Pakistan condemns anti-Azaan measures in Indian state of Karnataka

Pakistan on Tuesday strongly condemned the "highly deplorable incidents involving the playing of Hanuman Chalisa and other Hindu devotional songs" on loudspeakers as a counter to the Muslims’ call to prayer (Azaan) at various mosques in the Indian state of Karnataka.

"The disturbing incidents occurred only a day after Sri Ram Sena Chief made the despicable call for 'drowning' the Azaan through the provocative playing of Hanuman Chalisa and other Hindu religious hymns. It is condemnable that a reprehensible so-called 'Azan se Azaadi’ campaign has been launched by Hindu fanatic groups in Karnataka which lays bare the new level of religious radicalism in the BJP-ruled India," the Foreign Office (FO) said in a statement.

It further noted that loudspeakers were being removed from mosques across various states in India under the pretext of ensuring communal harmony.

"The ‘othering’ of Muslims in India and exclusionary policies aimed at denying their fundamental right to profess and practice their religion, only expose the deep-seated anti-Muslim prejudices in the Indian state and society," it added.

"Pakistan calls upon the Indian government to transparently investigate the incidents of widespread violence against minorities, particularly Muslims, and their places of worship and take measures to stop such incidents from recurring in the future. The Government of India must ensure the safety, security and well-being of minorities."

The FO said that Pakistan also calls on the international community to take note of the "aggravating situation of Islamophobia in India," and play its due role in ensuring the religious freedom and safety of the beleaguered Muslim community residing in India.

Muslims in India ? The deep reservoir of Hindoo shame,has been converted into Muslim hate,by the Politicians – as that is the core of the Hindoo DNA.If there were no Muslims – the Hindoos would target the Dalits.It is the evolution of shame and humiliation,into HATE and VITRIOL – which is a tried and tested formula,in several nations. The media acts as a tool,for the “accentuation and catalysis” of the anti-muslim agenda,by distorting and hyping incidents, WHICH ARE CREATED AND NURTURED BY THE IB,NIA AND THE POLITICIANS (as a part of a conscious strategy of asymetric war,on the Indian Muslims and a perpetuation of, a monotony of propaganda) The formula of the politician,is simple – to create an issue each week of the year, in order to bring diffident and marginal hindoos,into the right wing hindoo cult – and let the opposition splinter the Muslim vote,into different parties The Indian Media live off the Goebbelsian Propoganda of Modi and his band of crazed loons ! dindooohindoo
