The Wonders of Rgveda

No matter what religion a person of Indian descent follows, it is only the Vedas that lend him the sense of racial dignity and human probity by presenting him the true picture of a past, which excels any national history in greatness, grandeur and glory.

The study of the above articles ought to demonstrate conclusively that civilisation started in India and was carried abroad by her proud Ksatriya sons, who roamed the world in search of adventure, and fought with an incredible tenacity without resorting to dishonourable conduct. This is the true Vedic spirit - fighting for glory and serving the human cause.

In fact, this is the Vedic way of life; it is based on a simple tenet: "you reap what you sow." Therefore, one cannot harvest glory through inglorious acts. The failure to keep up with this Vedic ideal has turned Hindus into "dhotiwalas" who adore cowardice (ahimsa) and deplore the principle of death with honour.

This evasion of the Vedic doctrine has affected even more adversely those Indians, who call themselves "Muslims." They have fallen in love with the Principle of Inaction, and seek paradise through Intercession. The result is dreadful; these people see nothing good in the drops of the Ganges, and look for everything vlrtuous in the sands of Arabia!

The salvation of India lies in following the Vedic way of life, which is far above religious bigotry. It is high time that Indians of all shades realised this fact to unify as one nation. 

Anwar Shaikh presents his work with a view to establishing that civilisation started in India, and was spread to the other parts of the world, especially Europe, by her adventure-seeking sons known as Kshatriya. The Vedic way of life is based on active righteousness: a devotee of the Vedas is an advocate of virtue; the sword, which he wields to protect humanity, is his true ornament. In the Vedic language, dagger and dignity are reciprocal, and one cannot survive without the other. The Hindus have flouted this principle through their addiction to ahimsa, the convenient word for concealing their disloyalty to what they apparently hold the most sacred, supreme and super.

However, it is something that the Hindus have still some sense of belonging to India, but their brethren who have embraced Islam, are so stricken with a sense of inferiority that they seek relief in considering themselves as the children of foreign invaders and look for everything good in the sands of Arabia.
