2012: A personal note



“Undo it, take it back, make every day the previous one until I am returned to the day before the one that made you go. Or set me on an airplane traveling west, crossing the date line again and again, losing this day, then that, until the day of loss still lies ahead, and you are here instead of sorrow.”
Nessa Rapoport

If I could’ve helped, I’d rather not have had 2012 in my life. I lost in the god-forsaken year a dear and respected guru, CK Arora, my dog Bruno and a friend whom I cannot name but who perhaps has moved on.

Life’s lived in chapters. The protagonists change incessantly. People around who revolves our world aren’t suddenly there. At times it’s the work of destiny and at times our own doing.

CK died in faraway Washington where he taught Hindi to American diplomats after a long and distinguished stint as a journalist. Many years ago, we used to work together in the United News of India; me a young entrant and him a veteran already. One day I was told that I was being shifted out of the desk job to field reporting. Such breaks weren’t commonplace those days.

There was no end to my happiness. I was on cloud nine.

It was many years later that I got to know that CK was the one who recommended me for the reporting job. He watched me from a distance and felt that I did well in the field work I was intermittently assigned as a desk person. The beauty of it all was that he promoted me on the quiet with the higher editorial management. He wasn’t looking for a groupie. He simply felt my transfer will add value to the reporting unit.

Such special edition men aren’t made in God’s factory anymore. Our generation owed so much to their professionalism and generosity. In CK’s passing away I lost a friend and a patron. RIP CK Saab; shall miss you always.

Bruno was a blue blooded Labrador. He was bequeathed to us by my late son who got him as part of a conspiracy he hatched with my wife and daughter. I was of the view that my apartment was too small for farm dogs that Labradors are. My son silenced me by getting Bruno as a gift to his sister on her birthday.

Bruno, 11, followed my son about seven years after his death in a road accident. We had to put him to sleep on the doctor’s advice after he was diagnosed for throat cancer. We sent him off on the morning after Diwali.

He ate despite his throat a few pieces of kaaju burfi on the Diwali night. I miss him all the while. The flicker in his eyes after the killer intravenous injection will stay with me forever. RIP Bruno. Play in the heavens with my son and your elder Bro!

The story of the friend who has moved on is surmised by the adage “friendship’s like a china bowl, precious costly ware, if once broken can be mended again, but the crack is always there.”

Dear 2012, why couldn’t you leave us alone? Hope 2013 will help fill up the crack.

    ———————————————————————————————————
    Now this is a very different Vinod Sharma wrtiting this blog. And this is t
    he best side of him. Getting emotion and nostaligia inot his writing.

    Yes my sympathy for Vinod Sharma on the loss of his son. I hope he does someday come to terms with the sense of loss one day.

    As for his dog..

    I too had a labrador once… and I know how it is to lose a dog. I now have a crossbred Indian desi kutta called Genius… who found me by entering my house umpteen no of times…

    And my potential father in law too has a black lab… called Bruno. This Bruno has only distinguished himself by diggin his teeth into my trousers, twice when I have gone to pick up his malkin….

    Let us hope that the new year is better for all of us . And hopefully some of the burning issues which make our society so hatefull and violent get resolved.

    Cheers!

    Dear Vinodji;
    Was surprised/happy to know your soft side. I believe, I have heard about Mr. Arora. he was a celebrity on his own right, amongst Indian Americans. He was a good host too.
    I think of my father, who was offered a salary of something like, a princely sum of Rs. 400/ per month for a major english paper in Lahore, some time in late thirties or so. many of his contemporaries later, shifted to Delhi and one Mr. Kapoor(Arora??) was an editor of HT also. Anyway, I have heard about Mr. Arora.
    Your second love was Bruno, I tremble to visualize separation from my dog, which will happen eventually, I know, being a dog lover myself.
    And lost a friend, HOD of a surgery department in India, who died comparatively young, a gem of a person. lastly, this rape and murder. Do not feel like saying Happy New year as I am not happy.

    Dear Vinodji,

    Nice to read something completely different from what you regularly write.
    I can understand what you must be going through at the losses of
    your dear ones. I don’t have a dog, but my younger son has been requesting/nagging/pestering us to get him a dog, but my elder son son and
    my wife are against this idea.
    Cheers and have a good new year.

    let us hope 2013 will be a good year for humanity… much sorrow and blood happened in 2012. wars did not end; men started new wars in 2012. come to think of it, what has really changed in this continuum of time – nothing; wars, killings, suppression, mighty against the weak….as it happened for centuries and centuries..
    Then, as now, hope is eternal.

    Here in the US, men in the senate and house are fighting on “fiscal cliff” – republicans blocking a bill that will give benefits to 98% of the people. They have been fighting for years; it will be a major fiasco worldwide if an agreement is not made before the midnight,

    An interesting debate is ongoing inTOI regarding gun licenses. we discussed this only couple of days back.

    Delhi women gun for licences; rape triggers big rush to acquire arms
    Delhi women gun for licences; rape triggers big rush to acquire arms

    Delhi Police sources say -hundreds more had turned up at their office itself. “We had to patiently tell them that one needs to have a clear danger to one’s life to be given a licence. However, some of the parents were not happy with our replies. They said that with even public transport no longer safe in the city, they just cannot take chances. When we told them this could not be reason enough, we were told to give in writing that their daughters were indeed safe on Delhi’s roads,” said a source.
    Now, with law and order, even in delhi is so dismal, does this need to have a gun, wrong one?? do not know. This can be debated.

    It is futile to get angry. Still there is time, Muslims should come out of this time wrap, put their energy in modern education and get their place under the sun. Muslim community will continue to suffer as long as it sticks to venal muslim leaders and others such. They will continued to be exploited. I will sincerely advise, them to take a Muslim Bania, as their leader, because these people may be somewhat constructive and can lead this community forward. Stop expecting doles and other crumbs, just because you are a Muslim.

    A message from Bruno,

    “I was loyal to you becasue I was a dog. You are however a human being with faculty of choice and descrimination. So please use it and do not be loyal as dogs. Call a spade a spade. Please stop being loyal to those who cannot communicate with the aam admi and aurat let alone understand them.” Will you?

    Very well said. Dogs are still better as they stick to one master and materialism plays no role in their loyalty. Master to them is everything as they have limited faculties to understand the complexities of this world whereas for humans god has endowed us with the power to be honest/rational and when people negate the virtue of this power they are not only polluting their environment but on a larger scale the country as a whole. I know Mr Vinod Sharma is proud to have Bruno as his trusted and loyal companion for a long-time, alas Mr Sharma is as well to his country (India) and its people (Indians).

    Mr Bhukkal

    Thank you for providing the link to a Blog, which ostensibly
    tells us the truth about SONIA GANDHI.

    I found it fascinating to say the least, here is why?

    1. It shows official documents which would have
    been quite difficult to obtain, in the light of the fact that they would have been protected by the Data Protection Act. However, I am very mindful of how resourceful Indians are. So now we know that Sonia is not educated beyond school certificate. In that regards she is in good company because most other politicians in India are also semi-literate.

    2. I found it extremely difficult to understand why this blog did not SHOW Sonia’s papers she filed before her election from Rae Bareli. After all such documents should be easily available, considering they are in public domain. So you see difficult to obtain documents are on display but publically available documents are not included.

    3. More importantly, despite her foreign origin, modest educational achievement, she still managed to beat the shit out of the BJP in the last two elections. How could that be possible?

    4. I can go on, but I am now bored.

    [Reply]

    Har Gobind Bhukkal Reply:

    Thanks for your reply Mr Ravi. As to number 3 of your reply – Queen Maino’s gang has looted billions of dollars from Indian public and a small part of this loot they use to buy Judiciary/Bureaucrats (on permanant payroll of Queen Maino’s gang) and large number of poor people/ minority during election are given cash handouts to vote in their favour. This dirty weed has destroyed the foundation of our country and will in next few years make it next Somalia/Syria.

    I can also go on and on but feel that it’s outside your understanding as you don’t want to hear otherwise.

    To Sachin, from Pakistan with love…

    January 1st, 2013 | 2
    Comments

    By Ghazala Akbar:

    If Indian cricket were officially declared a religion, this
    would be its Mantra:
    ‘There is no God but cricket and the Messiah is Sachin
    at the wicket!’
    Devotees of Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar will probably go a step
    further. He is no mere
    mortal, they will say. He is a Demi – God, a Deva.
    Monotheists, privileged to see him play are inclined to agree somewhat. If not a
    deity, he is certainly divinely-inspired, a man who uses his God-given talent to
    perform jaw-dropping miracles that are simply
    out of this world.

    We, in Pakistan should know. The first of his batting ‘miracles’ began in
    Peshawar
    in 1989. Consider the scene: an ODI is reduced to twenty-overs
    because of bad light.
    The match is re-designated as an unofficial ‘friendly’.
    But no encounter between the
    two sub-continental rivals can ever ensue
    without an edge or a twist. Pakistan posts
    a formidable157. The Indians are
    way behind the target when a diminutive, cherubic, Krishna-like kid comes out to
    bat. He is just a bit taller than the bat he is wielding.

    The crowd jeers. The Pakistani players giggle. A16-year-old against the wily
    Abdul Qadir? No contest. The boy takes guard. Qadir characteristically licks his
    spinning
    finger, takes a step backward, then forward. Give him some milk and
    put the lad out
    of his misery, somebody remarks raucously. The boy is silent.
    He lets his bat do the talking. 6-0-4-6-6-6! He scores 53 of 18 balls. All
    present realise they are witnessing something special. The Sachin Tendulkar show
    officially hits the road.

    Soon the feats of the flashing blade go global, earning him fame, fortune and
    the grudging respect of many a strong opposition. The measure of his reputation
    can be judged by the value they put on his dismissal. His is the prized scalp,
    the feather in
    every bowler’s cap. The resume isn’t quite complete; you
    haven’t truly arrived, until there is S. R. Tendulkar against your name.

    Wherever he comes in to bat, the likes of McGrath, Warne, Walsh, Ambrose,
    Gough, Caddick, Waqar, Shoaib, Donald, Pollock, Ntini, Vaas, et al huddle with
    their advisers. They plan, they plot. Surely there are weaknesses they can
    exploit. Theories are put to the test. Fields are set. Sometimes they get lucky.
    Very often not. A few silken cover drives,
    a leg-glance here and a straight
    drive there, they are scratching heads again: is there a plan B against this
    fellow?

    In a career spanning twenty-three years, it is hard to remember a special
    innings. There are so many. But for me, (no cricketing historian) three stand
    out tall: Chennai 1999. Sachin Tendulkar versus Pakistan. At 82 for 5, chasing
    270 on a crumbling pitch he digs in deep. Swing, spin, they try everything. He
    will not be tempted. He accumulates 136 playing a marathon 91of the 95 overs
    they bowl. When he leaves, they fold. Pakistan wins… but only just. He has
    reduced the margin to 12 runs. Most of us have few nails left to chew.

    Then there was the innings, I nearly missed. India versus South Africa,
    Durban 1997. Batting second after a mammoth 500 plus, it was time to change
    channels at 53 for 5.
    Lucky, I didn’t. Sachin and his captain, Mohammed
    Azharuddin began a calculated counter-attack. Shock and Awe. Alternating
    elegance with controlled aggression, he matched Azharuddin, shot for shot. It
    was like Ravi Shankar and Ali Akbar Khan involved in a ‘jugalbandi’.Who was the
    soloist, who was the accompanist, one really didn’t know! After Azhar departed,
    he continued to play — the last man out and the follow-on saved.

    Fast forward to Gwalior 2010. On a hot humid evening, he is a man possessed.
    Where younger men wilt, he belies his age of 35 years. Cricket fans have waited
    40 years for this moment: the first double-hundred in a one-day
    international.100 of those runs are in boundaries alone. Manna from Heaven. It
    isn’t Zimbabwe, it isn’t even Kenya. It’s the mighty South Africa who is the
    hapless opponent. At an age when most of his contemporaries are hanging their
    boots, checking their blood pressure, he is walking on water or turning it into
    wine.

    I’m not being facetious, I’m not being flippant but perhaps my most memorable
    Sachin moment is the time he got a rare golden duck. Rewind to Calcutta 1999.
    India is sitting pretty at 150 for two. Rahul Dravid has just had his leg stump
    uprooted but the crowd doesn’t care. Sachin is next. The applause can be heard
    as far as Lahore. Then disaster strikes. The young Shoaib Akhtar shatters his
    middle stump. 100,000 adoring fans are stunned into silence. As Sachin walks
    back, he nods at the bowler, acknowledging his success. The gesture says it all.
    Even in adversity, he is gracious, a class-act.

    Fast forward to the fourth innings. India is battling hard to win the match.
    At a crucial moment, against the run of play, Sachin is run out, in a freakish
    sort of way. The fielder, (Shoaib again!) inadvertently stands his ground. They
    collide. Sachin makes it into the crease but the collision has caused his bat to
    hang precariously, inches from the ground. The throw from the deep crashes into
    the stumps. He is out on a technicality. He doesn’t
    rant or rave, just
    accepts the decision with equanimity and grace.

    The Bengali crowd is enraged. Deliberate obstruction, they scream. The
    Umpires take no notice. Stones and bottles are hurled. Play is halted. The riot
    police get ready to escort the Pakistanis out of the ground. It’s getting uglier
    by the minute. The crowd is turning into a mob baying for blood. Enter Sachin.
    He walks round the ground and calms everyone down. They listen and obey. He has
    power and charisma that politicians envy. Not even Jyoti Basu, the octogenarian
    Chief Minister of West Bengal commands such respect.

    Is it any wonder that Pakistanis have a love-hate relationship with this man!
    So many of his runs came against us, we are entitled to a volcanic eruption
    seeing the back of him, at last. How can we forget the way he decimated Shoaib
    at the World Cup in 2003! Made a 300 plus total look as if it was only 30!
    Spoilsport! But deep down, we respect, admire and yes…even love him… simply
    because he is so infuriatingly good at what he does. We love him because there’s
    no hint of swagger or arrogance. Even when he is putting his opponents to the
    sword, he is a smiling assassin.

    We love him because as South Asians we can share in his reflected glory, bask
    in his success. He’s a son of the soil. He’s the genius next door, whose exam
    results make the neighbours proud. In summing him up, the breadth of his talent
    and the scale of his achievements must override and outweigh any narrow,
    pettifogging chauvinistic bias. Like the other prodigious Maharashtran, Lata
    Mangeshkar, their winsome winning ways spill over borders, erode hardened
    boundaries and find their way in, melting and opening up hearts and minds. Happy
    semi-retirement Sachin. You are always a treat to watch. This is from a
    Pakistani, with thanks and with love

    Quran does not encourage polygamy: Court

    http://blogs.hindustantimes.com/separated-at-birth/2012/12/31/2012-a-personal-note/

    NEW DELHI: The Holy Quran permits a Muslim man to marry more than one woman at a time but does not encourage such behaviour, a trial court has observed.

    The court made these comments while denying anticipatory bail to a maulvi, who is accused of performing a girl’s marriage forcibly with a married man, and added that the Sharia law allows polygamy but only under special circumstances.

    “I may observe that even in countries governed by Sharia (Islamic) law, the second marriage is permitted under special circumstances such as an illness of the first wife or her inability to bear children. In these cases, with the first wife’s consent, a man may marry again and this is referred to as polygamy, a subset of polygamous marriages. The Holy Quran permits a Muslim man to marry more than one woman at a time (up to a maximum of four), but does not encourage such behaviour,” additional sessions judge Kamini Lau said while dismissing the arguments of Maulvi Mustafa Raja of Delhi, who said that as per Sharia law, a man is allowed to keep four wives at a time.

    In its order, the court said that the practice of polygamy has been regulated or abolished in many Muslim states/nations and it cannot be encouraged in a liberal democracy like India. “In the secular states of the Muslim world such as Turkey and Tunisia, polygamy is illegal in any form. Even in the nations where it is permitted, polygamy is only practised by a small minority.”

    The judge also observed that polygamy is permissible in Sharia law “as a part of social duty and charitable motives or when it seeks to prevent destitution.”

    It said polygamy is only permitted in certain circumstances, including when the husband’s death has left his wife with no other means of support.

    According to the police, Raja had forcibly got the girl married with accused Nadeem Khan last year without her consent and also in her parents’ absence and that the victim was raped by her alleged husband.

    Shashi Tharoor has suggested that the new rape law should be named after the brave heart young girl. He should be severely reprimanded for this or better he should be removed from the party for suggesting this nonsense. Is he not aware of the fact that any new scheme, programme or law which are always for the benefit for we poor Indians are only supposed to be named after the member of a Gandhi family.

    “SC upholds Gujarat Governor’s choice Justice R A Mehta as Lokayukta”
    =========================================================

    The bench said that the Governor is bound to act under the advice of the
    Council of Ministers, but the appointment of Justice Mehta is right as it was
    done in consultation with the Chief Justice of the Gujarat High Court.

    I have read it multiple times and still not able to understand the observation made by the learned judge.

    This is what happens when the judges start interpreting the law based on their political allegiances.

    This is the basic rule of our federal constitution – the governor MUST act on the advise of the council of ministers headed by the Chief Minister of the state. The same rule is extended to the President of the country. In the present case, it didn’t happen and that’s why the case reached the SC. The judges for sure chose to ignore this.

    I wonder how would the judges react if Mr. Pranab Mukherji were to act on his own and make some appointments without consulting the incumbent PM.

    A group of powerful people has become very uncomfortable at the thought Modi becoming PM of India and they are leaving no stone unturned to stop him. I won’t be surprised that this Lokatyukta will come up ’serious’ charges of corruption against Modi government. This year also Modi will be the main person discussed by our media, not as a anti Muslim person, because that has failed, but as a corrupt man.

    The BJP has been tricked once in case of Yeddyuruppa in Karnataka. He was made to resign, in the process weakening the party in the state.

    Similar or worse charges were there against many across various parties and they didn’t do a thing about it.

    The party would do well to shoo-off the Lokayukta’s report as done by the Delhi CM and move on without making it an issue.

    This is a very strange judgement by SC.

    This is what the bench has observed :

    “The present Governor has misjudged her role and has insisted, that under the Act, the Council of Ministers has no role to play in the appointment of the Lokayukta, and that she could therefore, fill it up in consultation with the Chief Justice of the Gujarat HC and the Leader of Opposition. Such attitude is not in conformity, or in consonance with the democratic set up of government envisaged in our Constitution,” the bench said.

    “The Governor consulted the Attorney General for legal advice, and communicated with the Chief Justice of the Gujarat HC directly, without taking into confidence, the Council of Ministers. In this respect, she was wrongly advised to the effect that she had to act as a statutory authority and not as the Head of the State,” the bench said.

    In spite of the above observation the appointment has been
    termed legal by the court.

    One of the blogger on another website has this to say about this judgement.

    ” This is a really strange judgment. Is it the position of the Supreme Court that consulting with the Chief Justice of the Gujarat HC is equivalent to consulting the Gujarat council of ministers? So is the governer free to choose whom to consult – the CoM or the Chief Justice? Will the Chief Justice now have a say in matters of administration as and when the governer sees fit? This judgment appears to set a very dangerous precedent and is bound to create confusion at the very least but more likely constitutional crises. Can anyone doubt that this will encourage Governers to become more active in serving their political masters. What the hell is the Indian supreme court up to?”

    the supreme court has side-stepped the constitutional position, the main plank of the Modi government, that the governor has no executive power except that which comes from recommendations of the council of ministers or from consultations with the council of ministers.

    In this particular instance, the SC has also overlooked the prime requirement of the job of the Lakayukta, which is impartiality. The candidate appointed by the governor is already compromised in his beliefs and attitude.

    If we goa little beyond, the servile attitude of the judges of our supreme court was responsible for the judgement upholding the imposition of emergency.

    Yes, 2012 did not end in high. But looking out for seeds of hope.

    Bal Thackeray: I am always of the opinion, pro something need not be anti something else. Hidutva is not about Islam bashing, Indian Patriotism is not exactly Pakistan bashing (vice versa), pro Dalit is not the same as Brahmin bashing. But for some leaders, they were same. They thought of strengthening a society by using hatred as a tool. There is a difference between Periyar and Ambedkar. Both were interested in upliftment of backward community. For the first, the route was exclusion of forward community. For the other, it was rising the education and self respect of the backward community. Thackeray’s five decades of struggle against south Indians, Muslims, Biharis, UP Bhaiyas lacked just one thing. A positive conviction about upliftment of Marati Manoos. Apart from erection of Shivaji statues in chowk, roads renamed in his name, we never really understood what his vision towards betterment of Mumbai was (like increase of industries and better employment opportunities). Hope, the era of exclusion will follow him.
    Decades ago one would have never dreamt, a party inspired from Periyar can have a Brahmin president. Will Shivsena be able to have a Muslim president in future? Never say never.

    Ten years since it happened, but not erased from our memory. A coach caught fire. All the passengers inside were burnt alive. The riots which started, took away thousands of lives. Media reminded us again last year, how the man sitting at the CM post never apologised. ( Days ago, we saw Sheela Dixit and Jaya Bachchan with tears expressing their grieves over the unfortunate incident). But the man in the debate never did that. He continued his silence. Gujarat spoke for the third time. Remorse need not be expressed in words alone. Modi’s win was not a Hindu or Muslim win. It is was a victory of collective growth.

    A new party was born out of frustration over current political class. I suppose, the seats it can win in 2014 will be in single digits. But few decades later we might look back and say, here was the beginning.

    Happy new year friends.

    Saudi Religious Leader Encourages Gang Rape Of Syrian Women

    The cleric, Muhammed al-Arifi, who is a leading jihadist religious figure, made it clear that his edict called for the gang rape of Syrian women and girls. He specified that the “intercourse marriages” last only a few hours “in order to give each fighter a turn.” As to who is an eligible bride, the cleric approves any girls or women over the age of 14 who are widowed or divorced. Yes, you read that right. Any girls over the age of 14.

    Saudi Arabia has been influencing and funding the Syrian revolution for nearly a year now—although this fatwa is the first explicit time that rape as a tool of war has been proposed as part of the opposition’s military strategy. Since at least April 2, 2012, Saudi Arabia and Qatar have been paying salaries to the Syrian forces fighting against President Bashar al-Assad and his army. Saudi Arabia has also been sending weapons, including portable anti-aircraft missiles, to the Free Syrian Army.

    SC has muddied the waters in Gujarat Lokayukta case

    http://www.firstpost.com/india/sc-has-muddied-the-waters-in-gujarat-lokayukta-case-576779.html

    Excerpts.

