All India Muslim Personal Law Board(AIMPLB): Recitation of Vande Mataram against Islam

There was a time when thousands of freedom fighters faced British Bullets singing Vande Matram. But these are different times. Now we have become secular.
Recently, Centre asked all schools to make their students recite the first two stanzas of Vande Mataram as part of the centenary celebrations of the National Song on September 7. All India Muslim Personal Law Board(AIMPLB)has protested this move. According to them reciting Vande Mataram is against the tenets of the shariat (islamic law). There are some lines in Vande Mataram which go against our religion. They have said that Muslims could under no circumstances allow their children to recite the song. And as a concesssion they said "Muslims had no problem in reciting the National Anthem, Jana gana mana. As if Nation is asking their permission and begging them to sing National Song!!

Following are first two stanza of Vande Matram:

Mother, I bow to thee!
Rich with thy hurrying streams,
bright with orchard gleams,
Cool with thy winds of delight,
Dark fields waving Mother of might,
Mother free.
Glory of moonlight dreams,
Over thy branches and lordly streams,
Clad in thy blossoming trees,
Mother, giver of ease
Laughing low and sweet!
Mother I kiss thy feet,
Speaker sweet and low!
Mother, to thee I bow.

I am still trying to understand what is so Anti Islam in above two Para? It for the nation to decide whether we have space for such people in our country.


The national song Vande Mataram is "against Islamic beliefs" and asking Muslims to sing it would amount to "suppression" of the community, said Shahi Imam of Delhi's Jama Masjid Syed Ahmed Bukhari.

ek machar sala aadmi ko hijraa bana deta hai

It seems Terrorists have incredible sense of timing. Like clockwork they attack us atleast once every month less we forget about them. Yesterday it was ISKCON, a month back it was Mumbai.
And what is our reaction! NOTHING, ZILCH! Our prime minister cannot even bring himself to say that the terrorism in India is being sponsored from Pakistan. His said "I am confident that the people of this great city have the will and courage to face this situation and will stand firm in their resolve to carry on their normal activities without succumbing to threats of terror. We will work to defeat the evil designs of terrorists and will not allow them to succeed" .
Mr. PM, You need not be reminded us on our strengths after all we have withstood such Attrocities for last 1000 Years. First from Mughal Emperors, then from British. Only sad part is subjucation of last 1000 Years have made us Impotent. Now we donot even react to such Attrocities.

Our TV media kept reminding us that the attacks are reaction to Babri Masjid Demolition and Gujarat Issue. In the action-reaction theory, they conveniently forgot that Babri Masjid Demolition was a reaction to the Demolition of a Ram Temple and Gujarat Riot was in reaction to Godhra Carnage. Guess, they are following the ageold wisdom of when in Rome be a Roman.

Mr. PM, we as citizens of this nations demand to know what is your action plan or are we the sacrificial lamp on the Altars of SUCKularism? Please donot test the limits. As Nana Patekar aptly said in one of the movies"ek machar sala aadmi ko hijraa bana deta hai"

Arjun's next step: Fund madarssas

Now, out of every Rs 100 spent by the government under the Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan, to make all of India's children literate, Rs 26 will now be directed towards the Muslim community.
This means one fourth of the Rs 10000 crore allocated for the Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan for the current fiscal will be utilised in areas with large Muslim population.
Great Move Arjun. Keep it up. I am sure all the money you give them would be well spend. No Marks for guessing how?


in Kerala: 18 suspected SIMI activists arrested

Kerala Police arrested 18 suspected activists of the banned Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI) in Binamipuram in this district. Acting on a tip-off that SIMI activists were conducting a meeting at an auditorium in Binamipuram, the place was raided and the suspected activists were arrested, police said. They also seized certain literature enumerating SIMI's activities in India, and pamphlets and books printed in Pakistan. All the arrested were in the late 20's and were from different parts of the state, police said.

As per the the TV news (Asianet) they were carrying Map of India Without Kashmir!
I am amazed by their audacity (Look at the smile on their faces)for holding such a meeting at such a time. Or is it the feeling that they are safe and Immune? That wont be surprising considering the current PDF Government is elected with the support of Ultra Fundamentalist Jamaat E Islami(ex Mother of SIMI)

The police said they recovered ``seditious'' material including SIMI pamphlets and a book, "Mass Resistance in Kashmir — Origin, Evolution and Options." The Islamic Foundation based in Leicester in the U.K published this book authored by Taheer Ameen of the Institute of Policy Studies, Islamabad. The book was borrowed from a local library.

