India's treatment of Muslims amid coronavirus is almost 'genocidal,' activist Arundhati Roy claims
Deutsche Welle ^ | 04/17/2020 | John Silk

Political activist Arundhati Roy accused the Indian government on Friday of exploiting the coronavirus outbreak to inflame tensions between Hindus and Muslims.

She told DW that this alleged strategy on the part of the Hindu nationalist government would “dovetail with this illness to create something which the world should really keep its eyes on,” adding that “the situation is approaching genocidal.” […]

Roy claimed the government was exploiting the virus in a tactic reminiscent of one used by the Nazis during the Holocaust.

“The whole of the organization, the RSS [Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, a Hindu nationalist group — Editor’s note] to which Modi belongs, which is the mother ship of the BJP [Bharatiya Janata Party], has long said that India should be a Hindu nation. Its ideologues have likened the Muslims of India to the Jews of Germany. And if you look at the way in which they are using COVID, it was very much like typhus was used against the Jews to ghettoize them, to stigmatize them.” …

Nonsense. The Germans did not want typhus among the Jews or anyone else. Things like that tend to get out of control very quickly. And they wanted control. It was not used to ghettoize anyone. The ghettoization was for ideological reasons, The speaker let her desire for emotional impact invalidate her argument.

Muslims, making political war no matter what... accusing others of genocide is really scary projection. These fools get our medical treatment and would be dying without it

What a hateful bunch

Actually, the ghetto was also used by jews as confinement for their own health... their hygiene and separation avoided them death by the plagues.

That article is an absolute revision. It was the majority outside dying which persecuted jews accusing them of throwing a curse at them. The muslim who are “majoritist” conforming lemmings like socialists want to do the same

In India, both are extremely violent and hateful. Let’s not forget Hindus do the same things to Christians as they do to Muslims in India.

India’s treatment of Christians, Sikhs, Dalits, Assamese, Bodos, Manipuris, Nagas, Tamils, and others is also genocidal.

None the less when the British liberated the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in April of 1945 there was a typhus epidemic raging through the camp. It necessitated the Brits to using earth moving equipment to dig mass graves and bury the hundreds of rotting corpses lying everywhere and burn down the infected barracks.

The Germans wouldn't have deliberately wanted disorder and disease in the camps but they certainly encouraged it, whether by accident or design through deliberate neglect and deliberate starvation of the inmates.

Ghettoization was deliberate plan by the Germans to concentrate as many Jews as possible in as small an area as possible prior to their being deported to the death camps. If any of them became ill or starved to death , so much the better.They SS didn’t give damn about the health and hygiene of any Jew in the ghetto.

I don’t recall when the Jews invaded Germany and killed 80 million native Germans.

Analogy fail!

Its always fun to watch these people write articles without providing any proper context.

What passes for insightful these days is really unreadable.

India’s treatment of Christians, Sikhs, Dalits, Assamese, Bodos, Manipuris, Nagas, Tamils, and others is also genocidal.

A quick look at Wikipedia tells us that Christians are a majority in a couple of Indian states and form a sizable minority in several other Indian states. Wikipedia also says Sikhs also form a majority in an Indian state and have sizable populations in other states. The genocide India seems to be practicing on its minorities seems to be the same kind of genocide Leftists keep saying the US is practicing on its minorities - imaginary.

Send all the muslims over to Pakistan. That is what the muslims wanted in 1948 was their own country and it was given to them. Now they want India to.

I am talking before WWIi, in the 18th and 19th century ghettos. This stuff had long been going on.

India has murdered about a million Siksh since 1982, about 100,000 Kashmiri Muslims, thousands more Muslims in Gujarat, at least 100,000 Christians in Nagaland plus tens of thousands of other Christians around the country, and tens of thousands of Assamese, Bodos, Dalits, Manipuris, Tamils, and others.
