Saffronization of Education - Part 3

Arun Shouri, in his famous book Eminent Historians, has quoted the West Bengal circular regarding Sudho-Ashudho and has given appalling examples of the leftist ‘objectivity’ and sense of history. The state government issued circulars to schools to delete portions from the text books which described any act of conversions, butchery, plunder and rapes by the Muslim rulers. The logic given was that these encourage communalism and hate against Muslims. The terms used were ‘Aushuddho’ – the text which depicted the history as it is and ‘Shuddho’ – delete or make corrections to the history of actual events!

A circular sent relating to textbooks for class ix, dated 28 April 1989, issued by West Bengal Secondary Board, and it carries a number ‘sy1/89/1’ says “all the West Bengal government recognized secondary school headmasters are being informed’ it begins, ‘ that in history textbooks recommended by this board for class ix the following amendments to the chapter on the medieval period have been decided after due discussions and review by experts’.

‘the authors and publishers of class ix history textbooks,’ it continues, ‘are being requested to incorporate the amendments if books published by them have these ‘aushuddho’ (impurities/errors) in all subsequent editions, and paste a corrigendum in books which have already been published. A copy of the book with the corrigendum should be deposited with the syllabus office’.

The accompanying pages contain two columns: aushuddho – and shuddho. We need to just glance through the changes to see the objective the progressive are trying to achieve through their ‘objective’, ‘rational’ & ‘secular’ approach to the writing to history.

Book: Bharat Katha, prepared by the Burdwan education society, techers enterprise, published by Sukhomoy Das:
Page 140: Aushuddho – “in Sindhudesh the Arabs did not describe Hindus as kafir. They had banned cow-slaughter”.
Shuddho – “delete, ‘they had banned cow-slaughter’”

Page 141: Aushuddho – “fourthly, using force to destroy Hindu temples was also an expression of aggression. Fifthly, forcibly marrying Hindu women and converting them to Islam before marriage was another way to propagate the fundamentalism of the ulema”
Shuddho – delete from “secondly… to Ulema”

Aushuddho – “the logical, philosophical, materialist mutazilla disappeared. On the one hand, the fundamentalist thinking based on the Quran and the badis…”
Shuddho – delete

Book: Bharatvarsher itihash, by Dr. Narendranath Bhattacharya, published by Chakravarty:
Page 89: Aushuddho – “Sultan Mahmud used force for widespread murder, loot, destruction and conversion”.
Shuddho – “there was widespread loot and destruction by Mahmud”. i.e., no reference to killing, no reference to forcible conversions.

Aushuddho – “he looted valuable worth 2 crore dirham from the Somnath temple and used the Shivling as a step leading up to the masjid in Ghazni”
Shuddho – “delete ‘and used the Shivling as a step…”

Page 112: Aushuddho – “Hindu-Muslim relation of the medieval ages constitute a very sensitive issue. The non-believers had to embrace Islam or death”
Shuddho – all matter on pages 112-13 to be deleted

Page 113: Aushuddho – “according to Islamic law non-Muslims will have to choose between death and Islam. Only the Hanafis allow non-Muslims to pay Jaziya in exchange for their lives”.
Shuddho – rewrite this as follows: “by paying Jaziya to Alauddin Khalji, Hindus could lead normal lives”. Moreover, all the subsequent sentences “quazi…”, “Taimur’s arrival in India…” to be deleted.

Aushuddho – “Mahmud was a believer in the rule of Islam whose core was either Islam or death”
Shuddho – delete.

Book: Itihasher Kahini, by Nalini Bhushan Dasgupta, published by B.B.Kumar:
Page 132: Aushuddho – “according to Todd [the famous chronicler of Rajasthan annals] the purpose behind Alauddin’s Chittor expedition was to secure Rana Rattan Singh’s beautiful wife, Padmini”.
Shuddho – delete

Page 154: Aushuddho – “as dictated by Islam, there were three options for non-Muslims: get yourself converted to Islam; pay Jaziya; accept death. In an Islamic state non-Muslims had to accept one of these three options.”
Shuddho – delete

Page 161: Aushuddho – “the early sultans were eager to expand the sway of Islam by forcibly converting Hindus into Islam”. Shuddho – delete.

