Islamic aggression in India

Reader comment on item: The Temple Mount's Indian counterpart

Submitted by Arvind (United States), Aug 11, 2005 at 14:51

This problem is nothing unique. There are over 3000 mosques built on the site of temples. This is the nature of Islam. The Ayodhya temple is an important one and is thus prominent in the political arena. All across North India, you will find that temples have been smashed. There is not even ONE temple older than 150 years that has not been smashed up. Reason? Islam ruled North India for several centuries. Down South, where Islamic rule was lesser than in the North, you will find splendid temples from the ancient times.

For a person who is not at all religious, I have moved away from my earlier belief that the best way of solving it is to go to court with archaeological evidence. Now I know that the best way to solve it was for a mob to tear down that place. India is a Dhimmi state and all arms of the government exist to help the cause of Islam. The Supreme Court REFUSED to take up the case and give a judgement! The reason for the Dhimmitude is that Muslims hold Hindus to ransom. They got an entire country (Pakistan) from the Hindus, now they want pieces of India too.

V.S.Naipaul has correctly termed the tearing down of the mosque as a "creative" response to the Islamic aggression.

BJP should not be credited with tearing down that mosque. BJP betrayed us by talking a lot before they came to power, and promptly pandered to the Muslims once they came to power. For example, Muslims get to control their religious establishments and even get subsidies for Madrasas and Haj pilgrimage while revenues from wealthy Hindu temples is appropriated by the government. In short, Hindus in India pay the Jizya. Once BJP came to power, they increased the subsidies for Muslims! On that fateful day when the structure built to insult Hindus and proclaim the victory of Islam over Hinduism was torn down, senior BJP leaders were at Ayodhya pleading not to tear down the mosque. The heroes who tore down the disused and dilapidated structure were not BJP members.

The Muslim position on this dispute shows their true colors. They would rather have the place locked up or converted to a hospital or a school! In other words, they behave like a dog in the manger. How sadistic can this be? We don't want the place, but we don't want Hindus to get the place. And why do they insist on Hindus not getting back one of the most important places of worship?

The sad part is that the Westerm media led by NYT (specifically Celia Dugger, Barry Bearak, Barbara Crossette and Amy Waldman who have been the journalists posted to India over the years) have all hated Hindus from their gut and have supported the Marxists and Islamists. So you see that Muslims are the victims. They're always the victims and the whole world is at fault!
