Clerics And Cohorts Cross Lakshman Rekha

E-mail Print PDF

The sane elements in the society had made appeals to all Indians to observe decorum and respect the judgement of the Lucknow bench of the Allahabad High Court. Promises were made by men who mattered in the realm of religion, law and politics that they would not say or do anything to incite the ignorant masses to resort to violence, irrespective of the tilt in the judgement this way or that.

It must be said that the leaders in various walks of life maintained equanimity of mind for some time post judgement. Perhaps they were slowly absorbing the legal nuances of the bulky pronouncements made by the three honourable judges separately. And then hell broke loose in torrents of unbridled pronouncements made by the Imam of Jama Masjid of Delhi, Mulayam Singh Yadav and some journalists of the bygone era who had almost faded into oblivion.


Imam and politics

The Imam of Jama Masjid, Delhi perhaps loves to swim in political waters more than tending to his religious duties. He termed the judgement as a joke on the minority community. Playing to the gallery the Imam raised his voice to a much higher decibel than was required and said “ Hamein yeh judgement manzoor nahin hai”. (we do not accept this judgement). Well, there was no need to be a rabble rouser and thus incite people against the law of the land. Well, the judges themselves have given 90 days to the parties to the suit to file an appeal in the Supreme Court. So, where is the need to lead the ignorant crowd of Muslims to the hellish fire of agitation that might lead to acts of violence.

Arrogantly the rabble rouser cast doubt on the Supreme Court’s support. He went to the extent of saying that we (Muslims) have lost faith in the judiciary. This was the unkindest cut of all because the Indian Judiciary has maintained the rule of law. Unfortunately the Muslim leaders have been pampered by the government leaders unnecessarily. “Muslims have the first right on the use of national resources” was an uncalled for statement by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh that emboldened the rabble rousers like the Imam of Jama Masjid and the likes of him to cast aspersions on the highest temple of justice, the Supreme Court.

Fortunately many Muslims from all walks of life have asked the said Imam to confine himself to religion and not dabble into politics. However, the heady wine of politics has been tasted by the said Imam and he is not likely to retrace his steps. Provisions of law should be resorted to and he be helped to see reason. Even his brother, Syed Yahya Bukhari has said that the problem is not as big as the Imam is magnifying it to be. Other influential Muslims opined that the common man should be guided to get along in life rather than get involved into legal disputes. Others have opined that here is the golden opportunity to solve the problem rather than go into appeal to the Supreme Court.

Najeeb Jung, vice-chancellor of Jamia Millia university, has shown a progressive attitude by writing an article in a prominent daily newspaper by saying that here is a chance for Hindus and Muslims” to forge new ties”. Many progressive Muslims see no harm in shifting the location of the mosque to a new place.

Political and press views

The major political parties like the Congress and the Bhartiya Janata Party have welcomed the judgement of the Allahabad High Court. Their mood is to settle the dispute peacefully. However, men like Mulayam Singh Yadav wish to exploit the situation to garner Muslim votes in future political battles. But some common voters have asked him to get lost and not stoke the fire of communal hatred when the complex issue of the Ram Janmabhoomi is likely to be resolved amicably. It is the same Mulayam who had joined hands with Kalyan Singh, one of the pro-masjid demolishers and later separated from him. I respect Kalyan Singh for his courage of conviction as he stuck to his stand from the word to go and not changed it even in adverse circumstances. The Muslim community knows Mulayam Singh inside out and is not likely to be swayed by his new colours. After all he is a turncoat.

Some English national dailies see the Muslim community as their constituency and loyal readers. They have dug out old fossils to write the lead articles and Op-Eds sympathising with the Muslim community in their hour of grief that has been caused by the judgements of the three-judge bench. It is indeed a sinister attempt to stoke the fire of communal passions. These pseudo-secular journalists see a bright future for their oldish ideas that they express in archaic English language. Let it be known to one and all that the days of those faction promoting scribes are over. Let them not disturb the national equilibrium by fanning rank communalism in the garb of rotten secularism. By these devilish writings they have stooped lower than the communal Urdu press that sells on the strength of its ability to use abusive language against the patriotic Indians.

Make peace not war

When the Americans took out processions to demonstrate against the US involvement in the Vietnam War, they usually carried placards saying “MAKE LOVE NOT WAR”. I shall not advocate that view in the present scenario because the population of India is more than what we can sustain. Nevertheless, we may carry placards with words in bold letters “MAKE PEACE NOT WAR”. I am in agreement with Najeeb Jung that the nation must not let go the present opportunity to settle the issue that has been vexing all communities for more than five centuries. Mir Baqi was not specifically told by Babur to demolish a Hindu temple and build a mosque using its rubble. All said and done, the act was un-Islamic.

Baburnama that contains a record of all events, be it peace or war, that were connected with Babur. Indeed it is surprising that the event of Mir Baqi being ordered to proceed to Ayodhya to demolish a Hindu temple and build a mosque using the temple material just finds no mention whatsoever. Those who have read the book dealing with Babur’s life, Baburnama, say that the relevant pages are missing from the authentic text. One wonders why?

Be that as it may, it can be safely said that the time to build a grand temple for Maryada Purshottam Shri Ram has come. The time is NOW!

