There have been many protestant frauds throughout the history who have tried to defame Hinduism but it's not that easy to damage Hinduism as it has survived for thousands of years and it will continue doing it. A professor called Audrey Truschke has been one of the most active one out there who turns out to be the biggest fraud at present times. She has tried everything from organizing global events to defame Hinduism to compared Swastika and Hinduism with Nazis.
The Indian genius historian @BhardwajSpeaks exposed her that how big of a fraud she is and her only aim is to defame Hinduism.
A pernicious attempt to connect Hinduism with Nazism. Audrey claims Indic philosophy inspired Nazism & Nazism inspired Hindu revivalism. She comes from a long line of protestant Indologists making such connections. But is it really so?
Now talking about the facts, Hitler never used the word Swastika himself. He used the word Hakenkreuz. This claim is FALSE. Germans did not use "Hakenkreuz" for Swastika. They used it for Christian hooked cross. Hakenkreuz is literal German translation of "hooked cross"
But what is Hakenkreuz/ Hooked cross? What did Nazis understand by it? What were they so enamored by this symbol? Did they see the symbol as mere translation of Indic symbol Swastika? Did they see the Hakenkreuz as an ancient Indian symbol? Did they borrow this Indian symbol?
Only the contemporary Nazi literature can tell us what the Nazis actually thought about Swastika. I begin by considering the views of Erich Koch. Koch was a top officer of Nazi Germany. He organised Nazi concentration camps. He was sentenced to life imprisonment after the war.
However, Erich Koch was not just a Nazi who gαssed people to dεath in concentration camps. He was a president of German protestant Church Synod. He was a scholar of Bible and would recite the entire New Testament orally. As such, his views about Hakenkreuz are very revealing.
"Truly, Christ has returned. The second coming of Christ has happened. Christ has now come in the form of Hitler. He has come to exterminate the Marxists and the irreligious. He now comes not with a cross but with the hooked cross (Haken Kreuz)" - Erich Koch.
Koch was a brutal, ruthless Nazi of the first order. He personified Nazi barbarity by playing a leading role in the murdεr of thousands of Jews and their deportation to camps. Yet, even in his post war testimony, he insisted that he was doing nothing but the work of Christ!
Koch was not alone. Even Joseph Goebbels, one of Hitler's closest acolytes, held similar eschatological Christian views about "hooked cross". He saw Nazism as an apocalyptic movement that personifies Christ's mission of destroying Anti-Christian Jewish and Marxist forces.
At the end of his autobiographical diary named Michael, Joseph Goebbels declares- "The war we are now waging today is a struggle between Jesus Christ and Marx"
Hans Schemm was an educator and a top minister of Nazi Germany. He famously declared -"Our religion is Christ, our politics is motherland". Explaining the meaning of Nazi Hakenkreuz, he also alluded to Hitler as a personification of Christ.
"In its first appearance, the cross used to be straight because Christ had come with love. Now, the day of judgement has arrived. The cross is hooked (referring to Hakenkreuz) because Christ has come with wrath. Redeem yourself" - Hans Schemm
Christian eschatology was at the core of Nazi ideology since inception. When Nazi party was founded, Hitler announced 25-point Program. Point 24 says Nazi Party advocates "positive Christianity". It "combats Jewish spirit within & around us"
It is clear that Hakenkreuz of Nazis had absolutely nothing to Swastika of Hindus. Nazi Hakenkreuz had a Christian eschatological concept of second coming of the Christ with the hooked cross. Why then has the Nazi hooked cross been dissociated from its Christian background?
Why has Nazi Hooked Cross been dissociated with its Christian roots & identified with Hindu swastika? There is absolutely NO EVIDENCE that Nazis borrowed this symbol from India. In fact, hooked cross has always been one of Church motifs. There is Hooked Cross motif in Vatican
After Nazis lost the war & were disgraced when their crimes were out for the world to see, any association with Nazis was deemed unpopular. Christian apologists spilled a lot of ink to 1) Dissociate Nazism from Christianity. 2) Dissociate Hooked Cross with Christian cross
Hitler's autobiography Mein Kampf was translated into English by Christian pastor James Murphy. He translated "Hooked Cross" as "Swastika" which was a visually similar but completely unrelated symbol. "Swastika" coming from "Swasti" (well being) was infact truly opposite to it
With this intentionally flawed translation, he wanted to kiII two birds in one shot. 1) Dissociate Nazis with Christianity. 2) Associate Nazis with Hinduism. This was later followed by all other translators.
So deeply entrenched and widely prevalent is this propaganda that even NCERT textbook says "Hitler understood the significance of rituals ....and used ancient Swastika to install unity"
The evidence exists for all to see In their rallies, the Nazis frequently used Hooked Cross in association with cross. Here is a Nazi rally at berlin. Notice the hooked cross in association with the biblical cross on the flag
During Nazi era, both the cross and hooked cross were very frequently intertwined and exchanged for one another. Here is the official flag of German Christian movement. Notice the hooked cross signifying the second coming of Christ depicted in place of Jesus on the cross
Berlin. Luther day 1933. Speech by bishop Hossenfelder The symbol of hooked cross inscribed on Biblical cross can be clearly see
Hooked cross on Antoniter Church altar. 1935. Devotees visiting the church used to touch the hooked cross and utter "Das ist Jesus Christus" ( "That is Jesus Christ"). How can this be Hindu symbol?
The meaning and interpretation of hooked cross and its association with Christianity will be explored further. Taking a brief detour to Audrey's thread. Here, she associates Nazism with Hindu revivalism and Savarkar again.
She claims that Savarkar's swastika is actually Nazi. She claims that Hindu Nationalists intentionally displayed the angle of Swastika midway between Nazi and Indian uses? But is that really so? This tweet completely exposes Audrey's ignorance.
Audrey claims that any Swastika depicted with a slanting angle is not Hindu Swastika but Nazi symbol. This betrays Audrey's utter ignorance about the subject. Hindu Swastikas are often depicted with a slanting angle. It is very common to see slanting swastikas on Hindu temples.
It is funny that Audrey associates Savarkar's book Hindutva with Nazism She would not have made such clueless & ignorant remarks had she read that book. Far from showing any anti-semitic Nazism, Savarkar actually expresses in that book his desire for a Jewish homeland in Israel
Like her protestant Indologist predecessors, Audrey connects Hinduism with Nazism. Like them, Audrey also has links with Christian missionaries. Why should her personal religion be our problem? Well, but for the fact that they don't keep it confined to their personal space!
Ausrey's father-in-law Nathan Rehn is a pastor belonging to a fundamentalist Christian organization "Win India for Christ”.
Like Aurangzeb whom she admires, Audrey's father in law is also an outspoken critic of "idol worship".
These protestant Indologists ignore that the Nazi Hooked Cross was conceived in a Christian context. Hitler’s upbringing was at the Benedictine Christian Monastery in Austria which features hooked cross motifs. It was from a Christian milieu that they picked up "hooked cross"
While protestant Indologists continue to manufacture fake association between Hinduism and Nazism, German bishops have recently admitted their role. "We were complicit in Nazi crimes"- German Bishops.
Apart from all other facts, Audrey's love for Pakistan is also clearly seen here. Good that now we know everything about her now and nobody will ever believe this piece of garbage.
