‘Isn’t this our country?’ Why Muslims in Uttar Pradesh feel shaken, ‘harassed’

    Anam Nisha is a first-year student in the department of chemical engineering at the Rohilkhand University in Bareilly. The daughter of a mechanic, her parents battled hostile relatives, uncomfortable with sending a girl to college, and decided to educate her— she will become the first engineer in her family.

    Nisha has made friends with her classmates, a majority of Hindus. But something changed during the 2017 elections in UP.

    “I did not feel this earlier. But in this election, among our friends, this feeling of being Hindu and Muslim sharpened. In discussions, our friends made us feel we were different.” She says the BJP had created this ‘division’.

    Mohammed Tanweer, a final year student from Gorakhpur, nods. “When the PM came and said kabristan and shamshanghat, we felt uncomfortable. Look at issues being raised everyday. It makes us sometimes ask — do we have the wrong name?”

    No generalisation about a community as large and diverse as Indian Muslims can be entirely accurate. Yet, in the course of meeting dozens of young Muslims, from west UP to the eastern most edge of Bihar, it became clear that Nisha and Tanweer are not exceptions. Muslims are shaken, disturbed, and worried.

    Living as ‘anti-nationals’

    Firoze Ahmad is an assistant professor in the Aligarh Muslim University’s campus in Kishanganj, in Bihar’s Seemanchal. “Muslims have begun avoiding public gatherings because anything you say can be misconstrued. On social media, as soon as you say something, you are immediately branded anti-national, terrorist, and of course Pakistani,” he says.

    A survey conducted by the well-regarded Centre for the Study of Developing Societies in four states — Gujarat, Haryana, Odisha and Karnataka — gives a clue into the mindset that leads to these labels. Only 13% of Hindus saw Muslims as ‘highly patriotic’, even though 77% Muslims saw themselves as ‘highly patriotic’.

    When asked what, specifically, was bothering him, Firoze Ahmad says, “Look at the hate campaigns. When they say love jehad, raise triple talaq, talk of gau raksha, want ghar wapsi, who are they targeting? There is a common pattern. They want to ignite new debates with Muslims as the target group.”

    He then clarifies. “It is not the PM. He is for Sabka saath, sabka vikaas. It is those acting in his name. They need to be punished.”

    Shadab Khan is pursuing an MBA in the campus.

    “This nationalism discourse has created a gulf. If I say I love Barcelona, I am a nationalist. But if I say I love Pakistani player Shahid Afridi, I become an anti-national. This has percolated down to every college, every street, every social media conversation.”

    Across age groups and regions, most Muslims blamed BJP and the Sangh parivar, but they were as critical of the media.

    Back in Bareilly, Heeba Roshan, a second year student of chemical engineering, noted, with a laugh, “There would have been far more peace, and so much less insecurity, if we all stopped TV news.”

    Media penetration had increased, every household was watching news, this was shaping mindsets, and the content usually reinforced the views that Hindus held of the community, and alienated Muslims, pointed Ahmad.

    Sense of discrimination

    All of this points to a degree of psychological alienation. But is this merely perceptional or is it rooted in facts?

    In Kishanganj, Raashid Nehaal is the director of the AMU campus — which operates out of two temporary buildings, one of which also doubles up as both the academic block and the girls hostel. There are only two courses being offered; he has not been able to appoint faculty, expand courses, or even build boundary walls. Work on a new campus building is halted.

    Why?

    “Since the BJP government has come to power, they have not released a single paisa to us. The approved funds for this campus — meant to serve the backward region — is ₹136 crore; all we have got so far is ₹10 crore, which was released before the BJP won.”

    Nehaal does not mince words. “What should we understand from this? They have become prejudiced.” He pins it on politics, and the difference in nature of regimes is palpable here. The ‘secular government’ of Nitish Kumar — which relied on Muslim votes — has extended all support to the campus, but the Union government, Nehaal claims, has been hostile.

    At the other end of the Hindi heartland lies the small town of Deoband, famous for its influential Islamic seminary.

    At a cloth shop in the bazaar, a group of young men look back at 2017 polls. Shah Alam tells his friends, “We were unnecessarily living with a myth that at 18%, Muslims can decide elections. The majority decides elections. And BJP has shown they don’t need us at all.”

