GUEST EDITORIAL: Muslims and secular Hindus will not give safe exit to Narendra Modi

By Kaleem Kawaja

In recent weeks some Muslim activists have made statements requesting Narendra Modi to consider the plight and backwardness of Indian Muslims and do something about it. That is very insulting to the 150 million Indian Muslims who have faced continual brutalities for 30 plus years at the hands of BJP. It is insulting for the entire Muslim community of Gujarat that has faced brutal deaths of 2000 Muslims, police and govt brutalities for 11 years in various aspects of life.

Some other Muslim activists are saying that if Modi apologizes to Muslims and retires from public life Muslims will pardon him and let him rehabilitate himself in society.

Why are these Muslim activists making such statements and on whose behalf are they speaking?

Modi has committed horrible crimes against humanity; he must be brought to trial before a court in India and given appropriate punishment according to the laws of India. Why should Modi not be tried and punished like his henchmen Maya Kodani and Babu Bajrangi? His crimes are more severe than those of these two criminals.

All over the world many oppressor rulers when they fell out of power have been tried and punished. Hitler, Mussolini, top Nazi generals and leaders were tried in Nuremberg at the end of WW II and punished. Saddam Hussain was tried and punished. President Gen Pinochet of Chile was tried and punished.

Why should Modi be given a safe exit and pardon, why not tried and punished like other murderers like him.

The people of India did not give safe exit to Afzal Guru or Dawood Ibrahim or Tiger Memon. Sikhs did not give safe exit to those who masterminded the murderers of the 1984 genocide of Sikhs. Why should we give safe exit to Modi?

The answer is that Indian Muslims and the large number of secular Hindus and Indians will not give safe exit to Modi. We will wait and keep on banging on the doors of India's justice system until Modi is tried in an Indian court and punished appropriately.

  1. On whose behalf the author is speaking ? Under congress more muslims have been killed. The messiah of muslims Mulla Yum Yadav is responsible for the biggest riots in recent history in India and yet people like this so called author asks Muslims to vote for so called secular parties which actually exploits muslims. Who is this author to determine who is secular and who is communal. Hindu by nature is secular so no need to use oxymoron terms like Secular Hindu. He personally may give vote to Muslim league but has no right to tell Hindus or for that matter Indian muslims whom to vote and whom not to. Worthless article by a shameless author !
