INDIAN MUSLIMS : BABAR OR RAM ?

Indian Muslims are today at a crossroad. The bombs attacks in Hyderabad, may have been guided by Pakistan, but could not have happened – like all recent Islamic attacks on India – without the strong support and involvement of Indian Muslims. Once again, we see that the silent Muslim majority of India – remains silent. Instead of universally condemning violence against their motherland, India.

The question that Indian Muslims should ask themselves now is simple: “who are we” ? Amongst the 120 millions of Muslims in India, only a tiny percentage descends from the Turks, Afghans, or Iranians who invaded India. The majority of them are converted Muslims. And converted how ? By terror, coercion, force, bloodshed. The ancestors of today’s Indian Muslims are probably those who suffered the most from the Arab and Muslim invasions. Those Hindus and Sikhs who chose not to convert, took refuge in their faith, fought together and kept their pride and honor. The first two generations of those who converted must have endured hell: for they certainly did not convert out of conviction, but because they had no choice: their daughters and wives were raped, sons taken into slavery, parents killed. It is sad today that their descendants have sometimes made theirs the intolerant cry of Islam.

Do Indian Muslims understand that they were part of the richest, most advanced, most tolerant and generous civilization of ancient times. That their culture was so advanced that it had spread all over the world ?Do they realize that more and more archeological an historical discoveries are pointing out that the genocide of Hindus by Muslim invaders is without parallel. The conquest of Afghanistan in the year 1000, was followed by the annihilation of the entire Hindu population there; indeed, the region is still called Hindu Kush, ‘Hindu slaughter’. The Bahmani sultans in central India, made it a rule to kill 100.000 Hindus a year. In 1399, Teimur killed 100.000 Hindus in a single day. Professor K.S. Lal has estimated that the Hindu population decreased by 8O million between the year 1000 and 1525, probably the biggest holocaust in history. Surely, many of present day Indian Muslims’ ancestors must have been among those slaughtered.

Islam cannot be wished away. As Sri Aurobindo said “Mahomed’s mission was necessary, else we might have ended by thinking, in the exaggeration of our efforts at self-purification, that earth was meant only for the monk and the city created as a vestibule for the desert”…. . Thus Indian Muslims have to keep their faith and any attempt by Hindus to convert them back is not only futile but counterproductive. But the question to be asked to them is: “what kind of Islam do you want to practice ? An Islam which looks westwards, towards a foreign city, the Mecca, swears by a Scripture, the Koran, which is not only not relevant to India, but which was meant for people living 1500 years ago, in a language which is not Indian ? Or do they want to practice an Islam which is “Indianized”, which accepts the reality of other Gods, as Hinduism and Buddhism accept that there have been other avatars than Ram or Buddha.

Do India Muslims want to worship Babar, a man who destroyed everything which was good, beautiful and holy and lived by the power of violence, or do they want to imbibe the qualities of Ram, who believed in the equality of all, who gave-up all riches and honors of the world because he thought his brother deserved the throne more than him ?
Whatever the West says, which is obsessed with China, India, a vibrant, English speaking, pro-western democracy is going to become the superpower of the 21st century. Do Indian Muslims want to participate in that great adventure ? Do they want to feel that they are part of India, that they are
Indians ?

Nowadays it is politically not correct to say anything against Islam. You are immediately labeled anti-Muslim and dismissed as a “rightist”. No matter if you are only reporting the fact that there is a real problem with Islam in South Asia: that India is surrounded by fundamentalists states: Afghanistan and Pakistan, while more moderates like Bangladesh, tend to close an eye to anti-Indian activities; that Indian Muslims sometimes tend to put their religion before their country; and that Kashmiris, far from being the persecuted that the Foreign Press likes to portray, are actually paying the price for having allowed Afghan and Pakistani Sunnis radicalize what used to be a more gentle and tolerant Islam and left their Hindu brothers and sisters being butchered and chased away from their ancestral land.

Thus the question has to be asked again: do Indian Muslims want to be like Babar or like Ram? This choice will shape their future for generations to come. It is maybe only in India, that Islam can come to terms with itself and accept the reality of other faiths. Otherwise, if it continues on the path of confrontation, not only in India, but with the whole western world, it is surely going towards self-destruction.

  1. true. also true that if one chooses to be Babar, she/he hs to bear with other Babars n if one chooses to be Ram, she/he is destined to enjoy the company of Rams

  2. Indian Muslims will cease to be Muslims once they embrace Lord Ram, because accepting another God or personality other then Mohammed is heresy, blasphemy, punishable by death under Islamic Law.

    Please post a blog on why the “Intellectual Elitist” Hindus never give a damn thought abou the things u mentioned

  4. Excellently written!!!! I agree people hesitate to speak about Islam and get labelled by the pseudo sickulars as anti secular!!!!!! But what u said is what is needed for every Indian to understand…. progress can only happen if all of us as Indians stand united!!! for the really bad things to happen u dont just need bad people, u just need good people being silent!!

