Indian constitution gives its citizens the Right to Religion. Article 25 of the constitution clearly says that Indian citizens have the right to Profess, Practice and Propagate their religion.  This constitutional guarantee cannot be misinterpreted or subverted in any manner. The recent ban on Mumbai based Islamic Research Foundation (IRF) is totally un-constitutional as this organisation has been undertaking its work within the parameters of Indian Constitution from last 26 years. Islamic Research Foundation (IRF) headed by DrZakirNaik who is an authority on Islam & comparative religion has been holding debates and discussions on Islam & other religions from last several years. He is playing a pivotal role in clearing doubts and misconceptions about Islam and this not only being appreciated by Muslims but even non Muslims are very much influenced by DrZakirNaik’s speeches. Article 25 (1) of Indian constitution gives four important rights to its citizens:

  1. To establish and maintain institutions for religious and charitable purposes
  2. To manage its own affairs in the matters of religion.
  3. To own and acquire movable and immovable property and
  4. To administer such property in accordance with law

Islamic Research Foundation (IRF) has been established as an institution which undertakes religious and charitable work. This foundation has acquired movable and immovable property and the same is being audited every year. IRF gets donations from Muslims  living across the world and the same is being monitored by various Government authorities from last almost two decades. So what prompted Modi Government to ban activities of DrZakirNaik through his organisation IRF ?

MHA’s Gazette Notification :

After the decision of Union Cabinet to ban Islamic Research Foundation (IRF) for 5 years, the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA)few days back issued a gazette notification to ban Islamic Research Foundation (IRF) under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act. The notification dated Nov 17th 2016 says that  IRF and its members, particularly its President DrZakirNaik,  has been encouraging and aiding its followers to promote or attempt to promote, on grounds of religion, disharmony or feelings of enmity, hatred or ill-will between different religious communities. The gazette notification reads as :

“The central government has received information that the statements and speeches made by Zakir Naik, the President of IRF are objectionable and subversive in nature as he has been extolling the known terrorists like Osama Bin Laden, proclaiming that every Muslim should be a terrorist and claiming that if Islam had indeed wanted, 80 per cent of Indian population would not have remained Hindus as they could have been converted “if we wanted” by sword, justifying the suicide bombings”

I have been a regular listener of Dr Zakir Naik’s speeches on Peace TV. I can say with authority that he has never encouraged disharmony , hatred or ill will with different religious groups . In-fact Non Muslims are given preference during his public lectures to ask questions and clear their doubts about Islam. IRF keeps inviting noted Hindu ,Christian, Jain and other religious scholars to its programmes. Hindu scholars like ShriShri Ravi Shankar has attended several conferences organized by IRF. It is true that Islam was not spread through sword in India. Had Muslims forcibly converted Hindus into Muslims during their rule, then population of Muslims in India should have been more than Hindus as on date because Muslims ruled India for around 500 yearsfrom 13th century onwards….

Conclusion :

I would sincerely appeal people especially my Hindu brothers and sisters to go through different speeches of Dr Zakir Naik on You-tube and compare the same with speeches of  Praveen Togadia, who is the  President of Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP). After listening both of them , kindly decide who is creating hatred and encouraging disharmony in India ? We may disagree with the views of Dr ZakirNaik , but for God’s sake don’t try to label him as a sympathizer of terrorism ? By banning IRF ,Narendra Modi has made it clear that his Government  follows the dictation of Sangh Parivar. This also authenticates the recent speech of RSS Sarsangchalak Mohan Bhagwat in Jammu wherein he reiterated Sang Parivar’s objective of converting India into a Hindu Rashtra.

  1. Let me answer the questions raised by author:
    1) Who is creating hatred and encouraging disharmony in India Zakir Naik or Praveen Togdia?
    Ans: Actually both of them are creating hatred and encouraging disharmony in India. You may ask then why there is no action against Praveen Togdia? The answer is, Praveen Togdia is not influencing hindus & due to this you won’t find any communal riots because of him. So point here is, what you said is not important but are there any communal incidences because of your statement is more important. Hence, IRC was not banned since 25 years. But now, it is known fact that terrorists are getting motivated because of Zakir’s speeches & hence it is important to take serious action against Zakir.

    2) Zakir a sympathizer of terrorism?
    Ans: First it is important to understand that why terrorism is a monopoly of muslims. The answer is the islamic scriptures. In Quran it is written that Islam is the only true religion, kafirs (non muslims) should be killed in the field of battle, if a muslim is died in the field of battle then he gets paradise, muslim should be killed if he tries to convert into another religion. Such communal statements are officially part of Islamic scriptures. Zakir is only teaching these quotes. Such statements motivate muslims to become terrorists. So problem is not Zakir, we believe anybody who is preaching Islam will become sympathizer of terrorism.

    3) Propagation of religion is a constitution right.
    Ans: It is true that the propagation of religion is a constitution right. We do not have any problem with Zakir if he is teaching Islam to muslims but his following statements hurt hindu sentiments & constitution does not give you such rights:
    A) If you are a true hindu then you should convert to Islam.
    B) Ramayan & Mahabharat is a myth.
    C) Hinduism supports meat eating.
    D) Lord Ram used to consume meat, then why hindus donot eat meat?
    E) He shows on Peace TV that hindus are converting to Islam.
    Zakir quotes given from hindu scriptures are baseless & he picks up quotes from Vedas as per his convenience. His audience is mainly muslims and hence audience becomes happy when he speaks against hindu scriptures.
    I think hindus are really tolerant people. We have allowed Zakir to speak for 25 years. Just think, can a muslim society give such freedom of expression in Islamic countries to a hindu?

    1. A) Islam is the only Religion , Propagated by Holy Prophet Adam, the first Prophet in this world.
      Islam is the only Religion acceptable to the Supreme Creator ALLAH the ALMIGHTY.
      B) Pandit Nehru replied to reporters” Ramayana a tell tale as of Arabian night. Ghandiji replied” I donot worship Ram of ramayana”
      C. All your Hindu Shastras support the meat eating. Why you lies & ignorants.
      D. Go & ask the ashes of Ram if He Ate meat.
      You liars borrowed the name of Ram from Israelies of middle East. The great great Grandson of Holy prophet David was “Ram) & there is a place in Arabia called ( RAm ALLAH )
      Go & tell them the place belonged to Hindus as Kashmir.
      E. Ignorant Man, Zakir Nayak is telling all that you are not following your own Religion .As veda said that ALMIGHTY ALLAH has no Idol. or Picture. Hinduism is not a Religion.
      Hindus are accepting Islam not by force but by their true understanding. Not only in India but all throughout the world People are accepting Islam. See How people in Japan, Malaysia & west entering Islam.
      Dr Zakir now became more adorable & famous by your
      Tuti Fruti news. Fear ALLAH SWT & become Muslim to save yourself from Hell Fire.

