Tulja Bai stood up to mob to save Osman’s family




By Mohammed Siddique, TwoCircles.net

Bhainsa (Andhra Pradesh): It is exactly nine days since the most deadly communal riot this area had ever seen broke out in Bhainsa, poor town of underdeveloped Adilabad district.

As the dust storm raised by the deaths and destruction is settling down, along with the tales of woes of the victims, the stories of humanity and spirit of bravery to save the live of the people of other communities are also coming to the light.

One such story belongs to 60 year old Tulja Bai, a brave woman who led the army of her son, daughters and grand sons to save the life of the family of a Muslim neighbor whose house was set on fire with three children and a woman inside.

The laudable story of putting the lives of her own family in grave danger, taking on a frenzied mob, many of them drunk to save others has now become the talk of the town as more and more people are acknowledging and applauding the gritty old lady. But Tulja Bai is taking it all in stride.

"What I did was nothing extraordinary. After all it was our duty to take care of our neighbor in the time of distress", she says with whole hearted laugh.

Her neighbor Syed Mohammed Pasha and Syed Osman on the other hand have not stopped thanking Tulja Bai, her son Thakur Ramesh Singh and other family members. "We owe the lives of our family to Tulja Bai", said Pasha.

Recalling the Friday, October 10, when the communal violence had erupted during the Durga procession near her home, just behind the Panjesha mosque, Tulja Bai told this correspondent, "my family was watching the goings on from our window. The mob was rushing in to our lane and attacking houses, breaking downs and looting. When we saw smoke coming out of the house of Osman, we rushed out. When I saw a small child running out of the burning house, we realized that there were people inside".

Even as the mob threatened and abused Tulja Bai to prevent her from going inside, she and other family members rushed in to the house and rescued the lives of Safia Begum, wife of Osman and her three children.

"We took them inside our house and ensure their safety. Then we returned with the water to put out the fire. Some people in the mob tried to snatch away the buckets from our hand but we pushed them back. I told them this is the matter of our locality and these people were like our family members and no body should stop us from helping our neighbors".

Tulja Bai used the water stocked in her home to put the fire in Muslim neighbor’s house.
"At the time no male member was at home as I was out to report the procession and the trouble", said Pasha, who works as a reporter for a Hyderabad based daily. "My brother had also gone out along with other family members. We had not expected any trouble as Durga procession has become an annual affair for last three four years", he said.

Though the four members of the family survived, the house and the life long savings of the family was looted or burnt. All the belongings kept in two rooms were turned in to ashes. TV was crushed to pieces and the iron Almriah was reduced to mangled steel.

"The assailants took away RS 1.3 lakh in cash, 19 tolas of gold and 40 tolas of silver. The cloths and other items kept for marriage of our girls were also taken away or burnt. The furniture was broken in to pieces", Pasha said.




Burnt and looted shops in Bhainsa

Both Tulja Bai and Pasha said that while the Hindus and Muslims in these parts of Bhainsa were living together for centuries with out any trouble, it was the people from other parts and outside who indulged in violence and attacks on houses and shops.

"I told the mob that they should do what they want to do in their own areas and not come to our area", said Tulja Bai. "Both our families have been living together for centuries. Osman calls me Khala and they are like our children", she said.

Tulja Bai was of the view that the communal trouble has become a regular occurrence in Bhainsa because of insistence of the organizers of Ganesh and Durga procession that they will sing and dance near the mosque and Muslims objecting to it. "There is no other reason for the trouble", she said.

Terrorism

Dears,

Please be alert everywhere whoever living india, Now a days is becomes very dangerous country international wise with wild communal riots where all minorities are under threats of hindu terrorists even hindu backward casts are murdered most of the states in india by hindu terrorists but most of such incidents being not reported and also misusing their ignorance . Now there is a strange news from our great prime minister still he is having good voice about respected indian citizen who are suffering in Sri lanka but sri lanka ignoring indian prime minister's request not to hurt thamilians moreover they responded they will continue keep on killing them because they are laughing at India why even sri lanka not used to consider indias primes word, everybody all around the world who are listening the activities of hindu terrorists against minorities who are belongs to india, indian blood, so on murdering wildly in india itself by hindu terrorists but there is no any serious action against them in order to stop their devilish activities instead he is making voice upon other countries. here india itself getting fool before other countries we should respect every body even thamilians we shouldn't ignore it as the people who are belongs to indian territory they should get due protection to their life and wealth but here why indian prime getting fooled because he cannot control their people in his ruling country so far.

