Rightly observed by Mr. Christophe Jaffrelot a Paris based Sociologist in his article “A Skewed Secularism?” ‘India is becoming an ethnic democracy where its minorities are regarded as second class citizens’. As I understand, on paper constitutionally India is a Secular, Sovereign Republic. Nevertheless, the fact is different; Indian Government is working on the agenda of Saffron Forces, and unable to take action on RSS & Co or Sangh Parivar. Indian secular image is merely a phobia Muslims and minorities; it is good, just to show international community that we are secular; we are taking care of Minorities. In fact, Indian public as well as public servants are communally biased.
Partition of India into several parts in 1947 is the biggest example of communal theory. Because Vallabh Patel who was the biggest supporter of Hindu Mahasabha and RSS wanted, first Prime Minister would be a Hindu rather than a Muslim. Other hardliners & Hindu groups supported that theory. It looks that Muslims have no contribution for independence of India. Principally British took charge from Mugals who were Muslims; they should handover the charge of the country to Muslims only. But Patel was adamant to his theory and issue cannot resolved amicably and India bifurcated into several parts. That communal theory got strength in the year 1984 of Sikh Massacre, 1992 Babri Masjid Demolition followed by countrywide communal violence and genocide of Muslims, 2002 Gujarat Muslim Genocide, and 2008 Kandhmal Orissa Christen Massacre. Minorities are not safe in India. For what we are claiming a secular nation.
After 1947, Hyderabad was the sovereign Nizam Estate. Because before 1947 a treaty was signed between Indian and Great Britain Politicians, wherein, it was decided amicably, that any state free to joint India or Pakistan or may remain independent. Nizam decided, better to remain independent and not to join India because of communal policies and hate campaign against Muslims, from Indian politicians. That decision of Nizam could not digest by Vallabh Patel the Deputy Prime Minister of India of that time. He sent Army violates the International War Law, killed uncountable innocent Muslims and Nizam Forces, captured Hyderabad and includes Nimzam Estate in India now Hyderabad is one of the Indian City, wherein Hindus are in majority and Muslims are in minority, RSS the Hindu terrorists organisation's head quarter is in Hyderabad. In fact, heavy penalty economically or socially would had been imposed on India at that time only.
India always claims that Pakistan is the hub of terrorist’s organizations and safe haven for the terrorists. Do India is not the hub of Hindu terrorist like VHP, Bajrang Dal, RSS, Abhinav Bharat and political wing supporting to them like BJP, Shiv Sena. An open arms training has been given to these Hindu Terrorists. Demonstration of leathal arms is normal practice at the time of Dassera, Rana Pratap Jayanti in BJP Ruled State.
RSS members in Indore demonstrated with lethal weapons on 31st Oct. 2010. No action has been taken by the Congress led Union Government of India or BJP led MP State Government. Public ally demonstration of lethal weapons and march pass of RSS members like Army Jawans has become a common practice in BJP ruled states. Demonstration of lethal weapons like Rifles, sword, Trishool, Bhala, Ballam, by RSS members is common practice which is against the constitution of India. Hindus in India are communally biased advocating Ram Rajya i.e. Hindu Rashtra. Government is puppet of saffron elements though showing its secular structure.
Not only public, but also the Judiciary, Police, Army and Administrative Staff are under the influence of Saffron Elements & communally biased. Long awaited judgment of 6 decades has come out on 30/09/2010, which opens the influence of saffron elements on Indian Judiciary. Lucknow bench of Allahabad High Court delivered the Judgment about 2.5 acares land of Babri Masjid at Ayodhya. It is not surprising that once again the judgment goes against the Muslims and appeasing the Hindus. Merely one-third land has allotted to Muslims that means Muslims are on the Charity of Judiciary. Remaining judgment favours the Hindus including removing of Idol Ramalala, temple demolished by Babar and it is the birthplace of Lord Rama & so on.
The culprits of demolition of Babri Masjid 1992, & post Babri mayhem, politicians and Hindu Hooligan are not convicted in the long 3 decades, but court shows promptness to punished March 1993 Bombay Bomb Blasts activists. Same as Gujarat Muslims Genocide Narendra Modi and Co. is enjoying the support of Government and alleged Godhera culprits Muslims has been convicted.
Supreme Court of India appointed Special Investigation Team to probe the role of Narendra Modi in Gujarat 2002 Muslim’s Genocide & crime against humanity. After finding the facts, SIT summoned Modi for his role in Gujarat Muslim’s Genocide. That means he is not innocent and he is culprit for the communal riots 2002. After the inquiry of about 16 to 17 hours Modi was not arrested and let off. After two three days, then Chief Justice of Supreme Court of India Mr. K.G. Balakrishnan, went to Ahmadabad and shared the dais with Narendra Modi.
It is time India should stop its anti-Muslims polices and encouraged its Judiciary, Army, Police and Administrative staff to behave like all-Indians are same. Media should understand responsibility and it is not mere Hindu media. Democracy and secularism are not mere propaganda stuff; they have to practice quite sincerely. India must let the Muslim organizations function at par with Hindu organizations that have successfully spread their poisonous tentacles, under Indian state patronage, not only across the country but even in foreign countries including Jammu Kashmir, now under Indian military occupation. India must reconstruct the Babri Mosque at the very site where it stood.
India must consider Muslims as equal citizens and not as second-class citizens as they do now and give them all benefits at par with Hindus.
