Rally resolves to protect mother tongue

Story Summary:

The former chief minister, Ms Shashikala Kakodkar, addressing a large gathering of people at Azad Maidan, Panaji. The rally was organised by the Bhartiya Bhasha Suraksha Manch.

PANAJI: A massive rally of Goans at Azad Maidan, on Wednesday, resolved that the Bharatiya Bhasha Suraksha Manch be made into a permanent platform to protect and promote Indian languages and culture in Goa and to defeat the evil designs of vested interests to de-culture and de-link the state from the Indian mainstream.

The rally further demanded that the present grant-in-aid policy for primary schools from standard I to IV should continue, without any change, to be in sync with the provisions of the Right to Education Act 2009; the time honoured educational policy of the state government on giving grants-in-aid to private English and other language medium secondary schools (Std V to X) should continue permanently and details be discussed with the central government to fit the state policy within the frame work of RTE Act 2009.

Demanding that the government should henceforth refuse recognition to private English medium primary schools and make it mandatory for existing English medium primary schools to teach at least two subjects through Konkani, Marathi or other Indian languages, the people felt that the government should put a ban on registration of English play schools and pre-primary schools and make it mandatory for the schools already registered to shift to the Indian languages within a given time-frame.

In the end, the rally felt that all Goans, irrespective of religion, caste and language should be proud of their Indian origin, Indian languages and Indian culture and defeat all attempts of vested interests to undermine the Indian identity of Goa.

"We do not want to divide the people of the state on language barriers, but need to keep this unity intact and aspire for what we have gathered here today and get our mission fulfilled,’’ stated the president of the Bharatiya Bhasha Suraksha Manch and former chief minister, Ms Shashikala Kakodkar. While expressing happiness over the huge gathering at the venue of the rally, Ms Kakodkar said that her heart goes out for the women who have come for the cause of their children and added that this is not the end of the language issue but the beginning of it.

Konkani protagonist and former editor of Sunaprant, Mr Uday Bhembre, in his strongly worded speech said: "If you want to be global by learning English then go to England or United States and sleep there on the streets, we don’t mind. But, we will not allow you to destroy our culture and uproot our identity and languages for the sake of employment.’’

Mr Bhembre further said that education is governed by certain norms and only educationists have the right to decide about the education policy and medium of instruction.

While the chief of Marathi Academy, Mr Narendra Azgaonkar said that we do not want to burden the children, so we should have the elementary education in mother tongue.

A Konkani writer, Mr N Shivdas said that it is a historic movement and we need to be alert as our mother tongue is in a danger.

"We will never allow elementary education through English at all costs. We are nationalists. Neither we will allow grants to be given to English medium schools nor will we allow to destroy Indian languages,’’ Mr Naguesh Karmali, freedom fighter and poet said while addressing the rally. Mr Bhiku Pai Angle said, "we have to remain united and fight for our mother tongue by remaining awake. What we see today, is due to our own faults."

Fr Mousinh Ataide asked the people to take vow that they would protect Indian languages as they are at present in throes of crisis and demanded that henceforth no permissions should be given to English medium schools.

The Sahitya Akademy Award winner, Mr Pundalik Naik, said that Chinese, Japanese and German people did not die for the want of English, instead, they prospered and progressed with the help of their own languages.

Speaking on the occasion, Mr Avind Bhatikar said that he studied in mother tongue and could still pass IAS exam.

Mr Anil Samant, Mr Prashant Naik, Mr Mohandas Nadkarni, Mr Subhash Velingkar and Ms Swati Kerkar were among those who spoke on the occasion.

The prominent personalities present on the occasion were the leader of opposition, Mr Manohar Parrikar, the North Goa MP, Mr Shripad, Naik, the BJP president, Mr Laxmikant Parsekar, the Mapusa MLA, Mr Francis D’Souza, Canacona MLA, Mr Vijay Pai Khot, and Siolim MLA, Mr Dayanand Mandrenkar

"विश्वकल्याणासाठी हिंदुत्वच!'

