Muslims are born secular because it is in the teachings of Islamic scripture that do good with everybody irrespective of religion, colour and creed.
True the image of Muslims all over the world is not good because it is tarnished by the powerful countries for their self interest. But a faith which considers killing of a single innocent human equal to killing of an entire humanity is being labeled as propounder of terrorism. Nothing can be bigger travesty than this.
India is a country where same propaganda is spread because of which a section of people have gone berserk, attacking and lynching Muslims in the name of love jihad, beef eating and and now triple talaq.
There are countless people with spouses from different faiths and some prominent ones in BJP too. Most of the world consumes beef and that includes West and America not only the Muslim world. But these people see only already victimized Indian Muslims as the culprits and go after them. In a country where stray cows roam the streets eating trash no movement has started for their protection. When Muslim girls marry Hindu boys not a single voice is raisedbut all hell breaks loose once a Hindu girl falls in love with a Muslim boy.
People of Kashmir are keenly observing this new face of India and they wonder when such vigilantism will reach here.
A humble request is made to the Govt of J&K to analyse the atmosphere created by such forces to rip off the secular fabric in the name of religion.
It is a benefit driven ideology which will have serious consequences if not nipped in the bud. Secondly if the Govt of India doesn’t protect the secular fabric of India it will only prove MA Jinnah right that India post British was turning into a Hindu Rashtra and necessitated the creation of Pakistan.
