Anti-CAA protesters in Bengaluru display blatant Hinduphobia by distorting Hindu Om symbol to look like the Nazi symbol

Soon after the Citizenship Amendment Bill (now an Act) was passed in the Upper House of the Parliament, the liberals in an epic meltdown had started comparing India to Nazi Germany.

The left-sponsored protests against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act, 2019 continue to rage in various parts of the country. While the anti-CAA lobby has been resorting to severe violence, stone pelting, vandalism and arson to voice their dissent, a poster has emerged from a similar protest in Bengaluru which not only goes on to hurt Hindu sentiments but also displays the protestors bigoted and obscurantist mindset by distoring the Hindu Om symbol.

In a picture shared by a Twitter user, a protestor in Bengaluru is seen holding a placard with a distorted image of a Hindu Om symbol (ॐ) to look like the Nazi symbol. The poster also has a text message which reads: ‘F**k Hindutva’.

Aum or Om (in Devanagari ॐ) is one of the most sacred symbols in Hinduism. Hindus consider Aum to be the universal name of the Lord and that it surrounds all of creation. It is also said to represent the Hindu God, Ganesha, as the shape of the symbol loosely resembles his elephant form.

Hindus believe that the essence of the Vedas is enshrined in the word Aum. The belief that the Lord started creating the world after chanting “aum” and “atha” gives this religious symbol a fundamental relevance to the Hindu view of creation. Hence, its sound is considered to create an auspicious beginning for any task that a Hindu may undertake.

Unquestionably, the protestors are not oblivious to this basic fact and have purposely distorted the symbol to hurt the Hindu sentiments. Nevertheless, this mealiness has also gone to display the inherent Hinduphobia these radicals have been nurturing and permeating.

However, this does not come as a complete shock considering these radicals have just been taking the cue from their masters. Soon after the Citizenship Amendment Bill (now an Act) was passed in the Upper House of the Parliament, the liberals in an epic meltdown had started comparing India to Nazi Germany (the genocidal regime), that too for merely providing citizenship to persecuted minorities.

It is often believed that the Nazi symbol is a distorted Swastika, however, that is not the case. In this article published on Swrajya Magazine, historian True Indology had explained how Hitler never used the ‘swastika’ and that it was the evangelical distortion of the Hindu symbol that led to this myth.

The dedicated agenda that liberals are spreading against the CAA only shows that facts and reason do not matter to them. It does not matter to them that the rules enshrined within the CAA have been supported even by the CPI(M) and the Congress in the past. When the agenda has been decided, circumstances will be force-fitted to suit the narrative.
