Dec. 9, 2011Dear Dr. Faust,Sub: A Hero, Victim of Harvard Bigotry.When I checked my mail last night and found that Harvard University, one of the leading Ivy League educational institutions in the world, had decided to drop economic courses taught by Dr. Subramanian Swamy, a world renowned economist, I was simply stunned. How could one of the top educational institutions in our country go so wrong is beyond me? In view of the fact that only a few months back the University had upheld the right of freedom of expression of Dr. Swamy and rejected the pleas of his biased and distortionist opponents, the reversal of the initial decision raises many troubling questions.We firmly believe that the initial decision by the University was right, pragmatic, based on justifiable facts. Its reversal on the grounds of hatefulness, communalism, narrow mindedness, anti-Indianism and anti-Hinduism demonstrated by some of the faulty zealots is simply reprehensible. These fellow travelers have seriously ruptured the credibility of a prestigious educational institution and tarnished its good name. Please note that a billion plus Indians worldwide particularly Hindus have noted this “backward and regressive step” by the University with utter disappointment and disdain. To say the least it has irreparably damaged the good reputation of your institution.In paragraph 2 of his original article under reference Dr. Swamy has clearly stated that “Islamic terrorism is India’s number one national security problem….and already the successor to Osama bin Laden as the al-Qaeda leader has declared that India is the priority target for that terrorist organization and not the USA” (see attachment A). It should be obvious that Dr. Swamy’s imaginary hatred of Muslims is not the issue. But Muslims must face the reality of their civilizational war against Hindus and their aim of creating a Caliphate in Asia with India as its major constituent that is at the root of the conflict. Towards the concluding portion of his analysis Dr. Swamy has summarized the goals of the Islamic terrorism in India. He believes that their number 1 goal is to overawe India on Kashmir. To combat this goal of terrorists Dr. Swamy proposed removal of article 370 of India’s national constitution and creating Panun Kashmir for the exiled Hindu Pandit community and look for an opportunity to liberate the portion of Kashmir which was illegally occupied byPakistan. And if Pakistan continues to back terrorists, India should assist the Balauchis and Sindhis to get their independence.Clearly the central issue raised by Dr. Swamy in his so called objectionable analysis (which became the reason for cancellation of his courses) is the “abrogation of section 370 of the Indian Constitution so the national constitution and the body of laws built under it became applicable to Jammu & Kashmir State like other states and union territories of India. That would considerably improve the law and order situation and afford protection to disenfranchised ethnic minorities. Needless to say that section 370 (which was supposed to be a temporary section) gives special status to this state and therefore, the Indian Constitution and the laws framed there under are not applicable in it. Dr. Faust, abusing the current communally shaped state authority the 20% Sunni Muslims of the Kashmir valley, mostly followers of Wahabi Islam and Osama Bin Laden, who enjoy a monopoly of political, economic, legislative and administrative power, have turned this state in to a virtual “Talibanistan” and have imposed “Sharia” as the law of the state. Thousands upon thousands of non-Muslims have been killed in Muslim induced ethnic cleansing, genocide, massacres, kidnappings and forcible occupation of their movable and immovable properties. More than 75,000 Kashmiris have lost their lives in this civilizational crusade unleashed by radical Islam. In their quest for wholesale Islamization of the state, more than a million non-Muslims have been driven out of the state courtesy of Wahabi crusaders and their supporters in the establishment. These oustees have become homeless refugees in various parts of India and the globe. Dr. Faust, I am myself a Kashmiri American and the lives of seven members of my family were prematurely cut short during the avalanche of the Islamic terrorism. It was Dr. Swamy who raised his voice against this human tragedy but alas the policy makers at Harvard failed to see it.You must know that Kashmir is progressively assuming the status of another Kabul, Kandahar, Peshawar and Islamabad as a center of Islamic Jihad. Recognizing the fast deteriorating conditions on the ground the Obama Administration has also warned the Indian authorities about the spread and linkage of Indian Taliban with Pakistani Muslim terrorist outfits. In the US itself a Pakistani agent, G.N.Fai, of Kashmiri origin who has admitted to having accepted instructions and millions of dollars from the Pakistani spy agency, ISI, for influencing the US policy towards Kashmir and Pakistan, was recently arrested in Virginia. All these indicators reveal that unless speedy and preventive measures are taken Kashmir may be developing in to yet another radical Islamist volcano ready to explode.By demanding the abrogation of section 370 of the Indian Constitution Dr. Subramanian Swamy has been trying to reverse the dangerous advance of