Gandhi, Godse, Murder, Terrorism and Pragya Thakur

By: Parmanand Pandey, Advocate, Supreme Court (Sectetary General IPC)

Is it not strange that those who have been abusing in the filthiest language have today become the votaries of Gandhi in denouncing Sadhvi Pragya Thakur? She did not say anything about Gandhi. She only said that Godse was a nationalist. Nobody in his or her senses would justify the killing of Mahatma Gandhi. It was the most brutal cold blood heinous and dastardly crime committed by Godse, which shocked the conscience of the entire nation. One might have had differences – even the most serious differences and may be even the legitimate ones – with Gandhi but he had no right or justification to murder him. This is no time – and no place here – to enumerate and discuss the bona fide mistakes that Gandhi might have committed and which might have prompted Godse to commit a henious crime of murder. We are on something else here.

Mahatma Gandhi was revered by the Hindus although he was hated in equal measure by the Muslims barring a few. M.A. Jinnah had declared him to be the leader of only Hindus and not of the Muslims of India. He had claimed the sole proprietary rights of the leadership of Muslims. It is very difficult to forget what Ali brothers had said about Gandhi that any Muslim is better than him, although Gandhi foolishly fought along with them for the restoration of Khilafat in turkey. Surprisingly, a university has been established with the help of Mulayam Singh Yadav in Rampur in the name of that rabidly communal leader.

There is a difference between a ‘Murderer’ and a ‘Terrorist’. Godse was a murderer but not a terrorist. It is not necessary that a terrorist will be a nationalist. Even otherwise, there is no concept of Nationalism for all the varieties of terrorists that we have come to know so far in the course of history.

Nathuram Godse was, without doubt, a Nationalist a Patriot but not a Terrorist. He was a killer for which he was tried and sent to gallows. The purpose of a killer is to kill a person because of certain reasons but the purpose of a terrorist is to create terror in the minds of the general public. Godse killed Mahatma Gandhi but he did not want to terrorise the general public. If one goes through the testimony of Godse during his trial in the Court of Shimla, there will no doubt in the mind of anybody that he was a nationalist, though bigoted one. His aim was to protect Mother India at any cost. Since Mahatma Gandhi was largely responsible for the vivisection of the country into India and Pakistan apart from it, he was very lenient towards Pakistan in giving many concessions. Mahatma Gandhi had even undertaken a fast to give Rs. 56 crores to Pakistan for the construction of its Capital.

Sadhvi Pragya Thakur has not justified the killing of Mahatma Gandhi by Nathuram Godse, she has simply said that he was/is and will continue to be a patriot. So, what is wrong in it?

The Communist Party of India was always opposed to Mahatma Gandhi but now they are branding Sadhvi Pragya as a terrorist Not long ago, the supporters of Kansiram and Mayawati had ransacked and vandalised the Samadhi of Mahatma Gandhi in Delhi and declared him to be the enemies of the Dalits. Ms Mayawati has been openly chiding Mahatma Gandhi in all her meetings by saying that Gandhi used to say ‘untouchables’ to the Harijans, then was he a son of Shaitan? Abuses of Dr. Ambedkar for Gandhi are well known. He called Gandhi a cunning politician who did not do anything for Dalits. He even said, “People rever Gandhi as a saint but I know Gandhi as a person and he is crooked in his mind.”

Now when this Sannyasin has simply said that Godse’s patriotism could not be questioned, whole secular intelligentsia and the opposition parties have risen up in arms. Lo and behold! A person like Digvijay Singh who coined the word Hindu Terrorism is also criticising her.

