Anwaar, there are many bad things in hindu society and people do comment on that. And those hindus are never afraid of their lives because they know they will not be killed. A Dalit professor has written WHY I AM NOT A HINDU  and he had given many interviews why he thought like that. Nobody threatened him or tried to kill him. But Muslims, sorry to say, cannot take any criticism lightly. Can you imagine a muslim writing a similar book such as WHY I AM NOT A MUSLIM. That muslim guy will be killed instantly, and there will be a lot of violence.

Any logical thinking people will tell you religion was created by Man. That is why in all religious text books you will find many verses and sermons which are inconsistent with modern society. But these texts reflect their minds of that age and time. But Muslims believe Islam was specially created by God. And that is why, Muslims feel, all other religions are nowhere as good as Islam.

The whole thing is a joke. Here we have a Cm who dreams of ruling the country but does not have the ability to rule one state. And then she abuses the PM for telling some unpleasant truth.

Saini,

>> " you can find Indian Hindus who are to sympathetic to the plight of Palestinians."

True, but not Hindutvawadis. Not the "Internet Hindus".

D.L.Narayan,

>>>> "There is plenty of Hindu dirty linen to be washed judging by the daily city news of our newspapers"

>> "That is how it should be. Things will not change if everything is swept under the carpet."

Then why don't you and Ghai start writing about the rape epidemic, the persistence of untouchability in our villages, the increasing intolerance and violence of RSS spawned groups, the falsification and trivialization of Indian history by sanghis like Dinanath Batra and Y.S. Rao instead of bringing in Muslim laundry from far away places?

D.L.Narayan,

>>>> " Tweeting, "“Only the Gujarat model, that worked from 2002 in containing their rioting elements, can work. Apply across Bharat,” is inflammatory, hate-inciting and aimed at communalizing the atmosphere.

>> "The mistake is in saying worked FROM 2002. It should say AFTER the 2002 riots. After 2002 riots, Gujarat has done remarkably well."

After the nation-wide and world-wide condemnation that Modi's Bajrangis received  in 2002, they would think twice, no 20 times, before they start another bloody massacre in Gujarat.

That should earn him at least a governorship!

Bangalorean

I do not take the villagers into consideration because we can always blame poverty and illiteracy for their habits.

Do you travel by long distance trains in air conditioned compartments? Check the toilets used by affluent passengers.

Did you notice how people throw their garbage in the most upscale sections of any large Indian city? Did you notice how people spit on the sidewalks from the passing BMWs? 

Did you experience the morning commute by any Churchgate or VT bound Mumbai suburban train keeping both your eyes and nose open to the human activities along the tracks? 

Are we talking about poor, uneducated people? It is a cultural issue with all Indians - urban and rural, rich and poor alike.

This sordid story seems to be like wheels within wheels. Gang rape of a six year old girl! Those guilty must be severely punished.

Historians slam Dina Nath Batra's books

Leading Indian historians on Monday slammed former school teacher and activist Dina Nath Batra's books which have been recommended as secondary reading in Gujarat schools, saying they were nothing but works of “fantasy”. Batra uses stories of saints and demons to interpret history and includes historically inaccurate, and sometimes politically incorrect, anecdotes such as a story about a royal couple being blessed with children only after devoted cow-worship.

“The contents are so absurd that any reaction would seem superfluous … it was an insult to the people of Gujarat that their children were being exposed to this “nonsense”."

“Young minds are being exposed to misinterpretations of the past and even the present...... the issue should not be reduced to a debate of left versus right..... The point here is whether the person has any semblance of scholarship, any track record.”

Ideology as a cover for political agenda: New ICHR Chief is a Communal Ideologue

by Ram Puniyani,


Prof. Y. Sudarshan Rao, not much known for his academic accomplishments in the discipline of History, has been appointed as the chief of ICHR (Indian Council for Historical Research). As per him the “Most of the questionable social customs in the Indian society as pointed out by the English educated Indian intellectuals and the Western scholars could be traced to this period of Muslim rule in north India spanning over seven centuries.” He argues that “The (caste) system was working well in ancient times and we do not find any complaint from any quarters against it.”

Had Prof Rao done some rational study in to untouchability, caste system and other practices, which were criticized by many during rising Indian national movement, he would have known that caste system’s adverse effects were not due to the rule of Muslim kings, but were inherent in scriptures, which reflected social system of that time. As such the social arrangement of that time gradually got transformed into hereditary system. With this purity-pollution came in; an accompaniment much before the advent of rule of Muslim kings.

Good article to keep anti Modi rants happy. Modi came to power thanks to his critrics. He cares two pence for those who have given the verdict in two months. In the meantime, govt will pick up the pace and u all eat crow. Which has become a gourmet dish of many.