  5. yes all Ms are our half brothers/warriors didnt bring female troops /humanity is one/God/is one/earth is one pl help save it/time is running out

  6. i just heard your interview in newslaundry.that’s what most literate nationalistic hindus are trying to say from a long time but are not getting any proper platform(except net) to express that.and out of frustation are filling newspaper comments and blogs who ever criticize them and instantly they are termed as extremists,anti-india ,anti secular.whereas everybody knows about the deeds of muslims and media don’t give a damn to acknowledge it.and they continue to kill with impunity.there was so much anger against vishwaroopam by muslims and in case of hyderabad they are silent.

  7. ravi has a wonderful point….of course muslims are a slightly silly lot but the need to worry about them is mad and gautier does it like i saw on another post of his is to get into the BJP, sell his cheap lying books in India….he may get hired as an ambassador to france or maybe afghanistan or pakistan

  8. i do not know, where is the confusion.
    if it is a choice between babar and ram, then by default the answer would be babar, according to holy quraan.
    i do not know why the hindus, do not read quraan’s open message.

  9. it is fallacy to say that muslims conquered india.they have only got north india.they cant enter east south india.it was british who saved hindus from total annihilation brutality conversion.if englishman wud not have come then by now all hindus were muslims.hindus are cowards passive impotent nloody creeps lazy corrupt to core. they suffer such humiliation by mughal and nowcongress.hindu must get polarised united consolidated and force all parties to bow down to them for vote else get out.

  10. Here is my advice to all muslims- just read what muslims themselves have to say about their faith. Google the following: formermuslimsunited.com, faithfreedom.org, wafa sultan, nonie darwish, ayaan hirsi ali etc etc. Then you cant call it hate speech. Muslims are a terror for all, mostly because the majority remain silent leaving a small group of militant to run amock. where are the condemnation by muslim leaders on these blasts?

  11. When you quote one lakh in figures it should be 100,000 and not 100.000, REPEAT NOT 100.000 which after the decimal is only a hundred. So please be very clear about the decimal.

  12. Muslims only go so far as they are allowed to. When Hindus transplant some balls onto themselves, the Muslims will learn to respect them. At this point, Hindus are not worthy of respect. I wonder how long before India becomes the Islamic Republic of India. You Hindus have no shame, no pride, no honor! You deserve your pathetic lot in this world as the slaves of Muslim fanatics.

  13. Very true indeed. Hindus are their own worst enemies and cowards to boot. Instead if supporting Narendra Modi, who would make for the most fitting prime minister in the history of India, many of them, masquerading as faux secularists and human rights activists, are doing everything in their power to vilify, demonize and sabotage the prospects of Modi. Vote bank politics should be dumped into the waste bin of history.

  14. I’ve noticed that whenever I talk to Hindus and express these same sentiments, these Hindu cowards are quick to claim the sari of “secularist.” Like “secular” is some clever way of appearing noble while actually submitting to Islamic buggery….The key to Hindu salvation is for them to learn how to behave like a Pakistani. Pakistan can’t manufacture a car but they sure can kick the ass of 900 million so-called Hindus at will.

  15. If all the Hindus unite, then no Pakistani or home spun Jihadi would ever dare harm a single hair on a Hindu’s head.

  16. IF is the operative term there. Hindus are too foolish and cowardly to ever do that. They’re too busy praying for the gods to do something about it.

    Very crystalised article. It is indeed a shame that educated, literate muslims of Indian, who have chosen of their own will to remain in India as Indian citizens, are behaving like so called hindu cowards by not standing upto their tiny minority of terrorist/jihadis muslims. Unfortunately, congress party on the other hand is helping jihadis by encouraging them to form extremest groups in India itself and operate freely to help Pakistani jihadis whose ultimate aim is to convert India into Pakistan.
    They may well succeed if Indian National Congress and its corrupt allies are brought back into power.
    As for the literate and educated, broad minded majority of muslim who have opted to be in India, they MUST assert themselves and stop Pakistanis and fellow muslims of India who indulge into jihadi movement, to STOP doing that as in the ultimate analysis, they will be loosers and ruin the holy name of Islam.
    Hindus, alas, as some one rightly says, will suffer if they don’t unite to fight jihadis.

  18. the uneducated, unenlightened, Hindu-hating pro-pakistani , India-betrayer Muslims will never leave their white skull caps and blue lungis and praying and bowing towards Saudi Arabia and Pakistan with their asses towards Mother India while offering namaz and after that they take to insulting 33 crore Hindu deities not knowing that they are the earthly manifestations of the one and only supreme God:- Param Bramaan.
