Slightly long thread. The following have been my observations on changes in thought process regarding Hinduism.
Before 70s there were hardly any inter-caste or inter-religious marriages. This was a majorly vegetarian country &drinking alcohol also was prohibited atleast at home.
With a new wave in films, thought process started changing. Clothing styles changed, speaking vernacular languages was mocked at, inter-caste, inter-religious marriages started taking place.
Parents were forced to change their thought process to suit that of the youngsters and +
where earlier, the elders were the ones whose advice was sought after, now it was the children’s.
When anyone went abroad, the members of his/her family would make such a show of it, that irrespective of the life they led abroad, it was thought of as an ideal life.
Earlier bringing alcohol was considered equivalent to bringing Kaliyug into house, now those who could afford started showing off their bottles in dining area.
When anyone married outside the caste, family members showed it as progressive &encourage full family to embrace change
If 1 did Puja-paath on birthdays instead of cutting cake, it was considered old-fashioned, people used to tease saying they cannot afford a cake & hence did Puja.
Inter-religious marriages became famous after filmi folk did it or when they converted to Islam to marry 2nd time.
Brahmins/Vaishnavs/Jains who never ate non-veg food started eating it to look modern & cool & coz they had to adjust with friends.
In all these cases, once they indulged in something against Dharmic norms, they made it sound very cool & encouraged family members/friends to do it.
Enter Sonia Gandhi. Conversion into Christianity became the norm in Congress. For example K.R.Narayanan, P C Sangma, Ambika Soni etc.
Political parties started supporting Conversion into Christianity and/or Islam & Minority appeasement in became the norm for all political parties
BJP & RSS were not left behind. Spouses of post holder or their children either converted or got married to Christians/Muslims. Nothing wrong with this.
But to mainstream it, they too started supporting talk of “All Religions are the same” & “Anyone from Bharat is a Hindu”.
Congress were exposed only after 2010 & then one started understanding why certain States became non-Hindu majority States.
It is important to decipher new-found love of BJP & RSS for all Minorities so much that they are sidelining
Hindu majority & denying Civilizational Rights
When any Party tomtoms that they have spent Rs.22,000 crores on scholarship for only one Minority community, it strikes as odd, especially when no comparable figures are given for other religions. More so coz some are suddenly saying, "Hum ne kya tekha le rakha hai Hinduon ka?"
No Hindu wants any enmity with other religions, but Hindus now are fed up of the Secularism which denies them their Rights. When Hindus are told all DNA is the same, they wonder why DNA is being shoved down their throats. Do the Ms & Xs feel the same way as Hindus?
No one showed any animosity even when Bomb blasts ripped across Mumbai/ when Kashmiri Hindus faced genocide. Then why force us to bow down to appease others?
Christians converted with money/power. Still Hindus kept quiet. Why force Hindus to accept Dalit Christians as SCs ?
Hindus want to know where they went wrong. Why doesn't the Party which came to power with their votes, want to save their ancient Civilization? Hindus want replies from those who are in power directly/indirectly. Aren't our votes important? Hindus are still waiting for an answer.

The ex-CBI Chief lists out the process of deracination of Hindus – people get rattled

An evergreen failure belonging to a political party does rounds of Temples to fool people – it is divine.

The Chief Justice does ‘saashtaanga namaskar’ in a Temple and prays – people get rattled

A police officer offers ‘namaaz’ in the middle of the road – it is divine.

A Hindu politician makes statements against murderous crowd of Minorities – people get rattled

A Minorities Commission Chairman makes provocative statements causing mayhem in the capital – it is divine.

Not everyone enters Politics or Social Work to be Politically Correct. Sadhvi Pragya is one of them. Her calling Godse a Patriot may be Politically Incorrect, but not a wrong statement.
Those who want to pretend to be holier than thou wrt Gandhiji & Godse fall into 4 categories & I have some questions for them:
Have you followed Gandhiji’s footsteps wrt:
Washing common toilets to prove that no work is small.

Eating food at the house of a slum dweller to prove that untouchability is a curse.
Wear only simple, one-toned or white Khadi cloth throughout your life.
Protest against the Establishment levying unjust taxes.
Drunk goat milk to prevent Gou-Mata from being exploited.

Why are we so shocked with the #MurshidabadHeinousCrime ?
Is it the 1st time something heinous has happened to Hindus?
Remember #Noakhali genocide?
Started a series of rapes and murders which went on for 3 horrible days, before Gopal Chandra Mukhopadhyay hit back.
Guess what he was called-
GOONDA of Kolkata.
Kashmiri Pandits were raped, killed & threatened.
They were forced to leave Kashmir.
Guess what they were called-
RSS workers were killed in Kerala in cold blood.
They didn't hit back.
Guess what they were called-
Prithviraj Chauhan did not kill Ghori. He forgave him everytime.
What is he called today?
Xtian Missionaries silently kill our tradition and culture.
What do we call them?
Izlamic followers do the 'Murgi' cut.
What do we call them?

Why do we need #EqualRightsforHindus?
1. #RighttoChildhoodFun
Courts rule that Dahi Handi, Diwali, Holi - dangerous, polluting, water wastage. Children & families love these festivals.
But actually Childhood is lost when
- self-flagellation during Moharram
- Radicalisation leading to Child suicide bombers
- Children paid for stoning Army, etc.
Childhood also lost when
- Church & its supporting NGOs force
Schoolchildren to protest against Government for
- Aarey, Sterlite Copper issue, etc.
Village sports Jallikattu, Kumbala, Dahi Handi train & test fitness of individuals. V. important.
- Unlike #WeaponsTraining or #LoveJihad training by Radical Islamists
- Unlike Acts of Epilepsy, Mental Illness by Evangelists
