i, muslim. feel liberated by the mujahideen. bullshit.

November 27, 2008

ive been thinking of writing for quite some time now. ive drafted some crap a few times and scrapped it. today i had to.

mumbai is under attacks. 100 people dead including 6 firangs. 250 ppl injured. taj and oberoi face the brunt too. 2 fuckin killer hotels with such amazing architecture are down. couldnt believe my eyes when i saw the images. the taj roof on fire. the cst platform spray painted in blood. people being dragged out of their blood pools from leopold cafe (i recalled it from the shantaram that i had read a few months back. so descriptive was the novel that it felt i could see the bodies lying in the blood). deccan muhajideen claims responsibility. they targeted the americans and britshers per se. so that they can liberate the indian muslims. i wont be surprised if indian muslims were found among the dead.

being a muslim, i dont feel liberated by such hallowed events. it disgusts me. and they pray 5 times a day to allah, assuming their sins have been washed off. they never realise that their brains have been washed off and that they are neck deep in sins. i wouldnt say drowning, because let them float with their heads above the surface, let them commit such more sinous crimes so that when day comes, even the best deeds they have done in life cant be exchanged for even a grass in the lands of the angels.

the beautiful letdown.

    the only thing which bothers me is how are they trying to bridge the gaps between muslims and others religions with these attacks…an’t we just falling apart in the worst of ways????

    what I dont understand is, why you think are the same muslim as these people. Why after so much of development and literacy we still have to say something as a hindu or as a muslim. isnt this the victory of these people who do something in the name of one religion?
    have my prayers as hindu are any different than your prayers as muslim despite the fact that we worship different gods? No! We still pray for wellness of our friends family country and humanity. that is the religion. Terrorist dont have a name or a religion. So stop considering yourself as a muslim like these people do, coz its exactly what they want you to do. its about time we as a community forget asking surname we as a community forget we r hindu or muslim or other.

    @sushrut : can u really help forgetting that you belong to a particular religion. like a community you said we should stick together rite?
    i myself have overlooked religion where people look into it the most. i, being a hindu, am in the most beautiful relationship with a muslim. and trust me it isn’t that easy coz at the back of both of our minds this thing is always there.
    go see the movie AAMIR if u haven’t till now. it speaks volumes of how an educated muslim feels

    Because they claim to be muslim, doesnt mean that they are! They could easily be a non muslim group caliming to be muslim so that the world can unload another war on terrorism campaign against muslims. I dont think muslims are that stupid to go around killing innocents in the name of Islam. What hogwash!

    @saiyon I do. I hardly ever cared whether its Sahil K for khan or for Kulkarni… its does not matter to me. I have been taught never to even ask some one his/her surname. having this “always” on back of our mind just shows shallowness of our thoughts..

  6. November 27, 2008 7:33 pm

    @sushrut nor have i been taught to ask something like “Sir/Madam, what’s your last name?”.
    the reason why it is always there are the back of our minds is because both of us have to go through a struggle and come out of it victorious for a safe and secure future.i don’t want a rizwanur rahman episode in my life and that is why we both have to take very measured steps and keep certain things at “back of our minds”.
    now if keeping in mind someone’s safety is termed by you as “shallow”, i rest my case.

  7. November 27, 2008 7:49 pm

    Hmm, first of all when I say shallowness of our thoughts, I mean “our” as a community and not you as an individual.

    Tell me one thing I am a brahmin. Brahmins were tortured, killed after assasination of Gandhi. So should I stop telling people I am a brahmin? Should I stop wearing ‘Janva’? Should sikhs stop wearing turban? Should muslims stop wearing topi? No right?
    I think you are blowing one episode out of proportion. Just coz something happened with some one, that does not necessarily mean you have to live your life constantly under pressure of being targeted. This is the fear terrorist want to have in each one of us and you are giving them easy prey, IMHO. Stop worrying and enjoy your life, relationships.

    Saiyona: Muslims are always Muslims first, no matter what you think about your beautiful relationship. If history is any guide, your beautiful relationship does not bode well for your future. They entice you, the hindu girls who are progressive by nature and nurture, into getting married. Once that is accomplished they will put you under the veil, and give you name that is straight from Saudi Wahabi books. Besides the Muslim identity trumps all nationality. They can go to war against their own countries, friends, and loved ones if their mission or mollahs call for it. There is nothing moderate or tolerant in Islam. Either you are a human or you a Muslim. No room for moderation. So Don’t fool yourself. Think again while there is still time.

    @tushar Guess what? narrow minded people like you give a way to all these kinds of prejudices. It is because of people like you that some communities in the society are looked down upon and it is because of people like you the society has become so narrow minded as it is today.
    you don’t have to give me advice as to what i should do and whom i should trust.
    if muslims are muslims, do not forget that people from other religions also belong to their own religions, don’t you feel ashamed that it is WE, the Hindus have broken down the Babri Masjid because of no reason. before you just point your finger at someone else just look into your ownself.
    how cheap and narrow minded can your mentality get?

    @sushrut i hope you have seen the comment just below your last comment. it is because of people like tushar that i have the whole religion thing in my mind because more than being worried abt themselves, they are worried abt wat other people are doing and wat’s going on in their lives.

  11. November 28, 2008 10:06 am

    @tushar this is what i feel and so do all the muslims…because of a group of uncontrollable so-called muslims and other so-called affected religion followers…if u dont notice im a muslim who has written this post…it depends on the up bringing of the child that determines the nature of his/her thinking…if u hvnt gone thru the holy quran thn go thru it…moderate thinking is in each religion…the wahabi’s are the most orthodox sect among the muslims…im not one of them and so isnt everyone…take a trip to the other islamic nations in the middle east and ull find a world which u never thot of…far more progressive than what is india in terms of economy…and free will if u want to consider that…

    the target audience for such attackers are people like you…

    FYI…one of the islamic nation has a FashionTV branch which many people in india watch at “nights”…does india have that??? talk about being moderate and open minded…

    Tushar: Your knowledge of Islam is totally wrong. If one were to judge the entire community based on few deluded souls, Hinduism shall not score very high points either. Tell me even one clause in Hindu scriptures that justifies the killing of the Christians. No religion in itself is bad, it is the people that make it so.
    Sushrut: A religion is an identity. No matter how educated you are you can’t do away with religion. Also, religions are not meant to divide people, as Swami Vivekanand says: Just like there are many roads that lead to a destination, there are different religions to reach God.
    Sahil: I thought you were an agnostic! But yeah no Muslim feels liberated due to these attacks.

  13. November 28, 2008 10:20 am

    @ashwin hehe…yes i am…but reasons like these have made me one…and well if someone asks me take my pants off to check if im a muslim…that fact is true (tho many people undergo that surgery as it is considered healthy and safe)…and a religion is an identity…i believe in god/allah but not to the point that he decided my life and that i have to pray 5 times a day to make my way to heaven…faith in HIM is enough for me

    @Sahil: You are an Aethist then. An agnostic is a person who neither believes in the existence of God, nor in the non-existence. Besides my question is why limit oneself to a singular set of beliefs by belonging to a religion? I think it is better to form one’s beliefs based on experience and logic and not on books. But that’s me.

  15. November 28, 2008 10:43 am

    @ashwin uve got it wrong…its the other way round…and abt the singular set…no i dnt…

  16. November 28, 2008 12:20 pm

    @Tushar.. dude I guess you should wake up in 21st century now instead of 16th. Perio. Dont want to waste my energy on people like you.

    @Saiyon I know there are few people like these who will always do something which will cause chaos. Our job is to not give them attention, not fall into the trap of fear. Like Master Yoda said- do not fear the loss. Loss is the path to dark side. Some people who fall for these fear then start riots or extremist movements. Hope you understand this.

    There is no point blaming a particular section of society guys..terrorism has no religion..its just that somehwre inside we all related terrorism to Islam.
    Be honest to yourselves – how many of us believe that Sadhvi Pragya Singh is a terrorist?
    We all will like the enquiry to get over to believe that there is something called hindu terrorism (if any)..but we brand any muslim who is caught as terrorist without waiting for any proof.
