most people nowadays have a blinkered view of history.let me just put a hindu revisionist stance into a few lines.

during almost half a millenia of total islamic rule in india the muslims stripped one of the worlds foremost civilizations bare and massacred millions of its people.

the only reason that any hindus at all escaped the muslims wrath was that were a huge country (half the size of europe during the early days of islam) and THERE WERE TOO MANY OF US TO KILL.any sane man will feel a pang of horror when he witnesses the killing of a people.during the worst days of the holocaust there were germans who saved detainees.

The west saved civilization,the fact that i today live in a free country and practice an ancient and beautiful faith today fearlessly is because of the battle of tours, the crusades and the following weakening of islam.

the british were no cuddly teddy bears,but they were virgin saints compared to the mughals and their predecessors.they gave us modern industry-schools,railways,ports,telecommunications.

I salute the western soldiers of the reconquista and the crusades.Our freedom today - the freedom of you and I and all other free people everywhere was bought mainly with their blood.

modern hindus have not an inkling of knowledge concerning our own history.we are among the worlds best scientists,doctors and engineers no to mention artists etc etc.but we rank a big ZERO where history is concerned.

hindutva is a grassroots movement of hindu assertation of our history.

at times it is brutal and repressive.it sometimes strikes me as barbaric.it is in short the path followed by a people wanting to assert their own history when they have been abandoned by the pooh-aahing upper classes sitting in their bungalows and penthouse apartments and not giving a thought to their own history.

It is sad and I feel terribly pained when i see that the only way we hindus can call attention to our cause is to wear saffron and act like all round barbarians.

and no I am not a proponent of hindutva.I just want the truth to be known.regardless of the consequences.

and btw fascism means roman imperialism.the fasces was a roman symbol.i dont recall the VHPs meditterranean roots?was their founder named flavian or hadrian.just another example of a modern persons knowledge(or rather an abysmal lack of it) of history.