Wahabi Islam in the Indian sub-Continent and in the process saving the US from having to deal with one more nasty, bloody and complex development in the world. It will be foolhardy on any body’s part to ignore the fact that India, despite being known as a Hindu country, has the second largest Muslim population in the world and the Indian Republic borders Pakistan, the epicenter of Islamic terrorism with multi-continental reach. How unfortunate and regrettable it is that Dr. Swamy is being banished because he showed the wisdom, fortitude and guts for doing the right thing by fighting the Jihadis before it was too late. The UN, US, UK, NATO and the rest of civilized world are following similar policies towards the Jihadis and the radical Islam. But Harvard seems to be adopting a negative policy for extracting a price from Dr. Swamy for following their lead. We must not ignore the fact that it was these Johnnies ( Pakis and Arab Sunnis ) who plotted and executed the first ever attack on mainland USA on 9/11 killing more than 3,000 innocent Americans.Dr. Faust, I hope you understand the basis of our anger, frustration and disappointment against Harvard University’s decision to exclude Dr. Swami’s courses from your summer offerings. In our opinion the latest decision of Harvard has provided the greatest boost, encouragement and authentication to the forces of Islamic Jihad every where particularly in the most volatile Indian sub-continent. By this thoughtless action, your decision makers have not only violated the University’s covenant of free speech and academic freedom, the University has clearly appeared to have taken the side of the soldiers of the civilizational conquest who have taken everything from us and are now threatening the very integrity and sovereignty of India – the largest democracy of the world.Honoring the sacrifices of a million non-Muslim humans who were driven in to exile from Kashmir by the followers of Osama Bin Laden and Wahabi Islam and more than 75,000 Kashmiris whose lives were consumed by the Islamic terrorism, we request you to kindly re-examine the matter dispassionately and reinstate the summer courses taught by Dr. Swamy. How shameful and unfortunate it would be if the promoters of Wahabi Islam, radical Jihad, the Bin Laden doctrine and the decision makers of the world famous Harvard University stood side by side as comrades-in-arms against the free and democratic world. That is exactly what your University’s decision about cancelling the courses taught by Dr. Swamy conveys. Let better sense prevail and let the decision making process of your University not be allowed to be hijacked by some radical individuals acting under foreign influences.I would appreciate if you kindly inform me of the actions taken in this regard and inform me of your decision. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org and/or via phone at 541-957-8414 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting 541-957-8414 end_of_the_skype_highlighting.Sincerely yoursDr. Jagan Kaul, (Rtd) Prof Int’l Law; Chairman Diversity-USA

Analysis: How to wipe out Islamic terrorPublished: Saturday, Jul 16, 2011, 8:00 IST | Updated: Sunday, Jul 17, 2011, 18:23 IST
By Subramanian Swamy | Place: Mumbai | Agency: DNA
The terrorist blast in Mumbai on July 13, 2011, requires decisive soul-searching by the Hindus of India. Hindus cannot accept to be killed in this halal fashion, continuously bleeding every day till the nation finally collapses. Terrorism I define here as the illegal use of force to overawe the civilian population to make it do or not do an act against its will and well-being.
Islamic terrorism is India’s number one problem of national security. About this there will be no doubt after 2012. By that year, I expect a Taliban takeover in Pakistan and the Americans to flee Afghanistan. Then, Islam will confront Hinduism to “complete unfinished business”. Already the successor to Osama bin Laden as al-Qaeda leader has declared that India is the priority target for that terrorist organisation and not the USA.
Fanatic Muslims consider Hindu-dominated India “an unfinished chapter of Islamic conquests”. All other countries conquered by Islam 100% converted to Islam within two decades of the Islamic invasion. Undivided India in 1947 was 75% Hindu even after 800 years of brutal Islamic rule. That is jarring for the fanatics.
In one sense, I do not blame the Muslim fanatics for targeting Hindus. I blame Hindus who have taken their individuality permitted in Sanatan Dharma to the extreme. Millions of Hindus can assemble without state patronage for the Kumbh Mela, completely self-organised, but they all leave for home oblivious of the targeting of Hindus in Kashmir, Mau, Melvisharam and Malappuram and do not lift their little finger to help organise Hindus. If half the Hindus voted together, rising above caste and language, a genuine Hindu party would have a two-thirds majority in Parliament and the assemblies.
The first lesson to be learnt from the recent history of Islamic terrorism against India and for tackling terrorism in India is that the Hindu is the target and that Muslims of India are being programmed by a slow reactive process to become radical and thus slide into suicide against Hindus. It is to undermine the Hindu psyche and create the fear of civil war that terror attacks are organised.
