For the past few years, Islamophobia and hate against Muslims have grown at an unprecedented rate in India without any consequences. And like most things Indian, this bigotry has also gone international. But while bigots in India have enjoyed a free run with direct and indirect support of members in the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party and even Narendra Modi government, the situation for bigoted Indians living abroad, such as in the Gulf and now Canada, has taken a different turn.

After several incidents of Indian expatriates in the Gulf countries being called out for their Islamophobic tirade on social media and getting sacked by their employers, it was Canada’s turn to take down such hate.

Ravi Hooda, a real estate agent based in Ontario, was angered by Brampton mayor Patrick Brown’s tweet over exemptions given in the city’s noise bylaws to allow azaan (call to prayer).

“What’s next? Separate lanes for camel & goat riders, allowing the slaughter of animals at home in the name of sacrifice, bylaw requiring all women to cover themselves from head to toe in tents to appease the piece fools for votes,” he tweeted in reply.

It was lost on the Islamophobe that the exemption was earlier limited to church bells and was now being extended to all faiths. Perhaps, he also forgot that he was in Canada, and not in India, where such remarks draw thousands of likes and retweets. But he soon learnt his lesson.

Hooda, who later deleted his tweet, was called out by several Twitter users, including Canada’s Anti-Hate Network, for his vile comments. The real estate company he was associated with terminated his services. He has also been removed as the School Council Chair by the Macville Public School.

This follows the recent trend seen in the Gulf countries where several Indian expatriates have been fired for their Islamophobic posts targeting Muslims for the spread of Covid-19.

While Canada has won praise for its swift action against Islamophobia, things back home are not that great with hate mongers having a field day — despite several Gulf nations being vocal about it and asking the Modi government to take action.

Kosher in India, so works everywhere

Over the past few years, hate and communal polarisation, specifically targeted at the Muslim community, has emerged as a low-cost election winning formula for India’s political class. With already existing deep chasms of insecurity and communal divide, it takes no more than a dog whistle to act as communal kindling.

Indian social media, especially since the run-up to the 2014 Lok Sabha election, has seen a steady rise in hate targeted at Muslims, blaming them for almost every evil besetting the country.

The factual accuracy, and history, of hate mongers may be as bad as their logic, but they all manage to achieve the intended result – violence against Muslims.

If it passes muster in the homeland, if there are no repercussions here, why not replicate it elsewhere — or so goes the belief. This bigotry is so normalised that many Indians working and living in the Gulf countries, a predominantly Muslim majority region, see no problem in spreading this vitriol.

But unlike previous occasions when the Gulf countries had taken a customary stand on targeting of Muslims in India, the Arab world is more vocal and proactive this time. The fact that this hate is being spewed by the Indian diaspora working in these countries has also hit home. It may not bode well for the Indian economy, because expatriates from the region send a significant amount of remittances back home. India has held the top position as recipient of international remittances for a few years now, with the Gulf nations alone contributing more than 50 per cent of the total.

CoronaJihad, CAA, NRC – chickens have come home to roost

Majority Indians’ unadulterated hate against Muslims risks undoing not only the social fabric that keeps the country together in a deeply polarised world, but also the economic benefits that help a large section of the country’s migrant citizens. But if the past months have shown anything, even a national health emergency is ineffective in curtailing Islamophobia; on the contrary, it can be a major tool in flaming it.

Between 28 March and 3 April, the hashtag ‘CoronaJihad’ appeared three lakh times on Twitter and close to 30 crore people were reportedly exposed to the hate.

The Tablighi Jamaat congregation in Delhi and the subsequent demonisation of the Muslim community as the villain was just another chapter out of India’s Right and the IT cell handbook on how to target minorities.

Probably not wanting to rock the relationship boat with the Arab world, which recently bestowed several awards on him, PM Modi paid a delayed lip service and called for unity in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic.

Overall, though, no one in his government batted an eyelid when Muslims were violently attacked or when incidents of their social and economic boycott by Hindus began to be reported from all over India.

But the international community showed it’s not blind to the hate, even if it’s beset with its own problem of fighting the pandemic.

In an annual report, the US Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) listed India among “countries of particular concern” that would be subject to sanctions if they do not improve their records.

“In 2019, religious freedom conditions in India experienced a drastic turn downward, with religious minorities under increasing assault,” the report said.

With Canada now joining the league, there’s hope that the action of other countries will shake-up our conscience.

  1. I think Hindus are targeted right now. These people are only playing victim cards with the support of their own Muslim countries. We Hindus can’t even speak our voice in our own country. Perhaps this is the situation God knows what will happen after a few years. And so called Hindu liberals will also get converted for their greed.

  2. Kashmiri pandits (majority as you people call hindus ) were forced to vacate Kashmir. ( this was not mughul time, unfortunately maybe the history books you read only had mughul time )

    Number of such incidents have occurred in india in different parts where ethinic cleansing of hindus was carried out. No action from govt.

    ( Would love to see a day how will people react in countries like Canada ( who are now considering to allow other faiths to practice freely as per will, which India had it for years and centuries) to when the similar things would start happen what happens in india.
    – namaz on roads and blocking roads
    – anti national sentiments and slogans in public
    – considering to have people converted and forced for conversions ( religious activities )
    – misusing powers and rights of democracy, right to protest and demonstration but there is no right of forcing a govt. to fulfil baseless demands on sucidal terms.
    – wanting everything but 0 interest in contributing to the society and nation.
    – anti national slogans and favouring the state terrorists.

    If muslims in India are having so much of an issue why are they still living in India, there father MA Jinah got them pakistan and recognised it as an islamic state , they must consider going over there.

    Muslims ( actually sanatan followers who were forced to accept Islam and began barbaric act of killing hindus in their own neighbourhood and also now thinking that they are descendants of arabs – identity crises)in India, have always committed acts which has caused trust deficits, they have never termed themselves as proud indians ( majority of them).

    There is no denial in the fact that every muslim is like that, but the larger question is muslims need to stand up in India and oppose these idiotic and anti national acts committed by their fellow muslims. They never stood up in past where , at the time of ethinic cleansing taking place in their neighbourhood, also they are not standing up now.

    They have a victim card, if a muslim is a convict of rape no disclosure if hindu is the one then everything is disclosed. ( people were done with these type of acts in india ) ( by the way more 20% of population is not minority, pakistan was 30% hindus , today hardly 1%, why your corrupt and biased heart does not recognise the cryings and screams of these hindus in pakistan and support india for CAA, sanatan principles got Bengali Bangladesh it was not Islamic principles , India won the war and carved out a new nation which was historically our land , is this joke to you ? )

    The list can go on, long story short , stop using your western first world problem projections upon issues in India ( from religion perspective they are way more advanced than your judgemental mind could accomodate, it will take another 50-60 years for such problems to occur in the west ( EU has witnessed some ), from scale perspective , 1.3 billion people in a democracy where people having freedom of expressing anti national sentiments snd world able to listen to them is not a joke , it is not a pusedo democracy which you westerns call it is a real chaos which progressing smoothly , again your judgemental minds can never comprehend.

    To all my fellow indians and sanatan followers, we were never weak before nor today, despite of 550-600 years of islamic torture and then british torture upon us we are still in majority today in Bharat from beliefs and living principles perspective this shows the power and inner strength we posses, we have a proud history which unfortunately was distorted but we must be proud of what we are and who are ancestors were. These idiotic articles are baseless and far from truth and reality.

