Sachar Committee Report Uncovered Backwardness of India’s Muslims, Part 2

By Dr Radhasyam Brahmachari

More Muslims are urban than the National Average:

India's population is predominantly rural. In 2001 only 27.8% lived in urban areas, cities and towns of various sizes, showing a low degree of urbanization. Moreover, the tempo of urbanization has been quite low after 1981, with only about two percentage points rise in the share of the urban population over each decade. The Muslim population is also predominantly rural, but the level of

urbanization among them has been higher than the population as a whole. In 1961, while overall only 18.0% of the population lived in urban areas, 27.1% of the Muslim population did so. This substantial gap has persisted, and in 2001, when 35.7% of the Muslim population was urban compared to 27.8% of the overall population.

In many states, Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, and Chhattisgarh, the majority of Muslims live in urban areas. Muslims have generally been relatively more urbanized even in the past. By and large, India's Muslim population is less linked to land than the overall population. This is true even in rural areas. The 2001 census data show that whereas among all religions, 40 percent of rural workers were cultivators, among Muslims this figure was only 30 percent. Agricultural workers (cultivators and agricultural labourers combined) constituted 75 percent of rural workers overall but only 60 percent of Muslim rural workers. Experts believe that a number of historical factors lie behind the higher urbanization among Muslims in India.

As mentioned above, nearly 36 percent of India’s Muslim population lives in urban areas and almost all them are slum dwellers. Due to poor educational standard, they have to satisfied with low-pay jobs and hence unable to afford better accommodation. The other reason is that the Muslims dislike to live with non-Muslim kafirs and hence they are increasingly resorting to live in congested ghettos across the country that lack proper sanitation and other public facilities like fresh water supply, sanitation, electricity, schools, public health facilities, banking facilities, roads, and transport facilities. This is more pronounced in communally sensitive towns and cities. At the same time, living in ghettos seems not to be advantageous for the Community for another reason. It makes them more isolated from the

mainstream population that add to their backwardness.

In India, one can call these Muslim ghettoes as “mini Pakistans”, where they perform every anti-India activities, like burning of Indian National Flag, hoisting Pakistani flag, shouting anti-India and pro-Pakistani slogans, oppressing the non-Muslims residents if there be any and so on. This picture is not confined to India alone. The Western countries in Europe are also experiencing the same thing. So, Mr Geert Wilders, in his essay “Islamization of Europe” writes -

But in all of these cities (in the West), sometimes a few blocks away from your tourist destination, there is another world, a world very few visitors see - and one that does not appear in your tourist guidebook. It is the world of the parallel society created by Moslem mass-migration. All throughout Europe a new reality is rising: entire Moslem neighborhoods where very few indigenous people reside or are even seen. And if they are, they might regret it. This goes for the police as well. It’s the world of head scarves, where women walk around in figureless tents, with baby strollers and a group of children. Their husbands, or slaveholders if you prefer, walk three steps ahead. With mosques on many street corners. The shops have signs you and I cannot read. You will be hard-pressed to find any economic activity.

These are Moslem ghettos controlled by religious fanatics.. These are Moslem neighborhoods, and they are mushrooming in every city across Europe. These are the building-blocks for territorial control of increasingly larger portions of Europe, street by street, neighborhood by neighborhood, city by city…..There are now thousands of mosques throughout Europe. With larger congregations than there are in churches. And in every European city there are plans to build super-mosques that will dwarf every church in the region.

It is needless to say that the Muslim women the worst sufferers of this increasing ghettoisation, as Islamic custom of veiling prevents them to access the above mentioned civic facilities from beyond the confines of their ghettoes. This ghettoisation has multiple other adverse effects like inadequacy of infrastructural facilities, shrinking common spaces and creating an unhealthy environment vulnerable to epidemics of common tropical diseases like diarrhea, cholera, malaria and other water and mosquito borne ailments. There is no doubt that all the above mentioned lack of civic facilities play hindrance to the progress of the community.

