The discovery of a massive but desecrated Shivalinga in the Gyanvapi Mandir in Varanasi on May 16, 2022, that too established firmly in the direct line of sight of the vigraha of “Nandi”, the venerable divine Bull of Bhagavan Shiva, sent both waves of devotional joy as well as that of outrage amongst Hindus, not just across the length and breadth of Bharat but across the world.
In an ongoing and intense court battle, the Hindu squad spearheaded by the father-son duo of Hari Shankar Jain and his son Vishnu Shankar Jain were fighting a legal battle against the illegal Muslim occupation of the mandir.
Simultaneously, there is another pitched battle being fought to wrest control of the sacred Hindu mandir that belongs to Hindus. This was the critical battle of narratives fought in news studios and social media where the mullahs and maulanas hurled the choicest of invectives at Bhagavan Shiva and launched a meme-storm, mocking the Shivalinga with the vilest of imageries.
The outrage accompanied the obvious sentiment of joy as news came in that the Muslims were desecrating it with the practice of “Wazoo”, which essentially meant the washing of their feet and hands in the very place where the mighty Shivalinga is established.
Desecration of the Shivalinga
This dirty practice of Wazoo at the very place where rest Mahadev had been going on since the Islamic terrorist and invader Aurangzeb destroyed the sacred Gyanvapi Mandir and converted whatever remained of it into a mosque in the late 17th century. It shall be deemed that Muslims knew all along that the Shivalinga exists. Yet, all through, while they kept chanting their hypocritical and specious sermons of “Ganga-Jamuni Tezheeb”, the Gyanvapi Shivalinga was continuously desecrated deliberately. We know through history that since the day Islam was born, destruction of Hindu mandir is a rite of passage for the marauding, raping, looting, plundering barbarian Islamists.
There are numerous examples of Hindu mandir within Bharat that attest to such destruction and misappropriation by the Islamists. According to lawyer Sai Deepak, who sprung to prominence in the ‘Sabarimala’ case in the Supreme Court, the erstwhile staunch Communist and Naxal ideologue Sita Ram Goel (who had lived and breathed Communism till the hypnosis was shattered and he transformed into a supporter of the cause of revival and protection of Hindu Sanskriti) mentions that there are 40,000 Hindu temples that have been converted into mosques in his book “Hindu Temples – What Happened to Them”.
In one such debate on a news channel, Dr Taslim Rehmani, President of the Muslim Political Council of India, was the one who provoked the spokesperson by mocking the Shivalinga repeatedly. He is yet to face legal action or an equal reaction from Hindus. The BJP spokesperson, who had had enough of listening to the repeated and gratuitous insults to Mahadev, couldn’t bear it any longer and responded in kind with a factual statement about the Islamic Prophet. The factual statement made by the spokesperson in fact finds mention in and therefore has been quoted from Hadith 70, Book 67, of “Sahih al-Bukhari 5134” i.e. in a bona fide text of Islamic Law itself. The same statement has been made openly by many others amongst the Islamic community worldwide, including Islamic ideologue and terror propagator Zakir Naik in videos available on the internet.
The community of Islamists that were hitherto gradually losing the debate, the narrative and their grip on the Gyanvapi Mandir, as news of court-sanctioned fact-finding surveys were laying bare the fundamentally Hindu origin of the ancient Shiva Mandir, conveniently and quickly forgot their own anti-Hindu serial offences in the form of insults and provocations they had been inflicting on Bhagavan Shiva.
Instead, spotting an opportunity and feigning great indignance, the Islamists took umbrage to the statement of the BJP spokesperson in a show of blatant hypocrisy. Gradually, the storm of Islamic fanaticism spread across Bharat and then across the world as common, next-door Muslims started shouting blood-thirsty and blood-curdling slogans of “Gustakh-e-Rasool ki ek hi saza, sar tan se juda, sar tan se juda’ (“There is just one punishment for blaspheming the Prophet. Off with the head. Off with the head.”). In a coordinated show of Islamic unity, multiple Islamic states in the Middle East summoned Bharat’s envoys and issued statements of condemnation. The threats also poured in from terrorist organizations like the Taliban, the Al Qaeda and even ISIS.