    • We can only see that you mind is totally corrupted & their is sense of bias & Hatred has been infected in you by the prominent Sold Media of our Nation.

      Simply, India is for Indians & not belongs to any religion or particular Caste who is eager to subjugate. The section tht you are targeting first of all they are Indians & they don’t have to prove their loyalty to any1.

      What is happening right now with indian Muslims is start of hatred had been unleashed & we as Indians should stand firm together & support our brothers, Failing which this hatred will move to other Minorities one by one with different propoganda & finally my dear it will come to us on the basis of Caste. Don’t Sell of your Brian.

      Be a Nationlist & not a Racist.
      KARMA says What Poison you throw around & well come around. We join hands & build a a India to be ruled on the basis of Talent Ppl & not on the basis of any Caste hierarchy.

  3. Indian army looks like hindus but maybe or may not, if they are why they encourage all Muslims politics, why 10 million Iranians are there in India, why they have 5 millions afgans are they performing any fight for Muslims

  4. Indian Hindus needs to wake up and come out into the real world. Stop! Blaming Pakistan for your rubbish government! Your Hitler government is creating all those problems…. Indians in UK needs to take a firm action against there government in India.

  5. Things are changing in India – Hindus have started asserting their rights after 70 years of independence. Why should Hindus be treated as second class citizens in a Democratic India? Justified laws for Muslims were not implemented.
    Yes, equality sucks – especially when your second class Hindu citizens are treated equally to you – the whole Muslim community takes notice and starts to play a victim game.
    What the guy in Canada did – I don’t support it – I also do not support what Muslims are doing in India.

    • When were Indians treated as second class in India?
      That was in Mughal era. Not since then. Their status was lost when the British came.

      • Kashmiri pandits (majority as you people call hindus ) were forced to vacate Kashmir. ( this was not mughul time, unfortunately maybe the history books you read only had mughul time )

    • Mulle Bsdk.. You ppl are Bigots, sending ur moms and sis to maulvis for halala nd telling us bigots..😂😂🐷🐷

  6. In Canada, we treat everyone equally, even if you are Muslim, Christian, Jewish, or any other ethnicity. That’s until someone decides to use social media to condem, berate, or cause discomfort to another group, and then, whoever is the cause of the problem, finds out in a hurry that they should’ve just kept their racist remarks to themselves. This racist, whom I won’t mention because he doesn’t deserve the attention, may find his stay in Canada very uncomfortable from now on. He will be berated by the media, and as mentioned in the article, he’s already lost his job, which is deserved, considering how malicious his remarks were towards Muslims. The Canadian government now needs to revoke his visa, and he needs to be deported ASAP in order for any other Indian or foreign subjects who harbor racist views think twice about coming to Canada and try to promote their he hateful views here. Canada is a place of tolerance, with a lot of different people from all over the world, and we don’t need racists to change what we Canadians stand for. Those that are racist have been warned, we in Canada don’t want u here.

    • Well said. We used to think of ourselves like that.
      Government would promote the idea that our diversity was what defined us. Now that gets berated.
      But that was just on the surface. Deep down there were always tensions – riots and massacres, every now and then.
      Now the situation seems to have reversed. We have open hostility, but at least no major riots and massacres for some years, at least for now.
      I hope we have the best of both (harmony on surface and beneath) and don’t devolve to the worst of both.

      I hope we grow up as a nation and see religion as a quaint and silly notion, rather than the most important identity.

    • i agree that his tweet was offensive. But firing a guy over a tweet and destroying his livelihood is wrong.
      The company could have requested him to make an apology instead of firing him.

    • I thought there was freedom of expression in Canada. Private companies are entitled to act as per their wish but you asked for a person’s visa to be revoked because you didn’t like what he said – that’s something else. Also, religion isn’t a race, despite the amount of drum beating from Ben Affleck. Religion can’t be accorded special status and isn’t untouchable. It is an idea and it can.. No.. It must be challenged. Hinduism has been torn to shreds via psycho-sexual analysis throughout the last 150 yrs – even if it is wrong, unethical and disingenuous to make misleading interpretations, it is well within their right to do so – challenge and explore ideas. Your perspective is one that promotes a non-confrontational attitude but not one that promotes freedom or free exchange of ideas and speech. This will set the course for divisiveness and ghettoization like the US in Canada. Be my guest – suppress free speech.

  7. “The Print” team, now people understand ur propagandas…
    Jo Hindus ab se pahle keval khane kamane mai lage rahte the wo ab nationalism aur apne dharm ke bare mai bhi sochne lage hai… Yahi baat kisi bhi so called liberals aur seculars ko hazam nahi ho pa rahi hai isliye bharat ab logo ko islamophobic lagne laga hai…. Sabko yahi pblm hai isiliye intolerance jayada dikhai de rahi hai…. Aur tum jaise journalists ki daaru parties and free ki world trips band ho gayi hai tum log to isliye pareshaan ho…..

    • You are an idiot! I don’t care about Pakistan. I would like to see my country to do good. Stop this non-sense or one day our future generation will pay for it. You guys embarrassing our country on International level. We need economy to do good as we need to feed 1.3 billion people. we can’t afford this non-sense. Honestly think big picture and If you can’t do anything for your country then stay quiet

      • Stop caring about what others think about you dude. It is ridiculously naive to assume that everyone out there is a good faith player who’s intent is to play a fair and neutral arbiter. Their sheer lack of knowledge, wisdom and a incredible flair in marketing is all but too evident. They will spend an inordinate amount of time in photo ops for moral positioning than actually bothering to understanding ground issues. They care only for optics. The sooner you realize this, the better it is. We, the Hindus, understand the situation far better than the world whose understanding is limited to their exposure of biased puff-piece loving news reports. You’ll be surprised to know how badly run, global govts are and where we stand. Peel the layers and understand beyond the facade of how their govts (decision making process) are run.

  8. For Hindus, Bharat is their only country left, to survive. If they are prosecuted anywhere in the world, for raising their voice against injustice, they can always return to their hindu homeland.

  9. I just wnt to say one thing “CANADIANS ARE GOING TO REGRET IT” simple and straight. Tarekh Fateh is there trying to tell you but you Idiots are failing to understand. Well God Bless and wait till your Churches are converted into Mosques.

  10. these minorities loot every benefit from Indian govt. ,,and at last play victim card & blame india as a Islamophobic nation,they get reservations in education,jobs,self-rule & subsidies for their secular minority educational institutions ,in Karnataka their is a ridiculous scheme where money is given for their each marriage also (shaadi bhagya),,whereas hindus as minorities in Pakistan & Bangladesh get nothing & r treated like dogs there, everybody know that thousands of hindus migrate from that islamic countries to escape religious persecution ,whereas we r pampering our minorities here,but they want to lick arab’s boots,,what to do ????

    • Another fake news spreading Sanghi!. Either your head is full of cow dung or you are part of IT cell whose job is to act as per 2 gays in power!

      • Pls read the Quran thoroughly – it is likely that you don’t understand Arabic (heck classical Arabic is a difficult read even for the native speakers). You can read the Quran and hadith translated into English (the international editions are not an exact translation but it is a good start – they’ve made edits to avoid embarrassing scientific inaccuracies). You’ll likely start to appreciate Eastern religions a little better – which are more pantheistic/deist /atheistic.

  11. I appreciate Canadian fairness. But I hope this does not devolve into abuse of loud speakers.
    Religious calls are fine as long as they don’t use loud speakers.
    At my place, temples abuse them, in other places, mosques. The sound level is a nuisance and police won’t act.
    Religious loud speakers should not have an exception for decibel levels.

