My factual reply to a dubious question was removed by Quora

The question on Quora was:

Why has the hatred between Hindus and Muslims increased in the past four to five years?

My reply, which was removed after 2 months:

The questioner makes a claim which cannot be substantiated. If ‘communal crimes’ had increased, one might conclude that hatred also has increased. But actually, the ‘’communal crimes’ have decreased over the last 5 years in India.

However, the questioner cannot be faulted, because Indian and international mainstream media clearly give the impression as if lynching of Muslims has greatly increased, in spite of not being true. There may be even more lynching and rapes of Hindus by Muslims. Yet media and so-called celebrities try their best to portray Hindus as the villains.

Rather surprisingly (as it is a new phenomenon), this has been strongly contested by other media channels and another set of celebrities recently, as it was too obvious that this portrayal was very unfair as only crimes by Hindus with Muslims as victims were highlighted and the numerous crimes committed by Muslims were fully ignored.

But it is indeed possible that if not hatred, but tension has increased in recent times – not only between Hindus and Muslim, but also between Buddhists and Muslims for example in Sri Lanka or Myanmar or between Christians and Muslims for example in Europe and Middle East or even between Chinese communists and Muslims in Xinjiang. The reason is that more non-Muslims have become aware of the ultimate goal of Islam, which is to make the whole world Muslim. Christians have a similar goal, but at present, Muslims are more visible because of numerous terror attacks, other crimes like gang rapes and the terrible brutality of ISIS. Incredibly, this happened according to a plan, which a Jordanian journalist detailed already almost 20 years ago regarding the future of terrorism.

The journalist Fouad Hussein had spent time in prison with al-Zarqawi, and had also contact with many of the Al Quaida network’s leaders. Based on correspondence with these sources, he has brought out a book about Al Quaida’s master plan and an abstract was published in 2005 in Spiegel online. (One can google it under future of terrorism, Spiegel online, 2005).

It is simply amazing how accurately the plan of 7 phases was followed. The quotes in inverted commas are from the Spiegel article:

For example “between 2010 and 2013, Hussein writes that al-Qaida will aim to bring about the collapse of the hated Arabic governments.” (4th phase).

Between 2013 and 2016 “will be the point at which an Islamic state, or caliphate, can be declared”. (5th phase).

In the 6th phase “Hussein believes that from 2016 onwards there will be a period of “total confrontation.” As soon as the caliphate has been declared the “Islamic army” will instigate the “fight between the believers and the non-believers” which has so often been predicted by Osama bin Laden.”

This was written in 2005 in the article by Spiegel, a major German magazine.

Now has hatred between Hindus and Muslims increased?

I just heard Prime Minister Modi talk on the occasion of the victory in the Kargil war against Pakistan 20 years ago. He mentioned that peace and humanity are ingrained in the mind-set of Indians. This is true. There is probably no other people who is so tolerant as Indians or more specifically Hindus. It is visible not only in India, but all over the world, where Hindus in all likelihood are the most ideal immigrant class who are least prone to crimes and contribute maximum to the welfare of their adopted countries.

In contrast, the mind-set of Muslims has to include ridding the world of kafirs. If a Muslim wants to be a good Muslim, he cannot take friends from among non-believers. This severely hinders him to be a good human being. In fact, he is encouraged to feel hatred, as he should see kafirs as “the worst of all creatures” (Q 98.6).

So yes, since some Muslims obviously got instigated all over the world to unleash “total confrontation”, the hatred from their side and the wariness of the other side probably increased.

If Muslims don’t realise that the Supreme Being is the creator of all humans and that all are basically one according to ancient Indian philosophy, which is supported by modern science, a harmonious living together is not possible.

PS: I had appealed the decision to remove my reply, had asked Quora under which policy they have collapsed it in September and also tweeted the issue to Quora. Yesterday, on 10.October, I found a message from Quora that they have restored my reply. That was a nice surprise, because most of my earlier replies that had been removed, were never restored.

    Superbly put, very accurate description

  3. Thank you Maam. So True. Came to know many new things as to what that agenda for 20 years is.

    Islam, as late Historian Sita Ram Goel has stated “Islam has been, and remains till today, not much more than a system of glorified terrorism in spite of all its tom-tom about Allãh and the Book from high heaven. The only way it has ever known,
    either of breaking resistance to its onward march or of imposing its own cock-and-bull stories on a conquered people, has been that of brute force.”

    Fabulous as always. What could be counter to an islamic caliphate is a question world leaders have to work out. Before we fight the aliens we have to learn to survive as human beings

    It is an eye opener for every one on this planet.

  6. Anybody supports Hindus or Hinduism would be treated this way in Quora, not a surprise to me and most of the people knew it. In fact one of my answers was recently deleted in spite of my appeal that it was not offending anybody. I was in fact appriciating and alerting the author (happen to be a Pakistani) who had written facts of history favouring India. I only wrote, “Be careful bro, you may be targetted with ‘fatwa’ for supporting India’. You tell me Maria ji, what was wrong in this sentence? That’s how Quora functions!

  7. So true, we know who we are as Indians (most of us), the question is how do we get the rest of the world to understand that when the media, as you stated, constantly informs them of the opposite?

    Wherever we are as immigrants there are nothing positive from anyone else about us even though we integrate with other communities in peace and harmony.

    Do these people look for stuff like this:
    “India is the cradle of the human race, the birthplace; human speech, the mother of history, grandmother of legend, and great grandmother of tradition. Our most valuable and most instructive materials in the history of man are treasured up in India only.” Mark Twain

    “We owe a lot to Indians, who taught us how to count, without which no worthwhile scientific discovery could have been made.” Albert Einstein

    One of the originators of the Physical Evolution Theory, Dr. A. R. Wallace was the first to strike down the Social Evolution Theory. He rightly affirmed that: “The Veda admittedly the oldest book in the library of mankind contains the essential teachings of the most advanced religious thinkers and is a vast system of religious teachings which are pure and lofty.”

  8. Unfortunately most of the media is bought by Middle East owners and running a systematic brainwashing… which general public fall for

  9. […] article was published on author’s blog on October 7, 2019 and has been reproduced here with minor change- reference to ‘India’ […]

  10. Dear Mam
    It is a part of larger conspiracy against Hindu and India culture in International media.
    we need to fight it out unanimously .
    I wish to write a mail to you, can I get your email?


    NAMASTE,Maria your are a fighter and for Hindu cause there is enormous opposition and we have very poor media support. Rajiv Malhotra a former physisist and business man has established a powerful institution and doing a lot of work and inspired many to join him .
    I am sure you have wealth of ideas to do work what you believe and sky is the limit.

  12. 100% accurate. I have started boycotting the community as a customer.

    We Hindus believe the entire World is one family. Islam wants only Muslim Umma that it the difference between the two. I have read Koran and could not believe how anyone in his right mind call it a Book of peace. I spews hatred againt non-Muslims it calls Kafirs. I suggest every Hindu buys a copy of Koran and read it

    Maria–I salute you for your write ups .May God give you strength to continue your efforts

    1. Thank you

  15. Lack of RIGHT EDUCATION is the main reason of all these issues.

    Maria, you know that when a human life is born that life does not know who his or her father, mother, rationality, so called religions, etc etc is. That life doesn’t even know his or her own name. These are all taught to that life that you are Christian or Muslim or Hindu, etc., this is your father, mother, etc. So the humanity is killed by teaching them all this wrong things, instead of teaching human relations, love, service before Self, TRUTH, morals, ethics, etc etc etc

    If you want to come sometimes to see me we can talk more on this. I understand you are in India. Where ?

  16. That figures,just place an N after quora and youll understand why!
