Maneka Falsehoods



In the just the previous post on AntiHinduPETA, I stated that ModiSarkar is wrongly called a “Hindutva” govt. Far from making any policy or law favouring Hindus, the BJP govt has done nothing to repeal/modify anti-Hindu laws (like RTE) and not stood against any assaults on Hindu culture or traditions. BJP has mostly been a blind accomplice to assaults by NGOs and Sickulars on their attempts to destroy Hindu culture and traditions. Arun Jaitley was honest when he disclosed to a foreign diplomat that Hindutva was an “opportunistic” issue, implying a mere political or election ploy. Many BJP supporters are realising this and one staunch supporter tweeted her anguish:

That tweet was made on the same day that an article by BJP’s minister for Women & Child Development, Maneka Gandhi came to public light and received much condemnation. This was published in Firstpost with the title “Makar Sankranti, much like Bakr-Id, is a day of cruel animal slaughter throughout India”. A day of ANIMAL SLAUGHTER? Apart from being a collection of outright lies it exposes Maneka’s Sickular disgust for Hindu festivals, traditions and cultures. From a Hindutva govt, a minister of ModiSarkar consistently abuses Hindu traditions. This is not new for Maneka. Trivia: the name “Menaka” (who was a Sikh) was changed to “Maneka” because IndiraG took a dislike to a name originated from a celestial nymph in ancient Hindu stories. The contempt for Hindu mythology seems to run in the Gandhi family. Anyway, let’s get quickly get through some of MG’s silly acts in the recent past.

Sometime back MG grandly advised people to fight corruption the way Sonia Gandhi does. I’m certain the guys would have fallen to the ground in breathless laughter after she left. This misplaced adulation for SoniaG as a corruption-fighter can only come from a very muddled mind. Some of her recent stuff is more anti-Hindu than mere silly advice:

A Commission under MG’s ministry issues this advisory cautioning against child sexual abuse at Diwali crowds in 2016. So Diwali is a time when mass child sex abuse happens? Sheer falsehood. When a govt department buys and sells such nonsense one gets the message of what the minister is up to. And where crowds are concerned, large crowds throng markets and malls even during Eid and Christmas. Why are no such advisories issued through the year for all major festivals? The answer is simple: a predominant anti-Hindu agenda. There are NGOs like World Vision associated with MG’s ministry. These are primarily Christian organisations and equally anti-Hindu. Get the picture and the agenda? Then comes MG’s vicious article in Firstpost which is not only full of LIES but a cavalier act of “Monkey balancing”:

Makara Sankranti is the same as Bakri Eid? This is nothing but extreme contempt for Hindu festivals and traditions. Neither Jallikattu nor Kite-flying on Sankranti mandate animal slaughter in anyway whatsoever. But MG joins the vicious anti-Hindu agenda of Sickulars and NGOs in trashing our festivals with false equivalence. There is no bull slaughter during Jallikattu. People don’t fly kites to slaughter birds. If there are injuries or deaths, these are purely unintended accidents. MG also writes "Young boys bite off chunks of bull's skin during Jallikattu". Unbelievable! A bull’s hide is too thick and strong for a kid to sink his teeth into, especially with the bull running around. I suspect even adults won’t find it easy to chew off a bull’s skin. Must practice on your shoes first, I guess.

Even so, Hindus would gladly be open to making their festivals safer and show more concern for animals and birds. Hindu culture DOES mandate feeding and care for animals and birds. Can MG get Muslims to do so? Would MG dare to file a PIL in any court to ban animal slaughter during Eids? Would she at least petition or propose legislation (given she’s an MP) to make animal slaughter during Eids more humane and less painful for the victims and not brutal Halal? SHE DARE NOT! Chances are she would herself be slaughtered like a goat. Even our courts concede to unreasonable demands of Muslims that refuse to respect their neighbours:

Would Muslims accept a neighbour that cooks and eats pork at home? I seriously suspect it would lead to violence. These are the discriminations our govt and MG conveniently ignore. And MG even considers kite-flying during Sankranti in Gujarat and elsewhere a mass-murder practice. I have heard that the Uttarayan sun on January 14 is healthy for the body. So instead of merely standing in the sun or sun-bathing like Westerners, kite-flying in India became a tradition. This is practiced more in Gujarat. PM Modi has participated in kite-flying every year at least till he was CM of Gujarat. And the Vibrant Gujarat international summit has always been held during the Uttarayan kite-flying festival since 2003:

It is a festival that unites all Gujjus who have their best fighting-skills reserved with their kites in the skies. MG complains of “Chinese Manjha” – a thread embedded with glass powder to make it a sharp cutting weapon. This is not true. Glass powder and colour have been used on thread in Gujarat (through a manual process) long before we ever heard of Chinese Manjha. These are the falsehoods that govts peddle in public. But this is where MG comes up with the mother of all lies in her Firstpost article:

I wonder where she got the figure of 3 lakh birds being killed every year. I searched all over and could not find such a figure and would be happy to get a reference by anyone. True, birds do get killed or injured but not in the alarming proportions claimed. And these are unfortunate accidents and not warranted or mandated by the festival as it is during Eids to which MG compares Makara Sankranti.

