The ‘Hijab’ controversy in Karnataka, India

***

The Hijab, as most of us know it, is a head to toe loose body covering, worn by Muslim women. …Nowadays there seem to be ‘shorter’ versions, as well, as seen in (some) colleges in Karnataka.

All matter in ‘block’ letters added later, please.

Forgive me, folks, I have egg on my face. …Had not known, earlier, the difference between a Hijab, which covers the head, shoulders, chest; and the Burkha, a full covering.

Before I go further, let me, in my own forthright way, state that I like women well covered, esp because I am a priest having taken vows.

This is not constraining Women or their Freedom. For me, Women are just too beautiful.

Indian Custom has rules on How to serve (food) to a Sadhu/Sannyasi; WHO will serve (preferably Not young women), HOW to serve (the attire has to be modest).

The idea is Not to disturb the mind, vis a vis 1 Corinthians 11:2-16. In many cases they have made a Mockery of this.

If anybody thinks a Priest/Sannyasi/Fakir/Male is made of Wood, let them think again. He most probably will not jump up and Grab you, but Do not make him Waste his energy on working on this.

[From here You have the original post, with just 1 change: about catholic nuns.]

Now the ‘controvery,’ as I see it, is because the Radical, right wing elements of the #bjp, – (You see No capitals? That is My way of insulting them) – claim that this is a ‘religious’ statement by the Muslim community.

I can’t see how that can be.

Sadhus, Sannyasis, Fakirs, (Buddhist) Bhikshus, Christian Priests and Nuns, and All Sikh (men), can be identified by their clothing. But are they making a religious statement, something like ‘I and Mine are the Best. Follow me; Do as I do?’

Does Anybody mind these clothes and dresses? Have not We Indians lived together, knowing one another’s identity, yet without difficulty?

For Years I have lived as a Sannyasi, donning clothing with colours of my own choice, ostracised by none.

Above: Satish Chandra Srivastava (available in Facebook), visited me during his trip to the South all the way from Gorakhpur, UP, to Tamil Nadu, along with his sister and niece, scant months ago (Oct. 31, 2021). Note his hand on my shoulder. He is a retired Foreman of the NER. We are of the Same batch, (1969). I left the Rlys in 1976; he continued, of course.

The percentage of Muslims c11% (13-14?), and Christians c 2.6% to c2.3% has been a Steady affair nearly since Independence. Polls put Hindus at around 80%. Is this not a Whopping Majority?

Why is the #bjp Raising Fears in the minds of the majority community; More than that, Why are my Hindu brothers and sisters giving in to the ploy of the #bjp, that too in the land of Intellectuals, India?

Loose mouths are known to say that Christians ‘convert’ forcibly or using wealth/money/property as inducement. This latter might have been true in pockets, and in ‘old’ India [ cf: Basharatpur, Gorakhpur, UP. ]. …For quite some time now Muslims have been accused of ‘enticing’ (Hindu) girls into marriage and later forcing them to convert to Islam, which got a name: ‘Love Jihad’.

By what stretch of imagination can Muslim girls, wearing Hijabs, be a part of this conversion? What else can this protest against the Hijab be? For Crying out Loud.

Each and Every Sikh wears 5, not 1, ‘signs’ of his affiliation. Below, Christian Nuns in colleges. (Can You find All the Four in the photo? :))

Sadly, catholic nuns are downright Stupid if they think wearing a sari makes them Indian, without understanding that an Indian Sannyasini would Invariably cover her head.

The Hijab is Not a sign of religious affiliation. It is Cultural, a part of their protecting the Womenfolk from Lewd eyes, irrespective of what some half baked head might say.

NO administration (gorement), NO political party and NOT even a court can say anthing against this.

Protests? The Brain-Dead majority of Indian Youth, particularly when given incentives, will gladly participate in things like this. So, protests of this sort, by this sort, have Absolutely No meaning. Below: Our Indian Youth writing ‘exams.’ #modi would like All countries to learn this.

Let us thank #modi for his loose mouth (his latest statement in Parliament itself, on the coro Exodus),

A ‘minister; writes this at time of the notorious coro exodus!

…Thanks to the #bjp, too, for bringing Cranky things like the Hijab protest. The World is Watching, and So are the Coming Generations.

PS:

MUCH had been of the #ProtestingFarmers SUPPOSEDLY having hoisted their flag at the Red Fort. But they had not taken the National Flag down; they had hoisted theirs on an alternate pole.

#SunNews, a Tamilian news channel, has published how the #saffronbrigade took down the National Flag and put up a saffron flag! #Instagram has that video.

