kinda hard for bangladesh to take action against 'militants' considering that is the entire mohammedan population there

aug 31st, 2008

since the 97% mohammedan population of bangladesh, including the millions already resident in india, are religious fanatics, they are all terrorists or potential terrorists. so it is meaningless to sign any agreement which indicts 97% of a country's population.

naturally, count on xinhua propaganda agency to propagate such a meaningless 'agreement'.

it really is prachanda's up-yours to india

aug 31st, 2008

just as bangladesh regularly thumbs its nose at india by shooting indian soldiers and then delivering them on bamboo poles as though they were pigs, nepal is doing the same with the kosi river bomb.

they all know the napumsaka 'leaders' of india are only tigers when it comes to killing hindus. when confronted with mohammedans or communists, they are pussycats.

aug 31st, 2008

yet another communist fifth-columnist goes on a very controlled guided tour of chinese-occupied tibet and files a glowing report. this is probably lifted verbatim from xinhua propaganda.

n ram has started the "chinese school of propaganda" (aka asian school of journalism) in chennai which trains a lot of such wide-eyed fifth-columnists.

"For the Chinese government, the politics and development of Tibet, an autonomous region covering almost one-eighth of the country's area, has been a complex issue with a troubling international dimension. An interesting development in recent years is the growing information flow on Tibet now available on the Net from official, unofficial and news sources within Tibet. This offers a credible and informed alternative to the assertions and assumptions of the pro-Dalai press. Along with greater transparency that will result from the opening of the region, the terms of the debate over the Tibet question will surely become more balanced and fair."

LJP favours citizenship for Bangladeshis

Sun, Aug 31 07:05 PM

 

Pushkar (Rajasthan), Aug 31 (ANI): The Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) favours giving citizenship to Bangladeshis staying in the country and advocated reservation for the economically weak and minorities in Government and private sectors.

 
A resolution passed on Sunday by the LJP, headed by Union Minister Ram Vilas Paswan, at Pushkar, Rajasthan said, "Those Bangladeshis who are already staying in India should be provided citizenship. Further infiltration should be checked. There should be strict vigil on the border".
 
The party supported reservation for the "socially and economically" backward groups.
 
The resolution said, "The party feels that in view of their social and economic conditions, the Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribe people should get reservation in private sector. Every community or group should have equal representation in all sectors."
Quota benefits should also be provided to Dalit Christians and Dalit Muslims to enable them to join the main stream, it added.
 
For the economically weaker sections among the upper castes the LJP is in favour of giving 10 per cent reservation in central government jobs.
 
The resolution also said that employment should be a fundamental right of every citizen in the country.
 
The party also criticised ban on Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI) and demanded setting up of an independent inquiry commission with social scientists and human rights activists as its member to study the role of various organisations in spreading terror and communal tension. (ANI)
 
 
 


narain kataria: Why Hindus are angry at Muslims in India?

aug 31st, 2008

kaleem kawaja is a very good al-taqiya expert, forever whining about how mohammedans are ill-treated in india, while happily enjoying the atrocities committed on hindus by mohammedans.

kawaja, of course, is considered a great friend by the treacherous communists of indian origin in the us like the FOIL, ASHA, AID types.

To:

Why Hindus are angry at Muslims in India?

 

From:  Narain Kataria, New York

 

 To:  The Editor, India Tribune

Here is my response to Kaleem Kawaja's letter titled "Why Hindus are angry at Muslims in India," published in the India Tribune of August 2, 2008

Hindus have not just one but one million reasons to be angry at Muslims in India. Let me list only a few of them for Mr. Kawaja's kind-hearted understanding, even though I believe Mr. Kawaja is deliberately acting to be ignorant of the reasons behind this Hindu mindset and the history – past and present. So, I will try to make it as simple and as clear for him as possible… and, for all those 'secularists' and Leftists who pretend to be naive just like Mr. Kawaja.

1.      First of all, Hindus hold Muslims responsible for the vivisection of their country that they consider as their MOTHER. Hindus adorably call it Bharat-Mata, Matru-Bhoomi, Puniya-Bhoomi, Dharma-Bhoomi, Swarag-Bhoomi, etc.

