Muslims and their apologists masquedering as ‘Secularists’ have been splitting hair over the issue of Vande Mataram. I have watched many of these people advance some of the most silliest and idiotic arguments against singing.
All right I ask THEM Don’t Sing Vande Mataram. Fine?
Then what NEXT?
What if you refuse to pay respect to the National Flag? NOT AT ALL have you said! Convince us that no “secularist” will find or invent fault, even if none exists. As they have found this time when the “secular” Nehru and Maullana Azad and of-course, the forgotten Hero Neta Ji Subash Chandra Bose settled the issue and the GEET was adopted.
Please do not sing Vande Mataram, by all means, if it hurts your religious feelings. After all it is the religion first for you than the Nation. But, pause and ponder, are you not suggesting that Islam is such a fragile faith? That it is always in danger by such an innocent and patriotic song and such other things. If this is untrue then what else all this ranting and ravings suggests?
On Sunday I happened to hear what our Honorable minister of state for home affairs Shri. Jai Prakash Jaiswal said about the whole issue, it appeared to me that more than Muslims it is the Congress who is against the Muslims to sing Vande Mataram. Nevertheless, if you still insist that you will not sing. Don’t sing.
What next then?
Jan Gana Man…? After all it too is in the honor of some one else than (*) ALLAH. Why is singing the GAAN not anti Islamic?
Constitution? Is it not against Shariya? After all you are supposed to be governed by the SHARIYA (Holy laws laid by the Prophet). Therefore believing in MAN WRITTEN/DRAWN laws, are not anti religion of yours????
The national emblem is taken from Sarnath Pillar of a HINDU Raja, the Ashoka The Great. So will you refuse to recognize it? And of course our national emblem is inscribed with the word “SATYAMEY JAYETA” in Devnagari script. Is this not, too against your religion and faith?
Is the PEACOCK not closely associated with the Lord Krishna? Do you accept this beautiful bird as being “secular”? Is it not anti your religion that is “secular” and peace loving?
Is the TIGER not recognized with MAA DURGA? Again, Tiger is anti Islam?
Last but not least…
Is it not your religious duty to annihilate all the NON-BELIEVERS (Kafirs)????????????
This all may look trivializing the issue and downrightly STUPID. And so it is.
But, the way and the arguments which are being advanced against the singing of Vande Mataram by our “secular” brigade, the day is not far off when all the above will be opposed on one or another ground. Equally sure I am that the “secular” brigade is so “intelligent” and its “eminent” scholars shall come out with startling facts and theories proving that who believe in all the above are “communal” and the “minority” community should be exempted from all this as “their religious feelings get hurt”.
Dear friends when as a kid my grand parents used to tell me the stories of Pre-Partition cunnings by Muslim League and compromises after compromises made by our great leaders then, I considered them “prejudiced”.
Today I feel sad that I didn’t believe them then. As we all see today, they were right?
(*) This is a very litigious issue therefore, cannot comment or discuss.