    Was there a consultation process? Let us look at the facts of this
    appointment process:

    - Three years after the resignation of the former Lokayukta in
    November 2003, Modi sent a letter to CJ recommending Justice KR Vyas. CJ
    approved Justice Vyas’s name and Modi sent the file to the Governor for issuing
    necessary appointment orders.

    - This file remained pending for three years. In the meanwhile,
    Justice Vyas took up another post as a result of which the Governor’s office
    requested the CJ to suggest a panel of names. Modi did that too.

    - After receiving four recommended names, Modi made attempts to
    consult the LOP. The LOP responded back saying that the Governor had already
    initiated the process of consultation and that Modi and the Council of Ministers
    had no right to embark on this constitutional process. The Governor, Kamla
    Beniwal, did not think it proper to consult with Modi either.

    - In the meanwhile, the Council of Ministers approved one of the
    four names (Justice JR Vora) and sent the file to the Governor. She refused to
    pass any orders. In fact, she sought the opinion of the Attorney General of
    India. She herself asked the CJ on who would be a better choice between Justice
    RP Dholakia and Justice Vora.

    - The CJ wrote back stating that Justice Dholakia would be the more
    appropriate choice. However, the Governor still did not issue a letter of
    appointment and again requested the CJ to recommend only one name. To which the
    CJ recommended the name of Justice SD Dave. The CJ also wrote to Modi
    recommending Justice SD Dave.

    - As one shall observe, a parallel ‘consultation’ was going on
    between the CJ, on the one hand, and Modi and Governor on the other. Modi wrote
    back to the CJ requesting appointment of Justice Vora since the consultation
    process concerning his name had already been gone through.

    - All of a sudden, in June 2011, the CJ recommended Justice RA Mehta
    to the Governor as well as Modi. This is the first time Justice Mehta’s name
    came up. The Governor, who otherwise took her own time in this process,
    asked Modi to expedite the process for appointing Justice Mehta on the same day.
    Modi wrote a letter objecting to Justice Mehta’s recommendation on grounds of
    his age and bias against Modi government.

    - In August 2011, the Leader of the Opposition told Modi that he
    approved Justice Mehta’s name and, soon thereafter, the Governor issued the
    requisite warrant appointing Justice Mehta as the Lokayukta notwithstanding
    Modi’s objections – all in two months.

    - In yesterday’s judgment, Supreme Court holds that the consultative
    process, which went on for a mere two months, was complete at this stage as
    there was “nothing left for the consultees to do/discuss”.

    Rape Country, Bidar – Karnataka : 5-year-old rape victim from Bidar district
    of Karnataka, was admitted to Niloufer Hospital after being sexually assaulted
    by a neighbour.

    The 5-year old girl was raped on December 17, a day after the sensational
    Delhi GANG-Rape incident (Hindutva Chivalry Workout), at her home in a remote
    village of BHALKI Mandal, 40 kilometres away from the district headquarters. She
    was referred to the Niloufer Hospital after doctors at Bidar failed to stop the
    bleeding.

    According to Discharge Card given to girl’s mother, there were possibilities
    of the 5-YR OLD girl developing recto-vaginal fistula, in which case, the girl
    would have to be brought back to the hospital.

    Doctors at Niloufer said that the girl’s condition was stable, and further
    stay in hospital could lead to infections.

    However, the parents of the girl were far from satisfied. The girl was going
    through severe pain while passing stools, and there was trace of blood in her
    urine, her mother complained. She expressed her wish to have the girl admitted
    to a private hospital, and take her home only after she recovers fully… (but
    money ! Ah !)

    “We stay in the interior parts of Bidar, and it would be very difficult for
    us to come all the way till here in case of complications,” she said.

    “The girl identified a person by the name RAGHUVEER (note the name) as the
    attacker, who was initially interrogated by the police. He divulged the name of
    another person, DAYANAND (note the name). The police arrested the latter, and
    released the former.. THE MAIN CULPRIT named by the girl. WOAW. WHY ? Because
    Raghuveer is a member of RSS/BJP ! And BJP rules Karnataka.

    Simple. Now who will invest in Karnataka.. Delhi.. INDIA.. The Rape Country
    ?

    The Indian author Sonia Felerio’s op-ed in NYTimes about the Delhi rape:

    http://www.nytimes.com/2013/01/02/opinion/the-unspeakable-truth-about-rape-in-india.html?_r=0

    She says Delhi was dangerous for girls/women even 10-15 years ago when she was a student there. She talks about strategies and tactics she and her friends used to follow in case they faced a potential rapist. She says she never felt that way in Mumbai; and although Mumbai is a larger city she says the number of rapes in Mumbai is much less.

    Although rape happens all over, why is it so high in Delhi? I think it does not have to do with migration to Delhi by people from adjoining states, If so, Mumbai has even larger migration from the south, north, east.

    A blogger from Delhi (Vijay, Vinoo etc) may be able to answer the Delhi specific scenario.

    AP leads by a huge margin among southern states ( may still be lesser than Delhi). Part of the reason is that AP mostly has only two classes – the ruled and the ruler. It is still quite feudalistic, unlike the other southern states. , there are lots of cases relating to the powerful raping/killing the powerless.

    There were several cases where the kins of ministers were involved; but none of them got prosecuted.

    Very few cases here are like the ones in Delhiw where the “ordinary” (powerless in a normal sense) guys go after a “city” girl.

    Anonymous Reply:

    I am also from Delhi – migrated some 15 yrs back from Jharkhand.

    Let me attempt to answer your queries.

    To begin with let’s classify rapes into two:
    a) by individuals, and
    b) gang-rapes.

    Now, in over 90% cases of rape by the individuals, the victims are known to the accused/culprits. These people could be close family members, tutors/teachers, friends, neighbours, uncles, etc. At times, these are by consent to begin with and then reported as rape later for various reasons. At other times, human weakness muddies the sense of right and wrong and such (shameful) incidence happens. By nature, human errs and most likely the same person would not indulge in a similar act at a later time and in a different situation.

    In case of gang rapes, the culprits are either mostly too rich (neo-rich) or too poor. These rich kids, thanks to their newly acquired wealth obtained by the sale of land/farms in Delhi-NCR, can’t stand the sight of some girls going around with boys who earn 20-30K per month. They wonder why couldn’t they get hold of such girls despite having a thousand times more money. Now, there is a big difference in the life style of these young kids and the kind of girls they aspire. This eventually leads them into getting into such a heinous crime in company of other similar people. There have also been incidences when gang-rape was committed as a revenge following a family dispute. The poor ones who are mostly migrants from other states and work as labourers, drivers, fruit-vegetable sellers, etc have similar feelings but there is no way they can find a girl they see around them everyday. They indulge in such crimes to satisfy their lust. We must understand that the desire for sex outside of marriage is one of the human weaknesses along with telling lies, stealing, being rude and careless etc. when not being watched or when there is no fear of getting caught.

    I haven’t got a clue how to fix the first set of rapes – probably a higher moral education at home/school might help – but in case of gang-rapes, alcohol (!!!) – yes alcohol – plays a big role. Under its influence a number of people (not all) lose the sense of right and wrong.

    In numerous discussions over this issue across forums, I have never seen anyone talking about the role of liquor in these crimes. Both the media and the government are too shy to even talk about it for obvious reasons.

    Well drafted.

    One big reason is sexual desire with no way to release it. People who are rapists in cases as the one which shook up Delhi, aspire to hang around with girls they can never otherwise meet.

    In personal life they would have very different standards for interaction of their own sisters with men.

    The easy availibility of porn and liquor– yet no avenue of sex lights ups a mad fire.

    Then they know that India’s police is lax, the justice system screwed and most of all the lawyers are corrupt– so everythign can be fixed.

    Absolutely. As they rightly say:

    Sex is like air. Its no big deal unless you are not getting any.

    Rapes occur in India, not Bharat: RSS supremo Bhagwat

    http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/india/Rapes-occur-in-India-not-Bharat-RSS-supremo-Bhagwat/articleshow/17880248.cms

    SILCHAR: RSS supremo Mohanrao Bhagwat criticized ‘western’ lifestyle of people in urban areas and said, without empirical evidence to back such a claim, that rape is prevalent mainly in cities where Indians are deeply influenced by western values and not by rural India. Various women’s NGOs and even police records suggest rapes in rural areas largely go unreported.

    Addressing a citizens’ meet here on Tuesday during his four-day visit to Silchar, Bhagwat said, “Such crimes hardly take place in ‘Bharat’, but they occur frequently in ‘India’.

    “You go to villages and forests of the country and there will be no such incidents of gang-rape or sex crimes. They are prevalent in some urban belts. Besides new legislations, Indian ethos and attitude towards women should be revisited in the context of ancient Indian values,” Bhagwat said.

    Besides new legislations, Indian ethos and attitude towards women should be revisited in the context of ancient Indian values,”

    Here are some ancient Hindu Values..

    +++

    According to theManusmriti, women have no right to education, independence, or wealth (n.pag).

    It not only justifies the treatment of dalit women as a sex object and promotes

    child marriage, but also justifies a number of violent atrocities on women as can be seen in the following verses (Agarwal; Manusmitri):

    A man, aged thirty years, shall marry a maiden of twelve who pleases

    him. Or a man of twenty-four a girl of eight years of age. If (the performance of) his duties would otherwise be impeded, he must marry sooner. (Manusmitri IX.94)

    By a girl, by a young woman, or even by an aged one, nothing must be

    done independently, even in her own house.” (Manusmriti V.147)

    Her father protects (her) in childhood, her husband protects (her) in youth, and her sons protect (her) in old age; a woman is never fit for independence. (Manusmriti IX.3)

    Women have no right to study the Vedas. That is why their Sanskaras

    are performed without Veda Mantras. Women have no knowledge of

    religion because they have no right to know the Vedas. The uttering of

    the Veda Mantras is useful for removing sin. As women cannot utter the Veda Mantras, they are as unclean as the untruth. (Manusmriti IX.18)

    A Brahman, Kshatriya, or Vaishya Man can sexually exploit any shudra Woman. (Manusmitri IX.25)

    Iran Bans Flights During Call to Islamic Prayer

    Iran has ordered domestic airlines to take off half an hour after pre-dawn Muslim prayers, the website of country’s civil aviation organization quoted its chief as saying on Wednesday.

    “According to a directive we issued to the domestic airlines, from now on the airlines will be authorized to take off at least 30 minutes after the morning Azan (the pre-dawn call to prayer),”said civil aviation chief Hamid Reza Pahlevani, as reported by AFP.

    He said the decision was taken “so that passengers can fulfill their religious duty of prayer.”

    Iran has practiced Islamic sharia law since its 1979 Islamic revolution. Iranian carriers do not serve alcoholic beverages nor non-halal food on either domestic or international flights.

    On long-haul flights, in-cabin monitors also show the direction of Mecca, to which Muslims turn during times of prayer.

    Pahlevani also reiterated the requirement that all flight crew and ground personnel observe the Islamic dress code.

    On Iranian airlines, all air hostesses wear headscarves and long coats, and air stewards do not wear ties as they are deemed a symbol of Western culture, AFP reported.

    All women in Iran beyond the age of puberty, regardless of their nationality or religion, are required to cover their hair and much of the body. Those who do not abide by the dress code risk arrest.

    Gallup, The American Institute of Public Opinion,
    conducted a study to find out which country had the happiest citizens. The
    survey results were striking as it was discovered that citizens of the poorest
    countries were the happiest. The list of the happiest countries was topped by El
    Salvador, Paraguay, Uruguay, and Trinidad and Tobago. What is the secret of
    Hispanic happiness?

    Specialists of the Gallup Institute released data
    from a study conducted back
    in 2011. Experts conducted a survey in 148 countries around the world to find
    out in which countries people were more likely to experience positive emotions.
    People were interviewed in person and on the phone, and each person was asked
    five questions, all about the ways they spent the previous day.

    Social scientists asked whether the respondents
    felt joy, whether they felt rested, and how often they laughed and smiled. In
    addition, the researchers asked whether their interviewees felt respected by
    their peers, as well as whether they learned something new the day
    before.

    According to the Gallup, the happiest people on the planet were
    the citizens of El Salvador, Panama and Paraguay. These three countries were the
    “happiest”. The top ten included 7 countries in Latin America – in addition to
    the above, Venezuela, Ecuador, Guatemala and Costa Rica made the list. Russia,
    however, did not even make it to the top one hundred of the happiest countries,
    occupying one of the lowest spots (along with Iran and Algeria).

    First place in the ranking was occupied by a
    small equatorial country in Latin America – Panama, whose population is only 3.4
    million people (according to 2010 census). However, despite the relatively small
    size of the country and small population, the standard of living in the country
    is relatively high. According to the studies, the birth rate in the country is
    20 per thousand – 96th place among other countries. The mortality
    rate is low at about 4.5 people per 1000.

    Panama’s mortality rate is among the lowest
    -196th. The average life expectancy is impressive as Panamanian men
    live
    on average 74 years, women – 80. In Panama, the vast majority of the population
    lives in urban areas – 73 percent. The country earns its income exploiting the
    Panama Canal, as well as tourism, insurance, and banking. Two-thirds of the
    population is employed in these sectors. According to UN statistics, the per
    capita GDP in 2009 was nearly 12 thousand dollars, which is not bad for a small
    country whose level of production was only 18 per cent of annual GDP.

    World analysts note that Panama is a country
    where people can be quite happy with their living conditions. UN experts believe
    that the standard of living in the country is comparable to that of North
    America – the United States and Canada, only the price of goods and services is
    several times lower. For example, a meal at an upscale restaurant is only 50
    U.S. dollars, and a taxi ride anywhere in the capital is $2.

    The level of
    health care in the country is also high, noted the experts from the
    International Committee of the Red Cross. Hospitals and clinics boast state of
    the art equipment and doctors are highly skilled, which is key to the high level
    of health care in the country. Incidentally, nearly all of Panama’s qualified
    doctors have been trained in the U.S. The cost of health insurance in the
    country does not exceed $800 dollars, and the price of medical services is two
    times lower than in the United States.

    Of course, the Gallup experts noted that the
    infrastructure of the country and high quality of life were not the only factors
    that influenced the extent to which its citizens were happy. The country’s
    favorable climate plays a significant role. The temperatures remain virtually
    unchanged all year round at the level of 25-28C degrees in the afternoon.
    Panamanians never see snow, which is not surprising, as the country is located
    near the equator. Dry and rainy seasons do happen on the country’s
    territory.

    In 2005, Panama won the first place in the global index of the
    most comfortable countries in the world. Retirees tend to move to Panama because
    it has one of the most developed pension systems in the world. According to the
    American Association of Retired Persons and the organization “International
    Living”, the United States recognized Panama as one of the four of the world’s
    best countries to live outside the U.S.

    Despite the fact that El Salvador and Paraguay
    took the second and third places in the Gallup ranking, experts still say that
    the standard of living in these countries is low. The urban population in these
    countries is under 60 percent, and the economy is based on agriculture. The
    unemployment rate in these countries is somewhat higher, but it is easier to
    find a job here than in Panama – mainly in logging, and cotton and sugar cane
    plantations.

    Average life expectancy in other Latin American countries,
    however, is the same as in Panama – 73 years for men and 79 for women. However,
    the level of health care in these less developed countries is poor. For example,
    this year, Paraguayan doctors sounded the alarm as the country faced an epidemic
    of yellow fever. According to the Associated Press, in 2012, the state
    government appealed to various international health organizations asking for
    600,000 vaccines for prevention of yellow fever.

    The results surprised the researchers from the
    Gallup Institute as it turned out that the happiest people live in poor
    countries of Latin America. If the standard of living in Panama is comparable to
    that of developed European countries, residents of such countries as El
    Salvador, Uruguay, Venezuela, Trinidad and Tobago cannot boast similar
    conditions. Scientists explain this by historically formed mentality of these
    people who see happiness in things other than material goods. According to them,
    people in poor countries can find joy in the moral satisfaction that often is
    not available to citizens of the developed countries.

    Some of the world’s
    media cited an example of two attitudes – a successful and wealthy businessman
    from Singapore and a poor woman who sells tea in the streets of Paraguay. “We
    keep working and don’t get paid enough,” complained the 33-year Singaporean
    Richard Lowe. “Wealth does not bring happiness, but only problems. Life is too
    short, and there is no place for sadness,” said Maria Solis of Paraguay.

    Singapore, Iraq and Armenia closed the list of
    the happiest countries in the world. It may be true that it is not the standard
    of living in a particular country, but the attitude of the citizens that
    matters.Leave a message…

    Muslim Appeasing, Nepotistic, Totally Corrupt, Anti-National, Utterly Communal, Congress Harasses Hindu Spiritual and Social Work organisation – Sanatan Sanstha – with less than THREE convicted Terrorists

    Decision on right-wing outfit ban in 45 days, Centre to HC.

    The Central government on Thursday said that the decision on banning right-wing organisation Sanatan Sanstha by terming it a terror outfit under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA) would be taken in 45 days.

    Vijay Rokhade had filed a public interest litigation in the Bombay high court demanding that the organisation be termed a terror outfit, owing to its alleged activities that could destruct the administrative and legal governance.

    The state home department too had earlier recommended that right-wing Hindu outfits such as the Sanatan Sanstha, Hindu Janjagruti Samiti and Dharna Shakti Sena should be termed terrorist organisations under the Act.

    GR Sharma, counsel for the Centre, told the Bombay high court that the ministry of home affairs would look into the state government’s proposal on banning the outfit.

    An affidavit filed by the anti-terrorism squad last year had stated that only the Central government has the authority to declare any organisation unlawful under section 3 of the Act. The Centre can independently investigate and assess the outfits, the affidavit had stated.

    The affidavit had attached a copy of the proposal sent by the additional chief secretary of the home department to the director of the ministry of home affairs in April 2011, noting that three bomb blast cases have been registered against the activists.

    After considering the proposal, the Centre will send its recommendation to the Unlawful Activities Prevention that will take a final decision.

    3. These Indian Muslims then made Bombs, in India the knowledge of Bomb Making is only held by Muslims.

    4. They then exploded the Bombs in an empty field, far far away from anyone, purely as a practice session for Mega Diwali.

    5. Congress Paid for media and corrupt journalists falsely linked the blast to Goa, and to terrorism. Everyone knows Hinduism does not believe in terrorism.

    As is normal in your case, you pointlessly argue. Within three posts you shift your position and start abusing.

    In your first post you challenged me to prove that these
    people are terrorists by stating that they were convicted under “different acts” and were acquitted of terror. That is a
    legal position and not a social position. They may not have been convicted of terror, that does not stop from being terrorists.

    Then you shift your argument to their acts were in response to “Bomb blasts, and terror attacks by Jihadis” Two issues with that. Firstly an act of terrorism can not be justified by saying that this is in retaliation for their terrorist attacks.
    Secondly, that is the argument used by Jihadi’s as well. They say they are retaliating to your attacks on them.

    The we come to sitting ducks argument. The RSS and its ilk have never ever been “sitting ducks” they have been Hunting Parties often led by a Rath Yatra.

    DELHI
    — To think of Narendra Modi, the four-term chief minister of Gujarat,
    as a potential prime minister and the man who might revive the flagging
    fortunes of the B.J.P., India’s main opposition party, is to ignore the
    reality of Gujarat.

    Most infamously, Modi has been accused of deliberately allowing the sectarian mob violence that killed more than 1,000 people,
    most of them Muslims, in 2002, soon after he became chief minister.
    This may have been an extreme episode, but it is consistent with Modi’s
    divisive and exclusionary approach to governance and his efforts to
    marginalize Muslims.

    The
    issue surfaced again last week, not on the streets but in staid
    government offices in Delhi, when Modi and other chief ministers
    gathered for a meeting of the National Development Council, India’s top policy making body, to discuss pressing economic matters, including Muslim poverty.

    The issue has been a source of much debate since a 2006 government report [pdf]
    on the community’s social, economic and educational status found that
    it lagged behind the national average on a host of indicators. The
    findings were especially embarrassing for Gujarat: It claims to lead
    India in development, but its Muslims generally fare worse than Muslims
    across the country.

    Ajit Solanki/Associated PressNarendra Modi.

    Gujarat
    has an urban poverty ratio of almost 18 percent, compared with almost
    21 percent for the country as a whole. Yet according to India’s Planning Commission, a government body that draws up five-year plans for the economy, 42.4 percent of the Muslims in urban Gujarat are poor, compared with 33.9 percent of Muslims in urban India overall.

    Still,
    Modi has opposed a national plan from 2007 to set aside 15 percent of
    development funds for Muslims, claiming it would threaten the “social fabric of the nation.” He also has refused to implement another program that would have provided 53,000 scholarships to Muslim students in Gujarat — a state where 75 percent of school-age Muslims are enrolled in school but only 26 percent go on to finish, while 79 percent of the total school-age population is enrolled and 41 percent go on to finish.

    The
    results of such policies are visible on the ground. Modi’s own
    constituency of Maninagar, in the state capital of Ahmedabad, is a
    largely middle-class area. But in Millat Nagar, the heart of Maninagar
    and home to 20,000 Muslims, Modi’s famed roads give way to streets full
    of potholes and comfortable homes to broken-down shacks.

    When
    I first visited Millat Nagar in 2007, residents told me that about 75
    percent of the houses had no drinking water and that the streetlights
    had not functioned in a decade. Modi had never visited this area, nor
    had any other member of his party.

    I
    returned last month during the election campaign for the state assembly.
    The area hadn’t changed much, except for some work on roads and sewers
    started by the few Muslims from the area who had been elected on a
    Congress ticket in municipal elections in 2011. Still, by focusing on
    everyone but Muslims — who account for only 8 percent of the vote in Maninagar — Modi won 77 percent of the vote in his constituency.

    Modi
    and the B.J.P. also won 47 percent of ballots in all of Gujarat,
    securing 115 of the 182 seats in the state legislature. Not one of the
    B.J.P.’s candidates was Muslim, even though almost 10 percent of Gujarat’s population is Muslim.

    A comprehensive 2011 report of
    government data by Abusaleh Shariff, who was chief economist of the
    National Council of Applied Economic Research for more than 15 years,
    concludes that Muslims in Gujarat “fare poorly on parameters of poverty,
    hunger, education and vulnerability on security issues — nowhere
    benefiting from the feel-good growth story” painted by the current
    government.

    When Modi argues against
    targeting development specifically at Muslims, it is not because he
    worries about destroying the social fabric by treating different groups
    differently. It is because such initiatives imperil his own attempts to
    isolate Muslims in Gujarat.

    Delhi Gang Rape – Why Mohan Bhagwat took so long to react?

