The Congress, which describes itself as secular, forms an alliance with the ISF in Bengal, it joins the Muslim League in Kerala and Badruddin’s party in Assam. It (the Congress) has no ideology. Its only ideology is corruption and nepotism and to come to power anyhow. Such alliances highlight the Congress’ “double speak and utmost hypocrisy. Rahul had once said that ‘yes, we are a party of Muslims’. But it is not even a party of Muslims, it is only a party of the family.

Home Minister Amit Shah spoke about the slogan of Jai Shree Ram and why CM Mamata Banerjee has disaffection towards the slogan
Now TMC people will not be able to harass us as the number of people who are with us, it is difficult for them to torture these many people. The slogan of Jai Shree Ram is not a religious slogan anymore for people of Bengal. You (Mamata) did appeasement politics for 10 years, it has become the slogan of people’s anger against you. Will you have to go to court to offer Durga Puja? Teachers and children will be beaten on Vasant Panchami for offering Saraswati puja? Why? Mamata Banerjee will have to answer this. The more she hates the slogan, the more louder it will grow.
I think the CM (Mamata) need not have reacted adversely to a slogan whether it’s ‘Jai Hind’ or ‘Jai Shri Ram’ – Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose’s grandnephew and BJP leader Chandra Kumar Bose
I think the CM need not have reacted adversely to a slogan whether it’s ‘Jai Hind’ or ‘Jai Shri Ram’. This is not the day to do any politics. It is a day to celebrate, it is a day to pay homage to the soldiers and martyrs of Indian National Army. Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose stood for unity. He had people of all communities in Azad Hind Fauj. Whether you say ‘Jai Hind’ or ‘Jai Sri Ram’, I don’t find any difference. ‘Jai Sri Ram’ isn’t a statement where one should react in an allergic manner.

While speaking to media, Himanta Biswa Sarma said, “Miya Muslim will not vote for BJP, I am saying from experience as in 2014 Lok Sabha polls and Panchayat polls they have not voted for BJP. They will vote for those who can serve their agenda. We will not allow setting up of Miya museum or writing of miya poetry.”

Prime Minister Narendra Modi and chief minister Mamata Banerjee attended that programme, which ran into a controversy, on January 23. Jishnu Basu, general secretary of the RSS Bengal unit, said on Tuesday. “The Sangh is unhappy with what happened. Those who raised the slogan neither showed respect to Netaji nor showed respect to Ram. The event was held to pay homage to Netaji. Those who shouted ‘Jai Shri Ram’ must be identified…the party (Bharatiya Janata Party) must find out who were involved and whether this was an act of sabotage of some sort”.

Cleric Peerzada Siddiqui claimed in undated video that Muslims are now majority in West Bengal – Anshul Saxena
Cleric Peerzada Siddiqui claimed in undated video that Muslims are now majority in West Bengal with 35% population and Dalits, Adivasis & Matuas are not Hindus. Won’t be surprised if he conspires to cut Bengal just like Sharjeel Imam conspired to cut Northeast from rest of India.
I have a clear opinion that a man is not great by his caste, but by his talent. In BJP also we have different cells…When I was the party president, I had experienced this. I am of the opinion that no cell should be formed on the basis of caste and religion, as there is no use of such units. The representatives of such cells ask how many tickets people from their caste have got from the party.

The state’s ordinance on unlawful religious conversion was signed into a law by governor Anandiben Patel on Saturday. From now on, it is illegal to religiously convert a person unless a two months’ notice is given to the district magistrate declaring one’s intent to convert. On October 31, while speaking at an election rally in Jaunpur, the UP CM promised a strict law against ‘love jihad’.
Love jihad is a political stunt. In our country, individuals have the right to choose their partners. Hindus marry Muslims, Muslims marry Hindus. If you get into the details of such cases, you will realise that the knot was tied happily. When things go wrong, then they allege that the boy was a Muslim. I would urge Muslim boys to consider Hindu girls as their sisters. Else, they could be tortured by the government.
Moradabad SP MP ST Hasan, on Thursday, urged Muslim youth to consider Hindu girls as their ‘sisters’ and said that they should not fall for them in view of the new ‘love jihad’ ordinance passed by the Uttar Pradesh government.

Asaduddin Owaisi speaks the language of rabid Islamism, separatism and extremism which Mohd Ali Jinnah was also speaking. They say give us 15 minutes and we will show Hindus their place.

