Obama’s ignorance of Indian History!!

published on February 7, 2015

It is well known that Americans have a ‘poor worldview’. For them, there is ONLY the American continent and the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans on either side AND THEREAFTER LIES A DARK VOID BEYOND !!

The ‘lameduck’ American President Obama has just AUTHENTICATED the ‘American Worldview’, by his maudlin statement about religious intolerance in India !!

He lauds Mahatma Gandhi for India’s Independence. By this he exhibits his IGNORANCE OF INDIAN HISTORY.

The world renowned Indian historian , Dr. R.C. Majumdar,(unlike Shourie’s EMINENT HISTORIANS), had in his magnum opus trilogy : ” History of the Freedom Movement in India”- Vol 3, had written that when B.P. Chakravarti was acting as Governor of West Bengal, Lord Attlee visited India and stayed as his guest for three days at the Raj Bhavan. Chakravarti asked Attlee about the real grounds for granting independence to India.

Specifically, his question was, when the Quit India movement lay in ruins years before 1947 where was the need for the British to leave in such a hurry. Attlee’s response is most illuminating and important for history.

Here is the Governor’s account of what Attlee told him:

” In reply Attlee cited several reasons, the most important were the activities of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose which weakened the very foundation of the attachment of the Indian land and naval forces to the British Government. Towards the end, I asked Lord Attlee about the extent to which the British decision to quit India was influenced by Gandhi’s activities. On hearing this question Attlee’s lips widened in a smile of disdain and he uttered, slowly, putting emphasis on each single letter – “mi-ni-mal.”

Thus from Clement Attlee, we are educated of the fact that it was ONLY FOUR ENTITIES that were responsible for India’s Independence :

(a) – Netaji Subhas Bose
(b) – His INA
(C) – The then British Indian Army
(d) – The then Royal Indian Navy


Having read R.C. Majumdar’s trilogy, I have no hesitation in indicting Mahatma Gandhi for the ‘GENOCIDE’ of the Malabar Hindus by the ‘peace loving’ Moplahs of the ‘Religion of Peace’.

And, Gandhi’s ‘religious tolerance’, in the words of Dr. B.R. Ambedkar :

“  Gandhi has never called the Muslims to account even when they have been guilty of gross crimes against Hindus. It is a notorious fact that many prominent Hindus who had offended the religious susceptibilities of the Muslims either by their writings or by their part in the Shudhi Movement have been murdered by some fanatic Musalmans. The leading Muslims never condemned these criminals. On the contrary, they were hailed as religious martyrs…. This attitude of the Muslims is understandable. What is not understandable is the attitude of Mr. Gandhi.”

And, here is a glowing tribute from Annie Besant to the Mahatma’s religious tolerance :

‘It would be well if Mr. M K Gandhi could be taken into Malabar to see with his own eyes the ghastly horrors which have been created by the preaching of himself and his ‘loved brothers’ Muhommad and Shaukat Ali. The Khilafat Raj is established there; on 1 August, 1921, sharp to the date first announced by Gandhi for the beginning of Swaraj and the vanishing of British Rule, a Police Inspector was surrounded by Moplahs, revolting against that Rule. From that date onwards thousands of the forbidden war knives were secretly made and hidden away and on 20 August, the rebellion broke out. Khilafat flags were hoisted on Police Stations and Government Offices. …. Eyes full of appeal, and agonized despair, of hopeless entreaty of helpless anguish, thousands of them camp after camp which I visited. Mr. Gandhi says ‘Shameful Inhumanity’. Shameful inhumanity indeed, wrought by the Moplahs, and these are the victims saved from extermination by British and Indian Swords. For be it remembered the Moplahs began the whole horrible business; the Government intervened to save their victims and these thousands have been saved. Mr. Gandhi would have hostilities suspended so that the Moplahs may swoop down on the refugee camps and finish their work! “

And, on the aspect of religious tolerance in India, here is what a Jesuit Father had to state.  In the book – ” India : Its Life and Thought “, The Macmillan Co., New York, one finds on page 166 :

” By the sword and cruel Inquisition not only were Syrian Christians compelled to transfer their allegiance to the Pope; non-Christians also were, for perhaps the second time in the long history of the land subjected to the bitter restraints and inhuman inflictions of religious persecutions. IT IS A CURIOUS FACT THAT THE HIDEOUS AND BLOODY MONSTER OF RELIGIOUS INTOLERANCE WAS HARDLY KNOWN IN INDIA UNTIL, FIRST THE FOLLOWERS OF MOHAMMED AND,  SECONDLY, THE DISCIPLES OF THE MEEK AND LOWLY JESUS BEGAN TO INVADE THE LAND. “

Obama, I believe is IGNORANT OF THIS HISTORY !!

Any wonder then the ‘Ugly American’ has blundered in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya , Vietnam etc etc

But in India, the anti- national ‘SICK-U-LAR’ English Media will take PRIDE in DISOWNING OUR CIVILIZATIONAL & CULTURAL ETHOS. They are truely – ‘THE WHITE MAN’S BURDEN’.

And, they will pontificate that Hindus must be tolerant !!

The fact of the matter is the FACT, that half-a-century of Congress rule over this benighted Nation, has INFLICTED ON THIS ANCIENT VEDIC CIVILIZATION, the TYRANNY OF MINORITISM. PERIOD.

Shame on you – SICK-U-LAR – ENGLISH MEDIA- the MacaulayPutras/Putris.
