An open letter to @NarendraModi, from Francois Gautier

An open letter to the Prime Minister
Dear @NarendraModi,

I am sure you know the story of Prithviraj Chauhan & Muhammad Ghori of Afghanistan. Ghori attacked India multiple times, but he was first routed in present day Gujarat by Mularaja-II, then in Kayadara near Mount Abu, in 1178 A.D, where he was also resoundingly defeated. In the first battle of Taraori in 1191, Prithviraj Chauhan’s cavalry charged and wiped out the Afghan cavalry and captured Ghori. Ghori begged for his life and Prithviraj, like a true Hindu, allowed him to go, despite his generals begging him not to do so.

The very next year, however, Ghori re-attacked Prithiviraj with a stronger army and defeated him by attacking the Rajput army before daybreak. (Hindus followed a noble practice of battling only from sunrise up to sunset). The defeated Prithiviraj was taken as a captive to Ghor in Afghanistan, where first his eyes were burnt with red hot iron rods, as he looked at Muhammad Ghori straight into the eyes, and then executed. Thus ended the story of the brave but unrealistic Prithviraj Chouhan – the last Hindu ruler of Delhi. As you know, Mr Prime Minister, Delhi was to remain under Muslim rule for the next 700 years till 1857, and under British rule till 1947. And since 1947, until you came to power, it has been mostly ruled by the Gandhi dynasty, who think of India as their fiefdom, the same way the Moghols and the English did.

Is the story of Hindu blind and foolhardy tolerance over? Not at all! As you know, when Mr Vajpayee came to power, he gave orders to leave Sonia Gandhi alone. His Friday man, Brajesh Mishra, is even said to have rescued Rahul Gandhi, when he was caught in the US with a suitcase full of cash. Did it earn Sonia Gandhi’s gratitude? No ll! The BJP lost the next elections, as Prithrivaj lost his next battle to Ghauri and Mrs Gandhi efficiently and ruthlessly went all out after the BJP, and particularly against you, Mr @NarendraModi. She may have even known about the bombs in Bihar, during your election campaign, that could have killed you and jeopardized the entire future of India.

It is true, that for the moment you are at the top of your popularity and everything that you do is perceived positively by the public. Yet we know that all cannot be under your total control: the economy, the weather, the changing public moods can alter this wave. We have also seen also how your are not able to pass your important bills in Parliament, which has been held to ransom by Mrs Gandhi, who has only 44 MP’s, a hijack of the democratic system if there is one…

Since coming to power, you seem to be showing lenience and have no bitterness towards those who even savagely went after you when you were CM of Gujarat – including @SoniaGandhiGi, whom you greet on her birthday, as if she is your oldest friend. Nevertheless, it is my belief that as long as Sonia Gandhi is in India, she will be a danger to you, as she is the only one around whom not only the Congress can focus, but also other hostile forces: Sri Aurobindo insisted a lot on the role of ‘occult’ forces, that is asuric forces who use human beings to do harm. @SoniaGandhiG is such a person, and she did a lot of harm to India during the ten years when the @INCIndia Congress was in power when she acted like an empress, over the head of the Prime Minister, Manmohan Singh, though she was only an MP’s, like 525 others.

The idea is that when she goes abroad, which she does frequently and secretly, at the cost of the Indian taxpayer, she be declared persona non grata in India for all the money she stashed abroad, (I am sure Mr @AjitDoval can provide you will al the data). Facts should be then revealed to the press and you should keep away from the controversy and act as it was not in your hands. She is not a very courageous person, and I doubt she would fight at this stage. Her children should be left alone, as Rahul has already ridiculed himself countless of times and Priyanka has Robert Vadra around her neck.

I beg you Sir, do not to repeat the mistake of Prithviraj Chauhan, which cost India so dearly. You of all men, have understood the discourse of Lord Krishna to Arjuna: “that when you country is in danger, your borders are breached, your community ridiculed and ostracized, your people converted by the millions”, it is all right to use force and even sometimes violence.

