Attacks and killings of Hindu activists never retaliated to by anyone

The Left-influenced media and ecosystem has tried to paint the Sangh Parivar, the Modi Government and BJP-RSS as 'intolerant'. The truth is far from it, they are overtolerant. The media lies & blowing out of proportion isolated incidents like Dadri of October 2015 (There was another Dadri incident in June 2014 where a BJP leader was killed, but no one remembers it now) will cause resentment and infuriation among a section of the society. The truth about the guilt of Islamic /Christian /Communist radicals in attacking and killing Hindus and the suffering of the Hindus must be brought out in public. Some additions have been made to an article already compiled at a blog.

3- The RSS office was bombed in Chennai on 8 August 1993 killing 11. Out of these 11, six were full-time pracharaks, very important in RSS, not just ordinary workers. And out of these six, 5 were senior pracharaks. RSS thus lost 11 of its members, including 6 high-level officials. It also injured many RSS workers. But the RSS did not do even one act of revenge.

  4-  In April 1995 the Hindu Munanni office was also bombed in Chennai, Tamil Nadu by Islamic radicals using RDX. Individuals were also killed by Muslim fanatics. In July 1995, a parcel bomb killed the wife of a District President of the Hindu Munnani (i.e. Hindu Front).
 5- Two bombs were planted in RSS HQ in Nagpur in May 2001, both were defused before they exploded.

 6- Three armed Islamic terrorists attacked RSS HQ again on 1 June 2006 and their attack was foiled at the very last moment.

 7- In 1981, Hindu Munnani leader Thirukovilur Sundaram was murdered at R. S. Puram in Coimbatore by Islamic fundamentalists.

 8- In 1994,
Hindu Munnani chief Rajagopalan was also murdered in the state (Tamil Nadu) by Muslims. 6 people got life imprisonment for this. 
  9-  During the Khalistani separatist struggle in Punjab (1981-93), hundreds of RSS and BJP men were killed by the Khalistanis, yet this did not provoke a single act of retaliation. As just two examples, on 25 June, 1988 at Moga 26 RSS volunteers were killed. 22 were injured in an indiscriminate firing in Nehru Park. (Just one link: ) On 17 November 1990, 11 RSS workers were killed in indiscriminate firing in the morning shakha in Dabwali.
  10- When in ca. 1990, and again in 1996, Communist militants started killing RSS men in Kerala, the RSS was very slow to react in kind. The cases of CPI(M) killing RSS and BJP men in Kerala are so many that an entire encyclopedia can be written on that. Just a few cases are being given. Actually, more than 800 RSS men were killed from 1994 to 2002 itself. As just an example 2 RSS men were killed in Kerala on 28May 2010. 

11-. Belgium-based world famous scholar Dr Koenraad Elst has written in his book “BJP vis-à-vis Hindu Resurgence” (Voice of India, 1997): 
“The Islamic bomb attacks on Sangh centres in Chennai and elsewhere, the murders of BJP politicians in UP, Mumbai and elsewhere, they all have not provoked any counter-attacks.  Anti-Hindu governments in Bihar (of Laloo Yadav from 1990-2005) and West Bengal (of Left Front from 1977-2011) have achieved some success in preventing the growth of sizable RSS chapters by means of ruthless intimidation and violence, all without having to fear any RSS retaliation. 
 The mass killing of Hindus in East Bengal in 1971 (Pakistani Army killed 2 million i.e. 20 lakh Hindus in East Bengal and also some other Bengali Muslims when their leader declared that Bangladeshis are un-Islamic and raped at least 2,50,000 Hindu women during the 1971 war) and the constant petty terrorizing of Hindus in Pakistan and Bangladesh to chase them out have not moved Hindus in India to retaliate in any way; they never even talk about it.  By contrast, a single murder by a Hindu, that of Gandhi himself, was enough to throw the Hindutva movement off course for decades.  There is no dearth of Hindu soft-brains who feel guilty for the Ayodhya demolition, and who preach that Hindus should make amends for it.”
12-  In 1996 BJP's Kannur district secretary Panniyan Chandran was killed by alleged CPM cadres in front of his wife. BJP suffered a major setback after the murder of Panniyan Chandran.
13- On 1 Dec 1999 the very popular BJYM Kerala state Vice-President was murdered.  K T Jayakrishnan, a school teacher, was hacked to death on 1 December 1999 in his classroom in front of his students. The Additional Sessions Judge K K Chandra Das  gave the verdict onthe case in Aug 2003, which had created a storm in the state political circles. 5 CPM cadres were given death penalty. 

