Where did we miss the bus in India?


Indian Home Minister Mr Amit Shah is saying, in the context of recent militant attacks in Kashmir, that option for surgical strike is open. Basically Afghanistan was occupied by the US and the US did whatever they wanted in Afghanistan as well in Pakistan. India fancies itself like the US and can mess up with Pakistan in the wake of militant attacks. Pakistan is not upbeat about moral support to Kashmir militants but India, particularly the Saffronite, is very aggressive against Pakistan.

In India the Saffron is giving the Muslims the toughest time historically.

Bangladesh was always treated shabbily by India and towards Saffronite they maintain an attitude of abject surrender.

So where did we Muslims of Indian subcontinent miss the buss that lead us to this miserable state that we find ourselves in?

From the posts I have been making and from the posts of other brothers here and there it is clear that we Muslims of Indian subcontinent have not been on exactly holidays. In spite of our significant efforts we are on the receiving end only.

To address the present undesirable situation we need a diagnosis of the historical mistake that we might have committed.

Population Considerations


Hindu population in India today = 110 crore
Muslims in Pakistan = 20 crore
Muslims in India = 20 crore
Muslim population in Bangladesh = 13 crore

Hindu population of Bangladesh = 1.3 crore
Hindu population of Pakistan = .85 crore

Clearly the total population of Muslims in the subcontinent, 53 crore, is less than half of the Hindu population.

Militarily India is much better equipped than either Pakistan or Bangladesh. In fact if there were two more Muslim countries of similar population on Indian border then too the Saffronite would manage the same hegemony.

Some people aver that partition of India was partition of Indian Muslims.

The present Prime Minister of India Mr Narendra Modi, after coming to power in 2014, started taking complete advantage of the progress made by the country under Congress rule to further the Saffron agenda.

Possible Future of Indian Muslims


When the 'peaceful' Buddhists of Myanmar turned their ire against the Rogingyas the end result is that many of them had to to relocate.

I do not know whether all Rohingyas have been displaced from Myanmar but a trouble is a trouble.

We Muslims of India are in trouble because of the Saffronites in India.

What is possible future of Muslims of India?

The Hindus devised the Varna System somewhere in history. They divided the society into two parts Savarnas and the rest. The rest are the Dalits of today. The Savarnas include the Brahmin-Kshatriya-Vaishya-Shudra.

Traditionally it is thought that the Shudras were given the worst deal but the status of what are called the Dalits was the worse than the worst.

Then came the internal revolt in the Hindu society.

Several religions grew up in revolt against the then Varna system.

Jainism of Mahavir Jain and Buddhism of Gautam Buddha.

The Brahministic Varna system had a vehement reaction against these attempts to salvage the down trodden.

Jainism was decimated. The Jain population is very small today.

Buddhism was completely expelled from India.

In fact there was one more religion, Ajivak Dharma, that took shape in India but was completely wiped out by the Savrna system - called Manuvadis today.

What is the Saffronite plan for Muslims of India today?

The lynchings and constant steps against Muslims, helplessness of the Lib-Dems, point to the following possibility.

For those Muslims who are of Indian origin the Saffron plan is of Ghar Vapasi - return to Hinduism.

For those Muslims who came with the Muslim conquerors or because of them the plan, sooner or later, would be the same as Myanmar has for the Rohingyas - leave India.

I can not think of any other scenario.

Indian Muslims Missing Out

Let me take up again the issue of Indian Muslims missing out.

Where did Indian Muslims go wrong and ended up in the present situation where India defeated Pakistan in several wars, Muslims in India being lynched and reduction of Bangladesh to abject lackey?

One argument is that Muslims were less in numbers than Hindus in 1947 and hence got reduced to losers.

This at the moment looks like the correct reason to me. We live in democratic era and numerical majority can always turn into tyrants and that is what has happened in India today.

The democrats define democracy as decision by voting and protection of minority rights.

This protection of minority rights is an after though after seeing the democratic debacle in Germany. Hitler came to power by democratic means.

The Saffronite came to power in India by democratic means and they are implementing their agenda, slowly but still with elan.

In view of this it is clear that the Lib-Dems from the majority community can not address the problem that Indian Muslims find themself in.

One argument against above line of reasoning will be the following - Narendra Modi got 31 % votes in 2014 and 37 % in 2019. Now 37 % is not a majority and hence there is no cause for concern.

This argument is defeated on ground because of the way the things have turned out for Indian Muslims.

