Hindu-Muslim composite culture on display in Pakistan

Hindus in Pakistan continue to be given lessons in Hindu-Muslim composite culture, secular syncretism and South Asian “brown” identity:

They came after dusk and chanted into the night sky “Kill the Hindus, kill the children of the Hindus,” as they smashed religious icons, ripped golden bangles off women’s arms and flashed pistols. It wasn’t the first time that the Hindu temple on the outskirts of Pakistan’s largest city was attacked, and residents here fear it will not be the last.

A Hindu girl goes missing and then resurfaces days or weeks later married to a Muslim boy. During court hearings to determine whether the conversion was voluntary, students from nearby Islamic schools called madrassas often flood the room, trying to intimidate the judges by chanting demands that the conversion be confirmed.

Maharaj says he’s tried to intervene in roughly 100 cases of forced conversions but has only succeeded in returning a girl safely back to her family once. If a girl decides to renounce Islam and return to Hinduism, she could be signing a death warrant for herself and her family…

Now why would anyone even complain about this? Why should Hindus feel bad that their deities are smashed, the women in their families are molested, kidnapped, raped and forcibly converted? After all, these fortunate women are being liberated from their oppressive patriarchal traditions and given a fulfilling role as mediums for cultivating more secular South Asians. Without a doubt, only the crass communal and fascist will find any reason to complain. They need to be taught that this is all about secular syncretism and composite culture. This about secularism in South Asia.” Or so, the professional secularists would have us believe. Make no mistake, given current demographic and political trends this is waiting to happen in our own backyard in India.

  1. When this happens in India, blame should be on the ‘economic right’ Hindus who refuse to see the reality, who adovcate for Hindus’ self destruction by way of ‘women empowerment’ and who say separating RoP & RoL population from Hindusthan is not desirable.

    • I would like to clarify that while I broadly agree with your observation on the naivete of the undoubtedly anglophile “economic right”, I disagree with your allusion to “women empowerment” as “self-destructive” which in itself you have left very open-ended. Women have a most crucial role to play in the survival and revival of Hindu society. I will only point you to the very critical role played by the Maratha queen Tarabai who led the Hindu forces against the jihadi horde of Aurangzeb. I do disagree with the blind emulation of Western mores that sundry foreign funded NGOs are pushing as “women empowerment”, in reality only empowering divisive centrifugal forces in India. Hindu society has its own framework for moving with the times and empowering all sections, men and women, within and without. As regards the RoP and RoL populations, they are no doubt nations within a nation. In this, Ambedkar was spot-on. A failure to exchange religious populations during partition, as Ambedkar had wanted, was a monumental blunder. The out-of-control political ambitions of the dharmavirodhin anglophile Nehru, and the delusional tomfoolery of Gandhi with regards to Muslims, will come back to wound this already wounded civilization.
