FOUNDATION OF INDIA OR BHARAT It is obvious that if a house is built on rock, it will stand longer than the one built on sand. So on what FOUNDATION was our India built on the day she gained independence from the British on August 15, 1947? It is vital for all those who wish well to the survival of India, to ask themselves this question. It is obvious that the foundation of free India was High Treason that led to Partition and the betrayal of Secularism in east and west of the country that led to unconditional surrender of Karachi, Lahore, Dhaka and numerous other towns and cities and nearly one third of her territory in order to create the new ISLAMIC state of Pakistan. The result of such a surrender proved catastrophic for the Hindus and Sikhs living in those areas who suddenly became vulnerable, unsafe and insecure. It is very sad that most information about that year has been suppressed by people in power in India and the general public are ignorant of the truth about that year. Suppressing vital information of this kind is very dangerous for India’s future since even today the same elements, factors and ideological forces are at play in India that led to her Partition in 1947. India needed either to champion Secularism in Lahore, Karachi and Dhaka or write up a new Constitution taking Partition into full account. Now what likelihood do we see of a new Constituton that is based on a new foundation laid on a rock?
Kuru August 26. 2003. ========== Also see below of 15 Aug 03. ======= 15 August 2003. Independence or Partition? Long will the Indians debate this question. There is a cry in wilderness: “Bring back eye witnesses to the burning frontiers in the East and the West, with horrific tales of massacres, rape and abduction, looting and burning of properties across Western and Eastern India. India fell apart on its peripheries. From ONE whole (Akhand) it became THREE fragments. Today instead of one, there are three flags covering the same landscape that the British left on this day in 1947. Where are the eyewitnesses? Most are dead, the others gtone senile or too infirm to recall and relate. There is tremendous loss of history in our case. We can see the Jews, and admire their commitment to the Holocaust. In our case not one but several holocausts have been consigned to the dustbin of history. Perhaps we HINDUS (and SIKHS) value ourselves SO LITTLE.
Where did ONE THIRD OF Indian territory go on that day? What happened to secularism in Dhaka and Karachi? Were we not to DEFEND it there? What was the constitutional status of the MUSLIMS in Partitioned India? What became the constitutional status of a Hindu in East Bengal and of a Sikh in West Punjab? AND WHY?
Perhaps these questions will never be answered, thus laying the ground for the next Holocaust in South Asia.
So on this Day, please spare a thought for TRUTH and not just the glory of Gandhi and Nehru or the victory of Mohammed Ali Jinnah who became the “Father of Pakistan” overnight despite his previous constitutional status as a “loyal” citizen of India.. ======= =======
==== PARADOX OF INDIA
The ancient name of India is Bharat or Hindustan. Yet with all these ancient associations today’s Bharat is jut the shadow of its original self. Repeated foreign invasions left the Hindus politically disoriented and weak. Foreigners were quick to fill in the political vacuum.
Repeated foreign invasions and centuries of slavery under foreign yoke conditioned the Hindus to trust everyone on earth and to lose the distinction between friend and foe. This brainwashing also detached the Hindus from territory and fellow Hindus.
This hypothesis was proven conclusively in 1947 when India surrendered one third of her territory to Islam without protest, retaliation and a single condition. The word “partition” stands deleted in India’s constitution. It is replaced by “Independence.” That day is not the day of Shame or Remembrance but the day of celebration.
Today’s Hindus are excelling in areas where their rulers have no objection. It reminds one of the Soviet days when Lithuania could excel in song, dance and sports but not touch “politics”. The same is true of India today. An average Hindu is busy amassing personal fortune and worshipping his own god or gods but has turned away from “Akhand Bharat”, once a cherished goal. He is committed to his individual “nirvana”, safety of his family and ritualism.
The Hindus are under constraint, or better said, surveillance, by their own rulers to remain secular. Many regard Secularism and Hinduism synonymous. But it should be clear that a true Hindu will think of his territory while a secular Hindus will take no decision without first obtaining the approval of a Muslim (and a Christian) about the future of India.
The great “World Council of Elders of the Ancient Traditions and Cultures” held in Mumbai from 4 till 9 February, 2003, with all the Hindu genius and funding, held on the territory of Hindus, could not fit the word HINDU in its long title. They FEARED that the word “Hindu” would invite criticism from all quarters within Hindustan, mainly from the Catholic Church and the indigenous Muslims whose stance is again as threatening as in the days before Partition of India in 1947. This time they have an advantage. The well organised Catholic Church is an ally of Islam in India since they both perceive the indigenous Hindus to be “common enemy”.
The Pagans of Lithuania ought to stop wandering through the vastness of Hindustan trying to forge meaningful alliances. They will be looking for a needle in a haystack.
One ought to commend to them to look at the communities, hardened by challenges of history like the Pagans of Lithuania themselves, that share their goals and aspirations.
In India communities like the Rajputs, the Marathas and the Sikhs, and several others with similar martial background, have the characteristics and qualities that make them most suitable for such an alliance. No wonder, at the WCER Conference held at Vilnius form 7 till 9 August 2003, all the four delegates from India were from one such community in India. They all hail from the Punjab.
After a close study of Lithuanian social and cultural landscape one comes to the conclusion that such communities in India are the nearest to the Lithuanian Pagans with regard to history of valiant resistance of aggressions and the defence of Dharma (Religion) and Dharti (territory). They were a positive product of centuries old history of brutal invasions of Hindustan from the North West.
The HINDU/SIKH appearance at the WCER conference and their link up with the Pagans of Lithuania has made a very strong contribution to raising the profile and image of the Pagans of Lithuania world wide.
Originally the Sikhs were meant to be the “sword arm” of Hindustan and are still the counterpart of the Pagans of Lithuania. They are held in very high esteem in the true Hindu heart and across Europe, North America and Australia.
There is further need of Pagans of Lithuania going to India and, in particular, to the United Kingdom near by, to see the way the Sikhs live, carry themselves in society and worship in gurudwaras. (“Dwara” is a Lithuanian word meaning a grand house or mansion.)
The Hindus need an input of “Shakti” (force or strength) from the Lithuanian Pagans. At present the so-called secular ruling elite of India are non Hindu who cannot be happy at any true Hindu advancement in the world. The Hindu compulsion to appease and compromise due to centuries of slavery is suicidal.
The Pagans of Lithuania therefore, need to look at specific communities in India, e.g., the Sikhs, the Rajputs, the Marathas, the Tamils, the Gujaratis, and so on, to forge meaningful co-operation in the future. Our challenge is to bring them IN.
At this Conference, out of 25 states in India only ONE, the Punjab, was represented. One asked, “Where was Maharashtra?, Where was Gujerat?, Where was Tamil Nadu? Where was Kerala? Where was Uttra Pradesh (U.P.)?
It is vital to seek out some spirited Hindu groups on Internet and then to join them giving regular input from the Pagan perspective. There are many and they are all run by very spirited Hindus. They are all waiting to learn about the Pagans of Lithuania and they are all interested in promoting links with the Pagans of Lithuania. Let us meet the challenge.
As a first step I commend a visit by a Pagan group to some great Hindu temple in India for inspiration. Sadly there are still so few. The grand temples at Ayodhya, Varanasi and Mathura are waiting to be re-built. For the present, it can be Golden Temple in Amritsar. From it one can see how the old Pagan temples once dotted the landscape of the whole world, not only in Bharat, before they were razed to ground by the intolerant invaders and conquerors. The sight of the Temple, and the devotees, is very uplifting, indeed, to any true Hindu on earth. 9 August 2003.[_private/ftarc.htm]
