DR ZAKIR NAIK’S FRA EX AUD XPOSE ED
While I have always been critical o his appr a n of roach and conclusion I alway ns, ys ired Dr Zak Naik’s sincerity a kir and loyalty to Muslim I was im ms. mpressed b by admi his g gigantic effo forts in stu udying thou usands of p pages of sc criptures an selectin nd ng verse that could be used to deri es ive whatever crazy in nterpretatio ons he ha as deriv ved to prov Muhamm ve mad in all world scrip ptures. I a always used to wonde d er how he could gain all the time an energy to do so despite su nd uch a bus sy schedule of lecturing w s f world arou und! But sudden I came across a book “Muh B nly e hammad in World W Scriptures” by Maulan S ” na Abdu ul Haqu ue Vidyarthi w V written in 1936. And I was shoc cked to fin nd that Dr Za t akir Naik h has done NOTHING M MORE THAN N simply cop s pying-pastin from this book, m ng mostly word dto-word an cooked up his ow ‘origina research t nd wn al’ which he uses to c w claim that he is an expert in n ‘Comparative ‘ Reli igion’. This T is blatan nt iarization! And that to from a so A oo ource that h follower consider worse tha his rs r an plagi Kafir rs. So a Dr Zak Naik ha done is copying from work of anoth all kir as s ks her person n, mem morizing tho ose and claiming all the fame for himsel And he did this s lf! so blind that he did not bo dly other even s the bac see ckground o the origin writer o of nal or how he has ba w ackstabbed his follow d wers in the p process. Bec cause Mau ulana Adbu Haque V ul Vidyarthi w was not a an ord dinary Musl lim. On contrary, he belong n ged to a c cult which almost th he ent tire Muslim world, a m and especi ially the s sects which believe in ide eology of D Zakir Na conside Dr aik ers as non nuslim. They are in fact bann y ned in Pak kistan an nd Mu ma any other c countries. Ask any M Muslim scho olar, and h he woul start hur ld rling abuse on them for disgrac es cing Islam a and Muham mmad. Yes, I am refer rring to the Ahmadiyy or Qadiy e ya yani cult. M Maulana A Abdul Haqu ue Vidya arthi was a disciple of its founde Mirza G er, Ghulam Ahm who is considere med s ed wors than a Ka by all M se afir Muslims wh are fan o Dr Zakir Naik. ho of The reasons why Muslim hate Ah w ms hmadiyyas and refuse to consid them a e der as Musl lims are be ecause they hold cert y tain beliefs that no M s Muslim and follower o d of Dr.Zakir Naik would dare to agree. S w Some are as follows: s a. a Ahmadiy yyas believ that M ve Mirza Ghulam Ahmed was a Prophet o d or Messeng ger, and this is ’shirk’ – unpardon nable sin a per Muslims as b. Ahmadiy yyas believe that Mirz Ghulam Ahmed con e za ntinued to receive new w revelations c.

e. Ahmadiyyas believe that Kalki Avatar would also be the final Prophet and most importantly, the founder of Ahmadiyya cult had hurled abuses and even cursed to Hell those who refused to believe in his prophethood! The concept of Avtar is a ’shirk’ as per Islam. All Islamic Madarsa teach books of Maulvi Md Ismail which specifically states that anyone believing in Avtars or further Prophets or Avtars as Prophets is doing ’shirk’. Dr Zakir Naik knows all this – that is why in FAQ on Hinduism, he refused to accept that Vedas can be revelations.But he forgot that the material he has used to write other articles are directly lifted from Maulana Abdul Haque’s writings who agrees that Vedas are revelations. Thus proving Prophet in Vedas or Bhavishya Puran is fine with Ahmadiyyas because that is how they justify prophethood of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad also. But for all other Muslims, on whose faith popularity of Dr Zakir Naik rests, this is ’shirk’. While these writings do not affect Hindus or even Buddhists, Christians etc much, they definitely backstab a devout Muslim. In summary, Dr Zakir Naik is guilty of : a. Copying directly, even word to word, from works of Maulana Abdul Haque Vidyarthi, an Ahmadiyya without even quoting his references b. Using his own name instead to falsely proclaim that he is expert on comparative religion c. Cheating with other Muslims who consider Ahmadiyya and their beliefs to be worse than those of Kafirs d. Backstabbing his blind followers who quote his works without realizing that Dr Zakir Naik has made them a sacrificial goat at mercy of Qadianis/ Ahmadiyyas. e. Trying to prove Vedas and Puran contain revelations of Muhammad but also refusing to clear admit Vedas as revelations. Thus he has deliberately not made clear whether in reality Dr Zakir Naik is a Qadiyani or not It seems obvious that Dr Zakir Naik is actually a Qadiyani/Ahmadiyya in disguise trying to fool common Muslims. But why does he need to put this disguise? is it because Ahmadiyyas are persecuted in all Muslim countries? Or is it that he is a spy with some other hidden agenda. Or perhaps, the way he claims to have discovered new researches in Quran that even Allah, Muhammad, Ali et al could not discover, he is laying foundation of his own Prophethood! Only Dr Zakir Naik knows what is the real truth and what is his true mission. But his backstabbing has left his blind followers nowhere. Either they will have to admit to Ahmadiyya beliefs, which is the complete foundation of his writings and ‘research’ or regret their faith in Dr Zakir Naik being a Muslim.And as per Islamic Criminal Law, that Dr Zakir Naik is such a great fan of, he himself can decide what should be the most appropriate punishment for him. Sharia says that a thief’s hands should be chopped off. Hadiths say that one who deserts

Z Zakir Naik’s article giv various prophecies under fou headings Under th s ves s ur s. he first headin (I) are th f ng hree prophe ecies from the book B Bhavishya P Purana. Th he first of thes is given a follows: f se as “A m malecha (be elonging to a foreign country an speakin a foreig language nd ng gn e) spirit tual teache will appe with his companion His nam will be M er ear s ns. me Mohammad d.

Panchgavya and the Ganga water (i.e. purifying him of all sins), offered him the present of his sincere devotion and showing him all reverence said, I make obeisance to thee. O Ye! The pride of mankind, the dweller in Arabia, Ye have collected a great force to kill the Devil and you yourself have been protected from the malecha opponents.” This is also the first prophecy in Maulana Abdul Haq Vidyarthi’s book. It is identical with the quotation in Zakir Naik’s article. Except that in the Maulana’s book the word malecha is spelt as malechha, and his quotation has the following extra words at the end: “O Ye! The image of the Most Pious God, the biggest Lord, I am a slave to thee, take me as one lying on thy feet. 2. After quoting the prophecy, Zakir Naik’s article draws out six points from it. The Maulana, after quoting the prophecy, lists ten points. We find that Zakir Naik’s first three points are the same as the Maulana’s first three points, and his points (4), (5) and (6) are the same as numbers (10), (7) and (6) respectively of the Maulana. The wording is also very similar. For example, point (3) in both begins with the words: Special mention is made of the companions of the Prophet”. 3. Following these six points, there are two further comments in Zakir Naik’s article. The first is in answer to the objection that Raja Bhoj lived in the 11th century C.E. The objection and its answer as given in this article are exactly as in the Maulana’s book, namely, that there was not just one Raja Bhoj. The article says: “The Egyptian Monarchs were called as Pharaoh and the Roman Kings were known as Caesar, similarly the Indian Rajas were given the title of Bhoj.” while the Maulana’s book has: “Just as the Egyptian monarchs were known as Pharaohs and the Roman kings were called Kaisers, similarly, the Indian rajas were given the epithet of Bhoj” 4. The second comment relates to the part of the prophecy about giving the promised one a bath in the Ganges, and the article says: The Prophet did not physically take a bath in the Panchgavya and the water of Ganges. Since the water of Ganges is considered holy, taking bath in the Ganges is an idiom, which means washing away sins or immunity from all sorts of sins. Here the prophecy implies that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was sinless, i.e. Maasoom The same comment is found in the Maulana’s book in the following words: “Another point which requires elucidation is the Prophet’s taking bath in ‘Panchgavya’ and the water of the Ganges. This did not, of course, actually happen as it was only a vision; so we give it the interpretation that the Prophet will be purged of and made immune from all sorts of sins.” 5. The second prophecy from the book Bhavishya Purana in Zakir Naik’s article is also the second prophecy in the Maulana’s chapter. It begins with the words:

The Malecha have spoiled the well-known land of the Arabs. Arya Dharma is not to be found in the country. The wording of the entire prophecy (of which about one-tenth is given above) is identical in the article and the book. 6. Following the prophecy, Zakir Naik’s article makes ten points about it, while the Maulana’s book makes twelve points. Naik’s first two points are the same as the Maulana’s first two points. His 3rd to his 10th point are the same as the Maulana’s points (5) to (12), in the same order. 7. The third and final prophecy from the book Bhavishya Purana in Zakir Naik’s article begins as follows: Corruption and persecution are found in seven sacred cities of Kashi, etc In the Maulana’s book also, this is the next prophecy, and is given in almost the same words. 8. We now reach the second heading (II) in Zakir Naik’s article. Under this are given three prophecies from the Atharva Veda. In the Maulana’s book also, these are the prophecies that occur next. Each and every point noted in the article about these prophecies is to be found in the Maulana’s book, in the same order. Below I list the chief aspects of these prophecies as mentioned in Zakir Naik’s article and place in parenthesis the page number in Muhammad in World Scriptures where the same is mentioned: Kuntap, which is the name of some chapters of the Atharva Veda, stands for Bakkah, a name of Makkah. The word Narashansah means ‘the praised one’ and refers to the Holy Prophet.The Holy Prophet is prophesied as the camel-riding rishi.He is called Mamah Rishi and given certain signs such as a hundred gold coins, ten chaplets, etc.He is called Rebh, which means the same as the name ‘Ahmad’.The battle of the Allies of the Holy Prophet’s time is described and the word karo refers to the Holy Prophet.The conquest of Makka is prophesied and the Holy Prophet is termed as an abandhu, meaning a helpless man. 9. Coming now to the third heading (III) in Zakir Naik’s article, under it one prophecy is briefly mentioned, to the effect that the Sanskrit word sushrava in the Rig Veda applies to the Holy Prophet. The same is in the Maulana’s book. 10. The fourth and final heading in Zakir Naik’s article gives one prophecy, which is from the Sama Veda, and it is translated as follows: Ahmed acquired from his Lord the knowledge of eternal law. I received light from him just as from the sun. This prophecy is found in similar words in the Maulana’s book. 11. Zakir Naik’s article then makes three points about this prophecy. The first of these is that the word ‘Ahmad’ here has been read by previous translators not as a name but as Ahm at hi and therefore they translated

the mantra as alone have acquired the real wisdom of my father”. These three points under this prophecy are found in the Maulana’s discussion. 12. At this point Zakir Naik’s article comes to an end — and so does the chapter ‘The Prophet in the Hindu Scriptures’ in Maulana Abdul Haq Vidyarthi’s book. It can be seen that the article by Zakir Naik is nothing at all more than a greatly compressed version of certain parts of the Maulana’s treatment of the subject, following exactly the same order as in the Maulana’s book. No doubt a later author can make use of the work of an earlier one, but if he benefits substantially from it then integrity requires that he must acknowledge the source. In this case, the later author has merely repeated the results of the earlier work without any contribution at all by himself, and with no mention of the earlier work.

Do Hindu scriptures contain any Divine revelations?
The research by the Maulana was based on the teaching of Islam that prophets from God had appeared among all nations before the Prophet Muhammad. Muslim scholars had generally limited this to the Israelite prophets and a few others. Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad revived and laid stress on this unique teaching and concluded from it that the great sacred persons of the Hindu religion must have been true prophets and its scriptures must have been Divine revelations originally. It was on the basis of this belief that the Maulana found prophecies about the Holy Prophet Muhammad in Hindu scriptures. This is why, in explaining the second prophecy given above, the Maulana writes: The coming prophet will attest the truth of the Aryan faith. However, Dr Zakir Naik has stated, in a different place, that the Vedas may not be revealed scriptures. Answering the question, whether we can consider the Vedas and the other Hindu Scriptures to be the revelations of God?, he replies: There is no text in the Quran or Sahih Hadith mentioning the name of the revelation that was sent to India. Since the names of the Vedas or other Hindu scriptures are no where to be found in Quran and Sahih Hadith, one cannot say for sure that they were the revelations of God. They may be the revelation of God or may not be the revelation of God. If nothing at all in them was revealed by God, then how did prophecies about the advent of the Holy Prophet come to be in these books? If they may not be revelations at all, then it is also possible that the quotations from them

given by Dr Zakir Naik may not be prophecies about the Holy Prophet Muhammad revealed by God. Interestingly, in his article Dr Naik has actually copied the Maulana’s statement above: The coming prophet will attest the truth of the Aryan faith, which means that the Holy Prophet confirmed that those scriptures were originally revealed by God. Perhaps Dr Naik did not realise that this contradicts his own belief expressed elsewhere.

WHY MUSLIMS MUCH?
HATE

ZAKIR NAIK

SO

Zakir Bhai MBBS aka Dr Zakir Naik has been among the most hated public figures of today. Deoband recently issued a fatwa against him. There is no doubt that Zakir Bhai is among the most smartly marketed religious celebrity of last few years. He claims to represent and propagate Islam. He considers himself a servant of Muhammad (pbuh). Yet it is the Muslims and Islamic clerics who hate Zakir Naik the most. In this post, I shall briefly list out reasons why Muslims hate Zakir Naik so much that many claim that he would be the first person to enter Dozakh (refer “We Hate Zakir Naik” at http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=11564655041 5. Let me provide a brief background. Most people consider Islam to be the religion propagated by Prophet Muhammad and narrated in Quran. On surface it appears all so simple. Quran proclaims that one who submits to the word of final messenger of Allah shall achieve Heaven. But things are not so simple for a layman, and even a scholar. Because while there is only one Quran and one Prophet Muhammad, there is tremendous variety in the types of interpretations that so-called Muslims make out of this book and this great social-reformer. In short, Islam is not as monolithic as it appears to be. The number of sects in Islam are more than 72 and they are as different from each other as dry is from wet and cold is from hot. All these sects have different customs, different levels of tolerances for non-Muslims, different food habits, different interpretations of Quran, different level of importance given to Muhammad and his associates and different descriptions of Heaven and Hell. The Shia-Sunni war is clearly known. What makes the things even more confusing is the belief that of these 72+ sects only one is on path of truth and hence only one will go to Heaven. Rest go to Hell. Thus it is not sufficient to just be a Muslim to achieve Heaven, you need to follow only the right sect. Now each sect fights to prove that they are the genuine sect. Some sects are liberal enough to allow even non-Muslims to Heaven. Some Muslims are even promoters of vegetarianism. Some consider nation ahead of everything else. But there are some who believe that all except those who fully believe in their sect and its practices without questioning anything, alone will go to Heaven. Rest of all will be in Hell forever. Among the most fanatic of these cults is the Wahabi cult. This is supposed to be the producer of largest number of terrorists including Osama and Al Qaeda since its inception in 18th century and has been a cause of disgrace for rest of the peace-loving Muslims. Dr Zakir Naik belongs to this Wahabi cult, believes that only this Wahabi version of Islam can bring anyone close to Heaven, and rest of all will go to Hell. And things are not as simple. Further, he mixes his Wahabism with material from other scholars of different sects to create his own Zakirism, that in the process blatantly insults and disgraces the vision of Islam as per other sects, including the more tolerant ones. His

www.agniveer.com
Zakirism goes to such extent that he does not even spare Wahabis from humiliations. Let us see how: A. Zakir Bhai MBBS claims to be an expert of comparative religions. In his site, he has put lots of articles on comparative religions under his name. But in reality, they are merely word to word copy of texts from Qadiyani/Ahmadiyya sources. So what is wrong if one refers to Qadiyani or Ahmadiyya sources? Perhaps nothing, except that: a. Qadiyanis/ Ahmadiyyas are considered Kafirs and are prosecuted by most Muslims for their radical beliefs. b. Wahabis have been greatest enemies of Qadiyanis c. The content of the Qadiyani writings that Zakir Bhai MBBS has swindled under his own name are blatantly against core beliefs of rest of the Muslims including Wahabis. For example, Zakir Bhai MBBS tries to prove that Vedas prophecize about Muhammad. (This has been completely refuted in a three-part expose starting with this article http://agniveer.com/prophet-hindu/ Now this belief gels with the Qadiyani belief that Vedas were also revelations. But Wahabis and other sects refuse to believe so. Hence even Zakir Bhai MBBS writes in another article that he is not sure if Vedas are revelations. He conveniently forgets that he himself has proved that Vedas reveal Muhammad in another article! (Perhaps because he forgot to read it before asking his henchmen to copy from Qadiyani book and paste under his name in his site and books) In summary, Zakir Bhai continues to use Qadiyani source to show his scholarly capabilities but refuses to accept Qadiyanis because he claims to be Wahabi and is funded by Wahabi militants.Or is he a Qadiyani spy in Wahabi disguise? Only Zakir Bhai knows the reality, but his acts suffice to invite hatred of Qadiyanis as well as other Muslim sects. B. Zakir Bhai justifies non-vegetarianism as a scientific Islamic trait. While he does acknowledge that even a Muslim can be vegetarian, he attempts to justify meat-eating on crazy arguments including research by some farmers. (read the rebuttal here: http://agniveer.com/halal/) This catches ire of several progressive Muslims who refuse to believe that meat-eating has any association with religion. Many progressive Muslims have even started a Muslim Vegetarian Society that is among the most powerful protagonists of Vegetarianism and opponents of Halal meat. They have severely condemned Zakir Naik and his spurious research for disgracing Islam to justify the lust of his own tongue. (You can visit their site at http://www.islamveg.com/halalmeat.asp) C. Being a Wahabi he has a soft corner for Osama Bin Laden. When someone questioned him on his views on Osama, he replied that he admires him because he has terrorized America! He shied away from criticizing terrorist activities of Osama. This created a lot of furore among Muslims and Deoband even issued a fatwa against Zakir Bhai for his tacit support for Osama Bin Laden. (Deobandi Fatwa against Zakir Bhai-

http://sunninews.wordpress.com/2008/05/10/deobandi-fatwa-againstzakir-naikalso-denying-fatawa-against-cow-slaughter/)Reasons are obvious – the money that funds Osama and money that funds Zakir Bhai have allegedly the same sources. Many terrorists caught in past few years have admitted that they were inspired by rhetoric of Zakir Bhai MBBS. While on surface he claims to be a conservative Muslim, he wears a nonIslamic dress which has per Islamic hadiths would lead one to be treated as a non-Muslim during Judgment Day. Many devout Muslims thus consider their dress very seriously and hate Dr Zakir Naik for setting wrong examples by wearing Kafir dress of tie, suit and coat. Wahabis have destroyed many Sufi shrines and even house of Prophet Muhammad because they believe these to be signs of idol worship. They killed many Muslim men, women and children in their campaigns to destroy tombs and holy places. (Refer wikipedia on Wahabism) In the same footsteps, Zakir Naik severely condemns these practices to be anti-muslim and hence is hated by those who worship graves, Sufis and tombs. Shias obviously have a reason to hate Zakir Bhai MBBS because of his staunch anti-Shia stance, being a Wahabi. But his admiration of Yazeed, considered to be culprit for massacre of Karbala has been a strong point of contention for other Muslims. So much is the hatred against Yazeed that many curse by name of Yazeed. Zakir justifies the ban on worship of other religions in Muslim countries. He however also justifies that Muslims should be allowed in other countries to promote their religion. The logic is curious – as per Zakir Bhai, in matters of religion, Muslims are the best. So they should be allowed everywhere – Muslim or non-Muslim countries. But non-Muslims should not be allowed to build places of worship in Muslim countries because their religions are inferior to Islam!