This was also confirmed by the High Court. The court confirmed the sentences and observed that the murder was committed inside a classroom in front of the students. The accused had not made any attempt to conceal their identities. The Kerala High Court judge said “the accused trespassed into the classroom and translated their evil design into action by committing the murder of K.T. Jayakrishnan in an extremely brutal, grotesque, diabolical, revolting and dastardly manner”. 

CPM activists demonstrated in front of the Sessions Court and High Court after the verdict. They shouted slogans against the judges and even threatened to kill them. This CPM, which gives long lectures to BJP and RSS on honoring court verdicts openly burnt the effigies of the judge throughout the state (Kerala).

All the five convicts submitted their appeal to the Supreme Court against the death penalty. But, in a sudden development, the CPM-led Kerala government replaced the public prosecutor with a weak person. As expected in one of the blackest day in Indian Judiciary the Supreme Court itself acquitted thedaylight murderer accused of Jayakrishnan inspite of many witnesses in a bench consisting of who else but Markendey Katju!

 14-  U Chittaranjan, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA for Bhatkal in Karnataka was shot dead on April 10, 1996 in his house by Islamic radicals. Chittaranjan's murder was the first incident in the State (Karnataka) where an MLA was shot dead. The CBI, which is probing the murder, had not arrested the assailants who shot the BJP MLA while he was watching television at his house in the communally sensitive Bhatkal town, for at least 10 years after his murder. In fact, the CBI made a plea to actually closethe case,which was turned down by the court.

 15-  Dr V Shridhar, the BJP city unit chief of Trichy in Tamil Nadu was murdered on 2 February 1999. 6 activists of the banned Al Umma wereconvicted for this murder. 

16- BJP Medical Wing Secretary Dr Arvind Reddy was murdered inVellore in October 2012. Dr V Arvind Reddy (38), the BJP State Medical Wing Secretary and Indian Medical Association (IMA) Vellore Branch President, was murdered in front of the diabetic clinic owned by him.

17- S. Vellaiyappan, an activist and the Tamil Nadu State Secretary of theHindu Munnani, was murdered near the Muthu Mandapam on the banks of the Palar River behind the New Bus Stand on 2 July 2013.
     A former BJP councillor was also hacked to death in Ramnathpuram in Tamil Nadu on 20 March 2013. A three-member gang killed him in broad daylight in the Paramakudi main bazaar on Tuesday. Police said that K. Murugan (45), former BJP municipal councillor, was returning home for lunch when the gang hurled pipe bombs and hacked him to death. The members escaped from the scene after committing the crime. 

18- Four RSS officials, not ordinary workers, but high level officials (and full time workers, as they call them, pracharaks) were kidnapped on 6 August 1999 in Tripura, held captive for over a year and brutally tortured and killed. 

Those abducted and later declared killed were: kshetra karyavah (zonal general secretary) of West Bengal, Assam and the North-East Shyamal Kanti Sengupta, pracharak working in southern Assam Dinendranath Dey, Agartala vibhag pracharak (area-in-charge) Sudhamay Dutta, and district pracharak Subhankar Chakravarty. They were all abducted from a Vanvasi Kalyan Ashram-run students' hostel in Tripura's Kanchanchhada area. The NLFT confessed its crime.
Of course, this did not provoke a single act of retaliation from anyone. 

