APPEASMENT


My article "APPEASMENT" has been published in niticentral,an Independent News Portal.



We make movies based on Dawood. It is Dawood who decides where to strike, when to strike and how to strike, whether it is stock market investments, IPL betting, or bombing with the help of ISI, other Muslim fundamentalist and terror groups who want to give India 1000 cut, but, we continue walk an extra mile wanting to appease minorities with 20 per cent vote power. We are even ready to stake national security concerns to keep a section of minorities on our side for votes without bothering even if means going easy on Dawood and his cronies. In the last few years, what is it that the ruling coalition has not done to appease minorities?
They have been given or promised universities, courts, ministries, budget and Islamic banking. We hit the bottom recently when the Union Minister for Minority Affairs suggested setting up a SIT to go into details of charges against ‘Muslim Youths’ who are in jails. Why? Doesn’t the Minister trust Indian judiciary? Just the other day, the Congress spokesperson, Shakeel Ahmad said that Indian Mujahideen (IM) was formed as a result of post-Godhra incident. Another spokesperson of Congress went a step further saying he is not even sure of existence of IM. This must have been music to Pakistan’s ears. According to Shakeel, he was relying upon a report from NIA. Fine. In such a case, why not rely upon NIA report which states Ishrat was a terrorist? Why different standards?
Batla House encounter case is a unique one. The courts have sentenced the culprit to life. Headlines Today reported from Azamgarh stating: “This verdict comes in the holy month of Ramzan?” What is the channel implying? For some time, Azamgarh almost became a place for pilgrimage for some politicians and media personalities.  While the secular brigade keeps blaming a section of society of being communal, but are deaf and dumb when the Government decides that No Midday meals for Non-Muslim students during Ramzan in schools in Malabar, Kerala. “What is the message and for whom is the message?" During the month of Ramzan, India is reluctant to hold elections, lest minority voting per cent drops, but, Kuwait being a Muslim country holds elections during Ramzan.
This might come as a surprise to many. According a 1970 Gazzette, Delhi has 488 burial grounds for Muslims though only 30 are in use. What happened to rest 458? That is a lot of land. But, Delhi is ruled by secular brigade. In spite of court orders, the Delhi Government has been going slow on removal of illegal structure of a mosque. If one was to go by current mood, Church is an integral part, Chisti is a scientist, Bukhari is a great man, Mirwaiz is ok, Yasin Malik is Gandhinian, Owaisi is a secular leader and it is only Modi who is communal. Who is defining secularism? We have seen Kashmir helplessly; next, should we wait and watch for Kerala and the North East?
Some of us may not be aware but Indian Muslims are mentioned as ‘Hindu Muslims’ in their application for Haj. But, then it is a matter of Haj subsidy, which is available only in India, not even in Muslim countries. Who is teaching us secularism? How long will India appease minorities? To what extent will India bend to keep minority vote intact? How long will Hindus suffer to prove their secular credentials?\
Let us CHANGE INDIA  for INDIA  of  TOMORROW.

Though I cannot help despising xenophobia and the Parivar -Modi brand of activism and philosophy, I cannot disagree with the observation that Indian secularism is a sham and it is brazen appeasing of minorities with the intent of gaining their votes.

Islamic text itself states that accepting free gift and money in aid of the journey to Haj is unacceptable to God. Well why then do Indian Muslims take the ill conceived Govt subsidy? In the first place a secular constitutional govt providing subsidy for a religious activity is in itself is improper and wrong politically and constitutionally

Purba,if they go by your suggestion ,the policy of divide and rule would fall flat

Very interesting article. I just have one question. Why not the other 80% unite against these political parties? Then these leaders will be sent home in no time.

Rahul Bhatia said...

Do you really think it is policy of appeasement? It is just vote bank politics to serve own needs to stay in power at any cost regardless of caste creed or party!

Alka Gurha said...

Vote bank politics at its worst. We will have to wait till a time the uneducated masses see through this sham. Unfortunately, it might take decades.
