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.

The invention of a Hindu terrorist, Hindu Terrorism

Hindu Terrorist invented
Saurav Basu - ivarta

I am proud to belong to a religion which has taught the world both tolerance and universal acceptance. We believe not only in universal toleration, but we accept all religions as true. I am proud to belong to a nation which has sheltered the persecuted and the refugees of all religions and all nations of the earth. I am proud to tell you that we have gathered in our bosom the purest remnant of the Israelites, who came to Southern India and took refuge with us in the very year in which their holy temple was shattered to pieces by Roman tyranny. I am proud to belong to the religion which has sheltered and is still fostering the remnant of the grand Zoroastrian nation.

I will quote to you, brethren, a few lines from a hymn which I remember to have repeated from my earliest boyhood, which is every day repeated by millions of human beings: “As the different streams having their sources in different places all mingle their water in the sea, so, O Lord, the different paths which men take through different tendencies, various though they appear, crooked or straight, all lead to Thee.” - Swami Vivekananda

The arrest of a Sadhvi and two other Hindus in connection with the Malegaon blasts case makes a case for a very happy Diwali for the “secular brigade”. Hindu extremists, Hindu terrorist, Saffron terror are the new synonyms invented as every big media house makes it a point to keep up with the joneses; never mind that a Kashmiri terrorist always transforms into a militant while there is no place for “Muslim terrorist”, “Islamic fundamentalist”, “Green terror” in the “secular” vocabulary!

This is the most embarrassing revelation against the BJP, is Rajdeep Sardesai”s caustic remark! Sure, but not as embarrassing as the 20 year sentence which was recently given to a former Congress minister from Gujarat, Mohd. Surti who was indicted in the Surat blasts of 1993.

It is not that the ATS has any iron cast case against the Sadhvi. By her own admission, her was at most a peripheral involvement but no one knows about the boundary. A bike sold probably years before is her only connection with the blasts, as of now.

Why would an intelligent terrorist use her own bike to launch a bomb will require stiff reasoning before any court of law?

However, the arrest of the suspects should have answered the paranoid Muslim alarmists and minority terrorist right groups who have been howling incessantly against the police for picking up terror suspects belonging to minority community.

And here is the difference. Not one Hindu organization, not one Hindu leaning intellectual, not one Hindu sympathetic academician, not one Hindu religious leader has come forward in defense of the accused. Contrast with the supposedly secular Mushirul Hasan who makes it a case to actively fund cute students of the Jamia Milia Islamia because they both share a common religious identity, even when it surfaced that the student involved is not a bonafide student of the university and used a fake qualifying certificate to gain admission.

There is more. Not one Hindu group has officially claimed it to be a conspiracy against the majority community, more particularly Hindutva groups. Not one Hindu group has doubted the credentials of the police. Not one Hindu guru has exonerated the accused on her past conduct. Not one Hindu has created communal tension and indulged in rioting to protest the arrest. Not one Hindu citizen of India has obstructed the path of justice. Not one Hindu organization has offered to fund the Sadhvi”s defense. Not one Hindu says they feel threatened by the police actions. Not one Hindu organization has demanded a judicial probe!

Contrast with the arrest of SIMI leaders. Tehelka, the unofficial English language mouthpiece of the SIMI slandered the competency of the police. They pleaded that SIMI”s arguments for Islamicization of India were actually valid! The Shahi Imam threatened Hindus with a second partition and mass violence. Muslim intellectuals and un-convicted terrorist right groups demanded judicial inquiries after the Batla House encounter. In Azamgarh, the martyr Mohan Chand Sharma was denounced as a fake encounter specialist by several local Muslims. On several occasions, local Muslims have prevented arrests of terror suspects by threatening communal violence like in the case of a fanatical preacher Abdul Matin of Varanasi!

It is with a sense of relief that we find the conduct of a national party like BJP in this hour of crisis to be satisfactory which unfortunately cannot be said to be the case for the others. Remember, how Madhani, the man who spent 10 yrs in jail for his involvement in the Coimbatore blasts was wishfully wooed by both the Communists and the Congress in Kerala. Remember, how Bashir”s family, mastermind of the Ahmedabad blasts was consoled by every “secular” party operating in Uttar Pradesh! In stark opposition, the BJP and any of its allied Hindutva organizations have completely disowned the accused. It sends a strong message to every potential Hindu fed up from “green terror” and who believes in taking the law into his own hands that no sympathy can be expected for their misguided actions.

