Arundhati Roy on Fiction in Saffron Times


This is a mighty article by the venerable (kindly always take a suitable Islamic meaning when I use doubtful words) author.

It took me days on end to finish it.

Her summary of the situation in India today is not only through but exquisite too.

Indeed Shashi Tharoor and Arundhati Toy are two authors whom I can not have enough of.

You have to go through the article yourself to get the real taste of what she brings out.

At every point I felt like saying that that is how I shall say it or present this fact.

I have, for the time being, skipped her description of her novels.

Maripat sahib, what are your opinions on Chandra shekhar azad. I came across this article today.

Famous Political Opportunist Chandra Shekhar Azad alias Ravan has now announced his own separate political party, his record so far has been extremely dubious and crowded with people, and whenever he is If and when their community was in need, it never worked in critical conditions, however, the stairs of the jama mosque and the Muslims became famous for their grief.

Last day there was a riot in Delhi, after which we went to Delhi and gathered information about it, which clearly showed the role of this man and his Bhumi Army, not one of the affected areas. Serious people told me that he actually had a hand in driving the Muslims out of the wrong place and uprooting the environment by taking them on the road, so I am convinced once again to convey this to the Muslims.

Because after the worst riots in Delhi, it has now officially announced its political agenda.

Understand this chronology: and protect Muslims from such exploitation, save many from the mistakes of the last seventy years.

Let us not get distracted by him or any other well wisher.

My view is that we must have our own agenda and pursue it.

In that agenda we can take anybody's help.

That help must be at our own terms.

I have been advocating this for a long time and the whole attitude of Sharjeel Imam is the same.

On the specific issues of their role in Delhi riots - I do not think he is a devious man.

Excruciating Communal History of India


I should label it Islamophobic history of India.

I am calling it communal history because in spite of being an inaccurate labeling this is what is popular in India at the moment.

I have this article on Vibhuti Narain Rai before me.

The complain, invariably, in India, by the Muslims, the surviving victims, is that the police did not do what it was supposed to do.

The article is about a an IPS Police officer Vibhuti Narain Rai and his expereince in communal riots.

He was posted in Ghaziabad when Hashimpura 1987 took place.
One of his findings was that Muslims were the worst sufferers, both in terms of loss of life and property, in most major communal riots in the country.

Delhi Police internal report on riots nails Mishra, Azad (IANS Exclusive)
Delhi Police Internal Report On Riots Nails Mishra, Azad (IANS Exclusive)
Delhi Police internal report on riots nails Mishra, Azad ( Exclusive)

New Delhi, March 7 While Delhi Police bore the brunt of being "mute spectators" during the riots in northeastern parts of the capital recently, it has sprung back to action and detailed a chronology that led to the Delhi violence. The police have detailed how BJP leader Kapil Mishra sent text messages to his followers and Bhim Army Chief Chandrashekhar Azad mobilized people from minority-dominated areas to be a part of the riots that have led to the death of 53 people so far.

The police''s internal report accessed by states that it was pro-Citizenship Amendment Act protesters who carried out attack on a Bhim Army vehicle. The Bhim Army activists then mobilized local people and retaliated.

The internal status report on riots in Delhi states: "On February 22, 2020 around 10:30 p.m. nearly 500 women began a protest near Jafrabad Metro Station against Citizenship Amendment Act and National Register of Citizens. Seeing them, about 2,000 local youths join the protest."

In the report, the police also stated that they tried to control the situation and roped in Maulana Shameem and Maulana Dawood for support and contained that situation.

"On February 23 morning, Kapil Mishra and Deepak Singh sent a message to their followers using social media, calling them to assemble at Maujpur Chowk in favour of CAA and NRC at 2:30 p.m. and to oppose the protest at Jafrabad," the report said.

The police noted that Mishra accompanied by Deepak Singh arrived at the spot at 2.30 p.m. and stayed there for almost three hours. "Deepak Singh was kept away from the spot," stated the report adding, "Bhim Army led by Chandrashekar had given a call for Bharat Bandh the same day."

The police thereafter explains how rioting began at 5 p.m. the same day.

"One vehicle carrying Bhim Army supporters was attacked by pro-CAA supporters at Maujpur Chowk," the report said.

"They (Bheem Army) retaliated by calling more people from Kardampuri and Kabir Nagar which led to incidents of stone-pelting from both sides," the report stated.

The police point out that police personnel were inadequate and that two companies led by a police officer were sent to contain the situation.

Around 8 p.m, Kardampuri became a flash point with both sides trying to take on each. This led Joint Commissioner of Police Alok Kumar and Deputy Commissioner of Police North East Ved Prakash Surya to rush to the spot to control the situation.

In police report, February 24 is known as the ''Fateful Day''.

On February 24, the rioting started at 10 a.m. The aggression from both sides escalated in Kardampuri, Chand Bagh, Bhajanpura, Yamuna Vihar, Brij Puri T point. Both groups started clashing and shouting slogans.

Five Deputy Commissioners of Police and a Joint Commissioner of Police were deployed in a coordinated matter to contain the situation. However, massive stone pelting started at Kardampuri and Sherpur Chowk.

