JAIN INTELLECTUAL RESPONSE TO CHRISLAMIST INFLUENCE: CONTRIBUTION TO HINDU INTELLECTUAL RESISTANCE
Blog 2-Jain intellectuals from medieval times to the present, their arguments against moorti repudiation, and review of some Jain Indologists: In the last blog, we studied the background of Jain suffering against Islam, in the broader picture of Hindu suffering. In this second blog of the series, we shall be studying Jain intellectual responses to the intra-Jain debate: whether or not to worship (Jain) moortis, which line of argument then became available in the colonial era, to provide a template to counter even Christian propaganda against Indic faiths. We shall also be reviewing the works of some Jainology Indologists.

JAIN RESPONSE TO ISLAM IN AN OVERALL DHARMIK-HINDU NARRATIVE
Abrahamic propaganda of Jihaad-bil-Zubaan,Jain intellectualism, Hindu narrative
Opposition of Islam or Christianity to moorti Pooja is well documented as it is there is Abrahamic scripture. This blog series 1-to-3 highlights how Jains faced the standard Abrahamic psychological propaganda machine, the “Jihad-bil-Zubaan”, as well as actual physical threats, and places Jain resistance squarely in the Hindu side of the overall ‘Hindus-facing-Abrahamics’ narrative.
Blog 1-The need for discovering a narrative by Jains to ‘Chrislam’ and the positioning of the narrative in the overall Hindu narrative; Jain reactions to Islamic presence, e... more
WHEN JIHAD ATTACKS, JAINS TREATED NO DIFFERENTLY, KAFFIRS ALL THE SAME
This is an account of Jihad against Jainism: Jain mandir destruction, conversion, lovejihad, terrorism and killing of Jain leaders and GoRakshaks, across centuries, spanning 1300+ years in India and lands lost to India, namely Afghanistan, Pakistan and Bangladesh.
Jainism Versus Islam
In the Islamic mission to wipe out everything unIslamic from the face of the earth, to wipeout moorti-pooja / worship of anyone other than Allah or reverence to anyone other than Mohammed, does not spare Jainism. So there has been plenty of destruction of Jain structures, just like destruction of Vaidika-Astika structures... more
Martial arts of Akhanda Bharat or undivided India including Sri Lanka are our pan-Hindu heritage – a crucial system of Hindu armed resistance to invaders. When practising weapons is practised as a Guru-Shishya parampara, with rules and restrictions, with updating and evolution of styles, it is a martial art.
A lot of internet information focuses on just a few styles. A lot of such internet websites fail to underline the Hindu nationalistic basis of these martial arts, or show their similarities in origins and tenets. All that has been attempted in this blog. So while the style is informative and slightly encyclopedic, it serves to provide a ready compendium on Indian martial arts.
In this blog, as stated, we s... more
Hindu society has systems of armed resistance and resilience to invaders, inbuilt by Dharma, which overthrew many an invasion or long-standing occupation… There has also been eventual recovery of identity, independence and sovereignty. This endeavour is to identify these Dharmik systems, recognise threats to the continuity of these systems of resistance and discuss methods to uphold, practise and utilize them for India’s present crisis, to help Hindus recover from colonisation, exploitation and proselytising forces. In a series of three blogs, in this first blog, we shall be mainly covering the Hindu Akhada.
The three-part blog series…
Part One: Hindu reverence for weapons; inbuilt Dharmik systems of resilien... more
HINDU MUSLIM RIOTS: POLICE, POLITICS, HINDU SELF-DEFENCE
Without police protection assured in HinduMuslim riots due to Secularist Indian politics, Hindus must prepare for self-defence.
DISCLAIMER AND CLARIFICATION BEFORE THE MAIN CONTENT:
This blog writer, vide articles like this, does not advocate communal violence for pre-emptive wanton reasons, like instigating riots and harming life, limb, reputation and property, which should be prevented by good governance; where riots that have begun must be prevented from spreading with speedy justice to the first victims and fair administration and justice in the overall approach. Savarkar had himself said, after independence, that we have to use the ballot instead of the bullet.
Regarding how the Indian State and society must deal with communal ... more
A small section of Indian Muslim society IS involved with desi cow protection and also, cattle conservation- there are Muslim gau paalaks and gau sewaks, Muslim proponents of Cow Rearing and even Muslim Cattle conservationists. Let us see some examples.
Jabar Jat, Kutchh:
Jabar had resorted to hunger strike outside the Kutchh collector’s office (Gujarat), demanding fodder arrangements per taluka (mandaal / block) of the district.

Introduction: GoKaarya / GauKaarya / GouKaarya would be the net summation of all steps related to saving cows: from saving cows to saving breeds and saving society. Economic benefits, political gains and agroecological betterment are all accrued from GoKaarya. This article discusses the economic benefits of GoKaarya.
GoKaarya may have started with GoRakshaks halting trucks carrying cattle for slaughter and rescuing the cattle from Muslims or by accepting an old or neglected cow abandoned by Hindus, but it must progress to GauSamVardhan (restoration of cattle breeds of Bos indicus) to eventually, an inside-out change of mental thought processes and lifestyle of Indian society brought about by incorporating the presence of cattle into all aspects of life – health and food, farming and ecolo... more
Baluchistan, Eastern Iran, Pakhtunistan and Pak-occupied Jammu-Kashmir:
ViSmrut GoVansh, ViSmrut Nadiyaan, ViSmrut Pradesh:
The forgotten GouMaata breeds, rivers and territories of Undivided India’s West
The words ‘INDICUS’ (in Bos indicus) and ‘INDIA’ respectively refer to Indian Zebu cattle and to historic undivided Hindu India (Akhand Bharatvarsha). India – to upright Hindus – includes not just what is India as of post-1947, but also what is Afghanistan, Baluchistan and Pakistan, regions pending fulfilment of the Akhanda Bharat pledge: of re-conquest by India of whatever all was lost after separatisms, Islamic conversions and partitions gradually over the last 1300 years.

DESI COW REARING, GLOBAL WARMING, CLIMATE CHANGE
Gir cattle grazing in their pasture http://www.kesariyafarm.com/img/portfolio/About3.jpg
Whether desi cattle we want to save cause or instead alleviate Global Warming in the net balance depends on correct management by humans, in our case Hindus.
We all release carbon dioxide as living beings, so do our cattle. We cannot love the cow and hate everyone and everything else, we shouldn’t disregard science. Let GauKaaryakartaas stop sloganeering & understand science to save both GauMata & SrushtiMata.
A. Cows can help us fight climate change, but only if we follow sustainable grazing:
The world is warming due to human practices: Global Warming we see today is therefore anthropogenic, or, ‘human-caused’... more
