Re: India's Muslims in Crisis / Everyone talk openly about their caste and makes remark about other
Thanks for such enlightening and piercing stories which in my supposition are not correct. If you say that power exists with Brahmin fraternity alone is not true. I think that may be your hatred because of your personal experience with some brahmins but in entirety its not true. you have seen muslim president, sikh prime minister, many so called backward caste ( I do not say) primeministers and ministers still if you think that power is with Brahmins, I do not know how far its correct. If you see percentage of brahamins in power are very less. I do not mean to defend those politicians who has the only policy inherited from britishers "Divide and rule". They are like terrorist; they do not discriminate between anyone. Be it BJP or Cogress or any other party, all follows same rule to govern and stick to power. If you see political drama in Maharashtra its a sad story in the name of democracy.
Though I am not student of history but I do not agree that Babar and his ancestors e.g. tamurlang were ever invited by local people to come and rob them. Babar could not get power in Afganistan and therefore he tried to find a niche in form of India, which was weak with its local ruler politics. Another story of invitation of jews by BJP party is something never heard of. I do not know from where did you get this story. In my view, its baseless and should be considered a grapevine by extremist groups. Though BJP made hindutva as its political agenda in last election but it never did anything in favour of Hindus. I do not say its good party or bad party; one should go along or against thats matter of personal choice. I do not understand why this party has been labelled as party of hindus but many hindus including me do not like this party.
If you say Brahmins are ruling the society is also not true and I have seen brahmin dying because of hunger and begging. What about those brahmins who can not get job just because they are brahmins. Mandal commission and reservation did not try to fill the schism between lower and upper caste people but it rather increased it for political benefits. If you go to any college where reservation system is in place everyone talks openly about their caste and makes remark about other. People leaves more secluded to its own community and develop radical extremist thoughts. But I have also studied from a college (BITS, Pilani) where no reservation system has been implemented yet and believe me we did not know each other caste. I love such clean environment. In my view, reservation system should be given based on poverty and help them to get education but not to curb meritorious student.
Making such comments like, only musllims can save India will only invite more and more hatred and increase the gap in society. Dispelling democracy and making such remark sounds like extremist remarks. Its not matter of size of faith which should decide whether they are right or wrong. Everyone is human being and has right to define his or her own faith. If jews are only 13 million so they can not go to war and other religions has the right to go to war is how much justified. I believe no religiion is perfect and no one religion can vouch for it. Everyone who thinks logically will agree that we all (if not most of us) are by birth in a religion which we follow, not by choice. That means we all disagree at some point or other with our own religion. So, ideally we are not following our religion in true spirit.
War (or Jihad) can never be solution to anything that we are facing in India. It can be solved only when we all from all faiths, community join hands together to come and start solving problem rather than waiting for these corrupt politicians to divide us and rule. At least from us who are educated should purge these thoughts of hatred for another community.
thanks for your patience and I am sorry if unknowingly I made any comment which hurt you. I meant only to explain.
