Islamic Terrorism in India

Most Muslims are not terrorists, but most terrorists are Muslims

Assam — Anger now at all Muslims, not just Bangladesh migrants

Infiltration in Assam gets a religious hue
Rajesh Sinha, Friday, October 10, 2008

GUWAHATI: For the first time in Assam, the resentment against immigrants and Bangladeshi infiltrators is wholly directed at Muslims in general. People in the riot-hit areas do not talk of migrant Muslims or Bangladeshi infiltrators any more. Be it Muslims or people of other faiths the conversation here is about ‘Muslims’ and ‘the others’. They do, however, agree that the root cause was infiltration — an indictment of the government’s failure to check it.

Bodos at a relief camp in Rauwta, Darrang district, said Muslims from the area attacked them and set their houses on fire in retaliation against a campaign to send Bangladeshi Muslims, and not Assamese Muslims, back.

Their explanation: the Assamese Muslims have developed social relations and marriage alliances with the Bangladeshis who live alongside them in Muslims localities. This was bound to happen if the Bangladeshis were allowed to settle down here, the refugees add. “They are all the same now, and they attacked all non-Muslims,” said a young man at the camp.

A stony silence greeted tribal affairs minister Promila Rani Brahma, a Bodo herself, when she urged refugees at a relief camp to go back to their villages. No one took her promise to ensure security seriously. Villagers said they dared not leave the camp, as people were dragged out of buses and killed. Many such tales were rumours, but the fear was real.

Tension is palpable here. Driving along the road one comes across rows upon rows of burnt down houses and sheds, damaged farm equipment and completely abandoned villages.

Fear reigns also at a Muslim relief camp some kilometres from the one the minister visited. Thousands of Muslims are living there. One of them, clearly an Assamese Muslim, said his village was sandwiched between Bodo villages on both sides. The Bodos had been threatening them and asking them to leave – or face consequences, he said.

According to him, the Bodos waited till Eid, on October 2, and then attacked them on Friday, October 3.

Locals also complain that Bangladeshi infiltrators have changed the indigenous Muslim population in one way. Earlier it was difficult to distinguish between Assamese Hindus and Muslims. But now the Muslims’ trademark skull cap, long kurtas and lungis has  compounded the “We vs They” crisis.

    Assam should’ve been with East Pakistan from the beginning to keep this blood shedding from happening. It’s unfortunate Hindus and Muslims are fighting like; our ancestor lived together in peace before the British.

    I am appalled by the above comments. Muslims are Indians too. We should be ashamed of our Immigration system and do something about it to avoid future incidents. Radical and irrational steps like chasing out all Muslims or ditching Assam from it’s statehood are NEVER the solutions. Immigration must be controled, migrants already settled in India must be given legal status and the sleeping authorities must be spanked back into work. Ignoring issues for too long leads to what is happening now in Assam. No shortcut answers to this issue, like chasing people out. Thank you!

  4. OPEN LETTER TO THE PRESIDENT OF PAKISTAN.
    BY A BHARTIYA MUSLIM

    I am a Muslim from Mumbai, who is confused and upset because we are forced to follow and believe of the unrequired and forceful Islamism on us, by various fanatic Muslim religious outfits.
    The reason of me writing this way to you is that in India and in Pakistan, majority of the people are living in the same situation, Thanks to our great so called Rehnumas.(Leaders).
    Since my birth, I have seen one hand which is coming forward always for peace and prosperity, is from India, and your side of hand is always in disguise. I do not understand why? And wish to understand your side of opinion on the following question which is not allowing me to sleep in peace of my home. My only request to you is that kindly read my letter of request till the end.
    Question as follows :-
    1—ARE FANATICAL MUSLIM RELIGIOUS OUTFITS IN PAKISTAN REPRESENTING ISLAM IN TRUE FORM AND FOR THE WHOLE WORLD OF ISLAM ?

    In my opinion, I have always seen and read that so called radical fanatic groups in Pakistan are worried of Muslims in India and across the world. They think that Muslims across the globe are in dire need of their help, guidance and cooperation, and if these fanatic Muslim religious outfits will not help, Muslims around the globe will vanish.
    For your information, we the Muslims in India are the safest Muslims in the world, because we have full liberty of practicing our religion and religious obligations, which has been guaranteed by our Constitution.
    But I think in Pakistan, it is next to impossible to follow your own path freely and what I have read and seen that people are even killed while they are performing their Namaaz in the mosque. ARE KILLING MUSLIMS IN MOSQUE BY THE MUSLIMS, WHILE THEY ARE PRAYING JUSTIFIED BY ANY CHANCE OR WAY.(ISLAMIC OR ETHICAL).?
    We can proudly say that nothing of this inhuman and Unislamic incident happened in India by any of the Muslim.
    We are approximately 22 Crores Muslims living peacefully along with other communities in India. Unfortunately this Peace is always tested and Disturbed by your Evil Interference
    We are proud to be an Indian. we have one of the best education system in India and we have one of the most renowned Muslim Universities, Colleges, Institutions, Hospitals, Libraries, Trusts, Islamic Scholars, Artifactoes, Qaris, Haafiz – e – Quran, Religious Bodies, Aalims, Mushtahids, Scientists, Doctors, Intellectuals, Legal Endorsers and above all The Peers, Wali Allah and what not. Alhamdollilah.
    It is one of the customs of Islam for a Muslim to follow, i.e. EVERY MUSLIM SHOULD LOVE HIS COUNTRY ABOVE EVERYTHING ELSE .AND MUSLIMS EVERY WHERE IN THE WORLD FOLLOWS THE SAME.SO AS WE INDIAN MUSLIMS.WE LOVE OUR COUNTRY THE MOST AND CAN DO ANYTHING FOR THE SAFETY OF OUR COUNTRY.
    So kindly tell me that is it possible for us Indian to follow your type of Islam which I am sure is not true to its sense. As I understand Islam in true form is a religion of Peace, Brotherhood, Equality, Kindness, Avoidance, Unity, Forgiveness and Prosperity.
    The Qur’an upholds the sanctity and absolute value of human life and states in Surah 6: Al-An’ am: 151:
    “do not take any human being’s life (the life) which God has declared to be sacred — otherwise than in (the pursuit of) justice: this has He enjoined upon you so that you might use your reason”
    I also clearly remember the Hadees of Prophet Mohammed (S.A.W.S.).He says “I can feel the fragrance of Imaan coming in with the breeze from Hind” and who can forget the Akhari Khutba of Imam Hussein. Before his martyrdom in karbala, the Holy Imam said: “You have killed all my companions, my children, my brothers and even my little baby; now I tell you to leave me, I will migrate to Yemen, to Iran or even to the far off Hind (India), stain not your hands with my blood, which is the blood of the Holy Prophet himself, you will not have salvation”.
    This proves that even Prophet and His Grand Son had love and affection for (Hind) India.
    Mr. President, on 14th August 1947, as soon as you became Pakistan, you ceased to be the part of this HIND, for which the Blessings are bestowed by Prophet Mohamed (S.A.W.S.) and his beloved Grand Son.
    You are kindly requested to pay your kind attention 100 times and discuss this with your Olemas and Fanatical Outfits before you interfere with the internal affairs of Indian Muslims, who are blessed and gifted by the Pillars of True Islam. Kindly don’t play with your eternal life henceforth.
    We the Muslims in India and hopefully around the world will be highly obliged and thankful to you if you, if henceforth your unwanted interference is avoided in future.
    Thank you for giving your precious time and thought to my letter.
    Was-salaam,
    Indian Muslim.
    Bharat Zindabad.
