Attacks on mosques, businesses a precursor of full-blown Muslim genocide in India


ISLAMABAD: With the unabated attacks on mosques, houses and businesses run by the Muslims in different Indian states particularly Karnataka, it is strongly believed that the country was fast heading towards a “full-blown genocide.”

In a recent Genocide Emergency Alert for India, Prof Gregory H Stanton had said that the country had reached the eighth stage of genocide with the persecution of the Muslim community.

Prof Stanton, who is the architect of the “10 stages of genocide” theory and also the founder of Genocide Watch, a non-profit organization that works to predict and prevent genocide and all other forms of mass murder, said India was in the 8th stage of genocide.

“India is in Stage 8 of Genocide, the Persecution – just one step away from conducting extermination,” he said and added that the country’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi “will be very happy to watch it happen”.

In a recent spate of violence, the Muslims in Karnataka are being targeted by Hindu extremists backed by the politicians of ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

Besides burning their properties and attacking mosques and businesses, the right wing groups are calling upon Hindus not to employ the services of Muslim cab, tour and travel operators.

Muslims account for about 13% of the state’s nearly 70 million population.

The Muslims, who have been setting up their stalls since years at the annual Hosa Margudi and Kollur Mookambika fairs, and the Bappanadu Durgaparameshwari, Mangaladevi and Puttur Mahalingeshwara temples in Dakshina Kannada have been asked to keep away.

The calls to keep Muslims away from fairs started during the COVID-19, when the Hindu extremists alleged them for spreading the pathogen.

A Hindu shopkeeper who had installed his toy shop at the recently concluded Bappanadu Shri Durgaparameshwari Temple festival said that everyone has been silenced by the threat posed by pro-Hindu outfits.

“If I speak out against them, they will ensure I can’t install shops at other festivals.”

The Muslims in India had been questioning the role of the state institutions including police for not taking any action against those who had put up posters spreading hateful propaganda outside the fairs.

“Today, Hindu extremists in Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, Goa, Karnataka, and other Indian states attacked Muslims and their places of worship. These large-scale, well-orchestrated attacks serve as a precursor to the full-blown genocide,” Indian American Muslim Council said in a statement.

The Council also shared multiple videos showing anti-Muslim violence including the putting up of saffron flag on mosques, looting and burning a Muslim widow’s house, pelting stones at mosques and playing hate songs in rallies.
