Stay Away from Indoctrination and Dogma

"As a result, we are no longer to be children, tossed here and there by waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, by craftiness in deceitful scheming;" (Ephesians 4:14 NASB).

Gandhi and the Hindu/Muslim/Vatican/UK Opium Connection

U.S. Embassy in Baghdad, IRAQ---the largest U.S. Embassy in the world
When the prophet Isaiah referred to the final Antichrist as the Assyrian, he was indicating from where the Antichrist will come. Ancient Assyria included territories represented by present day Turkey, Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, Iran, Saudi Arabia and Iraq.

However, Revelation 13 informs us that the final Antichrist will be supported by a world religious leader (false prophet). And this is why I believe it is important to keep an eye on the Papacy! 

My job as an evangelist and a watchman (Ezekiel 33; 2 Corinthians 10:3-5; 2 Corinthians 11:12-15; Ephesians 6:10-18; 2 Timothy 2:15; 2 Timothy 4:1-5; Jude 1) is to help lead people away from religious deception and Babylon the Great (Revelation 17, 18:4-7) back to the understanding of the simplicity of Christ Jesus (2 Corinthians 11:3-4).

Two Kerala-born Indian Catholics; Father Kuriakose Elias Chavara, and Sister Euphrasia were canonized by Pope Francis at St Peter’s Square in the Vatican on Sunday, November 23, 2014. The day before, the Catholic Church in Kerala, India, initiated the canonization process of a foreign missionary brother Forthunathus Thanhauser, who lived and died in the high ranges of Idukki, India. Thanhauser joined the league of 24 Indian Catholics in the category of "servant of god," the first step towards "sainthood."

Holy See–India relations refers to bilateral relations between the Holy See, which is sovereign over the Vatican City in Rome, and India. Formal bilateral relations between the two exist since June 12, 1948.

The Holy See has at present diplomatic relations with 176 States, the European Union Community, Sovereign Order of Malta (Sovereign Military Order of St. John of Jerusalem, Palestine, Rhodes and Malta aka JESUITS), and the  Palestine Liberation Organization. The Holy See has had a bilateral agreement with the PLO since February, 15, 2000. Ironically the Holy See has relations of a special nature with the Russian Federation. The Holy See has an Apostolic Nunciature in Moscow. Russia has a permanent representative to the Holy See based in Rome.
President of Russia Dmitry Medvedev ordered the establishment of full diplomatic relations between Russia and the Holy See following the meeting with Pope Benedict XVI in December 2009.

Rajiv Gandhi was the seventh Prime Minister of India, serving from 1984 to 1989. He took office after the 1984 assassination of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, his mother, to become the youngest Indian premier.

Rajiv Gandhi (the son of assassinated Indira Gandhi) was assassinated in 1991
THE PAPACY AND INDIA. The first Pope to visit India was Pope Paul VI, who visited Mumbai in 1964 to attend the International Eucharistic Congress. Pope John Paul II also visited several places in India on February 1986. Several Indian dignitaries have, from time to time, called on the Pope in the Vatican—such as Prime Minister Indira Gandhi in 1981.

In November 1991, the Schweizer Illustrierte (Swiss Illustrated page) magazine published an article on black money held in secret accounts by First Lady of the Philippines Imelda Marcos and 14 other rulers of Third World countries. As one of two Roman Catholic-majority countries in Asia (the other being Timor-Leste), the Philippines enjoys significant relations with the Holy See. When President Marcos' government was accused of being involved in the assassination of Benigno Aquino, Jr., the people in Manila led the so-called People Power Revolution and forced Marcos out of office in 1986. Corazon Aquino, as the then new elected President, requested that American forces at Clark Air Base have the Marcos family exiled to the United States, and they were sent to Hawaii.

Citing McKinsey as a source, the article stated that Rajiv Gandhi held 2.5 billion Swiss francs in secret Indian accounts in Switzerland. [1][2] Switzerland has served as the protecting power for many countries—and the Swiss Guard is a small force maintained by the Holy See and is responsible for the safety of the Pope, including the security of the Apostolic Palace. The Swiss Guard controls access to the entrances to the city-state together with the Corps of Gendarmerie of Vatican City, a civilian force maintained by Vatican City. The Swiss were famous mercenaries for hundreds of years. Currently, the name Swiss Guard generally refers to the Pontifical Swiss Guard of the Holy See stationed at the Vatican in Rome.

The Holy See has a nunciature in New Delhi while India has accredited its embassy in Bern, Switzerland to the Holy See as well.