Islam has no Human Resource Development Program:

When the first part of the article has been posted in the Islam-Watch on 24th March, many learned readers have come up with their valued comments and it has made me fully convinced that the enlightened and thinking people have started thinking deeply about the role the Islam, a cult of hatred and violence, is playing in the world today. Almost all of them believe that the slavery of Arab religious imperialism, in the name of following Islam, is the root cause for backwardness of the Muslims throughout the globe. Particularly for the Muslims of India, a reader raised the question – “Why they should be poor and backward in spite of ruling over India for 800 years compared to only 200 of the British! These colonial imperialist Muslims looted Hindu money and misused that money for merry-making and thus ruined them!”

He is quite correct. For example, once upon a time, the Muslim invaders from Afghanistan looted immense wealth from the Hindus of India and carried that wealth to their country. In addition to that, they carried hundreds of thousands of Hindu prisoners of war and sold them as slaves in the slave markets of affluent Muslim countries in the Middle East. So the question naturally arises – Why today, Afghanistan is one of the poorest countries in the world? There is no doubt that Islam is the culprit. Why? Because, Islam has no program, like Human resource development. It is man who creates wealth. If you do not educate and train people for creating wealth, how prosperity would come?

Neither the Koran and nor Hadith preach any lesson for turning the Muslims into a community of creative people. Allah never says, in Koran, that, O believers, you lead an honest, moral, ethical and a decent life, be educated by receiving education and raise your moral character. On the contrary, Allah gives them clean chit to commit any crime, every foulest deed and break every law through His promise that He would pardon their every crime and every misdeed for the merit of their accepting Islam. On the contrary, Islam proclaims that, for a Muslim, launching a jihad or war against the kafirs, is the highest virtue; higher even than a pilgrimage to Mecca (hajj), not to speak of lower virtues like prayer (namaj) and fasting (roja). Allah also makes the spoils acquired by doing jihad, lawful for the Muslims. So, according to Islam, Muslims are not supposed to create wealth but they are to acquire wealth from the kafirs by doing jihad. Or in simple words, Muslims are directed to acquire wealth from a class of people by theft, burglary, robbery or by any other criminal procedure. Hence in Islam, there is no agenda like human resource development.

In addition to that, there lies a great risk in educating and enlightening the Muslims as in that case it would be very difficult for the mullahs to brainwash them and hence they may start questioning Islam itself and refuse to believe the most unscientific and irrational diktats of the creed. In such a situation, the mullahs would fail to keep their hegemony and vested interests. Due to this reason, during the British rule in India, the mullahs prevented the Muslims of this country to receive English education and confined the Muslims within the madrassa education so that they might not learn anything beyond the Koran and the Hadith.

To explain this aspect, a reader in his reply to me, writes, “Now, see what happened after the British people took over India from the Muslims. They were liberal .They spread education and modernity in India. They treated all equally. They encouraged those who were willing to acquire knowledge. Hindus grabbed the opportunity and rose to eminence in British India. At the same time Muslims chose to remain inside the cocoon they wove around them. Mullahas prevented the Muslim mass from going to schools and colleges except to Mosques and madrassas where they studied only Koran.By the time Britishers left this country Hindus were in dominant positions where as the Muslims were cycle repairers, umbrella makers and odd mechanics devoid of modern education.” It is another glaring example to show, how Islam is pulling the Muslims from behind in their race of progress and civilization.

The Rapid Growth of Population, another reason for Backwardness:

Another major cause of backwardness of Muslims is their plan to swell their population with the sinister design to out-number all other non-Muslim population and hence to establish Islamic rule by sheer head count. Due to this reason, they deliberately reject any kind of family planning measure and each and every Muslim male is trying to produce as many children as he can, even with the help of polygamy. An example may be cited to make the reader aware about what horrible dimension this effort may reach to. According to a press report, appeared in the English daily The Times of India on June 26, 2007, a Muslim couple of Rajasthan produced 23 children in their 24 year married life. One of my friends has narrated to me that in the state of West Bengal, a Muslim male has produced 29 children out of his two wives.

In India, a Muslims are at liberty to follow the Shariah law in civil matters, which permits a Muslim male to keep four wives. If each wife gives birth to 5 children, (that too on the lower side), it is possible for him to raise 20 children without facing any hurdle. The mullahs always keep close watch on the women of their locality so that the housewives may not avail any family planning measure or approach a clinic for this purpose. If any woman take the help of any kind of family planning measure, the mullahs immediately convene a kangaroo court that directs the husband to divorce his wife. The husband finds no other alternative but to comply with the order under the threat of excommunication from the society. Many believe that due to this unbridled growth, India’s Muslim population would rise to 340 million by 2041. It only possible for the dirty creed called Islam to prescribe such a dirty procedure to swell population, without caring for the quality.