Ambedkar and Islam


Let me break my analysis of present state of Indian Muslims with a small diversion on Dalit leader Ambedkar.

In 1932 Dr BR Ambedkar signed Poona Pact with MK Gandhi that gave his people, that Gandhi called the Harijan and who are known today as the Dalits, reservations both in legislature and jobs.

In 1936 declared that he will renounce Hinduism.

In 1950 there was an order from the President of India that Dalits will forfeit the reservation if they convert either to Islam or Christianity.

In 1956 he converted to Buddhism.

Annihilation of Caste

This article deals with the issue why he chose Buddhism over other religions.

Briefly the reasons are : (1) Buddha is human and not a self-declared God, (2) Buddhism is about reason and experience and not faith, (3) Buddhism has morality and not rituals, (4) Gospel of Hinduism is inequality.

****

Clearly we Muslims will cringe about this line of argument but my point is different at the moment.

Above issue of Ambedkar's conversion to Buddhism and not Islam belongs to Dawah sector and owing to great demands of political analysis that I am doing I shall leave these questions to Dayees to sort out while I am trying to figure out the political situation of Indian Muslims and Muslim world as a whole.

How do the Saffronite go about identifying who Muslims of Indian origin are and who Muslims of foreign origin are?

That is just a technical problem of the kind that bigots never take seriously. For example to expel Bengali Muslims in the name of being Bangladeshis the Saffronite have no qualms about slapping measures like NPR, NRC and CAA on whole of India.

This is an article in the Scroll by Ajaz Ashraf about religious violence in ancient India.

This is three years old article and I do not remember whether it passed before my eyes at that time.

Opinion: Why it’s essential for school students to learn about religious violence in ancient India

Historian DN Jha’s ‘Against the Grain’, which challenges the Hindutva depiction of Indian history, could serve as a model for tackling this in textbooks.

Ajaz Ashraf

Historian DN Jha says that his new book Against the Grain: Notes on Identity, Intolerance and History aims to challenge the depiction of the “ancient period of Indian history as a golden age marked by social harmony devoid of any religious violence”. This purported era of peace, he says, enables Hindutva ideologues to “portray the middle ages as…a reign of terror unleashed by the Muslim rulers on Hindus”.

There is no doubt that religious sects in ancient India were accommodative of each other. But it is just as true that Brahminical sects “bore huge animosity towards the two heterodox religions, Buddhism and Jainism”, Jha writes. This rancour resulted in attacks and the appropriation of Buddhist and Jain sacred places.

***
I have two comments on these paragraphs:

First : The Saffronite today want to repeat their performance, what they did to the Jains and Buddhists, on Muslims today.

Second : Apart from Jainism and Buddhism there was yet another religion that arose in response to the raw deal given by Hinduism to a (huge) section of the society. This religion was called Ajivak Dharma. This religion was completely destroyed by the then Hindu society. In recent time Dr Dharamvir, who passed away a few years ago, tried to revive it and there was a vehement opposition to his efforts.

****
These facts seem to be at odds with India’s school-level history textbooks, which have been written – at least until recently – to promote what Delhi University professor Upinder Singh in her recent book Political Violence in Ancient India described as “the idealised Nehru model of the ancient Indian past...one in which Buddhism, Ashoka, nonviolence, and cosmopolitanism had a pride of place”. Hindutva ideologues have exploited this myth to portray the iconoclasm of Muslim rulers as a total reversal of India’s civilisational norms. Implicitly, therefore, Against the Grain highlights the problems of writing history, especially for schoolchildren.
***
My Comments: The image of Hinduism as a tolerant religion was cultivated to put Islam in bad light.

***
A history of religious violence

Jha marshals a wide array of examples to show the enormous scale of religious violence in ancient India. For example, in the 7th century, King Shashanka cut the down Bodhi tree, under which Buddha gained enlightenment in Bodh Gaya, and replaced the Buddha’s statue with that of Shiva in a local temple.

Seven centuries earlier, in 185 BCE, Pushyamitra Shunga overthrew the Buddhist Mauryan dynasty, destroyed the Ashokan pillared hall and the Kukutarama monastery in Pataliputra. He is also said to have vandalised the famous Sanchi Stupa, burnt down the Ghositaram monastery in Kaushambi, and killed Buddhist monks wantonly. As a consequence, the Buddhist Sanskrit work, Divyavadana, describes him as the “great persecutor” of Buddhists.
***
My Comments: Clearly the ground reality in ancient India was quite different from what has been taught in Indian schools under Nehruvian model of history of ancient India.
***

In present-day Uttar Pradesh, a Brahminical appropriation of Buddhist sites occurred in Sarnath, the site of Buddha’s first sermon. For instance, the Main Shrine was built on the ruins of a destroyed Ashokan stupa in the Gupta period. In Sravasti, a Buddhist site was appropriated to build a temple with Ramayana panels. Mathura’s Katra Mound had been a sacred Buddhist site in the first century CE, as had been the spots where the temples of Bhuteshwar and Gokarneshwar stand today.

