Allegations have been levelled against a Muslim government official of forcing Hindus to work on Diwali day in Tamil Nadu. Hindu organisations took up the issue and complained to police after which Hindu employees were sent home.
Hindu Munnani has alleged that the Assistant Commissioner of Palai religion in Tirunelveli, Jehangir Badshah, forced Hindu employees to come to office and work on Diwali day. The information spread throughout WhatsApp groups as the Hindu employees complained about it in messages.
Hindu Munnani took up the issue and went to the police. Following this, police visited the office and came to know that Hindus were indeed made to work on Diwali day. Later they were sent home to celebrate the festival.
Even though it is a small incident it shows the power non-Hindus have over Hindus by occupying top positions. While Hindus wax eloquent about secularism, abrahamics try every trick in their pocket to make Hindus give up their tradition and force them into forgetting their roots. Recently, a video of senior IAS officer Mohammad Iftikharuddin of Uttar Pradesh rocked the social media. In the video he urged Muslim youth to spread Islam all over the world. He has also been accused of holding such religious meetings in his official residence helping Islamic missionaries to spew hatred on Hindus.
Creating and earning wealth is important. But in a democratic setup holding power whether political or bureaucratic is also important. Hindus shouldn’t choose one over another and act wisely in occupying important positions.