Such ultra-fanaticism irks the more progressive Muslims who want to integrate with rest of the world and rise above religious dogmas and hatred. H. Being an ultra-conservative he propagates that despite a person being as much good or noble, unless he unconditionally accepts his version of Islam, he will go to Hell and Hell alone and forever. This goes against beliefs of more progressive Muslims who believe that all who act with genuineness, regardless of their religion will go to Heaven and not Hell. I. Muslim women obviously have all the reasons to hate Zakir Bhai because in name of pseudo-science he is simply restricting their freedom that has been ordained by the Creator. For example, he states that Muslim women should always wear Hijab and Burqa and cover their entire body always. Medical researchers are worried that such unreasonable practices cause dreaded diseases due to lack of Vitamin D in Muslim countries which enforce such beliefs on women. More liberal Muslims see such insistence as dangerous dogma harming the cause of Muslims and Human Rights.

He further states that Muslim women should not work in offices because they may have chance to be alone with men even for a second. The only men that a woman is allowed to be alone with are her husband and those who have suckled her. Taking this crazy dogma of Zakir Bhai further, the Head of Hadith Department of the most reputed university of Islam in world recently issued a fatwa that Muslim women should allow their male colleagues to suckle them five times. This will allow them to work with these men, even when alone! Zakir Bhai debars women from being any doctor except gynecologists because that is haram as per his version of Islam. Women should not take part in sports as well! He further defends polygamy by furnishing false data on population but disallows polyandry. Read his views on polygamy http://agniveer.com/polygamy/). He justifies the belief that women are less intelligent than men and hence evidence of two women equal that of one man! He thus also justifies that women cannot inherit equal to their male counterparts! No wonder, he would agree to dogma that to prove a rape, a woman should bring ample number of witnesses who have witnessed actual penetration! The list can go on and on. So much that now even Wahabis have started calling Zakir Bhai a Shaitan. Read this- http://www.scribd.com/doc/21622373/ZakirNaik-Exposed-by-Wahabis-and-salaifs-ahle-hadeth-scholars And other sects who do not receive as much funding as Osama or Zakir Bhai try tooth and nail to debunk his fraud through all means. Watch http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VeV5F8fte14 The process of seeking truth demands process of elimination. One may not be sure and continue to debate on which of the 72 or more sects of Islam would lead one to Heaven, or whether Quran itself is the authentic Quran and not the new Quran as created recently. One may not be sure whether a permanent Hell or Heaven, or Fairshtas or Jinnas exist in first place. One may doubt if Muhammad was a great non-divine social -reformer or actually a Messenger of Allah’s word. One can debate if Quran deserves to be final word of Allah and what should be its interpretation or what new good thing Quran provides which was not there in previous books. But one fact is sure, there is not even a scope for debate, and certain persons should be out-rightly banished to Hell or helllike place for benefit of rest of the civilized peaceful society. They include i. ii. iii. iv. v. people who dare not condemn terrorists like Osama who consider that all except their sect will burn in permanent Hell despite how-so-much good they do in their lives who cannot tolerate others but want themselves to be tolerated everywhere who believe that women are inferior or bereft of intelligence who justify inferior rights and curtailment of freedom for women "NO COPYRIGHTS" AND "INTENDED FOR FREE CIRCULATION"

who do not clear their stand and purely use material prepared by someone else to claim scholar status for self and yet condemn the source.

Such terrorism sympathizers are threat for any civilized society. Progressive and even conservative Muslims have showed the right way by criticizing Zakir Naik so severely. The first and foremost religion of humans is humanity. The way noble-minded Muslims have shown courage and mettle to condemn the dangerous frauds of Zakir Bhai that are detrimental to entire humanity is warmly welcomed. Such steps in right direction pave way for right direction for seekers of true knowledge.

ZAKIR BHAI, MBBS DEFENDS HALAL MEAT

Islam definitely means ‘peace’ in Arabic. However fake Islamic representatives like Zakir Bhai, MBBS (Dr Zakir Naik) are bent on proving the contrary. We have already seen how Dr Zakir Naik, who claims to be a Wahabi, is actually a Qadiyani with an agenda of his own. Refer the expose on his fraud writings http://agniveer.com/misc/naikexposed/) It is not a surprise that the world sees a brutal history in Islam, if people like Dr Zakir Naik continue to remain its representative. We shall not dwell into the historical part, but would review another extract from a book claimed to be written by Dr Zakir Abdul Karim Naik – “Answer to Non-Muslims’ Common Questions About Islam”. I am not sure from where Dr Zakir Naik has lifted the material for this book, now that we already know that all he does is to copy-paste from previous books from copyrighted Qadiyani sources without acknowledging the author (since Qadiyanis are considered non-Muslims by most Muslims especially Wahabis)

WWW.AGNIVEER.COM

But very honestly, if one replaces Dr Zakir Naik’s name with some other nonMuslim name, this books appears to be a book of dark humor to humiliate Islam written by an enemy of Islam. When I first got the copy of the book, I thought it was created by an anti-Muslim to denigrate Islam and Zakir Bhai, MBBS. But when I searched on internet and found this to be actually written to promote Islam, I was shocked! But now that we know the hidden agenda of Zakir Bhai, MBBS, I would request my Muslim brothers and sisters to ensure they are not sharing this book “Answer to Non-Muslims’ Common Questions About Islam” and promoting defamation of Islam – which means peace. We have already briefly seen how Zakir Bhai, MBBS has made mockery of Islam by giving funny reasons to justify polygamy in this post. In present post, we shall discuss another topic from “Answer to Non-Muslims’ Common Questions About Islam” and see why with friends like Zakir Bhai, MBBS, who needs enemies.

EATING NON-VEGETARIAN FOOD (Page 18-21)
Dr Naik starts with usual details of ayats from Quran permitting non-vegetarian food and stating that even a vegetarian can be a Muslim. Then he goes to discuss typical health benefits of non-vegetarian food which have been debated and contested for long. We shall not dwell into those and recommend to go through a variety of resources available on internet. (The purpose of this article is not to debate vegetarian food vs nonvegetarian food, but to see how Dr Zakir Naik is humiliating Islam). DR.NAIK’S REMARK Suddenly Dr. Zakir Naik gets bizarre. He claims, “One may ask, if Almighty God wanted humans to have only vegetables, why He provided us also with pointed teeth? It is logical that He expected us to need and to have both vegetarian as well as non-vegetarian food.” COMMENT: 1. I am sure Zakir Bhai, MBBS who claims to be an MBBS knows at least that there are large number of vegetarian food that require tearing and hence use of pointed teeth (canines). A simple example is sugarcane. In fact almost all vegetarian food that are hard require use of pointed teeth! 2. The pointed teeth (canine) in humans are not as large and pointed as in case of carnivorous animals. In humans, they are of same size as other teeth. In fact, it is the vegetarians who give this argument to justify vegetarianism! 3. Thus I am not sure if Zakir Bhai, MBBS actually wrote this to support Islamic non-vegetarianism or make of mockery of it…

WWW.AGNIVEER.COM

DR.NAIK’S REMARK He goes further berserk and states, “If Almighty God wanted us to have only vegetables then why did He give us a digestive system that can digest both vegetarian as well as non-vegetarian food?”

COMMENT: 1. I now sincerely doubt if Zakir Bhai, MBBS is an MBBS in first place. Maybe he followed Munna Bhai is getting the degree. Or perhaps he does not check the content before copy-pasting. Or perhaps he is doing it deliberately, being a Qadiyani.

2. Our digestive system can digest even human flesh and blood. In fact many parts of human bodies can provide large amounts of nutrients. Does it mean we should start eating dead bodies instead of burying them and drinking their blood? 3. Even if humans eat their own excreta, the digestive system would process it one more time. Do we start eating that? 4. Now some followers of Zakir Bhai, MBBS have started quoting from Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim, to justify that even saliva is good for health! SEE SOME EXAMPLES: Muhammad used his saliva to soften a date, and then gave it to an infant to suck…(Sahih Bukhari, 25.5340, 5341, 5345) When Anas’s son was born Muhammad fed him with dates mixed with his (Muhammad’s) saliva and gave him the name Abdullah…(Sahih Bukhari, 31.6013) Muhammad’s saliva is good for children. He used to spit into the mouth of suckling children, and his saliva would satisfy them until nightfall…(Ash Shifa, p.184) If a baby sucked Muhammad’s tongue, the baby became quiet…(Ash Shifa, p.184) He gave al-Hasan and al-Husayn his tongue to suck. They had been weeping from thirst and upon sucking Muhammad’s tongue they became quiet…(Ash Shifa, p.184) People rubbed Muhammad’s spittle on their faces…(Ash Shifa, p.237) Muhammad recommended that you can spit on your cloth and then fold it and rub it…(Sahih Muslim, 4.1121) Spit three times to the left when someone questions who created Allah…(ibn Ishaq, p.270) “ So perhaps, Zakir Bhai, MBBS is soon going start suggesting consumption of each others’ saliva on same set of arguments and proofs from Hadiths, as he does to support non-vegetarianism! Or maybe selling his saliva along with his books, on same logic that he is using to justify meat here.)

WWW.AGNIVEER.COM

DR.NAIK’S REMARK Zakir Bhai, MBBS goes further beyond senses when he starts quoting from Hindu Scriptures that they contain permission to eat a variety of meat. He says: “There are many Hindus who are strictly vegetarian. They think it is against their religion to consume non-

"NO COPYRIGHTS" AND "INTENDED FOR FREE CIRCULATION"

www.agniveer.com
vegetarian food. But the true fact is that the Hindu scriptures permit a person to have meat. The scriptures mention Hindu sages and saints consuming nonvegetarian food.” He goes on to cite evidences from Hindu Scriptures – Manu Smriti and Mahabharat.” COMMENT: 1. I do not understand why suddenly Hindu scriptures emerge in a book on Muslims. Its a common theme in his copy-pasted plagiarized material that in a ‘research’ on Hinduism, he would quote more from Quran and Hadiths; and in a ‘research’ on Islam, he would quote from Hindu texts! Perhaps because, being a Qadiyani he believes that Hinduism is the oldest religion and Islam is only a revision! But then what about his Wahabi claim? 2. With regards to Manu Smriti, it clearly prohibits meat in 5.51 which says: “Those who permit slaying of animals; those who bring animals for slaughter; those who slaughter; those who sell meat; those who purchase meat; those who prepare dish out of it; those who serve that meat and those who eat are all murderers.” Its an open fact that almost half of Manu Smriti is either adulterated or misinterpreted. That is why no Brahmin involved in rituals ever resorts to meat-eating. If indeed Manu Smriti allowed meat-eating, Brahmins would have been the biggest meat-eating class in India! One should refer to Dr Surendra Kumar available from Manusmriti by http://www.vedicbooks.com to evaluate this in detail. 3. The Mahabharat evidence is also irrelevant because Mahabharat is not considered an authentic scripture in matters of Dharma in Hinduism. Mahabharat itself states in Shantiparva 265.9.4: “Suraa Matsyaa Pashormaasam Aasavam Krisharoudanam Dhurtaih Prvartitam Yajne Naitad Vedeshu Vidyate Avyavasthitamaryaadaeh Vimudhairnaastikaeh Naraeh Sanshayaatmabhiravyaktaih Hinsaa Samanuvarnitaa” Meaning: Alcohol-drinking, Fish, Meat eating, aasava consumption – these are not present in Vedas. These have been propagated by fraud people. They have fraudulently added these uncontrolled, reckless, atheist descriptions in our texts. Further Mahabharat states “Mansaharinah Kuto Daya” – How can you expect compassion from a meat-eater! The only authoritative text for Hinduism is The Vedas. So if one has to prove meat-eating, he has to show it in the Vedas. And for Vedas, refer to http://agniveer.com/vedas/no-beef-in-vedas/ to see beyond doubt that Vedas severely condemn meat-eating.)

DR.NAIK’S REMARK In next point, Dr Naik vegetarianism from Jains! COMMENT: 1. How is this point relevant in a book explaining logic of Muslim practices is best known to Zakir Bhai, MBBS. 2. Hindus and Jains both have origin from same basic humanistic ideology as presented in Vedas. The traits of Dharma as presented by both is almost similar. Jains are an integrated part of the society that is nowadays called Hindu. Zakir Bhai, MBBS attempts to deliberately create differences between them by providing statements out of context which is utterly deplorable. 3. Or perhaps he is trying to feed his Qadiyani agenda! claims that Hindus adopted

DR.NAIK’S REMARK Next he goes on to prove that Plants also have life and that Plants also feel pain. He states: “If a person can survive without killing any living creature, I would be the first person to adopt such a way of life. In the past people thought plants were lifeless. Today it is a universal fact that even plants have life. Thus their logic of not killing living creatures is not fulfilled even by being a pure vegetarian….There was research done by a farmer in U.S.A. who invented an instrument which converted the cry of the plant so that it could be heard by human beings. He was able to realize immediately when the plant itself cried for water. Latest researches show that the plants can even feel happy and sad. It can also cry.” COMMENT: 1. Look at the source of research of Zakir Bhai, MBBS: a FARMER in USA! No scientist, institution, or university, but a farmer best known only to Zakir Bhai MBBS! What more one needs to see if he is defending or defaming Islam! 2. No such research has ever been conducted, nor it is possible to conduct. While researches have been done to establish similar electrochemical and biochemical reactions in plants as in animals, there is nothing to suggest that plants cry or feel pain. Opinion is divided among theists on whether

plants have soul or not, but all agree that plants do not feel pain in the manner animals feels. 3. Incidentally, all Muslims are not as fanatic as Zakir Bhai, MBBS would want the world to believe. There is a growing population of Islamic vegetarians who interpret the Quran to justify vegetarianism. Many among them refuse to consider the Quran in current form as final word of Allah and are much progressive. Some even believe that part of Quran is correct and the rest is adulterated or misquoted by followers of Prophet Muhammad to present an Islam which is completely against the true concept of Islam. Some are approaching Vedas to understand original Dharma. We shall discuss the views of these rational Muslims who submit to reason in another article. But here, let me reproduce reply to Zakir Bhai, MBBS by a leading Muslim vegetarians society (http://islamveg.com):

DO PLANTS FEEL PAIN?
Some Muslims have been misled by Internet discussions indicating that plants feel pain. This argument is used by those who wish to justify their meat consumption by claiming that because both plants and animals feel pain, there is no ethical or religious difference between killing plants for food and killing animals for food. Not Taking “Life” One argument begins by explaining that plants have “life,” presumably just the same as animals and humans, and thus, this argument claims that one cannot avoid taking life simply by consuming plant foods. The concept of life used in this argument is nebulous and general, and the argument does not make a moral or religious distinction between the life possessed by plants and that possessed by animals. One author claims that if it were possible to eat a diet that did not involve taking life, he would adopt that diet immediately, but since, according to the author, a vegetarian diet also takes “life,” he states that he may as well carry on eating meat. In addition to the lack of clarification about the concept of life and the lack of distinction between animal life and plant life, the author failed to note that a diet that meets his criteria does exist. Many people follow a “fruitarian” diet, meaning that they eat fruits, some vegetables that have seeds, and nuts. Fruitarian diets do not require the taking of “life,” as plants produce fruits, seeds, and nuts so that they can be eaten. The plants neither suffer nor die to provide these foods. While we do not recommend this diet, it does meet this author’s criteria, and if the taking of “life” really is so important, this is the diet for him. Supporters of this view of “life” also claim that since both plants and animals have life, it is better to take the life of one animal, who might feed 100 people, than to take the life of 100 or more plants to feed the same number of people. The fallacy of this argument will be investigated in more detail below.

PLANTS’ INABILITY TO FEEL PAIN
Supporters of this theory also claim that plants feel pain and that one farmer used a device to “scientifically” catch the sounds of plants “crying out” and “screaming” in pain. They state that our limited range of hearing cannot pick up the “screams” of plants but that machines can. The truth is that plants, when stressed, release a chemical called ethylene. This chemical indicates that the plant needs to increase cell growth or take other measures against the perceived stressor. Scientists measured levels of ethylene released from stressed plants by “listening” to them using lasers until a certain frequency was measured.

While this research shows that plants might have a stressavoidance response, it is quite a stretch to refer to this as “pain.” It is even more erroneous to equate this response with the pain suffered by animals and human beings. Plants lack nerve endings, brains, hormones, and other structures that would allow them to experience pain. They also lack the ability to move away from sources of stress, an evolutionary trait linked with the ability to feel pain. Even those who argue that plants feel pain and suffer should support a vegetarian diet because the number of plants that must be fed to an animal to produce enough meat for one human is greater than the number of plants required to feed that same human if he or she ate the plants directly. Meat-eaters are responsible for “killing” 10 times more plants than vegetarians, and they also kill and cause suffering to animals. The argument that plants feel pain and suffer and that killing them is as bad as killing animals is weak and illogical. Those who use this argument to justify their continued consumption of meat should attempt to approach the debate in a more logical, scientific manner. Such claims have fooled many well-intentioned Muslims into perpetuating these falsehoods on the Internet. This is harmful to our Ummah, as it makes us appear ignorant and ill informed.

WWW.AGNIVEER.COM

We ask that all Muslims who have put forward such unfounded claims remove these claims from their Web sites and other public forums and cease spreading these fictitious claims at conferences and debates. For more information regarding plants’ inability to feel pain, see Peter Singer’s Animal Liberation.”

