Reader comment on item: Is Turkey's Government Starting a Muslim Reformation?
in response to reader comment: Shaban Azmi's statement: How you treat the security of the minority

Submitted by Proud Indian (India), Aug 25, 2008 at 03:14

Dear Attriji,

I would like to comment on the post which you have posted. It is common amongst muslims to put forth their minority status whenever they do something wrong and are caught for it! It is people like Shabana Azmi who shamelessly parade the "minority" card whenever her community comes under any investigative agency's perview or forment trouble.

Case i) Mohammad Azharruddin served as India's cricket captian for 10 years.. we all loved his game and i am sure the cricketers wouldn't have hesitated to play under this muslim! but the day he was caught for hobnobbing with bookies and accepting cash to throw away matches, he was banned!!! what did he do? come up with the statement that he was victimised because he was muslim!

...he conviniently forgot that even hindus like AJAY JADEJA, NAYAN MONGIA, MANOJ PRABHAKAR, were banned.. and does he think that BCCI was ignorant that he was not a muslim before they made him the captain of INDIA? who was he fooling?

Case 2) Salman Khan was jailed for hunting an endangered species of deer.. guess was did he do?? started reading the koran and wore a skull cap whenever he was taken to court.. He instantly was made a poster boy of the "wronged muslim"

...if the majority of the indian population i.e hindus, flock to theatres to see his movies.. they pay hard earned money to see their superstar on the big screen. I am sure he doesn't mind.., but when he is incarcerated for a crime, he immediately becomes a muslim who has been framed by the majority!

Shabana Azmi claims that she was denied a place in mumbai because she was muslim? has she gone nuts? no society wants film celebrities to stay in their localities.. we had one in our locality and we were fed up with the late night parties and starry brawls which use to take place. .. not to mention incessant fans and c grade news channels looking for a sound byte make life a hell... So if a locality bans film personalities then even hindus actors and actresses find it difficult to find a place.

No one minds an Azim Premji,our ex president APJ Abdul Kalam Azad staying but actors? no way.. to top it off loud mouths like shabana azmi? NOT WORTH..

Thats why i say.. radicals are dangerous but people like shabana azmi are the wolves in the sheep's clothing

regards,

Proud Indian
