Minority Extremism

Two news reports caught my eye while going through the news today morning.

Conversions In Madanapalli, Andhra Pradesh:

It is against Indian Law to promote religious conversions in Schools, Religious places and Government Hospitals. Looks like the Law doesn't work for Minorities. In the town of Madanapalli, Chittoor District, Andhra Pradesh, Christians belonging to the Pentacostal Church, under the leadership of their Pastor, attached a mike set to the Lord Rama Temple and started Christian Prayers.

The Temple priest warned them and the Christians kept going. Then members of Rashtriya Swayam Sevak Sangh arrived and kicked out the Christians. There was a minor scuffle and after sometime, Christians vacated the place.

This news hardly came in the main paper. If Hindus have violently reacted, then it would have become an international news with the US giving a lesson to the Indian Consul, Human Rights Watch shouting from the roof tops and at Home, the Communists and the Human Right Groups dancing on the roads protesting against the attacks.

Why is this difference of attitude ?? No one talks when minorities try to take undue advantage while every one cries foul when the majority reacts ?? Who is going to think about the rights of the Majority community ??

If the human right groups and the Commies don't come out protesting the conversions, then they should be ready to face a backlash.

BJP Member of Parliament Attacked:

A Member of Parliament (MP) from Gorakhpur, Uttar Pradesh was attacked by violent Muslim groups at Azamgarh while the MP is on his way to attend Anti Terrorism Rally at Azamgarh.

Recently, the Gujarat Police arrested Abdul Basher, a key conspirator in the Ahmedabad Blasts case who belongs to the banned Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI). In this context Islamic Fundamentalists arranged a meeting in Azamgarh supporting Abdul Basher. Pro-Hindu groups planned this Anti Terrorism Rally condemning the earlier meeting by Islamic Fundamentalists. The MP's convoy was attacked with sticks and some vehicles were burned killing a Hindu.

The above two incidents are proof's that in India, it is not the minorities, but the majority community is in danger.

Steps need to be taken that such a scenario doesn't happen where there would be a major backlash from Hindus which might go out of hand and engulf the country in religious riots.

It is the responsibility of all the political parties including the Congress, the Communists along with so-called Secular Parties like the Telugu Desam Party, Samajwadi Party, Bahujan Samaj Party and the Dravida Munnetra Kazagam (DMK).
