Is Asaduddin Owasi aware of the outcome?
His each fiendish view strengthens Hindu Nationalism
“Mr. Advani, I am sorry, I am using your name. Through you, I would say that the population of Bangladesh, when Bangladesh was created, Muslims were three crore; Hindus were three crore. As of now, Muslims in Bangladesh are 13 crore; and Hindus in Bangladesh are 1.5 crore. Sea cannot swallow so many Hindus of Bangladesh! Where have they gone? This is the question I leave it to the wisdom of Mr. Advani.”
This issue was raised by not any mere Mullah but by Mr. Asaduddin Owasi, Member of Parliament from Hyderabad, belonging to MIM (Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen). He was speaking on August 8, 2012 in Parliament –time when Assam was witnessing worst Hindu-Muslim clash in the last decade almost.
The very member is not any Joe Public but holds a degree of Barrister-at-Law (Lincolns Inn). Yet, being devoted to his Islamic identity, he did not waffle even for a bit prior to making a scathing attack on Mr. LK Advani.
Now the question remains where from the Islamist MP has got this atrocious info from? We the Hindus want to know from him the period when the population of Bangladesh was divided equally between Hindus and Muslims. According to governmental records, Hindus formed 22% in East Pakistan in 1947 and that diminished in the following years, thanks to recurrent genocides of Hindus by their Islamic fraternity. Nowadays, Hindus form 10% of the entire population in Bangladesh.
The saga started with the Barisal genocide in 1950 and owing to repeated genocides through 60,70s, 80s, 90s and the first one-and-a-half decade of this century, the population of Hindus is dwindling fast in Bangladesh. Researches confirm that 49 million Hindus are missing Bangladesh. A chunk of it has entered Indian states as well to flee from mounting Islamic persecution there.
And they are nothing apart from refugees. Does Asaduddin Owasi know the definition of refugees as stated by UNHCR? As per UNHCR, “A refugee is someone who has been forced to flee his or her country because of persecution, war, or violence. A refugee has a well-founded fear of persecution for reasons of race, religion, nationality, political opinion or membership in a particular social group. Most likely, they cannot return home or are afraid to do so. War and ethnic, tribal and religious violence are leading causes of refugees fleeing their countries.”
Does Owasi find any similarity between Bengali Hindus and Muslims from Bangladesh in this context?
Islamists, to be precise, entering from Bangladesh to India, hell-bent to change demographic scenario in East India, including Bengal and Assam, are illegal migrants.
Illegal migrants are sent back by any civilized country but not the refugees – the issue being acutely humanitarian. But Owasi wants to castigate Bengali Hindus than his coreligionists more – an issue that invokes laughter and Hindu wrath only simultaneously.
Yet Owasi will go on harping the same leading to a day when the third wave of radicalization among Muslim youth will be subdued by the first wave of radicalization among Hindu youth in India.
