When the Europeans came to India, the Brahmins supported and assisted them to capture the political power of Indiaand enslave the Indians. This is not new since when we analyze the history of India, it is revealed that the AryanBrahmins have acted as the traitors through the ages
The Europeans were made to believe that they and the AryanBrahmins were from the same stock
, and s
ince the Aryan Brahmins supported and assisted the Europeans to capture the political power of India, they made the world believe that the Brahmins are the leaders of Hindu Religion. Thus they have attributed special achievements and qualities to the Brahmins and have deceived the whole world.Though history reveals the fact that Hindu Religion is of the Dravidians and the Aryans have nothing to do with Hindu Religion, it was made to believe that the Brahmins are the leaders of Hindu Religion. The Europeans who coined theterm 'Hinduism' to denote all the Indian religions, made the world to believe that the Brahmins are the leaders of Hindu religion. Hence, international scholars often write that the Brahmins are the leaders of Hindu religion.
The question immediately arises as to why the Europeans propagated this ideology to the world, and theDeivanayagams give the answer.
There are many similarities between the Aryan Brahmins and the Europeans. Both of them were proud of their light complexion and followed color discrimination. They came from the outside into India and were involved in activities withthe motive of exploiting and enslaving the Indians. They prided themselves as superior over the Indians, the Dravidians,though the divine thoughts and philosophies originated from the Dravidians, and looked upon others as inferior tothemselves. However, the concept of the Dravidians is 'Every country is my country and all are my kith and kin' and they wanted to be affectionate and friendly with everyone. The Aryan Brahmins pretended that they were spiritualists(soulists) and claimed that the Vedas, which were compiled by a Dravidian, Veda Vyasa, belong to them and enslaved the people in the guise of religion. Similarly the Europeans claimed that the Bible belonged to them, and showed themselves as the leaders of Christianity, while involved in activities which enslaved others.Even though the Aryans claim that the Vedas belong to them, no correlation can be seen between the Vedas and theHindu Religion. In the Vedas the names of Saivite and Vaishnavite Gods and Goddesses do not occur, and there is no place for these deities. Nature worship is predominant in the Vedas and they are Agni (Fire), Varuna (Water), Vayu (air)...etc. Since they are fire worshippers, during their special family occasions, as the Saivite and Vaishnavite priestsinstead of worshipping Siva or Vishnu, they worship and give importance to Agni (Fire), and they degraded Siva as theGod of Sudras.
Thus, the Aryans developed the Manudharmasasthra in order to bring racism into Indian society (please seeAryansfor details). They elevated themselves as a superior caste by birth and degraded the Dravidians as a lower caste by birth.The Deivanayagams write,
In Northern India after the reign of Harsha, that is in the 7th c.A.D., the reign of ‘Huns’ started spreading and they arereferred to as demonic hordes by the historians. Huns were the cruel rulers who tyrannically suppressed and oppressed the Dravidians in northern India from 7th c.A.D. to 12th c.A.D. During this period the 1) Persians 2) Greeks 3) Sakas 4)Romans 5) Kushans and the 6) Huns who came to India in different periods without any religion were united as Aryans(Sanskrit word for noble) and were ruling. During this time, the Aryan laws like Manudharma Sasthra, which elevate the Aryans (foreigners) and degrade the Dravidians (Indians) were devised.
Another interesting fact is brought out by the Deivanayagams,
In the book titled ‘Sacred books of the East’ the author Maxmuller expounded the Vedas, Bhagavad Gita, Manusmrthi etc. However, he did not mention any one of the Tamil literatures of the east viz. Tevaram, Thiruvasagam, Nalaira DivyaPrabhandham etc., which are the foundational sacred books for Saivism and Vaishnavism.
Why did he neglect the other sacred books of the east? The Deivanayagams write,
The Aryans have an international organization known as ‘International Aryan league’ and they work tirelessly together irrespective of religion, nation, language etc. Since their prime motive is to establish their supremacy and enslaveothers in their thinking and social life, they are united together in their efforts to achieve their purpose.
