Bombay is the most appropriate city to have this meeting [on ‘Leaders’ Idea of Nations in the Context of Zionism and Hindutva’] because Bombay played host to the Jews who came looking for protection. Not only did Bombaiites look after them, but so did the citizens of Cochin. Synagogues were built in both cities, and Israel has repeatedly mentioned that in an unprecedented manner India looked after the Jews without any difficulty whatsoever and treated them as one of their own.

This subject of Zionism and Hindutva was first introduced to me when in 2007, the great sage, who is no more, Swami Dayananda Saraswati of Coimbatore founded the Arsha Vidya Gurukulam and created, for the first time in our history, a Hindu Dharma Acharya Sabha where all the senior-most sadhus and shankaracharyas collected. And this Acharya Sabha was almost like Lok Sabha, Rajya Sabha and Acharya Sabha. So, it has great respect.

The chief rabbi from Israel was invited to Delhi, along with the American Jewish Committee’s chairman. And we had a conference on Judaism and Hinduism, and discussed thesimilarities and differences between them. In the process, there was a follow-up conference in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, and finally, we came to an agreement. The only difference noted by the rabbi was that we are a polytheistic country and Israel and Judaism believe in a single god. But Dayananda Saraswati explained that we have only one ‘ishwar’ and his manifestations are many. So, we also believe in one ‘ishwar’ and one god, and therefore there is no difference between Judaism and Hinduism. This was accepted, and then it was decided by a resolution in Jerusalem, that we will treat both Judaism and Hinduism as sister religions.

Now, the word Hindutva simply means ‘Hinduness’ – the quality of being a Hindu. It is not necessarily restricted to sanatan dharmis or any other school of religion within the framework of Hinduism. The word Hinduism is wrongly taken as a word created by the Arabs because they couldn’t pronounce ‘Hindu’ — that’s not correct. As far back as 700 BC, the Chinese referred to India as ‘Indu’, and even today, in their official communication in Chinese, they call India ‘InduGo’, which translates to Hindu Rashtra. (‘Go’ means country).

So, I tell my communist friends, “You’re all great worshippers of China, how come you don’t also adopt India and call it Hindu Rashtra?” This word, ‘Hindu’, has perhaps come out of a sandhi of two words. I’m told it is there is one Purana, but I have not been able to trace it. ‘Hi’ from the Himalayas and ‘indu’ from Indu Sagar. Just as Shankaracharya defined’Dravid’. He said ‘dra’ refers to where the three coastlines meet. That means South India, and not, as the British made it out, a separate race called ‘Dravid’ and a separate race called ‘Aryan’. The word ‘Aryan’ doesn’t exist in any of our scriptures. ‘Arya’ only means a civilised person and a good person with values. Unfortunately, the British distorted it.

Hindutva is a belief system, which we acquire from the religion and use it in our day-to-day activities. That means that the one thing that is common between Judaism and Hinduism is that both don’t believe in active conversion. Hindus believe that if you want to be a Hindu, you just have to declare you’re a Hindu. There is no ceremony, and nobody goes around propagating that we should convert. Same thing with Judaism, they have very strict rules on who would be called a Jew. So, this is another commonality.

As I said, we both believe in one god, we have many manifestations of the same. Now the question is — what is the implication for the state of India and the state of Zion [Israel]? First of all, both states claim to be a continuing cultural state. Judaism and the Jewish state are considered a continuation of the past. There were interruptions, but in the end, the Jewish state was recreated and called Zion. And the Zionist state, [which was named] by [Theodor] Herzl meant that the ancient name for the state of Israel was Zion.

Second, in the case of India, while we are not a Hindu state, the Constitution has many articles which we can claim are drawn from Hindu philosophy. One is that all religions lead to god and the state will be totally neutral to it. Article 25 allows every religion to practice freely and uninterrupted. Similarly, in the Constitution, there is Uniform Civil Code [in directive principles] because we treat men and women equally, and therefore, the code should be uniform for all. There should be no superiority or inferiority.