2.      Hindus cannot understand why the Muslims are still living in India.  It is a well-known fact that in 1946 elections, more than 90% of the Muslims voted for the breakup of the greater India and the creation of a Muslim land called Pakistan.  Despite getting their Muslim land – believe it or not – only 15% Muslims left for the Pakistan and 85% of them stayed put in India. Hindus really want all these Muslims living in India to leave Hindus alone in their country.

3.      Hindus are upset that Muslims are having a cake and want to eat it too.  Thus, Hindus can see that Muslims have opened a separate bank account for Muslims in Pakistan and Bangladesh, while they are operating a joint bank account with Hindus in IndiaThis is not right and absolutely unfair. Hindus do not want to share the India with Muslims.

4.      Again, at the time of Partition of India in 1947, there were 20% Hindus and Sikhs in Pakistan.  Now there are only 1% or so.  In 1947 there were more than 30% Hindus in East Pakistan (now Bangladesh), at this time there are only 8% Hindus there. Hindus want Muslims to explain what happened to all those Hindus. Hindus are absolutely unhappy about the ethnic cleansing of Hindus in Pakistan and Bangladesh.

5.      Conversely, during the same period the Muslim population in India has been rising with leaps and bounds.  Muslim numbers in India have risen from 9% in 1951 to 15% now.  Hindus abhor this.  In the unprecedented rise of Muslim population in India, Hindus clearly see a mortal threat to their very existence as Hindus. They see this as a conspiracy to breakup and divide their country all over again.

6.      Hindus simply will never be able to forget the massive scale of rapes, murders, loot and mayhem let lose by Muslims on the peaceful Hindus in Kashmir and the vicious ethnic cleansing in their own country. 

7.      How can Hindus forget massacre of our 35 Sikh brothers at Chattisinghpora in the State of Jammu and Kashmir in year 2000, an attack on Jammu and Kashmir State Legislature in October, 2001, another attack on the India's National Parliament in December 2001, yet another attack on the American Cultural Center in January 2002, the roasting alive of 56 women and children in February 2002 at Godhra Railway Station in Gujarat State, the killing of more than 30 members of families of Army personnel in May 2002, serial bomb attacks on passenger trains and public places in the country's financial capital Mumbai on August 2005 that killed 46 people and injured 160, another devilish attack on the Hindu religious place, the Akshardham Temple in September 2002 – 29 individuals including 16 women and four children killed, the butchering of Hindus in Mau in State of Uttar Pradesh, the Delhi bomb blasts in October 2005 – 70 people killed,  massacre of Gujjars in Doda and Udhampur, in State of Jammu and Kashmir in May 2006,  a second series of Mumbai train bomb blasts in July 2006 – 200 people dead, a separate series of bomb blasts in Lucknow, Varanasi, Jaipur, Ahmedabad and Bangluru – hundreds killed.

8.      While Hindus in Jammu agitating for the legitimate rights of Hindu pilgrims in Amernath raise the slogan of Bharat Mata ki Jai, the Muslims in Srinagar, to the great mortification and chagrin of Hindus, wave green flags of Pakistan and openly raise the slogans of Pakistan Zindabad (long live Pakistan)!  This treacherous behavior of Muslims is unacceptable and outrageous to Hindus and causes a serious heartburn to them. 

9.      Recently, in a shocking disclosure, India's National Security Advisor, M.K. Narayanan while talking to newsmen in Singapore disclosed that 800 terrorist cells are operating in the country.  These home grown terrorists are none other than the Indian Muslims who provide shelter, guidance, financial assistance and other infrastructure facilities to the terrorists to kill more and more Hindus and destabilize Indian economy.  Hindus have every reason to express their indignation and angst at this blatant anti-national activity.

10.  All Kashmiri Muslims are doing roaring business all over India.  There are Haj Houses all over the country.  But the Muslim leaders are openly and repeatedly declaring that they would not give "an inch of land" in Hindu India to Shri Amarnath Shrine Board.  What an act of ingratitude!

