Ulema Express arrives in Delhi

Hundreds of Muslims from Azamgarh town of Uttar Pradesh has arrived at the Old Delhi Railway Station in a special train christened "Ulema Express" . They want to hold demonstrations in the national capital to protest against police shootout at Batla House in which two terrorists from Azamgarh were killed! It seems they are particularly angry with M C Sharma being awarded Ashok Chakra.

Mulana Amir Rasadi, convener of Ulama Council that organized the Ulema Express trip, said.

"We waited enough but by awarding the Ashok Chakra to M C Sharma (the police inspector killed in the shootout) the Congress led UPA (United Progressive Alliance) has authenticated the September 19 Batla House encounter. "The fact remains that we have lost our two promising youths. Sharma was honoured even before any probe into such a horrible incident. We have lost all faith in the system and are now united to show New Delhi our real strength,"

A poll on Magalore incident

A curious case of "Secular" Media Reporting

Few weeks back secular media reported a speech of Shri. Mohanji Bhagwat, general secretary of RSS. According to the news report, It MohanJi said

"Hindu community is not the only community that has monopoly on the nation's culture."

Now it seems media grossly misreported BhagwatJi's speech. His actual speech was:

"We are inheritors of the glorious hoary culture. Actually, though the world calls it a Hindu culture, it is not a monopoly of the Hindus. it is for all human beings. It is actually "Manavata" – 'humanitarian view of life' – live and let live."

The Report from news media is misleading in the sense that Shri. Mohanji Bhagwat has used the word 'Hindu' as a cultural identity of the nation, and said that the content of this culture universal and is beneficial to all humanity. The newsmedia misquoted news and the heading based on it identify the word Hindu with some community.

Mangalore Incident: Sit back and evaluate

The secular media has gone berserk on the shameful incident of 40 people reportedly barged into a pub in Malgalore and viciously attacked girls who were at the pub.  I guess this being in a BJP ruled state gave them additional motivational.

Moral policing is not something only Hindu Organizations do. We have seen moral policing by each and every group in India.

  • Why do people forget about banning of Dance Bars in Mumbai?
  • How about banning of various books and Films by both communists and congress?
  • You cannot grow certain kind of plant in J&K as it is used in blending beer and Liquor is  against Islam!!!!

So please spare us from this moral outrage over Hindu organizations doing moral policing.

Then come the issue of some youths attacking people in a PUB some of them happened to females.I am not in favour of people taking law and order in their hand.

But can some one answer these questions for me:-

  • Will you allow a Dance Bar (in that matter any Bar) near to your house. I remember there was a plan to start a bar near to my house and the entire community came together and started an agitation and got in stopped. So every community like to keep its neighborhood clean.
  • How is this so different from the various public lynching cases we have seen in past? A simple browse would give us 100's of such cases.

This is a simple law and order problem and it should be tackled at that level  and Karnataka Govt has already initiated action against them.

Padma Bhushan fr Sister Nirmala

Sister Nirmala of the Missionaries of Charity is among ten luminaries awarded the Padma Vibhushan this year, the country’s second highest civilian honour after the Bharat Ratna.

Why not other Hindu Charities like Mata Amritanandamayi?

Long live secularism?
