Good day to all..

Hindutva-ization/Gujarat-ization(or whatever it means) of my India..

Edited to add :This is not a post about Manglore pub attack.

Yeah,I am adding more to those endless posts on ‘Holy people preserving Indian culture’ floating around in blogoshpere.My friends have already put it in best words,that I have hardly anything better to say.I support you in the fight of individual freedom.Lets not make our nation another Saudi or Afghan..

Amrutha has a post on the topic,but the link she provided seemed disturbing.The author of that article justifies this incident as,‘The Rama Sainiks have done a good job in saving Hindu girls.  I am not saying this.  The masses in Mangalore stand by these so-called hooligans because they want to protect their women from the clutches of the oh-so-peaceful Islamic jehadis ” I was wondering when and how did islam or jiahdist or terrorism come in the frame..Reading more on the thread,I stumbled upon articles in OutlookIndia and IndiaToday,which persuaded me to have a look into the matter,from their viewpoint.Sharing some thoughts.

The incident of pub attack is not simply about moral policing or about political drama.See a few communal stirrings that the state (Karnataka ) has witnessed, especially in the coastal districts, after the BJP came to power last May.

  •  June 9, 2008: Temple affairs minister Krishnaiah Shetty issues circular to 34,000 temples to perform special puja for newly sworn-in CM. Order later modified after protests.
  • August 10, 2008: Karnataka Rakshana Vedike attacks a group of 35 people allegedly holding a ‘rave party’ at Manchanabele Dam
  • August 14, 2008: State-owned Mahabaleshwara Temple in Gokarna transferred to Ramachandrapur Math, known for its save-the-cow campaigns
  • August 29, 2008: The Public Instruction Department issues notices to all Christian institutions in the state to shut down to protest the violence against Christians in Orissa. Notice precursor to statewide attacks on churches.
  • September 14, 2008: With Mangalore as the epicentre, Sangh parivar activists attack Christian prayer halls and churches across state. More churches attacked three days later.
  • October 16, 2008: The largest-selling Kannada newspaper claims on its front page that conversions have gone up alarmingly after Sonia Gandhi-Congress came to power. Debates the issue on its Op-Ed page for over a month.
  •  October 30, 2008: Bajrang Dal activists attack two undertrials in Mangalore district sub jail; sixth such attack after its chief Mahendra Kumar’s arrest on September 20.
  • December 12, 2008: Aggressive posturing at Baba Budangiri by parivar leaders and Hindu pontiffs
  • December 27, 2008: Hoysala Sene attacks Fuga bar in Bangalore, alleges illegal activities
  • December 28, 2008: Bajrang Dal activists attack a bus ferrying students on a study tour to Mysore, saying girls and boys from different religions can’t travel together
  • January 6, 2009: B.V. Seetharam, editor of Mangalore-based newspaper Karavali Ale, who followed a strong anti-parivar editorial line, handcuffed and arrested in alleged extortion case. Prior to his arrest, parivar elements vandalise paper’s office.
  • January 7, 2009: Laddoos distributed in some schools across the state on Vaikunta Ekadashi. Congress demands biriyani should be distributed on Ramzan.
  • January 19, 2009: An arrested dacoit reportedly confesses links with radical Hindu groups and admits to carrying out the Hubli district court bombing before the May assembly elections
  • January 25, 2009: Sri Rama Sene activists attack pub in Mangalore and molest and beat up women
  • January 25, 2009: Bajrang Dal activists attack a private party in Mangalore
  • January 28, 2009: Muzrai department orders temples to perform special puja to ward off “ill-effects” of the solar eclipse [source]

Coming back to the recent incident of pub attack,BJP has distanced itself from Muthalik.But Outlook reports that in August 2007, when Yediyurappa was deputy CM in the H.D. Kumaraswamy cabinet, as many as 51 cases were withdrawn against parivar men, of which Mutalik is the first accused in many of these cases while VHP leader Praveen Togadia figures prominently in others.

Earlier,these guys were back of cows..They wanted the Centre to declare cow as a national animal and ban its slaughter. In March 2005, the outfit paraded naked a Muslim father and son in Adi Udupi in front of 500-600 people for allegedly “illegally trading in cows”.

