Ban Road Namaz

Sir Humphrey: If you want to be really sure that the Minister doesn't accept it, you must say the decision is "courageous".
Bernard: And that's worse than "controversial"?
Sir Humphrey: Oh, yes! "Controversial" only means "this will lose you votes". "Courageous" means "this will lose you the election"!

The political wisdom of Sir Humphrey Appleby from “Yes, Minister” seems profoundly eternal. That’s the way Babus make decisions for ministers. Recently, the GOI decided to recruit some non-IAS professionals directly as Joint Secretaries. The IAS officers revolted and so did some in the Opposition and media. The govt must have asked the Chief Secy what to do and he would have advised: “Look, this decision may get you some applause but not any votes. But you may lose some 100000 votes of IAS officers for this controversial decision”. WITHDRAWN! Ditto the decision on ceasefire in Kashmir during Ramzan. The Home Secy would have told the GOI “It will be a controversial decision but you will not lose any votes. However, you will get applause from all your enemies and the media”. DONE! Ceasefire announced.

So, as you can see, most govt decisions are not based on conviction or what is right but on whether it will impact votes or popularity. One such decision that is now appalling is the “official approval” of Namaz on the streets when it clearly violates written laws in this country. Recently on Eid in Mumbai, the govt not only allowed Eid on the roads but even bragged about being a great unifier. This “Road Namaz” didn’t exist earlier but started sometime in the early 1990s as Muslims started asserting their religion with various symbols – Mouche-less beard, long kurtas and baggy pyjamas, skull caps and Namaz on the streets. The Namaz on streets has progressively gotten worse and has now become a “Right” for the community. Roads apart, even railway tracks are now owned by them:
In some cities, this road-Namaz is not merely an Eid feature, this is now a regular Friday feature that creates nuisance for commuters and halts traffic, especially in narrow streets. Sometimes, this Friday feature also leads to clashes and violence. In the first week of May 2018, some vigilantes stopped Namaz in some public place in Gurugram and the govt also stated that they should do prayers in the mosque or in private places. Naturally, the Sickulars were quickly up in arms. Saba Naqvi grandly screamed the right to pray was being snatched and Shekhar Gupta parroted groups that demand space for Namaz:
Does it occur to the moron Naqvi that praying on the streets meant for vehicles is not a “Right”? How does a govt stopping occupation of streets for prayers amount to snatching the “Right to pray”? This is nothing but Jihadi logic that seeks to assert and impose Islam on everyone. The other Dalal-street champion, Shekhar Gupta, parrots some groups demanding govt should provide space. Why? Is the govt some Mullah charity organisation that should provide space? The Muslim Wakf board is one of the biggest land occupiers in India. They don’t want to provide space but want govt to dole them space. Appeasement leads to “begging” becoming a natural “Right” and “Entitlement”. And there is CB Naidu of Andhra, in his fancy dress with a goatee, who grandly announces that his govt has built thousands of mosques. This is the same NCBN who wants special status and more money for AP. For what? To build mosques?

There is another thing that is bothersome. I have often wondered why everyone wishes “Peaceful Eid” in all their messages on Eid. We are used to “Happy Diwali” or “Happy Christmas” or “Merry Christmas”. Why the “peaceful” in Eid messages? Are they always expecting some incident that should be avoided? In fact, it does seem that every Eid there are violent clashes at some places just like violence erupts in some places after Friday Namaz. These reports from the recent Eid celebrations don’t even shock people anymore:
On the left, there were Muslims celebrating Eid with Jihadi songs and abuse of India and shouting pro-Pakistan slogans. On the right is a report on Dalit-Muslim clashes in UP on Eid day. Elsewhere in Karnataka, a Mullah called Tanvir Hashmi in his speech claimed the “Muslim community” is above all in this country, including the PM and President. Just what exactly are these people trying to assert? That no law is applicable to them and they will do exactly as they please because govts are cowards that refuse to act against them? The BJP even goes to that Imam Bukhari of Delhi for “Sampark” nonsense when that man has multiple warrants on his head. Once this Bukhari’s lawyer grandly told the Delhi HC that there will be riots if he is arrested, along with his other arrogant, nonchalant threats to the State.