    What has been the impact of this?

    “Secular parties treated us as just a vote-bank, but we at least had leaders to go to. There is no one here to listen to us. Sunwai khatam ho gayi,” replies Alam.

    Adnan owns the cloth shop, and says, “Under the Mudra scheme, I applied for a loan of ₹5 lakh. I have gone to the bank repeatedly. But my application got rejected.”

    But maybe his loan got rejected because it did not meet the criteria? Would it be correct to pin it to religion? He replies, “It is the mindset. The bank official told me — you will not get it. Don’t waste your time.”

    Whether it is indeed, factually, their religious identity which is leading to Adnan’s loan being rejected, Alam’s voice not being heard, Ahmad or Khan being called anti-national, Nisha and Tanweer feeling a sense of distance from their friends, Roshan getting uncomfortable watching television, or Nehaal struggling to get funds for his campus is one part of the story, open to debate. The more important part is that all of them feel that this is discrimination that stems from their religious identity.

    And all of this is leading to a question that Khan — the Kishanganj student — asks bluntly, “I have always felt Indian. But today, I am being forced to ask myself — is this my country?”

    Well, if I may, the Muslims as a community are more to blame themselves for this. Had they not taken to being cajoled by Congress and others as 'vote bank' and basked under the attention they got, they would have not allowed BJP to build a 'niche' for itself. And what is more interesting to note is the fact that if one was to sit in a group of 15-20 people with majority being Muslims, you will find them discussing Islam more than any issue of common discussion. It exists even in the educated lot. How many Hindu or any other Religious group dominated group discussions have their religion as a discussion point at a social platform?

    One has to recall that BJP has arisen from Jana Sangh, a party which was responsible for a 'divide' in Kashmir politics along with Jamaat-i-Islami. That brand of politics reignited the Hindu Muslim divide wherein the mess of Kashmir today was ably created by politics of National and State Governments.

    BJP gaining is the manifestation of the views held by majority of people in India, sadly for Muslims, they have no choice but to look at themselves to understand how this came about.

    But, knowing the trends, they will again do the same mistakes in a misplaced belief of 'security' in face of non-existential 'threats'. Also, they have to understand that it is high time that they recognised themselves as Indians first and foremost and become Indian Muslim and not Muslim Indians. The day they do that, get identified as Indians and not Muslims, that day they will become important for every political party.

    "Is this their country ?"

    Yes, of course it is your country, but do you live in this country as Indian or whether you have adopted some foreign ideology from Middle-East or Western country ? This country has given too many freedom to minorities(including 2nd majority), which is sometimes exploited by some foreign NGO/Fanatics to spread their ideology, which is not a bad thing, but the moment this ideology starts separating our own citizens against the culture & way of life of the land, then it creates divide in the society.

    Muslims in India are no Aliens, they have fought along side Buddhist/Jain/Dharmic people against the Turks, Persians, Mongols & Afghans, but the moment they give more importance to some foreign "culture" Shariat, Wahabism, Caliph, etc this is what creates doubt into the mind of others. Because this 'isms' do not belong to this region and are often used as tools of some foreign powers to control the polity of the country, for example in our neighborhood i.e. Pakistan, they don't know who they are, the ullemas over there have sold their everything for the money of Saudis, they all think that if they follow Wahabism they'll be more pure Muslims than others.

    The Muslims in this country are Hindus/Indian and not Arabs, so stop following all the 'isms' of Arab country, become an Indian/Hindu Muslim and embrace the culture of this land which our ancestor have gifted us.

    There is very dangerous trend going on in India right now where anyone who questions Modi govt. is termed as anti-national, a libtard, an AAPiya or worse a traitor. Amid the claims by the prime minister that he loves criticism of his work it motivates him to do better, the truth is that he and his govt doesn't likes to be questioned and wants to enjoy supreme authority even over the constitutional bodies.
    Only 13% ! That's pathetic really but why does the rest of the remaining 23% of Muslims do not feels patriotism towards their motherland?

    Apart from triple talak which IMHO is a genuine breech of fundamental rights of womens under Indian Constitution everything else is just a farce and must be dealt with stricter law enforcement and crime control policies.
    If the prime minister stays silent on such issues after he promised a better governance...
    Better then the predecessors and favorable vikas of everyone then he is equally responsible.
    That's so true.