However, the most common reason by far for a communal flare-up relates to the ‘mingling’ of youngsters from different communities. G. Rajashekar, co-author of The Dark Faces of Communalism, a book on communalism in Karnataka, says that according to data he has collected between May 2008 and now, there have been “14 recorded incidents of violence against Hindu girls for having been seen with either a Muslim or a Christian boy”. Prof Phaniraj, a rights activist teaching at a Manipal engineering college, says: “Since 1998, the frequency of communal incidents in the Dakshina Kannada area has increased.

The invariable plot for violence, he adds, is about a boy from a Muslim or Christian community ‘found being friendly’ with a Hindu girl, which leads to the self-styled protectors of the Hindu faith ‘intervening’ to ‘free’ the girl. Except intervening here means thrashing the boy. “We should remember that there was a sustained campaign against the Muslim community in Gujarat before Godhra happened,” says Phaniraj. Just prior to the Surathkal riots in 1998, a lot of pamphlets warning young Hindu women against going with Muslim boys were circulated.

The man who instigated the pub attack, Prasad Attavar, had in 2007 assaulted a Muslim boy at the Ideal Ice-cream Parlour in the heart of Mangalore for talking to a Hindu girl. More ghastly, however, was the 2005 incident in a Puttur cinema when two men (one Muslim) and two Hindu women working in an areca processing factory had gone to see a movie. Around 150 Bajrang Dal activists barged in, dragged the four out and assaulted them before handing them over to the police. As recently as six months ago, a Muslim and Hindu couple living together were forced to return to their native Gadag by parivar activists. “Intrusion into private spaces has become common,” says Phaniraj.

Besides the coastal districts, there has been an uneasy calm at other flashpoints like Baba Budangiri since 2004, where the Sangh parivar is hell-bent on converting the Sufi shrine with a rich tradition of religious syncretism into an exclusive Hindu pilgrimage centre. BJP leader H.N. Ananth Kumar had vowed to make it the ‘Ayodhya of Karnataka’. The Hubli Idgah Maidan issue had cropped up temporarily in September 2004 when Uma Bharati courted arrest and lost her chief ministership, but there has been little noise since then. The silence is eerie, however, and with a BJP government in power, pregnant. [source]

 

My dear friends,this incident is not about culture,but about religion..Its for you and me to decide on what  lessons do we learn from this incident.

 

 

p.s:

On January 17, 2008, while addressing a rally in Udupi, Muthalik said: “It’s time for blasts. Malegaon is just a trailer. Every house should have a person like Pragya Singh. Every housewife will carry bombs now.”[Watch video ]..

What have you done so far,as to wipe out the menace of terrorism?

Nobody wants to speak about terrorism until and unless a blast occurs. Once there happens such a sad incident, we all get back to attacking mode. We slam the government, we slam the religion, and we slam each other until we are bored. Again we find bliss in escapism until the cycle repeats. Maybe it’s high time that we recognize that killing those individuals will not help us for getting rid of the menace. If it had been so, there should have been peace established long before..

 

To me, the process of banning organizations or detain individuals makes no much difference as in concern the bigger frame. Rather than just applying corticosteroids that deludes us to feel that wound has been healed, maybe we should look and act beyond the peripheral and go deep into the psyche of the people who join these terror groups. The scenario may seem simple, but to my understanding, there are complex links between the causes of terrorism and the role various actors play in promoting and combating them. Rather than just a group of people committing a crime, recent incidents tells us more of involvement from various strata ,may it be from the bureaucratic level or by those major players of our civil society and above all, the criminal elements.

 

I may not be wrong when I try to list down the reasons for the support of the killer ideology as related to exclusion, injustice, alienation,helplessness,despair,ignorance and prejudice. Terrorist leaders feed on there factors and exploit them whenever they find a sympathetic audience and thus gather support for their outfits. In today’s global village, injustice in one corner can easily be used to raise support in another part of the world. That maybe the reason why we see lot of people raising their voice against the plight of Gaza-ians and Darfur-ians,even when Kashmiri Pundits of their own land are under the same plight. It may not be that they don’t care about Pundits,but lines of correlation are drawn between one’s despair and people of Gaza or Iraq.They feed on what is being fed. To a hungry cow, it doesn’t matter whether Ram or Muhammed or Jacob is feeding him. If his needs are met, he will be ready to join that side which suits him more.