  12. Once the jinnah said, indian Muslim have to proof at each and every steps toward the loyalty for India and we are doing

    But some fools people have forget that nation is different thing and ruling party is another things

    First of all they have to understand the constitution of India,,

    The things is that they have bcome so much blind in the name of hindutva that they are now refusing to accept the constitution now saying that India should run according to manusmriti….

    Bro India is the only country were all faith are found everyone is enjoying it except some fools and mind washed people..

    • Hindutva is India’s version of Taliban.
      Let’s go back to fictional old days because who cares about learning science and modern thinking.
      Everything was better according to them in the past. It’s like they got their history from TV Ramayana.

      • Sure Sashya. Have you read the Quran and read any of the Hindutva works?? – have you bothered to compare both to make the statement that Hindutva Is the same as Taliban. Pls do read and let us know if you will still stick to your thoughts that both are the same. To me the difference seems quite clear. I’m curious how it looks to you.

    • Why drag Manu Maharshi in now. The Muslim Invadors have enslaved this nation and conversion took place on daily basis. Many temples and Gurdwara were ransacked. But the Great Hindu Hridaya Samart Sri Shivaji Maharaj , Guru Govind Singh and Maharana Pratap saved our culture and community. Muslim are basically Terrorists by nature. Difficult to change their mind set because their religion is based on fate, killing and invading. Some paid Indian are working for them. They are ready forgo any and everything for money.

      • If you are going to call anyone with a different opinion as “paid”, you will live in your bubble and never grow.

  13. Sometime The columns by Journalist of The Print and The Hindu should be about the state of affairs and conditions in non-democratic countries. Sadly, Either they don’t have courage or it seems that they are being paid to write against the democratic countries citing one or two example by individual and morphing the whole. .

  14. I have question for ” the print” how come u never print anything about the ” HINDU man who ws beaten up and tortured by a gang of MUSLIM MEN jus for sharing a post which praised narendra modi govt. this happened in a gulf country. Similary a chef working in a prominent hotel in gulf was kicked out his job for supporting CAA. There are plenty of similar cases reported from gulf where HINDU employees were kicked out of their jobs for supporting uniform civil code , abolishment of muthwalak ( related to india) and all these firms are owned by MUSLIMS. HOW COME THE PRINT NEVER PRINT THE HINDU PERSECUTION ?? WHY THE BIASED PRINTING?

  15. The creation of a World Hindu Organization is needed urgently with cream of creams, no madrashi type. Create associations around the world, mine will be the spanish subsidy with pleasure.
    The notice of sacking served by the Canadian company ought to be fought with best lawyers funded by the World Hindu Organization. . The destruction of Nalanda Univ to be invoiced to the destructor Baktiar Ali Khilji or his country to the last cent. plus interest.

    • No “madrashi type”? What is a “madrashi type”? South Indian? Dark skinned? Do tell.
      You may have a problem recruiting for your W-H-O. Southies are like 90% of the people I see abroad.

  16. The history is full of Islamic hatred towards no-islamic practises. KSA ,the land of OIC does not allow entry of religious books o symbols in KSA . The Cordoba Cathedral was converted into a mosque, the same with Ram Temple in Ayoddha. Destruction of Nalanda University was undertaken by Muslims.

  17. Muslims are lucky that when some sporadic incidents happen against them, they have an ‘international community’ to speak for them. For millennia Hindus have been battered, abused, pushed around, killed, maimed…with nobody to support them. Just google up ‘Massacres in India’ and check-out Wikipedia, you will know what I mean.
    That said, it is mischievous to say that in India Muslims are hated. In such a large country, some unfortunate incidents happen. These incidents are of several kinds — personal enmity; intra-religion, caste-driven hatred; inter-religion hatred, crime, political hatred etc etc. Just to pick a few incidents of Muslims being attacked (which certainly deserves to be condemned), and give an impression to the international community that this is the norm in the country, is certainly mischievous, decidedly anti-national.

    • That’s because there was no “international community” back then.
      In case you haven’t noticed, we don’t live in past. The world is now global and everyone is concerned because hatred spread quickly now.
      What happened in Canada would have happened to anyone making such remark against any religion because they don’t tolerate hate speech against any minority. We currently do.

  18. Saif ullah neither you fought against mughal nor you paid jaziya and became khan thanks to your cowardice. Doors of ghar wapsi open.

    • Basis my study no one can counter sanghis bcoz these guys are part of strong BJP IT Cell, they get paid for it. Their job is to promote Modi, BJP, Hindutva for that they stoop so low, create fake news, distort history, promote hatred. Many anti-Muslims personalities are paid and promoted by this team. Many of those writing comments are there across all channels, some hiding their original identity.

    • They write fact, your sanghi pride pains when facts are written about your religion. Hindu rapping / killing a fellow Hindu OR Hindu rapping / killing a non-Hindu is not matter of concern for you guys, you will only look at did Non- Hindu perpetrate this so that they can encash and get mileage out of it

  19. Another rant from the newest member of ‘ The Print’s appeasement brigade.
    All the ‘evidence’ he cites is anecdotal.
    There is an easy way for this religion to avoid bad press – call a spade a spade; an outlaw is an outlaw whether it is co- religionists or not. You and your ilk serve poor illiterate Indian Muslims by whitewashing the ills if present-day Indian Islam.
    Angrezi medium guys like you write inflammatory articles like thus that result in backlash for the poor unwashed masses of Indian Muslims.
    Regarding remittances from the Gulf:
    No country where >75% of the residents are foreigners can stay secure/prosperous for long. The GCC folks depend on Indian labor to support their economies and lavish lifestyles. They can repatriate Indian workers tomorrow- there will be a blip in the Indian economy short term, and we will recover.
    As for the USCIRF- they are a paper tiger – being blacklisted by them means little. For your edification, China is on the “countries of special concern” list. You see any US sanctions on China?
    BTW see below some ‘pearls of wisdom’ from Tony Perkins the Chair of USCIRF who is a card carrying Islamophobe.
    You are delusional if you think he and his ilk will come to the aid of Muslims – Indian or otherwise.

    “Those who practice Islam in its entirety, it’s not just a religion. It’s an economic system, it’s a judicial system, and it is a military – a military system. And it is – it has Shariah law that you’ve heard about and those things will tear and destroy the fabric of a democracy. So we have to be very clear about our laws and restrain those things that would harm the whole. We are a nation – let me be very clear about this. We are a nation that was founded on Judeo-Christian principles, that’s the foundation of our nation, not Islam, but the Judeo-Christian God.”
    — “Washington Watch” radio show, September 2014
    “What most people either don’t realize or willfully ignore is that only 16 percent of Islam is a religion — the rest is a combination of military, judicial, economic, and political system. Christianity, by comparison, isn’t a judicial or economic code — but a faith. So to suggest that we would be imposing some sort of religious test on Muslims is inaccurate. Sharia is not a religion in the context of the First Amendment.”
    — FRC email, December 2015

  20. I mean there is a difference between free speech and islamophobia , but then again social lynching is the new norm.

  21. So many Hindutva idiots want to blame Coronavirus on Muslims instead of India’s poor testing standards that prevent real testing, Modi’s lazy solutions of ‘clapping’ to solve coronavirus instead of doing something, Hindus meeting regularly and lining up for temples and liquor and passing coronavirus.
    Hindu bigots in Canada are as bad as those in India and the Gulf. Thanks for showing the true hateful nature of Hindus that is giving Indians a bad intolerant name!