पणजीतील प्रकट बौद्धिकात मोहनजी भागवत यांचे उद्गार
पणजी, दि. ३ (प्रतिनिधी)- देशात व पर्यायाने संपूर्ण विश्वात शांततेचे व सलोख्याचे वातावरण निर्माण व्हावयाचे असेल तर त्यासाठी हिंदुत्व हा एकमेव पर्याय आहे. भारताला लाभलेली उच्च जीवन संस्कृतीच या जगाला तारू शकते याची ओळख आता संपूर्ण जगालाही पटू लागली आहे. विविधेतून एकता साधायची असेल तर त्याला केवळ हिंदुत्व हाच एकमेव पर्याय असल्याचे स्पष्ट प्रतिपादन राष्ट्रीय स्वयंसेवक संघाचे सरसंघचालक मोहनजी भागवत यांनी केले.
आज कांपाल येथील स्व. भाऊसाहेब बांदोडकर मैदानावर राष्ट्रीय स्वयंसेवक संघ कार्यकर्ते व नागरिकांच्या विराट सभेला प्रकट बौद्धिकांतर्गत प्रबोधन करताना ते बोलत होते. याप्रसंगी व्यासपीठावर उत्तर गोवा संघचालक राजाभाऊ सुकेरकर, दक्षिण गोवा संघचालक रामदास सराफ, राष्ट्रीय स्वयंसेवक संघाचे गोवा निमंत्रक प्रा. सुभाष वेलिंगकर व कोंकण विभागाचे संघचालक बापूसाहेब मोकाशी उपस्थित होते.
अत्यंत तेजस्वी व्यक्तिमत्त्व लाभलेल्या श्री. भागवत यांनी आपल्या ओघवत्या व प्रखर भाषणांत भारताच्या भवितव्याचा चौफेर आढावा घेतला. देशाच्या सुरक्षेपेक्षा मतपेढीचे राजकारण जेव्हा वरचढ ठरू लागते तेव्हा देशावर संकटांची गडद छाया पसरू लागते. आज बांगलादेशातून मोठ्या प्रमाणात घुसखोर भारतात दाखल झाले आहेत. आसाम राज्यावर त्यांनी केलेले अतिक्रमण पाहता हे राज्य भारतात राहील की नाही याबाबतच संशय घेण्याची परिस्थिती निर्माण झाली आहे. गोव्यातही हे घुसखोर शिरले आहेत. त्यांना हेरून, रेशनकार्डे व मतदार यादीतून त्यांची नावे वगळून त्यांना परत त्यांच्या देशात पाठवणे हेच सर्वांच्या हिताचे होईल, असेही ते म्हणाले. आपण मुत्सद्देगिरी सोडून केवळ शांततेच्या बाता मारीत बसलो आहोत तर तिथे चीन अत्यंत नियोजनपूर्वक आपल्या साम्राज्याचा विस्तार करतो आहे. युद्ध सोडाच पण निदान मुत्सद्देगिरीच्या बळावर तरी त्याचा हा डाव हाणून पाडण्याकडे लक्ष द्या, असा सल्लाही त्यांनी यावेळी केला. एकीकडे भावनात्मक राष्ट्रीय एकात्मतेच्या गोष्टी करणे व दुसरीकडे मात्र संविधानाला अमान्य असलेली धार्मिक राखीवता राबवून मतांचे राजकारण करणे हे देशाला घातक ठरेल, असे स्पष्ट मतही त्यांनी वेळी जाहीर केले.
देशात हिंदूंची संख्या रोडावत चालल्याने एकामागोमाग एक समस्या उद्भवत आहेत. सगळ्यांना सामावून घेणारे एकच सूत्र म्हणजे हिंदुत्व. याच हिंदुत्वामुळे विश्वभरात भारत देशाला प्रतिष्ठा प्राप्त झाली आहे. आज देशभरात संघाच्या सुमारे चाळीस हजार शाखा आहेत. संघ हा नेहमीच देशाचा विचार करतो व त्या अनुषंगानेच वावरतो. संघाच्या वर्णनावर जाऊ नका, त्यात गफलत होऊ शकेल पण प्रत्यक्ष अनुभव घेतला तरच संघाच्या कार्याची ओळख पटेल. संघाच्या शाखेत सहा महिने किंवा वर्षभर सहभागी व्हा. इथे काहीही छुपेपणाने चालत नाही तर सर्व व्यवहार पारदर्शकपणे चालतो. संघाचा अनुभव घेऊन मगच खात्री करा व नंतर संघात राहायचे की नाही हे ठरवा. संघाचे सहयोगी कार्यकर्ता म्हणूनही देशकार्यात भाग घेण्याची मोकळीक आहे व देशबांधणीस त्याची गरज असल्याचे ते म्हणाले. आपला देश वाचवायचा असेल तर समाजाला सक्रिय करण्याशिवाय अन्य पर्याय नाही, असा निर्वाणीचा सल्लाही त्यांनी यावेळी दिला.
प्रा. सुभाष वेलिंगकर यांनी सुरुवातीस प्रास्ताविक केले. गोव्यात संघाची स्थापना होऊन ४८ वर्षे झाली. गोवा राज्य संघाला पन्नास वर्षे पूर्ण होत असताना येथील प्रत्येक शाखा बळकट, गुणात्मक, मजबूत बनवण्याकडेच कल असेल, असेही त्यांनी सांगितले. त्यांनीच शेवटी उपस्थितांचे आभार मानले.
Unity in diversity holds key to national integration: Bhagwat