Muslim community did not support even the 11 candidates from their community fielded by Nitish Ji – JD(U)’s Minority Cell State President Tanweer Akhtar
But the Muslim community did not support even the 11 candidates from their community fielded by Nitish Ji. Muslim community did not do justice with the JD(U). Now, I am not in a position to request Nitish Ji to give any special attention for the cause of Muslim community. Muslims themselves have created such a situation that today they have no representation in the cabinet.
When the 17th Bihar legislative assembly will meet for its maiden session on November 23, there will be no member from the minorities, especially Muslim community, in the treasury benches.

As a practising Muslim I always try to follow religious customs – Bangladesh cricketer Shakib Al Hasan forced to make a public apology

Kejriwal’s Diwali Pooja has made poodles on both the sides uncomfortable. One side is afraid to lose its monopoly over Hindus and the other side is calling him a Sanghi who faked secularism. According to Islamist logic, a secular Hindu politician never does pooja. Oh My Goat.
This is the greatest shift in Indian politics that PM Modi has brought about. Today, one can’t afford to be anti-Hindu and be relevant in politics. This is the new normal. This was dream of Veer Savarkar: “Hinduise all politics”. Best wishes to Kejriwal’s Diwali Pujan.

Both Asaduddin and his younger brother Akbaruddin Owaisi, who for me is a goon, misguide Muslims – Munawwar Rana
The AIMIM leader always divides Muslim votes which eventually benefits the Bharatiya Janata Party. Owaisi is an agent of the BJP and always has been acting as vote divider. Both Asaduddin and his younger brother Akbaruddin Owaisi, who for me is a goon, misguide Muslims, especially youth, and further create division among the Muslim voters in order to give direct benefit to the BJP because Owaisi has vested interest to save his Rs 15,000 crore worth properties, which include medical colleges, land and other businesses.
For Seemanchal in Bihar, a Muslim-dominated region, Owaisi should have joined hands with Tejashwi Yadav – Munawwar Rana
For Seemanchal in Bihar, a Muslim-dominated region, Owaisi should have joined hands with Tejashwi Yadav-led Mahagathbandhan to throw out the NDA, but instead he took BJP’s help to safeguard his interests. Those votes and seats could have changed the entire fate of Bihar politics. What welfare or justice would Owaisi do to Muslims by winning five seats in Bihar? For Asaduddin, UP-Bihar is a milk cow for his vested interest. The ‘Ganga Jamuni tehzeeb’ of the region is still a distant thought for him.
Article 370 is not linked to Muslims or Hindus. It was enacted to protect the identity of J&K. People are now worried about their future. They [Centre] have not only abrogated Article 370, but have also desecrated Baba Saheb Ambedkar’s Constitution.

I think terrorism will continue till Islam is reformed – Taslima Nasrin, Bangladeshi author-in-exile
I was very shocked. I think terrorism will continue till Islam is reformed. It is very important to stop indoctrination of children with irrational faith at home and institutions like Mosque and Madrasas. Children should be raised to have rational, logical minds and to adopt scientific outlook so that they can differentiate between right and wrong.
Numerous verses of the holy book speak of killing infidels. There is express advice to kill non-Muslims. Terrorists kill to please their god in order to get heaven in afterlife — this is the result of indoctrination of people with an unreformed religion.
18-year-old Chechen Muslim beheaded a teacher. Now,a 21-year-old Tunisian Muslim, Brahim Aoussaoui, who arrived in Europe just a few weeks ago, beheaded a woman & stabbed 2 people to death. So young! They didn’t even have a terrorist training. What incites them to kill? Religion!
If you care for Muslims, you would let them become educated, independent, efficient, tolerant, secular with scientific temper. If we do not care for Muslims you won’t mind if they are blinded with religion, become violent over cartoons, become fanatics, barbaric, terrorists.
The most bullshit sentiment in this century is ‘religious sentiment’.Crazy religionists brutally kill people if their bullshit sentiment is hurt. Everyday our hundred different sentiments are hurt, we adult people know how to cope with it. Those religionists need to be grown-up.
Insane people in Bangladesh want 2 boycott French products over MOcartoons..They had no rally against rape,murder, corruption,poverty,autocracy. No call for boycotting Chinese products eventhough China destroyed a mosque to build a public toilet. Islams’not a religion, it’s politics.

Gokhale, in his letter to MHA’s visa wing and FRRO, said Taslima Nasreen’s tweet “is a blatant and intentional attempt to spread communal disharmony and hatred in our country”.
Of course he does and he must. No cartoon, no matter how offensive can justify beheadings. But that’s not the point of our argument. Muslims can feel aggrieved and it’s perfectly fine to peacefully protest. That’s their FoE too- the liberal values Macron is standing for.
Sanghis are Hindus. I am Hindu. If they peddle primitive ideas I would protest strongly because that would directly affect my life. Practices of other religions don’t affect my daily life. Why is it so difficult to understand?