The people of India now know the doublespeak duplicity and hypocrisy of these people and this is the reason that people of India have largely endorsed her statement Godse was a Patriot, which she said in response to a blockheaded film actor, who described Godse as the first Hindu terrorist

Before You Vote, Go by Conduct of Politicians and Not their Words

By: Parmanand Pandey, Advocate, Supreme Court (Secretary General IPC)

Every election brings some nuggets of wisdom for electorates. Many things are spoken by the leaders; some contain information, some disinformation but most of them are wild allegations. People understand them in their own way to finally take any decision. However, this election has thrown up some points which are very important for every electorate of the country. Let us start with an apolitical interview of Narendra Modi given to a Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar.

During his interview, he narrated an interesting but very revealing story which has completely debunked and dismantled the cover of hypocrisy worn by most of the Samajwadi leaders to befool the people. He told that once he got down at the Pune railway station and started going on foot to the nearby RSS office. One auto rickshaw wala followed him for some distance. Then he asked him (Modi) to sit in the rickshaw because he was away from the public gaze. The rickshaw wala told him that he mistook him to be a Samajwadi because they avoid boarding rickshaws at the railway to demonstrate their simplicity and frugality. He told Modi that hypocrisy is the hallmark of every socialist.

 By narrating this story in spontaneity, he unmasked the duplicity and the fake character of the socialists in his own inimitable style. History bears ample examples when most of the socialists, barring a few respectable exceptions, have proven to be utterly dishonest. They have done immense damage to the social fabric of the country. Workers, farmers and students have all been cheated by them. Take any socialist and you will find that he/she will talk about simplicity, equality and brotherhood but in the heart of his or her heart, he/she will be the greediest, rank opportunist and hypocrite of the top order. A socialist often speaks against the greed of the money but look at any of present Samajwadi and you will be flabbergasted to know that how they have milked the public money, whenever or where ever they came to power, to amass the wealth; be it Mulayam Singh Yadav, his son Akhilesh Yadav, Ram Bilas Paswan or Lalu Prasad Yadav or even George Fernandes to name a few.

 Most of the socialists speak against the casteism, but they are so casteist to the core which stinks to the high heaven. The similar duplicity is also found, more or less, among the so-called Gandhians. What an irony that those who publicly advocate for the annihilation of the caste they survive only on the casteism; again be it Mulayam Singh Yadav, Lalu Yadav or Mayawati (she is the follower of Baba Saheb Ambedkar, who wrote a book on the annihilation of castes, which was based on wrong premises’ but that is a different issue).  Socialists have worked as the bulwark of divisive and communal policies regardless of the fact whether they are in the Congress or in Socialist or Communist parties.

 Can anybody deny that two illustrious politicians of the country namely; Baba Saheb Bhim Rao Ambedkar and Dr Ram Manohar Lohia sowed the seeds casteism in India, which has toxified the society even after more than 70 years of independence? Otherwise, there cannot be any reason when Kanhaiya Kumar is asking for votes in the name of being a Bhumihar and Kejriwal flaunt to be a Baniya.

 Another thing that we have seen in this election is to repeat the falsehood ad nauseam attributing it to somebody which he or she never said. For example, it has been drilled into the minds of the people during the campaigning of 2014 elections that Narendra Modi had promised Rs. 15 Lakhs to be transferred to everybody’s account and he would give two crore white collar jobs every year. Nobody knows where did he say and when did he say? Each and every word of the Narendra Modi, especially from 2014, has been audio and video graphed but nobody has been able to produce even single audio or video reminding of his promises.

 We have also seen that the Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has proved himself to a Doctor of lies. During the last assembly election, he had said that every ticket seeker would be interviewed if he/ she has read his book ‘Swaraj’ or not, although this criterion was thrown to the wind at the time of ticket distribution. It is a different matter that the book epitomises and exposes his colossal ignorance about the history, politics or even the constitution of India. This book is not even worth the paper on which it has been printed. I have also read this book on the recommendation of a very dear Advocate friend of mine in the Supreme Court. Look at the shamelessness of this man who says all the problems of Delhi would be solved in a jiffy if the full statehood is granted to it. This man has been telephoning almost everybody in Delhi through his pre-recorded voice that the BJP government has, in cahoots, with the Election Commission got millions of names removed from the electoral list but, it was found to be totally false.

