A Kerala model Aryan Invasion is to Set Sail 
20/05/2011 14:25:24  



An ongoing Archaeological Excavation of Kerala Council for Historical Research [KCHR] at Pattanam is in Kerala. 



Prof. C. I. Issac





Pattanam Excavations - fabricated data and concealed truth.



Time has proved that KCHR is an all Marxist cart of quasi-governmental organization intended to rewrite and forge the history of this land. Now they are busy with bringing to light for a past of Kerala without an Indian flavor. Currently an opportunity was assigned at Pattanam, near the archaic port-town Muzris [Kodungalloor] to KCHR by the ruling Marxist Party Government. The archaeological excavations sponsored by the Government of Kerala at Pattanam, near Kodungalloor, [It was a port city from the time of the epics to the devastating flood of River Periyar in 1314 CE], is in the midst of controversies such as academic depreciation, fabrication of data to fit the political ideology of the Left historians and above all providing cultural stimulus to religious proselytism of the Christian Church in Kerala. 

The Pattanam excavations are supervised by the modern historians with blind commitment to the Marxist Party. The director of the ongoing excavation work, Dr. P. J. Cheriyan has worked on “Vayalar – Punnappra Communist sponsored violence in the erstwhile Princely State of Travancore [now in south-Kerala]” as topic for his PhD dissertation. Above all he is a known co-passenger of the bandwagon of CPM. The Chairman of KCHR, Prof. K.N. Panicker [the hero of Arun Shourie’s work ‘Eminent Historians’], which backs the Pattanam excavations is specialized in ‘peasant protests and revolts of the 20th century in Malabar’. Some others in the consultant panel such as K. N. Ganesh, P.K. Michel Tharaken, and M. R. Raghava Varier are not only just left historians but have articulated their skill in interpreting and fabricating the notorious communal riot, the Moplah Riots of 1921, as freedom struggle as well as this spine chilling Hindu carnage as peasant uprising against their land lords [janmis]. Not only have the eminent archaeologists of integrity but even knowledgeable scholars of Kerala such as Prof. M. G. S. Narayanan, Prof. K. V. Raman, etc has been discarded from the official consultant list for the ‘Pattanam Heritage Project’. [The ongoing archaeological excavation is named by the authorities as such]. 
 
So far millions of rupees have been spent by the Government of Kerala for the publicity for the Pattanam excavations in print and visual media. The director of the project P. J. Cheriyan who has no paper or book on archeology to his credit hitherto has announced that Pattanam excavations provide evidence of a pre-Brahminical South India. Is it intended to attest that Aryan Invasion theory applies to Kerala and all Brahmins of Kerala are Aryans and others are Dravidians? 

The minister for cultural affairs M. A. Baby has made an official declaration of holding “Benale” festival – an Italian festival – from Kodungalloor to Kochi [Cochin] reminiscent of cultural Rome. After Valentine’s Day, Benale is ready to counter traditional Hindu celebrations with globalised aroma. It is, no doubt, intended to cultivate an alien culture in around the capital city of an ancient Hindu kingdom, the Cheras. Millions of rupees have been announced for this festival and setting up of 25 museums and for heritage site status from UNESCO. 

It is an orchestrated strategy to identify Pattanam as ancient Muzris and subsequently to corroborate it with the mythical arrival of Thomas, the disciple of Jesus, in 52 of C.E as well as his conversion of native Hindus to Christianity. The ongoing excavation at Pattanam has taken the chronology of the site to circa 100 CE to juxtapose with the religious conversion theory of Thomas. With this objective archaeology and history is concealed, fabricated and misapprehended. The Left Front also intends to hijack the traditional Christian vote-bank which has remained intact with the congress and UDF till now. Such is the strategy to turn conversion myth of St. Thomas into history and grant legitimacy to ongoing conversion of Hindus and interpret it as mute cultural synthesis. Such is the eagerness to fabricate facts and substantiate that Christianity was established in Kerala a millennium before the formation of Hindu society and hence the socio-cultural growth of Hindus is based on foundation contributed by the Christian Church here.   

Conclusions have already been drawn before the Pattanam excavation was launched. It is intended to prove that Kerala as a geo-cultural zone had little interaction with the rest of India. The socio-cultural growth of Kerala has been developed by its interaction with the Mediterranean. If evidences of Kerala’s interaction with Greater India exists, it is just marginal and which developed by the last few centuries. This is the constructed conclusion of Pattanam excavation. Hence the question comes before us: “Is Aryan invasion theory to set sail in the South?

IN DEFENSE OF THE SACRED--Prof. C. I. Issac 

he study on religious aspects of Hindus in American Academy of Religion [AAR]is now, particularly some scholar elements, deliberately attempting to tarnish itstrue image through some,

said to be „scholarly productions‟. The book „Invadingthe Sacred‟

edited by Krishnan Ramaswamy and others gives a thumbnail picture of itsdepth and intensity. AAR is an important and influential institution of academic studies

of religion in USA. “Unlik

e in India, the academic study of religion in USA is a major

discipline involving over 8000 university professors, most of who are members of AAR”

1

.

