The Supreme Court Verdicts: Sabarimala, IPC 497 & 377 and Aadhar

Too much is happening too soon in India. Landmark judgments in quick intervals.  As the first batch of verdicts arrive, here is my take on the vital historic benchmarks which will go a long way in characterizing the Indian society as we see it today. The socio-economic impact is bound to leave an imprint on each and every Indian citizen.

****************************************

THE SABARIMALA CASE

At the outset, I would like to point out that the honourable Supreme Court of India must also make it possible for Muslim women in India to pray as equals in the mosques across the nation by way of a statute. Now that is equitable justice. PIL if any? Or our media houses like the Hindu or the Scroll can take it upon themselves to address the issue next, on warfooting basis. There are soldiers like Shekhar Gupta and others to take forward the agenda. Hopefully, the guys hold ample insurance cover!

We did have our Tripthi Desai who fought for women’s entry to Shani temple who though dropped the matter like hot potato when it came to Sufi shrine. Desai is smart, aware of consequences?

Interesting, the PIL for entry of women into Sabarimala Aiyappa temple was filed by one ‘Naushad Ahmed Khan’ ! It cannot get more macabre than this !

Decoding Sabarimala: Why restrictions on women into Sabarimala: 

The Supreme court of India has ruled that, women in their fertile years between 10 and 50 can now go on pilgrimage to the shrine set deep in the jungles of western ghats of Kerala, south India. For centuries, the hill shrine’s doors have remained closed to women for specific reasons. Chief most among them is that the Lord Aiyappan, the presiding deity of the temple, is viewed by His devotees as a living deity. Low profile son of Lord Shiva, Lord Aiyappa is revered for his strict ‘brahmacharya’ (bachelorhood) as he kept away from women all His life, the way legends have it.

Sabarimala is nestled within the thick jungles of Western ghats whose rough and moist terrain even today is infested with a variety of wild life including elephants, tigers and leopards. Very recently the holy river Pamba in Sabarimala was flooded in monsoons and the temple had to close down for an infinite period. A pilgrimage to Sabarimala meant fasting, foregoing footwear, sleeping on floor, donning saffron or blue-black clothes, practising abstinence from all worldly pleasures, and intense Pujas (prayers) for a ‘mandala’ (40 days) and then finally walking on foot to the Hill temple. Of course nowadays, modern means of transport take you almost to the base of Sabarimala. Still, devotees have to climb on bare foot the final 50 km stretch or so uphill in rain or shine carrying their own food, fuel and water and Neivedyam (food offerings for Lord Aiyappa) and other such basic necessities. In olden days, a pilgrimage to Sabarimala did not necessarily guarantee one’s return. Wild elephant/tiger/cheetah attacks have statistically claimed many a casualty as also snake bites. A second reason was attributed to infections and epidemics in the forests during the monsoons flush with Malarial parasites. Thirdly, the mountain terrain was itself uninviting that hiking was perilous with devotees succumbing to heat strokes and/or heart attacks. Therefore, before someone set out on pilgrimage to Sabarimala, a big Puja was always done, with the mother of the pilgrim giving him Vaikkarisi (last rice – like last rites before cremation) before leaving home. Now this custom may sound banal, but not until a century ago. The Vaikkarisi custom still continues to be followed among Aiyappa devotees. Women obviously could have been discouraged from going to Sabarimala for these varied and valid reasons.

Sabarimala is one more milestone for Hindu women:

However Hindu women have crossed many hurdles in the last hundred years that the present Sabarimala seems not to be a daunting task. The very Manusmriti that the puritans swear by is against women’s education and employment and also holding/owning/inheriting of estates by women. Women in some states of India also were forced to commit ‘Sati’ – jumping into the funeral pyres of their husbands for centuries It took someone like Raja Ram Mohan Roy to champion the case against Sati. Every social reform in India is thus hard fought for. There is a crusader behind every legal and just cause.