 19- Four RSS workers i.e. swayamsewaks were brutally murdered by Islamic radicals at Sonakhali village under Basanti police station in South 24 Pargana district in West Bengal on 10 February 2001. The swayamsevaks had gone there to organise a meeting of RSS members on February 11. RSS vibhag pracharak for North and South 24 Parganas district, Tapan Ghosh, said that five RSS swayamsevaks went to the village to collect coconuts and other eatables from villagers for the meeting as donations. The swayamsevaks were: Abhijit Sardar (Mahakuma Sharirik Pramukh), Patitpaban Naskar (Mandal Karyavah), Sujit Naskar, Anadi Naskar and Bikarna Naskar.

   When they reached near the house of Anwar Hossain Sardar, a local Revolutionary Socialist Party (RSP) activist, in the Village, they were accosted by a gang of armed men led by Anwar.The RSS swayamsevaks were forced to sit on a wooden bench outside the house and then the assailants killed four of them by firing from their guns at pointblank range. In the melee, Bikarna Naskar escaped from their clutches and informed the local RSS office about the murders. The Basanti police station was immediately informed by the RSS office but the police initially did not pay any attention to the complaint. The police arrived in the village five hours after the brutal murders of the four RSS swayamsevaks.

  This is a well-established fact and on the fourth anniversary of that, there was a massive blood donation programorganised at that place where 160 people, including a girl, donated blood.  Of course, no retaliation.
20- In 1998 the Coimbatore blasts killed 58 people, mostly Hindus and majority of them BJP workers. L K Advani was nearly killed in those deadly blasts. To add insult to injury, the then Congress Party chief Sitaram Kesri alleged that RSS did theCoimbatore blasts.

After this, the RSS sued Sitaram kesri and there were reports that he denied having made the allegation. But he then denied having denied the allegationand stuck to his charge. Asked about the reported theft at the home of BJP vice-president O Rajagopal, Kesri said, "An RSS hand is possible in this episode too."
An incident like the deadly Coimbatore blasts nearly killing Advani and killing 58 people, most of whom were BJP workers also were not enough to melt the heart of Sitaram Kesri and the Congress made such a reckless and insensitive statement. Alleging that RSS killed 58 people when RSS did not have anything to do with it and in fact most of the victims were BJP RSS people only, is very inhuman.

  Not just this, the party fully backed this charge. The Tamil Nadu unit president of the partydid not have any melt of heart even after the deadly blasts nearly killing Advani.

But did this not provoke any retaliation from BJP or RSS anywhere in the country, also not on the Congress.

21- On 5 July 2013 nearly 15 RSS activists, other Hindu leaders and activists from Animal Protection Forum were injured in an unexpected attack atMuslim dense Islampur area near HAL at Bangalore. RSS Halasur Nagar Karyavah Anjaneyalu was seriously injured, his condition was critical, said a local RSS leader. Strangely, everything happened in the presence of police on 4 July night.

22- Sunil Kumar, district secretary of the Hindu Aikya Vedi and taluka karyawah of the RSS in Chirayinkeezhu was murdered by Islamic radicals on 9May 2006. He was also the local agent for the BJP's Malayalam mouthpiece Janmabhumi, and was reportedly killed while going to pick up the newspaper bundles at about 5.30 am.

23- Shreeshailam Veettil Vishal (19), was murdered on 17 July 2012 at Chengannur of Alappuzha district in Kerala for which Islamic radicals were arrested.

24- BJP leader, Thimmappa Naik,  was murdered in Karnataka during theAssembly elections held in April-May 2004. There was a massive delay in arresting the culprits.
   All these did not provoke a single act of retaliation.
25- Bajrang Dal activist and leading lawyer Lalit Kumar Jain was murdered in April 2002 in Maharashtra in Bhiwandi. He was a lawyer who would fight cases of the Hindus accused of rioting in Gujarat free of charge. The accused in his murder was also accused in the Mumbai blasts in Mulund in 2003. VHP leader and advocate Manoj Raicha was shot at on 3August 2012 again in Bhiwandi by the same accused. The accused Saquib Nachan was arrested in this connection in August 2012 again. In 2011, Nachan allegedly threatened to eliminate Raicha. The advocate, who is fighting against illegal slaughterhouses in the Konkan region, informed the Thane police about Nachan’s threat and was provided with round-the-clock police cover and yet he was shot at.