The ModiSarkar was elected to put an end to lawlessness in any form. If PM Modi grandly slams Cow vigilantes, he also owes it to the nation to stop the road Namaz and also arrest those Mullahs who covertly wage war against India through their speeches. “Sabka saath, Sabka vikas” certainly doesn’t mean a license to lawlessness for one community or the other. ModiSarkar was also elected to bring India back to her original cultural values and road Namaz and threatening speeches aren’t some of those. Former President Pranab Mukherjee clearly said Mughals are invaders at his RSS speech and the current Islamic community is “invading” streets with Namaz in the same assertion of those Mughals.

Everyone has a right to pray, nobody has a right to pray on the streets or roads. Muslim women do Namaz at home, if their men don’t have space in mosques they can do so at home. There is no rule in Islam that Muslims have to take to the streets for mass prayers. This is not even allowed in Islamic countries. And stupidos who defend this nonsense, like Saba or some Rehman, claim this is only for a few minutes:
This is an absolute LIE that these people peddle. In 5-7 minutes, the Namazis don’t even settle down to pray. The whole exercise takes nothing less than 45 minutes to an hour and on Eid it might take longer. These people compare wedding processions or Kawariyas to the road Namaz. This is bogus equation. Wedding processions keep moving as do Kawariyas and Ganesh processions. They don’t squat and occupy the street for long periods. Of course, the other nuisance of loudspeakers is not even being touched upon despite so many complaints. And because BJP govts are afraid to deal with this and are unwilling to enforce the law, they grandly allow the practice and claim it as a great virtue of society:
This is outright nonsense when the govt itself becomes an accomplice in violating laws and obstructing the movement of citizens and then mocking the citizens by bragging about it as a great act of integrity. Shame on such govts. Yesterday, June 21, Yoga Day was celebrated in many parts of the world. Yoga takes much longer than Namaz for one celebratory session. But nowhere in the world was Yoga conducted on the streets. All over, Yoga was celebrated in private grounds, lawns, public squares meant for assembly or open spaces where traffic is not affected. Even near the Eiffel tower, no traffic was obstructed nor at the United Nations:
Therefore, even the mass Namaz on Eid can be done at municipal grounds, stadiums and other institutions with prior permission. If some places cost a bit of rent, I am sure they would give discounts or even waive that for a special occasion. But that is not what these Muslims want. It is not that they cannot get spaces to pray. It is not that their mass crowd for Namaz cannot be accommodated in ground or stadium. It definitely can. What they want is obstruction of roads to assert their authority, assert their religion over others and assert that they will not be subject to ordinary law like others. I am sure, ModiSarkar does not have the guts to stop this nonsense in its current avatar. I can only hope PM Modi finds the courage to ban this road-Namaz business once and for all in a second term.

Yesterday (June 21), a woman at a passport office in Lucknow threw a massive fit over some documents required over her married name or the name being different in her application. Being Muslim, she instantly played victim, the media bigots lapped it up. Then Sushma Swaraj intervened immediately because of media reports, passport done over an hour and the RPO transferred. Over and over again, ModiSarkar is proving to be scared and afraid of following the law and procedures when it comes to Muslims. If the Congress was brazenly Chrislamist and anti-Hindu, the BJP is proportionately cowardly in its Dhimmitude.

Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas DOES NOT mean one community can be allowed to be lawless all the time, while others are punished for flimsy reason. Sabka Saath also means the law should be uniform for all and occupying roads for Namaz is not equality. Even open defecation on rail tracks on the edge of roads or railway tracks does not stop traffic. If that is offensive, then occupying roads in mass numbers and obstructing traffic is a worse crime that needs to be ended.

  1. Assertion and arrogance is to bully over Hindus and that is the problem. Its an announcement that today is our day and on this road traffic is halted. Then slowly such streets close down, ghettos build up. Then filth start gathering. Lo and behold you have created a fit place to usurp with shops and houses going for cheap.

