DECLARED EMERGENCY OF INDIRA GANDHI vs DR.SUBRAMANIAN SWAMY IN 1975
AND UNDECLARED EMERGENCY OF SONIA GANDHI AGAINST DR.SUBRAMANIAN SWAMY IN 2011-PART-I
ALL-INDIA GENERAL SECRETARY (IDEOLOGY), JANATA PARTY
A Tireless and Indefatigable Fighter for Hindu Human Rights
I have got as much right to do politics and participate with fearless gusto and enthusiasm in the democratic political process in India as the supremely corrupt and half literate Firangi Memsahib Sonia Gandhi and her chamchas in the Minorities Commission of India. I assert my fundamental right to freedom of speech under the Indian Constitution and more importantly Freedom After Speech. I have no less right than the openly PARTISAN mass media in India-----both print and electronic—who function as whole-time paid agents and marketing managers of Sonia Congress Party to participate in acrimonious and controversial political debates and discussion. In short I have as much right as BARKHA DUTTS, VIR SANGHVIS, DILIP SARDESAIS, ARNAB GOSWAMIS, RAHUL KANWALS and other media worthies to express my views without fear or favour on various political issues too!
I strongly condemn those politicians, civil society members, journalists and other pseudo-secular, fundamentally anti-national citizens for launching a baseless tirade against Dr.Subramanian Swamy, President of the Janata Party and Former Union Minister for Law and Commerce for his most seminal and brilliant article titled ‘How To Wipe Out Islamic Terror’ which was published in DNA (Daily News Analysis)issue dated 14th July 2011. I view the recent moves and overtures of the Minorities Commission of India and the State Minorities Commission of Maharashtra to politically silence Dr.Subramanian Swamy as totally illegal and unconstitutional, a Sonia-sponsored assault on the fundamental right to freedom of speech and thought .
Dr.Subramanian Swamy has already succeeded magnificently at the level of the Supreme Court to prosecute the Former Union Telecom Minister A.Raja for his unprecedented and uncontrolled loot under the Himalayan 2G scam. It is also public knowledge that Dr.Subramanian Swamy has already sought the permission of the Prime Minister to prosecute both Firangi Memsahib Sonia Gandhi and Union Home Minister P.Chidambaram under the Prevention of Corruption Act for their leading and stellar role in the loot of 2G Scam. According to Dr.Swamy, Firangi Memsahib Sonia Gandhi and her family have been paid a kick-back of Rs.60,000 crores under the 2G spectrum scam and Union Home Minister P.Chidambaram has been paid a kick-back of Rs.5000 crores under the same 2G spectrum scam. These two have joined together to persecute and prosecute Dr.Subramanian Swamy using the instrumentalities of the Minorities Commission and the weak arm of the lapsing and collapsing Indian State.
While Sonia Gandhi can terrorise our Do Nothing, See Nothing and Say Nothing Impotent Prime Minister into denying the permission sought by Dr.Subramanian Swamy to prosecute her and Union Home Minster P. Chidambaram, yet both these political bandits know full well that they can never prevent him from taking the matter for final justice and adjudication to the Supreme Court of India. That is why they have combined against Dr.Subramanian Swamy. They also know that they can not deploy the Congress Bureau of Investigation (CBI), Congress Bureau of Insinuation (CBI), Congress Bureau of Incarceration (CBI) and Congress Bureau of Intimidation (CBI) to ruthlessly put down and silence Dr.Subramanian Swamy.
This desperate duo have publicly come out with a two-pronged political attack on Dr.Subramanian Swamy.
1) Make maximum pseudo-secular political capital out of a very timely, relevant and brilliant article written by Dr.Subramanian Swamy in the DNA newspaper on 14th July, 2011 on how to effectively combat Islamic Terrorism. Some Congress oriented journalists have been purchased to write articles attacking Dr.Subramanian Swamy for having hurt the feelings and sensibilities of Minorities. Simultaneously the National Minorities Commission has been informally directed by Sonia Gandhi to somehow prosecute Dr.Subramanian Swamy under Section 153 of the IPC. The whole of India knows that that Section 153 of the IPC has never been used against the Imam of Jamma Masjid for his inflammatory statements from time to time against the majority Hindu community in India. No action has been taken against Arundhati Roy for extending open political support to the Kashmiri Separatists and terrorists at a public meeting in New Delhi and several such meetings elsewhere in different parts of India. Sonia Gandhi and P.Chidambaram believe in the RULE OF MEN NOT THE RULE OF LAW.
