Har Har Mahadev friends,
I dedicate this video post to lakhs of our Kashmiri Pandit and Kashmiri Sikh brothers and sisters, who have made such sacrifices for Dharma, Nation, Humanity, Society that, we tremble merely by remembering those!
It’s festival of Mahashivaratri today, Har Har Mahadev to all of you! Hearty greetings to your families on this occasion of Mahashivaratri!
I want to discuss a bit about sacrifices made by these Pandits which they made to convey importance of Mahashivaratri to our families, and to protect us all.
Along with this, I want to discuss about this much hyped topic of present, where in the name of freedom of expression, terrorists and their supporters like Afzal Guru, Yakub Menon, Umar Khalid, Anirab et al are being glorified. Those who say that Kashmir should be liberated are being glorified. I wanna talk on this topic. Lets start with this.
They say, ‘Liberate Kashmir’, ‘Only Kashmiris should have right to decide what should be future of Kashmir’. I absolutely agree with all of these people like – all separatists of JNU, JKLF, Yakub Menon, Afzal Guru, Kanhaiya Kumar, Sitaram Yechuri, Umar Khalid, Anirban, Arundhati Roy, and any other pseudo-intellectuals etc etc. who say that ‘Only Kashmiris should have right to decide what should be future of Kashmir’. This is one such topic where I support all these people.
But before we take this discussion forward, it’s important to know who is a ‘Kashmiri’? If I hijack your house by beating up and dragging out your house dwellers, do I become the owner of house? If yes, then those who are talking about separating Kashmir from India are the only actual Kashmiris. But if you look at history, facts, logically analysis, then they are nothing more than a gang of hijackers, invaders, goons and dacoits.
Even if you look at the origin of the term Kashmir, it was not given by these so-called Kashmiris. This word can be traced all the way back to the most ancient era of which we have documented history, where this region was called Kashmir after Rishi Kashyap. He is one of our celebrated Sapt-Rishis (sapt=7). He gave us the knowledge of doing Shiva bhakti (devotion/ worship). So Kashmir was named after Kashyap Rishi, and how can some goons even consider to have rights over a region, whose very name is after an ancestor of ours who is also a founder of our ideology.
There has been tremendous significance of Kashmir, which although we have forgotten, since it’s under the hold of goons today. But reality is that Kashmir’s significance for Hindus is as much as that of Kashi. The way Kashi’s temple is a major center of Shiva worship, similarly, the central source of entire Shiva worship ideology, is our Kashmir. Kashmir is the birth place of entire Shaivism ideology.
If you see the foundations of our culture, Kashmir in reality is not just geographically, but also intellectually, spiritually, historically the ‘head’ of India. And without the head, rest of the body has no significance.
Friends, until approximately 1339, Kashmir was benefiting entire nation, entire world through it’s intellectual capital. Kashmir like I said, was the foundation of Shaivism philosophy. The most ancient Sun-temple in world is found in Kashmir, the Martand Mandir. Yes, this is the very same Martand temple on which the actors and directors of Haider movie danced upon by erecting a statute of the Shaitan (Evil’s mythical personification) while wearing footwear. Same Haider movie in which they tried justifying why Army should be removed from Kashmir, why only the Kashmiri separatists and terrorists should have a right to decide for Kashmir’s future.
So despite of a few attacks, until 1339, Kashmir was totally a part of India. In 1339, a clever pervert named Shah Mir came to Kashmir. He is known to be an Islamic convert from a Kshatriya clan.
And let me tell you this one thing by deviating a bit from the topic, that most of those who convert to Islam are radicalized persons. They are frustrated with their present for some reason. And as an escape mechanism to vent out their frustrations, they accept a new belief system. And this happens in general and this is not just the case with Islam alone. And such converts are the most dangerous, most fanatic ones. They have many frustrations in their minds which they want to vent out in various ways. If you talk about ISIS, most of their terrorists are converts like this. ‘JihadiJon’ who has shown his perversion and psychotism by making so many beheading videos; all such are converted people.