DR.NAIK’S REMARK Zakir Bhai surges ahead in his mission to defame Islam by stating another peculiar reason: “If every human being was a vegetarian, it would lead to overpopulation of cattle in the world, since their reproduction and multiplication is very swift. Allah (swt) in His Divine Wisdom knows how to maintain the balance of His creation appropriately. No wonder He has permitted us to have the meat of the cattle.”

COMMENTS: 1. By now, one would have no doubts that Zakir Bhai, MBBS is merely cracking jokes on shoulders of Islam. 2. Despite his claims of MBBS, he seems to have no clues about natural ecological cycles that automatically takes care of overpopulation of certain breeds. 3. Most importantly, he conveniently ignores stating that there is already an overpopulation of cattle due to human demand for meat! Cattle are specifically reared for meat consumption who consume 4 times more resources than humans, and are way above natural limits as per ecological requirements. 4. Either Zakir Bhai, MBBS has given this argument because he did not read the material that he stole for his book, or he is on a mission to denigrate Islam. Because this again is a big argument in favor of vegetarianism, that meat-eaters cannot answer.

DR.NAIK’S REMARK He ends up this section with a silly joke: “I do not mind if some people are pure vegetarians. However they should not condemn non-vegetarians as ruthless. In fact if all Indians become non-vegetarians then the present non-vegetarians would be losers since the prices of meat would rise.” COMMENT: One cannot understand what he means by this statement. Is he defending vegetarians or non-vegetarians. The para is quite confusing, but one thing is clear – He is demeaning Islam in any case. Perhaps because being a Qadiyani, his vision of Islam is different from the more rational ones among Muslims. Zakir Bhai, MBBS missed certain other arguments in favor of vegetarianism namely: i. ii. iii. environmental conservation in raising vegetarian food compared to animal food resource optimization by minimizing food resources used to feed cattle reared to feed humans feeding more people through vegetarian food that can feed at least 10 times more people "NO COPYRIGHTS" AND "INTENDED FOR FREE CIRCULATION"

iv. v. plants can be regrown, animals cannot be the number of disease that non-veg foods make one vulnerable to etc. or You can visit any vegetarian site like ivu.org or PETA http://www.ethicalvegetarian.com/arguments.html etc for more on this.

As I emphasized, the purpose of this article was not to get into veg vs non-veg debate, but show how Zakir Bhai MBBS uses this as a ploy to demean Islam. I would however like to emphasize that Vedas, where Zakir Bhai sees the source of Prophet, strongly condemns any practice that is based on killing innocent creatures, degrading environment and wasting valuable resources.

DR.NAIK’S REMARK In next part of the article, he addresses the following issue: Islamic method of slaughtering animals appears ruthless (page 22) He explains the method and then provides following set of ridiculous arguments to justify it: a. It is more hygienic b. It keeps meat fresh for longer time c. Animals do not feel pain COMMENTS: Instead of putting my personal views, I would like to share that it is the progressive Muslims of today who are demanding ban on meat and especially the form of Halal meat that Zakir Bhai is recommending. They have provided ample material to prove that this is an extremely loathsome method in current context and goes against teachings of original Quran of Prophet Muhammad (and not Zakir Bhai). They deplore the fact that fake people like Dr Zakir Naik are claiming to be sole representatives of Islam and presenting a distorted Islam to world that makes lives of an average educated Muslim miserable. Here are certain points from http://www.islamveg.com/halalmeat.asp which is dedicated to promoting Vegetarian Islam. i. They quote from New Scientist, the premiere research journal on how Animals F eel the Pain of Muslim Slaughter: http://www.newscientist.com/article/dn17972-animalsfeel-the-pain-of-religious-slaughter.html?full=true&print=true They provide several reasons why so-called Halal meat is not actually Halal.

ii.

iii. They claim that “Vegetarian foods and ingredients, not counting alcohol, are halal by nature. Eating vegetarian is the best and easiest way to ensure that you are keeping halal.” I hope the Muslims misled by like of Zakir Bhai MBBS, would reject the fake Qadiyani, and embrace the rational approach of Vedas as welcomes by progressive Muslims. In Vedic approach, one does not kill innocent animals for taste-buds and hence the question of slaughter does not arise in first place.) The next topic he takes is NON-VEGETARIAN QUESTION: Science tell us that whatever one eats, it has an effect on one’s behaviour. Why then, does Islam allow Muslims to eat non-vegetarian food, since eating of animals could make a person violent and ferocious? ANSWER: Only eating of herbivorous animals allowed I agree that, what a person eats has an effect on his behaviour. This is one of the reasons why Islam prohibits the eating of carnivorous animals like lion, tiger, leopard, etc. who are violent and ferocious. The consumption of the meat of such animals would probably make a person violent and ferocious. Islam only allows the eating of herbivorous animals like cow, goat, sheep, etc. that are peaceful and docile. Muslims eat peaceful and docile animals because Muslims are peace loving and non-violent people.” FOOD MAKES MUSLIMS VIOLENT (Page 23)

WWW.AGNIVEER.COM

He then goes on to quote from Quran and Hadiths on the kind of meat that is haram and halal based on whether the animal is peaceful or violent. COMMENT: 1. Nothing could be more obvious can this concluding part of the topic of food, on true motives of Zakir Bhai, MBBS. He is simply writing all this to ridicule Islam on pretext of Veg-non-veg debate! 2. Let us analyze: First he admits that food has an impact on one’s behavior. Next, he says that Muslims are peaceful because they eat peaceful animals. By this logic, why are not carnivorous animals also considered peaceful? After all a carnivorous animal like lion, tiger or leopard also eats docile animals like Muslims. So either one considers lion, tiger etc also to be peaceful like Muslims or should consider Muslims to be violent and ferocious like carnivorous animals. 3. And if we consider carnivorous animals to be peaceful because they eat same food as Muslims, then Quran should not prohibit eating of

24

"NO COPYRIGHTS" AND "INTENDED FOR FREE CIRCULATION"

www.agniveer.com
carnivorous animals also. Because it is hence proved that even carnivorous animals are peaceful and Muslims are permitted to eat peaceful animals! 4. Going further, even eating of peaceful humans should be justified because eating peaceful humans will make one loving and non-violent! 5. Zakir Bhai is perhaps creating grounds for defense of terrorists who kill innocent people. He would thus argue in court, “These terrorists are peace loving and non-violent people because they kill peaceful and docile people!” Muslims, especially followers of Zakir Bhai, MBBS should introspect and decide if they can afford to allow fake scholars like him to continue to be representative of Islam. If yes, Muslims are bound to face ridicule and humiliation. If not, they should promote more progressive Muslim movements, who evaluate Islam more rationally. I was happy to listen to Abdullah Tariq, eminent Muslim scholar from Rampur who admits that true Islam is based on foundation of Vedas. I would welcome the rational and peace-loving Muslims to take this progress further and return back to the roots of Vedas, their original source.

regarding Islam are authentic and without malice. High Court had to use its special powers to bring the case to High Court for hearing. In second hearing, the Court dismissed the case warning the petitioners to not file such frivolous cases in future. This added to our notorious fame in eyes of the Zakir cohort. 7. Many ignorant disciples of Zakir Naik, unaware of our previous invitations, claimed that if we ever come to face Zakir Naik, we would be crushed like anything. Others said that Zakir Naik is too big a personality to accept challenges from every Tom, Dick and Harry. We humbly admitted to the size of our erstwhile personality and to check out how that crushing might appear, we issued another invitation in November 2008 on behalf of “Sarvadeshik Arya Pratinidhi Sabha” – the apex body of Arya Samaj. You can review a copy of the invitation letter at http://www.scribd.com/doc/8142696/Official-Challenge-to-Dr-Zakir-Naik-bySarvdeshik-Arya-Pratinidhi-Sabha8. There was an even greater silence from Zakir team after this. Because now, even Abdullah Tariq and Tariq Murtaza refused to come forward for another round of public discussions. They have now a standard stand “If you want to discuss something, let us meet close doors and personally. We shall not discuss these things in public.” Our team members spent most of 2009 debating select groups of Muslims, neoconverts and old timers. We held many face to face debates, debates on phone with their prominent leaders and then on internet forums. This was when we realized how strong their network is. They have even priests of temples in their gang. In western UP, we became quite popular in this circle. We thus received huge number of dawats (invitations) to embrace Islam which we countered with our dawats to come back home to Vedic Dharma. Many did indeed accept and 2009 was a fruitful year in terms of success of our Shuddhi (purification) movement to bring our family members back home. We also continued our debates on Zakir Naik and his tactics on internet forums like orkut and facebook. No surprise that we had turned even more notoriously popular in their circle by now. 9. Then sometime in July or August of 2009, Abdullah Tariq addressed Peace TV and declared that in 5 years, they would make India an Islamic State. This was the last straw to break everything. We replied him back with a counter-challenge that in 5 years, truth-seeking Muslims would escape from their grips of falsehood like sand. In August 2009, we sent another invitation to IRF to come up for a debate on behalf of Paropkarini Sabha – the apex intellectual body of Arya Samaj and caretaker of original Satyarth Prakash. We expected to receive no response as usual. So this time, we posted the invitation all across the web and email lists. You can view that simply by searching for “zakir naik paropkarini sabha” on google.

We also called them up and we came to know that Zakir Naik is busy in Dubai. After lot of efforts, we finally got a response from IRF asking us about what is the strength of crowd that we can pull. I have attached this letter with this article as a pdf along with my reply. In my reply, I invited IRF experts to be present at Rishi Mela between October 23 and October 25, 2009 where thousands of people and famed personalities are expected to be present. 10. That was the last ever communication we could make with IRF. Meanwhile the blabbering of Zakir Naik continued and I could see his messengers simply copy-pasting his writings to sway non-Muslims. We were thus left with no recourse but to prepare rebuttals to Zakir Naik’s demagoguery so as to prevent both Muslims and non-Muslims to fall in trap and develop completely wrong notions about Islam and Hinduism. Ever since then, Abdullah Tariq has even refused to take calls if they come from our phones. IRF is dead silent as usual. But the covert activities are going in full pace. Its obvious that Zakir Naik does not want to debate us publicly. At best, he would allow outsiders to ask a question to which he could reply by a one-liner and have his followers clap to their heart’s content. Or he would deliberately choose debaters who he knows are not trained in his covert methods. He refused written debate with Al Sina because written debates expose everything. He knows that his Qadiyani source of plagiarism is already exposed. And he knows that Arya Samaj has been a thorn in eyes of Muslim evangelists for last 125 years. He knows that this group is thoroughly well-versed with Quran, his ways and the blatant loopholes. He knows that to give a stage show among semi-literate blind followers scared of Hell is not same as debating with those whose history lies in Shuddhi movement. Yes, Zakir may have access to petrodollars and funds sourcing Osama Bin Laden. Yes, another bomb blasted in Pune killing innocents. True that Osama brand of terrorism ably supported by Zakir Naik continues. But Aurangzeb was scared of Shivaji despite his massive army and Ravan was scared of Ram despite he being Lankesh. After all, truth is more powerful than the strongest weapon.

DR.NAIK’S REMARK “The most Hinduism.” COMMENT: 1. Very smartly, he has started by sowing doubts that Aryan and Hinduism imply different things. Later he says that Hinduism is based on Vedas. 2. Can Dr Naik or his IRF Team name few other religions which are Aryan but not Hinduism? Can they prove that the word Arya did not originate from Vedas? The strategy was Divide and Rule by sowing seeds of differences among smaller groups) popular among the Aryan religions is

DR.NAIK’S REMARK ‘ Hindu’ is actually a Persian word that stands for the inhabitants of the region beyond the Indus Valley. However, in common parlance, Hinduism is a blanket term for an assortment of religious beliefs, most of which are (which is) based on the Vedas, the Upanishads and the Bhagavad Gita. “(as final authority and Upanishads and Geeta as other guiding texts) COMMENT:

WWW.AGNIVEER.COM

Even Upanishads and Mahabharat claim Vedas to be the Supreme authority and clearly state that all other texts including Purans are to be interpreted in lines with Vedas. This is important because, what IRF will do is to twist and try to manipulate the meaning of verses to suit their own agenda of proving Muhammad left, right and center!)

DR.NAIK’S REMARK “II INTRODUCTION TO HINDU SCRIPTURES. There are several sacred scriptures of the Hindus. Among these are the Vedas, Upanishads and the Puranas. VEDAS: 1. The word Veda is derived from vid which means to know, knowledge par excellence or sacred wisdom. There are four principal divisions of the

www.agniveer.com
Vedas” (although according to their number, they amount to 1131 out of which about a dozen are available) COMMENT: 1. This sentence was deliberately put to prove that complete Vedas are not available and hence Hindus should accept Quran as full and final message of God. 2. But the fact is that there are only 4 Vedas and ALL are available in exactly same format as they were first given. 3. The 1131 number of branches being referred is those of explanations/ variants of original Veda Samhitas. The original still remain intact without change of even a single pronunciation or pitch) .

DR.NAIK’S REMARK “According to Maha Bhashya of Patanjali, there are 21 branches of Rigveda, 9 types of Atharvaveda, 101 branches of Yajurveda and 1000 of Samveda). 2. The Rigveda, the Yajurveda and the Samveda are considered to be more ancient books and are known as Trai Viddya or the ‘Triple Sciences’. The Rigveda is the oldest and has been compiled in three long and different periods of time. The 4th Veda is the Atharvaveda, which is of a later date. ”

WWW.AGNIVEER.COM

COMMENT: 1. All Vedas are considered to be of same age. They were revealed at inception of human civilization. There is no proof whatsoever to conclude that Vedas were written over a long period of time and some Vedas are older, some of later date. 2. Dr Naik has brought forth the baseless conjecture of western indologists and communists to suit his own agenda. 3. Fact remains that there is not one single evidence to support his hypothesis except that it suits the agenda of invaders to prove that even Aryans were invaders and Vedas are not revealed. 4. Dr Naik has been openly challenged officially to come for a debate on this, but he prefers to remain in hiding.)

DR.NAIK’S REMARK

“3. There is no unanimous opinion regarding the date of compilation or revelation of the four Vedas. According to Swami Dayanand, founder of the Arya Samaj, the Vedas were revealed 1310 million years ago” (1.97 billion years ago) COMMENT: 1. This is not Dayanand’s calculation but as given in Manu Smriti and Surya Siddhanta and accepted by most traditional scholars irrespective of their philosophical beliefs. 2. Modern science cannot refute this estimate and admits that this is near to their estimates of evolution of life on earth. 3. Swami Dayanand was specifically mentioned to emphasize that he gave such ridiculously large number as age of Vedas. 4. This is because Arya Samaj and Swami Dayanand have been the strongest critics of Islam for last 125 years, starting Shuddhi or reconversion movement to come back to Vedic Dharma and a prime force to combat Islamic Jehad. Even today, Dr Naik and his IRF is scared of facing Arya Samaj directly, despite several official challenges for debate.)

DR.NAIK’S REMARK “According to other scholars, they are not more than 4000 years old.” COMMENT: 1. These other scholars are none other than Christian indologists and their followers who have not one single proof to support their claim except that they believe Biblical genesis to happen few thousand years ago! 2. Again this is emphasized to prove Hindus that Vedas may not be as important as they believe, and that Quran is most perfect voice of God. 3. The fact is that Vedas are the only texts in world to have oral traditions running till date and a mechanism to ensure that not even a single syllable or pronunciation can be altered through 10 different Paath Vidhis. Refer this article - http://www.satyavidya.org/mustread/unchangeable-vedas 4. On contrary, Quran was written 20 years after death of Muhammad by those who were fighting against each other and killing each other to prove Islam to be a religion of Peace. 5. A large number of sects of Islam refuse to accept Quran to be perfect or even Muhammad to be final Prophet. Many have thus also developed new

Qurans and new Prophets. Click this link to refer to this list for 73 divisions of Islam since its inception http://www.realislam.org/73_8.htm. Further Islamic hadiths say that only one of them is true and rest will go to Hell! I am not sure where Dr Naik will go!)

DR.NAIK’S REMARK “4. Similarly, there are differing opinions regarding the places where these books were compiled and the Rishis to whom these Scriptures were given. Inspite of these differences, the Vedas are considered to be the most authentic of the Hindu Scriptures and the real foundations of the Hindu Dharma.” COMMENT: 1. The first part of the sentence was put to emphasize that Hindu Dharma is on a very shaky foundation, and thus justifying his appeal to come to Islam. But truth is that these differing opinions come from foreign intellectuals and communists alone who have their own agendas. 2. And most importantly, they cannot cite one single evidence in support of this claim except names of certain places in Vedas. And this amounts to saying that Mahabharat has been written in last 10 years because it contains words like Lal, Krishna, Atal, Vihari, Rahul, Arjun, Manmohan, Rajiv, Laal, Prasad and even Naik!

3. UPANISHADS:
DR.NAIK’S REMARK 1. The word ‘Upanishad’ is derived from Upa meaning near, Ni which means down and Shad means to sit. Therefore ‘Upanishad’ means sitting down near. Groups of pupils sit near the teacher to learn from him the secret doctrines. According to Samkara, ‘Upanishad’ is derived from the root word Sad which means ‘to loosen’, ‘to reach’ or ‘to destroy’, with Upa and ni as prefix; therefore ‘Upanishad’ means Brahma-Knowledge by which ignorance is loosened or destroyed. 2. The number of Upanishads exceeds 200 though the Indian tradition puts it at 108.There are 10 principal Upanishads. However, some consider them to be more than 10, while others 18. ”

WWW.AGNIVEER.COM

34

"NO COPYRIGHTS" AND "INTENDED FOR FREE CIRCULATION"

www.agniveer.com
COMMENT: Again the same ploy to seed doubts over authenticity of our beliefs. Fact is that there are 10 Upanishads considered important, but even these are accepted to be authentic so far they agree with Vedas. This is because only Vedas have a mechanism that ensures they cannot be altered, and all knowledge started from Vedas.)

DR.NAIK’S REMARK 3. The Vedanta meant originally the Upanishads, though the word is now used for the system of philosophy based on the Upanishad. Literally, Vedanta means the end of the Veda, Vedasua-antah, and the conclusion as well as the goal of Vedas. The Upanishads are the concluding portion of the Vedas and chronologically they come at the end of the Vedic period. 4. Some Pundits consider the Upanishads to be more superior to the Vedas. COMMENT: These must be Dr Naik’s gang of Pandits. Otherwise, even Upanishads declare that Vedas are final authority. This forms the foundation of Sanatan Dharma which needs to shaken to get more converts to IRF brand of Islam!)

