PRESS RELEASE IN DEFENCE OF FORMER SARSANGHCHALAK K.S. SUDARSHAN OF THE RASHTRIYA SWAYAM SEVAK SANGH (RSS)
Narain Kataria in New York
It is a matter of great disgrace and shame that Congress Party adherents in India have taken to the streets and set fire to the effigy of the former Sarsanghachalak K.S. Sudarshan of the Rashtriya Swayam Sevak Sangh (RSS) for alleged derogatory remarks against AICC President Sonia Gandhi.
AICC General Secretary Janardan Dwivedi is reported to have said that “the reaction of the society should be such that no one dare speak in such language in future.” He further said that “if Congressmen and people of the country do something (untoward), they (RSS) will be responsible for it."
The above statement is motivated by a sinister design to instill fear in the minds of the opponents of Sonia Gandhi and silence them. At the same time, it is a signal to the Congressmen to go ahead and attack RSS offices and volunteers.
It is a paradox that these congressmen, because of the feudal environment and their obsequious servility, jump around and vie with one another to win laurels from their boss! They show great vigor and vitality when a Hindu leader is to be attacked but look the other way and go underground when the issue of Islamic terrorism or egregious inequities of other minorities comes up.
Indian citizens have every right to know about the background of their elected officials. Shri Sudarshan has raised four serious issues: (i) Sonia Gandhi is a CIA Agent; (ii) there was a conspiracy to assassinate her husband and former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi and his mother Indira Gandhi; (iii) her pedigree is unknown; and (iv) she had lied about her birth date.
We do not see anything wrong in the above allegations. Conversely, Shri Sudarshanji has provided an opportunity to the nation to debate the above issues and remove the lingering doubts from the minds of Indian citizens about their rulers.
Sonia Gandhi is an elected Member of Parliament. She is holding a high public office. She has been widely publicized as the 9th most powerful person in the world today. India is a democratic country. India is not the personal fiefdom of the Gandhi Dynasty and its sycophants. She is not above the law. Instead of indulging in hooliganism and behaving like ruffians, it is time to resolve these issues once and for all through deliberation and discussion.
In this connection we would like to inform the public that in 2008, the Indian National Overseas Congress of Sonia Gandhi (INOC) had filed three defamation cases in the amount of $220 million against me (Narain Kataria), Arish Sahani and Satya Dosapati in New York and New Jersey courts, for publishing a full page advertisement regarding Sonia Gandhi in The New York Times.
The Indian community in the USA supported us wholeheartedly in these frivolous lawsuits without any merit. We won two of the cases and the third one was withdrawn. The purpose of these cases was also to harass us and individually and collectively gag our voices.

Arundhati Roy’s statement at a seminar in New Delhi on October 21, 2010, where the Maoists hosted Kashmiri secessionist leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani, that Kashmir should get Azadi (freedom) from “bhookhe-nange Hindustan” is not only highly offensive and repulsive but also borders on treachery to the nation that has given her high living standard, high quality education and social status. This sinister statement is actuated by a diabolical intent designed to incite violence, support insurgency in the Valley, encourage Islamic terrorism and consequently destabilize and destroy
The above facts debunk the depressing theories expounded by Arundhati Roy, and shatter to pieces the myth that
Far Left loonies like Arundhati Roy have considerably lost their influence in the eyes of the Indian public. This Marxist demagogue is looking for cheap publicity by making shocking and sensational statements in support of fissiparous anti-national forces who want to tear apart

The Rally was hosted by The human rights organization Freedom Defense Initiative (FDI) and Robert Spencer of Stop Islamization of
Videos of the speakers who appeared at the Rally of Remembrance are available on the following link:
Narain Kataria, President Indian American Intellectuals Forum (IAIF) and one of the Founder of Human Rights Coalition Against Radical Islam along with Arish Sahani, VP of IAIF; Satya Dosapati of Hindu Human Rights and Bhupinder Singh Bhurji of Namdhari Sikh Foundation of USA fully supported the Rally of Remembrance and brought about 200 American Hindus to this Rally.

