फतवा और मीडिया प्रोपगंडा (ज़रूर पढ़ें)

ब्लॉग: अगर बाबा रामदेव भी टोपी पहेन कर कुछ बोल दें तो मीडिया उसे फतवा बना देगी!

पिछले कुछ समय से अगर आप कोई न्यूज़ चैनल लगाएं। तो ये तो हो ही नही सकता के आप तलाक़, अज़ान, फ़त्वा जैसे शब्दों को न सुनें। इतने शब्द तो ETV उर्दू, मुंसिफ और ZEE सलाम जैसे “टोकन मुस्लिम” चैनेलों पर भी सुनने को नही मिलते हैं। मीडिया में रोज़ किसी न किसी विषय पर डिबेट होती है।

फतवा उस राय को कहा जाता है जो मुफ़्ती सवाल पूछे जाने पर देता है। फतवा कुरान, हदीस और इस्लामी किताबो की रौशनी में दिया जाता है। कोई मौलाना, आलिम या इस्लामी स्कॉलर भी फतवा नही दे सकता। अभी कुछ ही दिनों पहले असम के मुस्लिमो द्वारा एक म्यूजिक कंसर्ट के खिलाफ की गयी अपील को फतवा बता कर मीडिया ने काफी हंगामा खड़ा कर दिया था। India Today ने तो उसे आतंकवाद से भी जोड़ दिया था। बाद में सच्चाई सामने आने के बाद NDTV को छोड़ के किसी भी न्यूज़ चैनल या पत्रकार ने माफ़ी नही मांगी।

Hinduism in World’s Largest Muslim Majority Country

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.

Hindus spying for Pakistan

By Sulaiman Razvi

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.

Madrasas in India: A Historical Perspective

History of the madrasas in India goes back to the advent of Muslims to the subcontinent. They played an important role in the eco-cultural life of the Muslim society. In the medieval India, they used to provide with the manpower to the government to run its huge and vast machinery. A chain of these madrasas were spread in the length and breadth of the country. They were instrumental in imparting education to the masses. They were marked with the secularism in their nature. This, including with other characteristics of the madrasas, attracted a good crowd of the children even from the non-Muslim majority. This situation continued up till late 19th century. The luminaries like Raja Ram Mohan Roy, Dr.Rajendra Prasad and Dr.Sachdanand Sinha and thousands of others got their elementary education in madrsas.