Book: Bharuter Itihash, by P.Maiti, Sreedhar Prakashini:
Page 139: Aushuddho – “there was a sense of aristocratic superiority in the Purdah system. That is why upper-class Hindus adopted this system for upper-class Muslims. Another opinion has it that Purdha came into practice to save Hindu women from Muslims. Most probably, purdah came into vogue because of both factors”. Shuddho – delete.

The most extensive deletions are ordered in regard to the chapter on ‘Aurangzeb’s policy on religion’. Every allusion to what he actually did to the Hindus, to their temples, to the very leitmotif of his rule – to spread the sway of Islam – are directed to be excised from the book. He is to be presented as one who had an aversion – an ordinary sort of aversion, almost a secular one – to music and dancing, to the presence of prostitutes in the court, and that it is these things he banished.

Book: swadesho shobhyota, by Dr. PK Basu and SB Ghatak, abhinav prakashan:
Page 126: Aushuddho – “some people believe that Alauddin’s Mewar expedition was to get hold of Padmini, the wife of Rana Rattan Singh”. Shuddho – delete

Page 145: Aushuddho – “apart from this, because Islam used extreme, inhuman means to establish itself in India, this became an obstacle for the coming together of Indian and Islamic cultures.”. shuddho – delete

Book: Bharat Katha, by G. Bhattacharya, Bulbul Prakashan
Page 40: Aushuddho – “Muslims used to take recourse to torture and inhuman means to force their religious beliefs and practices on Indians”. Shuddho – delete.

Page 41: Aushuddho – “the liberal, humane elements in Islam held our hope for oppressed Hindus”. Shuddho – the entire paragraph beginning with the “the caste system among Hindus… was attacked” is to be deleted. Instead write: there was no place for casteism in Islam. Understandably, the influence of Islam created an awakening among Hindus against caste discrimination. Lower caste oppressed Hindus embraced islam”.

Page 77: Aushuddho – “his main task was to oppress non-believers, especially Hindus”. Shuddho – this and the preceding sentence to be deleted.

Looking at all these changes convey us one single motto. That no forcible conversions, no massacres, no destruction of temples. Just that Hinduism had created an exploitative, casteist society. Islam was egalitarian. Hence the oppressed Hindus embraced Islam! Such cleansing act of our history has not just happened at West Bengal alone. There are innumerable examples across India in all the states for such changes with 'malicious'intentions.

The question is “are we Indians not privileged enough to know the true History of our nation?” Is it right that the ‘never-stepped-in-to-school’ ministers of this country change the history for minority appeasement? BJP has called for the eradication of such cheap practices and they are blamed for 'saffronizing' the education! Now if Saffronization is going to give us our ‘history’ as it is without changes, what is there to oppose it? Is it not good for our country?

Saffronization of Education...Part 2

Our ancestors have calculated ‘time’ better than anybody else in the world, without having any of the modern day computing assists and capabilities. The following is the list of time units as defined per our ‘Jyothisha’ sasthra.

60 kooshvaas – 1 tharpara (thathpara)
60 tharparas – 1 vinaadi
60 Vinaadia – 1 Naalika
60 Naalikas – 1 day

Mapping these to the modern day ‘English’ time units:

1 hour - 2-1/2 naalikas
1 naalika – 24 minutes

1 Vinaadi – 24 Seconds
1 tharpara – 6/15 of a second
1 kooshvaa – 1/150 of a second

It is clear that our Jyothisha people had the ability to calculate ‘Jaathakaas’ at a kooshvaa unit level without any of the modern day super computers.

