A three day Conference starting March 5, 2007 in the city of St.
Petersburg, Florida, United States was organized by Intelligence Summit, a
non-partisan, non-profit educational forum. Intelligence Summit website
has recently surpassed in popularity even the Jane’s Weekly, the most
widely read source of intelligence news in the world.
In this Conference Maj. Gen. Paul E. Valley, Deputy Commanding General, US
Army (Retd.), Gen. Thomas G. McInerney USAF (Retd.), Cmdr. Richard
Marcinko, USN (Retd.), and many other former CIA officials,
counter-terrorism experts, and experts on Islamic studies participated in
deliberations and enlightened the audience about the danger posed to the
humanity at large by radical Islam, political Islam, Islamo-fascism,
Wahabi Islam, or by whatever name you call them. Some of the topics
discussed at length in the Conference were as under: Can radical Islam
escape the opprobrium that it is systematically using the violence,
threat, murder and terrorism to establish the Islamic Law called Sharia
all over the word?
Is the existential threat to humanity from the
political Islam real? Will the rising Muslim population in regions like
India, European Union and United States ultimately transmogrify the decent
and civilized people into suicide bombers prepared to kill all of us? Is
the doctrine of Jihad really meant for the purpose of purifying one’s
inner self only, as expounded selectively by the apologists of Islam all
over? Or, is the Jihad a doctrine of permanent military warfare eventually
to annihilate infidels and to subjugate them completely? Is there any way
out to mitigate the effects of this hateful ideology that not only
instigates but literally commands its followers to kill others in the name
of Allah? Should the civilized nations insist on the doctrine of
reciprocity while dealing with Islamic nations? Are the concepts of Dar-ul-Islam
(Islamic country) and Dar-ul-Harb (Enemy country) at the root of Islamic
terrorism? Is the Far Left media hand in gloves with the Jihadists? Is the
145-million strong Islamic nation Pakistan which is already armed with the
nuclear weapons and the missiles to deliver these weapons more dangerous
than Iran? Can the sanctimonious rhetoric of Pakistan that she is an ally
on ‘fighting the war on terrorism’ be relied upon at its face value? Is
Pakistan actually becoming a safe sanctuary for the terrorists, as often
reported? Will Bangladesh also, in not too distant future, turn into
the next global epicenter of the Islamic terrorism? Will the pervasive
prevarication of the political class and its willful malfeasance embolden
the political Islam, and ultimately ruin all of us?
Officials of the Indian American Intellectuals Forum of New York were
invited by the Intelligence Summit to speak on “Indian Experience with
Jihadists. In a small get together of VIPs, the President of IAIF, Mr.
Narain Kataria, Senior Vice President Mr. Arish Sahani and the Board
Member Mr. Mohinder Singh Gulati, brought to the attention of Gen.
McInerney the duplicitous, deceitful and disingenuous role played by
Pakistan’s Gen. Musharraf in the war on terror. They elaborated the
terrorist activities conducted by ISI and Far Left militants in collusion
with the sleeping cells in the region, and the unparalleled atrocities
perpetrated by Islamic invaders in the past on peaceful Hindus. Gen.
McInerney expressed confidence that a very powerful action would take
place at an appropriate time which would eliminate terrorism completely
from the Earth.
In the Conference deliberations, Dr. Babu Suseelan, a Board Member of
Indian American Intellectuals Forum and a well-known Hindu scholar
presented the Hindu view point to the Conference delegates covering
India’s past and present History.
Hindu View Point on the Islamic Terrorism - Addressing the gathering, Dr.
Suseelan said: “In the first instance, it gives me great pleasure to thank
all of you for giving me an opportunity to present before this august body
the Hindu views relating to their Experience with the Islamic Jihadists of
“I am a firm believer in Hinduism, the ancient civilization of India, with
more than one billion adherents. We Hindu people believe in the peaceful
coexistence with all cultures and religions on the globe. Hindu people, in
the past known history, never went out of their country to attack, loot,
rape and forcibly convert other nations to their way of thinking. We have
maintained this civilized tradition for almost 6000 years. India like
United States, has always given unconditional shelter to the tired, sick
and persecuted people from other countries. India has provided the freedom
of religion, freedom of speech, equality and justice to all. India is,
probably, the only country in the world where Jewish people were never
persecuted. As recently as in 1950, India gave shelter to Dalai Lama and
thousands of his followers who were driven from their native land, Tibet,
by the Communist China.
To the bewilderment, dismay and shock of the audience, Dr. Suseelan
poignantly described the cruelties that were perpetrated on hapless Hindus
during the long Islamic rule as under: “The barbarity, the butchering, the
savagery practiced by the practitioners of Islam were so extreme in
nature, so enormous in scope, so stark in reality, so brutal in action
that they demand eternal condemnation from the civilized world. The utter
vandalization of India under the Islamic rule continued for a long period
of 600 years. There is a deep stamp of hatred and Islamic vengeance in
each and every city all over the country in India.”