Hindu women also continued to shave their heads when widowed, donning the saffron or the white robes. Last I saw such a ‘mottai paatti’ was in my school days. Do we women still stick to this cruel and ugly ‘Sampradaya’? No divorce was allowed either in Hindu society. Women got ‘separated’ – never legally. This meant no alimony. A man could marry more than once and could have more than one wife. Every single flaw was rectified in our recent history with the help of litigation only. Divorce is the greatest independence that Hindu women can exercise today against exploitation and abuse. I have friends who have won their freedom with this option which was impossible to gain in my mother’s generation.

Hindu women also now enjoy equal rights to property as men – which had to be legally sanctioned. Hindu practices deny rights to real estate to women. Daughters do not inherit as per Hindu family customs. Once again the courts had to intervene when our own mothers/sisters/wives/daughters had to suffer the injustice.

Every step the Hindu women have put forward has been difficult and uncertain – women in India have not walked over a bed of roses like women in every corner of the globe. What the Suffragettes have gone through to elevate the quality of life for women is a heroic tale of valour and justice. No battle has been easy. And most often, as now in the case of Sabarimala, it is women who are primed against women sadly.

When Hindu women can have access to education and employment and most importantly can attend schools and work during menstruation, one cannot understand the logic in continuing with the ban on women at Sabarimala in this modern age. Back when we were teenagers, at least partial quarantine of girls/women at the times of mensus was strictly followed in an overwhelming majority of Hindu households. Not any more.

Last two decades have seen the emancipation of Indian women to highest degree possible with the advent of the computers – and today India boasts of largest number of commercial pilots in the entire world. We have had a woman prime minister. We do now proudly have a woman for Defence minister. It is absurd and hypocritical that women must continue to be barred from Sabarimala for the only reason they are in their fertile years.

Hindu Dharma has in practice, some weird customs and prejudices against women. Women cannot enter Puja/perform Puja/go to temples during the time of menstruation. Conditioned from birth to adhere to these unwritten norms, most of us women find it difficult to go against these unfair practices. The tide is turning, albeit slowly.

So I can understand the furore the Sabarimala verdict has unleashed in our midst.  Quite understandably. Let it be the individual’s choice therefore, to go or not to go to Sabarimala (when a woman is between 10 and 50 years). It is unfortunate that even the very learned Hindu mind cannot distinguish the difference between religiosity-ritualism and the essence of spirituality. Both may be mutually exclusive! Just like most Hindus cannot differentiate between Shastras and Sampradhayas. Shastras may be the fixed code but the Sampradhayas are localized customs changeable from time to time. Shastras hold over eons, not the Sampradhayas which are enforced practices and disciplines.

The courts in India have been interfering in Hindu affairs for long. This may be for good and bad. After all, we had to enact a legislation to allow the Dalits into our temples so the courts have ever since had a defining role to play in the case of Hindu worship as well as it when it comes to Hindu women. However, the same courts seem to be blind to the fate of Indian muslim women. Or is it a deliberate lapse? Who dares to bell the cat???

May be one day not in long future, we may be able to look back at Sabarimala and laugh our hearts out. After all, my mother had attended college in early 1960s. Fifty two years back my mother (who is no more) was not only a working woman, she was also legal heir to landed estate inheriting her parents’ home as their daughter. Hindu women did not decry equal rights to property or right to remarry/divorce or right to education/employment. So why now the hue and cry for Sabarimala.

Hopefully the dust will settle soon in Sabarimala as women and men in India wake up to reality and discovering true spirituality. God really cares whether we are menstruating when in His abode?!

REPEAL : IPC 497 AND IPC 377 

The Supreme court also has scraped the Adultery Law and legalized the Same Sex Relationship. Kudos to Indian judiciary!

https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/india/adultery-no-longer-a-criminal-affair-supreme-court-rules/articleshow/65987102.cms

https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/india/sc-verdict-on-section-377-all-you-need-to-know/articleshow/65695884.cms

The decriminalization of Adultery and Homosexual relationships is seeing the social media having a field day with abuses and guffaws traded freely online.

A flurry of activity, as if, if not for IPC 497, every single Indian man/woman would now be engaged in extra-maritals! Section 497 that most of us were blissfully unaware of all these days in its existent form, is now hot topic for debate. Repealing of the Act is ‘believed’ to upset the apple cart of the typical Indian family, with restraints thrown to air. Legal sanction for unholy nexuses !!! Just like America !!!

