BJP’s proposal: Can Income Tax be really abolished in India?

New Delhi: The BJP is seriously planning to promise sweeping several tax reforms in its Lok Sabha manifesto. It serves two purposes. Stop the exodus of middle class and upper middle class voters to the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and give an impression that the party is for a transparent taxation.

It hopes that the people would vote for the BJP if the party presents a detailed, feasible plan.
According to a report in ‘The Hindu’ one of the several tax reform proposals before the BJP Parliamentary Board recommends abolition of the more than 30 local, state and Central level taxes levied at present. The proposal recommends that from the present tax system only import duties should be retained.
BJP’s proposal: Can Income Tax be really abolished in India?

The proposal is to replace the present tax system with a single two per cent levy per receipt in bank accounts.
#2014 lok sabha elections #income tax #flat tax #bjp
The proposal received by former BJP president Nitin Gadkari from a Pune-based tax research outfit recommends replacing the present tax system with a single two per cent levy per receipt in bank accounts.
BJP’s calculations show that the two per cent tax will yield Rs 40,00,000 crore. But some economist say the yield would be just Rs 14,00,000 crore. But, it will still be much higher than the Centre’s total tax revenue, which was just Rs 10,38,037 crore in the current financial year.

What is the BJP’s proposal:
Ramdev has proposed abolition of Income Tax. He says if Narendra Modi becomes the PM, it can happen. Former BJP president Nitin Gadkari wants to come out with a radical tax reforms proposal that will prevent the voters from supporting the AAP.
The BJP’s vision document – 2025 which will be released before the Lok Sabha elections promises abolition of Income Tax, Sales Tax and Excise Taxes. It proposes a flat banking transaction tax.
It proposes abolition of Income Tax, Sales Tax and Excise Tax. Proposes a flat two per cent banking transaction tax. The complete modalities of the system is yet to be released by the BJP.
The BJP argues that even if the government charges just two per cent banking transaction, it will fetch over Rs 15 lakh crore annually instead of the combined current earnings of Rs 10 lakh crore.
For example: A person who earns Rs 10 Lakh a year, pays Rs 20, 000 tax every year. He/she won’t be taxed for any other transaction.
A person, who earns Rs 10 crore, pays Rs 20 lakh a year, if there is no higher bracketing system.
For and against the idea:
Nitin Gadkari and Dr. Subramanian Swamy, who heads a sub-panel drafting the party’s vision document on economic issues are backing it. But, former finance minister Yashwant Sinha and Arun Jaitley are not impressed by the idea. They want rationalisation of tax system. They feel that the flat tax will help the rich more. They argue that the rich and the poor can’t be taxed at the same rate.
What is the gray area:
In India the banking transaction is just 20 per cent. Rest is in the form of cash. BJP hopes that the flat tax will encourage the people to do more and more bank transactions. It argues that it will gradually finish the black money.
What is flat tax:
A system that applies the same tax rate to every taxpayer regardless of income bracket is called flat tax. A flat tax applies the same tax rate to all taxpayers, with no deductions or exemptions allowed.
Supporters of a flat tax system propose that it would give taxpayers incentive to earn more because they would not be penalised with a higher tax bracket or conceal the real income. In addition, supporters argue that a flat tax system is fairer because it imposed the tax on all taxpayers regardless of income.
How it works in other countries:
In a progressive tax system, individuals who make more money are taxed at a higher rate. Many of the countries that have imposed a flat tax rate system on individuals and businesses, including Estonia, Lithuania and Latvia, have experienced economic growth since adopting flat tax rate policies.
In the United States, a progressive-rate tax system is used. In 2010, for example, people who earned up to $8,375 fell into the 10 per cent tax bracket; people who earned greater than $373,650 fell into the 35 per cent tax bracket.
Is it feasible:
Some experts feel that it is both feasible and desirable. FICCI President Siddarth Birla describes it as aspirational. Another expert argues that it has worked many countries and there should be no reason to worry that it may not work in India.
However, the experts caution that the flat tax should be thoroughly examined before replacing the old taxation system with it.
Tax experts and industrialists say that it will reduce corruption and save the people from harassment. Even Ernst and Young argues that it is feasible. Some say instead of flat tax, the pending Goods and Services Tax (GST) proposal should be accepted.
Countries with no Income Tax:
United Arab Emirates
Cayman Islands
The Bahamas
Saudi Arabia
Brunei Darussalam

Property Tax–An Unreasonable Unjustifiable Destructive Burden

Majority of our property tax go’s into politician’s pockets. Property tax is a unnecessary made up tax by the government. In reality, some homeowners, particularly retirees, have little or no income. Some depend solely on  security benefits. Consequently, many have to take out loans to pay property taxes, thereby becoming more exposed to home-forfeiture. Despite their difficulties, they are unconscionably burdened annually with property taxes . This unjustifiable tax must be abolished.

If at all the property tax should be a must than it should be included in the quarterly water and sewerage bills in easy instalments. This will neither burden nor bother the consumer.


History of India – Dravidians

1. Vedas, Puranas, Shastras, Ramayana & Mahabarata etc.. are ALL purely dravidian texts. All cities/towns are found (& named the same way) in South India/Lanka. Hastinapuram (Andhra) Pandavapura, Kishkinda & Vatapi (Karnataka), Kansapuram, Kasipuram, Srivaikuntam, Madurai (land of nectar), Kailasapuram, Sivakasi, ayottipatinam (ayodhya), Gangavathi etc..
2. for south dravidian kings, north/Vadaku represented – North Karnataka & Andhra. Vindhyas were the Himalayas in ancient texts, they had no visibility beyond this. Agasthiyar Hills officially named as such are down south & is NOT the vindyas. Kalidasa was in the court of Vikramditya – Kannada King. Hastinapuram & Kasipuram are in current Andhra – North of tamil nadu.

BARATAVARSHA IS THE LAND FROM VINDHYAS TO KERALA DOWN SOUTH – land locked kingdown with Lanka controlling all sea routes. thats why south dravidians wanted to defeat him & reduce their influence on sea routes. so thats why only the Lanka version goes to Greece (HOMER’S ILLIAD – TROY IS LANKA) & Ramayana version goes to South east asia & other countries. RAMAYANA DID NOT & COULD NOT HAVE GONE TO GREECE THROUGH NORTH INDIA/CENTRAL ASIAN ETC.. GIVEN THE MANY HOSTILE KINGDOMS IN BETWEEN.

The sinister side of Sufism

It is therefore time we studied the history of Sufis, tried to track the narrative of their coming to India and analyzed their explicit missionary role in promoting conversions to Islam. More importantly, it needs to be assessed how did the Sufis conduct themselves during reckless killings and plunders by the Muslim invaders? Did they object to the senseless mass killings and try to prevent unremitting plunder of Hindu temples and innocent masses? Did the Sufis ever object to the capture of helpless men and women as slaves and the use of the latter as objects of carnal pleasure? These are some of the questions to which answers have to be found by every genuine student of Indian history.

The sinister side of Sufism.

The other side of sufism

by Ranbir Singh

Sufism is contrasted with more intolerant strains of Islam, notably that advocating jihad, proscribing of dancing and music, intolerance towards the kuffar, and strict interpretation of sharia. Unlike the stern teachings found within Wahhabism in Saudi Arabia or the Shia strain in Iran , Sufi Islam holds a more mystical approach in which the ego is purified and cleansed through esoteric knowledge of a loving supreme deity. This inner journey seeks self-improvement through devotional exercises which not only allow but often insist on music and even dancing as a mean to advance spirituality. The results have been impressive because to this day humanity struggled to create anything more uplifting than the poetry of Ibn Arabi and Rumi. Sufi compositions remain the most beautiful of all creations from Islamic civilisation.

With the increasingly negative image given to Islam through the media Sufism is held up not only as the alternative but often the original model before the faith was corrupted by intolerant strains of Salafism and Khomeinism. This is very similar to the emphasis given to the Islamic contribution to western civilisation from everything to science and mathematics, to foodstuffs like the lemon. Sufism has indeed come under increasing pressure in Iran where its centres of worship have been demolished and its adherents arrested.

With its decentralised and mystical approach Sufism is an anathema to Saudi Arabia ’s Wahhabis and their more extreme Salafi offspring. Through petrodollars the Sufism of Pakistan has become deemed as un-Islamic event though Bulleh Shah, Waris Shah and Madho Lal Hussain were figures of great respect in South Asian Islam. The same pressure is now being placed on analogous traditions such as that of the marabouts in West Africa. But Sufism also felt the wrath of the modernist secular reforms of Ataturk as he strove to build a European style state on the ashes of the defeated and discredited Ottoman Empire .

Sufism however does not describe a single set of doctrines but a disparate set of spiritual practices and mystical techniques which added a new dimension to Islam. In this the Sufi masters imbibed ancient spiritual traditions of the Greeks, Jews, Zarathustrians and Hindus which predated Islam. Nevertheless Sufis could be as fanatic as any mullah or army on the march of jihad. The history of Islam in South Asia demonstrates this very clearly, that they acted as sappers and miners for the colonialism which was devastating ancient civilisations without mercy.

