A 10,000-year-old Trident and a 3,000-year-old Vajra were unveiled today by researcher and businessman Syed Shameer Hussain. As per him, this centuries-old Trident (Trishul) belongs to Lord Shiva, and Vajra is the weapon of Indra, popularly known as the God of Rain and Storms in Hinduism.
At a Press Conference early today, Hussain said that the Trident and Vajra were found during mining in the Philippines in May 2015. Associated with copper ore and gold mining in the Philippines since 2012, Hussain has been working closely with the local residents.
“On May 5, 2015, the labour supervisor summoned me to the mining site after finding something unusual. I was quite surprised to see antiquities like the Trident and Vajra in the Philippines – I recognised these antiquities as Lord Shiva’s Trishul and Indra’s Vajra. I brought these antiquities to India in 2016 and began my research into it,” he said.
“I spent almost eight years trying to understand things. After a lot of research and discussion, I reached the conclusion that these are not just antiquities but are clearly associated with the roots of centuries-old Indian civilisation and culture,” he said, adding that he also discussed with archaeologists to ascertain the authenticity of thousands of years-old antiquities and came to the conclusion that the 10,000-year-old Trident directly belongs to Lord Shiva and the 3,000-year-old Vajra is the weapon used by Lord Indra.
