Hindu terrorism is a serious threat in India and is becoming one worldwide. Shoebat.com has reported on the existence of Hindu recruitment for terrorist activities, and how Hindu nationalists are running training camps where they teach them how to attack Christians in their pursuit of the “Hindutva Bharat,” or the “pure” Hindu ethnostate.
The threat which Hindu nationalists pose must not be underestimated. While most of the efforts are directed towards peoples whose ethnic roots are in the peoples of the subcontinent, they have a particular hatred for both Christianity and Islam because, as the pagan nationalists of Europe and the USA teach and is reflected in”Hindutva” ideology, religion is a reflection of one’s genetic constitution, and so to believe in a “non-Indian” religion such as Christianity is to willingly infect oneself with a virus that threatens the existence of the race itself, for just as the National Socialists of Germany taught, they believe their morality is an extension of their ethnicity as they worship their own race.
Christianity is a direct threat to the Hindu caste system which oppresses the hundreds of millions of “dalits” and “sudras,” who make up the lower classes of Indian society and are relegated to lives of poverty and misery by the higher castes. Religion is used not to bring a man closer to God, but to keep him locked into a temporal cycle of oppression using the name of religion so that a small, elite class can benefit off their poverty. It is simply an extension of the Aryan ruler who conquered India and imposed the religion on the native Dravidian peoples in order to keep them submissive to their political will.
There are multiple Hindu terrorist groups and political parties which support the “Hindutva” ideology, but veritably all of them have their roots in the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, or RSS movement that began in 1925 by Hindu nationalists and was modeled after the German national socialist movement and is still a powerful influence today. RSS terrorists and their affiliate groups, sometimes known as “saffron terrorists” because of the saffron-colored robes they wear, have been exposed for having secret meeting with major Hindu politicians and business leaders where they are actively plotting the genocide of Christians in India within the next ten years, beginning when the Western powers go to war with each other and are distracted from potentially interfering in their plans. This has been confirmed by both Christians as well as former Hindutva supporters.
One of the plans which these Hindu terrorists have is that they want to hunt down all non-Hindus in India using the Aadhar system, which is India’s biometric database tied to a national identity card and is the largest of such databases in the world. Hindutva supporters are planning to use the data in the system to not only hunt people down, but track their movements and event, as some have said, attempt to restrict commerce so that none can buy or sell without their ID card, effectively isolating and identifying Christians wherever they may try and flee to.
The Hindutva movement has been targeting Indians all over the world, especially those living in the USA as they tend to be wealthier overall, to support their movement. As such, the World Hindu Congress, which meets once every four years and is closely tied to the RSS, is going to have their next meeting in Chicago from September 7 to the 9th:
A few days from now, on September 7, 8 and 9, the World Hindu Congress will take place in Chicago, Illinois. The three-day conference will feature several sessions with a variety of speakers, including prominent Hindu leaders, members of Congress, NGO leaders, and other notable individuals. The event presents a misleading image of a harmonic, non-threatening, and diverse collection of speakers who will tackle issues that span the cultural, societal, and governmental fabric of India. However, there is a much more sinister reality at play in the background of the event.
The event is organized by a number of organizations that include the Hindu America Foundation (HAF) and the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) of America, an organization that the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) classified as a “militant religious outfit.” This is a classification that has been truly earned by the group’s leaders who, on several occasions, defended, and even called for, attacks on Dalits, Muslims, Christians, Sikhs, and other minority communities in India. Furthermore, the organization’s members have carried out extremist vigilante attacks against religious minorities accused of eating cows and for engaging in a baseless conspiracy called love jihad. Often, these attacks happen based on mere speculation and baseless accusations against individuals who are members of religious minority groups and lower castes in India.
A more disturbing theme that accompanies these organizations is their ardent adherence to Hindu nationalism, also known as Hindutva. During the reign of Prime Minister Modi and his Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), this radical Hindu nationalism has only grown. The BJP has adopted Hindutva as their party ideology and continues to advocate for policies that alienate all who do not fall within their definition of India. The party supported legislation on cow protection, which was ruled unconstitutional by the Supreme Court of India, and openly supports anti-forced conversion laws currently in force in several Indian states. The ideology draws inspiration directly from the fascist elements of the 1930s and 40s German Nazi party. Hidutva literally embodies the themes of ‘Hindu-ness’ to all of India, and all non-Hindu elements are deemed a threat to India. Minority faiths such as Islam and Christianity fall directly in the category of non-Indian and non-Hindu, and therefore pose a direct threat to India’s Hindu-only identity. The BJP often touts the slogan that to be Indian is to be Hindu.
Much of the growth of nationalism is due to the rising influence of the VHP and its parent organization, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), of which Prime Minister Modi is a member. RSS is also the grandfather organization of the BJP. The growth of the radical Hindu nationalist elements manifests in the form of increased crimes against Dalits, Christians, Muslims, and other religious minorities. The perpetrators enjoy near perfect impunity which only emboldens them to continue to harass religious minorities. Law enforcement officers and the judicial system often turn a blind eye. This is a clear indicator of the general decline in civil rights, law and order, and the overall welfare of the general public in India.
Many of the fanatical BJP and RSS leaders continue to engage in blatant hate speech and advocate for violence against all non-Hindu elements in India. They press for a complete Hindu identity for all Indians, a stance that directly violates the freedom of religion and identity guaranteed to all citizens in the Indian constitution.
In August 2014, RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat (who will serve as a speaker at the Hindu World Congress), at the golden jubilee celebration of VHP in Mumbai, said, “Hindustan is a Hindu nation…Hindutva is the identity of our nation and it (Hinduism) can incorporate others (religions) in itself.”
