Whatever is being written about Gujarat must be taken with a ton of salt. While I do not deny that a significant number of innocent Hindus and Muslims were killed, reports have been deliberately doctored to give them a anti-Hindu hue.Some of the incidents quoted here on Tehelka have been countered by investigative journalism in the past or its authors (like Arundhati Roy) have retracted their statements or have not been able to prove them when challenged. reproduced below is an excerpt from a recently published book : Lies, Lies and More Lies.The Campaign to Defame Hindu/Indian Nationalism (ISBN 0595435491): page 81 “More recently, the reporting of events in the troubled state of Gujarat are other examples of hyperbole. Before elaborating on specific instances of deception, let me state that we cannot and should not condone the senseless violence that happened there. By the same token we cannot accept the malicious dissemination of falsehoods. Writing about the Gujarat riots, Arundhati Roy (noted novelist) had this to say (Outlook, May6, 2002):“A mob surrounded the house of ex-Congress MP Iqbal Ehsan Jaffri. His phone calls to the director-general of police, the police commissioner, the chief secretary, the additional chief secretary (home) were ignored. The mobile police vans around his house did not intervene. The mob broke into the house. They stripped his daughters and burnt them alive. Then they beheaded Jaffri and dismembered him.” The description is graphic; the veracity of the incident taken almost for granted coming from a writer of Arundhati Roy’s reputation. But, alas, that’s where we make the mistake. Fame and honesty are not interlinked as the following paragraph clearly indicates. Jaffri was killed in the riots but his daughters were neither “stripped” nor “burnt alive”. T.A. Jafri, his son, in a front-page interview titled Nobody knew my father’s house was the target (Asian Age, May 2, Delhi edition), says, “Among my brothers and sisters, I am the only one living in India. And I am the eldest in the family. My sister and brother live in the US. I am 40 years old and I have been born and brought up in Ahmedabad”. So if Ehsan Jaffri had only one daughter (singular) who was safe and sound in the United States, where did Roy get her facts about not one but daughters (plural) being stripped and burnt ? Was it the fantasy of a writer’s mind? Or was it willful deceit aimed at maligning her ideological adversaries? Arundhati Roy did apologise for her mistake in a letter published in Outlook May 27, 2002. Could this have been a genuine mistake, one is tempted to ask? But when such “mistakes” occur periodically, the chances of them being accidental appear remote. They appear to be in fact calculated machinations aimed at achieving a specific goal as the following incident further proves. In the same article, Roy claims: “Last night a friend from Baroda called. Weeping. It took her fifteen minutes to tell me what the matter was. It wasn’t very complicated. Only that Sayeeda, a friend of hers, had been caught by a mob. Only that her stomach had been ripped open and stuffed with burning rags. Only that after she died, someone carved ‘OM’on her forehead”. Disturbed by the thought of such a ghastly act, Balbir Punj (a BJP Member of parliament-Senator) had this matter investigated. In Outlook (Jul 08, 2002) he wrote: “Shocked by this despicable “incident”, I got in touch with the Gujarat government. The police investigations revealed that no such case, involving someone called Sayeeda, had been reported either in urban or rural Baroda. Subsequently, the police sought Roy’s help to identify the victim and seek access to witnesses who could lead them to those guilty of this crime. But the police got no cooperation. Instead, Roy, through her lawyer, replied that the police had no power to issue summons. Why is she hedging behind technical excuses?” So when asked to prove her allegations, Arundhati Roy developed cold feet; definitely not the attitude of a crusader for truth. Similarly you must have read some accounts of what preceded Godhra. There were wild accounts of an altercation between Ram sevaks (Hindu pilgrims) and Muslim stall-owners, and of abduction of a Muslim girl by Ram sevaks. All this emanated on the basis of a fictitious e-mail as revealed by Prem Shankar Jha (Outlook, March 25).”

Congress christian politics

India’s internal affairs are increasingly witnessing an interventionist American nexus. Even as the Supreme Court asks the Union Government to justify giving so-called ‘Dalit Christians’ a share in the quota for Scheduled Castes, it may be instructive to see how US policy has inveigled itself into our domestic discourse, while maintaining severe pressure upon its own Hindu citizens of Indian origin.
 
The manner in which these issues play out is enlightening. Harvard professor Michael Witzel’s supporters in the California textbook battle include two evangelical bodies: Dalit Freedom Network and Dalit Solidarity Forum in the USA. DFN president Joseph D’Souza also heads the All-India Christian Council; he appealed to a US Congressional Committee to get ‘Scheduled Caste’ status for India’s ‘Dalit’ Christians.
 
