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.

Communist party seeks more Hajj quota

Srinagar: The CPI (M) State Secretary, Muhammad Yousuf Tarigami, has appealed the Central Haj Committee to make efforts for enhancing the Haj quota for J&K State, so that all the left out intending pilgrims are accommodated. In a statement issued today, Tarigami said that as a Muslim majority state, J&K deserves additional Haj quota as the present allocation is not in proportion to the population.

Tarigami suggested the State Hajj Committee to take up the case before Central Hajj Committee, Union government and the Saudi authorities, so that maximum number of pilgrims is selected from J&K State. He also suggested that there should be 10% increase in the annual Haj quota for the state.