***
My Comments : Near my village in UP there is a huge pond with a temple complex nearby. In the middle of the pond there used to be a tomb - Roshan Baba Ka Mazar. Some years back that has been taken over by the Hindus and turned into a temple.
***
Kalhana’s Rajatarangini mentions Jalauka, a Shaivite king, destroying Buddhist monasteries even when the Mauryan emperor Ashoka was likely alive. Kalhana refers to king Nara burning thousands of monasteries in retaliation against a monk who had seduced his wife. The 10th-century ruler Kshemagupta destroyed a Buddhist monastery to build the Kshemagaurishvara temple.

There were bitter ideological battles. For instance, Sanskrit grammarian Patanjali, in Mahabhashya, likens the relationship between “Shramanas [Buddhists and Jains] and Brahmanas” to that between the snake and the mongoose. The 12th century Jain scholar Hemachandra denounced the ancient code of law Manusmriti on the grounds that it supported ritual violence. Vaishnava poet-saint Tirumankai stole a large golden image of Buddha from a stupa in Nagapattinam and melted it for reuse in a temple Vishnu had commissioned him to build. The hagiographies of the Lingayat saint Basava speak of the slaughter of Jains and the appropriation of their temples by his followers.

These are just some of the examples taken from Jha’s list of religious sites that were appropriated or destroyed, making it clear that ancient India witnessed a level of religious violence that was certainly not insignificant. However, this is barely evident in the National Council of Education Research and Training’s textbooks prescribed for India’s Class 12 students.
***
My Comments : Lingayat is another non-Hindu community that we did not hear of till a leftist activist, Gauri Lankesh, was brutally killed by the Saffronites a few years back.
***

What the textbooks leave unsaid

For instance, though Themes in Indian History – Part I speaks of the construction plan of the famous Sanchi Stupa and deciphers its sculptures for students, there is no mention of Pushyamitra vandalising the shrine.

Part I describes various sects participating in philosophical debates that were deemed democratic and civilised. “If a philosopher succeeded in convincing one of his rivals, the followers of the latter also became his disciples,” it observes. “So support for any particular sect could grow and shrink over time.” However, students are not told about how Buddhists were killed for challenging Brahminism.

This lacuna is partly offset by a passage in Themes in Indian History – Part II. “Those who valued Vedic traditions” condemned the practices that did not involve sacrifices or the precise chanting of mantras, it says. Their “relations with other traditions, such as Buddhism and Jainism, were also often fraught with tension if not open conflict”, the passage notes.

Part II also says that “one of the major themes in Tamil bhakti hymns is the poets’ opposition to Buddhism and Jainism”. An explanatory sentence follows: “Historians have attempted to explain this hostility by suggesting that it was due to competition between members of other religious traditions for royal patronage.”

Yet, the picture of the past that Part I and Part II create is far removed from the one Jha paints – contestations that often snowballed into violence, destruction and appropriation of places of worship of those sects that lost royal patronage, as Buddhism and Jainism gradually did.

The underplaying of religious violence is equally true of Part II, which mostly deals with the Muslim rulers who came later. “Several” Muslim rulers are credited with granting land endowments and tax exemptions to non-Islamic religious institutions. One sentence names two Mughal emperors – Akbar and Aurangzeb – for making such grants.
***
My Comment : Here the author changes focus to religious violence by Muslim rulers.
***
That, indeed, is a fact. But Part II mostly glosses over Aurangzeb’s reign, including his destruction of temples. It does mention jizya, which is defined as a tax paid by followers of “revealed scriptures, such as the Jews and Christians” for gaining the “right to be protected by Muslims”. It adds, “As you will see, rulers such as the Mughals came to regard themselves as emperors of not just Muslims but of all peoples.” A sentence crediting Akbar for abolishing jizya in 1564 is followed by another saying Aurangzeb re-imposed it.

