Muslim appeasement is a global phenomenon

Reader comment on item: Britain's Encounter with Islamic Law

Submitted by Amitabh Tripathi (India), Feb 15, 2008 at 12:04

The issue which Dr Daniel pipes has raised in his latest column is in continuation of his warnings with which he is knocking the door of west from last two decades. In his several articles he has portrayed the true picture of western nations which are slowly but stedily falling in the lap of Islam.

This phenomenon of submission to Islam with policy of Muslim appeasement is very much in use in almost every nation of this earth. India is a densely Muslim populated nation which have 15 percent of its population as Muslim, but their affection for sharia and tendency to produce more and children with practice of polygamy has become a real threat for this Hindu majority nation which already has suffered a lot under subjugation of Muslim rulers for centuries.

When India became free in 1947 from the cluthes of Briltish rulers its so called new founders of nation adopted the model of secularism and practiced pseudo secularism synonyms to Muslim appeasement. For decades this policy took the shape of official government policy and Muslim fundamentalism grew and become stronger and stronger day by day. Practice of pseudo secularism in India has paralysed the system to such an extent that our prime minister feels proud in announcing in national development council that Muslims in India has first right on resources.This story does not end here Home minister of India declares before delegates of minority commissions that mechanism should be developed to insure reservation for Muslim in government jobs and education.

Few apologists in Indian system will plead for Muslims that they should be treated as under privilege class because of their social status but with whatever situation Muslims are confronted today not because of their lack of development but because of their teachings and practices. This article and issue has some relevance in Indian context also because Indian political system has become so apologetic for Islam and Muslims and gradually inching towards accomodation of Sharia. In India we also have some under privilege class as scedule casts and tribes those have been given special status in constitution but they don't pose any threat to nation because their loyalty has no alien roots. They also have different customs and traditions but their customs are not in confrontation with national ethos.

As long as policy of Muslim appeasement will be practiced in form of secularism threat of Islamic dominance on this world loom large. All forces who have suffered a lot with this menace in past or those suffering today should come together and get united to take a lead role in defining some concepts of modern world order in which we live. Secularism and liberalism is one of them. In Indian context it is difficult to differenciate between secularist and leftists. Because both of them has one common enemy that is Hindu organisations and both of them plead for Islamists.
