Communal riots are also done in open daylights. There is no effort to hide their identity. Terrorists, on the other hand, have a very different persona. Try to provoke the image of a terrorist and a communal rioter in your mind and you would immediately spot the difference.


Besides, you won't find a terrorist using lathis, knives or swords in trying to strike down their target. They, at the minimum, use sophisticated guns and bombs, if not surface-to-air missiles to go after their objects.


Terrorists are also massively funded and have training camps to be readied for their mission. Communal riots could also be engineered--but to say that it's a cold-blooded and carefully planned is stretching the comparison too far--that is by and large.


This brings us to Mander's second assertion: that Hindus largely cause communal riots on religious minorities.


Before we go into the "Hindu bit," Mander must be told that communal riots have drastically declined under the Modi government in the last two years.


Mander's claim that Hindu cause majority of communal riots on religious minority is also stupid. Hindus are not in majority in all the areas of this country. In Hyderabad for instance we learnt of an incident when ringing of bell in Sri Bhagyalakshmi Temple in Char Minar area was banned a few years ago.


There are many areas in India where Muslims are in a majority. When communal riots happen, it's not Hindu "majority" who are behind communal riots on "religious minorities" in these areas. It's rather the other way around. Agripada and Nagpada areas in Mumbai are Muslim-dominated. Ponnani in Kerala is a Muslim-heavy area etc.


That is not to say that Hindus are not guilty of communal excesses. There are always fringe elements that go over the boil and cause havoc. But to say that Hindus, by and large, are reason for communal riots in this country is mischievous. If anything, it's part of "Anti-Hindu Agenda" that's been orchestrated by our intelligentsia and media.