most of the minorities in india is under communal riots and threats to their life & wealth they are not feeling freedom in the Republic of india as an indian they murdering by authorities too, their wealth are stolen, their humanitarians are broken, there is no safe & secure place to minorities even in india, indian citizens are worrying to live in great india, what is the tragedy it is, how terrible it is, indian people ( all religion )whoever working abroad they are feeling more confortable & freedom to live other countries than who will feel in india, why so happend, every mother country should provide due protection to their life & wealth to its citizen in the same country. if one govt. cannot give such protection, what it does it mean. several communal riots have been taken place in india, if we take a tour to the history we can see there is no any major arrests against them. even the minorities who lost everything during that happens but still we can see our indian govt. did not compensate them because minorities should respond legally, they should ask sufficient compensation from govt. they should be rehabilitated unless otherwise these types of hazardous things how could they overcome, govt. should understand one thing they could keep the minorities be protected, they should feel freedoms of india at least. if there any losses which was happen to the minorities it should be compensated and let them live safely.

every indian should be united. that will be our watchword let every religion live safely in our great india, religions shouldn't be hurts each other instead every religion should be respected, moreover it never be a boundary in our indian community, India should be a beautiful garden with different flowers in different colors, if so how beautiful it will be in the view of other countries.

Have a nice days.

Hindutva Terrorism

One should observe that generally in all communal violence Hindus are involved and it is instigated by their fascist Hindutva groups. Several government commissions set up to investigate communal riots have shown this.

There is no violence between Christians, Muslims, Sikhs and Buddhists. That is no coincidence. So why do Hindus behave in this way ?

In my observation, Hindus suffer from insecurity and an inferiority complex. It can be seen in their writings here.

These twin factors make them produce Bal Thackerays, Togadias, Advanis and Modis. No other community in India will produce such people.

The worst Hindus come from Gujarat and Maharashtra, so it is not surprising they lead the stakes for communal riots.

Their heroes are bandits like Shiva(ji) and Hitler !

Contemporary evidence indicates that Hinduism is incompatible with India becoming a developed nation.

As a result of the nasty situation developing in India due to the Hindus, I believe conversion of Hindus will be beneficial for India.

Some Hindus boast to me about the Virtues of Hinduism and about dharma, but when you ask them what benefit these have done for India, they cannot say.

Advani - Mastermind of all Terrorism in India

Let me analyse Advani's character and contribution to India.

Advani's slogan in the 1990s was garv say kaho hum Hindu hain.

This is not his invention; the RSS has a booklet with this name, where all manner of incredible achievements are attributed to the Hindus.

Now what is the meaning of this statement ?

Firstly, it indicates a communal mind.

A patriot will tell Indians to have pride in being Indian, not Hindus to be proud to be Hindu.

Secondly, if he asks Hindus to be proud to be Hindus, it implies Hindus were previously ashamed to be Hindus.

The question then is Who made the Hindus ashamed to be Hindus ? Christians and Muslims ?

I am not aware of Christians and Muslims telling the Hindus to be ashamed. The Hindus themselves feel ashamed !

With such a religion and its monstrous practices, that is bound to be the case.

Finally, what is the solution to regaining Hindu pride ?

Advani's approach was to train Hindus in mob violence. Raise mobs, break mosques and churches, and conduct pogroms. This brings pride to Hindus, but internationally it brings shame to India and contempt for Hindus.

Advani probably knows this, so as his target shifts to the post of PM, he is now trying to distance himself from Hindutva.

Hence, his condemnation of the rape of the nun.

But the saying about such shady Hindus is Muh main Ram aur bagal main churi !

Our demand is that the trial of this Hindu fascist should be expedited and he should be barred from contesting elections.

Laloo told Advani to go to his homeland - Pakistan !!

Advani is a power hungry Hindu, who thrives on stoking the Hindu inferiority complex.

People with inferiority complex have nothing to teach.

Advani proclaimed the RSS slogan 'garv say kaho hum Hindu hain'.

Now, this is the proof of the Hindu inferiority complex. This slogan implies that the Hindus felt ashamed to date !

After Advani charged the Hindus with this vain pride, they went on the rampage, killing, raping and rioting. This has become the standard show of Hindu pride.

Thus, the Hindus became the most anti-national group in India.

Advani threatened Pakistan with hot pursuit after testing nuclear weapons. But after Pakistan tested, he went meekly to Lahore on a bus, and was given ladoos. Soon after, Pakistan seized Kargil.

