COMMON GROUND FOR A HINDU RAASHTRA and STORM CLOUDS FROM THE PSEUDO SECULARISTS
Dr. Babu Suseelan
DIRECTOR, INDIAN AMERICAN INTELLECTUALS FORUM
Since I have written an article “Why we should declare India as a Hindu Rashtra”, I have received several emails, letters and comments both positive and negative from our friends and foes. It was expected.
Some of the comments are violent, virulent, vicious, vacuous, deceptive and diabolical. Some made predatory and genocidal comments and threats. These phony secularists offer only lip service to our Vedic ideals. Suffering Hindus mean nothing to them. Truth, real facts, honesty, integrity and creative ideas make no more sense to them.
Let us examine several erroneous flaws (points) held by several secular Hindus. One liberal secular Hindu from Bangalore wrote; “Who will declare India as a Hindu Rashtra?” Many people, Christians, Marxists, and secularists, Muslims live in Bhaarat. As a Hindu, we should support and respect their opinions no matter how poorly they declare and conceal their intentions.
Rejoinder: Respect does not mean that an opinion is right. More importantly the right to hold an opinion or blind faith does not guarantee its truth, or that is as valid as our opinions. In India, people have the right to have their own opinions, and all ideas are subject to critical examination.
A secular lady from Mumbai wrote that “your thoughts and ideas are often just against Muslims and Christians. I have so many Muslim and Christian friends”
Rejoinder: You may have Muslims and Christians and Marxists as your friend. There may be truth to this claim. However, the spirit of critical thinking has the impetus to explore such issues. They usually come up with slick, simplistic massages that proclaim some unfounded truth, and get fertile ground for many prejudices that promote distorted thinking including terrorism and coercive religious conversion.
Another Hindu from New Delhi wrote “can you solve all the problems of corruption, power shortage food scarcity, unemployment by declaring India as a Hindu Rashtra?” What do we do with converted Christians and Muslims in the country? Hindus are faced with severe problems and many Hindus have a special style of their own. They encompass fallacies, behavior that detracts from critical thinking and fall prey to such traps.
One lady who claims to be devoted to Sai Baba claimed to be a real Hindu who believes in Truth Is One and many call it by different names”. She accused me that I am not a real Hindu.
Few phony liberal Hindus are over-committed to pseudo secular ideology. There are times when such over commitment can become both limiting and all consuming. Excessive commitment to pseudo secularism can be seen among some Marxist Hindus, phony liberals, atheists and few secular Swamis. Their excessive commitment to pseudo secularism does not allow new ideas to enter their minds. They perceive everything through their lens of pseudo secularism (attribution Creep) rather than objective lens.
Once over commitment and confirmation to pseudo secularism are established, zealousness is not far behind. Under this spell, individual Hindus either refuse to listen to counter arguments (A closed mind) or simply cannot understand or accept alternative explanations… Either way, nothing that contradicts their false belief system is allowed in their minds. They rely on one liners and catch phrases and their stance has extraordinarily dangerous implications for our Hindu Rashtra.
Our friends and foes know that India’s plagues and polarization can take time to cure. Declaring India as a Hindu Rashtra is the first step to end the toxic thinking patterns and polarization created by pseudo secularists. We can have a great Indian nation if all Hindus take the concept of Hindu Rashtra seriously and create a positive environment we want o live in and desire our children and grand children to inhabit.
Indians have notoriously suffered from escapism and tolerance. Escapism and irrational tolerance rob us of psychological and political maturity and our wisdom. It is in dealing with reality that one develops the wisdom that begets understanding and it is clear-correct and critical understanding that citizens can mature enough to deal problems on a long term basis with reality. Escapism, irrational tolerance of intolerant people and toxic ideology, and head in the sand approach will lead us into more ignorance and political immaturity.
By declaring India as a Hindu Rashtra, Hindus can practice spiritual Dharma without interference or fear. We can continue our critical thinking, spirit of curiosity, and we can critically examine what is right and wrong, what is good and what is bad for the country. If India is declared as a Hindu Rashtra, Hindus can distinguish among different elements of their own thought process and Hindus can ponder clearly where my link of thought taking me is? Is what I am thinking best for my country?
Nothing less than the freedom, National Identity by culture, and moral principles can ensure economic progress and prosperity. Japan for example has no natural resources of its own… But it is one of the economic giant of the world because Japan is very proud of their culture, national identity and no coercive religious conversion is allowed in the country. Can anyone ever imagine a Vatican agent become a national leader in Japan?
