Muslim Appeasement

Among the hundreds of lies of Hindutavavaadis, this is among their favourite and oft repeated lies. The implication of this is to tell Hindutavavaadi’s Hindu Audience that they are somehow inferior citizens in eyes of Indian Government thus fueling hatred against Muslims and dissatisfaction against whoever is the ruling party in Delhi, calling them Anti-Hindu. But as most of the things RSSwalas say, this too is also a lie.

Institutions of Indian State are Institutionally Anti-Muslim and these institutions work very hard to keep Muslims marginalised and at bay of education, power or wealth. Trying to prove this here is going to make a blog into book, so book lovers should read Aakar Patel’s Our Hindu Rashtra: What it is. How We Got Here, the book proves it without doubt that India is Anti Muslim, including its judiciary which is biased and bigoted like the rest of Institutions. There is no appeasement happening, Indian Institutions work very hard to push and keep Muslims in illiteracy and poverty.

Anyone who cares to love India, must love its citizens as well, and Muslims are Indian citizens. If India needs to be become wealthy and influential it can not be done with Muslims left behind. And lies like Muslim Appeasement is detrimental to aims of making India wealthy and influential. All figures here are from Sachar Committee Report.

Urban Poverty
Muslims are among most poor socio-economic group. Urban Muslims are even behind Scheduled Castes, after thousands of years of oppression of SCs they have still done better than Muslims. Following are the percentages of people living below poverty line
Hindus General Category: 8.3%
Hindus SC-ST: 36.4%
Hindus OBC: 25.1%
Total Hindus (Below Poverty Line): 20.4%
Minorities Except Muslims: 12.2%
Muslims: 38.4%
If Muslims are being appeased and they are still the poorest socio-economic group than Muslims do not want any such appeasement.

Rural Poverty
Again Muslims are among the poorest Indians
Hindu General – 9%
SC/ST – 34.8%
Hindu OBCs – 19.5%
Total Hindus (Below Poverty Line): 22.6%
Other Minorities: 14.3%
Muslims: 26.9%
If Muslims are being appeased and they are still the poorest socio economic group than Muslims do not want any such appeasement.

This is main reason most people will site for Muslim backwardness, saying that Muslims go for traditional education in Madarssas where teaching is sub par. But that is not the truth in quality or Quantity. Quantitywise, only 3% of the Muslim children go to Madarssas. And they go to Madarssas because they come from abject poverty. They get three meals a day in Madarssas. Those who go to Madarssas are poor kids, their fate is sealed even before they step in Madarssas, and after Madarssa they do not have enough resources for higher education. Those who belong to the cream of Muslim societies, when they go to Madarssas they become something coming out of it. My family comes from the cream of Muslim society but in two generations of my family only one uncle and two cousins went to Madarssa, my uncle became an MRCP Doctor and is so qualified that when he went to settle in Australia, Australians exempted him from giving the bridging exams that all Doctors from India have to give to practice medicine in Australia. One of the cousin who went to Madarssa is now an Director of Banks in Dubai while the other is an Islamic scholar whose videos keep going viral.

Next the common problem is accessibility of education, only half of the Muslim dominated villages in India have a school in the village, the average in country is eighty percent. Is this what you call appeasement? Rest of the stats of Muslims in education are just as poor. Keep in mind when reading the table below that Muslims made 13.7% of population when Justice Sachhar was doing his research

Literacy63.5%57.2%67.5% (Sikhs)
Graduates6.0%2.8%6.4% (Sikhs)
Studying Bachelors Degree in IIT1.7%
Studying Medicine4.0%
In IIM1.4%
In Premiere Art Colleges4%
In Premiere Commerce Colleges4%
In Premiere Science Colleges3%

This is where we will pick up institutional discrimination against Muslims in India. Number of Muslims who sit for Civil Services (IFS/IAS/IPS) is 5%, i.e. of everyone who sits in the exam 5% are Muslims, and when the system is automated Muslim representation does not fall below 5%, hence at the last stage of recruitment i.e. interview, all those who go for interview 5% are Muslims. But when the list for successful applicants issued, Muslims make only 2.5% of the people. How come when the system is automatic Muslims keep to their percentages and when they are interviewed their success rate falls by 50%. If this fall is appeasement, please stop appeasing Muslims.

