Through the ages, attempts to unite Hindus have always failed. While they set standards for an orderly, peaceful society, their high moral values are ineffective; even detrimental to the cause of Hindu survival.
This is the biggest problem Hindus face today. They get stuck into a set of moral values that they feel obligated to embrace, even when faced with an existential threat, equally as in war and in politics. The desire to be Mahaan (great) overrides even the basic survival instinct, proving to be the main cause of fragmented Hindus, leading to the demise of civilisation.
In his desire to be “Mahaan”, the Hindu neither understands his enemy nor does he understand the rules of conflict. History glorifies the deeds of Hindu kings, but almost all of these “deeds”, these very crucial decisions actually led to their downfall and utter destruction of their families, kingdoms, and subjects. What is important to note is that while those decisions perhaps granted the king a line of glory in history, it also ensured the victory of the invader and reduced the king’s subjects to being a conquered race, sold as slaves, and subjected to untold cruelty and ruin.
Ghori Betrays His Benefactor
One of the starkest examples of the bad results of upholding such virtues is Prithviraj Chauhan defeating Mohammed Ghori 17 times and letting him go 17 each time. When you see an attacker repeatedly attacking you, do you not wipe out the enemy so that he is not able to attack again, costing your resources, precious lives of your soldiers and pose a risk to your existence? Chauhan’s arrogance in the form of his “moral values” prevented him from recognising the threat Ghori posed to him, his family and his subjects. Result? Despite swearing on the Quran not to attack each time he lost, Ghori attacked repeatedly, won the 18th time and obliterated Prithviraj Chauhan. Blinded him, tortured him and killed him. Gifted his daughters to Khwaja Moinuddin Chisti (an agent of war who posed as a sufi “saint”, betrayed Chauhan and helped Ghori defeat him) who, after outraging modesty of fun with the girls, sold them off in the then slave markets of Afghanistan. And thus, Chauhan’s legacy was wiped out from existence, aside of the passing mention history makes of his “moral values”.
In his arrogance and overpowering need to be “Mahaan”, Chauhan did not understand his enemy at all. If Chauhan had recognised Ghori’s intent in the second or third attempt and wiped Ghori out when he was defeated, he would have reigned for many years more; saved his subjects from the atrocities that followed his destruction. But no, he put his “moral values” first.
Hindus in India need to rise above their confused set of moral values. By all means, keep your moral values, but keep it only for your community, applicable only to people who agree to play by those rules. If you want to survive, those who do NOT play by your rules, you HAVE to adapt accordingly. And you survive only if you win
Another example is Raja Dahir. Someone about whom we know next to nothing about, since Romila Thapar and Irfan Habib gang of “historians” decided to omit from their version of “history” this powerful, successful Hindu king who defeated the Mughals several times. But in the end, Raja Dahir fell victim to his own “moral values”. He decided to give shelter to a bunch of Mughal invaders who were fleeing from their Muslim opponents after a failed attempt at Khilafat (Khilafat is the establishment of an Islamic Caliphate). His sense of “Atithi devo bhava” was so strong that he failed to recognise the wrath of the Muslims that he would incur if he followed through with his act, which would endanger not only his kingdom and family but also his well-being. If he had given up those fugitives to Cassim who came after them, would he have been killed, his daughters raped and sold off to slavery. The victory of Islam over a large tract of the Indian subcontinent be written in the pages of history? But he didn’t, and he was. sparing Humayun Costly Mistake
And then we have Maharana Pratap. At Amarkot, when Humayun and his wife had come asking for help, had the great Maharana recognised his enemy, he could have ensured that Humayun never got away alive, ensuring there was no Akbar, Jahangir, Shahjahan or Aurangzeb. Although this is in hindsight, the basics of having the foresight to recognise Humayun as an enemy would have saved his people. Blinded by their set of moral values, Hindu kings lacked the ability to read their enemy as well as the rules of warfare.
Recently, Rohit Sardana, a pro-Hindu journalist, passed away due to COVID-19. The rank-and-file jihadis in India rejoiced, openly celebrated and wished more destruction on everyone who stood up against their Islamic jihad in India. Their moral values were never questioned by their own, for their book instructs them to kill their opponent wherever and in whichever situation they find them. So, they are merely following their set of rules. They do not care if the opponent dies with valour in a fair battle or dies in sleep or due to sickness. And they are the ones who have written the rules of this war.
