Subject: Request to immediately withdraw the advertisement ‘Griha Pravesh’ of Havells wire
hurting religious sentiments of Hindus and render an unconditional apology.

Dear Sir,

We write to you on behalf of Hindu Janajagruti Samiti. The Hindu Janajagruti Samiti is a Non governmental organisation working for religious awakening of Hindus and bringing Hindus and other Organisations on common platform for the welfare of the Nation and the Hindu Dharma. Our details can be obtained at www.hindujagruti.org.
We came across your advertisement ‘Griha Pravesh’ ( 0.41 sec) on the you tube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O1XJZsOJFqE and the television advertisements reported to us by devout Hindus. This advertisement shows a couple performing a Vastu Shanti ritual (Homa) and the wife drops the steel spoon offering the oblations (ghee) in the homa (fire) due to heat. The couple’s son who is sitting nearby watching this gets up and tries to think of any idea to avoid the heat and he sees a box of Havells wire and gets any idea and makes a spoon like structure from Havells wire to offer the oblations in the fire and gives it to his mother who is shown using it comfortably. There is then this dialogue “Havells wire no fire”. This has made fun and mockery of one of the most important Hindu ritual ‘Vastu Shanti’
This advertisement has hurt religious sentiments of Hindus for the following reasons.

  1. Use of Hindu ritual for commercial purpose rather than religious purpose. This is an offence as per Indian Trade Mark Act 1999.
  2. The spoon for offering oblation (pali / sruva) is made of a particular material (wood) and has a definitive shape which cannot be replaced by any other form and material like wire.
  3. This advertisement has distorted the Hindu ritual and given wrong information about Hindu dharma globally and to the younger generation which reduces the effectiveness of the ritual and is sinful.

It is quite surprising to see that an International Company like Havells which has a big market in India playing with the religious sentiments of Hindus. Continuation of such an act will definitely result in adding insult to injury of Hindus which in turn will boycott your products and thus affect your sales globally. Would you dare to use Muslim or Christian religion for commercial purpose?
We request you to immediately withdraw the advertisement ‘Griha Pravesh’ of Havells wire hurting religious sentiments of Hindus immediately and render an unconditional apology.

We await your prompt response and action.
Yours Sincerely.
Dr.Manoj V. Solanki.

Subject
:-Removal of the objectionable advertisement from TV advertising as well as Internet media

Shriman Jee,

This is to bring to your notice that we have received many phone calls about the objectionable Havells wire advertisement

that your marketing team is broadcasting both on internet and TV.we also have watched the said advertisement and found it
highly objectionable.

The ad is depicting a Hindu family performing Griha Prawesh Pooja (House warming Ceremony),and during the same Yajna lady of the house has been deliberately shown using a cutlery spoon for aahuti to the Yajna in place of Sruvaa which is hurting her , followed by her son bringing the Havells wire for offering aahuti to Yajna (fire).

Importantly Sruvva is prescribed by our vedic texts to be used during offerings and you are trying to change the very concept mentioned in our scriptures.

Though we appreciate feeling of small son towards his mother, we out rightly reject the depiction of using wire for offerings in the yajna, this is an insult to our vedic culture and Hindu way of worship. We are highly offended by this representation in commercials.
For the commercial interest your organization cannot hurt Hindus who hold the Yajnas pious and utmost religious , by using Yajna and then portrayal of same in bad light is not acceptable to Hindus of the country. We request you to kindly take serious note of this and with immediate effect withdraw this advertisement for all the mediums of publicity.

