Again friends, your history books are written upside down : Villains like Aurangzeb, Tipu Sultan, Nehru who did so much damage to India’s fabric that it will take generations to wipe out. Their mistakes are given pride of place, while true heroes such as Maharana Pratap, Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj or Sri Aurobindo, get 2 lines and sometimes in a disparaging manner, such as Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj was mostly a plunderer.
True, Akbar was the best of the Mughal emperors; however, Maharana Pratap never forgot that he laid siege to his father’s Chittor fortress, killed 30.000 Hindus and forced all the women to commit Jauhar so that they would not be raped and taken as slaves by Akbar’s soldiers.
Hindus have a tendency to surrender easily or else to think that the enemy is not as bad as made out. I remember in my country France my grandmother saying, ‘The Germans were not so bad / Or Hitler was OK”. But Sri Aurobindo clearly said it – Hitler was an asura that needed to be eliminated because if he had conquered the world as he wanted to, it would have meant the end of our civilization.
In the same way, Maharana Pratap understood that the Mughals were deadly enemies, even if Akbar seemed ok and wanted to make friends, because if the Mughals had conquered the whole of India, then Bharat would be totally Muslim today !
It is because of heroes such as Maharana Pratap, Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, or Rani Kittur Chennama, that Hinduism and the Knowledge that props up Hindu Dharma has survived even today.
Let us remember that in our times, we see the same phenomenon. The BJP4India for instance, has a tendency to trust the Chinese, every time they say they want to negotiate (and then they do not withdraw but encroach on more Indian territory) or think that Muslims will vote for them or that the foreign press will eventually love @narendramodi.
BUT THEY ARE THE ENEMY !!!
YES, #COVID is also the enemy (many of you have told me that these posts were good, but the timing wrong) – but again know the enemy. First it came from China (the western Media does not want to call it a Chinese virus, but has no problem now talking about the Indian Covid strain !); whether it escaped from the Wuhan biological lab or it was released in some parts of the world as some kind of biological warfare, remains to be seen – but even some leftists pro-Chinese newspapers like France’s Le Monde, are now asking the question openly; secondly, it is not only the virus itself that is dangerous, but the asuric forces, the same that were behind Hitler, that go with it – fear, paranoia, suspicion of the others, and we see that the Media, the politicians and the Allopathic lobby are those vehicles the adverse forces to spread fear and terror, even a thousand times more people die of cancer, old age, road accidents, heart attacks, etc.
In the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Museum of Indian History Pune, which I founded, we show true enemies such as Tipu Sultan, Aurangzeb or the Portuguese Inquisition and we celebrate heroes and heroines of India. It is a seva project, entirely dependent on donations.
Hindus do not recognise who the enemy is & thus cannot fight !
The battle of Haldighati is as important to India as Napoleon’s Austerlitz victory, or Robert Clives’ Plassey’s routing the Nawab of Bengal, or the Allies landing in Normandy in 1944 heralding the beginning of the end for Hitler … For the first time, a Rajput was able to defeat the mighty Mughals – and Akbar at that. War victories are not only in the battle field, but in the mind and in the occult world.
Maharana Pratap’s extraordinary courage against the foreign invaders (& Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj in Maharashtra) paved the way for Mughals’ ultimate defeat. Indeed, by the time the British arrived, they were just figureheads and it needed the great Mutiny (in which unfortunately the Hindus participated) for the last Mughal king to be put back on the throne but even then he was a spent force and did not last long.
As I said, what Maharana Pratap or Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj first did, was to recognize the enemy and then fight it.
Today, we see in the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Government that it has often difficulty in recognizing the enemy, whether the Chinese, Sonia Gandhi who did so much damage to India’s fabric in ten years of supreme power (without even holding the post of PM) or Mamata Banerjee, who exacted her pound of Hindu flesh after her defeat in Nandigram (& the Center keeping quiet) – and then fight these enemies.
But Gandhism & a false sense of ahimsa comes in-between and Hindus, instead of standing up to these enemies that often want them dead (like Sonia Gandhi and Chidambaram allowed a female terrorist in Gujarat who wanted to assassinate Modi).
Hindu leaders wish Sonia Gandhi on her birthday or think that all religions are the same or believe the Chinese when they want to negotiate.
Unfortunately, in your history books, it is described as best as a stalemate and at worse, a victory for Akbar. Maharana Pratap never made that mistake and this is why, we in the Shivaji Maharaj Museum of Indian History Pune, honour him as well as other heroes and heroines, who knew that in the spirit of the Shrimadbhagavad Geeta, you fight the enemy and kill only the body as the soul is immortal.