    Not only television but also social Media and even WhatsApp helps in shaping a public mindset, lately which had been mostly negative.
    We need to discriminate between Pakistani Muslims and our own Indian Muslims because both are different and should stay that way.

    Nicely summed up. But then, logic is hardly something commonly available. And definitely is not a Fundamental Right or Duty !! :D

    Kerala High Court nullifies woman's marriage with Muslim man after bride's father raises Islamic State angle
    The Kerala High Court has declared the marriage of a woman as 'null and void' in a case that has seen the bride's father claiming that his daughter was converted to Islam at the behest of the Islamic State.

    By Jeemon Jacob |
    May 25, 2017
    [​IMG]
    In an unusual case of alleged conversion and marriage at the behest of the Islamic State, a division bench of the Kerala High Court declared the wedding of a 24-year-old Hindu woman with a Muslim man as void.

    The case took a curious turn with allegations that the woman was forcibly converted to Islam by people or group having affiliation to the Islamic State.

    The Kerala High Court directed the police to conduct a detailed probe into the suspected forced conversions of Hindu women by Islamic State outfits in the state.

    The Kerala High Court bench of Justices Surendra Mohan and Mary Joseph ordered the girl to return to her parent's home. The Kerala High Court declared marriage of Akhila alias Hadia with Shafeen Jahan, a native of Kollam "null and void" on the grounds that bride's parents were "not present or given consent" for the marriage.

    WHAT KERALA HIGH COURT SAID

    The court considered two habeas corpus writs filed by Ashokan Mani of Vaikom and another parent from Cherpulassery in Palakad district.

    "Marriage being the most important decision in her (Akhila)'s life can only be taken with the active involvement of her parents," the Kerala High Court observed.

    "The marriage, which is alleged to have taken place, is a sham and is of no consequence in the eye of law. Her husband has no authority to act as the guardian,'' the court further remarked.

    The Kerala High Court also directed the State Police Chief to conduct departmental inquiry against Perinthalmanna Deputy Superintendent of Police for not investigating the case properly and take appropriate action.

    THE MISSING COMPLAINT

    Ashokan Mani, an ex-serviceman filed Habeas Corpus petition before the Kerala High Court on January 25 last year, when he found that his daughter Akhila was missing from the campus she studied. Akhila was a student of the Bachelor of Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery course in Salem.

    In his petition, Ashokan alleged that his daughter was forcibly converted to Islam and sought the help of the court to find her. Ashokan named two of Akhila's classmates Jaseena Aboobaker and her sister Faseena - residents of Perinthalmanna - as the persons behind her disappearance from the campus under mysterious circumstances.

    Ashokan said in his petition that Akhila and eight other friends including Jaseena and Faseena were staying in a rented house near their college in Salem. They used to visit her friends' home in Perinthalmanna during holidays.

    SUSPICION OF A FATHER

    Ashokan mentioned in his petition that he noticed some behavioural changes in her daughter when came home to attend her grandfather's funeral in December 2015. Ashokan said that Akhila was not ready to perform Hindu rituals.

    On January 6 next year, Ashokan received a phone call from the father of one of Akhila's classmate informing him that his daughter was seen wearing veil and that she was converted to Islam.

    The news was a shock to Ashokan, who suffered a mild heart attack. Akhila was informed about the health condition of her father, but she was allegedly not willing to visit him at that time.

    Later, Jaseena told Ashokan's wife that she would bring Akhila home on a pre-decided date. But, they did not reach home. Ashokan's family, somehow, managed to contact Akhila, who reportedly told them that she was being forcibly held by people including Jaseena and Aboobacker. Ashokan claimed in his petition that those people were engaged in forcible conversion of vulnerable youths of other faiths.

    WHAT AKHILA TOLD POLICE, COURT

    On the complaint by Ashokan, police began probe. Akhila was found but she submitted an affidavit before Perinthalmanna police that she was following Islam since 2012 and had willingly left her home.

    Akhila told the police officials that she joined a course run by Tharbiathul Islam Sabha, Kottackal in Malappuram to learn Islam and shifted her residence to Satyasarani in Manjery - an Islamic Institution, which allegedly promotes conversion in Kerala and is reported to have close connection with Popular Front of India.