  One is compelled to ask a question that during his tenure of more than four years of governance, how many new colleges have been opened in Delhi? He will turn the other way around. How many hospitals have been opened by him? Then he will have no reply? Except for some third grade Mohalla Clinics which are run with the help of half-baked doctors, there has been nothing to his credit to improve the health services.

 His contribution to improving the standard of education has been negligible. The departments working under the Delhi government particularly, the Labour and the Revenue Departments are corrupt to the core. So how can this man be believed? The answer is not far to seek.

Ignoramus Katju Opens Mouth About Hindi

By: Parmanand Pandey, Advocate, Supreme Court (Secretary General IPC)

Markandey Katju, a former judge of the Supreme Court of India, is a well- known megalomaniac. One often wonders how a person of such deranged mental faculties managed to become the judge of the High Court and then got elevated to the Supreme Court.? As a judge of the Supreme Court, everybody used to laugh at his idiotic comments. He has not delivered any judgement, which could be said to be a landmark and have any citationary value.

Anyway, after his retirement, he managed to become the Chairman of the Press Council of India and always tried to browbeat the members as if he was still a judge of the Supreme Court.
On one occasion he is reported to have said that most of the journalists were fools. He has had the same opinion about politicians as well. On another occasion, he came out with an outlandish statement that majority of Indians were idiots.

He boasts that he has been a voracious reader and a book worm, which he certainly is. But it is equally true that he lacks his own mind. He is often found to be giving simplistic solutions to the problems that people laugh at him. In law, he will frequently quote Jeremy Bentham, JS Mill, Roscoe Pound, HLA Hart etc. to impress upon others.

His idiocies are innumerable. He will lecture on secularism, tried to prove Neta ji Subhash Chandra Bose and Mahatma Gandhi as the agents of the Britishers. He comes out with his hair-brained idea of India, Pakistan and Bangladesh again becoming one country.

This shameless man says that he is a Kashmiri Brahmin but takes proud of being a beef eater.

Now he is said to have written a blog in which he has opined that Hindi has no ‘Dum’ to compete with Urdu. This halfwit has no understanding of Hindi, although he comes from Prayagraj, which has been the hub of Hindi language and literature. This shows that this imbecile has not read Hindi books at all and to prove his point, like a dolt, he translated any couplet of Faiz Ahmed Faiz into Hindi and jumps like a moron to exclaim that look how inferior Hindi is to Urdu.

Our intention is not to compare Hindi with Urdu, but the undeniable fact is that Hindi is miles ahead of Urdu. It appears that he has not read Prem Chand, Bhagawati Charan Verma, Yashpal, Rangeya Raghav, Ram Dhari Singh Dinkar, Ram Chandra Shukl, Hazari Prasad Dwivedi, Jai Shankar Prasad  Maithili Sharan Gupt, Surya Kant  Tripathi Nirala, Sumitra Nandan Pant, Maha Devi Verma and score of others, what to say of Tulasi Das, the tallest amongst the tall.

While Urdu still remains a language of Shaireees (poems) and stories; Hindi has developed into a formidable language of science, technology, commerce, trade, law, agriculture, forestry, horticulture, literature, music and art etc. It has inexhaustible support of Sanskrit and innumerable dialects but those who are blinds they cannot see the reality. The day is not far away when Hindi will become the most popular and developed language of the world.

But even then, the nincompoops like Markandeya Katju will not be able to see the reality. But again, that is not the drawback of the great Hindi, but the fault lies in persons like Katju.

