In “Agni Speaks” column, we will share our thoughts and feelings on miscellaneous things that touch us. True to Agni aka Fire, it will have no specific form, structure or pattern except that it will be flaming up.

Nun Gangrape

The Navaratras come with a sense of deep shame this year. An elderly nun was brutally raped by perverts in a state that is known for its worship of Durga. So entrenched is respect for women in Bengal that even the daughter is addressed as “Maa” or mother. On Navaratras we would feed young girls and show our respect as if they represent Durga Mata. Thus the event is most shocking.

A society that cannot respect the mother is bound for doom. It is time we announce brutal death sentence for every rapist irrespective of age and fast-track courts to resolve such cases within no time.

What was even more appalling than even the rape was the way this shameful incident was used as a tool for political and commercial victory by different stakeholders. The leaders of Church organization held protest rallies and many of them blamed Hindutva forces for this. The West Bengal government representatives also incriminated “Ghar Wapsi” for this. A few media houses went berserk in linking it to church attacks in Delhi, miscellaneous other attacks on minorities and finding an easy scapegoat in Hindutva and new government.

The same media condemns Khaps for being illegitimate judges but are the first ones to hold kangaroo courts to issue verdicts that increase their commercial gains.

How shameless is a society that makes business out of rapes of mother!

How conveniently everyone ignored that Ranaghat – where the tragedy happened – is not even a stronghold of any so-called Hindutva group including BJP! In the peak of Modi wave, BJP came a distant third in Lok Sabha elections. The constituency is represented by the ruling party TMC with more than 40% vote share.

The assembly constituency is again a TMC stronghold with almost 55% vote share. BJP does not have even 4% vote share.

On contrary, Mamata Banerjee has announced her commitment to legalizing illegal Bangladeshi immigrants several times. Vandalism against Hindu temples and idols have seen a huge upsurge in last 5 years. So why should this incident be not linked with pro-Bangladeshi stance of TMC? The entire world knows how much love fanatics of Bangladesh and Pakistan have towards Christians in general. Bangladeshi goons have already brought fame for themselves by killing, looting, raping minorities. Jihadi hatred against Christians is amply evident across the globe. ISIS beheadings is a recent example.

The pattern of gang-rape makes evident that it was not just a crime of passion or greed. It was driven by hatred and bestiality. It was in lines of the way ISIS glorifies its killings. No wonder what would emerge in future is that it was handiwork of Jihadis inspired by ISIS and Al Qaeda who were possibly helped by someone inside. And of course, the way government after government in Bengal are nurturing illegal Bangladeshis, they are putting entire country, and especially border districts in grave danger.


Ironically, while a lot of hype was made out of church attacks in Delhi, no communal angle nor any pattern could be brought out. They were either cases of burglaries, thefts, similar crimes and accidents like short-circuit. Statistically there have been many times more such “attacks” of similar nature on temples and gurudwaras of Delhi in same time period!

To give another example of communally-igniting  in some sections of media, here is an example from a recent front-page news headline published in Times of India on 22 March, 2015: “For lack of evidence, all 16 Hashimpura accused walk. 42 Muslims had died by ’87 massacre” by Sana Shakil.

I wonder what would have been the headline if those who died were not Muslims? Do we have separate criminal laws for Hindus and Muslims in the country? Or have no Hindus been ever been killed in massacres? In fact if we indeed start showcasing communal angles, irony is that the Indian history of last 1000 years can be termed as bloodiest, longest running and most brutal genocide of Hindus that put even ISIS to shame.

If someone was killed, an Indian was killed.  Hindu, Muslim, Christian does not matter. If a massacre happened, it is wrong, irrespective of who did it and to whom. Punishment must be severe. Period. Law does not differentiate on basis of religion. Why must media house do so? Merely for petty sensationalism? Or there is something deeper?

Solution to religious hatred

For some morons, it is difficult to digest that personal belief is indeed personal. You can talk as much as you want about why your belief-system is best, but eventually decision to choose a belief-system is personal. If you think someone is following a wrong belief-system, let God punish him. Why must you be an agent?

