in response to reader comment: Between Fanatic Secularism and Religious Fanaticism-the case of Tasleema Nasreen

While reading your comments, i felt delight that there is somebody, and i am sure there are many yet not given opportunity to express such feelings by our english media, who knows what is happening correctly. But, please forgive me for this, your last few lines made me believe that even you are somewhere taken in by propaganda. People that you have mentioned viz. javed and Shaban and all those. Let me assure you these are intelectual jehadis.

Just to give you an example, now ths this may look petty, but propaganda is very subtle especially when muslim communalism is called secular or "fanatic secularism" (which is highly mild term term to describe the matter). A photo of Mr. akhter was published in a popular English daily showing him carrying a poster in a protest march on a anniversary of Babri masjid demolition, disaplaying a poem written by his father-in-law, another communalist kaifi Azmi and celebrated "secularist". That poem contained slur language against Hindu god Lord Ram.
