What the reddy brothers are doing is wrong, no doubt about that. Both BJP and Congress are corrupt. However,the media critisizes the BJP more than the congress. Indian media is biased.

HD Kumaraswamy also owns lots and lots of land here in Bangalore. Why not mention that? His dad, Devegowda, was forced to step down from the post of PM because he is corrupt. The JD(S) and congress are no less corrupt than any other party. I demand fair reporting.

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.

Media coverage of baba ramdev’s protest and UPA’s response indicate one thing: They associate color saffron with hindu extremism.

Hindu’s are peaceful people. We never attacked or invaded any country for centuries. In fact we are so good that we welcomed our enemies (mughals and british). That is an undisputable fact.

So why is the UPA screaming hindu terror and invoking the name of RSS?
The only reason I can think of is that they are trying to spoil the name of ramdev. They can’t stand the color saffron and anything associated with it. To them, saffron=extremism.

The media, which is supposed to be neutral, is taking sides. Articles in english language newspapers have a subtle anti-ramdev bias.

The media has to stop taking sides. They are trying to mislead people.

Shahid afridi, a muslim, had the following to say about “indian people” (read: Hindu’s) :

Interviewer: We had a very warm welcome in India. Indians treated us very well. What do you think about them?

Afridi: “To be honest, in my opinion, if I have to tell the truth, they (Indians) will never have hearts like Muslims and Pakistanis. I don’t think they have the large and clean hearts that Allah has given us”

hmm…try telling that to the muslims in the Indian team. I can’t believe that the ordinary pakistani buys this kind of crap. They obviously don’t know that India has had muslim presidents. On the other side of the fence, hindu’s of pakistan are hardly visible and don’t seem to be treated well, if reports by the BBC are true. Here, in India, muslims are flourishing. So much so that they will become the majority due to their high birth rates. Its going to happen, no doubt about that. I am not taking sides here. Its just a fact. If dhoni had said something like that, do you think he would be immediately removed. Afridi’s statements will have adverse effects on pakistan’s hindu’s, have you thought about that?

Afridi, is ofcourse, not oblivious to this fact. He has toured India many times to know that the hate-hindu propaganda he was fed in his young age is false. Every pakistani, by now, is well aware of the fact that Hindu’s are good, tolerant people and that India has a sizeable, influential muslim minority. More like the second biggest majority. Hindu doctors treat sick pakistani kids for free, as a sign of goodwill. We PAY pakistani players to play in the IPL. We invite pakistani player to bollywood events. Afridi, being a self confessed SRK fan, should know it. Shoaib akhtar is a fan of the big 3 khans of bollywood. The 3 khans have millions of Hindu fans and they have near-monopoly of bollywood. Something like that happening in pakistan is unimaginable.

Secularism is not a one way street. It should be reciprocated by pakistan. The secularism that pakistan’s politicians talk about when they are abroad is just a word with no meaning. This religious extremism which exists in pakistan, is causing more harm to themselves than anybody else. Just days ago, a bomb ripped through a sufi shrine in pakistan. Suspects are the taliban, who are intolerant to sufi’s. Both are muslims.

I think its high time the pakistani politicians and politicians-in-waiting like afridi realize their mistake and stop advocating hate and intolerance. Don’t be a victim of your own making.
