Muslims will not leave India, come what may: Owaisi

Hyderabad, Nov 24 (IANS) All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi on Tuesday said that the Muslims would not leave the country, come what may, and that they would continue to live here as “proud Indians”.

“Muslims will not succumb to dog whistle politics of the Sangh Parivar and other fascist forces but continue their democratic struggle for justice, due share and the rights guaranteed by the Constitution of the country,” the Lok Sabha member from Hyderabad told reporters here.

When asked for reaction on Bollywood actor Aamir Khan’s revelation on Monday that his wife asked if they should move out of the country due to security situation prevailing in the country, the AIMIM leader said, “I can’t speak for a film star. I can only speak as a proud Indian Muslim that I will never succumb to all these dog whistle politics of the Sangh Parivar and other fascist organisations.”

“They can’t create fear in our hearts and minds because this is our county. So long as life on earth survives, Muslims will live in India as proud Indians,” he added.

Owaisi said Indian Muslims would definitely struggle for their due share and rightful position, which no one could deny them since it was what the constitution guarantees.

“We are Indians not only by birth but by choice. We have seen many adversities, many riots; thousands of lives were lost. We have also seen destruction of Babri Masjid,” he said.

Owaisi said grievances of Indian Muslims had always been with parties in power as they did not give them the rights the Constitution guaranteed. “Still this is our country. We will continue to fight. We will continue to struggle and definitely get our due share and our position,” he added.

The AIMIM leader said Muslims would not disappoint great freedom fighters who dreamt of Muslims living in the country as proud Indians.

  1. This is a very scary situation. The whole world seems to be fed up and finally mobilizing against one group. The civilized world is in no mood for further bloodshed of innocent civilians in the hands of ‘death cult’.

    Who do we blame for this situation? Well, there are many parties and reasons for sure. However, most of the blame should and will go to crony-secular and Regressive Left who failed to their job and allowed this to happen. As I have stated many times on this forum, right-wing organizations like RSS, PEGIDA, Tea Party, EDL etc are all natural reaction to out-of-control radical elements encouraged by crony secular groups.

    History has shown repeatedly that Far-right wings are not good for democracy and progress. However, they will continue to win popular imagination as Secular, Progressive groups fail to do their jobs and act like apologists for medieval barbarians. I have a feeling that something really bad is going to happen if this trend continues.

      Sir,

      I condemn every single act of violence, whatever the identity of the perpetrators, whatever the identity of the victims, whatever the ideology or motive of the perpetrators, religious, non-religious, atheistic or nationalistic, whatever the methodology used, whatever the place and whatever the time. In my view every single death of an innocent is equally condemnable, and the condemnation of every category of violence has to be proportionate to the magnitude of violence. I am with all those who are ready to accept this, but if people insist only on selective condemnation based on political considerations, I am not going to support it. And if the magnitude of violence is made the criterion, I assure you that West at the global level and certain non-Muslim elements in India will have to be condemned hundreds, even thousands of times more than Muslims. Al-Qaeda allegedly killed around 6000 people including 3000 in New York. Other terror groups may have killed at the most tens of thousands. America and its Western allies have killed at least 2 million innocent Muslims in wars against Iraq and Afghanistan and in exported insurgencies in Libya, Syria and Egypt. Do the Muslim innocents deserve lesser sympathy than Western? Are they any less human? And if we examine the role of Big Powers in the wars and civil wars in the last century, these consumed 180 million lives, an overwhelming majority being at the hands of these very big powers who claim to be the champions of peace.

