Contours of a Demographic Siege

A defining characteristic of our Secular-Left-Liberal academics is their incredible felicity to theorise reality. This theory is then injected into public discourse by their handmaidens in the media. As a consequence, we now have an entire generation of academics who sit in the lawns and lounges of India International Centre and spout out the “real” reason for say, the Muzaffarnagar riots and reel off reams of “analyses.” Equally, we have an entire generation of journalists whose faculties rebel against even the notion of stepping out their TV studios. And inRead More
Consider these headlines: Mob attacks Gujarat train, toll 57 (Times of India) godhra: in a ghastly incident, at least 57 persons were burnt alive and many injured when the ahmedabad-bound sabarmati express was stoned and set on fire by a mob at godhra junction on wednesday morning. the dead comprised 17 men, 25 women and 14 children, most of whom were in the s-6 coach which was charred as the mob put petrol cans to deadly use. at least 36 persons were taken to the godhra civil hospital with burnsRead More
Note: This is a translation of Pratap Simha’s piece entitled ??????? ????????? ???????? ????, ???? ???????? ?????????????? ??????? that appeared in Kannada Prabha on 23 February, 2013. Image Courtesy: Kannada Prabha 2 May, 2011 Osama Bin Laden who was hiding in Abbottabad, Pakistan, was flushed out by the United States and gunned down. Not only did the US extract its revenge, it didn’t cremate Laden’s body—it simply chucked his dead body in the sea. Predictably, everybody did expect Al Qaida to take their revenge against America in turn. Al QaidaRead More
Do you know who Rohit Pradhan is? Neither do I. But apparently Outlook thought it fit to carry this nonentity’s sorry excuse of an article against Narendra Modi, a poor imitation of Salil Tripathi’s eminently venomous piece in Mint last year. We’ll get to that later but first we need to strip the first five paragraphs of Rohit Pradhan’s 1017-word long textual bile to unmask what it really is: naked communalism. While we’re at those first five paragraphs, check out these gems: Lionized by a deviously clever PR machine andRead More
What’s common to LeT, JuD, Yasin Malik, and Hafiz Saeed? All are terrorists who’ve vowed the destruction of India and have at various points, taken violent steps to make this intention clear. What else is common to LeT, JuD, Yasin Malik, and Hafiz Saeed? All of ‘em terrorists have mourned the execution of the homegrown traitor cum terror mastermind, Afzal Guru. Guess who all else share the aforementioned commonality? Anand Patwardhan—One of the early scavengers of the Gujarat riots, he washed India’s dirty linen in the US and elsewhere inRead More
Be very scared each time you hear the words “Grand Mufti.” The first thing it reminds us of is the Grand Mufti Haj Amin al-Husseini, the Islamic cleric and extremist leader of Jerusalem who personally oversaw the massacre of Jews not once but twice. The story of how he ordered the slaughter of thousands of Jews in Palestine first in 1929 and then in 1936, is a sickening episode of history. The reason: Jews were the enemy whose fate was death. And this fate was decreed by Islamism-crazed leaders likeRead More

The Case Against Dishonesty

My feelings for the multi-headed and ever-reverse-evolving beast called the Indian National Interest alias Takshashila alias…whatever its next avatar…have similarly evolved over the past 5-6 years. In the reverse. Currently, I feel infinite pity. It could change depending on what shape they’ll take tomorrow. From proclaiming that they stand “strongly” for the Indian National Interest, they’ve plumbed the depths of whitewashing cruel historical records and falsifying historical truths, a project that invariably needs the aid of falsehood and ignorance or both. The latest exhibit purportedly makes a “case for IndianRead More
This man has caused great loss not only to the Muslim community but to the entire society. He may be occupying a very high office, but we will not spare him. He has committed grave and deliberate mistakes. I have ordered a detailed inquiry into the bank’s functioning. This is how Mumtaz Ali Khan, Karnataka Minister for Haj, Wakf and Minority Welfare thundered in November 2009. Guess who he thundered against? The One Who Rightfully Got Elevated in True Congress Tradition of Rewarding the Corrupt. The One Who Now AdornsRead More
NOTE: This is my translation of Pratap Simha’s piece titled Hindugale Haedigalaagiruvaaga Anyarannu Doori Phalavenu that appeared in Kannada Prabha on August 25, 2012. As always, comments and criticism are welcome. It has been called brain drain or flight of talent. Much noise has been made against it. It has been held responsible for this nation’s continued backwardness. But then, no matter what, in the 1970s, 80s, and 90s decades, people who had dreams of  building a bright future for themselves, people who embarked on a quest to find careerRead More
Note: This is a translation of Pratap Simha’s column titled, Deshapremakkinta doddade dharmaprema? which appeared in Kannada Prabha on August 18, 2012. The picture used in this piece is taken from the original. Comments and criticism are welcome as always. August 8, in the Indian Parliament: “I warn the Central Government; I warn the honourable Members over here… If proper rehabilitation [Of Bangladeshi Muslims] does not take place, you be ready for a third wave of radicalisation among Muslim youth.” The person who said this wasn’t some Mullah but theRead More
There is a reason I went into such detail in my earlier post tracing the soft Jihad in Assam to its roots. Apart from showing that it is rooted in Islamic scripture, it was also a foundation of sorts to show how, historically, the world over, this scripture has killed and displaced entire geographies, a process that continues till date and what will happen if it is allowed a free run. What happens in the long run is this: it breeds Dhimmitude, and once that stage is reached, this DhimmitudeRead More
Preface Let’s call things by their proper name. What is continuing to unfold in Assam is soft Jihad. It isn’t an ethnic strife, much less a riot. It is soft Jihad not in terms of the scale or intensity of violence but because it is not explicitly unleashed by an Islamic state—or by an Islamic terrorist-superstar like Bin Laden—against a non-Islamic state. It follows a theological dictum from which emerged a time-tested pattern, which has been consistently repeated across both world history and geography. I argue that: What we’re seeingRead More
