Houston, TX (PRWEB) September 25, 2005
Delegates at the Third Annual Human Empowerment Conference resolve to address major concern of humanity including religious singularism of the Church and the violence by Islamic fundamentalists, along with internal reform in the pluralistic traditions such as caste conflicts and liberalization of temples in India.
The 3rd Annual HEC, held Friday Sept. 16 - Sunday Sept. 18, 2005, in Houston, Texas, has been a great success where over 110 Hindu and other thinkers, from all over the world, participating by invitation only, resolved to undertake numerous challenges facing the worldwide Hindu community.
Among the major resolves were to accelerate the movement, started by Veer Savarkar and continued by Hindu Seers today, to assimilate the so-called untouchables in the Hindu society and to honor everyone's human rights, as well as to stop the governmental loot of Hindu temples in India, and thus the loot of Hindu devotees worldwide, by organizing a drive to transfer the control of Hindu temples from state governments to elected bodies modeled on the Sikh Gurudwara Prabandhak Committee (SGPC).
In view of the fact that historically more Hindus have been subjected to atrocities and terrorism, and massacred, than probably all other peoples combined, both a proposed Hindu Holocaust Museum and a proposed August 14 as the Annual Hindu Memorial Day, to commemorate all Hindu victims, gained significant momentum at this HEC.
Discussed among major threats to Hinduism were the huge campaigns of conversions to Christianity, through trickery, bribe and other illicit means, funded by massive influx of foreign funds, and a just as dangerous influx of illegal Bangladeshi Muslims, not only in Assam and Bengal but in Delhi itself, as well as the ever increasing threats of terrorism in India, while Hindus in other countries, Bangladesh in particular, continue to ne persecuted.
Possible solutions to long-simmering problems, such as media coverage of Hinduism and Hindus varying from unfair at best to just plain false were explored, and implementation of solutions, such as highlighting hard scientific evidence to debunk the so-called Aryan invasion, to overcome the colonial, leftist and governmental propaganda to divide Hindus from Hindus were examined. Dharmalaya, an extensive internet resource of Hinduism=s texts, analysis and teachings for all ages was agreed to.
The attendees were treated to insightful talks, ranging from The Hindu Case Against Christianity by Belgian scholar Dr. Koenraad Elst, Islam=s Weakness by Dr. Moorthy Muthuswamy, and remarks by noted legal scholars Bhishma Agnihotri and Ved Nanda.
