So far, the minorities and Muslim believe that they were used by many political parties, whereas the majority of the state has only 5-8 per cent Muslim population and that too scattered. It was Hindu votes from which Congress ruled this country for so long, the Muslims were only extra supports. They were always displayed as getting appeasement from parties for votes but the real story is far from the truth. People will blame politicians, extremists for creating a barrier and a thick line of hatred between the people but it is a myth. Politicians or extremists just use people to create chaos and to disturb things. If people are united, there will be a few or no chance of hatred among people. Most of the people may hate Muslims across the globe because of the misconception and example available for terrorism.
There is no point in saying that Hindus are most tolerant or most liberal. There are few Hindus who hate Muslims, Christians, Buddhist, Sikhs, and even Dalits; they are haters just like the Muslims who hate Hindus, Christians, Jews, Druze, Ahmadis, etc. However, the fact is that most of the Hindus, who generally don’t hate Christians, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jews etc., do hate Muslims. People may deny, but we all know that there are Muslims in every state from North to South who burst crackers for Pakistan Cricket team, not because they understand bowling style of Shoaib Akhtar but because they hate India and believe Pakistan is their “real home”.
Speaking of politics, for a nation to be stable and happy, either majority should be Muslim or a negligible minority like less than 5 per cent should be Muslims. A large Muslim minority is really very unfortunate for any nation and especially for democracy. They demand Sharia compatibility and don’t respect civil laws. They always polarise the voting process by voting blindly en masse for their religious agenda and hatred. Now, Christianity and Islam both are similar from a Hindu point of view as originated in Arab, similar sagas, Abrahamic religions, etc.
However, has anyone heard of Christians bursting cracker or favoring English Cricket team? The Portuguese government has given many Goan Catholics Indian Citizenship but still, the “general population” will be proud of their “Indian” identity. There are Christians who “criticise” Modi Ji but they will certainly not vote for their hatred for PM Modi or BJP. They don’t believe in polarisation and don’t care to impose Catholic/Protestant doctrine in law. They vote for the candidates just like any other Hindu or Buddhist for that matter. Not only Hindus, most of the Christians, Jews, Animists, Buddhists, almost every major religion would prefer non-Muslim demography over Muslim demography, that’s a fact.
If we see, Muslims are one party in every major religious conflict. Why an illiterate factory worker from Dhaka, who can’t show Israel in the world map, hates Jews anonymously? Why Hindus from Nepal don’t join Bajrang Dal, Christians from the UK don’t join Anti-balaka, Buddhists from India don’t pledge blind support for Buddhists Military junta in Burma, but Muslims from UK, India, Nepal, and Burma join ISIS? That’s because Muslims as a community hate anything that they believe as a threat to Islam. What is Islam? For them, religion and Allah is above all, above nation, above country and above any faith.
Even Muslim as a religion is not at peace within, Sunnis say that Shias are not Muslims and hate them; Shias say Sunnis are not Muslims and hate them. Both of them say Ahmadis are not Muslims. All of them say that terrorists are not Muslims, those who fornicate are not Muslims, alcoholics and stock brokers are not Muslims etc. However, whenever a terrorist in Kashmir, New York, Gaza gets prosecuted all of these people come together, defending the faith.
Meanwhile, if we talk only about India, the hypocrisy of Muslims is being exposed many times. Muslims demanded separate Islamic nation from India. Hindus never demanded the Hindu nation and remained secular because Hindus were never afraid of Muslims. Muslims played this divide politics during partition also and took the support of some Dalit leaders and the first law minister of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan was a Dalit. What happened to them later is history. It’s Muslim who is always insecure because they are a minority but BJP and RSS projected as Muslims population will soon explode. Their boys are marrying our daughter; they are converting Hindus and spreading Islam. This is how RSS tried spreading fear in Hindus heart. The overgrown population of India is largely contributed by Muslims in its ratio.
Hindus were comfortable living with Muslim population but still, Muslims demanded the Islamic nation wherever they were in majority. In 1947, there was no partition of Kashmir, so stop peddling lies. Also, it is not necessary that in a partition all the states and geography gets divided. Wherever Muslims were in majority or near majority they went to Pakistan. Most of the ideologues of Pakistan were from Hindi heartland i.e. Bihar, UP, MP who settled there. If we look at the history, Muslims who remained in India post-partition were not by their choice but the choice of the majority here who wanted a secular nation i.e. Hindus. Dalit is a term created by foreign rulers that too Mughals also Muslims to divide Hindus and rule them. In our holy books, there’s no caste system based by birth. Muslims took Afghanistan, Pakistan, Bangladesh but the world knows where these countries are heading and where India is today compared to them. Muslims ruled India for 1,400 years because they preserved their religion, culture, and pride.
We may say Hindu-Muslim Bhai Bhai (brothers) but the reality is exactly the opposite. God knows when and how these difference going to be sorted out.
