Muslims denigrate ‘Shiva-linga’ in Akola

Well, well!! The Somnath plunder incident occured more than 1000 years ago and to many secularists and humanists, this would be something out of the history books. And history, thanks to the American materialism, has become more like a fantasy. Remember Marsellus in Pulp Ficton: "I'ma get medieval on your ass?" Yes, medieval is some sort of fantasy parallel world thats not supposed to be 'real'.

But then, the Somnath plunder incident
1) was not definitely the first of its kind,
2) was not defnitely the last of its kind,
3) was not an exclusive feature of only that age.

Incidents like these, have happened till the late 18th century, during the british rule at the end of 19th century, in the living memory of many of our grand-parents in the early 20th century and well documented evidence after independence.

Nevertheless, here goes:

Muslims Denigrate 'Shiva-Linga' in Akola, Maharashtra

Growing insolence in Muslims owing to Congress appeasement! O Hindus, be prepare to Save Temples from ant-Hindus to serve Hindu Dharma!

Akola (Maharashtra): Fanatic Muslims burst in Sopinath Temple and denigrated Shiva-linga, idol of ‘Nandi (the vehicle of Lord Shiva)’ and the trident while raising slogans of ‘Allah Ho Akbar’. They also attacked brutally the priest of the temple. (Hindus must note that the attack by insolent Muslims are on the rise; and it is time that the Hindus carry weapons which are permitted by law to restrain the Muslims! – Editor SP)

Hundreds of enraged Hindus took to the road that caused tension in the area. (Hindus must eradicate Congress in the forthcoming elections as it has created Pakistan-like conditions in this country! – Editor SP) Both the factions have lodged complaints against each other. Cases have been filed against 9 persons out of whom 5 have been arrested.

A gang of 10-15 fanatic Muslims went to the temple on Tuesday in the evening and started beating up Seetaram Chavan, the priest. (How can Muslims dare to hit a Hindu priest in India where Hindus are supposed to be in majority ? – Editor SP)

Later, several youths from both the groups took to the road. Police have arrested 3 Muslims based on the complaint lodged by Chavan. (How only 3 Muslims have been arrested when there were 10-15 fanatic Muslims involved in the attack ? – Editor SP) One Muslim young woman was asked to lodge a complaint with the police against the priest implicating him in the case of eve-teasing. Due to this complaint, police took into custody even Chavan and Deepak Phulari. (Police are prompt in taking action against Hindus ! – Editor SP)

A minor setback to the Xtian vassal

Andhra High Court stays state funding of Christian pilgrimage

Hyderabad, July 22 (IANS): The Andhra Pradesh High Court Wednesday stayed a state government order providing financial assistance to Christians for pilgrimage to Bethlehem, Jerusalem and other places connected with the life of Jesus Christ.

While staying the order issued last year, a division bench headed by Chief Justice A.R. Dave ruled that the government should not spend public money for any pilgrimage.

The court order came on a public interest litigation challenging the constitutional validity of the order issued by the minorities welfare department July 21 last year.

The petitioner argued that a secular state cannot fund pilgrimage to Jerusalem and other holy places. He contended that the Indian Constitution in Article 266 clearly states how the funds of state could be spent.

Under the order, the state government had announced a financial assistance of Rs.20,000 to each Christian pilgrim undertaking seven-day tour to Jordan and Israel.

The first batch of 51 Christian pilgrims had undertaken the pilgrimage with the government assistance in November last year. The total cost of the pilgrimage was Rs.56,000 for each pilgrim.

The pilgrimage includes visit to Bethlehem, Jerusalem, Nazareth, Jordan River, Dead Sea and Sea of Galilee and other important places connected with the life of Jesus Christ.

The state government had allocated Rs.20 million for the purpose in the 2008-09 budget.

Indian Diplomacy

One couldnt put it better!

Visit of Hilary Clinton to India

By B. Raman

The following is the reply sent by me to an E-mail question from a journalist asking for my reaction to the forthcoming visit of Mrs. Hilary Clinton, the US Secretary of State, to New Delhi for talks with the Indian leaders:

It will be essentially an "ego-massaging" visit. India's inflated ego was hurt when she went to China first in February and spoke in very positive terms about China. She has already embarked on an exercise to introduce correctives.

2. Whatever she might say to please India, the reality is that Pakistan and China are more important to the US at present than India. Pakistan is important for preventing another 9/11 in US homeland and for preventing a catastrophic act of terrorism involving the use of weapons of mass destruction material and China for its economic recovery.

3. Comparatively, India's utility to the US is limited. At the same time, the US cannot ignore India because of its size, its democracy, its economic potential in another 10 years if not now and the vigorous Indian-origin community in the US which is politically more active than the Chinese-origin community.

4. We can expect from her positive statements and gestures, but one cannot say definitely how sincerely-meant they would be. Indians have a weakness for flattery and tend to indulge in wishful-thinking.

5. We have no culture of strategic-thinking and laser-sharp analysis based on cruel facts and figures. But we have a long-ingrained culture of wishful-thinking. All Hillary Clinton has to do is to make a few statements describing India as a great power, praising Mahatma Gandhi, highlighting the impact of Gandhiji on Martin Luther King and Barack Obama, India's IT genius etc, Indians will be quite happy for some months till the next disappointment comes.

6. Americans understand India better than they understand Pakistan and its jihadi hordes. Pakistanis understand the US better than Indians.

7. Hype and flattery will be the defining characteristics of her visit. Indian ego will remain tickled for some months.

8. Ultimately, our people will continue to die at the hands of jihadi terrorists. Pakistan will continue to use terrorism against India to change the status quo in Jammu & Kashmir. Americans will continue to link terrorism with Kashmir.
