Hindu Statement

Its not a Religious Statement, Its a Cultural Statement!!!

Akbar – The not so great.

We love to gloat about the great king Akbar, but are we sure that what we have studied in our “History” books is actually the truth or is it just a Story. I am a firm believer that history is written by the victors, so what we read most of the time as history surely has been tweaked in such a way as to promote some one or some ideology. Indian history is one of the best example of it.(ever heared of the Aryan Invasion Theory )

It has been agreed upon that Akbar was far more humane in his dealings with hindus, than the other Mughal rulers and other Islamic rulers in India. But when you read through the article you would be left wondering…. If this his how a “just” and “good” ruler treated hindus, what would be the state of affairs when the barbaric ones like Aurangzeb, were at the helm.

Below is the excerpts from an article about the not so great Akbar. Is shows the other side of history as it is taught in Indian schools.

Original Article : Akbar, The Great – A Tyrannical Monarch

History of India has witnessed innumerable invasions by hoards of armed marauders coming in from the west, perhaps attracted to the riches and wealth India then possessed. Apart from looting of wealth and destruction of property, the ‘aliens’ who remained, who committed grave atrocities against the local populace, and themselves, wallowing in immoral and unethical behaviour; except for one, it is said, Akbar.

Akbar’s Ancestors
Humayun, the son of Babar, was even more degenerate and cruel than his father. After repeated battles, Humayum captured his elder brother Kamran and subjected the latter to brutal torture. A detailed account is left by Humayun’s servant Jauhar and is quoted by Smith (p.20), which says, ” .. (Humayun) had little concerns for his brother’s sufferings .. One of the men was sitting on Kamran’s knees. He was pulled out of the tent and a lancet was thrust into his eyes .. Some lemon juice and salt was put into his eyes .. After sometime he was put on horseback.” One can imagine the cruelty and torture that Humayun was capable of inflicting on others when he subjected to his own brother to such atrocities. Humayun was also a slave to opium habit, engaged in excessive alcohol consumption and a lecherous degenarate when it came to women (Shelat, p.27). He is also known to have married a 14 year old Hamida Begum by force.

Who falls if India rises? – Tarun Vijay

Who falls if India rises?

If Team Rahul gets so much support— and with radiant faces like Jyotiraditya, Sachin and Jitendra Singh — it is able to deliver in national interest, should we remain adamant and say: Hey, you are bad till you join our party? They are Indians and have been voted to power by an Indian electorate.

Think what India needed at a time when external securitywas under strain and internally terrorism of various varieties continued unabated. Recession has put off lights in a hundred million homes and diplomacy has to show its best with confidence when China makes ADB stop an aid to Arunachal, Tamils are severely brutalized and Swat remains a difficult zone for Delhi, though Kathmandu has given signs of relief, which needs further restrengthening of the non-violent democratic forces.

We wanted a stable government, led by a party with a national outlook, which is necessarily free in taking decisions and without any dependence on the Left and other fringe elements. And an opposition that’s pan-national in its policies, and strong enough to stop any wrong by the treasury benches.
We got it.
Should it make us sad, unhappy and remorseful?

In any case the young, vibrant faces we see peopling parliament, with less caste consciousness and stronger on the merit lines, will do better than their predecessors and please don’t count if they make mistakes-they will shine even if they make some, which are bound to be there in the land of ‘angels’ who have nothing else to do except criticize and belittle others.