2) Dr.Subramanian Swamy is an outstanding Economist, having taken his Phd Degree from Harvard University 45 years ago under the supervision of Noble Laureates like Paul Samuelson and Simon Kuznets. He has been a very popular Visiting Professor in Harvard University for several years. In order to defame him and to terminate his employment as Visiting Professor there, Sonia Congress party has set up some leftist and Fundamentalist Islamic Groups in USA to write to the Harvard University authorities to terminate his employment as Visiting Professor on the ground that he is a fundamentalist Hindu. Sonia Gandhi and her Congress Party should know that the Harvard University in USA ca not be twisted and manipulated to serve their base if not wholly criminal political needs in the same way as Darul Uloom in Deoband or Jamia Milia University in New Delhi. The game being played by Sonia Gandhi in USA will be dealt with by ne in a more detailed manner in Part II of this article.
I am giving below the full text of Dr.Subramanian Swamy’s article.
How to Wipe Out Islamic Terror
The problem can be solved in five years if the country learns its lessons with a ‘virat’ Hindu mindset to take bold, hard decisions.--Subramanian Swamy
The terrorist blast in Mumbai on July 13, 2011, requires decisive soul-searching by the Hindus of India. Hindus cannot accept to be killed in this halal fashion, continuously bleeding every day till the nation finally collapses. Terrorism I define here as the illegal use of force to overawe the civilian population to make it do or not do an act against its will and well-being.
Islamic terrorism is India’s number one problem of national security. About this there will be no doubt after 2012. By that year, I expect a Taliban takeover in Pakistan and the Americans to flee Afghanistan. Then, Islam will confront Hinduism to “complete unfinished business”. Already the successor to Osama bin laden as al-Qaeda leader has declared that India is the priority target for that terrorist organisation and not the USA.
Fanatic Muslims consider Hindu-dominated India “an unfinished chapter of Islamic conquests”. All other countries conquered by Islam 100% converted to Islam within two decades of the Islamic invasion. Undivided India in 1947 was 75% Hindu even after 800 years of brutal Islamic rule. That is jarring for the fanatics.
In one sense, I do not blame the Muslim fanatics for targeting Hindus. I blame Hindus who have taken their individuality permitted in Sanatana dharma to the extreme. Millions of Hindus can assemble without state patronage for the Kumbh Mela, completely self-organised, but they all leave for home oblivious of the targeting of Hindus in Kashmir, Mau, Melvisharam and Malappuram and do not lift their little finger to help organise Hindus. If half the Hindus voted together, rising above caste and language, a genuine Hindu party would have a two-thirds majority in parliament and the assemblies.
The first lesson to be learnt from the recent history of Islamic terrorism against India and for tackling terrorism in India is that the Hindu is the target and that Muslims of India are being programmed by a slow reactive process to become radical and thus slide into suicide against Hindus. It is to undermine the Hindu psyche and create the fear of civil war that terror attacks are organised.
Hindus must collectively respond as Hindus against the terrorist and not feel individually isolated or, worse, be complacent because he or she is not personally affected. If one Hindu dies merely because he or she was a Hindu, then a bit of every Hindu also dies. This is an essential mental attitude, a necessary part of a virat (committed) Hindu.
We need a collective mindset as Hindus to stand against the Islamic terrorist. The Muslims of India can join us if they genuinely feel for the Hindu. That they do I will not believe unless they acknowledge with pride that though they may be Muslims, their ancestors were Hindus. If any Muslim acknowledges his or her Hindu legacy, then we Hindus can accept him or her as a part of the Brihad Hindu Samaj (greater Hindu society) which is Hindustan. India that is Bharat that is Hindustan is a nation of Hindus and others whose ancestors were Hindus. Others, who refuse to acknowledge this, or those foreigners who become Indian citizens by registration, can remain in India but should not have voting rights (which means they cannot be elected representatives).
Any policy to combat terrorism must begin with requiring each and every Hindu becoming a Virat Hindu. For this, one must have a Hindu mindset that recognises that there is Vyaktigat Charitra (personal character) and Rashtriya Charitra (national character). For example, Manmohan Singh has high personal character, but by being a rubber stamp of a semi-literate Sonia Gandhi and waffling on all national issues, he has proved that he has no Rashtriya Charitra.
The second lesson for combating terrorism is that we must never capitulate or concede any demand, as we did in 1989 (freeing five terrorists in exchange for Mufti Mohammed Sayeed’s daughter Rubaiya) and in 1999, freeing three terrorists after the hijack of Indian airlines flight ic-814.
The third lesson is that whatever and however small the terrorist incident, the nation must retaliate massively. For example, when the Ayodhya temple was sought to be attacked, we should have retaliated by re-building the Ram Temple at the Site.
According to bleeding heart liberals, terrorists are born or bred because of illiteracy, poverty, oppression, and discrimination. They argue that instead of eliminating them, the root cause of these four disabilities in society should be removed. This is rubbish. Osama bin laden was a billionaire. In the failed Times Square episode, failed terrorist Shahzad was from a highly placed family in Pakistan and had an MBA from a reputed us university.
