Recently, Sonia Gandhi's Congress party's General Secretary, Digvijaya Singh, was on Peace TV, run by Dr. Zakir Naik. Addressing a large gathering of Muslims, Digvijaya Singh gave us a glimpse of how India's ruling party Congress views Zakir Naik, thanks to their practiced version of “secularism”.
 
Some “gems” from Digvijaya Singh during those eight momentous minutes, are listed below. Don't worry if you can't watch that video or any of the videos provided in this writeup. Don't worry if you don't follow Hindi. We will translate what's necessary, and will transcript what's necessary from the videos, so that you will grasp exactly what's going on. More importantly, we will only use good research or analysis that is already available on the internet, making this column more of a relevant compilation, rather than an original research.

# Islam came to India 1400 years back.

# Is desh mein dhaarmic yudh hindu aur musalmaano mein kabhi nahi hua.

# Shanti aur aman ka sandesh jan jan tak pahunchana, hamara farz banta hain.


Keeping aside Digvijaya's routine RSS or Hindu right bashing, that was also performed indirectly in that speech, let's examine how “knowledgeable” Congress party is when it comes to the *real* Zakir Naik and his “Peace” TV. In other words, how hollow the “secularism”, depicted in quotes for pseudo secularism, is in India. To make it easier, we might address Mr. Digvijaya Singh as Diggy going forward, as Diggy Raja is his nick name on internet and will strike a closer connection with the readers here.

1. Digvijaya's Praises for Zakir:
# Main Huzoor Doctor Zakir Naik sahib ka bahut aabhari hoon. {I am deeply grateful to his excellency Dr. Zakir Naik}

Dear Diggy “ji”.. Do you know that an eminent spiritual leader of India, Sri Sri Ravishankar, termed the same Zakir Naik as Murkh Shikhamani (Idiot among idiots), Nikamma Aadmi (Useless fellow) and Chhote Dimag Ke Log (small minded person/people) when recollecting his own personal experiences with the manipulating Zakir? Maybe you  never got a chance to see the following video and understand why such “adjectives” were showered for Zakir by Sri Sri, who hardly ever gets personal with anyone. Please watch now > YouTube

2. Digvijaya's Delusion About Zakir Naik's “Peace” Mission:
# Mujhe is baat ki khushi hain, ki wey Shanti ka sandesh poore vishwa mein phehla rahe hain. Shanti se hi pragati hoti hain. {I am happy that he is spreading the message of peace all across the world. Only with peace progress is possible}

# Please go abroad, but I also request you to travel into those parts of India where 1000 years of Hindu Muslim coexistence is being breached and you be the bridge to join them.


Oh Diggy sir... Oh.. How naive are you, or how naive you pretend to be? You are conveying that Zakir is on a “peace” mission, just because his blatant communal TV channel allowed by your government has a logo “Peace TV”?

For starters, your UPA government has banned Hindu Jagruti, Hindu Human Rights and other “communal” sites. But the same government allows Zakir Naik's so-called Peace TV. Do you even know that Zakir Naik, the chief of Peace TV, openly says that "Every Muslim Should be a Terrorist"? If you never heard of that, being busy with RSS bashing, please take a few minutes to watch it yourself > YouTube

Lakhs of people all around the world have already seen this over the past 6 years.

And Diggy “ji”, this one would be to your delight. This Zakir “ji” does not believe that Osama bin Laden “ji” was doing jihad at all. You can watch it yourself > YouTube

Per this "Doctor" Zakir Naik, BBC was showing bad actors pretending to be Taliban, Al Qaida does not exist & George Bush was Terrorist number One > YouTube. We are sure PM Manmohan Singh would be thrilled to learn all these before his next official US visit, particularly now that you have endorsed Zakir Naik.

And this must be very interesting for your party friends who kept on talking about visa for a long time. Do you know that Britain and Canada have banned Zakir Naik from even entering their nations? No, this is not because of any political lobbying or compulsions unlike other cases, but because of his open support for terrorism & suicide bombing. You don't have to take our word. Watch it yourself > YouTube.

So Diggy Raja “ji”.. you want THIS Zakir Naik to go and preach “peace” in India, where from time immemorial the very fundamental of the society is about Shantih, Shantih, Shantih {Peace, Peace, Peace}?

3. Digvijaya's Ignorance About Zakir Naik's True Intentions:
# Dr. Zakir sahib ne toh saare Dharm ke kitab padh chuke hain. {Dr. Zakir has read all religion's sacred texts}

# Mujhe mere Guru, mata aur pita ne kahin nahin sikhaya ki koi dharam kharab hota hain. {My parents and teacher has taught that no religion is bad}

# Insaan accha yaa bura hota hain, magar dharam kabhi bura nahi  hota. {Humans can be bad, but not religions}

# Aapka yeh shanti ka sandesh, is poore mulk mein pahunchna chahiye. Is mulk mein pahunch kar kone kone tak jaana chahiye {Your message of peace must traverse across this country. It should reach every corner of this country}

# Kuch log aise hain, jo Islam ko galat tareeke se pesh karte hain. {Some people portray Islam in bad light}


This gets very interesting. Digvijaya Singh wants us to believe that Zakir Naik is a very learned scholar across religions, he might believe that all religions are good as Diggy's parents taught him, he would preach equality of religions across India and most importantly, he gives us the *true* picture of Islam. The facts can't be any farther than this set of Diggy's beliefs about Zakir's preaching.

