Muslim Murasu, July 2012
Governments are persistently involved in penetrating caste. Honorable M.G.R suggested to base demarcations on economic status. The idea was not implemented due to reaction from politicians.
Muslim preachers and intellectuals have no need to point fingers at other religions and their elements. Let us keep our house clean. Caste differences among Muslims following Islam have been kept under control. Differences, higher-lower dynamics, racial divisions have not been completely eliminated among Muslims. Native affinity and language are important reasons. Weekly Juma sermons have been bringing unity in Muslim society. Selfless service by Islamic missionary groups is continuously uniting servants of God. Caste is not allowed to enter. Caste is another form of Shirk, blasphemy. Narrow mindedness will not succeed.
Muslims in Tamilnadu are having to carry caste identities due to government stipulation. Let us limit caste to certificates. Caste divisions should not enter Mohalla. Government has not provided any guarantee for employment. All concessions based on caste are looting rights of another soul. Is caste important or Islamic ideology important? It is time Muslims in Tamilnadu decide. Hard work, self dependency, frugality, well-wishes from others and God’s grace only can give us life and help us grow. Rulers are forcefully staging drama to distract people. Caste based census and community certificate in schools are part of this farcical drama. Muslims should limit using caste lingo to certificate registration. Declining caste division is core principle in Islam. There should not be any weakness in this. When Muslims in Tamilnadu gain political strength, government will be appropriately guided. Attributes of Shirk will completely vanish. Recent Wahhabi ideas have decimated political strength of Tamil Muslims. Cruel consequences are reflected as community certificates in Muslim hands and caste identity on foreheads. Tawheed frontrunners caused divisions. Political ground was lost. Let us defeat the politics of dominant forces that permeate caste mentality.
