Jizya come back Khilji -Aurangazeb rule India again20/12/2008 03:23:28
: Now, there are lot
conditions imposed on celebration of Indian traditional festivals,
conduct of pilgrimages and other periodical religious congregations. In
India with the tradition, culture, heritage and civilization of more
than 5000 years, the periodic festivals like Kumbamela, Adiperukku or
gathering at Sangamams / Kudals (confluence of three rivers) for sacred
bath on the prescribed days, Karttikai Theepam, etc., in different
parts of temples have been part of Indian people.
However, of late, there have been restrictions on such celebrations by
the State and Central government through the rulers, who are nothing
but politicians with motives.
Mohammedan rulers imposed such restrictions
: In the past, the Mohammedan rulers imposed such restrictions through Jizya – religious toll tax on Hindus.
The conditions of Jizya have been very specific and they were meant for
restricting the movement of Hindus by participating and celebrating in
huge numbers, as had been going on for many years. When Hindus had
been in large numbers, there was difficulty for Mohammedan marauders
for looting. Initially, the Mohammedans intruded into India as raiders
and looters in hoards and used to retreat or run away after looting.
But from 11th – 12th centuries onwards, they
tried to settle down and rule from Delhi. Thus, the so-called Delhi
Sultanate rule started and they imposed Jizya tax on Hindus.
The conditions of Jizya tax system imposed on Hindus
The Hindus who agree to pay jizya were allowed to live and work in the
Islamic state with the following conditions. The operation started with
Khiljis (1290-1320 CE) and pursued by other Muslim rulers:
They are not to build any new places of worship.
They are not to repair any old places of worship which have been destroyed by the Muslims.
They are not to prevent Muslim travellers from staying in their places of worship.
They are to entertain for three days any Muslim who wants to stay in their homes, and for a longer period if he falls ill.
They are not to harbour any hostility or give aid and comfort to hostile elements.
They are not to prevent anyone of them from getting converted to Islam.
They have to show respect to every Muslim.
They have to allow Muslims to participate in their private meetings.
They are not to dress like Muslims.
They are not to name themselves with Muslim names.
They are not to ride on horses with saddle and bridle.
They are not to possess arms.
They are not to wear signet rings or seals on their fingers.
They are not to sell or drink liquor.
They are to wear a distinctive dress, which shows their inferior status and separates them from Muslims.
They are not to propagate their customs and usages among the Muslims.
They are not to build their houses in the neighbourhood of Muslims.
They are not to bring their dead near the graveyards of the Muslims.
They are not to observe their religious practices publicly or mourn their dead loudly.
They are not to buy Muslim slaves.
Ironically, most of the conditions are prevailing
in India today. For each, we can give hundreds and thousands of
examples can be given.
December 6: The Jizya prevails in India
: On December 6 of every year, the media itself gives enough publicity to make it a "Terrorist Day" or "Jihad-implementation Day"
and thus, the Jizya-ideology coupled with Jihadi-threat starts
prevailing everywhere, restricting, preventing and harassing Hindus
like anything at bus-stands, railway station and in temples
particularly operated through the police and security forces. Whether
Jihadi-Islamist terrorist attack or not the media-terror and the
security-terror really terrorize people! It is a wonder when the
heinous Islamic terrorists have been bombing and killing people in
India, how they would come out and attack on that day, when the media
and government have already given enough publicity. Not only that, they
give full details with photographs, how the security arrangements have
been made! After schools and colleges, such terror has come to Music
· Frisking of devotees – particularly, the ladies are subjected to a lot of inconvenience.
word "frisk" has the meanings = search, check for weapons, pat down,
body search, examine, inspect etc. Are these required for devotees
coming there regularly?
of bags – virtually, the "offerings brought to temple" are ransacked
upside down, making the sanctity useless – flowers are crushed,
dhoop-sticks broken, offerings brought completely disturbed, packets
opened, even coconuts dropped on the ground while "checking"!