        1. Dumbest huh? 🙂 Well today after Maghrib we attended the Shahadah of an Australian (Gora) living in France. He had business in Egypt for quite a long time but this time he visited Saudi Arabia and lived for 6 months only and came to the Islamic center to profess his faith.
          Well some people are gaining the others are losing. Once the death takes the soul, there is no turning back, either Heaven or Hell there is no third thing.
          Decide for yourself.

    2. BUT ZAKIR NAIK AGREES FOR THIS VEDIC SCRIPTURES.
      CONCEPT OF GOD IN HINDUISM
      1. Common Concept of God in Hinduism:
      Hinduism is commonly perceived as a polytheistic religion. Indeed, most Hindus would attest to this, by professing belief in multiple Gods. While some Hindus believe in the existence of three gods, some believe in thousands of gods, and some others in thirty three crore i.e. 330 million Gods. However, learned Hindus, who are well versed in their scriptures, insist that a Hindu should believe in and worship only one God.
      The major difference between the Hindu and the Muslim perception of God is the common Hindus’ belief in the philosophy of Pantheism. Pantheism considers everything, living and non-living, to be Divine and Sacred. The common Hindu, therefore, considers everything as God. He considers the trees as God, the sun as God, the moon as God, the monkey as God, the snake as God and even human beings as manifestations of God!
      Islam, on the contrary, exhorts man to consider himself and his surroundings as examples of Divine Creation rather than as divinity itself. Muslims therefore believe that everything is God’s i.e. the word ‘God’ with an apostrophe ‘s’. In other words the Muslims believe that everything belongs to God. The trees belong to God, the sun belongs to God, the moon belongs to God, the monkey belongs to God, the snake belongs to God, the human beings belong to God and everything in this universe belongs to God.
      Thus the major difference between the Hindu and the Muslim beliefs is the difference of the apostrophe ‘s’. The Hindu says everything is God. The Muslim says everything is God’s.
      2. Concept of God according to Hindu Scriptures:
      We can gain a better understanding of the concept of God in Hinduism by analysing Hindu scriptures.
      BHAGAVAD GITA
      The most popular amongst all the Hindu scriptures is the Bhagavad Gita.
      Consider the following verse from the Gita: “Those whose intelligence has been stolen by material desires surrender unto demigods and follow the particular rules and regulations of worship according to their own natures.” [Bhagavad Gita 7:20]
      The Gita states that people who are materialistic worship demigods i.e. ‘gods’ besides the True God.
      UPANISHADS:
      The Upanishads are considered sacred scriptures by the Hindus.
      The following verses from the Upanishads refer to the Concept of God:
      “Ekam evadvitiyam”
      “He is One only without a second.”
      [Chandogya Upanishad 6:2:1]1
      “Na casya kascij janita na cadhipah.”
      “Of Him there are neither parents nor lord.”
      [Svetasvatara Upanishad 6:9]2
      “Na tasya pratima asti”
      “There is no likeness of Him.”
      [Svetasvatara Upanishad 4:19]3
      The following verses from the Upanishad allude to the inability of man to imagine God in a particular form:
      “Na samdrse tisthati rupam asya, na caksusa pasyati kas canainam.”
      “His form is not to be seen; no one sees Him with the eye.”
      [Svetasvatara Upanishad 4:20]4
      THE VEDAS
      Vedas are considered the most sacred of all the Hindu scriptures. There are four principal Vedas: Rigveda, Yajurveda, Samveda and Atharvaveda.
      Yajurveda
      The following verses from the Yajurveda echo a similar concept of God:
      “na tasya pratima asti
      “There is no image of Him.”
      [Yajurveda 32:3]5
      “shudhama poapvidham”
      “He is bodyless and pure.”
      [Yajurveda 40:8]6
      “Andhatama pravishanti ye asambhuti mupaste”
      “They enter darkness, those who worship the natural elements” (Air, Water, Fire, etc.). “They sink deeper in darkness, those who worship sambhuti.”
      [Yajurveda 40:9]7
      Sambhuti means created things, for example table, chair, idol, etc.
      The Yajurveda contains the following prayer:
      “Lead us to the good path and remove the sin that makes us stray and wander.”
      [Yajurveda 40:16]8
      Atharvaveda
      The Atharvaveda praises God in Book 20, hymn 58 and verse 3:
      “Dev maha osi”
      “God is verily great”
      [Atharvaveda 20:58:3]9
      Rigveda
      The oldest of all the vedas is Rigveda. It is also the one considered most sacred by the Hindus. The Rigveda states in Book 1, hymn 164 and verse 46:
      “Sages (learned Priests) call one God by many names.”
      [Rigveda 1:164:46]
      The Rigveda gives several different attributes to Almighty God. Many of these are mentioned in Rigveda Book 2 hymn 1.
      Among the various attributes of God, one of the beautiful attributes mentioned in the Rigveda Book II hymn 1 verse 3, is Brahma. Brahma means ‘The Creator’. Translated into Arabic it means Khaaliq. Muslims can have no objection if Almighty God is referred to as Khaaliq or ‘Creator’ or Brahma. However if it is said that Brahma is Almighty God who has four heads with each head having a crown, Muslims take strong exception to it.
      Describing Almighty God in anthropomorphic terms also goes against the following verse of Yajurveda:
      “Na tasya Pratima asti”
      “There is no image of Him.”
      [Yajurveda 32:3]
      Another beautiful attribute of God mentioned in the Rigveda Book II hymn 1 verse 3 is Vishnu. Vishnu means ‘The Sustainer’. Translated into Arabic it means Rabb. Again, Muslims can have no objection if Almighty God is referred to as Rabb or ‘Sustainer’ or Vishnu. But the popular image of
      Vishnu among Hindus, is that of a God who has four arms, with one of the right arms holding the Chakra, i.e. a discus and one of the left arms holding a ‘conch shell’, or riding a bird or reclining on a snake couch. Muslims can never accept any image of God. As mentioned earlier this also goes against Svetasvatara Upanishad Chapter 4 verse 19.
      “Na tasya pratima asti”
      “There is no likeness of Him”
      The following verse from the Rigveda Book 8, hymn 1, verse 1 refer to the Unity and Glory of the Supreme Being:
      “Ma cid anyad vi sansata sakhayo ma rishanyata”
      “O friends, do not worship anybody but Him, the Divine One. Praise Him alone.”
      [Rigveda 8:1:1]10
      “Devasya samituk parishtutih”
      “Verily, great is the glory of the Divine Creator.”
      [Rigveda 5:1:81]11
      Brahma Sutra of Hinduism:
      The Brahma Sutra of Hinduism is:
      “Ekam Brahm, dvitiya naste neh na naste kinchan”
      “There is only one God, not the second; not at all, not at all, not in the least bit.”
      Thus only a dispassionate study of the Hindu scriptures can help one understand the concept of God in Hinduism.

