“Akhilesh Yadav did not mean to send more Muslims to Kabristan, by increasing the number of graveyards….but the real reason is lack of unity among Hindus! Every Hindu must read this story”!
Do I call my country Hindustan or should I call it India because Hindustan offends the minority, Now this is the mindset our political masters have created for the last 70 years. Before we go in detail pertaining to this article let’s try to understand few numbers pertaining to where Hindu community stands and why is it important for us to worry about our existence in this nation. The Muslim community has registered a moderate 0.8 percent growth to touch 17.22 crore in the 10-year period between 2001 and 2011, up from 13.8 crore, while Hindu population showed a decline by 0.7 percent at 96.63 crore during the period, according to the latest census data on religion.
As per the religious census data of 2011, released by the Registrar General and Census Commissioner on Tuesday, the total population in the country in 2011 was 121.09 crore.
Hindu population is 96.63 crore (79.8 percent); Muslim 17.22 crore (14.2 percent); Christian 2.78 crore (2.3 percent); Sikh 2.08 crore (1.7 percent); Buddhist 0.84 crore (0.7 percent); Jain 0.45 crore (0.4 percent), Other religions and persuasions (ORP) 0.79 crore (0.7 percent) and religion not stated 0.29 crore (0.2 percent). These are pretty much a known figure but what is more alarming is the one mentioned below
The growth rate of population in the decade 2001-2011 was 17.7 percent. The growth rate of population of the different religious communities in the same period was as Hindus: 16.8 percent; Muslim: 24.6 percent; Christian: 15.5 percent; Sikh: 8.4 percent; Buddhist: 6.1 percent and Jain: 5.4 percent. The growth rate figures prove the India will very soon have Hindus as minorities.
Have you ever wondered irrespective of Hindus being 79.8 percent of India’s population why we were not successful in having a political party exclusively for Hindus something like All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen for Muslims. For example in UP, 20% Muslims get over 1500 crores for their burial grounds but 80% Hindus get 600 crores for their burial grounds.
Ever seen a country where the majority population lives in fear of the minority? You will eventually start experience the fear of being a Hindu in the Hindu rashtra and yes that not because the Muslim population is growing at a massive rate that’s because we Hindus are divided among caste. The Hindu community has been divided from time immemorial and we continue to further divide ourselves now based on the caste, community and political affiliation. Hindus identify themselves as a Brahmins, Kshatriyas, Vaishyas and Shudras which is further divided into sub castes. Though we all are Hindus we are not inclined towards our castes unlike other religion like Muslims where they are either a Shia or a Sunni and In Christianity either they are Catholics or they are Protestants.
The article is in context of Indian society where Muslims and Christians Proudly identity themselves based on their religion and any sub caste and that is because they understand the importance of standing together as one religion unlike Hindus who are divided based on castes and sub castes slowly isolating themselves from the concept of Hindu Rashtra where every Hindu is just a Hindu and the caste has nothing to do with this identity.
The practice of casteism among the Hindu community has only ruined us and in the process we have been slowly curbed unknowingly. We Hindus are divided based on the god we worship, the language we speak and the region we dwell. We are either a Rajasthani, A Marati, a Kannadiga, a Tamilian or a Bihari first which is not the case with other community. Hindu community is not controlled by any organization or authority unlike Mecca for Muslims and Roman Catholic Church for Christian who control the laws of their religion and also play a prominent role in binding the religion together. And this is exactly why 9 out of 10 political parties in India have been trying their best to please Muslims and Christians to vote for them but never seen a party who staunchly stand behind Hindus or fight for Hindu rights.
These political parties and the political masters know Hindu vote by caste while the Muslims and the Christians vote by religion. For a Hindu a fellow a Hindu contestant an election is perceived based on his caste or a sub caste, but that’s not the case with others. For a Muslim the candidate is a Muslim and nothing more than that and the same applies to Christian. A Hindu vote is always divided based on community, sub caste and party however the same doesn’t apply for other religion so the political party knows who they need to please to get maximum votes under their kitty.
Originally, the word Caste is totally out of context in Hinduism (Sanatana Dharma). The word to be used here is Varna, which means profession. This Varna was not determined by lineage but rather your aptitude and personality. This is still relevant in the modern day. The word Caste originates from a Portuguese/Spanish word Casta, which means lineage. The Varna concept was deliberately misconceived to be used as a divide and rule policy by European Invaders. Needless to say they were more than successful in their agenda. It is time we Hindus understand our history and how the glorious history of Hindu kings were brutally wiped out by the Mughals other invaders only because we Hindus didn’t unite to fight against them, we were then divided among ourselves in the name of Kingdom and every Hindu King was concerned only about his Kingdom which made it easy for the Mughals to wage war individually and kept on conquering and looting the kings one after the other.
It’s time we realize why political parties don’t really bother about Hindu sentiments, Its time we recognize why do we have rules for loud speakers at Ganesh festival while the mosques doesn’t have one, Its time we sink in the reality of how Kashmiri Pandits were chased out of their homes and made to live as refugee in their own nation, Its time we understand how political parties are disintegrating the Hindu community to a small caste based system to eventually isolate us forever, Its time we Hindus discard the caste system and unite together as a Hindu to ensure we live a dignified life and if we fail the do so the history would only repeat.
The history of how Mughals raped Hindu women’s and converted Hindu men to Islam a history of how Christian missionaries slowly infiltrated the Hindu society to make us believe that Hinduism was superstitious. This article is purely in context to Indian Society anyone who wants to give a justification of how Sunni and Shias fight or How Catholics and Protestants are divided are only trying to please their political masters and hiding under the blanket to secularism. It’s Important that we Hindus vote collectively towards a political party which would protect Hindu rights and ensure this nation remains a Hindu majority state and Hindus lives a life of respect.