11.  Hindus simply cannot erase from their memory the Great Killings of Calcutta on August 16-17, 1946 in which more than 5,000 Hindus were butchered by Muslim fanatics supported by the Muslim Chief Minister of Bengal.  Hindus also vividly recall the genocide of 5,000 unarmed Hindus in Noakhali in Bengal State around the same time.  Hindus simply cannot forget the beastly brutalities perpetrated by the West Pakistani Muslim military establishment on the East Pakistan Hindus during the Bangladesh uprising in 1971. Events like these are unparalleled in the history of humanity. 

12.  Describing the unimaginable capacity of the Muslim mind to conduct the dance of devil, Mr. A. Ghosh, the celebrated author of book "Kafir and Quran," writes: "In many cases a whole community (of Hindus in East Pakistan) was encircled.  Mothers and daughters were raped on a mass scale, in presence of brothers or fathers.  Breasts of elderly ladies were chopped off.  Pregnant women were disemboweled; infants' heads were smashed on the floor.  Then followed the chopping off of genitals, gouging out of eyes, and on and on and on.  As a grand finale, everybody was put in a house and the house was set on fire."

13.  Hindus also remember very well as to how the Sikh Guru Arjun Dev was made to sit on a hot plate over the raging fire and the hot sand was poured over his body… until he died. Hindus and Sikhs will never be able to forget as to how another Sikh Guru, Teg Bahadur Saheb, was murdered in cold blood by the Muslims because he refused to convert to Islam.  Hindus remember the two young sons of the last Sikh Guru, Gobind Singh, who were bricked alive by the Muslim ruler, as they refused to embrace the Islam.

14.  For the information of Mr. Kawaja, listed here are only a few of the Muslim militant organizations that preach hatred and violence against the Kafirs… principally the Hindus, Sikhs, Jains and Buddhists… and are working overtime to establish Nizame-Mustafa (the Islamic domination) in India:  (1) Muslim Volunteer Force, (2) Islamic Revolutionary Front, (3) Islamic Liberation Army of Assam, (4) Jamait-e-Islami, (4) Hurriyat Conference, (5) Jamit-al-Quran Hadis, (6) Tamilnadu Muslim Munnetra Kazhagam, (7) Al Ummah, (8) Islamic Movement of India, (8) Student Islamic Movement of India (the notorious SIMI), (9) Islamic Youth Center, (10) Jihad Committee, (11) Muslim United Liberation Tigers of Assam, (12) Muslim Liberation Front of Assam, (13) Al Huda, (14) Jehad, (15) Tehreek-ul-Mujahideen, (16) National Democratic Front, (17) Mili Parliament, (18) Indian Muslim Mohammadi Mujahideen, and (19) Indian Mujaheden.  The principal aim of all the above groups is the annihilation of Hindus.

15.  Hindus in India and the Indian subcontinent have witnessed an unprecedented continued chain of barbarism by Muslims in the last 1400 years.  In 712 A.D., the then Governor of Iraq sitting two thousand miles away from the Indian capital Delhi, ordered the Iraqi Muslim ruler in India to bring about the destruction on unbeliever Hindus (unbeliever: the Hindus that do not believe in Islam) if they did not accept Islam.  The historical chronicles tell us that in the merciless slaughter that ensued, 26,000 Hindu men were murdered and 20,000 young Hindu girls were enslaved and dispatched to Khalifa in Baghdad

16.  Akbar was the slaughterer of Hindus. Jahangir, in his autobiography "Tarikh-i-Salim Shahi" wrote that under Akbar and Jahangir "five to six hundred thousand (over half a million) Hindus were killed." (Tarikh-i-Salim: Translated By Price, pp. 225-6). In Akbar's military conquest of Chittor in the State of Rajasthan, Abul Fazl recorded that "on Akbar's orders, eight thousand Rajput warriors were first disarmed and then slain; along with them forty thousand peasants also were slain." (The Islamic treatment of PoW, Surah 8, Ayat 67, the Quran) (Akbarnama by Abul Fazl translated into English by H. Beveridge)

We can go on and on and on… with the never-ending saga of Muslim misdeeds against the Hindus. Hindus may not have readily available with them the specific details of the each one of the above acts of extreme Muslim brutality. The Hindu 'secular' leadership also takes extreme pains to ensure that the endless tails of Muslim atrocities… against the Hindus… do not get recalled, remembered, written, memorialized, entered in history books, or spoken from the public platforms.

