Muslims in Gujarat

L. K. Advani on his blog mentions that Muslims in Narendra Modi’s Gujarat are in far better situation compared to other states of Gujarat. He sites the finding of the Sachar committee report to support his this claim. Well, I read report’s findings & figures put up on his blog and statistically one can agree with what Mr. Advani has to say. I don’t read much into these figure as figures sometimes may be misleading and don’t portray true picture. But by saying that I don’t want to take away credit from Mr. Modi. One thing which I really appreciate is during Mr. Modi’s rule poor & common man has not lost single day’s wage because of the communal riots, curfews & tense situations. In Congress raj, every now & then poor people suffered because of the riots and can not go out to earn their rozi roti. I definitely see this as an achievement of Mr. Modi.

I read about this on DeshGujarat. On this post, I also read the comment of one of the Muslim guy. He had put up some suggestion on what Mr. Modi’s government should do in his comment point wise and after reading that I also put up my thoughts in form of comment to his points. Following is what I commented point wise :

Instructing Police to be cordial to Muslims especially Muslim institutions which should not be harrassed on mere suspicion without evidences.

    Why police should give free hand to Muslim organisation? Don’t you think many times RSS or other Hindu sangathans are also victimised? So your belief that only Muslim organisations are being targeted is incorrect.

Instructing Intelligence Agencies to shed off their pre-conceived notions that all Islamic organisations stand for terror.

It’s bitter fact that not all Muslims are terrorist but all terrorists are Muslims. It’s very bitter thing to accept but it’s truth also. Many bombers/terrorists are very innocent but their real innocence comes out only when they attempt for terror acts. Recent example is the Pakistani born US citizen who did the failed attempt to do bomb blast in New York. None of his neighbors even doubted his conduct but in the end he did something really insane. By doing all these Muslims only harming to the Muslims world over. If Muslims continue doing such things who is going to allow them to rent the house, give job, etc. And after doing all this Muslims cry about discrimination? Is this fair? In India, Muslims are treated in utmost fair manner but still they are not happy n taking the path of violence than only allah can save Islam and Muslims.

Framing rules to allow Muslims to purchase properties in any given area from any developers

Now you are asking for reservation even in real estate sector. It’s really sad that politicians of our country have made Muslims of our country so handicapped by throwing the bites of reservation at them every now & then. I stay in Singapore and here housing sector is by and large controlled by government i.e. 75% of the houses here are built and managed by government and rest 25% is open for private players. In government controlled estates, they do have quotas for each race but in private sector they don’t enforce such thing. But still people of different races have formed the packets by buying and stay together in private properties. So it’s human tendency to stay with the people of the same race. Also, forcing such things may work in Singapore because larger part of the real estate market is controlled by government while in India, exactly opposite scenario is there. So I think forcing private players to give reservation in property is not fair. Pls come out of the reservation mentality.

Also, in this point I would like to mention one more thing. When Muslims want to stay within community, they should learn to respect the sensitivities of other races and religions. I remember when I was in Mumbai and staying in Borivali, we had few Muslim houses in our near by locality. We also had jain temple near by. On the day of Bakri id, despite of requesting them, Muslims were butchering the goat in front of temple gates. Do you think it was absolutely required? Why you don’t respect the sensitivities of other religions? This is also one of the reason why Hindu societies doesn’t allow Muslims. If I talk about Singapore, here government doesn’t allow butchering the goat in open on ids. Govt. allows sacrifice of goat only in mosque and then all have to take mutton from the mosque only. As Indian citizen we have fundamental right of liberty and freedom of expression but while exercising these rights one must realise that he/she should be sensitive enough to others.

Instruct various ministries to encourage Muslim groups to build institutins like Schools, Colleges, Hospitals and not create obstacles in doing so

Why government should encourage only Muslim schools and institute. Government has just one race to take care? You have your own system in forms of Madresas. Why don’t you try to strengthen this traditional system rather then developing parallel system. Try to remove radical elements out of it and strengthen the system and encourage the well being of the communities rather than breeding anti social elements.

Include Muslims in formulating developmental policies

If you want Muslims say in formulating policies then ask people from your community to take part in democratic process and get elected and take part in formulating policies. Join mainstream and contribute in positive way rather than relying on government to do it for you. Be a good to society and they will definitely take care of you.

Curb extreme and fascist movements for the larger interest of the society

curbing extremist from society has to be done by Muslims only. When government takes some harsh steps to curb extremist, Muslim organisations only start shouting. Your strengthen the grass root system in such a way that radical elements can not brain wash the youth easily. Government can only play a supportive role into this I think.


While I put this on blog, one thing I need to clarify is I don’t have anything personal against this guy or against Muslim community. I had and even in today’s date I have some Muslim friends who have been very gentle and nice. I am writing this only to express my view points on some of the misunderstanding most of the Muslims have in their minds. I’m firmly against the populist and minority appeasement policies of government and when I talk about minority it’s not only Muslims but any minority community.


I don’t know how ethical it is to throw upon someone’s comment from other blog on my blog. But I’m doing this as I think I’m not harming interest of any one, I’m not trying to violate any one’s privacy and I’m not humiliating / bringing disrespect to any human being or race in general. However, if someone has objection, pls revert by putting comment.