Those same “secular” windbags who rationalize anti Hindu terrorism as a consequence of the eradication of a profound symbol of 16th century Islamic imperialism in 1992, may well discover the roots of Malegaon 2008 in Jaipur, Ahmedabad, Bangalore and Delhi 2008, if not Mumbai 2007, Delhi 2005, Coimbatore 1998, apart from J and K 1989-2008

Within 24 hrs of her arrest, the Sadhvi has become Hindu”s terror feminine face! Everything associated with her is claimed to be untouchable including her religious identity. Dare they render the same [dis]service to the hundreds of Islamic terrorists who have been apprehended by the police!

Recall, the Jayendra Saraswati case in which the “secular” media played such an egregious role in defaming both him, and the Math that the Andhra High Court was compelled to intervene and issue a stern warning to all these agencies of secular terror, for “the amount of disrepute and sacrilege inflicted upon Sri Jayendra Saraswati, as of now, is so enormous that it has hardly any comparables” The learned judge had also regrettably noted, “sad and sorrowful that an institution of such glory that withstood foreign invasions and social revolutions”" over the past 2500 years is virtually targeted and persecuted in an organised manner in an independent country.Not only individuals, but also a section of the institutions, such as the State and the Press, appears to be determined to belittle and besmirch the Peetam.The proponents of human rights, fair play and dignity to the individuals and institutions have maintained stoic silence”

Islam fundamentalism has a dark global totalitarian vision. Muslim extremists freely quote from the Quran, and are warmly applauded by supposedly pious co-religionists. Osama Bin Laden became overnight a pan-Islamic symbol after 9/11. Thousands of Indian Muslims enthusiastically enrolled in the global jehadi fan club, was the frank admission of Burkha Dutt who is arguably one of the most secular journalists around. Yet, a Zakir Naik who applauds Osama and calls USA terrorist Number 1 finds space in India. A Geelani, who has only one desire - the total Islamicization of Kashmir is treated at government expense. The Imam of Azamgarh reassured Bashir”s family after his arrest, “God will do justice and the community will benefit from your son”s sacrifices.” In contrast, it is impossible to even remotely visualize a Hindu guru consoling Pragya Sadhvi”s family!

For the 80 million Hindus who were butchered in the cause of the supposedly lesser Jihad of medieval political expediency, not one counter-terrorist was produced. For the millions of Bengali Hindus who were massacred in the genocide against Hindus in Bangladesh, not one counter-terrorist emerged. Against the Kashmiri genocide, how many Pandits took up guns? Why did they not? Because deep inside every Hindu finds revolting the idea of killing innocents only because the faith they profess is different from their own.

Because they cannot tolerate rationalization of terror against innocents for the sake of avenging the past wrongs. Why did they not convert people from other faiths? Because they actually believe real conversion is not conversion of faith, it is conversion of character. Why did they not retaliate? Because their reformist spirit prevents justification of murder through the morbid philosophy of an “eye for an eye” Why did they not transform into book based fanatics? Because they know, that any holy book which teaches terror against innocents must be disowned!

During the Godhra riots, there were hundreds and thousands of Hindus, who deplored the alleged misdeeds of Modi. The liberal Hindu also swallowed the bait, ignoring the fact that many of the accusations by Star TV like ripping of fetuses are all Anti-Hindu practices, were based on hearsay and actually derived from the eyewitness accounts of Muslim persecution of Hindu-Sikh women in Punjab and East Bengal in the aftermath of partition.

But how many Muslims have unequivocally condemned the terror antics of Mahdani, SIMI, Dawood, Osama and Mullah Omar in the past? When was the last time you saw a letter to the editor by an Indian Muslim on these lines in your daily newspaper? When was the last time you found a Muslim defending America for attacking the bastion of Taliban, or perhaps agree in the Palestine-Israel conflict that excesses have been committed by both sides? How many Muslims publicly condemned the genocide against Hindus in Bangladesh which claimed 3 million lives and counting and perhaps another in Kashmir. How many Muslims blame the Muslims for their fossilized shariat laws and defend Salman Rushdie”s right to free speech and expression. Why is the mind of the Indian Muslim or for that majority of world Muslims a monolith when it comes to espousing retrograde Pan Islamic causes?