The Chishtiyya school was foisted on India by Muin-ud-din who had settled down in Ajmer in the twelfth century and converted some Hindus to act as his agents. He then made special demands from Prithvi Raj Chauhan and when they were ignored he immediately invited Muhammad Ghuri to invade and despoil the land in the name of Islam. Literature on the true fanatic nature of Sufis such as that of the Chisti order abound. Sculpted stones, apparently from a Hindu temple, are incorporated in the Buland Darwãza of Muin-ud-din’s shrine and his tomb is built over a series of cellars which may have formed part of an earlier temple. A tradition, first recorded in the ‘Anis al-Arwãh, suggests that the Sandal Khãna is built on the site of Shãdî Dev’s temple. Four Islamic mystics namely Muin-ud-din  (d. 1233 in Ajmer ), Qutubuddin (d. 1236 in Delhi ), Nizamuddin (d.1335 in Delhi ) and Fariduddin (d.1265 in Pattan now in Pakistan ) accompanied the Islamic invaders in India . All of them were from the Chistiya order of Islamic mysticism.

Amir Khusru was one of the foremost disciples of Nizam-ud-din Awliya of Delhi who is counted among the five great sufis of the Chishtiyya school. He is himself regarded as an outstanding sufi on whose mazar in Delhi urs is held every year. His Hindi verses are cited as a proof positive of his love for the land of his birth. The great poet, sufi and artist Amir Khusro, full name Muhammad Hassan Yaminuddin (1253-1325) said to be a great human being because, he was the father of Qawwali, and he is even said to have invented the sitar and tabla, he loved India, and of course was tolerant and mystical.

Yet in his own words he glorified how Islamic hordes had despoiled India , sacking the infidel Hindu shrines for the glory of the true faith, saturated the land with the blood of idol-worshippers, and jizya imposed. Khusro lamented that the sultans had adopted the Hanafi code because it allowed them to categorise Hindus as dhimmis; which meant a third-class existence as opposed to outright extermination. The Sufi preacher Sayyid Ali Hamdani came from Hamdan in fourteenth century to Kasmir where after making converts made moved to stop Hindus building temples and restrict their religious practices as they were forced into dhimmi status, including payment of jizya.

Sufis fully supported the oppression and often forcible conversion of Hindus to Islam, accepting the gifts of adolescent boys and young women to their khanqahs and dargahs. Dara Shikoh, eldest son of Shah Jahan and rightful heir to the Mughal throne was perhaps the exception in trying to marry mysticism within Islam and Hinduism, such as translating the Upanishads into Persian. Of course he was killed by his younger brother Aurangzeb who was himself a Sufi, a follower of the Naqshbandi-Mujaddidi method and disciple of Khwaja Muhammad Masoom, the third son and successor of the founder of Mujaddidi order Shaykh Ahmad Sirhindi. That shaykh sent his fifth son, Khwaja Saif ad-Din Sirhindi, to instruct Aurangzeb in the strict application of sharia law such as banning musical instruments.

Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb

Many other famous Sufis also revered Aurangzeb, including the Punjab Sufi Sultan Bahu who wrote ‘Aurang-i-Shahi’ praising the emperor as a just ruler. Now Aurangzeb or Alamgir is notorious in history as the Mughal who tried to annihilate Hinduism completely, destroying temples and suppressing religious practices. Guru Tegh Bahadur and his two close companions Bhai Matti Das and Bhai Fateh Das were executed for refusing to convert to Islam. Aurangzeb’s tomb is in Khuldabad in Maharashtra within the courtyard of the shrine of the Sufi saint Shaikh Burham-u’d-din Gharib.

This association of the most fanatic and intolerant of Mughal emperors with Sufism will shock many who have been fed the belief that all Sufis were purveyors of a soft version of Islam. But the Naqshabandis had always stood for strict interpretation of sharia law. Khwaja Mohammad Baqi Billah Berang whose tomb is in Delhi introduced Naqshbandi order in India and due to common Turkic origins with the Mughal invaders this Sufi order always remained steadfast in its political loyalty right from the invasions of Babar.

His grandson Akbar is often portrayed as a tolerant ruler. Yet it was Akbar who made an annual pilgrimage to the Dargah of Muin-ud-din Chishti at Ajmer as he believed it was through the blessings of the Chishti saint through which he begot a son. Yet Muin-ud-din was of course the foremost symbol of Islam’s ceaseless war on Hinduism. Akbar was however more pragmatic than most which explains practical steps to involve powerful Hindu groups such as the Rajputs into becoming pillars for Mughal rule, such as abolishing the jizya poll tax. This of course earned the wrath of many, including the Sufis.

The mission of Shaikh Sirhindi (1564-1624) was to purify Islam from the influence of Akbar. He proclaimed himself the Mujaddid-i-alf-i-sãnî, ‘renovator of the second millennium of Islam’ and his Maktûbãt-i-Imãm Rabbãnî have been collected and published in three volumes. n letter No. 163 he wrote: “The honour of Islam lies in insulting kufr and kafirs. One who respects the kafirs dishonours the Muslims… The real purpose of levying jiziya on them is to humiliate them to such an extent that they may not be able to dress well and to live in grandeur. They should constantly remain terrified and trembling. It is intended to hold them under contempt and to uphold the honour and might of Islam.”

In Letter No. 81 he said: “Cow-sacrifice in India is the noblest of Islamic practices. The kafirs may probably agree to pay jiziya but they shall never concede to cow-sacrifice.” After Guru Arjun Deva had been tortured and done to death by Jahangir, he wrote in letter No. 193 that “the execution of the accursed kafir of Gobindwal is an important achievement and is the cause of the great defeat of the Hindus.” Sirhindi viewed Hindu mystics like Guru Nanak and Sant Kabir despicable, as they did not follow Sharia, he wanted to encourage the sacrifice of cows and revelled in the execution of Guru Arjun Dev.

Shah Waliullah, a prominent Muslim thinker of 18th century and the son of Shah Abdur Rahim, a Sufi who was employed by Aurangzeb for compiling the Fatawa-i-Alamgiri. This Sufi fanatic was of the Naqshabandi order and elevated Mahmud Ghuri as the greatest figure in Islam after the four righteous caliphs. No mention of Rumi here. Wali Ullah invigorated the practice of his Naqshbandi Sufi order, synthesising the disciplines of the three major Sufi orders namely Qadari, Chisti and Naqshbandi with a view to uniting the Muslim society against the Hindus.

Like Shaikh Ahmad Sirhind, he was also against the presence of Hindu employees in the administration of Muslim rulers as he viewed it harmful to the purity of Islam. His attempt was to purify Islam from the spiritual influence of Hinduism. In this context he invited Ahmad Shah Abdali to lead an Afghan invasion into India to save Islam from the infidel Hindus. He was therefore not open to the spiritual tradition of local Hindus in any form.

Sayed Ahmad Barelvi (1786-1831) was a disciple of Waliullah’s son, Abd al Aziz, and continued the tradition of by launching armed jihad with a view to restoring Darul-Islam but was killed in the battle of Balkot against Maharaja Ranjit Singh. Indian Muslims continue to regard him as martyr for the cause of Islam. Karamat Ali, a disciple of Sayed Ahmad Barelavi further developed the ideology for purifying Islam from the influences of Hindu custom and tradition.

Viewed in this historical perspective it is not only easy to see past the politically correct whitewash of Sufism but also realise that Sufis were merely a long line in salesmen for an intolerant belief system. There is therefore no real contrast between the aforementioned Sufi preachers and schools of thought, and that of more modern ideologies as represented by Wahhabism and Salafism in Sunni Islam, or Khomeinism among the Shia.

Indeed with modern technology and the organs of a modern state funded by petrodollars, media savviness and sophisticated use of social networking the neo-imperialist forms of Islam are merely doing what was beyond the reach of the Sufis.

While the compositions of Rumi and Ibn Arabi remain an inspiration to all humanity, they like the much-vaunted Islamic contributions to science were in many ways an exception, a temporary flickering light enveloped in uncompromising darkness. As Averroes (Ibn Rushd) discovered when asked to explain his knowledge of the heavens, and froze in terror because his scientific discoveries would contradict theological dogma, the mystical aspects in Islam had more to do with the legacy of civilisations which had been crushed underfoot than anything within the one true faith.

As the poetry of Rumi and Ibn Arabi demonstrate the spirit of antiquity had yet to be fully snuffed out. Freethinkers could still survive for now without being deemed infidels and heretics. It is that spirit which needs to be recaptured not the reconstruction of some non-existent past simply because the truth about Sufism is to inconvenient.

Who are the saints and sages of ancient world ? 

Early education in India commenced under the supervision of a guru. Initially, education was open to all and seen as one of the methods to achieve Moksha, or enlightenment. Education in India in its traditional form was closely related to religion. In India philosophical enquiries were carried out in the inner world.  Indian sages, called Rishis, developed special techniques of transcending the senses and the ordinary mind, collectively and  delved deep into the depths of consciousness and discovered important truths about the true nature of man and the universe. Thus in ancient India, philosophy and religion complemented each other.  This integral religious philosophy or Education was called Vedanta.