The other landmark ruling pertains to legalizing the same sex relationships. It takes one single faulty chromosome after all, to determine whether you are a homosexual/lesbian or a heterosexual. The third sex has always irked the conscience of the custodians of morality in Indian society. Never mind, homosexuality is NOT taboo in Hindu dharma.

Why must our judiciary have anything to do with morality and ethics of individuals? The courts business is legality of matters, nothing more. Indian society is now mature enough to appreciate and respect individuals’ space and freedom and conscious choices. The courts can have no more say in our private matters.

AADHAR : REPEAL OF SECTION 57

There is not a single one amongst us who have not had to rush for linking Aadhar (identity) Card with our bank accounts, IT (income tax) Returns filings, PAN, Investments, Insurances, Property documents etc., etc., in the last couple of years. Running from pillar to post to meet deadline after deadline, it comes as relief that Aadhar will now be INCLUSIVE and not exclusive as it was supposed to be. However, acquiring one’s PAN (personal assessment number) and filing of IT returns  make Aadhar reference/identification/authentication mandatory. The catch is there but the relaxation comes as a breather. Exemption is granted for opening bank accounts, acquiring a SIM card, securing school admissions etc. Once again a good judgement which will make Aadhar less rigid and intimidating and more functional and user-friendly.

https://www.timesnownews.com/business-economy/economy/article/niti-aayog-ceo-unhappy-with-supreme-court-s-verdict-to-scrap-section-57-of-aadhaar-act/291700

https://www.timesnownews.com/business-economy/companies/article/aadhaar-verdict-how-striking-off-section-57-impacts-firms-like-paytm-jio/290716

However, keeping in view India’s security, whether the supreme court verdict will have an adverse impact is something to keep a tab on. Let us leave it to the hands of experts or Arnab Goswami 😀

The Marina Is My Grandfather’s Property; Stop Erecting Mausoleums On The Beach!

LIBERATE THE MARINA NOW!

It is very irresponsible on the part of any political party in India/Tamil Nadu to turn the beach into tasteless and macabre mausoleum for our dead and long gone chief ministers. As a resident of Chennai where my family is rooted for generations, I have every right to object to this shameful and selfish act of our government. A bad precedent was set and it is being nurtured by the day. It is time we the public, put a complete full stop to this dangerous, maniacal trend.

Moreover mausoleums are for muslims who celebrate their dead as we see from remnants of Moghul India, brought into practice by the Afghans who seized Delhi throne by terror just like their contemporaries today who are intimidating the world.

Hindus over 95% cremate their dead. Now even the funeral wood pyre is prohibited for environmental reasons and only electric crematoriums are in use. The electric ones burn the dead to ashes in matter of minutes and don’t even leave bones that remain in manual wood pyres. The second day the ashes are collected (along with bones if any) by families to be immersed in the sea. Some may safe keep the ashes for immersion in river Ganga or the Indian ocean or to be strewn in the Himalayas. That is it. No trace of you. Only records can prove your existence. Leave without a trace not burdening Mother Earth even for an extra second. This is unwritten Hindu philosophy.

Only ‘Mahans’ and a very negligible percentage of Hindus bury their dead. Mahans mostly opt for ‘Jeev samadhi’ – preferring to be buried alive as in the case of Hindu saints and sages. Modern day Gurus suffering from selective amnesia however conveniently pass this off! How interesting it would be to watch today’s glam gurus rolling in billions embrace Jeev Samadhi (in future)! In fact I challenge Baba Ramdev, Sadhguru, Sri Sri, the leading spiritual gurus of India to attainment of this unparalleled and supreme height of spiritual elevation !!!

No Hindu king has a memorable Samadhi or burial place like the Moghuls do or the ancient Egyptians have until today in the form of Pyramids. Building a memorial may not be exactly anti-Hindu as we do not have a code of conduct or laws to adhere to – it suffices that this is just not the case. Mahatma Gandhi and independent India’s first prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru are rare exceptions to have memorials even if they were cremated. Most of their ashes were immersed in and around India and a small token may be resting in their Samadhis, nothing more.

