President Obama is wrong to equate Tolerant Hinduism with Intolerant, Violent Christianity and Islam- Part II

(NOTE: The aim of this paper is to point out that President Obama is wrong to equate Hinduism with Christianity and Islam. In Part 1, we have detailed the mission of Christianity, how it destroyed other civilizations, how millions of people were killed in Goa and how the missionaries are evangelizing the country in the name of service.

This is part II of the article narrating the mission of Islam and how Islam is brutalizing, torturing, terrorizing and working toward establishing Islam all around the world)

ISLAM

Will Durant said, “The Islamic conquest of India is probably the bloodiest story in history. It is a discouraging tale, for its evident moral is that civilization is a precious good, whose delicate complex of order and freedom, culture and peace, can at any moment be overthrown by barbarians invading from without or multiplying within.”

President Obama failed to identify the root of Terrorism

 
Not to identify the root of terrorism, beheadings, torture, deception, luring, allurement, tricking, tracking, targeting, etc., is an indication of an empty talk, sign of escapism, failing to call spade a spade, dismissing the real conflict between Islam and the humanity,  and hiding behind the ideologies of the two major Abrahamic religions. On February 18, President Obama delivered a major speech on combating violent extremism — while refusing to use the words “Muslim terrorists.” “No religion is responsible for terrorism — people are responsible for violence and terrorism.” President Obama continued by stating that “We are not at war with Islam. We are at war with people who have perverted Islam.” Two questions can be raised based on his statement.
  1. If religion is not responsible and only people are responsible, then why did he say that “India will succeed so long as it is not splintered along lines of religious faith, splintered along any lines and it is unified as one nation??”  If he believes that religion is not responsible for terrorism, then why did he not say that India will succeed as long as it is not splintered along lines of people who are responsible for violence and terror?”
  2. Second question is why would anybody resort to terrorism and violence? They must have read somewhere, and learned somewhere. Or they must have been taught somewhere. Since Muslims go to mosques and listen to the Mullahs about what is written in their HOLY QURAN, it is only logical to assume that whatever is written in Quran is the source of their belief that translated into action – violence, terror, torture, beheading and killing.
Roger Cohen in The Opinion Pages of The New York Times, detailing the atrocities of Islam in the West, observed, “The Islamists’ war is against freedom of expression, freedom of conscience, freedom of the press, freedom of blasphemy, sexual freedom — in short, core characteristics of democracies seen by the would-be rebuilders of the Caliphate as signs of Western debasement.” (Feb 16, 2015). Unfortunately, President is failing to translate his own statement to identify the religions that have crucified and terrorized the humanity. He said, “We see faith driving us to do right.  But we also see faith being twisted and distorted, used as a wedge — or worse, sometimes used as a weapon.” It is time to name the names and call the spade a spade. Both Abrahamic religions have drenched the humanity with blood with their conversion tactics and intolerance toward other reliigions. Hindu Genocide
 

The genocide suffered by the Hindus of India at the hands of Arab, Turkish, Mughal and Afghan rulers for a period of 800 years is not yet discussed, addressed and assessed. For fear of consequences, the whole Muslim history in India is not only formally unrecognized by the World, but Indian government for nearly seven decades has distorted the history of Islamic atrocities and put the matter under the rug so to speak. Dr. Keonraad Elst also writes in his book "Negation in India":

"The Muslim conquests, down to the 16th century, were for the Hindus a pure struggle of life and death. Entire cities were burnt down and the populations massacred, with hundreds of thousands killed in every campaign, and similar numbers deported as slaves. Every new invader made (often literally) his hills of Hindus skulls. Thus, the conquest of Afghanistan in the year 1000 was followed by the annihilation of the Hindu population; the region is still called the Hindu Kush, i.e. Hindu slaughter." Francois Gautier in his book 'Rewriting Indian History' (1996) wrote: "The massacres perpetuated by Muslims in India are unparalleled in history, bigger than the Holocaust of the Jews by the Nazis; or the massacre of the Armenians by the Turks; more extensive even than the slaughter of the South American native populations by the invading Spanish and Portuguese."