 

If gunning down these people had helped, we would have been in a state of bliss by now.If it was that easy or simple ,wonder why we are still struggling to deal with them? Unless you kill the idea that gives birth to such elements, the problem will continue to bother you time and time again. What have we(read Government) done in the regard? As of now all that done has alienated people from the main stream resulting in further aggression or feel of discrimination. Am I wrong?

 

To my understanding, the only solution for this menace is to support community-driven development and thereby build the capacity of communities to resist extreme religious and political ideologies-may it be jihadist or the hindutva stuff. Why not encourage interfaith dialogues between religious and community leaders so that there is more of transparency and tolerance. On a more important note it may do wonders of our media is regulated. I needn’t rant as to what is and how is our media delivering as of today. Above all, we should give greater attention to job opportunities and education for youth as to prevent the emergence of fragile segments of population. If people have their own business to mind and are rightly informed-may it be religious or political ideologies- and with the addition of a closely knit community relations, I wonder who on earth will bother to mind others business. Finally, rather than keeping eyes closed and be in bliss, we need to analyze how the concept of ‘Global Village’ affected our nation and look into facts and understand the trend of how the various strata of our society in general are functioning. I doubt if we can say that India is really shining..

 

Good day to all..Do share your thoughts..

p.s:My headline for the psot seems weird, can’t think of anything better ..

What went wrong with Pakistan as a nation?

 

If it was so called violent islamic ideology,that was to be blamed,well I guess more conservative countries like Saudi and like had to be blamed..Why is it that Pakistan has become the epicenter of terrorism?

 

This question was asked to a few friends of mine,of different nationalities.Read their responses and finally,do share your thoughts..

 

 

Corruption is the only answer.Corruption results in all of those things.If only there was no corruption then Pakistan would be economically stable.Just like in Zimbabwe,it used to be one of the best countries in the 3rd world countries but because of corruption now the countrie’s economy is at stake

 

 

Honestly, its Pakistan’s bad luck that they share a border with Afganistan. All the militants and terrorists flew in to the country during the war. It spreaded extremism like an epidemic.

 

The people went wrong & that is why Allah appointed such rotten rulers on us. We all say we are Muslims but where can you see the real Islam????????????? It just sucks every where, all over. We use Islam as a shield to hide our nasty deeds.

 

 

Many things went wrong!

 

  1. weak institutions! exepct army there is not a single institution which is strong and not currupt!
  2. selfish politicians! 90% politicians are selfish and abuse the power.
  3. less emphasis on education. since independance not much was spend on education, that left majority of population illetrate which as a result is easy to manuplate by mullahs and politicians
  4. role of other countries! countries like saudia and USA called themselves as allies and friends of pakistan, however they always used pakistan for there own agendas and that created the mess!
  5. the decade of 80’s! in that decade USA helped create taliban and stuff to fight soviets- this brought the hardcore islamic ideology in homes of pakistan
  6. increased spending on defence as a result less spending on development! this is something not fault of pakistan as a nation-we were forced to do so because of threat from india! and sadly still have to spend more on defence for our survival!
  7. afghans in pakistan! we allowed them to come and live in our country after soviet invasion-they brought drugs and guns along with them which literaly destroyed the social fibre of pakistani society!
  8. incread emphasis on pan-islamism, rather than nationalism.this created a confused society!
  9. ethnic problems! since independance no hard step was taken to build the sense of a nation and provide with a social glue-as a result most people identify themselves on ethnic terms 😦
  10. and partly all the pakistanis! we are too selfish to think for our country!

 

 

However- despite all the problems in the world we have stood for 60 years and inshAllah we would rise again. our nation is more strong than perhaps any other nation of world! like every one looted us, used us, kicked us, took advantage of us, but still here we are 🙂 facing all the challenges!

 

 

Corruption!!!! CORRUPTION!!!!! it bugs me but what I have seen in Bangladesh and Pakistan the problems are far different from that of Sausi Arabia. In Pakistan almost all trouble, yes absolutely almost ALL, are rooted in Politics not “radicalism” as in Saudi Arabia. Pakistan is not stable yet, and its politicians are making full use of the instability to grab the chance to ….well… grow corrupt… They are stewing up conspiracies, from secret deals with the USA to agreements with the Taliban, and they do them just to get a little edge on the politics. Everyone from Radicals to Secularists are taken full advantage of, and thats what is causing even more even instability leading to a vicious circle

 

I love Pakistani people and their culture. They are my all time favourite Criket team. I learnt Urdu just because I had so many friends who are Pakistani. Believe me when I say I care deeply for the good people of Pakistan and their welfare.