PANAJI: Stating that national integration is possible only through unity in diversity as experienced by India, the Sarsanghchalak of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, Mr Mohan Bhagwat on Wednesday said that this thought is the essence of Hindutva as well as religion of all Indians, and it can provide Indians with fulfilment in life.

The RSS chief, presently on the Goa visit, while addressing a gathering of 5,000 swayamsevaks or volunteers in the city, during a ‘Prakat Boudhik’, said the life on the entire planet is endangered due to the pleasure-centred lifestyle followed by majority of humans, further suggesting that the age-old Indian culture advising humans to coexist with nature is the solution to this grave problem.
“Like nature, the diversity in human life can bring together mankind,” he added.
Speaking further, Mr Bhagwat said that extremism breeds ego and ego results in rivalry. “Humans can coexist in spite of following different religion as well as God and diverse lifestyles,” he observed, stressing on the need for a value system that will protect the planet. Though India contributed towards science, technology and philosophy on the global level, there exists no example showing that the country attacked any religion, at any point of time, the RSS chief said, pointing out that Hindus are being given step-motherly treatment. He also noted that the RSS has never undertaken any project for self-benefit, and is currently handling as many as 1.45 lakh projects in every possible sector, for the public welfare.
Speaking about the Indian political scenario, the RSS chief demanded immediate deportation of residents of Bangladesh, who are patronised in Assam in particular and other parts of the country in general, for vote-bank purpose. He bemoaned the plight of countless Kashmiri Pundits, who have been forced to vacate their native state by the terror groups, and lamented that the government is totally ignoring their pathetic condition.
Mr Bhagwat finally appealed to the public to join the RSS, and understand the work undertaken by Sangh.
The leader of the opposition, Mr Manohar Parrikar, the North Goa MP, Mr Shripad Naik, the chief of the Goa unit of RSS, Mr Subhash Velingkar, the Mapusa MLA, Mr Francis D’Souza, the Pernem MLA, Mr Dayanand Sopte, the state Congress general-secretary, Mr Vishnu Wagh and the member of the Entertainment Society of Goa, Mr Vishal Pai Cacode were present at the public address of Mr Bhagwat.
Earlier in the day, the RSS chief placed a wreath on the Martyrs Memorial at Azad Maidan and offered homage to the martyrs who sacrificed their life to liberate the region from the colonial rule. He also received guard of honour from the RSS volunteers, who marched through the city streets and assembled at Campal ground.

