Last week while the Feminists of India were busy waxing eloquent on forged videos attacking Yogi Adityanath on fake charges of ‘hate speech’, their beloved Bangladesh went ahead and gave, what is essentially, a blanket permission to rape Hindu and Buddhist women- provided the rapist ‘agrees’ to marry the victim.
Here we must remind Readers that in inter-religious marriages in Bangladesh- as in India- only Islamic law applies.
Interestingly- such a proclamation comes on the heels of massive protests led by the Hefazat-e-Islam which has threatened to have all Hindus in Bangladesh ‘uprooted’ if a sculpture of Lady Justice in front of the Bangladesh Supreme Court isn’t removed at once- even though one wonders just how Hindus could’ve influenced the statue’s installation in any manner. What does ‘uprooted’ mean here? If Kashmir- or Pakistan and Bangladesh itself- can be used as a guide, it’s simple- kill the men, rape the women. Even in distant Japan, Foreign correspondent L J Walker of the Modern Tokyo Times writes: – ‘Bangladesh and Pakistan would witness the gradual Islamization of their societies, notably Pakistan, and massive corruption and persecution of women would continue. The Islamization of both nations was especially traumatic for Hindus and Sikhs in Pakistan and for Hindus and Buddhists in Bangladesh.‘
It is common knowledge- no matter how taboo such statements in public society- that most brothels in Bangladesh have historically been filled with either Hindu or Buddhist women. Islam, in a strict legal sense in most schools, has no real concept of prostitution or even non-vaginal sex. Despite work-arounds like ‘Muta’- or ‘temporary marriage’, it is easier for most Pakistanis and Bangladeshis- or other Islamic states- to use ‘Kaffir’ women as sex slaves to sate their lusts.
A major reason for Hindu refugees fleeing to India from Pakistan are kidnapping of daughters to serve as sex slaves in Pakistani brothels.
Rape of Bangladeshi Hindu women is so common that only Liberals and Feminists can ignore the crisis. In Northern and Eastern Bangladesh, whole-scale ethnic cleansing of the Hill tribes is going on, unchallenged with mass settlement of Muslim Bengalis in hill areas, extermination of male hill tribes, and rape and abduction of hill women. It is an open secret that countries like the Philippines and Sri Lanka have put restrictions on the travel of their female citizens to the Gulf States, on account of the widespread reports of kidnapping, rape, and sexual assault reported at the hands of Muslim Arabs.
Back in 2011, Daily Mail’s Melanie Phillips wrote: ‘Back in 2007, The Hindu Forum of Britain claimed that hundreds of Hindu and Sikh girls had been intimidated by Muslim men who took them on dates before terrorising them until they converted. And the Sikh Media Monitoring group described ‘the deliberate and targeted sexual degradation of Sikh women purely because of their religion’ and how a minority of young Muslim men boasted about ‘seducing the Kaffir (unbeliever) women’…’
That Indians, for most part, remain unaware of such ‘widespread’ reports is a testament to the advances made by Indian Feminists in the public domain. Recently the European Organization of Pakistani Minorities (EOPM) drew attention to the widespread trafficking of Hindu women in Pakistan, where they are being drafted in rape camps run by the Pakistani Army to serve as Sex slaves. According to EOPM, ‘Christians, Sikhs, Hindus and other minorities are constant targets of attacks in Pakistan, it said, citing Minority Rights Group International, a watchdog organisation.’
Instead what Hindus get are repeated attacks on their cultures and beliefs.
Holi is an excuse for molesters to harass women, cries one media outlet. On a popular Q&A Social forum, Feminists debate about how Raksha Bandhan is a vehicle of Patriarchy and must be banned. Elsewhere, a prominent Feminist user in the same forum describes the Indian system of Family and Parenthood is ‘the direct result of oppression of women. And when something is built on such a foundation, it deserves to die.’
Why such ire for Hinduism?
Why Hinduism- which, alone in all major world faiths, has space for growth, development, and reform? Why Hinduism- which, alone in all World faiths, has no hidebound laws and thus is most suited for modernity? Why Hinduism- which, alone in all World faiths, has no concept of ideological warfare?
The answer is simple.
Most Indian Feminists suffer from an inferiority complex as well as a superiority complex. (We shall ignore Communists- who are often associated with Feminism- for now; let it suffice to be said that there can be no better argument against their vile ideas than the millions killed by their cousins in Russia, China, Cambodia, West Bengal, Kerala, Yemen, Cuba, North Korea etc etc. The Communist’s very existence is an assault on Humanity).
However the very same Communists give us the perfect term to describe Feminists in context of Islam- ‘The Useful Idiots’. According to Vladimir Lenin, a useful idiot denoted a person perceived as a propagandist for a cause whose goals they are not fully aware of, and who is used cynically by the leaders of the cause. In Lenin’s case, it referred to the intellectuals of Academia and Media who supported the Gulag-building Soviet Union over their own United States of America. These intellectuals persisted in their crazed support of Communism- even though, in many cases, they were aware of the Soviets denied their citizens the same Freedoms and the Rights that allowed these ‘useful idiots’ to play havoc with American society.
