Talk with Satish Sharma about British Hindu community
What is HinduOdium?
“Odium” is a Latin word, it means essential to have an irrational hatred towards something without having any reason to, it purely, solely hatred of something. This coined the word HinduOdium.
[dropcap color=”#008040″ boxed=”yes” boxed_radius=”8px” class=”” id=””]H[/dropcap]induOdium – A passionate hatred for all Hindus, a precise execution of “vilified and denigrated by association”, co-ordinated with generous helpings of entirely unjustified indignation, self-righteousness and the unrelenting flagellation of the British Hindu community. In 2013, Lord Harries skilfully misrepresented data, which if true, branded 50% i.e., 1 in 2 of all the British Hindus, as being guilty of being born prejudiced, perpetrators of discrimination, on the daily basis.
The British Hindu community is about 900,000 strong in the United Kingdom (UK), comprising of about 2% of the population. It has been a very quiet and busy community and established itself in a manner in which it draws respect and appreciation from the host community.
The phrase that often used is “Phobia” people who want to refer irrational fear of something they call it phobia but the equipment does not exist with regard to Hindus.
Let’s look at the statistics of British Hindu community –
• Hindus are 2% of population roughly say 900,000.
• They contribute 6% of GDP, which is significant.
• The 2nd lowest prisoners in UK, i.e., less than 500 people from Hindu Dharmic Community.
We have a positive profile, our way of work, manners and spirituality has influenced domestic population. One in eight workers are of Indian Origin; also there two ministers of Indian background.
Who coined the word Dalit?
The “Criminal Tribes Act” 1871 which labelled whole communities of Hindus as being “Guilty at Birth”, in precisely the same manner as Lord Harries Amendment seeks to do today, 145 years later. This was the genesis of the Dalit or Untouchables.
The answer to the question “who created Dalit or Untouchables” is that the Anglican Missionaries and their agents of the British Raj, created Dalits in the Anglican “concentration camps” under the authority of Criminal Tribes Act 1871.
[dropcap color=”#008040″ boxed=”yes” boxed_radius=”8px” class=”” id=””]T[/dropcap]he Christian concept of Caste into Law, the Church of England sought to protect its centuries old anti-Hindu negative-branding project. The “divide and rule” policy being so skilfully executed to separate and maintain distance between Dharmic communities along the lines of caste required the concept of caste to be enshrined in law.
Excerpts from the book by Satish Sharma of NCHT (National Counsil of Hindu Temples) on Caste Amendment Law
The Church of England has acted in bad faith and aggressively towards British Hindus, Sikhs and Jains. We may have no choice but to explore all avenues to ensure the protection and wellbeing of our Dharmic Community against the aggression of the professional clergy of the Church of England, whilst welcoming closer interaction with grass roots Anglicans and Christians, especially those no longer infected with supremacist conversionary predatorial predilections.
The permanent solution is to eradicate any Caste discrimination and to erase the Colonial concept of Caste from Consciousness altogether and clearly not to preserve and sustain it, by enshrining it into law.