 

As a whole But I am sickened by some people there. Of course there are radicals as there are in all other countries in the world. But they are being used, as are the Pro-Westerners……..

 

No I dont agree with Pakistani Fundamentalists, there are conservative parts of Pakistan where people love to be conservative, I say let them be and not force them to be secularized. There are also Secularized parts of Pakistan who are not responding positively to the increasing pressure to conflict with the western culture. I say let them find their own path through it instead of have their emotions played into politics that are dividing the country so much

 

 

Our Corrupt Leaders. Every President or Prime Minister since Liaqat Ali Khan is somehow corrupt in one or another way. And so are our civil servants, bureaucrats and judiciary.

Our Army leaders are blamed for undemocratic policy of theirs but i think they had to come to stop the country to fall. They however stopped it from falling but soaked it all.

 

 

I believe the biggest sin of ours is that we haven’t been able to do what we promised to Allah when this great Nation was built as a result of sacrifices of Millions. We got distorted, we did not care fore our religion and our country.

Unfortunately many among us are still ignorant of the facts. They still do not accept Pakistan as a nation and they do not strive as they must to Protect this Nation.

 

 

BUT, now we can find patriots more than before. Our people have realized the causes behind the unfortunate events which this nation has passed through. And Insha’ Allah in a short passage of time we will rise again with the might of Salah-Al din, Tariq and Bin Qasim.

 

REmember that if a Nation so poor can be a Nuclear Nation, if it can still survive after passing through so hardships, if it has an Army of 0.7 million Brave soldiers and most of All if it had been for the sovereignty of God and God alone, IT Can never be perished. It can be broken but ultimately it will rise!

 

 

Bin Laden is dead and the FBI does not believe he did 9/11. So anytime they start talking about him you can assume it’s a lie.

 

There is actually no credible evidence that Pakistan was involved in the Mumbai hotel fiasco. The primary suspects were Hindu fascists.

 

The Pakistanis are going through suffering because they reject Israel.

And in truth, they are right. So, they should fight this and win. I mean, they’ve got the nukes don’t they?

 

Best thing they can do is just keep doing what they are doing

 

 

“Terrorism” or “Terrorist” are flimsy and baseless terminology. They cannot be clearly defined NOR do they exist.

 

If a crime happens in Pakistan or by a Pakistani it is called terrorism. If the same happens in India or by Indians or in America or Americans it is given a different name i.e. burglary, homicide, pschotic etc. etc.

 

The world did NOT know the “TERMINOLOGY” of “Terrorism” or “Terrorist” before 1988. It was INVENTED by Americans AFTER 1988. By 1986 it was clear to USA that USSR was collapsing. The American economy needs a war every 10 years. So they need an enemy. An enemy that is EVIL. Do you watch the movies. There are good guys and the bad guys. And the there is HARDLY any movie that can be made WITHOUT the role of “Bad Guys”.

 

So the USA first came up with the terminology of “Fundamentalists”. This was discarded in a matter of 2 years. By the end of 1988 and begining of 1989 the world was introduced to the terminology of “Terrorist and Terrorism”.

 

The thing is that how would define it. India calls all the Kashmiri activists as “Terrorists”. While they are heroes for the Kashmiris. So what is a terrorist for one group, is a hero for the other. This obviously means that the definition is NOT absolute but RELATIVE. Change the reference and there is a DRASTIC change in status.

 

The small terrorists and their deeds are NOTHING !!!!!!!!!! compared to the ORGANIZED crimes of the bigger powers these days. A suicide bomber :

 

1- might himself be a victim of a family that got perished in a bombing raid of US.

 

2- Or he may be a very poor guy who has no hope in life. He is given some religous motivation and assurance of ample monetary funds to his starving family in return for a holy deed.

 

3- OR he may be an ANTI nationalist who is financed by the cross border agents for an ample sum of money.

 

4- There can be a NUMBER of possibilities.

 

But how much damage can he do. He may kill some tens of people AT the most.

 

Compare this to :

 

1- The mass murder of 20,000 Bosnian Muslims. And the world just kept silent for a LONG LONG LONG time. All that was done was just a few (5 or 6) people captured and tried in Hague. Is there a comparison of +20,000 with 5 or 6.

