To get job in Surat, Muslim took Hindu name; revealed when he was killed

Kamaal Saiyed
Posted: Dec 29, 2009 at 0522 hrs IST

Surat All Mehboob Pathan (50) of Valak village on Surat’s outskirts wanted was a job in the city. Having a Muslim name, he felt, came in the way. So, to get himself a job in Surat’s diamond units, he passed himself off as Jayenti Bhatti, and managed to find work in two separate units in the Kapodara area.

Early this week, his “cover” was blown, after he was brutally killed over a monetary dispute. As the distraught family stepped forward to admit that Jayenti Bhatti was indeed Mehboob Pathan, they worried that having been cremated as a Hindu, the practising Muslim’s soul may not find peace.

In the ledgers of Surat’s diamond units, there are many leading a double life like Pathan. His son Mushtaq is registered as Mukesh and daughter Samina as Sharmila, and both are afraid of losing their jobs if the fact was known.

Diamond industry sources and workers say many Muslims assume Hindu names to find work in the city’s lucrative diamond business.

One of them, Allarakha Khan, admits to having passed himself off as a Hindu like many others from his village. “We would not get a job if we are known to be Muslims. We have been doing this for a long time, and we take great care not to reveal our real names or addresses at work,” he told The Indian Express.

Rohit Mehta, president of the Surat Diamond Association, however, denied knowledge of Muslims passing themselves off as Hindus for jobs. “We will inquire into this,” he said.

Pathan’s story came to be known after his body was found in a farm at Antroli last Monday, with the head smashed in. The police registered a case and kept the unclaimed body in the Palsana Primary Health Centre mortuary till Thursday. Then they arranged to give Pathan alias Bhatti a Hindu funeral, with all the rites.

His family, who had been looking for Pathan, had filed a missing complaint. Then, seeing news stories in local newspapers about an unclaimed body, Mehboob’s brother-in-law Iqbal Pathan decided to check. By that time, Pathan had been cremated, but the brother-in-law identified him from a photo of the body.

The family says Pathan was a pious Muslim and the change of name was just so that he and his children could find and keep a job. “We are too poor to do anything, but how could the police dispose of his body the Hindu way?” asks son Mushtaq. “A genital examination would have shown he was a Muslim.”

Sub-Inspector of Kadodara police V R Malhotra said they had kept the body in the mortuary hoping someone would turn up. “We disposed it of according to Hindu rites not knowing he was a Muslim. The family turned up too late and we are now helpless.”

Kapodara police inspector S J Tirmizi, who is probing the murder, confirmed that Pathan had passed himself off as Bhatti for work. Manoj Rokad, who is the manager of the Varachha unit in which Pathan’s daughter Samina works as a diamond polisher, has reportedly confessed to the murder.

According to the police, Rokad had become a family friend of the Pathans and knew their real identities. Two years ago, Pathan had reportedly loaned Rokad Rs 60,000 for an emergency, which he never returned. Pathan used to call Rokad repeatedly asking him to return the same, and the latter reportedly asked Pathan to meet him on December 20. They went to Antroli village, where Rokad allegedly killed Pathan with the help of two other diamond polishers, who have been identified as Chhanya Rathod and Sanjay.

While Rokad has been held, and has reportedly admitted that they beat Pathan to death, Rathod and Sanjay are on the run.

A VERY SAD DAY FOR ‘SECULAR’ INDIA

Today’s issue of The Indian Express on its front page carries a story that exposes the depth of ingrained communal feelings against Muslims in India. It narrates how in Modi’s Gujarat, Muslims are changing their Muslim names to Hindu names, just to get jobs, which would have been denied to them, if their Muslim identity is known.

I will blame Congress, Nehru, Indira, Rajiv and now Sonia for this state of affair.

It is they who had indulged in double game and systematically reduced 150- 200 million Indian Muslims to such a level of desperation that their very survival as Muslims at grass root level has been so thoroughly become impossible. The other day, Indian Express had carried an interview with World Human Right Watch. A Pew report mentioned in The Times of India earlier gave India the dubious distinction of being wrecked by communal strife of the same intensity that has wrecked Iraq.

It is time, world at large takes note of how oppressed Muslims are in the so-called ‘secular’ and democratic India. If Muslims are forced to change their religion by undergoing such hardships for their very survival, this is cause for serious alarm.
Muslims should thank The Indian Express and Times of India, for swimming against the tide and forcing themselves against odds to bring such unpalatable ghastly truth into the public arena.

Congress must pass very stringent hate crime laws to punish those who have enjoyed absolute freedom and unaccountability to carry out their nefarious hate campaigns. If Prime Minister Manmohan Singh is so reputedly enomoured of his US connections, let him be bold and courageous enough to press for the same criminal laws that USupholds to fight religious hatred and criminal acts within their communities.

Hello Seekshidayath!
 
That's great that you are a Muslim first.  Then what are you doing to the downtrodden muslims?  Will it just help if you post all this stuff on the internet?  What do you think is the root cause of all this slavery kind of thing which you are trying to project with your post?  How do you think the awareness which you want to create among the people help in the betterment of our beloved India?
 