I am herewith sharing the link for your further corrective action. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O1XJZsOJFqE
Thanking you and Jai Shri Ram

NDTV and CNN-IBN are 2 of the most known Anti-Hindu Media channels in India
most known Anti-Hindu Media channels in India

New Delhi, India (CHAKRA) Indian’s take pleasure in the fact that India is renowned as the world’s largest democracy.  However under the disguise of being massively populated yet governed democratically through a transparent electoral process, lies the truth: India’s democracy runs at the cost of Hindu rights.  This is the case due to the enactment of ongoing government policies related to actions of constant appeasement to minorities—the Muslims and Christians of India.  In other words it’s a form of reverse discrimination but to a degree that has become utterly unacceptable.
Primarily, this form of appeasement is seen through the biases in media that have become so prevalent that even an ordinary news reader, lacking any professional, analytical skills can point them out.  Take NDTV for example.  There will not be a day that goes by on this website, where an anti-Hindu article is not posted on the front page headlines.  Sadly it’s a good day for Hindus, if only one hateful headline is posted since it has become the norm to bash Hindus daily through a multitude of articles.
Furthermore, when there is major headline news such as the Mumbai attacks of November 2008, news reporters on sites such as NDTV write with the utmost care to not point out whether a Muslim might have been involved in the attacks even though the evidence of the crime proves guilty. Contrary to this, when a Hindu person is mentioned even as a possible suspect, news reporters in India have no shame or reluctance in typing negative headlines that defame Hindu’s across the country and world—when nothing has been proven.  The question is why is this being accepted by a majority in India?  If India comprises the world’s largest Hindu population then why are people not speaking out about such an injustice?
The pattern and consistency of this bias is clearly evident, yet people choose not to question such forms of abuse.  Just because a majority exists in a country, does not mean that they deserve constant criticism for merely being a majority because it is obvious that in India’s case, the voice is not of the Hindu’s.  In the desperation to appease and prove oneself to be a democratic country to the outside world arena, India’s government and media have forgotten to represent the Hindu majority of the country.  One may say, that how can such a misrepresentation be possible in a country that is presumably very transparent in its governing practices?  It is important to note that a large portion of the Indian population is made up of people living in poverty.  When a large number of people are poverty stricken, it is easy to manipulate this population to follow any hidden agenda that a person running for office might have.  So although at the surface the process seems clean and mildly bureaucratic, it is at the grassroots level that the corruption can be seen.  How does this all relate back to the biases of Indian media?
When vulnerable minds are manipulated at desperate times, it can be easy to change their way of thinking and as this process continues for years at a time, perspectives of the general public change in line with what they are being fed, whether it is directly by the government, or by a party minister, or even by various media types.  This manipulation can be so powerful, that people fail to see things that are so vehemently against their own people. In turn, they see themselves as progressive thinkers and go along with whatever is being said without stopping to question the abuse of their rights.  However, this infringement of rights has come to be so evident and intense that it cannot be ignored any longer.  The media cannot get away with portraying Hindu’s as the so called “bad guys” or “villains” while others are always portrayed as the victims plainly because of their numbers.  The reality is that the Hindu population is decreasing in India while the Muslim and Christian populations are growing in their respective majority-based countries.  Hindu’s need to start paying attention to the inappropriate and unnecessary bias displayed in media and fight for what is not fair.  If we do not help our own kind then no one else will until it is too late and there is no turning back to recuperate what has been lost.

Who owns the media in India ?
Let us see the ownership of different media agencies.
NDTV: A very popular TV news media is funded by Gospels of Charity in Spain Supports Communism. Recently it has developed a soft corner towards Pakistan because Pakistan President has allowed only this channel to be aired in Pakistan . Indian CEO Prannoy Roy is co-brother of Prakash Karat, General Secretary of the Communist party of India . His wife and Brinda Karat are sisters.
India Today: which used to be the only national weekly which supported BJP is now bought by NDTV!! Since then the tone has changed drastically and turned into Hindu bashing.
CNN-IBN: This is 100 percent funded by Southern Baptist Church with its branches in all over the world with HQ in US.. The Church annually allocates $800 million for promotion of its channel. Its Indian head
is Rajdeep Sardesai and his wife Sagarika Ghosh.