  22. Just a centre finger to your views about Hindus.. if someone go against law , we will hate them Tablighi Jamat did a sin and they will get anger of people , don’t dare to call it islamophobia and Canada will soon get a ass pain soon when they chant namaz 5 times a day.

    • muslims can only blame others. and liberals love the word ISLAMOPHOBIA.
      these hajaams wont publish one story of forced conversions going on in PAKISTAN where its not even a crime

      • We all know Pak is not a big challenge to India but China is, but Sanghis keep talking about Pak as they will get mileage out of it and none by talking about china

    • No one is saying contact tracing is wrong, which is not what Ravi Hooda has done. His tweet was obviously hate speech.
      The new law was only making the old law general to all religions, it was not giving any special allowance to bad customs of one religion.
      Either make no religious allowances or give them equally to all.
      Canada is a very decent country.
      India feels like we are going backwards in mindsets even if going forward in GDP. This is not the India I grew up in. Social media made us worse people. We just can’t handle it. It creates hate bubbles and normalizes them. We will burn in our own hatred if this continues.

    • I agree…..this is highly BIASED article. Article conveniently omits what triggered the situation. Though I don’t support polarised societies ….”Thali dono haath we bajthi hai”…the writer expecting everything to be done by Hindus whereas Muslim can continue to repeat their old habits.

      • What triggered it as per you?
        A christian law being extended to non-christians triggered it.
        You realize that the law will also protect temple bells, just as church bells?

  23. India is a Hindu country or so it should be by now, that is based on the fact Pakistan was created out of Hindu land so that Muslims of the Sub Continent can practise their religion without let or hindrance . Now we have a situation where Muslims are breeding at 14 % , a lot faster than Hindus , in a few more years Hindus will become a minority and Mogul history will repeat again. If we don’t look ahead that is exactly what will happen.

    • Agreed. After the TABLIGHI JAMAAT incident and the now out of control pandemic its clear this religion cannot function with common sense.

      • That we understood when bhakts were on street clapping and hitting cooking vessels to chase the virus followed by torch parade. Till this incident most of us used to doubt the Voting Machine. Now it is clear that Indians are dumb and blind bhakts.

  24. The reason given is that Muslim migrants could be a problem for Poland’s homogenous society. Kaczyński reiterated his antipathy toward refugees in an interview with the Gazeta Polska Codziennie newspaper published Monday, warning that Poland “would have to completely change our culture and radically lower the level of safety in our country.” He also said that Poland “would have to use some repression” to prevent “a wave of aggression, especially toward women” on the part of asylum seekers.

  25. Enough is Enough. India is doing well. Why muslims are upset and hate Hindus ? Rain or Shine CAA & NRC will not be taken back.. Kashmir and now POK is taken back & it is Part of India.. If Arabs so desire let them return back Hindus & take entire Muslims from India. We will be too happy. If muslims Give respect to Hindus and earn respect. All is ok. Hope this is understood

    • the only hater is you and fellow hindutvas. we are just exposing you. dont be butthurt bruh. We just need more people to see the real face of hindus in india..and its endgame for hindutva.

  26. Enough is Enough. India is doing well. Why muslims are upset with Hindus ? If Arabs so desires let them return back Hindus & take back entire Muslims from India. Give respect to Hindus and earn respect. Is that understood.

  27. “Islamophobia and hate against Muslims have grown at an unprecedented rate in India without any consequences”… without any consequences???
    Not enough to guess ‘the Print’ is a sold media??
    Whole world knows the facts about islamophobia

  28. The tweet by gentleman wasn’t even Islamophobic or hateful. It was more of a sarcastic comment. Where does he insults or mentions any religion in it?
    Canadians should worry that Islamist lobby has grown so strong that even a sarcastic tweet will make a hard working taxpayer lose his job!

    • It was quite hateful, nothing sarcastic about it.
      It would be like a non-Hindu calling Hindus cow urine drinkers.

  29. Religion does not matter in pandemic times. It NEVER mattered ever except that we humans, Muslims, Christians, Hindus, Jews alike – us all played this showmanship game as part of our human follies/weaknesses. And politicians, hangers-on lapped up over centuries.
    Humans have not evolved at par with the Political Thinkers of this Civilization – Socrates, Plato, Aristotle through Hobbes, J S Mill, Rousseau into Kierkegaard, Marx, Freud, Russell, Sartre and our scientists’ evolution from Newton to Einstein and Quantum Theories/Models that have altered our existential. To these must be added medicinal scientists like Bruce H Lipton (Biology of Beliefs)-which affirm that our millions of body cells are thinking and behaving in alignment with what we consider our brain or mind.
    Pandemic times are rare opportunities for Mullahs, Priests, Pundits and all else to reconcile their differences and be on same page with one another in sharing spirituality with their faithfuls. Like today Canada is being extra sensitive-not because they support the Muslim cause but because they, as in New Zealand, finally have come to believe in fairness or being politically correct. Same with the Muslim jihadists….economic growth can arrive when ALL OF US BELIEVE THERE IS NO FREE LUNCH. And finally, only economics matters as post pandemic we may be induced toward brain implants and cloud management.

  30. How disliking muslim practices become Islamophobia??
    Islam and how it is practiced by Muslims are two different things.
    What Muslims are practicing, particularly of South Asia,is not Islam, it is a crooked form of political Islam in its worst form in
    India.
    Those tweets from Arabs have been proven to be from ISI. Do not try to befool Indians.
    It is shameful for the print to publish this garbage.as it is India, where Muslims are treated better tthan many Islamic countries.

  31. I think you need come out of this religion thing to save mankind. Thousands of rohiganyas are dieing with out food those are also Muslims. Boat load of rohiganyas waiting for Malaysia entry on the sea Malaysia closed the borders and letting them die as I know Malaysia is a Muslim country. Muslim countries doesn’t care about other Muslims.

  32. Why do we hate one religion and not other ? How come millions of Hindus in India share the same hatred. This hatred is on a Mass scale. How difficult is it to put thought in one person’s head, hear something is put in the head of millions of people, how come millions of h Hindus respond in the same way and not other

  33. Sir the real cause of Islamophobia is Muslims living other part of world is under Arab Islamic imperialism and refuse to mingle in local culture and custom.
    Muslim in India refuse to follow even Akbar ‘din e ilahi’ . If you find out that Muslims love and even name his son as Aurangzeb but hate against Modi. Indian Muslim want to follow religious country but want India be secular. It is this hypocrisy that is creating problem everywhere.

  34. Islam religion is good, which has preachings like other religion. Islam as a religion is very pure.
    Problem is in extremism & rigidity of people following Islam… That also it’s community & religious leaders (NOT ISLAM RELIGION) are to be blamed…. It is what these leaders teach the masses follow…. Clearly community & religious leaders use aggressive speeches to maintain their status & followings in society and masses follow what is said in speeches blindly.

    We see & hear many things coming out from these leaders( maulanas etc.) which is differently interpreted than what actual meaning the Islam scriptures have…..
    There are many many misgivings inculcated in Islam followers…. IT IS TIME FOR WORLD ISLAM LEADERS TO INTROSPECT AND MAKE CORRECTIONS DOWN THE LINE IN HIERARCHY OF Whole society…. so that Islam becomes a religion lovable by all religions by willingness and followers of all faiths can live in any place of world peacefully.

