Incitement to hatred


After reading following article, I still didn’t understand why few people are so blinded that they believe, what ever is happening is a fault of government and its foreign policy. I believe in democracy and we are very fortunate that we are living in one of most democratic state in world. Democracy gives a right to every one to express their feelings and anger, raise their voice. Democracy give every one chance to elect and form a government and their representative, whom they think will and can work towards the betterment of society and help them to feel secure. Main point in democracy is how majority treats minority, how powerfully people treats power less people. So far I know UK does treat monitory very well, we had given every right to them, they are first class citizen of this country ( we don’t treat them as a second class citizen).

If we look to some countries and see how people get treated in their democracy specially minorities I am sure people will be shocked to know about it. Some of the British Muslim are saying that they are not happy with the policies of government, OK fair enough but you don’t bomb the whole country because you not happy with few elected members of parliaments and their decision.

I tried to answer few questions in this article which is in my opnion is not correct and should be answered.

Incitement to hatred

 

Politicians and the media are creating an ominous climate by exploiting fear and ignorance of Muslims

Soumaya Ghannoushi

Sinking in the Iraqi quagmire and lost in the Afghan labyrinth, Tony Blair turns on Muslims at home, demanding they clear up the mess he and his neocon allies have created.

How can you say that Tony Blair and his allies created a mess? We were celebrating Olympic news on 6th of July and on 7th of July we were moaning. Remember? Some extremist youths bombed London killed more than 50 innocent’s people, it’s not the fault of Tony Blair or its government allies as they didn’t attacked any UK citizens. When you kills innocents then you are solely responsible for backlash and punishment not some one else. Since that London bombing the only thing I heard from Muslims leaders that it’s a fault of UK government policies.

Ok say for a time being if I agree with your arguments about Foreign Policy will you be able to justify me London bombing? Nope because you can’t bomb your own place and kill innocents just because you not agreed of policies of your own government. For example I am sure loads of young’s people have arguments with their parents and not agreed with their parent’s rules and regulations about home, but they don’t bomb their own house and kill their own parents? Do they?

Same rule apply with country policy, when government make policies they made by taking whole picture in their mind including domestic, international and security issues and internal threat. If these young generation Muslims are not agreed with policies then they should show their protest in peace full manner and most important in a democratic way, try to integrate with society and choose their true representative in elections. No one can justify killing of innocents on the name of government policies. These acts of terrorism make much harder for any government to change any policies.

 

Instead of facing up to their moral and political responsibility for combating ignorance, our politicians are doing the reverse. They are indulging in scaremongering, playing on the public’s fears and exploiting people’s lack of familiarity with the Muslim world. It is thus hardly surprising that 53% of Britons now see Islam as a problem.

Well politicians are doing right thing, they are trying hard to let the people of other faith and religion understand your faith and religion (Islam). But when some of your leaders published public letter demanding special treatments, it make difficult for government to make other religious group understand. Because we live in multicultural society government can not give you any special treatment every one is equal. Like for example I remember some time in august your leader Dr Syed Aziz Pasha, secretary general of the Union of Muslim Organisations of the UK and Ireland, demanded special holidays for important days in their two main religious festivals – Ramadan and Eid-ul-Adha – should be made public holidays for followers of the faith and want to implement Sharia Law for their family matters.

 

How you can think of Sharia Law? We got constitution so we have to follow that. You can’t make your own rule and follow that and challenge the main constitution. We live in democratic country and in democratic country or even in non democratic country you can not challenge the entity of country like constitution.

 

Exact line

‘We told her (Communities Secretary Ruth Kelly) if you give us religious rights, we will be in a better position to convince young people that they are being treated equally along with other citizens.’

Show some maturity and Act like a leader of your community and condemned the killings and bombing civilians place with out putting your own political agenda on first place at least for once. Help this government to help you and serve in proper way.

 

It’s Just My Opinion. Any One Agree?

  1. Gee, how did I know the article was written for the Guardian? I think all of your points are quite valid, Eka. However, there is one problem. Those who pose these protests do not want a solution – they want justification for their actions and so they invent injuries and slights that only exist in their mind. You cannot change someone who does not want to change. People who choose to take on the mantle of victim do not want you to empower them to become accountable and responsible.

    Well done on the point by point – you exposed the fallacy of the argument.

  2. On Democracy working – yes perhaps it works well in a literate society. In hamare des mein – Chief Ministers are attempting to buy voters by distributing TV Sets, Bicycles, Cash. All in the name of Garibi Hatao. BUT – they refuse to invest in Primary Education and meaningful employment schemes….

    The day is not far when – western countries where people are making a hue and cry about equality will ask for reciprocation from Muslim Countries. In SAUDI, can outsiders even practice their faith openly???

  3. Added to the TV sets, one moron from the opposition actually promised everone a free car if they win the LOCAL BODY elections…. 😐