Outside the religious framework, kings and princes were educated in the arts and sciences related to government: politics ,  economics , philosophy, and historical traditions

With the advent of Islam in India the traditional methods of education increasingly came under Islamic influence. Pre-Mughal rulers such as Qutb-ud-din Aybak and other Muslim rulers initiated institutions which imparted religious knowledge. Scholars such as Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya and Hazrat Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti became prominent educators and established Islamic monasteries.

Hazrat Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti introduced and established the Chishti Order of Sufism in the Indian subcontinent. The initial spiritual chain or silsila of the Chishti order in India, comprising Moinuddin Chishti,Qutbuddin Bakhtiar KakiFariduddin Ganjshakar and Nizamuddin Auliya, each successive person being the disciple of the previous, constitutes the great Sufi saints of Indian history

Islamic institution of education in India included traditional madrassas and maktabs which taught grammar, philosophy, mathematics, and law influenced by the Greek traditions inherited by Persia and the Middle East before Islam spread from these regions into India.

Eventually while the coming of the Europeans later bought western education to colonial India the traditional system decayed. British education became solidified into India as missionary schools were established during the 1820s. These schools taught the students the knowledge of the outer world.

The teachers of ancient Schools are today known as the Saints in Hindus and Muslims. In short they were teachers who taught the disciples or students. They were no saints or enlightened. We have been made to believe that they were great souls who walked the earth

The Misconception

The conception of a human fetus through the deposits in the centers is a supernatural dwell in the physical body coordinating all the countless functions we perform in life, such as walking, talking, eating, sleeping, working, playing, etc.
Moreover it provides ego, intellect and will, and generates every function; process and event associated with the dark and execute this existence. Our body together before birth holds it together and let it decompose and infuses them in the physical body. At this point, our entire life is deliberately reactivated, to make the effect upon us known as Self-realization.

The evolution of each is mirrored by this creative swing into perception of duality and ignorance while reactivation swings back to cosmic knowledge. According to evolution a journey of only about three feet from the base of the spine to the top of the head estimated a thousand years to accomplish the task. Later you move out of a world which is totally different from our modified fact that called as Kundalini, a state which may be demonstrated of a 180- degree switch in the chakras entangled in the illusion of the transformation of God into human being, instigated by God.

our complex network of minute astral tubes called nadis, through which our ignorance of over many lifetimes, become increasingly clogged with our own toxins caused by unhealthful diet, drugs, tobacco, alcohol, nervous tension, etc., . removed, in order to purify our instrument thus preventing a possibly dangerous psychic overload.

The only way these impurities can be removed from is through burning; they must be burned away. By far the hottest and most effective fire in the human body is the self, and can systematically work from inward, resulting from a movement of daily cleansing.

A concealed illness is rooted out and eliminated from the system forever. As blockages are burned away, they often overstress briefly before becoming consumed in fire. If the obstacle is suddenly racing wildly it may become hot that do us harm. The closer the process the more we find our daily life becoming a reflection of this Three-Foot Journey.

The spiral spine, intersecting all the way up to the top is a representation of the negative that goes inside us into the actual pathway and eventually merge inside us. Lying coiled at the base of the spine, unleash its power upward, piercing and stimulating along the way. As the plane of existence become “unknown” to us we gradually find our own force reached the core. The Creation, clog our instrument and separates our own being and tells us, it’s our karma leaving humanity in a real fix, for no one ever reach full perfection…. humankind forever deprived of having Realized on earth long enough to share the tragic experience — If we bear in mind the misconception that like kings we reside upon garbage dumps; dressed in royal robes, have gone naked or even smeared bodies with filth material wealth and yet in the possession of a great pythons.

The scriptures perfected in filth and represent the highest evolutionary ancient texts, for each is one cycle. All the gods and goddesses viewed as representations of certain power filled with the very source of power.
We all know exactly one spark in a life mysterious and full of unknowns; suddenly turn the street suffering from the most miserable affliction ever visited upon humankind. The disease is called Ignorance—ignorance of the true nature of our own being and the consciousness within us veiled. The powerful pierce all the veils, penetrating right to the essence of everything. It’s really destiny carried forward into future lives.

Kedarnath to Kashmir

This week’s flood in Kashmir, the worst in half a century, has left a trail of devastation so extensive that from the aerial pictures it is hard to imagine there was ever life below the watery landscape. With river embankments breached, agriculture eroded, cities flooded, roads and bridges washed away, the flood was too devastating a natural act to be easily averted by manmade defences. Obviously the government’s initial task is to save lives. But beyond the relief efforts, the eventual thinking on rebuilding would require a whole new environmental turn. Future construction in the state would need to take into account existing flood plains, earthquake possibilities, and stiff regulations for building in river valleys and on mountain slopes.

As the monsoon progressed across the country, other stories of distress were cited: 40 killed in a landslide in Pune, 30 trapped under building debris in Mumbai, villages destroyed in flash floods in Uttarakhand, Bihar and Assam. These are all clear and ominous signs that nature becomes destructive when abused, indeed when increasing habitation in fragile ecologies reaches saturation point.

Travel anywhere in the mountains in North or South India, and one sees roads tear away large swathes of hillsides, leaving exposed gashes of earth; new housing developments have been made in imitation of city houses. In places remote and inaccessible, hotels called Himalayan Heights and Valley View rise five to six storeys; apartment blocks, even higher, are placed on mountain peaks and sold as ‘your home in the hills’ by local builders. In Coonoor and Ooty, tea and cardamom estates are converted to luxury housing for residents of nearby Bangalore and Chennai. A similar story is repeated along the coastline. Delhi and Mumbai’s elite have built beach cottages in Goa and Kerala, an extravagant practice of owning second homes in a country where more than half its population doesn’t have the first. Why are India’s most precious preserves of natural environment being so viciously plundered and sold? Why do major tragedies occur with such regularity in fragile, environmentally-sensitive regions? Indeed why are land and building regulations lax — or missing — in places that need stringent development controls.

Enter any of the valleys along Himachal’s urban belt, in Shimla or Manali; or drive along the river in Garhwal to its religious sites, and the destructive power of overbuilding is visible everywhere. Vast stretches of land around old cores of habitation are stuffed with ramshackle brick and plaster construction, jammed against each other in a claustrophobic compaction, leaving little or no space for green. What was once sloped, forested mountain terrain is now artificially flattened ground and a desolate repetition of Delhi’s Paharganj. Sadly, the Kashmir flood is a grim reminder of a similar tragedy at Kedarnath. More than a year after the disaster, illegal construction along the riverbank continues. No action has been taken on the safety recommendations of the Geological Survey to build riverbed walls, remove buildings and relocate hundreds of villages from within flood-prone areas. Moreover, the government continues to treat religious pilgrimage as just another form of tourism. By opening up roads and hotels, building helipads to Badrinath and Gangotri, it makes no distinction between a family vacation and a religious pilgrimage. The importance of physical ardour and the personal devotion required for any pilgrimage can help limit numbers and restore religious sites to their former pristine state. But torn between the revenue generated by mass unregulated tourism and people’s safety, the Uttarakhand government continues to vacillate, and hope that nature will be kind this year.

Unfortunately, when places are buckling under the pressure of overbuilding, there is still no debate on local bye-laws or revision of land policy. Some years ago, when a landslide caused a section of Nainital’s hill to collapse, instead of seeking alternatives, the government merely sealed all future building. A similar action was taken by Rajiv Gandhi’s government, when on a coastal visit, the then prime minister proposed that no construction be allowed within one kilometre from the sea. Wasn’t that like saying that since certain foods cause a stomach upset, stop eating altogether?

Kashmir now, Kedarnath last year, Nainital even earlier, and annual instances of coastal deluge — all indicate that state governments need to take land and construction policy seriously and not merely treat it as an instrument of tourism. Many countries, especially in Scandinavia, have developed lighter forms of building for their mountain and riverside terrain. Others forbid construction in all geologically unstable ecologies. Only a savage and inert bureaucracy continues to allow conventional construction on difficult environmentally sensitive terrain; it may take several natural disasters to remind people of the consequences of illicit building actions.

Genghis Khan………….the father of all harem


We know he was one of history’s greatest warriors, but new research shows Genghis Khan could have fathered thousands of children
Seven hundred years ago, a man almost conquered the Earth. He made himself master of half the known world, and inspired mankind with a fear that lasted for generations.
“In the course of his life he was given many names – Mighty Manslayer, Scourge of God, Perfect Warrior. He is better known to us as Genghis Khan.”
So begins Harold Lamb’s 1927 book Genghis Khan: Emperor Of All Men, which – 80 years after its publication – remains the best-selling history on the Mongolian warlord.