  39. I think the whole story is about a sympathiser who has chosen inappropriate time to share the news. Also given the choice to express oneself on the social media it is but natural people will show their likes and dislike. The author has himself expressed his hate towards the person who has expressed himself against a particular community and trying to give few more examples to drive his opinion as world’s opinion. As for me journalism has gone for selling news than the truth. Open social media is the reason for generating tremendous conflicts of opinion, in the bargain we loose our own perspective.

  40. Why so called Islamophobia is in vogue ? No reflection, in this article . India is a secular country which has sacrificed it’s major portion of the land at the time of partition to give birth to an Islamic country Pakistan , as Muslims wanted so, where Hindus and Muslims are being persecuted. In Kashmir where there is Muslim minority Pandits massacred , raped and forced to leave their homeland. In India if the muslims would be in majority or acquire majority in certain areas the apprehension of repeating history of creating islamic land ie Dar ul Islam is not unreasonable. The hardliners in Muslims and their attack on other religions and many times within Muslim communities have reached to the highest level in the history. So before blaming others for Islamophobia , Muslims should also introspect and abdicate and denounce the hardliner Islam which if unchecked may finally destroy our society irreparably.

  41. This is absolutely biased reporting. Its easy to write at some platform just because you have access to write. The whole article itself is full of Hindu phobia.
    INDIA is a huge country where 18-20% are muslims. Where were you when thousands of Kashmiri pandits were killed by Muslims. Just picking up handful of unfortunate events does not prove islamophobia. Stop spreading hate especially when you are a reporter. I find you worst than Sudhir Chaudhry.. Get Well Soon Mr Saif ullah and The Print.

  42. Just one another brainless rant…this is another way of pseudo communal conspiracy…these people are jealous of our PM & hindus & have no better policy to try to degrade them…..they will cry hoarse. But for no avail.

  43. A parochial mindset with islamophobia within the mind of the writer. A hogwash writing. Appears to be paid writing

  44. The Print policy is ” Pick and choose” . What about Jihadism all around world. Recently one Kerala musli man went to Kabul and killed 25 Sikhs in Gurudwara for Kashmiri jihadis !

  45. News take a backseat.
    This article is likely to be commented according to one’s loyalty to a political outfit, be it FOR, AGAINST or INDIFFERENT.
    This holds for all political groups, irrespective of their formal position.
    What’s merit got to do with it.

  46. Muslim countries are LIKE DECTETORS & having a COMMUNIST VAMPANTHY THINKING AND IDEOLOGY THEY BELIEVE SELFISHLY GIVE AND TAKE POLICY BUT NOT IN FRIENDSHIP
    INDIA ( HINDUSTHAN, ONLY PLACE IN AN ENTIRE WORLD WHERE HINDUS CAN STAY

  47. Agreed that there have been few incidents of hatred against Muslims but how immature(or rather cunning) was it to make it generalised for the whole country. As per your logic a single “Jamat” incidence should put the whole community in bad light just like you making all Hindus Muslim haters. Was it truly hatred against Muslim which made Modi abolish triple talaq? This post is clearly sponsored by opposing party. Had it been balanced in its criticism I would hav happily agreed.
    Unfollowing print forever

  48. The seeds of hatred were sworn in 1947 ……from that time all of us have been taught to hate Muslim’s and vice versa…….. Muslim population has increased but not the literacy rate….. This isz addition to the woes to take care of their daily needs……… On the name of religion they are misguided into wrong doings…… Rather they are brainwashed…….. Petrol is further added by our very good
    Politicians …..i do not refer a single party…….. But they feel that a member of a partial religion is their property………… India was divided into Hindu and Muslim’s only…….. But down the line they were further divided our our own people in subcastes……………..kids are being taught to hate right from the childhood….. Hope one day things will change for the betterment…….one day all. Will be referred to as INDIANS

  49. Nice report. Appreciate the true journalism!! Keep up the work- Print .
    Ignore the hate comments and be true to your work. Great work

  50. Looks like print writers have modi phobia. Just visit any western right wing site they spill hate on Muslims 24×7 Visit Breitbart or fox news.

  51. Much needed and very important and needy steps to stop this type of communal hatred by Hindus particularly , they don’t know anything , but only to hate Muslims as there God have given these noble features of hating any particular caste like muslim, there God knows only to hate , so what will there followers do, if God is like that , then why to blame blind followers, I recommendtoterminate and remove each and every hindu from everywhere from all countries of this universe, then when they will beg , they will come to know reality

  52. People should love people, people should help people irrespective casts,creed and religion s, our identity lies in our humanity,there is no room for hatred in Hinduism.

  53. People in India will also start avoiding Print if it doesn’t mends its way and continues Hindu Bashing.
    Please do reporting of the facts with some sense of responsibility .
    Secondly writing a simple one liner “views are personal” doesn’t free you from the charge of Hinduphobia .
    Stop supporting ultra left groups

  54. Utter nonsense passes in the name of “independent” journalism these days! If shekhar gupta hopes to retain a shred of neutrality amongst media houses, he ought to nip the problem in the bud and kick this author out.

    This Saif Ullah Khan with not a face nor a single other article to lay claim to starts off his first article with blatant India bashing. Is he an ISI crony supported by the red ultras? In more than one para, he repeatedly insinuates in no uncertain terms that Indians, a majority of them at least, are Muslim haters. How did he arrive at this statement? It’s just a personal view perpetrated by a frustrated, angry, vitriolic, blind, failed excuse for a journalist and his misuse of free speech to mar an entire community’s conscience is disgusting. He links one isolated incident to comments by Arab nations(who as we all know, have a stellar track record in human rights), and extrapolates that to malign an entire community of Hindus. If all Muslims are not terrorists, Mr. Saif Ullah or whatever the hell your name is, then even a baby with half a functioning brain (obviously more gray matter than you possess at this point), will laugh gleefully at the sheer irony and outright bigotry and bias in your so called journalistic piece which claims that a majority of Hindus hate Muslims.

    Such frustrated essays must be relegated to editorial columns in the Dawn or online message boards of terrorist sympathizers.

    I refuse to believe such overly biased and bigoted articles by two bit journalists as facts and as responsible citizens, we all must stem the spread of this hate longer. This article deserves to be in the trash can of the internet and the print cannot shirk responsibility by saying that the views expressed are personal. Utterly disappointed by their lack of oversight, terrible and outright dangerous piece which totally misrepresents the reality and only makes convenient assumptions.

    • An action of Muslim individual or group is considered as an action of all Muslims. If we go by you terms BJP gave seat and elected a Terrorist to the parliament, means the people who gave seat, voted the person to power and thier supporters should be called Terrorist

  55. Every word of that Tweet is true , islamists don’t like to be shown the mirror ,that’s the only issue and of course there’s cabal of religious forces which funds politicians of most colors to set their narrative…India is the only Nation in the world which has withstood the onslaught of barbarians for over 1300 years ,yet is able to retain it’s core native values ,that’s the only problem with jihadis ..well in some near future they’ll have to find another planet to spread their so called “religion of peace”

  56. Totally a baseless disgusting news.
    Police in India is scared to enter muslim area!!!!
    Do you know that?
    Maximum lawlessness is in muslim area!!!!
    Who is threatened Muslim or others than?
    Situation is just opposite
    Hypocritic Double standard media

    • Sandeep, good joke! Police scarred to enter Muslim area. May be true that’s the reason you all sent RSS militia to attack and burn house in Delhi!.