Yours in Mother India’s love

Sonia Gandhi & Accountability

This lady brought the Indian Congress parry to his lowest tally in 125 years. Her Government was racked by so many corruption scandals that it stopped functioning, long before it was voted out. Although she was just an elected MP like 500 others, she ruled India as an empress for ten years, over the head of Manmohan Singh, who (was) a respected leader. Her son Rahul, has even been ridiculed by the Media, which is generally pro-Congress. She has only 44 MP’s in the parliament, but she has stalled the democratic process of the entire system and is on the verge of nullifying many of the economic progresses done in one year and of blocking urgent reforms that are needed if India wants to move on the world scene. You, girls and buys have elected this new Government. Are you going to allow this lady to ruin it al??? FG

#India’s generosity and the ungratefulness of minorities

India gives refuge to persecuted minorities and then they bite the hands that fed them. Did you know that there were Arab merchants prior to the Muslim invasions, who had freedom of movement and worship and that they sided with the first Muslim invaders? Or that India is the first country that gave refuge to persecuted Christians from Arab counties, and they too sided with the Portuguese and helped to persecute Hindus? Today @JohnDayal​ or Saint Stephen’s College in Delhi, which has churned out generations of anti-Hindu intellectuals, such as Barkha Dutt​, or Ramachandra Guha​, or Valson Thampu​, are the most bitter enemies of Narendra Modi​
Luckily, there are the Parsis, the Jews and the Tibetans, who were ever grateful for the freedom they got and integrated as Indians. FG

You girls and guys should Boycott the @IndiaToday​ group and ask them to #Sackrajdeep

You girls and guys should Boycott the India Today​ group and ask them to #Sackrajdeep. They changed the caption of the interview of Salim Khan, Salman Khan​’s father from “He is targeted because he is a Muslim”, which Salim NEVER said, to “He is targeted because he is a celebrity”. Rajdeep Sardesai​ had tweeted the first caption. Is it not cheap, sensationalist, trashy and untrue journalism??? You tell us

here is a twitter trend going on: #SackRajdeep. Someone even accused him of

There is a twitter trend going on: #SackRajdeep. Someone even accused him of owning a bungalow worth 52 crores (see below). What do you think? I had respect for Tehelka​’s Tarun Tejpal, even though I disagreed with most of his ideas. I though he was a staunch Marxist. Then I discovered he was filthy rich and owned a palace in Goa. I wish I had made some more money in my life. But then I you are a truthful journalist, you go counter current and against the politically correct and don”t get these opportunities…. FG

About #YakubDebate & the Bhagavad Gita

About the Death Penalty. The raging debate after #YakubHanging by the Media, shows again how brilliantly the Indian inttelectuals and journalists, the likes of Shekhar Gupta​, @BDUTT, Rajdeep Sardesai​, The Times of India (Timesofindia)​, Hindustan Times​, ape the West.
For what is the Knowledge that still exists in India, but has been lost in the West:
” From birth comes death and from death comes birth. Just like in the spring new buds grow which blossom into flowers and leaves in summer and in autumn change to red, yellow and orange in fall and blow away and become dormant in winter to begin the process all over again in the following year. In the a similar way the soul enters new bodies for its seasons of infancy, youth, maturity and old age and at the end of its cycle of life is born again accepting a new body for another season. This is an inevitable process in the material existence and is the automatic process that governs the birth and death. All beings existing in the material manifestation completely follow this reality.” (Bhagavad Gita, Chapter 2, verse 27)

Which means that Yakub’s body may have been killed, but his soul is immortal, it cannot be touched and will be reborn.
What is then the whole meaning of the #Yakubdebate??? Please tell us??? FG

A propos @BJPRajnathSingh statement on Hindu terrorism & @sardesairajdeep reluctant acknowledgment that there ‘might be ‘ a problem with Islamic terrorism, here is an article that I also shared with @SushmaSwaraj :

A propos @BJPRajnathSingh statement on Hindu terrorism & @sardesairajdeep reluctant acknowledgment that there ‘might be ‘ a problem with Islamic terrorism, here is an article that I also shared with @SushmaSwaraj :

