Uttar Pradesh has a large muslim population. Back in the 90’s, Muslims had a choice b/w the congress and the BJP, now there are other players, all vying for the all-important Muslim vote. The benefit that the congress had, before the BSP and SP, is never going to come back. The Muslims earlier, voted for the congress as a single voting block. Now, they have several choices. Now, the only way to attract muslim votes is to give them sops.

The recent decision to allow 4% reservation in the 27% quota for backward classes for Muslims is an example. They are trading votes for sops. Reservations will spoil Muslims and make them lazy. If you don’t have to work hard for something, you will not realize its value. This system of sops-for-votes will prove costly for the congress, BSP and SP. With a rapidly growing muslim population, even more reservation will be required next year for their votes. The BJP should use this opportunity and directly make a pitch to the Muslims, telling them why their reservation is bad for them, and how the congress is trying to buy their votes.

Let me start by saying that I am NOT a hindu extremist. The media has labelled anyone who criticizes MF Hussain- a Hindu extremist. I am proud of my religion. I CAN tolerate insults against my religion. But if the insult is out of hatred and only targeted to hinduism, I will speak out against it.

MF Hussain is one such person who hates Hindu’s. His paintings display a consistent bias against hindu’s. While muslim’s are painted as fully clothed, Hindu’s are painted as nude. Hindu godesses are shown engaging in sexual acts with animals. What is so great about it? I wonder what his daughter thinks about it. Any normal human would be disgusted by those paintings. What is so great about X rated paintings?

I know most of you are shocked by the title. As a hindu, thats the least I can say. His death has had the media singing praises about his greatness. Why isn’t this offensive to Hindu’s? The people who run the newspapers are Hindu’s.. whats wrong with them?

I feel sick by just describing the paintings. But you should know his paintings include: Nude brahmins, bare chested women in compromising positions, decapitated Mahatma gandhi along with naked Hitler… and lots more.

As a secular nation, we hindu’s go out of the way to make sure that we don’t hurt the sentiments of Muslims. The same should be expected of them. Secularism is not a one way street.

I watched the verdict on TV and here I have 2 clips that show the chaos:

Scenes like this best describe the image of india that foreigners have. And this is the image that we portray to the world, and we get angry if they point out. I can’t understand how, an event of such great importance, could be bungled.

And this is not something that happened overnight, we had enough time to prepare and organize, but nobody did it, or even if the event was planned, the plan was not adhered. What we saw on TV was disgusting.

These kinds of chaotic, unplanned scenes never happen in developed countries. And I’m not just talking about the west, I’m talking about singapore, malaysia. Those countries got independence at around the same time as us. So the argument “its just been 60 years” don’t hold. Its time we stopped making excuses and take responsibility.
