Hindus: Time you woke up!
By MSN Menon

FOR a thousand years, the Hindus were under foreign rule?first under Muslims and then under the relatively civilised rule of the British.
This is unprecedented in human history. No people?certainly no great civilisation?have been kept in bondage for so long! The march of a great civilisation was arrested. Its roots were cut. And the memories of that age were lost. They were almost ready to embrace Islam. It is said that India would have been Islamised had it not been for the British advent.    more >

The question may be asked: ?If the Council is not a punishing body, what is its relevance??    more >