Two policemen -- DCP Shahadra Amit Sharma and ACP Gokulpuri Anuj Kumar -- suffered injuries and Head Constable Ratan Lal lost his life after being hit by rioters.

The clashes continued the entire day and many shops were gutted and a petrol pump burned and looted. Many houses were also burnt and damaged. A lot of people could have died or injured.

"Places such as Ghonda, Noor-e-Elashi, Brahmapuri Lane Number 1 and 3, Chand Bag and Sherpur Bazar became another fresh flashpoints," stated the police report.

On February 25, riots, arson and looting were witnessed at nine police stations -- Khajuri Khas, Sonia Vihar , Welcome, Jafrabad, Dayalpur, Jyoti Nagar, Gokulpuri, Bhajanpura and New Usmanpur.

As many as 25 flashpoints surafaced which included Shiv Vihar, Karawl Nagar, Ganga Nagar and Bhagirathi Vihar. The rioting spillover continued into February 26.

The police report stated: "Sufficient outside police force was deployed in addition to local strength. The rioters and police fought several pitched battles."

When asked about police''s internal repot, which highlights the role of Kapil Mishra and Chandrashekhar Azad in the riots, Additional Commissioner of Police and Delhi Police''s Public Relations officer M.S. Randhawa said, "I am not aware about any such report."

Randhawa further pointed: "Delhi police is probing riot incidents with all angles. Whoever figures during the investigation will be probed and booked accordingly. We have registered more than 600 cases so far and detained nearly 1,800 people."

Girilal Jain (1924 – 19 July 1993)


He, a Hindu nationalist, was the editor of The Times of India from 1978 till 1988. He authored books like The Hindu Phenomenon, published posthumously. The Government of India awarded him the civilian honour of the Padma Bhushan in 1989.

Khushwant Singh's review of above book:

The Hindu Phenomenon : By Girilal Jain : UBSPD : Pages: 170 : Price: Rs 75 (August 1994, India Today)

Towards the end of his distinguished career as editor of The Times of India, Girilal Jain's editorials showed a distinct anti-Muslim, anti-Christian and anti-Sikh bias, dismaying his friends and admirers who respected him for his erudition and lucid style of writing.

He brushed aside charges of communal bias and after retirement became an even more vocal supporter of right-wing Hindu parties like the BJP, the VHP and the RSS, Had he lived on, he would have undoubtedly joined the Hindutva think-tank, comprising K.R. Malkani. Arun Shourie and Sita Ram Goel. His daughter. Meenakshi Jain, has acknowledged their advice and assistance in the editing of The Hindu Phenomenon.

Jain's thesis begins with the assertion "We are set on the path to Hindu Rashtra". He asserts that the process began when Muslim rule ended and the British took over. British orientalists such as Holwell, William Jones and Colebrooke made Hindus conscious of their heritage and restored their self-esteem.

A succession of leaders, from Ram Mohun Roy and Keshub Chandra Sen to Swami Vivekananda. Dayanand Saraswati, Bal Gangadhar Tilak and Sri Aurobindo. taught them self-confidence. Bankim Chandra Chatterjee gave them "the religion of patriotism". used later by leaders of the Hindu resurgence movement and the freedom struggle. Jain writes, "As I see it, our history of the past two centuries has been the history of the rise of Hindus after a lapse of centuries of Muslim invasions and rule."

By contrast, he writes. Muslims developed a ghetto mentality because "very early Islam closed itself on itself. By insisting on the finality of Mohammad's revelation and the immutability of both the Koran and the Sunnah, Islam ensured that there could be no place in it for self-renewal".

Jain further asserts, "Muslims as a community do not, and indeed cannot, accept secularism as a legitimate doctrine." He endorses Jinnah's theory that Hindus (which include Jains, Buddhists and Sikhs) are a nation apart from the Muslims, and describes the Partition as inevitable and even beneficial.

However, he puts the blame for India's vivisection squarely on the Muslims, particularly the Aligarh Muslim University. He has little patience with Nehru who he describes as "naive" enough to have let himself be black mailed by Sheikh Abdullah, for his half-baked zeal for socialism, for missing out on the opportunity to befriend the US and for bringing India to the verge of economic ruination.

Nehru's attempts to draw Muslims into the mainstream, Jain writes, flopped because they remained "obstinate" and "frozen in their attitude", intent on preserving their own personal law and separate identity.

It is not surprising then that Jain regarded the destruction of the Babri Masjid in 1992 not as a catastrophe but as "essentially beneficent, for it released forces which will have a decisive influence in shaping the future of India". He saw Hindu resurgence like the subterranean patal Ganga which suddenly burst out on the surface.

He assured that "Hindus do not need the imported concept of secularism in order to be able to show respect towards other faiths. That comes naturally to them." And assured Indian Muslims that they would feel more secure in a Hindu Rashtra than in a secular India. This book needs to be read carefully only because it gives an insight into how an alarmingly increasing number of Hindu intellectuals are beginning to think.

You cannot refute their arguments - and they can be refuted at every point - without knowing what they have to say. I hope there will be no buyers for this pernicious and jaundiced reading of the Muslims' presence in India.
