NEW YORK: “Hindutva (Hindu-ness) is an antidote to widespread corruption in India.” “Sanskrit is the most perfect language for computers.” “Hindus must get united and take all necessary action to safeguard their future.” “Hindus must become a formidable force on the global level for Vedic Dharma.” “India is a secular country because Hindus are in the majority.” “The DNA tests conducted in many universities in USA have conclusively established that all Indians from the North to the South have the same dominant DNA composition.” “Send one million retired soldiers to Kashmir, settle them there and solve the Kashmir problem for ever.”
The above assertive statements were made by Dr. Subramanian Swamy who was the Keynote Speaker at the Eighteenth Annual Hindu Sangathan Divas (Hindu Unity Day) celebration in New York. The topic of his speech was “Globalization of Hindu Unity”.
The high profile annual event organized jointly by the Hindu Temple Society of North America and Indian American Intellectuals Forum was supported by many rich Hindus, highly placed professionals, several Hindu associations and temple managements in the area.
The general mood of public and the atmosphere in the auditorium was electrifying. The manner in which Hindus from India, Bangladesh, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Trinidad, Guyana and different states of India expressed their solidarity was highly stimulating. The energetic spirit of attendees who freely mingled with each other irrespective of the distinctions of caste, color and social status shattered the myth and debunked the obnoxious theories propounded by the prophets of doom that Hindus cannot be united.
The Hindu Unity Day celebration by now has become a tradition for Hindus of the tri-state area who eagerly await its arrival each summer. This extremely successful and ever popular event has boosted the morale of Hindus in America and created a sense of confidence in them that they are second to none. That they are a power to reckon with.
Addressing the large congregation of Hindus, some of whom traveled by cars over 100 miles and flew from Chicago and Canada to listen to the great statesman, Dr Swamy warned that Hindus should guard against the mischievous Aryan and Dravidian theory propagated by our enemies for the sole purpose of creating a rift within the Hindu society.
“The DNA tests conducted in many universities in USA have conclusively established that all Indians from the North to the South have the same dominant DNA composition,” asserted Dr Swamy.
Expressing pain and anguish at the plight of Hindu refugees from Kashmir, Dr. Swamy said that half a million Hindus driven by Kashmiri Muslims are still languishing in Indian refugee camps. This was very sad. The infuriating problems like these could actually be solved very quickly by sending one million retired Indian army-men in Kashmir and settle them in the state.
The other distinguished speakers were: Dr. Uma Mysorekar, President, Hindu Temple Society of North America; Dr. Narinder Kukar, Director of Diabetes and Endocrinology in a major teaching hospital in New York; Pt. Jagdish Tripathi, disciple of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi; Pt. Swasti Narayan Dubey, President and Priest of the Maha Lakshmi Mandir; Ms. Sheetal Shah, Senior Director of Hindu American Foundation (HAF) and Badri Hiriyur, an engineer by profession.
Earlier Indira Narasimharajan welcomed the audience. Priya Sahani Sood emceed the program brilliantly, Arish Sahani talked about the essay competition open to the students in the age group of 11-25 regarding Hindu Unity Day, and Narain Kataria thanked the audience for their participation, enthusiasm, support, vitality and vigor.
