Gandhi, Another Domitian In A Pacifist Guise

Post  Admin on Tue Oct 27, 2009 9:41 am


"Mahatma" Gandhi's Precocious Humbuggery, Chicanery and Blase Hypocrisy

Once there was Domitian and there was Nero and others of their kind, who sought to destroy Christianity by violence. But the enemies of God having realized that the "blood of martyrs is the seed of more Christians," have changed their tack and now they profess to seduce Christians away from the Gospel of Jesus Christ by professing a pretended Gospel of a Love greater and more "ecumenical" than that of Jesus Himself.

Such was Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, "Mahatma" Gandhi to his accomplices and dupes.

Gandhi was a humbug and a bigot, who believed in the racial superiority of the Hindu Indian, and whose whole life's mission was to defend and propagate that belief.

As part of his strategy, he pretended to be an "open-minded seeker" after the truth, a guise that acted as a passport or key to open doors to the hearts and minds of Western imbeciles, largely Protestants, who, having rejected the orthodoxy of the Catholic Church, have constantly demonstrated that they are incapable of straight thinking.

Gandhi pretended that Christians should not affirm an absolute belief in the rightness of Christianity, labelling such a belief "an assumption of omniscience and infallibility." On the contrary, Gandhi taught an unquestioned superiority and self-sufficiency of Hinduism that, by his own standards, could only arise from "omniscience and infallibility."

Gandhi insistently taught that Christians should not proselytize, and that he knew Christianity better than Christians. That was only an argument to pimp a prostituted Christianity, a bogus, Satanic Gospel of Gandhi that negates Jesus Christ and His Gospel....

Gandhi pretended to be a pacifist, but that was only a subterfuge. He himself admitted that if he had nuclear weapons, he would have gladly used them against England ("If we had the atom bomb, we would have used it against the British" – Mahatma Gandhi, Prayer Speech of June 16, 1947, The Last Phase, Vol II, p. 326).

This "pacifist" tirelessly stirred up hysteria against Christian proselytization by a lying propaganda campaign, lies upon lies, misrepresentations.

He set the agenda for anti-Christian legislation in Independent India and for the Niyogi and Sardar Panikker Witch hunts, by affirming time and again his intention of perpetrating violence against Christian missionaries, which is violence that strikes at the very heart of the Christian religion.

As such, he is the Spiritual Godfather of the murderers of Christian missionaries and of Christians by the Hindu "nationalist" (sic!) thugs such as Baba Bajrangi, Bal Thackeray, Dilip Singh Judeo, Pravin Togadia, Dara Singh, Pramod Mutalik, etc., maurading all over India and who are what they are because they are, first of all, Gandhi's disciples!

He is thus the true murderer of men such as Graham Staines, and of the numerous victims of Hindu genocide against the Panna Christians in Orissa. Certainly, his role was far more involved than that of Saul who watched over the belongings of the murderers of St. Stephen Protomartyr....

Gandhi said: "I can see the coming conflict between the missionaries and the Hindu workers... the latter having no difficulty in making their service commendable to the Hos, the Mundas and the others."

This is exactly what the Disciples of Gandhi, such as Lakshman Dhobi, the self-styled "Swami Lakshman-Ananda," Patriarch of Gond Hindu terrorism against Panna Christians in Orissa.

Gandhi claimed that Christians "denationalized" converts. For centuries, Hindus disdained to commerce with the tribals, such as the Gonds, and anybody who taught them Sanskrit, or any Gond who attempted to learn Sanskrit, the "sacred language of the Hindus," was liable to be murdered.

Today, there is an entire industry of Hindus hyper-anxious to teach Sanskrit to the tribals, to de-nationalize, de-tribalize them, and to Hinduize them into more clones of Hindu terrorist thugs, in Gujarat, in Maharashtra, in Orissa, and everywhere in India. This is the poisonous legacy of Gandhi's hypocrisy!

Gandhi put a sophisticated, subtler face on the Hindu bigotry which denies that any soul may convert to Christianity for genuine reasons. His vicious lies have been repeated - only in cruder, more brutish manner - by the Congress, the Niyogi Commission, Sardar Pannikker, the B.J.P., the Sangh Parivar, etc.