    It is well known , when it comes to commenting on women’s issues, men lack empathy, Mohan Bhagwat – a confirmed bachelor - more so. Being a very determined Hindu Fascist, he went into a तपस्या and sought divine intervention, which appeared to him in the shape of Narad Muni. Who is a transgendered demi-god with some experience of being a woman. It was Narad Muni who passed on to Mohan Bhagwat a HinduFatwa – भारत में – stick to ancient Hindu values as enshrined in Manu Smriti.

    What other explanation can there be as to why Mohan Bhagwat took 3 weeks to pass a comment, one week more than Ban Ki-Moon took.

    From the pages of history…
    Rajiv Gandhi awarded the highest civilian award in India, the Bharat Ratna
    >>For introducing such priceless gems as “hume banana hai” in our lexicon
    >>For such profoundly philosophical comments such as “when a big tree falls, the ground trembles…”
    >>For having friends such as Mani Aiyar and Arun Nehru(a man is truly known by his friends)
    >> For making the most definitive statement on women’s empowerment and minority rights by ensuring Muslim women learn self-reliance rather than look upto their erstwhile husband (the one they do not like anyway) for maintenance
    >>And ensuring his legacy is passed on to an even bigger intellectual, his able progeny, Shri Rahul Gandhi

    Jai Ho. Of course, not for nothing he is still the darling of the chattering classes.

    The Two Nation Story

    Long years ago, we dreamt of our destiny. Now the time has come when we shall reveal our pledge – not how we shall achieve it – but substantially what we will do. At the stroke of the midnight hour, when girls in India are being raped, Bharat will sleep soundly free from western values. A moment comes, but rarely in history, when we step back from the modern into the ancient, when rage ends, and when the soul of Hindu nation, long supressed, finds un-salted butter. It is fitting that at his solemn moment we take the opportunity to further divide of our country in the service of Hindus and to the still larger cause of Bharat.

    At the dawn of history Aryans were already living in Akhand Bharat and their centuries old tarmacked tracks stretched far into west trading its successes with failed states. Through good and better fortune alike HE has never lost the sight of superiority of its Aryan dominating ideals which left the rest very weak. We end today a period of failed flirtation with western values and Bharat discovers himself again. The achievement we celebrate today is due to a great act of opportunism, which will lead to greater triumphs and achievements that await us. Are we brave enough and wise enough to grasp this opportunity and further divide our country into raped India and raping Bharat?

    Fascism and power bring about the Third Reich. The responsibility rests upon
    ME, the sovereign bachelor representing the Hindus of Bharat. During the birth of the first partition we had ensured all the pains of communalism and we have become savvy due to the memory of this sorrow. We continued inflicting those pains and are doing even now. Nevertheless, the flirtation is over and it is the future full of ancient Indian values that beckons us in Bharat.

    That future in Bharat is not one of skirt wearing and dancing girls but of Khap encouraged incest striving to maintain racial purity so that we may fulfil the destiny of our race we have so long dreamt and that becomes real today. The service of Bharat means the service of the millions of Hindus who have suffered for centuries. It means keeping many in poverty and ignorance and disease and inequality of opportunity. The ambition of the greatest Brahmin of our generation has been to ignore every crocodile tear in every dalit eye. That is not beyond us, and as long as there are tears and suffering, our work will deliver.

    And so we have to make dalits labour and to work, and work hard, to give
    reality to our dreams. Those dreams are for Bharat, but they are not for India,
    for both the nations and peoples will live apart from today for soon it will
    not be possible for any one of them to imagine that they ever lived together in Peace.

    To the people of India, whose representatives are Italian Christians, we
    make an appeal to observe us with faith and confidence in this great adventure. This division is the result of petty and destructive criticism, ill-will and blaming others. We have to build the noble mansion of free Bharat where only Hindus and their children may dwell.

    The appointed day has come – the day engineered by fascism – and Bharat
    stands forth again, after two divisions, awake, vigilante, where lower castes
    work and upper become dependent.

    The past clings on to us still in some measure and we have to destroy many more masjids before we redeem the Vande Matram pledge we take every day. Yet the turning-point is now, and fictionalising of history begins anew for us, the history which we shall invent to fit our vision and press releases we will issue so that others will write about us.

    It is a fateful moment for us in Central India. A new sun rises, the sun of Hindufatwadi fascism in the East, a new hope for the elite comes into being, a vision long cherished by Brahmins materializes. May the sun never set and that hopes of the Hindu elite never be betrayed!

    We rejoice in this freedom, even though Italian clowns surround us, and many
    of our Hindus are westernised and difficult problems encompass us. But freedom brings responsibilities for the elite and burdens for the dalits whom we have to face and discipline.

    JAI BHARAT.

    Secularism is bad political karma. Once again, the Congress party is
    caught in a secular cleft stick of its own making. What to do with the
    Owaisi brothers? Akbaruddin Owaisi, the MLA from Chandrayangutta, Andhra
    Pradesh—who belongs to the Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM)—launched a
    communally inflammable speech at Adilabad on December 24. Last August,
    the elder Owaisi Asaduddin, a six-time MP from Hyderabad, had warned
    Indian Parliament that “if proper rehabilitation does not take place,
    you be ready for a third wave of radicalisation among Muslim youth”. He
    was speaking on the violence in Assam against Bangladeshi immigrants. He
    got away with it, while Manmohan Singh wore his trademark deadpan
    expression and Sonia and Rahul Gandhi chose not to respond. After all,
    at the time Asaduddin made his unparliamentary speech, the MIM was a
    Congress ally in Andhra Pradesh, where a shaky Congress government is
    precariously clinging to power. (Now, MIM is negotiating an alliance
    with Jagan Reddy’s YSR Congress in order to expand their base from the
    old city to the whole of Andhra.)

    The UPA government, which faces
    General Elections next year and has been ardently wooing Muslims with
    promises of job reservation, has chosen to adopt its prime minister’s
    dictum where Akbaruddin is concerned—keep schtum and just say ‘theek
    hai’. It took more than two weeks for the state government to file an
    FIR against the man, who has since fled to London for medical treatment
    at the city’s tony restaurants. The Andhra chief minister’s response was
    the time-worn cliché of politicians caught in a tough spot: “The law
    will take its own course.” The Congress ignored Akbaruddin’s challenge
    to democratically elected chief minister Narendra Modi to visit
    Hyderabad, promising to hang him like Kasab. The favourite rant of our
    secularists—who deplore death penalty for Afzal Guru—is that Modi is
    polarising the nation with his Hindutva agenda, though he won a huge
    percentage of Muslim votes in the Gujarat elections. Strangely, few
    secular voices were raised on how polarising Akbaruddin’s speech was for
    India.

    The Congress is unaware that this polarisation could prove
    to be its greatest nemesis. What Indian Muslims want is not the charity
    of reservation but dignity and participation in development. What
    Akbaruddin is fighting is development. He and his ilk are afraid of
    losing their lumpen base, which is slowly being transformed by education
    and the prospects of employment—Modi’s most successful plank. Perhaps,
    they are bothered about voices like Asifa Khan’s—the BJP’s modern Muslim
    face in Gujarat—who said after the Gujarat victory: “Muslims have
    responded to Modi’s inclusive politics, and the community has moved
    beyond 2002 in Gujarat and has voted overwhelmingly for the BJP in the
    state.”

    The curse of the Congress, lost in a secular fog, is that
    it has lost its decisiveness. It’s a party that orders the use of water
    cannons and lathi charges against students protesting rape, but plays
    dumb against communal outbursts. The tragedy is that it commands respect
    for this point of view from the mainstream media, which finds it easier
    to attack a Praveen Togadia, Varun Gandhi or even a Bal Thackeray than
    an Owaisi. The Congress was a party that started its rule in India in
    the 1950s, with an inclusive agenda. In 2013, it is frightened to
    electoral death. In 1971, Indira Gandhi was not afraid of losing the
    minority vote when she sent the Indian Army into Pakistan. She was not
    afraid of taking on terrorists when she sent Indian troops into the
    Golden Temple to root out Bhindranwale. She paid for it with her life,
    unprotected by the huge phalanx of NSG commandos and SPG cordons that
    guard her daughter-in-law and grandson, and the prime minister today.

    The Congress has forgotten what Indira stood for. The irony is that it will take a Narendra Modi to remind it.

    I still doubt that anything will happen to this guy, he will lie low till the things calm down. Latter he may make a token appearance in the

    President of Bharat Hints on Uniform Civil Code

    Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) supremo Mohan Bhagwat has done it again. This time the RSS boss raised questions on the sanctity of the institution of marriage by saying that married women should limit themselves to household chores.

    “Marriage is nothing more than a social contract where the husband promises the wife food and security while the wife will take care of the household duties. If the wife fails to deliver, the husband should leave the wife,” said Bhagawat as per a Times Now report.

    4999 Dalit Rapes Every Day in UP

    I have said the above many a times here is the ground reality:

    For anyone living in rural Bharat:

    To report a rape you need a Police Station, there are precious few of those in Bharat.

    Even if one finds a Police Station, one needs a sensitive officer to report the crime and they are about as common as rocking horse shit.

    In all Rape cases one needs a Doctor to examine, how many of those can be found in rural Bharat.

    The accused needs to be incarcerated if there is prima facia evidence against him, in India they are released on bail, sometimes on anticipatory bail, release to intimidate the victim, her family and any witnesses.

    All of the above do not exist in Bharat and therefore 4,999 daily rapes remain unreported. But our MORON BHAGWAT seems to be totally unaware of this, on account of the fact that he lives in gated India.

    I did say, and will say it again, and again and again and again and again that sexual exploitation of Dalits in rural India takes place due to Hindu values, if you think this is wrong then you are burying your head in the sand of false pride.

    I blame RSS for trying to regress India into romantic, non-existent ancient Indian Values. No one has said what they are and how far back does one have to go to find them. When I quoted Manu Smriti on the women’s issues, you threw a fit.

    If the Rochdale men who groomed young girls were accused of doing so because of their Muslim religion then why is it that upper caste rapes are not because of upper caste’s dominion over the lower castes and the establishment refusing to treat crimes against them seriously.

    Shoeb, Mohan-

    As I stated before, both Akbarudin and his elder brother Asiduddin are venomous people; the younger one worse.

    Akbaruddin was shot and almost killed by a rival Muslim mafia led by Phehlewan.

    Their MIM party was with congress until recently before the Bhagyalaxnmi temple incident happened. However, now they have separated and have formed alliance with Jagan Reddy.

    Actually, Congress did a good thing by limiting them to the old city. They did not have any politicking beyond the old city, and did not try to get the Muslim votes in other districts.

    The affiliation with Jagan will change that. They will expand to other parts of the state and attract Muslims who will buy his hate rhetoric.

    All the more reason to prosecute Jagan and put him in jail permanently. Otherwise it is bad for Andhra, Jagan will steal everything; he and his party would not care an iota about Akbaruddin and his bro spreading venom and hate as long as they close their eyes to his stealing.

Female guests – including one said to have been heavily pregnant – were taken to an adjacent property and raped. One guest used a hidden mobile phone to call 110, the police emergency hotline. Most of the attackers had fled by the time officers arrived, reports said, but four were later arrested.

    In the medium-sized town, word of the rapes spread like wildfire. … With people angered by this silence and fearful about the security of local women, a huge protest was organised outside the courthouse via text messages. Yet the comments then made by state officials were to provoke even greater controversy.

    Town leaders proceeded to blame the victims:

    Musa Salemi, the imam of Khomeinishahr, said in his Friday sermon that “Those who were raped were not praiseworthy. Only two out of the 14 were related. They had come to our town to party and provoked the others [the rapists] by their wine drinking and dancing.”

    Hossein Yardoosti, a colonel in the Revolutionary Guards and police commander of Khomeinishahr, added: “I believe the raped women’s families are to blame, because if they had proper clothing and if the sound of their music was not so loud, the rapist would not have imagined it as a depraved get-together.” Reports indicated he might bring legal action against the rape victims for their behaviour.

    Rs 20 crore meant for night shelters in Delhi siphoned off

    For over 20 years almost Rs 20 crore earmarked for building night shelters and to provide other welfare assistance to the national Capital’s poor and homeless was siphoned off with impunity. And when the scam was busted, there seems to have been an organized bid to shelter the guilty.

    Indiscriminate killing is creating more hatred

    America can only succeed in combating terror in an alliance with true Muslims

    By Sinem Tezyapar

    Following the attack on September 11th that caused the
    deaths of thousands of innocent people and the injury of many more, the
    United States of America initiated a wide ranging fight against terror. A
    large part of its resources were, and are, occupied with monitoring
    organizations that resort to terror and taking precautions against their
    activities. But has this struggle really been effective? Or has enmity
    toward America spread over a wider base? How much longer will the
    campaign go on? Can talk and measures that turn Americans into a fearful
    society really provide a solution to terror? And can problems really be
    resolved in direct proportion to the amount of force used? These are
    just a few of the questions the U.S. government needs to ask itself.

    It is of course obvious that all those who perpetrate and support
    acts of terror must be punished within the bounds of international law
    and justice. What is even more important is the adoption of a policy
    that will totally resolve this problem. The USA has thus far largely
    relied on military and security measures in this struggle against terror
    and all those elements that support terror. However, we have now
    reached a point where it is clear that this campaign cannot produce a
    definitive solution.

    One of the main reasons for this is that the U.S. war on terror has –
    largely – been shaped in the framework of military measures and that
    the requisite supplementary measures to support that campaign in the
    educational and cultural spheres have not been undertaken. However, it
    is wrong to seek to solve terror, a socio-psychological and ideological
    problem, through military means alone. This both leads to the loss of
    innocent lives and further nourishes radicalism, and by extension,
    terrorism. Terrorism can only be completely eliminated through an
    intellectual campaign that neutralizes the propaganda or terrorist
    groups, and the military campaign can only be of limited use.

    Of course the Western world, and in particular the USA, must take
    deterrent precautions against terrorism, and is justified in doing so.
    However, it must make it clear that in the same way that these are not
    aimed at any faith and its members, that they are not aimed against
    Islam and Muslims, and that on the contrary, these measures are in
    Islam’s interests.

    Some ideologues and strategists who make the mistake of regarding
    Islam as a faith and civilization that is completely “hostile” and who
    literally encourage a bloody war between the Western and Islamic worlds
    are in fact simply creating more enemies of the U.S. government. The
    U.S. government needs to issue rational statements rejecting the
    scenarios of war between the “West and Islam” in such a way that these
    are made clear to world public opinion, against those circles who insist
    on portraying the war on terror as a fight against Islam.

    In addition, it is utterly essential that the fight against terrorism
    be waged within the rules and norms of international law and using as
    peaceable means as possible. It must not be forgotten that all actions
    that ignore the law and basic human rights and lead to the loss of
    civilian lives cast a shadow over this campaign that was initiated on
    legitimate grounds.

    On the other hand, making sure that the moral values of Islam are
    properly understood and that those who misunderstand Islam and implement
    it wrongly are forbidden from doing so is actually something that can
    and must be done by Muslims. The policy that the USA needs to adopt on
    that issue is to support and facilitate a solution that emerges from
    inside the Islamic world.

    The development of a “True Islam,” a religion of love, friendship,
    peace and brotherhood, and the proper understanding of Islamic societies
    need to be supported. The solution to be applied against radical groups
    in Islamic countries is not “enforced secularization.” On the contrary,
    such a policy will just cause greater mass reactions. The solution is
    for the true meaning of Islam to be properly understood. In other words,
    the spreading of a Muslim model that adopts concepts required by the
    Qur’ans moral values, such as human rights, democracy, liberty, moral
    virtue, art, science and beauty, and that offers happiness and the joy
    of living to all mankind.

    The origin of terror to a large extent lies in ignorance and
    fanaticism, and the solution to it is education. Those who feel sympathy
    for terrorism need to be told that this is a complete violation of
    Islam and that, on the contrary, they are actually harming Islam,
    Muslims and all mankind in this way, and these people need to be
    educated so as to rid them of their barbarism. U.S. support for such a
    policy of education will lead to highly positive outcomes.

    Long-term cultural solutions must also be developed against the
    terror that stems from communist, fascist, racist and other ideologies.
    Materialist and Darwinist thinking today constitutes the basis of
    education in countries all over the world. A mindset that regards man as
    an animal in a constant state of conflict and that believes he can only
    progress through conflict and war, represents the basis of all forms of
    terrorism.

    In addition to judicial and police measures to be adopted in the
    fight against terror, a major educational mobilization needs to be
    commenced across the world as a whole. One hopes that such measures will
    help in liberating the world from terror and other harsh, savage and
    bigoted activities because America, with the Judeo-Christian culture it
    represents, is really the friend of the Muslim world.

    ‘Zero-Defect’ Mantra for Gujarat Industry: Modi

    Claiming that Gujarat is now leading the country in
    the manufacturing sector, Chief Minister Narendra Modi today asked the industry
    to adopt a ‘zero-defect’ model while producing goods.

    “For our
    manufacturing sector to shine it needs to adopt a ‘zero-defect mantra’. None of
    our products must be rejected. Give importance to packaging and branding,” Modi
    told the industry representatives here.

    “There should be no corner of the
    world where people are not drawn towards buying products made here and I can
    tell you it is possible,” he added.

    Modi was addressing the inaugural
    session of ‘Sparkle International 2013′, a gems and jewellery exhibition
    organised jointly by the Gujarat government and the South Gujarat Chamber of
    Commerce and Industry here today. The exhibition is a precursor to the upcoming
    ‘Vibrant Gujarat Global Investment Summit- 2013′.

    “Gujarat is now known
    for its manufacturing sector, instead of just being known only for business and
    trading earlier,” Modi claimed.

    Modi claimed that “Small-scale industry
    growth in the nation is 19-20 per cent, whereas Gujarat is witnessing 85 per
    cent growth in the sector.”

    “However, anti-Gujarat elements have created
    a perception of only a certain kind of industrial growth taking place in the
    state, but it is not true,” he said.

    Speaking about the potential in the
    jewellery sector, Modi said, “Jewellery itself has a big market in the world.
    This is going on for years. And we need not tell people about why to wear it,
    it’s only a question of saying what to wear.”

    The Chief Minister said
    that the jewellery market in Gujarat has a potential to grow to Rs 5,500 crore
    from the present Rs 2,700 crore. “If such a big market is waiting for us, why
    can’t we be aggressive? Why can’t we strengthen it?”

    Details of Ancient Indian Values Begin to Appear

    Delhi gangrape victim as guilty as rapists: Asaram Bapu

    Self-proclaimed godman Asaram Bapu has joined the long list of personalities who have put their foot in their mouth after making observations about the Delhi gangrape case by claiming that the 23-year-old woman, who died of her injuries, was as guilty as those responsible for the barbaric sexual assault on her.

    According to Indian Express, the godman said, “Only 5-6 people are not the culprits. The victim daughter is as guilty as her rapists… She should have called the culprits brothers and begged before them to stop… This could have saved her dignity and life.”

    He didn’t stop there. He went on to say, “Can you clap with one hand? I don”t think so.”

    The self-proclaimed godman further said that he was against harsher punishments for the accused as the law could be misused. “Dowry harassment law is the biggest example of law being misused,” he said.

    His comments come at a time when outrage over the incident in Delhi has prompted a nationwide debate over women’s safety.

    But this is not the first time in the spotlight of controversy for the godman. In a blistering attack on Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi in February last year, Asaram threatened to throw his government out of Gujarat if a probe into the deaths of two children in his ashram. He failed, and a CID (Crime) chargesheet was filed against Asaram in connection with the mysterious death of two kids studying in Motera Gurukul.

    I blame the media for telling us what is right and what is wrong. They should just report news/views as they are and let us decide how does it bother us. Instead, they are setting the benchmark for what’s acceptable and what’s not by raising the pitch like “the nation wants to know”, “XYZ has made a controversial statement”, “how could you say” etc. For God’s sake, we live in a democracy and have rights to air our views. Unless it is anti-national and inciting communal/caste feelings, no big issue should be made out of it.

    If someone has a problem with Asaram Bapu’s/Bhagwat’s statements, let him go to the courts and ask for an arrest warrant issued. Simply shouting from studios won’t help. If there is no such case, just shut up and talk about things that bother us like – how to improve the state of the nation. Oh, that’s too difficult and doesn’t get the TRP.

    When I watch BBC or CNN, (they may be biased – I haven’t got means to say either way), the anchors seem pretty relaxed and keep emotions aside.

    But politics always gets the better of economics, especially in Bengal. For Mamata, the controversy offered an easy ride to power. She grabbed it with both hands….
    Well, the Tatas lost time, and got embroiled in litigation, but they had no problem in finding other states who rolled out the red carpet. There were TN, Haryana, Maharashtra and Gujarat all calling on the Tata chief to woo him. Look at the contrast. These states were wooing Ratan Tata, when Mamata was shooing him out. Call it the Bengali pride (what Bengal does today, India does tomorrow rhetoric) or the destructive “hobe na” (can’t be done) attitude….whatever the reason, Bengal lost a prime industrial project to Gujarat. Had Mamata correctly understood the political importance of the project, like Narendra Modi did, she could have been a much-loved CM. Today instead, Gujarat stands tall, and WB stooped in a beggar’s stance. Narendra Modi is the loved CM, and Mamata the reviled one.
    The farmers whose land was “forcibly” taken by the Left government are also in tatters. Here was an opportunity for them to be part of the re-industrialization of the state. To learn new skills and be part of the new economy. Bad politicians – read Mamata – made gullible and uneducated farmers turn the wrong way. Thanks to their decision, they remain buried in poverty. Today, they are demanding that the litigation be stopped and a settlement be reached with the Tatas. Given a choice, they would want to “undo” their decision and welcome the Tatas back. But this is like trying to close the stable door after the horse has bolted.
    Where are the Medha Patkars, the Arundhati Roy’s now? Where are the Aparna Sen’s and other “intellectuals” of Bengal now? All have scooted. They made political hay while the sun shone on the issue. They have since gone elsewhere where the political sun is shining. I must single out Medha Patkar here. She’s a completely hare-brained woman (with due apologies to the hares) who cannot understand that economic progress and only economic progress can bring about social equity. She also opposes all forms of power generation – at different points in time, she has opposed hydro power (agricultural land gets flooded), thermal power (causes air pollution) and nuclear power (too risky). What does this woman want? All she seeks is sensationalism and 5 minutes of media glory. The tragedy of India is that its NGOs, its activists, are made up of nitwits like Medha Patkar. Read Tavleen Singh in Indian Express yesterday (6th Jan) to know what she thinks of NGOs in this country.