But what Lamb did not say – because there was no proof of it until this day – is that Genghis Khan could also lay claim to being the most prolific lover the world has ever seen.
After analysing tissue samples in populations bordering Mongolia, scientists from the Russian Academy of Sciences believe the brutal ruler has 16 million male descendants living today, meaning that he must have fathered hundreds, if not thousands, of children.
And as the geneticists agree, it can be explained only by Genghis Khan’s policy of seizing for himself the most beautiful women captured in the course of his merciless conquests.
The Mongol victory feasts were notorious. Genghis Khan and his commanders would tear at huge lumps of nearly raw horsemeat while captive girls were paraded for their inspection.
Genghis Khan chose from women of the highest rank. He liked them with small noses, rounded hips, long silky hair, red lips and melodious voices.
He measured their beauty in carats: if he rated them below a certain number they were sent to the tents of his officers.
On one occasion, his lieutenants were idly debating what was the greatest enjoyment that life afforded. The consensus was leaning toward the sport of falconry – Genghis owned 800 falcons – when their leader offered his own deeply felt view.
“The greatest pleasure is to vanquish your enemies and chase them before you, to rob them of their wealth and see those dear to them bathed in tears, to ride their horses and clasp to your bosom their wives and daughters,” he announced.
Despite his appetite for women, the findings of the geneticists sound impossible. They suggest that Genghis fathered more offspring than anyone in history.
How could 16 million men, living in an area stretching from China to the Middle East, share the identical genetic footprint of one man?
Yet that vast region precisely matches the range of Genghis Khan’s dominion, through which he led his 13th century Mongol armies on the greatest orgy of pillage, rape and slaughter known to history.
It was a phenomenal achievement, accomplished in just 20 years. At the time of his death in 1227, Genghis ruled an empire twice the size of Rome’s, and it changed the world forever.
His original name was Temujin, but he took the title of Genghis Khan or ‘Universal Ruler’ when he united the fractious Mongolian tribes in 1206.
He and his pony-mounted archers then set out on a whirlwind of foreign conquest and destruction.
His armies ravished northern China, Samarkand and the other fabled Central Asian cities of the Silk Road, and much of far-off Russia.
Genghis and his hordes annihilated every community which resisted them, killing or enslaving men, then distributing captured women among themselves and raping them.
“The plundering of enemy territories could begin only when Genghis Khan or one of his generals gave permission,” wrote Russian historian George Vernadsky.
“Once it had started, the commander and the common soldier had equal rights, except that beautiful young women had to be handed over to Genghis Khan.”
Often Khan took pleasure in sleeping with the wives and daughters of the enemy chiefs. His army commanders believed him to have extraordinary sexual powers, because he would sleep with many women every night.
There was never any shortage of women, for he and his hordes used bone- crushing violence to wipe out all the men who stood in their path.
A year after he and his hordes ransacked Beijing in 1214, an ambassador to the city reported that the bones of the slaughtered formed mountains, that the soil was greasy with human fat and that some of his own entourage had died from diseases spread by the rotting bodies.
When Genghis and his armies laid siege to cities, the besieged inhabitants were forced to resort to cannibalism.
His nomadic tribesmen travelled with battering rams, scaling ladders, four-wheeled mobile shields and bombhurlers in a juggernaut that was something new in history: a growing army which gathered prisoners as it went along and used them as soldiers or in its slave-labour force.
The further it travelled, building its own roads, the stronger it became. Prisoners were used as cannon-fodder – driven forward as suicide troops to fill up the moats and take the full force of the defences’ fire.
Where possible, Genghis Khan used local prisoners so that defenders would hold back, unwilling to slaughter people they recognised.
In the Persian city of Merv, an ancient seat of learning regarded as the pearl of Asia, Genghis Khan committed one of the greatest unmechanised mass killings in history, second only to the massacres of Armenians by Turks in 1915.
For four days, the population was led out from the city walls to the plains to be slaughtered. A group of Persians later spent 13 days counting the people slain.
The Persian historian al-Juvayni, writing a generation after the destruction of Merv, said: “The Mongols ordered that, apart from 400 artisans, the whole population, including the women and children, should be killed, and no one, whether woman or man, be spared.
“To each Mongol soldier was allotted the execution of 300 or 400 Persians. So many had been killed by nightfall that the mountains became hillocks, and the plain was soaked with the blood of the mighty.”
Historians today estimate that more than a million were killed.
In southern Russia, Khan’s Mongol armies destroyed a combined Russian army four times bigger. The surviving leaders, including Prince Romanovitch of Kiev, surrendered on the understanding that no blood would be shed. It wasn’t.
The captives were tied up and laid flat, where they became the foundation for a heavy wooden platform on which the Mongol commanders feasted and chose which women to bed, while the Prince and his allies were crushed or suffocated.
Aside from these battlefield conquests, Genghis Khan had six Mongolian wives, he established a large harem and he married many daughters of foreign kings who prudently submitted to his rule.
It was on August 18, 1227, during a campaign against the Tangut people of northwestern China, that Genghis Khan died. The reason for his death is uncertain.
Many assume he fell off his horse, due to old age and physical fatigue; others allege he was killed by the Tangut.
There are persistent folktales that a Tangut princess, to avenge her people and prevent her rape, castrated him with a hidden knife and that he never recovered. Whatever the cause, his legacy was astonishing.
His Mongol Empire ended up ruling, or briefly conquering, large parts of modern day China, Mongolia, Russia, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Georgia, Iraq, Iran, Turkey, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Pakistan, Tajikistan, Afghanistan, Turkmenistan, Moldova, South Korea, North Korea and Kuwait.
His sons and heirs ruled over his empire, and may well have used their position to establish their own large harems, especially if they followed their father’s example.
David Morgan, a historian of Mongol history at the University of Wisconsin, says Genghis’s eldest son, Tushi, had 40 sons.
Ata-Malik Juvaini, who wrote a treatise on the Mongols in 1260, said: “Of the issue of the race and lineage of Ghengis Khan, there are now living in the comfort of wealth and affluence more than 20,000.
“More than this I will not say … lest the readers of this history should accuse the writer of exaggeration and hyperbole and ask how from the loins of one man there could spring in so short a time so great a progeny.”

Prostitures , pimps and whores . ……………… Sex was the most sought out game. 

Day and night the emperor and the other  members of the royal family was drowned in drink, Orgy of sex and pleasure as their favorite past time…………. This was the royal harem in the medieval times.

The royal harem was a place of filth and stink. Chaos and Confusion  ran around  in the dreadful nights,   shouts and shrieks were all over. Innocent lives vanished into deep blue sky.


Thou most harems governed by strict rules of purdah they lived and behaved exactly like prostitutes except that it belonged to the emperor and his sons. These ladies usually did not have the liberty to move out of the harem as they liked. If at all they went out, their faces were well hidden behind veils. But inside the harem they could move around as they pleased. They were  provided with luxury and materialistic pleasure. 

THE royal ladies and the women who were captured through war spent their entire lives inside a Emperor’s harem. A feeling of awe and mystery  fills one’s mind when one hears of the Emperor’s harem. Many things have been written and many things have been guessed about the life of these royal ladies.

The manner in which the royal women spent their lives, their places of residence, their food and clothes, purdah and religion, pleasures and pastimes, learning and education and even their love and resentments, have always remained matters of interest to many.

The royal harems of the mediaeval times consisted of a large number of different races, provinces and communities. Muslim women, Hindu women including Rajput ladies, and even Christian women lived in the harem of the emperors. The harems had approximately 500 women.

The women who lived inside the harem, were supposed to be the king’s wives, concubines, dancing and singing girls and slave and servant girls , their mothers, stepmothers, foster-mothers, aunts, grandmothers, sisters, daughters and other female relatives of the king. Even the male children lived inside the harem till they grew up.

The ladies-in-waiting, slave and servant girls and a number of women officials and guards who were appointed by the emperor for taking care of the various needs of the harem. There were eunuch guards also guarding the surrounding areas of the harem quartes. Female fortune-tellers also lived inside the harem. Some women and eunuchs acted as spies and they kept the emperor informed about the activities of the harem women. Women usually came into the harem through marriage, birth, purchase, appointment or as gifts.

The daily needs of the emperor were fulfilled to a great extent by the imperial harem.

Recreation and pastime mostly was adorning, decorating and beautifying themselves. Various arrangements were made for the emperors recreation inside the harem. There were female superintendents of music and dance and a number of lady singers and dancers.

The ladies played many games as all the harem ladies did not enjoy equal position. Their status and the position of authority and respect in the harem was determined by the place they had in the emperor’s life or in his heart. Their mutual relationship amongst themselves was usually not friendly and cordial.  Jealousies were prevalent and shown directly.

Everyone tried their best to please the emperor however everyone showed her bad qualities like jealousy, quarrelsome nature or short-tempered attitude to one another. To give the king his first male child was a great competition in this regard often resulted in unpleasantness throughout the royal brothel.

The more important position a lady occupied, the more privileges she enjoyed.

The first lady of the realm was usually the emperor’s mother and not his chief queen, except in the case of death of the Queen Mother did the chief consort of the emperor take her place. These ladies lived in grand apartments luxuriously furnished, with lovely gardens, fountains, tanks and water channels attached to them. They wore beautiful and expensive clothes made from the finest material and adorned themselves with jewellery from head to toe. They rarely went out, but when they did, most of the times the ladies of rank travelled in style and comfort in richly decorated howdahs on elephant backs and palanquins. The imperial royal ladies we’re provided with beautiful dresses, jewellery and fancy articles.

