Protecting Hindu Dharma

As soon as the Hindu population of Bharat goes down to the 70% magic number, political power along with everything else would shift to an openly anti-Hindu Dharma behavior. It has already started. At the current rate, it would take somewhere around 20 more years to reach the 70% threshold. After that, practicing Hindu Dharma, and other Dharmic panths like Buddhism, Jainism and Sikhism would be difficult; which could lead to a civil war in Bharat.

A large chunk of Hindu geographical land has shrunk from Hindu-Dharma’s way of life in the past 1,000 years. Hindu lands in Bharat are shrinking drastically. Thousands of temples have been destroyed. In spite of being the majority, Hindus were ruled (slaved) by others for almost 800 years. Even today, 400,000 Hindus are still living outside of their homes in shelters for 27 years in their own country!

Now, the world is changing exponentially in the past 25 years and there are millions of radical people ready to die in order to spread their ideology. There are millions of people who do not like the way we worship and the way we live our lives. They want the world to live their lifestyle. Moreover, there are enough greedy politicians and traitors, who would never hesitate to destroy Bharat or Hindu Dharma in order to slake their political thirt.

We do not have much time; however, we do have enough time to avoid this confrontation and to preserve our way of life, religious practices, and culture for the next generations. We have only a few years to avoid this confrontation legally, ideologically, and mentally with the help of social media and diplomacy.

The best weapon is to change some of the ideologies which are spreading hatred and violence. Unfortunately, it’s not in our control and we probably do not have enough time. Here are the alternative options:

  • Bringing uniform civil code in Bharat: It is difficult and it would become more and more difficult as time goes by. It would become impossible after a certain time. Current 79% Hindu population is sufficient enough to make these types of constitutional amendments. It is “now or never” situation.
  • Enforce one wife policy.
  • Enforce one or two kid policy by taking away benefits/social programs for violators. Or, something like this. It is not my intention to go to that level of precision at this point!
  • Abolish Article-370 from state of Jammu & Kashmir
  • Help 400,000 Kashmiri Pandits/Hindus to resettle in their own homes
  • Stop illegal immigration of Bangladeshis
  • Remove anti-Hindu political position holders at all level of govt.
  • Redraft school text books where Hindu Dharma is portrayed in a demonizing way.
  • Tight control on what is being taught in the Madrassas and other theological schools.
  • Fight against injustice
  • Confront cinema industry, people, media, TVs, channels, bloggers, artists, politicians, textbooks, schools, advertisements, and social media who are demonizing Hindu Dharma.
  • Spreading short, simple, clear and effective messages about Hindu Dharma and Bharat through social media, movies etc.
  • Expose ideologies which are full of hatred and extremism.
  • We must strive to bring into the fold rest of the Hindu Dharma population of Bharat who are still ignorant of the looming threats and are living under the influence of Bollywood and materialist anesthesia!

Some of the steps are against the current (mis)notion of secularism. Well, when the generosity of secularism and democratic values are already being abused and when secularism itself is at risk, these deviations should be pardoned to maintain secularism and to maintain a peaceful society.

We have a good number of passionate, devoted and energetic people who think in this direction all over the world. We have enough intellectual people, organizations, and temples, working tirelessly for Hindu Dharma! What we need is to channelize this energy in a different direction for a while. Even 10% of the wealth of temples (provided the secular state stops plundering this temple wealth) and a small percent of the energy of other organizations are good enough to save/protect Hindu Dharma! 10% is an arbitrary number, not scientific. The point is we have everything in enough quantity in order to bring these changes. From the investment perspective, 10% would help securing 90% wealth. Not bad at all!

Each temple or association (or group of them) can take up one of the above issues as their core agenda; drive it with passion, others should support and help. Looking at the tremendous potentials of our temples and other organizations, these tasks are doable. If we can work in this direction, I am sure nobody would succeed in distorting Hindu Dharma and we could sustain our culture for our next generations to come.

If we want to keep our religion/culture, we will have to think outside the box! Protecting “Dharma” is more important than any other religious activities. Those who do not wake-up and do not react to the need of time, eventually they disappear! Those who fail to learn from history tend to repeat it and suffer! Writing critique and suggestions are much easier than actually implementing the solutions. At the same time, root of all reforms lie in a simple thought!

