Anti-Muslim prejudice, UN Human Rights and elections in India
Not only well, but very, very well, the UN Human Rights chief while urging India on Monday to counter suspicion against its Muslim minority following the Mumbai attacks warned that the country's strict anti-terror measures threatened Hyman Rights but why she did not mentioned that no outsider can enter into any country and foil an attack without the ground and internal support.
If she think that Muslims were made to suffer in-wake of Mumbai attacks for investigations why she forget to mention that why only few hundred Muslims were detained for questioning and after wards released after getting satisfactory answers and relies from them? Where in Mumbai only few hundred Muslims?
Rights are rights, If these Human Rights activists are shouting Human Rights, are not those human beings who were killed in the attack. Are not soldiers, Hindus who sre killed in Muslim majority places, human beings? Why Human Right activists do not raise up to such occasions?
The statement of the UN Human Rights chief Navanethem Pillay seems to have some hidden agenda. If I am not wrong, this statement can fuel to the anti-BJP sentiments and benefit Congress party in the Lok Sabha elections scheduled to start from April 16.
At some pints she is right, when says that secular India has a long history of tensions between its majority Hindus and minority Muslims that have exploded in deadly violence killing more than 2,000 people, mainly Muslims, in communal riots in Gujarat state in 2002. But that time, when the statement and Human Rights protests were needed. Where was UN Human Rights and why now when the country is to go for polls?
