Hindu Media - A Mirage

Hindu Media - A Mirage
P. Deivamuthu, Editor, Hindu Voice

On and off, I do receive letters from readers moaning about the absence of a Hindu media. Many times, intensive discussions are held on the net on the subject. Hence, I thought of putting my thoughts.

From my experience as the editor of Hindu Voice and National Spirit, I can definitely say that a Hindu Media is a mirage. A few individuals like me may undertake the work and run the show for sometime, but collective efforts will not succeed, due to the ego problem existing among Hindus. Who will own it and wield supreme is the daunting question.

Before we talk of developing a Hindu Media, we should analyse why the existing Hindu media is not growing or folded up.

1. Jain TV was owned by Dr. J.K. Jain, who was a BJP MP. Why it folded up? Was there any ego problem between Dr. Jain and BJP leaders? Did the BJP leaders think that a media baron may get name and fame and supersede them?

2. Zee TV is owned by Shri Subhash Chandra, a BJP man. Why does it not support Hindutva? Is there any ego problem between Subhash Chandra and BJP leaders? Or is it that Zee TV feels that Hindutva will not sell and they will not be able to survive in the market unless they are 'secular'?

3. Sudarshan TV is owned by Shri Suresh Chavhanke. His channel is being broadcast but could be seen only in some places in and around Delhi. I met Suresh ji sometime back at Hotel Taj President at Colaba, Mumbai. After checking in, he surfed for Sudarshan TV. When he could not find it, he called the manager and questioned him. The manager immediately called the concerned engineer and asked him to do the needful. Within half an hour, Sudershan TV could be watched in Taj President Hotel, Mumbai. When I met him in his room, I too watched it. But I am not able to watch it in my home. The Multi-System Operators refuse to catch its signal, unless paid in crores.

Recently, I watched his programme BINDAS BOL (say freely) on the net about Soharabuddin case. Sureshji was fully supporting the Hindutva cause. He was supporting Narendra Modi to the hilt. But how many Hindu industrialists or Hindu organisations are going to help him to effectively run the show? Will the Gujarat government or Narendra Modi help him? I am sure, NOBODY WILL.

4. The Pioneer, Delhi, a daily newspaper, is fully supporting Hindu cause. I do not know if any Hindu businessmen or Hindu organisations help it grow. I even doubt whether those Hindus who are active on the net are buying its hard copy, to boost up its sales.

5. There are many magazines being run by Hindus all over the country, in English, Hindi and local languages. Why are they not being subscribed for in lakhs, if not in millions?

6. I have been running Hindu Voice since April 2002, and have launched National Spirit since April 2010. How many Hindu industrialists or Hindu organisations are supporting me. NO BODY (except a few honourable exceptions - some in India and some NRIs).

What I want to say is that Hindus themselves, except a few out of the many who are moaning on the net, do not support Hindu media. Look at the following example.

A few months back RSS Chief Shri Mohan Bhagwat Ji visited Kollam, Kerala. About one lakh Swayamsevak in full uniform attended the function. Another about one lakh citizens also attended to listen to his inspiring speech. Even if 20% of these two lakh start buying Janmabhoomi , a Malayalam daily promoting Hindutva, its sales would boom. But how many Hindus in Kerala buy Janmabhoomi? Compare this with Saamna in Mumbai. Almost all Shiv Sainiks buy Saamna, which makes it not only survive but thrive. Same is the case with other ideologically committed newspapers - be it of Communists, Christians or Muslims. They all buy 'their' paper, but Hindus DON'T, because they are 'secular'. Hindus will buy anti-Hindu papers and watch anti-Hindu Channels, but not those espousing Hindutva. Hindus would prefer to put their moneys in a Hundi in a temple, to be usurped by the Govt, rather than giving it for a genuine Hindu cause or service. Then how do you expect Hindu media to survive, leave alone thriving?

I said collective efforts will not succeed. I have reason to say this. I was the Managing Editor of Hindu Muzhakkam (Garjana), a Tamil monthly launched by VHP, Mumbai. After running it for four years, I had to give up my responsibility, and it became defunct (not due to financial problem), although we got RNI No., Postal Permission, etc. A sense of oneness is lacking when a group is formed. When someone starts working with a sense of belonging, there are a few to demoralise and deride him. This is a general problem every where, I hope. A feeling that the Editor is growing more than the Organisation is lurking among the other members of the organisation, which is but natural.