Yes, the threads can be made less dangerous. But a bit of potent glass powder is inevitable. Without a certain sharpness in threads, Uttarayan kite-flying would be like Spanish bull-fighting with the Matadors without a lance. There have also been injuries to two-wheeler riders with stray kite-strings cutting their throats or arms. There have also been stray cases of deaths due to throats being slit by the sharp strings. But here too, the Gujjus have devised ways to protect themselves rather than do away with sharp strings. The pic shows how an ordinary metal wire-shield has been innovated and fitted into two-wheelers to protect the rider from the threads. What does MG have to say about birds being routinely killed over airport skies for safety of aircrafts?

Obviously, MG is not an aviation expert. It would be worth knowing that even without the glass powder a kite flown with ordinary thread can become very heavy in the air. A kite flying about 500-1000 feet above the ground gets very heavy as does the thread. In such a situation, a bird in flight can still be injured and fall to the ground. An ordinary bird weighing about 4 or 5 kilos has the impact of anywhere between 500 kilos and a ton when it hits an aircraft taking off or landing at 250 kms per hour. That’s why aircrafts and their engines get damaged severely. It should also be known that almost all Indian airports (and world-wide too) employ sharp-shooters to either scare or kill birds from the flight path of aircrafts:

What would MG want? Ban aviation? An activist as a minister is dangerous. Imagine Medha Patkar as minister for rivers and dams. Even if the person has been an activist a long time she should not let personal preferences turn into mindless rants filled with falsehoods. MG was a minister in the ABV govt too for a short period. I believe the compulsion to have a certain number of women as ministers forces these choices because there’s a shortage of female MPs. In her mindless article, MG asserts Hindus complain about the bloody slaughter of animals by Muslims on Eids. She has to learn that Hindus only point out the hypocrisies of hyper-activists like her who dare to speak only against Hindu customs and campaign against them. Many Hindus lament that Hindus do not unite over various issues including politics. I should remind them:

Hindus unite by their social customs, traditions and festivals. Hindus would like to see a petition in court by ManekaG or a law by her that bans animal slaughter by Muslims or introduces at least painless slaughter. And also, a law that this should not offend neighbours or turn our streets into gutters of blood. It is because there are no guts in her, the BJP or any political party that she must stop “Monkey-balancing” with false equivalences. The Jallikattu ban has turned into major protests in Tamil Nadu. Maneka, her party, the govt and the judiciary should take sentiments of people to age-old traditions before embarking on bans. Reform is possible, bans will fail. And such reforms must be done WITHOUT association of anti-Hindu vested interests or foreign NGOs.

  1. Is there a way to petition to the govt or the BJP to throw her and her son out??

    Would love to support if there is such a petition going. She has been nothing but a nuisance. Hobnobbing with Congress and AAP trolls, making inane statements, ignoring reality.

    BJP and the central govt. would be better off without both the Gandhis.

    1. Oh, and I wanted to add... animal sacrifice is really made by all non-vegetarians( Non-brahmins) two days after Sankranti.

      As per traditions, all meat eaters From AP/Telangana at least, forgo eating meat for an entire month before Sankranti, starting Dec. 15th. The vegetarians give up onions, garlic, and white pumpkins. Then, AFTER sankranti, on the day of Mukkanumu, the meat-eaters offer sacrifice to god and eat meat as prasaad and the vegetarians cook onion/garlic.

      This has been an age old custom. Not sure of all of south India follows it.

    2. Hindu traditions have been changing with times getting more compassionate. Sacrifices of animals and humans has been a very common feature of celebrations across the globe in various societies though Islam still continue while many have stopped and like Hindus tokenism of sacrifice is there by way of cracking a coconut by hitting hard on the floor instead of a real animal. During Sankranti puja "wheat with sugar in ghee" is roasted in a wok. This is given a animal shape in a plate which is then cut through with a coin/knife.
      So sacrifice must have been taking donkey centuries back but compassion for living beings amends have been made in many religious rituals.
      The next hit will be bullock cart racing taking place annually in some states.
      I agree in trying hard to break political parties from the Muslim vote bank NDA is totally in mute mode like the three monkeys depicting - see nothing hear nothing speak nothing.