Another anecdote from Srimad Bhagavatham, 3rd skandam, 11th Adhyaaya

“swasthe nare samaaseene yaavathspandhathi lochanam|
Thathra thrinshathmo baaga: thathpara: parikeerthitha: |
Tathparasya shathaanshasuthu dhrutisthiyabigiiyathe|| “

The time taken for blinking the eye lids once by a man who is in ‘swasthi’ (without any ailments) state is called as ‘Nimesha’.
1/30th of a Nimesha is called a ‘Tharpara (thathpara)
1/100th of a tharpara is called a ‘dhruti’

Such information is spread across our ‘knowledge’ treasures. It is ironical that there is nobody around who take pride in these and trying to see what our ancestors have ‘seen’ already. All these teach us one thing – that the modern day scientists are not inventing anything ‘new’ – we still are re-learning what our Bharatha desa already knew through those famed modern day scientists!

If such a knowledge is what Vedic Mathematics can transcend on our generations, what is there to be opposed? If this is what called as ‘saffronization’ by the pseudo-secularists, is it not good for us?

Think India think!

The Indian Main Stream Media

Some details about the Indian Main Stream Media will make our eyebrows curve! This would explain why BJP and its allies get such a stauch negative visibility and the Indira Congress & its RED allies gets a waiver from all their sins!

a) NDTV:

Funded by Gospels of Charity in Spain supports Communism. Recently it has developed a soft corner towards Pakistan because Pakistan President has allowed only this channel to be aired in Pakistan . Indian CEO Prannoy Roy is co-brother of Prakash Karat, Gen Secy of Communist party of India .


100% Funded by Southern Baptist Church with its branches in all over the world with HQ in US. The Church annually allocates 800 Million Dollars for Promotion of its channel. Its Indian Head is Rajdeep Sardesai and his wife Sagarika Ghosh.




Times Group is owned by Bennet & Coleman. 80% of the Funding is done by "WORLD CHRISTIAN COUNCIL, and balance 20% is equally shared by an Englishman and an Italian. The Italian ROBERTIO MINDO IS A CLOSE RELATIVE OF SONIA GANDHI.


Is run by an Australian, who is supported by St.Peters Pontificial Church Melbourne.


Owned by Birla Group, but hands have changed since Shobana Bhartiya took over. Presently it is working in Collobration with Times Group.

F) The Hindu:

A English Daily, started over 125 years has been recently taken over by N Ram who is relative to Maran Family and Tamil Nadu Chief Minister’s Karunanidhi

For sure these can brainwash the general Indian Public to their own tunes! It is time to think and think aloud!

Narendra Modi – The Savior (Final Part)

Comparing Gujarat with the rest of the States
The entire nation should thank people of Gujarat! They should learn from them – how to select a leader who will do well to their state, their country. On the contrary, I pity Tamil Nadu people – Jayalalitha’s second term at office was pretty good in comparison to any of the previous Dravidian government’s standards. She was hard on terrorists, eliminated criminals like the sandal-wood veerappan, got the state talk and practice rain water harvesting, punished the ‘programmed’ , corrupt government employees who went on strike for selfish reasons, handled the first two years draught with ‘war-foot’ measures, then the natural disasters of Tsunami and Floods in the next two years with elegance, streamlined electricity across the state, eradicated the lottery business, brought in some good schemas for temples, free bi-cycles for poor students, good focus on industry development and infrastructure development, still ended her term with a positive financial position. (The only black mark being her handling of the Sankaracharya case).