Many Hindus who talk of Hindu Media are vague and confused - Who will own it? Who will practically work on the project? Who will finance it? What about the risk involved? etc. Many Hindus even think that they have the knowledge/concept and someone should implement it with other's money. Some even think that everything should be done under their command, except the financial aspect. Simply speaking, Hindus do not want to part with their money for Hindu cause. Nor do they want to read papers and magazines promoting Hindutva to come out of their cultivated ignorance. I have come across Hindus who have discontinued their subscription to Hindu Voice. The reason - when they read Hindu Voice, their peace of mind is disturbed. Yes, telling the truth and the danger that is going to engulf their children is disturbing their peace! Their attitude is like that of a pigeon, which thinks that if it closes its eyes, the cat will not pounce on it!

Sometimes I am pained to see an individual, who a few years ago was a Hindu and converted to Christianity and became a Pastor, has earned name and fame. Not only that, he brings out a magazine of say 48 pages, all in multi-colour, and prints at least a lakh copies and sends them to his followers. In Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Andhra Pradesh, there are dozens of such Pastors. Every one just forms a 'Sabha' and prints lakhs of copies of his Sabha Magazine. Compared to them, I am ashamed of my inability to even survive, leave alone thriving. Definitely, I am not responsible for this, but Hindus jointly are.

One reason for Hindus not forthcoming to support an individual may be that the individual may discard him once he gets name and fame. It has happened in some cases. But unless rich Hindus take the risk of trusting and supporting someone fighting for Hindu causes, how can we build a Hindu Media?

I conclude - Hindu Media is a mirage. It is just impossible. If my belief is turned out to be wrong, I would be happy.

But still there is some silver lining - to take Hindutva messages to millions of people through the electronic media. Apart from Sudarshan TV
I mentioned above, there are new TV channels who are willing to carry our message. A2Z is a news channel run by a Sadak of Sant Asaram Bapu. The RKB Show in Lemon TV (of Rajiv Bajaj) is giving space to Hindutva views. As it is, Aastha and Sanskar channels are carrying Swami Ram Dev's Bharat Swabhiman's message. Shankara TV of Kanchi Madam is also propagating Santan Hindu Dharm. With the help of these limited exposure, Hindutva message can be taken to millions. Hindus who are complaining of the absence of Hindu media, should propagate these Channels among their friends circle so that more and more people start watching these channels.

However, having an English TV channel similar to NDTV or CNN-IBN is a far cry. Church Money and Petro Dollars freely flow to them to carry on their anti-Hindu and anti-India agenda. Can a Hindu media expect such a free flow of money from any quarter? Just impossible.

Hindu Journalists & Intellectuals Forum

(A NGO promoted by Hindu Voice and Registered under the Bombay Public Trust Act, 1950)
Regn. No. E-25872(M) dtd. 15th July 2009

