Chindu's own jihad

The Hindu : National : The jihad in “God’s Own Country”
why residents of States with no history of large-scale communal pogroms, like Kerala and Karnataka, are contributing cadre to Islamist terror groups.
Lets take this at the face value for the moment -- there is no communal violence in Kerala and Karnataka.
In 1990, angered by the religious discrimination he encountered in Mumbai, Basheer joined SIMI full-time.
Chindu is implying anger due to discrimination leads to terrorism. Do we not see widespread terror attacks by the severely oppressed lower castes.
Kamakutty, a computer engineer-turned terrorist held in Bangalore last month, is known to have worked closely with Lashkar commander Muhammad Faisal Khan, a key organiser of bombings in Mumbai during 2002-2003.
Kamakutty lived in the Kerala and Karnata, the same place where, the author claims, there is no discrimination or communal violence. Oops! Wait a minute. There are other reasons.
How does one account for the growth of Islamist terror networks in Kerala? One important point is that most of SIMI’s key leaders in Kerala worked or studied elsewhere — thus encountering communal discrimination of an intensity unknown in the State itself.
Yes, it is discrimination "elsewhere"; "anywhere" for that matter.
Highly educated, their access to the internet enables them to link local grievances to the larger, global jihadist movement.
Let me understand this clearly: Education leads to jihad among Muslims. We know illiteracy leads muslims to violence. That leaves us with not much choice, does it.
Religious neo-conservatism has been seen by some Jamaat-e-Islami ground-level leaders as a means of fighting the secular tide.
I absolutely love this one. Religious fundamentalism is a reaction to secularism. Hence Islamic terrorism is justified.

On a final note, consider the Moplah Rebellion.
Annie Besant stated: "They Moplahs murdered and plundered abundantly, and killed or drove away all Hindus who would not apostatise. Somewhere about a lakh (100,000) of people were driven from their homes with nothing but their clothes they had on, stripped of everything...Malabar has taught us what Islamic rule still means, and we do not want to see another specimen of the Khilafat Raj in India.
Kerala has a history of Islamist terrorism. It was a case of muslim aggression against the Hindus driven by extraneous motivations.

Yes. Kerala has a long history of Islamic intolerence and it has nothing to do with oppression. After the Moplah Riots in 1921, many such brutal incidents followed. One of them is the gruesome murder of Ramasimhhan and his family by islamists, in late 1940s.

In fact, today in Kerala, Hinuds are the ones who are being oppressed. Some parts of Kerala is as bad as an islamic country. Consider this example: Malayalam lovers wanted a statue of Ezhuthachan , the father of Malayalam language at his birthplace Tirur, which also happens to be in the Muslim dominated Malappuram district. But Muslims, who thinks statue is equivalent to an "idol" *did not allow* to have an Ezhuthachan statue in his brith place. Forget Hindus or BJP, this is Malayali suffering from Islamic intolerence. To quote from article of Dr. C.I Issac:

The issue of the erection of the statue of Tunchathu Ezhuthachan, father of Malayalam language and literature, at his birthplace Tirur, now a Muslim-dominated area, has once again proved the Muslim difficulty in stomaching an idol, as it is un-Islamic. Finally the issue was settled with the erection of a symbolic representation of an inkpot and brush, the official emblem of Jamaat-e-Islami, instead of his statue. It is true that Ezhuthachan, in his efforts at the poetical composition, used only stylus and palmyra leaf for writing on, he never used a pen or ink. What is the mental inclination behind this fanaticism?

Check out today's report on the clashes at CPIM office in New Delhi. It is of course expected that Comrade Ram would slant the story in favor of commies, but he has exceeded his own standards for brazenness. The context for the clashes doesn't figure in the report. The words 'kerala' and 'kannur' are NOT mentioned at all!

Xinhua is losing prime talent by letting it rot in the offices of the Mount Road Maha-Marxist.

Here's the latest example Chindu's perverted journalism: suppressing facts to help CPM

See the front-page news about the CPM office attack in Delhi:

and now, compare this with news appeared in other newspapers/tv channels.

After reading the Chindu report alone, a Chindu reader would wonder:

(i) In the first place, Why did BJP-RSS workers organize a protest march towards CPM office?
(ii) What is the BJP's take on this issue ?
(iii)Was it a one-sided attack ? Did any BJP-RSS workers also get injured ?

Poor Chindu reader will never get answers to these questions. Because the answers will make the CPM bosses unhappy.

Chindu supresses the following facts which is clearly stated in *ALL* other news papers/channels

(1) This was a direct fallout of Kannur killings, where CPM workers killed 5 BJP-RSS workers in the last 3 or 4 days, in Kannur Kerala, with the help of state machinery.

(2)It was not a one-sided attack. There was stone pelting, as a provocation, from the CPM office where many RSS/BJP workers also injured.

Obviously, as expected, Chindu never publishes the opinion of RSS/BJP leaders, which finds place in every other news papers.
