Intolerant Intellectuals belittling Bharath; Why this sudden outburst? Suffering from Secular Syndrome? PART – 2

By Global Hindu Heritage Foundation - published on November 27, 2015

“No Indian can tolerate when the nation is being insulted on a global level and there are those who are doing that right now. They feel that ever since the new government has come into power, the nation has plunged into a state of intolerance. This is not a fresh atmosphere. What about the Emergency, the Kashmiri pandits’ exodus and the riots? What is today’s level of intolerance being compared to?” Anupam Kher asked.

“My intentions are not political. I am just proud and thankful of the fact that this nation has given me so much. I was just a small guy from a small town, but look where I am right now. Sometimes you have to give back,” Kher said. He also admitted that he was concerned about his acting career as he has waded into murky waters with his stand.

Kamal Hasan“They are talented people. Just one article by them will bring more attention than returning an award. They should keep the awards, make us proud and continue to fight any government that is not tolerant enough,” he said.

Awards are given by a jury in recognition of work done by creative people. It has nothing to do with a government,” he said.

“Nothing will happen by returning the awards. You will insult the government or the people who gave you the award with love. That will bring attention, but there are many more ways to do it,” said the 60-year-old actor.

Liberals are closed minded and color blind

Many of these so called intellectuals witnessed the slaughter of more than 4000 Sikhs, allowed Indira Gandhi to declare emergency and deny the birth right to express their views, killed score of people and imprisoned untold number of citizens. Where were all these intellectuals? Were they promised all these awards for keeping quiet or was it acceptable as long as Muslims and Christians were not impacted? Why did they not speak out when nearly 60 Hindus were burned by Muslims in a railway compartment in Gujarat in 2002? Was it because they were colorblind, Muslimblind and anti-Hindus?

Why do these intellectuals keep harping on the Gujarat riots and charge Modi being responsible for killing Muslims even after Supreme Court absolved him of all the charges leveled against him?Do these intellectuals believe that the Supreme Court cannot do any justice to these Muslims? It appears that they do not have any confidence, trust or faith in the justice system. In order to appease the Muslims these intellectuals will do anything to tarnish the image of Bharath, denounce the BJP government, and smudge the Hindu ideals, morals and ethos that have shaped the humanity for thousands of centuries. They seem to be allergic to these ideals and ready to dump them to please the minorities. If they have the power, they would be delighted to see the demise of Hindutva. Pushpa Bhargava wrote a letter to the President of India: “No one would be more aware than you that, de facto, BJP is the political front of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), and functions under the leadership of RSS that is fully committed to the ideology of Hindutva, which I find divisive, unreasonable and unscientific.”

Who is Secular?

If these intellectuals are so abhorrent toward Bharath and Hindutva, what do they believe that should guide the country? What do these liberals want to replace Hindutva with? They are fond of using the concept “SECULAR.” Intolerant intellectuals, atrocious Abrahamic religions and myopic media would love to talk about secularism, they enjoy talking about it, they believe in it, they advocate it and they fiercely defend it without ever defining the concept “SECULAR.” Can any of these so called secularists define it? No way. They dance around it, and they are the people whom we call ‘beat around the bush.’  They cannot pinpoint. Indian Constitution declared India as secular without ever defining the word. Supreme Court refused to define it. No politician dares to answer the question.  They cannot accept any definition so that they can circumvent and interpret the way they do. But they call themselves intellectuals or liberals.

Taslima Nasreen said most secular people are anti-Hindu.“Most secular people are pro-Muslims and anti-Hindu. They protest against the acts of Hindu fundamentalists and defend the heinous acts of Muslim fundamentalists. Politicians appease Muslims for votes. This annoys many Hindus. In Canning, a Hindu village in West Bengal, was burnt down by Muslim fanatics in 2013. If Muslims were brutally persecuted in India, they would have left India for neighboring Muslim countries like Hindu minorities have been leaving Bangladesh and Pakistan since Partition.” she further added.