1. Does the GoI consider Indians as potential criminals?
Just before the Allahabad High Court was to give its verdict on 30th Sept. 2010 on the Ramjanmabhoomi-Babri Structure issue, the Govt. of India came out with large advertisements in all leading newspapers asking people to maintain peace. The Prime Minister and the Home Minister came on TV, and advised people to maintain calm. The home ministry identified several sensitive areas where trouble could erupt. A huge troop mobilisation was made. Even Air Force helicopters were pressed into service and Rapid Action Forces were kept ready to be moved to troubled spots. There was a virtual fear psychosis created across the country. Many MNCs and offices closed their shops for the day, and declared holiday. The loss to the economy due to this self-imposed curfew is enormous. The roads, bus stops, railway stations and the markets wore a deserted look.
This is when both the litigants guaranteed calm, and if they have grievances they will appeal to the Supreme Court. Promises were made prominently by the RSS chief Shri Mohanji Bhagvat, and others on the Hindu side. So too the Sunni Waqf Board and Muslim leaders made assurance that they will maintain peace, and will resort to legal recourse.
The judgement has come. As promised, both Hindus and Muslims have maintained peace. There is no untoward incidents all over this vast nation.
Under these circumstances, Hindu Journalists & Intellectuals Form feels that the Government of India owes an explanation to the nation as to what made them to create this fear psychosis among the people. What was the need to take out such large advertisements appealing for peace? Whom were they afraid of creating trouble, when both the parties had assured peace? What was the necessity to mobilise even our Air Force? Does the Government of India consider its citizens as potential criminals and trouble makers? Was it done on the basis of any Intelligence Reports? All these questions need answers from the Govt.
The inference of the common man is that the Government of India has ended up with egg on its face. The people have shown enough maturity. But the Government has not.
2. SAHMAT trying to disturb communal harmony
While the parties to the dispute have maintained peace, a fringe organisation named SAHMAT has come out with a Statement on Ayodhya Verdict dated 1st October 2010 with a view to creating communal tension. The statement is signed by 61 'intellectuals' and 'eminent historians', many of whom are holding cozy govt. and semi-government positions and are enjoying government perks. They seem to be unhappy at the communal peace prevailing after the judgement.
The statement reads that "we cannot but see the judgement as yet another blow to the secular fabric of our country". Hindu Journalists & Intellectuals Forum demands from Sahmat, in what way the judgement tears the secular fabric of the country? Secularism will be alive and kicking as long as Hindus are strong and in the majority. That is why when the Constitution was framed, none of the Hindu leaders insisted on the word 'secularism' in its Preamble. Only Smt. Indira Gandhi included it during emergency to fool the people, as though secularism was not existing from 1947 till 1975. That it has today come to mean as 'minority appeasement' is a different matter.
By stating that "The most objectionable part of the judgement is the legitimation it provides to violence and muscle-power" and "it accepts the destruction of the mosque in 1992", SAHMAT is trying to mislead the general public. The case in question was a civil suit. The question of demolition of Babri structure on 6th Dec. 1992 is an alleged criminal act and was out of the purview of this court.
SAHMAT's statement questions the findings of the Archeological Survey of India and calls it controversial. In fact, most of the signatories to the statement have all along been fooling the public by twisting the history of India and Hindus. The Allahabad High Court judgement has proved that they are all liars. The judgement has exposed them and therefore they are running helter-skelter. The ASI excavated the site in the presence of two judicial officers and many witnesses, many of whom were Muslims. Look at what Justice Sudhir Agarwal has stated in his judgement, "In our view, the conclusion drawn by the ASI in the project accomplished within an extra-ordinary brief period and with such an excellence precision and perfection deserve commendation and appreciation instead of condemnation." But SAHMAT thinks otherwise!
When even Muslim do not dispute that Lord Ram existed or that he was born in Ayodhya, the signatories to the statement have always been raising the canard of 'absence of evidence'. Although eminent persons like Shri Arun Shourie, Dr. Koenraad Elst, Dr.David Frawley, Late Shri Sita Ram Goel , Late Shri Ram Swarup, Dr. N.S. Rajaram etc., have exposed these "Eminences" in their respective works, they (the 'Eminences') have always been able to 'get away' with their 'fabrications' of our history and our civilizational ethos. It has taken nearly 60 years for Hindus to legally prove their (Hindus') claims and expose these lies. And they are now furious that the Allahabad High Court has refused to put its stamp of approval on all their fabrications and lies.
By casting aspersions on the AHC judgement, SAHMAT and the 61 'intellectuals' and 'eminent historians' who have signed the Statement have done an act which amounts to contempt of court. Hindu Journalists & Intellectuals Forum appeals to the Supreme Court that it take suo moto action against all those signatories and the communal organisation, SAHMAT. These people must be proscribed and given exemplary punishment, for attempting to rekindle communal frenzy.
3. The supreme Court has already decided 'not to decide'
Both the litigants have declared that they will go to the Supreme Court. However, the Supreme Court has already decided 'not to decide' on this case. On 7th January 1993, the President of India referred the issue to the Supreme Court for a decision. The Presidential reference read: "Whether a Hindu Temple or any religious structure existed prior to the construction of the Ramjanmabhoomi–Babri Masjid (including the premises of the inner and outer courtyards of such structure) in the areas on which the structure stood?"

