One can read the real life story of Gopal Das - a Hindu living in the dist. of 24 Paraganas (north) in West Bengal, how he lost his good fraction of his land to an Islamist in Jihad from the blog: south bengal herald.blogspot.com. This is not the first such case and will not be the last. Earlier, such land grabbings by Islamists from Hindus in rural areas were seen in the district of Murshidabad. Also notice that, this is the same district in which town Deganaga is in, where Muslims resorted to violence on large scale in last September.

Amir Taheri, an Iranian author, points out, "the current consensus among Muslim jurists is that Muslims can live in lands ruled by non-Muslims, provided they use their presence to further the cause of Islam." He quotes Mohammad Ghazzali, the greatest Islamic scholar and second greatest Muslim - next only to Prophet Mohammad, who said that Muslims could live under non-Muslim rule as long as they do not forget that they are Allah's missionaries and, if needed, his soldiers.
Yusuf al-Qaradawi, considered the most influential and popular Islamic scholar in present day Islamic world, writes, "The goal of conquering Rome or the world need not necessarily be pursued by the sword; it can be achieved through demographic growth and steady conversion of the local populations by an army of preachers and teachers who will present Islam in all languages and dialects. But should the peaceful means prove insufficient, physical force can readily be brought to bear." (MEMRI, "special dispatch series, no. 447," Dec. 6, 2002.). Some western fake intellectuals and media credit him as a moderate Muslim.
Or look at these two Koranic verses:
And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and worshipping of others along with Allâh) and (all and every kind of) worship is for Allâh (Alone). But if they cease, let there be no transgression except against Az-Zâlimûn (the polytheists, and wrong-doers, etc.) (Hilali - 2:293)
He it is Who hath sent His messenger with the guidance and the religion of truth, that He may make it conqueror of all religion however much idolaters may be averse. (Pickthall - 61:9)This kind of ambition of world wide domination by Islam has doctrinal warrant and also taps in to more than 1000 years of imperialist undercurrents that have characterized Islamic culture from the very beginning. What can plausibly explain inability of Muslim migrants in Europe and North America to integrate in to main stream society? Why do we do not hear the same problem from Hindus and Chinese who settled in Europe and North America?
Whether Muslims are migrants or original inhabitants in infidel majority nations, there can never be peaceful co-existence; leftist ideologues - wearing mask of historians - claiming Hindus and Muslims living in peace during Muslim rule in India is a blatant lie perpetuated on this country with its consequences being felt by ordinary Hindus.
Muslims always try to create their own sub society by clustering in to one place and then trying to make that place Muslim majority through further immigration and high birth rates. In India, France and UK one can see plenty of such places; in Mumbai such places are called small (ghiddi) Pakistans. This is no coincidence as Islam teaches isolation of Muslims from Non Muslims by prohibiting friendship between Muslims and Non Muslims (here) and teaching that hating infidels is integral part of Islamic faith and one of commands of Allah in Koran (here).
In India, we have seen Muslims using their voting power to create separate districts comprising of Muslim majority e.g. recently (in the year 2005) created district of Mewat in Haryana by Congress Govt.. Once, population of Muslims reach a threshold point, their efforts will be in the direction of forcing out infidels by attacking infidel's property and women; this is what has happened in Deganga. Deganga episode is a prelude to what is to become as a norm unless confronted brutally; Islamists also intended it to be a warning to Hindus if they try to resist their plans of Islamic expansion or Islamization. This kind of instances of encroachments by Muslims on Hindu properties, like the case of Gopal Das, will increase and Hindus can only neglect this kind to their own detriment.
As the demographic profile of areas bordering Bangladesh changed drastically with Muslim immigrants from adjacent Bangladesh, they became a decisive factor in influencing elections. As both political parties in West Bengal are busy in wooing Muslims to their fold, proper administration takes a back seat while giving way to appeasement of Islamists. Police become useless as they were always tools in the hands of politicians. And what about media in West Bengal? less said much better regarding their integrity as they have shown their true color during Deganga episode. Try to recall what happened: Central Govt. with out any request from State Govt. has deployed 300 Army men to contain violence of Muslims under the leadership of Muslim MP (Trinamool Congress) Haji Nurul Islam; even then, Bengali media did neither see the need to report nor investigate later.
Today, it is border areas that are witnessing activities of Jihadists; once Islamization of these border districts is completed, it next spreads to contiguous areas in inland as Koran tells them to do in the following verse 9:123:
O ye who believe! fight the unbelievers who gird you about, and let them find firmness in you: and know that Allah is with those who fear Him. (YUSUFALI)
O ye who believe! Fight those of the disbelievers who are near to you, and let them find harshness in you, and know that Allah is with those who keep their duty (unto Him). (PICKTHAL)
O you who believe! fight those of the unbelievers who are near to you and let them find in you hardness; and know that Allah is with those who guard (against evil). (SHAKIR)
And this is what Ibn Kathir, a classical Islamic scholar and whose work is very popular with Muslims today, says on this verse and its meaning (here):
Allah commands the believers to fight the disbelievers, the closest in area to the Islamic state, then the farthest. This is why the Messenger of Allah started fighting the idolators in the Arabian Peninsula. When he finished with them and Allah gave him control over Makkah, Al-Madinah, At-Ta'if, Yemen, Yamamah, Hajr, Khaybar, Hadramawt and other Arab provinces, and the various Arab tribes entered Islam in large crowds, he then started fighting the People of the Scriptures.
