Hindu Samhati’s Facebook Friends Meet in Delhi ignites youths

September 22, 2013 happens to be different in the saga of Hindu struggle across India as on the same day the national capital of New Delhi witnessed the Facebook Friends Meet organized by Hindu Samhati in Hindu Mahasabha Bhawan at Mandir Marg. Hindu Samhati is no more a new name and within five years of its formal initiation in Kolkata, it has become a household name in several districts of rural Bengal owing its own perseverance, fervidness to save Hindus in the state from the surge of Islamic communalism vitiating the culture, basis of the state extremely. 

To make people in Delhi grasp the reality and how Hindu Samhati is fighting against all predicaments in Bengal the convention was organized. A good number of youths attended the meeting and interacted with the panel of speakers and among themselves. 

People who spoke on the occasion included Tapan Ghosh (president, Hindu Samhati), Sandhya Jain, ML Gupta, Priyadarshi Dutta.

Hindu aggression only hope to stop Slaughtering and Smuggling of Cows

Cow in Hindu Dharma earns a special status and is synonymous to divinity. It is not looked down on as an animal but as the truest incarnation of mother – a mother who is venerated for her infinite love and protective nature to her own offspring. According to Hindu mythology, Gavu means cow while shala denotes shed or home and all gods (Devata Devi) dwell in a cow.  Even the holy cow Kaamdhenu turned up following churning of cosmic ocean. If one has to realize the basis of this divinity, he must go through profundity of Vedas. In Book VI of Rig Veda, Hymn XXVIII attributed to  Rishi Bhardwaja, glorifies the virtue of the cow whereas in Atharva Veda (Book X, Hymn 10), cow is designated as Vishnu; she is also mentioned here as “all that the Sun surveys.” Kautilya in Arthshastra (Chapter XXIX) is also found to laud the divine character of cow.

But all these noble nature come to a halt in contemporary India where cow has become the greatest casualty.  Islamists do not miss a single opportunity to insult Hindus and in this context, slaughtering of cows is the first and best option to them. Gone are the days when Hindu perspective used to dominate the Indian political scene. Cashing in on pathetic nonchalance of Hindus, importance of minority votes, to be precise Muslim votes, has gained unimaginable significance. As a result, both slaughter and smuggling of cows have surged but the administration, under the aegis of “secular” political parties, remains silent altogether. And this surreptitious maneuver incites Islamists to open slaughter houses of cows far and wide vitiating the environment.       

Can this be stopped? This single question haunts a sane Hindu mind repeatedly when myriad instances of flouting court orders to prohibit open slaughtering of cows especially on the day of Bakri Id are readily available.   On November 2, 2011, by the decision bench headed by Chief Justice of Kolkata, Mr J. N. Patel and Mr. Ashim Kumar Roy (J), the Cow Slaughter on Bakri Id and trading of Cattle for sacrifice at Cattle markets was banned by the Hon’ble Calcutta High Court. The historic judgment stated in clear terms “the all Officials of the State and local bodies have no power to facilitate holding of markets for trading of cattle for sacrifice and also the movement of cattle for the said purpose on the occasion of Id-uz-Zoha festival to be celebrated on 7th, November, 2011.” But by now the order has fallen through. Slaughtering and smuggling of cows is no more a covert but an overt affair and almost on a daily basis, such reports are found from different parts of Bengal. It is a steady affair leading to communal disturbances at different areas.

Violation of court judgments does not urge administration to take up apposite measures and venerate the Role of Judiciary in an independent country like India (ever ready to laud itself as the largest democracy in the globe). In this situation, are incidents like riots in Muzaffarnagar in Uttar Pradesh too unexpected? It resulted from the harassment of a Hindu girl and murders of Hindu boys for protesting.

Perhaps, Hindus have learnt at last that trust on Role of Democracy and Judiciary in India is nothing save for stupidity. As democracy defines the canon that the numerical majority of an organized group can make decisions binding on the whole group, Hindus are also realizing the need of exerting force. If Hindus become both militant and dominant, it’s the failure of Indian democracy only.

Surely, there is the need of more combativeness to stop slaughtering and smuggling of cows. Indian legal system has failed miserably by now to check this escalating menace.

United States’ overt antagonism to India in 1971

Without doubt, India’s relation with the United States ever from her independence in 1947 has been cryptic and India’s increasing tilt towards Soviet Union till its dissolution in 1991 aggravated the situation only. And the vengeance of it was displayed at different spheres of global political arena be it India-China conflict in 1962 or India-Pakistan war in 1965. But all these were outperformed by America’s overt antagonism to India during its violent face-off with Pakistan on the issue of Bangladesh in 1971. The conflict not only challenged the global political balance but put forward the rise of a third political force in it greatly. What United States had feared was the rise of a strong, virile India and its (then) growing linkup with Soviet Union would have energized the socialist block in particular. Keeping all these in mind United States initiated its most pernicious strategy to uproot India through beefing up Pakistan during the 1971 war in every capacity.

When US supported Pak military bloodshed in Bangladesh

More than four decades ago, the Nixon Administration knowingly broke US law to help Pakistani army against Bangladesh and encouraged China to mass troops on Indian border to oppose the strong stand taken by the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, according to a new book. 

In his latest book, Princeton historian Gary Bass 'The Blood Telegram: Nixon, Kissinger and a Forgotten Genocide' documents how the then US President Richard Nixon and his Secretary of State Henry Kissinger supported Pakistan military dictatorship as it brutally quashed the results of a historic free election. 

The Pakistani army launched a crackdown on East Pakistan, killing hundreds of thousands of people and sending ten million refugees fleeing to India - one of the worst humanitarian crisis of the 20th century. 

The author writes in the latest book, which is scheduled to hit the book market on September 24, how Nixon-Kissinger hated both India and Indira Gandhi and tried their level best to oppose the strong moral stand taken by the then Indian Prime Minister. 

Nixon and Kissinger thought in Cold War terms but also indulged in their personal disdain for India and its leader Indira Gandhi, Bass writes in the book, adding that they even secretly encourages China to mass troops on their India border, and illegally supplied weapons to the Pakistani military, all while censoring American officials who dared to speak up. 

Based on previously unheard White House tapes, the book gives a fresh insight into the Nixon-Kissinger hatred against Indira Gandhi, and how the then American leadership supported the butchering of innocent people, who dared to speak their voice and vote against Islamabad. 

As India under the strong leadership of Indira Gandhi decided to rescue the lives of people of then East Pakistan from the brutality of the Pakistani military, Bass writes in the book - running into nearly 500 pages - that Kissinger proposed three "dangerous" initiatives against India. 

"The United States would illegally allow Iran and Jordan to send squadrons of US aircraft to Pakistan, secretly asks China to mass its troops on the Indian border, and deploy a US aircraft carrier group to the Bay of Bengal to threaten India. He urged Nixon to stun India with all three moves simultaneously," Bass wrote.
