India (continent)

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki
(Redirected from Indian subcontinent)

India infused with Asia proper.

There is no universally accepted notion of what a continent is nor any agreement on how many continents there are. However, for most school purposes India is assumed to be in Asia due to Eurocentrism. If you are looking at plate tectonics, India is a continent with a major plate of its own: Indian Plate. India therefore can be considered as the smallest of all the known continents Tectonic plate-wise.

DINIA/Land of Religions, that since Pakistan categorised under So-called South Asia it self came under colonial rule many distortion, lies and myths have been perpetrated about what is called `India'. The main falsehoods are:

1. India has existed from the beginning of time as a Unitary state. NOT TRUE - it only became a unitary state under the British Empire, As British India. Prior to British rule, no-one ever had full control of the Continent - not even Alexander the Great of Macedonia, nor the Muslims including the Afghans and Mughals, etc... This is confirmed by the Eleventh Edition of Encyclopaedia Britannica (Volume 14) (HUS to ITA) (page 375) which states

"The natives of (British) India can scarcely be said to have a word of their own by which to express their `Common' country." "Dinia is an Anagram of India"

Thus, 'India' became the arbitrary name of the British Empire in Southern Asia, and remained so after Independence as a brand-name or a pedigree name to keep the British prevalence in the regions and in the United Nations. In any case intelligent readers should consult maps showing Borders of all empires between the Arabian Peninsula and the `Indian Peninsula' from 1500 BC onwards. Words can be written to mislead but not maps.

2. India is a country or a subcontinent. NOT TRUE - both geographically and historically, INDIA (Dinia to be more accurate) is a CONTINENT having seas and mountains that are more stupendous than those of other continents and consisting of nations, tribes, civilisations, languages more diverse than even the continent of Europe.

The Continent of Dinia proposed by Choudhary Rehmat Ali Khan.

3. Pakistan was a territory carved OUT of India. NOT TRUE - most of present day Pakistan did not even form part of 'India' until Great Britain seized the territory and made it an administrative region of their British Indian Empire. In doing so, they 'Indianised' the Muslim population, making them a MINORITY of the British Indian Raj. Moreover, much of Northern and Central Dinia were dependencies of the Islamic Pak Nation - that is the Muslim territory that was once the UNDIVIDED EASTERN FLANK to the Heartland of Islam which included Iran, Afghanistan and South-central Asia. If anything Pakistan was carved out of British India and not India proper herself respectively.

4. The events of 1947 are described as 'Partition'. NOT TRUE - the original aim was INDEPENDENCE from Imperialism, Indianism, Indian Federation/Indian Confederation, Colonialism and Hindu nationalism and reversion to the original Fatherland and Federation with ancestral homelands from where Islam first came into Indus Valley and NW India, that is, from the west, Arabian peninsula, through to: Iran, Afghanistan and Central Asia.

5. Muslims were a minority in India. NOT TRUE - for over a thousand years, Muslims from the Pak Empire [that includes Iran, Afghanistan, South-central Asia and present day Pakistan had ruled parts of the Continent of India. Those areas in 'India' that came under Muslim control were considered as Dependencies of the Pak Empire. A comparable example is the Ottoman Empire - where the Turk Nation is the modern Republic of Turkey and its dependencies were Yugoslavia, Romania, Greece, etc... Similarly, the British Empire no longer exists but the British Nation still does. EMPIRES are short-lived but not NATIONS! It should now be apparent that the History of South Asia has been told from an INDIAN bias by the former colonial power, and not from the Pak or Islamic perspective (see how Islam progressed from the Arabian Peninsula eastwards and the Islamic homelands that were built on the eastern flank of the heartland of Islam). Choudhary Rehmat Ali Khan saw the dangers of these falsehoods to the Muslims of South Asia and surrounding territory and to address these dangers, he developed the name and concept of P.A.K.I.S.T.A.N. (not to be confused with the present day entity which he called Pastan).