  2. first reply

    *you said that there have been no communal riots because of pravin togdia,okay,

    -no communal riots have taken place because of zakir naikk too

    *second reply

    -so what if it talks about battlefield ??
    will you kill your enemy in the battlefields or throw rose at him ?
    “”it is not said to kill anyone who changes his religion

    he has millions of followers and if one or two terrorist says that he is a fan of zakir naik ,it doesn’t mean that zakir is responsible for his actions
    if zakir naik really promoted terrorism and violence ,there should have been millions of his followers who r terrorist,but it is not
    most of his followers r doing dawah only

    he doesn’t pick statement from Vedas for his convenience, he tells what is written in it and
    its your problem if you don’t know your Vedas or puranas

    correction ——-most of his audience is Muslims and #hindus also ????

    and who told you that India is a Hindu country ?

    1. 1) Zakir on Vedas:
      First of all Zakir or for that matter any muslim is not eligible to read Vedas because you are meat eaters. It is a basic criteria for studying Vedas i.e. you must be vegetarian. Meat eaters can never have mind purity which is required to study Vedas. We know our scriptures very well.. however, Zakir has very limited knowledge of hindu scriptures. He has been told by many hindu scholars that he should study hindu scriptures completely. However, Zakir is only glossary reader & he does not have credibility to even comment on Vedas.
      Hindus also know several hidden truths of Islam & about your prophet. However, we never publicly speak about it because it might hurt Indian muslims sentiments. The same maturity is supposed to be shown by Zakir & other muslims.

      India a hindu country:
      India is dominated by hindus & should remain like that. We will not allow to propagate Islam in India & Zakir conversion business must be stopped. Zakir can only teach muslims about Islam & try to get them on right path. There is no need to target hindus.

      1. Lol.
        Stop dreaming that India is Hindi dominated.
        Islam is on second number in India haha

        And we also know many secrets about Hindus

        You don’t know about your religion ,about your Vedas ,you know nothing
        It is not written anywhere that you should be a vegetarian to read Vedas etc
        Stop lying, its a request

          1. SWAMI VIVEKANAND AND COW MANUSMRITI MENTIONS OF EATING BULLS.
            Why did Swami Vivekananda say this: “According to ancient Hindu rites and rituals, a man cannot be a good Hindu who does not eat beef”?

            When Buddhism broke down everything by introducing all sorts of foreign barbarians into India — their manners and customs and things — there was a reaction, and that reaction was led by a young monk [Shankara?cha?rya].

            And [instead] of preaching new doctrines and always thinking new thoughts and making sects, he brought back the Vedas to life: and modern Hinduism has thus an admixture of ancient Hinduism, over which the Vedantists predominate. But, you see, what once dies never comes back to life, and those ceremonials of [Hinduism] never came back to life. You will be astonished if I tell you that, according to the old ceremonials, he is not a good Hindu who does not eat beef. On certain occasions he must sacrifice a bull and eat it. That is disgusting now. However they may differ from each other in India, in that they are all one — they never eat beef. The ancient sacrifices and the ancient gods, they are all gone; modern India belongs to the spiritual part of the Vedas.

            — This is the context and he also says…

            The Smritis speak generally of local circumstances, of duties arising from different environments, and they change in the course of time. This you have always to remember that because a little social custom is going to be changed you are not going to lose your religion, not at all. Remember these customs have already been changed. There was a time in this very India when, without eating beef, no Brahmin could remain a Brahmin; you read in the Vedas how, when a Sannyasin, a king, or a

            great man came into a house, the best bullock was killed; how in time it was found that as we were an agricultural race, killing the best bulls meant annihilation of the race. Therefore the practice was stopped, and a voice was raised against the killing of cows. Sometimes we find existing then what we now consider the most horrible customs. In course of time other laws had to be made. These in turn will have to go, and other Smritis will come. This is one fact we have to learn that the Vedas being eternal will be one and the same throughout all ages, but the Smritis will have an end.

          2. Friend kyu
            Does this statement said proof that hindus should be meat eater
            There r many more comments about non voilence associated with animal killing
            U donot understand those as prescribed latter by hindu secular
            Does killing and eating of meat make good hindu
            God has given me mind on top dear
            Allah has given u at ankle
            Why muslims see only side of coin
            Choice worse side for them and apply on other
            Do u known there is doctrine of impermanance in indian regilions
            Every things change with time as hindu behavouir nothing is permanent
            Good hindu is one who believe in karma and dharmacic deeds and non voilence is foremost of them only
            Rituals and beliefs can be letdown if they r against ur consciousness:animal sacrifice is against against consciousness of most hindus so it is condemned by majority
            Indian religions believe enlightment
            Not in moving in sheep herd as muslims are behaving

        1. Quotes from Hindu scriptures that disapprove, even denounce, meat-eating

          “One who partakes of human flesh, the flesh of a horse or of another animal, and deprives others of milk by slaughtering cows, O King, if such a fiend does not desist by other means, then you should not hesitate to cut off his head.”
          Rig-veda (10.87.16)

