Intermittent posts

I am travelling. I have limited access to internet. So the posts will not be as frequent for the next one week.

According to Swapan Dasgupta: A reputed newspaper with Communist sympathies has, in defiance of all journalistic norms, even published a forged document, purporting to be a CID report, implicating the Gujarat Home Minister Amit Shah.

Now here is what the "reputed newspaper with Communist sympathies" got to say (in small print, of course):

The 24-page ``Facts of the Case'' was provided to our correspondent by a privileged source within the Bharatiya Janata Party on Friday...

It is now clear, as the Gujarat Government's response published here points out, that the 24-page document is not the Geetha Johri report. The Hindu retracts its front-paged assertion that the Johri report speaks of ``collusion of the State government'' and of the role of Mr. Amit Shah, Minister of State for Home; and also that it recommends a CBI enquiry. We deeply regret these serious errors in a story that drew on documents we relied upon in good faith. We agree that we should have verified the facts, especially those relating to the provenance of ``Facts of the Case,'' before publishing the news stories.

So, folks. It is not the mistake of the reporter (Neena Vyas) or Comrade-in-Chief. We are led to believe that Chindu was so easily fooled by a "privileged source within BJP".

A "reputed newspaper" on a self-appointed mission of non-stop daily pontification and fighting "evil communal forces" (a la Don Quixote), so easily fooled by a source from the enemy camp!

BTW, does Chindu also have "privileged sources" within other parties like CPM, so that we can get to hear "Facts of the Case" from Nandigram?

"Previleged source", my Left foot.

Quite evidently, The Hindu fabricated a "CID report" to sling mud on Gujarat government, and got caught Red-handed in the act.

As you sow, so you reap - the old adage goes. Chindu sows "Fake document" and rapidly reaps "Fake journalism"!

Or, more literary minded folks may call it a case of "Poetic justice".

A nice article from haindava keralam which i am reproducing it below for all the real secular people:

Letter to Seema Mustafa, Deccan Chronicle

Dear Ms. Seema Mustafa

This is with reference to your Saturday-Column "Silence of the state" in the 'Deccan Chronicle' dated 14th April 2007.

It has become a practice for the 'venemous secularists' of our country to cry foul over anything & everything, which is done for the cause of the Hindu majority. The moment the 'CD' issue hit the headlines, I knew that you would come out with your "rotten rants" on the Saturday's column and you have proved me right.

You have blamed the BJP for the so-called politics of hate & divisiveness. Had it been such a party, it would not have grown to such a great extent in such a short span of time. The 50 years of 'ruining' (not ruling) by the Congress party has paved the way for a truly nationalistic party like BJP to reach the top. The more than 50 years of minority appeasement by the Congies, Commies and the other Pseudo-secularists have caused the emergence of the truly Hindu party BJP. The more than 50 years of sustained 'anti-Hindu' (hence anti-National) campaign by the leftist intellectuals in the media has made the rightist BJP to rise in the political arena. Those 50 years not withstanding, the last 3 years of 'non-governance' & 'minority appeasement' by the UPA (Useless Pathetic Alliance) led by 'Italian' (not Indian) National Congress, aided & abetted by anti-Hindu (hence anti-National) pseudo-secular media has resulted in a country wide "Hindu anger", which has been visible since the Mumbai Elections.

The 'CD' material allegedly released by the BJP has been withdrawn immediately by them. The Congress & other 'P-sec' parties wanted to capitalize the situation, making a mountain out of a molehill by igniting communal emotions, ably supported by the hype given by the media. The 'CD' contained information on Madrasssas, Cow slaughter & Terrorism, which are not at all new to the people. Can you deny the fact that Madrassas teach only religious fanaticism and not Poetry, Mathematics or Modern Science? Can you refuse the fact that Muslims simply slaughter, suck the blood & eat the meat of "Cows", which are treated as 'God' by the Hindus? Will you be able to prove that Indian Muslims are not aiding & abetting the Pakistan & Bangladesh based terrorists? Can you deny the fact that SIMI, NDF, Al Umma & other organizations in India are terrorist organizations? The matter contained in the CD is true to everyone's knowledge and the Muslims are also aware of it. While the Muslim community preferred to be silent on the issue, it is only the media under the hands of people like you, which made a big issue out of it, making matters worse for the Congress & other p-sec parties, for their stupid misadventure boomeranged on them. The BJP cleverly played its cards well, for its advantage and now, the disgraced Election Commissioner; 'convert' Navin Chawla is in a real hot soup, deservedly. As the matter boomeranged, the Congress now says that it has never asked for the derecognition of BJP. What a shame!

In course of your essay, you have said that BJP is seeking to weaken the foundation of India through politics of hate. Please be informed that it was Nehru who laid the foundation of India through fake policies & hate politics, successively & successfully weakened by his own family & party men. But, what we (the Hindus) have in our mind is the 'ancient' Hindu foundation of Bharat and 'Macauley ka putris' like you may not understand the beauty & sanctity of it. And for the hundredth time you have talked about rape & murder in Gujarat (many of them were fake stories circulated by Seemas & Teestas and Roys & Medhas) without showing even an iota of remorse to the barbaric Godhra carnage. What is the point in harping about the 'effect', without refering to the 'cause'? Talking of rape & murder, let me remind you that the 'bloodiest' chapter in world history has been the Islamic Invasion of Bharat, where in, millions were raped, murdered & converted by the sword of God.

