Islamic Invasion Destroyed Temples by Rajiv Malhotra at JNU


Good evening Sir. My name is Alok Shukla and
I am an Engineering Graduate from Delhi University. Sir, few days back I had a discussion on Islamic
invasion on Hindu temples. And desecration of them. So, what he said was, it was nothing
but a continuation of Shavites and Vashnavites fights inbetween them. And they also used
to destroy and desecrate each others temples. And he cited some archaeological… Ok, I
understand this issue very well. Its a very common left wing critic that you cannot blame
Muslims for doing for what you were always doing. Now there are many logical flaws in
this. I mean you dont say this rape is ok because somebody else had also raped somebody.
One bad thing does not justify the other. Whether Shavites & Vashnavites did it or not
is completely irrelevant to the fact that Muslims came and invaded and destroyed temples.
They have to be accountable for their crime even if somebody else has to be accountable
for their crime. Secondly, there is a difference between an internal clash and an outsider
coming. If there is a family clash, its one thing. And an outsider coming and doing expansion
in which we lose, all of us lose where as if its an internal clash, may be person X
beats person Y, they are neighbours, then next generation Y beats X, they are neighbours.
Over a period of time the value of the market share, the total capital remains in the country
about the same. It may get redistributed one way then redistributed back another way. So
may be the power goes to Shavites, the power goes to Vashnavites, but its stays within
the land. It doesnt get siphoned in thousands of camels being taken loot away into the middle
east. It doesnt happen that way. But when a foreign geographical expansion from one
continent to another, it is a completely different thing. Not only in the devastation of the
material side of the wealth. But also ideologically, a whole new framework, a whole new paradigm
that originated somewhere else gets imposed on you. A whole new language gets imposed on you. And culture gets imposed on you. So, the foreign invasion is of very different kind than local
kings fighting each other. Thats the second point. The third point is, that this business
is exaggerated. This business of Shavites & Vashnavites, they did not have multi-generational
huge armies of 20,000 – 50,000 horsemen going in a big army to invade. It was little small
scale, some guy fought another guy. The way people fight anywhere. It was not something
that somebody can say that there was Shavite kingdom invading and expanding a Shavite dynasty
for many generations on an expansion rampage, the way we have suffered from middle east
people coming. So, the scale of this, the duration of this and the intensity of this
within India was nowhere compared to what we saw from foreign invaders. Your Q is, did
a Shavite ever take over a Vashnavite temple. Of course, they were instances when they did
that. But, it was not on the same scale. And it was basically local rivalry. But, it is
different than, if it is sanctioned in your theology, its sanctioned in your book. It
is not sanctioned in the Vashnavite book that you have to go and do this to the others.
So, one guy of his own did it, then may be 20 years later it was forgotten. It didnt
sort of continue and expand over thousands of miles and hundreds of years, the way the foreign invasions did. So, thats the big difference I think.

  1. Can anyone show the "archaeological evidence" of shaivites destroying vaishnavites' temples and vice versa ? It will be helpful to know.

  2. He is wrong because, Hindu's desecration of each others temples hardly gets any traction. In broad public imagination, everyone has been fed the lie that only muslims destroyed 'our' temples.

  3. So essentially it doesn't matter what religion, region or what territory one belongs to, humans just love to fight
    Well history certainly is enlightening…..

  4. befitting answer sir.. I learnt that the left thoughts r trained in JNU through debate & finally they r sent to join NDTV as journalist & become lul Burka dutt..lol

  5. KUDOS RAJIV SIR!!!! HARAMI LEFTIST CHUTIYAS NEED TO BE SENT TO ISIS CAMPS TO MAKE THEM UNDERSTAND HOW SECULAR MUSLIM RULERS WERE.

  6. we the hindus, jains, Buddhists and sikhs need to stand united for our great and beloved nation BHAARAT to exist , otherwise the future seems so dark .
    And yeah, the main point was that which Mr, Rajiv ji sais in the end , even if a king of some hindu sect took over other sect's temple , it was not something which was religiously sanctionsed.
    jai BHAARAT

  7. Hinduism has never been a one-size-fits-all set of beliefs. It is a highly individualistic belief system, where anything goes…

    A Namboodri who is a strict vegetarian and gets polluted by shadows, is a Hindu…
    An Aghori who eats human flesh is also a Hindu…
    A Kali bhakt who sacrifices animals is also a Hindu…
    A Bishnoi who feeds even deer which harm his crops is also a Hindu…
    A Manipuri Meitei who considers fish as vegetarian food is also a Hindu…
    A Kashmiri pandit who eats beef, is also a Hindu…
    A Baul who believes in tantric sex to reach God, is also a Hindu…
    A Hanuman bhakt who practices brahmcharya, is also a Hindu…
    A dalit is also a Hindu…
    A Kashi panda who considers mlechha's touch as impure, is also a Hindu…
    A follower of Charvaka who believes in materialism is also a Hindu…
    An ascetic who believes in renunciation is also a Hindu…
    An idol worshipper is also a Hindu…
    A Nastika who denies the existence of God is also a Hindu…
    A Shiva bhakt who drinks liquor as prasad is also a Hindu…
    A cow devotee who drinks its urine is also a Hindu…