India must help Sri Lanka in Crushing Fangs of Terrorism

By: Parmanand Pandey, Advocate, Supreme Court (Secretary General IPC)

The horrific terrorist attacks in many Hotels and Churches of the small but beautiful island country of Sri Lanka have left almost every Indian dazed and shell-shocked. Our country has seen innumerable serial blasts in temples, educational institutions, bazars and other public places. Not long ago, every Indian used to avoid going even to Railway, Bus stations or other crowded places, unless it was very necessary, for fear of bomb blasts. Thanks to the present Central Government of Modi that terrorists have largely been cornered. One can find the watchful eyes of the security forces that deter the terrorists from hitting their targets. The public has now become more awakened, the use of modern technology like CCTV cameras has also helped in tackling terrorism.

But as they say, no amount of security, howsoever and vigilant and strict, can prevent the determined terrorist attacks. And that is what has exactly happened in Sri Lanka, where one terrorist in a hotel was found to be a suicide bomber.

Therefore, unless and until the genesis of terrorism is eradicated, it will be difficult to fully root it out.

Terrorism is not a law and order problem; it is an ideological toxic. So, it must be detoxified on the one hand, and the terror of the security forces must be struck in the hearts of terrorists or budding terrorists. They must be made mortally afraid that if they hit, then they will be hit with more force and will not go unpunished. In Sanskrit, it is called ‘shathe shathyam samacharet’ (a rogue should be dealt with roguery).

The Northern and Eastern part of Sri Lanka, which was practically cut off from the rest of the country due to terrorism could be brought back to mainstream mainly due to the ‘tit for tat tactics’ adopted by her.

However, there is a difference between the previous terrorist attacks and the present one. The previous Tamil terrorists were getting support from a very tiny section of Tamils in India and their replenishment was totally strangulated by the tough policies of India. But this one is a part of Islamic terrorism, which has made the lives of the people across the world a virtual hell. Therefore, it has to be dealt with an iron hand with the support of the international communities.

In the last two and half decades, radical Islam has spread very fast, mainly in eastern Sri Lanka. These Islamic clergies and forces have taken full advantage of the unrest of many years in Sri Lanka. Some 28 years ago, when I visited Sri Lanka for the first time, I had found not many mosques and Islamic seminaries or madrasas but now their number has increased beyond all proportions. Only two years back I had met a large number of Urdu speaking Muslims in eastern Sri Lanka. I asked them out of curiosity as to where they learnt Urdu, they told me in the Gulf countries, they learnt it from Indians and Pakistanis. The Gulf money is being poured to build mosques and madrassas, which is also responsible for the radicalization of Islamic boys.

Sri Lankans are peaceful by nature and the influence of Buddhism has made most of the Singhalese very docile and unobtrusive. Most of them are profiles in courtesy.

It is in the interest of India that Peace must prevail in Sri Lanka so that she develops much faster. While the whole country is solidly behind the people of Sri Lanka, the Government of India must ensure that all help is extended to her in effectively and stringently dealing with the menace of terrorism, which is again raising its fangs in a different but dangerous manifestation.

A la Martyrdom: In Re Hemant Karkare / Sadhvi Pragya

By: Parmanand Pandey, Advocate, Supreme Court (Secretary General IPC)

Sadhvi Pragya is a candidate of BJP contesting for Parliament from Bhopal in Madhya Pradesh state and her rival is Digvijay Singh nominated as a candidate by Congress party. Sadhvi Pragya has courted a controversy by making a statement that she was brutally tortured by the police officer named Hemant Karkare (who was then leading ATS – anti terrorist squad – team of Maharashtra police officers); that she had cursed Karkare for his illegal and inhuman treatment of her; and that as a result of her curse, Karkare was killed within few days by the bullets of Pakistani terrorists who had attacked Mumbai Taj Hotel in 2008, known as 26/11 of India. Questions have been raised by many so-called neutral intellectuals in general and by Congress quarters in particular alleging that Hemant Karkare was martyred in performing his official duty and Sadhvi Pragya has insulted his memory by making such statement.

It is perfectly possible that he might have illegally tortured a woman held under his custody and also he was killed by the terrorists – enemies of India – while performing his duty and, thus, was martyred. Both aspects may be facts and may be stated so without any undertone of sentiments.

