Are we a fanatical secular extremist nation?


            Every time I hear about Pakistan, I am reminded of the frenzied frothing Jihadis who in their love for the adopted Arabic identity wanted to severe their home land and keep a piece to themselves. Thousand years of fanatical Muslim onslaught finally achieved its logical end, not from without but from within. It wasn't some Turkish or Afghan Muslim convert king who wanted an Islamic state drawn out of Bharath but a converted Rajput by name Jinnah who felt greater proximity to the Arabs than his Indic brethren. Indeed, the mind of a convert works in a very strange manner. Overnight they begin to hate their own ancestors, their own history and even their own brethren. Father against Son, Mother against Daughter, nothing is wrong for the convert who wants to appease the ones who influcenced his conversion. After all, it is said in India, the recent convert shouts Allah the loudest. Overnight they stop wearing Indic clothers, stop using their Indic names, stop singing Indic songs and start viewing all Indic dance forms as vulgar and haraam. The Islamic barbarian onslaught on India was not enough to Islamicize all of India, it was not as easy for the Muslims to Islamicize parts of the Indian subcontinent as it was for them to convert our former Zoroastrarian Persian brethren. But Pakistan and Bangladesh did come into existence, fruits of the Islamist labour of allegiance towards the barbarous Arabic desert nomads and tyrants.

           Today in Pakistan, the race is on to prove who is more Islamic and who is more "pure". Wahhabi form of Islam is considered the purest and all other sects like Sufism, Ahmediya, Shias etc are considered haraam. In India a lot of us scoff at the Pakistani strife of ever increasing extremism, intolerance and bigotry. We feel, here in India we are safe from such vile things and that we with our "Secular" credentials are above all that nonsense. Indeed, the race was on in India on who is more "secular" and move away from the Hindu identity of this nation. Even the Hindu identity of the nation was denied and anyone even slightly suggesting that the India of today is made of Hindu, Sikh, Jain, and Buddhist fabric was immediately branded a right-wing activist of worse a member of the RSS/VHP/Bajrang Dal "Sangh Parivar". So what we saw in India and still continue to see on an ever increasing basis is secular extremism to the tune of state secular terrorism in that skewed secularism is being imposed by the Government on the masses. This extremist secularism was so busy in disassociating people from their Hindu/Sikh/Jain/Buddhist identity that it allowed the spawning of the Islamist Kashmir, Christian North East and almost Islamic Kerala problems. Even mere mention of the existence of these problems was enough to pack off the "secular brigade" in a frenzied rabid trance and have the "oppression of minorites" spirit possess them. The media which was supposed to the exorcist for very such situations was found missing. Those who realized the absence of the exorcist and decided to volunteer for the task were branded the devil by the spirit itself and everyone agreed that the spirit was right in its action and the exorcist be damned.

              In this secular extremist environment, the people most hurt were the MAJORITY Hindus/Sikhs/Jains and Sikhs. Indeed, in India democracy is "For the minority, of the minority and by the minority". To the "secular brigade" denouncing everything Hindu and suppressing any semblance of a voice for the silent majority became a "Jihad" and hence for the rest of the course of this article I will term them secular Jihadis, after all the "secular brigade" has great sympathy for the Jihadi cause. To the extent that the secular jihadis work overtime to somehow convey the message that the issue in Kashmir is not an Islamist seperatist movement but one based on the "genuine" feelings of Kashmir who want more jobs, "freedom" and "justice". I just wonder why the many slum dwellers in Chennai do not ask for a seperate nation after all they do not get even a semblance of what the Kashmiris supposedly want and in fact get quite in plenty. It is not without reason that when it comes to per capita income Kashmiris do better than most other states in India because the state is awash with government funds appropriated from other states, money that the Kashmiris did not produce from their state economy. Here the Government wants to play Robin hood but in this case the benefactors are not wronged poor people but a spoilt Islamist population who want the best the Indian state can offer but at the same time owe their allegiance to the Islamist states. And the secular brigade wants to send across the impression that only a minority in Kashmir want freedom and are extremist in their views. Let me be politically incorrect here, nothing could be further from the truth than the secular brigade's views on Kashmir. Let me put it on record, Kashmir issue is an Islamist secessionist movement who took inspiration from the formation of Pakistan and the little resistance from the Hindus in letting go of a good chunk of their territory. The Kashmir problem is as a result of the 2 nation theory to which our supposed nationalist leaders offered token opposition, mostly verbally, but never took any "direct action" to prevent from materializing. A majority of the valley Muslims want independence from India not because of want for "better jobs" and amenities, it is because they think they are different from the rest of the crowd in the nation of India. Being Muslim, they feel they belong to the middle Eastern civilization and not to the Indian nation or of the Indian Muslim tag. A seperate Muslim nation is what they call for. Until the 90's they wanted to be part of that another "pure" nation of Pakistan, but economic chaos and a failed state tag convinced the Kashmiris that they want an Islamic state of their own. Such is the mind of the convert.