 

“Breaking India” is a groundbreaking work written by Rajiv Malhotra who spent seven years to gather information about the external forces that are planning to break up India.  Muslims have vowed to break up India through terror and infiltration into three countries – Mughalisthan, Dalitisthan and Dravidisthan. They are working relentlessly to complete what they call “unfinished business” of converting India into Islamic States. Muslims are inflicting untold misery, terror, and killings on Indian soil to go to paradise as promised in the Quran to enjoy waiting sensate objects. He also mentions that Christians and Maoists e equally waging a war to break up India.

It is worth remembering the agony of Robert D. Blackwill, the former US Ambassador to India from 2001 to 2003. Before he came to India, he kept a count of deaths that Muslims were causing in Kashmir. “India’s death toll from terrorism mounted as the snow fell and melted in Cambridge … Innocent human beings murdered as a systemic instrument of twisted political purpose. Terror against India that rose and fell with the seasons, year after year after year… All snuffed out by the killing hand of terror. 

 

On September 11 in America. Nearly every day in India….No respectable religion could excuse these merciless acts. No moral framework could sanction these abominations. No political cause could justify these murders of innocents. And yet, they go on.”

Anybody who is familiar with 1400 years of Islamic expansion, anybody who is willing to read about Islamic terrorism with open, objective, and academic mind or anybody willing to visit India and see the destruction of as many as 2000 Hindu Temples would realize the mission of Islam is to subjugate the entire human race and conquer the world. The Muslims deny their roots and their heritage because the fanatic Muslims consider India as “unfinished business” and Jihadists are busy terrorizing the populace in the name of Islam.

 

Quran and many Islamic leaders openly declared war on infidels. As Ayatollah Khomeini stated: “Those who know nothing of Islam pretend that Islam counsels against war. Those [who say this] are witless. Islam says: Kill all the unbelievers just as they would kill you all!     . . . Islam says: Kill in the service of Allah those who may want to kill you! . . . Islam says: Whatever good there is exists thanks to the sword and in the shadow of the sword! People cannot be made obedient except with the sword! . . . There are hundreds of other psalms [from the Koran] and Hadiths [sayings and acts of Muhammad] urging Muslims to value war and to fight. Does all that mean that Islam is a religion that prevents men from waging war? I spit upon those foolish souls who make such a claim.”

It means Islam says kill all the unbelievers such as Christians, Jews, Hinds, Buddhists, Jains, Parsees, Shinto and others. For centuries the Hindus were converted through coercion with the idea of spreading Islam and it continues to date. Few examples of Muslim atrocities and slaughters committed on Hindus.

  • As many as 80 million Hindus in India were murdered for refusing to be converted to Islam.
  • In 1947, Pakistan has 24% Hindus, today there are less than 1 percent Hindus.
  • In Bangladesh, the Hindu population is dwindled from nearly 30 percent to less than 7 percent.
  • India, Lo and behold, the Muslim population is multiplying day by day to make India a Muslim nation.  The percentage of Muslims in India has risen from about 8% in 1951 to 13.6% in 2001 and 14.6 % in 2010.
  • Hindu Kush Mountains, where Hindus were slaughtered for refusing to get converted to Islam. Blood used to flow all the way from the mountain top to the streets below.
  • In Afghanistan, the two largest standing Buddha’s were blown up Taliban by a lorry load of dynamites.
Eight Centuries of Atrocities on Hindus by Muslim Rulers
 

Dr. Younis Shaik observed atrocities of Muslims by saying that “eighty million were slaughtered and millions of women were raped…..it was standard practice for Islamic warlords like Ghori and Ghazni to unleash the mass rape and enslavement of hundreds of thousands of women after the slaughter of all males ….. A large percentage of Muslims in South Asia today are the progeny of forcible conversions and systematic rape campaigns by marauding Muslim invaders.”