          “Meat can never be obtained without injury to living creatures, and injury to sentient beings is detrimental to the attainment of heavenly bliss; let him therefore shun the use of meat. Having well considered the disgusting origin of flesh and the cruelty of fettering and slaying corporeal beings, let him entirely abstain from eating flesh.”
          (Manu-samhita 5.48-49)

          “He who permits the slaughter of an animal, he who cuts it up, he who kills it, he who buys or sells meat, he who cooks it, he who serves it up, and he who eats it, must all be considered as the slayers of the animal. There is no greater sinner than that man who though not worshiping the gods or the ancestors, seeks to increase the bulk of his own flesh by the flesh of other beings.”
          (Manu-samhita 5.51-52)

          “If he has a strong desire (for meat) he may make an animal of clarified butter or one of flour (and eat that); but let him never seek to destroy an animal without a (lawful) reason. As many hairs as the slain beast has, so often indeed will he who killed it without a (lawful) reason suffer a violent death in future births.”
          (Manu-samhita 5.37-38)

          “He who injures harmless creatures from a wish to give himself pleasure, never finds happiness in this life or the next.”
          (Manu-samhita 5.45)

          “By subsisting on pure fruits and roots, and by eating food fit for ascetics in the forest, one does not gain so great a reward as by entirely avoiding the use of flesh. Me he [mam sah] will devour in the next world, whose flesh I eat in this life; the wise declare this to be the real meaning of the word ‘flesh’ [mam sah].”
          (Manu-samhita 5.54-55)

          He who does not seek to cause the sufferings of bonds and death to living creatures, (but) desires the good of all (beings), obtains endless bliss. He who does not injure any (creature) attains without an effort what he thinks of, what he undertakes, and what he fixes his mind on.”
          (Manu-samhita 5.46-47)

          “By not killing any living being, one becomes fit for salvation.”
          (Manu-samhita 6.60)

          “He who desires to augment his own flesh by eating the flesh of other creatures, lives in misery in whatever species he may take his [next] birth.”
          (Mahabharata, Anu.115.47)

          “The purchaser of flesh performs violence by his wealth; he who eats flesh does so by enjoying its taste; the killer does violence by actually tying and killing the animal. Thus, there are three forms of killing. He who brings flesh or sends for it, he who cuts off the limbs of an animal, and he who purchases, sells, or cooks flesh and eats it–all these are to be considered meat-eaters.”
          (Mahabharata, Anu.115.40)

          “The sins generated by violence curtail the life of the perpetrator. Therefore, even those who are anxious for their own welfare should abstain from meat-eating.”
          (Mahabharata, Anu.115.33)

          Bhishma started, “Numberless discourses took place between the Rishis on this subject, O scion of Kuru’s race. Listen, O Yudhisthira, what their opinion was.
          (Mahabharata, Anu.115.7)

          “The highly wise seven celestial Rishis, the Valakshillyas, and those Rishis who drink the rays of the sun, all speak highly of abstention from meat. The self-created Manu has said that the man who does not eat meat, or who does not kill living creatures, or who does not cause them to be killed, is a friend of all creatures. Such a man is incapable of being oppressed by any creature. He enjoys the confidence of all living beings. He always enjoys the praise of the pious. The virtuous Narada has said that that man who wishes to multiply his own flesh by eating the flesh of other creatures meets with disaster.
          (Mahabharata, Anu.115.9-12)

          “That man, who having eaten meat, gives it up afterwards wins merit by such a deed that is so great that a study of all the Vedas or a performance, O Bharata, of all the sacrifices [Vedic rituals], cannot give its like.
          (Mahabharata, Anu.115.16)

          “That learned person who gives to all living creatures the gift of complete assurance is forsooth regarded as the giver of lifebreaths in this world.
          (Mahabharata, Anu.115.18)

          “Men gifted with intelligence and purified souls should always treat others as they themselves wish to be treated. It is seen that even those men who are endued with learning and who seek to acquire the greatest good in the shape of liberation, are not free of the fear of death.
          (Mahabharata, Anu.115.20)

          “What necessity be said of those innocent and healthy creatures gifted with love of life, when they are sought to be killed by sinful wretches living by slaughter? Therefore, O King, know that the discarding of meat is the highest refuge of religion, of the celestial region, and of happiness. Abstention of injury [to others] is the highest religion. It is, again, the highest penance. It is also the highest truth from which all duty emanates.
          (Mahabharata, Anu.115.21-23)

          “Flesh cannot be had from grass or wood or stone. Unless a living creature is killed it cannot be procured. Hence is the fault of eating flesh. The celestials who live upon Svaha, Svadha, and nectar, are given to truth and sincerity. Those persons, however, who are for satisfying the sensation of taste, should be known as Rakshasas [flesh-eating demons] pervaded by the quality of Darkness.
          (Mahabharata, Anu.115.24-25)

          “If there were nobody who ate flesh, then there would be nobody to slay living creatures. The man who slays living creatures kills them for the sake of the person who eats flesh. If flesh were not considered as food, there would then be no destruction of living creatures. It is for the sake of the eater that the destruction of living entities is carried on in the world. Since, O you of great splendor, the period of life is shortened by persons who kill living creatures or cause them to be killed, it is clear that the person who seeks his own good should give up meat altogether. Those dreadful persons who are engaged in the destruction of living beings never find protectors when they are in need. Such persons should always be molested and punished even as beast of prey.
          (Mahabharata, Anu.115.29-32)

          “That man who seeks to multiply his own flesh by (eating) the flesh of others has to live in this world in great anxiety, and after death has to take birth in indifferent races and families. High Rishis given to the observance of vows and self-control have said that abstention from meat is worthy of praise, productive of fame and Heaven, and a great satisfaction itself. This I heard formerly, O son of Kunti, from Markandeya when that Rishi discoursed on the sins of eating flesh.
          (Mahabharata, Anu.115.34-36)

          “He who purchases flesh, kills living creatures through his money. He who eats flesh, kills living beings through his eating. He who binds or seizes and actually kills living creatures is the slaughterer. These are the three sorts of slaughter through each of these acts. He who does not himself eat flesh but approves of an act of slaughter, becomes stained with the sin of slaughter.
          (Mahabharata, Anu.115.38-39)

