I hate extremism in religion, whatever be the religion. It does not matter who started it. Yes, the Moguls started the atrocities. But Sanatana Dharmam has always withstood every storm quietly, like the mighty oak that weathers the tempest. It did not need to fight back, the opponent was too small for a fair fight.
Today, I see fundamentalism rising in the mohallas and alleys of India where none of that kind existed. Muslims praying in the middle of the busy roads whilst the traffic adjusts is an alarming sign to many Hindus here, but one has to note that it did not happen when the Congress was in power. This happens only when BJP is in power, and that should tell something.
You can't take Islam out of India and still have India. They came in, they looted alright and even committed a million atrocities, but then they also became us.
It is not fair on either side to seek to establish a world that now only exists in the history books and in the dreams of misguided minds.
Neither a Ramaraajyam nor an Islamic state are possible here. Only the secular socialist republic of India is possible. That India with her temple spires rising above the horizon and reverberating with the loud calls of azaan is the India that I know of. And that's the India I want to have with me. Anything else, is preposterous.
I hope, better sense prevails.
