What do we call people who do not learn from past or refuse to learn from past? What are the reasons for reticence and nonchalant attitude on part of Indian (Hindu) academia or journalists (though this later group was exposed again with tapes of Barkha Dutt and Vir Sanghvi) towards Islamic extremism? Or is it the belief that all religions are same and Islamic extremism is just reactionary to non existent Hindu-RSS fascism thus, if we are nice and accommodative to Muslims aspirations (it never occurs to the proponents of this view that Islam subjugating every other is Muslims ultimate aspiration) Islamic extremism just fades away? Or is it the belief that terrorism has no religion? Or is it cognitive dissonance with respect to Islam being fascist?
Two years are over since Mumbai shootings and the terrorist who was caught is still under trial. Of course law takes its time if at all it is allowed to take its course. But this is not the point. For some reason, arguments against the terrorists behind 26/11 (as it is called by media jokers) have been made public. The headline, Zee News, reads '26/11 was planned for a separate Muslim state'. Beneath this, it is mentioned:
Pakistani terrorist Ajmal Kasab and his companions were instructed by their Lashkar-e-Toiba handlers on telephone to hold as many hostages as possible during the 26/11 terror attacks to demand from the Indian government the creation of a "separate state for Muslims"........
.....He said LeT handlers had also advised the attackers to identify themselves as Indian Muslims belonging to Indian Mujahideen and hide that they had come from Pakistan......What should be inferred from these statements? Many years back, members of SIMI, a banned Islamic outfit, were caught with documents outlining plans for creation of Mughalistan. If this looks like crazy statement for some, it is because of their ignorance and misinformation they are fed with or even disinformation. But facts of intentions and ambitions of islamists are real.
The group of secualrs, liberals, marxist-leftists, anti nationals and Hindu haters will try to portray this (creation of separate state for Muslims) as reactionary to victim-hood of Muslims citing Gujarat and Babri Masjid there by shifting entire blame to non existent Hindu fascism. For years, these people are engaged in white washing history of this land under barbaric Islamic rule and presenting it as beneficial and at the same time never looking in to what Islamic Religious doctrines say. These people conveniently blew up the magnitude of Gujarat crisis of 2002 and even forgetting the fact that trigger was Islamic terrorism itself.
But what reasons they will give to the fact that Kashmir could not be integrated even after 60 years? What reasons any one can give to genocides and atrocities perpetuated by Islam and its dutiful followers for 1400 years, whether in India or anywhere? Most importantly what reasons these pseudo intellectuals will give for the way religious minorities are treated in present day Islamic countries and their one way constitutions? For all these, their reply will be throwing abuses and false allegations. They were never the ones to engage in a honest debate.
So, going back to the statement 'creation of a separate state for Muslims', one will understand the nature of this completely when viewed with other available reports; Pakistan Taliban says:
The Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan has declared it is training terrorists to launch an attack on India. The TTP is the Pakistan counterpart of Afghanistan's Taliban and has been blamed for several terror attacks in that country. TTP spokesperson Azam Tariq told this correspondent in a telephone interview that the TTP has vowed to capture "Hindustan". "India is our jageer (domain)," Tariq said, "and we will attack to take possession of it. We are training lots of fighters and suicide bombers who will be used for this purpose."
He added the Taliban would fight a "decisive' battle" in India before proceeding towards the Middle East, presumably to evict Israel from that region. After taking control of Pakistan and Afghanistan, the TTP spokesperson said the Taliban would move towards India.
Tariq said Islamic scriptures have predicted a victory over "non-believers". "For us, whether they are Hindus or Jews, they all are the same. Soon, we will teach India a lesson. India's defeat at the hands of the mujahedeen is written in our religious books," he boasted.To be more precise, Islamic scriptures (Koran and Hadith) envisage the whole world being under Islamic rule. Anyway, why do these terrorists even keep quoting their scriptures in support of their goals and justifications for their murderous acts? This is the crux of present day problem; these Muslims know what their scriptures say and what they demand from them; it is just us who want to deny this to feel safe and to be at peace (cognitive dissonance).