It is needless to say that, even for a middle class family, it is not possible to provide adequate food and nutrition to so many children, not to speak of good education. There is also no doubt that, raising so many children ruins the economic backbone of a family. So, it is one of the major causes of rampant poverty among the Muslims.

While commenting on this aspect of the Muslim society, a reader writes, “Muslims breed like rats, vermins and bacteria... all for one purpose: to reduce the kaffirs into a minority, and then decimate them or convert them to the mad backward cult of Islam so that Islam may rule the world! Then what happens? Will there be peace? Will there be economic progress? Will there be advancement of Knowledge? Absolutely NO! Why? Because the mad mullahs would have reduced everyone to be the lackeys and slaves of the Arabs and there is no need to look beyond the filthy books of Quran and the Sunnah.” ! That's the ultimate objective. Women will be used and thrown like commodities, there will be slavery of the remaining 'kaffirs' or neo-converts. There will be an accelerated extinction of human species. And this is what 'islam' augers for the humanity! That is islam the most backward, criminal and mafia cult in the garb of "religion" ,but totally lacking in spirituality and humane values!”

To highlight the physical and pathological aspect of this rapid population growth, another reader writes, “Rapid population explosions due to indiscriminant breeding weakens the genetic strain, and allows for the introduction of physical and mental pathologies...Hemophilia, other blood diseases, severe vitamin D deficiencies, and other malady's are overtaking the 'Religion of Peace', and causing it to compost from the inside out...If Islam continues to breed at an alarming rate, eventually it will be an Ummah of sick and mentally stupid, retarded people...Some people think Islam is at that stage already.”

It is difficult for the reader to comprehend what could be the plight of these backward, intellectually retarded stupid people. To describe this dismal state of affairs, the Sachar Committee writes, “In the field of literacy the Committee has found that the rate among Muslims is very much below than the national average. The gap between Muslims and the general average is greater in urban areas where Most of the women and 25 per cent of children of Muslim parents, in the 6-14 year age group, have either never attended school or have dropped out.”

The Committee further observes, (Due to this intellectual backwardness), “The participation of Muslims in the professional and managerial cadre is low. The presence of Muslims has been found to be only 3% in the Indian Administrative Service (IAS), 1.8% in the Indian Foreign Service (IFS) and 4% in the Indian Police Service (IPS). Muslim community has a representation of only 4.5% in Indian Railways while 98.7% of them are positioned at lower levels. Representation of Muslims is very low in the Universities and in Banks. Their share in police constables is only 6%, in health 4.4%, in transport 6.5%. Substantially larger proportion of the Muslim households in urban areas are in the less than Rs.500 expenditure bracket. And therefore, the access to government schools for children of Muslim parents is limited.”

The analysis suggests that, due to rapid growth of population, or giving birth to many children, a Muslim child experiences a significantly greater risk of being a victim of malnutrition, underweight or stunted than a Hindu child belonging to Scheduled Castes (SC) ana Sheduled Tribe (ST). However, relative to this group, the SC/ST children as well as Other Hindu children also have a higher risk of being underweight and stunted. Indeed, the differences among the three groups are relatively small and not significantly different from each other.

In conclusion, the evidence shows that Muslim children are at a slightly higher risk of child malnutrition than other Hindu children. However, they are less likely to be underweight or stunted than SC/ST children. But in two regions - the North and the East - the rate of low birth-weight babies among Muslims actually increased sharply between 1992-93 and 1998-99, with Muslims performing much worse than the all-group average for the two regions. There is an enigma in the finding that Muslims have a marginal advantage over other Hindus in infant and under-five mortality as the Muslims are comparatively more urban and hence they can avail better clinical facilities for child birth in government hospitals in the cities and towns.

But they suffer a disadvantage in child nutrition rates as they are unable to feed so many children they produce for rapid growth of population with the aim of turning India into a dar-ul- Islam in quickest possible time. It is not difficult to understand that these under nourished children are destined to grow up as intellectually under rated stupid people incapable of receiving modern education and unfit for securing better, even moderately paid, jobs in a highly competitive job market.
