:If a donkey kicks you, do you kick it back ? Kamlesh Tewari,

a resident of Sitapur and a man listed as 'working President' in the Hindu Mahasabha website, issued a press note on December 3 declaring that the first homosexual in the world was the Prophet Mohammed.
 Many Muslims and groups have demanded death for Tewari. http://www.sify.com/news/why-are-muslims-demanding-death-for-kamlesh-tewari-news-columns-pmojznhgjdcji.html
  Tewari's statement was of course deliberatively prococative, but what should be the reaction of Muslims ?
 I submit that the rational reaction would be to completely ignore it. Reacting to it only adds grist to the mill of the mischief mongers, who deliberately want to incite communal tensions, and that is precisely what they want. So if you react to it you are only playing into their hands.
 So just ignore it.
 When Mirza Ghalib, the great Urdu poet, was told that some people have unjustly criticized him, so why was he remaining silent, he replied : ":If a donkey kicks you, do you kick it back ? "