Hindu Temples – What Happened to Them?

 

It is a two-volume book written by Sita Ram Goel, Arun Shourie, Harsh Narain, Jay Dubashi and Ram Swarup. The first volume was published in spring 1990. The first volume includes a list of 2000 mosques that were built on Hindu temples. It includes the names of the original Hindu Temple and the Mosque names – district-by-district and state-by-state. This list is based primarily on the books of Muslim historians of the period or the inscriptions of the mosques and also personal investigation.

Muslims have always targeted the most sacred religious places and Temples by destroying them in order to humiliate, annihilate and mutilate Hindus.

Sri Rama Temple at Ayodhya

On the site of the birth of Lord Rama, a magnificent temple devoted to Him was erected. However, Babur, a fifteenth Mogul invader, brutalized India and also destroyed Rama Temple. He raised a structure in its place, which he called Babri Masjid. The temple complex comprised of the Janmasthan of Sri Rama at Kot Ram Chander, the private

 

apartments (mahal sarai) of King Dashrath and Sri Rama, and a temple and a kitchen popularly known as Sita Ki Rasoi, where tradition held that Sita (wife of Sri Rama) lived. All three were demolished and a mosque constructed thereupon in 1528 A.D. For centuries Hindus tried to recover this auspicious site. In 2010, somewhat confusing verdict was issued by Allahabad High court accepting Ayodhya as a birth of Rama.

Krishna janmasthala in Mathura

 
The Keshava Rai Temple at Mathura was built by Bir Singh Deo Bundela during Jahangir’s time at a cost of thirty-three lakhs of rupees. The Dehra of Keshava Rai was one of the most magnificent temples ever built in India and enjoyed veneration of the Hindus throughout the land. Alberuni observed that this temple was approximately 20 times larger than the largest mosque he ever saw in his life.
  1. The next big temple was constructed here during the time of the Gupta Emperor Chandragupta Vikramaditya around 400 AD. This temple was so grand that it was said that neither painting nor description could describe it. Mahmud of Ghazni destroyed the temple in 1017 AD.
  2. Another temple was built here in 1150. It was destroyed in the 16th century during the reign of Sikander Lodi.
  3. The Dehra of Keshava Rai was demolished in the month of Ramzan (13 January – 11 February 1670) by Aurangzeb’s order. “In a short time, by the great exertion of the officers, the destruction of this strong foundation of infidelity was accomplished and on its site a lofty mosque was built at the expenditure of a large sum”. Thus the barbarian Islamic rulers Mohamud Ghazni, Sikander Lodi and Aurangzeb destroyed the Krishna Janmasthala. In fact Aurangzeb not only destroyed the Mandir in 1669-1670 but he built Idgah Qila (mosque) over it. Even today the visitors can still see the mosque on top of the Krishna Janmasthala to prove that the Hindus can be crushed, and made gutless and spineless.

Vishwanath Temple in Benares was the target of Islamic Terror:

Kashi Vishwanath Temple, Varanasi Kashi Vishwanath temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva. It is popularly known as the ‘Golden Temple’ due to the gold plating done on its 15.5-meter high spire. One tonnes of gold donated by Maharaja Ranjit Singh has been used in the gold plating of the spire. The temple was destroyed by various invaders and was rebuilt in 1776 by Rani Ahilyabai of Indore. Due to security reasons, metal detectors are placed throughout the temple. The Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb who built the Gaynvapi Mosque in its place destroyed the Vishwanath temple. Even today the western wall of the mosque show the remnants of a temple, which had very intricate and fine artwork on it. The original Shiva temple of Kashi finds mention in the scriptures.

