A humble appeal to my fellow Indians

More violence in the name of God, community and religion took place in Mumbai.

Why can’t we all just get along?

How many more people need to be killed?
How many more mother’s have to loose their children?

How many more children have to loose their parents?

How many more spouses have to loose their partners?
Before we all can UNITE under the tricolor flag of India.If India can find ways and means to launch satellites, travel in space, build one of the most advanced missiles in the world & aspire to send a man to the moon in the next decade, such HIMALAYAN dreams can only be achieved by India by solving the most difficult problems in pure mathematics, engineering, astrophysics, chemistry, aeronautics and other scientific and social disciplines.

This truly shows that we are a nation of hard working intellectuals, who are open minded and ever ready for adventure and learning new things in life.

However, we are absolutely blinded by the subject of religion. India’s BIGGEST challenge of curbing communal disharmony, heinous acts of violence in the name of God is its inability to recognize that the true message of religion is HUMANITY.

We humans should start believing in HUMANITY more than what the good book teaches, because the very essence of loving GOD is to love & serve HUMANITY.

End the violence now and forever, speak up & hold our government officials and community leaders accountable for their lack of  integrity and understanding.

Let us all join hands and promise ourselves to respect each others views and religious beliefs even when they are in different than our very own, promise to respect each other’s Constitutional rights & to uphold the law.

Please, let us all get together and help India grow and transform into a more tolerant, civil & peaceful nation looked upon, well respected and admired by other countries of the world.Thank you

Let us educate ourselves on the dangers of fundamentalism in India & around the world.

I am a social activist, who firmly believes in a free democracy, and human rights.

My sole objective is to educate the people around the world, especially India, my birthplace, on the rise of government abuses, such as violation of civil rights & the sharp rise in religious fanaticism and right wing movements such as Shiv Sena, a ultra right wing Hindu group which admires & worships ADOLF HITLER. The Government of India (GOI) has done absolutely nothing to curb this menace for the past 50 years.

India has more than 10,000 Hindu and Muslim right wing groups. Each promoting their own dangerous ideology.

Shiv Sena wants to ban everyone from celebrating Valentine’s Day (February 14th). Since, they cannot convince anyone to follow their stupid ideology or share in their dream of  a “Valentine Day Free India” the Shiv Sena took it upon themselves to illegally “policing” the streets, restaurants and bars to enforce their will on the destiny of educated and liberated Indians through acts of violence.

Each of these violent groups work independently and in uni-some to achieve their political goals and objectives through the impetus of fear, intimidation, kidnapping, extortion, rape, murder and so on.

If we as a human race continue to tolerate, dismiss or simply turn a blind eye to these injustices, free democracies such as India will cease to exist as democracies.

The rule of law, freedom of expression, assembly, speech, & religion, among many other freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution of the Republic will no longer serve as the protector of its citizens.

WE must unite & fight criminals, politicians, & internal enemies of the state who hold positions of power in all three branches of our government.

WE must stand united if we want to secure the future of our country. This task is of paramount importance & I urge every man, woman & child to join me. ~ Thank you

Dangers of a Theocratic Society

Religious Fundamentalism – Islamist in the UK & Europe

Please, share the link posted at the bottom of this article with your family & friends.

Hello Friends & critics

Please, take 5 minutes from your daily schedule to watch the video by clicking on the link below. Here you see Muslims calling for Sharia law in the UK after the wife of a bomber was arrested & taken in for questioning.

I have the following questions to ask?

1.   Is the UK not a democracy?

2.  Do you believe Islam is a tolerant religion?

3.  If it is then we must consider the rule of law in countries such as Saudi Arabia, Yemen, UAE, Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, Egypt, Algeria, Morocco, and many other Muslim countries, would you not agree?

4.  Why should a democracies such as the UK, USA, France, India, Germany, Holland, Denmark, Ireland, Sweden, Norway & others, follow the Sharia law? These are open societies, run by their democratically elected governments, should they NOT be free to respect and follow their respective Constitutional laws?

5.  Why should democracies around the world follow or give in to the demands of those who wish to establish Sharia law?

Author’s thoughts:

Many of us who have experienced religious / communal hatred & violence first hand will tell you that a society built on religious doctrines is one of the most dangerous society / country in the world. Perhaps you may disagree?

I for sure can say this with a clean heart & rational mind, any individual who espouses, preaches, sympathizes, supports or follows this madness, whether this “madness” is based on the teachings of Prophets Mohammed, Ali, Jesus Christ, Shiva, Vishnu, Zarathushtra or any other is just a BARBARIAN. He/ she has failed miserably to comprehend God’s or Nature’s greatest religion…”HUMANITY”.

Hope you all will join me in spreading the good word by watching the video and sharing the same with your family, friends, co-workers & acquaintances. Stay strong, stay united, stay vigilant. ~ Thank you

Author’s Introduction

Who am I?

What do I stand for?  What are my beliefs?

Why do I care so much?

I am a social activist at heart, hence I started this blog. My sole purpose is to educated the masses in order to bring positive changes to the three branches of the Indian government – the Executive, Legislative & Judicial.

I believe in keeping an open mind, so that I may learn to appreciate various points of view. I do not believe in “my way or the highway” because it is counter-productive.

A free society is only possible if we learn to respect the views, opinions & thoughts of our fellow countrymen/women, without using disparaging remarks, threats of bodily harm and the acts of outright violence and intimidation. Violence, threats, torture, killing, murder, rape, pouring acid (“acid attacks“) etc. are some of the popular tools used by the criminals-turned-politicians & by many others in India to suppress dissent or counter-points/views  in India. This has been the case for times immemorial and we as a nation are told to put up with it.

Why should we tolerate those who do not respect the law of the land? Is the law only for the elite and powerful people in India? Why should the ordinary Indian citizen who earns a honest living and struggles to make ends meet be subjected to such state sponsored brutality? Yes, I used the term “state sponsored brutality” because it is the Republic itself through it’s elected officials carries out such attacks? The Indian government is notoriously famous for meting out “collective punishment”.

Are we not a Constitutional democracy which affords all citizens the Equal Protection of the law and the Right to be heard?

We as a rich ancient civilization, have forgotten many golden rules of civility.

I sincerely wish to bring a positive change to the Indian society in general. This can be be achieved through dialogue, sharing of ideas, opinions, suggestions & thoughts and a burning desire to see India free from the shackles of illiteracy, poverty & political oppression.

I am a firm believer in Free Constitutional Democracies, which affords it’s citizens the fundamental freedom that every human being on our planet must have. A person must be free to chose what he/she thinks, reads, or writes. Freedom of movement & assembly, freedom to follow his religion or beliefs, freedom to criticize the government openly and freely, without worrying about government retribution or punishment.

WE must stand united if we want to secure India’s future. Would you please join me?

Thank you