Have a nice time.

Mr. Naren.
What exactly is your intention in agitating on raising such issues. In many ways information itself is an objective. While Indian hindu fascist have been massacring Muslims for more than sixty years, your only concern seems to be goodwill of India. Mind you goodwill should be built on truth not on concoctations. Why do you think that Indian muslims should keep quite and allow to continue this genocide and humiliation in the name of loving the nation. Our attachment to our land is because of our inherent nature. It does not however mean that we continue to suffer in the hand of those people who unfortunately are born on the same land.
For three generation we are suffering from persistant humuliation in the hand of hindu fascists, and the govt. who is supposed to be custodian of constituition always gave them free hand to kill Muslims. Before agitating, I suggest you to read histrory of riot in post independent India. It will also be worthwhile to read something about pre-independent India riots. What we can say about this riot is that calling it riot is just insult to the word riot. It has always been one sided massacre by the acknowledgement of govt.
 
Do not complain, fix it if you can or else leave us to expose the real face of India Hindus.

Hello Seekshidayath after a long time!

How are you?
I was out of station for quite some time.

I still do not understand what perception you want to build among readers.  Why can't you show the progress the Muslims are making in different fields?

There are bad people in every community.  Human nature is itself biased and human beings are egotists.  Then why to attack a particular community?

Where we go wrong is we see it as a Hindu vs a Muslim.  But we have to see it as a human vs a human.

Let us go beyond our identities and make a better country.

Hello Abu Zaid!

There are fascists in Hindus.  But not all Hindus are fascists.  If all Hindus were fascists, then there would have been only Hindus in India.  There are more than 900 million Hindus in India.  I feel it is a quite large number when compared to 140 million Muslims.  Do you think 60 years are required to overwhelm such a small number?

Brother, Hindu-Muslim conflict predates even our independence.

I feel it is in the human nature through out the world.  Before the Muslims came to India, Hindus fought among themselves.  After the advent of Muslims, Hindus had a common enemy and fought with them.  Then came the British.  And Hindus and Muslims together fought with the British.

Now I feel we need another common enemy so that we are together again.  We are already having common enemies my friend.  They are poverty and corruption.  Why can't we fight them together for our common good?

And how can you expect the Hindus to take your side when you people have such opinions and post posts which seem more of an attack than "information"?

I hope you will keep your prejudices aside and work for a better world to live in.

Indian Muslim
By Mumtaz Alam Falahi,TwoCircles.net

New Delhi: Even hardcore terrorists and diehard Hindutva extremists could have a heart which can melt, forcing them to admit their sins. This became evident in the case of Swami Aseemanand. What moved old RSS man Aseemanand to confess his role in terror blasts in the country is not investigators’ hard questioning but the good moral conduct of a Muslim youth – 21-year-old Abdul Kaleem.

During his brief stay in Chanchalguda district jail in Hyderabad after his arrest in November 2010 in connection with Mecca Masjid blast case, Aseemanand encountered an inexplicable human experience. He was converted at heart by a young co-inmate Kaleem. Kaleem helped Aseemanand lot in the jail – he would help the old man by bringing him food, water etc. The terror conspirator was very much moved by the Muslim youth’s conduct. But the dramatic turn came when Aseemanand one day asked Kaleem to tell him about him and his family. One of hundreds of innocent Muslim youths languishing in jail in terror cases, Kaleem told Aseemanand he had served one and half years in the same jail in the Mecca Masjid blast case. He told him he was innocent. At that moment, the conscience in Aseemand woke up and he decided to confess the sins he has done and for which innocent Muslims youths are being punished.

“Sir, when I was lodged in Chanchalguda district jail in Hyderabad, one of my co-inmates was Kaleem. During my interaction with Kaleem I learnt that he was previously arrested in the Mecca Masjid bomb blast case and he had to spend about one and half years in prison. During my stay in jail, Kaleem helped me a lot and used to serve me by bringing water, food, etc for me. I was very moved by Kaleem’s good conduct and my conscience asked me to do prayschit (penance) by making a confessional statement so that real culprits can be punished and no innocent has to suffer,” Aseemanand said in his confessional statement before the magistrate in New Delhi on 18th December 2010.

In his 42-page confessional statement, Aseemanand confessed he and other Hindutva extremists were behind various terror blasts in the country including Malegaon, Ajmer, Mecca Masjid and Samjhauta Express. He has also named RSS leader Indresh Kumar as main conspirator. Aseemanand was arrested on 19 November 2010 by the CBI from a hideout in Haridwar. He had been a fugitive for over two years since Sadhvi Pragya’s arrest in October 2008.

According to Tehelka weekly which first disclosed Aseemanand’s confession, Kaleem, a cell phone seller, was arrested and tortured in 2007 for the blast at Mecca Masjid in Hyderabad. He spent a year-and-half in jail before being acquitted.
