"No sensible Muslim is doing that. Only mullahs, jihadis and sanghis like yourself insist on literalistic reading of every verse."(Of Koran that preaches violence against "enemies" of islam )

@Anwaar,  I am sure you know it but just like everything else, you wont acknowledge it.

The literal meaning of the verses in koran, would be of no consequence to infidels like me, were it not for the fact that I see islamic states and groups from Saudi Arabia to Pakistan to ISIS -- putting the literal meaning into action and excuting or implementing them. So if you say that they are not "sensibe muslims" - then most of the islamic world is insane and you are part of what they call the "ummah" ( the brotherhoood of the believers ) - into insanity.

How many Indians can recall the way in which  Indian Prime Minister  Atal Bihari Vajpayee was humiliated, booed  and shamed by the Gujarati crowd when Atalji started to speak at a function  during his first  visit to Gujarat  in 2002  after the world famous  state sponsored genocide massacre POGROM masterminded by the CM . The function  to  turn out  to be a fiasco was masterminded  by  the same  MSTERMIND  to take revenge on the reported  counsel to Modi   by the  PRIME MINISTER   to  perorm RAJDHRAM  as a penance for the blood shed he committed on the people he was  duty bound to protect . It was also  reported that Modi deliberately created transport blockades   in the city  to prevent the people to attend the meeting of the PRIME MINISTER.  

This is the  TALENT  of the  crooked MASTERMIND  reigning India  now. What all havocs  will strike India is worth watching.  Goonda character and matching goonda bhakts following  with money flowing like a river in flood. . Immediate salvation for India is IMPOSSIBLE.   !!

"All democracies are imperfect—although much less imperfect than authoritarian regimes—but in contemporary European democracies or in North America you will not find today the particular flaws to which you refer. "

NOT TRUE. In the field of economics almost everyone is mistaken starting from fundamentals. The federal balance is (FISCAL DEFICIT - TRADE DEFICIT ) = NET PRIVATE SAVINGS. The source of money to the private sector is FISCAL DEFICIT, not TAXES. Almost nobody knows this. If the FISCAL DEFICIT is minimized, the economy will die.

I don't understand this interview unless Saba Naqvi is deliberately misquoting Abdel Atwan.

Last month on July 23rd, the UNHRC passed the resolution condemning Israel's action in Gaza. India voted for the resolution which was passed by 29-1 majority. The sole votary against it was USA.

"For India, principle must trump expediency. Israel is an ally but that does not give it a carte balanche to violate human rights. Hamas is a terrorist group with little local support and Arabs have been fair weather friends to India. But that does not alter the argument: Israel must negotiate - and negotiate quickly- by relinquishing the territory it has occupied and ratify, despite its misgivings, the 2-state agreement. This will create an independent Palestine living side-by-side with Israel in relative peace. The alternative is intermittent terror and counter-terror."

''Notwithstanding their litany of complaints against the Congress, they have been wedded to the Indian way of life. They have done nothing whatsoever to undermine the Constitution or repudiate the Nehruvian consensus on secular democracy.'' Author

With due respect to the author, it is not accepted by the others that Muslims did not play any role. The author is silent of Islamic terrorism what Muslims are propagating all over the world. BJP in 1982 had only two seats, and today they have 282 seats. It did not happen overnight and whole of India did not become RSS faithfuls.

Mr.Tariq Ali did his own survey among the whites in UK, and he found more than half the people think as terrorist when they meet a Muslim. (socialistworker magazine). 

Majority has the responsibility to make sure minority is secure and feel a part of the wider society. Minority also has the responsiblity to make sure the majority do not feel scared by the minority.It is a two way street. Obligation works both ways.

No Muslim country, barring a few, are secular. Why it is the responsiblity of the Hindus to keep the country secular when all others are just doing the opposite. 

When muslims are in a minority, they cry for secularism. When they are a majority, they do sharia.

No sensible Muslim is doing that. Only mullahs, jihadis and sanghis like yourself insist on literalistic reading of every verse. ANWAAR, DALLAS, UNITED STATES

Anwaar, you are right when you say that religious texts should not be interpreted as literary meaning. Each of those verses have some historical backgrounds and they should be judged on that basis. But the problem is most Maulanas, in public and private, interpret their litearry meanings only when they talk. All the Islamic channels also do the same. Most Muslims read their holy book on a regular basis and they believe every word of it, and they feel it is true all the time. For others, the numbers are very small. Therein lies the problem.   Being more religious does not mean the muslims are very honest people. Quite the contrary, I find very few muslims who are tolerant towards others, and who are impeccable honest when it comes to money matters.    One can look at the UK prison statistics which are published every year and you will know what I mean. I do not understand this contradiction. Please explain.