Times group list:
Times Of India, Mid-Day, Nav-Bharth Times, Femina, Filmfare, Vijaya Karnataka, Times now (24- hour news channel) and many more…
Times Group is owned by Bennett & Coleman. ‘World Christian Council does 80 percent of the Funding, and an Englishman and an Italian equally share balance 20 percent. The Italian Robertio Mindo is a close relative of Sonia Gandhi.
Star TV: It is run by an Australian, who is supported by St. Peters Pontifical Church Melbourne.
Hindustan Times: Owned by Birla Group, but hands have changed since Shobana Bhartiya took over. Presently it is working in Collaboration with Times Group.
The Hindu: English daily, started over 125 years has been recently taken over by Joshua Society, Berne , Switzerland .. N. Ram’s wife is a Swiss national.
Indian Express: Divided into two groups. The Indian Express and the New Indian Express (southern edition) ACTS Christian Ministries have major stake in the Indian Express and latter is still with the Indian counterpart.
The Statesman: It is controlled by Communist Party of India.
Asian Age and Deccan Chronicle: Is owned by a Saudi Arabian Company with its chief Editor M.J. Akbar.
Gujarat riots which took place in 2002 where Hindus were burnt alive, Rajdeep Sardesai and Bharkha Dutt working for NDTV at that time got  around 5 Million Dollars from Saudi Arabia to cover only Muslim
victims, which they did very faithfully.. . Not a single Hindu family  was interviewed or shown on TV whose near and dear ones had been burnt alive, it is reported.

Tarun Tejpal of < Tehelka.com regularly gets blank cheques from Arab countries to target BJP and Hindus only, it is said.
The ownership explains the control of media in India by foreigners.

The result is obvious.

In February 2002 the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) along with other international broadcast networks reported on the outbreak of communal violence in Godhra, in the Indian state of Gujarat. From the BBC report one would have got the impression that Hindus were not even victims of the violence. Instead Hindus were blamed for the violence which affected all communities. It is a sad indictment of a one time respected international news corporation that the BBC would target Hindus this way.

BBC online screenshotHowever it was far from unique or out of character. In reporting the secessionist terrorism in Kashmir, the BBC has long been sympathetic to the terrorists, refusing to even call them ‘terrorist’. Why? Because the victims of the terror are Hindus. Indeed the BBC averts its gaze from the indigenous inhabitants of Kashmir who to this day languish in refugee camps simply because they are Hindu. The BBC pays at best lip service to the ethnic cleansing and genocide of Hindus from Kashmir.
As hinted at this is far from an isolated occurrence. Only this year the director-general Mark Thomson candidly admitted that some faiths and communities get more favourable and sensitive treatment than others, and that the broadcasting behemoth has to consider the possibility of violent threats should it push ahead with certain types of programme. So there you have it, plain and open. With this knowledge the inherently anti-Hindu nature of the BBC becomes clear and there are many examples of this bigotry and colonialist racist mindset to choose from. In fact they are legion.
In 2003 at the Hindu Youth UK festival the BBC sent one of its token brown face Indian governors to lecture the youth on how Hindu extremism was a threat in India turning it into a Hindutva Fascist state .When asked to provide proof of this by HHR and why the BBC never reports on human rights abuses on Kashmiri Hindus or Bangladeshi Hindus he reacted in the usual function by looking for the nearest exit and developing a sudden inability to speak.
In 2005 HHR was asked by BBC Radio 4 to participate in research for an upcoming programme about the commonality shared between different faith communities. It did not take long to transpire that they actually were trying to highlight differences. When HHR did not cooperate the result was an abusive, arrogant rant down the telephone by the programme’s producer, upset at not having found her pliable ‘Gunga Din’ guinea pig.
In 2007 HHR was asked for its input into the BBC World Service programme about religion. Having initially refused because of allegations that HHR was funded by the BJP and RSS (which actually fund and are linked to NHSF, not that is exactly a big secret anyway), the BBC retracted and then became rather more inviting.
Nevertheless as soon as I walked into the interview the whole conversation was moulded around making HHR look extremist. Accusations of damaging MF Hussain’s paintings were refuted without much difficulty, considering that HHR’s protest was peaceful. Next on being asked my own beliefs, I said there was much enrichment from looking at Sufi poetry and Jewish Kabbalah. Yet this brought indignation as most Hindus would apparently not agree. So in a few minutes I moved from being boxed as a narrow-minded extremist and a broad-minded ‘progressive’, both of which were problematic. No surprise that my entire interview was shelved as HHR was not deemed extremist enough.