VERY interested to see what the bjp, – teaching Us all Desh Bhakti (Patriotism), the union gorement and the #courts do about this.

#Congress, #bjp, #media, #ndtv

***

Re y’day’ s TV interview on @ndtv bet @srinivasan n @Kanhaiya.

@srinivasan criticises the #Congress, viz, #NoVision, #NoLeadership n #Fragmented.

For all his seniority, @srinvasan is like a XIIth class boy. He has missed the Forest for the Trees.

@Congress has been Bad.

Congress has also erred in Not meeting #AmrinderSingh, now ex cm of punjab.

*

@bjp IS Bad, in its very Nature.

@Congress n esplly @Rajiv have Improved; whereas in its 7 yrs, @bjp has only gone from Bad to Worse, n No Sane mind would believe @bjp would give up its #Violent, #Rowdy, #AntiDemocratic mindset.

Democratic ideals, Protests, put down with state sponsored terrorism; #bjp’s greatest negative.

Hv called @srinivasan a class XII boy bec he chooses to kneel to the #bjp, whatever the reasons. He shames the proud #South. And @ndtv has @RavishKumar, that Gem among #journalists. …Hope @ndtv improves.

As on 20th Jan, 2020

*******

I seem to be getting Famous [ thanks to the #BJP! ]. …Shameless of me to say that, of course. But here’s what’s happening. Please read on. This shows The Depravity of India’s Current political structure.

Had been getting 1 or 2 ‘Friend Requests,’ which had brought my ‘fan’s’ numbers to some 500 uptil some time ago. Yesterday, on the 19th of Jan, got nearly a 100 of them. This morning, as I start working, Facebook is showing that I have more than 200 notifications. That is becoming famous! Heehee.

And the left corner expands to:

And when I go to Facebook:

Expanded, again:

Now to a little commentary.

I seem to have hit the ‘Nerves’ of the #modi, and the #bjp (currently the ruling party in India).

We can be Sure that All political parties would have their IT cells, but here is #bjp’s own functions.

  1. A Deluge of messages.
  2. Soft porn, and then,
  3. Hard porn.

I got it all, I tell You! The word ‘dear,’ Nowhere meaning it, as can be seen in figure 4 clearly, signifying ‘the personalised porn,’ as promised by this ‘Malviya,’ who is reputed to be the head of the #bjp IT cell.

Starting from ‘dears,’ it went on to barechested men, bikini clad girls, and developed to erect male members. Yeck.

have to go through the many messages and deal with them individually; or else cannot use that section for the few that I need.

All this to show how my time is getting wasted, And to show what a Useless, Uncouth, Uncultured party We have at India’s centre today.

More later. 🙂

Islam and Christianity to be finished in India?

*******

BJP leader Rajeshwar Singh says Islam and Christianity will be finished in India by 2021.
 
This is a member of India’s ruling party openly boasting of his government’s intent to ethnically cleanse 200 million Muslims and 28 million Christians.
 
*******

Tea, Pakoras, and National Security!

*******

#modi, #sitaraman, #bjp are connecting the #pricing of the #Rafale to #NationalSecurity.
 
Next on their Agenda:
 

The #prices of #Tea and #Pakoras are connected to #NationalSecurity!

 
#modi, #sitaraman, #bjp, it is NOT the #Price, but the way you have profited your #PoliticalCrony #ambani, that we are objecting to.
 
#modi, #sitaraman, #bjp still think they are talking to uneducated Villagers.

The LATEST #bjp #congress War

*******

My point: #bjp accuses the #congress of defending a witness by sending lawyers from its party.

Aha! Just what I had been saying all along.

So Indian justice does Not care for Truth, but rather goes by what lawyers say and suggest.

And Indian judges, blasphemously called ‘justices,’ are Mere Paper Correcters. Theirs Not to Find the Truth. Rather, they Only Assess the presentations of lawyers.

As for the background, Well, these are the Only major parties of India, and war between them is not unusual. In short,

the #congress has been accused of corruption over an arms deal in the past, and now, of corruption in procuring helicopters, if I remember correctly, to ferry politicos.

