Hindu Mahasabha of America (HMSA) Houston Chapter Observes Hindu Memorial Day 2013
September 1st, 2013
September 1st, 2013 – (Houston, TX). Hindu Mahasabha of America aka Hindu Congress of America (HMSA) observed Hindu memorial day in Houston to commemorate Hindus who have been victims of Hindu human rights violation globally. The program began with a silent prayer in memory of Hindus who laid down their life in defending Hinduism. Many eminent speakers from various faculties spoke during this event.
Dr. Babu Suseelan, one of the director of New York based Indian Intellectual Forum (IIF) and an renowned scholar on Hindu human rights spoke on significance and historicity of Hinduism. He mentions that current-ly Hindus, Hinduism and motherland is in crisis. The biggest problem is Hin-dus are not participating in democratic process via voting whereas Muslims in India are voting in large numbers—as a result more and more elected rep-resentatives are more inclined to serve Muslim interests and ignoring Hindus requirement towards developing social—political and religious policies at state and national assembly. He says that if Hindus vote in large number there wouldn’t be a problem of minority vote bank or appeasement. He re-quest all Hindus to vote for Narendra Modi in upcoming Lok Sabha elections not for personal reasons but Hindutva, which is an ideology for peace and prosperity in India and worldwide. Hindutva is cultural nationalism (like considering cow as sacred, considering Ganges as sacred river and love for motherland and ancestors etc). He mentions the urgent need to understand anti-Hindu forces schemes and projects to gain control over the way our motherland is to run and our way of life.
Spoke on ‘Terrorism around the world” . He presented some real scenarios where systematically one by one key nationalist institutions in India are dilut-ed to embolden anti –Hindu agenda. Like the issue of increase in Beef exports from India, communal violence in Mumbai, UP, Kishtwar riots, Assam Riots, Bikers gang in Delhi etc. Similarly how Armed forces and intelligence agen-cies (CBI, IB, RAW) in India are being targeted and demoralized, appease-ment of ISI and Pakistan based terror outfits by some politicians for cheap vote bank politics. How Varun Gandhi was legally victimized for his speech (which focused towards protecting Hindus) but Owaisi (an MLA from AP) was given a free ride for his hate speech against Hindus. Such anti-Hindu and anti-India agenda aims towards demoralizing nationalist security apparatus, make Hindus feel cheap and worthless by raping their women under Love Ji-had, rob the economy and committing crime against Hindu women who are the our mothers and sisters. He suggested three way approach. First: Hindus should change their attitude ( renunciation of duty for Dharma and nation), vote and support honest nationalist leaders. Connect all Hindu temples and Hindu organizations for common cause. If we follow If we follow distorted principals of Gandhi – where they forgot meaning of non-co-operation and , people will not only hit you, but demoralize you in worst possible way and crush you and move away. Theory of Buddha changing somebody heart is distant dream. nobody have changed Hyena heart. It can not be. It is unnatural.
Prof. T R Narasimha Rao, an eminent Hindu scholar and past president of Hindu University of America, Florida spoke on how brainwashing of Hindu youth is rampart with a pro Islamic mindset. Why with a 80% majority Hindus are being politically suppressed. How conversions are used to keep religions alive. He said Hindus should be optimistic and confident as even after 1000 years of suppression by Islamic and British Raj—Hinduism is still flourishing. He mentioned that Nehru retained the social and cultural policies of Britishers in Bharat and congress party is continuing that colonial agenda. Lastly he mentioned that Hindus have to do their dharma and at this stage Hindus should vote for Narendra Modi in complete capacity and support him from overseas. He reiterated the message of Swami Vivekananda who taught that Hindu Dharma is above and everything.
Mr. Pramod Buravalli, coordinator OFBJP Texas educated audience on Mission –2014, which aim to bring Narendra Modi led NDA to power at center. He emphasized the point where political power is es-sential to safeguard national and cultural interest. He requested Hindus to join this mission and do their Dharma.
Mr. Rahul Chandra, a distinguished Hindu scholar on socio – political activism and Governing Council member of Vishwa Hindu Parishad of America (VHPA) educated audience on strategic and tactical approach to prevent further Hindu human rights violations and subsequent holocaust. He mentions that it’s anti—Hindu ideology that leads to formation of institutions and institutions im-plements projects. Currently three prominent ideologies are against Hinduism – Miltant Islam, Communism and Missionary based forced conversion. For example ( but not limited to) Pakistan sponsored Jihadist ideology has institutions like ISI, Islamic underworld and Jihadist organizations (LET, JED) , each institution has it’s own projects impacting Hindus at social, religious and political spectrums. He emphasized that the reason for suppression of Hindus and Hinduism is because Hindus don’t know who their opposition is. Neither they are aware schemes of anti Hindu ideology, nor they are aware of institutions which support that ideology and as per war methodology literature ‘Art of War’ by Sun Tzu and Chanakya’s niti— if you don’t know your enemies and their strength / weakness—how can you develop a strategy?. As a result Hindus are missing a uniform long term sustainable global strategy to counter such ideological and physical attacks.
Once Hindus are aware of above said nexus— they would be in a better position in developing both offensive and defensive counter strategies. Another reason for such ignorance among Hindus is persisting closed system (not thinking out of box) attribute of social & political Hindu organizations towards promoting and implementing innovative thoughts, ideas and associated projects for catering to contemporary Hindu requirements , in many scenarios it’s observed that if some activist comes up with an innovative revolutionary idea towards Hindu empowerment— leaders sometimes takes a back seat, even without primarily analysis. Leaders of Hindu organizations have to be bold and courageous if they expect workers to move forward and succeed. More visionary and farsighted leadership is required among Hindu organizations. Establishment of powerful international think tanks is need of time where ideas can be quickly implemented and deployed. He suggest Hindus to join Pro Hindu organizations and em-power them as an office bearer, volunteer or donator.
Mr. Dilip Mehta, a renowned worldwide Hindu leader and President of Hindu Mahasabha of America (HMSA) thanked all speakers and guests. He educated the audience on HMSA mission, goal and objectives — to fight for Hindu cause socially and politically platforms with worldwide scope. He referred to Bhagavad Gita verse which says: Ahimsa paramo dharmaha, Dharma himsa tathaiva (‘Non-Violence is the greatest Dharma, so too is all righteous violence to protect Dharma’) in short it’s right to fight back to protect or motherland, dharma and culture if we have to save our self.
Hindu Memorial Day (HMD) is observed to commemorate (Shradhanjli ) to Hindus who died by Muslims and British atrocities. For thousand years Hindus have been slaughtered, humiliated and plundered. In the memory of those departed souls we observe memorial day. Millions of Hindus suffered social, economic and political persecution as a result of division of area. HMD is also observed to commemorate Hindus who have been victim of human rights violations across the world since time immemorial.