The current temple is believed to have been built in the eleventh century, which was destroyed by Muhammad Ghori in the twelfth century. The temple was rebuilt by devotees but then demolished by the slave king QutubuddinAibak. After Aibak’s death, the temple was rebuilt with the permission of his successor, the slave king Altutmish, better known as the father of the first woman ruler of Delhi, Razia Sultana. The temple of Kashi Vishwanath was again destroyed by Feroze Shah Tughlaq in the fourteenth century.

The temple was rebuilt by Raja Todarmal, the revenue minister in the court of the Mughal king Akbar. Aurangzeb, Akbar’s great grandson demolished the temple, built a mosque known as the Gyanvapi mosque in its place, and even renamed the city Mohammedabad from Kashi. In the eighteenth century, the queen Ahilyabai Holkar rebuilt the temple, and in the nineteenth century, Maharaja Ranjit Singh donated 1000 kilos of gold to gold plate the temple spire and the dome. It is believed that the Gyanvapi well is the place where the original Shiva lingam was buried. It is said that the priests of the temple saved the lingam when Aurangzeb attacked the temple, by throwing it in a well. Visible from here, is the Gyanvapi mosque that Aurangzeb had built, the living proof from history of the destructive nature and the uselessness of narrow-mindedness and hatred. What the Historians and Islamic Travelers said about the Brutality Irfan Husain (Pakistani Writer) in his article “Demons from the Past” observes: “Their temples were razed, their idols smashed, their women raped, their men killed or taken slaves. When Mahmud of Ghazni entered Somnath on one of his annual raids, he slaughtered all 50,000 inhabitants. Aibak killed and enslaved hundreds of thousands. The list of horrors is long and painful. These conquerors justified their deeds by claiming it was their religious duty to smite non-believers. Cloaking themselves in the banner of Islam, they claimed they were fighting for their faith when, in reality, they were indulging in straightforward slaughter and pillage…”

 

Fernand Braudel wrote in A History of Civilizations (1995), that Islamic rule in India was "extremely violent", and "the Muslims could not rule the country except by systematic terror. Cruelty was the norm – burnings, summary executions, crucifixions or impalements, inventive tortures.

Hindu temples were destroyed to make way for mosques. On occasion there were forced conversions. If ever there were an uprising, it was instantly and savagely repressed: houses were burned, the countryside was laid waste, men were slaughtered and women were taken as slaves." V S Naipual has written extensively on the brutality of Muslims and how it wounded the richest, lone surviving cultures, that is Hinduism. Islam is born only to both enslaved and attempted to wipe out other cultures. "It has had a calamitous effect on converted peoples. To be converted you have to destroy your past, destroy your history. You have to stamp on it, you have to say 'my ancestral culture does not exist, it doesn't matter'."

Fatwas Issued to Slaughter Hindus The Muslims who issue Fatwas against Hindu Deities and Hindus are never prosecuted and brought to justice, thereby encouraging them to repeat their activities with more blasts and multiple bombs killing thousands of people.  They have even issued Fatwa against National song, yoga, Bhagavad Gita, Surya Namaskar, etc.  The Indian Mujahedeen had circulated an e-mail on July 8, 2008, in which they unequivocally threatened the Hindus thus: “(O Disbelievers). We are guiltless of you and whatever worship beside Allah, we have rejected you and there has arisen between us and you, enmity and hatred for ever – unless you believe in Allah and Him alone” (Quran 60.4).

After quoting verse from Quran the e-mail commanded the Hindus to convert to Islam in English in the following words: “O Hindus! O’ disbelieving faithless Indians! Haven’t you still realized that the falsehood of your 33 crore dirty mud idols and the blasphemy of your deaf, dumb, mute and naked idols of Ram, Krishna and Hanuman are not at all going to save your neck, Insha-Allah, from being slaughtered by our hands”? What action the government has taken against the IM who issued this Fatwa? Nothing. By not taking action against terrorists, Muslims who make hate speeches, Muslims who attack Hindus and Hindu Temples and stop the Temple activities, the central government is encouraging Muslims to openly express their hatred toward Hindu.

