Submitted by Faisal (India), Aug 22, 2006 at 00:38

I am a History teacher from Brazil and need to know who assassinated Mahatma Gandhi (Great person), Indira Gandhi and Rajeev Gandhi in India. Who is Sonia Gandhi? I heard she is an Italian. Is it true? I also need to know is it true that India has been invaded by many people such as Aryans (5000 years ago), Mongols (4000 years ago), Romans (2000 years ago), Turks (1000 years ago), Afghans (800 years ago), Mughals (700 years go), Dutch & Portuguese (500 years ago) and Finally By British (275 years ago).

What is Kashmir, Haidrabad, Assam, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka Issue and also let me know how much Indian part is occupied by China?

I will be grateful if some one can give clarifications about above points. I have been writing a History book and one of the chapter is related to India.

I also heard there were some serious problems in some part of India for Temple and Mosque and also some mishaps in one of the state. I think it was Gujarat.

I also heard that Buddhism, Sikhism and Jainism religions were born in India. Is it true? I also want to know Aryans came from Germany or Iran because I am totally confused from different people with different story. What is cast system in India?

I also heard that some terrorist want to destroy Taj Mahal. The eight wornder of the world. Can anyone tell me who constructed Taj Mahal and where it is located? I am planning to visit Taj during Christmas holidays.


Mahatma Gandhi was assassinated by a HIndu fundamentals Nathuram Vinayak Godse ,

Indira Gandhi was assasinated on OCT 31 1984 by her 2 sikh bodyguards in revenge of Golden Temple attack.

Rajiv Gandhi was assassinated by LTTE in 1991 , LTTE a hindu terrorist organisation fighting for a seperate home land in Sri Lanka against the Buddhist majority .

India was of Dravids and these Aryans are semi-nomadic Nordic Whites, perhaps located originally on the steppes of southern Russia and Central Asia,..many races attacked India including Muslims and Christians brits.

Kashmir is the intergal part of India and Pakistan is waging a proxy war against India and USA is not seeing this.

Hyderabad is in South india which was ruled by Nizams and Nizam Mir Osman Ali Khan joined India after 1 year of india independence from british

Assam is in north east of India , where Christians are fighting against the Indian army

Bangladesh got independence from Pakistan in 1971 with the help of India, 90,000 pakistani troops surrendered in this war against Indian army 16th dec 1971 .Now India and Bangladesh are having border disputes and many illegal bangladeshis are settled in India .

Sri lanka is fighting a war against LTTE , which is the most deadiest terrorists outfit in this world according to the US home department.

China controls about 16,500 square miles (42,735 sq km) in the northeast some was gifted by Pakistan.

On 6th dec 1992 ,1000 years old , Babri masjid was demolised by Hindu fundamentals even before the Supreme court verdict , after claims that Ram (God of hindus )was born there and mosque was illegally constructed by Mughal emperor babur on the temple . and till not no verdict has came out and 1992 was the worst communal violence in india .

Gujrat was the state in which communal violence erupts after an attack on a train carrying Hindu piligrims.The train was burned and many were dead in that train ,according to the reports Hindu piligrims misbehave with a muslim girl and try to molest her . after that incident 2000 muslims were killed , 13 till 60 years old muslim females were raped , muslims business establishments were destroyed and many muslims were burnt alive. State govt of Narender Modi was responsible was this and even police didnt try to save muslims.

Buddhism was born in India Sixth centuries before the Christians era 560 B C Buddha orginally name was Siddharta and Gautam family name .

Sikhism was founded by Guru Nanak sab 500 years back .

Jainism was founded by Mahâvîr, the Great Hero (599-527 BC).

Aryans came from Germany first settled in Iran and slowly slowly invaded the land of Dravids native Indians.

The Indian caste system has been in use for many years. Still today the values of the caste system are held strongly. It has kept a sense of order, and peace among the people. There are five different levels of the system: Brahman, Kshatriya, Vaishya, Shudra, and Harijans. Within each of these categories are the actual "castes" or jatis within which people are born, marry, and die.

Taj Mahal was constructed by Mughal emperor Shah jahan in the memories of his wife Mumtaz mahal in the year 1630 till 1653 at Agra, North India .. but many wants to change the history of India and started saying that Taj Mahal was constructed by Hindu Rajputs.. British know this better coz they were already in india at that time .
