Biased World Media
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.
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.
Then they might think that trying to preserve their traditions wasn’t such a horrible idea after all. However, if they wait too long, it might already be too late and they will either lose the amenities they formerly had or be compelled to significantly alter their way of life to suit foreign demands. We can’t afford to become indifferent.
TERRORISM AND THE LOSS OF HINDUS AROUND INDIA
We might assume that the Hindu people and society in India will always be robust or at the very least endure. Some individuals might believe that Vedic culture and those who adhere to it would never completely disappear. They might believe that Sanatana-dharma will always exist because it is an enduring culture connected to the spiritual identity of the living thing. But if we look around, it is clear that the number of Hindus among India’s neighbours, nations that were formerly a part of India, Bharatha Varsha, has significantly decreased. What stops it from happening in India if it can happen there?
In their 2006 research, Hindus in South Asia and the Diaspora: A Survey of Human Rights, the Hindu American Foundation acquired data that we will examine in this section.
For instance, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Bangladesh were all a part of the Vedic civilisation as early as 3000 BCE, some 1000 years ago. However, since ethnic cleansing took place in certain areas, the Hindu population there has all but disappeared. Numerous Vedic temples have been demolished by the Taliban in Afghanistan; these temples have either not been repaired or have been taken by Muslim parties. Numerous Hindus have also been expelled from Afghanistan, and even if they wanted to, there are no facilities that would allow them to do so.
Hindus have naturally inhabited in the region for thousands of years, although they currently make up only 1% of the country’s population.
In 1947, Bangladesh got separated from India. At that time, Hindus made about 30% of Bangladesh’s population. Then, by 1991, 5 million Hindus had been forcibly converted to Islam, and 20 million were reported as “lost.” According to reports from 2007, only 5% or less people identify as Hindu. Muslims in Bangladesh are still persecuting and committing acts of ethnic cleansing against Hindus, including murder, rape, kidnapping, the destruction of temples, and terrorist intimidation of families, women, and girls.
Over 45% of the lands taken from Hindus between 2001 and 2006 were used to the benefit of Muslims who are members of the Islamic Bangladesh National Party, in accordance with the Enemy Property Act and the Vested Property Act of 1974, both of which label Hindus as enemies of the state. Therefore, it appears that the ongoing terrorist attacks against Hindus in Bangladesh will continue until the majority, if not all, are eventually driven out of the nation.
Jammu and Kashmir were ruled by Hindu monarchs till 1339, and they have been a part of Vedic civilization for thousands of years. Due to the decision made by its monarch in 1947, when he requested India’s protection from Pakistan, which had occupied Kashmir, it is still a part of India. Since the middle to end of the 1980s, Kashmir has been the target of Islamic terrorists from Pakistan and Afghanistan, who have also carried out widespread ethnic cleansing campaigns against Hindus in India’s Kashmir Valley, largely with the support of Pakistan. According to census data, ethnic cleansing, murders, and the deadliest forms of terrorism have reduced the Hindu population by 400,000 since 1991, dropping it from 60% to under 40%. As a result, between 350,000 and 400,000 Hindus were forced to leave Kashmir and now must live as refugees in India, where they are taken care of in makeshift camps in Jammu and other locations. Many Hindus in Kashmir have experienced terrible killings, rapes, or other forms of intimidation that have forced them to flee for their lives. As a result, they were forced to flee and abandon all of their possessions, which the Muslims then took.
Bharata Varsha was formerly governed by a Vedic Kshatriya kingdom.
The direction of the government was based on Vedic ideals. We now observe a large number of politicians who are swayed towards corruption, who adhere to less-than-Vedic values, who are frequently elected through shady politics and absurd promises they never keep, and who have little understanding of how to act in their official capacities. There is a ton of tales about how these politicians abuse their power for whatever reason looks good for them or a coworker, or for nefarious intentions.
The British were experts at centralizing everything to establish top-down rule over India. After all, that was their goal—to take over and loot the nation and extract all of its resources. Because they were there from the beginning with corrupt intentions, the corruption was not hidden. They did not care who said anything about it because it was apparent. They had everyone beneath them. However, Nehru adopted the British bureaucracy’s organizational structure, which was a mistake.
As a result, you now have a politician who only makes a few thousand rupees per month but wields huge power over decisions. As a result, he is in a position to use this power to leverage himself into making large sums of money by brokering deals with others who need his approval for their goals. Starting from the top, this descends. Therefore, if politicians wish to make much more than a few thousand rupees a month, they have little incentive to be truthful. And even the smallest civil servants have this inclination. They develop a lack of empathy, callousness, and concern for the wellbeing of the broader populace in favour of considering what they can gain from their current position.
