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.

    India’s “Untouchables” Face Violence, Discrimination
    Hillary Mayell
    for National Geographic News

    More than 160 million people in India are considered “Untouchable”—people tainted by their birth into a caste system that deems them impure, less than human.

    Human rights abuses against these people, known as Dalits, are legion. A random sampling of headlines in mainstream Indian newspapers tells their story: “Dalit boy beaten to death for plucking flowers”; “Dalit tortured by cops for three days”; “Dalit ‘witch’ paraded naked in Bihar”; “Dalit killed in lock-up at Kurnool”; “7 Dalits burnt alive in caste clash”; “5 Dalits lynched in Haryana”; “Dalit woman gang-raped, paraded naked”; “Police egged on mob to lynch Dalits”.


  4. “However, one must also take into account that out of the 187 lives that perished, 147 were Muslims.”

    Can you provide a link or reference for this? How can you say something like this without providing any reference? Such lies make your article and site as a whole less credible.

    So the terrorists and shooters hand-picked muslims as their targets? They went into public places and asked who is muslim and kill them? sounds very ridiculous to me. How can someone deliberately target a particular sect in such random shootings?

    Really funny article!


    • Good one!
      Maybe Zaid Hamid can explain it!


      • It wasn’t 147. it was 47, an obvious error [typographic or other]. Regardless, that’s quite a big figure ….. I think references shd be furnished when statistics are reported.


    • I agree. The writer needs to provide evidence to support this incredibly bold claim. It is totally unsubstantiated. Therefore Zain, please provide a source.


  5. India was never a secular country but a hindu country in the garb of secularism.Hindus can never be secular and they hate ISLAM from the core of their heart.We feel it every day here.


  6. I love the style with which this article has been written! 🙂


  7. To one of the comment writers :
    If Hindus generally were not secular in nature, then Muslims would be in pretty bad shape in India.
    Yes, most hindus are uncomfortable with muslims and some even hate them, but despite all that, there is tolerance of muslims living in india.
    That is what secularism is all about. You don’t have to like the Muslims or their ideology and religion to be secular. Just tolerate and appreciate and accept the Muslim when he also acts in a secular manner (for eg : see the muslims in indian film industry and in business and civil services in India.)


  8. Hindus are consciously aware about the presence of Muslims. They donot like most of them. But they never do anything which conveys an hatred to the community. Just visit a few places in Mumbai and they are actually called Mini- Pak…. there are so many Muslims living in that particular zone. Had Hindus been unsecular , you wouldnt have found so many mosques and places built during Mughal Empire so secure.

    Hindus love their culture and at the same time respect the culture of others. They dont force their views on other cultures. The accept and respect.