Vote bank politics a security threat: RSS

HERALD REPORTER
PANJIM, FEB 3
Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat today said that the vote bank politics is taking its toll on national security.
Addressing a gathering of swayamsevaks (volunteers) at Panjim Gymkhana grounds, Bhagwat said that India is under threat from its neighbours Bangladesh, Pakistan and China.
“There are crores of Bangladeshis infiltrating in Assam and one wonders whether the State will remain part of India considering that Bangladesh’s vision document clearly states that there is shortage of land in that country and they want to extend their borders in Assam,” he said.
“Bangladeshis illegally staying in India should be sent back to their countries even by canceling their names from ration card and electoral roll, if required,” he said.
Bhagwat said that there is provision in the law to form internment camps for these illegal people to shelter them before being deported to their parent country.
“The government should at least now act against illegal migration by keeping aside their vote bank politics or else the day will come when they will get muscles in the political system,” he warned.
Apart from Bangladesh, he said India is facing threat from Pakistan as well as China.
“Even after 26/11 Pakistan has failed to act against the terrorist groups acting from their land and India has done nothing to thwart this threat,” he said adding “….by now we should have thought them a lesson but our government thinks otherwise.”
He said China is also improving its bilateral relations with all our neighbours and also captured our land in North Eastern States.
“Why doesn’t government act on these things?” he asked.
“The vote bank politics is taking a toll on nation’s security,” he said adding “Only Hindutva can save this country.”
He boasted that RSS cadres rushed to the rescue in any kind of natural calamities or tragedies before even police or other government machinery can reach.
“This is because of the strong feeling to serve the country, which is nurtured in the heart of a swayamsevak,” he said.
“Join RSS and be the part of groups, who are ready for self sacrifice for the country,” he appealed.

Rashtraraksha Ninad Gosh Shibir shows the way

Smita Salaskar and Shirish Karkare appeal
Demand an explanation for terrorist attacks from leaders who govern the country

Panvel 24feb., “Why India has been a repeated target of terrorist attacks? Why terrorism is not tackled at the roots itself? Who is responsible for these terrorist attacks?” People of this country should pose these questions before the leaders whom we have empowered to govern the country,’’ appealed Smita Salaskar, wife of late Vijay Salaskar and Shirish Karkare, brother of late Hemant Karkare here today.

Smita Salaskar, wife of the late encounter specialist Vijay Salaskar and Shirish Karkare, brother of the late ATS chief Hemant Karkare addressed the audience as chief guests in an open programme arranged on the occasion of Rashtraraksha Ninand Ghosh Shibir organized by the Konkan Pranta of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh at Karnala Sports Academy on February 22. The noted singer and music director Shridhar Phadke who was the chief of the three-day camp welcomed the chief guests. In his inaugural speech he said, “Music is very close to human life. Music can effectively portray happy and tragic moments in life and it also has tremendous power to inspire society. Veer rasa rousing patriotic feelings among masses is necessary today for national security.” Delightful demonstrations presented by 770 participants (ghosh vadaks) set the mood of the programme.

Smita Salaskar maintained in her speech, “I don’t take pride in calling myself ‘veer patni’, because the very fact that my husband was the victim of terrorists who were illiterate and some ordinary people who could handle guns --is extremely disgraceful to the national security of the country. How many more veer mata and veera patni do we want? Everybody should readily perform one’s duty if such a danger has to be avoided in future”. She further added that organizations like the RSS would inspire people to perform their duties. Shirish Karkare, brother of martyr Heman Karkare shared some memories of late Hemant Karkare and expressed that every citizen should understand one’s responsibility and perform one’s duty honestly. He mentioned, ‘’The late Hemant Karkare had very high hopes from the youngsters of the country. After witnessing the Rashtriya Ninand Shibir, I am hopeful that the committed youngsters of this country can perform many things in future. This Ghosh Shibir is the very embodiment of patriotic fervour. Families are becoming smaller and smaller in today’s age of globalization. In future the middle class people would have to bare the responsibility of performing national duty. The organization like the RSS can nourish such feelings,” he added. Vaishali Ombale, daughter of martyr police constable Ombale also spoke on the occasion.

