Teesta Gets Suitably Rewarded by Congress

The Congress lead UPA government has rewarded Teesta Setlavad by clearing her name for a 2nd term in the HRD Ministry’s Education panel.  The panel is the highest body for advising Central and State government on matters relating to Education.

http://www.scribd.com/dharmanext/d/94699808-Teesta-Setalvad-to-advise-Government-on-Education-HRD-Ministry

Teesta is known for her rabid anti-Hindu hate mongering. She has also been caught lying and forging documents submitted to the court in the riots cases in Gujarath. She was also part of the drafting committee of the now infamous “Communal Violence Bill”.

Till now, we have read in our school history books that Hindu society has been plagued with problems from times immemorial, that this nation lost to every other invader,  that the Moghal rule was a benevolent rule and added value to our culture except for a few exceptions, that Shivaji was a small chieftain, that Guru Teg Bahadur was a dacoit, that Bhagat Singh and other revolutionaries were terrorists, that India was never a nation and now

…one more chapter would be added that the Gujarathi Hindus and the Gujarath riots are a symbol of an intolerant Hindu society on a hapless minority.

Her credibility as an educationist has to be questioned and the motives of the Congress exposed.

    The daughter of Atul and Seeta Setalvad (Gujarati Hindus) is married to Javed Anand. She has converted to Islam but conveniently uses her Hindu name (A segue here: if she is such an avid leftist then religion should not mean anything to her; opiate of the masses and all. So why did she become a Muslim – makes you wonder doesn’t it?).

    She is Anti Hindurastra. We all have to be aware of her and oppose her representation in any of the nation development decesions.

    Jai Hind.

    Rocky, these people know what they are doing!Murali manohar joshi did what? He wanted to include astrology as a subject in curriculum!The very name ‘Hindu’ was given by Iranians, whose language does not have the consonant ‘c’ or ‘s’. So they called all those living east of Sindhu (Indus) river as Hindu. India is derived from the English version of the same river ‘Indus’.So the truth is all those living east of Indus river is Hindu! The term is a geographical indicator. There is no religion called Hindu! You are a vaishnavite/Saivite/Bhuddist/Jainist/Other local deities/Muslims /Christians/jews…and on and on . Since the word ‘Hindu’ is a geographical indicator the customs and faith of all the religions listed above should be respected.If not for Michael Witzel these Manuvadis would have altered the syllabus in US on Hindu religion.

      The Indian constitution includes Vaishnavaites, Saivites, Budhists, Jains, Sikhs and other deities and forms of worship born in Bharat as Hindus. The Muslims, Christians are not called as Hindu. The core culture of Bharat is Hindu and that is the reason for the unique encompassing culture of Bharat.

      The Muslims and Christians can well learn from the Jews and Parsis of Bharat who have shone like beacons of light, living an exemplary life, being proud of this heritage and at the same time practising their religion without expansionist motives. Even though the Jews share a similar history as that of Muslims and Christians, they have shown that the religion can be sublimated to align to the culture and heritage of the land that they live in.

      When Islam and Christianity learn to co-exist with the other communities and give up their expansionist tendency in Bharat as well as across the world, only then the problems would cease. Recent case in point is attacks on Buddhists by Muslims in Myanmar.

    Rocky,

    No matter how much liars like you spin things around, fact remains that Sivaji and Chandragupta were Indian kings who lived for Indian people and Akbar an invader.

    No matter how much pseudo composite culture mythologists like you present negationism, fact remains that Islam and Christianity never assimilated in India and remain antagonistic to native Indian systems – the Hindu systems. They continue to break the country, from within and without, and there is too much of data for you to hide on this. And if someone is trying to hide such data, by that very virtue he remains dishonest.

    No matter how much anti-Hindus in disguise like you try to mix things up, fact remains that Hindu is the name of collective native Indian civlizational systems – and not a single urban or tribal tradition.

    No matter how much people like you whine about it, fact remains that HIndutva remains the one single patriotic and native Indian movement while composite culture mythologists are both traitors to the country and frauds on the world.

    Well likeanyone….., I do hope you are able to liberate your mind from the grip of pseudo-hindu propaganda.

    If Teesta Setalvad is not qualified for the post then there should be objections. Otherwise I see nothing wrong. In fact, people like Teesta Setalvad who campaigned against powerful Modi and his violent supporters at considerable risk to their lives should be praised. In fact in any society whistle-blowers and activists are disliked.

    In the US also, several decades ago, those whites who claimed for power to blacks were condemned as traitors to the society. In fact, Abraham Lincoln was shot dead. Similarly some zealots with a mind-set not very different from yours, killed Mahatma Gandhi because he saw Muslims with the same compassion that he looked at his Hindu brethren.