“3. PURANAS: DR.NAIK’S REMARK Next in order of authenticity are the Puranas which are the most widely read scriptures. It is believed that the Puranas contain the history of the creation of the universe, history of the early Aryan tribes, life stories of the divines and deities of the Hindus. It is also believed that the Puranas are revealed books like the Vedas, which were revealed simultaneously with the Vedas or sometime close to it.” COMMENT: 1. Very smartly he has inserted ‘tribe’ with Aryan to demean it. Truth is that if one reads through Hadiths, he would realize what a tribe actually means! 2. No one considers Puranas to be either revealed like Vedas or as old as Vedas. Puranas themselves repeat innumerable times that Vedas are

WWW.AGNIVEER.COM

35

"NO COPYRIGHTS" AND "INTENDED FOR FREE CIRCULATION"

www.agniveer.com
ultimate authority and revelation of God, and Puranas are to be interpreted only as per Vedas. 3. Further, most scholars agree that Puranas contain significant adulterations and/or misinterpretations. That is why, in matters of moral conduct, Puranas are not considered to be the benchmark for Hindu society. And that is why, despite stories of Radha-Krishna, the norm of Hindu society is to emphasize self-control and Brahmacharya in youth. These stories are either rejected by certain scholars or reinterpreted to mean something mystical. But no one takes stories of Puranas literally – this is an important aspect of Hindu Dharma. 4. The reason why Dr Naik wants to emphasize on Puranas being revealed is obvious – He wants to prove Muhammad in Puranas later. But if you read my article on Prophet in Bhavishya Puran, you would realize that it means Muhammad was a demon, ghost and a great nuisance! This may be 74th sect of Islam that would go to Heaven!)

DR.NAIK’S REMARK “Maharishi Vyasa has divided the Puranas into 18 voluminous parts. He also arranged the Vedas under various heads. Chief among the Puranas is a book known as Bhavishya Purana. It is called so because it is believed to give an account of future events. The Hindus consider it to be the word of God. Maharishi Vyasa is considered to be just the compiler of the book.” COMMENT:

WWW.AGNIVEER.COM

1. This crazy hypothesis was put to prove Muhammad – the ghost and demon – in Bhavishya Puran later! 2. But neither do Hindus take Bhavishya Puran seriously nor does it predict anything. It is a forged Purana that continued to be written till late 19th century. Apart from Muhammad – the ghost and demon, it also contains stories of Shivaji, Aurangzeb, Mughals, Queen Victoria, her Parliament etc etc. This is the least authentic book of Hinduism and contains lots of stories with questionable authenticity. 3. Most people have not even heard of this Purana, and none consider this important for any religious activity or reading. Far from a word of God, it is considered fake by most. 4. The only word of God Hindus believe in are the Vedas. And Dr Naik should be thankful for this, because Bhavishya Puran calls Muhammad a demon, a ghost and a nuisance!)

4. ITIHAAS: 36
"NO COPYRIGHTS" AND "INTENDED FOR FREE CIRCULATION"

www.agniveer.com
DR.NAIK’S REMARK The two epics of Hinduism are the Ramayana and the Mahabharata. A. Ramayana: According to Ramanuja, the great scholar of Ramayana, there are more than 300 different types of Ramayana: Tulsidas Ramayana, Kumbha Ramayana. Though the outline of Ramayana is same, the details and contents differ. ” COMMENT: 1. Ramanuj was a communist who insulted Ramayana characters by bringing insulting descriptions from different folklores, most known only to him. The daughter of Manmohan Singh, our PM, introduced his chapter in Delhi University. That caused a big uproar and the matter went to Supreme Court. It is still being contested but the chapter has been withdrawn by Delhi University because the Dean got thrashed for defending this insult of Ramayan characters.! 2. Suddenly, this Ramanuj, who is unknown to all except communists, becomes ‘great’ for Dr Naik for obvious reasons. 3. All consider only Valmiki Ramayan to be authentic. Further, even in Valmiki Ramayan, all verses are not considered authentic and many seem to have entered later. Thus, scholars conclude that episodes like Sita’s Agni Pariksha and entire Uttar Ramayan that contains stories like Sita’s exile and Shambook’s death are later era figments of imagination having nothing to do with original Ramayan. We shall review this in a separate research.)

WWW.AGNIVEER.COM

DR.NAIK’S REMARK “Valmiki’s Ramayana: Unlike the Mahabharata, the Ramayana appears to be the work of one person – the sage Valmiki, who probably composed it in the 3rd century BC. COMMENT: There is no evidence to date Ramayan to 3rd BC except tales of communist historians! Valmiki is mentioned in several works which are dated much before that!) DR.NAIK’S REMARK Its best-known recension (by Tulsi Das, 1532-1623) consists of 24,000 rhymed couplets of 16-syllable lines organised into 7 books. The poem

37

incorporates many ancient legends and draws on the sacred books of the Vedas. It describes the efforts of Kosala’s heir, Rama, to regain his throne and rescue his wife, Sita, from the demon King of Lanka. Valmiki’s Ramayana is a Hindu epic tradition whose earliest literary version is a Sanskrit poem attributed to the sage Valmiki. Its principal characters are said to present ideal models of personal, familial, and social behavior and hence are considered to exemplify Dharma, the principle of moral order.” COMMENT: At last! finally so many lines without significant blunders!

DR.NAIK’S REMARK “B. Mahabharata: The nucleus of the Mahabharata is the war of eighteen days fought between the Kauravas, the hundred sons of Dhritarashtra and Pandavas, the five sons of Pandu. The epic entails all the circumstances leading upto the war. Involved in this Kurukshetra battle were almost all the kings of India world joining either of the two parties. The result of this war was the total annihilation of Kauravas and their party. Yudhishthira, the head of the Pandavas, became the sovereign monarch of Hastinapura. His victory is supposed to symbolise the victory of good over evil. But with the progress of years, new matters and episodes relating to the various aspects of human life, social, economic, political, moral and religious as also fragments of other heroic legends came to be added to the aforesaid nucleus and this phenomenon continued for centuries until it acquired the present shape. The Mahabharata represents a whole literature rather than one single and unified work, and contains many multifarious things. C. Bhagavad Gita: Bhagavad Gita is a part of Mahabharata. It is the advice given by Krishna to Arjun on the battlefield of Kurukshetra. It contains the essence of the Vedas and is the most popular of all the Hindu Scriptures. It contains 18 chapters. The Bhagavad Gita is one of the most widely read and revered of the works sacred to the Hindus. It is their chief devotional book, and has been for centuries the principal source of religious inspiration for many thousands of Hindus.

The Gita is a dramatic poem, which forms a small part of the larger epic, the Mahabharata. It is included in the sixth book (Bhismaparvan) of the Mahabaharata and documents one tiny event in a huge epic tale. The Bhagavad Gita tells a story of a moral crisis faced by Arjuna, which is solved through the interaction between Arjuna, a Pandava warrior hesitating before battle, and Krishna, his charioteer and teacher. The Bhagavad Gita relates a brief incident in the main story of a rivalry and eventually a war between two branches of a royal family. In that brief incident – a pause on the battlefield just as the battle is about to begin – Krishna, one chief on one side (also believed to be the Lord incarnate), is presented as responding to the doubts of Arjuna. The poem is the dialogue through which Arjuna’s doubts were resolved by Krishna’s teachings.” COMMENT: As a smart covert hypnotist, Dr Naik ends up the article without seeding further doubts so that it all appears unbiased and normal. This also gives time to plant the ideas that he has previously introduced subtly: a. Aryans were tribals b. Authenticity of Vedas, the primary texts of Hindu Dharma, are questionable c. Vedas are not as old as they are assumed to be d. Swami Dayanand and Arya Samaj make ridiculous assumptions about Vedas e. Bhavishya Puran is most important text of Hindu Dharma f. Other texts apart from Vedas are also considered equally authentic g. Ramayan and Ram may not be authentic Now these subtle suggestions are to serve his future agenda, as also obvious in his research on Prophet in Hindu Scriptures!) This is nothing but a variant of a technique permitted in some schools of Islam which allows you to use deceit and confusion to defeat the enemy. But I hope everyone shall accept truth and truth alone! Because a little poison is a dangerous thing!

some Hindus believe in the existence of three gods, some believe in thousands of gods, and some others in thirty three crore i.e. 330 million Gods. However, learned Hindus, who are well versed in their scriptures, insist that a Hindu should believe in and worship only one God. COMMENT: 1. English has only word God to mean All-mighty Omnipotent whom Hindus call Ishwar and other human-like creatures who act smart – like one who sends Angels, gets angry, sits on a throne or creates Heaven and Hell. 2. In Hinduism, the word to describe All-mighty Omnipotent is Ishwar. Thus Ishwar = God. But writers take God to mean Devata. Now Devata does not mean Ishwar. Devata means any entity – living or dead that gives us anything or benefits us. In English, I would call Devata to mean “Helper”. 3. While Vedas believe in one single Ishwar and 33 types of non-living Helper Devatas, even the average Hindu does not consider these Helper devatas to be Ishwar. 4. Thus Hinduism is essentially monotheistic and Quran has derived its concept of monotheism basically from Vedas 5. The three Gods are symbolic description of 3 functions of Ishwar – Creation, Maintenance and Destruction. Different Hindu sects may differ with regards to the importance one should be attaching to these various symbols or importance of Helper-Devatas, but all unanimously agree that there is one and only one Ishwar/God. Dr Naik has no new USP of Islam to sell here)

WWW.AGNIVEER.COM

DR.NAIK’S REMARK “The major difference between the Hindu and the Muslim perception of God is the common Hindus’ belief in the philosophy of Pantheism. Pantheism considers everything, living and non-living, to be Divine and Sacred. The common Hindu, therefore, considers everything as God. He considers the trees as God, the sun as God, the moon as God, the monkey as God, the snake as God and even human beings as manifestations of God!” COMMENT: 1. Dr Naik speaks this sentence with a slight smirk in his face in his video shows so that the audience feels humorous. But either he is mistaken or deliberately acting humorous.

2. Because Hinduism basically represents a school of thought believing in Law of Karma. The rest of the details are left to individual interpretation. All Hindus do consider functioning of each object – living or dead – as a gift of God, but they DO NOT consider the tree, sun, moon, monkey, snake, human as same as God/Ishwar. 3. Even the Advait believers, also admit that even if these things are considered to have origin in Ishwar or Brahma, currently there is a layer of ignorance or Maya separating them. 4. For rest of Hindus, they worship these objects, to show their thankfulness to Ishwar/ God to have created and gifted such wonderful things! Different sects do take this thankfulness to different levels, but none would consider everything to be God in present state, as IRF foolishly believes or wants the world to believe. Thus the crux of this article and its prime agenda become outrightly baseless. 5. The problem is that the Islam which Dr Zakir Naik wants all Hindus to embrace does not have any philosophy or need for subtle thinking that demands finesse of mind and intellect. It would want us to believe that polygamy is right because there are more women in USA than men (Although there are far less women than men in marriageable age!). Or that had Islam been brutal in India, why would there be only 15% Muslim in India after so many centuries of rule? (And he would conveniently ignore 33 crore Muslims in Bangladesh and Pakistan which were originally part of India. Not to talk of Afghanistan! But we need to beware of designs of those who openly support Bin Laden and ban on other religions in Muslim countries or have a vision to make India a Muslim country in 5 years!)

WWW.AGNIVEER.COM

DR.NAIK’S REMARK “Islam, on the contrary, exhorts man to consider himself and his surroundings as examples of Divine Creation rather than as divinity itself. Muslims therefore believe that everything is God’s i.e. the word ‘God’ with an apostrophe ‘s’. In other words the Muslims believe that everything belongs to God. The trees belong to God, the sun belongs to God, the moon belongs to God, the monkey belongs to God, the snake belongs to God, the human beings belong to God and everything in this universe belongs to God. Thus the major difference between the Hindu and the Muslim beliefs is the difference of the apostrophe ‘s’. The Hindu says everything is God. The Muslim says everything is God’s.”

COMMENT: 1. As mentioned before the analogy of apostrophe ’s’ is good for stage shows but is actually baseless. The major difference between the Hindu and the Muslim belief or Dr Zakir Naik is that Hindus believe in freedom of thought and analysis and do not curse anyone to Hell permanently. Or contrary, Dr Naik’s Islam would demand not only belief in God, but also belief in following: a. Muhammad as final Prophet b. Quran as final and only acceptable word of God beyond any doubts or questions c. Permanent Hell for those who refuse to believe in above and Heaven only for the rest d. Existence of angels like one who came to Muhammad to narrate him the Quran, that was compiled 20 years after Muhammad’s murder/death, by his followers who were fighting like beasts to kill each other. 2. Incidentally, Islam is not as uniform in its belief as Dr Naik wants us to believe. There is a Hadith of Muhammad’s times that Islam has 73 sects and Prophet has said that only one of them will go to Heaven and rest will go to Hell. Today, some sects have written their own new Quran as well! Many of the sects doubt authenticity of present Quran. Here is a sampler: a. Hashamiya – They believe that Prophet disobeyed Allah b. Azraqiah – They do not believe that revelations happen any more

WWW.AGNIVEER.COM

c. Nazzamiyah – They refuse to believe in miracles of Quran or Muhammad d. Ibriyah – They refuse to accept Muhammad as Prophet e. Tanasikhiya – They believe in reincarnation of soul as Hindus - http://www.realYou can read the complete list here islam.org/73_8.htm Many other sects of Islam also exist who have their own Qurans and Prophets. Search Wikipedia or google on “sects of Islam”)

The rest of the article only emphasizes the point that Hindus already know. In the end, Dr Naik adds a para claiming that Vedas call Muhammad the Prophet.

DR.NAIK’S REMARK “The Prophecy confirms: 1. The name of the Prophet as Ahmed since Ahmed is an Arabic name. Many translators misunderstood it to be ‘Ahm at hi’ and translated the mantra as “I alone have acquired the real wisdom of my father”. 2. Prophet was given eternal law, i.e. the Shariah. 3. The Rishi was enlightened by the Shariah of Prophet Muhammad. The Qur’an says in Surah Saba Chapter 34 verse 28 (34:28): “We have not sent thee but as a universal (Messenger) to men, giving them glad tidings and warning them (against sin), but most men understand not.” COMMENT: 1. An analysis of this foolish claim can http://agniveer.com/featured/prophet-vedas/ be found at -

2. If Allah himself says that most men will not understand, then it is fault of Allah and not of men that their lack of understanding was already predecided by Allah!) I hope, after reading these articles, Dr Naik and IRF would go into an introspection and would be honest enough to embrace their original roots – the Vedas.

‘I don’t know’. But many children nowadays will not be satisfied with this answer. If this answer was given to my son, he would say “Abba (father), why don’t you know?’ This will compel you to do your homework and thus educate yourself as well as your child.” COMMENT: 1. While I agree that children should not be misled, this is a disease that came only after advent of foreigners. Before that most people used to be in gurukuls and used to learn sciences systematically. 2. But if in Islam, they do not believe in telling a white lie or giving wrong answer, Dr Naik should either re-read the very books he wants to establish as final version of God’s message, or admit that he himself has committed a sin by lying in this article, or admit that Allah himself lies. I shall now provide excerpts from Islamic texts on how they explain various phenomena.

A. WHAT IS PLAGUE?
Bukhari Volume 8, Book 77, Number 616: Narrated ‘Aisha : I asked Allah’s Apostle about the plague. He said, “That was a means of torture which Allah used to send upon whom-so-ever He wished, but He made it a source of mercy for the believers, for anyone who is residing in a town in which this disease is present, and remains there and does not leave that town, but has patience and hopes for Allah’s reward, and knows that nothing will befall him except what Allah has written for him, then he will get such reward as that of a martyr.” Bukhari Volume 7, Book 71, Number 628: Narrated Anas bin Malik: Allah’s Apostle said, “(Death from) plague is martyrdom for every Muslim.” Bukhari Volume 7, Book 71, Number 629: Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, “He (a Muslim) who dies of an abdominal disease is a a martyr, and he who dies of plague is a martyr.” Thus plague is a torture that makes you martyr!

B. HOW TO TREAT ONE FROM FLIES?
Pharmacies can sell the fly wings which has cure. Bukhari Volume 7, Book 71, Number 673 : Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s Apostle said, “If a fly falls in the vessel of any of you, let him dip all of it (into the vessel) and then throw it away, for in one of its wings there is a disease and in the other there is healing (antidote for it) i e. the treatment for that disease.”

C. FATE WRITTEN IN WOMB ALREADY!
Bukhari Volume 1, Book 6, Number 315: Narrated Anas bin Malik: The Prophet said, “At every womb Allah appoints an angel who says, ‘O Lord! A drop of semen, O Lord! A clot. O Lord! A little lump of flesh.” Then if Allah wishes (to complete) its creation, the angel asks, (O Lord!) Will it be a male or female, a wretched or a blessed, and how much will his provision be? And what will his age be?’ So all that is written while the child is still in the mother’s womb.” Bukhari Volume 4, Book 54, Number 430: Narrated ‘Abdullah bin Mus’ud: Allah’s Apostle, said, ” a human being is put together in the womb of the mother inforty days, and then he becomes a clot of thick blood for a similar period, and then a piece of flesh for a similar period. Then Allah sends an angel who is ordered to write four things. He is ordered to write down his (i.e. the new creature’s) deeds, his livelihood, his (date of) death, and whether he will be blessed or wretched (in religion). Then the soul is breathed into him..”

D. SNAKE AND PREGNANCY
Bukhari Volume 4, Book 54, Number 527: Narrated ‘Aisha: The Prophet said, “Kill the snake with two white lines on its back, for it blinds the on-looker and causes abortion.” Bukhari Volume 4, Book 54, Number 528: Narrated ‘Aisha: The Prophet ordered that a short-tailed or mutilated-tailed snake (i.e. Abtar) should be killed, for it blinds the on-looker and causes abortion.” Volume 4, Book 54, Number 529: Narrated Abu Mulaika: Prophet said, ‘Do not kill snakes except the short-tailed or mutilatedtailed snake with two white lines on its back, for it causes abortion and makes one blind. So kill it.’

WWW.AGNIVEER.COM

E. HOW TO KNOW LOOKS OF BABY?
Bukhari:V4B55N546 “Allah’s Apostle said, ‘Gabriel has just now told me of the answer. If a man has sexual intercourse with his wife and gets discharge first, the child will resemble him, and if the woman gets discharge first, the child will resemble her.’”