This controversy has arisen today because Sadhvi Pragya has been fighting election against her arch rival. It may evoke sentiments from rival camps today in the matter of the estimation of the merits of Hemant Karkare. But it was not so way back in 2008 while so estimating his merits as a police officer performing his official duty. Fortunately, information technology while recording the events narrated by a person has made it possible to also record its date and time. Here is an old estimation.

This is from the blog that I wrote way back in 2008 after the Mumbai terror attack. Even at that time also Hemant Karkare’s unprofessionalism was evident. His role in combating terrorism was next to nil. Sadhvi Pragya Thakur is new to politics and she cannot mask her feelings. Therefore, when she said that she had cursed Hemant Karkare, she was politically incorrect but how can you expect a person to conceal her/his agonies, when she was immeasurably tortured by an officer of Karkare’s rank. The link of the blog is given below. However, for the convenience of the readers, I am also reproducing the same:-

Has Hemant Karkare’s martyrdom gone waste?

Horrendous terrorists, attack on Mumbai’s Hotel Taj & Trident, Nariman Point and Chhatrapati Shivaji Railway Terminal on 26/11 has left a deep scar on the psyche of the people. Innumerable questions are flying thick and fast from all four corners of the country and abroad as well. The role of the Pakistani army is despicable and stands exposed to the whole world. But what will you do for the enemies within the country and are holding high posts? While the whole nation is shocked to shell and wants to teach the befitting lesson to the perpetrators of the terrorism, there is a section in our country which wants to obfuscate the issue for the benefit of Pakistan, which is the hub centre of training for terrorists.

Now the doubts are being created as to how Maharashtra’s Anti Terrorists Squad Chief Hemant Karkare was killed along with three other brave officers. We have seen the whole host of theories coming from different quarters. If one keeps track of Pakistani media, one would be stunned to see that there is a lot of praise for the bravery of Hemant Karkare. Mind it, a section of rabidly communal media of Pakistan is unabashedly propounding a theory that 26/11 was a drama enacted and staged by Hindu Zionists in collaboration with the Indian Military. This amply demonstrates that by and large Pakistani society derives perverted pleasure in the sufferings of Indians in such types of barbarous and ghastly attacks.

Here I have a point, which I want others to consider and let me know with her or his opinion. Hemant Karkare was supposed to be a highly trained and intelligent officer. He was the chief of the ATS. He was the boss, not supposed to take orders from anybody but to give orders to other subordinate officers. A trained officer like him must be able to take quick decisions and he should have relatively better comprehension about planning, design and strategy of terrorists than of any other person. However, with all respect, I must say here that at the time of the crisis of this magnitude he could not come up to the expectations of his stature. Anybody, who had seen him in the television visuals coming in the vehicle to the place of occurrence will vouchsafe that his gait was sluggish and very uninspiring. He was looking very leisurely. After getting down from the vehicle he walked down a few paces in a un-agile manner. A constable came running to him with an old helmet and helped him wear it. He appeared to be very callous which was absolutely not befitting to the commander of the team, who was going to lead from the front. He was helped in putting on an ineffective bulletproof jacket. At that time he was not exuding any confidence. Investigation in peacetime is altogether ball game, which cannot, rpt. cannot be followed in at the time of action that too, when it was a war like situation. He had gone there without any planning, it appeared from the footage of the channels as if he was going for a walk at the marine drive.

Why did he go to the hospital? Why he took three other senior officers along in the vehicle is really baffling. It is difficult to find any convincing answer to it. But one can certainly come to a conclusion that he was not mentally geared up to take up such a challenging task. Otherwise, an officer of his stature would not have done his job in such an amateurish and sluggish manner, as he did. Now if the persons, like Antulay, who have been responsible for the rise of drug peddling and other nefarious activities in Mumbai during his ministership and Chief Ministership are demanding that the death of Hemant Karkare should be probed to find out the reality, one should read their intentions. They are not interested in knowing the truth but they just want to give a handle to the forces that are inimical to India.

