…. from the quill of Antisthenes
The following item will appear in our History section on the proper date, but since the peaceful Muslims could not wait for the sixty-fifth anniversary and went on a killing spree in Bombay a day before yesterday, I thought I could quote it now:-
29th July, 1946 : The All-India Moslem League, meeting in Bombay, today called on all Moslems in India to be ready for every sacrifice, and to prepare for the “coming struggle”. The League’s Council voted unanimously to revert to the demand for a fully sovereign Moslem State of Pakistan and to withdraw acceptance of Britain’s long-term plans for India’s constitution. The League’s leader, Mr Jinnah, said: ”Bloodshed and civil war must be avoided if possible. But now there is no more room left. Now let us march on …”
To those educated in the politically correct Australian schools, I would like to say that the Muslims did get their separate state, Pakistan, in August, 1947, after 200,000 to 1,000,000 human beings were killed. Obviously, it was not enough and did not help in making a peaceful religion more peaceful. Our so called leaders, unless totally ignorant, know that the cowardice is counter-productive, but, oh, so attractive in the short term electoral cycle.