During Advani's time, an Indian plane was seized and the BJP went and Jaswant Singh personally delivered prize militants !

The maximum terrorist attacks occurred in Advani's term. Out of power, Advani has been a sorry spectacle.

He went to Pakistan at Mushharaf's invitation, and declared Jinnah as a very secular person. (But this is the man who specialised in calling Indians pseudo-secular !!).

The best quip was from Laloo, who said it is understandable because Advani was a Pakistani, he had a soft corner for his homeland !

After that, he sudra donkey Uma Bharati split with him and others left the BJP.

If Advani becomes PM, I can imagine the same kind of boycotts Modi faces when he tries to go abroad. Human Rights groups will file cases against Advani.

It will attract very poor publicity for India when such a PM visits Europe, UK or US, and public protests are launched. Muslim countries will not let him in either. The Saudi King visited in India during Manmohan Singh's term.

Earlier, during the BJP rule, he gave India a miss when he went on an Asian tour.

I remember the BJP felt slighted at the time because the Indian press pointed it out -when people boycott you, those with an inferiority complex feel the most !

Tulja Bai...

Tulja Bai of Bhainsa - you are our Laxmi Bai of Jhansi.
Tulja Bai must be given a seat (for Parliament) by Political Parties who claim to be secular. We need people like Tulja Bai in Parliament. India has become too corrupt. It would need a blood-transfusion now.

Shame on you

You miserable muslims have the audacity to criticize Hindus defending their culture against the never ending Jihad muslim religion of hate?

Why don't you blame your own coreligionists for the persecution of Hindus in Pakistan, going from 15% in 1948 to less than 1% today? Why don't you take a look at how Hindus are treated in Bangladesh with their land confiscation laws and huge scale pogroms that resulted in a reduction of Hindus from 25% to 10% today?

Look at yourselves before you criticize Hindus. It isn't the Hindus that went to Arabia to destroy Mosques and plunder it. Repent for the past deeds of your bloodthirsty barbarian ancestors who ended up being nothing but demons in India. Repent and take a good look at your religion first.

I already explained why BJP Hindus broguht culture of Mob

India TV announced that 5 minutes before, they received an e-mail warning them of the attacks. 5 minutes after the blasts, the police and govt. announced some unheard-of Muslim group committed it, and they give all manner of details.

The Hindu police are a bunch of jokers. They say the blasters left a cycle with the name of someone from Saudi Arabia !! Hindus are such fools they will believe it.

BJP Hindus, you need to check my previous analysis, which can be found in the title piece of this forum.

I did state that Advani and the BJP brought the culture of Hindu mob violence and Muslim bomb blasts.

These things never happened before the Babari masjid. Who brought this about ?

The Hindus - like you, who voted for Advani and Modi. The Hindu instigators of pogroms and massacres go scot free.

The police, the government machinery and the courts shield Hindu criminals - always. So there will be a reaction. There has to be reaction.

The alleged bombers of Bombay have been convicted. But the Srikrishna report which indicted top Hindu leaders for the riots (which were the cause for the blasts) have not been convicted.

It does not matter whether it is Congress or BJP. The system will not convict Hindu criminals. That is the topic of this forum.

That is why I say India is a pseudo- democracy.

The Hindu understanding of democracy is to stage a pogrom in order to get elected. Thus, whether you have 9% growth or not, unchecked Hindu criminality will cause violence from time to time.

Hindus will commit atrocities against Muslims. So minorities will retaliate.

Hindu judiciary will also pay for convicting one community and delaying or blocking conviction of criminal Hindus.

According to India TV, the militant group has announced that in future the Hindu police will be targetted.

Hindus should not imagine they can live in peace in India after attacking others.

All this will go on till the police is decommunalised, the judiciary does its job impartially and till politicians are held accountable regardless of being Hindu.

POTA cannot save you. You cannot get Kashmiris to accept India. Muslim resistance will spread to the rest of India.

So why don't you reject Hindu criminals ? Are we stopping you ?

Reply to Maxilo (Brother of A.K Singh) Another Hindutva Hindu

Great, Archaeoastronomy !! The usual Hindu pseudo science

Archaeoastronomy !! What branch of science will the Hindus invent ?

Khushwant Singh says that the most accurate description of the Hindus was given by Alberuni.

He observed that Hindu knowledge was like a mixture of pearls and dung.

