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

AND YET THE MYTH PERSISTS ABOUT THE MAHATMA GETTING INDIA
INDEPENDENCE !!

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.

    We have to educate Obama about hinduism
    We have better not criticize Obama. Pl try to remember what happened when Obama visited India.Till he met the opposition party members he had no complaint about India. After meeting Congress president and opposition party leaders, he made unnecessary comments about India on the last day of his stay.Previously USA denied visa to MODI. it was done mainly because of the pressure exerted upon USA by some anti MODI people of Indian origin in USA. We know well who, in India, is patronising them. I sincerely believe that some opposition leaders might have presented before him a wrong picture of the religious tolerance in India during the conversation with him in order to defame MODI. MODI because of his charisma, commands respect from OBAMA. But the poison injected in his mind by some vested interests and media in India force him to make such comments. Only in one way this negative effect in his mind can be nullified. ie by presenting him details about how Indian kings allowed missionaries to preach and practice their religion even from first century itself. For this goodness what Hindus got back in return? ie Conversion from Hinduism to other religion. It is a fact that only one sided conversion is allowed in India and if the other side converts back them then there is a lot of hue and cry against it by pseudo seculars. Obama and the world hear only that cry. So naturally they will feel that Hindus are very bad people. We should propagate about what happened to Hindus in Pakistan and Bengladesh. In Pakistan it has come down to 1% from the 22% in 1952. But on the other hand the percentage of minority is increasing in India. If we present this before the world they can not find fault with us.

    Christian money power with the white masters winning
    The Padres have won the propaganda war with their money power. In US the President, press, church & business speak in one voice to support their agenda unlike in India who cannot or wont think for India’s interest.
    Sardar K M Panikkar thus writes on the heinous iconoclasm the Portuguese unleashed in South India:

    In 1543 Goa was made a Bishopric with authority extending over the entire Far East. Special instructions were issued to the Portuguese Viceroy to root out the infidels. Hindu temples in Goa were destroyed and their property distributed to religious orders (like the Franciscans) in 1540. (Asia and Western Dominance, Somayya Publications, Mumbai, 1999, p. 280) Panikkar refers to the heinous writ of King Joao III which ran ruthless on the disunited and helpless Hindus. Joao wrote to his officials in India: “The great concernment which lies upon Christian princes to look to matters of Faith and to employ their forces for its preservation makes me advise you how sensible I am that not only in many parts of India under our subjection but in our city of Goa, idols are worshipped, places in which our Faith may be more reasonably expected to flourish; and being well informed with how much liberty they celebrated heathenish festivals WE command you to discover by diligent officers all the idols and to demolish and break them up in pieces where they are found, proclaiming severe punishments against anyone who shall dare to work, cast, make in sculpture, engrave, paint or bring to light any figure of an idol in metal, brass, wood, plaster or any other matter, or bring them from other places; and against who publicly or privately celebrated any of their sports, keep by them any heathenish frankincense or assist and hide the Brahmins, the sworn enemies of the Christian profession.It is our pleasure that you punish them with the severity of the Law without admitting any appeal or dispensation in the least”. This idol breaking spree of the Christian missionaries.

    Christian conversion business exposed -Part II
    This being historical truths none can deny the gravity of Christian, and Muslim conversions as it happened in Sultans’, Mughals’ or Tipu’s times. But the controversy the proselytizing forces now rake up is so much as to outfit a magician’s wand with the aggressor masquerading as the aggrieved. It is not too long ago that the Chennai Archbishop lambasted the anti-conversion legislation of the former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Miss Jayalalita which the former said would be retaliated with the church stopping charitable services. That the Christian missionaries would stop care the destitute in their orphanages or give education (that too, a full-blooded western education that runs in contrast to India’s national ethos!) to the backward classes was what the Archbishop’s thoughtless but venomous outpouring meant. They would serve the destitute and educate the backward people only if they get these helpless ones into Christianity and are allowed to further proselytizing!

    This bigotry in fact has been getting muscle and money support from the West, especially the US, avowed to convert India into its colonial stronghold. The US military as well known has four wings, army, navy, air force and the church, all pooling their effort to colonise other nations. The speech of Barbara Boxer, former Chairperson of US Senate Foreign Relations Committee on the need of sponsoring the cause of Greater Nagaland which if realised would be a US’ base of operation in an area all surrounded by non-Christian nations was glaring. Boxers revelation that American missionaries who were in the North-East Hill area since 1839 influenced the Greater Nagaland movement well exposed the proselytising-colonising collusion. (Times of India report 4. 10. 2003)

    This could well be set against the backdrop of the brutal killing of Lakshmananda by the Maoists, an incident which as a known Christian writer and politician wrote sourced off the Maoist wrath against the saint’s anti-conversion stand.