 

2- How the world reacted in a very SIMILAR situation in East Timur. The ONLY factor that was not common was the sides of the table were different this time.

 

Is it NOT a SHAMEFUL and disgraceful display of “MULTIPLE standards”.

 

Take the case of Kashmir and Kuwait and Palestine. Don’t u feel the CLEAR MULTIPLE standards.

 

—-

 

Being an observing Pakistani citizen, I can tell you:

 

1- DEMOCRACY is the BIGGEST enemy of Pakistan.

 

Remove Democracy and see how Pakistan rises. It is NO LESS than a giant. Democracy is LETHAL to Pakistan. It is OBVIOUSLY a STUPID system. Where the vote of a scholar is equal to the vote of an illiterate punk and sweeper.

 

The Pakistani NATION as a whole is illiterate and stupid. Whatever progress and capability you see in Pakistan is the work of less than 2% of its nation who are educated and well armed with knowledge. Until recently they have been loving their country and have been loyal. ONLY because this is a homeland and home ground that is a strong hold for Muslims. But now with democracy coming back, the hopes are fading out fast. The brain drain is fast in Pakistan now.

 

If we get the military rule back NOW, you will see a different country.

 


Thatz it,a wide range of thoughts.Now its your turn to share your thoughts ..Good day to all.

Muslims hate Jews??????????

 

In a display of crass insensitivity as well as an enduring sign that the government continues to pander to the politics of the Muslim-Jew divide, minister of state for external affairs E Ahamed did not mention the Nariman House attack in his statement to the UN Security Council last week. And this from an India which officially maintains that terror has no religion and all victims are equal. But was Ahamed’s omission of the Jewish house in his speech a function of the utterly improbable relationship that India enjoys with Israel or was it a function of the fact that the government didn’t want to “anger” Muslims by sympathising with the Jews. Sources said it could be both.[more..]

 

What a load of bullshit..Aren’t Jews human beings..And who the hell told the government that all muslims hate Jews uh?It is a fact that s some muslims who hate Jews ,some for a reason,some for no reason at all..The same hold true viceversa..But it is portrayed as if Jews and Muslims are enemies for eternity.And sadly some muslims/jews add  oil to this fire by stereotyping the other group.

 

 

Wonder if they really knew what Judaism and Zionism really meant.. In the words of Rabbi Weiss, Associate Rabbi at Neturei Karta International and Lecturer on Zionism, Judaism is a Godliness, Zionism is materialism. Zionists try to clothe their materialism in the cloth of religion, but it is false and criminal.  I am not to comment on Zionism as it is too complicated an issue.Not all Jews are Zionists.Original orthodox Jews are against Zionism.Even in case of hating a Zionist,I think it is never ending vicious cycle.The whole episode of God’s promised land,people who lived there fighting back etc etc etc..Its been six decades..I hope and pray that people learn to live in peace and co-operation,rather than killing 5 Jews and getting 50 Palastenians killed..

 

 

Moreover,I have seen some muslims hating Jews (remember,the viceversa too happens) for no reason.I hope the realize their mistake as it is not right for a Muslim  tp dislike others for their religion or race or other factors.To a Muslim, religious belief must come out of a person’s free choice, as God has also commanded not to use any kind of coercion in the matter of religion:

 

 

  • Let there be no compulsion in religion, truth stands out clear from error.(Al-Baqarah 2:256)

 

It is the conviction of a religion’s adherents, not the compulsion they can impose on others, that establishes its moral force on earth. This was a principle evident in the life and practice of the Prophet Muhammed peace be on him) as well as the Constitution of Madinah which he drew up with the multi-religious community of Madinah.This document guaranteed the freedom of worship to all religious communities. This was the spirit of the Qur’an that shines into the hearts of all its perceptive readers: the spirit of tolerance and understanding. Allah says in the Qur’an that He has made people into nations and tribes so that they can know and deal with each other in an equal temper of kindness and generosity:

 

  • O humankind! We created you from a single pair of a male and female, and made you into nations and tribes, that you may know and deal with each other in kindness (not that you may despise each other). Verily the most honored of you in the sight of God (is he who is) the most righteous of you, and God is Knower, Aware. (Al-Hujurat 49:13)

The above verse emphasizes the point that in Islam there is no place for intolerance, prejudice, or bigotry based on color, race, nationality or any such considerations. This all-encompassing tolerance of Islam applies to all elements of life and all affairs of Muslims.