Gandhi claimed that he was not interested in converting anybody away from Christianity and to Hinduism, but that was a blatant lie.

Gandhianism was all about converting Christians away from Christianity and to Gandhianism, which is Hinduism under a subterfuge. Gandhi actively proselytized and converted, soliciting and obtaining the apostasy of Tamil Christians, of European and English men and women such as "Sister Nivedita," etc.

Gandhi disputed that Christianity "is the only true religion," because he reserved that honor for Hinduism.

Gandhi disputed Reginald Heber's hymn, affirming that Hindus were as much "seekers" as Christians. The catch is: Christians AREN'T Seekers; they already possess the Truth, Jesus Christ Who is the Way, the Truth, the Life....

In the U.N. debates on the Indian Rape of Goa, we see how world statemen and arbiters of western states, who should know better, bow down and worship at the altar of "Mahatma" Gandhi and his "Pacificism."

The sane man knows that when this happens, the world is in bad trouble.

Some Quotes By Or On "Mahatma" Gandhi:

"Mahatma Gandhi told Romain Rolland in Switzerland on his way back to India from the Round Table Conference of 1911 that Christianity is an echo of the Indian religion and Islam is the re-echo of that echo" - Arthur Lillie, India in Primitive Christianity

"No country but India and no religion but Hinduism could have given birth to a Gandhi" - London Times editorial on the day after his death, India and World Civilization, by D.P. Singhal, Pan Macmillan Ltd., 1993. p. 258

"Evangelisation in India appears to be part of uniform world policy to revive Christendom for re-establishing western supremacy and is not prompted by spiritual motives. The objective is apparently to create Christian minority pockets with a view to disrupt the solidarity of Non-Christian societies and the mass conversions of a considerable section of Adivasis with this ulterior motive is fraught with danger to the security of the state" - Dr. M. B. Niyogi, M.A., LL.M., LL.D. (Hon.), Kt.C.I.E., Chairman of the Christian Missionary Activities Enquiry Committee, Nagpur, Madhya Pradesh. The Christian Missionary Activities Enquiry Committee was appointed by a Resolution of the Government of Madhya Pradesh No. 318-716-V-Con., dated the 14th of April, 1954.

"Mahatma Gandhi called Christian missionaries, 'Vendors of Goods.' He said 'In Hindu households, the advent of a missionary has meant the disruption of the family coming in the wake of change of dress, manners, language, food and drink.' 'If I had power and could legislate, I should certainly stop all proselytizing.' 'I resent the overtures made to Harijans.' 'Stop all conversion, it is the deadliest poison that ever sapped the fountain of truth.' 'Poverty doesn't justify conversion.' He also considered missionaries as 'a clear libel on Indian humanity.'" (http://www.hinduwisdom.info/Conversion.htm)

"The Mundas are another tribe whom I met at Khunti on my way to Ranchi. The scope for work in their midst is inexhaustible. Christian missionaries have been doing valuable service for generations, but, in my humble opinion, their work suffers because at the end of it they expect conversion of these simple people to Christianity. I had the pleasure of seeing some of their schools in these places. It was all pleasing, but I could see the coming conflict between the missionaries and the Hindu workers. The latter have no difficulty in making their service commendable to the Hos, the Mundas and the others. How very nice it would be if the missionaries rendered humanitarian service without the ulterior aim of conversion" - Mahatma Gandhi (Wardha, December 17, 1925. Young India 8-10-1925. Vol. 28 p. 295-96)

"You, the missionaries come to India thinking that you come to a land of heathens, of idolators, of men who do not know God. One of the greatest of Christian divines, Bishop Heber, wrote the two lines which have always left a sting with me: ‘Where every prospect pleases, and man alone is vile.” I wish he had not written them. My own experience in my travels throughout India has been to the contrary. I have gone from one end of the country to the other, without any prejudice, in a relentless search after truth, and I am not able to say that here in this fair land, watered by the great Ganges, the Brahmaputra and the Jumna, man is vile. He is not vile. He is as much a seeker after truth as you and I are, possibly more so" - Mahatma Gandhi, Speech at a Meeting of Missionaries at the Y.M C.A. Calcutta, Vol. 27 p. 434-39, Young India, 6-8-1925, October 8, 1925 (Source: http://india.indymedia.org/en/2003/02/3105.shtml)