Certainly, these few sentences do not provide a perspective to students on whether it was fair to impose jizya and Aurangzeb’s motivation in reversing Akbar’s abolition of it. Part II says the sultans of Bijapur, Golconda and Ahmadnagar joined forces to sack Vijayanagar in 1565. The treatment is too cursory for students to grasp whether people like Nobel laureate VS Naipaul have tenable reasons to nurse a deep grievance against those who turned Vijayanagar into a ruin.
***
My Comment : Muslims of today have to pay close attention to these issues.
***
Growing up on a myth

Apart from reinforcing the model of a harmonious past in the hope of creating a peaceful present, the scholars who drafted the National Council of Education Research and Training’s policy perhaps believe contentious issues of religious differences, discrimination and conflict are just too sensitive for Class 12 students.

Yet, the irony is that Class 12 students are mostly 18 years or 17 years of age, already voters or months away from being able to exercise their franchise. Their voting decisions are supposed to be based on reasoned judgement. With history increasingly becoming a site of political contestations, their school books do not equip them to engage with contentious ideas such as Muslim rule having been a “reign of terror”.

The knowledge of history that most people have is confined to what they read in school. They grow up with the myth that India was free of religious conflict until the arrival of the Muslims. This is precisely why even middle-class Hindus are susceptible to political campaigns built around stories about the persecution of Hindus by Muslim rulers.

India’s text books have created a history, however true, that is out of sync with a remembered past that has been crafted and popularised to fan hatred. This notion of the past is not interrogated in textbooks.

School is, of course, just one aspect of a student’s social milieu. On hearing the incessant chatter, particularly from parents and friends, about the violence that Muslim rulers perpetrated against Hindus, an 18-year-old cannot be faulted for thinking that the writers of schoolbooks practise deception through concealment.

In the preface of Against the Grain, Jha writes that his book is “addressed to the people who are vulnerable to the balderdash of the Hindu Right”. Once acquainted with knowledge of sectarian fissures and conflicts in the first millennium, India’s young students will be equipped to perceive the religious policies of Muslim rulers as a continuation of the norms that had long prevailed. Against the Grain should be the model for writing history textbooks for schools.

A Facebook Post by Zafar Jung Sahab

YA ALLAH SEND ANOTHER GANDHI WE ARE IN SHAMBLES.

****

Jung family is among known ones in Indian Muslims.

Hence his post carries some relevance.

But I am not with his prayers.

Even if some future Gandhi solves the problems of Indian Muslims this will be just some worldly respite and no credit in the hereafter for us.

Then there is the question of reassessment of one Gandhi that we already had. Were his actions in favour of Indian Muslims in the long run?

These are the things I can not write on Facebook in spite of the fact that I write more frankly than most others.

Gandhi's first step after returning from South Africa to India was to push out Muhammed Ali Jinnah both from Indian National Congress and the Home Rule League.

His next step was to take over the Khilafat Movement and kill it at the first excuse and that was all that was needed to effectively neutralize Muslim efforts in the path of independence.

Muslims were left with no option but to accept a small divided country in the Muslim majority areas. Plus the accusation of partition upon Muslims of India that they bear till today.

In fact even Pakistan bears the accusation for partition in spite of the fact that it was created out of Muslim majority areas.

Pakistani narrative till today is of a guilty society, society guilty of partitioning a united country along religious lines.

The Saffron Dominates


The Lib-Dems, Congress-SP-BSP and the rest, was completely and thoroughly subdued electorally.

Muslims were bludgeoned to submission by Ghar Wapasi, Love Jihad and Cow vigilante.

Some time back RSS publication Panchjanya wrote an article that scared the Indian IT giant Infosys.

Then there was the news of beheading of Arbaz Mulla from Karnataka for Love Jihad.

Today's hot topic is that an Indian ethnic clothes brand, Fab India, can not use the tagline Jashn-e-Riwaz [sic] for Indian festival Diwali.

A couple of years ago Karan Thapar, well know TV interviewer, said that Modi as a colossal is increasing in size.

Later on someone pointed out that Rahul Gandhi is the only politician still fighting Modi.

Slowly, step by step, the Saffronite are taking steps to tick the items in their agenda.

Missing the Bus in India


I have written in some of the earlier posts about we Muslims missing the bus in India.

I think it can be pinpointed when it happened.

Muslim League, during the freedom struggle, was fighting for a equitable deal for Muslims in independent India.

All of their proposals and suggestions were shot down and rejected by the Indian National Congress.

Jawahar Lal Nehru single handedly shot down the British Cabinet Mission Plan shortly before partition and independence.

This is around the time when Muslims fighting for freedom chose to create a small state of Pakistan for people in those areas where Muslims were in majority.

