Mohsina Kidwai's dilemma

Mohsina Kidwai's dilemma

Dr Mrs Hilda Raja,

It is very strange for the Congress General Secretary Mohsina Kidwai to state that for the first time in her 48 years of public life the present discourse on terror, linking it to religion, 'has made me feel like a Muslim'. Kidwai should turn the search light into the party to which she belongs and find why such a piquant situation has risen. It is her party which progessively under 'inclusive' development initiated a whole gamut of divisive programs: separate budget for the Muslims, a ministry for the Minorities, a survey on the status of the Muslims, an army head count of the Muslims, separate Madrassas with the taxpayers money for the Muslim children, its own Personal laws, the Haj subsidy on the taxpayers money to guarantee the salvation of the Muslims etc. To top it all an unscientific, unconstitutional Sanchar report to identify the Muslims as the lowest in the economic and social rungs of society to justify the special treatment to pull them out of the mire in which they are.

One would understand if the focus was on the poorest of the poor irrespective of religion but why should a religion be the criterion of the respondents? For all those appeasement strategies religion can be used and is valid-but when it comes to terror then one must rise above normal human understanding and stand by her side/and the UPA leaders and accept the theory that terror has no religion. Can Kidwai just tell the ordinary people why the terrorists are all from her community? .She a leader with a public service record of 48 years is answerable - so is her leader Mrs Sonia Gandhi. One cannot be selective.

Again when some goons attack Christians, damage the Christian churches why point out at the Hindutuva-call it the saffron brigade and blame those with such a religious ideology? According to her and the UPA's theory terrorism has no religion - they must be goons, mad men. We are not allowed to forget that Muslims must be given a preferential treatment - but when they are engaged in terrorism we are told not to call them Muslims for Islam is one of peace and love. All the religions stand for peace and love-so we are told.

Only that today is in the name of religions innocent blood is shed. It is not only the attack on Christians which are 'acts of shame' but the serial blasts-the continuous killing of innocent people attending to their daily business of life, the spilling of blood on our streets and roads are all heinous and acts of shame. Jammu and Kashmir is a singular case-it was on the basis of a religious identity that ethnic cleansing was undertaken. Where were the 'secular' leaders then?

The Prime Minister and Mrs Sonia Gandhi should look back at the aftermath of the assassination of Mrs Indira Gandhi.Then the Congress went raving and raging and indulging in a genocide pogrom butchering thousands of Sikhs. Where the 'secular' leaders were then and where was Mohsina Kidwai? Rajiv Gandhi even justified the genocide. Should we then think that today suddenly the Congress leaders are enlightened?

The Congress party is the fountain head of communalism, it has not abetted but vigorously promoted communalism. For selfish political gains it created vote bank in the name of religion. It is time for persons like Mohsina Kidwai and the party to which she belongs to accept this harsh reality.
