Sanatan Dharma is the world’s oldest civilization that has survived multiple threats and attempts to eradicate it. The present is a testimony to the enduring hatred displayed by the Abrahamic forces toward Hindus over centuries. It is our ignorance of the past that is contributing to the crisis we face today. Unfortunately, Hindus continue to hoodwink themselves as they fail to understand that they are in existential danger.