While even a young Hindu teenage girl who has yet to read the Ramayana can be found chastizising Rama for betraying Sita and killing Vali; how many Muslims can even question, if not condemn the Prophet assassinating Abu Afak, a 120 year old man who doubted the Quranic revelation and then triggering the same fate for Asma Bin Marwan, a pagan poetess and mother of five children while sleeping with them for having publicly derided the Prophet for his previous action

Why do the Indian media invoke the RSS and the VHP as the countercurrent of Islamic fundamentalism? What commonalities have they discovered between the constitutions of the SIMI and the RSS? Why are they implicated without evidence in every riot, while Islamic miscreants are let off for being supposedly a minority, and mind you not a small one at that! Why is terrorism justified by progressive news channels like NDTV as a naturally corollary for riots. Sometimes, Hindu fundamentalist are charged with raising provocative slogans like Bharat Mata ki jai - if one cant chant the same in India, where to go? In Pakistan or in Bangladesh? Or perhaps Saudi Arabia?

The media”s self censorship is another worry. Just like terror stories involving anti-national activities of Muslims are suppressed or pushed to page 10 backburners; VHP president Praveen Togadia”s outbursts and frustrations must make breaking news but not that of the imam of the Jama Masjid. If Togadia decries Valentine”s day and short skirts he is a conservative Hindu fanatic who wants to Talibanise India, but when the mullahs decide to marry a Muslim girl to his father in law who for the small matter had incidentally raped her and quite gratuitously demand of her to change her relationship with her husband to that of a mother, it is to be regarded only a matter of faith which should be respected in a secular country and instead not be communalized by the Hinduvadis. The secularist modus operandi is to keep infecting the self critical Hindu mind of their axiomatic debauchery for their co-religionists are responsible for all the riots, their co-religionalists have made India unsafe, their co-religionists have created terrorists out of peace loving Mullahs. This should supposedly appease the violent self righteousness of the Muslim mind whose benevolence in turn will keep communal riots at bay.

The ordinary Hindu has invariably internalized the pernicious “secular” conditioning that he is subjected too since the day he is born.

Terror has no religion, never mind that those who blow themselves up in the name of religion all belong to the same religion.

All religions are the same. The RSS and the VHP are the Hindu counterparts of the Taliban although they lack the moral courage of Islam to blow themselves apart in service of their religion. Hindu fundamentalists pose the greatest threat to the integrity and pluralistic culture of India, and if you consider any of their motives justified then it means you are one of them. These Hindu fundamentalists are perverts who don”t know anything about their religion; only secular Marxists have the license to teach you Hinduism - the debased religion which has persecuted women, dalits and adivasis for centuries while Islam is egalitarian never mind its history of persecuting those who disbelieve the Prophet”s revelation, Islam has not felled one temple for religious reasons they will claim, never mind that 80,000 others were smashed supposedly under duress of secular and political compulsions.

Quite unlike the Hindus who persecuted the Buddhists through a Huna king who never converted to Hinduism or a formerly Hindu king who had already converted to islam. Also never mind not a single complaint was ever registered against the great Guptas and their legendary patronization of the heretical Buddhist sects for they had already been indicted for obstructing the march of history by unleashing the woe of feudalism on the Indian proletariat.

Even the terrorist Aurangzeb stands out as a saint in the eyes of these secularists since he had been unfairly slandered by supposedly nationalist historians; never mind that all of them possessed impeccable credentials unlike much of the current crop who are indoctrinated to the deadly Stalinist ideology.

Despite that, Hinduism with its heightened ideals is the religion which is being tormented, at the expense of those which have produced the maximum number of global jihadis. “The secular hate-mongers are pushing Hindus into a difficult corner without a space to be heard. Not a single “mainline” newspaper publishes their views, though any number of assaults on them are a matter of routine. This is creating a grave situation and it”s a warning signal that can be ignored only at the peril of the nation”s great legacy of plurality” , writes Tarun Vijay.

In Hindu mythology, Shumb and Nishumb are the demonic powers, whom superficial killing does not eliminate. Every drop of their blood produces a thousand other similar demons. If the secular media considers Pragya Sadhvi to be such a condemned entity, then beware, or else you will end up producing a thousand other Pragyas.
