Barbaric murder in Udaipur: Prophet was a messenger of peace and compassion

Khudai Khidmagar India statement condemning the barbaric murder in Udaipur:

Khudai Khidmagar India strongly condemns the brutal and barbaric murder in Udaipur and said such heinous savagery cannot be justified in any way. Constitution is the only way while taking the law into your own hands is a criminal inhuman act .
Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wa salaam) was indeed a Messenger of Peace and Compassion. He is an ideal human for mankind. The religion “Islam” which Holy Prophet (SAW) practiced itself bears the literal meaning ‘PEACE’ . Prophet also reminded the people that ‘All of mankind belongs to Allah’s family’. He further said to his followers that a Muslim can diminish hatred by showing their love towards people and also a Muslim can destroy the aggressiveness by spreading peacefulness.
It is nurturing of hate and violence which brought us to this point. Hence, it becomes more important and ever relevant to continue efforts in the direction on non-violence, peace and humanity.
Harvest of hate is fatal to the human existence . People involved any in such act can never be a follower of any religion as the base of every religion in the world is love , peace and humanity.
Immediate and strict legal action should be initiated against the accused. Justice must be insured to the victim's family along with compensation to the dependents who have suffered loss.
Path of violence and bigotry is a dark tunnel with no end. We appeal to the countrymen to maintain peace, law and refrain themselves from the rumours. Avoid being reactionary and all efforts should be made for peace and brotherhood
Hate and violence is weeding our social structure . Young and old across all sections are equally being effected by this hence, there a urgent need to work on it .We appeal civil society, social organizations and individuals to put all coordinated - united efforts for peace , humanity and against hate.

In a statement to the media, the Vice President of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind, Prof Salim Engineer said: "We condemn the barbaric and uncivilized murder of Kanhaiyalal of Udaipur. There is no room for justification for such violence in Islam. Those found guilty of his murder should be punished according to the law of the land. The government must stop mischief-makers from taking advantage of this incident to create social unrest. Peace and law and order should be maintained at all costs. statements being issued by some political leaders show their immaturity and their ugly intention to play the vote bank politics. The incident reflects the growing tendency of people to take the law into their hands. This trend is dangerous for our society and should be curbed. People lose faith in the police and judiciary. if they either do not get justice or they feel prejudiced. Unfortunately, the political environment of our country is encouraging aggression and hatred and reducing empathy and tolerance. It is time for all peace and justice-loving citizens of our country to join hands and fight against hatred and violence".



Crucial to revisit roots, embrace core Hindu principles: love, compassion, harmony

A note on religious leaders'  Satya Dharam Samvad in Haridwar: *** In a groundbreaking gathering, more than 25 religious leaders including Swamis, Acharyas, Pujaris, Gurus, and Sadhvis from all over India convened to discuss the tenets of Hinduism on September 16th, 2023, in Haridwar, to discuss and discern the current trajectory of Hinduism. This brand new initiative, the Satya Dharam Samvad, was inspired to organize its first assembly in response to the December 2021 Dharma Sansad, where hate speech and calls for violence against the Muslim community contravened the essential principles of Hinduism. Religion is being used to incite riots among Hindus, Muslims, Christians, Buddhists, Jains, etc. In the face of such hatred, Swami Raghavendra felt that something meaningful should be done in the present climate.

Telengana peasant uprising 1946-51: Path breaking period in Communist movement

By Harsh Thakor  Telengana armed struggle from 1946-51 was path breaking period in the Indian Communist Movement, enabling it to reject the Russian insurrectionist path and emulate the Chinese model. The intensity of the movement escalated people’s democratic power to a scale unparalleled in Indian history. It literally dawned a new era. Revolutionary zeal climbed heights rarely traversed in semi-colonies. The death defying spirit which the comrades displayed in giving a blow to the Nizam ruler of Hyderabad and the Razakar landlords will be written forever in the red letters of history. Tragically it was crushed by the Congress party led by Nehru, who mercilessly ordered the army to swoop on the rebellion, with the Communist Party of India adopting a compromising position. It was ample proof of how Nehru and the Congress party collaborated with the feudal landlord class.

Regretful: Kapil Dev retired not leaving Indian cricket with integrity he upheld

By Harsh Thakor  Kapil Dev scaled heights as an entertainer and a player upholding the spirit of the game almost unparalleled in his era. In his time he was cricket’s ultimate mascot of sportsmanship On his day Kapil could dazzle in all departments to turn the tempo of game in the manner of a Tsunami breaking in. He radiated r energy, at a level rarely scaled in his era on a cricket field. Few ever blended aggression with artistry so comprehenisively. Although fast medium, he could be as daunting with the ball as the very best, with his crafty outswinger, offcutter, slower ball and ball that kicked from a good length. Inspite of bowling on docile tracks on the subcontinent, Kapil had 434 scalps, with virtually no assistance. I can never forget how he obtained pace and movement on flat pancakes, trapping the great Vivian Richards in Front or getting Geoff Boycott or Zaheer Abbas caught behind. No paceman carried the workload of his team’s bowling attack on his shoulders in his eras muc
