bbc has sudden attack of sanity

oct 6

bbc, tell me it ain't true!

what, you've been afflicted by an unexpected and unprecedented attack of good sense? what happened to your usual pakistani and marxist editors? asleep at the wheel?

of course, in the next 24 hours, there will be a retraction, as the 'eminent historians' and arjun singh get on the warpath and have the thing reversed.

there will be a little note saying, 'never mind', and we'll be back to racist mythology as usual. we can all sigh in relief then.

a friend who forwarded this thought it was a sudden and inexplicable increase in the bbc's IQ. i wouldnt count on it.

hip, hip, hooray!

I hope our own chistist/marxist/congress nexus reads this and stop the malicious propoganda in the controlled media and alters our obsolete text books to reflect the real history of India.

If some RSS guy beame tachno savvy and hacked BBC websight to question the racial mythology, then surely BBC would start a detoxifaction programme and throw their servers in Ganga.

The BBC has another page - http://www.bbc.co.uk/religion/religions/hinduism/history/index.shtml - that it actually states to be the main history page for Hinduism. The other page - where the AIT is disproven - is only linked as a favor, it seems...

I cant believe this.. !!! Surprise Surprise. So all Indians, whether dark or light, whether short or tall, whatever ,, are one people. One race.
Also had one language, before the Nehroo (nehroo literally means someone from the drain, nalla, neher) came in and divided India into linguistic states, and played caste politics.

Whew.. this is from BBC.. whats wrong with the brits. Seems since they left eating mad cows, they got some sanity back into them. Or are they disillusioned after sleeping around with the Pakis.

This is great news. Finally Truth prevails..If this gets publicised, then we can expect our leftist/christist jehadis holding protests with Pakistanis in front of all british embasies across the globe for 'safronising' BBC!!

Like another reader commented, the first page of the five pages repeats the Aryan Invasion Theory in toto with only a link on that page to the fifth page that talks about why the AIT is not based on facts. I would suppose that there were two authors at least of this piece. No the BBC hasn't changed it's spots.

Rajeev,

There is this individual by name Jay Lakhani in London, who is incharge of 'Vivekananda Center London'. He is quite in forefront of bringing true Hinduism to mainstream British society, and he is managing it extraordinarily. In connection with this, he recently met with BBC executives. I don't know if there is any connection with the debunking of Aryan Invasion by BBC with the meeting he had with them.

Here is the email from him regarding his meeting with them----

Last Thursday we had a lengthy meeting with the Head of Religion & Ethics at the BBC, together with a string of executives in charge of religious programming. Our concerns and ideas were received warmly. How quickly some of these ideas become integrated in present programming or in future programmes is something we cannot guarantee but we have set the ball rolling. The head of BBC Religion/Ethics was well impressed with some of the ideas we advocated, but we also became very aware of serious resistance from one or two executives who were not so 'keen' on such dynamic ideas of Hinduism getting on air. They exhibited serious resistance and outlined a list of 'difficulties' they faced, like fighting for finance within the BBC, or how difficult it is to turn subtle ideas into an acceptable programme format.

One thing that made us smile is that the 'Conference pack' the BBC had produced and distributed to all the participants had a copy of the Hinduism for Today article about the work of the Vivekananda Centre London in using the teachings of Vivekananda to revive the message of spirituality in UK.

We live in interesting times! It seems that our mentors who are sometimes referred to as messengers of spirituality to the West are now keen to enter the Western media and may be doing so in the most unusual manner : )

Please stop getting worked up abuot nonissues . Aryan invasion was supposed to have taken place 3500 -4000 yrs ago .How does it matter whether it took place or not . Most nations are much younger than that and all are composed of migrants (except maybe Tanzania / Zaire were Homo Sapiens evolved ) . Is the Hindus sense of identity so fragile that it is distorted by happenings of such ancient past .Germany , Britain and USA are predominantly constituted by Anglo Saxons who migrated not more than a thousand years back . Bt these contries are fiercely nationalistic ( In USA , maximum migrants are from Germany who fought against their old country in WW II ) . Let us not live of a diet od stale past glories . Hindu society is extremely disunited today ( as it was always). Are we going to work for unity ? I have a feeling that the majority of commentators on this blog are NRIs who have no idea of the reality of India and have no real solutions either .

Mitra, your name sounds Bengali. Therefore I would safely say, all of us now the realty of what a hell-hole Bengal is under the marxists. Kindly stop your marxist rant.

This 'mitra' is a lying commie. He is the same guy who posted earlier as 'AKSingh' pretending to be an angry Sikh. You can tell by his semi-literate punctuation. Just like the infamous Maoputra. Another marxist pretending he's something he is not. These guys are India's worst problem. Rajeev, you should get his IP address via blogspot, track him down and expose his real identity.

mitra said...

Ho,Ho,Ho. How angry these Brahminical con men can get when their game is exposed.They have been conning Indians for thousands of years now . Don't you dare to read the Vedas - because then you will know that these are not even great literature . Dont dare to go to foreign lands - because our pathetic Brahminical supremacy will be exposed . Vedanta my foot . If I keep reading Archie comics for thousands of years , even that will produce distilled wisdom . Back home you Brahminicals are nobody . You have only past and no future . So dont waste your breath .

Anonymous said...

Ha,Ha,Ha. mitra, the very fact that you waste your time and breath in this blog shows how shit scared you types are of the right-wingers. We never waste our breath at any of the crappy commie websites. We know your time is up. Once upon a time there was this mighty commie empire AKA Soviet Union...

BTW, most of the top brass of the communist parties in India are from the much hated Brahmin and other upper castes. Why dont you start a cultural revolution and bury these top commies alive, so that the true 'proletariat' can assume power in your party?

mitra said...

Ho,Ho,Ho . How dense these Right-wingers are . No wonder BJP could not last beyond one term . Do you need any further proof of rejection by Indians .

There goes this comrade mitra, Brahmin bashing.It is futile remonstrating with them,as surface grazers end up being garrulous nitpickers.

By the way,the word 'Brahmin'and 'Brahmachari' truly mean one who is anchored in 'Brahmagnanam'.If you read spiritual classics like 'Periyapuranam','Bhaktha Vijayam''Aazhwaar Charithiram'and the like you would know most of the Devotees who merge in the 'Paramathma' belong to various varnams and very few of them have been Brahmins.Priests are those who have been so ordained to carry out their duties nothing more.

Saints have always risen to the occasion to restore balance,as when Sant Gnaneshwar made a buffalo recite 'Vedam'in the presence of haughty pundits.BUT,remember,He did not proclaim in the name of equality that buffaloes hitherto shall perform Vedic rites!

Last time,this mitro had rejoiced that not many have come in support of our Kanchi Shankracharya.Well mitro,that is immaterial to a 'Gnaani',as a mob generally has many heads but no brains.

Heard of Sri Dattatreya who shunned comrades (comrade means people of com (little calibre) rate) like plague?

Comrade Mitra said...

Buffaloes recite Vedas ?????? Are you serious . I am speechless if I am expected to believe this .

Mitra is not a comrade since commies are controlled by brahmins and commies love brahmin supremacy as they believe in it. Read his posts again , he is some inferior christist, sitting in some 'semen-ary'. This traitor loves to froth on brahimnical supremacy to divide our nation. He talks like a cheap Christist priest.

How can you be so sure that Comrade-Christist Mitra is not a Mullah ...

Irerspective of who Mitra is, two of his comments are noteworthy. One is about National unity and the second is about branding all respondants to this blog as NRIs who, he believes, have no idea of the problems the nation faces and therefore cannot proffer any solutions.

Unfortunately, Mitra himself(herself) does not foster much unity through name calling ("you... Bramhins, you.... NRIs....."). So, there you go. Let us begin with some serious attempts of fostering nationalism, Mitra. Ridiculing your own fellow Indians isn't a good way to begin with nationalism and unity, or would it?

Mitra also ridicules NRIs of being unaware of the reality in India. Salil Tripathi ( a London based journalist) wrote an article in the WSJ ("India's Divided Left Undermines Economic Growth" WSJ 7 Oct 05) that spells out one issue that seems to haunt the functioning of the Central Govt. ever since it came to power with the help of the leftists. At the centre, the leftists have persistently denied the Govt the opportunity to privatise its public units, as well as to open up to foreign investment. But, the article points out, the communists are doing just the opposite in West Bengal. "After returning from Jakarta, West Bengal's chief minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharya told reporters that "if we cannot reform and perform, we will perish… We cannot follow North Korea and stick to dogmas," and pointed out that "even China and Vietnam" are Communist states which are implementing reforms" quotes the article. Is it correct to say this double standard is one isue that ails the nation at the moment, Mitra? And if you agree, what solution would you offer?

This is fantastic! I couldn't believe it when I read this in BBC. Usually, BBC and The Economist publish nothing but trash using thir Pakistani Muslim slaves/prxies and they also hire Indian Marxists whom they love. In this way, they feel they can denigrate and weaken India.

I think the brits have become smarter since their attack on 7/7. They are still so upset that they no longer rule India, that they thought that by allowing islamic terrorists to flourish on their soil that they could keep Hindus down. Well...the birds came back to roost. The muslim terrorists didn't appreciate ANY of the welfare they got. In fact, they hated the brits even more!

Yup. I think the Brits have learned their lesson--they will NEVER keep India down by supporting islamo-fascists.

The one thing I can't seem to understand is why ghora christians believe in the AIT...They denigrate the Hindu religion, but they claim that they "gave" it to India because everything good they brought to India. If they believe Hinduism is great then why aren't they following it? Why haven't they become Hindus themselves?

It's an incredible contradiction. The worst thing is that so many Hindus believe these total lies.