This utilisation of converts by overseas co-religionists for covert agendas fuels Hindu anger against conversions. The DFN’s mission is to partner Dalits in their “quest for religious freedom” (obviously these are non-Hindu Dalits), and includes upholding the “legacy of Mother Teresa who showed god’s love in word and deed… and to follow the command of Jesus Christ who called us to be ‘the salt of the earth’ and ‘the light of the world’.” Its board of directors includes only two Indians, both Christians: Mr Joseph D’Souza and Mr Kumar Swamy. The rest are white Americans, namely, Ms Melody Divine, a former adviser to anti-Hindu Arizona Congressman Trent Franks; Mr Peter Dance; Mr Bob Beltz, Ms Nanci Ricks, Mr Richard Sweeney, Mr Cliff Young, Mr Ken Heulitt and Mr Gene Kissinger (chairman).
 
The DSF-USA is run by the Rector of St Alban’s Church, Oakland, New Jersey. It works closely with Christian Aid, which sent a fax to the California State Board of Education (SBE) from the Church premises, but tries to conceal the fact that it is a proselytising group. Mr Lars Martin Fosse, a signatory of Prof Witzel’s letter to the SBE, appealed to Mr John Dayal of the All-India Christian Council for assistance in their fight with the Hindu community that is demanding proper representation of its faith in American textbooks. Sure enough, DFN and DSF-USA jumped into the fray.
 
California Parents for the Equalisation of Educational Materials (CAPEEM), which is challenging Prof Witzel’s role as content-review expert in the history-social science textbook review and adoption process, has discovered his deep involvement with evangelical groups like DFN, which can be proven through a trail of e-mails. Prof Witzel was active in erasing information about DFN’s missionary nature on the free Internet encyclopaedia, Wikipedia. DFN director Nanci Ricks said she did not want the agency to be known as a ‘missions’ organisation.
 
CAPEEM learnt Prof Witzel advised DFN how to intervene in the public hearing on the textbook adoption process in California. Here DFN directors misrepresented themselves as a group of Dalits by suppressing their Christian identity. Prof Shiva G Bajpai, the independent expert engaged by the California SBE to debate every Hindu edit/correction with Prof Witzel in a private meeting on January 6, 2006, found that Prof Witzel and his cohorts in the US and India did not want to rectify the depiction of India and Hindu dharma in textbooks.
 
As Witzel and his friends are firmly entrenched in American academia, few established scholars dared challenge their version of Indian history and culture. Prof Bajpai could wrestle more than 75 per cent of the desired changes solely on the basis of his professional acumen and status as the only historian of ancient India in California. Prof Bajpai now believes that winning the war against the demeaning portrayal of India and Hindu dharma necessitates the rise of a new class of academics sensitive to the mission of reclaiming agency over Hindu studies and early Indian history and culture. This also involves cracking the formidable nexus between the establishment academics and publishing industry and media, which has hitherto been virtually immune to criticism and reform.
 
America’s Hindu community has been dissatisfied with the final changes approved in 2006 as these have failed to rectify material errors about Hindu religion, culture and history. After inputs from myriad sources about Prof Witzel’s biases, CAPEEM approached the courts to subpoena him to place on record his letters/e-mail exchanges with textbook publishers about the (textbook revision) Adoption Process; with the California Board; with Stanley Wolpert, James Heitzman, Shiva Bajpai, or Steve Farmer about the adoption process; postings to the Indo-Eurasian Research List; exchanges with third parties (like DFN) about the adoption process; exchanges with racial purist Roger Pearson or anyone associated with the Journal of Indo-European Studies; exchanges with Arun Vajpayee (the mysterious ‘student’ who asked Prof Witzel to stop the acceptance of changes in the textbooks); communications passing on edits/revisions of Hindu groups; transmitting textbooks (or portions) revised as part of the adoption process; exchanges with Harvard University regarding the adoption process; communications about the purpose of the Indo-Eurasian Research List; and so on.
 
CAPEEM believes Prof Witzel’s conduct during the adoption process is central to its case as he (and others) were ‘hostile’ academic advisers and engaged in secret manoeuvres. A full disclosure of the records sought could reveal procedural improprieties by them. While the California Department of Education (CDE) barred Prof Bajpai from any contact with publishers, Prof Witzel enjoyed this freedom.
 
