Hate among us Indians and SRK

This note is not about SRK; it is about the hate expressed towards fellow Indians in two of the notes below.  

Briefly, Sharukh Khan, as he is called SRK and the King of Bollywood, is an Indian Actor who was detained in the New York Immigration for 90 Minutes, because of his Muslim name and it was the 2nd time it has happened.

He was here to address the students at Yale University. Googling his name will produce thousands of entries on this event. However, he had a great attitude, he said, whenever my ego gets bloated, I go to America, they bring me down. I am glad the Foreign Minister of India and the Embassy of India have taken this up with the State Department.

As Americans, we should not allow any bigotry in our land, he should be treated with respect, as he represents Billions of Indians. He can gather a Million Indians in a hurry than any other Indian.  This incident has made a "few" among the right-wing Indians happy and the notes below are indicative of it.

SRK is more Indian than Narain, me or anyone else, and he lives, serves and entertains Indians.  Narain is denigrating a fellow Indian, and being disrespectful towards millions if not billions of Indians who adore him.

I ask him, “Have you ever considered your statements to be hateful? Wouldn't it be dead wrong to say that Hinduism teaches one to be hateful?  Show your note to any average moderate Indian or American; they see the venom in it.  This is not the Hindu thing, or Indian thing, this is you the individual.”

“You don’t need to be seething, just think about what you are doing. Is this the right thing to do?”

I am sure that the 120 subscribers on this e-list are not extremists, a handful may be, but the majority is not, they are good people who mind their own business.  No one should judge a group by individuals, that amounts to stereotyping and that is most dangerous thing one can do to a nation or a people. 

We have to build a cohesive India, where we defend the rights of every Indian.  Mr. Narain Kataria, I hope you start seeing an Indian as an Indian, the bias stems from your mind, it is not a part of the majority of Indians.

The average Indian living in India would be appalled to read your statements.

Mr. Kataria,  you are propagating hate against fellow Indians....and probably increase their blood pressure and make them sick of your rhetoric. Is this the right thing to do?

Until the myths or facts (to the other) are cleared up, where both sides agree to the "agreed facts" ill-will continues. I don’t know if you have a gain in this, leadership or financial, that is your business. 

You and I have an opportunity to serve as guidance to create a balance in a society based on agreed facts by all sides. No nation or individual will live in comfort, when falsities circulate.

You had held a conference, about Islam and you did not invite Muslims to the event. Was that to mis-educate the Hindus?  A true conference will have all points of view. Isn't this American way?

Make a list of all the things you believe, and let's hold a conference to put all the fabrications aside and honor India and the Indians for being truthful. Truth is the only thing that triumphs; it will restore the trust in the society. Let's learn to live our religions, whatever they might be. 

We need to work to mitigate the ill will, would you join me in doing so?

Thank you Narain

Shah Rukh Khan (SRK) is a very cunning and crafty actor. He has a very soft corner for Jihadists.

Even though more than 95% terrorist acts were conducted by radical Islamists all over the world, this fellow came out with a grossly misleading nonsensical twaddle that “terrorism has no religion”! Readers also should note that SRK and his ilk have never condemned Islamic terrorists who murdered 3000 on 9/11 in New York, 200 in Mumbai, 200 in Madrid, 200 in Bali, Indonesia; and 350 in Beslan in Russia.

Instead of finding fault with Islamic terrorists, SRK came out with a movie “My Name is Khan” and gave a good conduct certificate to Jihadists who have been extolling the virtue of violence and hatred against humanity and mercilessly murdering innocent men, women and children.

Unlike naïve and spineless Indian Government, American government is determined to crush terrorism in this country with an iron hand. They are aware that their responsibility is to protect Amercian citizens from terrorists.

It is very easy to hoodwink Hindus. But it seems that American government knows it very well this guy is playing Al Taqiyya with them. (Al Taqiyya is a part of Islamic doctrine of deception which enjoins on all the Muslims to blatantly lie and cheat non-Muslims in furtherance of Islam.).

A man is known by the company he keeps. Hence I would warn Nita Ambani and other Hindus to think twice before choosing their friends. Otherwise, one day they will have to pay a very heavy price for their ignorance/stupidity.

Responsee No. 2

I do not understand as to why some Indian government agencies are making a lot of noise whenever some Indian Muslim is detained at any air port in America – in this case Shah Rukh Khan – SRK.

It is a well known fact that most of the terror acts are conducted all over the world by radical Islamists. Muslims have already killed more than 3000 Americans in New York. Muslims are shooting American soldiers in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Hence it is the responsibility of American intelligence agencies to safeguard the security of their citizens because they do not know the difference between a Muslim terrorist and an ordinary Muslim.

So whenever American notice some Muslim entering America, they become extra careful and ensure that safety of their citizens is not jeopardized.

SRK may be a big name in India, but here nobody knows him! Moreover, India government should give up the habit of Muslim appeasement in foreign countries also. From their past experience, in America, every Muslim in this country is considered suspicious until proven otherwise by the law enforcement agencies. Hence, India government should not be guided by the pressure tactics of Muslim groups in India and let American agencies do their national duty.

India government has to learn a lot of things from American system if they sincerely wish to protect their citizens from terrorist attacks.