      Radical West much more dangerous than Radical Islam

      India too uses its own terminologies in describing various forms of violence. While any terrorism related to Muslims is highlighted, the terrorism related to other ideologies is hardly discussed. Only a couple of days earlier, a BJP leader said that “99 pc terrorists are Muslims”. I had heard a similar remark in a TV debate with Mr Sonkar Shastri. And I told him that the truth is that the overwhelming majority of Indian terrorism over the years has been linked to non-Muslims. As I have quoted statistics in several articles, more than 95 pc of terrorism related deaths in India in recent years have been caused by Hindu terrorists, not Muslim terrorists. Out of more than 35000 terrorist related deaths in India in last 30 years, more than 33000 are by Hindu terrorists (Naxalites, Ulfa, Bodo, Maoists, and Sikhs). Those allegedly by Muslims relate to not more than 1500. They will always talk of the deaths of few Brahmins in Kashmir (which was rightly condemned by all Muslim organisations) but not about 40000 Kashmiri innocents killed by the armed forces. I condemn the killing of Kashmiri Pandits — their number varies from 30-300, according to different official and unofficial estimates — but I cannot do justice if at the same time I do not condemn the killers of innocent Kashmiri (Muslims).
      I must clarify here that when I use “Hindu Terrorism”, it means a link with the Hindu community, not Hindu religion. I firmly believe that terrorism cannot be acceptable to any religion. Even if certain terrorists start describing their acts as religious in hope of attracting more people, it does not prove their case. To call ISIS Islamic is an insult to Islam, a religion that provides the most comprehensive framework of “peace” including all its aspects.
      Radicalisation of West is visible in every single institution, every single practice and every single war or civil war the world has been witnessing in the last century.
      Out of more than 50 Muslim countries, “terrorism”, the kind of violence West loathes, has affected less than a dozen countries, 5-6 in a major way. Indonesia, Malaysia, the erstwhile Soviet Union countries like Azerbaijan, and Uzbekistan, Turkey, Bangladesh, Indonesia, and many other countries have none or a few incidents of terrorism. Much bigger kinds of terrorism has been witnessed by Sri Lanka in the last 3 decades (resulting in death of more than one hundred thousand), and Indian terrorism is mainly a non-Muslim phenomenon involving Naxalites, Ulfa, Bodos, Sikhs, Tamils and Maoists, most of them being born as Hindus.
      It can be easily seen that terrorism in Muslim countries is born out of anger against the West, which has continuously tried to keep its puppets in power in those countries against the wishes of the people. Terrorism has obviously been directly proportional to the Western involvement.

      Jai hind

    • Mr. Pai, do you know when RSS was started in India? Godse was an RSS person who killed
      Gandhiji and the BJP is deliberately closing the eyes while the killer Godse is being elevated as a national hero and patron of Hinduism. So he was a right wing person!

    • Original R.Pai – SAYS, “History has shown repeatedly that right wings are not good for democracy and progress.” ……..I

      He further says, “As I have stated many times on this forum, right-wing organizations like RSS, PEGIDA, Tea Party, EDL etc….” ……II

      HE ADMITS IN STATEMENT- II, THAT RSS IS A RIGHT WING ORGANISATION.
      HE ADMITS IN STATEMENT- I, THAT “right wings are not good for democracy and progress.”

      THEREFORE, BY I AND II ABOVE: HE SAYS, “RSS is not good for democracy and progress.”

      IT IS A SELF GOAL BY RSS PAI! HE ADMITS, “RSS IS A RIGHT WING ORGANISATION AND IT IS NOT GOOD FOR DEMOCRACY AND PROGRESS!” LOL.

      WHAT ELSE ANYBODY WANTS AS A PROOF TO THE FACT THAT RSS IS NOT GOOD FOR DEMOCRACY AND PROGRESS?

      INDIA HAS A GOVERNMENT WHICH IS NOT GOOD FOR DEMOCRACY AND PROGRESS!!!

  2. Oye owasi, if you are not leaving this country then don’t spoil the peace of this country by saying rights, justice etc etc. what more you want to enjoy in this country? stop all this nonsense and let us live peacefully. first leave your communal agenda of thinking only about your community and think wide. first give 50% reservation to hindus in your party and make them MLA’s. stop pointing at patriotic Hindu organization RSS

    • Anil: “first give 50% reservation to hindus in your party and make them MLA’s. stop pointing at patriotic Hindu organization RSS”

      In that case why the BJP has given far less than 1% membership to the Muslims?

      WHY EACH AND EVERY MUSLIM MINISTER IN MODI GOVERNMENT AND PREVIOUS VAJAPAYEE GOVERNMENTS WERE “LOVE JEHADIS”? IS THERE NO OTHER MUSLIM WHO IS NOT A”LOVE JEHADI” AND WHO DID NOT CONVERT HINDU GIRLS TO ISLAM TO MARRY THEM?