His exchanges with DFN are relevant to show anti-Hindu bias as many of its key figures are unabashedly antagonistic towards Hindu dharma. Prof Kancha Ilaiah, who signed a DFN letter to the CDE, claims he “hate(s) Hinduism” and calls it “a cult of worshipping certain violent figures… Hinduism is basically a spiritual fascist cult”. Prof Witzel’s exchanges with Roger Pearson, in whose journal his article was published, and certain Internet postings also establish deep prejudice.
 
The flip side of the California debate is a misconceived effort to associate American perceptions of India with the fabulous wealth of the Indian-American community, which is “buying protection” in its adopted land through bankrolling candidates for congressional and presidential elections; and the desire of corporate America to invest in India’s blooming economy. This could be the thin edge of the wedge. Any attempt to accord primacy to secular education and employment (Mammon) is counter to the Hindu ethos wherein the hierarchy of values (varnas) ranks mercantile and wealth-generating groups (Vaishya varna) as third, well after spiritual preceptors (Brahmin) and those who uphold the power of the state (Kshatriya).

« ** How India is being Lost** “You leave us alone, don’t divide our people” »** Where’re Human Rights Advocates?
Re: Taslima Nasreen

Where are Arundhati Roy, Romilla Thappar, Teesta Setalvad, Ram Puniyani, Kuldip Nayyar, Dinesh D’Souza, Praful Bidwai, Biju Matthew, John Dayal …human rights advocates? And how about “mother of all human rights advocates”: Sonia Gandhi? Why is she quiet? Is she thinking about words to say which can be called “politically correct”? And what happened to “TEHELKA” ??

These so-called advocates speak only to degrade Hindus? Why don’t they speak against these Muslim fundamentalists who want to behead Taslima? All of these so-called human rights advocates seem to be advocates of anti-Hinduism. When it comes to speak against Muslims or Christians, they are mute.

They wanted movie Parzania and M.F. Hussain’s paintings to be shown because it is against freedom of expression to ban these. Then why they wanted to ban DaVinci Code and Danish comics of Muhammad.  Is that not against freedom of expression too? Why they have these double standards? Who are they trying to fool?

The attack on exiled Bangladeshi writer Taslima Nasreen has exposed deep-rooted hypocrisy with regard to fundamentalist protests against creative freedom in India.

Political condemnation has been not as vocal against the Muslim political party Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen’s (MIM) attack on Bangladeshi writer Taslima Nasreen.

Though she stays in exile from her country in Kolkata, even the Left government had banned one of her books.

Fundamentalism at its worst, ironically elected representatives of India’s democracy saying they may be MLAs but are Muslims first.

Three months ago a fine arts student in Baroda was jailed and his works vandalized by Sangh Parivar activists for painting what they saw as blasphemous images of Hindu deities.

But here’s the difference, the Baroda incident led a nation wide outpouring of outrage at this moral policing by Hindu fundamentalists, as busloads of human rights activists and celebrities converged at the MS University in Baroda to support the student.

In Taslima’s case the activists are either yet to mobilise support for the beleaguered writer and protest against similar attempts at censorship by Muslim activists or don’t feel as strongly as they did for the Baroda student.

Brazenly unapologetic

A day after the MIM an ally of the UPA has been brazenly unapologetic about its attack and the MLAs have been let out on bail in what seems to be tacit support of the state government.

The Congress has been guarded in its reaction uncertain about how strongly they should condemn the act.

”Writers have other subjects to write. Why just religion?” asked Ghulam Nabi Azad, Chief Minister, Jammu & Kashmir.

And the Samajwadi party has gone a step further saying the MLAs were right, not surprising in a party where a minister announced a Rs 50 crore fatwa against a Danish cartoonist for allegedly blasphemous cartoons of Prophet Mohammed.

”I will ask the government to get her visa revoked. She should be thrown out of the country,” said Shahid Aqla, Samajwadi Party.

Many would see this as political doublespeak on issues of freedom of speech and expression but perhaps no one understands the need to clamp down on Muslim radicals better than the Muslim community itself.

”Those who think that their action is justified because she vilified Islam have actually done more harm,” said Shabana Azmi, actor.

Action against perpetrators of such attacks would perhaps set the record straight about secularism, not just lip service to it.

For Secular parties
by jaihind on Oct 27, 2007 05:19 AM |

– Congress / CPI / CPM / DMK / RJD politicians who support minority appeasement to live in Kashmir or any Muslim dominated area with their family for a week without security and see how they are treated.
– Congress / CPI / CPM / DMK / RJD politicians who support minority appeasement attend mosque or madrasa for a week and see how hatred against other religion is preached.
– Congress / CPI / CPM / DMK / RJD politicians who support minority appeasement to stay in any Islamic country and find out what kind of freedom they get. Also they should take their media folks (CNN IBN, Tehelka, NDTV) with them.