Tracing the history of India, Dr. Suseelan narrated: “Before the advent of
Islam, Afghanistan was a Buddhist nation. To safeguard their ancestral
religion and beliefs, the brave people of Afghanistan confronted the
brutal Islamic invaders for 300 years but finally were defeated and, then,
Islamized. After converting to Islam, the same non-violent Buddhists
eventually turned into the Talibans of today. They took to terrorism and
even destroyed the centuries old priceless statues of Bamyan Buddhas. In
1990, these fanatics forcibly drove out or converted the 50,000 Hindu-Sikh
minority population of Afghanistan.”
Quoting Mr. M.A. Khan of Islamic Watch, Dr. Suseelan said: “Eleventh
century saw the barbaric assault of Sultan Mahmud of Ghazni on India.
Mahmud’s army slaughtered 15,000 fighting men in what they described as
the ‘splendid action’ before capturing 500,000 men and women as slaves.
The barbarity and cruelty of Sultan Mahmud was proudly and vividly
described by contemporary Muslim historians. In the attack on Thanesar,
‘the blood of the infidels flowed so copiously that the stream was
discolored and the people were unable to drink it’. Mahmud attacked and
destroyed the famed Somnath temple in the Western India and massacred over
50,000 Hindus guarding the temple.
“Sultan Allauddin Khaliji (1296-1316) attacked Chittor in the present
Rajasthan State and killed 30,000 people in cold blood. No wonder that
50,000 slave boys were engaged in his personal services and 70,000 slaves
worked continuously in his buildings. Firoz Tughlaq, who ascended the
throne in 1351, killed another 180,000 Hindus in Bengal and erected the
infamous ‘Tower of Skulls.’
“As recently as 1946, the Muslims slaughtered more than 5,000 Hindus in
Kolkata in one day alone and threatened Hindus at large that this action
would be repeated in all the major Indian cities if Hindus refused to the
partitioning of India; this ultimately was agreed upon. In 1947, India was
divided into the Hindu India and Muslim Pakistan. Hindus mistakenly
believed that by agreeing to the separate Muslim Pakistan their problems
with the Islam would be over.
“But in Pakistan, the worst reign of repression awaited the minority
Hindus. Millions of them were uprooted, butchered and slaughtered like
chicken and goats. Hundred of thousands of Hindu girls were kidnapped.
Their chastity violated, they were raped and forcibly married to Muslims.
“Muslims ethnically cleansed
the entire Hindu-Sikh population from Pakistan, the land they got from
partitioning of the historic India. They systematically used all official
machinery and resources to reduce the Hindu population to merely 2% from
its earlier 20% in 1947. “Bangladesh is another perfect example of the
ethnic cleansing. Its population of Hindu-Buddhists-Christians was about
39% in 1947. During the 1971 India-Pakistan war, Hindus were the prime
target of genocide and gang rape by Islamic Pakistani army. In a period of
nine months, three million people were mercilessly murdered by Pakistan
army, of which more than 80% were Hindus. From then on, the covert and
overt assault on Hindus continued relentlessly. Three hundred thousand
girls were raped, out of which 95% were Hindu girls. Over ten million
Hindu refugees took shelter in India.
“The slaughter of Hindus in subcontinent continued and the world remained
unperturbed. In 1990, more than 400,000 Hindus were forcibly driven from
the Indian controlled Jammu and Kashmir region by the Jihadists that were
militarily trained and funded by Pakistan’s intelligence agency, ISI
(Inter Services Intelligence).”
There are articles in Koran which enjoin on Muslims as under: “O Prophet!
Make war against the unbelievers and the hypocrites and be unyielding to
them; and their abode is hell, and evil is the destination.” And in 8:12,
the Koran says, “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who
disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every
fingertip of them.”
The big question that still remains is: “Have these Koranic injunctions on
Muslims outlived their utility? Is it not possible to adequately modify
the above religious teachings in Islam so as to suit the needs of modern
civilization,” quipped Dr. Suseelan.
The Rising Muslim Population in South Asia, the Greatest Danger to the
In South Asia the number of Muslims at this time is as under: India 150
million, Pakistan 145 million, Bangladesh 140 million and Afghanistan 16
million. Thus the total number of Islamic people in the region is about
450 million; one and half time the US population. South Asia is sitting on
a tinder box. Hindus alone will not be able to stem the wrath of ferocious
brutes. Hence the cooperation between India, Israel and United States is
absolutely essential to save the world from the impending doom and
It is difficult for a civilized person to understand the Muslim psyche.