F. WHY BABIES CRY?
Bukhari Volume 4, Book 54, Number 506: Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, “When any human being is born. Satan touches him at both sides of the body with his two fingers, except Jesus, the son of Mary, whom Satan tried to touch but failed, for he touched the placenta-cover instead.”

G. SPIT IS HYGEINIC
Bukhari Volume 1, Book 4, Number 188: Narrated Ibn Shihab: Mahmud bin Ar-Rabi’ who was the person on whose face the Prophet had ejected a mouthful of water from his family’s well while he was a boy, and ‘Urwa (on the authority of Al-Miswar and others) who testified each other, said, “Whenever the Prophet , performed ablution, his companions were nearly fighting for the remains of the water.” You can review some more superstitions of islamic science by clicking this - http://www.islam-watch.org/SyedKamranMirza/Superstition.htm The limited point to made by these examples is that Islam of Dr Naik is not as truthful or scientific as he would want us to believe. And as far as truth is concerned, Truth is considered the foremost virtue in Hinduism – be it any sect or school of thought. Hindus also do not have the concept of Taqiah as in Islam, which permits one to spread false in certain situations like destroying an enemy.)

DR.NAIK’S REMARK “Hinduism is not the oldest of all the religions. It is Islam which is the first and the oldest of all religions. People have a misconception that Islam is 1400 years old and that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is the founder of this religion. Islam existed since time immemorial, ever since man first set foot on this earth. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was not the founder of Islam. He was the last and final Messenger of Almighty God.” COMMENT:

WWW.AGNIVEER.COM

Any proofs for this? Do we have any literature of Islam prior to Quran? Is there anything before ths Vedas? Are there proofs to conclude that Muhammad was a messenger in first place, forget the case of his being last? Except what Muhammad is alleged to say in a Quran that even many Muslims refuse to accept as authentic, and was written 20 years after Muhammad’s death by his followers who were killing each other to prove Islam to be a religion of Peace!

DR.NAIK’S REMARK “For any religion to be pure and authentic, its scriptures should not contain any interpolation, addition, deletion or revision. Moreover the religion’s source of inspiration and direction should be Almighty God. The Qur’an is the only religious scripture on the face of the earth which has been maintained it its original form. All the other religious scriptures, of all the other religions have interpolations, additions, deletions or revisions. The Qur’an has been in the

memory of a multitude of people, intact in its original form ever since its revelation, and now there are hundreds of thousands of people who have preserved it in their memory. Moreover, if you compare the copies made by Caliph Uthman from the original Qur’an which is yet present in the museum in Tashkent and in Koptaki museum in Turkey, they are the same as the ones we possess today.” COMMENT: 1. I agree with the first two sentences. But rest is hoax. No text apart from Vedas can claim freedom from any scope of interpolations. This is not merely based on memory of people who mugged it, but also by a mechanism of 10 different ways of reciting it, which exactly match even today. The gurukuls teaching these Paatha vidhis are thriving till today. Even the Christian indologists who studied Vedas thoroughly, could not cite one single evidence to claim any kind of interpolation in Vedas. For on this, please read Unchangeable Vedas at more http://www.satyavidya.org/must-read/unchangeable-vedas 2. No all sects of Islam believe Quran to be authentic. Many have even written their own Qurans. Some believe that original Quran was mutilated. Others believe that some verses in Quran are written by Satan who came in Muhammad once and narrated a few Ayats. 3. When was the original Quran made? Much after death of Muhammad. Further Quran did not reveal in one go. It was revealed throughout the life of Muhammad. And for first fifteen years, Muhammad had no resources to even write the Quran. Even the Ayat 2.106 of Quran itself admits that not everything can be remembered. Even the Arabic script was not developed that time and no Quran of Muhammad’s time exists. 4. Quran is supposed to be written by Muhammad’s followers after his death. Now these followers were killing each other for power, and included his beloved wife Aisha, whom he had married when she was 6 years old, and in whose company most Ayats were revealed. Many Muslims refuse to respect Aisha as an authentic person. How can one consider such people to have had capability to transmit Allah’s message of Peace without distortions? 5. Read this article for more details on the Authenticity of Quran http://www.islam-watch.org/iwnew/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=70:quran-hadithwhich-is-more-authentic&catid=68:mumin&Itemid=58)

DR.NAIK’S REMARK “A religion is best, if it has the solutions to the problems of mankind. For a religion to be considered the best, it should have the solution to all the problems of mankind.

"NO COPYRIGHTS" AND "INTENDED FOR FREE CIRCULATION"

www.agniveer.com
It should be the religion of truth, and should be applicable to all ages. Islam is the only religion which has the solution to all the problems of mankind. e.g. the problem of alcoholism, surplus women, rape and molestation, robbery, racism, casteism, etc. Islam is the religion of truth, and its laws and solutions are applicable to all the ages. The Qur’an is the only religious book on the face of the earth, which has maintained its purity and authenticity proving itself to be the word of God in all the ages. i.e. previously, when it was the age of miracles, literature and poetry and in present times when it is the age of science and technology. Moreover, Islam is not a man-made religion, but a religion revealed and inspired by Almighty God. It is the only religion acceptable in His Sight.” COMMENT: 1. I thought this was a FAQ on Hinduism. Anyways, before making such far-fetched claims, Dr Naik should decide which of the 73 sects of Islam is actually true Islam. Because rest will go to Hell as per Islamic hadiths. Refer 73 Sects of Islam and One True Jamaat at http://www.google.co.in/url?sa=t&source=web&ct=res&cd=1&ved=0CAs QFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.real-islam.org%2F73_8.htm&ei=jM7S7z6Fs6LkAWckPT3CA&usg=AFQjCNEcA8T6LqLS2cuXYoFDdOmvyv y-ow&sig2=vfH_A5hMrPbWKm-2QPgCYQ 2. Also he should explain why Islam was revealed in a language which was neither the most popular language of world when Quran came, nor is it so today, nor it has been ever. In fact when Quran was revealed, even the script was not yet standardized and Muhammad had no resources to even document the Quran. The claim of authenticity is already debunked. Also why is it that any reference to the faith of more than 50% of population of world – Eastern philosophies not even referred to? 3. Can he cite one single country that follows version of Islam that Dr Naik wants us to believe as true islam, and then assess whether indeed Islam has solutions or not? Because all Islamic countries have an adverse gender ratio, non-tolerance for other faiths, issues of human rights etc. Science of islam has already been explored to some extent. 4. How does Dr Naik know that Islam is the only religion acceptable to God? If that be so, why could not God give Quran in a less confusing and more systematic manner than giving it to someone in bits and pieces throughout his poverty and then war-torn life, where it could not be even documented? And does not completely debar evils like marriage in closefamily, marriage with small babies, slavery, polygamy etc which are proven to be disastrous from social and medical standpoint? Also the language was among least popular of world, and also not original language of world. I can well understand Quran to be a step towards

progress of barbaric Arabic society. But can Dr Naik provide evidences to prove it final version of Allah’s message for all ages to come? (When even many sects of Islam refuse to believe so!)

DR.NAIK’S REMARK “The land used for burying a dead body can be reutilised for burying another body after a few years since the human body gets decomposed and mixed in the soil.” COMMENT: If that be so, why do Muslims create a permanent structure around the burial? Why do they constuct Kabras, Makbaras and memorials on places of death that remain unused for ages to come? The fact is that practice of burial permanently wastes land space. The practice of cremation ensures that neither does decaying body spread disease nor it occupies further place.)

DR.NAIK’S REMARK “Wearing a bindi or mangalsutra is a sign of Hindu women. The Islamic dress code does not permit a Muslim to wear any sign, symbol or mark which is specially significant of a non-Muslim.”

WWW.AGNIVEER.COM

COMMENT: Bindi or Mangalsutra is not a necessary sign for all Hindu women. It is of much recent origin and is not mentioned in ancient texts of rituals. It became famous as an aesthetic concept later. In fact it became more popular because of Islamic invasions. The evils of Purdah system and Sati also started from times when Muslim invaders would kill men and rape women. Even today, plight of Hindus in Bangladesh is well known. Thus Bindi and Mangalsutra became signs of married women to at least spare them from torment of invaders. As far as Islamic dress code is concerned, that has been medically proven to cause Vitamin D deficiency in women of Muslim countries due to emphasis on covering all parts of body and staying indoors. Please refer to one of at the several such medical research reports by clicking http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12149082).

DR.NAIK’S REMARK “Islamic Criminal Law is Most Practical” The Muslims in India alone cannot separately follow the Islamic Criminal Law without involving the NonMuslims… Islam besides pointing out a crime, it also gives you a solution showing how to prevent the crime e.g. chopping the hands of a robber, death penalty for the rapist. The punishment is so severe that it is a deterrent for the criminal to commit the crime. He will think a hundred times before committing a crime. Thus if crime has to be reduced or stopped in India the best solution is to implement ‘The Common Islamic Criminal Law’.” COMMENT: 1. Any student of Law and Social studies would know how practical are the Islamic laws, especially those relating to slavery and women rights. 2. Dr Naik has deliberately chosen to highlight those aspects of Islamic law which may not cause that much dispute. Let him answer why even most Muslim countries refuse to implement Islamic Criminal law? 3. Would Dr Naik agree to have Islamic Criminal Law implemented when both the parties involved are Muslims? Forget about actual implementation, would he himself and IRF agree to punish themselves as per Islamic Criminal Law by their own choice? If that be so, a large number of lies stated by them have been exposed. Would they agree to punish themselves by chopping their hands off or other punishments for telling lies to public at large? 4. Islamic Law has been stated to be most practical. Could Dr Naik suggest what is so practical about stating that (evidence of two women = evidence of one man)? 5. Could he suggest what makes it so practical for a divorced couple to reunite without the wife having intercourse with another person and then taking Talaq from him? 6. Could he also enlighten what makes Islamic Law so practical that a rape victim will have to provide one male or two female eye-witnesses who have seen the act of organs by their own eyes. It sounds disgusting, but that is what Islamic Criminal Law states. Circumstantial evidences and testing do not count in case of rape! 7. Could he also guide why it is practical for a father to marry her baby-girl as per his wishes and it is legal to have relations if girl is above 9 years?

DR.NAIK’S REMARK “Which prophet was sent to India? Regarding the question of which prophet of God was sent to India, and can we consider Ram or Krishna to be prophets of God, there is no text in the Qur’an or Sahih Hadith mentioning the name of the prophet that was sent to India. Since the names of Ram and Krishna are nowhere to be found in the Qur’an and Sahih Hadith, one cannot say for sure whether they were prophets of God or not. Some Muslims, especially certain Muslim politicians who try to appease the Hindus, say Ram Alai-his-salaam, i.e. Ram, may peace be on him. This is totally wrong, since there is no authentic proof from the Qur’an and Sahih Hadith that he was a prophet of God. However, a person may say that perhaps they may have been the prophets of God. Even if Ram and Krishna were prophets, today we have to follow the last Prophet of God i.e. Muhammad (pbuh) Even if Ram and Krishna were prophets of God, they were only meant for people of that time and were to be followed only for that particular period of time. Today, all the human beings throughout the world, including India should only follow the last and final prophet and Messenger of God – prophet Muhammad (pbuh).”

WWW.AGNIVEER.COM

COMMENT: 1. No text in Quran mentions Ram and Krishna because Muhammad was too ignorant of the traditions of the East in same way as Europe was ignorant of America before Columbus. Or else how could Allah have forgotten to mention about beliefs of more than 50% of world population then? 2. This is religious fundamentalism at peak. Only Prophet Muhammad is final Prophet and if you do not believe so you will burn in Hell forever! And if you believe, you will get 72 virgins and lot of fun in Paradise forever! But as I proved earlier, out of 73 sects of Islam, only one will reach Paradise, and rest will in any case burn in Hell, not to talk of nonMuslims. It seems that Allah has already decided that 99% of people would be in Hell. So let those loving humanity share the troubles of their fellow humans in Hell than enjoy the luxuries of Paradise alone! 3. As proven earlier, neither can Quran claim authenticity, nor can there be any way to assert that Muhammad and Quran are to be taken so seriously as Dr Naik would want us to take.

4. On contrary, Vedas do not force anyone to believe in Vedas or anything. One is given the liberty to explore, discover and only then accept anything. Blind faith and fear of Hell and lure of Heaven are not tactics employed to attract followership. Also one need not believe in any agent of God to achieve bliss.)

DR.NAIK’S REMARK “The question that arises is “which revelation of God was sent to India and whether we can consider the Vedas and the other Hindu Scriptures to be the revelations of God?” There is no text in the Qur’an or Sahih Hadith mentioning the name of the revelation that was sent to India. Since the names of the Vedas or other Hindu scriptures are no where to be found in Qur’an and Sahih Hadith, one cannot say for sure that they were the revelations of God. They may be the revelation of God or may not be the revelation of God. Even if the Veda was the word of God today you have to follow the Qur’anEven if the Vedas and the other scriptures were the revelations from God, they were only meant for people of that time and were to be followed only for that particular period of time. Today all human beings through out the world including India should only follow the last and final Revelation of God, i.e. the Qur’an. Moreover since all the previous revelations were not meant to be followed for eternity, Almighty God did not preserve them in their original form. There is not a single religious scripture of any of the major religions which claims to be the word of God and has maintained its pure original text and is free from alteration, adulteration and interpolation. Since the Glorious Qur’an is to be followed for eternity, Allah (swt) has taken upon Himself to maintain its original purity and guard it from corruption. Allah says in Glorious Qur’an.” COMMENT: 1. Here his hypocrisy is finally caught. And Dr Naik should either chop his hands or get himself lashed after consulting Islamic Criminal Law. He is suddenly in doubt whether Vedas are revelations or not. But larger part of his entire thesis rests on proving that Vedas prophesise Prophet Muhammad. If Vedas give revelations about Prophet Muhammad, population of Mecca, companions of Muhammad, and even number of leaders he fought against, what remains to have doubt on Vedas being revelations and being Prophetic by prophesising Prophet Muhammad? 2. If we accept Dr Naik blindly so far, we should agree that Vedas contain such detailed Prophecies about Muhammad that even Quran does not have! Thus obviously Vedas are more prophetic and revelation than Quran. Can Dr Naik provide a similar detailed prophecy from Quran? As

WWW.AGNIVEER.COM

54

"NO COPYRIGHTS" AND "INTENDED FOR FREE CIRCULATION"

www.agniveer.com
per his previous logic, role of Vedas ended with Quran. So vedas predicted Quran and Muhammad. Why could Quran predict nothing of that sort? 3. Obviously two points emerge – one, that Vedas have been proved by Dr Naik to be more prophetic and revelations than Quran. And hence Vedas must be followed and not Quran. Two, since Dr Naik has committed a crime by showing hypocrisy in his own statements by doubting the very Vedas whom he himself proved to be prophetic, he should have his hands chopped off or hae himself lashed or whatever as per Islamic Criminal Law. This would ensure Paradise for him, because Allah is merciful! 4. And if he does not get himself punished as per Islamic Criminal Law, he is a Kafir who has ensured Hell for himself more than anyone else. In that case, he is not to be taken seriously. Quran says that one should not believe in words of hypcrites and Kafirs who are there to deceive and fool you.)

DR.NAIK’S REMARK “Allah” in Rigveda Book 2 Hymn I verse II Even in the Rigveda which is the most sacred scripture of the Hindus, one of the attributes given to God Almighty in Book no 2 Hymn no I verse II, is ‘Ila’ which if pronounced properly is the same as Allah. Allo Upanishad: Amongst the various Upanishads one of the Upanishad is named as ‘Allo’ Upanishad in which God is referred to as “Allah” several times.” COMMENT: 1. One does admit that Muhammad did not discover a new language (He was illiterate by the way). So he used words of the prevalent language. And Arabic definitely is derived from Vedic Sanskrit which is the mother of all languages. So Allah can derive from ‘Allah”. We are happy to see Dr Naik finally accepting his Vedic roots. So he should come back to the basics and start using ‘Ila’ to worship ‘Allah’. Further he should also come back to roots of ‘Naik’ which is ‘Naayak’ of Sanskrit and accept the Vedic language and worship in totality. We would be glad to teach him and help him forget his hypocritical ways. 2. Allo Upanishad is a well-known fraud Upanishad. One hundred years ago Muslims used to call it a part of Vedas. But now after Vedas became easily available, they now call it a separate Upanishad! This entertaining book contains mix of Arabic and Sanskrit and seems to be concocted during our long Muslim rule. The grammar is completely out of place

and no one can trace this upanishad to any original root – either in Vedas or Brahmans or any branch of Vedas.) A more critical analysis of Quran and such spurious claims are found here: http://www.vjsingh.info/chapterfourteen.html Having concluded this commentary on Dr Zakir Naik’s research into Hinduism, we come to following conclusions: a. If Muhammad is in Hindu Scriptures, he was a ghost, demon and massmurderer b. Dr Zakir Naik and IRF is proven to have committed hypocrisy and falsehood, and hence should punish themselves as per Islamic Criminal Law (cutting off-hands, lashing or whatever) c. The authenticity of Quran is questionable. Its is also not as prophetic as Vedas. So Dr Naik and IRF should embrace the Vedas and change their and Allah’s name as per vedic traditions. d. In any case, challenge to Dr Naik is still open. e. The basis of Dr Naik’s logic is Poison=Death=Rest=Peace=Islam, hence Poison = Islam All truth-seekers are appealed to reject the path of falsehood and embrace truth and truth alone. Or have their hands chopped off as per Islamic law.