It is also a ridiculous idea that terrorists cannot be deterred because they are irrational and willing to die. Terrorist masterminds have political goals and a method in their madness. An effective strategy to deter terrorism is to defeat those political goals and to rubbish them by counter-terrorist action. Thus, I advocate the following strategy to negate the political goals of Islamic terrorism in India.
GOAL 1: OVERAWE INDIA ON KASHMIR.
Strategy: Remove article 370 and resettle ex-servicemen in the valley. Create Panun Kashmir for the Hindu Pandit community. Look for or create an opportunity to take over POK. If Pakistan continues to back terrorists, assist the Baluchis and Sindhis to get their independence.
GOAL 2: BLAST TEMPLES, KILL HINDU DEVOTEES.
Strategy: Remove the Masjid In Kashi Vishwanath Temple and the 300 Masjids at other temple sites.
GOAL 3: TURN INDIA INTO DARUL ISLAM.
Strategy: Implement the uniform civil code, make learning of sanskrit and singing of Vande Mataram mandatory, and declare India a Hindu Rashtra in which non-Hindus can vote only if they proudly acknowledge that their ancestors were Hindus. Rename India Hindustan as a nation of Hindus and those whose ancestors were Hindus.
GOAL 4: CHANGE INDIA’S DEMOGRAPHY BY ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION, CONVERSION, AND REFUSAL TO ADOPT FAMILY PLANNING.
Strategy: Enact a national law prohibiting conversion from Hinduism to any other religion. Re-conversion will not be banned. Declare that caste is not based on birth but on code or discipline. Welcome non-Hindus to re-convert to the caste of their choice provided they adhere to the code of discipline. Annex land from Bangladesh in proportion to the illegal migrants from that country staying in India. At present, the northern third from Sylhet to Khulna can be annexed to re-settle illegal migrants.
GOAL 5: DENIGRATE HINDUISM THROUGH VULGAR WRITINGS AND PREACHING IN MOSQUES, MADRASSAS, AND CHURCHES TO CREATE LOSS OF SELF-RESPECT AMONGST HINDUS AND MAKE THEM FIT FOR CAPITULATION.
Strategy: propagate the development of a Hindu mindset.
India can solve its terrorist problem within five years by such a deterrent strategy, but for that we have to learn the four lessons outlined above, and have a Hindu mindset to take bold, risky, and hard decisions to defend the nation. If the Jews could be transformed from lambs walking meekly to the gas chambers to fiery lions in just 10 years, it should not be difficult for Hindus in much better circumstances (after all we are 83% of India), to do so in five years.
Guru Gobind Singh showed us how just five fearless persons under spiritual guidance can transform a society. Even if half the Hindu voters are persuaded to collectively vote as Hindus, and for a party sincerely committed to a Hindu agenda, then we can forge an instrument for change. And that is the bottom line in the strategy to deter terrorism in a democratic Hindustan at this moment of truth.

Dr.Subramanian Swamy has as much right—Political, Constitutional, Legal, Social, Cultural and Religious Right—to propose or suggest stern measures to be taken by the Government and the people and Society at large to put down Islamic Terrorism in India. If Firangi Memsahib Sonia Gandhi can talk about Right Wing Saffron Terrorism, if her chamchas like union Home Minister Pa Chidambaram, Digvijay Singh (an open champion of Islamic terrorism), Abhishek Singvi, Manish Tiwari, Jayanti Natarajan and Janardan Diwedi can make baseless attacks on the RSS which is essentially a cultural organization, if the Imam of Jamma Masjid can rant and rave against the singing of Vande Mataram and make out a case for the return of India to Mughal Rule, It is Dr.Subramanian Swamy’s inalienable, indivisible, inexorable and immutable birthright to write the article on the combating of Islamic Terrorism in the style, manner and measure he wrote in the DNA issue dated 14th July 2011.
The first Journalist to react in a highly pseudo-secular manner against the article of Dr.Subramanian Swamy was Seema Mustafa a Senior Journalist. I am giving below the full text of the article which she wrote in the DNA issue of July 19, 2011.
Dr Subramanian Swamy has inflamed passions through blatant falsehoods
Seema Mustafa | Tuesday, July 19, 2011
I have known Dr Subramanian Swamy for decades. While always a maverick on the extreme right side of the fence, he used to exercise some restraint in his writings. It was thus surprising to see his byline on an article that is not just totally bigoted and communal, but speaks of a paranoid and senile mind.
The language that the politician who heads the one-man Janata Party has used is reprehensible to say the least and I am sure there are laws in this country that can be invoked to take him to task for inflaming passions through complete falsehoods.
The Mumbai police are no closer to solving the Mumbai blasts today than they were when the terror attack took place. A poor grocer has died while being questioned by the police in custody with his shocked family attributing it to torture.
