Piggybacking on Terror

Reader comment on item: Piggybacking on Terror
in response to reader comment: Islam should change -- not UK laws

The above situation has been prevailing in India, since 1947. Muslims wanted their own state and got Pakistan. Many still remained in India and with an unmatched cunningness, the community has distorted the democratic process and I will outline how:

> Muslims never adopted family planning, a national policy and from 5% in 1947 they are today 17% of the population. They tend to concentrate in a few areas and constitute vital vote banks. The political parties can not antagonise them, since they tend to vote en bloc, not on any political beliefs but strictly on religious grounds. They are experts at this sort of political blackmail.

> They send their children to madrassass for religious education; modern education is denied and they can not afford, for the cited reasons. Majority of the community will remain poor and are susceptible to extremist persuasions. Having caused the problem, they will cite the resultant poverty as the cause for more concessions.

> They will not educate the women; the importance of education will be lost on the future generations. The muslim women community will be unproductive and a permanent disability on the society.

> They have scant regard for secular laws and will insist on Sharia. An elderly lady Shah Bano was divorced by her husband of forty years and with five children by uttering triple talaaq and she sued for maintenance. The Supreme Court ruled in her favour and awarded a small sum of Rs.250/ p.m ( $5 ) as alimony. The community raised a furore and threatened the ruling party with withdrawal of vote banks, a law was passed to annul the import of the judgement. Similarly the same ruling party was blackmailed to pass an ordinance to give citizenship to illegal muslim immigrants.

> They will never integrate into plural society; insist on their identity as muslims first and last; at best reluctant Indians.

I suggest to Dr.Pipes to study the Indian politics for the last sixty years and educate the Christian west what is in store for them. Hindu majority solved the problem by floating our own political party, called Bharatiya Janatha Party, whose main objective is to ensure India does not become a dhimmy state.