 26-  Seven (7) CPI(M) workers were found guilty by the trial court in Kerala on 2 March 2016 for the murder of a RSS official in April 2007. Mavelikkara additional sessions court III awarded life term to seven CPM men and fined Rs 30,000 each for murdering 38-year old RSS Charumood Karyavahak G Chandran.

   The special prosecutor Prathap G Padickal said that seven men - Omanakuttan, 45, Robin,30, Roshan, 32, Pradheep, 30, Preaveen, 30, Sunil, 35, and Kunjumon, 65 - were found guilty on Tuesday by the judge Johnson John. Apart from the life term, the court fined Rs 30,000 each convict that should be donated to the victim's family member's welfare. If convicts fail to pay it, they have to serve additional one year jail.

  The accused were found guilty under section 302 (murder) of IPC and the Arms Act. According to special prosecutor, the incident relating to the case happened in April 20, 2007 at a quarry in Vettiyar at 11.30 pm. Chandran was visiting RSS activists' houses attacked by CPM activists. However, then CPM workers came there as group and attacked Chandran. Following this, Chandran ran away from the spot. But he was brutally killed when he reached in the quarry. The motive behind the murder was then existing political atmosphere in the area. There were 21 wounds on the body of Chandran, who was hacked with country sword and beaten with iron rode and oars. 

 27- In a Facebook post, the son of Kerala CPM leader P Jayarajan described the killing of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh(RSS) worker K Manoj as 'good news'. Jain, the son of CPM's P Jayarajan, posted in Malayalam, "I have been waiting to hear this good news for a long time. Salutations, dear comrades.  Feeling excited." In more posts, Jain justified his comments, saying his father had been attacked 14 years ago by a group of men including Manoj. His father P Jayarajan is the prime accused in thecase of the killing of Manoj.

   "A person who wrote a Facebook post on a murder should be booked. It shows that he could have a role in the murder plan. It is abominable to congratulate killers," state BJP president V Muraleedharan has been quoted as saying.

   Manoj was hacked to death on Monday in Kannur district. Bombs were thrown at his van before a group of people attacked him with swords, the police said. A murder case has been registered against eight people, all allegedly affiliated to the CPM, the police said. The killing took place as BJP President Amit Shah visited Kerala. 
28- Even in 2014, before and after the Lok Sabha polls in West Bengal, BJP workers and supporters were attacked and killed by political rivals. Especially after the 2014 Lok Sabha results, Trinamool Congress (TC) workers attacked the BJP, the same way that the Left Front had ruthlessly attacked RSS and BJP by violence from 1977 to 2011 and prevented the growth of a sizeable RSS chapter in West Bengal. As just one example, 22 BJP supporters were attacked by Trinamool Congress workers in West Bengal one day after Narendra Modi took oath as Prime Minister.

   After some BJP supporters celebrated during Narendra Modi's oath-taking ceremony on Monday 26 May 2014, at Halder Gheriin Sandeshkhaliblock II in North 24- Parganas, Trinamool workers attacked them on Tuesday morning and injured about 22 BJP men. A policeman was also injured during the attack on the BJP supporters. Police said that 22 people were injured. The villagers named some of the attackers, Aklhtar Mollah, Majid Mollah, Karbullah, who are allegedly criminals now siding with Trinamool Congress. 
The Hindu also reported this incident. BJP candidate Sameek Bhattacharya, who got nearly 2.5 lakh votes in the Basirhat constituency, said in Sandeshkhali Block II booth the BJP defeated the TMC. So, the villagers or the voters were targeted. “Just because people voted for us, TMC workers started threatening them and finally they opened fire, severely injuring many,” he said.

