NGT’s #Hinduban in Amarnath is so absurd that it feels like it is ‘planted’

For decades now, liberals have been trying to kill Hindu practices in this country by scraping the edges. Take crackers out of Diwali, take water out of Holi, don’t allow human pyramids during Dahi Handi. Plus condemn Rakhi and Karva Chauth for being “patriarchal” in nature.

These bans are justified by giving a variety of novel reasons like, saving the environment, women’s liberation, animal rights. The conclusion is always the same: more Hindu practices must be banned.

Somehow when Muslims go over again and again about how there is no God but Allah (La Ilaha Il Allah), they cannot find any tones of communal hatred in those rituals. When Muslim texts go to great lengths to condemn non-believers and idol worshippers in particular, nobody talks about how xenophobic that is.

Anyways, I digress.

But the sword thrust from the NGT yesterday to ban mantras from being chanted inside Amarnath Temple feels different.

I say that because this is not scraping on the edges like liberals have been doing for a while. This is a sword thrust through the heart of Hindus. A ban on the chanting of mantras! This feels like an outright #Hinduban.

On a lighter note, Twitter should stop giving ideas to India’s judiciary and tribunals. When they banned Dahi Handi, many right wingers resorted to sarcasm, asking the overlords if they would care to rule on how many agarbattis we can light, how many flowers we can offer and so on…

Stop doing this.

Because it seems they are listening and taking notes. We now have a ruling on exactly how many milliliters of water can be poured over the Shiv Lingam in Ujjain Mahakaal Temple. We now have a ban on mantras being chanted in Amarnath. We now have a ban on bells.

That’s right. It has got so strange that it has become its own parody. Chanting of mantras might cause avalanches?

Left wing Hinduphobia might not be too far from homophobia. A few years ago, I remember this ridiculous story about some Christian Babaji saying that gay people cause earthquakes. In fact, homophobia and hateful attitudes towards gay people provide an interesting parallel to the current atmosphere of Hinduphobia in the Indian judiciary.

Here’s a lesser known fact: in the United States, Canada and a large number of other Western countries, there are special laws against gay people donating blood. In the US, it used to be that gay people were outright banned from donating blood, but in Dec 2015, this was relaxed to a one year ban since the last homosexual encounter.

Theoretically, this ‘justified’ by claiming that gay people have higher HIV infection rates, but the real reason is obviously homophobia, because the blood being donated would simply be tested for HIV like blood from any other person.

I have been observing the liberal reaction to this Amarnath mantra ban on social media and it has been very interesting. Liberals so far have observed a strategic silence, instead of openly celebrating the victory.

There are a couple of possible reasons for this:

One, with an outright ban on mantras at Amarnath, the liberals have achieved the legal equivalent of “letting the bat do the talking”.

There’s nothing left to say. Liberals have succeeded where Islamic terrorists failed, which is shutting down Puja at Amarnath. They will simply watch, as Hindus will come to terms with this snub, gulp it down and normalise it, just as they have done so many times in the past.

After such a successful sword thrust, liberals see that it is better to lie low for a while and let Hindus get used to the new normal. Immediate celebrations might provoke Hindus and cause a counter reaction. Let Hindus forget about it, let them adjust to it.

If they punch the Hindus too quickly over and over again, the Hindus might, just might wake up and realise what is happening. Hence the liberals feel that it is better to keep a low profile and remove the limbs of Hinduism carefully, one by one, with surgical precision, and finally let us know only when ALL the limbs have been removed.

After it is all over, we might be like the Yazidis sitting at the top of Mount Sinjar, facing a choice of dying either of thirst or at the hands of marauding Islamists below.

The second possibility though is far more sinister. Like I said earlier, this time the ban feels different. Is it possible that an opportunity has been deliberately created for a certain newly minted “Shiv Bhakt” to come out in “favour of Hindus” by protesting against this absurd order?

If the second reason is true then the time is running out for the BJP to officially react to this ban and possibly mitigate its losses