The two kinds of knowledge are equal to them. AK Singh used to write similar nonsense.

Einstein discovered that matter is frozen energy. And Hindus found that Hinduism is solidified consciousness, he told us !

On the Ram Sethu controversy, Karunanidhi said that Rama was a fictitious character.

To support the Hindutva line, some Hindu organisation in the U.S. wrote that Ram Sethu could be seen in NASA photos. Thus, the Hindu claim was given a pseudo scientific respectability.

But NASA issued a statement saying that while their photo showed a feature, it could not be ascertained whether this was natural or an engineered feature.

During the BJP era, Murali Maonohar Joshi, a professor of physics was promoting Hindu superstitions like vasthu shastra as science.

The VHP funded some Hindus at Lucknow university to research into the medicinal properties of cow's urine.

The researchers duly found that some ingredients of cow's urine increased the potency of anti biotics.

Then there was that Hindu charlatan, Ramar Pillai, who invented herbal petrol. The RSS wanted to give him awards !

Ten years ago the Hindus ran to temples because Ganesh was drinking milk.

It was the pheonomenon of capillarity, whereby a porous stone sucks up liquid.

Recently, the Hindus claimed Hanuman was crying because water was oozing out of his eyes.

These people are the crawling stage of development. We have to encourage them to stand up.

Dare to Critisize Every Terrorism

Every body should dare to criticize any kind of terrorism even if it is from Hindu Terrorists, and don't try to make the people fool around overlooking the things and get fool yourself as well.

Jai Hind

Peacefulness

we should think of our mother country where there should have peacefulness, every body should enjoy it, we don't throw worthless words here & there, we should use valuable words which would keep our country more safe & comfortable to every body even other people than from India.

Bharatmatha ki Jai

What is Jihad

Please we have a request to every body whoever criticizing the word "Jihad" what is Jihad in Islam. the word " Jihad " is misused by Hindu Terrorists, they have created their own meaning themselves about it circumstantially.

Please study the Real Islam first, then you criticize Islam that will be good for you & others to understand it meaningfully & remove the bad pictures of Islam from your mind itself which somebody have created on you in order to make Islam hatred.

Indianism & Hinduism

Dear Fellow Indian Brothers/Sisters,
Before commmenting I would like to greet you all "peace be on you"

We all need to understand the difference between Hinduism and Nationalism (or more specific Indianism).

Hinduism and Indianism is totally two different concepts.

Lets see what is Indianism. As per my understanding. To be an Indian or have passion for India or Indianism, the only thing we need to do is to love the country and have trust and faith in its Constitution and abide the laws of the country. Loving the country is different than worshiping the country. The Indian constitution does not asks any of its citizen to wroship it.

Lets have brief understanding of Hinduism (correct me if I am wrong). Hinduism is mythology, way of life and an ancient civilization. Anyone who follows this mythology/way of life can be a Hindu whether he lives in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal ,Sri Lanka or any part of the world. To be a Hindu, there is no restriction to be an India.

In 1947, when India became an independent country and the total land was divided into two countries India and Pakistan. Pakistan declared itself as Islamic Country(muslim coutry is a more appropriate word as they do not and did never followed Islamic Law) and India declared as a social democratic country (not a Hindu Country). We can not equate the attitude of Pakistan (now Pakistan & Bangladesh) with India as India is a social democratic country as per its constitution whereas Pakistan is not a social democratic country. They are not our role models.

The concept of Nationalis was mixed (or merged with Hinduism) by the Right wing RSS/VHP and its political wing BJP.
If Hinduism (defined by RSS/VHP/BJP) is same as nationalism, then why not these nationalists respected the Suprem Court of the nation and did not waited for its decision and took the law in their own hand in undemocratic ways and demolished Babri Masjid on 6th December 1992.This was the first sign of their anti-nationalism.

When Supreme Court intervened in the affairs of muslims of India in their personal law, muslims of India did not took law in their hands and never asked for any help from Pakistan or other muslim countries but used democratic means to revert the decision of supreme court.

We all forget that if there is a personal law for muslims in India then there is a Hindu law also. India has given religious freedome to all of its citizen.

Can we imagine how the British must be feeling when the British Citizens (People of Indian Origin) supports India against England in Cricket. Same thing is true for Indians supporting Pakistan against India. These is anti-nationalism. Supporting Pakistan against anyone other than India is your choice but supporting Pakistan against India is anti-nationalism. Samething is true for British (PIO) supporting India against England. This is anti-nationalism.