The Narendra Modi Government, in its wisdom, chose to defuse the tension through diplomatic clarifications. The BJP on the other hand removed the spokesperson and suspended her from the primary membership of the party. Simultaneously, the spokesperson has been given state protection to deal with the many threats of rape and death which she and her family has been continually receiving.
NDTV even leaked her residential address on Twitter which wasn’t immediately taken off by Twitter (that regularly acts as a censor in the sanctimonious garb of being ethical and fair). The Modi Government has belatedly registered First Information Reports (FIRs) against multiple actors on both sides of the fence for causing communal tension, hurting peace, threatening law and order.
War on Hindu Culture
Obviously, the aim is to stop generations of Hindus from either discussing, debating or reflecting on the horror of Hindu Holocaust at the hands of both Islam and Christianity so that their cultural, social deracination can continue unabated. Consequently, they shall continue to grow into being rootless wonders, with little sense of history, time, place or belongingness to Bharatvarsha.
Moreover, given the free reign the ‘other side’, i.e. the one organizing “Dismantling Hindutva Hegemony” conferences, is able to easily acquire, the deracinated, rootless wonders would continue to grow up getting indoctrinated by the former’s concocted fake narratives and end up hating Bharat, her unequivocally rich culture and the best of minds would continue to emigrate to foreign lands, making the colonial powers richer and Bharat poorer. And all this is facilitated by the homegrown Chisto-Islamist political, social, economic infrastructure inside Bharatvarsha itself.
The proof of this strategy can already be seen unfolding before our very eyes. We know that the entire commentariat of the fake narrative builders is full of people with secular Hindus deracinated and indoctrinated Hindus. Infact, such people are called ‘Macualay’s Children’ because this strategy is under implementation since Thomas Babbit Macaulay went about destroying Hindu education system and supplanted it with the English education system. Generations in Bharat have been raised to believe the colonial drivel and look up to the West as the fountainhead of civilization, culturally evolved and look down upon Bharat as a primitive uncivilized place.
Interestingly and contextually associated to the discussion here, the same Macaulay wrote a famous poem “How Can Man Die Better Than Facing Fearful Odds”, of which the first lines are:
“To every man upon this earth death cometh soon or late.
And how can man die better than facing fearful odds, For the ashes of his fathers and the temples of his Gods.” It’s a telling commentary on the crooked and sick mindset of Macaulay that though he himself laments the loss of the Pagan past to the marauding armies of Christianity, he invested his entire life in destroying the Hindu culture of Bharatvarsha!
In any case, there’s indeed no better way to live for a Hindu than for the memories of his Pitra and the abode of his Bhagavan and Bhagavati, as Macaulay suggests!
The Method Behind the Madness
The actual reasons behind the ruse are much deeper and the aim is more comprehensive than it appears on the surface. This is not a quarrel that happened. This is a fight that has been picked deliberately. Considering the fact that it was perpetrated in the context of the reclamation of the Gyanvapi Mandir by the Hindu community, it seems the international outrage is aimed immediately at suppressing the attempts by Hindus to reclaim their temples that have been converted into mosques by the power of the sword of Islamic invasion roughly through the last 1400 years i.e. since the birth of Islam ever since which Bharatvarsh has braved the Islamic onslaughts for the latter’s decided goal to convert Bharat into an extension of a greater Khorāsān, an Islamic Caliphate.
All the same, suppression of this aspect of the ‘Hindu Revivalism Project’, which has seen many leaders since the unparalleled Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, the venerable Maharani Ahilya Bai Holkar in medieval Bharat to the RSS and VHP amongst others in the modern era and lately a variegated assortment of social media warriors that are fast springing up, is not the unitary target. There are multiple, simultaneous and conjoined targets.
The Enemy’s Ploy: Triggering A Million Mutinies
If the Islamic states of the Middle East were really serious about the insult to the Prophet, they’d have said and done something about the untold atrocities China is said to be perpetrating on the Uighur Muslims. But their silence is deafening and tells us that the pain and hurt lies elsewhere.