Big B & Narendra Modi : Scapegoats

Last week two eminent personalities of our country hogged all the limelight in Media. The first person was Big B i.e. Shri Amitabh Bachchhan & next one Gujarat’s CM Shri Narendra Modi (Someone may disagree with me but he is definitely eminent personality of India). Both were made the scapegoat of immoral conduct of media and pseudo secularism observed by the Congress party. It was once again proved that Media in a race to to get the news bytes & TRP can stoop to any lows and Pseudo secularist Congress just know how to play around with the feelings of common man.

First let’s talk about Big B. All the drama started with the presence of Big B for the inauguration of new four lanes of Sea link bridge in Mumbai. It is known thing that Big B is not enjoying good terms with Gandhi family. So all the religious slaves of Gandhi family have to distant themselves from Big B. Also, recently Big B associated himself with the Brand Gujarat. Since then whole media is working overtime to portray him political and cook up some stories about it. Media dissect every minute thing which Big B writes on his blog and cook up some exciting story out of it. Congress is thinking that his CM shaking hand with Big B or sharing dais with Big B will put their secular party image in danger coz now Big B has agreed to promote tourism of Gujarat ruled by Mr. Narendra Modi. How immature? At the same time isn’t it an attempt to neglect/insult/isolate Gujarat? Is congress party trying to convey message that whoever will associate themselves with Gujarat will be isolated and neglected? Why such an insult for Gujarat? If Congress has problem with Narendra Modi or BJP is fine but why to hate the progress initiative of Gujarat? Big B has hit back on this attitude of congress party very well on his blog. Read Big B’s defence on his blog : After reading this can anyone say he is wrong in anyways? He has also put up the invitation letters and appreciation letters he has received from state government ( This clearly shows that Big B was good till he didn’t associate himself with brand Gujarat. Congress party in compulsion to object BJP is doing injustice with Gujarat. Hate Mr. Modi but why any of the progress related initiative of Gujarat? While I’m writing this, news has come that Maharashtra CM has visited event in Pune a day earlier so that he doesn’t have to share the dais with Big B. Big B has written on his blog that Abhishek’s posters and video were also removed from the WWF earth hour event (for which he is brand ambassador) because the event was to be attended by the Delhi CM Sheila Dixit.  Isn’t it ridiculous? Big B is decorated personality nationally and internationally and he definitely doesn’t deserve cold shoulders in his home nation, home state and home city. Congress party is fine to associate themselves with goddesses of corruption like Jaylalithas & Mayawatis but not fine with person who is trying to help out Gujarat in it’s progress initiative. Is it justified? Also, as Big B mentioned why Congress is targeting him only. Why not congress is boycotting likes of Ratan Tata or Mukesh Ambani who has their big business interests in Gujarat. Why congress is adopting double standard? Congress has definitely need to explain it’s stand.

Now let’s talk about another person who is beloved child of media & soft target of the pseudo secular politics observed in our country. Narendra Modi yesterday appeared in front of the SIT (Special Investigation Team) appointed by Apex court. I’m happy that Mr. Modi appeared against SIT and set and example. In India rich and influential people know the way to evade the judicial system and if Mr. Modi had wished he could have done so easily. But in a spirit of common man, he appeared against SIT when he was called. I think he set the right example in political system to respect the law and order. He proved that he is not like Madhu Koda or Shibu Soren who is constantly evading the investigations or arrests by hook or crook. I would like to remind people about absconding Shibu Soren (to avoid the arrest) when he was cabinet minister in UPA government. Likes of Sajjan kumar and Jagadeesh tytler still evading the warrants and inquiries in 84 sikh riots in Delhi.  Those who says Mr. Modi forgot his राज धर्म at the time of Godhra riots then why they are only questioning Mr. Modi? Why not Mayawati is being questioned or isolated for wasting public’s money on statues and getting herself garlanded with currency notes? Is Mayawati untouchable for pseudo secular political parties? I want to ask our political parties that secularism is the only ethos people of our nation wants? People of nation doesn’t deserve good infrastructure, better job prospects, quality life, etc. Modi is elected representative of Gujarat through democratic process but still not respected by Central Government. If that is not the case then why Central government is not pressing for his case when US is not granting him visa for USA on humanitarian ground? This is definitely not the kind of treatment elected head of state deserves.  English media is always busy in painting villainous picture of Modi and showing Gujarat & Mr. Modi in bad light. Why English media is giving so much of importance to interrogation of Mr. Modi and Gujarat? English media only remembers Godhra but can’t see anything good about Mr. Modi or Gujarat while ignoring the wrong doings in rest of the political system.

Such things are totally disgusting. Hope the better sense prevail for our Media and political fulcrum. Amen!!

NaMo as teacher

Today I found this post on DeshGujart website. In this post, NaMo has been shown taking a class of primary students in Gujarat.

Every year at the time of starting academic year, NaMo organise such campaigns to enroll children into the school. The idea behind the campaigns is quiet noble i.e. सर्व शिक्षा अभियान". But seeing NaMo taking class himself and taking active part is campaign really makes me feel happy.

I sincerly hope this is not just a publicity gimmick. In the recent general election NaMo tried his best to install Mr. Advani as prime minister but his appeal couldn’t reach the masses. Also, NaMo got knee jerk result in his own state by just managing 15 seats which shows that still he needs to do a bit more in order to win the confidance of even a  people of Gujarat. Perhaps it will take some time for him to become more acceptable and make his presence felt across the length n breadth of India.

Btw, keep up the good work Mr. Modi.
