Ghar Wapasi is not stooping low. It is an uplifting initiative. Through ghar wapasi, one saves the Christians and Muslims
Job Anbalagan Thangasamy, while commenting on a recent thread of mine, where I had commended the efforts of the Sringeri Matha and ghar wapasi, made a few remarks to which I respond here.
//Let the Mathas continue to help impart education which is laudable. Why they should stoop to the level of Ghar wapasi or religious conversion?//
Ghar Wapasi is not stooping low. It is an uplifting initiative. Through ghar wapasi, one saves the Christians and Muslims from Jesus and Muhammad respectively. I have decisively argued that Christianity and Islam are memetic viruses. So, ghar wapasi is the cure for those afflicted by the diseases of Christianity and Islam. I have also decisively argued that Christianity and Jesus are entirely immoral. Hence, ghar wapasi is bringing everyone back to the moral and dharmic path. None of us who is reasonable would want our children to worship a rapist. How can we then turn a blind eye when brainwashed people are worshiping a prenatal-incestuous-rapist and genocidal maniac like Jesus or follow a murderous rapist like Muhammad?
//It would be appropriate if my friend uses the word “Indian” in place of Hindu.//
There is no India without Hindu. Linguistically, culturally, and religiously both are identical. Only those with an aversion to their own Hindu heritage deny this. Swami Vivekananda observed that when a Hindu is converted to Christianity or Islam it is not merely a Hindu less but an enemy the more. He was 100% right. Christians and Muslims are hostile to anything Hindu. These two memetic viruses warp the worldview of the blind flock and makes it hate everything in their own traditions and instead embrace the virulent Middle Eastern ideologies of hate.
//For many decades, we in India have been observing all the festivals religiously.//
I have never seen Christians observe and celebrate Hindu festivals and respect Hindu gods. Hindus have been magnanimous toward every other religion. Virtually all of them came to India as refugees or as invaders. Christians first came here 1,300 years ago after they faced persecution in Syria from other Christian sects. Hindus embraced them and let them flourish. That is how Kerala’s Syrian Christian church survived. Parsis and Tibetan Buddhists came as refugees and Hindus embraced them and respected their religious independence. The Jews came as refugees 2,000 years ago and Hindus protected the Jewish religion as well. This never happened in any other country. However, Christians (barring the honorable exception of Syrian Christians for the most part) and Muslims, unlike the Buddhists, Jews, and Parsis, have not reciprocated in kind. They have been hostile to Hinduism.
Let the Christians say that they would prostrate in front of God Ganesha on Ganesh Chaturthi or God Rama on Rama Navami and I would believe your tall claim.
//It is the “doctrine of love for our neighbour” that would unite us and propel us to the right direction in a nation which is divided by the religions.//
See my note above. Only the Hindus have practised this ideal. You should be aware that the Christian version of this ideal was borrowed from other religions and perverted by Jesus, who clearly preached that by neighbor he only meant those born into the Jewish race. He preached virulent hatred against non-Jews. You should also be aware that when Jesus perverted this rule he also blatantly lied through his teeth about a reference to the Jewish Bible.
