- All organised religions creates their set of fanatical followers who resort to violence and violation of human rights. But behind them are also politicians, bureaucrats and police who manipulate such violence for their own greed for power.
India's population has Hindus in majority and the religion of Hinduism has its set of fanatical groups like the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, Vishwa Hindu Parishad, Bajrang Dal and the Bharatiya Janata Party. But these receive subte or direct support from political parties such as Congress and the Nationalist Congress Party. On the other hand, political parties such as Samajwadi Party support the Muslim extremist groups in India. And in the fanaticism of so-called 'development' followers on the remote un-influential people of non-urban India ALL political parties, including all the communist parties, are the SAME.
Free India's 60 years history has seen shocking violence against Muslims many times and once (in 1984) against Sikhs. The world has, with some honorable exceptions like the European Union's 2002 express of distress at the mass murder of Muslims in Gujarat in February-March 2002, has kept silent.
In recent weeks, we have seen Christians being attacked (read here, here and here). Since most of the non-Hindu, non-Muslim, non-Jewish, non-Chinese/Korean/Japanese world is Christian, this has begun to rattle them (read here, here and here). India's Congress Party, that is notorious for manipulating every situation to its benefit, led by Sonia Gandhi and which has its people unelected member, Manmohan Singh, as India's Prime Minister, is also now beginning to take notice (read here and here), but only because of the world condemnation.
- During the Nazis' rule in Germany, during the 1930s and 1940s, there was a guy called Martin Niemoller (he was an early supporter of Hitler but later changed his stance), who said this about the goings-on in Germany at that time. It applies to all Hindu Indians in connection with the Nazification of India. Here is what he wrote:
- "In Germany, they came first for the Communists, And I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Communist;
- And then they came for the trade unionists, And I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist;
- And then they came for the Jews, And I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew;
- And then . . . they came for me . . . And by that time there was no one left to speak up."
