created as an exclusive homeland for Muslims of undivided India. This two-nation theory and Partition of India was accepted by the Congress who represented the Hindus, the Muslim League who represented the Muslims, and the Akalis who represented the Sikhs. Thus Hindus and Sikhs have no right to exist in Pakistan or Bangladesh. Thus Pakistan was perfectly right in expelling all the Hindus and Sikhs by force. But Gandhi and Nehru did not allow Muslims from India to go to Pakistan, although Jinnah had suggested exchange of population in no uncertain terms a number of times. It is the legal and moral duty of India and Indian Hindus to accept all the Hindus from Bangladesh as Indian citizens, and gracefully settle them in India. In fact, the Hindus from Bangladesh have the legal right to come and settle in India on the basis of the Independence Act of July 1947, passed by the British Parliament. Gandhi and Nehru, by preventing Hindus from coming to India from Pakistan or Bangladesh did great injustice to them, for which these leaders deserve condemnation.

Dr R. Brahmachari'sarticle ?India, The Mother of Western Civilisation?. (Organiser, Oct., 10.2004) is timely and needs attention of the powers-that-be. Some such information has also been given in H.G. Well'sbook. There is also need to undertake a serious study of this subject. But one thing that has been troubling me is why this process stopped and why we have lost all contacts with these areas. Another point that may be mentioned in this connection is that there has also been migration from India to the south-east countries including Indonesia, Thailand, Combodia and Laos about 2000 years ago. In all these places the Hindu civilisation is still alive in various forms including temples, culture and even language. While all over the world, people feel pride in their past, in India we denigrate our past.

The latest Census has provided two options to Hindus: first produce or perish and second, observe family planning and perish.

Ved Rahi is wrong:
In the introductory para ?Interviews with Savarkar Film Maker?, (Organiser, Sept. 26, 2004) Anil Nair says that Shri Ved Rahi??made a full-length feature film on Savarkar without even the elementary financial backing of the producer. People from all over the country contibuted… These excerpts from this interview are toally false. Shri Ved Rahi was paid a very good amount for his work. All the expenditure regarding TA/DA all over India, Andamans, UK and other places was paid by the Pratishthan. The ?Dream of Veer Savarkar picture? was of late Sudhir?Babuji?Phadke. He had collected crores of rupees, pounds and dollars by his hard work, the Geet Ramayan. Shri Babasaheb Purandare also contributed by delivering lectures on Shivaji Maharaj. I am in contact with this project since last 10 years as vice president and I know that Shri Ved Rahi had not collected any donation for the film.

Hats off Organiser:
It is nice to see the improving quality of Organiser. We must have a column or pages for the youth, children and few pages of articles by writers like Dr Koenard Elst, Sitaram Goel (he has written genuine history of India), Veer Savarkar and many other writers who tells the historical truth of India. These should be a common fixture in the form of continuous serials. I really want this paper to become a household item for all Hindus.

Educate the readers:
Your thin single space printing is disgusting. Shyam Khosla, M.V. Kamath, Rajendra Prabhu and you write well but much of it goes unread. Your ?Readers Forum? and ?London Post? have not much to educate the readers.

Hiding the facts:
This is with reference to A.T.M. Anwar'sletters published in Organiser (15-8, 29-8 and 19-9-2004). To change ?Dar-ul-Harb? into ?Dar-ul-Islam? is also one of the tasks of the Jehad. Though the Muslims alone did not divide India in 1947; the Muslim League demanded Partition first, then the British ruler wanted Partition of India, the Communists supported and finally the Congress admitted it. Therefore, to explain this otherwise is an effort to conceal the facts of history.

A.T.M. Anwar is truly a defender of the faith, but it appears he is not adequately armed (Organiser, 10-10-2004). The word ?Prophet? was ?Allah? (it was one of the those things which happen in the press). Anwar complains that he quotes no authority on Islam. Is there an authority on Islam? Why can'the speak up against terrorism? Did I say that ?killing of infidels? is a state policy today among Muslim nations? This is an example of ?misquoting? that ?defenders? often indulge in.

The Congress-led coalition government'smain objective is to undo what the NDA government did in last six years. Take the case of Arjun Singh, whose main aim is to undo what Dr Murli Manohar Joshi did in education curriculam. After the advice of experts he changed, the outlook of our education and tried to teach our students the ancient values of our education freeing it from the clutches of the so-called secularists for whom anything based on our culture has been a taboo. Railway Minister, Lalu Yadav is only defaming the ministers of Vajpayee-led government. There are also ministers who defame patriots like Veer Savarkar, and leave no opportunity in defaming the RSS and linking it with the murder of Mahatma Gandhi.

