" While it is impossible to take the poison and prejudice out of your mind, here is that speech, delivered on August 11, 1947:"

Perfect example of duplicity. After running a successful, violent and rabidly communal movement for the creation of a land of the pure, he shamelessly declares his secular credentials. 

Reminds me of an Urdu proverb. Nau sau chuhe khake billi Haj ko chali. In case, like your hero, Jinnah, you don't know Urdu, it means that after eating 900 mice, the cat embarked on a Haj pilgrimage.

Media is not getting any information from the govt. Their 'sources' are drying up. They are desperating trying to invent, spread news and rumours. Arnab looks frustrated and blabbers nonsense endlessly.

These prim, sophisticated, touch-me-not puritans can hardly be expected to seriously discuss hygine, sanitization, health, filth, garbage, sewage,toilet issues. At best they can do is nit-picking, secular-communal endless discussions which does not require knowledge or indepth research. Just be prejudiced and take side and viola!

Jinnah was as big a criminal as any Nazi criminal. Islamic ideology towards non-muslims and Hindus in particular in Indian subcontinent, in all areas where muslims have been in majority, has been more brutal in practice  , than Nazi German to Jews.

Wiping out non-muslim Hindus and Sikhs, from 22% of population in 1947 to 1% today was made possible by Muslim league, Islam inspired hate of non-muslims. To know how Jinnah and Muslim league carried out the genocide of Hindus and Sikhs, read what the dalit minister in Jinnah Liaqat cabinet had to say in his resignation lettter in 1950.

If this imbecile Pranay Sharma had followed the news and had an ounce of empathy for all the Indian citizens affected by pakistani terrorism aimed at Indians, he would have known this before writing this farticle.

". The tough stance that India has taken on the links of the Pakistan establishment with the Hurriyat conveys that it is not going to be “business as usual” with Pakistan, especially if it continues with ceasefire violations while abetting terrorism in India and threatening our diplomatic missions and nationals in Afghanistan."

This is the considered view of a professional ex-diplomat who has actually dealt with Pakistan. Low IQ imbeciles like Pranay Sharma and the cretins in the Indian journalist community should pay attention to reality instead of pretending that their delusions are "good diplomacy"

http://www.thehindubusinessline.com/opinion/columns/g-parthasarathy/fantasising-about-peace-with-pakistan/article6357260.ece?homepage=true

The first paragraph demonstrates what is wrong why Pranay Sharma's moronic intellectual drool.

"Diplomatic engagement with a neighbour having territorial ambitions and an abiding desire to alter the balance of power has to be carefully planned and executed. Apart from realistically assessing the balance of military and economic power, one has also to carefully assess the neighbour’s internal political equations, and whether the political and army leadership have the inclination and the will to live at peace, without resorting to terrorism as an instrument of state policy."

DC,

>> " Quran has very explicit passages that give lesser rights to non-Muslims. References of "Kafir", " Zizya" tax etc.

Not according to scholars. Lesser rights apply only to those who make war with the Muslim community. Kafir applies only to those who pretended to be Muslims but conspired against Muhammad behind his back. Muslims paid Zakat tax and were liable to be drafted in the army. Hindus paid Jizya tax and were not liable to be drafted. This was much less inhumane than what went on in many other societies. The rule now that all progressive Muslims support is equal rights and responsibilities for all citizens, but the entrenched power brokers are not going to be easy to displace.

A foolish oversimplification! The premise was fear of Hindu domination, and the fear that Islamic culture and faith would be undermined and demonized. Therefore one Hindu majority state and one Muslim majority state were conceptualized. Not the best solution, but that is the only one that both parties agreed to!

D.L.Narayan,

>> >> "Jinnah in his speech to Pakistan's Constituent Assembly in August 1947 clearly visualized a secular state with no distinctions based on religion."

"Pure, unadulterated bullshit."