They never question the Islamic countries that deny freedom to their females and would not grant freedom either to change their religion, criticize their religion or renounce their religion.   In January, liberal writer Raif Badawi was flogged 50 times after his sentencing to 10 years in prison and 1,000 lashes for blasphemy last year, prompting an international outcry. Badawi is in prison, but diplomats say he is unlikely to be flogged again.

Tufail Ahmad rightly described the secularists and their true colors. They are not only color blind, they are in fact half Islamists and half Pakistanis meaning that they would not criticize the Muslims, would not talk about fatwas and sharia law, they would not dare say almost all terrorist acts were committed by Muslims and venture to say that Islam and democracy are incompatible. Why do these intolerant intellectuals would not talk about the freedom of expression, freedom of speech and freedom of religion in all those 56 Islamic countries? Can these intellectuals go to any of these Arab counties and criticize Islam the way they are demeaning Hinduism and Hindutva. They know that they may not see the day light if they criticize Quran and Mohammad.

It is paradoxical and mind boggling to read about these so called intellectuals who surrendered their awards would not come to the rescue of A R Rahman the great musician known internally when fatwa is issued for scoring music for a movie on Prophet Mohammad forcing him to cancel the musical show to be held in New Delhi on September 13. When the concert of Ghulam Ali was cancelled to be held in Mumbai by the Siva Sena’s threat to disrupt, not a fatwa, Arvind Kejriwal, Akhilesh Yadav,  Mamata Banerjee and others volunteered to organize the concert for Gulam Ali in their respective states but not for A R Rahman.

Intolerance always existed, Nothing New

Bibek Debroy, the famous economist, argues that intolerance has always existed. Nothing new. He cited the examples of Dr. Jagdish Bhagwati who was essentially made to leave Delhi School of Economics and had to go abroad because his life was made very uncomfortable. Similarly, Dr B.R. Shenoy was the only one who opposed the second five-year plan. There after he was completely ostracized. He could not get a job in India and he ended up in Ceylon. In 2002, Debroy decided to organize a conference by inviting Seshadri Chari who was the editor of Organiser.  Let us read the experience of organizing the conference and who is intolerant. “On the day of the seminar, a paper front-paged a report ‘Congress think tank invites editor of Organiser.” I get a phone call from 10, Janpath. Not Mrs Gandhi. “Madam has asked me to speak to you. Please withdraw this invitation to Seshadri Chari.” I said I have issued the invitation and if Madam wants to talk to me, let her talk to me. Ten minutes later the phone rings again. “Will you please ask Seshadri Chari to give in writing what he is going to speak?” I said I am not going to do that. “No, Madam wants to see it.” “

Debroy concluded in an interview conducted by The Times of India on November 5, 2015:  If you tell me intolerance is increasing, it is purely anecdotal and is purely a subjective perception, there is no point in arguing with you because you will say it is increasing and I will say there is no evidence of it increasing. The only way I can measure something is that if I have got some quantitative indicator. If I look at any quantitative indicator, communal violence incidents, internet freedom, these are objective indicators, and I don’t think it is increasing. In the intellectual circuit there has always been that intolerance. Let’s not pretend otherwise.

Why there is Dead Silence toward Muslim denouncement of Hindus? Will the real Intellectuals Speak up?

Following are the statements from Muslim leaders and their desire to annihilate Hindus. Do these intellectuals know that there are 56 Islamic countries and not a single Hindu country? Do they know that an Indian cannot carry Gods picture with them when they go to Saudi Arabia? Do these INTELLECTUALS know that Hindus and Christians cannot celebrate their respective festivals in Saudi Arabia? Do they know that anybody who speaks against Islam or draw a picture of Allah can be killed? These liberals see no evil, hear no evil and speak no evil when it comes to ISLAM. They won’t even acknowledge that a nonbeliever in Islam can be killed. Read the outrageous statement Muslim leaders made against Hindus. Do any of these intellectuals believe Hindu can make a similar statements?  They only know how to criticize Hindus because they cannot be beheaded. They know they cannot see the day of light if they criticize Islam.