Mahatma Gandhi was asked: Do you definitely feel the presence of the living Christ within you? He answered: If it is the historical Jesus, surnamed Christ, that the inquirer refers to, I must say I do not. If it is an. adjective signifying one of the names of God, then I must say I do feel the presence of God - Call him Christ, call him Krishna, call him Rama. We have one thousand names to denote God, and if I did not feel the presence of God within me, I see so much of misery and disappointment every day that I would be a raving maniac and my destination would be the Hoogli" - Mahatma Gandhi, Speech at a Meeting of Missionaries at the Y.M C.A. Calcutta, Vol. 27 p. 434-39, Young India, 6-8-1925, October 8, 1925 (Source: http://india.indymedia.org/en/2003/02/3105.shtml)

"I resent the overtures made to Harijans" - Mahatma Gandhi

"Lots of people will come and tell you (Dalits) that your Hindu religion is all wrong, as you are not allowed to go to school or enter the temple. To such people you should say, 'We shall settle accounts with our Hindu brothers; you may not come between us as you may not intervene in quarrel between father and son or among relatives.' And you should remain steadfast to your religion.... Why should I give up my religion? Hinduism is meant for me and my soul...." - Mahatma Gandhi, The Collected Works of Mahatma Gandhi Volume 26, New Delhi, 1967 p. 8-9.

"You assume knowledge of all people which you can do only if you were God. I want you to understand that you are laboring under a double fallacy. That what you think best for you is really so; and that what you regard as the best for you is the best for the whole world. It is an assumption of omniscience and infallibility. I plead a little humility" - Mahatma Gandhi to an American missionary, Religion and Culture, S. Radhakrishnan, South Asia Books 1994 ISBN 8122200125 p. 64

"I am a Hindu because it is Hinduism which makes the world worth living" - Mahatma Gandhi, Young India 1-12-26

"Hindu Dharma is like a boundless ocean teeming with priceless gems. The deeper you dive the more treasures you find" - Mahatma Gandhi, The Essence of Hinduism, p. 205

"Hinduism has made marvelous discoveries in things of religion, of the spirit, of the soul.... Hinduism is a relentless pursuit of Truth. Truth is God and if today it has become moribund, inactive, irresponsive to growth, it is because we are fatigued; and as soon as the fatigue is over, Hinduism will burst upon the world with a brilliance perhaps unknown before" - Mahatma Gandhi, Young India, 24/11/1924 p. 390-396 & The Discovery of India, Jawaharlal Nehru, Oxford University Press. 1995. pg 75

"I have no other wish in this world but to find light and joy and peace through Hinduism" - Mahatma Gandhi in Foreword to Outlines of Hinduism, T.M.P. Mahadevan

"I am unable to identify with orthodox Christianity. I must tell you in all humility that Hinduism, as I know it, entirely satisfies my soul, fills my whole being, and I find solace in the Bhagavad Gita and the Upanishads that I miss even in the Sermon on the Mount.... I must confess to you that when doubts haunt me, when disappointments stare me in the face, and when I see not one ray of light on the horizon I turn to the Bhagavad Gita, and find a verse to comfort me; and I immediately begin to smile in the midst of overwhelming sorrow. My life has been full of external tragedies and if they have not left any visible and indelible effect on me, I owe it to the teachings of the Bhagavad Gita" - Mahatma Gandhi, defining his attitude to Christianity to Kali Charan Banerjee (1847-1902), a prominent convert from Hinduism to Anglicanism, Collected Works, Volume 27, New Delhi, 1968 p. 434-435 & India and World Civilization By D. P. Singhal Pan Macmillan Ltd, 1993, p. 258.

"The Geeta is the universal mother. I find a solace in the Bhagavad Gita that I miss even in the Sermon on the Mount. When disappointment stares me in the face and all alone I see not one ray of light, I go back to the Bhagavad Gita. I find a verse here and a verse there , and I immediately begin to smile in the midst of overwhelming tragedies - and my life has been full of external tragedies - and if they have left no visible or indelible scar on me, I owe it all to the teaching of the Bhagavad Gita. Today the Gita is not only my Bible or my Koran, it is more than that — it is my mother.... When I am in difficulty or distress I seek refuge in her bosom" - Mahatma Gandhi, Harijan 24-8-1934.