But instead of writing responsibly at this sensitive point in time, a politician who claims to be a legitimate representative of the people pens an article hurling accusations at Muslims, insisting that their goal is to kill Hindus in a “halal fashion” and take over India unless the “Hindus” react and act against the Constitution of India and the laws of this democratic land.
Swamy’s article has drawn absolutely excellent responses from the people of this country, mostly non-Muslims, to put him and his exhortations in their place.
But even so he reflects a minuscule mindset that delights in provoking violence by trying to consolidate the natural anger that stems from a terror attack. He has tried to use the moment not to unite the people through a language of peace, but to rouse passions by putting together a senseless tirade against Muslims and Islam.
The Hindus, he keeps insisting, are the targets. But when blasts take place in crowded market places in Mumbai or any other part of India, the targets are the people of India, Dr Swamy. Hindus and Muslims and Sikhs and Christians and Parsis and Jains and Brahmins and Dalits and all those who are at the spot die because the bomb cannot differentiate among religions and castes. India, as we have grown up to understand it, is a secular, democratic country belonging to all who are its citizens.
It is home to all religions, and it is a vibrant democracy that thrives on plurality and diversity. The terrorists, al-Qaeda, Lashkar or the Aseemanands, thus strike over and over again to convert this diversity into divisiveness so that India somehow emerges from the embers of death and destruction as Hindu and Muslim.
And thereby plunges into senseless violence that will erode its secular fabric and sovereignty, and retard its progress and development.
Individuals like Swamy are a terrorist’s delight, because they speak the language of the bomb, they vocalise the terrible destruction into words of hate and anger. In case anyone has missed the point behind the terror attack, there are the Swamys who quickly translate the blast into words like “every Hindu must become a virat Hindu” to stand against the “Islamic terrorist.”
In other words, the Hindus alone can defend India that in the Swamy jargon is “Hindu India”, and Muslims here exist to pursue their collective goal to “overawe India”, to “blast temples and kill Hindus. And that the “nation”, as he perceives it, should retaliate by destroying mosques and building temples.
Swamy speaks in his ignorance, or his deviousness and his cunning (he must edify us), of this huge Muslim plot to take over India. But it seems that it is people like him who are out to convert India into a theocratic state by trying to use terror attacks to push through this aim.
Muslims, he says, can be accepted only if they acknowledge their “Hindu legacy” as “India is a nation of Hindus”. Swamy claims to be educated, but clearly he has not read the Constitution of India, and has no idea of the laws that rule this country. He can be challenged in court for his remarks that are subverting the Constitution that does not distinguish between religion, caste and creed.
Fortunately our freedom fighters were men and women with the vision of giants, not rats, and firmly rejected the move to declare India a Hindu state with reasons that have withstood the test of time. Unlike Pakistan, that embraced Islam as a state religion, and saw successive rulers like Zia-ul-Haq remove the markers between religion and terrorism.
I am not a Hindu or a Muslim but an Indian, Dr Swamy. And this nationalist fervour of yours has such a jingoistic, ugly touch to it that it can only burn what it comes into contact with. The people of India are standing up to the terrorists by remaining united, by refusing to succumb to the kind of fires you and your ilk are stoking, and by raising a united —- and not a Hindu or a Muslim — voice against terrorism in all its forms. You are not required, and voices like yours have to perish if India is to remain a sovereign, secular, democratic republic.
Heraclitus wrote for all time when he said in 500 BC “Dogs bark at a person whom they do not know”. Perhaps Heraclitus had the so called sham journalists in the anti-Hindu mafia of Mass Media in India---both print and electronic—in view when he wrote that sentence. Though she claims to know Dr.Swamy, yet I can see that her hatred and prejudice against Dr.Subramanian Swamy are truly Islamic in the established Al Taquiya traditions of the Quran. That is why Dr.Subramanian Swamy has said:” I feel this abusive response was paid for and organised from Sonia HQ.”
Seema Mustafa seems to be under the delusion that she can replace Teesta Setalvad and Arundhati Roy in the affections of Firangi Memsahib Sonia Gandhi—a Catholic Imposter from Italy, owing her allegiance to the Pope in Rome and not to the letter and spirit of the Indian Constitution.
Seema Mustafa thinks it is her Minority right under the Indian Constitution to be economical and selective with her brand of Untruths/falsehoods. An objective and independent journalist (name unknown) has effectively rebutted her falsehoods in the following article:
Tuesday, July 19, 2011
Subramanian Swamy in his true insightful but provocative style has written an article in DNA July 14: ‘How to wipe out Islamic Terror’. Much of the article is on Islamic terrorism and how it threatens Hindus in India. In response Seema Mustafa, a noted journalist, has responded with another article in DNA July 19 titled ‘Dr Subramanian Swamy has inflamed passions through blatant falsehoods’. I have read only a few of Mustafa’s articles which have come across as good, sensible pieces of journalism. This particular piece of hers in response to Swamy stands out in some ways. Falsehoods she says. Okay, so before I come back to her article let’s try and understand what Swamy has said.
