The Muslim Maryada in Ayodhya: GOD is WITH the OPPRESSED

Mujeeb Jaihoon’s unapologetic piece on the spiritual salvation of Indian Muslims in the post-Babri national timeline.

DARKER BLACK DAYS

Yet another Black day for the Indian Muslims in their identity struggle. Aug 05 2019 and 2020 will go down in history, like Dec 06 1992, as an unfortunate day when the Founding Fathers of this nation will be turning in their graves. Indian Muslims are an unfortunate lot who voluntarily chose to stay back in this country, even as a large portion of their faith fraternity migrated to the newly founded ‘Holy State’. They took this stand with calculated risks, knowing well they would forever remain an endangered minority in every sense of the word- political, religious and cultural.

As law-abiding citizens of the much celebrated largest democracy in the world, Indian Muslims have time and again bore the brunt of majoritarian politics. The Secular and Left Wing spectrum have repeatedly taken them for rides, well aware of the Community’s fear of the Right Wing. Loyalty of Muslims have been rewarded with institutional insult and indifference at best, and betrayal at worst.

DESPITE UPON DESPITE VERDICT

The Nov 09 2019 verdict of the honorable Supreme Court regarding the disputed land – claimed by Hindus as the birthplace of Lord Ram and by Muslims as site of Babri masjid built in Mughal times – was a complete shock to many level-headed minds. Despite acknowledging that there is no evidence a temple pre-existed the mosque and therefore no temple was destroyed for the mosque construction, despite admitting that demolition of the Babri masjid was a criminal act, despite accepting that act of placing an idol in the Babri Masjid in 1949 as an ‘act of desecration’ – the verdict was pronounced in favor of the Other to pacify majoritarian aspirations. That’s like declaring the runner-up as the champion, not the actual winner, to respect the sentiment of the spectators.

There is little historical or legal proof that any temple was actually demolished to construct a mosque. That remains a controversy. But it is modern history that the mosque was razed in broad daylight- under the nose of the police and army, in the watchful eyes of the media and under the inaction of the administration.

EVICT US. INSULT US. BUT CAN’T ERASE US

True, every Indian Muslim is hurt and wounded by the chest-thumbing rumble of the supremacist Sangh brigade. Their patriotism has received yet another blow from this hitherto tolerant and inclusive nation. But this is not the end of the Indian Muslim project.

Every Muslim problem is ultimately their spiritual problem. A Muslim can be Muslim, only if he or she firmly believes that the God they worship aligns with the weak and oppressed, not the egoistic elite nor the repressive regime. No doubt, Muslims have been unjustly wronged, like in the past, on this black day as the leader of the country inaugurated this ‘funeral’ of Indian Secularism. The patience and restraint of Indian Muslims are well documented. Muslims have lived and prospered in India long before 1528, when the Babri Masjid was built. Their timeline continued unaffected even after Dec 06 1992 when the structure was demolished by the karsevak mob with the blessing of the Establishment. And now with the Bhumipujan ceremony, they may be hurt, insulted and wounded, but not non-existent. Day in and day out, many have been killed in mob lynching and communal riots. The majoritarian regime may be racing to evict and erase the Muslim identity from history and national identity. But the Muslim will remain an integral part of India’s legacy- past, present and future.

The modernist Ataturk Inc. converted many mosques to bars and museums, banned beards, caps and hijabs; jailed the Ulama and shut down madrassas. But tables turned within a few decades. Modern Turkey is the perfect example of the anti-climax for Islamophobic ambitions. The Hindutva-dominated Indian regime hasn’t even come close as Ataturk did.

MUSLIM MARYADA IN GANDHI’S RAMARAJYA

There is no nothing shameful or embarrassing to Muslims for the construction of a temple in honor of the Ram, an important legend in the Indian traditions, symbolic of justice, forgiveness and dignity- values which are central to a Muslim’s spiritual salvation.

In the words of GANDHI, the father of Nation murdered by a Hindu fanatic: By Ramarajya I do not mean Hindu Raj. I mean by Ramarajya Divine Raj, the Kingdom of God… I acknowledge no other God but the one God of truth and righteousness. Whether Rama of my imagination ever lived or not on this earth, the ancient ideal of Ramarajya is undoubtedly one of true democracy in which the meanest citizen could be sure of swift justice without an elaborate and costly procedure. Even the dog is described by the poet to have received justice under Ramarajya.’

As a practicing Muslim, I unapologetically believe that Ramarajya, as envisioned by Gandhiji, will only entitle my Muslim countrymen to greater peace, equality and freedom. Nevertheless, Patience will be indispensable, like those of Turkish men and women during Ataturk times, in this mission to overcome the momentary existentialist challenges. God-willing.

  1. you guys could have left after 1947- ample opporunities- even now

    stop blameing hindus. hindus left pak,afghanistan

    your staying in india is no favour.

    shameless people.

    muslims have settled across the world, despite being disliked. keep blameing others.

    muslims should live in own states. times have changed.

    hindus want a hindu india. no mullahs, masjids, kabirstans.

    with time more masjids will be attacked and destroyed.