It must be pointed out that Qatar was designated a “major non-NATO ally of USA”, very recently. Not just Qatar but two more Islamist states, viz., Pakistan and Tunisia are designated “major non-NATO ally of USA”. All three are known hot beds of Islamic terror, both military as well as funding. All three are known to be de facto dictatorships. Pakistan in particular is a failed terror state. All three are known to either house terror organizations like ISIS, Al Qaeda to name just two out of many. Qatar, in particular grants significant state support to Al Qaeda. As pointed out earlier, Al Qaeda has recently threatened Bharat of ‘Fidayeen’ attacks. Guess which nation gives Qatar military and financial advantages? USA, the champion of the “Free World”. So, USA has no credibility when it lectures us on “freedom of religion”.
Moreover, not for no reason whatsoever, there have been speculation in some quarters that the recent spurt of condemnations emanating from the Middle East might have the NATO as the puppeteer. Qatar has been known to be funding Islamist organizations in Bharat. Qatar has close links to the West. Till 1971, it was a British Protectorate. Both In 1991 and in 2011, Qatar was used by the United States to attack Iraq. Qatar is also on the US-side in the US war against Libya, even if it means hobnobbing with Qatar based ISIS terrorists. Qatar is scary but United States has shades of the grey that are distinctly unhealthy for our wellbeing.
USA has kept its Deep State against Bharatvarsha and especially the BJP regime active through the ‘smokes and mirrors’ of state and non-state actors, such as pro-Isalmist member of the US Congress (recently known Hindu(tva)-hater US Congresswoman Ilhan Omar visited PoK and made obvious anti-Bharat noises aimed at intimidating Bharat but the Modi government would have none of it and issued a quick and firm protest, calling out the visit as violation of the territorial integrity of Bharat) and agencies like the USCIRF who have raised absolutely fake and biased narratives of ‘threat to religious freedom’ in Bharat, they haven’t had the desired effect.
The latest example is the up-at-dawn efforts by Western European nations and the state and non-state actors with the United States to get Modi make take an anti-Russia stance. They want Modi, the very man who they reviled no end, spewed venom against and demonized when he was the Chief Minister of Gujarat, to stand by them. But PM Modi has refused to even make one pro-NATO statement, let alone take an anti-Russia stance.
Moreover, PM Modi rubs salt in their wounds when he himself remains diplomatically stoic and sticks assiduously to his commitment of keeping an arm’s length distance from the Ukraine War, no matter how many pin-striped jet setting political and diplomatic heavyweights fly down to New Delhi to try and intimate him. Moreover, PM Modi adds insult to injury when he sends his highest-ranking diplomat, the Foreign Minister Dr. S Jaishankar on diplomatic jaunts where he gives the West as good as he gets on prominent international fora. This is an assertive Bharat that’s showing controlled aggression.
Doctrinal Hatred for Hindus
It must be noted that Bharat is no stranger to marauding armies and the sword of barbaric Islamic terrorists from the West. Hindus, thanks to their unbroken lineage that easily spans 5000 years, infact longer, have a 1400 year long memory of tackling and defeating the barbaric hoards of the Middle East.
Therefore, somehow if it is being suggested that the “religion of peace” has been lately offended and triggered by the BJP spokesperson, then we might as well believe in flying horses and the “Flat Earth” theory. Truth is that the hatred for non-Muslims, especially the Hindus is a doctrinal principle. Islam has been at war with Bharatvarsha since the days when Raja Chach, father of Raja Dahir ruled Afghanistan in the 8th century C.E.
Islam has attempted to convert Bharat to Islam ever since the latter’s birth. The fact is that as per the Quaran, the Hadis and the Sharia, there’s no way for a Muslim and a non-Muslim to co-exist. “Tumhara deen tumhare liye aur humara deen humare liye”, gooes the refrain to suggest that Islam is peaceful. But that refrain lasts only till so long as the Islamists don’t come to a position where they can establish Islam as the real “deen”.