But the naked truth is that the painful wounds of Muslim savagery, treachery, betrayal, deceit, dishonesty, disloyalty, duplicity… on the naïve Hindu psyche… are too numerous to count and too deep to heal.

These painful sores of history – the distant past and still ongoing – have traumatized the Hindus so much and for so long that they just cannot be healed, nor can their memory be completely erased from the Hindu subconscious mind.  Hindu mind will continue to be haunted and tortured at the slightest glimpse of the classic pattern of Muslim dishonesty and betrayal.

Does Mr. Kawaja need any more reasons, any more examples, to explain why Hindus don't trust Muslims and why they appear to be angry at Muslims?

Astonishing US hypocrisy

aug 31st, 2008


Sceptics are advised to read a recent Financial Times report on the current Kashmir unrest from sunny California. Amy Louise Kazmin, whose naked eye is unable to detect any transgression in the Valley's Muslim leadership. The evil, she claims with a turn of Pecksniffian rectitude, lies with the BJP-driven Hindu 'rioters' of Jammu -- the travails of the displaced Hindu Pandit community are cast into limbo. Small wonder that Tom Bairstow, a New Statesman hand in the magazine's long gone better days, dismissed his country's media as "the Fourth-rate Estate."

amarnath 'solution' a defeat for hindus

aug 31st, 2008

mohammedans have successfully established that the kashmir valley is their exclusive territory (dar ul islam) and that the dhimmi hindus are allowed to use a small plot of land temporarily under jaziya.

but i guess the poor hindus of jammu were getting tired of the privations of two months of agitation. the rest of us didn't do squat to help them. what should have mushroomed into a huge popular movement that would bring down the christist-controlled UPA didn't really materialize. and the christists of course did a nice diversionary move (opening a second front) by assassinating swami lakshmananda in orissa.

Irresolute UPA, resurgent terror

 

Second opinion: Sunita Vakil

It would not be an exaggeration to suggest that the state of security presently prevailing in our country is absolutely pathetic. With the ever-increasing ferocity of jihadi attacks, the powers that be can be expected to do little besides advise people to maintain "communal harmony". There is no denying the fact that terrorists have stepped up their anti-India activities in the past few years. Jihadis select sensitive and important targets with impunity. They damage life and property, instilling fear among the common people.

The evidence of the terrorist group's close coordination with elements on the Indian side of Kashmir was betrayed by the LeT's elaborate plans to welcome the 'Muzaffarabad Chalo' march. While a large section of the media projected the march, led by pro-Pakistani Kashmiri leaders, as a 'spontaneous protest', the LeT was clearly preparing for such an event. The group's members, workers and supporters had gathered near the Line of Control in thousands and were chanting, "Sabeeluna, sabeeluna; al-jihad, al-jihad" (Our path, our path; al-jihad, al-jihad) and "Kashmirioun say rishta kya? La ilahe il allah" (Our connection with Kashmiris: There is no god but allah). While Geelani said "India cannot crush the freedom movement of Kashmiris", Umar Farooq said the "relationship of bullet and hatred with India will continue".

Sarah Palin - Who?

That may be your reaction as it was mine - but the truth is that the giant sucking sound you hear is Barrack Hussein's campaign flushing down the toilet

Palin is a good pick because
  1. Her inexperience cannot be criticized - because if Barrack Hussein does that, his own inexperience shows up all the more
  2. The Bubba's will love her Christo-nut, anti-abortion ways. I am not a Christist fan - but I will take their votes if it means beating Barrack Hussein
  3. She will clean-up Hillary voters who feel cheated by the Obama campaign. I cannot over-emphasize this enough - swing states like Ohio and Pennsylvania have two key voter categories - white males (who were always with McCain) and single / soccer moms - who will now gravitate to Palin.
The risk is that she may bomb and end-up being a second Dan Quayle, which will sink McCain.

