The point of this thread is to expose Hinduism as a racist religion that justifies social hierarchy based on a persons's skin colour.


The Hindu scriptures known as the "Vedas" typically portray the Hindu gods as being blonde and fair skinned.





"...hadst pleasure in their lauds, O Indra golden-haired."

- [Rig Veda 10]




" [Agni] With flame for hair: to him we seek."

- [Rig Veda 3]




" Men call on thee whose hair is flame [Agni], to be the bearer of their gifts."

- [Rig Veda 1]




" O Surya with the golden-haired , ascend for us day after day." - [Rig Veda 10]




"To him , Rudra the strong , great , fair-complexioned I utter forth a mighty hymn of praises".

- [Rig Veda 2]




"To her ...to this golden-locked Nirriti (goddess of misfortune), I have rendered obeisance." - [Adharva Veda]




"Indra , the Iron One with yellow beard and yellow hair."

- [Rig Veda 10]




"with tawny hair, Savitr hath raised before"

- [Yajur Veda 4]




"Savitar, golden-haired , hath lifted eastward"

- [Yajur Veda 4]




"HE [Agni] in midair's expanse hath golden tresses"

- [Rig Veda 1]




"For new prosperity we seek to Agni, him whose course is splendid, gold-haired, excellently bright"

- [Rig Veda 3]



No wonder the Nazis were obsessed with the Hindu religion , it's full of blonde haired gods.

The Hindu scriptures also glorifies the Aryan Invasion & the slaughtering of native dark skinned Indians called the "Dasyus" with the help of the gods.





"By slaying the Dasyus (natives), he [Indra] protected the Aryan color"

- [Rig Veda 3]




"Indra protected in battle the Aryan worshipper, he subdued the lawless for Manu (Noah) , he conquered the black skin."

- [Rigveda, Book 1, Indra 130.8 (I.CXXX.8)]




"the thunderer who bestowed on his white friends the fields, bestowed the sun, bestowed the waters."

- [Rigveda, Book 1, Indra 100.18 (I.C.18)




"Thou to the son of Vidathin, Rjisvan, Thou smotest down the swarthy fifty thousand, and rentest forts as age consumes a garment."

- [Rig Veda , Indra - 4.16.13]




"Active and bright have they come forth, impetuous in speed like bulls, driving the black skin far away."

- [Rig veda , Soma Pavamana - 9.41.1]




The sacrificer poured out thanks to his god for "scattering the slave bands of black descent", and for stamping out "the vile Dasyan colour."

- [ Rig Veda . II.20.7, II.12.4 ]




"O'er Sire and Mother they have roared in unison bright with the verse of praise, burning up riteless men, Blowing away with supernatural might from earth and from the heavens the swarthy skin which Indra hates."

- [Rig Veda , Soma Pavamana - 9.73.5]




" Indra in battles help his Aryan worshipper, he who hath hundred helps at hand in every fray, in frays that win the light of heaven. Plaguing the lawless he gave up to Manu's seed the dusky skin; Blazing, 'twere, he burns each covetous man away, he burns, the tyrannous away."

- [Rig Veda , Book 1]


(The Aryan invaders viewed the dark skinned Natives as distastefully and with abhorrence)



"Black skin is impious" (Dasam varnam adharam)

- [ Rigveda, Book 2, Indra 12.4 (2.XXII.4) [ Muir Pt.I, p.43, II, p.284, 323 etc.]




"the vile Dasyan (native) colour."

- [Rigveda, Book 2, Indra 20.7, 12.4 (2.XX.7, 2.XII.4)





“ the black skin, the hated of Indra"

- [Rigveda, Book 9, Soma Pavamana .IX.73.5 ]




"Thou, Indra, art the destroyer of all the cities, the slayer of the Dasyus , the prosperer of man, the lord of the sky."

- [Rigveda, Book 8, Indra 87.6 (8.LXXXVII.6) [ Muir I.175 ]


We can still see the cultural influences the religion has on Indian society.

Metaphors aren't racist nor is having 'golden hair'.

and yet, most hindus seem to be dark haired.
really doesn't seem to be that the hindus or their gods are very racist since the hindus are capable of accepting gods that don't look like them and their gods seem to have chosen a people that don't look much like the gods...

just saying..

Yeah, Hindus and Buddhists are just so "evil." In the meantime, some bomb just exploded in a crowded shopping district after someone just shouted Allahu Akbar... But Hindus and Buddhists are "evil."

That’s a little bit beyond the truth. The group of religions we call Hinduism has grown out a group of cultural influences, one of which was Indo-European.

From here we get the idea the Aryans (early Indo-Europeans, not the nonsense that the Nazi’s and other people masturbate too) came from the urheimat (homeland), and took over the Indus Valley culture.

Indo-Europeans? Well you and I are typing in an Indo-European language (English, a Germanic Languge, which is a branch on the IE language family tree). Chances are there were people who did not quite appear as we’d thing Indian Sub continent people did amongst that group.

So no I don’t see Hinduism as racist, not in the modern sense.

If we were going for that line of thought (lets try) the Asier of the northern Germanic people, fought with the Vanier, who might have been non Indo-European inhabitants of Scandinavia? The Tuatha de Dannan beat the Fir Bolg, who might have been non IE Irish etc etc. The legends of Giants (Jötunns), cyclopes , Fomorians, Ettin etc, are very not complimentary on many potentially not Indo-European people. They were evil, and deformed. Are we thus saying all these are racist too? Who knows perhaps they are?

I’ve bigger issue with a caste system still in existence in the modern world to be honest.

Nowhere in the Hindu scripture does it say the gods were blue. They were according to the Vedic scripture "fair complexioned".

The Gods were "shinning ones". So were the Tuatha de Dannan, some of the Asier, I am pretty sure if we had more Gaulish mythology they'd have that too.

So no not blue (possibly a modern additon, but you picked the art work neighbour). Gannish is an non Indo-European god too. As I said, Hinduism is a synthesis of a number of cultures, not all of them from the same language and cultural back ground.

You need to prove racism. Now is their racism in India. Yes. Every country has it to some extent. Is the religious racist? No. Next you will say Germanic Paganism is inherently racist, due to National Socialists co-opting the symbols.

And its not because they are "Buddhists" but because they are not very good humans! Well actually given our species history ,they are typical humans.

Judge religion not on the people who claim it, but ignore it's teachings. After all many Nazi's were good Christians
Oops Godwin, shoo Godwin shoo.

Because in ancient civilisation (with the exception of Egyptian) people cannot tell between Dark, Blue and Green. Krishna was described as "Nila" which is the word for both dark and blue. But for artistic purpose, they opt for Blue rather than Dark (as both colours, as we define with our modern eyes, was one and the same for ancient humans).



www.quora.com...



In order to get the nectar from the bottom of the ocean, all the Gods and the demons decided to come together and churn the ocean which is commonly known as Samudra Manthan. While churning the ocean, many things like precious gems, gold, silver, animals, Goddess Laxmi, etc came out of the ocean. All of these were then divided between the Gods and the demons.

However, a deadly poison named Halahala, also came out of the ocean as a by-product.

THE POISON WAS SO DEADLY THAT WHATEVER CAME INTO ITS CONTACT SOON PERISHED.

Finally, lord Brahma and Vishnu prayed to lord Shiva to come to their rescue.

Since lord Shiva is known to be extremely powerful, he drank the deadly poison which soon started spreading throughout his body turning it into blue. After knowing this, Goddess Parvati entered Shiva’s throat in the form of a Mahavidya and controlled the spread of the poison. Thus lord Shiva came to be called as the Neelkanth, literally meaning the blue throat!.
