Secularism : Majority & Minority | Thursday, October 25, 2007

Latest Guest Blogger here is Sukumar Sundaram. He blogs at Suksy's Pensieve. This is what he's got to tell about himself
An introvert who is different from the crowd, who takes pride in being different and being unique, who tries to keep people happy but fails miserably coz of his own "introversy", who does not mind failures and who is happy @ all times, who reads anything and everything under the sun, who listens to all kinds of music and who survives on books, bikes, music and popcorn.. that's quite everything about me! :)
His post follows -

This post is not dedicated to anyone, and not against anyone. It is just a forwarded email which has been copied and pasted over here. I had posted earlier on the same topic and here i go again!

  • Do you consider that - Sanskrit is communal and Urdu is secular, Mandir is Communal and Masjid is Secular, Sadhu is Communal and Imam is secular, VandeMatharam is communal and Allah-O-Akbar is secular, Shriman is communal and Mian is secular, Hinduism is Communal and Islam is Secular?

  • Why Godhra is blown out of proportion, when no-one talks of the ethnic cleansing of 4 lakh Hindus from Kashmir?

  • When Christian and Muslim schools can teach Bible and Quran, Why Hindus cannot teach Gita in our schools?

  • When Haj pilgrims are given subsidy, why Hindu pilgrims to Amarnath, Sabarimalai & Kailash Mansarovar are taxed?

  • There are nearly 52 Muslim countries. Show one Muslim country which provides Haj subsidy.

  • If Muslims & Christians are minorities in Maharashtra, UP, Bihar etc., are Hindus not minorities in J&K, Mizoram, Nagaland, Arunachal Pradesh, Meghalaya etc? Why are Hindus denied minority rights in these states?

  • In India today Hindus are 85%. If Hindus are intolerant, how come Masjids and madrasas are thriving? How come Muslims are offering Namaz on the road? How come Muslims are proclaiming 5 times a day on loud speakers that there is no God except Allah?

  • Show one Muslim country where Hindus are extended the special rights that Muslims are accorded in India?

  • Show one country where the 85% majority craves for the indulgence of the 15% minority.

  • Show one Muslim country, which has a Non-Muslim as its President or Prime Minister.

  • Show one Mullah or Maulvi who has declared a 'fatwa' against terrorists.

  • Hindu-majority Maharashtra, Bihar, Kerala, Pondicherry , etc. have in the past elected Muslims as CM’s. Can you ever imagine a Hindu becoming the CM of Muslim - majority J&K?

  • In 1947, when India was partitioned, the Hindu population in Pakistan was about 24%. Today it is not even 1%. In 1947, the Hindu population in East Pakistan (now Bangladesh) was 30%. Today it is about 7%. What happened to the missing Hindus? Do Hindus have human rights?

And why do you feel that we are "showing off" our majority status and pointing at the "minorities" by celebrating our festivals??? Why are you ignoring the fact that we do celebrate the minority festivals too.. we do have Christmas and easter get together, we do have social meetings on the occasions of ramzan, id and moharram where everyone participates.