The Dravidian leaders might have called themselves atheists in spite of their covert Hindu beliefs and with their families clinging to faith contradicting their ideologies, yet they were also against rituals and memorials for the dead. In that case, why must they want to remain immortal. Why this clamour to go into history. Is this useless vanity Dravidian like Ravana’s? None in my generation cares for Anna Durai the state’s first Dravidian party CM. Neither did we know of Kamaraj or Rajaji except from our text books. Even if the past leaders may get familiar with our school children through history classes, it is not possible for the future generations to connect with them on any plane. Our next generation cannot even identify with the thespians of Tamil film industry MGR (MGR also our ex chief minister) and Shivaji Ganesan even if the timeless heroes’ images are etched in celluloid for posterity. Public memory is shortest and the attention span is sinking to pathetic new lows. Ten to twenty years from now on, who can identify with our ex chief ministers Karunanidhi or Jayalalitha. If we have to have memorials, we have to have from ancient Tamil Kings from millennia before. History and literature is all we have to remind us of them and narrate to us their glorious past. We never needed the graves. The graves are for the insecure who desperately want to go into history like the Moghuls. This is not our Sanathana Dharma. Mahans and Sants especially the Jains are selfless truly spiritual wonders of India who are a rare exception. Their breed is dwindling and almost non existent today.

Hopefully Tamil Nadu elects a responsible government in near future that will see the idiocy and sycophancy behind the erections of these mausoleums and raze them to dust one fine morning.

Let the Marina be free of scheming politicians and their dirty politics. Let the breathtakingly beautiful Marina of yesteryears be returned to the public – to walk on and play and enjoy evening life that comes free of cost to our citizens. Chennai is the world’s uninterrupted second longest beach on records. These graves are not only an eye sore but are totally an illegal encroachment (even if Chennai corporation may ratify things later), harmful to the natural environment of the city.

It is my dream to see the beach restored to its former pristine beauty and returned to the public – tax paying, honest citizens of India, residents of Chennai. At the end of a tired working day, the beach is one place we can rewind without having to expend much from our pockets. Beach is free entertainment, especially for the lower middle class. Cruel and thoughtless on anyone’s part to deny even a part of the beach to the public, closing it to lawful denizens of the nation.

****************************************************

Growing up in the sea side of Mylapore, walking 2 km to beach thrice or more times every week in summer was no big deal for me. As a PG student at University of Madras, my class room overlooked the beach, lulling us girls and boys to afternoon siesta, as the sea breeze would set in by 2 pm. Memories of the beach are like a treasure even if I may not be a regular to Chennai beach these days. We have a beach here in Middle East, but this is shallow. Chennai beach is dangerous with its monstrous waves. Super exciting. The beach is a rich repository of sea shells and crabs. Waves on New moon/Full moon days may reach over 6 to 10 feet in height. No wonder the city was devastated by the Tsunami of 2004 washing away cricket playing kids and morning walkers/joggers in hundreds into the sea. Every time there is a cyclonic storm (which is many times every monsoon), the sea level rises menacingly and threatens the metro with destruction, yet a Madrasi’s love for the beach always remains a constant. Some parts of the city beach especially the far flung areas, are nesting grounds for Olive Riddley turtles. The suburban beaches are now private property leased to posh beach resorts. Which makes it all the more unfair for the government to clamp down on the public space of beach erecting unwanted mausoleums on precious sands of the Marina. Every square centimeter of the Marina lost to a Chennaiite is a huge, immense irreparable loss to humanity, in violation of the Environment and Human Rights. Politicians and bureaucrats and their families can vacation in Singapore, Australia and Switzerland. Where will the middle class Madrasi go.

Note: Chennai is also a natural harbour, a very important port in Asia. After Chennai, the next approachable port is the faraway Singapore.

 

Rounding off this post with a beautiful beach duet shot in the Marina in the 1960s for the runaway hit musical ‘Kadhalikka Neramillai.’

