It is a fashion to run down Hindus (Organiser, 7.10.2012); ‘Narad’s’ Media Watch in Organiser throws light on the roasting of fifty odd women and children in the Sabaramati Express coach. What an irony, sadly shows that the coward Hindus have not reacted strongly to this carnage. Carnage by a section of fundamentalists practicing a faith born from the tip of a sword, honed and sharpened over the years treading the path of turbulence and terror. Media has spoken and written about Naroda Patiya but not Godhra. Why?. Godhra represents Hindus Karsevaks who were burnt to cinders and to add insult to injury, the Gujarat High Court says “Naroda Patiya killings were unparalled in modern history”! How can a Hindu not realise that these fundamentalists harbour such visceral feelings of hatred towards all Hindus? Diplomacy is laughable. Talks are useless. Any number of visits by our foreign minister to Pakistan or opening the gates of Wagha Border wider and wider will only end up in bringing more terrorists into our motherland and increase in incidents of terrorism. Fundamentalists are not angels. Hindus ought to be wary and alert and our intelligent agencies more vigilant for the extremist tribe is growing stronger and larger in number over the years. They are just collecting arms and sharpening swords and spreading their tentacles to intimidate Hindus. The Centre is sitting pretty nonchalantly, unperturbed and just planning to catch power in 2014 yielding to the whims and fancies of Muslims. The article by ‘Narada’ will remain evergreen in our memories for on that fateful day women and children were roasted alive in Godhara.

Guruji’s non-conflicting formula for minority assimilation (Organiser, 14.10.2012); This refers to the article by Shri S Gurumurthy, ‘Guruji’s non-conflicting formula for minority assimilation’ regarding formula for minority assimilation in Organiser. Everybody knows that this formula failed miserably, which resulted in creation of Pakistan as a separate homeland for the Muslims (now two homelands). Not only that, Muslims have already liquidated almost entire Hindu and Sikh population from their homelands of Pakistan and Bangladesh, and have doubled their population in Hindu’s homeland, the truncated India. It is strange, that we still go on chanting ‘Assimilation of minorities’, and go on befooling the Hindus, and wasting time on failed theories. The only solution to the minority problem is, that India should be made a homeland for the Hindus (including Sikhs, Jains, Buddhists, etc.), just as Pakistan is homeland for the Muslims, as per thinking of Jinnah, Muslim League and Britishers. In this connection, I would like to quote Dr BR Ambedkar. He writes on page-238 of his book Pakistan or the Partition of India, that “It (i.e. menance) is sure to last as long as the Hindus and Muslims are required to live as members of the one country under the mantle of a single constitution, which make the Hindus a menance to the Muslims and Muslims a menance to the Hindus. Pakistan liberates both the Hindus and the Muslims from fear of enslavement of and encroachment against other.” It is a pity, that while Dr. Ambedkar could see the reality before creation of Pakistan, but we still refuse to see the facts even after creation of Pakistan.

Pawar Inc. tries to outperform Sonia Inc. (Organiser, 7.10.2012); This with reference to the front page article in Organiser, ‘Pawar Inc. tries to outperform Sonia Inc.’ Normally farmers in Maharashtra treat Sharad Pawar as their own man and are still under the impression that he has done a lot for the welfare and development of farmers and agriculture at large. Sharad Pawar also took it for granted that his political future is evergreen. But the cover page article in The Week, titled ‘Sharad Pawar’s Minister in Rs 40,000 crore mystery’; India Today cover page story ‘Sharad Pawar Inc why Anna Hazare named Pawar’ and your current article titled ‘Congress-NCP loot’ have exposed the real corrupt character of NCP. There is a big list of scandals carefully documented by various NGO’s and whistle-blower Vijay Pandhare. This itself is enough to be taken as FIR and punish these corrupt characters. What really stuns the aam aadmi is that several crores have gone from exchequer to Pawar’s clan since more than a decade and Central government is watching this silently. Our ‘Lame duck’ PM has maintained treacherous silence which is a grave crime. Being unable to bear the public pressure and media humiliations Ajit Pawar listened to his “Inner Voice” and resigned after swindling several lakh crores since a decade. What cheating and dishonesty! Shame on Ajit and his clan (NCP) National Corrupt Party. This story also has a practical morale to learn, as long as one is in or with ruling alliance he has a licence to loot and be glorified instead of being humiliated or jailed. In case one is not with Congress, example Jagan Mohan Reddy of Andhra Pradesh, he will be first sent of jail and politically victimised till the person bends in favour of Congress. I appreciate the boldness and national spirit of whistle blower Vijay Phandhare and other NGOs who have filed PIL files against these competitors of corruption. I request judiciary to come out openly against corruption and promote national interests.

Intriguing history of Islamic dictators of Arabia (Organiser, 14.10.2012); Apropos of the review of the book titled The Rise and Fall of Arab Presidents for Life in Organiser, I may be pardoned to correct the headline you have given to the review. The words Islamic dictators of Arabia is intriguing and amounts to denigration of Islam. The dictators raised in Egypt, Tunisia, Libya, Yemen, Iraq and Syria were patronised by the colonial powers Britain, Italy, France and Russia (Formely Soviet Union). They were nominally ‘Muslims’ and had no traces of Islamic system of life in their private or public lives. Even the Arab Spring Dawning over the Arab World was partially exploited by them as happened in Libya, and now vividly seen in Syria. If these dictators swore in the name of the Almighty God or took the oath of allegiance in name sake of Islam, it was all hypocrisy worst than infidelity. They were not serious about Islam, Prophet Muhammad nor faithful to the Muslim community world over. They worshipped ‘the God of their own vested interests’.

Visit was of ulterior motive According to Indian ethics the visit of devotees to temples and monasteries is supposed to be selfless or in simple terms without expecting anything in return. This is a simple doctrine. As far as madam Soniya Gandhi’s visit to great reverend seer Dr Shiv Kumar Swamyji of Siddhaganga Math at Tumkur in Karnataka was concerned it was completely politically motivated in general and to restrain the solid support extended to the BJP by the powerful Lingayat community in north Karnataka in particular which alienated Congress party and solidly stand behind BJP. This is Congress’s main stomach and headache. To get rid of these obstacle in its way the Congress has been pathetically striving to regain its lost sympathy and backing of that community by keeping it’s eyes on ensuing 2013 Assembly elections in Karnataka.