Apart from their own mothers and foster-mothers, the other wives of their father , grandmothers, aunts and other elderly relations were also  in a royal brothel. How wretched most rulers were although our  pseudo historians display them as most benevolent, tolerant and disciplined showing equality to all in their kingdom and great respect to their elders. 



The first war

The First Jinn 

In the first age  the Jinn were offered great power. But many of the Jinn were not benevolent beings.  Several of the most powerful Jinn, including the Jinn Lord  staged a coup against the creator . The jinns  together toppling the Moon and casting him into an eternity of quiet slumber in the First Jinn War. They   invaded the night sky, dousing thousands of stars and capturing the rest in the Night of the Burning Sky. Together, the Jinn imprisoned the evening heavens and  knew the awesome secrets of the stars and how to destroy them.

When the First Jinn War swept through the Celestial Heavens and the  Moon witnessed his own imminent demise, he called upon his secret weapon but it did not respond. It had been trapped  by the Jinn Lord  using deception.

Imprisoning Ilah the Creator
With the dawn, Ilah arrived to behold their crimes, and was horrified by what her beloved creations had become. The Legion trapped her  within a prison built of their awful face. Cut off from all that she had envisioned, and thinking her cherished family dead or destroyed, she quickly fell into madness, loosing her own power. Within one cycle, the Jinns had captured the world.

Enslaving the World 
The jinn embarked on a campaign of terror, reducing their own creations to subjects or slaves, or consuming them. Human were forced to work together for the first time in history against a common foe – their own progenitors.

The humans eventually contacted Ilah with the  Seal,  the jinns developed. Awakened from her lunacy, Ilah witnessed the Jinn through the veracity of the Seal, and calling upon all the power keeping her sane lashed out across the beautiful terrain she had brought into being. In one climactic moment, the world dissolved around the Jinn,  and humans. Magic touched by her wrath was consumed to add to the destruction, ripped away from those who would use it for their own selfish desire. Minor Jinn beings subsisting upon the land and within the air, both young and weak were obliterated in a flash of Ilah’s grace. Those who thrived from magic and lived were forced out of Ilah’s sight: they fled into the earth, and the last thousand Jinn bound themselves into service with the humans or fled beyond the boundaries of the world. This day the First Jinn War ended

What once had been a lush land was barrened, becoming a desert.  In that cataclysmic event, only the  river survived.  The sands still surged with residual energies originated that day.

The Moon was severely weakened and fell into a long sleep within the Blighted Realms, the Black Earth  breaking the balance in the sky.

The humans  rousing them from their long sleep becoming servants or even mere slaves of their will, their lifeline after the Day of Wrath and the source of their hostility

All that thrived with magic disappeared from the Ila’s eye. The  Seal originally scorched by the Sun, which had remnants of her power. The  power of the Sun  became the most powerful in the Burning Sands. But it if exposed during enough time under the Ilah’s Wrath, the light of the sun, would weaken and die. The jinns were obliged to live in the shadows


Several groups of human wandered the Burning Sands looking for water and farmable land. The group found the inland part of the river, the founding place of  the Desert.

An ancient prophecy, the Awakening, foresaw that Lord Moon would restore the balance, and his lost daughter was the key to waking him from his dreaded sleep.


Those who from the sky came

The excavation and subsequent translation of thousands of clay tablets from
the ancient land of the Sumerians by Zecharia Sitchen has sparked a new
controversy about who humans really are and where we come from. The
priest class of the Sumerians were very interested in the movements of the
planets with particular interest in one planet which was described as the home
planet of their gods. This was not mythology for the Sumerians as these gods
lived among them and ruled over them. Zecharia Sitchen translated, from
these clay tablets, a god-like race called the Anunnaki who came from their
home planet called Nibiru.

Anunnaki or Annukim translates from the Sumerian language as
“Those who from the sky came”. The tablets which Sitchen translated told
the story (history) of gods that entered our solar system long ago and
used to fly their spacecraft and do other tasks. The Sumerians said these
“helpers” were not alive, which make a case for the Anunnaki’s technological
ability to make clones (See: Grey Aliens).

What really intrigues Ancient Aliens theorists and why they believe the
Anunnaki were not mythological beings was the sudden emergence of the
Sumerian culture with all its technological advancements such as taxes,
irrigation, agriculture, civil code, priesthood, public building and factories! All
this, which is tied back to the following of their gods and the Anunnaki. This
leaves Ancient Aliens theorists to ponder whether the Anunnaki are a form of
Ancient Alien travelers that manipulated and genetically altered the living
forms which existed on Earth into a “slave race” to do their bidding.

Essentially, the Anunnaki, are a race of extra-terrestrial “android beings” who
had the capacity and technology to genetically alter life on Earth and create
humans who would serve as a slave race for the purpose of mining gold to
save the Anunnaki’s planet Nibiru.

Genesis chapter 6 verse 4 which reads; “There were giants in the earth in
those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the
daughters of men, and they; bare children unto them, the same became
mighty men which were of old, men of renown.”

India Ruins Suggest Ancient Atomic Attack

There has been a story making its rounds on the Internet, drawn from an article originally written by writer and researcher Philip Coppens, reporting ruins of an ancient city in Rajasthan, India, that appears to have been destroyed by an atomic explosion sometimes between 8,000 and 12,000 years ago.

The story supports a theory once proposed on this website that ancient myths and even scientific evidence raises the possibility that atomic bombs were used on this planet in the distant past.

As the Coppens story is told, a layer of still radioactive ash covering the ruins of a very ancient city has been uncovered by archaeologists in Rajasthan, India. The site was revealed west of the City of Jadhpur by workers starting construction of a new housing development.

The Indian government has cordoned off the region after testing revealed high radiation levels still present in the ruins. Archaeological teams have since uncovered ruins covering a three square mile area, showing evidence of a powerful blast that destroyed most of the buildings and possibly a half million people that once lived there.

Excavations of the place, identified as two separate places named Harappa and Mohenjo-Daro, uncovered the skeletal remains of the people scattered throughout the streets. Some were holding hands. Coppens wrote that it appeared “as if some instant, horrible doom had killed its inhabitants. People were just lying, unburied, in the streets of the city. There seemed no one available to bury them afterwards.”

Historian Kisari Mohan Ganguli told of finding “huge masses of walls and foundations of the ancient city” that are fused together, literally vitrified by intense heat that “can only be explained by an atomic blast or some other unknown weapon.”

The story quoted Archaeologist Francis Taylor who spoke of etchings in some nearby temples. The translations suggested that the people “prayed to be spared from the great light that was coming to lay ruin to the city.”

Some say the discovery gives strong credence to the ancient Indian epic known as The Mahabharata, that describes an ancient war between the Vrishnis and the Salva. The Salva are portrayed as the villains in the story.

The weird thing about this story is that the Salva flew about the sky in chariots that carried them anywhere at will. These flying machines emerged from a flying city known as the Saubha. Does that not sound strangely like an alien craft and its occupants waging warfare against the people of Earth?

The Vrishnis, who battled the Salva, were lead by a hero named Krishna, long since depicted as a Hindu deity. Krishna and his forces used “swift-striking shafts” that flashed through the sky and destroyed the invading Salva craft. Did the Earth forces have modern weapons like missiles or possibly lasers to fight off the invaders?

The great battle ends when a massive explosion destroys three cities of the Vrishnis and their neighbors, the Andhakas, killing everyone and leaving no building standing. The description of the blast is frighteningly similar to a modern nuclear explosion:

“An incandescent column of smoke and fire, as brilliant as ten thousand suns, rose in all its splendor. It was the unknown weapon, the iron thunderbolt, a gigantic messenger of death which reduced to ashes the entire race of the Vrishnis and Andhakas. The corpses were so burnt they were no longer recognizable. Hair and nails fell out. Pottery broke without cause. Foodstuffs were poisoned.”

Ganguli said the evidence is strong “that the Rama empire was devastated by nuclear war.”

Was it an alien attack or had ancient civilizations advanced to such a state of modern weaponry that we all but destroyed ourselves using them against one another? If either story is true, is there evidence on the planet of other nuclear attacks?

Genesis 19 contains the story of Lot’s escape, with his family, from the corrupted cities of Sodom and Gomorrah before they were destroyed by God. The Biblical myth says God sent fire and brimstone down from heaven. When Lot’s uncle, Abraham, “looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and toward all the land of the plain, and beheld, and, lo, the smoke of the country went up as the smoke of a furnace.” (Gen. 19:28)

Could this have been the detonation of an atomic bomb? Abraham was miles away from the event when he saw this great cloud of smoke rise into the sky. The explosion also was powerful enough to destroy two cities.

The similarities between this destruction of two communities as described in the Mahabharata, and the Biblical story of the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, are interesting. Is it the same story told in two different ways by two different cultures?

Author Rene Noorbergen, in his book Secrets of the Lost Races, describes other vitrified remains of fortresses, ziggurats and towers, all subjected to a blast of heat powerful enough to melt and fuse rock. Noorbergen describes charred ruins found between the River Ganges in India and the mountains of Rajamahal.

