The most painful thing a person can endure is the desecration of his most precious Deity. People never expect to return home after a long day of work to such a frightening scene. Recently in Bangladesh a new tragedy has occurred. A woman from a village in Bangladesh came to her home to find a severed head of Gau Mata on the floor in her house. There is no way to describe the shame or the pain of seeing such a gruesome scene. I feel her emotions inside of me like I am with her and her tears lingered with mine. Why would I feel this way about a Hindu family? Why does one Hindu family in Bangladesh matter? The answer is simple! This is the only Hindu family left in Bangladesh! A desecration of the their most sacred creature so readily done by extremists with no regard to the sensitivity or the sacredness of the Cow to Hindus. I feel this closely as I remember when Neo Nazis burned down the Mezuzah the case affixed to my doorpost containing the watchword of the Jewish faith known as the Shema. It was burned to the ground in front of my home. It was an omen, a sign of very bad fortune and caused me many tears, just as news that the last Synagogue, the Jewish place of prayer was closed down in Egypt caused me much pain and suffering. I pose the following questions: Why is the suffering of Hindus not recognized and not noticed or even reported in the international medias? Why is it necessary to destroy their holiest shrines and deities? What makes the violent extremist free to commit such acts of horror and the Hindu left helpless to defend themselves in a dominant Muslim region? Why do Muslims cry out that they are discriminated against yet repeatedly commit acts of discrimination, desecration, pain and suffering for those not sharing their political agendas? What Muslim would be brave enough to answer my questions with TRUTH? We hope for justice for this recent crime committed in Bangladesh. This is one of many crimes committed against Hindus and other religious minorities in Muslim populated regions. It is not JUST to claim pain and suffering over the same acts that you commit yourself! Bear this very close in your minds! When people commit acts such as this, there is no gain but merely further suffering! It is horrific and an outrage. If you do not believe me, please feel free to view the following photograph:
I want to remind everyone that Hindus are Humans like Jews, Christians, Buddhists, Sikhs and Muslims. These activities will know our protest at every turn! We will never back down against extremists and we will never suppress knowledge of such occurrences!