Ironically though, many religious shops of today thrive on hatred. Such shops must be destroyed to bring communal harmony.

To do it objectively, top 10 most popular publications of religious books of each religion must be brought. All publications taught in gurukuls, madarsas and convents must be also included. They will most probably include:

– Various translations of Gita, Ramcharitmanas, Hanuman Chalisa, Upanishads etc

– Various translations of Bible, stories of Bible etc

– Various translations of Quran, Hadiths etc

Now each of these must be reviewed for following:

– Does the publication claim that non-believers will go to Hell?

– Does the publication differentiate between believers and disbelievers?

If yes, all such books must be outrightly banned. Let the publishers bring out alternate translations that do not have these defects. No book – religious or non-religious – must be allowed in education that explicitly suggests punishment (divine or non-divine) and hatred against non-believers. These silly translations are making mess of our beautiful world.

  • -Supriya
    With due respect, I would like to inform you that Agniveers article is so foolish that he contradicts himself. Vedas contain such verses in large number.
    This guy sometimes write against and some times in favour of idol worship.
    Sometimes says WESTERN religions are different and sometimes Quote article saying every religion got it’s source from Vedas.

    You wrote:
    4.I agree with your suggestions. You are right to say that all religious books which claim that non believers will suffer in hell, should be banned. Actually these books should be discussed publicly so that TRUTH will triumph and falsehood will be defeated.

    Response :
    What about these passages.

    Atharva Veda 12.5.62 Rend, rend to bits, rend through and through, scorch and consume and burn to dust, the one who rejects the Vedas

    This passage doesn’t left any choice especially when all Christian’s, Muslims, Jews and others reject Vedas.

    I SAW AGNIVEERS DECEPTIVE ANSWERS REGARDING THIS BUT HE SHOULD SEE THIS. And his article Vedas and world peace is debunked thoroughly.

    On the previous verse

    Arya Samaj commentary on this verse states:

    ”Godly persons shall always be ready to kill irreligious people”

    [Kshemkarandas Trivedi (Arya Samaj) on Atharva Veda 12.5.62, p.576]

    He writes on Atharva Veda 12.5.54

    ‘‘Vedic followers should destroy infidels”- page 574

    NOW REGARDING THE TRUTH WILL PREVIAL, I tell you indeed! It will

    Qur’an 17:81
    And say: “Truth has (now) arrived, and Falsehood perished: for Falsehood is (by its nature) bound to perish.”

    Qur’an 21:18
    We bring forward the Truth to crush and destroy falsehood; it is doomed to be banished.

    • all commentaries are not true.the commentators give their i have explained earlier, the verse talks of the law,which is ved vani,manifested as the cow destroys the kshathriya who steals it and opresses the brahmana.its about the law of karma.
      the commentary given is out of context and to be rejected whichever scholar has given it.i just happened to see this comment of yours, so i commented here apart from our discussion on the same topic elsewhere.

  • 1.I would suggest to execute those devil rapists without allowing them to put their wicked mentality and thoughts using loopholes in laws. Don’t let them to hire lawyer.

    2.Agniveer I believe that Mamata Banerjee has embraced the faith of Bangladeshi intruders ( beggars).

    3.I expect from you that you would educate media members and let them know the Truth in scriptures of Sanatan Dharma so that they won’t be biased and prejudiced while reporting and anchoring the shows on news channels.

    4.I agree with your suggestions. You are right to say that all religious books which claim that non believers will suffer in hell, should be banned. Actually these books should be discussed publicly so that TRUTH will triumph and falsehood will be defeated.

    • So, it means if a person goes against the Law of the state He/She should not be punished.

      He should not be called as anti-nationalist. So, if Memon went against the law of nation then He also should had not

      be punished. What a sick mentality you people have. Perhaps it is the effect of Animal worshiping.

