              What’s happening in our country these days? Communal riots everywhere. Why in Assam, why in Bareily, why in Bangalore, why in Mumbai? Even Amar Jawan Jyoti lost its respect. Why? Why are Indians from North-East are being threatened that they are fleeing cities like Pune, Bangalore, Hydrabad? Even Buddha statue in Lucknow was not spared apart. Why?
             It’s high time now. Think. Communal violence is raising its head again. And this time, I suppose it’s even worse than Babri Masjid controversy of early 90s.
             And what the government is doing? They are trying to evade taking responsibility of this chaos by blaming Pakistan. Is Pakistan really responsible for this? Think..!
             In contrast, the false visuals of Muslims being tortured and killed in Assam and Myanmar are the crop of Pakistan and spread across India through social networking.
             They may be true. But the real question is: Do that justifies the public rape of lady constables, to harm the Amar Jawan Jyoti, mercilessly attacking people from North-East? Think..!
             My Muslim brothers, you are living in a secular country. INDIA..! Why are you all getting so much hyper over the harassment of Muslims in Myanmar? Where was every concerned soul when Buddhist girl was being raped? When her people were killed?
             Instead, why not protesting against miseries of Muslims in Syria?  Why not saying anything against the slaughtering of Shias in Pakistan? Why is Kasaab still alive? Why certain Muslim NGOs are supporting him? Why Muslims had demonstrated against the execution of Osama-Bin-Laden? Wasn’t he an international terrorist?
             The point of even more concern is that, is there any shortage of real problems that Muslims face in India, while they remain one of the most economically marginalised sections of the society?
             There is no shortage of blindly Hindu supporting wings and groups in India and they are now shouting out loud that Muslims are more concerned about their religion than the country. The followers of hatred of all communities sow thorns and poor innocent people become victims.
              Muslim leaders have always provoked Indian Muslims to stand solidarity with world-wide Muslims. Okay, it’s perfectly fine. But when you keep doing this, and keep silent when other communities face the same harassment, then that’s not done. You are truly portraying yourself as communal.
              And also it is incorrect to keep on repeating that Islam is in danger. It’s almost the greatest religion of the whole world. Probably, not a single country in the whole world is there where the population has actually declined. And a sad fact has come to front that a huge number of Muslims are being killed over the matters of faith and religion by their own fellow Muslims.
            It’s all the dirty politics, the fact being that so called secular parties is more eager in continuing the exploitation of Muslims as vote-banks. And the so-called Muslim leaders continue to fill Indian Muslims as being separate and portraying them as victims. Now Indian Muslims should say a stern NO to these purveyors of victimhood.
            I strongly believe that these so-called Muslim leaders should pay more attention to issues which are really meant to be concerned about like education, employment, economic security, and health and sanitary.
              I agree to the fact that in India, all the marginalised and weaker sections are treated badly, whether it be Muslims, Dalits, Tribals or poor farmers. So my Muslim brothers, please don’t fall prey to this wrong propaganda that only Muslims are being discriminated. The answer to your burning questions can only be Empowerment. And empowerment can only be brought through EDUCATION. South Indian Muslims are better than North Indian ones, financially, just because of this reason only. Imagine a Muslim revolution in demand of better educational facilities. Wouldn’t that be a sight?
             My dear Muslim brothers, OUR India is an ever embracing, though ofcourse, with its woes. So when you fight, then also fight for the REAL causes of concern like poverty, illiteracy, unemployment etc, and also for the same, get unite with other weaker and marginalised sections and make a real common front rather than a religious front that spreads aggressive threats. It’s now time to decide where you are and where you want to go.
 With love and regards to my Muslim brothers
From the pen of a Secular Indian.
Love you all..!