    In Exceptionally Well Governed State Jarkhand, BJP led Gov unravels

    In a blatant attempt to illegally wrest power from the most experienced and honest party – The BJP, JMM breaks promises and withdraws support from the BJP. This seems like a conspiracy forged by anti-nation, anti-Hindu, foreign elements, first Karnataka, and now Jarkhand. Where will this end? In a National Government in 2014 of course. It is only a question of time, when President Modi assumes total power totally.

    +++

    RANCHI: The Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) on Monday withdrew support from the BJP-led Arjun Munda government here over the issue of “rotation of power”, reducing it to a minority in the 82-member house and plunging the state into a political crisis.

    “Today (Monday) we have decided to withdraw support from the government,” deputy chief minister Hemant Soren and son of JMM chief Shibu Soren told reporters here.

    “We had put some points before the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders. The points include change of guard and sharing of power after 28 months,” he said.

    The party also sought apology from a BJP MP for allegedly passing indecent remarks about the JMM chief.

    MORE RAPE FACTS FOR LOVERS HEER AND RAJAH– RAVI AND ENGRICH:

    A Filipino woman in Saudi Arabia is scheduled to be lashed 100 times by the government as punishment for being raped. To add to the tragedy, the Filipino has been held in prison since September 2009. In December 2009, the woman — known only as “Camille” — miscarried. Now, she is facing a medieval crime — all because she was raped.

    The story is astounding. Camille (of course, not here real name), 35-years-old, travelled to Saudi Arabia in spring of 2009 to work as a janitor in order to support three children aged 15, 14 and 5. She was raped by a Bangladeshi coworker in August. In Saudi Arabia, all sex outside of marriage — including rape and sexual assault — can result in prison and lashings under their extreme interpetation of Sharia.

    The woman, fully aware of this, opted not to press charges and instead managed to arrange repatriation to the Philippines. All foreign workers returning home from Saudi Arabia are required to undergo a medical exam. That’s where the trouble started:

    The girl was admitted to a hospital in Bahawalpur after being raped on Wednesday. She remains in critical condition due to loss of blood and internal injuries, the Express Tribune reported, quoting the hospital’s doctors.

    Local police have launched a criminal case against seven men for the kidnap and rape; no arrests have been made yet.

    The girl’s mother named five of the seven suspects. She reportedly told police that she hesitated to inform law enforcers because the kidnappers threatened to kill her and the girl if the woman spoke to authorities.

    there is nothing wrong. In fact, he should ask his elder brother, Assaduddin Owaisi also to give speeches like the ones he gave….

    It is an eye opener for Hindus outside AP too. Akbaruddin Owaisi has shown how, under propitious circumstances, the deshdrohis like the razaakaars can flourish and multiply in India.

    More and more hate speeches will wake up the Hindus who are in deep slumber.

    Media helping Govt replace gangrape reality with mythology
    The case against Zee News for airing interview of her friend is proof that it is no longer about protecting the victim’s identify. It is about obliterating her memory
    AJAY SINGH | NEW DELHI | JANUARY 05 2013

    The media coverage of the ghastly Delhi gangrape has turned out to be a case of the sacred getting mixed up with the profane
    View   Image

    http://governancenow.com/news/regular-story/media-helping-govt-replace-gangrape-reality-mythology

    It’s a very thin line between the sacred and the profane. Even those in elementary classes in journalism schools are taught without demur that the basic job of a reporter is not to hide facts but to reveal them in all detail. Even if it means going on the wrong side of the law, journalists would be failing in their sacred duty if they conceal facts that reveal the truth.

    But the media coverage of the ghastly Delhi gangrape has turned out to be a case of the sacred getting mixed up with the profane. The manner in which the mainstream media acted in cahoots with the government and the Delhi police would serve as a perfect example of a remark often attributed to Indira Gandhi about the conduct of the media during the emergency, “They were asked to bend but they started crawling.”

    Ravi’s Papa and Engrich’s bapa rape women in Pakistan:

    LeT terrorist Ravi is Hafees Saeed balatkar ki Nishani.

    Engirch who enjoys ravi and does bad things to Ravi is LeT madrassa head.

    See what they do in their pyaara Pakistan:

    Miss Anna (name withheld), is a 12-year-old Christian girl and the daughter of Arif Masih. Arif is employed as a street sweeper (scavenger) at WAPDA. He is a resident of quarter number 44, WAPDA colony, Shahdra, Lahore, the capital of Punjab province. Anna was kidnapped by two Muslim men on December 24, 2010, one day before Christmas. According to the report sent by the Pakistan Minority Movement, on that day in the morning her friend, Miss Nida, who lives in her neighbourhood, came to her house and asked Anna to go shopping. According to the plan of the perpetrators, her friend took her to a street where they waited in a car. Miss Nida introduced the perpetrator her as her uncle.

    Anna was then taken a long distance and dropped at a house where she was raped. After two days some women, relatives of the rapists, namely Mumtaz Bibi.Farzana Bibi, Kiran Bibi along with her friend Nida came with some papers and told her to sign them otherwise she would not be released. Eventually she did sign with hesitation but was not released. The papers were about her marriage to one of the perpetrators, Muhammad Irfan. She was taken to several places and was forced to convert to Islam. When she refused she was manhandled and beaten.

    After her abduction, her father filed an FIR against unknown people on 5/1/2011.F I R NO 18/11. Sr. No 2138 to the Factory area police station district Shaikhupura, Lahore. However, the police took no action for eight months.

    This is about the controversial comments of Mohan Bhagwat where he was reported as saything that women’s place is in kitchen. How the media

    selectively took a sentence out of context and kept on playing it whole day.

    http://www.newslaundry.com/2013/01/snide-and-prejudiced/

    This is what the article says:

    The English media went into overdrive yesterday. They’d managed to find
    another misogynist to quote, and as a cherry on the sexist cake this quote was
    from Mohan Bhagwat, the chief of the RSS, the English media’s favourite bug
    bear.

    According to most of the English press, Bhagwat, a chauvinistic prig, had the
    temerity to make a public speech stating that women are bound to look after
    their husbands by contract, and if they didn’t fulfil their duties, their
    husbands could and should leave them. And that a woman’s place is in the kitchen
    doing household chores.

    Many news channels ran with the story. And their public school educated
    reporters and editors tweeted and retweeted gleefuly with gay abandon, exposing
    the shakha-types.
    Only problem, Bhagwat – whose main sin appears to be that
    he wears khaki bermudas despite the effect the vision might have on unsuspecting
    viewers – has been misquoted!

    He was commenting on the Western model of modernity. And in that context, he
    was articulating his view of their view. Get it? He said in the
    “modern” interpretation of marriage (not his), women are bound
    by contract to serve their husbands. He also said that husbands were bound to
    look after their wives. Much like women are supposed to look after household
    chores and keep their husbands satisfied, men are expected to provide for their
    wives and look after them, as per the modern version of the marriage contract.
    And if either the wife or husband didn’t manage to do so, the dissatisfied party
    breaks the contract and contracts a second or third, as per the modern version
    of the marriage contract. Get it? Mohan Bhagwat’s speech –
    http://samvada.org/2013/news-digest/video-rss-chief-mohan-bhagwat-speech-on-women-housewife-issue/

    But that’s too boring a story to run with. So let’s pillory the bermuda-clad
    wonder instead and say that “BHAGWAT SAYS WOMEN SHOULD STAY IN THE KITCHEN AND
    COOK”. “AND THOSE WHO DON’T COO,K WELL SHOULD BE BEATEN”. Ok no one actually ran
    with that, but admit it, some of you were itching to. Yes you. You know
    who you are.

    Here are just some of the reports which carried the incorrect quote.
    NDTV
    , IBN , India Today , The Times Of India , Zee News , Indian Express

    Only to have to retract the story the very next day. So the morning of
    January 7, 2013 saw a flurry of tweets from editors and journalists alike
    eating their words and wiping the egg off their faces. And of
    course, blaming ANI (which is everyone’s favourite whipping boy [after the RSS]
    ever since the Theek Hai fiasco) for posting the wrong story. Maybe, just maybe,
    the various news channels could have cross-checked the video (a mammoth
    4-minute clip that too) themselves and then carried the story.

    Thanks to the English media’s prejudice against the RSS and the right-wing,
    the RSS has managed to get a free PR campaign for itself. Suddenly, from being
    viewed as chauvinistic and misogynistic (not without reason), the RSS and
    Bhagwat have come across as misunderstood and wronged. Take a bow, o English media. You’ve done it again.

    The Delhi rape accused have, contrary to people’s hopes, have been receiving offers of help from lawyers to defend them!

    The accused have been charge sheeted for murder, gangrape, attempt to murder, kidnapping, unnatural offences, dacoity, hurting in committing robbery, destruction of evidence, criminal conspiracy and common intention under the Indian Penal Code. Almost all crimes in the book have been included, except waging war against the state.

    The trial may take at least a year, as the prosecution has to prove all these charges.

    What is our Shikhandi govt going to do ? What do our pundits say about this? Owaisi is walking around advocating the beheading of Indians. What is Kiran Reddy and Cong going to do – other than making vague statements that law will take its own course.
    Owaisi should be put in jail just like Madani (Congressis in kerala successfully accomplished to move him to a private hospital from the jail in Bangalore on some flimsy health grounds).

    but if we put Owaisi in jail, then we should put all rajyadrohis in jail – corrupt IAS/IPS, corrupt politicians, rapists, all. In fact, at times I feel these rascals are bigger threat to the country than the Jehadis.

    So now the myth making starts

    For the last two days the internet Hindu Trolls have been busy. Many have re-surfaced after a period of shame sanyaas suggesting that the comments were taken out of context (ha ha ha). Others have suggested that the journalists have been fired after they posted apologies in the main media. (no one has ever provided a link or the text of the apology). I would love to read it.

    Whatever the truth of the matter, if the media gets something factually wrong, the first thing they do is to kill the story, even if they stubbornly refuse to apologise.

    Surprising then that HT persisted with the story of Moron Bhagwat, all be it in their Comments column. Here is what the comment says.

    Apart from carrying out his duties as the chief of the RSS, Mohan Bhagwat seems to have found time to lay down a code of conduct for married couples, in particular women. He feels that women should stay at home and look after the chores and satisfy their husbands failing which the latter would be obliged to disown them.

    This quote is almost verbatim the same as this news-paper carried in its news columns two days ago. No retraction, no apology.

    Further more it is strongly suggested here that MORON BHAGWAT needs
    to get out of his home in Nagpur more often and get in touch with both Bharat
    and India on which he has also expressed some bizarre views. Not a hint of apology and or retraction of the original story.

    So, Mr Bhagwat needs to weigh his words carefully before making such retrograde statements. His thoughts have a profound effect on the RSS cadre, the very people who work on the ground for the BJP’s candidates.

    Sound advise indeed.

    Abu Azmi of SP sharing his view on rapes:

    “Joining a list of leaders who made controversial remarks following
    the Delhi gangrape incident, Samajwadi Party leader Abu Azmi today said
    women should not go out with men other than relatives and agreed with
    RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat’s view that most rapes take place in cities and
    not villages.

    “Women should not venture out with men who are not relatives,” Azmi, a member of Maharashtra assembly, said here.

    “What is the need for roaming at night with men who are not relatives? This should be stopped,” he said.

    “Such incidents (like the Delhi gang rape) happen due to influence of western culture,” Azmi said.

    Scantily-clad women attract male attention, Azmi said adding rape cases are on the rise due to “women wearing less clothes.”

    Azmi agreed with RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat’s statement on Bharat-India divide when it comes incidents of rape and that “rape is a phenomenon that
    happens in cities and not in villages”.

    “The number of rape cases in villages are less (compared to cities),” he said.

    Azmi said “I am 100 per cent of the opinion that there should be a legislation to prevent outraging modesty of women”.

    He said “if a girl goes with her consent with him (boy friend) to a hotel
    and does not complain, then it is not an issue. But if the same girl
    goes with the boy to the hotel and no one knows what happens
    inside…and if the girl comes out and complains, he would be hanged,”
    Azmi said.

    Asaram Bapu had yesterday courted controversy for
    suggesting that the victim of the brutal sexual assault in Delhi was
    equally responsible for the crime saying the girl could have called her
    assailants brothers and begged them to stop.”

    You may all remember the APCC chief Bosta Satyanarayana Rao statement – “India did not get freedom at midnight so that girls and women can go out after midnight”.

    The general impression in India, cutting across all political, social and religious divide, is that Indian leadership has given away the psychological advantage of being right, by its wimpish attitude of trying to sweep all problems with Pakistan under the carpet.

    Hopefully, the younger generations would put enough pressure on this spineless maa-beta sarkar to take a stand on these pin pricks.

    Can we really expect this government headed by Ms. Gandhi to do anything about the heinous killing of our two brave soldiers by Pakistanis

    Do not endorse outfits that promote secession

    Congress president Sonia Gandhi is the co-president of Forum of Democratic Leaders in the Asia-Pacific, an organisation that bats for independence to Jammu & Kashmir. She owes an explanation to the people

    PAKISTAN THE WASTED TERRORIST STATE DOES IT AGAIN :

    I think we should take note of the timing of the Pakistani attack on our soldiers. It happened after Indians were fooled into the Aman ki Aasha type of stupidities and ended up hosting the cricket team of a terrorist state.

    This leadership of the Congress is as bad as that of IK Gujral. That is fool the nation and attempt to buy peace by mollycoddling a terrorist nation.

    It is just time to drop the Congress… otherwise we will only become weaker and weaker.

    GOVT, WOMEN’S GROUPS PROPOSALS ON NEW RAPE AMENDMENTS:

    (Present punishment for rape is minimum 7 years and maximum life sentence and
    in rarest of cases death penalty)

    1. Punishment for rape accused should be hanging till death, presently the
    death penalty stands only for rape and murder

    2. Chemical castration for accused

    3. Accused must prove that he has not committed the rape, the victim does
    not need to give any proof or even a medical test. The victim only has to
    claim that she has been raped and whoever she named will be arrested
    immediately and not get bail till the case is over, irrespective of how long it goes on

    4. As soon as the victim files the case, regardless of whether it is true or
    false, she will get a minimum of Rs 2 lakh with a first installment of Rs 50,000
    available immediately

    5. A rape victim will get a government job

    6. In a marital dispute, the wife can file a rape charge on her husband along
    with Section 498A of the Indian Penal Code (Husband or relative of husband
    of a woman subjecting her to cruelty) and the husband will have no defence.

    7. There should be no punishment for women making false rape or gang rape charges.

    Shooting attacks in
    the United States have killed an average of 18 people every day since
    the carnage of Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, on
    December 14, 2012, a study shows.

    The study, which was conducted by Slate.com and the anonymous
    twitter user @gundeaths, indicates that there have been over 406 gun
    deaths since the Newtown school shooting.

    Although @gundeaths has tried to report every instance of fatal
    shootings, the data is still incomplete, meaning the number of gun
    victims exceeds the 406 figure.

    In a similar study, the Huffington Post recently chronicled the gun
    deaths since the Sandy Hook massacre, showing that over 100 such
    killings took place within a period of exactly one week after the Newtown incident.

    Out of the 406 victims reported by Slate.com, six were children under the age of 13, and 21 were youths under the age of 17.

    Pundits have repeatedly criticized Washington over lax legislation
    on gun ownership, as the United States is the leading country in the
    world in terms of having the largest number of guns per capita.

    Similar experiences of mass shootings in other countries indicate
    that all those nations have enacted strict gun safety legislation
    following the tragedies and achieved a dramatic reduction in the number
    of gun-related deaths.

    The United States has experienced several mass killings over the
    past six months, including the August 2012 killing spree at a Sikh
    temple, which left seven dead. In Newtown, twenty children and six
    adults were killed.

    After the Sandy Hook massacre, a Gallup poll found that the majority
    of Americans would like stricter gun laws and a ban on high-capacity
    firearms.

    More than 100,000 Americans have signed an online petition to the
    White House, dubbed “We the People,” asking the administration of
    President Barack Obama for a renewed national debate on gun control.

    Ravi and Engrich have made a habit of cutting and pasting anything which is anti Indian and then trying to force a discussion on it and finally attempt to smear all Hindus as being responsible for it.

    Here is a subject… of rape of innocent underage girls in Saudi Arabia which should worry the world. they must be at least 100,000 of them. SO in effect 100,000 rapes daily. Food for thought.

    —————– Quoting NDTV——————

    A 90-year-old Saudi man’s marriage to a 15-year-old girl in exchange for a fat dowry has sparked widespread condemnation from human rights and social media activists in the kingdom.

    The frightened girl locked out her husband refusing him entry to the bedroom for two successive days before fleeing back to her parents’ home, the Al-Arabia reported.

    But the groom insisted that his marriage was “legal and correct”, and that he paid 17,500 US dollars as dowry to marry the girl, who is the daughter of a Yemeni father and Saudi mother.

    Ten years without Saddam Hussein

    07.01.2013

    2013 marks ten years since the beginning of U.S.
    and Britain’s military operations in Iraq
    that ended with the fall of Hussein’s regime. The victory of the allies over the
    poorly armed Iraqi army was not a surprise to most observers. However, the
    retention of the foreign military presence in the country would inevitably lead
    to an increase of popular resistance.

    Ten years after the start of the American
    invasion, The Independent columnist John Kampfner called the war in
    Iraq one of the greatest foreign policy debacles in contemporary history. Today,
    few believe that the overthrow of Saddam Hussein by a foreign intervention that
    caused chaos and death of civilians was justified. We should analyze the
    mistakes of Bush and Blair to develop decision-making mechanisms regarding
    external intervention in emergency situations caused by human rights
    violations.

    No one in the United States is interested in
    starting new wars after the events in Iraq and Afghanistan. According to a
    recent poll conducted by Washington Post-ABC News, the American public
    does not want the use of force for political purposes. However, if Assad uses
    chemical weapons against his own people, the opinion of the Americans may
    change. At the same time, the UK will not be able to fully participate in the
    operation due to the reduction of the military budget, and is likely to be
    limited to the support of the Air Force, if necessary.

    The U.S. maintains military superiority, but
    President Obama knows that, at least for now, any military action would involve
    the risks that would outweigh the frustrations caused by inaction, Kempfner
    continued. The events in Iraq have caused a reaction
    in the Middle East and could be repeated in Syria. On May 1, 2003, the U.S.
    officially announced the completion of military operations in Iraq and victory
    of the coalition forces.

    U.S. President George W. Bush delivered a speech
    aboard the aircraft carrier “Abraham Lincoln,” where he announced the victory of
    the allied forces over the tyranny of Saddam Hussein. In the coming years the
    military were going to continue the search for unconventional weapons and begin
    rebuilding the destroyed infrastructure. One way or the other, the coalition
    forces remained in Iraq indefinitely. In May of 2003, after the completion of
    the brilliant “Operation Iraqi Freedom,” it was difficult to imagine that the
    U.S. military would stay in the country for many years.

    In addition, by
    early 2008, the American contingent was increased to 160 thousand people. At the
    same time, the losses of the coalition forces have significantly increased. In
    one year, 952 U.S. military personnel were killed, and over six thousand were
    injured. At the time it seemed that the Iraq war would never end. However,
    following the election of U.S. President Barack Obama, a phased reduction of the
    military presence in Iraq has begun. By August of 2010, all U.S. combat troops
    have left the country, while the number of military employees still amounted to
    50 thousand people.

    Finally, on December 15 of 2011, the completion
    of the U.S. Army mission in Iraq that lasted nearly nine years was announced.
    The U.S. military disclosed the irretrievable losses of the American army that
    amounted to 4,487 people. If the number of casualties in the ranks of the
    coalition forces is well documented, the number of casualties among civilian and
    insurgents is difficult to calculate due to the lack of reliable official
    sources. All calculations and computations in this regard caused heated debates.
    According to several sources, by July 2010, the number of civilian deaths ranged
    between 97, 461 and 106, 348 people.

    In 2006, Nuri al-Maliki, nominated for the post
    of prime minister by the “United Iraqi Alliance” (UIA), became head of the Iraqi
    government. Parliamentary elections held in March of 2010 secured the second
    place for Maliki’s coalition, which allowed him to stay as prime minister. After
    the war was over, the Shiite al-Maliki government began conducting an
    independent foreign policy without consulting with the U.S. and its allies. Very
    soon, Baghdad was outside of Washington’s sphere of influence.

    Iraq had a strong reaction to Ankara’s unilateral
    actions in northern Iraq, demanding an end to cross-border operations against
    the PKK. In addition, in September of 2012, Iraq proposed its own plan to settle
    the Syrian conflict and opposed any military options. The Iraqi government is
    doing everything possible to recover the status of a regional power lost after
    the fall of the old regime. In the coming years, the role of Baghdad in regional
    affairs will only increase, experts believe.

    Although there is a lot of rape noise (and actual rapes) in india, it is no where near the US on a per-capita basis.

    There are tough laws on rape/violence against women/spouse; with even tougher laws (“violence against women”) being discussed in the congress , although Republicans are against the expanded proposals.

    The vested interests here, like everywhere else, try to minimize the incidents or blame the victim. One of the key areas where they try to protect the perpetrator against victims is the University Athletics. Universities here in the US make zillions of dollars from their footballl/basketball teams/games. There was a case two years ago when a girl student committed suicide at NotreDame, the premier Catholic university in the country/world. She was raped by players in the university football team; the university was siding with the players, even accusing the girl. Another famous university/football team, Penn State, for years tolerated the abuse of minor boys by a well renowned coach. However, everything was revealed last year, with billion dollar lawsuit against the university; with the teams suspended from inter collegiate games for the next few years .

    The total number cases vs population may be fewer in India; but there should be strict laws, strict enforcement. India seems to be ready to implement meaningful laws. The pressure has to be on the legislators to enact; they should not ignore now the daily protests are not there anymore.

    Mr Jagannathan is right on the mark on all his conclusions. India should move away from Pakistan, focus on other more important aspects. Pakistan is a drain, metaphorically as well as effort-wise. Normally, a diaspora longs for the country it left behind. Hence Jews in US long for (and support) Israel, Indians settled all over the world make annual trips to India, Chinese everywhere take pride in China’s ascent.. Shouldn’t it be a natural for Pakistanis, whatever may be the condition when the separation happened, to long for, to cherish the places and customs and friends and neighbourhoods and communities they left behind?

    secular india………………………………………………………………………………

    For 33 years, Deputy Tehsildar Abdul Halim Ansari worked for the state, never
    doubting that it was largely fair, just and honest towards all citizens. That
    perception changed on Sunday, after his 30-year-old son died before his eyes,
    allegedly gunned down by the orders of the same administration that he has
    served all his life.