A story on a website for the National Association for Scientific and Cultural Appreciation (NASCA), titled Nuclear Warfare In Antiquity,” points not only to the archaeological evidence supporting the Mahabharata myth, but tells of vitrified ruins found all over the world, including North and South America.

The NASCA report states that “in Mesopotamia sizeable ziggurats – a form of early pyramid – have been found melted to their base in a vitrified mass.

“In the Arabian desert, blackened stones litter the sands over a wide area, showing signs of having been subjected to intense radiation. In Israel the location of the Dead Sea and its mysterious connection with Sodom and Gomorrah bears evidence of an amazing focus of heat that is thought to have gouged out the entire area in a massive explosion.”

The story tells of places on the planet where vitrified areas of sand, heated to become crystal, are found that stretches out over hundreds of square feet. This is exactly what happened to the desert sands in White Sands, Nevada, after the first atomic bombs were tested there in the 1940s.

Throughout Scotland ancient stone forts and other structures made of stone have been found where the walls were melted and fused together by intense heat of unexplained origin. Archaeologists have long been baffled by these primitive but vitrified fortresses. The heat of a nuclear blast, perhaps from high above, might explain how it happened.

For years it was believed these vitrified forts were peculiar to Scotland, but they also have been found in Ireland, France and Hungary.

The troubling thought here is that if this did not involve alien intervention, we may be living on a planet that has seen the human race evolve over and over again, each time developing great technologies.

If the latter is true, we must assume that each time this happened, the people did much as world military leaders are doing today. They used newly discovered technologies to create deadly weapons of war. And each time we reached this pinnacle, instead of continuing the natural evolution into something far better, we destroyed ourselves.

Are we all in hell? Are we doomed to relive these horrible lives again and again, and repeat the same mistakes over and over again until we get it right? Or is the Hopi prophecy correct. They warn that humans have lived in four worlds. They say this one will be our last

Human Revolution Against Suppression

It seems fitting that the great revolution by humanity against the repressive government and financial regimes that have kept us all enslaved for thousands of years should have its origins in North Africa, the place where many believe it all began.

The movement began as a spontaneous and disorganized street rebellion that quickly toppled the 24-year reign of Tunisian President Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali amid charges of corruption, theft of the wealth and suppression of the Tunisian people.

Before the Tunisian affair was ended, the people of Egypt also were in the streets, gathering in Cairo’s broad Tahrir Square, within sight of the Great Pyramids, in protest to 30 years of repression under the dictatorial rule of President Hosni Mubarak. The anger was spurred by the lack of jobs and the rising cost of food. But there was more. The people expressed a hunger for freedom from government corruption and a daily fear of the police. After just 18 days of peaceful protest by gatherings sometimes numbered in the thousands, Mubarak stepped down from power.

What has been unique about the Tunisian and Egyptian revolutions is that they were generated from the grass roots and they remained peaceful, except for the moments when protesters were confronted by police and hired goons that attempted to use force to excite the crowds to violence. It did not happen.

President Barack Obama on February 11 commended the Egyptian people for their ability to accomplish a non-violent revolution and demonstrate once more to the world the power of peaceful protest. Other commentators have raised the memory of Martin Luther King, leader of the American Civil Rights movement, and Mahatma Gandhi, political leader of India during that nation’s independence movement

Fawaz Gerges, of the London School of Economics, in an appearance on MSNBC’s Dylan Ratigan show, noted how the Egyptian success story should serve as a strong message to violent extremist groups that have resorted to bombs and terrorism in an effort to achieve their goals.

While the people around the world appear to be celebrating what occurred in Egypt and Tunisia, analysts are noting that the revolt is spreading throughout Northern Africa and the Middle East. They are suggesting that what happened in Egypt may be very disconcerting to suppressive leaders everywhere.

Indeed, thousands of protesters are in the streets already in Algiers. The government has met the demonstrators with force with police clashing with demonstrators in the street. Security forces have closed all entrances to the capital and arrested hundreds of protesters. Among those arrested is Elias Filali, an Internet blogger and human rights activist who is among the organizers of the public demonstrations. He, like the Egyptians, is calling on the people to remain peaceful in spite of attempts by police to excite them to violence. The protestors are demanding a change of government, jobs and greater democratic freedom.

In Yemen, thousands of people were in the streets of Aden, Dalea and Zinjibar in what was dubbed a “Friday of Rage.” They were demanding a change of government, secession from the north and a revolution. Reuters news said the protests were stamped out by heavily deployed security forces.

In Sudan, just to the south of Egypt, activists also were in the streets calling for the overthrow of President Omar al-Bashir. Most of the protesters were identified as students. There were reports of dozens of arrests.

Other Middle Eastern governments are moving quickly to head off early signs of trouble. In Bahrain, the king announced the gift of 1,000 dinars ($2,650) to every Bahraini family in an attempt to ease any trouble. A public protest was planned to begin on Monday.

In Libya, political commentator Jarnal al-Hajji was arrested after he made a call on the Internet for public demonstrations for freedom. He was charged with hitting a man with his car, a charge he denies.

Ayatollah Ali Kharnenei, Iran’s supreme leader, praised the uprisings in Egypt and Tunisia as part of an “Islamic liberation movement” during a talk at Tehran University. He said “I, in the name of the Iranian government, salute the Egyptian people and the Tunisian people” and he urged them to follow in the footsteps of the Irans and to unite around the Islamic religion.

Remember than Iran successfully put down a public call for an overthrow of its corrupt and suppressive government during demonstrations in 2009. The government used military force to survive the movement. We believe the anger that brought about the demonstrations still exists and that the people of Iran will not be fooled by the Ayatollah’s twisted logic. The revolt that began there two years ago may not be over.

The Abba Father and world “seers” have been predicting a major change in world events. Some say the Earth is preparing to shift into a Fifth Dimension so that the humans of the Earth can be separated from the aliens who have been in power for a very long time. As this happens, humans are waking up and discovering just who they are.

Are we not seeing the beginning of a world revolt against the greed and corruption that has enslaved humanity for too long? Stay tuned everybody. Exciting times lie ahead of us all.

Human Slavery

The conflict between the wealthy and the poor now going on around the world appears to support a thesis by various esoteric writers and public speakers that humans on this planet are locked in an ancient spiritual conflict against alien forces that have successfully enslaved us for thousands of years.

There has been a rash of predictions by various visionaries, “seers” and channelers that claim to be speaking to forces beyond the veil and getting uplifting messages. They are all saying that the world is on the verge of a major “shift” into a new dimension, or an awakening, that will separate the two sides and make thing right again on the planet.

Some years ago, before we started receiving these messages, I received a letter from an acquaintance that I identify only as Joe. He wrote: “For many years, since my first encounter with an unexplainable group of aircraft as a 10-year-old boy, a preoccupation with alien influences upon the human race has been ever present.”

Joe said it was once suggested to him that the original human on this planet was doing just fine on his own. But at some point in history, “there occurred usurpation in the form of genetic tampering.

“This tampering, in my opinion, was nothing less than the removal of a third strand of DNA. This strand served to unite left and right brain functions, and provide immediate and direct (links) to the collective consciousness. The removal of this (part of our brain) in combination with cross-breeding of alien traits, brought the counterfeit blueprint for what modern man has become.”

Joe suggested that we were once a great race of humans with the wonderful ability to communicate telepathically, leave our bodies at will and enter the astral, and to use the full potential of both left and right hemispheres of our brains. We were literally a perfect race, living in what was then a perfect garden, a planet Earth that was in complete balance.

Then the alien race that some have called the Annunaki arrived and things were dramatically altered. How they overpowered a race of brilliant thinkers is unclear, but I suspect there may have been a war. In past articles I have written about the evidence of great civilizations that existed long before our own, that had the ability to operate flying machines. There also is evidence all over the Earth that there was at least one war involving nuclear bombs prior to our own disaster during World War II. I suspect we were overpowered by technology, including atomic warfare.

When you think about it, the atomic bomb would be a device that a people living in harmony with their planet would not even think of. If everyone could speak telepathically, there would be no secrets. And without secrets, there would be no reason for warfare. We would have no use for bombs and bullets.

Thus we have stories about our great utopia, sometimes called Atlantis, being suddenly destroyed and its people killed or scattered all over the globe. We also have stories about Adam and Eve being cast out of the Garden of Eden.

Could it be that the legends look back at the same event; the day the Anunnaki attacked and overwhelmed our utopian civilization? Could that have been the day the aliens arrived and turned us into slaves lacking the will or the ability to fight back? What better way to do this than alter the DNA of every human left alive, so that the wonderful dual hemispheric brains we have are no longer able to function at full capacity.

In his letter, Joe notes that science has proved that most humans only use about 10 percent of their brain capacity. People who study the brain have been perplexed as to why we were born with so much brain tissue if we never use it. Some brain specialists have actually suggested that the right hemisphere of the brain is not even needed. People with brain tumors and other problems have had that side of the brain removed and continued living a relatively normal life.

But Joe compares this condition as “akin to a computer with rewired hardware. He says such a computer, although built to do much more, now functions only as a “dedicated” unit controlled by outside forces. In our case, he suggests that we have become slaves, controlled by the minds of aliens that either exist in another dimension right beside us, or they are manipulating us from afar. But we are being controlled.