          “That wretched man who kills living creatures for the sake of those who would eat them commits great sin. The eater’s sin is not as great. That wretched man who, following the path of religious rites and sacrifices as laid down in the Vedas, would kill a living creature from a desire to eats its flesh, will certainly go to hell. That man who having eaten flesh abstains from it afterwards acquires great merit on account of such abstention from sin. He who arranges for obtaining flesh, he who approves of those arrangements, he who kills, he who buys or sells, he who cooks, and he who eats it, [acquire the sin of those who] are all considered as eaters of flesh. [Therefore] that man who wishes to avoid disaster should abstain from the meat of every living creature.
          (Mahabharata, Anu.115.44-48)

          “Listen to me, O king of kings, as I tell you this, O sinless one, there is absolute happiness in abstaining from meat, O king. He who practices severe austerities for a century, and he who abstains from meat, are both equally meritorious. This is my opinion.
          (Mahabharata, Anu.115.52-53)

          “Yudhisthira said: Alas, those cruel men who, not caring for various other sorts of food, want only flesh, are really like great Rakshasas [meat-eating demons].
          (Mahabharata, Anu.116.1)

          “Bhishma said: That man who wishes to increase his own flesh by the meat of another living creature is such that there is none meaner and more cruel than he. In this world there is nothing that is dearer to a creature than his life. Hence, one should show mercy to the lives of others as he does to his own life. Forsooth, O son, flesh has its origin in the vital seed. There is great sin attached to its eating, as, indeed, there is merit in abstaining from it.
          (Mahabharata, Anu.116.11-13)

          “There is nothing, O delighter of the Kurus, that is equal in point of merit, either in this world or in the next, to the practice of mercy to all living creatures.
          (Mahabharata, Anu.116.19)

          “Hence a person of purified soul should be merciful to all living creatures. That man, O king, who abstains from every kind of meat from his birth forsooth, acquires a large space in the celestial region. They who eat the flesh of animals who are desirous of life, are themselves [later] eaten by the animals they eat. This is my opinion. Since he has eaten me, I shall eat him in return. This, O Bharata, forms the character as Mamsah [meaning flesh] of Mamsah [me he, or “me he” will eat for having eaten him]. The destroyer is always slain. After him the eater meets with the same fate.
          (Mahabharata, Anu.116.32-35)

          “He who acts with hostility towards another becomes victim of similar deeds done by that other. Whatever acts one does in whatever bodies, he has to suffer the consequences thereof in those bodies.
          (Mahabharata, Anu.116.36-37)

          “Abstention from cruelty is the highest Religion. Abstention from cruelty is the greatest self-restraint. Abstention from cruelty is the highest gift. Abstention from cruelty is the highest penance. Abstention from cruelty is the highest sacrifice. Abstention from cruelty is the highest power. Abstention from cruelty is the greatest friend. Abstention from cruelty is the greatest happiness.
          (Mahabharata, Anu.116.38-39)

          “Gifts made in all sacrifices [rituals], ablutions performed in all sacred water, and the merit which one acquires from making all kinds of gifts mentioned in the scriptures, all these do not equal in merit abstention from cruelty.”
          (Mahabharata, Anu.116.40)

          “Those who are ignorant of real dharma and, though wicked and haughty, account themselves virtuous, kill animals without any feeling of remorse or fear of punishment. Further, in their next lives, such sinful persons will be eaten by the same creatures they have killed in this world.”
          (Bhagavata Purana 11.5.14)

          1. Great work done by u

            Most biggest liars in world is zakir naik
            And his follower

  3. *Do Read……* ????????

    The great preacher Zakir Naik got into a cab in London. He curtly asked the cabbie :
    _” Brother, Please Turn Off the radio because as decreed by holy Q’uran, I must not listen to music because in the time of the prophet there was no music, especially Western Music, which is the Music Of The Infidel……”_

    The cab driver Politely Switched Off the radio, stopped the cab and opened the door.
    Zakir questioned him :
    ” Brother, What are you doing…..???? ”

    *The Cabbie Answered Politely :*
    _” In the time of the prophet there were_ :

    _No Taxis,_
    _No Bombs,_
    _No Plane Hijacks,_
    _No West Invented Loud Speakers in Mosques that woke Up newly born, Elderly And The Sick At Unearthly Hours,_
    _No Suicide Attacks,
    _No RDX,_
    _No AK 56,_
    _ONLY ” PEACE ” Everywhere…_

    *So Shut Up And Wait For A Camel…….”*

    1. And then Zakir Naik replied.

      There were no plundering of Iraq in the name of weapons of mass destructio,

      There was no Russia invading and occupying Afghanistan

      There was no Isreal in those times.

      There was no looting of oil from muslim countries

        They all deserve it

        1. Muslim are only 1400 years old while other are much older than muslims.
          What happened in two world wars .and read Christian History.
          And read ancient India history and King Ashoka was not a muslim king .King Shashank was not a muslim King and so on..

            Christian never fought on world wars on religious bases
            Ashoka denounced voilence so he is great in indian history
            There are some kings which intolerable to other in indian history like shashank
            But there are many more tolerable to others as nalanda taxila vikramshilla ghatshilla were all buddhist unversity flourised under hindu rulers
            What did muslims did to nalanda

            They killed 10000 students and burnt alive 2000 teachers to show victory of islam over land of kafir
            Who destroyed nalanda bakhtiyar khilji is sung by muslims
            Who destroyed mathura varanasi prayag ayodyha ajmer kannuj multan on name of religion
            Who looted the temples wealth throughout india
            Who were ghazni gori baber auranzeb tipu malik kafur kala pahad salar masud

            Dont forget time is changing
            Dalits hv better future than muslims
            Cruelity are only part of past as compared today

    2. All kuffar will sooner or later will shut up. Ignorants read the site of Holy Quran & cosmos to know what is Islam or will rot in hell ever.

      Read the news of truth, Elected USA president Donald Trump
      declares 9/11 was created by Bush & none else to attack Iraq.
      These supported by many Americans.
      So support the truth spoken by Dr Zakir Nayak.
      We all hear Azan in West & East for this is remembering the glorious Creator of all universe The Present & Future.

  4. The people like you invented bombs, weapon and maid the world bleeding and disharmony, If you count the killings done by so called west and others compare to Islam. Your pen ink will get over.

  5. Its very unfortunate that ATS or NIA will be challenged and will run miserably.

    They has in past has spoiled many innocent Indian citizens lives.

    This time lets have a court monitored sessions for all the hearings.