A couple of days before the Rally, one Youtube video in three parts (19 minutes) titled “American Hindus Say ‘No’ to the Ground Zero Mosque” was produced by Narain Kataria and circulated by Jihad Watch. That youtube video has been seen by 7500 people in 7 says. http://www.jihadwatch.org/2010/09/the-implications-of-a-mosque-at-ground-zero.html
In the above hart hitting Youtube, Kataria blamed Imam Rauf for trying to establish Sharia law (Islamic law) in this country and indirectly supporting terrorism. Kataria further said that the terrorists who killed 3000 Americans and hundreds of other innocent people in Mumbai, Godhra, Delhi, Mali, Beslan, Madrid,
Satya Dosapati was slated to speak on behalf of American Hindus on the occasion but could not speak due to lack of time. His speech was videoed and sent to the Director of Jihad Watch and has been put on his website. Some excerpts from his speech are given below:
“We need to wake up and understand the threat of Islam to our country, our civilization and everything we have built our society upon. Let us not condemn our own children to relive the barbaric history.”
“However, I do not blame Muslims. I dislike the ideology of hate and intolerance. Just look at
“Secondly, in order to win this war, you have to confront this ideology of hate. According to the Center for Study of Political Islam, 60% of Koran is political, and 19% of Koran is about violent Jihad. 75% Sira, the life of Prophet is about violent Jihad, not inner Jihad. We got to understand that Islam is both - religion and political system - with strict rules for everything in life under the oppressive Sharia and extreme intolerance and violence against infidels”

HINDU SOCIETY NEEDS TOTAL HINDU SOLIDARITY AND KSHATRIYA SPIRIT – TAPAN GHOSH
SHIVAJI MAHARAJ’S CORONATION ENACTED IN
Report from Narain Kataria in
A sort of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj’s coronation was enacted in
The divine excitement among the all-Hindu crowd gave the unique yearly event a flavor of the re-enactment of original historic event of year 1674, when the Great Shivaji Maharaj proudly declared himself the Hindu King after defeating his Islamic rivals and took the coveted title of “Chhatrapati.”
The scene was a part of the 16th Annual Hindu Sangathan Divas (Hindu Unity Day) which was organized on a grand scale by the Hindu Temple Society of North America and the Indian American Intellectuals Forum (IAIF), in cooperation with several other temple organizations in New York.
Hindus from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Afghanistan, Nepal, Guyana, Trinidad, Surinam, Fiji, and many other countries, disregarding their caste, creed, color and region enthusiastically assembled in the grand auditorium to affirm their Hindu identity and celebrate their Hindu heritage. The jubilation of the assembled audience was seen to be believed.
The overall purpose of the event was to instill a feeling of pride and brotherhood in all sections of Hindus… and to create confidence in them that they are second to none. The other purpose was to commemorate the unforgettable coronation of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj.
The turnout was beyond the expectations. The enthusiasm, dedication and commitment of the audience for Hindutva was seen to be believed. Many of the attendees traveled more than 100 miles to participate in the event emphasizing the pride in their Hindu identity. More than 1000 plus attended the function. The auditorium was full to the capacity and several people had to be disappointed for the lack of space.
The Chief Guest of the occasion was Dr. Subramanian Swamy, former Law Minister Government of
Padma Shri Dr. Sudhir Parikh, a Publisher and Philanthropist; George Subraj, a Caribbean Hindu leader; and Satya Dosapati, the President of the Hindu Human Rights were honored for their services to the Hindu causes. Ramesh Gathoria, a Director of IAIF, spoke about his efforts with the India Government Agencies and the President of country to restore the historic national emblem “Satya Mev Jayate,” which has recently been surreptitiously removed from the government documents and country’s courts.
Dr. Subramanian Swamy delivered a powerful, memorable, and awe-inspiring speech which could only be described as “superb.” During his inspiring speech, there was pin-drop silence as the audience was glued to their seats. They were listening to him with rapt attention. Dr. Swamy enthralled the audience and won their laurels. He was applauded several times by the jubilant crowd. The audience’s utmost dedication, loyalty and commitment to the Hindu cause were clearly evident all around.
Dr. Swamy emphasized that India, as a country, was the most qualified candidate to be considered a world power. Quoting references, Dr. Swamy proclaimed that, just till about 500 years ago,
Dr. Swamy clearly held the
“While USA, Japan and European countries are aging and declining, India’s average age happens to be only 29 years, and 75% of its people are below 35 years of age”, informed Dr. Swamy.
Hindus need to know their true history. On the subject of Indian History, Dr. Swamy said that if the British had not come when we were tied in fighting against Islam, and had not stolen our rocketry weapons technology from our Coromandel coast wars and then replicated them, Marathas (Hindus) would have established a Hindu Rashtra in Hastinapur (the original name of Delhi).
He bluntly rejected the notion that Hindus are timid and weak-willed people. Proving his point, Dr. Swamy said that when Islam emerged from
Referring to the rise of Taliban in our neighborhood, Dr. Swmy said that there is a possibility of attack on our country. In the past, our soldiers won several battles on battlefield but our politicians lost them on negotiation table, all due to our inept political leadership. In a couple of years, one opportunity will present itself; we should be ready to grab it.
Tapan Ghosh said that Hindu society needs the total Hindu solidarity and Kshatriya spirit. He said atrocities are being committed against the Hindus everywhere in
On the other hand, even at the slightest provocation, the shrill, hue, and cry of the Ummah across the globe rents the sky. The government scurries for cover and the media literally froths at the mouth. The need of the hour is the total freedom - from servitude, suppression, subjugation, repression, restraint, and oppression imposed mercilessly and ruthlessly by anti-Hindu forces.
We Hindus have to understand that a society or a community that cannot defend itself against the aggression cannot survive for long. It is the law of nature. Every community needs a sword-arm to protect itself against the aggression, overt or covert. This is what makes the role of a kshatriya or the warrior important in a community and in periods of turmoil and conflict, it is paramount. Hindu society is under attack from every direction and in every manner. The need of the hour is to re-ignite our kshatriya spirit. An eminent scholar Dr. David Frawley has said correctly that Hindu society needs intellectual kshatriyas to do battle with the nefarious and malignant assault of the communist dominated media and academia against the Hindu faith.
Tapan Ghosh deplored media-State nexus in
Anand Shankar Pandya said that the aim of the Hindu unity is world unity and world peace and prosperity. Hindu Unity also aims at projecting Hindu Dharma which believes in the adage of “Sarve Bhavantu Sukhi Nah”, let everybody be happy.

