Targeting Muslims in India must stop, says American Sikh Council

Brahmins are less than 3.5% of India’s Hindu population

The American Sikh Council (ASC) is very concerned about major human rights violations against religious and ethnic minorities. ASC stands for everyone to practice their faith freely with no fear from anyone, including tyrannical governments.

In the recent past, Muslims have become specific targets of the Brahminical ire. Brahmins have never taken kindly to anyone being their ‘equal’! The vast majority of Muslims are all indigenous people of modern India, who like other faiths adopted faith to get a measure of dignity and self-respect so they could be treated as humans and equals, as that was never possible under the religiously sanctioned Hindu-apartheid commonly known as the ‘caste system’!

Brahmins are less than 3.5% of India’s Hindu population, yet wield an enormous control on all federal (central), state positions, which include the judiciary, police, administration, and all the way to the upper echelons of political power. According to the former director of Indian intelligence P.K.Dhar of the ‘Intelligence Bureau’ (IB), “The IB is 100% Brahmins”! At least six out of twelve Prime Ministers in the last 73 years have been Brahmins. At least four out of eleven Presidents have been Brahmins.

The devil is in the detail, so for those across the globe who think India is a secular nation based on secular laws, need to read the very verbose Indian constitution, closely. All freedoms are conditional and it is very obvious that most of the constitution has been written from the Brahmin perspective to have perpetual control on not just the masses but also citizens of other faiths.

It seems strange how this is possible, but the deviousness and ingenuity of the Brahmins know no bounds. The Hindus really have three upper castes; namely, Brahmins, Khatris/Kshatriyas, Vaisyas/Banias and are approximately 15% of the so-called Hindu population. The rest of the vast 85% have been lumped into ‘Hinduism’ through legal laws, coopting everyone else to be Hindu, so that the Brahmins and their cohorts have control over a massive permanent vote-bank, otherwise there is little chance of garnering political power. Most of the ‘lowered castes’ do not even follow or believe in the same beliefs, prayers or rituals of the (minority-upper caste) Hindus.

To make sure it does not stop there and all other religious minorities understand who is the boss – the Brahmins even legally coopted Buddhism, Jainism and the Sikh Faith, making all three major world faiths and all their followers into Hindus according to the(ir) law since 1950.

According to Article 25 (b) of the Indian Constitution, “in sub-clause (b) of clause (2), the reference to Hindus shall be construed as including a reference to persons professing the Sikh, Jaina or Buddhist religion, and the reference to Hindu religious institutions shall be construed accordingly.” This clause is very clear and makes all three independent world faiths into sects/denominations of so-called Hinduism. Furthermore, even religious intuitions are under the control of Hindu laws. A perfect example is, the Mahabodhi Temple in Gaya, Bihar, India, the holiest site for Buddhists is completely controlled by Hindu Brahmins to date!

Unfortunately, for the Brahmin puppeteers Muslims make up approximately 15% of India’s population and Islam exists in over 50 countries across the planet. India has refused to put out the latest census numbers on the Muslim population in India for reasons best only known to them. The current Prime Minister Modi who was denied a visa to the US for over ten years due to his direct involvement in the heinous Genocide of Muslims in his home state of Gujarat in February 2002 has stated many a time that he wants to implement the ‘Gujarat model’ across India. So, Modi and his henchman Amit Shah have implemented the ‘Gujarat model’ which is planned lynching, attacks by goons from the various branches of the RSS/BJP an extreme right-wing Hindu party and finally genocides against Muslims and others. All the above is the age-old masterplan of ‘Hindutva’ which is now out in the open for the Brahmin puppeteers of the RSS (akin to the KKK in the US) to carry out through their various minions, including the PM of India. It is the first time in nearly a millennium when the Brahmins have finally got political power and their intent is to make a unitary Hindu nation at the expense of secularism and whatever little sanity exists in the Indian Constitution.

Illegally using Article 370 to clamp down on Kashmir a majority Muslim state, and blacking it out from the rest of the world for the last several months was a clear indication of scary forebodings for religious minorities and currently for Muslims.

The CAA, NPR and NRC bills were secretly planned, quietly introduced on December 9, 2019 and passed on December 10, 2019 by the majority BJP members in the lower house of the Indian parliament, without any discussion or public input.

The long term, insidious, hegemonic Hindutva agenda is to covertly and overtly coopt and bulldoze over all minorities and assimilate them into the cavernous Brahminic fold. The CAA, NPR and NRC laws enacted are clearly targeting the Muslims, but also puts the onus of proof of citizenship on the common ‘man/woman’. In a country with over 649,000 villages; the Indian Parliament enacted the law called Registration of Births and Deaths Act (RBD Act), 1969, which was enforced in most parts of the country in 1970. Though many citizens living in the same village for generations did not have birth certificates. The poorest of the poor still do not!

All peaceful dissent including through the media is being met with physical violence and death, which clearly indicates that once any minority group is stripped of their ‘legal’ citizenship, all other associated rights disappear immediately. A perfect example is how the Rohingyas (Muslims) of Myanmar were stripped of their citizenship and a full-scale genocide ensued, while the world watched recently. India is already building detention centers across in India, some under construction and others planned soon, very similar to the Chinese who have incarcerated over a million Muslims in detention centers.

Protests are being held nationwide for more than two months creating a civil war-like situation. If India truly is the largest democracy in the world then they need to get their act together urgently before their Lilliputian leaders tear it apart with ill-planned laws that target minorities like Muslims and many -religious groups, for no other reason but hatred of the other! Sunil Jhakar of the PPCC party in Punjab called out the Modi leadership as, “tukde tukde government, which was out to divide the country.”

Many states but the state government of Punjab, in particular, have continuously challenged and refused to implement the (il)legally formed CAA, NPR and NRC laws which are extremely divisive and racist. On Monday, United Nations Commissioner for Human Rights (UNHRC) Michelle Bachelet informed India that her office has filed an application urging the Supreme Court to make the UN body a third party in a petition filed by a former civil servant against the law.

From the early 1980s to the late 1990s Sikhs in Punjab were subjected to draconian laws like TADA, POTA, and others, simply to snuff out legal dissent and protest, all in the name of trumped-up terrorism.

Many well-meaning Hindus from students to academics, from the poor to the rich, across the spectrum, have openly protested against these (CAA, NPR, NRC) ill-thought laws and continue to do so.

The American Sikh Council (ASC) calls upon all Sikhs, Dalits, Muslims, Jains, Buddhists, Christians, Jews, Hindus and all others to stand together to stop this insanity and not be cowed down by the ‘goonda raj’!

The American Sikh Council is the umbrella organization representative of Sikhs in the United States. It is an elected body of Sikh Gurdwaras and institutions. Currently, 74 Gurdwaras and other Sikh institutions across the nation are members of ASC. The major governing purpose of the organization is to represent the collective view of Sikhs in the United States. ASC works to promote Sikh interests at the national and international levels focusing on issues of advocacy, education, and well-being of humankind.
