Though Bharat'sHindu identity is being hammered and erased bit by bit every day, the Union Government'saffidavit filed before the Supreme Court in September 2007 rejecting the existence of Ram and Ram Sethu de-legitimised Hindu faith itself.
This affidavit is the latest ploy to demolish Hinduism the way other native religions and cultures have been wiped off in the world.
Though the affidavit was withdrawn after protests, it would never have been filed if truncated India i.e. Bharat had been proclaimed a Hindu Republic in 1947 as a logical consequence of India'spartition on religious basis, and creation of Pakistan as demanded by Muslims.
And why should Hindu majority Bharat and Nepal disown their Hindu identity when over a hundred Christian-majority countries are declared as Christian countries and 57 Muslim-majority countries are declared as Islamic countries?
Besides, why cannot Bharat, the birth place of Sanatan Dharma, commonly known as Hinduism, and having Hindu traditions since time immemorial be a Hindu Republic?
No more Pakistans
Pre-1947 situation which created Pakistan is being re-enacted in India through divisive ?communal budgeting? and through Sachar Commission and reservation for Muslims in government jobs though such measures are unconstitutional, and also unwarranted after the creation of Pakistan as demanded by Muslims.
To prevent the creation of more Pakistans on Bharat'ssoil, one must remember how Muslim League grabbed one-third of Bharat as Pakistan.
Bharat Varsh comprising of entire Indian sub-continent was Hindu land with zero Muslim population till 711 when Muhammad bin Qasim'sArab army attacked Sindh. Hindus lost Afghanistan in 987, and present day Pakistan and Bangladesh to Muslims in 1947. During the repeated Muslim attacks for a thousand years, Hindus kept on fighting valiantly to defend their Dharma and motherland.
After overthrow of Muslim rule, the British took over India from 1857 to 1947. Muslim League was formed in 1906, and demanded Pakistan for Muslims in 1940.
This is what Muhammad Ali Jinnah said in Lahore on 23rd March, 1940 while demanding Pakistan, a separate country for Muslims, comprising of Muslim majority areas in India:
?Hindus and Muslims belong to two different religions, philosophies, social customs, and literatures. ?.. and to two different civilisations. Hindus and Muslims derive their inspiration from different sources of history. They have different epics, different heroes and different episodes. Very often the hero of one is a foe of the other, and likewise their victories and defeats overlap. To yoke together two such nations under a single state, one as a numerical minority and the other as a majority, must lead to growing discontent, and the final destruction of any fabric that may be so built up for the government of such a state.?
Immediately after Muslim League demanded Pakistan and exchange of population, Dr. B.R. Ambedkar wrote his book ?Thoughts on Pakistan? in 1940 in which he held that creation of Pakistan would act as a ?settlement? of Hindu-Muslim conflict, and also held that exchange of Hindu-Muslim population must accompany the creation of Pakistan.
In 1945-46 elections, Muslims voted for creation of Pakistan.
Muslim League kept up the pressure, and in 1947 got a third of Bharat'sland as Pakistan comprising of West Pakistan and East Pakistan. In 1971, East Pakistan became Bangladesh while West Pakistan remained Pakistan. Both Pakistan and Bangladesh are Islamic Republics, and have driven out most of Hindus and Sikhs from their land.
However, most of Indian Muslims who had demanded Pakistan and exchange of population did not go to Pakistan. Rather, the present percentage of Muslim population in India is much higher than that in 1947.
Further, to plant one more Islamic country on Indian soil, Pak-Bangla combine has sent countless terrorists and crores of infiltrators into India.
Despite the Supreme Court'sjudgements delivered on July 12, 2005 and December 5, 2006 to deport infiltrators, the government has done nothing in this regard. Rather, more infiltrators are entering India through soft borders every day.
Secular Bharat is being battered and grabbed bit by bit by Pak-Bangla terrorists and infiltrators every day.
Logically, on India'sPartition on religious basis and creation of Pakistan for Muslims, Bharat should have been declared a Hindu republic. But surprisingly, Bharat was made a ?secular? country. However, in India, ?secularism? stands for anti-Hinduism. In secular India, Hinduism is being persistently attacked and demolished.
With each passing day, India is being made more Islamic and more Christian and less Hindu.
Countless Pak-Bangla terrorists and infiltrators bent upon creating one more Muslim country on Bharat'ssoil, genocide and eviction of Hindus from Kashmir, global missionary organisations Christianising India, government control over Hindu temples whereas no mosque or church is covered by such control, special privileges to non-Hindus under Article 30, special rights to Muslim majority Jammu & Kashmir under Article 370, de-Hinduisation of education and history and banishment of Sanskrit from education, denigration of Hindus and Hinduism by most of media, and provision of Haj subsidy though none of 57 Islamic countries gives any such subsidy are just a few perversities of secular India.
Similarly, late Pope John Paul II'soutrageous call to convert Asia to Christianity was given in secular India'scapital in 1999.
Moreover, since secular India did not help Hindu Nepal, combined might of Maoists, Christian missionaries and Pakistan'sISI divested Nepal of its Hindu identity in 2006.
Since sham ?secularism? and secular India have been a disaster for Hindus, only the Hindu Bharat can protect Hindus, Hindu Dharma, Hindu heritage, and Hindu identity of Bharat. Besides, since secular India never helps Hindus in distress either in India or abroad, Hindu Bharat would be a source of strength for the Hindus worldwide.
Moreover, only an assertive Hindu Bharat can liberate Hindus from tyranny of fake secularism; and restore Hindus? fighting spirit and self-esteem. Hindu Bharat will also remove enactments and laws which discriminate against Hindus.
And there should be no apprehension, whatsoever, about Hindu Bharat. Since Hinduism is all embracing, Hindu republic of Bharat will give justice to all and appease none. In Hindu Bharat, there will be one law and one nation; and no distinction of majority and minority, and no discrimination, whatsoever, against any community. And all citizens in this Bharat will have equal rights. Such a Bharat will also dismantle fake-secularism, and liberate the nation from countless terrorists and crores of Pak-Bangla infiltrators.
And Hindu Bharat will remember M.A. Jinnah'sabove-mentioned ?Two Nations? theory expounded in Lahore in 1940, and take pre-emptive action to prevent creation of more Pakistans on Bharat'ssoil.
Justice and equity demand that Bharat should be declared a Hindu Republic. It is a logical, laudable and achievable goal which will boost Hindu morale. Apart from protecting Bharat'sHindu identity, Hindu Bharat will transform the present imbecile India into an assertive nation. No one can object to a Hindu Bharat when the world has over a hundred Christian and 57 Islamic countries. All pro-Hindu individuals and organisations should join hands to transform India into a Hindu Republic of Bharat by all peaceful, constitutional and lawful means.
And this endeavour will certainly succeed as Atharva Veda proclaims, ?Kritam may dakhshine haste, jayo may savya aahitah? (effort is in my right hand, and victory in my left).