This is daunting and appalling, but realistic in every sense. The good news is that it is not too late (yet!) and there are realistic solutions too!

Along with your support, I am resolved to taking on the textbook issue (#8) in Bharat. Are you ready? Let’s see, who (individual, temple, or organization) is willing to take-on other issues.

If you like to do something, share this message as much as possible so that, it reaches to all temples, trustees, organizations, politicians, and all Hindus, Buddhist, Jains, and Sikhs.

    Shameful article. Literally calling a Hindu jihaad. Your site should be reported for misrepresenting my religion under the garb of victimization

    • Vikram

      What are you smoking? Where does the article call for ‘jihad’ of any kind?

      • C Siddarth

        Not explicitly. But just look at the over radical measures suggested. At a perceived threat. Follow this and we have a dystopian future

        • Vikram

          Name the ‘over radical’ measures

          • C Siddarth

            The bullet points. If they do not sound radical to you, then there is a problem. The author is trying to kill the very concept of democracy and free world through his bigotry and xenophobic tendencies

          • Vikram

            Lets analyze one by one rather than get into rhetoric

            1.)
            Bringing uniform civil code in Bharat: It is difficult and it would become more and more difficult as time goes by. It would become impossible after a certain time. Current 79% Hindu population is sufficient enough to make these types of constitutional amendments. It is “now or never” situation.
            Enforce one wife policy.

            Both of these points are related to UCC – can anyone rationally oppose UCC?

            2.) Enforce one or two kid policy by taking away benefits/social programs for violators. Or, something like this. It is not my intention to go to that level of precision at this point!

            Population control is rational – earth has limited resources…and this is not an ask for a BAN or ARREST, but trying to induce behavioral change

            3.) Abolish Article-370 from state of Jammu & Kashmir
            Help 400,000 Kashmiri Pandits/Hindus to resettle in their own homes
            Stop illegal immigration of Bangladeshis

            What is bigoted about these demands? Article 370 and KP expulsion are the real murders of democracy. And d you have doubts that illegal immigration of Bangladeshis is a genuine problem?

            4.) Tight control on what is being taught in the Madrassas and other theological schools

            This is a must-do to fight Wahhabbi/Islamist terror…and something which every Western ‘civilized’ nation is doing right now. Do you have objections to this?

            All the other suggestions are routinely cited by any Hindu with basic awareness of situation on the ground. so what really is your objection? And don’t throw more rhetoric please

          • vijay kumar

            Give Bangladeshis and rohingyas pan card and passport and ration card within a week of arrival. It’s good for the country that Bangladesh and India don’t have a border and people can freely cross to India and settle down.

          • C Siddarth

            I don’t disagree with these points at all. These are rational. Any Hindu would agree with these. However,

            Remove anti-Hindu political position holders at all level of govt.
            Redraft school text books where Hindu Dharma is portrayed in a demonizing way.
            Confront cinema industry, people, media, TVs, channels, bloggers, artists, politicians, textbooks, schools, advertisements, and social media who are demonizing Hindu Dharma.

            This is getting towards fascism. Controlling every institution to set the discourse. Just like what countries in the middle east and turkey seem to be doing now.

    • Nishant Avasthi

      What is your religion BTW ?

      • vijay kumar

        A VHP leader have explained on a pamphlet on love jihad that the circumcised member gives Hindoo girls ‘a lot of anand(pleasure)’ and that is why they elope ! The fascists are terribly insecure and go crazy when faced with the reality of hindu girls having fondness for circumcised rough boys.

    Excellent ideas. I think the most important thing is to change the way the temples work,All temples should be linked together heading by a think tank. Message from the temples should be same. Priests should talk about problems Hindus face to-day and how to tackle them,There should be week-end sessions where children are taught about our religion in a positive way, so that children feel proud of their religion.. There should be institutes to train priests and learn Sanskrit.There should be regular donations from Hindus, so that priests get a proper salary, healthcare and pension.
    Charities who work for Hindus should be known to Hindus.
