If India is a brahminic country , why would it put Ashoka Chakra (a buddhist symbol) in center of its flag ?


Recommended Posts

Ashoka Chakra is a representation of Dhammachakra (a buddhist icon) . Ashoka Chakra is related to emperor Ashoka who was a violent king who lived more than 2000 years ago and conquered most of india from kashmir to far south and from bangladesh to afghanistan.

He did cruel wars to achieve this . Not any empire in india except mughals have conquered so much territory. 

But Ashoka was a cruel man . He had a torture chamber called "Ashoka's hell" to torture saintly people , esp buddhist monks.

However he later converted to buddhism and threw his sword near patliputra (modern day patna sahib) and gave up all violence. From then he became a saintly man and erected ashoka pillars with ashoka chakras and the "4-direction facing lions" on top of those pillars . These 4-lions are now icon of indian govt btw.

 

So the question is if we claim India is a baahman vaad country, then why would they adopt Ashoka's buddhist logos like the 4-direction-4-lions and ashoka chakra. Shouldn't they have adopted something like swastika or om.

One possible answer to this is Ambedkar's conversion to buddhism . He was also the original architect of Indian constitution . It is clear Ambedkar hated hinduism for its brahminism and oppression of his lower caste people and wanted some other -- preferably dharmic religion to convert to . Sikhi was on the table, but for some reason he and his millions of followers chose Buddhism and then burnt manusmriti (brahmin law book , akin to sharia) on the same day . 

Imagine .... just imagine ... if he would have chosen sikhi, khanda might have been at center of indian flag today . Not that I dream of sikhi dominion on indian land, but still its a point to think of .

reason why they chose Buddhism is because they would have lost quota system in education and workplaces if they went to sikhi although it is retold that it was purely OUR fault for refusing them ...it was all a brahmin ploy  to get them to stay controlled as they considered it easier to reconvert budhhists than Guruji ke sher . Which is 100 percent true , which bird who has felt freedom would willingly go into a cage ? Buddhism has loads of mythologies based on various goddesses and demons etc  and is very pacificist , home abandoning, hiding away from the world  like hindu dharam .

Ashoka is their idol purely because he had such a huge empire , these guys idolise evil as long as it gets the jobs done , remember how the brahmins dismantled Ashoka's buddhism by the sword and torch too. (that's why they loved The Angrez and aspire to monkey them.)

basically the hindus specifically Brahmins embrace the invaders and act subservient whilst plotting to overthrow/diminish those same trusting fools . history has numerous examples  and it was also illustrated in Padmavat also .

I was actually going to make a topic on the ashoka empire aswell as the general history of India. 

What I dont get is. 

India is rich in culture and heritage dating back to over 5000 years. The indus valley had one of the earliest civilisations with a glorious and heritage. The indus valley ect. 

Yet do we ever hear about all this interesting history and heritage of India? 

All we are bombarded with is relative recent history of india dating back only 400 years ago with the mughals. 

Its like everything indian is about mughals. Im more interested in the real history of india. Then some mughali mullahs.

The ashoka symbols are far more fascinating to me then some red fort or taj mahal that was built recently. 

The real heritage of india is what they should focus on more. then arabic filth and architecture that was recent history which they puzzling still love.

If I wanted to learn about arabic culture I would go to arabstan not India.

We should be proud of our heritage of India. The land of elephant and tiger. With rivers and mountains. 

Not mughali food such as biriyani. 

Lets get back to our real heritage and roots! Its like Indians have no culture of their own so they cling on to arabic culture and pass it off as indian. 

Indians held of the mighty alaxender army and sent them packing.

Ashoka is grandson of Chandra gupta Maurya so he inherited a massive empire and then expanded it , both were Jaini not Hindu (brahmivadi) per se

Chandra Gupta renounced his empire to become a monk and the amount of blood spilt by his grandson puts paid to the myth that Jains are peaceful nonagressive .same with Buddhists . He did not control the whole of India there were areas which stayed under local control in Tamil Nadu and the southern states but let that not get in the way of building an icon for 'akhand Bharat' .
truth of the 'muslim' architecture etc is it is actually PERSIAN from pre arab invasion times they just were patronised by the Turks to produce this art and had it relabelled under Islamic labels ...so it is art developed in Zoharastrian era and taken over by the tent dwellers , there is no shame in acknowledging its beauty . I think of Red fort as place of our victories not of mughals ...

these people have no feeling towards the environment or wildlife save a few species which are 'tokens' of gods/goddesses , they have more feeling for a nonexistant river than the millions who are thirsting for water in Punjab . Punjabis held Alexander in check remember that ...

Because of history being dominated by Maurya vansh , a jain/buddhist family this doesn't suit the agenda of current majority faith group (shouldn't really call them that since they disregard a large proportion of the population as non hindu except for owning and exploiting them) so they do not want to promote it , they would rather use fear of the alien culture of muslim to keep people locked into following the brahmin-led agenda  . Ironic since they too are aliens and want to claim aryan links yet deny them when confronted with the fact that means they too are not of the soil .