Bhaiyyaji Joshi, Saha Sarkaryavaha RSS appealed the audience to preserve national safety and told the citizens to be prepared to destroy the evil tendencies in the society. He totally agreed with the opinions expressed by Karkare and Salaskar but he maintained that these feelings should be supported by positive action. He opined that India had experienced such challenges even before and positive strength of this country had successfully retaliated against it. It is wrong that today Hindu society is blamed as terrorist. Hindus were never terrorists and would never be terrorists in future. This country has always excelled in giving something to others. The internal security of India is indeed a matter of concern but more alarming is the threat of attacks from outside. Infiltration in border areas is the major challenge before the country. China is trying to increase its dominance over Arunachal Pradesh. To tackle this problem it is necessary to take support of International law and power of weapons. Today too much importance is given to politics and power game. It is sad that powers from outside play important roles in deciding the prime minister or president of the country. Adivasi and vanavasi people are forced to convert to Christianity by using money. Every citizen should readily take some responsibility in tackling these challenges before the country. The government should do its duties and people should be conscious and alert in performing their duties and responsibilities. Hindus can be patient and tolerant only up to some limit and there is no need to teach lessons of humanity to them,’’ he maintained. “If the country has to face the challenge of problems like national security and conversion then the society should be more organized and media should play an important role in giving positive publicity to such organized work”, he added.

Attractive Deepotsav was also arranged on the occasion. Pramod Bapat presented a song. Swanand Oak anchored the event.

Devasthan Sanrakshan Maha Sammelan on 10th Jan 2009 at Campal, Panaji, Goa

Devasthan Sanrakshan Maha Sammelan is being organised at Campal SAG Ground on 10th Jan 2009 by Mandir Suraksha Samiti to protest against the frequent vandalism of Hindu temples in the state of Goa for the past 4 years. The Government of Goa has been totally unsuccessful in investigating any of the vandalism cases. It has turned a blind eye on the recent vandalisms. More than 1 lakh people are expected for the Sammelan from all conners of Goa. The excitement about the Sammelam is already seen in the major towns and even in the villages in the form of banners, rallies, public meetings, door to door campaings, dwaj poojan in temples etc. It is first time in the History of Goa that such a huge Sammelan is held which will specifically be attended by Hindus of the Sate who are actually a majority in the state but has to come together to protest the recent vandalism as the Government is not willing to do anything.

Dirty and Mean methods adopted by followers of Semitic religion for conversion of Hindus

The followers of Semitic religion want to convert the whole world into their respective religions Christianity or Islam. Followers of Christianity had quite success in converting the people of Africa into Christianity but they were not finding it easy to convert Hindus of Bhaarat. For that purpose they started adopting many tricks. One of the tricks was to denigrate Hindu religion in many ways. Christians found it very convient that by distorting Caste System and Sati system of Hindu religion for conversion Hindus into Christianity. See the details in the following article how the Christians took advantage for converting Hindus by distorting the Sati system.

http://indiaview.wordpress.com/2008/05/21/censoring-indian-history/

Sati Pratha and its origins

Prabhat Varun

Sati Pratha is a favorite topic among Hindu-bashers. As soon as they are questioned about the validity of their own claims, goals and methods they immediately start harping on Sati Pratha.

And lo! The trick works. The questioning Hindu becomes defensive. He never tries to probe into the origin of so-called Sati Pratha, or at least about its rumors. So, let us try to do it here, what the typical-Hindu always refrains to.