    Hindusim is not an Abrahamic religion of the ‘book’ as it does not have a codified set of rules/instructions. The problem starts when we start to define Hinduism in the very narrow confines of ‘Manu Smriti’ and force this regressive ‘Hindutva’ version on others. RSS attempts to do so and this creates the conflict we see around us today…

  8. What a biggest learned and educated liar this old man is. When did muslims looted and went away on Camels? They invaded, conquered, converted and ruled on this soil and with due respect to all.

  9. Amazing, I have never seen any Hindu's destroying there own temples, Bull Crap. Islam is known to not being able to live with anyone else, its in the Sunna of Muhammed, read the Quran the Sira and Hadith. Start with Chapter 9, you can see how disgusting some of the Sura's like, 9:29 of the Quran. Islam is Diablical in its very nature.

    Quran 9:29
    SAHIH INTERNATIONAL
    Fight those who do not believe in Allah or in the Last Day and who do not consider unlawful what Allah and His Messenger have made unlawful and who do not adopt the religion of truth from those who were given the Scripture – [fight] until they give the jizyah willingly while they are humbled.

    Quran 9:30
    SAHIH INTERNATIONAL
    The Jews say, "Ezra is the son of Allah "; and the Christians say, "The Messiah is the son of Allah ." That is their statement from their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved [before them]. May Allah destroy them; how are they deluded?

    EC recommends disqualification of 20 AAP MLA's, Home Ministry recommends, President signs the order only to the thrown out by Delhi HC. Nobody bats an eyelid. Shameless EC, Home Ministry, President continue as usual.
    And many more such things are happening every day.

    But the media tell us, all is well, country is doing just fine and that we are being led by an able leadership, GDP is growing, business is doing well.

    And there is no alternative to Modi.

    This is the new normal.

  11. Pushyamitra sunga destroyed Asoka's 84000 BUDHHA STUPA after assassinate of ashoka ' s grandson Bruhadatt

  12. This gaandu rajiv malhotra(mala muthra) sucked American dick for 45years now he has come to suck RSS dick, this motherfucker is not even Indian citizen he says that he has come to save India
    No he wants to destroy India his complete family is well setteled in us bastard get out of my country

  13. IT'S A BLATANT UTTER LIE THAT SHAVAITES & VISNUVITES DESTROYED TEMPLES. LEFTISTS ARE TRAITORS & CORRUPTED BY FOREIGN DEVILS TO SPREAD LIES TO DESTROY GREAT BHARATH. IF INDIANS DO NOT UNITE & DESTROY TRAITORS, HISTORY OF INDIA WILL REPEAT. FOREIGN DEVILS ARE ENVIOUS OF INDIA ARE TRYING VERY HARD TO DESTROY INDIA.

  14. A must read novel regarding this topic (abt Islamic invasions with documented actual evidence) is "Aavarana"……written by a well known Kannada author SL Bhyrappa. Translations are available in several languages like Hindi,English,Marathi,Telegu etc.

  15. Donkeys are barking without knowing the atrocities of their own sect, calling other sects to unite

  16. After all this devastation by islamic hooligans and later by their christian counterparts over centuries, we fools haven't still learnt much. We still want conversions, inter religious marriages, all in the name of that prostituted word 'secularism'.

  17. I have yet to find a temple which was desecrated by Shaivites/Vaishnavites. Sure… sects could and may have competed and under a King's patronage newer temples would have been Shaivite or Vaishnavite etc. but I dont think that already existing temples were desecrated. That is a strong claim requiring strong evidence of an existing temple being converted.

  18. toh humlog kya abhi kam dhanda chhorke har jagah pe mandir banaye?? paisa kon dega?? Rajiv Malhotra??

  19. It is false and fabricated story which is created by the muslim that inter communal destruction of temples within and amongst Hindus. Need to stop such propaganda this is called Islamic propaganda. .We should be aware this.

  20. YOU IDIOT RAJIV MALHOTRA, MUSLIMS LATTER ON BECAME THE PART OF INDIA AND NO WHERE THE MUSLIMS DESTROYED THE TEMPLES OTHERWISE THE TEMPLES OF KHUJRAHO WILL NOT BE LEFT AS IN KHUJRAHO TEMPLES WE SEE NUDITY AND IN ISLAM NUDITY IS NOT ALLOWED

  21. It is not true that Shaiva or Vaishnavas demolished each others temples. Please go to Badami in Karnataka. Vaishnav king built beautiful Shiv Mandirs in 4th century.

