Happy Diwali ( Lakshmi Puja ) to Hindu brethren!
दीपक का प्रकाश हर पल आपके जीवन में
नई रोशनी लाए,बस यही शुभकामना है आपके लिए इस दीपावली में।
We Buddhists & Hindus are Dharmic people of the same Motherland – Jambudweep or Bharatvarsha!
Our aspirations, concerns, adversaries and challenges are the same & hence we need to be united as one single force.
Happy Diwali, again
To avoid accusations of Islamophobia, and to deny Hindu supremacists any political fodder, academicians often downplay the breaking of Hindu temples by Muslim warlords.
Many go to the extent of saying it is vastly exaggerated, or that the actions were political and not religious, therefore understandable, or downplay it by juxtaposing the violence of Hindu kings against temples of rival Hindu kings.
This approach has resulted in historians losing the respect of the average Indian, who are increasingly swinging to the other extreme: blindly accepting polemic political narratives of nationalist writers.
