    The only difference is Taslima Nasreen and Salman Rushdie have come to India. While MF Hussain was hounded out of India. Ramanujam essay was banned and Cow slaughter ban has been applied with a clause of guilty until proven innocent and 7 year prison sentence. Even if you kill a person you get 7 year sentence.

    So the govt. has been more practive in projecting the Hindu community to be more illeberal and regressive as the Muslim extreme demands never get met in any case.

    Actually praying to the Sun makes people look like idiots and those who can’t see that are insecure or narrow minded.

    This guy sided with the muslim attackers of Mumbai. He allout approved of and condoned the attack on Mumbai where nearly 200 people died at the hands of the muslims. Soon after he hosted a documentary sympatizing with the muslim attackers. He is a crook and scamp and should not be trusted. He continually degrades and bad mouth India on American television. Wahe up Indians, you have a maasive problem in your country where the muslims are seeking to destroy you – they side with the rest of the muslims world and not india.

    You are patently wrong. He never condoned the attack. In fact, his documentary was a clear expose of Pakistan’s role in the attack. I watched it twice.

    Get your facts right.

    Not true. He played a part in the hbo documentary which exposed the chilling fanaticism involved in the way the mumbai attackers and their handlers operated. No Islamist will do that.

    “The Politics of Rage: Why Do They Hate Us, in the Newsweek in the aftermath of 9/11. It was delusional, he argued, to think that terrorists target America because they are simply insane. ”

    Hate (or rather imagined hate) is a part of the Islamic Theology.

    What is the explanation otherwise for destroying the various deities of Kaaba by Prophet Muahmmed if not his hatred towards the people who wouldn’t want to agree with him and his theories on how the Kaaba was built by Abraham. According to archaeological evidence, even the city of Mecca didn’t exist before 3-4th century AD forget about Mecca existing prior to that. So, Muhammed just imagined it in his mind and wanted others to believe it as well and flew into a stubborn confrontation when others refused to accept up is down and down is up.

    This is the core of Islam. Every religion is a way to channelize/package some human aspect. “Original and orthodox” Islam packages/redirects the human emotion of “anger and hate” into violence directed disbelievers.

    # Zinda Hoon, Kamal Attaturk summed up the Kuran most appropriately and most concisely:” The opinions of an immoral Arab sheikh”. Every blind-folded muslim should be aware of that. And every Musl1m of this sub-continent should be aware that there was a terrible incident of brutal choice that their ancestor had to make to ensure, his head is not separated from his body and the option to save his wife and children from slavery, that made them moslems. The ones with minimal education are just zombies who think they are pseudo-arabs.

    Muhammad wanted to establish the worship of One Deity, the one without any form or shape. He unified all the warring tribes into one single nation, made racism inhuman and unlawful, stopped the exploitation of the poor by abolishing usury, raised the position of women socially, politically and economically by giving them rights still unheard of in many parts of the wrold including India… and there are hundred more reasons to respect that man and follow him as a leader. If you have any humanism left in you, you would respect him for his achievements at least. Only arrogant animals attack him the way you have done.

    @ Abu, only an animal would consider a paedophile, mass-murderer, caravan-raider, ****** torturer. slave-merchant worthy of respect. He founded a cult that is based on hate and promised rewards in his version of heaven of 72 virgins, copious wines and 80,000 servants for all who are ready to die and kill for the sake of his cult. Just look all around the world right from Russia, Australia to Argentina, there are people inspired by those “teachings” to commit atrocities on innocent civilians. Just because you are out of that scope does not mean you should sit smug in your well of indifference.

    When was this article written? Could you not have changed some of the references from back in 2005 or so? “Iraq is a rogue nation”? Really? Hasn’t the dust settled on that one? Even a cut and paste artist makes some editorial efforts before pushing out stuff.

    That said, I share your admiration for Fareed Zakaria.