The same applies for Indian Feminists.
At the heart of Indian Feminist theory- conveniently lifted from Western Feminists, lies the idea of Patriarchy. The problem is this- if we look for societies that define the opposite of ‘Patriarchy’- the so-called ‘Matriarchy’ where administrative and military power is tied to Women, we find that none have ever got past the Stone Age. Instead, we find that ‘Matriarchies’ are, most often, to be seen in undeveloped societies where there is no division of labour- the basis of modern economic thought, and no concept of sophisticated politics- necessary for creating complex societies.
Readers here will point to the example of Kerala in India- or that of the success of multiple female rulers such as Empress Catherine the Great of Russia or the Vakataka queen Prabhavati Gupta who held the regency over most of the Deccan for nearly twenty years, but they forget the key assumption here: – All examples ultimately derived their power from Institutions that directly enforced Social roles associated with ‘Patriarchies’.
It is evident that the reason ‘Patriarchies’ are ubiquitous while ‘Matriarchies’ aren’t, is simple. What Feminists, in their ignorance, call ‘Patriarchy’ is more accurately defined as ‘Civilization’.
Instead of challenging lacunae and fallacies in the existing Social structures- which, Readers should remember, are largely based on a Biblical system of jurisprudence over most of the World- Feminists have gone and thrown the baby out of the bathwater by declaring Civilization itself to be the preserve of Men. Thus, we find that Modern Feminism, in contrast to the original ideas of Equal Rights that once prevailed, increasingly shares the same disdain for structured Society, Cultural stability, and Economic Specialization that Communists do as well.
And this isn’t surprising once one learns that modern Feminism was ‘created’ by the Communist Party of America in the 1960s, according to Dr Little of the University of Michigan.
Thus, we find that the end goal of Feminism as whole, irrespective of whatever good idea its adherents might have, ultimately merge into blind hatred of their parent cultures, a hatred based on ignorance and distortion of their past. Unlike Islam or Christianity, where ideological stringency and, not to forget, the constant threat of violence, keeps reform at bay, the tolerance and permissibility of Hinduism has been exploited so much that the same tolerance and permissibility has all but run out.
The Hindu today is denuded not only of moral fibre, but also cultural backbone.
Few today read the Epics- the Ramayana, the Mahabharata, the Raghuvamsa, and others. Fewer read their own history. This is especially prevalent among women; as an Oriya, I have met merely four Oriya women who could name even three Oriya kings of old- and all of them were ‘uneducated’ by modern Indian standards.
Hindus have stopped celebrating their own festivals. Witness how the Feminists in the links we have posted painted something as sacred as Raksha Bandhan as ‘patriarchal’, ‘oppressive’, and ‘incestuous’.
Hindus increasingly take the works of Amish Tripathis and Pratibha Rays over Valmiki and Vyasa because they like the posh, two-faced, English-speaking intellectuals over the humble, dhoti-clad saints who championed Dharma over Wealth.
Modern Hindus have created an India where calling Shri Rama a ‘misogynist’ is a sign of progress, reading fan fiction is a sign of erudition, calling Arya thought itself Fascism the epitome of civilization. In the past, Indian women such as Kamandaki and Gangadevi wrote political treatises, epic poetry, and military texts. These days, modern feminists in India stain their trousers with period blood and claim it as art. I wonder what the princesses of the city of Padmavati, whose paintings were so richly praised by Bhavabhuti 1200 years ago, would have to say on this ‘Art’.
Calls for Rights have been twisted into excuses for Depravity. Please against Inequality have transformed into excuses for Ignorance.
Why should the educated Feminists and Liberals bother if Hindu women become nothing more than property across vast tracts of Pakistan, Bangladesh, and even India? Why bother as human trafficking of Women from India to the Gulf rises to alarming proportions? Why bother as reports of gang rapes trickle out from the wastes of rural West Bengal, ruled over by communists and Jihadis?
No- instead, they have to whine about the absence of Kebabs- made from untested, potentially life-threatening, illegal meat. They have to whine about ‘Moral policing’ by Yogi Adityanath’s Anti-Romeo squads- a dire necessity in a state like UP where moral degeneracy has made life difficult for the real women of India- the humble working class lady on the street and the fields. They have to fantasize about being kept as a piece of meat in the harems of Sultans. Which is probably why such feminist women gush over the Mughal Emperor Jehangir in whose case, ‘each women in the harem was either trained in a particular craft according to her aptitude and talent, or was appointed to some high position.’ Or for their praise for Sultan Ghiyas-ud-Din where,’ Only women with the keenest intellect were to join king Ghiyas at his meals every day, in order to discuss matters of theology and philosophy.’
‘Theology and Philosophy’ in a harem. We Hindus, clearly, were fools to be building universities like Nalanda and Takshila in that case. To think of it- maybe now we can understand why Indian feminists are so silent about sexual slavery and human trafficking of their cousins.
Well- everyone has their own tastes… If only they’d stop advertising them so.
