The Rise of The Indian Taliban

The Rise of The Indian Taliban

Family of Mohammad Akhlaq

If we were against Taliban and their atrocities in Afghanistan then we must raise our voices against the emergence of the same in India the country known in the world for peace and humility. The new trend of curbing rational and scientific thinking evident from the murders of rational thinker M.M. Kalburgi and Narender Dhobalkar. Bans of different kinds to restrain freedom of people. Killing or abusing of people who speak against any wrongdoing. Confining women to homes. These are all signs of the rise of Indian Taliban i.e the group of fanatics which think what they are doing is right and every one must follow their will.

These groups are dividing society on the basis of religion to spread their agenda by creating animosity between the communities. Recent public lynching of Mohammad Akhlaq in Dadri village of UP for alleged possession of beef which was not even banned in the state and killing of a Muslim youth in Kanpur area by projecting him as a Pakistani terrorist confirms the reach of Hindu fanatics in the interiors of our villages. Since the time Modi government has came in power such incidents have increased drastically, groups claiming them as torch bearer of Indian culture beat Muslim youths seen talking to Hindu girls, they don't allow them entry in Garba and other such celebrations which are breaking 'Ganga-Jamuni' culture of India to intermingle in each other's festivals. Hindu dominated societies deny flats to Muslims, some companies inclined to their thinking don't give jobs to Muslims. This have never happened in the country so openly before, a trend which is a threat to India's unity.  

Below is the table showing trend of the rise of The Indian Taliban : 


·         Eat according to Islamic beliefs. (Pork Ban, Liquor Ban)

·         Women should not study, work, should remain covered.

·         Religious education of Quran and other Muslim scriptures.

·         Other faiths not allowed.

·         Attacks on people of other religion and destroying their religious places.(Destructions of ancient Jain temples)

·         Western education and traditions is state enemy.(Attack on Malala Yusufzai)

·         Public lynching of offender.

·         Eat according to Hindu beliefs. (Beef ban, meat ban)

·         Women should not work (leads to male unemployment – Chattisgarh text book) , Should keep long hairs.

·         Religious education of Geeta, Vedas and other ancient Hindu scriptures.

·         Other faiths need Ghar Wapsi.

·         Attacks on people of other religion and destroying their religious places. ( Church attack in Haryana,W.B, mosque attacked in U.P, Bihar.

·         Western culture against our tradition.

·         Public lynching of offender.

Uttar Pradesh is witnessing highest number of communal clash cases, riots incidents and hate crimes. Akhilesh Yadav's failure in curbing these incidents is an open secret, Mulayam Singh Yadav's sudden soft heart for Narender Modi and then allowing of communal clashes in the state I think have something to do with CBI inquiry scheduled against him. Whatever be the reason but the common people are facing the burnt of this fire. The victims of riots are not limited to people of Muslim or any other minority community but poor people of all religions suffers its brutality.

The spread of fanaticism of any kind is injurious to the health for a progressive society. These fanatics bring the rocks of culture,tradition and religion in the way of development by limiting our thought processes and thus cutting our wings of free thinking. A strong action is required against these forces and when we have Prime Minister who believes that communal-ism is poison for society, I hope for a strong and effective action against these incidents. I also wants to appeal to the people of all  the communities to not give your ears to the rumors by hate mongers. Whatsapp and facebook are good to connect with friends but these days they are used mostly to spread hate messages which you must avoid to send further for the development and betterment of the nation. 


  1. Beautiful post. Well written.
    Fanaticism and hate of any kind are very dangerous for the country.
    But who (which ruler /politician) is bothered about the country....?

The Masked Life

I met with an accident few years back (precisely 10 years ago). It was dangerous and I came out of hospital in about ten days. Except a foot injury which needed dressing every week for around a year I was alright. But that what I and my family thought but as I few days past I realized problems of sore throat, running nose, itching eyes which were watering and initially it was difficult to even face a bright light. I was diagnosed with allergy from almost anything cold water, wind, dust, etc which increases in changing season. Doctor advised me to spend most time in homes and medicines were provided to control the allergy. It cured with time and now I only take single tablet daily to control my allergy. The doctor said to take it only when allergy symptoms appear but they comes out when I stop taking medicine. Now while researching about indoor air pollution I found what force me to take that tablet continuously even when I am mostly home-bound. 
We can avoid Indoor ai…

Bitter Bread

Bitter Bread
Bread,doubleroti,pao,bun or we call it with any other name; it is the part of our breakfast which completes our daily routine. This ready to eat item is popular with egg and butter but the recent study by Centre For Science and Environment (CSE) have turned this must breakfast eatable bitter. 
CSE conducted test on various samples collected from different part of the capital belonging to different brands. They found 84% samples test positive for potassium bromate and potassium iodate after tests on 38 varieties which include Britannia,Harvest Gold,KFC, McDonalds, Domino's Pizza and Subway. These revelations are shocking and disturbing as all of us have eaten from one of these brands. It should also be noted that these two substances which are used to soften breads and enhance their color and texture namely potassium bromate and potassium iodate are banned in many countries of the world after a study conducted in the 90's. These substances however are not harmful a…

RIP Tom Alter

RIP Tom Alter
I am sure those who grew up in nineties are not unfamiliar with his name. Like many I also has his first image in my mind is of 'British Raj Ka Writer' in Doordarshan serial 'Zabaan Sambhaal Ke' where he played an Englishman writer who is learning Hindi. He was impressive in that role along with the other's worked in it. I later saw him in films like Charas, Karma, Kranti and films like that where he has played bad characters of Firangi (foreign) officer. He played these negative characters impressively and when you compare them with his comic role in Zabaan Sambhalke you will know his acting proves. 
I also remembered him as Mahaguru in popular superhero serial Shaktimaan but what inspired me about him later on in my life was his command on Hindi and Urdu. He recite shayaris and ghazals beautifully. I have seen performing him many time on television. I also knew he was a great theater actor but never got any chance to see him live on stage. His ghaz…
