In case Yohan returns to debate about Gandhi, I will lay a few accusations against Gandhi. Mind you this is just an introduction. :heh:

1) A racist 2) Borderline Paedophile 3) Supporting a murderer 4) Murderer of his wife


A few articles are available on our site that expose the fraud that Gandhi was..

Look around yourself and you'll find people with virtues are never required to demand respect since they automatically earn it. It is only those that are devoid of any virtues need to threaten and bully to gain respect. Needless to say that quran cannot be from God.

When you learn why Dalits are not mentioned in Manusmrithi, you would not only learn a bit about Hinduism, but also would learn to debate a bit more knowledgeably about Hinduism. I will wait until then.

Well I know your standard answer,Dalits are outcasts,outside the pale of Hinduism hence the Manusmriti does not mention them.
The Rig-Veda states,

He under whose supreme control are horses, all chariots, the villages, and cattle;
He who gave being to the Sun and Morning, who leads the waters, He, O men, is Indra. (2.12.7, trans. Griffith)

It further states,

Indra, you lifted up the outcast who was oppressed, you glorified the blind and the lame. (Rg-Veda 2:13:12)[6]
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indra#In_the_Rig_Veda" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

But outcastes are mentioned in the Rig Veda ,hence by the same logic Dalits can be considered Hindus.I have seen many Dalits identifying themselves as Hindu Dalit in matrimonials.

As for Aryan invasion is concerned it might have happened I have found lot of words common between Sanskrit and English and fairer complexion amongst upper echelons of Hindu society.However theories such as that are just based on assumptions and not concrete proofs.One proof for the Aryan invasion theory is that horse is mentioned quite a number of times in the Rig veda whereas no native Indian animals are mentioned.But who knows might be those horses are also present in India back then.Nobody has seen what life exactly was like in those periods.

Just google with words Devadasi and Dalit.It is not just one site but many sites that mention Dalits as being turned into Devadasis and not clean shudras as you claim.So calling them all crap won't lend you any credibility.

Elsewhere you said that Hindus of Kerala were measuring distance to be maintained between members of different castes.So they would have clearly stipulated punishments if those rules were violated.(do not know how Vijaya nagar army comprised of people of all castes if such rules are to be strictly followed).Take your own time and just mention them.Or admit that such laws do not exist.
palli or halli in Dravidian languages means a village just like gaav in Aryan languages means a village.palli or halli in Aryan Mauryan Imperial era around 200 B.C designates a tribal hamlet.So many of those in South India are indeed descendants of tribals and are still keeping up that heritage.

Fairer complexion can also be the due to a number of post-Aryan phenomena and not necessarily due to Aryans.Linguistic palaeontology is a pseudo science according to Ryan of the Old Forum.

Maitreyi,Gargi,Sita are some of the learned feminine characters in the Itihaasas and Puranas who are depicted as having engaged their male counterparts in theological debates and discussions.


Bommera Pothana a Telugu poet predating Islam in India wrote 'mudital nervagaraani vidya kaladey muddaara nerpinan'.It means is there anything that girls/women cannot learn if taught affectionately.

One medieval Telugu poetess Molla wrote the Telugu Ramayana in poetic form.Another medieval poetess Tallapaaka Timmakka wrote a lengthy poem named Subhadra Parinayam.

The poem Tiruppavai written by devotee medieval Tamil poetess Andal also known as Godadaevi is recited in Vaishnavite South Indian temples during sacred months.

The personalised form of arts and education in Hinduism is a female goddess called Saraswati.

Portuguese wrote that in Vijayanagar Empire even women were able to wield swords with as much ease as that of men.There were many Hindu queens.It was the Maratha queen Tara Bai who defeated Afghans in battles after the death of her husband.

Might be Hindus picked up those misogynist trends from their misogynist rulers who ruled for centuries together.

So misogynist tendencies might be seen in some areas but one cannot paint the whole Hindu society with the same brush.

While it is doubtful that general massacres,desecration of places of worship would cause a religion to disappear outright it will certainly cause a lowness of spirits.All human beings have more or less the same psychology, if it had happened with the muslims it can also and would have also happened in case of Hindus.

It shows that you simply do not have any clue. This is not allowed by law today. I can show similar cases where in the lower caste people harass the upper caste ones. Exceptions occur everywhere but that does not mean we start generalizing.
I saw in the history channel or the discovery channel that prior to era of granting equal rights to all irrespective of race in the U.S in 1965,whites in the racist South used to lynch or hang those black males who dared to look at white females.Back then Jim Crow laws were in place in racist U.S South.May be Yohan made up this narrative of Dalit boys getting hanged for whistling at Brahmin girls taking a cue from such stories.