These secular parties to get muslim vote is making things worse for our next generation.

Only way to stop them is vote against them and make people aware of their evil intensions.
 What happened in Sabarmati?,
 on Oct 27, 2007 05:15 AM |

EVEN SABARMATI ASHRAM, ABODE OF GANDHI IN HIS ADOPTED TOWM, REFUSED TO GIVE SHERTER TO LOCAL MUSLIMS DURING GUJ 2002. WHY PEDUO MEDIA IS NOT SAYING THAT? OR THEY WERE ALSO INSTRUCTED BY MODI? THIS CLEARLY SHOWS THE GREAT ANGER, UPSET HINDUS FELT AT THAT TIME. I WILL NEVER JUSTIFY KILLING – BE IT A HINDU, OR A MUSLIM. HOWEVER PROBLEM HERE IS, FOR INDIAN PSUEDO MEDIA, KILLING HINDUS IS “OK”. ITS THEIR REACTION TO GODHRA, UTTER CONTEMPT OF THOSE WHO KILLED, WHICH MADE PEOPLE EVEN MORE ANGRY.
 
 
 why not?
 on Oct 27, 2007 05:13 AM |

I completely agree to the fact that the rest of the country including Congress and Tehelka and the so called Secularists are all biased against Hindus.. Not a single reporter or debate questioned the Muslims in the first place as to why they burnt a whole compartment in the first place. You do not ask the punisher why he punished, why not ever blame the people who burnt a whole train in the first place. Mr. Tejpal, I am sorry if you were expecting Accolades for this act of yours. For all you have proved is that Tehelka only wants to focus on the angle which can stir more debate and get more sympathy to the minority. Show me one country where minorities are such pampered but more than that the majorities are hated. If you are a true son of your mother, why dont you show your balls by doing an actual operation and find out why the Train Compartment was burnt in the first place. Why never but in 2002 did Hindus react. And until you do that, why dont you keep that wide hole of yours SHUT
 
 RE:why not?
 on Oct 27, 2007 05:14 AM
Where are all these comentators, when the Train box was burnt alive. I am asking one question. If your siter or mother is in that train box, What are your going to do??? Wont you take revenge? Our country was under foreign rulers since 1200 years, Because you kind of cowardice in that land. If you could have agitated against those culprits, we could have never been in the hands of foreigners. The country is filled with lot of cowardice, who cant even react, if something happen to their sister or mother or wife. They just want food. They dont live for pride

I want to know what was going thro’ the mind of lumpen elements (from Muslim society) when they assembled with rods, lathis, swords at Godhra at moments notice, then attacked unamred passengers (mostly women and children), attacked fire brigade when it came to douse the fire? WAS ONE OF THE THING GOING THRO’ THEIR MIND WAS: WE HAVE SUPPORT OF THE PRESS WHO WILL HANDLE THE SITUATION AFTERWARDS? DID ANYBODY FROM MEDIA EVEN TRY TO TALK TO THEM?

CPIM’s lecture on Secularism: What did CPIM do when some 20 Hindu temples were demolished in West Bengal after Ayodhya episode? It suppressed that news along with Media. Net result is: wherever it happened, Malda, North Bengal districts became strong ground of BJP. WHY NO ACTION WERE TAKEN ON THOSE WHO DESTROYED 20 HINDU TEMPLES IN WEST BENGAL ?(100s in bangladesh – but for comrades distant Cuba is more important than acros the border). PSUEDO SECULARISM HAS BECOME NAKED BECAUSE OF ANTI-HINDU AND MUSLIM PAMPERING POLEMIC……………….ITS PITIABLE STATE.

What did Gandhi do when 250,000 Hindus were murdered in Noakhali? What Gandhi said when 100s were killed, murdered, raped during Mopalla Jehad? Do you know, ALL THESE STARTED BECAUSE OF GANDHI, WHEN HE SUPPORTED KHILAFAT MOVEMENT? Just check the number of riots in many parts of India since then. RSS was founded when Congress could not protect Hindus because they wanted mUslim vote, and Gandhi supported Khilaft.

DOES MEDIA UNDERSTAND ITS CREATING MORE DIVISIVE SOCIETY BY ALWAYS HARPING ON “MUSLIM”?……ANYWAY, HOPE WHEN FUNDOO MEDIA WILL REALISE, IT WILL COMMUNALIZE HINDUS BEYOND CONTROL.