While it is impossible to take the poison and prejudice out of your mind, here is that speech, delivered on August 11, 1947:

"We should begin to work in that spirit and in course of time all these angularities of the majority and minority communities, the Hindu community and the Muslim community, because even as regards Muslims you have Pathans, Punjabis, Shias, Sunnis and so on, and among the Hindus you have Brahmins, Vashnavas, Khatris, also Bengalis, Madrasis and so on, will vanish. Indeed if you ask me, this has been the biggest hindrance in the way of India to attain the freedom and independence and but for this we would have been free people long long ago. No power can hold another nation, and specially a nation of 400 million souls in subjection; nobody could have conquered you, and even if it had happened, nobody could have continued its hold on you for any length of time, but for this. Therefore, we must learn a lesson from this. You are free; you are free to go to your temples, you are free to go to your mosques or to any other place or worship in this State of Pakistan. You may belong to any religion or caste or creed that has nothing to do with the business of the State. As you know, history shows that in England, conditions, some time ago, were much worse than those prevailing in India today. The Roman Catholics and the Protestants persecuted each other. Even now there are some States in existence where there are discriminations made and bars imposed against a particular class. Thank God, we are not starting in those days. We are starting in the days where there is no discrimination, no distinction between one community and another, no discrimination between one caste or creed and another. We are starting with this fundamental principle that we are all citizens and equal citizens of one State. The people of England in course of time had to face the realities of the situation and had to discharge the responsibilities and burdens placed upon them by the government of their country and they went through that fire step by step. Today, you might say with justice that Roman Catholics and Protestants do not exist; what exists now is that every man is a citizen, an equal citizen of Great Britain and they are all members of the Nation. Now I think we should keep that in front of us as our ideal and you will find that in course of time Hindus would cease to be Hindus and Muslims would cease to be Muslims, not in the religious sense, because that is the personal faith of each individual, but in the political sense as citizens of the State."

This Wajahat Habibullah is speaking the American point of view, but it is entirely the fault of the Manmohan Singh government that traitorous scumbags like Wajahat Habibullah are considered to be spokespersons for Indian interests. Wajahat is an Indian IFS officer and a grovelling vermin of the lowest order.

"Kashmir problem is a inherently a Hindu Muslim problem."

Only a true blue Paki would have such a sentiment. The instrument of accession that was signed by all other states to be part of the Indian union was also signed by J&K in 1947.

It is the pakis who were aided and abetted by the kashmiri muslim bigots to ethnically cleanse Kashmir in 1990 that want it to be "hindu muslim problem" so that they could prove that the two-nation theory is valid. Unfortunately for pakis, their own country is now a shithole infested with terrorists and lowlives of the worst sort because they wanted to be the "fortress of islam", and apparently they have succeeded. Pakistan is how a "fortress of islam" would look like.

Mr.Pranay Sharma's low IQ seems to obscure the reality that Indian PM Modi is asserting the will of the nation when he asks for reciprocity and the end of duplicitous behavior from pakistan. All that the likes of Mr. Sharma and low IQ brethren in the Indian media need to do is observe how he is treating BAngladesh and other neighbours in a qualitatively different manner than Pakistan, which has every intention of "talking peace" while continually shelling on the border and sending in terrorists to India.

Maybe Indians are confused by what it means to be a statesman since the only such "statesman" they now is the self-serving egotistical Jawaharlal Nehru that sold out the country to look all "Statesmanly".  A leader who does not preserve his country's interests at all times is no statesman -- the only true measure of a statesman is if he uses the power vested in him to push the country's interests ruthlessly and without fear.  Mr. Modi certainly seems to be doing that.

They underwrite an exclusivist grammar of “difference” in the intimate regimes of love and marriage. Simultaneously, images of the passive, victimised Hindu women at the hand of inscrutable Muslims silence and erase female subjectivity and desire. Any possibility of women exercising their legitimate right to love, choice and conversion is marginalised."