If you look here also, Mauhamad Ali Jinnah’s ancestors were also Hindu until before one or two generations ago. But they converted and after converting, because there exist a hatred, the acts he committed, I don’t even need to mention about those.
Just take the case of Rohit Vemula. If we see the FB posts of Rohit Vemula, then up until 2011-12, he was a very positive, a very science loving boy, who was doing his PhD in Life-sciences in University of Hyderabad. And as soon as he got into the circles of Communist extremists at the end of 2012, his radicalization started. He switched his course from Life Sciences to Social Sciences, because less effort is required in Social Sciences, like there’s lesser lab work. And then gradually, when you see his FB posts, where he used to praise Indian Army, used to even praise NarendraModi, used to criticize media about why they are frantically after N Modi but silent on Assam riots, used to share jokes as well. You can observe he was very open minded, positive and vibrant boy. Then he started getting radicalized gradually. And this radicalization resulted in his working with SFI, where he experienced first hand the two-faced nature of communists. Then he got frustrated from them and joined Ambedkar Student Association. But the common thing he found in both these places was hatred towards mainstream Hindu society, and an urge to prove somehow that mainstream Hindus are the root of all social evils in India. That the mainstream Hindus are behind atrocities on backward sections of society. Such things were fed into him to such an extent through radicalization, that a person who was supporting Indian army not very long ago, went being deep into alcohol and smoking, and started supporting terrorists like Yakub Menon. And all this destroyed his very career, his scholarship got canceled. In the end he got so much frustrated that he committed suicide by writing that all these student unions look for their own selfish interests first and then anything else, and that he has now become an animal. This is a very sad tragedy from which we should learn.
Anyways, coming back to topic, ShahMir was a very clever and lowly person. He assassinated Kashmir’s king by deceit. Then attacked against the new ruler queen Kota Rani, and asked her to marry him. One more thing you will observe about these fanatic Jihadis, that they have habit of misbehaving with, raping, enslaving women of ‘other’ religions. You may see ISIS – they enslave and trade Yezidi, non-Muslim women. Even their chief commit numerous rapes. So this is an objective for them, because somewhere in their minds it has been fed by their Maulvis that doing this is a part of their religious duty to worship Allah. They believe that the more they capture and trade like property, the women of other religions, the more the virgins they will get in heaven after death. So this is one psychotic mindset of theirs, what else do I say about it!
So this ShahMir also tried to capture Kota Rani by marrying her. Kota Rani instead of marrying the jihadi psychopath, gifted her intestines to him by killing herself. After this, Shah Mir captured Kashmir, and started spreading Islam by force, deceit and every other way. That was such a version of Islam in which people had only two choices- either convert or die, and after killing you they will either enslave or rape your daughters, sisters, Mothers. So in this rampant manner from 1339 to 1413, lakhs of Pandits were killed, women were raped. Radical version of Islam which we can see in ISIS today was spread there this way.
After that between around 1506-1585, other rulers ruled there. Let me tell you about one thing that is commonly found in all Islamic rulers of history. After death of one ruler, and before crowning of the next king, there’s always an extremely bloody war. This is because according to the radical Islam which they follow ( which is totally different from APJ Abdul Kalam’s brand of Islam, in fact these radicals dont even consider APJ as a Muslim! ), they are allowed four wives, but limitless concubines. Thats why they keep as concubines the non-Muslim girls of those families of conquered regions which refuse to convert to Islam. That’s why you can observe in history that they used to maintain Harems, MeenaBazars etc. And all those children born in Harems whether legitimate or illegitimate are princes. And because, they have no concept of elder son, so after a generation, a political war starts and many of the times it gets converted to military war, and a new king is made after a lot of bloodshed. That’s why you will see that when Jahangir was to become king after Akbar, he rebelled against Akbar first of all. Similarly when Aurangzeb was to become King, he captured Shah Jahaan.