I would say women enjoyed a higher status than men in ancient India, because if you look at Brahma’s cabinet, all the important portfolios are with women. Education is with Saraswati, finances with Laxmi and defence with Durga. So, I once asked Swami Dayananda Saraswati, “You mean male gods don’t have any portfolios?” He said, “There is one male god that does. Information broadcasting is with Narad muni.” And you know the status of Draupadi – a war had to be fought to avenge her humiliation. The Mahabharata war essentially came out of that. Similarly, the finishing of Ravana’s empire of Lanka happened because Sita insisted that Ram come and finish him off, otherwise she would not leave. Because Hanuman went to save her first and take her to Ram, but she said no, not unless Ravana is finished off.

Women have been very obstinate in Hindu society and even today we experience that. We may pretend that men are the head of the household, but it’s actually the women who run most homes in the country.

This question [of whether] the Constitution treats both men and women equally would apply equally to the Zionist state as well as our country.

Another important thing, we are both non-active on the question of conversion. We both don’t believe in conversion as an active form of propagation.

And the most important is that Zion and the Hindutva state is today under attack from Islamic extremists, and therefore there is a commonality in our viewing of international events. Both of us should come together. When the Bombay attacks took place on 26/11, the terrorists who came, made a special target of a Jewish home here and brutalised it. Therefore, we know that Islamic terrorist forces have targeted both Hindu society and Jewish society. And that means we have to be together for the future. There is a clash of civilisations internationally, as Professor Huntington of Harvard University had written many years ago, and it is important to develop a very close relationship between Zion and the Hindutva state of India.

  1. Another mind masturbating imagination coming from a racist indiot swamy.

    First country to recognise the state of Israel was Turkey. During holocaust (of which WW1&2 were not the only ones, there were others previously too), it is these muslim countries like Turkey and Iran who hosted the largest population of jewish community…and we still do it again.

    Unfortunately, like rogue elements in every state and nation, jewish community had theirs too. Except in jewish ommunity, theyre quite powerful and the same states that helped out the masses are seen as rivals or enemies, in case of Iran.

    As for taking care of Pakistan, i think Indians need to wake up, seriously. Israel cannot and will not engage directly with Pakistan; a country created on same ideology as Israel, potent and with a very powerful army, with whom the israeli army have had interactions with.

    I guess the current climate of kashmir does perhaps drive sentiments, however it is quite clear which side of kashmir and nation has issues (india) and like it or.not the army of that side is not well equiped trained or disciplined as Pakistan. So is Swamy going to come and fight or why do some indians feel israel is going to take care of Pakistan, when it has indirect engagements via Turkey still today?

    Or are indians like their big egos and less small abilities assuming the world is an idiot who will beleive whatever they say? Or are you indians being drawn into a game you dont understand?

    China, Russia and Pakistan are far more potent and powerful; region is being polarised. This corner has 4 nuclear power nations, you think india will survive a fall out? No, forget others…there will be no India, so wake up and stop acting like a nation of fools, led by a monkey looking midget called Modi.

    • You ‘Muhammadi-cult’ are afraid of Hindus and Jews. You want to forget your barbaric scriptures like qoran and hadis, where Jews described “only one strong enemy of islam & musalmans” 🤫 even so called allah promised, He surely banished and vanished Jews but unsuccessful. 🤣
      Dont worry, take a look in qoran you will be find those nonsense ayahs easily! A few years ago, 6 Muslims strongest (👎)countries tasted their loosing within 6 days fight and surrendered on the foot of Israel, whole world knows 🤣 Your father pakistan is always a looser agains India, see free Bangladesh!

      There was some atomic “sutli-bombs” in their hands but China keeps there trigger as their own. So… F-16 or atomic boms never lunch without their (china & america) kind-permissions!

      I think, you should take care off your cult, research “why whole world hate Islam” 🤔
      Thank you! Take care of allah! 🙏🙏🙏

  2. Zionism and Hinduism should come together and make Subrmaniam Swamy the chief leader (sarcasm). Swamy is a narcissistic politician forever jumping from one controversial subject to another – all to get attention. He also has a history of jumping from one party to another. He has been part of BJP and then its opponent. He was close to the Gandhi family and then an opponent. We need not bow down to Israel any more than we need to bow down to Islamic countries. We must do what is best for India. Swamy’s ideas are about what is best for publicity (for him).