Thought provoking:
This alleged conversation recounted by an unidentified writer, transpired several decades ago _When asked how many German people were true Nazis, the answer a German aristocrat prior to World War 2 gave, can guide our attitude toward fanaticism. "Very few people were true Nazis," he said, "but many enjoyed the return of German pride, and many more were too busy to care. I was one of those who just thought the Nazis were a bunch of fools. So, the majority just sat back and let it all happen. Then, before we knew it, they owned us, and we had lost control, and the end of the world had come."
 

Transport these thoughts to our present day pluralistic Democratic Indian Republic with latent simmering communal tensions that could flare up uncontrollably under a brute majority Hindu government, and it triggers a chilling point of view.
 

We are told again and again by professional "talking heads" that Hinduism is a religion of inclusive brotherhood and that the vast majority Hindus just want to live in peace. Although this unqualified assertion may be true, under the change of guard at the centre, it is entirely extraneous. It is trivially meant to make the insecure feel better, and meant to somehow diminish the specter of Hindutva fanatics rampaging across the Indian subcontinent in a majoritarian shift of revival of Hindu pride. The worrisome underlying fact is that hard-liners who subscribe to a divisive ideology of a Hindu Rashtra, hold the reins of governance in Indian Democracy at this moment in our nation’s history.
 

Fringe elements from the Sangh Parivar affiliated to the fundamentalist RSS, the rigidly communal parent organisation of the new elected government, forge ahead in unconstitutional activities of omission and commission, without fear of censure or law of land. It is these zealots who fan any one of myriad communal tensions nationwide. It is these bigots who systematically endeavour to provoke minorities or tribal groups throughout India by pushing them into a corner, and are brazenly attempting to engulf the entire subcontinent in a saffron wave. The hard quantifiable fact is that the "peaceful majority," are cowed and silent, while corporate owned "hushed media" and self-seeking “crony capitalists” are treading cautiously. All the more alarming when a Hindutva ideologue inclined incumbent PM has switched to a disturbing mute mode even when his colleagues and party cadres in and out of Parliament continue espousing their not so hidden agenda with emboldened vigour, as audaciously advocated by RSS Honcho.

Viewed against a backdrop of surging radical Islamic militia out to theocratically brush States in the neighbouring landscape, this is a wake-up call for all Indians/Political Parties with conscience in right place and rooting for our Secular Constitutional legacy, to act in unison if we do not wish to witness the end of our vibrant robust Democracy and the start of a new dark age for India…….

The majoritarian project to subvert the very democratic tradition that India stands for should be nipped in the bud.

The creation of Pakistan is the best thing to have happened to India. If nothing else, it has ensured the existance and relative safety of Hindus, Buddhists, Christians and other non-Muslims in a secular India. Why, it has even ensured that Muslims like the Ahmadis, Memons and Shias, considered Kaffirs and butchered in Pakistan, have thrived and prospered in India. In an undivided India, fundamentalist nutcases like the Taliban, Hafiz Saeed, Hamid Gul and Mullah Omar would have been Indian, and would have made life hell for everyone else.

If Pakistan is the only country to which you can compare India  your standards are too low.

>> "ancestors of these savages invaded India 1000 years ago."

Rubbish! Such savages could not have ruled India for 700 years. The so called Caliphate of these savages has its days numbered!

D.L.Narayan,

>> "ask themselves as to why a religion that claims to be peaceful is capable of inspiring such violence, such inhumanity."

Religions have been known to ispire even burning of widows and human sacrifice. Euroean Christians brought two extremely bloody crusades to Jerusalem. Such subhuman tendencies have not yet been eradicated by religions. Only fools would take a "holier than thou" attitude in the midst of such an unholy mess. Almost all Muslim religious leaders who have spoken about ISIS have condemned it as being un-Islamic, sinful and criminal. Religiois supremacists however will use this as an occasion to gloat!

Saachbolo,

>> "Why attribute such violence and hatred to God and defame him ?"

