'The Hindus,' by Wendy Doniger

Punjab is a very small state in north India. I can't understand your obsession with punjab. As a lover of India , I too love punjab as well as the sikh gurus, bhagat singh and lala rajpat rai. Unfortunately , Punjab had to bore the brunt of the partition riots, as well as the hindu-muslim riots both in medieval and present India. Babar and the mughals devastated Punjab with rape and murder and looting , and even Guru Nanak himself in his memoirs address Babar as 'that dog' for his inhumane rampages. The same too with the Afghan pathans who swooped down upon punjab for murder and rape and carried away innocent women as booty, which was completely unethical and inhumane. Guru Gobind Singh and the Sikhs under Ranjit Singh, through the strong stand they made, made Punjab safe . However during the partition riots, again tremondous atrocities came about over the punjabis by islamic terrorists resulting in mass rape and murder of punjabis by the islamic terrorists. All these which the punjabi had to suffer more than any other Indian community had created great suffering and feelings of insecurity in the punjabi psyche, and this is why intense feelings of bitterness prevail in them. I believe that what is needed is a sense of security and self-acceptance among the punjabis. And for that proactive activities like group discussions, cultural activities, counselling , meditation sessions and focus on religion can greatly help.  (Apr 26, 2009 | post #28)

'The Hindus,' by Wendy Doniger

India as an entity was there thousands of years before the Britishers came. The true name for India is Bharat, and the term Bharat is there in all ancient scriptures. The Britishers invaded India , just like they invaded Iraq now, and other countries previously and exploited her resources. It is dead wrong. Period.  (Apr 26, 2009 | post #27)

only konkan brahmins are aryans,not others

Well said. Aurobindo himself has said that arya means noble, and all Hindus are Aryas. There is no such thing as an Aryan invasion or migration which were fabricated by the european racist scholars to justify the white British invasion and oppression of Indians.  (Apr 26, 2009 | post #73)
