Statement of Dr. Subramanian Swamy, Janata Party President made on July 8, 2008
The recent announcement that the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Mr.
Karunanidhi will patronise screening of the mega budget movie on Saint
Thomas and his fictitious missionary activities in the sixteenth century in
Tamil Nadu, read with the Union Government's decision to cancel the
allotment of forest land to the Amarnath Shrine Board intended for creating
facilities for housing and parking Hindu tirth yatris, are a part of the
pernicious and sinister attempt to put the Hindus under siege, about which I
have been warning the nation for the last three years [see my book: Hindus
Under Siege: The Way Out].
Around the mid sixteenth century, two anti-Hindu brutalities
were committed by foreigners. The first was the demolition of the Sri Rama
Janmabhoomi temple in Ayodhya by an agent of the invading plundering Babar
and the second was the destruction of the hoary Shiva temple by the invading
Portugese barbarians. The Hindu society was not prepared for these
uncivilised hordes, and hence remained mute witness to the destruction and
But no more. The Hindu has now stood up. Hence there is now a
Ramjanmabhoomi movement in the country with a determination to re-build the
temple.. The Karunanidhi-Sonia duo to demolish the Rama Setu by implementing
the Sethusamudram Ship Channel Project was challenged, and despite the duo
being in power in Chennai and Delhi, the duo were unable to marshall
arguments in the Supreme Court. The Hindus carried the day and the project
has gone back to the drawing board.
I therefore on behalf of Hindus and those others who proudly
acknowledge that their ancestors are Hindus, warn this duo to desist from
trying to patronise the falsification of history about the presence in Tamil
Nadu of Saint Thomas, to legitimise the Portugese .destruction of the Shiva
Temple to build the Santhome Church. The Church will have to go, and the
Kapaleeshwara Temple re-built on that site. Hindus will do it with the help
of sane and civilised Christians if possible, without them if necessary, and
despite them if forced. When 83 percent Hindus unite, let those who are
seeking to debase Hindu icons by bogus history realise that a religious
Tsunami will wash them away.