Settle the pending cases:
On September 28 there was a discussion on Doordarshan that more than two crore cases are pending in the lower courts. The present strength of judges can only dispose of the cases filed every year and the number of pending cases is dragging on for years. Many people avoid going to the court due to the long delay in disposal of their cases. They prefer to go to Mafia for the settlement of their disputes. This is a very painful and serious situation in our country and the government should urgently do something to solve this problem. About 65 per cent cases out of these two crore pending cases are criminal. In this situation the condition of law and order is bound to deteriorate further. If the law and order goes, then everything goes and no democracy can survive.

The Zee News service exposed the attitude of indifference and insult towards our history and inheritance. The memorial to our first President, Bharat Ratna Dr Rajendra Prasad lies in a dilapilated condition at Patna. Very valuable scriptures pertaining to this illustrious son of India are rotting. A nation reveals itself not by the number of men it produces, but by the number of men it honours. Furthermore, we do not seem to have learnt any lesson from not honouring and protecting our historical treasures. The Education Minister of Bihar was insulting himself when he revealed that the government was not aware of the situation.

Security of Hyderabad:
Pakistan'sISI agents are prowling in Hyderabad. Pakistan has not ceased push terrorists into Kashmir across the LoC. All these wreckers are getting shelter in India. A few days ago the government of Andhra Pradesh was inclined not to celebrate the Ganesh Utsav for fear of inciting communal riots. Pakistan is avowedly not friendly to India; there are enough Muslims in India for purpose of marriages and for other social needs. Hyderabad which is already a safe haven for the ISI agents, their accomplices and co-host Jehadi terrorists, can ill afford more Indo-Pakistan travel unless it is in the nature of true trade and business enterprises. In such perilous circumstances, the Chief Minister'srequest to the High Commissioner of Pakistan to open a visa office in Hyderabad was not a wise move; it is against the security of India.

The Hindus are not united and those who are united, they are in minority. History says that Hindus have been ruled by minorities and the same history is repeating now. In India the Congress president Sonia Gandhi is a Christian. One can call this a wonder of the world.

Draconian than Fema:
A new section 277-A introduced in the Income-Tax Act by Finance (No. 2) Act, 2004 provides for rigorous imprisonment for a maximum period of three years even if no concealment is proved, merely because the accounts, etc. are wrong. Even in the case of FEMA, no such criminal action is provided for and the FEMA was brought in to replace FERA by making the FEMA offences civil in nature. But the Income-Tax Act continues to be draconian in nature.

Indians have lots of problems with the Muslim: Hindus are often killed by Muslims. Religious building of Hindus are often put on fire by Islamic terrorists. The religious conflict between Hinduism and Islam fuels conflict between India and Pakistan… The history of Islam is paved with lots of conflicts with all religions. Read the Koran if you want to understand why… Palestinians are not the only sufferers from the conflict with Israel. Israelis makes military service mandatory to protect their country, defence costs skyrocket destroying the economy, citizens constantly live in fear, are often afraid to go to a supermarket or a restaurant or to take a bus.

Learn from the past:
Prithviraj Chauhan trusted Mohammed Ghori 16 times. Every time he was defeated, Ghori pleaded for safe retreat with the promise that he won'tinvade again. The 17th time Pridhviraj had to pay with his life. But Shivaji was much more wiser because he had the counsel of a spiritual leader, Samarth Ramdas. He parlayed in person with Afzal Khan who equipped himself to kill Shivaji by surprise. Shivaji outwitted and killed Afzal Khan instead. Successive Prime Ministers of India like Nehru and Lal Bahadur trusted Pakistan'srulers to our great grief. Indiraji placed the highest trust of all in the word of Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and released over 85,000 Pakistani prisoners of war on an unwritten promise of future good conduct and peaceful settlement with India. Vajpayee also trusted the Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharief and the latter duly back-stabbed us at Kargil. And now the magnanimous Manmohan Singh, perhaps under guidance from his selector, says that he has no problem in trusting Musharraf. And so we have the repetition of history. The great philosopher, historian Geroge Santhayana said: ?Those who don'tlearn from the mistakes of the past are condemned to repeat them.?