Swamy’s strongly worded article revolves around 5 goals that he attributes to the Islamists or the ‘unfinished’ Islamic business for India if you like. I believe these being central to his article would constitute the falsehoods that Seema Mustafa is talking about. I have given my infidel, paganish. Heathenish comments in green colour within brackets at the end of each GOAL listed below
GOAL 1 (FALSEHOOD 1): OVERAWE INDIA ON KASHMIR.
I need not go into the history of Pak-funding of militants, frequent incursions, Kargil war and all that. They never happened. Lakhs of Hindu Pandits displaced violently from their homes and are refugees in their own country. Falsehood, never happened. SmitaPrakash, another prominent journalist writes chillingly about how teenagers and youths were paid money in the stone pelting exercise. Oops, falsehood again! Geelani and company go around the country with inflammatory speeches. Falsehood! Again! Hoisting Pakistani flags at Lal Chowk on Republic Day. Falsehood, never happened. THERE YOU GO, MUSTAFA DISPROVES SWAMY’S GOAL NO.1 (Three Cheers to Seema Mustapha for her neutral passion only for Islamic Terrorism!)
GOAL 2 (FALSEHOOD 2): BLAST TEMPLES, KILL HINDU DEVOTEES.
Blasts at Varanasi this year. Oops, that wasn’t a temple, that was some Sulabh Sauchalay. Daring attack on Akshardham in Gandhinagar (Gujarat) in 2002. Again Akshardham is hardly a Hindu temple. Sai Baba temple blast in 2002. Misreported. Sankat Mochan temple blast. What a lie! All these are falsehoods because Muslims and Christians may have died in these temple blasts too. There might be more and I guess all of those are falsehoods too. Mustafa exposes Swamy’s lie on this one too. (Seema Mustafa would like us all to believe with truly Islamic fervour that only the Babri Masjid in Ayodhya was savagely destroyed by the RSS, VHP and the BJP! Not even a single Hindu Temple in India has been destroyed by the compassionate Muslims ever since the Birth of Islam in the first quarter of the 7th century!)
GOAL 3 (FALSEHOOD 3): TURN INDIA INTO DARUL ISLAM.
That’s a blatant lie by Swamy. This statement by the Imam Bukhari of Delhi was falsely reported by media all over. “We were rulers here for 800 years. Inshaallah, we shall return to power here once again”" and threatens “this country is in for another partition, so let us be prepared for nation- wide riots and violence. ” I would recommend readers to go through the post ‘Life,Liberty and the pursuit of Sharia’. Swamy is a liar. It is not just India, this particular falsehood is for the whole world and not just India. Mustafa, once again, brilliantly exposes the falsehood. (Hail Shariat Law of Seema Mustafa! Down with Indian Penal Code!)
GOAL 4 (FALSEHOOD 4): CHANGE INDIA’S DEMOGRAPHY BY ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION, CONVERSION, AND REFUSAL TO ADOPT FAMILY PLANNING.
Read my post ‘Make Mumbai aseparate state’. There isn’t still a handle on the number of illegal immigrants from Bangladesh, Pakistan or other places in Mumbai, Assam, Bengal and other places. The vote-bank hugging ‘secular’ government simply loves this. And when was the last time you ever heard of population control, family planning etc.? Those terms died in the late seventies. Mustafa doesn’t have much to say on this so her silence proves it to be an absolute falsehood. Bravo! (According to Seema Mustafa Muslims believe only in population planting/planning and not in infidel family planning!)
GOAL 5 (FALSEHOOD5): DENIGRATE HINDUISM THROUGH VULGAR WRITINGS AND PREACHING IN MOSQUES, MADRASSAS, AND CHURCHES TO CREATE LOSS OF SELF-RESPECT AMONGST HINDUS AND MAKE THEM FIT FOR CAPITULATION.
Well, I suppose at all mosques and madrasas they are only preaching love for humanity. I guess the FBI in the USA is stupid to be keeping a close vigil on all major mosques. The UK does it now too. Some mosques in Germany have even been shut down. It is only in India that Swamy is stupid to peddle this lie. Once again Seema Mustafa has nothing to say on this. So once again her silence on this proves it to be a falsehood. We would never get to know what goes on in mosques and madrasas because our ‘secular’ government considers that too important a sentiment to offend.
