Mind that is gentle,
free from hatred, is non-violent and under self-control:
… free from
Tranquillity of mind,
gentleness, reticence, self-control, purity of thought, these constitute
austerity of mind (Gita. XVII-16)
Worship .., clean
life, rectitude, continence and nonviolence are said to constitute
austerity of the body (Gita. XVII-14)
Evil men, evil
behaviour, anger, delusion
Men born with evil
tendency know neither what is right to do to achieve an end, not what is right
to abstain from doing to avert evil; neither purity not truth, nor even
right behaviour is found in them (Gita. XVI-7)
delusion. Delusion confuses the memory and understanding of things;
from confused understanding follows the disintegration of the power of
discrimination; with discrimination gone, the man perishes (Gita. II-63)
Whatever way of life
a high placed man adopts, other men copy; the standard he sets up is
followed by the people (Gita. III-21)
Our Home Minister’s standard is well below the lowest
standard expected of a Hindu. Bal Thackeray is
below the lowest of the lowest.
Common people copy
these evil men and kill innocents.
The path of the Muslims
is one of many
Even the devotees of
other gods who worship them full of faith, even they worship Me, though
irregularly (Gita. IX-23)
In whatsoever way men
approach Me, even so do I bless them, for the paths men take from every
side reach Me (Gita. IV-11)
All Muslims of
today are innocent of crimes done by their ancestors, but deemed guilty by
Even if a particular
Muslim has done a particular harm, that particular Muslim, AND ONLY THAT ONE,
has to be brought to book under the law of the land. None other is
responsible for any crimes done under the law.
All other Muslims are
innocent of any crime carried out by any other Muslim, as also all Hindus
not involved in any particular crime are innocent of that crime.
BJP hitting at the
roots of Ram Rajya
The BJP and its
fanatics lump the innocent and guilty together, causing significant damage
to the concept of Rama Rajya in which justice is predominant and
over-rides all other concerns.
There are rules of
war. If the Hindus and Muslims need to go battle, there must be
sufficient injustice to prompt a battle, due notice of war must be given,
and the battle must be waged by trained soldiers. Mobs who rampage and
pillage are against Hindu doctrine. Was Rama or Krishna a mobster like Adavani
and Bal Thackeray?
BJP and Shiv Sena are
in an undeclared battle against Muslims. They do not follow any civilised
rules of engagement but use mobs. They attack women and shoot children
without warning (eg. Bombay, 1992-93).
BJP and its gang of
mobsters are not simply evil, and NOT Hindus, but are shameless cowards
fighting against the weak.