Prophet in Hindu Scriptures – An analysis (Part 1)

A relatively new propaganda seems to be on rage these days – that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) has been prophesised in Hindu Scriptures. This seems to be a great hit in major Islamic websites over last few years. It is also very useful in increasing the effectiveness of conversion programs driven by vision of making India a Muslim country within next 5 years (as resolved by Maulana Abdullah Tariq recently on Peace TV). And why shouldn’t it be effective. First, it is proved that the Kalki Avatar mentioned in Bhavishya Puran is none other than Prophet Muhammad. Second, it is also demonstrated that Vedas, the final authority in Hinduism, themselves sang praise of Prophet Muhammad. Now the entry barriers for a Hindu in embracing Islam has suddenly evaporated! All that a devout Hindu is doing now is accepting the directions of his own religion with further sincerity. Thus, when a close friend of mine, who is an expert in Islam, visited a prominent temple in the heart of Lucknow, he was greeted by the head priest. He could see marks on forehead of the priest. When discussions continued on matter of religion, the priest explained to him how Prophet is the final goal for every Hindu and how Islam alone can save humanity. Now my friend realized that the mark on the head was out of 5 times of daily prayer in submission to the legend who has been prophesised in Hindu Scriptures! And this is the new direction of Islamic conversion techniques that he has been witnessing. In this series, we shall critically analyze the claims of this propaganda and bring truth to the fore. The founder of this hypothesis is none other than the stage-performer Dr Zakir Naik who can recite page number, chapter number and verse number for any book on earth. His style is so hypnotic and entertaining that the audience no more has the space to check relevance of his

57

"NO COPYRIGHTS" AND "INTENDED FOR FREE CIRCULATION"

www.agniveer.com
references. The same style is evident in his writing as well, which form the basis of his memorized speeches. And now, the confused Muslim youth has found a new passion that confirms their seat in Paradise. They would simply copy-paste from his articles and spread the good word around on internet forums, blogs and social networking sites. The print outs are circulated in colleges and schools. This is often very effective against certain less-well-versed Hindus who fall under the ploy. I hope this article will at least serve as a ready reference for answering this propaganda through a similar copy-paste if nothing more. However if this induces an attitude of questioning among the readers to seek the truth, and at least reject the obvious falsehoods that come in this journey, I would consider my efforts to be fruitful. This series is based on the original article written by Dr Zakir Naik and published on Islamic Research Foundation website. You can review the same here: http://www.irf.net/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=201 &Itemid=131 Before we get into a more detailed analysis, let us argue a few more points: Muslims have been in India for around 1000 years now. And for majority of the time, they were ruling this country. Why is it that Muslims could not discover this obvious fact in so many years? In fact, study of Vedas and Purans were more popular in those times than it is today! Why is it that no commentary on Vedas written by anyone since Vedas were first authored (they are considered the oldest books) could ever discover such an important fact which is to decide the fate of the world? After all, as per Dr Naik and Quran, the only way to book a ticket to Paradise is by believing in Prophet Muhammad to be the last Prophet and his message being the only authoritative message of God! Thus no message of Vedas can be more important than this message, if it is indeed a true fiction! If indeed Vedas could prophesise coming of Prophet Muhammad, why not consider Vedas to be work of another Prophet? Is it not a miracle that the oldest book on earth could predict arrival of the last Prophet! So, why not accept Vedas as book of God? The usual answer to this perplexing question is that Vedas may have been the first book, but Quran is last and hence only Quran has to be followed. Now my counter-question is that is God perfect or not? If yes, which is what Quran wants us to believe, then why could not God give his first book as final edition? If God knows everything, what made him change his own theories? This means that God is imperfect. Here, when trapped, the proponents weakly argue that God’s knowledge is same but the application changes from time to time. If that be so, should not a new Quran come now when the world order has completely changed from barbaric middle ages when

Quran had to discrimination? accept evils like slavery, polygamy and gender Further, Vedas talk of rebirth. They talk of monogamy. They talk of Law of Karma and refuse belief in Heaven or Hell. They believe that nature, God and soul are beginning-less and endless. Creation and Destruction happen in continuous cycles. These are completely opposite to Quranic view of polygamy, one birth, permanent Heaven or Hell and this being the first and last creation of God that happened in few days a few thousand years ago. I can agree to some extent to future plans being modified by God as part of some grand strategy, but how can even God change the history of universe that had already happened even before Vedas came in Quran, his revised edition of message? Is God so forgetful of what he has already done? If that be so, what is the guarantee that he will not realize some more mistakes and send another edition of his message? Secondly, if indeed Vedas could predict about Prophet Muhammad, and Dr Zakir Naik sincerely believes so, should he not consider Vedas also as a book by Prophets? If not last, at least the first one? This is where Dr Naik’s corrupt tricks get exposed. He fears that any admission of any other books apart from those followed by believers (Jews, Christians and Muslims) being given by God may put him in Hell forever, as per instructions in Quran. So in another article of his, he flatly refuses to admit that Vedas are indeed books of revelation. He conveniently forgets that he himself has proved that Vedas gave the biggest prophecy of all times – the advent of Prophet Muhammad and claims that “ There is no text in the Qur’an or Sahih Hadith mentioning the name of the revelation that was sent to India. Since the names of the Vedas or other Hindu scriptures are no where to be found in Qur’an and Sahih Hadith, one cannot say for sure that they were the revelations of God. They may be the revelation of God or may not be the revelation of God.” You can check it out on his FAQ on Hinduism in his IRF site (www.irf.net) We should also scrutinize what qualifications Dr Zakir Naik possesses to interpret Vedas? Is he a Sanskrit scholar or a Vedic Pandit? Or has he referred to works of any scholar? No! He simply lists names of some commentators on Vedas in his articles whom he has referred to. Most of these are either western indologists who are not considered authentic in first place, or some others whom only Dr Naik knows. Further he does not provide exact translation by any of the scholars and only writes out the commentary that suits his pre-drawn conclusion. Even the western indologists did not hint on even remotest reference to Muhammad! Thus all Dr Naik has done is following the old art of marketing, “That a lie shouted thousand times becomes a truth!” In next parts of the series, we will analyze the prophecy of Muhammad in Bhavishya Puran and Vedas respectively.

PROPHET IN HINDU SCRIPTURES – BHAVISHYA PURAN (PART 2)

Dr Naik provides a very detailed analysis of verses of Bhavishya Puran along with references. The only mistake he made was that he presented a completely opposite picture of Prophet Muhammad compared to what Bhavishya Puran actually writes. Refer http://www.irf.net/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=201&Itemi d=131) http://bhavishyapuran.blogspot.com/ provides an excellent analysis of the relevant portions of Bhavishya Puran with scans of original texts and dictionary meanings of the key words. In summary, the actual meaning of the verses is as follows:

WWW.AGNIVEER.COM

“Shri Suta Goswami said that a demon called Tripurasur who was earlier burnt to ashes by Shiva has taken birth again in form of Mahamada (Muhammad) and his deeds are like that of an evil ghost. The ghost was rebuked by Kalidas as “O rascal, you have created an illusion to bewilder the king, I will kill you, you are the lowest…” Further, the ghost called Mahamada comes in dream of King Bhoja and says, “O king, your religion is of course known as the best religion among all. Still I am going to establish a terrible and demoniac religion by the order of the Lord . The symptoms of my followers will be that they first of all will cut their genitals, have no shikha, but having beard, be wicked, make noise loudly and eat everything. They should eat animals without performing any rituals. This is my opinion. They will perform purificatory act with the musala or a pestle as you purify your things with kusha. Therefore, they will be known as musalman, the corrupters of religion. Thus the demoniac religion will be founded by me.” It is amply clear that contrary to Dr Naik’s claims, Mahamada (Muhammad) is being condemned here as a demon and not as a spiritual person. Far from

being a Kalki Avatar, Muhammad is being foretold as a devil harbinger of nuisance! Having analyzed the verses, let us analyze a few more points regarding Bhavishya Puran: 1. Bhavishya Puran is not considered an authoritative religious scripture. It is amply clear that the book continued to be written till late 19th century. Because it also contains stories of Jesus Christ, Akbar, Sawai Jai Singh, Alha Udal, Tulsidas, Surdas, Guru Nanak, Shahjahan, Aurangzeb, Shivaji and even Queen Victoria and her Parliament. Bulk of the material seems to be written during foreign rule. Thus, Bhavishya Puran does not even come in category of evidence, when it comes to Hindu religion. 2. Still if Dr Zakir Naik has infallible faith in Bhavishya Puran, he should also admit that Muhammad was a devil and reincarnation of Tripurasur. 3. Also, if Dr Naik has so much trust on Bhavishya Puran and considers the book so prophetic, why does he not admit other advices of the book – the fastings on specific days and their benefits, worship of different idols, avoidance of meat, celibacy, shraadh, prohibition of marriage among close relatives, agnihotra, holy places, cow protection etc. And accordingly, he should refuse to believe in those verses of Quran which are against the precepts of Bhavishya Puran. In the next part of the series, we shall critically examine the claim of Prophet Muhammad in Vedas. ———————————————————————————————More on Bhavishya Puran: Extracted from http://bhavishyapuran.blogspot.com/ Bhavishya Purana : The Prediction of Islam And Muhammad According to Bhavishya purana Mahamada (Incarnation of Tripurasura the demon) = Dharmadushika (Polluter of righteousness) Religion founded by Mahamada = Paisachyadharama (demoniac religion) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Original Sanskrit Version: Bhavishya Puran: Prati Sarg: Part III:3,3 5-27

Translation source: (http://www.indiadivine.org/articles/188/1/Bhavishya-Purana-The-Predictionof-Islam/Page1.html) [From the third part of the Pratisarga Parva.] ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Shri Suta Gosvami said: In the dynasty of king Shalivahana, there were ten kings who went to the heavenly planets after ruling for over 500 years. Then gradually the morality declined on the earth. At that time Bhojaraja was the tenth of the kings on the earth. When he saw that the moral law of conduct was declining he went to conquer all the directions of his country with ten-thousand soldiers commanded by Kalidasa. He crossed the river Sindhu and conquered over the gandharas, mlecchas, shakas, kasmiris, naravas and sathas. He punished them and collected a large ammount of wealth. Then the king went along with Mahamada (Muhammad), the preceptor of mleccha-dharma, and his followers to the great god, Lord Shiva, situated in the desert. He bathed Lord Shiva with Ganges water and worshipped him in his mind with pancagavya (milk, ghee, yoghurt, cow dung, and cow urine) and sandalwood paste, etc. After he offered some prayers and pleased him. Suta Goswami said: After hearing the king’s prayers, Lord Shiva said: O king Bhojaraja, you should go to the place called Mahakakshvara, that land is called Vahika and now is being contaminated by the mlecchas. In that terrible country there no longer exists dharma. There was a mystic demon named Tripura(Tripurasura), whom I have already burnt to ashes, he has come again by the order of Bali. He has no origin but he achieved a benediction from me. His name is Mahamada(Muhammad) and his deeds are like that of a ghost. Therefore, O king, you should not go to this land of the evil ghost. By my mercy your intelligence will be purified. Hearing this the king came back to his country and Mahamada(Muhammad) came with them to the bank of the river Sindhu. He was expert in expanding illusion, so he said to the king very pleasingly: O great king, your god has become my servant. Just see, as he eats my remnants, so I will show you. The king became surprised when he saw this just before them. Then in anger Kalidasa rebuked Mahamada(Muhammad) “O rascal, you have created an illusion to bewilder the king, I will kill you, you are the lowest…”

That city is known as their site of pilgrimage, a place which was Madina or free from intoxication. Having a form of a ghost (Bhuta), the expert illusionist Mahamada(Muhammad) appeared at night in front of king Bhojaraja and said: O king, your religion is of course known as the best religion among all. Still I am going to establish a terrible and demoniac religion by the order of the Lord . The symptoms of my followers will be that they first of all will cut their genitals, have no shikha, but having beard, be wicked, make noise loudly and eat everything. They should eat animals without performing any rituals. This is my opinion. They will perform purificatory act with the musala or a pestle as you purify your things with kusha. Therefore, they will be known as musalman, the corrupters of religion. Thus the demoniac religion will be founded by me. After having heard all this the king came back to his palace and that ghost(Muhammad) went back to his place. The intelligent king, Bhojaraj established the language of Sanskrit in three varnas – the brahmanas, kshatriyas and vaisyas – and for the shudras he established prakrita-bhasha, the ordinary language spoken by common men. After ruling his kingdom for 50 years, he went to the heavenly planet. The moral laws established by him were honored even by the demigods. The arya-varta, the pious land is situated between Vindhyacala and Himacala or the mountains known as Vindhya and Himalaya. The Aryans reside there, but varna-sankaras reside on the lower part of Vindhya. The musalman people were kept on the other side of the river Sindhu. On the island of Barbara, Tusha and many others also the followers of Isamsiha were also situated as they were managed by a king or demigods.

Tripurasura’s Past life [Mythology(not from bhavishya purana)]
Source(http://www.ashtavinayaktemples.com/temple.asp?serialno=3&tempid= T009) Tripurasur was the son of Sage Gritsamad. One day the sage sneezed and from this was created a young boy who the Sage brought up as his own son. The sage taught the boy the Ganana Twam, Ganesh Mantra. Equipped with this mantra the boy meditated intensely on Lord Ganesh who ultimately blessed him. He was given three pura-s of gold silver and iron. Since he was the owner of these three pura-s he was given the name Tripur. Ganesh also bestowed on Tripur to be the most powerful, who none but Lord Shiva himself could destroy and after being destroyed by Lord Shiva he would attain mukti-salvation. This boon made Tripur proud and he brought havoc in the entire world. He conquered the Nether world and then proceeded to takeover Heaven. He defeated Indra the king of heaven. His aggression made Lord Brahma hide in a lotus and Lord Vishnu in the Shirsagar. He soon also took over Lord Shiva’s Kailash Parvat and thus became the King of all the three worlds. The gods wondered on how to vanquish Tripurasur. Lord Narada told them that, since he had been granted a boon by Lord Ganesh himself it would be very difficult to vanquish him. He advised them to meditate on Lord Ganesh. Pleased Lord Ganesh decided to help the Gods. Disguised as Brahmin he visited Tripurasur and told him that he was a very enlightened Brahmin and could make for him three flying planes. Riding these he would be able to go anywhere he wished within minutes. The planes could only be destroyed by Shiva.In return Lord Ganesh asked him to get him the statue of Chintamani which was at the Kailash Mountain. Lord Shiva refused to give the statue to Tripurasur’s messenger. The angry Tripurasur himself went to get the statue. A fierce battle started between him and Lord Shiva. He destroyed everything that belonged to the Lord Shiva who too retired to the Girikandar. Lord Shiva too realized that he was unable to destroy Tripurasur because he had not paid his respects to Lord Ganesh. He recited the Shadaakshar Mantra to invoke Ganesh. On doing so from his mouth emerged Gajanan to grant Shiva a boon. Shiva continued his invocation of Ganesh who ultimately directed him on how Tripurasur could be killed. Lord Shiva was asked to recite the Sahastranam and then direct an arrow at the three pura-s of Tripurasur. Lord Shiva followed these instructions and finally vanquished Tripurasur. The place where Lord Shiva invoked Lord Ganesh he also created a temple for him. The town surrounding this temple was called Manipur. The village

PROPHET IN HINDU SCRIPTURES – VEDAS (PART 3)

Let us now critically examine the claim of Muhammad in Vedas. You can read the original article at http://www.irf.net/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=201&Ite mid=131 Let me declare at outset that Vedas contain no history or geography whatsoever and contain description of fundamental principles governing life and universe in a variety of manner. There are indeed names of several historical persons in Vedas. But that does not mean that Vedas prophesise those people. It only means that those words were popular and people chose to adopt these names. If we find mention of word “Krishna” in Mahabharat or Vedas, it does not mean, they prophesise about Lal Krishna Advani! By that logic, Bible prophesises about all people born with name George and Islamic texts about people named Muhammad, Ali etc!

WWW.AGNIVEER.COM

I shall not dwell into the concept of Vedas being beyond prophecies, history and geography in this analysis. On contrary, we shall prove that even if we assume Vedas to contain prophecies, that can no way be associated with Prophet Muhammad, unless IRF believes that Prophet Muhammad was a mass murderer and protector of cows, as we shall see later. And if indeed they believe so, let them issue a world-wide fatwa to start donating cows, stop eating beef and admitting that Prophet Muhammad killed the entire population of Mecca! Just as they would be issuing a fatwa that Prophet Muhammad was a ghost/demon incarnate in name of Tripurasur (as per Bhavishya Puran). Going further, they should also then accept the theory of rebirth! I shall quote the text published at IRF website as “IRF:” and the analysis of the same as “ANALYSIS:” The actual meanings of the mantras will be quotes as “Actual:”

1. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) Prophesised in Atharvaveda
IRF: In the 20th book of Atharvaveda Hymn 127 Some Suktas (chapters) are known as Kuntap Sukta. Kuntap means the consumer of misery and troubles. Thus meaning the message of peace and safety and if translated in Arabic means Islam. ANALYSIS: 1. By this logic, all books of spiritualism and self-help and their content would mean Islam! Because Peace and removal of misery are the primary goals of any spiritual text on self-help book. 2. Considering that Vedas came way before Muhammad founded Islam, this only means that whatever peaceful or good was brought by Muhammad in Islam was actually already a part of Vedic traditions. And that the word Islam was already existing way before Muhammad adapted it to name his cult. It is welcoming that Muslims are now acknowledging that they owe their peacefulness to Vedas. I hope they would take this journey of seeking truth even further and completely embrace the Vedas to reach their original roots.

IRF: Kuntap also means hidden glands in the abdomen. These mantras are called so probably because their true meaning was hidden and was to be revealed in future. Its hidden meaning is also connected with the navel or the middle point of this earth. Makkah is called the Ummul Qur’a the mother of the towns or the naval of the earth. In many revealed books it was the first house of Divine worship where God Almighty gave spiritual nourishment to the world. The Qur’an says in Surah Ali-Imran chapter 3, verse 96: “The first house (of worship) appointed for men was that at Bakkah (Makkah) full of blessings and of guidance and for all kinds of beings”. Thus Kuntap stands for Makkah or Bakkah. ANALYSIS: 1. Which dictionary states that Kuntaap means hidden glands in the abdomen?

WWW.AGNIVEER.COM

69

"NO COPYRIGHTS" AND "INTENDED FOR FREE CIRCULATION"

www.agniveer.com
2. Further, even if it means so, as researched by Dr Naik, how does it link with navel? In abdomen, all other organs are hidden inside – liver, stomach, intestine etc. It is only the navel which is not hidden! 3. The third line of IRF quote obviously refers to Islamic belief of earth being flat, and Muhammad being born in centre of the earth! But as per Vedas and modern science, earth is almost spherical and hence all points on it can be considered middle point. 4. Had Mecca (Makkah) been on Equator, perhaps some credibility could have been attached to IRF claims. But as per modern science, in a nonflat world, Mecca lies at 21-29 N. It is not even on Tropic of Cancer! (The importance given to Mecca in Islam is because of historical reasons dating prior to advent of Islam. The worship of Mecca was so popular that Muhammad could not have spread Islam by opposing it. So a religion that claims to worship only the shapeless, omnipresent Allah would still seek to face Mecca and visit it at least once to get passport to Paradise. As per some historical researches, there was a Hindu temple in Mecca. The story of Mecca being navel of earth seems to indicate that there was a grand statute of reclining Vishnu there with Brahma coming to from his navel, as indicated by certain researches. This is a popular Hindu image and may have led to story of Mecca being navel of earth, in dark ages.)