"Proselytizing under the cloak of humanitarian work is unhealthy, to say the least. It is most resented by people here" - Mahatma Gandhi, Young India, April 23, 1931.

"This proselytization will mean no peace in the world. Conversions are harmful to India. If I had the power and could legislate I should certainly stop all proselytizing.... It pains me to have to say that the Christian missionaries as a body, with honorable exceptions, have actively supported a system which has impoverished, enervated and demoralized a people considered to be among the gentlest and most civilized on earth...." - Mahatma Gandhi, The Collected Works of Mahatma Gandhi Volume 24, p. 476.

"I am a proud staunch Sanatani Hindu" - Mahatma Gandhi

"Aye, there lies the rub. Unfortunately, Christianity in India has been inextricably mixed up for the last one hundred and fifty years with materialistic civilization and imperialistic exploitation by the stronger white races of the world. Its contribution to India has been therefore largely of a negative character" - Mahatma Gandhi, Christian missions in the eyes of Gandhiji, Jagarana Prakashana p. 5.

"In the matter of religion I must restrict myself to my ancestral religion; that is, the use of my immediate surroundings in religion. If I find my religion defective, I should serve it by purifying it of defects.... It is no part of your call, I assure you, to tear up the lives of the people of the East by the roots" - Mahatma Gandhi, Mahatma Gandhi, His Life and Ideas, C. F. Andrews, p. 96.

"How can the conversion achieved through such unethical means be called religious in its true sense?" - Mahatma Gandhi

"Don’t attempt to propagate your faith; just live it" - Mahatma Gandhi to his Protestant missionary friend, E. Stanley Jones

"It was impossible for me to believe that I could go to heaven or attain salvation only by becoming a Christian" - Mahatma Gandhi, My Experiments with Truth

"If instead of confining themselves purely to humanitarian work such as education, medical services to the poor and the like, they would use these activities of theirs for the purpose of proselytizing, I would certainly like them to withdraw. Every nation considers its own faith to be as good as that of any other. Certainly the great faiths held by the people of India are adequate for her people. India stands in no need of conversion from one faith to another" - Mahatma Gandhi, Foreign Missionaries, Young India, April 23, 1931.

"My fear is that, though Christian friends nowadays do not say or admit it that Hindu religion is untrue, they must harbour in their breast that Hinduism is an error and that Christianity, as they believe it, is the only true religion. So far, as one can understand the present (Christian) effort, it is to uproot Hinduism from her very foundation and replace it by another faith.... The first distinction I would like to make... between your missionary work and mine is that while I am strengthening the (Hindu) faith of the people, you (missionaries) are undermining it" - Mahatma Gandhi, Young India, March 1927 & Harijan, March 13, 1937.

"Yes, I do maintain that India's great faiths are all-sufficing for her" - Mahatma Gandhi, Collected works of Mahatma Gandhi, 1969, Vol. 46, p. 28-29.

"God is not so helpless in winning souls all by himself as to need anybody's help" - Mahatma Gandhi

"I believe that there is no such thing as conversion from one faith to another in the accepted sense of the word. It is a highly personal matter for the individual and his God. I may not have any design upon my neighbor as to his faith which I must honor even as I honor my own. Having reverently studied the scriptures of the world I could no more think of asking a Christian or a Musalman, or a Parsi or a Jew to change his faith than I would think of changing my own" - Mahatma Gandhi, Harijan, September 9, 1935.

"I came to the conclusion long ago... that all religions were true and also that all had some error in them, and that whilst I hold by my own, I should hold others as dear as Hinduism. So we can only pray, if we are Hindus, not that a Christian should become a Hindu.... But our innermost prayer should be that a Hindu should be a better Hindu, a Muslim a better Muslim, a Christian a better Christian" - Mahatma Gandhi, Young India, January 19, 1928

"Why should a Christian want to convert a Hindu to Christianity? Why should he not be satisfied if the Hindu is a good or godly man?" - Mahatma Gandhi, Harijan: January 30, 1937.

