ಶ್ರೀ ವಾಸುದೇವರಾವ್ ಅವರು ವೇದಸುಧೆಯ ಅಭಿಮಾನಿ, ಆರ್ಯಸಮಾಜಿ ಇರಬಹುದು. ಆದರೆ ಇವರು ಆರ್ಯ ಸಮಾಜಿಯ? ಬ್ರಹ್ಮಸಮಾಜಿಯಾ? ಅಥವಾ ಬಲಪಂತೀಯರೇ? ಎಡಪಂತೀಯರೇ? ಯಾವುದರ ಅಗತ್ಯವೂ ವೇದಸುಧೆಗೆ ಇಲ್ಲ. ಸತ್ಯ ಎಂದು ತಿಳಿದದ್ದನ್ನು ಹಂಚಿಕೊಳ್ಳಬೇಕು. ಯಾವ ಪೂರ್ವಾಗ್ರಹವೂ ವೇದಸುಧೆಗೆ ಇಲ್ಲ. ಒಂದೇ ಆಗ್ರಹ" ವೇದವನ್ನು ಅರ್ಥಮಾಡಿಕೊಳ್ಳಬೇಕು. ಕುರುಡುನಂಬಿಕೆ ದೂರವಾಗಬೇಕು. ಇದು ವೇದಸುಧೆಯ ಕಟು ನಿಲುವು. ವೇದಸುಧೆಯಲ್ಲಿ ಪ್ರಕಟವಾದ "ವೇದಗಳು ಎಲ್ಲಾ ಕಾಲಕ್ಕೂ ಪ್ರಸ್ತುತ" ಲೇಖನಕ್ಕೆ ಶ್ರೀಯುತರು ಬರೆದಿರುವ ಕಾಮೆಂಟ್ ಪ್ರತ್ಯೇಕ ಲೇಖನಕ್ಕೆ ಅರ್ಹವಾಗಿ ಕಂಡಿದ್ದರಿಂದ ಇಲ್ಲಿ ಪ್ರಕಟಿಸಲಾಗಿದೆ. ಶ್ರೀಯುತರು ತಿಳಿಸಿರುವ ಘಟನೆಯ ಸಂದರ್ಭದಲ್ಲಿ ಮತ್ಯಾರಾದರೂ ವೇದಸುಧೆಯ ಓದುಗರು ಉಪಸ್ಥಿತರಿದ್ದರೆ ಅಲ್ಲಿನ ಘಟನೆಯ ಬಗ್ಗೆ ವೇದಸುಧೆಯೊಡನೆ ನಿಮ್ಮ ಅಭಿಪ್ರಾಯವನ್ನೂ ಹಂಚಿಕೊಳ್ಳಬಹುದು.
Some years ago there was a discussion on Hinduism and its relevancy at palace grounds. Dr zakir Naik well known Islamic evengalist was the main speaker. Hundreds of Muslims were there to cheer him. From Hindu side, Ravishankar guruji of Art of Living fame spoke on Hinduism. Ravishankar's bland approach was in total contrast to the aggressive approach of Naik. Needless to say that Ravishankar was a total failure. The problem with Ravishankar was he did not consult of Vedas for point to point reply but relied on some slokas which were neither here nor there.In fact if he had consulted even once the 14th chapter of Satyarth Prakash written by Swami Dayanand and readied himself to
reply he would have won the day. The problem with our Hindu leaders is that they rarely study the religious text of other communities and repeat blindly some of their pet points which needless to say are often anti-vedic and bound to fail. I therefore urge these hindu leaders to study the books of other religions and learn to reply the way Swami Dayanand did in his famous book Satyarth Prakash. The minimum these so called leaders is to read the above book and prepare themselves to confront other religionists, Until this is done take it from me they would never taste success.One point that I would like to tell is these evengelists always avoid scholars from Aryasamaj. Why? Dr Naik was invited to participate in " Shastrath" number of times by Arysamaj bodies but cleverly he avoids but participates eagerly in debates organised by Non-Aryasamaj forums. In all these forums he would win the day because the Hindu bodies relie on trash called Puranas etc.
