i do think they have been unfairly targetted at times, because i feel that india belongs to muslims, sikhs, christians and all other relgions as much as it does to hindus. they too must have strong patriotic feelings towards india otherwise they wouldn't all be there, sure there must be the odd cases that r there for economic reasons, but i think once u stay in a country u get attached to a country n u would not do anything to harm its system or environment. I kno i am making a general statement, but i am saying this for the majority of indians. there r the odd bad apples in every religion n community, so blame an entire religion or community is completely wrong, and in my opinion every cruel

yes i agree there r a few of them that have been involved, but we shld remeber that these bombers r not the actual master minds. these are the common citizens who have been plagued by the normal problems of life like unemployement n ethnocentrism from time to time, n these terrorist organization use these problems of their life in such a way as to brain wash them into believeing their terrorist cause... n believe me not all of these ppl r neccessarily evil, they might just be misguided... i agree we shld not brush it under the carpet... n i wish that instead of playing the "who dunnit" game government n other well meaning insitution shld try to find these individuals who might be prone to becoming terrorists n show them the right way. N i hope that the indian muslims don't take it in the wrong way, i kno it can be very frustrating when the whole world is pointing a finger at u, but instead of resolving these things with violence, which would just enforce a negative view abt them, they shld proceed with peace... when i say peace i dun mean they shld be weak n just sit bak n take everything the world dishes out to them, but lets not forget that even gandhiji helped in getting freedom in a non violent way.... so for a long term solution take a peaceful stand Smile

Are the Indian Muslims being targetted?

When the bombers stay within us, where do they stay? Shouldnt the Ghetto's where they stay be targetted so more dont die in the next attack? In General the muslims are not targetted, A certain area's get targetted and there is a reason for that. Atleast in Maharashra the same area's are always the hotbed's. The muslim leaders are trying to sweep the issue under the rug, They have a problem with certain section of the community and if they really are the leaders of the community they should be able to weed out components who provide aid and comfort to the bombers and foreign elements residing amongst them. If they are not able to, they should just shut up and let the police deal with it and stay out of their way.

In fact, we are too much pro-minority in the country today, The majority cares far too much of the minority in the country, and less about the majority and the country as a whole. At some point this is going to come back to haunt the majority.

I think the Indian muslims are now in a defensive mode...and when u are in that mode you basically cease looking at the real issues...

And our poilitical parties have had a past history of siding with the minorities just for the their vote there is a dalit bank and a muslim bank and so on
Sikh extremism was the result of Indira Gandhi helping bhindra wala to become so powerful...If the Indian politicians keep shielding the muslims of the other minorities they will be doing them long term harm...the real issues of unemployment, illiteracy, women rights are being swept under the carpet and these core issues will keep marginalising the communities and veering them towards options like terrorisms..

The need of the day is moderate Muslim leaders who can bring in positive reforms into the lives of their people..

Are the Indian Muslims being targeted after every terrorist attack,was the topic of the debate in NDTV,....1)The panel comprised of Mr.Salman Khurshid, a  senior congress leader 2),The elader of the "Muslim party" of Uttar Pradesh,and 3)a Muslim leader from Hyderabad and the senior journalist of Hindustan Times

The debate in a gist...All three muslim leaders SWEARED that NO INDIAN MUSLIM would be a "gaddar"(traitor)....They went on record to hammer this point,that NO INDIAN MUSLIM WOULD JOIN HANDS WITH MILITANT ORGANIZATIONS LIKE THE AL-QAEDA AND LeT"....Their gripe was that the indian muslims were being made the scapegoat for every blast.....They did accept that there are fringe elements in every nation and every caste,but completely tarring all Indian muslims black wouldnt do.....

They strongly feel,and went on reiterating the fact that almost all theose who are involved with the blasts are across the border radical elements,and not Indians......The point about the entire global jihadi phenomenon being imported into India was discussed,and the leaders again asseverated  that "Indian muslims wouldnt go the extremist way"....They vehemently sweared by the fact that NO INDIAN MUSLIM would embrace the jihadi movement

The question about the Muslims in india getting infuriated with the recent turnout of events in Lebanon was also raised,and the leaders  went on to state that they voice their opinions about lebanon and iraq as citizens of a democracy,and not as Muslims.....They said that hte problems the Muslims face is poverty and hunger,and they as leaders would only fight for the upliftment of muslims,they would fight against the system,but not the country.....Mr.Salman recognized poverty and unemployment as national issues,and not just issues which  the muslim community faces......

One of the leader did admit that poverty is the main reason for the youth's taking up extremism,but then again went on to say that Its just the lunatic fringe elements who are usually NOT CITIZENS OF THE COUNTRY.......One of the audience said that whenever there is a blast,he has to go through the same traume again..i.e he has to reiterate that he has nothing to do with the blasts,and that he is a citizen of the country and wouldnt go against it..They even pinpointed that during the blasts,the indians and muslims were united as INDIANS,and such unity can be seen only in IndiaClapThumbs Up

One of the leaders asserted,that NO INDIAN MUSLIM  is/would be a part of the Al Qaeda network in India....They stated that the indian muslims have nothing to do with the Al-Qaeda,but they are being unfairly targeted..One of the leaders said that the introduction of the quota system in hyderabad has proved to be fruitful,as more Muslim students get employment and thus would be instrumental in the alleviation of poverty....Indians must  unite and eradicate terrorism..The onus must not be only on the muslims,it must be on everyone..The police was being unfair,and apparently catechize the Muslims,for no fault of theirs......Ouch


Your views on the comments of the leaders,and about whether Muslims are being unfairly targetted in IndiaSmile





just as much is the fact that not all muslims are terrorists its also a fact that all teh terrorists so far have been muslims... so its difficult to separate out the chaff... and there is going to be stereo-typing and bad feelings amongst muslims... but thats sad... without muslims indian culture will fall short.. muslims adorn indian culture and its better they pull out the miscreants before the situation worsens.....Smile
