Secular India?February 10, 2010
By Zainulabedin Ameer
Secular India has been no stranger to religious-oriented fractures; among others, Muslims and Christians, both, have suffered the scourge of Hindu Fascists/Hindu Zionists. India’s neighbor, and often its scapegoat for violence within, has been no stranger to ethnic disturbances either. However, in recent years, the exception with the latter is that ethnic minorities, particularly Hindus and Christians, remain protected. If there is violence against these minorities, the matter is never hushed up. This is remarkable for a country that is always touted by the West and anti-Pakistan forces as one with a hardliner ideology.
If we look at the recent upheaval that took place in Mumbai, for example, we observed a huge difference in institutional and public reaction; In India, violence broke out against Muslims in the streets. Many Muslim men and women faced insults, and many youth were physically assaulted by mobs. While the Indian media took an aggressive stance that only exacerbated the situation in the streets and did little to uncover any truth, in Pakistan, the feeling was different; the media were placid and awaited input from India as well as the international media. Some voices have been critical of the Pakistani media’s apparent lack of patriotic initiative. However, the people in the streets in Pakistan did not resort to violence, and our Hindu population was unharmed. Isn’t that quite surprising for a nation that is believed to support Talibanisation?
It is understandable that there would be fury in India in the aftermath of the Mumbai carnage. However, one must also take into account that out of the 187 lives that perished, 147 were Muslims. Shouldn’t Muslims back home in Pakistan have been more irate about this, particularly when reports began to filter through suggesting that all this had ‘Indian conspiracy’ written all over it?
Yes, conspiracy! Among a plethora of facts that can be furnished that expose the RAW and Indian Fascist/Zionist hand in the Mumbai drama, I will present one that is most glaring: Hemant Karkare was gunned down with 9 mm pistols; he was shot in the back within the first 15 minutes of the Mumbai Mayhem. As opposed to this, the terrorists carried 0.30 mm firearms. It’s hard to believe that the terrorists on the rampage killed Hemant Karkare. To understand why Karkar was killed, we will have to indulge in another discussion. However, it is important to say that it was none other than Karkare who was in pursuit of a fascist Hindu Nexus that was responsible for a series of terrorist attacks in India. These attacks included the gruesome attacks on the Samjhota express as well as the drive against Christians in the town of Orissa. Indeed, to the dismay of many in India, among those involved in these acts were people in strategic positions, such as Colonel Prohit. So, we do have an idea about who all could have gained from Karkare’s death.
Now, let it be known that these are not my own statements or those of any other Pakistani writer. Instead, it is Indian Journalists themselves who have come forth with information about the RSS-RAW-Musad nexus that they suspect staged the Mumbai Drama. Writers such as Amaresh Misra are to be lauded for trying to reveal the truth in times when risks and feelings run high. It is because of writers such as Amaresh along with brave anti-terrorist operatives like Karkare that India manages to hold on to whatever secular threads it has left. One cannot help but fear what could happen should the Indian nuclear arsenal fall into the hands of Hindu fascists/Hindu Zionists. With a solid base formed under the Indian secret service in tandem with Hindu fundamentalists, religious tolerance is low. This is only exacerbated by media support with the exception of a few who dare to speak the truth.