    Ansari, 58, believes that the police shot his son in cold blood. He says not
    one colleague or senior official from the administration that he has been part
    of all his working life has visited him in his tragedy. He says that he will not
    return to work now; he cannot be part of a “biased” system any more.

    On Sunday afternoon, as a quarrel between a Hindu
    street food vendor and two Muslim youths escalated into riots in communally sensitive
    Dhule town, 325 km north of Mumbai, Ansari received a call from work.

    “One of my colleagues was injured, and I took him to hospital. I was then
    asked to return to office to collect safety gear and head to Machchli Bazaar
    where violence had broken out,” Ansari said.

    “Suddenly, I received a call saying my son had been injured. I rushed to the
    hospital. He gestured to me to say he had been shot and asked for some water,”
    Ansari said. “He died in front of my eyes.”

    Ansari’s son, Hafiz Asif Abdul Halim, was an Islamic
    scholar who had a small provision store outside his home.
    He had gone to Machchli Bazaar to buy the family’s weekly stock of
    vegetables.

    “The police shot him deliberately, he had done nothing,” Ansari said. “I am
    not going to return to work. I can’t work for a biased system.”

    The families of the three other men killed in Sunday’s firing echoed Ansari.
    “How can you explain a 17-year-old being shot twice in the back? How can the
    police shoot a kid who was trying his best to get away from them?” asked Arif
    Patel, the uncle of Rizwan Raees Patel, who studied in class 12.

    Twenty-year-old electrician Imran Ali Qamruddin was supposed to get married
    this May. His brother Asif Ali said Imran had been complaining of pain in the
    right side of his body and had an appointment with a Mumbai doctor who was to
    put him through MRI and CT scans.

    “I know that everyone who losses a family member in such incidents says that
    their relative was not involved in the riots. But I sincerely tell you that
    Imran never involved himself in such activities,” Asif said.

    Asim Shaikh, 24, was an egg vendor who was allegedly shot by police while on
    his weekly round of the market, delivering eggs to shops.

    “It is God’s will. Dhule suffered a lot during the riots of 2008 as well. I
    have faith in Allah and He will give us justice, but I pray that no father
    irrespective of religion should ever have to suffer the death of his young son,”
    Nasir Shaikh, Asim’s father, said

    Police sitting on arrest warrants against Owaisis

    http://articles.timesofindia.indiatimes.com/2013-01-05/hyderabad/36160920_1_akbaruddin-owaisi-mim-leaders-chargesheet

    HYDERABAD: A case (crime number 130/2005) with severe charges including sections 147, 153-A, 353, 290, 295-A, 186, 341, 504 and 506 of the IPC and section 7 of Criminal Law Amendment Act was booked against Akbaruddin and Asaduddin Owaisi along with other MIM leaders at Patancheru police station in April 2005 for obstructing revenue officials from carrying out demolition of a place of worship to facilitate road extension at Muttangi village. Akbaruddin and others were accused of hurling abuses at then Medak district collector Anil Kumar Singhal.

    In this case, Patancheru police have filed a chargesheet and the trial is on. But as both the Owaisi brothers did not appear before the concerned
    court, non-bailable warrants were issued against them two years ago, but till date, the cops did not even execute the warrants. “We tried on several occasions to execute the warrants but the legislators were never available at their house,” was the lame reasoning given by a Patancheru police official.

    In 2006, Hussaini Alam police booked cases against several MIM leaders including Akbaruddin Owaisi (crime number 27/2006) under sections 147, 427, 109, 114, 295, 153-A r/w 149 of the IPC, sections 3 &4 of PDPP Act and Criminal Law Amendment Act in relation to violence near Charminar

    pertaining to protests over anti-Islam cartoons that were

    published in a Danish newspaper. Akbar was charged with inciting the mob to resort to violence through provocative utterances. However, the MIM leaders including Akbar secured anticipatory bail and never spent a single day in jail. Referring to the case, Hussaini Alam inspector J Venkat Reddy said the chargesheet was filed in 2007 and trial began only recently.

    A case was again booked against Akbar under section 506 (criminal intimidation) of the IPC at Punjagutta police station in 2007 for threatening Bangladeshi writer Tasleema Nasreen to never return to Hyderabad again. Giving the status of this case, Punjagutta inspector Tirupati Rao said the chargesheet has been filed and the case is pending trial. Recently, based on SC directions, in October 2012 Chandrayangutta police booked a murder case against Akbaruddin and others in relation to the murder of Ibrahim Bin Yousuf Yafai, who was shot dead at Barkas in April 2011. The case is under investigation.

    So, given this record, people are apprehensive about any proactive police action even in the Adilabad and Nizamabad cases.

    Yes, it is scary.

    There were two “jehadi” conferences in Calicut towards the end of the year. The first one, called “Mujahuddin conference”, conducted in an aptly named maidan “Salafi NAgar” was attended by the central and state ministers. A large number of the attendees were from foreign countries, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan. Immediately after this conference, there was another Sunni conference called “Muscus” (stands for some Muslim blah blah) organized by the extreme fundamentalist Kanthapuram Abubacker Musaliar – state and central ministers attended this too.

    All are in this together.

    However, I am of the opinion that we have to treat corruption, rape etc as another form of Jehadism.

    Prime Minister, Manmohan Singh has taken the killing of two soldiers by mutilation very seriously.

    He is seriously considering inviting Pakistan for a 20-20 cricket match in Siachin, where he is sure Pakistanis will themselves die, unable to bear the -70 degree C cold, so that he can tell the hugely upset Indian public that he has diplomatically killed the Pakis.

    And he is confident that he will win a huge round of applause from our media.

    Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen chief Asaduddin Owaisi has accused the Congress
    government in Andhra Pradesh of being “communal” in charging his younger brother
    Akbaruddin Owaisi with waging war against the state under Section 121 of the
    Indian Penal Code.

    The younger Owaisi, who is a legislator in the state,
    was arrested on Tuesday by the Hyderabad police on charges of delivering a hate
    speech in Adilabad last month. He faces a number of charges including sedition,
    waging or attempting to wage war against the state, promoting enmity between
    different groups on grounds of religion, and for deliberate and malicious acts
    intended to outrage religious feelings.

    Speaking to NDTV, his older
    brother Asaduddin Owaisi, who is a Lok Sabha MP, said, “By booking him under
    section 121, the government has shown its communal bent of mind…the feedback I
    am getting is that people are really angry. They are questioning how the
    government can impose section 121 of the IPC…how the government can say that
    Akbaruddin Owaisi is waging war against the government.”

    just as you carry your father’s anti-India genes, the Owaisi brothers too carry their anti-India father’s genes. Their father fought against India in 1948 as a Razakar, who when defeated by the Indian army, ran underground like a rat.

    These Owaisi brothers too are razakars now waging war against India. They should be given death sentence.

    Shuddhabrata Sengupta

    …………..

    When an upper-caste landlord in a village claims his ‘droit de
    seigneur’ (land-owner’s claim) with a Dalit woman, it is not rape, it is a yagya, a time honoured shastric ritual. When husbands persuade minor wives on their ‘suhaag raat’ with a few disciplinary measures that leave them with black eyes and sore limbs, it is not rape, it is the carrying
    out of an Upanishadic injunction. When swamijis, babajis,
    acharyas and prachaaraks have their way with ignorant and naabaalig
    shishyaas, it is not rape, it is the partaking of the naivedyam of a woman’s body. It is the realisation of a pushp ki abhilasha, even if the pushp gets pushed around a little bit in the process.Yo-Yo Honey Singh, that other eminent Yug-Purush echoed Shri Mohan Bhagwat when he asserted in his prayer, C***t Vol.1, that he would cure the waywardness of the Indian woman’s sex organs by strictly traditional, bharatiya and shastric methods.Yo Yo Mohan Bhagwat.

    One of the better administered states in India. Surprisingly, most of thenm are BJP ruled states.
    ….. That is why it is good news that the CSI-Nihilent award for effective implementation of Centralised Online Real-time Electronic (Core) PDS (Public Distribution System), based on smart cards, was given to the Chhattisgarh state government. It is a worthwhile natural transition to build on recent improvements in the performance of its PDS and take it to the next level by enacting the Chhattisgarh Food Security Act, 2012.
    ….Chhattisgarh is taking responsibility for better implementation of the PDS, and this shows strong leadership, which is commendable. The state is working closely with local bodies to achieve greater successes. Responsible governance with greater collaboration between the Centre and state for managing resources will enhance performance and help fulfil common goals.

    Yet another bloody day in Pakistan where two suicide bombers exploded killing 115 people.
    It is tick-tick-tick ..everyday 10, 20, 30….if not on Shias, then on Sunnis; if not on Sufis then on Shias….there is no government; even army cannot control. So, in an environment like this, we have to grin and bear the LOC incursions; or be willing to go in and take care of these terrorists. Obviously, we cannot go in.

    But there are things we can do to prevent suicide bombs within the country. The Razarkar brothers – Owaisis – have been exhorting an threatening. Both the brothers implied of an armed Jehadism, “third wave of attacks”, “killing of Modi”, “absurdity of Hindu gods” etc. We have let them continue this rant; even within the halls of the parliament. Pretty soon somebody is going to explode in a crowded place; and quite possibly they will be “motivated” by these brothers. .

    Extremist Muslims of Kerala organized two large conferences in December. One, called the “Mujahuddin” conference , conducted in “Salafi Nagar” had attendees from Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and other Islamic countries. The inaugurator and the closer were prominent Saudi Arabian clerics. Several central and state ministers attended this conference and proclaimed our secularism,

    The other conference, “markaz” has been meeting every year. organized and led by the extremist Kanthapuram Abubacker Musaliyar (who is supposed to possess the Prophet’s hair; who is building the largest mosque in India (or may be the world0 in Kozhikode) – one of the main events in this conference is the prize distribution/recognition of madrasa students who can recite all of Quran fully from memory. The central and state ministers were present congratulating these boys.

    We better be vigilant; our government, as they have shown in the corruption and rape situations, does not care about the country. Let us treat corruption, rape etc as another form of Jehadism. In fact, a bureaucrat siphoning of crores and crores of money meant for rural health is a worse terrorist/Jehadist than a Muslim boy who explodes at the urgings of the Owaisi brothers

    AHMEDABAD: Industrialists and who’s who of Indian corporate world gathered at the Vibrant Gujarat Summit 2013 in Gandhinagar on Friday. This time, however, every speaker lauded chief minister Narendra Modi but shied away from joining in the “Modi for PM” chorus. In a big departure from the past summits, none of the speakers, barring Mukesh Ambani of RIL and Hari Bhartia of Jubilant Lifesciences, committed investments in the state. The investment sentiment will likely get clear only at the conclusion of the summit. Last time, Gujarat had attracted investment proposals worth Rs 20 lakh crore.

    Congratulating Narendra Modi on his hat-trick in Gujarat Assembly elections, Godrej group chairman and CII president Adi Godrej said it was the result of continuing policies and commendable leadership. He appreciated the stress on Knowledge that Vibrant Summit will focus on this time and expressed hope that Gujarat and India will emerge as Knowledge hubs of the world.

    Speaking at the inauguration function of the Vibrant Gujarat summit 2013, US-India Business Council (USIBC) president Ron Summers said: “How many countries or states can boast of double digit growth in the depressed global environment.” But Gujarat has provided growth by policies and able leadership, he added. He ended his speech with slogan: “Jai Hind”.

    Anil Dhirubhai Ambani Group chairman Anil Ambani hailed chief minister Narendra Modi as the King among Kings and requested the audience for a standing ovation for chief minister Narendra Modi. The audience readily relented as Ambani went on to say Modi dreams with his eyes open to ground realities and is a big magnet for attracting investments to Gujarat.

    Lauding Gujarati entrepreneurship, Mahindra and Mahindra group chairman Anand Mahindra said: “I don’t know what’s in the soil of Gujarat that makes such successful entrepreneurs.” Breaking his speech into Hindi, he said: Gujaratis are free from fear of failure and perhaps there lies their success in business ventures.” He ended his speech on a high regard for Gujarat: “We will soon have a Gujarat model of growth in China.”

    RIL chairman Mukesh Ambani said Modi has determination to transform dreams into reality. In a lighter vein, he said: “I have attended all the summits held so far, so it 100 per cent presence from me.” He further said RIL is first a Gujarati company, then an Indian company and later a global company. He committed huge investment in mobile telephony in Gujarat and said RIL will invest Rs 1 lakh crore in Gujarat over the next few years.

    Hari Bhartia of Jubilant Lifesciences committed investments worth Rs 1500 crore over the next two years. This will be over and above Rs 2000 crore so far, he said during his speech at the inaugural function of Vibrant Summit 2013.

    This puts things into a much better perspective as to the present economic situation…
     
    Lesson # 1:
    * U.S. Tax revenue:         $    2,170,000,000,000
    * Fed budget:                   $    3,820,000,000,000
    * New debt:                      $    1,650,000,000,000
    * National debt:                $  16,271,000,000,000
    * Recent budget cuts:     $          38,500,000,000
     
    Let’s now remove 8 zeros and pretend it’s a household budget:
    * Annual family income:                                          $   21,700
    * Money the family spent:                                       $   38,200
    * New debt on the credit card:                                $   16,500
    * Outstanding balance on the credit card:              $ 162,710
    * Total budget cuts so far:                                         $      385

    Got It ???

    OK now…
    Lesson # 2:  
     
    Here’s another way to look at the Debt Ceiling:
    Let’s say, you come home from work and find there has been a sewer backup in your neighborhood…
    And your home has sewage all the way up to your ceilings.
     
    What do you think you should do … … …

    The sixth Vibrant Gujarat Investors Summit kick started in the state capital on Friday as it saw top industry stalwarts including Tata Group retired chairman Ratan Tata, Ambani brothers, Adi Godrej and Anand Mahindra.
    The event was inaugurated in the morning in the presence of
    industry leaders along with a number of foreign diplomats including Britain high commissioner, US consul general and over 1500 foreign delegates coming from over 80 countries.
    RIL chairman Mukesh Ambani while addressing the gathering pledged investment to the tune of Rs. 1 lakh crore in next three years.
    Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi is used to praise but on Friday the accolades came from some of India’s richest businessmen.The three-day summit, which seeks to woo investors to Gujarat, is being attended by top Indian industrialists, representatives of foreign companies and foreign envoys. Let me attempt to paint another picture: October 2, 1869, Porbandar, Gujarat – the birth of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, the father of the nation October 31, 1875, Nariyal, Gujarat – the birth of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, India’s man of steel December 28, 1932, Chorwad, Gujarat – the birth of Dhirubhai Ambani, India’s greatest entrepreneur and September 17, 1950, Vadnagar, Gujarat – the birth of Narendra Modi,” he said.
    Today people are talking about China model of development in Gujarat but day is not far when people will talk about Gujarat model of growth in China,” said Anand Mahindra, of the Mahindra and Mahindra group.
    UK India Business Council (UKIBC) chair Patricia Hewitt, whose country ended decade-long boycott of the state imposed in the aftermath of 2002 communal riots in October last year, lauded Gujarat for having maintained a near double digit growth rate in the last ten years which was more than that of China.
    Ron Sommers, who represented US India Business Council, called Gujarat’s progress “stunning”.”Progress of Gujarat is stunning. It has set a new benchmark not only in India but across other countries in the world because Chief Minister Narendra Modi has shown that progress trumps politics. Gujarat has achieved double digit growth because of stability and sustainability,” he said.
    Konstantin Markelov, chairperson of the Regional Government of Astrakhan, a province in Russia, congratulated Modi on his electoral success and wished him good luck for “victory at the national level”.
    Now, Rao, turn green from envy or from religious fervor.

    moharr ,gopi and pankaj…………………………………………………………………………………………………………….भड़काऊ भाषण देने के आरोप में जेल में बंद मजलिस-ए-इत्तेहादुल
    मुस्लिमीन के नेता अकबरुद्दीन ओवैसी की रिहाई के लिए अब हैदराबाद के कुछ मंदिरों
    में पूजा की जा रही है.

    हैदराबाद में अकबरुद्दीन ओवैसी के विधानसभा क्षेत्र चान्द्रायन गुटटा के दो
    मंदिरों में उनके लिए पूजा आयोजित की गई और एक हवन भी किया गया.

    40 वर्षीय अकबरुद्दीन इस चुनाव क्षेत्र से अब तक तीन बार चुने जा चुके हैं.

    इलाके में रहनेवाली अनीता का कहना था, “जब हमने अपने विधायक को बताया की बार-बार
    कहने के बावजूद सरकार इन मंदिरों की हालत पर कोई ध्यान नहीं दे रही, तो अकबरुद्दीन
    ने इन मंदिरों की मरम्मत करवाई और शेड बनवाए. अब हम इस मुश्किल समय में उनके लिए
    प्रार्थना कर रहे हैं.”

    हाल के कुछ वर्षों में मजलिस ने अपना दायरा फैलाया है और हिन्दुओं, विशेषकर
    दलितों में उसकी लोकप्रियता बढ़ी है.

    हाल ही में पार्टी ने महाराष्ट्र के नांदेड में नगरपालिका के चुनाव में दलितों
    के साथ गठबंधन किया और 11 सीटें जीतीं.

    हैदराबाद नगरपालिका में मजलिस के 44 सदस्यों में सात हिन्दू हैं. पार्टी ने
    विधानसभा चुनाव में भी तीन हिन्दू प्रत्याशी खड़े किये थे लेकिन उनमें कोई नहीं जीत
    पाया.

    अनीता, स्थानीय नागरिक

    अकबरुद्दीन ओवैसी के विधानसभा चुनाव क्षेत्र चान्द्रायन गुटटा के जिन दो मंदिरों
    - मैसम्मा मंदिर और भूलाक्ष्मी मंदिर – में पूजा और हवन हुए हैं उन की मरम्मत का
    काम ओवैसी ने ही करवाया था.

    इधर सैंकड़ों मुसलमानों ने भी हैदराबाद की मशहूर युसुफ़ैन दरगाह में जमा हो कर
    अकबरुद्दीन के लिए दुआएं मांगी हैं.

    साथ ही नगर की कई मस्जिदों में भी आयोजन किए गए. शुक्रवार के अवसर पर भी उनकी
    रिहाई की अपील की गई है.

    जुमा की नमाज़ के लिए बड़े पैमाने पर मुसलामानों के जमावड़े के मद्देनज़र हैदराबाद
    के पुराने शहर में सुरक्षा प्रबंध किए गए हैं.

    अकबरुद्दीन ने 12 दिसंबर को एक जनसभा में विवादस्पद भाषण दिया था. उन पर हिन्दू
    समुदाय की धार्मिक भावनाओं को ठेस पहुंचाने के आरोप लगे हैं. दो संप्रदायों के बीच
    नफरत को बढ़ावा देने और देश के खिलाफ युद्ध जैसे गंभीर आरोपों में मामले दर्ज हो
    चुके हैं.

    अकबरुद्दीन के भाषण की व्यापक पैमाने पर निंदा हुई है. लेकिन हैदराबाद सहित
    आंध्र प्रदेश के कई स्थानों और पडोसी राज्यों कर्नाटक और महाराष्ट्र में उनकी
    गिरफ़्तारी के खिलाफ प्रदर्शन भी हुए हैं.

    भड़काऊ भाषण देने के आरोप में अकबरुद्दीन इस समय 14 दिन की न्यायिक हिरासत में
    आदिलाबाद की ज़िला जेल में हैं जहां उन्हें कैदी नंबर 7546 मिला है और उन्हें आम
    कैदी की तरह रखा गया है. उन्हें जेल में बना खाना दिया जा रहा है.

    उनकी पार्टी के नेताओं का कहना है कि जेल में ओवैसी को कई तरह की दिक्कतें हो
    रही हैं. इस बीच अकबरुद्दीन के बड़े भाई और मजलिस के अध्यक्ष असदुद्दीन ओवैसी ने कहा
    है की अकबरुद्दीन को कांग्रेस सरकार और भारतीय जनता पार्टी ने अपनी साज़िश का निशाना
    बनाया है इसीलिए उन पर विद्रोह, देश के खिलाफ युद्ध और षडयंत्र जैसे गंभीर आरोप
    लगाए गए हैं.

    उन्होंने कहा, “हमें अदालत पर पूरा भरोसा है और अदालत अकबरुद्दीन को बरी
    करेगी.”

    is there a similarity between Islamists and Virus/ Cancer??
    Both hide behind normalcy but do their dirty work.
    One set hides behind, human rights, free speech, justice and what not-while working full time against these ideals. Cancer hides behind normal cells to escape punishment by medicines and radiation. Newer treatment is required to deal with both of them.