After World War II, Switzerland served an additional 67 mandates for various countries, including those between Cuba and other nations in the Western Hemisphere after the 1959 Cuban Revolution, between Middle Eastern nations following the outbreak of the Yom Kippur War in 1973, and between the India and Pakistan War. Since the partition of British India in 1947 and creation of modern republics of India and Pakistan, the two South Asian countries have been involved in four wars, including one undeclared war, as well as many border skirmishes and military stand-offs. The dispute over Kashmir has been the cause, whether direct or indirect, of all major conflicts between the two countries with the exception of the Indo-Pakistani War of 1971, where conflict originated due to turmoil in erstwhile East Pakistan (now Bangladesh).


Rajiv Gandhi's last public meeting was at Sriperumbudur, India, on May 21, 1991, in a village approximately 40 km (30 miles) from Chennai, Tamil Nadu, where he was assassinated while campaigning for the Sriperumbudur Lok Sabha Congress candidate. The assassination of former Indian Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi was a big mistake by the LTTE, former Tamil Tiger commander Karuna Amman has said.

Vinyagamoorthy Muralitharan alias Karuna Amman, who is also the deputy minister of resettlement in the Sri Lankan government, told a top panel looking into events during the ethnic war, that he received arms training in India in early 1980s when he was with the LTTE.

At the height of its power, the LTTE (The Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam or Tamil Tigers) possessed a well-developed militia and carried out many high-profile attacks, including the assassinations of several high-ranking Sri Lankan and Indian politicians. The LTTE was the only militant group to assassinate two world leaders: former Indian Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi in 1991 and Sri Lankan President Ranasinghe Premadasa in 1993. The LTTE used suicide belts and women in suicide attacks. It was the first militant group to acquire air power, and used light aircraft in some of its attacks.

Coal, opium and narcotics are not taxed by the Goods and Services Tax (GST) in India. The Goods and Services Tax and duties of customs (including export duties) has no excise tax on alcohol and pharmaceuticals containing Indian opium, Indian hemp, narcotics or street narcotics such as heroin.

We've been in Afghanistan for years having our troops protect the poppy fields, so the farmers and international pharmaceutical companies can keep control of the opium production. Yet! We keep hearing about the threat of ISIS against U.S. military and their own Islamic counterparts. Is the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria the real threat, or is the threat to the "souls" of mankind the Antichrist governments of the world, their religious leaders and corporations?

Big American banks launder money for drug cartels. The U.S. military has openly said that it is protecting Afghani poppy fields.

Morphine (sold under nearly a hundred trade names) is an opioid analgesic drug, and the main psychoactive chemical in opium. Like other opioids, such as oxycodone, hydromorphone, and diacetylmorphine (heroin), morphine acts directly on the central nervous system (CNS) to relieve pain. Morphine has a high potential for addiction.

In controlled studies comparing the physiological and subjective effects of heroin and morphine in individuals formerly addicted to opiates, subjects showed no preference for one drug over the other.

Morphine was discovered as the first active alkaloid extracted from the opium poppy plant in December 1804 in Paderborn, Germany, by Friedrich Sertürner.[2b][2c] The drug was first marketed to the general public by Sertürner and Company in 1817 as an analgesic, and also as a treatment for opium and alcohol addiction.

In the late eighteenth century, the East India Company (now owned by Unilever and the United Arab Emirates, Consumer Goods, as of 2005) gained a direct interest in the opium trade through India and China.

Sanjiv Mehta, a Mumbai-born entrepreneur and Chairman at Unilever - North Africa and Middle East (United Arab Emirates, Consumer Goods) completed the process of buying the East India Company (EIC) in 2005 from the "30 or 40" people who owned it.

United Arab Emirates’ (UAE) economy is primarily dependent on oil and opium export. However, in recent years the country has also diversified its economy into various other sectors including tourism, construction and consumer goods. Unilever (Euronext: UNA, LSE: ULVR) is an Anglo–Dutch multinational consumer goods company. Its products include foods, beverages, cleaning agents and personal care products. It is the world's third-largest consumer goods company measured by 2011 revenues (after Procter & Gamble and Nestlé).

Bilateral relations between the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan and the Republic of India have traditionally been strong and friendly. India aided the overthrow of the Taliban and became the largest regional provider of reconstruction aid to Afghanistan.

The effort to win over Afghans on former Taliban turf in Marja has put American and NATO commanders in the unusual position of arguing against opium eradication, pitting them against some Afghan officials who are pushing to destroy the harvest---according to the New York Times... 