    1. I think – India is a secular country. It belongs to every indian -Hindu, Muslim, Christian and so on. I am a Hindu and love my Muslim, Christian brethren. The Indian tradition and culture just teaches us so. Every indian (Hindu,Muslim, Sikh, Christian, Jew etc) are and will remain an integral part of India’s rich legacy- past, present and future. No person is criminal by virtue of his/her religion. We must understand this. The idiot is one who considers India as a Hindu Raj or Muslim Raj and by doing so, s/he violates the constitution of india. We should not let fanatics to devide our nation. Live and let live. Spread love and harmony- that is the only way for a prosperous future for all Indians and world at large.

    2. Y a Rama Temple ?

      As per the Valmiki Ramayana – Rama was an impotent gay pansy,a coward, a man who pimped his wife, an impotentica, a murderer and a man who was born out of bestaility ! dindooohindoo

      “What my father, the king of Mithila belonging to the country of Videha, think of himself having got as so-in-law you, a woman having the form of a man?”

      अनृतम् बल लोको अयम् अज्ञानात् यद्द् हि वक्ष्यति | तेजो न अस्ति परम् रामे तपति इव दिवा करे || २-३०-४

      Case 2 – Rama told Sita to whore herself- this is in the Valmiki Ramayana

      Chapter [Sarga] 115

      तद्गच्छ त्वानुजानेऽद्य यथेष्टं जनकात्मजे |
      एता दश दिशो भद्रे कार्यमस्ति न मे त्वया || ६-११५-१८

      “O Seetha! That is why, I am permitting you now. Go wherever you like. All these ten directions are open to you, my dear lady! There is no work to be done to me, by you.”

      तदद्य व्याहृतं भद्रे मयैतत् कृतबुद्धिना |
      लक्ष्मणे वाथ भरते कुरु बुद्धिं यथासुखम् || ६-११५-२२

      “O gracious lady! Therefore, this has been spoken by me today, with a resolved mind. Set you mind on Lakshmana or Bharata, as per your ease.”

      įatrughne vätha sugréve räkņase vä vibhéņaëe |
      niveįaya manaų séte yathä vä sukhamätmanaų || 6-115-23

      “O Seetha! Otherwise, set your mind either on Shatrughna or on Sugreeva or on Vibhishana the demon; or according to your own comfort.”

      Case 3 – Rama killed a Sudra to save the son of a Brahmin ! Also because the Sudra was studying the Vedas

      Book 7, the ‘Uttarakanda’ [Final Chapter], sargas 73-76, in the Adhyatma Ramayana version of Ramayana.

      When Rama is reigning as a virtuous king, a humble aged Brahmin comes to him, weeping, with his dead son in his arms. He says that Rama must have committed some sin, or else his son would not have died.

      (74) The sage Narada explains to Rama that a Shudra is practicing penances, and this is the cause of the child’s death.

      (75) Rama goes on a tour of inspection in his flying chariot, and finds an ascetic doing austerities, and asks who he is. ”

      (76) Hearing the [inquiring] words of Rama of imperishable exploits, that ascetic, his head still hanging downwards [as part of his austerities] answered:— ‘O Rama, I was born of a Shudra
      alliance and I am performing this rigorous penance in order to Conquer the heavens with this body. Lord Rama killed him due to his bad intentions and there by giving Shambuka his Moksha.

      Case 4- Rama;s mother had sex with a Horse !

      Book I : Bala Kanda – The Youthful Majesties

      Chapter [Sarga] 14
      Queen Kausalya desiring the results of ritual disconcertedly resided one night with that horse that flew away like a bird. [1-14-34]

      Case 5 – Was Rama a Gay Monkey ?

      Book VI : Yuddha Kanda – Book Of War

      Chapter [Sarga] 128

      आजानुलम्बिबाहुश्च महास्कन्धः प्रतापवान् |
      लक्ष्मणानुचरो रामः पृथिवीमन्वपालयत् || ६-१२८-९७

      That Rama, having his long arms reaching down his knees, having a broad chest and glorious, ruled this earth with Lakshmana as his companion.

      No humans has arms reaching to the knees ! Is Rama an Ape ?

      Rama ruled for 10000 years with Lakshmana – as HIS COMPANION ? What about Seeta Maiya ? What do have here ? A Gay Monkey !
      Rama spent 12 years with Lakshmana and Apes, with no sex with a woman – so he became Gay –so what – it is all evolution !
      As per Ramayana – Rama ruled happily ever after for 1000 years, with Lakshmana by his side (not Seeta) – it is all the Gay Thing (although Uttarakandam says that Rama and Seeta made merry for 10000 years – as miya bibi – but that was to neuter the Gay Theory of the Valmiki Ramayana)
      Also, the Ramayana says that Rama had hands till his knees, and that explains his love and fondness for all apes and monkeys
      Rama the Limpdick spent 12 years with Lakshmana, in a jungle, with no sex – and was sexually frustrated , and then Vali was banging his brother’s wife – and so, Rama the Limpdick killed Vali –
      it is all OK La !

      Case 6 – And the proof is the limpdick of Rama !

      This is Hanooman describing the UNDERSIZED LIMPDICK VIRILE MEMBRANE OF RAMA ! (Don’t ask how did Hanooman know)

      18.
      “He has three folds in the skin of his neck and belly. He is depressed at three places (viz. the middle of his soles, the lines on his soles and the nipples).

      He is undersized at four places (viz. the neck, membran virile, the back and the shanks). He is endowed with three spirals in the hair of his head.
