Why Hindus don’t have voice? Written By: Kamlesh Chauhan Copyright@2010

It’s sad when Hindus were targeted by non Hindus in Kashmir India, World stayed silent.
Before 1984, Kashmir a beautiful Valley were the most prosperous part of India. Kashmiris in India were very secular mind people as Satish Ganjoo has written in his book “The Truth is that secular minded people of Kashmir of their own free will shared the same faith in the principle of Kashmir of their own free will in the principles of secularism and democracy that India had to offer an against the fundamentalist two-nation (Hindu and Muslim) Principle on which Pakistan was founded.”

I went through lot of sleepless nights to question myself who I am? What is my purpose in my life? Why it become an issue when I call myself Hindu upon asking what religion I follow? Do I really dislike non- Hindus?
As a History student I have learned, Hindus been targeted everywhere in the world not only today but even a centuries ago. Why? Are they Coward or they are just too reliant on their God? Hindus been criticized for saluting Sun, Moon, Stars, Earth which are responsible to give life, light to Earth life. The Animism the oldest religion in that faith people has worshipped spirits. Spirits become God. Hinduism, Zoroastrianism and Shinto are very ancient religions of course Judaism, Buddhism, Confucianism and Daoism.Hindus all over the world being called names by calling them slave mentality. In many parts of the world Hindu God and Goddess being portrayed as nude or painted either on thongs, cigarettes, skate board or hamburgers. I do have to admire my Indian Hindus they protested peacefully.

Non- Hindus are Part of India since Indians thrive on Secularism. Many Indian Muslims have made Progress and made a name for themselves not as Muslim but as Indians. So I have also learned to respect all religions. My confusion come when Danish Paper created a Cartoon, Our Muslims brethren all over the world retaliated with violence world wide. I do think Free Speech should be balanced without hurting any religion sentiments. Why this rule does not apply to Hindus?

If we look at Indian History books and the knowledge of our modern youth who firm believe in secular political system are also ignorant about the massacre of Hindus a centuries ago. The massacre and Slaughter of Hindus has been going on since the raids of Ghazani and Gori Till today. Our Indian whether it’s BJP or Congress they want our youth to be ignorant so we can have peaceful society. Demolished of Babari Mosque labeled Hindus as intolerant But when Thousands of temples was destroyed in India why world was not notified? Mahmud Ghazani a son of Slave Turk attacked Somnath Mandir many times, destroyed many Hindus idols with his own hand killed Hindus with extreme brutalities “The Army Spilt so much blood that the water of that river was so full and that stream so abundantly stained with gore, that it could not be used for purification and was forbidden to drinkers” (History)

Before Islam, most Rajput Kings fought battles without involving their families and common people. War of Sparta should remind when Greek was bullied by Iran, women and common people were left behind. Does that mean Hindus are coward?
When Hindus were massacred in Pakistan, even in Kashmir part of India. Hindus didn’t retaliate and demanded from their own government to Protect Hindu is Kashmir? Why? Have we lost our voice?

Well, religion should not be mixed with Politics and Politicians’ are not wise men. Then who will be defenders of Hindus? Who can save Hinduism? Why Hinduism should not be saved? Why People are ashamed to be called themselves Hindus? If Christians can take special pride to be Christians. Muslims can Proud to be Muslims then why Hindus can’t be proud to be Hindus?

In the end I will say religion is for personal guidance. Religion should not be the cause of distribution of lands. I repeat once again Hinduism, Zoroastrian and Shinto are very ancient religions as well as Judaism, Buddhism, Confucianism and Daoism. We all can live peacefully together under one roof under one umbrella without playing Superiority match for sake of our own selfish reasons. General Public wants peace.

Note: Please let’s not have fight over religion on this Topic. I request people not to create fight or make personal attack on each other. Let’s have debates, discussion but maintained the respect for each other. Let’s discuss the history peacefully to educate the world. OM Shanti Shanti.

What 4th of July, 2010 means to America and India.

Written By: Kamlesh Chauhan

Copy Right @Chauhan 4th of July 2010

Some may be wondering 4th of July, 2010 America Independence has to do with India.

India and America two Independent nations have largest democracy while both are facing Dilemma of terrorism and hard core extremists where terrorists are trying to devastate two nations.

America and India take exceptional Pride in Diversity however terrorists want to play and divide and rule game in the name of freedom, race and religion. One needs to questions the mind of terrorists and misguided youths. Do they really know what freedom means?

Freedom is earned from life and learns to co-exist with others. Freedom means one has privilege to live free without killing, destroying temples, following rules and law the nation one is adopted, Born or living.

I came in this country as young bride as my parents arranged my marriage. I thank God million time that he gave me a birth in India and a chance to grow up in America. I have best of the two worlds. My mother land taught me if you live in Rome do as Roman do and follow the rules and regulation of the Land we live on. Respect the nation who gave you the freedom and opportunity to be who you are. My Adopted land America taught me there is no shame to earn money as a sweeper, as a shopkeeper or a President of the Company .Freedom is a responsibility to hold the freedom to respect others.

4th of July is message to both America and India don’t let your fear give terrorists a Victory? Don’t stop living and change your life style. As an American as an Indian or as human you want to travel anywhere in the world you should do it. If Terrorists are not afraid of killing why we should be afraid of traveling or visiting any religious place?

India should learn from America after 9/11 none of the terrorists’ efforts been successful in America. Well Trained security been enforced in order. Same thing India has to learn and do. Indians should not be afraid to live in Kashmir. Kashmir is Integral part of India. Don’t even compromise for an inch of your land. Don’t compromise your freedom with terrorists who are trying to scare you to visit your most beautiful shrine Amarnath. Let them burn Indian Flag as many time as they want too. America Flags been burned in many corner of the world. Put your National Flag every corner of Jammu and Kashmir. Educate USA that Kashmir is not Palestine. Kashmir belongs to India. USA need to recognize Kashmir need peace and peace is only possible with the existence of Indians in Kashmir.

Let’s Celebrate 4th of July, 2010 make a memorable day. Let’s say God Bless America. God Bless India. May God protect us. Extremists want to destroy our freedom with fears.