    According to her affidavit, Akhila stayed in Aboobacker's home for a brief period. Akhila later shifted to Satyasarani's hostel for girls and completed her course. Satyasarani introduced her to Sainaba from Ernakulam and started staying with her after her father filed Habeas Corpus petition.

    FIRST ORDER OF KERALA HIGH COURT

    Akhila told the court that she was not under any illegal confinement against her free will. Akhila also told the court that she was not willing to go to her father's house. She insisted that she wanted to pursue her Islamic studies at Satyasarani.

    In June last year, the Kerala High Court allowed Akhila to stay with Sainaba.

    Later Akhila informed the court that she had taken admission in Satyasarani and produced records of her admission in the religious institution.

    Consequently, Kerala High Court dismissed the Habeas Corpus petition filed by Ashokan Mani.

    ANOTHER HABEAS CORPUS PETITION

    The June 2016 order of the Kerala High Court should have been the end of the matter. But, ex-soldier Ashokan Mani was not convinced with his daughter's reply. He sensed something fishy.

    Ashokan Mani would keep track of his daughter's movement and developments in her life. As a result, he filed another Habeas Corpus writ two months later.

    This time, Ashokan Mani alleged that her daughter was converted to Islam at the behest of the Islamic State. He feared that Akhila might be taken out of India to join the ranks of Islamic State in Afghanistan.

    Ashokan mentioned about two separate cases of women vanishing from Kerala to join the Islamic State jihadis in Afghanistan after they were converted to Islam and married to Muslim men.

    TWISTS AND TURNS IN KERALA HIGH COURT

    The Kerala High Court, at first, was not impressed with the reference to the Islamic State. The court asked Ashokan's lawyer CK Mohanan to delete the reference to the Islamic State in his petition as it was irrelevant.

    But, Mohanan was insistent and argued that Kerala police were investigating a case of missing 21 persons from the state. They are suspected to have been taken to Afghanistan. A heated exchange took place in the open court between the lawyers and the bench.

    Justices PN Ravindran and Justice Dama Seshadri Naidu slapped ordered contempt proceedings against lawyer Mohanan in 2016. The court pronounced him guilty in the case and sentenced him to three months imprisonment and also imposed a fine of Rs 1,000.

    Ashokan assured the court that he would not engage Mohanan in future. The high court shifted Akhila from the custody of Sainaba to SNV Sadanam, Ernakulam - a ladies' hostel.

    Meanwhile, Akhila alias Hadia got married to Shafeen Jahan of Kollam in December last year. The matter came up in January this year before the Kerala High Court, which was hearing the second Habeas Corpus writ filed by Ahokan.

    Akhila produced marriage certificate issued by Puthur Juma Masjid in Malappuram and marriage registration certificate by local panchayat authorities. But, the Kerala High Court has declared both the marriage and the certificates as invalid.

    This problem is related with SUNNI Muslims. If you look at BHORI Muslims they are mostly EDUCATED, Peace Loving, Business minded and are mostly Pro-India and behave as Indians and are often Anti-Pak. Even majority of Shia Muslims avoid extremism and are mostly pro India. Of these 2 Muslim communities Bhoris behave far more rationally and are therefore more acceptable to society. Even in day to day life if a Muslim buys flat in hsg socy no one likes but if it is Bhori it is somehow accepted.

    It is SUNNI Muslims that always create problems if things are not SUNNAT (not according to the stone age rules as written in their so called Holy Book) and terrorism is one such problem.

    As an adult, the girl has full right over her life. I do not think that the Court has any business in this as long as the woman is an adult legally and is not acting under coercion.

    The Court has to decide on the latter question, if the woman is acting under coercion/false pretence/duress, then obviously court has jurisdiction.

    Having said that, I think that the Kerala Society as a whole has to introspect as to which direction the State wants to head into. Sorry to say, but the history of Kerala is replete with such examples and maximum cases of radicalisation of Muslims is from Kerala. As also public conversions.

    If you look at the only incidents of Rioting during the Khilafat Movement too, it was by the Moplas in Southern Malabar aka modern day Kerala. What happened there?

