India’s largest Islamic organization, The Jamiat-Ulama-i-Hind, has come out openly against terrorism in the name of ‘jihad’. Of course, it would be naive to expect any outcome from this, but I see it as a start nonetheless. And if you have already made up your mind to write something in the comments section below, the Andhra government admitted to wrongly arresting 21 Muslim youth in the Hyderabad blasts. More such incidents mentioned at an IBNLive blog. Looking at the rate of conviction, there is surely a problem there. A problem which might even fuel the larger issue. On the subject of tougher terror laws, what use is a bigger gun if you are hitting the wrong targets ? Is it just to create fear in the minds of people who are already fearful ? The ones who have taken the path of terrorism have kind of already gotten rid of fear.
Decoupling the police and the media might help this, as we saw in the Aarushi murder case. The media seriously needs to stop stalking the police when on duty. I don’t mind digging a field full of pits, and providing wrong tips about children falling in them. Self-imposed restraint is supposed to be one of the pillars of free press, but in the age of competitive news, toughler laws might be the only way out.
The most heartening statement I have read in quite some time comes from Maulana Mahmood Madni, a leader of the above organization and a Rajya Sabha MP on the recent ‘Hindu terrorism’ :
“For the last so many years, when terrorism has been linked to Islam to malign Muslims, we have been opposing the association strongly. How now can we resort to a similar tactic and blame another community for terrorism?”
I admire him just for consistency of view, sorely missing all around, in every political party, every religious organization and in most individuals who click on a “Comments” button.
P.S. : Keep the comments civil in case you want a discussion on this topic.
In a completely unexpected move, the BJP has taken serious objection to the use of the word “Hindu terrorists” for the recently arrested Hindu terrorists in the Malegaon and Gujarat mosque blasts. It must be hard to accept for someone who always assumed that terrorists were born with a tattoo on their hand which said “Mera mashab ….. hai”.
Respected Mr. Sinha,
Change the words majority to minority, Hindu to Muslim, and read back the article aloud to everyone.
We finally have our very own Priory Of Sion !
Unknown to Hindus all over the world, the Suryavamsha line (of Rama) hasn’t ended and there are still a few alive who disguise themselves as the Hindu Makkal Katchi. They have lost most of the special powers that Lord Rama had, but to date, they preserve the one special power which makes them all powerful : The power to realize what insults Hindu culture.
And if you are thinking Congress, pseudo-secularists, Muslims, politicians, etc. then that is the reson why you are not a part of the HMK. Because it is none of these. The correct answer is here : Link and Link. For the more curious of you, the dresses in question are here : Link and Link. (For the more curious of you, some more snaps of Mallika Sherawat are here, here and here).
Shriya, since she has to work in the Tamil Film Industry, managed to apologize with some not-so-great-reasoning (which bodes well with the HMK) : Link (and while you are at this link, I would advise you to spend some time reading the comments section in our very own heaven-on-earth, the Rediff Discussion Board). As expected from a Mallika Sherawat, she didn’t care a damn, but again, because she really loses nothing.
