Raja Yoga controversy

Dear Hinduism Project editors,

There is a controversy on the Hinduism regarding Raja Yoga. Please read the debate on the Hinduism discussion page. Your comments are requested on the Hinduism discussion page to help resolve the controversy. Thank you. HeBhagawan 15:16, 8 October 2006 (UTC)

Do you know why user Swadhyayee is vandalising Hinduism article? I mean (just in case) do you know him personally? I am extremely annoyed about his allegations of sockpuppetting etc. on me just because a user RamRamji joined newly and made an edit and then never came back. I am extremely annoyed. He is another Sarvagnya. Can you help me by providing which Admins I should write to, about this allegation of sock puppetting ? --Apandey 15:57, 8 October 2006 (UTC)

Have I been uncivil at any single place in the article or on the talk page. If you believe any one instance is incivil, I will acknowledge it because I believe you are having a NPOV here and would remain fair. Whether these should be in the article or not is a different question but whatever is there, it has to be correct. Everyone except him is saying the same thing. Even other individual articles are also claiming the same. Anyway alleging me for sockpupettng is something I will not tolerate. If you can not(do not wish to) provide the names of good/ relevant admins, it is fine. I will try to search myself. Thanks. --Apandey 16:07, 8 October 2006 (UTC)

Thanks Bakasuprman,

I am insisting as I feel I am right. To me Raj Yoga is physical and mental process to meditate whereas Jnan, Bhakti and Karma as it seems to me are sciences. The end result of Raj Yog is attaining Jnan. My fight is supplementary to the goals of HeBhagawan and A.Pandey. I simply could not bear the bullying language of A.Pandey. Some composure and reading would have made them accept my view point or alternatively their logical arguments (except it is in Patanjali Yogsutra) would have benefited me with some additional knowledge. How am I to give citations from Geeta? Do I give them all Geeta available on internet? Should a person writing or editing article on Geeta, not have fundamental knowledge of doctrines of Geeta? A.Pandey is trying to bullying as he feels himself senior to me. I have to bear with this teething problems.Swadhyayee 16:51, 8 October 2006 (UTC)

Small Help

Can you tell me how to include talk/contrib in signatures. Like for you it comes as Bakaman bakatalk. I wanted my signature to appear like Apandey(talk|contribs) or something similar. Can you help please ? Thanks. --Apandey 19:09, 8 October 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for responding but it will not help. What I am trying to say is that my current signature is Apandey (in the text box of preferences), which is expanded to become Apandey when I sign. So what should I put in the text box of preferences to get the desired effect. If I put what I see in the source of my talk page (as per your edits), I will not get the desired output. Can you please send me the exact text of your signature edit box in preferences. I hope I will be able to deduce it from there. Many thanks. --Apandey 21:50, 8 October 2006 (UTC)

Immigration

What is wrong with you? Why are you being so difficult about this? You went on a rampage adding the Indian American cat randomly to anyone who ever spent any time here. Unless you immigrate here, rather than living here on a visa clearly deemed temporary, you do not qualify to be an Indian-American unless you self-identify as one. That is what is stated on the Indian American page. Note that immigration from this point of view does not mean simply living here, but doing the paperwork to indicate a permanent move. That is why visas are relevant, in the absence of self-identification. Is that clear? I cannot understand why you persist in labeling this WP:OR. It would help the rest of us if you didnt try and keep on misapplying WP policy once it has been pointed out to you how you are wrong. Hornplease 22:59, 8 October 2006 (UTC)