Also, Danish Siddiqui, a self-certified Hindu hating jihadi journalist, was killed in Afghanistan by marauding Taliban terrorists. It was a case of mistaken identity, where they did not realise that Danish was actually ideologically one of their own. The Indian response was mixed. While one lot of Hindus were glad that a perverted jihadi monster who gleefully portrayed Hindu funeral pyres and expressed obvious pleasure over “vermin” being exterminated, there was this other lot of self-appointed moral police or “conscientious” Hindus who held their Hindu moral values aloft and immediately attacked all those celebrating. They derided them of celebrating Danish’s death—completely omitting the fact that it was one enemy less, and that is good news in a time when good news is scarce. They used the age-old argument, “if we celebrate, what is the difference between them and us”? The difference is simple. They through their celebration and laughter, will unite, get a consensus and morale boost, accumulate more hatred against Hindus, sharpening attacks, while we are divided amongst ourselves, one set flaunting and pontificating about their “moral values” and the other, totally confused at the attack from behind by those they thought were their own.
You can keep your morals, but not in the face of war. Your morals are applicable within your community, but not for those who refuse to be a part of your society or play by your rules. Remember, in this war; you do not write the rules. They have written the rules already. They refuse the concept of peaceful coexistence. They want to destroy you. If you refuse to play by those rules and insist on your moral values, you are only making certain of your defeat and complete destruction.
One of the starkest examples of the bad results of upholding such virtues is Prithviraj Chauhan defeating Mohammed Ghori 17 times and letting him go each time. When you see an attacker repeatedly attacking you, do you not wipe out the enemy so that he is not able to attack again, costing you resources, precious lives of your soldiers and pose a risk to your existence? Chauhan’s arrogance in the form of his “moral values” prevented him from recognising the threat Ghori posed to him, his family and his subjects
Rinkus and Ankits of this world are murdered simply because fell inlove with Muslim girls. No Muslim condemns their killing, no matter how heinous, how cruel or how unfair it is. Any Muslim abducts/rapes/forcibly convert a Hindu girl and then receives the same support from their community. We have seen this in the case of the Ghaziabad minor, for Priyanka Reddy, for dozens of other cases.
Leaving Hindus in the Lurch
But if a Hindu so much as refuses water to thirsty Muslim, he is immediately judged, convicted and sentenced by the “conscientious” Hindus. The incurable disease of “moral values” rears its head, and infighting commences. Suddenly a bunch of self-righteous armchair Prithviraj Chauhans, instead of rallying behind a Hindu who has dared to show his aggression, cut off all support to him and leave him on his own to defend his actions. Very quickly, that Hindu realises the futility of standing up for his community and fades away into oblivion. An opportunity of uniting, rallying together is lost. A possible leader is perhaps lost too.And then we moan about Hindus not being united.
So why should we not laugh at Danish’s death? This is a war of narratives. This is the death of an enemy, not one of our own. You refuse to play by the rules that have been written, you lose. It’s that simple.
Would you rather see your daughters and sisters raped and sold merely because you stuck to a set of misplaced values?
For that, indeed, is the question today.
The dismantling Hindutva conference in the US was another example of ‘Hindus’ hating Hindus. They by now truly believe it’s their ticket to a certified social media account by hating India, Modi and RSS!
If they want to survive, Hindus in India need to rise above their confused set of moral values. By all means, keep your moral values, but keep it only for your community, applicable only to people who agree to play by those rules. If you want to survive, those who do not play by your rules, you have to adapt accordingly. And you survive only if you win. Have you not heard Yogi Adityanath say “I will respect Muslims only as much Muslims respect me?”
What did you learn from that statement?
The opponent lives only for his community to ensure that Hindus are decimated, and his ideology reigns at all costs. He has the license provided by the book he goes by and enforced by his clerics to cheat you, steal from you, lie to you, rape your wife, daughters and sisters, to loot, and to kill. No humanity, no compassion, no Geneva convention.
In the face of that, if you depend upon the ideals of Ramayana to get you victory, you are massively mistaken. The ideals of Ramayana apply to your community, perhaps, not for these people. The role models of these people are cruel, perverted murderers like Aurangzeb.
So get out of this “holier than thou” mindset Hindus, this suicidal tendency of trying to be “mahaan” otherwise, in the coming years, Hindutva will exist only as a passing reference in history. Ghoris and Talibans will record their victory, and your daughters and sisters will be chained and sold in the slave markets of the future.