Hindus foolishly thought that by conceding to the demand for Pakistan,
they could buy peace with the Muslims. They were one hundred percent
wrong. Now Islamic Pakistan and Muslims are aiming at the separation of
Kashmir from India. It is a matter of great regret that many Hindu
scholars, particularly the Far Left Liberals in India, still fondly
believe that coexistence with Islamic people is possible!
Why the converts to Islam ultimately end up being the terrorists?
Appealing to the top-notch experts on the counter-terrorism, Dr. Suseelan
asked them to ponder over the question as to why the converts to Islam
become violent and fanatic and kill the innocent people without any
remorse. Is there something in their religious scriptures which motivates
them to kill in the name of Allah?
Dhiren Barot, a Hindu convert to Islam, became Al Qaeda’s top operative.
His Islamic name is Abu Musa al-Hindi. He traveled to Pakistan for
terrorist training in 1995. He has written a book “The Army of Medina in
Kashmir.” In this book, he has described in detail as to how to kill the
Indian army in Kashmir. He conducted a good amount of research work in the
field of radiological weapons which he wanted to use in the terrorist
attacks on New York Stock Exchange, International Monetary Fund
Headquarters, World Bank, etc.
Adam Gadahn, an American, converted to Islam at the age of seventeen rose
to the position of top operative of Al Qaeda operations. In one of his
speeches in 2005, he said: “We love slitting the throats of Infidels.” He
invited Americans to convert to Islam before it is too late. He praised
the attackers of the World Trade Center as “dedicated, strong-willed and
motivated individuals.” His Islamic name is Azzam al-Amriki (Azzam the
Mohammad Ali Jinnah, the Father of Pakistan, was grand child of a Hindu
and very secular at heart. But when he came in contact with Imams (Muslim
priests), he became a dangerously fanatic Muslim and broke India into two
The current ground situation in the South Asia is fraught with dangerous
consequences. There has been an astronomical rise in Islamic
fundamentalism in India. Islamists, in democratic societies like India,
exploit the vulnerabilities of constitutional governance to the hilt.
Almost all the Hindu leaders in India are facing death threats from the
Islamic extremists. Muslims use chicanery, stratagem and subterfuge to
beat the democratic system. Imam of Ghaziabad district in India has
appealed to Muslims to adopt the Sharia law to settle their dispute.
In February, 2007, the State Assembly of Jammu and Kashmir passed a bill
bringing the country's only Muslim-majority state in the ambit of Sharia
laws. Moved as a private member's bill from the Opposition leader Abdul
Rahim, the House passed the legislation by a voice vote without any
Hindu leaders killed in India
The India Government at this time is so wracked of Islamic rowdies that
two days after the Mumbai bombings in July 2006 -- that killed more than
180 people -- the government of India issued a directive banning 17
websites that were critical of Muslim misdeeds. These websites were
singled out because, according to the Indian government, they might incite
religious violence. The nine American websites banned by India are all
critical of the Islamist movement. Shockingly enough, not a single website
of the Islamic extremists justifying -- and even celebrating -- the Mumbai
bombings was banned.
According to Mr. Fitzgerald of the “Jihad Watch,” 60 to 70 million Hindus
were killed by Islamic Jihadists (http://www.jihadwatch.org/dhimmiwatch/archives/015399.php#more).
However, it is a matter of disgrace that no Hindu leader in India ever
broaches on this subject. Actuated by a desire to crush and obliterate the
Hindu people in India, an overt and covert war has been unleashed by
Jihadists on them. The aim is to frighten them into submission and push
them into the vortex of pan-Islamic movement.
Islamic communalism has taken a fatal turn in Bihar and U.P. -- two of the
biggest -- provinces in India. According to Pramod Kumar, a renowned
Indian journalist, more than three dozen Hindu leaders have recently been
eliminated by the Islamists. Hindu leaders are murdered in the broad
daylight by Islamic goons. Mr. Sukhanand Shetty was murdered by Islamic
fundamentalists in Dec. 2006. In January, one Hindu leader Mr. Ravindran
was brutally murdered by Jihadists. On February 12, one Hindu Mr. V.K.
Shaju was attacked and killed. In Assam more than 60 Hindus were killed by
a separatists group in North East India allegedly supported and trained by
One Muslim scholar Mr. Tawfik Hamid loudly declared in the Conference that
the militant Islam is a cancerous disease and has to be eradicated. “We
have to liquidate this mindset, or else it would wipe us out,” thundered
Mr. Hamid amidst a great ovation.
Dr. Suseelan spoke with volcanic intensity for about an hour and won
accolades of the audience. In the end, Dr. Suseelan fervently appealed to
the global experts on counter-terrorism and Islamic studies to emerge from
torpor, come out openly to denounce the ideology of savagery and hate. The
need of the hour is the leaders with farsightedness, perspicacity and
Machiavellian steeliness to them who can find the lasting solution to the
fast spreading menace of Islamic terrorism in the world.