So now that Seema Mustafa has clearly established the falsehoods in Swamy’s article let’s see what she actually had to say in her piece. Much or almost all of her article is an ad hominem attack on Swamy and is basically an opinion piece. It neither confronts the basic premise of Swamy’s central arguments nor does it offer a solid, logical and factual rebuttal of his contentions. Needless to mention, Swamy’s article also contains quite a bit of his opinions and his solutions to the goals are basically his opinions, some of which are also impractical. But a response basically requires disproving the theories stated in an article. To that end, Swamy’s article contains nothing but commonly known facts which he outlines in the 5 goals. None of that is a big secret to anyone, anywhere in the world.
“Swamy’s article has drawn absolutely excellent responses from the people of this country, mostly non-Muslims, to put him and his exhortations in their place” says Seema. Oh yeah? How do you know? Did you carry out a survey? Did you research all the respondents in all forms of media? This is the typical defence of the secularist. Everyone says so, so it must be balderdash. Since when is that childish logic the foundation of mature debate?
“The Hindus, he keeps insisting, are the targets. But when blasts take place in crowded market places in Mumbai or any other part of India, the targets are the people of India, Dr Swamy. Hindus and Muslims and Sikhs and Christians and Parsis and Jains and Brahmins and Dalits and all those who are at the spot die because the bomb cannot differentiate among religions and castes. India, as we have grown up to understand it, is a secular, democratic country belonging to all who are its citizens” writes Mustafa. First note how cleverly and significantly she segregates Hindus, Brahmins, Dalits as three distinct entities. Isn’t that a common secular strategy? That’s the first line of attack of secularists. Separate Hindus into different groups.Wouldn't it be funny to suggest bombs kill Shias, Sunnis, Protestants and Catholics? Well, only in case of Hindus the bombs know the segregation I suppose..
There is a saying in Goa: “If you throw a stone it will invariably land on a bar”. But, of course, there is a tiny chance it can also land on a church. Same is true for people dying from bomb blasts I suppose. The bombs aimed at Hindus invariably land on other religious groups.
Yeah, bombs don’t know who they kill – brilliant. I don’t walk backwards ‘cuz I don’t have eyes in my ass! But those who plant bombs do know who their intended target is. I suppose those who planted bombs at Zaveri Bazar didn’t know there might be Muslims and Christians in the area. Of course, they also didn’t know that bazar is a predominantly Hindu and Jain bazar or a majority are Gujaratis. Of course, secularists conveniently forget that people have been dragged out of buses in Kashmir, Hindus have been sorted out and lined up separately and killed. So when terrorists have the opportunity they would indeed choose their specific targets. It’s only when it is not possible or inevitable that some collateral damage has to be accepted. How intelligent would it be to suggest that the 9/11 attack wasn’t Islamic terror because Muslims also died in those towers? Yeah, sure, we are so convinced of this line being churned out by politicians, now we have to be reminded repeatedly by journalists, that’s all.
Does anyone remember the Israeli raid on Entebbe airport in 1976. An Air-France airline was hijacked by terrorists and landed at Entebbe airport in Uganda. The terrorists allowed all to go except Jews. Does that explain that when the chance is available terrorists do choose who they wish to target or kill? I can believe politicians can make silly statements but can’t believe journalists too expect people to be so naïve.
Seema suggests Swamy may even face charges of hate speech or some law-violation. Well, I suppose he has no right to air his views some of which are based on facts but the likes of Digvijay Singh delight our secularists. I have yet to see one really strong piece in any major media outlet that questions the utterances of that man. Never mind that either. Let’s see some more brilliance from Mustafa.
“It (India) is home to all religions, and it is a vibrant democracy that thrives on plurality and diversity. The terrorists, al-Qaeda, Lashkar or the Aseemanands…” Hahahhaha! That really takes the cake! You win Seema! Aseemanand, whose arrest is full of controversy and still not convicted of anything, is sweepingly bracketed with Al-qaeeda and LeT. So fools like me finally realise now, through the wisdom of the likes of Seema Mustafa, that Aseemanand is as big a threat to India and Hindus as are Al-Qaeeda and LeT. I guess that is what RG meant by 99% terror stopped!
There, the falsehoods of Subramanian Swamy stand thoroughly exposed. On behalf of Seema Mustafa should I say, ‘QED’? (Posted by Ravinar at 7/19/2011 01:24:00 PM)
The next reaction against Dr.Subramanian Swamy’s article came from Wajahat Habibullah, the Chairman of the National Minorities Commission. This was reported in Two.Circles.Net as follows.
Minority panel, civil society furious at Swamy’s ‘hate article’, might issue notice
Submitted by admin6 on 20 July 2011 - 6:17pm
By Md. Ali, TwoCircles.net,
New Delhi: The National Commission for Minorities (NCM) has expressed strong objection to allegedly a “hate article” against the Muslim community by Subramanian Swamy, president of the Janata Party and a professor of economics. The Commission might send a show cause notice to him.
