Dr Krishan Bhatnagar passed away ; A Staunch advocate of Hinduism is no more

published on April 25, 2013

 Dr. Krishan Bhatnagar, a Hindu stalwart of the highest order who spearheaded scores of campaigns against the anti-Hindu policies unleashed by the State and Federal governments of India, passed away yesterday morning at 5.30 A.M (April 22, 2013). at his son’s residence in USA. He was 86.  According to the family sources the end was absolutely peaceful when he was surrounded by his family members. For the past few months Krishan Ji had not been keeping good health and the family was taking care of him.
 
          Through and through Krishan Ji was a private person, a strong Hindu, intellectual, philosopher, philanthropist, activist and a planner. He was a keen researcher and writer. He put all these attributes to use for serving the community and advancing the causes of the Hindu Samaj.
 
          I have had the distinct pleasure of working with Krishan Ji for nearly two decades. During the past five years our focus was against the robbery being committed in broad day light by the Indian establishments in the Hindu temples of India. Like the Moguls and other enemy invaders of India the Indian establishments while claiming to nurture the freedom of religion took control of the major temples of India, their landed estate and financial assets including the offerings of devotees. The loot from the temples continues to be used as Govt. revenue. This means that the Hindu Gods and Goddesses have been relegated to work horses of the Indian establishment. A significant part of this loot is being used to fund official projects including those meant to promote foreign born predatory religions in India. The intent of this communal policy is to weaken the Hindu society and its religious infrastructure. As a friend, colleague and partner he was an important part of our organization and its support system. He will be sorely missed.
 
          The Bhatnagar family has requested all friends, well wishers and colleagues of Krishan Ji, who may want to send memorial gifts, to make donations to the charities of their choice in his name instead of sending flowers, cards or other memorial gifts.

    Great Hindu Mahathma
    Sri Krishan Bhatnagar ji is just one of his kind. He was a Veer Shivaji living off in the US, his achievements are monumental. He was never at peace looking at the loot and plunder of Hindu Mandirs, their Properties and defiling of Ancient Hindu traditions. He was a warrior and one with endless luck. Never did he fail to finish the tasks put before him. His conviction and intensity made many a anti Hindu politician run for cover, whenever the adharma was highlighted. A man who would go all the way to collect the facts on the ground on the loot and plunder of Hindu assets and minority appeasement, his appeals were never contested on their truthfulness. He was equal to aleast 1000 well educated Hindu thinkers and will never be equalled by any other activist. I had that rare privelege of being close to his heart and working over the last decade. Bhagawan’s grace was such that whatever task we worked on was a success beyond our imagination and adharma stopped on it’s tracks and victories recorded. At such advanced age and frail health, his clarity of thinking was amazing and never cynical or dogmatic. He surely, is a role model for all Hindu intellectuals for times to come. Instead of endlessly talking negatives, cribbing and playing victims, we must take on adharma on the strength of facts and Hindu human rights to establish our own Dharma in our own Matrubhumi. He was the first to send monetary help whenever necessary to Hindu activists and institutions. Dear Krishan ji, farewell, those of us who worked with you will carry on your unfinished work. Jai Shri Ram.

    Dr.Krishen Bhatnagar
    Dr.Krishen Bhatnagar’s demise is indeed a great loss to Hindus. His personality shone through his writings,which showed him to be wise,kind,highly intelligent,very composed and yet keen on ridding our temples from the arbitrary control of the Govt.If I remember right,I think he also wrote against the discrimination meted out to the Hindus by the Indian Govt.My humble homage to that great champion of the Hindu cause!
