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.

BJP sees red over killing of Hindus in J&K

New Delhi, October 11: Condemning the brutal killing of ten Hindus by militants in Jammu and Kashmir, the BJP on Tuesday asked the government to beef up security in the border districts of the state as also probe and foil a ‘deep rooted’ conspiracy to force the Hindu population to flee the border areas.

Expressing shock that neither the devastating earthquake in the region nor the holy month of Ramadan has stopped the terrorist actions, party spokesman Prakash Javadekar alleged at a press conference that the killings were part of a ‘well-orchestrated campaign’ to eliminate those who assist the army and the police in combating insurgency.

“But there is a more sinister motive to such dastardly acts, which is to force Hindu population flee the border areas like the Kashmiri Pandits who were forced to flee the Kashmir Valley 17 years ago,” he said.

The BJP leader demanded that the Centre provide adequate security in the border areas and clamp down heavily on militants besides going deep into the conspiracy to oust Hindus from the region.

In gruesome pre-dawn strikes on Monday, militants, allegedly belonging to pro-Pak Hizbul Mujahideen outfit, killed ten members of two Hindu families by slitting their throats in the state’s Rajouri district.
