There were deadlier, real-life costs to pay for this abrasive truth-telling. Sita Ram Goel was arrested for the same reason: writing the naked truth about the Islamic creed.
His publishing house, Voice of India had printed an innocuously titled work, Understanding Islam through Hadis, a brilliant work of insightful scholarship authored by Ram Swarup. Quite obviously, the brazen arrest was targeted political harassment by a seemingly invincible Congress Party at the zenith of its despotism. So invincible that it was permanently held hostage in the rabid fist of the worst of the bigoted Muslim clergy. Today it might sound unbelievable to learn that this was a time when toxic Islamic weeklies like Radiance, the mouthpiece of the fanatical Jamat-e-Islami could and did hold the entire Delhi Administration hostage, and brought it down to its knees through unabashed bullying to the extent that the Delhi Government transgressed even Court orders which had acquitted Sita Ram Goel. Guess who had graced the editorial board of Radiance? Former Prime Minister Inder Kumar Gujral, the arch pervert, Khushwant Singh and Indira Gandhi’s stooge, P.N. Haksar.
Undaunted, Sita Ram Goel went ahead and published an even more audacious work, the classic Calcutta Quran Petition. It was a direct challenge to what Goel diagnosed as a grave threat to freedom in India and especially to the safety and survival of the Hindu society: in his own words, "Islam imposes an Emergency on India." Along with a friend Chandmal Chopra and a few others, he decided to pay back in the same coin: using the same provisions of the Indian Penal Code, which the Islamists and their secular appeasers routinely used to get inconvenient books, films, and other material banned.
Accordingly, Chandmal Chopra and his associates filed a petition to ban the Quran under the provisions of Sections 153A and 295A of the IPC and Section 95 of the CrPC. Although the origins of the petition were in Calcutta, the spooked Congress Government at the Centre made itself a party to the case and unleashed a fresh round of hounding Goel who was forced to abscond to avoid arrest.
A more lionhearted, real-life example of Kshatra is hard to find in an "independent" India that was still reeling under the twin-emasculations of Gandhian stupor and Nehruvian tyranny.
It is unnecessary to provide more details of the Calcutta Quran Petition whose full text is available online. A fine review of the work by the late scholar Dr. N.S. Rajaram is also recommended.