To link the death of Karkare with that of Malegoan probe is not only far-fetched but it also shows how far the fertile mind of these people can travel to muddle the real issue. At a time when the whole world is convinced on the basis of foolproof evidence that the terrorism is flourishing in Pakistan with the active support of the ISI and most of the terrorist activities against India are aided and abetted even acted by the Pakistani army any attempt to create diversion tantamount to betrayal with the country. Therefore, the theory of linking the death of Karkare with that of the Malegaon probe should not be taken lightly; such elements should be watched and weeded out. As far as Antulay is concerned, he should have, if he has any sense of shame, resigned from the post of a Union cabinet minister or else, the Prime minister should have sacked him as he is providing anti-India fodder to Pakistan by virtue of the post he holds in the Government.

Has Hemant Karkare’s Martyrdom Gone Waste

Media: Failed to Inform Public of Transformational Changes in India

By: Parmanand Pandey, Advocate, Supreme Court (Secretary General IPC)

The amount of work that Narendra Modi has done in the last five years is mind-boggling and unimaginable for any government to do in country and population of this size. It will take years for the researchers to properly comprehend and evaluate it. Almost every household in the country has now got toilet facilities, which was unthinkable only a few years back. When he declared from the ramparts of Lal Quila that every house will soon have ‘izzatghar’, he was being pooh-poohed by the prophets of doom, but they all proved wrong.

       Go to any village in the country, there is hardly any family, which does not have a pucca house with modern facilities of kitchen, electricity and toilet. Every house has LPG and the subsidy goes directly to the consumer, which was earlier gobbled up and pocketed by the agents, middlemen / women and brokers. There is another great achievent of Ayushman by this government, which is the Central Government’s Health Scheme that offers health services at all India level through different forms of medical systems like Allopathic, Homeopathic, Ayurveda, Unani, Yoga and Siddha. Still, there are a few persons who are alergic to Modi and refuse to see any such great achievent. There is one briefless Advocate, I know, who sits in the Supreme Court, who during his government service days, was caught by the CBI red-handed taking bribes, although he got acquitted by using the same methodology of bribing. However one can still find him pouring venom against Prime Minister Modi. He has been the worst critic of Jan Dhan Yojna of Modi saying that what was the use of the bank accounts when there was no money in it. He used to say that all bank personnel are unnecessarily over-burdoned because it has increased their work many times over. But, see the result of that scheme, now even the poorest of the poor is getting his subsidies directly transferred to his/her accounts. This ‘gentleman’ often gets eggs on his face for his unfounded criticism of Modi’s work but that makes no difference for him because of the large league of corrupt persons that he still has around him.

     Think of those days when getting a license, quota or permit was considered to be an achievement because there was enough scope of manipulation. There used to lakhs of ghost cardholders and the number of subsidies was being swallowed by the nexus of corrupt politicians, government officials, brokers and license holders. But now that link of corruption has been wiped out, which has saved the country’s billions of Rupees, that now goes for developmental works like ujjawala yojana, road-building, house buildings and many other schemes, some of them have been enumerated above.

     There was a time, and that was only a few years ago, when every honest person was groaning with an unbearable effect of black money. If anybody had to purchase a house or a piece of land, he or she had to cough up 70 per cent payment in black and only 30 per cent in white causing enormous loss to the exchequer. But thanks to the demonetization the real estate market has largely become realistic to the huge relief of common man. This is the reason why all corrupt forces rose in unison against the demonetization. Despite all the flaws in the implementation of the demonetization due to the corrupt bank officials and others, it has helped the country to come out of the economic sickness. Now the benefits of GST are there for all to see. Earlier if one were to purchase anything from jewellers or any other shopkeepers, the consumer was told two prices, one without the receipt and the other with receipt. Every consumer or customer was discouraged to go for the receipt for the purchased items. But look, Modi is hauled over coals even for bringing transparency and honesty in the business.