Jawaharlal Nehru and Mahatma Gandhi
Mahatma Ghandi (1869–1948), Indian nationalist and spiritual leader; full name Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi. Prominent in the opposition to British rule in India, he pursued a policy of nonviolent civil disobedience.[3]

The Khilafat movement (1919–1924) was a pan-Islamic, political protest campaign launched by Muslims in British India to influence the British government and to protect the Ottoman Empire during the aftermath of World War I. It won the support of Mahatma Gandhi and the predominantly Hindu Congress movement because of its anti-British overtones. In India, although mainly a Muslim religious movement, the movement became a part of the wider Indian independence movement.[4]

Ghandi was born and raised in a Hindu merchant caste family in coastal Gujarat, western India, and trained in law at the Inner Temple, London. The Honourable Society of the Inner Temple, commonly known as Inner Temple, is one of the four Inns of Court (professional associations for barristers and judges) in London. The Inn or Inner Temple is a professional body for many barristers which provides legal training, selection and regulation. It is ruled by a governing council called "Parliament," made up of the Masters of the Bench (or "Benchers"). The Temple takes its name from the KNIGHTS TEMPLAR, who originally leased the land to the inhabitants of the Temple (or Templars) until their abolition in 1312.

Pope Benedict XV
Pope Benedict XV (21 November 1854 – 22 January 1922), born Giacomo Paolo Giovanni Battista della Chiesa, was Pope from 3 September 1914, the start of WWI, to his death in 1922. His pontificate was largely overshadowed by World War I, because the Vatican was overthrown in 1870, and the Pope's power and Papal States were lost to the newly formed Italian Republic.[5]

Cardinal Henry Edward Manning, in 1874, spoke of the only way to restore the Pope's Temporal Power; "There is only one solution of the difficulty---a solution, I fear, impending---and that is the terrible scourge of Continental war, a war which will exceed the horrors of any of the wars of the First Empire. And it is my firm conviction that in spite of all obstacles the Vicar of Jesus Christ will be put again in his own rightful place. But that day will not be until his adversaries shall have crushed each other with mutual destruction."
--- Tablet, January 24th, 1874.

The diplomatic relations between the Holy See and India actually was established as the Apostolic Delegation to the East Indies in 1881, and included Ceylon (present day Sri Lanka), and was extended to Malaca in 1889, and then to Burma in 1920, and eventually included Gôa, India, in 1923.

Mahatma Gandhi when he was a lawyer
Sri Lanka has maritime borders with India to the northwest and the Maldives to the southwest. Gôa (Portuguese) is currently the Republic of India's smallest state by area. Mahatma Gandhi first employed nonviolent civil disobedience as an expatriate lawyer in South Africa, in the resident Indian community's struggle for civil rights. After his return to India in 1915, he set about organizing peasants, farmers, and urban labourers to protest against excessive land-tax and discrimination.

The position of Caliph after the Armistice of Mudros of October 1918 with the military occupation of Istanbul, Turkey, fell into a disambiguation along with the Ottoman Empire's existence. The Ottoman Empirehaving sided with Italy and the Vatican (that later flip-flopped sides) and the other Central Powers during World War Isuffered a major military defeat. The Treaty of Versailles (1919) reduced its territorial extent and diminished its political influence but the victorious European powers promised to protect the Ottoman emperor's status as the Caliph.

The United Kingdom did not re-establish relations with the Vatican until December 1914 (5 months after WWI began), as the British government was apprehensive about possible growing German and Austrian influence over Vatican policies.

The first envoy selected for that purpose was Henry Howard, a British Catholic himself. However, in order to make the impression this diplomatic mission was temporary in nature, it was titled "Special Mission to the Vatican."

During WWI, the Vatican’s Cardinal Secretary of State Pietro Gasparri, wrote on 4 March 1916 that the Holy See did not favor the Allied side. This contributed to the exclusion of the Vatican from the Paris Peace conference of 1919. Regarding the Versailles Peace Conference, the Vatican believed that the economic conditions imposed on Germany were too harsh and threatened the European economic stability as a whole. The movement was a topic in Conference of London (February 1920); however, Arabs saw it as threat of continuation of Turkish dominance of Arab lands.[5]

During the two years that followed the end of the war in 1918 – and in accordance with the Sykes-Picot Agreement that was signed between Britain and France during the war – the British held control of most Ottoman Mesopotamia (modern Iraq) and the southern part of the Ottoman Syria (Palestine and Transjordan), while the French controlled the rest of Ottoman Syria (modern Syria, Lebanon, Alexandretta) and other portions of southeastern Turkey. The British and French control of these territories was developed by the League of Nations' mandate system.

Under the Treaty of Sèvres (1920), territories such as Palestine, Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, Egypt were severed from the Ottoman empire.

