(This is a response by Ms Chanchal Malviya to the article written by By Mr. Karan Thapar, "Who"s the real Hindu?" Hindustan Times, August 30, 2008)

There are people who think they are literates of highest order, when actually, they do not understand even the A B C D of life. From this article Mr. Karan Thapar proved that he is also one among them. Dr. Arindam Bandyopadhyay already gave a good reply to him. Yet I am sure, Mr. Thapar is not that matured enough to understand Dr. Arindam"s reply. So, I am trying to put things in a manner which a child can understand.

Which is good - a united family or a divided family? I would not be surprised if Dr. Tapar says in a loud voice - a divided family. It is clear from his writing. He advocates the division created in Hindu society by Christians and Muslims and he ensures that division is their right and retaliating VHP is condemned. Dr. Thapar further divides VHP from common Hindus. So division is his principles and I do not want to comment what he has installed in his own family. As Dr. Tapar, the devil"s advocate would have by heart in his mind the verses:

New Testament, Luke 12; 51-53: Jesus said, "Do you suppose that I came to bring peace to the World? No, not peace, but division. From now on a family of five will be divided, three against two and two against three. Fathers will be against their sons, and sons against their fathers; mothers will be against their daughters and daughters against their mothers; mothers-in-law will be against their daughters-in-law, and daughters-in-law against their mothers-in-law."

But for those, who understand that united family is good, we cannot deny that unity is established by regard towards our elders. This respect extends to the forefathers and ultimately shapes the culture of the family. It is actually the culture that establishes the unity. If a few people group like family requires culture to hold on to each other, how is it possible that the whole nation can remain united by abusing the culture? Who will deny that the culture of India, since eternity, is "Sanatan Dharma" or Hinduism? And is Hinduism a religion? Can Mr. Thapar show me the word "Hindu" in any of the Hindu scriptures? The culture of India is to respect, but that doesn"t include abusing ourselves. Our identity is that we are Hindus. Is VHP doing Bomb Blast at Dr. Thapar"s residence or anywhere in the world? Is the Devil"s Advocate trying to support killing of Swami Laxminananda? Does he want to say that a Hindu getting converted to Christian or Islam is right of the people but the vice-versa is not the right of the people?

Let us also understand the Devil"s Advocate. He says that if someone lures you with food and money, it is your right to convert to his faith. We can understand what Mr. Thapar is saying. This is a clear indication that people like Mr. Thapar can say and do anything if lured for money and hence he advocates this.

Graham Staines in Orissa is important for Mr. Thapar, but our own Laxminananda do not find a place in his country. He says: "I"m sorry but when I read that the VHP has ransacked and killed I"m not just embarrassed, I feel ashamed." Probably, Dr. Thapar takes pride and feels happy when hundreds are killed in Bangalore, Ahmedabad, Delhi, Jaipur, Mumbai and all over India. Dr. Thapar has every reason to take pride of Lakhs of Kashmiri Hindus thrown out of their own home and thousands massacred and their women raped. Now and then, this is happening at all places in the name of Dr. Thapar"s advocated God.

Mr Thapar, you are wrong, completely wrong to think that millions of Indians are with you. Yes, all Indians who are non-Hindus are surely with you. After all, the lure of money might be there with you too which you are advocating.

Hindus have their only homeland left to survive - India. They are abolished from their neighboring countries like Pakistan and Bangladesh. They are abolished from their own homeland dominated by Muslims. They are being killed, harassed, their women raped now and then throughout the nation. If Hindu does these things, it is surely a criminal offense. But this is all done in the name of Dr. Thapar"s advocated God.

I would follow you Dr. Thapar, if you will dare to give shelter to even a single Hindu Kashmiri family in your home, who are now migrating as refugee from Kashmir towards India. For you, 80 million lives are of no importance even though they are peaceful. You want them to shut their mouth and wait for their turn to die. And those who show courage to retaliate like VHP against murderous action, you write such a scrap.

Please, look at the news published by your own newspaper in past to get the details of data mentioned here. And your Devil"s Advocate will surely change to Angel"s Advocate, of course only if the Devil is not lured for food and money.