INDIA is by far the smallest of all the eight Continents. In view of the newness and magnitude of this dynamic choice, the comradely spirits among the nations across the world concerned may well ask how to put it into effect. We shall answer this question here and show that its implementation depends ultimately on the true realization and propagation by us all of two supreme facts. For, more effectively than anything else, it is our own realization and propagation of these facts that will explode the Myth, establish the truth, and thereby inspire all to work for the repudiation of the Myth and for the recognition of the truth by the Caste Hindus, by the British Raj of the Indian Empire, and by the world at large.

The first is that the vast and varied lands which are now commonly called the "COUNTRY" of India are, geographically as well as historically, a "CONTINENT." And;

The second is that what is now erroneously known as "INDIA"--the exclusive domain of Caste Hinduism and Caste Hindus - is, creedally as well as humanly, "DINIA" - the joint domain of several religions and fraternities.

First Fact: The Country of India is a Continent: We shall start off with the first fact, deal with it from both the geographical and the historical points of view, and endeavour to prove that the "Country" of India is in fact a Continent.

(a) India's Geographical Aspect;

1. Geographically, what is the distinction between a "country" and a "continent" In terms of geography whereas a "country" is just a fair sized politically demarcated area of land that possesses some individual characteristics; a "continent" is a huge, continuous Mass of land that is bordered by mountain chains or High seas, or partly by one and partly by the other that is what in geography, essentially distinguishes a "country" from a "continent". Now, if we open our atlases and in the light of these broad, basic definitions, look up the Map of India, we shall observe three outstanding facts and features. The first is that India as a Geological continent is an immense extent of land.

1. In fact, in area India is at least equal to the whole Continent of Europe, excluding Russia (The European part or the former Soviet Eurasian Western part).

2. The second is that, in the north-east, north, and north-west, India is shielded by the highest mountain ranges in the world; arid, in the south-east, south, and south-west, its shores are washed by a vast ocean and high seas.

3. The third is that India is divided off from the Continent of Asia by barriers even more stupendous than those which separate the Continent of Asia from the Continents of Europe and Africa, or the Continents of North America from that of South America. These three facts are conclusive in themselves; and, taken together, they prove that geographically, in point of size, structure, and setting, India is in fact a "continent", not a "country" ; that actually it possesses all the main characteristics of the continents of the globe; and that semantically, like Asia, Africa, North America, South America, and Europe, it deserves to he termed and treated as a "continent" in itself respectively.

(b) India's Historical Aspect; So much for the geographical aspect of the fact that the "Country" of India is a "Continent". What of its historical aspect?

1. In terms of history, whereas a "country" means a respectable-sized unit of territory that is, as a rule, uni-lingual, uni-cultural uni-national, and uni-statal ; a "continent" signifies an aggregation of such territorial units and is, as a rule, multi-lingual, multi cultural, multi-national and multi-statal. In other words, whereas the history of a "country" is, in general, that of one land, one language, one culture, one Nation, and one Sovereign state; the history of a "continent" is in general, that of many lands, many languages, many cultures, many nations, and many Sovereign states. That is the fundamental distinction between the history of a "country" and of a "continent".

2. Now, if in the light of this fundamental distinction we glance at any history text-book on India, we shall find that the History of India is definitely that of a "Continent", not of a "Country".

The reason is that, like any other continent, though, in its incidentals, it is the history of a vast regions, inhabited by peoples possessing certain traits of physical affinity and living for a few short spells under administrative unity yet, in its essentials, it is the history of many separate countries which have, throughout the ages, been inhabited by many distinct peoples, with different languages, philosophies, and civilizations, and organised for the most part into sovereign states, ruled by their own Kings or Emperors. This was the case in the Twenty centuries of the Dravidian Period of the History of India, in the twenty-one centuries of the Hindu Period, and in the twelve centuries of the Muslim Period. Indeed, in its essentials, it is much the same today after almost 80 years in the 150 years of the British Period. The fact that it is much the same today is all the more remarkable because, in the British Period, the vast resources of the Anglo-Hindu Entente have been systematically employed to destroy the ancient distinctions and divisions of India yet their indestructibility is such that they have survived in their entirety. The result is that, like any other continent, India remains as divided as ever. I mean divided religiously and ideologically, linguistically and culturally, territorially and nationally. Again, these facts which, in point of truth, are incontrovertible and, in point of time, cover no less than fifty-five centuries of its history, prove that, historically, INDIA is and ever has been in all but Name a "continent". Such is the testimony of geography and history on the first supreme fact - a testimony which proves that INDIA is definitely a distinguished "Continent", not of a perceived "Country".