So this happens to be their mindset due to which rule is maintained for sometime and then succession happens through bloodshed. And yes, the common masses under their kingdom always exist in very tragic state. So after that, in between 1506-1585, Chak Jihadis came and performed a different kind of violence. And in every such violence, .. One more thing- that because in their version of radical Islam, one thing has been made very clear to them, that the gravest possible sin that can be committed is Idol worship. According to these radical Islamists, even if you are committing crimes like rape, murder or any higher or lower crime than these, their Allah will pardon you, but if you are indulged in idol-worship, then Allah won’t forgive you!
So that’s why, an Osama can be a hero for them. If you ask these radical Islamists if Osama Bin Laden is an evil terrorist, they will answer, that ‘We don’t know, hence we can’t say..’. Because it’ a sin for them to abuse another Muslim. You can find numerous fanatics who shy away from abusing Osamas. But yes, if a person is an idol worshiper, regardless of how so much noble and honest he or she is, for these, there cannot exist a bigger culprit! That’s why Mauhamad Ali Jinnah once said that regardless of Gandhi being a great person, even a murderous Muslim is closer to him than Gandhi, since only a Muslim can accompany him to heaven. So this is a part of their extremist ideology.
That’s why you will see that towards Idol-worshipers (Hindus), they have intense hatred and that’s why even though Islam originated in Mecca, which is in West Asia, they reached India by covering all the regions in between. This in itself is a question mark that when you were born there, why the hell were you repeatedly coming here with sword to attack Hindus? It has another reason which is called as ‘Ghazwa-e-hind’ prophecy promoted by these extremists, which we will discuss some other time. But basically, to destroy Idol-worshipers (Hindus here) is a shortcut gateway, a passport for them towards heaven. So no matter how much they fight among themselves, but it has always been a mission for these extremist islamists to destroy Hindu temples, to capture their women and rape them, to behead them.
So from this time onward, Kashmiri Hindu population started declining and the process of attacking Kashmiri Sikhs started right after that, we will discuss about this as well. So Kashmiri Hindus were given the choice that either you convert or else be killed. That’s why most of the Kashmiri Muslims today have their origins as being descendants of Kashmiri Hindus only. But over the period, they went through so much radicalization that now they refuse to even accept their roots. They even go to the extent of claiming their lineage directly from their Messenger. To which question arises that if you are from Messenger’s lineage, how did Kashmir become yours? Go there! To which they answer that although we are originally descendants of native Kashmiri Hindus, but we left their religion because they were wrong.
So this was the start of their radicalization. If you try and observe, you can see such tremendous hatred in their hearts against Hindus that it’s indescribable. So from 1506-1585, Chack Kings, well, not kings but Chack terrorist invaders had their dominance in the region. Like the way today ISIS has over Syria, some psycho Jihadis have over Somalia. Then after 1585, Mughals came and pushed out the Chacks from the region and established themselves. Till Akbar, situation was still somewhat okay. Although he was a big Jihadi himself and executed numerous massacres, but he was a diplomat. His strategy was, that if he can achieve his ends without violence, then he avoided the killings. So at many places through his diplomacy, like by marrying with Rajput daughters etc, he used to try and expand his dominance.
But his son Jahangir, was another extreme fanatic and drug addict. Not only did he rebelled against Akbar, he started a new wave of massacres there. After that untill 1753, when Afghans attacked Mughals, Kashmiri Pandits suffered a lot, lakhs of Kashmiri Pandits were killed. During Auranzeb’s reign, 500 Kashmiri Pandits rushed from Kashmir to Guru Teg Bahadur to inform him about atrocities being committed upon them, how they are being killed in large numbers, and how their women (these women are not very distant from us, among them many have been our own closely related Mothers, sisters from which we have descended) are being raped. Guru Teg Bahadur listened to them and raised his voice against their oppression. This resulted in Guru Teg Bahadur’s execution on Aurangzeb’s orders. Guru Teg Bahadur’s sacrifice was not only for the Sikhs, but also for Kashmiri Hindu brothers. And the purpose behind this sacrifice of his was, that Guru Teg Bahadur (shat-shat pranaam (hundreds of salute) _/\_ to him!), like the rest of the Sikh Gurus, used to consider fighting against tyranny and injustice as the main purpose of their life. So this sacrifice of Guru Teg Bahadur is a debt on us. Which we have not repayed yet. Because the reason behind his supreme sacrifice still exists even today.
