Below are my Note/Quotes while I read the book.
The first quote I wrote is this:
Pg. xii. “There are passages in the Torah, the Bible, and the Quran that speak of death to infidels and the necessary slaughter of others for the survival of people chosen by God.” – Bob Rae
This says God is partial, and He chooses one race over another (even when He created all the races.)
He even tells each of the three races to slaughter the other two for their survival.
In contrast, no Vedic scripture says God is partial to any race, nor God says to any race to slaughter any other race, nor Vedic God says to any race that this or that land is only theirs.
See below what Isopanishad Mantra 1 says:
“Everything animate or inanimate that is within the universe is controlled and owned by the Lord. One should therefore accept only those things necessary for himself, which are set aside as his quota, and one should not accept other things, knowing well to whom they belong.” – Translation by Bhaktivedant Swami Prabhupad
See below what Bhagavan Krishna says in Bhagavad Gita vese 3.10 and 3.11. (Source: asitis.com)
“In the beginning of creation, the Lord of all creatures sent forth generations of men and demigods, along with sacrifices for Visnu, and blessed them by saying, “Be thou happy by this yajna [sacrifice] because its performance will bestow upon you all desirable things.”
“The demigods, being pleased by sacrifices, will also please you; thus nourishing one another, there will reign general prosperity for all.”
The people of the three religions of the middle-east can not create peace within themselves and with others til they understand and live by the Vedic Dharma, the universal religion for mankind.
– Suresh Vyas
Below are some selected quotes, and some my notes, I hand-wrote when I was reading the book: Inglorious Empire by Shashi Tharoor.
The first chapter describes the loot for 200 years by the British without any mercy, and it was very disturbing to me to read/know it.
All the Bhaaratiyas, no, all educated humans should read the book.
