Right wing groups in India keep mum about government’s subsidy for Hindu pilgrims but makes Hajj subsidy a controversial word. Right wing groups boasts about subsidy given to Muslim pilgrims but the Hindu nationalist BJP didn’t abolish Hajj subsidy when it was the ruling party in 1996-7 and 1998-2004 respectively.
The Hindu population has faced persecution in Pakistan ever since 1947, but it didn’t vanish – it came home.

With the escalation of Hindu-Muslim tension in India, Hindutva ideologues have started to brainwash Indian Hindus by trying to instill in them a sort of existential dilemma. They reason that Islamist Jihad in India will result in a situation where no Hindus will be left to live in Bharat. In order to substantiate their claim, they cite the example of Muslim majority Pakistan and Muslim majority Kashmir. When Pakistan came into being in 1947, the Hindu population of the state ran in double digits (percentage wise) but gradually this figure has descended to a percentage or two. Similarly, the ethnic cleansing of Kashmiri Pandits from the Valley has led to over 90% of the Kashmiri Pandits being forced out of their homes. Islamophobic intellectuals in India have stated that these warnings should not be taken lightly by the Hindus as Muslims are on a mission to convert India into Darul Islam. I wonder whether these academicians really understand the meaning of the term Darul Islam (Abode of Peace) which has been used in the Quran to describe heaven and not some Muslim majority country ruled by the Sharia as some Islamophobes would have us to believe.

Indian Muslims are always questioned about their patriotism even when Indian Muslims sacrificed their lives for India. But Sanghis turns a blind eye all those Hindus arrested for spying for Pakistan. Hope they will storm the streets to condemn Hindu arrested for anti national activities just as they ask Muslims to protest against terrorism 24/7. Recently, 11 Hindus were arrested for spying for Pakistan, one among them was a BJP worker, however this is not the only case where Hindus have been arrested for betraying “Bharat Mata” there have been numerous cases of Hindus leaking sensitive information to Pakistan and other countries and betraying the homeland.
This article is a response to the critics who misquote the following Hadith
Narrated ‘Aisha: The things which annual prayer were mentioned before me (and those were): a dog, a donkey and a woman. I said, “You have compared us (women) to donkeys and dogs. By Allah! I saw the Prophet praying while I used to lie in (my) bed between him and the Qibla. Whenever I was in need of something, I disliked to sit and trouble the Prophet. So, I would slip away by the side of his feet.”

The article first brings up hadiths trying to prove Muhammad drank wine:They said:
“Sahih Muslim: “Drinks, Drinking wine and fermentation”
Narrated by Gaber bin Abdullah:
We were with the messenger of Allah, PBUH and he asked for a drink. One of his men said: “Oh Messenger of Allah, Can we offer you wine to drink?” He said Yes. He (Gaber) went out looking for the drink and came back with a cup of wine. The messenger (Peace Be Upon him) asked, “Have you covered it with a twig in a transverse manner” He (Gaber) said, “Yes” and he (Muhammad) drank. Sahih Muslim – Hadith #3753