Then after 1753, Afghans ruled under Ahmed Shah Abdali who was fanatic of highest order, and hence Kashmiris had to again suffer great oppression.
In 1820, with the inspiration from Maharaja Ranajeet Singh, Sikh warriors threw out and made foreign terrorist invaders flee away! And then Sikhs ruled there. After Sikhs, Dogra friends ruled there and during the Dogra rule, the few remaining Kashmiri Pandits started to strengthen themselves. And one difference that has been between Hindu and Muslim rulers is that, the Hindus, by nature of Hindu philosophy cannot be fanatic. Because Hindu religion’s very foundation is ‘Sarva Dharma Sambhaava’ (that we will respect your personal beliefs because we believe in existence of different paths to the same Ultimate goal). So this respect for diversity has been a core nature of Hindus.
I will not say anything about Islam, but the Islamic rulers execute their own extremist versions of Islam. Since I dont understand Arabic, so I cant know what actual Islam is, and hence I wont comment upon that.
But in this version of Islam which these Islamic rulers execute, other than a Muslim, all other persons, places of worship of any other belief system are allowed to be killed, tortured, destroyed in any way. And this is considered as a great deed for them! And this hatred is not limited to just towards non-Muslims, they even establish sects within Muslims and claim to belong to only true version of Islam. That’s why you will see that even in Pakistan which has entire population as Islamic, there’s high frequency of bomb blasts in civilian public places, cases of attacks on Sufis et al. So this is one extremely fanatic mindset, where people tend to get into holier-than-thou-attitude and consider anyone differing with their beliefs as doomed! This is what happens there in the end.
So after 1820, Kashmiri Pandits started gradually strengthening themselves. Sikhs started establishing themselves. And as I said, Kashmiri Pandits have intellectually been very strong since their foundations have been very philosophical. Even during British rule, Kashmiri Pandits used to top most of the examinations, recruitments etc because of being competitive by nature. So, they gradually dominated the administrative positions in govt purely on the basis of merit.
In 1931, Sheikh Abdullah started political movement in Kashmir and promoted this hyped hatred towards Kashmiri Pandits for dominating the administrative posts in govt. He started a massive movement to gather support to separate Kashmir from Kashmiri Pandits. As s result of which on 13th July 1931, brutal massacre of Kashmiri Pandits and Sikhs happened. Numerous Kashmiri Pandits were killed, Mothers and sisters were raped, their body parts severed and thrown, temples destroyed..This is the history of Sheikh Abdullah and JK National Conference, whatever they may claim today.
Afterwards, this madness continued till 1948, when tribal from Pakistan again tried to attack Kashmiris. And for the sake of our irrational non-violence virtue, we didn’t respond to them, our respond got delayed. A lot of massacre and rapes happened until our army could reach there to protect people. Such things happened which I cannot even speak as my soul shivers while even thinking about them, so please research yourself, there’s a book named – ‘The Lost paradise’ by professor ??? on this issue, and I guarantee that your soul will be jolted after reading it!
After that, on part of Kashmir that came within India, situation started getting a bit normal. But then in 1986, Gul Shah’s govt came and he again enticed people into violence on the false foundations of why Kashmiri Pandits are enemies of Kashmiri Muslims. On the basis of some events in Jammu, this govt provoked the Kashmiri Muslims in such a manner that once again Kashmiri Pandits were attacked in Kashmir Valley. Numerous major temples etc were destroyed, large scale rapes were committed. Army was eventually able to control this situation.
