Saffron terror? Is saffron a color of Hindu terrorism? Then can green be associated with ******c terror? Why or why not? Is saffron a really dirty color or is there a deliberate attempt to bring into disrepute? Dubbing terrorism as SAFFRON immidiately brings into disrepute a whole range of Indian Dharmas. In Sanatan Dharma (Hinduism), deep saffron color is associated with sacrifice, religious abstinence, quest for light and salvation. Saffron or "Bhagwa" is the most sacred color for the Hindus and is often worn by "Sanyasis" who have left their home in search of the ultimate truth. Buddhist monks in the Theravada tradition typically wear saffron robes (although occasionally maroon--the color normally worn by Vajrayana Buddhist monks--is worn). (The shade of saffron typically worn by Theravada Buddhist monks is the lighter shade of saffron shown above.) Sikhs use saffron as the background color of the Nishan Sahib, the flag of the Sikh religion, upon which is displayed the khanda sahib in blue. Saffron turban is very popular among Sikhs. Of course blue is another sacred color of Sikhism. Yellow color is closely associated with saffron, and is interchangeable. For Hindu ritual altars, Ganeshji can be drawn in saffron or yellow colours. Associating saffron with terrorism is tantamount to dubbing the whole range of Indian dharmas as terrorists, starting from thousands of years ago. Rajputs have long associated saffron dress as symbol of the lasr desperate battle. Rajput armies in SAFFRON dress were ferocious, not of afraid of being killed in battle of do-or-die. Last. Our National flag has a yellow strip, at the TOP. Is our tiranga a flag of terror? Minoritis appeasers may, tommorow, demand a change in the flag too.
