A must read book for every Indian irrespective of her religion.

Hindu Temples: What Happened to Them, Vol.2: The Islamic Evidence amazon.in/dp/8185990948/… #Amazon
Here is a small introduction to Sitaram Ji.

Pl read this article by @davidfrawleyved on SitaramJi, a prolific writer on broad range of social, historical and religious issues. He challenged communism in India, when it was fashionable to be a leftist. His work on massive Islamic destruction of Hindu temples is unparalleled
In this artcile @davidfrawleyved calls Sitaram Ji "Modern India’s Greatest Intellectual Kshatriya". He confronted forces seeking to destroy Hindu culture, exposing their wrong ideologies & biased theologies. Today people need to read his work again.
SitaramJi exposed such historians with solid evidence taken from not just Indic texts but Islamic books also. Learn your own history otherwise they will impose their version on you. #ReclaimTemples
Our history books portray Akbar as a very just and fair king. See what he did

Unlimited tolerance must lead to the disappearance of tolerance. If we extend unlimited tolerance to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them
Left historians like Irfan Habib and Romila Thapar had thwarted an amicable settlement to the #babrimasjid vs #RamMandir issue.

No community or nation can run away from its past. Germans are not allowed to wish away the holocaust of Hitler. So, what is it about Islam that all historians are keen to shield present-day Indian Muslims from what got done earlier?

Asks @TheJaggi

Just as Ambedkar’s critique of caste and Hinduism should be required reading for Hindus, Sita Ram Goel’s two-volume study on the destruction of Hindu temples by Muslim rulers ought to be read by all educated Muslims.

Whitewashing the history does not heal. ONLY TRUTH CAN !
History is full of examples of one community committing gross injustice to another community. You can’t blame current people for deeds of past people. But to heal, four things need to happen.

1. Recognise.
2. Regret
3. Repair
4. Reconcile.

The first step is of course to recognise the history, however painful, cruel it may be. Every German and every Jew knows about #holocaust.

There are monuments, books, films that remind us of that painful chapter of our history. No German celebrates Hitler today they know.
Back home, Hindus are reminded every day that so called upper caste Hindus discriminated against lower caste Hindus.

There are hundreds of books, movies, articles, documentaries telling this in strong words.

But when it comes to atrocities committed by Islamic invaders, we see total silence. Our history books hv been sanitized. There are no monuments, movies, books or essays on innocents brutally killed, raped or forcefully converted & temples demolished. #RamMandir #RamJanmabhoomi
It is an old article where historian Michael Sontheimer reveals his family's Nazi past and explains why even his 11-year-old son still has a burden to bear. Worth a read..

Second step is of course to regret the events of the past. To apologize. See what Angela Merkel tells Israel - "The Shoah fills us Germans with shame. I bow before the victims. I bow before the survivors and before all those who helped them survive"

And this is not limited to just head of the state. The ordinary citizens too recognize and regret the historical crimes.

Same is true for caste-ism which had infected Hinduism in spite of the facts that Ramayana was written by Valmiki and how Rama treated Shabri. There have been countless Hindu reformers who have criticized caste discrimination and worked towards eradication of this social evil.
Birth-based discrimination and cruel treatment of individuals and families which developed in Hindu society over time as socially sanctioned practices are in gross violation of ancient Hindu teachings and philosophy - Hindu Dharma Acharya Sabha

Swamy Dayanand Saraswati fought this discrimination, advocated equal access to education, promoted inter-dinning between different caste to eradicate untouchability. declared that basis of marriage must by education, qualities & actions of both partners rather than the caste.
Chaitanya Mahaprabhu too rejected the caste system & said that VaishNava dharma superseded VarNAshrama Dharma and his prominent followers included lower castes as well. Many artisans, craftsmen, painters incorporated facets of his life into their art.

A countless number of reformers within Hindu society rejected birth based discrimination

Gopal Krishna Gokhale
Bal Gangadhar Tilak
Swami Sahajanand Saraswati
Debendranath Tagore
Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar
Bankim Chandra Chattopadhyay
Vinoba Bhave
and many more.
RSS, so often vilified by liberals has been fighting casteism ever since its inception. Even today it says - "One well, One temple and One crematorium for all Hindus"

See this article by Ajay Singh

And this is not limited to only reformers of past or few large organisations. More and more people are rejecting caste discrimination and fighting it at different fronts. See this story

Most Hindus reject caste discrimination and many have even formally apologized for past. Another example

The third step is the most important step. Repair. Recognising and regretting is not enough to heal the wounds. Affirmative actions are needed to heal the old wounds. There can not be a permanent reconciliation unless a conscious effort is made to repair what was broken
The story of how Islamic invaders sought to destroy the very foundations of Hindu society and culture is long and extremely painful. It would certainly be better for everybody to forget the past, but for the prescriptions of Islamic theology which remain intact even today.
Our leftist historians have whitewashed the painful history of Islamic atrocities. Sample this.

No imperialism is secure unless it destroys the pride, culture and valour of a conquered people.

People who retain their religions, their Gods and their priests make poor subjects and remain potential rebels.

- Sitaram Goel
What is so communal about a community trying to build a temple, the most honourable of acts, in their own land.

Would anyone deny Catholics their right to put up a church in Rome?

Would anyone say no if the Saudis wanted to build a mosque in Mecca?

And the delay in court continues with #AyodhyaHearing postponed again. Confucius said "Faced with what is right, to leave it undone shows a lack of courage."

Pray that better sense prevails !!
A section of the Indian intelligentsia is trying to erase from the Hindus’ memory the history of their persecution by the swords-men of Islam.

Negationism in India: concealing the record of Islam by @Koenraad_Elst is another must read book
