Islamic nationalism- a utopia

Right after the death of prophet Mohammed in 632 AD, the Arab muslims made their way into what we know as modern Iraq. Islam spread by persecution and not embraced by any of the tribes with love or by spiritual attraction. Many Persians fled their country to save their lives and religion and rich heritage. The Caliph of Baghdad sent army to Sind and North West India literally to spread Islam by sword. Such was the mode of spread of Dar-ul-Islam that mankind had never seen. At that time Islam was used as an unifying bondage among some unruly savage people. No religion in the history of mankind had spread in this way and I doubt Islam fell into wrong hands after the Prophet's death. The price is being paid by the innocent and religious muslims now.

Right after the fall of the Ottoman empire in the first decade of the twentieth century, Islamic nationalism took a backseat and Islamic fundamentalists started a new way of saving their existence by resorting to violence. Hundreds of riots and killings were perpetrated by muslim politico-religious groups in undivided India during the next one hundred years. Patch-up work named "Khilafat movement " by a political shrew in the twenties could appease the Muslims in India for the time being but that was not the solution. No deterrent had ever been used against the vindictive and aggressive muslims in India or elsewhere. Pakistan was created for muslims of India but most of them were denied the fruit of riot though Pakistan did have land in the proportion of muslims in undivided India. So one can call creation of Pakistan the biggest cheating of human history- the leaders of Pakistan denied access to nearly twelve crores of their followers who were used as ladders for the unholy leaders. Nearly two million Hindus were butchered in Punjab and Bengal and when Hindus retaliated Nehru and Gandhi poked their ugly noses. Not a single rioteer muslim was brought to book and I wonder how the world reacts at the riot at Gujarat in 2002.

Israel was created in 1948 on that part of soil where they used to live from the time of father Abraham (Old Testament). This is only a small part of their original homeland. Now Palestine has become a major issue to the Islamic jihadis but these "zaheel" blockheads don't think that muslims are intruders in the holy land of Abraham who is revered by the muslims too. Kashmir is the bone of contention between the two enemy countries for the past six decades. Looking back into history-- Kashmir contributes the letter K in the artificially created name of country of Pakistan (Muslim League conference at Lahore,1937). So leaders of Pakistan captured about 45% of the kingdom of Kashmir within three months of creation of Pakistan. A baby snake has the same poison as an adult one. Now Osama bin Laden has joined the ultras of Pakistan and he is now like a rabid dog who bites everyone on its way. Osama and the so called jehadis will and must be remembered as destroyer of a religion called Islam if these beasts are not killed without delay. Fortunately these self-styled jehadis don't find much support in India and jehad is smuggled in India from across the border.

There is no existence of Islamic nationalism in the world-- no muslim statesman loves the religion more than "zarr, zameen and zenana" and my conviction is that if this "zonoon" is not removed from the heads of these ultras or the hardcores are beheaded, Islam is not safe.