Do not overuse the word 'useless'. You use it far to often, and I suggest that you attempt to find a word that more accurately fits the sense in which you use it, namely "something I did not read". About 'rest of us' I mean anyone who actually has an encyclopaedia to write.
In this case in particular, I once again urge you read the immigration page. You can be a professor at Columbia while being on a short-term visa. Many, many people are. The immigration page says very, very clearly in the second sentence - and I reproduce it here to save you the obviously great trouble of actually going there - "Immigration implies long-term permanent residence by the immigrants". So unless you are a permanent resident, with a green card, or a citizen, you have not immigrated to the US. Is that clear? 'Domiciled' is not the word mentioned here, and nor is it mentioned anywhere. And I recommend that you had best care what other people on WP think of you, because this is a collaborative community, and it can be very frustrating if people lose trust in you and start viewing every edit you make as POV-pushing.Hornplease 23:12, 8 October 2006 (UTC)
Also, I mentioned an 'MBA' in the Naveen Andrews edit summary as an obvious analogy for another reason why someone would come here, for work-related reasons, temporarily, and for the same period Andrews has been here so far. If you failed to understand that point, I apologise. I should have realised that you would be reading it irritably and made it simpler. Hornplease 23:17, 8 October 2006 (UTC)
Don't think that I havent observed this very carefully. Ragib and the other people involved in Bengal Wikiproject have taken the decision to trust you, and your little DYK project must have given them the impression that you're worth the investment. I personally admire your stamina, but think that your edits have shown a willingness to re-orient citations to serve whatever direction you wish an article to take too often. That in itself would not be a problem, if you werent so incredibly combative at the same time - something which I notice you carefully avoid when talking to other admins interested in India or Bengal. Fascinating. And where have I voted delete on avery Hindu-related AfD? I voted keep on Hindu Unity, I think, the second time it came up, and on many, many others. I voted delete on all religion-and-occupation cats, not just Hindu ones, and made the same argument on them all. Once again, you have chosen to be combative when it was unnecessary. Hornplease 23:25, 8 October 2006 (UTC)


My objections arent to you removing citations that arent wp:rs. its that you, repeatedly, mischaracterise and misrepresent wp:rs sources. Over here, similarly, you are missing the point; you do this with such regularity that one is forced to assume you do it deliberately. While they are not tourists, they are not immigrants unless they are on an immigrant visa, which should be cited. Immigrants shows inclination to settle, a long-term permanent residency, as is explained on the appropriate page. This does not apply in this case. Please accept that and move on to your next little McCarthyesque war on the Marxists under every bush.Hornplease 23:42, 8 October 2006 (UTC)
Also, about the CfD, my only contribution was to point out the joint notability criterion. That was all, and to suggest that you keep it in mind. Hornplease 23:42, 8 October 2006 (UTC)

DYK

Updated DYK query On 8 October, 2006, Did you know? was updated with a fact from the article Jyoti Prasad Agarwala, which you created. If you know of another interesting fact from a recently created article, then please suggest it on the "Did you know?" talk page.

Misrepresenting sources

Please do not misrepresent sources, as you did on Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh. The source stated that "Interestingly, the RSS has been criticised by secular Indians for its Hindu supremacist philosophy and its frequent campaign against other religions, particularly Islam and Christianity." You changed it to "Indians that describe themselves as "[[Pseudo-secular|secular]]" criticize the RSS for its "Hindu supremacist philisophy" and campaigns against other religions in India." BhaiSaab talk 01:55, 9 October 2006 (UTC)

how's about you define secular? I think I'm pretty secular myself, or does being a Hindu automatically disqualify me from being secular.01:56, 9 October 2006 (UTC)
Yes let's start doing our own original research on all of the Wikipedia articles and link secular to pseudo-secular in each instance "secular" occurs. BhaiSaab talk 01:58, 9 October 2006 (UTC)

Udit Raj

Just wanted to point out that the Udit Raj is being POV'ized on a sporadic basis by single-purpose editor User:Muggle1982. I have tried to fix it but he will undoubtable revert like this again.

Bakaman, kindly stop repeatedly undoing other users' edits to the Udit Raj page. You have already reverted pages over three times, and after doing that, you have the nerve to post a warning on *my* talk page. Chill it.

History of Pakistan

Please keep that article on your watchlist. I tried making some changes and was reverted. Apparently, some editors believe Pakistan was an independent country prior to 1947 and the spread of migrants from the IVC was an example of Pakistan having control and influence over India. Users try to make it seem like the Indus Valley Civilization was a Pakistani land which was far superior to a Gangetic Civilization which represented India. Wierd that we call ourselves Indians when the Indus Valley was a superior Pakistani civilization that had control over our lands. It also used to state something along the lines of "Ancient Pakistan as an Independent Country did..." when there was no such thing as Ancient Pakistan as an independent country. I discussed this with AfghanHistorian who agreed with my views. The so-called nation of "Ancient Pakistan" should be referred to as the Punjab region or you can say that the IVC lies in what is present day Pakistan and then refrain from mentioning either India or Pakistan.

Sock Puppet ?