  57. Excellent article showing the truth, which is ignored by godi media. The history of Hitler and fascism shall not be repeated.

  58. Canada post 1984 allowed the vitriolic Sikh to mount anti-India campaign which had to be brought under control when the Kaniskha was blown to smithereens. Although Khalistani’s and anti-India campaign is still kicking, it is muted as consequences of supporting foreign terror networks cost them more. With need for skilled migrants, Pakis and Sikhs not fill the space for them. They get menial work done by contracted hispanic workers to sustain parts of their economy, they are technically infirm, their universities are sick and on verge of closure and all that they are left with is a huge land, arable for 4-months and rest? Now the Hinduphobia that is so strongly expressed and a sudden peaking of it through definitive action by Government of India is the bone of the contention. I have worked in many parts of the world including England (who think that Kashmir should rightly belong to Pakistan), Canada (where Pakistanis need Indians to work s they will not sustain themselves – look at Siemens Canada) and Middle East (entirely built by Indian non-Muslim labour in the majority). With the mass exodus of Indian labour, it is doubtful if the stadiums for World Cup soccer will ever beg ready. Abu Dhabi’s oil wells will have to wait. Western expatriates will demand $100 per hour, Pakistani and Bangladeshi Engineers are no trained to undertake work (of course Hinduphobic chatter), Africans can hardly pick up work due to lack of training. I can go on. But the writer of the article must note that the generation of Indians (note Indians) born after 1947 with an average age of 30-years, trained to be tolerant towards one and all, will not take it lying down. They expect regardless of affiliation to faith (so as to include the faithless and polemical communists) to follow the law, don’t misbehave, join to build a nation not religious edifices. That is India and its strength. HOWDY Modi at Houston was the first time that at a world platform the PM has reconfirmed his duty to protect the constitution of India. Slowly but steadily. the world will either learn to behave and supporters of Jinnah will be identified and penalised for misbehaviour. That all are watching the TV debates (and I don’t listen to either side) is a great thing. It is a warning for all that don’t repeat the mistakes of the 12th century India. Incidentally, I am not a Indian citizen but equally concerned with the rising Hinduphobia.

  59. So in continuation of spreading hatred and spewing venom against BJP print has now crossed all borders to defame India our Mother land time has come to teach a good lesson to these Traitors

  60. some one made a comment on terrorism, pray tell me who were the Tamil tigers and their use of suicide bombings, would it be pertinent to suggest that their sole motive was based on Hinduism. Rather the attacks against Muslims by not just the hindutva mob but a large section of Indian hindus has shown an inferiority complex, unfortunately this will lead to a situation akin to 1939. in reference to Muslim being terrorist and how they took over many parts of the world, many a commentators are blinkered in their look on history, many bakhts look up to white Europe just as the sale of whitening creams is at an all time high, again an inferiority complex, wanting to look like the ‘master race’.
    world war 1 and 2 resulted in nearly a hundred million deaths, now this wasn’t started by Muslims or Hindus yet it resulted many Muslims and Hindus dying.
    from a historical point of view, the major genocides committed were by Mongolians, Hindus against Buddhists and Europe. Europeans annihilated over a hundred million in the Americas, with millions enslaved and murdered in Africa, in Australia the Aborignes were nearly wiped out. In India millions died because of British colonialism, yet I don’t see any bakht mentioning this, because it doesn’t fit the narrative of the inferiority mindset.

  61. Modi bhakts may pretend here the news or the headline is biased, but the table is turning. This is a globalised world, as Muslims have to live and work in India and Hindus need to go and work in Muslim countries, and send money home. Learn to live and let live, learn to respect not hate people of different faiths……

  62. I shall be very grateful 🙏 to Government of Canada,if it can grant asylum to some of these targeted peace loving gentlemen. In few years it shall feel pains we are going through.

  63. Well friends let me inform this to all the readers that I have been working with a national media house and know most of the people working for The Print.

    By now you all must have understood by looking at the type of contents of The Print that even a school kid can write a better story then them. And yes you all are correct that most of the so called “journalist” from The Print are those who were rejected from all the reputed news agencies and rational media houses because they were not qualified or intelligent enough to become a journalist at all ( Some even don’t have genuine academic certificates ). So they formed their own news agency called The Print ( BIRDS OF A FEATHER , FLOCKED TOGETHER ) . And they were financed by some Anti Nationals and opposition parties to be used as their mouthpiece. The motto of this news house is to write negative things against the government and certain communities because if they don’t do so then they will die out of business , reason being no one reads to their b*** s*** news .

    So friends just ignore what ever they write ( NEVER ARGUE WITH FOOLS BECAUSE FIRST , THEY WILL BRING YOU DOWN TO THEIR LEVELS , AND SECOND THEY WILL BEAT YOU WITH THEIR EXPERIENCE ) . They are any ways going to become beggers in time to come as I know they are struggling to keep up with everyday expenses.

    • Hindu rapping / killing a fellow Hindu OR Hindu rapping / killing a non-Hindu is not matter of concern for you guys, you will only look at did Non- Hindu perpetrate this so that they can encash and get mileage out of it. We all know Pak is not a big challenge to India but China is, but Sanghis keep talking about Pak as they will get mileage out of it and none by talking about china

  64. Well friends let me inform this to all the readers that I have been working with a national media house and know most of the people working for The Print.

  65. The print, quint,the wire,the scroll,ndtv r media houses funded by anti india forces like pakistan & china.their articles like praising anti india journalists winning Pulitzer prize shows their inclination.

  66. Before deciding on any Phobia, it will do well for this publication and its writers to answer one question – why is it that 1slamic countries clearly have a state religion which is bandied about and all others are supposed to be secular and practice their religion inside a closet

    • State religion is never an issue!. fake, doctored messages targeting one community is the issue. A fight between two religious individuals are not an issue, but the protectors of the law take one side becoz the person belong to his religion is the matter. In delhi apprx. 55 peoples were killed of this 2 are hindus and rest are muslims. For kiiling 2 hindus more than 1000 cases are filed and people arrested even charged with UPA. Not even a single arrest for killings of Muslims even though there are video evidence!

  67. Despite anti Hindu mind set Muslims are living peacefully in India due to generous culture of Hindus.
    PRINT you are as good as ass shit to practise feud journalism

  68. Muslims have the God given right to abuse everyone, and hate everyone who does not believe in their ideologies. But others have no such rights.

    • As abuse in personal nature is the norm of any society. This happens during fights or any such issues. But you abuse a religion as a whole bcoz you hate them is the issue.

  69. The below statement

    “Indian social media, especially since the run-up to the 2014 Lok Sabha election, has seen a steady rise in hate targeted at Muslims, blaming them for almost every evil besetting the country.”

    may have come from momentary anxiety which is understandable.

    But it is not a good quality for a journalist to let emotions spill into their reporting. The author has done that precisely here. Blaming the entire hindu community will not help. This kind of reporting doesn’t give a moment for the reader to read the article completely and understand the challenges faced by a community. It creates more enimity. The so called bigots will never care to read the article completely. It gives more strength to general public to not believe such news. ( because they believe, the news media always blame hindus for all the wrongdoing). This article precisely represents the Rana Ayyub style of journalism. It is filled with emotions and blaming the entire community for wrongdoings. It creates more enemity. A few people belonging to a community blaming another community, doesn’t mean justics will be achieved with the other community doing the same.

    I firmly believe the author will take this fact into account and do not drag entire communities into this fiasco. These articles might strenghten the audience base of the author, but it never reaches the overall public.