Fortunately they found another well known UK Hindu Organisation to be desperate enough for fame that they became the necessary broadcast fodder to ‘prove’ the existence of Hindu extremism later which later on resulted with their front man wrongly portrayed as a Hindu Fuhrer with connections with the VHP in a widely published British Newspaper.
Above all it was the treatment of the Indian Guru Sathya Sai Baba in the BBC’s ‘Secret Swami’ which was the apex of all its anti-Hindu ideology. First broadcast in 2004, the television documentary vilified one of India’s most revered holy men as money grabbing child abusing sex pest. HHR complained within the time limits set by the BBC’s own procedures. But the BBC claimed to have not seen these emails and hence the complaint was dismissed as being outside the time period. In 2011(?) the programme was referred to in a series of articles on Sathya Sai Baba passing away. HHR again complained but was told it should have complained back in 2004.
When the proof was provided that it actually had the BBC Trust in its appeal them moved the goal posts to dismiss it anyway. Yet the BBC still earns royalties from selling this programme abroad and ensuring that it is seen as gospel truth.
The accusations against Sathya Sai Baba have particular poignancy. Soon after the death of Baba, one of the BBC most loved, respected and famous figures also left his earthly abode. Jimmy Savile (coincidentally born 1926 and passed away 2011 same years as Sathya Sai Baba) was known to millions not just as a radio DJ and television presenter, but as a tireless campaigner in raising millions for charity, most notably the Stoke Mandeville hospital for children.
Savile also raised the recognition of Broadmoor in tackling mental health issues and worked unpaid as a hospital porter. Yet only a year after his death explosive revelations astounded the public. For decades Savile had used his position of celebrity, trust and charity work to beguile to public just so that he could prey on society’s most vulnerable. Teenage girls, boys even younger, and hospital patients were subject to his vicious and unrelenting sexual predatory behaviour for decades totaling around 4-5 hundred alleged victims.
The BBC colluded in his efforts as he held a vice grip over them and was allegedly allowed to run a child sex ring with total impunity within BBC premises . Savilegate was however just the tip of the iceberg. In 2001 veteran BBC broadcaster Jonathan King was sentenced to prison due to getting away with years of child abuse. A brash, arrogant character, King like Savile regarded himself as untouchable. Since Savilegate broke other BBC presenters and entertainers like Freddie Starr, John Peel and Dave Lee Travis have been dragged into the melee, especially as Savile’s collusion in child abuse with Gary Glitter has been revealed.So the BBC has more secrets within it’s dark walls than the secrets it makes upon others .
If we compare the lives of Savile and Sathya Sai Baba it makes an interesting contrast. The former used his fake concern for the vulnerable to gain aristocratic status in the BBC so that he could rape and abuse at random. He was the BBC’s original superstar so much so that it was blasphemous to speak ill of him in the suffocating totalitarian environment. Then there is Sathya Sai Baba who with scant recognition from the BBC has provided fresh water to some of India’s poorest villages as well as high-tech medical care and first class education to poverty stricken millions for decades and his followers continue his social work programmes across the country and abroad. Notice the contrast ?.
Where the allegations of child abuse against Sathya Sai Baba have been unsubstantiated and even retracted, the BBC continues to recycle the old hatred. Yet the very person the BBC promoted as a selfless worker for charity has turned out to have been a serial sex pest who molested and raped for decades with the full knowledge of the BBC.
When Lord Patten, chairman of the BBC Trust, speaks of rebuilding confidence with the public, he should perhaps start with this basic anomaly and set the record straight on Sathya Sai Baba and help end to all other Hindu Bashing that the BBC continues to indulge in because it doesn’t look good on the image of the UK when we have British ministers traveling to India hoping to boost trade but at the same time its own media is busy looking at the ‘Hindoo’ through a colonial lens in a country that is a ‘Hindu’ majority.Or like some believers would say after seeing the events with the BBC, that Karma has a good way to catch up sooner or later.