Hi, I hope you are aware that Swadhyayee has taken the Hinduism page to medation [1]. In one of the comments on that page [2], he has alleged all of us (all eight people who voted against him on Raja Yoga Controversy) of sock puppetry in the form of possible friendship etc. to support each other for voting and so on. I just wanted to bring that to your attention. Please express your views (if you desire so) on that page. Thanks. --Apandey 19:39, 12 October 2006 (UTC)

Sare Jahan Se Accha

That could quite be possible, but I wonder what's the history behind the different versions. There used to be a Hindi version on the page, but Sarvagnya deleted it, I'm not sure why. It was pretty much the same as the Urdu version. Could you please give me a link to the Hindi version that you mentioned? Thanks. Mar de Sin Speak up! 19:52, 12 October 2006 (UTC)

Now I see that there was a revert war and that the Devanagari lyrics are back. I do notice several differences, notably nihaan vs. jahaan and mahram vs. marham. Do you know if these are these mistakes or are they different versions? Thanks. Mar de Sin Speak up! 23:37, 12 October 2006 (UTC)
I have done as you requested. My argument nevertheless remains weak, as there is so little evidence that says directly that SJSA is considered a national song of India, or that even Hindi speakers sing it, both of course which I'm pretty sure are true. If you have evidence for either point, could you provided it on the talk page? I found a BBC link in Hindi on the topic [3], but as I can't understand Hindi fully, I cannot comprehend this article. Does it help our argument in any way? Thanks. Mar de Sin Speak up! 19:40, 13 October 2006 (UTC)

Namaste Bakaman. It was my pleasure to do so. I hope the issue is resolved soon. If you need my assistance for anything in the future, please feel free to let me know. Thanks, AnupamTalk 21:36, 18 October 2006 (UTC)

Non-English citations

Namaskar and Happy Diwali.I request ur advice about following issues-

Belgaum_border_dispute is again facing pushing of Karnataka POV with numerous sockpuppets trying to restrict my edits by 3RR rule.My question is Kannada editors are taking help of a fanatic newspaper which endorses K'taka POV.unfortunately I dont have any such English source that will help me to balance the article by Maharashtra POV.Kannada editors are not allowing Marathi citations by demanding translation as per wiki policies.So the question is-Do I have to provide word-to-word translation of any Marathi article/source or only of the quotes/info I intend to use? I dont know where to ask the question,I request u help me on this issue.

Categorisation

(12/3/1) is strong consensus to keep. The keep votes were unconditional as well. BLP would have figured at least into the scope of the category, and by the closing admin, meaning its already been taken care of. Your interpretation of how the overwhelming consensus to keep was made is irrelevant.Bakaman Bakatalk 01:26, 13 October 2006 (UTC)
Be that as it may, it's not OR to point out (a) what consensus is and (b) to note that BLP is very clear on the subject of categorisation. Your repeated attempts to violate it are not acceptable. Hornplease 21:01, 13 October 2006 (UTC)
No I think it is OR to twist consensus and BLP to your uses, and somehow try to push your interpretation of BLP as law. Note: I actually dont care what you think is acceptable, since consensus is totally against you, and Akash (the only person who may have agreed with you) changed his vote.Bakaman Bakatalk 21:22, 13 October 2006 (UTC)
Quoting directly from wp:blp under categorisation, it is required that :
  • The subject publicly self-identifies with the belief or preference in question
  • The subject's beliefs or sexual preferences are relevant to the subject's notable activities or public life
As you can see, this isnt OR, or my interpretation. It's just policy. Find a fight you can win. Hornplease 21:27, 13 October 2006 (UTC)
In India, politics and religion go hand in hand. Also, the fact that he is a Maharaja may come into play, and verification is already found on the talk page due to his relations with Vasundhara Raje and his own coronation. I guess you assumed I didnt read WP:BLP. Congrats to losing the war. Bakaman Bakatalk 21:30, 13 October 2006 (UTC)
It was a choice between assuming that you hadnt read it and that you had chosen to ignore it. I assumed good faith, as always, and attempted to help in my small way. Participating in a Hindu ceremony is not sufficient to indicate religious preference. You know as well as I do that Hindu politicians go to Sikh services, that Muslims attend church ceremonies, that atheists get married under Hindu rites. This is why the BLP category specifically states that they must self-identify. Find a statement where JS describes himself as a Hindu, and its fine. And having a BJP relative is no criterion! What, are Sikander Bakht's nephews Hindu now? Hornplease 21:35, 13 October 2006 (UTC)