On March 1, 2017, RSS mahanagar pramukh Kundan Chandrawat said, “Have you forgotten Godhra? You killed 56, we sent 2,000 to the graveyard. [He makes a slicing motion with his hand and the audience applauds loudly]. We – this same Hindu community – shoved [their corpses] underground [he gestures downwards, more applause]. You have killed 300 pracharaks and activists; we will present Bharat Mata with a garland of 300,000 skulls in return.”
In August 2014, a BJP chief minister of Uttar Pradesh, Yogi Adityanath, declared at a public meeting against the alleged ‘love jihad’ of Muslims, “If they take one Hindu girl, we will take at least 100 Muslim girls. If they kill one Hindu, we will kill 100 Muslims.”
While speaking about upcoming elections in Uttar Pradesh, BJP MLA Jagan Prasad Garg reportedly told the crowd, “You will have to fire bullets, you will have to take up rifles, you will have to wield knives. Elections are approaching in 2017, begin showing your strength from now onwards.” The crowd of approximately 5,000 people chanted slogans such as, “Jis Hindu ka khoon na khaule, khoon nahin wo pani hai (Any Hindu whose blood does not boil isn’t Hindu enough).”
The hatred and intolerance dates back many years in India. In 2002, a New York Times report quoted Harish Bhai Bhatt, a VHP leader, as saying “Now, it is the end of tolerance. If the Muslims do not learn, it will be very harmful for them.” The tide of Hindu radical nationalism has been a long time coming and culminated in the election of Prime Minister Modi in 2014. The BJP, RSS, and VHP will continue to push this radical ideology as a primary component of their identity and thereby continue to incite violence and hate toward all ‘non-Indian’ elements of the country.
International Christian Concern recently surveyed 1,000 Christians across eight states in India and found that an overwhelming majority of Christians (68.8%) feel discriminated against and feel that their safety is significantly threatened. 80.25% of the Christians surveyed expressed that the perception of local police was biased against them. This is especially concerning as the survey also reported that 85.61% of the Christians surveyed sense an increase of violence from Hindu radicals against their communities, families, and places of worship. The survey served as a defining indicator of the deepening hatred festering in the radical Hindu community.
In spite of the troubling realities surrounding those who have organized the World Hindu Congress, many members of Congress and public servants have pledged their support for the event and even agreed to participate as speakers and presenters. These include Republican State Legislator Niraj Antani and Democratic Member of Congress Raja Krishnamoorthy. Even major corporations such as Walmart and FedEx are participating as speakers and presenters. International Christian Concern and many partner organizations are publicly calling these key figures to boycott the event in protest.
Needless to say, the radical organizations behind the event represent a direct threat to the values that the United States and much of the world hold dear. Their ideological stance directly violates the human rights of all people and it is not in the best interest of any representative, organization, or company to support this event. The United States and all who represent and value the freedoms and principles enshrined in the US constitution should raise their voices publicly and call attention to the realities that underpin the World Hindu Congress.

The website for the World Hindu Congress and their accounts for media tell much of what they believe in. On the site there is the open promotion of a “Swami Vivekananda,” a Hindu who visited Chicago in 1893 and made a speech about Hindu “tolerance” that even the Governor of Illinois pays his “respects” to. The full speech, which one can see here, says in it that Christians should not try to convert Hindus because it would be out of ‘character’ of the different peoples:
Much has been said of the common ground of religious unity. I am not going just now to venture my own theory. But if any one here hopes that this unity will come by the triumph of any one of the religions and the destruction of the others, to him I say, “Brother, yours is an impossible hope.” Do I wish that the Christian would become Hindu? God forbid. Do I wish that the Hindu or Buddhist would become Christian? God forbid.
The seed is put in the ground, and earth and air and water are placed around it. Does the seed become the earth, or the air, or the water? No. It becomes a plant. It develops after the law of its own growth, assimilates the air, the earth, and the water, converts them into plant substance, and grows into a plant.
Similar is the case with religion. The Christian is not to become a Hindu or a Buddhist, nor a Hindu or a Buddhist to become a Christian. But each must assimilate the spirit of the others and yet preserve his individuality and grow according to his own law of growth. (source)
This is not a speech about tolerance, but is consistent with the Hindu ideology of the national socialist “Blut und Boden,” where religion is an extension of racial or tribal identity.
However, the claims of “tolerance” are quickly dismissed from the World Hindu Congress on their own Twitter account, which tweets that Christians have “exculsionary doctrine” and then with the hashtag #HinduRise:
#HinduRise is directly affiliated with the World Hindu Congress and the call for the creation of a Hindu ethnostate, which means the murder of Christians. If that was not direct enough, on the Facebook page for the World Hindu Congress it advertises the conference as a “political conference”:
The World Hindu Congress is but one front for the many faces of the RSS and her sister movements. However, there is a deeper level to this, which is that the RSS is tied to the “counter jihad” movement through Dr. Babu Suseelan, a RSS supporter who works directly with members of the group for the advancement of Hindutva ideology and, while also calling for the genocide of Muslims as well as Christians, has been backed by Robert Spencer and Pamela’s Geller’s “Stop the Islamization of Nations” group.
Make no mistake, this meeting of the World Hindu Congress is but a front for anti-Christian terrorism being justified in the name of nationalism, and is another example as to the false dichotomy between the “left” and the “right”, for while the “Right would condemn the support of a group such as this if the “left” was the one backing it, they would immediately support the same individuals if it was believed to serve their particular interests either at the current time or in the future.
There is much to be discussed with the World Hindu Conference’s meeting, and we will be following up on this story with a more complete analysis of the situation in the subcontinent following the conference.
