Even while conditions in India are getting much better with each passing year, the nation and its culture continue to face several obstacles and dangers. Following are only a few of the most prominent issues that India must address if it is to maintain its economic and political stability as well as its future prosperity, spiritual legacy, and reputation in the international community. Of fact, there are many more problems than the ones listed here, but these, in my opinion, are some of the most significant.
We continue to observe that various incidents that occurred that were utterly violent and cruel against the people of India, especially those who adhered to the Vedic traditions, have been maligned, changed, or even erased in the history books of India, not only within the country but also in other countries like the West. India had some of the deadliest holocausts in recorded history, yet the country is now all but forgotten. In areas like Kashmir, where approximately 400,000 Kashmiri intellectuals have to evacuate their homeland of 5000 years to become refugees in their own country of India, it is clear that ethnic cleansing is still taking place. We also witness the persecution of Hindus in Bangladesh and Pakistan, which the Western media has chosen to ignore.
The Indian government hasn’t done much to defend its own citizens or to maintain the truth about its country’s turbulent past. While in India it almost seems as though they would prefer the world to remain unaware of what has truly been done against Hindu society, the Jews, on the other hand, have made it an honour to ensure that the world never forgets what has happened to them.
Remembering the true history of India is not about exacting revenge or stirring up old animosities; rather, it is about ensuring that we do not make the same mistakes again and paying tribute to the freedom fighters who sacrificed their lives and worked tirelessly for India’s future and our right to continue following and engaging in the Vedic tradition.
Hindus nowadays have a problem because they are not what they should be.
They lack the necessary unity and do not support the Dharma and their culture with appropriate vigour. India, which formerly served as the hub of Vedic culture and society, has already been separated and fragmented. Like Kashmir, the pundits no longer enjoy the status of respected citizens in their own country.
Unanimity has long been one of India’s biggest weaknesses. The lack of cooperation amongst the groups and sects of the Vedic/Hindu masters and spiritual leaders is still evident. There are several Swamis, Vedic gurus, and yoga instructors who have great influence over vast populations of people. However, they rarely engage with other organisations and are largely confined to their own group under the direction of their primary teacher or master.
The country lacks the sense of oneness that may save the Vedic culture of India. All spiritual leaders must establish a level of collaboration where they may collaborate with their throngs of followers.
VEDIC/HINDU SOCIETY IS DYING
There are many who would assert that Vedic civilization and the Vedic tradition are both eternal. Since it was founded on a spiritual vibration, which is why it is known as Sanatana-dharma, it may really endure eternally. However, we have already witnessed how Bharata Varsha, an area that was once rather extensive, has lost parts of Afghanistan, Pakistan, Bangladesh, and other parts of greater India.
We must acknowledge that Lord Krishna gave Arjuna the order to fight for Dharma; otherwise, much of the kingdom and the moral values that kept the region alive would have been gone need to consider what would have happened if Arjuna had lost the battle and adharma had triumphed over Dharma. The Vedic spiritual tradition would have been much diminished, and the entire region of India would have been entirely different.
That is what the war was fought to protect. Because of this, Arjuna was told by Lord Krishna to fulfil his responsibilities as a Kshatriya. So how can we assume that things will go on as they are today if we do nothing?
How can we stand by and watch while other cultures and religions invade India with the intention of gaining strength and notoriety while attempting to undermine Vedic Dharma? No, if we do not stand up for Dharma, things will slowly deteriorate and disappear.
The other religions will operate as the seeds of conflict, discord, and war, as we can now see them doing, in the absence of the timeless spiritual truths that we discover in Sanatana-dharma. We must clearly understand that true spirituality unites humanity, whereas conventional religion, with its focus on ethnicity and narrow dogmatic beliefs, divides it. We must act more honourably and responsibly than that.
INCORRECT WORLD PRESS
The uneven international news coverage of events in India is a further issue. The media is constantly prepared to report on minorities who appear to be being persecuted, such as Christians and Muslims, but when it comes to the ongoing and enormous crimes committed against Hindus, the media is essentially silent. India has a better track record when it comes to upholding human rights than the majority of nations, particularly Arab and Islamic nations, but whenever something goes wrong, the entire world gathers to learn about it and condemn it. However, the riots in Gujarat in 2002 went too far and should never have started or continued to the extent that they did. It was excessive, but it served as a warning to Muslims to proceed with caution and not assume that Hindus will never protest the crimes done against them, which is often the case.
The elite of India may claim that anyone who defends their culture or country is part of the Hindutva mindset or is trying to saffronize the country, but this is only possible because they can remain hidden behind the privileges they still enjoy. This is due to the fact that they have fallen prey to false propaganda spread by the media or other elitists.
Such rights and opportunities to criticize their own countrymen for the sacrifices they have made to maintain the Vedic culture will likewise become progressively restricted and lost if the nation is let to decline in her development and is further divided and cut away to be possessed by others.
