Bomb blasts in Malegaon (Maharashtra) and Modasa (Gujarat). Nun raped in Khandamal – in front of the police!!! We are going through the worst of times. We need a permanent solution to the issue of misguided Muslim youth taking the path of violence. Just like we analysed the facts that led to Hindus attacking Christians and zeroed in on preaching as the reason (conversion was not the reason – but preaching was) – we need to see the root reason why a lot of Muslims take to violence. A lot of us reach the wrong conclusion that ‘Muslims are all like that’, ‘they deserve to be in Pakistan’ etc.
1. Backwardness and illiteracy
2. Violence against them not investigated properly and punished
3. Increase interaction between them and various other communities to resolve various common problems. Government should encourage local boards/organisations which make such interaction possible.
4. Discrimination against them should be made punishable. Discrimination against anybody (not just Muslims) should be made punishable.
5. They must be given reservation – to bring up their lot.
Anybody could figure out other solutions ……..are most welcome to post them. Don’t attack the people attack the problem!!!