    Until and unless one takes the steps to accept and understand the truth as it is, this will continue


    Beginning with the year 1920 there occurred in that year in Malabar what is known as the Mopla Rebellion. It was the result of the agitation carried out by two Muslim organizations, the Khuddam-i-Kaba (servants of the Mecca Shrine) and the Central Khilafat Committee. Agitators actually preached the doctrine that India under the British Government was Dar-ul-Harab and that the Muslims must fight against it and if they could not, they must carry out the alternative principle of Hijrat. The Moplas were suddenly carried off their feet by this agitation. The outbreak was essentially a rebellion against the British Government The aim was to establish the kingdom of Islam by overthrowing the British Government. Knives, swords and spears were secretly manufactured, bands of desperadoes collected for an attack on British authority. On 20th August a severe encounter took place between the Moplas and the British forces at Pinmangdi Roads were blocked, telegraph lines cut, and the railway destroyed in a number of places. As soon as the administration had been paralysed, the Moplas declared that Swaraj had been established. A certain Ali Mudaliar was proclaimed Raja, Khilafat flags were flown, and Ernad and Wallurana were declared Khilafat Kingdoms. As a rebellion against the British Government it was quite understandable. But what baffled most was the treatment accorded by the Moplas to the Hindus of Malabar. The Hindus were visited by a dire fate at the hands of the Moplas. Massacres, forcible conversions, desecration of temples, foul outrages upon women, such as ripping open pregnant women, pillage, arson and destruction—in short, all the accompaniments of brutal and unrestrained barbarism, were perpetrated freely by the Moplas upon the Hindus until such time as troops could be hurried to the task of restoring order through a difficult and extensive tract of the country. This was not a Hindu-Moslem riot. This was just a Bartholomew. The number of Hindus who were killed, wounded or converted, is not known. But the number must have been enormous.

    And see how history has been white washed here:


    93 years on, Kerala Muslims say caliphate impractical
    M P Prashanth| TNN | Aug 27, 2014

    KOZHIKODE: Close to a century after violent convulsions gripped north Kerala in the name of a caliphate, descendants of Malabar's Mappila Rebellion leaders denounce the Islamic State gaining ground in west Asia.

    The revolt by Muslims (known in Kerala as Mappilas) was an off-shoot of the Khilafat movement called by Mahatma Gandhi to protest the disbanding of Turkey's Ottoman Caliphate. The Malabar uprising soon turned bloody and brought untold miseries upon the entire region, then part of Madras Presidency.

    Armed with hatchets and swords, they challenged the British army, only to be overpowered in a few months.

    "A parallel government was established by the Mappilas after the British forces withdrew from the areas. The move to arrest Ali Musaliar on August 21 was an immediate con sequence of the revolt," said Musaliar's great grandson Anwar Ibrahim. Musaliar was led the Khilafat movement in Malabar.

    There was an attempt to create a "liberated area" in Malabar. The rebels destroyed police stations and government buildings. The rebellion was crushed by February 1922.

    The British seized seals of the Khilafat "government", passports issued by it, letters to the viceroy and the governor and press releases for newspapers.

    Around 10,000 Muslims were killed in four taluks of Malabar and an equal number was deported to places like the Andamans. There are many who believe the Khilafat movement was a misadventure.

    "Caliphate for all Muslims was not practical in 1921. It is less so in 2014. Self-proclaimed caliph Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi's caliphate will be decimated in no time. There are a few groups among Kerala's Muslims who want to whip up passions by recalling memories of the Malabar rebellion. They have ulterior motives," said Zafar Pandikkad, author of a book on the local history of Pandikkad, epicentre of the rebellion during its last leg.

    Some feel the attempt to draw parallels between the Kerala uprising and the current Iraqi turmoil is misplaced. "Both Hindus and Muslims had taken part in the Khilafat movement in Malabar. Baghdadi's caliphate wants to decimate the Yazidis and Christians," said Anwar. The leaders of Kerala's Khilafat movement insisted on protecting Hindus, he pointed out.

    "People like Brahmadathan Nambooridipad also had to suffer at the hands of British for participating in the movement." However, according to others, the Khilafat movement itself was a regressive idea. "Though the rebel leaders were against harassing Hindus and plundering their wealth, what happened was exactly the opposite," said M Gangadharan, who has studied the rebellion extensively.

    With the viciousness of west Asia's Islamic State evoking strong reactions world over, Malabar seems to have learnt lessons from its own century-old experience.