    The Rana ayyub kind of journalism creates more rift, enimity and division. She blames entire hindu community for the problems. The author should take a note of this. The articles should decrease enimity, bring people together and give them a chance to think for themselves. It shouldn’t create more rift and hatred

    Thanks. Feedback is appreciated.

    • An action of Muslim individual or group is considered as an action of all Muslims. Have you seen Muslims spreading edited fake Videos to target Hindus!. No to my knowledge.

      The fake messages and videos are spread deliberately don’t say it is momentary anxiety!. There is a purpose to it.

      If we roll back prior to demolition of Babri Masjid, BJP tried hard to come to power with development Mantra but failed. So, the solution they found is religious divide which worked well in Gujarat implemented by Modi & Shah. RSS put Shah in charge along with Advani and they planned the strategy. The time was ripe with telecast of Mahabharat & Ramayana due to which Ram / Ayodhya intoxicated every Hindu mind. They along with VHP organised Ram Janma Bhoomi classes across India, gave fabricated classes to attendees and portrayed Muslims as their no.1 enemy. This worked and BJP came to power which was ample proof for them that to be in power they need to divided Hindus & Muslims

  70. They mocked gau mutra, diwali,holi,dusshera,raksha bandhan,durga, ganesha and it wasn’t hinduphobia.
    When tableeghi jamaat was criticized for defying rule of law it is islamophobia.
    Where is your tolerance and foe. Shame on hypocrite media. You can’t create fake narrative, will be rebutted full throttle.

  71. I do not know the details of the author but I am assuming that he is not an Indian citizen per se. He seems to have conveniently forgotten that the Canadian PM himself has been proven to be racist, hypocritical and is currently embroiled in a scam & quickly losing popularity. These actions permitting Azaan should be taken in this context. Otherwise, such exemptions could have been given long ago.
    The author also needs to remember that Canada is the most popular shelter for Khalistani terrorists and one of the them is very close to the PM and even organised his India visit last year. If Indians were so phobic and had been so paranoid, we would have shot him in this country during the visit. Surprising thing was that the Canadian PM had no idea that he was an Ex-Khalistani terrorist.
    The author probably supports these measures because these are simply a path to accuse everyone of Islamophobia and gradually guilt them through emotional blackmail into providing refuge for the millions of refugees as well as the lakhs of terrorists that Wahabi Islam has created.
    Of course, he fails to mention the fact that the same Gulf countries, while funding Wahabi Islam inspired terrorism, refuse to take in even a single refugee created by such terrorism or any other form of state terrorism.
    The author also fails to mention that many Gulf royalty had made similar comments on social media against Indian expats working in Gulf asking all Indians to get out of their countries because their healthcare facilities are reserved only for themselves.
    The comments by BJP MP TEJASVI SURYA were in retaliation to this. But, bigots like this author conveniently avoid mentioning the context and thus, mislead the readers. Hence, you truly earned the accolade of “PRESSTITUTE”.

  72. Hindus who are minorities in pakistan are raped and forcefully converted and are not being provided rations during covid19 pandemic. Whereas Muslims are increasing their population as compared to HINDU birth rate in INDIA. What about stopping war in pakistan and Afghanistan and Syria and Yemen. What have Hindus got to do with that. The only problem is Hindus want to move ahead in life and some people want to go back 1400 YEARS

  73. Diplomatic capital is melting like an ice cream cone in summer. Some years ago, I saw Ms Aarti Jerath enjoying one in Khan Market.

  74. I’m appalled by the knowledge and wisdom of writer about indian people when he say comment like this will get thousands like in india.
    Shame shame shame

  75. Modi and BJP are a disgrace to India; and this extremism and hatred views have now been rippled across entire India resulting in attacks. SHAME ON THOSE PPL!!

  76. I am afraid this “pandemic” is going to increase. More and more countries in the world are going to discover “Modi’s Hindus”. Now Narendra Modi is truly making India along the “Gujarat Model”. All that development jazz was an eyewash. His own “Gujarat face”, which barred his entry into the USA after 2002 Gujarat riots is again visible to world leaders. His mask of high oratory has slipped in recent years. The world had all along known the Hindus as intelligent, friendly, and productive workers. Now they are discovering the face of UGLY HINDU. Modi-Bhakts never tire of abusing the liberals, but it was the liberals who made Hindu a likeable word internationally. If serving India and building india’s good image abroad was patriotism, then we will have to define who are the new traitors in Modi’s New India.

  77. I think in Canada they still didn’t understand the Jihadi culture propogated in the name of Islam. It is only matter of time. At this point islamic fundamentalists are trying to align with left to push the islamic agenda but they will soon be exposed.

  78. BJP leadership taken birth on railway platform, the first words newborn heard; hate rate Hindu Muslim Pakistan Pakistan, under shadow of lathes / dandas, grown in RSS Nursery.
    Modi has incited hatred it can no longer stop, Spreading fear & Hindu Muslim is as per RSS ideology and BJP existence / survival.

  79. The faultlines were pre existing.

    The fact is Muslims in India thinks themselves as descendants of Arabs, Turks afghans, mongols and glorify the tormentors, plunderers, rapist, barbaric.

    Corona jihad is an example of open defiance of civil sense, laws and rules. On top of that knowingly spreading the corona, beating healthcare workers, murdering police jonly embellishes the jihadi, wahabi and radicalized mindset.

    CAA proved Muslims are communal when they protested against giving citizenship to persecuted non Muslims but kept silent when rohingyas were given citizenship of J&K.

    I can go on and on with facts and your counter would be playing a victim and some fancy insaniyat hyperbole.

  80. While everyone has a right to express, I believe that the Headline is very misleading as if picked up from Dawn newspaper. The Print should be judicious about how it wants to project an event…

  81. Islamophobia is a pretext for guys wanting to establish their writ, because these guys threaten the fabric of hindu society by claiming that they are supreme they keep shouting day in and day out in hundreds and thousands of speakers cacophonous outbursts, and utter disregard for other religions, humans old and young and the diseased even at odd hours like 4 AM with callousness about decibels. Not a single apology has come from the super spreaders and the country is suffering today and instead they have ruthlessly attacked the corona warriors be it in delhi, meerut, indore, bengaluru etc,. The author should introspect the reason and not pick few incidents and generalizing. The majority community are infact being threatened. If you guys keep raising this bogey of Islamophobia and blackmail our country that we will loose on the gulf money so be it. Most of the gulf money has never actually benefitted the nation. If we don’t buy oil from them then they’ll realise. Work from, home, AI, shale oil, solar and electric vehicles are the future and not gulf crude. Next 30 years gulf countries will need us and not vice versa. India has survived for thousands of years and this gulf money started in 70s and may end in 2025s.

    • Journalist should not become the story. Please do research before publishing, all have freedom of speech and expression that doesn’t mean u speak whatever you want. You mentioned Muslims were violently attached don’t you see super spreaders attacked corona warriors who were actually helping them. Broaden your vision brother. India supplied hydroxy chloroquine to many Islam countries in terms of humanitarian aid is this act you call ISLAMOPHOBIA.

    • Trump visited India on 24th Feb, lakhs filled the stadium on that day, how many of them are tested for Corona Virus so far? If they are not tested why? What if Corona had spread from this event, would you call it Hindu Jihad? Why Hindu Nathuram Godse is not a terrorist for killing Mahatmma Gandhi and Sikhs bodyguard were called terrorist for killing Indira Gandhi? Why Holla Mohalla festival was allowed between 10th to 12th March, attended by thousands of Sikhs? Many of them have turned positive later on, why the sikhs are not traced, isolated and criticised in public like Tabalghi? This even took place in Delhi near a police station, why police did not stop it? After the colossal failure the central government to plan the testing and lockdown in advance, all they want is to put the blame on someone else it can be muslim, china or anything.