We can even recall Kerala CM making observations recently that one Muslim outfit wants to make Kerala Muslim dominated, this was covered in this blog itself. To read on this and how Media covered this, click here. Or one can read this report mentioning PFI ( which is behind the incident of chopping off hands of a Christian Professor and also the focus of criticism from Kerala CM) boasting of its peaceful efforts, how they are superior and widespread with respect to other Islamic outfits, for making Kerala a Muslim dominant state i.e. through proselytizing or even through acts like love jihad or violent Jihad; if you think this is a statement from crazy Hindu fanatic or to be more precise Muslim hater, one can read how Kerala Church is feeling this heat from this report under the title (appeared in Indian Express or its variant) 'Kerala churches unite over 'existential threat''. One small excerpt:
.....feels that unorganised Christians are facing stiff challenges from other ‘organised forces’....."They convert our people after giving many promises. These persons were sent to Kashmir to fight the Indian army," says the notice distributed before the meeting of the CDU (Christian Democratic Union; a common platform formed by Kerala Churches.)Sure, the report does not mention Islam directly, but it is obvious what they are referring to. These Christian gentlemen even complain that:
Indirectly referring to the attack on Joseph, the notice says "nobody reacts when the hands and legs of Christians are being chopped off." It went on to add "political parties and the ruling class are hunting the Christians and their institutions. They need vote banks. They want the support of the communities whose population graph shows an upward trend."Even here, they are referring to Muslims and various (all) political parties appeasing Muslims by overlooking violence and extremism by Islamic organizations. If this complaint is from Hindus, it will surely be labelled as majoritarian intolerance. This also implies secularism in this country is defined and dictated by numbers from the perspective of winning elections, not by some lofty principles. More evidence for various Islamic outfit's goal to islamize India comes from website of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind (Indian branch of Jamaat-e-Islami):
"If Muslims have faith in the efficacy of Islam, which has been a potent force (we all know what this means for Non Muslims; to know, click here) for the good of mankind throughout the ages (yes, when we say all those things done, their reply will be those who perpetuated those are not Muslims. Then we mention their Prophet and what he did, their reply will be, well...)it is not only the necessary demand of their faith, but also their altruistic duty to propagate its principles, especially at a time when the country is in search of a stable basis for building the edifice of its life."If read properly, it is not difficult to discern their goal: India being ruled under Sharia Law. But they want to do it through preaching to reach their aim. What is evident and clear is their rejection of others, Hindus or Christians or Sikhs or even secular constitution which they want to use it, and are citing it to say they are with in limits of their constitutional rights,as it gives all religions to propagate their beliefs. So 'we use it to our benefit but we will not respect it' is the motto.
These Islamic fascist organizations are never short of 'so much' self righteousness and feelings of superiority and also detesting others and everything that is not Islamic.
But its parent organization Jamaat-e-Islami is not so sure about using only peaceful means as it expresses its imperialistic goal in the interview which appeared in Feb, 1999 issue of a Pakistani magazine (read from here or here). There, they boast about how they reduced the population of Hindus from 15% in 1950s to less than 1% by the year 1999 and explicitly say that terror was a great weapon, as it was used by Mohammad in Saudi Arabia against idolaters or pagans, in converting Hindus. A small excerpt from that interview:
...The portions which now constitute Pakistan had 25% Hindu population before Independence. After Independence, a lot of Hindus migrated to India. Yet after the migration, the Pakistani Hindu population was 15%. Do you know what is the percentage now? It is less than 1%....That terror forced the Hindus who remained in Pakistan to become Muslims. Pure and simple. JI used similar techniques in Punjab and Sindh. Each time a riot breaks out in India, we had used that pretext to strike terror among the Hindus, Christians and Ahmaddiahs. The similar terror will be at the heart of every non-Muslim, both Hindu as well as Christian, in the coming years in the entire of India. (I never really understood how our so called seculars or bollywood heroes, like Aamir Khan, Sharukh Khan or some other Khan, stand and speak for good relations with Pakistan after what Pakistan did to Hindus. Has ever anyone put this question to Kuladeep Nayyar or Khushwant Singh or Praful Bidwai, who shamelessly writes India should give 100s millions of dollars aid to Pakistan, or Ashghar Ali Engineer?).Whatever be the origins of these Islamic organizations, India or outside India, their goal is same i.e. to bring the the world under Islamic rule (making Sharia supreme law). These organizations might differ in means, terror (violent jihad) or peaceful ones (stealth jihad), to achieve their goal which is same for all organizations.
Some people who always deny ambitions of Islam and Muslims might say that these terrorist organizations have differences among themselves. It may be true but it is irrelevant; in fact it is a testimony to the fact that Islam's holy books teach Muslims to subjugate others and to strive to make Islam superior because the commonality of their goals with respect to Non Muslims comes directly from teachings of Koran and Islam's Prophet.
So, above report regarding the intentions of terrorists behind 26/11 can be misleading unless one understands the situation in West Bengal and North East esp. Assam. In Assam 6 districts have become Muslim majority, thanks to illegal immigrants from Bangladesh. In West Bengal, 2 have become Muslim majority according to 2001 census but this number could be 4 districts at present. So Islamists can adopt a strategy of achieving their goal piece by piece or wait until the whole nation sees reversals of demographics. But the whole nation seeing this reversal may not be possible, but it is not impossible too if we look at our politicians, but what kind of nation ours will be. Will it be a stable one? Highly impossible, considering the way Muslims react to each and every incident and also that their demands also get more bold and more aggressive with the above stated aim as their numbers increase.
Islam and Muslims can not co-exist with others on equal terms. If one takes away goal of expansion from Islam, then Islam can not even survive. One just has to do small research, very easy one, of looking at constitutions and practices of all Islamic countries. If one does this and try to find reasons, the answers will be found in Koran and teachings and deeds of Islam's Prophet Mohammad.
It is very very likely that the 26/11 terrorist attacks in Mumbai are meant to make Muslims in India more conscious of their religious obligation which includes more segregation from others by pursuing politics of identity besides striving to bring India under sharia.