No sensible Muslim is doing that. Only mullahs, jihadis and sanghis like yourself insist on literalistic reading of every verse.

Indian Muslims unequivocally condemn brutal atrocities of ISIS

Here is the full list of signatories: - Anwaar

How nice! These "well meaning" intellectuals now claim (or Anwaar does on their behalf) to speak for Indian Muslims. What about those who demonstrate on the streets and wear ISIS T-shirts to show their support? Or the Urdu Press which lauds ISIS as the saviour of Islam? Oh wait. These people aren't Indian Muslims, but dropped in from another planet.

This is the same rubbish we keep hearing. The "liberal, moderate" Muslims voice their opposition to ISIS in TV studios and news conferences. The rank and file voice their support by rioting in the streets.

I posted a link some time ago that more British Muslims have joined ISIS that are in the British Army. TSays a lot doesn't it?

"Prime minister Narendra Modi remains an enigma. Hardly a day passes without some mantra or 10-point programme being passed on to the senior, responsible citizens to enable them to become more efficient bureaucrats, policemen or entrepreneurs. Sometimes, what is suggested sounds trite, but one knows it is deadly serious. Indians need to be treated as grown-ups. They don’t have to be spoon-fed."

VM seems to have missed the whole point. We Indians behave like spoilt and uncouth brats and not like "responsible citizens." We need to be told to come to the office in time, to be truthful and honest, to obey traffic rules, not to spit or urinate in public, not to litter, to stand in queues..... And it makes such a big difference when a neta no less than the PM exhorts us from the ramparts of Red Fort on Independence Day to behave ourselves. More netas should touch on such "trite" matters more often when addressing the public.

"Being a woman in India is unsafe. Being a Muslim in India is even more unsafe." - Anwaar 

Muslims in India are far safer than Muslims in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq or Palestine.

If one looks at the demographic profile of India since the 1951 census, the population percentile of Muslims has nearly doubled and that of the Hindus has actually come down. A Muslim is safer than a Hindu in India.

"Over-reaction to an irritant

Editorial, The Hindu"

"What is really interesting is the reader's reaction to the edit. The Hindu paper gets creamed royally by its readers."

That is what I do for the links that are posted by Anwar. The reader reaction is always far more interesting and informative.

I dread to think what hindus, jains, buddhists, sikhs have gone through when ancestors of these savages invaded India 1000 years ago. It would have been far worse than what is happening today to the yezidi minorities in Iraq.

" The culprit is not a Muslim."

" ISIS is against the spirit of Islam"

"Terror has no religion"

After each gory incidence of violence, the apologists of Islam rush to dissociate themselves. 

What these worthies fail to do is to introspect, to ask themselves as to why a religion that claims to be peaceful is capable of inspiring such violence, such inhumanity, why it has spawned so many terrorist groups everywhere, be it the IS, Boko Haram, Al Qaeda, the Talibans, the Lashkars and Jaishes, the Mujahideen and the Razakars, all of whom claim the sanction of religion and quote from their scriptures to justify their despicable acts.

The beheading of Daniel Pearl is not the first of its kind and the decapitation of James Foley is definitely not the last.

The apologists will talk of injustice, of Kashmir, of Palestine, of Iraq, of Afghanistan, of Gujarat 2002, Narendra Modi, western imperialism, the early battles for survival of a nascent religion, etc., etc. Carrying the cross of victimhood comes easily to them.

All of them are intellectually dishonest. They do not admit that there are indeed several passages in the Quran, the ultimate source of religion, which are nothing but exhortations to violence to achieve religious objectives. There are several which are ambivalent. The killing of infidels is deemed to be a religious duty, an act of merit which guarantees a place in a hedonistic paradise.

What needs to be done is for the Islamic countries to convene a conclave of the most reputed Islamic scholars to brainstorm and excise all those passages which go against the true spirit of Islam. 

Until that happens, beheadings, suicide bombings and sundry acts of terrorism will be a part of the daily news. That is the sad reality of life today - the 7th century continues to exert an influence on the 21st, negating the progress humankind has made in the intervening period.

Is there a reason why India needs to obsess over Muslims, even after they hacked off India to create Pakistan. No other country obesseses over Muslims like India does. If Vinod Metha wants to obssess over Muslims he is free to do so, but don't drag 1.2b Indians into Muslim obssession. Whatever happens they will always be unhappy
