Letter to Indians
1. Some Muslims
in India celebrate Pakistan's win in a cricket match over India
by distributing sweets. Outrageous
. How can any one do this???
2. Some Muslims in India do not like to sing Vandemataram and
Janaganamana treating it un-Islamic. Outrageous
. How can
one behave like this???
3. Some Muslims in India support Bin Laden when he has already
declared India as enemy. Outrageous
. How can any one do
proofs for such incidents are well formulated by many. Because we
are convinced that this behavior is outrageous and since we don't
have a clue why these people are doing like this, we try to seek
answers by addressing the same to "Indian Muslims". So,
there goes a barrage of Open letters seeking immediate answers.
I don't know what makes someone believe that a Muslim would be in
a better position of providing answers!
..Is it because he
is a Muslim?
it is expected to be so, then being followers of Hinduism, we should
also be in a position of answering questions like -
1. Why some
Hindus believe that life of a cow is holier than life of 4 fellow
2. Why some Hindus hooligan around cities on Valentine's Day,
New Year's Eve etc
beating up young girls and boys partying???
3. Why do some Hindus give some outrageous statements (Tagodia
et al.) in the name of religion???
One may think that Apples & Oranges are being compared here.
No, the underlying issue is the same. Just by being a Muslim or
a Hindu one cannot be in a position to answer these questions or
to justify such behavior. Bottom line is
. People perpetrating
these acts are fanatics/traitors. Period. They don't have any religion.
They only use the religion to play around with the sentiments of
the people so that they can implement their hidden agendas.
all this, we conveniently tend to forget the majority (a
sizable one too) of Indian Muslims who echoed Vandemaataram during
the freedom struggle and who continue to do it even today (remember
the new version of Vandemaataram!) with the same fervor. These Muslims
of our country are as patriotic as you and me, if not more.
Generalization of an entire community based on the behavior of a
few is the biggest mistake one can make.
Oxford dictionary of English defines 'Patriotism' as "Love
of or zealous devotion to one's country". I don't think the
more I hate all the people of Pakistan the more I am considered
patriotic. Patriotism should be a measure dependent on how much
we love our country and how much we serve the good cause of our
motherland instead on how much we hate the people of Pakistan.
I fill a dialogue with all filth but ultimately direct it towards
the people of Pakistan, will it be instantly transformed into a
patriotic dialogue?!. Filth is Filth
don't care the reason why the Government took the decision of cutting
the scene involving usage of filth in the movie Khadgam.
In the first place, the censor board should have done this prior
the release. Instead, there goes a board official taking objection
with the Govt. cutting the scene with out his permission!!!
have talked to people from Pakistan who sincerely believe that what
their Govt. is doing in India is very bad. But they feel as helpless
as you and me in changing the state's policy. Understand that it
takes a lot of morality for these people to talk about the truth
even though if it is against their patriotism. These are not "Pakistani
.. as mentioned in Khadgam ??!
parties want to stir up hate in order to get votes and to mislead
people so that they will not be asked questions about their failure
in governing properly. Musharaff wants to keep the hate going in
his country so that his seat is safe and along with his ISI can
continue creating mayhem next door. Movie directors and dialogue
writers want to play with the sentiments of the people because that
is an easy way to fill their pockets. But, why are we falling to
Stop 'generalized hate'
said that, I also have a passionate plea (not questions) to all
the Indian Muslims. You need to be more vocal in displaying your
patriotism. Yes, this statement of mine is outrageous. If someone
asks me for proof of my patriotism, I will nearly slap him. But
after all, you need to understand that all the havoc created in
our country is carried out in the name of Islam. A common man (which
also includes Hindu non- fanatic, middle class, educated) is utterly
confused. You will find this confusion and a feeling of mistrust
justified if you look around what's happening daily.
am not suggesting any big things to be done by you. They are simple.
Let me give one example - You can unite and talk to the head of
the mosque you attend. The next time anyone like Bin Laden issues
a fatwa to destroy India, let there be a fatwa issued
the very next day by all the mosques in India asking Indian Muslims
to stand for the protection of our motherland. After this, Will
anyone dare to think of attacking India on the name of religion?
anyone of us dare to question your patriotism???! Think over.
While I am coming up with this, I came across an interesting article.
I hope by now you too read this article, it has experts from a book
written by Dr. Rafiq Zakaria.
Another example illustrating the ills of generalized hate.
