Did I target any individual? I honestly believe that radical Islam is the gravest threat to peace and that what you call the "battlefield verses" should be expunged. 

I sincerely believe that India lost more than it gained through its millennium old interaction with Islam. That is my honest opinion, not naked hatefulness.

Some oppose Communism, some support it. Likewise with all ideas and ideologies. Arguing against an ideology is not the same as an expression of hatred.

The title, "Quam de Heeray" (Jewels of the nation) itself is offensive as it extols assassins as jewels. The CBFC should have asked the producer to change it.

Other than that, I am against bans. There are so many films that are an insult to one's intelligence which one does not bother to watch. Then there are films which glorify vigilante justice, superstition and medieval values. Such films are more dangerous than a film on an assassination. There have been several such films on Lincoln, JFK and others, including one called "Nine Hours to Rama" on Gandhiji" which, unfortunately, is banned in India. We must let the people decide instead of allowing the government to decide on our behalf. 

Mrs. Gandhi was assassinated nearly three decades ago and a majority of Indians were either not born then or care much about it. It is highly unlikely to lead to violent protests unless they are orchestrated by political parties.

The state has been given the requisite powers by the people to uphold law and order. Is the government tacitly admitting that it is powerless to prevent a handful of lumpen elements from rioting?

Why are the self-declared votaries of freedom of expression silent on this ban?

So far, Modi Sarkar ( sorry, but it is not BJP that is in government ) has proven itself to be as corrupt ( no action against corruption ), as anti male ( note that 25% of cabinet is composed of feminits, though tey generally are averse to public life ), and business friendly ( crony capitalist ) as the Congress.

The only area it scores far ahead, is in media publicity, seen to take action on every ( tiny ) issue that is on TV channels the night before.

But we can afford to give it more time, before declaring the 'result', given that there is no viable alternative, ( except the pus*y mad family).

>> This is an oversimplification. The states only pay lip service to religion while engaging in their state craft in the usual Machiavellian ways. Only the Talibans, ISIS, and sanghis do literalistic reading, although for different reasons.

This is where the so called moderates like Anwaar loose their credibility in defending the problems with Islam or Muslim world.

A person, society and its actions is a manifestaion of its underlying philosophy, its thoughts. What we see in Islamic world today is, to put it politely, radicalization and bigotry. The results of this radicalization are there for everyone to see, and they have become much more prominent in last few decades in my opinion. Here are a few:

* Systematic stifling of minorites in Islamic countries like Pakistan, Afghanistan (wiped out), Bangladesh. I am not even talking about Saudi Arabia or ISIS.

* Degradation in society in general in fields of science, art and music. Do we find any great singers/artists from Pakistan/Bdesh anymore like there used to be three decades back.

* Muslim minorites at loggerheads/conflicts with majority in many countries as they strongly resist assimilation and try to maintain a sense of actually superior culture even as a minority with very little to show in terms of any achievements in areas of science/arts/technology. Examples are Rohangiya in Myanmar (there are actually Hindus too in Myanmar but one never hears of Hindu vs majority riots), Sri Lanka's Muslim problems and also in some parts of India.

This is not some rabid anti-Muslim rhetoric, it is reality which I believe needs to be confronted and a solution thought for it. It is not for nothing that even US/western nations have thought about ways to curb Islamic radicalization.

As pointed earlier, I believe these are consequences of "thoughts and underlying philosophy" of these people and it would deluding oneself if one were too deny that this philosphy is NOT emanating from hate literature/Sunni Wahabi philosphy or from religios scriptures.

This is where I see even the so called moderates (say Anwaar) also failing (to see these conflicts/acts as a result of philosophy built by radicalization) and just to dismiss it as limited to very small minority of people in these countries or even Muslim communities. No, it is not confined to small minority. Past track record definitely does not support that and there in no new evidence to support, it actually seems to be increasing.

This is where unfortunately a moderate Muslim's argument (like Anwaar) fails to have any weight. It is human to have a soft corner for one's religion, it is impressive to not to indulge in dirty/vulgar mudslinging when people mercilessly criticize the whole religion (I have not see many Muslims stand up to that) but to equate RSS with Taliban, to just deny that it is a problem limited only to minority of Muslims and dismiss it very quickly undermines the credibility of those and any hope that the problem's depth is actually understood and an action would be taken. 

That is sad and the end of these discussions I see is ending in mud slinging, some wayward arguments and eventually boiling down to labels of liar/low IQ etc. Sad indeed.

And it is scary to think of what not so enlightened Muslims might perceive the problem like!

Have a good one all!

People's "religious sensitivities" can get offended by fims they have never seen, books they can never read, alleged blasphemies, etc., etc. If one tries to please everybody, one ends up pleasing nobody.

I just think that meat eating festivals celebrate butchery of animals. As a child, I saw a goat being sacrificed in the famous Kalighat temple in Kolkata. I get traumatised when I recall that scene today, over half a century later.

I think that all those who want to eat meat should slaughter the animals themselves. If such a law were to be passed, 99% of the world would turn vegetarian.

1. India is a democracy and every citizen has the right to complain and seek redressal of grievances. Religion is no bar unless there happens to be a Shah Banu who cannot avail of the legal recourses available to other Indians.

2. The demographic statistics have been cited to counter the specious hypothesis enunciated by Anwaar that Muslims are less safe than Hindus.