Muslim Population when these figures were taken 13.7%Muslim Representation
Sessions Judge And Above3%
Public Sector Banks2%
Public Sector Undertakings2%
Civil Services in States (with avg. 16% Muslim Pop.)3%

Most Muslims are not in jobs but self employment, manufacturing or trade is because often they have no option. Most jobs are controlled by people who hate Muslims so I do not understand why these people will ever do anything for Muslims. There is no appeasement happening here, if there was appeasement Muslims would be at least similar to their population.

How Reservations is Used to Marginalise Muslims further
Although I am the biggest supporter of reservation for persecuted groups. But in India this system is being abused as a tool to suppress Muslims representation in Parliament and Legislative Assemblies, for example  in West Bengal assembly Nabagram and Khargram are Muslims majority Assembly Constituencies they have half the number of SC/ST than Muslims (ie. Muslims are over 50% and SC ST are around 25%), but these seats are reserved for SC/ ST, while Kashipur and Alipurduar are General Category constituencies while SC/ST population in these is well over 50% and Muslim population is around 5%…. How is that appeasement? Karimganj in Assam is another Lok Sabha constituency which has Muslim majority but is reserved for SC/ST.

How Justice system persecutes Muslims
Justice system in India is the worst. Everyone praises Jai Bhim, and it is indeed very good film and highlights the discrimination against SC/ST. But let us look at Prison statistics as well, the 2015 prison statistics report that in West Bengali 85% of all detenues are Muslims (Muslims are only 27% in WB) which means they have not being booked or charged with anything and are being held up on spurious charges or no reason at all. Typical Jai Bhim happening with Muslims to an extent that 85% detenues are Muslims. Please supporters of Appeasement argument explain me how are so many Muslims kept as detenues.

Who is really being Appeased?
Hindus and everyone else except Muslims. This table tells how many followers of each religion are in what category of Reservation class, for example, only 26% of Hindus are in General Category, 22% of Hindus are in SC Category, 9% of Hindus are in ST Category while 43% of Hindus are in OBC Category.


It is Hindus and everyone else who is being appeased, everyone except Muslims. Only 25% of Hindus fall in General Category, 36% of Sikhs are in General Category, 34% Christians are in General Category and only 3% Buddhists are in General Category…. on the other hand 60% Muslims are in General Category. Muslims, the most socially, educationally and financially poor section of the society have the least reservation, and people are saying that Muslims are being appeased. Appeased with what?

Sachar Committee Conclusion
Exact words of Sachar Committee in conclusion, “In almost all aspects of community development, Muslims lag behind and show lack of progress. The condition of Muslims is marginally better than SC / STs. But Muslims lag behind Hindu OBCs, Other Minorities and Hindu Generals (mostly upper caste) in almost every measured signal. The committee suggested that the condition of Muslims is so bad that all Muslims should be put in OBCs. The situation is grim in states with large Muslim populations, especially in the states of West Bengal, Bihar, Uttar Pradesh and Assam.”

There is hardly a single privilege or facility that Muslims exclusively enjoy in India. Indeed Indian Institutions from Parliament to Supreme Court, all of them work towards marginalising Muslims and making sure that they stay poor and uneducated. Muslim Appeasement is a complete and utter lie.

How Feminists are deceiving the world

The biggest lie that Feminists tell is that they are fighting for equality between Men and Women. Complete and utter lie, they do not want equality, they want identicality.

I once asked a question to a lawyer friend of mine. I asked him, if Titanic was to sink today, and two brothers were on board, and the crew of Titanic decided what they decided back in 1912, i.e. Women and Children first. Both brothers were denied to board life saving rescue boats as preference was given to women over men, one of the brothers survived while the one other one froze to death. Now the brother who survived sues the Titanic company for discrimination and the judges now have to decided whether it was correct to disallow men ‘Right to Life’ (the most fundamental of human rights) because they are men. How would they decide? Would judges decide, that grieving brother is correct and say Titanic management was wrong? This would open floodgates to more discrimination where all discrimination would be justified in terms of identicality, an example would be Indra Sawhney decision of Supreme Court of India, where court decided that ‘equality is among equals’, those in position of strength are not equal to those who are weak. Or, would the judges decide that crew of Titanic was correct and men and women are not identical, and women needed to be given a priority given men had a better chance of survival in those conditions than females. My friend’s answer was that it is a very difficult case and decision, and joked that he is happy not to be judge in this case.

