  1. Hi Bro
    Thank you for the information. I would like t know was Mahatma Gandhi a Freemason.
    Bro Deven n Dave

  2. No. There is no evidence that Mohandass K. Gandhi was a Freemason, otherwise his name would have been in the above list.

    1. How can swami vivekananda be a freemason?
      He was a hindu and yogi.isnt it?

    2. You can practice ur religion while you are a freemason just to show the public because mostly this type of information is not revealed.

    3. Freemasonry has nothing to do with religious, You can come from any religion and you can be a mason.

    4. King David was first King of Jews. Freemasonry is about construction of first temple of Jews presently under control of Muslims. मंदिर वही बनांगे !

    5. Lol!. It is clearly a pagan satanic cult. Just watch some interviews with 33 degree Freemasons.
      Jerusalem temple, Pyramids and other stories are their myth just like any other religions!.
      I have talked with an ex-mason. I decided that, never get messed up with them!. Better choice is join them and enjoy the benefits.

  3. Very nice info!! (no doubt Satan has his power though Earthly Governance). I would like to know more on Freemason activities in India.

  4. The name 'Pradhan' in the information "Sir Bhalchandra K. Pradhan – Medical Practitioner, after whom the Sir Bhalchandra Road, Dadar, Mumbai is named." is incorrect. It ought to be 'Bhatavadekar'.

  5. hi,
    i have difficulty in making and keeping goals, and to make long story short, my life and mind are in utter chaos.
    i heard the the freemasons are about making better men out of good. can they help me become a better person?
    If so, then how can i join the masons? (i live in bangalore)

    1. please do not get involved with the freemasons. be careful of them. all i can say is that they use people with weak wills for their own sadistic agendas. Look up Monarch method of Mind Control and you will know what I mean. Take care and God bless you. You just need some determination and faith in the true God to help you. I will be praying for you.

  6. was rajiv gandhi a freemason

  7. Want to know if anyone from Indian Defence are part of free mason

    1. ya,i want to know that too

    2. Wg.Cdr.R.S.MurthyApril 15, 2013 at 7:33 AM

      Yes. There are many, many of them including me. There is a separate lodge for defence people only

  8. My fellow indian brothers..pls wake up ...dont get blinded by this satanic cult can realize ur dreams without following this satanic tradition...i am not being skeptical abt this ...they are not as good as they look frm the isnt a doorway to realo success as it may seem some research abt their mad riruals and thwir goals...

    1. Do you think this list is correct??
      Because this list also includes swami vivekananda..
      Do you have any idea?

    2. The list is taken from site of Grand Lodge of India and can be seen here;

      Yes, it does mention Swami Vivekananda as a Freemason.

    3. Yes, you are right.
      I am just unable to know , how can vivekananda be a member of such an organisation..

    4. Yes, swamy vivekananda was a freemason, I do not understand why you surprise? One should not distinguish what is devine or demonic without learning a bit of it. Do not believe in heresays and rumours.

  9. Sir syed Ahmed khan was a free mason but. He had high regards in Muslim can it be???

  10. Sir Sayed did a great job for muslim education.but on personal front he had a strange beliefs.which are far from islam.

  11. Great information Thanks for the good work

  12. nice information. keep it up

  13. never knew they were that many.
    Good information keep it up

  14. very good information, these free emasons are anti christ and anti islam, their aim is to rule the world with blodd shed and now they are doing it, they are the devil worshippers. please be safe from free masons.

  15. Free Masons are devil worshipers, they are eagerly waiting for Dajjal to come and rule this world. They worship Dajjal (One Eye Devil). These Free Masons have members all over world and are trying to convert all persons into mason (devil worshiper). I dont understand how these big names of every filed is a Mason.
    ya phir unki Akal gu khane gayi hogi

  16. i know about all this stuff but a question that arise in my mind is that every person in that list is the one trying to bring modern education and westernization(clothing and thinking) to a developing country in India and this surely changed life of people...its a good deed how does they belong to devils....i mean Sir Syed educated ppl how is that bad??

    1. If you go into depth of the so called modern education and development, you'll find it is nothing but "Dajjalism".

  17. Many of you have the question regarding Vivekananda.

    Vivekananda as a very young man was a free spirited enquirer, a very bright student in a western education college and quite close to his teachers and other westerners. It was in that phase that he joined Masons curious about what it is. He soon disassociated and never participated.

  18. Swamiji was attracted to the tenets of Freemasonry. He was initiated into Lodge Anchor and Hope in February, 1884 and became a master mason in May,1884. He assimilated the teachings of Universal Brotherhood and even called himself Bro. Vivekananda.

    His adherence to Universal Brotherhood was reflected, when he commenced his famous address in Chicago in the Parliament of Religions, addressing the audience as “ Brothers and Sisters of America”. A Convention of all the Lodges was held in Chicago at the same time and Bro. Swami Vivekananda could not attend the same due to his participation in the Parliament of Religions. Nevertheless Swamiji met W.Bro.Connor and the latter in his letter dated January 22, 1894 to W.Bro.Gilbert W.Bernard introducing Swamiji had written as follows.

    “ I take very great pleasure in introducing to you personally and as a freemason, our East India Brother Swami Vivekananda, whom I examined in the English Work, in which he was made a Master Mason in Anchor and Hope , 236 E.C.” .

    To all the detractors of the Mystic Tie...... Before you railroad the Brotherhood... Get an education, know us .. know what we do and then take an informed call instead of believing everything you are told.

    1. How can some one know you? what is the way to know your brotherhood?

  19. Great piece of history surprised to see no new posts, keep up the good work though

  20. Swami Vivekananda was a peace loving human so he joined freemasons i guess. but you know no good can be achieved without a little trace of bad. the freemasons are here to relieve us of blind faith which leads us to tragedy and destruction.
    Swami Vivekananda gave his world famous speech in chicago on 9/11/1893. you add 108 to 1893 and you get 2001. that is the year pentagon was attacked on the same date 9/11/2001.

    i guess the attack was for a reason which will be revealed in the year 2109.

  21. dear sir
    it may be intresting to see if these eminent personalities were also part of rotary/lion's clubs etc. it may throw up intresting facts!!!
    with best wishes

  22. can I know nizam of hyderabad was a freemason

  23. Any bollywood current actor? (Salman khan comes closest to mind is he?)

  24. what is the reason for establishment of free mason or any secret society . what is their aim or what they want to achieve?

    1. Freemasonry is aimed to impart knowledge among non-Jews about first temple of Jews and thus seek to enlist support of non Jews for a Jewish state in Palestine and possession of site of first temple of Judea presently under occupation of Muslims. every secret society has hidden aims peculiar to such society.

  25. is this worshiping saithan ? what are you worshiping ?

  26. It is learnt that Freemasons have black magic and even women are part of the club. Is it true ? Some say, Freemasons have free sex with anyone at the secret meetings they have. Is it true ? People in the group normally become very rich and famous based on the support of fellow members. Is it true ?

  27. The real objective behind Freemasons movement is still not clear. All big names who enter the group normally become rich and famous. There is some hidden agenda behind this group.

  28. 1. check masonic index and article secret of freemasonry revealed.

    2. normally only big and famous names are allowed to join this group.

    3. it is Jewish.