· They are stopped at the darshan queues for repeated checking.
In fact, these acts amount to insult the devotees,
abuse of the rights of Hindus and violation of established Agama
Sastras of temples.
If the Indian security system could not identify the real terrorists
and regular devotees, it is a shame on the system. If they doubt that
the Jihadi-Islamic-Mohammedan terrorists would sneak into temples in
that way, then, it is proving the historical fact.
"Non-Hindus are not allowed", "People wearing Lungis and Pants are not allowed"
Many people used to take objection about the boards put up at the
entrance of the temples – "Non-Hindus are not allowed", "People wearing
Lungis and Pants are not allowed" etc.
Rich, elite and secular categories of "Hindus" used to write letters
and they would be prominently published in the "National dailies".
Most of such letters would be from USA and other advanced countries.
But now, they could understand how the Jizya and Jihad systems would
have worked in the past and also working now, so that such boards are
required. Why then with all their richness and wisdom, they (the Hindus
in foreign countries) could not protect their religion and temples but
when they come to India, they expect all sorts of concessions,
privileges etc.? They spent in dollars in night clubs etc., there and
try to repent and expiate their sins here by offering in rupees to
temples! They treat their Indian visit as some short of
"divine-commercial trip" which should be done within their scheduled
program. All rules and procedures could be flouted and violated. What
sort of hypocrisy it is and has been fooling other Hindus and also
creating bad image about India?
Mohammedans, Christians, atheists and other non-Hindus sitting inside are not "frisked" or " doubted"!
In the past, as the Hindus had clearly recognized that the Mohammedans
had been the temple demolishers and destroyers, and Idol-breakers, they
had been identified, monitored and branded accordingly.
Later, as times changed, the warnings appeared according to easy
understanding for the people. Thus, "Non-Hindus are not allowed",
"People wearing Lungis and Pants are not allowed" etc., have specific
meanings. Till early 20th century, there had been man to man
relationship prevailing among the Indians and thus the temple priests,
employees and the people around knew "who is who" coming to the
temples. Now, the temples have been commercialized by the atheist,
secular and other politicians. Ironically, the Mohammedan, Christian,
ant-Hindu categories are getting employment and sitting right inside
and they are not subjected to any "frisking"! How one can vouchsafe
that such Mohammedans, Christians, atheists and anti-Hindus would not
collude and collaborate with the Jihad-Islamic terrorists?
Non-Hindus have been dominating in and around Temples commercially
Another important fact has been the shops and other surrounding places
of temples have been dominated by the non-Hindus. Even on Tirumala,
Mohammedans are freely roaming as vendors, TTD employees, workers and
so on (besides AP govt. Employees)! Of course, it has been a regular
feature in Tamilnadu and Kerala. The Mohammedan, Christian, atheists
and non/anti-Hindu categories are getting shop allotments, license and
contracts for temple related activities. They do only for money, of
course, definitely with contempt for the temples and Hindus. Otherwise,
these activities are supposed to be carried on by the temple devotees
voluntarily offering their services as "Uzhavarapp pani", "Kar-seva"
etc. Anybody remembers or knows the significance of Titunavukkarasar
carrying "Uzhavaarap padai" i.e, just like hand-spade to clean. Thus,
the cleaning, repair and maintenance wiork was carried on by the
devotees and not by these non-Hindu contractors. But the present
Central and State governments have spoiled the system completely.
Remember, how the meaningful expression "Kar-seva" has been disparaged
and belittled by the media and other anti-Hindus. The recent demolition activities carried on at the temples under the guise of renovation has also been part of such attitude exhibited through the Dravidian politicians and rulers.
Security norms laid down for music festivals
: "The Hindu" characteristically reports
that, "In tune with the prevailing security scenario, the Chennai
Police have laid down security guidelines to be implemented at venues
of music festivals. Organisers and auditorium staff have been told to
upgrade security by installing gadgets, including metal detectors.