Swamy wrote an article titled “Analysis: How to wipe out Islamic terror” in the DNA, a mainstream English daily on July 16, in which he advocated among other things, denying voting rights to Muslims if they don’t acknowledge with pride that their ancestors were Hindus.

Talking to TwoCircles.net over phone, Wajahat Habibullah said that Swamy’s article on “How to wipe out Islamic terror’ was ‘highly objectionable. Swamy’s article was discussed at length in the yesterday’s meeting of the NCM where strong objections were raised on the issue.” The article contains “highly disturbing views regarding Muslims in India and it incites violence and talks about destroying a community,” Habibullah further added.
Habibullah said that the NCM was discussing all the aspects with its legal cell and didn’t rule out sending a show cause notice to Swamy.
When this correspondent asked the NCM Chief about Swamy’s right to express his views, he replied, “you have the right to have your views and express it also, but you can’t incite violence.”
Taking inspiration and perhaps even Sonia Congress instructions from the National Minorities Commission, Maharashtra State Minorities Commission has called for the arrest of Dr.Subramanian Swamy for his “extreme xenophobic right-wing thoughts" expressed in a newspaper article. I am presenting below the concerned news item in Indo-Asian News Service (IANS) dated 30 July 2011.
30 Jul 2011 12:28:10 PM IST
State Minorities Commission Vice Chairman Abraham Mathai wrote to Mumbai police chief Arup Patnaik, urging him to initiate criminal charges against Swamy under Section 153 (A) of the Indian Penal Code.
"I am writing to you following uproar and a feeling of insecurity among the minority community caused by an article written by Dr. Subramanian Swamy entitled 'How to wipe out Islamic terror' published in the DNA of 16th July 2011," the letter said.
Swamy, a doctorate from Harvard, penned an op-ed that advocated denial of voting rights to non-Hindus with the goal of stemming terrorist attacks in India.
"The extreme xenophobic right-wing thoughts expressed in it are quite disturbing and the article is socially irresponsible and completely anti-Islamic. It is also alarming that Dr. Swamy is trying to incite Islamophobia using his freedom of expression to propagate hate through stereotyping," Mathai said.
Mathai also said that there are "Hindu terrorists" as well in jails who have equally perpetrated heinous acts.
"As a matter of fact, the Muslim community has as much stake as any in the progress, security and well being of India as a nation. Dr. Swamy's bizarre solution is converting Muslims into Hinduism, rather than allowing each individual to choose to live as he/she wishes as expressed in Article 25 of the constitution," he said.
Abraham Mathai is acting according to the instructions of P.Chidambaram who is acting under the instructions of Firangi Memsahib Sonia Gandhi and Ahmed Patel. It is reliably understood that Sonia directed Digvijay Singh to call on Union Home Minister Chidambaram at his office on 29th July 2011 in the afternoon. The meeting lasted for 30minutes. Soon after that meeting, Digvijay Singh said: Action must be initiated against Dr.Subramanian Swamy by the National Minorities Commission. Simultaneously instructions were issued to the Maharashtra State Minorities Commission to take immediate action to prosecute Dr.Subramanian Swamy.
The Chairman of the National Minorities Commission Wajahat Habibullah and the Maharashtra State Minorities Commission Vice Chairman Abraham Mathai in their over anxiety to somehow placate and please Firangi memsahib Sonia Gandhi seem to have overlooked the patent fact that Dr.Subramanian Swamy wrote his article on the combating of Islamic Terrorism in the DNA issue of 14th July 2011---the very next day after the Mumbai Blasts on 13th July 2011 which killed 29 innocent people, apart from causing grievous injury to several hundreds.
If the Muslim and Christian Minorities can get hurt by some blatant and brutal facts presented by Dr.Swamy in his article, he too has a right to be emotionally upset and hurt by the unprovoked bomb blasts that took place in Mumbai on 13th July 2011. All the bomb attacks on Hindu temples and major during the last 10 years have been carried out by the Minority Terrorist Groups in India fully backed and financed by the ISI of Pakistan. This is an irrefutable fact. Taking note of this obvious fact, Dr.Swamy must have felt that the Mumbai blasts of 13th July 2011 must have been carried out by the same Islamic Groups. His article must be viewed as an immediate response to the Mumbai blasts.
In his article Dr.Subramanian Swamy says that all available evidence points to a concerted and ongoing effort to systematically destroy India and bring it under the Islamic Fold. This is a daring, high risk adventure against a nation of more than 1 billion people of which 850 million are non-Muslims. Amazingly, Islamists are making headway---and the siege of India by political Islam is intensifying despite the current economic resurgence. The Project Conquest-India has some big-name backers---nation states like Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and Iran whose passion is Islamic conquest. Against this background Dr. Subramanian Swamy has suggested some very stern and stringent measures to safeguard the National Security and the welfare of 850 million non-Muslim population of India. I am unable to understand as to how this perception of Dr.Subramanian Swamy can affect Minority Rights.