You can see: https://www.hindustantimes.com/india-news/what-is-agustawestland-bribery-case-decoding-the-rs-3-6k-cr-deal/story-tAlvgyAmbECc365cvOIN9N.html

the #bjp, in my opinion, is like the #admk, involved in a Lot of corruption, but very skilful in hiding it. Right now India’s prime minister #modi is caught, with his You know what down, over the defence purchase of umpteen Rafale aircraft. The point is that there is a Vast difference in the prices at which the previous administration had been carrying on its negotiations, and #bjp’s, which boil down to nearly 10,000 million per aircraft. To top this up, #modi has unabashedly got his friend the #ambani‘s into the foray, naming this company, a civilian one, and NOT doing so well, according to reports, as a guaranteer.

On this, You may like to read: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rafale_deal_controversy

Let me end. Viva la Justice. 😦 🙂

Does India Need a ‘Surgical Strike’ day?

*******

Shame on #bjp and #modi.

What about those who lost their very Lives and Limbs in all of India’s other Military Endeavours?

#ArmyDay could and Should have been Celebrated; not in support of Wars, but as a Mark of Respect to our Heroes who give their Very Lives for Us, and to Honour Veterans.

#SurgicalStrike being used by #bjp and #modi for Political gains.

And, by the way, #bjp and #modi, What happened to the #OneRankOnePension business?

Rising Fuel Prices in India ( It is about 90 rupees a litre! )

*******

[ हिंदी में इसका सारांश लेख के अंत में. ]

The Question to the #BJP and to #GauravBhatia “Why don’t they increase the Tax on Cars and Liquor?” did not get answered to the End.

Last night (17.09.2018), an Auto driver by the name of #Khadir, an elderly man, questioned the #bjpchief in Tamil Nadu, #Tamilisai, on the rising #FuelPrices.

Upon which his hair was pulled and he was taken away by the #bjpCadre, while #Tamilisai, mistakenly thinking she was a Cinema Star, smiled and kept speaking.

https://www.ndtv.com/…/auto-driver-assaulted-for-asking-tam…

One of #MirrorNow‘s ‘debates’ on the same night was on the Rising Petrol Prices, and especially the Attack on Khadir by #BJPWorkers.

#BJP’s #GauravBhatia, defending the Rise of the prices of Fuel, said that he and his family are also affected by that.

LOL! That did make me Laugh my head off.

People of #GauravBhatia’s level, in fact all politicos, travel in air conditioned luxury cars at the expense of the Citizen; have NO idea of the Crowds and the Rush in Trains and Buses, CanNOT eat one Single, Full meal of Rice and Drumstick leaves gruel of the Poor, and shoot their mouths off.

#GauravBhatia also listed the very many so called achievements of the #BJP, including Rural Roads, Cheaper Talk Times(!), and what not.

#MirrorNow’s #Faye stated that the children are not able to Eat. It would be Better, more True, to say that Children are Not eating Proper meals because of the Rising prices, though they must be getting something into their stomachs.

#BJP and #GauravBhatia seem to be Unaware that the Nation’s Children somehow are Not able to eat all those Highly developed Rural Roads. And Nutrition Experts say that we have to eat Pulses and Vegetables along with the Staple.

The Question to the #BJP and to #GauravBhatia “Why don’t they increase the Tax on Cars and Liquor?” did not get answered to the End.

तामिल नाडू में, १७.०९.२०१८ के दिन खादिर नामक एक ऑटो चालक #बीजेपी के लोकल लीडर #तमिलिसई से इसके विषय में एक सवाल पूछ बैठा. इस पर उसके बाल खींचे गए, और मार पड़ी. …मैडम मुस्कुराते रहीं.

#मिररनाउ के ‘डिबेट’ में, जब #बीजेपी के #गौरवभाटिया से पूछा गया कि कार एवं शराब पर अधिक ‘टैक्स’ क्यों नहीं लगाए जा रहे, तो वह अंत तक इस सवाल को टालता गया.

#பிஜேபி தன் நிறத்தை காட்டிக் கொண்டிருக்கின்றது! ஓர் கோஷம் எழுப்பினால் சிறை; ஒரு கேள்வி கேட்டால் அடி உதை.

அம்மணி #தமிழிசை தான் சினிமா நடிகை என்று நினைத்துக் கொண்டார்களோ என்னவோ, புன்னகைத்துக் கொண்டே இருந்தாள்.

#MirrorNow வின் விவாதத்தில், #பிஜேபி யின் #கௌரவ்பாடியாவை, “பெட்ரோல்-டீசல்” விலை ஏற்றுவதற்கு பதிலாக, ஏன் பெரிய கார்களுக்கும் மது பானத்திர்க்கும் அதிக வரி வசூலிக்கப் படுவதில்லை? என்ற கேள்விக்கு இவனும் கடைசி வரை பதில் கொடுக்கவில்லை.