Hindus must collectively respond as Hindus against the terrorist and not feel individually isolated or, worse, be complacent because he or she is not personally affected. If one Hindu dies merely because he or she was a Hindu, then a bit of every Hindu also dies. This is an essential mental attitude, a necessary part of a virat (committed) Hindu.
We need a collective mindset as Hindus to stand against the Islamic terrorist. The Muslims of India can join us if they genuinely feel for the Hindu. That they do I will not believe unless they acknowledge with pride that though they may be Muslims, their ancestors were Hindus. If any Muslim acknowledges his or her Hindu legacy, then we Hindus can accept him or her as a part of the Brihad Hindu Samaj (greater Hindu society) which is Hindustan. India that is Bharat that is Hindustan is a nation of Hindus and others whose ancestors were Hindus. Others, who refuse to acknowledge this, or those foreigners who become Indian citizens by registration, can remain in India but should not have voting rights (which means they cannot be elected representatives).
Any policy to combat terrorism must begin with requiring each and every Hindu becoming a virat Hindu. For this, one must have a Hindu mindset that recognises that there is vyaktigat charitra (personal character) and rashtriya charitra (national character). For example, Manmohan Singh has high personal character, but by being a rubber stamp of a semi-literate Sonia Gandhi and waffling on all national issues, he has proved that he has no rashtriya charitra.
The second lesson for combating terrorism is that we must never capitulate or concede any demand, as we did in 1989 (freeing five terrorists in exchange for Mufti Mohammed Sayeed’s daughter Rubaiya) and in 1999, freeing three terrorists after the hijack of Indian Airlines flight IC-814.
The third lesson is that whatever and however small the terrorist incident, the nation must retaliate massively. For example, when the Ayodhya temple was sought to be attacked, we should have retaliated by re-building the Ram temple at the site.According to bleeding heart liberals, terrorists are born or bred because of illiteracy, poverty, oppression, and discrimination. They argue that instead of eliminating them, the root cause of these four disabilities in society should be removed. This is rubbish. Osama bin laden was a billionaire. In the failed Times Square episode, failed terrorist Shahzad was from a highly placed family inPakistan and had an MBA from a reputed US university.
It is also a ridiculous idea that terrorists cannot be deterred because they are irrational and willing to die. Terrorist masterminds have political goals and a method in their madness. An effective strategy to deter terrorism is to defeat those political goals and to rubbish them by counter-terrorist action.Thus, I advocate the following strategy to negate the political goals of Islamic terrorism in India.
Goal 1: Overawe India on Kashmir.
Strategy: Remove Article 370 and resettle ex-servicemen in the valley. Create Panun Kashmir for the Hindu Pandit community. Look for or create an opportunity to take over PoK. If Pakistan continues to back terrorists, assist the Baluchis and Sindhis to get their independence.
Goal 2: Blast temples, kill Hindu devotees.
Strategy: Remove the masjid in Kashi Vishwanath temple and the 300 masjids at other temple sites.
Goal 3: Turn India into Darul Islam.Strategy: Implement the uniform civil code, make learning of Sanskrit and singing of Vande Mataram mandatory, and declare India a Hindu Rashtra in which non-Hindus can vote only if they proudly acknowledge that their ancestors were Hindus. Rename India Hindustan as a nation of Hindus and those whose ancestors were Hindus.
Goal 4: Change India’s demography by illegal immigration, conversion, and refusal to adopt family planning.
Strategy: Enact a national law prohibiting conversion from Hinduism to any other religion. Re-conversion will not be banned. Declare that caste is not based on birth but on code or discipline. Welcome non-Hindus to re-convert to the caste of their choice provided they adhere to the code of discipline. Annex land fromBangladesh in proportion to the illegal migrants from that country staying in India. At present, the northern third from Sylhet to Khulna can be annexed to re-settle illegal migrants.
Goal 5: Denigrate Hinduism through vulgar writings and preaching in mosques, madrassas, and churches to create loss of self-respect amongst Hindus and make them fit for capitulation.
Strategy: Propagate the development of a Hindu mindset.India can solve its terrorist problem within five years by such a deterrent strategy, but for that we have to learn the four lessons outlined above, and have a Hindu mindset to take bold, risky, and hard decisions to defend the nation. If the Jews could be transformed from lambs walking meekly to the gas chambers to fiery lions in just 10 years, it should not be difficult for Hindus in much better circumstances (after all we are 83% of India), to do so in five years.
Guru Gobind Singh showed us how just five fearless persons under spiritual guidance can transform a society. Even if half the Hindu voters are persuaded to collectively vote as Hindus, and for a party sincerely committed to a Hindu agenda, then we can forge an instrument for change. And that is the bottom line in the strategy to deter terrorism in a democratic Hindustan at this moment of truth.