Chief Justice of India M.N. Venkatachaliah, Justice J.S. Verma and Justice G.N. Ray together signed a judgement dated 24th October 1994, which said, in para 100(11): "We very respectfully decline to answer it and return the same". Justice A.M. Ahmadi and Justice S.P. Bharucha gave their judgement on the same day. Para 165 of their judgement read: "The Presidential Reference is returned respectfully, unanswered". Haven't they already decided 'not to decide'?

Therefore, Hindu Journalists & Intellectuals Forum appeals to all concerned that the Allahabad High Court's verdict be treated as the end of the judicial process in this issue.

4. The government's word:

Those who opposed the presidential reference dated 7th January 1993 said the question was academic and vague and did not serve any constitutional purpose. The Supreme Court asked the solicitor-general to clarify. The solicitor-general responded with a written statement on behalf of the central government on September 14, 1994. He said the government would treat the finding of the court on the question of fact raised in the presidential reference as a verdict which is final and binding. Government's action in this regard will be even-handed in respect of both the communities. If the question referred is answered in the affirmative, namely, that a Hindu temple/structure did exist prior to the construction of the demolished structure, government action will be in support of the wishes of the Hindu community.

Now that the AHC has unanimoulsy upheld the FACT that a Hindu Temple pre-dated the Babri structure and since the Government of India had given a written undertaking to the Supreme Court on 14th Sept. 1994, the Hindu Journalists & Intellectuals Forum demands that the UPA Govt. now honour its word.

5. Shia-Sunni dispute

But what is surprising is that while the Shia Muslims are magnanimous in offering the entire site for constructing a Ram Temple, it is the Sunni Muslims who are on the war path. Babar was a Shia Muslim and the Babri structure was a Shia structure. Shias and Sunnis are having separate Mosques and Graveyards. One does not go to the other. Then how can Sunni Muslims fight for this Shia structure? In fact, Sunni Muslims are bombing Shia mosques and killing Shia Muslims in Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iraq. But in India, they ostensibly come to the rescue of Shia Muslims when Shias themselves don't want them.

6. Make law for building the Temple.

Hindu Journalists & Intellectuals Forum is all for a negotiated settlement of the dispute. Since Shia Muslims are already ready, the Sunni Muslims should give up their claim on the 1/3 plot and pave the way for building a magnificent Ram Temple at Ayodhya. In the absence of any negotiated settlement, Hindu Journalists & Intellectuals Forum demands that the parliament pass a law giving the entire disputed land to Hindus for building the temple for Sri Ram.

National Spirit - The Change We Need
Sharad Mistry

Nations thrive, prosper and even become invincible with the individual and collective spirit of unity of its nationals while others remain poor, weak and vulnerable because of the lack of this spirit. Within six decades of independence India has emerged as the world's largest functioning democracy with its economy a whopping $1 trillion plus and such that it is now increasingly seen as the strong economic anchor (along with China) as also spiritual destination for the global economy that gropes for solutions to survive beyond 21st century.

In the world of dualities, the political India's sovereignty is being challenged both from within and across the borders with instances of terrorist and separatist activities rising by the day. These are glaring pointers to what needs to be done to see India in the first category - a thriving, prosperous and invincible nation.

Is India's situation the result of the willfully ignoring by its politicians and the peoples the country's very vital core, its soul? If a human being cannot survive without the soul, how can a nation whose soul - vibrant, pulsating, enlivening Spirituality - is grossly debunked and ignored by the increasingly materialist West loving country?

Individuals make the society they live in and politicians, bureaucrats, industrialists, businessmen, media persons, lawyers, economists, scholars, thinkers, saints, teachers, parents, students, heads and workers of innumerable private and public institutions, et all coming from this myriad mix of individuals with the spirit of unity and purpose contribute individually and collectively to make a political mass of land into a prosperous, thriving and invincible Nation.

If political India is to really attain its hidden potentialities, it is important to accept, digest and then unleash the power of a unique combination of reviving and strengthening its weakened soul and to reignite the National Spirit. It is this Change We Need if we as a Nation are to emerge effectively in a world that is sold to the scientific outlook and market economy - both of which have contributed to push the Mankind to the brink of annihilation.

