New Yorkers Say “No”

Tens of thousands attended the Rally of Remembrance for the 9/11 victims and against the Ground Zero mega-mosque to mark the ninth anniversary of the destruction of World Trade Center by 19 Islamic fundamentalists from Saudi Arabia. Pamela Geller of “Stop Islamisation of America” (SIOA), a dynamic columnist and a blogger, and the main organizer of the Rally of Remembrance wrote about the rally in the following glowing terms. “The crowd was so large, it stretched as far as the eye could see; you could not see the horizon from our stage.” (

The Rally was hosted by The human rights organization Freedom Defense Initiative (FDI) and Robert Spencer of Stop Islamization of America (SIOA) against the Ground Zero mega-mosque, on September 11th in New York.

Videos of the speakers who appeared at the Rally of Remembrance are available on the following link:

Narain Kataria, President Indian American Intellectuals Forum (IAIF) and one of the Founder of Human Rights Coalition Against Radical Islam along with Arish Sahani, VP of IAIF; Satya Dosapati of Hindu Human Rights and Bhupinder Singh Bhurji of Namdhari Sikh Foundation of USA fully supported the Rally of Remembrance and brought about 200 American Hindus to this Rally.

About fifty American Christians of Pakistani origin from Lahore stood shoulder to shoulder with American Hindus and shouted slogans against the construction of mega-mosque at Ground Zero.

A couple of days before the Rally, one Youtube video in three parts (19 minutes) titled “American Hindus Say ‘No’ to the Ground Zero Mosque” was produced by Narain Kataria and circulated by Jihad Watch. That youtube video has been seen by 7500 people in 7 says.

In the above hart hitting Youtube, Kataria blamed Imam Rauf for trying to establish Sharia law (Islamic law) in this country and indirectly supporting terrorism. Kataria further said that the terrorists who killed 3000 Americans and hundreds of other innocent people in Mumbai, Godhra, Delhi, Mali, Beslan, Madrid, London and other cities of the world had also been trained in radical Islamists mosques.

Satya Dosapati was slated to speak on behalf of American Hindus on the occasion but could not speak due to lack of time. His speech was videoed and sent to the Director of Jihad Watch and has been put on his website. Some excerpts from his speech are given below:

“We need to wake up and understand the threat of Islam to our country, our civilization and everything we have built our society upon. Let us not condemn our own children to relive the barbaric history.”

“However, I do not blame Muslims. I dislike the ideology of hate and intolerance. Just look at Saudi Arabia where Koran is the constitution. They teach their little children from Koran that Christians and Jews are pigs, Hindus are worse than animals, infidels are equivalent to urine, feces, and dead body.”

“Secondly, in order to win this war, you have to confront this ideology of hate. According to the Center for Study of Political Islam, 60% of Koran is political, and 19% of Koran is about violent Jihad. 75% Sira, the life of Prophet is about violent Jihad, not inner Jihad. We got to understand that Islam is both - religion and political system - with strict rules for everything in life under the oppressive Sharia and extreme intolerance and violence against infidels”