He began preparations to fight the Romans who were the closest in area to the Arabian Peninsula, and as such, had the most right to be called to Islam, especially since they were from the People of the Scriptures. The Prophet marched until he reached Tabuk and went back because of the extreme hardship, little rain and little supplies. This battle occurred on the ninth year after his Hijrah.
In the tenth year, the Messenger of Allah was busy with the Farewell Hajj. The Messenger died eighty-one days after he returned from that Hajj, Allah chose him for what He had prepared for him [in Paradise]. After his death, his executor, friend, and Khalifah, Abu Bakr As-Siddiq, may Allah be pleased with him, became the leader. At that time, the religion came under attack and would have been defeated, if it had not been for the fact that Allah gave the religion firmness through Abu Bakr, who established its basis and made its foundations firm. He brought those who strayed from the religion back to it, and made those who reverted from Islam return. He took the Zakah from the evil people who did not want to pay it, and explained the truth to those who were unaware of it. On behalf of the Prophet , Abu Bakr delivered what he was entrusted with. Then, he started preparing the Islamic armies to fight the Roman cross worshippers, and the Persian fire worshippers.
By the blessing of his mission, Allah opened the lands for him and brought down Caesar and Kisra and those who obeyed them among the servants. Abu Bakr spent their treasures in the cause of Allah, just as the Messenger of Allah had foretold would happen. This mission continued after Abu Bakr at the hands of he whom Abu Bakr chose to be his successor, Al-Faruq, the Martyr of the Mihrab, Abu Hafs, `Umar bin Al-Khattab, may Allah be pleased with him.
With `Umar, Allah humiliated the disbelievers, suppressed the tyrants and hypocrites, and opened the eastern and western parts of the world. The treasures of various countries were brought to `Umar from near and far provinces, and he divided them according to the legitimate and accepted method. `Umar then died as a martyr after he lived a praise worthy life. Then, the Companions among the Muhajirin and Ansar agreed to chose after `Umar, `Uthman bin `Affan, Leader of the faithful and Martyr of the House, may Allah be pleased with him.
During `Uthman's reign, Islam wore its widest garment and Allah's unequivocal proof was established in various parts of the world over the necks of the servants. Islam appeared in the eastern and western parts of the world and Allah's Word was elevated and His religion apparent.
The pure religion reached its deepest aims against Allah's enemies, and whenever Muslims overcame an Ummah, they moved to the next one, and then the next one, crushing the tyranical evil doers. They did this in reverence to Allah's statement
(O you who believe! Fight those of the disbelievers who are close to you,)
Allah said next,
(and let them find harshness in you),
meaning, let the disbelievers find harshness in you against them in battle. The complete believer is he who is kind to his believing brother, and harsh with his disbelieving enemy. Allah said in other Ayah,
(Allah will bring a people whom He will love and they will love Him; humble towards the believers, stern towards the disbelievers...)[5:54],
(Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah. And those who are with him are severe against the disbelievers, and merciful among themselves.)[48:29], and,
(O Prophet! Strive hard against the disbelievers and the hypocrites, and be harsh against them.)[9:73] Allah said,(And know that Allah is with those who have Taqwa),
meaning, fight the disbelievers and trust in Allah knowing that Allah is with you if you fear and obey Him. This was the case in the first three blessed generations of Islam, the best members of this Ummah. Since they were firm on the religion and reached an unsurpassed level of obedience to Allah, they consistently prevailed over their enemies. During that era, victories were abundant, and enemies were ever more in a state of utter loss and degradation. However, after the turmoil began, desires and divisions became prevalent between various Muslim kings, the enemies were eager to attack the outposts of Islam and marched into its territory without much opposition. Then, the Muslim kings were too busy with their enmity for each other. The disbelievers then marched to the capital cities of the Islamic states, after gaining control over many of its areas, in addition to entire Islamic lands.
Verily, ownership of all affairs is with Allah in the beginning and in the end. Whenever a just Muslim king stood up and obeyed Allah's orders, all the while trusting in Allah, Allah helped him regain control over some Muslim lands and took back from the enemy what was compatible to his obedience and support to Allah. We ask Allah to help the Muslims gain control over the forelocks of His disbeliever enemies and to raise high the word of Muslims over all lands. Verily, Allah is Most Generous, Most Giving.
