Rituals play a prominent role in every culture

Ancient Indian Religion.

Hinduism is a practice, which is known for its rich rituals. From the Vedic ages, Hindus perform certain activities right from the time they wake up in the morning until the time they sleep. These activities may include, Pooja (worshipping lord) and Karya (Working), which integrate their culture. The events manifest a certain beauty, without which Hinduism is incomplete.

Different sects of Hindus worship different deities. Various Poojas are held for different festivities and occasions called the ‘Utsavas’. People during different festivals not just gather to worship the god, but also come together to celebrate life, with beautiful colours, clothes and delicious food. This itself proves that rituals manifest the beauty and celebration of life in Hinduism.

Meaning Of Rituals:

However, certain sections of the society have a preconceived notion about the rituals Hindus perform, which leads to them being called ‘superstitious’ or ‘overtly religious’. But is it fair to tag them? What is the meaning of the ritual? Ritual can be any activity which you perform. It is a way of communication. A teacher teaching his or her students can be a ritual. A mother feeding her baby is a ritual. Ritual is a generic term, which must not be linked with traditions, religion and beliefs? And, even if it is associated with these customs, then Hinduism should not be the only target. Every religion follows some beliefs. For example, a Muslim reading Namaz is a ritual; Christians visiting church on every Sunday is a ritual or Thanksgivings, when people have dinners with their friends and families. Hindus may have more rituals to act on than Muslims or Christians, but this gives no one the right to invalidate their belief. The rituals which Hindus perform don’t just have a connection with God, but also scientific reasons behind them. For example, Surya Namaskar is good for health as facing the light at that time of the day is good for your eyes, and makes you a morning person.

The reason why people not like rituals is due to their stifling and obligatory nature. Since our childhood, we have been asked to adhere to certain activities, and never taught the reason behind them. This develops disconnection towards them.

Benefits Of Rituals:

Rituals should be seen as art. We must not do it for the sake of doing it. We must sense its meaning like we sense the meaning of art. There is a side of these customs which we don’t want as well, but at the end of the day, they generate a sense of unity and belongingness. They bind you as a community. As long as we live as humans, these practices will have an integral role to play in our life, which can not be neglected.

We often see people initiating debates on topics promoting political interests, but very few are there who can prove their point in front of the masses. Hindutva Political Analyst, Mr. Jitender Khurana firmly believes in putting forward his views when it comes to people’s safety on the verge of national security. Read on to find out why he feels that the division of Bangladesh is needed at the moment to safeguard 1.5 crores Bangladeshi ‘Hindus’ currently living in the country.

Jitender Khurana who is currently the President at Aryavart Mahasabha expresses his opinions in an interview with NewsGram. According to him, Bangladeshi ‘Pakistanis’ are here with an objective, i.e. to make a complete Ismalic country. The plan was initially made around 3-4 decades ago but it started forming a picture by the year 2000. The plan comprises of forming an independent Islamic country named as ‘Mughalistan’. The picture shown below can help you get a clearer view of the same.

 

This is how the map of 'Mughalistan' looks like.

More About Mughalistan

This country is primarily referred to as the corridor pathway between Pakistan and Bangladesh, which is a proposed homeland for the Muslim community. This means the agenda is to occupy the major land of India’s current geography and devote it to the minorities of the country. It is directly depicting that it does not want to give any space to the Hindus, who are the original native of the country; says Jitender.

We all are very aware of the fact that Bangladesh is currently suffering too much. In fact, the Hindus out there are forcibly converted into Muslims with each day passing by. Our honorable Prime Minister Narendra Modi used to talk about the division of Kashmir into 4 parts for peaceful living. I would highly appreciate it if they go-ahead for the division of Bangladesh in the first place, Jitender Khurana says.

There have been extreme cases of violence, rape, and killing of innocent people every day. Why is the government not doing anything for those people?

Recently, a 13-YO old Hindu girl was brutally raped by her neighbor and the accused has still not been arrested. The only reason was the involvement of the major persons in this vicious cycle of deception and corruption. According to Jitender, Jihadis have a deceptive nature. They cannot perform tasks without deceiving the other person. They are destructive too as they often believe in violence. As per a report, there is a major number of Bangladeshi ‘Muslims’ who are involved in serious crimes in India as well.

What is the solution to this problem? 

Hindutva Political Analyst, Mr. Jitender Khurana also talks on the permanent solution to this huge problem. He thinks that Bangladesh must be divided into two equal parts for providing people with peaceful living conditions. One part completely devoted to Bangladeshi ‘Hindus’, Parsis and other peaceful minorities; and the other part for the Muslims out there. This solution can help communities live in peaceful environments without compromising their needs and interests.

Mr. Khurana also mentions, “I am ready to provide 1 lakh youth and expect Indian government to give training and weapons to attack bangladesh to divide into 2 parts. So, we are ready to take casualty on us to make my vision a reality”.

‘I feel that this step should be taken at the topmost priority because it is high time to look after our own people living in other neighboring countries, and looking after their welfare and dignity simultaneously’, told Jitender.

    • This is your Islam! 1.5 crores Bangladeshi ‘Hindus’ living in such heinous conditions where their chance of survival has almost reduced to null. But still Indians do not support this ideology.
