Dr. Subramanian Swamy has contributed to India's growth in his various capacities as Member of Parliament, and Cabinet Minister – first as Minister for Commerce, Law and Justice (1990-1991) and later as Chairman of the Commission on International Trade and WTO's labour standards (1994-1996).
He has doctorate in economics from Harvard University . He continues to be a visiting faculty member at Harvard University. A man who has fought fearlessly for his convictions, the causes he has espoused include his heroic struggle against Emergency in India .
As never before, Hinduism is under an invisible multi-dimensional siege; and that the manifestation of this siege can be seen by those alerted to it. Dr. Subramanian Swamy suggests that the siege against Hinduism today is visible in four dimensions:
RELIGIOUS: In the denigration of Hindu icons and colossal scale of looting of Hindu Temples in most parts of India.
PYCHOLOGICAL: in the foisting of a fraudulent version of our history;
PHYSICAL: In the Islamic terrorist-driven ethnic cleansing of Hindus in Kashmir and Bangladesh, and the money-induced conversion of Hindus to Christianity;
CULTURAL: Through globalization of tastes, dress and interpersonal morality that are determined in the West.
Dr. Subramanian Swamy argues that Hindus must collectively acquire a new mind set, to meet the growing challenge from a highly multi-dimensional siege which is international in character- otherwise over the coming millennium, Hindus run the risk of perishing like the ancient Greeks, Egyptians or Babylonians.
