From killing Kar Sevaks to thrashing Sabarimala devotees, Indian secularism means hostility towards Hindus

Under Mulayam Singh Yadav's order, Kar Sevaks were shot dead and they were buried instead of cremation, while media kept silent

In an earlier article, we had reported that the Mulayam Singh government in Uttar Pradesh had opened fire upon Karsevaks in 1990 and then conspired to hide the actual death toll by having them buried instead of cremating them according to Hindu rites, as reported by Republic TV in their expose.

The incident was one of the darkest moments of Independent India when the secular state slaughtered innumerable Hindu devotees and the people involved have gotten away without any repercussions. Not only have they gotten away, but also the people who allegedly committed the heinous abuse of human rights went on to have great political careers and held democratically elected offices.

The so-called ‘independent’ media conspired to cover up the entire matter and it has taken nearly three decades for the truth to emerge. It is an indictment of the Indian media, which never wastes a moment in portraying itself as the moral guardian of society, that it purposely shied away from performing its duty.

It is also an indictment of the Hindu society that Mulayam Singh Yadav, on whose orders the shots were allegedly fired, never had to face the consequences of his actions. Despite the slaughter of Karsevaks, Mulayam has remained a powerful player in Indian politics and even went on to become the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh later on. Normally, one would expect the political career of someone in that position to be ruined after such atrocious allegations. However, when one has the propaganda machine on one’s side, they can get away with it.

Worse, Mulayam hasn’t yet issued an apology over the whole incident. He did say he regretted issuing the orders but never quite apologised for it. In fact, he said it was necessary to protect Muslim sentiments. He had said in 2016, “I regret giving orders to shoot kar sevaks at Ayodhya. My decision to order firing at kar sevaks was to save Muslim minorities. This decision was needed to keep the faith of Muslims in this country intact.”

The entire series of events only reveals the anti-Hindu nature of the secular state and the establishment. The life of a Hindu is worth so little in secular India that politicians can order fire upon them without suffering any consequences for their actions.

If that weren’t enough, as per Republic TV’s latest expose, the authorities then denied the murdered devotees their fundamental right to funeral rites according to the customs of their own religion. Not even terrorists are denied proper funeral rites and here we have people, whose only crime was that they were devotees of Shri Rama, who were buried instead of being cremated so that the political establishment did not have to report the accurate numbers of the deceased.

Mulayam Singh’s statement was particularly revealing. In secular India, Hindus have to be slaughtered if necessary in order to protect Muslim sentiments, if we are to take his words for it. And the mainstream media, who pretend day in and day out that they are morally superior to the rest of us mortals, conspired to silence the entire matter.

Nearly three decades have passed since the ghastly events at Ayodhya. And yet, nothing much has changed. Then, it was Mulayam Singh. Today, it is the Chief Minister of Kerala, Pinarayi Vijayan, who is hell-bent on destroying the traditions of the Sacred Abode of Bhagwan Ayyappa, the Sabarimala Temple. And he is doing so with the full sanction of the secular state.

Hindus have been brutally thrashed in Kerala, some have committed suicide witnessing the brutal assault on their sacred beliefs. And yet, will anyone be held accountable at all for the misery that Hindus have been forced through? Extremely unlikely.

To top it off, our Judiciary has time for every matter under one Sun but not enough to resolve the Ram Janambhoomi dispute. Years and years have passed and yet, we are no closer to receiving a judgment on the matter than we were 8 years ago.

All of it does not bode well for the secular fabric of the country. Continuous institutionalised discrimination against one single community is bound to attract severe retaliation. And that retaliation will be conveyed through the one power that is guaranteed to every single citizen of the country: The Ballot.

With every passing election cycle, we will witness people voting for candidates who promise to rectify the wrongs that have been done to them, candidates who promise retribution for the misery they were made to suffer, for the sentiments which were violated. Unless the entire political spectrum comes together to address the injustice that has been done to Hindus, people will avenge the injustice that has been done to them through the power of the Ballot that has been granted to them by the Indian Constitution.

And that is how a Democracy slowly paves the way for tyranny, when the interests of people have been ignored for so long, when they have suffered the brunt of institutionalised discrimination for long enough, they do not vote for progress and prosperity. They vote for vengeance.
