From Francois Gautier / Update On FACT
Dear friends,

This is an update on FACT.
After the successful Kashmiri Pandits� exhibition, which at the moment has been translated in Mahratti and is being shown in villages of Maharashtra, another exhibition/symposium on the persecution of Hindus, Christians and Buddhists in Bangladesh was inaugurated in Mumbai on 18th November 2006 by His Holiness Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, in the presence of many terrorist experts, such KPS Gill, B. Raman, Brahma Chellaney and delegates from Bangladesh invited by FACT.�
A path-breaking painting exhibition on �Aurangzeb as he was according to Moghol records� was shown in Delhi�s Habitat Centre in February this year, in G gallery Bangalore in April and is now slated to be exhibited in Pune in August and then Mumbai. A film on the condition of Brahmans and Other Upper Castes has been made (it is posted on U Tube: www.youtube.com/watch?v=P7Xgc4ljHKM) and it will be followed by an exhibition and a book. We have also initiated a show Shivaji which will be completed at the end of the year, (see attached). FACT has embarked as well on a project to do two exhibitions: one on the 1947 Holocaust of Hindus and Sikhs and the second on the rise of Sikhism as a defender of the Hindu Dharma. FACT plans to bring out audio CD�s on all these subjects to educate people. We have already brought one on the Kashmiri Pandits� issue, another one on the victims of the Bombay train blasts and of course, a third one on Brahmins and OUC.�
But overall FACT has an ultimate goal: To build an Indian Holocaust museum. India has terribly suffered in the last fifteen centuries at the hands of invaders, be they Muslims, Christians, or even Chinese recently. No nation can move forward, unless it faces squarely its past. As His Holiness Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, the founder of the Art of Living Foundation, pointed out recently, � the courage to remember, helps us not to repeat the same mistakes and to build a better future for our children �. Hence, FACT would like to build an Indian museum where all the atrocities committed against Hindus, Buddhists, Muslims and Christians, will be depicted, but also where all the greatness of India, past, present and future will be projected. We have been donated a small piece of land in Pune near the airport and this is where we plan the museum.�
For all this noble endeavours, we solicit your help and support. FACT India is a registered Trust with tax exemption. If your donation is in Indian rupees, you can make a cheque in the name of FACT and mail it to Fran�ois Gautier, Auromodel, Auroville, Tamil Nadu, (via Pondichery) 605101, India.

NOTE: Francois events across US is at:
1) According to Will Durant, the Islamic Conquest of India is the most bloodiest in the history of human kind. 80 Million Hindus and Buddhists were subjected to murder, rape and taken to slavery. Hindu Khush, slaughter of Hindus derives its name from many thousands who were killed when taken for slavery. Thousands of temples were destroyed but no mention of it is found in school/college history textbooks.

2) Partition of India saw the bloodiest migration of people where millions of people were displaced and killed in most brutal way. 350,000 Hindus were driven away from Kashmir and many are living in squalid camps for 18 years and Indian rulers and media go about as if they do not even exist.

3) In last 4 years the number of terror deaths and terror incidents in India is only next to war torn Iraq. Not one single terrorist was caught until early this year because the Govt do not want to affect vote bank politics. 5 minutes before 50 people were blown into smithereens, the terrorist send a email to all media that Hindus blood is cheapest of mankind. At the end of the Mumbai attack, the handlers in Pakistan warned Mumbai attack is just a sample and the real drama is yet to come. (Do not miss: http://www.hinduhumanrightswatch.org/image...resentation.pdf ). History is repeating itself.

4) India's first education minister Maulana Azad deliberately distorted history showing Mughal period was benevolent hiding its bloody history including brutal Aurangzeb rule. This gross distortion resulted in disowning our own history, our own heroes and consider brutal foreign rule such as that of Mughals as benevalent to country. Our text books picture today picture freedom fighters such as Bhagat Singh as terrorist and Subash Chandra Bose in a negative way. This is continuing with no serious oppostion from Indians.

5) Many Indians are not aware Mahatma Gandhi is vehemently opposed to missionaries conversion activities. He called it a deadliest poison that ever sapped the fountain of truth. But many Indians today parrot the propaganda of missionaries that they are helping the downtrodden in India without realizing that Mahatma Gandhi stood all his life for downtrodden but saw through missionaries their agenda of denationalizing the country and tearing it apart. Today in Andhra Pradesh, according Govt own declarations 21% of the people are converted and there is no serious opposition in the country. Not knowing history, Indians, particularly Hindus are supporting these activities. North Eastern part of India is about 90% converted and want to separate from India.

"No nation can move forward, unless it squarely faces its past. The courage to remember helps us not to repeat the same mistakes and to build a better future for our children" - H.H. Sri Sri Ravi Shankar


Hindu Civilization has deep and arguably the longest continuous history of existence. But its children know very little about her past. During Islamic period the civilizations North, North-west, central, eastern and eventually even its southern reaches were devastated. During that traumatic period Hindus suffered incalculable damage and trauma. When Hindus internal struggle against this foreign tormentor were about to succeed the country faced another foreign threat and was colonized by the European colonizers.

The European colonizers changed the medium of our literary language and alienated us from our internal narration, our own story and in turn with our world view. In the process they usurped from us the right to narrate our own story and our world view. They became the experts on our story and we became the receivers of that fable. In the process we looked at them as the experts of our history. They mutilated and created for us a story that was entirely alien to us. Their motivation was to serve their ends of colonization and create internal conflicts among us. A divided home could never muster enough strength so as to stand on its own.

After independence our native leadership, educated in the western schools of the then prevalent European thought, took over the reigns of our country. Most of this leadership had no education and understanding of our past and civilization. They could only understand it through the language of our colonizers. They continued to impose the colonial education system, colonial legal system and the colonial world view on us. They had believed all that colonizer had written, and they ruled us with those colored glasses. Hindu never got to tell his own story as to what happened to them; and never got to communicate Hindu world view. Our voices have been trapped well within us by our own.

Civilizations step in to future with the strength of the present, and the confidence rooted in its past. If that confidence is lost, the inheritors of that civilization will feel defensive and will not want to own that past. Then the inheritors of civilization will continue to seek approval from outside. That creates a second class citizenry, which mocks and shuns its past. Thus to know our past honestly and truthfully is not only our right but an urgent requirement for our success, and our equal participation in the communities of civilizations. The truth will set us free and we will soar new heights of achievement, without wanting to look for approvals from those who colonized us.

Current Hindu History is concocted and manufactured within India , by the left elite who rule the corridors of power. They have this strange notion that real history will offend those of us who for historical reasons aligned themselves and adopted the ethos of the invaders. They think that they can create the new edifice of modern and free India on the foundations of concoctions and lies. Even though the ruins and remains of that past, they want to lie about, is for every one to see around the nation and passed through folk stories. New edifices can not be erected on the foundations of concoctions and lies. Hence it becomes imperative for those of us, who care about India ’s civilization, that they strive to bring forth their story in their own narration.
btw if u r in and around Houston, he is delivering a lecture today at Arya Samaj of Greater Houston at 7 PM.