Development in Karnataka: Lessons on Democracy

As I am following up the  declaration of results in Karnataka state assembly elections in tv news channels, I am astounded by the audacity of Kumaraswamy of JD (Janata Dal – 39 seats out of 224,) claiming his stake to form a government with Congress (76 seats) support (Independents win 2 seats). The idea is clearly to outwit BJP (105 seats) by any means. The Congress opting to forego the Chiefministership in favour of a greedy Janata Dal’s Kumaraswamy (CM candidate) is an indicator as to how low the power hungry politicians can stoop to and the way underhand deals determine Indian politics. Congress president Sonia Gandhi seems to be in thick of things, having rung Deve Gowda, father of Kumaraswamy and helmsman of the JD to broker the deal. People of Karnataka distinctly cast their votes in favour of JD, over Congress (or even BJP for that matter). There is no ethical ground for JD to even be in the race when it comes to government formation. JD’s Deve Gowda, ex Indian PM, infamous for high level of corruption in his short tenure literally blackmailed the then Janata government at the center to yield to his pressure to similarly back a minority government that he headed on round-turn basis after V P Singh and Chandrashekhar, if my memory serves right. Minority governments are fine so long as the the party that bags maximum seats stakes a claim to form government. JD with a mere  39 seats going for the kill exposes the underbelly of Indian democracy. It is amazing that no form of governing model is foolproof even in mature electorates. India is world’s largest democracy. A text book case by all means. A perfect study. But India is also an experimental ground for democracy for decades now. We expose the flaws in the implementation of democracy as none does. Is this because, we leapt straight into the race enmasse. Should we have started out with adult franchise initially. The earliest Congress governments of the Nehru-Gandhi dynasty cashed in on the goodwill of the masses to their own selfish benefits. Unlike the Congress leaders, rebel freedom fighters like Nethaji Subhas Chandra Bose advocated adult franchise for India to begin with. That would have served India to great and distinctive advantage.

This is outright misuse of people’s mandate: the shameless manipulation and underestimation of the democratic process. The Karnataka scenario is a warning of things to come in future. This is why each and every Hindu must cast his/her vote. For the educated Hindu elite, it is beneath him/her to walk to the polling booth to exercise his/her franchise. Unlike Hindus, the minority of India never fail to cast their votes, turning up in droves at the election centers.

It is only until Hindu population is over 49% that the Hindus have a hope. The day we sink below this critical mark, India will fall into the hands of terrorists and evangelists and degenerate into the next Pakistan. We do not have to wait for the population swing. Even a hung parliament similar to present Karnataka crisis could do us in and catapult the Congress back into charge. This is all we need to let the evangelists gate crash in and the terror outfits to get emboldened. Held in check for 5 years now, these anti-nationals are bound to be back with a vengeance wrecking havoc in their trail. Modi’s BJP government has been a nightmare to NGO fundraisers who were on a conversion spree in India and for hawala racketeers who were having a free run flush with terror fundings.

Democracy and secularism in India depend on the DEMOGRAPHY of India first and foremost.  In every single blog post of mine, I am underscoring this vital point (whether I have readers or not).

Karnataka trends are still emerging, and knowing Indian politics, one will not be surprised by behind-the-doors horse trading. What a mockery of democracy.

Closing the post with a heavy heart as ex- cricketer cum present Punjab minister Navjot Siddhu gets acquitted this day by a Supreme Court verdict. Siddhu was appealing against a high court ruling where he was awarded a sentence for a road rage murder charge dating back by some 30 years. Since a word against our judiciary may amount to contempt of court, I am resting my case here.

Sad day for India. I hope I do not live to see the Hindus becoming minority in my country in my own time.

PS: As I close the post, it is still undecided whether it will be BJP of JD government in Karnataka. Let Dharma prevail.

If Congress can back JD’s Kumaraswamy with appalling and dismal 39 seats to form government to wield power from behind the scenes, then Bharatiya Janata Party by all means can resort to equal measures fit in their capacity, to run the state for next 5 years. They have the ethical, moral ground to stake their legitimate claim. Karnataka battle will be decided in a day or two.

