Whilst India is being inundated with Terror strikes almost every day, from North to South and from East to West, it beseeches the attention of common citizens to ponder with growing concern as to why this alarming increase. Yes, every citizen must ponder over it. The drastic increase in terror activities in India is very pertinent to the origin, sustenance and maintenance of terror activities in States where Muslim population has predominantly ballooned. Eg. Kerala, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Andhra, Telangana, West Bengal and UP to name a few. While the pseudo-liberal intellectuals and wine drinking elite might consider these outrageously discriminative facts, figures and incidences beg to reflect to the contrary. The complicity of the Congress Party and the various Governments it controlled around the country provided infallible armor for the growth of these radical elements – notwithstanding the fact that Congress have wedded with such elements for vote bank politics. With no formidable political alternative available, and with emerging regional political parties too depending on vote bank politics for the sake of power, India bled terribly during the major part of its 70 years’ independence. The Hindus, in numeric Majority, stood shamelessly divided under a pseudo-secular sentiment. Islam and Christianity, in numeric Minority, united formidably to wean away rights and privileges that should have been one and for all citizens of the country. The Constitution of India, a holy book, was abusively amended to blossom privileges granted to these two religions in the name of Minority while shriveling the privileges of Hindus, being Majority. It was a defined, connived and orchestrated process of Democratic Anarchy, thanks to our revered and celebrated forefathers and subsequent governors of the Nation, namely the Congress!
As radicalism burgeoned, initially as a political outfit and subsequently mushrooming into innumerable communal fringe elements that solely propagated Islamic Jihad, the establishment deliberately slept over it despite innumerable evidences to act upon. And this is precisely where, taking advantage of the political promiscuity, Jihadi outfits went literally on a barrage in States like Kerala, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Andhra, Telangana, West Bengal, UP so on and so forth. Links were established with terror groups outside the country and in no negligent terms with terror groups elsewhere within the country with religion as a camouflage and politics as a disguise. Over a period of time, the Islamists had extensively established their network in terms of manpower deployment, finance, events management and terror strikes. The cadres comprised of distorted radical Islamic youths, from all strata of Muslim society, mostly from Kerala and Karnataka, brainwashed by fourteen hundred year old doctrine that is at best a unproven compilation of theocratic rubbish and at worst a collection of sinister evil.
Kerala had all along been a suitable hub for the growth of terror. Its logistical advantage, its vast Muslim population – roughly 29% at this point in time, every household having at least one member living/working in the middle east and of course influence of their archaic dogma, Substantial nurturing of youths towards a violent narrative was unleashed in the State with the assistance of unchecked and unaudited foreign fund inflows which essentially changed the culturally predominant Hindu geographical landscape to an explosion of crudely designed Mosques which now outnumber traditional tea shops, Madrasas, Muslim aided schools and colleges and rampant land acquisitions. A mere 29% of the State’s Muslim population governs 55% of the entire State’s natural wealth, 35% of immovable assets and nearly 51% of all large scale businesses. The money that pours in from its Middle East sources is in multiple millions of dollars every day.
What is amazingly baffling is the fact that majority of the Kerala Muslims or ‘Kakas’ as they are called come from the unskilled lower labor category working basically as coffee/tea boys, paper vendors, vegetable vendors, fish sellers, supermarket salesmen etc. However, they are strictly instructed through their religious houses and umpteen Muslim social welfare organizations to generously donate a percentage of their monthly earnings to a central fund collecting unit, generally located in a Mosque that eventually carts it across to various State units in India for funding of Terror activities under the guise of aiding orphanages, madrasas, hospitals, old age homes, assisting the underprivileged et al. Their respective Mosques remind them every Friday during prayers not to forget their donation and any omission, commission or default is severely chided.
This enormous amount of money that flows into the private coffers are neither investigated for its source or its intent. All Agencies, both State and Central and those directly under Home Ministry, despite being aware of this large inflow of money into the country do not investigate or even question the inflow by clandestine means. There is no investigation to the umpteen large scale business houses that mushroom, out of nowhere, under the ownership of a Muslim. No investigation is carried out on a spontaneous deal where large amount of land costing crores are realized by a Muslim. No investigation is done when huge multi-story buildings spring up as residential complexes around the State is owned by a Muslim. No investigation is done when Mosques spring up in every nook and corner of the State at an alarming pace. It is envisaged that there are approximately 2000 big, small and prayer worthy Mosques in this small State – close to half of them necking the skies from 1970 onwards. Unfortunately, there exists no documental proof to authenticate this with the State or Central Government’s concerned department.
Further, No investigations are carried out when a once drastically poor Muslim suddenly flashes riches, owns estates, land, business houses, mansions etc. When it is absolutely known that the average salary of a Gulf Muslim is not more than Rs.15,000/- a month, it does not demand logic to see reason. Of course there are the very rich Gulf Muslims too but they do not add up to the immense movable and immovable wealth the common Muslims, utterly impoverished not so long a period ago, now own in their respective States, particularly Kerala.
