What is Ideology?
Ideology is a “Political Guide Book” or “Road Map.” Ideology gives a sense of our: History; Past Greatness; Great Civilization of Ancient Harappan India; Informs us of the Philosophy and Wisdom of the Great God given Vedas; Accomplishments in making India the richest country in the world from the 13th century to the 18th century; Place in History, when India was the “Factory and Learning Center” of the world; Why our “People and Civilization Declined;” Why we must Re-Build, our Civilization, instead of joining other Putrid Religions or Civilizations; Great Abilities to achieve through “Hard Work” and “Overcome any Challenges;” Kalapani Ancestors’ accomplishments in The TRIGUSH Caribbean such as saving these countries from bankruptcies; the Vital Roles we have played in the Modernization of the Caribbean, the Fijis, Singapore, Malaysia, and East Africa; Contributions in engineering, computer sciences, and medicine etc, in the U.S.A, Canada, and Europe; Cousins accomplishments in Modernizing and Industrializing India; Need to continually “Sharpen Our Analytical Tools” to recognize when our people are being Discriminated; and, New Assertiveness Politically, Economically, and Militarily as we move into the future in every country we reside – (the Caribbean, India, North America, Fijis, Singapore, Malaysia, and Europe).
IN TRIGUSH (Tri-Trinidad, Gu – Guyana, S – Suriname, H –Hindu) Caribbean countries, we can observe the following:
Anyone who practices the Vedic Religion or is interested in the Protection of our Vedic Religion and Culture, above all other false religions, is a Hindu. These are some basic strategies of our Hindology- Hindu Ideology.
- As Hindus, we must give priority to the WISDOM, TEACHINGS and PHILOSOPHY of the VEDAS;
- Some Hindus are so confused; they seek the legitimacy of white westerners by saying that: Lord Krishna is the same as Christ; Divali is an extension of Christmas; and all religions are the same. Professor Andy Bannister says that there are superficial similarities among all religions. However, there are major fundamental differences between the religions.
- We must be knowledgeable about our ancestors’ contributions on our “fingertips,” so we are prepared to readily defend them;
- However, we must be prepared to assert and stand up to those racists, who deny us an equal place in the Caribbean or anywhere in the world;
- It may be difficult; we have to admit that Hindus have become DOCILE in the Caribbean, and even in India. After hundreds of years of BRUTAL PHYSICAL DOMINATION in INDIA, Hindus were COWERED into DOCILE COMPLACENCY.
- Since, we work harder than most people, we must demand equality in: government jobs, including the highest government Executive Offices; the police and armed forces; and in the awarding of government contracts.
- Throughout the history of Abrahamic faiths, they have always placed a priority in gaining control of the institutions of government: in Europe the Pope competed for State Power with the King; in the feudal era, the Pope had armies and engaged in wars with European Princes: he also had Sovereign Rights over areas that was ruled by him; Islamic rulers often combined the powers of the state and religion. In Saudi Arabia, the king is both the Head of State, and also a religious leader. Similarly, in Iran, the Ayatollah is both a religious and a political leader. In Christian England, the Queen is Head of State and Head of the Church. Christians and Muslims have always been conscious of the necessity of controlling State Power and State Institutions, especially The Military. In the TRIGUSH Caribbean, Black Christian Leaders, just as their counterparts in Europe, have been conscious of the necessity of establishing their dominance over State Institutions, especially the Military.
- We must protect the honor and contributions of our REVOLUTIONARY KALAPANI ancestors;
- Today, we have intellectuals from: the “Black Community and the Rented Hindus/Indian community” with a “A SHAMELESS” and “BOLDFACE” attitude telling us we did not work as hard or suffered as much, as others. These people are trying to denigrate our contributions to these countries. They try to say that Indians were not slaves, therefore they had rights. In the rice lagoons, and the burning hot sun of the cane fields, in the presence of a domineering colonial system, which IGNORED the RIGHTS OF NON-WHITES, WHAT WAS THE VALUE OF SO-CALLED RIGHTS? At that stage of exploitation, RIGHTS MEAN NOTHING.
- In the Caribbean, The Black Leaders were guided by a “Black Nationalist Ideology” to gain power at any cost.
- While Indian Leaders were fighting for Universal Camaraderie, Black leaders were fighting for Black Empowerment.
- Their aim was to use Political Power, and State Institutions to “Empower” their people.
- Black Nationalism started developing in the Colonial Era; it was Anti-White in its nascent leanings; however, after independence, the whites were gone, and Indians were now the main political opposition; anti-white ideology became anti-Indian.
- The Black leaders were better qualified for political offices.
- They had a longer history in political activities.
- They always reached out to other blacks abroad.
- Most importantly, the Blacks were willing to use force: rioting out on the streets; if they were already holding political office, they were willing to use the police and the army to bully Indians;
- Blacks were willing to Gerrymander electoral boundaries;
- Caribbean Blacks did not condemn their fellow black leaders;
- Most Caribbean Blacks shared a common Black Nationalist Ideology with over tones of racism towards Indians;
- They packed the court system with sympathetic judges; we just saw the Guyana court gave bias judgements in favor of President Granger, by its’ re-definition of what constitutes a majority.
- The various government ministries were also packed with loyal supporters;
- The rank and file or average Blacks were well organized to support any decision their leaders made;
- Blacks always portrayed themselves, as the victims of racism, even when they have been in power for decades;
- Blacks never accepted responsibility for their failures, or bad economic planning;
- They always find an excuse to blame Indians;
- They appeal to foreign leftist whites for support, by claiming they are victims of slavery and racism;
- They use the necessary government resources to reward their supporters;
- They always find “Rented Indians” to support their cause;
- They understand the Indian Political Leaders’ weaknesses such as not willing to be forceful.
The Indian Political Leaders did not have an overall Ideological philosophy. They never knew what goals they were fighting to achieve. They were reacting to the other Ethnic Groups. The Indian Leaders, in a general sense, wanted to have political office; but they did not have any concept of “Indian Empowerment;” in the same way other Ethnic groups had the concept of “Empowerment of their people;” such as the Jewish Zionist empowerment of Jews in Israel, the Fijian or Malaysian empowerment concept of Native rights; and the Chinese Singaporean concept of Settlers or Immigrant Rights. This lack of an ideology is the main reason, when the Colonial white man left, Indians docilely accepted other Ethnic groups ruling them in many countries. If you don’t know WHY YOU SHOULD HAVE POLITICAL POWER, WHY WOULD YOU PUT UP A FIGHT?