Lest We Forget the Battle of Tours

History - Violent Jihad

Australians celebrate and revere Anzac Day on April 25th each year in remembrance of our brave soldiers who fought in two great world wars to secure our freedom. Every Australian identifies with the slogan “lest we forget” and in services held around the country people reflect on the battles and men who died to secure our freedom. Yet across the world in France, there is one remarkable battle which helped form the Europe we know today and allowed the development of civilization based on Judeo Christian principles. This one famous battle has become known as the battle of Tours and effectively stopped the Muslim advance into Europe. After the death of Mohammed in 632AD, Muslim armies exploded out of the Arabian peninsula to conquer much of the Middle East, expanding across north Africa. From there they crossed into Spain in 711AD and eventually controlled much of al-Andalus by 715AD. It was the victory at Tours by Charles Martel that stemmed the tide and eventually the Muslim marauders were expelled from Spain in 1492 when the last outpost at Granada fell to King Ferdinand of Spain.

History - Infidels' Resistance

Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj was born, lived, fought and won battles against religious and social oppression in the 17th century Bharat or India. He was a shining star in the Indian firmament and is renowned as a champion of the downtrodden and depressed masses. He was and continues to be an icon for the classes and masses alike and is seen as a rallying point for peasants oppressed by foreign rulers, Pathans and Moghuls alike. Sexually exploited women found in Shivaji Raje a protector, a benefactor and flocked to his Hindavi Swaraj to find solace and feel liberated under his saffron flag.

Perhaps some readers might be interested to know that January 28 is considered a feast day among Catholics – actually 2 feast days are celebrated on the same day – one is of ST Thomas Aquinas, the great medieval theologian and philosopher who adapted Aristotle to the western Judeo-Christian worldview. . It is also the feast day of a lesser known person – St Peter Nolasco, the great ransomer of captives from the Muslims.

Barbary Corsair
Somalian Islamic Pirates & Lessons from History
 
The dramatic rescue of the American cargo-ship captain Richard Phillips from the hands of Somalian Islamic pirates by the U.S. Navy—killing three pirates, holding him hostage at gun-point, through precision-targeting—warrants a review of the U.S. struggle with piracy and hostage-taking in North Africa, which ended two centuries ago.

Raiding trade-caravans and hostage-taking for extracting ransom in Islam was started by Prophet Muhammad. Having become powerful and secure after his relocation to Medina from Mecca in 622, Muhammad initiated Jihad or holy war in the form of raids of trade-caravans for earning livelihood for his community. In the first successful raid of a Meccan caravan at Nakhla in December 623, his brigands killed one of the attendants, took two of them captive, and acquired the caravan as “sacred” booty. The captives were ransomed to generate further revenue. Muhammad, later on, expanded this mode of Jihad to raiding non-Muslim communities around Arabia—for capturing their homes, properties and livestock, capturing their women and children as slaves often for ransoming and selling, and imposing extortional taxes—which sometimes involved mass-slaughter of the attacked victims.

Battle of Broken Hill Logo
 
The First Islamic Terrorist Attack on Australian Soil
 
On January 1, 1915 two Broken Hill men, both former camel drivers, armed themselves with rifles, an homemade flag bearing Islamic insignia and a large supply of ammunition and launched a surprise attack on the Picnic Train about 3 kilometres outside Broken Hill.

The train carried about 1200 Broken Hill residents to Silverton where a picnic to celebrate the new year was to take place.

The two Muslim men, Gool Mohamed originally a Pashtun tribesman from Afghanistan and Mullah Abdullah from what is known today as Pakistan, decided to wage jihad against Australian infidels after Australia and the Ottoman Empire officially joined the opposite sides in the WWI.

Jihad Galore and the Toledo Whore

Battle of Higueruela

Alhambra - GazelleHow often in conversation with a Muslim, do they quote Spain as the crowning achievement of Islam, where Muslims, Jews and Christians lived in harmony for about 800 years?

And when you mention the killings and massacres, you are told that the Spanish Inquisition was much worse.
This is a misconception, since the Inquisition in Spain was responsible for only between 4,000 and 5,000 lives. [1]

Yet in 1066AD, in a single day, muslims murdered over 4,000 Jews because Vizier Joseph ibn Naghrela had risen to a position greater than them, and of course, this upset the Muslim sensitivities. [2]

Decisive Victory for the West

At this time of year, it is timely to remember one of the greatest victories of the west against the Islamic world. On the 7th October in 1571, Don Juan and the Holy League, led by Admiral Doria, defeated the larger Ottoman fleet in the Battle of Lepanto, saving Europe from the Turks and militant Islam. The Holy League was a coalition of different armies - of the Republic of Venice, the Papacy (under Pope Pius V), Spain (including Naples, Sicily and Sardinia), the Republic of Genoa, the Duchy of Savoy, the Knights Hospitaller and some others.

Jerusalem - Coat of ArmsWhy do Muslims insist that Jerusalem is their Holy City?
When Mohamed and his faithful followers moved from Mecca to Medina, they found themselves among three Jewish tribes/clans (BANU-L-NADIR, BANU KAINUKA and BANU KURAIZA)  which settled there some time after their expulsion from their homeland and also living there were  two Arab, pagan tribes.

Mohammed, who at this stage needed more followers, decided to win those tribes over and convert them to his newly invented religion.

Islam was yet not as fully developed as we know it today, and Mohammed was still having his sessions with Allah (the Medina period revelations).

In the post 9/11 era of this modern-world, Islamists around the globe are busy with ‘damage control utopia’ in order to correct the image of religion Islam.
