Letter To The Editor – India Still A Secular State – Daily Notable
Letter to the Editor Daily Notable
India which was once considered as the top secular state is no longer secular and is ruled by a leader of fascist mindset. Rise of fascist organizations such as RSS in government ranks is a proof that India is no more a secular state. RSS is the same organization whose member assassinated Gandhi, who was a symbol of India’s secularism.
Minorities in India are being oppressed that is the reason there are separatist movements going on in minority states like Kashmir, Punjab, Gujrat, and Nagaland.
BJP is considered as a political wing of RSS
Indian ruling party BJP is considered as a political wing of RSS. The current prime minister of India Narendra Modi is a lifelong member of RSS. In the campaign of General elections 2019, the BJP leader Ranjeet Bahadur Srivastava said that”
Vote for BJP if you want to destroy Muslims” he furthermore said that ‘in the past five years, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has made attempts to break the morals of the Muslims vote for the PM Modi if you want to destroy the breed of Muslims.’
He also said that ‘after elections, the party will bring machines from china to shave thousands of Muslims and later will force them to adopt the Hindu religion”
This was the same ideology of Adolf Hitler whose Nazi party killed thousands of Jews in Germany. Because he preferred Christians over Jews similarly in India they are killing Muslims and preferring Hinduism over any other religion.
The current Indian Prime minister Narendra Modi involved in various terrorism activities in India. The fascist government (BJP) involved in demolishing Babri Masjid and in November 2019, the supreme court of India ordered the entire site to handed over to a trust to build the Hindu temple.
Narendra Modi & Saffron Terrorism
When Fascist Modi the CM of Gujrat he had killed more than two thousand civilians there. Lately, in Delhi Muslims killed, their property got destroyed, and they forced to leave their neighborhood by Hindu extremists with the help of security forces. Muslims forced to abandon Islam and adopt Hinduism, there hundreds of videos circulating on social media where Muslims forced to abandon their religion.
Amendment In Bills
BJP has passed two Bills: the first one is the abrogation of article 370 which revoked the special status of Kashmir.
After that, they imposed curfew in Kashmir and picked thousands of youngsters. From Kashmir and God knows where their destination is. And they try to Convert Muslims majority to the minority in Kashmir even Prime Minister Imran khan mentioned it in his UN speech.
And second is the amendment in Citizenship bill according to which gives citizenship to everyone who entered India before December 2014 except Muslim.
This bill was passed in 2019 to marginalize Muslims and is enough to prove that India is no more secular because how can religion be a condition for citizenship in a secular country.
India is not only snatching rights from Muslims but from all the minorities that is why they are facing so many separation movements. In Punjab,
Indian military attacked Golden temple known as Operation Blue Star to kill religious Sikh leader Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale. After that, the Sikh separatist movement got ignited because they not feeling Secure in India. As Sikhs and this movement known as Khalistan movement in which Sikhs demanded a separate country and that movement still going on.
So, a country whose ruling party is potentially fascistic. A country whose ministers and MPAs are giving open statements against Muslims.
A man whose ideology is that the Hinduism is superior to any other religion. And India belongs to just Hindus, is ruling India not once. But twice in a row and second time came into power with more support than first. Which is proof that his ideology is prevailing in India.
Actions like Delhi riots, abrogation of article 370 and amendment in citizenship bill. By the government and support they got from the majority of their population. Means India is no more a secular state.
Minorities in India are not feeling safe, lately in public survey minority students in India said. “Modi (current PM) is Mussolini. And Amit shah (Minister of home affairs and right hand of Modi) is Hitler of India”.
RSS is the Nazi party of India and now their political wing BJP is in power. India was once secular to some extent. But not anymore this can be verified by a statement of a BJP leader. Who said “This is not the India of Gandhi and Nehru, this is the India of Modi and Amit Shah. It will take barely an hour to wipe Muslims if we get a go signal”.
So, how can a state where people are being oppressed. Just because of their religion and caste be a secular state?