It is not right to call the opponents of mosque as "intolerants" or "bigots"
I do not think it is right to label those who oppose mosque near Ground Zero as “intolerants” or “bigots” because
The citizens who oppose mosque near Ground Zero believe that it is not only offensive but also reprehensible to build the mosque where 3000 innocent people were just mercilessly murdered by devout Moslems trained in Saudi Arabian mosques. These Saudi Arabian mosques are run by Wahabbi Moslems who preach extreme form of Islam where they extol the virtue of violence and hatred. Their goal is to dominate the world, subjugate infidels (Christians, Jewish, Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists and other), establish Shariah and plant Islamic flag on the Capitol Hill. It is believed that three-fourth of the mosques in
The other day Prime Minister of Turkey Tayyip Erdogan who is considered to be a moderate Moslems gave the definition of the mosques as under: The Mosques are our barracks, the domes our helmets, the minarets our bayonets and the faithful our soldiers.”
It is not right to say that all the Moslems are the terrorists. But it is also a well known fact that all the terrorists who mercilessly slaughtered innocent men, women and children in Mumbai,
It is inappropriate and unjustified to lightly dismiss the views of those who have seen Islam, Hadith and Sira in action in
If Moslems are really sincere and desire to refurbish their image in the eyes of New Yorkers, they should show some sort of sensitivity and dignity towards the hurt feelings of the families of 3000 victims of Jihad by shifting their mosque to some other place. Thus, they could gain the goodwill and sympathy of an average American.

A Rally to oppose construction of the mosque near Ground Zero was organized by “Stop the Islamization of
The rally was a big success. In this rally, 3000 to 5000 people representing Jewish, Christians, Hindus, Sikhs and Ex-Muslims whole-heartedly and enthusiastically participated.
Approximately 250 to 300 Hindus and Sikhs from tri-state area led by Narain Kataria, Arish Sahani, President and Vice President, respectively, of Indian American Intellectuals Forum; Satya Dosapati, President, Hindu Human Rights Watch; and Bhupinder Singh Bhurji, Chairman, Namdhari Sikh Foundation of USA, took part in the Rally.
Statement issued to national and ethnic media by Narain Kataria

I am the student of History. I have Master’s degree in World History. I have been watching unprecedented brutalities and savageries being perpetrated on Hindus in
I am a Hindu American living in this country for the last 40 years. I consider
We oppose construction of the mosque near Ground Zero because we feel that it is a very sensitive issue. It is an offensive and reprehensible act. It is an insult and humiliation to the families of more than 3000 victims of 9/11 - fire fighters and security personnel who lost their lives.
We oppose the mosque because the terrorists who killed 3000 Americans were trained in mosques from their childhood.
Moreover there is some sort of relationship between a mosque and terrorism. Madraasas (Islamic religious schools) are conducted by Imams. After rigorous training in madraasas, Taliban (students) becomes jihadists. After some time these jihadists become full-fledged terrorists.
For example, in
The terrorists who killed innocent people in
In addition to that 75% of these madraasas are controlled by Wahabi sect of Islam who preach extreme form of Islam.
Since 9/11/2001, the followers of the so called “religion of peace” have carried out 15101 deadly terrorist attacks and killed more than 75,000 people. (http://www.thereligionofpeace.com/ )