  82. No surprise! ‘The Print’ has once again proved its inclination towards a particular community.
    Toadyism under the name of so called journalism!

  83. One day Canada will repent on its decision of giving muslims a free hand.
    And you, the editor…it seems you are being paid by the congress for writing against the BJP government.
    What you term as ISLAMOPHOBIA is an act of precaution…you can do some research about the condition of all European countries where Muslim population has increased as considerable strength.

    • Not only canada ….. many nations are in the pipeline …. france, sweden, germany n at the top of the list is holland. In fact in another 10-15 yrs the entire demography in holland is going to alter forever n it will face the same fate as lebanon. The trudeau admn is digging deep grave for the entire country. And these assholes frm print want us to influence us with thse nonsense .. . These ppl shud b brutally murdered publicly in streets for all their misdeeds. Our society dusnt need these muslims.

    • It’s already bad that you do it in your country
      But the sheer caucasity that you do it in Muslim countries
      Indont know if you get it, but it every country is as horrible as you

  84. Only one question. Why are all terrorists Muslims ? There is something wrong with them, which makes them think that world is not fit and they are here to correct.
    In every country from US, France, UK, India, Myanmar every act of terrorism is performed by a Muslim. History has proved it.
    Canada has to learn it’s lesson, so in time it’s gonna realize that it’s the big mistake / blunder which has been done.
    Corona Jihad or not, but it was most irresponsible act which exposed the stupidity of the tablighi’s and concern for none and definitely, it’s going to create an impression on the world that’s these Muslims are bad,.
    So keeping on playing victim card again and again is of no use, save for better.

    • There are also Hindu extremists. (Babri demolition/Gujarat Riots/Delhi riots/cow lynchings etc;). There is also christian and Budhist terrorism(Christchurch/colonialism/Rohingyan genocide/ Tamil genocide in Sri Lanka).
      Your argument is baseless and another classic example of islamophobia.

    • Because of the media had posed Muslims are terrible but reality is Muslims are very peaceful people!! But RSS is very extremist as per confirmed by UN .

  85. The report is totally biased in favour of Muslim fundamental thoughts and against hindutva thought and practise, that if any distasteful opinion or action is seen apparently against Muslim (so called religious rights) from the other side, it would stand proved to be due to one or other provocative acts from the Muslim practisioners calling for such reactions. In truth the so called Islamaphobics are reactions to uncalled for actions and omissions from religiously fundamental muslims. I wonder that the so called accusers do not appreciate that any event should be read or considered in the backdrop of preceding events from the other side. To quot, many so called human right mongers eloquenting on communal carnage in Ahmedabad do suppress the cause and event that ignited the same to be the torching of the Samghuda express bogies carrying Hindu Sadhus and the cold blooded killings etc. These gentlemen do not see the world (recent) history that all the civilizations like: Egyptian, Mesapetomian, Roman etc were all erased down to earth by the so called right to practise religion by Muslim thoughts. Even the christian countries like Syria, Libia etc. are ceding to the vigourous and violent so called right to practise religion by the Muslim thoughts. The Hindutwa culture is the last other civilisation on earth still surviving. That too is under constant continuing threat from religious fundamentlists, which is spread throughout the country generally and concentrated at J & K. The Delhi Tabligi congregation has contributed to one third of the total cases of Covid in India. The same when is found to be due to senseless religious thoughts, what is wrong in saying the truth out so that such stupidities are not repeated again. Is it not more senseless to label it Islamophobia. Try to be objective and reasonable PRINT!

  86. Canada is surely the next jihad centre …we just need to wait and see how will all this backfire …they have already given special rights to muslims to pray in schools and colleges

  87. What about the conditions of uighar muslims in china? why the whole arabic world is silent about it?in fact the leader of muslim world so called pakistan is quiet on this issue?why? Only because of china pak economy is standing.why u forget to tell the condition of hindus and sikhs in pak.everyday 1 minority women is kidnapped and forcibly converted to islam . Is this right,man.

    • Good observation.!
      And if the international community is so observant of human rights then where are similar statements from Gulf countries regarding the plight of minorities in Pak, BD..etc..???
      As for CN what happened to secularism?
      In the name of “multiculturalism”, CN govt. is allowing all faiths to do their own things instead of making faith a personal practice.

  88. SAIF you should look into a mirror and see how and what Muslim’s do in India.Muslim’s know not to go to to Mosques but they do not listen, large group of Talighi’s bring Corona to India and are still hiding.Muslims have the same blood as Hindus but think you are something special?Why?If you think you are mistreated then move to Pakistan or Islamic countries in the Middle East where we know you are not wanted.You think you are descendants of Arabs but not and Arabs don’t want you.Canada has No clout and let them cry foul and does not carry any weight.

  89. What is wrong in it this is true muslims are not allowing non muslims to live in islamic country so we need to treat them same in India

  90. Nice attempt at whitewashing.
    You mention in your article “Tablighi Jamaat congregation in Delhi” but you failed to mention that these folk were in violation of Indian laws, spat on doctors & sexually assaulted nurses and other female medical staff and generally misbehaved in quarantine – but that should obviously be excused (victim card, minority etc etc).
    What about the “peaceful anti-CAA protesters” who were rioting in New Delhi – but that should obviously be excused (victim card, minority etc etc).
    And finally, what about Hindu hating overseas Arabs & Pakistanis who spew anti-Hindu venom on public forums & social media? Their freedom of expression should not be challenged – but no Hindu can speak his mind.

    Nice try buddy.

    • Dear BJPig… Why don’t you comment with your real name? If you’re a chuslim you should be sad about the targeted murders of your brethren.

    • couldn’t agree more
      The guy who wrote this piece is terrible.Has no sense of rationality
      In an attempt to criticise the wrong doings of certain Hindus(which is correct by the way),this dumbtard writer just says Tablighi Jamat and no single criticism on their stupid behavior and irresponsibility.

      Coming to Camel Kings..Imean Arabs.They are hypocrite mf.So much about Muslims in India,But no word about Uighurs.
      Anyways Oil price has crashed.They are on their knees now.They cant afford to loose India.

    • Hello Sanghi, hiding with Muslim name. There are many videos from urinating in utensils, spitting in pani puri, dipping vegetable in sewage water by Hindus cart vendors, but we never promoted such videos as Hindu culture primarily we never consider Sanghis as Hindus. Yogi in an open ground mentioned that “if need be we will dig their grave yard and rape Muslims”. Such is the culture of Sanghis. They follow the footstep of Savarkar who taught; Means is not important but the goal is important (Read creating Hindu Rashtra) so they stoop to any level to achieve this.

      Hindu rapping / killing a fellow Hindu OR Hindu rapping / killing a non-Hindu is not matter of concern for you guys, you will only look at did Non- Hindu perpetrate this so that they can encash and get mileage out of it.

  91. Very biased news by your media. Appears to be running agenda against India. Stop all this nonsense reporting

    • Only one country in world where we can worship and follow our living practices freely,but everyone is targeting us,it’s time to get united for truth & peace,because as u become 2nd majority in country u will definitely be kicked off as did in 1990 by some liberals..
