Skip to comments.New Recruits to Hindu Cause Hear Anti-Muslim Message

As a teenager, Uttam Shaha says he used to watch scornfully from his bedroom window as men in brown shorts performed martial exercises in a car park below. Like many Indians then, he viewed the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) as a fringe group.
Now 43, Shaha is a recent RSS recruit in Kolkata, the capital of West Bengal. He joined about 50 volunteers for an indoctrination meeting last year at that same car park near RSS headquarters in Kolkata. As dusk set in, they sat cross-legged on a faded rug before a statue of Bharat Mata, a representation of India in the form of a mother goddess.
Ramapada Pal, the RSSs chief preacher in the state, espoused a message of Hindu supremacy. Everyone must acknowledge the superiority of the Hindu kingdom, he said.

No decent human being will tolerate anything but antipathy for Muslims.
Unfortunately the Hindu extremists are just as anti-Christian as they are anti-muslim.
A Hindu wouldn’t need to be an extremist to hate Islam to the guts, though.
And even yet, Christian faith still “sells” in India. If you are of a high muckety muck caste you can more easily ignore gospel, but if you happened to be from the wrong “cycle of karma” then the gospel powerfully speaks.
PPS... the higher castes sometimes receive the gospel too, however. I had the privilege a couple decades ago of meeting a Brahmin who had. He had been hired to translate gospels into another language (Hindi maybe?) for some kind of scholarly project, and he met Jesus Christ. Just like that. Sometimes the spirituality that goes on in “backward” places is surprising. I think first world moderns are sometimes so satisfied with their technological bread and circuses that they forget to think about what is beyond it all.
Yes, there is a lot of in-their-face to Christians. What is often less known is how God, through Christians, gets in the devil’s face.
We will all have to commit ourselves, one way or another, to the struggle against Islamic jihad.
It’s going to come down to that or watch our children be beheaded or worse.
Sorry, I really feel this way.
This evil is a warning, but evil doesn’t have to consume us. God has already conquered death and hell. The thing for us is to stop turning our back on the victory. We ain’t going to nice our way out of an encounter with evil, and stooping to its level is going to leave us as bad. The goodness of God really is the only alternative to being overwhelmed.
You are correct, but you fail to point out the uncomfortable fact that HATRED for Islam and it's minions is necessary to deal with that evil. To vanquish an enemy, one must hate him to the point that any violence against him is worthwhile. They understand this...thus far, we don't. There will never be a peaceful coexistence with them. All but the stupidest or the most corrupt among us know this, and most of the grass eaters in our culture are too cowed by political correctness to acknowledge the fact. There is a time for love, and a time for hate.
Myself, personally, I have no problem with the hatred part, but I was striving to speak more broadly, esp. since I didn’t read the whole article at the link, if you know what I mean and I think you do!
I admit that only scanned and did not read the article. I did however read it now, and I didn’t read anything to change my opinion that any decent human being should be at war with Islam. There should be no regard for muslims as human beings until they relinquish their desire for conquest. There should be nothing but hatred and exultation over their bloodied remains. That’s the state of our world at this time. I want no peace with those bastards, and I’m not one of those stupid enough to think there will ever be a peaceful coexistence. Even more, I want those who sympathize with them dealt with too. The time for conciliation has passed, and like I said...they know it but we so far do not.
and in India
The growth of Moslems in India is astounding -- from below 10% of the population at the time Pakistan and Bangladesh tore itself away from India to now when they are 14%
with regards to Christians -- the Hindu nationalists accuse Christians of trying to buy conversions, but they can't get the RSS followers to whip up the same anger as they do against Moslems
Again, Christians merge into Indian culture with Indian names etc. so there is less sense of "the other"
For higher castes, you are correct -- if you are considered close to God, why do you want to give that up?
But in the cities the caste barriers are breaking down.
The same thing with communism and naziism -- you cannot make communism less about conquest as it grew up as a militant way of imposing socialism. Ditto for naziism without racial "philosophy" -- it falls apart (well, arguably it's racial philosophy was also full of holes
I had a close friend that was a hindu. He didn’t hate Christians, but he hated islam with more passion than me, and that’s saying something.
The Christians, perhaps, didn’t want to behead him.
The only good mooselimb is a dead mooselimb.
To hell with em all.
with reason — 1000 years of slaughter