More Congi-lefti stunts like these, the more gujju NRIs like me coming to india on vacation early in December to vote for MODIJI. Thanks to Election Commission for keeping elections in Mid-December. More vacation, more voters, more fun…and more celebration with Modi.

Tehelka expose is full of ubtrutha and managed fake interviews.Not a single person can be identified and convicted.It is a secular conspiracy bu Congress goons and chamchas.If muslims died in Gujrat riots 204 Hindus also died at the hands of moslim mobs.It was a riot between two communities originating from killing of Godhara Hindu victins.

http://offstumped.nationalinterest.in/2007/10/26/the-tehelka-that-was-not/

https://truecongresspolitics.wordpress.com/2007/10/25/truth-about-tehalka/

Tehelka is funded by Congress. Tarun Tejpal’s father is a Punjab Congress State Committee member.
Isn’t it true that Tejpal’s father was a close associate of Arjun Singh?
Isn’t it true that Tejpal and his father were close to Singh when he was Governor of Punjab.
Isn’s it true that Tejpal used to look after the publicity department of Tewari Congress of which Arjun Singh was the president.
Isn’t it true that Manoj Prabhakar agreed to contest Lok Sabha election from South Delhi in the mid-nineties at the instance of Tarun Tejpal?
The latter also used Prabhakar as a weapon to target Indian cricket, though in the end Prabhakar was also found guilty.
Isn’t it true that Tejpal was used by Arjun Singh to launch a campaign against Narsimha Rao?
Isn’t tehelka reporter Mathew Samuel a close associate of Tom Vadakkam, in-charge of the Congress media cell?
Why they didnt investigate any scam related to congress or atleast 1984 rights or godhra train fire?
Is just because congress is behind that Isn’t true that tehalka is supported by congress sonia bofors money and other Xian missionaries?

Prem Shankar Jha, a senior journalist cum Editor, candidly exposed the propaganda that a Muslim girl was abuducted at Godhra Station. It all started as an email campaign a day or two after Godhra incident in the name of a PTI Journalist. When PS Jha met him afterwards, he completely denied that he ever sent that email, or filed that report. QUESTION IS, WHY TEHELKA IS UTTERING THE SAME OLD MYTH ONCE AGAIN.
Is’n true that u supplied girl to rahul and he raped that innocent girl?
https://truecongresspolitics.wordpress.com/2007/10/09/who-is-covering-rahul-gandhi-rape-case/

I would just like to bring to the notice of the editor of this portal as well as the news channel one simple thing. Are you doing this because you have been given money by the opposing party against Narendra Modi? If not, you need to dig into all the events that have happend in the past. Godhra riot was not the first of its kind. Please dig the truth out of those who intiated to kill more than 200 people in the S-6 Boggy of the train. You yourself have mentioned that the boggy had double the capacity of the passengers within when it was lit on fire. A train boggy has a capacity of 72 passengers in sleeper which makes that boggy to have more than 144 people at bare minimum within who were burnt alive. Make your statistics correct before you point fingers at someone. Especially, trying to create a havoc within both the communities after the sand has settled down. My dear friend, please dig the truth of the number of hindus who were also killed during the Godhra riot in each of the cities you have talked about. I am not against any religion but I expect truth especially if it is coming from media. Do not portray single side of the coin and earn hits and revenue, because you are the people who are creating and warming up dead issues and earn more out of it. If you are truthfull to your ownselves and have even a niche of integrity towards the parents who gave birth to you, speak the full truth. Media has the power to create and demolish what they want by their falsehood and truthfullness. Bring the total figure of Hindus who were killed till date in all the riots that have happed since Independence and see which figure is higher, those Hindus who have died till date or those Muslims who have died till date. The dignity of media is falling off its shelves for people who believe in logical thinking and not in your “K” soaps kind of series you show in News as well. If you dare to speak the truth, do the calculations and find the truth. It all happens because of MEDIA’s wrong message that goes to each of the community. STOP PORTRAYING WRONG MESSAGES!!! THE FORTH COMING DISASTERS WILL JUST BE THE CAUSE BECAUSE OF PEOPLE LIKE TEHELKA!!!

THERE IS A LOT MORE TO UNCOVERAs the recording is repeatedly shown, it could be easily noted that they are edited and with lot of mixing.
The terror-film like music superimposed etc.,
with effects of fade, equalizer, doppler, mechanize, echo, reverse,
flanger proves that the recording has been completely manipulated and done in a studio by professional guys.
Production sound mixing has been the complex craft of recording live dialogue and sound effects on the set
during principal production of a motion picture or video and therefore that such effects are captured and recorded
with spy-cameras is questionable.
Video clips, synchronization, its pre-determined arrangement, shooting with specified shooting etc.,
show artificial nature of investigation.
The way in which the past events are mixed up targeting only Modi points to a pre-planned shooting instead of an investigative effort.