    Political spine is lost. I'm happy that many Social Media warriors have recognised theirs to write on tweets without fear. This is real fear which they throat down and claim they are getting victimised. God himself seem to come down to India to cleanse these practices.

  2. Temporary mosques/Prayer hall are Built on streets, Roads, Railway Platform and Courts premises now which shows their hegemony compulsiveness against HINDU.Now Muslims are mere 15% of total population but with increasing Population and a Solid Vote Bank to change the Political system in India they get away with their demands.We have hoped that the same man who said that he will not work for appeasement of any one will succumbs to the pressures of appeasement of the same gang group clan who has deep hatred for him,party,Hindu, Nation and country.

  3. The Hindus gave this Modi fellow fulsome support but these guys a la Vajpayee start doing Gandhigiri and huglomacy. They threw the Hindus in J&K to the hyenas and made a total mess. That Ram Madhav is an embarrassment with his blubbering and blabbering. We elect these hopeless nincumpoops who turn into Prithviraj Chauhans and Gandhi chelas.

  4. Spot on as usual. Still the bureaucrats rule in certain areas

  5. While Road Namaz is not their RIGHT and they may be doing this to create trouble intentionally, it is also too much to blame the Government for allowing this. Muslims need not be appeased, but they also cannot be alieniated. Remember it is only if the BJP comes to power another term we can expect the good work to go on. Otherwise we can get Co(ng)mmunists and then go to sleep for the next five years. I advocate the issue to be handled taccfully but firmly.

  6. Uniform Law, looks like a mirage under BJP

    1. As usual exceptionsal piece of writing, an insightful suggestion for the Govt to act upon. Only argument want to supplement is, Ganesh processions, Barat, or Kawariya’s makes use of road for going somewhere, I.e. what roads are meant for. Therefore this monkey balancing of slapped journo is not tenable, viz a viz Namaz on Roads.

  8. When cars run on footpath n someone dies the driver is punished cos footpaths r not for driving cars. Only roads r for driving cars so even jaywalkers r commiting a crime when walking on road. Only vehicles can use roads. If jaywalkimg is a crime why isnt it the same with this namaz thing? With congree that came with a sword to kill hindus openly atleast i know my enemys face n enemy attacks me from front..while bjp is a back stabber ..a coward who kills me without facing me n my u too brutus momemt...n what does our scriptures have to say about an enemy who attacks from behind?? An enemy who faces me is more worthy than one who attacls me from behind!!

    1. Similar pictures can be seen in some roads of Kolkata.
      Lenin Sarani, a very busy road in central Kolkata, gets it's Footpath near Esplanade area obstructed on Fridays due to Road Namaz.

  9. What makes you think Modi will be better in 2nd term ?
    I think he will be much worse !

  10. Even if it is Dr.Swamy,only that person approved by Adani, Ambani and Kosher deep state can be PM, not independent minded firebrands. Only Adityanath among all BJP CM is always getting favourable press. Why? Point to ponder.

  11. What nonsense is Modi doing? How can one community be given cart Blanche at the expense of all the others. Slowly India is going to be changed like Europe with Muslims infesting the streets like rats to pray. Disgusting. No civilized nation should allow this. Does Allah require them to pray in the streets? In addition to prayers it seems Allah enjoys a good civic disturbance too. Again VVV disgusting

  12. I have an incident to narrate related to this issue. Recently on my visit to Mumbai i happened to visit Big Bazaar outlet in Mogul Lane, Mahim, Mumbai. As I was strolling along the women clothing section i came across a Muslim woman doing namaz. Her companion had placed a shopping cart to prevent shoppers from disturbing her. In fact she prevented me from going near the racks by saying that I was disturbing the female doing namaz. I objected and continued with my shopping. Later on this female had the gall to seek me out and pontificate by advising me to respect religions. Not one to take this lying down i told her of by asking her in turn to respect public spaces and do her religious activity at her home. I even complained to the staff but nobody did anything. Hindus should now become aggressively aware and nip such things in the bud. I hope BJP is paying heed to the Hindu voice.