With the Anglo Irish Treaty of 1921 all of Ireland became an independent dominion, however Northern Ireland exercised its right under the Anglo-Irish Treaty to withdraw from the remainder of Ireland and maintain the union with Great Britain, thus creating the current state of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH WANTED TO REGAIN ISTANBUL (FORMERLY CONSTANTINOPLE), PALESTINE, JORDAN AND SYRIA THAT WAS CONTROLLED BY THE OTTOMAN EMPIRE. However these land were given to the British and French under the British Mandate for Palestine and the French Mandate, Pope Benedict XV rejected the League of Nations as a secular organization that was not built on "Christian" values (more likely the WWI initiation agenda of Cardinal Manning and the Roman Catholic Church).[5]

Within Turkey, a pro-Western, secular nationalist movement arose, Turkish national movement. During the Turkish War of Independence (1919–1924) led by one of the Turkish revolutionaries, Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, abolished the Treaty of Sèvres with the Treaty of Lausanne (1923).

In 1923, after the founding of the modern Republic of Turkey—the successor state of the Ottoman Empire—CONSTANTINOPLE was renamed İstanbul, Turkey.

Pursuant to Atatürk's Reforms, the Republic of Turkey abolished the position of Caliphate in 1924 and transferred its powers within Turkey to the Grand National Assembly of Turkey.

Motilal Nehru (6 May 1861 – 6 February 1931) was an Indian lawyer, an activist of the Indian National Movement and an important leader of the Indian National Congress, who also served as the Congress President twice, 1919–1920 and 1928–1929. He was the founder patriarch of India's most powerful political family, the Nehru-Gandhi family---AND the father of Jawaharlal Nehru. Motilal Nehru started on the path to become wealthy among the few leaders of the Indian National Congress. Under the influence of Mahatma Gandhi in 1918, Nehru became one of the first to transform his life to exclude western clothes and material goods, adopting a more native Indian lifestyle.

Jawaharlal Nehru (14 November 1889 – 27 May 1964) was the first Prime Minister of India and a central figure in Indian politics for much of the 20th century. He emerged as the paramount leader under the tutelage of Mahatma Gandhi and ruled India from its establishment as a "puppet" and "supposed independent nation" in 1947 until his death in office in 1964.

Assuming leadership of the Indian National Congress in 1921, Mahatma Gandhi led nationwide campaigns for easing poverty, expanding women's rights, building religious and ethnic amity, ending untouchability, but above all for achieving Swaraj or self-rule. Although Ghandi never held government office, he was regarded as the country's supreme political and spiritual leader.

Cardinal Gasparri believed that the peace conditions and the humiliation of the Germans would likely result in another war as soon as Germany would be militarily in a position to start one[5]and in 1933, the Vatican signed the Reich Concordat with Adolf Hitler.

Mahatma Gandhi was assassinated in 1948, following his agreement to the creation of the state of Pakistan.


Indira Gandhi and Queen Elizabeth II
Indira Gandhi was born Indira Nehru in a Kashmiri Pandit family on 19 November 1917 in Allahabad. Her father, Jawaharlal Nehru, became the first Prime Minister of the Union (and later Republic) of India (that is still a commonwealth of the British East India Trading Co.).

Indira Priyadarshini Gandhi was the third Prime Minister of India and a central figure of the Indian National Congress party. As Prime Minister, Indira Gandhi was known for her political ruthlessness and unprecedented centralization of power.[6] She went to war with Pakistan in support of the independence movement and war of independence in East Pakistan, which resulted in an Indian victory and the creation of Bangladesh, as well as increasing India's influence to the point where it became the regional hegemon of South Asia. Gandhi also presided over a state of emergency from 1975 to 1977 during which she ruled by decree and made lasting changes to the constitution of India.

The Guardian wrote in 2007 "The Nehru Gandhi brand has no peer in the world — a member of the Gandhi family has been in charge of India for 40 of the 60 years since independence. The allure of India's first family blends the right to rule of British monarchy with the tragic glamour of America's Kennedy clan."[7] Contrary to popular belief, Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (MAHATMA GHANDI) was not related to this family. The Gandhi surname came from Feroze Gandhi, whom Indira Priyadarshini Nehru (the daughter of Jawaharlal Nehru) married, and later chose to change her name to Indira Gandhi after marriage.[7b]

Amritsar, historically also known as Rāmdāspur and colloquially as Ambarsar, is a city in north-western part in India. It is the spiritual centre for the Sikh religion and the administrative headquarters of the Amritsar district in the state of Punjab. It is home to the Harmandir Sahib (commonly known as the Golden Temple), the spiritual and cultural center for the Sikh religion. This important Sikh shrine attracts more visitors than the Taj Mahal.