"I am not interested in weaning you from Christianity and making you Hindu, and I do not relish your designs upon me, if you had any, to convert me to Christianity. I would also dispute your claim that Christianity is the only true religion" - Mahatma Gandhi, Harijan, June 3, 1937.

"Conversion nowadays has become a matter of business like any other.... India is in no need of conversion of the kind .... Conversion in the sense of self-purification, self-realization, is the crying need of the times. That however is never what is meant by proselytizing. To those who would convert India, might it not be said: 'Physician heal thyself?'" - Mahatma Gandhi, Young India: April 23, 1931

"I hold that proselytizing under the cloak of humanitarian work is unhealthy to say the least. It is most resented by people here. Religion after all is a deeply personal thing. It touches the heart. Why should I change my religion because a doctor who professes Christianity as his religion has cured me of some disease, or why should the doctor expect such a change whilst I am under his influence?" - Mahatma Gandhi, Young India, April 23, 1931.

"Christianity in India has been inextricably mixed up for the last one hundred and fifty years with British rule. It appears to us as synonymous with materialistic civilization and imperialistic exploitation by the stronger white races of the weaker races of the world. Its contribution to India has been therefore, largely negative" - Mahatma Gandhi, Young India, March 21, 1929.

"The tendency of Indian (i.e. Hindu) civilization is to elevate the moral being, that of the western (i.e. Christian) civilization is to propagate immorality. The latter is godless, the former is based on a belief in God" - Mahatma Gandhi, Popular Hinduism: The Religion of the Masses - By L.S.S. O'Malley p. 46

"I believe that the civilization India has evolved is not to be beaten in the world. Nothing can equal the seeds sown by our ancestry. Rome went; Greece shared the same fate; the might of the Pharaohs was broken; Japan has become westernized; of China nothing can be said; but India is still, somehow or other, sound at the foundation" - Mahatma Gandhi, Hindu Swaraj or Indian Home Rule Chapter xiii

"Hinduism is a living organism liable to growth and decay subject to the laws of Nature. One and indivisible at the root, it has grown into a vast tree with innumerable branches. The changes in the season affect it. It has its autumn and its summer, its winter and its spring. It is, and is not, based on scriptures. It does not derive its authority from one book. Non violence has found the highest expression and application in Hinduism" - Mahatma Gandhi, Hindu Dharma, Chapter "Why I am a Hindu," p. 1-8.

"I think I have understood Hinduism correctly when I say that it is eternal, all-embracing and flexible enough to suit all situations" - Mahatma Gandhi, Navjeevan 27-9-1924.

"Hinduism contains the essence of all religions. What it does not contain is not worth knowing - Mahatma Gandhi, Navjeevan 17-9-1925.

"Since Hinduism is based on truth and nonviolence, it can never oppose any other religion. Hinduism strives for the betterment of all religions, and through them of the entire world" - Mahatma Gandhi, from a speech made on 25-3-29 while inaugurating the Laxminarayan Temple

"I bow my head in reverence to our ancestors for their sense of the beautiful in nature and for their foresight in investing beautiful manifestations of Nature with a religious significance" - Mahatma Gandhi, Glimpses of Indian Culture, Dr. Giriraj Shah, p. 106

"India is to me the dearest country in the world, because I have discovered goodness in it. It has been subject to foreign rule, it is true. But the status of a slave is preferable to that of a slave holder" - Mahatma Gandhi

"Hinduism is a living organism. One and indivisible at the root, it has grown into a vast tree with innumerable branches. Knowledge is limitless and so also the application of truth. Everyday we add to our knowledge of the power of Atman (soul) and we shall keep on doing so" - Mahatma Gandhi

"As philosophically there was nothing extraordinary in Christian principles, no one, much less a Hindu, would ever give it a second look" - Mahatma Gandhi, in My Autobiography or the Story of My Experiments with Truth, quoted by Brahm Datt Bharti in Christian Conversions & Abuse of Religious Freedom in India, p. 20

"If all the Upanishads and all the other scriptures happened all of a sudden to be reduced to ashes, and if only the first verse in the Ishopanishad were left in the memory of the Hindus, Hinduism would live for ever" - Mahatma Gandhi, The Upanishads Translated for the Modern Reader By Eknath Easwaran, Nilgiri Press, 1987, pg 205