 

The Muslim’s acceptance of the Jews and Christians (referred to in the Qur’an as People of the Book) as authentic religious communities is made clear:

  • And dispute not with the People of the Book, except with means better (than mere disputation), unless it be with those of them who inflict wrong and injury. (Al-`Ankabut 29:46).

This verse tells Muslims that they should take all measures to avoid dispute, anger or other negative feelings between themselves and others.

 

What we see today is something political and religion has nothing to do with it. It is a shame that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict has brought what was a centuries-long peaceful coexistence and appreciation of one another’s faiths between Jews and Muslims to an end. Needless to say, not all Muslims make this unfortunate tie-in, though many do.When a Muslim points fingers at a Jewish person just because they are Jewish, that Muslim is being hypocritical. We have issues when others point fingers at us saying “You guys flew planes into WTC and crashed it”.. Stereotyping will do no good in the long run. It wasn’t the entire race of Jews who made Israel, it was a group people who happened to have the Jewish faith.

 

Whatever,I wish Mr Ahmed hadn’t behaved immature and instead,He should have visited and consoled the relatives of those Jews who passed away in Mumbai terror attacks.That would have made a lot of difference and would have sparked some debates in the positive direction and helped to erase the stereotyping and prejudice among communities..but alaas,nobody is interested in uniting people..Its all the ‘Divide and Rule’ drama..All they want to to keep up the ‘hate’ spirit.Jews or Jains or Buddhists are Muslims,they are just human beings,with the same colour of blood running inside you and me.I apologize to those Jews on my community’s behalf and I pray that your relatives’ souls rest in peace and may you be able to come out of the sorrow as soon as possible..

 

Good day to all..
 

P.S:

A quote

 

Let me ask you this: If a lot of foreigners moved into your country and then, instead of living peacefully among you, took over the government, forced you out of your homes, cut most of the water going to you, gave you no voice in the government, searched you whenever you entered a house of worship, humiliated you in numerous ways, threatened you with guns and tanks, and so on, wouldn’t you—the original residents—be angry and fight back in any way you could? And if those foreigners who took over happened to be of a different religion than the original residents, would the fighting be because of the religious differences? Possibly, but not necessarily. Remember that in the case of Palestinians, not all of them are Muslims.

 

An intersting interview with Rabbi Weiss, Associate Rabbi at Neturei Karta International and Lecturer on Zionism

Some thoughts on comments on ‘Hindu terrorism”

Hi friends..Sorry for not replying to any comments..I am little ill and hence find it difficult to sit for long..Though I badly feel like writing a new post on latest news,I am not able to do,as lot of reading is not yet done from my part..A quick run ..

  

According to reports, the state police had initially detained five people. After a preliminary probe, two were let off. What came as a shock to investigating officials was that of the three detained, one was a woman, Pragya Singh, aged between 25 and 30 years. Singh is believed to be a former member of the Durga Vahini, the women’s wing of the Vishwa Hindu Parishad.

 

 

After the arrest of a once-fiesty sadhvi with links to saffron groups, the Malegaon bomb blast case has taken another serious turn with the possible involvement of ex-Armymen,one a retired major.

 

Post on my views pushed to a later day..Meanwhile please give me little time of yours and notice the flow of thoughts among people,may it be a minority or majority..In fact,I am having a good laugh reading comments section in TOI ..Sharing a few of the laudable ones . 

 

I seriously doubt if a sadhvi was really involved and all this could be fabricated by UPA. Hindus normally do not indulge in such violence. -**cough cough**  🙂 -Nimmy

 

Thiis all the conspiracy which has been created by congrees and their allaince just to divert the issue from development they are making this kind of unwanted things, if their is hindu terrorist group, why are they bring now in front of the people when the elections are in front, i think UPA is trying to creat sympathy. But they dont know that people are taking them serious this time, their is no hindu terrorist groups,it is just to divert the attention for the people..-hmm..wonder what this person had to say a  few days ago -Nimmy

 

Ridiculous .. Its just the political vendetta of the Congress Govt .It just shows how mean and cheap this Govt can go to satisfy its allies like amar singh and lalu Prasad-hmm..maybe you need to look every incident through these lenses..Neither Congress,not Lallu+team,not BJP is your robinhood..They they crave for is power..Their wiseh breed on our agonies..If India becomes a peaceful and harmonious nation,how will these people play drama.. -Nimmy