While the Babri Masjid remained only as an ordinary structure as prayers were never conducted there, your expression that it was a 'beautiful' monument is laughable. It was a disputed structure built after demolishing, not one but two beautiful Temples. The people, I mean the Hindus, of this country are very much aware that each & every Church & Mosque in this great Hindu country were built with the ruins of beautiful & sacred Temples after demolishing them. Yes, below each & every Mosque & Church you can find the remains of a Temple! When we have lost thousands & thousands of Temples in the last one thousand years, you are crying about a 16th century structure in Gujarat, which is yet to be demolished. There are many Mosques including the Prophet's tombs, dooms, etc, which are being demolished in Pakistan , Bangladesh & Saudi Arabia for the sake of Malls, Roads & other infra structures. Why you are not writing about them? When you can protest for Prophet's cartoons ( Denmark) and Saddam Hussain's hanging (Iraq), why can't you protest for Mosques outside India?

Also, for the 100th time you have mentioned Narendra Modi as an 'ugly Indian'. In Gujarat ruled by this ugly Indian, farmers are very happy and not even a single farmer has committed suicide. Girl children's educational status (including the Muslim girls) has increased to a great extent. Water & electricity have been supplied to all (100%) villages. The employment proportion of Muslims, vis-à-vis their population is the biggest in the country. Gujarat is the only place where the Muslim students sang Vandemataram without any inhibitions. Corruption in government & other PSUs is barest minimum. SEZs are established smoothly without any problems by adequately compensating the land owners. The FDI has increased by leaps & bounds in the last five years. Law & Order is the best in the country. The state has achieved so much, that too after a devastating earth quake & a big communal unrest. Having known all these things, if you continue to address him as an ugly Indian, it shows only the 'ugliness' in your mind and Modi is not going to lose anything because of your calling him names, but Deccan Chronicle may lose a good amount of readership, particularly because of your columns, as the TV ad of DC shows only Hindus as its customers and not anybody else.

In your columns regularly, you have been taking the causes of Maoists, Naxalites, Terrorists, extremists & pseudo secularists. So, let me put some questions to you:

What do you call the UPA's attempt to have a Muslim head-count in Armed Forces? Communal or Secular?

What is the UPA's announcement for Muslim quota in education & employment? Communal or Secular?

What was the call given by Manmohan that Muslims must have the first claim on our resources? Communal or Secular?

Is not the UPA communal when it delays the hanging of Afzal?

Was not the managed report of Sachar committee communal?

What do you say of Lalu using the managed Banerjee commission report during the Bihar elections? Communal or Secular?

Is Mulayam's support to SIMI, communal or secular?

What do you say of Paswan conducting a rally with the image of Osama Bin Laden? Communal or Secular?

What do you feel about Sonia's immature comments on RSS? Communal or Secular?

How Many times you have written about all these things? How many times you have written about the pathetic status of Kashmiri Pandits? How many times you have written about the persecution of minorities going on in Pakistan & Bangladesh? How many times you have written about the massacre of Hindus in J & K? How many times you have written about the perennial bomb blasts perpetrated by Pak based terrorists with the help of a section of Indian Muslims?

The 'secularism' adopted by leftist intellectuals like you have always been 'stinking' communal. Nothing 'right' would come out of a 'leftist' mind and nothing 'sane' would come out of a 'insane' mind.

Last but not the least, the problem with the Indian Muslims is simple. Clerics like Imam Bukhari and columnists like you. Both of you are doing enough damages to the community by supporting the useless pseudo secular parties. The Indian Muslims can come out of these problems easily. They should isolate the terror elements, refuse the clerics, ignore the intellectuals and throw out the pseudo secular parties. They should accept the 'common civil code' and join the mainstream respecting the feelings & aspirations of the majority community and work together for the prevalence of peace & harmony. They must realize that they were taken care of well by the 6 year NDA rule than the 50 year Congress rule.

They should also remove the felling that they had ruled this country for over 700 years once. Once that is done, the oppressive mindset & the turbulent mentality will vanish and life will be easier for them.

A Quotable Quote

The traditions of the Prophet emphasized knowledge, above all else. "Worship, without knowledge," it is said, "has no goodness in it, and knowledge without understanding has no goodness in it." And further, "Acquire knowledge: It enables its possessor to distinguish right from the wrong, it lights the way to heaven; it is our friend in the desert, our society in solitude, our companion when friendless - it guides us to happiness; it sustains us in misery; it is an ornament among friends and an armour against enemies."

These - and not the tyranny of the mullahs - were the values that produced Islam's golden age in history. Unless contemporary Islam rediscovers these essentials of the faith and is reformed at the most fundamental level, its decline will continue to its logical, inevitable and unfortunate conclusion.

If you really want to help the Muslim community, stop bashing the Hindus and concentrate on releasing the Muslims from the clutches of clerics and guide them to join the mainstream, because India is and will remain as a Hindu country and Hinduism is the only religion, which has an inbuilt, natural & true secularism.