Yes but scope of the cat says "born as Hindus". Since he had a Hindu coronation (Nawabs dont have Hindu ceremonies), its obvious he was born a Hindu. Unless you find proof to the contrrary (meaning he converted to Islam, Xtianity, etc), he still is by law a Hindu. Therefore, he fits the guidelines of the cat. I think you are forgetting also which family he belongs to, that makes a difference. As a politician in Madhya Pradesh, religion based politics is the rule, with people like Uma Bharti and Arjun Singh using religion to get votes. In this environment, religion is notable. Bakaman Bakatalk 21:45, 13 October 2006 (UTC)
P.S. - Bakht, Naqvi, and Hussain (Shahnawaz) were added by me to the Muslim cat, not the Hindu one.Bakaman Bakatalk 21:47, 13 October 2006 (UTC)
I was pointing out the absurdity of your statement that he had a BJP relative as proof of his Hinduism. I think that he uses his family to get votes< not his religion. (He is in the Congress, after all. Family, not religion, get it?) Be that as it may, my only point here is that wp:blp is stringent about it. The cat was written for anyone 'born Hindus', but that is insufficient per wp:blp, which was made policy after the cat was written. I have left a note for Aksi to that effect, as I do not want to change it unilaterally. WP:Bold is all very well, but I'm not that bold. Hornplease 21:52, 13 October 2006 (UTC)
To further clarify: I do not doubt that the Scindia family is traditionally Hindu. I say we have no citations about how Madhavrao Scindia brought up his family in particular. We need that in order to add this individual to the cat, even as it stands now.Hornplease 21:56, 13 October 2006 (UTC)

Jyotiraditya Madhavrao Scindia (and Hindu cat)

I am sure that JMC is a Hindu. But we cannot mark him as a Hindu politician without atleast one source confirming that he is. After all, our knowledge is OR. On that point Hornplease is correct.

"The subject's beliefs or sexual preferences are relevant to the subject's notable activities or public life" is a point with which I agree too. As far as I can see JMC's religion has nothing to do with his political life (or public life for that matter). But the scope that I defined made it open to include all Hindu politicians. I think we (as in you, hornplease, me and others) need to come to a consensus on whom to include in the cat. If we decide to include all hindus, irrespective of whether hinduism plays any role in their lives, then so be it. If that is the decision we come to, then also we need to make sure that there are sources confirming the fact. What do you think? - Aksi_great (talk) 06:07, 14 October 2006 (UTC)

Or you could explicitely ask for what you want - a revert. BhaiSaab talk 04:02, 19 October 2006 (UTC)
Not unlike the Muslim guild.Bakaman Bakatalk 04:05, 19 October 2006 (UTC)
I'm part of Wikiproject Hinduism too. BhaiSaab talk 04:22, 19 October 2006 (UTC)
Wahoo. I could also sign up for umpteen projects as well, anything to show for it? Any DYK's, FA's, or Stub to normal articles? Any actual edits that werent bad-faith reverts? By your logic I should join WikiProject Pakistan (at least I have two DYK's for that WP), or maybe even Wikiproject India, or for your purposes, Wikiproject Islam.Bakaman Bakatalk 04:25, 19 October 2006 (UTC)
Chill out. I just joined a few days ago. You're supposed to assume good faith. BhaiSaab talk 04:27, 19 October 2006 (UTC)
I'm not assuming anything, I'm merely asking what you have to show for it. I actually wikified/wrote/expanded quite a few Bengal related articles before joining WP Bengal and WP Bangladesh, and I've been on wiki for way less time than you.Bakaman Bakatalk 04:30, 19 October 2006 (UTC)
You're saying that as if contributing to Wikipedia is my job. It's not. BhaiSaab talk 04:32, 19 October 2006 (UTC)
I'm merely saying that you flaunting your membership at WP Hinduism like a badge is not fooling anyone, and challenging you to disprove me. Its not my job either.Bakaman Bakatalk 04:36, 19 October 2006 (UTC)
My actions are as representative of the Wikiproject Hinduism as they are of the Muslim Guild. I just find it strange you keep bringing the Muslim Guild up. BhaiSaab talk 04:38, 19 October 2006 (UTC)

not as active as I once was....

I don't have the energy to fight as much as I used to. I'm just sticking to organizing.--D-Boy 05:15, 19 October 2006 (UTC)
