Dr Zafarul-Islam Khan runs away from debate on 'Hindu Terror'

 Dr Zafarul-Islam Khan runs away 
from debate on 'Hindu Terror'

1. Today I received a mail from Dr Zafarul-Islam Khan (copied below). It is a letter addressed by him to the HM, on "Hindu terror" asking for a ban on RSS.

2. I replied to him as under. 

3. Instead of replying and debating, he unsubscribed me from his mailing list.

Subject: Re: [] Hindutva terror—Mushawarat writes to Home Minister demanding probe

Dear Dr Zafarul-Islam Khan,

I refer to the recent Press Note dated 5th Feb. 2014, which you have sent me. It is a letter written by you to the Home Minister, on the ‘Hindutva terror’ by RSS.

I have watched you on many TV debates. I thought you (as the editor of Milli Gazette and President of the All India Muslim Majlis-e-Mushawarat, claiming to be the Umbrella body of the Indian Muslim organisations) will be a modern and broadminded Muslim. But from your letter to the Home Minister, I am shocked to know that you are nothing but a fanatic Muslim.

Probably, the enormous support Narendra Modi receives from nationalist Muslims all over India has rattled you. Hence, you are trying to propagate your fanatic views among Muslims, and have taken this opportunity (of press reports on RSS) to tarnish RSS.

A report in the Caravan magazine (I do not know how many people know of its existence) has made you jump with joy, and you have gone to the extent of demanding a ban on RSS. In this age of "paid news" or "manufactured news" with a view to increasing readership, your relying on a report in an unknown magazine is surprising.

But the intention of my writing this letter to you is different. I feel that you are wasting your time and energy in taking on RSS, which is already a dead horse as far as Hindutva is concerned.

I was in the RSS for 30 years. During the last 10 years I was a Nagarsanghchalak and was in their Dharma Jagran Samiti too. Three years back I have given up all my responsibilities with RSS, not for the reason you think, but exactly for the opposite reason. My reason for leaving RSS was: "RSS is making Hindu Warriors into eunuch (napusank)".

Please note that RSS has given up aggressiveness long back. Today, it does not even want to hurt a fly. So, your accusing them of planting bombs to kill human beings is just ridiculous. And involvement of RSS chief Shri Mogan Bhagawat and Shri Indresh Kumar in such alleged plots is just rubbish.

The RSS today is not what it was in 1982 when I joined it. Today, RSS has lost its moorings. You might have watched the Times Now debate on 24th Jan. 2014. Shri Ram Madhav was very pathetic disclaiming Hindu Rashtra and blaming Veer Savarkar for propagating Hindu Rashtra. That clearly shows that RSS has given up Hindutva and is now competing with others to be a secular NGO, which does not go well with Hindu Intellectual Warriors like me.

My earnest appeal to you would therefore be NOT to be obsessed with RSS any more, and leave them to do their ‘social service’ unconcerned with Hindutva. Fortunately for me, and unfortunately for you, today many Hindu organisations have come up, in competition with RSS, who are more aggressive in taking up Hindu causes. Hindus have started trusting these new Hindu organisations more than RSS, for protecting this Hindu nation, from radical and fundamentalist elements like you. You are going to be having your hands full in future by dealing with these new Hindu organisations which are more vibrant.

By demanding a ban on RSS, a nationalist NGO, on the basis of baseless and motivated press reports, you are trying to spread communal venom. You have proved that you are no better than a fundamentalist Moulvi who does not think that a world exists outside Islam too.

You talk about demolishing the ‘legitimate secular edifice’. You cannot fool Hindus by calling you ‘secular’. A Muslim can never be secular. The word ‘secular Muslim’ is a misnomer. A person can be either secular or Muslim. He cannot be both. The moment a Muslim says that he is secular, he ceases to be a Muslim and vice versa.

Hence, as long as Hindus are a majority, India will remain secular - even if it becomes a Hindu Nation - the foundation stone for which will be laid by May 2014, probably with the support of many nationalist Muslims!

You need not worry. In a Hindu Nation (unlike Islamic nations), there will be no discrimination on the basis of religion and all citizens irrespective of their religious affiliations (again unlike Islamic nations) will have equal rights and duties.

Before I end, I would like to say that some Muslim scholars have utilised the forum of Hindu Voice, to express their views on ‘Burqua’, ‘Suifism’ and ‘women circumcision’. A Hindu can never be a fanatic or a terrorist, you see.

Thank you.P. DeivamuthuEditor, Hindu Voice.

Subject: [] Hindutva terror—Mushawarat writes to Home Minister demanding probe

The Milli Gazette
Press Release

Hindutva terror—Mushawarat writes to Home Minister demanding probe

Mushawarat President, Dr Zafarul-Islam Khan, has written to the Union Home Minister asking him why organisations under his direct control are going slow on Hindutva terror? Many new revelations are made by the prime accused Swami Aseemanand in his latest interview with the Caravan magazine. These demand a rigorous probe of the Hindutva terror right to the top of the RSS leadership. Following is the text of the letter:

5 February, 2014

Shri Sushil Kumar Shinde
Hon’ble Home Minister of India
New Delhi 110001

Dear Sushil Kumar Shindeji,
I hope you had time to read “The Believer” report in the current issue of Caravan magazine which is on the news-stands now. Based on four interviews with Swami Aseemanand, a prime accused in Hindutva terror cases, this report makes abundantly clear that the umpteen terror attacks across the country including Samjhauta, Ajmer and Makkah Masjid, were not the handiwork of a small group. Rather, the whole RSS organisation including its current supremo Mohan Bhagwat and top leader Indresh Kumar blessed, planned, financed and protected the saffron terrorists. It is also clear that Aseemanand is not remorseful in the least about what he and his group of terrorists did as says that there is no point of being sorry about them and that these acts will continue.

It is a painful reality that the security and probe organisations under your direct control have failed to properly probe the saffron terror attacks which were passed off as handiwork of Muslim boys. The organisations under your direct control are yet to even interrogate Mohan Bhagwat and Indresh Kumar. This should have been done long ago as Malegaon 2008 and Ajmer blast chargesheets are clear about these and other RSS leaders’ role in planning and financing those blasts.

This is a fit case to outlaw RSS as it has been flagrantly violating the undertaking it gave in 1949 to get the ban lifted on its activities (which was imposed after the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi by its members in 1948) that it will remain a social organisation and it will shun political activity. Now it is clear that not only it indulges in divisive political activity through its proxy (BJP), it also clearly indulges in high treason by planning, financing and abetting terror activities aimed at dismantling the secular and constitutional system of our country.

Mr Shinde, you and your UPA government will be responsible to the nation and to history if you fail in your constitutional duty to punish the real perpetrators of terror in India as this activity is not a simple crime but high treason since it involves a plan to illegally demolish the legitimate secular edifice of our polity.

Yours sincerely

Dr Zafarul-Islam Khan