A friend’s observation: In India, it is those who score 35% border pass who are deemed eligible for medical/IIT admissions as per reservation, never those who slog and secure 100%. The same holds true for government jobs. The quota candidates shamelessly, without an ounce of guilt, and in fact royally, claim their stakes while the meritorious watch helpless. The substandard meritless however are media-endorsed in India. Karnataka politics just proved why India is a hopeless case.

The Invisible Foreign Hand: Conversions

The Breaking India Forces At Work In North East

This is merely the tip of the iceberg: in continuation of posts on the scourge of Conversion in India. Limiting the scope here to North East and Kerala.

The British did not decamp in entirety from India in 1947, with the Christian missionaries in the country opting to stay put spreading the gospel. Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru’s Congress government apparently had no issues on that. Prime minister Nehru, with his communist Defence minister and cabinet ally V R Krishna Menon who could be singly held responsible for Sin0-Indian war of 1962, was bent on projecting the secular face of India at the expense of conversion of vast majority of North East Indians to Christianity, in miraculous span of a couple of decades. The  Christian missionaries who were by this time deeply entrenched in the hilly tracts of the east Himalayan states, did not stop with their evangelical work in sovereign Indian soil. They were also actively engaged on the other hand in abetting openly the Nagas to seek their independence from the newly constituted Indian union on the basis of religion to whose ’cause’ the British government claimed to be ‘sympathetic.’ The economic and military support that armed the Nagas to the teeth must have misguided the Nagas. It is no surprise that the British when they left India also generously offered similar ‘friendly pacts’ to small Hindu princes whose kingdoms were unilaterally fused with the union of India, by the sheer will of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, the Home Minister and Deputy PM. Kashmir is a case in point. Kashmir would not have gone to the United Nations if not for India’s last serving British Governor General, Mount Batten. Lessons learned from Kashmir probably helped India when it came to dealing with Nagaland. British journalists were writing of the ‘Naga plight’ in their national dailies (among other concerns of theirs about India whose survival was predicted not beyond ‘five years’ by none other than prime minister Winston Churchill.) The British government no doubt underestimated the newly resurgent independent India, advising the young Indian nation to ‘let go of the Naga.’ Phizo, the chief rebel Naga leader of NNC (Naga National Council) was granted political asylum in Britain. Ever since, Nagaland has been a thorn in our flesh, with our tribal brethren alienated from us on widespread conversion, wanting to sever ties with the Indian republic. Nagas have exercised their adult franchise in the past with rest of India, yet the divisive lines have always been left open like festering wounds.

This tweet gives one a picture of the level of Christian conversion taking place in Nagaland from before 1947 and how it went unchecked for decades after independence, with foreign missionaries pumping in NGO funding and extending moral support.

Once a majority of populace in any state in India is converted to non-Hindu/non Indic such as Abrahamic with Middle Eastern origin, it may be possible to entrap/enroll them in larger schemes such as ‘Breaking India’ missions. Nagaland could never have been independent but would have been absorbed by China. Kashmir can never been independent. Its strategic location would make it the next Afghanistan in no time (if not for India). The buffer states of Kashmir and North East India do not only function as shock absorbers securing and safe-guarding the rest of India, but are also preventing themselves from turning into next casualty, on the strength derived from Force India.

Nagaland geography is another critical point. Sandwiched between China and East Pakistan (now Bangladesh), Nagaland and the even the rest of the north-east, is a security issue for India. The unsolved Naga equation has been an irritant for Indian nation for long. The entire North East India is a sensitive strip.

One cannot help quoting in this context, the UK’s war with Argentina at the start of the 1980s, for Falkland Islands which must legitimately belong to the South American nation. The havoc the British have wrecked in their erstwhile colonies leaving loopholes deliberately unplugged with an intent to cause trouble at a future date, is now coming to surface as evident in Sri Lanka, Malaysia etc where (violent) communal strifes have erupted in recent years. The Englishman played one ethnic group against another before going back home for good. Legacy of the British policy of ‘Divide and Rule.’

The BJP win in Nagaland raises hope. The Nagas have finally come home. It may not be too late either to correct the injustices and mistakes committed by the Congress government for 60 long years in the Seven-Sister-States of India. A ‘Gharwapsi’ is our legitimate right. A reversal of the conditions back to pre-missionary era should hardly raise the liberals’ eyebrows.

