This gives a glimpse of the state of things to come in India as Muslim population reaches critical mass and they become increasingly bold. On the night of 25th June, there was the Muslim occasion of Shab-e-Baraat. Around 2,000 people wearing skull caps rampaged on the streets of Delhi, banging on cars, harassing women, blocking traffic, beating people. Not surprisingly, police under the “secular” UPA government did not do anything and the hooligans had full control of the city for hours. This was deliberate mass mobilization, with many bikes carrying registration number of neighboring states like UP and Haryana.

Shab-e-Barat revellers perform dangerous stunts on motorcycles, assault cops and flout all traffic rules
Chaos prevailed on the streets of Lutyens’ Delhi all through Monday night with hundreds of young Shab-e-Barat revellers zooming around on motorcycles, performing dangerous stunts, assaulting policemen and flouting all traffic rules and prohibitory orders. While one such motorcyclist was killed in a road accident, the police have arrested four persons and confiscated 65 vehicles.
Merrymaking on the Capital’s roads began late on Monday evening when young men and even minors emerged riding motorcycles in groups. Anticipating trouble, the police had made prior arrangements and put up barricades on all major stretches. However, heavy police presence could not prevent the revellers from throwing the traffic out of gear at places like India Gate.
Showing utter disregard for traffic rules, almost all the motorcyclists drove without helmets. “Three to four persons could be seen riding one motorcycle. They were encouraging each other to perform stunts on the road,” said Ravi, a resident of Laxmi Nagar.
Sandip Kumar, a resident of South Extension, said: “A group of young men, some of who appeared to be minors, were riding motorcycles at a very high speed. Some of them came from the wrong carriageway on Rafi Marg, passing nasty remarks at the bystanders waiting for public transport at a bus shelter. A little later I boarded a cab, which drove towards Zakir Hussain Marg, where again I saw a bunch of bikers without helmets zipping and policemen struggling to contain them. They managed to stop them from going towards India Gate. It led to a snarl in which my cab was also stranded.”
If you study Muslim societies, you will find that they operate in the same way everywhere — street power. They form mobs on the streets, with mosques acting as the command centers. The solution: Don’t let mobs form and don’t let mosques come up. Here is another eye-witness account of the mayhem:

This article is not intended to be either alarmist or provocative. It is the simple truth, however uncomfortable it may be to those who prefer to be couch potatoes in the purported safety of their cocoons. Because what happened on the night of the June 25 – 26 in the heart of our country’s administrative epicenter is clearly an indication of where we are headed if we do not take portents seriously.
On the night of June 25, my wife and I were driving back to our home in South Delhi. To give some relevant details, we took Sri Aurobindo Marg, the road that leads from the Medical Institute (AIIMS) to the IIT crossing and beyond. From the very beginning of the stretch, we noticed very dangerous things happening. Scores of motor cycles, invariably with more than two passengers on each, were racing down the road at very high speeds, forcing aside other traffic. Their contempt for pedestrians (admittedly few at that hour) was blatant. The bikers were all young men (certainly not elderly) and all of them sported traditional Muslim headgear, the white skullcap. They were performing dangerous stunts, including the usual “rear-wheel drive” they must have seen from C-Grade Hollywood films featuring Hell’s Angels and assorted gangs.
We really did not know what was going on, except that it was most unsavoury and unpleasant. Then we saw a number of police pickets along the stretch; all of them were inactive and generally having a yawn. The motorcycle goons did not attack us overtly but they were certainly threatening and making intimidating gestures while riding alongside. I rolled down my window and told the offending ones that I would run them down if they continued their threats. This may have had some effect, since they drove off to bully other cars. Our experience was certainly less frightening than other incidents reported in Wednesday’s papers. Around the India Gate area, there were people who complained that the thugs had jumped on their car bonnets and monkeyed around.
To return to our experience, the mystery was resolved when we came to the Green Park Masjid. The bikers were heading to the masjid which was already crowded, with people spilling on to the street. Here too, the police pickets were doing nothing to control their criminal behaviour. Delhi’s Finest, who had no hesitation beating up sleeping women and children mercilessly at the Ramdev rally last year, were lolling around and watching the open goondaism with complete disinterest.
Orders from above, or complicity, or sloth or a combination of all three? In any of these four scenarios, the signs are ominous – of clear and present danger for our country and ancient civilisation. I have no hesitation in postulating the thesis that militant Islamic forces are testing the mettle and resolve of the Indian Republic, every now and then, with carefully-strategised acts of provocation. And on each occasion, they have succeeded in showing up our civilian administrative apparatus in its true colours – a floundering vessel manned by hopelessly incompetent and weak flunkeys.
In January 2011, extremist Islamic forces had taken the Mickey out of the Indian state. Again, the confrontation took place in the heart of the nation’s capital and the Indian republic retreated ignominiously. To give a background for the readers – the Delhi High Court had ordered that the authorities (in this case, the DDA) were permitted to demolish a mosque illegally constructed on public land. The High Court order was passed after many years of deliberation and hearings. However, this was not good enough for an assorted bunch of mullahs and politicians from parties like the Congress and the Samajwadi Party. Two days of open battle followed between inflamed and fanatic Muslim mobs, and a palpably defensive security apparatus, clearly under instructions from high above, not to react. A friend who stays near the affected area told me then that it was a “semi-war” situation, Calcutta 1946 redux. I had referred to it as the beginning of the campaign for the resurrection of the Great Delhi Caliphate.
Similarly, a few months ago, lakhs of Muslims in Kolkata held a most inflammatory meeting in the heart of the city, the Maidan, to protest against (and now hold your breath) the war crimes trials in Bangladesh against the razakars and pro-Pakistani militia that aided and abetted the Pakistani Army’s genocide of Bengalis during the 1971 liberation war. In other words, Indian Muslims and their ideological masters were rooting for persons who had fought the Indian armed forces, not to mention their fellow Bengalis.
The Calcutta “protesters” were brought in buses from all parts of West Bengal and shouted the most virulent Islamist slogans. Their banners were no less incendiary. Naturally, the Mamata Banerjee Government did nothing to either control the patently illegal gathering or to ask the Muslim leadership in West Bengal to dilute its posture. A young Army officer posted in Fort William, across the Maidan, told me that he, his brother officers, and the jawans were extremely upset by the disgusting spectacle played out before their eyes.
In this entire dismal litany, we are, of course, looking only at the most egregious incidents that have somehow caught public attention. This includes the desecration of the war memorial in Mumbai last year by another murderous Muslim mob protesting against another imaginary grievance. The culprits who committed this most heinous offence were caught on camera but one does not know how the Indian state and its justice system have dealt with them.
There are many who will pretend that all is hunky dory. That the goons on Tuesday night were a bunch of misguided youngsters. Or that this was an isolated incident perpetrated by irresponsible Muslim elements. I can almost hear the secularist storm troopers coming out with drivel like this. However, if the rest of the country’s educated and informed citizens subscribe to these fantasies, it would mean living in self-denial and delusion.
The official leadership of Indian Islam is now in a state of open confrontation with the Indian state. These people have given up all pretensions of being Indian and the only identity they can and will espouse is that of Islam. The alliance of forces in this abysmal and appalling scenario is disturbing and dangerous. Whenever the mullahs challenged the Indian republic and got away clean with their insurrection, they were instigated, aided and abetted by the Congress and other motley groups.
As the open season of Islamo-fascism against India continues, it is time to remember one of the greatest thinkers of the last century:
Don’t rejoice in his defeat, you men!
Although the world stood up and stopped the bastard
The bitch that bore him
is in heat again.