Joe also suggests that because a number of humans are becoming aware of our situation, the aliens are involved in damage control. It seems that some very special humans have come into existence in recent years with the ability to use both hemispheres of the brain. Whether this was by accident or genetic intervention by yet another alien race interested in setting us free, is yet to be determined. But it seems to have happened.

Because of these dynamic changes in the way humans are starting to think about God and themselves, we are now faced with a world in chaos. Cataclysmic events seem to be happening all around us. Also we are experiencing a heating of a sun that seems to be spewing solar storms that could threaten our lives. The Earth is heating and our environment is going wild. Storms are intensifying. Warfare and terrorism rage for no logical reason. Many scientists worry that we will all be scrambling soon for our very survival.

In his letter, Joe said: “It seems that the various cataclysmic events oddly coincide with periods of history when humanity is becoming aware that something is very wrong; that we are being controlled.

“By the time enough people realize what is going on, made-to-order disasters are requiring all the time, energy and resources (our) race can spare. Is it possible that some (alien) races possess technology that can influence the Earth/Sun dynamics and (create) such epic “natural” disasters?” Joe asks.

If things become bad enough, survival could become such an important issue that even the awakened humans would be willing, “in a state of desperation, to accept almost any conditions,” he concluded. Joe said this might mean a return to obedient servitude.

We would hope that our friend is wrong in his conclusions. The prediction of a shift into a new dimension, with all humans restored to the state they once enjoyed in the garden, is much more inviting.

Whatever is happening, we believe some kind of dramatic change is coming. The way we see it, things can’t get much worse than they already are.

“Gods from the sky”

The reality of alien interaction with humans can be seen throughout history. In the 1st century, the Roman statesman Cicero wrote of strange spheres in the sky. There are records dating back to 8th century France that tell of individuals during Charlemagne’s time that were taken up by strange craft and shown various marvels. At that time, if they revealed what had happened to them or if it became public knowledge, they were killed. There are even records during that time which speak of strange aerial ships destroying crops.

All the major religions of Mesopotamia, Egypt and the Americas are dominated by adoration of “Gods from the sky”. There is evidence that these custodial rulers from the stars controlled every aspect of human society from the initial appearance of the current version of Homo Sapiens about 30,000 years ago. It was at the same time that the Neanderthal version of Homo Sapiens mysteriously and suddenly vanished from the face of the planet.

Early investigations into this matter were done by Charles Fort, who lived between 1867 and 1932. He found that extraterrestrial societies were very much involved in Earths prehistory, and that the status of the human race appeared to be like self-satisfied livestock. His final thought was that humans were used as slaves.

The idea of humans as a slave race is not new. Ancient Sumerian records dating back to 4500BC relate that humanoids from the sky were the rulers of humans. Human priests acted as intermediaries between the rulers from the sky and the human masses. The rulers from the sky were described in those records as having male and female sexes, racially diverse, and behaviorally similar to humans.

The records of that time also relate that it was the general Sumerian belief that the first humans were bred in the wombs of alien females. Sumerian records indicate that the alien rulers were involved in mining and other exploitation of natural resources that involved humans performing lifetimes of backbreaking labor. The actual creation of the Homo Sapiens species occurred sometime between 300,000 to 500,000 years ago. (see “La Creacion del Hombre – El 12º Planeta”)

Records in ancient Mesopotamia credit an alien by the name of Ea for directing the creation of Homo Sapiens as a genetic hybrid. Ea was also known as the Prince of Earth. Other portions of the Earth were controlled by Ea’s half-brother. During the time of his uninterrupted influence, marshes by the Persian Gulf were drained and dams and dikes were constructed. Ea was the main advocate of the hybrid species later known as Homo Sapiens before the council of aliens that managed operations on the planet.

Sumerian records indicate that human beings were spiritual beings animating physical bodies, and that the alien rulers contrived an original plan to keep entities attached to physical bodies, body physically and psychologically, so that the humans could function as slave labor. Population control measures were carried out on the humans. Food supplies were cut off, humans were forced to cannibalism, diseases were introduced, and there was global flooding.

In order to prevent the humans from banding together and realizing the predicament they were in, the aliens sought to block spiritual recovery for the humans. Various immediate measures were taken in order to prevent human unity. Formal religions were introduced, people were scattered around the planet, and different language functions introduced. The aliens made sure that existence for humans became a physical chore that would preclude excess time on their hands.

Ea, when in power, was dedicated to the dissemination of spiritual knowledge to the newly created human hybrids. He was aware of the desire by other alien groups to promote human bondage. Despite his good intentions, Ea failed to maintain the freedom of the human species. His faction, sometimes known as the Brotherhood of the Snake, was defeated by other alien factions. Ea was banished to Earth by the other aliens, and his title was changed from the Prince of Earth to the Prince of Darkness. He was then portrayed to the humans as the “enemy of a Supreme Being” and the humans were told that all their troubles were the fault of Ea. Humans were subsequently programmed to detect any trace of Ea in future lifetimes.

Under negative alien influence, the Brotherhood of the Snake was changed from a force disseminating scientific and spiritual knowledge to one that became known for spiritual repression and betrayal. Corruption of the Brotherhood was evident in Egypt by 2000BC. The Pharaohs and priests were indoctrinated into the Brotherhood as Elite who would manipulate the masses for their own ends. Brotherhood functions in society eventually evolved into the Mystery Schools, which twisted spiritual knowledge, and restricted public access to any truths which had survived. Traditions were started that transferred knowledge orally and also embedded it in symbology which only the Elite could understand.

Monotheism was one of the most insidious teachings of the Brotherhood. It was started in Egypt during the reign of Akhenaton, and eventually evolved into the teachings embodied in Judaism, Islam and Christianity. Humans were taught that the aliens were Gods, and the aliens enforced human obedience. One group of alien custodians was named the Jehovah, who had influence over the Hebrew peoples. The Hebrews were befriended and ruled by the Jehovah, who typically landed his craft in the mountains. In order to promote the “God” concept, only specific humans were allowed to approach the Jehovah, which were presented to the humans as a succession of singular beings, named Jehovah, over a long period of time.

Over time, a network of Brotherhood organizations imposed alien institutions on the human species and generated conflict and war in order to manipulate and divide the human race.

Brotherhood influence in India was embodied in 1500BC when the faction known as the Aryans (who supported alien aims) invaded the area. The Aryans were a non-semitic white-skinned race that established a system of religious-feudal religion that became known as Hinduism. During this time the aliens traveled openly in ships with humans, engaged in warfare with other alien factions (which involved the use of nuclear and beam weaponry). It was described at the time that some of the aliens had blue skin. The aliens then imposed the caste systems, further confusing and dividing the humans in the area. The Hindu religion introduced the concept of “reincarnation” and the principle of “obedience bringing advancement”.

Due to the influence of the custodial aliens, a succession of maverick religions began to spring up. These religious concepts attracted millions of adherents and basically consisted of six “systems of salvation”, mixing truth and manipulative concepts.
The first “system of salvation” (hereafter SOS) was Samkya, which was introduced about 500BC. It taught that Souls were infinite in number, consisted of pure intelligence, were independent, incapable of change, and bound in matter. The system taught humans the concept that “suffering” was the result of “bondage to matter” and lack of knowledge.

The second SOS was Toga.

The third was Mimamsa, which was an attempt to maintain Aryan creeds. The conflict in Mimamsa was between the ideas of rigid obedience to doctrine versus spiritual freedom.

Buddhism was the fourth SOS. It was founded about 525BC. It opposed the caste system of Hindism, but added new and more insidious elements to human lives. Buddhism taught that “freedom will come some day”. One of the most influential teachings of Buddhism was what became known as the Mettaya Prophecy.

The Mettaya Prophecy said that an individual with great knowledge and ability “will arrive some day to save the human race”. This eventually evolved into the various “End of the World” doctrines, which became known in the concepts of Day of Judgment, Final Battle, Armageddon, and Messiah From God (750BC). One of the most influential people in this area was Zoroaster, who disseminated the Mettaya concepts together with Monotheism. This had a catastrophic effect on human society.

The ideas and concepts injected by the being known as Jesus deteriorated very quickly due to custodial influence, and in 325AD the Council of Nicea began defining and interpreting religious concepts having to do with the Jesus Ministry. Thus, what began as an attempt by an advanced being deteriorated into the fifth SOS. The Nicene Creed redefined the entity Jesus as the “son of God”, and banned the concept of pre-existence of human beings in other lives.

The introduction of the concept of “sex as sin” produced devastating effects on the humans. It mentally tied them to anxiety and frustration about natural processes and furthered human focus on the body. In modern times, this is seen as a component of a whole system of ego defense mechanisms embodying security, sensation, and power that today create a feeling of powerlessness and dependency in human beings. It also promotes the “wheel of fortune” mentality that blinds humans to the truth of their own capabilities and nature.

The sixth SOS was promoted by Mohammed in 570 AD, who had a mission in life that was triggered by the appearance of an apparition. It taught that Allah is the Supreme Being, brought in the concept of “fire and brimstone” as embodied in the Koran, and was a custodial religion centered around “obedience”. The Koran also promotes the Mettaya ideas, and what became Islam eventually became the source for a series of holy wars and crusades.

