Hindu Terrorism Coming for You?

Hindu Terrorism Coming for You?

By SOP newswire2

Addressing the State Police chiefs on Wednesday, the 25th August, the Home Minister, Mr. P. Chidambaram once again raised the bogy of Bhagwa (Hindu) terrorism. The fact is that neither the Centre nor the State governments have been able to control either the fast spreading Islamic terrorism or the menace of Maoists & Naxalites` repeated attacks on Police parties and Police posts. The public patience is running out. The Hindu activists are specially worked up on government`s failure on these fronts. In order to distract public attention and terrorise Hindu activists, government of India invented, two years ago, the term "Hindu terrorism " and arrested some of the Hindu agitationists, perhaps, planning retaliatory action against Islamic terrorism. They have been rotting in jails, for two years, without trial. 
 
Hindu intellectuals and activists are very much agitated over the use of the term of "Bhagwa (Hindu) terrorism` and are making angry gestures without making any impact on the government. What has, however, not been done and needs to be done is to tell the Home Minister that reading only the Constitution and law books is not sufficient and that he should read Hindu as well as Islamic scriptures or ask his lieutenants to read them and brief him about the core of the two sets of scriptures. It would be found that whereas the Islamic scriptures contain a lot to inflict atrocities on non-Muslims, but none in Hindu scriptures. Here is only one sample, namely, Sura IX, verse 5 of the Quran, Then, when the sacred months have passed, slay the idolators wherever ye find them, and take them captive and besiege them ". " The Islamic terrorists of all hues, throughout the globe, vehemently claim that they are only carrying out the injunctions of their holy book, especially the "Quran`, which is the word of Allah (God).  Hence, while there is sufficient justificatioin for the term "Islamic terrorism`, "Bhagwa terrorism`, is nothing but a great scandal, only to denigrate Hinduism and humiliate Hindus before the entire humanity.
 
What Mr. Chidambaram has referred to as Safron terrorism " or Hindu terrorism may be stray cases of Hindu retaliation against the continuing and expanding acts of Islamic terrorism from J&K to Kerala. He and others concerned should know that retaliation is an inherent right of every nation recognized by international law. Civilized modern nation States have not passed this right to individuals because they have themselves taken over the responsibility of saving and protecting the honour, life and property and righting the wrong done to him/her. But what the individual or the society is to do, if not retaliate, when the State is unable to discharge its duty for years and decades? And stray cases of minor acts of retaliation must not be stretched too far to equate them vastly deadly acts of serial bomb blasts and fidayeen attacks on huge civilian crowds. Mr. Chidambaram has acted in a highly malicious manner that not only goes against a peace loving lot of Hindus, but even against the interests of the Indian State itself.
