Some days back, I came across several pictures floating around facebook ( like the one below ). Some hindus are claiming that Yazidis who are currently facing genocide by the ISIS jihadis, are hindu descendents. No amount of logic seems to enter these stubborn people's mind who want to claim that any and every pagan/animist faith around the world, that are not abrahamic, are vedic or hindu.

Incidently, Yazidis have certain similarities with hinduism, but the fact is that - they have similarity with almost all major faiths ( including many secret rituals ). But only some hindus are trying to claim them as their property. Logic fails them that Yazidis are the original inhabitants of Sumerian/Mesopotapian civilization, which is as ancient as ours if not older. So, to claim that they are from hinduism is pure nonsense. Worse thing is, these are being propagated by the likes of Subramanium Swami, who in the past also propagated weird things like Krishna is Christ, Vatican is Vatika influenced by P.N.Oak ( a mythhistorian ). When learned people like him believes in such nonsense, can we blame the common citizens?

Yazidis, no doubt need help as their situation is really dangerous - but these people trying to take advantage of the situation by trying to claim them as followers of their own faith i.e hinduism, is pathetic to say the least. I'm a born hindu, but I feel ashamed when people indulge in such stupidity. I find them no different than jihadis who dreams 24x7 to establish shariah all over the world/Caliphate; these people dream of their biraat-hinduism everywhere. Whereas, there was nothing called hinduism in the past ( it was known as sanatan-dharma ). Even the term 'hindu' was given by muslim invaders. These days many people immigrate to US/UK etc, they've built temples there. If thousand years later someone discovers a temple there, will it mean US/UK had a vedic past? These insane morons beliefs such stupidity. Radicals of all religions are idiots!

UPDATE: Well, well...I'm getting lot of hate comments ( some still under moderation ), asking me to verify facts and all. I've pasted quite a bit of links below as well, but I guess, hindu-Jingoism has blinded them, lol.

  1. Yezidis themselves say that they ORIGINATED in India & are descendants of HINDUS.


  2. At least Hindus are trying to adopt Yazidis as their own when EVERYONE else in the world call the Yezidis as Infidels or Kafirs & also as Devil worshipers.

    NO Yezidi in his/her sane mind will call the Hindus calling the Yezidis as long lost cousins, as insane. They will happily love to be treated as long lost cousins after being exterminated as Infidels & Kafirs for centuries in countless genocides.

    I am not saying what you say is incorrect, but how can you something is pure nonsense..why cant you open your mind a little? They can be easily influenced by Hindus due to so much cross cultural exchanges just like we have been influenced by 2500 years of trade and invasions..Simple reasoning is a Peacock is endemic only to South Asia and no way to Iraq and Levante..Food for thought I guess

  5. Nandini - It might be interesting to do dna profiling. For all we know, a serious research could uncover historical data. I believe the yazidi have peacock motifs. That could be a reference of some from, since , peacocks are very indian in perspective.

    Noise is difficult to decipher. But, scholars extract signal from noise. Cynics just switch of the volume.

    Well, you cant simply dismiss the claims as nonsense. There are just too many similarities to ignore. Just look at this picture "http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-2722800/Haunting-photos-offer-glimpse-Iraqs-tragic-Yazidi-people-months-ISIS-onslaught.html"

    Sari clad woman lighting a lamp which has a peacock on top! Nothing Arabian or present day Iraqi in it. The similarity is striking. Now, they may or may not be 'Hindu', but to dismiss these claims as nonsense is equally stupid as claiming it blindly.

    Writer needs to have more openess rather than dismissing similarities . Its more about possibility of some link between people of ancient India and them rather than current Hindus.

    As you only said that there were nothing called Hinduism, it means all the then existing faiths and traditions had connections. Monolithic Christianity and Monolithic Islam have dominated and suppressed the naturally emergent traditions of people of respective areas and environments. Hence, we can say they are our brothers... Just like other so called Pagans are.