Here the Brotherhood concept of assassinations was introduced. It eventually evolved into the “lone assassin” concept used by the CIA and other extensions of the Brotherhood to mask their involvement in the manipulation of the populace.
Alien custodial religious programming embodied the following main concepts to confuse the human population:
Sources of teachings were said to be a “God or force.”
Belief in a “single Supreme Being.”
Belief in “physical immortality.” See Mormon belief system.
Belief and adherence to “doctrine.”
Belief in “severe punishment to backsliders/non-believers.”
Belief that “reincarnation is part of a spiritual plan.”
Belief that “higher forces control human destiny.”
Belief that “one Supreme Being created the universe.”
Belief that “human suffering is part of a broader plan.”
Belief that “spiritual recovery” or “salvation” is “upon the Grace of God”.

Population Control

The creation of the mentality that produces chemical and biological weapons owes its source to alien influence. The appearance of global disease is also there. Between 540AD and 592AD the bubonic plague ravaged the East Roman Empire. Records show frequent aerial phenomena in conjunction with outbreaks. Very often, plagues would be preceded by mysterious foul smelling mists, humanoids dressed in black, and “comets” in the sky.

A small list of plagues that were preceded by the above events:

Large “comets” seen over Europe
Plague commenced after a vile mist appeared
Plague epidemic in Europe. 40 million dead in 4 years
Note: This scenario happened every 10-20 years until the 1700’s, resulting in the death of over 100 million people
26 “comets” recorded
1556-1597 15 “comets” recorded
1568 “comet” preceded plague in Vienna
1582 “comet” preceded plague
1618 9 “comets” recorded
1606 “comet” preceded general worldwide plague

Through recorded history, there are also references to humanoids dressed in black. Their presence would signal an almost immediate outbreak of the plague. In 1559 men dressed in black were seen spraying an oat field just before an outbreak of the plague in Brandenburg, Germany.

During the plague years, there was tremendous ethical decay among humans. There was attempt by various religious factions to eliminate others. There was an attempt by the Christians to eliminate the Jews. There was more genocide during this period than during the second world war. Genocides during this period were often incited by German trade guilds, who were Brotherhood organizations.

The effect of the plagues was:
Plague + Inquisition + Genocide = Religious Apocalyptic Prophecy Fulfilled
The Bavarian Illuminati and the Rosecrucians were behind many of the new movements which appeared at this time. One of the earliest movements was the “Friends of God” that appeared in 1347, which is the same year that the black death struck Europe. It introduced a nine-step program designed to have humans be “obedient to God”. The teachings were apocalyptic and secured a lot of converts. Eventually, the movement evolved into the Reformation of Martin Luther.


Destruction of Records and Knowledge of the Past to Isolate humans

There are many records which indicate that Brotherhood forces destroyed the library at Alexandria, which contained records dating back almost ten thousand years. Early Christian missionaries destroyed all records relating to religions in the early Americas. A standing order of the Brotherhood was to limit the perception and knowledge of the human species to a narrowly defined limit.

The Mayans
Mayan beliefs and legends tell an interesting story about the “creation of man”. It tells that mankind (humans) were created to be the “servants of the Gods”. These “Gods” made “figures of wood” before they made humans. These figures of wood “had no souls”. They were bodies animated with no spiritual beings inside. The Gods thus produced creatures to which spiritual beings could be attached. The first humans, according to the Mayans, were too intelligent and had too many abilities, so the “Gods” reduced the intelligence and vision of the humans.

John Calvin was an important leader in the Reformation. In 1536 he wrote his first religious tract in Basel, Switzerland. According to Luther, “salvation” requires an act of belief. According to Calvin, “salvation” is “determined by God”.

Calvin promoted the idea of pre-destination, and introduced the idea that some humans were “favored by God before birth” and were “the Elect”, who had a “duty to suppress sins of the others” as a “service to God”. According to Calvin, the “original sin” was the attempt to gain knowledge of ethics and immortality. From these concepts arose the idea that “war must be a necessary step to spiritual salvation.”

Mormon beliefs are quite outspoken about custodial intentions on earth. Mormons believe that humans are immortal spirit bodies and that the object is to “dwell in a perfect immortal human body”. Mormon teachings encourage the idea of endless entrapment in human bodies. Through these tenets, spiritual memory is dimmed and ethical questions remain unresolved. In this system, wars are seen as “God’s tool of control”.

The Marxist philosophy follows alien custodial patterns. The philosophy is strongly apocalyptic and describes a “final battle” followed by a “utopia”. In this system, spirit is a product of physical and material phenomena. The teachings of Marx promote the custodial aim of entity entrapment.

Perhaps one of the largest, most influential movements of the Brotherhood, Nazism subscribed to the ideas of the Aryan movement, destruction of all beings not like themselves, and absolute power, domination and control over the planet. There is evidence that the Germans made several agreements with different alien factions during the life of Nazism. Post WWII activities of this faction includes creation of the CIA, Interpol, and the Federal Reserve System which, oddly enough, was also embodied in the Communist Manifesto.

Brotherhood Symbols
Common symbols that are characteristic of Brotherhood involvement are:
Snake or Serpent
Eye of Horus/All-Seeing Eye/Masons/Seal of USA
Money Systems

Inflatable Currency System as a System of Control and Manipulation

Eventually, elite world power structures were assumed by the financial monetary and banking system. In the 16th thru 18th centuries, the money system was the key element in wars and revolutions. The true purpose of money is to represent the existence of actual tradable commodities. The introduction of the inflatable paper money system started in Holland in 1609.

Banking is socially and economically destabilizing. It is a source of wealth and power to the Elite who create the money supply. Through the system of inflatable paper currency:
People eventually become impoverished
Notes are issued in excess of the asset base
The struggle for physical existence is made more difficult
Steady inflation reduces the value of money so that accumulated wealth is eroded
Creates massive debt and parasitic absorption of wealth

Custodial/Brotherhood Methods of Control
Novel forms of killing and warfare
AIDS and Genetic products of death
Chemical warfare
Implants and Electronic manipulation and Control
Mind Control programs. CIA/MKDELTA/MKULTRA

Creation of human conflict to weaken and delude species
“Lone Assassin” management of targets of elimination

Scientific proof human race was created by aliens 2013

A group of researchers worked for 13 years at the Human Genome Project (Project completed in 2003) indicate that they made an astonishing scientific discovery: They believe so-called 97% non-coding sequences in human DNA is no less than genetic code of extraterrestrial life forms.

Non-coding sequences, originally known as “junk DNA”, were discovered years ago, and their function remained a mystery. The overwhelming majority of Human DNA is “Off-world” in origin.

After comprehensive analysis with the assistance of other scientists, computer programmers, mathematicians, and other learned scholars, Professor Chang had wondered if the apparently “junk Human DNA” was created by some kind of “extraterrestrial programmer”.

Professor Chang further stipulates that “Our hypothesis is that a higher extraterrestrial life form was engaged in creating new life and planting it on various planets. Earth is just one of them.

Professor Chang further indicates that “What we see in our DNA is a program consisting of two versions, a big code and basic code.” Mr. Chang then affirms that the “First fact is, the complete ‘program’ was positively not written on Earth; that is now a verified fact. The second fact is, that genes by themselves are not enough to explain evolution; there must be something more in ‘the game’.”

“Soon or later”, Professor Chang says “we have to come to grips with the unbelievable notion that every life on Earth carries genetic code for his extraterrestrial cousin and that evolution is not what we think it is.”

Human Genome Project Discovery Implications associated with “Human-looking Extraterrestrials”

The implications of these scientific finds would reinforce claims by other scientists and observers of having contact with ‘off-world’ human looking extraterrestrials.

The ‘off-world’ human looking extraterrestrial have been claimed to have provided some of the genetic material for human evolution, and that many of these extraterrestrials have allowed some of their personnel to incarnate as ‘star seeds’ on Earth in human families. These “star seeds”, “star children” or “star people”

Human DNA encoded with extraterrestrial signals


Now in 2013, scientists from Kazakhstan believe that human DNA was encoded with an extraterrestrial signal by an ancient alien civilisation.

They call it “biological SETI” and the researchers claim that the mathematical code in human DNA cannot be explained by evolution.

In a nutshell, we’re living, breathing vessels for some kind of alien message which is more easily used to detect extra terrestrial life than via radio transmission.

“Once fixed, the code might stay unchanged over cosmological timescales; in fact, it is the most durable construct known,” the researchers wrote in scientific journal Icarus. “Therefore it represents an exceptionally reliable storage for an intelligent signature.

“Once the genome is appropriately rewritten the new code with a signature will stay frozen in the cell and its progeny, which might then be delivered through space and time.”

The scientists also claim that human DNA is ordered so precisely that it reveals an “ensemble of arithmetical and ideographical patterns of symbolic language”.

Their research has led the scientists to conclude that we were invented “outside the solar system, already several billion years ago”.

One mystery remains: If we were the creation of aliens, who created them?