But all this didn’t help her winning her second term in succession – that is how people of Tamil Nadu are programmed – a ‘self-pity’ society, looking out for free color TVs, free lands, free gas stoves, and rice at Rs.2/kg, ignoring the bigger picture of Nationalism & growth, driven by groupism voted for Karunanidhi – for these two years, people have not seen anything on the growth path. Karunanidhi is busy bashing Hindus and Ram, giving focus to useless ‘cinema’ folks, busy watching their striptease dances, spending crores of rupees in his freebie schemes which only his party cadres benefit, helping and writing poems praising LTTE terrorists, giving re-birth to local goons and dadas, enacting bomb blasts with timer devises to kill his political enemies, making his kith & kin as ministers in state and central, making people like ‘radhika selvi’ (whose only qualification is that of a widow of a local goonda venkatesa pannaiar killed in encounter during Jayalalitha’s period) as an MP from his party and encouraging his party cadres to cut the threads of poor Brahmins.

It is better left unsaid about this old man’s ‘narcissistic’ behavior – every nook & corner of tamil nadu has banners of his face and his son stalin’s face.
They have not even spared the temple walls – the attached snap is just on the wall of the famous ‘kapaliswarar temple’ at Mylapore during a festival season – he just doesn’t care about Hindu’s sentiments! Will he dare to erect such a banner in walls of the Santhome church or the Thousand Lights Mosque? He is a media hailed, self proclaimed ‘pseudo- secularist’. Such are his plans given towards the growth of the state!

I took Tamil Nadu as an example – we can draw parallels to this if you study Andhra (during Chandrababu Naidu’s period and YSR’s period now), Karnataka, Bihar, West-bengal etc. BJP is described as ‘communal’ by the rest of the crowd in India. If you really compare the states ruled by BJP and others you would really know the difference – you will know who preaches communal strategy and caste in their states!

After getting a slap in their faces, now the coward media is still busy finding out who is loser among the Victorians. I have not seen this kind of stupidity elsewhere. The media is now busy finding answers for questions like ‘Is BJP a loser on the national level?’, ‘Is Rajnath singh upset?’, ‘Is Advani gone now that Modi has won?’. Boy-o-boy, where is the reality? The Gujarat elections are fought direct in contention between Indra Congress and BJP. And BJP has won fair and square! Modi is their CM! The election battles were fought between Modi and Sonia Gandhi. And Sonia Gandhi has been rejected by the Gujarat people. The winner is Modi and the loser is Sonia. That is it – so simple. Where is she hiding after all this? Why is she not coming forward to accept the defeat? Why is that she is always there to take the ownership for victories alone? If the petrol prices go up, it is PM to take the blame. If they are not hiked inspite of crude oil price raise, the credit is to Sonia! I mean why is the media not hunting for Sonia and Rahul after the election results? The agenda is nothing but the next programming of people’s mindset by media – that Sonia or Rahul never loses – they will only be accounted with wins! Give me a break!

I am happy and proud of Gujarat as a State and the people who elected Modi! They have taught the rest of the nation a lesson. A lesson that shows that ‘Gujarati’s’ still put Nationalism first and their Hindu pride is in tact! Do remember that Modi has earned considerable vote share in the Muslim community as well – otherwise such a landslide victory would not be possible! This shows that what the media has projected is not all true in Gujarat. Modi still plans for 5-1/2 crore people of Gujarat! He doesn’t have separate plans for uplifting Minorities. His Jyoti Gram Yojna is given for all – not for muslims alone. His Narmada schemes benefit the villages as a whole – not for minorities alone! He has openly pronounced that in his election rallies! Do we still believe that this is divisive politics?

And Modi gave back a slap to media in its face for his share – by announcing that ‘there cannot a son who is bigger than his mother’ – that he is never bigger than the BJP! That is the kind of commitment and transparency he lives for! Modi has made it very clear – that he was the CM and he will be the CM for ever – because for him CM means Common Man! That is what differentiates him from the barking crowd. What ever he does – it makes sense and it has a purpose! What ever he talks – it has a sense and purpose! We have not been fortunate to have such leaders often – Gujarat has that unique distinction of producing such leaders – Mahatma Gandhi, Sardar Vallabhai Patel to name some. We should cherish such leaders. We should support such leaders! We should ease their path so that they can take the country to the next level. Modi is honest; Modi has an unyielding integrity; Modi is plain, clean and simple! Modi has driven the Caste ghost out of Gujarat that is demonstrated by Hindu voting unanimously to BJP! He has already sent his lessons to the ‘religion’ ghost in Gujarat, which is demonstrated by the thumping majority given to him by people which include Muslims & Christians!

