Reader comment on item: Strange Logic in the Lebanon War
in response to reader comment: What about Nazification of Hindutva?

Submitted by Rakshas 10 Anan (India), Aug 28, 2006 at 01:20

GM quoting 'scriptures' on democracy and economy ruling the roost, or safeguarding the interests of minorities (in Sharia Law???) sounds very strange. Perfect copy for a poster on Islam in Mecca!

Poll after poll worldwide, points to the bankruptcy of the political economy of Islam, majority adherents of which are not just immigrants, but also illegal immigrants who have absolutely nothing of worth to offer to the host countries, to the contrary.

Sharia law is by definition anti-democratic, grossly exploitative of both women and men, barbaric and inhuman in both its civil and criminal code, and entirely antagonistic to the civilised code of morality and ethics that is cherished in non-Islamic countries. It is a rotten, corrupting force, damaging to the health of civil society. It serves to seriously undermine the unique historical process of progess and evolution in each host country. By appealing to the basest instincts of human beings, Islam draws into its fold the rejected dregs of humanity, who wish to terrorise the earth through murder of the innocent, loot, rape and pillage, in the hoary tradition of its earliest savants. The current scourge of Islamic terrorism is the epitome of the Koran, and that says a lot of about Sharia law also, which does not offer more freedom, equality or democracy, but total slavery for the Muslims, where only Perverted Male Might Can Rule!

The Nazification of Hindutva sounds like the kind of insane lie that is occasionally nurtured in the hives of area studies in the West, which is purely delusive ignorance. Even right wing Hindus have been historically given to comparative studies in the spirit of open inquiry, especially while fighting the slick subversion of ancient to modern Hindu scholarship by the British Colonial rulers in the earlier days. So they read Hitler just as they read Garibaldi, Disraeli or Jefferson, but their response was uniquely indigenous, soundly moored in the Vedic stream of India!

The modern response of Hindutva to age old jihad in its midst, viciously continuing after Pakistan's avowed policy of "bleeding India through a thousand cuts," largely based on inciting, radicalising, supporting and harbouring criminal and anti-national Indian Muslim youth, can hardly be considered Nazi! Their very ethos is democratic, based on free choice, and whenever they are seen to transgress these boundaries, they are soundly rejected by their own constituencies! On the other hand, there is even videographic proof of the historical alliance between leaders of Islam and the Nazi rulers of Germany (littlegreenfootballs.com)!

The difference lies in the fact that the more violent and inhuman the call of the Mullahs, more effective is its influence on the followers of Islam, and this is recent history so it cannot be denied; on the other hand, similar effort by any leader of a religious group other than Islamic, is decried and defeated by its own followers more often than not, in any part of the world!

All religious practices have been reformed and modified by the openness of their adherents to modern values of freedom and equality over the last hundred years especially, while Islam has in fact regressed to its crudest and most inhuman, anti-civilisational form, at odds with all free humanity! Tell us GM, how economy rules destiny in Islam, unless you are referring to the system of Hajj, zakat and the jiziya imposed on the dhimmis in dar-ul-Islam by sharia law?

Hindutva, for your information, is not demanding a return to Manu's Law, or any outdated system of jurisprudence, but in fact insisting that there be a Uniform Civil Code based on complete equality free of religious considerations for all Indians, and outdated British Law be reformed to that extent! This is opposed tooth and nail by the fundamentalist mullahs and their mindless followers, who would no doubt think of it in terms of the 'Nazi Code being imposed on them by the votaries of Hindutva!!!' Thus, while Hindu personal law has been considerably modernised in the last 60 years since Indian independence, in deference to the wishes of its majority, and particularly to safeguard the interests of its women, it is minority groups -- women especially -- including Christian, who are forced by the absence of a Uniform Civil Code, to be compelled to follow outdated Christian law in cases of inheritance and divorce.

Nazification of Hindutva? Quite hilarious, GM. Come again!