 There were more attacks on the BJP workers within a few days by Trinamool Congress cadres. With the saffron warning falling on deaf ears, the ruling TMC mounted more attacks on the BJP workers, this time ransacking their houses and firing at them at Jamuria in Burdwan district. Similar attacks also took place at Toofanganj in Coochbehar district in far off North Bengal, sources said. Jamuria falls under Asansol parliamentary constituency from where BJP’s Babul Supriyo won in the general elections defeating TMC’s labour leader Dola Sen by more than 70,000 votes. The attacks seemed to come as the ruling outfit’s response to the voters’ decision to support Supriyo. Bullets were recovered from the spot sources said adding the BJP workers’ houses were shattered as “we had worked in the elections for the BJP.” A number of villagers had fled their houses fearing more such attacks. 

 29-  In April 2014, two BJP offices were attacked in Manipur within 2 days by armed persons who were members of the National Socialist Council of Nagalim (Isak-Muivah) i.e. NSCN-IM.

  30- In April 2013, Islamic radicals carried out a bomb blast at BJP's Bangalore office. 14 Islamic radicals were arrested for it which injured 18 people. The blast was caused by a bomb placed in a two-wheeler.The 14th person arrested for it is also a suspect in the cases of planting a pipe bomb targeting BJP leader L K Advani and murders of Sangh Parivar leaders in Salem and Vellore. 

 31- Secretary of Hindu Munnani's Tiruvallur district unit, K P S Suresh Kumar was killed by Islamic radicals on 18 June 2014. 16 Muslims were arrested for this with links to the dreaded Al-Umma which carried out the 1998 Coimbatore blasts. A gang set upon Suresh Kumar outside his shop at Ambattur and hacked him to death. He sustained more than a dozen serious injuries, including a deep cut to the mouth, when the gang attacked him.

32- In July 2014, a Hindu Munnani leader from Tirunelveli in Tamil Nadu was murdered. 38-year old Jeevaraj was murdered during wee hours in front of his house at Sankarankoil near Tirunelveli by three men,  police said. Jeevaraj was a former town secretary of the Hindu Munnani. The incident occurred when he was having a chat with a few others in front of his house at Pattathur past midnight. Police said investigation revealed that the three persons used chilli powder so that Jeevaraj could not escape from there before they attacked him with sickles. He suffered cuts on the head and shoulder and died on the spot.

33 - In May & June 2014, at least 3 top BJP leaders were killed in Uttar Pradesh. On 15 June 2014, a BJP leader's body was found in a car on the Highway. The body of Rakesh Rastogi, 40, the divisional vice-president of BJP's Nainital unit, was found tied with a nylon rope, leading to suspicion that he had been murdered, police said. BJP leader Vijay Pandit was shot dead in Dadri area of Greater Noida, while Om Veer was killed in Muzaffarnagar, just a few days before this. 

34- 2 VHP leaders were killed in Tanda in Ambedkar Nagar district in Uttar Pradesh in March and December 2013 by Islamic radicals. According to official sources, three unidentified gunmen came to the chemist shop of the VHP leader Ram Mohan Gupta in Tanda town and fired three bullets from point blank range on 5 Dec 2013. Locals immediately took Gupta to the district hospital where doctors declared him dead on arrival. In March 2013, Ram Mohan Gupta's uncle, Ram Babu Gupta — also a VHP leader — was killed in a similar fashion. 

35- A good article which contains a compilation of attacks and killings of Hindus in Tamil Nadu and Kerala by Muslim fanatics which is a must-read can be got by opening the link below.

In 1982, Badsha, who would later become a powerful Islamist leader, made an attack on a group of Hindu leaders returning from a meeting at Coimbatore. Two years later, on 18-7-1984, in full public view at Madurai railway station, the same Badsha attacked Rama.Gopalan, a prominent Hindu leader of Hindu Front, a vocal Hindu organization that combated conversions and Dravidianist propaganda. Though Badsha was caught red-handed, he could not be convicted. This gave the Islamist forces their first taste of victory over the judicial system in Tamil Nadu and provided a profitable lesson in using the Dravidian polity to their advantage. 