    However, he is not just a role model for muslims. He is role model for any immigrant in USA. Indeed, he doesn’t identify himself as a muslim on any public forum, nor does anybody else (except of course some right wing nuts leaving comments on public blogs)

    Finally an article from zia with which I don’t have a problem with…almost. Zia calls zakaria right but the American right calls him left. He gets all the best knowledgable guests and his shows are generally informative because of that. Ah…one more thing. Maybe he succeeded because he didn’t wear his religion on his lapel and he has talent and did not restrict himself to looking at the world through a religious and ummah prism like our Zia…

  • anil

    I think there are no dearth of Zakarias in India but India chooses not to find or focus on them. For obvious votebanking reason it chooses to look at things from wrong end of the spectrum and gets what it deserves.

    Fareed Zakaria is one the rarest of the rare persons who wears very lightly “the accident of his birth” in a family that is moslem. He does not make a living , wearing his “muslimness” on his sleeves. He never has an Islamic takkiya (lying) way of approaching facts, he is very sound on logic and given the constraints of dealing with islamic terrorism, does appear to go quite a distance. He has been quite categorical about Pakistan’s dubious role as the epicentre of Islamic Terrorism, he is, as yet, not an apologist.

    Dr. Rafiq Zakaria wrote a book in defense of the Quran when the Saffron terrorist Arun Shourie attacked the Holy Book in the 80s in the columns of the Indian Express – that perhaps is his crime in you view. Dr. Rafiq Zakaria was an Islamic scholar, an educationist who established many educational institutions and a Congress leader with the most secular of credentials. Only those who are extremists and terrorists themselves would call such a genteel, scholarly soul a closet terrorist.

    Arun shourie is a dickhead and an islamophobe. But someone who wears the mantle of YOUNG BENGAL(read about the movement in wikipaedia) will find ZakariaSnr a clost jihadi.
    Just like jehadis think ISLAM HAS ALL THE ANSWERS , yet need VIAGRA invented by RATIONAL SCIENCE, zakaria was trying to place the merits of islam above science, to me it is a sign of a clost jihadi

    Arun Shourie is a mild mannered intellectual who buttresses his arguments with solid facts. To you he is a terrorist. If you can, you and your ilk should answer him with a reasoned argument. Not with threats like to Mr Rushdie. You may be enamoured of the Quran, others are not.

    [Reply]

    Abu Ahmed Reply:

    Dr Zakaria did that, answering Shourie with a reasoned arguement in a book – only to be called a closet terrorist by Hindu extremist gangsters / bombers. Rushdie calls all religions a fiction – with that I have no problem – at least he is not calling Zakaria a terrorist.

    I have no problems whatsoever with APJ Abdul Kalam, Mohammed Rafi, Maulana Azad, etc. They are Arabic origin names. But I suspect you may have problems with Indian sounding names.

    @Azhar, I assumed people who have had the benefit of secular english education would have been able to unshakle themselves from the tyranny of “mob psychology” and reflect on issues around them as rational beings.
    Your putting this growth statistics is a clear pointer that you feel strong in a crowd and vapourize as an individual..There are millions of ants and insects in any wooded area, but few lions and tigers. The measure of any civilization or group today, is the number of Nobel prizes in science or number of patents that group is able to register annually. Right from Morrocco till Malayasia, one would require a very powerful microscope to find patents, if any, recorded annually.This comfort in a crowd is a pathetic mind-set that reflects Yasser Arafat’s famous quote to crush Israel: The Bomb and the Womb. For your kind information the largest number of muslim converts in the UK and USA are the prison inmates. not a bit surpriing, given the rewards promised in the “Holy BooK” for committing atrocites.

    For our citizens the only substance of value will always and only remain GOLD. An unreliable crooked business environment along with a horrendous vile downright corrupt untrustworthy political and administrative governance, our people can only fall back to the small gold reserves during the time of their hardship. It has served them well duriring all ages and all times. We know what is best for us.
    Mr Pramit you are an excellent economist but like most are incorrect about our national economy and what it will ever provide.
    For INDIA it is well said A GLORIOUS PAST, PRESENT UNCERTAIN, ALWAYS THE ILLUSION OF A SHINING FUTURE. The past is what can guide and Gold is and will always be the best for us.
    Trust yourself as an Indian more than you trust it’s economy.