Definations of events by Communal Congress and their idiotic followers.

Filed under: Communists, Indian congress, Muslims, Sonia gandhi — Tags: — truecongresspolitics @ 7:47 pm

Congress interpretations of some of the similiar events is as follows –

Sikhs getting slaughered in thousands = A MISTAKE.
Hindus getting killed in Kashmir = Political problem.
Muslims getting killed by a few hundred = Holocaust.
Poor protestors getting shot in WB under Left Govt = Misunderstanding.

Banning Parzania in Gujarat = Communal.
Banning Da Vinci Code and Jo Bole So Nihaal = Secular.

Kargil Attack = Government failure.
Chinese invasion in 1962 = Unfortunate betrayal.

Reservations in every school and college on caste lines = Secular. Reservations in Minority institutions = Communal.

Fake encounters in Gujarat [Sohrabuddin] = BJP Communalism.
Fake encounters under Cong-NCP in Maharashtra [Khwaja Younus] = Police atrocity.

Talking about Hindus and Hinduism appeasment = Communal. Talking about Muslims and Islam = Secular.

BJP freeing 3 terrorists to save 100 Indian hostages = Shameful
Congress freeing 4 militants to save just a life of one daughter of it’s minister in Kashmir [Rubina Sayed] = Natural Political dilemma.

Attack on Parliament = BJP ineptitude. Not hanging Afzal Guru the mastermind despite Supreme Court orders = Humanity and Political dilemma.

BJP questioning Islam = Communal. Congress questioning Lord Rama’s existance = Clerical Error.

Is there any end to Congress and it’s shameless supporters hypocrisy.

How islam and muslims tortured indians / Hindus

A Critical Analysis of ‘Real Islam’. Its People, Culture, Philosophy, and Practices Yesterday and Today.
by: Vernon Richards (Sept 19, 2005)
Comments and suggestions may be directed to Islam_Undressed@yahoo.com 

INDIA – The scale of ‘loss of life’ and ‘social upheaval’ caused by militant Islam may be worse in India than any other land, simply by virtue of the number of individuals involved. By some estimates, over 60 million have died in conflicts with Muslims over the centuries. Jihadists have destroyed all native Hindu, Sikh and Buddhist communities from five of India’s provinces (including North Kashmir, now called Pakistan and Bangladesh). Islam first came into India as a Military force in the year 715 C.E., in the Province of Sindh, but it made inroads into the country proper between 1020 and 1194 after which Mohammedan power became dominant in north India. The people of Kerala had their violent introduction to Islam in the 18th century, when Tipu Sultan, the usurper of the Mysore Principality marched into Kerala attacking the Zamorin Raja of Calicut and began ‘converting’ people to Islam. Tipu went about with a Koran in one hand and a sword in the other giving the subject people of Kerala a choice of accepting Islam or death. Doing this, he marched from Calicut up to Alwaye where he was forced to retreat because of stiff resistance. In 1669 Aurangzeb issued a general order for the destruction of Hindu temples, and it is estimated that about 3000 temples were destroyed and converted into Mosques in the 750 years of Muslim rule in India. During the sultanate and later under Aurangzeb, many hundreds of thousands of Hindus were forcibly converted to Islam. The sentences of criminals and prisoners of war were ruthlessly executed with mercy and allowances only available to individuals embracing Islam. The Jaziya tax was both a heavy financial -burden and a badge of inferiority borne by the Hindu, which also stimulated conversions to Islam. In the 1860s a Muslim cleric in the Punjab region of India launched a murderous jihad initially against Sikhs, and then against all non-Muslim groups. In South India in 1921, jihadists carried out massacres, the forced conversion of Hindus, and the desecration of Hindu temples. The number of casualties over the centuries are at least and order of magnitude greater than suffered by the Jews in the holocaust, and the ongoing conflicts have been key to the economic and social disadvantages of Indian society. Although Indians are an industrious and educated people, the social, political, and economic costs of the ongoing conflicts are the cause of its poor economic performance compared to other industrialized nations.