Historically, Kerala had a legacy of communal flare ups, thanks to Tippu Sultan. He, true to the volatile 109 verses in the Koran that commanded hate, murder and terror against all human beings who refuse to submit or convert to Islam, went on a rampage in Kerala and Karnataka beheading almost all Hindu men, raping their women, converting their children and thus giving birth to a Muslim dominated district in Malappuram in Kerala and in a large area of South Karnataka. In 1921, present day Malappuram district witnessed a devastating revolt and massacre known as the “Moplah rebellions” where Muslims went berserk (said to be with the help of the British as part of their divide and rule policy) killing lakhs of innocent Hindus overnight with a view to make it a Muslim majority state. They succeeded. Presently, a large number of houses and Mosques bear visual resemblance to the rich Hindu architectural beauty – a deliberate omission by the Muslims for the sake of benign provocation. When a large section of the Muslim community in the State continue to go about with barbaric acts of violence like chopping of hands and legs, while their Imams becomes the caretakers of hoarded weapons in Mosques, when their radical elements brave the public with atrocious acts and speeches, when the community at large demands Friday to be declared a holiday and when the core educational system is modified to suit a Muslim perspective – the elected establishment and the people who voted them into power blink the other way – and the Hindus themselves shamefully scatter and shelter under a political party that preaches vote bank politics.
The advent of the rise of the Bhatkal brothers in Karnataka and the likes of radicalists like Abdul Nasser Madani, T.Nazeer, Abdul Jabbar, P.Sabir, M. Buhari, M. Fayaz, M. Fayees, K. Abdul Raheem, Muhammed Yasin so on and so forth are a direct consequence of the disunity amongst Hindus and the vote bank politics of the Communist Leftists and Congress Parties. Bountiful wealth along with political patronage gave the Muslims a rejuvenated energy to syndicate their radical religious faith into a formidable political party, the Muslim League. Under this flagship they began all kinds of anti-national activities, from hosting the Pakistani flag over Kozhikode Airport to exporting terror in Kashmir, Gujarat, Hyderabad and Coimbatore to name a few. In the recent years the Muslim and Christian political groups have been putting various pressures upon all the other political parties in Kerala to fulfil their goal for ethnic cleansing of Hindus. Newly built ‘Kerala Religious Police” a Muslim fanatic wing, Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI), the Islamic Sevak Sangh (ISS), Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) are some of the radical platforms floated by the Islamists of Kerala with a defined Jihadi road map were inculcated. A newly formed National Democratic Front (NDF), a reorganized alternative to ISS and SIMI which was banned have masterminded communal violence, murders and conversions in recent years with the Love Jihad emerging as the latest tool in their armor.
The export of terror from the State of Kerala has reached alarming proportions while the establishment has turned to look the other way. At this point, while writing this article, there are 33 youths disappeared from Kerala and joined ISIS out of a total of 200 from pan India The Kerala terror angle should be intrinsically and drastically investigated not just limiting to Malappuram alone, but to Calicut, Kannur and Kasargod as well where the Islamists have converted it into strong holds. But when vote bank politics takes precedence over national security, when a majority nation is held to ransom by a mere 17% minority, what better one can expect other than but Terror.
That the BJP, in 2014, under a charismatic leader like Shri. Narendra Modi emerged into being a national force shattering all previous political history is a huge sigh of relief for the Hindus of India. Being a man of few words but more deeds, the results are there for all to see. Though not enough, there is a comprehensive shackle imposed upon the hitherto free for all radical agencies. Money inflow, their main oxygen, has been curtailed to a large extent. Arrests and reprimands are occurring at an unprecedented pace. Most of the radicals are on the run or have gone under cover. All the intelligence agencies have found renewed enthusiasm in safeguarding national security under the Modi Government, thanks to removal of all red tapes inherent. More needs to be done – but yes – the Hindus can hope for some recourse. But if they don’t unite formidably with all their diversity, they themselves stand to lose. Meantime, let us dwell with content in this new found hope called Modi!
About Author – Prashanth is NRI who keenly watches and follows anything that relates to hismother country – India. Born a Hindu, he was raised with values that were largely moderate, inclusive and reverent. Through hisschool and college days he was a ABVP activist – but in the most virtuous sense. A shift from this perspective to essentially a more radical one took place during his NRI days while observing helplessly the outbreak of minority appeasement and vote bank politics actuated by the pseudo-liberal-secularists and the deceiving News Traders or Presstitutes as they are rightly called now. While he is respectful of the holy concept – “Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam” (the whole world is a family) – as written in the Maha Upanishad and inscribed at the entrance hall of our Parliament, hisconscience does not tolerate anymore the rigorous efforts connived by other religious groups and political parties, for a probable extermination of the wisdom and values of Hinduism he grew up with!