(Supplied) Next Short Url https://arab.news/wuwv4 Updated 08 May 2021 ZAYNAB KHOJJI May 07, 202118:08 57471               “I am just an ordinary individual and for me to be blessed with such an opportunity is humbling,” Rahman said Last year, he performed the adhan in Canary Wharf, the heart of London’s financial district LONDON: A British-Muslim entrepreneur serenaded London’s Tower Bridge with the adhan as the sun set over the British landmark on the last Friday of Ramadan 2021.  Kazi Shafiqur Rahman, 35, delivered the adhan in the style of the Grand Mosque’s head muezzin, Sheikh Ali Ahmad Mulla, wearing a white thobe and Saudi ghutra on Friday as part of an interfaith virtual iftar. It is a style that he has perfected since childhood and has fueled the British-Bangladeshi’s passion for performing the adhan in public.  Mulla has been a muezzin at the Grand Mosque since 1975 and his voice is recognized by Muslims worldwide regardless of whether they have visited Makkah. The adhan at Tower Bridge marked the end of an iftar hosted by Tower Hamlets Homes, the East London Mosque & London Muslim Center and Tower Hamlets Interfaith Forum. Rahman spoke of the huge satisfaction he gets from delivering the adhan in public and how grateful he felt for being given the opportunity to deliver one from Tower Bridge.                     Volume 90%             “I am just an ordinary individual and for me to be blessed with such an opportunity is humbling,” he said. Although Rahman has been performing the adhan in mosques and at events for more than two decades, this is the second time he had delivered it at an iconic London location. Last year, he performed the adhan in the heart of London’s financial district, Canary Wharf, and the video of his performance was watched millions of times. Rahman added he hopes to deliver the adhan at “other global iconic locations such as the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi. “After delivering the adhan in Canary Wharf last year, I realized that the call to prayer is such a strong message and that I was sending it out across the world via social media,” Rahman said.   “It had such a huge reach even on LinkedIn, and many non-Muslims said how mesmerizing they found the adhan, and were asking about what it actually was,” he added. Rahman said he was initially shocked at the amount of traction the video of last year’s adhan received. “But then I realized that this is the word of God and the call to prayer and therefore it’s bound to reach that many people,” he said.  “The impact of last year’s adhan was just unbelievable. The video reached millions of viewers.” Ahead of performing the adhan at Tower Bridge, Rahman told Arab News he was nervous as he wanted to live up to last year’s performance.  “I don’t want it to go wrong and I want to live up to expectations. However, I am also reminding myself to do this for the sake of God only. With social media, it’s easy to get sidetracked and think about the traction that this delivery of the adhan will get. But that shouldn’t be my intention. I keep reminding myself that I am doing it for the sake of God and for Him alone.” London-based Rahman said he thanks God for giving him this opportunity and a melodious voice.   “I am just an ordinary person but I feel like God has favored me with such a voice and such an opportunity, both of which I am grateful for. It gives me a sense of satisfaction that the adhan I am delivering is being appreciated all around the world. It makes me praise God even more.”
    • All these questions seem to be fine and normal to an extent for anyone who does not have an idea of what sikhee is or about. Sikhee is a path where a sikh/disciple is initiated into the reality of spirituality by Guru Jee, where the soul becomes fully aware of its limitations and the full powers of Guru Jee to be ferried across the Bhavsagar. Through Gurbani we come to know the supreme importance of Guru Jee for a soul´s salvation so to say. As mentioned and seen above in the words of Guru Jee where He tells us:  Bin Satgur kinaay na paayo Bin Satgur kinnay na paaya. Here it is obvious for us, that without the sole grace and help from Guru Jee for the individual sikh/disciple/soul, it is impossible to realize and reach Him, it is just an impossible task, howsoever one may try thousands of other tricks and methods. By these other methods, one may at most reach Swarg, Brahm Lok, Baikunth the abode of Vishnu Jee, or Shivpuri the abode of Mahadev Shiv Shankar, but not Sach Khand the ultimate and Highest realm where Waheguru Akal Purukh permanent abode is. For Sach Khand we need Guru Jee. Now as per Bani, again to be under the shelter of Guru Jee, is a matter of being blessed. In this respect the pure paviter Bani tells us:  bhoolay marag jinaay bataaya, aisa Satgur wadbhagee paiyaa. Everbody is a lost soul wandering in ignorance, and it is only by great good fortune/blessings, that one comes into contact with Guru Jee and is ferried across. In this respect, the Bani can not be more clear nor more expressive. To be under the shelter of Guru Jee, is not a matter of induction or telling somebody do this or that, and so on, but, it is a matter of apaar kirpa from Waheguru Himself, who puts us or anybody He so wants, under Guru Jee´s protection. So we must bear in mind, it matters not what one may do, but unless one follows the teachings of Guru Jee and devotedly gives oneself to Him, we will never be able to cross the Mahabhavsagar. Let us not worry for others, for that alone will happen, what is written in his/her destiny as per His hukum. For example Prithi Chand was the elder son of Guru Sahiban, yet he did not recognize Him as Waheguru´s swaroop, though he had Their darshan right from childhood. So you see inspite of being so near Guru Jee, if one is not destined so, one will never acept Guru Jee, no matter if a hundred or hundred million people tell you to do so, nothing wil happen. So just as by saying I want to go to Canada and will do this or that, one will not ever reach there. To reach Canada, we need a mode of transport be it by air or sea from India for example. So if our intention is to go to Canada, we have to first look for that mode of transport, otherwise just not possible. In a similar way, if we know through Gurbani that without Guru Jee I will never ever achieve or reach Him, let us ask ourselves, am I doing any such thing to be guided back by Guru Jee by implicitly follow His teachings, or is that I am doing what I see others do and take that for real to reach Waheguru... That is really important, for as long as we are not under His shelter, as per Gurbani we will never ever meet our beloved Waheguru Akal Purukh. Dhan Guru Sree Ram Das Maharaj tells us in Raag Vadhans: Dhan dhan Satgur Purukh Niranjan, jit mil Har Nam dhiyai. Which means: Great and good is Satguru, who is verily God Himself, and by meeting Him I have practised the "Name" of the Almighty. Such is the apaar mahima of Guru Jee.