But no way, can Kuntaap be implied to mean Mecca!
5. The logic of IRF is fabulous: Kuntaapa = abdominal glands = navel = center = center of the earth = Mecca hence, Kuntaapa = Mecca Let’s use IRF logic on Islam itself and see where it leads us: Poison=Death=Rest=Peace=Islam,hence, Poison=Islam So from IRF evidence itself, there is cold, hard proof that Islam is Poison! IRF: Several people have translated these Kuntap Suktas like M. Bloomfield, Prof. Ralph Griffith, Pandit Rajaram, Pandit Khem Karan, etc. ANALYSIS: 1. Of the translators mentioned by IRF, two are western indologists who had their own Christian agenda. They can no way be considered relevant for understanding of Vedas.

WWW.AGNIVEER.COM

70

"NO COPYRIGHTS" AND "INTENDED FOR FREE CIRCULATION"

2. But interestingly, even they talk of nothing even remotely related to Muhammad or Mecca in the alleged verses. The only common point perhaps is the word camel. It seems that IRF team frantically searched for various mantras referring to camel in Vedas, and chose to interpret them, as per their own agenda, as would soon be evident. Readers can review the Griffith translation of these mantras at http://www.sacredtexts.com/hin/av/av20127.htm and decide themselves. They can review translations of other scholars mentioned by IRF and check truth themselves. We shall provide excerpts from translation by Pandit Khem check them at Karan as illustration. You can http://www.aryasamajjamnagar.org/atharvaveda_v2/atharvaveda.htm 3. In their pursuit of searching mantras with reference to camel, IRF made another blunder. The Kuntaap Sukta appear at end of Atharvaveda and are not considered to be part of Veda Samhita, but merely an addendum (Khil Bhaag or Appendix) by many scholars. This is the only portion in entire Vedas that have such a difference in opinion among scholars. Had IRF chosen any other Sukta/Hymn in more than 20000 mantras of Vedas, they would have been much safer. Thus Kuntaap which IRF proved to mean “safe” is not that safe to defend their claim of Muhammad in Vedas! IRF: The main points mentioned in the Kuntap Suktas i.e. in Atharvaveda book 20 Hymn 127 verses 1-13 are: Mantra 1 He is Narashansah or the praised one (Muhammad). He is Kaurama: the prince of peace or the emigrant, who is safe, even amongst a host of 60,090 enemies. Mantra 2 He is a camel-riding Rishi, whose chariot touches the heaven. Mantra 3 He is Mamah Rishi who is given a hundred gold coins, ten chaplets (necklaces), three hundred good steeds and ten thousand cows. Mantra 4 Vachyesv rebh. ‘Oh! ye who glorifies’.

WWW.AGNIVEER.COM

71

"NO COPYRIGHTS" AND "INTENDED FOR FREE CIRCULATION"

www.agniveer.com
ANALYSIS: Mantra 1 Actual Meaning (Pandit Khem Karan): Narashanshah or the praised one shall be praised. O Kauram – one who dwells happily on earth, we shall receive 60090 kinds of gifts from those brave ones who have destroyed violent ones. Mantra 2, 3 Actual Meaning (Pandit Khem Karan): His chariot has twenty fast-moving camels and she-camels. He donated 100 gold coins, 10 garlands, 300 horses and 10000 cows to deserving people. Mantra 4 Actual Meaning (Pandit Khem Karan): Keep preaching in the manner a bird chirps on a tree laden with fruits till death comes. So far, nothing seems odd about the meanings given by IRF or other scholars. The only differences is that certain terms have subtly been introduced to set the context for proving Muhammad in these mantras. In modern parlance, this technique is called covert persuasion. Note that so far nothing hints at Muhammad except that there is a mention of camel! Now let us enjoy the IRF research magic! IRF: The Sanskrit word Narashansah means ‘the praised one’, which is the literal translation of the Arabic word Muhammad (pbuh). ANALYSIS: 1. The Arabic term b-ismi-llāhi r-raḥmāni r-raḥīm which is uttered before every verse of Quran is literal translation of “Dayanand ki Jai”. Does it mean that Quran sings glory of Dayanand? Now Dayanand has been the strongest critic of Quran ever. So does it mean that Quran admits that Dayanand is right? 2. Again this is nothing but Poison = Death = Rest = Peace = Islam, hence Islam = Poison ( we shall keep revisiting this logic wherever IRF uses the same logic as well) IRF: The Sanskrit word Kaurama means ‘one who spreads and promotes peace’. The holy Prophet was the ‘Prince of Peace’ and he preached equality of human kind and

universal brotherhood. Kaurama also emigrant. The Prophet migrated from Madinah and was thus also an Emigrant. ANALYSIS: 1. Kaurama means ‘one who dwells peacefully on earth’. Now history is evident of how peaceful has Prophet’s life been, how many peaceful battles he waged, how peacefully he conquered Mecca and how peaceful is Islamic concept of brotherhood for non-believers in Quran/Prophet. 2. The way Prophet migrated from Makkah to Madinah, has been replicated by millions throughout the history. One can hardly name a historically famous person who becomes famous without moving around! Krishna migrated from Vrindawan to Mathura and then to Dwarka. Also Krishna has several meanings which mean ‘promoter of peace’ and ‘praised one’. So this verse equally applies to him as well! 3. Again the logic is same: Poison = Death = Rest = Peace = Islam means an Makkah to

IRF: He will be protected from 60,090 enemies, which was the population of Makkah.

ANALYSIS:

WWW.AGNIVEER.COM

From which census did IRF find out this population figure? Or is yet another revelation?

IRF: The Prophet would ride a camel. This clearly indicates that it cannot be an Indian Rishi, since it is forbidden for a Brahman to ride a camel according to the Sacred Books of the East, volume 25, Laws of Manu pg. 472. According to Manu Smirti chapter 11 verse 202, “A Brahman is prohibited from riding a camel or an ass and to bathe naked. He should purify himself by suppressing his breath”. ANALYSIS: 1. The mantra says allegorically that the chariot of the king will have twenty male and female camels. Even if we take it literally, did "NO COPYRIGHTS" AND "INTENDED FOR FREE CIRCULATION"

73

www.agniveer.com
Muhammad ever travel on such a camel-chariot? And is Prophet the only camel-rider on earth ever in history? 2. 3. 4. The mantra talks about a king who is a Kshatriya and not a Brahman. So the relevant excerpt from Manu is not applicable in first place. Vedas nowhere prohibit camel-ride for anyone. Manu Smriti has been written much after Vedas. So evidence of Manu Smriti is not applicable in first place. Also the particular shloka from Manu Smriti is considered a later day interpolation by many scholars. In fact half of the Manu Smriti is considered interpolated because it is against the Vedas, which Manu himself declares to be most supreme. But even if we agree to this shloka of Manu Smriti, it is not applicable or relevant in context of given mantras of Atharvaveda. Further the shloka simply states that if a Brahman has to ride on a camel, he can purify himself by doing Pranayam. It does not say that Brahman is banned from riding camel. And the mantra or the entire Sukta has no reference to Brahman whatsoever. It talks about battle and war, which is prerogative of Kshatriya and not Brahman, as per traditional Manu system.

5.

IRF: This mantra gave the Rishi’s name as Mamah. No rishi in India or another Prophet had this name Mamah which is derived from Mah which means to esteem highly, or to revere, to exalt, etc. Some Sanskrit books give the Prophet’s name as ‘Mohammad’, but this word according to Sanskrit grammar can also be used in the bad sense. It is incorrect to apply grammar to an Arabic word. Actually shas the same meaning and somewhat similar pronunciation as the word Muhammad (pbuh). ANALYSIS: 1. The word “Mamahe” is used in the 3rd mantra of 127th sukta of Atharvaveda and not “Mamah”. There is a world of difference as we will see in next point. The derivation as given by IRF is their own independent research not corroborated by any text on grammar. 2. The word ‘Mamahe’ has been used as a verb here, meaning “We give” and NOT a noun. 3. Further the word has been used in plural and not singular. So it can not denote a singular person by wildest stretch of imagination. If the word ‘Mamahe’ has to mean a noun ‘Muhammad’ in this mantra, the mantra becomes meaningless. Because ‘Mamahe’ is

WWW.AGNIVEER.COM

74

"NO COPYRIGHTS" AND "INTENDED FOR FREE CIRCULATION"

www.agniveer.com
the ONLY verb in the entire mantra. And no sentence can have any meaning without presence of even a single verb! IRF: He is given 100 gold coins, which refers to the believers and the earlier companions of the Prophet during his turbulent Makkan life. Later on due to persecution they migrated from Makkah to Abysinia. Later when Prophet migrated to Madinah all of them joined him in Madinah. ANALYSIS: 1. Suddenly, gold coins have turned into believers with Prophet in his Mecca times! 2. No text of Islam states that his followers were 100 in number initially. Some biographers do hint at 40 followers, but 100 seems to be another new revelation. Refer http://www.religionfacts.com/islam/history/prophet.htm

Thus this is the Prophetic imagination taken too far!

IRF: The 10 chaplets or necklaces were the 10 best companions of the Holy Prophet (pbuh) known as Ashra-Mubbashshira (10 bestowed with good news). These were foretold in this world of their salvation in the hereafter i.e. they were given the good news of entering paradise by the Prophet’s own lips and after naming each one he said “in Paradise”. They were Abu Bakr, Umar, Uthman, Ali, Talha, Zubair, Abdur Rahman Ibn Auf, Saad bin Abi Waqqas, Saad bin Zaid and Abu Ubaidah (May Allah be well-pleased with all of them). ANALYSIS: 1. What made IRF think that necklace can mean companions? Merely the fact that 10 companions of Prophet are very famous in Islamic folklores? Almost all Prophets of Islamroamed in desert and hence were camel riders. 2. So why can’t this mean Ten Commandments of Moses, by same logic!

IRF: The Sanskrit word Go is derived from Gaw which means ‘to go to war’. A cow is also called Go and is a symbol of war as well as peace. The 10,000 cows refer to the 10,000 companions who accompanied the Prophet (pbuh) when he entered Makkah during Fateh Makkah which was a unique victory in the history of mankind in which there was no blood shed. The 10,000 companions were pious and compassionate like cows and were at the same time strong and fierce and are described in the Holy Quran in Surah Fatah: “Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah; and those who are with him are strong against unbelievers, (but) compassionate amongst each other.” [Al-Qur'an 48:29] ANALYSIS: 1. This is yet another research of Dr Naik that ‘Go’ means ‘to go to war’. ‘Go’ indeed means a lot of things in various mantras depending on the context – Cow, Earth, Moving Body etc. But in the current context, where the subject is of donation, the obvious meaning is ‘Cow’. Donation of Cow has been a longstanding Vedic tradition still practiced and respected. All Vedic legends were preservers and protectors of cow. All noble Vedic kings were known to donate cows. Cow forms the backbone of Vedic civilization and Hinduism. This is where IRF comes in tight spot. Because contrary to donating cows, Muhammad and his followers till today are known to be the biggest tribe of cow-killers. They take pride in killing cows in Id. Thus, this reference to donating 10000 cows is sufficient enough to prove the most sceptic mind that these mantras have anything even remotely to do with Prophet Muhammad or any of his predecessors or successors. 2. It is even more hilarious to see the comparison of 10000 companions of Muhammad with cow. If they mean cow, then cow cannot mean ‘to go at war’ in this mantra. Because the same word cannot mean two completely different things in same context. 3. If indeed Muslims consider cows to be compassionate and pious, as described in IRF article, what makes them kill these cows in name of Allah? What makes Muhammad a cow-killer if that be so? 4. In fact in this mantra, to make sense in lines of IRF propaganda, Go has to mean three things – to go at war (a verb), symbol of peace and symbol of war, all at the same time! It has to be a verb and a noun at the same time! Because ‘Mamahe’ the only verb in the mantra has been deliberately interpreted as a noun in this mantra by IRF experts. Thus this would have to be the only sentence of its kind in history of language

where a word is a verb and two nouns at same time, and another word which is supposed to be a verb is now a noun.

Sounds confusing, right? But then confusion alone can breed such blinded theories!
IRF: This mantra calls the Prophet as Rebh which means one who praises, which when translated into Arabic is Ahmed, which is another name for the Holy Prophet (pbuh). ANALYSIS: 1. Again the same logic of Poison = Death = Rest = Peace = Islam => Poison = Islam 2. b-ismi-llāhi r-raḥmāni r-raḥīm is another way of saying “Dayanand ki Jai!”

2. Battle of the Allies described in the Vedas.
IRF: It is mentioned in Atharvaveda Book XX Hymn 21 verse 6, “Lord of the truthful! These liberators drink these feats of bravery and the inspiring songs gladdened thee in the field of battle. When thou renders vanquished without fight the ten thousand opponents of the praying one, the adoring one.” This Prophecy of the Veda describes the well-known battle of Ahzab or the battle of the Allies during the time of Prophet Muhammed. The Prophet was victorious without an actual conflict which is mentioned in the Qur’an in Surah Ahzab: “When the believers saw the confederate forces they said, “This is what Allah and His Messenger had promised us and Allah and His Messenger told us what was true.” And it only added to their faith and their zeal in obedience.” [Al-Qur'an 33:22]

The Sanskrit word karo in the Mantra means the ‘praying one’ which when translated into Arabic means ‘Ahmed’, the second name of Prophet Muhammed (pbuh). The 10,000 opponents mentioned in the Mantra were the enemies of the Prophet and the Muslims were only 3000 in number. The last words of the Mantra aprati ni bashayah means the defeat was given to the enemies without an actual fight. ANALYSIS: Actual Meaning (Pandit Khem Karan): “O Protector of Truthful! You have been pleased by those brave ones who produce bliss, by acts of bravery and noble passion in wars against the enemies. Through smart action oriented zeal, ten thousand enemies have been defeated without resistance.” 1. If indeed it means Battle of Ahzab, why is the number of soldiers in Prophet’s army not given? 2. The phrase Dash Sahsra or its variants are used in several places in Vedas to signify a large number or limitlessness. 3. There is no word as ‘Karo’ in the mantra. The closest sounding word in the mantra is “Karave’ which DOES NOT mean praying one’. It means ‘for the action-oriented’. NO name of Muhammad means ‘action-oriented’. So any connection with Muhammad is categorically ruled out. 4. The mantra refers to spiritual battle where the mind destroys innumerable varieties of negative thoughts through practice and meditation of positive things in life. And hence the victory is bloodless. The sukta can also be interpreted to explain strategies of war. But no way does it, or any mantra in Vedas refers to any kind of history. IRF team is advised to consult the Vedic experts to understand the hidden treasures and deep essence of Vedic mantras and come back to their original roots, rejecting the falsehood. IRF: The enemies’ defeat in the conquest of Makkah mentioned in Atharvaveda book 20 Hymn 21 verse no 9: is

WWW.AGNIVEER.COM

“You have O Indra, overthrown 20 kings and 60,099 men with an outstripping Chariot wheel who came to fight the praised one or far famed (Muhammad) orphan.” The population of Makkah at the time of Prophet’s advent was nearly 60,000. There were several clans in Makkah

each having its own chief. Totally there were about 20 chiefs to rule the population of Makkah. An Abandhu meaning a helpless man who was far-famed and ‘praised one’. Muhammad (pbuh) overcame his enemies with the help of God.

ANALYSIS: 1. There is no census data to validate that Mecca had a population of 60,000 in Muhammad’s era except IRF research based on their own revealed sources. Literal translation of this mantra means that 60000 plus enemies and their 20 kings were crushed under the chariots. By this logic, there should be 60,000 soldiers in the battlefield. If that be so, it means that entire population of Mecca fought against Muhammad and were killed by him. If that be so, if this mantra be a true Prophecy,Muhammad cannot be a symbol of peace. On contrary, it proves that Muhammad carried out a mass genocide of entire Mecca population because they refused to accept him as their dictator! Then, Islam remains a religion of peace only in Arabic dictionary, and not in reality! In reality, this Balttle of Mecca was as small tribal battle where 9001000 soldiers and 300 soldiers of Islam have supposed to have fought for a few hours, as per Islamic experts. And not more than 10 leaders are known to have participated from Meccan side.Thus neither the number 20, nor 60000 in mantra has any reference to this tiny battle. This sukta actually details spiritual battle in the mind as is evident from other mantras in the sukta. The same strategies can be extended to external war as well. But it has no inkling of relation with any tribal war. And if still, it is assumed to have so, it only means Muhammad was a mass-killer. IRF experts can decide what they want to accept.

A similar prophecy is also found in Rigveda Book I, Hymn 53 verse 9: The Sanskrit word used is Sushrama, which means praiseworthy or well praised which in Arabic means Muhammad (pbuh).

"NO COPYRIGHTS" AND "INTENDED FOR FREE CIRCULATION"

www.agniveer.com
ANALYSIS: 1. Literally translated, the meaning is similar to previous verse, implying Muhammad carried a mass-genocide of 60000 plus people to rule Mecca 2. Sushravasa means a good listener or a reliable friend in this mantra, nothing to do with Muhammad. 3. Even if its means well praised, it only means that Muhammad was wellpraised by his men for carrying carnage of 60000 people of Mecca!

It is in best interest of IRF to not harp on such attempts to discover Muhammad in Vedas which only denigrate him. Their research of Muhammad in Bhavishya Puran has already proved him a demon and a ghost Tripurasur!

4. Muhummad (pbuh) is also prophesised in the Samveda
IRF: Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is also prophesised in the Samveda Book II Hymn 6 verse 8: “Ahmed acquired from his Lord the knowledge of eternal law. I received light from him just as from the sun.” The Prophecy confirms: The name of the Prophet as Ahmed since Ahmed is an Arabic name. Many translators misunderstood it to be Ahm at hi and translated the mantra as “I alone have acquired the real wisdom of my father”. Prophet was given eternal law, i.e. the Shariah. The Rishi was enlightened by the Shariah of Prophet Muhammad. The Qur’an says in Surah Saba chapter 34 verse 28 “We have not sent thee but as a universal (Messenger) to men, giving them glad tidings and warning them (against sin), but most men understand not.” ANALYSIS: This is laughing Jehad at its best. The aim to kill infidels by making them laugh like anything. 1. I tried my best to locate this mantra in the Samaveda but could not. Maybe if they can provide the exact mantra, that would help.