    • You have to bow down to some rapists of your mother too! 😋 Its the cause, India was slaved many times as your thinking said! Fake name Cowards!

  3. In my opinion, India should provide a place for Israel operate upon. Possibly allocate certain J&K region to Isreal so that they have autonomy to handle and take care of. It will help India, it will help Isreal to settle certain Jews in valley and perfect fit between India, China and Pakistan. They will take care of Pakistan. Or also we can give entire POK to Isreal to manage. I am sure they will be interested in that area, very strategically located, in between Pakistan, India, Afghanistan and China. They will love it and India will enjoy that.

  4. Pakistan’s army motto: ‘Jihad-fi-Sabilillah’
    The real objective of Islam is to shift the lordship of man over man to the lordship of al Lah on the earth and to stake one’s life and everything else to achieve this sacred purpose.
    Spreading the word of al Lah through force. As long as there are nonbelievers, islam will be always at war. It intends to bring forth the peace of islam by conquest, subjugation, humiliation and murder. That’s what Pakistan is carrying out…their prophet’s decree.

  5. do you know your mad prophet thought of blacks as satans? Why is your prophet sending blacks to Hell because of their black skin? He told black person became black, because of sin. White Kabah stone became black, because of sin. According to him black is a penalty; white is a reward. islam is a white supremacist religion. Here are relevant verses: enjoy!

    Abu Darda’ reported God’s messenger as saying, “God created Adam when He created him and struck his right shoulder and brought forth his offspring white like small ants. And he struck his left shoulder and brought forth his offspring BLACK as though they were charcoal. Then He said to the party on his right said, ‘To paradise, and I do not care’, and He said to the party in his left shoulder ‘To hell, and I do not care’.” Ahmad transmitted it. (Mishkat Al Masabih, English translation with explanatory notes by Dr. James Robson [Sh. Muhammad Ahsraf Publishers, Booksellers & Exporters, Lahore-Pakistan, Reprint 1990], Volume I, Chapter IV, Book I.- Faith, pp. 31-32)

    Narrated AbudDarda’
    Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) said: Allah created Adam when He had to create him and He struck his right shoulder and there emitted from it white offspring as if they were white ants. He struck his left shoulder and there emitted from it THE BLACK OFFSPRINGS as if they were charcoal. He then said (to those who had been emitted) from the right (shoulder): For Paradise and I do not mind. Then He said to those (who had been emitted) from his left shoulder: They are for Hell and I do not mind.
    Transmitted by Ahmad. (Al-Tirmidhi Hadith, Number 38- ALIM CD ROM Version)

    Narrations even command that any person claiming that Muhammad was black be put to death!

    Ahmad ibn Abi Sulayman, the companion of Sahnun, said, “Anyone who says that the Prophet was black SHOULD BE KILLED.” (Muhammad Messenger of Allah (Ash-Shifa of Qadi ‘Iyad), Qadi ‘Iyad Musa al-Yahsubi, translated by Aisha Abdarrahman Bewley [Madinah Press, Inverness, Scotland, U.K. 1991; third reprint, paperback], p. 375; capital emphasis ours)

    Ahmad ibn Abi Sulayman, Sahnun’s companion, said that whoever says that the Prophet was black IS KILLED. The Prophet was not black. (Ibid., p. 387; capital emphasis ours)

    The apostle said, “Whoever wants to see Satan let him take a look at Nabtal b. al-Harith!” He was a sturdy black man with long flowing hair, inflamed eyes, and dark ruddy cheeks. He used to come and talk to the apostle and listen to him and then carry what he had said to the hypocrites. It was he who said: “Muhammad is all ears: if anyone tells him anything he believes it.” (Sura 9:61) (Ibn Ishaq, Sirat Rasulallah, translated as, The Life of Muhammad by A. Guillaume, page 243)

    Qur’an 39:60
    And on the day of resurrection you shall see those who lied against Allah; their faces shall be blackened. Is there not in hell an abode for the proud?