Full relations between the Vatican and United Kingdom were recognized in 1982, when Pope John Paul II visited the UK. However the Vatican continues to interfere in secular affairs putting pressure on the U.S., U.K. and other governments


The Holy See considered canceling the visit of Pope John Paul II to the United Kingdom because Britain defended the Falkland Islands following the Argentine invasion.

On 3 April 1982 the United Nations Security Council comprising the 5 permanent members and the 10 elected members (Poland, Spain, Ireland, Panama, Guyana, Japan, Jordan, Uganda, Zaire, and Togo) passed the Resolution 502 demanding an immediate withdrawal of all Argentine forces from the islands and called on the governments of Argentina and the United Kingdom to seek a diplomatic solution to the situation and refrain from further military action. Panama voted against this resolution, with China, Poland, Spain and the Soviet Union abstaining. All 10 remaining members voted for the resolution.

One of the most notable events in population growth control history was the fall of Indira Gandhi after allegations of forced steriliza­tion were made against her government. When Mrs. Gandhi accepted the first annual U.N. Population Award in New York in 1983, she restated that these allegations were without foundation[8]

It was the Vatican and its press manipulations that destroyed the Indira Gandhi government and made fools of her opposition government.

Operation Blue Star was an Indian military operation which occurred between 3–8 June 1984, ordered by Prime Minister Indira Gandhi in order to establish control over the "Golden Temple" in Amritsar, Punjab. Indira Gandhi was assassinated in the aftermath of Operation Blue Star.

Former R&AW officer B Raman's book confirms that the UK secret services stormed the Golden Temple in 1984 at the request of the Indian authorities. Raman, however, refers to them as MI5 operatives, the UK's internal security intelligence agency and not the Special Air Services.

Britain and a representative of the Falkland Islands have rejected the idea of Pope Francis intervening in the long-running dispute with Argentina over the islands, which Buenos Aires claims are Argentine territory. In 1982 Britain sent its armed forces to the Falklands to repel an Argentine invasion of the contested South Atlantic archipelago, which Argentina calls Las Malvinas.

Just over 30 years later, memories of the conflict remain and Argentine President Cristina Kirchner has mounted a campaign to renegotiate the islands' sovereignty, lobbying Pope Francis on the issue and rejecting a referendum in which Falkland residents voted to remain a British Overseas Territory. Pope Francis, the first Latin American pontiff, said in 2012 when he was archbishop of Buenos Aires that Britain had "usurped" the disputed islands from Argentina.[9]

Zubin Mehta is an Indian Parsi conductor of Western classical music. He is the Music Director for Life of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra and the Main Conductor for Valencia Italy's opera house. Zubin Mehta is also the chief conductor of Florence, Italy's Maggio Musicale festival.

February 4, 2014,  marked a “last,” perhaps one that will not go down in the annals of history as it should. Everybody knew it would be the last Vatican concert for Giorgio Napolitano, president of the Italian Republic, before he finished his term as Head of State, but nobody imagined it would be the last concert for Benedict XVI as Supreme Pontiff.[9b] The Italian Embassy to the Holy See offers the concert each year in commemoration of the Lateran Treaty, which reestablished the power of the Pope and made Rome a Sovereignty.

Samuel Morse (1791-1872), the co-inventor of Morse Code, wrote under the pen name of "Brutus," and tried to warn America in his report: "Foreign Conspiracy Against the Liberties of the United States" (1841, c1835). CLICK THE LINK HERE TO READ. You can also listen to an audio version of "Foreign Conspiracy Against the Liberties of the United States."

On February 11th, 1929, the Lateran Treaty was signed between the Italian Government and the Vatican re-establishing the global political power and diplomatic standing of the Pope—and establishing the Holy See at ROME as a Sovereign country under international law.

Future Generali has provided an event insurance policy to Zubin Mehta, who is an outspoken controversial figure on Middle East politics. The event insurance covers any financial loss of the event organizers due to various insured perils—including terrorism.

I have such a love for this country, Israel, that I see it as a tragedy what’s going on,” the Mumbai-born Zubin Mehta, now 77, said recently at the Pierre Hotel, a few blocks from Carnegie Hall, where he conducted an Israel Philharmonic benefit concert. “I speak openly about a country that I see, from my private musician’s perspective, as going in the wrong direction, as far as the settlements, as far as internal economic policies. But they know I’m a friend. And being in a democracy, I express my opinions freely.”[9b]

Unlike the Israeli musicians of the Israel Philharmonic, Mr. Mehta is able to travel to the Palestinian territories and often visits Ramallah in the West Bank: “With my Indian passport, I have no problem,” he said. “We have an ambassador there, and he sends his car.”[9b]  There, his encounters with Palestinian intellectuals confirm his relation with the Vatican, United Kingdom, European Union and United Nations for a proposed dual State.

