Remember 30th July night when we were sleeping in our homes two Hindu Lawyers Anand Grover and Prashant Bhushan of their own knocked at residence of a Judge of the Supreme Court to make last ditch effort to save Yaqub and for the first time in the history of Supreme Court was opened at 3 am at night to hear this petition.
Justice Srikrishna was a Hindu, Rajdeep Sardesai, Barkha Dutt, were in the forefront to report atrocities on Muslim during Gujarat riots in 2002. Rajdeep was even attacked by VHP goons near Ahmedabad. Teesta Setalvad is Hindu from Gujrati family. During Bombay riots when Police was actively supporting rioters, it was Rajdeep then editor of Times of India Bombay edition who exposed this unholy alliance. When a member of Shiv Sena Madhukar Sarpotdar who was caught by Indian Army, with weapons pistol and live cartridge, it was Rajdeep who wrote editorial on the front page of The Times of India protesting this move.
Even during 1992-93 riots in Bombay and 2002 riots was not in essence a Hindu Muslim riots it was a war let loose on Muslims by right wings extremist Hindu organisations for their POLITICAL GAIN.
A man dreamt for becoming Prime Minister organised a Rath Yatra filling India with blood and dead bodies.
Ordinary peace loving Hindus have nothing to do with it, as in population of 75 crores only three to five lacs congregated Ayodhya in December 1992.
Please also note that 99.99% of the people who signed mercy petition to save Yaqub Memons were Hindu and two Raam Jethmalani and Shatrughan Sinha were from BJP. Hence I have no hesitation to say from bottom of my heart that Mera Bharat is really Mahan.
PLEASE MAINTAIN THE PEACE AMONGST YOU.
Surah: 13 : ar-Ra`d, Verse: 24 –
سَلَـٰمٌ عَلَيْكُم بِمَا صَبَرْتُمْۚ فَنِعْمَ عُقْبَى ٱلدَّارِ
“Peace be upon you for what you patiently endured. And excellent is the final home.”
کہیں گے کہ تم پر سلامتی ہو، صبر کے بدلے، کیا ہی اچھا (بدلہ) ہے اس دار آخرت کا
(वे कहेंगे) “तुमपर सलाम है उसके बदले में जो तुमने धैर्य से काम लिया।” अतः क्या ही अच्छा परिणाम है आख़िरत के घर का!
Please maintain calm and peace. This is not a Hindu-Muslim issue.
Kundan Srivastava would also like to urge everyone, Please maintain quiet and peace. This is not a Hindu-Muslim issue and Terrorism has no Religions.