“Hindus shouldn’t make the mistake of considering Indian-Muslims any different from the Pakistan-Muslims. If India may dare to attack Pakistan, then 25 crore Indian Muslims will join Pakistan Forces and fight against India.” Asaduddin Owaisi, Member of Parliament,MIM, Hyderabad.

Hindus do not have any rights to vote in Arab, Pakistan or any one of the 56 Islamic Nations. I challenge: has even a single Hindu the strength (guts) to impose restrictions on our (Muslims’) voting-rights in India?Maulana Badarrudin Ajmal, Loksabha Sansad, AIUDF, Assam.

In Hyderabad, our Muslim population has crossed 50%, and now we are in majority. Therefore I demand the Administration to impose restrictions on celebration of Hindu festivals such as Ram-navami, Hanuman Jayanti etc. In the Bhagya-Lakshmi temple, near Char-Minar, we have already shown our strength by stopping the ringing of the Bell/gong.  We Muslims will ensure that this temple is also destroyed.Akbaruddin Owaisi, Sansad, Majlis-e-Ittehadul-Musalmeen, (AIMIM), Hyderabad, India.

“I regret the continuing of massacre of Hindus & Buddhists in Bangladesh, but Bangladesh is an Islamic Nation and not Secular. Now, the Muslims are in majority here. Under the circumstances, if Hindus & Buddhists want to live safely, they should either convert to Islam or go to India.”Begum Khalida Zia, President, Bangla National Party.

“Hindu-Leaders may wear a Muslim cap any number of times, but we Muslim-Leaders will never put a Tilak. Let Hindus may give any amount of respect to our Namaz, but we Muslims will surely boycott “Vande Matram”, because in Islam both Secularism & Patriotism are haraam(prohibited/unclean).”Azam Khan, Leader, Samajwadi Party, U.P.

“Muslims have ruled India for 1100 years. Lacs of Hindus were beheaded. Crores of Hindus were converted into Islam. We divided India, and snatched Pak & Bangladesh. Demolished 2000 temples and converted these into mosques. It is out of our fear that Hindus even today chant: “Hindu Muslim Bhai Bhai”.  This is the strength of Islam.”Maulana Jhakir Nayeek, Mumbai.

“Let Hindus consider Cow as a Mother, even then we Muslims will surely cut the Cows, because sacrifice is Muslims’ Religious right. Allah demands Sacrifice. Muslims don’t fight an oral-war, we do everything directly with our might. We are not afraid of any ruler or Government because we the Muslim community have already grown sizably. If any mother’s son intervenes, we will deal with him, but we will certainly cut Cows.”Nuroor Rahman Barkati, Shahi Imam, Tipu Sultan Masjid, Kolkata, India.

 “In the face of our strength (might), Hindus are not able to build even a single Ram-Temple in their own country. Do Hindus have the spunk to even stall the construction of a Mosque in Saudi-Arabia, Pak or any one of the 56 Islamic countries?”Maulana Sayyad Ahmad Bukhari, Shahi Imam, Jama Masjid, Delhi.

“Hindus don’t have the spunk to stop infiltration (illegal) of our Bangladeshi Muslim brothers into Assam; we will continue to come (infiltrate).”Maulana Badarrudin Ajmal, Loksabha Sansad, AIUDF, Assam.

Will the Real Intellectuals Stand up and be HEARD

It is time we hear from these so called intellectuals about what the Muslim leaders are saying about their intent to and what their response would be. Muslims have been openly challenging, demeaning, denouncing and demanding the Hindus to fight with them. The Muslim leaders have openly declared that they would divide India into three counties – Mughalisthan, Dalitisthan and Dravidisthan. They have been succeeding in sending millions of Bangladesh Muslims to infiltrate into India and create havoc in the hearts of Hindus by burning the village house to drive all the Hindu away from their birth places, kidnapping and converting the Hindu girls to Islam, destroy the Hindu Temples andimposing sharia law in certain parts of West Bengal. These intellectuals cannot fathom the gravity of the Islamic terrorism because they refuse to acknowledge or possibly encourage these types of activities to root out Hindu way of life.

