On Twitter someone has just told me that Narendra Modi banned Great Soul; Mahatma Gandhi and His Struggle with India because he is a "conservative" (apparently conserving something good in Hinduism, of which is a fanatic votary). Another person on Twitter, masquerading as a "Hindu" said that I'm a "CORNFLAKE VARIETY LIBERAL" because I talk about freedom. Funny.
This self-styled "Hindu" told me that: "Talking n worrying about freedom is elitist only wory. There r othr imp things 2 wory about" and that "Its about priorty of d 'worries'. Worying about fredom n geting paranoid about it isnt that imp 4 comon man".
So I gather two things, that:
a) Hindus must be taught to HATE the truth, since they can't bear to have someone write about the truth as they see it (in this case, someone's view about Gandhi). Hindus are therefore presumably taught to grow up not into men but into cowards and run from a mere piece of paper (book) just because some of it might be true (or might not be). Only cowards hide from the truth. So Hindus are clearly cowards.
b) Hindus must HATE freedom. It would appear that freedom doesn't bother Hindus who are more bothered about petty things like food, gluttony, and corruption.
Now, clearly this is nonsense. And that is why I know that these internet Hindus (and our political parties who purport to promote Hinduism) are pseudo Hindus – cowards who will wilt when asked five questions about Hinduism. Bogus Hindus, a total joke.
Let's get VERY clear about this. Hinduism, as it was designed thousands of years ago, is the greatest philosophy of free thought ever invented in history.
a) Hinduism LIVES FOR THE TRUTH. Satyameva Jayate, it proclaims: the truth always wins. Hinduism DOES NOT HIDE like a coward from the truth.
b) Hinduism LIVES FOR FREEDOM. As Vivekananda said, " ‘Liberty in thought and action is the only condition of life, growth and well-being: Where it does not exist, the man, the race, and the nation must go down.’ Freedom comes above food, gluttony and corruption.
These fake "conservative Hindus" and "internet Hindus" are TOTALLY IGNORANT ABOUT HINDUISM.
They are "conserving" IMAGINED NONSENSE. Shame.
And so, what does the true Hindu do?
The true Hindu does three things (that I strictly follow – regardless of my religious affiliation, which is agnostic):
1) He strives for the truth.
2) He strives for freedom.
3) He does what he sees is the right thing and CARES NOT for the consequences. The right action is seen as its own reward. Nishkama karma.
If that is what Hinduism is – these three things that I've enumerated – then I'm a TRUE Hindu and all these others – RSS/ Modi/ BJP/ Adavani/ "InternetHindus" and many others of their ilk – are TOTALLY FAKE HINDUS.
I challenge these fake Hindus to prove to me that Hinduism requires banning any book.
Stop hiding from the truth, FOOLS!! Stop cowering like cowards from a mere piece of paper. Gandhi could himself have stomached this silly book. What's the big deal? You afraid? You are a COWARD? Mr. Modi? Mr."InternetHindus"?