BANGLADESH – Islamists in this 83 % Muslim country aspire to establish a true “Islamic Republic” much like the Taliban. Members of minority religions have been under constant attack for decades. Some reports indicate Buddhists and Christians were blinded, had fingers cut off, or had hands amputated, while others had iron rods nailed through their legs or abdomen. Women and children have been gang-raped, often in front of their fathers or husbands. Pakistani Muslim soldiers raped 250,000 Bangali women in 1971 after massacring 3 million unarmed civilians. Hundreds of temples were desecrated and statues destroyed with thousands of homes and businesses looted and/or burned. The human rights organization ‘Freedom House’ reports native Hindus have been subject to “rape, torture and killing with the destruction of their cultural and religious identity at the hands of Muslims.”

Who is communal? Congress, Communists or BJP

Filed under: Indian congress, Muslims, Sonia gandhi — Tags: , , , — truecongresspolitics @ 5:47 pm

I love and agree to both of you.It is the quality of Hindu dharma only that it gives regard to others way of worship and tolerates other’s view-piont and allows an open debate for every issue. Similar is not the case of others.

1. There are nearly 52 Muslim countries. Show one Muslim country, which provides Haj subsidy.
2. Show one Muslim country where Hindus are extended the special rights that Muslims are accorded in India?
3. Show one Muslim country, which has a Non-Muslim as its President or Prime Minister.
4. Show one country where the 85% majority craves for the indulgence of the 15% minority.
5. Show one Mullah or Maulvi who has declared a ‘fatwa’ against terrorists.
6. Hindu-majority Maharashtra, Bihar, Kerala, Pondicherry, etc. have in the past elected Muslim as CMs; Can you ever imagine a Hindu becoming the CM of Muslim – majority J&K?
7. Today Hindus are 85%. If Hindus are intolerant, how come Masjids and Madrassas are thriving? How come Muslims are offering Namaz on the road? How come Muslims are proclaiming 5 times a day on loudspeakers that there is no God except Allah?
8. When Hindus gave to Muslims 30% of Bharat for a song, why should Hindus now beg for their sacred places at Ayodhya, Mathura and Kashi?
9. Why temple funds are spent for the welfare of Muslims and Christians, when they are free to spend their money in any way they like?
10. When uniform is made compulsory for school children, why there is no Uniform Civil Code for citizens?
11. In what way, J&K is different from Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu or Uttar Pradesh, to have article 370?
12. Why Gandhiji supported Khilafat Movement (nothing to do with our freedom movement) and what in turn he got?
13. Why Ghandiji objected to the decision of the cabinet and insisted that Somnath Temple should be reconstructed out of public fund, not government funds. When in January 1948 he pressurized Nehru and Patel to carry on renovation of the mosques of Delhi at government expenses?
14. If Muslims & Christians are minorities in Maharashtra, UP, Bihar, etc., are Hindus not minorities in J&K, Mizoram, Nagaland, Arunachal Pradesh, Meghalaya etc? Why are Hindus denied minority rights in these states?
15. Do you admit that Hindus have problems that need to be recognized? Or do you think that those who call themselves Hindus are themselves the problem?
16. Why post-Godhra is blown out proportion, when no one talks of the ethnic cleansing of 4 lakh Hindus from Kashmir?
17. In 1947, when India was partitioned, the Hindu population in Pakistan was about 24%. Today it is not even 1%. In 1947, the Hindu population in East Pakistan (now Bangladesh) was 30%. Today it is about 7%. What happened to the missing Hindus? Do Hindus have human rights?
18. In contrast, in India, Muslim population has gone up from 10.4% in 1951 to about 14% today; whereas Hindu population has come down from 87.2% in 1951 to 85% in 1991. Do you still think that Hindus are fundamentalists?
19. Do you consider that – Sanskrit is communal and Urdu is secular, Mandir is Communal and Masjid is Secular, Sadhu is Communal and Iman is Secular, BJP is communal and Muslim league is Secular, Dr. Praveen Bhai Togadia is ANTI-NATIONAL and Bhukari is Secular, Vande Matharam is communal and Allah-O-Akbar is secular, Shriman is communal and Mian is secular, Hinduism is Communal and Islam is Secular, Hindutva is communal and Jihadism is secular, and at last, Bharat is communal and Italy is Secular?
20. When Christian and Muslim schools can teach Bible and Quran, Why Hindus cannot teach Gita or Ramayan?
21. Abdul Rehman Antuley was made a trustee of the famous Siddhi Vinayak Temple in Prabhadevi, Mumbai Can a Hindu – say Mulayam or Laloo – ever become a trustee of a Masjid or Madrassa?
22. Dr. Praveenbhai Togadia has been arrested many time on flimsy grounds, has the Shahi Imam of Jama Masjid, Delhi, Ahmed Bhukari been arrested for claiming to be an ISI agent and advocating further partition of Bharat?
23. When Haj pilgrims are given subsidy, why Hindu pilgrims to Amarnath, Sabarimalai & Kailash Mansarovar are taxed?
24. Afzal Guru,attacker on Parliament,isnot being put to hanging inspite of repeated otders of supreme court?Could he be spared in any muslim or christian country for the same crime? No terrorist has yet been hanged.

