In The Name of Secularism

My wife offered Puja to the Hindu God and brought Prashad (sweets) and flowers to distribute among our known neighbours. There a was Muslim neighbour who refused to accept it for fear of being branded as a Kafeer (a  non-believer of Islam).My wife got hurt and left the place silently. 

On 20th, Eid festival was celebrated. Our Muslim neighbours enjoyed the festival with colours. They came to my home and begged money for organising a musical night with the trust on me that I do not hate them and inspired them to held their head high. I generously contributed much to the pleasure of the fund raisers.

The same day in Red Road of Calcutta, Mamata Bannerjee, the TMC supremo and chief minister wearing a Muslim dress joined the Namaz offered by a million Muslims and in her reply she loudly read out the long list of welfare measures she initiated for Muslims residing in  West Bengal. She was greeted by the crowd. Before she took the dais, a leading Muslim cleric lambasted her for doing nothing concrete for local Muslim population except wide range publicity. The crowd loudly greeted the cleric too. 

The Muslim population residing in Burma was massacred for their alleged anti-national attitude and activities. Similarly, migrant Muslim people in North Eastern Indian land for Boro tribes of Assam is subjected to brutality similar to that of Burma for the same reasons. 

The same sect of people inhabiting in bordering districts of West Bengal, have been forced to undertake smuggling racket in complete dismay of the Indian government and its armed forces. The counterfeit Indian currency and smuggling of tones of Indian coins to Bangladesh has created crisis in the country. Lets talk less about Pakistan. 

From the facts narrated above, it reveals that our Muslim brothers and sisters do not believe in secularism and uniform law of the land. Their dissatisfaction will diminish with the concur of a non-Muslim country like India to install a Taliban raj in place of a secular state and its government run by all faiths.