Deputy Commissioner of Police (Mylapore) A.G. Mourya, who convened a
meeting of auditorium representatives here on Wednesday, underlined the
need for establishing closed circuit television network as a permanent
security measure." He adds that, "There are about 21 auditoria,
including a few in schools, where music festivals are held in the Tamil
month of Margazhi. Detailed instructions have been given on the dos and
don'ts. We have asked them to engage trained security personnel and
install Door Frame Metal Detectors," said Mr. Mourya. Areas in close
vicinity to the auditoria should be kept free from congestion to
facilitate movement of emergency services such as ambulances or fire
tenders. Organisers should request music lovers not to bring any
baggage." Thus, here a lot of questions arise:
· These festivals have been going on for thousands of years without any problem.
· And absolutely, there is no question of the Police to teach the persons connected with music festivals to follow, "Detailed instructions have been given on the dos and don'ts."
upgradation of security by installing gadgets, including metal
detectors and engaging trained security personnel and install Door
Frame Metal Detectors etc., are too much as the musicians and music
lovers are not fighting with Jihadis.
· If that is the case, it is the default of the present Governments for such nurturing of Jihadi-terrorism.
Just for example, few specific cases of temples
and related issues are studied, in other words, these examples are only
for illustrative purposes and not exhaustive, as there have been crores
of sacred places available for Hindus in India and even outside India.
Lashkar could target Madurai"s Meenakshi temple
: The reports appear
in the media is unbelievable."Laskar could attack Madurai Meenakshi
temple"! The famous Meenakshi temple in Madurai in Tamil Nadu is on
the Lashkar-e-Tayiba"s hit-list, fears the Intelligence Bureau. The IB
has alerted Tamil Nadu"s director general of police with information
obtained by intercepts by the Indian Army and the Research and Analysis
Wing, India"s external intelligence agency. IB Director P C Haldar
spoke to Tamil Nadu DGP K P Jain on Saturday to convey the Centre"s
concerns. Union Home Minister Shivraj Patil may speak to state Chief
Minister M Karunanidhi to urgently post additional security at the
temple. The Centre wants the Tamil Nadu government to take quick action
on its alert and avert any threat to the shrine.
"s Krishna Kumar P adds
Security in and around the Meenakshi temple has been beefed up, the
Tamil Nadu police said on Saturday. "I cannot share with you details of
the IB inputs. The temple figures in our alerts also. We have asked the
respective departments to step up security in vulnerable installations
and public places like markets and malls. Temples also figure in this,
and security has been stepped up," DGP Jain told rediff.com,
but declined to answer questions about any specific alert about the
temple. Madurai Commissioner of Police Nandabalan said he was asked to
increase security at the temple by his superiors. "The temple has
always been secure. Only recently we ensured that all guides and
shopowners in the area were ID-ed and identity cards were issued. We
recently installed closed circuit security cameras," he told rediff.com
The temple has four entrances and the police have placed a
sub-inspector, an armed reserve policeman and a local constable at each
entrance. Also, vehicular traffic around the temple has been blocked;
only pedestrians are allowed in the four streets that form the
perimeter of the temple.
"After the Ahmedabad blasts, we did not want to
take any chances. With our own inputs and also the central input, we
have decided to enhance the security to the temple. We have set up an
exclusive control room at the temple," Nandabalan said. A top priest of
the temple said the police switched into vigilance mode from early
Saturday. "Early in the morning, when the temple gates were opened, the
police were there with sniffer dogs. They were very alert. We thought
it was a routine exercise, but what struck us was the intensity of the
search. There were more policemen than usual and their presence did not
decrease as the day wore on, as is usual," C Shanmuga Sundara Bhattar,
one of the senior-most priests at the temple, told rediff.com The vast temple witnessed a minor blast in 1996, when a country-made bomb exploded in a corner of the shrine.