    What a rosy picture! Because Hindus were killed, reaped and tortured, the narrative is anti-British, but when the Muslims lost more in numbers in Godhra after burning of a train by Muslim mob, it became an anti-Muslim riot! Even the movie Kai Po Che, shied away from addressing the sequence of events correctly. Perhaps an attempt to win an 'International' award by pleading for the 'oppressed Muslims', in an Europe and North America where the effects of the policy is now being felt.

    Am sorry if the sensibilities of few are hurt on this, but this falsification of facts and history has to be fought against.

    Amazing to see how the narrative is being cast in different lights.

    Who is responsible in your case as quoted by you? The Hindus and the Christians of Kerala! No one else.

    Any monotheist religion will have to fight a pluralistic religion for survival. What you see, is the effects of the same.

    Oh Yes .As an adult she can do anything .Infact the fraud Muslim group was also banking on this .Being an adult ,court would grant her wish . But instead court cancelled the marriage .
    She is there as an adult because her parents 24 years of sacrifice and hardwork .At least a phone call is the minimum decency.
    When her father talked to her first time .Do you know what was her wish ?
    She want to become a shepherd in Syria.Courts infact noticed her unusual behaviour .

    The root cause for the problems in malabar is Tippu Sultan and his father Hyder Ali. Then only few muslims were lived in Malabar ,most of them were peaceful and Arab descendents .He was a calss one bigot and converted or killed a lots of Hindus in there .Only Hindu sect that was stood against him was my own community .So his wrath was against us .
    Hindus were even retarded they didnt accepted the forced converted Hindus even after Tipu death .
    But after malabar rebellion Arya Samaj stepped in to there and reconvert majority of them back to Hinduism.Muslims were the slaves like Hindu low castes ,so when an opportunity gets they turned against upper caste Hindus.
    After Tipu death the demography in Malabar become drastically changed .And Muslims always created problems from that date to 1921 until its explosion .Infact 1921 caused the first seeding of RSS .Now RSS ,Sangh Parivar is very strong .

    Agreed .This is our fault .People begins jump up and down when there is a Love Jihad .Around 4000 girls is missing from here .50 of them Brahmins ,200 Nairs ,Around 1000 Ezhavas, Rest are other Hindus and Christian girls .Since then we are careful .Recent case of Nimisha -IS perhaps influenced the decision of court .

    Yawn!

    Not true.
    This divide has existed forever or else PAKISTAN and BANGLADSH would not have been born.

    Any mention of facilities to be provided to majority makes the minority of or country uncomfortable. Alas!




    Not true.
    For very long pests like ZAKIR NAIK were given enough freedom of expression and he deftly utilised the loop holes of Indian constitution to propagate hatred.



    I guess I will have to post mortem the entire article. I will stop here.

    Your argument is valid, but what do you think is the solution to this ? There are also cases where parents force their child to marry against their wishes.

    You can delve in the past and waste your life and blame Tipu sultan all you want but it won't change history. History is there too teach us lessons. Have you thought why Tipu sultan and other muslim conquerors where able to invade and take over India ? Our own weakness and lack of unity is also to be blamed. When there is lack of unity and strength naturally people would exploit it, it is law of nature. Survival of the fittest.

    When you have enslaved a community under caste system, naturally they would rebel at the first chance. British also took advantage of the disunity between Hindus and muslims to colonize India. British used Hindus who where fighting against muslim rulers and other rivals to exterminate mughals and rulers like Tipu sultan. Let me cite a local example in your context, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pazhassi_Raja
    This local ruler was backed by british to fight Tipu Sultan, after British destroyed Tipu Sultan. British got rid of this raja, he must be a local hero but he was just a pawn in British game.

    What we should learn from this is, how to made a strong and united society and religion. If we don't make a strong society future generations will not forgive us.

    Current problems faced by Hinduism are due to certain concepts in Hinduism like caste system. Hindus are in such a large majority in India that hindus should have nothing to fear in India. Or Hindus should face no problem in converting India into a Hindu state. Hinduism by concept is weaker in concept compared to Islam and others.

    This was understood by Guru nanak, so he founded Sikhism.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guru_Nanak

    Sikhism = Hindu culture + unity and equality concept in Islam ....

    Just like a species has to adapt to survive, Hinduism will have to adapt to survive.
