Many birds, beautiful/large animals, many species of useful trees, even many mountains and water sources went extinct over the ages. Even River Saraswati vanished. Some say, pollution; some say, evolution and some say natural calamities were responsible for all this loss. Here, a more serious extinction seems to be on the anvil. And it is of Hindus! Well, whenever we all say such a thing, the so-called pseudo secular cynic’s blah, ‘Communal!’ When from the mother Earth in many areas and in the recent history from many nations, Hindus ‘vanished’, these cynics posed a calculated silence. Hindus in Afghanistan, Iran, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Uganda and recently in Kashmir vanished; they did not evaporate in the thin air; they were hassled/killed in ethnic cleansing/hoarded out with terror and threats/forcibly converted.
There is method in the systematic growth of Muslims in Bharat; it is not a mere accident. See the figures:
1951: Hindus 84.1%, (30.36 crore), Muslims 9.8% (3.54 crore). The total population of Bharat in 1951 was 36 crore 10 Lakh 88,090 (Rounded figure one can take as 36.11 crore). Now per 2011 Census the population is 121crore and the growth of Muslim population has almost doubled while the growth of Hindu population is down.
What is the socio-economic significance of such lop sided growth in the population of Muslims and the colossal slide of Hindu population? In the Electoral Democracy like that of Bharat, the demography plays a major role. For ruling, it is not necessary to have 50% votes; but even with 33% one can rule. When it comes to pocket voting (area voting), even 18% to 25% votes change the electoral balance. In the nation, where most socio-economic decisions depend on the Governments, those who control the vote balance matter the most. In simple words, just because Hindus are 79% and Muslims 14%, does not mean that Hindus will have any say on the polity and the policy decisions. Merely saying that Hindus should stand as ONE and vote as ONE as Hindus, will not help. This is must, yes, and along with this awareness, some concrete steps are must too to halt the disturbed equilibrium in Bharat’s demography. Help EACH Hindu in progress and also in preserving the Hindu culture as well as curtail Islamic population onslaught.
As we always say, ‘Change in the Demography is the change in Nation’. How so? It is evident from Afghanis-tan, Iran, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Kashmir, etc. First they increase the population, then using that strength they persecute Hindus in many ways and then the nation changes to an Islamic nation.
The worse and direct socio-economic impact is seen on the safety and security of Hindus i.e. the family, land, properties, religious places, employment, trade and other businesses. Using the vote-bank, they compel the electoral system to give them benefits in education, jobs, loans, properties and many such socio-economic aspects.
Hindus have shrunk over the ages only to Bharat as a nation and are scattered in some limited nations as a vulnerable minority. This is a serious calamity and the immediate concrete steps are needed to protect Hindus and Bharat. First and foremost, the Uniform Civil Code is a must. There cannot be separate laws for people in Bharat. When we say this, Muslims laugh and say, ‘we say the same and we want Sharia as the only one law’. This is what ISIL (ISIS) says and this is what our enemy neighbours Pakistan and the likes act upon. Sending the floods of Bangladeshi infiltrators to Bharat, then the infiltration of internationally infamous Rohingya Muslims and the 1990-91 Kashmir ethnic cleansing of Hindus by Muslims… all confirm their intentions to rule Bharat soon as an Islamic state. Bharat is at a weak ground as it is surrounded by the countries that are supported by Muslim Umma that is over 80 Islamic countries. No Muslim country is ever alone; it is always supported by the mighty Muslim population around the world. These nations too have followed the same model of ‘increase the population, attack/loot/terrorise and control.
Bharat withstood 400+ years of Muslim rule but with a permanently damaged culture and surroundings. Now, if we do not stand up against the ‘Population Jihad’, Bharat will soon be an Islamic state. As said, apart from the Uniform Civil Code, which is strongly recommended by the Constitution; it is also must to strictly implement Two Children norm irrespective of the political pressures. Rather than subsidising each birth of a Muslim kid, it is must that after two children, there has to be the strictest curb. Perhaps a punishable criminal offence and stopping the ration, jobs, educational facilities will streamline the population facilitation towards better development.
Another fast action is must and that is kicking out over 300,000 Bangladeshi infiltrators who have set themselves firmly in the North-East of Bharat. They do NOT belong here. They have no right to use our resources and fleece us using their vote Jihad. The strong socio-political will surely will achieve the process of fast sending them out of Bharat.
If we take a glance at the comparative figures of Hindu and Muslim populations since 1901 to 1991 and also between 1951–2011, we will clearly understand the dire state that we are in. See also the figures of Pakistan and Bangladesh. In Bangladesh alone Hindus were 33.9 % in 1901, in 1951 Hindus were 22.8 % and in 1991 Hindus were only 11.3 %. Hindus down and Muslims up. Muslims were 66%, in 1951 Muslims were 76.8% and in 1991 they were 88.3%. Bharat has an example of ‘Population Jihad’ just across the borders! The latest Census figures are a wake-up call. Open the eyes fast rather than living in the dream world.
See the comparative figures of Pakistan: In 1901 (In the area that is now Pakistan) Hindus were 15.9%, Muslims were 83.8%, in 1951, Hindus were 1.5% and Muslims were 97.11%! Figures in the recent history and also the tenets of the Majhab that has been creating such havoc all over the world are an eye-opener for Bharat. Others lost; Bharat yet survives. Not very long if we do not wake-up and act rather than doing appeasement and terming it as a strategy. No strategy of appeasement works when it comes to ‘Islamic Population Jihad’ and the facts are evident. They have their own game plans and rules and they vehemently follow them.
As UK’s then PM Margaret Thatcher once said – They use our liberal values against us to finish us. Here in Bharat, they have been using our democratic values to politically, socially and economically finish us systematically. Mostly using ‘Me Victim’ theory. When it is convenient to them, they claim that they are the ‘poor, underprivileged minority’ and when it comes to do ‘Vote Jihad’ they claim that they are ‘the second largest majority’. There is no point in trying to play in their hands to ‘look good’ in the western world or to the so-called pseudo seculars; our nation’s total well-being depends on the safe and prosperous survival of Hindus who are at this moment a majority but the fast thinning majority. Strong resolve to immediately tackle the alarming increase in Muslim population will safeguard Bharat and therefore, ensure total Hindu well-being.