Sati Pratha is nowhere mentioned in Hindu scriptures. Not a hint of it. There is no case of forceful widow burning in any of our scriptures. News about Sati Pratha started surfacing only with the advent of Christian Missionaries in India . They with their mission of converting the wretched idolaters, i.e., Hindus to Christianity started slandering Hinduism. For they quickly perceived that Hindus were an unyielding, staunch lot. They would not yield to the treacherous methods of Christian Missionaries. So they devised a new way for accomplishing their Harvest. They decided to slander Hinduism in front of Hindus, so as to shake their belief in it, and also in front of global community so as to justify their demonic agendas of Conversion. And for that they had a new tool in their hands to which Hindus had no access. This tool was the combined institution of Modern British Education System and the newly born media, i.e., the propaganda machine. (How they developed these mediums in India is another topic, related to Macaulay and many others and too long to be discussed here).

So, they started their well-planned campaign against Hinduism. A very good example of this is the English word “Juggernaut”, meaning, “a huge and overwhelming force”. It is originated form the Rath Yatra of Jagganath. Christian Missionaries said that there goes one evil Yatra among Hindus, in which wretched idolaters take out a procession of three idols. In the Yatra, they take intoxicating drugs, dance nude in front of the chariot, make obscene gestures to each other and then in a fit throw themselves in front of the chariot to commit suicide. Hence, the word with its meaning of an “overwhelming force”.

Swami Vivekanand also mentions this at one place along with many other calumnies heaped over Hinduism and Hindu civilization by the designing Christian Missionaries. Here is an excerpt of that, “What is meant by those pictures in the school-books for children where the Hindu mother is painted as throwing her children to the crocodiles in the Ganga ? The mother is black, but the baby is painted white, to arouse more sympathy, and get more money. What is meant by those pictures, which painted a man burning his wife at a stake with his own hands, so that she may become a ghost and torment the husband’s enemy? What is meant by the pictures of huge cars crushing over human beings? I have heard one of these gentlemen preach in Memphis that, in every village of India , there is a pond of the bones of little babies… What have the Hindus done to these disciples of Christ that every Christian child is taught to call the Hindus ‘vile’ and ‘wretched’ and the most horrible demons on earth?” Swami Vivekananda, The Complete
Works, Vol. IV (1945 ed.)
Any person even most slightly acquainted with the Rath Yatra needs no explaining about the truth.

Similarly, they harped on Sati, and invented the very term and phenomenon of Sati Pratha, citing some allegedly eye-witness accounts of widow burning on the funeral pyre of their husband. So, what was the truth in those accounts? If, there was any truth in those accounts, then what was their origin?

For finding their origin, we have to stretch our memory some centuries back to the Medieval Ages, the era of great unprecedented rape, pillage and looting of India by Muslims and their armies. Among the very first provinces to bear the brunt of Islamic sword were Sindh, Punjab and Rajputana. Sindh being Buddhist in majority and Punjab also having a considerable population of Buddhists, succumbed soon to the unprecedented barbarous Islamic invasions. But Rajputana being completely Hindu held out for centuries. Even now there are only 9% Muslims in Rajasthan. But this resistance cost them a great deal. They had never faced such barbarous invaders and looters. All of the wars which they fought until then, were fought with a moral ethical code. Being synonymous with the Hindu philosophy, wars were fought only between warriors and concerned only them. Civil populace was never even touched, let alone molested.

But the new Islamic enemy they were now facing was an unprecedented evil force, which did not rely on valour for victory, but instead on treachery, deceit, malice, crookedness and all other evil means. Those Islamic armies instead of fighting chivalrously with their opponents, chose to decimate the civilian populace, by laying siege to the country side, thus decimating the social, cultural and economic fabric of the nations. They massacred and butchered complete populations of Hindus, broke their idols, desecrated their temples, butchered the Brahmins, converted them forcibly to Islam (by making them eat beef!) destroyed their corps, poisoned their wells, burned their houses, abducted their children and raped their women. They took their inspiration from Quran. Ayats 2:193, 8:39, orders them to break idols. Ayats 8:12, 22: 19-22 exhorts them to massacre the religious leaders of the other religion. Ayats 33:59 and 4:24 encourages them to commit sexual transgressions without compunction with the non-Muslim women.

