"I am trying to convert Hindus back to Hindu religion and that will stop Hindus getting converted to other religions." -- Swami Chinmayananda
Whatever the Missionaries say or do !

Whatever the missionaries say or do, India has been a Hindu country since time immemorial, since the time of our Vedic sages more than 5,000 years ago. And  it will continue to be so simply because the inclusive nature of the religion has a built in ethos which is not contrived or used merely for political purposes. There have been countless invasions, and two major Occupations (the Islamic and the colonial British), but they have not seriously dented the Hindu ethos of the subcontinent, despite forced conversions, torture and terror and  from the Christian side endless propaganda (supported by the colonial government) and the horrors of the Goa Inquisition of the 16th century. And now the attempt to attack Hinduism in a variety of sophisticated ways.

This is not to say that the ‘asuric forces’ (phrase coined by a Hindu in the diaspora) should be taken lightly. The book Breaking India (2010) by authors Rajiv Malhotra and Aravindan Neelakandhan has detailed the dangers faced by Bharat:

1.Islamic Fundamentalism/Terrorism
2.Maoism
3.Dravidian-Christian nexus
   
An animated debate is going on in  both  the Hindu diaspora and readers in India concerning the above problems. The book itself deals with the third problem. Authors Malhotra and Neelakandhan also continue to provide  information regarding the asuric characters, both Indian and Western that are actively seeking to subvert Hinduism. These  asuric forces stop at nothing and  in addition to exaggerations, actually invent alleged crimes committed by Hindus against the Christian population in India. The mayhem that these asuric characters create cannot be underestimated. While they do not and cannot replicates the horrors of the Goa Inquisition or the colonial era onslaught of the Christian missionaries they are to be watched and vigorously contested at all international fora where they congregate.

There can be no two opinions on the subject. There cannot be any complacency.

However, while not  wishing to be complacent in such a context, the present writer  is convinced that a parallel consideration of why India will continue to be Hindu may not be out of place. India will continue to be Hindu. This is not only because of  heroic defensive battles fought in the past by various ruling princes and the everyday Hindu against the invaders but because the religion itself is superior in its central ethos over both Christianity and Islam. This was true then and is true now.

Why is this so ? The two proselytizing faiths are self defeating. There is only this much that force, fraud and money can do. Once the economic considerations are over many of the poor and underprivileged return to the ancestral fold because the ancestral memory is very strong among Hindus.  This cuts across the board, across all classes and segments of the Hindu population, where they have not been corrupted by greed and mendacity.

Hinduism’s built in advantage is two fold . It is inclusive. Since time immemorial our saints and sages have proclaimed that the paths to spiritual and religious enlightenment are diverse and varied. This is why Mahatma Gandhi could say that the Sermon on the Mount went straight to his heart and yet continue to be a Hindu to the end of his life.

And indeed who can quarrel with the figure of Jesus of Nazareth ? But Christianity in its historical development was the opposite of what Jesus preached. Violence and conquest are built into its ethos. The quest for domination is ever present. And whatever limited good some of the practitioners of the religion achieve is nullified by its compulsive need to proselytize. The recognition that Hinduism in its great religious documents preaches essentially what Jesus wanted (but did not achieve) has not seriously entered the minds of the unfortunate missionaries.

Their proselytizing zeal also serves the political  interests of the colonial and post colonial powers. The Bible and the gun have always gone hand in hand.

The second advantage that Hinduism has is its deep connection with Prithvi, Bhumi(Earth). While this can be generalized to the entire planet it is best seen in the
concept of sacred earth and the sacralisation of various centres of worship from Kashmir and Kailas in the north to Kanya Kumari in the south, and east and west across the entire subcontinent. No country has so many sacred centres in one and the same geo-political area.

This latter dimension is particularly present in the consciousness of the Scheduled Castes and Tribals. Missionaries have tried to convince them that they are separate from the so called ‘orthodox’ Hindu tradition. This tradition that the missionaries have conjured up in their vivid imaginations is in reality part and parcel of the SCs and STs traditions also.

The basis of the tribal religions is the worship of Nature, which is ever present in the Vedas. The cosmic, atmospheric and terrestrial forces of Nature are worshipped on a grand scale in the Rig Veda. The tribals do the same, in a more localized and limited manner. The presence of deities is shared both by tribal religion and Hinduism. This is why many tribals who have been converted by the activities of missionaries have slowly but surely returned to their ancestral faith. Here, the Sangh Parivar’s efforts are bearing fruit precisely because of the deep linkages between tribal and Hindu worship(what missionaries call ‘paganism’).

With regard to the converted Schedule castes, here too the damage caused by  missionary interventions is colossal. The enmity they have sown between the converts and the Hindu SCs has been detrimental to the body politic. The recent attempt by Catholic bishops to get the converts included in the government’s affirmative programs is a gross injustice to the Hindu SCs for whom the Constitution had originally intended the programs . These Hindu SCs are , in fact, economically disadvantaged in comparison to the converts who benefit from the Church and foreign donations.

But here too, many of the converts are returning to the Hindu fold, after experiencing the discrimination by the upper echelons of the Church and the congregation. For them even after conversion, there are separate pews in church, and separate burial places in graveyards. They are looked down upon by the well to do converts  and those who like to think of themselves as upper caste converts. There is no intermarriage.

Many SCs are uncomfortable with the strait jacket of monotheism. In the end, therefore, they and as well the depraved and deracinated Hindus bribed by opportunism  will return to Hindu India. In Bharat, the 4Gs of Hinduism, as spelt out by journalist Vir Sanghvi, are the enduring heroes : Gayatri, Ganga, Gau and Gita. And this is only the beginning of a long list. Can such a religion be defeated ?

