'Hindutva' - A new kind of Fasicm?

After years of peaceful coexistence of Hindus and Muslims in the Indian subcontinent, the seeds of Hindu-Muslim hatred were sowed during the time of the British colonial rule in India. This divide-and-rule policy of the colonialists has only produced extremists on both sides of the Hindu-Muslim Divide. The misguided ideology of 'Hindutva' (Hindu nationalistic ideology) led to the destruction of the Babri Masjid in Ayodhya and massacre of thousands of innocents in ensuing riots, the most recent in Gujarat, a genocide that can only be ignored by the completely de-sensitized human. 'Hindutva' today has hijacked the Hindu dharma (religion) and its intolerance and extremism is only leading the Indian people towards hate, fear and destruction. 

An Appeal to fellow Indians

Our appeal to 'all' sections of the Indian society, is to denounce extremism in all its forms, whether it be by a Hindu or a Muslim, nay, every human. As the Qurán has guided us to, the way to peaceful co-existence and which is pleasing to God is that of justice, 'moderation', tolerance and kind-hearted dealings with one another. 

Kind words and forgiving of faults are better than charity followed by injury. And God is Rich (free of all wants) and He is most Forbearing. [Holy Qurán 2:263]

There can be no compulsion in matters of religion and it is high time that we take initiatives of building genuine bridges of understanding between the two communities. 

There is no compulsion in religion, for the right way is clearly from the wrong way. Whoever therefore rejects the forces of evil and believes in God, he has taken hold of a support most unfailing, which shall never give way, for God is All Hearing and Knowing. [Holy Qurán 2:256]

We believe this is only possible through sincere attempts by both the common Hindu and Muslim to get rid of antagonistic stereotypes about one another and make efforts to learn each other's philosophies in a dignified dialogues.