This, this last atrocity done to the local populace by these Islamic marauders was without precedence in cruelty. (No one in Hindu era even thought of touching another woman, let alone raping her). It was a greater calamity on women than their family men. They did not think of such calamity befalling them in their wildest nightmares. They were free women under Hinduism with an equal say in society as men. They were not used to the sexual, and mental humiliation and torture to which Muslim and non-Muslim women under Islamic rule were subjected to. Chastity for them was everything, the prime value of life. They could not imagine an unchaste life. The very concept was unthinkable to them. And for preserving their chastity they were prepared to do anything, to break every barrier, to sacrifice every tying, even their life. And so they did.

Facing these Islamic molesters, the brave Hindu women chose death. They built big cauldron like pots, lit then with fire and jumped into them, to die voluntarily and happily in order to save their honour and chastity. They chose and embraced death themselves and nobody forced them to do so. They with their very feminine bravery defied whole armies of Islamic marauders with all of their evil means and intentions. This phenomenon was called ‘johar’, meaning giving themselves to fire in order to be saved from disgrace.

So, this was ‘Johar’, later practiced by Hindu women in every part of India in order to save themselves from the dirty hands of Islamic marauders. There was no forced immolation in that process, no malign Brahmins, no cruel priests, thus no ‘Sati Pratha.’ And for suicide no other person can be blamed, other than those Islamic marauders whose threat forced Hindu women to suicide.

‘Sati’ is an ancient Sanskrit term, meaning a chaste woman who thinks of no other man than her own husband. The famous examples are Sati Anusuiya, Savitri, Ahilya etc. None of them committed suicide, let alone being forcible burned. So how is that that they are called Sati? The word ‘Sati’ means a chaste woman, and it has no co-relations with either suicide or murder. The term ‘Sati’ was never accompanied by ‘Pratha’. The phrase, ‘Sati Pratha’ was a Christian Missionary invention. Sati was taken form the above quoted source and ‘Pratha’ was taken from the practice of Johar’, (by distorting its meaning from ‘suicide’ to ‘murder’) and the myth of ‘Sati Pratha’ was born to haunt Hindus forever.

So ‘Sati Pratha’ (in its modern avatar of forcible widow burning) is not a fault of Hinduism but a crime of Islam. Islam is the perpetrator of crime here, and Hinduism, the victim. It is a joint crime of Islam and Christianity. The crime of Islam was transposed on Hinduism (absolving Islam in the process) by the historical connivance of anti-Hindu forces (Islam, Christianity and Marxism).

To insert a spiritual clause here, it is very important to say that in modern times whenever is there a case reported of voluntary immolation of a woman on her husband’s pyre, it is never reported that the dying woman shrieked in the unbearable pain of the burning flesh. Sucha case is reported by Mark Tully in his book ‘No Full Stops in India ’. He tells of a woman Roop Kanwar in the village Deorala, district Sikar of Rajasthan who in Sep 1987 voluntarily died by burning herself with fire, without emitting any cries or shrieks. So what does it signify? No mortal can remain calm when his flesh is being burnt. So what is the reason of this superhuman quality of these women? The answer lies in dharma, Yoga and meditation. There are umpteen stories in Puranas and Vedas in which both men and women voluntarily accept death by immolating their mortal bodies by various means, including fire. The power of Yoga makes them oblivious of the pain of the decay of the mortal body. So women who voluntarily gave up their life in fire were empowered with the power of Yoga. Pain did not touch their chaste bodies.

Hindus being oppressed for centuries have developed a mental state called ‘Dhimmitude’, which means a mental slavery to its long time oppressor Islam. So, now even those Hindus who stand against Islam are timid, defensive and guilty of some hypothetical crimes, imagined for their chagrin, for them by their enemies. They still can’t think freely, analyze history objectively and recognize the true nature of Hinduism, i.e., Dharma.

