CNN-IBN Check their polls

An interesting question by bly243001… who is watching the CNN in India ? They have poll that says that India has not let down Taslima Nasreen, by keeping her as a prisoner just because she wrote of of Muslim atrocity in a land where 20% more hindus are cleansed. As far as Bengali anglicized intellectuals are concerned, Gawd… if one day we can have two more london subway blasts, they will get a reason to introspect on the relation between the masters and dogs.

Washington post and spontaneous combustion.

Reading this post brought some old memories…

This is about a train carrying pilgrims, returning from Ayodhya. The train had elderly ladies, kids…they were almost near their home cities in gujurat. Few Kilometers from Godhra station, the train stopped, few thousands of people surrounded the train, firebombed the compartments carrying pilgrims, and threw stones from outside so that people inside the compartment closes the windows…when a despotic fire burnt them to death.

Few thousands people surrounding the train, throwing stones that could take down teeth from a passenger in a hostile place… or create cracks in his/her head leaving to bleed until the next town…may be a scimitar would prove too strong for the ossified flesh of a passenger near window and pierce through it… the passengers closed the windows when the mob ensured that that the 70 some pilgrims in the train couldn’t get out to open….

For long hours until that evening, there was silence in news about who those gentle people could be, who were putting pudding on the fire that was roasting the pilgrims inside the compartment …This kind of violence was generally unheard of, except in Kashmir…

Justification: Before we could figure out who were those people, there was news such that the pilgrims ( they had ladies and kids in that compartment) were an immoral bunch, who kidnapped a girl from the previous station…

Justification : That the pilgrims didn’t pay for tea from the previous station…

One of these stories were attributed to a Gujurat journalist, a rediff columnist found that the attribution is wrong. Somebody had spread that canard. These justifications were in the muslim ‘brotherhood’ ( brotherhood which has espoused criminal methods to capture and retain power) webpages… somehow it was important for the jehadis to get this rape and non payment story out when all are roasted. had recruited an Indian born india american correspondent, who picked up that story of devious pilgrims…

The problem of justification was that it was too weird… 1000 people gathering in 10 minutes at a remote place, just because somebody didn’t pay money to a tea vendor ?

Then what about the kerosene and other stuff purchased from day before… And all that organization before the day ….

The chain pulling, and then the fight at entrance of a bogey, retreat of the pilgrims inside, outsiders entering through that opening etc… all became public, Magazines like India today gave details of unfortunate events leading to massacre of the pilgrims in Sabarmati.

But this is not accepted by a majority of the press… for them those 1000 people don’t exist other than to rescue a hypothetical girl, or to extract the 1 rupee for the tea vendor.

So, the UPA govt comes to power, they appoint a corrupted communist to probe this matter. When the probe was over, some news papers- liberal they may be- but published an one line column informing Sabarmati was firebombed by a cigarate ! Others concluded Sabaramati had pilgrims who committed suicide by roasting themselves…[They had some ridiculous conclusions from fire tests to quench the scientific desire of the sickular progressive cadres, caders who specialized in history or maoism or islamic way of cleansing population of their life for sake of purity]

Then what these mob were doing there early in the morning ? Were they manufacturing water from the stones, expecting stones and weapons will melt in the terrible fire and soothe the pilgrims burning inside the compartment ?

Those are not the questions…. You had to be an expert to know who were those people who firebombed Sabaramti pilgrims….

There have been books on how the pilgrims were devils…. written by Islamic and sickular scholars. Now washingtonpost – published from the most powerful place of politics- that endorses a spontaneous combusion theory. Spontaneous combustion of Sabaramati pilgrims is synonymous with devious hindu pilgrims, righteous mob, cigarate butt fire bombing Sabarmati etc etc theories.

So  who are those 1000 people mob ? Do we have another spontaneous gathering theory ? Where those 1000 mob and the kerosene used to burn the pilgrims arrived spontaneously ?

Rajeev Srinivasan

Will Durant was an historian , who has written a history series with 10 really big books. A person with that kind of literature survey might be a giant and famous one in his days, Here is a website, they may have more info. I had browsed his books in a library….though the first volume on India was missing.

That Durant could be a little known fraud was subject of a quest in an internet discussion board. The issue was that Durant had written something something positive and good on Bharata. Such independent good are intolerable for sickular progressives…They dislike Bharat could have an independent thought, not obeying the dictates of progressivism fixation. Supposing a thought existed in the mind of a villager, while he crossed a meadow in Indian in 1000AD, Seckular progressivism would require that thought to be

1) Irrational deviations from modernity,

2) or be described by its formulations of racial history,

3) or else the thought be secular progressive, dishing out imagery of serious racial violence, less than utopia.


A search revealed that MK Gandhi, RN Tagore etc had used quotes ( Atleast one each) from Durrants works in pre independence days. Atleast one book of Durrant is banned :

And this is not the first volume, I mentioned above missing from the library.

It is interesting that I found out the banned books of historical importance, because a sickular progressive was trying to belittle an unknown Will Durrant. But that shows the kind of search and destroy operation in which the so called progressives were/are indulged in. Finest thoughts weredragged in streets, if that stood on way of elusive sickular progressivism being declared as the final liberator.

During all this Rajeev Srinivasan has been an observer criticizing this new trend of imperialism. Rajeev could write good about his motherland, he could write good about India. The best I liked about Rajeev is that he refuted the progressive formulation that the world is only around 4000 years old, where history could be starting from 1000BCE for India ( For Talibans they started at 700CE). I think the progressives lose power to control the thought of their subjects, if the history of rational human universe extends another few thousands years.

Rajeev’s articles have a flow, it stands out ( Atleast for those who know the details) alone, fighting graciously on its own in hostile territories. I would like a section in this blog for his posts.

You are welcome to post a comment here, Rajeev. I will let you know the existence of this blog sometime.