  3. Has the nasty, vicious, slanderous article received the approval of our Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi ji and BJP? Their sphinx like silence and lack of action against this Insensitive minister points to the fact that the article has their blessings. Otherwise she would have been out of the Cabinet.

    1. These articles get all the Hindu's upset with Modi Sarkar, if the government does something then all the sickular media will attack Modi Sarkar.

      Given the fact that the Indian masses are mostly morons, the situation will result in BJP losing the next election and the country back in the hands of anti-nationals like the Congi's and their ilk.

      The Hindu's over a long period mastered the art of complaining, they eloquently talk about how they have been wronged and the injustices handed to them by the minorities and media, but they never unite for any cause at a national level, like the opposition does. Tamil Nadu is showing the way on how to unite for for their cause and it is a welcome change.

      Hindu's stop complaining and attacking Modi Sarkar, get your act together and organize at least as well as the opposition. The strongest asset the opposition has is their unity. Flood the social media and your neighborhoods with your perspective.
      Modi Sarkar though not anywhere near perfect is the best thing that has happened to India in a long time, don't weaken it.

    2. Agree. Even the incidence of dowry have come down not because of stringent laws but because of the social change brought about in the Hindu society.

      Lokmanya Tilak wanted bring about the change in the society by making the people realise their wrongs. He disagreed with Agarkar that the Hindu society should take recourse to the laws being brought by the British.

      Also to remember is that the Hindu laws were codified only after Independence and Hindus whole hearted accepted it. There was. no violent protests on Monogamy being introduced as law.


      The societal change has to be from the society and not imposed.

  10. It is an illusion to thin BJP is pro-Hindu or has a Hindu agenda! On the contrary, BJP is as hypocritical as the CONgress! Not a SINGLE act of BJP can be cited, wherein it has tackled the anti-Hindu acts/forces operating in the country!

    1. Even if they did, isnt that what they would have done in their natural habitat.Do bisons(same family) in Africa not run in water when attacked by lions? Isnt the need to run fast provided by Nature as a mechanism of survival to these animals? Then why is it a big deal if done in an festival event.

  14. Menaka, wife of Vishwamitra, who gave birth to the beautiful and right minded Shakuntala - and thats how we get an insight into Kanva maharshi (probably the first single father of an adopted child) who then gave birth to Bharata - after which this "khanDa" is named. One should be mighty proud to name their girl Menaka, and very well versed in Hindu scriptures too. Menaka was so learned, so beautiful such a fine balance of the tri-gunas, and so talented, such a balanced thinker.

  15. It has become a habit with Indian Judges to pass judgments on subjects that are beyond their purview. A judge is a mindless person who weighs the best of the lawyer arguments & choose the one suits him best & delivers it as his judgment. Judges have lost the discretion of logic. While they have backlog of million court cases, they are taking up non-issues as issues & wasting time.

    In every village there exists certain category of vagabonds & goons, who need to be kept busy in wrestling fights or bull fights else they will become burden on the village & society itself (Dawood Ibrahim is a case) if these bull fight sports are taken away, then these goons will be after women bringing distortions into society & increases crime rate. By keeping them busy in sports, fightings skills are harnessed, to fight any invaders tomorrow. With everyone moving to cities to make a living, the village culture is lost, so does its meanings.
    At the same time, none cares for the amount & quantity of animals killed to become food for non-vegetarians. South Indian media channels have 24 x7 scrolling lines of chicken birds - with & without skin priced at Rs. x y z per kg. PETA promoters themselves are first rate non-vegetarians & do not see anything wrong in that.

  18. Guys/ Ravi please don't ignore the sinister twist now being sought to be given by the mainstream commentariat which we know as secular liberal to the Jallikattu protests - that of tamil sub-nationalism which is being ignored and suppressed. I was very surprised to seek an edit in the TOIlet paper arguing about the misplaced and unenforceable activism on jallikattu. But no such courtesies were extended to Dahi handi in Maharashtra, kiteflying in Gujarat, holi in northern india, and Diwali all across India. What has happened I guess is that the relentless assault on local Hindu traditions have been continuing one after the other on one pretext or the other which you have highlighted and backlash has been building up. In Jallikattu this has come out. But the MSM commentariat has now sought to twist this into Tamil sub-nationalism, consistent with their agenda that Unity of India must be undermined from within playing up faultlines and divisions.I have seen 3 such in Firstpost - one by some T.S. Sudhir, one by David Devdas or something like that and another by G. Pramod Kumar, all consistent now in playing up tamil sub-nationalism. these guys are smart, deviously so. But only if we do not spot their game and let it go on unchallenged. This post has been doing wonderful job till now. Keep it up.