As a proud Indian, I say ‘Modi – is our Savior’!

Jai Hind!

Narendra Modi – The Savior (Part 3)

The television channels never interviewed any of the Hindu families that lost their livelihood during the Mumbai riots, Godhra carnage, Gujarat Riots or say the Sankat Morchan temple blast. They never bother to broadcast the plight of ‘Kashmiri Pandits’ who live as orphans in the refugee camps that lack basis sanitary needs for generations now! The proud Hindu community does not sit in a corner and cry for attention. Hindu’s are naturally programmed to come up from any such disaster – that is Hindu Pride. The only exemption to this will be Tamil Nadu from where I hail from – here the Dravidian parties have managed to ‘program’ all the Hindus to think like ‘beggars’ and each one’s life is dependent of the ‘freebies’ given by the government (See my previous posts during TN assembly elections). There is no ‘pride’ left in Hindus in Tamil Nadu – it is a pity!

Coming back to Gujarat, the Television channels never bothered to interview the remote villages that got ‘electricity’ with the ‘JYOTI GRAM YOJANA’ scheme, Villages that are irrigated with the Narmada water, the stoop city dwellers who received excellent infrastructure facilities, the elite business / industrial community who are enjoying the high tide with Modi governemnt’s stronghold on corruption – making it easy for Foreign investments etc. Modi does not give his hungry people ‘a fish’ but he taught them how to fish? – That is the critical difference! Modi has done it in full five years! Are they not the things that the Indira Congress has been promising every five years for the past 60 years?

The anti-incumbency factor is very hard to ignore in any elections! Here is a leader who has proved everyone wrong! The Main stream media or the opposition party could never claim about any scandals in the state or raise a voice on corruption during the elections! Modi is a ‘clean’ man! They cannot oppose to the ‘vibrant Gujarat’ theme or ‘Jetega Gujarat’ theme! Because Modi has proven to the people that good governance is indeed possible in a country like India! It is not a small achievement in any scale! Any media which is really focused on the national interest should project such things and question the rest of the leaders in the country - If Modi can, why cant you? But is that what you expect from our media?

Modi didn’t have everything easy. He cut the ‘free electricity’ to farmers and urged them to pay for it. He made them ‘think’ – what is better – 24 Hrs power supply or an irregular ‘false’ free power supply? The Gujarati farmers chose the 24Hrs power supply at a cost! Then the next natural ‘programmed’ Indian thing happened – some of them started looting power from the mains! Modi came very hard on them – he cut power supply for 1 lakh farmers found guilty of stealing electricity! There was no caste or religion barrier here. Those who stole got the punishment! Now the bad elements think more than once before committing any such things! No other politician in India has shown such detrimental administration capabilities in the past 60 years. Modi was not behind cheap vote bank politics. Giving national energy resources ‘free’ to anybody is a national crime! We have become immune to this fact – but Modi has shown the way forward. He has made his people ‘think’!.

Such enormous success didn’t blind Modi from his focus. Modi is still humble to the people, the party and the nation! After the victory he went and met Keshubhai patel to seek his blessings and to the sangh saadhus who openly campaigned against him in the elections! He doesn’t have a family – dedicated his life for the country – the quality which is very common across the RSS camp! His public meetings end with a proud chanting of ‘Bharat Mata ki – je’. Compare this with other parties’ meetings – they end with ‘Sonia matha ki Je; Rahul bhaiya ki je blah blah’. That is the difference – Country comes first; National spirit comes first to Modi – then the rest!
