Hindu dharma is implicitly at odds with monotheistic intolerance. What is happening in India is a new historical awakening... Indian intellectuals, who want to be secure in their liberal beliefs, may not understand what is going on. But every other Indian knows precisely what is happening: deep down he knows that a larger response is emerging even if at times this response appears in his eyes to be threatening.

NCERT has hurt Hindu sentiments: VHP

Press Trust of India
Lucknow, August 26, 2005

The Vishwa Hindu Parishad on Friday claimed that NCERT had hurt the sentiments of 90 crore Hindus in the country by depicting Lord Ram and Lord Krishna as imaginary in its text books.

"It is a grave insult to the faith and belief of Hindus and appears to be an international conspiracy to undermine the Indian culture, VHP media incharge Sharad Sharma said in a statement.

"While all other countries concentrated first on protecting their indigenous culture after attaining independence from foreign rule, Congress which has ruled the country for most of our independent years, has always tried to damage the Indian culture," he claimed.

The so-called NCERT experts, motivated by Christian missionaries, were distorting facts in the text books, in order to attain international honours and money, he said.

The NCERT should issue an apology immediately and the Government should ban the text books containing the distorted descriptions.
