NOTE ON THE SITE IMAGE:
The flag is not the flag of India, but a symbolic construct that captures the agenda of the axis of the Indian Communists, Christian Missionaries and Islamist Organizations in USA and in India. I do not mean to offend any of my fellow patriotic Indians.
This site is the online version and further extension of a report titled Forum of Intentional Liars: The Indian Communist/Christian Missionary/Islamist Nexus and Its Anti-Hindu/Anti-India Agenda, which was published on July 31, 2011. The report is available here to download.
The report is a result of almost a year of information gathering, research and discussions. I am grateful to the efforts of all those who have written big and small works exposing the vitriolic agenda of the nexus of Communists/Christian Missionaries/Islamists.
This site is a humble attempt to shed light on individuals and organizations that work hand-in-glove to demonize Hinduism and India through their views, writings and activities. In this respect, two broad themes come forward:
First, in what is a dangerously growing and alarming trend, this nexus attempts to influence (and is many a times successful) policy makers in large Western nations to intervene in internal matters related to India via sanctions, censures or for to provide funds to NGOs that work under the pretense of highlighting ‘human rights violations’ or providing ‘humanitarian relief’. This nexus not only supports the concept of a violent civil war in India but supports and even funds terrorist groups like the Naxals.
To corroborate this point, on Tuesday, July 19, 2011, the New York Times broke the following story: the Federal Bureau of Investigation of the US arrested Fai on charges of being an agent of the Pakistani spy agency the ISI. Neil MacBride, the US Attorney in the Eastern District of Virginia, in filing the charges, accused Fai of a ‘decades-long scheme with one purpose — to hide Pakistan’s involvement behind his efforts to influence the U.S. government’s position on Kashmir.’ MacBride also maintained that ‘[his] handlers in Pakistan allegedly funneled millions through the Kashmir Center to contribute to U.S. elected officials, fund high-profile conferences and pay for other efforts that promoted the Kashmiri cause to decision-makers in Washington.’ Similarly, the FBI stated that group’s objective was ‘to persuade the United States government that it was in its interest to push India to allow a vote in Kashmir to decide its future’. Fai was a popular figure among Communist/Leftist circles and was invited to a 2003 meeting by Friends of South Asia, a sister organization of the Forum of Indian/Inqualabi Lefists (FOIL).
Furthermore, the site brings forth the political links of the Indian Leftists in the US. Under the guise of ‘progressive’, ‘secular’, ‘pluralistic’ work, these organizations and individuals are nothing more than the ambassadors of political parties such as the Communist Party of India (Marxist) and the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist), both known for their violent histories and atrocities against their populace. While the western Leftists are mostly at odds with Christian Missionaries and Islamists, the Indian Leftists actually support and work with Christian Missionaries and Islamists to paint India as an oppressor of minorities, especially Christians, Muslims and Dalits. To achieve this goal, they exaggerate facts and provide highly out of context testimonials and go on ‘fact-finding’ missions to gather data for their theses.
As shown, even organizations such as the Association for India’s Development (AID) and Asha for Education are a part of this nexus. The site provides details of the Communist/Marxist leanings of these organizations and how they work with groups and political parties whose members have been prosecuted for criminal activities or whose members have had a history of violent behaviors and terrorist tendencies. It is even more disturbing that the American donors (including well-meaning Indian Americans) and volunteers of these organizations may not know the political and ideological leanings of these organizations because most have a soft corner for India. In the name of education and development, these organizations actually work to groom innocent kids and unsuspecting individuals in Marxist/Communist ideology.
Secondly, this nexus contains powerful players that have shaped the way Hinduism is studied, viewed, discussed and reported in today’s world, including in India. Hinduism is frequently reduced to a foreign religion of ‘fair-skinned’ people that attacked and subdued the native ‘black’ population of the Indian subcontinent through its ‘Brahminical practices’ and the Caste System. Hinduism is thus seen as an oppressive religion that needs to be abolished and whose people need to be ‘saved’; anything good in Hinduism (e.g. Yoga, Bhagavad Gita, Karma, Reincarnation, etc.) has been misappropriated from other religions or regions (i.e. Buddhism, Christianity, etc. or from Europe) and should therefore be looked at with suspicion.
Several Islamic and Christian organizations and individuals support the efforts of these Communists/Marxists in many ways by: a) Providing funds from foreign governments and religious bodies; b) Inviting them to prestigious or popular conferences, seminars, etc.; c) Publishing documentaries and holding screening of movies that highlight the ‘atrocities’ against Christians, Muslims and Dalits; d) Supporting their appointments to key posts in the academia as well as in politics and media; e) Distributing their venomous writings and views throughout the internet, in the media, in political circles and in the academia; and e) Partnering up with them to lodge protests, petitions, etc. against the Indian government or against various Hindu organizations accusing the latter two of ‘fascism’, ‘extremism’, ‘human rights abuse’, etc.
Together, this nexus has attacked several Indian and Hindu organizations and have attempted to eradicate their existence by false propaganda. For example, in 2002, FOIL and its affiliates attacked the India Development and Relief Fund, accusing it of ‘funding hatred in India”. In 2007 and in 2008, FOIL and its affiliates went on a rampage to destroy the US based youth group Hindu Students Council, accusing it of ‘fascism’ and ‘right wing extremism’. The attack on the HSC was particularly dangerous since FOIL attempted to confuse young Hindus and persuade them to disown the HSC by its half-truths and out of context statements.
The bigotry practiced by the nexus becomes evident when well-meaning Indians or Hindu Americans point out their blatantly inaccurate statements and their political and extremist connections. When Indians and Hindu Americans ask for a balanced opinion or for including an alternative opinion, they are often discounted or denounced as ‘fascist Hindutva’ types or ‘anti-secular’.