Firstly, maybe Digvijaya would be better off sharing this with all his Muslim friends. Zakir Naik has been exposed as a dishonest man who is fooling Muslims by dishing out fraudulent information > YouTube.

zakir naik, digvijay singh, exposed

It would be shocking for a neutral observer that such an “expert” whom Diggy “ji” was praising, made 25 mistakes in just 5 minutes of his speech. They have been well documented and discussed on the internet, like in this website> unchangingword.com

Zakir most likely has no clue about what evolution really is, how Darwin studied and formulated his theories, how Galileo was treated by those who disapproved his findings, what is an ice age, basics of Homo Sapiens (that we all are), Vitamin C is “discovered” and not “invented”, and details of Nobel prize winners and eminent scientists he “quotes” (or rather creates in his delusions). Once you pay attention to the video quoted above this paragraph and its transcript of 25 mistakes Zakir committed in just 5 minutes, you would wonder how people even watch such blatant lie machines & adore them?

It actually gets worse. You will laugh at the end of what's written in this video by Sikhs, when they call Zakir Naik's bluff on Sikhism > YouTube

And Diggy “ji”, when it comes to Hindu Dharma or Sanatana Dharma, Zakir is all manipulative. We told right at the beginning how a very learned spiritual Guru Sri Sri Ravishankar spoke about Zakir. Many other Hindus have exposed his half truths and blatant manipulation in presenting Hindu scriptures, where-in, his singular aim is to prove that Islam is “better”.

Here are some references for you to read :

# Zakir exposed when it comes to Rig Veda 1.18.9 > YouTube

# Awesome material on Agniveer website exposing Zakir Naik as a plagiarizer and much worse..

# Another website that closely watches Zakir's manipulations, Satyagni, demolishes Zakir Naik's lies about entry to Makkah & Madina.

These are just samples Diggy “ji”. There are literally 100s if not 1000s of resources on the internet that shred Zakir Naik's fraudulent manipulations. Muslims have confronted about his Islamic teaching, Evolutionary Biologists have junked his funny facts trying to show Islam's preaching is more accurate, Rationalists have stripped the lies about logic, Sikhs have taken apart his “facts” about Sikhism and Hindus have gone in great length to show that every major “glossary regurgitation” he does about Hindu scriptures are inaccurate interpretations. It's usually a selective quoting from other scriptures to suit his biased, 'my way or highway' exclusivist preaching. Such things should not be endorsed in a multi-religious secular nations like India.

And, you must be very confused Diggy “ji”, if you think this man would ever consider all Dharmas as equal and offers mutual respect. Just a week back, during Hindus' big Ganesh Chaturthi festival, he created ruckus like a true fanatic Islamist offending Hindus with half-baked understanding of Ganesha. Read more here.

4. Finally, Some “facts” from Digvijaya Singh:
# Islam came to India 1400 years back.

# Is desh mein dhaarmic yudh hindu aur musalmaano mein kabhi nahi hua. {There was never a war between Hindus and Muslims in India}

# Shanti aur aman ka sandesh jan jan tak pahunchana, hamara farz banta hain. {It is our duty to spread the message of love and peace to the public}


Now let's focus a bit on just Digvijaya Singh, leaving out Zakir Naik. No sir, Islam did not come to India 1400 years back. That was the time when prophet Mohammed was still alive and Islam was just within Arab peninsula.

Coming to your claim that there was never a war between Hindu and Muslim faiths in India, please... let's stop whitewashing the true (and bloody) history of India. You might want to read a bit about Muslim genocide of Hindus in India, the genocide beyond Hindu Kush, Hindu Temples what happened to them part 1 and part 2. Some even go to the extent of saying that fanatic followers of Islam in India killed more Hindus than any genocide ever killed in the history of the world! Yes sir, they are all conflicts between two faiths that continues to this day in the form of numerous communal riots which you would be well aware of.

And lastly, Diggy “ji”, of all the politicians in India, you, should go a bit easy preaching people about “farz”. India has seen how some kicks might have been delivered by your foot in full view of TV cameras.

Conclusion : Just eight minutes of Digvijaya Singh's speech is enough for most people to understand how hollow and artificial this whole mask of “secularism” in India is, and how it actually is nothing more than blatant minority-ism, or specifically a suck-up to intolerant Muslims like Zakir Naik, for en-bloc votes. also read this blog
