The issue is not Jinnah.
Indian Nationalists so far have tried every submission from not eating beef to offering to give away Babri Masjid where has it gotten Indian Muslims?
The day is not far when they Hindutva will ask for Islam to be removed as it is not "Indian".
Let me end by saying again, this is not about Jinnah.
Substitute Jinnah with something else and you will get the same thing.
Eating beef is certainly not a tenet of Islam.
Or is it? What is happening in Surah Baqrah? Why the title in Baqrah? "Eat and drink from the good things we have given you" Says Allah SWT in His Book.
Hazrat Thanwi RA has written that it is not the right thing to do avoid Cow sacrifice to please non-Muslims.
Yet Muslims of India are making similar sacrifices on daily basis.
"Mullaji Jai Sri Ram!", said a pig from my own village. I was absolutely in no mood to create a scene so I calmy relayed. But forgive I shall not. Nor I shall forget.
The Jinnah controversy is certainly neither about idol worship nor about legalizing portraits.
It is true that modern educational institutions run by Muslims are rather lax about idols as well as portaraits but idolators they have not become.
Now that AMU has been physically attacked please support us by not bringing in the pseudo-wisdom like do not incence the majorty by protesting in favour of a portrait.
And for the record AMU is not in protest for the portrait but agaisnt security break. That is precisely the view expressed by Dr Muhammed Hamid Ansari.
More than two dozen of our students have been mercilessly thrashed and injured by the security forces including the elite RAF (Rapid Action Force - a force that was till now known to be reasonably free from anti-Muslim bias).
The strange thing is that the RSS goons came in full police view for the police was running with them.
Former Vice President of India was staying in the campus. Yet the goons fired country made pistols.
Yet my brother advises that let us capitulate and not protest for this will make the bigots angry. Extremely strange.
May I record my resentment on this suggestion and advice?
Muslims should behave in conjunction with and in cooperation with local Government and laws.
If you live in a majority Muslim area then consult your local Government and community and if they are OK with blasting speakers then blast speakers.
In minority Muslim areas do the same and act accordingly.
Same thing happens around the world.
The issue with Muslims in India is that they are too disunited and chaotic and busy in “Hazrat Worship” so everybody has their loyalties to a Hazrat instead of having the welfare of Indian Muslims at heart.
This is neither difficult nor rocket science.
If there is a majority Muslim Mohalla in Hyderabad then it should have the freedom to blast Qur’aan all night (I disagree but if that is what they want). A minority Muslim Mohalla should not and consultation should be made.
BUT Indian Muslim pay Chanda through their blood and sweat and when Hazrat passed away his son/nephew etc takes over and the cycle continues with no solution. India is the only country in the world with a "Shahi Imam"...Hazrat Worship is at its zenith in India.
This cannot be undone and I am sure it will be greatly appreciated.