    In fact, the author of this blog has conveniently twisted facts to support his pseudo-hindu agenda.

    1. I have myself studied history in Indian schools. In fact every history book teaches us that while rulers like Akbar were indeed benevolent Mughal rulers, others like Aurangzeb were fanatics and criminals (may be the Muslim version of Narendra Modi-types in the previous centuries).

    So if the author says that all history books call Mughal rule a benevolent one, he is certainly not true.

    As for Shivaji, he was certainly not an emperor like Chandragupta or like Akbar.

    The author forgets that Indian culture is like a river and every civilisation has added some value to the confluence of Indian culture. The Mughals, the Zoroastrians, The Christians, The Jews in Kochi have all added to the unique mix of Indian civilisation and culture.

    All right thinking Hindus and Indians should stop this attempt of pseudo-Hindu organisations to simply paint ‘Indian culture’ as the ‘ancient Hindu culture (as if such a homogenous, coherent culture was a strong reality in the India of several centuries back)’.

    Indian culture includes besides what the author calls ‘Hindu culture’, other cultures such as ‘tribal culture and traditions’, other religious cultures, ‘dravidian traditions’ etc.

    So Mr. Arisebharat, please broaden your vision and mind-set and come out of the ‘krishi pradhan desh and go pradhan krishi’ mindset.

    I am not asking you to ape the west and practice all the extremities of drugs, sex or alcohol which has become rampant in some parts of the west. I am asking you to be open and liberal in your mindset to accept what is good in different traditions and cultures. That alone is the true Hindu mindset in the globalised world of 21st century, in my opinion.

      As for Shivaji, he was certainly not an emperor like Chandragupta or like Akbar.

      There is some ancient wisdom in India. That wealth and power are not the reasons why we admire people. Those most admired in India are beggers, Shiva and the eternal Bikkhu, the Buddha and that “half naked Indian fakir” called Gandhi.
      So indeed we do not admire Shivaji because he was an emperor. But because he defended India, and much more importantly he is a guru of a special kind. He inspired the hindus with the realization that the Hindus need to become politically organized and conscious. And he established the Hindu Pad Padshahi. And that is why he is great. Not because he had so many horses and elephants and dancing girls in his court.

      Chandragupta is also admired for such reasons. That he created an empire to protect and build the hindu sanskriti.

      Now Akbar surely we dont admire for these reasons. He could be admired like any other tycoon like Donald Trump. He plundered, raped and built great monuments. Surely he can be admired like Gengis Khan for such things and also despised for the horrible genocides that he committed.

      —-
      All right thinking Hindus and Indians should stop this attempt of pseudo-Hindu organisations to simply paint ‘Indian culture’ as the ‘ancient Hindu culture (as if such a homogenous, coherent culture was a strong reality in the India of several centuries back)’.

      ha ha ha.
      It is possible to inform those who are blind by misfortune. But surely not those who deliberately choose to be blind.

      It is only the monotheists and other monomaniacs inspired by west asian imperialist madness who imagine coherence is necessarily associated with homogeneity.

      And if indeed you have any doubts about the strength of ancient Hindu culture, you can possibly do some reading about the question. There is enough literature all over the web and in any moderately equipped library about the depth and breadth influence of Hindu culture on the world, over a period of several thousands of years.

      And surely such “right” thinking secularists find it so offensive that Hindus have a history. The momin always have attempted to erase both the present and the past of the kafirs. Never mind. You only describe your own “mindset” not that of the Hindus in your so generous advice.


      If Teesta Setalvad is not qualified for the post then there should be objections. Otherwise I see nothing wrong. In fact, people like Teesta Setalvad who campaigned against powerful Modi and his violent supporters at considerable risk to their lives should be praised. In fact in any society whistle-blowers and activists are disliked.

      Maybe you entirely missed the point. Teesta is being opposed because she is commiting fraud and perjury. And she is supported by the powerful and is foisting frauds on the weak. That is the summary of the opposition to Teesta. I suppose this is sufficient qualification to go to prison in any dispensation. Opposition to Teesta is really the whistle blowing. And you are supporting the oppressive power against the whistle blower.

      In the US also, several decades ago, those whites who claimed for power to blacks were condemned as traitors to the society. In fact, Abraham Lincoln was shot dead. Similarly some zealots with a mind-set not very different from yours, killed Mahatma Gandhi because he saw Muslims with the same compassion that he looked at his Hindu brethren.

      How funny. You also inform us that India is a confluence of several rivers. I can only imagine that there was a small stream to start with and then several others mighty streams such as Mahmud of Ghazni, Mahmud of Ghaur, Allauddin Khilji, Taimur, Babur, Aurangazeb, Robert Clive, Dupliex, Bussey, Vasco Da Gama and other wise men joined later in benevolence, peace and magnanimity to share the benefits of their wisdom with this little river of Indian life.