3. The reasons for internecine violence have been discussed threadbare. The fact that minorities are dwindling in Pakistan and Bangladesh is also an irrefutable fact.

2. Only a moron will call it "gloating" when concerns are expressed about the genocides taking place in the name of religion. Only a moron will deny that Islamic fundamentalism is a grave threat to world peace. Only a moron will say that Islamists are not a threat because their actions will not lead to a world war.

Yet the Yazidis have found refuge with the Kurds and are joining them in the fight against Islamists. Kurdish schools teach their students the best of all religions. Imran Khan supports Jehadists teachings in Pak School texts. Afghan school children were indoctrinated in Jehadi ideology through text books originally produced by US. Bosnia is not in news and it is not a theocracy. 

In fact those Muslim majority countries where the non- muslims are unsafe, the Muslim deviants from the officially recognized "Islamic line" are also equally unsafe. And what about the role of Saudi Arabia in indoctrination around the world?

An easy way to see whether a columnist is biased or balanced between two opposing ideologies is to do the following smell test: say they are "Sides"  A and B:

If the author does not have a mix of pro- and con- views for both A and B, then the author can be consider unbiased. On the other hand, if the author only plays good news about A and bad news about B (but never bad news about A or good news/views about B), then the author has a political agenda to push the interests of side A and must not be trusted.  

If A is pseudo-"secular"/pro-congress views and B is "communal"/pro-BJP views, as many columnists in Outlook are, then they are just openly biased and intellectually dishonest losers...as most columnists in Outlook are and have been for a while.

Of course, it is very funny to see Vinod Mehta pretend he really gives a damn about the interest of the reader...

Looking back one sees umpteen examples when opposition leaders and especially Modi was unfairly targeted by ruling dispensation of Congress and their reputation were sought to be trashed through low level character assasination attempts. But there are four major reasons why what happened at Kaithal was wrong. First,  Hooda has been one of the most dignified and fair CM. He has never insulted or unfairly targeted his opponents. Second, difference between vote share of Congress and BJP in Haryana during last elections is not all that much, Third even a recent media poll shows Hooda as first choice of people and last hasn`t BJP come to power claiming that it will change the public discourse for the better!

Democracy is the ultimate coalition. It is Revolution by Evolution.

Consequently it is never static in it's composing constituents-even their definitions.

As democracy deepens, the idea of 'coalition' and 'live and let live' develops strength.

The social dynamics in South Asia ( or Indian subcontinent) have been unique since it developed the Coalition Society through a natural process- the society which the propogators of Hindutva do not stop hailing as the best and keep on talking of the 'assimilative and absorptive characterisitc of Hinduism' ( sadly without understanding how oxymoronic it is to conflate Hindutva with Hinduism).

Only a hate-filled moron would bring in a religious rite to defend himself from the charge of gloating over the gruesome murders by a crazed maniac who calls himself 'Caliph'. You are beyond the pale!

>> "Today, nobody is burning widows, sacrificing humans or carrying out crusades."

Those are good examples of what misapplications of religions can do, irrespective of whether it was done yesterday or is being done today. Saying, "Look we are so much better than you now!" is a ridiculous response.

Ghai,

>> "Tamil Nadu panchayat president’s hubby chops teen’s hand for ‘disrespect’

>> "A drowning sinking man and races catch the last straw."

Is this all you have to say about this ghastly event? What kind of people are you?

Mohan,

>> "Denial is never going to help. Until this is accepted and sincere efforts are put by religious sccholars..."

This is sheer ignorance and over-simplification.

Good article! The U.S. cannot defeat terrorism without bearing down on Saudi Arabia and Pakistan.

All columnists have their agendas. It is upto the editor to select an assortment of columnists who balance each other out and upto the reader to be skeptical.

"Being in denial only worsens matters."

It is no good to say that terrorists 'do not have a religion'. This rubbish is propagated by the goddist media.

The truth is: ALL religionist terrorists are evil. Moslemist are the worst.

The decimation of the Congress is close ( unless BJP commits a blunder ). Happily for us, its end is near.

However, the leaders of the Congress are too arrogant and thick headed to see the writing on the wall.

What is more abominable than spreading anti-Muslim hate in a forum in which both Hindus and Muslims participate? But understanding that must be beyond you! ANWAAR, DALLAS, UNITED STATES

Nobody has the brains or intelligence as Anwaar has. He is very broad minded, as his fellow religionists are, and only the Sanghis are bad. hatred towards others is in the DNA of the muslims. Others have learnt hatred from them.

"Religions have been known to ispire even burning of widows and human sacrifice. Euroean Christians brought two extremely bloody crusades to Jerusalem."...Anwaar

Today, nobody is burning widows, sacrificing humans or carrying out crusades. 

What is relevant today are the activities of ISIS, Boko Haram, Al Qaeda, Lashkar e Toiba, Jaish e Muhammad, Indian Mujahideen, Tehreek e Taliban and many such radical Islamic groups. Extreme terrorism, beheadings, kidnappings, suicide bombings, forcible conversions, massacres are some of their favourite methods to achieve their objective of making the world a better place.

Instead of accepting that there is a massive problem confronting the world, you hark back to the crusades and various evils that are extinct. Being in denial only worsens matters.
