of the subject.
Hinduism and Islam are two antithetical religions. While Islam
is an aggressive and 'without pity, without remorse' type of faith,
Hinduism is a friendly, peaceable and benign religion. Islam, by virtue
of its strict canons, encouraged discipline and unity within its adherents
but Hinduism, by virtue of the infamous caste system was, intrinsically,
divisive in nature. Islam attracted new followers by its liberal 'polygyny'
(polygamy by males) and superior position allotted for male believers
compared to females. This, probably, was one of the main attractions for
such fast proliferation of Islam. Hinduism, with its myriad rituals, and
humiliating caste system, however, seemed too complicated and
repulsive, to ordinary seekers.
The Hindu religion had its roots into the far away mist of history.
Hinduism was, basically, liberal towards other faiths and tolerated,
respected and communicated with other faiths. Islam, on the other
hand, did not take kindly towards other religions and persons of other
faiths and called everyone, who was not a Muslim, a 'kafir' (unbeliever)
and to undertake 'jihad' (armed struggle) against them was, not only
justified but was the bounden duty of every Muslim. 'Jehad' was used as
a multi-purpose vehicle. It was employed for raising morale and prestige
of Muslims against Hindus in battle, forging unity among the
communities and even among Muslim states against Hindu state(s) as
well as for spread of Islam 'by the sword'. Hinduism, on the other hand,
had no such inbuilt religious edict or instrument. We have seen in the
battles how the Muslim kings from Mehmud of Ghazni
through Muhammad-bin-Tughlaq to the Deccan Sultantes
Confederation against Vijayanagar invoked
'jehad' in order to lift the zeal of their soldiers
against Hindu 'infidels'. On the opposite, our history, brings out
glaringly, the inability of Hindu states to unite against Muslim invaders.
of the remaining 'good' Muslims have failed to start any movement to
oppose the 'bad' types. So it happened in the case of Nazis of Hitler and
but even the Christians and 'Shia Muslims' are perseucuted and driven out.
Today the general impression is that the Hindu Agenda, (if there is any) is
attaining majority of population (more than 50%) and then sort out the Hindus.
It is, therefore, the bounden duty of every 'good Muslim' to unite and start a
liberal movement among 'good Muslims' so as to create an atmosphere where
both communities could live in brotherhood with each other. The onus of doing
so remains on the Muslims because of the offensive edicts of Islam. The earlier
such a movement starts the better it would be for the nation!
Thank you. Of course I know that, and guess thats what gives us some hope.On Fri, Oct 2, 2015 at 1:00 AM, ashok kumar <email@example.com> wrote:Post: "firstname.lastname@example.org"Seems Mustafa , kudos to you for bringing it all out so lucidly. Like all Muslims in India are not "Dawood " variety , all Hindus aren't hardcore hindutva fundamentalists either. And this I say as a proud , practising Hindu from the heartland , U.P. Please rest assured that I don't represent the minority but the majority amongst Hindus though we may have differing eating preference or praying methodology than yours. So what ? You are as much an Indian as me or any Sikh , Christian or a Parsi etc. Every Dadri or Muzaffar Nagar shames and saddens us as much . It also alarms us as much. I don't have the gift which the Almighty has blessed you with , to express my feelings adequately in words. Hope you understand my pain , anguish and sorrow .
