Some morons associated with the Pink Chaddi campaign (well, I must admit that all of them are not morons, in fact some of them are real good people) are claiming (on the facebook group) that Muslim terrorism is the result of Hindutva. Of course, nothing new, we all have got bored with this idiotic claim by now.
If Muslim terrorism was a result of Hindutva, then I guess there are supporters of Veer Savarkar active in Israel, Pakistan, Indonesia, London, Madrid, New York, Chechnya, Xinjiang, and all other places bleeding profusely after being maimed by Muslim terrorists. That’s such an achievement for Veer Savarkar, who had targeted just India for acceptance of his ideology!
After the Mumbai terror attacks, one of the leading sickular ideologues Arundhati Roy had written in a British magazine, claiming that Mumbai attacks must not be seen in isolation and should be linked with Kashmir, Hindutva, Babri Mosque demolition, and general 'atrocities' on Muslims in India.
She got scot free after writing this article, but BJP leaders are chastised for claiming that there was local support for the terror attacks. Is not Arundhati hinting at a local/domestic involvement when she wrote this article?
The secular brigade argues that Muslims in India are persecuted and are ill-treated a lot (well, they surely have some genuine grievances and they have every right to speak about them), and one should look into their complaints when dealing with the issue of Islamic terrorism. They ask us to look at the root cause of terrorism.
Nice. Accepted. One must listen to people who claim they have some grievances, even if they are terrorists.
But who would listen to Hindus?
When some Hindu organizations were accused and people like Sadhvi Pragya arrested for terrorist activities, the same secular brigade bayed for her blood. No one cared to listen to her grievances. No trial, no analysis, only verdict – guilty, punish her. Why should the grievances of people like Sadhvi not be listened to?
Let the seculars also organize some seminar on persecution of Kashmiri pundits, just as they discuss with passion the problems of Palestinian Muslims.
Let the seculars also discuss and analyze the genocide of Hindus (how Hindu population dwindled alarmingly in Pakistan and Bangladesh) just as they claim Muslims are being massacred.
Let the seculars also listen to Hindu scholars when they try to explain what some of the misquoted shlokas mean just as they give platform to Mullahs to defend the verses of Quran.
I don’t know whether Sadhvi is innocent or guilty. But if the Islamic terrorism can inspire seculars to take a look at Mulsim grievances, Sadhvi’s case should inspire them to take a look at the Hindu grievances.