The problem with the word equal is that most people who want equal rights for men and women do not understand what equality means or worse, they know what it means and are intentionally deceiving others because others are naive in understanding what equality means. What feminists are really asking for is identicality of rights, not equality of rights. Hence they never want to argue why women should compete with men in sports, because they know that men and women are not identical, the 10th fastest man in the world is faster than the fastest woman in the world. Men and women are not identical hence their rights should not be identical as well, because identical rights are assigned to those with identical resources. Resources that men have are different from women, not just physiological differences, nature (or character) of men and women are different. Men have more physical strength than women. Women on the other hand are more emotional and benevolent than men. Asking for identical rights for unidentical groups is simply and plainly wrong, and hence no one is able to find a single feminist who advocates that men and women should compete against each other in sport, because even the most ardent feminist knows that it is unfair for men and women to compete together in sports because they are not identical.

Islam recognises these differences and thus does not give men and women identical rights, in Islam men and women are equal an overall level, but not identical. There are places where women have an advantage, while there are other place men have an advantage. The problem with this situation of where should women have advantage and where should men have advantage, it is something that you can’t let men or women decide. If men were to decide, they would want to trample over what rights women must have, and if women were given the power they would want to trample over rights that men must have. Only God Almighty can justly decide who gets what, as He has created both of them and is unimaginably just., hence God Almighty is The Only One who can decide on this matter fairly. Obviously those who do not believe in God Almighty will find this problematic and that is ‘the problem’ with many societies. Most societies want to be their own masters, create their own rules which are convenient for them and ignore what was commanded by God Almighty, which also muddles the debate around equality of men and women, and their rights.

One of the favourites arguments of feminists against Islam is the share of inheritance between brother and sister, and I have written a whole blog about it. I have described in detail why a brother should and must be given a larger share because the responsibilities brothers have are far greater than responsibilities sisters have. Another claim of feminists is position of wife vis a vis her husband, but they a mother is three times more deserving of love and companionship than the father, so if women are in a distinct disadvantage in one place, men are in distinct disadvantage in another. In Islam there are lots of places where women have advantage over men. For example, after divorce mother’s have the right of custody of children under seven years of age, while their father will pay all expenses. Divorced mothers also have a right not to care for any of the children if they don’t want to, children are ultimately father’s responsibility. Another distinct advantage comes in case of mother’s death, the first right to raise the baby is not with the father but maternal aunt, preference of female over males. Similarly, in case of man slaughter, the right to forgive the accused rests with the mother of the victim not the father (if both are alive). One hadith says that heaven is under the feet of mothers, while another says that the one who raises daughters with love they will be his shield from hell fire, the same is not true for fathers or sons. The list of such examples is too extensive to discuss here.

As Muslim I have never bothered to ask why is heaven not under father’s feet or why wouldn’t sons be shield against hell fire? The reason is that I understand that men and women are equal, but not identical, which also means that I recognise that rights of men and women should be equal but not identical. There would be places where men have an advantage, and there would be places where women have advantage.

One last point is that many societies today are on a complete different footing than Islam, because they are individualistic societies, an individual is the most basic structure of these societies. Hence they believe that rights of individuals should be identical irrespective of the gender and the role a person plays in the society. In Islam and some other societies, not an individual but family is the basic unit. Although during the Day of Recompense individual is the most basic unit even in Islam, but here on Earth the basic unit of society is family. Hence everything in Islam, rights of children, parents, sisters, brothers, husbands, wives and everyone else is based on the family structure. And the family structure itself is based on 3 ‘R’s; Resources, Roles and Responsibilities, meaning whoever has whatever resources or abilities will get roles and responsibilities according to them. But there is an interdependency in three ‘R’s. One’s resources decides their roles and responsibilities in the family; or one’s role in the family decides what their resources and responsibilities they need to be provided and back to where we started whoever has whatever resources or abilities will get roles and responsibilities according to them.
