..of Vande Matharam and of dealing with bored guys..

I wonder what made these people/Maulavis come up with such a fatwa on Vande Matharam,now.. I am sick of dealing with Love Jidah,and yes,there comes Vande Matharam Fatwa..I have no idea why people can’t leave us laymen on their own. Your fatwas make no sense to us,except that you are adding fuel to our burning lives. Instead of combing your beautiful beards and rant unnecessary stuff,please come down to us and deal with our problems and instead of again issuing fatwas that  are of remote concern to a hungry man,may he be religious or not,please so something so that our lives have some betterment. Please provide us some food and opportunities for better education and empowerment,and then you are welcome to talk on matters like this.I am sure that the money spent on organizing that seminar would have been spent on much better productive activities.If you can’t do that,please refrain from making such statements as it is like throwing food to hungry animals,who are eager to tear it apart.

 Tell me what sense does this fatwa make to you and me,this day?When you are sure that your statement not only will bring anything good,but also will make situations worse,please keep such religious statments to yourself as we have no worries going to hell just because we sang Vande Matharam. And just in case we ended up in hell becasue of this,I will tell my Lord to excuse you from not providing us valuable fatwas…But I am sure that I alone would suffer then,instead of huge lot of people who have to answer to pointed fingers and have to rant ,like me,to prove how patriotic I am to my motherland. Thank God I love Vande Matharam,otherwise I’ld have had to pick my train to Lahore this evening,for people who don’t sing this song are not allowed to stay in this country.And yes,tell me why don’t you issue a fatwa against science lessons at school,for evolution and other stuff is totally against creationism. Should I stop learning Vedic Maths?

And yes,I am happy that I am going to read on various Sanghi statements these days,as this is a good fodder for those people who were bored after the sad election results. You are bored,so you issed a fatwa,They are equally bored,so they are going to sing songs over this ..I suggest Thakereys to brew on something else rather than book us tickets to Pakistan.If anyday I need a litmus test on my nationalism and patriotism,i’ll come to you.And you fatwa-issuers  aren’t any better than Sanghis as your sole intention is to divide the community and make your grip over us,more tightened.If it were not so,you would have made more involvement is issues that are basic to religion. But let me tell you again,your statement makes no sense to us,for we are proud Indian Muslims whose faith is no weak as a strand of white beard. We know what we believe in,we know what we stand for,we know what we are proud of,we know to which community do we belong to,and finally,we know that people like you are good for nothing except create issues and spoil our daily life peace.




p.s :I remember BJP leaders doing lip-sync of Vande Matharam,when they all sang it together,the last time this fatwa issue made news. So,are they eligible to be transported to Lahore?

  1. That is true.. They are all bored and all they want is some issue to rake up and create some noise over it.. Be it the Sangh Parivar or the Maulvis..

  2. yawwn !! whats next to find fault ? how about ‘Twinkle Twinkle Little Star’ ???



  3. Just learned something and feel no issues inside 😀
    can’t understand what issues are being talked about, but could feel the agony inside you are more on emotions… of being disturbed by issues

    hope everything will be in peace one day… may be ppl would make the world for a congenial living….. ….) just my dream! I know it will never be true… never…..)


    🙂 don’t lose hope,for there are many good people around us,who aren’t fanatics..


    • I wanted to tell that I felt no issues in my mind on which I would talk on such weighted topic…

      After submitting the comment, I read again and found that it is not that clearly stated what actually I meant 🙂

      thanks for visiting my blog 😀



    • Let us not say it will never be true!!

  4. How about a link? I’m in the US, and didn’t have the faintest idea what you were talking about, had to google it. But I will say, this is a great piece of writing—your first paragraph is beautiful!


    Long time no see Uzza 🙂

    Thanks for your kind words..and here is the link..

    Fatwa issued against ‘Vande Mataram’

    Good day…Nimmy

  5. Very well written Nimmy. And anyway is singing the Vande Mataram a proof of patriotism?

    There were some relevant tweets, I will share… let me find them.

  6. Great post . That is the first thing that came to my mind . First , why force anyone to sing it ? Second , why issue a fatwa against it ? Its like , the groundwork for some serious controversy is being done .

  7. Good post. Communalists do not care abt real issues. If you take up real issues of poverty, unemployment ,lack of basic health amenities, rising prices. gender issues etc you cannot divide society in communal lines. Without division they cannot rule.

  8. I find fatwas extremely lopsided anyways! These people should help the junta rather than bother them!

  9. What you said is exactly right. Fodder for the BJP. When will these fatwa givers learn!!

  10. Hi Nimmy,

    Thanks a lot for this post, I have read it but will come later to comment as quite busy with work 😦

    Just found this article on rediff, which I thought is worth sharing, this actually tells what this rally was all about and the double standard being followed by people.


  11. Nice post Sister… 🙂 🙂 but I donno why all this hiccups…
    there are other major things like basic amenities in question for lot of people in this country.. instead these petty things coming up again and again…

    • Exactly what I feel Kanagu! real issues r never tackled here .. rather nt even recognised as issues 😦

      • I agree as well!
        the real and actual issues… the problems faced by the common man is never tackled!


        Part of the blame is on us too,for not putting enough pressure on the people concerned -Nimmy

  12. hmmm these jobless peoples are making our life terrible ……fatwas\idayalekhanams \ kalpanas…. unfortunately they don’t know what is faith,religion and all ……even in bible, Rebukes Religious Hypocrisy in many places…..we are loosing our good old days coz of these jobless people

    @ IHM,thanks for your words dear..In fact,this is a random post written hastly,out of anger..

    @Kislay,long time no see dude 🙂 Yes,i agree with you,why force it down the throat of people,and why make issue about a simple song,whose history and meaning is not known to majority of people..

    @Charakan,so true Doctor.. Our agonies are their fodder…Sad that we are not recognizing it..Even if we recoginze it,we are not ready to react gainst them..

    @Nova,ha ha..Fatwas have become somthing comical,just bcoz only bcoz those fatws that are of masala-type are projected..

    @Nita,so true dear.. Actually,they know very well ,of what they are talking about.They intentionally do it,just create discord..

    @mustaf,thanks for the link..It is a long article,and i read till half portion.Will read it and share my thoughts..

    @Kanagu,exactly..But we,aam aadmi is interested in problems rather than solutions.Otherwise,we would ahve presuaded them to give us our rights and necessities. The fact is that the common people find it funny and interesting to discuss and discuss and discuss,rather than work out solutions..

    @Swaram,”real issues r never tackled here .. rather nt even recognised as issues ” how perfectly said my dear..Ah,maybe things will change some day..

    @Anish,you are right.For the majority of people,these fatwas or kalpanas make no sense and they are least bothered about it. and that is exactly why these [eople make lot of noise through the media so that their vioce/noise is heard loud and clear..We ahve lot of bored reporters who are ready to take up even a dysentry of Minister’s son..

    Good day to all..Sorry for all typos. I am online after a week, I hope you guys aren’t angry with me for late replying to comments…

  13. On an unrelated note, I would love to visit Lahore! I think it is a wonderful place. Hmmmm… the partition has spoiled tourism!!