Therefore this academy‟s anti

-Hindu researches will represent the Hindu imagenegatively in America and elsewhere. Moreover these anti-Hinduism academic studiesare now the cruel weapon in the hands of Christian churches in USA. By which they areeffectively spreading Hindu-phobia, the term coined by Rajiv Malhotra

2

through allpossible means. Thus the spontaneity and virginity of pagan religion is now subjected tothe malicious exercise of intolerant and hegemonic academic-Church nexus. Under theacademic support from the AAR they

projects Hinduism as a „pig

-pen of the East and adirty dignity destroyi

ng‟ religion

3

.

 The malady is that a set of Indian intelligentsia of Colonial subjectivity in India aswell as abroad attests the stance of the spoke-persons of Hindu-phobia. To themsecularism is the condemnation of pagan religious convictions in general andparticularly of Hindus. In the direction of Hindu, secularism is an immaterial concept. Intheir tradition secularism is more than toleration since the days of Vedas and it is thesynonym to the recognition of all creeds and ideologies as means to the realization ofthe Ultimate Truth

4

. Thus

Sanathana 

 

Dharma 

[eternal truth], the core of Hindu life,

believes that “All religions are the outcome of the quest of man for God”

5

. “All the Hindu

scriptures have upheld this view. Therefore there was never any room for religiousconflict in India

6

. On the other hand, secularism of the West has no separate entityfrom the Semitic/Christian traditions. Religion and state apparatus at present in theWest are inseparable entities like Siamese twins

7

. Above all Anti-Hinduism studiesparticularly in the West are receiving the patronage of aforesaid class of Indianintellectuals. Similarly those who attempt to study Hindu religion is using Semitic yardsticks to comprehend Hinduism is yet another paradox. Such studies are, no doubt,heralded by certain pre-conceived notions.The centre of the faith of Semitic religions from the Garden of Eden to the pulpitof the day are pivoting on non-rational and illogical canons such as sex, animal like sexrelations, sin of conjugal relations, castration, wrath of god, selfish god, human sacrifice,hell, material or worldly enjoyment guarantees to the souls in the heaven, etc. Most of  

2

its tenets are self contradictory. All the above contentions of the Semitic religions are nomore debated in the Hindu religious texts or subject to discussion in the Hinduspiritualistic scenario. To a Hindu all these are not at all a question of debate. Accordingto Ve

das, the authority of Hindu religious convictions, man is “

amruthasya puthraha 

[Children of immortality] and non-dual relation between the Creator and the Creation.More over there are time tested social mechanisms in the Hindu ways of life to sort-outall such questions raised by the Semitic religions.

“The fact that Hinduism was able to

resist the onslaught of Islam for over 750 years, and has emerged stronger after over150 years challenge by Christianity, has now made the West realize that what it hadpreviously considered to be no more than primitive superstitions, held together by

strange system of social organization which was termed „caste‟, must have some

inherent values of high signi

ficance”

8

. Caste was not a curse and was an organicmechanism in the traditional Hindu society. Its harmonious utilization maintained themomentum and the un-interrupted continuity of the Hindu social-fabric in the sub-continent

9

.Semitic religion claims that they are monotheistic. Simultaneously they acceptthe divine existence of arch-angel and angels. Gabriel and Michael are messengers ofthe other world of the Semitic religions. The Holy Spirit became an instrumental to theImmaculate Conception in Mary. Christianity claims trinity of god and the extraordinaryinfluence of saints before the Father and Son. Such a hierarchical structure of Father,Son, Holy Ghost, angels and saints altogether deactivate the rationale of itsmonotheistic claims. The pantheon of Hindu is static and constant; on the other handthe frontiers of saints in the Church is ever expanding phenomenon. The utmostabsurdity is that the same Christian Church ridicules Hindus as polytheistic. Wrappingup of the said innate contradictions of the Faith is the main concern of the present-dayacademic study of religion in USA.The religion Hinduism is the only rationale and surviving creed. That is whyholistic medicine [for instance

yoga 

] and business schools of America counting it as asource of their hope. In order to negate this growing acceptance of Hindu religion in theWest,

the Christian back studies on Hinduism is overflowed with „political use of psychology‟

10

. Above all it is an essential condition for the survival of the Church in the

new millennium. That is why Christiane Hartnack in her work „Psychoanalysis inColonial India‟ [see p 76 of the book] openly claims that “Hindus became

psychologically stuck in a dark age, while Europeans had proceeded to psychologicallyadvanced stage

11

.

The present academic and theological exercise going on in the Church of theWest, especially in USA, is targeting to vulgarize Hindu pantheons and sages in order toneutralize Hindu morale. The theme

of the book “Invading the Sacred ” is widely spreading „ Hindu-phobia‟ of USA; the Christian conspiracy against the sacred structure
