    Well my views are otherwise a bit. I believe the system is more influenced by developed countries. To confirm this one need to check inflating wealth plunders of few biggies that belong to such countries than with economic condition of a particular state. Since in my view it is more than related with corruption at higher levels of countries facing recession and down time.

    Hindus use it and need no permission in this regard.

    Jackbooted marchers were not Hindus but German.

    Gotta love the liberal crap in this thread.

    Hitler used the swastika because it symbolized the cultural and physical origins of the European people. Even today the genetic similarity between the two groups is striking.

    Indians and Europeans are the only two racial groups to which that tired old liberal mantra 'race is only skin deep' really does apply.

    Physiologically they're pretty much identical.

    Reminds me of a funny newspaper story I once read about a Jewish lady who ordered some sort of popular brand of panda-shaped biscuits imported from Asia, and was shocked to see them all stamped with "swastikas". Of course the Hindu symbology and complete disconnection from Hitler was promptly explained, but I think these were actually stamped for Buddhist purposes in a Buddhist country. Do some sects of Buddhism also use this symbol? (Edit: Just looked it up, answer is yes)

    Anyhow I think sometimes the Nazis drew their swastikas like this, but didn't they usually have it rotated by 45 degrees?

    I see you seem to get into this controversy everywhere you go, rcscwc. Perhaps others are perceiving your use of the symbol as insulting. You'd best try to figure out why it would strike them that way. Note that the Finns were smart enough to take the symbol off their planes once the Nazis began to use it.

    The swastika can also be drawn by a binary representation of OR. For OR to be true, either side must be opposites; it is ONE or 'the other' (0.)

    (x=or)

    011
    1x0
    100

    ...if this is one corner the other (four) corners may be represented in the same way:

    100011
    1x01x0
    011100
    001110
    0x10x1
    110001

    Buddhists and Jains too continue to use the symbol.

    Reminds me of an entry into web by a British lady'. Coming out of the exit terminal, she noticed a SWASTIKA on a cab stand. She shuddered. She avoided it. Got a cab, and nearly jumped out when she saw an illuminated SWASTIKA on the dashboard.

    Everywhere she went she could not help noticing SAWASTIKA!! Of course she soon realised there was nothing to be apprehensive about. Hmmm.

    No one is getting offended. Finns did not use it for religious purpose, we do. But I do not comment on Finns and their culture, except that we are not Finns..

    Do you want to curtail my religious rights to use this symbol?

    Swastika did originate in India as a Sanskrit word. Sure.

    Arya, Aryvrata, Aryputra, Arya Samaj etc too are of Sanskrit origin. In Sanskrit literature never have I seen a term ARYAN. This is of xitian invention, long before Max Muller!

    I am wondering if Buddhist also use this symbol with religious importance. That's pretty amazing thing to know.

    Only you see a controversy here.

    No one see it as insulting, except the ignorant ones.

    Finns perhaps did not have it as their cultural symbol.