2. ‘Aham At Hi’ is authentic Sanskrit way of expression. And in joining of words, ‘t’ becomes ‘d’. For example, ‘Sat’ + ‘Aachaar’ = “SaDaachaar”. ‘Hi’ means only. 3. If indeed Vedas predicted word ‘Ahmad’ which is Arabic word, does it mean Arabic is older than Vedic Sanskrit? 4. If Vedas could predict upto ‘Ahmad’ and number of his armymen and companion, what prevented Vedas from predicting his actual name “Muhammad”? Why did Allah create so much of confusion? Had he simply put the biography of Muhammad in a few mantras clearly spelling his name, crores of people would have been convinced of Prophet’s coming and would have prevented themselves from going to Hell! Allah must be crazy as per IRF research, then!

GENERALANALYSIS:
1. If indeed Vedas have prophecy on Muhammad, why are they not in one place. In an ocean of 20000 mantras, there are only 7 mantras about Prophet, the most important topic of the Vedas who would change the entire structure of Vedic concept topsy-turvy! These too are distributed randomly and none clearly spelled the name of Muhammad. They only mean Muhammad in same way as Islam means Poison. Was it that Allah was still confused about the name of his last Prophet? 2. If indeed Vedas predict that Muhammad would kill so many people and make 10 his companion, it means that Allah had already decided that these people would be killed by Muhammad and dispatched to Hell. He had pre-decided the fate of these people millenniums before he gave them birth on earth! Does it not make Allah unjust and biased? 3. If indeed Vedas could predict Muhammad and his life, why is IRF and Muslim world shy about embracing Vedas as Books of God? Why he has to write in FAQ on Hinduism that Vedas may or MAY NOT be book of God? 4. And if Vedas can predict Muhammad, and they talk of concepts which clearly contradict Quran, which one should be believed? After all Quran was written 20 years after Muhammad’s death, there was no oral tradition of memorizing and protecting Quran in Muhammad’s times and his favorite followers were fighting of each others’ lives after Muhammad died! So how can we trust Quran to be authentic? But Vedas have an oral tradition since its inception and inbuilt mechanism to prevent any interpolation of even a syllable. So they are definitely the most protected books of the world. So should not IRF, Dr Zakir Naik and his followers return to their roots which are so accurate, unchanged and so strong in predicting future?

Further, they predict Muhammad as nothing but mass-murderer, by IRF’s own research in Vedas! Their research in Bhavishya Puran proved him to be a ghost or demon called Tripurasur who is supposed to bring lot of nuisance in the world! (Kindly refer to previous part of this series) They say that lie has no feet! Hence it gets you trapped! I appeal to all my lost friends – IRF, Dr Zakir Naik, his friends and his followers - to explore the real praiseworthy, the real Narashansah in the Vedas, the Ishwar and reject false prophecies about false prophets. Such falsehood can only trap you in your own mistaken notions in same way as this falsehood has trapped you logically without any room for escape. I appeal to them to stop believing in and spreading myths and return back to their original path – the path of Truth and Reason! Only then can peace be on him (pbuh)!

www.agniveer.com POLYGAMY IN HINDUISM

Immediately after I published my analysis of Dr Zakir Naik’s views on Hinduism, I started receiving hate mails. However I also received a soft-copy of another book of his “Answers to Non-Muslims’ Common Questions about Islam”. This is another masterpiece of his sophism. I have already glimpsed through videos of his lectures where he recites this book line by line. Many rebuttals of this book are already available. However what perturbed me, was another set of misconceptions he attempts to breed regarding Hinduism through his self-proclaimed research. I can understand why Dr Zakir Naik has to spend so much space discussing Hinduism in an article on Muslims, and so much space discussing Islam in an article on Hinduism (See in FAQ on Hinduism at http://agniveer.com/featured/naik-faq-hinduism/)! This apparent confusion emerges from the fact that in current political, social and cultural situation, 80 crore Hindus form the most ideal conversion ground for Islamic Research Foundation. Peace TV managed by Dr Zakir Naik even announced this a few months ago that they would make Hindustan a Darul-Islam in next 5 years. Further, many Muslims believe in a prophecy that once India is conquered, only then would Jesus Christ come again and will bring end of the world. After that, Judgment Day would happen and they will go to Paradise to have their virgins and luxuries forever! The lure is too tempting for the uncultivated mind to drop all sense of reasoning! In this article, I shall cover the first question he addresses – POLYGAMY. Dr Zakir Naik has tried to prove that Hinduism is inherently a polygamous religion.

WWW.AGNIVEER.COM

"NO COPYRIGHTS" AND "INTENDED FOR FREE CIRCULATION"

DR.NAIK’S REMARK He states on Page 4 of the book: “The Qur’an is the only religious book, on the face of this earth, that contains the phrase ‘marry only one’. There is no other religious book that instructs men to have only one wife. In none of the other religious scriptures, whether it be the Vedas, the Ramayan, the Mahabharat, the Geeta, the Talmud or the Bible does one find a restriction on the number of wives. According to these scriptures one can marry as many as one wishes. It was only later, that the Hindu priests and the Christian Church restricted the number of wives to one. Many Hindu religious personalities, according to their scriptures, had multiple wives. King Dashrat, the father of Rama, had more than one wife. Krishna had several wives.” COMMENT: He continues giving some census data from sources best known to him alone that polygamy is more popular among Hindus than Muslims. I shall not dwell into what Polygamy means in Islam – whether marrying 4 wives in total in entire life, or keeping the total number of existing wives at 4 by divorcing old ones as one marries new ones, or having special provision of 9/11/16/++ for those having revelations, or permitting marriage with babies, or whether keeping unlimited slaves and not counting them as legal wives and thus skewing census data. These issues have been dealt with by a large number of people including women-rights organizations and ex-Muslims worldwide. Internet lists a large number of such reference sources that you can google upon. The focus of this article would be explode the myth that “according to Hindu scriptures one can marry as many as one wishes.” We start with the Vedas because Vedas are considered the foremost authority in matters of Dharma.

WWW.AGNIVEER.COM

POLYGAMY IN VEDAS
1. 2. There is no single mantra in the entire 4 Vedas that even give a hint of supporting more than one wife or more than one husband. Three mantras of Rig Veda, 1.124.7, 4.3.2 and 10.71.4 contain “Jaayeva Patya Ushatee Suvaasaah”. This means that knowledge comes to the scholar in same manner as a dedicated joyous wife comes only to her husband. “Jaaya” means wife and “Pati” means husband. Both appearing "NO COPYRIGHTS" AND "INTENDED FOR FREE CIRCULATION"

84

www.agniveer.com
in singular implies that only one husband-one wife relation is considered ideal. 3. 4. Rigveda 1.3.3 states that God is like a dedicated wife with high character and purity. This also implies that monogamy alone is considered ideal. Rigveda 10.149.4 compares love between God and devotee like that between dedicated wife and husband. Both “Jaaya” meaning wife and “Patim” meaning husband are used in singular number implying strict monogamy. Rigveda 10.85.20 appeals a bride to expand happiness for her husband. Again both husband and wife are referred in singular. Rigveda 10.85.23 appeals to wife and husband to always have self-control. Its obvious from reference to self-control and singular numbers for both wife and husband that monogamy alone is recommended. All mantras relating to marriage are addressed in dual number to a couple of husband-wife implying one wife for husband and one husband for wife. Some examples are Rig Veda 10.85.24, 10.85.42, 10.85.47 and almost entire 14th Chapter of Atharva Veda which deals with subject of marriage. Most mantras pray for faithful relation for entire life-time. Please note that Sanskrit has a dual number apart from singular and plural, specifically to remove this confusion that people may have. In Atharva Veda 7.35.4 both husband and wife state that, “You establish me in your heart so that our minds become one and same.” In Atharva Veda 7.38.4, wife says that “You should only be mine. You should not even discuss about other women.” What can be a more clear prohibition of polygamy than this!

5. 6.

8. 9.

WWW.AGNIVEER.COM

10. Atharva Ved 3.30.2 and 14.2.64 also appeal husband and wife to be devoted and faithful to each other. 11. Perhaps Veda provider Ishwar knew that despite all this, some selfproclaimed experts may still find reasons to justify polygamy. Thus certain mantras in Vedas describe demerits of Polygamy. Rig Veda 10.105.8 compares existence of multiple wives with multiple worldly miseries. Rig Veda 10.101.11 states that a man with two wives is pressed from both sides and weeps like a horse that neighs when pressed from both sides by spokes while driving a chariot. Rig Veda 10.101.11 state that two wives make life aimless. Atharva Veda 3.18.2 prays that may a woman never face threat of another co-wife. "NO COPYRIGHTS" AND "INTENDED FOR FREE CIRCULATION"

12. The only mantra that skeptics try to give in favor of polygamy in Vedas is Rig Veda 8.19.36 that contains “Vadhoonaam” and “Satpati” words. However, “Vadhoo” does not mean bride here and instead means powers that provide happiness. “Satpati” means protector of good, just as “Bhoopati” means protector of earth. This is also evident from the Devata or Key subject of the Sukta in which this mantra comes – prayers for charity and donation (Daanastuti). The mantra means that Ishwar gives variety of powers to those who protect truth and good.

POLYGAMY IN RAMAYAN
While it is admitted that Dashrath practiced polygamy, but the essence of entire Ramayan is that polygamy leads to troubles. The polygamy of Dashrath is considered to be the cause of trouble and grief that everyone faced. Ram is considered “Maryada Purushottam” or the “Ideal Man” because he reestablished the Vedic norm of monogamy. Same was followed by all his brothers.

POLYGAMY IN MAHABHARAT
By the time of Mahabharat, the moral values of society had declined a lot. Thus none of the characters, apart from Krishna, is considered exemplary in Mahabharat. And that is exactly the reason why Krishna has been targeted the most for character assassination by a variety of forces. Mahabharat is an extremely adulterated text and is not taken as authentic in totality. The original text was much smaller and over a period of time it expanded to include a lot of things. Unlike Vedas, there was no mechanism to stop adulterations from it. However a close analysis easily exposes that certain popular stories in Mahabharat are pure myths. I give a list here:

WWW.AGNIVEER.COM

Krishna was wedded to none except Rukmini. The myth of 16000
wives came from a story where he liberated 16000 captive girls from Narkasur. The story itself is questionable. Further the story never states that Krishna married 16000 girls. It says he protected them, which is true if story is correct. had Krishna married 16000 of them, it would have taken him more than 10 years even at rate of 4 marriages a day as per the prevailing rituals!

Krishna was so strictly disciplined that he observed complete Brahmacharya for 12 years before planning to be a father. That is
why Krishna is such a role model for entire society. The narrator of Geeta had no time for anything except nation-building in those testing periods.

Krishna never had any love-games with any Gopi. These are figments
of imaginations which got popular during dark age of foreign rule when rulers of small states indulged in wasteful enjoyments after accepting supremacy of foreign rulers.

86

"NO COPYRIGHTS" AND "INTENDED FOR FREE CIRCULATION"

www.agniveer.com
Further the whole story of Radha is a figment of imagination.It exists only in Brahma Vaivart Puranwhich is another unscrupulous book like Bhavishya Puran that insults legends like Krishna and Ram. The concept of Radha grew popular only in very recent times during dark age of India when rulers of princely states were busy only in considering themselves Krishna incarnate and indulging into lustful activities by demeaning just a legendary Brahmachari character! Mahabharat does not contain these. Please read this excellent article by Dr Satya Pal Singh, Police Commissioner of Pune: Lord Krishna – an enlightening personality at http://www.satyavidya.org/component/content/article/50-awakening-ofnation/159-lord-krishna-an-enlightening-personality

POLYGAMY IN GENERAL
While polygamy was practiced by certain rulers at various points in time, it was restricted only to ruling class and never became a mainstream in larger population. That is why Hindus had no discomfort or objection to formal introduction of monogamy as a law after independence. All the great legends of Hinduism, whom many consider to be near God, were purely monogamous or brahmachari- Vishnu, Shankar, Ram, Lakshman, Bharat, Shatrughna, Hanuman and Krishna.

Thus it is a gross myth that Hinduism accepts Polygamy.

WWW.AGNIVEER.COM

On contrary, Vedas are unambiguous over recommendation of monogamy alone. The same has been the trend for general population and our role models.

If there is any philosophy that condemns polygamy and specifically demands monogamy, it is the Hindu Dharma based on noble precepts of Vedas.
Addendum: On an additional note, I would like to address a few sophism that Dr Zakir Naik indulges into to justify polygamy:

DR.NAIK’S REMARK Average life span of women is more than that of men.

87

"NO COPYRIGHTS" AND "INTENDED FOR FREE CIRCULATION"

www.agniveer.com
COMMENT: By this logic, polyandry (one wife- multiple husband) should be allowed. Because, on average, one wife would require more than 1 husband to cover her entire life!

DR.NAIK’S REMARK World female population is more than world male population. COMMENT: This contradicts previous point. If one looks at 2008 data of World Population as published by UN Statistics Division, there are 2% more males than females in the world! The same is also true for marriageable age discarding children and elders. Does he recommend Polyandry now? Before we get further, let us also look at the countries with worst gender ratio. You can view t he list at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_sex_ratio The table has facility to sort by fields. What we observe is that the top 9 countries with more men than women are all Muslim countries. Stricter the Islamic Law, more adverse the gender ratio. There are 2.74 times more men in UAE and 2.46 times in Qatar. India and Pakistan are also is not far off with their significant Muslim population!

WWW.AGNIVEER.COM

DR.NAIK’S REMARK Muslim women in due faith could bear a small personal loss to prevent a greater loss of letting other Muslim sisters becoming ‘public properties’.

COMMENT: We just saw the data above. Does Dr Naik recommend the inverse now? In civilized societies like Vedic Dharma, each women apart from one’s wife is viewed as mother, by default. The basic rule is “Matrivat Paradaareshu – All except wife are like my mother”. That is why the question of someone becoming public property does not arise. In wars, legends like Shivaji would bow to imprisoned women and call them mother! And in a society that respects women, the question of adverse gender ratio does not arise as is happening in conservative Muslim countries.

88

"NO COPYRIGHTS" AND "INTENDED FOR FREE CIRCULATION"

www.agniveer.com
What is important is use of word “property” for women. Dr Naik recommends that polygamy enables women to be private property rather than “public property” at small personal loss. This small loss is a great insult to entire womanhood. If sharing of husbands is haram, why is sharing of wife merely a small personal loss? Vedas do not discriminate at all between men and women and provide them equal rights and privileges in all matters including marriage.

Next he lists 4 reasons why polygamy is permitted but polyandry is not permitted:

DR.NAIK’S REMARK This will help identify father of the child! COMMENT: But now we have DNA testing available!

DR.NAIK’S REMARK

WWW.AGNIVEER.COM

Man by nature is more polygamous! COMMENT: What is the proof for this except that polyandry is stoned to death? Is this not a ploy to insult entire womanhood by justifying polygamy?

DR.NAIK’S REMARK It is biologically difficult for women to be polyandrous and rear children! COMMENT: This is again another shameless reason to justify keeping multiple wives and concubines, in name of religion and social service! "NO COPYRIGHTS" AND "INTENDED FOR FREE CIRCULATION"

89

www.agniveer.com
DR.NAIK’S REMARK High chance of acquiring sexual disease! COMMENT: On contrary, medical science proves that it is women who are more susceptible to contract such diseases from polygamous men than vice versa. Being a medical student sometime, Dr Naik should have verified at least this much before publication. Or perhaps he never got a chance to practice or get back to medical books!

Wise can decide themselves the mentality of this admirer of Osama Bin Laden. In summary, Polygamy is a malpractice, quite aptly condemned by the Vedas. Hinduism guided by Vedas and its role models has always emphasized on monogamy and self-control as the only way for humans. Efforts to justify polygamy, through whatever reasons, is an insult to entire womanhood. May such deviant minds introspect and come into the shade of Vedas. May they inculcate feeling of respect for entire Matru-Shakti.

b. being guinea pigs in hands of fanatics like Zakir Naik and we have full sympathy with them. We do not want to hurt their sentiments and would request them to refer any doubts with their experts and scholars, because our writings are primarily based on Islamic texts themselves. And if they want further discussions, kindly provide us details of their scholars’ qualifications who would like to debate us. This is exactly what Zakir Naik also demands, so we are not being unfair. We are simply being equal and just. In fact while he has categorically refused to debate us, we still look forward to debates. People can still debate each other through http://agniveer.com/forum/ and comments features on the site, but they should not expect response from Agniveer henceforth unless we feel that the person has sufficient calibre/ competence.

We are aware of such designs in various parts of the country. We have also accepted the challenge and would put our utmost efforts to spoil any evil design to damage the culture of Ram and Krishna. e. Our objective is not to hurt anyone’s sentiments or denigrate anyone’s belief system. Our objective is merely to defend and propagate truth and expose whatever is false. So if someone feels we are guilty of spreading hatred, we are only as much guilty as Galileo or Copernicus who questioned the false beliefs of Church. f. We have deepest love for all human beings. If we criticize Islam, it is only out of compassion for our Muslim brothers and sisters. Our arguments are purely based on facts and logic, and we are completely against use of any violent or deceitful means of influencing anyone. So while we severely condemn the violent means in which Islam was spread in Indian subcontinent, we also do not want to avenge it through violent means. g. We consider our Muslim brothers and sisters to share the same ancestry as us. So there is no way we can think of harming them. But to provide them with true perspectives of their true Dharma and the false trap in which they have fallen is our highest Dharma, because it has strong impact on future of humanity. h. We believe in Freedom of Belief. So while we provide strongest reasons and facts to Muslims to switch back to the original Dharma, we respect their freedom of belief and are against use of any illegal, violent, threatening or unethical means to convince them. Our motto is Satyameva Jayate. i. We understand that Zakir Naik is merely a stooge and what lies hidden behind him is the whole cartel of sinister designs. We say so because "NO COPYRIGHTS" AND "INTENDED FOR FREE CIRCULATION"

many terrorists swear in name of Zakir Naik, and Zakir Naik openly defends Osama and states that all non-Muslims will burn in hell forever. Thus our enmity is not against Zakir Naik or his followers. Our enmity is against those forces who promote terrorism, non-tolerance and blind faiths through threat of Hell. We shall continue to keep exposing all that is false, not only in modern Islam of Zakir Naik, but also in other dogmas in time to come. And hope that truth shall prevail, with peace, unity and brotherhood! Kindly review the debate here.-http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QZ-