    9:61 “Gabriel came to Muhammad and said, ‘If a black man comes to you his heart is more gross than a donkey’s.’”

    Sahih Bukhari 9:87:161 Narrated ‘Abdullah: The Prophet said, “I saw (in a dream) a black woman with unkempt hair going out of Medina and settling at Mahai’a, i.e., Al-Juhfa. I interpreted that as a symbol of epidemic of Medina being transferred to that place (Al-Juhfa).”

    Al-Tabari, Vol. 2, p. 11, p. 11 Shem, the son of Noah was the father of the Arabs, the Persians, and the Greeks; Ham was the father of the Black Africans; and Japheth was the father of the Turks and of Gog and Magog who were cousins of the Turks. Noah prayed that the prophets and apostles would be descended from Shem and kings would be from Japheth. He prayed that the African’s color would change so that their descendants would be slaves to the Arabs and Turks.

    27:82 “and there will be no disbeliever left without it. Making a black spot on his face, which will spread until all his face is black as a result.”

    39:60 “On the day of judgement will thou see those who told lies against allah: their faces will be turned black.”

    Quran (3:106) Allah says On the Day [of Judgment] when some faces will shine [with happiness] and some faces will be dark [with grief]. And as for those with faces darkened, [they shall be told:] “Did you deny the truth after having attained to faith? Taste, then, this suffering for having denied the truth!”

    Quran (80:38-42) Allah says Some faces will on that Day be bright with happiness, laughing, rejoicing at glad tidings. And some faces will on that Day with dust be covered, with darkness overspread: these, these will be the ones who denied the truth and were immersed in iniquity!

    Chapter 23: Bilal bin Rabah
    Narrated Qais: Bilal said to Abu Bakr, “If you have bought me for yourself then keep me (for yourself), but if you have bought me for al Lah’s sake, then leave for al Lah’s work.”

    After the death of prophet, Bilal was still a slave. If Bilal was freed, why was he begging Abu Bakr for freedom? prophet never freed him.
    Sahih al-Bukhari 3755
    Book 62, Hadith 102
    USC MSA Web: Vol. 5, Book 57, Hadith 99

    Sahih Muslim- The book of Prayers (Kitab Al-Salat) Abu Dharr reported: messenger said: His prayer will be cut off by (passing of an) ass, woman, and black dog….The Black dog is a devil.”

  6. In islam, there’s no free will. Sin or good deeds don’t matter in deciding whether you going to heaven or hell. al Lah has written your destiny, even before you were born:

    “….He created them for hell while they were yet in their father’s loins.”

    “..do you blame me for action, which allah had written in my fate forty years before my creation?”

    “…a man may do the deeds of the people of paradise till there is only a cubit or two between him and paradise, and then that writing precedes and he does the deeds of the people of the fire (hell) and enters it.”

    For details:

    Why Blame Adam, Blame allah!
    The prophet said, “Adam and Moses argued with each other. Moses said to Adam, ‘O Adam! You are our father, who disappointed us and turned us out of paradise.’ Then Adam said to him, ‘O Moses! allah favored you with his talk (talked to you directly) and he wrote (the Torah) for you with his own hand. Do you blame me for action which allah had written in my fate forty years before my creation?’ So, Adam confuted Moses, Adam confuted Moses,” the prophet added, repeating the statement three times.”

    This was not Adam’s sin. This was allah’s sin. Adam was a victim. allah placed black magic on Adam, even before he was born. He cannot change. He cannot choose. This was plan of allah. If God made Adam sin, then God was the devil. Adam won the debate by saying that Adam refuted Moses. He made Adam sin, then why judge him on that sin? There was no free Will. If allah had predetermined/ preordained Adam, then why Adam was kicked out of heaven? This’s about fate not being in your hands!

    Babies Predestined For Hell:
    Sahih Muslim #2662 c
    Chapter 6: The meaning of “every child is born in a state of Fitrah” and the ruling on the dead children of the disbelievers and of the muslims.

