 News Right Now: Blatant Discrimination

Welcome to News Right Now - Blatant Discrimination

As if banning the sale of beef, handing over the Babri Masjid to Hindus, and allowing raging mobs to kill Muslims, isn’t bad enough, India, the world’s quote-unquote largest democracy is spiraling into an apartheid state, now floating legislation called the Citizenship Amendment Bill or CAB. The Bill is purportedly designed to give a fast track to citizenship to persecuted Sikh, Hindu, Jain, Christian, and Buddhist immigrants from Afghanistan, Pakistan, and other surrounding countries. Notably absent from the list, are Muslims - and that is not a coincidence.

That’s because the CAB is closely linked to another bill called the National Register of Citizens designed by the government to weed out illegal immigrants, mostly Muslims from the Indian state of Assam. The NRC targets 2 million people, mostly Muslims, some of whom had lived in Assam for decades - requiring them to prove citizenship or face detention and deportation.

Muslims comprise approximately 14 percent of the national population. and more than twice that in Assam state. In the 2019 Indian election, one of Modi’s central campaign promises was that he’d get the NRC in shape and deal with the Muslim migrants in Assam once and for all. The Indian government’s hostile and aggressive stance toward Muslims, including the blatant discrimination and prejudice that Muslims are subjected to demonstrates India’s transformation to a devolved Hindu nationalist state.

This should come as no surprise as Allah says:

( لَـتَجِدَنَّ اَشَدَّ النَّاسِ عَدَاوَةً لِّـلَّذِيۡنَ اٰمَنُوا الۡيَهُوۡدَ وَالَّذِيۡنَ اَشۡرَكُوۡا​ ۚ وَلَـتَجِدَنَّ اَ قۡرَبَهُمۡ مَّوَدَّةً لِّـلَّذِيۡنَ اٰمَنُوا الَّذِيۡنَ قَالُوۡۤا اِنَّا نَصٰرٰى​ ؕ ذٰ لِكَ بِاَنَّ مِنۡهُمۡ قِسِّيۡسِيۡنَ وَرُهۡبَانًا وَّاَنَّهُمۡ لَا يَسۡتَكۡبِرُوۡنَ)

You will surely find the most intense of the people in animosity toward the believers [to be] the Jews and those who associate others with Allah {5-82}

On top of that, the Hindu religion with its oppressive, hierarchical caste system has a built-in set of beliefs that makes it impossible for Hindu nationalism to ever provide justice all members of society, let alone Muslims. Rather than rushing to the aid of Muslims, the rulers and governments of neighboring Muslim countries continue to only pay lip service to the oppression of Muslims in India, Kashmir, Myanmar, and East Turkestan.

The tragic reality is that our Ummah will continue to remain a target of the kuffar until we have a state that protects us. This State will not only protect Muslims, but it will secure justice to non-Muslims and won’t discriminate based on race, ethnicity, or religion.

Jazāk Allāhu Khayran for joining us!
