India Facing Challenges


Indian finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman accepted that India faces challenges.

Indian economy slumped to six year low.

This has prompted many global agencies to cut India's GDP growth by various degrees for 2019-20.

The RBI, in October monetary policy review, had cut sharply its economic growth projection for the country for this fiscal to 6.1 per cent from 6.9 per cent earlier.

Maharashtra Government Formation


Kamlesh Tiwari Murder : October 18, 2019

Maharashtra Assembly Election : October 21, 2019

Supreme Court Verdict on Babri Masjid Title Suit : November 9, 2019

India at the moment is in an ecstatic mood over government formation in the State of Maharashtra. Why? Because strange bed fellows like Congress (the Secular, Liberal and Democratic party of the country) and the Shiv Sena ( one of the many Islamophobic parties of India) are forming the government and the secular liberals of India are telling us, Muslims as well as whosoever is listening, that what a perfidy is under progress.

One question can be raised at this scene. Is this sarcasm on part of the secular liberal democrats real? There will be Muslims who will say that this is merely an eyewash after the gymnastic laded verdict of the top court where destruction of the Babri Masjid was criticized but the land was nevertheless awarded to the very people who destroyed the Mosque.

SIT Report on 1984 Anti-Sikh Riots


The Special Investigation Team formed by the Honourable Supreme Court to investigate the 1984 Anti-Sikh Riots has submitted its sealed report.

The team had investigated 186 cases.

Since the report is sealed we do not know the details but the public facts are well known.

The Sikh community has doggedly pursued the case and they have extracted compensation three times from the government.

In case of riots where Muslims were on the receiving end the same thing can not be said.

In fact the story in these cases is very sordid and we digress.

There are inconvenient things in case of Sikhs too.

A friend remarked that before those riots the number of Sikhs in armed forces has come down drastically. Shashi Tharoor in one of his books wrote that Sikhs made up one quarter of Indian armed forces. Sikhs in India are 1.72 percent of the population.

In eighties of the last century there was huge militancy in the Sikh populated northern state of Punjab. The ostensible object was the formation of an independent state called Khalistan. Parallel insurgency was going on in Kashmir.

Kashmir was given in the hands of the army while Punjab was dealt with the police. Initially the Punjab task was carried by Julio F Ribero and then finished by another IPS (Indian Police Services) officer KPS Gill.

Two extremely worrying issues on Punjab story are the ones that were high lighted in two different films. One is Udta Punjab (2016) where the drug problem in that state has been focused upon. Was it a punishment for militancy?

The another problem is of the cancer generating industry in the same state where an area of the state has got so much of pollution that the number of cancer patients are so high that there is a special train to fetch them. This problem was high lighted in the film Irada (2017)

Professor Ariful Islam, Late Engineer Ahmed Salim Peerzada and Professor Syed Ali Amir - 1


Indian Muslims formed the Muslim League in Dhaka, now in Bangladesh, in 1906 to safeguard their interests in independent India.

Till 1940 they were very actively striving for getting an equitable deal for themselves once British would leave India, as they, the British, did in 1947.

Muslims realized that this is not going to be the case. The Indian National Congress would not agree to any scheme that would ensure that Muslims would get an equitable deal in independent India.

Thus some of them brought the Pakistan Resolution in the 1940 Lahore Session of the Muslim League.

As a result India was partition in August 1947 into two states - India and Pakistan.

In 1971 India sliced Pakistan into two creating an independent state of Bangladesh. But we digress.

In this whole game the issue of Muslims of Independent India went into a limbo.

They were left with the Congress' vague promise of equality and this pie in the sky has not fallen into their lap as of yet.

Effectively the posture of the Indian National Congress can be summarized in the following nursery story.

***

Once upon a time democracy descended in the jungle.

The elections were held and out of the two candidates, the Lion and the Monkey, the latter one one won.

The Monkey was designated as the ruler of the land, the jungle.

The next day the Lion stole the deer calf for food.

Mother deer complained to the ruler, the Monkey.

The Monkey went with the aggrieved mother deer to the Lion and indeed the Lion had the cub of the deer in his custody.

The Monkey started jumping from one tree to another in a rather furious manner.

After some time the mother deer asked him when would he liberate her cub.

To this the monkey replied that please tell me whether there is any laxity in my efforts in trying to liberate your cub.

Story over.

***

So what about Indian Muslims? Did they get the equity that the League was trying before partition? Ans: No.

Did they get the equality that the Indian National Congress promised? Ans: No.

The ground reality is that though there have been individual success stories of Muslims doing well in independent India like many Muslims reaching the posts of President, Vice President and Chief Justices as well as high level scientists and even armed forces officers but the overall representation of Muslims in leading walks of life has been from 1.5 to four percent at the most while their official population stands at 14.2 percent.

Indeed on the security side the story has progressively gone from bad to worse where they were earlier subjected to the so called communal riots, then to pogroms and finally incessant lynchings. The present government has brought the things to a nadir where there were the things like the Triple Talaq Bill, removal/diluting of the article 370 on Kashmir and finally the Supreme Court verdict on Ayodhya Babri Masjid land title suit.

So what have Indian Muslims being doing for their problems?

This is a question that bears investigation in many aspects but we shall focus only on political empowerment of Muslims of Independent India.

In this sector too we shall talk only about the efforts of three individuals - Professor Ariful Islam, Late Engineer Ahmed Salim Peerzada and Professor Syed Ali Amir.

We shall do so in the next post.
