My letter to Prime Minister Modi

Dear respected Prime Minister Narendra Modi Ji,

I am not an Indian citizen but Iove India and want her culture to flourish and spread because it is most beneficial for all humanity. Except in India, all ancient cultures have been wiped out by Christianity or Islam or in some cases by communism. India is the last ancient culture standing but heavily under attack by those three forces.

Please allow me to make a suggestion, since I know both Christianity and Hindu Dharma as an insider.

The terms ‘Heathen’, ‘Kaffir’ and ‘idol worshipper’ are highly derogative and insulting, yet freely used for Hindus and taught to Christian and Muslim children. This is dangerous, as it dehumanizes Hindus and is prone to lead to hate crimes and even genocide. An UN official said on Holocaust Day that the Holocaust of the Jews did not start with gas chambers but with hate speech. Hate speech against Hindus happens regularly in religious class of these two religions.

Could the Indian government petition the United Nations to declare the discrimination of Hindus as Heathen and Kaffirs who are rejected by the true God and thrown into eternal hell by Christianity and Islam as a violation of human dignity and equality?

The narrow, communal mind-set can be whipped into a frenzy of violence by unscrupulous leaders who remind their followers that Allah wants only Muslims on earth and therefore they need to do Jihad and will be rewarded with a higher rank in paradise (Quran 4.95). The Church may not kill any longer (it did earlier), but also sees Heathen as inferior and considers it as its duty to convert them all, which causes great damage to society. The indoctrination in both religions from childhood is very strong, and even stronger in India to “protect” them from falling back to their old ways.

Religious freedom has its limits when it infringes on the basic rights of others.

Only India, Israel and countries in Asia like Japan, China, Nepal, Thailand… can red-flag this issue, as the rest of the world are already either Muslim or Christian majority countries, though many secular European governments may support such a petition as their citizens don’t believe anymore everything what the Church wants them to believe.

Pakistan and OIC have petitioned the UN to ban criticism of Islam and Islamophobia, which is ominous and probably shows that they are aware that they can’t defend the doctrine reasonably.

India’s concern is genuine and urgent. To be seen and treated as inferior has resulted in great suffering for Hindus which is well documented. Appeals for peace between Hindus and Muslims are shallow and painful for Hindus, if we don’t address the issue what Muslims are taught about Hindus.

Now may be the right time for the Indian government to register with the UN its objection to the fact that the majority of Indian citizen are declared as the worst of creatures who “burn eternally in hell” (Quran 98.6). The Church also claims that Hindus cannot be saved from hell if they have heard of Jesus but did not accept him.

Hindus don’t take the claims that the great Creator will reject them seriously but there are many Indian Muslims and Christians who believe it. By putting those claims into the public realm, many of them may also wonder if this can really be the truth.

These two religions probably cannot be reformed but people can lose faith in the harmful aspects. An exodus from Christianity and to a smaller extent even from Islam has started already, and India can help to accelerate it.

Pointing out the mind-set which led to millions killed over the centuries, and trying to change it, is probably the most important aspect in this war of civilizations.

Kindly see the attached draft in English and Hindi, which could be used as a basis for a petition to the United Nations.

Yours Sincerely
Maria Wirth

    Thanks for sharing and highlighting the dirty tricks of hate mongers. All religions should be respected. But at the same time one should defend one’s own religion or belief. I greatly appreciate your gesture to diminish inter religion hatred. In spite of not being a Hindu yourself, you have shown a great courage to point out wrong doings of priests and moulvis. I fully support your suggestion. Jai Hind🙏 Bhajman Nanavaty

    1. Thanks. Divisive aspects in religions should not be respected. Trust in a Supreme Intelligence, yes, but not irresponsible claims about the nature of the Supreme Intelligence

    The letter speaks bitter Truths about what heathens kafirs n idol worshippers mean to their followers.Its demeaning,degrading, violates the principles of equality n equanimity. Indian government must act on it as suggested.Thank you Maria Wirth. You are a true human being who see everyone as equals.

    1. Thank you. More people need to realize this. Hope something comes out of it

    Dear Maria Ma’am,

    Thanks for raising and bringing up such an important write-up on one of the most critical subjects in the entire world today. Definitely no such religion or whatsoever has right to spread hatredness against others just based on something which has been written in books!!! So the source itself is against humanity!!! This is indeed strange which now everyone should take note of.

    Best regards,

    1. Yes, I hope something comes out of it

    Dear madam,
    I am very much impressed with your writing, may I translate this into Hindi language and circulated in your name on social media which will also give you publicity thanks and regards.

    1. Thank you for the offer to translate, but it is already translated and was published in Panchjanya magazine, yesterday. I will try to put it on my blog, too. You can use it and share.
      Happy to know you like It

  15. The deception is brilliantly articulated. This view point has never been a point of discussion in the public domain in India. One reason is that an average Hindu doesn’t even know about this perspective/portrayal about them by these religions because it’s their “inside information”, other main reason is that the Hindus have been made to believe – for political and ideological benefit – that this criminal portrayal of Hindus is harmless and accepting this is “secularism”. I must say I have never heard of anyone articulating this issue as well as you have been doing. The fact that you a person of foreign origin adds to the credibility of this view point. All I can say is thank you!

  16. Ms. Maris,

    Keep up the good, very needed work.

    May be lonely, but you are one (like Rani LaxmiBai, Rani Padmavati, MiraBai) in very few to stand up & show us (Hindus) the right thing/thinking.

    Our (Hindus) tolerence HAD GONE way too shallow. Your view point is very well articulated.

    Wishing you success, & suport .

    NamahTe (Namah-Stay). Maris,

    1. thank you for the good wishes. Panchjanya has published it also in Hindi. i put it on my blog, too.
