Breaking India — Rajiv Malhotra

About this Course

This course is based upon the international best-seller book, ‘Breaking India’ by Shri Rajiv Malhotra. This course discusses the ‘Breaking India Forces’ that are currently working to undermine the social, political, cultural and civilizational integrity of India. The ultimate goal of these ‘Breaking India Forces’ is to break India into many pieces. These forces are not just political. For more than a century they have been spinning academic theories which have given ideological foundation to their Breaking India endeavors. These theories are popularized through the sympathetic network which includes academia, media, NGOs and other lobbying groups with vested interests.

This course discusses how the Breaking India forces have concocted racist theories to divide India on the lines of race, caste, gender and class. Exploiting the loopholes in Indian democracy these forces are deconstructing India at its very foundations. Understanding the modus operandi and dynamics of these forces is a necessary step towards stopping these Breaking India Forces. The present course aims to reveal the who’s who nexus of the breaking India forces in India. It will inform you about the leaders, activists, scholars, journalists etc. who are working as Breaking India forces.

What You’ll Learn

  • You will learn how the myth of the Aryan Race and the Aryan Invasion Theory were invented; how the German quest for nationalism and European cultural politics resulted in racist theories about India, which were accepted uncritically by Indian scholars.

  • You will learn how the Dravidian race was invented; Dravidian identity was constructed; and how classical Tamil traditions and literature were de-Indianized for the benefit of Christianity.

  • You will learn how the anti-North Indian Dravidian movement was gradually turned into an anti-Hindu movement of Dravidian Christianity; how the myth of St. Thomas and the ‘Fifth Veda’ were invented by Christians to lay claim on Tamil culture and history with the ultimate goal of Christianizing south India.

  • You will learn how the Breaking India Forces control the social discourse in India through western institutions; and how India is being deconstructed through secular and Biblical lens using atrocity literature and Academic Hinduphobia.

  • You will learn how India’s leftwing ecosystem was empowered by the Five Waves of Indology emanating from the West. These five waves being Marxist, post-colonial, subaltern, post-modernist and neo-orientalist. You will also learn why it is necessary for Indians to study their opponents.

  • You will learn how Christianity originated and expanded across the world at the expense of pagan cultures. You will learn how evangelists view and depict India; and how Christianity, the biggest multi-national corporation in the world intends to convert India to Christianity through many of its networks and institutions.

The Centre for Indic Studies (CIS) has been established to restorethe dharmic narrative of Indian civilization. For centuries, India’s story has been told by others, often outsiders. This has resulted in a distorted narrative of Indian civilization, which is hostile to the very essence of Indian culture and ethos. While other cultures have regained their narrative upon attaining freedom from their colonial masters,sadly this has not happened with India. India is the only great civilization which does not have a narrative of its own. India’s story is still being told in a colonialist narrative which aims to break India culturally, socially and politically. Though the colonial age is over, but the colonialist narrative of India is still flourishing under different guises and names such as ‘left-liberal’, ‘liberal’, ‘post-colonial’, ‘post-modernist’, and ‘subaltern’ etc. The same colonialist narrative is being told under different and fashionably new labels. It is diametrically opposed to the worldview espoused by the dharmic tradition of India. The Centre for Indic Studies (CIS) aims to break the anti-Indian narrative and restore the dharmic narrative of India with the help of scholars and sages working on the important aspects of Indian civilization.
To restore the dharmic narrative of India, the CIS is engaged in creating online courses with the help of the greatest scholars working of Indian culture and civilization. It is an attempt to tell our own story from an insider’s perspective. CIS is a learning platform, hosting online courses about Indian Knowledge Tradition. The online courses offer a wide range of subjects like Itihasa, Purana, Vedas, Ayurveda, Natyashastra, Shilpashastra, Indian Models of Economy and Business and many more.
Yes, there is a nominal fee for CIS Online Courses for the maintenance and upkeep of our portal.
CIS Online Courses, at the moment, are in English and Hindi. All the courses provide transcripts in the language of the course to assist the learner. In future the CIS is also planning to host courses in other regional languages of India.
If you want to know about Indian history, culture and civilization; if you want to know about India’s people, society, cuisine; of you want to know about Indian art, music, architecture; and you do not want to see India from the biased lens of post-modernism, post-colonialism, feminism, Marxism, Freudism, liberalism and subaltern lens, then these courses are perfect for you.
The great historian Will Durant has answered this question in the following brilliant lines: “Nothing should more deeply shame the modern student than the recency and inadequacy of his acquaintance with India.”