 

This is a conspiracy against the Hindu organizations. This is thxe last thing we could have expected from UPA govt. Jai Bharat-Oh yeah,I wonder why there happens a pro-Hindu happening everytime BJP is on weak side..and oh yeah ,hindus alone and nobody else are victims of conspiracies,aren’t they ..lol -Nimmy

 

Its amazing how police make awesome progress in this case but not in the Jaipur, Ahmedabad and Delhi blasts..I wonder why? -oh,so you want all or none cases to be resolved !! 🙂 -Nimmy

 

What we were afraid of has happened. Ethnic cleansing of Hindus by Muslim terrorists and UPA govt’s inability to protect Hindus has led to Hindus taking laws in their hands.-You indeed have issues..I pray people like you ,no matter which religion they belong to,die very soon of leprosy ,before you fill or pour your venom into others hearts duh -Nimmy

 

In India, the police, especially that in a UPA controlled state, would do anything if paid-small correction,”No matter which party rules,police will do anythign for money..I pray to God no instance happens in my life where I need police help or assistance.. -Nimmy

 

Media should be just informatics rather than decisive. Media should not encroach the area of judiciary. We should wait for the outcome because media/party is targeting directly to some national party.-Good that  you felt it now..Better late than never..And yeas,pls tell me what are you doing to do about those racist and venemous words said over half-said news ,days before .A criminal is a criminal,Period..But branding a person as terrorist as soon as they are arrested in suspision alone isn’t fair right?Or is your logic applicable in ‘paricular news’ alone?-Nimmy

  

Ho!.. What a great enthusiasm shown by police when it comes to hindu as a terrorist!– 🙂 lol…No comments..Peace -Nimmy

 

 

My request to all my readers..Please don’t mix religion when it comes to criminals..Neither Congress nor BJP,neither SIMI nor VHP are here to save us ,nor are they our robinhoods..All they intend is to act as a choke-starter and ignite fire in our hearts..The references to ethnic cleansing of hindus/muslims, war on Islam/Hindusim, etc etc are terms intented to mess up our fragile minds and make us pawns to achieve their ultimate political or whatever the hell their intention is.Don’t fall their prey..What our nations need today is you and me holding hands and standing together against these terrorists/criminals..Instead,if we try to find conspiracies and say that “My group doesn’t have violent elements” ,it is not going to lead us anywhere..Instead,it will make our life and our nation a disaster..We have stood up together in times of happiness and worries,lets keep doing that and show these pro- religious/well wishers that, we don’t need them..If we don’t do it today,maybe we can’t do it anyday..Until election is over ,we need to make sure neither we,nor  immediate people are ‘ignited’ by these choke-starters.

 

 

Jai Hind..Peace to all..

“No time to complain, time to be wise”

Complaining will not work. We must develop capabilities to counter negative propaganda. To that end, Muslims are realizing the importance of education. A section of the Muslim leadership is working hard towards this. There is a demand that government provide schools, instead of more police stations.It is time for Muslims to be wise and not reactionary. We need to understand the new, emerging India. This is not being visionary. The point is that even a madrassa education can be of help. One only has to look at successful madrassa graduates, especially those from Falah, Islah, Nadwa and Deoband, to see how they moved on to modern universities and secured jobs.

The government is no longer the sole creator and provider of jobs. The private sector has thrown up opportunities like never before. Here the scope for discrimination and biases is minimal. When an India of opportunities seems to be round the corner, it is futile for educated Muslim youth to indulge in mindless violence and miss the bus of progress and development.

 

 

 

 

This article seemed to be a balanced one..I believe its high time that muslims come out of their shells and stop mourning over Islamic history and complain over administrative flaws ,and instead try to move ahead on thier own..When a muslim say “I face discrimination”, I find it lame..Who on earth doesn’t face discrimination? The black face discrimination over the white,the poor over the rich,the educated over the illiterate,the lower caste over the higher caste..Its all there around the world.Rather than complaining about it,we need to look into solutions and work it out ourselves.

