THE CAMPAIGN TO STOP FUNDING HATE
An error does not become truth by reason of multiplied propagation, nor does truth become error because nobody sees it........... Constant development is the law of life, and a man who always tries to maintain his dogmas in order to appear consistent drives himself into a false position........... First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win. - Mahatma Gandhi

The Cover-up Begins: National HSC Goes One Step Further to Dupe its Membership

Why is the National HSC Scrambling to Change its Webpages Now?

June 3, 2007: Last week (05/26/07), we had promised one question every week for the National HSC to respond to. In our first question, we had asked: Why did the National HSC build the Sangh Parivar's Global Internet infrastructure and why does it continue to maintain it? As evidence, we had presented material from our report in the form of an IP Map. Last week's question and the IP Map are available at:

http://hsctruthout.stopfundinghate.org/pr.html
http://hsctruthout.stopfundinghate.org/appA.html

We had noted that apart from sharing contiguous IP addresses, several important Sangh websites, including those of the RSS, HSS, VHP, VHP-America and ABVP list

"Hindunet Inc" as the "Admin Organization" and/or Ajay Shah (the first president of the HSC) as the "Admin Name". And the copyright notice on Hindunet says: Please note that entire collection of GHEN websites is copyrighted 1989-1999, Global Hindu Electronic Networks, Hindu Students Council.

Our question to the National HSC for Week #2: Why has the National HSC NOW changed the Admin information for hscnet.org and also changed the contact page on Hindunet (hindunet.com/contact.htm)? Does it believe that by changing the admin/contact information NOW, the chapter level membership will fail to see the connections between the National HSC and the RSS? Why is it continuing on this path of further deceit and deception?

In the seven weeks since the publication of "Lying Religiously", the National HSC has undertaken the following changes.

  1. Until recently the domain registration page for the National HSC's website (hscnet.org), along with several other Sangh websites hosted on the Global Hindu Electronic Networks (GHEN/Hindunet), listed "Hindunet Inc" as the "Admin Organization" and/or "Ajay Shah" as the "Admin Name.” However, since the release of our report, the "Admin Name" for the National HSC's website has been changed to the rather cryptic "hv", and the “Admin Organization" has been left blank. Compare the archived registration page for HSCNET: <WHOIS_hscnet_old.pdf>, with the current (changed) registration page for HSCNET: <WHOIS_hscnet_new.pdf>.

    Several other Sangh websites hosted on Hindunet/GHEN -- RSS, HSS, VHP, VHP-America, ABVP etc -- still retain Hindunet as the "Admin organization" and/or Ajay Shah as the "Admin name".

    In other words, the National HSC is now making a belated attempt to differentiate HSC from Hindunet/GHEN, which it has all along claimed as a HSC project. Suddenly, Hindunet/GHEN has ceased to be a HSC project!

  2. The cover-up of course would be incomplete if the National HSC left any traces of HSC on the Hindunet/GHEN webpages. Hence they have gone ahead and also cleaned up the Hindunet/GHEN pages. Below is a comparison between the old Hindunet/GHEN contact page (which we refer to in our report) and the new Hindunet/GHEN contact page:
Hindunet/GHEN contact page - OLD hindunet_old.pdf, Internet archive Hindunet/GHEN contact page - NEW (hindunet_new.pdf)

In short, all references to the HSC have been removed from the new Hindunet/GHEN contact page. Notably, the copyright paragraph at the bottom of the contact page has also been cleansed of any reference to the HSC, thereby suggesting that GHEN is indeed unconnected to the HSC.

Why did the National HSC change its domain registration details and the contact page on Hindunet/GHEN (hindunet.com/contact.htm)?

The above changes are meant to place all responsibility for the Sangh's electronic infrastructure on Ajay Shah (the first President of the HSC)/Hindunet/GHEN and create a chimera that the HSC is not part of the Sangh Parivar. We are not surprised. The HSC, as our report has shown, has a long tradition of such cleanups and attempts to wipe out the links while still staying firmly connected to the Sangh at the hip. This latest move on the part of the National HSC is nothing more than yet another attempt to dupe its membership. However, the project is bound to fail as the HSC has left a long and unending set of footprints that keep leading it back to the Sangh Parivar.

The National HSC's latest cover-up attempt vindicates our claim that its ability to advance the Sangh Parivar agenda is rooted in deception.