Islam ordains upon its believers to either convert or enslave or drive out or extract jaziya or fight and kill the kafir, i.e. the non-Muslim. In fact, a few months ago, when the Shaheen Bagh protests were underway in response to the prospects of CAA and NRC, ISIS had produced a magazine cover where they had shown a beheaded statue of Bhagavan Shiva. If such an affront is gratuitously thrown at Hindus, then provoked Hindus are likely to retaliate.
Geo-Strategic Math: Bharat and West Asia
The Islamic nations should realize that they are poking Bharat, a nuclear power, many times their size and international heft in geo-strategic and economic terms. Bharat is far more ancient civilization, that’s known for the good behavior, productivity and prosperity of its citizens across the world. The only major advantage the Middle East is that they have oil.
In time, as renewable energy sources such as solar, hydrogen, energy storage become ubiquitous, that advantage would be lost. Oil is the waning Moon. Anyway, Middle East is a desert where nothing grows except dates. Bharat is abundant in food supplies and pharmaceuticals that they know they need. One cannot drink oil for survival. But one can live without oil, if a push comes to a shove.
Bharat also successfully carried out a training launch of nuclear-capable Agni-4 Intermediate-Range Ballistic Missile from APJ Abdul Kalam Island in Odisha a few days ago, post the violence broke out. In the din of the news coverage, the news of the test was muted. However, the symbolism won’t be lost on the rest of the world, including the Middle East.
The Ukraine war has strained supply lines of critical commodities and the world is witnessing heightened bouts of inflation. We have already seen Sri Lanka capitulating, going bankrupt and being engulfed in anarchy and violence.
This is the reason why PM Modi has been diversifying our oil import furiously, especially since the Ukraine War broke out. Inspite of massive and continuing protests and grumbles from USA and the West, Bharat has raised its import from Russia exponentially. PM Modi has shown great nuance, balance and patience in keeping the interests of Bharat foremost, not supporting the war and yet simultaneously refusing to take sides with NATO against Russia. In days of hyperinflation, there’s no reason why Bharat shouldn’t take a good deal when it’s getting one. Moreover, the condemnation by the Middle East has only compelled PM Modi to lean even more towards the heavily discounted Russian oil. In one fell swoop, it sends a tough message to Middle East, to the Western world and a soft, caring one to the electorate in Bharat itself.
Bharat has increased the imports from Russia 9x over the last year, i.e. before the Ukraine War. Post the avoidable Middle Eastern condemnation, we have further raised the imports of Russian oil by another 2x. As a result, Russia has displaced Saudi Arabia as the 2nd largest exporter of oil to Bharat. Russia now accounts for 16.5% of all oil imports by Bharat. It used to be less than 1% till just the end of the first quarter of 2022. Even the oil import from Africa has increased from 5.9% to 11.5% in April 2022.
Though our dependence on the Middle East continues as the region still accounts for 59.5% of oil imports, the dependence has gone down steeply. PM Modi has hurt the economic interests of the Middle East and punished the Islamic states handsomely for their condemnation. This should teach them a much-needed lesson. The results are beginning to show. Kuwait, that turned a blind eye to expatriate Muslims protesting the so called blasphemy against the Islamic Prophet, has declared now that all the protestors will be identified, deported, their visa permanently cancelled, so they’d never again be able to get a job in Kuwait.
Islam ordains upon its believers to either convert or enslave or drive out or extract jaziya or fight and kill the kafir, i.e. the non-Muslim. In fact, a few months ago, when the Shaheen Bagh protests were underway in response to the prospects of CAA and NRC, ISIS had produced a magazine cover where they had shown a beheaded statue of Bhagavan Shiva
Simultaneously, as the Prime Minister, Narendra Modi has to be mindful of the safety and security of the millions of non-Muslim Bharatiya living and working in the Middle East as also elsewhere. A violent retaliation against them cannot be ruled out and so one has to tread carefully.
In fact, calls of boycott of Bharatiya restaurants, goods and services spread like fire on social media networks of these states before the official calls for condemnation. This should be emphatically clear especially to the lobby within the Hindu Dharmic front of intellectuals who have opened a front against PM Modi.