There is a misconception that Islam had ruled on India for centuries and Hindus have been suppressed. If you read the history, it was muslims (most of them were muslims for namesake only and some of them were not at all muslims, eg. Akbar) who ruled the country. For the rulers, slaves were slaves, does not matter whether they were Hindus or muslims. Only Royal family and few close to them (Irrespective of Hindus or muslims) flourished. The masses (Hindus or Muslims) remained poor and suppressed.

We talk about the declining population of Hindus in Pakistan and Bangladesh but forgot to mention the declining Budhist, Jain population in India. Three out of four great Kings of India (Harsh Wardhan, Chandragupt Maurya and Ashoka ) were Budhist.
Do not get into the trap of power hungry BJP and destroy the harmony of India.

I will recommend all of the readers to read any History Book (Please do not read History from RSS/VHP/BAJRAND DAL/JAMAAT-E-ISLAMI and other political groups websites and books). Better read from International Historians.

We need to be logical and should always put country's interest on top.

"Jo karega Imteyaaz rang-o-nasal woh mit jaega"

Those who discriminate with skin color or creed will perish.

Long live India.

TULJA BAI YOU ARE GREAT

//SHAME ON YOU// TULJA BAI WE ARE PROUD OF YOU BECAUSE YOU ARE A REAL HUMAN

DEAR BROTHERS ONCE AGAIN A WOMAN LIKE TULJA BAI HAS PROVED THAT HUMANITY IS THE REAL FAITH OR RELIGION AND THE RELIGION OF TRUTH NOT HATRED OR REVENGE AS SOME SO CALLED INTELLECTUAL CLAIM TO BE.

SO CALLED STORY OF MUSLIM ANCESTORS WERE DEVILS AGAINST NON MUSLIM ANCESTORS, EVEN IF IT STANDS TRUE NO SANE MIND CAN JUSTIFY KILLING OF INNOCENT LIVES JUST BECAUSE OF THEIR RELIGIOUS IDENTITY.

NONE IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE DEED OF OTHERS WHETHER IT IS ANCESTORS OR NOT UNLESS ONE FOLLOWS THE DEED GOOD OR BAD HIMSELVES. THIS IS THE TEACHING OF GOD AND THIS SHOULD BE ABOVE ALL VIEWS AND STORIES AND INCIDENTS FOR HUMANITY TO PREVAIL.

HISTORY AND STATISCTICS CAN BE WRONG FABRICATED AND MANIPULATED BUT NOT THE CURRENT AFFAIR WHICH ANY CONSCIOUS MIND DOES OR WITNESSES. LETS REMENEBER WE ALL BELONG TO THE SAME ANCESTORS AND INDEED TO ONE FATHER AND MOTHER THOUGH WE ARE OF ANY COLOUR TRIBE NATION OR RELIGION OR FAITH OR EVEN AN ATHIEST WE ALL ARE BROTHERS AS HUMANS,

SEE WHAT QURAN SAYS ABOUT THIS IN CHAPTER 49 VERSE 13

O mankind! Lo! We have created you male and female, and have made you nations and tribes that ye may know one another. Lo! the noblest of you, in the sight of Allah, is the best in conduct. Lo! Allah is Knower, Aware.

IF ONE DOESNT BELIVE IN THIS HE IS A NONBELIEVER OF GOD WHETHER HE CALLS HIMSELF
A MUSLIM ,A JEW , A HINDU, A CHRISTIAN , A BUDHIST OR A ATHIEST......

LET HUMANITY THE MAIN BASIC MESSAGE OF TRUE RELIGION OF GOD PREVAIL OVER ALL.

Tulja Bai

I need to say it again to all Hindus and Muslims
because my message seems to have been lost in bulk.

We need people like Tulja Bai on both
sides of the isle. There should also
be people on Muslim side of the isle
who can report to police before any
terrorist attack takes place. It is
not possible that these attacks could
take place without someone knowing of
the plan beforehand. Please think about
this, and act as a loyal citizen to
report terrorists to save human lives.

TULJABHAI

I AM IN THE OPINION OF THAT, TERRORISTS DOESN'T HAVE ANY RELIGION, NEITHER HINDU, MUSLIM, SIKH OR CHRISTIAN.
AFTER ALL THEY ARE TERRORISTS.

Tuja Bai - The brave woman

Tujabai stands the sign of prosperity. Being such people on the earth only the earth last more.