  22. Shaivs Vaishnavs fighting each other?? Majority temples were common.

    In Himachal many temples are even Shaivo Buddhist. Single inner sanctum.

  23. There are hundreds of chronicles written by Muslim historians proudly talking about the destruction of Hindu temples and the capture of Hindu women.

  24. Rajiv's own point about how someone has to be accounted for their crime even if someone else has to be accounted for their crime can be said for how dalits / untouchables have been treated by the Hindu caste system. Usually when this brought up he talks about how the west has done slavery, etc and deflects. He is a hypocrite.

  25. Dear God. There is a Siva linga in Rameswaram, Tamil Nadu which is believed to have been built by Lord Ram. How can Vaishnavaites destroy Shavaites temples and viceversa?
    Moreover the sacred thread (Janeu) has three strands, each stands for Brahma, Vishnu and Siva (the tree basic elements that sustain creation). Vedic religion has always stood for coexistence.

  26. Hindus also destroyed Buddist and Gaint temples and massacred lot of Lowe cast people why do not this racist professor never talks about it

  27. The pity is that our saints like Paramhamsa Yogananda, Shirdi Sai Baba, Sri Sathya Sai Baba etc had followers of various major Faiths as their devotees without having them change their Faith, saying like ''all roads lead to Rome" and even had chants including the praise of other Faiths like "Iswar Allah thero Naam", Swami Yogananda actually composed Xian chants, while Shirdi Sai is reported to say often "Allah Malik" even as he asked people to recite Vishnu Sahasra Naam etc as well. But the same sentiment of "sabka Malik Ek" in different form is not shared by the major western Religions which insult Hindu traditions. More pity is that our brothers who got converted to alien Faiths are more fanatic about their belief system, while even western scholars come to our country seeking the spiritual treasures! Rajeevji's toil to 'save' the ancient tradition of the Hindus against malicious anti propaganda by bigot groups is powerful and heart rending!

  28. No it is leftist's other theory to divide hindus into shavite and vashnavite , how is it possible, it is Hinduism not any Islamic religion , here loving Rama does not mean hating Shiva and vice versa, these leftist are very cunning people , instead of exposing Islamic invasion's brutality and destruction , they are creating differences within Hinduism by giving such false over exaggerated theories , see first they have created differences between Hinduism , Buddhism, and Sikhism

  29. present education of students come from out side. not pertaining to academics, but out side it. specially regarding their own religion to be questioned by people with vested interest through these conduits, to be presented to the public to establish their point of view. thus put down their own faith and establish outside faith more moral and correct. now we have muffs studding in schools and specially collages, where half of them fall for it. where as the brightest never fall for it, as they question any one, to its core and never fall pray to such agents, employed by outsiders. it is the mediocre guys who are an easy pray. agents have spread their tentacles to a large net work to operate and de stabilize our system since long, as we have been under British rule, switched over to family rule for past 70 years. they were not so educated to identify these possible pore's present in our country which has now become sore, badly infected, to be cured. some even irreversibly damaged.

  30. Quran is not a revelation, it is a cheating religion…full of dogmas and fear of hitting hell eternally ….Quran is actually a thought process of some followers of Mohammed who wanted to control the population just like the politicians do today….there is no philosophy, no rationale just plain orders ….and if you fail to obey Quran you are going to hell….what is this ?
    Sanatan Dharma on the other hand is full of questions and answers…pick up any scriptures they are full of questions and answers…be it Upanishads, aranyaks, samhitas, Srimad Bhagavad Gita, Srimad Bhagvatam…these scriptures are full of questions and answers a seeker would like to ask….this path of Sanatan Dharma is not meant for some dull headed fanatics who don't understand simple Logic…what to speak of 6 systems of philosophy….

    Although choice is ours what do we want to achieve…a very glamourised version of today's available luxuries or something even beyond that…if the the choice is former then go and blindly do namaz and develop hate for those not doing it….or try to develop a seeker attitude and learn from Sanatan Dharma which will take you even beyond Heaven….

  32. yes we can see how peaceful muslims are the churches temples in arab countries the religious buildings they left alone in muslim majority countries pmsl they openly doing it to this day destroying millenia oldstatues temples etc and silly hindus believe their lies hara hara mahadev

  33. Muslims had and have the habit of blowing other Muslims sects' mosques! One does not have to go back to history. One can see this in contemporary times in the Islamic countries! Shivite vs Vishnavite squabbles were more philosophical in nature as the Dvaita/Advaita divide and there may have been minor altercations at principality level and land lord levels. It had minor outcomes and those squabbles were local and limited. There were such squabbles with Buddhism and Jainism too! Comparing it with orchestrated and vast decimation of a religion and its temples, lasting a thousand or more years is incomparable!!