"I accord the highest honor to the Hindu scriptures - the Vedas, the Upanishads, the Puranas, the Gita, the Mahabharata, the Ramayan, the Bhagavata. I defend the 'much-maligned Brahman' and entertains 'not a shadow of doubt' that 'if Brahmanism does not revive, Hinduism will perish.' I uphold the 'spirit behind idol-worship' and is prepared 'to defend with my life the thousands of holy temples which sanctify this land.' For me cow protection 'is the dearest possession of the Hindu heart' and 'no one who does not believe in cow-protection can possibly be a Hindu.' The sacred thread has 'deep meaning for him' as it is 'the sign of the second birth, that is spiritual.' I say that varnashrama is 'inherent in human nature, and Hinduism has simply made a science of it'" - Mahatma Gandhi, Hindu Dharma, p. 7-374

"What the divine author of the Mahabharata said of his great creation is equally true of Hinduism. Whatever of substance is contained in any other religion is always to be found in Hinduism, and what is not contained in it is insubstantial or unnecessary" - Mahatma Gandhi, Young India 27-9-1925

"Hinduism insists on the brotherhood of not only all mankind but of all that lives" - Mahatma Gandhi, Harijan 28-3-1936.

"Hinduism is like the Ganga, pure and unsullied at its source but taking in its course the impurities in the way. Even like the Ganga it is beneficent in its total effect. It takes a provincial form in every province, but the inner substance is retained everywhere" - Mahatma Gandhi, Young India 8-4-1926

"On examination, I have found it (Hinduism) to be the most tolerant of all religions known to me. Its freedom from dogma makes a forcible appeal to me inasmuch as it gives the votary the largest scope for self-expression" - Mahatma Gandhi, The Collected Works of Mahatma Gandhi Volume 34 New Delhi 1970 p. 112- 261

"Cow-protection is an article of faith in Hinduism. Apart from its religious sanctity, it is an ennobling creed. Cow protection is the dearest possession of the Hindu heart. It is the one concrete belief common to all Hindus. No on who does not believe in cow-protection can possibly be called a Hindu. It is a noble belief. I endorse every word of what Prof. Vaswani has said in praise of the cow. For me the cow is the personification of innocence. Cow protection means that protection of the weak and helpless" - Mahatma Gandhi, Hindu Dharma, p. 108-18

"I disbelieve in the conversion of one person by another. My effort should never to be to undermine another’s faith. This implies belief in the truth of all religions and, therefore, respect for them. It implies true humility" - Mahatma Gandhi, Young India, April 23, 1931

"As I wander about throughout the length and breadth of India, I see many Christian Indians almost ashamed of their birth, certainly of their ancestral religion, and of their ancestral dress. The aping of Europeans on part of Anglo-Indians is bad enough, but the aping of them by Indian converts is a violence done to their country and, shall I say, even to their new religion" - Mahatma Gandhi, Young India, August 8, 1925

"I regard Jesus as a great teacher of humanity, but I do not regard him as the only begotten son of God. That epithet in its material interpretation is quite unacceptable. Metaphorically we are all sons of God, but for each of us there may be different sons of God in a special sense. Thus for me Chaitanya may be the only begotten son of God.... I cannot ascribe exclusive divinity to Jesus" - Mahatma Gandhi, Harijan, June 3, 1937

"I consider western Christianity in its practical working a negation of Christ’s Christianity. I cannot conceive Jesus, if he was living in flesh in our midst, approving of modern Christian organizations, public worship, or ministry" - Mahatma Gandhi, Young India, September 22, 1921

"When the missionary of another religion goes to them, he goes like a vendor of goods. He has no special spiritual merit that will distinguish him from those to whom he goes. He does however possess material goods, which he promises to those who will come to his fold" - Mahatma Gandhi, Harijan, April 3, 1937

"Only the other day a missionary descended on a famine area with money in his pocket, distributed it among the famine stricken, converted them to his fold, took charge of their temple and demolished it. This is outrageous" - Mahatma Gandhi, Harijan, November 5, 1937.
