In “About the Arabisation of Indian consciousness,” Alexander Zinoveiv (not the late Nobel laureate, but a sociologist with the Russian Academy of Sciences) decries the Arabic supremacism that recent converts to Islam are manifesting — partly as a challenge to Bengali cultural Islam and a reassertion of fidelity to the letter of the Qur’an and Sunnah.
From the Organiser (thanks to the Constantinopolitan Irredentist):
Wide territories are being irretrievably lost from the sphere of the Indian civilasation and are moved, in the spiritual sense, thousands of kilometers more to the west direction.
Listening to the names of many young Bengalese from Bangladesh nowadays one can’t help but wonder if their parents had used for reference some telephone directory from Kuwait, Abu Dhabi or Saudi Arabia before choosing their children’s names”¦ Is it possible that those people never feel they are committing a hideous treachery against a civilisation that is much older and greater than the Arabic one, and more important, has nothing to do with it?
Hindus who have adopted Islam are really strange people. Although, according to all laws of classical sociology and ethnology as well as common sense they should remain an integral part of the Indian people and nation, in fact, just the opposite occurs.
As soon as yesterday”s Hindu adopts Islam, he undergoes such an amazing transformation that can be only compared to the phenomenon that zoologists call metamorphosis. The typical peaceful Bengalese, with soft, harmonious facial features, in which every educated inhabitant of our world would unmistakably recognise “a child of the Indian plains”, will adopt fully the typical appearance of an Arab in just a couple of months””from his clothing, through the expression of his face and to his manners. His countenance will become soon hard and harsh, a typical feature of the Semitic race from the Middle East and in his gaze””severe and imperious””one will be able to see unmistakably the fanatical flame so characteristic for all Arabs.
Before long, the newly fledged Indian Muslim will start not only to resemble an Arab, but also to feel and think like such. His emotional nature will become turbulent and untamed, his reactions vicious, and yesterday”s quiet man, the most peaceful creature on the planet, will start shaking fists in the streets, shouting””with bloodshot eyes and spurting saliva from his mouth”””Kill the infidels!” and “Allah is great!” He will abandon his people’s traditional alphabet devanagari that his Hindu ancestors have used for centuries, to adopt the Arabic script. And, to top it all, he will completely alter his name. If he was named with some beautiful Indian name””like Satischandra Datta or Dhirendramonah Chatterjee””now he will call himself Abdul Rashid or Ibn Abi al Husein. To adopt the name of some mythical personage of the early Muslim history””like Muhammad or Ali””would be understandable and could be justified, but to renounce all your former names for other ones with the only reason of them being Arabic is completely inexplicable.