    India wants to HEAR it.

  6. Muslim have used constitution to increase their population. Constitution is not a quran which can not be changed. It just changed for GST. To make continuation a secular was the biggest mistake. Constitution should have stated Hindu India just as Muslim Pakistan. Once Pakistan was created then there was no reason for muslim to stay in India. MUSLIM FOLLOWED 2 NATION THEORY AND MUSLIM LEFT BEHIND STILL FOLLOW 2 NATION THEORY. Muslim do not like India in present political dispensation. I belive Gandhi kept Muslim in India to look like a statesman while Nehru wanted Muslim for vote bank politics. A little push in 1947 would sent all Muslim to their beloved creation Pakistan. It was a tragedy to have kept Muslims in India after 1947. I think we are back to 1947 situation as was seen 4 southern muslim districts in J&K. I see huge distance and difference between Hindus and Muslim. Muslim demands horrifying Hindus. It seems India may interrupt as it did it 1947, 1984 and 2002. MAKE INDIA A HINDU STATE WITH EQUALITY FOR ALL AND ALL RELIGIONS TO PRACTICE UNDER UNIFORM CIVIL AND CRIMINAL CODE. Othetwise, I see india muslim refugee camps in pakistan. I am no bhakti or RSS fella. I am not even a Hindu or was not born Hindu. I am writing this for discussion.

    1. Dear What has happned in the past we cannot change. Whoever did it for whaterver reason we cannot go in past and change the situation. The reason Muslims don’t like the present political dispensation is because of injustice is done on the muslims. WHO has created a distance and difference between Hindus and Muslims? You are absulately wrong when you say Muslim demands horrifying Hindus. Muslims want to live peacefully in India. It is few hate mongers who want to divide our country on communal lines. Otherwise Hindus and Muslims want to live peacefully irrespective of difference they have. ( I see india muslim refugee camps in pakistan). Why are you insigating hate. Why can’t you give solution for peace society.

      1. Hindus & Muslims can leave peacefully if muslims adopt population control i.e. ‘hum do humare do’. Are u ready for this? It is not the problem only in India.. it is a global problem.. where ever muslims go, they start increasing population like animals & become threat to local community. Same thing is happening in India. You were hardly 8% at partition time & now you are 15%. Hence hindu, muslim unity is not possible.

        1. Muslims living in urban areas have already adopted the policy and have less children. In rural areas Muslims are having more children. The reason is illiteracy. The government of the time have to take the initiative to provide education to the people living in rural areas. The increase in population is because of conversation not because of having more children.

          1. The increase in population is mainly because of conversion. People are coming towards truth. The hate mongers don’t like this that is why they are trying to create a false propaganda against Muslims, and creating a sense of fear amongst my Non-Muslims brothers and sisters. What is your problem if people are accepting the truth? If you don’t like the truth you don’t accept it no one is forcing you to accept the truth.

          2. http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2015/04/23/why-muslims-are-the-worlds-fastest-growing-religious-group/The main reasons for Islam’s growth ultimately involve simple demographics. To begin with, Muslims have more children than members of the seven other major religious groups analyzed in the study. Each Muslim woman has an average of 3.1 children, significantly above the next-highest group (Christians at 2.7) and the average of all non-Muslims (2.3). In all major regions where there is a sizable Muslim population, Muslim fertility exceeds non-Muslim fertility.
            Do u hv any facts or just speak
            Come out into real world from our islamic disney world

  7. why cant ppl live and let live … i think the biggest blunder EU did is accepting syrian refugees who r screwing their law n order

    1. Ankit Sharma for your kind information. There are 7 million non muslims living in GCC countries peacefully. Malayasia has 40% non-muslims population living peacefully in a muslim dominated country. People are tolerating each other living peacefully irrespective of the diferrence. If you cant see it. It is your problem. As far as Syrian refugees are concern they are not breaking any law in EU. If you have any concread evidence, please share with us. Even we want to know how they are screwing the law and order of EU.

      1. Who u hv any information secular muslim rufugees were involved in paris attacks
        Recently they burned downed community hall in germany worth 45 crore
        They r not mingling with local people causing headache to local population throughout europe ;these are small ghettos or mohallas
        http://www.express.co.uk/news/world/644827/refugees-committed-crimes-Germany-migrant-crisis-last-year
        They r showing their bright colour their regilious teaching in european countries

        1. The nature of the offences appears to be mostly minor: 28,712 cases of riding on public transport without paying the fare, 52,167 incidents of forging paperwork in a bid to get money, 85,035 cases of theft, mosty shoplifting – nearly double those of 2014. This is what your article says where it is mentioned about Paris attack? where is mentioned of burning of community hall? Even if they have really done it also why are you linking it to religious teachings. No religion teaches you do wrong things. If some people are doing wrong things blame them not the religion.

          1. http://mobile.wnd.com/2016/11/muslim-migrants-burn-down-center-over-lack-of-chocolate/
            They are more instances of burning down
            Just search
            http://www.cnn.com/2015/11/15/europe/paris-attacks-passports/index.html
            This is form of islamic terrorism that world is facing
            Why world facing problem with muslim only
            Muslims have problem with
            Jews in isarel
            Hindus in india pakistan bangladesh
            Buddhist in southern thailand
            Yezedis in iraq
            Christian in iraq syria eygpt
            Christian Filipinos
            This is affect of ur teaching of ur regilion
            Why india divide can u answer
            Bcz of some regilion ideology

    2. This is your evil mentality @ankit ,
      You r not human if you don’t care about other homeless people
      Hindus r also in. Arab countries tries they should be kicked out from there ha ?
      Die in your rage idiot

      1. Hindu never created headache to local population
        Hindus are always credit with hard labour and high learning in foreign land
        Not credited as terrosist as muslims are credit terrosist
        And nusanice to educated society
        U never said what u muslims did to yezedis christian after islamic uprising in muslim country
        Can u imagine arab world working without indians arabs dont hv mind to do all these work
        Muslims r talking about humanity
        Is there can of concept of humanity in ur religion
        U never hv pain yezedis eyptian christians kashmiri pandits
        But question of humanity arises when questions on muslims rufugees comes
        What a double moral guys

        1. Mr sanjay ,the truth may hurt you badly

          — truth– Islam is the only true religion
          Jews(Zionists) hates Islam and they want to destroy Islam,because it is the only true religion with pure monotheism

          Zionist planned and orchestrated 9/11 to wage war on Muslim lands and when those Muslim fought back ,evil people like you started calling them terrorist

          And the attack which Isis is carrying out is not a plan of Muslims, its been plotted by Israeli mossad
          They don’t want Muslim to have a unity and they want to continue their war on Islam

          Muslims r defending themselves ,they r not terrorist

          Media is the biggest liar and you r fools to believe in whatever media tells you

          They r earning money by spreading lies and you r their supporters.

