Fight starts here

My Monday column for Mid-Day, written after last week's blasts in Delhi, here. (I will have more to say about the South Asia Terrorism Portal, mentioned in the article, in a later post). As always, comments welcome.

D'Souza ,

You are deliberately obfuscating and hence justifying Islamic terrorism - carried out by Indian muslims with help from across the border , with communal riots that happened in the past.

Today we have a situation in India where hundreds and thousands of muslims all over the country , from Bihar to UP , Mumbai to Hyderabad , Cochin to Trivendrum, are joining Lashkar-e-Toiba and Jaish-e-Mohammad.

Attempts were made by Indian muslims to target Indian Military Academy at Dehradoon and Electronic City in Bangalore. Fortunately , they were captured before they could execute their plans. What if they had succeeded ? What if they had killed 100-200 young Indian Army officers ? No doubt you would still point out the Gujarat riots and Modi and urge the nation to punish the terrorists , and at the same time castigate the people of the country for daring to expect muslims to condemn these acts of terrorism.

I have nothing but contempt for you and your ilk.

Riots in FRance are entering their 12th day and it is threatening to engulf all of Europe. Note the deafening silence of the secular brigade. Where are the secular essay prize winners? Unless they are making up excuses for the rioters : discrimination, anger at the Iraq war, marginalisation etc etc. Never mind the fact that these people are immigrants from famine stricken lands. BTW so far there are no reports of any Hindutva types agitating and burning cars.

Simple question: If you have so much contempt for the author, why do you read every column he writes?

Actually I have read only a couple of articles by the writer and have been visiting this blog only for the last 2-3 days. But I have seen enough to form an opinion on him.He is seems to be a part of the India hating leftist brigade that I hate so much.

Did the author appoint you as his spokesperson? Or this shameless plugging is in anticipation of a prize for your essay like Uma?

Maybe the author should post his rants for a private group if he can't handle critisim.

Raj: Your analysis on this author is on the mark.