Yet despite such statements, Mr. Mehta’s appearances with the Israel Philharmonic continue to get picketed by pro-Palestinian protesters. In the United States, Mr. Mehta said, it is most often in college towns that the orchestra encounters such demonstrations outside a venue, but there were also protests outside Carnegie Hall and the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles in 2011.[9b]  Before Zubin Mehta conducted a concert in September 2013, in Srinagar, India, the news of the concert was met by threats of terrorism. Civil society groups, journalists, and musical artists had opposed the concert being held in the Kashmir Valley, a region disputed by India and Pakistan. There, Muslim separatists threatened attacks and intimidated the Kashmiri musicians who were going to perform with the orchestra of the Bavarian State Opera, another ensemble long associated with Zubin Mehta.[9b] From 1998 until 2006, Mr. Mehta was Music Director of the Bavarian State Opera in Munich, Germany. The Munich Philharmonic named him its Honorary Conductor.

The Israel Philharmonic was founded on the eve of World War II as the Palestine Orchestra in 1936 — the year Mr. Mehta was born. When he first conducted the orchestra in 1961, its ranks still included some of the founding German musicians. “I spoke mostly German with them,” Mr. Mehta said (his own fluent German goes back to his student days at the Vienna Music Academy).[9b]

In August 2011, MUMBAI, INDIA'S largest consumer products company, Hindustan Unilever (HUL), and its biggest retailer, Future Group, co-developed and co-branded a line of bakery products that is sold exclusively at Big Bazaar stores. The bakery products sport both Hindustan Unilever's 'Modern' and Future Group's 'Freshly Baked' brands on their packs, and are sold in Big Bazaar shops in Mumbai. Future Group is an Indian private conglomerate, headquartered in Mumbai. The company is known for having a significant prominence in Indian retail and fashion sectors, with popular supermarket chains like Big Bazaar and Food Bazaar, lifestyle stores like Brand Factory, Central etc. Future Group is also known for having notable presence in the integrated foods and FMCG (Fast-moving consumer goods or consumer packaged good (CPG) products that are sold quickly and at relatively low cost) manufacturing sectors.

Generali is an Italian insurance company, having business in India through a joint venture with Future Group under the brand name Future Generali Insurance. Future Generali operates in India through two primary legal entities namely Generali India Life Insurance Co. Ltd. (Life Insurance) and Generali India Life Insurance Co. Ltd. (Non-Life Insurance).[10]

Since 2007, Future Generali India Insurance has been a joint venture between Future Group and Italian insurer Generalithe largest in Europe. Future Group owns 74 per cent stake in the company while the Italian insurer owns 26 per cent - the highest permissible limit by Indian laws.[10]

The East India Trading Company (now owned by Hindustan Unilever and the United Arab Emirates since 2005) started as an English joint-stock company,[11] formed to pursue trade with the East Indies but that ended up trading mainly with the Indian subcontinent, Qing Dynasty China, North-West Frontier Province and Balochistan. The company rose to account for half of the world's trade, particularly trade in basic commodities that included cotton, silk, indigo dye, salt, saltpetre, tea and opium. The company also ruled the beginnings of the British Empire in India.[12]

The largest ethnic group in Afghanistan, the Pashtuns, are also the second largest ethnic group in Pakistan, where over half of the world’s 50 million Pashtuns live, divided as they are by the Durand Line between Pakistan and Afghanistan. Pakistan, therefore, sees itself a major stakeholder in its western neighbor. Pakistan contributed more than any country in accommodating Afghan refugees during the 1979-89 Soviet war in Afghanistan and after the Soviet forces withdrawal. It had a devastating impact on the Pakistani economy, and the country’s social fabric was torn asunder because of the influx of Afghans, and subsequently, heroin smuggling and the weaponisation of its urban centres.

At the same time, Pakistan trained and supported the Afghan mujahideen during the war. These mujahideen groups have developed over time into the Afghan Taliban, and are seen as Pakistan’s proxies in countering the threat India poses to Islamabad’s interests in Afghanistan.

Afghanistan’s geo-strategic location is another lure for Pakistan and other regional stakeholders. As the gateway to Central Asia, and the West, Afghanistan serves as an important land-bridge. 

Pakistan is not India’s only rival in Afghanistan. China has invested $4.4 billion in the country so far, and has also won the bids for developing oil fields at Faryab and Sar-e-Pul, seriously challenging Indian investment in that region. China provided $150 million in aid to Afghanistan in 2011 and 2012, while last year the figure rose to $200 million.

India is battling hard to counter China’s economic challenge in Afghanistanbut Beijing is embarking on a ‘new Silk Road’ project to connect China by land and sea with the West—through Central Asia, and will not be easily edged out.


Forecasts past the recent "supposed" withdrawal of US and British forces in Afghanistan tend to prize fears of violence and instability spilling over into Pakistan, obscuring the country's vital importance to both India and China—and its "Silk Road" of copper, oil, hemp and opium trade to its international banking, drug cartels and pharmaceutical partners around the globe.

The Punjab region is a geographical region in South Asia comprising vast territories of eastern Pakistan and northern India. In Pakistan, it includes the Punjab province and parts of the Islamabad Capital Territory. In India, it includes Punjab state and Chandigarh union territory, Haryana, parts of Delhi, Himachal Pradesh, Jammu Division and Rajasthan.

In Revelation 13, John the Evangelist wrote that the first beast (final Antichrist) and his kingdom would be like a lion, a leopard and a bear. Daniel used these likenesses for the Babylonian, Media-Persian and Greek Empires. The lion could easily represent the United Kingdom and America. The Leopard could easily represent present-day Germany, and the bear could easily represent the Russian Federation. Let's not forget that the UN Security Council is made up of 5 permanent member nations (United States, UK, France, Russia and China)—and 10 non-permanent member States. All we need now is to consider that the Holy See at Rome and Hashemite Dynasty make up the last two kingdoms (read the Bible prophecy in 1 Thessalonians 5:3-4 about the UN Security Council and International Peace process).

Revelation 13:1 (NIV)
The Beast out of the Sea
13 The dragon[a] stood on the shore of the sea. And I saw a beast coming out of the sea. It had ten horns and seven heads, with ten crowns on its horns, 
and on each head a blasphemous name.

Revelation 13:1 Some manuscripts And I

Revelation 17:9-14 (NIV)
9 “This calls for a mind with wisdom. The seven heads are seven hills on which the woman sits. 10 They are also seven kings. Five have fallen, one is, the other has not yet come; but when he does come, he must remain for only a little while. 11 The beast who once was, and now is not, is an eighth king. He belongs to the seven and is going to his destruction.

12 “The ten horns you saw are ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but who for one hour will receive authority as kings along with the beast. 13 They have one purpose and will give their power and authority to the beast. 14 They will wage war against the Lamb, but the Lamb will triumph over them because he is Lord of lords and King of kings—and with him will be his called, chosen and faithful followers.”

Revelation 13 also informs us that the final Antichrist will usher in a world religious figure like the last Pope (Babylon the Great is a political system influenced by a world religious leader).

The "Second Beast" has a name. He is called the "FALSE PROPHET" three times. First in Revelation chapter 16:13, then in chapter 19:20, and again in chapter 20:10. Twice he is associated with the "First Beast" (final Antichrist) and once with the "Dragon" (Satan) and the "First Beast," and as they are PERSONS so must he be. The fact that he is called the "False Prophet" is proof that he is not the "Antichrist." Jesus had a foreview of him when He said--"There shall arise 'FALSE CHRISTS' and 'FALSE PROPHETS,' and shall show GREAT SIGNS AND WONDERS: insomuch that, if it were possible they shall deceive the very elect" (Matthew 24:24). Here Jesus differentiates between "FALSE CHRISTS" and "FALSE PROPHETS," therefore the "ANTICHRIST" and the "FALSE PROPHET" cannot be the same.


Revelation 13 (NIV)

The Beast out of the Sea

13 The dragon[a] stood on the shore of the sea. And I saw a beast coming out of the sea. It had ten horns and seven heads, with ten crowns on its horns, and on each head a blasphemous name. 2 The beast I saw resembled a leopard, but had feet like those of a bear and a mouth like that of a lion. The dragon gave the beast his power and his throne and great authority. 3 One of the heads of the beast seemed to have had a fatal wound, but the fatal wound had been healed. The whole world was filled with wonder and followed the beast. 4 People worshiped the dragon because he had given authority to the beast, and they also worshiped the beast and asked, “Who is like the beast? Who can wage war against it?”

5 The beast was given a mouth to utter proud words and blasphemies and to exercise its authority for forty-two months. 6 It opened its mouth to blaspheme God, and to slander his name and his dwelling place and those who live in heaven. 7 It was given power to wage war against God’s holy people and to conquer them. And it was given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation. 8 All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast—all whose names have not been written in the Lamb’s book of life, the Lamb who was slain from the creation of the world.[b]

9 Whoever has ears, let them hear.

10 “If anyone is to go into captivity,
    into captivity they will go.
If anyone is to be killed[c] with the sword,
    with the sword they will be killed.”[d]
This calls for patient endurance and faithfulness on the part of God’s people.

The Beast out of the Earth

11 Then I saw a second beast, coming out of the earth. It had two horns like a lamb, but it spoke like a dragon. 12 It exercised all the authority of the first beast on its behalf, and made the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast, whose fatal wound had been healed. 13 And it performed great signs, even causing fire to come down from heaven to the earth in full view of the people. 14 Because of the signs it was given power to perform on behalf of the first beast, it deceived the inhabitants of the earth. It ordered them to set up an image in honor of the beast who was wounded by the sword and yet lived. 15 The second beast was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that the image could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed. 16 It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, 17 so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name.

18 This calls for wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man.[e] That number is 666.

Revelation 14:8-12 (NLT)
8 Then another angel followed him through the sky, shouting, “Babylon is fallen—that great city is fallen—because she made all the nations of the world drink the wine of her passionate immorality.”

9 Then a third angel followed them, shouting, “Anyone who worships the beast and his statue or who accepts his mark on the forehead or on the hand 10 must drink the wine of God’s anger. It has been poured full strength into God’s cup of wrath. And they will be tormented with fire and burning sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and the Lamb. 11 The smoke of their torment will rise forever and ever, and they will have no relief day or night, for they have worshiped the beast and his statue and have accepted the mark of his name.”

12 This means that God’s holy people must endure persecution patiently, obeying his commands and maintaining their faith in Jesus.

Revelation 20:7-10 (NLT)

The Defeat of Satan
7 When the thousand years come to an end, Satan will be let out of his prison. 8 He will go out to deceive the nations—called Gog and Magog—in every corner of the earth. He will gather them together for battle—a mighty army, as numberless as sand along the seashore. 9 And I saw them as they went up on the broad plain of the earth and surrounded God’s people and the beloved city. But fire from heaven came down on the attacking armies and consumed them.

10 Then the devil, who had deceived them, was thrown into the fiery lake of burning sulfur, 
joining the beast and the false prophet. 
There they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.

If you have not formally accepted Jesus Christ, please accept the Gift of Salvation by saying this short prayer: "Dear Jesus, I repent of my sins and the original sin of mankind, please come into my heart and change me to trust in you and build my personal relationship with you by studying your word and applying it to my life to the best of my ability. Thank you for dying on the cross for the remission of sin. Thank you for conquering death with your resurrection. I accept you Jesus as my Lord and Savior, please lead me and guide me. Amen!"

If you have said that short prayer, I welcome you to the True Body of Christ (not a sect, Protestant or Catholic denomination or Eastern religion).

Hebrews 10:24-25 (NLT)
24 Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. 25 And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of His return is drawing near.

Please get into a Bible-based church, where the Word of God is taught unadulterated and reject the rituals, religious lies and Tradition(s) and hedonism of men and women.

After reading the life of Christ as presented in the Holy Bible and in the writings of some renowned Christian authors, Mahatma Gandhi admired the Sermon on the Mount (which shaped his whole philosophy of life), and he hoped to see the British, Church of England and Roman Catholic Church that claim to be "Christians" live up to its standards.

While living with Roman Catholics and Anglicans of the Church of England's colony churches in England, South Africa and India, Gandhi expected to experience qualities like unconditional love, forgiveness, willingness to sacrifice, meekness, etc (Qualities of Jesus Christ). To his utmost dismay, the professing "Christians" in his era never lived up to the standards preached by Christ in the Sermon on the Mount and on the Cross.

Seeing Gandhi live, the Christian missionary E. Stanley Jones asked him: “Mr Gandhi, though you quote the words of Christ often, why is it that you appear to so adamantly reject becoming his follower (Christian)”? Mahatma Gandhi's reply was clear:Oh, I don’t reject your Christ. I love your Christ. It is just that so many of you Christians are so unlike your Christ.”


Godspeed, love and Truth,

P.s. The Roman Catholic Church has not learned since the First Council of Nicaea in AD 325, that counterfeiting Christianity will have a consequence, or that T.I.M.E. means, "This I Must Earn."

2 Corinthians 11:12-15 (NKJV)
12 But what I do, I will also continue to do, that I may cut off the opportunity from those who desire an opportunity to be regarded just as we are in the things of which they boast. 13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ. 14 And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light. 15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works.