          1. We both hindu and jews hv relation of pain and persecution of 1000 yrs by hands of muslims
            Just see history muslims coverted famous temples into mosque in india eg ram janmabhoomi krishna janmabhoomi
            Kashi vishwanath
            In israel muslim converted solomomn temple into aska mosque
            India hv second largest population of muslims in world even after that not a single islamic country in world supported us on kashmir; they all are backing pakistan
            Israel can help us in various field defense
            Agriculture and other fields
            And helping out
            Isreal thanks india for giving refugee to them when were persecuted in israel
            They r one of best friend
            They r helping us abroad in counteracting saudi pak lobby
            Foremost they are helping indians
            What they do in middleeast is there policy

        2. Read history of Dalits in India.and other lower caste people and history of Hindus.
          Hindus dont cause problem to others but create problem to their own people.
          Majority of muslims dont know who ISIS are.

          It is Christian and Jewish Media who portray Islam n worst form ,they fear of Islam as there are majority of educated well to do Christinas are converting…

          Allah has his own system of woking..
          As far as history of India.Arab and Christian west goes.
          india was ancient land with knowledge ,it was then Arabs who travelled far and wide to learn in India and China and same knowledge was tarnferred along with their own to Europe.
          And imagine ,there are millions of Indians are enjoying luxuries of lifein Gulf .Had Arab have been working all these Indians have been struggling in India…
          Now all Arab Countries are gradullay throwing all your educated Indian out,and Indians in Gulf are crying ..