    Of
    Togadias and Owaisis
    By Mahtab Alam

    Akbaruddin Owaisi, an MLA of
    Andhra Pradesh Legislative Assembly, who
    belongs to a Hyderabad-based
    political party All India
    Majlis-e-Ittihad al-Muslimin, better known as MIM,
    and its floor
    leader in the Assembly made an inflammatory speech against
    Hindus on
    24th December 2012 at a public meeting in Adilabad District.
    The
    speech attracted widespread condemnation by Muslim activists,
    rightly
    so, apart from left, liberal individuals and organizations.
    Dr.
    Zafarul Islam Khan, President, All India Muslim Majlis e
    Mushawarat
    (AIMMM), an umbrella body of prominent Indian Muslim
    organizations
    termed it ‘a hate and rash speech’ arguing, ‘words that should
    never
    have been uttered by a responsible person, let alone a
    political
    leader, were used’. Shabnam Hashmi, a prominent social activist
    and
    who has been relentlessly working on the issue of minority
    rights
    registered an FIR in Delhi against Owaisi stating, ‘the whole
    speech
    is highly objectionable, inflammatory and against the values of
    our
    constitution, democracy and secular values’. Similarly, FIRs were
    also
    registered in the State invoking section 295 A (for deliberate
    and
    malicious acts intended to outrage religious feelings) and 153
    A
    (promoting enmity between different groups) of Indian Penal Code
    (IPC).
    Owaisi was finally arrested on Tuesday (8th January) and sent
    to 14-day
    judicial custody.
    However, there was a small section of Muslims, mostly
    individuals, who
    held this as an illustration of the ‘double standards of
    civil society
    and state machinery’. The crux of their argument was, that
    while
    governments take speedy actions and act in a haste in the cases
    where
    Muslims are involved even in petty crimes, criminals belonging to
    the
    majority community roam free despite being involved in all sorts
    of
    serious crimes such as communal carnage, mass murders, looting
    and
    rapes, let alone the cases of hate speech. While on the surface,
    these
    allegations might appear as a desperate attempt to defend
    communalists
    belonging to the Muslim community – and indeed some of them may
    be-the
    fact is that these claims are not that far removed from
    reality.
    Sample this. Praveen Togadia, Vishwa Hindu Parishad’s
    (VHP)
    international working President, during his recent visit to
    Hyderabad
    in December last year, made an equally inflammatory and
    communal
    speech while addressing a press conference in the city. The
    VHP
    president at the press conference on the issue of controversial
    Bhagya
    Lakshmi Mandir- Charminar threatened Muslims by saying that ‘VHP
    will
    convert Hyderabad into Ayodhya if Hindus are not allowed to
    perform
    Puja’. The simple fact is that Hindus have never been stopped
    from
    performing Puja. He further thundered the VHP would teach Muslims
    of
    Hyderabad a lesson that they would never forget. Following this, a
    few
    cases have been registered against him but the government is yet
    to
    act. It is well known of course that this is not the first time when
    he
    has made such a speech. In fact, several such cases are pending
    against
    Togadia, not only in Hyderabad but in different parts of the
    country; and the
    police and the governments have never acted against
    him.
    And Togadia is
    not a solitary soldier: there is a veritable contingent
    of Togadias whose
    prime work is hate mongering and inciting violence,
    especially in situations
    where there are higher chances of communal
    disturbance and violence. It has
    become almost a routine for these
    forces to fuel violence in name of
    protecting their religion,
    religious tenets and identity or interests of
    their fellow
    religionists and people. Ashok Singhal, Adityanath Yogi, Uma
    Bharti,
    Sadhvi Ritambhara and Raj/Udhav Thackeray to name a few. What
    is
    strange, though often understood, that they draw their supports
    from
    political parties of all hues. While certified communal
    political
    parties like BJP and Shiv Sena lent them open support, self-
    appointed
    secular parties like Congress and Samajwadi Party would never
    bother
    to book them according to the law of the land despite ample
    evidence
    being available. Hence, these cases of selective action only
    prove
    that our governments utilize double standards for crimes of
    similar
    nature, for criminals belonging to minority and majority
    communities.
    Varun Gandhi is the sole exception, and there are indications
    already
    that the UP government may go slow on him, after he submitted
    an
    application for quashing of the case against him.
    It was interesting
    also to see how the Owaisi saga played out in the
    electronic media. Watching
    these programmes, one would think that
    Owaisi was the originator of hate
    speech in India, and not simply one
    among the many who blight public
    discourse through their venom. TV
    anchors after anchor summoned ‘Muslim’
    politicians from a range of
    political parties daring them to condemn Owaisi.
    Would the Congress
    Party spokesperson be ever asked to condemn Togadia – or
    Rithambara or
    Uma -as a Hindu or as someone opposed to their politics or
    ideology?
    Why then this rush to seek declarations from Muslim politicians
    as
    Muslims? Coming just months after all TV channels were paying
    obeisance
    to Bal Thackeray, whose political career was built on hate
    and its
    articulation, the self righteousness of the various channel
    heads is only
    amusing.
    So now that Owaisi is thankfully arrested, the larger question
    is:
    what about Singhals, Yogis, Bhartis and Thackerays? Will they ever
    be
    arrested and sent to jail like Owaisi for their umpteen numbers
    of
    crimes? This must be answered; at least to show that we as
    a
    constitutionally declared secular country – considered to be the
    world’s
    largest democracy – do not practice two different sets of
    rules for majority
    and minority. Remember, mere lip service like in
    the past would not work this
    time as it would only further the
    argument of the State practicing double
    standards.
    Is anyone listening

    The tragedy is that like viruses, present congress is using name of Congress, Gandhis etc, while in actions it is miles away from original Congress. That congress had leaders/ statesman of international stature, while present congress is a bunch of mediocres, looters and rapists.It is in cahoot with criminals like Mulayam, mayawati, Laloo, and DMK, without an iota of shame.
    it is confident that governance means winning election and to remain in power through all foul means. Is this governance? Is this congress of yore?? Loud no. it has borrowed few words like, secularism-most communal party-poverty removal- removal of their own and sycophants’ poverty for 7 generation- and compromise with criminals, just to save the government. Ideals gaye tel lene.
    Only one Lotus is visible in this mud- Modi.

    CM has primacy in lokayukta appointment: Supreme Court

    http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/india/CM-has-primacy-in-lokayukta-appointment-Supreme-Court/articleshow/17990837.cms

    NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court on Friday ruled that the chief minister, and not the chief justice of the high court, will have primacy in selecting a person for the post of lokayukta or upa-lokayukta if the state law includes the CM in the consultation process carried out before the governor makes the appointment.

    Just a week ago, in the Gujarat lokayukta appointment case, the court had ruled that the advice of the chief justice of the high court would have primacy. The Gujarat law did not expressly include the chief minister in the consultation process for selection of lokayukta.

    Rules for Gujarat and rest of India are different?

    Wahabis/Salafis are quite active in India, funding extremism very similar to Muslim on Muslim attacks in Pakistan. Forward thinking, progressive Maulavis have been killed in Tamil Nadu and, Kerala; with CBI investigation leading to regressive salafi factions. I am 75% sure, like many other things, our government does not have a clue on the Salafi extremism – at present confined to ideological brainwashing, but soon will potentially move to street killings like in Pakistan – being funded and spread by KSA operatives. Or, even if they have a clue, they do not want to act upon lest a voting block is offended.

    engrich Reply:

    IN JULY 1917, a
    26-year-old Bhimrao Ambedkar boarded the SS Kaiser-i-Hind in
    Marseilles, France, heading back to Bombay after his doctoral studies at
    the London School of Economics were rudely interrupted by the sudden
    drying-up of the scholarship funds he had been granted by the Maharaja
    of Baroda. He booked his luggage, including a vast library of books
    acquired in London and before that in New York, where he had been a
    Masters’ student at Columbia University from 1913 to 1916, on a separate
    cargo steamer, and insured his belongings with Thomas Cook and Co. With
    the hostilities of World War I still raging in the Mediterranean, the
    steamer was torpedoed by the Germans. By the time Ambedkar reached India
    in early August, he had lost his entire library.

    The young man’s
    woes were only just beginning. Using the insurance money he received
    from Thomas Cook to pay for his passage from Bombay northwards, he
    proceeded to Baroda. There he was hired as a probationer at the
    Accountant General’s Office attached to Sayaji Rao Gaekwad III, his
    erstwhile benefactor, and discovered that no one would rent him a room
    or house because of his untouchable status. After much difficulty,
    poignantly described in an autobiographical fragment of 1935-36 titled Waiting for a Visa,
    Ambedkar ended up at a decrepit and gloomy Parsi inn, bribing the
    caretaker and falsely entering himself under a Parsi name in the
    register. Late at night after he returned from work, he had no one to
    talk to. The establishment had no electric or oil lamps, and was plunged
    in darkness and solitude, both of which Ambedkar found terrifying.
    Night after night, he borrowed books from the library, got the caretaker
    to bring up a hurricane lamp for him, and tried to banish his fear and
    despondency. He writes:

    “I
    felt that I was in a dungeon, and I longed for the company of some
    human being to talk to. But there was no one. In the absence of the
    company of human beings, I sought the company of books, and read and
    read. Absorbed in reading, I forgot my lonely condition. But the
    chirping and flying about of the bats, which had made the hall their
    home, often distracted my mind and sent cold shivers through me —
    reminding me of what I was endeavouring to forget, that I was in a
    strange place under strange conditions.”

    He was eventually
    discovered and thrown out of the inn, and had to leave Baroda, but
    Ambedkar overcame this — and every other — obstacle and humiliation, to
    become not just a political figure of great consequence, but also one of
    the most erudite and scholarly of India’s founders: a man with multiple
    academic degrees, a writer of many books, a maker of the Indian
    Constitution, and the propounder of a new school of Buddhism, the
    Navayana. By the time of his death in December 1956, Ambedkar was surely
    among the most learned politicians of his generation. His last book, The Buddha and His Dhamma, published
    posthumously in 1957, necessitated him combing the Buddhist canon,
    acquainting himself with numerous sectarian traditions of Buddhism
    throughout Asia, and even teaching himself to read Pali, the classical
    language of Buddhism. In a completely distinct dimension, Ambedkar’s
    engagement with American pragmatist philosophy and liberal thought
    through the figure of his teacher and mentor John Dewey (1859-1952) is a
    subject about which we still know very little.

    Bibliophiles Both Nehru and Ambedkar were voracious readers

    The
    venality and bathos of contemporary Indian politics make it hard to
    imagine a time when the country’s leaders were well-read, thoughtful,
    and acquainted with a vast world of ideas. But hardly a hundred years
    ago, India’s political landscape was populated by minds of a very
    different calibre. Mohandas Gandhi wrote his revolutionary tract, Hind Swaraj, in November 1909, on board the shipKildonian Castle, over
    the 11 days it took to sail from London to Johannesburg. He wrote in a
    frenzy of inspiration, never pausing, completing the manuscript with his
    left hand when his right hand became tired. Gandhi probably had no
    access to any reading materials on that journey, nor would the epiphanic
    burst of writing have allowed him to consult sources if there had been
    any at hand. But this did not stop him from publishing a list of what he
    called Some Authorities as an appendix to the English version
    of his book, telling his readers, in his characteristic voice of a
    hectoring schoolmaster, that a variety of works by Tolstoy (The Slavery of Our Times), Ruskin (Unto This Last), Thoreau (On the Duty of Civil Disobedience), Plato (Defence and Death of Socrates), Mazzini (Duties of Man), Dadabhai Naoroji (Poverty and Un-British Rule in India) and Henry Maine (Village Communities) were “recommended for perusal to follow up the study of the foregoing”.

    Gandhi was no less strict with himself than he was with his followers: he discovered the Bhagavad Gita at
    a very young age (under 20 years), and in midlife began reading it
    every week from start to finish. By about 1930, he admitted to not just
    reading the Gita every single day but also attempting to
    “enforce the meaning in my own conduct for an unbroken period of 40
    years”. A dedication to the practices of reading, reflection and
    interpretation — coeval with a profound exercise in ethical
    self-discipline — that informed Gandhi’s relationship with a text like
    the Gita,seems almost preposterous from our vantage. “I have
    called it my spiritual dictionary,” he wrote, “for it has never failed
    me in distress”. For men like Gandhi and Ambedkar, a certain kind of
    book could be solace, compass and anchor in the very midst of the
    hurly-burly of politics. They turned to particular books and engaged
    deeply with them not because they were trying in a self-conscious way to
    be intellectuals, but because in their understanding, political life —
    for it to be sustainable over decades of hard struggle — had to have
    active and contemplative dimensions in equal measure.

    Jawaharlal Nehru was able to write The Discovery of India in
    jail partly because his friends and family brought him books to work
    with. But even for him to have asked for these, he had to have already
    been familiar with not just Indian but also European history,
    philosophy, literature and religion. Evidence of his eclectic tastes and
    ecumenical habits as a reader and thinker is everywhere to be found in
    his book: from Bertrand Russell to Friedrich Nietzsche, from Plato to
    Kautilya, from Shakespeare to Kalidasa, from George Bernard Shaw to
    Marcel Proust, he knew or knew of every significant ancient and modern
    source necessary to answer the tough question he posed to himself and to
    his compatriots: “What is this India?”

    In a recent Nehru Memorial
    Lecture delivered in New Delhi in November 2012, the Burmese resistance
    leader Daw Aung San Suu Kyi described in moving words her own years
    spent in house-arrest under the powerful military junta, when she in
    turn read Nehru, and tried to learn from his descriptions of his
    experiences in surviving imprisonment and in nationalist struggle alike.
    As the daughter of the assassinated General Aung San, she had
    personally grown up knowing Nehru in India in the early 1960s, but when
    she returned to The Discovery of India in the 1990s, Nehru now
    spoke to her not as a friend of her parents but as one freedom fighter
    to another, across time and across national boundaries. Through his
    voice she found her own.

    THE GREAT Italian Marxist Antonio Gramsci (1891-1937), author of The Prison Notebooks, used
    to organise classes in philology for fellow-prisoners while jailed by
    Mussolini’s Fascist regime for most of the last years of his short life.
    The figure of the popular political leader as the solitary dissident
    intellectual, reading and writing in some oppressive jail words that
    signify liberty, is a recurrent one in the 20th century — again, a
    remote and unlikely figure in the garish vacuous cacophony of our
    hyper-mediatised political culture. Oddly, apart from Machiavelli, Marx
    and Lenin, Gramsci and Nehru seem to have had a shared interest in the
    early 20th century French philosopher Henri Bergson, an index perhaps as
    much of their common erudition as of Nehru’s cosmopolitanism, the ease
    with which he navigated the conceptual worlds of east and west alike.
    Nearly 70 years after Independence, Gandhi, Nehru and Tagore remain
    among the most consistently popular Indian authors in the English
    language, and Ambedkar is fast entering those ranks as well.

    ‘The
    venality and bathos of contemporary Indian politics make it hard
    to imagine a time when the country’s leaders were well-read’

    India’s
    founding generations teemed with readers and writers, thinkers and
    doers, lawyers and theologians, poets and philosophers.

    For a
    nation created by people as well-read and well-spoken as Rabindranath
    Tagore, Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, Maulana Azad, Sri Aurobindo, Allama
    Iqbal, Bal Gangadhar Tilak and Sarojini Naidu, it’s difficult to fathom
    or forgive both the bankruptcy of ideas and ignorance of the past that
    seems to afflict our political classes today. It might be worth bearing
    in mind, however, that in a democracy, the faults and flaws of our
    leaders are, alas, nothing but a mirror held up to the shortcomings that
    are all too often our own

    Karnataka Hindus Training Tigers to Stop eating COW Meat

    By Arun Dev, TNN | Jan 11, 2013, 10.49 PM IST

    BANGLAHORE: The Karnataka Regional Commission for Education on Friday accused the government of inserting Hindutva ideologies into the social science textbooks of state syllabus.

    Sr M Genevieve, secretary of the commission, said the National Curriculum Framework of the National Council for Education Research and Training ( NCERT) states that it’s important that all regions and social groups be able to relate to the textbooks. This is not the case in this state.

    “These textbooks talk about over 50 temples in Karnataka. The contributions of other communities have been sidelined. The famous poem Punyakoti (Class VIII Hindi textbooks) was tweaked. It showed a tiger taking an oath that consumption of cow’s meat is a bad thought, and henceforth, he won’t eat it. What are we trying to teach the children,” she asked.

    She said that for the past eight months, the organization has been demanding change in the syllabus as per the National Curriculum Framework. “There have been multiple meetings with the state government officials, but there has been no response,” she said.

    The commission’s demands include withdrawal of textbooks introduced
    during 2012, the social science textbook for Class V and Class VIII and Hindi
    book.

    The commission also objected to the gender disparities in textbooks.

    “We have many women who have achieved a lot in the field of art and culture but our textbooks have confined them to single lines while their male counterparts are glorified. In the Class V textbook, under the section of literature, of 26 people mentioned, only four are women. Even the pictures show the men doing prominent work and women doing jobs,” said a panel member.

    Sad state if leadership in India :

    There seems an eagerness in the weakest leaders and media people of INdia to absolve Pakistan once again of torture and war mongering.

    Shame on these anti nationals.

    Under UPA, we have already missed the chance of pushing Pakistan onto the road of final oblivion. Instead there was a competition to forgive it and then beleive that it will change.

    My firm belief– from the the two months I spent there as an auditor of a chocolate major– that hatred of India in 70% of Pakistanis is so deep that we should never expect anything good from them.

    Instead what we will get is a false smile on the face and then a back stab with a knife. For them the killing of an Indian– soldier or civilian– is just the end of a kafir. The torture and mutilation of the soldier would have only given most Pakistanis a perverse pleasure.

    His strategy is similar to the one I encountered in Pakistan in 80’s when Cadbury sent me there. Well right from my landlord in karachi to my persistent driver… all were convinced that I need to be converted to feel the power of true enlightenment in Islam.

    All gave lurid stories of the rot in HInduism and CHristianity. My Keralite Christian colleague was also allured,

    Of course they were good people in the office who laughed this off. But the mindset is same with Ravi and engrich. Something so sordidly wrong with Hindus and Christians that they need to be converted.

    ‘Most Dalit rapes in Haryana go unreported’

    A report by a group of organisations on consecutive incidents of rape of Dalit women in Haryana have claimed that most such cases go unreported

    Asha Kowtal, General Secretary of the All India Dalit Mahila Adhikar Manch (AIDMAM), said: “Most of these cases go unreported due to the lack of a functional SC/ST Commission in the state that would take up the issues with the state government.”

    “The women rights bodies across the states in the country have been demanding a system of speedy redressal of such cases to bring the culprits to justice, and a counseling system for the victims since such cases involve a lot of mental trauma for the victims and the families” said Prasad Srivella of National Dalit Movement for Justice.

    Releasing the report, Prasad said that in Haryana the lack of justice for such cases have led to a sense of panic among the neighbours of a victims in the affected districts. “It was seen that the girls in the area didn’t want to come out and speak-up due to the fear of a backlash against them, and the authorities rarely took stringent actions against the accused,” said Ajita Rao a women rights activist.

    They have mistaken cheating & manipulations for entrepreneurship.
    Non-marvadi Indian can succeed in business outside India but not in India.
    Sabeer Bhatia and others in Silicon Valley are great examples. Non-marvadi
    Indian can succeed in Indian Business with Non-Indian clientele. Infosys &
    other big & small software companies are live examples. However, a
    Non-Marvadi cannot succeed in Indian business Environment whereas a Marvadi can
    easily succeed with their competence in manipulatuions and machinations without
    really having the real competence, technical or otherwise. Right from adultering
    milk & other food items in a grocery shop, duping customers with
    non-standard items for branded items, to the big industrialists evading taxes, a
    Marwadi is involved everywhere in cheating this Nation.
    They have mastered the trick of greasing palms of ever greedy
    politicians & bureaucrats to ensure the unethical & illegal businesses
    & methods are ignored by the people in Power. Business are shared within
    their community irrespective of cost and quality to ensure firm hold on business
    & economy with the Marvadi’s. Every attempt is made to kill the
    entrepreneurship from other communities. Businesses given to Non-marvadi’s will
    suffer Non-payment OR late payments to the point of closure of the others
    business. Employees in Marvadi firms are treated like slaves. The most
    qualified, intelligent and effective of the Employees have to work under low
    educated marvadi, appointed by the owner, as their boss, who keeps on learning
    from them and bossing over them at the same time, without giving exposure, value
    addition, or avenue to move ahead in the company. Once a person enters a Marvadi
    company, his learning stops and has to remain clerk forever, even if he is a
    Professional. With no addition in knowledge, he cannot venture outside the
    company and has to live a life of stagnated pond. Marvadi’s are destroying the
    intelligent and educated middle class just because this class is entrapped in
    home loans and other such loans. Earlier they cheated people by lending money at
    exorbitant interests and grabbed farming lands & other properties worth
    crores of rupees. A parallel economy with black money is run by the same
    community

    The unethical ways of Marvadi’s are destroying people
    and the Nation. Gujju’s are aptly represented by people like Harshad Mehta and
    Ketan Parekh. Recent killings of innocent men, women & children from
    minorities can give a peep into the minds of Gujju’s where they are in majority.
    The same Gujju’s have driven out Maharashtrians from Mumbai to the far outskirts
    of Mumbai. Mumbai has been grabbed by Gujju’s. It is only the Parsi’s who do
    business in India very ethically and with a lot of social commitment &
    ecological responsibility. They have tremendous respect from every Indian.

    Brahmins blocked the education for others ensuring no competition.
    Brahmins have hold on Educational Institutions, Software companies,
    administrative jobs in Govt. & Lucrative posts in Private companies. Once a
    Brahmin enters an Organistaion, he slowly makes it the Brahmin Organisation, by
    employing everyone from his own caste. Where are others? They are peons, clerks,
    vegetable vendors, street cleaners, farm labourers, construction labourers, low
    level workers in factories and doing rest of the menial jobs. The suppression of
    masses continues in one form or the other.

    These three communities are
    the ardent supporters of BJP & the RSS. They are blinded by their self
    interests, least bothered about the Nation. Indulging in the superiority on
    Indian masses forever, they have been curse to the Indian masses.

    The new found mantra of Hindutva was a master
    stroke to deflect the attention of masses from the real issue of disparity &
    in equality to the non-issue of religion. Pitting one religion against another
    OR one caste against another are their strategic moves. It is indeed barbaric to
    fight each other just because the other is born in different religion or
    different caste. But that serves the purpose of these communities. Indian
    economy, businesses and education is in their hands. The masses should realise
    the intentions of the saffronites whose real masters are in this troika and
    instead of indulging in barbaric fights we should make every effort to uplift
    the masses to dizzying heights to be equal if not more equal to this troika, who
    have inflicted the greatest of injuries to the masses and this
    Nation.

    When
    you are a billionaire, you can afford it all. And when you can afford
    it all, you must buy it all. At least that’s what the men in our list
    do:

    1. Prince Alwaleed bin Talal

    The Saudi Arabian billionaire ranks among the biggest spenders of the
    world. But his possessions are only a small part of what his net worth
    is. His most ambitious buy: Airbus A380, which costs in excess of $300
    million.

    2. Joseph Lau

    The Hong Kong business magnate doesn’t hold back when it comes to buying gifts for his dear ones or just buying a piece of luxury for himself. His most ambitious buy: Boeing 747-8I VIP – $153 million.

    3. Larry Ellison

    The CEO of Oracle Corporation splashes out his dollars on the most
    expensive of yachts, islands, private jets, watches, etc. Nothing is too
    costly for the man who happens to be the 8th richest person in the
    world. His most ambitious buy: Hawaiian Paradise – $ 500-600 million.

    4. Richard Branson

    The Virgin Atlantic boss splurges and splurges in style. He is popular
    for his flamboyance and he puts to use the same while buying his
    favourite possessions. His most ambitious buy: Eco Island- $120 million.

    5. Brad Pitt

    One of the best and most popular actors in the world, Brad Pitt is
    well-known for his taste. And apart from buying only the best suits and
    watches for himself, he makes sure the lady in his arms, Angelina Jolie,
    is not left behind. We don’t know if this is the most expensive thing
    he has ever bought, but it does deserve a mention in the list. A
    $390,000 Patek Philippe Minute Repeater as a gift to Angelina Jolie.

    6. Donald Trump

    He dresses rich, he flies rich, he holidays rich and he lives rich.
    Donald Trump is not known for curbing his temptations to buy the best
    for himself. His most ambitious buy: $125 Million Home- The Most
    Expensive House in America.