    “Aisha, the mother of the believers, said that allah’s messenger was called to lead the funeral prayer of a child of the Ansar. I said: allah’s messenger, there is happiness for this child, who is a bird from the birds of paradise, for it committed no sin nor has he reached the age, when one commit sin. He said: ‘Aisha, per adventure, it may be otherwise, because god created for paradise those, who are fit for it, while they were yet in their father’s loins and created for Hell those, who are to go to hell. He created them for Hell, while they were yet in their father’s loins.”

    Every child is born as a muslim. His father is a muslim. His mother is a muslim. Why is this child ordained to go to Hell? A person can rape, pillage and murder and still go to paradise. There’s nothing called ‘innocent’ in islam. There’s no justice and no logic. Everybody’s fate is predetermined, whether you have committed sin or not. That’s your destiny!

    Abdul and the Forty Sperms!
    Chapter 1
    Narrated ‘Abdullah:
    The prophet said, “Each of you collected in the womb of his mother for forty days, and then turns into a clot for an equal period (of forty days) and turns into a piece of flesh for a similar period (of forty days) and then allah sends an angel and orders him to write four things, i.e., his provision, his age, and whether he will be of the wretched or the blessed (in the hereafter). Then the soul is breathed into him. And by allah, a person among you (or a man) may do deeds of the people of the fire till there is only a cubit or arm-breadth distance between him and the fire (Hell), but then that writing (which allah has ordered the angel to write) precedes, and he does the deeds of the people of paradise and enters it; and a man may do the deeds of the people of paradise till there is only a cubit or two between him and paradise, and then that writing precedes and he does the deeds of the people of the fire and he enters it (hell)”

    Why do Hajj? Why do Salat? Why do Jihad? Why do fasting? If you’re going to paradise or hell anyways! A software developer called allah will write over your bad or good deeds!

  7. md.’s Only True Prophecy:
    prophet md. prophesied in the following quran verses that if a false prophet arose, al Lah would cut off his aorta. Moreover, md. revealed that no misfortune can befall md. without leave of al Lah. Verses are:

    quran 69:43 (This is) a message sent down from the the lord of the worlds.
    44 And if the messengers were to invent any sayings in our name,
    45 We should certainly seize him by his right hand,
    46 And we should certainly then cut off the artery of his heart:
    47 Nor could any of you withhold him (from our wrath).

    quran 64:11 No kind of calamity can occur, except by the leave of allah: and if any one believes in allah, guides his heart: for allah knows all things.

    quran 57:22 No misfortune can happen on earth or in your souls but is recorded in a decree before we bring it into existence. This is truly easy for allah.

    And then this happened….

    Muhammad ibn Amr said on the authority of AbuSalamah, and he did not mention the name of Abu Huraira: The messenger of allah used to accept presents, but not alms (Sadaqah).
    This version adds: So a Jewess presented him at Khaybar with a roasted sheep , which she had with poisoned. The messenger of allah ate of it and the people ate. He then said: Take away your hands (from the food), for it has informed me that it is poisoned. Bishr ibn al-Bara’ ibn Ma’rur al-Ansari died. So, he (the prophet) sent for the Jewess (and said to her); What motivated you to do the work you have done? She said: if you were a prophet, it would not harm you; but if you were a king, I should rid the people of you. The messenger of allah then ordered regarding her and she was killed.
    He then said about the pain of which he died: I continued to feel pain from the morsel, which I had eaten at Khaybar. This is the time, when it has cut off my aorta.
    Hasan Sahih (Al-Albani)
    Sunan Abi Dawud 4512

    prophet said to the Jewess, “allah will not let you do that.”
    Sahih al-Bukhari:2617 Muslim 2190

    Narrated ‘Aisha:
    The people in his ailment in which he died, used to say, “O ‘Aisha! I still feel the pain caused by the food I ate at Khaibar, and at this time, I feel as if my aorta is being cut from that poison.”
    Sahih al-Bukhari – Military Expeditions Led by the prophet; 4428
    Book 64, Hadith 450
    USC MSA Web: Vol 5, Book 59, Hadith 713

    “Used to say” “I still feel “ – Not one time affliction, but md. died a slow painful death.

    al Lah killed md. just as he prophesied by cutting off his aorta, because md. was a liar and a false prophet. Below is a Fatwa from an islamic site discussing the issue:
