SION (Stop Islamization of Nations) : Board Member
“World Hindu News” and other various Hindu news sources: Contributor
CSPI (Center for the Study of Political Islam): Guest Columnist
Of Note: Various secondary sources, such as Dr. Suseelan’s biographies on the American Freedom Alliance web page, “World Hindu News,” and other blogs claim Dr. Suseelan was a professor of clinical psychology and director of an addiction research institute in Pennsylvania. So far, however, very little corroborating evidence from primary sources has been found to substantiate these claims. (It is possible that Dr. Babu Suseelan was a professor at Marywood University in Scranton, Pennsylvania in the 1980’s based on an article attributed to him.)
Dr. Babu Suseelan is a Hindu nationalist with a claimed (please see note above) background in psychology and cognitive science. Dr. Suseelan is a frequent writer for various Hindu news outlets and his writings have been featured on anti-Islam sites and blogs as well, such as the CSPI (Center for the Study of Political Islam) and Jihad Watch. Dr. Suseelan is also a board member of SION (Stop Islamization of Nations) and has connections with known Islamophobes Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer. Dr. Suseelan was invited to speak at a 2012 gathering in New York headed by Pamela Geller on the anniversary of 9/11. Dr. Suseelan’s anti-Islamic rhetoric focuses around Islam as a political and societal threat. He often speaks on Islam as a threat specifically to India’s prosperity. His language is often derogatory and impassioned, on one occasion he compared Islam to “bacteria.” Below are only a few excerpts from a myriad of writings on the subject.
Not much recent information on Dr. Babu Suseelan is available. Most of his available articles date from 2008 to 2013. It is unclear what precisely his affiliations are to date, however, he is still listed as an associate fellow of the American Freedom Alliance on its web page.
Of Note: Quotes taken directly from Dr. Suseelan’s articles are unaltered, oftentimes his writing contains various errors.
Dr. Suseelan characterizes Islam as a serious threat, claiming that Islam is denigrating society and civilization.
“The Marxists are in collusion with Jihadis [emphasis added by author], anti national elements and miscreants attempting to deconstruct our society with apocalyptic ideas. Whatever the real motivations behind our enemies, the results are real. But our Hindus are resorting to denial, insular complacency. And instead of facing the challenges, they withdraw like a turtle withdrawing into their shell when faced with external threats.”
“But unfortunately, America, the greatest Nation on earth is face to face with the gravest danger ever to confront it. We are faced with Arab Imperialism. Arab Imperialism is paraded as a religion. The Arab originated Islam is no simple, it is a forthright threat. Islam is against all freedoms, democracy, rule of law, our constitution, and independent judiciary, equality, pluralism, and Human Rights.”
“It [Islam] poses a grave threat to modernity and political aspiration of the many.”
Dr. Suseelan claims Islam and Muslims are inherently violent and immoral.
“Muslims are not in need of any reason for rioting, beheading, killing and burning alive of Infidels. It is in Islam’s history and by nature, all Islamists are brutal, and aggressive. Throughout the 1400 years of Islamic history, everything Muslims have touched have been marred with Al-Taqyiea (lying) wars, plunder, looting, destroying culture, invasion, tyranny, massacre and Jihad terror.”
“The real fact is that Islam is an Arab Imperialist dogma, which is dangerous, rigid and instigate Muslims all over the world for establishing Dar-Ul-Islam through Jihad terrorism and rioting. The current roots against Americans and innocent Infidels is not because Hollywood made a real picture of Mohammad or misinterpreting cruel Islamic doctrine. But creating disturbances and killing infidels is what is required for all Muslims.”
“This ruthless Islamic practice and disregard of human life and dignity carries right down to every person in an Islamic country. Islamic plunder, looting and exploitation can be termed as the most barbarous crime in world history.”
“Islamic moral principles are a one-sided mechanistic, reductionist, non-compromising, and closed. The closed, rigid, predetermined and non-compromising Islamic paradigm and moral directives tend to place Muslims in opposition position in relation to non-Muslims. The reductionist Islamic morality carries the assumption that moral principles of non-Muslims are inferior and should be rejected.”
“The time has come for the public to take appropriate action. Jihadis are trying to instill fear in us. If we stand up and stand united, we will become more powerful and the Jihadis cannot put us is psychological trauma. We can fight back with determination. A strong determined assault on Islamists will preclude them from undermining our sense of security and disrupting our everyday life. We cannot prevail tomorrow or live in peace and tranquility without courageous action today. If we meet the challenges today with strength, will power and determination in order to insure our future well-being. By acting today against our enemies who are willing to die for their past, we are choosing our future and the future of children and our grandchildren yet to be born. Let us stand together and make our country great. Let us preserve our freedom and security.”
Dr. Suseelan defines mosques and Muslim religious centers as places of war.
“Mosques will ensure that Muslims become reliable Jihadis. Mosques are meeting place, hiding place, and a storage place for terrorist paraphernalia and weapons for Jihad war. Mosques are also shelter for radical Muslims. Mosques and Islamic religious centers serve as distribution points for hate literature.”
“Mosques are indoctrination centers where Muslims are taught to hate infidels. They are taught that Islam is a perfect and perfected religion that needs no reformation, renaissance or revision. They are trained to love death and throw reason to dogs.”
Dr. Suseelan characterizes Islam as a cognitive disorder and that it harms cognitive functioning.
“Since Islam is a closed dogma and Muslims are forbidden to test its validity or utility, and required to maintain the equilibrium at any cost, Muslims' thinking errors are overwhelming. Dysfunctional automatic thoughts coexist with various thinking errors in the Muslim mind.”
“As a result, Muslims are not capable of solving ethical dilemmas or hot political issues. Muslims are not known for regulating violent, deviant socially unacceptable behaviors which threaten all infidels. Islamic religious scholars or social leaders are reluctant to emphasize people’s ability to make rational decisions and alter behavior. In all Islamic countries positive reinforcement theory and its application has rarely been applied to task Islamic groups and their operations in macro settings. Islamic societies have not produced model leaders and coping strategies to deal with problematic situations including anger, stress, or other strong emotions. that Muslims confront every day. Positive reinforcement is rarely used to reinforce positive behaviors acceptable to the changing world. Islamic religious leaders and political leaders must take appropriate steps for Islamic cognitive restructuring and present to the masses a set of procedures used to replace self-defeating, illogical or automatic patterns of that interfere with social functioning with self-enhancing or logical ones. Because of young Muslims are conditioned at young age (through rote learning), they develop distorted perceptions on the non-Islamic world and events. As a result, Muslims experience frequent conflict with infidels. Most of the Muslims functioning on violence and aggression and their Islamic distorted consciousness determines what actions are right and wrong.”