    7. Roman Abramavich

    The billionaire and the owner of the private investment company
    Millhouse LLC, Roman Abramavich lives life king-size. No matter how
    enormously he spends, the money in his bank account is always stacking up. His most ambitious buy: Eclipse – $800 million.

    8. Jay Leno

    The American stand-up comedian is known for spending lavishly. Subtlety
    has never been an asset to him and his expensive buys have a long list.
    His most ambitious buy: Mercedes SLR McLaren- $450,000.

    9. David Copperfield

    The billionaire from America has quite a liking for islands. His most ambitious buy: A $50 million Island located at Bahamas.

    10. Paris Hilton

    The hotel heiress has always been in news for her lavish lifestyle.
    Taking out a list of her ambitious buys would mean flooding this page
    with plethora of big brand names. Let’s straightway get to her most
    ambitious buy: Diamond studded Bentley GT Continental- $285,000.

    The habit of bending over backwards

    http://blogs.timesofindia.indiatimes.com/TheSiegeWithin/entry/the-habit-of-bending-over-backwards

    Excerpts

    Singh, backed firmly by Sonia Gandhi, has no use for complications. He bends in the hope that one more storm will pass over. But between Pakistan’s intransigence over terrorism, his own capitulation at Sharm el Sheikh within nine months of Mumbai, a succession of Pakistan officials who taunt India on Indian soil, and the mutilation of two Indian soldiers this week along the Rampur-Haji Ali sector, Dr Singh seems to have bent so far that he looks prostrate.

    The media reports on industry kings hailing Modi are just a BIG BIG joke!!

    Mukesh Ambani who was the Congress Ambani hailed Modi and Anil Ambani called him the king among Kings.

    Bharitya of the Jubilant group, husband of Shobahana who owns Hindustan Times, praised Modi and promised more and more investment!!

    Official delegations of US, UK, Canada, Australia, Japan… all praised Modi and invited him for partnership….

    But the jealous sulking media… the rejected second wife … the dumped girlfiredn cried like babes, trying to find new means of deflating modi

    a) Manish Tewari who had hailed Rahul for the total defeat of COngress in Gujarat, like a Gestapo chief said Modi’s progress is like the industrial progress of Nazi Gewrmany

    b) NDTV suddenly said industrial and GDP growth are just bullshit !! Wah NDTV… same channel which interviewd me twice on how to increase GDP growth and foreign investment !!

    c) HIndustan Times relegated everything to inner pages, even though Mr Bhartiya is now firmly committed to Gujarat

    Pathak G and Vindo Sharma just disappeared knowing that they have nothing to say. That their own losing horse Rahul and Vadra are big failures in comparison to Modi!

    HOW RAVI’S PAPA AND ENGRICH CHACHA OPERATE IN KASHMIR:

    I think we people in jammu know the terrible jehadi face of Ravi’s Papa Hafees.

    Please Ravi and Engrich must comment on this news :
    —————————————————–

    Like other jihadi organizations, Lashkar-e-Taiba does not shrink from recruiting young children as terrorist operatives.

    Hindustan Times: Lashkar using kids for terror attacks

    Toufiq Rashid, Hindustan Times
    Srinagar, August 10, 2012

    It was an offer they could not refuse. Poorest of the poor – children of vegetable vendors – Rs. 500 meant a lot to them. So when the man handed them two Rs. 500 notes, just for lobbing a few bombs, the two boys just could not say no. The rest was history.

    Caught on CCTV cameras, the incident of August 2 gained notoriety overnight – two teenage boys lobbing grenades at a police post in Sopore town. They were pushing a handcart. They took cover while throwing a grenade and then melted away into a narrow lane.

    It gave nightmares to security agencies in the Valley. This was the first time Lashkar-e-Taiba used children for terror acts, they said. And the fact that the boys were paid for it – something that has come to light now — has only made matters worse.

    “Children from weaker sections can be easily influenced this way,” said Imtiaz Ahmad, superintendent of police, Sopore, who investigated the case and caught the boys.

    A few other boys have been identified who are hired stone pelters, he said. In time, they can even take up militancy as a livelihood.

    “Children are very vulnerable,” agreed BN Ramesh, inspector general of CRPF based in Srinagar. “There are around 2,000 children in Sopore area alone.”

    The boys involved in the Sopore attack were barely in their teens — one of them was 12 years old, the other 13. Sons of vegetable vendors, they never went to school. The two were released after their families gave personal bonds.

    “We gave them counselling too,” said Ahmed.

    But the bigger question of dealing with children like them, remain.

First approach is communal, second is neutral.I said, people, not Hindus, christians, ST/SC or any such Monikers. So you will be taken much more seriously, if you do advocacy for downtroddens, in place of giving them names like muslims, hindus , Christians and this and that.

    Six men arrested in new Indian ‘bus rape’

    Police in India have arrested six men after they allegedly gang-raped a woman on a bus, just weeks after a similar attack shocked the nation.

    The latest assault is said to have taken place in the northern state of Punjab. The police are searching for a seventh suspected attacker.

    ……..

    Police officials say that the latest victim was a 29-year-old woman.

    She is believed to have been travelling on a bus back to her village on Friday
    night.

    The driver and conductor allegedly refused to stop at her village, instead taking her to a desolate location not far from the city of Amritsar.

    The two men are then believed to have been joined by five others and taken turns raping the woman throughout the night.

    The victim was then dropped off near her village, where she was able to tell her relatives about the attack.

    The extent of the woman’s injuries were not immediately known.

    Rape in Pakistan

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Part of a series onViolence
    against womenIssuesAcid throwing

    The prevalence of rape in Pakistan, the apparent official sanctioning of rape, and the official failure to punish rape, are matters of concern in the international human rights and women’s rights communities. Among types of rape that appear officially sanctioned or go unpunished are “honor rapes” and rapes by police and members of the armed forces. The prevalence of rape received international attention in 2002 after a victim of sexual assault,Mukhtaran Bibi, spoke out and pursued a case against her rapists.Contents [hide]

    [edit]Magnitude of the problem

    The group War Against Rape (WAR) has documented the severity of the rape problem in Pakistan and of police indifference to it.[1] WAR is an NGOwhose mission is to publicize the problem of rape in Pakistan; in a report released in 1992, of 60 reported case of rape, 20% involved police officers. In 2008 the group claimed that several of its members were assaulted by a religious group as they tried to help a woman who had been gang raped identify her assailants.[2] According to Women’s Studies professor Shahla Haeri, rape in Pakistan is “often institutionalized and has the tacit and at times the explicit approval of the state”.[3] According to a study by Human Rights Watch, there is a rape once every two hours[4] and a gang rape every eight.[5] Asma Jahangir, a lawyer and co-founder of the women’s rights group Women’s Action Forum, reported in a 1988 study of female detainees in Punjab that around 72 percent of them stated they had been sexually abused while in custody.[6] In a study of child sexual abuse in Rawalpindi and Islamabad, out of a sample of 300 children 17% claimed to have been abused and in 1997 one child a day was reported as raped, gang raped or kidnapped for sexual gratification.[7]

    ‘Cheat genital mutilation ban by going abroad’: British Muslim leader caught on camera advocating female circumcision

    A British Muslim leader has been caught on camera advocating female genital mutilation.

    Mohammed Abdul, the Imam of a Bristol mosque, was filmed urging a follower to take women and girls abroad so they can be circumcised legally.

    The practise was banned by law in 2003, and it’s illegal to help or encourage anyone to carry out the barbaric procedure overseas.

    The Masjid al-Huda mosque in Bristol, where Muhammed Abdul is an Imam

    The footage was obtained by an undercover reporter working for the Sunday Times newspaper, who posed as a Muslim seeking advice.

    During a meeting with Mohammed Abdul at the Masjid al-Huda mosque: ‘In this country, it is not possible, we cannot do that. (For) any other Muslim who likes to practise the way of Prophet Muhammad, the best way is to go to other countries.

    ‘Some families, they go to Africa or Arab countries.

    NATION ABOVE MONEY
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    (As told by someone from Tata Administrative Services):

    Few months after 26/11, Taj group of Hotels owned by TATAs launched their
    biggest tender ever for remodeling all their Hotels in India and abroad. Some of the companies who applied for that tender were also Pakistanis. To make their bid
    stronger, two big industrialists from Pakistan visited Bombay House (
    Head office of Tata ) in Mumbai without an appointment to meet up with
    Ratan Tata since he was not giving them any prior appointment. They were
    made to sit at the reception of Bombay house and after a few hours a
    message was conveyed to them that Ratan Tata is busy and can not meet anyone without an appointment.

    Frustrated, these two **** industrialists went to Delhi and thru their High
    Commission met up with than Commerce Minister Anand Sharma. Sharma
    immediately called up Ratan Tata requesting him to meet up with the two ****
    Industrialists and consider their tender “enthusiastically”.
    Ratan Tata replied…”you could be shameful, I am not” and kept the phone.
    Few months later when Pakistani government placed an order of Tata Sumos to
    be imported into Pakistan, Ratan Tata refused to ship a single vehicle to
    that country.

    This is the respect and love for motherland that Ratan Tata has. Something that our current Politicians should learn from. You got to stand for something in your life…else you will fall for everything……….

    Awake Country men, Nation is above everything else……

    Mohan,

    this reinforces the image of Ratan Tata as a really great individual and a one of a kind patriot. You may remember how he treated his employees, part time and casual workers in Taj Hotel as well as street vendors who were injured/dead in the 26/11 Pakistani attack on India.

    Pratibha Patil ran a bill of Rs. 18 crore on her last trip

    Press Trust of
    India | Updated: January 14, 2013 11:54 IST

    PEOPLE LIKE ALLAMA TAHIR QADRI IS NEEDED FOR INDIA AS WELL.
    Delhi: Notwithstanding a huge controversy over expenditure on her foreign
    travels, the then President Pratibha Patil ran up a bill of Rs. 18.08 crore on her last trip abroad shortly
    before demitting office, according to official information accessed through
    RTI.

    The chartering of the Air India Boeing 747-400 jumbo for her
    two-nation trip to South Africa and Seychelles from April 29 to May 8 last year
    alone cost Rs. 16.38 crore, the airline
    said in an RTI reply.

    In addition, an expenditure of Rs. 1.46 crore was incurred in Pretoria — the
    South African capital. Of this, Rs. 71.82
    lakh was spent on local stay, 52.33 lakh on transportation and 22.12 lakh on
    miscellaneous expenditure.

    What will be Pratibha Patil’s legacy?
    In Durban, an expenditure of Rs. 23.55 lakh was incurred.

    Of this
    hotel stay alone cost nearly 18 lakh and transportation was Rs. 5.27 lakh.

    The details about the
    lodging and other expenditures in South Africa were provided by the Indian
    Missions in Pretoria and Durban under RTI.

    A huge controversy broke out
    last year when it was revealed that Ms Patil had incurred an expenditure of
    Rs. 205 crore on her 12 foreign trips
    covering 22 countries across four continents during her five-year term which
    ended on July 25 last year.

    These figures were provided before she
    undertook the last visit to South Africa and Seychelles.

    The Rashtrapati
    Bhavan had then defended these visits terming them “necessary” to deepen
    bilateral cooperation. The visits were undertaken after careful appraisal and
    recommendation by the Prime Minister’s Office and the Ministry of External
    Affairs

    Higher Education And Social Mobility Among Muslims And Dalits In India ,

    A Comparative Perspective In The Globalised Times

    By Mr. Ajmal khan

    04 May, 2012

    Countercurrents.org

    This paper is an attempt to see how
    globalisation has impacted the higher education of Muslims and Dalits
    in India in a comparative and historic perspective. Based on the
    different secondary data sets, it tries to show how Dalit community
    across India has utilised the process of globalisation and achieved
    educational and social mobility mobility higher than Muslims, Muslims as
    a homogeneous group didn’t take part in the educational development,
    especially in the higher educational arena where the Scheduled Casts has
    acquired the benefits with the historical interventions that are taken
    place in the pre globalisation era. The growth process of attaining
    higher education by the community was slower than any other
    socio-religious community. It also try to see and understand the double
    burden and deprivation imposed by the Globalisation on the Indian
    Muslims because of lack of overall educational development among the
    community and alienation form the whole process.

    The
    definition of the world globalisation would be depended on who is
    defining and what is the purpose. when it is used in economic context,
    it refers to the reduction and removal of barriers between national
    borders in order to facilitate the flow of goods, capital, services and
    labour. Globalisation is not a new phenomenon. it began towards the end
    of the nineteenth century but it was slow downed in between and raised
    again rapidly during the first quarter of the twentieth century.
    Globalisation is a flow which is very strong, if one is capable enough
    to stand, it will sustain if one is not it will be washed out, Now what
    is the capability or capacity, this capacity is of economic, social,
    political and cultural, when we take Indian society historically, who is
    capable to stand against the flow, the upper cast urban Indian elite,
    this is the section of India that has made tremendous gain from the
    economic process called liberalisation, the indigenous communities,
    Dalits, Tribals and Muslims were the worsely affected groups by this
    process in the India and else where, this vary regional to specific
    community. India started the process of economic globalisation in the
    early of 1978 by taking small steps and during the 1991, the major
    policy changes were adopted and India opened up for liberalisation and
    privatisation. Liberal economic and trade policy, opening up of Indian
    market for the foreign trade and investment, huge privatisation of
    public sector, and highlighted rapid economic growth were the main
    characteristics of this process. In the shadow of this, there were
    claims by the government of India that per capita income have increased
    considerable and huge decrease in the number of people who live under
    the poverty line. But this was later understood as the play with numbers
    by the Planning Commission of India. This huge process have impacted
    directly and indirectly the millions living in India, this was reflected
    in the all sectors, agriculture, industry, health education and even
    culture and lot more in the day today life of every Indian. The process
    of has brought shining economic growth with two digits of GDP, but which
    created the more structural inequalities in the Indian society where
    all ready huge inequality have existed and still persisting. Education,
    especially higher education is one of the sector that has under gone
    tremendous changes in the last two decades. Private universities, market
    based and new generation courses, decreasing public spending, public
    private partnership, internationalisation of education and curricula,
    setting up the campuses of foreign universities, huge private investment
    in education sector especially in higher education make characteristics
    of the changes that have happend in the higher educational sector, how
    far these has impacted a section of society that doest have access to
    higher education historically would unfold educational and economic
    inequality with in the Indian society.

    Higher education and globalisation

    After the independence there was
    tremendous increase in terms of the number of higher educational
    institutions in India , teachers and students. there after also there
    was big increase in the number of universities, teacher and students,
    but how far this jumps where distributed among all the communities and
    groups in India has to be examined to understand how unequal was the
    development that take place in the arena of higher education. The
    national higher education policy adopted in 1986 has emphasized on three
    basic elements, Access, equal access (or equity), Quality and
    Excellence. But the process of development in this sector was
    exclusionary for the sections like scheduled tribes, scheduled casts,
    other backward classes and minorities especially Muslims, which was
    persistent process for a long period after the independence, that still
    continues today. India spends a scandalously small proportion of its
    education budget on schools and remarkably large portion to on higher
    education budget. The poor provision of of free schooling means that a
    disproportionate number of undeserved places at a highly subsidised
    universitys are won by those who have received a private education
    (Smith-2003). This spending on higher education have had fluctuations
    over a period of time but it was never less that what has spend for the
    school education. After the 1991, the higher education sector has began
    to change like anything, emergences of the private university’s, new
    self financing institutions and courses, folds of increase in the
    tuition fee, emergence of self financing institutions, setting up of
    educational regulatory authorities in the state and centre, market and
    industry oriented courses and curricula. its has privatised and became
    as an Industry which provide income, the boom of private higher
    educational institutions has shaped the destiny of the higher education
    where market decide everything. emergence of the new courses, private
    universitys make the recent characteristics in this arena, this has
    “revolutionised” the higher education by restricting the access to a
    small minority they can ‘buy’ higher education which is obviously the
    urban upper cast Indian elite and other economically and socially
    affluent classes.

    Higher educational attainment and Muslims

    To attain higher education one has to
    go through the a long process which start from the primary school
    enrolment, with in this process only a minority reach to the higher
    education and rest of the majority get eliminated, Indeed it is accepted
    that, the higher education is one of the important means of social
    mobility and human development. The development of a community is
    depended upon the educational attainment that a community make, which
    start from the literacy level to higher educational attainment. There is
    a scarcity of studies of the higher educational attainment separately
    for Muslims but Sachar Commission has made an assertion which is more or
    less the reality. Muslims in India perform very weak in all the human
    development indexes compared to their other counter parts, they rank
    considerably lower than national averages and in higher education
    indices they are even below the Scheduled Cast and Scheduled Tribes. 59
    per cent of Muslims are literate when 65 per cent is the national
    average ,
    and just above the scheduled casts and scheduled tribes. But there is a
    trend of declining the literacy growth of the Indian Muslims after the
    2004,- and same time the growth rate of the literacy rate among the
    Muslims are 5.3 when this is 8.7 per cent for the scheduled cast, when
    it come to elementary, secondary enrolments the story is not diffident.
    higher educational attainment of the Muslims in very less as the all
    other educational indicators.

    Performance in the higher education is
    calculated through the Enrolment Ratio which is calculated from Gross
    Enrolment ratio (GER), Net enrolment ratio (NER) and Enrolment of
    Eligible ratio (EER) and the Graduate Enrolment Ratio (GER), the data
    below provided by University Grants Commission on the gross enrolment
    ratio for different socio-religious and cast groups across the country.

    Cast group by religious background in higher education

    Gross Enrolment Ratio (GER%) in age group of 18-23 years as on 2000

    Source: Gender Differentials in Access to Higher Education- UGC.

    The data above provide a picture of
    what extend Indian Muslims are behind the their other counter parts in
    terms of higher educational gross enrolment ratio, here what is
    interesting is the divide of Muslims in higher educational enrolment
    rate is less than half of the Hindu enrolment ratio, this is for total
    Muslims when it come to the ST/SC/OBC Muslims this is really worse, for
    the Christians it is 13.84 which is much above than even Hindus same
    time Sikhs have a ratio of 8.29 which is also higher than that of
    Muslims, this picture emerges when one consider all the religious groups
    as a homogeneous community, now take the categories with in the
    religion like SC, ST and OBC of all the religious groups, among the
    Hindu, Christian and Sikh. The ST and SC Hindu ratio is 5.40 and 3.83,
    for Christian ST and SC the ratio is 6.17 and 6.76 subsequently when it
    come to the Sikhs also the ratio is well above the Muslim ST and SCs. so
    it is clear that the higher educational attainment of the categories
    with in the Muslim community is far below to the same categories of the
    all other religious groups. Now lets look at the condition of Muslim
    OBCs which constitute about more than forty per cent of the Indian
    Muslims, the tables give clear evidences that the Muslim OBCs are far
    behind all the other religious groups even if it is for the Christians
    and Shiks, both are categorised as equal minority community same as
    Muslims. This data from 1999-2000 which make this relevant that the
    changes have happen in India post globalisation era both the market
    driven economy and market oriented higher education where Muslims as
    homogeneous group could not participate or take benefits as their any
    counter parts in India.

    Source: Sahcar commission Report, according to the census 2001

    According to 2001 census data seven
    percentage of the population aged twenty years and above are hold any
    diploma, This proportion is less than 4 per cent among the Muslims,
    apart form this, the proportion of the population that having technical
    education at the age of eighteen and above are lowest among the Muslims
    which is merely one per cent, which shows the terrible backwardness of
    the Indian Muslims in higher education. This is also highlighted by the
    Sachar Commission appointed by Government of India, so it is clearly
    evident that Indian Muslims are higher educationally backward than any
    other socio- religious community, now l shall examine their backwardness
    in comparison with the Scheduled Cast in India taking them as a
    homogeneous social group.

    Dalits and higher educational attainment

    Historically Dalits or the scheduled
    castes are one of the most marginalised group in India in all walks of
    life, that still persist in many sectors even today. but there are some
    remarkable mobility that Daliths In India have made as a homogeneous
    community, and some specific mobility in terms of community specific and
    regional specific. Still the literacy level for the seduced cast remain
    as the lest developed groups in India . In all indicators, the
    historical intervention of the reservation have had made changes, the SC
    elites to utilise these and come up and attain the socio-economic and
    political mobility. The story of Scheduled cats in India is unlike the
    Muslims, There were mobilised efforts among the scheduled caste for the
    approval and social recognition, this has expressed through the Dalit
    mobilisation in several forms which has also helped Dalits for the
    social mobility in some states and districts will also vary from region.
    Despite all these SCs remain as the single homogeneous group which is
    least developed in social and economic terms with scheduled tribes and
    other backward classes.

    When one consider Dalits as a
    homogeneous community and assess their higher educational attainment
    during post independence to the post liberalisation period, the event
    that to be mentioned is the historic reservation policy and the
    subsequent changes among the scheduled cast in India, even if which has
    helped more elite or middle class among them, the literacy rate of
    Scheduled Castes for all India was 54.69 per cent according to the 2001
    census data which is far below the national average but according to the
    Human Development report of India 2011, the growth of SC literacy rate
    is is 8.7 when this is 5.3 among the Muslims according to the same
    report, so there has been a increase in the growth of the SC literacy
    rate as compared to Muslims which will also reflect in the all other
    educational enrolment in the future, the growth rate of the higher
    educational attainment among the SC is also much higher than Muslims,
    even if Muslims as group are above in the higher educational enrolment
    rate that scheduled cast, which points to the need of the urgent
    attention of both state and community to work on the higher educational
    development of the Muslims. A comparison between Muslims and SCs/STs in
    terms of Graduate Attainment Ratio also reveals interesting results.
    Initially, Muslims had a marginally higher Graduation Attainment Rate
    (GAR) than SCs/STs. In the initial phases of planning, the SCs/STs had
    performed more slowly and this had led to a slight widening of the gap
    between them and the Muslims. In the 1970s, however, the GARs for
    SCs/STs grew at a faster rate than for Muslims. This led to convergence
    in the GAR of Muslims and SCs/STs. In fact, among urban males, the
    convergence process had begun in the 1950s itself, and had resulted in
    SCs/STs over taking Muslim males after the 1970s; it also resulted in
    the current significantly higher levels (Sachar-2006) which openly
    reveal the reflections of the reservation policy in the enrolment of the
    higher educational institutions and colleges adopted by the government
    of India. Here it is also important to look at which are the sectors
    that have made so called boom during the post liberalisation period
    which will give a picture of the need of higher education, especially
    the industry based higher education. IT and allies sectors, Telecom,
    private health care, Education, Communication and technology,
    Infrastructure etc.. which are privately managed has shown the growth,
    these all sectors need highly qualified professionals as their work
    force where the higher educated urban upper and middle class work.

