HENB | New Delhi | Sept 15, 2015:: In a critique of Vice President Hamid Ansari’s recent speech on the need for “affirmative action” for Muslim empowerment, an article in RSS mouthpiece ‘Panchjanya’ has accused him of speaking like a “communal Muslim leader”.
It said instead of projecting Muslims as victims of discrimination, Ansari should “tell them the truth about how Muslim radicalism is preventing them from integrating with the society”.
Quotes from the article ‘पिछड़ने’ की वजह और बेमौसमी राग (The reasons of backwardness and the untimely notes) reveals the truths as: “हमारे उपराष्ट्रपति काफी पढ़े-लिखे और विद्वान व्यक्ति हैं। इसलिए हाल ही में जब मजलिसे मुशावरत के जलसे में दिया गया उनका बहुचर्चित भाषण पढ़ा तो बहुत निराशा हुई, क्योंकि तमाम बुद्धिजीविता के लब्बोलुआब के बावजूद वह एक सांप्रदायिक मुस्लिम नेता का भाषण लगता है।….
लेकिन हामिद अंसारी भूल जाते हैं कि मुस्लिम विभाजन के शिकार नहीं उसकी वजह हैं। उनके इस कृत्य के नतीजे सारे गैर मुस्लिम झेल रहे हैं।…..
इस तरह इस्लाम और आधुनिकता दो ध्रुव हैं जो आपस में मिल नहीं सकते। लेकिन अंसारी जैसे नेता उनको यह बात कभी समझाते नहीं।”
(Our Vice President is a well educated erudite person. When I read his well dicussed speech delivered in a programme of All-India Muslim Majlis-e-Mushawarat, I got very much disappointed. Despite his well known intellectual fame, his speech sounded like a communal Muslim leader…… Ansari usually forgets that Muslims are not the victim of partition, but the reason of it. The Muslims are just facing their deeds….. Islam and modernity are like two poles that can never meet but leaders like Ansari will never tell Muslims this.)
The article attacks Vice President’s take that Muslims in India face the challenges of identity, security, education and empowerment.
“There was much dejection in the much-talked speech by Hamid Ansari at All-India Muslim Majlis-e-Mushawarat, as it comes across as one made by a communal Muslim leader. The Vice President is expected not to talk preferentially of one community but to speak of benefits for all. But these elements are missing from his speech,” the article says.
The piece goes on to cite radical Muslim outfits like ISIS, Taliban and Boko Haram to say Islam and modernity are “poles apart”.
“Islam and modernity are like two poles that can never meet but leaders like Ansari will never tell Muslims that,” it says.
It says that the VP’s speech “doesn’t reflect any sense of self introspection” and added only he can explain “how a religion keen on implementing 1400 year old rules can be described as modern”.
On the issue if identity, it said,”Secular India has paid a heavy price to maintain Muslim religious identity… Uniform Civil Code was not implemented… Muslim Personal Law has distorted India’s secular character but no Muslim leader speaks of these facilities which they treat as a right.”
It also says the Constitution doesn’t provide for religion based quotas.It also sited the constitutional right for minorities to set up and manage their educational institutions and questioned the continuing Haj subsidy.
