Subj: Reaction to Dr. Sarkar's message
1. Dear Dr. Suseelan:
We all protest against the intrusions of the Muslims, but the unpleasant history tells us that written protests never work. Saudi Arabia and other Muslim countries do not allow any non-Muslim to practice their religions while staying there. Saudis would not even allow any Christian to carry a Bible there. India was a Hindu country and thanks to our religious tolerance, we allowed every other religion to come to India. Shouting does not work. The Hindus had always been most cowardly and passive and they never learned to fight. We do not follow the examples of Lord Rama or Lord Krishna and go to kill the devils, but worship Thakur Ramakrishna, Chaitany, and now Gandhi, who not only misguided us but caused our failure. The Muslims can burn our temples, kill the Hindus and molest our women, but we are too cowardly to kill even one Muslim rapist. Unless we do what the Muslims did and are doing to us, nothing will stop the Muslims. They know that we are the most COWARDLY people on earth. I wtote all about it in my books but the Hindus do not even bother to read them for free.
Anil K. Sarkar. MD

2. My Take:
Dr. Sarkar appears to be a " Down-To-Earth " type individual, getting into the Nitty-Gritty ( that is, what is essential & basic ) of Hindu's problem.
Quote: but the unpleasant history tells us that written protests never work. .......Shouting does not work.
COMMENT: The value of both written ( formal ) protests, as well as shouting, is extremely disputable. Shouting-Slogans may be good for your lungs, but its clout or cogency, is immoderately questionable.
There is " NO " prospect of getting Hinduism-Defense going, through either of these two " Fishy " techniques.

3. Quote: India was a Hindu country and thanks to our religious tolerance, we allowed every other religion to come to India.
COMMENT: Let us not be silly. We Hindus did allow every Tom, Dick, and Harry ( i,e. every other religion ), to come to India. But it was Not due to our religious tolerance. Let us not invent excuses or apologies.

4. Quote: The Hindus had always been most cowardly and passive and they never learned to fight.
COMMENT: Yes, indeed. Hindus have been passive & defensive. Generally, Hindu has avoided scuffles & bouts of battle, but Hindu is Not cowardly ( there is plenty of fight in the Hindu ). Cowardice is Not Hindu's problem, Hindu's problem is Something-Else.

5. Quote: We do not follow the examples of Lord Rama or Lord Krishna and go to kill the devils
COMMENT: You can say that again.
We Hindus have learned next to nothing, from the lessons of either Ramayana or Mahabharta. We have acted contrary to the teachings of our Vedas ( of confronting/smashing the evil/rakshishas ), and examples of Warrior Lord Rama & Lord Krishna, and allowed barbarians of Islam & Christianity, to trample on us. Shame on us Hindus !

6. Quote but worship Thakur Ramakrishna, Chaitany, and now Gandhi, who not only misguided us but caused our failure.
COMMENT: Using Yanke terminology, these guys were Peace-Niks. They strongly opposed violence, as a means of settling disputes, and preferred Ahimsa ( avoiding violence ) to Himsa, as the cornerstone of ethics & morality.

Smart people of the world know that:
Use of Ahimsa, ALWAYS enormously-multiplies violence in the world. It emboldens barbarians ( rakshishas ), and transforms them into TESTERS. They keep coming at you again & again & again, to determine how far they can push you. On the other hand, confronting the barbarians Always reduces violence in the world.

7. To be completely fair to Gandhi, Gandhi was No coward. In the state of Panjab, there used to be a saying:
" Majboori Ka Naam Gandhi. "

Gandhi was no dummy. In fact, Gandhi was quite smart ( even though he was peace-nik ). He knew Very Well that Hindu, will not pay the price of Freedom or Hinduism-Defense. Consequently, he adopted the technique of Peaceful non-cooperation against the British. It was an Ad hoc solution, invented by Gandhi, for securing independence of India.

8. What about Dr. Hedgewar, the founder of RSS ? Is RSS what Dr. Hedgewar had in mind ?
Answer: Not by a long shot !
Dr. Hedgewar was a Tiger. RRS ( Rashtriya Rakshak Sang ) is what he desired, but he knew darn well that, if he set up RRS, it would be banned by the British in less than a week. He conceived that, Hindus would modify RSS, as time passes, and make it a Hinduism Defense organization. Such a thing has Not happened.

Why has it not happened ? Is RSS leadership too dumb ?
No. RSS leadership knows darn well that, more than 80 % of Hindus of India, are Phoney-Liberal of one type or another, and they will Never support anything like RRS.
9. Quote: They know that we are the most COWARDLY people on earth.
COMMENT: No, that is Not correct, let us not Misname things.
Hindu is Not coward. Hindu is selfish, damn-selfish. He wants to defend Hinduism, but does not want to pay the price of Hinduism-Defense. He wants someone else to pay this price. In other words, Hindu desires a Free-Lunch. But there is No free-lunch in life.
This attitude of us Hindus, creates a PARADOX, a self-contradictory situation.

10. Question: What is the Causation of Hindu's Selfishness ?
Hindu's Highest-Priority is on his Personal-Welfare, his Lowest-Priority is the welfare of the rest of the Hindu community.

This problem is inherent to the Hindu. More than 80 % of the problems of the Hindu, are due to the Hindu & due to his attitude. To blame it on other activities or external structures, is mis-diagnosing the problem.

11. This does Not mean that, Hindu is not confronted with external enemies or challenges. The above discussion is only designed to describe, the RELATIVE- position of Internal & External challenges, confronting the Hindu.

And don't forget that:
" World is based on Relativity. "
