Indian Media-Islamophillic/Islamophobic?

via HK published on September 11, 2006

When the Hindus question the conversion activities in Christian Schools, there comes a huge cry from Media but if the same is being questioned by Muslims, The whole media is mum!


The whole national and even some international media carried top stories abusing the Students who led a protest march to the convent school in Lucknow, but our Secular media missed out a similar story from Pulwama district in J&K. There a Missionary school have been closed for five days based on allegations of conversion, the only difference is that there Missionaries tried to convert Muslims.


Our secular media is bribed only to scribe against Hindus, If there is an issue between Muslims and Christians they know how to play the game safely, without annoying the both.


In Malappuram, a Muslim majority district in Kerala, threatening of convent schools by Islamic Extremists are common. The Muslims won’t allow the schools to run if the Christian schools demanded the removal of head scarf of Muslim girls nor if they force Muslim students to attend their prayer.


For Missionaries it was always the Hindus the soft target, Christians won’t dare to meddle up with Muslims. One can also notice little of conversion activities in Muslim dominated areas or in Muslim nations.


Recently a Muslim from Wayanad district converted to Christianity from Muringoor Divine centre and took up the job of Preacher, within weeks after his conversion he was kidnapped by Islamic extremists. No hue and cry over the issue or protest marches for CBI enquiry.


The media in India was always in forefront to impose the lofty ideals of tolerance and humanity when the Hindus start protesting but a shameful silence if the same comes from the other side. Is it because of Islamophilia or Islamophobia?