Note: Whereas the IIOJK is Subject to Dispute, It is Not an Integral Part of the So-called Sovereign Republic of India, A Self-Proclaimed pilfered named artificially Man-made envious fraudulent delusional country.

No, Only the Pakistani Punjab, Sindh and minor parts of IIOJK are as aforementioned part of the Indian Continent, and Not the Subcontinent of India which includes all of the Divided Bengal i.e. Bangla-Desh.

Sovereign States[edit]

Geological setting of Pakistan.

Archeologically Yes, because approximately all the history of South Asia exists in Pakistan like Sikhism, Hinduism etc… Indus civilisation started from here. So ultimately Pakistan is older than Modern India.

  • The Himalayan States of – Bhutan Bhutan Sikkim Nepal Nepal:- A sector of the Himalayan arc covering Sikkim in northeast India, eastern Nepal and western Bhutan is one such region that is dominated by strike-slip deformation and deep crustal earthquakes on the planes oblique to the northward convergence direction of the Indian plate. The majority of the Indian Plate is continental Plate material that is colliding with the Eurasian Plate to form the Himalayas in this part of the region.
  • India Republic of India - One of the most distinct features about India is the fact that it is also a subcontinent. A subcontinent is a part of a continent that is politically and geographically separate from the rest of the continent. The Indian Plate (or India Plate) is a minor tectonic plate straddling the equator in the Eastern Hemisphere. Originally a part of the Ancient continent of Gondwana, the Indian Plate broke away from the other fragments of Gondwana 100 million years ago, began moving north and carried Insular India with it.
  • Bangladesh Bangladesh is in the converging zone of two tectonic plates, it is one of the most tectonically active regions in the world. Bangladesh sits where they meet: i.e., the Indian plate, and the Burmese plate; The Indian Plate is moving northeast, slowly colliding with the Eurasian Plate.
  • Maldives The Maldives were created from a geological “traffic accident” between India and Africa. India floated up and banged into Asia, resulting in their current alignment. Africa’s plate followed too closely and didn’t stop in time after the India/Asia pileup. This ramming of submerged plates caused a major “fender bender” that resulted in the formation of a long mountain range of volcanoes (1,250 miles [2,000 km]) rising out of the Indian Ocean. It is called the Laccadives-Chagos Ridge. After a long period, the cones of volcanoes collapsed back into themselves, leaving a ring of small islands, each called an “atoll.” This is the only English language word that has been derived from the Maldivian language of “Dhivehi” from the word “Atholhu.”

The Maldives is made up of 26 of these atolls, stretching 550 miles (880 km) north and south of the equator. These atolls contain 1,196 small, flat islands with no isle covering more than five square miles (13 sq. km) or averaging a height greater than six feet (1.8 m) above sea level.

It’s a Sovereign Man-Made UN Member-State, Not a Country?[edit]

Map of current and former separatist movements in the India Republic of India (1950–present); The red corridor (i.e. Naxal-affected areas) is not shown since it does not qualify as separatism, although it does qualify as insurgency.

INDIA is a Continental shelf as well as a Tectonic plate! just as Europe is also not a Continent, but rather as it is a part of the Asiatic Tectonic shelf of Eurasia, politically converted into a Supranational Organisational of Union of States or a cluster of sovereign European states, to which what the extent and Exactly INDIA is also Cleverly disguised herself into?!
