The “Secular Saints” of Congress party and the Media are again trying to start another controversy about the most loved whipping boy of Indian Politics Narendra Modi by racking up his statement that he is against any symbol of appeasement which includes Muslim skull cap. What these “Secular Saints” fail to explain is - does wearing a religious symbol of only one particular community make Indian politicians specially hindu politicians secular?
Why in India only hindus have to bear the burden of secularism and prove their secular credentials all the time? Why is it that the “Secular Saints” of media and politics, don’t dare to ask muslims to practice the “secular dharma” in their personal and public life, the way they ask Hindus to practice the same? We never see any Muslim leaders participating in any Hindu religious ceremony let alone wearing a Tilak or accepting Prasad. Have anybody ever seen any Muslim leader participating in Holi, Diwali or Ganesh Chaturthi Utsav wearing a Saffron Anga Vastra or Turban? But no they need not do so, as Muslims are born secular but they demand that others behave as per their whims and fancies. How does it matter if Imam Bukhari asks Muslims not to join Anna Hazare because of Vande Matram, how does it matter that Saudi King while visiting India does not go to Mahatma Gandhi's samadhi, how does it matter if Islam forbids its faithful’s not to offer respect to Hindu culture or deities? It doesn’t matter to this brigade that BSP MP Shafiqur Rahman Barq, walked out of the Lok Sabha as India's national song Vande Mataram began playing, saying that it amounts to worshipping the Motherland & it is incorrect for a true muslim as he can worship only Allah. It also does not matter to them that Kerala ministers of Indian Union Muslim league IUML (allies of "secular Congress party ” ruling Kerala), are refusing to light a lamp to inaugurate public functions saying this Indian tradition is un-Islamic.
Just imagine how Modi would appear in the “Breaking News” and next day's News Papers if he had indeed worn the skull cap. The very media that is questioning his secular credentials today would have written head lines as “Maulana Modi” and that he is playing communal politics and ready to stoop to any level to become PM. Modi is a man who’s secularism is in his heart and deeds to his motherland. Anyone else in his place would have succumbed to the flashing cameras and simply worn the cap. They choose to ignore his dedicated work to improve the economy of Gujarat, but are outraged that he declined to wear a skull cap.
The result of our undefined "secular" culture has become a tool for appeasement of a particular minority community. For Congress & it’s allies like SP, BSP, JD(U), RJD, NCP, DMK, TMC etc. & the LEFT FRONT- Sikhs, Jains, Buddhists etc. are not part of minority community as they don’t vote in block. The whole Indian constitution & even Supreme Court judgments have no value infront of dictates from the Mullahs. Who can forget the Shah Bano case – which was the greatest example of travesty of natural justice in a modern secular democracy? How can a secular country spent tax payers money only for religious pilgrimage of one particular community?? Haj houses have been built in every corner of the country, subsidy on airfare is given, every send off & return is attended by a political leader in every airport of the country. But not even a proper road & shelter on the way in JK for Amarnath pilgrims as it will endanger environment. Last year JK Govt. (coalition of NC & Congress) has even withdrawn the little state support given on food & diesel etc. to Amarnath pilgrimage on their way. But none of these “Secular Saints” raised a hue & cry. Think of the same, had it been done for Haj. Dussehra, Hanuman Jayanti & Ganesh Chaturthi processions can’t cross muslim majority areas, as muslims will complain about breaking peace in their area by loud noise & gatherings. But Hindus will have to hear the prayers from mosque 5 times a day on loudspeakers (strangely even Indonesia, the country with the largest muslim population doesn’t allow prayer on loudspeakers) because India is a secular country. Riots will occur in Azad Maidan in Mumbai if illegal migrants get killed due to their fight for encroachment on tribal land in Assam or bomb blasts are justified in Bodhgaya as muslims are killed in Myanmar violence. But if a hindu is killed or converted live on TV in Pakistan/Bangladesh, no hindu should even utter a word , since hindus are secular & this is Pakistan's internal matter. Crores of Bangladeshi muslims are allowed to settle in all states of India, but India Govt. has no time to think of Kashmiri Pandits, who have been systematically thrown out of their ancestral land of thousands of years. Congress joins hand with Muslim league, MQM, AIUDF etc. to win election after election, gave article 370, massacred thousands of Sikhs in Delhi in 1984, nurtured Masood Madani of Kerela, Owaisi brothers of AP, Abu Azmi in Mumbai, Geelanis in JK, but still Congress is most Secular & as BJP talks about removal of article 370, uniform civil code for all citizens etc., so BJP is most Communal. RJD supremo, Laloo Yadav's only claim to fame apart from the fodder scam and the lawlessness he gifted to Bihar, remains that of a die-hard secularist who got LK Advani arrested. Nitish Kumar, rediscovers his secular credentials by separating from BJP only after getting a shockingly lukewarm response to his state-wide Sewa Yatra and sensing that his bete noire Laloo Yadav had recovered some of his lost ground. Union Home Minister Shinde has given another example of secular governance by issuing a dictate to the police of the country not to arrest “muslim people” unnecessarily for investigating terror cases. Mulayam Singh Yadav has instructed UP Police Chiefs to deploy atleast 3 muslim policeman in every police station in UP. And too top it all the supreme leader of Congress party, Sonia Gandhi refers to muslim voters as the only secular voters of the country and ask for support service of Shahi Imam to get muslim votes in block for Congress. A leader like Narendra Modi, who says for him “Secularism means India First”, who says “Justice for all & appeasement of none”, who says “Religion should not be used as an instrument in our democratic process” is a “Communal” Politician but Digvijaya Singhs, Manish Tiwaris, Mulayams - who use every available opportunity to appease muslims even at the cost of national security like, Samjhauta Express Blast, 26/11 Mumbai blast, Batala House encounter, Afzal Guru case, Ishrat Jahan case & even demoralizes our armed forces & intelligence agencies are “Secular Saints”.
Does the “Secular Saints” know the meaning of secularism? It is separation of religion from state. A secular person or politician can continue to hold his personal religious faith & beliefs, but he doesn't involve religion in matters of governance. They need to remember that India is a secular country, only because it’s 80% population is hindu. Nobody also should try to hide that fact that as long as muslims are in minority in a country, they want secularism to prevail but the moment they become majority, they want a theocratic, shariah practicing Islamic country. Can they show a muslim majority country, which is secular? India had Muslim as President, PM, Chief justice and in many other important posts, only because it’a hindu majority country. Can they show a muslim majority country where a non muslim could ever become a president, a prime minister or a chief justice or even reach one of the highest ranks in armed forces? Why a country, can a non muslim ever become CM in the only muslim majority state in India i.e. Jammu & Kashmir? But the “Secular Saints” will never raise those questions but ask only hindus of this country to practice secularism. Hindu is the only religion who preaches and practices secularism in the true sense and no hindu can be communal unless pushed to the wall as communalism is not in the DNA of Hindus. History proves this fact and therefore, being the largest religion at one time (few centuries ago), it’s survival is at stake today for practicing secularism. The Mullah’s who preach hatred towards other religious faith and belief every Friday and openly encourage people for “Jihad” (hoy war) against “Kefers”(non believers) are all secular, the missioneries who’s only aim in the guise of spreading education & health is religious conversion are all seculars, but if some hindus try to protest or stop them in such activity, they are communal. For these “Secular Saints”- deriding hindu culture, faith and Gods through literature, art etc. are secular freedom of expression but if someone presents facts against muslims, then that’s communal.
Sorry “Secular Saints”, your dangerous & notorious game plan has been exposed & will not work with the electorate this time. My vote will not be for a leader or a party who wears religion on the head.