    • Dear Sister,
      Can you point out a single quote from Veda or any Hindu scripture who advocates
      capital punishment for RAPISTS but QURAN.
      Agniveer wants capital punishment for Rapists and it proves that he is coming to ISLAM.
      Do you know the difference between False hood and truth and If yes then you should not
      raise your voice in support of MAN MADE VEDAS.
      First study your self and then Invite the people to study all religious books and Indeed
      False hood will get defeat as It has born to get vanished.

      • in mahabharatha krishna says to draupathi,”any lineage where a woman is disrespected, the whole lineage will be estroyed”. this was the root cause for the destruction of kaurava clan. that hey disrobed draupathi in front of all officials.

  • @Jihadi hatred against………..
    request to agniveer plz don’t use the word jihadi for terrorist,who r working for earning money or some political/economical interest.jihad is the holy name for the people who fighting the enemy ,who come to fight with Muslim land with intention of killing,looting,…jihadi the term indicate the moral /ideal/pious people who fighting for protection of their ppl,blood,property against only warriors from the enemy,ISIS,boko haram,taliban,al quedha,etc are not Islamic ,they r either fabricated Islamic organisation or working for some physical earning……

    5: 32. Because of that We ordained for the Children of Israel that if anyone killed a person not in retaliation of murder, or (and) to spread mischief in the land – it would be as if he killed all mankind, and if anyone saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of all mankind.
    7: 33. Say, “My Lord has only forbidden immoralities – what is apparent
    of them and what is concealed – and sin, and oppression
    Without right
    Dawud :: Book 14 : Hadith 2639
    Narrated Jarir ibn Abdullah:
    The Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) sent an expedition to Khath’am. Some people sought protection by having recourse to prostration, and were hastily killed. When the Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) heard that, he ordered half the blood-wit to be paid for them,
    Bukhari :: Book 9 :: Volume 83 :: Hadith 49
    Narrated ‘Abdullah bin ‘Amr:
    The Prophet said, “Whoever killed a Mu’ahid (a person who is granted the pledge of protection by the Muslims) shall not smell the fragrance of Paradise though its fragrance can be smelt at a distance of forty years (of traveling).”
    9: 6. And if anyone of the Mushrikûn (polytheists, idolaters, pagans, disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah) seeks your protection then grant him protection, so that he may hear the Word of Allah (the Qur’ân), and then escort him to where he can be secure, that is because they are men who know not.

    • @Shabeer,

      By Jihad we imply the meaning popularized by mainstream Islamic scholars. Please refer Wikipedia page on Jihad for details. But as you said, Jihad has a different meaning. In that case, let all Islamic schools and scholars openly announce that to consider non-Muslims and polytheists as Jahannumi is against Islam and those who fight against idol-worship, Christianity, sufis, Jews etc are not Jihadis. We are completely in-line with them to promote this on our platform.

      • Dear Agniveer,

        ISIS or Al Qaeda or Media houses are not Mainstream Islamic scholars, and Wikipedia is also not source of Islam, Kindly refer Islamic resources i.e. Authentic translation and Hadith,
        Regarding the Jahannumi,if you think Jahannum is such a bad place better you embrace Islam and and Allah Invite you to paradise,Islam does not teaches you to hate Sinner but warn you to commit sins which will lead to Jahannum.In every religion and society people are alarmed to avoid crime and its consequences, similarly Allah warn its creature from day of Judgement and its torment.
        Islamic scholar all over the world are denouncing these organisation but we need ears to listen to them, definitely it will not be heard through mainstream media.

      • @Mohiuddin

        —–Regarding the Jahannumi,if you think Jahannum is such a bad place better you embrace Islam——

        What if someone calls you pig and asks you to convert to his religion if you object?