The BJP sweep in North East leaves Kerala as the single and only remaining Communist state of India. The 20+ years of Communist regime in the state of Tripura has been brought to a close.

Like the North Eastern India, Kerala too is victim to calculated and widespread conversion (to Christianity).

In the case of Kerala, I am to deal with a peculiar issue here that hardly draws the attention of our government or agencies that it deserves.

I have been been following a few Elephant care groups in the social media Facebook. The unnatural, abnormal concern  of foreign nationals for the Indian elephants sparked my interest. It is with utmost certainty that I can vouch that, one hundred percent all the Elephant care groups in India are Evangelical missions sponsored by foreign church. To mention a case in point: Kerala Suffering Elephants. A quick browsing of the group’s content and members will reveal the vested interest of these foreign Christian evangelists/missionaries strangely in Indian elephants that are employed in service of Kerala Hindu temples (for centuries now as part of local custom and traditions). Now the domesticated elephants in Kerala are not restricted to Hindu temples; Churches and Mosques too use elephants for their festivals, however one finds no mention of Elephants maltreated and misused in non-Hindu places of worship.

The Christian missionaries in India are starting to feel the pinch, as the Modi government has successfully blocked the funding of hundreds of fake NGOs who were dubiously funding conversions in India. Kerala Communist government turns a blind eye to the shocking horror and reality unfolding in the state which could have a drastic impact on the future of the state which was overwhelmingly Hindu even at the time of our independence. Today, the Hindus of the state have been reduced to a minority due to flawed communist policies giving a free hand to overseas missions to carry out uncontrolled and unregulated conversions.

With one after  the other most avenues of funding closed, it is easy guess that the evangelists both local and foreign are targeting the Hindu temples using the Indian Elephants as their front. I am an Elephant lover myself. However it is not difficult for me to blow the cloak of the evangelist missions who are trying to wage a war on India on a different and altogether unbelievable front.

While the concern for the endangered species is appreciated, is it not ironic that almost all the foreign members of the Kerala Elephant  groups happen to have church connections. In a recent post in one more Elephant care group based in Africa, it was revealed how some fake Facebook groups in Europe and USA were duping the gullible, inviting them to fund Elephant conservation.

The multi-pronged threats faced by India from every direction one can think of, is alarming. The missionaries are clearly cooling their heels waiting for the return of the Congress government which will undoubtedly give them a free run with funding for conversion in the country. Unabated conversions were happening until the BJP formed the government. Even as of today, illegal conversions are taking place in every state of India including Tamil Nadu. The last time I visited home, I was shocked to learn two of my friends’ maids had been bribed to conversion by ‘Aseervadham’ church in Anna Nagar, Chennai. In Pulla Avenue, I was witness to evangelists going shop to shop offering bribes for conversions to petty shop owners and pavement stall holders.

This when they talk about the Saffron surge and VHP and Shiv Sena and RSS and Hindutva. Right under the nose of Bharatiya Janata Party.

JESUS CHRIST CONVERTS TO HINDUISM

Jesus Christ embraces ‘Sanathana Dharma’

Here is a ringside view of the systematic appropriation of Hindu culture by the Christians, daylight robbery of our ‘Shastra-Sampradhaya’ from Sanskrit scriptures-Mantras to Temple architecture and Puja (Service) rites, Customs and Rituals to Music-Dance-Art forms and Religious Philosophy.

Om Yesuvaya Vidhmahe, Mary Putraya Dheemahi;

Thanno Jesus Prachodayaath!

Elephant (yes) baptized in Kerala church

THE VATICAN’S CULTURAL TERRORISM IN INDIA continues unabated as Christian missionaries sponsored by Rome are taking conversions to all new heights of idiocy and sycophancy.

Cultural appropriation from Hinduism is a shameless strategy that the brown converted Christians of India, slaves to their English masters, seem to have perfected.

