Indian State terrorism

Humeira Butt

Muharram 11, 14392017-10-01

Contrary to its self-projected image of a “nonviolent” country, India under Narendra Modi is a textbook example of a terrorist state. No religious minority is safe in India. Muslims top the list of those targeted by Hindu fascists.

Shahid Alam

Rabi' al-Awwal 01, 14382016-12-01

Narendra Modi’s anti-Pakistan policy is driven both by internal compunctions and external factors. The bottom line is to appeal to Hindu fascists from whose ranks Modi has emerged.

Crescent International

Rajab 18, 14352014-05-17

Narendra Modi, India's prime minister elect has been compared to Adolf Hitler. He comes with “impressive” Nazi credentials to earn the epithet. India's minorities, especially the 150 million Muslims, will find life even more difficult now under Modi who has won a clear majority to rule.

India’s laborious elections are about to catapult the Hindu fascists back into power with disastrous consequences for the 180 million Muslims there. Pity India’s minorities; Delhi is about to adopt Nazi policies yet will be feted by the West.

India’s maulanas confusing Muslims over elections

Crescent International

Jumada' al-Akhirah 14, 14352014-04-14

The tragedy of Muslims in India is that they face two enemies: the fascist Hindus that closely follow the Nazi ideology, and their own religious leaders. The maulanas of India are a bunch of opportunists that issue statements to benefit themselves, not the broader Muslim community. Pity the Muslims as the Hindu Nazis of the BJP are poised to come to power in India with elections underway.

Indian Muslim organizations condemn Saudis over Ikhwan stance

Crescent International

Jumada' al-Ula' 15, 14352014-03-16

Saudis are finding that even their petro-dollars can no longer buy the loyalty of some Muslims. Darul Uloom Nadwatul Ulama of Lucknow in India has shown rare courage by openly condemning the Saudis for declaring the Ikhwan al-Muslimoon in Egypt and Hamas in Palestine as “terrorist” organizations. Nadwa's principled stand was immediately endorsed by a number of other organizations and Muslim political parties in India.

Crescent International

Jumada' al-Ula' 06, 14232002-07-16

The war-clouds of Indo-Pak nuclear conflict have cleared temporarily, and so has media attention. The Vajpayee government had to keep the media and public distracted, lest they turn their attention to Gujrat.


Hindu fundamentalist threat to India’s Muslims


Rabi' al-Awwal 03, 14232002-05-16

The routine use of the labels ‘terrorist’ and ‘terrorism’ to criminalise Muslims and legitimise any action against them has reached new levels in India, with cabinet minister Shanta Kumar claiming on April 28 that the Godhra train incident was an act of "international terrorism" whose objective was to "weaken" Indian defence positions on the border and make it more porous for infiltration by jihadis.

A week of mayhem by Hindu terrorists that erupted on February 27 left at least 700 people officially dead, most of them Muslims, in the western Indian state of Gujarat.

Nine years after the martyrdom of the Babri mosque, Indian Muslims remember

M. Z. Abdul Rahman

Shawwal 01, 14222001-12-16

December 6 is a black day for Muslims. Nine years ago it was a milestone in Muslim history in India. On that day in 1992 what was destroyed was not merely a monument of the Mughal era, nor just a place of worship for Muslims. The enemies of Islam tried not just to shake the Muslim will-power but uproot their foundations.

Essays on Islam and the Muslim experience in India and the subcontinent

Iqbal Siddiqui

Jumada' al-Akhirah 13, 14222001-09-01

History is a broad church (to put it mildly) and the term ‘historian’ covers a bewildering range of sinners, from those deliberately hiding from unpleasant realities in the study of the deadest-possible past (agrarian life in the Aztec empire, say) to contemporary historians whose agendas are blatantly political, with no end of variation between.