The intellectuals do not give a hoot either to the Muslim boy got killed or the rationalist author who was killed. It is a smokescreen for their contempt for Hindu civilization. Anybody who talks about Hindutva is an enemy of Muslims and Christians.   They have not expressed this kind of outrage against Congress government in spite of the large number of killings in Punjab, during emergency, and all the terrorist attacks by Muslims groups on the Indian soil, because Congress Party, Communist Party and other similar parties are doing their dirty work, that is working relentlessly for the annihilation of Hindu civilization by destroying the Hindu Temples, allowing Bangladesh infiltration to change the demographics, throwing out Kashmiri Pandits from their homeland, changing the textbooks to insult the freedom fighters, glorifying the Muslim rulers who killed untold number of Hindus, denouncing the Hindu religious worship practices, passing laws pitting one group against the other, and so on.  With new government, things are expected to change. The intolerant intellectuals realized that their dream of annihilating Hindu civilization may not be realized.  They have to come up with a strategy, rather a contrived plan, a manufactured scheme, and vicious tactics to dismantle the Hindu edifice.

The intellectuals lost their critical thinking capacity in order to annihilate Hindu civilization and trained themselves to abuse Hindutva and become colorblind with minorities. They see no wrong with Muslims and whenever there is a discussion about all the terrorists are mainly Muslims, they dismiss the truth by saying every religion have terrorists.  They do not exercise their brains to be rational thinkers. That means they do not think rationally, scientifically, objectively, logically and skillfully. They would not engage in discussions, debates, dialogues, dissection and analysis of the issue at hand. For these intellectuals two recent killings are worse than the 59 Hindu religious people who were burned alive in a railway compartment in Gujarat, killing of nearly 3000 Sikhs during Sikh riots, more than ten terrorist attacks by Islamic radicals in India over the last ten years killing thousands, total decimation of Hindus in Pakistan since Independence, murder of millions of Hindus in Bangladesh, etc. With all their intelligence they fail to conceptualize, identify, analyze, reflect, reason, evaluate and assess the total picture of the scenario and attribute every small incidence to Modi, BJP, RSS, VHP and other Hindu organizations.They do not even acknowledge that Christianity allows killing of people for working on Sabbath, for disobeying the parents, not listening to the priest and failing to accept Jesus.  Islam openly announcethe killing of followers of other faith. Quran says ‘Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him.’ Non-followers of Islam are kefirs who can be expended. Do these intellectuals interested in knowing the differences among religion on a rational and logical basis or their only aim is to annihilate Hinduism.

Intellectuals may find the advice of President Pranab Mukherjeepalatable when he said that prestigious awards palatable “are a public recognition of talent, merit and hard work, by peers and leaders in the profession” and that “such awards should be cherished and valued by those who receive them.”  “Sensitive minds sometimes get disturbed by some incidents in society. But, expression of concern over such events should be balanced. Emotions should not overrun reason, and disagreement should be expressed through debate and discussion.” Hindu scriptures are known to encourage discussion, dialogue and debate. No student would leave the Gurukulam without clearing all the doubts. Hindus never hid behind the WORD of the scriptures. Everything is debatable and is subjected to discussion. Freedom of questioning is never discouraged. No Hindu scripture will condemn to death for failing to follow their faith. Intellectuals may remove their blinders and look around and see for themselves.

May be it is worth paying attention to Anne W Besant who spent many years in India and fought for her Independence to make sure the all the Indians would enjoy the freedom. Her assessment of all the religions is worth remembering: “Make no mistake, without Hinduism, India has no future. Hinduism is the soil in to which India’s roots are stuck and torn out of that she will inevitably wither as a tree torn out from its place. And if Hindus do not maintain Hinduism, who shall save it? If India’s own children do not cling to her faith, who shall guard it. India alone can save India and India and Hinduism are one. “