Does not matter to India - Republicans and Democrats are both cut from the same cloth for India. It's just I do not want to see that fake Barrack Hussein win

 IMC-USA expresses alarm at anti-Christian violence in Orissa; demands the State and Central governments to act immediately

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
28 August 2008

Indian Muslim Council-USA (IMC-USA), an advocacy group working toward safeguarding India's pluralist and tolerant ethos, denounces in the strongest terms, the ongoing massacre of Christians and the killing of the Hindutva leader in the Indian state of Orissa.

According to news reports, dozens of Christians have been killed, hundreds injured and many torched alive by mercenaries belonging to Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP), Bajrang Dal and other Hindu supremacist groups. Reports from the ground also indicate that hundreds of churches have been destroyed and thousands of Christians had to flee into the jungle to avoid massacre.

"This is nothing but a repeat of the 2002 Gujarat carnage, only this time the target is the Christian minority" said IMC-USA President Mr. Rasheed Ahmed, commenting on the violence. "If the state government, which is in alliance with the BJP, cannot maintain law and order and save the lives and property of its citizens, the Central government should impose president's rule and send the armed forces to stop the pogroms." he further added.

The latest violence against the Christians started after the killing of VHP leader Swami Laxmanananda Saraswati and four others by suspected Maoists. Rasheed Ahmed, deplored the incident saying: "Killing is a heinous crime irrespective of who the victim or perpetrator is". Laxmanananda Saraswati was at the forefront of anti-Christian campaigns and was reported to be behind the widespread destruction of properties during the 'Black Christmas' in 2007.

Orchestrated pogroms against religious minorities by Hindu nationalist groups have become a regular feature of Indian politics in recent years. Often these pogroms occur in Hindu nationalist (BJP) ruled states which extend police protection and impunity to the rampaging Hindutva activists perpetrating the violence.

Indian Muslim Council-USA is the largest advocacy organization of Indian Muslims in the United States with 10 chapters across the nation.

---------- Forwarded message ----------
From: E Maxwell



I had looked upon your blog for the first time, as an avid student and explorer of both South Asian, i.e. Hindu, Buddhist, Sikh, Jainist cultures and of Islamic cultures in addition.  A lot of it comes from my interest as a zionist supporter of israel, (my paternal grandparents were holocaust survivors and contributed to my strong jewish heritage), and subsequent interest to learn about the clashing cultures in the middle east and nearby areas that affect it.  I noticed your blog had numerous stories and articles comparing the situation and advancement of religious groups in India and was interested in additional perspective.

I noticed you said that in all areas of India where muslims are the majority,  living standards are subpar and the people are backward.  Is that a recent phenomenon or has it always been that way ever since muslims were in India at all?  Would you say it's gotten better of worse as the years progressed?

And perhaps more importantly, is there still some degree of inter religious harmony and peace left in places like Hyderabad where muslim populations are significant?  Are muslims in Hyderabad mostly willing to cooperate with police and authority figures and make sacrifices when necessary to provide security for Hindu neighbors?  And do muslim separatist groups in Hyderabad like Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen, the Hyderabad equivalent of Kashmir jiahdists, still hold sway over Muslims in both the Old and New City? 


It's especially odd since at least in modern India there was a tradition of muslims becoming intellectually and culturally advanced in many of the modern day cities.  I mean, in Bijapur, for instance, the rulers for many years were the Adil Shah monarchs who though were aggressive expansionists were also enthusiastic patrons of higher culture and interreligous harmony.  Same for Hyderabad, which was founded by Mohammad Quli Qutb Shah, from the Qutb Shah dynasty.  he and his successors were known for being great artists and poets who treated Hindus and Muslims as equals, (not as dhimmis or 2nd class citizens) and encouraged artistic achievement to flourish in Hyderabad.  It seems today the legacy of intellectual figures among India's muslims is gone replaced by fundamentalism and absence of any culture outside of islam.

And of course Jammu and Kashmir, now hopelessly lost to jihadis, was once ruled by open-minded and culturally advanced rulers as well.  But any legacy in Kashmir other than violent jihad and cleansing of hindus is clearly gone forever.

Maybe it's the legacy of rulers of these cities in most recent times, like the Nizam SHahs of Hyderabad in the 1700s, who stopped this cultural and civilizational advancement of muslims in India.  Maybe it's due to Middle Eastern influence like Saudi and Egyptian funded mosques leading to a revival of religious nationalism.

Or maybe it's not as severe as it seems; maybe there are large numbers of muslims who are working for modernization, increased prosperity and religious acceptance.  I know in Hyderabad, for example, 30 percent of Muslims live in the New City and they have much more in common with Hindus there than with groups like Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen.  The same for Bijapur, Delhi, Bombay and other cities.

What would you say about the religious and cultural clashes in India?  Is there reason to be optimistic or not really?

> Maoist color to the gruesome murder of Swamijee Laxanananda Saraswati
> at his ashram in Jalasapata in Orissa. For having utterly failed to
> give adequate security to Swamijee in the face of repeated attack and

> on the 9th August 2008 attended by many Christian militants
> representing NGOs and persons like Nakul Nayak the ex-Member of
> Parliament and Krishna Padseth the ex- Chairman of the Block from

> the district and state authorities along with copies to individual
> targets including Swamijee. On 22nd August Swamijee appealed the
> District magistrate to enhance his personal security. The news that
> his life is in danger has been broadcast by the media in the morning

PRESS RELEASE

August 17, 2008

$1 Million Endowment at UMass Dartmouth to Leverage Super Accelerated
Learning Techniques from Vedic Traditions for 21st Century Education

On Friday, August 15, as Indian students and community celebrated
India's independence day UMass Dartmouth announced that the Three Rs
Foundation has pledged $1 million to support the university's Center
for Indic Studies to initiate an innovative educational pedagogy
rooted in India's Vedic traditions. The donation will support the
Center's mission to connect the university, region and Commonwealth to
India's growing economy and world influence.

The announcement made with a celebration of India Independence Day
and featured presentations by students from India, and a guest speech
from Dr. Subramanian Swamy, visiting Harvard Professor and President
of Janata Party in India. "Our university, our students, and our
region are enriched by experiencing diverse cultures,'' Chancellor
MacCormack said. "The history, art, music and religion of India hold
important lessons for all of us as we strive to be better citizens of
our own community and the world. On behalf of UMass Dartmouth, I thank
the Three Rs Foundation for its exemplary generosity." Pandit
Ramadheen Ramsamooj, Director of Three Rs Foundation, said, "We are
excited to be part of this educational initiative that will allow
UMass Dartmouth students to learn about India at a time when the
information super highway and global economy are creating important
East-West connections. Among our highest priorities is to develop
innovative teaching strategies, rooted in Indian culture." The Three
Rs Foundation is the lead sponsor of the Super Accelerated Learning
Theory (SALT), a school model that emphasizes whole brain education.
Preceding the announcement, the Board of Governors of the Center for
Indic Studies unanimously approved the Memorandum of Understanding
with Three Rs Foundation.

The Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Center, Mr. Rajiv
Malhotra, said that the accelerated learning movements across USA
regard Georgi Lozanov, a Bulgarian educator and neuroscientist, as
their founding father. What is seldom considered is that Lozanov had
studied traditional Vedic learning systems in India in the 1960s under
UNESCO programs, to figure out how Vedic pandits were able to memorize
and impeccably recite tens of thousands of verses. Malhotra said,
"Today, the Three R's Foundation is reviving that learning system
from its source, and creating a program which could be a breakthrough
even beyond Lozanov's. This deserves all our encouragement and
support."

