Even after accepting partition of India on communal grounds to fanatic Muslims, Congress leaders remained blind to realities and declared India to be a secular state. They promoted secularism among Hindus, but ushered minorities to remain aloof from the National main stream. Instead of forging equality and unity through one civil rule for all, they created fear in the minorities to suspect Hindus. Directly and indirectly they encouraged minorities to bargain additional privileges to preserve and promote seclusion in the name of religion, language, personal laws, and institutions. They were motivated to increase population and emerge as a distinct vote bank to support so called ‘secular’ Congressmen. Thus minorities have multiplied in population and are separate ethnic groups to influence the formation of Governments at the Centre and States. It is no exaggeration that at the slightest excuse they talk about another partition of the Country and seek support across the borders.
Terrorism targeted against Hindus has bled India since partition. Though stated to be in majority, Hindus are living under perpetual fear of communal violence against their person, society and culture. All this is due to anti- Hindu policy of appeasements followed by Congress leaders headed by one family whose antecedents are shrouded in mysterious controversies.
PCTV Bill 2011
To top it all, now a draconian bill has been drafted under the leadership of UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi that is ready to be tabled in Parliament for approval. It is called Prevention of Communal and Targeted Violence Bill – 2011. If enacted, it will permanently divide Indian society in two communities. The Hindus will be called ‘Others’ (implying community) in the land of their origin. The second segment of Indian Nation will be called Minority community, who enslaved India centuries ago.
To begin with, minorities are identified as Muslims and Christians but more groups to their fold can be added such as Dalits, Buddhists, Jains, Sikhs or anyone if they wish to be detached from Hindus. In other words a time will come when Hindus will be outnumbered by minorities in India. Sonia Gandhi has already said that ‘India is not a Hindu country’ and her choice Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has said that ‘minorities have the first right over resources of the Country’. Their enthusiasm towards destruction of Hindu identities can be gauged from their thoughts and actions regarding destruction of Rama Setu.
The Authors of this Bill
This ill-ominous bill has been the idea of UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi and a coterie close to her. It has been drafted by National Advisory Council (NAC), a nominated body having no constitutional status. The names of the principal members of the drafting and advisory committee are: Najmi Waziri, P.I.Jose, Teesta Setalvad, Farah Naqvi, Abusaleh Shariff, Asgar Ali Engineer, John Dayal, Justice Hosbet Suresh, Kamal Faruqui, Manzoor Alam, Maulana Niaz Farooqui, Ram Puniyani, Shabnam Hashmi, Sister Mary Scaria, Syed Shahabuddin, Aruna Roy, Anu Aga, Farah Naqvi, Harsh Mander, and Maja Daruwala. Almost all of them are Christians, Muslims or rabid anti-Hindu Leftists. From their past actions, most of them seem to have been born with an animus against the Hindu ethos. They are notorious for their hate mongering proclivity against Hindus. It is relevant to say that Arvind Kejariwal, the founder of Aam Admi Party has also been a close associate of Aruna Roy.
The draconian Provisions at Glance
Exceptionally biased provisions of this Bill explained in simple layman language reveal that this bill assumes that Hindus, the majority community of India, termed as ‘Others’, are the culprits and commit atrocities against ‘Groups’ of minority community such as Muslims and Christians. The consequences that flow are:-
- This law is applicable only when the victim is a Muslim or a Christian, a member of minority group. If a case is registered against a Hindu, he has to prove his innocence. A Hindu victimized by communal violence cannot take any benefit. If a Hindu loses property, is humiliated or boycotted, this law would not apply.
- During the trial, the court may issue orders to attach the property of the accused Hindu, but not the property of Muslim or Christian.
- The victim belonging to minority only will be granted financial compensation within 30 days.
- If any Hindu publishes, communicates, disseminates, broadcasts, and advertises by words, either spoken or written, news about communal violence he would be prosecuted for hate propaganda.
- Under this bill, if a Muslim or a Christian complains against any Hindu leader or organization that his/her feelings have been offended, that person/organization would be hauled up.
- Hindus would be prosecuted by ‘Communal Harmony Authority’ to be set up at the state and central levels. The ‘Communal Harmony Authority’ at the state and central levels shall have seven members each, of which four members, including chairman and deputy chairman, should be from the minority communities. Thus Hindus will always be in minority in this body.
- All the crimes mentioned under his law are cognizable and non-bailable for the accused Hindus.
- There will be no limitation of time. It means a ‘Minority’ can reopen all cases against Hindus, all past cases right from 1950 onwards.
- A minority witness giving false statement before National authority CANNOT be prosecuted for giving FALSE evidence against a Hindu.
One sided Secularism with Anti Hindu mindset
It is relevant to mention that UPA Chairperson Sonia (Antonia Maino) Gandhi is a devout, professing Catholic. She is of Italian origin and she is a naturalized citizen of India. At marriage, she insisted that her husband Rajiv Gandhi convert to Christianity and that her children be raised as a Christian/Catholic. Her son Rahul Gandhi (Raul Vinci) is reported to have told the American ambassador Timothy Roemer in 2009 that India is facing a greater terror threat from radical Hindu groups than from Muslim militant 5th columnists. Both, Sonia and Rahul seem to suffer from an acute case of Hindu phobia; their mindset is unwavering in trying to suffocate and suppress Hindus legally in India. The aim of this draconian bill is to achieve that goal. It is also interesting to note that Sonia Maino Gandhi’s advisors and ministers are almost all either Christians or Muslims.
Aimed to disintegrate Hindu Society
Although the stated purpose of the Bill is to address the question of communal violence in the country but the hidden aim is to communalize Indian polity, and create hatred against Hindus so that a vote bank of Muslims and Christians is strengthened for Congress wherein more groups could be added later as and when more Hindus detach themselves from their ancestral faith due to the draconian provisions of the bill and privileges made available to minorities consequent to implementation of this enactment. Naturally all minority institutions including Jamait-e-Ulema are forcing Congress for passing this bill. Congress wants this bill to win 2014 election with ‘Minority’ votes.
Why not to have Uniform Civil Code for all Indians?
Had the Government really been sincere to foster communal harmony; it must have passed Uniform Civil Code for all citizens. The distinction of minority community and majority community could have been automatically eroded.
Besides other repercussions, the passage of this draconian Bill can trigger a new wave of extortion by minority groups against the working and business class of Hindus. This will have colossal negative repercussions for the Indian economy. To avoid lifelong suffering, Hindus shall have no other option than to convert to minority faiths, or flee from India as refugees. Therefore the matter deserves to be taken seriously, understood and discussed to spread awareness.
This bill is downright dangerous for the unity and integrity of India. Hindus must scrutinize and examine the threat emanating from this bill. It is essential that we should wake up from the deep slumber, stop internal squabbles, learn to work in unison, and come up with a solid strategy to get rid of anti-Hindu UPA government. The noose is being tightened on Hindus. The survival of Hindus is at stake. Our future generation will not forgive us if we just succumb under pressure and keep watching from sidelines as passive spectators.