In our ever changing, challenging and dangerous world, the need for right ideas to solve the most pressing problems that facing India has been taken on a new urgency. Declaring India as a Hindu Rashtra will invigorate citizens and creative ideas to solve common human problems.
Everyone in Bharat, young or old, farmer or captain, rich or poor, call Bharat as Bharat Mata. Our Mata will not let us rest. Bharatmata keeps prodding us, challenging us with problems to be solved, and demanding that we act wisely or be destroyed by forces which want Bharat to be destroyed.
But we cannot rest contented with the divisive forces and destructive elements with apocalyptic ideology destabilizing our country inhabited by great Rishis, Acharayas, and sanyasins.
Intervention strategies will be developed automatically once we declare India as a Hindu Rashtra. Strategies to protect our Vedic culture, to preserve our sanathan Dharma will automatically come out and strengthen our resolve. Swami Vivekananda moved swiftly and quickly, traveled all over Bharat from Katmandu to Kanyakumari and laid the foundation for a vibrant Bharat Rashtra. Swami Vivekananda’s ideology of Hindutva has entered upon the new modern era.
If you believe that change is not possible in Bharat, you are not alone. The way politicians in India behave seems to indicate that Indian political organizations and pseudo secular politicians seemed to have vaccinated against any change. It is an isolated place where fresh thinking and departure from pseudo secularism, corruption and illogical arguments are unwelcome. India is the only place in the world where new thinking and innovative ideas are punished, while those committed to maintain Italian, uneducated aupar lady Antonio Maino government, and maintaining Islamic appeasement, Jihad war, coercive religious conversion, corruption and economic downward spiral receive awards from the President and applause from our enemies.
There are no Chanakya, Shivaji Maharajah or Jhansi Rani, Veera Pandya Ktta Bhomman, or. Dr. Ajaya Ghosh with a sword in one hand and new ideas in the other. Nor anyone is like Veer Savarkar or Dr. Hedgewar, or Dr. Ajaya Ghosh with pertinent fiery words demanding change.
The world is changing with new ideas. But Hindus are still in deep sleep refuse to wake up. India is a democratic country and change is possible only through ballot box. And democracy in India elect, reelect anti National, corrupt and criminal politicians like Mayavathy, Lalu Prasad Yadav, Mulayam Singh Yadav, Karunanidhi, and Nithish, and Mamatha Banerji.
In India, the pressure to conform to existing phony secularism, where Muslims and other religious groups are appeased, rewarded for their coercive conversion techniques, subversive activities and terrorism. The pressure to continue existing colonial rule is relentless. Everything seems to be against Hindus who want to promote pluralism tolerance, peace, harmony and tranquility. How can we resist such relentless pressure to continue existing oppression and Hindu slavery?
The first step is to declare India as a Hindu Rashtra.
Each of us has an important responsibility o bring Hindu values to life. Facing the challenge is not easy. Our enemies have spread certain misconceptions about our Dharma, Vedic values and our role to act like a zombie.
We, Hindus have values, beliefs, and a sense of what is right and wrong. They are unique, sublime, noble, and make us different from Muslims, Marxists, Pseudo secularists and Christians. They are what make us humane. But while having principles of Dharma may be natural for Hindus, actually practicing these principles is difficult in a country ruled by Vatican agents, Jihadis, pseudo secularists, and anti national Marxists. Behaving according to our Dharma, spiritual values, and with good intentions is one of the biggest challenges each of us faces everyday in Bharat. It is true for every aspect of Hindu life in Kashmir, West Bengal, Nagaland, Tripura, West Bengal, Tamil Nadu and Kerala from individual life, family life, religious life, education, banking, industry, sports and politics. In every state Hindu temples are controlled by phone secular governments. Temple wealth is looted, temple land is sold by politicians, and religious Hindus have no control on the operations of Temples. Pseudo secular organizations created by the anti Hindu government have their own values, mission, operating principles, and what types of working relationships with political groups they too have. They play a larger part in shaping our behavior than most of us realize.
Declaring India as a Hindu Rashtra we might actually get a whole lot more than we might think. One thing is certain those who cling on to their distorted pseudo secularism, will produce nothing but more frustration, jihadi terrorism, crises, subversive activities, more polarization and perpetuation of the broken system.
So why did I write? Partly, of course, to demonstrate the truth and I value
of my own position as an avowed Hindu. To that extend, I don’t trust many phony Secularists, and leftists.