      Only some pseudo hindus opposed this great confluence so much as to murder Gandhi because he was an advocate of this confluence.

      Have you some idea what happened to this confluence in 1947. Did this great river of confluence split up or is it still united. Who were the people that split it up. Was it the wise men that created this “confluence” or the pseudo hindus. Did these Pseudo Hindus oppose this split up or did they advocate its unity.

      If indeed pseudo hindus are guilty for the killing of Gandhi, who then is responsible for the murder of millions, the raping of millions and the expulsion of tens of millions in less than two months. The most efficient genocide ever committed by human hand. Surely not the pseudo hindus.
      Hitler took more than a decade to murder his six million jews of Europe. The wise men contributing to the confluence in India committed the same feat in two months. I suppose this is part of the benevolent confluence we must celebrate in addition to the murder of unnumbered hundreds of millions over the past thousand years.

      So Mr. Arisebharat, please broaden your vision and mind-set and come out of the ‘krishi pradhan desh and go pradhan krishi’ mindset.

      ha ha ha. This takes the cake. ha ha ha.
      come out of the krishi pradhan desh ha ha ha. And this is broadening the “mindset” ha ha ha.
      How about advice from a true hindu. Please open your eyes idiot. This is called the environmental revolution. Having destroyed two thirds of the earth in the “broadened” capitalist / communist / scientific / industrial mind set, you should wake up atleast now. Your lunacy is destroying the planet.
      And the only way, literally the only way to survive let alone prosper, is to understand Krishi and Gau pradhanyata.
      This is Hindutva. The philosophy for the salvation of human kind.

      Surely the hindu will rise to realize the enormous perfidy of your confluence ideology. Whatever foul names you confluence jokers wish to call us. That never hurt. What always hurt was the disunity of the hindu. And we have been working on that weakness since the days of Chhatrapati Shivaji. This confluence joke surely has to be dealt with. Not merely by the pseudo hindu but also by all mature and enlightened societies all over the world. And surely the Hindu will lead the world out of hard earned experience and wisdom.

      Dear Rocky,

      1) It is ample clear that your knowledge about history begins and ends with the school text books, which are beautifully tailored for biased views. This is the very reason why the author of this blog raised concerns of Teesta & her ilk becoming part of the panel in HRD Education Ministry and get a full hand of history to distort so as to suit her communal agenda.

      2) Your calling of Indian culture as ‘tribal culture and ‘dravidian traditions’ reflects your primitive knowledge that you gained from British school of thought on Indian culture. This is exactly the danger that the author is concerned about that the children of next generation only view India through the eyes of British-taught history and education.

      So, I advise you to first start reading History beyond the text books of your generation and the present. Hope you are not a kid still 

      3) Like how you have known about Chandragupta (as emperor), please try to learn about Samartha Ramadasa & Shivaji also. I can help you with good books beyond academic text books. As a starting point, you can just google or get help from Wiki – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shivaji

      4) Going to the roots of the word *Indian*, etymologically please define what do you mean by *Indian* before even commenting on Indian culture or for that matter Hindu culture. What is the identity of this country *minus Hindus* for centuries? Please explain.

      5) Globalised world of 21st century has got nothing to do with anybody’s History either of India or of the World. We still require Passports in 21st Century to prove our identity and travel. By the way, is Teesta the face of Globalised world of 21st century????!!!!!! For the last one decade or so, she has achieved nothing but a hate persona, symbol of a verbal diatribe on television channels, venomous & vitriolic personality on whatever that matters to Narendra Modi *ONLY*. How can then, she become part of an Education panel where there can be only scholars of knowledge, peace & love?

      6) Your advise on not aping West is well taken though!

      The relevant hymn FOR THIS 21st CENTURY is, “Aano Bhadra Krtavo Yantu Vishwatah” (Let noble thoughts come to us from every side). This is from RIG VEDA from your *tribal India* that you are talking about and NOT from Mughals nor from British. Had this hymn been taught in our text books, we would not have entered into debate of this kind my dear!!

      Dear Friend Rocky,

      I am writing from a Rocky Deccan city of Hyderabad.

      Hope the first monsoon showers are keeping you in good stead.

      Meanwhile, just curious to know are you from Lord Mcauley “gotra” or you have anything more to show as your credentials ?

      Finally, do you prefer hit-and-run writing or you would care to stop by here and respond/clarify to some of the rejoinders you have received here (Or are you busy searching for responses from you Lord McCauley Library !)

      That said, Have a good time, Monsoon has just arrived, now do not tell me the Confluence of the great west brings us Monsoon (Since its called south-west monsoon!!), Pardon my Joke but your piece was no less than one.