The other day one Imam Abdullah Faarooq exhorted Muslims to grab gun, grab sword and do you job.
Imam Abdul Rauf is a devout Muslim. He is an expert on Islam. He is a shrewd person. He must be fully familiar with the law of Al Taquia which enjoins on Muslims to lie, cheat, use stratagem and sophistry to promote the cause of Islam. We are not sure whether he is playing law of Al Taquia with naïve and gullible infidel Americans or not.
All the above factors have created a concern, suspicion and distrust in New Yorkers about the hidden intent behind the construction of the mosque; and hence the opposition.
Dr. Babu Suseelan, Director of Indian American Intellectuals Forum and former Professor of Psychology and Director of Addiction Research Foundation delivered a powerful speech narrating his experience from Hindu perspective. Here is the complete report of his speech.
STOP CONSTRUCTION OF A MOSQUE AT GROUND ZERO
Dr. Babu Suseelan
On behalf of the Hindus in America and the Indian American Intellectuals Forum, it gives me immense pleasure to know that American citizens have woken up to the suffocating, totalitarian closed political dogma which is paraded as a religion. Yes, 60% of Islamic scriptures are political dealing with treatment of infidels, non believers and 31% is about Jihad, how to make the infidel submit to Islam through deceit and terror.
Now the descendants of the closed political dogma which is meant for invasion, destruction, plunder and looting have decided to construct a 13 story Mosque cloaked as part of Cultural Center at Ground Zero. We are American citizens of different faiths protesting construction of a huge Mosque at sacred Ground Zero where more than 3000 people were killed by Islamic terrorists, for no other reason than that they were citizens of this country?
For us, Ground Zero is a war memorial, a burial ground, a sacred ground to American citizens. It invokes deep sentiments. Imam Faisal Abdul Rauf, the Islamic leader says the Mosque is intended to show good will. If the real intention is to show good will, given that it was destroyed with chantings of Allahu Akbar, should it not have worship centers for the religions of all those who lost their lives? Who is funding this so called center of tolerance? The very countries that spread intolerance. Why is the name
What is a Mosque? The Islamic Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said it clearly: “Mosques are our barracks, the Domes are helmets, the minarets are bayonets and the faithful are soldiers.” The Islamic Turkish prime minister’s version is same as that of Bin laden, Nasrallah, Ayatollah Khomeini, and Imam Awlaki. Almost every Islamic atrocities around the world are committed after fiery sermons during Friday prayers. We got to be concerned. Why? 3 out of 4 Mosques in this country are Saudi funded that teach anti American values and/or has terrorist connections. 30,000 Muslim children are taught intolerance and outright rejection of American values. Tomorrow's terrorist will not come
Throughout history Islamists have destroyed houses of worship built by virtually every other faith under the sun and build Mosques as symbol of conquests. Worldwide Islam has plundered tens of thousands of Christian, Jewish, Hindu and
Islamists follow the example of Muhammad? Muhammad offered peace when he was cornered or outnumbered and then launched surprise attack. The Mosque is not their concession to peace and reconciliation but a powerful symbol of defiance and the excuse to build more of them, fooling us by waving olive branch before our eyes.
We Hindus and Sikhs have a story to tell. Islamists killed 80 million of us since 700 AD and continues to kill. They destroyed 3,000 glorious temples and build Mosques over them or used the material from the temples as foot stone for Mosque, as symbol of conquest. In 700 AD our country, the combined
The U.S constitution guarantees freedom of expression. It is a document of equality of man and women. Koran on the other hand is most dictatorial, intolerant, divisive and instigator against the non-Muslims calling them kaffir or infidels who are equivalent to Urine, Feces, Pigs and dead body. In this context the proposed Mosque in New York City is yet another daring act of sheer provocation that will become a rallying point for the world’s worst fascism of Islamists, whose scriptures spew hatred towards Jews and infidels that is many times worse than that of Hitler's Mein Kampf? It will continue the invasion of
Unlike our constitution and laws, in every Islamic country government statute books are riddled with discriminatory laws. The blasphemy laws are used to harm non Muslims. The culture of intolerance is ingrained in every Islamist country's laws and scriptures. If Imam Rauf is sincere and committed for building bridges, he should work sincerely for removing the worst 164 Jihad verses in the Koran that advocate terrible violence and terrorism against infidels. He should work to build churches, synagogues and temples in
We are here to protest the Mosque construction. Why? I quote Einstein “The world is a dangerous place not because there are bad people doing evil things, but it is because good people who do nothing about it,”
We are here today because of our thoughts on American dream. A nation which does not proceed from noble thoughts is nothing at all. We are here to preserve our liberty, protect our democracy for us and the children yet to be born. We are here today to pay a price to protect our freedom from those who subscribes to totalitarian, conflict producing, divisive, reductionist dogma.
We appeal to all leaders of the free world to study the history of Islam. The media and the intellectuals have a great responsibility to study the intransigence of Islamists and understand the reasons behind the deafening silence of Muslims and dedicate their service to promote open, pluralistic, tolerant life in all Islamic nations.