          READ A REPORT FROM WESTERN WRITER

          Chilcot’s Anatomy of a War
          admin | August 15, 2016 | 0 Comments
          Western democracies pining for new Wars to sustain their industry nullifies the very essence of their being.
          Peace has become a threat for Western democracies. At least this is broadly evident from the Chilcot Report which presented its findings leading to involvement of Britain in the Iraq War launched in league with big brother the United States on March 20, 2003. The War caused 1.3 million deaths and completely devastated Iraq, pushing it to the verge of balkanization and unleashing the satanic ISIS upon the region.
          The 2.6 million-word report stops just short of branding the then British Prime Minister Tony Blair ‘a liar’. It makes no bones about Blair government’s complete absence of judgment in rushing to war without exhausting peaceful alternative options. The British Government depended upon flawed intelligence report, mainly from the CIA, which were neither challenged nor tested for sound legal justification. Attorney General Lord Goldsmith’s advice was not adequately scrutinized.
          The Report points out that the justification for war was built upon fabricated evidence of Saddam Hussein’s Government manufacturing Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) and Saddam being a threat to peace and security to the region (read oil supplies to the Western Industrial powers). There was no need to rush into the war as UN Inspectors were engaged in inspection of stockpile of Iraqi arms. The British Government could not fulfill the objectives it had fixed prior to the war. It mourns the loss of 200 Britons in the War and death of nearly 150,000 Iraqis till July 2009.
          The committee was appointed by former British Prime Minister Mr. Gordon Brown in July 2009 and was assigned a year for the submission of the Report. But the Committee took nearly seven years to probe the circumstances that led to the War and Britain’s involvement.
          The Report is mysteriously silent on the role of the media whose hysterical campaign had considerably influenced the public opinion, but not to the extent desired by the then dispensation. Home Secretary Jack Straw is on record to have stressed the need for aggressive campaign to rope in the media and ease the task of building the case for the British Government.
          What is fairly evident now is that the Western democracies—in this case one being the oldest and the other being the strongest—could employ lies, half truths, untruths and outright falsehoods to mislead the public opinion with the so-called free press just being another cog in the wheel of the propaganda machine.
          If indeed these democracies feel threatened with the continued reign of peace and absence of war and opportunities for new contracts for their MNCs, why blame dictators and despots for violation of human rights, bloodletting, suppression of civil liberties and mayhem. It is now clear that capitalism-linked democracies are new threats to peace. Their high consumption societies, the energy-guzzling industries and transport, their huge standing armies, the weapon manufacturers, and finally their lobbies build constant pressure to promote war and more wars. The peace-loving nations can ignore these factors only at their own peril. If indeed the Western democracies have come to depend on wars to satiate the bellicosity of their manufacturers, why flaunt the fig leaf of peace, prosperity and progress. It is time the world realized the dangerous trajectory the West has come to pursue and see through their designs that come wrapped up in elegant slogans.
          AND READ ABOUT MEDIA
          “”Beware of Media
          THE Alexander Solzhenitsyn SAYS.
          THEY HATED RUSSIANS.THEY HATED CHRISTIANS.DRIVEN BY ETHNIC HATRED,THEY TORTURED AND SLAUGHTERED MILLIONS OF RUSSIANS WITHOUT A SHRED OF HUMAN REMORSE
          IT CAN NOT BE OVER STATED.BOLSHEVISM COMMITTED THE GREATEST HUMAN SLAUGHTER OF ALL TIMES .
          THE FACT THAT MOST OF THE WORLD IS IGNORANT AND UNCARING ABOUT THIS ENORMOUS CRIMES IS PROOF THAT GLOBAL MEDIA IS IN THE HANDS OF PERPETRATORS ”
          Read Your Holy Books and Woeship One God mentioned in Vedas…
          Common Concept of God in Hinduism:
          Hinduism is commonly perceived as a polytheistic religion. Indeed, most Hindus would attest to this, by professing belief in multiple Gods. While some Hindus believe in the existence of three gods, some believe in thousands of gods, and some others in thirty three crore i.e. 330 million Gods. However, learned Hindus, who are well versed in their scriptures, insist that a Hindu should believe in and worship only one God.
          The major difference between the Hindu and the Muslim perception of God is the common Hindus’ belief in the philosophy of Pantheism. Pantheism considers everything, living and non-living, to be Divine and Sacred. The common Hindu, therefore, considers everything as God. He considers the trees as God, the sun as God, the moon as God, the monkey as God, the snake as God and even human beings as manifestations of God!
          Islam, on the contrary, exhorts man to consider himself and his surroundings as examples of Divine Creation rather than as divinity itself. Muslims therefore believe that everything is God’s i.e. the word ‘God’ with an apostrophe ‘s’. In other words the Muslims believe that everything belongs to God. The trees belong to God, the sun belongs to God, the moon belongs to God, the monkey belongs to God, the snake belongs to God, the human beings belong to God and everything in this universe belongs to God.
          Thus the major difference between the Hindu and the Muslim beliefs is the difference of the apostrophe ‘s’. The Hindu says everything is God. The Muslim says everything is God’s.
          2. Concept of God according to Hindu Scriptures:
          We can gain a better understanding of the concept of God in Hinduism by analysing Hindu scriptures.
          BHAGAVAD GITA
          The most popular amongst all the Hindu scriptures is the Bhagavad Gita.
          Consider the following verse from the Gita: “Those whose intelligence has been stolen by material desires surrender unto demigods and follow the particular rules and regulations of worship according to their own natures.” [Bhagavad Gita 7:20]
          The Gita states that people who are materialistic worship demigods i.e. ‘gods’ besides the True God.
          UPANISHADS:
          The Upanishads are considered sacred scriptures by the Hindus.
          The following verses from the Upanishads refer to the Concept of God:
          “Ekam evadvitiyam”
          “He is One only without a second.”
          [Chandogya Upanishad 6:2:1]1
          “Na casya kascij janita na cadhipah.”
          “Of Him there are neither parents nor lord.”
          [Svetasvatara Upanishad 6:9]2
          “Na tasya pratima asti”
          “There is no likeness of Him.”
          [Svetasvatara Upanishad 4:19]3
          The following verses from the Upanishad allude to the inability of man to imagine God in a particular form:
          “Na samdrse tisthati rupam asya, na caksusa pasyati kas canainam.”
          “His form is not to be seen; no one sees Him with the eye.”
          [Svetasvatara Upanishad 4:20]4
          THE VEDAS
          Vedas are considered the most sacred of all the Hindu scriptures. There are four principal Vedas: Rigveda, Yajurveda, Samveda and Atharvaveda.
          Yajurveda
          The following verses from the Yajurveda echo a similar concept of God:
          “na tasya pratima asti
          “There is no image of Him.”
          [Yajurveda 32:3]5
          “shudhama poapvidham”
          “He is bodyless and pure.”
          [Yajurveda 40:8]6
          “Andhatama pravishanti ye asambhuti mupaste”
          “They enter darkness, those who worship the natural elements” (Air, Water, Fire, etc.). “They sink deeper in darkness, those who worship sambhuti.”
          [Yajurveda 40:9]7
          Sambhuti means created things, for example table, chair, idol, etc.
          The Yajurveda contains the following prayer:
          “Lead us to the good path and remove the sin that makes us stray and wander.”
          [Yajurveda 40:16]8
          Atharvaveda
          The Atharvaveda praises God in Book 20, hymn 58 and verse 3:
          “Dev maha osi”
          “God is verily great”
          [Atharvaveda 20:58:3]9
          Rigveda
          The oldest of all the vedas is Rigveda. It is also the one considered most sacred by the Hindus. The Rigveda states in Book 1, hymn 164 and verse 46:
          “Sages (learned Priests) call one God by many names.”
          [Rigveda 1:164:46]
          The Rigveda gives several different attributes to Almighty God. Many of these are mentioned in Rigveda Book 2 hymn 1.
          Among the various attributes of God, one of the beautiful attributes mentioned in the Rigveda Book II hymn 1 verse 3, is Brahma. Brahma means ‘The Creator’. Translated into Arabic it means Khaaliq. Muslims can have no objection if Almighty God is referred to as Khaaliq or ‘Creator’ or Brahma. However if it is said that Brahma is Almighty God who has four heads with each head having a crown, Muslims take strong exception to it.
          Describing Almighty God in anthropomorphic terms also goes against the following verse of Yajurveda:
          “Na tasya Pratima asti”
          “There is no image of Him.”
          [Yajurveda 32:3]
          Another beautiful attribute of God mentioned in the Rigveda Book II hymn 1 verse 3 is Vishnu. Vishnu means ‘The Sustainer’. Translated into Arabic it means Rabb. Again, Muslims can have no objection if Almighty God is referred to as Rabb or ‘Sustainer’ or Vishnu. But the popular image of
          Vishnu among Hindus, is that of a God who has four arms, with one of the right arms holding the Chakra, i.e. a discus and one of the left arms holding a ‘conch shell’, or riding a bird or reclining on a snake couch. Muslims can never accept any image of God. As mentioned earlier this also goes against Svetasvatara Upanishad Chapter 4 verse 19.
          “Na tasya pratima asti”
          “There is no likeness of Him”
          The following verse from the Rigveda Book 8, hymn 1, verse 1 refer to the Unity and Glory of the Supreme Being:
          “Ma cid anyad vi sansata sakhayo ma rishanyata”
          “O friends, do not worship anybody but Him, the Divine One. Praise Him alone.”
          [Rigveda 8:1:1]10
          “Devasya samituk parishtutih”
          “Verily, great is the glory of the Divine Creator.”
          [Rigveda 5:1:81]11
          Brahma Sutra of Hinduism:
          The Brahma Sutra of Hinduism is:
          “Ekam Brahm, dvitiya naste neh na naste kinchan”
          “There is only one God, not the second; not at all, not at all, not in the least bit.”
          Thus only a dispassionate study of the Hindu scriptures can help one understand the concept of God in Hinduism.

  8. It is very unfortunate to see such grown up people, fighting like 5-year-olds over religion, and who’s god is greatest.

    God is one/100/infinite. God isn’t a being. A being has life.
    God is everything. God IS life.

    We have made the division amongst ourselves on earth about different versions of God.
    Humans have created religion.
    IF everyone lived like brothers and sisters, free to pray to whomever they want, the world would be a much better place.

    You don’t have to prove to others your god is the best.
    Be an example so that others can look at you and what you do and say – God really does Exist.

    Peace to you all brothers and sisters.