Clearly in the process no Muslim had the mind to talk about the problems of the Muslims who will remain in India.

Indeed if look at the proposals that were forwarded by the Muslim in their negotiations with the Congress were very audacious.

It was like Muslims having a veto like power about the decisions that were taken.

Congress did not accept these and partition ensued.

Then in 1971 India chopped off East Pakistan as Bangladesh. India has defeated Pakistan in several wars. India keeps Bangladesh as a lackey and people like Shaikh Haseena enjoy the humiliation.

In short there was no time when Muslims were not aware of their problems but they could not solve the problems of Indian Muslims. They tried and failed. They did not fail without trying. They were not caught unawares.

What can be done about the problems of Indian Muslims now?


Secular Hindus had an upper hand over Pakistan and Bangladesh.

The communal bigots among Hindus kept inflicting massacres and pogroms all through out seven and half decades of independence.

The killing of twenty thousand Muslims in Hyderabad in the so called police action was the handiwork of the so called secular Hindus.

The earlier phase of the Saffron rule, under Atal Bihari Vajpayee and LK Advani, came into being by Advani's Rath Yatra that personified majoritarian unity against the minorities, particularly Muslims.

The present phase of Saffron has been implementing an agenda that is rather horrifying and going from bad to worse.

Ghar Wapasi, Love Jihad and Cow vigilantism are only few examples of their modus operandi. There have been the Supreme Court verdict that gave Babri Masjid land to the temple and removal of article 370 on Kashmir and opening up of property sale to non-Kashmiris.

Then there are events like renaming of places and raucous over Jashn-e-Riwaz [sic].

So what can be done about the situation of Muslims today in India.

Clearly the problem is chronic and it was not solved when Indian Muslims were represented by the best of the leaders.

Today Lib-Dems have been subdued by the Saffron.
Police, PAC and the CRPF have always been against Muslims.

I suspect that the RAF is no more neutral.

Army has serious infiltration of Saffron bigots. So has the judiciary.

Not only Muslim worthies but even the Lib-Dem worthies have been reduced to their pale shadows.

The problem looks most daunting.

Is Our Problem Impossible?


It is not my intention to make the problem of Indian Muslims look impossible.

If there are problems then these must be solved. That is why we are in this world.

Rasoolallah SAW was given the most difficult problem of all history - to establish Islam in the most hostile environment.

Then we Muslims faced several extremely difficult problems.

There were the Christian Crusades and it took hundreds of years for Muslims to put these to an end.

There was the Mongol invasion that was just impossible to deal with by the then leaders of the Muslim world - the Arabs.

It replaced the Arabs as the rulers and we entered when Turks ruled most of the Muslim Empires.

And then the Christians came to avenge the defeat of their Crusades.

This time they came with such a preparation that the meagre opposition by people like Abdul Qadir Al-Jazairi and Tipu Sultan, in spite of the utmost valiance, were of no consequence.

Muslim world was completely dominated by the British and the French.

And then the US replaced the British and the French as the world ruler by economic colonialism.

US economic colonialism is once again like nothing seen earlier - a single country having sway over the whole world.

The Europe made the European Union to survive in the US era but they will not like Muslims to live according to Islam.


In the meanwhile the Muslim countries not only managed to free from British and French colonialism but also decimate and disintegrate the USSR in Afghanistan.

This liberated many Muslim countries in central Asia from Russian rule.

Osama Bin Laden, an Arab angry over Palestinian occupation by the Zionists, orchestrated 9/11 attacks and that plunged the then Taliban government into a twenty years long war with the US.

This resulted in killing of forty seven thousand Taliban fighters and two and half lakhs of Afghans.

The US has vacated Afghanistan but some times issues warning to Taliban.

In a recent visit to the US of Indian Prime Minister Mr Narendra Modi the US President Mr Joe Biden did not allow a bear hug and the the Vice President Kamla Harris, of Indian origin, gave a short speech about democracy.

In this we can read that US is not with the Saffronite and that is some consolation.

And all this assessment is once again to take stock of the situation and not to discourage Muslims from trying to solve the problems we find ourselves in.