The Jihadi-threat to Temples has been become regular feature
: Last September also,
there was threatening from the Islamic terrorists about the targeting
Five Big temples of Tamilnadu! Security has been stepped up in five
major temples in Tamil Nadu following an intelligence alert of terror
attacks. The Meenakshi Temple in Madurai, the Ramanathaswamy Temple in
Rameswaram, the Murugan temple in Palani, the Kapaleeswarar Temple in
Chennai and Sri Ranganathar Temple in Srirangam in Tiruchirappalli have
come under a heightened security. Besides these temples, commercial
hubs in Chennai and elsewhere have also been placed under surveillance.
However, officials are wary about security arrangements in the temples,
as they want the Hindu Religious and Charitable Endowments department,
that administers temples, to be more proactive. Delhi, Jaipur,
Ahmadabad and Bengaluru were hit by serial blasts in recent months
killing and injuring hundreds of people.
Red alert after threat to temples at Varanasi!
: Varanasi: An anonymous letter by a person claiming to be a member of the terrorist outfit, Lashkar-e-Taiba,
has threatened terror attacks at the disputed site in Ayodhya, and the
Banaras Hindu University and the Sankat Mochan temple here on Holi day.
The authorities have sounded a red alert in the district. The letter,
sent to the office of the Senior Superintendent of Police on Thursday,
also threatened attacks on the Cantonment railway station and the bus
stand from March 4 onwards, SSP Sujit Pandey"s Public Relations Officer
K.D. Tripathi said here. The Sankat Mochan temple and the Cantonment
railway station were targeted by terrorists last year.
Tight security at Tirumala, Bhadrachalam: Following the threat
forces deployed in and around the temple complexes and Security was
beefed up at the Tirumala temple in connection with the Babri Masjid
demolition anniversary on Saturday in and around the temple complex.
Roof-top centring atop the temple complex was increased by deploying
additional men. Frisking of devotees and checking of bags were stepped
up at both the darshan queue complexes and at Alipiri security point at
Tirupati. To keep a watch on the movement of anti-social elements
crossroad patrolling was organised around the Mada streets encircling
the holy shrine and at other places, which witness heavy congregation
of pilgrims. The TTD security and vigilance staff and the district
police conducted combing operations along the footpath leading to the
temple town besides undertaking the night patrolling. Khammam Staff
Reporter writes: Following the terrorist attacks in Mumbai, security
was tightened at the Bhadradri temple in Bhadrachalam with security
personnel undertaking regular checking and frisking on the premises.
However, two of the three door frame metal detectors at the temple were
out of order and the eastern gate of the temple had no metal detector.
The special police force entrusted with the temple security were
managing with three handheld metal detectors. The Police Department
urged the authorities to get the DFMDs repaired immediately. Some ten
constables and two head constables of the SPF have been put on guard.
The local police have been assisting them and supplementing their
efforts by conducting regular checking of the vehicles and suspected
elements on the roads and lanes leading to the shrine. The police
wanted a separate locker to be arranged near the main gate so that
pilgrims could be made to deposit their handbags before entering the
premises. A separate bandobust plan was prepared for the Mokkoti
festival to be held on January 6 and 7.
Danger behind the so-called "security – beefing up"
As jihadi-Islamist-Islamic terrorism has been identified, action should be taken on such "perpetrators"
: Now, it is open that these Jihadi-Islamist-Islamic terrorists have been against Hindus in particular
and therefore, the Central and State government should take immediate
action in controlling, containing and stopping their activities. They
need not give advice or alert or crate panic in temples under the guide
of safety and security, If they are really interested, first let them
the non-hindus are transferred and thrown out of the Temples, Temple
boards and related functions. Not that Hindus disbelieve them, but
under prevailing conditions, they have to be sent out and they can be
posted in Mosques, Churches, mausoleums, graveyards and samadhis
(wonderful structures built over their dead bodies) of their leaders,
as they have become their gods. Incidentally, Veeramani has been going
on planting EVR statues all over Tamilnadu and therefore, they can be
easily accommodated there.
PS: Some raise doubts how some things happen inadvertantly or with intention:
