I wish to congratulate you for taking time off from your hectic shooting schedule to come down to the rain-washed streets of tony Bandra to protest vehemently against the killing of individual Muslims by the beef brigade in parts of the country.
Before you get this nacheez wrong, let me make it clear that I am also against the killing of anyone except by the due process of law. Honestly, I don’t understand what all this bovine brouhaha is all about because Article 48 of the Constitution clearly enjoins upon the government to ban the slaughter of cows, calves, milch and draught animals. As many as 24 state governments have enacted cow slaughter laws whose Constitutional validity was upheld by the Supreme Court in a landmark judgment on October 26, 2005.
What I don’t understand is why you and the Fab India types have never protested against the violent eviction of three lakh Hindus by Muslim terrorists from the Kashmir valley. Maybe because the bloody Hindus who are opposed to the merger of Kashmir with Pakistan deserve this and more. Recently, a Dy. Superintendent of Police Ayub Pandit was lynched outside a mosque in Kashmir because he was mistaken for a Hindu by the anti-national mob. Such lynchings are common in the Valley.
You and persons of your ilk kept completely quiet when 3,000 Sikhs were massacred in Delhi by Congress mobs. Maybe, in your well-considered opinion, Congressmen are blue-blooded secularists and cannot indulge in violence against minorities. Btw most communal riots, including the one of December 1992-January 1993 in Mumbai, have taken place in the country when the Congress was in power.
You and your friends are totally silent when lakhs of Muslim women are currently fighting a brave and historic battle against the inhuman practice of triple talaq. Maybe because the poster boy of secularism Kapil Sibalji is appearing in the Supreme Court for the male chauvinistic Muslim Personal Law Board which is vehemently supporting 3T (Talaq Talaq Talaq).
The sleep of millions of non-Muslims is disturbed 365 days of the year by the call for Fajr (dawn) namaz made through mosque loudspeakers. Several times appeals have been made to the imams not to use loudspeakers for Fajr namaz. What a great gesture of good will it be to all non-Muslims if this simple demand is accepted? I never find you and those like you support this elementary demand.
You and your pals did not find it necessary to condemn those activists of JNU who called for the “barbadi of Hindustan.”
It is this selective secularism of activists like you, which barely conceals disgust for Hindus, which has given a bad name to the very word secularism.
If Modi is your target please say so openly. Please don’t further your anti-Hindu agenda by making a spectacle of yourself on the streets.