      These schemes and projects are benefiting every section of the society without any discrimination. Muslims are the biggest beneficiaries of them but surprisingly almost all Muslims orchestrate in the opposition of Modi. The number of Muslims supporting is few and far between. And even if he advises something good for the Muslims, he is accused of polarization on communal lines. This shows the bankruptcy of the opposition and Muslim leadership. When you enumerate the good works of Modi, they will turn at you by saying that he had promised 15 lakhs to every Indian and two crores job every year. This is a patent lie and a baseless rumour. Nobody has been able to produce even single audio or video, where Modi has been seen saying or promising such things. Our Media does not have the time to present the factual position before the people because it has its own axes to grind.

       Be that as it may, Modi eminently deserves a second chance to become the Prime Minister to stem the rot that has been set in the administration. The country will achieve the dizzy heights in the comity of the nations. Some drastic measures for the population control and introduction of artificial intelligence can be taken only by Modi and none else. He is the only hope of the country, who is standing tall among all pigmies of politicians.

Forcible Conversion of Hundreds of  Hindu women to Islam in Pakistan Every Year

By: Parmanand Pandey, Advocate, Supreme Court (Secretary General IPC)

Famous Pakistani journalist Khaled Ahmed, who is a consulting editor of News Week Pakistan has recently written a very touching story about the abduction, forceful conversion of two Hindu girls, Reena (14) and Raveena (16) and their marriages with two semi-literate Muslim boys in Sindh. However, it has failed to evoke any significant response in secular India. The Foreign Minister Smt. Sushma Swaraj, albeit, asked the Indian High Commission in Pakistan to send its report but, that too has been opposed  in India by saying that it is an internal matter of Pakistan and the Government of India should not interfere in such matters.

 It is certainly a matter of some solace that Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan has also ordered an enquiry into forcible conversion but the outcome of the enquiry as everybody knows will be that they voluntarily converted to Islam. According to a report of Zohra Yusuf, the former Chairperson of the Human Right Commission of Pakistan (HRCP) ‘Hindus concentrated, mostly in Sindh, carry the burden of historical prejudice as well as association with India. And about 1000 Hindus are converted to Islam every year and the majority among them are young women. In most cases, the girls are abducted, forcibly converted to Islam and then married to Muslim men.

 Ms. Yusuf further says that there is hardly any doubt that the Hindu community in Pakistan, particularly in Sindh, is more indigenous than Muslims but it suffers from extreme exploitation. Most of them work as bonded agriculture labour. They are treated no better than slaves, violence against women is fairly common as they (landowners) treat labourers as their personal property.

According to another report most of the temples in Pakistan which have got historical importance are in a very dilapidated condition. The population of minorities has been decreasing every passing day, therefore, there is no question of the construction of any new temple in Pakistan.

India and Pakistan were divided on communal lines; however, India chose to remain a secular country. Here the population of minorities, be it Muslim or Christian, has increased manifold. What to say of the destruction of any Masjid, thousands of new Masjids were built only during the regime of Mulayam Singh Yadav in Uttar Pradesh alone. According to a rough estimate of more than a lakh new mosque have been built in India after 1947. But still ‘secularists’ talk about the appeasement of minorities. Only a few days back the BSP leader Ms Mayawati appealed in a rally that Muslims must vote against BJP and in favour of Mahagathbandan. In a way, she has exhorted them not to use their mind and follow the herd mentality of sheep. Only a few months back the present Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh Kamalnath had asked Muslims not to fritter away their votes and go en bloc for the Congress if they want their progress. Their fear psychosis is created by our secular politicians to keep the Hindu Muslim divide wide to remain in power.

But how long people will allow themselves to be fooled? The need is to bring every section of the society, in the mainstream, which, of course, Modi is doing by his uniform model of development.