Even as the world gropes in the dark for solutions of survival, it is ironic and pitiable both that it has little options but to be led by the paupered USA and its fast weakening allies. At this critical juncture, the world is also terrorized increasingly by the religious fanatics forcing the silent majority to seriously think and work individually and collectively on the following points:

National Spirit: The concept of a Nation State may have begun to change with the non-state actors turning more aggressive and wielding more clout than the State actors, in many a countries including India. This situation calls for increased awareness and collective efforts to effectively counter this menace by recognizing and strengthening the ethnic and original peoples on the country. The great nations of the world - Germany, France, USA, Israel, Singapore, China, Japan and many more - have all respected the identity of the peoples and their ethnicity, their cultures and tradition that they have loved and lived for decades and centuries. India, both before and after independence, has always been a land of diverse cultures which has brought out such pulsating vibrancy in its unity in diversity. Bowing down to political compulsions, playing vote-bank politics, appeasing of minority the members of which want to maintain their own status separate from this country's Constitution, Law and the Civil Society … all this must change for the good of this wonderful country and its countrymen.

People from diverse cultures and faiths have agreed to stay, grow and benefit together from this loving country of ours. While people may want to enjoy the benefits, it is expected also that they join hands together to build up a strong, prosperous and an invincible nation - this calls for devotion and loyalty to one's own nation - patriotism.

Cultural Nationalism: The pseudo-secular and vastly funded by their political masters and moneybags from the paupered West, the Indian media takes pride in asking "Does India have a Culture?" Yes, it does more so when it is this country that taught the world to be civilized. Blinded by the colonialist mindset the so-called Indians - politicians, media, pseudo- and armchair intellectuals - all need to shake up their pseudo-secularism and cultivate the spirit of unity among peoples divided - willingly or otherwise - on the lines of faith, religions and Dharma… for Bharat, if not India, still has the capacity to show the world the way beyond materialism and terrorism.

For various known and unknown reasons, the two-pronged policies of the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government are (1) blatantly ignoring and demeaning the 75% of the country's population, dividing them on the lines of minority while appeasing the aggressive, largely separatists and not-so-minority community and (2) though economically profiting the policies are morally debasing, corrupting across the societal spectrum and spiritually killing. The UPA Government continuing with the divisive policies of the British Raj that has left the country for six decades ago has divided and weakened the fledgling nation and has almost killed the much-required National Spirit.

The Mission Statement of Ministry of Culture is worth studying. It spends annually over Rs 1200 crore (2009-10; Rs 950 cr in 2007-08), devotes handsome amount for Buddhist and Tibetan Studies, developing museums, gallery of modern art, music and dance etc but has simply no mention of or support for promotion of Hindu or Sanatana Culture; the government through various schemes and policies doles out large amounts of money for the study of Urdu, setting up Madarsas to promote the study of Quran and also to go for Haj by the members of the Muslim community. However, the Hindus in their own country have simply no support from the government to promote the study of their Bhagavad Gita or any other sacred books that teach unity and love for all.

ARISE, ARJUNA! - This is the title of a book by David Frawley, author of many a books on Hinduism and promoter director of American Institute of Vedic Studies. He concludes his book by saying: The message of my encounter with the Vedas to modern Hindus is this: 'Your spiritual tradition is perhaps the greatest treasure of all humanity. Please cherish it, sustain it, practice it and share it with all… Let us not forget our Vedic heritage and those who have access to Vedic knowledge, please study it and strive to preserve it.'

David Frawley, aka Vamadeva Shastri, is one among others like Stephen Knapp, Frank Morales, Koenraad Elst (of Germany) and many more intellectuals across the world have converted themselves as neo-Hindus and are increasingly voicing their ire against the dormant Hindus for silently bearing the ill-treatment from their politicians, government and intellectuals. We need to be proud of our own culture, our sacred books that have enlightened mankind for centuries. In this direction, let it be known publicly that the world and its scholars are busy researching and discovering newer truths and facets from the various fundamental and scientific ways of life of Sanatana Dharma

It is time that we, the people of Bharat and of India wake up, be watchful and increase our efforts to strengthen our rich and diverse culture the Hindu culture, or better still the culture of Sanatana Dharma that has been large-hearted enough to lovingly take under its vast fold members of different faiths and culture.

