THE IMPORTANCE OF KSHATRIYA DHARMA
The Gandhian ideal of non-violence was used only to discourage Hindus from asserting themselves in the political field, even though the more leftist political parties dominant in the country indulged in corruption and violence, often on a large scale. It became part of a strategy of anti-Hindu forces to discredit Hinduism, which had little to do with promoting Gandhi's policies as a whole. Gandhi was always proud to be a Hindu and never claimed not to be.

Should Hindus take a more active Kshatriya role the same false Kshatriyas may conger the image of Mahatma Gandhi against them and speak of communal harmony (which their policies never achieved), if it can keep these groups in power. It is not service to the nation that motivates these people, or defense of the country, but their personal agendas and the politics of vote banks.

No doubt the possibility of assertive Hinduism scares the leftists in India and they will try to discredit it with the image of Hindu militancy, if not fascism. Hindus must be willing to face such criticism and to gain strength from it rather than feel apologetic, which will only weaken their resolve. As the Mahabharata states, the heart of a Kshatriya should be strong and unshakable like the thunderbolt, not weak and hypersensitive. Can anyone honestly say, even those who are not Hindus, that Hindus are suffering from an excessive Kshatriya spirit?