 

 

I am not being communal ,i am just trying to see things from my part.Muslims as a whole ,have lot of resources ,in all forms, and if they wish and try hard, in no time, they can make it to the top..Having said that almost all the elite educated and financially-sound muslims left for Pakistan during 1947,and all that was left were poor ones, its great that we still enjoy the current position as of today..I have lived in a few Muslim countries and I can say it loud and clear that life is best in India, where we can practice our faith with all freedom,we learn to respect and accommodate others and learn to move along each other ,learn to celebrate and mourn and feel compassionate for people around us irrespective of caste, color and creed, atleast to a major extent..

 

 

I come from a place where we have a temple ,a church and a mosque in the vicinity of my house..The masjid shares its wall with a hindu family,and for that sole reason alone,the Azan(call for prayer) is not said loud,as usually done through a loudspeaker as not to cause disturbance to them..In the temple, almost all of us (even during our late teens) used to visit temple, just for the sake to grabbing some sandal paste..The priest knew us,as we are from the very same locality,and he’ld smile and give us some sandal paste as soon as we enter..I remember the first time I went there..Me and my cousin had no idea of what to do and we were so afraid of being recognized as non-hindu..We observed people walking around temple and tried to do the same way..And finally when we stood near the deity with folded hands ,waiting for ‘prasad’ in banana leaf,the priest said,’Oh,you want sandal paste’ 🙂 It was a few years ago. Still it remains as fresh as it happened yesterday. Same way,our masjid used to have non muslims listening to speeches on fridays..and everybody were free to visit the church anytime.. I am afraid, such level of tolerance from both sides cannot be seen today.I don’t see any of my cousins today interested in going to temple..I don’t see any non muslim interested in listening to sermons in masjids..When and why did the whole spirit fade away..?

 

 

Educated muslims can do lot of wonders..I still hold the strong belief that ‘terrorists’ are made out of circumstances.. If a person if rightly educated and spiritually informed-the right way, no person will bother to go and blast bombs every now and then..I wonder when will people wake up and see things for themselves and understand that the whole Islamic terrorism and Hindu terrorism have nothing to do with religion ,but that people with vested interests are making use of people and religion and the whole world is dancing to their tunes..Unless we wake up and fight for ourselves and our kids, nothing good is going to happen..

 

 

If Muslims bother to pay Zakat properly, I guess a major portion of the community will benefit from it..But I doubt how many of them pay Zakat correctly.. The rule is to pay 2.5% on annual savings,on gold above 85 grams and like..If zakat was being distributed to deserved people, I believe things can take a change in the right direction. Lot of financially sound muslims can afford to educate children from the other side,lot of muslim entrepreneurs can manage to accommodate jobless muslims guys/gals..Overall,I believe self introspection within the community and working out solution will make lot of difference, in the right direction..

 

 

Its high time muslims stop looking at politicians to do something for them..Aren’t we capable of doing it ourselves.I am not ranting about making a society aloof from the rest..But if the is a sincere try,from all sides ,we need no reservation,no appeasement(if there had been any literal and practical muslim appeasement,i believe muslims would have become Tata’s and Birla’s long time back.What we see and hear is paper appeasement). As far I see it,it is a propaganda to blame muslims of being conspiracy makers and against administration. .Me as a muslim appreciate what the government and administration is doing for me.. By believeing in the said propaganda, people are trying to sideline themselves.. By doing so, we are doing more harm to ourselves.. Just for instance, alongside with protesting for rights of  accused students ,who are jailed labeled terrorists, why not empathize PUBLICLY for the policeman who died then..When protesting against Danish cartoons,why not talk against M F Hussain who hurts people’s sentiments..I believe that such small acts of goodness will do wonders in building mutual confidence.. Afterall, we all care for each other right?

 

 

Crooked people are trying and winning over their divide ‘n’ rule plan..They want to divide our nation in the name of infinite factors..I strongly believe that both jihadists and Dal guys are just pawns dancing to the tunes of these people behind the scene. No real follower of religion can rape a nun or blast kids into pieces. I wish all of us, and especially Muslims doesn’t fall their prey. Rather than pointing fingers, look into yourself and ask if you, yourself, is right and work on it. When somebody questions you, rather than finding fault with it and getting offended ,reply them the way your religion asks you to..

That was a long rant..Sorry..

 

Good day to all..

 

P.S

I forgot to mention that even to this day,the assistant in temple,an old lady,comes to our home everyday to pick flowers for the rituals..And deep inside,for no reason,I feel so happy about it..