Is there such thing as ‘Hindu terrorism’, as the continuing imprisonment of Sadhvi Thakur for the Malegaon blasts, may tend to prove? Well, I guess I was asked to write this column because I am one of this rare species of foreign correspondents: a lover of Hindus! A born Frenchman, Catholic-educated, non-Hindu, I do hope I will be given some credit for my opinions, garnered after 25 years of reporting in South Asia (for Le Journal de Genève and Le Figaro) – which are not the product of my parents’ ideas, my education or my atavism.
In the early eighties, when I started freelancing in the South , doing photo features on Kalaripayat, the Ayappa festival, or the Ayanars, I slowly realized, on the ground, that the genius of this country lies in its Hindu ethos, or rather in the true spirituality behind Hinduism. The average Hindu that you meet in a million villages, possesses this simple, innate spirituality in his or her genes and accepts your diversity, whether you are Christian, Muslim, or Jain, Arab, French or Chinese. It is this ‘Hindu-ness’ (which cannot be experienced if you sit in Delhi most of the time) that makes most Indian Christians different, from say a French Christian, or an Indian Muslim unlike a Saudi Muslim. I also learnt that Hindus not only believed that the Divine could manifest at different times, under different names, using different Scriptures, the wonderful avatar concept, the perfect answer to 21st century religious strife, but that they had given refuge to all persecuted minorities of the world, whether the Syrian Christians, the Parsis, the Jews (India is the only country in the world where Jews were not persecuted), the Armenians, or today the Tibetans. In 3500 years of known existence, Hindus have also never military invaded another country, never tried to impose their religion upon others, by force or even by induced conversions.
Thus for me, you cannot find less fundamentalist than a Hindu in this world and it saddens me when I see that the Indian and western Press always try to equate terrorists, such as SIMI, who blow up innocent civilians, to angry ordinary Hindus who burn churches without killing anybody. We know that most of these communal incidents often involve persons of the same caste, Dalits and tribals, some of them converted to Christianity and others not. Then, however reprehensible was the destruction of the Babri Masjid, no Muslim was killed in the process; compare this with the ‘vengeance’ bombings of 1993 in Mumbai, which wiped-out hundreds of innocent, mostly Hindus. Yet, the Babri Masjid destruction is often described by journalists as the most horrible act of the two. We also all remember how Sharad Pawar, when he was CM of Maharashtra in 1993, lied about a bomb that was supposed to have gone off in a Mumbai Muslim locality.
I have never been politically correct, but have always written – not what is the prevalent trend – but what I have discovered while reporting . Let me then be straightforward about this so-called Hindu terror. Hindus, since the first Arab invasions, have been at the receiving end of terrorism, whether it was by Teimur, who killed 100.000 Hindus in one day in 1399, or by the Portuguese Inquisition which crucified Brahmins in Goa. Today they are still being targeted: there were one million Hindus in the valley of Kashmir in 1900 – but only a few hundred today, the rest having been made to flee through terror. Blasts after blasts have killed hundreds of innocent Hindus all over India in the last four years; Hindus, the overwhelming majority community of this country, are being made fun of, are despised, are deprived of the most basic facilities for one of their most sacred pilgrimages in Armanath, when their Government heavily sponsors the Haj; they are witnessing their brothers and sisters converted to Christianity by financials traps, seeing a 84 year old harmless swami and his Mataji brutally murdered, reading of blasphemy about their Gods…
So, sometimes, Enough is Enough. At some point, after years or even centuries of submitting like sheep to slaughter, Hindus, those that the Mahatma Gandhi once called gently ‘cowards’, erupt in uncontrolled fury. And it hurts badly. It happened in Gujarat. It happened in Jammu, then in Khandamal, in Mangalore, and in Malgeaon. And it will happen again elsewhere. What should be understood is that this is a spontaneous revolution on the ground, by ordinary Hindus, without any preplanning from the political leadership. Therefore, the BJP, instead of acting embarrassed, should not disown its brothers and sisters who choose other means to let their anguished voices be heard.
Today there are about a billion Hindus, one in every six persons of this planet, one of the most successful, law abiding and integrated communities in the world. Can you call them terrorists?
