“I Am A Proud “Hindoo” and I Need Kashi Vishwanath and Krishna Janmasthan”
By RKB
Whenever a Hindu begins to assert his own “Hindoo” identity why is he labelled a fascist, Sanghi, Hindutvawadi and so on?
The liberal definition of a Hindu is one who ought to be embarrassed of his/her own Hindu-ness!
Notice our most respected and academically learned friend Mr Salman Khurshid’s analogy of Hindutva with Islamic State (ISIS) and Boko Haram!
I support the construction of the Ram Mandir at Ayodhya (always have right from 1987) so I am labelled an RSS gunda; I want the Kashi Vishwanath Mandir restored so I become a Modi loyalist and I want the Krishna Janmashtan to be reconstructed and reconstituted as the birthplace of Lord Krishna and I am labelled a Khaki chaddi (forgetting the fact that the RSS abandoned the Khaki shorts in favour of pants sometime back)
India has changed
The Hindu per se is no longer the timid creature who will not protest at mosques blaring out the call to prayer 5 times a day on amplifiers turned up to full volume or the blatant takeover of public roads and public squares for Friday prayers!
Point is simple!
If mosques are allowed LOUD AZAAN 5 times a day temples will blare out the Aarti 6 times a day, Gurudwaras will have Shabad Kirtan on equally noisy loudspeakers every hour!
If a Hindu is told no firecrackers on Diwali because there is no reference to firecrackers in the Valmiki Ramayan then there is no reference to loudspeakers in The Holy Koran either!
What’s sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander!
Now to business
The Krishna Janmashtan Temple and Kashi Vishwanath Mandir (home to the original Jyotirlingam)
The Krishna Janmasthan complex of temples was first destroyed by Mahmud of Ghazni and later again by our old friend the Gabbar Singh of the Mughal Empire namely Emperor Aurangzeb
So when are we getting all that back?
There has to be restitution for all the temples destroyed and mosques built in their place!
Let’s look at a bit of history then…
In 1017 or 1018, Mahmud of Ghazni attacked and plundered Mahaban (Mathura) Ghazni’s scribe, though not accompanying him on the expedition, Al Utbi describes in his Tarikh-i-Yamini neighbouring holy town which is identified as Mathura.
He wrote, “In the centre of the city there was a huge and magnificent temple, which the people believed wasn’t built by men but by the angels… Any description of the temple, either in words or in pictures, would fall short and fail to convey its beauty.” Mahmud of Ghazni wrote, “if any one wished to construct a building equal to it, he would not be able to do so without spending a hundred million dinars, and the work would occupy two hundred years, even though the most able and experienced workmen were employed.”
He ordered to burn all the temples and demolish them. He plundered gold and silver idols and carried away a load of hundred camels.
A stone inscription in Sanskrit found from the site mentions that in Vikrama Samvat 1207 a person named Jajja who may have been a vassal of Gahadavala king built a Vishnu temple which was ‘brilliantly white and touching the clouds’.
Vaishnava saints Chaitanya Mahaprabhu and Vallabhacharya visited Mathura in early 16th century.
Abdullah, in the reign of Mughal emperor Jehangir, mentions in Tarikh-i-Daudi the destruction of Mathura and its temples by Delhi Sultan Sikandar Lodi in 16th century.
Lodi had prohibited Hindus from bathing in the river and shaving of heads on the banks as well.
In the reign of Jehangir, in 1618, Raja Veer Singh Deva Bundela of Orchha had built a temple at the cost of thirty-three lakhs.
A French traveller Tavernier visited Mathura in 1650 and had described the octagonal temple built in red sand stone.
Italian traveller Niccolao Manucci who worked in the Mughal court has also described the temple.
Mughal prince Dara Shikoh had patronised the temple and donated a railing to the temple.
The railing was removed by Mathura governor Abdun Nabi Khan on the order of Mughal emperor Aurangzeb and he built the Jama mosque on the ruins of the Hindu temples. During the Jat rebellion in Mathura, Abdul Nabi Khan was killed in 1669.
Aurangzeb attacked Mathura and destroyed the Keshavdeva temple in 1670 and built the Shahi Eidgah in its place
So when are we getting it back?
Point is as “Hindoos” (or Yindoos) to ask for restoration of our temples destroyed, the idols desecrated and a new Islamic structure built upon it immediately classifies us as communal, anti-secular, Islamophobes!
Islamophobes?
To ask for our our temples destroyed and desecrated makes me an Islamophobe?
The Santa Sophia, the most magnificent Christian Cathedral of the Eastern Roman Empire in Constantinople now reconsecrated a mosque in Istanbul draws no criticism from this lot of liberal perverts!
Call me whatever you want
We have Ram Janmabhoomi at Ayodhya
We need Vishwanath at Kashi
And yes, we need Krishna Janmasthan at Mathura
For the rest we are not talking about it now
Work with your countrymen, show generosity of spirit and reconciliation…and everyone is at peace!