    Concluding remarks

    Higher educational sector in India has
    changed in the shadow of the liberalisation policy after the 1991, the
    post globalised world need only industry based market oriented higher
    educated manpower, the traditionally disadvantaged groups like,
    Scheduled casts, secluded tries, other backward classes and Muslims are
    far behind the advanced groups not only attaining the higher education,
    but the traditional deprivation and lack of education, skill and
    knowledge in the globalised context which make them dually marginalised.
    The government policy of reservations in education and employment
    spheres has played a remarkable role for Dalits and Adivasis. Even thou
    there were criticisms on implementation side, the reservation facilities
    have given certain economic means of livelihood to over 1.5 million
    Dalits, for instance. Besides, over 50,000 Dalits could enter the field
    of government authority so far which Muslims couldn’t avail.
    Implementation of the protective discrimination policy and emergence of a
    effectively taking benefits from new world order. Which enabled Dalits,
    here Dalits are not counted as a homogeneous community but the section
    of Dalits which has utilised the reservation policy and reached in the
    higher education, this section has made the social mobility which will
    vary from state to state, district to district, community to community,
    cast to cast across the country among this disadvantaged groups. Muslims
    occupy prominent position in terms of educational attainment,
    especially higher educational attainment, the growth of this community
    is also slow in comparison with the SCs and STs which recently again
    reiterated by the India human development report-2011 after the Sachar
    Commission report . In this article what is attempted to see is, how far
    Muslims in India as a homogeneous community is behind the all other
    communities in higher educational attainment, and how Scheduled Cast in
    India has made progress in the higher educational attainment higher than
    Muslims in the context of globalisation and their social mobility
    through the higher educational mobility in the post-globalised India
    with the help of protective discrimination policy and same time the
    marginalisation of the Indian Muslim from the whole process of
    globalisation and exclusionary and discriminatory process of higher
    educational development of India in the era of globalisation and
    alienated experience of globalisation by the Indian Muslims which is
    more or less as a homogeneous community which also points the need for
    the action by the state and from with in the community, then the
    deprivation of being a Muslim scheduled cast, scheduled tribes and other
    backward class even with in the general umbrella of Muslims.

    IS WIND REALLY CHANGING FOR NARENDRA MODI?:

    The bete noire of NDTV , Modi seemed to have finally shaken the channel into acknowledging that he is the best for business. I was thoroughly surprised to read this on NDTV. Despite being in the midst of forensically trying to trace the payments made by a power major on its Euroloan, I am shaken up enough to post it here for all to read.

    Narendra Modi basks in rock star reception at ‘Vibrant Gujarat’ summit

    Reuters | Updated: January 14, 2013 15:55 IST

    Gandhinagar, Gujarat: Mukesh Ambani, India’s most powerful businessman and Asia’s second-richest person, would not ordinarily sit on a stage for three-and-a-half hours without access to a cellphone, but this was not just anybody’s event.

    Narendra Modi, the chief minister of Gujarat drew a rock star’s reception from the cream of India’s tycoon class as well as diplomats at his “Vibrant Gujarat Summit” last week.

    In one memorable image from the event to promote investment in a state that has become an industrial powerhouse, the white-bearded Mr Modi, assembled diplomats and the country’s top business leaders, including the Ambani brothers, raised hands together as the packed auditorium cheered.

    ‘”He’s getting hero worship today. Quite dramatic,” said Robin Phinney, CEO of Karnalyte Resources, a Canada-based potash miner in which state-owned Gujarat State Fertilizers and Chemicals took a 20 per cent stake last week, said at the start of the three-day event on Friday.

    “When I came here I had no idea this was going on. Seems like the industry really likes what he’s doing,” he told Reuters.

    Tycoons and diplomats lavished praise on Mr Modi, seeming eager to mark their presence in front of the man many in business feel should lead India despite a controversial past that makes him one of the country’s most divisive politicians.

    Mr Modi avoids talk of higher office, but his popularity in the state, as well as with business and many in India’s emerging urban middle class, is fueling speculation he will lead his Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) against the ruling Congress in national elections to be held by 2014.

    His record as a pro-business leader presiding over a state government that wins praise for efficient administration stands in contrast to the eight-year tenure of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s government, which has been stymied by fractious coalition partners and a string of corruption scandals.

    While big business tends to hedge its bets by backing both the main national parties in elections, industry’s support for Mr Modi could prove a powerful source of fund-raising if he becomes the party’s standard-bearer.

    The black mark against Mr Modi, 62, is the accusation by critics that he did not do enough to stop the riots in 2002 that killed as many as 2,000 people, most of them Muslims.

    That episode led the United States to deny Mr Modi a visa in 2005, although U.S.-India Business Council President Ron Somers praised Mr Modi at the investment summit for enabling Gujarat’s “stunning progress”.

    Peter Hass, the U.S. Consul General in Mumbai, also attended the event on Friday but did not appear on stage.

    However, British High Commissioner James Bevan was among those joining hands onstage on Friday, and in his remarks focused on the close links between Gujarat and the United Kingdom, which has a large Gujarati community.

    In October, the British envoy visited Mr Modi to discuss business and investment, ending a 10-year U.K. diplomatic boycott imposed on him for failing to stop the Gujarat riots.

    ‘A LORD OF MEN’

    Some of the most effusive praise came from Anil Ambani, Mukesh’s younger brother and head of India’s third-largest telecoms company, who called him “a lord of men” and asked for a standing ovation for the chief minister.

    The Ambani brothers, who are of Gujarati origin, both exchanged hugs onstage with Mr Modi at Friday’s standing-room-only opening ceremony in a 5,000-seat auditorium

    Ratan Tata, the recently-retired chairman of India’s biggest corporate, the Tata group, praised Mr Modi’s efficient administration. His successor, Cyrus Mistry, appearing nervous in his first public speech since taking over late last month, thanked Mr Modi during Saturday’s closing session for personally inviting him.

    Mr Modi first held the Vibrant Gujarat event in 2003 to attract investment after the violence and an earthquake in 2001, and over the years it has become an increasingly big stage for Mr Modi to market the state, and himself.

    As is often the case with events that Mr Modi attends, cellphone signals were jammed for security purposes.

    “We are here because we want to be part of the economic miracle that is Gujarat. We are hoping to deepen this relationship,” Canada’s minister for immigration and multi-culturalism, Jason Kenney, told delegates. Canada, along with Japan, was a partner country for the event.

    Mr Modi, fresh from a resounding December win in state legislative elections for the BJP, sat mostly unsmiling during the fulsome adulation.

    “All these people who are greeting us, trying to speak our language, they just want to be part of our economic success,” he said as the event closed.

    Vinoo,

    coming from NDTV, this is really high praise. There is a subtle change in the stridency of attack too. Heretofore, it was always Modi being personally responsible for the riots and it was always a “Muslims only” pogrom. Now it says that ‘he didn’t do enough to stop the riots that almost killed 2000 people, mostly Muslims’

    Let us see how the weather **** moves with Vinodji.

    Wiki-Limericks : MMS, PC, Madam and the Klown-Prince of Italy

    Tragic Comedy

    There once was an “Economics-Genius” named MMS

    Who was servile to Famiglia-Maino in excess

    He lost sleep when the man held in Oz

    Turned out to be an Indian Moz

    EVMs, CEC & Vote-Banks gave MMS election-success.

    The Nation’s resources MMS gave to the Minority-Community

    Denying the Majority the Right to have Equal-Opportunity

    To any who probed, loftily he did declare :

    ” Of not one single scam am I even aware,

    And as Caesar’s-Wife, I have Diplomatic-Immunity.”

    Protest his innocence loudly though he might

    As MMS assures the Nation that all is right

    Clearly, no clothes does our Emperor wear

    Even as he clings to the Royal-Chair

    From which the Nation wishes he would alight.

    There once was an erudite gentleman named PC

    Any mention of ‘Sivaganga’ made him very queasy

    Thrice-counted were the Votes, to ensure Error

    Wherever he looked, he saw only “Saffron-Terror”

    Wonder what he’s hiding under his Veshti !

    There once was a lady named Antonia

    Who fancied herself Queen of India

    She could barely speak Hindi

    Yet claimed to be a Gandhi

    Which made Indians forget she was a Phony-ia.

    Antonia broke her little toe-nail, and grew very afraid

    Then flew off to the US to get American Medical Aid

    Fumed Dr. MMS, “I could have fixed her toe-nail for free

    For I am a Real-Doctor, does our Madam not trust me ?

    All it would have taken me is a 5-Rupee-Band-Aid.”

    There once was a lad named Raoul Maino

    Who was less Indian and more Italiano

    He never studied or worked at any job

    For he had the backing of the Eyetalian Mob

    And his Bofors-Billions safe with Uncle Ottavio.

    A Right-Royal Dunce is this our mediocre Amul-Baby

    Fit only to be Klown-Prince of Mafiosi Sicily & Italy

    But his great-grand-dad, then his grandma Indira

    And then his dad, all jumped onto the Throne of India

    So, now we’re stuck with the Amul-Baby and its Mommy !

    Frankly after seeing many balance sheets of media houses, in India and UK, I have never been too surprised by the tilt the news gets once the media houses sense business.

    Most papers will support the central government as the owners have a stake in keeping the government happy. This Congress government of lawyers has been very very manipulative in crony capitalist contracts and income tax notces.

    However the warmth Modi has recieved earmarks him as a person who loves business and provides a clean fast adminstration for doing so.

    I think many media groups will see a change of heart.

    You quoted a very lengthy article and as I am travelling, it will not be possible for me to read it in toto. However, I read it quickly along with its summary and based on that, I would like to answer you, though in brief.
    You quoted all the statistics, written by a scholar and if I am not mistaken, a muslim scholar. whatever statistics he has provided, I will take them on its facevalue. So muslims are most backward people, yes, it looks like that. But the question is Why?? Give me your thoughts about it. Honest thoughts. Till you leave the language of rhetorics, jargons, you will not exert your mind to think over this. I want your honest answer that why Muslims are backwards in educational field.
    Let me hear this from you. Let me alert you here, it is very convenient and comfortable to go back to same old pattern, very tempting, but if you are looking at problems sincerely, you will have to tax your brain. I seldom quote others, I write, what I feel after deliberations in my mind.

    A good question, why they are in a confrontational mode, throughout world. It is important to understand the psych. One, very simple reason, may be right, may be wrong, that, Islam was a politically important civilization only few centuries back. The important word is politically( though, I believe, Islam is inherently political along with social and societal) but that is a different topic. And yes, even in western democracies, Muslims are not exactly known for their educational achievements. Exceptions, only prove the rule.

    Since I am obliquely referred to here, I feel obliged to join in.

    Why the question about structural backwardness ONLY among Muslims, why not include in your question other communities which are similarly backward, with regards to their educational achievements, such as Tribals, Forest Dwellers, Dalits and even some OBCs. Each of these communities, when compared against national norms, are significantly backward.

    Whilst one may mistakenly blame Islam in the case of Muslims, what excuse would you offer on behalf of other communities?

    Once you explore this scientifically, then you will find that Muslim converts from upper castes do relatively better and are comparable to their peers in Hinduism and Christianity.

    Classical example is Iqbal whose grandfather was a Kashmiri Brahmin. Whereas Muslim converts from lower strata of Hindu society are no more backward than the Hindu caste from which they converted.

    Why is it that Jews, proportionally speaking, do much better than any other community. Perhaps because Historically the society has stolen their posessions, where as education can not be stolen. Einstien is a classical example.

    As I had taken your leave for sometime, I was reluctant to speak to you. But it seems that, you have come here to the rescue of Engrich. I wanted to engage with Engrich as in his simplicity, he is ignoring facts and sticking to Hindu versus Muslim equations. There are so many contradictions in his own statements that it requires lot of patience to point them out to him. You are more coherent but, even in your this reply, I can see some contradictions, one being, that it is not Hindu versus Muslim versus Christians versus Sikhs versus Parsis etc. You are accepting that conversion from high caste hindus to muslim is no barrier to educational progress. Agree.
    Your second point, there are similar backwardness amongst Dalits, OBCs, Tribals and forest dwellers is also correct. Agree.
    But, what is your point?? I understand that you are saying that being Muslim is not the criteria for backwardness, is it not?? Agree. IT IS NOT and IT IS.
    According to statistics available today, Dalits, Tribals and OBCs and Forest dwellers have progressed and Muslims have become even worse off, as per statistics. Is it correct??
    So, whether this being behind even Dalits has some reason?? I AM ASKING THIS PARTICULAR QUESTION. Did Lower caste Muslims and other Dalits, OBCs, Tribals, Forest dwellers, started at same level or different level??

    Ravi;
    I did not read your reply fully as still I am in office.
    When I read your question, I found that you are asking me, whether I am in favor of upliftment of dalits, Tribals, Forest dweller, OBCs or against it. Now, Now, If I am advocating social upliftment of Akbaruddin,( only symbolic) with whom, I have no emotional relationship- you know, why-, then, why I will not support upliftment of Ravi(symbolic) with whose name I can associate myself in someway or other. Even, Matru, Bijlee and Mandola are OK as they relate to words about whom, I understand something. So question of opposing DALITS, OBCs is unfructus.

    Aiyar seeks certificates of innocence for Muslim youthSPECIAL CORRESPONDENT

    SHARE · COMMENT · PRINT · T+ TOPICSIndiaAndhra Pradesh
    social issue

    Rajya Sabha MP blames TV channels for promoting communal hate campaigns to boost their viewership ratings

    Congress
    MP and former Union Minister Mani Shankar Aiyar demanded certificates
    of innocence from the Central government to Muslim youth who were
    needlessly arrested in terrorist incidents as part of their
    rehabilitation.

    The
    certificates will help them erase the stigma of having led a jail life.
    Otherwise, who will give them jobs, Mr. Aiyar asked at a meeting with
    the theme ‘Politics of terror targeting Muslim youth’ which was
    organised by the People’s Campaign Against Politics of Terror.

    He
    ridiculed that the governments were more anxious to extend relief and
    rehabilitation to industrialists but not the poor. Thus, the Ambanis,
    Tatas and Birlas got a tax relief of Rs five lakh crore a year in a bid
    to give a push to the economy.

    He
    said the demolition of Babri Masjid marked the breakdown of secular
    fabric in the country and the problem only worsened after that. He
    blamed the TV channels for promoting communal hate campaigns to improve
    their viewership ratings.

    Narrating
    his experience as the first Consul General of India in Pakistan, Mr.
    Aiyar said he had received four lakh applications for visa to visit
    Hyderabad. But, not a single visitor turned out to be a terrorist. On
    the other hand, lakhs of Muslims in India faced repression from police.

    FASCIST REGIME

    Former
    CPI general secretary A.B. Bardhan said the new legislations in the
    name of strengthening security were converting the country into a
    fascist regime.

    Rajya
    Sabha member from Uttar Pradesh Mohammed Adeeb said a deliberate
    attempt was made by right-wing forces to confuse 60 crore population of
    secular non-Muslims in the country.

    The
    meeting was also addressed by rights activists, including a BBC
    correspondent Mohammed Iqbal Ahmed who said the presence of Muslims in
    large numbers in Parliament and Assemblies did not mean violence against
    the community will come down. There were nine riots already in Uttar
    Pradesh where 69 Muslims were elected as MLAs in a house of 470

    The world is worried by the march of this violent confrontational ideology which is unchnging despite the social changes and the scientific progress of the past few centuries

    Here is my FORENSIC assessment of how Muslims can change for the betterment of the world and MOST IMPORTANT for themselves

    a) Drop IDOL worship: Muslims claim that Islam allows no idols but in the end some unsavoury preaCHERS HAVE BECOME THE IDOLS AND SO HAS THE BOOK. Try insulting or even questioning Osama in Pakistan and Hafees Saeed or for that matter any big preacher you are as good as dead. In case you find fault with what is written in Hadith or Koran, prepare to become Salman Rushdie or Taslima or be beheaded

    b) Stop BRUTE MAJORITISM : In most Muslim majority countries, Sharia and Islam are the governning laws. Even Engrich and Ravi who are in dialogue here will find no fault wih this idea. What space does it leave for the Non Muslims— ZERO.

    Forget Non Muslims. Even liberal Muslims or Muslims from breakaway LIBERAL sects like AHemadiya or Sufi are butchered.

    So all this Muslim minority pampering in India will only pave the way for saluting the ideals of Brute majoritism of Muslim countries.

    c) Muslims should stop repression of women and minorities: They perform less in all education and deverlopment indices as the thoughts are governed by Koran which gives the woman a low place. Ask ENgirch or Ravi. They will defend the idea of 90 yr old Arab men forcefully marrying 14 yr old Hyedrabadi girls. This is sanctified rape.

    Indian farmers better than scientists: Nobel laureate Joseph

    Nobel laureate Joseph E Stiglitz is impressed by the organic farming practices
    in Bihar’s Nalanda district, terming its practitioners “better than scientists”
    and calling for their experiences to be researched so that these can be
    replicated elsewhere.

    “Indian farmers are better

    than scientists,” Stiglitz said in Patna
    after visiting organic farmers in Nalanda, the home
    district of chief minister Nitish Kumar.

    “It was amazing to see their success in organic farming. Agriculture
    scientists from across the world should visit their farm land to learn and be
    inspired by them,” said Stiglitz, a professor of economics at the prestigious
    Columbia University and here to deliver the Asian Development Research
    Foundation Lecture 2013.

    “There is a need to take the experiences of these farmers seriously and go
    for research to give a scientific approach to adopt it outside,” he added.

    According to Chanchal Kumar, a senior government official who accompanied
    Stiglitz, the economist minutely inquired about the techniques.

    He said that Stiglitz also told farmers that the increasing trend of organic
    farming is good for the health too.

    Bihar is turning its attention to popularising and promoting organic farming
    in the state to usher in a new “Green Revolution” in agriculture.

    The Nitish Kumar government has already decided to promote organic farming in
    at least one village of the state’s 37 districts. It launched an “organic
    farming promotion programme” over a year ago, intended to develop organic grams
    (organic villages).

    A sum of Rs. 255 crore (nearly 50 million USD)
    has been sanctioned for development of organic farming, said an official of the
    agriculture department.

    The new techniques however did not have many takers in the beginning.

    “Initially the farmers were reluctant to adopt organic farming despite the
    state government providing free seeds, fertiliser and experts to guide them. But
    now more farmers have expressed interest in adopting the method of farming,”
    said a district official in Nalanda.

    Last year, a young farmer of Darveshpura village in Nalanda set what is
    claimed to be a world record in potato production through organic farming.
    Earlier, farmers of the same village created a world record by producing 224
    quintals of paddy per hectare.

    Nitish Kumar has repeatedly said that he wants to have one or two agriculture
    products from the state on the plate of every Indian in the coming years.

    “Several steps, including promotion of modern techniques of farming, organic
    farming and use of improved seeds, have been taken in the last two-three years,
    but it is still a long way to go in developing the agriculture sector,” said the
    agriculture department official.

    Agriculture is the backbone of Bihar’s economy, employing 81% of workforce
    and generating nearly 42% of the state’s domestic product, according to the
    state government

Visualize how someone very unlucky to be born in this cult goes through very strong environment of Fear ( God, Hell , friends spying on each other ) as also hate of others outside THE CULT. ENGRICH’s brain has been fashioned to work in the way you see in his responses.

    I find it very interesting How individual Humans can and have reached lofty heights in all fields. It also immensely fascinates me to know how humans with similar intellect can and have sunk to miserable lows in all fields. A hate and Fear filled ideology is sure shot way to make you a brainwashed zombie. ENGRICH is a shining example of this human perversity.

    Actually I don’t blame him completely. It is THE IDEOLOGY that has made him what he is. You and me also could have been similarly impaired if we also had misfortune of being born in THE CULT. So let us do something about this Ideology otherwise millions of these Engrich are born and will always get born.

    There are many people like Engrich but you cannot paint all the Muslims with the same brush. Staying here in Dubai since many years I have come across many Muslims – some of them are my very close friends – , I can confidently claim that people like Engrich who live in denial are in minority.
    I don’t blame Engrich too as he actually believes in whatever he writes.
    And yes I agree with you that it is futile discussing with him .

    Human beings per se are not bad. I remember there were no barriers in India in the 70s and 80s when I grew up. All this Islamic fantascism really took shape in India after Punjab after Gen Zia took over in Pakistan.

    I hope there is a movement , a shakeup in Muslims one day soon so that people are able to dissect the shortcomings of religion, even Islam.

    I have pleasant memories of Dubai. Surprisingly Many Arabs I met were not so religious, as much as say the leaders of Muslims in India.

    Indian netas are scared of Janata’s chappals and shoes:

    Saw an item in India Today which talks about people being asked to remove shoes in cased they want to meet Rahul Gandhi. Dont know if it is good or bad that Political leaders are afraid of shoe attacks:

    —————- from HT—–

    Later, Rahul went Gauriganj to attend a meeting of various women Self Help Groups (SHGs).

    Over 2000 women of the SHGs of Rajiv Gandhi Charitable Trust from across the state, who were invited to attend the meeting at Navodaya Vidyalay surprised the onlookers by removing their footwear before entering the venue.

    Although there was a strong rumour that they had been asked by the security personal to remove their slippers, sandals and shoes, the women later said it was their personal choice.

    “We all removed our footwear on our own. Nobody asked us to do so. We thought it would be comfortable for us. Although there was chair for us, we thought we have to sit on the floor”, said Indra Mati, a member of the SHG from Deoria district.

    While waiting for security check, they removed their footwear and sat in the school ground in queues according to their districts. Later on they went barefoot inside the venue. Media was kept at bay from the venue.

    Food for thought and fun!!

    Just read a news item that Indians had travelled to Australia 4000 years back and are the original inhabitants!!

    I think we should all claim Australia now!

    From NDTV!

    Melbourne: A new study has revealed that Indians may have migrated to Australia about 4000 years ago and mixed with Aborigines before Europeans colonised the continent.

    According to media reports in Melbourne, German researchers found evidence in their latest study that will be published in the proceedings of National Academy of Sciences.

    “It could have been by people actually moving, physically travelling from India directly to Australia, or their genetic material could have moved in terms of contact between India and neighbouring populations who then had contact with other neighbour populations and eventually, there would have been contact with Australia,” quoting Mark Stoneking from Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Germany, ABC News has reported.

    i agree with your comments. the government can do no better job than destroy all sadhus and mahatmas starting with Ramdev who has been talking in favor of Modi a lot.
