Thank you for your website. For a long time i’ve been interested in the power of symbols, the auspicious swastika among them, and i totally agree that, even though nazism had obviously more serious consequences, the defilement of the swastika and the refusal to address it is a long-term victory of nazism that must not endure. All the best to you and your work. Whenever enlightenment is promoted, violence is defeated, step by step. All Shall Be Well.
8 yrs old Traumatized for drawing Hindu Swastik by a Teacher in America
A formal complaint is pending since Dec. 9, 2012 against the Principle, Counselor and the teacher Aid with the appropriate authorities. It is our sincere appeal to the community that they should send their support for the 8 yrs old via e-mail under the heading “Dec 4 Swastik Incident” to Middlesex County Executive School Superintendent Samuel Stewart’s Secretary Debra Hudson 732 249 2900 press 1 + Ext 3425 E-mail at (email@example.com).
Since Middlesex County is home to a large Hindu population; community must demand that all Educators in Middlesex County Schools must be educated about Hindu Religious Symbols keeping in mind that Hinduism is practiced by almost 1 Billion people around the world.
The word “swastika” comes from the Sanskrit svastika – “su” meaning “good,” “asti” meaning “to be,” and “ka” as a suffix. The swastika literally means “to be good”.
WE SHOULD NOT LET THE NAZI MISREPRESENTATION OF THE SYMBOL DEFAME INDIAN RELIGIOUS AND CULTURAL SYMBOLS. THE NAZI STOLE IT AND IT IS NOT THEIRS AND WILL NEVER BE THEIR RELIGIOUS AND CULTURAL SYMBOL.