ISLAM means TERROR Across Globe

History cannot be ignored, hidden, negated and whitewashed.  Nearly 14 centuries of brutality, terror, bombings, killings, rapes, destruction of Hindu Temples, kidnapping Hindu women, enslaving Hindu women should teach us about the brutality of Islam and believers of Quran. Anybody equating the this violent, brutal, vicious, and intolerant with Hindus must be either a Hindu hater, hiding behind his religion, fearful of consequences of his actions, promoting the exclusive religion, encouraging Hindu holocaust, or failing to name the names.

Let us look at what Muslims have done over the last two-three decades and some of the incidents they have engaged in and some of the incidents that have resulted in numerous deaths: The Shoe Bomber was a Muslim; The Beltway Snipers were Muslims; The Fort Hood Shooter was a Muslim; The Underwear Bomber was a Muslim; The U-S.S. Cole Bombers were Muslims; The Madrid Train Bombers were Muslims, The Bali Nightclub Bombers were Muslims; The London Subway Bombers were Muslims; The Moscow Theatre Attackers were Muslims; The Boston Marathon Bombers were Muslims; The Pan-Am flight #93 Bombers were Muslims; The Air France Entebbe Hijackers were Muslims; The Iranian Embassy Takeover, was by Muslims; The Beirut U.S. Embassy Bombers were Muslims; The Libyan U.S. Embassy Attack was by Muslims; The Buenos Aires Suicide Bombers were Muslims; The Israeli Olympic Team Attackers were Muslims; The Kenyan U.S, Embassy Bombers were Muslims; The Saudi, Khobar Towers Bombers were Muslims; The Beirut Marine Barracks Bombers were Muslims; The Besian Russian School Attackers were Muslims; The First World Trade Center Bombers were Muslims; The Bombay, Mumbai, India Attackers were Muslims; The Achille Lauro Cruise Ship Hijackers were Muslims; The Nairobi, Kenya Shopping Mall Killers were Muslims; The September 11th 2001 Airline Hijackers were Muslims; The Sydney, Australia Lindt Cafe Kidnapper was a Muslim; The Peshawar, Pakistani School Children Killers were Muslims; Charlie Hebdo killers; Copenhagen attackers; Yezidi killers; Boko Haram killers and numerous other such attacks and bombings were all MUSLIMS. Ignorance or denial of history is not the answer to deal with terrorism and in fact, failure to identify and take appropriate action only encourages the Muslim terrorist to continue their mission to subdue the humanity to untold misery. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Islamic_terrorist_attacks   Major terror attacks in India

 

Muslims have terrorized, bombed, destroyed sacred places, attacked the Parliament and High Court, torched the hotels, exploded bombs in the train, bombed market places, killed foreigners, targeted Jews, and terrorized the innocent people and sacrificed the lives of these people in the name of Allah. These terrorist attacks spread all over India in such places as New Delhi, Bombay, Pune, Hyderabad, Varanasi, Mumbai, Malegaon, Jaipur, Bangalore, Ahmedabad, Guwahati, Kanpur, Mathura and other places. It is in the name of Allah. It is all according the verses found in Quran and Hadiths. Please click on the link to see the List of Major Terrorist Activities in India:

Verses from Quran

 

Now let us look at some of the verses in Quran that might have influenced their violent behavior. For brevity sake only very few verses from Quran are listed.

"And as for those who disbelieved, I will punish them with a severe punishment in this world and the Hereafter, and they will have no helpers". Quran 3:56.

Allah will throw fear into the hearts of the disbelievers, and smite their necks and fingers. The Quran, Sura 8:12

The fires of hell will be fueled with the bodies of idolaters and unbelievers. They will experience an ever-greater torment. The Quran, Sura 72:15-17

Smite the necks of the disbelievers whenever you fight against them. Those who die fighting for Allah will be rewarded. The Quran, Sura 47:4

“So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captives and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush, then if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them.”  Quran, Sura 9:5.

“Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.” Quran (9:29)

“And if any fail to judge by the light of what Allah has revealed, they are no better than unbelievers.” (Q 5:47)  “Sovereignty in Islam is the prerogative of Almighty Allah alone. He is the absolute arbiter of values and it is His will that determines good and evil, right and wrong.” (Mohammed Hashim Kamali, Principles of Islamic Jurisprudence, 3d rev. ed., (Cambridge, UK:  The Islamic Text Society, 2003), 8.).

These and other similar verses in Quran are used by many radical Muslims to justify their brutal, violent, torturous, and treacherous actions against nonbelievers and declare jihad (struggle). There are many verses in the Qur'an that call for the destruction of Jews and Christians in addition to nonbelievers.

Democracy is illegitimate as per Islam

 

That means any constitution or any law passed by anybody or any country is considered illicit under Islamic law.  If any country fail to the test of Sharia law, they are considered unbelievers. The only law that is accepted by adherents of Allah is Shariah. Any democratic society or any society that would not adhere to Islamic law should be overthrown. That is the reason that the Muslims have massacred nearly billion people in India, destroyed the Temples, converted people with ruthless sword, overthrown many kingdoms, converted thousands of Hindu Temples into mosques, looted the wealth, and raped countless Hindu women.

Sharia law guides all aspects of Muslim law such as marriage, abortion, divorce, dress, inheritance, custody, women’s rights, punishments for the crime, and others. If we fail to identify the roots of the evil, terrorism, beheading, and killings as Quran, we are delaying the agony and torture of people by Islamic terrorists and most likely give more impetus for the ISIS and other Terrorists more time to occupy more and more countries and slowly reach the shores of Western societies and United States, if they have not already in a position strike at will.

Blasphemy against Islam argument may ban Quran itself Raymond Ibrahim

observed that Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) with membership of 57 Muslim countries called on United Nations to criminalize “blasphemy” against Islam. Blasphemy is defines as any act of insulting or showing contempt or lack of reverence for God or irreverence toward something that is considered sacred. As per OIC request if UN criminalize blasphemy of Islam, that means if somebody defames, or insults Islam, Allah or Mohammad by publishing books critical of Quran like Satanic Verses; criticizes Islam like Geert Wilders and Hyaan Hirsi Ali; and draws controversial cartoons of Muhammad, they will be treated as criminals.

If UN agrees to their request, it would ban cartoons, books, films, and critical speeches because they defame, demean, insult and slander Islam. By the same token, the Quran would be banned as it contains hundreds of verses defaming other religions, their belief system, and their worship places. A number of verses are listed in the article about kafirs (non-believers). There are some verses condemning Christians and Jews by name. Since these statements are hateful, insulting and slander other religions, is it logical that the UN resolution would ban the Quran itself? President Obama falsely Links Poverty to Terrorism

 

Based on the statement made by Marie Harf, State Department spokesperson, who appeared on Hardball program, it is clear that the Obama administration is operating under the patently false belief that Muslims are joining the Islamic State and engaged in beheading, terrorizing, immolating, crucifying, enslaving, intimidating, and raping “infidels” because they are economically impoverished. These Islamic terrorists lack job opportunities. According to the President they resort to terrorism because they lack educational opportunities, are trapped in impoverished condition, and do not see any path for advancement.

“So if we’re serious about countering violent extremism, we have to get serious about confronting these economic grievances.”  It is preposterous, unfortunate and ridiculous to even imply that Islam is the root cause of all the terrorism even since Islam came in to existence. A number of studies have shown that that poverty, economic condition, or job opportunities have nothing to do with extremism, terrorism and torture. Claude Berrebi, Princeton trained economist concluded: “If there is a link between income level, education and participation in terrorist activities, it is either very weak or in the opposite direction of what one intuitively might have expected.”