Afterwards in 1988, when Pakistan started importing Afghani Jihadis, JKLF got formed, and once again this slogan was spread that ‘Kashmir is only for Kashmiri Muslims’. And the massacre that followed is in recent memory of
ours.In around 1989, Tikalal Taploo was killed first in front of public. Afterwards, one after the other, so many attacks happened, so many rapes with our Mothers and sisters happened, that before Army could respond, before our Govt, which tends to believe in political correctness could take any stern action, a lot of Kashmiri Pandits, Kashmiri Sikhs, Kashmiri Buddhists were forced to lose their everything. Losing life is a minor thing, more than their lives, they were forced to lose their families, were forced to watch dignity of their Mothers and sisters being stripped away.
And this pattern is continuing till this day. Estimate is that after 1989, 3.5 lakh Kashmiri Pandits are roaming around after losing their all in the Valley. For us, its a matter to drown ourselves to death, if we dont do anything for them. If we don’t vow to re-establish these Kashmiri Pandits, Kashmiri Sikhs, Kashmiri Hindus back into the Kashmir Valley, on today’s occasion of Mahashivaratri. (Because they are the actual Kashmiris! According to origin of Kashmir, according to our basis of culture, our history and according to everything else.) These Kashmiri Pandits, Kashmiri Sikhs, Kashmiri Hindus are the actual Kashmiris who have given something to world, have contributed to it, who have taught us the emotions of ‘Sarva Dharma Sambhaava’ (that there exist different paths towards same Ultimate goal, which can and should coexist with mutual respect), which is our legacy; who are still contributing tremendously to our Nation even after being refugees, and even after all that happened with them; and this is amazing!
So yes, Kashmir has to be liberated. It is to be liberated from those Jihadis who are talking of liberating Kashmir from India. A statement by some Nehru under someone’s pressure can go to hell! Kashmir IS an integral part of India- geographically also, historically also. And no one politician can be enough to be able decide on behalf of a whole Nation, on basis of his personal whims, weaknesses and businesses.
Until you cannot refute historically, culturally; the Kashmiri Pandits’, Kashmir’s contributions; even talks of separating Kashmir from India will be ridiculous and having no logical foundation whatsoever. And if there’s a logical foundation, then even I can say tomorrow, that ‘Hey, I am sitting here within this house, liberate me with this area as I dont wanna remain a part of India!!’ Every individual can claim his flat, his field where he’s standing as his own separate state! You will say conduct a plebiscite. Definitely, in this room of this house of mine also, please conduct a plebiscite! And 100% votes! Because I alone am sitting in this room and saying liberate me from India!
So this stupidity has no limit and no scope.What’s needed is this that we repay the sacrifices made by our Kashmiri Pandits, our Kashmiri Sikhs, our Kashmiri Hindus. That we repay the debt of Guru Teg Bahadur, and re-establish them to their homes in Kashmir Valley, and make the Jihadis flee away (I am not saying that Kashmiri Muslims are all goons. There are only ‘some’ psychos inspired by Pakistan which must be made to flee. Rest many Kashmiri Muslims have even taken recruitment in Marching Parade in Army. My salute to them all! If there was Hanamanthappa who made supreme sacrifice at Siachen, there was Mushtaq Ahmed as well. So every such person who considers himself to be a part of India, should be established in Kashmir). Bogus laws like article 370 having no logical foundation, and which have become a mere a tool to separate Kashmir from India, must be repealed.
And we live as One India, One Nation.
So let us all work towards it. Once again, shat-shat pranaam (hundreds of salutes) to all the Kashmiri Pandits, Kashmiri Sikhs, Kashmiri Hindus for their sacrifices. And it’s a promise from me to you all, that the way Guru Teg Bahadur sacrificed even his life for your protection and dignity, whatever even a petty and humble person like me can gather to, I am ready to do, by dedicating my life, in order to repay that debt.
Har Har Mahadev.