In order to rekindle the lost National Spirit or the Cultural Nationalism let us once again remember the stalwarts of Nationalism like Sri Aurobindo, Veer Savarkar, Chhattrapati Shivaji Raje Bhosale, Swami Vivekananda and the many more Revolutionary Freedom Fighters who have been relegated on the sidelines by the West-loving Congress led UPA government.

Lastly we request you all out there to send us your feedback and relevant information from watching TV programs, reading dailies and periodicals and rummaging through maze of policy papers and strengthen our collective efforts on to this pious journey. Challenging as it is, we at NATIONAL SPIRIT would strive to offer you each week enough food for thought that would bring us all together to work towards once again making this benevolent land of enlightened seers and selfless millions into a prosperous and invincible nation.

NATIONAL SPIRIT - A Weekly Stirring up the Soul of India

(A Weekly Stirring up the Soul of India)

The ‘What’ and ‘Why’ of National Spirit

Bharat is a land of Sants and Rishis. Many Gods and Rishis have taken avatar in this land - Raam, Krishna, Mahavir, Bhuddha, Adi Shankara, Guru Nanak, etc. Therefore, it is called Devbhoomi too. Bharat has all along been Spiritual Nation, although it has been ruled by Muslims and Christians for nearly 1000 years. There is no country in the world which, after being enslaved for nearly 1000 years, takes rebirth as one country. Bharat did so, in spite of so much diversity in the name of caste, language, region, etc. This oneness was due to the spiritual and cultural unity of Bharat - the Soul - which in other word is called Sanatan Dharm, Hindutva or Bharatiyatuva. Moreover, Dharm and Nationalism have always been interlinked in Bharat. For example, in a Pooja, the ‘sankalpa’ begins with "Bharata varshe, Bharata kande ...", a clear reference to Motherland. India can remain united only by holding on to its Spiritual values.

Today’s media, both print and electronic, does not represent the robust Indian Nationalist ideology nor does it care about the nation’s soul - Dharm. Since almost all the media persons are soaked up in our Mecaulayian system of education, they are only ‘brown’ (Indian) in outlook but ‘white’ (Englishmen) in taste, opinion and morals. They never lose an opportunity to belittle Sanatan Hindu Dharm.

Also, in this age of aggressive publicity, theVoice of Dharm is lost in the cacophony of pseudo-secularists who occupy cosy chairs with plenty of perks at tax-payers’ money. The proud Nationalist finds himself in a hopeless minority, with the steamroller majority composed of pseudo-Secularists and Mecaulayists.

It is therefore, essential that a Nationalist medium, outspoken and vibrant be created so that the Nationalist voice is not only not muffled, but takes on the Pseudo-Secularists.

With this in mind, I launched Hindu Voice (Monthly) in April 2002, which has about 15,000 subscribers all over the world. Since one month is a long period, I have launched this Weekly titled NATIONAL SPIRIT.

NATIONAL SPIRIT will campaign for protecting and promoting Indian Nationalism (whether you call it Dharm, Hindutva or Bharatiyatuva) among all sections of people. It will raise its voice against Adharm. It will expose anti-nationals and stand with Nationalists. National Spirit will expose forces inimical to nationalism, democracy and freedom of speech. It will work for preserving and propagating our ancient and hoary culture and for upholding the sacred and moral values enshrined in our Vedas, Puranas and Ithihasas.

If India (nation) is the body, Spiritualism (Dharm) is its soul. A body without the soul becomes dead. Similarly, a soul without a body is a ghost. India without its soul is just unthinkable. Sanatan Hindu Dharm (Soul) is eternal, but our Nation (Body) may not, if Nationalists sleep like Kumbhakarna, as it has continually been shrinking. National Spirit will stir up this soul to make the Nation vibrant and lively, so that our beloved Motherland - Bharat - not only remains strong, secure and prosperous, but also becomes the Vishwa Guru, as it once was.

NATIONAL SPIRIT is not affiliated to any political party, organisation, Religious Order or industrial group. We will be loyal to One - the only One - Maa Bharathi (Bharat Mata). National Spirit is dedicated at Her lotus feet.