   In 1986, the first Islamic terrorist organization in the region – the All India Jihad Council (AIJC) was formed. After this the attacks started becoming virulent and systematic. On 30-Aug-1989, Veera Ganesh, a prominent Hindu Front worker, was killed. Then on 05-Sep-1991, Veera Shiva, another Hindu Front functionary was killed. All these killings happened in and around Coimbatore –the commercial hub of Tamil Nadu.
 In the period between 1989 and 1997, 42 Hindus had been murdered in Coimbatore region by Islamists. Some were random killing of Hindus to ‘instill fear’ like the killing of five Hindus in one day (On 2 September 1997) and many were targeted executions of Hindu activists. The organization that was doing these murders was Al-Ummah. Resolutely ignoring all IB warnings on 28th January 1997 Badsha and four others were released from Coimbatore jail by DMK regime following its decision to withdraw the TADA cases.

  36- To give some other examples of Hindu leaders killed in Tamil Nadu, Hindu Munnani Rameshwaram secretary 55-year-old Nambu alias Kuttainambu was found dead with injuries in the head and chest caused by a boulder on 8 July 2013, Hindu Munnani Tenkasi town secretary Kumar Pandian was killed in Tenkasi inDecember 2006

   37- In October 2015, an anti-cow slaughter activist, 29-year old Prashant Poojary in Karnataka was killed by Muslims in Mangaluru district's Moodbidri town. The attack happened at 7.30am on 9 October 2015 while he was bringing fresh flowers to his shop. Six miscreants on three two-wheelers swooped down on him with lethal weapons and attacked him. Prashant, a member of the Bajrang Dal, was seriously injured and rushed to a private hospital in Mangaluru. He succumbed to severe injuries to the chest and abdomen. According to sources, the victim named three attackers before he died. 

 38- Two BJP leaders of Gujarat were killed by fanatic Muslims in Bharuch in November 2015. 7 were arrested for their killing. The ATS said that it had unravelled the conspiracy behind murders of Shirish Bangali, former BJP president of Bharuch district and senior RSS member, and Pragnesh Mistry, general secretary of the Bharatiya Janta Yuva Morcha of Bharuch district on 2 Nov 2015, by arresting seven persons.

  39- Two VHP leaders from Amreli, Gujarat were killed by Muslims in December 2013. Murder of Gundran village sarpanch Bharatbhai Khuman and his brother and Liliya taluka rural president of VHP Ajitbhai Khuman shocked the locals in rural Amreli district.  Police booked Mohammad Nuru, Imran Mohammad, Salim Abdul, Khalid Mohammad, Dinu Bhikhu, Usman Nuru, Hakim Nuru, Sumal Abdul, Yunus Munu, Islamil alias Munu Yunus and others for the double murder. 

 40- On 8 October 2013, terrorist of the dreaded Al-Umma Fakruddin spilled the beans. In a shocking revelation, Fakruddin, who was arrested by Tamil Nadu Police on 4 October 2013 confessed to his role in the murders of all five Sangh Parivar leaders in Tamil Nadu during the previous 18 months. He said the leaders of the Hindu outfits were murdered by him in association with Panna Ismail and Bilal Malik. Ismail and Malik were held from Puttur in Andhra Pradesh in a joint operation on 5 October 2013 by the Chennai Police and commandoes of Andhra Pradesh Police. All three were members of the dreaded al-Ummah, a banned organisation. Sources in the Intelligence Bureau said Fakruddin told police during interrogation that he had plans to murder Ram Gopalan, the octogenarian leader of the Hindu Munnani and RR Gopaljee, the young organiser of the VHP. Fakruddin is reported to have told the police, that he along with Bilal and Ismail murdered S Vellaiyappan (State Secretary, Hindu Munnani on July 1, 2013), V Ramesh (State BJP Secretary, July 19, 2013), V Arvind Reddy (BJP's medical wing secretary, October 23, 2012), B Suresh Kumar (BJP leader, June 26, 2013), and Murugan (BJP leader, March 19, 2013). 

41- On 25 Feb 2016, a VHP leader of Agra who was a Dalit, Arun Mahaur was killed. 5 Muslims were arrested for this. He was the Agra city unit Vice-President of the VHP.

