You're spewing hateful-colonial construct also used by Radical Christian missionaries, Hinduphobic Left-DMK to deride us Hindus🕉️ by saying that we don't have any identity, existence before 20th Century.
Vedas, Upanishads, Itihasas, Puranas etc.
Ramayanas like Valmiki's, Molla's, Kambar's.
Nalayira Divya Prabandham,
Tirumurai, Amuktamalyada, Gita Govinda etc.
What are they?
Aditi, Indra, Agni, Vayu, Varuna, Ushas, Prithvi.
Brahma-Saraswati, Vishnu-Lakshmi, Shiva-Parvati, Ayyappa Swamy, Ganesha, Murugan, Karuppu Sami.
Yellamma, Maisamma, Pochamma, Kanaka Durga, Kali,
Andal, Ranganatha, Jagannath, Balarama, Vithoba, Narasimha.
"Maryada Purushottam" Ramachandra, Sita Devi, Hanuman,
"Leela Purushottam" Krishna, Radharani.
Their worship didn't exist before 20th C?@Aloft_Incumbent
Our Sanatana Hindu 🕉️ Dharma still exists; Thanks to our 🕉️ Hindu ancestors & their continuous resistance; we didn't give up.🚩
How ignorant, stupid and Hinduphobic of you @Aloft_Incumbent to say that we "Hindus are false majority" seriously?
You're implying that lower castes which in constitutional terms referred as OBC, SC, ST are not Hindus at all but part of "False Hindu majority."
Let me disappoint you:
I am an OBC, In fact i am more Dharmic than many of my UC, Brahmin frds & I know devoted SC, ST Hindus.
Do you Le-Lis know how much devoted Hindu he is?
Leave UCs for a minute, As an OBC Hindu, I have Hindu🕉️ culture, ancestry.
What makes you think only Upper castes are "real" Hindus? should we then let go of our Dharma?
They're highly revered by all Hindus.
Non-UCs also contributed to 🕉️Dharma.
Nandanar(Dalit Nayanar), Pothuluri Veerabrahmendra Swamy, Tukaram, Sree Narayana guru, Mata Amritanandamayi & many more.
Our ancestors gave us, Kula devata(family deity),
Grama devata(village deity)
Ishta devata(one's personal deity)-mine "Lord Krishna"
Hindu🕉️ heritage includes all Vedic, Puranic, Kula, Grama, Ishta devatas(deities) worship etc.
Eradicate Caste Discrimination but in which manner?
Many 🕉️ Bhakti movement saints to reformers like Dayanand Saraswati, Sree Narayana guru worked for it.
Before Annihilating caste, practically 1st we need to "remove hatred between castes."
Tough but possible.
Casteism is across religions in Subcontinent, one can change faith but not caste (present in Sikhs, Muslims, Christians, Jains too) & you can also see "Casteless Hindus" too.
How does caste matter to them?
Varna is fluid, that's why many castes in Subcontinent have claimed different Varnas to suit themselves at different times.
Also many OBC, SC, ST communities have got their culture related to Hindu 🕉️ Dharma, so don't do disservice to them, for us, for me.
so main issue wrt casteism shouldn't be anti-hinduism but caste discrimination (this is where one can be anti-casteist) by treating all equally.
Rather we should bring castes on same level for socio-economic upliftment.
Inter-Caste marriages, Priesthood to interested people across castes, spirituality etc (which are also happening in several places, several Hindu🕉️ groups like Arya Samaj, ISKCON etc) will surely help to eliminate casteism.
So one needs to be anti-casteist but need not be anti-hindu at same time.
Hindu 🕉️ Dharma has seen tremendous adaption with time without losing it's roots even when adversaries, invasions came.
"We are disturbed by Anti-Hindu Le-Lis like you appropriating some Hindu communities under garb of human rights, secularism using them as pawns for your agenda bcoz the ideological continuity between Indian
People like you were influenced by enemies of Hindus to do propaganda against Hinduism
Infact Lower caste people have been victims at hands of Indian Left e.g. Marichjhapi Massacre of Dalits, and killings of Tribals by Naxals and people like you played role to
The only relevant question in today's politics is whether people will boycott Hinduphobic Anti-Indian Left
