Pseudo-Secularism

Hindu dharma is implicitly at odds with monotheistic intolerance. What is happening in India is a new historical awakening... Indian intellectuals, who want to be secure in their liberal beliefs, may not understand what is going on. But every other Indian knows precisely what is happening: deep down he knows that a larger response is emerging even if at times this response appears in his eyes to be threatening.

“Appeasement won’t help nation building”-Dr Surendra Jain

Dr Surendra Jain, national secretary of VHP, has strongly criticised the appeasement policy of the government towards minorities. He was speaking at a function organised by J&K unit of Sanskar Bharati in Jammu recently. He termed reservation of 50 per cent seats for Muslims in Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) and move by some other States to grant reservation to Muslims in government jobs, a move that would produce disastrous results. Warning against the setting-up of Islamic university in Kashmir, he said its role could be no less than AMU, which sowed the seeds of Partition.

Making a scathing attack on Central Government for granting a clean chit to the so-called moderate faction of Hurriyat Conference, he said how one could term Hurriyat ‘nationalists’, which is responsible for killing of hundreds of Hindus and exodus of lakhs of Kashmiri Pandits from the Valley. Dr Jain also condemned the role of Central Government for granting permission to Hurriyat leaders to visit Pakistan. He alleged that the people responsible for killing of hundreds of Hindus in J&K and for the exodus of lakhs of Kashmiri Pandits are being invited for talks, while the aborigines of the Valley who nourished the land of Kashyap rishi for thousands of years together are being ignored.

Dr Jain said how the Union Government can trust leadership of the conglomerate which led the anti-India demonstration in Kashmir against death sentence to Afzal Khan who is involved in attack on Parliament. Expressing concern over the plight of Hindus in J&K, he said they are presently being treated as second-class citizens and this will be the condition of the majority community throughout India if they don’t rise to the occasion.