Mr. Braham Agarwal from Orlando, Fl, the General Secretary of Indic
Governing Board agreed saying, "this is a good beginning for the
Center." The Center for Indic Studies is planning several major
academic and scholarly initiatives in the coming years. In its Board
of Governors meeting, Dr. William Hogan suggested including graduate
education as part of the Three Rs Foundation's agenda in Indic
Studies. He agreed with the Board Chairman's suggestion to
distinguish Indic Studies from South Asian Studies, the latter being
adopted by many US universities for general area study that handicaps
them from getting into deeper understanding of Indic traditions and
values.

"An endowment of this size to bridge ancient civilization of India to
the most modern civilization of United States through education is a
most powerful statement to society,'' said Dr. Bal Ram Singh, director
of the Center of Indic Studies. "I am thrilled at this opportunity and
look forward to facilitating the engagement of my colleagues in this
educational mission."

With more than one billion people, India represents over 15 percent
of the world's population. Only China has a larger population. India's
median age is 25, one of the youngest among large economies. India and
the United States are the two largest democracies in the world. With
an average GDP growth of 7 percent over the last decade, India is one
of the fastest growing economies in the world. It is leveraging its
large number of well-educated and English-speaking people to become a
major exporter of software services and software workers. According
the U.S. Census Bureau India also now ranks 4th in Massachusetts as a
nation of origin of foreign born residents in 2006 with 40,000
residents of Massachusetts. In 2000, India ranked 9th, and in 1990 did
not rank in the top 10. India is the top country of origin for
international students on the UMass Dartmouth campus. This fall there
will be approximately 150 students from India on the campus.

The Center for Indic Studies was established in 2001 to disseminate
understanding of issues relating to the arts, philosophy, culture,
societal values, and customs of India. For more information, visit

. UMass Dartmouth is located in North Dartmouth on the South Coast of
Massachusetts. Established in 1895 and located on its current site
since 1964, the university offers more than 60 undergraduate,
master's, and doctoral degree programs to 9,000 students. Its $21

Fwd: Infallible doctrines

Re:
 
"The communal tension began after Swami Laxmananand Saraswati, a member of VHP's central advisory committee, and four others were murdered by suspected Naxals in Kandhamal district.....etc.etc.

"In one of the worst attacks, a Christian woman died and a priest was severely burnt when a mob set fire to an orphanage run by Christian missionaries in Bargarh district on Monday.

The incident again brought shame to the state."

*********************************************************************************************************

Infallible doctrine 1 - Pagan Swami murdered with four other Pagans - probably an incident

                             Christians killed in riot - Shame! (on Pagans of course, you idiot)

**********************************************************************************************************

"Nine years ago, Australian missionary Graham Staines and his two young sons were burnt alive by a Hindu mob in Keonjhar district."

************************************************************************************************************

Infallible doctrine 2 - Indian Tribals are all "non-Hindu animists" when being baptised as Christians.  If they misbehave (see above), why, in that case they may be christened afresh as Hindus.

Jammu is treated like a pariah, because we are patriots'

August 27, 2008
The agitation in Jammu over revocation of the allotment of land to the Shri Amarnath Shrine Board has taken an unprecedented turn. The only similar mass upsurge was during the Praja Parishad movement in 1952 to end the two dual constitutional provisions (thanks to Article 370) in Jammu and Kashmir that allowed two flags, a separate head of the state and separate laws.

The Bharatiya Janata Party has been supporting the agitation and the Congress's local leaders too have expressed their support for fear of losing Hindu votes. The agitation has seen small children with their mothers and grandmothers coming out on the roads with the tricolour in their hands and demanding that the land be given back to the SASB.

Leela Karan Sharma, 68, a senior advocate of the Jammu and Kashmir high court for 41 years, has been active in every Hindu religious organisation including the Dogra Brahmin Pratinidhi Sabha as its vice-president. He emerged on the national stage as president of the Shri Amarnath Yatra Sangharsh Samiti, which is leading the mass movement in Jammu for the last two months. His day begins at 6 in the morning and ends past midnight.