I have read the article of Dr.Swamy very carefully. THERE IS NO INCITEMENT TO VIOLENCE WHATSOEVER AS ALLEGED BY WAJAHAT HABIBULLAH and ABRAHAM MATHAI. Both of them are reading into the article and loading their personal prejudices into it to file a baseless Case against Dr.Subramanian Swamy in order to give political mileage to Sonia Congress Party in general and Firangi Memsahib Sonia Gandhi in particular.
After seeing the patently one-sided and partisan functioning of the Central Minorities Commission and the State Minorities Commission in Maharashtra, I can not help coming to the conclusion that it is high time that A MAJORITIES COMMISSION IS CONSTITUTED BY THE GOVERNMENT OF INDIA TO GIVE FULL PROTECTION TO THE 850 MILLION HINDUS OF INDIA WHO HAVE BEEN REDUCED TO A STATE OF THIRD CLASS STATUS IN INDIA. IF THIS CANNOT BE DONE THEN THERE IS AN IMPERATIVE NATIONAL NEED FOR ABOLISHING THE CENTRAL MINORITIES COMMISSION AND ALL THE STATE MINORITIES COMMISSIONS FORTHWITH. I HAVE MADE OUT A CASE FOR THIS IN PART III OF THIS ARTICLE.
The action being initiated by the National Minorities Commission and the State Minorities Commission in Maharashtra against Dr.Subramanian Swamy is an assault on Freedom of Speech and thought of Dr.Subramanian Swamy guaranteed under the Indian Constitution. Freedom of thought (also called freedom of conscience and freedom of ideas) is the freedom of an individual to hold or consider a fact, viewpoint, or thought, independent of others' viewpoints. It is closely related to, yet distinct from, the concept of freedom of expression.
I fully endorse the observations of Justice Cardozo of America that: “Civil liberties are not empty slogans but cherished protections of the human spirit. They derive their meaning from history and are given pertinence by the contemporary society”.
Justice Brandeis of America said: “The test of freedom of speech is readiness to allow it even to men whose opinions seem to you wrong and even dangerous”.
There is also another vital dimension to this issue. Truth and knowledge can function and flourish only if error may freely be exposed. And error will go unchallenged if dogma, no matter how widely accepted or dearly held, may not be questioned. Every man must be allowed to challenge it by speech or by pen, not merely by silent thought. Thought, like other instincts, will atrophy unless formally exercised. If men cannot speak or write freely, they will soon cease to think freely.
Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes in a famous judgement in Abrams vs US (250 US 616,624, 1919 observed as follows: “But when men have realised that time has upset many fighting faiths, they may come to believe even more than they believe the very foundations of their own conduct that the ultimate good desire is better reached by FREE TRADE IN IDEAS—that the best test of truth is the power of the thought to get itself accepted in the competition of the market, and that truth is the only ground upon which their wishes can be carried out”.
In another judgement in US vs Schwimmer 279 US (1928) Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes wrote as follows: “IF THERE IS ANY PRINCIPLE OF THE CONSTITUTION THAT MORE IMPERATIVELY CALLS FOR ATTACHMENT THAN ANY OTHER IT IS THE PRINCIPLE OF FREE THOUGHT—NOT FREE THOUGHT FOR THOSE WHO AGREE WITH US BUT FREEDOM FOR THE THOUGHT THAT WE HATE. I THINK THAT WE SHOULD ADHERE TO THAT PRINCIPLE WITH REGARD TO ADMISSION INTO, AS WELL AS TO LIFE WITHIN, THIS COUNTRY”.
The Central Minorities Commission and the State Minorities Commission of Maharashtra are trying to deny both freedom of speech and freedom of thought to Dr.Subramanian Swamy. I have no doubt whatsoever that Dr.Subramanian Swamy will get his due Justice in any impartial Court of Law.
Will Durant, the world famous historian, who wrote several volumes of Story Of Civilization summed up the destructive record of Islam in India in the following words:
“The Mohammedan conquest of India is probably the bloodiest story in history. The Islamic historians and scholars have recorded with great glee and pride the slaughters of Hindus, forced conversions, abduction of Hindu women and children to slave markets and the destruction of temples carried out by the warriors of Islam during 800 AD to 1700 AD. Millions of Hindus were converted to Islam by sword during this period.”
Our so-called Minority Commissions would love to ignore if not dismiss the above observations of Will Durant as rabidly communal and anti-Muslim, written with the deliberate “Right-wing Hindu Fascist” intention of hurting the religious feelings of the “peaceful and ever-compassionate” Muslims of India and inciting violence leading to communal disharmony.