I searched the net for any such punishment and didn't find proof for existence of such punishments.However in one anti-Hindu site,the Keralite upper caste Nairs could kill the Pariahs if they inadvertantly defiled them by touching.It is for such practices that swami Vivekananda called Kerala a madhouse of castes.
So you might be mistaking the Nairs for Brahmins and touching with appearing in sight.

It would be improper to generalise the situation of whole of sub-continental Pariahs with that prevalent in Kerala.

What he said is very much true and the source of such things was definately the Manusmriti which brands the whole class of Shudras(not caste remember which is a subset of class)as despicable.

Sudras are despicable
Manu 8:16 For divine justice (is said to be) a bull (vrisha); that (man) who violates it (kurute 'lam) the gods consider to be (a man despicable like) a Sudra (vrishala); let him, therefore, beware of violating justice.


However as I had pointed out earlier Sudra castes such as Reddy,Kamma,Kapu and Velama got elevated to good conduct Shudra castes,I only hope so that every caste gets elevated as such or atleast individuals are not judged based on their birth and are instead judged based on conduct as stated by Buddha.

Afterall Hinduism had been flexible or adaptable in removing the label of despicability on certain castes of Shudra class.

How seriously do the hindus take Manusmriti? Besides that ,the sanskrit word manusmriti can be broken as Manu + Smriti . Smriti means memory/laws/thoughts. Now Manu was a sage so the meaning of the word is thoughts/laws of sage Manu. SO even hindus accept that it is not a work of God.

According to Akhilesh Mittal,a historian who writes in the Deccan Chronicle, in the aftermath of the 1857 rebellion a million people were slaughtered.
Yes aftermath of 1857 was extremely brutal. So far number goes we dont have any historical witnesses. Mittal and others often takees lots of undelivered mail from those days as proof. As if nascent postal system was widely used by numeous illiterate people.It was not in distance past. We have records from many princely states. Few I am bit familiar.My small town in India was at cross road wheere Tatya Topes soldiers took refuge. All talk about hanging of lots of captured soldiers and theirsupporters, sympathizers and people who gave them refuge.

Yes English leveled quite afew villages around Delhi and in UP. If Mittal can locate numerous mass graves in UP I would believe the number. Brit troops used to bury hindus and burn muslims. If we can locate lots of cemeteries of muslims following the aftermath then we can check out his numbers. This didnt happen in historic past.

Brits of Clive time were pretty brutal and predatory when they got hold of Bengal. Lots of looting, brigandary by Brits took place. Later they will destroy lots home industry related to weaving.They were foreign rulers who came to India for business and later loved to rule innferior races.
English became wary of employing upper caste soldiers and became extremely wary of employing muslims after 1857 rebellion and as a result started to diversify and employ even those of lower caste as soldiers.Previously they believed in the theory of martial races and upper castes as well as muslims were considered being more martial.But I read that particular region of South the percentage of literates was higher prior to British rule.Both muslims and upper caste Hindus had high literacy,so Mittal's research may be true indeed.It is to one such low caste soldier that Ambedkar was born ,I read somewhere.

Would you also ascertain that nearly 6 million Jews did not perish in the Holocaust just because their mortal remains or evidence does not exist?Or do you go by pre war and post war population records of Jews to ascertain/determine the scale of the Holocaust?

I do not intend to trivialise what happened to the Jews.Both women and children were forced to go naked before forcing them to go to the gas chambers.If they tried to run away dogs were set upon them.I can understand how they must have felt.Just want to know want constitutes the hard evidence.

It has become fashionable in India to arrest and drag people to court for exercizing their right to 'freedom of expression', whether it is by speech, writing, or actions. Only USA has full 'freedom of expression' rights. In all other countries it is very subjective. There in lies the problem.

Also keep in mind that though India has freedom of religion, people are excessively religious and tend to be chavinistic on religious and communal matters. This even extends to the south asian communites in the West. These people seem to be permanently celebrating one or another religious function whether, Hindu, Sikh, Muslim or Christian during every weekend, so much so that it has become a disease.

So by the same token everyone the Portuguese,the Jews,the Catholics,the Muslims and the British deserve being forgiven as the standards were different back then when everyone subscribed to the idea of wars of conquest being just.But one just hopes so that the present day standards do not degenerate and slip once again into the ages of invasions and conquests.I personally hate to be the victim in the invaded territory and I fully support whatever measures the aggrieved party takes to shake off invasions.When the memes of the invading and the invaded parties are different,the friction experienced between concerned parties is likely to be more.