But, if they want to re-generate Dharma, Truth and Goodness then they will have to view History in its true light, with Courage, Resolution and with Objectivity. Then only they will be able to re-discover their Dharma and do something for its regeneration.
History being ‘Dharma’ itself hopes them to do so.

Filmfare or Film fraud?

Islamist agenda of Bollywood trade-award lobby

Between the distorted tributes to Akbar Ghazi and the fake Kabir Khan, it is hard to understand why the Islamic Republic of Pakistan really needs an ISI when they have Bollywood and its agents in the trade-award lobby planted in India to do their job for them right under the eyes of the Indian public.

This agenda of Bollywood continues this year with Filmfare, once known to ignore popular Hindi blockbusters in favor of Naseeruddin Shah type cinema in the name of 'appreciating art', now having dropped all pretensions of that neutrality and dignity.

The filmfare sponsors were linked to the mid-east funded underworld not too long ago. But they don't even bother pretending not to be an Islamist charade anymore.

The awards are hosted at Adi Chopra's studio, where Chopras are given some made up power award. What is the need for a made up 'power award' in a critical appreciation environment anyway should be the first question? But that apart, why are chopras given these made up power awards?

The answer is not because they were able to make Uday Chopra into a superstar. It is because Chopras are serving as vessels to promote certain Khan actors in Hindi's cinema, not for any other reason. The show is emceed by this khan, Shah Rukh Khan, who conveniently, is again nominated for the award, standing along with Saif Ali Khan who's linked to a Kareena Kapoor, who is also now all of a sudden being given award after award as if she is the new Nutan. Why? You can't be sure whether her award is for her performance in some movie, or for her performance of dumping her man for some Khan in real life.

This is not to ignore the Shahrukh Khan Community peons Farah Khan, and Sajid Khan, whose works like Heyy Babyy and OSO are also deemed worthy of an award nomination.

After a series of gimmicks, the actor award goes to....who else? Shahrukh Khan, the supposed host. Nobody asks how can any actor, who is supposed to be a nominee for awards gets to be a host also.

This is nothing new of course. Even in years 'baadsha' Khan is rejected by the audience, Filmfare likes to create a false illusion and make up some award for Khan.

The whole charade is a first class repulsive political tamasha. The BJP (or some other) government before it comes into power should take note that Bollywood and its media are nothing but the media arm of the Islamist congress party. That congress has been getting routed and its government is about to fall from Delhi but bollywood has so far gone unscathed. And it shouldn't anymore.

Because Bollywood's trade and award lobby have become unabashedly political along that ideology (it can be seen through Zee Cine Awards, IIFA, Star Screen awards, Filmfare and trade write-ups). The politics of it is that if you're a Hindu, and make a movie on Hindu cultural values or heroes, you will get the shaft at the awards. On the other hand, make a semi-coherent movie starring a Muslim Khan actor, or distort towards heroism of a Jalaluddin Akbar Ghazi in Jodhaa Akbar or some fake Kabir Khan in Chak De, well you might as well book yourself a filmfare award now. It would be one thing if there was a semblance of balance reflecting the reality of Hindustan as a whole but there isn't. This crowd is something else, belongs somewhere else. This is not the Hindi reality.

The question is why are Hindus patronizing this charade, let alone allowing this in the name of Hindi cinema? What we have here is essentially subsidization of Pakistani-Punjabi culture in the guise of Hindi cinema. Pakistani-Punjabi because those Punjabis who lean Hindu too get the shaft from the trade/award lobby. And all this is increasingly being done dropping all pretenses of dignity and secularism. These people benefitting from secularism are themselves operating in communal camps when they can.

But be that as it may then. They can self-congratulate themselves right now. But Bollywood and its awards are going to be treated in the same manner from now on in response; without pretense of the esteem and dignity that an award is supposed to represent in the first place.

And politically, the producers and lobbyists need to keep in mind that the climate can change in 10 Janpath soon. They will have to go pleading to the very people being angered right now.