With Jesus Saharanama (in lieu of Vishnu Sahasranama) and Christian Bharat Natyam and Christian Yoga, they are leaving no stone unturned to forward the Joshua mission, which is conversion of entire Hindu India to Christianity in near future.

http://www.hindupost.in/news/compilation-christian-appropriation-hindu-culture/

The link is not exhaustive but is a fair listing of shocking conversion strategies by Christian evangelists whose sponsors are European countries and America.

VIDEO EVIDENCE OF A SOCIAL SABOTAGE : Here is a conversion-live reporting to foreign clients taking place right at Tirumala-Tirupathi, the holy abode of Lord Balaji/Venkateshwara, an important pilgrimage center for Hindus. In the name of Democracy and Secularism, we Hindus have to tolerate this nonsense. A mild reaction on our part could get us labelled communal, because the sponsors here are white American-Europeans who pump in their retirement benefits into third world nations for conversion of natives. This heinous anti-nationalism by way of Cultural Terrorism never finds its way to Indian media or world press.

Mother Theresa, the Conversion machinery

Mother Theresa was infamous for conversion by death bed, something the Vatican and local converted Christians might prefer to overlook. What mattered most was the numbers.

The Catholic Syrian Bank HQ in Thrissur sits on leased land from Vadakkunathan Temple for a pittance. Will the property be returned to the temple Devaswom. Swathes of Kerala temple lands have found their way into Church missions from around Pattanamthitta (Sabaramala Aiyappa temple nearby) all the way to Thiruvananthapuram.

Seerani Arangam’ the open air stage in the Chennai Marina, demolished overnight by JayalalithaJ’s (Tamil Nadu) government 

The Seerani Arangam had long since become a free-preaching ground in the beach for the Christian missionaries who would swoop down on it weekend after weekend drawing crowds, promising instant cures for ailments and such medical miracles upon conversion. For almost a decade the city dwellers were denied the simple pleasure of visiting the beach on sultry afternoons. The entire beach road turned to conversion trap filled with garbage christian preaching noises that would be an assault on your senses. The area would be cordoned off and held unapproachable from all directions by some 2-3 km. The beach was becoming the private property of the Chrisitans. Weekends forget the beach, this was what we Chennaiites had to endure in the 1990s unless otherwise you wanted to sing along ‘Hallehlujah!’ Height of Christian atrocities in Chennai. In the name of Democracy where the majority passive Hindus were mute spectators even as injustice and intolerance got unleashed in our midst.

The only (and perhaps coward) way the government could deal with it sans a commotion was, to tear down the stage in the middle of the night and thus deprive the evangelists the chance to hold entire beach crowds of Chennai to ransom. But not before enough damage was done.

Earlier the stage used to be rotated between the Dravidian political parties during election times, to address crowds. Soon the missionaries took over the stage in the 1990s and created a nightmare that finally came to an end with the stage bulldozed by the PWD officials. Kudos to Amma!

DESIGNS FOR INDIA: AMBITIOUS ‘JOSHUA PROJECT’

CATHOLIC CHURCH, THE LARGEST REAL ESTATE HOLDER IN INDIA.

This does not auger well for a growing nation like India in the long run. It is time, the Church estates in India are audited as also the Waqf boards. It is necessary to carry out nationalizations wherever possible. India, in spite of its image of poverty, is the seventh top nation as far as world GDP is concerned.  We are the fastest growing economy, surpassing China. We need no sponsors or aid from either the Vatican or America or Britain. We can take care of themselves. India is facing a strange situation for refusing NGOs and foreign funding, do you believe?

The Center, under PM Modi, has been getting tougher with NGOs like the Ford Foundation etc. World Vision, UNICEF, CRY … these are only a few charity names that cloak the real danger of conversion.

Christian cultural terrorism is as sinister as Islamic terrorism in India. The Abrahamic faiths have proved to be the cancer of our society. If we cannot get rid of or cure ourselves of this malaise (malice?) in entirety, let us at least strive to limit the lesion from spreading far and wide.

The democracy of India is incumbent upon the demography of India first and foremost. In each and every single blog post of mine, I would like to underscore the brave truth. India shall be a socialist, democratic republic only as long as we Hindus constitute the majority.
