Recently, a swastika written on a wall was found in Beit Israel area of ​​Jerusalem. Another man drew a swastika on turnstiles and posters of the New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) at the Fort Hamilton Parkway subway station in Brooklyn. There has been a controversy regarding the news of both of the above. Israel is also claiming that there have been several cases of Nazi hate crimes in the past few months.

In such a situation, the question becomes, is the swastika really a symbol of hatred and crime or did Nazism give birth to terrible crimes under the guise of this symbol? Searching is necessary to know anything real. Historical discovery, social discovery, religious discovery or sometimes digging in many places, such things came out that the world was compelled to think. For example, once during the excavation in the famous Turkish city of Toy, such utensils were found on which there were swastika marks. Similarly, once the remains of a Neolithic settlement were found in Corinth, a city in Greece, there were also swastika marks on many things.

The symbol of the swastika which is considered here in Sanatan Dharma is a symbol of faith, strength, self-satisfaction, achievements and fame. Which we also make Rangoli of colors in our homes on festivals. Swastika is a Sanskrit word which means well being or good fortune. It has been used as a religious symbol in India for thousands of years.

Now the question is that if this is a symbol used in Indian Sanatan Dharma, then how was it found during excavations in the Turkish city of Toy and the Greek city of Corinth? After all, how did a sign travel so long that it is still known as Wan in China, Manzhi in Japan, Phil Phot in England, Heiken in Germany and Tetraculus in Greece. At the same time, in some countries this symbol is also used in reverse and it is called Swastika. Even in this country with Muslim population of Tajikistan, the swastika is considered as one of the national symbols.

Actually this is not the history of any last 100-200 years. Rather, the swastika symbol was found during the excavation of the Indus Valley. Not only this, there was a practice of worshiping the swastika in ancient Persia, which is known as Persia Persia and now Iran. -A noteworthy fact.

Apart from this, if you look at the ancient currency of some countries, then they also have the symbol of swastika, whether it is the ancient coins of Germany or the ancient currency of Greece and Egypt.

Another American writer, Stephen Hellard, wrote a book describing the swastika and its importance, which is called “The Swastika”, according to them, thousands of years ago, when Europeans came to India, they were greatly influenced by the positive effect of this mark that they would Took it along and started using more.

Note that thousands of years ago Europeans came to India. But what we are taught is that Vasco da Gama discovered India on 20 May 1498. Now it is incomprehensible whether this sign had gone in a dream thousands of years ago because India was discovered in 1498!

In fact, this book was written only so that gradually his people do not understand that the sect which he believes today has been imposed on him or not. Because the world considers the swastika, so it should be written in advance that it was brought by Europeans. Otherwise, the history and belief of the swastika is so ancient that this symbol was used by all civilizations or say that before the arrival of these so-called religions, the root of Sanatan Dharma was spread all over the world.

For a period, even in the countries of Central Asia, the symbol of the swastika was considered to be associated with good luck. It is said that in ancient Iraq, the symbol of swastika was used to win over weapons. Apart from ancient Greece, there are mentions about the use of the swastika in Western Europe from the Baltic to the Balkans. Apart from this, a National Museum is located in Ukraine, which is located in the eastern part of Europe, in this museum many types of swastika symbols can be seen, which are as old as fifteen thousand years. signs have been found.

What happened now? Actually, in 1920, Adolf Hitler made a crucifix resembling the swastika the symbol of his National Socialist Party. Hitler planted it a bit crooked. Hitler misused this symbol and committed cruelty and genocide on Jews under the guise of a swastika symbol of happiness, prosperity and good luck. For this reason, in the Western world, it came to be seen as a symbol of Nazism and anti-Semitism rather than as a symbol of Mars. In addition, the Finnish Air Force adopted the swastika as a symbol of victory. However, it has now been removed last year due to anti-Semitism. But this symbol is still used in the flag of the President of Finland.

Whereas in Sanatan Dharma the belief of Swastika is that its four lines point towards the four directions East, West, North and South. These lines symbolize the four Vedas, Rigveda, Yajurveda, Atharvaveda and Samaveda. Some also believe that these four lines also symbolize the four ashrams, brahmacharya, householder, vanaprastha and renunciation.

That is, a small religious symbol like Swastika. Swastika remained prevalent and equally revered not only in India but all over the world. Even today, its spread and influence proves that the whole world is the work place of that Supreme Father, the Supreme Soul. Along with the feeling of universal brotherhood, the swastika also indicates that the whole world was once the followers of “Sanatan Dharma.” Later on, new sects and sects kept coming, but devotion to the swastika is still prevalent today. That is why it is remembered and made by making a swastika before every auspicious work that our faith is our supreme power and instead of any hatred or violence, the swastika is a symbol of good luck, peace and harmony.
