Majority of Muslims in India are descendants of Hindus, a BJP member claimed in the Lok Sabha on Monday while asking both the communities to respect each other’s sentiment. Participating in a debate on lynchings, Hukumdev Narayan Yadav slammed the opposition for targeting the central government over incidents of lynchings, saying Prime Minister Narendra Modi has repeatedly come out strongly against such acts.

He raised the issue of killing of RSS workers in Kerala, which is ruled by the Left Front government. Yadav asserted that the responsibility of containing mob violence is that of the state governments. He said “certain demons” have put on “holy garb” to defame the government, likening it to an episode in the Ramayana.

“Some people are indulging in terror (atankvadi) activities to defame the government,” the BJP member said and slammed the Congress for questioning the intention of the Modi government. Yadav, the MP from Madhubani in Bihar, said a fight between two ideologies has been going on for several decades and asserted those who follow the path of “economic development and nationalism” will come out victorious.

During his speech, he extensively quoted Deen Dayal Upadhyaya and said the BJP ideologue had stated that “Muslims in India are descendants of Hindus.”

He said every Muslim must respect Hindu sentiment and at the same time, Hindus must respect the Muslims. The MP was also severely critical of the policies of Congress and said “I will prefer to die than bowing before the Congress…Some politicians sit with the Congress and have biryani and then indulge in artificial fight outside.” Yadav said he will prefer to die than abadonning the ideology he is fighting for.

Talking about nationalism, Yadav said freedom fighters Maulana Abul Kalam Azad and Khan Abdul Gaffar Khan had sungthe poem ‘Vande Mataram’ but there is an environment now in which singing it is considered a crime. He also cited a recent case in which a political leader had sought support from the Naxals. “There cannot be bigger lynching than this,” the BJP member said.

Yadav also alleged that Deen Dayal Upadhyaya and Ram Manohar Lohia were killed in late 1960s as both were planning to join hands. The BJP MP drew the attention of the House towards the 1984 anti-Sikh riots and raised the issue of killing of RSS workers in Kerala.

          Yadav is quoting Khan Ghaffar Khan, who is fondly called Frontier Gandhi. A towering personality and to last minute he fought valiantly for prevention of separation of Indian sub continent. The greatest Muslim personality ever.

            People of the Sub-Continent belong to the same stock. Look at the HINDU Surnames of Muslims of Sthan, and in many parts of India - First Sthan, Bajwa (Gen. Qamar Javed Bajwa is the present Chief of the Sthani Army), Kayani, Sheriff, Cheema, Ranjha, Patel, Bhatt, Pandit, Rao, Basith (may be), Choudhry, Barney, Mundray, and the List is very LONG.... There are Hindus and Sikhs who converted to Islam as late as 1950s, to keep their LANDS in Sthan, with Muslim Mobs killing them, especially, in Punjab. In INDIA the Anti-Hindu Propaganda has been intensified by our 'esteemed' Media Hindus, who wanted the Dynasty to be elected on the platform of "Fear induced Muslim Votes" cast in their favour. Conversion Monies poured into India, BILLIONS OF DOLLARS, the Nehruvites turned a blind eye. Since Rajiv-Sonia rule began, Roman Catholicism became the unofficially favoured religion of India. The largely POOR, UNEDUCATED and CONFUSED mass of Hindus were converted easily.

              Distortion of History by Saffron.Muslims like Jains, Buddhist,Christians, Sikhs all broke away from Hinduism from long period of time to escape Caste and social inequality, suppression, insults and degradation of their Human en y under Hinduism.This was not because Hinduism was wrong, they revolted because the Swarnas united to crush the Shudras who are in Majority by misusing religious texts, political and Money power.Imagine a Creation not even allowed to Hear words of Vedas or just to glimpse man made God of Wood and Stones. Great Example in recent years is of Dr.Ambedkar.

                  Swamy, There are 'Castes' and 'Shirks' (82) within Indian Islam, leaving aside Sunni - with FIVE different 'Schools' like Hanafi, Hanbali, Ithna-Hazaari and so on - Shia - with Bora, Khoja, Surti, Ismaili and so on - Sufi, Ahmadiya and so on... Your idea tht they converted because of caste is wrong. See my post above, most converted for MONEY AND POSITION in the Moghul Durbar. They All KEPT THEIR CASTE NAMES when they were Hindus. Buddhists also have Caste. Read Louis Dumon, "Homo Hierarchicus" to understand Caste. DALITS have many Sub-castes within them. You need to read well and for long to know FACTS.

                Can't see anything wrong in what Hukumdev Narayan Yadav has said. Large number of Muslims also say that their ancestors were Hindus. I think, this negative tone of newspaper is to blame BJP, even, when BJP MPs are saying right thing.

                  Ask any Muslim across India, If learned He will respond the same, Muslims had Hindu Ancestry. Muslims converted from Hinduism due to religious and Social inequality same what BabaSaheb Ambedkar and His followers did in 1956, Diksha.It is the RSS/VHP who are sowing the seeds of hatred and division since ages, they are the one who foolishly wants Indian to beleive that Today's Muslims are responsible for Atrocities of Mughal Kings of thousand year back. Only Unity can bring Peace and Peace usher progress.

                    The Jews and Arabs are cousins that is Semites children of Abraham (Ibrahim), Islam is a Semitic religion and most Muslims of India are racially Aryans (as they were Hindus) who follow a non-Aryan Semitic religion Islam. Thus indeed most Muslims and Hindus are brothers. Few Muslims are Semites (Arab background) in the Indian subcontinent but some Muslims to gain mileage pretend to be Arabs and are a laughing stock in the Arab world. India must follow Mahatma Gandhi and all unite for the future of mother India.