Retired Commissioner Muhammed Iftikharuddin


Hindi News Report

लखनऊ: कानपुर के मंडलायुक्त (कमिश्नर) रहे वरिष्ठ आईएएस अधिकारी इफ्तिखारुद्दीन मामले में एसआईटी ने सोमवार को अपनी जांच रिपोर्ट शासन को सौंप दी है. एसआईटी में शामिल एक अफसर के मुताबिक रिपोर्ट में इफ्तिखारुद्दीन पर सरकारी आवास में वर्ष 2014 से 17 के बीच धर्मांतरण को लेकर सभाएं करने का आरोप सही साबित हुआ है. यह बात सामने आई है कि इफ्तिखारुद्दीन ने आपत्तिजनक कंटेंट से जुड़ी दो नहीं बल्कि सात किताबें लिखी थीं. रिपोर्ट में कई अहम खुलासे किए गए हैं, जिनके आधार पर इफ्तिखारुद्दीन पर शिकंजा कसना तय है.

बीते माह यूपी के वरिष्ठ आईएएस अधिकारी और उत्तर प्रदेश राज्य सड़क परिवहन (UPSRTC) के चेयरमैन इफ्तिखारुद्दीन से जुड़े कुछ वीडियो सोशल मीडिया में वायरल हुए थे. इनमें हिन्दू धर्म के खिलाफ अपमानजनक बातें कहीं जा रही थीं. साथ ही धर्म विशेष से जुड़ने के फायदे बताए जा रहे थे. वीडियो वायरल की शिकायत कानपुर के समाजसेवी भूपेश अवस्थी ने मुख्यमंत्री कार्यालय में करते हुए जांच की मांग की थी.

मामले की गंभीरता को देखते हुए शासन ने डीजी सीबीसीआईडी जीएल मीना की अध्यक्षता में एसआईटी का गठन किया था. लगभह बीस दिन की जांच के बाद एसआईटी ने रिपोर्ट शासन को सौंप दी है. शासन के सूत्रों की मानें तो एसआईटी को जांच में कई ऐसे सुबूत मिले हैं, जो इफ्तिखारुद्दीन पर लगे आरोपों को सही साबित कर रहे हैं. एसआईटी ने इफ्तिखारुद्दीन द्वारा लिखे आपत्तिजनक कंटेंट से जुड़े साहित्य को भी जांच रिपोर्ट का हिस्सा बनाया है. इस साहित्य में न सिर्फ हिंदू धर्म की गलत तरीके से व्याख्या की गई है, बल्कि कुरान की आयतों के भी गलत अर्थ निकाले गए हैं.

यह भी पता चला है कि इन आपत्तिजनक पुस्तकों को सीवान के एक प्रिंटिंग प्रेस में छापा गया है. एसआईटी को इफ्तिखारुद्दीन के कानपुर मंडलायुक्त रहने के दौरान के धार्मिक आयोजनों के 67 वीडियो मिले हैं. इनकी ट्रांसक्रिप्ट तैयार करके रिपोर्ट में दर्ज किया गया है. सरकारी बंगले में धर्मांतरण और कट्‌टरता की पाठशाला चलाने वाले सीनियर आईएएस अफ़सर मो. इफ्तिखारुद्दीन के मामले में एसआईटी ने 207 पन्नों की रिपोर्ट शासन को सौंपी है. 207 पन्नों की रिपोर्ट में लगभग 20 पन्नों में इफ़्तिख़ारुद्दीन का बयान दर्ज किया गया है.

Google Translation

Lucknow: The SIT has submitted its investigation report to the government on Monday in the Iftikharuddin case, a senior IAS officer who was the Divisional Commissioner (Commissioner) of Kanpur. According to an officer involved in the SIT, in the report, the allegation on Iftikharuddin of holding meetings in the government residence between 2014 and 17 regarding conversion has been proved correct. It has come to the fore that Iftikharuddin had written not two but seven books related to objectionable content. Many important revelations have been made in the report, on the basis of which it is certain to tighten the noose on Iftikharuddin.

Last month, some videos related to Iftikharuddin, a senior IAS officer of UP and chairman of Uttar Pradesh State Road Transport (UPSRTC), went viral on social media. In these, derogatory things were going on against Hindu religion. Along with this, the benefits of joining a particular religion were being told. While complaining about the video viral, Kanpur's social worker Bhupesh Awasthi had demanded an inquiry in the Chief Minister's Office.

These are among the significant names that have been arrested in UP with trumped up charges of forced conversions.

In India constitution allows not only for practice but even propagation of religion.

Somehow only Hinduism finds itself vulnerable to conversions.

A few decades ago the Supreme Court interpreted the freedom to propagation of religion not advisable in case of possibility of social unrest. This effectively gave the majority community the license to thwart the freedom to propagate religion.

The present government in UP has taken the issue one step further - arresting those who propagate Islam.