My Answer

Someone left these comments on my previous post

Here you are raising two points.
1. One is that those Dalits who have undergone conversion must not be considered for reservation.
2. The second is that conversion should be discouraged.

I ask you a question -
Do you consider that conversion improves the social status of the Dalits?

If you say "Yes" to the above question, then you must encourage more conversions to improve the status of the Dalits.

If you say "No" to the above question, then you must encourage the continuation of reservation to the converted Dalits.

Well, to state the truth, the social status of the Dalits does not improve in the eyes of religious community in which they belonged to before. If at all, it improves only in their sense of belonging to a community which promises them the respect which they earlier missed.

The religion which is losing the numbers cries fowl, the religion which is gaining the numbers says it is good.

The politicians are counting the numbers.

We are watching the fun.

Lets get our facts right. The Fruits of reservation is not open to all the poor sections of the society. The objective of reservation is exclusive to adherents of native Indian dharmas to enable them to overcome historic social disadvantages which kept them economically and educationally backward. With reservation we expect to bring the less fortunate in Hindu Society on Par with others wrt to Economic & Social Status. It also tries to remove the stigma associated with them. This condition donot exist in Xtian Society. Christianity sought converts on the plea that it did not discriminate between believers, and hence low caste believers would loose the social stigma of their original caste. This would mean the So called Xtian Dalits are asking reservation only becuase they are Economically backward and the Current Policy of reservation do to cater to this group.

By the way are there Dalits in Xtians?

Conversion Agenda Again

Kerala Catholic Bishops Conference (KCBC) has demanded following as part of their champain during Justice Sunday-2006 on August 20 .

The letter said the Catholic community in India had a responsibility to come forward for the liberation of Dalit Christians. "The community continues to be vociferous against the injustice shown by the Government to Dalit Christians. As a result, the State Government had granted some concessions. But still, reservation rights for jobs and education have not been given," the letter said.

The Dalit Christians would enjoy these rights only if they were included in the Scheduled Community list. "Dalit Christians and Dalits lost their rights only because they embraced Christianity. Though the Central Government in 1996 called for the opinion of the State with regard to granting reservation rights to Dalit Christians, the Government has not responded," the pastoral letter said
This is outrageous demand. The Constitution provided reservations to former untouchables to enable them to overcome historic social disadvantages which kept them economically and educationally backward. Howver, Christianity sought to convert them on the plea that it did not discriminate between believers, and hence low caste believers would loose the social stigma of their original caste. Now to ask reservation under the guise that they are Dalit Christian is Ridiculous.

Any decision to extending reservation benefits to Dalit Christians could deal a death blow to the Indian nation as it would actively encourage conversions. Dalits who were lured to the Christian fold to better their social, economic and educational status should rethink their move and return to their traditional cultural moorings.

In India it Pays better to be an Antinational

DMK government in Tamil Nadu is arranging for 1998 Coimbatore blast accused Abdul Nasser Mahdani’s Ayurvedic massages. The 1998 Coimbatore serial blasts had targeted BJP leader L K Advani killed 58 people and left several more injured. This move is being supported by CPM and Congress in Kerala. Actually, Things didnot stop at this, the Kerala Assembly passed a unprecended resolution requesting the Centre to adopt a "humanitarian attitude" and grant parole to People's Democratic Party leader Abdul Nazer Madhani.

It is not surprising that
in the early nineties, Marxist guru EMS Namboodiripad surprised Kerala when he compared this fire-breathing cleric Abdul Nasser Mahdani’s with Mahatma Gandhi.

Mahdani is getting treated by a team of 10 masseurs and four senior Ayurvedic doctors. The 35-day treatment, which began on July 5, costs nearly Rs 50,000. Needles to say all this at taxpayers expense.

The most outrageous act was
DMK government quietly permitted Soofiya, Mahdani’s wife to sit in on her husband’s treatment for two hours as ayurvedic principles demanded that “someone close” to the patient administer the “internal” medicines. This, despite an arrest warrant pending against Soofiya in a case relating to her allegedly smuggling in a SIM card for her husband.

It seems in India it Pays better to be an Antinational
