Islamist Terrorism in India

Hmmm… Thought provoking….

On 31 May this year, Mullahs in India issued a fatwa denouncing terrorism as against Islam and calling it an unpardonable sin. The meeting of tens of thousands of clerics and students from around India defined terrorism as any action targeting innocent people both Muslim and non-Muslim, whether committed by an individual, and institution or a government.

It might seem strange for a fatwa against terrorism to come out of India but between 2004 and 2007 an estimated 3,674 people died as a result of terrorist attacks in that country. This is second only to that in Iraq for the same period.

    interesting but its all a question of perspective. how confident are we in saying that it is only second to iraq? certainly nto based on a news report from australia! how much global coverage does the death of say 5 indian soldiers get compared to 5 us soldiers even if both died fighting terrorists. fighting terrorism gains so much media coverage in the us [to be translated as global coverage for all practical reasons]. thsi woudl get so much attention in india too if not for all the other miscelleanous caste/religion/state based clashes among our politicians and other evil influences that all share fight for their share of media attention and if every state spoke the same language ..IMHO

    Dude, not you too as well. I take offense to the phrase “Islamic Terrorism”. It doesn’t go together, its like saying a a true lie, a good evil etc. I know you do not mean it but then that phrase is something that always gets to me. I cannot change the whole global media, but I know you mate, and request you to change that phrase.

    The new argument by certain new founded intellectuals,Pseudo Secularists and certain politically (chronic) biased media like CNN-IBN and NDTV etc.in India arguing that poverty and opression of minortiy community is the root cause of the Islamic Terrorism.

    Being a fellow citizen of this country,I absoultely rubbish those arguments.It is again just an escapism to put the blame always on Hindu Majority.

    India remains one of the poorest countries in the world today.750 Million people are in utter poverty in this country. Does it mean that all of them are terrorists or they think adapting to terrorism can take away their poverty??

    Look at Pakistan, A purely Islamic nation, today that country is flooded with terrorists and extremists.Bombs are exploded there and human lives are being lost everyday. Is it because of poverty? Is it because of so called “oppression of minority there”? People should think about it.The root cause of this terrorism is Dirty politics being played in respective countries for personal gains by certain section of politicians and religious fundamentalists. Nothing else.

    Pakistan initiated the terrorism for political bargaining and they will end with it because it is now out of any one’s control. “Those who live with Sword would die with it”

    Contradictory, being an Islamic nation Malaysia is a good exemption why because the prosperity in that country and there development and national integrity comes first Not crooked politics.

    Just by comparing Malaysia and Pakistan one could easily differentiate why terrorism sustains and why not. Even being autocratic, in certain GCC (not the whole Middle East) countries, do bomb explodes there??? Is there human lives are lost so freely and intermittently???

    As long as you appease and appease a certain community for political gain this phenomenon will continue. No doubt. India is the best example.

    Implement the UNIFORM CIVIL CODE and treat all citizens equally irrespective of their religion,cast,creed etc.thereby appeasement,
    vote bank politics ,accusations of oppression,suppression etc. will stop, till then it will bleed.

    That day I can say India will be a Superpower.

    Pseudo Secular Congress politicians, comic politicians like Lalu,Paswan,Mulayam etc.(there is no shortage in this country)and Shabnam Hashmi,John Dayal like crooked social activists should stop abusing people of Hindu religion or the so called “Majority”.