Out Look Story on Gujarat by Saba NaqvI Bhaumik

Out Look Story on Gujarat

The Long and Shorts of It

The lads in khaki knickers are once again among the first to offer relief to the calamity-struck

Saba NaqvI Bhaumik

Every year, the rss organises Bharat Mata pujas on Republic Day. This year too, on January 26, all the shakhas in Gujarat were in full uniform. The bhagwa-dhwaj—the rss flag—had been saluted and Bharat Mata invoked. Suddenly, Mother Earth shook and rumbled. As calamity struck Gujarat, the men and boys in khaki shorts swung into action.

Across Gujarat, the cadres were the saviours. Even as the state machinery went comatose in the first two days after thequake, the cadre-based machinery of the Sangh fanned out through the state. Approximately 35,000 rss members in uniform were pressed into service. In addition, there were thousands of Sangh sympathisers like doctors, engineers, traders, contractors and other middle-class professionals whose services were tapped.

Take the example of Hitesh Vyas, the mukhya shikshak of the Vastrapur Nagar shakha, Ahmedabad. The shakha had just completed the Bharat Mata puja when at 8.45 am, the quake brought down one block of the 10-storey Mansi apartment nearby. Vyas and 100 volunteers rushed to the site. A few hours later, eight rss volunteers were involved in a heroic rescue effort: 30 persons trapped in another wing of the Mansi complex were rescued with the help of a rope from a window on the 6th floor.

For the next week, the cadres set up camp outside the complex. The manner in which they functioned is typical of rss mobilisation. Jayanti Panchal, who claimed to represent both the rss and the local Lions Club, took charge as project coordinator. Another local resident, Dhaval Chandora, donated the services of hydraulic cranes. Diesel to run the cranes was bought with Rs 23,000 raised locally. And the rss lads were always there to rush first aid, clear the rubble and provide security.

Similar scenes were repeated in all the collapsed multi-storeys across Ahmedabad and Bhuj, where the operation to find survivors and the dead went on for nearly a week. Says Panchal: “Whenever we hear of a calamity, rss people reach out at their own cost.” Adds Vyas: “In Gujarat, the rss is always seen as an organisation committed to public service.”

Ahmedabad’s collector K. Srinivas agrees: “This is an old tradition in the rss. To be the first at any disaster site: floods, cyclone, drought and now quake.”

In Kutch too, the rss was the first to reach the affected areas. At Anjar, a town in ruins, the rss was present much before the army and took the lead in finding survivors and fishing out the dead. In rural Ratnal, again the rss played saviour. Arvind Chaudhary, an rss volunteer, says that 30 cadre members are here to take care of around 40 remote villages. “Where is the government?” he asks. “Not a single government official has visited Ratnal days after the quake though 400 deaths are reported here.”

Even as the rss does fantastic work in the aftermath of the quake, it is also rushing to take credit for it. Mukund Rao Deobhankar, prachar pramukh of the Gujarat rss, distributes photos of the cadres doing relief work. Says he: “We are the biggest ngo in the world. In Gujarat certainly, we are the biggest voluntary organisation.”

The rss is in fact openly positioning itself to be one of the major beneficiaries of the massive amounts of aid which is pouring in. With a bjp government in place, and with the rss having public support in Gujarat, Sangh-backed ngos will undoubtedly garner a large chunk of the funds earmarked for relief and rehabilitation. Deobhankar has prepared a list of what the cadres have already achieved: set up 53 mobile dispensaries, fed over 50,000 people, brought out over 4,000 bodies, found over 1,000 survivors and so on.

RSS general secretary H.V. Seshadri has been camping in the state for some days now. Last year, Seshadri had turned down the post of sarsanghchalak, citing his failing health as the reason. But frail health did not deter Seshadri from touring every major town that has been devastated in Kutch. And he did so much before many bjp leaders had the courage to do so. And unlike the bjp netas who flew in and out like vips, Seshadri has done most of the journey by road. There’s little doubt the rss has come to the aid of the people of Gujarat. What takes away from it is that it has also used the tragedy as a PR exercise.
