“The classical dance of Bharat Natyam your institute conducted on the annual day was mesmerising and divine. Hat’s off to you for preserving our ancient heritage even after the Islamic Invasion and 200 years of British rule,” this is how I admired and appreciated the management of academy where my six year old daughter learns Bharat Natyam, and left.
Little did I know that the mention of “Islamic Invasion” would offend a lady from ‘minority community’ which one could guess from her dress, so much that she would confront me the next day.
The next day, when I was picking up my daughter from her Bharat Natyam class, the lady charged at me, “Excuse me, you appreciated the classical dances at Annual Day, but why did you say “Islamic Invasion”? “My daughter also learns classical dance,” she added.
Her question provoked me to the hilt. I charged back, “Isn’t it the history that Islamic invaders attacked our land 1,000 years ago? She said, “No”, and then asked a dumber question, “Have you visited Taj Mahal”?
Next, she attacked me ferociously, “you are sick people, because of you the minority feels insecure.”I lost my cool, and reminded her that our country is bleeding.
At this, she started fuming and repeatedly sermonising: “TERROR HAS NO RELIGION, TERROR HAS NO RELIGION.”
“Dear lady, the very moment you shout TERROR HAS NO RELIGION, everyone gets to know which religion you are talking about” I replied.
This heated argument lasted only one and half minutes while she and I were returning.
But it is indicative of a very common problem.
It is part of the strategy built by liberals in India. This is how they build up a pro-terrorism narrative.
1. When a terrorist, who calls himself Jaish-e-Mohammed (meaning: Muhammad’s soldier) is waging war to eliminate cow urine-drinking Hindus (actually KAAFIR), and blast our 44 security forces into pieces, they would start shouting TERROR HAS NO RELIGION.
2. India should not use the word “Islamic Invasion” because Mughals entered our land, after they were given an invitation card. And, Mughals destroyed all our temples and brutalised our people with complete love and care.
3. Muslims have full right to get offended with the mere mention of “Islamic Invasion”, but we should not even react after our security forces and innocent citizens are blasted into pieces by a terrorist calling himself a soldier of Muhammad!
Emotion are running high in our country after Pulwama terror attack. However, this is how a lady, unknown to me, provokes me and justifies TERRORISM.
When would you wake up India?