The missionaries will not like this.  Do we look as if we care ?

Vande Mataram !

whatever the missionaries say or do
What did the missionary thugs do to the original inhabitants of Canada ? The same that they did everywhere, loot, plunder, rape and convert defenceless people. Thereafter the entire history is whitewashed, lies fabricated to cover up mass murders, all to make people worship the dangling jew on the cross. Goa is a shining example of missionary violence and fraud. A pirate is being worshipped as a saint and the draconian evils perpetrated by him are being whitewashed by starting schools and colleges in the name of the pirate. Even a so called prestigious management institute is named after the pirate. People like J.George should hang their heads in shame that many converts go to Goa to worship the dead body of this pirate, which is kept in a Basilica. George don't sing the glory of Canada. Canada needs Hindus to balance the demonic twin forces of christianity and islam. 5

Whatever the Missionaries say or do
Canada is heavily underpopulated and they seek people from other countries to come and settle there. Inviting Muslims from Bangladesh, Pakistan and African countries is disastrous, the Islamists will multiply by uncontrolled reproduction, multiple marriages and aggressive conversion. Christian Canada will become Islamic Republic of Canada. The only alternative is to bring docile and humane people, devoid of any fundamentalism either in their minds, or bodies. Only HINDUS meet that criterion. George, do not talk of bunkum Christian charity or magnanimity. It is Hobson's choice - Christian bacteria or Islamic virus, both will doom Canada. Hinduism is the safest and best alternative, the Canadians know that better than our convert Georges, Thomases, and Johns. 5

It is founded on N.O.T.H.I.N.G.
It can't demonstrate A.N.Y.T.H.I.N.G.
And it rest on no P.R.I.N.C.I.P.L.E
Hindus,unite with one heart and one mind.Never believe in the hypocritical canting, lying and slandering of ASURIC FORCES. 5

Is there a christian country at all?
I take it J George, you are a keralite christian. Your point is that the christians are good people.reason? Canada is a christian country and is accepting the hindus from all over the world, as refugees. So christians are good people and the dead jew who has taught these people all these good qualities should be the son of god? Is that what you are saying? If yes there are several problems and even more questions If no then you have not made your point accurately.
The west and specifically the Europe was in dark ages purely because of christianity.These christian brothers of yours used burn the widows at stake. Read about what exactly christianity did to science and thinkers.learn about spanish inquisition, french revolution etc.They bumped off any one who said and just believed that the earth goes round the sun! Today we don't even think about the stupidity that's peddled in the asinine book called bible( an book good as an ars wipe). I guess you have never opened the bible and read. Reason? Your statement canada is a christian country is at best laughable claim and at worst an insult to canadians. No canadian believes that the earth is a flat disc like thing and that you can build a tall building that will be visible from all corners of the world! Ah another biblical stupidity.Corners of the world? Does earth have a corner? How asinine. Bible is full of crap things like thatThere is nothing useful in that ars wipe. So get of that high horse and start thinking rationally. Are there good people? Yes in all religions and are there bad people in all religions? You bet. What differentiates these is that some people become bad when they follow religion to the dot.The two desert religions have shown time and again how cruel,asinine,violent,oppressive and regressive they can be. Is it not time to defang both institutionalised islam and christianity. You bet 5

To Shri George
You have missed the point of my article. No doubt there are individual Christians and groups who are following in the footsteps of Jesus of Nazareth.

However, Christianity as an institutionalised religion is a proselytising religion. It is this which historically has caused problems.

The West now acknowledges this as a fact : war and violence accompanied their excursions into non Christian countries. This was true of the Americas and especially of India. Colonial rule was imposed on a highly civilised country. Its culture, educational institutions etc were destroyed with a clear intent, in the case of colonialism, the aim was economic exploitation. In the case of the religion it was conversion.

Please re read my article and you will understand what the Hindu concern is. 5

Thanks to the Generosity of Christian Canada
Dear Mr.Vijaya Rajiva,
As you know Canada is still welcomming hindu refugees from Srilanka along with other hindus from India. And both hindu refugees from Srilanka and Indian hindus are enjoying the same freedom of speach and other benefits equally like the Christian Canadians. If you were in Srilanka, will you be able to sleep peacefully with your family. So be thankful to the Christian outlook and generosity 5

Whatever the missionaries say or do
Sir,
With all my respects to the authors,I emphasise that Hindus are fast losing out in numbers.If one takes an undivided India,that is including Pakistan and Bangladesh,Hindus form just 60% of the total population,with 40% having gone out of it's fold.
Post independence,Christian majority states like Nagaland,Mizoram,Meghalaya have come up.Now the missionaries are concentrating on Orissa,and the murder of Swami Lakshmananda in Kandhmal is just an example that Hindu social workers will not be allowed to serve tribal Hindus.Missionaries treat the tribals and the Dalits as their own flock.It is a blessing in disguise that Dalits are converting to Buddhism,thus avoiding becoming Christians.
The worst thing that is happening is that Christian run schools are coming up even in villages,where children have to speak in English,getting delinked from their own mother tongue the very vehicle of Hindu Dharma and culture
The media is dominated by Christianised Hindus like Barkha Dutts and innumerable others.Leading
Infact English channels like NDTV did not even report the murder of Swami Lakshmananda,while for days they covered the murder of missionary Graham Staines.
It is the introduction of English language at primary school level which will destroy Hindu culture and religion.
Hindus lack basic pragmatism,not to understand that making a staunch Catholic ,Sonia as the country's supreme leader they are destroying themselves. 5