   The examples quoted above are just a few out of hundreds.

   Belgium-based world-famous scholar Dr Koenraad Elst has written:You wouldn’t guess it from their polished convent-school English, their trendy terminology, or their sanctimoniousness, but the likes of Romila Thapar, Irfan Habib or Gyanendra Pandey have blood on their hands.  The wave of Muslim violence after the Ayodhya demolition (and the boomerang of police repression and Shiv Sena retaliation) was at least partly due to the disinformation by supposed experts who denied that the disputed building had a violent iconoclastic prehistory, and implied that Hindus can get away with concocted history in their attacks on innocent mosques.  This disinformation gave Muslim militants the sense of justification needed to mount a “revenge” operation and to mobilize decent Muslims for acts of violence which they never would have committed if they had known the truth about Islam’s guilt in Ayodhya.”
   Bhure Lal, former IAS officer who had also served in the Army in Vigilance Commission and is a highly respected expert wrote in his book “The Monstrous face of ISI” (published in early 2000 just after Kargil) on pp 44-45-
 ”The ISI resorts to the following:
…5-Infiltrate and capture mass media and identify pro-Islamic newspapers and asking them to write pro-Pakistani and pro-Islamic articles.
 6-Spreading disinformation through media that Indian Muslims are victimized.
 7-Indentifying Indian politicians who thrive on Bangladeshi Muslim vote bank so that they can be protected against police and other administrative action…
12- The agency had set up a ‘disinformation’ cell and planted ‘stories’ designed to denigrate India. The ISI has funds placed at its disposal to manipulate news. …
15-The ISI employed tens of thousands of agents, “including at least every other newspaper reporter”
      Here a couple of things do come to mind. The media keeps on instigating Muslims as ‘victims’ repeatedly raising the Babri demolition, and the post-Godhra riots. It can be seen many times that terrorists like Hafiz Saeed (the alleged mastermind of 26/11) keeps saying “Muslims will avenge Babri demolition, post-Godhra, Samjhauta killings”. A large part of the blame here goes to the Indian media. It is an established fact that before 6 Dec 1992, 37 temples were demolished in (Indian) Kashmir. After 6 Dec, at least 160 temples were demolished in Kashmir under Indian control. Here we will not even talk about the hundreds of temples demolished in Pakistan and Bangladesh right since 1947, and especially after 6 Dec 1992. Weren’t these ‘enough’ to avenge one Babri demolition? Had the media repeatedly raised these facts, of 200 temples demolished in Kashmir before and after 6 Dec, and hundreds in Pakistan and Bangladesh, the sense of infuriation among the Muslims would  have been much less. It is not that there would have been no sense of infuriation. Because the terrorists who attack and kill do so thinking that it is their duty to 'convert or kill' all non-Muslims, and specially idol-worshipping and worshipping more than 1 God (polytheism) are unforgivable sins. Hindus who are idolators and polytheists are to be severally crushed, according to this ideology. But ordinary Muslims are not terrorists, and their sense of infuriation would have been much less.

    As a matter of fact, after that in March 1993 occurred the terrible Mumbai bomb blasts which killed 257 people, injured many more and inflicted damage worth hundreds of crores. Since no one was killed in Babri demolition (except the karsewaks), a structure that was anyway long-abandoned by Muslims in 1934, which was on a sacred Hindu site, wasn’t this more than enough revenge? Actually seen in the correct context, Babri demolition itself was absolutely nothing Muslims should have had infuriation about had they truly known the reality- as Koenraad Elst said. But here it is media which is guilty of reporting inflammatorily by needlessly infuriating Muslims even more. As for the post-Godhra riots, the less said the better. The media truly has blood on its hands because of its one-sided and inflammatory reporting of Godhra and after.   
   There will be another article on the attacks and killings of Hindus not associated with any Hindu organisation. Had the media reported all that, there would have been a lesser sense of infuriation among the Muslims, and the tolerance of the Hindu organisations been known, as to how much restraint the RSS, and other Hindu organisations kept despite losing so many of their cadres and being so unfairly targeted all along.
