As for the uncoth comments on this blog … it seems that either some of the respondents are totally brain washed into believing what they believe or they have poor english-language skills to understand the full essence of what Dr. Engineer said.

The very supposition that Sangh Parivar is not biased against the minority communities is a joke. The bottemline of the Hindu-right wing belief is “… that our culture, thinking and psychology should prevail (not co-exist) over that of the minorities with an end aim of replacing them subequently and eventually …”

What is required really is a truely broad-minded approach … because mind you … the minorities are numerous enough, though minorities, in India that Hindu right wing will end up doing nothing but harming the larger Indian interest.

The author can’t see what is the plight of muslims during more than 50 years of congress rule in India and yet they blame it on the “6 years” of BJP rule in India. Because of hypocrites like you the scums of congress are destroying India with their minority appeasement policies. Just to appease Muslims the congress took off POTA & immediately you see the results in fighting terror, never seen a more failed government (blame that italian for all these, she and her “secular” image), and afzal guru is just hoping for “mera number kab aayega???”…Absolute nonsense treating a terrorist like any other criminal is just another example what this congress is all about and when BJP questions about afzal, they say they want to hang him because he is muslim and BJP is communal. “Minorities” in India are pulling the country back with their mentality of supporting the “secular” congress and going against “communal” BJP. If you see the history of India, you will really find out who is communal and who is secular! This nonsense author will never go beyond the blogs!!!! IDIOT!

I am not against of Indian muslims and I don’t think BJP or SS or RSS are against them. India had composite culture, but things has changed after 1947 so if someone is making use of minority as sheild what the heck wronge BJP did?? The only thing they are supporting Hindu and Hinduism what’s wronge in supporting Shri Ram or Hinduism..?? When American president takes oath for presidential term he refers to Holy Bible and Christian values is that not fundamentalism Mr Ali Asghar..?? and if BJP or ShivSena or RSS backs Hinduism a scholer like you comparing them to Jamaat.. what a pity..?? No address is complete without referring to religion. I think you might have got heavily paid by some congressman to make such foolish statements.. hats off..

Looks like a total anti-hindu fanatic to me. If you are as secular as you are pretending to be by publishing this article, can I see another publication of what some hindu scholar thinks of congress’s muslim vote bank politics? But if you cant write that, then stop this pretense of responsible journalism.

True, its a fact but then the media can be a little more sensitive and sensible. Can we not talk about the development instead ?? Which government has contributed the most to nation’s development ? Which state govt. has performed the best ?? I think that should be the criteria of political analysis. That is what should drive the voter to the polling booth and the candidate…not his / his candidate’s caste and religion. These politicians play around with our emotions and we become their puppets. That’s not what democracy means… Democracy, as it is known, means Rule of the People, By the People and For the People …. WHERE ARE WE THE PEOPLE ????
