Re: Jamia University to defend students held on terror charges
I am not defending Advani but I would like to say that if you call Advani a terrorist then the bigger terrorist is Babar and his entire military force which razed three major temples- Sri Krishna Temple at Mathura, Vishwanath Temple in Kashi and Rama Temple in Ayodhya, besides a number of other temples. It was not the Hindus who initiated such barbaric act first but the Muslim invaders. It were Hindus who wanted their religious places back and the BJP used the issue for political mileage.
For Dr Girish Mishra these places may not hold any value but for those who begin their day with Ram Johar (Ram-Ram or Jai Ramji Ki) and use the name of lord Rama at the time of performing last rites (Ram Naam Satya Hai), Rama is as important as their lives. They cannot ignore it. Imagine when pilgrims go to Ayodhya, Mathura or Kashi and are shown small shanty like spaces calling the birth place of Rama, Krishna or the Kashi Vishwanath Temple, how they feel. I once visited Hampi in Bellary district of Karnataka. The entire area is now a ruin. The muslim rulers did not spare a single place where they did not wreak havoc. There used to be a place called Hanumatpada Giri, a place where Hanuman is believed to have put his feet. The Muslims recently gave a new name to it by calling it 'Baba Adam Kadam Pahaad'. Tell me who is errupting communal tension in this case?

Senthil ha made a strong point. This can be supplemented with the argument between S.Gurumurthy & Javed Anand came in The New Indian Express.
