“Dhimmitude is a state of fear and insecurity on the part of kafirs who are required to accept a condition of humiliation. It is characterised by the victim’s siding with his oppressors, by the moral justification the victim provides for his oppressors’ hateful behaviour. The dhimmi loses the possibility of revolt because revolt arises from a sense of injustice. He loathes himself in order to praise his oppressors. Dhimmis lived under some 20 disabilities. Dhimmis were prohibited to build new places of worship, to ring temple bells or take out processions, to ride horses or camels (they could ride donkeys), to marry a Muslim woman, to wear decorative clothing, to own a Muslim as a slave or to testify against a Muslim in a court of law.”-Sita Ram Goel
When Sita Ram Goel published his pioneering and very rare Indian study of dhimmitude, there was no social media. Therefore, the dhimmi ruling elite of India quickly pushed his writings on the subject down The Memoryhole, and so the Indians continue to be as illiterate as before, of this disabling and debilitating mental condition, which can even be characterised ‘mental disorder,’ that afflicts them almost all.
Only recently, two articles on the subject have been published at the popular Indian website www.indiafacts.co.in: (Click on the titles below to read the articles.)
This shows that Indians are again trying to learn the subject, which they should have been original researchers of, given that they are the most dhimmified and largest dhimmi population on the planet.
Credit for the original research on the subject goes to the great Bat Ye’Or, who did painstaking but groundbreaking work on the subject. Her meticulously researched books have now become the original reference texts on the subject. Though her study concentrates on the peoples of West Asia, Turkey, and Balkans, but results she documents, and conclusions she reaches, are evident readily in India also.
All her books are available on amazon.com, and her page on the website is available here.
Another great book on the subject is recently published by Mark Durie, aptly forwarded by Bat Ye’or herself: The Third Choice: Islam, Dhimmitude and Freedom. In fact for a beginner, before he proceeds to more detailed books of Bat Ye’or, this book is very suitable. This is also available on amazon.com, here.
