(32) First effort of Jones (1784) and the secret planning.

       Jones writes in “On the Gods of Greece, Italy and India”,

“Since Gods of all shapes and dimensions may be framed by the boundless powers of imagination, or by the frauds and follies of men, in countries never connected; but, when features of resemblance, too strong to have been accidental, are observable in different systems of polytheism, without fancy or prejudice to colour them and improve the likeness… It is my design, in this Essay, to point out such a resemblance between the popular worship of the old Greeks and Italians, and that of the Hindus.” (p. 188)

“…drawing a parallel between the Gods of the Indian and European Heathens.” (p. 190)

His writing clearly shows his atheistic views and a deep scorn for Indian religion in his heart where he tries to demean all the forms of our God by comparing them with the fictitious mythological figures of the Greeks and Romans and calling everyone heathens.

He further proceeds and tells on pages 203 and 215 that Goddesses Lakchmi, Parvati and Durga (Who are supreme Goddesses of Vaikunth and have the ability of governing the whole universe) are like Ceres, Juno and Minerva, respectively. Not only that, he writes that ‘Meru’ (the actual name is Sumeru which is a celestial hill) is the north pole of this earth planet.

He compares the most important supreme Divine Goddesses of Vaikunth with the imaginary non-vegetarian goddesses of Homeric origin. But, hold your breath, if you have a regard for Bhagwan Ram you may be shocked to read his statement where he says,

“RAMA and CRISHNA, must now be introduced, and their several attributes distinctly explained. The first of them, I believe, was the DIONYSOS of the Greeks.”

“The first poet of the Hindus was the great VALMIC, and his Ramayan is an Epick Poem… comparison of the two poems (the Dionysus and the Ramayan) would prove DIONYSUS and RAMA to have been the same person; and I incline to think, that he was RAMA, the son of CUSH, who might have established the first regular government in this part of Asia.” (pp. 214, 221)

First look to his understanding where he says that Kush was the Father of Ram. Every religious Indian knows that Bhagwan Ram had two sons, Kush and Lav who ruled Bharatvarsh after Ram.

Now come to his main statement about comparing Bhagwan Ram with Dionysus, which is like synonymizing Divinely blissful and glorious daylight with the demonically scary, spooky, and darkest midnight.

Dionysus was an imaginary figure called the god of wine and worldly enjoyments. The demented hilarity of the followers of the diabolical Dionysian cult involved frenzied and worse than cannibalistic savagery.

Jones then condemns the history and the Divinity of Manu. He writes,

“This epitome of the first Indian History… though whimsically dressed up in the form of an allegory, seem to prove a primeval tradition in this country of the universal deluge described by MOSES, and fixes consequently the time when the genuine Hindu Chronology actually begins.”

“We may suspect that all the fourteen MENUS are reducible to one, who was called NUH by the Arabs, and probably by the Hebrews; though we have disguised his name by an improper pronunciation of it. Some near relation between the seventh MENU and the Grecian MINOS may be inferred.” (pp. 198, 202)

The deluge of Moses which Jones mentions had happened only about 5,000 years ago and the deluge mentioned in the Bhagwatam, which was an occasional kalp pralaya, had happened 1,972 million years ago. The 14 manvantar of separate Manus with their definitive history is an established fact which is related to the 14 cycles of the ‘time’ element in a day of Brahma, whereas the Grecian Minos, was only a legendary king of Crete around 2800 BC whose history is unknown. A stone slab called Linear A was found at Crete which is believed to be related to the Minoan culture. The script of Linear A is still undeciphered.

Every historian knows that the Greek and Roman gods were the imaginary figures, created by the primitive people of those countries. He further says,

“…the whole crowd of gods and goddesses in ancient Rome and modern Varanes, (Varanasi of India) mean only the powers of nature, expressed in a variety of ways and by a multitude of fanciful names.”

“Be all this as it may, I am persuaded, that a connexion subsisted between the old idolatrous nations of Egypt, India, Greece, and Italy, long before they migrated to their several settlements.” (pp. 229, 232)

Their secret planning.

These two passages reveal the true format of the planning of the British that they tried to execute, and they employed their full resources to accomplish it for as long as they ruled India. (1) The first passage indicates that they wanted to destroy the authenticity and the theme of our scriptures which also includes our history, and (2) the term ‘migration’ of the second passage clearly indicates that they had already planned to establish a fallacy that Indians came from somewhere else and migrated to India.

By the first act they wanted to degrade the Hindu religion by all means and to show that the Hindu religion is no better than the religion of Greeks and ancient Romans. They also wanted to prove their imagined greatness of Christianity so that they could impose their superiority upon us.

By the second act they wanted to prove that they also had equal rights to live in India like the Hindus as both have come from outside.

If we look to their doings, during the period they ruled India, with this angle of view, everything becomes crystal clear.

A brief review of how was it executed.

1784 • In January 1784, the Asiatic Society of Bengal was established in Calcutta under the patronage of Warren Hastings and Sir William Jones was appointed its President. Its main purpose was to find ways of how to accomplish their secret aims mentioned above. Its literary works were published in the name of “Asiatic Researches.”

1784 • Towards the end of 1784 Jones produced his first essay (described above) which was the first most important work of the Asiatic Researches.

1786 • On 2nd February 1786, Jones, in his Presidential speech, produced his new fabricated theory of some unknown protolanguage that was designed to disprove the authenticity and the first originality of the Sanskrit language, and to create a ground for fabricating another theory of Aryan invasion.

1793 • Jones in his 10th Presidential speech discredits our entire history as described in the Puranas and places Chandragupt Maurya as the contemporary of Alexander by falsely telling that he was no other than Sandracottus of 312 BC.

1816 • Jones died in 1794 but in 8 years he could not produce the full thesis of his created theory of some unknown protolanguage. Another coworker of the Asiatic Researches group of people, Franz Bopp (see pp.180-181) worked hard for his whole life and then produced his first work in 1816 and the detailed work around 1852 to substantiate the ideology of Proto-Indo-European language which Jones had created.

1828 • All the articles of the Asiatic Researches including the writings of its secretary Mr. Wilson (1828) were purposely designed to be extremely derogatory and produced falsified descriptions of Hindu religion and history.

1828 • In 1828 an atheistic society, contempting the personality of God, called the Brahmo Samaj, was formed in Calcutta. Its founder and coworker received great appreciation by the British and were heartily welcomed in England and were praised by Max Müller and other writers of that group.

1847 • Max Müller was appointed by the East India Company to wrongly translate the theme of the Vedas and construct a wrong history of India. He was highly paid for this job. (Max Müller’s letters themselves reveal this secret.)

1866 • In 1866, a professor of Calcutta Sanskrit College, Pandit Taranath, was given a lot of money on a contract basis to compile the largest Sanskrit dictionary and to wrongly interpret certain Vedic words to suit the derogatory theory which the British had fabricated against the Vedic religion.

1922 • F.E. Pargiter, retired I.C.S. (Indian Civil Service) Calcutta, was appointed to write the wrong history of India. All the history writers of that period (like Smith, Keith etc.) were also assigned to write the wrong history of India, squeezing it into the frame of their fictitious story of Aryans coming to India.

From the above account you can clearly understand how well planned was their scheme.