Similarly, Marc Sageman could not find any correlation between poverty and terrorism and in his book, Understanding Terror Networks, he stated that overwhelming majority of jihadis “were generally middle-class, educated young men from caring and religious families, who grew up with strong positive values of religion, spirituality and concern for their communities.” Egyptian sociologist Saad E Ibrahim also conclude that the Islamist radicals he analyzed “were significantly above the average of their generation” in education, financial background, and motivation. Other studies further buttress these conclusions. 

Nasra Hassan, based on her interviews with nearly 250 Palestinians, concluded that "None of [the bombers] were uneducated, desperately poor, simple-minded, or depressed. Many were middle class and, unless they were fugitives, held paying jobs…Two were the sons of millionaires." If poverty, lack of educational opportunities and economic grievances are the root cause of Islamic terrorism, then why do we not see similar terrorism, bombings, beheading, and intimidation in most of the Asian countries, South American countries and some African counties?  In the history of India where Hindus are majority, can we imagine Hindu radicalism to the level of Islamic radicalism?   Can we imagine Hindus using poverty for justifying the untold torture, brutality, and radicalism on the humanity? Sooner we identify Islam as the root cause of terrorism, sooner we find the solution and better we will be equipped to deal with the enemy. As Ira Straus mentioned that, “Islam is the bottom-floor root cause of Islamic terrorism.” Hinduism

 

The main thrust of the paper is that President Obama is mistaken to equate tolerant, peaceful, respectful and nonviolent Hinduism with deceptive, violent, intolerant, disrespectful, and terrorist Christianity and Islam. Let us remember the words of Arnold Toynbee, who has written 18 volumes describing all great civilizations, about the survival of humanity, "It is already becoming clear that a chapter which had a Western beginning will have to have an Indian ending if it is not to end in self-destruction of the human race. At this supremely dangerous moment in human history, the only way of salvation is the ancient Hindu way.” What is this Hindu way? PEACE ON EARTH.

Mutual Respect is utmost important among all religions and to remain in peace and harmony without being splintered on religious lines.

Rajiv Malhotra argued that by respectful is to acknowledge that all religions are legitimate and equally valid paths to God as long as one religion claims to be exclusive and demean the practices of other religions. He argued that tolerance should be replaced by mutual respect. Tolerance implies inferiority while mutual respect implied equality. President Obama should advocate the mutual respect among all religions so that they would not splinter on the exclusivity and superiority. In 2013,

Pope Francis wrote to Muslims following the end of Ramadan that there should be mutual respect between the two religions. By respect, he meant “an attitude of kindness towards people for whom we have consideration and esteem’ and goes on to say that mutuality is something shared by both sides and this is not a one-way process. Hindus have always displayed the symbols of all religions at homed, Ashrama, Mutts and other places to imply that we respect other religions for what they are. Similar approach to other religions is lacking by Christians and Muslims. One wonders as to why Pope did not address the issue referring to all the religions instead of talking about mutual respect only between Christians and Muslims. Peace on Earth for everybody

 

Hindus only talk about peace, mutual respect, kindness, and nonviolence. Hindu literature is replete with peace mantra that are chanted in every home, every temple and on every occasion. This is one of the Peace Mantras that passes the lips of millions of Hindus every day to bless the entire cosmos.  “May peace radiate there in the whole sky as well as in the vast ethereal space everywhere? May peace reign all over this earth, in water and in all herbs, trees and creepers? May peace flow over the whole universe? May peace be in the Supreme Being Brahman? And May there always exist in all peace and peace alone.”

Arnold Toynbee was so much convinced about the richness and peacefulness of India, he was asking India to be save the world with its message of tolerance, peace and tranquility. “So now we turn to India. This spiritual gift, that makes a man human, is still alive in Indian souls. Go on giving the world Indian examples of it. Nothing else can do so much to help mankind to save itself from destruction.”

Om peace, peace and peace to us and all beings!