      • Dear Brother,

        What if you say 2+2=5. Is that correct? You should revert to the true calculation that is
        2+2=4. So, It you should not revert to Islam due to fear of Hell fire but you should
        revert to the true Religion by understanding the Quran and Sahih hadith.
        You should notice every verse of Quran carefully on the basis of Logic and Science.
        What is the problem in accepting a right thing?
        Think it and do not see the limited benefits of this world. Life is too short.
        Seek the truth and Accept it. And those who reject the truth are Indeed criminals.
        Like one who does not follow the constitution of his/her country is anti-nationalist.
        So we should not be anti-truth and we should accept the truth.

      • Dear Agniveer,

        To study or know about any religion is not to look to followers or scholars of the people.

        It is probable that every scholar may have his/her own opinion depending upon their

        worldly benefits like some Hindu Swami or Christian Missionary or Islamic missionary.

        To understand any religion, It is the best way to read the respective scriptures.

        To know Hinduism, One should not follow what the Agniveer Foundation or any Hindu Foundation

        say but We study the hindu scriptutres to know the hindiusm. it is the best way to understand

        any religion or any religious book. The same goes with Christianity and Islam as well.

        So, to understand the meaning of JIHAD, you should look into Quran and Sahih hadith.

        Scholar means NOTHING. Scholar carries no weight. Only Religious scriptures carries weight.

        I am laughing on your mentality that you always Judge the religion by People of the religion.

        What a nonsense mentality. So, stop making fools to all Human beings.

        I will also fight against every wrong allegations raised against Islam by Media and some Violent people.

        Israel and USA claim that they want PEACE. But in fact, They are the enemy of PEACE and you too

        are on the same line. Edword Snowden had already disclosed this policy of USA.

        ISIS is not any Islamic Organisation they are leading by Jews and the Chief Baghdadi is also a JEW.

        And any organisation who kills any innocent human being cannot be Islamic as mentioned

        in Surah Maida in Quran. So, this is a hidden agenda by Some people in this world to create

        terrorism in the name of Islam to stop the flow of Islam.

        But this black marketing of Islam is propagating the Islam instead of Stopping it.

        This is the quality of Islam. West is coming to Islam. Do you know the latest reports?

        It is not due to higher birth rate of Muslims but it is due to higher number of reversions to Islam.

        See what is going to happen in next 50 years in WEST?

        No one can…

    • Dear brother, Jihad actually means the Holy War against non-Muslims to propagate Islam. So, don’t bring your own meanings of it!

    • dekhe quran 8/65-66 jisme gair muslimo se” jehad “karne ka adesh qurani allah dete hai !
      dekhe quran 2-54 jisme sirf bachde ki puja karn eke karan apas me hatya karne ka adesh qurani allah dete hai !
      dekhe quran 9-5 jisme murtipujko ki ghat lagakar chipkar jana se marne ki baat kahi gayi hai

      • Jihad declare only the people who broken the agreement/mischief land/terrorism/injustice

        22:39. Permission to fight is given to those (i.e. believers against disbelievers), who are fighting them, (and) because they (believers) have been wronged, and surely, Allâh is Able to give them (believers) victory
        8: 56. They are those with whom you made a covenant, but they break their covenant every time and they do not fear Allâh.
        57. So if you gain the mastery over them in war, punish them severely in order to disperse those who are behind them, so that they may learn a lesson.
        60: 9. It is only as regards those who fought against you on account of religion, and have driven you out of your homes, and helped to drive you out, that Allah forbids you to befriend them. And whosoever will befriend them, then such are the Zâlimûn (wrong-doers those who disobey Allah).

      • Memon aur Afzal Guru ko phansi kyun di gayi?
        Woh donon hindu samudaye se toh nahi they.
        Yes, Ab kahoge ki woh donon anti-nationalist they. Isliye phansi di gayi.
        No problem. Toh Quran mein jin logon ko maarne ke liya kaha gaya woh bhi
        Afzal Guru aur Kasab jaise aman aur insaniyat ke dushman they.
        Yeh baat sirf un logon ke liye hi kahi gayi hai na ki saare non-muslims ke liye.
        Afsos, Ki aaj tak aap log Quran ko samajh hi nahi paaye aur wahi ghisi piti insaanon