        Without doubt, secular extremism is on the rise in India. With their job almost done in Kashmir and with media constantly reporting "alienation and disenchantment due to want of better jobs and economic opportunities" the next job on the hands of the secular brigade is to raise the rouse of the "Hindu extremism". The Hindus naturally do not bite back or issue fatwas and hence are easy target. No secular Jihadi has the cojones to openly challenge fatwas or criticize the Mullahs in India for fear of life and property. No secular Jihadi has the cojones to call the bluff on the Kashmir issue and call the spade a spade. No secular Jihadi has had the cojones to wonder why a major bulk of the Muslim population in India during independence supported partition and went on to create Pakistan. That the Hindus, Jains or Buddhists did not want a religion based nation of their own is too uncomfortable a politically incorrect topic for them to deal with. I just wonder that if India had remained united during independence and if calls for Pakistan had come from the Islamic leaders, would the secular brigade have gone on to term the movement as instigated for the want of "better jobs and economic opportunities"? The secular brigade in India remains intentionally blind to the Islamist secessionist movements across the world from Palestine to Aceh in Indonesia and works hard to ensure the "Islamist secessionist" tag comes nowhere near the Kashmir issue. If it necessitates insulting and heaping allegations on the Indian security forces, so be it, but the Islamic Jihadi is not to be left unsupported. Some secular jihadi members have even had the gall to suggest that the Kashmir problem is a result of the Indian secular high handedness in Kashmir. If this is not cultural and civilizational deracination I am not sure what else is.

        The Hindus of India are a strange lot. Scores of visiting foreigners have ridiculed the Hindus that in spite of being in the majority they are constantly abused and harrassed by the minorities. To add to this Hindu victimization, the secular brigade works overtime to ensure Hindu grievances, fears and ambitions are mocked and made to appear as right wing fascist whines! RSS and VHP/Bajrang Dal are the favourite scapegoats of the secular brigade. The social work and truly secular agenda of these groups is immaterial to the secular brigade. However they have no issue with Dravidian seperatism, anti-Brahmanical stance of the political parties in Tamil Nadu or in UP. They have no issue with the illegal migration from Bangladesh or the anti national activities of the Naxalites. The only public enemy, per them, is Hindu extremism. Narendra Modi can go to hell for his alleged state sponsored pogrom but Dr. Binayak Sen is a national hero. Veer Savarkar is a bigot but Muhammad Iqbal is a saint. Such is the state of secular extremism in India where it is prohibited for a Indian to be openly proud of national heroes like Shivaji, Maharana Pratap, Bappa Rawal, Lachit Bopakhurn, Veer Savarkar etc. Islamic bigots like Tipu and Akbar are called "secular" and the secular brigade flushes with joy when any visiting foreigner is only shown images of Mughal North India as the overall picture of India. Vedic India, Gupta India, Chozha India, Chalukya India all take back seat to the Taj Mahal India. The Danish Islamic cartoons are viewed seriously but MF Hussain is considered a martyr. The banning of islamic minarets in Switzerland is frowned upon but the banning of all other religions in Islamic nations is viewed as normal and even considered as normal. The minaret banning in Europe is considered as a fundamental threat to Indian Muslims but slaughter of Hindus in Bangladesh, Afghanistan and Malaysia is not even given token lip sympathy. In this growing national death dance of secular frenzy, each secular Jihadi see humiliating Hinduism, its leaders and followers as a quick fire strategy to achieve instant success. Baba Ramdev is considered a villain but fatwa issuing bigoted Mullahs are never an issue. The Hindu populace in the meanwhile, in a clueless manner, goes and votes this very secular Jihadi political parties to power. Such is the brainwashing of the masses by the leftist and Congress inspired secular Jihadis that even the BJP is increasingly inching towards minority appeasement to achieve some semblance of a decent results in national elections.

          As minorities grow in number and the Hindu religion shrinks in size the day is not far off when Hindus will have to struggle for their own Israel. The North East is lost to Christians who want many parts of that region for Christ! The rest of North East is already occupied by illegal migrants from Bangladesh. Kashmir and Kerala have long been a lost cause. Many parts of Central India is almost under the control of naxalites and Tamil Nadu has long been lost to Dravidian seperatism. Perhaps in the future, pockets of Hindus in Gujarat, Maharashtra and Karnataka may raise their own struggle for a Israel type Hindu nation. But rest assured that the secular brigade will be waiting with its fangs and claws ready and plot its downfall.
