Crocodile tears
The statements given by leaders of Congress, BJP, RSS and other parties before the Liberhan Commission, enquiring into the Babri Masjid demolition case, show that effort is being made to give the impression that everybody is innocent in this sensitive matter. The way in which the former Prime Minister, Narasimha Rao, tried to prove himself innocent before the commission recently is definitely a moment gives the general impression that he was a Prime Minister who was helpless and powerless because protecting the Babri Masjid was beyond his power.

The way in which the former prime minister expressed his inability for stationing and deployment of paramilitary forces and timely action being taken by them also proves that he was unfit for the post of prime ministership. He has tried his best to save himself and put the entire responsibility for the demolition of Babri Masjid on the BJP government of U.P. Whatever statements given by leaders of different parties so far give the impression that all the leaders, including those of BJP and RSS, are sorry for the demolition of Babri Masjid. Even the present Home Minister Advani, who took out ‘Rath Yatra’ about the Babri Masjid dispute, shed crocodile tears while expressing his regret and sorrow over the destruction of Babri Masjid, before the commission. But the irony is that when the Prime Minister of the country declares himself helpless and powerless in solving a sensitive problem, what else can be expected from him? Ignoring the statements of other leaders, the statement of former Prime Minister, Narasimsha Rao is important because at that time he was the country’s Prime Minister. It was already said of Narasimha Rao that he needs too much time for taking a decision. In the case of Babri Masjid demolition also his lack of farsightedness and incompetence in taking a decision has made such a mess of Babri Masjid dispute which has become a running soar for the country. The helplessness and inability expressed by the former prime minister also proves that his abdication from the post of prime ministership was very useful for the country because had he continued as prime minister, heaven knows how many more crises the country would have to face because of his helplessness, powerlessness and lack of competence.

The way in which leaders playing an important role in the demolition of Babri Masjid are shedding crocodile tears before the Liberhan Commission is definitely a matter of concern because on one side they speak the language of moderation before the commission but on the other side, they use harsh language on the problem of Babri Masjid when they are out of the commission’s bounds.

Who is responsible for demolition of Babri Masjid will be decided by the Librhan Commission in its report. Congress leaders, together with Narasimha Rao, are responsible for demolition of Babri Masjid who are wearing the masque of secularism. But Congress cannot escape from its responsibility because if BJP has totally ignored the court, Congress also has knocked the confidence of Muslims and injured their feelings. That’s the reason for Muslims drifting away from Congress because even today there are communal leaders in Congress who are donning the masque of secularism and who want to use Muslims as vote banks. But Muslims have told the Congressmen their worth and the day is not far off when self-seeking Muslim leaders, who are bartering their conscience, will have an idea of their worth. (Editorial, Daily Awam, Delhi).


Repenting at leisure
New Delhi: Pakistani classical musician of Patiala Gharana, Asad Amaanat Khan, has said that now he is feeling sorry for not accepting Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s offer made to him twenty-four years ago for returning to India.

Khan said that Mr Vajpayee had made this offer in 1979 when he had gone to Pakistan as India’s foreign minister. But, he said, he did not accept this offer at the time because of his love for Pakistan. According to the daily Nawa-e-Waqt, Khan said in Multan that in Pakistan classical music has no value. It was his contention that ‘people who are very successful in the business of music here say that they never learnt music before’. He said that Pakistan TV is to be blamed for all this. He added that now he is compelled to leave Pakistan (Rashtriya Sahara, Delhi ).


Deoband Taj Mahal
I was surprised to read the news in Qaumi Awaz that a ‘Taj Mahal’ is under construction at Deoband under the auspices of Maulana Asad Madani. May I dare ask the respected Maulana and his supporters the purpose of this expenditure? What is the sense in building this 50,000 capacity mosque made of marble in a town of more or less than a hundred thousand inhabitants which also includes a large number of our Hindu compatriots?

For the first time differences cropped up in 1926 under the leadership of Maulana Qari Mohammad Tayyab as a result of which Allma Anwar Shah Kashmiri and Shaikul Islam Maulana Shabbir Ahmad Usmani went to Dhabol, Surat. Islam has described differences of opinion among Ulama in matters of the interpretation of laws as good for the Ummah. The compiler writes in the biography of Allama Anwar Shah Kashmiri: ‘undoubtedly, the differences amongst the followers of Mohammad (pbuh) can prove to be a blessing, provided that the people having differences are sincere and pious. It is gathered from the study of history that differences based on good intentions result in the form of progress and improvement of common objectives. The differences among these learned people strengthened the foundations of two great seminaries. The epoch-making incident in Darul Uloom took place in 1980 after the centenary conference when Maulana Asad Madani foiled the attempt of Maulana Mohammad Salim Qasmi to become rector by muscle power. Undoubtedly we are also opposed to hereditary vicegerency but how can the use of crores of rupees received in the name of the old Darul Uloom, Deoband, be justified when there are innumerable Muslim schools and madrasas whose mere appearance narrates the story of their miserable conditions.

Can spending eight crores of rupees in any mosque be permissible when many other troubles and problems of Muslims in India do not permit it? I invite all Ulama of India, including Hazrat Maulana Asad Madani, if they would like to say any thing for the purpose of clarification.

What an irony that only the third generation of Shaikhul Islam Maulana Husain Ahmad Madani, head of the ‘Reshmi Roomal’ movement, has been overtaken by power and pelf, and knowledge and learning have bade goodbye to the fifth generation of Maulana Qasim Nanotwi, leader of Shamli and founder of Darul Uloom, Deoband, who rejected the second ‘lungi’ saying: ‘who will be accountable to Allah for this’ (extravagance). Lucre and wealth have so much overtaken lives of his fifth generation that their residences have became rivals to Taj Mahal (letter of Maulavi Muhammad Fahimuddin of Delhi to the editor, Qaumi Awaz).


Unjustified linkage
Meerut: Maj. Gen. S.D. Mohanti, general officer commanding, UP Region, has said that it is wrong to associate anti-national organizations with any religion because it hurts the unity of the country and communal goodwill. Talking to mediamen he said that people involved in anti-national activities have neither any caste nor any creed. Therefore, it is not at all justified to call it Islamic or un-Islamic. He said that by such propaganda, minorities in particular are targeted. It is not at all proper to say that every Muslim is ISI agent or traitor.

Gen Mohanti, who had just met top officials of the police and administration of Meerut, Moradabad, Bareilly and thirteen districts of Agra Division included in the Meerut sub-area, said that ISI’s activities in the country can be rooted out with joint efforts of the army and the people. He said that a citizen is as much responsible for the country’s security as the army and joint efforts of both can rid the country of terrorism. He said that special steps have been taken to check ISI’s activities in all the important cantonments of the country.

Gen Mohanti said that the country does not face any danger from Pakistan because India is not only five times bigger than Pakistan but the Indian army enjoys the honour of being the army of a democratic country which is also far more powerful (Rashtriya Sahara, Delhi).
